Pros: Food selection and frequency of service
Cons: We sat in premium, the first row after first class and the trays were in the arm rests, so we couldn't move our out of the way. Very uncomfortable seats for paying an extra cost for them.
Pros: I like that they board from the back of the plane to the front. so much less awkward.
Cons: I have a laptop bag on rollers that fits under the seat in front of me, but i got challenged with some incredulous doubt by the gate ticket taker. I get people try to lug a bunch on the plane, but it gets old when the bag fits, I shouldn't get hassled.
Cons: Reading all about the menu offerings only to be told there is no food left when it came to my row 27, seriously they didn't know it was a full flight? The plane smelled like vomit when we boarded...anyway to remedy that?
Cons: Delayed both ways
Pros: I survived

Cons: There were about 50 types of memberships that kept getting called before us peasants could board. I liked the cheery nature of one of the boarding staff.

Cons: No complaints!
Pros: The check in and customer service was really helpful
Pros: Was late to the gate, and with the ramp still attached to the plane were told the flight was closed. Still traveling, through San Diego and board a plane this morning to Kauai. I sent an long email to customer service. Not a happy camper.
Cons: What happened to the complimentary meals? Lordy, it was a 6-hour flight!
Cons: Bag got taken off plane because plane weighed too kuch
Pros: Being on time
Cons: Nothing specific

Pros: Great crew
Cons: Food ok
Pros: Friendly crew
Cons: Never flying with Delta again
Cons: When I pick up my bags
Pros: Great crew. Old plane but comfy
Pros: I was fortunately upgraded to 1st class. The flight attendant was adequate. However, did not live up to the level of service I have come to expect.
Cons: See above
Pros: The pilot did an awesome job of welcoming travelers and keeping them updated on the flight status.
Cons: I sat almost to the back and there was not enough lunch by the time the crew made it back there so I had to eat breakfast instead of lunch.
Cons: Late departure
Pros: They were friendly and prompt, joked with us as they worked. The flight was smooth and on time
Cons: Got nothing to drink in 4 hours. Crew was LAZY
Cons: The “newbies” were excited and loud, the main attendant was very.long.winded.every.single.time.she.spoke.
Pros: Crew was fine - not their fault that DELTA changed my flight at the last minutes with terrible options on rescheduling my flight!
Cons: Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!
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: Smooth flight
Pros: Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights.
Cons: Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757.
Pros: Excellent flight with efficient service. Flight was on time and friendly staff
Pros: Friendly crew
Cons: Business class seats were short whdn lay flat. Metal footrest at the end made it uncomfortable to hang feet off the end. Little privacy
Pros: Great service from ground and flight crew.
Cons: Not comfortable on today’s packed planes
Cons: Small airplane, noissy
Pros: Attendant was very good at explaining ground staff members actions to a fellow passenger
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: Delta is always great to fly on, but this was not the best..
Cons: We had delays EVERYWHERE. What is usually a 40 minute flight from Birmingham to Atlanta took an hour & 25 minutes. Once I landed, I had to connect allll the way on the other side of the airport. Once in air, things were fine, just hot. However, due to weather, we had to fly for an additional 45 minutes in the sky. The crew was as nice as they could be in that situation just overall a frustrating.
Pros: Excellent communication, friendly staff, and timely flight.
Cons: Overhead bin too small for expect carryons. Should offer free checked bag at check into reduce this delay.
Pros: The kind bars
Cons: They gave a hard time checking in because I didn’t mark I had a lap child. I honestly looked and the website wasn’t clear. Then (Bob who checked me in in Tucson) didn’t bag my car seat. And it came super dirty. I’ve never had an airline not bag the caraway. Especially when I asked. Southwest is a better company to work with. Disappointed
Pros: Boarded quickly and on time.
Cons: After boarding everyone they made us wait for another plane to arrive to take passengers on our flight to Syracuse since we had many empty seats. The wait was way too long and completely unnecessary. Not only did they keep everyone on the plane for a long time but they made us very late.
Pros: Delta did a really good job as always. Cheaper, more comfortable, and a WAY better experience than Alaska Airlines.
Pros: Crew was friendly
Cons: We were delayed an hour and a half
Pros: The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok.
Cons: The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!
Pros: I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars...
Pros: Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)
Cons: Seats not very comfortable-very close quartered
Cons: Although I understand the needed delay, it would have been nice to have been served ice water in the hot cabin, instead of a small cup of tepid water.
Pros: The entertainment is good; several new movies
Cons: The dirty seats, the awful food and wine
Pros: Everything went smoothly.
