Is American Airlines better than Delta? I’m a Delta Medallion member/frequent flyer. I flew AA tonight for the first time. Spacious seats, decent sized screens, spacious waiting and kitchen area near

They all suck

Definitely an anomaly. I was a Delta person that had to switch to AA. AA makes me feel like human luggage.

That's an anomaly. Currently have plat pro on AA and plat on Delta (just showing you I l fly both regularly depending on client destination). I can assure you that Delta is usually 'better' at all things.

Yes C1. The flight distances were comparable. Can’t speak to the plane models. I should probably start paying attention to those

American Airlines is the bottom of the barrel for me. Old planes, no seat space, terrible customer service

@P2: Detroit to Denver. Last flight out last night. Our scheduled flight experienced mechanical trouble. So they moved us to a different flight. Maybe they pulled a brand new or really old one out of the hangar to replace the defective flight

contd... restrooms. They even sprayed a nice fragrance at the end of the flight. Was it a nice anomaly or is AA just slightly better than Delta?

Were the flight distances and plane models comparable?

AA is good if you have too EP status. Delta is better for anything lower. Otherwise, it depends on who has a hub where you live

AA is the worst! Shit planes, no space, boarding process is a wreck and if you don’t have status, it’s always a fight to get overhead bin space. I miss Delta!

AA is good once you have status. But it takes Exec Plat to consistently get upgrades. If you’re Gold on Delta you can Status match to Plat on AA and higher could potentially match to Plat Pro or Exec Plat

Delta>American>United

Thanks a bunch for the clarification 🐠. Appreciate all the responses. I’ll stick with Delta

OP, what was the route? Some of the legacy AA planes are actually pretty nice, but they’re undergoing a harmonization effort and will have cramped slimline seats with no video on the vast majority of their narrow-bodied domestic fleet by the end of 2019.

Interesting - didn’t think they had a direct flight between DTW/DEN. Mechanical delay isn’t surprising, but glad you (relatively speaking) enjoyed the hard product... though, sadly, even that rarity won’t last
