This flight was excellent. Left and arrives ahead of schedule. The plane was only half full and they actually let people lay down in rows of empty seats. The crew was super kind to a large family with a bunch of kids who wanted to be closer together. I think Delta purposely avoids turbulence more than other airlines because I never experience jarring flights, even the red eyes. They served two meals onboard (which were honestly pretty gross but they are doing their best). Also the newer planes have really cool lighting that helps with jet lag because they mimic the sunset and sunrise colors, and have polarized windows that extend “night time” until they are ready to land in the morning. Pretty cool.
Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Friendly staff Soft landing"
Pros: "Muy buen servicio y puntualidad"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were comfortable enough. Delta inflight app worked well for entertainment. I will even brag on the fact we took Offa full hour late but somehow landed 5 minutes after scheduled."
Cons: "Departure time"
Cons: "Delayed, seat didn’t recline"
Cons: "You shouldn't schedule a flight for a plane that is due to have scheduled maintenance. It's not like this should come as a surprise to you. Also, there was at least one over-served passenger on board who became loud and obnoxious, shouting obscenities."
Cons: "My suitcase was broke at some point and also items in my suitcase."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Everyone was helpful."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I've got the exit seat: very comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment choice could improve, very few choices."
Pros: "Connecting flight attendant was extremely helpful"
Cons: "Delayed due to weather this missed the first connection then bumped from first class by a rude gate agent in Atlanta"
Pros: "The crew was okay. Seat was uncomfortable. Fold down table was broken."
Cons: "Delayed several times. switched to a later flight hoping that flight would not be delayed. That flight was delayed. I had to sit on the plane for over an hour before we took off. Didn’t make it to Chattanooga until almost12 am. hoping to fly delta for next trip to Dominican Rep. but now I’m unsure"
Pros: "Don’t wait to much"
Pros: "The crew really took care of us. You could tell they care."
Cons: "I wish the headphone jacks allowed standard headphones. I brought a nice set and didn't have an adapter. I used the ones they included which were ok, but not great."
Pros: "boarding was on time"
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and deboarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed (naturally) so the crew was rushed and inattentive. No pre-flight beverages in first class, and then no follow up service once aloft unless you asked. Makes me wonder why I’m paying extra for mediocre service."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The charging ports didn’t work, seats were avianle unable to move to a different one."
Cons: "Gate agent was rude to anxious passengers, due to flight delayed because of equipment problems."
Pros: "The flight attendants gave great service"
Pros: "Crew was courteous, I asked for a blanket and a banana (I saw some being passed to delta select (?) passengers), and got both, no one snapped at me like on an earlier flight.5"
Cons: "The flight was 3.5 hrs late. (Had it been on time, I would have missed it entirely though because Atlanta airport passport control was complete chaos, I heard the airport wa closed earlier for weather related reasons). Enough said."
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "The attendant was most helpful. Because the flight was not full, she allowed us to sit in the exit row, window and aisle, with no one between. I'm a tall person, so the extra leg room was deeply appreciated. I give her and the airline high marks."
Pros: "It was a short easy flight that actually landed early."
Pros: "Was short and easy to get in and out of both airports"
Cons: "What ever happened to a free drink on international flights ?"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Pros: "The flight was on schedule"
Cons: "It was crowded and cramped."
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "You go up. You go down. It's over before you know it."
Cons: "No food was offered."
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't very prompt, but went smoothly once it began."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time"
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade."
Cons: "Didn't eat or use entertainment."
Cons: "Flight got delayed and I had to reschedule. The process of rescheduling was a mess and took too long"
Pros: "Great flight from tampa, everything was perfect"
Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"
Pros: "The customer service of the gate attendants and flight crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The flight was significantly delayed (8 hours), but Delta did provide vouchers and cash reimbursements for missed activities. They definitely win for proactive customer service!"
Pros: "Frontline staff were nice."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled last minute. Instead of a direct flight to start vacation, we ended up with a five hour layover in Atlanta. And to top it all off, they tried to double charge us for a checked bag fee."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Moron putting the seat back in front of me"
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "The Captain was courteous and the flight itself was good."
Cons: "There was a barking dog on the flight that was very high pitched. The stewardess was not polite, kept repeating herself and her voice was like the teacher you never wanted to have. The WiFi did not work. We had to wait for a gate approximately 30 minutes when we reached DFW."
Cons: "typical poor computer jet poor experience. Now no service"
Cons: "Hard landing on arrival in Philadelphia."
Pros: "The crew was great! Very accommodating"
Cons: "Better control and seating of families with little kids."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The plane could have arrived on time, made sure everything worked fine, and got me to my destination like they said they were going to... instead, stand by for a different flight was not what I paid for... but it is what I got."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly"
Cons: "AC power. Seat back TVs."
