Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I love that the plane has extra space available between seats (with no one in the middle) & that everyone was encouraged to keep their mask on at all times."
Cons: "It was at a good pace"
Cons: "We PAID $30/each to check 2 bags, both ways, so $120 total. Then at the gate, BOTH WAYS, Delta Gate Reps allowed people to check bags for FREE, & pick up at bag claim, just like WE PAID TO DO. NO MORE DELTA FOR US!"
Cons: "The website could work for starters"
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: "Prompt boarding and departure."
Cons: "Refreshments and up to date airplane. Plane seem outdated and very loud. Flight attendants could use a friendlier demeanor"
Cons: "Being on time."
Cons: "Crew unfriendly."
Pros: "Crew was great. Planes with built in TV was even better."
Cons: "One really obnoxious kid kept screaming the entire time. Instead of charging for earbuds maybe give them out for those of us that don’t have any."

Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Cons: "The WiFi"
Pros: "new airbus plane. great luggage bins"
Pros: "The entire crew was hospitable & accommodating; I was very pleased with all of the flight crew!"

Pros: "Fine, courteous"
Cons: "The crew was terrible & rude."
Cons: "Everything. Flight got delayed, luggage was sent before i boarded the plane. Terrible service of Delta. Never again using Delta or going to Atlanta. Wasted two days already from my vacation..."
Cons: "The comfort of the seat, the food"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Took my carry on & checked thru Edinburgh. Now I have no meds, clothes or glasses. Very wrong. Others out on larger carry Ins."
Pros: "Nice ride, entertainment available and arriving a little early was a plus."
Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
Pros: "Crew was friendly enough, but not overly."
Cons: "Entertainment system was (again) not fully functional. No success to "noon-movies", such as games. Plane was untidy almost from the beginning. Check-in staff was functional, but not particularly friendly."
Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Didn't serve snacks with peanuts because someone one board had a peanut allergy"
Pros: "Easy boarding, helpful crew, on time, informative pilot"
Cons: "Fewer and fewer choices for beverage and snack"
Pros: "The service and snack selection is better than the other large US carriers. Delta studio is a decent replacement for the lack of PTVs on these planes."
Cons: "Delta offers a decent product on most of their fleet but the 717 or MD-88/90 can be extremely loud at the back of the plane. You better bring ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones and learn to read the flight attendants lips."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed, when it was time to board and take off, this was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Delayed flight. However, I know this sometimes out ot the airlines control."
Pros: "I told the crew I had a short connection time at a far terminal and I was worried because my seat was in the rear of the aircraft and they were able to move me up closer to the front to ensure I got off the aircraft quickly to make my next flight. That was amazing."
Pros: "Kenyatta Cheatham, our flight attendant was absolutely delightful! She made my flight enjoyable with her beautiful smile. She clearly loves her job!"

Cons: "Barking dogs. 4 around us! Middle seat."
Pros: "Crew was great, helped us board fast after a delayed arrival and to avoid needing a crew change (FAA Regs)."
Cons: "Plane was a D-90? The plane was very loud with vibration noise at very high decibels during the whole flight. Because of the extended flight (3 1/2 hours in the air) due to a storm system, they should have offered more food to travelers."

Cons: "I have nothing to complain about"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."

I was given no instructions on how to do this finally after speaking to a travel agent I got a phone numbers I could call. Called and was told what web sight to go to. Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly as well as the pilot after we had landed. Also was nice they gave us each a little water in a plastic bag as well as a snack"

