Lost luggage & did not have special meal request even though confirmed
I gate checked my carry on bag. Upon deboarding the luggage was on the top shelf of a cart since we didn't have a jet way. I asked the man standing by the cart if he could help me get it off. He told me that i could get it off myself. I'm 72 yrs old. A little help would of been appreciated.
Everything was great until landed and had to wait 25 minutes to get into our gate! Can’t think of a good excuse for that on such a late, cross-country flight. Plenty of prep time!
Pros: "Very punctual! We arrived on the exactly time as estimated."
Cons: "Very poor snack options"
Pros: "Most humorous crew I have had in a long time. Had regular beverage service, coffee service and a water service!"
Cons: "I can’t think of a thing."
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews. Good stuff."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Pros: "comfort plus really makes a difference"
Cons: "include at least 1 checked back with comfort plus or some kind of discount."
Pros: "Crew was great, comfortable and clean"
Cons: "One plane didn't have TV screens on the backs of the seats, which would have been nice for the 1 hr 45 min flight"
Pros: "The crew did their job. Some attendants were very kind, helpful."
Cons: "Food could be better. Old aircraft, old style seats. Other airlines have improved this very, very much. Delta is lagging behind."
Cons: "Unacceptable delays"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, plane clean, snacks good."
Cons: "Small plane but that’s not really fixable"
Cons: "Waited in the runway and then taxied forever"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "Very short flight. Not much to say"
Cons: "Not much to say"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "I ordered food for my son and they had no record so he had some snacks only during a 10 hour flight. The cabin temperature was freezing, everyone was shivering but despite requests it stayed cold."
Pros: "On time. Great service. Good breakfasr"
Pros: "Original flight delayed by more than 2 hours. Rescheduled and got to Bos with a layover"
Cons: "Delta rescheduled me automatically and I woudl not have found out if I did not call their re-booking center."
Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"
Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."
Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."
Pros: "After flight was cancelled, rebooking was easy and quick on the app."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. flight attendants were grumpy. One of the tightest seats I've flown in economy. No room in overheads so I had to stuff my winter coat between my legs with my backpack under the seat in front of me. Was basically wedged into the seat with my stuff."
Pros: "Delta siempre excelente servicio al cliente."
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."
Pros: "The snack was nice."
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "Online app to watch movies made the trip fly by. Pun intended"
Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was friendly and we were on time."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats too closely packed little leg room"
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Pros: "It was quick and on time relatively smooth flights with little turbulance."
Cons: "Economy seats are too small you literally can't move your elbow without hitting the person next to you. And there was no point at which we weren't all touching legs."

Cons: "The plane and the atention"
Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"
Pros: "Quick, efficient boarding. Good crew. Comfortable seats. On schedule."
Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"
Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"
Pros: "Everything up to departure. Sat in line for almost an hour."
Pros: "The crew, as always, were fantastic."
Cons: "Being delayed for hours because of bad weather 5 days ago is unfathomable. Delta needs to fix the IT scheduling issues causing the frequent delays."
Pros: "Ease in finding another connecting flight get to Miami when our connection was delayed."
Cons: "Time between connection should be 2+ hours"
Pros: "Seats in Delta Comfort section were quite nice. Flight attendants were extremely nice, attentive and helpful. The sandwich I purchased was tasty and a pretty good value for airline/airport food."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving and arriving, but that's the nature of the beast"
Pros: "suppose to be Delta but operated by West Jet"
Pros: "The seat was the most uncomfortable seat I have ever sat in, almost unbearable."
Cons: "No food option on a over 5 hour flight was no good."
Pros: "Gate crew was informative but the news they had to give us was extremely disappointing!!"
Cons: "It would have been better had the flight left for Calgary so we wouldn’t have missed our connection to Cancun and then had to drive to Vancouver and spend the night in a hotel and leave the next day ultimately loosing an entire day of our planned holiday."
Pros: "Westjet is just overall awesome"
Cons: "On both legs the seat was super uncomfortable. Really hard."
