The amount of issues we had with traveling with Delta and gate agents was insane. We've never had this many issues with Delta, flights, luggage, and lack of customer support from the agents. However, the flight attendants on the flight were amazing and as kind as could be.

Flight crew was very friendly and professional

The service was vrey poor. 3 flight attendeds late coming in 35mins late. Then we had to wait on the runway for a storm to pass us by which was about another 30 mins. Very Very Poor service.

Lots of delays. Armrests are not big enough for two people.

Cons: "Flight was delayed causing the connection impossible. Delta provides no way to communicate directly with a human making rebooking impossible. The lack of care destroyed our family reunion."
Pros: "Delayed boarding but made up for lost time in the air"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"
Pros: "The plane arrived in Atlanta ahead of time and thus we were able to start boarding earlier than usual. The gate agent kept the process in order and moved the boarding process along nicely. The pilots also got us to Baton Rouge 28 minutes ahead of schedule which was appreciated. Nice flight."
Cons: "Same issue with getting passengers seated once on the aircraft and then getting their luggage stowed takes too much time."
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "I love the Airbus aircraft we were flying in. It is far superior to the boeing."
Cons: "Left seven hours later than I anticipated Some passengers were rebooked on earlier flights while others told to go with same flight flying later Very very disorganized"
Pros: "Some Delta planes have headrest Screens. Both my flights did and love watching movies they offer at eye level then to use iPad and have to bed down to watch. You can’t tell why planes have seat back screens but sure glad my flights dis"
Cons: "Snack choice was only two items Cheezit or Cookies. Neither sounded good to me."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Pros: "The staff are great very nice pleasant"
Cons: "Wifi doesn't work for long time and have wait long periods to watch something. TV on head reat is nice"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food, comfort, space, entertainment"
Pros: "Had the whole Comfort section to myself!"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t very friendly"
Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff. Would definitely recommend . Flight departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "Everything was so very nice. The seats were fantastic in First Class. So comfortable. The service & food were delightful. The only negative was the screaming infant. This is my second trip on Delta in First Class in the past three months. Both times the trip was ruined by crying babies. ☹️"
Cons: "The crying infant."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Crowded waiting area and plane. Awful on plane!"
Pros: "Didn’t fly to Detroit . Delta changed flight to Atlanta & then toFort Meyers"
Pros: "Delayed 40 minutes first flight out at 5am. Missed connecting flight by 2 minutes."
Cons: "No assistance in helping us get to our destination"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hr"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Early morning flights .. the People are not aware and awake"
Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."
Pros: "Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)"
Pros: "I liked watching movies."
Pros: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient."
Cons: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient. Unfortunately, we had to wait over 20 minutes to get into our gate because another plane was there, so we arrived late. Not DELTA's fault."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late arriving ATL at gate after our original connection had departed. We had to change to later flight from ATL to JAX."
Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Distaff who is very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
Pros: "I was comfortable in my seat, with the pilot and the stewardesses."
Cons: "I was charged for my carry-on bag. My first time flying I didn't know that I could have a carry-on and pocketbook to take with me."
Pros: "Laura, who checked us in was extraordinarily great."
Pros: "I make this trip every month. And this crew is the best I had in a while."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."

Smooth sailing...no delays, no cancellation. Everything went smoothly. Seating still cramped and no real food except what's available at airport vendors. Crew was efficient but not overly friendly.

Have global access. Was directed down the line there but nobody working TSA. Had to them cut into economy line. Why pay for something if you can not get it at the airport

