Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The crew was overly aggressive with mask policy enforcement. They patrolled the aisles and routine pointed at passengers directing them in a hostile manner to keep their masks on their faces, even when they were trying to eat or drink. They also threatened customers by stating it was a federal law several times. It was very uncomfortable to say the least. I will not fly delta again by choice."

Cons: "It got delayed multiple times."
Cons: "Broken plane. Why not take better care?"
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no reasonable alternative. Ended up driving."
Cons: "We experienced a one hour ground delay at Sea-Tac which was unrelated to our airline. The pilot kept the passengers informed with timely updates, and we finally departed about when the pilot predicted we'd get away."
Pros: "The plane was 2 hours late and I could not get home. Missed the connection to Greenville at 11:38. They told me there were no hotels in Atlanta and I would have to stay in the airport and then take the 8:55 am fight to Greenville. That took an hour in line and there was no help."
Cons: "The pilot was awesome. He flew as fast as he could to help anyone make their connection but it didn’t help. But I appreciate him trying. Just frustrated that being military I didn’t get to board earlier or that they didn’t help me find a way home"
Cons: "More room."
Pros: "Preboarded and all went smooth and quick"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The turbulence. Poor california git lits of smoke."

Pros: "On time flight courteous service"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and we made up plenty of time when we were only 15 mins late for take off."
Cons: "Baggage broke our baby stroller. Banged up, heavy deep scratches, and won’t lock properly nor will it release the brake phone portly where one wheel won’t unlock without much luck. Waiting to see how they correct this very expensive issue. And the vegan tapas option for food was not good at all. Ended up staying hungry for the duration of the flight. But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."
Cons: "Crew did not offer me/ another passenger the complimentary drink/ snack. And made a face when I asked for a drink later."

Cons: "The entertainment system & WiFi were out. Wasn’t able to charge my phone either as the outlets weren’t functioning properly."
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Cons: "Delay was over an hour"
Pros: "Loved the swift checking in at Seatac, being picked out of the Special check-in line, tended to by a Ndeye, smooth all the way through to the gate. Also liked that the plane's arrival at Schiphol was only 30 minutes later than initial ETA after long delay at Seatac. Also liked the many snacks."
Cons: "Prolonged delay of flight departure. Choices of entertainment, especially movies."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving JFK. I paid extra for Comfort Plus and had the most uncomfortable seat ever. My back ached during and after the flight. Absolutely the worst seat ever that I have had flying. While it was a short flight we were supposed to get serviced during the flight, but there was no cabin service unless you were in 1st class. So much for the perks of Comfort Plus as there were none. Not even a glass of water. Wow! When we landed late obviously because we left late we were late and there was no ground crew to get our plane to the gate so we sat for over 1/2 hour on the taxi way waiting for ground crew to be available for us to get to the gate. To add insult of injury when we did get to go to the gate there was no gate available for use so we had to deplane in the rain down the emergency stairs. They said that if you had a problem with the steep stairs that they would make other accommodations. Probably would have been another delay so we all carefully went down the steep slippery stairs. I doubt that the stairs met any OHSA or safety requirements except for emergency issues. They were wet and slippery. This was the absolute worst trip that I have taken with Delta. It will seriously influence my future trip decisions."
Cons: "Not being on time. Not delivering service stated. Sitting on a taxi way for extra time. Having to disembark down steep slippery stairs, basically an emergency exit. This trip was late from start to finish."
Cons: "not prepared in Maintenance to fix a very small problem in an efficient timeframe. Also, this plane was very dirty ..bathroom, walls, seat rails, floors....not good Delta"
Cons: "Flight delay 5+ hours poor Service"
Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."
Cons: "Partner site said it was Aeromexico. First flight was delta so different check bag policy for internal flight that cost me $80. Screw you all"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Pros: "Pushed back early, short taxi, took off one minute after scheduled departure, smooth flight, landed a half hour before scheduled time."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hrs, as a result, I missed my connection, had to stay overnight at a hotel"
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Pros: "The crew were incredibly friendly. The copilot helped me gate-check my bag before he boarded when the bag didn't fit into the overhead bin."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Going into the security check point (immigration) lost my connection from Atlanta to Richmond Va there was just a few CBP officers working at that time but other than that was great"
Cons: "Super small plane"
Pros: "Nothing about it was good. They made us Americans feel so unwanted."
