Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seat was very spacious"
Cons: "More space to put things"
Pros: "I paid extra to get bulkhead seat. But the monitor won't stay up. So I asked for help. Flight attendant used duct tape for both my monitor and the one next to mine."
Cons: "My boarding pass was marked with SSSS and I was subjected to another security search at the gate in NRT! They laid out all my carry-on stuff in 2 long tables and swabbed both my hands. Then sent me on my way, leaving my passport on the table. Good thing I had the presence of mind to look for it!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Cons: "Nothing! Excellent flight!"
Cons: "Luggage lost. Tv audio did not work"
Pros: "they assisted my aunt very well all through out her flight"
Cons: "Cabin crews need to learn how to smile."
Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"
Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."
Pros: "Two choices of meal and friendlier staff. Props to JAL."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Premium economy seats well worth the few extra $$."
Pros: "They were very accommodating and helped ensure a good travel experience (first time traveling with a young child)."

Pros: "Roomy seats on JAL flights - their actual airplanes. Horrible when they codeshare with american and use American Airlines planes."
Cons: "They have to take the prize for having the absolute slowest customer service in the world. When I booked my tickets, I emailed customer service to make sure I didn’t get a center seat. It took them two months - TWO MONTHS - to email me back, to tell me there was nothing they could do. I also had to be reticketed on my flight from Tokyo to Hanoi. It took them 3 1/2 hours to do this. I had to sit in the airport for 3 1/2 hours to get my ticket changed. Unbelievable. They could’ve chiseled it in stone faster than they issued it."
Pros: "Best customer service"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Because of some system updating we were unable to check in online and had to wait until we got to the airport to select seats. By then, there were no decent seats available. My bladder nearly burst because the guy next to me slept the whole time. They say it will take 3 weeks to update the system. This is a terrible level of customer care."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The father next to me that spilled two drinks on me. I didn't even get an apology. Beyond sold out plane too..."
Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."

Pros: "Asian vegetarian meal"
Cons: "limited rest room facilities"
Pros: "JAL 787 Coach Product is better than AA Coach 777 product. Wider Coach seats. 787 aircraft is more comfortable overall (less noisy, higher humidity, higher pressure) resulting in a better experience after my travel."
Cons: "Meals are not fantastic; they never seem to be in coach. Much of the entertainment seemed similar to what was on the same aircraft when I traveled three months earlier."
Pros: "Went premium economy for such a long flight- NYC to Tokyo- to Sydney. Seats were great as was crew and everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Flight was very good. Entertainment and power on new Dreamliner is excellent. Food - better than the hot dog we received as a meal on the LAX-KIX flight. Still just ok overall. Seat comfort is ok but more recline - at least in premium economy."
Pros: "The crew were all exceptionally pleasant, helpful."
Cons: "I didn't care at all for the food."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Economy seats were far more generous than AA. Premium Economy was a great value! I will look to travel JAL over AA more in the future."
Pros: "The flight staff on Japan airlines was great. The meals were excellent, and the flight itself was fairly comfortable."

Cons: "OLD PLANES Touchscreens won't 50% of the time"
Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Slightly delayed"

Thank You !!"
Cons: "If there was no delay."
Cons: "They should’ve let us wait in the boarding room instead we all waited in the flight cabin, in our seats for 5.5 hours during the entire time of the flight delay. It was really terrible."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient. Crew was tirelessly courteous and respectful. The entertainment system had a good selection, but I've seen better. The food and drink service was excellent. Seats had charging jackass for phones. I'd fly with them again"

Cons: "Food can be improved, economy seats are tight. Movie selection not as vast as SQ and Cathay"
Pros: "My 96-yr-old father was given an airport wheelchair after we checked his own transport chair. He was wheeled through security and to the departure gate. We were advised they changed us to a bulkhead row w/an unoccupied seat adjacent to his. Twice during the flight one of the flight attendants came to tell him that she would help him off the plane so to wait for her after the rest of the passengers disembarked. The meal was very tasty.Chicken karaage was not crispy but I wouldn't expect it to be. The rest of the items were well seasoned with the right consistency. Dessert was a flan custard with passion fruit sauce (very Hawaii!), even including a few seeds from the fruit as garnish."

