Frontier Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Eagle, and Delta Connection are the airlines operating regular flights to Illinois from Orlando, Dallas, Atlanta, and Denver.

From ages 4 to 8, children can sit in a forward-facing seat. Children between 8 and 12 years old can use a booster seat.
  • For passengers traveling with pets, you'll find pet relief areas at both of Chicago's international airports and also at Central Illinois Regional Airport.

Pros: "The crew was great. However I have had issues with take offs and landings with Alaska the last two times I’ve flown with them. Literally have been stuck for more than an hour on the tarmac both times."
Cons: "I think that Family’s with young children need to have their own area in the plane. I was screamed at and kicked by children for most of this flight. The extra hour on the tarmac was torture."
Pros: "Love the entertainment options with my own device, food, and power at the seat"
Cons: "Entertainment was disrupted. Departure was delayed by delayed departure of the previous flight without enough explanation to those of us waiting to board"
Pros: "Alaska is the friendliest airline, throughout every touchpoint we have with them."
Pros: "The cheese and fruit tray is great."

Pros: "Able to get earlier flight to ORD Did offer complimentary baggage service to destination"
Cons: "Had to pay additional $25 each for earlier flight then had seats behind a dog and toddler both unrestrained and noisy during a 3 1/2 hour flight. WiFi connection was very slow. Only water and one pack of crackers - on travel West via Delta, we had at least 2 offers of variety drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding process."
Pros: "Great customer service, fast boarding, media available was good."
Cons: "No outlets to charge electronics. Plane itself seemed a bit on the older end."
Cons: "No free food was offered. Movies were not free."
Pros: "timeliness, courteous, comfortable, charging outlets at every seat."
Cons: "weak movie selection"
Pros: "The Go Go entrainment app is great! Also, best flight crew in the sky."
Cons: "I fell asleep before I could order a drink."
Pros: "New aircraft with plugin for laptop, free movies, and WiFi for a price. Friendly and professional crew. Totally productive flight. Alaska Air is my new favorite."
Pros: "I liked the food options and the entertainment. Staff was really friendly too,"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Slow boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Put on an American carrier despite having booked with Alaskan. Told the wrong gate. Then told the incorrect boarding time at the correct gate. Missed flight due to gate keeper. Had to gheck my back on the next flight despite ample room to carry on. EVERYONE that works for American Airlines is incompetent, rude and terrible. I WILL NEVER FLY YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN. Your company should be sold off and every employee fired."
Pros: "Fruit platter. On time. Efficient. Professional Plane was very clean"
Cons: "Seattle airport first security man grumpy. Not helpful. No reflection on Alaska airlines however"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, wonderful food, spacious aircraft, wonderful option to get a tablet to watch a movie. Loved being able to plug in at each seat with USB charger etc."
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable. I just had a standard coach seat and it was as roomy as other airlines premium economy seats. Alaska airlines had reasonably priced food and drinks, and the entire flight crew was friendly and professional. I also liked the free GoGo texting feature."
Cons: "For some reason the airplane left the gate about 40 minutes late. It was also very difficult to hear the announcements from the flight deck. The only announcement that came through loud and clear was the spiel for the Alaska Airlines credit card."
Pros: "I have been very pleased flying Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "This flight was rather turbulent but not the fault of the airline. Still on time."
Pros: "Great service. Offered me a seat switch on full flt! Internet was tough and not working well but gogo almost always is. That was minor. Easy nice flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "My flight was on time and checking in was made super easy and fast. One of the flights was a bit delayed but that was the weather so I didn't even mind because the staff was attentive."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to use the restroom when we still had 20 minutes or so to land. As they were collecting final garbage, the restrooms were locked and I was not allowed to use them. I can understand cutting off the use of them once the flight crew is seated but they were still walking around and I really had to go. I don't recall a warning for this. If there was an announcement it was not audible over the hum of the engine. I'm very dissatisfied about that final part of my experience."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "ran out of many meal types"
