Pros: Absolutely ridiculous ... sat on the runway longer than the flight.
Cons: Reason we sat on the runway longer than the flight is they were understaffed. Unacceptable.
Pros: Crew was nasty. They acted like prison guards not like they supposed to act to customers.
Pros: Plenty of room.
Cons: Heavier snacks.
Pros: Crew was very pleasant. Boarding and deplaning was smooth and easy!
Pros: Crew not so much!
Cons: A bit friendlier ...had no ice??
Pros: Crew was amazing
Cons: Food could have been better, seat was uncomfortable.
Pros: We loved the snacks, the hot towels, the timely beverage service, and great selection of video options.
Cons: Last row doesn’t recline
Pros: The plane was 2 hours late and I could not get home. Missed the connection to Greenville at 11:38. They told me there were no hotels in Atlanta and I would have to stay in the airport and then take the 8:55 am fight to Greenville. That took an hour in line and there was no help.
Cons: The pilot was awesome. He flew as fast as he could to help anyone make their connection but it didn’t help. But I appreciate him trying. Just frustrated that being military I didn’t get to board earlier or that they didn’t help me find a way home
Pros: The entertainment on the plane was nice. One of my airphones did not work.
Cons: If the screens were updated and a little easier to touch.
Pros: The crew was very good. So was the food.
Cons: The flight was 1 hour delayed
Pros: The two stewardesses were awesome helping me to reschedule possible connecting flight due to leaving mdt 2 hours late
Cons: The gate agents were extremely slow causing the flight to pull from the gate 28 minutes late. The capitan of the plane needs a course on how to be polite to an upset customer
Pros: They ran out of my preferred menu choice for the first meal. Martha went out of her way to bring my first choice for the second meal, which was very thoughtful. Nancy brought my friend an extra meal.
Cons: I thought there would be more new releases to watch, but overall the selection was good.
Pros: Entertainment options were very good
Cons: Plane was too warm,
Cons: Sat in comfort+, bbut never offered any sort of snack. Not sure why it is considered an upgrade.
Pros: Operated by Delta so great!
Cons: Waited in the runway and then taxied forever
Pros: I have never seen a gate attendant call each person by name as she scanned their boarding passes! At Delta I felt welcomed by every employee. Even the pilots greeted the passengers as they exited. All the other airlines just want my money, they want to cram me into smaller and smaller spaces and want me to sit there and shut up so they don't have to interact with me. I will fly Delta every chance I get, even if I have to pay more money.
Pros: Short flight
Cons: Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water.
Pros: The flight was good but the air didn’t work again plane was warm the space was limited but the movies were good the flight attendants were OK
Pros: Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely.
Cons: First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts.
Cons: It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed.
Pros: It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure.
Cons: No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)
Pros: The chekc in person was very helpful.
Cons: The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request.
Pros: Flight crew was awesome
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: Food was better than the usual airline food. We also got a Valentine's day chocolate.
Cons: seats too narrow, barely have room to sit and stand. No USB charger
Cons: My flight was delayed and after that they even lost my bags.
Pros: i liked the aircraft and the fact that you could watch movies on your phone!
Cons: you couldn't hear the staff when they started boarding the plane
Pros: Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!
Cons: Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area.
Pros: They solved my name matching problem with calm and efficiency, so I made it to my conference. Thank you !!
Pros: Fast and very friendly staff.
Pros: Flight was on time. And faster. I really enjoyed it.
Pros: Layout of aircraft
Cons: Couldn't find USB port.
Pros: The staff was so friendly, and funny!! Loved the movies offered and snack choices. Updated aircraft
Pros: Good Snacks, crew is friendly, toilet was clean and we arrived on time
Pros: Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it.
Cons: The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!
Pros: Very on-time and fast, respectful crew.
Cons: The airplane was old and with no entertainment.
Pros: everything on schedule; courteous staff and great pilots
Cons: everything was very ordinary so cannot complain
Cons: I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it.
Pros: Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta.
Cons: Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented.
Pros: On time. Funny pilot
Pros: Pleasant staff on board, great pilot for getting us through some horrific turbulence.
Cons: Delayed 2 hours. Worst turbulence of my life. Long time flyer but never experienced anything like that.
Pros: On time
Cons: No entertainment Small overhead bind
Pros: The staff was friendly and curtious
Pros: Delta is cheap, probably for a reason. Also had no food available on a 3 hour flight.
