They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."
Cons: "Do not lie to the passengers and make a lot of people check their bags when it’s empty overhead bins."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "Great service from boarding to landing"
Cons: "the flight was delayed by about 90 minutes and the gate was changed two times."
Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."
Cons: "The comfortability and that’s rear even if I had the middle seat. I had it on my way towards Alaska and didn’t have any issue"
Pros: "Crew was amazing! Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Need more than 1 option for breakfast"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "This was the most professional crew we have seen in a long time. What a difference a good crew makes."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
Pros: "The food and enterntaibment are always nice. The captain was super friendly and opportune with his communications. Seating was as fast as possible and boarding was swift."
Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."
Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."
Cons: "I never received anything about my booking. I went the airport Wednesday morning not knowing if I’d actually fly out. I only had on my Kayak app a trip itinerary. Thankfully I did. In Atlanta I added my Skymiles # to my trip. Upon arrival in Mexico I rec’d a push from Delta about my trip with my Record Locator. Flying home was to depart at 8am. When I rec’d my boarding pass it stated 8:55am. While waiting at my gate Delta sent me a text at 7:30am that my flight would be leaving at 8am. That confused me. Needless to say I was suppose to arrive CVG at 3:49pm, but instead was booked on a flight departing Atlanta at 4:30pm. Plans at home had to changed for Friday evening as I was not arriving at mid-afternoon. Needless to say I’ll probably not book thru Kayak anymore."
Pros: "We were early, I had free Wifi, I love Delta!"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "The attention, kindness and never tiring helpful attitude of the personnel."
Cons: "None of the 7 screens I ried had the audio working. I had to result to sleeping when I could have easily enjoyed 3 movies and what not. It would also be helpful to have charging outlets on long-haul/international flights."
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "our connecting flight was delayed 12 hours. The person who checked us in for the flight to Idaho falls checked our baggage for our return flight home, which was an entire week later. So our baggage got sent back to our starting destination and not Idaho falls"
Pros: "Delta captain was very personable, kept us up to date when a slight delay was necessary."
Cons: "It took over 20 minutes to check our bags. Given that we paid $150 to "upgrade" to Economy Comfort for a ONE HOUR flight, it would have been nice if DAL enabled us to check in with Sky Priority."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."
Pros: "The professionalism of Delta employees, timeliness of flt."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours due to mechanical difficulties"
Pros: "Only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Like everyone, I dislike the tight seating."
Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."
Pros: "Very comfortable plane, 4 snack choices, friendly crew."
Cons: "It was all good, except that the charging stations were difficult to figure out since they were out of sight under the seats. I had to have the flight attendant plug in my charger."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Cons: "I fly Delta quite often, and am usually pleased with their service, but the morning of June 23 was terrible. I got to the airport in Denver at 5:30 am for a 7:30 am flight to Atlanta, and the line to check a bag was about 40 people long. I waited 55minutes to check my bag, as they kept moving the ski priority people, and people in danger of missing their flight, to the head of the line. There were obviously not enough Delta workers on staff to process all the flights at that time."
Pros: "Repair took just under an hour which I think is very good considering the paperwork that is involved. We were informed and everyone on the plane seemed to understand so the handling of the event must have been exceptional..."
Cons: "we took off 45 minutes late, business trip, but a slack day prepping for tomorrow, so still no big deal. Besides we picked up an hour by the time zone change. Im good!"
Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and I really enjoyed having multiple USB ports to keep my devices charged."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Pros: "Gate crew did a good job, passed out snacks and drinks with delay"
Cons: "Lot's of upset people worrying about connections"
Pros: "Decent choice of entertainment options."
Cons: "Crew was racist, grumpy and dismissive. Boarding on and off the plane was chaotic to say the least."
Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"
Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"
Cons: "We boarded on time then Pilot announced that they were working in the plane so we sat at the gate 90 minutes with no air conditioning. I would have much preferred to have been in terminal while waiting for maintenance to repair aircraft"
Pros: "The 1st class crew were amazing!"
Cons: "A bigger plane."
Pros: "You sold my seat , now I am sleeping in the airport it is no nice"
Cons: "Yes if you keep my seat"
Pros: "New aircraft was more comfortable"
Cons: "I think they did excellent"
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. The seats are very uncomfortable. It feels like you are being packed in a sardine can."
Cons: "The airlines need to take into consideration, the Price that passengers pay for an airline ticket, only to be restricted in those uncomfortable positions on the average of 2 to 3 hours."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed one hour"
Cons: "Flight currently delayed 3 hours! No help booking another flight or compensation or way of getting back to NYC in time."

