Pros: "Crew from Washington to Cancún were extremely rude"
Cons: "Smile"

Cons: "Everything was fine... I should have packed a snack because I’m always hungry! Will travel Delta again!"

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I didn't get to continue the series I started watching on an earlier flight, as this plane had more limited options. We also waited on the tarmac an long time before take-off, waiting for a part to be delivered to our plane so we could take it to Indianapolis with us."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and had great personality. They anticipated any needs we had."

Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t have a window at all. The staff didn’t offer any snacks to us. My bag was the only one that didn’t make it while I had a plenty long layover."

Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."

Pros: "The plane was nice"
Cons: "I’m still sitting in Minneapolis so I would have liked to be at my destination. And I had to pay for the overnight accommodations."

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wish the seat was more comfortable. Landing was jittery and bumpy."

Cons: "Delayed takeoff by an hour because the plane was too heavy. Had to kick 8 passengers off the flight before they would takeoff."

Pros: "The flight attendant from IAD to MSP called Bernadette was wonderful!"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Super comfortable seats. Lots of movie options."
Cons: "Food was not very good"

Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."

Pros: "Luggage plane to carousel at Atlanta way too slow"
Cons: "Smooth flight, more than average beverages serving; food fine. Seats too small."

Pros: "Crew trying their best to keep passengers happy. Arrival on time."
Cons: "Incredibly bad, mostly unhealthy, overprocessed food. Glad I brought my own. Very narrow seats. No opportunity to upgrade to economy plus. One day you will have casualties from minimizing further and further the seating space until even normal- sized people collapse from lack of blood circulation. (On my outbound flight from Atlanta to D' dorf an oversized seat neighbor literally flowed partly into my seat, making matters worse.) A major concern: stewardesses support the general fashion of darkening the cabin in the interest of movie watchers and general quiet. What about my right to daylight, especially during a day flight from D' dorf to Atlanta? It's helpful against jetlag. 11 hours in a darkened pipe followed by arrival at night time are unhealthy. The film program is not intetesting enough to justify this decision."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."

Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."

Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"

Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."

Cons: "Tv"

Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."

Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."

Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"

Pros: "I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars..."

Cons: "Delayed two hours"

Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Pros: "Landed 45 minutes early! Allowed me to take an earlier flight Detroit to Boston which made me really happy"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine . Just like ALL fights these days."

Cons: "There delay"

Pros: "The staff was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The wifi did not work, my seatbelt was literally broken/unattached, they had no coffee. This may seem minor to some but when you are at the airport at 4 a.m with a child you don't expect all yhese things to happen."

Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "exit row - good leg room; new storage compartment was good."
Cons: "New seats = hard; got uncomfortable after about an hour. Wish there was a way to disconnect folding tray from behind seat - person behind kept dropping it, drumming on it, open it and closing it - really a nuisance."

Pros: "Crew were very friendly and courteous as well as very helpful."
Cons: "Can't play games at the IFE ... Freezing."

Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."

Pros: ".....delta in Washington was great changed my flight so I didn't have delay !!!!!! Will always use"

Pros: "Flight departed on time. Crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Boarding seem to be chaotic, no boarding by group or seat number."

Pros: "As previously stated hated having to go through security again"
Cons: "Chocolate"

Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"

Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"

Pros: "Everything except delay"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "24 hr delay. I was supposed to fly Lufthansa and had to deal with idiots from United from Jacksonville to IAD."

Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."

Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"

Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "na"

Cons: "Noise in aircraft. Transit time between flights was too short."

Pros: "Excellent and professional crew members"
Cons: "Nothing, the flight was smooth, most enjoyable"

Cons: "The food offering"

Pros: "Overall, an incredible experience!!!"
Cons: "The food was excellent"

Pros: "I have used Kayak for years without issue. This time I was flying SAS for the first time. The plane broke and so that was the first huge delay SAS had terrible customer service. They reminded me several times that I was not a preferred customer and that I had bought my ticket through kayak. This is the reason they gave for lack of help. It was frustrating to say the least. I’m not sure how they expect to gain repeat customers if they treat first time customers like that."

Cons: "My luggage was lost and still not found"

Pros: "Great flight on SAS"
Cons: "Very good food and outstanding choice of movies as entertainment."

Cons: "We could not order vegetarian, so arrived hungry."

Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing was complimentary"

Pros: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew is great. Did everything within their abilities to be comfortable"
Cons: "The cabin was too warm for the duration of the flight. The movie content wasn't that great. Also, the headphone jack on my seat was temperamental and I lost sound quite a bit. I wish they had more vegetables in their dish"

Pros: "The comfort and technology on the aircraft."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Not full. Kind crew."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full and everyone seemed to have at least two cases. This caused lots of jostling for space in the lockers"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Boarding was shambolic and the 737 is not as nice as the new A320 in terms of comfort or amenity. Boarding was all over the place - and the gate agents clearly need extra people around for a full flight. One person for 170 ppl didn't feel right."

Cons: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."

Pros: "Crew were excellent, had a row to myself, luggage turned up quickly"
Cons: "No landing cards given!"

