Flight landed early than stated. What more can I ask for.

Just a standard Delta flight: comfortable, excellent flight attendants. We had a direct flight, seated in Delta Comfort Plus, so it had a lot going for it, nevertheless, it was a good flight…

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding"
Pros: "Professional crew, no fanfare, standard was excellence."
Cons: "Faster flight time in air..."
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Messed up my luggage in Atlanta. Gate said baggage was going to domestic. Ended up in international terminal. Added almost an hour of back and forth between terminals."
Pros: "Security and checking in was quick and easy! Crew members were understanding and accommodating."
Pros: "Good experience"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being on time. Trapped in plane for 2 hours"
Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."
Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but not much room"
Cons: "Couldn’t understand a word the flight attendants said on the intercom system"
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."
Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "Easy and on time and Delta Comfort is always the best. Easy boarding process too!"
Pros: "We eventually got to Atlanta."
Cons: "Delta is flying a lot of commuter planes, which are pretty cramped. We usually fly first class, and the seating is essentially the same as what coach used to be. There's nothing "first class" about it. And of course, the flight was hours late."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Delayed departure due to late crew arrival. Not a huge deal."
Pros: "Zee was our flight attendant and she was absolutely wonderful. Personable, attentive, and she made sure each and every person on the plane was comfortable and happy, going so far as to move solo passengers to empty rows so they could have more space. I wish she could be on every flight I take."
Pros: "Great entertainment system."
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No chicken sandwich."
Pros: "Take off on time, arrived early, pleasant flight attendant"
Cons: "Had to sit on tarmac after arriving early"
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."
Cons: "Customs never to hire more agents to work in the early mornings."
Pros: "On time, and pleasant flight. Flight attendants were first class: very competent."
Cons: "I slept all the way, so can’t say whether anything went wrong with the flight."
Cons: "Not much to read"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and shout out to Brady, he really helped me out of a TIGHT situation :-)"
Cons: "Felt bad for the crew being under pressure as they got off a flight and had to rush to ours....."
Pros: "This was probably the best flight I’ve ever been on. The staff had a great sense of humor, as well as openly honored our military by bumping up an active member to first class."
Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"
Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"
Pros: "We got on the plane and it went to where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "Over all everything specially we got in earlier than expected"
Pros: "Crew member Lori was exceptional. Great detail to safety and customer service!"
Pros: "I got upgraded to comfort + which was great. quick flight, was even early"
Pros: "Fligth were on time"
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Atlanta was 2:30 min Left at 6:10 arrive at 8:30 roughly Tried twice to get to my connection earlier and get 9:30 instead of 12:09 fligth to Daytona Delta was not flexible to allow me to book saying i did not have 55 min in between fligth which i had than lear n it will cost $75.00 to change the fligth - What? Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"
Pros: "Great flight ... food better than average, but movie selections were terrible"
Cons: "Movies bad selection."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 2+ hours, Delta (running the flight for westjet) sent 1 email about the flight being delayed to 4:45 which was inconsistent with the gate signage and agent who said 3:45, flight ended up leaving at 5:45PM. No reasons were provided beyond the incoming flight from LGA hadn't come in. Why hadn't it come in? When could we expect to leave YUL? No answers."
Pros: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"
Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Cons: "Seats are very small."
Pros: "I paid only $100 more round trip to DTW from SLC then I would have with other carriers, minus the hassle of connecting flights and paying fees that they don't tell you about up front (like $25 for a carry-on bag, oh and a another $12 per leg for a window seat). My experience, like my previous Delta experiences was absolutely enjoyable. From the quick boarding, super friendly gate agents, and flight crew, to the free on board entertainment, Delta has won me over once again. Oh and did I mention how great it is to board a flight, relax and watch a good movie, take a small nap, and deplane at your destination! Awesome!!"
Pros: "Good pilot. Decent flight attendants. All good."
Cons: "The price."
Pros: "On time and good flight"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The only entertainment option is the mini screen every three rows."
Pros: "Que el avion era de 2 filas conn2 lugares"

Pros: "Free meal on a one hour flight!"
Pros: "The pilot was great st explaining the flint and not where we were."
Cons: "They forgot my gluten free meal and didn’t tell me until I was on the plane. Can we count on you to feed us? Apparently not. How can an airline forget a meal for a passenger? Especially in such a long flight?"
Pros: "technology and movie/entertainment selection. plus drinks were included"
Pros: "Crew and newer aircraft"
Cons: "Food could have been better in business."
Pros: "The flight was cool, i loved not having to get down the airplane in Costa Rica to conitnue to Guatemala."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"
Pros: "Super nice crew! Gave us food even though it was a 50 min flight."