Pros: "Arrived on time despite late departure"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in CLT but uncontrollable"
Pros: "The food was good and there was a great entertainment selection."
Cons: "The one calling out the group numbers was unnecessarily rude. Then when I couldn't pull up my boarding pass to see my seat number the woman at plane's door acted like they was nothing she could do to find out my seat. Luckily another flight attendant actually knew how to do something and cared about me getting to my seat. For the flight, the air quality in the plane wasn't good and they seats felt like small prisons."
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."
Pros: "WiFi was on the flight. Free with TMobile."
Cons: "Easy and fast flight"
Cons: "Food could have been better. Plane was 1/2 full. WiFi was not giving all the movies. Only 6 or 7 to choose from."
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment so 1 star rating. Kind passenger switched seats so I could sit with my husband and son. Would have had to sit behind them if not for her. Paying extra for isle seats was a surprise."
Cons: "Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years."
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away."
Pros: "My flight to Frankfurt was a disaster. Delays at LGA caused me to miss the connection. Two very nice AA customer service phone staff attempted to help by booking me on a Lufthansa/United flight out of JFK that same evening. HOWEVER, I got to JFK only to discover I had NOT been ticketed. A lengthy call to AA resulted a a lame apology -“we don’t do that” they claimed, but the had previously! And had booked me, so what the heck was this??? I’m still fuming!"
Cons: "Lies! They rebooked me on a Lufthansa flight out of JFK and I got there only to discover “they had made a mistake.” Utter garbage excuses."
Pros: "Arrived early, friendly crew, good exit row seat."
Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."
Pros: "I fell asleep and missed dinner. When I woke up one of the stuff came up to me and asked me if I would like to eat something and went especially for me and got me the the dinner portion. Although we had a delay I was informed promptly and the staff apologized for my inconvenience. The airline took responsibility and did not blame the delay on other factors. Thanks for being honest"
Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."
Pros: "Variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Flight attendant was a little snippy sometimes."
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Pros: "Excellent aircraft. EJR190. Not big but very comfortable aircraft. AA has decided to give actual leg room. Nice experience even in the back of the aircraft."
Cons: "AA needs to work on boarding logistics at LaGuardia. It's confusing to have to shuttle across the tarmac to another terminal. If the flight times had been closer I would not have arrived in time to board."
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They didnt tell us that emergency seats do not recling"
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "A bit of wait I'm the taxi area in Miami. Not AAs fault double."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "The service was good and the food was ok. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "That we didn't have our own screen to select our own movies."
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "I never even made the flight because they kept jerking us around"

Cons: "Additional price for baggage , plus 8$ for a crapy meal in airplane"
Cons: "Free WiFi kn the plane was hardly working even over US mainland, before it list connection with outside internet over ocean. But it is something I do not care much about."
Pros: "The whole experience was fine, as expected for today’s standard."
Cons: "Boarding would be better if the window seats go first, followed by middle seats then aisle seats."
Pros: "Excellent. On time."
Cons: "Disappointed that the flight was United. I thought I booked for Lufthansa & therefore expecting to fly Lufthansa. Crew not as friendly. Food not up to par compared to Asian airlines for international flights. Cheese sandwich for lunch? My TV monitor wouldn’t readily reset."
Pros: "Was delayed"
Cons: "The WiFi was out"
Pros: "What did I like about a fat person next to me: NOTHING !!"
Cons: "With smaller and smaller seats this guy was 350 pounds and 6 foot 5 inch. There is/was no way he was fitting in a coach seat. The guy's shoulders came 30% into my space. We couldn't put the arm rest down between us he was so fat. I am a 60 year old man that is 5 ft 10 in and weighs 165 pounds with a slender frame. Plus, the guy had BODY ODOR and smelled horrible. It was a 100% full flight or I would have asked to be moved. Now, about two hours later after the flight, my body is sore from sitting awkward for nearly 3 hours. Jim Chadderdon, Southern Oregon Frequent Flier."
Cons: "Delayed just like my first leg. Will never fly United again."
Cons: "When to Newark airport to check in, crew were very disorganized and very rude. Nobody was willing to help us and everybody tried to avoid people who looked like they needed help. Worst airport ever."
Pros: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable for the entire flight and tarmac time. The overhead air wasn't working either so that didn't help. Other than that, the flight was great."
Cons: "Cabin temperature"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and food and snacks were good."
Cons: "By the time I got to my seat all overhead bins by my seat were all full so I had to take my carryon towards middle of the plane to place it in an overhead bin. I also had to remember to write down the number of that bin so I could retrieve my carryon at the end of my flight.Toilet was not very clean."

