Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very courteous"
Cons: "Sitting in first class"
Pros: "Flight was on time out of JFK, and quick and easy to board. We took off on time and landed 30 minutes early. This is was a great trip, and I love Delta."
Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."
Pros: "The pilot did an awesome job of welcoming travelers and keeping them updated on the flight status."
Cons: "I sat almost to the back and there was not enough lunch by the time the crew made it back there so I had to eat breakfast instead of lunch."
Cons: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Check carefully! Our flights were changed and the first was only ten min difference so didn’t think anything of it but when we went to check in they said we would probably miss our connection. The problem was not the time but they changed GATES were really far apart. Was resolved but kind of a hassl"
Pros: "Really nice flight crew who braved the storm to get us home when everyone else was getting cancelled."
Pros: "It is a short flight, no inflight service but we boarded quickly and deplaned the same."
Cons: "Had to wait for some of the flight crew but that isn’t anybodies fault"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Could not get entertainment interface with my tablet to work, especially since I paid extra to do so. Could not access live TV on my seat/chair screen."
Cons: "Crew was rude and made everything seem like a chore."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "The pilots were communicative of why and what the reasons were of delays as far as the landing and getting the plane to the gate."
Cons: "Attendants that offered drinks and snacks offered me coffee or water but didn’t offer a snack. But asked the girl next to me if she would want one. No consistency"
Pros: "I araised safely in New York and all my luggage finally arrived. I suppose that is good but so much else was bad, very bad."
Cons: "The morning of my flight I got a notice the departures time was changed by one hour later but to still arrive at the airport at the same time. So I ended up spending almost four hours at the airport before leaving. Boarding was a mess as "groups" were not called but everyone just rushed the gate in mass and we're let on. Staff were functional but looked and acted surly. It was a functional flight in that I arrived at my destination but it was not managed and I did not feel my business was wanted-only my money."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "Over an hour late wth!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and so was the flight. No entertainment or food on short flights, that should be a N/A"
Pros: "The in-flight movie was very much appreciated."
Pros: "On time, professional boarding, clean comfortable planes, skilled pilots and professional crew. What more could you ask for."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Love the free movies and individual screen, and the new seats are more comfortable"
Cons: "That it wasn’t 1970, with full meals and more leg room"
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twelve hours and was not given any compensation even though i had to stay the night at the airport with no blanket or pillow and no freebies of any sort. The gates kept changing. I got up to move to the correct gate at least four times during the night. The next mornings flight was behind schedule as well. I want compensation for my poor delta experience."
Cons: "Seats diddn't recline - often ignored by flight crew."
Pros: "had connecting flight ready"
Cons: "the plane was 5 hours late, we did not even get free internet of a coffee or a free drink in the waiting room after debarring or in the waiting room connecting was ok, they had boarding passes ready but suitcases took forever to cross customs...getting bags almost an hour"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Cons: "Felt like I was sitting in my neighbors lap!"
Pros: "I called ahead to get a seat assigned. I suffer from minor claustrophobia and the lady at the call center was kind enough to seat me somewhere spacious."
Cons: "Snacks could be better. Although the biscoff cookies are excellent and the crew was on their game making sure we had our snacks. I wish that for a flight as long as NY to MIA, they would offer more of a meal."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."
Cons: "A complimentary sandwich would have been nice for a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"
Cons: "The delay on the runway"
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "Gate agents kept us very informed and provided snacks."
Cons: "2-hour long delay"
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Seating in ecomony class is very tight, restricting, and uncomfortable."
Cons: "The original flight was canceled and a new one substituted - basically they wanted to fly a smaller aircraft (via a different regional carrier) so the flight number changed. PHL did not have the new flight info displayed at the Departures board or on the screen at the gate. Caused a little anxiety."
Pros: "Drinks were passed out twice while everyone was waiting due to flight delay. There was one flight attendant that was awesome. I had asked for coffee due to migraine. I was stuck in the last row, back of the plane & had seen other people with coffee. The flight attendant told me no, I would have to wait for 3 more hours for coffee at breakfast. A smiling face showed up within minutes & asked if I wanted coffee. She told me that when she hears someone else say "no" that she thinks it should always be "yes". She was the African American flight attendant (wish I would have got her name). She brought me coffee, offered tylenol & checked in on me again later."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. Most of the service was fair at best, crew, no smiles, looked irritable. Our flight had been delayed about 4-5 hrs so passengers & staff grumpy. Poor selections on the movies. No charging stations in the seat. This plane was very noisy so I was really glad to have noise cancelling headphones. Very expensive to select seats as it was bought through a non-Delta site to get the desired connections."
Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Pros: "Exit row seat had much more space for legs, very much worth the upcharge for this seat."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was very cool for me. Never used a blanket on an international flight before, and used a blanke on this whole 9 hour flight. Maybe a function of the seat location? Not sure but I was cold."
Cons: "The food is usually very good, this time it was poor to disappointing- dark meat chicken.., tasteless & unhealthy....mushy fruit dessert choices"
Pros: "Polite and friendly service"
Cons: "Not necessary to buy a business class ticket, as all the new planes have standard economy seats in the front as well."
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Cons: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."
Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"
Pros: "Nothing !! Such a bullshit flight ever !!!"
Cons: "No tv fo 14 hr long flight !! Flight delayed for 1 he !! No proper arranged to board .. it was kiosk!! Food quality was worse. No space to seat !! Can’t sleep .. no leg space !! Worst fight till the date !!!"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."

Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Not to be late ,and not to loose my luggege"
Pros: "The crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Once again no vegetarian options."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Cons: "More chose in meals. I flew to and from within a week. All I had were chicken, chicken and chicken for snack too."
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."

Cons: "My first flight was cancelled my return flight was delayed by 5 hours They made me check my carry on even though it was with in the size limit which cost 85 euros and when trying to ask why the staff was extremely rude and not helpful worst flight experience I’ve ever had"
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Cons: "Old plane."
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."

Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Cons: "Delay over an hour"
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work for the whole 8 hours. Seats were uncomfortable. The lights above the seats broken."
Cons: "Boarding more than 15 minutes late. Departure on time, though"
Pros: "No complain about Air France. The service and food are very good. Enjoy it."

Cons: "Chaotic boarding process at CDG and my seat was broken"
