Those regional jets are just cramped. Not much you can do.
We landed at 8:30pm and did not deplane until 9:45pm. We had to take busses to a terminal gate. It was awful.
Flight was excellent. Crew was very professional.
Pros: "The crew and the quick boarding"
Cons: "There still needs to be more room in the cabin and comfort plus. And not only just for leg room but also arm room"
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Very clean and made sure we were able to sanitize and keep our area safe."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded and de-boarded quickly."
Cons: "Video entertainment system did not work at first and had to be rebooted."
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible."
Pros: "I like the comfortable seats and the entertainment feature found on every seat."
Cons: "Not much. Delta is superior"
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."
Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"
Cons: "The flight attendants skipped many rows of people not offering food or beverage. I wasnt sleep so not sure why I wasnt asked did I want a beverage or snack"
Pros: "The crew was totally understanding with the huge delay."
Cons: "The communication from Delta on the delay."
Pros: "VERY small plane and small narrow seats"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Cons: "I now know the downside of buying through Kayak, the ticket is non-upgradable even when seats became open and I offered to pay for the upgrade."
Pros: "Great food and bev service"
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: "The attention to detail from the crew, and the friendliness"
Pros: "Best part, no one sat in the seats next to me so I got to lay down and sleep. Staff was nice, food was fine."
Cons: "This flight was good"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Delayed and then arrived at airport and sat on tarmac for too long waiting for clearance to go to gate"
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Cons: "The crew was great and the flight came in early. I wish there was a better food selection."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable,,,,,, And we flew fast than other airlines I been on, And wow the stewardess were the best , wow service was excellent,,,,,,,,,there was lotion in the bath room, And tooth brushes and tooth paste, wow loved it, Great flight, thank you."
Cons: "Really everything. Love the Korean airport, There was a small capsule room I rented for the time between flights ,,,,, and not have to leave the airport .....took shower and nap. Just what I needed, Then got me three sandwiches and big thing of orange juice at Seven Eleven,,,,, Ahhhhhh happy happy happy."
Pros: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 1hr."
Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Crowded waiting area and plane. Awful on plane!"
Pros: "Seating and boarding were fine. That process was relatively quick/straightforward"
Cons: "I have never had an on time Delta flight, and hopefully, it will happen one day"
Pros: "After a massive power outage, the Delta employees were calm, professional, and kept everything moving as well as they could under the circumstances. We boarded the plane, and then had to deplane while we waited for the pilot to arrive. The updates were timely and we were kept well informed by the ground crew. Hats off to them for making the best of a bad situation!"
Cons: "I paid extra to sit comfortably only to have the seat adjoining my occupied by someone who expanded over onto my seat! Leaving me barely any room to sit comfortably."
Pros: "Other than the delay by the Hong Kong Airport controller, everything went smoothly. The plane was late to Seattle."
Cons: "The luggage custom clearing would be much better if we could do it like the Vancouver BC where an electronic monitor was used to identify one's luggage without the need to handle them manually. Much more efficient and allowing folks to get on the connecting flights easier."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Seats are hard. Sat in the exit row."
Pros: "The new delta seats are super uncomfortable and zero legroom. When you put the seat back back the butt part goes forward and your knees are crunched in front of you. The cushion also angles down its horrible. They gave a couple rows extra room and now charge more for them while crunching every other seat together."
Cons: "Seats and legroom horrible"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."
Pros: "I am not one who enjoys flying. I don't think there ever will be a time that I enjoy flying. However, the pilot, stewards, and all other workers on delta were very nice."
Cons: "I don't like flying so there really wasn't anything I liked."
Cons: "Plane was hot but that seems common for these small planes during the summer."
Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Cons: "After 600,000 miles of flying, this one was the worst. 5 hours on the tarmac for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."
Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."
Pros: "Was on time, in fact early. Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The CRJ is just very small. No room in the overheads, no room below. Seat didn't recline, all average carryons have to be gate checked, the usual. Well it still beats driving!"