Cons: Like ALL planes today, too crowded.
Cons: Spent $130 on a very uncomfortable aisle seat.
Pros: The environment and efficiency.
Cons: The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well.
Cons: Flight delayed
Cons: Everything was perfect
Cons: Missed connection
Pros: Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment.
Cons: Wifi was too slow to stream (audio only) a live sporting event. No satellite tv for the entire flight with no announcement - I had to ask the crew twice what was up.
Cons: Flight was delayed due to late arrival of plane. Crew was not courteous and rushed people to board
Pros: All computers down. Cancelled flight. Spent night in airport. No accommodations. No food or drink.
Pros: Excellent flight. Nice new aircraft.
Cons: To be fair the flight from Honolulu to Lihue was on Hawaiian Air, not Delta per se. The crew was rude, but in the terminal and on board. Didn't really rate food and entrainment because of the flight length.
Pros: Carol Ann flight attendant was very good at keeping us comfortable with the delay in takeoff. She kept us comfortable
Cons: Flight delayed due to change of pilots
Pros: The crew was friendly, fast & efficient.
Cons: It should have been made clearer that we had to check in at Delta & not Virgin Australian . We waited 45 min. in a holiday line we didn't have to. It was also difficult to find Delta at the Sydney airport. It was hidden in the back. We shouldn't have to wait 30 minutes for customs to open at LAX at 6 AM. I didn't like having to pay $2400 for a ticket when you dropped the price after the Paris incident & I found the same ticket would have cost me only $869. I should be reimbursed the difference. I also don't understand why we had to wait till 10:15 to sit inside the gate area. Directions for boarding should have been clearer.
Cons: This flight was significantly delayed while we waited for a late flight attendant to arrive. Delta offered us nothing but sad meaningless apologies. On top of that the PA system at the gate didn't work so finding out news as to what was going on was extremely difficult.
Pros: I was unable to fly Tucson to Dallas Due to mechanical issues. Rerouted to Phoenix than Detroit. Flight was EXCELLENT
Cons: flight was packed and attendants were nice but gone are the days of comfortable travel in coach
Cons: Our flight was cancelled til 24 hours later. And then delayed two more times before we were able to fly out. Very frustrating experience
Cons: Not telling us we would be arriving 30 min early and then getting in 30 min later than scheduled AND Having priority baggage actually be a priority
Pros: Everything is good
Pros: Nothing, my flight was delayed so bad that if I would have had taken off I would have been stuck in DFW Airport until probably Friday as I would have had missed my flight and all the flights to PR were sold out until the 19th. Luckily my brother was so proactive that he was able to re-schedule a flight for the 19th.
Cons: If the flight would have taken off on time.
Cons: Passengers need to DISTANCE 6' and keep their masks on. Which I realize is put of the hands of American. Appreciate the fresh white bag with a bottle of water and crackers. Thank you.
Cons: Hit heavy turbulence ,scary
Pros: Boardered ok
Cons: They lost my luggage, crew member was short and impatient with elderly people sitting next to me.
Pros: Mechanical difficulty and ineptitude -twice at repairs. Undisclosed landing complications due to runways issues in Phoenix resulting in missed connections.
Cons: Reasonable arrangements were made for hotel, shuttle, and meal voucher, but the airport was virtually closed for the night and getting to ground transportation nearly impossible. Thank the airport cleaning service who were the most helpful
Cons: You could have been on time. You could be accountable. You ruined my wife’s 40th birthday by failing to fulfill you’re end of the deal.
Pros: There was a lot of entertainment choices
Cons: Seats are so crammed. Plane was late.
Pros: Comfy seats
Cons: The crew
Pros: Fast and professional
Cons: Seats are really small, the A/C doesn’t work very well, very uncomfortable seats
Cons: Onboard entertainment was not reliable on one of our TVs, and the earphones ports barely worked, had to hold the plugs to hear. MinimL food choices, and you had to go to the rear of the plane to get it. Staff on plane was not super friendly.
Pros: The flight itself was good however, the cancellation/rebooking process by the airline carrier was less than satisfactory.
Cons: The airline carrier was not very accessible. I was on hold for a long period of time (during late night hours) for questions.
Cons: The seats are very uncomfortable - period. I do not have any type of back problem but I was sore after that flight.
Cons: Seats on American Airlines are the pits. So much so, that my back has gone into spasm. Bottom line, in future I'll do my best to avoid flying American!
Cons: Bigger seats. More room.
