Old plane. Delayed but no apology. Not great
When we checked in at Calgary- there were only 3 people intially. Then, 2 left and only 1 old man was left. He tried to move through the line, but could not clear us fast enough. About 50 people were stuck and not able to get boarding passes or luggage checked. We missed out flight. The scene was chaotic. Then, those of us who missed the flight were not able to get help as he was now trying to get the next people on the SLC flight through. We were so upset. Poorly run.
Baggage delayed even though both the flights were delayed.
Cons: "The exit row 12B kept making a high pitch squealing noise...very unnerving"
Cons: "Get us off plane. Been stuck at gate in plane for over an hour."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Cons: "Food and service. Our flight attendant didn’t seem to want to be there. Sub-par service for first class by a long shot."
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "I wish there was a way to access the delta movies in small planes that don’t have seat back entertainment"
Pros: "Yravelling goes well when workers are competent and organized."
Cons: "Boarding front to back seems counterintuitive. People carrying 2 bags appear more hassled bumping through people to get to their seats further. Ack"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in seat"
Pros: "Skywest flight. No issues. Friendly cabin crew. Short 40 minute flight."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late making me miss my connecting flight and I didn’t receive a refund for the comfort seats I paid for but didn’t get."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very aware and accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing, great flight"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "We all were bused to the plane. And we all had to stow our carry on bags with checked luggage."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. We even arrived a little early in Rochester."
Cons: "LaGuardia Airport was the worst airport I have ever been in. It was so crowded that people were sitting on the floor! The gates are squished together with totally inadequate seating. It was extremely noisy."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival. Was also quite pleased with the food options available during such a long flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding and helpful crew (despite the rain as we walked to the plane)."
Cons: "No entertainment options on board. All Delta planes should have the TV monitors and radio."
Pros: "on time, good food, good films enough space to sleep in economy."
Cons: "the stewardess only went up one side of the plane offering eye shades and when i asked for one she seemed really miffed."
Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was great. The plane was great. I would highly recommend Delta over every other airline for travel within the USA."
Cons: "The airport in Minneapolis is ridiculous. If you get a short lay-over, then hope you did your sprint training. I avoid this airport as much as possible. Had no choice with this flight."
Pros: "Everything went well...on time, quick boarding and free gate check of bag."
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."
Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "Kind bar"
Cons: "Booked my flight and paid to pick my seats. Did not end up getting the seats I booked. Boarding and departing was extremely slow."
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was very smooth and I thought the crew did a great job."
Cons: "I know this is a federal regulation, but I have to mention it as it is part of the boarding process. For the life of me, I can't understand why it is necessary to go through security again after re-entering the country. Understandable that I have to go through customs, but going through security again is ridiculous."
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"
Cons: "Due to weather patterns, we sat on the runway for 3 hours waiting to take off. There was approx. 50+ planes ahead of us. I know this because I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot on his way home. About 2 hours in, there was 30 planes left to take off, and then us. They air traffic control people were only letting off one plane per minute which is what was holding us. THEN after the 3 hours on the runway, our crew timed out and the brought us back to gate saying we were not taking off. At the gate, they informed us the flight was not 'cancelled' but 'delayed' to the following morning. I/m not sure how a 16 hour difference is considered 'delayed', but I digress. All Delta reps had NO idea the time of the new flight the following morning and told us all to just 'keep checking the app'. Now, fortunately for me I live in Brooklyn and could just go home. But what about everyone who was at LGA as a layover? I heard from multiple passengers they had to spend the night in a hotel, that Delta did not pay for. We finally got notice the new flight was scheduled for 9:30AM, which they AGAIN delayed until 11:30AM. Many people did not get the second change, and were already at LGA for the 9:30AM flight. To say Delta's handling of this was poor is an understatement. We knew when we got on that plane the crew was going to time out. Again, I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot who told me to 'get comfy, we're gonna be here awhile' the minute I sat down. Delta should have given us a fresh crew, or had a backup one prepared. I understand the weather is out of there control, and I understand you can't have a tired crew piloting an airplane, but there are other ways to have us take off remotely on schedule."
Pros: "The plane was not very full and I was selected to move be from row 30 to row 16. All seats in that row were empty. That was very nice."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "All went well"
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."
Pros: "Very comfortable for such a quick flight."
Pros: "Flight delayed every 15 mins for hours then finally canceled. Delta did nothing to assist. Spent 12 hrs at JFK and Missed Christmas with family."
Cons: "This flight was significantly delayed while we waited for a late flight attendant to arrive. Delta offered us nothing but sad meaningless apologies. On top of that the PA system at the gate didn't work so finding out news as to what was going on was extremely difficult."
Pros: "i didn't get on the plane"
Cons: "flight was delayed, so i would have missed connection in NYC. Delta agent said she could get me to boston the next day, in the afternoon. i drove my rental car to boston that night, instead of flying"
Cons: "They lost my baggage"
No delays, the wifi on flight didn't work and friendlier staff would be a good start.
Another delayed flight on American. Another missed connection. No gate when we finally landed, sat on the plane for over 30 minutes and we all missed our connecting flights.
Cons: "For the longer leg of my trip, there was no entertainment. No screens at all! No food besides some dry pretzels on a 5 hour flight and the crew was borderline surly. They were running into people with the drink cart, bumping any edge of arm or leg that was in the aisle, not smiling, not pleasant at all."
Pros: "The back crew member was amazing. She really seemed like she cared."
Cons: "Larger seats and larger walkways."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Not much other than lower fare"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to better ensure aisle seats for the people who can't afford to pay for an upgrade. Maybe it's just not a thing."
Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"
Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."
Pros: "Crew was fine but you can’t hear anything they are saying over intercom"
Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "American has had maintenance delay nightmares all week. Including this flight, where we switched gates and still was delayed significantly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"
Cons: "Flight currently delayed 3 hours! No help booking another flight or compensation or way of getting back to NYC in time."
Cons: "Last minute (after partial boarding) they had to switch planes due to a "maintenance issue" which I would think they would have caught earlier."
Pros: "The crew was good given the challenges of a delayed flight"
Cons: "They could have delivered on the most important aspect on-time arrival. I know that a mechanical issue delays such as tires however ongoing maintenance should prevent these delays. Your failure to deliver on your promise impacted my ability to deliver on mine."
Pros: "Left on time. TSA boarding pass."
Cons: "1. Seats uncomfortable- too close together. Causing the person in the middle to lean on me. 2. The seat in front of me reclined into my space leaving me no room to extract my food tray and to cramped to work on my computer. 3. When buying a ticket no assigned seat. Paid 100.00 extra to select my seat and it didn’t allow me to choose anyway. When I went to select my return seat I had two choices- a middle seat or pay an additional 35.00 for a premium seat. 4. Had to pay 140.00 for luggage with no carry on (70.00 each way) 5. Not going to fly American anymore."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Seemed like a tiny bit more leg room, lots of good movie choices."

