Cons: "No entertainment system even in 1rst class"
Cons: "Boarding was not smooth. They got me and my son mixed up as we have same name."
Cons: "The flight left three hours late while the crew was waiting for an oxygen tank to arrive. We were boarded onto the plane after it was nearly an hour and a half late, then waited in out cramped seats for another hour and a half as we continued to wait for the same piece of equipment. At one point a Delta employee announced over the plane's PA system that we'd be getting vouchers to compensate us for this absurd delay, but there was no explanation of how to claim those vouchers."

Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Super quick"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "We didn't get our seat assignment until we got to the gate. Attendant said it was because tickets bought too close to take off don't get to pick seats, but we bought our tickets about three weeks before. Also, my boyfriend and I sat in a full row while the row in front of us only had one person. It would've made more sense to put that person in one of our seats and us in that row to give four people more space instead of just one."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine . Just like ALL fights these days."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "Cheking was easy. Service was excellent. Flight was on time and got to New York 20 mins before time"
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
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: "Small cubicles are pretty comfortable but a little cramped . No they are upgrading their business class to larger "suites" and that will be good . The food is good but nothing to write home about . Your payment system works well but as usual there is a somewhat limited library."
Cons: "Hello allow upgrades to first class if they're available even when the flight takes off -on my flight in to Atlanta the pump three people up to first class and love them to sit in on my flight home to sit still empty what's up with that ?"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Wi-go didn't really work- crew was unpleasant. We upgraded to first class we were never offered a drink. One of the flight attendants keep using the restrokm"
Cons: "Access to LGA has become too problematic due to the construction. We will use other airports on our future trips to NY"
Pros: "Flight was earlier than scheduled. Crew was good."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was 30 min. No complaints except for the guy who didn't wear his mask."
Pros: "Everyone from the TSA agent at gpt to the gate agents and airplane staff were very rude."
Cons: "Just being helpful and friendly."
Pros: "No one within 6 feet of me."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Not run late, have entertainment on board and provide better snacks."
Cons: "When you buy basic economy they put you in zone 9 for boarding. When i checked in online, they didnt even give me and my wife seats together."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless, crew and flight attendants were awesome."
Cons: "The aircraft itself seemed dated. Very limited seat adjustment options, considering I was in First Class"
Cons: "They cancelled two of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again."
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of another flight before ours and there was poor communication."
Cons: "The flight attendants were very polite. Both of us are blind, and they told us the information we needed – how far away is the nearest exit row. Otherwise they treated us like everyone else!"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable - period. I do not have any type of back problem but I was sore after that flight."
Cons: "Sat on the ramp for an hour with no A/C, no water. Jaded crew. Not good overall."
Pros: "flight took off exactly on time & arrived on time"
Pros: "Almost nothing."
Cons: "Communication in delays (we ended up being delayed for 13 hours in incremental delays), poor planning, lack of knowledge at the operations level around how long crew has worked, boarded the plane then unboarded the plane as the pilot decided he wanted tea, staff unempathetic and dismissive"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Food, staff and entertainment was good. However, the touch screen on one of our systems did not work, and had to use the remote control."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms, and the one on our side got dirty fast. Also, give yourself lots of EXTRA time to get through the airport in Madrid. It takes forever to get out to the gate, and you have to go through Security, Immigration and sometimes a second more intense security (which we did). If you need to get your VAT refund on purchases, add at least ONE hour. 30 minutes to get the approval stamp in one line, and 30 minutes in another line to get your refund."
Pros: "Nothing much but the crew made up for some of it."
Cons: "ORD and the roads approaching nothing short of a nightmare. Chicago should be embarrassed by the whole experience at ORD."
Cons: "It's was my kids first time fying and no entertainment. Wi-Fi didn't work. And the kandng was a bit scary."
Cons: "Entirely too crowded."
Pros: "Because he flight wasn’t full, the seat next to me wasn’t occupied, giving me a bit more space."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight was delayed almost two hours."
Cons: "Seating is bad, one pays for the tickets then he has to pay for the seat seperraitly only the middle seat comes with the tickets."