Cons: "Internet is way too expensive and barely works."
Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"
Cons: "Decent flight but not the seat that I wanted. Window seat without a window. Emergency exit seat which is supposed to have leg room but didn't because of emergency door. Taking some over the counter pain medication helped this and made the flight bearable. Fewer storage options."
Pros: "I liked that each seat had a foot rest. The food was very good you get a haaggen dazs ice cream during one of the meals. The food wasn't filling but that's to be expected so bring snacks if your own. The flight was smooth no issues and the flight attendants were very attentive. Had a tv with movies and the personal tv also had games like a game system."
Cons: "I disliked that the seating did not have its own personal air. At times I would get hot."
Pros: "I liked that they feed us good food, and we were feed several times. We were also offered several drinks, and all the flight attendants were extremely nice. We would fly Ana airways all the time if given the chance. Seats were very comfortable and spacious."

Cons: "No internet and the food was mediocre at best."
Cons: "They drop you at the airport for 16-17 hours Airport hotel costs around 350$/night No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they gave No entry visas because you bought a discounted ticket!!"
Cons: "They re issued my boarding pass Doha, for Dallas flight and gave us the last seat on the plane, even though I chosed the seat at the time of booking. Food was ok, but when we asked for the chicken they didn’t had it. It’s an international flight of 15 hours with food shortage???"
Cons: "Observed that one flight attendant from India is giving more attention to a person who is from Navy. He avoided asking what we want for drinks etc. He always ignored us and pushed his cart before we answer. We are very unhappy with his behavior, however, adjusted ourselves."

Pros: "Everything from courtesy, to very good food, and a clean flight."
Pros: "I received email telling me that my fright was delayed and showed the time they told me to be at KGL airport but when I showed the airline was already left because they was no delayed.

Cons: "Took a long time to get the trays after meals (at least 30-40mins) , didn't offer smaller snacks such as cookies between meals,"

Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"
Pros: "I had a great experience with overall trip."

Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Staff courtesy"
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "Food serving took a while. And need improvements."
Pros: "I like everything about Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Suggestion: I think it is better if all the children and their parents/ care takers are provided priority seats in front. This will reduce unnecessary annoyance caused to other passengers on long flights and at the same time enhance the experience of the children and their care takers if special attention can be devoted to them."
Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food frequency for 16 hour flight was awfully inadequate. Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. No intermittent beverage and snack service in 16 hour flight segment. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"
Pros: "On Time Cabin Crew great"
Cons: "Seats are so tight you will sense both of your neighbors skin during the entire flight"