Cons: "My travel companion and I encountered the most unfriendly and non respondent flight crew of all time."
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "There is not much to like when you over charge for seats and have staff who don’t accomodate for family to sit together or someone with a disability who needs to use the restroom often to sit on an aisle seat."
Cons: "Staff has horrible attitude. Price for seats and luggage is ridiculous."
Cons: "American Airlines had put my luggage on a flight earlier than me and is still NOT FOUND."
Cons: "I was in such pain by the time I left this flight, the seats were horrible."
Pros: "Business class is wonderful"
Cons: "Bathroom floor was full of pee."

Pros: "Flight was punctual and service was good."
Cons: "Gate change"
Cons: "They damage my luggage both of my suitcases broken and the airline doesn't give me an answer and doesn't want to reimburse me the money I paid for the suitcases. Airline good for nothing."

Pros: "Boarding on time and arrived to my destination on time."
Pros: "quick easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Pros: "I survived the flight."
Cons: "Missed connection Uncomfortable Rollercoaster flight"
Pros: "Free entertainment and food. Timely departures and arrivals."
Cons: "Went to Iberia desk to check in only to be told to go to AA desk instead at a different terminal. Directions could be clearer."
Pros: "Great flight & got in early"
Pros: "Easy and safe flight to destination. Not meant to be a 5 star hotel."
Pros: "The seats weren't bad and there was enough space for my carry on and personal bag"
Cons: "It was so hot the entire flight and the overhead air was very low pressure that it didn't even feel it touch my head. The person next to me had very bad odor and was hoping the air would clear it for me but it didn't because the overhead air was so low."
Pros: "I understand that the breakfast cookies are economical, and many people enjoy them, but can we add some variety or switch things up sometime, pleeeeease. My kids love the cookies. thanks Jesse"

Cons: "Delays, attitudes, and fees"

Pros: "Not a good experience so nothing"
Cons: "AA failed to allow me to check in at initial arrival in Grande Prairie airport so I had to rush to get a boarding pass in Calgary where the AA agent told me it was not an AA problem and sent me back to WestJet. WestJet discovered that it was an AA problem and returned me to the AA counter where it was resolved. Then I had to rush to catch the flight and missed any opportunity to have a decent lunch between flights. Then there was no food offered on the AA flight to Dallas."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"
Cons: "The flight movies and entertainment were down the whole flights but only for our seats. Which on an international flight was the pits."
Pros: "Flight in air"
Cons: "Take offs and landings"
Pros: "Flight was very timely (boarding, getting everything ready for take off, & getting to destination & off flight quickly)."
Cons: "Flight attendants in back of plane were rude on several occasions. I'm pregnant & had an almost 2 year old in my lap. I was only given one pretzel & not offered any drink for my son or me. We had 4 people in our row (including my son in my lap), when I let my son walk down the aisle I noticed rows with only 1 person. Flight crew should of asked if someone wanted to move for more space.
