Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. We even arrived a little early in Rochester."

Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"
Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."
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."

Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."
Pros: "Delta is the best--I sat in a comfy seat (middle seat at that) and watched 3 movies during my flight. Couldn't be better!"
Cons: "Flight overbooked and the gate paid no attention to how many bags were being brought onboard. Was forced to check my carry on. I hope it arrived."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."
Cons: "Due to weather patterns, we sat on the runway for 3 hours waiting to take off. There was approx. 50+ planes ahead of us. I know this because I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot on his way home. About 2 hours in, there was 30 planes left to take off, and then us. They air traffic control people were only letting off one plane per minute which is what was holding us. THEN after the 3 hours on the runway, our crew timed out and the brought us back to gate saying we were not taking off. At the gate, they informed us the flight was not 'cancelled' but 'delayed' to the following morning. I/m not sure how a 16 hour difference is considered 'delayed', but I digress. All Delta reps had NO idea the time of the new flight the following morning and told us all to just 'keep checking the app'. Now, fortunately for me I live in Brooklyn and could just go home. But what about everyone who was at LGA as a layover? I heard from multiple passengers they had to spend the night in a hotel, that Delta did not pay for. We finally got notice the new flight was scheduled for 9:30AM, which they AGAIN delayed until 11:30AM. Many people did not get the second change, and were already at LGA for the 9:30AM flight. To say Delta's handling of this was poor is an understatement. We knew when we got on that plane the crew was going to time out. Again, I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot who told me to 'get comfy, we're gonna be here awhile' the minute I sat down. Delta should have given us a fresh crew, or had a backup one prepared. I understand the weather is out of there control, and I understand you can't have a tired crew piloting an airplane, but there are other ways to have us take off remotely on schedule."
Pros: "They did fly.... finally"
Cons: "Missed connection to Bangor. Had to overnight in NYC. Substituted smaller plane for this transcontinental flight."
Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and apologetic."
Cons: "Having two planes with mechanical trouble. Putting our luggage on the wrong plane. It is 1:50 am as I write this. I should be home in bed."
Cons: "We did not board at the scheduled time, although I believe we arrived on time. The crew was demeaning and singled out individuals who were causing the aircraft to not move. It was in a very pretentious manner, not like southwest personnel who have similar antics but with a playful tone. The plane is a small one where bags don't fit overhead and many head bumps occur. We arrived fine which mean the flight was successful but it was not very enjoyable."
Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "Only the crew was nice!"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Having to go to a different line to pay for a heavy bag"
Pros: "The beverage selection was good and entertainment was good - no delays and early arrivals - boarding was easy and well managed"
Cons: "Aisle seat Middle Row D, Economy class, very little leg room- 175cm/5’9” - not enough knee space to stretch out without burying your knees into the seat in front- dinner meal was good - snack was subpar - no replacements for snack if you didn’t like your 1st choice - didn’t have that problem but a woman 1 aisle up was rudely addressed by the flight attendant for asking if she could discard her sandwich in exchange for Ramen- the same attendant even loudly told another attendant not to girl this poor lady some noodles - they cost $1 at the store - don’t know why she was holding out and making a scene over Ramen"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Friendky,.; Had the holiday spirit!"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and courteous for the time we were on the plane delayed."
Cons: "Boarding the passengers before the aircraft was actually ready to take off was not pleasant."
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: "Crew was fine but you can’t hear anything they are saying over intercom"
Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"
Cons: "Our flight from Dublin was delayed 2-1/2 hours. So we missed our connecting flight to SJC. Instead of flying back at 5:15 PM we flew back at 8:13 PM. But that flight didn’t leave until 9:00 PM. They rerouted us to fly into SFO which is about 1-1/2 hours further than SJC from our house. Not good!"
Cons: "The flight was full. We waited for wheelchair assistance that never arrived until we got to the gate for boarding, after already doing a 20 minute walk to the gate. The crew was snippy and unfriendly. Two lavatories were out of order from the get-go which should have been detected before leaving."
Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"
Cons: "Seat number is crazy. ACDF. How about ABCD..."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."

Pros: "Seat very small"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Food - What can I say about pretzels except "Okay"?!"
Cons: "I didn’t like to have 4 stops and so many hours of layover between all of my trips I will never ever buy a trip with a travel agency it is so complicated to make a change and they want to charge you about 5,000 dollars for a change! awfull!!! waitress from miami to london was not so nice."
Cons: "I was in such pain by the time I left this flight, the seats were horrible."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed somewhat by a service door not completely latched. The plan returned to get it closed, then was promptly airborne. After the delays, the flight actually made it to our destination by our scheduled arrival time."
Cons: "The airline charged me $50 for my carry on even though they told me I could hate check it earlier. Apparently they changed their mind and I am $50 poorer. This is after being a loyal American card member for over 10 years. BS."
Cons: "Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years."
Pros: "The cabin crew bent over backwards to help."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, the boarding was super quick and the whole flight was great and comfortable. Friendly crew members. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I paid for a more comfortable seat around US200 (16L) the day prior the flight, main cabin window seat with more space.They changed planes I guess and row 16 was gone so the assigned me another one on main cabin aswell with more space (15J) but an aisle, which I hate and that was the reason why I paid for a window seat in the first place. No effort to get me a window seat within main cabin when I claimed, nor reasonable explanation on why they did the changed."
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."
Cons: "Our connecting flight was late and they next flight left 5min early?! WTF! We missed the flight by 3min. 10 other people missed the flight too. Now our whole day is blown waiting nearly 6hrs for next flight."
Cons: "BA redirected online check in to AA and seats were available early, not 24 hrs before flight, what is different seat policy from BA. I didn't know that and I was late to find 2 seats besides for me and my family member."
Pros: "Good flight attendant. Flight landed earlier than anticipated."
Cons: "They nearly took my carry on with the other checked bags when leaving the flight. It clearly had a carry on tag. Unforced error!"

