Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great, flight in general was okay"
Cons: "The plane itself and seating was filthy, some unknown substance fell on me from the vent above, there was a bunch of crumbs in the seat buckle that fell out all over my lap when I fastened it. I'm not sure the tray table was wiped down, or at least not very well. The in-flight tracker was completely incorrect, I was on a 4-hour flight and it read 14 hours and counting throughout."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Delta check in was HORRIBLE! I was charged for a bag check in and had to take my bag through security and they threw away my cologne and razors."
Pros: "The movies were good on the plane."
Cons: "Everything! I was given a wheelchair, wheeled to a spot and told to stay there. I waited over an hour. I couldn’t get thru customs and security alone and I had to ask a non employee to help me the whole time, I was then yelled at by an employee because they didn’t think I was handicapped at the gate"
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: "The 2 bathrooms in the rear are VERY narrow. I'm average size and barely fit. Also, the waiting area in terminal 3 at LAX is very crowded and noisy and the options for charging portable devices is minimal. I will definitely avoid Delta if I have to go through LAX."

Pros: "Good flight attendants.."
Pros: "Inflight Service is great"

Pros: "Excellent leg room. Comfy seat"
Cons: "Seat couldn't recline back. Was a little uncomfortable for a long flight. Chair had crumbs on it before I sat down-it was easily wiped away meaning no one had cleaned the chairs or looked at them beforehand. Absolutely freezing. Wearing long socks and boots and my feet still felt frozen by the end."
Cons: "Boarding was not smooth. They got me and my son mixed up as we have same name."
Pros: "i liked the aircraft and the fact that you could watch movies on your phone!"
Cons: "you couldn't hear the staff when they started boarding the plane"
Pros: "Smooth, quick and comfortable flight."
Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Great Food. Good entertainment. I recommend the aisle seat if you have to go top the bathroom frequently. :-) I felt that the flight attendants were concerned about our comfort on the flights."
Cons: "I would have liked more of a music and movie selection."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."
Pros: "I love being on a smaller plane/jet! Boarding was painless and I had no problems with my two small bags. Due to a mix-up in seating, I had both seats to myself! We even got in will before the scheduled time! De-boarding took far less time than "regular" plane/jet!!!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and gave great service."
Cons: "Legroom was poor, Im 6' tall and my knees were rubbing the seat in front. Flight was full so no alternate."
Pros: "Free movies helped the time fly by. Stewardess, or whatever the PC word us now, Britt was awesome"
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very polite helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Can't change the weather. Flight was delayed a bit but they were very informative as they found out info."
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."
Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Cons: "New design of the the plane with side to side bathrooms at the back leaves much to be desired. Those were the smallest airplane bathrooms I've ever used!! I had trouble fitting and I'm not a large person!"
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Cons: "No leg room, seats vastly too narrow"
