Pros: Seating is better than most other airlines. In seat entertainment option, bring headphones. Accommodating crew. Beverage and snacks provided at no cost.

Pros: Awesome crew and great flight

Cons: Way exceeded my expectations!

Cons: The food on the plain or snacks were to poor and not that tasty.

Cons: Way too cramped

Pros: Friendly crew, on time departure, early arrival, and outstanding landing (I’m a pilot, so can give valid judgement).

Pros: Crew very helpful and accommodating.
Cons: The flight was delayed almost an hour due to inclement weather in the originating city. The Delta personnel explained the situation and did all they could considering the circumstances.

Cons: Too many flight delays and gate changes

Cons: Boarding process was really poor. Long line for just dropping a bag off that I already paid for.

Pros: It wasn’t delayed 3 hours like the first flight
Cons: Departing on time

Pros: great trip and crew

Cons: They did great. The weather was poor, so it felt more like a roller coaster ride home. Made it safe and sound. Would’ve been nice to get an update is speaker about change in weather and the rough ride in store when the whole ride was so turbulent.

Pros: No turbulence
Cons: Cramed plane

Cons: Seat assignment at gate and it changed 3 times to Accommodate others.

Pros: Delta was OK
Cons: Lack of attention by the fly stuard in Virgin Australia Virgin had a 45´delay

Cons: Was not allowed to check in even tho flight was delayed. Horrible!

Pros: Free movies available in-flight
Cons: temperature during flight. Freezing then hot, freezing then hot and never a comfortable temp. Food was terrible. Entrees were flavorless and smelled terrible. Time they served food made no sense at all either. Within the hour of getting on the plane, they served a meal which made no sense because most folks ate before getting on the plane. Stewardesses were not friendly (only 1 made me feel valued and welcomed)

Pros: Love delta’s Customer service!
Cons: Was wearing shorts and flip flops and the A/C was on full blast which is at the bottom on the side so my feet and legs were freezing the entire flight!

Pros: The free small meals are a nice touch. Everything was great. The flight was on time and lived up to my expectations for the best US airline.
Cons: One of the flight attendants didn’t seem super happy. Not much to complain about on this flight.

Pros: The plane was newer and the flight itself was good
Cons: Poor service onboard. Flight attendants showed little care and were curt. Ordered halal meal but were given vegetarian. It was bland and tasteless. My wife ordered drinks that never came. The armrests were stationary adding to the discomfort. Unfortunate how the international service experience is so much worse than domestic.

Pros: Quiet trip
Cons: Crowded seating

Pros: Tried the free WiFi and movies

Pros: Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections
Cons: The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue

Pros: Was in exit row & most sandwiches were no longer available. Poor planning since there were 15 more rows after me. Snacks& nuts were only other choices for 3 hr flight. Flight attendants couldn’t care less.

Pros: Crowded boarding area, but no standing around for long. Quick boarding. Entertainment not available so can't rate that. Good crew

Pros: Punctual departures. Adequate overheard space.
Cons: Food was mediocre for a 5-6 hour flight. I expected a little bit more.

Pros: Nada
Cons: Customer service over the phone is the worst. 30 minutes for them to pick up and then get transferred to a very rude representative.

Pros: Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service.
Cons: Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that.

Pros: Great to have in flight TV

Pros: See above
Cons: See above

Pros: The EXIT seat with nothing in front of me.
Cons: The non-ability to pre book seating. Assignment not available until arriving at departure gate. No entertainment.

Pros: New schedule
Cons: Missed connection die to delay by lightning. Rescefuled and put us up overnite but had comfort tickets and had to fly coach and seated separately.

Pros: The plane was clean and well staffed. The crew was nice and helpful if I needed anything. The snacks and drinks are decent and what you would expect: small bags of pretzels or cookies and your choice of Coke product or coffee. Using the mobile Delta app made boarding and finding my gate a breeze.
Cons: The seats were hard, and it was hard to fall asleep.

Cons: I was told there was no more room for luggage on the plane. I had to check my luggage in and a lady behind me went with her luggage --- in fact 3 more people slip in.

Pros: Everything was easy to follow....All of the flights were on time and very comfortable....
Cons: Nothing to report that was bad...

