Cons: "What a terrible flight. There was absolutely no leg room. I'm 180cm but I imagine Qatar airlines have taller passengers. I understand they are trying to squeeze as much money out of their flights as possible but it was to the point of such severe discomfort that my right knee still hurts half a week later. The reason that it hurts so much is that there was a post through the right half of the leg room under my seat, which was already super limited to begin with. DO NOT GET A WINDOW SEAT, WHATEVER YOU DO. It was a 7 hour flight and I was SO MUCH PAIN. Horrific. The flight staff was rude. I will never fly Qatar again under ANY circumstances. I would rather travel months by boat, or even walk for years on end then go through that 7 hour experience. Qatar's cheapness lost them a customer!"

Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"

I had too many issues with entertainment system.

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.

Didn’t have any food and certainly there was no entertainment on flight. There should be an choice on review of “N/A” for not applicable.

Everything went perfectly. Boarding was efficient and the plane departed on time. Smooth flight and on-time arrival at Baton Rouge. Very nice flight.

The flight attendant who served snacks/drinks on the MSP-BDL flight on Monday Jan. 31 was SUPERB. I am deaf and it is impossible to communicate with people wearing masks. She didn’t skip a beat, or look frustrated (or disdainful)… she just immediately set to typing/texting notes with me on my phone! <3

the crew and actual flight was great. i appreciate the puffy headrests with folding edges. but we have been sitting on the ground LAX for 2 hours now waiting to be let off at the gate. the water in the bathrooms has been dumped so we have to use sanitizer, and it’s hot in here, and there are no vegan snacks and barely any water. this is insane.

Great flight

I never took this flight and was never able to cancel it in Kayak’s system! I will never book through Kayak again. The flight was probably fine. Next time I will only book with the airline directly. I would caution anyone else to do the same.

Cons: "I’m a pretty big guy so this won’t apply for many other people . But the seats didn’t have much space . It was a very uncomfortable experience. I have taken many other flights and this one was one of the worst."
Pros: "Very professional crew. Nice equipment. Very pleased."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "Crew. Alcohol and water bottles. Food. Entertainment. Comfort"
Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t have a window at all. The staff didn’t offer any snacks to us. My bag was the only one that didn’t make it while I had a plenty long layover."
Cons: "Take off on time"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The plane was very quiet (except for noisy crying babies)."
Cons: "Unless you can afford the higher priced "comfort class" or first class seats, the seating is very, very cramped on Delta's 757s. It's a good thing the flight was only 5+ hours (but that's not long enough to get any decent amount of sleep on this flight scheduled as a redeye)."
Pros: "I love ice cream and chocolate"
Cons: "Healthy vegetarian meal choice"
Pros: "Crew was so friendly!"
Cons: "Food; movie choices"
Cons: "At least free water"
Cons: "Very slow plane turnover."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Old airplane. Everything was worn out and stained. Entertainment system is ancient. Economy seats are so small you can barely get in and out."
Pros: "It is only a 40 minute flight how bad can it be. No in flight entertainment or beverage service, there never is, no time. Understandable"
Cons: "As with any flight since they started squeezing seats tighter, I am over 6 foot so there is no such thing as being comfortable!"
Pros: "From the gate agent to flight attendants the flight was great"
Cons: "The sky lounge to few bathrooms"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn’t working"
Pros: "The flight was fine. I don’t do 5 stars ever since they started pushing the limits on seating. I also have a problem with the wide swing in prices for the same flight but know that is marketing."
Cons: "Seating is too crowded for anyone to be truly comfortable"
Cons: "The pilot was a Daredevil"
Cons: "Gas fume on the back seats are horrible"
Pros: "Everything was fine—no worse, but no better. Delta crew could definitely learn a thing or two from Southwest. I haven’t been on a flight with Delta where the crew seemed happy."
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Pros: "Quick, safe flight. Very good pilot."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not work at all during the 2.5 hour flight. Was very disappointed."
Cons: "One thing I didn't like is that this flight had three different numbers,. Aeromexico, Delta, and KLM. AND we didn't know which counter to go to to get our tickets ( it turned out Delta). There was not a single number to call to ask questions it get help....it turned out that JustFly was the contact, but we purchased through Kayak."
Pros: "They have few movies selection that was good"
Cons: "I like being in a big space faster. And clean good service I"
Pros: "Delta in general but , they let me stranded, i had to find a eay to fly home, they did Not help finding a next flight.. i missed my flight because of WX"
Cons: "Lack of interest towards the passenger and client, i had to do it my self"
Cons: "All went well"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "First time with AmExp Delta so no baggage fee, zone 1 boarding. seats are fine, newer aircraft, snacks were good and entertainment was good and easy to use. Staff and attendants were friendly p. All good"
Cons: "As far as flying goes today no complaints. As compared to 30 years ago I could do a book but nothing to do with Delta"
Pros: "Decent selection of in-flight entertainment. (The entertainment unit was sub-par to allow full enjoyment.)"
Cons: "Older plane had undersized, non-responsive touch displays so passenger behind felt like a woodpecker. Also, retrofitted to provide in-seat power with metal box under seat in front of you makes it very uncomfortable for window passengers who don't have space to stow bag under seat in front of them or for their feet. (Uncomfortable on a long flight.)"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Cons: "The main cable seats although newer were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and the timing of the flight was very good."
Cons: "Nothing to do with personnel but my seat was changed from when I booked. I wound up in the last row at the very back versus what I had booked. I think they changed the type of plane."
Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"

