Cons: "Better options in economy for food"
Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"
Cons: "You shouldn't schedule a flight for a plane that is due to have scheduled maintenance. It's not like this should come as a surprise to you. Also, there was at least one over-served passenger on board who became loud and obnoxious, shouting obscenities."
Pros: "the video controller in the headrest of the seat ahead of me. you could see the flight pattern, speed, temperature outside and other specs, which were interesting."
Cons: "once again, the delta crew does not maintain their planes properly. during the taxi stage to get to the airway to lift off, there was a horrendous growling sound coming from the plane............seems like their hydraulic system is not maintained very well at all and it made a howling sound throughout the plane all the way to take off! we were wondering if there was something wrong with the plane."
Pros: "All was great"
Pros: "Comfortable and spacious seating. Quick and smooth flight."
Cons: "Since this was such a short flight, there wasn’t much to improve."
Cons: "Not cancelling our flight"
Pros: "Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!"

Pros: "Movies and snacks on board. Friendly staff"

The gate agent was unable or unwilling to explain when and how I would get my seat assignment and with what group I should board with. A passenger helped me. I am a frequent flyer, primarily AA, I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Entertainment did not work even though it was a quick flight we sat at the gate for a while which turned the flight into hour and a half."
Pros: "Great to have in flight TV"
Pros: "I loved the way that the flight attendants were able to sit my boyfriend and I together on our flights even though our seats weren't planned to be near each other. The available entertainment games, movies and tv shows were awesome to have!"
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "That one flight attendant brushed me off with a wave of her hand... SUPER RUDE!"
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Leg room was descent"
Cons: "Excessive delays. Was scheduled to leave CLT at 3:21 PM, then rescheduled to depart at 423; then waited on the tarmac to take off for about 45 mins total; didn't arrive in NYC until around 718 PM; very long day with Delta Airlines."
Cons: "no access to sky club"
Cons: "no food for Vegans. Like literally nothing besides a confused crew"
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy. My standard carry on luggage did not fit the over head compartment."
Cons: "Plane was hot but that seems common for these small planes during the summer."
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Cons: "No social distancing AT ALL. Flight was packed"
Pros: "plane on time"
Cons: "They need to stop selling the flights at full capacity"
Pros: "Seats felt thin"
Cons: "Americans lack of competence caused me to miss this floght"
Pros: "Plane had three delays. Apparently American mechanics are not allowed to strike so they have these fake or very slow mechanical issues."
Cons: "Be on time. We missed our overseas connection and had to buy new tickets to Italy"
Pros: "Hours late at both airports and no one offered to give a refund or help with the Uber I’m now going to have to take to get home."
Pros: "Booked week ago, expensive but seating was comfortable, crew first class, in economy."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. We paid for assigned seating for our almost 85 yo mom. And the change in flight no one asked for to get seated in the front of plane. Instead she was seated all the way in the back. It was physically exhausting for her."
Pros: "It was a great flight. It was on time, and the plane was clean and the stewardess was courteous"
Cons: "It was a great flight."
Pros: "Even thou flight was delayed we arrive at a decent time."