Cons: "Should at least serve some water"

Pros: "Seating was great, bumped to business class w/ extra chg."
Cons: "Earphones not working properly and when I ask they reset TV. Never came to ck on me afterwards. Not available to to ask.no vanilla icecream, only chocolate."

Cons: "Unable to select seat/baggage until 22 hours before flight because not booked through SAS. Thought bagged was checked in online and had to pay More than the cost of the flight. Flight was delayed due to mechanical problem. Cabin very warm throughout flight."

Pros: "Boarding was easy, I'm a Star Alliance Gold member so was able to get on board first. There were significant delays leaving Dulles and our connection was tight, but SAS held the flight so I give them props for that."
Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful, but I can usually overlook that. What really got me was this: YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR BEER & WINE ON THIS INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT! Never in my 25 years of international travel have I seen this from a mainstream carrier. For this fact alone, I will never fly this airline again. You also have to pay to pick your seats in advance."

Pros: "boarding is different and they were talking over pa announcements at heathrow so you could not hear what to do. you go through one ticket agent to the down stairs to another ticket agent. everyone knowing what to expect crowded around the second ticket agent and there because of that forget about boarding by row or zone you couldn't get throught the crowd. plus the second ticket agent was right next to the downstairs escalator so people coming late got on before us."

Pros: "Timely or even earlier arrival. Generally, very good experience"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The food was very good surprisingly"
Cons: "Again the seats are too tight and they should not be allowed to recline"

Cons: "Delay after delay. Screaming kid"

Cons: "In-flight entertainment did not work, veggie meal I ordered was not there, and when I asked if I could have one of the extra business class meals, I was told no. I further asked if I could just have some chips from the snack basket and that was met with a death glare from the female flight attendant. All in all, the flight attendants were rude and unwilling to accept any ownership in the poor conditions of this 9 hour flight."

Cons: "Out of all the staff on board they did not give me and a few others those blue customs form, so we made a huge line and when we got to the agent he told us we had to go all the way around fill one out and then come back. The attendants new that those were necessary why so many yet not one made sure we got them lousy service. I wish we got a crew that wasnt so insecure and cared more about providing a good service instead of caring so much over their appearance. I rather have good efficient staff what they look like doesnt matter to me."

Pros: "The choice of movies and tv shows was excellent. Also picture on tv was very good."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane."
Cons: "No free alcohol. Limited food options."

Cons: "Not very many current movies, very cramped."

Pros: "The crew was very kind!"
Cons: "Tiny seats and no free drinks on an international flight....whats up with that?"

Cons: "Too much meat in meals."

Pros: "Flight was fine, service good, and our seat choice excellent."
Cons: "We left an iPad on board in Copenhagen and found that there was no way to inform SAS!"

Pros: "Comfy and good movies!"

Cons: "No individual seat control of airflow. The plane was very warm and there were no vents at each seat."

Cons: "Not even one bag was included!! And to add a bag is extremely expensive!!! Paid five hundred dkk for one bag!!! Terrible service as well!!!"

Pros: "Easy embarkation, helpful staff."
Cons: "Shock to discover that suitcases were not included in price of tickets purchased online. We had to pay the equivalent of $100 (australian) per case. My seat was extremely u comfortable as the cusihion was misshapen. The male passengers seated behind us were drinking alcohol and became loud and garrulous, making the trip most uncomfortable and unpleasant."

Pros: "Flight was Ok"
Cons: "Left till last to board flight. Case taken from me. Asked continually when I wld be taken as I am 83 and recovering from major operation. Told 45 minutes before flight but was taken 10 minutes ahead. Rush has left me very upset."

Cons: "I asked for water and was given half a cup, when I requested they fill the cup they said if I wanted more I had to buy it. In addition, when we left the plane everyone pushed their way off instead of following the order of the rows."

Pros: "All of it."
Cons: "None of it."

Cons: "Disorganization and unpreparedness."

Cons: "I was bumped off. So I liked nothing about that SAS flight."

Pros: "Flight was fine, cr"

Cons: "Lost luggage delivered today"

Pros: "Crew and new, spacious aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "Quick boarding and departed on time."
Cons: "Everything else. Air Lingus is like Ryan Air with an Irish accent. No space, terrible food, very low quality entertainment system with the sound muffled and barely audible."

Cons: "Many people missed their connection at Dublin. I had a horrible ~6hr wait. Aer Lingus did nothing to help or compensate."

Cons: "Flight delayed due to late arrival of aeroplane."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "We arrived late to Dublin because of weather and we’re going to miss our connection to Leeds so they rerouted us via Manchester but our bags, though tagged “Rush” did not make it on the new flight and we were without them for five days! we still had to get to Leeds so we had to pay for train tickets"

Cons: "Would have been excellent but it was 30mins late"

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "When I checked in, I was asked if I would consider taking a United flt instead of aerlingus. I agreed but the flight had already filled up so the woman checking me in offered to seat me at an exit row. However on check in I realized she gave me someone else’s ticket. It was disappointing. My first f"

Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Generally a smooth experience."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. Charging for drinks is out of character for a good airline. Go back to free non-alcoholic drinks."

