Nothing’s

We paid for preferred seating for extra leg room. On 3of the 4 flights the preferred seating were regular seats with no extra leg room. It was deceitful to advertise those seats at preferred seating. I would not have wasted my money paying extra had I known what I was getting.

Cons: "The exit row 12B kept making a high pitch squealing noise...very unnerving"
Pros: "Funny. Kind. attentive."
Cons: "We read in the Delta onboard magazine about Delta’s commitment to women. Yet Delta coverups a rape by one male employee against a recent immigrant in a Delta vehicle. What say you?"
Pros: "no, not courtesy"
Cons: "select crew based in human and better relation"
Pros: "Great crew, nice plane, awesome entertainment"
Pros: "Delayed, packed, bought a sandwich! Good sandwiches!"

Cons: "The bathrooms smelled every time someone opened the door. Febreeze, please!!"
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Horrible boarding experience. We were not offered a choice of seats when we checked in and had to wait at the gat"
Cons: "Plane left 4 mins early knowing that passengers were on a delayed flight."
Cons: "Can't tell how the flight was because missed connecting flight from LAX to SJC because Westjet from YYZ to LAX had a mechanical issue. They end up replacing a tire which caused a 1.5 hr flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Missed my Easter dinner plans... :("
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late. Then it was freezing in the flight. I let the crew know and it warmed up at the front and back of the plane but it was unbearable in the middle. It took me two hours to warm back up!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Great service from boarding to landing"
Pros: "Myself and my wife were rebooked and arrived home the same day. Albeit 7 hours late."
Cons: "Flight left gate on time, yet departed 1 hr late because deicing took almost 1 hour. There was only one truck working."
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pros: "No surprises. On time. Courteous. I suppose the most amazing thing is their app. It tells you when your bags get on! Also I forgot that I had a knife in my pocket. I ran back to the desk and she went back, found my bag, put the knife in there. Wow. What service. Also I notice that Atlanta is a lot nicer than it use to be. Attendants are more friendly and loading is more organized. Way to go Delta."
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Pros: "It’s become a mediocre airline."
Cons: "Everything."
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: "Delta planes are typically nice and clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."
Pros: "Weather kept them from being able to serve everyone but she did pass around cookies which was a really nice thought!"
Pros: "Quick, safe flight. Very good pilot."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not work at all during the 2.5 hour flight. Was very disappointed."
Pros: "I was given a complimentary upgrade."
Cons: "Flight was moved up from 830am departure to 6am departure with very little notice, and my layover was reduced from almost 2hrs to 30 minutes. Then, my bag was lost. Terrible."
Cons: "Seats diddn't recline - often ignored by flight crew."
Pros: "Please offer headphones to people who do not regularly take them in flights."
Pros: "Smooth and on time boarding,early arrival, comfortable flight."
Pros: "Crew and landing were fantastic"
Pros: "Helpful, and kind"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Super smooth takeoff and landing. Great plane, more legroom than other airlines."
Pros: "Landed 45 minutes early! Allowed me to take an earlier flight Detroit to Boston which made me really happy"
Pros: "The trip was short."
Cons: "I didn't care for my engine only window view. Nor did i like that the crew barely served refreshments (other airlines have zero issues with this on a DTW-MDW or ORD with a larger plane and equal amount of flight stewards). The route was also akin to being on a rough patch of sea for an hour."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "I have broad shoulders and there was a larger gentleman on the window seat. Being in the middle seat made for a very very cramped flight the whole way. Lots of skin to skin arm contact for much of the flight. There was no way to avoid it."
Cons: "Condition of the airplane"
Pros: "I love Delta. The crew members were very safe, courteous, and efficient."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The food was good and the staff was competent and friendly. There was a large choice of inflight entertainment (but the sound was mushy)."
Cons: "Although more comfortable than most, the seats were cramped (for 10 hours). Boarding was delayed 30", but we did not take off for 3 more hours. I really don't know why. It felt like the NYC MTA: poor communications. The boarding process required an avoidable half hour of standing in lines."
Pros: "Got grounded for five hours stuck on the plane."
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
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!"

Delta operated. Missed connecting flight due to single late crew member in dfw. 1.5 h late. Missed work and incurred costs of over $800. Delta failed to hold connecting flight(s) at gate and it actually left EARLY. Fail. Never again.

Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"
Cons: "crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better"
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small"
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Larger meals."
Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Cons: "Delayed!"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"

At 11 pm, we were notified that our 6 am departure would be postponed until 7:28 am. Upon arrival at the terminal, this became 8:30 am. Additional deicing and atc delays, while beyond the control of the crew, had us running like maniacs through the DFW terminal where we made our international connection with literally minutes to spare. The utter incompetence and carelessness of Mesa Airlines almost ruined the beginning of our trip we had planned and booked many months in advance. We will absolutely avoid using them in the future at all cost.

It was a wonderful flight

Chairs not comfortable and wearing mask all the time was horrible

Entertainment is very limited. Location of the gate is not convenient. Passengers must take a shuttle bus. The rest was good.