Cons: Delta lost our bags immediately. We were two hours early and had more than an hour between our connecting flights. Our connecting flights were literally next door to each other. However, our bag didn't make it to the connecting flight. No excuse, no explanation. We were on a 3 night vacation, and we didn't get our bags for more than 30 hours.
Pros: I enjoyed their entertainment movie choices!
Cons: I did not enjoy their food it was simple without taste. Crew member did not know what kind of chicken was being served!
Cons: Customer service was terrible and the flight departed before the departure time; as a result I missed my returning flight although i got to the airport an hour early.
Pros: We got to our destination.
Cons: Better social distancing standards. People are still getting sick even with the vaccine.
Cons: I want real Foodservice for the prices that we pay. Don't give me the covid-19 excuse
Pros: Entertainment selection. Flight was short and pretty comfortable
Cons: Flight was too packed. Limited restrictions with COVID.
Pros: Nice to fly again!
Pros: Great crew
Cons: American Airlines seats DON’T recline far enough. They cram too many rows making it more uncomfortable
Pros: The flight crew and the captain were terrific.
Cons: Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion.
Pros: Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom.
Cons: The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk.
Cons: Entreteinment. More room in the plain
Cons: I bought ticket on British airways. If I had known I would be switched to AA, I would have just bought it there & paid less
Pros: The seat is uncomfortable
Pros: some what and it could be better
Cons: the help you get from the crew and if they wouldn't make so many gate changes
Pros: Great crew. Easily accessible.
Cons: Several delays.
Pros: Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front
Pros: Confortable seating and boarding was good.
Cons: Crew was attentive to process but not the people. Kinda like machines
Pros: - entertainment - smooth boarding
Cons: - very small airplane for a 6 hour flight - no comfort seats
Pros: On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant
Cons: The spacing between rows, the aisle and size of seats were terrible. I will go back flying British Airways and Lufthansa!!!!!
Cons: Crew was rude, and we had to wait an hour to leave, I understand things happen, but then we were rerouted mid flight so it was inconvenient and again I get it, things happen. But the landing was incredibly rough and the pilot didn’t apologize. That would have made things better, but he said nothing about being sorry we were delayed and nothing about the rough landing.
Pros: Comfortable seats
Cons: Nothing I didnt like
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 crew was wonderful of the flight was fine!
Cons: Arriving 2 hours before my flight I had a hard time getting through security because of my handicap situation, I arrived at the gate as the plane was leaving the gate, whie American Airlines where able to get me on the next flight, the flight was 3 hours after my original flight! JW
Pros: The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!
Pros: Flight was delayed due to ice storm. AA personnel were calm and kept passengers informed of when we might expected to get the next flight out. They brought in sandwiches, chips and water, which was a thoughtful thing to do.
Pros: Flights to Reno tend to be empty if you fly in the right time of the week. I booked the cheapest ticket and ended up getting an exit row all to myself.
Cons: There is no seatback TV which is a major drawback. They do have a service that you can stream through your personal device but my power outlet didn’t work so my laptop died mid movie.
Pros: Flight was fast and comfortable.
Cons: I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again.
Pros: The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful
Cons: Had to rush to catch this connecting flight. At boarding time, which we just made, the previous flight had just landed and people starting to deplane. All we would have wanted was an accurate announcement versus an unfriendly feeling from the gate agent
Pros: Not a single part has a positive remark
Cons: Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners
Cons: Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet.
Pros: I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted.
Cons: I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there.
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.
Pros: Flight attendants were courteous and hardworking. Made sure all passengers were taken care of.
Pros: Very smooth trip from beginning to end.
Pros: The crew was phenomenal!
Cons: The PA system was not working in the terminal, so crew member had to yell for passengers to hear her while calling out the groups to board.
Pros: Was able to get my flight transferred!
Cons: I liked Everything!
Pros: Very simple process. Easiest trip ever. Baggage was easy. Nice staff.
Pros: Nice crew
Pros: Smooth and quick
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: Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat.
Pros: Fast boarding. Arrived earlier. Nice plane, very clean.
Pros: Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had.
Cons: Staff behaviour
Pros: Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane.
Pros: Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before.
Pros: Both power and USB plugs at each seat. Entertainment options not bad.
Cons: Very narrow seats with little leg room. Reclined seat in front of you is right in your face.
Cons: Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds.