Pros: "Great attend ants"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and nice as always!"
Cons: "More room in the seat but I know that’s unrealistic."
Cons: "I didn't the pilot pushing the American Airlines credit card and having the crew walking down the aisle trying to pass out applications."
Cons: "Turning on all cabin lights at 1am to do a beverage service was absolutely insane."
Pros: "I loved the seating"
Cons: "Honestly on a 5 hour flight ✈️ power outlets would be helpful also maybe a tv so I can see where I am at"
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Pros: "on time departure offered a beverage and snack"
Cons: "we had to circle phila we had to wait for our gate"
Cons: "1 hour 30 min late taking off."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Reduce time spent on tarmac."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, and helpful."
Cons: "I remember you used to get to choose from some seats even if you didn't pay extra. Since the smaller airlines started charging to choose, now the big ones are doing it as well. I checked in for two tickets at the same time, but my wife and i were still separated. Frustrating"
Pros: "Everything was great and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Working plane mechanical issues"
Pros: "Right on time"
Cons: "Wife on board"
Pros: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Our 5:30am flight was delayed for over 4 hours causing us to miss our connection. So by the time we got to our destination we had wasted the entire day. This was a loss of an entire day of our vacation. This was our first time traveling with American. We will never book with them again."
Cons: "waiting on runwat for 30 minutes"
Pros: "Getting off."
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. Further, there were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies."
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed. But it was not their fault because it was the thunderstorms that held us up."
Pros: "We didn’t crash. Movies on board"
Cons: "One hateful flight attendant that would not let me move a seat even though it wasn’t premium seat or anything and the entire row was open. Seats are SUPER cramped. Like an Asian budget carrier."
Pros: "Awesome roomy seat right behind business class. Could not have asked for better! And it was a gorgeous new aircraft."
Cons: "Missed because of first delay"
Cons: "Didn't make it to Tulsa. Won't make it for almost 8 more hours. Shameful."
Cons: "Surprise no carry on bag. I missed my flight because of their policy changed policy"
Pros: "We paid almost $100 each extra for our seats. For that price we should at least have had a little wiggle room. My husband is 6'4" tall and it was a pretty uncomfortable flight for him. It was American booked thru Iberia."
Cons: "The seats were quite cramped. It was a long flight to be so cramped. The flight attendants were very nice and hospitable. It was also nice to get a pillow & blanket. When we flew to China on American I was appalled that they were charging for use of them."
Pros: "Staff extremely friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"
Pros: "Great food and movie selection - awesome distraction from my usual flight anxiety."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. Booked on another 2.5 hrs later. Seating not until the last moment. No human touches... all mechanical / perfunctory."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Pilot kept us updated on our delayed departure."
Cons: "The departure was delayed due to maintainence issues. Every time that occurs, there are long delays to complete the paperwork. No problem with wanting a well maintained plane, but there should be some quicker way to complete the documentation."
Pros: "The flight was fast and good service"
Cons: "En El Salvador the person who check my luggage was rude And throw my medicines to the garbage and she told That I need a proscription from my Dr , never it happen before , I think she work for El Salvador airport but she was rude"
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: "Flight oversold. Couldn't use online system to book flight, so went 3 hours early to check in. Told couldn't check in still, had to do it at the gate. Then flight delayed two hours. No communication."
Cons: "Held hostage on plane through storm. Teased for 6 hours then cancelled at midnight."
Cons: "Lost luggage. Not enough time so missed flight"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed overnight in Las Vegas, which was hassle but unavoidable due to weather and pilot flight hours restrictions. But the ground crew and American Airlines worked very hard to compensate all the passengers: gave us each a voucher for hotel, 2 meals, round trip shuttle ride for hotel and airport. Good work to make up for a bad situation."
Pros: "A value for the money."
Cons: "Again, narrow seats and hard."
Pros: "Im still waiting to get on a plane..."
Cons: "Since TSA took so long I missed my flight by 5 minutes. Then I was put on standby. Ive been at the denver airport for 10 hours and the plane i was going to get on has mechanical problems so the flight is pushed back until 7am tomorrow. Ill have been at the denver airport for 26 hours and then i have to wait on standby again in Dallas. Who knows when I'll actually get home. American airlines is not even offeri6mg any vouchers or anything. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "No TV or WiFi"
Cons: "Small plane now for the same price and no food like before in the same route"
Cons: "The flight left late but the delay was made up for in the air."
Pros: "Very good crew. The gate personnel also made the best of a bad situation."
