Flight was delayed multiple times
Delayed boarding otherwise all was great. Had the Comfort+ seating which was decent. A bit more room than what is normal these days. Free Wifi for the whole trip was a bonus also
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
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Gate agents were a little snippy."
Cons: "For some reason, we were asked several times for Passports. This didn’t make any sense since we are US citizens with drivers license. They even had TSA talk to us. This has to be fixed. Otherwise, Delta experience was great."
Cons: "Seat power charger didn’t work"
Pros: "Fast/ efficient"
Cons: "The little plane is always brutal. I'm not a small guy and sat next to an offensive lineman. It was tight for sure!"
Cons: "It was great fir a short flight. And they got me there early."
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pros: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Cons: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Cons: "5 hours late!!!!!! Delta sucks"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."
Cons: "Stop charging for checked bags"
Pros: "We actually did not fly this route. We bought a car and drove home!"
Pros: "Crew was the best I have had in 2019 on Delta, the only good crew."
Cons: "Everything at the Atlanta Airport. From the airport and staff itself to those working for Delta Airlines. It has been so bad, that I am thinking of flying with American Airlines again and avoiding the Atlanta Airport all together. Absolutely the worst airport in the country, Delta not much better"
Pros: "Crew was good. Food was good."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for an hour. Legroom in economy was tight."
Pros: "The crew was totally understanding with the huge delay."
Cons: "The communication from Delta on the delay."
Pros: "First I don’t comment on these normally, but during our flight we had a medical emergency and the crew handled it with perfection. They kept a very calm atmosphere and handled passenger with great care and professionalism. I could not be more impressed."
Pros: "Crew were attentive and the food service schedule was helpful in making the time pass. wonderfully generous pours on the complimentary wine service"
Cons: "Food was really just gooey goo."
Pros: "The crew really took care of us. You could tell they care."
Cons: "I wish the headphone jacks allowed standard headphones. I brought a nice set and didn't have an adapter. I used the ones they included which were ok, but not great."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Seats could be better. But the delays in deicing the plane could have been handled better."
Pros: "Very friendly crew with a clean plane!"
Cons: "I got bumped from this flight a couple of hours before departing."
Pros: "-Timeliness -Friendly staff especially considering the ill reputation of Delta flight attendants in domestic flights within the USA."
Cons: "-Boarding by zone wasn't carried out. Everybody, other than first/business class, stood in one long line for over an hour. -Quality of food should be improved. Please stop serving starchy wraps. And let the hot tea be hot, not lukewarm. - Please no popsicles for adult passengers. Please serve ice cream in cups."
Pros: "Great crew and plane arrived on time."
Cons: "No entertainment and no place to charge devices."
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Pros: "Great service by gate operators."
Cons: "TSA process"
Pros: "Inflight Service is great"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "I ordered food for my son and they had no record so he had some snacks only during a 10 hour flight. The cabin temperature was freezing, everyone was shivering but despite requests it stayed cold."
Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
Pros: "Super nice flight attendant. Really made all of us (business travelers, retired military folks, family with little kids heading to a wedding) feel welcomed and happy. Great experience."
Pros: "Good i like i could watch movies from my phone"
Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "20 minutes ahead of schedule"
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Quick flight!"
Cons: "Didn't realize the last seat on the plane doesn't mean back."
Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "This flight was cramped. Not enough stretching room. Hard seats"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "we got there"
Cons: "not much to like. a 55 minute delay from a small airport to the hub is going to cause you to miss your connection. Sure enough I missed my flight home and got to spend 41/2 hours in Detroit. They said it was a weather delay. But folks getting off the plane said it was a crew problem."
Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"
Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."
Cons: "I didn't like: While transition from Mumbai to Hyderabad, i was told to collect the luggage in Mumbai and check-in again which made so worried and confused."
Pros: "Great flight attendant!"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "the majority of delta flights i've taken over the past few years have had huge issues - either long delays or cancellations. i won't be flying Delta again"
Cons: "I was separately seated from my husband and had to seat in the middle because my ticket status was economy"
Pros: "singing crew member, especially nice for Mother's Day"
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "Free movies/TV is a great amenity. Overhead bins were full by the time I boarded, so I gate-checked my bag. The staff was helpful and accommodating, which made that process quick and easy."