Cons: "Premium seat was just coach seat with middle seat blocked. But you're in the first 3 rows."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Gluten free snack that is free"
Pros: "Nope. Just got me to where I was going..."
Cons: "Complimentary food, service (smile a little guys!), comfort."
Pros: "Safety and on time."
Cons: "Grumpy cabin crew."
Pros: "West jet staff helpful on plane accommodating my husbands eed for more space."
Cons: "Our seats were pre booked by west jet in a window and center seat my husband is 6’5 and needs to have an aisle seat. We were charged to change these."
Cons: "No entertainment service."
Cons: "no refund at all worst outcome"
Pros: "Had a fantastic experience on my first round trip with WestJet. Very satisfied, would definitely fly them again. I also liked how we were able to clear Customers BEFORE we departed from YVR; made the arrival that much smoother when we landed at SFO"
Pros: "I did not like being told flight duration by ground crew and pilot that was wrong. They said it will board at x hour and flight Mie is 4 hrs 20minutes. That makes one think departure plus flight time equals arrival. NO ONE MENTIONED OVE 1 hour taxi time. Getting in four hours late, BTW the rain delay was not really accurate. There was no rain until after we were due to depart! Not enough fuel as loaded so after circling the had to land inYYZ ZTO REFUEL. Seats were uncomfortable, with hard spots like springs that did not give.I did not like being told flight duration by ground crew and pilot that was wrong.

Cons: "Plane seemed older and less leg room for a 6’4” guy. No TVs or monitors to track flight info."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "I think for a flight of that duration a light meal should be served."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."
Pros: "Smooth flight, great service delivered by the flight attendants"
Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Temperature on plane was way too hot"
Cons: "Woman in seat beside should have taken 2 seats"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Did not purchase food on the plane"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly. They offered to check bags for free at the gate which is awesome because I didn’t have to worry about finding space in the overhead bins when boarding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but it was due to weather, so it is really out of westjets hands."
Pros: "The Wet jet staff were very accommodating and lovely. The on board staff and on ground staff did their best to be very accommodating during very problematic weather issues related to Toronto."
Cons: "We were given wheels up time twice due to delays in Toronto for freezing rain. I ended up changing my flight to a direct from Calgary to London. The amount of time spent in the airport was definitely a negative."
Pros: "Honesty when informing us on our flight delay."
Pros: "Cancelled the flight and was utter chaos with no direction what so ever."
Cons: "Staff would not communicate with the passenger's."
Pros: "Got away a little late (full flight and de-icing) but still managed to get in to Phoenix well ahead of the scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "Ground staff was very good about keeping us informed."
Cons: "Unfortunate that plane was late arriving - weather problems I expect."
Pros: "One flight attendant"
Cons: "Everything. I never right reviews but I fly everywhere and this was the worst experience ever. Delayed flights and bad instructions. Really horrible customer service"
Cons: "It was late. They were waiting on a flight from Toronto so we could board. We board the plan and sat for what seemed like a very long time. We were not even offered a glass of water on the flight."
Cons: "everything was excellent especial flight pilot wonderful keeping good information about landing .... I was very happy I Will use back again"
Pros: "The WestJet staff, from gate check in to the flight crew, were excellent."
Cons: "The fact that people with pets board first is ridiculous enough to keep me from choosing WJ as my first option. They boarded before seniors and children. What has happened to our crazy world that pets are more important than people."
Pros: "I am mute and the staff did a good job of understanding that and accommodating the way I communicate. (still wish more staff knew American Sign Language; that remains the best flight ever)"
Cons: "Late boarding and then late departure After landing, baggage delayed as well"
Pros: "The Crew was excelent, WestJet has the best crew, very courteous and helpful unlike disgruntal AA crew. They also have the best price deals available. I highly recommend this airlines. Thanks"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you buy one of their tablets. Unerstandable given the type of fleets they use."
Cons: "We were delayed by roughly two hours, sat on the tarmac with no internet or other entertainment, services etc. This made it difficult as I was looking to get home on time and complete work in the air."
Pros: "The staff was generally very attentive, friendly and professional"
Cons: "I didn't have any negative experiences."
