Cons: "Flight overbooked and the gate paid no attention to how many bags were being brought onboard. Was forced to check my carry on. I hope it arrived."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "The flight was delayed, and delayed again, and finally delayed to 18 hours after original takeoff time. I was rebooked on a flight for the following after, and that flight has been delayed twice so far. Never again will I fly Delta."
Cons: "That I never made it to my destination"
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "That I missed my son graduating from the Air Force"
Cons: "I can’t believe with all that’s going on American doesn’t care. The terminal was packed with people. Terminal B Charlotte airport. Packed!!!. I had no choice. In the future Jet Blue. I know it’s all about making money the flight was packed. Logan airport Delta every other set has a sticker don’t sit here"
Cons: "A full flight in the midst of a pandemic. Totally unsafe! Safety first in the air and closed space vs how many you can pack in during a pandemic. Disgraceful! I have tried to avoid AA due to how they handle flying right now , I couldn’t today and they were just as bad as I imagined. Delta was so much safer and more protective of its customers . 50-60% full by design . Fly them and learn something."
Pros: "No hickups"
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't working on this plane"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing. It was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "The crew was great. I showed up to early and they were able to adjust my flight so I wasn’t sitting at the airport all day. Best service."
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Cons: "I requested for wheelchair die to my knees problem, but there was no wheelchair for me at Narita and Bangkok."
Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."
Pros: "The gate crew handled the delay as best they could."
Cons: "Seems that a crew timing out could be better anticipated."
Pros: "Seat 5A was great"
Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Cons: "Luggage lost never return"
Cons: "Very old airplane used for this route. Upgraded to business but seats and pods are old fashioned, uncomfortable. Newer pods and planes used in other routes make the entire trip more comfortable. The video system didn’t work properly, hard to figure out what to watch."
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Pros: "Being prompt"
Cons: "Ran out of food I liked."
Pros: "Ontime. Friendly staff. Newer plane. Large overhead."
Pros: "Clean airplanes. Customer service at PBI was great. Fake smiles. Charging in economy"
Cons: "No entertainment (tv wasn't working), FAs doing the bare minimum. No help even when traveling with a small child."
Pros: "Fast and much more efficient than the previous leg of our trip"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Pros: "Jet instead of prop."
Cons: "No snack service but understandable on such a short flight"
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed by 4.5 hours. Then when we finally landed, we had to wait nearly 2 hours on the tarmac before we taxied to the gate. American kept us in the dark about what was happening -- I might have made different plans if I had known what was going on."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "AA is now trying to save money (presumably) by doing like Delta: forcing half of us to connect in Charlotte. Unfortunately, the Charlotte airport is not ready to accommodate so many people. The airport looks like it is being renovated, which is fine, but there is no tape/cones to mark off the renovated areas from the walkways. You literally walk through dirt and construction sites. I didn't even think that was legal in the US?! Anyway, maybe it will be worth it once the renovations are complete, especially if AA is going to use it as a hub."
Cons: "I booked in August with your company for a trip in December. I booked out of Pittsburgh to Philly both directions to avoid Chicago. I picked seats and also chose British Airways. What I got was my trip to Philly to Manchester with middle of the middle seats (I PAID FOR AISLE). On the way back we got a change through Chicago (which I tried to avoid by booking in August). We did get the proper seats, fortunately. I will never book with your company again. So dissatisfied ....I booked so early and to no advantage."
Cons: "Flight was scary as hell. Lights flickering, bells constantly dinging, compartments continually popping open, and exit light flashing."
Cons: "Terrible attitude of Kay (Kathy) our flight attendant. Seemed like she didn’t want to be at work today. Said “thank you” and no response— didn’t talk at all. Seemed overworked?? No movie- no monitors? This was not First Class Service and we were very disappointed."
Cons: "American Airlines is always late"
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The shared screens."
Cons: "No personal entertainment systems. I ordered a low lactose meal and got yogurt which is high in lactose!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed hence felt a sufforcation the flight as well"
Pros: "Good seat back entertainment system. Plenty of movies I wanted to watch. Good to have an AC power outlet, too, to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "Charging more for some seats is a crappy business practice. Never enough room. Warmer than I'd like. Guy behind me kept stretching out his legs so much that he'd hit my feet unless I also stretched out."
Cons: "Seemed to be an unnecessary delay in departing a half hour late"
Pros: "Everything about the flight itself was excellent"
Cons: "Could mother on an online boarding pass from BA (ticked on) or AA ( flight operator)"
Pros: "Friendly people, seemingly short flight, as I slept part of the way. A lot quicker than driving from upstate New York."
Cons: "Again, hard to hear announcements, and I was unaware that non-alcoholic beverages were complimentary. Ride was a little rough, awakening me numerous times"
Pros: "On time and smooth flight"
Pros: "Aircraft 777-200. I've seated in row 14, wich have great confort for legs."
Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."
Pros: "We made it home safely"
Cons: "Service and comfort are very poor."
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "No drinks handed out."
Cons: "Purchased tickets for three of us weeks in advance. Purchased seat upgrades for all three of us for all four legs of our flight. Flight delayed for two hours. When boarding, one pass failed scan. They immediately printed another without comment. While in line to board my friend noticed they changed her seat from 4D to 36F. We returned to complain. They said that seat or middle seat in row 29is only choice. I said we paid for upgrade. They said to ask for a refund at LAX when landing at midnight. Asked passenger in 4D when he got his seat assignment - SAME DAY as flight, paid nothing for upgrade. I signed up for frequent flier program two weeks ago. Will be cancelling when card is received."
Pros: "I have no praise for American Airlines. We didn't board our flight because we would have landed in a flooding, evacuating area with gale force winds. Despite this unexpected natural event, we were unable to cancel our trip. I paid American Airlines more than a month's rent and could not recover this cost."
Cons: "American Airlines policy on refunds should be illegal. When there are hurricane and flooding conditions at a destination, CUSTOMERS should have the choice whether they want to CANCEL or reschedule. Simply providing a small window of time for a fee-free flight change to the same destination is not acceptable. The flooding is still not alleviated inany areas and the change period is over."
Pros: "The cabins are very cold and the seats stiff. Food was just dry pretzels and soda, coffee etc. Landing was smooth. I just wish more information was given as to why we were delayed etc."
Cons: "Aircraft need to be updated. Or price should be credited when you get such an old aircraft."
Cons: "Horrible, inflight experience, customer service"
Cons: "No food or drinks on this flight"
Pros: "Willingness to help find a new flight"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight, I was able to get on a new flight but I had to sprint to my connection because that plane was boarding before I was even on the ground. Thankfully the attendant opened the door for me to get on. I am on a 10 day leave from the Marine Corp. so every hour counts, it's frustrating to lose time at the airport. Also, my luggage didn't make it on the connection."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we spent about an hour just sitting in the plane before we took off. When I expressed concerns aboit making my connecting flight to the front desk representative she stated she didn't have time to help me as she had a plane to board. It was another 20 minutes before she even began to board anyone. She was very abrupt and rude. I had to call AA while sitting on the tarmac to get rebooked which was a more positive experience."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "The delays the staff was not friendly or helpful"
Cons: "My 3rd cancelled American flight this summer. No fun. Takes twice as long to get home when they do that. Time to switch airlines."
