Cons: Descent and landing seemed as if different pilot in service than from ascend and cruising.Read more about Delta
Cons: Descent and landing seemed as if different pilot in service than from ascend and cruising.
Cons: Felt unsafe. Guy with guns and how delta employees handled it blew my mind!
Pros: Crew was super helpful and very accomodating
Cons: Can’t think of anything. A few times I’ve flown Delta, the service has improved. Having helpful staff on board is very important . Years ago it was very unpleasant to fly Delta because of rude flight attendants especially on us domestic flights. Hopefully that has all changed. Especially the older crew. If they can’t stand doing better customer service they need to retire . Happy to fly Delta and will let people know.
Cons: Temperature of cabin was too cold. My feet were icy.
Cons: Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac
Cons: The food on the plain or snacks were to poor and not that tasty.
Pros: nice crew and newer plane
Cons: 13 hour delay
Pros: Friendly flight staff, on time service.
Pros: The pilot greeted us all on the jet way and then spoke to us. He even came to ask if everyone was ok before we left.
Pros: Diverted for unclear reasons. Stuck in TSY with hotel voucher to an overbooked hotel; trying to find out of pocket accommodations after long day of no food at MIDNIGHT was a real downer! I’ll let ya know if I make it home TODAY!!!
Pros: Quick flight
Cons: I wish there was a way to access the delta movies in small planes that don’t have seat back entertainment
Cons: No food on board and we were hungry
Pros: Delta in flight entertainment is great.
Cons: Always delayed.
Cons: Arrived 30 minutes late. The food is ridiculous.
Cons: There was no food or entertainment. There was a problem with the seat of the person in front of me. He couldn't keep his seat straight and his head was in my lap throughout the flight.
Pros: Boarding was quick and prices were fair
Cons: I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!
Cons: My sit changed last minute, noisy babies
Pros: Crew was amazing! Entertainment options were great
Cons: Need more than 1 option for breakfast
Cons: Having to go through Kayak wasn’t helpful. I wasn’t kept informed of the flight and getting to my flight schedule was difficult. Going through the website was also frustrating and confirming flights was difficult.
Pros: I will say that this has been the best flight my husband and I have ever had. The crew members were very nice and helpful. This has been the smoothest flight we have ever had as well.
Pros: We flew Delta from Rome to Atlanta. Everyone was very accommodating and we had no problem with our tickets
Pros: This was the most professional crew we have seen in a long time. What a difference a good crew makes.
Pros: The flight was very smooth and the landing also was very good. The selection of movie are plenty.
Pros: Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival. Was also quite pleased with the food options available during such a long flight.
Pros: Comfy on time and personable. Food was good too. Thank you.
Cons: It was all good.
Pros: Everything was smooth, organized, professional! Loved the entertainment options, the direct flight, smooth and comfortable!
Pros: The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth
Pros: I liked the individual tv screens to watch the latest movies
Cons: The slow boarding
Pros: All the staff are sincere in serving. It must be a direct result of the great management at the top. If the employees were unhappy and rude that also would be a direct reflection of the management. I use the same flight often and let the staff know I appreciate them.
Cons: Snacks are small, but delicious cookies.
Cons: On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF
Cons: The gate crew did not change seats for my family & I to sit together (spouse, baby & I, grand parents) The flight was late leaving as the troops returning home were late. That part was ok, but they could have changed their seats so my family and i could sit together. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t have minded given they were all on their 4th flight if the day. It seemed that the gate crew was not budging. If my parents hadn’t had 2 seats together my daughter would have had to sit with a stranger. That’s not acceptable.
Pros: The plane, crew was clean, newer and had TV's in the backrests. Remember to bring headphones! Seats are tight, but the crew was friendly and may the flight experience positive.
Pros: Able to download boarding pass into apple wallet
Cons: Flight was almost an hour late departing, bag is a carry on but storage too small to keep bag, then wifi didn't work the entire flight. Had to run to our connection since our layover time was taken up in Boise. If we had missed the flight, we would have been re-routed to another airport over 1 1/2 hrs away since ours closes. Next flight was not much better, oh and wifi did I t work on it also - last 3-4 delta flights I've taken have been late and didn't have working wifi - starting to think their system doesn't work at all - seriously going to take any other carrier but Delta going forward
Pros: I'm very satisfied.
