Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Comfort+ seats are affordable and give me the leg room I need as a 6'3" adult."
Cons: "Seems like Delta provided free upgrades to families with small children in Comfort+. This impacts the flight comfort for us paying customers. Recommend readdressing this policy and not placing small crying children in Comfort+ for free."

Cons: "Be on time. Not keep changing/delaying the border time. Not change my seat. (Plane was far from full.)"
Pros: "Great crew, prompt and courteous despite the short flight"
Cons: "Flight departed an hour past scheduled time due to a snafu with flight attendants: they were either absent or really late or a replacement crew. Unacceptable personnel management."
Pros: "Pilot and staff were informative and great"
Cons: "I was forced to upgrade to first class by Air France stuff in Athens which they Deceive me not telling me that the first class was not for the entire trip to JFK! If I was informed I would not spend the extra money to flight on an economy “seat” which was not comfy seats for the entire trip"

Pros: "The flight crew was very competent and welcoming."
Cons: "The gate agent at JFK was annoying. She forced us to check carry on bags for no apparent reason. Much larger carry on’s were allowed both before and after us. Her fellow agent seemed like she wanted to apologize for her capricious behavior, but was understandably hesitant to do so. The airplane seating was cramped and uncomfortable. The rntertainment choices were very limited unless you enjoy superhero movies or a very limited range of audio/musical selections. So it goes in coach class."

Pros: "Everyone was great!"

Pros: "Free food. Extra room."
Cons: "Waiting on runway"
Pros: "Staff were very good."
Cons: "We had an infant and in order to get a meal for the baby one of our paid seats did not get a meal. Very unsatisfactory for first class. The toddler meal provided was terrible. Stale bread, cheese on the sandwich was so bad the baby wouldn't eat it, and he eats almost everything. It was the first food I have seen him refuse to eat."
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."

Cons: "I don't have any compliants"
Pros: "Entertainment is so appreciated on long flights. It was quiet. Snacks done quickly. Took a long time to board, but the flight was full. We were delayed out of gate because of this.

Pros: "Not a good experience. Crew was unhappy, disengaged, seemed too busy and buried."
Cons: "NEverything seemed hurried and frenzied. Airplane was dirty when we boarded."
Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."
Pros: "Good movies and some snacks."
Cons: "They told me last minute I needed to go to another gate for a passport check and a new ticket. They shouldn't have waited until the very last minute."
Pros: "Plane was far too tight. Very uncomfortable for taller individuals."
Pros: "Ontime boarding, few minutes delay made up enroute for ontime arrival."
Cons: "Cabin service interrupted by turbulent weather."
Cons: "The staff"

Cons: "Only one engine was working"
Cons: "Late. No legroom"
Pros: "Who could ask for more?"
Cons: "This is possibly the worst airplane food ive ever had. Ever. The chicken didn't look nor taste like chicken and it was in some weird green chickpea sauce?? Very unpleasant."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Delta provided a superior experience!"
Pros: "Reachung my destination"
Cons: "I can appreciate the stress on everybody's mind but this was the worst time i had flying. Short story, 10am thursday-7pm friday. Less short story, 4 airlines, 3 security screenings and 2 customs stop points.7 delays, 2 cancels and 1 miss. It was a ping pong nightmare and 2 times it was suggested i take a bus...after i spent the money on a plane ticket with no offer of compensation, food vouchers or hotel accommodation. Delta has to convince me to come back to them."
Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"
Pros: "The Crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, but due to no fault of Delta's...it was weather. Of course, the seats are very tight and this is something that Delta has control over."
Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Cons: "The comfort seating on this aircraft was not as good as other Deltaflights. No extras or service."
Pros: "Availability of First Class service was the only saving grace."
Cons: "Delays longer than the scheduled flight time. Entertainment options are limited in the time of such a short flight. Long distance between gates when you have been forced into a hurry by delays."
Pros: "The airlines bumped us up to better seats without us asking!"
Pros: "Crew was very rude and did not follow actual baggage policies regarding a passenger’s batteries in their bag that fit just fine in the overhead."
Cons: "Crew could maybe re-read policy and use their logic to apply it correctly."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room in first class. Staff were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Dancing clowns? Overall it was a nice and pleasant flight"
Pros: "Not a lot. Entertainment options on board were decent. Food was alright."
Cons: "Everything! Crew were terse, rude and inattentive. Due to an issue with a bag on board without the associated passenger we had to taxi back to the stand for it to be removed before we could take off. This cost us an hours delay. There was limited apologies for this, no refreshments provided during the wait and poor communication of this. During the flight the staff were inattentive and sparing with refreshments. Service generally did not live up to expected level associated with an inter-continents flight. The flight was turbulent but crew and captain seemed over cautious with it and crew had to remain seated unnecessarily at times and at the detriment of passenger service. One stewardess wouldn’t even let me finish a drink before removing it from my hand claiming we were about to land and she had to sit down because of turbulence. We were still 40 mins from landing at this point! All in all a pretty bad flight, and it’s safe to say I won’t be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a missing officer. Because of this, I missed my flight from Chicago to Narita Japan. I had to cancel the hotel in Japan and pay $120 cancellation fee. The customer service changed my flight to go to Dallas/Fort Worth TX then fly to Narita Japan next day. They gave me vouchers for hotel stay and meal ($12) which are absolutely minimal compensation after all this headaches. They were unable to upgrade my seat since they’re full. Now the flight to Narita is 2 hour delay and they have changed the gate at least twice. I’m worried if I can get on the next connecting flight to Sapporo due to this delayed schedule. I feel like this whole trip is ruined because the delayed flight from Philadelphia to Chicago. This has been my worst and the most ridiculous flight experience ever. I don’t think I ever want to fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "This seats on this flight were very comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to mechanical issue with a lens on one of the plane's exterior lights."
Pros: "Big jet not typical going into Knoxville."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding had every zone called essentially at once so we could all stand."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay on the ground - very poor communication from Crew"
Cons: "I am quite sure there was a booking error and no one was willing to make any accommodation. Should have been charlotte to boston. I ate the cost. Tried to reschedule with cheapo air and voila wrong again. That cost me another $50.00"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"
Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."
Pros: "One of our fellow passengers was willing to change seats so my wife and I could sit together."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of American's Basic Economy, where they nickel-and-dime for every little thing. Choosing seats while checking in online does not cost the airline any more than assigning them, so charging for the privilege of choosing your seat is simply a money grab."
Cons: "the fact they changed my schedule and had to come in earlier customer service was awful and my luggage came back dirty and the best response was that the belts are dirty and i can expect wear and tear. not only that i had to book myself an earlier trip to pay the standby fee so i can leave the same time my brother left tsa screening had us wait 20 min before we move in the line for the fact no worker was there but one guy and i was the last person to board the plane after almost missing closing gates my expierence was awful and disrespectful"
Pros: "Food was ok and flight was early."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess and had to take a bus in frigid temps. Plane was from the 80s not entertainment unit and everything feeling old and rickety"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Isles for walking are way too small! I mean you can’t walk normally. I am 5’11” 195 lbs. not big but I have to move sideways down the isle. This is a very dangerous situation in a emergency situation. Something needs to be done. The seat space between the seats is another story"
Pros: "The seat I chose was good. Was first row behind business class. Lots of leg room. But the seats were a little uncomfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment is really bad on touchscreen. We live in a world where everyone uses phones and tablets and these screens do not work well with touch. Really bad experience there."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "It was so ht on the aircraft, Almost no aircirculation"
Pros: "Seat very small"
Cons: "Flight got delayed by 2 hours"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times. Little knowledge from front desk, relied on my phone for updated info."

