Cons: "They bathroom up front airplane should be first class and back airplane have there bathrooms"
Cons: "Boarding zones is confusing. What does boarding zone "basic" mean?"
Pros: "Availability of WiFi, a charging port and media options puts Delta a step (or two) ahead of their competitors. The professionalism of the crew, as well as the complimentary food/beverage options are also excellent."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault, but my 6’4” frame doesn’t fit very well in a middle main cabin seat."
Pros: "The crew was light spirited. Took the angst out of the long stressful wait"
Cons: "Punctuality. Flight was 2 hours late"
Pros: "Lift off and landing was excellent"
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Pros: "Crew okay but they don't circulate much. They just stay in back."
Cons: "Whole entertainment system NOT WORKING."
Pros: "There is Nothing that like"

Pros: "Food, timeliness, comfort"
Cons: "Not sure"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew was so lovely and accommodating, flight was smooth, and I was impressed with the meal service. I travel a lot and this was one of my best experiences. I will definitely favor Delta in the future."
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate and it changed 3 times to Accommodate others."
Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."
Pros: "The food was good The crew was fantastic, friendly and accommodating Flight was on time"
Cons: "I was near the bathroom.. stank a bit"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and in time. I enjoyed the WiFi service and the extra room in the seats."
Cons: "I didn’t use many of the services since I slept for most of my flight. While I did enjoy the WiFi, it was kind of spotty throughout the flight. Some of my texts did not go through. On another note, this box forced me to type a negative response and would not let me go on to the next question until I submitted something. Additionally, it forced me to type over 50 words. This should probably be fixed for future use."
Cons: "A bit warm on the plane and late taking off."
Pros: "I've been beaten down to expect a bus ride on flights. However, Delta surprised me. The crew members we're kind, and did the best they could to keep us comfortable."
Pros: "Crowded boarding area, but no standing around for long. Quick boarding. Entertainment not available so can't rate that. Good crew"
Cons: "The vegan meal was not good"
Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."
Pros: "The weather was bad in Atlanta. We were rerouted to Minneapolis and made a connection to Philadelphia. No problems."
Cons: "The male flight attendant my section was very unpleasant to the elderly passengers in my area and just left me very uneasy about the flight"
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: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Long layover in Atlanta. Terrible terminal setup in LAX . Although we were on two connecting Delta flights, we had to leave the arriving terminal and take a bus to another. The second terminal (Terminal 2) was small, crowded, and had few food options."
Pros: "I didn't like much about this flight."
Cons: "Flight left late. When we landed the sky bridge was broken so we had to walk outside, which isn't a big deal but it took a while sitting on the runway for the stairs to come. Then we proceeded to baggage claim and waited a few minutes and one of our 2 bags was there. The crew member then said "that's everything. If you're missing bags come see us." Well about 5 people on a small flight had to see them. My bag was stuck in JFK. I was told id have to come back to the airport tomorrow. At this point id been traveling for close to 24 hours. Im not a happy camper. I usually fly JetBlue and this has never happened with them. Delta acted like its a normal thing with them. I paid 25 dollars to check each bag. How can both my bags not reach their final destination together and how come this seems like a normal procedure for Delta. I paid you for a service and now I have to drive back to the airport or wait for you at home to deliver my bags whenever Delta feels like it. I probably won't fly Delta again unless I absolutely have to."
Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."
Cons: "My roundtrip flights with delta were all delayed at least 2 hours. That's what you pay for for a cheap flight. There were no inclement weather and the staff didn't give a reason for the delay."
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!!!"
Cons: "They should provide good hindi movies and songs in the flight"
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Arrived 15 mins late and then taxied for another 5-10 mins."
Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Pros: "The tv on the back of the headrest was great."
Cons: "Too much chatter over the intercom."
Cons: "It's just a really small plane so the comfort isn't great but only a half hour flight"
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Pros: "Left on time. Boarded easily and arrived early"
Cons: "Flying :)"
Pros: "Got delayed due to the computer shutdown"
Pros: "Free rebooking"
Pros: "Flight late 46 minutes, they forgot I asked for a vegetarian meal, my business class round ticket to Peru did not gave me acceds"
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "Everything from boarding, service, arrival time and deplaining was smooth"
Pros: "attendant and gate crew were very pleasant. Once the paperwork mess was corrected we did not have to wait in line to take off"
Cons: "Sat on the plane at the gate for close to an hour. Very warm It was quite a while before they told us that paperwork had been done wrong. More waiting. Plane was late by 30 minutes arriving"
Cons: "The airlines need to board and deboard by group number."