Pros: "Your typical airlines for check-in, baggage etc but I was pleasantly surprised when our seat assignments were together for the return trip w/out having to select them. Baggage was extremely fast on the outbound flight but took a few minutes on the return flight."
Cons: "Again, as with most airlines, the seating room leaves a little bit to be desired but the leg room was adequate for a 6'4" man."
Pros: "I've always had a good experience with Alaska Air."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and they made sure to fit all carry on bags in the cabin rather than having any of them checked. Boarding from the rear of the plane was a different approach, but a nice change."
Cons: "This flight was overbooked and there wasn't room for my carry on"
Pros: "That I made it to Chicago at some point, however late."
Cons: "Flight was delayed even before we started boarding. There were weight restrictions, so people were moved around. When served lunch, there was nothing else but pasta. Found that odd for First Class passengers. I had to rush to finish my movie as they had to collect players ahead of landing - found that unnecessary. Then there was delay right before landing."
Pros: "comfort of seats, space, food, friendliness of pilot and crew"
Cons: "Still waiting for a good airline to provide blankets again"
Pros: "Plenty of overhead bin space; no excessive announcements; ultra clean cabin; flight deck explained the lengthy ORD taxi time to the arrival gate"
Cons: "FA's appeared to be rushed during boarding. I was asked to put up my tray table, and I spilled all of my French fries on the floor as the flight attendant watched. I had to leave the mess all over the floor. My seat neighbor offered to help clean the mess. I cleaned it up on my own with a safety information card as a scoop and dumped the mess into a puke bag. The flight attendant should have offered a trash bag as there was plenty of time before takeoff. I flew for your airline as a flight attendant for almost four years, and I know AS flight attendants are among the best."
Pros: "Both my flights were great, and especially my outgoing flight from Chicago, the attendants at the gate were amazing. I don't think I've ever met more helpful, nice attendants--nothing seemed rushed, and they were helpful and happy. Similarly, the attendants on the flight were really nice and cheerful. Flights left on time, and I got in early on my first flight. I've flown a lot in the last year, but this was one of my better experiences with an airline. Check-in was really easy too."
Pros: "I like a lot the treatment"
Cons: "I requested an aisle seat because I have broad shoulders and a knee that hurts if I can't extend it. EVERY TIME a particular stewardess would pass, she'd SLAM into my shoulder, with no care or apology. This was very hard to enjoy a drink, or sleep, or do anything on the flight."
Pros: "Great Service and only $25 same day change fee!!!!"
Cons: "Seating a bit tight, but better than most competition"
Pros: "easy check in. (emergency seat with no extra cost) kind staff. board on time. but not declined seat, new plane with two power outlet."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Seats, beer selection, very friendly staff I will be flying again if I get the chance and I never say that anymore about other carriers."
Pros: "Pilot information/anoucements."
Pros: "Leg room was good. Seats and airplane was tidy. Provided complimentary snacks and drinks on time Boarding process was fast and easy. Crew service was excellent."
Cons: "for red-eye flights -recliner will be better than normal seats."
Pros: "Very clean, on time, smooth flight. Overall, really great, thanks."
Pros: "Every airline has the same basic situation to manage. When I fly Alaska, I always feel that everyone who works for Alaska works to do the best that they can and pass it on to their customers. I hope that they continue growing. They would be my first choice to fly everywhere."

Delays are terrible. I had to go to the rental place a day after because the flight was delayed super long. Super annoying.

Perfectly fine

Flight cancelled and they wanted me to fly the next day instead. I had to book on another airline to get home.

Changed the gate number. Didn't notify me. Almost missed my flight.

Seats OK, just too little leg room.

