Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in seat"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "That Delta was not more accommodating when I missed my flight.. Got totally lost in Austin. Have never driven there before and highways were difficult at times. $503 to get on another flight home. Ended up getting better deal at Southwest. Will most likely stick with them next time I am forced to fly."

Cons: "Rapid City, I could check my BAG through to PDX."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. We even arrived a little early in Rochester."

Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Seats still tight"
Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."
Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "On time with early arrival"
Cons: "Small plane Little communication from crew Security took forever to get through at RC airport"
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."
Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."
Pros: "Kind bar"
Cons: "Booked my flight and paid to pick my seats. Did not end up getting the seats I booked. Boarding and departing was extremely slow."
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Cons: "Was not a wheelchair waiting for Wallace."
Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."
Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Cons: "Due to weather patterns, we sat on the runway for 3 hours waiting to take off. There was approx. 50+ planes ahead of us. I know this because I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot on his way home. About 2 hours in, there was 30 planes left to take off, and then us. They air traffic control people were only letting off one plane per minute which is what was holding us. THEN after the 3 hours on the runway, our crew timed out and the brought us back to gate saying we were not taking off. At the gate, they informed us the flight was not 'cancelled' but 'delayed' to the following morning. I/m not sure how a 16 hour difference is considered 'delayed', but I digress. All Delta reps had NO idea the time of the new flight the following morning and told us all to just 'keep checking the app'. Now, fortunately for me I live in Brooklyn and could just go home. But what about everyone who was at LGA as a layover? I heard from multiple passengers they had to spend the night in a hotel, that Delta did not pay for. We finally got notice the new flight was scheduled for 9:30AM, which they AGAIN delayed until 11:30AM. Many people did not get the second change, and were already at LGA for the 9:30AM flight. To say Delta's handling of this was poor is an understatement. We knew when we got on that plane the crew was going to time out. Again, I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot who told me to 'get comfy, we're gonna be here awhile' the minute I sat down. Delta should have given us a fresh crew, or had a backup one prepared. I understand the weather is out of there control, and I understand you can't have a tired crew piloting an airplane, but there are other ways to have us take off remotely on schedule."
Pros: "They forgot the CC reader so drinks were free. The free GoGo media is cool."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rescheduled 3 times. Delayed. Tiny plane = uncomfortable and turbulent."
Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."
Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."
Cons: "Ok. My wife and I are both disabled and use our own scooters to get around airports. My scooter broke down when I got off the plane. Toronto airport became a LOT longer pushing my scooter then. Fortunately CANADIANS GAVE ME A HAND TO GET THROUGH CUSTOMS, BAGGAGE CLAIM AND CAR RENTAL. Ok, what to do if something like this happens in America. Maybe to work with security staff cause I was in dire straights without the Canadians to help me. Thank them all. Alton Cason"
Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."
Cons: "Wifi was too slow to stream (audio only) a live sporting event. No satellite tv for the entire flight with no announcement - I had to ask the crew twice what was up."
Pros: "Everything was average but the crew"
Cons: "I found them rude and not helpful regarding my connecting flight"
Pros: "Even with a 90 minute delay getting out of Seatac caused because some one checked their luggage but didn't get on the plane, Delta made sure that everyone made their connecting flights in Tokyo. In my hurry I left a charging cable on the late flight but right after I got settled on the next flight, and before I'd even figured out that I'd left it, a Delta attendant handed it to me."
Cons: "Second flight was sold out and it was hot inside the plane the entire time."
Pros: "Very comfortable for such a quick flight."
Pros: "Flight delayed every 15 mins for hours then finally canceled. Delta did nothing to assist. Spent 12 hrs at JFK and Missed Christmas with family."
Cons: "It was hot on the plane and the gate situation was a disaster. So chaotic and stressful. So crowded. Asking people to take later flights. Sucked."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Departed and arrived on time."
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!"