Pros: "Gate agents are superb"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "La tripulación tenía tan buen actitud! Todos eran muy amable. The crew had a very friendly attitude. All were very kind!"
Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"

Pros: "not much, not even close to the service and comfort I am used to flying."
Cons: "Keep planes in working order"
Cons: "Service is awful, they cancelled a flight and they reserved the wrong flight so we couldn't get to the destination. Had to change airline and extend our flight by 9 hours with our baby. Horrrrrrible experience. Staff didn't seem to care. They put everything on their supervisor and she tried to help"
Cons: "After landing, we were waiting on the tarmac for sometime and I needed to use the restroom I was an allowed to do so. It would’ve taken me a short short time. I went to The rear of the plane to use the restroom and was told to get in my seat."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The staff insisted on putting bags underneath seats for a 13 hours flight..."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Leaving Montreal"
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight"
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight"
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Pros: "Westjet team is fast, nice and solve issues in one call. I have had very good experiences with westjet! Thank you!"
Cons: "Today in Montreal during boarding the lady coordinating did not give priority to people with children. We were at leastthree families - we were all upset with the situation. However as I have had very good experiences with west jet I consider this an isolated issue."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment and bag charge."
Cons: "No entertainment on the return flights Yeg/Yul !! Makes for a long flight."
Pros: "Always great services"
Cons: "Our flight took a 2 hours delay because of fueling error."
Cons: "They tried for force us to pay for a different ticket because we had gotten a cheap initial ticket!"
Pros: "Affordable, great service, and easy"
Cons: "The internet and TV service were both broken on the flight. I missed out on much of the work I had to do. I was very disappointed that we were only told just minutes before boarding. I was not prepared to spend 5 hours on a flight with a screaming baby, unable to work or watch tv."
Pros: "The service of the crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No food included just water and Coke."
Pros: "Very smooth flight!"
Cons: "None. All is great!"
Pros: "I love flying in a smaller plane. They are usually not full in the morning and so it gave me a lot of space to relax and enjoy the flight from montreal to toronto. The crew was really nice and smilling and they made sure that my pet and I had everything we needed."
Cons: "The seats are pretty thin and uncomfortable. There is no wifi or television on board."
Cons: "avoid the westjet encore flights. planes are small and noisy. if you sit next to a window it’s impossible to comfortably put both feet on the ground. if you pay for plus seating on an encore flight you’re basically paying to get on and off first. there’s no extra room and would be more fairly priced at $10."
Pros: "The flight comes into Vancouver at a very good time."
Cons: "We were delayed 45 minutes without reason, we asked to have our flights switched as we were nervous of missing our connecting flight and were told we could not switch. While we were waiting on the runway for over an hour I asked our flight attendant to check on the status of our connecting flight and she basically told us to hope for the best and that we would have to deal with it when we arrived in Toronto"
Pros: "The seats were vinyl, not fabric - I prefer vinyl. It feels 'cleaner'."
Cons: "1.I did not like the flight crew announcing how great they (the crew) were at the start of announcements before take-off ---- If you are great, don't tell us, act like it - I found both crew members hardly engaging, one was sullen. 2. PA system was a little hard to understand anyway. Crew member should have put volume up and made sure was loud enough , but just seemed like wanted to use a 'cute' half french/half english accent to speak in. 3. Also this flight 3535 on Dec 21 Mtl- Toronto made me nervous although I fly often. Most nervous I have been because pilot took time to gain altitude after take off, and when landing had to accelerate then decelerate a number of times. Landing was (with 2 km/hr winds i.e. not much wind) almost on one wheel. 4. Food does not have to be so cheap e.g. sweet snack bar? Please bring back an assortment of nuts as they are at least nutritious. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "The 4hour delay on the one hour flight"
Pros: "Fantastic flight!"
Cons: "Being stopped at every connection for screening. No communication about why. Nearly missing the connection due to the screenings. Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."
Pros: "Good service and on time"
Pros: "No stops in US."
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Everything else. Flight was delayed by over an hour, seats are slippery and SO uncomfortable. No food, no entertainment (flight was only an hour)."
Cons: "Snack was very minimal with no selection or option to purchase more."
Pros: "It was a comfortable experience, the flight crew were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The lack of space beneath the seat in front of me can be frustrating, especially when one is required to push their small bag underneath it."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Pros: "- Flight was on time - Friendly crew"
Cons: "- My flight was from Montreal to Seattle with a connection in Calgary but the agent at the check in in Montreal was unable to confirm whether my luggage would be transferred directly to Seattle or if I had to collect it in Calgary and check in again. The crew should know or be able to verify the information in their database or somewhere at the departure not only when I arrive in Calgary! It adds a stress to the customer not knowing. - Flight of 4.30 hours and no free meals. - Impossible to use my hear phones in the plane so I couldn't hear the TV channels. I was also expecting movies and series like in Delta."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped, uncomfortable."
Pros: "The airplane being pretty small, boarding and getting off was fast. No issues or delays either."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. So we reached almost at midnight to Vancouver."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time."
Cons: "This older plane had tiny seats in the seat backs. My phone screen was bigger. Thought we might get a meal on a flight of this length and at this time of day."
Pros: "Nice and professional service."
Cons: "Having to pay for my checked-in bag."
Pros: "Free wine and beer."
Cons: "Our flight for Toronto on Sept. 5 , # WS589 was delayed of about 1 and half hour; so, me and about 20 other passengers missed our connection in Toronto. The crew said that Pearson airport was on a shut down due to severe thunderstorms. But the weather was nice and sunny when we arrived Toronto; in fact my connecting flight ( Hainan airlines HU 7995 had left 20 min. earlier- on time- for Bejing. The crew in Westjet plane told me that all airlines were delayed in Toronto airport due to bad weather , and so that I would not miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Great service, on time, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Could improve the snacks quality."
Pros: "Montreal to Toronto the crew and staff was great and in a good mood and very pleasant"

