The gentleman in the seat in front of me had packed some oxygen bottles in his bags and a handler came onboard to address this. He was polite and very understanding that the man was meeting a cruise ship in Seattle and needed them as life support. The handler took an address from him and said he would take the bottles to Fedex near the airport and sent them to him. And the passenger could send him the money later! I thin k the handler's name was Bob. He needs a commendation foe going the extra mile for a passenger! Find him and buy him dinner."

Then never offered water or additional items for rest of flight. Of 3 flight atttendants they sent one person to do the final cleanup while others stood around. Waited at gate after boarding for almost 2 hours so the catering truck could replenish the plane so u would think they could be more hospitable since our flight was not full."

Cons: "My seat didn’t recline. Don’t know why. Button would be pushed - didn’t matter. For a 6 hour flight to Reno AT NIGHT, that sucked. Then my TV went black about 1/2 hour into the flight. Crew didn’t know what happened, but it was a slew of tv’s on the right side of the plane (window seats mostly) that had this problem. These two things made for a tough flight."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"

Pros: "I like jetblue, everything is excellent,."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "See previous"

Pros: "Boarding was a fast and smooth process. Flight attendants were there to help with carry on luggage if needed. Always nice and do their best."

Pros: "Crew is amazing and friendly"

Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."

Cons: "Itinerary was changed from the one that was booked. Flight was preponed by 2hours."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I have never seen a gate attendant call each person by name as she scanned their boarding passes! At Delta I felt welcomed by every employee. Even the pilots greeted the passengers as they exited. All the other airlines just want my money, they want to cram me into smaller and smaller spaces and want me to sit there and shut up so they don't have to interact with me. I will fly Delta every chance I get, even if I have to pay more money."

Cons: "Flight delayed on runway in NY for 90 minuted"

Cons: "Really rough landing"

Pros: "I was with my friend"
Cons: "Delayed 12+ hours"

Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"

Pros: "Best Delta flight so far."

Pros: "Free movies. Clean and modern look to airplane."
Cons: "Could not get wifi to work."

Pros: "Everyone was really nice and responsive."
Cons: "Seats are a little older. Not as comfortable as other flights. But not bad."

Pros: "First time with AmExp Delta so no baggage fee, zone 1 boarding. seats are fine, newer aircraft, snacks were good and entertainment was good and easy to use. Staff and attendants were friendly p. All good"
Cons: "As far as flying goes today no complaints. As compared to 30 years ago I could do a book but nothing to do with Delta"

Pros: "Fligth were on time"
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Atlanta was 2:30 min Left at 6:10 arrive at 8:30 roughly Tried twice to get to my connection earlier and get 9:30 instead of 12:09 fligth to Daytona Delta was not flexible to allow me to book saying i did not have 55 min in between fligth which i had than lear n it will cost $75.00 to change the fligth - What? Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"

Pros: "Boarding was easy, flights on time Wi-Fi available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "Seats rather crowded in coach, small plane so it was also a bit noisy"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"

Pros: "On time. Good customer service. Easy route, no hassles."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "We were two for two on not being able to understand the gate agents announcements. Please keep in mind that not everyone flies frequently. I'm convinced that the routine of the job blinds both the TSA and airline employees to this fact. Clear and concise instructions would be great, regulars will continue to ignore you. So no harm, no foul."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."
Cons: "A complimentary sandwich would have been nice for a 4 hour flight."

Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."

Pros: "Food, crew, boarding"
Cons: "I had a screen in front of me that did not work. It was annoying. Fix it."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze....arrived slightly earlier than expected."
Cons: "Nothing to not like"

Pros: "pilot was great and you could hear him!"
Cons: "SOME kind of FREE food"

Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"

Pros: "Good first. Class seat"
Cons: "Lotsa turbulence, very hard to sleep"

Pros: "many movies"

Pros: "Greets you nicely, on time, caring staffs"

Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It wasn't Cathy Pacific operation."

Cons: "served snacks without drinks or at least water"

Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"

Cons: "The breakfast, no hot meal just sugary food."

Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."

Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."

Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."

Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."

Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"

Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"

Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."

Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"

Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"

Pros: "Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly."

Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 12, and all that Kept happening was me receiving text messages about delays pushing my departure time back to 5:35pm. I missed a big birthday event I was throwing for my class that I teach, lost out on money spent for the event and missed out on all the memories made that night. I never got to leave, ended up cancelling my flight. What a waste of time. Seems to always happen when I fly through United."

Pros: "Good cabin & flight crew; kept us informed."
Cons: "Ran late. Seats are time (I'm average weight & height). Windows couldn't have been lower or we'd have been looking at the gear."

Pros: "i was rebooked and am still on my way"
Cons: "i was delayed in ONT, making my flight an almost 24 hour trip from vONT to my destination. not fun had to reschedule car rental. luckily, they did not charge extra"

Cons: "Asiento incomodo"

Pros: "I liked nothing about my flights."
Cons: "I hated that my first flight was delayed a whole day and I had to fly out of a different airport to get to eugene. To add coming home I tried to upgrade my flight to Ontario to an earlier time and they refused to do so and said it would cost $75. I felt the least the airline could do was let me fly home an hour earlier since they delayed my flight a whole day but that didn't happen."

Pros: "nothing totally a rip off"
Cons: "I paid 125 for my hockey bag. Flight was delayed but no email or anything. Changing my flight was miserable staff so rude and people on phones can barely speak"

Pros: "Three hours late. No in flight snack since the weather was too bad for the flight attendant to bring a cart down the aisles. Pretty old plane, so kind of uncomfortable. But the staff was really nice and friendly for it being the holiday season, so they get all two stars."

Pros: "Plane was delayed over 2 & 1/2 hours for no apparent reason"

Pros: "every thing"

Pros: "Flight Attendants were nice."
Cons: "The flight was expensive and they wouldn't let us or anyone place carry ons in the over head bin. It was an expensive ticket and didn't include checked bags ($25 more). Carry-ons wound up being "stowed". It would have been nice to know before I bought the tickets that I needed a smaller carry on."

Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight from PHX to RNO the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."

Pros: "Smooth. No problems. Happy we didn't have to get suitcases through customs because you could handle in Canada. Happy gate was near where we got off."
