Pros: "Because delate"

Pros: "Service was excellent"

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy. The flight attendants were great and the plane was newer which was nice."
Cons: "The gate changed shortly before boarding was to start. When we got to the gate (the original one we had on our ticket), there were few people at the gate and we asked the desk agent if we were in the right place. He told us we were so we waited. We were concerned and when we went to ask the agent again to confirm, he has left the desk. The new gate was only just next door. luckily we made it, but it would have been nice to have received a text message or email that the gate had changed."

Pros: "Very controlled and safe Covid procedures. Outlets and screens at every seat."

Cons: "Had no entertainment, asked the attendent, she called simebody, but it didn't help and she didn't bother to come and explain. Food was really bad, undercooked and cold."

Pros: "Good variety and quality meals during the flight as well as a super array of entertainment"
Cons: "The seats lack cushion so a 7 hour flight gets quite painfully after a while"

Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "Everything except the delay was fine, not extraordinary."
Cons: "7-hour flight delay. If this was a European flight we would have been entitled to at least $250 for our inconvenience. We were not offered anything to compensate us for a 7hour delay, which was ridiculous."

Pros: "Was boarded promptly"

Cons: "WiFi"

Cons: "Flight cancelled with no reasonable alternative. Ended up driving."

Pros: "Good crew, kind and hard working staff. It is so nice to have inflight messaging and that was a pleasant surprise that made the flight go quickly."
Cons: "I found the delta app to be less user friendly than the United one. I wish the in flight entertainment were in the Delta app versus downloading yet another app."

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The flight and crew were great. But I was not able to choose my seat because I purchased an economy flight. I was very uncomfortable. But I was luck that that people that were sitting with me were great."

Cons: "After my flight was delayed for over 3 hrs - the counter clerk was rude and unhelpful. She felt it was appropriate for her to flick the customer service phone number in front of my teenage daughters. I would say avoid Delta!"

Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Smooth and comfortable flight."
Cons: "Seats are not as comfortable as usual, yet all flights seem to be getting worse regarding seat comfort. Time to start replacing."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the service on Delta. The entire process was better than what i've come to expect on airlines. My flight attendant was Kate, and she was awesome - super friendly, professional, thoughtful."

Pros: "Inflight experience was fine. TVs didn’t work but Flight attendants are friendly on Delta, cramped seating - but not unlike other airlines."
Cons: "Regular fare seat assignment not available prior to gate . Airport concourse F - poor - limited services. Customer Service seemed uninterested and unable to provide service both on phone and at gate. I’m a frequent United flyer & today’s Delta service experience made me more loyal to UA."

Pros: "I did get home eventually"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are cramped."

Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."

Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."

Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"

Cons: "Was unclear which zone was boarding. Legroom was comprised when passenger in immediate row ahead reclined seat early in flight."

Pros: "Awesome selection of movies"
Cons: "The seats are too close together, they do not recline far enough and the leg room is minimal"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"

Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"

Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."

Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."

Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."

Pros: "Able to download boarding pass into apple wallet"
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing, bag is a carry on but storage too small to keep bag, then wifi didn't work the entire flight. Had to run to our connection since our layover time was taken up in Boise. If we had missed the flight, we would have been re-routed to another airport over 1 1/2 hrs away since ours closes. Next flight was not much better, oh and wifi did I t work on it also - last 3-4 delta flights I've taken have been late and didn't have working wifi - starting to think their system doesn't work at all - seriously going to take any other carrier but Delta going forward"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"

Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"

Cons: "My suitcase came without a wheel. Damaged luggage."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."

Cons: "Paid $28 for a Wi-Fi package that didn't work. No refund...."

Pros: "Smooth flight."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."

Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."

Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was pretty good for airplane food."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare, no announcements were made in English so half of the passengers were confused. The seats were sooo uncomfortable."

Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"

Pros: "I liked the fact that they have a train to take you from one concourse to another!"
Cons: "Very busy airport! Boarding was delayed and flight was overbooked. I wasn't too happy but it could've been worse."

Pros: "Overall flight experience was excellent - no delays!"
Cons: "As always, Delta has very little room to store anything in pullback seat back of seat in front of passenger seat."

Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"

Pros: "This time the tea was nice and hot!"

Cons: "Snacks if possible"

Pros: "Nice snacks for such a short trip...most airlines have abandoned this for short trips. Clean and spacious cabin"
Cons: "Freezing cold in the cabin"

Pros: "Length of flight was good, one of the flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendant arguing and having words with a passenger BEFORE the flight even took off was very alarming, the attendant had walked past the seat, we saw her face change, she halted and walked back to the passenger and a very heated and negative exchange ensued, then another flight attendant came out and threatened to evict the passenger from the flight, this was before the flight even took place .... all passengers were like just remove them already ... t his is a short flight and most of use were connecting from a long flight from overseas ...."

Cons: "Dirty windows. Could not see out window. I have a photo if requested. I am 6'4" the plane was small cramped and uncomfortable."

Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