Cons: No comemt
Pros: Media access was great, flight was on time and flight crew was pleasant and helpful!
Cons: Space between seats/rows was really tight and I'm short. Would imagine for someone taller it would be really uncomfortable.
Cons: Late and missed my international connection
Cons: My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight.
Pros: fast efficient and directions are pretty clear tons of delicious food available at PDX to bring plane was comfortable and roomy
Cons: long lines through security
Pros: Flight was on time and even landed early. Boarding was seamless with bag tag. Seats were comfy. Crew was professional.
Cons: A drink with no napkins? I know airlines need to cut costs but what if I spilled my drink or want to wipe my hands after eating pretzels Delta? You can still provide napkins.
Pros: When I went into customer service and explained that I lost my flight because of bean at the immigration for almost 2hrs and the woman she say u going on the next flight, one hr later I was heading to my destination Richmond.
Pros: Flight Attendants!
Cons: When flight arrived late, the plane then required maintenance. After boarding, we were told the fuel vehicle was out of fuel. A small fuel truck was then called in, and it failed to operate. The Captain made a decision to deboard due to outside temperature with little air-conditioning...amd mid-deplaning...fueling was complete amd passengers were told to go back to seats. Flight Attendants were amazing throughout this incompetent ground crew ordeal.!!! Captain was Great as well...his effort kept all informed and sought the best possible outcome for his passengers!!!
Pros: Great plane very comfortable
Cons: Everything great. On yome
Cons: Arrived at my destination almost two hours after the initial arrival time
Pros: Quick and Easy
Cons: It would be nice to over drinks at least. I know its a short flight but coffee would have been nice.
Pros: Very early
Pros: really close to a SkyClub - it seems like the connections to Panama City usually get stuck at the end of the concourse, so this was a pleasant change
Cons: Alaska seems to do a much better job in getting the people to stay out of the boarding area until their zone is boarding. At least they make it a point of emphasis.
Pros: Flying to Portland was trouble free.
Cons: No complaints here
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.
Pros: Me rompieron el equipaje
Pros: Crew and service was solid given the covid restrictions.
Cons: Smooth and enjoyable trip unlike the second leg to Aspen
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
Cons: Really rude check in with bags and flight attendants are rude too. Haven’t flown American Airlines in years and will try to avoid them again
Cons: Flight was delayed for over 3 hours and I still don’t know why.
Cons: Sat on tarmac for over 40 min waiting for gate
Pros: Crew was very hospitable
Cons: Flight was a little late taking off, so punctuality could have been a little better
Pros: The speed at which everything was handled.
Cons: It was great
Pros: Crew was fabulous.
Cons: Rerouted which made us late
Pros: Getting to my destination
Cons: Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!
Pros: The crew was awesome
Cons: The flight was delayed 3 times before we even boarded. Then we sat in the plane for an hour.
Pros: Amazing crew
Cons: Seats are hard and uncomfortable
Pros: Not much, but I guess I finally got to my desitination
Cons: They cancelled 2 of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again, even if it's the cheapest option.
Cons: It would have been nice to have the individual TVs on every screen given how long the flight was. At this point it seems like most international flights have them so I would have appreciated it here
Pros: Boarding was very quick and easy. There was plenty of room for everyone's cary on luggage. The movie selection was vast and encompassing.
Cons: The seat was really uncomfortable even if reclined all the way. If the person in front of you is reclined, then you basically have to recline yourself to see the screen. Very little leg room.
Pros: The greatest part of the trip for me was the smooth landing.
Cons: I wanted a voucher ride but they only needed a few volunteers.
Pros: Super-friendly, easy-to-understand crew
Cons: Too short of a flight for WiFi or snacks
Pros: Everyone was so nice and I appreciated the chance to pre-board with my toddler! Thank you.
Cons: Delayed due to malfunctioning plane
Pros: Crew was good.
