Landed early, then had to wait an hour on an active runway.
I followed all airport, tsa & delta staff regulations. They charged me a fortune. $750 to check luggage which went to Baltimore without me. I need two of those bags sent to Atlanta now. I will be on hold for an hour with them trying to resolve this. I will be flying home on America or United
Delayed boarding otherwise all was great. Had the Comfort+ seating which was decent. A bit more room than what is normal these days. Free Wifi for the whole trip was a bonus also
Fantastic pilots! Great landing in a windy weather situation.
Appears to have been delayed to wait for other crews to get to Miami, its tough now but schedules missed count
Pros: "Great crew. Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Should add weather/radar to the flight tracker"
Pros: "We like how delta still has the middle seat open. Makes it feel more comfortable. Also the loading the back of the plane first. Always was a smart idea, glad it’s finally happening."
Cons: "Seat comfort and snack choice."
Pros: "Comfortable and safe flight."
Pros: "Boarding was simple."
Cons: "Seat was trash."
Pros: "Crew was night seat sucked plane was cramped"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The flight didn’t leave on time because the plane wasn’t ready for takeoff (the engines had to be warmed up... WHY would that not be ready when it was time?!) so we left 30 minutes late, didn’t make up any lost time at all in the air and we ended up missing our connecting flight because of it all."
Pros: "Fast boarding, quick flight, friendly attendants."
Pros: "Great crew, easy process overall"
Cons: "Make 1st class cheaper and give free wifi!"
Cons: "We left Salt Lake City so late that I missed all my train connections and ruined my plans."
Cons: "Freezing flight! So cold. From Atlanta to Pensacola in June, one should not freeze."
Pros: "We actually did not fly this route. We bought a car and drove home!"
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment behind the seat"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "We had mechanical problems and had to come back to Atlanta, get off our plane and get on another one"
Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"
Cons: "That I mis my conecting flight to Washington do to one of the crew members being late"
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "The fact I arrived safely"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline"
Pros: "Great. Love first class whenever price allows."
Pros: "The gate agent for this flight was a terrific multi-tasker. He was the only one at the gate managing both the incoming flight and my outgoing flight and he handled everything so efficiently, and with patience for customers' questions. He represented Delta very well."
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twelve hours and was not given any compensation even though i had to stay the night at the airport with no blanket or pillow and no freebies of any sort. The gates kept changing. I got up to move to the correct gate at least four times during the night. The next mornings flight was behind schedule as well. I want compensation for my poor delta experience."
Pros: "Wouldn't know wasn't able to make it to the flight"
Cons: "The fact that for the second time in 2 months Delta issues kept me from making my flight"
Pros: "really helpful and friendly service and nice seats."
Pros: "My comfort zone seat"
Pros: "Left on time, got here early and the capitan was just super nice"
Pros: "Ontime boarding, few minutes delay made up enroute for ontime arrival."
Cons: "Cabin service interrupted by turbulent weather."
Pros: "The entertainment is always great on delta and they have new snacks now!"
Cons: "Cabin service took a bit longer than normal and we were stuck on the tarmack for at least 30 mins waiting to take off. Not anyone’s fault, just annoying"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Due to bad weather they kept us well informed. One hour late but not their fault."
Cons: "A little chilly in the waiting are."
Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "I used a regional certificate to upgrade; this wasn't 1st / biz class at all; the seats are just big clunky leather seats, no recline, no leg room. Really disappointing for a red eye flight across the US."
Pros: "Short eas6 trio"
Cons: "Lack if parking at airport"
Pros: "No delay and the flight was ahead of the schedule (arriving)."
Cons: "The airplane was too old and seats were too crowded."
Pros: "Troy, Karee, and all of the staff on board were amazing! One of the best flights I have ever been on. Hope they are the crew for my flight home."
Pros: "very attentive service and remarkably tasty food in first class"
Cons: "seat was tight. not much legroom and very claustrophobic when the person in front of me reclined his seat."
Fantastic plane and top notch crew. Departed on time and arrived early. Classy flight!
I have not met a person yet who has been able to figure out the American Airlines app for entertainment.
The delay could have been shorter. Rough traveling late at night with an infant and then a delay.
Pros: "Finally got me home"
Cons: "Delayed, no updates,"
Pros: "nice new plane, lots of room"
Cons: "No fuel available"
Pros: "Appreciated the opportunity to upgrade at a reasonable price because the flight was so full"

Cons: "Sears are pretty tiny for comfort"
Cons: "Seats small"
Cons: "never made it to this flight."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The jerks left early despite the fact that security and baggage were backed up. We ran to our gate and barely missed the flight. Jerks! Who leaves early when so many passengers are missing?!"
