We boarded the plane only to find out (nearly immediately) that we would be sitting at the gate for over an hour while the radio altimeter was being repaired or replaced and the necessary "mountain of paperwork" was to be completed. It is no fun to sit on a tiny plane late at night for so long without making any progress toward the destination.
Pros: "Great crew! Very friendly!"
Pros: "It was great, friendly staff"
Pros: "The seats were extremely comfortable! I"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, boarding was good"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work, my tv didn’t work either"
Cons: "Always delays , three times late before took off and than while landing ! First class seat and seat tray don’t close , tv doesn’t work how it suppose too"
Pros: "Crew very helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost an hour due to inclement weather in the originating city. The Delta personnel explained the situation and did all they could considering the circumstances."
Pros: "The plane arrived in Atlanta ahead of time and thus we were able to start boarding earlier than usual. The gate agent kept the process in order and moved the boarding process along nicely. The pilots also got us to Baton Rouge 28 minutes ahead of schedule which was appreciated. Nice flight."
Cons: "Same issue with getting passengers seated once on the aircraft and then getting their luggage stowed takes too much time."
Pros: "Fast boarding, quick flight, friendly attendants."
Cons: "Freezing flight! So cold. From Atlanta to Pensacola in June, one should not freeze."
Pros: "Delta crew and offerings are great."
Cons: "After my flight was delayed for over 3 hrs - the counter clerk was rude and unhelpful. She felt it was appropriate for her to flick the customer service phone number in front of my teenage daughters. I would say avoid Delta!"
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Pros: "Can’t do anything about bad weather-we got through despite a weather delay. Crew was terrific."
Pros: "The service by delta employees for this leg of my journey was beyond great. The leg room was above average."
Cons: "Leg room. Never can have enough leg room."
Pros: "the food was really top notch and service was great and friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was awesome. Very efficient"
Cons: "Couldn’t connect to see the trip on the monitor but no big deal. Still was able to watch tv"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "We had mechanical problems and had to come back to Atlanta, get off our plane and get on another one"
Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."
Cons: "But the seats are so tight that we were definitely elbow to elbow and once seated I was unable to access even the purse that was at my feet. There was no entertainment and the tray table was tiny, not even an indentation for a cup!"
Pros: "Smooth flight; on time; easy check-in"
Cons: "Food was o.k., but not great"
Cons: "It was a 1.5 hour late leaving San Diego (6am flight), one of three bathrooms out, no coffee or tea (wtf?), we circled Atlanta for an hour, ran out of gas, landed in Pensacola, no information, missed the flight to DC ... And it's not even noon"
Pros: "The fact I arrived safely"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline"
Cons: "7 hours delayed. Poor front desk worker, nice flight attendants!"
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome"
Pros: "Easy boarding, Love to the sad that you were not nickeled and dimed while in flight they provided wonderful food and snacks. The crew so friendly and very hard working constantly there to please the passengers also having Free movies made the 5 and a 1/2 hour flight go very quickly. I fly across country frequently I will always fly Delta."
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Pros: "Upgraded. Arrived early"
Cons: "No entertainment system even in 1rst class"
Pros: "Wouldn't know wasn't able to make it to the flight"
Cons: "The fact that for the second time in 2 months Delta issues kept me from making my flight"
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Cons: "On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF"
Cons: "Haven't made it yet... still on standby in later flight"
Pros: "Clean and on time. Staff helpful and courteous. Great trip"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Cons: "I froze on the way to Las Vegas and there weren't enough blankets."
Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"
Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"
Pros: "The attendants on flight were amazing! The flight was perfect! We arrived early!"
Pros: "Small cubicles are pretty comfortable but a little cramped . No they are upgrading their business class to larger "suites" and that will be good . The food is good but nothing to write home about . Your payment system works well but as usual there is a somewhat limited library."
Pros: "Plenty of movies and music to entertain"
Cons: "Economy seats have no leg room and seats are very uncomfortable to your back during a 8hr flight. Flight attendants skipped rows for drinks, snacks, etc and would have to be called back. Paying close to a thousand per ticket, you'd expect a little better experience but oh well."
Pros: "When I finally got on a flight (see what I didn't like), the crew was very helpful and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."
Cons: "Short flight didn't provide food or beverage service. Cabin crew announcements were rapid & muffled, difficult or impossible to hear or understand. Would not have felt confident if there'd been an emergency."
I have not met a person yet who has been able to figure out the American Airlines app for entertainment.
Terrible, My mom and myself waited more than 3 hours in the check in line and because of AA staff negligence lost the flight, locator ZXOFZS. The bad service of the crew was incredible at the RDU airport.
Cons: "never made it to this flight."
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "Nothing. The plane was late. The WiFi didn’t work. The plane was hot in 90 degree weather and after travelling almost 19 hours I needed a little comfort."
Cons: "At least make the WiFi better."
Pros: "On time flight, efficient, friendly crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "I was told that 30 minutes is plenty of time to make a connection at DCA. However in order to make a connection there you need to take a bus across the tarmac. The bus sat on the tarmac loading up with way too many people for 10+ min… Almost missed our connection"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very polite. Both of us are blind, and they told us the information we needed – how far away is the nearest exit row. Otherwise they treated us like everyone else!"
Cons: "lack of communication on flight delay"
Pros: "Amazing plane and service"
Pros: "Plane was clean, wifi worked"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5hrs, had to wait on tarmac 30min to take off and 15min to get to gate, bumpy flight. Jerky inputs from pilot."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful!"
