Pros: "Super respctful"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful, I had a nice spot on the plane, and it went very smoothly, especially considering the circumstances. I was supposed to be flying to Seattle later on, but I had to change my flight last minute because of the virus. The whole Delta team was very understanding and considerate and it made the process much less stressful."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and rescheduled for a later time the day before and there was a lot of changing of gates and running around, but I understand that everything has been hectic and I don’t blame that on you, I know you’re all doing your best."
Pros: "Seating and serving, both very good"
Cons: "I couln't get my view on for movies, since there was (I presume) a charge for the earphones. Won't know now what happened to Jean Grey. Maybe offer a small book cart as an alternative entertainment for us cheapskates? do-de-do..."

Pros: "Food and service was nice"

Pros: "the plane was large, we departed on time, the flightcrew was extra friendly and attentive"

Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "We flew Delta. My husband fractured his ankle and got a cast the day before our flight to Cancun. No turning back Our seat assignments had us separated on some segments and also at window and middle seats. On all flights we were bumped up to comfort seats with an empty seat next to us for his cast and the final flight home put in an earlier flight home to avoid a six hour layover! Delta really went over and beyond expected."
Cons: "Kayak sent me an alert to our flight telling us we left from Terminal S in Atlanta. After several joyvrides on the tram we found out there is no Terminal S!"
Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."
Pros: "Everything was perfect !! Staff friendly"
Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "Hartsfield rental car train broke so it made me miss my original flight to DCA. Delta ticket agents rebooked me w/no problem and could not have been nicer or more professional. Thank you Delta, you are my hero! Hartsfield Airport, not so much."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Paid $30 for wifi and it never worked. Would like a refund"
Pros: "Decent selection of in-flight entertainment. (The entertainment unit was sub-par to allow full enjoyment.)"
Cons: "Older plane had undersized, non-responsive touch displays so passenger behind felt like a woodpecker. Also, retrofitted to provide in-seat power with metal box under seat in front of you makes it very uncomfortable for window passengers who don't have space to stow bag under seat in front of them or for their feet. (Uncomfortable on a long flight.)"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"
Pros: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"
Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "Easy loading and unloading the plane. Friendly staff"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Cons: "I'm not sure how you lose a bag on a direct flight from Atlanta to Denver, but Delta found a way to do it. They didn't even put my bag on the plane and had to send it with the next one coming. To their credit, they did drive it out to my house when it got here."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Travel to Canada from the US is generally an unpleasant experience, probably because there are not many travelers. Not many connecting flights and long layovers. Plane is small, no exntertainment, no food, few beverage options."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to mechanical issues for over 4 hours causing me to miss my connection in Atlanta. Vincent with Delta gave me a new flight schedule that would get me to my destination with little to no delay. He was fantastic."
Cons: "Once in Atlanta they had trouble finding the notes Vincent wrote, and could not pull up boarding passes or my schedule to Acapukco. The next morning I arrived early at the gate and a Delta rep was able to print my boarding pass to Mexico City but had no information on my next flight. I was told to get on the flight regardless. I was sent to Mexico City early the next morning and once I arrived I was informed I was not able to get on the 11:45 flight, even though I was assured I would have no trouble. I was not put on a flight until after 2pm that afternoon. Over 3 hours after I was schedule to arrive at my destination. The lack of communication between airports was unacceptable. Each staff member tried to accommodate me, each time having a lack of communication disrupt my travel plans yet again."
