Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "They had hand sanitizer wipes upon entering plane as well as one time use sanitizer pack included in their snack bag"
Pros: "The boarding was great and moved very well. The crew super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "More information on how to use the complimentary Wifi in the cabin. I had the app and it helped me but it’s not immediately in front of you so the passenger can decide. You guys offer WiFi in packages and most of the other airlines do not."
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The flight was on time, with no unanticipated problems."
Cons: "Traveling first class in the CRJ commuter planes is really just coach as it was 15 years ago."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and polite."
Cons: "Nothing needed to be done"
Pros: "Wow. I have been flying American and United for years. Delta is friendly, competent, professsional and enjoyable. They treated us like friends instead of like cattle. It was great! Great job Delta. Oh, and for the first time in 50 years of flying my bags arrived sky first. Yes! They get it!"
Cons: "Perfect experience. Well done. Treat people like friends. Simple. Works."
Pros: "On time departure and smooth landing"
Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"
Pros: "The crew served things exactly as scheduled. They went out of their way to help passengers individually."
Cons: "The seats are a bit cramped for long international flights."
Pros: "Delta Premium Economy (or whatever it's called) is definitely a step up. Food is pretty good and seats leave more room, so you don't feel crunched."
Cons: "First seat (no chance to put thngs underneath seat in front) MUST have a real space (as even economy generally has). There was a small pouch that would fit almost nothing. Staff was poor. Never a smile or friendliness from flight attendant and no help when asked."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Pros: "got there on time, no delays. very smooth"
Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."
Pros: "The crew on the airplane was great. We had 2.5 hours turbulences but the crew started to give out drinks as soon they got the ok from the pilot"
Cons: "We went in LGA to the Baggage drop off and the employee there was super rude. On the flight to New York with Delta we had to check our carry ons at the gate because it wasn't enough room for bags in the airplane.so we asked when we checked our one suitcase if we can/should check our carry ons to avoid having to do it at the gate. The delta employee told me sure no problem. He checks in my one suitcase I purchased gives me the tracking paper and says ok have a good flight. I asked him so what is with our carry ons and he told us that that would cost 25$ and we can't check those in at the drop off?!?We ended up taking the carry ons with to the gate and then off course there wasn't enough room on the airplane that we had to check it in. And surprise it was free?? We had never issues with Lufthansa, icelandair etc. with checking our bags at drop off to not needing to carry it around and than still end up to check it at the airplane. Every airline has been more than happy that we volunteer to check our bags that they don't have the trouble at the gate."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "Excellent check in and boarding service"
Cons: "Cleaning of the airplane could be done better"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Our flight arrived ahead of schedule and the crew was great. Quick boarding although due to weather we were a bit late boarding aircraft however made up for lost time."
Cons: "The aircraft was a bit warm and there was no ice for beverages which were warm"
Cons: "yet another oversold and crammed into a plane flight from delta. the crew were nice and all...but the passengers were all ready to be throw into a battle royal pit to actually get on the plane. Getting real tired of this"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Overall the flight was good. It would be nice to see if we are Lincoln and Wi-Fi and the greatest selection of movies to its offerings."
Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."
Cons: "It is the first time that I travel by this airline and I have a bad experience. The flight was delayed by 2 hours and before arriving at Los Angeles airport they informed us that they had not been provided with the migration forms."
Pros: "In some Delta flights that I had in the past the plane was just ok, not bad, not good. But this plane ATL-MEX was great, very nice and conformable plane, it looks and feels excellent!"
Cons: "Got in early"
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"
Pros: "Great flight ... food better than average, but movie selections were terrible"
Cons: "Movies bad selection."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working for a while and it was a plane without screens"
Pros: "The entertainment is good; several new movies"

Cons: "timming of the flight"

Cons: "See above description"
Pros: "Delta provided a superior experience!"
Cons: "Agents at the ticketing countet were the rudest i have ever encountered in my years of flying. Had a problem and when i asked for their assistance was given the Delta 800 number and told to call and they walked off. When i called it was a 2 hour wait for an agent. Thank goodness for their app as i was able to.change my flight with the My Delta app. Also they had overbooked the flight and rather than giving assurance to people just told us to wait and "line up orderly"."
Pros: "Worst experience ever."
Cons: "While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again."
Cons: "No food on a coast to coast flight, outrageous drink prices and a crew that didn't fit in the aisle. Searched at the gate and was sorry I. Am back in America!!!"
Pros: "Great flight easy boarding"
Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"
Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."
Pros: "Great food and service. Great entertainment. Really comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and it wasn't communicated very well."
Pros: "Plane took off and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seats are terrible with not enough leg room. My knees were pushed up into the seat ahead with no room to reposition or move."
