I gate checked my carry on bag. Upon deboarding the luggage was on the top shelf of a cart since we didn't have a jet way. I asked the man standing by the cart if he could help me get it off. He told me that i could get it off myself. I'm 72 yrs old. A little help would of been appreciated.

Pros: "Terrible seats! It keeps getting worse."
Cons: "Timing of leaving the airport! It was delayed and I missed my international flight"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Crew was great, comfortable and clean"
Cons: "One plane didn't have TV screens on the backs of the seats, which would have been nice for the 1 hr 45 min flight"
Cons: "Unacceptable delays"
Cons: "Delays due to Democrats not making deal"

Pros: "Original flight delayed by more than 2 hours. Rescheduled and got to Bos with a layover"
Cons: "Delta rescheduled me automatically and I woudl not have found out if I did not call their re-booking center."
Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"
Cons: "Could not get seats assigned until day check of check in. We did get seat together. Asked clerk said no booked . Seat did not recline. Saw crew had one row for themselves."
Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."

Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."
Cons: "Customs officials are incredibly un-helpful and slow. I almost missed the next flight because of how slow was that part. I hope Delta can speak up for the passengers, because we cannot express that to these rude people."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."
Pros: "The snack was nice."
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "Online app to watch movies made the trip fly by. Pun intended"
Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was friendly and we were on time."
Pros: "The baby"
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Pros: "Easy ride back home."
Cons: "Limited options for closed captions video. Any announcement was not mentioned in writing."
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Pros: "It was quick and on time relatively smooth flights with little turbulance."
Cons: "Economy seats are too small you literally can't move your elbow without hitting the person next to you. And there was no point at which we weren't all touching legs."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and been nice."
Cons: "I didn't like that my delta studio screen did it work. I had to find other ways to pass the time for 5 hours"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "The plane was not so new or good"
Cons: "The plane and the atention"
Pros: "Able to watch an interview. Then part of a movie which makes the time fly."
Cons: "Late departure. Late arrival. So I got my car and landed in terrible traffic. Which I had hoped to avoid."
Cons: "Late taking off"
Pros: "Quick, efficient boarding. Good crew. Comfortable seats. On schedule."
Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"
Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"
Pros: "The crew, as always, were fantastic."
Cons: "Being delayed for hours because of bad weather 5 days ago is unfathomable. Delta needs to fix the IT scheduling issues causing the frequent delays."
Pros: "GRU to ATL to LEX - all was fine. The plane from GRU to ATL was one of the nicer jets I have ridden in. The ratings above reflect my overall trip of going to Sao Paulo and returning to Lexington, even though the first part had to be re-booked on United."
Cons: "LEX to ATL to GRU did NOT happen because the LEX flights were delayed to the point of missing the ATL connection. While Delta re-booked me on United, my flight arrived 3 hours later than scheduled (so transportation plans had to change), my bag did not successfully move from the Delta flight to the United flight (and was thus delayed in getting to GRU) AND once the bag was received, 4 shirts had been stolen. While a delay/theft claim has been filed with United, this could all have been avoided if the Delta flights had been on time."
Pros: "Ease in finding another connecting flight get to Miami when our connection was delayed."
Cons: "Time between connection should be 2+ hours"

There was already a group forming a line at zone 4 for a good 15mins and another group created another line just 5mins before boarding and the 1st group had to re-queue. A few of us voiced out to the floor crew but they did nothing. Earphones. Could be supplied first since the flight is suffisent for a movie.

Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"

Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."

No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"

Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Pros: "Not time departure and cabin crew were effective and efficient."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Very good flight.I recommend it to everyone."
Cons: "The food was inedible--from the chopped RAW potatoes to the slimey, tiny bit of pale turkey. It must have left a foul taste for the crew, too, since they were cold and unwelcoming."
Pros: "The crew was very nice , offering us often drinks and snacks There was touch screen to each passenger the flight passed faster thanks to the films ... especially i loved the idea of waching a film that took place in new york city when our destinations was new york . Thank you"

Anyways on time and excellent service

Considering I cancelled the flight 2 months ago -- I would have to say the communication was poor -- since I continue to received updates. I say poor since Kayak seems not to want to respond to me to reschedule a flight -- they hold my voucher -- so I can not do it on my own --