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Cons: "No food or beverage service during covid-19"
Cons: "Same old tiny uncomfortable commuter jet."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing. It was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Crew was nice, polite, and fairly accommodating. Would prefer to be given the full can of soda, instead of a glass which is 1/2 can and need to ask for more. Xtra leg room seat was ok."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't great. Long lines. Deask lady gave my extra leg room seat, that I had bought and paid for, away to another person which made my boarding pass invalid. Made my boarding longer. Then no overhead space avail when I did get on and I was in bulkhead seat. I got my seat back.. But it was annoying, unnecessary, and uncalled for. And the woman who did it did not apologize."
Cons: "3 hr delay and had to change gates"
Pros: "On time, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats are too tight. Board from the outsides in, not front to back. Windows seats in the back go first (after first class, ADA, etc), and fill the cheap seats back to front. As it is, literally everyone with an aisle seat ends up on first and overheads fill before people have a chance to know, requiring a lot of against-the-flow foot traffic and delays pushing away from gate."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Comfortable seats & fast boarding"
Pros: "Crew was fine but you can’t hear anything they are saying over intercom"
Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"
Pros: "Direct flight and good personal service provided by crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overbooked causing further delay at departure gate. Plane is small and cramped."
Pros: "Aubrie and Claire"
Cons: "Engine could have started. It didn’t."
Cons: "Chicago to Venice flight was amazing. We were in premium economy, although the seats were larger it was hard to sleep in them, we all felt it needed some back support in order to sleep better. Crew was fantastic, would fly AA again internationally"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay on the ground - very poor communication from Crew"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no accommodation for seat assignments and the lady at the gate was so rude for even just asking to sit next to my fiancé even though there were tons of single people on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was 90 min late due to mechanical issue. Missed next two flights, was rebooked in coach vs paid for first class."
Pros: "The Flight Crew was amazing. They accommodated us very well. We were two toddlers, a pregnant mother and a handicapped senior."
Cons: "The counter representatives were terrible. They discriminated us & forced us to check our stroller at the counter & not at the gate. Even though another family had the exact same stroller & was permitted to enter with their stroller. We were two toddlers, a pregnant mother and a handicapped senior."
Cons: "Last minute (after partial boarding) they had to switch planes due to a "maintenance issue" which I would think they would have caught earlier."
Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"
Cons: "Delay luggage"
Cons: "Commuter jet boarding at DCA is going to stink until the new terminal is completed. Just is."
Cons: "The flight is delayed for 5 hours without any compensation"
Pros: "The staff was fantastic"
Cons: "Well my flight got delayed four separate times. I was stuck in LAX for 3 hours. So much that booked another flight with another airline for the following morning. I had to book a hotel nearby LAX just so I could somewhere to sleep for the night. My luggage made it to Chicago safely, but I didn’t at least not with American Airlines. It took them an hour to tell us that they reassigned the pilot to another flight, not only that when it was delayed the first initial time (40 minute delay) about ten minutes before we were supposed to board they tell us that the flight attendant crew is going to take 30 minutes to get to the gate. Not only but those poor airline service staff were completely unaware of all these changes! They had to find out from the passengers what was going on. Honestly I will never fly with American Airlines ever again!!!"
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Cons: "I was in such pain by the time I left this flight, the seats were horrible."
Pros: "Despite the long flight the cabin crew took excellent care of the passengers. Good food, entertainment and a quiet and dim cabin for napping"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed somewhat by a service door not completely latched. The plan returned to get it closed, then was promptly airborne. After the delays, the flight actually made it to our destination by our scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."
Pros: "the minute you are on the air the flights where very good"
Cons: "this ticket that included the flight was operated by american airline and jet blue and was under Iberia name... actually there was no father to that flight! and i couldn't make any checkin on line and needed to carry my bag to my connection flight.. and i did buy one ticket ! that included the connections."

Pros: "Entertainment was good, except the system wasn't working the first 30min of flight."

