Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "No ear plugs in my amenity kit??"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "See previous comments."
Cons: "See previous comments."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly for the most part. There seems to be a chance in the way they interact with customers. It's noticeable. The food still is not bad, not great. Drink selection was pretty extensive and impressive. Free wifi for messaging apps is great."
Cons: "Electrical plug is right at your knee level. Bread is rock hard an inedible. Plane felt very dry compared to other Delta planes. Would be good to know when the Wifi will be off (as it is off as we "approach the North Pole"). I wish we didn't have to repack bags that are over 52lb."
Pros: "I like flying delta. They always serve drinks first"
Cons: "It’s such a long flight. Not your fault."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paying for seats"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Sleeping was too uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very comfortable seats"
Pros: "After a delay of over 1 1/2 due to weather, we boarded and then waited for luggage. Then our pilot said our weight was too high so we sat and burned off fuel, which delayed us a half hour."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "Quick and easy."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Cons: "It was scheduled so late at night."
Cons: "Crowded seatibg"
Pros: "Entertainment available"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "My upgrade was fabulous!"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"
Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
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"
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."

Cons: "Lost two pieces of luggage"
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Online check in was very good. Liked the ability to select free seats ahead of 24hr window. Liked being air side for the whole trip Detroit airport Terminal A was good. Free WiFi 50mb + awesome. Crew were friendly and efficient Will do this trip again."
Cons: "Seat always seem uncomfortable after 3hrs anywhere! And more leg room would always help. Food was OK liked the choice of 3 meals difficult to do quality food for 200+ but keep trying to improve"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient. The seats were narrow, but as to be expected. Meals were fine. Will fly Delta again and again."
Cons: "Flight Minneapolis to Detroit was delayed which caused us to miss our original flight and go out a day later."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "We had to have the plane de-iced before we left but we still arrived in Houston earlier than originally planned. The flight was smooth and quick and with a flight that wasn't packed full I was very comfortable without a seat mate."
Pros: "Same as the previous flight! Very surprised to be a head of time"
Cons: "We were very cramped in the seats. No room to move! I could not use my laptop."
Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."
Cons: "Sat in airport for 8 hours while flight was delayed an hour at a time only to be cancelled after 8 hours of waiting. Had to rent a car and drive 10 hours to destination"
Cons: "This flight was significantly delayed while we waited for a late flight attendant to arrive. Delta offered us nothing but sad meaningless apologies. On top of that the PA system at the gate didn't work so finding out news as to what was going on was extremely difficult."
Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."
Pros: "On time, and direct."
Cons: "The spacing between seats has gone too far. The man in front of me caused my knees great pain when reclining."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Kept us updated throughout a long delay."
Cons: "We should have reached our destination at 7:40PM. We finally arrived about 9:50pm. We were held at the gate for about two hours while a mechanical issue was solved. The plane was not equipped with WiFi/internet and the entertainment was poor. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Got my first class seat, smooth ride, early arrival"