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "No tv to track the flight progress"
Pros: "Not Particularly."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. Vouchers for future flights"
Cons: "Not having a 5-hour delay."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and great, especially since turbulence made their jobs stressful as well."
Pros: "Great take-off and smooth landing by the pilots. :)"
Cons: "Wi-Fi connection was very week."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to rainy weather and "network delays" The weather up and down the east coast was not an issue We then looped for 1 hour flying slowly in a hold"
Pros: "Wonderful crew."
Cons: "Nothing. Smooth flight, friendly crew, and early arrival. Can’t be beat!"
Pros: "on time! quick, free, baggage! free snacks and drinks"
Pros: "The seating was a lot more spacious than on the Delta flight we took to Portugal three weeks ago."
Cons: "The gate agent got the boarding group messages mixed up on the display screens, which allowed some people with C boarding numbers to board with the first group of As, but aside from that minor issue everything went fine (it was a full flight, and too many people carried on luggage, as usual)."
Cons: "i literally think I got frostbite on the plane, it was so obnoxiously cold."
Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "There was no food or drink"
Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "We got no food or drink"
Cons: "Not 5hrs late"
Cons: "The seats are small but I'm also a big dude so that might be a factor"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Been on time. Not been hot."
Cons: "Left over 2 hours late!"
Pros: "Southwest crew"
Cons: "Full flight Late Have to pay for movies"
Pros: "Generally went well"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Packed like sardines No drink or snack provided"
Pros: "We are novice flyers. The entire process from purchasing tickets to getting luggage was new to us. WE DID IT! There was always a friendly person to help us, even if we didn't need it :) Our flight was late leaving "waiting on a young passenger" but we landed on time :)"
Cons: "Even though ALMOST everyone was pleasant, helpful, and personable, our stewardess acted like she could use a good night's sleep. She seemed disgusted that we wanted a soda AND a glass of water and made sure we waited a good long time for "your second beverage". It was a 4 hour flight and I am sure with 3 attending the cabin she had plenty of time to get everyone served. Her whole demeanor was just plain grumpy :( She also scolded another couple for taking a bag of cookies and chips--even tho she had plenty for her area of seats. There were no rowdy or impolite passengers that we could tell, but she must have had a very bad day."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Being delayed for over an hoir"
Pros: "The flight attendant was funny and on point thru the safety announcement! Wonderful crew !"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The crew did a good job trying to serve snacks & drinks during the short time they weren't restricted to their seats by all the turbulence we encountered."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence; obviously not the airlines fault, but we didn't like it! Very much not fans of boarding scheme resulting in people traveling together that can't find seats together. Why don't they actually stop people from bringing larger than allowed baggage on board? One person had 3 large items, and others also items obviously bigger than allowed."
Pros: "We arrived over a half an hour before our projected arrival time. Awesome flight, smooth in the skies and very nice attendants!"
Cons: "Southwest Air is too far from airport exits and entrances. I will not take this airline again."
Cons: "Yes excelente servicio"
Pros: "What a great crew!"
Pros: "Flight was Good. Pilot was informative. Everything was fine it just would have been nice to have a screen on the back of the seat to watch TV or the news."
Cons: "Again I would have liked in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Very nice comfortable seats and lots of shows to watch."
Cons: "Had to ask for a drink 3 times"
Pros: "No turbulence but the crew decided they didn’t want people standing up. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Plane arrived on time, even though it left 10 minutes late. Nice landing. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Passengers were hussled into lines to board long before necessary. Front lavatory ran out of toilet paper rather early into the flight. Evidently it was not attended to in the stopover in Boston, perhaps due to the late arrival and eagerness to get going to arrive in time in Baltimore."
Pros: "Thank you for safely bringing my college student back to school!"
Cons: "C boarding"
Pros: "I liked the transparency provided by the pilot and crew about the reason for the 3 hour delay, and their positive attitude about it. I also understand that safety comes first, so was fine with leaving later if it meant we'd actually land safely."
Cons: "I didn't care for the quality of the pretzels or peanuts."
Pros: "On time, pleasant staff.. ..great service"
Pros: "Flight attendants were lovely."
Cons: "The airplane was so frigid, I couldn't think bout anything else."
Cons: "An hour late, false alerts about the departure time, no info on the board about when the plane leaves"
Cons: "4 hours late and no explanation from the gate agents"
Pros: "Staff was very transparent"
Cons: "They should've just cancelled the flight."
Pros: "Got to the layover in just the nick of time to run to the next Southwest gate to catch my flight home."
Cons: "Zero entertainment; zero meals (snacks only); cup of soda; couldn't sit with family because boarding pass was at the end of the "Bs." Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "On board free wifi TV"
Cons: "They kept changing departure gate and time 8 or 9 times. LATE and no reason"
Pros: "Nice attendants and smooth flight. Checked in often if I needed anything, e.g. more coffee. One attendant even noticed the dude ahead of me didn't flush the toilet and held me off to flush it herself! Now that's service!"
Cons: "Wish they had food purchase options, but at least the snack packs were free flowing. Relatively comfortable for coach."