Pros: "Seats, video and overall comfort are all very nice on the new 900's."
Cons: "Only food available was pretzels. Not even peanuts or cookies."
Flight was delayed one hour due to a mechanical issue.
Cons: "American is poorly prepared for day long delays."
Cons: "No food or beverage service during covid-19"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing. It was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "My flight attendant always smiled and was very hospitable."
Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent"
Cons: "Great service always"
Pros: "Loved getting pretzels and pop. Loved having movie options. Didn’t love the delay."
Cons: "If the seat hadn’t broken and delayed our flight by 20 minutes"
Pros: "Seating, nice personnel"
Cons: "Long layover in Chicago"
Pros: "The announcements were clear and the captain did not mumble! Not sure what happened at the airport but we had issues with ground crew not coming to help park us. The captain made sure we were informed and it didn’t really add to much to our time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent. Communication from the flight deck was good as well"
Pros: "Leaving on time"
Cons: "Snack selection could have been better. Gluten free options."
Pros: "The ground personal and flight crews did everything they could do make up for the delays."
Cons: "The numerous delays The small aircraft with overhead bins that couldn't handle what I always carry on normal airplanes. The plane didn't have entertainment Missing plug ins that most airplanes have today."
Cons: "Ticket says must be at gate 10 minutes prior. We experienced a delay in security. Got to gate 13 minutes prior and was informed our tickets were given away to standby travelers since it was a busy day. 12 hours later we got to new York could not board standby to Philadelphia. Our bags made it to Philadelphia."
Pros: "Comfy seats and legroom in first class"
Cons: "Expected more than cookies for food in first class."
Pros: "Sweet new plane."
Cons: "Late. Plane was only about 1/3 full but husband and i were seated five rows apart."
Pros: "by airlines"
Cons: "flying next day trough LAX"
Cons: "flight was delayed two hours because they couldn't find a single American airlines employee to sign off on some log book.sat on tarmac two hours because no one could sign a piece of paper!!! so obviously we missed our connecting international flight to dublin. called american customer svc, they made us call british airways, british airways said we had to call kayak, kayak said we had to call American. thanks for all the great customer svc. this is why everyone hates flying and all airlines are garbage. then finally in chicago american customer svc desk said they rebooked us on a British airways flight the same night, we traversed (ran) the entire chicago ohare airport only to find out british airways said we were not on that flight, were completely full and we had to go back to american. literally had to leave airport to get on train to go back to american terminal. they swear we are now (the next day) on this aer lingus flight despite our inability since last night to try and check in to that flight because aer lingus website doesnt work, no one answers their customer service number and their ticket counter at airport doesnt open until noon. suffice it to say we are still not on a flight to Dublin, ive missed an entire day of a limited vacation, and i will NEVER fly american again."
Pros: "Horrible landing. Also-landed early and srive around for 20 min with no announcement from cockpit"
Cons: "3 hours late leaving Dublin, with poor communicstion on the monitors as to gate info. not to mention the lateness."
Pros: "Food - What can I say about pretzels except "Okay"?!"
Cons: "I have never been treated as poorly as I was by the old biddy that physically took the guitar out of my hands as I was trying to board the plane today. I travel as a professional musician at least once a week and I’ve never been threatened with arrest for having an instrument on my person."
Pros: "Arrived a little early and without incident."
Cons: "Flight attendant had a problem with my wife asking for Coke Zero. There was one can left and she was reluctant to serve it to her."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"
Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "Wish the seats could've been a bit more comfortable"
Pros: "Good service. Early arrival. Fast boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment. Hard seats."
Pros: "everything fine"
Cons: "having to gate-check our hand luggage"
Pros: "Great staff. Arrived very early. Smooth flight ."
Cons: "short flight herded like cattle. not much about it"
Cons: "The information of code share was not clear..so I was expected to fly with JAL..."
