Would’ve had to wait until 2pm for a flight home. Decided to switch destinations and rent a car to get home. Luggage also wasn’t on plane to Columbia, SC either even though they said they would be!!
Pros: On time departure and arrival
Cons: Paying for seats
Pros: No surprises. On time. Courteous. I suppose the most amazing thing is their app. It tells you when your bags get on! Also I forgot that I had a knife in my pocket. I ran back to the desk and she went back, found my bag, put the knife in there. Wow. What service. Also I notice that Atlanta is a lot nicer than it use to be. Attendants are more friendly and loading is more organized. Way to go Delta.

Pros: The boarding was smooth and in time. I enjoyed the WiFi service and the extra room in the seats. Plane was gorgeous! Staff was courteous and professional.
Cons: Boarding was awful. It took about an hour to board and no reason was given until we were taxiing. (The crew was delayed.) Overhead storage was insufficient. Seats are too narrow. I paid for extra leg room, which I got, but I don't appreciate elbows in my ribs for the whole flight.
Pros: In flight entertainment is nice but only seems to happen on shorter legs of the trip. Also, too many useless interruptions from crew during movie. You don't have to keep thanking the passengers throughout the flight. And the volume through your headset is way too loud on crew announcements compared to regular listening volume of your program.
Cons: Forced on later flight.
Pros: Once we finally boarded, it was fine- plane was new and clean and entertainment system was great. Agents did the best they could with limited information on flight status. Provided snacks at departure gate- but they were all unhealthy.
Cons: Flight originally booked with 2:30pm departure time, was pushed to 4:30pm a few weeks in advance. Then the flight was delayed on the day by 30 minute intervals until 9pm. Finally, we were switched to a different gate to board a different plane. Then sat on the plane at the gate for another hour so they could load all the bags. We didn't take off until 10:30pm- painful.
Pros: on time, good service,
Cons: i agreed to check in my bag at the gate when they asked for volunteers thinking I would get it at the gate of my destination but after i checked it in in gate attendant informed me that i would get my bag at the baggage claim
Pros: Free movies. Clean and modern look to airplane.
Cons: Could not get wifi to work.
Pros: Quick boarding, clean plane, good entertainment system.
Cons: Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?
Pros: Customer service was great
Cons: They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that.
Pros: Quick service - uneventful.

Pros: Comfortable aircraft with tv in the seats
Cons: Huge delay on my flight and most other flights from LaGuardia that day, lack of information on reasons for the delays .
Cons: Weather delay
Pros: Nothing in particular
Cons: So I originally had the free seat 11A. The app offered me what looked like a bulkhead from the seat map on the app at seat 10A for additional $19. I feel for it. No bulkhead, no extra room, nothing, waste of $19
Pros: Even though we couldn't reserve our seats we where able to call and change our seats to be together. (Mom dad and 2 toddlers)
Pros: Video screens at each seat!!! Thank you Delta!
Cons: Nothing, everything was great!
Pros: Flight was on time. Crew very friendly. Plane was clean, boarding very organized but I would suggest boarding from the back forward. This would eliminate blocked aisles.
Pros: Friendly, hard working flight crew

Cons: No snacks even for 1st class.

Pros: crew was nice
Cons: seat comfort was not good Seats are too crowded and not comfortable for those that are curvier.

Pros: Check in time was fast
Cons: Inside the airplane was freezing the whole trip
Pros: On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of.

Pros: Luggage made it without being stolen
Cons: Too many delays.. 2 of the 3 flights were delayed and I missed my original connecting flight in Miami
Pros: That we arrived safely and on time
Cons: The food was horrible for such a long flight and the seats were uncomfortable. Most airlines have neck braces to place one's head on. Neither flight had anything for one's head. I had my own blanket fortunately because it was cold...then hot... If one did not have an iPad or computer watching anything was impossible on a 6 hour flight. Never going to take this flight again aGAIN...NEVER PAID ADDITIONAL ON SUCH A LONG FLIGHT FOR SEATS. NEXT TIME I'LL STAND.

Cons: Unexplained delay in leaving but only arrived about 10 min later than scheduled. Took an hour from pulling into the gate for bags to arrive though which caused me to miss my shuttle. Never had to wait more than 15 min for any other airline at DIA.

Cons: Baggage did not make the connecting flight. Their baggage service is poor. Didn’t receive my 2 bags until 10:30pm the next day.
Pros: No delay, not crowded
Pros: Liked excellent food and beverage service by courteous and attentive crew. Flight was listed as serving only snacks so was surprised to be served an excellent Asian Noodle and Steak Salad and continuous beverage service. Flight attendant responded immediately when I had trouble with my headphone cable and brought me a replacement cable. Entertainment option with wide choice of live television was fine for flight and helped make flight go by fast. This was our first use of first class service, and we would consider it again. I had unsatisfactory experience with United last year and saw great improvement.
Cons: I would have preferred not having to travel to Newark to get Florida flight since Newark Airport was crowded and boarding experience took too long.
Pros: On time, smooth flight

Cons: The small screen in front was annoying. No leg room so uncomfortable.
Cons: Delay before boarding. Boarded and delayed take off. Emergency landing in Baltimore. Talk of busses. Reboarded. Drove the runway in circles. Panic attack. Unboarded followed by the rest of the plane and we then boarded 3 buses that got us to Jersey in 4 hours. I reviewed this once. HORRIBLE.
Pros: They check my bag for free but so did American
Pros: 2nd class flight attendants were amazing they felt bad about the Greg situation . So we call ourselves second class as a joke now .

Pros: Connecting flight cancelled could not on another flight of two days will never fly throw Fort Myers ever again
Cons: Only one flight to Key West a day out of Fort Myers at 5pm who does that
Pros: Same as above.
Cons: Same as above.

Cons: Flight crew didn't seem very friendly
Pros: The plane itself was very clean! We really enjoyed having the tv's. boarding and replaning, was very fast so it was nice!
Cons: Sadly, the crew seemed miserable. Nobody smiled. Especially the male flight attendant. We felt more like a burden than a guest. Sorry, but it was true. I believe it was our first time flying united. No snacks on the flight, just drinks, that's ok though.
Cons: No leg or arm room it's like a Cattle car We are not cattle! Would it kill you to give a few more inches in either direction? NO it would not !

Cons: Lost baggage
Cons: Never gave me the option to select seat.
Pros: The airport was nice and had plenty amenities. Good restaurant choices, places to shop, plenty of places to sit and relax with cell charging stations. Lots to keep you entertained while you have a layover.
Cons: Plane was over crowded.the seats are narrow and uncomfortable. Person behind me was constantly kicking the back. I was in the window seat and the guy next to me had a large athletic physique and was over-flowing into my personal space. On top of that he had a severe case of toxic flatulence.

Cons: without notice, plane made significant shift ..about 70 degrees..... Passengers began to scream. after about 5-10 minutes, pilot announces we were 10 miles away from plane in front of us and got caught in its tail wind. I was never so frightened on an airplane as this flight.

Cons: Flight was delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues. The AC was not working but they had us sit in the plane for an hour in the heat while they tried to fix it. Then finally had us deplane to wait for replacement plane. Not that the employees weren't polite and courteous because they were, but the last time I had a delay like that the airline gave everyone vouchers for $100 off next flight they booked. Your company let us watch TV for free. Hardly comparable!
Pros: The crew was so pleasant and the plane was very clean