Pros: "Crew, seats, and smoothness of ride."
Cons: "You have to pay for seats to sit with your travel partner."
Pros: "Not much, but I guess I finally got to my desitination"
Cons: "They cancelled 2 of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again, even if it's the cheapest option."
Pros: "Amazing crew, comfortable seat"
Cons: "Less delays and gate changes"
Pros: "On time flight, efficient, friendly crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "I was told that 30 minutes is plenty of time to make a connection at DCA. However in order to make a connection there you need to take a bus across the tarmac. The bus sat on the tarmac loading up with way too many people for 10+ min… Almost missed our connection"
Pros: "I believe American forgot what customer service are. Their staff located at the airport is plain ignorant and could care less about helping you. They answered my questions, as if they were doing me a favor. Flight crew was professional, but cold. No one greeted us, as we boarded the plane."
Cons: "American should remember that people who board their planes are actually their customers!"
Pros: "Seat to tight"
Cons: "Better pricing"
Pros: "Landing while raining the pilots did a great job"
Cons: "faster boarding, going out of the plane, the internet on plane was included but didn’t work"
Pros: "Delayed 4 hours. Strung along the entire time. Awful experience. Inability to get hotel."
Pros: "I am handicapped so I was concerned about my walker and ability to use stairs etc. The crew on the plant and boarding area couldn’t have been more helpful. I was impressed by the comfortable seats and friendly stewardesses. After the plane landed the first officer went to get my walker so I didn’t have to wait."
Cons: "Took off 40 min late without explanation"
Pros: "Entertainment was great, amenities such as USB charger and outlets were convenient. Flight departed about 10 minutes early and arrived early as well! Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "Comfortable, fast check in, nice staff, arrived a little early, great timing. Will fly AA again"
Pros: "The Bogota based crew provided the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely pleasant and customer focused. We were flying with twins and they assisted us through out the flight. Once we landed in MIA they helped us maneuver through the maze to reach the customs & immigration area quickly. All in all a great experience."
Cons: "Kiosk sign-in tried to sell several upgrades prior to issuing boarding pass. Very irritating! Seating was very cramped"
Cons: "Delayed over two hrs due to mech. Known long befire scheduled departure according to pilot. Did not know why alt plane was not provided sooner! Not best airline as claimed!"

Cons: "No entertainment at all for this cross country trip."
Cons: "Did not get to finish the movie I was watching on my first flight and movies were not offered on this flight."
Pros: "The first leg of trip had a newer aircraft......potentially due to the "mechanical delay" that started the fiasco."
Cons: "I don't usually do reviews, but this experience has prompted me too. I usually pick American over other airlines even if the price is slightly higher but after this last fiasco I doubt I will fly with them again. From the start of the trip there was a delay. I was told that I would have to stay in a hotel in Charlotte because I would miss my connecting flight. I agreed and waited for my flight that was nearly 2 hours late. I arrived in Charlotte and retrieved my bag as instructed and went to the counter. The lady then stated that it was probably best if I tried to get on the last remaining flight even though it showed sold out because "there have been delays all day and plenty of people have been missing their connecting flights". So I rechecked my bag and headed to the game. This flight was delayed, as it was the last for the night, so that all the connecting flights could be made. Okay, that is fair enough....even though I didn't get to board and now I no longer had my bag as this is now on the plane. 30 minutes after the plane left I finally get my voucher for motel along with a $12 voucher for food that can only be used in the terminal restaurants......which are now closed for the night. After 30 minutes of trying to contact the hotel for shuttle information I was advised that they were no longer taking airline vouchers. I , again, approached the ticket counter and I was advised that I "would just have to wait because there are no rooms in the system at this time." And none of this instruction seemed professional or accommodating. After another hour I was approached that now there are no other options in their system for accommodations and I would have to pursue options on my own. So......the higher priced one way ticket just became $100 more at no fault of my own."
Pros: "Better than I thought it would be."
Pros: "Great crew is what made the short flight awesome!"
Pros: "Very friendly. Quick & semi efficient."
Cons: "Need bigger chairs for bigger people."
Pros: "Excelente la atención y los servicios prestados por la tripulación"
Pros: "There were delays beyond the pilot or crews control and they handled the situation in a very courteous and respectful way, much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic as always and put people at ease even in the midst of a pandemic."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Small seat for first class; no inflight entertainment; terrible meal; lost baggage."