Pros: "The stewardess that was serving refreshments threw my pretzels at me and refused to list off drinks. There was no menu in the seat in front of me, so I was curious of my choices. Extremely rude and unprofessional, there is no excuse for the way I was treated."
Cons: "Hire stewardess that are professional and polite."
Cons: "Only negative is that the American Eagle flights must take a shuttle from the remote terminal."
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Pros: "Missed our connection flight. Time to close terminal to far away. Ran to gate closed as we got there."
Cons: "Spending night in Chicago O'hare airport where we rerouted."
Cons: "American Airlines continues to lag in their ability to proactively communicate updates to their customers. Then to top it off, they lack empathy and a true ability to accommodate customers."
Pros: "I was there on time .."
Cons: "Save seats for your mistakes and compensation for my time and missed reservation.."
Pros: "Average with nothing exceptional. My wife requires a wheelchair and that gets you through the process from chair side to boarding with no lines to wait in. But that’s normal for any airline and it’s usually the airport service."
Cons: "The usual, roomier seats, on time"
Pros: "Crew didn't show up was horrible"
Cons: "Schedule your employees beeter"
Pros: "The crew was amazing on our American flight from DFW to PV"

Pros: "Service and meals."
Cons: "Middle seat."
Pros: "Being prompt"
Cons: "Ran out of food I liked."
Pros: "Tulsa to Chicago was nice."
Cons: "First flight was delayed, reschedule for new flight 4 hours later, second flight delayed. Barely made connecting flight. Plane was almost empty, I’m 6’4 and asked mid flight to move to exit row because my knees was pressing into the forward seat. 1 person out of 6 seats were in the exit row and the gentleman attendant denied my request. I didn’t flinch about my full day of delays and connection issues but on an empty flight it would have been nice to catch a break. I landed in Pittsburgh at 12:30 at night and got to my hotel at 1:30am with an 8 am presentation. AA delays really have created a discontent with my business trips. As I use AA as my primary airline I hope this doesn’t continue or I’ll switch to United for future business trips monthly."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Service, quality of food, availability of food choices"
Cons: "People were so rude"
Pros: "i arrived alive"
Cons: "My flight was delayed on the way to Puerto Plata on 9/9 which made me miss an entire day and I was billed for a stay at the resort. I was booked to a crappy room in MIA that I had to get changed to another hotel. THEN my departing flight from Puerto Plata back to the US was delayed 2 plus hours (as was the first flight) due to a flat tire that had to be replaced. I missed my connecting flight and had to be placed on the next flight to DCA which was the last flight. This experience was the worst. I do not have a favorable opinion of American, of which I have flown this airline for years."
Cons: "rerouted through Philadelphia."
Pros: "It was a great overall experience"
Cons: "Didn't have a meal but I still loved what they did serve"
Pros: "Smooth flight, takeoff, and landing. Efficient boarding and unloading plane. Excellent timing of departure and arrival. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "No leg room. No food. No entertainment. Long taxi time to gate after landing at DFW. Crew all business not that friendly."
Cons: "The aircraft was tiny and we were delayed"
Cons: "Plane never arrived. Forced to rebook a day later"
Pros: "Uneventful, on time, boarded fast."
Cons: "Just an observation, as soon as the plane stops and the fasten seatbelt sign turns off, the first people to stand are all the older white men on the flight. Never noticed that before but I'm sure it's true on most flights. Check your privilege."
Pros: "When we left the gate"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. Able to leave early which really helped get me to my connection."
Pros: "I liked how quickly we boarded and the options for entertainment. It was nice when they gave us the whole soda instead of all ice and a few sips."
Cons: "Got a tad hot in the plane and had to gets gone looked at for an extra hour"
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight and quick boarding time."
Cons: "All good!"
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat and it actually had less leg room than my standard seat on my Delta flight."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Great customer service, very friendly and helpful. The whole experience went considerably better than we expected since we did not know how our son was going to handle it. All in all we were very happy thanks to the wonderful AA staff that helped us at each stop."
