Airplane was older so the business class seats were much smaller. Very hard to get comfortable. In Sacramento, my luggage was the very last piece to come off the belt. I don't understand why they don't follow the priority tags on the luggage and get those out first.
All was well on this flight.
Well I just slept when I got on board and woke up when they said we’ll get down in 20-25 mins! That was my best sleep on a flight 😅
Delta One business class seat was the tightest business class seat that I have ever had in many years of flying in business class. Absolutely horrible.
would be nice to have a separate section for families with noisy kids, but luckily flight was ending as that increased.
Easy on, easy off, smooth flight from Charleston to New York.

Cons: "Out of everyone’s control Mother Nature"
Pros: "Slept the whole way. Served wine."

Pros: "The aircraft was extremely clean. Crews were helpful and patient with passengers as they boarded and asked questions."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the flight was fast and smooth. Seating was great"
Cons: "Nothing needs to be corrected"
Cons: "Traveled Comfort Plus. Looking really crowded in the main cabin."
Pros: "The pilot greeted us all on the jet way and then spoke to us. He even came to ask if everyone was ok before we left."
Pros: "These Comfort+ seats had the most legroom of any airline (Delta, JetBlue, American etc) short of Business class that I can remember in my adult life!"
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Thermostat broke, wi fi didn’t work. Temp 60 degrees entire trip. Sucked"
Cons: "Working USB ports. On time departure."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "I wish there was a way to access the delta movies in small planes that don’t have seat back entertainment"
Pros: "Delta as always top notch!"
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "I had window seats on all flights and was boarded after those in middle/aisle seats 3 out of 4 times. Less legroom in the cheap seats. High whining pitch on speaker during announcements on last leg."
Pros: "The A/C worked, that's about all"
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment in head rests, had to use iPad not the same movies to choose from. Seats were so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "No chicken sandwich."
Pros: "Short flight! Crew nice enough!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed slightly delayed"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Good staff, plenty of room, comfortable flight, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some passengers behind me didn’t get snacks and drink"
Pros: "We were early, I had free Wifi, I love Delta!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. Friendly, professional"
Cons: "The boarding process was cumbersome. The desk people were unfriendly, unhelpful. Could not give us a seat assignment until the very end of the boarding process. Not a very friendly experience. I felt very ripped off"
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been a little more friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Once we hit the coast we skirted down the coas of Florida which provided a spectacular view. The approach and landing at Key West airport was thrilling and absolutely perfect. We’ve flown Delta many times but this was our first but not last time to Key West."
Pros: "We have been on 6 flights over the last 8 days, all with Delta and we have already started telling people how wonderful the service was. Sherry on this last flight was amazing, working so hard all by herself as our flight attendant. We were very impressed. And the pilots all came out to say goodbye and thank you. All very nice...esp for me who needed some wheelchair assistance. We will certainly fly with you again in the future."
Cons: "Smaller plane but ok for short flight"
Pros: "Having just exited the AeroMexico flight that came across as unprofessional, it was refreshing to get on a Delta flight. It was not really exceptional, but it met my expectations. The Delta agent on the telephone on the day before our flight WAS exceptional, as she tried valiantly to get us checked in to a flight that had been changed (by Aeromexico) several times. Delta was also exceptional in helping us retrieve our luggage after AeroMexico lost it."
Cons: "The noise by the engines in the back section on the Delta flight was rather unbelievable. As a physician, I think it was likely physically damaging to our hearing. If this interior aircraft noise can’t be avoided, I think earplugs should be offered to passengers in those seats."
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Even though it’s economy- it feels like the seats have gotten even smaller!"
Cons: "My flight got cancel two days in a row due to outrage power in atlanta."
Pros: "Very pleasant customer service, excellent bag delivery service."
Cons: "The gate crew did not change seats for my family & I to sit together (spouse, baby & I, grand parents) The flight was late leaving as the troops returning home were late. That part was ok, but they could have changed their seats so my family and i could sit together. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t have minded given they were all on their 4th flight if the day. It seemed that the gate crew was not budging. If my parents hadn’t had 2 seats together my daughter would have had to sit with a stranger. That’s not acceptable."