Cons: "The 90 min delay and multiple postponements were a huge problem. The fact that there was such a long delay that there was another flight to the same place leaving approx 5 min later and then an hour later is pretty sad. And loading from the gate consisting of walking through cattle gates across the Tarmac was slightly irritating. In the future if you can't find enough working aircraft, make better arrangements."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Ancient aircraft...an embarrassment actually. No TV entertainment in the seats for a ten hour flight, antiquated systems, horrible selection of movies that are years old, mediocre food, the worst American coffee (how can they present that as coffee flying from the coffee country of Italy?!)."
Not being delayed 3 hrs because of United’s inability to book crew.
Pros: "That American Airlines stepped up and got us home"
Cons: "Once again flight was delayed to the point where we could not make our connection. Had to get American to get us home never again United"
Pros: "arrived early"
Cons: "entertainment was offline until 1 hour before landing"
Cons: "10 hour flight without dinner? Since when it was ok?"
Pros: "Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew was very grumpy and not accommodating to families (ours and others). No wifi or outlets."
Cons: "Try to keep the flights close to schedule and be honest about the delay."
Pros: "Served food"
Cons: "At first the flight attendant seem rude. Bad 1st impression."
Cons: "Gate checked baggage took forever to be brought to the jetway. I’ve been on several UA flights. It seems to be a major problem with UA and their contractors. They don’t load bags quickly."
Pros: "Flight left on time. There was plenty of room. Nice staff."
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane because the valve for the heat was frozen."
Pros: "Everything was as pkanned"
Pros: "Good flight for the price. Keep your expectations low."
Cons: "Only one snack service for 5 hour flight. A second bag of pretzels would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding okay speed."
Cons: "The plane was in poor repair. Seats were frayed, overhead panels were bent or broken on the ceiling, floor dirty, air not working... Old planes can still be old AND well kept. I was told I could have a carry-on, but at the gate, I was told that all bags would need to be checked. My "carry-on," which met criteria, came back bent AF with items missing."
Cons: "It was delayed due to my earlier trip but united tried to get me a connection which was atleaogood. The overall trip was 24 hours and due to all these delays my trip took 31 hours."
Pros: "The crew service in the airplane, it was clean and the were very nice."
Cons: "The service in the gate, I tried to explained her that when the plane land in Washington My connection will be already boarding and she didn't do anything to help. I asked her to check my bags complimentary so I could be able to run and she said no."
Cons: "No refund, no compensation, no apology....just too bad."
Pros: "Fast & efficient"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Quick, easy flight with a really nice flight attendant."
Cons: "Really small and uncomfortable plane. I feel like they should phase these small planes out. Seats are not wide enough for a regular sized guy."
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane because there was some problem with the baggage that was holding up all the planes. Not the airline’s fault, rather the airport."
Pros: "Economy seats had ok legroom."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled so we automatically got out on the next flight. Our stop over went from 2h to over 7h. Staff at checkin were very unhelpful. They told us to go to the website to request a refund and wouldn't offer us any flight upgrades. We got on the flight and people were told not to sit in the unoccupied enconomy plus seats unless they paid for them. Pretty poor that considering there were at least 2 rows of seats available they are so tight they can't even be bothered to compensate us in a way that won't effect their bottom line. We completed the return request only to be told that refunds are not offered on schedule changes. Again pretty shoddy customer service and shows that all they are about is your money. The breakfast we had was disgusting. The melted cheese looked like someone had vomited onto my tray. On waiting for our connecting flight there was an old lady who was dumped at a gate on a wheel chair. They person then left without telling them what was happening. We could see she was anxious about not knowing what was happening. My wife went to the United help desk to ask for information for the lady's flight and was told she should just check the information board and dismissed. Not sure how an old lady who can't walk is meant to do this (this was explained to them). If United had bothered to make some kind of effort to be at least helpful in any stage with refunding / upgrading us and being helpful to an old lady maybe this review would be different. Ultimately all they care about is your money and will deliver a shockingly bad customer service wherever they can get away with it. I WONT be flying United again. I will pay more for another airline."
Pros: "The flight attendant used my name. Great landing."
Cons: "Tar mat loading. In flight service."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were the best!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we didn't find out until we all boarded and then we all had to get off and re board about 15 minutes later. Some missed connecting flights. Seems like they need to work on communication."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and hospitable."
Cons: "Need rest room in middle area of plane. Movies need to change weekly. Same movies a week later."
Pros: "I enjoy flying, despite the security checks, secondary security checks, the general lax nature of TSA agents who care not when your flight is leaving or how inconvenient it is to have to unpack your entire bag to show them a bar of soap is not, in fact, a plastic explosive. I do like to fly, but it seems to be increasingly difficult to adhere to the rules properly."
