Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Seats very close together for a flight that lasts over 5 hours."
Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that the flight was delayed out of LAX by about 30 minutes due to the flight in-bound being delayed. However, the captain made up most of this time in the air so it ended up being a non-issue."
Cons: "Platinum member. Flying with gold colleague. He was upgraded. I was 1 on the list, wirh 3 openings. Asked gate agent, and she said just take my seat. Asked attendant, she said same. So spent flight in last seat in back next to bathroom, while 2 comfort + seats were empty. Did not feel like a valued customer."
Pros: "I love the aesthetic of the new planes. Boarding was seamless and the staff was great! More cookies please!"

Cons: "Delta offered nothing for canceling my flight, rescheduling me on one over 24 hours later with two layovers to Miami. I lost money on hotel reservations and never even made it on my trip. Couldn’t reach delta for over 24 hrs to confirm whether I’d get a refund or not"
Pros: "The flights were on time and they did two drink and snack services. Great crew!"
Pros: "We have been on 6 flights over the last 8 days, all with Delta and we have already started telling people how wonderful the service was. Sherry on this last flight was amazing, working so hard all by herself as our flight attendant. We were very impressed. And the pilots all came out to say goodbye and thank you. All very nice...esp for me who needed some wheelchair assistance. We will certainly fly with you again in the future."
Cons: "Smaller plane but ok for short flight"
Pros: "Seats and service."
Cons: "Pilot did not give consistent updates for delays"
Cons: "I has nothing to do with the flight it self! The original fight was cancelled from Minneapolis to Atlanta (with no notice) I found this out by calling!! I was told a confirmation of a new flight was going to be email once the request from the support had been approved (the email confirmation was never received). I was also instructed multiple times to not show at the airport unless I had receive the confirmation. I was up most of the night waiting for this confirmation that never came!! I received an email this morning letting me know the fight from ALT to Mexico had been delay!! When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!! Your team insisted on scheduling a flight for next week or a full refund!! This was not a money matter!! It's about getting some one home for the Holidays who has helped a ill person during the most vulnerable time in her life!!"
Pros: "Excellent leg room. Comfy seat"
Cons: "Seat couldn't recline back. Was a little uncomfortable for a long flight. Chair had crumbs on it before I sat down-it was easily wiped away meaning no one had cleaned the chairs or looked at them beforehand. Absolutely freezing. Wearing long socks and boots and my feet still felt frozen by the end."
Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make it home. I checked in the same time with my daughter we have the exact same bags, hers made it mine did not. How does that happen? They said it would be on the next flight and would deliver it to my home. Eight hours later and I still have not seen it."
Pros: "We finally got home"
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."
Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The economy plus wasn't nearly as nice as any other airlines. It gave the least amount of extra leg room and the only other amenity they gave was a toothbrush. Even United economy plus is bigger. Plus if you want to change anything you have to pay include just to try and go stand by on an earlier flight."
Pros: "On time great baggage retrieval"
Pros: "everything was very nice"
Cons: "VERY bumpy ride- scary"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"

Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"
Pros: "Brand new plane"

Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Cabin air was very warm. Individual A/C fan was very slow. With it being a night flight, I was unable to read since my overhead light was not working."
Cons: "We had over 2 hours layover in Atlanta. After eating lunch at getting to gate B1 and waiting a while, I got an alert from the Delta app on my phone that said that the flight was now loading at A30. This was incorrect information that had several people upset. This was my first flight to use the Delta app to track my baggage. It was never updated to let me know where it was until after I landed in BHM. The app indicated that my bag was on another flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was fairly good, even on economy class."
Cons: "Probably not under Delta's control, but the customs at Seatac is extremely disorganized. The contrast between CDG (Paris), which was very good, and SEA (Seattle), which was very chaotic, was quite large."
