Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Assigning seats at check in? Why was that a thing? Also why did we have to wait for almost an hour once we landed to be given a gate for us to unload? So stupid the whole thing."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Cons: "Service and crew at JFK was horrible! Worst I have ever been around. Staff could not have cared any less"
Pros: "Amazing Crew and had a real airplane to ilm for a change!"
Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat."
Cons: "Offer in flight entertainment."
Pros: "At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "The crew was amazing this round I got good seats"
Cons: "Forgot my earphones so I had to read a book. I never asked nor did I see earphones"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Pros: "Food quality was above average (compared to Air France, for instance). On-board entertainment system offers a lot of movies or tv series, assuming it is in working order."
Cons: "A negative point for the entertainment system is the variety of movies - all US based movies. Other airlines mix in foreign movies, Delta is squarely US centric. Also, the entertainment system didn't properly work until rebooted, but flight attendants could not be contacted to get this done timely (cannot call attendants through a non-functional screen). Another concern is the noise level of the cabin, but it's mostly due to passengers."
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"
Pros: "Attendant was very good at explaining ground staff members actions to a fellow passenger"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."
Pros: "Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice"
Cons: "Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process"
Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Cons: "Delta scheduled us a connection with only 35 min of layover. We had to go from Concourse E to A and the plane was several min late.We barely made it before the gate closed 10 min before pushback."
Pros: "everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet"
Cons: "so organais tritment so good everiding lovet"
Cons: "The worst"
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Very hot ride"
Cons: "My initial flight was changed from 9 am to 5:55 am.... this is. It what I wanted or I would have purchased it. On this flight we had a 3.5 hour delay for mechanical!!!"
Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "the service in general very nice"
Pros: "On time, courteous"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Pros: "- usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ."
Cons: "- zone 1-5 boarding does not make for good logic - should board all window seat passengers first, then all middle seaters, and finally all aisle sear passengers"
Pros: "Could not use the bathroom"
Pros: "I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together."
Cons: "The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight."
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"
Pros: "Delta is a mess to check in. Check in on line, print boarding passes then stand for an hour to get bag checked, in Cleveland an. urn ind almost as long in Austin. Terrible"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."
Pros: "Pilots and crew are still great- all negative comments have to do with corporate policy."
Cons: "Not able to social distance at all. We had to board a bus to get to the plane and we sat there for 20 minutes breathing in exhaust while we were packed in like sardines rather than the bus going back and fourth with smaller groups. The plane was tiny, so again- no way to distance at all. Seats at the front were left unoccupied rather than allowing others to move to them for social distancing."
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Pros: "The young man was so funny - crew!!!"
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Left on time or a tad bit early, arrived early."
Cons: "When I checked in, it indicated a smaller plane. I thought I was going to be in a window seat, instead middle. I also wasn't able to carry on my bag, had to check, and then wait at baggage terminal."
Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Reduce time spent on tarmac."
Pros: "Nothing. Door closed in my face departure board never showed it was boarding and I ran from my other delayed flight to try and catch the Wilmington flight"
Cons: "American needs to step up their device and the airlines should be punished for their lack of service If an airline vises a non weather delay there should be immediate compensation for passengers. No different than what retailers do to their suppliers when supplier is late delivering merchandis"
Cons: "Delayed significantly. When we landed there was no gate for us to taxi to. All around a bad experience."
Cons: "I was in business class. The seat in front me magazine holder was stretched out and constantly hit me in the knee."
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Pros: "Hm...can’t really think of anything remarkably good about this flight."
Cons: "The FA making announcements was extremely rude and condescending. Other FA’s were listless and unhelpful, even discourteous to elderly passengers who needed assistance boarding. The seat was uncomfortable, no legroom, the guy ahead of me reclined before we even took off and no one made him put it up"
Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Pros: "Crew was nicw"
Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."
Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"
Pros: "Free movies, and crew were helpful once we were in the air"
Cons: "Gate agent did not start forcing check in, which caused delay in boarding. Ground crew did not stock aircraft until 20 minutes after scheduled departure time. and DFW did the usual 20 minute taxi and then 15 minute hold prior to take off."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "The crew on both flights to Cancun were very nice!! thanks"
Pros: "Speedy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats are definitely cramped."
