Flight Review

Mar 11, 2020

Seats are incredibly small and uncomfortable; moving to empty seat not permitted

Mar 7, 2020

I was happy with the safe, punctual flight.

Mar 4, 2020

Very good legroom and seat size.

Mar 3, 2020

Someone wore heavy cologne on the flight and I was quite nauseous

Mar 2, 2020

Easy flight

Feb 29, 2020

Bad weather created many different delays that the airlines had no control over. The flight, crew and staff were wonderful, but the weather caused in total 4 hours delay. Luckily my connecting flight was also delayed and I was able to catch it. Staff at MIA was pretty poor, staff at EWR was great and very helpful.

Feb 29, 2020

No hassels & arrived ahead of schedule

Feb 26, 2020

I was injured and had upgraded our seats for additional leg room. These were not afforded to me and I had to settle for a seat that was not comfortable. The flight attendants were all ver sweet on all flights

Feb 25, 2020

I said I would never use American Air lines again because they stole my ipad 2 years ago, nothing was missing this time

Feb 25, 2020

Heavy woman in seat next to me really encroached on my space. I did not say anything. Arm rest needed to be in up position for her. Perhaps a few larger seats added to plane for such persons.

Feb 21, 2020

I had a wonderful experience with my roundtrip flights. You staff members are wonderful and I prefer Delta over other airlines that fly out of Albany NY

Feb 18, 2020

Everything was fine

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Albany

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport cafes and less time at the security checkpoint on your way to Albany, follow these helpful tips:

  • Security staff will expect to see your travel ID and boarding pass as part of their checks. Tuck them away in an accessible place, so they're ready for inspection.
  • It's important to know that metal belt buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you have one on, you may be instructed to place it in a tray before continuing.
  • Laptops, tablets and other electronic devices must be placed in a tray to be X-rayed.
  • When you get to the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to put all liquids, gels and creams in a separate bin for inspection. Make sure they're all in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Consider the type of footwear you want to travel in. Slippers are awesome because they're super easy to take off when you're at the security checkpoint. Try wearing some on your next journey!
  • Pocketknives and corkscrews are not permitted on board the aircraft. Put them in your checked luggage to avoid them being confiscated at the airport security checkpoint.