Pros: "All the crew"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late and we missed our connection. NOT happy."
Pros: "Caring and friendly flight crew Enough legroom Cared to give instructions while travelling with the baby Generous with drinks and snacks Offered to carry luggage Followed up couple of times to see if we needed any thing"
Pros: "Though there was lots of air turbulence the Crew added humour in executing their duties which made the trip cautious, calm and added comfortable."
Pros: "Great atmosphere... entertaining staff, very pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "The staff were very kind while still being efficient. It was a pleasant and smooth flight."
Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
The food was ice cold and poorly selected. Staff was pleasant as usual
Cons: "Some of the Crew members were not covering their nose with their face masks"
Cons: "The cabin was hot for the whole flight"
Cons: "We sat in boarding in about 90-100 degree heat for over an hour. Everyone is drenched in sweat and should have never boarded."
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick and on time. Transfer in Phoenix was no problem. Luggage arrived OK."
Cons: "Seating is too small and too close to next rows. Unhappy with having to pay for seat assignments and checked bag while watching gate agents refuse to enforce overhead bag size limits."
Cons: "Small plane, forced to valet checkin carry on luggage, no drinks or snacks :/"
Pros: "After the initial delay, the female desk agent got us on another connecting flight without a problem. Second flights attendant was also great."
Cons: "They boarded the plane, only to tell us they had to de-ice, which is understandable. However, after waiting 20 min for the de-icing that never came, they made us get back off the plane because of mechanical issues. The captain/pilot was rude to the woman working the desk over the radio, to the point where she had to leave the desk and go speak to him in person (she knew we could hear everything.) That conversation is also how the whole line of people was informed that then knew about this mechanical issue since the night before, and chose not to fix it before boarding all of us. After getting to Philadelphia later than expected, we were forced to pay for hotel food that was horrible and overpriced. Only to then have our plane be delayed AGAIN because of mechanical issues, again the pilot not giving much information to the attendant she was faced by a room of 40 angry people and had no answers. The departure time slowly crawled out longer, and the only reason I knew was because of having the American app. Information/communication on all ends was poor. I usually fly Allegiant, which is notoriously “cheap,” and I’ve never had an experience like this. Happy my boyfriend has flown with American before and knew to give us an extra day so we didn’t miss the wedding we paid $800 in airline tickets to attend. Just disappointed."
Pros: "Everything was on-time and the crew was decently nice."
Cons: "There wasn't food, but that's to be expected on a short flight."
Pros: "Routine flight. No problems noted."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "The flight was good. Takeoff and landing were great. Service in flight great."
Cons: "The online safety show didn’t work. They started it several times, then did it in Edson. The overhead reading lights flashed on and off periodically making me a bit concerned about the electricals. Our main piece of luggage was sent on a different flight. It took us over an hour to locate that had happened. We waited at the distribution point. We got one Piecebut not the other. After all we’re taken from the belt we went in search and found it."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Pros: "The crew member was great."
Pros: "the gate attendant was very nice as my husband was stuck in security line (I have Pre check) He barely made it, but the guy never made me feel uncomfortable or rushed. He was kind, calm and reassuring."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed to have a chip on her shoulder from the moment we stepped on the flight. I had a broken foot and it was difficult for me to fit my boot and personal item under the seat. Rather than assisting me, she barked commands and quickly walked away as I attempted to address the situation. - poor attitude - failed to ask if I wanted a biscuit but simply slapped one down on my tray table (I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE) - American really needs to catch up with the other airlines and offer a GF option to those of us who have immune disorders. - no WiFi"
Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The staff wouldn't except my registration for my support animal!!"
Pros: "PHX. This is the airport we flew out of. That’s it. I mean, come on. The airport has nothing to do with it. That’s how bad."
Cons: "Plane got delayed because of a malfunction. We were on the ground for about 1 hour extra. And pretty much everything else about the flight sucked."
Pros: "The complementary beverage was a welcomed surprise!"
Pros: "The crew was lovely. Really nice, and did a wonderful job with the cart service."