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly, the plane was clean and food was ok"

Cons: "1hr delay"
Pros: "Overall flight was great. Crew, pilot, flight attendants, boarding, everyone and everything was great. Drinks and snacks were offered."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. 45 mins flight from San Antonio to Dallas had seatback entertainment. But 2hr flight from Dallas to Cozumel had no seatback entertainment. Go figure."
Pros: "The crew members were very nice"
Cons: "The boarding system was HORRIBLE, I had seats at the front of the plane but I was Group 8 on both planes. It would have made sense to have the people at the front board first instead of last"
Pros: "My flight was early"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra $5 because I did not have a card to check my luggage."
Pros: "The smooth flight"
Cons: "The smell in the plane"
Pros: "Gate crew provided frequent updates about the nature and duration of our substantial delay in takeoff. Polite and efficient crew"
Cons: "2.5-hour delay caused me to miss connection in Tokyo. Boarding took a long time. Nearly one hour for my suitcase to emerge on carousel, well after all other bags. Legroom minimum in coach. Sandwich for the snack was frozen in the middle."
Pros: "Cleanliness of plane, attitude of crew, on time"
Cons: "0600 departure. Too early."
Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Cons: "There is no legroom in coach. I am six foot seven and my knees cram against the seat in front of me to the point my legs go numb."
Pros: "They provided tablets."
Cons: "They changef aircraft for an old one. Bc Seat really uncomfortable. Not dorect aisle access. No avod. No wifi. We were waiting 20min at the aircraft door waiting to enter."
Pros: "I was traveling with an infant and the staff was so helpful. I will definitely fly AA again."
Cons: "I dislike how early the entertainment system shuts off"
Pros: "It was quick and we had a smooth landing...."
Cons: "Upon arriving in Lima, Avianca 808 passengers became aware that none (zero, nada) of the bags were loaded onto the plane in Cusco. The customer service response to this airline error was sub-par. Passengers were told that the baggage issue was "weather-related", which is ludicrous even if the weather both in origin and destination had not been clear and sunny with no wind (it was). Info was taken on if passengers needed bags sent on to another destination or to a hotel but were told it would not get to Lima until the next morning (this was flight 808 landing just before 4 pm). Unclear why it couldn't be put on the next flight same day. And unclear what is happening to our bags now until the morning. No apology wasn't issued to passengers. Additionally we were delayed 15 mins due to "weather". I don't mind short delays but it was absolutely not weather-related. Weather is the default excuse to transfer fault away from themselves."
Cons: "Haven't taken it yet!"
Cons: "The only negative aspect of the three hopswas a couple of gate changes prior to boarding... one at Dallas and one at Charlotte and the could not have been much further apart, new gate from the original gate... but it made for a leg-stretcher during a long day of sitting"
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing beat Pilot and the flight crew ...... "FANTASTIC""
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Cons: "Flight was very late. Boarding was not good!"
Pros: "Snacks were good. Staff was nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Plane was old and uncomfortable. Part of the paneling in the wall wasn't lined up and looked like it was cracked and loose. Dear pocket back was falling off and my tray table was cracked and leaned towards one direction."
Pros: "After boarding and a 20 min wait seated we were told we had to leave the plane because of the broken something . It was fixed and we were off about two hours late. Fresno is a beautiful easy airport."
Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"
Pros: "I liked the seating on the first part of the flight and the snacks"