Pros: "They moved me to a seat of my choice because I was in a middle seat with a infant."
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "After I pledged 25 years ago I would not travel with AA, this recent trip to Miami was delayed 30 minutes going to Miami and one hour goin back to Panama."
Cons: "Ticket counter very long in Miami. Kiosk did not work. Flight delayed in both routes."
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
Pros: "Pleasant flight for the hour ride. Not bumpy at all."
Pros: "He gave me a meal voucher in Dallas which made me feel a little better about the four hour delay until the next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like the idea that I've had a four hour delay due to the fact that the airplane and DeRego showed up an hour late. There were no explanations and no apologies. I got to Dallas I was furious complain to customer relations. I at least wanted them to let me in to the admirals club so I could be comfortable for the next four hours. They refuse that but one lady at the customer relations apartment did give me a meal voucher which made me feel a little better."
Pros: "Quick boarding, no shuttle! Pilot very informative"
Cons: "We were never asked for beverage service.Also when arriving and exiting to retrieve our bags when congested with baggage no room to stand and wheelchairs all at once trying to exit up ramp.Very unorganized and chaotic."

Pros: "Good schedule"
Cons: "the commuter terminal in Dulles is miserable and chaotic, but not really United's fault"
Pros: "Uncomfortable worn seat. Too small."
Cons: "Plane smelled."
Cons: "Air conditioning was not working. Very hot on plan. Light switch above my seat was broken. Luggage crew cracked off one of the “feet” on my luggage. Overall terrible service and flight."
Pros: "Weather delays and the Boeing 737 problems a little out of their control. Some things could have done better, but some good employee efforts."
Cons: "Small planes are subpar.. Food useless. Baggage fees. When things go bad you're on your own."
Cons: "The pilot to be on time"
Cons: "Literally lazy United Airlines caused this entire trip to be 3.5 hours late. Rote incompetence from UA. And they were rude about it too."
Pros: "FA did his best"
Cons: "Flight not cancelled"
Cons: "cramped seats made for an uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Cons: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "3 row seats such a tight squeeze"
Cons: "My united app didnt find my flight;"
Pros: "Getting home safely!!"
Pros: "Plane was delayed 87 minutes because the plane had maintenance issues that the air and did not organize and plan better. For their error, I missed my client and got fired."
Cons: "The airline not getting me on the Dayton-Newark then Newark-Rochester flight so I could get to my destination on time. The agent at the airport was not helping or listening. Now I miss my client loss a lot of money for the day and I got fired."
Pros: "Again, boarding was very quick and the flight did not take as long as anticipated."
Cons: "There was a leak from the overhead panel directly ahead of me. I had planned to do some reading on the flight, but after noticing the water was splashing on my paperwork I opted not to."
Cons: "Extremely small plane. No tv in headrests or on plane, Not enough room for everyone's carry on, no usb charging ports, don't offer unlimited snacks and beverages. They did not offer ANY drinks or snack on this flight which is ridiculous."
Cons: "Basic Economy fare will flag at the kiosk for check-in. I'd rather have a warning to indicate no Carry On bag allowed, and flag at the gate for them to check. Both legs of the trip caused an extra 5-10 minutes to wait for help to proceed"
Cons: "They should board the plane from the back to front, it just makes sense to do it this way, less people out if place and it would board faster"
Cons: "My flight was delayed (not due to weather) almost 4 hrs"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Kansas City airport has to be the worst in the country. Over an hour to get through TSA."
Cons: "I was to be in Kansas City at 4PM and did not get in until after 11PM. Two planes with mechanical problems. The return flight was ahead of schedule all the way."
Pros: "That i made it home"
Cons: "This flight is always late. And the original arrival time is late to start with."
Cons: "After a three hour layover we were all set to board our jet when we were told that there were issues and would be delayed. After 2 hours they boarded us on an old propeller plane that was loud and uncomfortable. A man was forced to move from his seat in the front of the plane to the back because of weight balancing problems."
