Cons: "Would always love more room in comfort class."
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("

Pros: "The leg room in comfort+ was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like how the cabin temperature was freezing cold. My wife and I were wearing long pants and sweaters and were still freezing. We asked the flight attendants twice for blankets and each time they said no. I know they had extra blankets but for some reason they did not give us one. I thought that sitting in comfort+ they'd at least give us the comfort of a blanket but I guess not... Oh well."

Cons: "WELL,ALL TV SCRENS ON THE RIGHT SIDE WASN'T WORKING,BUT NOT A BIG DEAL..."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"

Cons: "WiFi awful. Useless."
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Pros: "The entertainment unit allowed me to watch the Denver Broncos game live which helped lessen the delayed departure and uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating....too crowded!! We had a delayed departure by 30-40 minutes because of a computer download issue. Too many folks carrying carry-ons delayed boarding. I wish folks were not encouraged to go that route but to check baggage. This time of year gets even tougher with folks carrying Christmas presents and over sized personal items. Ugh. Not fun to travel this time of year."
Cons: "The male flight attendant my section was very unpleasant to the elderly passengers in my area and just left me very uneasy about the flight"
Cons: "The plane bathroom was old and junky"
Pros: "Free lunch and free entertainment, who could ask for anything more."
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were incredible the flight was great the movies for good great for our flight"
Cons: "No power outlets, back of the plane is really loud, overhead bins suck"
Cons: "The seats are very small even for a petite person."
Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"
Pros: "The delta connection flight waited for our flight so we were able to make our cruise :-)"
Cons: "The delay in the beginnning caused a bit of anxiety that we might miss our connecting flight which could've resulted in a missed cruise"
Cons: "Out of all the airlines I have flown, this was quite disorganized in my opinion. The fact that I was not able to select a seat, nor did I have one assigned to me until prior to an hour before boarding, gave me a bit of anxiety. I don't think it's fair to take away this option to those that get the "cheap, standard" tickets."
Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Pros: "The bathrooms were incredible dirty. I take longhaul flys very often and Delta definitely has the dirtiest I've seen! Bathrooms were very dirt on both flys (from and back to Rio)."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "Good movie selection, nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible food, no veg options, no leg room, seats barely recline"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats were mostly comfortable and having the movies on the headrest is a wonderful idea!"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and some of us had to check our bags but atleast it was free of charge. They should work on that."
Pros: "Service was ok food also crew was friendly"
Cons: "Check in bags and carry on policy and space on airplane is stupid"
Pros: "Nice snacks for such a short trip...most airlines have abandoned this for short trips. Clean and spacious cabin"
Cons: "Freezing cold in the cabin"
Pros: "Good Comfort+ seat, but needs a bit more recline - especially on a 9+ hour flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Glad I have the comfort+ as the other seats have minimal leg room. Bathrooms could use a refresh."
Cons: "The "Delta Comfort" seats were not comfortable: the armrest didn't raise, so the seats were narrow. The handle of our suitcase got broken."
Pros: "Easy boarding, good wifi."
Cons: "Two hour mechanical delay, seemed like they waited forever for paperwork. Then rough weather, so bouncing all over. And on top of it, no peanuts."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped. The seat was too small for an international flight."
Pros: "Delta used to be such a good quality airline, but lately, the fact that you have to pay for all checked luggage, small overhead compartments, and the over-selling of seats makes it feel cheap and less stable. I think the boarding process should start with people in the back of the airplane and fill the plane back to front. Boarding would be more efficient."
Cons: "No screens, poor WiFi connection and an hour late for mechanical issues. Things happen but waiting on a mechanic for almost the entire time to get there and fix it in 5 minutes isn’t acceptable."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES DURING A PANDEMIC. They were not keeping folks distanced from each other, they did not make sure that all the passengers had masks (I understand that people might take them off in flight briefly to drink etc but there were people that walked right on without masks on at all) The flight was FULL. They did a full drink/snack down the aisle thing ensuring that everyone packed into that small space would all be taking off their masks at the same time (if they still had it on in the first place). I did not feel safe at all."
Pros: "The staff at seatac airport were condescending and not helpful...traveling with a service dog and made to pay the pet fee and talked about me where I can over hearnthen in a manner that embarassed me"
Cons: "Either less stingybwith Basic Economy or take one less chance to repeat that it is basic."
Cons: "Flight was late, so we were late for our connecting flight. We made it but our luggage didn’t. Now we are on vacation with non of our stuff. Also, it wouldn’t allow me to check in on line, so we were in one of the latest boarding groups."
Cons: "AA needs to be more prepared than delaying"
Cons: "Prior to boarding, a gate attendant talked to the passengers in a VERY condescending way with regard to their carry on luggage. The original plane had mechanical problems, identified after half the passengers had already boarded. It was stressful enough without this person raising her voice and talking to us as though we were children."
Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."
Pros: "That I arrived safely"
Cons: "Seats could be bigger after all you get charge for a trip, they could also have more flights and stop cramping up the place then there’s no overhead space. Perfect example of Corporate greed"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "No changes"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, flight was overbooked, and WiFi wasn't working on the plane, so no entertainment at all, as the plane had no screens and we were supposed to use our own devices."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "Paid extra for free booze, but they didn’t serve booze, except to first class of course. Saying the flight was so quick, they weren’t even getting it out."
Cons: "Luggage lost never return"
Cons: "Has been sitting in hot airplane on runway for over an hour with no reasonable updates when we finally get out"
Pros: "Everything was just fine!"
