Bathrooms are tiny unlike 777 and the seats are not good, i dislike the narrow feel of the feet well and there is noooo storage for shoes or amything else..what fail. And the door thing is a joke.

Cons: "We barely made it through a storm. Super scary. Even the pilot said we "barely made it" over the speaker. I would rather be hours late getting home than feel like my life was possibly gambled with. I have my pilot's license so I am not unfamiliar with having to create an alternate flight plan when inclimate weather strikes. However, this was scary.

Pros: "Flew into bad weather event with thunderstorms, lightning and tornadoes. The flight was relatively turbulence free, flt had only one attendant in the cabin however she was able to serve beverages and snacks asks made sure everyone was comfortable. Can't thank Delta enough for the professionalism of their crew, great service and communication, and for getting us home safely. Thank you!"
Cons: "Made us pink tag carry on bags on flight deck. Had to retrieve bag from baggage claim after flight. My bag landed on the belt completely open, clothes and laptop hanging out bag onto belt, bag was damaged, zipper broken with holes in the fabric, bag was soaking wet! No one at airport able to assist with a damaged bag claim. Very disappointed in the Baton Rouge airport and lack of available staff to handle baggage issue."

Cons: "1. 1.5 hour delay on a 70-degree, sunny day. 2. all of the outlets in the gate area to charge devices during the delay -- and 90% of them didn't work!!!! It's almost better not to design new seating with outlets between seats, when the outlets don't work -- neither did the ones on the walls. People were lined up for the ONE wall outlet that did work."
Pros: "We made it safe."
Cons: "The constant delays. And nothing was done about it. Not even we're sorry. Here's a voucher. Or here's something on us due to the circumstances."
Cons: "Not knowing where our seat was until the very last was disconcerting. My wife and I did not get to sit together"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Movies selection poor and games could be better and touch screen not working properly"
Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."
Pros: "Overall very comfortable was comfortable for a 8 hour plus flight"
Cons: "Extremely long check lines. Security came after the extremely long check in process"
Pros: "Awesome service"
Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There are NO ENTERTAINMENT, and I had two flights that were more than 5 hours each. It was not operated by British, it was actually American Airlines."
Pros: "Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, God food, pleasant flight."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding is terrible at DCA for commuter flights. You get on a bus packed in like sardines and the stand there for 15 minutes."
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Pros: "The flight was early morning so the plane was basically empty. And the flight was short due to short distance and tail winds. Crew is always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane seats are EXTREMELY cramped. We were early but had to sit for 15 minutes waiting for the plane in our spot to leave."
Cons: "No food was served just a drink in a 4 hr night flight. (But AA never serves food so it was kind of expected) Also there was not enough space for the feet, it was small and felt claustrophobic, plus no entertainment."
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "Everything went well. No problems."
Pros: "How the pilot was insistent on the idea of taking off and flying, although we were informed of two system error messages, alledgedly the first for an issue with the AC, the other regarding the drain system. After our return to the gate for the second warning, I deplaned. Didn't feel safe after that!"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 15 min"
Cons: "There was an incident on plane between passenger and flight attendant, where a drink was spilled on me and ruined my dress and shoes."
Pros: "It was great!"
Cons: "How small the plane was. Not much personal space and I am a shorter person."
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful on the plain. There was a bit more room on the next flight than the one from Dayton to Charlotte"
Cons: "The isle was way too narrow People were bumping into me as they went down the isle and I had to carry my cane and carry on bag . I could not understand to pilot when he spoke at all."
Cons: "The "help" when you arrive sent me to the wrong line, missed my original flight. Was rebooked for the next flight with a PHL connection...waited 2.5 hours for that flight and when I go to get my boarding pass I find out the previous agent put me on standby and there was a big chance I couldn't get on that flight. The flight was delayed due to lack of flight attendants 5 whole hours and by then I knew I wouldn't make the connecting flight in PHL bc we were way behind and I STILL didn't know if I was getting on the flight in the first place. When I went to the desk the lady behind the counter saw that there were no more flights leaving PHL to BDL and told me she could get me on something the next day. How upset I was! I sat in that airport from 9:00 am to get told at 5:30pm that I'll have to leave tomorrow. Luckily there was one straight thru flight to BDL but it wasn't leaving until 8:20... Another 3 hour wait..20 min delay and I finally arrive to my destination after midnight. Only to find out my luggage is stuck in PHL which is one of the questions I asked the helper behind the counter when she gave me my new ticket. ("Where will my luggage be?") both agents told me it would arrive to my final destination WITH me. So...now I'm frustrated and will barely sleep until I know that my luggage is here and unbothered. I have too many valuables in that suitcase to lose it. That will ruin my whole trip. Again, the worst airport experience ever!"
