Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I didn’t take the flight. Due to a change in my post-flight quarantine lodging arrangements in Salt Lake City, I needed to change the date of my flight. Delta directed me to Aeromexico to make any changes. Aeromexico refused to allow any changes. So I was forced to not take the flight and buy a new ticket for a later date."
Pros: "Delta is doing such a good job keeping people spread out, keeping masks on, and giving wipes and hand sanitizer out. They gave snacks in individual baggies with hand sanitizer. I felt so much safer than I did on a similar flight operated by American Airlines where essentially no precautions were taken."
Pros: "They did not clean with antiseptic the tray tables and tv screens between flights. Because of corona virus scare. I asked stewardess and she said no"
Pros: "Not much - the snacks"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The economy seats in an A321 are uncomfortable and there is very limited legroom."
Pros: "quick and easy flight"
Cons: "no entertainment screens at all!"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac way to long. Updates from crew weren’t frequent enough."
Pros: "the “salad” lunch before landing was excellent"
Cons: "a cleaner plane and the second lavatory upfront was minuscule"
Pros: "I felt really comfortable safe and more than happy to fly with Delta. Thank you."
Cons: "More vegan options."
Cons: "Miniature candy bars are not sufficient for an hour and a half flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled - we were moved to an Alaska Air flight. That is why all of the NAs. What was good is that the moved us to another flight in a timely manner. Also, the gate attendant kept everyone informed of what was happening."
Cons: "I almost missed the flight because I didnt hear the announcement for boarding and I was sitting near another gate to charge my phone. Fortunately I heard the final call!!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rebooking was poorly handled. Might get bumped from rebooked flight as well."
Cons: "Pay close attention when boarding in Cabo as they board multiple flights out of the same gate and it could be easy to get on the wrong bus."
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "They did great. The weather was poor, so it felt more like a roller coaster ride home. Made it safe and sound. Would’ve been nice to get an update is speaker about change in weather and the rough ride in store when the whole ride was so turbulent."
Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"
Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"
Pros: "Crew was kind and responsive."
Cons: "Older plane so seats were very crammed. My screen was not calibrated correctly so I couldn’t rewind or pause movies. No charging option for phone. WiFi was spotty."
Pros: "Flying and going fast, plus the people are kool too."
Cons: "That it was a short trip."
Cons: "staff wasn't very friendly"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."

Pros: "No issues with the flight. All went as planned."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Delay. First it was about 20 min, then 30, then 49 and 55. At the end more than 70 minutes delay. Too much, too frequent on delta!!!!"
Pros: "Well, the seats and the lavatories are smaller than ever. And I am quite petite."
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."
Cons: "No help with baggage when boarding the plane, they hurry you up for nothing, because we had to wait 20 mi utes to take off."
Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."
Pros: "That the planes flew and i met my connections and arrived home."
Cons: "Below average crew with little to no interest in doing anything but getting the flight over. Cool, and perhaps lazy or tired. We were told there was not good offered on the flight because it was not long enough. Minneapolis to Spokane - seriously????5 days earlier on same flight there was full food offerings. Audio quality and ear bugs are barely useable. Very difficult to hear any of the spoken words of the movie and I have good hearing."

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

Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"

Pros: "I liked that the security line experiences very mellow, the staff all around was very friendly and nice, the TV's were great and they had free blankets and headsets. It was a very relaxing experience."
Cons: "thought the cabin could have had more heat"
Cons: "they charge 300$ extra for a 14 year old child and dont give any service for the payment, they say it is to bring the child on and off the plane even though he can travel alone and has done it many times with other air lines. drive the parents uo the wall, make them wait endless time, and then they comlaine that thay have no time tofor the child and leave him standing with out even letting him to seat with the other air lines a child of 12 can travel alone."

Cons: "no suggestions"
Pros: "Pilot kept us well informed."
Cons: "Even though ground service was servicing the front of the plane, they were unable to service the rear of the aircraft for another hour. Don’t they know that every plane has a front AND a back. When we arrived at RDU, AA did not have someone available for nearly 20 min to get someone to us deplane"
Cons: "Everything, totally understaffed, check-in kiosks do not work. Will avoid any carrier who uses them."

