Pros: "Nice plane and comfy seats"
Cons: "The stewards were not at all helpful or as friendly as most of the delta staff! I was so disappointed with their service. We had TWO delays making us arrive in SAT AT almost 2 am. Hence there were a lot of empty seats. We asked if we or even one of us could move into the …at least three empty rows…and they would not let us as they were they comfort plus section and it cost more…NO ONE WAS USING THESE SEATS!! So they let the passengers be crammed together in the rest of the plane and left numerous empty seats that could have been used! It’s was just rude. They also served drinks and never checked back to pick up the garbage. Didn’t tell us to raise our seats or put up our table trays before landing. So, as I exited the plane I handed them my garbage! I wasn’t going to be rude and leave it in the seat pocket or my seat …where I found crumbs of food on when I boarded the plane. Was just very dissatisfied with this crew!! I have been flying a lot lately using delta. I’ve had some delays but they’ve always been accommodating, this crew was not! What a shame!"

Cons: "Seats are really tight"
Pros: "Better seats"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."
Cons: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."
Pros: "for a 9.5 hour flight, the seat was actually pretty comfortable. The A330 is definitely more comfortable than 767. While the food sucked on my outbound flight from atlanta to london, the food on the amsterdam to atlanta flight was pretty good. there was a lunch, a snackbox and then a hot snack before landing. There was plenty of beer to drink so that made the flight better."
Cons: "first, the entertainment system was busted. you could use the flight tracker and play games, but couldn't watch any movies or tv shows. They only told us about this 5 minutes before boarding. There was wifi so you could stream shows to a tablet, but that assumed you had a tablet and that it was charged because the usb ports on the nonfunctioning entertainment system were, you guessed it, nonfunctional. Fortunately we had charged tablets and were able to stream some shows but they kept buffering and locking up because the gogo wifi wasn't working very well. About half the flight attendants were friendly but the other half obviously didn't want to be there. The last half hour was pretty bumpy due to remants of a hurricane in the area. The person behind me was frantically looking for a barf bag but we found out that most of the seats didn't have them. So that could have been ugly. I flew delta for the skymiles but based on this trip I will either fly on their partners (virgin, klm, airfrance) for reduced mile credit, or choose a different airline."
Pros: "Quick and easy flight. Took about an hour and twenty minutes."
Pros: "Updated plane, movies are old but a verity"
Cons: "Lost two pieces of luggage"
Pros: "Flights were both on time and boarded quickly. Crew was wonderful!"
Pros: "lte leaving Houston, cancelled flight back from Atlanta, reset to 3 hrs later, wound up leaving 12 hrs later."
Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."
Cons: "Boarding. Was late because 1- airplane arrive about 10 minutes late and 2-have to wait passengers coming from Orlando."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times without any explanations, and we barely made our connection in Atlanta. Also, Delta used a commuter plane that really is more suited to shorter flights. It's okay, but that's about the best that can be said for it."
Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable-love the 2 seats!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Seriously, all was great. Usually is. Love Delta"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Seats were impossibly small. Family in front of us kept removing their face masks. Wife pulled hers down to take selfies every few minutes and husband consistently wore his below his nose. Flight attendant asked him once to pull it up and he did, only to pull it down again a few minutes later."
Cons: "Sat cheek to jowels in middle seat. Seems like a train wreck about to happen with Covid"
Cons: "They make flights to depart on time. Also they should tell anything about the reason when they are delaying four times for a flight"
Cons: "Very close quarters, food was what you might expect - just ok, media /entertainment console not working and then we had the crying baby. Suggest priority boarding, go for additional leg room, bring your own media entertainment and purchase good noise cancelation headphones."
Pros: "yes thank you"
Cons: "all vary good"
Cons: "Instead of taking my one half of one ounce plastic cup half-full of wine, the stewad, allowed me to keep it. I love common sense."
Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"
Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean...had just been renovated"
Cons: "I can’t believe therebwere no flights from MIA to RDU from 11:30 to 4:30 :(. (Original flight was a 3.5 hour layover and that was bad emough)...and then it was changed to this flight:("
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Cons: "Paid for gogoinflight, then is had a big error red screen, that said keep trying back in a few minutes. Never worked. Was not happy. Long flight."
Pros: "Very efficient attendant who compensated for hot jet"
Cons: "My wife’s air vent was not working so we had to share. This flight was the worst of 3 during our trans-Atlantic travels despite being the shortest. I wish the previous pax had closed the shades to keep the a/c cool."