Pros: "I enjoyed everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "Our 5:30am flight was delayed for over 4 hours causing us to miss our connection. So by the time we got to our destination we had wasted the entire day. This was a loss of an entire day of our vacation. This was our first time traveling with American. We will never book with them again."
Pros: "Flight was an hour early getting in due to favorable tailwinds - liked that!"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable, but probably not many would be for that long of a flight."
Pros: "Boarding went well. The service was good. The seats were pretty solid. I like the 2-4-2 seating on the A-332. AA check-in went very smoothly."
Cons: "The touch screens were fairly poor on the entertainment centers. The meals were just OK. The headrests on the seats weren't as supportive as I'd have like on a long flight."
Pros: "Late takoff"
Cons: "Late takeoff"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Someone stole an ipad and that forced us the be delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Liked the crew. The flight was on time and went as expected. We are safe and happy so can’t get much better right?"
Cons: "Didn’t like the credit card advertising announcement over the intercom and then again by the crew. The lack of food and snack options was pretty sad but that’s par for the course nowadays. One of my pet peeves: People boarded with out verification of their boarding pass location. By the time we boarded, 90% of the plane was loaded and we were in the middle. Luckily that had no impact but annoying bc people are trying to get their overhead bins before they run out, which they did."
Pros: "Food is better than most other airline food I've had. They re-seated us so we could sit together."
Cons: "Old, old, old plane. The entertainment system was ancient."
Pros: "The crew and their understanding about our frustrations with delays"
Cons: "Repeated delays. Not AA’s fault."
Pros: "Everything worked the way it was supposed to. Bag transfer through customs and transfer to domestic was easy."
Cons: "Snacks and food in general on US operated airlines is generally sad. American Airlines should learn from Qantas about food quality and service."
Pros: "It was good. They did their job adequately."
Pros: "It was generally ok"
Cons: "The tourbulance was crazy The fact I received my bag in Sacramento and it was damaged upset me a lot"
Cons: "The e-ticket did not include the terminal information. As it was an Iberia flight I went to the terminal 7 where Iberia operates. However, after waiting on line when I got to the counter the attendant informed me that the flight was operated by American Airlines and I had to go to terminal 8. I ran to terminal 8 but by the time I got to the check in it was 6:15 and they said they said the check-in for the flight at 7(which was actually at 6:55pm) was closed for check-in. I was lucky enough that there was another Iberia flight (this one from terminal 7) st 8:30pm and the supervisor was able to find me a spot in that flight."
Pros: "En general el proceso fue sencillo y el vuelo a tiempo."
Cons: "Al momento de hacer la entrega de equipaje en Miami no había personal de la aerolínea brindando información, fue confuso."
Cons: "Delayed over two hrs due to mech. Known long befire scheduled departure according to pilot. Did not know why alt plane was not provided sooner! Not best airline as claimed!"

Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"
Pros: "I like the fact we got to Dayton 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we don't have access to the overhead"
Cons: "Flighr got delayed resting in connecting flight missing, AA didnt bother to comp the 6 hours of waiting by providing a hotel. Instead AA pretended to give a discount for a Hyatt which would end up costing 100 usd anyway, the same peice for hotels in that area anyone can fond on hotwire for 4+ hotels. Bad customer service, bad expectations management."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Pros: "The only nice thing was the plane."
Cons: "There was terrible service. And we missed out connection because an empty plane was sitting at our gate. There is no way the airline did not know this plane was at our gate. They also did not play for our hotel to stay the night. Never flying American again. Not a single employee seems to know what's going on."
Pros: "Great experience! Entertainment was up to par. Had plenty of up to date and unreleased content. Seats are much more comfortable now as well. Service was great too! As a nearly 40 year old man they allowed me to see the cockpit and that was the first time I was ever offered in my life. Thank you!!"
Cons: "Lack of a decent snack besides pretzels..."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Crew let people move to main cabin extra without paying like I did"
Pros: "The flight boarded really quickly with absolutely excellent service from the flight crew. The pilots and crew were so considerate, and helpful. They totally took care of all of us. From the time I got on to the flight to the time I got off the crew were there to make sure I was taken care of."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, smooth flying, arrived on time"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could have been more user friendly"
Cons: "Had to wait for pilot coming from Mexico flight for 20 mins after everyone boarded"
Cons: "Seat would not recline. Normally wouldn't be an issue, but it would have been nice to be more comfortable on a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants!!"
Cons: "We boarded an hour late with no explanation then left even later because we were so far back on the run way. Also the last checking me in was not the kindest! Nor was the man who scanned my ticket to go on the plane."
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Pros: "This is a old 767 I was on. No individual TV's. The reading lights never worked. I chanced it on buying the wifi for $19 dollars which turned out to be super fast and I was able to stream movies. Meal and drinks and beer were included. But no way to charge your phone with out a car charger. This plane had no AC ports."
Cons: "I liked the food was included and beer."
Cons: "multiple delays from American airline in Madrid and Chicago, not giving me good alternative, not owning the issue"
Pros: "Ecerything from the boarding to the seating assignment"
Cons: "Just have to be organize as they do the boarding process"
Pros: "Quick action on potential turbulence"
Cons: "Too warm on the plane."
Cons: "Did not get to finish the movie I was watching on my first flight and movies were not offered on this flight."
Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"
Pros: "Being able to have my own individual entertainment. Staff handled the situation at hand with dealing with everyone's frustration pretty well."
Cons: "That we had to wait for a pilot to show up for the original pilot fidnt show up for work. Then had to deboard just to get back on 15 minutes later as too many people wanted to get off, which delayed take off."