Pros: "Quick boarding/unboarding."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow me on earlier flight, when there was room, without change fee"
Pros: "Plane and flight were ok"
Cons: "The restaurant in CHS took 15 minutes to tell me they didn't have what I'd ordered thereby denying me the chance to a real meal all day. I wish they'd put real meals back on the flights"
Pros: "Tv on flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant skipped me for drinks"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Pros: "Quick and Easy"
Cons: "It would be nice to over drinks at least. I know its a short flight but coffee would have been nice."
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "They had some weather in atlanta. So they drove us out to the runway and then we sat for 45 minutes with the engines off waiting to leave. I guess it is nice that they want to keep you safe. After missing our connector - they did put us up in a hotel overnignt. However we still had to pay extra for taxi back, parking an extra day at the airport, and extra meals. Oh - and the extra trip to detroit..."
Cons: "So after waiting 45 minutes on the tarmac - we left and headed to Atlanta. There we landed and waited because they had no gate for us. Then we finally got off the pane and ran to our connector which left without us. We were told they don't hold the plane for less than ten people. So the four of us don't matter. We sat and sat waiting...and then lost another day due to travel."
Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Last row of a cramped 18 row plane with seats that did not recline!"
I liked the wheelchair assist allowing me to board first.
Great flight overall. We boarded quickly and the flight attendants were happy and efficient. We sat on an exit row so plenty of room.
I am a member of their award winning AAdvantage program and this has been one AdisAdvantage experience with multiple hurdles. My intial flight was supposed to be a nonstop. At around 10:30pm the night before the flight was canceled and the rebooked flight the same day was a one stop transit CHS. The gate agent required me to check in my carryon and said it'd go to my destination by 4pm. Due to inclined weather, AA landed in CLT instead of CHS. The gate agent advised me to get off, and in 5 minutes, run from terminal A to C to catch the next flight to my destination at 2:40pm. However the gate was closed despite all efforts. What troubled me was I would have made it to the gate earlier if the previous agent didn't argue with his colleagues on how to write a report note for 20 minutes before informing me of my choices. AA missed two next flights for me (2:40pm and 4pm) and the only option is to wait until 6pm. After 30 minutes speaking to AA customer support at the airport, I was given a food voucher of $12, which was worthless and humiliating for airport foods. Finally I made it to my destination at 8:30pm but my checkin baggage did not arrived. All my medications are in there! I lost one whole day of the trip that should have started at 9am but ended up arriving at 9pm without even a toothbrush or any clothes. AA baggage support was the most useless and no real person answers the phone. AA had a baggage file number for me but there was no update at all. I ended up going back to the airport baggage claim area THE NEXT DAY to see my bag among a bunch of lost bags on the floor.
seat in front of me was angled back more then other seats.. was very uncomfortable, tight fit .
Crew was great plane was small and uncomfortable
Pros: "The seat was comfortable for a change must be a different plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and very personable!"
Cons: "Something better to eat"
Pros: "Crew excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was crowded!"
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with the other flight"
Cons: "Just doesn’t compare to the new 787’s"
Cons: "Original flight we booked would have taken us overnight. But it was canceled so we had to stay overnight in the airport"
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: "I’m alive"
Cons: "An hour late. 3 gate changes. Missed connection in Phoenix. Typical AA."
Pros: "Boarding very well done."
Cons: "One of the crew was unhappy."
Pros: "Yes! The crew was amazing! The seat was perfect!"
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about my flight to Richmond."
Cons: "Nothing really needed to be better this time around"
Cons: "AA provided me NO assistance when my flight was cancelled and I had to make arrangements on my own, which caused me to incur in extra expending."
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work."
Cons: "The seating was not good middle seat I like windows"
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."
Pros: "Kayak was helpful with all the reminder and alerts. The staff was extremely friendly."
Cons: "2 published delays and then another 30 minues waiting to push away from gate. Almost 2 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The crew was pleasant. No water served due to turbulence"
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."

Cons: "Small delay of 25 minutes"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Fast flight."
Cons: "Hours of sitting without free Wifi and flight attendants that could care less. Also the small print in all of AA’s ticket deals and what they really don’t offer."
Pros: "Awesome service"
Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"
Pros: "Overall solid flight"
Pros: "Boarding was fast, seats were comfortable, flight was on time, crew very professional."
Cons: "The boarding area was dirty, and the gate changed twice, once when I was already in a different terminal, so having me to ride the shuttle twice. In general I hate to have to pay extras for baggage, seats and pedale food. This is not AA specific, but if AA would lead change I believe it would soar in 1st place for customer satisfaction."