Pros: "Made it to toronto in time to catch my next flight"
Cons: "Flight was canceled Next flight was delayed 30 mins"
Pros: "Much friendlier than their Canadian competitors. Efficient boarding. Caring crew: One flight attendant gave a passenger part of his own breakfast when she wasn't able to eat her nut-containing snack because a nut allergic passenger was on board. Like the power stations at each seat with USB and AC connections."
Cons: "The coffee was very weak. More like brown water than coffee. Food choices were very limited. The entertainment system, available by App on my ipad, worked, but intermittently."

Flight was delayed 1.5 hrs because the “new pilot” didn’t have his paperwork. There were ZERO food options . Check in process was too long. The app and customer service is marginal at best. I used to love AM , but I was super disappointed with this entire Roundtrip experience.

Pros: "Flight, plane, and crew were great."
Cons: "MEX customs was a nightmare."
Cons: "1h late departure, but we arrived at the expected time. Seats were not very confortable, but everyone had an individual tv. We bought a flight Montreal-Mexico-Panama City, but for some reasons, it was impossible to get boarding passes for the second part of this flight... We had to check-in again in Mexico city."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "smell, old chairs, lights on the entire time"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "A more organized boarding process"
Pros: "Crew was good, food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment, I saw the Wifi stuff when I bought the ticket, but there was no internet connection there. Besides, no movies, no screen... boring."
Cons: "Be in time, over 1 hr delayed."
Pros: "Great flight. The only uncertainty with this level of tickets, is not knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. In general, it is worth what you pay for."
Cons: "Knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. They can save the food!!! It's owfull."
Cons: "Over booked"
Pros: "The lunch was good, the team was nice and the flight went well!"
Pros: "Crew was great and the flight was nice other than the one issue."
Cons: "Lady told me my bag was too big and tried to force me to check it. I’ve flown all over the world with this bag and never had a problem. Also when I walked down to the plane, I just walked right in and the bag fit perfectly and nobody said anything. She needs help with how she handles these things."
Pros: "We were on time"
Cons: "Horrible and first flight was 1h45min late which made me miss my connecting flight. The transit airport was also a horrible experience to spend many endless hours in."
Pros: "the crew was very gentle."
Cons: "I could not get my chair in a more confortable position to sleep, it did not work. Because of that my 6 hour and a half trip was very long and unconfortable and i ended up with pain in my lower back."
Cons: "In the counter people were rude (as always) and the first guy that helped us didnt found us. A lot of time wasting and not much staff to check-in."
Pros: "Luggage was found that was good"
Cons: "Horrible day nobody here to guide you or help you and then charge you an arm and a leg."
Pros: "Flight on time, all personal was very helpful and kind"

Pros: "The crew were great always ver polite and helpful having tv on flight makes people more relax I know I was"
Cons: "Everything was good my complain is about the rude passengers in the plane just cause u pay for a plane ticket it don’t mean it gives them a right to be rude with the crew"
Pros: "Close for connecting and had lots of staff to get you there on time."
Cons: "Food mediocre"
Pros: "The in flight meal was just what we needed and they got us to San Jose safe and sound. No complaints!"
Pros: "The gate agents got me extra legroom in emergency row because i am very tall, at no extra charge. Airplanes were newer, very nice crew, on time."
Cons: "The Mexico City transfer was weird, and inconvenient. You have to retrieve your luggage, go through Mexican immigration, recheck your bags, go through security again, and the layover was over 4 hours. You pay less, but it winds up being a very long, exhausting trip. I will take a US carrier from Quito to San Francisco, Reno or Vegas next time fir this reason alone."
