Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "Not having a bunch of crying babies."
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "There was one flight attendant who was very rude."
Cons: "Well if my future father in law was on the flight it would have been wonderful, but he passed away July 7th, and I did get refunded, and we are mourning his loss and keep getting notifications about the flight and emails which makes it very difficult mentally. So it would be nice if Delta would get their process of refunds especially when it's a death to maybe not get notified. I was the one that purchased the tickets for him in April."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Boarding went very smoothly and the flight left on time. Baggage was very quick when we arrived in Seattle as it was already coming out when we arrived in the baggage claim area."
Cons: "I would have like to have been offered disinfectant wipes to use on the food tray. Otherwise it was a perfect experience."
Cons: "Temperature inside airplane extremely hot."

Cons: "The flight was 2 hours plus late and we couldn't get an accurate update as to when to pick up our son. We got text messages that were never updates, online your information was wrong and when we called agents had the wrong flight information. Terrible experience all around."
Pros: "Flight was on time; captain was clear and funny."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "Flight schedule and the various flight options with regardss to the number of departure and return flights."
Cons: "Delta flight crew complacency and the lack of on board options. I flew first class and the food options were very limited. The crew also seem to have the attitude as though the passengers should be automatically understanding and satisfied. This was mostly on the return flight, an all male crew."
Cons: "The staff"
Pros: "That they got me to where I was going"
Cons: "The fact that Aeromexico/Delta and their predatory pricing charged us 28USD for a checked bag in an INTERNATIONAL flight, in clear defiance of Mexico's Law of Civil Aviation new reform. Also, shame on you Kayak for not bringing this up to our attention when buying our tickets."
Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."
Pros: "My flight was delayed 40 minutes in Detroit after a 3 hour lay over we boarded the plane. Then 45 minutes into the flight they said the landing gear light came on and they would be going back to change plans. My mother with Lymes disease was waiting 3 hours in Providence supposed to arrive a 11:50 instead 2:50am we were so tired missed a day of vacation."
Pros: "The plane was not so new or good"
Cons: "The plane and the atention"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and travel delayed by 24 hours."
Pros: "delays for a long time to get to the gate than delays for more than 2 hours for a crew to come in..."
Cons: "We were delayed. Then they boarded us and we left the gate to then sit out in the 108F sun. They knew before we pushed back the wheels up time was extended again."
Pros: "The stewards/stewardess were very helpful. The trip was very pleasant."
Cons: "Great customer service from all staff. Mannerisms, snacks, and safety precautions."
Cons: "Plane was hot but that seems common for these small planes during the summer."
Pros: "Seating was nice...comfortable. Lighting was good, captain wasn't too chatty :)"
Cons: "This flight attendant was just terrible. Wish I could remember her name for this review... She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."
Pros: "Attendants and entertainment"
Cons: "Delays for no explained reason"
Pros: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class so had more room, nicer seats. No lines at TSA, had the first gate past security so a short walk. Nice shopping and food choices."
Cons: "No meal served on flight, only drinks and cookies / popcorn. No entertainment at all. You have to provide your own device. There was wifi but not free, it was so slow I couldn't download the entertainment app, so I gave up and slept. No access to Delta lounge with domestic first class WTF?"
Pros: "On time departure and slightly early arrival"
Cons: "Airline food is just so inadequate in every way."
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: "The plane departed on time with no delay."
Cons: "They had two JFK-bound flights leaving from the adjacent gates at the exact same time. So your "10:30 a.m. to JFK" could have been either gate 35 or 36, and the doors were so close that the people were in one big, undifferentiated mass...rather than two separate boarding areas or lines. That may have been a problem of the Reykjavik airport rather than the airline."
Cons: "After a grueling 14 hour flight back to the states from Asia, got notification that my Delta flight was further delayed an additional 3.5 hrs from the layover of 2hrs, so I was at the airport for a good part of the day and did not get home till midnight. Altogether 24+ hrs of no real sleep. To add insult to injury, a Delta representative called and apologized, offering a $100 voucher or gift certificate. Raised expectation that they might actually do the right thing. I then received a Delta email that says "Your day just got better", except there was nothing but ads and enter to bid for things. Overall bad experience when I really needed them to get me home on time."
Pros: "First flight was not sold out which allowed me to change seats"
Pros: "After canceled, Delta had a hotel and found new flight for next day. Shuttle to and from hotel provided."
Cons: "Ten gate changes. Rescheduled for 15 to 45 minutes each time for 6 hours, this lead passengers to believe flight would still happen. Which a backup flight was not booked. Frustration!"
Pros: "Excellent crew staff helping elderly handicapped man. Thank you from Team Trump."
Cons: "Snack would have been nice. Haven’t eaten since 6am before we left providence"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."
Pros: "Smooth. We will definitely fly AA again."
Pros: "It was on time,!!!"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent, flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing for this flight."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Between mechanical, weather, lightning, fueling/routing delays; I have been pushed back at least 4 hours from my original arrival time at my final destination."
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "AA is rated next to last in being on time. It shows. Seats were uncomfortable. At least the interactive screen in the seat back worked well, and was informative."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 1/2 hrs causing missed meetings"
Pros: "They have Wow Bao in the airport."
Cons: "Being allowed to fly on the plane."