Cons: "The service was mediocre and the food was horrible! It made me sick!"
Pros: "New equipment. Film choices, crew, complementary beverages"
Pros: "Entertainment selection."
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."
Cons: "the plane started 1 hour late and I missed my plane to warsaw"
Cons: "No wheelchair provided which was requested for. Touch screen not resetted"
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: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, seat was not clean."
Pros: "Nice trip...no stress"
Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"

Cons: "Setting is crowed especially when person in front reclins entertainment does not support many android and no kindle device"
Pros: "The crew were friendly. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "After waiting for the plane to receive some kind of maintenance for hours on end and missing our connecting flight, they finally sent us to another city to catch a different plane to our final destination."
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."
Cons: "Mechanical issues caused delay, unavoidable. Crew was friendly and kept us updated."
Pros: "The Chicago airport is a nice airport to stay in when you're waiting for a new plane! Also the flight attendants did a very good job!!"
Cons: "The crew did a very good job of getting us on and off the plane and getting us on a new plane even though it was annoying and inconvenient!"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "All we got for food was a little bag of pretzels. Maybe not cheap out on that"
Pros: "Everything was really smooth sailing."
Cons: "Everything was great! The Charleston airport is small yet very nice inside"
Pros: "Plane broke. Gate change. Sat on the tarmac for a half hour to take off."
Pros: "The crew, was friendly and attentive to any and all needs."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Newark at 4:30. But it did not leave Charleston until 6:15 PM! This is not the 1st time this has happened with United. It seems that they are always some kind if “weather” delay with United flights arriving and departing Newark. Also, they are constantly cancelling flights to/from there. I would suggest looking at a different airline, perhaps one that cares more about the passengers iteneraries than the number of passengers."
Cons: "95% of my united flights are delayed. Today, they overbooked and asked for a volunteer. I did so and was offered a $1,500 compensation. Instead of 8:00, I would arrive at 11:00. I was very excited and patiently waited for the plane to board, so I coulD receive my new flight info. The flight is inevitably delayed, as it always is with this airline: I would have ended up missing my connection, so it seemed to work out well. However, they’re about to close the doors when the agent says “it’s not overbooked anymore” she gave me the option to so either get on that flight and wing it on my layover to find another flight, or go to Newark. But I needed to make a decision at that moment. The agent revoked the $1,500 because it was no longer overbooked and her demeanor immediately changed from The kind, accommodating agent she was when she needed me to give up my seat. She became short and rude. I got the last available seat because I was the last to board and was forced to check my bag because there was no more room. All because I was willing to change my travel plans. I get to my layover, and the earliest flight I could get would land at midnight with an additional layover. Oh! And the first class seat I was supposed to have on my second leg was not available. All of this was while I was seriously ill— throwing up, just wanting to be home. Honestly, I’ve never liked United. I constantly get over it, because it’s often the less expensive option. At this point, I am so sick of how they treat their customers, and their inability to depart on time. Last time I let them put me through this again."
Pros: "Prompt boarding, no delays,smooth flight. Overall a very good experience."
Pros: "Food was great and unexpected"
Pros: "There was nothing to like"
Cons: "The worst company ever!!!!!"
Cons: "Plane sucks. Too small and poor seats. Better snack selection."
Pros: "Great crew & very accommodating"
Pros: "Most of it"
Cons: "Purchase of snack! I only received a cracker and a soda!! Also, the movies were not free!! Really!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They comped everyone the direct tv access as an apology for the delay, but I'd rather be comped wifi."
Cons: "It ended up being a 5 hour delay. I would have been fine with it if they had told us up front that it was 5 hours, but instead it's 2 hours, then after an hour passes they tack on another hour and so on. It would be nice just to know it'll be a long wait, so we can leave and come back or reschedule our flight for the next day."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants brought a few people drinks and then disappeared leaving the rest of us thirsty"
Cons: "Third time a flight has been delayed and then cancelled. United has horrible customer service, rude and inexperienced. It will be a very very last resort before I ever book with them. Three strikes you're out"
Pros: "Timely take-off. Info from flight deck good in the beginning."