Cons: "Old plane. No seat back entertainment. No USB ports"
Pros: "Everything was fine Food entertainment"
Cons: "Because the flight was delayed a whole day and night I was exhausted. I have been trying to get the $200 delayed trip rebate. I was given no instructions on how to do this finally after speaking to a travel agent I got a phone numbers I could call. Called and was told what web sight to go to. Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"
Cons: "First flight delayed for mechanical. Put on another flight. About to take off and ground for two hrs on the tarmac. No refreshments offered on either. The only thing they did was tell us we had the right to de board after sitting in silence for 1.5 hrs. I wish I could say this is not the norm for American Airlines but they are 5/6 in the past two months for being late and having mechanical issues"
Pros: "Really enjoy flying first class."
Cons: "No turbulence"
Cons: "Late with a bs explanation. Nasty flight attendant"
Cons: "Was not allowed to get on slightly early with a car seat and a 3 year old to get situated in the seats, though on every other flight we have been allowed to. There was a delay that caused us to miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "This flight, along with the bulk of AA flights, were cancelled, leaving me stranded and missing work meetings."
Cons: "I was forced to check my bag due to the full flight. My bag didn’t make it to my final destination. I’m concerned because this has happened before. I need my bag before the weekend."
Pros: "Nice seating"
Cons: "They asked who would give there seat up for 600$ future flight credit and The first two people could be eligible. They ignored me (who was first) for a white couple who Came after me, and they got chosen and got the flight credit, but I was as clearly first. So I think it was more of a racist matter"
Pros: "Not one thing. AA promised us a hotel. No we did not get that. And because I changed my flight on the phone (cause stuck in airport) said we we were supposed to stay there. We were not Compensated with a food voucher. I was supposed leave St Lucia though Miami and I am disappointed"
Cons: "So many ways"
Pros: "- entertainment - smooth boarding"
Cons: "- very small airplane for a 6 hour flight - no comfort seats"
Pros: "Everything ran according to schedule. Everyone was professional and nice."
Cons: "I wish all families with young children could always pre-board; that was not the case on this flight. The gate agent “let” us board with Group 4, which was at least something. No tv screens on these seats. And I really don’t like the full-volume pitch for the AA credit card. They’re trying to take advantage of a captive audience, and no one likes it."
Cons: "They forgot to plan a pilot....also the crew was 45 min late"
Pros: "Getting off."
Cons: "Boarding the way there, they did not honor my AA Advantage card to board earlier because my boarding pass did not say so. Even after seeing it said so in the computer system, they refused to honor it. Further, there were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies."
Pros: "comfortable seating, lots of movie choices. food and drink selections were nice.Galley snack choices were underwhelming"
Cons: "Staff was fair, but nothing compared to the service on JAL from CA to Tokyo. Very loud throughout the flight pushing the drink cart through the 8 Business Class rows instead of just delivering drinks to the 32 people in the section. Once the initial food & beverage service was complete, the service practically disappeared unless i sought them out in the galley."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, the service and the food was great."
Pros: "The crew member was great."
Pros: "Good food service and friendly crew. No waits in line for bathrooms."
Cons: "That my bag was overweight and I would have to get out of line and go to another section of the airport to rearrange my luggage, which would make it too time consuming. Had no choice but had to pay the steep charge!"

Pros: "Arrived on time despite late departure"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "On time, even with de-icing. Very empty flight, so lots of room to spread out."
Cons: "The older md80’s that AA is still flying are really showing their age. It will be nice when they update their fleet."
Cons: "It was delayed for 5 hours"
Pros: "Everything was very adequate, nothing special about this flight."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed about 35 minutes just due to traffic on the runway. Out of all the flights on our international trip, the only issues we experienced were with American airports. You would think an issue like this would be readily solved by foreplanning, but instead we sat on the tarmac just waiting for our turn to take off. Some form of entertainment on the plane would've been nice. Or at least a place to charge electronics. Our bags arrived at our destination before we did, and although I immediately received a text alerting me to this fact, I was dismayed to find out they were in an entirely different terminal of the DFW airport. After 24 hours of travel and very little sleep, instead of just walking off the plane and retrieving our bags, our group of 20 weary souls had to first determine where our luggage was, catch a bus to a different terminal ( because of the size of our group we couldn't all fit on the first bus, so had to wait for the second bus), and then track down our bags. American Airlines did absolutely nothing to help make this experience any easier for us. Five of our party were in wheelchairs due to various levels of exhaustion or ailment, and all we were told is "I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do." This little adventure delayed us about an hour."
