Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The entertainer system was down all of the flight, could not charge my phone. Crew was polite but Curt."
Cons: "We read in the Delta onboard magazine about Delta’s commitment to women. Yet Delta coverups a rape by one male employee against a recent immigrant in a Delta vehicle. What say you?"
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Cons: "I think all was very good"
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Delayed, packed, bought a sandwich! Good sandwiches!"
Cons: "Packed and delayed"
Pros: "Good crew, kind and hard working staff. It is so nice to have inflight messaging and that was a pleasant surprise that made the flight go quickly."
Cons: "I found the delta app to be less user friendly than the United one. I wish the in flight entertainment were in the Delta app versus downloading yet another app."
Pros: "surprisingly spacious seats. plane felt brand new. on screen entertainment was great, and relieved to have charging inputs for my device in the seat."
Cons: "The bathrooms smelled every time someone opened the door. Febreeze, please!!"
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "My suitcase arrived damaged."
Pros: "Everything A-Z"
Cons: "They sell the headsets for $2!!!!!!"
Pros: "Let's start from the beginning. The flight was delayed for over an hour. Despite guaranteeing anyone with a connecting flight would all be taken care of, here I am still stuck in Amsterdam airport... delayed another 10 hours. The service after arrival was poor and slow..2 hours to get new flight"
Cons: "The travel agents assisting should have been ready for the number of passengers and triaged accordingly. They did not. Which meant a lot of us standing in line for hours missing new connecting flights."
Pros: "Very professional crew and in a good mood."
Cons: "The boardimg in Mexico City is always so messy. I think airlines should send back passengers that pretend it is their boarding time when it is not. So many people end up boarding before they should making a mess at the boardimg gate."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection in Atlanta. We’re put on standby on the 2 later flights with no guarantee of seats. Flights out the next morning we’re booked as well. Would’ve had to wait until 2pm for a flight home. Decided to switch destinations and rent a car to get home. Luggage also wasn’t on plane to Columbia, SC either even though they said they would be!!"
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."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Pros: "It’s become a mediocre airline."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 75 min because the plane wouldnt start. A differernt aircraft was needed to resume ops."

Cons: "We flu at 12m. They gived us a mini sándwich and a coke"
Pros: "Everything was fine except I ordered an aisle seat and was given a middle seat instead. The person who did get aisle played a war game for my territory with his arns over the arm rest and his refusal to get up whem the window person needed out. Next tine I will demand my aisle purchase is hononored"

Pros: "Crew on board is nice, price is good"

Cons: "same as before"
Cons: "Had to spend the whole day in airport due to justfly booking error"
Cons: "No pude tomar mi vuelo por un error entre su plataforma, la de priceline y la de Aeromexico en el que finalmente salí afectada yo.. Es la peor experiencia que he tenido y no volveré a utilizar sus servicios."
Pros: "I liked how I was always informed on my phone about my flight I was happy that finally someone cared enough to find me a flight for what I had already paid for."
Cons: "If I had KNOWN that I could stay at the airport (everyone was sleeping everywhere lol) then I would have not paid the $100 extra to only have a 1 hr & 20 min layover instead of a 15 hr layover. Because with possibilities of issues like I had as well as the plane leaving early there’s too much stress. Plus I was almost STUCK in the airport because I didn’t have $1000. The insurance I bought did nothing for me because they said I missed the flight (although the flight left early) UGH"
Cons: "The flight itself was fine, but connecting through Mexico City airport is troublesome and time consuming. Mexican authorities make everyone go through a long line at customs. Since we checked in through Delta in San Antonio, we did not have a boarding pass for the Lima portion. , We had to exit into the main concourse to get our boarding pass. At that point we were on standby for seats and barely made our connection."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "scheduled layover was 9+ hours. It became even more painful including a delayed aircraft."

Pros: "The flight attendants were really great."