Cons: "However reporting of weather delay and the info about fuel stock on the aircraft could have been beter managed."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The whole flight seemed like a sales pitch. Pay to upgrade to our empty seats with a little more legroom. Pay to watch TV cross country (Delta, American, and all others are included). They did have more sales pitches on the screen for 6 hours though. Pay for snacks. Not even peanuts or pretzels anymore. They do give you a disgusting wafer. Flew back on Delta and didn't see any of this. Between this and their recent beating up of customers, no more United for me."
Cons: "Overall United airport staff were not helpful and not very apologetic for delays and missed connections"
Pros: "I arrived and my flight was delayed until after 9:30pm and my connecting flight left at 10."
Cons: "Unreliable. Could not get me to my destination in a timely manner. Trip cancelled."
Pros: "Flight missed and now sitting here in an empty airport waiting for my next day flight at 650PM. Btw all local hotels are booked. Thank you United for stranding an active duty Soldier!"
Cons: "Flight missed and now sitting here in an empty airport waiting for my next day flight at 650PM. Btw all local hotels are booked. Thank you United for stranding an active duty Soldier!"
Pros: "The comfort the pleasantness of the staff the on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "More room. The plane was not full but we still were shoved in middle seat with no room for normal shoulders without over lapping. The seating areas are not comfortable. They put three seats where there is only room for two."
Pros: "The flight attendant was GREAT!!!!"
Cons: "Again with the pretzels"
Cons: "I was rerouted, very efficiently, to another airline by United due to late planes. I had paid my baggage fee on united and then had to pay it on the other airline. I have been on the phone 3 times for half an hour each time to get my refund from United. I STILL do not have it!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Not much gave united a chance may not travel again"
Cons: "Very hot flight attendants were not friendly checking in o"
Pros: "Easy boarding and on time . Pleasant staff. 0verall good flight"
Pros: "Overall the flights were trouble free. The seats on the CRJ145 to Chicago were pretty confortable. United is the only airline that gives passengers a complete can of coke instead of just a cup. The snack was just so so."
Cons: "The seats on the plane from Chicago to Tucson were not comfortable. I could feel the hard bottom."
Cons: "Had to wait 5 hours because my flight was canceled with mechanical issues to the plane."
Pros: "There was more room on this flight. Comfortable. Staff was nice."
Cons: "Gate change/delay"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delayed several hours waiting on a part to fix the engine. The aircraft was too warm. I sweated the whole flight."
Pros: "Length of flight."
Cons: "We were kept in the airport for hours on end without being informed our flight was cancelled. Something was wrong with the plane and then by the time it was fixed the crew had times out. We were given no information, the delays just kept increasing and increasing. We had to fly out the following morning which made things very inconvenient for getting rides from the airport and getting to work on time."
Cons: "Barely enough room to hoist your baggage in the overhead bins"
Cons: "Plane was small with very loud engine"
Cons: "Flight was canceled completely. No email was send about the cancelation or explanation. Agents weren't helpful with readjusting flights"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and polite."
Cons: "No leg room, only ranch snack mix."
Pros: "That it got me from point a to b"
Cons: "Plane was very old and rickity. Crew was short. Boarded plane late and of understaffing. Overall pretty terrible."
Pros: "The flight from Charleston was uneventful"
Cons: "There was no problems flying from Charleston to Dulles"
Pros: "Being able to leave on my desired day."
Cons: "This would have been my first time on this airline ans I was excited going into it with ano open mind. However as I was getting ready to head to the airport, my flight was canceled and they rebooked for another flight that would leave the next day with a 3 to 4 hour layover. I was frustrated with the flight selected and therected seemed to be no effort into suiting me with an equivalent flight in which I purchased, which was a direct flight. I spoke to a reap that found a flight on another airline, but it still was not a direct flight in which I requested. For this being my first impression I was not impressed!"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No wifi on small plane"
Pros: "I was satisfied with the friendliness of the flight crew. The comfort of the flight was satisfactory also."
Cons: "I was unhappy with the handing of my luggage when unloaded plane side in Houston. The unwillingness of the representatives of United to help was extremely dissapointing. My flight being delayed I guess was just the icing on the cake."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, and explained situation clearly."
Cons: "After booking my flight two months prior and checking in 12 hours earlier, I was not allowed to board the plane because United had overbooked. Thus forcing me to fly to Charlotte then Newark at a 5 hour delay. There was also no drink for those in my row during a two hour flight from Charlotte to Newark."