Pros: "Upbeat and attentive crew"
Cons: "Wifi was awful. On a long flight, that's important. The crew's explanation was that when so many people are logged on at once, it kicks someone else off. Which basically means the system wasn't designed for everyone to use."
Pros: "Crew was really friendly."
Cons: "WiFiwas not functioning. They ran out of food. Boarding was delayed."
Pros: "They let me know they couldn't get it together enough to get a plane in an almost timely manner. Once they did I couldn't take advantage of the alternatives without risking missing out all together"
Cons: "The 4 plus hour delay that meant a 3 plus hour layover because of the missed connection. Requesting an agreement to just make the new connection because of their non-weather related delay."
Pros: "The connecting flight from Chicago to Traverse City was very nice due to the leg room in the exit row I purchased at additional cost."
Cons: "The seats on the flight from Albany to Chicago were the new smaller type which were horrible for a 6,5 260 lb man in exit row economy seating. Dogs on board which was bad for my allergies. This seems to be the case more times than not. I’m asthmatic and very allergic to animals. I know, it’s all my fault..."
Cons: "It was three hour deley in Newark Airport because the plain didn't arrive on time."
Cons: "Cramped, not enough room for carry-ons"
Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."
Cons: "a coach class seat is a chair of torture!!!!"
Pros: "The flight is on time.... the food is good.... the service is excellent...."
Cons: "Lack of snacks..."
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
Pros: "Slightly delayed for slow baggage handling at gate"
Cons: "Bumped from two flights due to weather and delayed due to pilots coming in late"
Cons: "Air lines can't keep a schedule."
Pros: "The plane arrived safely in Newark"
Cons: "The plane left 7 hours late - for a 45 min flight. I got on another flight (only becuase I sought a solution to arri9ving 7 hrs late) but still arrived several hours after my determined arrival time. No compenatio or apology."
Pros: "There was a problem at Newark airport on my way back. The united agent was terrific to successfully secure a different route for me so I could get back home. Many thanks,"
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "The space in my seat feels bigger than other airlines"
Cons: "I couldn't switch the internet that I bought to my phone from my computer without signing up. It would have been nice to put in my name and have it transfer"
Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Wheelchair service was so helpful for my mother."
Cons: "Over an hour mechanical delay at ALB. We barely made it to our connection. Pretty tense considering I was with an elderly confused mother who would not have dealt well with a delay from Newark to Denver."
Pros: "Fight was on time. Crew very pleasant. No complaints"
Cons: "Flight was originally for 2:58pm. When I got to the airport it was delayed until 4:15pm. This wasn't ideal but I would still make my connecting flight in EWR at 6:20. I got to my gate to find a sign saying "most on time arrivals in our history" followed by my flight now delayed until 5:00pm. It was once again delayed into 5:20pm and so I had to be transferred to an American flight or else I would not have left the day scheduled."
Pros: "Cold in hallway for manditory carry on check & anxious that I may not make next flight, . Newark to Ft. Myers"
Pros: "Went as expected"
Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing to like about this trip."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours due to a ground stop at the next airport. Upon finally boarding the plane for a second time, we sat at the Albany airport for abou 40 minutes. When arriving to the Newark airport, there was communication issues and no way for us to get to a terminal so we were stuck on that plane for 2 hours. While stuck on the plane my connecting flight got delayed twice then cancelled. Once finally in the airport, I waited an hour in line for customer service only to tell me they couldn't even put me up in a hotel because it was air traffic controls fault, even though NO other airline was down. They gave me a $10 food voucher, apparently that would fix everything. I had to put myself in a $130 hotel room and being a broke college student I wasn't expecting that. I will never fly united again, it was he worst experience I've ever had and one of the most stressful days. This airline is horrible."
Pros: "I liked getting a snack and drink. I guess all planes are crowded. I didn't have any carrying luggage so I didn't have to worry about overhead storage- which would have been a problem."
Pros: "the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The food was terrible. The seats are so small you cannot access your carry on under the seats."
Pros: "Nothing good at all"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Got us in early (efficent)."
Cons: "Boarding is a free-for-all. No ammenties (charged for tv, internet, and food)."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled three times. Understanding that can happen, it's the fact that United didn't do anything to make everyone relaxed about having the flight delayed. The crew and pilots were very understanding and relayed reasons for delay while ON the plane. The air on the plane was very cold."
Pros: "leg room was not too bad"
Cons: "I needed to ask questions about my flights because of delays and not a single person acted professional at the gates, quite rude responses. On each of my 3 plane changes there was only one attendant actually smiled. Another read from a sheet of paper like she didn't know what to say. Two others never dmiled or said you're welcome after I thanked them. Im used to the friendly staff on Southwest. They are great!"
Cons: "Flight before delayed 5 hours. Bad snack, expressive food"
Pros: "Did not realize that I was not confirmed. I was traveling for a medical emergency and needed to wait to be cleared."
Cons: "Plane was tiny and claustrophobic"
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Seating is uncomfortable, everything costs money, takes a long time"
Pros: "The Flight was a little delayed but the captain and staff were very apologetic and we made up for lost time during the flight. Had plenty of leg room and was attended to regularly. Staff was very personable and kind."
Cons: "I've flown several times with many different airlines. I have no serious complaints about United, they have their game on point. If anything were to be said it would be to have less broadcasts about everything going on during the flight, not that it's a burden either but sleep is a little hard pressed when you want to hear what it's about."
Pros: "Flight a lot easier then flight up to NY. Didn't have to ride with left over storm conditions. Smoother flight."
Pros: "The flight was delayed so they put me on a direct flight with an earlier arrival time..... So nice."
Pros: "United crews use to tell me you couldn't preboard with children but they must have changed that policy because they allowed it this time."
Cons: "They always ask a second time for the boarding pass after the first agent scans it. They should tell you to keep it out if they are going to review it a second time."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A miserable 13 hour flight. The wifi did not work the entire trip and the movies shown on the large screens kept "skipping" as well. There were no screens on the seat backs to watch movies. (And since wi fi wasn't working I couldn't watch movies on iPad either.). The food was overcooked and inedible."
Pros: "The timely fashion that the process took to complete, traveling was good and easy that day!"
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing!"
Cons: "The whole nightmare of flying on United worst travel ever. never again"
Pros: "Left on time - arrived on time"
Pros: "Zooooooommm"
Cons: "Where the asciago?"
Cons: "3 hour delay out of Albany. My flight was canceled out of Newark and had to wait about 23 hours for next flight. I wasn't offered hotel, food or lounge to accommodate such a lengthy delay. Airport's should be able to accommodate delayed passenger's with better entertainment and comfort."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice."
Cons: "Flight was needlessly delayed. No help given. Horrible."
Pros: "We flew a Delta flight home due to the snowstorm affecting flights. We were routed through Atlanta, not Newark. The Delta flight was very good."
Pros: "staff on airplane"
Cons: "staff at checkin counter"
