Pros: "Boarding was a fast and smooth process. Flight attendants were there to help with carry on luggage if needed. Always nice and do their best."

Pros: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"

Cons: "Every thing was good"

Cons: "Do not lie to the passengers and make a lot of people check their bags when it’s empty overhead bins."

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."

Pros: "They were great & super friendly!!"

Cons: "Seem that they turned off the air conditioning once we landed in the cabin got on the warm side."

Cons: "They have to improve the boarding process a bit."

Pros: "Happy to be home"
Cons: "Allow more time for check in"

Pros: "The fact that we left on time given the thunderstorms in the area, and landed on time in Atlanta was amazing. Congratulations to the crew!"
Cons: "Not surprised there was no WiFi, but it would have been nice as more aircraft of all sizes are now equipped with WiFi."

Pros: "The service on plane was great and so was the opportunity to check luggage, although I was happy I didn't have to."
Cons: "Boarding from DTW to LAX, we had to stand for a long time on the jetway and it was really cold. It was the holding place after they checked my ticket. Otherwise, it was a great experience flying Delta."

Pros: "Flight was very late- about 45 minutes because of some problem with the "paperwork" they said. It was a beautiful day and the crew was ready to go, but we all sat for a long time before being allowed to leave Madison. It's especially bad when we've all made ourselves arrive at 5am for a 6am flight"
Cons: "on time departure"

Pros: "During the wait the monitors were turned on and we were able to watch movies"
Cons: "Flight got delayed in Atlanta we’re sitting on the plane for about an hour, We didn’t get offer anything during that time."

Cons: "knees were jammed into the seat in front of me."

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: "The flight itself was fine, boarded on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "A pet peeve of mine is having to check my carry on. They said the overhead bins were all completely full, so I checked my bag at the gate. Come to find out, there were a few spaces left and it wasn't necessary. Really annoying."

Pros: "Everything went as planned!"

Pros: "Quick and easy."

Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed at 12:07am, and we would have missed the connecting flight."

Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."

Cons: "Baggage was delayed overnight. With modern tracking, should have been notified that the luggage was not loaded on the same flight as me, eliminating my wasting 45 minutes at ATL realizing that my baggage was not coming and then having to queue to notify the airline that it had not come."

Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"

Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "we had a l long wait getting to the gate. Once we are the gate the delta staff had a hard time getting a wheelchair victim on the plane."

Cons: "3.5 hours late."

Cons: "Flights on time"

Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"

Cons: "Wifi didn't work (network wouldn't show up)."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "I always feel that the flight attendants on Delta truly care about your flight experience. The smile, the attentiveness, the thoroughness and giving you the attention you desire."
Cons: "Ran out of bananas before they got to me, no big deal and it looks like Delta is getting healthier options every year."

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: "Nice flight attendant."
Cons: "Both legs of the flight were delayed, requiring long stays on the tarmac."

Pros: "I had a great pilot on this flight. He always told us what was happening, why we had a wait on the tarmac in LGA, why he anticipated it might be a choppy flight, how to access in flight entertainment so we could be distracted. Gave us some trivia questions. Joked about Pokemon go, walked along the aisle talking to us. He was awesome!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. But what else is new?"

Cons: "Free WiFi"

Pros: "All 4 legs of our flight were right on time, and the planes appeared to be clean."
Cons: "Paying first class fare buys a couple of additional inches of space, but nothing more. There's nothing really first class about it."

Cons: "I’m tall. And there is no room to put my legs or my arms."

Cons: "Faster baggage pickup at DFW"

Cons: "The head phone jacks were loose so watching a movie was extremely difficult. The aisle is so small you can’t even walk down it without bumping people who are seated. It seemed like none of the crew wanted to be there."

Pros: "We didn’t crash"
Cons: "Customer service . Better baggage service , hot food , non canceled flights"

Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."

Pros: "Good leg room. Seems to have improved."
Cons: "Additional food options would be good."

Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"

Cons: "As we were boarding, our carryon bags were literally grabbed from us and checked in - that too not valet checked but through to the Baggage Claim. I needed to rush out and had to wait for the baggage instead. I pleaded with the agent to allow me to fit the smallish bag under the seat to no avail."

Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"
Cons: "Seat number is crazy. ACDF. How about ABCD..."

Pros: "Service/entertainment on the plane was great."
Cons: "We were unable to check in the night before due to website issues and made it so we didn't have seats assigned until everyone else was boarded onto the plane and because of that I couldn't sit next to my girlfriend."

Pros: "Worst flight of my life"
Cons: "The crew was rude, the entertainment system was broken, there was 0 leg room, and it took hitting the call button 4 times to get water after beverage service (the second time they walked up, turned it off and walked away). I vowed to never fly American again after this flight."

Cons: "Seats are small but I understand why just dont like it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight from Madison to Chicago got cancelled and I had to drive for three hors to get to o’ Hare."

Cons: "snacks"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Aircraft seating was terrible! Seats were way too close together. Seats were uncomfortable. Couldn’t even get an entire soda from the attendant. Made me remember why I dislike flying."

Pros: "Checking in and boarding the plane went fast and smoothly. The crew was very kind and friendly."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."

Pros: "much improved food quality and entertainment quality then previous international flights on AA."

Cons: "My husband started coughing really badly. I rang the call button to see if a flight attendant would come and maybe help me. Eventually, after about 6 minutes, he managed to control his breathing and still no flight attendant to be seen. Only after 20 minutes while distributing the meals, one of the attendants shuts the call sign of and continues. This is not the service we usually get from Avianca!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful and very accommodating. They were pleasant, nice to talk to, and attentive to all passengers. Special assist personal were polite, pleasant and extremely helpful."
Cons: "I did not understand if I booked with British Airways why my return flight was through American Airlines. I requested special accommodations with extra leg room as a result of recent knee surgery. My seat location was in row 34, the back of the cabin. Not as pleasant. Too far to walk leg room uncomfortable at times during the 8 hour flight."

Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"

Pros: "Todo bien"
Cons: "Todo"

Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."

Pros: "Flight on Time, Confort, Crew"
Cons: "I know if you want food, you must pay but not even a cookie...???"

Cons: "The electronic screen that shows movies etc. needs to be updated. Some of the functions did not work and those that did work were very difficult to get to work well. Disappointing. Obsolete technology."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "This thing that they called an exit row had no extra legroom whatsoever!"

Cons: "Lovely flight, but onboarding groups were a nightmare. Given the chaos, they started forcing bags to be checked early."

Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."

Cons: "Poor snack options"

Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"

Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"

Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."

Pros: "My Unit did not work. The crew tried to fix it but couldn't"
Cons: "I was unable to use my entertainment unit, computer:tv"

Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"

Pros: "The plane was new and the leg room was worth the extra $20."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment and the seat did not recline. I guess there are pros and cons in the exit row. I also had no choice but to buy the more expensive seat since all others were taken at check-in."

Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being contacted even though reservation was cancelled the day it was made months ago. Caused unnecessary stress that I needed to call Airline to confirm cancellation."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Speed check in"
Cons: "Nothing"