Will never Book anything with kayak Again I was denied to board the flight and call both British Airways and kayak both didn't help and told my money is gone and will not get a reschedule flight or my money back I have to repurchase an emergency ticket today with delta and was able to board the flight with no issues now I need a refund. I will advise everybody to Stay away from Kayak and British Airways and American Airlines they messed up my trip and cost unexpected $2500 that I didn't have it in my budget

Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"
Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Food was pretty good."
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "The service in the Business Class section on British Airways was phenomenal"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Cons: "This is a 3.5 hour flight, early in the morning (meaning people are up hours in advance). No snacks and no water are a terrible idea. It seems that this is something like a strategy for trips to/from Athens. It is not a small/fast flight by any means and water should be offered and not charged at ridiculously high prices. Not enough space for a slightly taller people. Emergency exit seats which have more legroom were priced extra and way expensive. PS: it was too cold in that plane."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Food was not bad"
Cons: "Service was incredibly slow Seats were tight Forced to check laptop despite this not being a standard with any other airline for the same route"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Pros: "20 minutes late taking off and made up a few minutes. They had run out of sandwiches that we liked so we didn't bother with buying food all in all I'm so food so so trip"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and staff wasn't actively being helpful with information. Got absolutely nothing to drink/eat on the plane-not even a glass of water! The flight crew was just ok, no one "stood out" as good or excellent. Again, nothing about this flight made me want to definitely fly British Airways again."
Pros: "Great to sit in upper deck"
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Cons: "No one informed me that I need a visa to UK even if am going just a transit. And when I called them they said we mentioned that you should call the embassy. And am sure no one calls the embassy after they booked a flight. I missed the flight they didn’t let me travel. And didn’t refunded me only the taxes. At least refund me the comming back ticket !"
Cons: "There should be an attendant at the entrance to the boarding area. Too many people try to line up and to into the queue before they need to. Either they don't understand the language or the procedures. There should be people walking around to answer questions on boarding procedures or better announcements in several languages. the Asians were extremely confused as were the Germans we encountered. They never announced for people with disabilities to get ahead of others. It was a big "casino" as the Italians say when everyone charges the boarding area. People could be put in groups according to where their seating is, making it easier for all."
Cons: "Very noisy plane"
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "Very attentive, kind caring"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Would have like wifi so I could plan my trip and do some business."
Cons: "My luggage then didn't make it to Ibiza in time because it got stuck in London due to my short layover. If BA can't figure out how to get the luggage transferred within that short of a period, they should not offer flights that close to each other. Secondly, I left a really nice down pillow and bag on my flight from London to Ibiza and I checked the lost in found at the Ibiza airport"
Pros: "Crew was very good and very attentive. Dinner was of good quality for airline food. Both options sounded good and the chicken curry was excelent. Flight took off late beacuse the luggage of passengers who did not make the flight had to be removed, but managed to arrive only a few minutes late."
Cons: "It was just too cramped. It didn't help the the gentleman sitting next to me was large enough to be spilling over into my seat. The seats were not very comfortable either. The movie selection was a bit disappointing compared to Iberia Airways, and the screen quality was not so great. I also didn't see usb ports to charge portable elctronics, which was disapointing."
Cons: "I asked for coffee. Paid 4 pounds for it, it was AWFUL. not brewed, no taste, bitter, no cream available to add to it. If you charge such prizes, you better offer decent coffee. I can get late or capuchino at Starbucks for less and far better quality."
Pros: "I appreciated to entertainment choices. Also the crew came through with water and fruit juice frequently, very nice"
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Everyone was awesome"
Cons: "The staff was awesome"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Bording was quick"
Cons: "Crew was serious, absolutely not happy to smile Genuine smile is really appreciated whenmeeting custimers. Food trolley/ drinks came to customers and before we could react it was gone. When we asked them back they were not very happy looking . Seats we not comfortable."
Pros: "Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I was offered free tap water. No way to treat passengers."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."
Pros: "This is how a flight sould be lots of leg room the seat went back ,the flight was from Heathrow unlike other airlines that fly from the worst airport I have ever been to that's Luton"
Cons: "Noting"
Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
Cons: "The service . In general it can be better"
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional, despite plane being absolutely packed."
Cons: "Food was really horrendous. Better off sticking with basics like frit, cheese, crackers, sandwiches, etc. If I pay extra for early seat selection, don't guilt me into switching with someone who didnt, because they didnt have enough leg room and had a bad leg. Situation was such that I couldnt refuse. So ended up paying extra for a really crappy seat. Seating chart should indicate where the metal boxes are that affect leg room in certain seats so those with a disability aren't seated there."