Pros: "It was a larger plane than the first leg of my journey so I did not have to gate-check my carry on luggage."
Cons: "It was a bit of a bumpy flight during take off and landing. Flight was cold, but not freezing - tolerable."
Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Staff was excellent like always."
Cons: "No outlets on the plane. My flight was suppose to have WiFi but it didn't work."
Cons: "Bathrooms in the airport deplorable. Gates not so clean as well."
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Cons: "AA worst airline People They have working in SFO Incompetent Rude Useless"
Pros: "After missing my flight and zero empathy from AA employee who reassigned a new ticket - I was given 3 new times and an explanation that no pilots were there yet. Flight was short and painless -- but the scheduling was totally frustrating."
Cons: "The flight was so full of rude business men and the cabin crew was very rude. I didn't get a seat assignment until a few minutes before my flight. I was sandwiched between two men that took up all the leg and elbow room, because they thought they were superior. The plane was old and dirty."
Cons: "Our pilot was the choppiest pilot I have ever flown with. Don't know if this was his first time flying or what. I was so happy this was only a 30 minute flight. He/she was terrible. More schooling should be a requirement until u can fly and turn smoothly."
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."
Cons: "This flight was canceled 9 minutes before we were supposed to board. I was rescheduled twice more and ended up at a DIFFERENT destination, 8 hours after I was supposed to arrive. I will not be flying American Airlines anytime soon."
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "nothing. horrible flight."
Cons: "Aweful experience. I waited for hours in the airport because there was no plane available. thank you for wasting my time. No food served on my first class flight. All airport restaurants closed down so no food available and yet American airlines left me stranded and hungry."
Cons: "The food (only in some cases) could have been better. The jet from Chicago to Zurich had multiple mechanical issues that delayed the flight considerably."
Pros: "Efficient crew and easy boarding."
Cons: "No frills but ok."
Pros: "Free coffee."
Pros: "The check in was great. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was very small and hot. There was no space for even my legs."
Pros: "I enjoyed the speedy boarding process"
Cons: "The flight was over booked. Very crowded and when we arrived in Los Angeles we sat on the runway for over an hour"
Pros: "we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why."
Cons: "Just waiting and no information as to why. At the same time the flight to Stockholm, was delaid, aml all this information came over "our" speaker, even when they started boarding , quite confusing."
Cons: "late> 6 hours, with an entire cast of characters that could not possibly care any less than they do."
Pros: "Crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Small seats and not much leg room."
Pros: "On time!"
Pros: "The Inited Club"
Cons: "Flight never took off due to engine problems, That is understandable. What was not fun was the "every man for himself" trying to get to an agent to get alternate flights out. If you were sitting at the back the of the plane you obviously we're at the back of a long line and had no good options by the time you got to someone"
Pros: "The services very nice"
Cons: "It's very good service"
Pros: "Fastest boarding of a large aircraft I have ever experienced. They did it right by boarding from the rear of the aircraft forward. Flight attendants were courteous and very efficient. All seats were preset up with a pillow, blanket and headphones. The food was the best I have ever tasted on a scheduled flight. Much shorter flight than I expected."
Cons: "I really can not think of anything that I did not like about Aer Lingus."
Pros: "I loved that I got to the counter to check in and get my tickets and the lady behind the counter ( can't remember her name) asked me if I wanted to keep my flight or take a nonstop flight to Milwaukee. I obviously took the nonstop flight."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."
Pros: "The airport"
Cons: "Crew allowed other passengers to put more luggage in than me. I had to go hunt for space. United cheated me."
Cons: "Flight delayed, missed connection. United made no effort to help find a new flight. They stranded my at an airport for 12 and never even apologized."
Pros: "Crew was patient, plenty of room to move thru cabin! Went fast & was over before we knew it!"
Cons: "I sat between two oversized men and was uncomfortable the whole flight"
Pros: "The crew worked furiously to get everyone her drink & snack. Boarding sequence was orderly."