Cons: "One of the crew member took his food trolley over my food and did not even apologize.i found them rude"
Pros: "Staff wonderful,"
Cons: "Entertainment system old, malfunctions"
Pros: "The crew could be less curt and more engaging. Coming from Guest Services in hospitality, leisure and tourism it is obvious that body language and sincere engagement stands out. That wasn’t the case for the Qantas flight."
Cons: "I was unable to checkin or select seats. Understandably this is governed by immigration laws and not airlines but on three attempts I was able to pay for the seats without a receipt only to learn later that the charge did not go through. A little bit of transparency never costs anyone."
Pros: "The crew was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "If the seats reclined more, it would have been easier to sleep. The baby behind me would not stop screaming for 7 of the 15 hour flight. The flight was oversold so there was no where I could move. Even ear plugs didn’t help. Everyone was miserable."
Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their new names."
Cons: "The frittata and the spinach was not the best meal, but the rest seemed really good."
Cons: "Food. They ran out of the fruit plate and the other was inedible."
Cons: "unable to get assigned seat ahead of time. the only seat available was in the middle, getting uncomfortable to getting in and out. Economy on upper deck has only one bathroom that I leave the imagination up to you."
Cons: "The food was poor quality."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Plane was very warm, but Very friendly crew, and flight was on time :)"
Cons: "- There was a massive line for boarding and it took a while. We ended up leaving a little late because of it. - The crew overlooked the row I was in a few times. We had to call for assistance to get rubbish removed. - One of the toilets didn't have running water in the basin from the second hour of the flight onwards. - The galley in the back was locked for most of the trip. - The food wasn't cooked properly. - Everyone was asked if they wanted a drink with my meal except for me."
Cons: "Seating space was horrible! The seat in front of me, when reclined, was IN MY LAP! Headphones were bad. This LONG flight left A LOT to be desired!"
Cons: "very cramped"
Pros: "Smooth flight and well managed. Coffee just not up to Australian standards."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and willing to help"
Cons: "Selection of movies not that great when you spend 14 hours sitting on a chair for that long you expect at least to have some good movies to watch ... that was a let down. Also everytime they served us food it seemed lime yhey didnt have enough of the choices we were given as the crew had run out of our choices all the time making choose things we didnt lie"
Pros: "Entertainment and check in staff."
Cons: "Wasn’t able to check in on line. Was asked to pay for seat request on return flight. Passenger put seats as far as can go bashing into my knees (and I am average height. Not very tall), both 15-16 hour flights. It was awful and crew only insist chair is raised slightly for meals. none of my flights since joining frequent flyer were honoured scoring “0” points for flights from/back to US. Back to Delta I guess"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "Checking online didn’t work. You could not request seats ahead of time and would tell you check in online and when you tried it would fail and told us to go to the airport which we did the day before and they told us they couldn’t do anything. Every agent told us something different about meal plans and seats. Crew onboard were not friendly and rude to us in economy. The vegetarian meal requested was awful and ended up being vegan which was not what we requested. When I asked for fruit plate off the regular menu the flight attendant never followed back up with me and so we didn’t eat any food for on a 15+ hour flight. Even though they had 100+ empty seats we couldn’t move around. Overall I was highly disappointed in their service on this flight."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand. It helped that we were on an A380 and because of the lack of the plane being filled both my travel companion and I had 3 seats to ourselves to stretch out. In economy, without that, nothing would have made the trip bearable. That said, the food was good, the entertainment options good, and the after hours water/liquid/snack options were quite good."
Pros: "Caught a tail wind for a shorter flight"
Cons: "2 hour delay at start. Everything seemed “off” on this full flight, most likely due to the delay. Food was not as fresh as it normally is, boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "The food selection was good as was the entertainment and information."
Cons: "I asked information about our arrival gate, because I had a short connection and the crew could not tell me what gate we were getting off at. They did not stop passengers from unloading their bags and standing up before the flight even stopped at the gate. I am frustrated with Qantas overall because we landed late and because of the customs requirement we had to pick up our bags and bring them to another bag drop for my American Airline flight to Tampa. Because of the flight delay and Customs I missed my flight by 10 minutes. And am now awaiting the next flight home which was 4 hours later."