Cons: "My tv wouldn’t show the movies. The ads worked, but when it went to play the shows it was just black."
Cons: "Dinner was terrible"
Cons: "Rude staff. Airline doesn't respect its own carry-on bag policy. I was forced to leave my bag at the door despite being one of the first on the plane. Seats very close together -- my knees were up against the seat in front of me all night."
Pros: "Good food and good entertainment."
Pros: "Keep some muslim food"
Cons: "Must know that muslim people never eat any kind of pork meat. I was really hungray during the flight"
Cons: "Mexico City lounge was terrible as their key hub , the wife and food was bad so I went to the hsbc lounge as I am a vip there was well"
Pros: "Seat was good. Crew was good. A meal and beverages offered properly."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment seat comfort was good"
Cons: "They came only one time at the beginning of the flight with drinks and only offered peanuts. Since it was an overnight flight they should have offered coffee and tea in the morning."
Cons: "The setas space is too short"
Cons: "Ground staff in Lima was very unhelpful when they broke my suitcase. No offer of refund only a handwritten phone number to call in a few days. Handwriting was not legible."
Cons: "Poor signage, lack of good food restaurants, the over all quality has gone downhill since the 80's and 90's when I would eagerly look forwards to flying to Mexico."
Cons: "Will never fly with Aeromexico ever again"
Pros: "Food was just terrible¡"
Pros: "costumer service"
Cons: "The way they operate now where you have to pay for checking luggage and that we depart 30 minutes late and Apparently Aeromexico is been having problems with the tickets they don’t work when you go to the scanner and you have to go back and print your boarding pass that’s a problem because you have to start back in the line"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment as iwas able to see my favorite program. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Everything was fine. We just got nervous because our luggage was literally the last ones to come out."
Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t let me board"
Cons: "The fact they sell you a flight with a connection in Mexico City with only an hour to transfer is ridiculous. Being that this is mexico’s airline they must know it’s a literal impossibility to make that connection. When you arrive they automatically shuttle you into an area to rebook you almost like it’s expected. Then you wait for 8 hrs in a crowded ghetto airport waiting to get on the next flight. When you speak to customer service they talk to you like your a dummy."
Pros: "Nice crew, free drinks"
Cons: "Food (pasta) was terrible, not a comfortable plane for an overnight flight. I'm small, just over 5ft and 110lbs (50kg) and I was uncomfortable the entire flight, couldn't sleep even 5 minutes."
Cons: "eveything was bad"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kind. I enjoyed the coffe a lot"
Cons: "Boarding was delay. I spent 25 minutes making a line"
Pros: "Provide a service of excellence when the delay is so great because people are upset and should mitigate the anger."
Cons: "Why leave first flights that originally departed 1 hour or two later"
Pros: "The staff on the flights were very nice."
Cons: "I will never book through this airline again. My flight was delayed and no gate information was available to me. I had to ask several people where to go and was told several different answers. This resulted in a lot of excess walking with my luggage. The airport signs have tiny information for non Spanish speaking passengers. Never again."
Cons: "The layover in Mexico city was too long 10 hrs layover....."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Great and attentive ground and air crew. Bilingual and great food and drink."
Pros: "First class"
Cons: "Seats no that comfortable"
Pros: "great crew, good snack"
Cons: "seating just okay, no in flight entertainment, but that's not too much of a problem"
Pros: "The economic price for the great service,because we can travel more often."
Cons: "The kind of sandwich too dry."
Pros: "The crew was very organized, I was treated with respect and always with a nice attitude"
Cons: "The last minute change of seat that really made a difference, I did end up with a back pain"
Pros: "Again, wonderful, friendly, bilingual staff to assist us in our first international travel. Didn't eat this time around but heard it was good. Instead of an actual meal, I wish maybe a light snack would have been offered since our flight was so late. Entertainment choices were good. All of our luggage showed up to both places which is a huge plus."
Cons: "Right away they stated they overbooked the flight by two. We are on our honeymoon so I was nervous that we would miss our flight. Two others volunteered, so we were able to board. We didn't find out what gate we were supposed to board until 2300, the flight was at 2345; the staff didn't seem to know which gate either. Again, seat comfort was not great, especially for an over night flight, but that's the chance taken in economy seating."
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "The staff was friendly, the available entertainment was good, and the seats were reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Our final connecting flight was late because the plane and the crew had not yet arrived at our airport before we were supposed to start boarding. The airline did not announce this until we were scheduled to start boarding. We had to go to a different gate and wait nearly two more hours for our flight to depart."
Cons: "No entertainment. No WiFi. Lots of dissappointed people."
Cons: "No screens at all for a 5 hour flight. No charging outlets. Terrible flight comfort."
Cons: "Employees I understand that sometimes they see a lot of people and it can get overwhelming with the job but giving good attitude it’s a most."
Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."
Pros: "Modern aircraft."

