Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Nothing all excellent"
Cons: "It was great! Nice job Delta !"
Cons: "Wouldn’t change a thing! I don’t always fly! But when I do!! I fly delta!!"
Cons: "For options none. No drink carts at all. Had coffee once after I asked. Poor quality entertainment. Just a huge waste of money."
Pros: "Christina brown was amazing at gate"
Pros: "The staff at Delta are always friendly and helpful and they were able to squeeze me onto a very full flight."
Cons: "The main economy seats were far too narrow."
Pros: "I always have a consistently good experience on Delta. Everything was great."
Cons: "It was a Great flight. I always enjoy flying Delta"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost 3 hours. Not good. Once in the air it was fine."
Pros: "Everything ok. I was hoping to buy food but glad to see almonds as one of the free snacks. Delta seems to be upping its game a bit lately."
Cons: "No US carrier seems able to master smooth boarding without standing waits."
Pros: "The crew was great and the free entertainment was great"
Cons: "Bring back pillows and blankets especially on red eyes out of Anchorage"
Cons: "Take off on time"
Cons: "Not really an experienced flyer. Overall the flight seemed good. No issues with airline or airport. Just don’t understand self-important people that feel compelled to push the overhead storage limits with their bags."
Cons: "1.5 hour delay...no reason given!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and completely packed so our family could not get seats together"
Cons: "Better screens for in-flight movies. More legroom or upgrade options."
Pros: "Not much. Boarding by "zone" works ok, but is no quicker than most other boarding methods."
Cons: "Boeing 767-400ER seats had no leg room for 6'+ traveller like me. The entertainment system was so old that there were no 115v outlets or USB ports. On a 7-hour flight, that is a significant problem for travellers today with multiple electronic devices. Finally, we were not told in advance that we had to go through security twice and through US Customs BEFORE leaving Dublin. So, the 6-hour layover at JFK was a complete waste of our time as we did not have to go through Customs there."
Pros: "First leg from San Diego was excellent."
Cons: "Arriving in SLC discovered out flight to Denver was CANCELLED! Had to reschedule to the next day. Not fun!"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Second flight was a newer plane - sweet!"
Cons: "For a long flight perhaps a little more in the snack department."
Pros: "Crew was all very nice"
Cons: "Flying is always uncomfortable"
Pros: "When deplaning in Denver, I was impressed that the captain was the staff who got behind my wheelchair and offered to push me up the walkway :)... New aircraft, kind staff, shorty flight!"
Cons: "Nothing disappointed, butt i didn't have any good besides pretzels."
Pros: "Not much to like here. The new crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Old crew was surly. Plane had much problems and finally replaced. Left 5 hrs late. Delta claims it doesn't have to compensate for a late flight - just a cancelled one so guess which this was The baggage fees are obscene and the gouging of the customer is immoral. No wonder people hate the airlines."
Cons: "Excellent service excellent pilot"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was very smooth and I thought the crew did a great job."
Cons: "I know this is a federal regulation, but I have to mention it as it is part of the boarding process. For the life of me, I can't understand why it is necessary to go through security again after re-entering the country. Understandable that I have to go through customs, but going through security again is ridiculous."
Pros: "Flights were both on time and boarded quickly. Crew was wonderful!"
Pros: "Free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and the timing of the flight was very good."
Cons: "Nothing to do with personnel but my seat was changed from when I booked. I wound up in the last row at the very back versus what I had booked. I think they changed the type of plane."
Cons: "This is my third flight this year with Delta and every time we wait for the "crew" to get off from another flight. And as soon as they get there we can board. It's getting very annoying. Fix it."
Pros: "I love the new snack choices! Way to go Delta for offering Kind bars now!! This is awesome."
Cons: "Tiny old plane, props blocked my window view, no entertainment system."
Pros: "The staff of the flight were very friendly and attentive. They were great!"
Cons: "I'm tired of Delta making it IMPOSSIBLE to experience benefits of my loyalty. I flew literally AROUND the world in the past 6 months and it STILL doesn't qualify me for anything more than Silver elite? Seriously? When you use a voucher because of their error to lower your ticket price, but still pay cash for it, why does that then automatically exclude you from upgrades? Poor customer loyalty, in fact, non-existent these days."
