Paying extra for comfort plus was not worth it. Our seats had walls between them instead of arm rests that could move which did not make it comfortable for our wide bodies.
It’s different compared to Southwest flights. Comfortable seating. Nice staff. Drinks and coffee free.
Crew was rude, and continued to bang into me as they passed and ram the cart into my seat.
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.
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: "Crew lady serving back of plane was very sweet and I enjoyed her serving us"
Cons: "Bathrooms were filthy, tray tables were sticky Seats were sunken in and uncomfortable Noisy air vent No entertainment system"
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: "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."
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."
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"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "It was crowded and cramped."
Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
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."
Pros: "It was actually a flight from new Orleans to Detroit. Seats were assigned at the gate for myself and many others. It seemed like the gate agent didn't care where she assigned guests who were travelling together as several people were not able to sit with their travel companion. Once I was on the plane I however switched with someone to allow them to sit next to their companion and put me closers to mine. Everything else went smoothly."
At least a snack or a drink
Pros: "empty plane"
Pros: "Yes and Yes"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
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."

Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Plane also delayed"

Pros: "The crew was amazing,attentive and courteous."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure. Everyone was budding the lines not well organized."

Cons: "Flight was very late"
Pros: "The most cramped seats ever"
Cons: "If I actually made my connection. Delayed flight out of Boston"
Cons: "maintenance. We left late due to a maintenance issue. Once the flight attendant notification alarm went off for 15 minutes."
Cons: "Delayed and had to fly around when getting to Newark. Supposed to land at 11:30 and it’s 1:40am and not even off the plane. Never flying American again."
Pros: "Nothing - except getting my seat upgraded from the 'claustrophobic zone'."
Cons: "Having to wait 5 hours for the flight as my FRA to DFW flight arrived late. I had been up over 26 hours already and was struggling to stay awake prior to the flight. (My day didn't end until I'd been up more than 32 hours.) Crew from the late arriving flight should have announced the connecting flight delay well before landing at DFW. The flight should have been held for 20 minutes, as it appeared that the majority of the passengers affected were able to clear customs and arrive at the gate in time. Headphone jack had a very poor connection. Plane was dirty."
Pros: "Deplaning in White Plains"
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. So this time, I gave up and boarded with the last group. No prior warning was given that this plane would not allow for carry on luggage in overhead bins. Further were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies."
Pros: "the plane was newer"
Cons: "the very long delay!!!"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "The gate area was way too crowded. No seats available for over three gates over, and then the announcement for boarding was made with a very lousy microphone...."
Pros: "AA provided free snacks and drinks at boarding gate. Courteous staff."
Cons: "Flight was on and off regarding time of departure. Received at least three alerts that the plane was delayed 1/2 hr then on time then delayed. We had to take a bus to the plane and sat on tarmac for several minutes until our flight disembarked."
Cons: "Delayed more than once missed connecting flight and didn’t put me up in a hotel for the night"
Pros: "Boarding at Springfield was fast and simple. The check-in agent were friendly and efficient. I especially appreciated that the flight arrived early into Dallas. I had a little more time to find lunch before my next flight."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after being delayed 3 times"
Cons: "Boarding was poorly set up."
Pros: "I travel a great deal and this service was an hour from my home. Now I have to travel 2.5 hours 1-2 times a week. So sad. I am a dedicated AA customer"
Cons: "I am soo sad they are discontinuing service"
Cons: "Need to serve more water"
Pros: "Comfortable and wide seats in coach - as wide as or wider than my usual airline. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. I had bad experiences with American in the past, but this one was surprisingly pleasant."
Cons: "No free entertainment or meals."
Cons: "A hot breakfast would have been nice."
Pros: "Flight crew had a great sense of humor - they were extra friendly while boarding as well, made traveling with AA the best! Boarding was delayed due to previous flight but our pilot even managed to get us to Denver early! Wish I could have this crew everywhere I go!"
Pros: "Boarding in London was smooth, we arrived early. New plane, good seats for extra $$."
Cons: "Food could be better, even on an international flight. Crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Starting with seat selection with an agent, every step of the trip was handled with efficiency and professionalism. The cabin crew saw to my needs and was watchful of each passenger. Communication was provided as needed, food, drink, snacks as well as comfort dispensed smoothly."
Cons: "The delay with our flight leaving Rome was tied to a delay at JFK the evening before, so although there was nothing to be done at the Rome end, it was inconvenient. Also, because we needed to make a connection in New York, this set the stage for delays on the last leg of our journey"
Cons: "COULDN'T GET ON THE SECOND LEG BECAUSE DIDN'T MAKE THE FIRST LEG"
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "There was a crew member Dario, from Lima to Buenos Aires that was super nice."
Cons: "The ticket was printed as Avianca trans to American Airlines. That was wrong. The ticket was for Avianca and I went to American and I lost a lot of time. Then the line was long and took me for ever to check in"
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Jet bridge was broken and needed repair. Delayed departure."
Cons: "The flight left almost 6 hours late, and the delay was not directly due to weather. Another flight from and to the same airports left as scheduled 3 hours before this one finally left."
Pros: "Fantastic customer service - from lounge to arrival gate. Unlike BA this airline does recognize its frequent flyers and upgrades us often to business. I fly a lot - Executive Platinum - and this makes a huge difference."
Cons: "My connecting flight LHR to AMS was on BA and they really droped the ball compared to AA."
Cons: "Being led to pay to select seats on flight that was only 50% full"
Pros: "Cheap. Easy. Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Had to be rebooked due to safety issue on my departing flight and lost my connection in Washington DC. Hours of sitting."

