Pros: "Immagration was fast and organized didn't take long to move through customs. Quick and smooth"
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."

Pros: "We made it safe."
Cons: "The constant delays. And nothing was done about it. Not even we're sorry. Here's a voucher. Or here's something on us due to the circumstances."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly boarding etc."
Cons: "Because of packed flight many of us had to check our luggage. Not horrible, but slightly annoying. As well as taking a long time to de-plane."
Pros: "Overall it was good"
Pros: "I felt the entire flight crew was there to make my trip more pleasant. The plane was new and had free video and usb outlets to charge my devices."
Cons: "Nothing, truly an excellent experience."
Cons: "Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation."
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "Good service for us... when it came to boarding and flying, the staff were great for us."
Cons: "However, one flight attendant was extremely rude in addressing a passenger who was not fluent in English. She was asking the passengers in the exit row if they were willing and able to help in the event of an emergency, and when he could not follow her (pretty quick) question, she grew very inpatient and just told him he needed to move to another seat if he didn't know English. She did not repeat her question or give him a chance to express himself. Before he could say anything else, another passenger volunteered to switch seats with him, so that matter was settled. But when another attendant asked what the commotion had been (the attendant had raised her voice a bit), she yelled across the plane that this man does not speak English, sounding very inpatient. I found it very rude, and although it did not happen to me, no amount of exasperation short of an emergency merits the response of that flight attendant. All the other flight attendants were polite though."
Cons: "I paid extra for an exit row seat for the leg room. My knees were hitting the back of the seat in the row in front of me. Epic fail!"