Cons: "No food or beverage service"
Pros: "Early arrival. And service"
Cons: "I was assigned very last seat and there is no reclining option."
Cons: "long wait and delayed flight"
Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"
Pros: "Attendants and entertainment"
Cons: "Delays for no explained reason"
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: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Pros: "Very professional and caring."
Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"
Pros: "Crew was quick and nice."
Cons: "Not many options for food."
Cons: "Flight was repeatedly delayed. Ended up being over 3 hours late to depart due to weather. Another delay due to mechanical problems."
Cons: "I've only experienced delayed flights with Delta ... and this was no exception. It wasn't weather-related, nor a late flight delivering a plane - just no ground crew to service the plane between flights."
Pros: "nice snack"
Cons: "We did not board at the scheduled time, although I believe we arrived on time. The crew was demeaning and singled out individuals who were causing the aircraft to not move. It was in a very pretentious manner, not like southwest personnel who have similar antics but with a playful tone. The plane is a small one where bags don't fit overhead and many head bumps occur. We arrived fine which mean the flight was successful but it was not very enjoyable."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Great cabin service, attentive and polite. Comfort Plus seats are worth the extra few bucks."
Cons: "Nothing. Low rating for entertainment only because there really wasn't any, but I wouldn't have used it anyway, so no big deal."
Pros: "All went as planned and expected. No thrill- like taking a Greyhound bus in the old days...gets you where you are going but without much pizzazz New seats and quite clean, but the new seats were very hard and uncomfortable after an hour."
Cons: "Somewhat claustrophobic and always wish the drop down tray table behind could be disconnected from my seat. When the passenger behind uses the tray as a set of bongo drums to keep beat with his headphones it is a pretty miserable trip."
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: "Crew was pleasant, flight went as expected."
Cons: "Only issue was being held on the tarmac for 50 minutes causing delayed takeoff. No other issues"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was wonderful, she worked so hard the whole flight and was so pleasant. I am sorry I don’t know her name, but she’s beautiful!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Great flight"
Pros: "We landed Friendly crew"
Cons: "Tray table broken Entire flight too cramped. Grateful I didn’t have the last seat in the back across from the lav. can you squ3eze any more seats into that aircraft?!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Pros: "The seat was super Uncomfortable. Squished Middle seat that I paid $37 for (w/Priority boarding, see below). What a ripoff. The seat was designed specifically to torture passengers, of this I am certain."
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade that included "Priority Boarding", For AA, that meant Group 5 out of 9. WTF?? Clearly Bait and Switch - there's a big placard at every AA boarding gate that states: Priority Boarding 1-4 (to the Left) and "Main Boarding" 5-9 (to the Right). Fraudulent, clearly."
Pros: "Crew was as good as can be and helpful during boarding."
Cons: "Chair seat belts weren’t long enough for me I’m 6’2 290 I know I’m not the average size but it wouldn’t hurt to add a little length."
Cons: "Our already delayed 1 am flight was cancelled a little before midnight. It was rescheduled to 8am. It was a big headache trying to get a hotel, meal vouchers. Then, there were no shuttles to the hotel available so has to wait in line again for taxi vouchers."
Cons: "I’m never ever in my life flying with American Airlines Again. I want my money back honestly. I’ve had 4 flights with AA. 2 to get to Columbia and 2 to get back to Washington. 3-4 HAD ISSUES OR WAS WAY LATE. Unexceptional"
Cons: "Feeling of being cramped"
Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "on time flight, crew member courtesy"
Pros: "No major screw-ups this time!"
Cons: "It's AA, let's not try too hard here."
Pros: "Easy access and commute"
Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."
Cons: "4 delays.. weather suc’s when trying to fly"
Cons: "that my flight got cancelled and wasn't going out until Saturday and I would have been less than 24 hrs in Boston"
Pros: "Free tv to distract me from my state of misery"
Cons: "Too warm on flight. Was so nauseated the whole time."
Pros: "Purser Rockland Albrecht and his crew went out of their way to make our over night flight BA as comfortable as possible. Found us better seats and checked in to see that all was well on a busy flight. Service has certainly improved!"
Pros: "While the incoming flight arrived late causing us to board late, the flight still landed almost 2o minutes early. The staff was very friendly as well."