Cons: "I was in line to board with group 4 and the woman in front of me had a large duffle bag, a purse, and 3 small grocery bags. The gate agent let her through, but told her to consolidate her bags. I had one carry on and one purse and was forced to gate check my bag, only to find out I would have to go to baggage claim to pick it up. If the woman in front of me was forced to adhere to the rules, I would likely have fit my bag into an overhead. UNFAIR."
Cons: "United sent out a series of delayed flight communications times that all contradicted each other. Flight updates did not give me adequate time to arrange my plans to accommodate their sporadic updates for fliget 4132, resulting in me missing my flight after paying a $95 dollar cab fare. May 1, 2017 United failed in my eyes of a loyal customer."
Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Delayed leaving PSP. Delayed landing at SFO. THREE AND A HALF HOUR delay leaving SFO!!! FINALLY landed in RDD at 7:30 PM!!! Rental car counter CLOSED AT 5:30! STRANDED AT AIRPORT TIL AFTER 9 PM, when hotel shuttle could come get me! Missed seeing my mother, who is in a Skilled Nursing Facility here -- THE ENTIRE REASON FOR MY TRIP! And now I can't see her this morning either, because I have to take the hotel shuttle BACK TO THE AIRPORT to pick up the rental car that I PAID IN ADVANCE TO RESERVE BEGINNING YESTERDAY!!!"
Pros: "I liked that the attendant suggested that anyone who wished, could move to unsold seats! Nice!"
Pros: "From the Take off location in Low Angeles the United personnel was terrific...my parents both have health issues and the wheelchair..go cart service was great..."
Cons: "When returning from Houston to LA...i appreciated that the wheelchair service was ready when they arrived....what i didn't like was that as we entered the elevator one of the workers made a comment to his partner that there was to much weight cause the elevator made a certain noise...but not as if he was concerned more jokingly...my mother is heavy set ...she and our party thought that was rude and unnecessary...they both looked at her...i was going to bring it to there attention, but what good would of it done...so please address it....there were 2 gentlemen...one pushing my father which was a Hispanic male and the other was a black male pushing mother...the one who made the comment was the Hispanic male....and another problem was the airplane was very warm..."
Cons: "I'm 6"1 and there's no leg room for at all!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and responsive"
Cons: "Nickel and dimed for every aspect of the flight. Very uncomfortable seating. Definitely not comfortable for anyone over 4'5" and over 100lbs."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hrs without reason."
Pros: "Rude boarding employee- Rude in general on phone with United Got to my confirmation code after having to change my flight and we got disconnected- didn't call me back when he had my number. Lost the connection"
Pros: "Jet was small, so a little less comfortable. Friendly staff. I got a refill on my beverage before they collected trash."
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
Pros: "Crew attempted to make a "backup" booking due to the delay in my connection to Newark. I had a 12:45 flight that was delayed. We departed at 1:45. I was booked on the 4:51 connection to Detroit and 8:58 as a backup."
Cons: "Due to the change in my reservation, my luggage was not loaded on my flight. I am still waiting for my belongings."
Cons: "United cancelled our first flight, and would not re-book us on another flight until 24 hours later, so we ended up having to drive from Washington DC to Savannah for an event. Instead of cancelling just the first leg of our flight, they cancelled the return trip as well, and then tried to charge us the difference because we were "booking at the last minute". United really is the worst airline, and we will never fly with them again."
Pros: "A smooth easy trip from Chattanooga to Newark."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and no touriblence"
Pros: "My flight has a delay and i miss my connection to my second flight. I need to book an hotel room and that was not in my budget."
Cons: "I was so cramped into the seat. I have never experienced such restrictive seating before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed both ways"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and had to pay to stay in a hotel room for the night."
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating and polite. They made the trip very pleasant."
Cons: "There were flies on the plane on our return trip."
Cons: "There was a delay after boarding / door closing. We just sat at the gate without explanation so we arrived late in Boston. I assume we were held for some reason by the tower but an update from the pilot would have been nice."
Cons: "The flight was extremely late and completely upset my travel schedule. It cost me extra money to get to my final destination on-time. The worst travel experience I have had. The airlines did not communicate AT ALL regarding the delays that they knew about."
Pros: "STEWARDESS GAVE ME FULL CAN OF JUICE"
Cons: "2 HOUR DELAY CONDESCENDING REP AT TICKET COUNTER"
Cons: "First the flight was delayed more than 1.5 hrs and then I get a text that my suitcase was coming in the next flight which there was none, to then find out that my suitcase was there after my ride was returning to then come back to pick me up. Very unorganized."