Pros: "Almost on time"
Cons: "Boarding process, PA system volume very low at PHX"
Pros: "Met expectations. Landed early."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected"
Cons: "Delayed because of cleaning crew showing up late.... Totally avoidable. Gate crew was not helpful"
Cons: "Never made the flight due to flight not getting in to Chicago on time. Still stranded here with my son. Supposed to be sent to Hartford then Dublin later today. Overall a very bad experience with American Airlines. Wouldn't recommend travelling with them again."
Pros: "Customer service at American Airlines was amazingly good. They figured out the mess that the third party agent, WEBJET.COM made and fixed it."
Cons: "The third party agent, webjet.com, was horrible. American airlines contacted them several times about canceling the ABQ-ORD flight and they never responded. WEBJET.COM did not put their name on the electronic ticket so I was unaware of who to contact. Finnair was not particularly helpful. They discontinued my chat conversation and didn't have an option to call back so I had to wait for 20 minutes. American Airlines was impressively helpful. They figured out that WEBJET.COM had canceled one leg of our fight and AA.com reinstated the flight. American had also contacted WEBJET.COM numerous times and WEBJET.COM had never responded."
Pros: "Remodeled plane style"
Cons: "Liked it"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and I'm a Premium passenger."
Pros: "On time, upgraded at Dallas"
Cons: "Couldn't get my boarding pass. My name was wrong in your system, had to go to American Airlines desk for assistance and the attendant couldn't locate my name. There was a service attendant at the Alaskan airline service desk."
Pros: "Boarding was impossible! The line was longer than the jet bridge itself and we had to wait after being called for a 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."
Cons: "Boarding started almost an hour late but the status never went to delayed (they just said it was on time but kept pushing the boarding time back). Arrived in CLT with only 20 min before the next flight departure."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour. Because of that, I missed my appointment."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Late take off with no explanation No on board entertainment Other isle we sat in was even more cramped than the others."
Cons: "It turns out that this flight was delayed, so I would have missed my connections. Huge thanks to the gate agent from United who rebooked me to San Francisco and from there to Frankfurt and then Prague."
Cons: "Flight was very late departing"
Cons: "45 minute delay due to passenger self-injury, then turned around half-way across the Atlantic due to another passenger medic."
Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Pros: "We made good time, and the crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "My seat kept reclining on its own and had no headrest. Takeoff was rough, even for Albuquerque."
Cons: "Pilots driving waaaay to fast"
Pros: "Good landing, an I arrived earlier."
Cons: "First, our flight was cancelled and they texted us with an alternative flight leaving a day later, with a 9 hour layover! Um, excuse me? Since this was a weekend trip we would have had to turn around and get back on a flight back to SF a few hours later. I called and they didn't even offer the option to refund the ticket! I finally got us on an alternative flight leaving earlier after waiting for 30 minutes to speak with a supervisor because the person I initially spoke with had no power to do anything to help. We ended up flying Alaska Airlines on the way there and I wish we had originally booked through them because the way back was AWFUL. They wouldn't seat my partner and I together because we were flying Economy class, which they reminded us of repeatedly when I complained. The agents claimed they had no power to do anything because of the computer system which randomly selects your seats. I asked what about people traveling with small children and they didn't seem to have an answer. Oh yeah, that's another thing. As if we got a better deal than with any other airline out there after all the bag fees. The Economy class/the majority of the people flying have no carry on allowance. By the way, when we got on the flight we were able to sit next to each other because the seats next to us weren't even occupied. Ridiculous. Never flying United again. I've been bumped off of flights and had bad experiences before but this was the last straw for me."
Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "No movie or tv"
Pros: "Enjoyed the stroopwaffels that were handed out as snacks."
Pros: "The check in staff was super friendly"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work and the flight was very bumpy."
Cons: "Thought we were going to have to spend the night on New Jersey. Because of it. No apologies or compensation. As a result, we didn't get home until almost 3:00 A.M."
Cons: "Rude crew- not service oriented"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "Upset about not being allowed a carry on luggage."
Pros: "Check in was super easy. Seats are tiny. The screens on the backs of the seats are annoying, with nothing worth watching."
