Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew did a mediocre job of keeping us informed as to the delay of takeoff."
Cons: "There was some type of mechanical or electric issue that delayed our flight by 30 minutes or so, which is unwelcome for a flight that late at night."
Cons: "Informing that the flight would delayed by three hours ahead of time would have been amazing. Instead of extending the delayed time every 45 min making us miss all the other opportunities to fly out"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight was on time."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and seats were comfortable"
Pros: "Entertainment was good and there was a choice of food."
Cons: "The crew sucked."
Cons: "Left seven hours later than I anticipated Some passengers were rebooked on earlier flights while others told to go with same flight flying later Very very disorganized"
Pros: "Met expectations; except for treatment of an oversized passanger, which turned out good in the end."
Cons: "The entertainment system was out completely for the whole flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it ended up being delayed for 4 hours and we had to take a cab to Detroit to catch our flight to Europe"
Pros: "Crew was great, just not very much room."
Cons: "Larger seat room."
Pros: "suites in business class were nice but doors were not functioning very smooth"
Cons: "The plane was very hot during flight and could not be adjusted according to the crew. Exactly the same flight last month was much more comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding took a long time"
Cons: "Seat didnt recline and very tight between passenger seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Wait time because of Atlanta crowding.Re:hurricaine?"

Pros: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"
Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"
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."
Cons: "No issues. Smooth ride. Decent service."
Pros: "At least the flight wasn't cancelled?"
Cons: "Five minutes before the scheduled boarding time, it was announced the flight was delayed by 1 hour 25 minutes. I am almost certain this was not weather-related, according to flight trackers. I understand that weather delays are essentially out of airlines' hands. However, if the delay is caused for other reasons like "mechanical issues", or any other errors or miscommunications within the airline itself, then they should be held liable. My time is worth money, so any delays not weather-related should result in a reasonable refund based on the duration of the delay. An apology doesn't placate customers' frustration and inconvenience due to delays."
Cons: "Super noisy due to being in the last row! Couldn’t even watch a movie. Bathrooms were so dirty and door didn’t close properly. Air vents didn’t reach to aisle seat. Awful."
Cons: "Retrofitted entertainment system under the seats made it very uncomfortable. It was hard to even stretch your legs."
Pros: "Easy boarding, Love to the sad that you were not nickeled and dimed while in flight they provided wonderful food and snacks. The crew so friendly and very hard working constantly there to please the passengers also having Free movies made the 5 and a 1/2 hour flight go very quickly. I fly across country frequently I will always fly Delta."
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Pros: "Flight Crew were friendly and attentive. Boarding is well organized."
Cons: "My itinerary was changed multiple times, most importantly impacting my arrival time into Victoria BC. This flight was changed twice, the first time I received an email notification telling me the new flight was an hour later. When I got my check-in email 24 hours before my trip was to begin I noticed the arrival time for my return flight had been changed again, this time arriving another hour later. I received no notice for this change. Other than a shuttle service, there are no late night public transit options from the Victoria airport into town--a 25 minute drive. I was left with 10 minutes between the late arrival of my flight to claim my bags, clear customs and try to make the last shuttle. I specifically purchased my ticket so I would have plenty of time to make this connection. I missed it and wound up having to take a $60 (not including tip) taxi to get into town. Changing my itinerary to arrive 2 hours later without notifying me is unacceptable. I've never had any pot-purchase itinerary changes happen to me on Alaska Airlines, which also has regular service between Seattle and Victoria. I'm inclined to make sure I always use them from now on."

Pros: "On a one hour trip no much to say, understandably no food or bererage service. Got me from here to there quickly. thanks You!"
Cons: "What I didn't like was two idiots behind me that talked loudly for the whole flight and it being a late flight it would have been good to catch a nap. Nothing to do with the flight but really they talked for the whole time they were sitting across the aisle from each other."
Cons: "Usable to hear gate agent announcement in LAX"
Pros: "Great service for a short commute trip."

I Forgot to bring my iPad Pro with me on this trip...and had no adequate access to any entertainment content."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "Nothing really: standard AA service"
Pros: "On time and great crew"
Pros: "Lisa I. was one of the best flight attendants I have ever observed. She enjoys being on the airplane with people who need help, comfort, to complain about anything. She was all over the airplane and refused a tip when I tried to insist she accept it. She said, “I have been doing this for a long time, I am tipped by seeing passengers having a pleasant flight.” I had goosebumps and the two women to my left and right were also impressed by her professionalism. I pray that Lisa is working on my flight home!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing, even with 30 to 45 MPH winds, the plane was gentle. The passenger next to me was scared. Lisa said to let her know if she needed anything, the woman was fine the whole flight. Lisa came by with extra snacks and she smiled and said she was doing well!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"

Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Cons: "No delays"

Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."

Pros: "Good free mobile entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was unbelievably hot the entire flight. Air vents did not cool the plane at all. We were all sweating the entire time."
Cons: "90 mins late leaving LA caused us to miss connection from Brisbane to Darwin now delayed additional 12 hrs. LA Qantas rep lied and said every 2 hrs there were flights from Brisbane to Darwin and not to worry. Truth is only one per day."

Pros: "Very sweet and dedicated crew"
Cons: "Terrible dinner dish "pasta w pesto", flavorless. No TV on the seat Old seats. No leg room."
Pros: "Service was fine and the crew members were professional. Everything you would expect in a standard flight"

Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants!!"
Cons: "We boarded an hour late with no explanation then left even later because we were so far back on the run way. Also the last checking me in was not the kindest! Nor was the man who scanned my ticket to go on the plane."
Pros: "Grest staff"
Cons: "Thought the first row seating would provide extra leg room which the reservation page said it would and we paid extra for the seats - not so. it also felt quite claustrophobic with a panel within a short distance of our faces. We had upgraded for better seats but it turns out the seating wasn't better at all. The flight home in seats much further back were MUCH more comfortable. I'm thinking the airline shouldn't book the front seats by the panel as 'better' for the extra price as they were definitely not."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Cons: "Seat broken tray table broken reading light did not work 15 total hours in the air and 7 of them the movie system did not work Paid for upgraded seat and did not get one - got moved to a standard seat."

Cons: "No room, small seats and no food"
Cons: "Where to begin? The pilot suggested we would "probably miss our connecting flight" but not to worry because he would be "moving quickly" through the air. Missed my connecting flight.

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and big enough for large people. That crew and flight were on time and pleasant."

Pros: "Service was great!!!"
Pros: "Rebooked me a nonstop flight to my destination!"
