Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good! No complaints, no suggestions."
Cons: "No option to watch movies"
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Pros: "The entire flight was excellent, on time, great friendly crew, edible food, movies and options were great, perfect in every way. It was a little chaotic at flight loading on extra security, but I assume it could have something to do with it being on 9/11 and it was ultimately bound for NYC."
Cons: "I honestly cannot think of anything."
Pros: "Missed it"
Cons: "Give me back money"
Cons: "No air conditioning in the plane and we had to sit on the runway for 25-30 minutes, very uncomfortable and we weren’t kept up on what was going on. Crew acted like they didn’t want to be there"
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Pros: "Good snack selection. Crew was personable."
Pros: "The crew work well together."
Cons: "The boarding process was very inconsistent."
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs for a three hour flight"
Pros: "Microphone in seat 31 E (isle seat) did not work. It has a short in it."
Pros: "It is good to be able to go straight to Paris without connecting."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow."
Pros: "From the gate agent to flight attendants the flight was great"
Cons: "The sky lounge to few bathrooms"
Pros: "The staff are friendly and passengers quickly get on and off the plane."
Cons: "I travel this route (ATL - MGM) often and it seems like half the time I use Delta there is an issue with the plane including times when the flight has been cancelled. This time the plane left the gate and some fifteen minutes after sitting on the tarmac was taken back to the gate. The issue was said to be an element that keeps a sensor from freezing in extreme cold weather. The less than one hour flight took two hours to complete. This should have been dealt with as a maintenance issue but Delta doesn't seem to think so. The planes on this route make Delta a LOT of money as it is one of the most profitable routes in the US. You would think Delta could invest in keeping better maintained planes on the route."
Pros: "Very attractive staff in flight"
Cons: "Having to unpack and repack when carry on bags are checked in waiting hall"
Pros: "Overall experience"
Pros: "First Delta experience in many years. Overall positive but not spectacular. A350 has suite doors, nice and private."
Cons: "Crew is not flexible with on-demand dining. Not sure if this was this specific crew member who couldn't be bothered or if Delta is behind other long haul airlines on this. Lay flat business class seat on A350 are very firm. a mattress pad would have made the flight much more comfortable."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "Nice plane staff"
Cons: "Very hot airport. Having to load plane outside (hotter on tarmac). Then Delta being 3.50 hours late. Sitting in a hot airport for 6 hours. Not my idea of fun"
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "1/12 hours late had to change out equipment"
Pros: "Nice enough crew"
Cons: "The MD88 is such a crappy plane for anyone that wasn't born a dwarf. I'm tired of filling out these and yet you do nothing about it. It is criminal to cram is in like sardines like this."
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Pros: "Nice flight and good staff and service"
Cons: "Food sold out and there was nothing left"
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed 45 minutes"
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: "The comfort and attention on the part of the cabin crew of the flight was quite good."
Cons: "What I did not like was the process to go to the assigned air terminal in El Salvador, the process was slow and we took the flight at the end of the last one. The same was the process from Los Angeles to Seattle that was our scale. Process too long and go back through security, the boarding gate was almost closed. I think that for these cases they should leave more time for the stopovers that come from international flights. For my part I did not choose this option, since I was traveling with a person with mobility problems and separated the group for admission to the process of entering the USA."
Pros: "The plane was really nice, food was good. I had a pleasant time."
Pros: "I loved the way that the flight attendants were able to sit my boyfriend and I together on our flights even though our seats weren't planned to be near each other. The available entertainment games, movies and tv shows were awesome to have!"
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"
Pros: "The nice Pilot that did show was a gem!"
Pros: "Good Entertainment"
Pros: "Staff was amazing! Very friendly and accommodating. We were traveling with a two-year-old and they moved us to first class to give extra room for the car seat."
Cons: "Lots of turbulents. The plane was smaller so they asked me to check in my carry-on as we were boarding. No issues getting my luggage back."
Pros: "Service in the flight !!"
Cons: "The new boarding pillars with Priority, Sky, Zone 1, Zone 2, etc was a mess. In concept it should be a good process, but it was just a sea of people asking each other which boarding group they were in. Going back to asking those who are in a particular boarding zone to form a line and doing so each zone at a time seems like a smoother process."
Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."
Cons: "Did not have the fruit and cheese plate."
Pros: "lte leaving Houston, cancelled flight back from Atlanta, reset to 3 hrs later, wound up leaving 12 hrs later."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, free entertainment, choice of free snack with our drink, free extra serving of complementary coffee, and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing in this experience"
Cons: "Plane was late. Took forever to inboard since they didn't prepare for a handicapped flyer. The plane sat on the runway and taxied for over an hour and the flight crew never gave any updates to the passengers."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"
Pros: "Delta always has good customer service"
Cons: "Amenities on smaller flights are generally less enjoyable; still did a good job, though."