Cons: "Wait time to board"
Pros: "The crew was excellent people, very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "American airlines is the only airline without TV screens in each seat. Furthermore, the control in my seat was not working."

Pros: "Crew was very nice."

Pros: "plenty of leg room. very little turbulence. fight staff was very professional. staff was very responsive to assist me in finding my passport which I had left on the plane after I had left the plane and gotten to my connecting flight."

Cons: "I had problems with my reservation. Somehow my last name was typed wrong on the sistem and they couldn't fixed it at the moment i was doing my check in. I had to purchased another ticket otherwise i was going to missed my flight. Very disappointed with that airline. It was my second time traveling with them and definitely my last one."
Cons: "One miserable pack of coffee cookies for $700+ ticket. I don't expect a 3 course meal on a 3 hour flight but seriously a pack of cookies? Too bad if one follows a gluten free diet."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "It was a reminder again why I never fly United"

Cons: "Our seta were separated by two rows."
Pros: "That i made it home"
Cons: "This flight is always late. And the original arrival time is late to start with."
Cons: "After a three hour layover we were all set to board our jet when we were told that there were issues and would be delayed. After 2 hours they boarded us on an old propeller plane that was loud and uncomfortable. A man was forced to move from his seat in the front of the plane to the back because of weight balancing problems."
Cons: "Departure was delayed. No explanation. The boarding area is crowded and confusing. The plane's bins were too small for roller boards so passengers had to carry bags outdoors in snow and terrible wind, to get them loaded. The Newark airport where the plane landed was miserable! Departure from Newark was worse than landing if that could be possible! Awful!"
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Pros: "Everything went fine and they sorted out a spot for me to sit even though the flight was overbooked"
Cons: "Crabby flight attendants"
Cons: "Loaded us all on the plane stowed our luggage all belted in they then announced a few minutes later to get off the plane because the pilot was still in Burlington Vermont and take luggage with us, including red tag luggage. Never should have loaded us when pilot not yet arrived. Plenty of irate customers."
Pros: "The staff were good."
Cons: "I didn't like how we left more than two hours late. United always pulls this kind of thing. The flight was overbooked, so we weren't going anywhere until people volunteered to take later flights. To allow enough time for someone to volunteer, aircraft maintenance was 'required', a scenario I have seen on a few other United flights. Honestly, I will never fly United again and am cancelling my future flights in favor of taking the train instead. It takes eight hours instead of a theoretical 1.5 hours, but at least it is reliable and not much worse than the ACTUAL time it takes to fly United. Worst airline ever. Barf."
Cons: "Not even beverage service. Water only"
Pros: "I liked that the crew tried their best to make sure that everyone was happy. Key word was tried"
Cons: "Everything almost we was delayed by almost 3 hours. Crew members kept giving us false hope for no reason"

Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"
Pros: "Tsa stopped all in my party for private screening to run us very late.."
Cons: "4 hour delay out of DC"
Pros: "It was fine for the most part. No frills, quick flight."
Cons: "With a tight connection, they should really at least sell snack boxes on these quick flights. By the time we arrived in ROC, all the restaurants were closed. Hungry humans."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was neither WiFi nor in flight entertainment available which made the entire flight a drag"
Pros: "The staff were very professional yet friendly"
Pros: "There was more complimentary snacks available."

Pros: "On time Fast Snoith"
Cons: "Seat was hell Boarding !!!!! The terminal was hot old confusing Even if local think about the wonderful new bus terminals that are being built Tech could go s long way Use apos to highlight boarding ligistics Location and direction sids Etc etc etc Dulles gets an F here"
Pros: "The entire duration of the flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The temperature was incredibly hot."
Pros: "boarding and only because i have premier 1k"
Cons: "very uncomfortable flight in spite of extra leg room seat cushions hard for someone with back problems"
Cons: "Flight updates were terrible, non existent. The people by the gate were not helpful. My daughter had to check online for updates.Customer service over the phone was poor as well. No one knew what time the plane would board,etc. Terrible overall experience. Need to improve on communication with passengers."
Pros: "Your pilots actually landed us 20 minutes early in Bozeman so great on them as well. I flew from Charlotte at 4:22 to Denver and left for Bozeman at 6:50 pm, all flight attendants were very pleasant as well."
Pros: "Was a good flight, quick and direct. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Too many people crammed into the space; same as most other flights though."
Cons: "Crew was late & delayed boarding."
Pros: "Crew was able to switch my seat so I was able to board early and have a seat where I could stretch my bad foot."