Pros: "It was fine. I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather. Rebooking was a zoo, had to pay for hotel room and worst of all waited over an hour at baggage claim to get our bags back. It's taking us 2 days to get from Albuquerque to Austin."
Pros: "Everyone was quite friendlly and personable, especially our flight attendants."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the captain over the speaker. The inflight entertainment was expensive"
Pros: "I like that the seats were more comfortable and had at least some padding."
Cons: "The gate had no comfortable seats and looked like a minimalists ' lounge. The gate agent did not actively give any updates to the boarding process."
Cons: "Late, missed my connection, have to fly out in the morning. Have 3 hrs to sleep & be back at the airport."
Cons: "I was warned about booking with this airline but I had to see it for myself before listening to others now I wish I had done just that. First of all, outdated planes, no Tv screens, expensive wifi. How is it only $3 one way and then $5 the other especially after making us wait for 3 hours and 22 minutes extra. Exhausting flights both to Albuquerque from Houston and from Houston to Boston. Poor communication. Poor planning ahead. Very dissatisfied. Going with Jet Blue from now on. They never disappoint, even if there was a delay in flight."
Pros: "We departed on time and arrived at least half an hour early."
Cons: "The seats lacked those tabs on the side of the headrest that fold forward to help hold your head while sleeping and little leg room."
Cons: "No outlet to charge my phone"
Cons: "- There wasn't space for my bag to go overhead - There were no options for food or entertainment - My seat was very cramped"
Cons: "Seats could provide lower-lumbar support."
Pros: "On time, ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Everything, United blows"
Pros: "Made the flight-arrived home early-good landing!"
Cons: "Racing to make it-thought we hadn't."
Cons: "Seated in last row no recline on chair!"
Pros: "These days we can all admit flying is not what it used to be before 9/11. It's still professional and curtious, but the awareness and appreciation of passengers has dwindled. Stewards and stewardesses go through the motions and do just what they need to do not more. The pilots got the plane to its destination well within the time sometimes even a half an hour early. But sometimes being that early means sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes which cut it close to missing my next flight. Flights used to offer blankets if passengers were cold. If the plane is not full they do allow passengers to move seats to be more comfortable. The complementary beverage is still always a nice touch but seconds aren't offered and cups are often taken before they're finished. It would be nice to see our country's airlines go back to a little more awareness and appreciation for one another, and work to improving their levels to above satisfactory. The flight was supposed to have entertainment viewable on personal devices but going through the app to select something was told this flight didn't have access. Overall it was satisfactory."
Cons: "It was a little too cold on the plane. Blankets weren't offered. The food while it looked delicious needed to be warmed and the only option was coffee for warming it."
Pros: "Late boarding, other then that ok."
Pros: "Smooth flight once we got in the air."
Cons: "Didn't like the delay 2-3hours"
Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"
Pros: "Quick flight back home, crew understood my needs of having to move 18 days from acl replacement surgery."
Cons: "I had problems from the beginning of my flight to the end. My plane got canceled because they did not have enough Staff. I wasted a whole day of my vacation, waiting on flights"
Pros: "My flight was delayed by a day due to the engine problem."
Cons: "Got a voucher for a hotel that was of very poor quality. I made my own rebooking. Otherwise I probably would never leave ABQ."
Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Seats are narrower and make for a lot of discomfort when stuck in the middle seat. I do not like other stranger's bodies touching mine. That is just wrong."
Pros: "I think Topeka was her name. She was a very good flight attendant"
Cons: "The gate changed after we checked in which was only 30 mins before. Almost missed the flight because we were waiting at the wrong gate. Earlier and accurate description of gate is what is needed. Or someone from united to visit the other gate and announce there is a change to help people out"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Cramped seating, seat would not recline at all. Departure delayed due to poor airplane maintenance."
Pros: "My connecting flight was way late, but the plane was held for me and a few others in Denver. Because it was the last flight of the evening I don't know what I would have done if left at the airport indefinitely. I am grateful the plane was held. And regret any inconvenience this may have caused others."
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."
