Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Took extreme measures for COVID prevention. It felt very safe"
Cons: "The pilot take off, navigation in the air, and landing were horrible ."
Cons: "Remain awesome!"
Pros: "Decent leg room for economy, lots of food offered, excellent choice of movie. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Additional security check at the gate is unnecessary, annoying and insulting. Worst then third world country."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The plane was very quiet (except for noisy crying babies)."
Cons: "Unless you can afford the higher priced "comfort class" or first class seats, the seating is very, very cramped on Delta's 757s. It's a good thing the flight was only 5+ hours (but that's not long enough to get any decent amount of sleep on this flight scheduled as a redeye)."
Pros: "Crew was really nice"
Cons: "Since my first flight was delay I lost deje second one."
Pros: "no very poor , terrible plans and plane service"
Cons: "better aircraft, better trained staff from delta service in tei cities wonderful fred"

Pros: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"
Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."
Cons: "Just not very pleasant, I guess you get what you pay for"
Cons: "I was flying standby. I checked the list on line and my name was number 5. I get to the gate and there’s just a handful of customers. The agent said there was enough seats for the standbys I wait and wait for my name to be called but no luck. My name wasn’t cleared yet. Finally I was the next to last one to get a seat. The gate agent who didn’t ask for my name tells me I was all the down at the bottom of the list. While I am glad that I got on I wish I knew what method is use to get your name on the stand by list?"
Pros: "Leg space"
Pros: "Complimentary beverages."
Cons: "Chicken and pasta for dinner"

Pros: "The crew was very professional, hejpful and had good attitude towards the passengers. This made the flight easy and enjoyable."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was excellent. Service with a smile."
Cons: "We almost missed the flight sitting right in front of the gate. No announcements could be heard in the gate area and when we asked, they said they were already removing our luggage, Very odd. Food was terrible! Choices were pasta and cold chicken salad. I had the pasta, which was bland ravioli in two bland sauces. I was surprised, because I had experienced better food on recent international flights."
Cons: "Not being to check our tickets on line"
Cons: "Lost baggage. No one told us anything till after an hour"
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."

Cons: "I couldnt check in online and reserve my seats"
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Cons: "Long wait for de-Icing. Got on and off the plane 3 times. First wait was 1 hour, but plane aborted takeoff. Second plane waited at gate with all aboard for 2-1/2 hours and never got slot and de-planed. Third plane waited 1-1/2 hours for de-Icing and finally we were headed home. Arrived 8.5 hours after schedule."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"
Pros: "The plane was really nice, food was good. I had a pleasant time."
Cons: "Let me just say that I’m a loyal Delta costumer until now. The flight attendants (the two women) were an absolute nightmare. They were so rude and condescending. I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."
Cons: "Trying too hard to fit as many as possible"
Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hrs. The next flight to Atl left and reached earlier"
Pros: "The staff are wonderful and helpful. Best wishes to Delta. Please keep the great employees."
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived on time. Seat was ok. Meal was ok. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Long wait at immigration in Paris (not Delta's fault)"
Pros: "It was quick and on time relatively smooth flights with little turbulance."
Cons: "Economy seats are too small you literally can't move your elbow without hitting the person next to you. And there was no point at which we weren't all touching legs."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats too close together."
Cons: "It was delayed by 4 hours"
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: "Cramped hot plane sitting in sun for half hour with no announcements"
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "The bathrooms were incredible dirty. I take longhaul flys very often and Delta definitely has the dirtiest I've seen! Bathrooms were very dirt on both flys (from and back to Rio)."
Cons: "In a 6h flight, they only served drinks once. I saw the crew member once with a tray of glasses with water, but he ran out before getting to our seat and never came back. I was glad I hadn't finished a bottled water I had purchased earlier at the airport."
Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Layover time"
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "The Delta flight service was much better than the Air France flight I took on the previous leg."
Pros: "Well trained, professional, highly efficient flight attendant, and what is more important, in good mood during the whole the flight"
Cons: "The mobile application Air France didn't know the city or airport Dubai. Often same thing happens on the android application work Sheremetievo airport in Moscow"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."
Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "Bag was sent straight to NY although Norwegian screwed it up. Am yet to receive my luggage."
Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Amazing crews!"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort, food could have been better."
Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Cons: "No space for legs. No food (just snacks). Very high temperature inside the aircraft. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."
Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"
Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Pros: "The cabin crew was super patient and accommodating of the passengers."
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Pros: "Boarding staff helpful with Disabilities; food services quick and pleasant; interior cabin temps appropriate."
Cons: "Why is boarding so prolonged? 1-Small children and elders cannot stand for 20/30 minutes 2-Why are various sections (particularly Economy), no longer boarded by rows. and from rear first...so people don’t clog aisles, step over others, injure or be injured by heavy overhead moves?"
Pros: "Good size plane. It didn’t end up being full so there was plenty of room to move around. Quick flight and easy."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."
Cons: "Leg space."
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Cons: "It is very difficult to get around CDG airport with a disabled person. There is no shuttle. By the time we got to check in, we were ten minutes late. They would not check us in, and we paid over $700 to change tickets to the next flight. When I complained, I was told to stop being rude or I would get no ticket at all. My mother is 94 years old and we did the best we could given the circumstance."
Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."
Pros: "Boarding was on time"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"
Cons: "Couldn't make the connection....Overall....an aweful experience!"
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Pros: "Easy, fast, comfortable, no hassles"
Pros: "Plenty of seat space"

Cons: "The room between seats is unbearable."
Pros: "What’s not to like!"
Pros: "The check in process was much better in the CFG airport than SFO. Very organized."
Cons: "The food was mediocre on this flight. The seats also are surprisingly uncomfortable."
Cons: "Disappointed to get delayed due to control tower issues at CdG. Landed more than 30 mins late in London"
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "Personal treatment I have received as I was with a 7 months baby. An agent helps me to carry my hand luggages up to the plane entrance and to pass in priority"
Cons: "2 hours delayed..."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly"
Cons: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!"
Pros: "Standard stuff"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Pros: "Food, drinks, and general service on board were all very nice"
Cons: "Airport experience at cdg was atrocious. Took more than an hour to check in and it was a complete zoo."
Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."