Pros: "Free movie. Informative announcements - friendlier than usual. They told us we were going to take off an hour late due to bad weather in Philly, but it turned out to be only 1/2 hour, and we arrived only 15 minutes late than scheduled. Not so bad."
Cons: "The seat seemed a little lumpy or uneven. I usually don't purchase meals, but thought I would this time. However, meals weren't available."
Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Purser Rockland Albrecht and his crew went out of their way to make our over night flight BA as comfortable as possible. Found us better seats and checked in to see that all was well on a busy flight. Service has certainly improved!"
Cons: "Flight was fine. Wanted to change ticket to allow more connection time between DCA and JFK and the first two sales representative sucked. I considered never flying American again. On board crew was great."
Pros: "Excellent Travel"
Pros: "All...mainly Luis, one of the on board flight attendants, in charge of pampering us with excelent attention, in the most minor details of food preparation , always pain attention to our needs and Confort."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about On this trip, wich departed Kate due to bad weather in Miami, due to heavy rain adn storm, and in spite of that, the flight arrived just a few minutes behind schedule."
Pros: "That it actually happen. Poor communications from British Airways and American Airlines."
Pros: "Arrived and left on time, something that really counts!"
Cons: "I checked in in Miami airport 12 hs before leaving. I was told by the fake friendly attendsnt that our seats , my husband’s snd mine, were separated. When asked to see if wevcould bd placed together she sarcastically commented that we had bought our flight through expedia and if we had dome it directky with AA we might have been together. Shame on her comment! AA offers their flights to many companies snd I now wonder if her comment is true, which makes me consider next time I choose an airline. In Buenos Aires when We checked in something similar happened and we could not book our seats the day before bcause they were all taken . The answer was if we wanted a better seat we’d have to pay because only back seats are available in economy and AA waits forbthose whi pay first and only then they”ll give us a seat. I”ve travelled several times with AA and feel the service is not worth the money I pay for it. The food on our flight back to BA was not good st all. However , I have to point out that all my flights BA to N Y, N Y to Mia and Mia BA left on time. On the whole it was good but I believe AA cares onñy about money and I feel disappointed"
Pros: "We made great time!! Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Airplanes are small and that middle seat is a killer for your neck but crew and making good time made up for it!!"
Pros: "We got to our destination safely, and American provided us with extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Service was curt and there was only phone-based entertainment."
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Pros: "The crew was sensational. Everyone really loved working for American, which tells me it's an employee sensitive and supportive company, and that is reflected in their attitude which is what makes my trip so pleasant. I love the darkening windows - great for daytime flying back from Europe when the whole plane becomes tranquil! Food was very good on this flight! Pilot spoke very clearly and was very informative."

Cons: "Checkin Personal It was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "The food and entertainment were adequate, and the pilot did a good job of communicating the status of our delay."
Cons: "Takeoff was 2 hours delayed because we were waiting for the first officer. Surely this could have been anticipated and resolved earlier. The crew was inappropriately familiar with the passengers. We are not friends, and I prefer a bit of professional distance. The seats are designed for VERY tall people; my feet were swinging, as were those of everyone in my row. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."

Pros: "The cordial treatment by the crew members"
Cons: "Not enough air conditioning, it was too warm on both flights. The foid could be better"
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "I STRONGLY dislike how the airline acts as if they are the immigration and they demanded that I buy a very expensive plane ticket to show that I would be leaving Argentina within 3 months. There are so many expats in Buenos Aires and they all buy tickets in Argentina to go to Uruguay within 3 months. Upon showing the immigration of Argentina my USA passport at the entry, they have NEVER asked me for any kind of proof that I would be leaving within 3 months. At first I started to purchase a ticket to Uruguay by boat and the attendant even asked me the website of the boat because she told me that these problems come up all the time for expats going to Argentina for longer than 3 months. You are ONLY AN AIRLINE. YOU ARE NOT THE IMMIGRATION OF ARGENTINA. Having this said, I never plan to fly Avianca again."
Cons: "Not on time, no entertainment system, little space"
Pros: "I was so comfortable I slept - I never sleep while traveling"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "The crew and all employees were very nice and did their best to ensure that my travels went smoothly. The flight was not so comfortable but I didn't mind much. Over all good flight"
Pros: "That the pilot got us home safely."
Cons: "Honestly I am not a big fan of AA. I made a mistake booking my flight but couldn't change it because it was going to cost an arm and a leg. The staff are rude and don't try to help you. It's just a job for them to get by and it shows. Many including myself isn't big fans of AA. I wish this airline gets bought out by Southwest who understands value and elite customer service. They don't charge every little thing like American. I hope soon they can fly into Colorado Springs."
