Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Social distancing, purell wipes were handed out, food and water handed out in a baggy."
Cons: "everything was great. I love delta."
Pros: "Great social distancing and Delta supplies MULTIPLE sanitizing options!!"
Pros: "We needed a seat belt extender and one of the crew members noticed and was so kind in getting that. No embarrassment or drawing attention to the customer. His name? David"
Pros: "The flight crew could have been more attentive. Jackets and coats were not collected during preboarding until last minute, by then I had already put mine away."
Cons: "No food was offered, short flight though, that’s okay, but the crew definitely could have been more attentive to the first class passengers."
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Pros: "Crew was professional and understanding/empathetic given the circumstances. We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "While the weather delay was out of everyone’s control and it was obvious the pilot was doing everything he could to get the pale airborne... i feel their could have been better communication from the ground as to our take off time. They kept changing our time and thus we were trapped on the tarmac for 4 hrs. Had we known, some of us could have gotten off the plane and rerouted so as not to miss our connecting flight. We and others were stuck in Atlanta, had t okay for a hotel....and missed a day of vacation....☹️"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Pros: "The airplane seats and entertainment were 150% bettter than American"
Cons: "The check in area felt cramped, understaffed and like a 4th rate airline"
Cons: "Remain awesome!"
Pros: "After there was a problem with the plane once we had boarded, they were able to switch us to another plane at another gate. There was a short wait, and we only had a delay of 35 minutes."
Cons: "You shouldn't schedule a flight for a plane that is due to have scheduled maintenance. It's not like this should come as a surprise to you. Also, there was at least one over-served passenger on board who became loud and obnoxious, shouting obscenities."
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I am very impressed with the level of consistency that Delta has offered the last couple of months. This flight didn’t disappoint. The crew was particularly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of-10/10"
Cons: "Plane left 4 mins early knowing that passengers were on a delayed flight."
Pros: "you were on time !!"
Cons: "space between seats !!!"
Cons: "Slow WiFi"
Cons: "Just better food"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, crew was great, overall a smooth flight"
Cons: "The fact that airlines are trying to charge for every little add-on is pretty annoying. 2 dollars for headphones? Don't even get me started with their snack boxes..."
Pros: "The crew where extremely friendly, helpful and visible. As the flight was being boarded the gate agent saw me with my cane and she upgraded me to a seat closer to the front of the plane without being asked. Those extra little touches are appreciated"
Cons: "The airport."
Pros: "Food was great as was the selection of movies available. The seat was comfortable and had enough leg room."
Cons: "Lines was confusing and the various boarding tiers were not announced properly (Delta One, Sky Priority, and Zone 1 were all together and Zone 2 started boarding way before the priority lane was finished)."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small air craft"
Cons: "I hate the biscuits and water... really? On a 3hrs and 30 minutes flight. You guyz can do better"
Cons: "It didn’t take off on time"
Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"
Cons: "wish the pods were a little longer for sleeping. it your 6'1 or taller you can't completely stretch out"
Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "No wifi couldn’t do any work"
Cons: "Was looking forward to completing some work but the wifi never came on."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"
Pros: "Fast boarding, we even left early! Very kind crew. Flight was WAY shorter than it said on our itinerary!"
Cons: "No TVs and couldn’t get wifi to work. Small plane, slightly uncomfortable."
Cons: "Basic economy has way too many restrictions"
Cons: "I don't like that I already completed this survey several days ago and have been receiving reminders to do so. I guess you don't have a good system in place for knowing who has and has not completed your surveys. That's too bad."
Pros: "On time departure; good updates by flight deck; luggage arrived unscathed."
Cons: "Once beverage service was complete, flight attendants retreated to the back of the plane. On a 4-hour flight, it would have been nice to have someone come by and ask if we needed anything, such as water, coffee, or juice. Granola bar was good."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, boarding went smooth and flight was on time... No complaints!"
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "The time it takes from Atlanta to VPS is not long trip at all. The crew was courteous and glad to take off and land safely. Thanks to the Delta crew."
Pros: "Timeliness of flight."
Cons: "I was told if I didn't show proof of a return flight to the US that they wouldn't let me board. I live in Mexico. None the less I had a return trip booked for a family event on another airline."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Pros: "love to fly delta"
Cons: "don't like when they ask to check bags at gate"
Pros: "The flight attendants made the safety briefing extremely lively and personal, a wonderful break from the normal tedious process. The rest of the flight was quiet, uneventful, and pleasant in part due to their good nature. I cannot have gluten or soy, and I was brought a complimentary bag of potato chips that were gluten free - the one and only time this has happened! I hope to fly with this crew again someday."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "Waiting for luggage in Peoria"
Pros: "Boarding & crew were excellent. Very polite."
Cons: "On flights 0204 & 1687 on 9/21/16---there were no blankets available for comfort. I would expect this since I paid extra for the delta comfort seats. Not very nice☹️ Only Chardonnay & Merlot wines were available. if you're going to carry two full bodied wines then you should carry two light wines as well. For example a Riesling or Pinot noir. I could not drink either of the wines delta carried. Furthermore, I tend to eat low carb & sugar snacks. All the snacks offered were high in carbs except the peanut packs. Delta only had one peanut pack on board. They had many pretzels , bananas & yogurt bars which were high sugar & carbs! Try carrying some Greek plain yogurt & unsweetened vanilla almond milk. TY for your attention."
Pros: "Flight left on time despite the problems"
Cons: "We waited for one hour to be able to board. The system crashed so we were very lucky to arrive very early to the airport"