Cons: "The plane was delayed almost two hours and we had to deplane about a 3 minute walk to the airport in the rain. What I’ve come to expect from American Airlines unfortunately"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Late flight"
Pros: "There is not much to like when you over charge for seats and have staff who don’t accomodate for family to sit together or someone with a disability who needs to use the restroom often to sit on an aisle seat."
Cons: "Staff has horrible attitude. Price for seats and luggage is ridiculous."
Pros: "Staff at gate were very nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed three or four times throughout the day"
Pros: "The fact that they re-booked without me having to contact customer service."
Cons: "The connecting flight was cancelled while boarding was in progress at the start of the journey."
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time and arrived early at LAX."
Cons: "They ran out of breakfast. Seat configuration was 3-3-3 in economy and not 2-4-2 like on the JAL flight on the way to Japan. The level of professionalism is much higher on JAL in regards to the flight attendants than AA. The boarding process still needs a lot of work to be more organized (take a look at JAL as an example - they treat customers like kings and queens). Also, there was no way to get a seat assignment through the JAL website. That website looks and acts like it’s from the late 90s."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. On time flight"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks:("
Cons: "There planes are just to tight and the seats are incredibly uncomfortable."
Cons: "This was a tiny aircraft from Charlotte to Savannah. Our bags were placed into "valet" for the flight. When I retrieved my bag, the handle was broken! Destroyed on a 1 hour flight. This is exactly why people don't like checking their bags. There is no care for other people's belongings. It's bag enough you're packed on these flights like sardines and then you have to worry about receiving your property back the way you gave it to them. Placed a claim, but meanwhile I had to purchase new luggage for my return trip."
Pros: "Clean boarding area."
Cons: "American airline agent who checked us in at the curb side asked for the money. Will not use curb side check-in."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great"
Pros: "On time smooth ride"
Cons: "I booked using expedia, but Kayak was sending me updates & info. I did not receive our booking record finder number, so I couldn't check in with my phone, so we got terrible seats in the back."
Pros: "Another typical domestic flight. Nothing special. Pretzels were the only snack."
Cons: "No entertainment and nowhere to charge electronics."
Pros: "To be fair. The flight is only 50 minutes. By th time you get a drink it's time to land. It is completely unfair to the staff to have to do that. A flight like that. Have a box with a snack and some coolers that have 5 different beverages. I wouldn't even sell booze. I person can hold out for a flight that shot to get one on the connection or in the terminal."
Cons: "It's always a cramped flight. Nothing to be done except use a bigger, more spacious plane. The good thing is it's the fastest way to get to Chicago from where I lived it would take 6hrs by car."
Cons: "LATAM deboarded me from the flight after I had boarded. They claimed American had cancelled my reservation because they did not think I would make my connection. I ran in order to make it and then instead of offering me information on the next flight they left me stranded with instructions to find American. Terrible, terrible customer service. I will think twice before booking a LATAM flight again."
Pros: "I flew Tokyo to Vegas and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight vis lax and put me on a flight vis Dallas. That added about 7 hours to my journey. Then they sit on the tarmac for 50 minutes doing nothing on both of the two flights."
Pros: "Crew was professional. Boarding was effcient"
Cons: "As for confort, let's say that we know now how sardines feel in their tiny can."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helped me reroute my flights."
Cons: "I took a 3 leg journey so I expected to be flying all day, but every flight was delayed going out and one flight was delayed coming in. Plus there are never any gluten free snack choices on the flight."
Pros: "Kayak didn't gave single updates or reminder, not even ticket confirmation. Never buying from kayak."
Pros: "Staff was pretty good, and while the food wasn't incredible, it wasn't bad."
Cons: "I hold the personal opinion that the headrests on transatlantic seats should be the sort that prevent one's head from falling to the side. It seemed like this was a domestic plane assigned to an international route."
Cons: "We had purchased the tickets months before flying - It was Quantas, but we flew on American and Alaska- no one seemed to talk to each other - not one site had the complete itinerary. Took hours of phone calls and a lot of anxiety before we completed the trip. I used my American airline frequent flyer card and even though we flew over 14000 miles, we got credit for 500."
Pros: "Flight delayed which allowed us to make connection after long runway and customs delays. Crew friendly and helpful. Prompt cabin service. Baggage brought quickly in SAT. Clean plane. Power source."