Cons: "Most of the time, the weak link is in check-in. For CLE-ORD, too many huge personal bags & carry-ons slipped thru the process resulting in takeoff delay as the staff checked for overhead cabin space back & forth. Inside the jet, the crew had to look for cabin space, rearrange ridiculously large bags...in order to fit my backpack. More delay. Some "personal" items were larger than most carryons."
Pros: "No hassles. perfect flight for a great vacation."
Pros: "The seats were roomy enough. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The flight within itself was not a problem. However there was a hold up because on weather which is not a problem better safe than sorry. But trying to make our connecting flight was the problem we asked over and over for information on if we were to make our connecting flight and no one seem to be able to give us a relatively fair answer on what we were to do because of the delays. Needless to say we missed our connecting flight in New Jersey they shut the door and said we could not board, that's OK if that was the rules but what to do next was the problem, no one could seemingly help us.We had to walk around to find someone to help us to only be told that we can just get the next flight but we had to go to customer service to get re-ticketed which was making us missed even another flight the lines in customer service were extremely long and they were going extremely slow so I had to jump out of line and go to a gate in which someone help me get re-ticketed to catch the next flight. We were to have someone to meet us in London in which we had no way to connect with them to tell them we were going to be 2 to 3 hours late. Once we got on a flight the plane was clean, the seats were spacious enough for economy and the staff was friendly but coming through New Jersey was not what I would want to do again but I had a flight back coming through. The horror!"
Pros: "I liked the leg space, but it stops there."
Cons: "7.99 for a movie is absurd."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "App never worked so I couldn't watch a movie on the flight."
Pros: "Everyone was kind and on time"
Cons: "Lack of snacks"
Pros: "Plane was amazing. Crew great."

Pros: "Had no problems, got to Chicago early!"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and very tight."
Pros: "The flight was good and everyone was very nice. Pilot made good time to decrease delay time during flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. But that was better than the first delay estimate of an hour and a half."
Pros: "The flight was smooth for such a small jet and the attendant was so pleasant and kind. I was very pleased with the experience over all."
Cons: "It was just a personal preference. The snack was an Asian mix and it was something I didn't care for but honestly it hardly impacted the experience at all."
Pros: "That it was direct form Cleveland to LA and it left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Chairs are so tight and hardly move back enough. Why can't they have some form of lumbar support?"
Pros: "Loved the fact that there was leg room !!"
Pros: "Plan not full... Arrived 15 min early... Great pilot and crew!!"
Cons: "Nothing negative!!"
Pros: "Flight was short, everything went well. Seating was cramped but it was a small plane."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and fast. Flight crew friendly."
Cons: "Being stuck in airspace for an hour. Caused our flight to land late, making me late for a meeting."
Pros: "Smooth ride no delay"
Cons: "Kinda warm"
Pros: "Good flight. Nice seats plenty of room"
Cons: "Nothin. Everything was good."
Pros: "Staff at the customer service counter was much more helpful and accommodating than at the gate. They booked us on the next flight leaving and booked us on another connecting flight since we were going to miss our original flight due to the United delays."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the staff at the gate was very unhelpful rescheduling our flights."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Baggage was not assigned a carrousel. After asking where it will show up, I received a verbal carrousel assignment. Almost a hour after landing, no baggage showed up. We finally found it at the unclaimed baggage."
Pros: "I had a very pleasnt experience except the seat rows were SO small and my seat didn't recline. I am only 5ft 4in and I felt uncomfortable. The woman next to me was cleary very uncomfortable. This was my first time flying United in a while and I will definitely avoid UA in the future for long flights."
Pros: "The connecting flight from Dulles to Philadelphia was CANCELED AFTER we were half way, with very little concern how any of us would get to our final destination. We had to pay out of pocket to get a ride. Had I wanted to be on the highway I would have driven myself!"
Pros: "Friendly personality of flight attendant."
Cons: "Did not "wow" me with service."
Pros: "Relatively easy to change flights due to weather delays"
Cons: "United personnel did not seem too chipper."
