Cons: "My flight to PDX was quite bumpy so food and beverage service were impacted, which I totally understand. However, the fact that I was not served at all, does not sit well with me! They had to stop service with only a few rows left to go due to turbulence but rather it just being a delay in service, the flight attendants never came back to check on the customers they hadn’t served even when the seat belt lights turned off. I really enjoy flying Delta but not this time!"

Waiting to see how they correct this very expensive issue. And the vegan tapas option for food was not good at all. Ended up staying hungry for the duration of the flight. But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."

Pros: "Great ground staff and flight crew, except they should as warn and apologize regarding the limited gate as access so far from the check-in."

Pros: "The crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was completely down for the entire flight."
Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."

Cons: "The flight got delayed by 3 hours or more. I missed my flight from LA to FL"

Pros: "Staff as always was very attentive and courteous. The board process proceeded smoothly and we were able to depart a few minutes early."
Cons: "One attendant did display a slight level of un-professionalism after spilling a drink on my mom and not apologizing. I chalk it up to her embarrassment and she probably just forgot."
Pros: "Wide-bodied aircraft; free on-board entertainment with a good selection; complimentary snacks, helpful staff"
Cons: "Waiting 45 mins for baggage to arrive on the carousel at LAX, but probably due to the terminal move currently happening and not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Unlimited snacks and drinks..."
Cons: "The mediocre upgrade."
Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."
Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."
Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."
Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Poor food"
Pros: "The pilot came through all of the aisles in first class to personally thank us for flying with them. He took time to chat with us and answer our questions, which made me feel more comfortable about the long flight. The stewards/stewardesses were very nice and had us laughing on their welcome messages. The lay-flat seats in first class were the best. Very comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in, without disruption from other passengers who insist on keeping their reading lights on while everyone is trying to sleep."
Pros: "Row to myself"
Pros: "1st class service was excellent."
Cons: "The food in 1st class does not compare to some competitor airlines. the leather seats do not breath and can sometimes get hot."
Cons: "To be fair the flight from Honolulu to Lihue was on Hawaiian Air, not Delta per se. The crew was rude, but in the terminal and on board. Didn't really rate food and entrainment because of the flight length."
Pros: "Boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "The air conditioning was almost non-existent - then we landed at DFW, and it kicked on full blast. I was extremely uncomfortable the entire flight, but it was maddening to know it could have been much better."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES DURING A PANDEMIC. They were not keeping folks distanced from each other, they did not make sure that all the passengers had masks (I understand that people might take them off in flight briefly to drink etc but there were people that walked right on without masks on at all) The flight was FULL. They did a full drink/snack down the aisle thing ensuring that everyone packed into that small space would all be taking off their masks at the same time (if they still had it on in the first place). I did not feel safe at all."
Pros: "I got there safe!"
Cons: "I f plane had slowed downed during turbulence."
Pros: "I got an unexpected box lunch. Food was good. Thanks."
Cons: "Seats were cramped. A little more elbow room would be welcome."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and they gave us free sandwiches since the flight was so delayed. I really like how nice they were in greeting everyone and asking if you needed more drinks or food."
Cons: "Due to some kind of mechanical problems, the flight was delayed for over an hour. And also the gate changed several times, which was a little bit confusing for me."
Cons: "The flight had an emergency oxygen failure an hour into the flight, so we had to turn around and go back to the departure city for 4 hours. Extremely annoying on an overnight flight."
Pros: "On Time Departure / Early Arrival. Pleasant Crew"
Pros: "The trip started off poorly with a day delay and rebooking hotel and car at final destination. Not to mention our final destination is San Antonio not Phoenix. We were not rebooked for a flight from PHX to SAT. But after a few hours we were finally booked. We didn’t really appreciate the 7 hour layover at 0100 in the morning and nowhere to get a meal or even coffee. However, the flight had the same crew from the night prior and they were excellent. The flight was open so we were able to get more leg room, less waiting time for the bathroom, and pretty much one on one service from our flight attendants. With all the struggle in the beginning, this particular flight was actually the best flight I have been on."
