Pros: "Though departure was delayed, arrived at destination on time!"
Cons: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "It was the most mediocre flight I've taken in a long time. And I still had to pay $100 for an exit row instead of a regular seat. Really? $100 for no recline, no underseat storage, and nothing more than cliff bars and goldfish crackers? Delta.... You can do way better"
Cons: "We were delayed by 2 hours because of storms in Atlanta. The crew was awesome with updates but it made for a long day."
Pros: "Due to COVID 19 we got a 737-800 on a route that usually boasts nothing better than a 717 so everything about this flight was superior to normal runs."
Cons: "I wish DL could find a way to better manage food and drinks during the COVID 19 restrictive era."
Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Purchased food on board. Dry and unappealing."

Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."

Cons: "I know things happen but it didn’t make a pleasant travel experience sitting on the plane for almost 2 hours and the fear of missing my connection to NO"
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."
Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."
Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."
Cons: "It’s was the best flight in my life"

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Tight space"
Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."
Pros: "Being able to watch a movie on the plane"
Cons: "Packed..."
Cons: "Smooth"

Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"
Cons: "A flight of four hours should have decent food. Too short connection times and inconsistent restaurants in the airports often leave me very hungry. Give us real healthy food onboard."
Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."
Pros: "The plan had Wi-Fi and free movies. Plugs for the phones"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Cons: "2 of my 4 bags, which I checked in, were broken during my travel."
Cons: "Had flight delay affecting my connecting flight."
Pros: "Well I arrived at the gate 8 minutes before departure due to a late flight from San Antonio. And no one was there. I watched the plane leave 5 minutes late. The gate attendants were super rude and lazy when they came back up the ramp. I think the walk really took it out of them. There were 10 people who had run from delayed flights just standing there thinking wtf."
Cons: "AA in Phoenix is always a nightmare. They seem to hire lazy people with no idea of customer service"
Pros: "We eventually left."
Cons: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "Ramps up to the plane are a challenge for someone with movement problems. They had a mechanical issue that delayed departure for almost an hour for lack of a single screw."
Pros: "Pretty efficient for a completely full flight."
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"
Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."
Cons: "Thank you"
Cons: "A toilet had no water. The internet was not working for the whole flight"
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Pros: "not atg all"
Cons: "I paid for a preferred seat and the passenger seated next to me was so large that he could not buckle his seatbelt and totally squished me into the window. I called the stewarddess over and I was haphazardly moved to an aisle seat next to a smaller passenger. I was then bumped into repeatedly by"
Cons: "In a period of 20 minutes in the hour before boarding there were three gate changes. The last one was a change of terminal and gate. You have been doing this for years and you should know how to do this already."
Cons: "Constant delays, wrongful promises of when/how long delays would take"
Cons: "I paid $70 for a seat upgrade, and it showed on my boarding pass as “EXIT” (exit aisle) with 6 inches of extra legroom when I purchased the upgrade in London. By the time I arrived in Dallas, the “EXIT” indicator on my boarding pass disappeared. When I boarded the plane there was no extra legroom and row 16 was not an exit row: rows 14 and 15 were. I endured a less comfortable trip, and now have to go through the pain and effort to get a refund. Good luck to me..."
Pros: "Crew was polite, Captain was helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Great flight experience overall!"
Cons: "Confusing in LAX as to where to go for the flight"
Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."
Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped for a tall person"
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Customer service was friendly"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
Pros: "The customer service!"
Cons: "Eventhough, I have accumulated over 100000 points. I don't get any seat upgrades or gold status!"
Cons: "Late taking off. Almost missed my connection"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was great."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."
Pros: "The flight boarded really quickly with absolutely excellent service from the flight crew. The pilots and crew were so considerate, and helpful. They totally took care of all of us. From the time I got on to the flight to the time I got off the crew were there to make sure I was taken care of."
Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair! The customs checking process was a joke! We barely made to our flight running thru that entire airport pushing my mother in a wheelchair. I can't tell you how horrible the experience was for both of us!"
Cons: "More flight delays..."
Pros: "I had a family member enter the hospital 5 hours before take off. I got a full refund, even though I didn't have trip insurance."
Pros: "The plane was brand new and the crew were very nice. Entertainment system was well-done with good selection of movies. Even unedited movies!! Great."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for a half hour before it was marked as "delayed" and then it was delayed another half hour. If I had known it was going to be an hour late I would've been able to eat a proper dinner. They seemed to be out of every normal drink on the drink cart."
Pros: "Staff was kind."
Pros: "The plane was a newer Boeing 738 plane and has AC power outlet at every seat. However I was not able to use their in-flight movie channel on my tablet since there were too many users."
Cons: "I am an Executive Platinum member and normally should get a meal even in economy. It was not offered on this flight. The crew didn't have a friendly attitude."
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The Crew were outstanding and the flights were quiet and smooth. Very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "THe reading light was broken"
Pros: "We boarded on time, we sat in the exit aisle, so we have a little extra room. They offered free movies, which my husband took advantage of. Pleasant flight"
Pros: "I had lots of space to my self"
Cons: "airbus A320 doesn't have power ports at seats...."
Pros: "Entertainment was not available for the latest Safari browser 10."
Pros: "Smooth, quick flight!"
Pros: "Again getting moved up to first class"
Cons: "I would have liked to know before I was already seated in Coach."
Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "New plane"
Pros: "I missed my previous flight, and even before that my day was going pretty bad. I was quickly routed to the desk to get a replacement ticket, and even though the flight was oversold, they had me wait around until the plane was ready to take off. A couple minutes after they shut the door of the boarding bridge, I was called and told to follow one of them. It turns out a couple of people were headed to the right city in the wrong country."
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed and ultimately cancelled. There weren't a lot of connecting flights until much later the next day, and the customer service was fair at best."