Pros: "Overall experience was decent. Food, boarding and entertainment was top notch"
Cons: "Super cramped for a long haul flight. Could barely organize myself. Could barely reach down to get a book out of my bag. Thank goodness i was sitting next to my husband because we had to be totally in each others space to be comfortable;((("
Pros: "I had a nice seat."
Cons: "Staff were unattentive, nasty"
Pros: "It never left.....I am still in Sydney!!!! Keep up on your dlights"
Cons: "Quantas Flight was cancelled going down and also back."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after 8 hours of Rebooked flight included an additonal stop, as well as overnight layover. Qantas made no attempt to give have better flights or offer any vouchers for the trouble (they provided the bare minimum of hotel, but no additional perks)."
Pros: "Friendly, courteous staff. Good accommodations"
Pros: "The crew we're wonderful and very attentive."
Cons: "For being one of the longest flights in the world, there is little in the way if accommodations to make it any easier. The food was less than desirable and the seats not nearly as comfortable as they should be."
Cons: "My business class seat was the bulk head seat. I paid dearly for this ticket and was scheduled to do business in Sydney when we landed. Having both the bathroom and food prep just beside the bulk head seat means that the staff needs to mandate a quite environment so that those persons in those seats can sleep. The staff fraternized with the passenger and I was unable to sleep. I should have been warned about this seat selection. Also the curtain that separates the areas should provide more sound proofing ability. Devastated upon arrival. This was one of my worst Qantas experiences."
Pros: "A crew member saw that I was crying upon departure and left a stack of tissues in the seat next to me. Then the crew member checked on me later to make sure I was ok. It was very nice and touching."
Cons: "My chicken was raw in my lunch."
Pros: "The long trip !"
Cons: "I left my jacket on the plane and didn't notice until I'd gone through customs (about 20 minutes after leaving the plane). There was NO way to contact Quantas or go back or do anything to get my clothing back. No one at the airport had any suggestions for me. The airport phone that dialed Quantas was only for frequent flyer point inquiries. I have now been trying for a full day (three phone calls with zero helpfulness) to see if anything can be done. I understand that I made the mistake of forgetting my items but the 17 hour flight left me a bit spacey. I am super frustrated."
Pros: "Customer service...very helpful and accommodating. Good food. Easy transfer from domestic to international. On one of our flights, a 39 minute one, they served a substantial snack (yogurt, breakfast biscuits, oj) and tea, coffee, etc. Amazing in that amount of time!"
Cons: "I tried to think of something but I couldn’t."
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment. Served good food often with nice menu selection. Seats a bit tight as with all airlines. Fruit was fabulous and fresh - there were none left when I requested mine, but the flight attendant said there may be some left from other servers. Within a few minutes, she did bring one which I was thankful as I didn’t care for the other selection."
Cons: "Close seats especially when others recline, but we were lucky on this flight no one did as it wasn’t a full flight so people moved around."
Pros: "Fabulous service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Very fast boarding process in Sydney. Food service very efficient, with decent choices."
Cons: "Experienced a departure delay due to a mechanical problem. Missed the original connection to Charlotte in Dallas. AA was very efficient in scheduling an alternate flight, including luggage transfers. 4 hour late arrival which was OK given we started in Sydney."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Still cramped esp when front seat reclines. Seats are very uncomfortable by end of flight."
Pros: "Were able to create an allergy friendly meal for my daughter on board, even though the information we called and provided ahead of time was lost."
Cons: "Economy class seats are too cramped for such long haul flights."
Cons: "Missed as a result of delayed flight an hour the same as on the way out To Sydney which threw a wrench in everything. Both times “to clean the plane” get a system that works."
Pros: "The entertainment is great and food is great. Some of the crew were grumpy but it is a lot of time for them."
Pros: "My luggage arrived quickly in Dallas"
Cons: "The food was the worst I’ve ever been served on a flight."
Cons: "Took 2.5 hours to get the first refreshments. While there was some turbulence, when they finally did get the carts rolling there were clearly time management and inventory issues. They recovered and the rest of the trip went smoothly, but not a good way to start a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and pleasant. Came around often to make all was ok. Seats were comfortable for a flight that long with the pillows and blankets provided."