Pros: "Ontime and pleasant"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "The delay when departing, and the attention of the flight attendants. Also very limited kind of beverages."
Pros: "La comodidad la amabilidad de las personas."
Cons: "La comida"
Pros: "The plane/Pilot got us home."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. The plane was old and had the drop down video screens. This was terrible- we couldn’t see the one closest to us, only the one further away. But any words on the further one, we couldn’t read. The staff on the plane were rude and made us seem like we’re a bother and unwelcome. We were scared to ask for anything."
Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."
Pros: "Confortable seats and entertaiment"
Cons: "late boarding"
Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"
Cons: "Gate was changed before bording, gates closed before plane departure time regardless of not all passengers present. Missed the flight and Aeromexico made us pay to grab another flight while it was Aeromexico personel that refused to allow us in even though it was not yet departure time and said plane doors were closed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, both at the airport and in the air. It was nice to have meals served, even on the very short flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport to find that they had overbooked the plane and our family's 4 seats were in jeopardy. We had to wait until they had processed everyone else in line, even though we had gotten there first, because either they were in the "sky priority" line or because maybe they had pre-bought their seat assignments. After a tense 20 minutes of waiting, they closed the flight and let us have our seats. Then, at the gate, they confiscated two of our most important carry on bags and checked them because they said that children are not allowed a carry on item -- despite paying full freight for their seats! It was very nerve-wracking at our arrival destinations as these two items were not padlocked and were the very last to come on the conveyor belt."
Pros: "Attention"
Cons: "Seats are very tight, uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good flight, excelent schedule"
Cons: "Flight Over sold (20 people)."
Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."
Cons: "To start with I paid to check in my suitcase. But I change my mind and decided to have a cary on. when I arrived at the airport I told an agent that I wanted to bring my suitcase as carry-on and she said that it was too large. So I had to wait in line. When I finally fot to the counter the agent and the agent realized I had already paid. She said that I could try take my suitcase under my own responsibility because she thought security would send me back. I was very surprised to hear this because it is a computer case. I did not have any problems and was able to embark. The plane had not bern clean. The pocket underneath my table had a used kleenex and the table of the person seated next to my had coffee spilled. During the 5:50 hrs only once were we offer a drink. Really bad service for an international flight."
Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"
Cons: "Waited from scheduled boarding to when the flight was cancelled- 3 hours and then little help from Aero Mexico to rebook to final destination in a reasonable time. Was promised a full refund of cancelled booking with Aero Mexico and as of 4/17- 0"
Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"
Pros: "I loved this flight. I took 2 other airlines within a few days and this was the best experience. Short check in lines no hidden fees very organized and plane left right on time! Played a good movie and provided headphones and snacks which where pretty good. Great flight!"
Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."
Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a bad mood that night. One of the flight attendants hit my elbow as he was speeding through the aisle, causing me to knock over my drink. He didn't apologize or try to help. The other one"

