Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Socially distancing worked well on the plane because the middle seats are not occupied, snacks are bagged and the head flight attendant was funny and gave an inspirational message on the PSA at the gate and when we landed."
Pros: "On schedule"
Pros: "Quick boarding process! Everything was on time as estimated."
Pros: "All was great!"
Pros: "I have used Delta long time. Used to be really bad. Today. Good good."
Cons: "Free beer"
Pros: "Confort was minor but ok"
Cons: "The flight was not on time. The staff broke my carry-on zip for expansion and refuse to admit it was a suitcase damage which need to be repair. They said put a belt around it to use it !!!! It is a 1 year new piece of luggage from Delsey which is a very good quality brand and expensive!!!!!!"
Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"
Pros: "Super crew. Reasonably good food. Liked how safety conscious crew was."
Cons: "Nothing. Great job everyone"
Pros: "The flight was on time and they did give free snacks! Nice change!"
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Cons: "Ear buds that allow me to hear the movies clearly; better equalization of the treble, bass and volume. I had to constantly turn volume up and down because of fluctuations in the movie sound track."
Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was so short, there was little interaction with them."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster, people didn’t have seats which caused a delay in boarding. It was a mess. The seats were uncomfortable and too small. I know it’s a short flight but it was just too tight in there. The flight was delayed and the communication was all over; the time was constantly changin"
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Friendlier faces. Seats that work better. Was clear on the reclining operation"
Pros: "No major delays and able to make my connection. It was a standard flight without too much to report on"
Cons: "wish there could be less trash generated on airplanes. I notices that Flight Attendants on this flight separated the plastic cups from the trash, and I hope this got recycled."
Pros: "Sat in the Key West airport for five hours because of delays. Somehow the other airlines managed to get their people on and off the island. Although they say they can’t land in a 25 mph crosswind we were watching the weather. It mostly stayed below 20 mph for hours before departure"
Cons: "I was never notified that the flight from Asheville to Atlanta was delayed...probably cancelled...... my connection to Munich would have been missed..... not reliable and not customer friendly to never notify the passenger!"
Pros: "Skywest flight. No issues. Friendly cabin crew. Short 40 minute flight."
Pros: "Staff were very good."
Cons: "We had an infant and in order to get a meal for the baby one of our paid seats did not get a meal. Very unsatisfactory for first class. The toddler meal provided was terrible. Stale bread, cheese on the sandwich was so bad the baby wouldn't eat it, and he eats almost everything. It was the first food I have seen him refuse to eat."
Pros: "Flew us safely home."
Cons: "We waiting on the runway for over a long period."

Pros: "Food service was good."
Cons: "The the audio stopped workin halfway through the flight."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Cons: "Boarding employee was rude."
Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"
Pros: "Friendly staffs and on time flights"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "1 Entertainment system was not working correctly. It shut down twice during the movie. I had to re boot the system twice."
Pros: "Good friendly staff. Delta Studios is neat."
Cons: "Small plane , last minute seat change, half hour delay"
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."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Cons: "Was not a wheelchair waiting for Wallace."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "on time meet all my expectations"
Cons: "I believe it is time for WI-FI to be complimentary in flights. It is far too expensive and feels like price gaugiMh."
Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "See above."
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: "Great crew and prompt service. We left and arrived exactky when it said we would."
Cons: "Snacks could have been a bit better but that's not a deal breaker."
Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