Pros: Delta is always running behind.

Pros: I made it home.
Cons: 1. 1.5 hour delay on a 70-degree, sunny day. 2. all of the outlets in the gate area to charge devices during the delay -- and 90% of them didn't work!!!! It's almost better not to design new seating with outlets between seats, when the outlets don't work -- neither did the ones on the walls. People were lined up for the ONE wall outlet that did work.

Pros: Crew was fantastic and I really enjoyed having multiple USB ports to keep my devices charged.

Pros: The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!

Pros: Nothing
Cons: The flight from Las Vegas was delayed for a very long time, and then diverted to Huntsville, Alabama, because of weather in Atlanta. I understand that was beyond Delta's control, except for the fact that its Atlanta hub is grossly overused. But my connecting flight in Atlanta was canceled, and its "dedicated" phone line to re-book the flight was completely unresponsive. The employees in Atlanta were, as they usually are, surly, and myself and fellow passengers had to wait on line for hours in the wee hours of the morning to be re-booked. Oh, and Delta lost my suitcase in Las Vegas, with all my clothes and a business file, and it has not been located.

Cons: Delayed.

Pros: Seats were nice
Cons: Airplane interior needs updating, old seats.

Cons: The flight was delayed when the pilot's tablet failed and he had to run to operations to get another. Seemed odd. While this was going on they decided to fuel the plane. Seemed like an excuse because they didn't have their act together on the fueling. Tablets are pretty reliable, do they really rely upon an ipad to get us where we are going?

Pros: Staff friendly & made sure that everyone on the plane was aware of someone with a peanut allergy so no peanuts were to be eaten. Ground staff worked hard to get us rebooked & on our way as our first flight was so late that we missed our connection. So glad to finally see a charging port as our long haul flight didn't have them.
Cons: Not the crews fault but this was the slowest disembarking process on a plane that I have ever seen. Hard to get comfortable in the seat. Not able to sit with husband as it was a rebooked flight & the flight was full.

Pros: Window seat
Cons: -

Pros: attendant and gate crew were very pleasant. Once the paperwork mess was corrected we did not have to wait in line to take off
Cons: Sat on the plane at the gate for close to an hour. Very warm It was quite a while before they told us that paperwork had been done wrong. More waiting. Plane was late by 30 minutes arriving

Pros: Good service
Cons: Small airplane for the route and terrible terminal

Pros: Good flight, comfortable; good food.
Cons: Entertainment system kept failing

Pros: Crew was very accommodating and friendly.

Pros: On time/ early arrival Careful about cleaning

Pros: Lisa Inzerillo is amazing, I don’t know how she kept everyone happy and safe. What an amazing employee she is, please thank her supervisor for such great training and service!
Cons: If Lisa was our flight attendant on previous flights!

Pros: On time!!!

Pros: Enough leg and seat space for coach. Timely, easy boarding, clean airplane.
Cons: Entertainment screens (though good selection for iPhone entertainment) , ability to charge phone.

Pros: Crew was good n seat could have been bigger.
Cons: Landing late to Chicago almost cost me my connection so I was stressed and could not eat due to limited time in between. The airline didn't notify us of being late to Chicago until I was on plane. We were told it was on time. Very disappointing..

Pros: My crew was very attentive

Cons: More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: No complementary snacks. Flight delayed for several hours. Customer service personnel not helpful in changing flights

Pros: Crew were very helpful
Cons: I have an injury so I paid extra for 'extra leg room" but there's a wall between economy and business class so very little legroom. My leg was hurting a lot and the flight attendants had to find me a different seat because I could not stay there for 5 hours. I wouldn't have paid extra for this seat.

Pros: Missed our connection flight. Time to close terminal to far away. Ran to gate closed as we got there.
Cons: Spending night in Chicago O'hare airport where we rerouted.

Pros: The flight was on time and deboarfing went quickly.

Pros: Plane was newer than I expected. Had tv monitors on the back of seat headrests.
Cons: The flight was delayed an hour because the flight crew was late.

Cons: Delayed. Sat on the airplane for over an hour after already being delayed 30 to board the plane.

Pros: Easy boarding
Cons: Delays on the tarmac made our flight arrive late

Pros: Room pretty good!
Cons: More walking room!!long flight!

