Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew did a mediocre job of keeping us informed as to the delay of takeoff."
Cons: "There was some type of mechanical or electric issue that delayed our flight by 30 minutes or so, which is unwelcome for a flight that late at night."

Pros: "I appreciate that Delta chooses customer safety over profit by not packing flights and continuing to social distance."

Pros: "Efficient and sanitary"

Cons: "Baggage handling at Wilmington is extremely slow and typically is."

Cons: "Way exceeded my expectations!"

Cons: "After 1 hour, still sitting on the tarmac waiting to get to our gate."

Cons: "We were seated near the back of the airplane. The heater came on midway of the flight, by the time we landed, it was difficult to breathe because it was so hot. The flight attendant all relocated from the back of aircraft to the front aircraft where it was cooler, I assume. I was worried for my son."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and professional. The on-board entertainment was excellent and the seats were actually comfortable. I was provided the option to use any restroom by the crew without regard to my seating location."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Pros: "I have used Delta long time. Used to be really bad. Today. Good good."
Cons: "Free beer"

Pros: "Met expectations; except for treatment of an oversized passanger, which turned out good in the end."

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful seats and movie were awesome!!!"

Pros: "Loved the plane, people and timeliness"

Pros: "Actual flight"
Cons: "Could have done without the almost 5 hour delay and no good options for alternative flights. We got in at 3am and it ruined our trip as we were exhausted for my daughter’s college visits."

Pros: "Snacks and drinks and movies on point."
Cons: "No cheese its."

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. Snack mix tasted plain."

Pros: "Getting offered a stipend to change flights - getting my preferred rental car"
Cons: "A direct flight"

Cons: "Seat didnt recline and very tight between passenger seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That Delta was not more accommodating when I missed my flight.. Got totally lost in Austin. Have never driven there before and highways were difficult at times. $503 to get on another flight home. Ended up getting better deal at Southwest. Will most likely stick with them next time I am forced to fly."

Pros: "Good landing, great service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "love that Delta is now giving out Kind bars. Thanks!"

Pros: "Charging stations, roomy seats"
Cons: "One attendant was a bit snarky."

Pros: "Flying and going fast, plus the people are kool too."
Cons: "That it was a short trip."

Cons: "Plane was late numerous times. Boarding was painful"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation, The crew sprayed me twice with the fizz from opening soda cans with no apology."

Pros: "A plenty trip!!!"

Cons: "Ran out of fuel and had to divert to Birmingham. Disappointed. Turned into a 3-4 h delay. When we got to ATL our gate was occupied. All in all very poor service. Delta is better than this."

Pros: "Everything was great. Very nice flight"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Nice flight nice crew just about as good as you would want"

Pros: "Although boarding began late, it was efficient and we left on time."
Cons: "Even a 29 dollar Comfort Plus seat had very little legroom."

Pros: "At least the flight wasn't cancelled?"
Cons: "Five minutes before the scheduled boarding time, it was announced the flight was delayed by 1 hour 25 minutes. I am almost certain this was not weather-related, according to flight trackers. I understand that weather delays are essentially out of airlines' hands. However, if the delay is caused for other reasons like "mechanical issues", or any other errors or miscommunications within the airline itself, then they should be held liable. My time is worth money, so any delays not weather-related should result in a reasonable refund based on the duration of the delay. An apology doesn't placate customers' frustration and inconvenience due to delays."

Pros: "Despite a delay, we arrived in White Plains on or close to schedule."
Cons: "The gate agent just kept going on and on about trying to make up the time from a delay (18 minutes ...hardly world ending). The lead flight attendant wasn’t much better"

Pros: "Seat back movies Staff was attentive and patient with my sick teen daughter."
Cons: "Old plane with no seat back entertainment on one leg of journey."

Pros: "Delta plane was renovated for the entertainment and seat comfort. This was the first time I didn't have to recline the seat because the normal incline felt fine. Legroom was good also. Every seat had a screen and free media to choose from. Very impressed. Great job Delta!"
Cons: "There was wifi onboard and it was advertised that we could connect and use iMessage, whatsApp and Facebook messenger free of charge but I wasn't able to do so on this flight. I didn't ask about it but this would be an excellent amenity to keep in touch with the people on the ground"

Pros: "Hey, domestic U.S. flights aren't all bad! I was pleasantly surprised by the kind service and amenities on this Delta flight. There's a plethora of free movies to watch, and the crew continually checked on us to make sure we were hydrated. I think Delta may become my new prefered carrier for domestic flights."

Cons: "The amount of space! I’m only 5’7”, 125lbs and I was absolutely squished in this seat. Oh and we waited an hour in the tarmac for a maintenance guy to fix a computer? Why can’t they figure this out before we board? It’s better to sit at the gate than in your cramped airplanes."

Cons: "Full can of soda"

Pros: "Getting from one location to the next. Making sure everyone was okay with the turbulence."
Cons: "There was no Dr.Pepper, took forever for the WiFi to kick in. Only had the biscotti cookies for the snack."

Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"

Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "No food offered. Premium seating that I paid for was so narrow there was no way I could sit next to the person next to me and not have their elbows on me."

Pros: "Price for a very short notice trip, ease of online booking, very informative staff. Also, able to readjust my seating assignment."

Cons: "Seats in the plane not good, overall an old plane looks like."

Pros: "Seats which I choose where very comfortable."
Cons: "Would have like a choice in food severd"

Cons: "Mechanical problems deejays the flight and I missed my connection. Uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."

Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."

Thank you so much for keeping us all together, as my one child has aspbergers and the other is only 8 and we are not frequent flyers. I highly recommend your airline to everyone I meet. Everything met or exceeded our needs. Thank you so very much."

Pros: "Airport expansion"
Cons: "Due to construction traffic is a problem but still manageable"

Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"
