When we landed, we had to wait for everyone to get off the plane to be able to go back to those bins. And someone had already exited the plane with my husband’s suitcase. Their suitcase was left. We spent an hour with Suitcase Services, but could not find out who took my husband’s suitcase. (No ID inside theirs) I recommend that you board lower numbered rows first so that people in the back rows don’t take the front bins!"

The pilots did an excellent job of keeping us updated, kept things as smooth as possible with the bad weather and we had plenty of movies and games to choose"
Cons: "I was charged an extra $100 because my bag was 10lbs overweight. Where is this crazy fee communicated on their website? And why does it have to be so much? I didn't have a way to weigh our bag before we left. I had no idea it was so heavy - ridiculous price."

Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."

Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Cons: "Bought a brand new suitcase and Delta staff broke one of the wheels!"

Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "I like that Delta is efficient and the service is consistent. I pick Delta because I know what I’m going to get . I like that I can choose the entertainment I want and that everything is at my fingertips including flight info, food and beverage options, etc. it’s relatively comfortable but it’s not near the level of Virgin America or JetBlue."
Cons: "I’m not sure if it is due to LAX construction but it is chaotic at the airport. It is super confusing where you need to go, drop bags, etc. the weird part is Check in was in terminal 3 and gate at terminal 2. That is a long walk back and forth. There is probably a more efficient way of doing this. Besides that, they need to do a better job communicating that seats are changing and not Reggy before boarding. Though I can understand it can get crazy because people will panic but it’s not great heading up to enter in not knowing if you are sitting in window when you picked it for a reason. Otherwise, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The boarding process doesn't make sense. My seat assignment was changed for no reason, and I didn't have a say in it. I was put further back on the plane. Not happy about that."
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Cons: "Staff not attentive to customer needs. I asked for a blanket and the stewardess never came back to me."

Cons: "There Was No Entertainment For A Almost 2 Hr Flight."
Pros: "Seemed to have more leg room than average. Generally fine. I got to my destination without incident, and that is the most important thing! But flying today is awful. Uncomfortable, unpleasant, stressful, etc., all so the airlines (and their CEOs) can make millions."
Cons: "Crew was "all business" -- not many smiles. They offered the usually .5 ounce of pretzels or two cookies. Passengers routinely asked "can I have both?" and the answer was routinely: no. Really? My $300+ ticket isn't worth pretzels AND two cookies? Seems silly. And, you know that have BOXES of these free snacks."
Pros: "Honestly I enjoyed every little moment. I haven't traveled to Atlanta in 9 years and let's say traveling with AA is great. Starting from the check-in up until baggage claim in atl. Everything was speedy! I'm so happy that I went with AA I had a spectacular arrival."

Cons: "Did not actually get a Polaris type cabin layout. The plane had not yet been converted."
Pros: "Everything. It was a great flight"
Cons: "I had to check my bag at the desk which I had not anticipated. When I checked in at the kiosk I was told I could only take a personal item - no carry-in size bag - because of my ticket classification. Very disappointed to have to spend $30 I did not plan on."

Pros: "Nice new interior"
Cons: "3hour weather delay!"
Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion.

Pros: "Free movies. Comfortable seats"

Pros: "The overall flight and crew was great no complaints"

Pros: "The crew was great. In a good mood and accommodated my requests. (For complimentary water and a trading card to remember my trip)"
Cons: "Seat was awfully uncomfortable. I’m only a slim built 5’9” woman and my knees were indenting the next seatback. And the aisle was too busy for me but that could have been fixed with paying for a window. I do not recommend flying in these economy seats for any longer than 2.5 hours."