Because flight delayed 2 hours and I have make change on my plan I have to waste my time I am not happy with it. I am not recommending this airlines for my family and friends.

Cons: "Nothing... great flight, uncrowded flight, plenty of extra seats to stretch out. Seat were very comfy and spacious which I loved even got a full can of soda unlike the usual half a cup and done lol. Would definitely fly Jet Blue again and prefer also. Way better than the other carriers."
Pros: "MINT CLASS is amazing"
Cons: "The headphone jack.was worn out, so the audio was sporadic."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed, waiting on pilots to arrive. The. We sat on the runway for a long time without leaving as well. Crew also made us gate check bags when there was still plenty of overhead space left on plane."
Pros: "crew was great."
Cons: "flight was 3 hours late with lame excuse. tray tables disgusting. felt unclean. cookies tasted gross. pa system not working. live flight not working either"
Cons: "Horrible communication during flight delays and pilot timing out. Sat at the gate for hours with no communication."
Pros: "Crew was great, seat very comfy with good legroom."
Cons: "Two hour delay between boarding and then sitting on the runway."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment units were just there for the sake of it, and didn't actually provide any entertainment"
Cons: "JetBlue is amazing and my favorite airlines for domestic travel."
Pros: "Not too full of a flight"
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in economy seats."
Cons: "clearly communicate delays. We had no idea what was happening or what our options were."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Tv did not work on a 4 hour 40 minute flight."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy but that may have been because it was a small plane."
Cons: "After landing we sat on the tarmac for 2 hours! This is unacceptable. The gate was occupied by a plane having mechanical issues. This was the second time I have flown JetBlue and the second time I’ve had to sit on the tarmac for hours because of some sort of issue. Never flying JetBlue again if I can help it."
Pros: "Crew was nice. legroom seemed a little better than other domestic flights."
Cons: "You have to pay extra to sit in the exit row and there was no one in the entire row. Isn’t that a safery issue? Also, what really made me mad, instead of printing our boarding passes at the kiosk we went to a person (husbend had questions about Precheck) and she made us buy return tickets right then, on JetBlue. We had not decided on our return and wanted to leave it open. Can she do that? If not, I would like my money back."
Pros: "The movies were okay. The crew was accommodating."
Cons: "We spent 45 minutes on the tarmac, enough time to watch the baggage personnel throw our bags into his trolley with zero reason for him to do so. If you pack anything fragile... good luck."
Pros: "Easy boarding and flight"
Cons: "There’s nothing special about jet blue anymore."
Cons: "The new security check in with the automated bins."
Pros: "Huge leg room in coach. Free large bag of snacks and they didn't charge me for a snack box filled with chumous, bean dip, crackers, biscotti etc value $9. I thought Jet Blue was like Spirit, but its TOTALLY different. Not at all a budget level airplane or crew."
Pros: "Extra leg room, comfortable, leather seats, cleanliness of the cabin, efficiency and friendly manner of the staff, assigned seating and enough room in the gate area to be comfortable. I also appreciated being able to hear and understand all announcements made in the gate area and on board by the support staff and the captain."
Cons: "Some passengers in the gate area were "seat hogs" sitting in one seat and taking up one to two extra seats for their baggage while people were trying to find places to sit, especially when we experienced delays.. This is not the fault of the airlines, however, but it occurs to me that there could be gentle reminders on in print or in announcements asking people to make room for other passengers."
Cons: "2 hr delay. Poor ventilation"
Pros: "Leg room was great. Free WiFi and TVs made the flight very accommodating."
Cons: "Crying baby. Not the airlines fault."
Cons: "Flight over 3 hours late leaving. Flight attendants rude, and nothing comped for drinks or food to make up for it. Had to circle for 45 min due to weather. Sat on tarmac 30 mijn on other end."
Pros: "Having a tv"
Cons: "Sound jack not working properly , older plane no amenities"
Pros: "The crew could not have been more helpful and pleasant making the delay bearable as they were overtly communicative w all via text, email, and in person keeping is updated! HIGHLT RECOMMEND and will definitely be flying again. :)"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight. On time, all good things."
Cons: "An individual who was very overweight sat next to me and took up half of my seat as well. I understand we all deserv to ride comfortably and my intent is not to shame them. That said, if someone can’t put the armrest down I think the airline should require them to purchase both seats as it’s very uncomfortable to be in the position of having no seat for the entire ride. I’m an average sized person so it was a challenge but even tiny people deserve the full seat they purchased. There really should be a rule or something."
