Pros: "They hade entertainment"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "After waiting patiently through a 3 hour delay we were inbound to Minneapolis. We were set to arrive at 9:45 pm and there were multiple 10 pm connections. Delta flew into the furthest gate away, didn't communicate with the connecting flights to give it 5 more minutes and didn't have transportation waiting to bring us top our connections. After ruining across the entire length of the MSP concourse I arrived at 9:58 only to be told they already left. Worst communication I've ever seen. Delta should be ashamed."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."
Cons: "Seats are too small in both width and knee room"
Pros: "The plane was clean and well staffed. The crew was nice and helpful if I needed anything. The snacks and drinks are decent and what you would expect: small bags of pretzels or cookies and your choice of Coke product or coffee. Using the mobile Delta app made boarding and finding my gate a breeze."
Cons: "The seats were hard, and it was hard to fall asleep."
Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed take-off, one plane for hour or so."
Pros: "The air staff were very nice and attentive. Menu choices were varied and reasonably priced."
Cons: "The microphones didn't work well and hearing the staff was difficult. I saw several load before their zone was called with nothing said to them. When I paid to upgrade zones that is very annoying. Please quit shrinking the passenger seat size."
Pros: "The crew were professional and courteous"
Cons: "The fight was delayed multiple times, starting at a 5:44 takeoff and finally taking off around 9:15. It was delayed in 30 min increments, which made it hard to do anything else around the airport since I was constantly in a state of "about to board." A frustrating experience. No posts of extra snacks while waiting, or compensation or explanation of what caused the delay."
Pros: "ability to book a later flight when I missed my connection through the delta app."
Cons: "Delays, missed a connection, booked a new connection through the app and that one was delayed as well...what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour experience turned into a much longer one. Seats do not accommodate people over 6'2" abiet very poorly."

Pros: "Flight attendant was excellent and pilots did a great job with weather"
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with movies and games"
Cons: "No fault of Delta's but we were delayed on the runway for over an hour and we're an hour late. I had to move seats twice the first time because the video screen was freezing up and the second time because it stopped working the third seat was good though. The airplane food was typically horrid."
Pros: "Entertainment Screen in the seat back in front of me"
Cons: "Deplaning. On one of my other flights this week they released us 3 rows at a time to limit social distancing. Thought that was going to be the norm but I guess not."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was wonderful, she worked so hard the whole flight and was so pleasant. I am sorry I don’t know her name, but she’s beautiful!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Great flight"
Cons: "Attitude of flight attendant"
Cons: "The connection in Miami didn’t happen - the flights crew on the ORLANDO yo to Miami flight were rude and unhelpful - the plane sat in the tarmac waiting for a gate so flight arrived 15 minutes before planned departure - we inquired as to whether the plane would be held - response- despite having internet access was “ I don’t know “ you’ll have to check with gate agent - oh and by the way the flight attendant was virtually laying on the front seats - she as grossly obese and was so large as he walked the aisles she would hit passengers every time she turned around - we ran to the gate arriving 8 minutes before departure - gate was shut two gate agents were reading social media posts on their phones - we inquired about the flight - the gate agent said “ you missed the flight “ and then sat down and continued on her phone - the other one at least looked up and told us where to them go for assistance - eventually we were assisted and offferd 1 to wait u til the next day to go or to go through London - we took the London option. 1. I was informed by anAA employee they the connection is frequently missed due to similar problems. 2. Flight attendants and gate agents will bankrupt the airline with their horrible attitude. - they should be fired."

One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."

Cons: "I flew economy so I have no complaints. The movies weren't my cup of tea, but I was exhausted and slept anyway, so it didn't matter."
Cons: "Our flight was 3 + hours behind schedule. We didn't get to take off until around 11:30pm when our flight was supposed to take off at 7:05pm. I have missed my itinerary and cruise trip with family members. Now I have to wait 2 days to catch a cruise and reunite with my family in Italy. It's not fear that the airline don't take consideration for this kind of situation.

Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Cons: "I have one small computer bag and need to put my own feet under the seat in front. I should be able to not have my small bag where my feet NEED to be. My carryon is far less than what most have and this is for my own comfort."

Pros: "Most of it"
Cons: "Purchase of snack! I only received a cracker and a soda!! Also, the movies were not free!! Really!!!!"
Cons: "3 delays, but United refused to cancel the flight which would allow the passengers to rebook. Pilots were dismissed and we were given vouchers to the worst motel that I have EVER stayed in. Since I had to be in Washington the next morning, I purchased a $600 ticket online after the gate agent told all of the passengers that United could not get them to D.C. until the next evening.

Cons: "The United employees at check in kiosk were very unorganized and unhelpful. I was traveling internationally with a small child and had two pieces of luggage to check in. Normally you just go to the counter once and they do everything including taking your luggage once they weigh it. Instead, I had to go to the self check in kiosk, then back to the counter to weigh my luggage, take off the one luggage from the scale, weigh the second one, then go back to the self check in kiosk, then was told to take off the second luggage as well, then finally went to a second counter where the lady handwritten my luggage tags and then was told to take both pieces of luggage and put them somewhere else altogether with specific directions on where to put them. This is something normally handled by the actual employees. Also, the check in dude yelled at my kid for putting in his name into the check in kiosk while we were waiting on the check in dude to do all those unorganized activities. He claimed it would break the software if my kid were to enter his name. I have told him that no, the software will not break if my child enters in his name."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "Flight attendant never smiled once. She got short with the lady in front of me. Just looked like she doesn't like her job. You could tell she didn't want to be there. I never did hear the Captain speak. The crew just seemed unfriendly to me. Service at the airport was great!"

Pros: "I was late to get to airport-- the airport is small-- I hauled and managed to get checked in and got to gate 15 minutes before take off. There was no one at the gate door. I went to another gate and she tried to call the attendant at the door. She didn't respond because her phone was at the desk. I was frustrated I didn't get on while I could see she was talking with people at the gate and in the airplane-- but I should have been there earlier. That said-- she came out and was incredibly helpful-- she managed to get me on a flight only an hour after that one and I didn't miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "I have nobody sitting next to me"
Cons: "The 20 min delay"
Pros: "Staff was professional. Flight was on time"

Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Cons: "Everything. I had a very tight schedule to visit my friends in canada. What was supposed to be a quick flight turned into almost 24 hours of travel and ariving 12 hours late. I was lucky to have 3 days in with my friends now i only have 2. Not to mention what was supposed to be an inexpensive trip turned i to an expensive one when you are forced to eat airport food after being constantly re routed. I bought my ticket based on ariving to ottawa in the morning this however was not the case. I will be seeking a refund."