Cons: "Plane delayed, had to switch to new plane which was after two hours"

Everyone was friendly and helpful.
Pros: "Airport staff was amazing, helping us out with seats considering one of us was needing assistance due to health condition"
Pros: "Wonderful flight.... great crew!"
Cons: "I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again"
Cons: "Not being stuck in Houston for 7 hours"
Pros: "7 hours added to trip due to poor management of missed flight in Brussels"
Cons: "United needs to do a better job of dealing with missed flights. Missed flights happen, but over an hour in various lines because they couldn’t manage relations with Brussels Air, to say nothing of not realizing there was no chance of making the flight"
Cons: "The plan had to be maintained with no option for getting to my final destination on time."
Pros: "Easy stress free bording. Flight on time and on schedule."
Cons: "Had anightmare will complain to united diect"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and light hearted."
Cons: "There was no legroom on this flight, my knees were literally pushing up against the seat in front of me. I had to sit straight up and down to fit. It was by far the least comfortable flight I have ever experienced."
Pros: "The orderly fashion the airline boarded!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed making me miss my connecting flight and was not compensated for anything only a sorry"
Cons: "Outdated planes. Service sucked. No blankets. Delta for life!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "We weren't offered snacks. Plane was very hot. Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Quick and easy fight. Crew very nice"
Cons: "Flight was 3 1/2 hours delayed. Missed my original connection. Missed the second connection because (as the attendants told us) they were unable to get ANY flight information to inform the passengers of where their connecting flight was. They were also pretty snotty and acted like it was our fault that we might miss a flight. I'm now sitting in Houston for the final flight of the day."
Pros: "Everything was on time and fantastic. We got in 20 minutes early"
Pros: "It was smooth sailing. Flight was full but not totally uncomfortable"
Cons: "I did not have an assigned seat until I got to the gate. Having to pay for entertainment on flight"
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Pros: "Stewardess did allow me to check my coat bag"
Cons: "Sat in front of exit row. People in front of me can recline into my personal space I cannot recline pack. Typical united flight arrived slightly late. Then took over an hour to clean and prep plane for our flight. Almost every flight from United is late now. I booked this one 2 hours earlier hoping I could arrive before 10:30. You failed me even when playing it safe."
Cons: "Took too long to get baggage"
Cons: "Again all of it was poor"
Cons: "Not having a pilot. Being in new orleans airport for 8 hours before leaving due to no pilot Missing my original connection flightgetting back"
Pros: "The staff was always very helpful. I carry a saxophone and everyone was always very open to accommodating me, which I really appreciate! Also, great legroom, great pilots, positive attitude."
Cons: "The added fees for food and beverage were a little tough. I would understand if the flights were shorter, however we had several-hour delays in a time period from lunch through the middle of the night, and were not offered any sort of voucher or food item. Then my bag got lost (which I understand with the weather issues that caused delays), but it left me in a city with no clothes, very hungry, in an hour past public transportation hours. Which is not THEIR problem, but I would have definitely appreciated some assistance of some sort."
Pros: "Was able to change seats in order to sit with my wife."
Cons: "3 hour delay."
Pros: "very kind flight crew, no complaints coming back!"
Cons: "We did have one seemingly annoyed flight attendant on the way to NOLA from Chicago, and older woman. Seemed like every question we had was a burden. Everyone else was really nice, though."
Cons: "Delayed flight... Gate attendants were crabby and not very helpful. So sad"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "It would be great if those with connecting flights could choose their seat for both flights"
Cons: "United has a problem with its seat assignments. We were not given one on our connecting flight in Houston. That caused us to miss our flight. We were not given seat assignments on returning flights either, even though we we checked in 24 hours in advance. United 's terminal in Houston is very poor. I would not recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "Plane pushed away from gate a few minutes early bad was actually airborne two minutes after scheduled departure. Arrived early!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline at all"
