The counter person would not let me check in even though I still had good 45 mins before take off. AND THE PLANE WAS DELAYED BY 40 MINUTES ANYWAY! I never made the flight, had to take train."
Cons: "The entire Delta customer service was a nightmare. Delayed flights, literally lying supervisor who escalated a dispute, absurdly poor service. ASSISTING A PASSENGER WITH A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER DELTA FLIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE WAS DELAYED IS "NOT A GUARANTEED SERVICE". Seriously, it is basic courtesy!"

Pros: "Not very crowded"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."
Pros: "Very pleasant customer service, excellent bag delivery service."

Cons: "No delays."
Pros: "Plane and flight were ok"

Cons: "The seat was a bit uncomfortable and not big enough."
Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."
Pros: "On time departure, clean plane, competent and professional flight attendants, pilot announcements were clear and relevant"
Cons: "Check in took forever. Delta reservations made some type of mistake when they cancelled our flight to CUN and I needed to rebook the flight. It took the CUN counter agent about 30 minutes to correct their mistake. Then, as we boarded our flight, the bar code reader at the gate indicated another error that the gate agent took about 10 minutes to correct. CUN Delta staff was great and we appreciated the efforts they made to direct us around the airport."
Cons: "Nice Flight"
Pros: "Crew was great! Aircraft had the tv’s in the back of the seats, so we got to watch movies and be entertained. Flight was smooth and landing was perfect. Couldn’t ask for better!"
Cons: "Everything went great!"
Pros: "Crew excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was crowded!"
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with the other flight"
Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."
Pros: "Boarding very well done."

Pros: "Yes! The crew was amazing! The seat was perfect!"

Cons: "The seating was not good middle seat I like windows"
Cons: "Comfort level of plane."
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "Lots of leg room for such a small plane."
Cons: "AA did not update the flight status. My inbound flight was delayed due to weather but AA kept reporting the connecting flight as on time. I ended up making the connection with time to spare. If AA had reported the delayed departure I would have stopped for food. My bag did not make the connection."
Pros: "Everything was very smooth and pleasant overall."
Pros: "I really like that they free inflight WiFi and entertainment. The seats are little more comfortable than other airlines. The service was great too."

Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"
Pros: "Safety, close to on-time arrival, although irrelevant since bags took 45 minutes."
Cons: "No water bottles available for individual use. Crew only came through once or twice offering small cups of water. I'm dehydrated today with headache. No charging outlets in the 2018! OUTRAGEOUS. A bunch of bags still had not come down 40 minutes after arrival. Worst: just before landing, when the captain advised the flight crew to do a cross-check, it was not done, and when we landed, I realized my seatbelt was not on."
Pros: "seats were roomy, left early"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Thanks for the cheap flight. Oh wait, still over $200 and they passed out iceless water. Why can't they give coffee as an option or heaven forbid, anything other than iceless water?"
Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."
Pros: "Seats had good leg room, and the current movies were free (unlike on the United flight I took a short while ago). Boarding was quick."

Cons: "paying extra for a small seat was really frustrating"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Pros: "Very simple process. Easiest trip ever. Baggage was easy. Nice staff."
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Didn't like being grounded in Charleston because we were on a commuter flight while our AA connections was allowed to land in Charlotte and leave without us. Did not know AA operated flights receive priority at the airports over their inferior non-AA operated "partners". Will look for alternatives to AA in the future. Flight too short for a drink! No lodging because not their fault! Okay, storm not their fault, faulty policy is!"
Pros: "Can't think of anything at this time"
Cons: "Bought this ticket as gift for my grandson. His departing flight was 4 hours late! Therefore the people picking him up in L.A. Had to pick him up after midnight instead of 8pm. Airline wouldn't try to get him a seat on another airline to help the situation. Thought I was booking this on Alaskan airline but turns out they used American. Will never use this sight again. Going to book directly with actual airline next time"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, seat was not clean."
Pros: "Pleasant flight for the hour ride. Not bumpy at all."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour because crew announced there was a discrepancy between # passengers boarding central records. Flight crew didn't do anything to comfort passengers during this. Captain made one announcement about turbulence once at the beginning but nothing else for 1/2 hour or longer long turbulence period. Crew took away tray without asking. Ran out of water. Doors did not open for quite awhile after docking but crew said nothing. Seats so small one had to keep elbows glued to body to eat without touching neighbors. Felt like cattle being driven to slaughter. Min"
Cons: "Crew were consistently overlooking us in the middle section."
Pros: "Safe, smooth, on time flight."
Cons: "Older plane. This was my return trip and the pane I took to my destination was much nicer. I feel like I should get a discount for an older plane."
Pros: "I was in a seat in coach that was appalling. (28C?), one row behind the exit row seating. I am only 5' 8" but could not cross my legs. The guy to my left was KNITTING, so was constantly jogging my arm which I carefully had kept inside the armrest on my side. I will avoid flying in a BA 747 in future. Even Business is awful on those jets. I flew in Business once, and thought the head to tail layout was the worst I have experienced. I pulled down the joint divider and thought the person in the next bed was dead, he was lying there with his arms crossed over his chest! It's time to update the 747's or retire them."
Cons: "The pathetic little 4.5" times 3.5" screen in the seatback was a joke in today's environment."
Pros: "Did reschedule our flight before we left which was helpful -Group 4 but at least we could get home."
Cons: "Paid for seats closer to front to get off for connecting flight. Waste of money as flight was delayed 90 minutes trying to fix the water system which the slow response maintenance crew never fixed. Ended up using Sani-wipes and had no coffee - seemed ok for a relatively short flight and half full plane. 90 minutes to make the decision to just go on resulting in many rescheduled flights."
Pros: "Flight in air"
Cons: "Take offs and landings"
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Cons: "They would not move me from next to the smokey 50'year old next to me. that's fine. But they told me I couldn't tell her to bathe and quit smoking. O well. I'm not gonna hold it against them for stinky old lady"
Pros: "I liked the smoothness of the flight"
Pros: "I love landing in Long Beacg."
Pros: "Never even made it to Nashville stuck in St Louis"
Cons: "Terrible experience. I will never fly American again. Still have not made it to my destination"
Pros: "Stewardess and the staff how helpful everyone was. They offered me help when I needed it the most. I appreciate it a lot."