Cons: "The staff was rude"
Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."
Cons: "Flight was repeatedly delayed. Ended up being over 3 hours late to depart due to weather. Another delay due to mechanical problems."
Pros: "seating at row 2a was roomy enough only because the seat in front was empty do no danger of a recline. The service was excellent, entertainment options excellent and products in bathroom are nice - Malin & goetz. The captain came out and greeted everyone, which I appreciated"
Cons: "The food served for dinner was not great. Pasta with a mushroom sauce. Sauce was really soupy. I'm not really crazy about the snack basket options - not enough savory and no chocolate. The seats on the new 737-900 are not comfortable"
Cons: "Old plane. No seat back entertainment. No USB ports"
Cons: "The AC was off while we were waiting to takeoff so it never felt cool in the cabin for the hour(ish) long flight we had. I don’t know if it was the size of plane that made it so we couldn’t have that on while taxiing/waiting our turn to take off or what, but it was too hot and stuffy onboard in Texas on the tarmac. Our next flight from Dallas to Huntsville, AL had the AC on the entire time we were waiting our turn/taking off- the plane was newer and slightly bigger. Not sure what the deal was but it made the flight pretty miserable."
Cons: "Communication. I cannot speak with anyone at flyus about a refund. Qatar airways denied boarding to ALL passengers heading to Saudi Arabia, I was left stranded in Dallas, and could not contact ANYONE."
Pros: "The aircraft was very clean, neat and well maintained. The crew was friendly. Process of checked-in luggage was seamless and straightforward."
Cons: "I found the istructions on some restricted items to be confusing and contradictory between instructions at the airport, the AA website and the TSA website. The agent at the counter was well-informed, though, and it all ended up going well."
Pros: "The touch screens had a good selection of movies and tv, which was very nice."
Cons: "The crew pretty much ignored us, not friendly at all."
Cons: "Logan is the worst. We landed early and it took over an hour to get our luggage. It is soooo slow"

Pros: "The crew was very polite and helpful as the flight attendant was still new."
Cons: "It was FREEZING on the plane."
Pros: "We got there safe. The flight was smooth and ryhe crew was friendly"
Cons: "The plane door wouldn’t lock so we were delayed a while. The food cost too much so all you get is a cookie and a cup of coffee and the bag cost $30 to check. I miss the days of complimentary services."
Pros: "Yes, crew were great"
Cons: "Checkin was seamless. flight comfortable and pleasant. Unfortunately not much can be done about the worst part, which was total immigration disorganization on arrival at JFK. Coming from Rome which is a huge airport, it was shameful to see the difference. Sigh."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Pros: "Overall is a good flight"
Pros: "I got to converse with the pilots before getting on board, and they were super awesome guys. Flight attendants were attentive and checked in frequently enough."
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Poor accommodation for the flight delays. We had to wait 4 hours in line to change our flights because we missed our flights. Not enough staff."
Cons: "Staff at las “snippy” toward other locations regarding “we make sure that WE get out flights out in time so be ready to move...” . Leaving on time is nice but don’t be crappy towards other locations publicly, we don’t care about your little rivalry..."
Pros: "Attentiveness of crew and meeting my needs"
Cons: "More leg room/space and a FREE sandwich. I’ll take one is those."
Cons: "Two hour delay including 20 minutes to get flight data because on board computer not functioning. Usual knee in chest seats on commuter jet."
Cons: "Didn’t fly"
Cons: "Food options were just snacks. On a 4 hour flight? What??"
Cons: "All flights should include WiFi, and or entertainment, and better snack options. Flights out of and to Burlington are very expensive!"
