It’s different compared to Southwest flights. Comfortable seating. Nice staff. Drinks and coffee free.
Sat on ground at Lax for 40 min after landing because some one was at our gate. After a 3 1/2 hour flight it sucks to just sit there and wait for no reason that the pilot could give us. So much for ever getting out of the airport on time.
The flight crew was friendly, and I was given an exit row window seat on a basic economy fare. Delta prioritizes SkyMiles cardholders, and that's much appreciated.
Everything was great until landed and had to wait 25 minutes to get into our gate! Can’t think of a good excuse for that on such a late, cross-country flight. Plenty of prep time!
Cons: "The pilot take off, navigation in the air, and landing were horrible ."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"
Pros: "Good flight, got home early."
Cons: "Hand out headphones, my phone doesn’t have compatibility."
Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "They were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing I was at my best on the best airline and crew"
Pros: "At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!"
Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."
Cons: "Leg room was lacking."
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "Got me there Safely"
Cons: "Couldn’t understand announcements... at all! By flight attendant or pilot"
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Pros: "Cabin service was decent"
Cons: "Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time."
Cons: "knees were jammed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
Pros: "Great services ce."
Pros: "The Gate Agents were excellent and very helpful with accommodating our family traveling with an infant and a six year old."
Cons: "The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance."
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late because the gate was understaffed. During the flight, the crew told us they couldn’t serve us because of turbulence, but then served first class."
Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Pros: "Nice crew members always polite and courteous.maybe over polite if anything. Australians don't require subservient service deliverers. The constant "your very welcome" regardless of the service and response to that delivery is off-putting to me. But al in all pretty good in most areas."
Cons: "ON ticketing at New Orleans I wasn't allocated a seat number. At the gate shortly prior to boarding I needed to attend the desk for that allocation. I was also not told which Terminal the plane would go to in LAX and which terminal the connecting flight would be leaving from. They were not sure! Consequently I floundered around at LAX wasting time and bothering people for information that should have been known to me. The security checks are over the top and inconsistent in the US."
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. Although the flight was several hours late the crew and staff were very professional and apologetic. The alerts were accurate and timely. Once we were in flight I was extremely please with the ride. Thanks to the captain and crew my granddaughter and I made it home safely."
Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"
Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Cons: "No power outlets, back of the plane is really loud, overhead bins suck"
Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"
Pros: "Free pretzels and drink"
Cons: "Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."
Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Pros: "Meg, our stewardess came out to tell us there would not be any coffee on a 6 AM flight and that we had time to get coffee, if needed. She kept us informed of flight delays, helpful with my bags."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be done, but due to construction at the airport, waited on tarmac for an hour before we could get to a gate, then they had problems with the ramp and that had to be addressed. But pilot was very good about keeping us informed on delays and he was as frustrated as we were."
Cons: "It was a great flight. We got there earlier then arrive time. Thank You"
Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Prior arriving flight was late yet this crew got us all boarded in record time and we landed ahead of original schedule. This new thing of using your own device to watch the available shows and movies is not cooperative with Apple devices. My boyfriend’s android phone was fine.
Let us sit in empty bilk head seats
The delay could have been shorter. Rough traveling late at night with an infant and then a delay.
Pros: "Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "It was my first time flying and the attendants were very nice and cordial on flight. I would love to fly again but next time with my children for a vacay."
Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "Very abrupt service. Not much room."
Cons: "Horrible experience!!"
Pros: "Flight attendant Odette was exceptionally professional and pleasant, moreso than any other AA crew in recent memory."
Cons: "It took a long time before we received an explanation of why we were delayed in takeoff and during that time the smell of jet fuel filled the cabin."
Cons: "I was asked to move from the front of the plane to the second to last row without a thank you or any kind of appreciation..."
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."
Cons: "Luggage lost never return"
Cons: "The chairs can be more comfortable."
Cons: "There was room for my carry on, although they said it was full and cheked it"
Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "I was able to finish a movie I started on a different flight and found an additional enjoyable movie to watch."
Cons: "The airplane was uncomfortably hot. The flight attendant apologized and said it would cool off at cruising altitude. It never cooled off. The flight was full and very crowded. I was in the last boarding group even though my seat was in row 17. They required me to check my carryon due to space."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and seat were comfy"
Cons: "I know that thing can happened but this flight was delayed an hour and half"
Pros: "I think crew tried to make the best of the bad situation. Got to Atlanta faster than scheduled flight time and they were sympathetic. Don't really know about much else, as I slept the whole flight."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay really cost us. Left Rome at 2:30 pm instead of 11:30 am, so missed 6:40 pm flight to Atlanta (so much for the 3 1/2 hour layover we were supposed to have). When we landed in Philadelphia, sat on runway for 45 minutes, waiting for gate. Next flight was supposed to leave at 8:40, took off at midnight."
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Cons: "Great flight great crew. Only issue was something was wrong with the entertainment system on my seat. Never worked"

Cons: "Food. I didn’t like my seat, was uncomfortable."
Pros: "the Bowing 787 was wonderful"

Pros: "Boarding has been fast, food and entertainment were very good."
Pros: "Excellent experience despite short weather delay. Outstanding flight crew"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "Plane was nice, seemed fairly new. There were two outlets for my row installed on the supports of the row of seats in front of us. Looked like it was made for plugs from a number of countries. Pretty nice feature. Headrests has an adjustable pillow that you could use to cradle your head for sleep. Didn’t use but seemed interesting."
Cons: "Seats too narrow. There weren’t especially narrow. In fact, I’m sure I’ve sat in narrower ones. This is just a feature of every economy seat I suppose, but it’s still a negative. O"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "SFO employee told me wrong gate as gate number changed. Missed flight. Layover in Chicago delayed 3.5 hours."
Cons: "A hot breakfast would have been nice."
Cons: "For an international flight it was very cramped seating - much worse than the connecting domestic flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 35 minutes. No reason given."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment, crew was very nice, I had no problems when boarding and dinner was fine."
Cons: "Breakfast was lacking, I did not enjoy anything I was given. A hot breakfast would be very nice or even bread with butter would have been a nice option."
Pros: "Efficient, really nice crew and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "being crammed into a sardine can, really loud plane. The seats are rocks!"
Pros: "I love the fact I've flown with American Airlines 4 times over the last month and have not had any issues, delays or even an unfriendly face no matter the time or airport!"
Pros: "Narrow aisle and seating. Attendant looking at his phone the entire time we were getting ready to take off as well during taxiing and takeoff. Unbelievable!"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."
Cons: "Servicio a bordo; un sandwiche viejo y agua!"
Pros: "Nothing except leaving American"
Cons: "Changed to a smaller plane from Chicago to Dublin Paid extra for seats on original and didn't get them Flight late because of catering difficulties"
Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."
Pros: "Everything went fairly seamlessly despite having a pacted plane."
Pros: "The gentleman at the departure desk was first rate. Polite and accommodating he was just what you would expect from an airline. Especially American Airlines. The crew was the same and I was happy to have decided to use AA."
Cons: "The departure was delayed approximately an hour."
Cons: "I purchased my flight at 5am the morning to fly out at 930 to be in ucsonbe for 12a. And when i make it to the gate they tell me im a no go. Thant my paymenr was not process but yet i never got an email or call saying different. I recived my boarding pass and my payment was pending!!

Pluse getting two shuttles to get onto ur flight is ridiculous!!!"
