Pros: "The staff are friendly and passengers quickly get on and off the plane."
Cons: "I travel this route (ATL - MGM) often and it seems like half the time I use Delta there is an issue with the plane including times when the flight has been cancelled. This time the plane left the gate and some fifteen minutes after sitting on the tarmac was taken back to the gate. The issue was said to be an element that keeps a sensor from freezing in extreme cold weather. The less than one hour flight took two hours to complete. This should have been dealt with as a maintenance issue but Delta doesn't seem to think so. The planes on this route make Delta a LOT of money as it is one of the most profitable routes in the US. You would think Delta could invest in keeping better maintained planes on the route."

Pros: "I got a good seat from LA to GTA on 1st jan. it was in the front and spacious and I was also served food."

Cons: "it is a shame that for an international trip, with a "superspecial rate" of almost 700 USD. We still had to pay to register 1 piece of luggage. Why are these flights NOT considered international and allow at least one piece of registered luggage? They seem to be considered international when it comes to the ticket price."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"

Pros: "Boarding was easy, flights on time Wi-Fi available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "Seats rather crowded in coach, small plane so it was also a bit noisy"

Pros: "The flight was run through Delta out of Seattle, and the crew was friendly and very helpful, as it was initially somewhat confusing how to check in for the flight online via WestJet's site - but the check-in agents and gate agents quickly clarified! The flight also boarded and departed mostly on time, and the onboard wifi was great."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing to check in online, as the WestJet site doesn't list Seattle as a departure city and then it took several different input attempts before Delta's site found my WestJet flight info."

Pros: "The entertainment was great!"
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my seat."

Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. I have been traveling 13 hours and am still not in London."

Cons: "The seating. Isn't that always the case. Buy a standard seat and be squished like you don't matter - just an afterthought - and if you wanted better, spend another $100 bucks or so. Add to that insult the fact that my wife and I couldn't even sit together because we couldn't choose seats until we arrived at the airport. Really."

Pros: "Fairly comfortable, seated in an exit row. It was an early flight on an A319. Always nice to have free seat back entertainment. Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat is the smallest business seat I have ever encountered. First and last time I fly the 767 with Delta. Can't believe the designers where so stupid"