Cons: "Boarding is chaos. There's got to be a more efficient way than zones."
Cons: "they charge 300$ extra for a 14 year old child and dont give any service for the payment, they say it is to bring the child on and off the plane even though he can travel alone and has done it many times with other air lines. drive the parents uo the wall, make them wait endless time, and then they comlaine that thay have no time tofor the child and leave him standing with out even letting him to seat with the other air lines a child of 12 can travel alone."
took two planes and two boarding processes to get to ABQ. should not have customers board a plane that needs repairs and have then sit on plane while repairs are made and then tell them to get off plane. we were sent to a 2nd gate to board a 2nd plane .. this took almost 4 hours . not a good experience.
Hour delay taking off due to missing crew member
So smooth and comfortable. Crew was professional and courteous.. We landed way ahead of schedule! A great quick flight! Thank you American Airlines!!
Pros: "The crew was great and separation of passengers unless traveling together was great as well!"
Cons: "My luggage was completely soaked, ruining important paperwork, clothing and even my parking lot ticket for me to exit the parking garage. Apparently they didn’t even try to cover the passengers luggage."
Cons: "The flight was not socially distanced"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour. Being that it doesn't arrive in ABQ until almost midnight, a 52 minute delay means I don't get home until almost 2 in the morning. Seats also seem to be kind of narrow on the 737-800. I'm not a big guy, but I am still bumping shoulders through out the flight."
Pros: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!"
Cons: "Ability to download premade events apple calendar and apple wallet tickets was seemingly impossible. Send me one email with each of those items as it’s one of the number one thing customers care about"
Pros: "Good flight. 3 hour duration at night. I flew in first class, as the extension of my business class flight from Paris."
Cons: "Had to use a wheelchair service in terminals. Me and another victim were wheeled to 40 feet from the check in desk and the guy took off without further instruction. I hobbled to the counter to make sure we were on the pre-board list. Defeats the purpose, but whatever....."
Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time"
Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."
Cons: "Delays. Unexplained."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Isles for walking are way too small! I mean you can’t walk normally. I am 5’11” 195 lbs. not big but I have to move sideways down the isle. This is a very dangerous situation in a emergency situation. Something needs to be done. The seat space between the seats is another story"
Cons: "21/2 delay....no explanariin. But flight attendants did not show up until 9:15 and yet plane had been on the ground since 8:30. Seems poor planning on airline’s part"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."
Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."
Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"
Pros: "On time boarding. However we had about an hour departure delay due to de-ice of the plane due to ice storm which just started but I am not complaining about that. I would rather the plane was completely safe for departure."
Cons: "We have to gate check roller bags due to size of plane. Also, little or no knee room. My knees were pressed into the seat back in front of me."
Pros: "777 plane was awesome in first class."
Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"
Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"
Cons: "So. Many. Screaming. Children."
Pros: "Easy and smooth flight."
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "Excluding the below situations, everything else exceeded expectations, just outstanding."
Cons: "Food selection for someone who's allergic to milk, such as myself, was the poorest I've ever encountered. Also, somehow the TSA Pre-Check for both my spouse and I was "dropped." So we had to wait to clear security and still didn't have tickets until the last minute because we couldn't check-in online because we needed our passports. Therefore, we almost missed our flight to Dallas. My spouse and I are still upset about the situation and lack of customer service."
Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."
Pros: "Great crew and on time"
Cons: "Arrival G14; Departure H18 with only 35 minute layover, a really loooong walk at speed. Need tunnel from G to H or moving walkways or a "train.""
Pros: "It was a short trip, LA to Albuquerque. Flight attendants were nice, plane was clean, and I was comfortable enough to sleep all 2 hours"
Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."
Cons: "Cramped seating, uncomfortable cabin temperature, very hard/jolting landing"
Cons: "An extremely rude woman told me there was no space to place my bag in the overhead compartment and forced me to step aside and check my backpack. I didn't have a purse or any other item, just a backpack. I told them I had medication and they told me to just put it in my pockets. So I stashed my medicine in my pockets and had no room for my personal items or valuables. I had a hiking backpack with a water bottle in the side, and since they forced me to check the bag, my water bottle flew out of the pocket while it was being loaded onto the plane. Fortunately they at least tracked me down and brought my stainless steel water bottle to my seat. However, it wouldn't fit in the pocket in front of me and I had no other bag to store it in so I had to hold it and a few other belongings in my lap for the entire flight. I also had some other fragile items in my backpack that may or may not be okay. Also, when I boarded the plane, there was still space...there was no need to be so rude and force me to check a bag being used not only as my suitcase but as my purse as well. I'm so displeased with American, their staff, and their overall disorganization. How ridiculous."