Don't change gates at the last minute.

5 hours is delays without any resolution.

Because of turbulence we were not served anything unless we asked for it. But flight attendants were very nice and accommodating.

Pros: "The crew was super polite, even with the delay."
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable."
Pros: "After the GSO - PHL flight, I mistakenly boarded a flight to Portland Maine PWM. Why didn’t the gate attendant catch this error?"
Cons: "Attention to detail by both the gate agent and myself."
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"
Pros: "The crew was better than my first leg of my trip. They had manners and were attentive."
Cons: "The food and drink selection"
Cons: "I was asked to move from the front of the plane to the second to last row without a thank you or any kind of appreciation..."
Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"
Pros: "American is our main airline and We never are disappointed"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"
Pros: "Seat upgrade."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and attentive service"
Cons: "Remote terminal which required walking stairs with carry-on bags, and two bus rides to reach the plane. No food other than packaged snacks in first class. No seatback video screen."
Pros: "Great surprise at the end of a long travel day. New plane, great crew."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and spacement between the seats too small and you feel very cramped specially when the person in front of you reclines his seat you can hardly move."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The crew was pleasant. No water served due to turbulence"
Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"
Cons: "5 delays with the flight. Had to Switch to a flight leaving from SFO and pay $60 for an Uber to get to SFO"
Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."
Cons: "Took off late and arrived late. Took15 minutes to taxi to gate"
Cons: "They lost our luggage even though we have 50 minutes between connecting flights."
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Boarding was simple and efficient Seat was better than usual"
Cons: "Dinner was okay, the mid-flight snack was awful and made my wife sick, breakfast was better. Entertainment console crashed four times, first crew member didn’t seem to care (aloof for most of the flight), other attendants seemed marginally more interested. No one checked back to see if the problem was resolved. Flight attendants seem to be in “check the box” mode doing only what was necessary."
Pros: "I like to party. But besides that, I like flying with my instruments and not having to gate check them. Yay!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the way the employees were so friendly! It was not fair. I wanted to be angry and my opportunity was taken from me!"
Pros: "The flight to New York was not full and I was surprised when the representative automatically upgrades me to an even-more seat, which I found great because at 6-feet tall I had a tough time on the way to England being in the right spaces at the rear of the airplane."
Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Cons: "Told me that if I checked my carry on bag at gate, I'd be able to pick bag up from from the gate at the other end. Instead it went to baggage claim with took more than 30 minutes."
Pros: "It's convenient that was next to a laboratory."
Cons: "It's convenient that my seat by a laboratory but since the way to laboratory is narrow the crews kept bumping my seat by the catering carts that kept woke me up while resting..."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Haven't left yet don't leave until today the flight was behind due to maintenance"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "This airline is evil."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "The flight left late and they did not explain why their was a delay. The landing was not smooth. It was a rough landing."
Cons: "My flight was changed from Charlotte to Dallas-Orlando"
Pros: "Terrible porque no pude viajar ayer"
Cons: "The automatic machines wouldn't check me in. The lazy who checked me in manually have me wrong information about my luggage. The affect on the Mexico side have me MORE wrong information about my luggage. Ultimately, my luggage was lost. Still waiting for them to find it."
Cons: "When going to website to link to free entertainment the flight is wifi capable but you must purchase Internet. Not sure why they did not make the move to add free entertainment on a 4+ hour flight."