Cons: "The rubber chicken in first class was awful. Drinks and wine were good. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Check in was slow, I had to pay $130 for 4lbs of overweight bag, $200 to change a flight, they screwed up the first change and almost charged $200 more until I asked them to review the “quality assurance” call, the flight was delayed because they had to find a new crew, and again because of a part."
Pros: "Crew was nice, easy to use entertainment, smooth boarding"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable, no pillow/blanket, poor “snacks”"
Cons: "Literally lazy United Airlines caused this entire trip to be 3.5 hours late. Rote incompetence from UA. And they were rude about it too."
Pros: "One attendant did it all. And very well. Impressive."
Cons: "More snack options."
Pros: "We landed 30 minutes early! Hooray!"
Cons: "The plane was not clean, tray table was covered in crumbs. During beverage service, flight attendant handed me a can that was so filthy I had to wrap it in a napkin to keep from touching the surface again and use hand sanitizer to get the residue off my fingers."
Pros: "The crew at Mexico airport was very helpful and polite."
Pros: "Has a great crew on this flight..."
Cons: "You really should include some form of entertainment... at least sitcoms or the news..."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable despite long distance"
Cons: "Food service could have been better timed as we had breakfast around noon local time"
Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."
Pros: "Safe travel"
Cons: "Cramped and warm"
Cons: "Like so many others, my flight was delayed. This was due to the scheduled pilot calling in."
Cons: "Mechanical delay on this leg left us in a hot plane on a hot Texas tarmac. We were initially told it would take 15-20 minutes but this incrementally grew to 1-1/2 hours. Even when we were told that we were pushing away from the gate, we didn't move for another 15 minutes. At least tell the truth. Only water offered. Observed flight attendant moving cups along baggage bins.... Don't know if these were the ones he then served water in."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "Long lines for boarding. Had to stand too long. Food and entertainment cost and cost too much."
Pros: "I was happy to be able to get a flight on a flight that offered free entertainment through the United Mobile app. I just don't understand why your airline doesn't offer free internet and entertainment. It seems like a small price to pay to keep your passengers comfortable. Get with the program and the rest of the industry."
Cons: "Once again, United first changed my flight which increased my layover from a little over an hour to three hours, and then our flight was delayed by three hours, making our total layover time over six hours. United does this more than any other major airline. I am actually considering switching my United Mileage plus credit account to one of your competitors."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very tight. Not food except snack."
Pros: "Easy, no probs. Clean & on time."
Cons: "Nuttin. All good."
Cons: "Same orice as the old economy tickets, but less benefits. - No carry on - No online check in - total confusion at check in counters because of the additional rush of people trying to check in - unhelpful united staff"
Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"
Cons: "Delayed of 5 hours without much information. Huge line to passport control By United which i have never seen before."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The flights were late and annoying"
Pros: "at security line the man was friendly and directed me to correct personnel when flight delayed so i could fly standby and not miss my ride at other end. then when i returned to go through security he helped get me in correct line so i could clear in tine all the while friendly and cheerful."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable."
Cons: "As I walked on the plane, the crew members standing at the entrance didn't greet me, I had to greet them first. The same issue occurred as I exited the plane. Also the 3 hour layover wasn't fun."
Pros: "The flight seemed a little more steady and more drinks were offered."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was a little better, but when it came time for me to use the restroom, the flight attendant was quite rude. I explained I had been waiting for the past 2 hours but she didn't seem to care. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Flight left late"
Pros: "Thankful for safe landing , staff was fine."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, plan was leaking something that was discovered when we were taxiing from gate. 1hr 10 min delay"
Pros: "New flight was direct fromChicago to Portland"
Cons: "12 hours late."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Cons: "They kept delaying this flight but not telling us. First it was delayed to 6:50; at 6:51 I asked whether it was further delayed and was told no, we were about to board. Five minutes later the screen said 7:15 (and later, 7:35); at no point was there any announcement about these further delays. They then stowed carry-on luggage below, so passengers lost access to any entertainment in their carry-on. There was no entertainment on board."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "Flight crew were extremely courteous, helpful and gracious. I wish the ground crew were half as good as the flight crew."
