Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "I had booked a window seat, the when I went to board, it was changed to an isle seat. I find that I dislike the sole due to the rudeness of people in general and I kept getting hit with purses and such from passing passengers."
Pros: "Crew from GNV to ATL was very pleasant."
Cons: "On time departure to ensure that I was able to catch connecting flight instead of missing it and being placed stand by on the next available flight."
Cons: "Being given seats at the gate. I like to choose my seat."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Good to have on board internet"
Cons: "Quicker boarding of passengers."
Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."
Cons: "Equipment used has seen better days. Seemed to have difficulty starting engines and aircraft had loud squealing hydraulic pump noises not typically encountered when flying the 717. A little disconcerting."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination."

Pros: "Delta Flights are always enjoyable and the staff is always treats you with courtesy"
Cons: "The only thing I don't understand is how the planes are loaded. and this is only a comment and I know you and others carriers have there way of doing things. I just don't understand why you load the first section of the plane first and the back of the plane last, It looks like you would want to load the back and come forward so everyone is not getting hit and stood over while everyone is loading."

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: "Almost everything besides the staff on the plane"
Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Pros: "Quick flight!"
Cons: "Didn't realize the last seat on the plane doesn't mean back."
Pros: "great staff . clean. current movies"
Pros: "Training on delta app usage and being hospitable to injured customers"

I️ stay in Vegas for 1 night and my ankle swells the next morning and I’m unable to move my legs. Sent to the hospital and have been in Vegas since 11/20"

Cons: "Can't change the weather. Flight was delayed a bit but they were very informative as they found out info."
Cons: "Everything was on time, but we had to sit on tje runway for more that 30 mins which made us late all around. But aside from that everything feom Delta from dropping of bags to Landing in Miami was perfect."

Cons: "My email read check into Aeromexico I could not check in the Aeromexico using my phone I was dropped off at the Aeromexico terminal after standing in line for half an hour I find I was in the wrong terminal I needed to be in a different terminal with Delta because Aeromexico even on my reservation read that does not fly to Tampa. I had to find a shuttle to another terminal the shuttlesare not marked it was very confusing"
Pros: "Seats were reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process was ok (they bused us over to the plane and then had us walking out halfway to the plane's stairs before frantically sending us back on the bus because the plane wasn't cleaned yet). Not a big deal but we were traveling with a 10 month old so miscommunications like that cause a larger inconvenience than usual. The real downer on the flight was when we needed hot water quickly to warm our infant's bottle. The stewardess had begun beverage service and was about 8 rows away from us. My wife hit the call button, expecting the stewardness to come over somewhat quickly. Instead, she just continued beverage service and got to us about 15 mins later. By that point it was too late and the baby was wailing from hunger. When we asked why, knowing that we had a small child, the stewardness didn't just push the cart forward and attend to us more quickly, she said she didn't want to do that. No apology, not even a sense of remorse. At the end of the day, a customer's experience will always be tainted by poor service and that is what we received on our flight."
Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"
Cons: "Everything!! I wanna be compensated for this nonsense I went through!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats were mostly comfortable and having the movies on the headrest is a wonderful idea!"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and some of us had to check our bags but atleast it was free of charge. They should work on that."
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: "Staff friendly and helpful at gate. Aircrew staff handled one hour rain delay on taxiway with frequent updates and good attitude. New plane, and convenient electronic support."
Cons: "Peanut allergy on flight. No peanuts. No other options."
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "we got a bottle of water and some pretzels"

Pros: "Free reschedule of flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled for no reason."
Cons: "Is not the airline fault. Is thanksgiving weekend. The boarding was extremely slow because So many wheelchairs, . The weather and Chicago airport doesn’t help neither. The capitan take a time to go out and explain what we had to expect. That was a plus. Still for us is our #1 choice"
Pros: "Crew was thoughtful."
Cons: "Flight departure delayed due to something about waiting for a travel log."
Pros: "The crew was fine the seats were horrible. I will not fly American again as this is the second trip I took in the last year one to Japan one to Greece. Both times I felt like a sardine."
Cons: "2 inches in both directions."
Pros: "The ground crew were very courteous but I feel they were not being completely honest regarding the delays. It felt like we were being given false hope that the flight was taking off soon."
Cons: "We were boarded thinking we were taking off soon. Except the delay continued for another hour and a half I found out. I had exited the plane having been given the option of staying in Gainesville in a hotel provided by the airline and being booked on a flight the next day."
Pros: "It was a red eye. So good to be seated, quiet. not too crowded."
Cons: "It was really GOOD overall."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful, they seemed to have a positive attitude and worked with passengers like they really enjoyed their job."

Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"

Cons: "the seats barely recline and were lacking sufficient cushioning for the bottom, my tailbone area was very sore after the flight"
Pros: "Comfortable good service and friendly attendants and good price"
Pros: "First class seating comfort and service. Even my flight in the main cabin was relatively comfortable, but I'm a smaller stature person so... On time promise kept every flight."
Cons: "Extreme noise from the plane at certain times (mostly takeoff which can't be helped, I guess) Sitting in the first row of first class you get the light from the flight attendant kitchen area right in your face (Seat 1A-3A specifically)"
Pros: "New Plane interior"
Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"
Cons: "The plane was so hot, by the time we landed everyone was literally dripping from sweat. It was so uncomfortable that it was cooler outside of the plane even though it was 83 degrees when we landed."
Pros: "New plane. Excellent service. Absolutely a delightful experience."
Pros: "The seats were comfy and spacious."
Pros: "The amount of things to keep you entertained for the long flight"
Cons: "I had to have my seat up the entire route so that made a very uncomfortable flight was never able to really rest"

Pros: "Overall good service."
Pros: "The staff was nice and the pilot tried his best to keep us informed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50 minutes. Then once on the plane we were stuck sitting on the plane for hours. Didn’t end up landing in ATL until 1:45am. And then had to wait another 15-20min for them to open the door and bring the ramp to get off the plane. Horrible and exhausting experience!"
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly"
Cons: "No individual movie screen. Entertainment bad for an international flight. I paid for selected seats but did not receive, instead our family was scattered about the plane."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly nice and respectful, the food and entertainment were as expected for coach."
Cons: "The flight from London was massively delayed - so much that we were forced to spend the night in Dallas. The airline paid for our hotel and food, but the issue is that we came to visit family and we have a very limited timeframe. Missing out on a day with the family because of a delay was rather upsetting and frustrating."
Cons: "Delayed by nearly 2 hours, missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Short flight, available texting for t mobile customers"
Cons: "AA overbooked their flights too much"
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 35 minutes. No reason given."
Pros: "All I want is clear communication- not strung along. Reasonably comfortable seat - without person next to me too large for seat. Don't gate check my bag then I find plenty of space above my seat. Stop giving people food and drink on short flights as it is unnecessary and it constrains use of the bathroom"
Cons: "The scene of returning bags at the gate of arrival is awkward and other passengers take advantage - blocking walkway etc. please change system and adt a baggage handler to drop bags in a line along one side of the gateway while passengers wait along other side of the gateway"
Pros: "Movies. Safety of flight"
Cons: "Food Too crowed seats no room to breath"
Pros: "Everything was great, but they didn't serve ANY complementary food on a 5 hour flight. What happened to lunch?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Older plane"
Cons: "crew coming in from another flight was late. Then, according to announcement our plane had been sitting 2 hours and they would have to call for power. It was already a late night flight, now delayed 1 1/2 hours leaving. The plane interior was hot, that helped with our displeasure."
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Cons: "The video monitor for my seat was broken. So, low entertainment score."
Pros: "Brand new plane. Every single airline rep was so happy and so pleasant."
Pros: "The gate agents did a good job of making sure the boarding process was organized, despite confusion with two Chicago-bound flights departing from the same gate in a short window. Delay was communicated far enough in advance that I didn't travel to the airport until it was necessary."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours due to the incoming aircraft, but nobody at the gate or onboard offered any explanation or even acknowledged the delay. The aircraft did not handle turbulence well at all... one of roughest flights in recent memory despite avoiding weather. Wifi had weak signal (on a 70-person jet!) and the streaming entertainment did not work the entire time... it either did not load or I got an error message."
Cons: "Boarded small plane too early Air conditioning did not work...sweated whole flight No beverage service seats too small for an adult, and I am only 5'-5""
Pros: "I understand that the breakfast cookies are economical, and many people enjoy them, but can we add some variety or switch things up sometime, pleeeeease. My kids love the cookies. thanks Jesse"
Cons: "The cookies"
Pros: "I had a great experience. Each flight left and arrived at designated times and the staff were very friendly."
Cons: "I have no complaints about any of my flights during my trip."
Pros: "The boarding agent in Jacksonville, FL was a spirited, beautiful woman. She had everyone in the terminal cheer all the soldiers on our flight. And was very helpful to me getting a seat closer to the door as I was having horrible spasms in my back. She is what AMERICAN Airlines should be to all customers. Gate B47 on 9/30."
Pros: "Check in was good."
Cons: "Hate paying for bags. It's silly."
