Beverage service was lacking…
My biggest complaint about this flight wasn't with Delta itself, but with the man next to me who half way through the flight decided he didn't need to wear his mask anymore. With so many headlines in the news of people going insane on flights about wearing masks, I wasn't about to ask him to put it on. I was disgusted by his lack of concern for the law and the health of those travelers around him. I know that Delta Flight Attendants did not sign up to be the mask police, but I really wish someone would have told him to put a mask on. People like him are ruining what would have otherwise been a really great flight/traveling experience. I'm happy Delta is bringing back meals on longer flights (in first class). The food was good but I am excited for the day when actual meal service returns. Maybe when people like my seat mate start wearing their masks and following the rules we can go back to having nice things.

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all."
Pros: "Maria in Winnipeg tried to find me decent connections. She did book me into a hotel in Boston as I missed connection 3 times!!!!"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "More food choices, but what we had was good."
Pros: "There were a few hiccups with the overall flight process, but the crew was very friendly and informed everyone in a timely manner of the situation. There were also good snacks. Also, flexible baggage policy, which was great."
Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."
Cons: "Freezing flight! So cold. From Atlanta to Pensacola in June, one should not freeze."
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Crew and food"

Pros: "The crew was excellent"

Pros: "My first perfect Delta flight. No issues. No delays. Excellent customer service. What more could you ask for"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The fact I arrived safely"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline"
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Cons: "They wouldn’t accommodate with seating and I couldn’t sit with the people I came with. Also they served almonds and I’m allergic. The guy sitting next to me requested almonds causing my eyes to swell and my throat to close"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Crowded waiting area and plane. Awful on plane!"
Pros: "Everything went well...on time, quick boarding and free gate check of bag."
Pros: "The service and snack selection is better than the other large US carriers. Delta studio is a decent replacement for the lack of PTVs on these planes."
Cons: "Delta offers a decent product on most of their fleet but the 717 or MD-88/90 can be extremely loud at the back of the plane. You better bring ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones and learn to read the flight attendants lips."
Pros: "The in flight movie and fast boarding"
Cons: "Couldn't get a receipt for baggage fee"
Pros: "The flight was practically empty!"
Cons: "Paid for comfort, Delta offered free drinks to everyone. Unfortunately though the flight attendant did not bring us the alcohol we ordered and mixed 3 different kinds of whiskey into two glasses! We always are given our bottles separate from the mixer. Oh well. Did to being in so late it took us an hour to get a cab in Detroit."
Pros: "Wouldn't know wasn't able to make it to the flight"
Cons: "The fact that for the second time in 2 months Delta issues kept me from making my flight"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not anything"
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, arrived early! Boarding was smooth and effortless. I absolutely don't mind paying a little extra to fly on Delta vs the "low cost" carriers. Thanks Delta!"
Pros: "Meal quality has improved"
Pros: "Wide-bodied aircraft; free on-board entertainment with a good selection; complimentary snacks, helpful staff"
Cons: "Waiting 45 mins for baggage to arrive on the carousel at LAX, but probably due to the terminal move currently happening and not the airline's fault."
Pros: "One male attendant from the first class cabin - super sweet and attentive to our needs even tho we're not seating in the premium cabin"
Cons: "Junior attendants in economy comfort seat - so lazy and whiny!"
Pros: "Bulkhead seats - logos legroom"
Cons: "Very long boarding process - security checks and a long walk from connecting flight"
Pros: "The customer service was great, the crew was great, the flight was great, everything was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Pros: "Nice chairs with built in pillows. J"
Pros: "Delta has failed in trying to break into the Aspen market. Their "personal ground crew" was hapless. Half the passenger bags didn't make it on to the plane. When we checked in the ticketing agent was randomly stacking bags in a heap behind her, and not putting them on the conveyor belt. The flight attendant was loud and screechy, saying that it was easier to leave off the bags than take people off the plane. What?? How was this not accounted for before the flight. On the way out, they forgot to build in time to de-ice the plane. SMH"
Pros: "Wonderful staff, very helpful after our plane was diverted"
Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"
Cons: "Seat(19c) is in a position that due to its design causes it to be bumped into continously throughout the flight... I lost track of the amount of times I got jostled by passengers and crew. May want to rethink the use of that seat. They ran out of food. Had to wait over 30 min on the tarmac before being able to deplane."
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Cons: "Missed my connection due to excessive delay at Heathrow"
Cons: "never made it to this flight."
Pros: "Michael DJ was awesome! Made us laugh during the safety demonstration which was much appreciated on a long travel time home!"