Pros: "New economy extra for those of us with elite FF status was awesome and made a long flight comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system on these planes need to be updated. It's really unacceptable today to have everyone forced to watch the same movie in the ceiling, forgot about pausing for toilet breaks. This one they showed one movie and then we were forced to endure snippets and NBC shows that I can't imagine anyone watching. What happened to the second movie? They supposedly had entertainment that you could watch on your phone or tablet, but it was only tv shows as well?!"
Pros: "Uneventful, on time, boarded fast."
Cons: "Just an observation, as soon as the plane stops and the fasten seatbelt sign turns off, the first people to stand are all the older white men on the flight. Never noticed that before but I'm sure it's true on most flights. Check your privilege."
Cons: "1 hour delay leaving. I’m flight entertainment didn’t work. 10 minute arrival delay because the alley to the terminal was blocked."
Cons: "The A319 outfitted in this way is to freaking tight!!! There is not even close to enough leg room for an average sized American male. I'm no taller than six foot and not overweight. You must fix this issue. I will look for other carriers whenever possible."
Pros: "economy plus was worth the money"
Cons: "Flight attendants horrible refused to serve drinks or snacks due to "turbulence" But there was no turbulence. Then when passengers complained they served water only and splashed it into cups on the trays instead of pouring it into cups and handing the cups to the passengers. Nasty people."
Cons: "Took off late"
Cons: "The changing of terminals in Philadelphia but was not the airlines fault."
Pros: "The replacement crew and ground attendants get thumbs up for trying their best to help."
Cons: "Captain intentionally “timed out”. It was 3 1/2 hours delayed finding a replacement crew. And then the plane timed out for maintenance and we needed to switch planes. In all, we “boarded” 3 times before we finally departed."
Pros: "Crew were very efficient and kind."
Cons: "It was very cold the entire flight."
Pros: "Everything else was Fine on the flight..."
Cons: "...But having HBO NC-17 available on a public flight is uncalled for. Even though screens employ technology limit viewing from the side, the seats behind can see everything. We were thankful none of our kids were on this flight. Gratuitous sex scenes in abundance. No thanks American."
Cons: "We didnt managed to get on that flight due to the delay from precious flight from philadelphia"
Cons: "flight from Philly to Ithaca was late also"
Pros: "Big comfy plane"
Cons: "The orange juice"
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."
Cons: "I was expecting to be on an JAL flight but it wasn't JAL and was operated by american airlines and I feel ripped off."
Cons: "Ran out of food for purchase and Delayed flight"
Cons: "We purchased seats and they changed them without telling us so we picked new ones. Well guess what, we get to the airport and the same thing. I was seated at the front of the plane and my fiancé was at the back. Luckily a nice gentleman switched seats with me and we were able to sit together but it was the last seats that did not recline on an 8 hour flight. We will never fly American again. Their customer service offered no help and was extremely rude to us."
Cons: "Delayed an hour. Don't think I've had a single American flight on time. No food or movies on international flight. No blankets or pillows."
Pros: "Great service by agents at gate and crew. Nice, new aircraft. Entertainment system was also very good."
Cons: "Had plenty of leg room in Exit Row, but seats were very narrow."
Cons: "The worst experience I ever had in thirty years of flying. I missed my flight because even though I got to LAX two hours before the flight, I had to wait on the baggage check for two and a half hours. The attendants were texting and talking and not servicing the passengers. When I told American attendants and supervisors that I was going to miss my flight unless they got me through they were clueless and didn't care about me or any of the passengers. The entire American staff were the most disorganized and careless flight personnel I have ever seen. Them they put me on a standby flight, where I was number eight and five minutes later was number eighteen, so I missed that, too. My wife is one of the top Public Relations people in Los Angeles and we both have tweeted and posted on social media extensively about this horrendous experience. I require a full refund from American Airlines for my airfare, and if I don't receive it from you will take you to court. --Eric Red"
Cons: "Paid a premium for extra leg room at bulkhead only to have a continuous stream of adults and small children passing through kicking or tripping over our feet."
Pros: "The free mivies, the leg room was good also"
Cons: "Flight left late and yge long wait for the baggage. Too long!"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seat very uncomfortable. American doesn't let you standby for earlier flight- charges 75 dollars Gate agent wasn't helpful-pointed in general direction of kiosk to pay the 75 dollars Flight attendants passed up our entire row for drinks"
Cons: "There was a problem which they could repair before the flight. We were in the plain on ground for 2 hours delay, not even offered a drink, we saw the crew drink. The service was bad, they treated the passengers with terrible disrespect. Very frustrating and disappointing !!!!"
