Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."
Pros: "Super crew. Reasonably good food. Liked how safety conscious crew was."
Cons: "Nothing. Great job everyone"

Pros: "The crew members were so kind and friendly. I actually did feel more at ease and made my journey more enjoyable.

The offerings of movies and TV were excellent and extensive."
Cons: "The meal really wasnt very good. But the snacks and beverages we're quite good. Not sure if it is related but the check in/luggage drop process was quite slow."

Pros: "The plane was really nice. It was awesome being able to view movies on the flight."

Pros: "The workers."
Cons: "The selection on an incorrect plane that didn't fit the docking port"
Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Going to Denver was delayed and now return trip delayed We were give 3 separate reasons. Poor communication. Just telling me a flight will be delayed is not communication. Lack of a free snack was disappointing. May have to rethink flying Delta next time."
Pros: "Please see above. Sherry was amazing"
Cons: "Plane was small and older but it was a short flight"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and great! Delta is really big on on time flights and I like that!"
Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Pros: "The flights were smooth, it was an easy process"
Pros: "On time with no drama"
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"

Cons: "Flight was changed. Missed an important event"
Cons: "No power outlets, back of the plane is really loud, overhead bins suck"

Pros: "Friendly staff and onetime aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in perticular"
Cons: "No power to charge"
Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."
Pros: "Columbus airport is very nice. Security was quick. Boarding the plane was smooth and no problems. Staff was very nice too!"

Pros: "The crew was great on both Korean air and Delta. Very helpful and polite, with several going the extra mile"
Cons: "I'm tall, so I'd like bigger seats, but I guess that can't be helped much without a price increase"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful assisting my last minute boarding needs. Staff was friendly and polite."
Cons: "Because KAYAK reassigned my flight to airfare.com, I actually flew into JFK. Not my preference and the rebooking process was a nightmare. Very disappointed and I will not be using KAYAK ever again. So stressful."
Pros: "Very professional and caring."
Cons: "Was ok"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was great with live tv and a assortment of current movies to chose from."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Delta Comfort+"
Cons: "Boarding In-flight entertainment Meal Service"
Cons: "Spacing people out until this covid is over"
Pros: "Lisa I. was one of the best flight attendants I have ever observed. She enjoys being on the airplane with people who need help, comfort, to complain about anything. She was all over the airplane and refused a tip when I tried to insist she accept it. She said, “I have been doing this for a long time, I am tipped by seeing passengers having a pleasant flight.” I had goosebumps and the two women to my left and right were also impressed by her professionalism. I pray that Lisa is working on my flight home!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing, even with 30 to 45 MPH winds, the plane was gentle. The passenger next to me was scared. Lisa said to let her know if she needed anything, the woman was fine the whole flight. Lisa came by with extra snacks and she smiled and said she was doing well!"
Pros: "The employees were as good as they could be, given the atrocious handling of the situation by American Airlines and its policies."
Cons: "We were 1.5 hours late leaving for an unknown reason (not weather). Then, it appeared that we didn't try and make up the lost time in the air (we also landed 1.5 hours late.) This caused a significant proportion of the passengers to miss their connecting flights. American didn't do anything to help other than offer a "discount" of about $10 off of over $100/night hotel rooms in the Philadelphia area to sleep overnight in Philadelphia. This was absolutely lousy customer service by American, and will definitely make me avoid American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."
Pros: "We got there safe. The flight was smooth and ryhe crew was friendly"
Cons: "The plane door wouldn’t lock so we were delayed a while. The food cost too much so all you get is a cookie and a cup of coffee and the bag cost $30 to check. I miss the days of complimentary services."
Cons: "If delay to much pls let customer out of plane"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally polite and helpful!"
Cons: "The entertainment system at my wife's seat was broken - very disappointing."

Cons: "I STILL HAVE NOT LEFT RIC!!!!"
Pros: "Checked luggage at the gate smoothly"
Cons: "2 tables were hanging off on 1 side on the right row 30. I pushed them back together but were still crooked and could fall out again easily."
Pros: "Flight kept being pushed back multiple times. left about 3 hrs late. Then after boarding and waiting to take off, the pilot tells us a light came on the "dash" and he has to have maintenance come to check it. That takes another 30 plus minutes. Not a good start to the morning."
Cons: "Never finding out what happened to the our original plane that was supposed to have left in the morning."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Pros: "Newer seating configuration on A321. Decent leg room."
Cons: "Crew claimed turbulence prevented in-flight service. Also couldn’t use GoGo WiFi from either of my iPhones. Disappointing, unremarkable flight."

Cons: "As always tight seats."
Pros: "The crew was pleasent and helpful"
Cons: "Didn't get my bag, on either end"

Pros: "Going down stairs to tarmac in CLT was very difficult for this old lady"
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "Usually I take a non stop flight with LATAN from LAX to LIM. It is always great."
Cons: "This time, however, from the get go I had problems. The attendant at ticketing sent one of my bags in without removing the part of the ticket I needed. Second, the attendant at the gate took my carry-on down because she thought it was too big. I have this bag for years and I travel with it everywhere with me. Then, I could not find my carry-on in Lima and hell started. I asked one guy that had an orange apron and was helping with the bags. I told him that I did not see my carry on. He sent me to American lost baggage upstairs. I had to wait 40 minutes for the office to open. Then the woman working there was very unprofessional and rude and told me that I should have made a claim at the counter in the baggage claim area. Well, there are no signs that indicate that there is a counter where to claim your lost bags, you have to just be clarivident and know according to LATAN personnel. They found my bag and call us around 3:45PM, when they close at 5PM. Well getting to the airport before 5pm was a Mission Impossible action movie. Try getting to the airport in Lima during rush hour...finally, I got there on time to get my bag, had another encounter with another personnel that, again, attempted to blame it on me instead of doing her job efficiently and with a smile on her face...What is wrong with airlines personnel???"
Cons: "Plane was SUPER old. As a result: No entertainment: Couldn't relax with a movie Limited space between chairs: Couldn't use my laptop No Wi-Fi: Couldn't work Old looks: I felt I was in a museum Obviously the plane was broken: 3 hour delay, missed parts of a wedding Good job!"

Pros: "Trip on time"
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat was broken. Was a bummer since we added a extra hour ground hold for weather."
Cons: "3 hour delay waiting for pilots"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to accident on the road. AA was more than helpful in trying to reroute me BUT British Air did not want to cooperate so my trip is now cancelled. This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "No one sat in the middle seat next to me"
Cons: "Seats and leg room are too small Had to pay to get the exit row"
Pros: "The crew was one of the best flight crews I have ever met! We had many of the same attendants on the flight back to MIA, as well. Give them raises!"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and short. They were not welcoming and an attendant asked if I could "just pick the meat out" of the food considering I am a vegetarian. That is unacceptable and overall they just seemed annoyed that they were working on that flight and did NOT go beyond to make the 13+ hour flight comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was quick and everyone was nice."
Cons: "No entertainment but it was only and hour flight."
Pros: "Non stop"
Pros: "Loved the individual seat back entertainment"