Professional

Headphones didn't work and kept of falling out, didn't give headphones until we asked, not care at all

They had horrible technical issues at check in and weren’t able to add TSA Pre to my boarding pass.

A plus

Cons: "When I got to dallas there was no one there with a wheel chair to help me get to my next flight. Asked the counter person for information and she almost could not be bothered. After asking twice I notice a golf cart type of transportation for the handicap. Well it took me 1 1\2 to get to my connecting flight. 2 other people had missed there flight. I was disappointed in American Airlines that they could not be bothered to help or even answer a couple questions."
Pros: "The crew seemed to make the best of their situation"
Cons: "The airplane was old and very cramped. Needs to be replaced with a more appropriate plane."
Pros: "Nothing, my flight was delayed so bad that if I would have had taken off I would have been stuck in DFW Airport until probably Friday as I would have had missed my flight and all the flights to PR were sold out until the 19th. Luckily my brother was so proactive that he was able to re-schedule a flight for the 19th."

Cons: "Running out of bin space by Group 3 is just wrong."
Pros: "I liked how convenient and smooth everything was, from the price of my plane ticket to the pick-up and drop-off of my rental vehicle. Also, the text notifications I received upon landing that informed me how much time I had I had between flights & where to go!"
Cons: "Honestly, there's nothing that comes to mind for me as far as improvements go."
Cons: "Our already delayed 1 am flight was cancelled a little before midnight. It was rescheduled to 8am. It was a big headache trying to get a hotel, meal vouchers. Then, there were no shuttles to the hotel available so has to wait in line again for taxi vouchers."
Cons: "I’m never ever in my life flying with American Airlines Again. I want my money back honestly. I’ve had 4 flights with AA. 2 to get to Columbia and 2 to get back to Washington. 3-4 HAD ISSUES OR WAS WAY LATE. Unexceptional"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor accommodation for the flight delays. We had to wait 4 hours in line to change our flights because we missed our flights. Not enough staff."
Cons: "Flight currently delayed 3 hours! No help booking another flight or compensation or way of getting back to NYC in time."
Pros: "Easy access and commute"
Pros: "I guess I’m happy they didn’t crash."
Cons: "Wasn’t American Airlines promoting a new plane every week? Did that fall through?"
Pros: "We were happy with the selection of movies, tv shows, and games. The food options were nice - and the amount of meals, drinks, and snacks were more than enough to get us through the long flight."
Cons: "The seats were a little small and cramped, but no more so than any other airline."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "While the incoming flight arrived late causing us to board late, the flight still landed almost 2o minutes early. The staff was very friendly as well."

Pros: "Attendants were so nice as kind"
Cons: "The set I paid for I didn't get that and service was not good at all"
Pros: "Great service. The staff was great."
Cons: "We didnt managed to get on that flight due to the delay from precious flight from philadelphia"

Cons: "The location of the upgraded seat with "leg room" was only half way open to leg room due to the exit door inconvenience"

Cons: "Small, loud plane with cramped seats. No hot beverage service."
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."

Cons: "The check in progress."
Pros: "Nothing much beside the fact it was cheap."
Cons: "Basically, when i was boarding there was a 60 min call for closing the gate, which I went up front to check in. However the front person totally ignored me, and I missed my flight coming back. After that I had to pay extra $275 (or close to that amount) to reschedule the flight. Worst experience ever."
Cons: "Boarding process was bad, the kisok did not print all the boarding pass . The Flight was delayed and the Airlines was extremely poor in communicating the same."
Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"
Pros: "The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault. But there was a large difference in comfort between this flight and the JAL flight from Tokyo. Seats were smaller, and my wife and I couldn't get seats together."
Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Pros: "I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!"
Cons: "I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice.

Cons: "Despite paying 5 months in advance, couldn't check in online or reserve seats without paying extra. AA customer service told me there were no more "complimentary " seats!! Very tight legroom in cabin."
Cons: "Mejorar el snack"
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: "left and arrived on time. helpful staff. no glitches. reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "i did not rate food and entertainment because i did not partake."
