Cons: "Food and service. Our flight attendant didn’t seem to want to be there. Sub-par service for first class by a long shot."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No drink/snack service because of shorter flight times."
Pros: "Horrible storms kept us in the air for at least an hour past our scheduled landing time. And yet we experienced virtually no turbulence. The pilots did an excellent job of keeping us updated, kept things as smooth as possible with the bad weather and we had plenty of movies and games to choose"
Cons: "I was charged an extra $100 because my bag was 10lbs overweight. Where is this crazy fee communicated on their website? And why does it have to be so much? I didn't have a way to weigh our bag before we left. I had no idea it was so heavy - ridiculous price."
Pros: "Crew was great, just not very much room."
Cons: "Larger seat room."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "Being that I needed to book last minute due to my other carrier only having one flight headed back to my destination, of which they weren't even sure if it would be taking off...Delta came through in a pinch. It was my first time flying with them but the ticket agent was helpful and attentive"

Cons: "more leg room is needed"
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly"
Pros: "Not sure why this flight was delayed inbound. But it made the departure late by over 30 minutes."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Headrest was too short and there’s no seat back screen. More communication from the cockpit at the end would have been nice. Announcements were very hard to hear over the background plane noise."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
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: "Flight was safe, smooth & fast."

Pros: "The people was relaxed and the flight attendant was polite and professional.. everything was on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all great service"
Pros: "Roomier than a lot of airplanes."

Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Pros: "I liked booking/purchasing my ticket on Kayak on June 3rd."
Cons: "I did not like arriving for my 4:50 PM EST flight at 4:10 PM EST and being told there is no way I can make my flight. The crew at CVG’s Delta desk is incredibly uninspiring and not helpful at all. A lot can be done in 40 minutes and they made little to no effort helping me make my flight or to get me on another flight on 6/13 that would get me home to Colorado Springs the same day."
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Cons: "The attendants at the delta counter in the airport were very rude and told us we were nit elite member when in Lima and Mexico was at the contrary"
Pros: "Friendly crew with modern plane"
Cons: "Why am I paying for first class for just snacks I can buy in an airport shop?"
Cons: "Flight was late by almost 2 hours!!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarded quickly and efficiently. Staff were nice enough but all business."
Pros: "Nice and attentive staff, smooth on and off."
Pros: "I fly non Rev so it's great to fly economy comfort for free"
Cons: "Seats were available so not a bad experience. Sometimes not knowing if I'll make the flight is unnerving. It's worth it however for the flight benefit I book directly through Delta so very curious how and why Kayak is requesting this survey"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Cons: "Plane was hot but that seems common for these small planes during the summer."
Cons: "I have never been to Billings, so I find it rather difficult to review this flight that I have never been on."
Cons: "had to check my carryon which got WET sitting outside to be loaded on the plane. It was a cloth bag."
Pros: "The crew chief"
Cons: "Water not to top; towel holder broken. 20 minutes for wheel chair to arrive"
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't great cookie!"
Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."
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: "Flying to Portland was trouble free."
Cons: "No complaints here"
Cons: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Cons: "Almost missed flight due to late first flight. Complete amateur"
Pros: "Seat room is limited, especially when you are in the middle seat."
Cons: "Seat space"
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Cons: "Flight delays twice coming out of Augusta. Barely made connection otherwise flight was ok"
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Better seat cushions! There is not much padding & the seats get really hard."
Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."
Pros: "Very kind flight attendant. Flight on time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work."
Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Cons: "The flight from Charlotte to Jacksonville denied 4 passengers boarding due to a weight restriction being met during the boarding process. There were no more same day flights available and staff was confused about how to resolve the issue."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Cons: "International check bag fee of $100 because British Airways partner. Too strict with carry on allowance. Older planes. Not very comfortable. Overall not worth the price. Supper hard landing. And poor air quality."
Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"
Pros: "Food - What can I say about pretzels except "Okay"?!"
Pros: "AA hired a stewardess from Taiwan who spoke to us in our language. She and her team all made sure our journey was comfortable."
Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Pros: "Crew was nicw"
Cons: "Aircraft issues, late on take off, a gate change, but the ticket against kept us informed"
Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."
Cons: "Avianca cancelled our original flight forcing us to leave a day early. Next they cancelled our return flight forcing us to come home a day early. Finally, when we arrived, they had oversold the flight and were short one seat and almost didn't get on at all. Will NEVER fly Avianca again."
Cons: "The plane was small, it was not that comfortable"
Pros: "I had a great experience on my flight and the staff could NOT have done a better job. I want to thank everyone from the boarding gate to the deboarding gate, for such a nice experience. But listen up Americans, the entertainment would’ve been better, if one: the internet was free like it was in MEXICO! And two: the sound worked for the movies. (That might’ve been my fault... or my phone’s fault). But, the free texting was something only available in a country to which Donald Trump (the most patriotic American in his whole wide mind) thinks is so inferior! What’s up America? Can’t afford to give us free WiFi in our planes? I hear ya... What’re you gonna do Trump, build a wall around the United State’s overpriced internet service?!? Just kidding folks! I had a great flight!"
Cons: "I didn’t like nothing! Haha... see that just sounds cool and negative to say... but if you want to get technical and check my syntax and grammar and stuff, that means I DID like EVERYTHING! And I did! Thanks American I appreciate you!"
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"