Cons: "Limited drink and food choices. It was a short flight, so I think it's understandable."
Pros: "*finally* getting rebooked"
Cons: "The aircraft was downgraded, so there were 12 "overbooked" seats. The flight was delayed several times, with each new delay only being acknowledged after the previous departure time had already passed. Eventually, the flight was "delayed" to 3:15, but then it was bumped BACK to 2:45, so one woman ended up missing the flight because she had gone to the lounge based on the 3:15 departure. I accepted a voucher, but as the original flight kept getting delayed and I couldn't receive the voucher until the doors closed, I almost missed the flight I was rebooked on. If airlines would just communicate better (e.g., tell us there's a delay *before the departure time has passed*), people would be much more willing to deal with the hassle."
Pros: "The flight was pretty quick; boarding and exit went smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was old (25 years), no power supply at seat, tight spaces, movies played in widely spaced monitors located over the center aisle."
Cons: "The lady next to me was too large to fit in her seat. She clearly needed a second seat, but instead the stewardess just brought her a buckle extender. I was in an exit row and was smashed to the wall almost the entire trip. I was dissapointed that AA didn't require her to purchase a second seat on what was already an overbooked flight."
Pros: "The flight was delayed and there was a lot of confusion. My seat was uncomfortable and they didn't offer any food."
Pros: "First Class was nice but not worth the extra cost - my opinion."
Cons: "First class, besides bigger seats and more foot room, was not worth doubling the cost of coach."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled and then the flight I got rebooked on also got cancelled so I had to spend the night in an airport and miss a day of work."
Pros: "Smooth and quick"
Pros: "Everything ran on time, which was surprising because I've heard horror stories, but I was surprised. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The landing was ROUGH!"
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly once we were finally on our way."
Cons: "Kiosks that worked were rare. Crowds trying to get boarding passes and finally getting their luggage checked were huge. Not enough staff to help confused passengers. Overall, the situation was something I have never experienced with any other airline."
Cons: "Delayed because of cleaning crew showing up late.... Totally avoidable. Gate crew was not helpful"
Pros: "Fast check in, timely take off & arrival Excellent and friendly service"
Cons: "Lovely flight, but onboarding groups were a nightmare. Given the chaos, they started forcing bags to be checked early."
Cons: "The plane was almost two hours late leaving. That being said, I think it was weather related and it would have been nice to know the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Baggage delay, flight delayed by 36 hours and no customer support"
Pros: "typical somewhat comfortable seating"
Cons: "VERY cramped."
Pros: "The plane size and the individual monitors on each seat."
Cons: "Some of the attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helped me reroute my flights."
Cons: "I took a 3 leg journey so I expected to be flying all day, but every flight was delayed going out and one flight was delayed coming in. Plus there are never any gluten free snack choices on the flight."
Pros: "- The boarding process went very fast and smooth for such a packed plane."
Cons: "- food was HORRIBLE. I asked for the chicken dinner and it was COLD and disgusting. There should always be a pasta option on a flight. Also, they ran out of red wine before dinner. - the staff skipped over me TWICE when handing out beverages. I had to remind them that I existed twice and they didn't apologize for skipping over me."
Pros: "Friendly Staff - on time"
Cons: "No leg room even though I paid to upgrade my seat !"
Pros: "Heidi was very nice!"
Pros: "The free WiFi and entertainment"
Cons: "The airplane maintenance issues and I missed 3 connecting flights bc of it"
Cons: "I could've actually made it to savannah tonight but I've been stuck in two different customer service lines for over 3 hours"
Pros: "The flights themselves were adequate."
Cons: "The travel itself was a nightmare. Mechanical delays caused missed connections. We were re-routed multiple times and every single flight was delayed at least an hour."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight delayed, updates were poor, plane took off and landed again, further delays, more poor information, then when we landed no one was on the Customer Service desk."
Pros: "Aircraft temperature was nice, which is controlled by the pilots"
Cons: "United boarding system was down United flight attendants on my flight said they would not help us in emergency over an announcement Outdated seat entertainment with directv THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR Seats always feel too small but I’ll just include it here"
Cons: "Ride was bumpy"
Pros: "There were some great employees but unfortunately one of the team didn't share their personality"
Cons: "There was one employee or steward who just didn't seem to want to be there did his job but compared to the others was not on the same page of the team"
Cons: "death in family. refuse to refund tickets. I will never fly united again."
