Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Helpful and attentive crew"
Pros: "Crew was super amazing and friendly! Very good service also!"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment.."
Pros: "The best other than the fact it was packed full lol but that’s not Deltas fault"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent. Friendly, helpful, kind — great attendants and crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. We never found out why exactly. That was a little tough but staff was great"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient. Flight attendants were helpful and kind and seemed to care."
Cons: "We booked basic seats knowing we might not sit together however we did not know they would separate children. They put my husband and I in an exit row and my daughter at the back of the plane with strangers. I was not comfortable with strangers being responsible for my child. I assumed they would seat children with at least one parent. We did ask to move at the gate and the accommodated us with the last row on the plane. No recline, no window, and right next to the bathrooms. We took it to be with our kid but this policy needs to be revised. Kids should always be seated with the adult responsible for them... who knows what kind of person might end up next to my child. Not to mention if she had needed something is the stranger gonna take care of it? It’s just a bad practice imo."

Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"

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."
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."
Cons: "Seats and food were disappointing ."
Pros: "Prompt departure"
Cons: "The weather in denver"
Pros: "Friendly crew. I could understand the pilot. He had to tell us we were skirting weather and would be delayed in landing. But he was clear and professional, which made it easier to take."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled 3 times and I arrived at my destination at approximately 10:30 p.m. instead of 11:15 a.m."

Pros: "We boarded quick, the flight was smooth. We arrived early. The staff was friendly"

Cons: "The flight was about 30 min late in boarding"
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: "I didn't freeze! We got a little snack thing. The center seat wasn't taken so I had more room. Even tho it was delayed a bit to wait for connecting passengers, I would like to think the same would be done for me, so that was okay."
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: "Good flight. Lots of room."

Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful. This was my first flight in eight years. The staff from the terminal to the plane was very helpful."

Pros: "Airplane was clean. The attendant was warm and friendly, made eye contact and seemed concerned about everyone's comfort."
Cons: "We boarded late because of maintenance check. After we boarded, we were told still doing maintence check."
Pros: "The staff were friendly except when they threatened to kick people off who had large carry ons."
Cons: "The staff threatened to kick us off the first plane from aspen to Chicago because the plane was booked for every seat and overstuffed. The staff said if we couldn't fit our carry on onboard then we would have to take the next flight out which there wasn't one because of a snowstorm. The carry on was a regular backpack and almost didn't fit in the tiny space available for us. Also when we were on the plane the seats were made out of legitimate plastic and hurt my back on the 3 hour plane ride, and the space between seats was so cramped my legs were pushing up against the seat in front of me and I'm only 5'10" so that's going to be hard for your 6'0" and higher people. Also the plane lost my $800 snowboard and sent it to denver instead of Birmingham the kiosk service person has one job it's not that hard to stick on "Birmingham" on the label. I think I deserve a refund for this flight."
Pros: "Clean cabins and good service. Also, an informative pilot who made sure we knew why we were delaying the flight."
Cons: "We only received drinks on the flight, but it was short, so it wasn't a big deal."
Cons: "The service was good, but I found a hard object in my chicken dinner like someone lost a molar. I couldn't finish the supper."
Pros: "The flight crew were professional and well trained"
Cons: "The aircraft was very cramped and very uncomfortable even for such a short fligh"
Pros: "Not food and not tv was included on the service! So not review in this point."
Pros: "I was kept well informed. I haven't flown in a long time kayak and united made it easy by keeping me informed. Thank you for all the help."
Cons: "Just the hassle of going through security. They took away my bottle osarka. Water and bottle coke. Telling I couldn't take them on the flight. As soon as as I got through security there was a vendor there and had to buy those same items and costumed them on the flight without a problem. So what was the point ."
