Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Early morning flights .. the People are not aware and awake"
Cons: "Flight was changed. Missed an important event"
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "Super quick"
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Pros: "You go up. You go down. It's over before you know it."
Pros: "Super smooth takeoff and landing. Great plane, more legroom than other airlines."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "It was smooth sailing all the way"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me thinking my space was his space too"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Wifi never works. I wanted to charge my phone, but my outlets weren't working, either (my neighbor had no issues). Kinda sucked considering I was planning on working on my flight to New York. The AC was blasting humid air, so it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "My aisle seat on the first flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"
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."
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
Cons: "Was required to gate check my luggage through to baggage claim."
Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and I really enjoyed having multiple USB ports to keep my devices charged."
Pros: "Plenty of give on seat belt, just enough leg room for my 6' frame. No one was seated in the middle seat!"
Cons: "I was on the way to the airport when I was notified of the 1st delay. I am sure Delta knew there were issues already and should have let me know earlier in the day. The delays kept increasing. We were offered snacks at the gate. That is it. No free drinks on the plane, no free premium movies. Very bad customer service. More explanations were needed as to the cause of the delay."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and uneventful, comfort plus seat was comfy and sky priority lines were nice perk."
Cons: "No food / no entertainment at all. Not that I cared. Ran out of overhead compartment space fast."
Cons: "I could not print my boarding pass, get it on email, get it at the airport. A waste of their time and mine. And makes no sense. It is some new policy of Delta. Not good"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. We had a two hour delay on the ground due to thunderstorms, but the pilot kept us informed and the flight attendants answered any questions and helped with everything. The pilot even walked down the isle asking people if they had any questions."
Cons: "We booked our tickets through American Express over 3 months before the flight. Delta has a new policy that these tickets are not allowed to have certain privileges that tickets purchased on their own site have. Unbeknown to us, one of these is the ability to select your seat. On the ride from CVG to FLL we were assigned seats in the back of the plane, but at least we were next to each other. On the way back, we were not assigned a seat at all. We arrived to the airport almost 4 hours before the flight and were still not assigned a seat and were told we would have to speak to the gate agent. Even we when spoke to the gate agent, they still did not have a seat. It was not until we had already started the boarding process that they called us up and told us that we were going to be sitting 5 rows apart, both in a middle seat."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Smooth ride. Friendly flight crew"
Cons: "My tv monitor wasn't working. And they brought out cups of water with cookies like 30 minutes before we landed."

Pros: "on board crew was excellent. Seats and leg room made the trip exceptionally comfortable"

Pros: "All over it was excellent..."
Pros: "Friendly crew,boarding is fast and easy."
Cons: "Coming back was good ,but going was a mess"
Cons: "1 hour 30 min late taking off."
Cons: "Chicago to Venice flight was amazing. We were in premium economy, although the seats were larger it was hard to sleep in them, we all felt it needed some back support in order to sleep better. Crew was fantastic, would fly AA again internationally"
Pros: "When the plane finally arrived everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed at least 5x. We started getting delays around 1pm but our flight wasn’t scheduled to leave until 7pm. We were on a connecting flight so it was no chance of making the second leg of our flight. I used an AA discount to get a room in Charlotte but we didn’t get to the airport until almost 2am so I had called to cancel that hour before making it to Charlotte but was told I may still be charged for the room even tho at this point it was outta my control. It would be great if the airline took care of giving you shelter when you are stuck in limbo with no reason behind while you are stuck. American is a good airline but they seriously dropped the ball this trip."
Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "TB honestly I can’t say I liked anything about this particular flight. So nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by two hours leaving Fort Lauderdale. As a result of that delay I miss my connecting flight to Palm Springs. I was rebooked for a flight to smile Palm Springs the next day which I did not except. Then I was booked to leave Dallas to Los Angeles that flight was delayed also. To make matters worse my bags ended up in LA when they were supposed to be route it all the way to Palm Springs. I still don’t have my bags yet. Called three times and the representatives cannot reassure me of my bags on the way."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "Boarding eas good and crew was very good."

Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"
Cons: "Seats are getting more and more uncomfortable"
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "On time, efficient loading and deplaning, attendants were fine."
Cons: "The plane is old and in need of retirement or renovation. Tin foil covered a broken bulkhead in first class. Lots of squeaking, overall very dated. Better than spirit but not to American Airlines standard."

Cons: "how long i had to wait"
Cons: "Flight late, typical for American. Usual American Airlines rude staff."
Pros: "The seats new"

Pros: "Very good crew. The gate personnel also made the best of a bad situation."
Cons: "The 90 min delay and multiple postponements were a huge problem. The fact that there was such a long delay that there was another flight to the same place leaving approx 5 min later and then an hour later is pretty sad. And loading from the gate consisting of walking through cattle gates across the Tarmac was slightly irritating. In the future if you can't find enough working aircraft, make better arrangements."
Pros: "Crew was excellent on both legs. Pleasant, accommodating. Good overhead storage space. Free tv was nice although I didn't watch it."
Cons: "Cramped! I'm 5'2" and could barely get my underseat bag in and out. Very late boarding and departure. Don't like the glass of soda and they don't hand you the can but that's just me. And, of course, we boarded very late."

Cons: "Never made it to Atl all the flight was either delay or cancel last min notice .."
Pros: "One of the attendants was nice the other lady was mean."
Cons: "We had to wait over 40 min before we can get out of the airplane. It ruined my whole flight, they didn't have a gate for us to exit. Most likely I will not be flying with American Airlines again."
Cons: "The delay"

I was very disappointed with United. They should know ahead of time if the crew is not going to make the flight and cause a huge delay for everyone traveling."
Pros: "no issues with luggage, no delays, flight was good, flight attendants were good"

Cons: "No complimentary snacks, only drinks and the seats were too small for leg room."

Thanks to the affordable price I was able to visit my family for the holidays. After all the bad service I always experience from Spirit Arlines this was quite a change. I always travel withe spirit because I can afford the high prices from the other airlines and they stole my belonging s from my checked in bag on one occasion and the customer service is the worse ever.

She was walking around and I told her can you please stop walking around and help me ? At this point the to people that supposed to be helping were so lazy looking at each other . The lado had actitud me , very rude then on top of that they didn't give me my boarding ticket they forgot because they were too busy talking to each other about what I told the lady to stay to help me . I will never fly with this airline. Plus the crew that helps to load and unload the bag they just stand there , I'm with my baby in my hands and bags and they don't even ask can I help you"
Cons: "Cannot believe that the airline is so cheap that all a passenger gets is a half cup of soda. Otherwise you will have to pay for a bag of chips......what's next?"
Cons: "Disorganized, every leg of flight was delayed. Flight was delayed, because the plane was over weight with luggage, should have been foreseen."