Cons: "Customer service was terrible and the flight departed before the departure time; as a result I missed my returning flight although i got to the airport an hour early."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "No leg room, tight squeeze, charge for checked bags, no room for carryon luggage, bin compartments are too small"
Cons: "This is my first time that I travel to US form dec 18 and have to pay for luggage. I can understand if that’s a company policie, but maybe I can flight in another airline that’s doesn’t have any variable fees."
Cons: "They take my hand luggage in there are lost I don’t know what to do now"
Cons: "Flight attendant seemed tired."
Cons: "Flight got delayed missed my connecting flight rebooking options are garbage. Hotel was not accepting people from AA. Their shuttle company at MIA airport showed up 35 minutes late"
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: "I was forced to check my bag bc the plane was “full” but when I got on there were more than 5 completely empty overhead bins. So now I’m waiting in baggage claim, after an already delayed flight, when there was absolutely plenty of room on board for my bag (which was of acceptable size)."
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!"
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Pros: "food,movies, prices"
Cons: "Our flight was overbooked and we were moved to a later flight causing a 7 hour layover and arrived at 2am the following morning."
Pros: "I loved the attitude and helpful approach of the female flight attendant working the AA gate for the flight I took from DFW to COS last night (6/13). Truthfully, it was almost like I was back with Southwest. She was kind, calm, polite, efficient, and capable. Very rare in my experience with American Airlines yesterday. Interacting with her was refreshing."
Cons: "Getting home to Colorado Springs at 11:30 PM, taxiing for 15-20 minutes, and then waiting another 20-30 for checked luggage! Never have I waited that long during and after a Southwest flight! AA could truly learn something from their more modest counterpart. I have all but decided to resume my drives to Denver every other week rather than risk more and more time and poor experiences with AA flying in-and-out of Colorado Springs."
Cons: "Changing terminals atleast 4 times"
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: "Otherwise great flight experience..."
Cons: "But touchscreens were so unresponsive to touch it was almost impossible to navigate between movies."
Pros: "The attention and services"
Pros: "Roomy seat"
Cons: "Lousy food"
Cons: "There was no individual entertainment on board (TV’s, internet, etc)"
Pros: "No in seat entertainment"
Cons: "Need more food options to purchase"
Cons: "Think this plane still had screens overhead vs personal screens."
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: "Very smooth. Outstanding A-321 platform."
Cons: "No place to plug in my dying phone. All Group 7-9s had to check bags. This is unacceptable. Had to wait on connecting passengers (didn't know the airlines did that anymore). I am tired and have to go to work at my usual time since the flight landed late."
Cons: "No food for sale"
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: "Quick boarding and punctuality at departure"
Cons: "Plane was not confortable"
Pros: "Everything lined up perfectly"
Pros: "Everything, the plane was big and comforting, the fly attendants were very courteous and professional. Awesome fly."
Pros: "The crew did everything they could for the passengers to make them comfortable and informed about the situation but unfortunately it was out of their hands."
Cons: "It may be La Guardia Airport that is the one to blame and not AA, but long story short I was on the airplane on the ground in NY for about 5 hours. We had a domino effect of things happen that caused us to be delayed and then cancelled. First a Gate change to a different terminal after boarding was suppose to begin so we had to take a shuttle over and we're still missing 50 passengers, Engine problem that required maintenance, refuel because we were in the plane on the ground waiting for so long, deplane and replane for 10 mins because of a law, on the runway and back to the gate for all these different occasions. When they finally let us off the plane after all these hours it was because of weather (although the skies were blue and the pilot was confident it wouldn't be an issue) they didn't actually cancel the flight until 5pm, my flight was suppose to take off at 9am. They were also required by law to give us free snacks Bc we hadn't eaten all day or had fresh air--these were all chips and soda...in gluten free so I had to starve. AA customer relations said they couldn't compensate because the issue that was documented in their records for my flight cancellation was because of "weather"... my flight couldn't be rescheduled until the following afternoon, making me have to cancel work 2 days in a row and pay for multiple taxis and and extra night of boarding. I will NEVER fly AA or La Guardia again."
Pros: "Nothing except leaving American"
Cons: "Changed to a smaller plane from Chicago to Dublin Paid extra for seats on original and didn't get them Flight late because of catering difficulties"
Pros: "Very full flight arrived 20 mins early."
Pros: "All was good ..."
Cons: "The dinner alternatives were not available for everyone ... probably because we were sitting close to the last row of seats. That is not acceptable because everyone is paying the same regardless were you are seated."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. It was a very nice flight."
Pros: "Crew was professional. Boarding was effcient"
Cons: "As for confort, let's say that we know now how sardines feel in their tiny can."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Better food selection and free internet would be great."
Pros: "On time departite"
Cons: "We were forced to check in carry on luggage at the gate after group 1 boarded. Upon boarding, I noticed that the overhead bins were about 50% empty. On top of that, I had to wait over forty minutes for my luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Just getting through immigration in Miami fl."
Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
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: "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: "El vuelo partió casi 1 hora de retraso lo que significó que debí correr para alcanzar mi siguiente vuelo."