Cons: "Taxi time on both ends were ridiculously long."
Pros: "borden pass hade no gate no."
Pros: "The seat was super Uncomfortable. Squished Middle seat that I paid $37 for (w/Priority boarding, see below). What a ripoff. The seat was designed specifically to torture passengers, of this I am certain."
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade that included "Priority Boarding", For AA, that meant Group 5 out of 9. WTF?? Clearly Bait and Switch - there's a big placard at every AA boarding gate that states: Priority Boarding 1-4 (to the Left) and "Main Boarding" 5-9 (to the Right). Fraudulent, clearly."
Pros: "The seat was So so"
Cons: "My food was cold had to send it back"
Cons: "My bag is misplaced and no one has an answer"
Cons: "Paid for seats so I could sit with my guy - still had zero leg room. Generally disappointed with the state of air travel in the US - feels like we're being herded like cattle. Would like to vote with my dollars to help airlines that value customers and aren't trying to pinch pennies/nickel & dime us"
Cons: "The boarding process at the gate was brutal and very disorganized and the persons working for American Airlines were overwhelmed and announcements relating to the delay were very confusing"
Cons: "Could be more caring staff"
Cons: "Circled for too long and had no updates from the captain on what was happening."
Cons: "Popup ad in already terrible gogo inflight media playback site stumped entire plan."
Cons: "They lost my bag in my layover at DCA. Even with a first class orange tag and 1:10 layover, they didn’t transfer the bag between planes on a Thursday evening. The planes were probably 300 feet away. Clearly their entire luggage tracking systems at DCA are broken. Even with 1:00 connections at O'Hare, DFW, PHL, my luggage has not gotten delayed."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Pros: "the plane looked new and clean"
Cons: "the leg space"
Cons: "Terrible rough landing for no reason"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled so we were rebooked for a much later flight which impacted our vacation. Call system was not working efficiently."

Pros: "Legroom, interactive lcd screens on seat headrests. Would fly again, affordable as well."
Pros: "Quiet clean bathroom good layover time"
Cons: "lost time and monies...and opportunities."
Pros: "If you are not in first class, they treat you like dirt."
Cons: "I saw the whole plane packed in the back with 6 people in a row, when the middle of the plane has plenty of empty seats. It seems that American Airlines will pack people who don't pay for choice of seats in the back. Distasteful practice."
Cons: "I called your customer service department which I believe is in India or Pakistan three times to ask them to help with an alternative flight and each time I got different information, when I asked to speak to a supervisor I was told by the punk on the end of the phone that that wouldn't be possible. I asked for his name and employee number and he told me his name was Michael, difficult to believe when he sounded Indian"

Cons: "Horrible long delays."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Couldn't get movies to play"
Pros: "Tiny airplane but single flght crew managed my and from what I could see fellow passengers needs commendably. Whilst I didn't like needing to hand in my carry on (without much warning so I didn't have time to pull out a magazine to read) on the plus side it was stored well as my suit carrier came out unscathed and you get your bags curb side as soon as the plane lands so you don't have to wait for the rest of the bags to unload."
Cons: "Because the airplane is so small there is not much room to move in the aisle (thankfully most people just sat down for the short flight), also you have to hand in your carry on baggage so that it is stored with the main bags."
Pros: "Good air and great stewardesses"
Cons: "Horrible experience in the ground system, they charged me $240 for my bags and the staff are really confused."
Pros: "otherwise ok"

The landing was smooth"
Cons: "Employees of united in Tampa airport are rood, to be exect lady Jennie M (or something starting with J and inial M) It was my flight back to Chicago. I had basic economy which means I can have only one personal bag (which I did, but it is lil bigger then regular women bags) I new it will fit cause I am flight with it all the time if I am going only for a few days and on those cheapest tickets. She gave me hard time telling me that my purse is to big to take on board and was making me to pay for that and the tone with wich she dpoke to me wasn't nice. When I told her that in Chicago they let me go with that bag, she said: "those united employees are not doing there job, if you want to go with it go, but I'll call too ur gates and they will charge you double for that bag" Which noone did, they did not even stoped me on gates, because my bag is perfectly fitting under the seat."

Pros: "The separate lines for group numbers."
Cons: "Kiosks service was confusing. I paid for my baggage and received my boarding pass. However, I was supposed to stay at my kiosk until an agent came. There were 10 kiosks with only 2 agents helping people and no screen notification or sign asking customers to wait. In addition, TSA pre-check is not available at this airport."

Cons: "It was delayed 2 hours, no compensation was given even when asked for."
Cons: "As a military spouse I was not allowed to check a bag free so I paid the fee. When I boarded I noticed many passengers bringing bags on that we're as big as the one I just paid for. They either checked for free or brought it on and managed to shove it in sideways taking up space that others needed. Some people brought three bags on!!! As a military spouse I feel cheated to have had to pay when others checked in for free at the gate. Not cool United, either let the spouse check in for free or make everyone abide by the so-called rules of one carry on that actually fits into that metal baggage guide. I would like a refund of 50.00 for the baggage fees I paid for this trip."