Cons: Let me cancel the flight for credit

Pros: nothing. Plane never left.
Cons: Airlines that actually fly. We ended up renting a car and driving the 3.5 hours from Charlotte to Savannah and actually beat the flight that finally left after 11 pm and landed 1 am. We should have gotten the car much sooner and driven instead of sitting at the airport for 8 hours.

Cons: Not canceling our reservations and making our flight back home extremely difficult and hair-raising

Pros: On time with easy boarding and very helpful staff.

Pros: i arrived alive
Cons: My flight was delayed on the way to Puerto Plata on 9/9 which made me miss an entire day and I was billed for a stay at the resort. I was booked to a crappy room in MIA that I had to get changed to another hotel. THEN my departing flight from Puerto Plata back to the US was delayed 2 plus hours (as was the first flight) due to a flat tire that had to be replaced. I missed my connecting flight and had to be placed on the next flight to DCA which was the last flight. This experience was the worst. I do not have a favorable opinion of American, of which I have flown this airline for years.

Cons: Late cancellation. We still haven’t departed Dayton.

Cons: Canceled my flight

Pros: Informed in cell phone about flight delays.
Cons: Delayed flight. I was informed of the three-timed delays. Eventually, the flight met the 2nd one.

Pros: I needed special assistance due to limit of mobility and I have been refused assistance twice
Cons: On the top of that my luggage was damaged

Pros: Nothing!
Cons: Almost everything!

Cons: The flight was cancelled and our party was stuck for 2 days without a returning flight.

Pros: The fight was not over crowded.

Pros: efficiency of terminal and flight changes at Dallas-Fort-Worth excellent. valet service and complimentary checked standard carry-on bag.
Cons: Didn't know about close connections and terminal changes until printing boarding passes. Snack offerings are minimal one almost all airlines for regular fares. a tiny wafer cookie or about 5 mini-pretzels are not very impressive. I wold much prefer peanuts to pretzels--an option would be good. The gate of outgoing flight to Bloomington kept changing on phone m messaging shortly before takeoff , about 6 gate changes in 10 minutes. Confusing!

Pros: People were nice

Pros: Travel time
Cons: No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights.

Cons: Missed because of first delay

Pros: Nothing, they’re awful.
Cons: American Airlines failed to provide the service we paid for: a flight that arrived home in the morning, so that we could get to work. We had to use vacation days we did not have to spare.

Cons: Comfort of plane!

Cons: My flight back home was cancelled without any notice and so we had to spend an extra night. The flight the next day went without a hitch, so it sort of made up for it.

Cons: When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service.

Pros: entertainment
Cons: Both of my flights, to and from Europe were delayed. Missed both connections which caused us to get to our final destination hours late. Thing is, they don't even seem to care. We will never fly BA again

Pros: Left on time Nice flight attendants Arrived early
Cons: Runway time in New York

Pros: All of the flight attendants on American Airlines were very helpful and professional.
Cons: The American crew made a long flight comfortable and bearable

Pros: Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a

Pros: Left on time, arrived early, God food, pleasant flight.

Pros: Crew was good.
Cons: Boarding is terrible at DCA for commuter flights. You get on a bus packed in like sardines and the stand there for 15 minutes.

Pros: The flight was early morning so the plane was basically empty. And the flight was short due to short distance and tail winds. Crew is always friendly and helpful.
Cons: Plane seats are EXTREMELY cramped. We were early but had to sit for 15 minutes waiting for the plane in our spot to leave.

Pros: Friendly flight stewardesses!

Cons: The pretzels

Pros: The entire process was wonderful. Friendly crew, great flight

Pros: Polite crew
Cons: Flight delayed 15 min

Cons: The isle was way too narrow People were bumping into me as they went down the isle and I had to carry my cane and carry on bag . I could not understand to pilot when he spoke at all.

Cons: The staff was very rude . I was given an American Airlines plane not qantas the way home. I'll never fly American ever again.

Pros: Nothing, it was a disaster, even the staff didn't know what was going on with our flight, was delayed and because of that , Fathers Day was spent in the airport
Cons: The part of the Departung gate, I got the run around as to the gate changes about 11 times.