Cons: "We ended up being deleyed about 30 minutes, in damp weather. It's not like it was snowing. Not sure why it took so long. B/c of baggage charges now everyone brings a carry on. This seems to slow the process of boarding as know passengers are asked multiple times to check baggage (for free, which is the one nice thing) before boarding b/c the overheads will be too full. Group 6 which I was in seemed like it was just the rest of the plane. Super busy, took me forever to get to my seat all the way in the back. Why don't airlines reverse board? People sitting in the back should board first. I feel like this would save so much time."
Pros: "Timely upgrade. Great service."
Pros: "Nothing to like. If I could give them 0 stars I would"
Cons: "Tight connection from our previous flight yet the counter folks were rude and rushed us. My daughter is obviously 7 months pregnant. Because our connecting flight left milwaukee over an hour late, we had no time to even grab a sandwich, no problem we will buy food on the plane. Wrong! The food is was gone so quickly that by the time they got to us, they were out of everything. Oh did I mention we also had 3 children ages 2, 7, and 9. Oh yes and the entertainment? Small screens mounted on the ceiling of the plane. How about updating your equipment?? Plane was old. No USB to charge your phone and stream from their App. Terrible. We own a 2nd home in Maui and travel there twice per year. Looking at other options."
Pros: "3:00 flight to Boston left at 2:59 and only took 42 minutes"
Cons: "Gate not ready so we had to wait 15 minutes on tarmac"
Cons: "I really did not like that I was unaware why I could not check in on my phone and then I get to the airport and the Alaska desk is closed. My phone just says the plane is sky west, me and the other workers at the airport had no idea what this meant. Very frustrating experience trying to check in, finally walker talkie a guy that new it was American. Frustrating I thought I would miss my flight, why not clearly state it's not an Alaska flight."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome. Also, cross country flight but no in flight entertainment. Arrived early in PHL and American would not let me move up to an earlier PHL-SFO flight since it was a code share booked with BA. Should not be my fault as when booking it indicated all four of my flights were with BA. Once booked it indicated the return flights were code share with AA. American should have allowed me on the earlier flight. That would have opened a seat on the scheduled flight which had people waiting on standby."
Pros: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."
Cons: "No entertainment monitor"
Pros: "What a great plane with a great crew. Truly an enjoyable flight. And the tailwind got us in quite a bit early!"
Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"
Cons: "The tsa in chicago was very unorganized. The tsa workers were extremely rude."
Cons: "delay, then no sandwiches available for purchase onboard during a 3-hr evening flight"
Cons: "Rude staff, they changed our flight 2 times and did not offer a drink or food"
Pros: "The economy seats were relatively spacious and had a full TV menu and outlet to charge devices."
Cons: "For a red eye they could perhaps ask people to turn off their lights, but it doesn't matter."
Pros: "Captain did his best to make up time"
Cons: "Flight was initially delayed an hour, then bumped to 30 minutes late."
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."
Cons: "Will never fly American again"
Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "Crew came by once with drinks, never came back through with food/snacks. Never came through with water, as they usually do later in this flight. They spent most of the time chatting in the galley."
Pros: "Movies and on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crazy uncontrolled child in row across from us."
Pros: "The crew was very apologetic"
Cons: "The fact that we were an hour and 45 minutes late leaving. I know they say weather was the cause and not their control, but every time...yes, every time I fly American there's a delay. Every time I've flown United I arrive early."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"
Pros: "Great Workers, and Super nice staff."
Pros: "Taking off and landing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. Seating was cramped."
Cons: "Turbulence was horrible That there is no internet"
Pros: "Went business class and was truly spoiled. Did an evening flight. The seat laid down to a flat bed. Boses headsets, facial refresher packages were provided. The food was wonderful and the wine was above average. A must experience!"
Cons: "The lady at baggage check-in was rude and persistent on not letting me board due to a slight fold in my passport. Other coworkers did not agree, and allowed me to proceed. She also spent 20 minutes in back searching for information while I waited and the line filled up. My luggage was also lost (the last to handle the luggage was this lady) and I needed to retrieve it 3 hours after my flight arrived."