Pros: "Everything went well except for my comments to the right."
Cons: "Check in in person . The lady that issues boarding passes. She never smiled and I was scared to ask her anything. She sure did not volunteer any info concerning our flight from Chengdu to LAX via CAN. Never asked if we preferred isle or window seats. I remember her and will avoid her next time."
Pros: "First, crew and service were wonderful. Business class food was very good. BUT on the SF/Guangzhou route, both ways, business class seat 14K did not work! These are 14 and 12 hour overnight flights and seat wouldn't even recline, forget laying flat! On the outbound flight I didn't realize until we took off. The crew tried to fix it and couldn't but gave me one of the crew seats in the back of business class. Not great to be separated from my husband for most of the flight, but I could sleep and was otherwise comfortable. Returning Guangzhou to SF, had the same seat. Checked it as soon as I boarded and it didn't work, again! This time they got ground crew to fix it before take off. It worked most of the flight, but once I put it up after laying flat for 8 hours, it stopped working. Would not move from a straight upright position. Ridiculous! SO check to make sure your seats work before you take off!!"
Cons: "seats didn't recline as much as they should have been able to in the space."
Pros: "Excellent flight experience and value. Crew was exceptional and professionally friendly."
Cons: "Long had no vegetarian choices other than snacks."
Cons: "How the hell are you gonna charge me OVER DOUBLE the cost to switch my flight???? That's OUTRAGEOUS!!! And to have to wait up to FOUR MONTHS to get not even a 50% refund??? Ridiculous. None of their help desk lines work, and just send you to other phone numbers that don't work. Ridiculous and unprofessional!"
Cons: "Boarding process, families were not given seats next to each other so there was a lot of chaos inside when they kept trying to ask fellow passengers to move etc."
Pros: "China Southern gave me a complimentary upgrade to premium economy for both legs of my flight."
Cons: "The food was below average airline food. A omelette I was served was not edible."

Pros: "Not much to like after being delayed."
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. In the end arrived at my destination at 3:30 am when I was originally scheduled to arrive at midnight."
Cons: "Plane delayed due to weather conditions. This seemed unnecessary as when we did fly the weather was fine. Meant I missed a connection and was put up in a three star hotel for 24 hours. Also had delay and the previous flight. Unimpressed."
Pros: "Comfy seats, really nice and friendly staff, and great selection of movies."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but I know that's not necessarily their fault."

Fortunately I had one of the small number of seats on the bus but I felt very sorry for all the people who had to stand."
Pros: "One leg of the flight was a dreamliner."
Cons: "Food was the worst I have had in memory. Crew are also the worst I have experienced in memory."
Cons: "We got inside to the checkin desk finally after waiting in horrible traffic and lines just to get into the airport. The checkin staff had already left the desk with 1 hr and 10 minutes before the flight. The guy at the information desk came to verify. After making a scene the police/security finally agreed to get someone on the radio. They refused to come back to get us and we were not allowed to go through security. We were told to go to an office in another building but the door was locked, no one home. We continue to fight but couldn't get any progress, missed our flight and ended up spending 10 hours in that airport and then having to wait an extra 10 in China for our missed connection. We went to the office. They refused to help us. Made us pay cash, couldn't take credit card, had to take out 3 different withdrawls, couldn't rebook us, had to call a downtown office. And basically said we were liars and we weren't there on time. Even though they only had the 2 employees working the entire airport for this airline. Still no power in the seats, no wifi, ended up missing an entire day plus the travel day that I was meant to be working. Travel insurance wouldn't cover because it wasn't a "strike" I don't know what else you call it when someone decides not to do their job."
Pros: "timely and effective to get to seoul from zhengzhou"
Pros: "Food (chicken and rice) was slightly better. Quiet ride"
Cons: "Soap in the restroom ?"
Pros: "I was traveling business, the crew were so helpful, it's 1 to 1 individual service. The seats were so comfortable and lots of room. Food is fantastic, lounge is very good, good food and drinks. Their price is quite reasonable, makes this trip worth every cent of it! Love it and I will travel with them in future."
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Pork meals are delicious especially century egg with pork congee"
Cons: "Dirty toilets, despite attendants have regular cleaning schedules. My headphone and media monitor was not working."
Cons: "The food selection could use a change with more fresh ingredients. We were offered two hot dishes but both were almost exactly the same. It would have been nice to have the lunch portion be or dinner portion be different."
Pros: "Getting off the plane!!"
Cons: "Every minute of the flight!!"
Pros: "Arrived on time ."
Cons: "No western food selection"
Cons: "On Sep 14th, I paid on your websites with the confirmation of three airline tickets from Chengdu China to Los Angeles. All the information I provide for each passengers are correct. However, due to the fact that you missed up three of the passengers information, they couldn't check in yesterday. The whole fight to LA was missed. As a result, we had to pay very high price to buy new tickets for the next available fight in order to complete the trip. I'v made four phone calls with your agent, with all records made. 1) The 1st agent confirmed that the information I provided were all correct for each passengers. So she believed there was nothing wrong and did nothing to help. 2) The 2nd agent realized the information were mixed up. But it was too late to let them check in. 3) The 3rd agent confirmed that the issue were caused by your system. He said only the supervisor could deal with this matter. He gave me a number which is not valid. 4) Finally, the 4th agent said you would contact me. No response by now. Still waiting for the response. Very disappointed after all."