Pros: "Very nice hard product complimented by a great cabin crew."
Cons: "The crew set the bar too high for future flights :)"
Pros: "Great passengers and crew"
Cons: "Gluten free meal not provided as requested. Entertainment totally lacking."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking in, the counter agent first told us we would need a visa to go to the USA. We are American citizens. Then she insisted that we buy checked bag allowance even though our tickets already included checked bags. We had already flown the 1st leg with checked baggage, why would we purchase tickets with no baggage allowance coming home?! The stroller we gate checked was left at the end of the oversized baggage carousel because of the ground crew not wanting to unload gate checked items. I will never EVER fly an AA codeshare flight."
Cons: "Entertainment via internet could NEVER be really be done complitly. And the flight attendants did not know how to help costumers"
Pros: "Fast trip!"
Cons: "We were delayed because of a broken tray table and then the broken tray table was mine. But we made it, and the flight was good, so it was fine."
Pros: "The quickness at which they discovered my suitcase was missing even before I got to the luggage carousel and sent me text. The quickness at which my suitcase was found, put on another plane and returned to me the next day by noon to my home. There was nothing missing."
Cons: "That damage on my suitcase is not covered. Corner was torn 8 inches and a tear in the fabric. But it wasn't my expensive suitcase. It got caught on the carousel I sure because the paper identifying strips got caught somewhere."
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"
Pros: "First Class seating was of course better than economy."
Cons: "Flight to Maui had no Mai Tai drinks available, no heated towels, no dessert, barely any service from the flight attendant(s)."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."
Pros: "Food was ok and options for entertainment"
Cons: "I was sold a British Airways Flight and got AA"
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and gave great service!"
Pros: "I was really impressed by the dinner and breakfast choices. I liked that the plane had several bathrooms, and great-looking staff. It’s sad to fly somewhere and see staff not care about their appearance. They were also very attentive and personable."
Cons: "I’m a tall person so sitting through a 9-hour flight was hard for me. I tried to go to sleep but leg room was an issue. I sat in the middle row in the back center section of the plane."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Pros: "mas de media hora en la pista y 15 minutos mas para desembarcar"
Cons: "second security check at gate where they wouldn't allow me to bring water even though I was sick and bought it after 1st security also threw away my lotion that had gotten through first security"
Pros: "Finally taking off"
Cons: "Being stuck on the runway"
Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly helpful airline atendents."
Cons: "Nothing great"
Pros: "More improved than the last trip I took with AA to Denver. Efficient boarding."
Pros: "Grest staff"
Cons: "Thought the first row seating would provide extra leg room which the reservation page said it would and we paid extra for the seats - not so. it also felt quite claustrophobic with a panel within a short distance of our faces. We had upgraded for better seats but it turns out the seating wasn't better at all. The flight home in seats much further back were MUCH more comfortable. I'm thinking the airline shouldn't book the front seats by the panel as 'better' for the extra price as they were definitely not."
Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Pros: "I liked boarding on time food ok crew freindly"
Cons: "My seat was so bad I could not recline it and it was tilted to one side"
Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "There were seats on the plane that were "inoperative". How is that possible or safe or legal?"
Pros: "Flight was delayed and hour and they lost out baggage. Did not have clothes for 2 days"
Pros: "He enjoyed everything about the flight it was comfortable the crew was excellent he met nice ppl thank you for the safety and class."
Pros: "I like the entertainment choice"
Cons: "No snacks I had to pay for my bag I'm sticking to southwest"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "I would like to be able to let the passenger next to me to close the shade. He slept , the sun was not in his face ."
Pros: "Individual TV. Price."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Flight attendants were equally bad. Only one attendant was helpful and accommodating. They act like they don't like being there. Need to take lessons from Emirites Airlines. Or Swiss Air. Or even Ethiopian Airlines. Just smile. Be genuinely nice. This bunch were grumpy, conceded, and unfriendy."
Pros: "The staff was so nice and helped me find my way around."
Cons: "Food prices a bit high when compared to buying the same thing outside the airport."
Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."
Pros: "the crew was nice and helpful, the seat had a lot of room"
Cons: "The plane seemed old and didn't have the features I expect in first class"
Pros: "The passengers"
Cons: "A/c was broken"
Cons: "Cancelled, had to stay in Dallas until next day"
Pros: "Service, comfort, timeliness."
Cons: "Food was marginal, especially the chicken in the salad, which was petrified."