Pros: "Wide array of snacks and drinks, tv/movies to watch for free, excellent staff from beginning to end, and tons of legroom. The complimentary free check of my carryon way awesome."
Cons: "I liked everything! No complaints at all."
Cons: "Six hours late, then there wasn’t enough fuel and had to wait for paperwork multiple times. Hands down the worst experience I have ever had. I will not be flying JetBlue again."
Cons: "Almost a 9 hour ordeal. 4 hour delay because of weather for flight because one crew that was supposed to take our flight had “timed out.” Didn’t take off til after 1am. Finally landed and sat on plane because a plane at our gate was “disabled.” It’s 4:33am, I’ve been off the plane for half an hour, no baggage coming out of the carousel yet and no sign of this absolutely horrific experience ending anytime soon."
Pros: "Loved all the available dedicated JetBlue staff available to answer questions. Have not flown JetBlue often but heard many great things."
Cons: "Weather delay which is out of JetBlue’s control but once we landed (6 hours later) we sat on the runway for an additional hour because our gate had a disable airplane occupying it. I think JetBlue could have done a better job ensuring a back up gate was available or giving their passenger updates on the situation."
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "Delay and the space between seats"
Cons: "I never got the opportunity to fly because I was stuck in unusual traffic in a tunnel for over an hour just minutes from the Boston airport. I was later told there was a fire. I called the 1-800-JETBLUE number and I explained that the situation. The agent said that there would be a $75 change fee and at 4:47 pm there were no more flights out that night and that I would also be charged the fare differential the following day. I quickly went on line and found a deep discounted fare on United for $56! When I got to the airport there were several other people with the same situation. Not a enough agents on staff and no concern that I might miss my new flight on United. Thank Gid I acted fast and got another flight that evening or I would have needed to spend the night in the airport like a woman and her mother traveling to San Jose! Need more professionalism !"
Pros: "everything was good except that I didn’t like to pay for blanket"
Cons: "to pay for blanket"
Pros: "JetBlue has great staffdelayed by an hour"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour for a 2 hour flight!"
Pros: "When I got off the plane"
Cons: "it was late, the plane was dirty, the tv screens didn't work, and the seats were small."
Cons: "Normally I love Jet Blue but we were delayed first for three hours. The only reason I even knew was because I asked someone if I was at the right gate because it didn't state it was a JetBlue gate anywhere. Then we were delayed two subsequent times for a maintenance issue and a gas issue. That didn't inspire any confidence whatsoever. We were also told we would be receiving a flight credit which I have yet to see."
Pros: "Plane departed early and arrived 40 minutes early. Well done"
Cons: "Prefer BLUE Chips rather than cheese x AND usually they call for VETERANS to board before the start of general boarding. This is the first time Jet Blue DID NOT extend that courtesy"
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Pros: "leg room & movie"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable (an Airbus A320). Entertainment system adequate. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Two dogs in cabin. They were mostly well behaved. A group of six children loosely supervised by a couple of adults. The children were allowed to wreak havoc on the center section of the plane's cabin."
Cons: "Late flight delayed"
Pros: "Boarding, crew, bathrooms, entertainment, smoothness of flight, wifi"
Cons: "Always hope for more than water and pretzels, but those days are gone I guess."
Pros: "Most of the basics were good."
Cons: "The flight was substantially delayed and when we got to Chicago we had to wait a long time for a gate agent so that we could deplane because only one gate agent was working at that hour (10:20 p.m.). Also, the flight delay notifications came after I was close to the airport and at the airport--earlier notifications (if possible) would help. The tv/movie portion of the entertainment was not working at all."
Pros: "Changed to 3 hour earlier flight WITHOUT extra "change fee". It was FREE !! Enjoyed in flight TV with FREE drinks and snacks. As United goes backwards in customer service and costs, JetBlue leaps forward. Good work JetBlue."
Cons: "More options in snack boxes and/or food items"
Pros: "The plane arrived safely in DC."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight was delayed but it's understandable."
Pros: "Solid crew, comfortable flight, free tv and Wi-Fi"
Cons: "A few factors led to a 6 hour delay. Not necessarily Jet Blue's fault but it was certainly a frustrating day of travel"
Pros: "The plane had 2 wings"
Cons: "Staff is rude. Customer Service couldn't possibly be worst. All their food has meat in it. Staff is slow and incompetent. Never had a more dreadful experience with an airline. TAP IS THE WORST AIRLINE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED, and I fly 2 times a month."
Pros: "The on flight tv was down so I couldn't listen to music like I nearly always do on my flights."
Cons: "I didn't like waiting on the tarmac after we landed for what seemed like 25 minutes or so"