Pros: "Food was great"
Pros: "Very courteous crew!"
Cons: "Very long wait, though good communication. Rather bumpy flight."
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class"
Pros: "I would love to take off and make it to my destination next time instead of sit in the airport for 8 hours strung along by the employees saying the plane will be fixed."
Pros: "Every thing is with time No delay"
Cons: "Overall good thanks"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "How much do United Engineers get paid? They can’t figure out how to make the last row recline? And why was this particular flight not able to let me select a seat?"
Pros: "I did not like anything abut the trip. I guess if I have to come up with something good it could be that the trip ended without physical death... emotional and psychological death, to be sure, but not physical."
Cons: "The outrageous, unconscionable, customer unfriendly lack of leg room, general torture-like comfort levels of the seating, surly airline employees, vomit comet style landing, and spending enough time driving around the tarmac we probably could have just drove the plane there, skipping flying all together."
Cons: "The United leg SFO-EWR was 3 jours delayed so we called SAS which changed us to an Icelandair flight. But at that flight they say we never had seats. By then SAS has closed and won’t help us. Also, we find out from United agent that SAS wrecked our booking so no one can help us. Worse than worthless"
Cons: "Delayed just like my first leg. Will never fly United again."
Pros: "Fast boarding process."
Pros: "On time and I was the last passenger to get in."
Cons: "Due to complex connection routes in LA I was able to be the last passenger. There was no time to eat lunch. However, there was no food served in the plane even though it was started at lunch time and landed in Houston in dinner time."
Pros: "There was some initial confusion on what gate we were at and when everyone could start boarding. Once that was cleared up boarding seemed to be pretty smooth. The crew mostly seemed friendly and helpful. It was nice to have the blankets and pillows on everyone’s chairs in case someone was cold. That way they didn’t have to wait for a flight attendant to get a blanket or pillow."
Cons: "I did not like the food options so much, I think there may have been some alternatives but those alternatives were not clear. Also,the tv screens can sometimes be difficult to get out and put away in the exit rows."
Cons: "Worst crew, bad food, small personal space. Cheapskate company."
Pros: "Very easy to do on-line"
Cons: "My United Membership was not reflected in this trip"
Pros: "The ease of booking the flight and forgetting it until the day I left was awesome."
Pros: "Poor internet going. No internet or streaming returning."
Cons: "Poor internet going. No internet or streaming returning."
Cons: "Under staffed. After a long friday in New York I was looking forward to a glass of wine. You would think 2.5 hr flights could handle serving everyone drinks."
Pros: "Crew. Club soda. Safe landing."
Cons: "Pay for movie. Delayed plane that landed 10 minutes after boarding for connecting flight which was last flight of the night."

Cons: "Delays and accommodations"
Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Could not get the entertainment app to work."
Pros: "I was insulted by your staff. From Tech support to Face to Face Tech."
Cons: "I confirmed my flight. I had a 3 hour delay in CHI. Having a 90 minute drive and an hour flight. I decided to skip my first flight and just head to the connecter in CHI. My whole flight was canceled as a result. The front desk guy was smug and extremly rude. The Tech support and this representative offered 2 different "Facts" on what could be done. As a result I was forced to pay for a hotel and miss a day of work. All because I wanted to spend extra time with my family. I have nothing possitive to say about your product and as a business owner Im embarrassed for you."
Cons: "Food, seats, entertainment, crew. I did not like it at all, compare to Lufthansa."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Cons: "The United Terminal at Newark is hideous and United should be ashamed to be associated with this poor quality. The airport is a construction zone at best. The aircraft is tiny, cramped and inadequate."
Pros: "Nice CSR people in AZO"
Pros: "Overall it was a great trip. We left a little late a both connections, but arrived on time so that's good."
Cons: "The only thing two things I'd change would be our plane arriving back the Kalamazoo on time. It wasn't even in Kalamazoo very long. The other thing I'd change would be having the two people helping with boarding speak more clearly on the intercom. I seriously couldn't understand much of what they were saying. Also, there's not much select for pop in your store."

Pros: "Getting where I was going."