Pros: The crew is so friendly. Perfect landing. Perfect flight!
Pros: The plane was very comfortable and clean. The seats were larger than those on other economy flights. In flight wi fi entertainment was great, as long as you have a device.
Cons: The flight was delayed from 9:35 PM to 10:15. No announcements were made at the gate. We were all standing around (no seats left) and only had text or email notifications informing us. I overheard crew say it was entirely avoidable, and the fault of some crew that weren't at the right place on time
Pros: The flight was early.
Cons: More leg room needed.
Pros: It got us there
Cons: Beverage service was cancelled due to turbulence but I’ve been in flights worse and they kept their service Had to wait long for a ramp at a remote terminal then take 2 shuttles to terminal.
Pros: On time professional staff
Cons: Old plane for this fight.
Pros: The positive attitude. The spirit of happy.
Cons: The Five hour delay. Especially after we had paid $70 each to get on they earlier flight
Pros: Friendly flight crew and pleasant to interact with.
Cons: Had a significant delay due to wind conditions in Chicago. However, instead of waiting at the gate, we waited over 45 minutes on the plane instead of letting us know about this additional delay prior to boarding. Also, the legroom was laughable, as the person in front of me hit my knees as soon as he began reclining.
Pros: First class seating comfort and service. Even my flight in the main cabin was relatively comfortable, but I'm a smaller stature person so... On time promise kept every flight.
Pros: Our flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. They accomodated us with free snacks and sandwiches. The flight crew were very professional and were nice to us, because a lot of us were worried about making our flight. They kept us updated with all the changes. They had good entertainment selections. The pilot got us to our destination about 5 minutes early.
Cons: Our flight was delayed about 7 times, we changed gates twice, and the I got to my second layover with 20 minutes to spare instead of the usual 2 1/2 hours. When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them. Instead of trying, she juat said no. I felt like an inconvience to her, like it was my fault I didn't have enough time between my flights.
Cons: First flight TUS to DFW was delayed by 3 hours causeing us to mist all the remaining flights. Had to scramble to find other flights DFW to LHR and LHR to DUB. We arrived at our destination 10 hours. No reason for the delay was given. Lousey service on AA.
Pros: The flight crew was nice and sweet for an early morning flight.
Cons: We delayed in TUS on the runway and in LAX due to congestion at LAX. Nearly half of us had to sprint to make out connections. Luckily, LAX never launches planes on time. More a fault of LAX and it’s inefficiency than AA. Still annoying.
Pros: Crew was friendly. Good food options in coach.
Cons: Boarding process (AA in general) needs improvement considering the plethora of groups. Takes too long to board. New seats are downright tiny.
Cons: 51/2 hour delay!! Should have brought in another plane.
Pros: On time. Nice plane.
Cons: Not much leg room, seats are narrow.
Cons: All. Disappointed to see Etihad airlines declining so rapidly. What used to be my preferred airlines, not anymore and definitely can predict the downfall.
Pros: Streamlined boarding process
Cons: Poor leg room and no video . Older plane.
Pros: No issues boarding and arrived at the destination a little bit early so I easily made my connecting flight
Cons: Flight itself was a little rough at times but what can be done about that?
Pros: First class on TUS to ORD flight - very good flight attendant who was very pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable... she remembered which drink I was having.
Pros: Flew 1st class, everything excellent
Cons: The airline did not inform us that the flight lands and passengers would need to travel by bus to the terminal. Just a surprise. I would like to know when booking the flight.
Cons: Delays, attitudes, and fees
Pros: The flight was delayed for 2 hours. That's not human.
Cons: After the 2 hours delay, I had to take a shuttle that took forever to get to the terminal that has my suitcase.
Pros: The friendly personal
Pros: Clean, smooth flight, on time. Enjoyed the blankets and the inflight movie options were good.
Cons: Cramped, and we didn't get seats together... Hate the system where you have to pay $30-$95 additionally to choose your seats before check in, just doesn't seem fair when the tickets are already crazy expemsive and you're paying for your luggage as well... if you don't pay extra, you (we) end up sitting across from the restroom for six hours of in and out excitement.
Pros: Crew was very upbeat and attentive to passengers. We sat in Main Cabin plus and there was a lot of legroom.
Cons: 1. Limited menu of food for purchase 2. wifi did not work over the Pacific--their wifi is ground based rather than satellite based.
Cons: After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening.
Pros: They didn't delay our flight so that was good. My boyfriend's name also didn't show up on the reservation at the kiosk. One of the employees was happy to help and found him on the reservation.