I felt hostage

Even after posting extra for comfort +, the seats do not recline!

Pros: "Fast easy flight"
Pros: "Super friendly staff, great service and delicious food. The competition has nothing compared to Delta. We’re switching"
Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."
Pros: "Taco"
Cons: "Taco"
Cons: "Great flight but old regional jet"
Pros: "You're kidding!!!"
Cons: "Seating 3 across. the passenger on the isle seat got served and the other passenger and myself were ignored. NO SERVICE!"
Cons: "Very bad service, airline unrespectfull, discortesy"
Pros: "surprisingly spacious seats. plane felt brand new. on screen entertainment was great, and relieved to have charging inputs for my device in the seat."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Cons: "Two bags delayed between JFK and MSP."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Cons: "My 'window' seat had no window! Feeling was claustrophobic"
Pros: "Great service from boarding to landing"
Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."
Cons: "This was my worst EVER airline experience. It was delayed 27 hours and the snow was not the only problem. When we finally got on board a plane we sat on the runway for over two hours - then they FORGOT to load the luggage!!!"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the landing also was very good. The selection of movie are plenty."
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Pros: "Attentive, respectful and nice crew, swift take off and landing and awesome views"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went well"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."
Cons: "Cramped seats and the food wasn't that great. Plus final meal was served late which lead to quick eating and feeling rushed."
Pros: "The flight was calm"
Cons: "What I didn’t like is the inconviece where we had to change flight hour and aircraft and move to another one and we were delay for one all hour plus the 3 hours that we were there before the hour of departure that is really really bad"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In between Delta and Aeromexico changed my flight and made me travel more than 24 hours. In addition, I was traveling with a suitcase and nobody was able to pick it up for me. Layover time was 6 hours originally. Service from Aeromexico at JFK is the worst"
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Space looked a bit cramped in business class but I was pleasantly surprised at the length of the flat bed and the additional foot well space once I'd reclined the seat."
Cons: "Need to fix the flickering lights in the JFK club lounge, the opposite of relaxing!"
Pros: "I got off the flight at out side,but i forgot to carried my small bag .and then the Crew returned me the bag very soon.they were very kind,thank you very much."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Service from the crew."
Cons: "Quality and comfort of seats. Quality of food. The TV screen was from the 80s."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First day our flight got canceled 1 hour before leaving the airport. No good explanation given. Planes were landing and departing from Columbus just our flight got cancelled which made no sense. Over the phone no one was really helpful. Very bad experience with Delta"
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Good entertainment with games for kids, movies etc."
Cons: "No meals (5+ of flying), need to buy earphones, no place for hand lauggudge"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled. Terrible customer service. My bags didn't travel with me. My vacation got screwed up."
Pros: "Every thing went well thx"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Early arrival."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing."

