Cons: "There was some type of mechanical or electric issue that delayed our flight by 30 minutes or so, which is unwelcome for a flight that late at night."
Cons: "Older plane so the entertainment system was dated and the touch screen didn’t work for me in certain areas, but otherwise it was a great flight. Efficient customs in Minneapolis as well!"
Cons: "Not delayed"
Cons: "More choices for the meal menu"
Pros: "I never boarding this flight."
Cons: "Better communication skills."
Cons: "Delta Comfort isn’t so comfortable. Seats are too skinny."
Cons: "The website could work for starters"
Cons: "It was hot"
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late."
Pros: "Met expectations; except for treatment of an oversized passanger, which turned out good in the end."
Pros: "Clean plane. Excellent service flt DL0295 our flight attendant (Nancy, sorry didn’t get her last name) was fantastic."
Pros: "The cookies and soda was good and staff was exceptional. Instead of cheezits, chips would be better"
Cons: "Instead of cheezits, please upgrade to chips"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "low passengers, OK crew"
Cons: "crew was a bit cold, but OK"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"
Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. No issues. Friendly staff. We had to fill out customs declaration forms but didn’t have a pen. We asked stewardess for a pen and they didn’t have any left. She said to borrow from a neighbor which I thought was rude. We don’t know our neighbors. If a flight requires filling out a form, they should provide enough pens to do so."
Cons: "Not enough pens"
Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The hand-me-down Southwest boarding group gates. The automated ticket readers. The whole de-personalization."

Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."
Pros: "At least the flight wasn't cancelled?"
Cons: "Five minutes before the scheduled boarding time, it was announced the flight was delayed by 1 hour 25 minutes. I am almost certain this was not weather-related, according to flight trackers. I understand that weather delays are essentially out of airlines' hands. However, if the delay is caused for other reasons like "mechanical issues", or any other errors or miscommunications within the airline itself, then they should be held liable. My time is worth money, so any delays not weather-related should result in a reasonable refund based on the duration of the delay. An apology doesn't placate customers' frustration and inconvenience due to delays."
Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"
Pros: "ATL based crew was great. Exit row extra room as promised"
Cons: "Cheese snack purchased was not up to par. Grapes soft, almonds mealy and cheese dried out. Disappointing. New faster Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. Down for long stretches."
Cons: "My registered luggage was sent LAX->MDE and i had a short change in MEX. Running out of the LAX->MEX plane, the crew the said: "don't forget to pick up your luggage".. and then all went pairshaped. One member of MEX staff claimed the baggage is going directly to destination, another said that it won't and i need to pick it up myself and do god knows what with it. LAX->MEX flight delayed by 30mins, 1hr change time. Everybody relaxed just me loosing all my boozy contraband as i had no choice but to put my registered luggage thru security."
Pros: "All wonderful."

Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "On a one hour trip no much to say, understandably no food or bererage service. Got me from here to there quickly. thanks You!"
Cons: "What I didn't like was two idiots behind me that talked loudly for the whole flight and it being a late flight it would have been good to catch a nap. Nothing to do with the flight but really they talked for the whole time they were sitting across the aisle from each other."
Pros: "movies and food"
Cons: "CDG airport is the worst!!!"
Pros: "The best stewardesses in the industry."
Cons: "Seat back entertainment was outdated and non functional. Drinks were served but not a pretzel or peanut to be seen unless you were in first class."

Cons: "No complaints here"

Pros: "First of I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Parnel at JFK airport. He was such a big help. And his customer service was excellent."
Pros: "Lisa I. was one of the best flight attendants I have ever observed. She enjoys being on the airplane with people who need help, comfort, to complain about anything. She was all over the airplane and refused a tip when I tried to insist she accept it. She said, “I have been doing this for a long time, I am tipped by seeing passengers having a pleasant flight.” I had goosebumps and the two women to my left and right were also impressed by her professionalism. I pray that Lisa is working on my flight home!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing, even with 30 to 45 MPH winds, the plane was gentle. The passenger next to me was scared. Lisa said to let her know if she needed anything, the woman was fine the whole flight. Lisa came by with extra snacks and she smiled and said she was doing well!"
Cons: "Both female flight attendants were very rude and pushy, the male was the only pleasant person. Also the in flight entertainment didn’t work half the time."
Cons: "When there’s a 30 minute delay on the tarmac, explain why."
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight time, availability on short notice"
Cons: "Delayed, no communication, delayed at boarding, sat at arrival with no gate."
Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Cons: "Over booked flight"
Cons: "Air conditioning wa not working. We were in a hub why wasn't the plane switched."
Pros: "I got there in one piece."
Cons: "More legroom"
Cons: "Not gotten cancelled on August 18 and delayed for 24 hours with no compensation for hotel we had to get. Then would be nice to not get delayed 4 times on today’s flight arriving home at 2 in the morning on a day we HAVE to go to work because we already are in trouble for missing previous day."
Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"
Cons: "Flight time was changed twice"
Cons: "The airline"
Cons: "Flight was fine. Wanted to change ticket to allow more connection time between DCA and JFK and the first two sales representative sucked. I considered never flying American again. On board crew was great."
Cons: "They announced there would be inflight WiFi, but they never turned it on."
Pros: "I loved the movie options, It really made it a great experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "The help on getting on the plane and the pleasant staff on the flight"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Due to technical error my flight delayed and I missed my flight to Hyd from London. I was traveling on personal medical emergency and missed an important surgery of my mother."
Pros: "Roomy leg room"
Cons: "Plane to start,delay loading,dlaying taking off.almost hour late arriving."
Pros: "I like the ability to stream movies and TV to my device. The seating was also comfortable the head rests are a lifesaver."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Pros: "For an inflated price, I was able to get decent leg room. The flight was on time."
Cons: "Seat comfort was minimal. Gets worse year after year. Fewer comforts & perks for the same price."
Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"
Pros: "Nice staff, on time"
Cons: "The cabin was extremely hot, taxi time and time sitting in the plane took way to long. Air flow was extremely limited"

Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."
Pros: "Free upgrade to domestic first class was awesome."
Cons: "Food was meh."
Pros: "Movie options"
Cons: "2 hour delay was inconvenient. Like why?"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "Pulled from get on time. Short hold on runway. Easy landing."
Cons: "Still arriving in Washington where we have no gate. Being on time stinks because you still sit on runway. AT the destination. I would focus on quicker turn around and less accommodation of highly variable flight times in tight NE corridor"
Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Cons: "Only one plane really gave me a bad experience. The plane was pretty old and cramped and the crew was very rude. Maybe they were having a bad day or didn't want to be in the old plane either, but their performance was bad. One of the attendants, I think his name was Juju, asked me is a soft voice if I would like a drink. With the engines roaring in the background I thought he asked have you been served a drink? I responded "No, I have not." And he started off serving everyone else. I had to call him and asked if he was skipping me and he replied "I asked you if you wanted a drink and you said No!" I explained the engines were loud and I mistaken his words and with an attitude he served me a drink. For the whole 9hr flight I avoided him at all cost and just responded to the other attendants. The other attendants seemed annoyed and would roll their eyes or make a face when people would try to pass them on the aisle, but I in their defense, they were moving a large cart in a small aisle. Passengers should have waited until the aisle was clear before moving. That was my only issue. The next flight was better with no problems."
Cons: "Baggage took 1 hour after arrival1"
Pros: "Actually coming home was great. Thank you"
Cons: "Going to Cancun. From Boise sucked. Are flight from Boise sucked we we're 4 to 5 hours late due to the gas contamination in Boise and we weren't informed until a hour + after from the time our flight was suppose to go out. We weren't very happy. They new the night prior, so we could have came to the airport 3 hours later and been just fine. Which also made us miss the connecting flight"
Pros: "Other than a 2 hour delay due to a mechanical issue (identified after everyone boarded) the flight was ok. No electical connections for equipment. That would be an improvement. Also, out of a lot of meals that people request, and that was at the beginning of service in the premium seats."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, clean passenger lounge and plane cabin"
Cons: "Wish standard seating allowed for more width, better way to avoid reclined seat in front"
Pros: "I don't normally travel long distances, but when I do I fly with American Airlines. I found a round trip from Chicago to Los Angeles for only 170 dollars. I had an overall excellent experience. Thanks for the great hospitality."
Pros: "There was entertainment on the flight"
Cons: "The seats are TOO DAMN SMALL!!!!"
Cons: "American canceled my original itinerary on direct flight to Los Angeles and put me on a flight to Dallas, Dallas to LA, and charged me for the change. After 8 hour delay at airport (boarding plane, on the runway) they turned us around and flight was delayed to the next day. I luckily got a direct on United and will avoid American at all costs."
Pros: "I fainted on my flight and everyone was really nice and helpful to make sure I was okay."
Cons: "America Airlines...worst service and just a horrible experience"
Pros: "JoMarie was very helpful at LGB. And we eventually arrived at our destination."
Cons: "This was a horrible travel experience, the worst I have ever known. My uncle had died, so I had to search for the soonest and most economical flight in order to attend the funeral. Traveling with me was my aunt (his ex wife) and my cousin (his only daughter). Our initial flight was delayed 'due to mechanical issues' and they said we weren't going to make our connection in Phoenix. So they had to reroute the whole trip, which took about half an hour because all of the flights were full. So instead of flying from LGB - PHX - CLT - CAE and arriving Saturday night, we ended up departing from LAX (which we specifically were trying to avoid) almost 9 hours later. From there to DEN - CLT - GSP arriving Sunday morning. Because of this I had to contact the hotel and let them know that we weren't going to check-in until the next day, but I still ended up having to pay for Saturday night. Then, I had to cancel the rental car and make a new reservation to pick it up at GSP and return at CAE since the hotel was close to CAE, plus the return flight was through CAE. Also, wifi was an additional cost (which we didn't use because of this), the snacks were pitiful, and the seats were very narrow and uncomfortable. I have flown with JetBlue in the past, but on this occasion, last minute flights to South Carolina were prohibitively expensive. That being said, if I had known how bad the experience with American was going to be, I would have gladly paid literally double the price for the JetBlue tickets. And in the future, I will be flying exclusively with JetBlue no matter what the cost."
Cons: "flight has been cancelled, airline staff gave me hotel vouchers which the hotel would NOT honor, I went back and forth twice because those two hotels would not accomodate american airline passenger vouchers, I end up calling a friend to pick up at the airport she has to drive for an hour just to pick me up, I regret buying a ticket in american airline"