Flight boarded, departed, and landed right on time. Great communication from the crew. I really like the planes with the phone holders. Only thing that I disliked is the bathroom in the middle right between seats which can be smelly!

The food was ice cold and poorly selected. Staff was pleasant as usual

Cons: "Some of the Crew members were not covering their nose with their face masks"
Cons: "The cabin was hot for the whole flight"
Cons: "We sat in boarding in about 90-100 degree heat for over an hour. Everyone is drenched in sweat and should have never boarded."
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick and on time. Transfer in Phoenix was no problem. Luggage arrived OK."
Cons: "Seating is too small and too close to next rows. Unhappy with having to pay for seat assignments and checked bag while watching gate agents refuse to enforce overhead bag size limits."
Cons: "Again the layover was 16 hours-AWFUL."
Cons: "Small plane, forced to valet checkin carry on luggage, no drinks or snacks :/"
Cons: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"
Pros: "The only good thing about the flight was the crew."
Cons: "I’m surprised there weren't chickens and goats flying with us. The seats were worn out and ratty. There was no where to charge a phone or electronics. No in seat tv screen so was forced to watch the tiny overhead screen of terrible tv shows and mediocre movies. I prepaid for a seat a head of time which was given to someone else. Also quite a bit of heavy turbulence the entire flight. Not ideal for an 8 hr flight. I’m lucky I brought an external charger and some xanax. Never again"
Pros: "After the initial delay, the female desk agent got us on another connecting flight without a problem. Second flights attendant was also great."
Cons: "They boarded the plane, only to tell us they had to de-ice, which is understandable. However, after waiting 20 min for the de-icing that never came, they made us get back off the plane because of mechanical issues. The captain/pilot was rude to the woman working the desk over the radio, to the point where she had to leave the desk and go speak to him in person (she knew we could hear everything.) That conversation is also how the whole line of people was informed that then knew about this mechanical issue since the night before, and chose not to fix it before boarding all of us. After getting to Philadelphia later than expected, we were forced to pay for hotel food that was horrible and overpriced. Only to then have our plane be delayed AGAIN because of mechanical issues, again the pilot not giving much information to the attendant she was faced by a room of 40 angry people and had no answers. The departure time slowly crawled out longer, and the only reason I knew was because of having the American app. Information/communication on all ends was poor. I usually fly Allegiant, which is notoriously “cheap,” and I’ve never had an experience like this. Happy my boyfriend has flown with American before and knew to give us an extra day so we didn’t miss the wedding we paid $800 in airline tickets to attend. Just disappointed."
Pros: "I love it"
Pros: "Routine flight. No problems noted."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival and good flight all around."
Pros: "the gate attendant was very nice as my husband was stuck in security line (I have Pre check) He barely made it, but the guy never made me feel uncomfortable or rushed. He was kind, calm and reassuring."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed to have a chip on her shoulder from the moment we stepped on the flight. I had a broken foot and it was difficult for me to fit my boot and personal item under the seat. Rather than assisting me, she barked commands and quickly walked away as I attempted to address the situation. - poor attitude - failed to ask if I wanted a biscuit but simply slapped one down on my tray table (I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE) - American really needs to catch up with the other airlines and offer a GF option to those of us who have immune disorders. - no WiFi"
Pros: "The crew interacts with people serving great food and drinks constantly. The seats were very comfortable with lots of leg space. There are lots of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "We were delayed because of the weather which couldn’t be helped."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The staff wouldn't except my registration for my support animal!!"
Pros: "The complementary beverage was a welcomed surprise!"
Pros: "The crew was lovely. Really nice, and did a wonderful job with the cart service."
Cons: "We ended up being deleyed about 30 minutes, in damp weather. It's not like it was snowing. Not sure why it took so long. B/c of baggage charges now everyone brings a carry on. This seems to slow the process of boarding as know passengers are asked multiple times to check baggage (for free, which is the one nice thing) before boarding b/c the overheads will be too full. Group 6 which I was in seemed like it was just the rest of the plane. Super busy, took me forever to get to my seat all the way in the back. Why don't airlines reverse board? People sitting in the back should board first. I feel like this would save so much time."
Pros: "Nothing to like. If I could give them 0 stars I would"
Cons: "Tight connection from our previous flight yet the counter folks were rude and rushed us. My daughter is obviously 7 months pregnant. Because our connecting flight left milwaukee over an hour late, we had no time to even grab a sandwich, no problem we will buy food on the plane. Wrong! The food is was gone so quickly that by the time they got to us, they were out of everything. Oh did I mention we also had 3 children ages 2, 7, and 9. Oh yes and the entertainment? Small screens mounted on the ceiling of the plane. How about updating your equipment?? Plane was old. No USB to charge your phone and stream from their App. Terrible. We own a 2nd home in Maui and travel there twice per year. Looking at other options."
Cons: "I am STILL in Chicago :("
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The plane was from 1970 and I mean that. A 10 hour flight with only main cabin tvs, no wifi or outlets? Atleast hand out ipads. The food was also absolutely disgusting. I know it's airplane food, but what a horrible first impression to anyone coming over to the US for the first time and they eat BBQ chicken that tastes like dirt."
Cons: "Me 6’ 200 lb sitting in middle seat next to somebody that needed 2 seats for self (pls understand I’m not unsensetive nor prejudice just stating a fact). I requested to sit in last row (of both sides of plane that were empty but attendant said sears reserved for attendants - 2)."
Cons: "I really did not like that I was unaware why I could not check in on my phone and then I get to the airport and the Alaska desk is closed. My phone just says the plane is sky west, me and the other workers at the airport had no idea what this meant. Very frustrating experience trying to check in, finally walker talkie a guy that new it was American. Frustrating I thought I would miss my flight, why not clearly state it's not an Alaska flight."
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and gave great service!"
Pros: "Good connection"
Cons: "No wifi or chargers or seatback entertainment"
Cons: "The tsa in chicago was very unorganized. The tsa workers were extremely rude."
Cons: "delay, then no sandwiches available for purchase onboard during a 3-hr evening flight"
Cons: "Rude staff, they changed our flight 2 times and did not offer a drink or food"
Pros: "Captain did his best to make up time"
Cons: "Flight was initially delayed an hour, then bumped to 30 minutes late."
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "On a 10+ hour flight that you're trying to stay awake for, some sort of entertaining is near mandatory. Neither mine nor my boyfriend's TV worked. Even after the crew reset the system twice, they still didn't work."
Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."
Cons: "Will never fly American again"
Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "Crew came by once with drinks, never came back through with food/snacks. Never came through with water, as they usually do later in this flight. They spent most of the time chatting in the galley."
Pros: "Movies and on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crazy uncontrolled child in row across from us."
Pros: "The crew was very apologetic"
Cons: "The fact that we were an hour and 45 minutes late leaving. I know they say weather was the cause and not their control, but every time...yes, every time I fly American there's a delay. Every time I've flown United I arrive early."
Cons: "Haven't taken it yet!"
Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"
Pros: "She was absolutely marvelous. So friendly and professional. A welcome change to most encounters with with AA employees."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and arrived about 1/2 hour early into MPS!!"

