Pros: "Felt safe and sanitary"

Cons: "Despite the fact that I fell skiing and broke my elbow, requiring surgery, for which I sent a copy of the medical procedures, Aeromexico was the ONLY part of my trip, other flights and hotels, that refused to offer me a change of date option. Terrible customer service."

Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."

Cons: "Touch screens on the in-seat TV were not sensitive enough, technology on board was somewhat outdated."

Pros: "The plane was clean and well staffed. The crew was nice and helpful if I needed anything. The snacks and drinks are decent and what you would expect: small bags of pretzels or cookies and your choice of Coke product or coffee. Using the mobile Delta app made boarding and finding my gate a breeze."
Cons: "The seats were hard, and it was hard to fall asleep."

Pros: "Service and staff"

Pros: "Decent food"
Cons: "Bad delay Flight attendants not friendly"

Cons: "Short flight didn't provide food or beverage service. Cabin crew announcements were rapid & muffled, difficult or impossible to hear or understand. Would not have felt confident if there'd been an emergency."

Pros: "Overall this was a great flight. The entertainment system wasn't always working, but I was reading and its a short flight, so I didn't really care."

Cons: "lack of carry on luggage space. very tight. gate agents did not care about the customers. I had to stick my bag under the seat and only half would fit so my feet did not fit with my bag. it was a back pack. I do not prefer checking luggage since I've had so many bad experiences."

Pros: "The entertainment console worked this time. Over the past year it has worked only about half of the time."
Cons: "GpldMedallion holder, first SkyPriority people to board, sitting in Delta Comfort and still could not get overhead bin space by my seat."

Pros: "Enough said"

Pros: "Fairly comfortable, seated in an exit row. It was an early flight on an A319. Always nice to have free seat back entertainment. Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"

Cons: "The small plane. It was cold the whole flight. The flight attendant woke me up right before landing just to make sure I had my seatbelt on. Why was that necessary? I'm not a child. Just because I was covered in my blanket he assumed I was using that to cover up that I took my seatbelt off. He also told me to put my purse on the floor which was odd to me because when I was on the flight Saturday Oct 10 from MSP to LSE the flight attendant never said anything."

Pros: "All restroom floors were wet. I have seen this in others 767's too. Is this a 767 phenomenon"

Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were true heroes, they did they're absolute best in a terrible situation."
Cons: "American Airlines once again fails to provide the required number of flights and crews for a holiday weekend, and did a terrible job of letting passengers know what the situation with their flights are."

Cons: "food"

Cons: "That’s ok"

Pros: "The crew was nice"

Pros: "great trip and crew"

Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"

Pros: "What to like with AA?"
Cons: "Delayed by 2:38 hours at Chicago due to aircaft repair. Total layover 8:38 hours."

Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."

Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."

Pros: "We didn't go to Dallas!"
Cons: "We didn't like the London Airport and we didn't get enough to eat and drink. We flew from London to Seattle Airport (SEA). From there we had to take an Alaska Air Flight to Salt Lake City (SLC) We had a difficult time finding the terminal for our flight to (SLC). . Alaska Air Broke one of the wheels on my suit case."

Cons: "Entertainment screen was not operating satisfactorily"

Cons: "3h delay for maintenance, missed my connection, added 12 hours to my travel time."

Pros: "This wasn't a British Airlines flight! We ended up being on a crappy, ancient American Airlines flight instead of the BA flight we had booked. It is very duplicitous to purchase a ticket for an airline with a great reputation and end up on a genuinely lousy flight on a totally different airline (especially one like American, that I would never book!)."

Cons: "."

Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "The crew did the best they could after 3 delays and having to then get off the plane for another hour while a tire was changed."
Cons: "This entire flight was pretty god awful. The plane itself was the old MD-80 which looks and feels like a museum reject."

Cons: "I was trying to check two bags, and I get three free bags. My one bag was my wife's bike in a case and it as 60 pounds and the other was a suitcase that was only 20. They made us take stuff out of the bike case and move it to the suitcase to get it below 50 pounds. Ridiculously nitpicky. It's the same overall weight..."

Pros: "Thomas of the crew gave incredible service."
Cons: "Both to and from the seat didn't fully function and both ways the entertainment system broke down"

Cons: "Pilots flight like crazy and the second plane was dirty"

Pros: "Personal TV had a large variety of new movies. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Pull down tray was not clean (had a left over food from last trip)"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great, and the plane wasn't completely full so there was a little room to stretch out. And you'll never hear me complain that American Ninja Warrior is on tv."
Cons: "The plane was late, and I had a connecting flight. Luckily I made it in time, but my connector, despite also being American Airlines, was in a different section of the airport. And the seat was really uncomfortable when sat in for two hours."

Pros: "The rebooking services provided by Tawanna, who was very pleasant and helpful in a stressful time."
Cons: "Not getting home."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "My window seat was all."
Cons: "I didn't get a call about the delay like other passengers, only an email at 7am as I was in line to check in for the 8:25am flight 395. The female crew members, a dark haired woman and a short blond haired woman both would have ignored me if the other two people seated by me did not also try to get their attention. The dark haired woman gave the guy next to me headphones and when I held out my hand she just looked at me and walked away as if she'd been called away. Which she hadn't she came back and started with the row immediately behind us and the guy next to me was nice enough to give me his. Also after nearly waiting 4 hours, 9 minutes before boarding we were given food vouchers and told to "run and hurry" and get food "to go" so most people didn't even bother using the vouchers because of that. I've had better flights with American Airlines, I just didn't know this one would be so poor. Definitely way below average expectations."

Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."

I went to another gate and she tried to call the attendant at the door. She didn't respond because her phone was at the desk. I was frustrated I didn't get on while I could see she was talking with people at the gate and in the airplane-- but I should have been there earlier.