Cons: "I was wearing a sweater and a jacket and still froze. It was incredibly cold like a freezer. Other passengers were bundling up with whatever they had. Climate control made the trip uncomfortable. E wry thing else was fine."
Pros: "On time Nice crew"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"
Pros: "Everything! The flight left on time and landed early. Service was great and the staff was super."
Cons: "No chargers at any seat in coach and flight was delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "The plane was delayed because it had no air conditioning. We got on after an hour and a half delay with NO AIR. I was almost sick the entire flight because it was so hot."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour"
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: "Good tail wind made it early"
Cons: "United employees could stand to learn some better customer service."
Pros: "WiFi with Free Entertainment movies"
Cons: "Nothing, it was on time and very accomadating."
Pros: "The staff were fairly friendly. It was a short easy flight"
Cons: "I didn't care for how tiny the plane was but the pilot definitely knew what he was doing. I still felt safe."
Pros: "I was sat in an exit seat."
Cons: "The lady in the seat next to me was so overweight that I couldn't sit comfortably for the entire flight - I had to lean out and it hurt my back!"
Cons: "Departure was delayed somewhere between 30-45 minutes."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence. Horrible landing...very abrupt."
Pros: "Not applicable. Do love the size of the Tulsa airport and ease to get to United gates. Yummy waffle snack!"
Pros: "Flight on time!"
Cons: "The plane was small and bags barely fit on board"
Pros: "First time travelling with United, usually travel with American but united was a bit cheaper...absolutely loved it! Except thw flight was delayed but customer service was exceptional! Definitely choosing United again."
Pros: "The staff was most welcoming and helpful! The space was good and we really liked the overall comfortability. Also, we liked the individual T.V.'S too!"
Cons: "Really no complaints"
Cons: "I'm 6' 220 pounds, not small, but not huge either. I had to cross my arms or forcefully keep them out in front of me the entire flight. The bigger plane to Tulsa was comfortable, the express flight back to Denver was uncomfortable."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by an entire day and I gladly accepted the change, I did not argue. Then, on my return, I arrived 20 minutes before my flight and the desk associates would not issue me my ticket. The flight had not left, I had not missed my flight, theywould not let me board for not being early by 40 minutes (I was there 20 minutes before). The reason this pissed me off is because I had to pay 2 additional hotel nights which wound up costing me additional 300 dollars which United WONT PAY FOR. I want at the very least 300 dollars worth of credit, it is unbelievable."
Cons: "It was a very small plane and the air must have not been working because it was very hot and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very good."
Cons: "Though tickets were purchased many weeks in advance of flight, seating options were not offered online. Paid extra $35 per ticket, for side-by-side seats."
Cons: "I never went to the destination you are sending this to me for. I've never heard of Valparaiso."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "How small the plane was. No room for legs or overhead luggage. Turbulent....not a smooth ride at takeoff or landing probably due to the size of the plane"
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"
Cons: "The loud engine noise and WHY load from front?? Load from back so your not bothering everyone."
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Cons: "When I found out I had to pay for my luggage that was it for me. Everything went downhill from there."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Missed the flight because the connection was late taking off and landing.'so I am stuck on O'hare"
Cons: "Man in front of me smelled so every time he moved the odor came back to me and since I was stuck in the last row it had no where else to go!"
Pros: "Simple and easy to check in, board and even upgrade my seats."
Pros: "Overall everything was good. We made good time. The crew was personal and funny. It was a smooth trip with nothing serious happening. I just never know how backed p security was going to be. I wish there was a way to change that."
Cons: "The seats were so close I didn't have an armrest for two hours. It was just really close. Also, why do they not serve Dr. Pepper products?"
Pros: "On time, safe flight, friendly crew and arrived 2 minutes early! THANK YOU!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Grand Junction is a small airport so getting through TSA was a breeze, even though I have two knee replacements and zippers on my pant pockets. The United staff, at checkin counter and on plane could not have been nicer. Thanks for the snacks and sparkling water. In flight entertainment on phone, great! Please offer a Credit card without the $95.00 annual fee. I could become a regular."
Pros: "I liked how nice and friendly the flight attendants were."
Pros: "Early seating, left in time, friendly staff."
Pros: "Everything was as described"