Pros: "The crew was great and really helped calm my nerves about flying."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable."
Cons: "The lady at baggage check-in was rude and persistent on not letting me board due to a slight fold in my passport. Other coworkers did not agree, and allowed me to proceed. She also spent 20 minutes in back searching for information while I waited and the line filled up. My luggage was also lost (the last to handle the luggage was this lady) and I needed to retrieve it 3 hours after my flight arrived."
Pros: "The crew was great. Trent was outstanding"
Cons: "This was a regional jet, and this flight segment was 3 hours. The seats seem to have a little more leg room than larger jets but much less cushioning, and the pitch/shape of the seat back was very uncomfortable. I could barely walk when we reached Houston."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was the best!"
Cons: "The weather."
Pros: "The pilot tried to make up lost time in the air."
Cons: "Due to regulations, our crew had to delay our flight 39 min. This was done the night before. There was no way we were going to make our connecting flight, but no one from United seemed to care. The crew from milwaukee to Houston was rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "We had a two hour weather delay and 4 gate changes. Had to unnecessarily walk from one gate to the next. Every time we got a. Texted updated we had a new gate number. Frustrating. Then the plane arrived from LaGuardia but there were no flight attendants so we had another 15 minute delay and nowhere to sit. Not happy"
Pros: "Departed / arrived on time, clean, good snack options."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic except I was a little squished; but I suppose that is to be expected on the economy flight. We did land later than expected but it ended up being just fine and I was able to connect to my next flight."
Pros: "the crew was great."
Cons: "quick flight. comfortable seats. lots of leg room"
Pros: "Nothing - missed flight because of bad info from Kayal"