Cons: "Jetblue Have a miserable attitude to their customer"
Pros: "They let me sleep"
Cons: "Not enough food options"
Pros: "Flight was delayed so much that I would miss my connection so I never went and am on a new flight today on a different airline"
Pros: "SJU counter crew, in flight crew and flight was SUPER on time!!!"
Cons: "Nothing wrong."
Cons: "The Avianca flight was over 4 hours late. We missed our connecting flight with Star Peru, and had to buy new tickets with Viva Air. We spoke with an Avianca supervisor who told us it was not her company's fault the flight was late. Avianca had a flight that night to our destination but they refused to find space for us, or to issue some type of refund or voucher for our lost time and money."
Pros: "Go Go inflight entertainment is available for free if you have an ear phone and device to connect."
Cons: "No power outlet to recharge your device, so needed to use external battery to last the length of flight."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Cons: "All of abo e, many delays, no usb plug or refuse to show me, charge for luggage, no headphone."
Pros: "Great hard working crew. Good food and snacks. On time!!!"
Cons: "Poor crowd control in airport- monitor did not show gate even 20 minutes before the flight after the gate changed , then it changed 3 different times. Few Avianca staff available to answer questions/clear up the confusion. It was actually comical. On the previous flight Lima-> Cusco, they bumped us off our flight even with confirmed tickets, said the "flight was full" (obviously oversold) and said we'd get a $50 voucher and asked me to write my email on a piece of scrap paper, no receipt."
Cons: "It was an eight and a half hour flight that took place in the night. My seat was broken so it did not recline. I also have trouble sleeping on flights and thought there would be the opportunity to watch TV/movies but this was not the case unless you wanted to pay extra. Most international flights already have this built in for free and should be included in the cost. What a disappointment flying on American was. I will take LAN or Copa from now on as my other options."
Pros: "Boarding was very quick, they called the groups quickly with no lag time in between."
Cons: "I think this was the most cramped airplane I have been on. It was so uncomfortable and I would think that they would take this into consideration since it was a red eye flight."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hrs and then sat on runway upon arrival at ohare. I was forced to check my rollerboard even though I've fit it perfectly in the overhead compartment just yesterday on my previous flight (also American airline)."
Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Pros: "They moved me to a seat of my choice because I was in a middle seat with a infant."
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, but rushed."
Cons: "- plane was extremely hot, no A/C until boarding was complete and on the runway. So about 45 minutes of heat. - no entertainment units - no food, just pretzels and cookies, one drink - seats not comfortable, even with Main Cabin Extra"
Cons: "Three gate changes and 45 minute delay. Same happened two years ago"
Cons: "Airline had no gates at destination and made us sit on board for an hour after landing. Should have been protactive and found air stairs to disembark instead of forcing passengers stuck on hot plane."
Pros: "Staff was nice. Very full flight."
Cons: "Annoying passengers that are sitting in the rear of the plane putting their luggage in the front bins forcing people in front to go beyond their seats for a bin further back. Screws up the flow of boarding and deboarding."
Pros: "Safely took off, flew, landed. They gave a biscoff instead of bland pretzels"
Cons: "Couldn't understand pilot."
Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "However, the customer service was horrible and very unprofessional. I had to leave a loved one behind because nobody knew the rules and regulations on bringing back a pet! Now, I don't have my dog Tyson with me and my fiancé surprised me with him as an early Christmas gift. I won't be flying with American Airlines again!)"
Pros: "the people were very helpful and understanding of the situation."
Cons: "that my flight was late causing a chain reaction of all other flights to be useless and thus changing all my flights and giving me another day in an airport."
Pros: "Excellent, friendly service by flight attendant, Amy Sparks! I felt very welcomed and relaxed, especially having just flown 15 hours from Sydney back to the States."
Cons: "Engine noise was loud seated at the rear of the aircraft."
Pros: "Flights were on time and staff all were smiling and kind."
Cons: "Liked everything!!"
Pros: "The airplane had screens that tracked the flight progress, which was nice once we finally left."
