Cons: "It was fabulous as always! Thank you. I love Delta!"

Cons: "It was fabulous as always! Thank you. I love Delta!"
Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Delays out of MCI and late arrival, no hope for a decent seat on HNL leg, couldn't sit with husband, huge smelly seat mate, used up 10,000 miles on my account and paid higher price than current ticket price, middle seats, not happy"
Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."
Pros: "It was Ok. Some short delay but over all not too bad. Just didn't like the fact I always get seats next to the toilet"
Pros: "Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!"
Cons: "There’s nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Had no problems with my carry on."
Cons: "Paying for an assigned seat is ridiculous so my friend and I didn’t sit next to each other."
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth takeoff"
Cons: "The loud child behind me kicking my seat and yelling"
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
Cons: "We are letting too many people with the flu, travel. This in turn is spreading it to other places and getting too many people sick. We need to control this more. I don’t have an option after spending all this money on if I can stay healthy or not, and that is not ok."
Pros: "Probably the fact that I flew with my friend and both agreed on how bad this airline is."
Cons: "This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight."
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Cons: "Delayed. We were unable to change the flight to sit together. Staff not very helpful"
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "We’re still alive."
Cons: "Customer service and the flight crew were very rude. No WiFi or entertainment."
Cons: "It would be better if they organized themselves the right way and don’t let their passengers lose their flights without any compensation"
Pros: "Don’t like anything about them"
Cons: "These people people are leaches! Stay away or they will suck your blood!"
Cons: "I tried to find out who checked me into the flight and her supervisor. I was discriminated against for having a service animal. I was told my doctors paperwork was insufficient. I called spirit airlines to see who was working and they could not find out. I will never fly again with spirit."
Pros: "Flight was good and on time. Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The little add ons for luggage, etc"
Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "Zero amenities in plane such as power plug for charging a cell phone."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Entire experience was terrible. Last time I fly with spirit"
Pros: "The flight path selected allowed us to arrive 10 minutes early."
Cons: "I would like to see more food offerings. I would also like to see the crew have more willingness to encourage parents to control the noise of their children."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. Boarding was unorganized. No wifi available. The crew is nice."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I received the worst service while flying with my two year old. The flight attendant would not let me get up to change my sons diaper it was very frustrating. she was trying to intimidate my son so he can sit on his seat something he's not use to because he has always sat on my lap. I think the situation could of been handled differently on her part."