Cons: "Departure was delayed. No explanation. The boarding area is crowded and confusing. The plane's bins were too small for roller boards so passengers had to carry bags outdoors in snow and terrible wind, to get them loaded. The Newark airport where the plane landed was miserable! Departure from Newark was worse than landing if that could be possible! Awful!"
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
Cons: "Let's see my seat did not recline. The stewardess bumped into me every time she passed. The flight attendant was wearing way way way too much cologne. They had no room for my carry on. The beverages took way to long. I could not use the Internet. You changed my flight time over and over and over I was supposed to leave at 5 I didn't leave until 10. I could not sleep because the flight attendants was wearing Christmas lights and they would wake me up and she keep bumping in to be be is she did not know how to walk in the isles. The cookie were stale. There was something in my cup so I could not drink my free drink. There's more. It was the worst flight I have ever been on."
Cons: "Loaded us all on the plane stowed our luggage all belted in they then announced a few minutes later to get off the plane because the pilot was still in Burlington Vermont and take luggage with us, including red tag luggage. Never should have loaded us when pilot not yet arrived. Plenty of irate customers."
Pros: "The staff were good."
Cons: "I didn't like how we left more than two hours late. United always pulls this kind of thing. The flight was overbooked, so we weren't going anywhere until people volunteered to take later flights. To allow enough time for someone to volunteer, aircraft maintenance was 'required', a scenario I have seen on a few other United flights. Honestly, I will never fly United again and am cancelling my future flights in favor of taking the train instead. It takes eight hours instead of a theoretical 1.5 hours, but at least it is reliable and not much worse than the ACTUAL time it takes to fly United. Worst airline ever. Barf."
Cons: "Not even beverage service. Water only"
Pros: "I liked that the crew tried their best to make sure that everyone was happy. Key word was tried"
Cons: "Everything almost we was delayed by almost 3 hours. Crew members kept giving us false hope for no reason"
Pros: "Small airport, comfortable seating, polite crew"
Cons: "Snack wasn't my style"
Cons: "They kept pushing back take-off, pretending we were going to board, and then rambled into the microphone so no one could hear what they said."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful. When overhead storage was full, bags were checked at no additional cost."
Cons: "Had trouble with the highly advertised entertainment. On the trip from Rapid to Chicago, the entertainment wouldn't work. I was fairly comfortable in my aisle seat, but think it I had to be in a center of window seat, I would have been very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Plane was delayed Missed connection in Denver Then while on plane about to take off, pilot realized plane lacked fuel to make our destination My 4 1/2 hour flight took 9.... Terrible experience"
Cons: "4 hour delay out of DC"
Cons: "The fact that the person next to was in my seat as well"
Pros: "Fantastic service"
Pros: "It was fine for the most part. No frills, quick flight."
Cons: "With a tight connection, they should really at least sell snack boxes on these quick flights. By the time we arrived in ROC, all the restaurants were closed. Hungry humans."
Pros: "I liked when I got home 12 plus hours later than I was supposed to!"
Cons: "The three canceled flights and 7 delays that I was out through were awful!"
Pros: "The staff were very professional yet friendly"
Pros: "quick easy boarding"
Cons: "Old plane. Magazines were old and missing several pages."
Pros: "The flight was short once we finally got in the air."
Cons: "Waited forever for plane to arrive. Waited for repairs. Once boarded, waited for more repairs. Supposed to leave at 12:30pm; left at 4:30pm."
Pros: "My flight was rescheduled so I hope I did not get charged for another flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time, workers were courteous, gates were easy to find."
Pros: "On time Fast Snoith"
Cons: "Seat was hell Boarding !!!!! The terminal was hot old confusing Even if local think about the wonderful new bus terminals that are being built Tech could go s long way Use apos to highlight boarding ligistics Location and direction sids Etc etc etc Dulles gets an F here"
Pros: "The entire duration of the flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The temperature was incredibly hot."