Pros: "It was quick and the person I sat next was pretty cool."
Cons: "The flight personnel had bad attitudes. The seating was cramped and the wifi was expensive"
Cons: "The TSA at New Orleans airport was rude"
Cons: "Smooth flight, on time, safety procedures followed"
Cons: "The staff was rude, bored, and appeared to be bothered by any request that was made. The flight was oversold, luckily I was able to get a seat (like I had booked and planned for) but my flight was horribly long. I was stuck next to someone that was drenched in perfume, it was so bad it hurt my sinuses. Since the flight was oversold there were no seats where I could move. Not like the attendants would have helped me anyways. I will not fly United again if I can help it."
Pros: "That i got home safely."
Cons: "4 5 Hour delays accompanied by apologies with a $10 expired food vouchers."
Pros: "Couldn't have asked for more. Quick flight l. Got in early!"
Cons: "Flight was bad and it took extra 4 hours before another one was provided. My luggage was damaged."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable with more leg room than other airlines and we actually landed 18 min early! What to go United Airlines."
Pros: "Uhhh, kinda unsanitary"
Cons: "Could've been much cleaner."
Pros: "Row 10, extra couple of inches is far more civilized."
Cons: "Didn't have the United app downloaded in time, so couldn't use the WiFi. No alternative."
Pros: "What I like it was very peaceful flight overall the staff was excellent and communicated with everyone very well."
Cons: "I really don't have any dislikes about this flight"
Pros: "Good leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Horrible, rude service by one of the flight attendants. I was just asking for an extra glass of water. Cant believe they treat premier customers the way they do. TV did not work."
Pros: "The availability of free entertainment on the plane was a positive. The stewardess also was accommodating in giving me both a soda and water."
Cons: "We arrived 1 hour early to a line for checking bags that did not move for nearly 1 hour. There were staff behind the desk that were standing around on their phones and meanwhile there were lines longer than I have ever seen just waiting to be helped. The fact that check in etc was all in one place at the MSY is baffling. I paid ahead of time to check my bags but still had to wait in line behind people who had not even checked in for flights that appeared to be stopping in at least two destinations. Once we finally got to the counter, the staff member informed us that they were re-routing our trip. No apology was offered. When I conferred with my travel companion about the best option to re-route, the employee said "Sir I am speaking to you. Not that man." I tried to explain that this man was my travel companion who I needed to travel with because we were in-fact going to the same destination and had planned additional transportation together and that I needed to know if there was room for two people on this flight so that we could proceed onto our route together. After being interrogated about why my companion was not on my reservation, the employee told us that 12 people would not make the flight we were supposed to be on. She then took our bags (we have now been in line to check bags for almost 1.5 hours). Fast-forward to the return flight. We are supposed to depart at 7:15, but were delayed to 8pm, then 8:30, then back to 8pm, then to 8:25, then 8:40, then 9pm between the times of 11am and 8pm. Our trip to the airport that included two trains was significantly more stressful as these projected times were changed because we went from being on time to late to on time all within the span of an hour. The employees on the return flight were helpful in making up for the numerous delays but the confusion that seemed to hover over the company made me feel like nobody cared about whether we reached our destination."
Pros: "I liked crew as they treated me as good customer, thank you!"
Cons: "Their snack food I dont like it and little delayed"
Cons: "I bought two tickets two months ago and was not able to sit with my girlfriend on the return trip home. There was no option to select seats upon purchase. We had a great vacation but the end was soured by having to sit apart from each other. This should never happen. If you purchase multiple seats you should automatically be seated with them."
Cons: "We were told multiple times it "wouldn't be much longer" until we got going...2 hours later we were still at the gate. The only thing done to make this time easier was to give all passengers free TV for the duration of the flight. Wow, thanks. I was lucky my layover was 2.5 hours so I just made my connection. Most other connecting passengers were not so lucky. Pay the extra money to take a better airline."