Cons: "The plane was not stocked appropriately- ran out of mist drinks."
Cons: "The lady at the boarding gate at newark airport was extremely unpolite and with a very law service attitude"
Pros: "Our crew was good but everything else was awful. A 1/12 hour flight ended up with us on board for 6 hours."
Cons: "Mechanical problems.... crew out of hours.... you name it .... it happened on my flight!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather. Earlier flight delayed twice for take off."
Cons: "United's In-flight entertainment did not work."
Cons: "That I could only have one carry on an my purse was considered two, really and it was a small purse."
Cons: "I got dumped the day before I was supposed to fly to see my girlfriend. There was nothing I could do about taking the flight anyway. Because I needed fly as cheep as possible, I used you to book my flight. I tried to get a refund, but found out with fees it was going to cost more than I paid for the ticket."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2hrs"
Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very tight. Not food except snack."
Pros: "Plane was on time and even landed early"
Cons: "The gentleman sitting next to me held his duffle bag on his lap the whole flight. Take off and landing included. Take off I thought no big deal, but when it was time to land the flight attendant actually looked right at him and said nothing.. When I put my tray down, there was sugar and coffee stains on it. Luckily, I had a wet wipe to wipe it off. The attendants were not very friendly and I was disappointed with them. It just seemed like they were in a hurry. Note this was my flight from Omaha to Chicago. NOT the connecting flight Ord-DCA."
Pros: "It was a typical flight."
Cons: "The screen/ video entertainment system was broken and the flight attendant was rude about it."
Cons: "Lack of space in economy....might as well box each one of us up and stick us in the cargo hold."
Pros: "My flight was changed several times and I almost missed my connection flight international departure. But a lady at 800 customer service took care of everything. Local United personnel at Omaha airport is lack of customer service and handling knowledge."
Cons: "800 number"
Pros: "Everyone was very pleasant, flight was on time."
Cons: "Tight seating."
Pros: "All perfect! Amazing how much nicer flight staff was!!"
Pros: "Crew and staff were helpful along the way. I had a pleasant experience overall."

Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The fact that my bag got sent to LAX."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Boarded plane with my 8 week old baby. After getting settled had to deplane due to mechanical issues. Then I stalled feeding as he has to nurse during takeoff to relieve pressure. Airline kept slightly postponing it so wasn't comfortable nursing as I needed him to eat during takeoff. But no realistic time was ever given. Eventually they cancelled flight and they rebooked next day. Then united realized they would have to give travel vouchers / hotel if flight was cancelled so they re labeled it "delayed" to avoid putting everyone up in a hotel. 13.5 hrs of a delay overnight is not a delay and deserves better treatment! To add insult to injury, my GATE checked stroller took 45 min to come up to the top of the jetway. 45 minutes! I had to ask 4 times with a screaming 8 week old with nowhere to set him! The kind girl kept paging down to them but nobody would bring it up. It was absolutely horrible. Then today at check-in they couldn't figure out how to print the infant boarding pass which ultimately took 30-40 min of the lady trying to no avail. I arrived 1 hr 10 min early to my flight and nearly missed it due to United. The issues with printing my "infant voucher" caused me to have to run through the airport and frantically collapse stroller to make on time. With zero sleep thanks to the debacle the night before. Beyond disappointed and believe should be compensated for this experience."
Pros: "United wide body jet was roomy and comfortable. Even sitting in the middle seat between two strangers was not awkward or uncomfortable Easy boarding and helpful attendants on board."
Cons: "Both of my flights either did not have a working faucet or water to wash your hands in the restroom. On my outbound flight, no water would come out of the faucet. On my return flight, there was a large sticky note on the faucet indicating that it dd not work and a few sani-wipes in a box in the sink. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Checkin process was poor - unable to use kiosks; required personnel to check in. Customer rep was alone and line was long. Poor process and lots of angry customers"
Pros: "Almost didn't make my connection."
Pros: "Everyone was beyond helpful and wonderfully nice."
Pros: "The flight attendants are super duper nice. Like so nice. Too nice."
Cons: "The chairs will make your butt go numb after awhile. It's inevitable. The snacks are god awful packaged poison BUT the beverage selection is vast which it pretty dope."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, friendly staff, On time/early to arrival"
Cons: "Not a lot of space for passengers- even someone small like me at 5'2 and 120 lbs. Flight was also a bit turbulent"
Pros: "I like the many options that I had to choose from for my filghts"
Cons: "That I could get my seat assignment when I place the reservation"
Pros: "The United staff I interacted with were some of the friendliest people I'd worked with all day."
