Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Extremely frustrated. Upon booking my ticket, I was told it wouldn’t be a full flight. At no point did u receive any information alerting me that it was going to be a full flight. I was extremely uncomfortable due to COVID."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Good entertainment. Didn’t bother me too much."
Cons: "Better good. More comfortable seats"
Pros: "My flight got delayed twice. Had to get rebooked."
Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"
Cons: "Great crew and flight! Cheers!"
Pros: "Short lines"
Cons: "Seating arrangements"
Cons: "Had to check my bag yet others brought on two bin sized pieces. Had to get seat assignment at the gate and rep was rather abrupt with instructions. Smell of fuel in the cabin. In last row which was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."
Cons: "My wife and I couldn't sit together regarless of how much money we wished to spend on reserving seats."
Cons: "Food is always bad."
Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"
Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"
Cons: "Contacting me before rebooking would have saved me $400"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."
Pros: "Everything was on time & organized"
Cons: "I had to download that Gogo app to watch a move. That sucked"
Pros: "Crew was very kind and entertainment was good when available"
Cons: "WiFi in all flights"
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were medium on the comfort range."
Cons: "More comfortable seats and more leg room!"
Pros: "The flight crew was very competent and welcoming."
Cons: "The gate agent at JFK was annoying. She forced us to check carry on bags for no apparent reason. Much larger carry on’s were allowed both before and after us. Her fellow agent seemed like she wanted to apologize for her capricious behavior, but was understandably hesitant to do so. The airplane seating was cramped and uncomfortable. The rntertainment choices were very limited unless you enjoy superhero movies or a very limited range of audio/musical selections. So it goes in coach class."
Pros: "Got me there Safely"
Cons: "Couldn’t understand announcements... at all! By flight attendant or pilot"
Pros: "Good snacks. Nice crew. Nice seats."
Cons: "Pay WiFi? JetBlue does it for free.."
Pros: "Crew was extremely attentive and friendly. I wish Delta's flights were this good inside of the U.S.8"
Cons: "knees were jammed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late because the gate was understaffed. During the flight, the crew told us they couldn’t serve us because of turbulence, but then served first class."
Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."
Cons: "Having to wait a long time standing in line before boarding the plane."
Pros: "Crew was friendly enough, but not overly."
Cons: "Entertainment system was (again) not fully functional. No success to "noon-movies", such as games. Plane was untidy almost from the beginning. Check-in staff was functional, but not particularly friendly."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."
Cons: "The boarding process is quite confusing with all the different categories of people prior to the actual listed "zone" boarding. As an example, if you have a "Zone 2" boarding pass, you think you will be second to board when in reality that means you are second to last to board. After those who need extra time, those with small children, active military, premier, whatever.... all that covers about 2/3 of the passengers. Then of course there's all the stepping over those who already boarded which seems to slow the process overall. It would be better to ask these questions when making your reservation. Then, the zones would be appropriate based on how you made your reservation to begin with."
Pros: "Short flight."
Pros: "I told the crew I had a short connection time at a far terminal and I was worried because my seat was in the rear of the aircraft and they were able to move me up closer to the front to ensure I got off the aircraft quickly to make my next flight. That was amazing."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid..."
Cons: "Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade."
Pros: "During my experience on 19 November I encountered only wonderful crew members, from the gate attendants to the on-flight crew. Everyone was extremely helpful and kind."
Cons: "Earlier in the day when I was checking in, there was a prompt to be added to the list of volunteers to take a different flight should one of my later flights (it did not specify, I flew from DAY to ATL, and then ATL to ORF) was overbooked. My schedule was accommodating enough that I selected yes. In ATL I was called up as a potential volunteer as they needed 3 volunteers to take a later flight that day. I was told that I was not initially assigned a seat since I had earlier agreed to be a potential volunteer. I was okay with all of this. We were told that the decision would be made at the end of boarding, and we would know if our seats were needed. At the end of boarding they called for the 3 volunteers to board. I was the last one to board and was given my seat assignment. Once I got on the plane I saw that someone had already been assigned my seat and let a flight attendant know what had happened. I stood on the plane for about 10 minutes while the flight attendants and other crew members tried to figure out what had happened. My name was not listed under any cabin (main, comfort, etc) even though I had a ticket and a seat assignment. Eventually they had to open the doors again for me to get off the plan as there were no available seats. Once I got back to the gate podium I was booked on a later flight, as would have been the case had the normal course of action for volunteering to give up my seat taken place. Everyone was extremely helpful in trying to figure out what had happened, but it was still frustrating that it had to happen in that way. Luckily I don't believe the delay caused any major delay for the flight. In the end, things worked out fine, it just seems as though this is an issue that didn't need to happen."
Cons: "3 hrs delay My first fly was cancell Atl- Mty So ,they booking me next fly atl-Qro I have to stay weathing 9 hrs and just water and cookies"
Cons: "No on board entertainment."
Cons: "No power outlets, back of the plane is really loud, overhead bins suck"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit backwards. They board by zones with the front of the plane going first, so if you're in the back you get stuck in the aisles waiting for these people to sit down. They should board the back of the plane first."
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."
Pros: "When I finally got on a flight (see what I didn't like), the crew was very helpful and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Pros: "Flying to Portland was trouble free."
Cons: "No complaints here"
Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "They did the best they could but my overall experience was poor. It seems when I fly with AA either I miss my connecting flight, the airplane is broken, we deplane then the flight gets canceled, I’m rebooked then that flight is delayed and then eventually cancelled."
Cons: "Need newer planes, better scheduling of flights, flight attendants seem tired or overwhelmed/worked/unhappy."
