Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "The crew and the boarding were good"
Cons: "No food. Just unhealthy snacks"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Cons: "Boarding is as usual chaotic"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
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: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
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: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
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 crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
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: "See above description"
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 attendants were great."
Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."
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."
Pros: "Comfort with entertainment."
Cons: "No food options at all."
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 time and organized"
Cons: "food wouldn't be enough even for a two year old"
Pros: "on board crew was excellent. Seats and leg room made the trip exceptionally comfortable"
Cons: "Didn't like that I could not get my boarding ticket on line and instead had to get to the airport earlier in order to print it at the kiosk. The person at the boarding gate was not friendly but did do his job efficiently"
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: "When I arrived in Atlanta, I asked an attendant at the Atlanta airport "how do I find gate B06?. He was very indignant with me. The Atlanta airport is very large, and confusing. I think that particular man should have been more considerate and helpful."
Pros: "There was no entertainment and the flight served a small snack and drinks due to the shortness of the flight. So the marks in those two areas reflect more the shortness of the flight than Delta services. I liked the pre-flight tickets and the timeliness of all four flights."
Cons: "The plane was a little small."
Pros: "Punctuality, and the customer service."
Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
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: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "Boarding eas good and crew was very good."
Cons: "The three hour delay and the terrible food served."

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

Pros: "People was nice"
Pros: "Nice trip...no stress"
Pros: "appreciated having enough room for my knees not to hit the seat in front of me"
Cons: "I believe the flight was delayed due to weather. This resulted In my seat being given away on my connecting flight."

Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Pros: "plenty of leg room. very little turbulence. fight staff was very professional. staff was very responsive to assist me in finding my passport which I had left on the plane after I had left the plane and gotten to my connecting flight."

Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."

Cons: "Everything OK."

Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "Just getting off the plane"
Cons: "Almost everything was nightmare minus the ticket counter people*"
Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"

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: "No space in the overhead bin for my section because they were filled with bags that were much bigger than carryon size."
Pros: "On time, pleasant experience."
Cons: "A couple of slightly bumpy patches due to weather, but it was tolerable."

Cons: "Wait 4 hours for a delay flight"
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"
Cons: "Rude attendants. Belittled my daughter in public."
Cons: "Canceled my flight and regroup routed me. So instead of landing in NY I landed in jersey. Could not find a ride home when I got to jersey. American have done that to me a couple times."

Cons: "They promise hotel, didn't provide it"
Pros: "2h short flight!"
Cons: "Bloody narrow seats and aisle, no comfort at all - horrible!!!"
Pros: "The pasta dinner in economy was quite good even by airline food standards. Flight attendants very good, very positive attitudes, which always makes for a better flight experience."
Cons: "The United boarding system sucks.....unless you have $$$$."
Pros: "United flight more seat room than LH international flight. Crew much friendlier and more accommodating."
Cons: "NO ONE sent me the United check in info, so I did not have the flight number. I had to get help in Munich from Passport Control. LH flight from Koeln unfriendly LH crew."
Pros: "Efficient crew, knew their business, executed their functions well."
Cons: "Small planes are inherently less comfortable, but that just goes with the package. Nothing you can do about it."
Cons: "The fact that you have to download an app to get any kind of entertainment on United is a bit ridiculous. Plus the food offerings are poor at best."
Cons: "Getting a partner airline, cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight, missing an important occasion, missing an entire day of vacation, no willingness to find more suitable outcomes."
Pros: "On time! Flight attendants were very personal & friendly"

Cons: "It was fine"

