Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The gate agent in Medford for delta was awesome"
Pros: "WiFi and Entertainment"

Cons: "Had to collect & re check luggage between flights. Couldn't they have been transferred to the next aircraft?"
Cons: "Better screens for in-flight movies. More legroom or upgrade options."
Cons: "Seat didnt recline and very tight between passenger seats"
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. It took longer than expected due to the hurricane. When we arrived, there was no gate so we had to sit on the runway forever. Then the gate checked bags took forever. I was supposed to have a 1.5 hour layover. I barely made my connection as I only had 20 minutes left until takeoff by the time we got off the plane."
Pros: "Atlanta airport is super duper organized!!! No problem getting tons of people through passport control & customs! Lots of well English speaking guiding staff- i was delighted!"
Cons: "On the international aircraft, 767, the monitors were smaller and hab on the domestic flights flight, the picture was way too dark to enjoy & sound out of one earpiece only"
Cons: "What food am I rating? The cookies?"
Cons: "Bad information about delays"
Pros: "Timeliness, easy trip"
Cons: "This was the longest part of a three flight trip back to DCA and there was no movies. This was completely unexpected, so I wasn't prepared to entertain myself for 5 very long hours. It would have been nice to have know this ahead of time so I could have brought a book with me. Early notification thru the app is the way to go."
Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"
Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."
Pros: "The flight was good, Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "I asked one of the crew members to help me to get a better seat as I was very tired and wanted to sleep better during the flight and he didnt pay attention to me. I realized there were emthy seats available during the flight"
Pros: "Everything was great from boarding to landing."
Pros: "The Delta team was very kind and accommodating to me and my baby and did all they could to make it easier for me."
Cons: "Baggage drop- the line was longer for that than the security clearance! Perhaps have people pay at the kiosk for their baggage so the line moves more quickly."
Pros: "The flight was delayed 6 hours but the crew and captain were exceptionally accommodating, helpful, and informative on updates."
Cons: "Customer Service was horrid except for last attendant. At one point one rep sent us running out of a secured area to retrieve our luggage and then go to British Airways for connection. We had 45 minutes in front of BA ticket rep to get us on BA182 and they took so long we missed the boarding due to reps slow processing to issue ticket. Then we were stuck outside of secured area."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flights on time Wi-Fi available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "Seats rather crowded in coach, small plane so it was also a bit noisy"
Pros: "Fast and very friendly staff."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Second flight was a newer plane - sweet!"
Cons: "For a long flight perhaps a little more in the snack department."
Pros: "everything was very nice"
Pros: "Clean and good size sears"
Cons: "Slow boarding, crew tires and it showed, pretzels no nuts,"
Pros: "Delta fo"
Pros: "The staff was was very accommodating to myself and my 19 month old daughter"
Pros: "Polite and efficient"
Pros: "everything on schedule; courteous staff and great pilots"
Cons: "everything was very ordinary so cannot complain"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Tv wouldn't work and delay that wasn't weather related and the food was awful"
Cons: "I had a problem getting a boarding pass that was a carryforward from a problem that I had had on the flights from the USA to Frankfort 2 weeks earlier. On those flights, I was denied boarding on the flight from Amsterdam to Frankfort because of miscommunication between Delta and KLM. Apparently, the staff who dealt with that problem did not note that the issue had occurred, so it looked like there were "out-of-sequence" segments on my initial flight and I was not allowed to check in electronically. It took several calls to KLM and Delta in Frankfurt to try to resolve the problem and finally it was determined that it could only be resolved at the airport. Other than a very nice KLM representative, the other people I talked to seemed unwilling to engage in helping me and sent me along to someone else. Although the problem was ultimately fixed, this was not a great customer service experience."
Pros: "There were some delays and issues with air traffic control, but they brought out snacks after a half hour which was really nice. Overall, great!"
Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
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."
Pros: "Comfortable, courtesy, good service."
Cons: "Please, there is never a vegetarian option. Many people do not want to eat meat. Very easy to offer a sandwich with vegetables or a little bowl of rice and beans..."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Pros: "We flew 1st class and this was out first time on a 767. Wow! Amazing seats that recline as well as foot rests that extend. USB and electrical outlets, bigger tray tables, massaging seats, etc. I had a special meal request and the flight attendant was very professional and pleasant about it."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great!"
Cons: "See above airport connection disaster...."
Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and efficiently"
Cons: "Everthing went well no complaints"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Great crew"
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: "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!"
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."
Pros: "Travel time was great"
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."
Pros: "Very comfortable, fast, nice staff"
Cons: "They didn’t offer a snack!"
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant"
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 $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."
Pros: "Finnair uses the American Airlines flight for this destination. Non-stop flight Raleigh to Heathrow (round trip).. Fantastic, on time and comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "It would have been easier to book our seat assignments if Fdfinnair had directed us to contact American Airlines directly to get seat assignments. Could not pre-select through Finnair. If you did not want the meat meal the vegetarian meals on both flights included mushrooms...not into fungi."
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."
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: "The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!"
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
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: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"
Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"
Pros: "The only thing good was the airplane – a 787."
Cons: "Missed the flight because of problem with the CDG trains. Crew on the ground were absolutely useless. I ended up getting another flight the second day using the customer service number. The cecking in process was terrible. The agent was terrible.on the flight, the crew kept banging almost everybody with the food cart. One poor lady behind me got water spelled on her, hit by cart few times, and food spelled."
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: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."
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: "They had a delay that bumped our international connection. We had to switch airports and airlines and arrived significantly later than originally planned, causing us to miss pre-wedding events."
Cons: "Cramped seating, uncomfortable cabin temperature, very hard/jolting landing"
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"
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Prices are high and changes are frequent on rates"
Pros: "I changed my reservation in Hartford. Crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "I ended up getting to my destination 6 hours after what I had planned."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "Overnight stay due to missed flight with no luggage or medication."
Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"
Cons: "American Airlines was late! There was no indication that the flight was late until it was time to board, then they indicated it would be 25 minutes late, which actually turned into 50 minutes until the plane arrived. It had to be cleaned and prepared for our flight, which then took off over 1 1/2 hours late. Many passengers missed their connecting flights and American Airlines was no help... they directed people to the Miami Airport Crew. American Airlines stated that the plane was late due to air traffic control issues, but in reality the plane hadn't even arrived yet. I felt like I was lied to! Shame on American Airlines! I will never fly with this company by choice!"
Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Cons: "I'm still limping slightly from not having hardly any legroom period but it's just a fact that you're playing too not designed for people like me"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, too narrow, and little leg room."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "Entertainment screens at every seat. Enjoying and helped pass time of flight very well"
Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge"
Cons: "I did not like how I requested a same day flight, was presented with a low fare, so I took it, and it was deceptively a different day months in the future. . . This is not a flight I feel I should have paid for, as I feel I was deceived"
Pros: "Chargers in the back of the seat for devices Friendly staff Nice quality airplanes"
Cons: "Paid for WiFi, and it was very choppy and slow. Took over 3-4 min, and several refreshes to send/receive an email."
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing beat Pilot and the flight crew ...... "FANTASTIC""