Cons: "The only issue is that my entertainment screen kept in malfunctioning which was a bit tiring throughout the flight n"
Cons: "on a 5+ hour flight, that was diverted back to the originating airport due to a passenger who had extreme DTs from excessive drinking the night before, and made the flight return, American offered NO compensation AND the aircraft was so old, there were NO back seat monitors NOR any means to charge our electrical devices!!!"
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, plane was old and dirty in need of maintenance. We had Hard landing and had to unboard onto a people mover. Thankful it was a short flight."
Pros: "In flight movies were free."
Cons: "Poor customer service in Spain. Poor boarding procedures. You have to pay for advance seating, even 24 hours in advance. That should not be the case for an international long flight. Very poor food. My friend and I could not sit together on a nine hour flight."
Pros: "AA is always on time! Love the premium economy!"
Cons: "Poor service by air hostess in the flight. Didn’t give the right food. Ignored when I asked for orange juice."
Pros: "The crew on both legs were attentive, especially in helping people with connections deplane in Dallas. Boarding was easy. Checking one suitcase for free was good."
Cons: "the first leg of the flight was delayed. The information about when it would leave kept changing at the gate. I would have appreciated some extra food due to the delay... I was unable to get food in Dallas, which my scheduled layover time would have allowed."
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"
Pros: "Comfort and crew"
Pros: "The staff tried all they could to move things along"
Cons: "The congestion at the gate, and the staff’s frustration dealing with the people who weren’t listening caused some of the problems. This plane took about twice as long as it should have to get everyone into their seats. I don’t know why. Maybe it was a lot of people who’ve never flown before. The rollaboard bags always are a problem. There was plenty of room in the overheads."
Pros: "They refunded my ticket (although I spent over $65 on cabs to and from the airport)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost two hours - I knew I was going to miss my connection before I even left my airport. They told me they could not put my family and myself in a hotel and that we would need to take another flight the next day that had ANOTHER layover."
Pros: "The complementary wine was nice. The raspberry sponge cake was nice. Nice options for entertainment."
Cons: "No one in the entire airport knew what flight I was talking about when I told them it was Iberia + flight number. People were saying I must have the wrong airport. I almost missed my flight because of this. Everything was through American airlines. It would have been nice to know this going in. Also it was tough doing transfers because once again, none of the departure screens refer to "Iberia flights." It was also tough to check-in. Instructions were not clear in terms of the booking number to use. The Iberia app had a lot of usability problems. The seats are too cramped. I'd have to take out a loan to be able to afford business class or 1st class. It's absolutely horrible for everyone in coach. Especially for long flights as this one. The food was subpar, but that is to be expected in my opinion. Would have been nice to offer complementary headphones. I wasn't able to utilize the entertainment because my headphones are blue tooth. Upon arrival, we had to sit on the tarmac for 20 minutes because there was another airplane in our spot."
Cons: "Almost did not make it on the dieses flight because totally crowded at security check point."
Pros: "- Got to the destination early."
Cons: "- time it took to get off the plane. - time it took for baggage to come out. - being forced to check in my carry on bag that had fragile items."
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."
Pros: "Flights on time and entire flight was a good experience for my 18 years old son to a first flight on his own."
Cons: "Maybe a better food choices"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "nothing since I didnt fly finnair"
Cons: "I did not like anything since both flight to and from was with airlines I actively decided i didnt want to fly with"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "There was nowhere to stow my purse and things i wanted to use during flight near me, my luggage got lost"
Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."
Pros: "Employees were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I think every CEO of a company should be forced to eat their food. It was horrible. A fresh sandwich would be so much better (with add your own may/mustard) The air freshener from the bathroom was so strong that I was nauseous the whole flight. We were at least 8-10 rows away from the restroom. It sprayed about every 20 minutes. My tv screen didn't work. Made it a long flight. No one else around me had that problem"
Pros: "flight personal were very nice"
Cons: "Seat broken reading light did not work 15 total hours in the air and 7 of them the movie system did not work Paid for upgraded seat and did not get one - got moved to a standard seat."
Cons: "Six hours of delay on the outward trip; five hours delay on the return trip. Don't count on American to get you to your destination when it says it will."
Pros: "Boarding was impossible! The line was longer than the jet bridge itself and we had to wait after being called for a 1/2 hour."
Cons: "The 20 minute wait before we could dock at the gate An annoying air vent making an intermittent noise... Something broken obviously"
Pros: "-friendly staff -clean plane (inside) -smooth landings departure/return -first snack and beverage included -fast flight -confident pilots"
Cons: "-overhead crowded (luggage) -ac didn't really work well on the return. Was hot the whole ride. Started blowing cold air when landed. -paying extra for picking seat not worth it."
Pros: "Flight was one time."
Cons: "Internal America Airlines connection was delayed so my luggage never made it on to my international flight and then it took 2days for them to get it sent over!"
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Pros: "Stewardesses tried to make up for disastrous management mistakes. One customer service rep was helpful when Kiosk refused to give me boarding pass or seat assignment or pay for baggage check--ALL USING MY AMERICAN AIRLINES ADVANTAGE MASTERCARD!"
Cons: "Change of airports from EWR-Oak to JFK/SFO after I had printed boarding passes. Got call from AA but when I picked up, no one was on the line. Equipment prob, they said. I think it was two half full planes and they screwed the EWR passengers. Manhattan was in gridlock because of UN session. I discovered change when I arrived to check luggage curbside at EWR. 3 hours of stop and go traffic to get there. See other box re kiosk problems. Boarding pass didn't have my TSA FTN so had to go back. Could not check luggage curbside. Got seat in last row when I noticed boarding pass had no seat assignment. They lost my luggage at SFO. There's more, but..."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Cons: "No in flight movie"
Pros: "not beat up"
Cons: "people trying to get extra carry on on"
