They changed plans after I had checked in and had my confirmed seat. They changed my comfort seat to main cabin and even though there were 4 available comfort seats showing, I wasn’t able to pick one. When I asked at the counter if I could switch back to my comfort she said no.. bc someone else may have higher status than me which is ridiculous bc I was originally comfort. On the flight, I asked the flight attendant to switch and he said once they closed the doors he’d let me know, and he never said anything to me again. Plus we were an hour late arriving, because apparently we weren’t cleared to land and we had to circle. Not sure what’s up with Delta lately, but this was a crappy experience.
Sat on ground at Lax for 40 min after landing because some one was at our gate. After a 3 1/2 hour flight it sucks to just sit there and wait for no reason that the pilot could give us. So much for ever getting out of the airport on time.
Everything was great until landed and had to wait 25 minutes to get into our gate! Can’t think of a good excuse for that on such a late, cross-country flight. Plenty of prep time!
Pros: "I wouldn’t know t"
Cons: "To let me on the flight"
Cons: "The pilot take off, navigation in the air, and landing were horrible ."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"
Cons: "Hand out headphones, my phone doesn’t have compatibility."
Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!"
Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."
Cons: "Leg room was lacking."
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Pros: "Cabin service was decent"
Cons: "Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
Pros: "Great services ce."
Pros: "The Gate Agents were excellent and very helpful with accommodating our family traveling with an infant and a six year old."
Cons: "The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance."
Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Pros: "Nice crew members always polite and courteous.maybe over polite if anything. Australians don't require subservient service deliverers. The constant "your very welcome" regardless of the service and response to that delivery is off-putting to me. But al in all pretty good in most areas."
Cons: "ON ticketing at New Orleans I wasn't allocated a seat number. At the gate shortly prior to boarding I needed to attend the desk for that allocation. I was also not told which Terminal the plane would go to in LAX and which terminal the connecting flight would be leaving from. They were not sure! Consequently I floundered around at LAX wasting time and bothering people for information that should have been known to me. The security checks are over the top and inconsistent in the US."
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. Although the flight was several hours late the crew and staff were very professional and apologetic. The alerts were accurate and timely. Once we were in flight I was extremely please with the ride. Thanks to the captain and crew my granddaughter and I made it home safely."
Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
Pros: "Love the new in-cabin wi-fi, USB charging station, and menu of in-flight entertainment and resources on the individual flatscreens."
Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"
Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"
Pros: "Free pretzels and drink"
Cons: "Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."
Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Pros: "Meg, our stewardess came out to tell us there would not be any coffee on a 6 AM flight and that we had time to get coffee, if needed. She kept us informed of flight delays, helpful with my bags."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be done, but due to construction at the airport, waited on tarmac for an hour before we could get to a gate, then they had problems with the ramp and that had to be addressed. But pilot was very good about keeping us informed on delays and he was as frustrated as we were."
Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."
Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "It was actually a flight from new Orleans to Detroit. Seats were assigned at the gate for myself and many others. It seemed like the gate agent didn't care where she assigned guests who were travelling together as several people were not able to sit with their travel companion. Once I was on the plane I however switched with someone to allow them to sit next to their companion and put me closers to mine. Everything else went smoothly."
Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."
Cons: "The flight was delayed when the pilot's tablet failed and he had to run to operations to get another. Seemed odd. While this was going on they decided to fuel the plane. Seemed like an excuse because they didn't have their act together on the fueling. Tablets are pretty reliable, do they really rely upon an ipad to get us where we are going?"
Pros: "As expecred."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process."
Boarding: I was asked to check my carry on complimentary. I assume the staff believed my handbag was too big. Crew: n/a outside of the snack service. Comfort: the turbulence was so bad I was nauseous. I looked for the bag behind the seat and it looked used. Food: n/a except for the complimentary cookies. Those taste good. Entertainment: only allowed for Sprint/T-Mobile customers for some reason. My flight two days before included entertainment so this was disappointing. American Airlines spelled my name incorrectly which resulted in me being unable to use pre-check on both flights. I am overall disappointed with this experience.
Pros: "Smooth ight"
Cons: "Need to add cabin service"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "I got fussed at going to the bathroom because the threat of turbulence was coming. We left later than the departure time."
Cons: "boarding, seating, entertainment"
Pros: "It was acceptable."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was cancelled and we missed our friends 70th birthday celebration."
Cons: "Staff at the ticket counter were curt, rude, and patronizing. They were ill equipped to deal with the situation."
Pros: "Nice personnel"
Pros: "Width of the seat is nice"
Cons: "Boarding process is not great and delays while already boarded are terribly frustrating"

Cons: "Space in seats"
Pros: "Crew was courteous Boarding was effortless thanks to the AA app"
Cons: "Multiple flight and boarding delays Aircraft needs cleaning/update"