Cons: "Delayed more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Delayed rerouted delayed again horrible airline this is why I stopped flying American"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice and tried to make our long delay tolerable"
Cons: "Why do you board a flight when the airport has grounded takeoffs? Just to meet some stupid metric for on-time departures, you make 100 people sit in the plane for 2 hrs, when you could have just let them wait to board. Misery."
Pros: "Flight attendant was great, plane was comfortable and clean"
Cons: "No WiFi, it was delayed, bags came off a different belt so we didn’t find them for 30 minutes... but at least we found them"
Pros: "The plane has no individual entertainment option. The common screen has NBC on American which has a few shows to watch."
Cons: "The only option for individual entertainment is to have another mobile device. The common screen worked but the headphone jack did not so I could not hear any of the entertainment offered."
Cons: "The aircraft was very old and the seats where hard to sit the crew were not so good, we were thrusting all the trip."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Seatbelt was far too short for someone plus sized."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Too little legroom."
Cons: "Overhead bins were full before my seat, so bag had to go in one behind me and it was a disaster trying to get it when it was time to get off the plane"
Pros: "Boarding went well. The service was good. The seats were pretty solid. I like the 2-4-2 seating on the A-332. AA check-in went very smoothly."
Cons: "The touch screens were fairly poor on the entertainment centers. The meals were just OK. The headrests on the seats weren't as supportive as I'd have like on a long flight."
Pros: "No problems, arrived early"
Pros: "The flight was fine once we took off, but we sat on the runway for over two hours before we were able to take off. Also, being expected to pay extra for a seat sucks!"
Cons: "The flight was fine. The selection of films was excellent, lots to choose from including some very recent releases."
Pros: "Our seat was in a row with more leg space and this was wonderful for my husband who is tall. Also the entertainment system was great and the crew very nice."
Cons: "The food in this flight was TERRIBLE! It had been a long time since I had had such poor food on a flight. Also the delay on this flight made us miss our connection to Madrid and navigating Heatheow was a bit of a nightmare."
Pros: "the flight was nearly empty so everyone got to stretch out and there was almost always a restroom available"
Cons: "I got a lot of engine noise so I didn't enjoy the entertainment as much"
Cons: "Plane was cold, seats old and uncomfortable"
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "small jetcraft"
Pros: "No breakfast"
Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Pros: "We had two medical emergency on board so the flight attendant took care of them really well"
Cons: "They check in my hand carry my whole point of carrying is not to be bother with claing my luggage"
Pros: "Had no problems. Everything went smoothly thank God."
Pros: "boarding process"
Cons: "seats feel crowded. the actual seat is very uncomfortable, they lack padding."
Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."
Cons: "Horrible - Flight was diverted to IAD for no legitimate reason. Rebooked out of DCA with no travel vouchers. Most likely never booking with American Airlines again."
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Flight departed on time.our trip out there was disappointing , causing us to get there very late costing us money."
Cons: "Airline did not notify us that as of 10-15-16 the Samsung Note 7 phone could not be bought on the plane. Because my sister Phillip Mae had a meeting at 10am in Greensboro, N.C. she was forced to give her phone to American Airline."
Cons: "seating was very uncomfortable crew was extremely rude no entertainment at all for the 5 hours flight"
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Pros: "I sat next to my wife"
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Pros: "Treated like a person not a ticket"
Pros: "No complaints"
Cons: "It's was good"
Pros: "The onboard crew was amazing. No problems there. The flight was decent."
Cons: "Both ways I had delayed trips. On my way back my first flight was running late. So arriving at my connecting airport I literally had to RUN clear across be airport and the attendant tells me I was a "no show". So I would have to wait and go on a different flight. The plane was still there. It was 25 minutes before take off time. And she rerouted me onto a different aircraft in which I had to RUN to the other side of the airport again. Only to find out this flight was delayed for 45 minutes. In which adding on to me already delayed flight. I understand some things are out of everyone's control. But the lady made me feel like I was just looking around in shops instead of being where I needed. Never again."
Cons: "Airline didn't take customs for an international flight into account when scheduling the flight. We had to wait over an hour for "customs" to attend to the arriving flight."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Delayed flight No food/drink service offered"
Cons: "Broken seat and terrible gogo video experience with an attendant crew that was dysfunctional together for food/beverage service. I prefer to not fly AA."
Cons: "My son and I were scheduled to leave Providence to Philadelphia on Monday at 6:05. Flight went through a series of delays until we were finally informed that our flight would not make the flight departing Philly to SF. Rather than fly to Philly during the DNC, we decided to SPEND ANOTHER NIGHT IN PROVIDENCE and take the flight out the next day. This part of the trip caused me to lose a day of work and spend more money on a hotel and meals. This was very poor planning on your part since there were flights flying in and out of both places, but your company was short one aircraft that would have gotten my son and I home on time!!! This was my last flight on American Airlines and I will be sure to spread the word to my friends and family that you have become too unreliable!!"
Pros: "The plane broke in D.C. I had to rent a car to finish the last leg of my trip. They probably won't reimbursement me for either. I try never to book with AA, but it was last minute and I didn't have a choice."
Cons: "Stop saying sorry and just be better."
Pros: "too many gate changes and delays"
Pros: "Flight was late. Sat on Tarmac for 30 minutes at end of flight with no gate to exit."