I was upgraded to plus and had lovely roomy seats. My overhead light was broken and they turned the cabin lights off so I couldn't read my book.

Insanely crowded, seats are extremely small and narrow and I’m THIN

Having food and entertainment

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn’t even offer water to drink and came up and down at least 8 times to collect garbage. What garbage you haven’t offered us anything to throw out. They announced for their crew protection service may be slightly different if there is turbulence whatever"
Cons: "Better customer services"
Pros: "Crew was horrible. The flight attendant was rude to clients for no reason. On a power trip"
Pros: "Comfy seat, great entertainment options"
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be."
Cons: "If we had the option to get off the plane earlier. We sat in the plan for almost 4hrs before it took off it was super hot and I was hungry."
Cons: "We had 3:10h delayed..."
Cons: "Flight crew member crept giving alcohol to passenger in 7A, who was harassing passengers around him the more he got drunk"
Pros: "The crew were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable, my back was hurting from a very short 2hr flight."
Cons: "It was an overbooked packed early morning flight with International passengers partnering with the flight. Everyone had bags and no one woukd check them to rhe final destination which caused delays. This was the only issue."
Pros: "Entertainment system is ok"
Cons: "Not canceling our flight, delivering a plane out of a hangar on time and boarding with efficiency."
Pros: "There was a short delay but it was done professionally and I got a notice about it. I had nice people seating next to me and the craw was ok."
Cons: "It was upsetting that they didn’t have earbuds/headphones as my iPhone headphones can’t connect to the TV so I had to watch a movie without sound. You should have extras. I also wish they had a banana for us, it’s better than pretzels. And cheep and healthy."
Pros: "The TV's on the back of the seats were nice."
Cons: "The threatening tone of the counter associates about last minute checking of your bags because they don't have enough space in the overhead cabins. Why offer everyone that option if they will force groups 7-9 to check them?"
Pros: "Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Rude, rude people working at the desks. Saw many people have problems with them, and then they were rude to me as well."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Well I missed my cousin wedding because of the delay in NY, Chicago and AZ how is that even possible American Airline"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault, but we had three hour delays due to weather in NYC, so I was in a foul mood."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late due to weather!"
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. 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."
Pros: "Comfort and crew"
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Great staff and crew. Keep you posted and informed. Good service."
Pros: "She was amazing!! Juggled many tasks and got at least 15 of us on via standby. She was a pleasure to work with!!"
Cons: "First flight was cancelled and alternate flight was delayed. USB charging port didn’t work. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Not overcrowded or over booked. Efficient boarding process. Smooth flight."
Pros: "I was not seated with my husband when we were given our tickets and they were gracious enough to give us exit row seats by each other."
Cons: "As we were boarding the plane they told us that we needed to check our bags. No other explanation was given. I brought a carry on so that I didn’t have to check my bag. I thought maybe it was because there wasn’t enough overhead space, but as we got on the plane the overhead bins were very large and extra space was left as they began to close up the bins for take off. It was extremely annoying and I felt I was given no choice."
Pros: "Crew was nice, biscuits were nice"
Cons: "crammed like sardines, if you're over 5'6" You charged extra to get a little more leg room and if the roomier seats are sold, you're out of luck."