Pros: "Left on time and got us to Dallas safely"
Cons: "Due to weather (not your fault) arrival to Dallas was delayed and we nearly missed connection"
Pros: "Why does a plane run out of Food and wine?"
Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."
Pros: "On time. Jet rather than a turbo-prop plane. Quick flight."
Cons: "Somewhat haphazard boarding. Not even a cookie for a snack."
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."
Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "AC didn't work and no beverage service or WiFi"
Pros: "Older smaller plane, no wifi"
Cons: "American after 4 hours delay cancelled the flight, AA refused to accept responsibility and refused to book me with another airline (my daughter was having surgery the next day and I was supposed to take care of her) I sent an email asking for them to cover the cost of my last minute ticket with the other airline, and they had refused. I will never fly AA again."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "expected rough ride due to weather, but flight was very smooth. Pilot was great, and made good time!"
Cons: "a bit of a delay to weather, but that is understandable"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the planeapproximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."
Pros: "Service, attitude, great hospitality. Was never treated this nice on any flight ever."
Cons: "Fact that I have to fly different airlines in the future"
Cons: "Unexplained 45-minute delay on second flight."

Pros: "The crew was friendly helpful an our pilot had a sense of humor which is always a plus!"
Pros: "Great seats."
Cons: "Customer service both over the phone and in person not very helpful to ensure connecting flights were made. Much better experience with Southwest in regards to coordinating delayed flights. AA could have done a much better job to ensure more flyers made thei connecting flights."
Pros: "Staff werected all very helpful and and pleasant. Pilot navigated a smooth line."
Cons: "Nothing stands out"
Pros: "prop plane small, noise, shaky no problem. Great connection, plane was not full."

Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"
Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"
Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket to Miami for my infant son and I to accompany my wife on her business trip. First off, there was a 2.5 hour delay. The flight was overbooked. The lady at the ticket counter would not switch my seat to be seated next to my wife and 4 month old infant. Luckily the gentleman beside her was willing to switch seats so that she could comfortably breast feed our son. My checked luggage was severely damaged. The side of the luggage was caved in and one wheel was completely ripped off while the other was partially damaged. A cart had to be rented in order to transport the broken suitcase through the airport to the rental car service area where we picked up our car. The infant car seat belonging to a $180 traveling system was damaged and is missing pieces that secure the broken canopy. We were rudely advised by a staff member to file a report as she pointed in the general directional of a line a mile long. We have been advised by the manufacturing company to discontinue the use of this car seat because it is no longer considered safe for the baby to travel in. Should we ever be involved in an accident, the car seat would likely fail to ensure the baby's safety due to the mishandling by American Airline employees. Unfortunately since the flight was ridiculously delayed and my son was ill, we were unable to file the report. My wife has since contacted American Airlines via telephone and intends to write them a formal written complaint."

Pros: "Wonderful flight.... great crew!"
Cons: "Not being stuck in Houston for 7 hours"
Pros: "7 hours added to trip due to poor management of missed flight in Brussels"
Cons: "United needs to do a better job of dealing with missed flights. Missed flights happen, but over an hour in various lines because they couldn’t manage relations with Brussels Air, to say nothing of not realizing there was no chance of making the flight"
Cons: "Delayed missed connection, lost luggage!!!!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, attendants were great."

Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Cons: "Took too long to get baggage"
Cons: "You would think that after all the problems United has had recently that they would make an effort to be a little more customer service oriented. Every flight attendant was rude and dismissive. The "personal entertainment" on your own device barely worked. Never flying this airline again."
Pros: "The flight was pretty normal."
Cons: "It was difficult to get the media player to work to use the entertainment options."
Pros: "On time flights are a rarity these days. United pleasantly surprised us."
Pros: "very kind flight crew, no complaints coming back!"
Cons: "We did have one seemingly annoyed flight attendant on the way to NOLA from Chicago, and older woman. Seemed like every question we had was a burden. Everyone else was really nice, though."
Pros: "Flight was delayed, almost missed connection."

Pros: "Friendly in-flight crew. The fight wasn't full to capacity so I had an empty seat next to me"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment was not free."
Pros: "Televisions in the headrests, friendly crew."
Cons: "We were unable to land in Newark due to congestion. We ran out of gas and had to divert to Philadelphia and wait an hour. Once we were able to land in Newark, the gate was broken and could not connect to the plane. We sat another 45 minutes before they decided to let us connect to another gate. They gave everyone on the flight free tv after I had already paid $7.99 for mine and did not reimburse me."
Pros: "United has real nice seats and the seat belts fit. Flight was great."
Cons: "I hate when airlines make seat belts too short, it seems like a no brainer to add length to a seat belt."

Cons: "The TSA at New Orleans airport was rude"
Cons: "Smooth flight, on time, safety procedures followed"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The staff was rude, bored, and appeared to be bothered by any request that was made. The flight was oversold, luckily I was able to get a seat (like I had booked and planned for) but my flight was horribly long. I was stuck next to someone that was drenched in perfume, it was so bad it hurt my sinuses. Since the flight was oversold there were no seats where I could move. Not like the attendants would have helped me anyways. I will not fly United again if I can help it."
Pros: "Couldn't have asked for more. Quick flight l. Got in early!"
Pros: "United seems to be recycling which is a good thing."