Cons: "The delay leaving Boston caused me major ground transportation problems in Philadelphia. Also boarding agents did a lousy job getting people to check their carry on bags, knowing with a full flight they wouldn't have room. This further delayed take off."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "It was a standard boarding. The standard ride. I have nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Food was bad even for airline standards. Seats uncomfortable. There were 2 female crew members who seemed like they didn't want to be there or cared. Movie selection was limited with not many new releases. One of the worst international flights I've been on for a long time."
Cons: "Quick flight on time and no issues."
Cons: "Our bag was tagged as Priority, and was literally the last one off the plane. We clearly have different definitions of that word."
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 4 hours. Took another flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfy and super clean"
Cons: "The staff never greeted us or said good bye. They didn’t really smile at all. Didn’t really seem to be happy or acknowledge us"
Pros: "It was a flight."
Cons: "The glory days of the airlines are gone."
Pros: "I had the row of seats to myself and lots of leg room."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. We watched while the next flight was loading on time. We had to wait 2 hours!"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, flight on time. Ambiance = none, comfort = bare minimum, better than sewerage on the Mayflower and that's the norm."
Cons: "What I wrote above was meant to describe our experience from Chicago to Burlington- not Milwaukee to Chicago. Although, we had a delay in Milwaukee too. Overall, everything was only fair"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks. Good legroom"
Cons: "I chose our seats online upon booking about 5 months ago and when we got to check in we were told we weren’t even sitting together for a 3.5 hour flight. Not sure why we got leftover seats when we chose already And booked months ago"
Pros: "Our flight attendants were delightful, courteous, and helpful, but the flight had ZERO entertainment available without additional payment (even the flight tracker cost extra money)."
Cons: "I didn’t like that the data before our departure our flight departure was changed from 1 PM to 1:30 PM and the day of it was changed again to 1:18, but then was delayed again. That issue made us late to Chicago which caused us to miss our connecting flight to Minneapolis by 4 minutes. 4 MINUTES!!! . So as I write this review I am sitting in ohare at 5:17 AM awaiting my flight when I DHOULD have been in bed in Minneapolis for the past 8 hours"
Cons: "When boarding, the agent said we had to check our rollaboards because they were our of overhead bin space. Hen we entered the plane, we saw that the entire back half of the plane had empty bins, but by that time it was too last to retrieve our bags."
Pros: "Enjoyed the extra space from Economy Plus - really made a difference from the complete sardine cans in regular economy. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Unfortunately the crew blocked the path to the toilets in the back of the plane for over an hour... I've never seen a crew move so slow. Also, the DirecTV screens in front of each seat were annoying, as they put the controls on the armrest so they were constantly being turned on accidentally."
Pros: "Loved the direct flight from Newark to Costa Ruca which arrives in less than 5 hours, crew was very helpful to other passengers with connecting flight info."
Cons: "Typical cramped seating, need to pay to watch movies/direct TV and food, minuscule snack pack."
Pros: "The direct flight was really nice."
Cons: "That entertainment had an extra cost."
Cons: "Never got to dc"
Pros: "All the effort to make my need for wheelchair problem free"
Pros: "I was moved up from Row 25 to row 9"
Cons: "Price to watch a movie was 7.99"
Cons: "They did not let me change my flight date"
Pros: "I had a good amount of time between each flight, every plane was waiting at the gate when I arrived, every flight arrived early."
Cons: "We kept getting delayed by 20minutes (for 4 hours) without any communications/updates from the staff as to what the problem was or when a solution might be found."
Cons: "I reboarded the same plane for this leg of the trip. The same issue with the air being unbearably cold."
Cons: "For some reason reserved seats don't mean much on a United full flight. My wife and I spent the 3+ hour flight 12 rows apart. When we tried to speak to the gate agent, explaining that this was our honeymoon, she didn't even let me finish my sentence before interrupting and saying there was nothing she could do. At least look a customer in the eye, listen to their concerns and apologize."
Pros: "But they did do a "quick turnaround""
Cons: "flight was 2 + hours late."