Cons: "Flight path at the end had to many turns kinda made me sick"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero entertainment. Flight sat on tarmac as they tried to fix some technical issues after taxiing"
Cons: "Prices are high and changes are frequent on rates"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Upgrade from cloth seats was nice."
Cons: "The food wasn't terribly tasty or filling. Also, it was freezing - with a blanket, sweater and scarf on."
Pros: "There was nothing that I liked."
Cons: "One half hour before boarding we learned there was a delay. Obviously, American Airlines knew way before this time of the delay. At 6:00 p.m we were told they were bringing another plane from the hanger. The plane showed up around 9:00 p.m ... must be a long trip from the hanger. Then we were told they are waiting on a rear flight crew from another flight. After getting the rear flight crew, we were told that the front flight crew "timed out" and they had to look for other pilots. Needles to say after arriving at West Palm Beach at 1:00 in the morning...about four hours late the passengers were all devastated. American could have orchestrated this so much better"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Cons: "No personal entertainment systems. I ordered a low lactose meal and got yogurt which is high in lactose!"
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Pros: "There were a lot of entertainment options, the seats were comfortable, staff was attentive, and two meals were included."
Cons: "Getting around London Heathrow was a pain and took a long time."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, too narrow, and little leg room."
My check in luggage was supposed to be cleared and OK all the way to the final destination in Europe, but it was delayed by (as of now) one day.
very small overhead bins. neither of my undersized pieces fit. both had to go under my seat. luckily, the passenger next to me still had room for their bag too.
Cons: "Missed connection flight late Fiasco!!!"
Pros: "On time clean comfortable flight"
Pros: "The flight attendant was amazing. She was friendly, courteous and went out of her way to make my flight very enjoyable."
Pros: "Ease of finding gate"
Cons: "There were several cases of couple who purchased tickets together were separated on the plane & no one knew why they were arranged that way. No solution offered at counter."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Plane was over 2 hours late. It was tiny. Super claustrophobic."
Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."
Pros: "Things were new"
Cons: "Seats were smaller, legroom was less, seatbacks when fully upright push your heard forward so when I fell asleep, my head kept falling, NO FREE ENTERTAINMENT. They tell you to download the app mid-flight to get free entertainment, but you need to pay for wifi to access the app store."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Space a little cramped.for spmepne 6'3""
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "The persons sitting next to me"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault. Bumpy ride."
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "delayed 2.5 hrs, stood in jetway for 15 mins while crew fixed seatbelt issue. snack was poor; limited options for soda, small pour & only pretzels as snack!"
Cons: "Had a one hour delay on thtarmac waiting for de-icing...weather related."
Pros: "Good progress info in-flight from cockpit"
Cons: "TSA lines at SFO Terminal 3 are a zoo, precheck included. United gates had no facilities available to plug in a charger. C'mon folks, it's 2017, one wall outlet with two kids sprawled on the carpet next to it isn't enough. The 'grab a snack' box had one crumpled cellophane package of peanut butter crackers. Yum."
Cons: "I appreciate the in-flight entertainment idea, but the execution leaves something to be desired."
Cons: "Personal entertainment did not work. Most first and business class airlines have a screen to see the movies."
Cons: "Thirty minute delay with pushback in San Francisco"
Cons: "some folks didn't use ear phones watching shows so i had to hear annoying entail mentioned selections. I had ear plugs fortunately :) didn't find anything I'd watch in entertainment. enjoy learning/science/documentaries"
Pros: "The attendants tried to be cheerful in a difficult situation."
Cons: "Once we were boarded we waited for a long time in a crowded stifling hot plane. Requests to the crew were met with helplessness on their part!"
Pros: "There were no delays"
Cons: "Even for a smaller person like myself, it was quite cramped--moreso than what I've noted in the past"
Pros: "Really fast and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The flight was really bumpy which I realize isn't anyone's fault but I couldn't wait till we landed...also they announced that as soon as we were at a certain altitude they would begin beverage service....which I was really looking forward too , and then ten minutes later they announced that they were cancelling beverage service."
