Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The flight attendants have so much patience, it’s amazing. Because passengers are idiots."
Cons: "Do you really need to charge every person to pick their seat?"
Pros: "Flight was good and crew were good. Nothing very outstanding but by no means a terrible flight."
Cons: "The in flight screens weren't working well."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was awesome. I was able to watch NFL games the entire flight which made the flight go by super quick. Our flight was also ahead of schedule which was great as well."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight together. I didn't even have enough room to put my laptop on my lap."
Pros: "Very helpful and professional crew, despite some pretty snarky passengers. Seemed to go out of their way to accommodate everyone."
Cons: "Bigger seats would have been nice, but these were okay. Changing planes at JFK was tight due to late departure from Atlanta, but it worked out. Overall, no complaints and I would fly Delta again given the opportunity and choice. Thanks!"
Pros: "The staff handled the situation very well."
Cons: "The delays put me arriving at 4am. Missed a half day of work, and was practically useless the last half of the day. I understand things go wrong, but they blamed the weather and the other airlines were getting planes in and out just fine. Even Frontier Airlines at least offers a meal voucher for del"
Pros: "The crew and staff were friendly. The flight was full so they checked our bag at no additional charge."
Cons: "They had no earphones for the flight from Cancun."
Cons: "I’m still in Los Angeles 10 hours after landing, having missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was some of the best I’ve ever had."
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."
Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "Not much. Just a cattle cart to go from here to there. Let's not pretend."
Cons: "boarding process."
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: "Nothing more to say!"
Pros: "Overall ok."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing."
Pros: "Every aspect of this trip with Delta was super! We were on time, a bit early even. The flight was smooth and comfortable."

Cons: "Food wasn’t great. What’s new?"
Pros: "On time. Great service. Good breakfasr"
Pros: "Fairbanks airport small and cozy, very easy to hear boarding announcements. There were two seats in our row and behind us that had been assigned to more than one person. The flight attendants were very quick and resourceful in solving the issue to everyone’s satisfaction."
Cons: "I srill dislike the idea of purchasing food and paying baggage fees separately from the tickets. Creates inconvenience as well as at least three separate transactions, increasing your exposure to possible credit card data theft."
Pros: "Liked that they were pretty stern about boarding by zone Comfy seats Nice staff Good snacks Great movie selection Never realized games were programmed in that head rest. Loved that. Just having the entertainment set on the head rest for every seat makes me prefer this airline over another."
Cons: "Was seated in the last row, 33, and it smelled like urine. Landed on time at 11:09am but didn't get to the jetway til 11:50"
Pros: "Best Delta flight so far."

Pros: "Too crowded overhead storage got filled right away. Had to place my bag under seat. Could not extend my legs."

Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"

Cons: "Standing in line for 5 hours without knowing what I'll be able to do. My entire body still hurts!"
Pros: "We upgraded to Delta Comfort, since the flight was a bit longer. I'm glad we did; it made a great deal of difference to have the extra space. The in-flight entertainment (individual displays on the backs of each seat) was excellent, the crew was excellent, and the flight was extremely smooth."
Cons: "There is just not enough leg room for a flight that long and the seats don't recline enough to be comfortable unless you upgrade and the tickets were already overpriced."
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