Cons: "The boarding experience was very. The boarding lady was, in my opinion, racist. First I requested to have seats reassigned if possible, since I was traveling with my brother and we bought the same ticket but were assigned different seats. The lady was extremely rude. The flight was 2/3 full so this shouldn't have been an issue. On they Chicago to Nairobi flight we asked the same question and the lady was extremely helpful and pleasant. Secondly, I bought a bottle of Whisky from Nairobi airport. Frankfurt airport refused to allow me to continue with it. They insisted on having it checked it, which can only happen outside the airport. I gave it my brother to check in, but he was delayed. While people were boarding I told staff that I would wait and see if he could make it aboard. Suddenly the lady said that he is 'high risk' because he left the secure part of the airport and he will not be on the flight and off too because I said I was waiting. The other 2 check - in personnel stepped in and were helpful. The gave me a couple of minutes to decide if I wanted to board the plane because the would have to pull my bags off the plane if I decided not to board. This one racist lady ruined the entire boarding experience. I wish I had taken note of her name. I doubt that I will transit through Frankfurt or use Lufthansa by choice ever again."
Pros: "Had a great seat on the plane Missed my next flight the service people were very helpful getting me connections to my destination"
Cons: "delayed because of weather in Denver"
Cons: "We had a 2+ hour delay after boarding and prior to takeoff due to some combination of a problem with the auxiliary power unit and rerouting requiring additional refueling. No air conditioning and very hot environment for most of this time. The crew was visibly upset by the delays and repeatedly blamed the local groundcrew/staff while doing very little to make the passengers more comfortable. It took >1hr for them to pass water. No apologies. No effort during flight to make up for the discomfort (eg free wifi access). Very frustrating experience."
Cons: "I was flying from Pittsburgh to Chicago to Fairbanks. My flight from Pittsburgh was delayed. My connecting flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was in the very next gate. But as I exited my first flight, my connecting flight pulled away from the gate. I was extremely disappointed."
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants that they were courteous and helpful"
Cons: "I am a fearful flyer and that is putting it mildly. I didn't like that the pilot didn't introduce himself and talk to us about the flight."
Pros: "I did like that I had an open seat next to me. But not really much else"
Cons: "It was the only flight without entertainment. And it was the longest flight so I was completely bored. They didn't offer snacks and by the time the stewardess got to my row the for sale snack j was interested in was sold out."
Pros: "United's flight crew was very courteous and accomodating. At a time where customer service overall has taken a noticeable step back in most industries, it was nice to receive good service. Especially considering I was traveliing with my family of five (3 kids under 11)."
Cons: "While I understand this is not specific to United Airlines, I've flown now for about 40 years and this incessant need to monetize EVERYTHING on a flight is just frustrating. I am a 6'2", fit man and I'm not able to get a coach seat with leg room without paying an additional premium...in BOTH directions of my flight. This is after paying to check my FIRST bag...but before paying for any food or entertaiment i want to consume during the 3:45+ flight. Yes, charge for WI-FI; charge for alcoholic beverages, charge for OVERWEIGHT baggage. Charging for food and other items which were complementary 10 to 15 years ago is insulting."
Pros: "Has aisle seat so I could stretch one leg."
Cons: "Was crammed in the back with not enough knee room. I'm not overweight, (5'11", 200 lbs) people (including flight attendant kept banging into me as they went past. 1 flight attendant (middle-aged man) obnoxious. Lots of empty seats in the "economy plus" section, once flight was in motion...attendant refused to let anyone move. United obviously shortened up the leg room and space towards the back of the plane to make room for "economy plus" then just left those seats empty when passengers refused to pay the additional $170 (what obnoxious flight attendant said) to sit there. I will look for other carriers..."
Cons: "On a flight as long as this one was it should have included FREE use of the movies, TV shows, the entertainment feature ."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Very quick! :) nice pilot"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "You switched me to an earlier flight without asking is confirming with me. I almost missed the flight, had to check my bag at the gate, and started out my morning scrambling to get to the airport and through security. No one at united could tell me why it was changed. Un believable. This is not the kind of surprise that is welcomed or appreciated."
Cons: "Middle Seat"
Cons: "I was unable to make the first flight and called a week in advance to change the first flight. I understood I would lose out on that but wanted to keep the return flight. I planned to buy a one way ticket out. Kayak and the airline both refused to assist and affirmed I would lose the return ticket if I failed to shoe for the initial flight. I had to buy a whole new round trip ticket."
Pros: "Booked on kayak, assigned a middle seat with a lap infant (ridiculous!) There were no aisle or window seats available but gate agent was able to move us to a bulkhead so at least we had enough leg room to accommodate us both. Thank you United, but thumbs down to auto seat assignments."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Small.plane, nasty sweet snack! Geez are peanuts that much more expensive!?"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The asian snack"
Pros: "No delays! First time that's happened in a while! So easy!"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "This is not just in United but other air lines as well, when we are enjoying a movie or trying to sleep The volume on the intercome is very loud n there's way too many words that we don't need to hear so it will make a shorter making less talk time on the intercome."
Cons: "There was food on my seat and a cell phone from the flight attendant."