Cons: "The fact that it took off a half hour late. This was blamed on a passsenger and their paperwork. While I can appreciate they took a little extra time that amount was in my opinion too much. With running that late along with the grounds crew taking over an hour to get the bags off the plane, we along with many others missed our connecting flight. Based on the oh well attitude of the supposed manager at American Airlines/qantas I won't be taking qantas on my next trip."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and fairly attentive in business class. I had access to the First Class lounge in Sydney and it is wonderful. Even has a spa, though don't expect first class spa treatment. Uh, plane was clean and food was ok, but getting a cocktail was difficult."
Cons: "Business class seats are uncomfortable and there is nowhere to store and easily access something as simple as a book. There is a storage compartment on the seat in front of you, which you cannot reach without getting out of your seat.. While the seats do go flat, it's not something you can sleep on your side for long. Ended up reclined and sleeping on my back, which is not ideal. accessing my reservation was impossible and had to call Australia to get a seat assignment, which was reassigned by the time we checked in anyway. I care where I sit and book early to have choices. I hate to say it but I was not impressed."
Pros: "Food was better than expected. Appreciate the multiple snacks in the middle of the flight. Appreciated the 2nd cup of coffee in the morning. The crew serving the food had excellent customer service skills. The movies listed on the website were different than the actual flight. I really wanted to see a couple that weren't available."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that was disappointing that stands out to me."
Pros: "Qantas accommodated our 22 month old by providing us a seat in the middle, vacant. This was amazing and thoroughly appreciated."
Cons: "I asked for coffee after the first meal service but it never came."
Pros: "Crew was nice and offered extra drinks when asked."
Cons: "Screaming crying babies"
Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"
Pros: "The crew was helpful. Food was good. Really like the individual entertainment screens!"
Cons: "Sad because it was more crowded and we couldn't get by a window. On top of that, the sky cam must have been broken so we couldn't even watch from our screens. I won't travel on a Friday again. Would be nice to have a bit more leg room!"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly, food was great and the wide variety of entertainment offered made the 16+ hour flight go by quickly"
Cons: "Only downside was fellow travelers being inconsiderate."
Pros: "Big, safe plane. The pilot striving to land us close to the originally-scheduled time, even though we boarded the plane an hour late. He did it! A++ to Qantas for providing a spigot at the back of the plane to refill water bottles, thus lessening the amount of plastic used."
Cons: "I ordered vegetarian meals and they were TOO SPICY. Being served a flaming hot tomato curry and spicy potatoes for BREAKFAST was ridiculous."
Pros: "Inflight service."
Cons: "Headsets tend to fail. Is good that more than one were provided."
Pros: "Service was pleasant. Entertainment selections were quite nice -- great to have so many movies and music from which to choose."
Cons: "Dinner portions were insufficient -- a tiny box of food, though delicious, left me feeling hungry. Legroom was cramped -- As a 6'2" (188 cm) man, I always have request aisle seating but was given a middle row seat. These should be reserved for shorter passengers only who do not require many ups and downs from their seats during the flight. No one should have to pay to choose a seat ahead of time! Except Qantas, I've never seen an airline charge to choose a regular, non-premium seat. That is ridiculous to charge $30, especially when the airfare was over $1300."
Pros: "Smooth onboarding. By rows. Love that! Very professional and kind staff, ground and air crew! Delta is terrific!"
Pros: "Safe travel"
Cons: "more masks"
Pros: "The seats were extremely comfortable! I"
Pros: "The delta checkin desk were exceptional."
Cons: "Great crew!"
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and my luggage didn’t make the plane."
Cons: "You shouldn't schedule a flight for a plane that is due to have scheduled maintenance. It's not like this should come as a surprise to you. Also, there was at least one over-served passenger on board who became loud and obnoxious, shouting obscenities."
Pros: "The crew was great and the seat was good"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours delayed"
Pros: "the video controller in the headrest of the seat ahead of me. you could see the flight pattern, speed, temperature outside and other specs, which were interesting."
Cons: "once again, the delta crew does not maintain their planes properly. during the taxi stage to get to the airway to lift off, there was a horrendous growling sound coming from the plane............seems like their hydraulic system is not maintained very well at all and it made a howling sound throughout the plane all the way to take off! we were wondering if there was something wrong with the plane."
