Airline reviews

Pros: "Delayed, packed, bought a sandwich! Good sandwiches!"
Cons: "Packed and delayed"

Pros: "No surprises. On time. Courteous. I suppose the most amazing thing is their app. It tells you when your bags get on! Also I forgot that I had a knife in my pocket. I ran back to the desk and she went back, found my bag, put the knife in there. Wow. What service. Also I notice that Atlanta is a lot nicer than it use to be. Attendants are more friendly and loading is more organized. Way to go Delta."

Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."

Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"

Pros: "Product was excellent, the whole experience was amazing."

Cons: "No blanket if you're not 1st class lol. I haven't flew in solo long, idk,i thought they were complimentary lol. & cups of water? What happened to the Shasta's lol."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "it took 7hours due to storms"

Pros: "Friendly, friendly, friendly."

Pros: "It doesn't matter how good all of the above were when one of our bags did not make the connection in Atlanta and when it was delivered late at night to my home and it has been torn beyond repair"
Cons: "Bag did not make the connection and it was damaged beyond repair"

Cons: "Aeromexico has terrible customer services from check in to over the phone. There are no other options and I can't believe Delta works w/ them. Just no words to describe the horrible experience all around."

Cons: "they treated us like cows"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Too old aircrafts"

Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "The delta employees kept us informed of what was going on with the jetway which had broken. Despite the chaotic boarding, we arrived at our destination on time! Way to go! I do love delta."
Cons: "Due to the construction in the airport, there is a small area for this group of people to be ready to board, therefore, it was very difficult to move or get around, Suggest that employees give more instructions about boarding procedures and suggest that people line up accordingly in the right order. They should explain the order of entry, and ask for people who are the last group to stay back so that those who board first are allowed through."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The crew was nice, the seating was poor rather you paid to pick or not. When boarding you are told to social distance but you got folk sitting bunched up together with someone sitting next to you the whole flight. Delta doesn’t have people sitting in the middle seats. Poor flight when it comes to safety or health over money. SAD!"

Pros: "The fact that no one sat next to me believe me it was not a my choice there was just not a body to put in the seat"
Cons: "The staff was not friendly or say hello or goodbye"

Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."

Pros: "Very smooth boarding process. Made an announcement early that later groups would have issues with finding overhead space and asked for volunteers to check bags at the gate at no charge. Made things go very well without any delays."
Cons: "Nothing to improve. Very well run."

Pros: "On time departure and early arrival. Crew was great."

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "I don’t understand the concept of the ability to use your mobile device for entertainment, yet not having a power source to charge your device."

Pros: "loved the free movies on board, also on time departure and before time arrival makes me feel the best."

Cons: "Connection to inflight entertainment was complicated and lengthy, barely got access to it for 45 min"

Cons: "No other snack choice, just pretzel. Can we have some cookies?"

Cons: "Cabin pressure was not great!"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Good service."

Pros: "I liked getting to my destination on time."
Cons: "The one carry-on policy was silly and included personal items. I was told to repack my purse into my backpack which was already full. The boarding staff stood over me and told me to throw stuff away in my backpack and asked why I had packed certain things. I am in the process of moving back to the US from Korea after two years so everything I had was everything I owned in the world - which included some sentimental things like a stuffed animal from my mother who passed away when I was three years old. The most infuriating part of this however was realizing that there was one other bag in my overhead bin. In fact most of the overhead bins had one to two bags and plenty of room. My repacking and humiliation was unnecessary and it was only for the morbid satisfaction of the lady at boarding demanding it. At one point I heard her talking with her coworkers about “why couldn’t they freaking listen. We announced it three times.” Well I had approached the counter prior to arrival and they told me to get back in line when I tried to ask about my purse and backpack. In additional to the frustration of all of that, I received my checked in luggage with a wheel missing. I had just bought it and now I have to ship a wheel from the vendor in South Korea or buy new luggage. Thank you guys so much for letting me know which airline to never fly with again."

Pros: "Cookies they offered were vegan friendly."
Cons: "Had to sit in the very last row which didn’t recline."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Just little delay."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The man at the gate was rude and tried to tell me I needed to pay 50$ to bring on my small purse, while his assistant said I could put it in my carry-on. Even more strict that Spieit airlines and higher prices. They didn't even bring around drinks because of "turbulence" unless you were first class. The plane shook slightly more than a smooth flight for only a small fraction of the flight."

Pros: "boarding process was efficient and the seats on this aircraft seemed a bit more comfortable"
Cons: "lack of in-seat video and no free wi-fi and no power connections"

Cons: "No food, no entertainment, no room for luggage, no good."

Pros: "Great at all."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The cramped space"

Pros: "I think for the most part you have some of the best customer service but your snacks are awful compared to other airlines."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I never felt like writing a review but I feel like I should let other families with little ones know. My wife, 2 year old son, and I was boarding at the gate and they couldn't scan my son's boarding pass. They quickly went over to the computer station and gave my son another pass. We went to our seats and found out someone else is in our 2year old seat. Apparently they gave the seat to someone else at the last second because up to the point when I printed our boarding passes at the kiosk, our seats were still together (and I paid $41/per seat extra to try to keep us together). The other customer was nice enough to switch with our son so were able to stay together at the last min so it goes to show AA priority and service."

Pros: "Honestly I enjoyed every little moment. I haven't traveled to Atlanta in 9 years and let's say traveling with AA is great. Starting from the check-in up until baggage claim in atl. Everything was speedy! I'm so happy that I went with AA I had a spectacular arrival."

Pros: "Great seat space"
Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "The lax to atl flight was on a much better plane with all the modern features to make the 5hr flight comfortable."
Cons: "The atl to lax was an old plane and wasn't comfortable for a 5hr flight"

Cons: "Never got a complimentary beverage. The cart only delivered to some of the rows"

Cons: "The kiosk had no where to enter my DoD number to get precheck. There was also no option to select military baggage. Due to the lack of options on the kiosk I had to wait in the customer service line for almost an hour. The flight was fine. Then my baggage turned out to be flying on a much later flight so it has to be shipped to me. I am very unsatisfied and disappointed with this airline."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "There were charging outlets. Bravo!"
Cons: "They lost my baggage"

Pros: "Good entertainment option"
Cons: "Very delayed"

Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "We were delayed multiple times and landed extremely late"

Pros: "All if the gate staff & on board staff that I interacted with were very friendly & efficient."
Cons: "Very tight/small & crowded waiting area."

Cons: "There was an incident on plane between passenger and flight attendant, where a drink was spilled on me and ruined my dress and shoes."

Pros: "Price space, time"
Cons: "Waiting.. but better to be early than late"

Pros: "Everything was pretty decent.. Best part was the price.. Boarding was good staff was good"
Cons: "Wasn't enough room.. kind of tight.. Couple more inches all around would have been perfect though"

Pros: "I thought frontier was worst but american is not too far because american flight can not fly on time."

Pros: "I like the fact that the price was reasonable and the airline didn't charge for EVERYTHING! I didn't feel robbed."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "The planes people and service."