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Cons: "Flight was rerouted to another airport due to poor weather at Philly. 3 hours later we arrived at Philly, but I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Left late and had a middle seat"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and nice as always!"
Cons: "More room in the seat but I know that’s unrealistic."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The airline brought out some snacks for the passengers after an hour or so."
Cons: "There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. The flight was delayed longer than the travel time to the destination."
Pros: "not a full flight"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Better plane, better notice on delays, not only to weather"
Pros: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."
Pros: "Nothing. Door closed in my face departure board never showed it was boarding and I ran from my other delayed flight to try and catch the Wilmington flight"
Cons: "American needs to step up their device and the airlines should be punished for their lack of service If an airline vises a non weather delay there should be immediate compensation for passengers. No different than what retailers do to their suppliers when supplier is late delivering merchandis"
Cons: "Luggage lost never return"
Pros: "The seat was cormfortable and the entertainment was dope!"
Cons: "Communication. The pilot did not say when he was landing and considering it was a rough landing it would have been helpful to say. He said we shall be landing like 40minutes before Then quiet"
Pros: "Easy flight. Free drinks and snacks. Nice crew."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. Do not help those that are AA members"
Pros: "The most cramped seats ever"
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Pros: "Multiple delays. Ended up taking off after my initial anticipated arrival time. No snacks or food available on the flight either just made for a very poor experience."
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Pros: "food, drinks, seats, price"
Pros: "Flight loaded on time left on time and arrived on time. Crew were all very nice."
Pros: "Speedy check in and security check in. Seats in plane comfortable. Staff wonderful"
Cons: "Our departure flight was cancelled several times and we were not given an explanation. Poor communication and customer service."
Pros: "Boarding at Springfield was fast and simple. The check-in agent were friendly and efficient. I especially appreciated that the flight arrived early into Dallas. I had a little more time to find lunch before my next flight."
Pros: "Nice crew, plenty of drinks to keep hydrated, pretty smooth flight"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy."
Cons: "This requires a list- 1. For a new plane, the seats were uncomfortable 2. The seats had no leg rests 3. It was an overnight flight, arriving before 6 am and all that was offered prior to landing was a mint...seriously, no coffee? I was in first class and expected a light breakfast but AT LEAST A CUP OF COFFEE. Never again will I pay for first class on this airline. AMERICAN AIRLINES SHOULD BE ASHAMED. 4. The crew was unwelcoming and unfriendly. Not acceptable when paying these prices."
Pros: "After the nearly 9 hours of delays, the seemingly hastily assembled crew appeared to be equally annoyed, but got us through to MIA."
Cons: "Same. The flight crew and stewards were mostly also angry in demeanor."
Cons: "Diverted and delayed. Got home 8 hours later then I should have."
Pros: "In general everything was good."
Cons: "There was no menu to know ahead what was coming so I could have decided before the meals came"
Pros: "Very helpful and kind staff. Everything was on time and made for a great travel experience."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."
Pros: "Boarding was I rushed and efficient, roominess of seats, pillow and blanket waiting for us on our seats, good dinner and breakfast, frequent passes by flight attendants to see if folks needed water - great movie selection, USB chargers at every seat- just great!"
Cons: "Jerk who smoked in the bathroom so the alarm went off in the middle of the flight and woke folks up, so it got brighter and noisier and harder to sleep!"
Pros: "Quick flight, no pressure issues in flight."
Cons: "There were two delays."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight itself was uneventful and arrived 19 minutes early. The follow flight to Toronto was about equally late, but construction and heavy traffic made it unavoidable. I saved a lot of money with the Hopper app. Flying used to be nicer, but this is what cost cutting (anywhere) results in - less service and less comfort. We get what we demand - whether we really want it or not."
Cons: "I miss the 'free' services such as food, but we all know it wasn't that great anyway."
Pros: "The flight was quick and everyone was nice."
Cons: "No entertainment but it was only and hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Plane was on schedule luggage taken as I boarded and help available as needed. This is very important for an 80 year old. Thanks for a great trip. Sue"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "not bad, I upgraded to first for the leg room, I'm 6'6", so it kinda worked out."
Cons: "Very old plane."
Pros: "Got us on the flight and in the air fast."
Cons: "They had plane issues and then the flight was delayed and then they changed our gates."
Cons: "The weather was bad in Dallas preventing our landing. Our plane had to be diverted to be refueled which caused us to miss our connecting flight. There was no one at the counter to help us, but one of the crew told us to call the 800 number which told us our connecting flight was in the air. When we finally found someone to help us, they rescheduled us for the next flight out 11 hours later. When we asked about accommodations, we were told there would be none since it was weather related. Then we were told we could "look for a cot", but she didn't know where any cots were."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Wished the airline would have checked my bag rather then leave it at the gateway Time was wasted if you had a connecting flight"
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Well.....it was canceled so I had to go to charlotte after to London and at the end at Rome and every one of them had delay's"
Cons: "flight has been cancelled, airline staff gave me hotel vouchers which the hotel would NOT honor, I went back and forth twice because those two hotels would not accomodate american airline passenger vouchers, I end up calling a friend to pick up at the airport she has to drive for an hour just to pick me up, I regret buying a ticket in american airline"
Cons: "Airline didn't take customs for an international flight into account when scheduling the flight. We had to wait over an hour for "customs" to attend to the arriving flight."
Pros: "asked to have my window seat switched to an aisle for both legs of my flight. One leg did, the other didn't get changed, and I was led on to believe it did. disappointed that I was told one thing and it was not correct."