Cons: "Local pickup at SAT is now devoted to taxi. Airport police rude. Most people picked up at 11PM and hard for cars to get to curb or see passenger due to taxi line. Both terminals terrible after several experiences in last couple months. SAT worst pickup experience that I see national and international travel. Obvious that cabs and air port police are the worst congestion problem I experience."
Cons: "Apparently Finnair leases a Hilly plane and crew for this flight right now, so it wasn't quite the same."
Cons: "Iwould like my money back notting i bever made it home"
Pros: "Very smooth"
Cons: "I didn't not like anything."
Pros: "Went business class and was truly spoiled. Did an evening flight. The seat laid down to a flat bed. Boses headsets, facial refresher packages were provided. The food was wonderful and the wine was above average. A must experience!"
Pros: "Clean and not much space but ok"
Cons: "No individual screen and no choices"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "Again just a small jumper, can't expect much, but a day late due to AA"
Cons: "Back home just 5 days out and back, just 2 days of flights, 3 flights late or missed because of AA. fly anything but American Airlines."
Pros: "Was delayed over 3 hours"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours"
Pros: "The reps at customer service were very nice and helpful. Kudos to them"
Cons: "I missed my flight to Grand Junction the night before because my plane from Dulles was delayed. So, consequently I had to spend the night in Denver. I was not pleased with that at all."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "This flight had no snacks or drinks and was also delayed what else is there to say."
Pros: "Orderly, quick, ontime boarding"
Cons: "Not being able to bring a carryon."
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour, leg room was very cramped, we sat on the tarmac at O’Hare for almost an hour upon arrival"
Pros: "Beautiful view"
Cons: "One of our bags didn’t make it. We dropped them off together. We still don’t have the missing luggage."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and good communication from pilot"
Cons: "Flight attendant was gruff when communicating. She seemed angry when providing information. It was a short flight, so not a lot was offered, which was totally fine. However, when she walked down the isle with water, she appeared to be looking at the ceiling and didn’t stop to check if many people wanted water, including me."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Too many people, too little space. Only two bathrooms for 114 people."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could with the situation"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for an hour so that the plane after having to change planes needed to be filled with gas. It was a long wait in a very small space. Never uncomfortable. We also waited on the plane with any notice of how long we would be sitting."
Cons: "The flight attendant forgot to serve me."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "No peanuts"
Pros: "Entertainment was very good"
Cons: "It was freezing cold. Apparently something went wrong with AC system as even despite numerous complaints by passengers nothing could be done. Spending 9 hours in a freezing cold plane already has affected my and my husvand's health as we are both now coughing and with blocked noses."
Pros: "Multiple passengers were assigned the same seats so we had to do some shuffling once everyone had boarded. There were however enough seats for everyone."
Cons: "The staff was very pleasant and professional."
Pros: "Great UA crew on flight to SFO."
Cons: "UA plane stayed a long time on O'Hare tarmac waiting for takeoff to LA. Then parking at gate in LA took a long time. The result was I missed my UA connection to SFO. UA put me in the next LA-SFO flight."
Cons: "3 delays, but United refused to cancel the flight which would allow the passengers to rebook. Pilots were dismissed and we were given vouchers to the worst motel that I have EVER stayed in. Since I had to be in Washington the next morning, I purchased a $600 ticket online after the gate agent told all of the passengers that United could not get them to D.C. until the next evening. To top it off, they used the same plane with mechanical problems the next morning, which caused further delays. Terrible and costly."
Cons: "Poor customer service.Flight was delayed and the employees at the counter where not helpful at almost missed my connection if the crew in Jersey weren't waiting for our flight to arrive.Since then I try my best not using United to flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew themselves were great. The pilots offered my child to go see the cabin and everyone on the actual plane was great."
Cons: "The United employees at check in kiosk were very unorganized and unhelpful. I was traveling internationally with a small child and had two pieces of luggage to check in. Normally you just go to the counter once and they do everything including taking your luggage once they weigh it. Instead, I had to go to the self check in kiosk, then back to the counter to weigh my luggage, take off the one luggage from the scale, weigh the second one, then go back to the self check in kiosk, then was told to take off the second luggage as well, then finally went to a second counter where the lady handwritten my luggage tags and then was told to take both pieces of luggage and put them somewhere else altogether with specific directions on where to put them. This is something normally handled by the actual employees. Also, the check in dude yelled at my kid for putting in his name into the check in kiosk while we were waiting on the check in dude to do all those unorganized activities. He claimed it would break the software if my kid were to enter his name. I have told him that no, the software will not break if my child enters in his name."