Cons: "The descent down to the airport was rough. I felt it was done too quickly, caused a lot of pressure on my head and was very painful"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Communicating rules such as not going through the business class to loop around to the other aisle of the coach class is definitely acceptable however the tone in communicating this should never sound condescending and patronizing, esp over the PA. Flight staff shld refine her communication skills."
Pros: "In flight entertainment and mood lighting"
Cons: "No delays and not having someone taking up my seat"
Pros: "On time flight, efficient, friendly crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "I was told that 30 minutes is plenty of time to make a connection at DCA. However in order to make a connection there you need to take a bus across the tarmac. The bus sat on the tarmac loading up with way too many people for 10+ min… Almost missed our connection"
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle and the plane was extremely uncomfortable for a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Boarding was on time, flight was smooth overall. Arrived at destination on time."

Pros: "Easy to board. Comfortable seats. Very kind flight crew."
Cons: "Great flight great crew. Only issue was something was wrong with the entertainment system on my seat. Never worked"
Pros: "Easy boarding crew were friendly food was hot"
Cons: "Seating was a pain to try and get 2 seats together even though I booked it months in advance very noisy rude people couldn't sleep on a supposed overnight am exhausted"
Pros: "Entertainment offered several options to choose from"
Cons: "Food, only one beverage was offered"
Pros: "It was 1 in the morning in the Philadelphia airport and I had an 8 hour layover and there were no vending machines available and an airport worker went and got me a drink and some chips and would not take any payment. I call that going above and beyond his job duties. Very pleasant man."
Cons: "They layover was a little much and to get one with a better time was $300.00 and all I wanted to do was get to Watertown NY to see my grandkids."
Pros: "seats are very uncomfortable I know they can make a plane with a wide enough aisle so that you don't get hit in the arm every time the cart or anyone goes past you. why can I ride a twin otter and not need a seat belt extender and need one on American? On the return on the Airbus, the seats were a little more comfortable, but still need seatbelt extender."
Cons: "My husband started coughing really badly. I rang the call button to see if a flight attendant would come and maybe help me. Eventually, after about 6 minutes, he managed to control his breathing and still no flight attendant to be seen. Only after 20 minutes while distributing the meals, one of the attendants shuts the call sign of and continues. This is not the service we usually get from Avianca!"
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "No food."
Cons: "It was a little hot in the plane at during start and touchdown"
Pros: "New equipment. Film choices, crew, complementary beverages"
Pros: "We landed 8 minutes early although we left 20 min late"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment on a small plane"
Cons: "Delayed over two hrs due to mech. Known long befire scheduled departure according to pilot. Did not know why alt plane was not provided sooner! Not best airline as claimed!"
Pros: "We got great service and the food was not bad. Additionally, we got lots of free wine!"
Cons: "We were not able to check in online or pick our seats until we actually got to the airport."
Pros: "All I want is clear communication- not strung along. Reasonably comfortable seat - without person next to me too large for seat. Don't gate check my bag then I find plenty of space above my seat. Stop giving people food and drink on short flights as it is unnecessary and it constrains use of the bathroom"
Cons: "The scene of returning bags at the gate of arrival is awkward and other passengers take advantage - blocking walkway etc. please change system and adt a baggage handler to drop bags in a line along one side of the gateway while passengers wait along other side of the gateway"
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Pros: "Arrived very early"
Cons: "Had to wait for pilot coming from Mexico flight for 20 mins after everyone boarded"
Pros: "Quick boarding and luggage pickup."
Cons: "Mediocre staff. In my experience United is more friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Pros: "I liked the ease of the gate for the airplane."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The airline did not offer a complimentary headphones, and failr sure the wifi was not even working. Also was not that big of a fan with the extra long layover. Was not a fan of the extra time in the holding pattern above Indianapolis, nor the extra time 150 feet from the gate after we landed."
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The 10:50 PM flight was delayed beyond midnight with no prior indication. The reason given was the flight from Dallas delayed due to weather. This looks childish. Why not pay for inconvenience. Is our time and hardship so invaluable?"
Pros: "•Boarding was easy - small plane. •No crazy flight maneuvers, so I guess good pilots"
Cons: "•Cash only for drinks?! C'mon AA, it's 2017. •Charging for checked bags is greedy, I don't care if others do it, that's not a good excuse + Southwest doesn't charge. •Plane left 30 min late (and arrived 30 late), then had to sit on Tarmac waiting for a gate. •Placed us at the farthest bagged claim from our arrival gate (all bagge claims walking up to ours were empty), so thanks for thinking of the customer first there. •I reserved an aisle seat, they changed me to window without asking. Thanks. •Overall, there are too many other choices in airlines... I may just be one customer, but this is one less they'll have, as other major carriers haven't ever racked up this amount of annoyances in a single trip with me before."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash!"