Pros: "Very smooth. Outstanding A-321 platform."
Cons: "No place to plug in my dying phone. All Group 7-9s had to check bags. This is unacceptable. Had to wait on connecting passengers (didn't know the airlines did that anymore). I am tired and have to go to work at my usual time since the flight landed late."
Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"
Pros: "In flight entertainment options. new, clean aircraft."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Cons: "Stop serving early"

Pros: "The flight attendant lady from 1st class/Business held my suit jacket for me to grab on the way out. Simple thing, but very thoughtful and kind. Love it."
Cons: "The negatives are puny compared to what made me happy in this trip. Thanks AA! Please thank that nice lady for me!"
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Cons: "I was delayed out of Newark due to the arrivung flight coming in late. When i landed in charlotte, i sprinted across the airport and missed the connection by 2 minutes. Rules are rules, i understand thwy cant reopen the flight for me. It happens. The frustrating part was when aa refused to comp me a hotel room. I got a voucher for a discount. The discount worked out to be 6 dollars. Not a pleasant experience."

Cons: "Shared TV?!!"
Pros: "Fastest flight I've ever had!"

Pros: "Gate agent friendly and on the ball!"
Cons: "Seats are torture"
Cons: "I was disappointed to use 40,000 points for each of three one-way award tickets, for a total of 120,000 points, only to have two of the chosen seats changed without any notification before hand. One aisle seat was switched to a window seat."

Cons: "No problems at all."
Pros: "Efficient crew and easy boarding."
Cons: "No frills but ok."
Pros: "Free coffee."
Pros: "Power ports at the seats basically worked, thank goodness. If you pay for Economy Plus, there's a basic, humane amount of leg room."
Cons: "The bathrooms have been narrowed so that an average male can't turn around without contortions. The conditions, overall, are subhuman."
Cons: "At the last minute outside my control I could not fly. I tried to get a refund or a voucher and I could not. Well I could but the cost of changing or exchanging the ticket was more than the face value of the ticket."
Pros: "That seats next to me were empty so I was able to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "That my ears don't work well, so it's hard to hear the movies."
Pros: "I loved how comfortable the plane was. The snacks were tasty! My husband and I actually looked in the grocery store for them when we returned home :)"

Pros: "staff friendly"
Cons: "Could not check in on app due to basic economy . Made me what until last to board . I had no seat assigned until last second"
Cons: "Too many delays and ended up having to call my boss to let him know I wasn't going to make it to work the next day because they didn't have a pilot to fly us back on time. Didn't give us food vouchers and they weren't paying for your hotel if you had to stay over night. The planes are super old and have no TV's, not very comfortable. Worst experience ever... never again am I flying with United."
Cons: "Not a fan of the snack"
Pros: "The woman who helped me check in."
Cons: "The difficulty of on line check in with a bag to checl"

Cons: "That you have to pay for everything but I guess now a days every airline is doing the same thing."
Pros: "First a long wait for plane repairs in Chicago. Then the plane couldn't be repaired so we had to wheel our heavy bags to a new gate and wait, again. Finally a new plane arrived and we finally got on. Nothing free but pretzels and water, etc. No compensation. No movies so I had nothing to do, since I planned to watch a movie. Didn't bring my book."

Pros: "The crew worked furiously to get everyone her drink & snack. Boarding sequence was orderly."
Cons: "Most of the time, the weak link is in check-in. For CLE-ORD, too many huge personal bags & carry-ons slipped thru the process resulting in takeoff delay as the staff checked for overhead cabin space back & forth. Inside the jet, the crew had to look for cabin space, rearrange ridiculously large bags...in order to fit my backpack. More delay. Some "personal" items were larger than most carryons."

Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"