Cons: "Our first flight was delayed, which meant we'd miss our connecting flight. We were moved to a flight that would leave us in the airport for 8 hours. I called and someone got my onto an earlier flight, but when we showed up at the gate, we found out she hadn't finished the transaction and now there weren't enough seats for us. We were supposed to land in RIC by 2, but by the time we got a flight (which was again delayed), it was almost 10pm. The only helpful person I dealt with was John, who took my call to get us on another flight."
Pros: "Our flight was on time. Economy plus seats were roomy. Also, we had gate checked car seats and the pilots waited to ensure that they were delivered before de planing."
Cons: "My only complaint was that there was no food for sale. We had 2 hungry kids and we only got some free pretzels and a drink. It would have been nice if there was a snacks to purchase."
Pros: "The flight crew and flight was perfectly smooth and crew was very nice and appologetic about the delay etc. even gave me a separate snack due to food allergy."
Cons: "Delays are never fun and unfortunately our flight was delayed, but more importantly the pre-boarding staff and crew were rediculously rude. They yelled at one lady bc she didn't speak English. They were stressed I am sure with delays and working the gate that has like 5 flights leaving at once, but they could be a bit better at their job by being polite to us the customers! They were so frazzled bc of what was going on that they acted like it was our fault, which of course it isn't! Additionally, our flight was overbooked by 6 people! And had standby of 4 and the staff kept announcing they were going to kick 6 people off and we wouldn't know until we were boarding and it was going to be by whoever paid the lowest price per ticket which btw is not the policy. The United policy says that it goes by class of ticket, which probably goes hand in hand, but hey really need to get thier staff on board with the policies. It makes you feel pretty crappy sitting there waiting to see if just bc you bought your ticket on a Tuesday at a good rate that you are not going to make it home to see your family! And the people making the announcements could be a bit more chipper also, we the customers didn't overbook the flight and we surely do not want to miss said flight so don't announce over PA system in threatening way bc United is trying to make more money by overbooking flights! This might never be read, but I hope that kayak can pass along this information to the Dullus United team to try and make the flights more enjoyable in the future"
Cons: "Delayed at Chicago for 8 hours before they canceled the flight. It was beautiful & Sunny in both Chicago (depart) & Omaha (arrive) all day. The flight was most likely canceled because of an incoming flight that never arrived. Stayed at hotel on my own dime after wasting an entire day. Completely unacceptable and will never use airline for this route again."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Friendly crew. Got us there on time, despite a late start That included a gate change."
Cons: "Was asked to check my carry on bag, because the flight was full. Meaning they sold the seat I purchased for my wife (who was unable to make the flight). I did so, but when I looked in the overhead bin after the flight, it was empty. When we arrived in Denver, I waited at the baggage carousel, watched everyone pick up there bags, until there were only 5 or 6 bags going around. I then went to a counter behind the carousel and asked about my bag. I was only then told that my bag had been there the whole time I was waiting."
Pros: "The crew members were friendly and efficient."
Pros: "People were very nice and friendly"
Cons: "Flight was rough & delayed"
Pros: "Just noticed survey on my flight from Omaha to Chicago. Sadly I woke up to find that that flight was cancelled and I had to reschedule and flown to Denver instead."
Cons: "The stewardess wasn't the least bit helpful. I did not see any friendliness on her part to anyway. It was like she had to do the job but didn't like being there. So very weird. My original flight to Milwaukee with stop in Chicago was cancelled. This was a flight that took me to Denver and then Milwaukee. Therefore cold for over two hours. Not a good experience with United."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We wont ever fly United again."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The older female attendant was extremely rude . Noted her inability to communicate with an obvious mentally challenge teenager. This attenders needs to retire she appears to be very tired of her job giving United a very poor image."
Pros: "I did not like anything. Please people don't book through kayak. Scam website"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Stayed at airport for more than 2 hours. Baggage lost."
Pros: "Even though we left almost 30 minutes behind schedule on a hour and a half flight, the pilot made up the time in the air and we touched down 2 minutes ahead of our original time. I know a bunch of people had connecting flights and we're very happy."
Cons: "Departure was delayed for unknown reason, first flight of the day and the plane was sitting at the gate 2 hours prior to it's scheduled departure time."
Pros: "All the staff working for United Airlines are very professional and caring. Wifi onboard was fantastic!!"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Not being in first class"