Pros: "The flight was good and we arrived on time, despite the fact we left Denver late. Didn't buy any food."
Cons: "The Entertainment choices on this flight were lousy...I also didn't like the fact that I had to buy Economy Plus because my wife and I were not only not assigned seats together after booking, we were not assigned seats at all. When I booked the flights I was only allowed to choose seats for the first flight - Charlotte to Houston...but not for the other three legs of our Charlotte to Seattle trip. The only two seats together from Houston to Seattle were in the very last row. And, on our return flight we had to purchase Economy Plus in order to sit together."
Cons: "Seats and food were disappointing ."
Pros: "short duration"
Cons: "So short that somehow I didn't get a cup of water..I know they started to serve it but maybe they missed our row, maybe turbulence ended service by then.. I don't know why but I was overheated and very thirsty."
Pros: "United hires good people. Flight was comfortable and on-time."
Pros: "The size of the pane. :) it was very comfortable."
Cons: "The attitude of the captains first lieutenant"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight from Newark to Ft. Lauderdale due to a 30 minute weather delay, and then an hour long delay imposed by Newark Airport due to air traffic volume. I had to sleep (barely due to all of the nighttime maintenance going on) on the damn floor by my standby gate because I couldn't afford a hotel and United refused to pay for one."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Good options are terrible"
Pros: "That I made it alive"
Cons: "That the seats were very small and the person next to me could not fit into their seat"
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time, small snack was good"
Cons: "Very little space in seat"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, I missed my connection, the flight attendant did not care one bit, she was a bit rude, the food was horrible."
Pros: "Was fine"
Pros: "Frontier and spirit are illegitimate companies. Please stop selling their tickets"
Cons: "i had to pay $25.00 for my one bag on my flight home but didn't have to pay from indy to washington"
Pros: "Good flight."
Pros: "First of all the captain let us board early and get settled, the flight attendants were very friendly and the take off and landing were smooth, it was a great flight the seats were comfortable and the trip was short."
Pros: "The professionalism of the airline stewardess says that's what I like the most"
Cons: "I really can't say that I truly would call something I didn't like"
Cons: "Prices are expensive for entertainment. No room to be comfortable for economy passengers."
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Pros: "Staff was professional. Flight was on time"
Pros: "Brand new plane!"
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with little communication or reassurance. When I had to rebook my connection, the counter was woefully understaffed and they were not equipped with new enough computers to quickly address my problem."
Pros: "That I was able to find a cheap seat to come home for a family emergency even though the seating was tight."
Cons: "The scheduling was really tight. Had to basically run from gate 25 to gate 82 to catch my flight to Nebraska. And then I realized this was the same the last time I flew this route a couple years ago around Christmas. Too close. Good thing I'm in shape."
Cons: "It was a new plane but it was extremely uncomfortable. The chairs were so stiff."
Pros: "The Food Otions and Entertainment."
Cons: "Airline Changed the Plane and switched our seats. Our group ended up sitting separate than originally showed in our ittiniary."
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Dirty plane. The air smelled bad. We were delayed, on both flights."
Pros: "Nice good and movie selection. Seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "No tv in headrest."
Pros: "The plane waited for all of the lint writing luggage to be delivered which was helpful for me because mine was part of that"
Cons: "Paying for entertainment on the tiny screen – this should always be free"
Pros: "On time and even more comfortable seats"
Cons: "No sparkling lime water"
Cons: "lost our bag, crying babies, uncomfortable plane"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendant was very rude when I asked for some help lifting my bag into the overhead compartment."
Pros: "I updated to first class and it was wonderful. I loved the extra space and services I received! I will only fly first class from now on."
Pros: "Airplane was clean. The attendant was warm and friendly, made eye contact and seemed concerned about everyone's comfort."
Cons: "long boarding time"
Pros: "I was informed all the time"
Cons: "The plain was delayed for too long"