Pros: "I usually fly Air France but AA was terrific. Tasty food, pleasant crew, even the toilets were nicely maintained during the 9 hours flight. The only thing that AF does better is provide a full array of printed matter before boarding."
Cons: "The crew was rude, one member complained the whole time saying she deserved a raise. We sat on the runway an hour because we were overweight and had to burn off fuel (which lead to me almost missing my connecting flight. they didn't ask before having someone sit next to me (when the seat was suppose to be free). was woken for every reason except food. check in was a nightmare and I was selected for extra checks (so I couldn't check in online). Terrible. Will never fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Couldnt check in because kayak booking didnt give the right info for my flight. Kiosk couldnt find me....so much stress..."
Cons: "Had to stand in line to talk to finnair, aa, and used the kiosk 3 times. Nobody could help, ticket info wasnt right."
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."
Pros: "I liked the overnight trip. I got to sleep. Great crew. Not alot of passengers."
Cons: "Had to pay for snacks and tea."
Pros: "Smooth flight, pilots were friendly. It was a nice flight"
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "Smooth and very friendly service!"
Pros: "Good connection"
Pros: "Nice aircraft,"
Cons: "let down by unattentive staff and felt more like a budget airline with the fact that you have to pay for meals"
Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Pros: "Nice crew. Chairs were comfortable."
Cons: "Not enough movies! No individual screens. Plans had dirt stuck all along the air vents"
Cons: "The check in process took to long. In line more than an hour."
Cons: "Rude staff sarcastic"
Pros: "I. Did not take this flight had a family emergency had to get home right away"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Had to find an alternative way to get home"
Cons: "Next time dont delay my flight 11h!!!!"
Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"
Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"
Cons: "The flight was operated by American Eagle, on a small regional commuter jet. We had to board from the tarmac and climb a steep flight of stairs to board. Not advisable for anyone with limited mobility."
Cons: "They changed our gate four times and delayed our flight two hours. Got in after midnight and wasn't able to pick up my rental car."
Pros: "The flight didn't exceed 15 minutes to take off. Most AA flights I have taken in the past were delayed were 3+ hours. Boarding was completed efficiently and the entertainment, even though was on a common screen, was okay rather showing nothing."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional, yelling across the plane because they couldn't figure out the seating arrangements for a family. It seems there was an error on AA's part of overbooking. They also forgot to my husband's beverage and never looked back. It would also be nice to have individual screens with the ability to freely watch entertainment provided."
Cons: "We will NEVER fly AA again."
Pros: "Landed early and everything was just as expected."
Pros: "Not sure I can comment on this particular flight."
Cons: "On time departure, being truthful about delayed departure time and taxiing time, easier landing (had a lot of ear pain from rapid air pressure drop), It took over 30 mins from the time the plane landed for bags to load on the carousel"
Pros: "I booked business, so not too bad."
Cons: "I don't know why United doesn't take the 8 hr flight to Honolulu as serious as they do international flights. The business class was like being in Priorty seats with food and reclining. I was in the middle seat of 4 seats. still a crowed feeling. I would not waste my money on business on that flight"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "Flight was on an older CRJ 200, which was a little cramped and grungy-appearing."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay."

Cons: "Better food options, better quality snacks."
Cons: "The WiFi system is very slow"
Pros: "The attendant was nice about it"
Cons: "They tried to still get me home on the same day. They even put me on a different airline. It did not work. I am in Chicago for 24 hrs with one $12 meal voucher. A burger at the hotel is $17"
Pros: "the arrival on the other end"
Cons: "on tarmac 1-1/2 hours conflicting info....went from delay due to traffic/weather, to extended flight time due to reroute, to asking 10 people to volunteer to get off or 10 would be chosen to have to get off, 4 people volunteered, was holding my breath to be “picked off” when the 4 people were let back on and we took off an hour late. the flight steward spoke so unreasonably fast you couldn’t understand a word she said and she had an overall bad attitude....very disappointing from United"
Pros: "I like the people are friendly and when traveling by myself it is always a pleasure to have someone next to me to have a good conversation"
Cons: "I did like the food option. I don't eat cheese and all the food had cheese in it."
