Cons: "Could've had us out the next morning on latam but they kept us there another nite. We missed half of our hunt in Argentina. Worst airline!!!!!"
Cons: "Night flights should include blankets and pillows. (at no extra cost) Just like a hotel. Traveling with bulky blankets and pillows in order to be able to sleep on a night flight is not always possible. JB provides eyemask and ear plugs, which is ridiculous. I can bring my own eyemask and ear plugs. I even paid extra for upgrade seats! The headrests are not adjustable and the recline is barely noticeable. It was a long 6 hour flight! No entertainment. I have flown other airlines to South America and been able to enjoy full feature recent release films, TV shows and games. Why can't JB figure out how to do that on their international flights? No meals. All other airlines offer meal service on their international flights. I pay as much for JB flights as I have for other airlines going to South America. The value for JB tickets just isn't there. To fly JB, picture yourself getting on board with your own pillows, blankets, entertainment and food. That about sums it up."

Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
Cons: "Was required to gate check my luggage through to baggage claim."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Cons: "TSA in Atlanta was a nightmare. Really just a little kindness would go a long way."
Cons: "I was on the way to the airport when I was notified of the 1st delay. I am sure Delta knew there were issues already and should have let me know earlier in the day. The delays kept increasing. We were offered snacks at the gate. That is it. No free drinks on the plane, no free premium movies. Very bad customer service. More explanations were needed as to the cause of the delay."
Pros: "Got to Richmond on time."
Cons: "Had the same problems with loading. Loaded from the front, not enough room for carry on, slow us down causing us to take off late. Made up for lost time though."
Cons: "I could not print my boarding pass, get it on email, get it at the airport. A waste of their time and mine. And makes no sense. It is some new policy of Delta. Not good"
Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
Pros: "yes, no on sat on my row coming or going"
Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."

Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"
Pros: "Seating had more space, the crew very relaxed and good humour as well as professionalism."

Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"
Cons: "The airline left my luggage behind at dfw"
Pros: "Boarding is orderly."
Cons: "Why aren’t seniors and parents with little kids allowed extra time to board? You have to pay for WiFi after the first hour? No kosher options for purchase in the food menu, clearly not looking out for all Americans."
Cons: "rerouted through Philadelphia."
Pros: "I like everything ."
Pros: "TB honestly I can’t say I liked anything about this particular flight. So nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by two hours leaving Fort Lauderdale. As a result of that delay I miss my connecting flight to Palm Springs. I was rebooked for a flight to smile Palm Springs the next day which I did not except. Then I was booked to leave Dallas to Los Angeles that flight was delayed also. To make matters worse my bags ended up in LA when they were supposed to be route it all the way to Palm Springs. I still don’t have my bags yet. Called three times and the representatives cannot reassure me of my bags on the way."

Pros: "On time, efficient loading and deplaning, attendants were fine."

Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."

Cons: "how long i had to wait"
Pros: "The seats new"

Pros: "The price More leg room"
Cons: "$55 cost for a carry-on that's ridiculous!!! Also when we got there we had to form a line all the way outside the terminal, then we had to get in another line, the terminals weren't working so we couldnt just print out a boarding pass for people like me that only had carryons. None of us knew what was going on it was ridiculous."