Cons: "Never on time leaving/getting there, gates unavailable on landing, 40 minute wait for luggage, plane not working, lost important meeting in Rome, placed me in a dump hotel on worse area of Phili, surprised I got out of there alive.... I can write a book!"
Pros: "Flight attendant, Billy, on flight to Chicago encouraged everyone to help each other figure out how to manage close connection times due to a long delay leaving Charlottesville. He then arranged for folks with short times to move forward. We would never have made our connection without him. Gate agents also kept the door open for us as we dashed to our connecting flight and hustled us on board. Amazingly the ground crew also got our luggage transferred in the short 10 minutes we had. Thank you American!"
Pros: "Delays. Gate changes on both flights."
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late . It was in the hsngar. They said they were fixing the plane. It was an old plane. No Screen anywhere . It was 5.5 flight across country. Only pretzels. I will try not to fly American again."
Pros: "She was absolutely marvelous. So friendly and professional. A welcome change to most encounters with with AA employees."
Cons: "Did not get to finish the movie I was watching on my first flight and movies were not offered on this flight."
Pros: "Wasn't over booked"
Cons: "No entertainment no offer to up grade"
Cons: "When I noticed on the itinerary that the layover only gave me 35 minutes I knew it would be a problem. I missed my flight and never got to Pensacola . AA staff were not very Empathetic. It seems to happen often. I'm in a hotel and praying that my flight leaves today."
Pros: "Having free entertainment again is very nice!!"
Cons: "Delayed once again, at least it was only about 30 minutes and I didn't have a connecting flight to worry about. Leg room was absolutely horrendous!!! Newer model plane and zero room for my legs."
Pros: "Only one word can be used to describe my experiences with American Airlines: seamless. From beginning to end, my trip with American Airlines was a relaxing experience."
Pros: "It was fine. I was comfortable and I slept throat most of it."
Cons: "I could have driven to NJ faster than the flights took."
Pros: "The lady with one hand was very nice."
Cons: "waiting for 2 1/2 hours totally sucks. waiting an extra 2 1/2 hours, there was a hour and a half layover already so that just going to add it to it. Overall it was a 12 hour travel day and that was a bit long"
I hate 737 MAX 9 aircraft. I know what a sardine feels like. At least they are fast.
Pros: "All my expectations were met"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Could have slept in for another couple of hours!!:"
Pros: "Everything except the turbulence"
Cons: "less turbulenceE"
Cons: "It sucked in many ways. But that wasn't united's fault. The weather was threatening lightning in Denver and of course because of that the world stops turning."
Pros: "The crew was really nice. Flight was quicker than expected."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable. Boarding process should be more organization. Snacks could be way better."
Pros: "Crew is friendly. Flight is on time. Nothing is surprise"
Cons: "The headset plug outlet were not fitting well (very loose) and provide very poor connection. Toilet is dirty after awhile and always busy."
Cons: "Can’t get an update on lost bags really poor service"
Pros: "Crew flight attendant was nice the whole trip. Other places they aren't always so warm or nice when you leave. Flight was pretty."
Cons: "Nobody was checking tickets for checked bags we deboarded."
Pros: "Boarding went very well. Seats were good."
Cons: "We missed our next flight due to being called back to the gate for some cargo issues. Because we missed that flight we had to wait 3 hours for the next one which caused us to miss our bus reservation and ended up costing us about five extra hours in time. Staff was not very attentive."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Can’t think of anything nice to say..."
Cons: "On a cross-country flight from San Francisco to DC, you would think United could provide more than one snack option that is void of any nutritional value, and perhaps they could provide alternatives for their patrons with allergies. Is fresh fruit really too much to ask for on a 6-7 hour flight??"
Pros: "Gate attendant downstairs at departure door was very nice, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "I had to rush across the airport to another terminal in order to not miss my flight. Gate attendant at upstairs desk could have been more helpful. The flight attendant appeared to be tired and not so patient. Could have asked the people who had not turned off electronic devices to do so individually instead of threatening to stall take off over the intercom."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice"
Cons: "Plane was boarded and we were told it would be 15 min before the pilot would be there. We were on the ground for an hour and 20 minutes before we took off."
Pros: "Free World Series viewing"
Cons: "No power outlets at seat"
Pros: "The staff was excellent. United has improved their customer service."
Cons: "I just felt that even though it was a short flight, they could’ve offered water. However I do understand it was a short flight"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Small uncomfortable seating and comfort in general. Terrible WiFi"
Pros: "Nice recline, Nice 777-200."
Pros: "Jamestown airport is so small and stress free. And parking is free! Also, the price was much cheaper than flying from Fargo."
