Cons: "Boarding process was really poor. Long line for just dropping a bag off that I already paid for."
Pros: "Horrible storms kept us in the air for at least an hour past our scheduled landing time. And yet we experienced virtually no turbulence. The pilots did an excellent job of keeping us updated, kept things as smooth as possible with the bad weather and we had plenty of movies and games to choose"
Cons: "I was charged an extra $100 because my bag was 10lbs overweight. Where is this crazy fee communicated on their website? And why does it have to be so much? I didn't have a way to weigh our bag before we left. I had no idea it was so heavy - ridiculous price."
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Cons: "It could have left on time or they could have told us they weren’t leaving and let us get some sleep."
Pros: "I have flown with Delta for a number of trips now. I seem to receive middle seat allocations even with the freqent flyers partnership with Virgin Velosity program shared."
Cons: "My seat allocation."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Stop being LATE!!!!"
Pros: "Great food and service in first class"
Cons: "Water waiting on table on arrival"
Pros: "The food and the treatment"
Pros: "Great view of the mountains, EVERYTHING was one time and EARLY!! Staff was great and we had a smooth ride. wish all flights were this good. Even touchdown was amazing, like landing on glass. Compliments to the captain."
Cons: "No drinks or snacks"
Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Cons: "Both Virgin plans needed a deep cleaning."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Cons: "Crew was pretty short with everyone and not Delta’s best - not sure what the story was. Gate staff were allowing people to cut queue lines left and right - why even have the zones lined up if not going to enforce?"
Cons: "Bought a brand new suitcase and Delta staff broke one of the wheels!"
Pros: "Every thing good"
Pros: "good price but older plans"
Cons: "please do not use plastic forks and spoons"

Cons: "Delayed due to weather."
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "The flights were smooth, it was an easy process"
Pros: "I like that Delta is efficient and the service is consistent. I pick Delta because I know what I’m going to get . I like that I can choose the entertainment I want and that everything is at my fingertips including flight info, food and beverage options, etc. it’s relatively comfortable but it’s not near the level of Virgin America or JetBlue."
Cons: "I’m not sure if it is due to LAX construction but it is chaotic at the airport. It is super confusing where you need to go, drop bags, etc. the weird part is Check in was in terminal 3 and gate at terminal 2. That is a long walk back and forth. There is probably a more efficient way of doing this. Besides that, they need to do a better job communicating that seats are changing and not Reggy before boarding. Though I can understand it can get crazy because people will panic but it’s not great heading up to enter in not knowing if you are sitting in window when you picked it for a reason. Otherwise, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The boarding process doesn't make sense. My seat assignment was changed for no reason, and I didn't have a say in it. I was put further back on the plane. Not happy about that."