Pros: "Loved that I was in the single seat and it was a quick flight"
Pros: "The entertainment interface and selection was fantastic!"
Cons: "Minor, but an arm rest would not stay up. Also, let's face it, the food food is never excellent, rarely good, but understandably hard to make so."
Pros: "Made up all delays in the air"
Pros: "The crew were excellent. They exhibited good customer service and was pleased by their recycling initiatives."
Pros: "I would like to have movies shown during long flights."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and the Pilot gave us periodic updates which was also nice. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "There is NO ROOM. The seats are just too close together making them extremely uncomfortable. I was also disappointed that there was no DirecTV. The choices with the in-flight entertainment was very minimal and outdated. And the Wi-Fi was ridiculously expensive."
Pros: "Very quick flight from ORD to BHM involving hardly any bad weather which got me home early."
Cons: "The online entertainment had poor connectivity and did not work, forcing me to take a nap to kill time."
Pros: "Flight took off on time"
Pros: "Clean waiting area; enough room overhead for my carryon bag."
Cons: "Couldn't get internet based entertainment on my iPhone as advertised"
Cons: "we had to sit on runway for 1 hr to burn fuel to lighten the load. did not get served until 1 hr of fly time."
Cons: "Wifi never worked, mentioned several times to crew and didn't have decency to check or follow up. Attendants were crabby at best and were acting like they were doing passengers a favor by even. Wing there. Very rude and unprofessional to every question. Captain came out to go to bathroom twice and chatted up remaining flight attendant for several minutes- making it so passengers couldn't approach restrooms."
Pros: "The flight attendant was professional and pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding in Houston was disorganized"
Pros: "The stroopwaffles were a tasty treat. The flight was well managed and crew was attentive and professional. I never have problems with United and like how pilots keep us informed with when to expect turbulence. The first hour through storms was a bit scary. T.v. on the seats was a good feature but I didn't order anything."
Cons: "I put my phone in the pocket in front of me and when I took it out it was sticky with gum someone put in there. Inevitably crew can't check every pocket and nook for gum or garbage from previous travelers. I don't blame them. We almost were asked to leave the flight bc it was overbooked by 2 seats. Made me a bit nervous when we walked by check-in and they pointed out we were a traveling pair. Lucky there were a few others"
Cons: "Was seated next to an obese woman and had to share my seat with her because of her size. I paid full price for a seat but only got to use 75% of it for a 5 hour long red eye flight. Very uncomfortable and very unfair"
Cons: "Two hours late!"
Pros: "Ran out of food so we had no food for a 5 hour flight Las airport is a nightmare; so much walking involved. For seniors ask for assistance"
Cons: "Flight delayed 11 hrs, they could not offer me an alternative to get me to my event in time so after five hours at the airport I had to return home. Their offer was "maybe" a refund and a $10 food credit. Out $500+ lost in hotel fees at my destination- which most importantly, was my ten year grad school reunion!"
Pros: "Onboard service"
Cons: "The fact that we had to pay extra in order to have room to Cross our legs."
Pros: "On time, no delays."
Pros: "Delays, rudeness, doesn't have its act together. Must be United Airlines"
Pros: "I was never able to take the flight because of a significant delay in arrival in Tucson and subsequent arrival in Chicago."

Cons: "Never took flight"
Cons: "The flight left an hour and 15 minutes after the scheduled time."
Cons: "We got on board, waited 20 minutes. Capt said it was a bad reverser, and we were waiting on paperwork for 15 minutes. Long story short, they make us leave the plane after 2.5 hours. Then we wait in the airport for another 2.5 hours. I missed my connection and spent 10 hours in Chicago."
Cons: "I am TSA approved. I am Global Entry approved. The TSA pre- check did not appear on my boarding passes. I was body searched 3 times, had no privileges, my luggage opened and scrutinized."
Pros: "Seating arrangement"
Cons: "The delay and the worry of the door condition"
Pros: "We arrived early."
