The flight was bumpy and hard landing. No in-flight entertainment onboard couldn't connect to wifi.

My baggage arrived at the airport on an earlier flight. It would have been nice if I would have gotten a text. I waited until all the luggage had arrived before Ivwent to the baggage counter!

Flight was very dirty. The magazine was a dirty mess. When asked for a replacement it never came. Poor quality flight attendants.

Seats are crowded & tight. Flight attendants were nice enough. Flights were on time.

Seats hardly reclined back, Flight attendant tried to give me biscoff cookies, and I have a gluten intolerance.

Very below what I expect from Alaska/ On Feb 19, my foight JFK to Portland Flight was three and a half hours late leaving JFK (NOT due to weatherat departure or destination) In addition to losing this time, I then had to take a taxi home, rather than public tranist due to the late hour. This added $45 to the cost of the trip.

Good flight, but the air was very cold throughout the flight. One small blanket was not enough.

Small, slow inefficient airport. Not enough staffing. Previous flight had a gate issue due to short staff. Our departure was late. Then bags weren’t loaded, more delay. THEN we sat on tarmac for 25 min

This was my return flight. Everything met or exceeded my expectations. Crew was polite and friendly. Two small snacks and beverages were served during the 5 hour flight. Flight was not full so I had a bank of seats to myself. Being long legged, I might have liked a little more leg room, but it was okay. The flight to my destination had tons of leg room, I expect it was because I was in an exit row then. Loading went quickly and we arrived early. There was very little to complain about by today's standards.

My seat didn't lean back. Also I think the whole "we know we don't have enough overhead space for a full flight, but we'll try to get as much money as we can before asking people to check their bags for free at the gate" thing is kinda icky.

Mario was great. Made a night flight on a small aircraft pleasant and memorable.

It was great I love flying Delta and have never had a bad experience with them

They were 2 hours late departing with no explanation. I missed my connection, was rebooked not in correct seating that I paid for. Over all of was horrible. I now know why I've not flown Delta since 2018

I love the free wifi and headrest screens. I would consider Delta even more because of this but the seats aren't so great. The snacks aren't very good in my opinion. I bought a Bloody Mary and that was great! So just be comfortable with better snacks and the airline world will be yours.

Crew was not helpful. Other passengers in first class were over served blatantly over intoxicated.

We just spent $6000 on our first trip since pre COVID and we were stranded on the runway of our departing airport for 2 hours and 15 minutes while our layover was only an hour and a half. We were told by the pilot we were next for de-icing and then got bumped by 3 other planes. Pilot went on to say they only had one guy working the de-icing where they usually have at least 2. In Rochester. In the heart of winter. Someone missed a step and should be fired. I'm not done.

Food service was bare-bone. Better bot to have any at all rather than hand out premade coffees and cookies to random few passengers.

Bag drop off was slow and annoying. Only 2 agents at the entire delta desk, and no one directing traffic for what line to be in, many confused people slowed down the process. Boarding was fine. Seats in Delta comfort plus were fine. Snacks were great! Definitely a bonus. The entertainment system was awful — old, slow, not responsive, and completely unable to play games due to some kind of error. But on the other hand, thank you to Delta for the free WiFi. That made it better.

Crew was great. Friendly, calm, interesting, happy to be there. That makes a huge difference. Plane was very quiet. Also quite empty so I had three seats to sleep across

Crew were exceptional. Plane was quiet and quite empty, so I had a row to sleep across.

Some entertainment and food/snack service would have been nice

All the pessengers should be wait in a line útil the creo and piloto are arrived.

Planes seat could be bigger very uncomfortable for tall humans.

1 hour waiting for suitcases to come out traveling in business class and food in business class is a sandwich? Avoid Aeromexico .

No space reserved for anyone who didn’t have underseat in front of them. Made it inconvenient to get the backs secured. No inflight entertainment in the 190. Bring your own! Food was excellent and we were surprised to get a full breakfast.

Cons: "left Houston more than 2 hours later, arrive in Mexico over 2 am"
Cons: "El problema es que nunca pude cambiar mi vuelo y con ustedes fue imposible comunicarse para que me auxiliaran. Muy mal por ustedes no por la línea."
Pros: "The crew was amazing , the site is ok"
Cons: "I love Aeroméxico , thanks for de service and the food."
Pros: "Plenty a space between seats. Ver confortable seats and small entertainment screens!"
Cons: "Better selection of movie?"
Cons: "Way too much people... We're in a pandemic and the plane was Full. Unacceptable."

Very uncomfortable seats and seat backs, and I am only 5’9”. Delayed due to crew issues, spent a long time with no ventilation. Teeny overhead bins. Wifi worked well. Arrived safely.

Boarding was friendly and quick. While the plane model was older with no live tv, the entertainment was full of movies and tv shows. All food was available. Pilots were very communicative with status of the flight. Flight landed on time.

Amazing comfortable chairs great snacks super friendly staff pilots did excellent job. Smooth sailing all the way. Definitely be flying United more.

Easy boarding in group 2. Landed 1/2 hr early. Delicious cookie snack.

I was delighted that we were able to get on the 4:40 pm flight rather than our original booking at 6:55 pm!! Other than that, the flight was comfortable and landed early😊

Good. The wife was not working but then it got resolved.

Missed this flight due to delays from my previous flight

We waited too long to get water while the plane was on the Tarmac awaiting de-icing.

The flight from Ottawa to Chicago took a lot longer due to DC in Ottawa. We got to Chicago and went to our gate to catch our flight. We only had nine minutes I found that very stressful.

Flight was delayed by over an hour and gate checked bags took 15 minutes to be delivered to the jet bridge.

Well, flight times cause some wait, but there were not times available and we understood. I didn't check any luggage, because it has become too expensive. I was able to add any extra items to my co-travellers check bags. [Luckily, this trip wasn't international.] Last, I hadn't flown AA domestically for a while, but partners and coworkers had warned me in advance that not all planes have monitors at every seat. Luckily, I was mostly prepared to use the in-flight entertainment and happy I was. The great: AA staff is always kind and comfort is way better than the budget airlines that I sometimes have to fly. I know my points and vouchers all expired over the last couple of years, but I still enjoy AA when I do fly with them. I also appreciate all of the locations we can go directly from pur home airport. Since we are traveling more now, I hope to take advantage.

Poor on time performance. Flight was delayed due to a lightbulb. No updates from the pilot. Plane was dirty and hot, AC didn't work well.

Perfect flight. On time departure and early arrival. Smooth flight.

It was right on time and crew were very courteous

Charlotte airport is miserable. For American I always have to connect from the end of terminal E to the end of terminal B and the stupid moving walkways are always broken. And the flights to all seem of least importance so they never leave on time in either direction.

Cut off carry ons, had to check, got on and there was plenty of bin space. Disappointing.

Nice clean modern plane no issues with the b flight

Being back games on the in-flight entertainment. Also your flight attendants need a break, raise, or overall attitude adjustment.

Flight attendants used to be nice to people. And any flight over 5 hours should have some kind of food other than tiny pretzels and one drink comped.

The food at Admirals Club was really great Pijamas were a nice feature The flight attendant was very nice and great attitude The aa.com does not work well specially internet service Overall a very good flight .