Pros: "Every member of the crew was really helpful, especially since I had a cello with me. They helped me with tips on how the airport and their boarding system worked, and I'm sure they are just as good with families and people carrying heavier luggage."
Pros: "Gate staff were courteous."
Cons: "I had about an hour layover in which I had time to use the restroom and buy lunch. I did these things, then went to wait at the assigned gate. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to me, they changed the departing gate for my connecting flight. The concourse area is so crowded and noisy, and announcements are only heard in the immediate gate are, that, though I was sitting only one gate over, I did not hear the boarding calls and missed my flight. I sat in Newark airport for six hours (which included a maintenance problem, gate change and 1 more hour delay) until the departure of the next flight to Burlington."
Cons: "Again, United changed my original departure time from Burlington, VT to San Diego (via Chicago) from 10 am to 6:30 am. This meant an overnight stay in Burlington and loss of sleep and my free breakfast. In addition, I was stuck with 4+ hr layover in Chicago. The Chicago terminal was a mass of swarming people. Horrible!"
Cons: "ABSOLUTELY ZERO EMPATHY WHEN 2 MINUTES LATE TO GATE... Was actually mean and let 2 airline crew on while we stood there... plane there... our bags on... especially when United needs a better profile!!"
Cons: "No fee for movies on international flight"
Pros: "Staff did offer two ten-dollar food vouchers as an apology for the inconvenience. They seemed to try to keep us updated on delays."
Cons: "There were probably ten delays over the course of about ten hours. Communication among staff, aircrew, and maintenance teams seemed very poor. Really didn't seem like people knew what they were doing. Very unprofessional and perhaps somewhat uneccessary."
Cons: "Had the most uncomfortable seats on the plane seats didn't recline as well . Also was giving no food not even a snack for a international flight which was absolutely redicoulous. Had to pay for bags when I fly American Airlines or southwest they are free. So your prices really aren't that great after you have to pay for everything."
Pros: "No flight"
Pros: "Gate agent did the best she could with the (limited) info she was given."
Cons: "Multiple hour delay for what was originally described as a 'quick maintenance thing'. In addition, after a 2 hour delay we had a gate change to the far far end of a different terminal."
Pros: "This flight was canceled due to weather. We rented a car and drove back. During the drive we experienced very brief periods of drizzle rain. The weather radar showed no signs of bad weather in the area. I am all for safety but Is light rain really a valid reason for cancelling a flight, or was this more about a flight that was not fully booked?"
Pros: "No think special!"
Cons: "Small space and no entertainment on an international flight."
Pros: "All luggage had to go in the belly of the plane. Made boarding way faster. Clean aircraft with pretty comfortable seats."
Pros: "Great short flight"
Cons: "Lack of room in seats and no legroom."
Pros: "Nothing I can think of"
Cons: "Delays with limited information about why or when it might be resolve. Plane extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "There's no spave at all between your seat and the one in Front of you. I couldn't leave my seat to go to the restrooms without shamefully jumping into the two gentlemen's sitting next to me"
Cons: "leg room and cabin temp was too high"
Pros: "Flight proceeded as scheduled."
Pros: "I liked that half the plane was single seats."
Cons: "We had to detour for a medical emergency that didn't really turn out to be one so we were delayed like an hour in getting to our destination. There was no on board entertainment."
Pros: "Flight on time and arrived early"
Cons: "flew delta on way down to liberia and they did not charge for any entertainment."
Pros: "No delays."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The delays"
Cons: "paying for baggage no food service"
Pros: "Courtesy of staff"
Cons: "After the flight was delayed a hour and a half, they said we would have complimentary TV access, but it there was no tv sign for more than half of the flight."
Cons: "Confirmation number N89G3L. Literally just look at what I had to go through to get from Denver to Liberia and back. In total; 3 cancellations, 9 delays and had to leave the plane after being boarded 3 times in a row at Houston. Unacceptable. I would like to get money back for this trip, as it took off two days of traveling and took us well over 48 hours of travel time within airports. Is there any way I can be put in contact with someone from United Airlines about this? Thank you."