Pros: "Good seats. Friendly crew. They were late serving the breakfast snack, must have not been watching the time, but it made me chuckle."
Cons: "The check-in at Washington Dulles was understaffed. Boarding was chaotic."

Cons: "Should have included meals on flights that are 8hrs."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Polite and friendly."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Food alright"

Pros: "When my flight was cancelled due to weather they got me on to another flight right away and I didn’t miss my connection. However I waited in line for an hour and a half, maybe I was lucky because I was near the beginning of the line. There was only one person for awhile helping re route people."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. The flight staff was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good. The plane arrived late, as a result we missed our connecting flight."

Cons: "This was not a British Airways flight. They should have done a better job of communicating that. I wasn't informed until I tried to check in online 24 hours before my flight."

Pros: "Check in was great. On board crew was excellent and very attentive. Many offerings of drinks and food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, free for all situation. Signage could have been better at the gate. One of the TV viewers/overhead lights didn’t work for our party. There was a large chatty group of people that were milling around, standing in aisle, talking loudly for much of the flight. I understand that there is only so much the crew could do about that."

Cons: "I had a 5 hour delay. I had to cancel the trip"

Pros: "Almost everything was good. Friendly crew, easy boarding, safe flight even with lots of air gusts (thanks to the pilots!)."
Cons: "Whatever fare Kayak provided was the worst seat (last row next to bathrooms). I wouldn't book through Kayak again and instead would go through the airline directly."

Pros: "Blankets and earphones provided."
Cons: "Couldn’t checkin at British Airways; there needs to be better signage at desk. Flight was delayed and we almost missed connection. Seat would not tilt back."

Pros: "1. Friendly staff 2. Good food on the plane"
Cons: "The cost of luggage - unfreaking real to have to pay for first suit case when flying overseas and they at a cost of $100 per item!!! Definitely not recommending this airline to my friends unless they are only taking carry-on luggage. The cabin room was more cramped then usual also but it was ok."

Pros: "The crew were very professional and courteous"
Cons: "No USB ports and no way to plug in one's personal earbuds. Sounds quality on the airline supplied earbuds was horrible. Gave up on the entertainment offerings and watched movies I had stored on my iPad. And really the worst food I've ever had on a flight."

Pros: "Uneventful"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The most uncomfortable plane that I have travelled on. Seat - unbearably uncomfortable. Toilet falling apart, parts of seats falling off."

Pros: "Boarding made sense. They boarded the back of the plane first. Kudos for that."
Cons: "The seat cushions were nonexistent. Less legroom than a mini backseat and no way to upgrade since I purchased on kayak...unless I was willing to pay $4000 more to get premium coach seats. Will not use kayak again."

Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was with my luggage and personal belongings the whole trip. Received my luggage 2days after returning home."

Pros: "Seats and service was excellent. Flight was on time and very organized."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I bought a BA flight because I am oneworld premium member. However, I learnt the flight was operated by Aer Lingus after I bought the ticket and I had no benefits."

Pros: "Goo entertainment on Dulles Dublin sector."
Cons: "It would help if ba would hilight fact that this is a code share with are linguistic. Seat were unbelievably small and had to walk to ends of earth for both the gate in Dulles and Dublin. No free food or drink on Dublin madrid sector but thankfully not full so I could stretch out. New planes on both sectors."

Pros: "Flight made great time! Boeing 757 was disappointing as it felt extremely crowded."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not very friendly or helpful (except the one in first class that help us out when needed). Never was asked for additional beverage and no extra with dinner."

Pros: "check in was efficient."
Cons: "purchase of beverages; lack of understanding food schedule"

Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"

Pros: "Staff was very cheery and thoughtful! Made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "No boarding gate was ever given to us, nor available by looking up online. Caused us to almost miss our flight. Very frustrating to be running around and even the information desk couldn't locate our boarding gate! Aircraft also old and worn down."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Slow crew service couldn't get coffee served beyond first 5-6 rows before landing. Crew just putting in time chatting with each other. Couldn't get boarding pass til morning of flight."

Pros: "Crew on board were very nice and very helpful.Apart from that I am struggling to see how this is a 4 star airline. It's a joke"
Cons: "AerLingus use a Boeing757 on this route and the seats are old, uncomfortable and many have dips in them.The entertainment system is ancient and had limited stuff on it. The food was as bad as airplane food gets. The 'beef' Shepard pie was lumpy and over salted. Also you must pay for beer and wine on this 4 star airline. They use "smart flies aer Lingus " as their advert tag line. In my opinion smart flies someone else"

Pros: "Short flight to London"
Cons: "There was no boarding pass issued for the Lon - Ny trip. Additionally, when we arrived to London, there was no direct transfer from our landing gate to our departure gate forcing us to have to exit and then reenter. There was no ground avail to assist either. Since the dub - Lon flight was delayed, we have 60 min to get a boarding passes / re renter security / & had to run to the flight which was a mile all with a 2 yr old."

Pros: "Good attention to detail without being in your face... very prompt"
Cons: "..."

Pros: "The in-flight experience and service."
