Pros: "low passengers, OK crew"
Cons: "crew was a bit cold, but OK"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"

Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."

Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."
Pros: "great crew!"
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Easy no hassle check in and board."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. Thank you!"
Pros: "Seats seem to get smaller but overall a good experience"
Cons: "Seat room"
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Cons: "The airport experience was horrible. American Airlines did not have enough personnel on duty to process all the waiting passengers."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "American airlines needs to improve their inter hub options"
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Cons: "Boarding at Heathrow is horribly inefficient."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, and pretzels are gross"
Pros: "Nice plane and entertainment"
Cons: "Booked flight through British air for a reason. Didn’t anticipate American Airlines being used for our flights. The Flight was also delayed but it was never explained why despite dozens of questions from passengers. This caused a missed connection flight and forced us to stay overnight in Chicago with nothing but a $12 food voucher. When we tried t ask what other options were, American Airlines personal offered no sympathy and said the best we would get is the food vouchers and we should be grateful. No other travel reimbursement or vouchers were offered other than a replacement flight. Overall it was a huge inconvenience and caused numerous other expenditures for us."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Small seats."
Cons: "Fast flight"
Pros: "Boarding was on time, and landing was smooth."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."
Pros: "This trip was short and sweet.. Uneventful +Praise God!"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Movies selection"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Delayed flight, multiple gate changes"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I purchased my tickets, American decided it would be reasonable to separate my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and myself which I was notified of only when I asked the customer service agent over the phone prior to our flight. She explained that she was unable to do anything about it. I then called American during my trip and spoke with another agent who said it was out of her hands as well and to take it up with an agent at the desk at the airport. When I checked in online, I was able to change our seats myself which was nothing that either agent even suggested. The lack of ability of these agents on the phone to help two parents traveling internationally with a toddler was unbelievable. American has terrible customer service."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo at the check in desk. Our flight was delayed for 2 hours but the friendly staff made it easier to deal with the delay!"
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr before my flight and they wouldn't check me in. I believe they overbook the flight and turn customer down. They even gave me hard time during rebooking us. Never again."
Pros: "The flight was equal to AA service I have had on a regular basis."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Full flight, crew worked timely"
Pros: "All good, except poor prep on food"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was quick. Food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment on a cross Atlantic flight was not family friendly. Playing 'Dark Knight Rises' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' while my 6 year old is on the flight is not appropriate. While I didn't let him listen to the program, he could still watch violent scenes I would not allow at home. There are plenty of family friendly good quality PG or G rated movies that appeal to everyone. Would it be too hard to get individual screens in 2017?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed by almost three hours due to weather in Chicago, the crew was very helpful and the pilot kept us informed about the updates that he was receiving."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Pros: "They were absolutely fantastic on checking on me, food, service, flight in general. Would recommend to anyone!!!"
Cons: "LONG LINES at passport check, LONGER LINES after we picked up the luggage. There were only two people working after the luggage pickup for hundreds of passengers. People were fighting and yelling and it was an awful experience. We then had to go through SECURITY AGAIN to get to our transfer plane. Our plane was late, otherwise it would have been very tight schedule."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All well"
Pros: "What I enjoyed about this flight is that I eventually made it to Chicago."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times - blamed on Chicago ATC. The food offered was not suitable for First Class - there was chicken and vegetarian option. The FA was rather slow in serving and clearing trays. She was not interested in going around and asking for refills - when I inquired about it at dessert time, she didn't come back for 15 minutes and I had to ring the call button - she informed me they didn't have my drink of choice, so it was OK for her not to come back and tell me that. Service was terrible in First Class. American should seriously do something about that."
Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Chicago went well. We left on time and arrived a little earlier than expected. I was worried about the weather delaying our flight once we go to Chicago but we encounter different problems. as I will explain next."
Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"
Cons: "We fly from London to Dallas and Dallas to Albuquerque but we miss our connecting flight because of the delay leaving London and because of weather. So we got mid sets from Dallas to Albuquerque."
Cons: "Would at least like a choice of a snack instead of cookies I don't care for."
Cons: "The fact that people carry-on luggage that exceeds the max requirements for carry on luggage so they can avoid the checked luggage fee. It's a disgrace. It time to live by your rules, the same for everyone. I had to be rebooked out a different airport as PGV was flooded. I was seated in 21F which does not recline. AA cancelled my flight out of PGV, a better seat would have been nice since I had to drive an hour to EWN whereas I was staying only 10 mins from PGV."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "A little crowded"
Pros: "After traveling on a budget airline to Las Vegas and having a horrific experience, I couldn't have been more pleased with the comfort and cleanliness of the aircraft as well as the friendliness of the flight crew!"
Cons: "The plane was pretty chilly and I was FREEZING, but when I asked for a blanket they told me they only hand them out to the first-class passengers. In addition, they did forget to download our in-flight movie, but we all make mistakes :)"
Pros: "It was five star all the way."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, crew was friendly"