Pros: "Great Service and flight was without problems or delays. Arrived on time ."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment in my seat did not work properly so I could not enjoy watching movies or shows. A minor but unfortunate inconvenience."
Pros: "The plane and entertainment system was good. The cabin crew was a little slow. But all in all it was a good flight."
Cons: "Well for one my seat was broken. At the beginning of the flight they said “there are meals for purchase available” when i asked for one they said they were all out but then gave out to other customers. Their attitudes were horrible."
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Pros: "Early arrival. On time departure. Good selection of movies"
Pros: "Smooth and comfortable flight."
Pros: "The movies"
Pros: "Cabin crew super helpful & friendly. The food was great - all snacks & meals were well prepared and had great flavor, I’m not saying it’s a 5 star restaurant, but I was wasn’t expecting the quality we received. Great job! Impressed by Delta service."
Cons: "Traveling is always a challenge - abundance of patience required! We traveled from Dallas, Atlanta, Amsterdam, to Rome & back. Every country had a little different process for boarding and getting around - most had friendly staff, on point, helping clueless, stressed, & frustrated travelers. I was really disappointed in Atlanta, not a very welcoming or helpful spirit for visitors to US - not all (80% were awesome), mainly those trying to greet and direct through customs. Most hate the arrogant America anyway, don’t make it worse - put your best people on the front lines to help with international relations & show why the US is the best. Put those that don’t want to be here loading bags out back! Sorry for the lecture, but this is any business!"
Cons: "Turbulence but no one can help that"
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews cabin crews are very stingy in providing drinks"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great."
Cons: "Not much- pretty great flight"
Pros: "delayed flight by Skywest or West jet - Delta subsidiary / affiliate. it’s the 2nd flight in a row that’s delayed. but much better than American Airlines."
Cons: "Flight delays. At least flight was not cancelled. Boarding staff & flight crew were awesome and entertainment was superb."
Pros: "Nothing cause it didn't happen"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed so it didn't matter because the flught was delayed all the way til the next day."
Cons: "Delay was over an hour"
Pros: "Roomier than a lot of airplanes."
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Nobody's fault."
Pros: "Entertainment system, snacks and friendly crew members"
Cons: "Serious delays on flight. It was very tiring and became an all day affair."
Pros: "Seats were spacious"
Cons: "No entertainment, snacks were bad and plane was old."
Pros: "20 minutes ahead of schedule"
Cons: "They said it was late because of a tire issue that was fixed in Salt Lake causing a late departure on a round trip SLC-Burbank. It arrived back to Salt Lake late causing the Dallas flight to leave late. I got a message at 6:24 pm regarding the late departure for the 8:15 pm flight to Dallas. They knew this info hours before. It should have been communicated sooner"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I liked the legroom and the seat"
Cons: "No entertainment screen, no real food, I don’t care how long the trip is, I got first class, I expect first class service."

Pros: "On time with no drama"
Pros: "The lights where off to make it feel more homie, I liked that I had the seat to myself and the crew was nice."
Pros: "I appreciated that Delta was on time and prompt about getting passengers onboard. I appreciated that the stewardess was very courteous. I appreciated that there was no delay."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like. I had a previous bad experience with another airline that canceled my flight three days in a row. So I was very appreciative of the fact that Delta had available flights for me to leave."
Pros: "-forgot to charge me for wine"
Cons: "-chair was broken -tray was broken -had to spend $33 for wifi that didn't even work -didn't have everything they say they offer to guests on the flight"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, especially the attendant named Charlie. The cabin was also nice and cold. I hate getting too hot on planes so it was really nice that they had good AC going. Short trip overall and was very pleased!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
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 gauging"
Pros: "Departing on time and clean"
Cons: "There was no screens, all the other airlines have screens, but that wasn't my problem and I got coloring book and crayons for me daughter, so she can play with them, but my issue was that when they gave snack to everyone and I didn't get anything and then I told the other flight attendant that I didn't get my snack and still she didn't get it, she said she was going to get it and didn't come back :(( I was really disappointed with that, they r old and forget things, so our line 19 nobody got anything .. i like delta was I wasn't happy this time with it"