Pros: "For the most part the staff made an attempt to help me get onto a flight. I think."
Cons: "I had to go on my trip a few days later due to a work conflict. I never changed my itinerary because I didn’t think it mattered. I bought a new one way ticket on a different airline and went to get on my return flight that I had paid for and was still receiving emails about. I got to the airport to check in for my return flight and it had been canceled because I didn’t get on the first leg. I was never notified and they couldn’t get me on the flight I wanted because it was leaving in less than hour(which is a stupid rule). And to get me on a flight the next day would cost $2500. No thanks. And before anyone tells me that it’s in the fine print that they cancel a flight if you don’t show up, save it. We all know people don’t read all that. Be a human being. So if your plans change, make sure you officially change your plans, because they may go above, but probably not beyond. Oh and it took quite a long time for them to figure out what happened. If they had realized and I didn’t spend so much time on the phone with customer service, I might’ve been outside the hour window requirement."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "We missed the flight."
Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Pros: "the seating was very spaious"
Cons: "Didn’t get bags transferred from United flight from Washington DC to the flight from Munchen to Athens. We made it to gate just in time. Bags did not. Maybe there is some way to increase layover time On this international flight. Thanks"
Pros: "Economy Plus was well worth the small up charge."
Cons: "Took a long time to remove your dishes after the meal; never offered a mid flight snack."
Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Pros: "I try to fly with Lufthansa every time I travel to Turkey. They never fail to be great! Their service is very good. Their airplanes always seem to be new or kept up very well."
Pros: "The counter clerks in the airport were not friendly. But the inflight attendants and service was great."
Cons: "The counter staff were grumpy from the minute they arrived at the service gate desk."
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."

Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."
Cons: "Flight delayed for almost 2 hours"
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Pros: "-Blue lighting and head space makes the plane feel more open. -Staff was patient considering the unfair backlash they were getting for the recent abuse of a United passenger. -Seats were well cushioned. -I arrived home to my family alive, unhurt, and safe."
Cons: "-2 hour delay (especially after I arrived 2 hours early) is unacceptable. -Overhead bins too low over our seats. We can't stand up straight at our seats making it very difficulty to get in and out of our seats. -Couldn't access entertainment on my Mac laptop. -Bathroom closets are too small. Floors in the bathroom were consistently wet because the sink is too small for people to wash their hands. -Two bathrooms for the majority of the passengers on the plane is just not enough and you know it. It's pretty uncivilized. It creates a line at the back of the plane covering at least 5 rows. Then, your aisles are too narrow. So we have to rub our bodies up against each other to let people squeeze through. -I think you guys could do better than one tiny bag of pretzel mix for a 5 hour flight. -Let's get upper management flying in economy across the country and see what they would change."
Cons: "We had to check our hand luggage and be charged EUR120.00 We should have been aware of this before we obtained the boarding pass..."

Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"
Pros: "Nice crew, on time"
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane"
Pros: "Our seats weren't changed on us, as it was going to Florida"
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Pros: "Both flights overbooked so finding space on overhead bin was impossible. They boarded us last though we bought the tickets weeks in advance. Could not get seats online, at the kiosks or at the desk. Really fruatrating! My wife and I had to sit apart for the return flight. Will not fly United again unless no choice."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "The crew and the gate was great. The pilot was amazing. This was my first flight since 1998 and I had gforce fear for take off and expecially landing but this landing was so smooth I wasn't scared."
Cons: "I didn't like that you had to pay to watch the monitor and the seating was tight."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"
Pros: "The actual flight was great. It was very easy, the movies were new and good. The food was surprisingly good (as I was coming home from Italy). The crew was great and always nice"
Cons: "The airport was extremely disorganized and I will never fly out of Rome again. Boarding and Unboarding were absolutely awful though"
Cons: "landing was little jerky and food smell made me nauseated."
Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
Cons: "Explanation on why it took so long to board was a vage"
Pros: "This was the most smoothest overall trip I have ever had flying! I loved the new plane (from JAX) and the leg room since I'm 6'5 and it was very comfortable. Everyone involved in the process were very professional as well."
Cons: "the stuffs were mean and helpless,your luggage fee was so high ,only give one checked bag for free,this is international airline and you charged the first for 100 dollars and the second one for 200dollars and you let me,a poor little girl felt lonely in the airport and found it nowhere to complain,I missed two flights in one day and the air attendant 's attitude were bad,this was the worst experience ever in my life,I won't recommend United airlines to any of my friends"