Pros: "I liked everything"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "My A/A flight, which was scheduled to get in after midnight, was delayed by over an hour with multiple gate changes."
Pros: "It started with a 2 hour delay. Then, when the plane finally got to Orlando, there was a smoke alarm going off. We had to wait another 30 minutes for that to be fixed. Then when we got on the plane there was a issue with the baggage and we sat again for another 30 minutes"
Cons: "Not one explaination, or consideration. The attendants were rude and the pilot didn’t even come on during the flight to say anything but signing up for a credit card. Bullshit."
Cons: "They left our laggage out in the rain at some point of our trip and the contents of our suitcases were soaked. Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Cons: "Delayed, poor info, no snacks, not even water. Lady at gate was rude. And unpleasant. Nobody kept us informed correctly and when we asked we were treated unkindly. Horrible experience with AA. Will avoid"
Pros: "Quick check in even though it was a full flight!"
Cons: "Only entertainment option is your own personal device but the WiFi is horrible! After finally connecting, I could not even get to the 2nd step which is simply going to this website to enjoy the entertainment. I even made sure I downloaded the app and it just did not work. So glad I had music on my phone and went to sleep."
Cons: "The flight from Miami to Sao Paulo was delayed, therefore, I lost the flight from Sao Paulo to Asunción, those from Latam did not give me any solution and they sent me to the people of American Airlines saying it was their fault. I traveled 3 hours through the whole airport and they did not give me any solution, no new flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Felt very uncomfortable on that seat me and my girlfriend. We got delayed before taking off And our first flight from SF to Miami we got delayed an hour after landing before exiting the plane!"
Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."
Pros: "The bathrooms were clean compared with other airlines."
Cons: "We selected seats together as a couple but the seats on the flight were separated. Customer service could not help but asked us to make arrangement with the person between us. The same seating arrangement happened on our return flight 18 days later. Once again was told nothing could be done. I really do not know why both flights the seat assigment were wrong when selected basic on the aircraft configuration. The airline is attempt to make the passenger to pay more for seats."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Entertainment sucks, food, better eat a 7 eleven, confort very very baf"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Pros: "The setup at Skyharbor airport in Phoenix is a joke. There is no rhyme or reason as to how they do things. There is no organization whatsoever. Nobody knows what they are doing. Agents are rude. They can’t figure out which gate flights are suppose to go out of."
Cons: "I didn’t like a single thing. The fact you pay extra money for a so-called choice seat and then you have to wait til more than half the plane is filled is a joke. It’s all about money w you ppl. Quit being so greedy and focus on customer service."
Pros: "Not much. Standard flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats, unintelligible announcements, battered by credit card promotions."
Pros: "Check-in staff very helpful"
Pros: "The 777-300 is a beauty. So spacious! Traveling in the main cabin of this plane feels like you're in first class compared to other planes. Great in-flight entertainment. Clear communication from captain and crew. Overall, the best plane ride I've had in the last 5 years."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed a little unorganized but not a huge deal."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Sounds like an ok airline if you fly 1st or business class. Don't be fooled by great reviews"
Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Pros: "flight was on time. Very friendly attendants. Plane was only 1 month old and was absolutely amazing. The personal entertainment system made a 9 hour flight actually enjoyable! Loved the recline of the seats!"
Cons: "healthier options for food."
Cons: "My family and I make I JFK -LAX reservation 4 months ago. We came to LAX three hours before our flight to make sure we get good seats. At the checking kiosk we did not have the option to pick seats , there was a message on the boarding pass that said to go see boarding agent. So we did, appreantly they over booked the trip and they were looking for volunteers to give up their seats!! Why did we have to be on stand by if our booking was confirmed 4 months ago!! They made us wait until the gate was closed and then they found us seats . This trip caused us mental anguish I will never fly American Airlines again"
Cons: "Crew behaviour is ridiculous. She says I am not here for listening you, you have to listen to us only, otherwise we will call security"
Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."
Cons: "tiny plane with uncomfortable, old seats. no entertainment options on a 3 hour flight. No food options for purchase."
Cons: "The landing gate in Palm Springs."
Pros: "The crew was nice, boarding wasn't an issue, and the flight was smooth."

Pros: "Price, boarding process and seats were good"
Cons: "Crew was border line rude, and for sure neither attentive nor pleasant, food was really really bad."
Cons: "I had reserved seats 31A and 15C for my flights 1561 and 6779, goinf Frankfurt to Dallas, and Dallas to San Jose. The charge for reserving seats was $182.03. Instead, I was put in mid-row seats 42D and 24E, on both flights. No notification or explanations from American Airlines or Kayak, and no refund...yet. Any comments?"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and big enough for large people. That crew and flight were on time and pleasant."

Pros: "No delays all on time United gets A+ for service"

Pros: "Customer service in Business Class."
Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."

Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Pros: "The flight was fast."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and everything was on time."
Cons: "The first class seats I sat in on both flights were so dirty. There was good on the wall next to me food on the overhead area and the backs of the seats. It was disgusting to see how filthy the airline allows the cabin to be. Needless to say I passed on snacks."

Cons: "TSA, food was bad in first class,"

Pros: "Late boarding, other then that ok."
Pros: "The crew kept you up dated, and they were caring."
Cons: "I loved it all"
Pros: "Free movies/entertainment"
Cons: "No selection of beer or liquor or food. OK - A flight to MEXICO and you have no mexican beer, tequila, or anything even remotely resembling Mexican drinks yet you boast all the routes you serve to mexico. It was nearly a four hour flight. C'mon"
Pros: "Some gate agents were very helpful and friendly with making (gratis) layover changes due to weather issues in my original layover city."

Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"
Pros: "The flight was a lot more than what I had expected. I have spent my life staying in many hotel rooms and my fair share in planes, this was an excellent flight. It was on time both from Appleton to Chicago and Chicago to Houston. I have no complaints."
Pros: "It was on time which was good"
Pros: "The employees were very helpful."
Cons: "Leg room was good in exit row seat but the seat itself was awful. Very uncomfortable. Having flown in exit row sests before was surprised at hiw bad it was."

Cons: "The TV kept going off. No news channels available."
Cons: "8 channels of looped shows and movies. Too long a flight for that...and then have to use my device to watch on the free part of the wifi.so no battery left. For this price? And I booked through Lufthansa but flew United. Bad form."
Pros: "That I finally got home although it was 4 in the morning!"
Cons: "Delays started early in the afternoon and continued for several hours. At one point the flight was cancelled. About 30 minutes later another flight was created with a 1-3 am flight. We should have been given an option to fly this late or rebook for free. It was too late to travel at this point."
Cons: "The airplane was freezing, and I'm 23 years old and very used to flying."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Spicy food and messy bathroom"