Pros: "Seats were old and comfy"
Cons: "Food was bad, wifi didn't work and entertainment was on the shared screens, instead of in the seat backs"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Hassle free no pressure service"
Cons: "I loved it"
Pros: "Clean and in order."
Pros: "Easy to board an deplane, as the plane is about the size of my bath tub."
Cons: "Can't believe United is still flying these propeller soda cans in 2017. This plane was absolutely disgusting...smelled like urine throughout, was dirty and grimy, had worn out seats. Basically like borrowing your college roommates 20 year old Buick that he got for free from his grandma. Customer service from the flight attendant was on par with the plane quality. Was snapping at customers and annoyed that everyone didn't understand how he wanted to balance the load in the plane with moving people's seats around. I get why that is super important, but that doesn't mean you can be a jerk about it to *customers* who haven't experienced the pleasure of flying in a pinewood derby car in the sky before."
Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees were very high for an extra bag. Service on the flight was overall ok. Boarding was slow and a little annoying. Gate agents were rude"
Cons: "Almost 2 hours at the gate for mysterious maintenance issue. Little good choice."
Pros: "The crew was ok for the type of company they are."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrendous. Really uncomfortable. No TV, no outlet to plug in my own device. And garbage wifi."
Cons: "showed up for a 5:20am flight and was told at check-in it was now 7:30... Nobody could have told me that before I woke up early, got a cab early and showed up to the airport early?!"
Pros: "All flights were professional mostly smooth. On time great experience."
Pros: "My grandma passed away and the airline would not work with me when I tried to change my flight. Very upsetting. Mark Davis"
Pros: "Lovely flight with an attentive crew and nice amenities"
Cons: "Flight landed but first waited 20 minutes for a gate. Then had a gate change. Then had to wait another 15 for a jet bridge driver. Another fail United."
Pros: "The crew was awesome! Very friendly and genuine."
Cons: "I didn't like that when I checked in at the Sky Cab at the curbside in Honolulu, she only printed the first half of my flight. She was unable to print my connecting flight. This caused me stress and delay!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Delayed boarding at Munich airport"
Cons: "Touch screen did not work on display unit. Was fine because I read, but still."
Pros: "I like the boarding process and the confort."
Cons: "My birthday was yesterday, August 22, and we were traveling to Atlanta, and at the San Juan airport the flight to Chicago was delayed so we upgrade to first class because we don have enough time to get birthday diner in the stop in Chicago to Atlanta, so the thing was that they didn't have enough meals for the costumers, they were 2 meals short , my husband couldn't eat so we ask for other options and they only had 2 thing that my husband couldn't eat, because they were horrible. So that brought my husband mad, so it was not enjoyable because every time he tried to do something to feel calm again but they couldn't do anything to help us calm down. They keep telling us that it was her mistake that she miscounted and that they didn't give them enough snacks, we didn't had snacks for the rest of the flight it was stressed full. Tomorrow i have to travel again back to Puerto Rico, and im scared that tomorrow will be a horrible day traveling with United, with no space for being comfortable with no food for 9 hours, im worried that the flight is delayed again and that a lost my flight back home, were my dogs are in a hotel till that night so im scared to have to pay another night for my dogs, and I wouldn't be able to pay it. I hope you could help me to figure something out to make this experience more enjoyable my phone number is 7876440442 Zaimee Esteves and Gian K Cruz"
Pros: "Short flight, really appreciated the cups of water that were offered."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The controls for my TV didn't work and when I asked for it to be fixed, the attendant told me in a frustrated way that she guessed she could move me seats but then just walked away. For a 5.5 hour flight this was pretty irritating because I didn't have access to any entertainment but also I couldn't even turn the super bright TV off."
Cons: "The seats didn't bend back to be comfortable. Only 1 inch!!! The back was restless"
Pros: "United made arrangements for me because of the flight delays"
Cons: "The first flight was delayed 4 hours so United got me a taxi to Dulles to catch my next flight. It worked but then that flight was delayed one hour."
Pros: "None of the issues related to a service dog came up on this flight."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else."
Pros: "nothing. I will never use kayak again"
Cons: "Kayak doesn't actually have anything to do with it my trip, it turns out. So when my flights got messed up, I couldn't call Kayak. And I couldn't call United or SAS because they said some third-rate travel agency actually bought me the ticket (after I "purchased" through Kayak. And so when I missed my SAS connection because of my delayed United connecting flight, nobody cared and nobody can assure me I'll ever get reimbursed. United said called SAS. SAS said call the travel agency... and on and on it went."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plenty of leg room, flight attendants were attentive and took care of drinks and made several trips to picked up garbage."
Cons: "I was told the wifi was available on my return flight but I could not get it to come on."