Cons: Plane needs updated or put out of service. Uncomfortable for international flights. Monitors were few and broken in the main cabin.
Cons: We left two hours late
Cons: I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well.
Pros: They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip.
Cons: They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion.
Pros: Crew is very nice, we were on time and baggage didn't get lost for once.
Cons: Seats are simply too tight, not enough space for carry-on, and boarding procedures are a joke.
Pros: Flight attendants friendly.
Cons: So many rows of seats crammed in and no where for people to put their bags. People from front of Llane had to go to rear to place and retrieve their luggage. Maybe space the rows a little better or retire these older planes.
Pros: I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to text via free WiFi in the sky. Oddly, this same service is unable to be acquired, once you’re in the United States. Leave it to Mexico, a beautiful country that’s struggling with so much poverty, to offer up free internet service instead of some silly $20 per flight deal which occurs once you cross into (at least on the surface) the wealthy, not so poverty stricken, USA! AMERICA! America, the same America that the side of the plane you’re flying in, is so proudly representing. Rich, powerful, fair America needs the extra $20!
Cons: I loved all of it. I have nothing to complain about. Thanks for a great experience!! Except, if there’s any way that I can extend a complaint about the Cozumel airport... I was SO disappointed that they no longer carry those delicious Doritos, that can only be found in Mexico. Their stores stopped carrying them and I nearly died of sadness! Just kidding guys. I had a great experience and I love Cozumel airport. It’s one of my favorites, honestly.
Pros: Timely. Plane on time. Crew very friendly and helpful
Pros: The flight was 30 minutes faster than initially scheduled. It was great.
Cons: The flight left 10 minutes late, but on my positive comments, this was remedied in the end.
Pros: Direct flight, sketchy weather but we arrived pretty close to “on time”
Cons: seats should be sold based on the weight of passengers.
Cons: American Airlines has to be the worst airline I’ve ever traveled with. They canceled both of my flights and scheduled me for flights the next day each time. Customer service pretty poor. I opted to take a train instead. They didn’t reimburse me either. Awful
Pros: Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight.
Cons: They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude
Pros: Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly.
Cons: I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient.
Pros: AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance.
Cons: Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays.
Pros: The flight attendants were amazing. I enjoyed the in flight entertainment and overall flight. The flight was only a couple of hours so there were no meals. I enjoyed a hot cup of tea during my flight. I was able to take a quick nap during the initial flight and catch a movie on the way back.
Cons: The terminal at LGA is undergoing renovations, I had to take a shuttle bus to my gate. The shuffle down stairs, bus ride, and lines for boarding were annoying.
Pros: The entertainment was excellent! Flight was top notch! A+++ , very friendly people and nice to talk to!
Cons: A hippie beside me opened up his homemade fish and garlic hummus! But excellent on American Airlines end!
Cons: Ground crew was inadequate and unorganized. Ground crew caused a late flight to be even later. Plane was overbooked and the ground crew was more interested in filling the flight than accommodating Advantage Member seating.
Pros: Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap.
Cons: there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!
Pros: For the price I got my ticket for. This was a good deal. I paid extra to upgrade to main cabin extra but well worth it.
Cons: Got food and drinks and beer at nomadditional cost
Cons: The captain announced that the flight crew exceeded 9 work hour per day due to the takeoff delay so the passengers were forced to sit and wait in a stuffy stationary aircraft for 2 hours prior to takeoff until a different crew could arrive to service the flight.
Pros: The options you have to pick from
Cons: The pop ups
Pros: A short flight, so quite comfortable
Pros: The price was fair and the flights were on time.
Cons: Bags cost extra, food cost extra, seats cost extra. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me the entire flight (two exit row seats were empty) and there was no way to move that provided comfort. The overhead bins were full before half of the passengers boarded. The crew was polite, but not kind.
Pros: Cindy seats. Lots of leg room. No problem finding space in the overhead bin. Friendly flight attendants.
Cons: Whole experience and staff walk with a sense of entitlement in a rude type a way and makes me feel some type a way, bad
Pros: It was five star all the way.
Cons: Flight was nearly an hour late because co-pilot was late. Totally unprofessional.