Pros: "On time and arrived early!"
Pros: "The employees were nice. That's about it for positive words."
Cons: "As we were a few minutes from our scheduled boarding, the flight was canceled. The reason we were given was the weather, but the weather was fine in Chicago and it was fine in New York. No other flights were canceled, so the weather excuse didn't hold up. They wouldn't put me on another flight that day, so I ended up leaving the next morning on the first flight out but I was still late for work. They didn't seem to be very accommodating or apologetic and I didn't even offer compensation to those who had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight out. C'mon AA. Step it up! I would think that if you cancel a flight, you should help your customers get home the same day. Do whatever you can. I don't think you did whatever you could for most of us on that flight."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and redirected to a nervy airport. The staff at this airport was all on board and ready to assist everyone is getting the most current information and putting us a new connecting flights"
Cons: "The check in at LGA was not the smoothest. Most of the kiosk weren't working and was making it hard to check in"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Fact we got there"
Cons: "Poor customer handling at Laguardia and no info why we were being delayed."
Pros: "Was fairly standard flight. Left in time."
Cons: "Was in last group and had to check carry on."
Pros: "Very full flight arrived 20 mins early."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Flight attendants partying with a row of passengers for over an hour. Southern bonding"
Pros: "On time departures, on time arrivals. Not interested in entertainment or food. Regular flier to/from Chicago & LGA"
Cons: "Seating is just way too cramped, especially for an elderly woman!"
Pros: "It is good"
Cons: "No tv on seat. Those dumb comedy tv show"
Pros: "It was exactly what I was looking for. Comfortable, easy and faster to board. I loved to be able to use the ticket on my phone as boarding pass, that made shorter the whole process."
Pros: "Entertainment and seats on the plane"
Cons: "Crew was not very polite, looks like they don't like their job, boarding was very slow and confusing, who ever was directing at the door did not have a speaker, passengers were looking for information and no one had an answer. Check bag stands outsides, those guy don't have any maners, they talk to people in Avery disrespecful way"
Cons: "Apparently due to staffing issue I sat in a plane for 2 hours before it took off causing me and my partner to miss our connection."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "My flight was scheduled for 5.37pm, but came to the airport thinking that I could get an earlier flight to Chicago and I was there at 1pm, requested for standby status, did not get it because am not platinum of diamond member, asked for $75.00, of course I didn't want to pay and stayed in the airport thinking that my flight would be on time, but it was delayed and delayed and took off at last, saw O'Hare airport but it looks like the pilot could not land it because he did not get the clearance, but as a passenger, I saw the flight going around and around the Ohare area, at least 6 times, then after landing taxing took for ever. I WILL TRY NOT TO FLY IN AA AGAIN."
Cons: "Smelled Exhaust Gas when we pushed back inside the cabin, whih apparently is common, but I've never smelled on any flight in my entire life. No personal screen for entertainment"
Pros: "Zero"
Cons: "Whole experience and staff walk with a sense of entitlement in a rude type a way and makes me feel some type a way, bad"
Cons: "Overall attitude, more co concerned about making a buck instead of making customers happy"
Cons: "The seats are way too small."
Cons: "My connecting flight got delayed and they said I couldn't get another flight until the next day, and if I wanted a direct flight it would be late at night so I had to do ANOTHER connecting flight to only go a few states away. I had to get a hotel because of the mess and the airline would not composite it for me. So paying for a hotel and missing work equals not very happy with American Airlines."
