Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."

Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"

Pros: "Delta siempre excelente servicio al cliente."
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Pros: "On time with early arrival"

Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."

Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."
Cons: "Airplanes are filthy; asked for Coke without ice & the flight attendant filled my cup halfway. Unbelievably cheap! I was afraid to ask for more, for fear that I'd get an up charge!"
Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"
Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"
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: "The boarding process was horrible. The agents we not organized."
Cons: "Bring back the individual TV's"
Pros: "The flight wasn’t over booked or full"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Had no problems with my carry on."
Cons: "Paying for an assigned seat is ridiculous so my friend and I didn’t sit next to each other."
Pros: "Airlines have no respect for customers anymore, planes are big buses with uncomfortable seating and little more. They nickel and dime you and punish you when you don't want to leave your salary with them."
Cons: "Get rid of the caste system you have imposed and all the fees you want to charge for everything. More room for real people, not seating for leprechauns. Better boarding procedures. Pretty much everything could be better but they have no interest in making it better just charg as much as they can."
Pros: "Not too much delay/ wait between flights"
Cons: "snacks ?"
Pros: "It was standard AA service"
Cons: "After flying in Delta Comfort+, American’s forward economy section is just nothing."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "I'm a frequent flyer with AA; it's very dissapointing that I have missed my connections with AA about 60% of the time this year. I don't know what's going on with the airline, but it seems they are falling behind the curve in terms of punctuality. Seriously thinking about changing airlines."

Cons: "Flight was 90 min late due to mechanical issue. Missed next two flights, was rebooked in coach vs paid for first class."

It took another 30 minutes to get one! I realize when flights are late there are ripple effects but this was excessive."
Cons: "Inconsistent baggage rules across employees in different parts of the company."
Pros: "I was in first class thanks to an upgrade. The flight attendant was very nice. But the amenities are total garbage - no seatback in-flight entertainment, no power."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment except on your own device. No power, ensuring your device will die on a long flight. The old US Airways fleet from the Northeast is awful."
Pros: "Convenient without problems"
Pros: "Deplaning in White Plains"
Cons: "Boarding the way there, they did not honor my AA Advantage card to board earlier because my boarding pass did not say so. Even after seeing it said so in the computer system, they refused to honor it. So this time, I gave up and boarded with the last group. No prior warning was given that this plane would not allow for carry on luggage in overhead bins. Further were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies."

The experience through American was superb but I would of liked clarity on such airline I was going to fly with."
Pros: "Announcements and directions on landing in Philadelphia were very complete and helpful. Crew came around multiple times offering drinks."
Cons: "Baggage unloading took 40 minutes to begin. Caused jam up behind other arriving flights at customs and everyone in big rush to catch connecting flights.