Cons: "We were ok with the hotel and meal vouchers however, again, the only part of our itinerary looked at was the first flight, not the second into SAT. Had we not questioned the agent, we would have been stuck in PHX with no room, no car, and if we eventually would have gotten a flight, our reservations for car and hotel in SAT would have been cancelled and I would have been out $1700. I already lost money but it could have been worse. Basically, I am paying for a car and room that I am not currently in. Reimbursement for that would have been nice. Either way we will still travel using the travel service and this particular airline in the future."
Pros: "Boarding priority for infants"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad quality wise and some of the crew members were really short tempered drill Sargents who were in a very bad mood"
Pros: "It was a safe flight back to the Phoenix thank you."
Cons: "More ethical vegan options."
Pros: "I observer th crew at this flight were very friendly and helpful, unlike my previous flight in the past years."
Cons: "Keep it up!"
Pros: "Absolutely atrocious!"
Cons: "Dallas Airport needs to get themselves together. Especially American Airlines through Dallas. I wouldn’t wish the AA Dallas experience on my worst enemy.... yet another fail for AA Dallas."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Cons: "Old plane. No seatback entertainment available in plane."
Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "The seat size could be bigger, and the layover was awful. Sixteen hours is unheard of."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, decent entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."
Cons: "No AC, and after boarding there was an issue with the; we had to deboard and wait nearly an hour to load onto another plane."
Cons: "The entire entertainment system was down the entire 6 hour flight. Crew attempted to reboot the system several times with no luck."
Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."
Pros: "Good entertainment. Gate agents friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Friendly attendants"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and fast"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 90 minutes because the incflight mint flight was late"
Pros: "Comfortable, fast check in, nice staff, arrived a little early, great timing. Will fly AA again"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time. Modern plane. Got the sense that careful aircraft maintenance is always a high priority. Courteous attendants. Large choice of movies."
Cons: "Blankets but no pillows on this long red-eye. We need a pillow! Wrap was a bit doughy. no choices."
Pros: "Efficient, nice crew."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Terrible situation for a long flight."
Pros: "Staff is friendly and helpful, great attitudes"
Cons: "My initial flight time was changed to a longer layover for some reason. Which.. spending 6 hours in an airport is just not ideal"
Pros: "The flight crew did a good job."
Cons: "Throughout the boarding process, my spouse and I had a seat and pre-check, until we got to the airport and we were told they don't know why, but our pre-check was "dropped" so we needed to be rechecked in. What wasn't told to us was we would lose our seats and be put on the bottom of a waiting list. We were able to board bc other passengers did not show up, however we no longer had our seat preference, so I had a middle seat, although I'm a service member with a left knee issue so my seat needs to be an isle one. Also, there were no food choices that did not account for my allergy."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"
Cons: "My luggage was inexplicably placed on a later flight which arrived an hour after my flight arrived."
Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."
Cons: "Employees seemed like they didn’t like working for American. Flight was delayed and nobody informed us about it until it was past the past the boarding time. Missed connecting flight and booked on flight 5 hours past original departure time. Sat in an aisle seat and stewardess kept bumping my arms."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating attendants"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" and the seats were extremely uncomfortable for a 10 hour flight. No vegan options"
Cons: "My seat was broken and wouldn't recline very much at all."
Pros: "The entertainment was a new release movie - liked that. The food was okay."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, especially for a 7 hour trip! My tray table broke and would not close. I informed a stewardess and she apologized for the inconvenience and did her best to duct tape it shut (twice). It's an old plane, I would not recommend for a flight more than 2 hours. Wasn't greeted at boarding. Had to interrupt staff to ask which side of plane I should walk down to get to my seat. I paid extra for 12th row - waste of money!"
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding sequence"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and movie selection was excellent. They did not provide headphones however. Boo."
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. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag."
Cons: "No room, small seats and no food"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Cons: "The wifi did not work and we were not offered any food, and the beverage choice was only water or coffee. Very old plane with broken seats."
Pros: "TV and on time flight"