Pros: "We arrived on time and I had no problems ."
Cons: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned."
Cons: "nothing to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "It was on time and I had no problems whatsoever."
Cons: "I had 2 minutes left to board, and they wouldn't let me. Instead they closed the door. But United was get me a ticket home. Unlike LH..."
Pros: "The crew was polite and courteous. Aircraft was clean. The flight even landed way ahead of schedule. Overall a great return flight"
Cons: "The food seemed overpriced for what it was. I passed as it didn't look very appealing."
Pros: "I traveled on a weekend during which I experienced numerous flight cancellations and was stuck for a couple of days on two separate nights. I flew United and American that weekend. United Airlines staff was the most empathic and apologetic to.me, even though they had no control over the weather. I didn't expect any accommodations for all of the changes...just a little understanding...and that's what they gave to me. I did let AA know how disappointed I was in them just for their lack of compassion. Thanks"
Pros: "Only good thing was the flight was fast and on flight staff friendly."
Cons: "Flight to Denver was supposed to leave from Albuquerque at 9:55. Screen said flight was on time. No rep at desk and screen changes to Houston and only way we found out our flight was delayed because the plane was diverted to Durango is because another passenger called United. Finally at a quarter till 11am the screen at the gate changed back to Denver but still said 9:55am departure flight on time but united's website stated flight delayed till 11:55am. Upon return to Albuquerque from Denver bag was not on my flight so I had to hang out in Albuquerque although, I live an hour away because I have prescription meds in my checked bag I need to take 4 times daily. Would not fly United again"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled 3 times before 9am..... me like me any passengers arrived really really early to FWA & they cancelled flight because of mechanical issues. Which is fine but the airline had no backup plan.... meanwhile planes just leaving out of FWA & all we kept getting was updates on a cancelled fligyt AGAIN.... now im in a cab traveling 2 1/2 hours to IND to hopefully get on a flight to EWR.... but honestly I am lacking confidence it will happen"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Pros: "Again, great staff at the gate and crew aboard. Short flight but very comfortable."
Cons: "It was freezing!"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and kept us up to date."
Cons: "I did not like that both planes they put us on were broken. We were very delayed"
Cons: "Small seat One bathrokm"
Pros: "On time both ways"
Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Seats need screens & outlet for charging."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight and the departure and arrival times were just perfect. I really liked the cookies they had. If I had wanted to use it, there was WiFi available."
Cons: "We took off late due to mechanical problems and I think the practice of allowing first class passengers to board first and then get in the way of other people trying to board later is inefficient."
Pros: "The flight was safe, the crew courteous. Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."
Cons: "Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."
Pros: "Okay crew."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seating. Departure time and gate changes."
Cons: "When traveling with a service animal, it's kind of a given that I would be seated where there would be room for my dog. My dog is 70 pounds. There was no room for him to sit in front of me. The flight attendant just says "he can't sit in the isle". I asked her where would you like him to go? She says "not in the isle". A 2nd attendant was able to move me to a front row where there was space for him to sit on the floor in front of me."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the food was good and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable, and the WiFi was expensive. Plus, when I got to my destination, my suitcase has been damaged and a few items were missing."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "1) The plane was late because the crew didn't get enough sleep. 2) I was told that my flight would be at a specific gate. It was a long walk to this gate. Then I was told that the gate had been changed. Now I have a even longer walk back and then had to walk to a new gate. 3) This plane was late also. We were told the plane was still in the hanger. (Are you kidding me?) Then we had to wait some more for the clean up crew to do their thing and then the flight crew had to do their pre-flight check. Now to add insult to injury, the stewardess to us that the Wi-Fi was out on the plane. I was done and said I'll never fly United again! '"
Pros: "No problem flight"
Cons: "Announcements from cockpit inaudible"
Pros: "Left and got into destination early"
Pros: "My first trip as a handicapped traveler. All airline staff made me feel comfortable and welcome."
Cons: "In the Denver airport one of the wheelchair pushers let me stranded. The airline staff came to my rescue and got me to the restrooms and down the ramp to the airplane to Albuquerque."