Pros: "The flight was nice crew was nice"
Cons: "The fact it took three calls to get chair to the gate my knees and back is not good.. Some places on a flight the airline took one call few min chair was there this was the longest I had to wait and get someone to call and call"
Pros: "There were some great employees but unfortunately one of the team didn't share their personality"
Cons: "There was one employee or steward who just didn't seem to want to be there did his job but compared to the others was not on the same page of the team"
Pros: "First through all the issues I will say that the staff was nice and helped us the best they could to fix what went wrong. Except one thing..."
Cons: "The flight to Chicago got delayed due to weather (not Uniteds fault), then got stuck in Sioux Falls due to need for gas (also not Uniteds fault), but when we finally got to Chicago and got told we couldn't continue on to our destination for two days United refused to get us a hotel room. They said that since no one had entered the mechanical failure that made us stay in Sioux Falls (also not Uniteds fault) that they couldn't give us rooms at a hotel. What a crock. We ended up having to borrow money from my in laws to be able to afford a hotel room for 2 days."
Pros: "Best united flight I've been on in a very long time!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment alternatives."
Pros: "Since the plane was an hour late, many with connecting flights worried about making their connections. It'd be helpful if there was a way to communicate with flights to know whether one would make the connection or not. trying to get off the plane in a hurry is stressful."

Cons: "The offer me 2 redeyes flights instead and 7 hours wait in SF !!!!"

Cons: "Seating was crowded and uncomfortable. My seat wouldn't recline."
Pros: "Night quiet flight fast"
Cons: "Tight seats super full"
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."
Pros: "Food in the airplane and the quickness of the arrival."
Cons: "They left us at the gate waiting for a long time without an assigned seat. They didn't announce boarding time, we were waiting for so long and the crew saw us sitting down and didn't call us. The flight almost left us. The lady at the airport was extremely rude, I asked her her name and she refused to give it to us. The delay was absurd."
Pros: "The airplane crew"
Cons: "They left us waiting for hours at the gate without assigning us a seat. When I finally made the line for the third time, the rude lady gave us a seat. Then they didn't call for by groups and we were about to be left on boarding time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant, eager to assist in every way possible, but even they had problems figuring out how to light the individual seats in my row. I enjoyed the free entertainment and ability to choose from a variety of programs."
Cons: "Other than frequent offer of chips and water, the food services seemed long in coming, both in terms of a lunch 'snack' and the 'main' meal, which consisted of only a ham & cheese sandwich, barely warm, and difficult to chew because of the hard roll. I've never had such poor food on an international flight before."
Pros: "The flight attendants were attentive, the pilot was informative, and the gate agents kept the line moving"
Cons: "We waited over 10 min to allow 2 families with small children to sit together. These sorts of things should be handled when the ticket is purchased, not at the expense of the flight taking off on time. In fact, the pilot took to the PA to say "come on, we've got like 2 mins to leave." The whole ordeal took 2 flight attendants, a gate agent, and required 5 people to move around."
Cons: "Rude and unhelpful staff. Delayed also which made my travel bad."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very friendly"
Cons: "Since I could not check in the day before I was not able to change my seat. The gate agent was not helpful"

Pros: "Friendly and caring staff. Quick and prompt boarding process."
Pros: "I made it to my destination and was offered a beverage"
Cons: "Everything else. No one greeted me. No TVs. Luggage was ruined. Ppl were rude"
Pros: "Everything , great service , very attentive , smooth flight ."
Pros: "Flight was on time even with a take off delay"
Cons: "On late flight would be nice with pillow/blanket Somewhere along the way our approved TSA locks were taken and zipper on one suitcase broken because of it. Not happy about that."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 9:20 to 1am because of no captain. There were minimal updates unless someone went to ask them. I think it's ludicrous to have to pay for a movie or a snack at 5am on a flight that should have already landed. I've flown plenty of other airlines that are sensitive to delays and accept responsibility. United did none of this."
Pros: "My flight were on time and early. The flight was great, i had no issues"
Cons: "The Line to go through TSA was sooo long. Was not nice to disability passagers. Was very upset"
Pros: "The staff was friendly... I liked the dimmed lights... The free beverages n options to purchase alcohol... The flight was quick and steady"
Cons: "When I got to my seat I had to use a wipe to clean it because there was what looked like either throw up or oatmeal on my seat.... The pocket in front of me was filled with trash like an empty water bottle, a bag of chips and dirty napkins (they were very big so it was obvious that no one cleans between flights)... Also it didn't matter how many times I tried connecting to the wifi, I couldn't and I was willing to pay for it to because it was important that I work during my flight."
Pros: "Had ways to stay entertained onboard"
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable"
Pros: "Overall Good Flight"
Cons: "Food selection"