Cons: "I was scheduled to sit next to my husband but at the last minute, our seats got changed and we were split up, having to both sit next to strangers. Not acceptable during a pandemic when we had our seats booked, confirmed, and checked in."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seating sucked, did I say sucked. Greed never give the customers that pay your bills better comfort and leg room. Greed greed greed. Scumbags"
Pros: "I was cramped being a man of fair size. Which honestly quite made the flight even better."
Cons: "I can't think of a thing the crew could have done better. Top Notch!"
Pros: "Entertainment and air hostess"
Cons: "American Airlines have to improve with their food. Spend more than 500 for ticket and they cannot provide lunch for > 5 hour flight? We had to buy that food as well. They also boarded us too soon and didn't have time to grab the food outside as our time between flight is only 50 mins."
Cons: "Nothing that AA could do better. Both fellow passengers had body odor that was so bothersome. I could not even sleep, not eat because of their smell. Oh well, laugh when we can, right? Oh by the way, the Pilots of both planes I took for this DFW-ATL-DFW flights were awesome. Landings were so smooth, like butter"
Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."
Pros: "Crew, seats, and smoothness of ride."
Cons: "You have to pay for seats to sit with your travel partner."
Pros: "Lovely crew!"
Cons: "The landing was rough!"
Cons: "We are delayed 7.5 hours dues to mechanical issues with our plane and told we would have to wait or book another flight the following day. American Airlines sucks!!!!"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable, The staff were nice, the food was ok."
Cons: "The food could have been better but was ok."
Cons: "Two hour delayed."
Pros: "Service was great in 1st class"
Cons: "The movie Black k Klansman was great but the system had a problem. Not sure if just my seat or the whole digital video system. Every few minutes it would get choppy and unwatchable. I had to rewind and then it would be fine for a while. Like a video buffering problem."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, polite & effective crew, functional aircraft, nice weather"
Cons: "The flight crew from PDX to CLT were not very customer service friendly. I was quite underimpressed."
Cons: "Flight attendants completely unresponsive when overhead space was filled by a lot of backpacks that supposed to go under seats. Also, kept selling alcohol to people who were clearly drunk and were obnoxious and loud the whole trip."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "It was so ht on the aircraft, Almost no aircirculation"
Cons: "Ticket was never issued."
Pros: "It got me here."
Cons: "Apparently codeshare purchases are non upgradable, so my airline status was irrelevant."
Pros: "On time and quick."
Pros: "Our seats were booked by a cruise line and were not together on this flight. When my husband asked, the gate agent was able to seat us in at least the same row."
Pros: "Made it safely."
Cons: "Getting my phone blown up all day about delays on my two flights. Then sitting on the tarmac in the plane while the ground crew moved equipment around. Were they surprised a plane was coming in?"
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew members, they were very nice and smiled despite it being so early. I also enjoyed that they mentioned about the free movie watching option if you have the AA app."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't offer any snacks such as pretzels or cookies. Other than that, it was a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "Wanted more food. Haha!!"
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "CRJ900 is a small plane. no WiFi"
Pros: "Easy to get though security as I was pre check tashav"
Cons: "Having to spend 95 dollars for seat upgrade to be on a exit aisle"
Pros: "Appreciated how the pilot managed to get us to our destination about an hour faster than scheduled. This time the free gogoflight entertainment worked. Was able to watch a couple of movies without any technical problems."
Cons: "Because the flight arrived so early, there were no gates available to dock. As a result, we were in taxi-mode for almost 30 minutes. This pilot tried to do is a favor but ended up frustrating all of us. They didn’t have enough food on the flight."
Cons: "Lost my next flight connection because this flight was not on schedule."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Some glitch said the flight was delayed, when it wasn't. Good thing I checked with the Check In Counter."
Cons: "This was a BA flight on an American Airlines plane. Very small crowded and uncomfortable. My husband is 6'2" and barely fit in the seat."
Pros: "The customer service"
Cons: "Not having a TV available is reflective of the poor rating for entertainment. Better organization with boarding- calling groups 1-6 within a 3 minute span makes for unnecessary commotion that could easily be avoided"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "Overall was great."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the seats were comfortable. I enjoyed the movie selection."
Cons: "My seat was broken (button to recline was stuck)."
Pros: "Liked that one of the flights ha a usb connection to charge my phone"
Cons: "It was slightly more cramped in the seating and it was very warm for the duration of the flight"
Pros: "Crew came round regularly with water and snacks and were very helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and leaving but there was no message from the ground staff telling us why the flight was delayed."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "A value for the money."
Cons: "Again, narrow seats and hard."
Pros: "Quick and able to switch to an earlier flight"
Cons: "Had to pay $75 to change flight"
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."
Pros: "I liked nothing."
Cons: "We boarded an hour early. It was at least 80° on the plane, and then everyone got on. The crew was very rude. They ignored everyone in coach."
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: "All if the gate staff & on board staff that I interacted with were very friendly & efficient."
Cons: "Very tight/small & crowded waiting area."
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Cons: "They changed our gate four times and delayed our flight two hours. Got in after midnight and wasn't able to pick up my rental car."
Cons: "It was a narrow, regional aircraft, so I was squeezed into my row next to a large man. My seat was the first in economy, so I was bumped everytime the beverage cart made the jog in the path from First Class. The flight attendant never apologized."
