Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Snacks need some variety"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."
Cons: "Food offered in first"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Pros: "I liked the crew."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate the women at the boarding counter. She had a very bad attitude and was not approachable."
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."

Pros: "The crew were great. A little too warm on the plane at the back of the plane and too cold at the front."
Cons: "Since this was the first leg of two, the person who checked us in did not check our bags to the final destination. Then, when we went to go to check in for our second leg, they wanted to charge for our baggage again. Not cool Delta."
Pros: "Amazing SLC Skyclub crew"
Cons: "The airport."
Pros: "Sat in the Key West airport for five hours because of delays. Somehow the other airlines managed to get their people on and off the island. Although they say they can’t land in a 25 mph crosswind we were watching the weather. It mostly stayed below 20 mph for hours before departure"
Cons: "Delays due to Democrats not making deal"
Cons: "The person next to me"
Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Cons: "My flight was two hours late."
Pros: "On time. Great service. Good breakfasr"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."

Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket and did not inform me. Horrible exlefywith JustFly.com Beware of this organization"
Pros: "In a pinch they were able t"
Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."
Pros: "Movie selection was great!"
Pros: "Delta agents rerouted me in face of weather problems in Southeast so as to allow me to make my LAX to Sydney flight. Well done."

Pros: "It was smooth sailing all the way"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me thinking my space was his space too"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Like everyone says - could use more leg room. Theres no way to stretch legs which is a problem on ling flights. Why not lift up the seats by a few inches? This would create more leg room underneath without changing the number of seats and doesnt impact the head room much."
Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"
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."

Pros: "The crew was very competent and friendly."
Cons: "Insufficient seating area, no meal offered."

Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Plane hot initially and couldn't be cooled down until airborne."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff were excellent"
Cons: "I hate the CRJ configuration- no business class and coach seats are far too close together, worse than many Asian airbus configurations."
Cons: "I felt singled out by the gate agents for this leg of the flight. The gate agent called me out twice - once just to check if my carry on fit into the sample size container. Then she did it again when we were boarding. I know she knew she'd already asked me before. Because afterwards, she tried to play it off, laughing and saying "I'd already asked you, didn't it". My carry on fit with ease. There were people with larger suitcases all around me but she continuously singled me out."
Pros: "On time departure and slightly early arrival"
Cons: "Airline food is just so inadequate in every way."
Pros: "As expecred."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process."
Cons: "Seat(19c) is in a position that due to its design causes it to be bumped into continously throughout the flight... I lost track of the amount of times I got jostled by passengers and crew. May want to rethink the use of that seat. They ran out of food. Had to wait over 30 min on the tarmac before being able to deplane."
Pros: "The seats could have been a bit roomier."
Pros: "Business class lay flat seats allow sleep. Staff tries to pamper you with good service. Smooth long flight 10hrs40min and flight left 30 min late and still arrived early 40 min."
Cons: "Online checkin requires passport check at airport so you try but cannot print boarding pass. Online would not let me order gluten free vegetarian meal for daughter, but staff at terminal said oh it is too late now, you need 24 hrs notice... on flight though they figured it out and brought her foods she could eat so it worked out ok."
Pros: "FYI this was actually an American Airlines flight (AA 104) not BA. Anyway I love those 777-300ER’s, they are huge with great up to date ambient lighting, excellent, outstanding entertainment , and I had the whole row to myself. I often take this flight when flying home from LHR to JFK. 5 stars!"
Cons: "5 stars all around"
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "seat was not comfortable as it was economy. staff was decent."

Cons: "Boarding was messy"
Cons: "I somehow made my 35 minute layover, however I can’t say the same for my luggage. Totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Typical BA efficiency."
Cons: "What’s the difference between BA and EasyJet?"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Typical solid British Airways service."
Cons: "Delayd by 4 hours."
Pros: "Crew excellent as always on BA, boarding fine, usual hassle getting to seats with other passengers blocking aisle,but when you choose to sit at the rear and the plane loads the forward seats first it's to be expected. Seats were very comfortable (much better than Virgin Airbus 330) and plenty of legroom. Food was better than on previous flights and drinks service was good - shame they ran out of wine, Bacardi and gin towards the end of the flight though! Liked the automated bag drop at Gatwick, much quicker and plenary of staff in case there were any issues."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment poor. Not enough choice, screens have seen better days too. Virgin do this aspect much better."
Pros: "The service and the entire crew were outstanding"
Cons: "I cannot even begin..."
Pros: "I slept. Pillow, blanket, clean disposable headrest cover Food was decent Way above average crew."
Cons: "Long boarding process. Broken headphone jack."

Cons: "We were a little late."
Pros: "Everything it was painless"
Pros: "Couldn’t check my bag through to another BA flight"
Pros: "Flight boarded quickly"
Cons: "Gate agents insisted I needed to check my bag even though I specifically brought a carryon to put under my seat should the overhead bins become full. I have worked for the airline industry for 14 years , I know how this works , and I know carry ons fit under the seat in front of me of an Airbus A319."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Smaller plane required seat belt extender for heavier person."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. They had no confirmation of the booking even though it had been done a month earlier. Called the customer service and they kept directing me to go figure things out with the airport staff. It was a very frustrating experience. Took almost 4 hrs to confirm that the flight had been paid for."
Pros: "Crew were nice and helpful"
Pros: "I thought the staff were helpful and professional. I had enough legroom and there was room for my wedding dress to be hung, although it was slightly small."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence but I know this is not the fault of the airline. Additionally, the in-flight entertainment was not working properly and this had to be reset on request. There were no wet towels/wipes to wipe our hands."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The service was bad"
Pros: "Liked the food and drink service, as well as the on flight entertainment, movies, games, language game."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and attentive"
Cons: "It’s an older plane. Video screens are pixelated. Seats are cramped and I’m only 5’3. Boarding process was a mess. They used 15-20 minutes calling the first class and premiere class passengers. Then announce everyone else can board in 20 minutes. I ordered a lactose free meal and got curry with caramel cream, butter, milk stick for coffee and bread. Snack was a snack sized kit kat bar."
Cons: "No gluten free snacks."
Cons: "Snacks were good!"
Pros: "Quality service."
Cons: "Vegetarian dinner of pasta was uninteresting. The Indian meal in the other direction was much better."
Pros: "An air steward called Frank was super cheerful and helpful. Really set a good note to the flight."

Pros: "Saff are pleasant, helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late, plane was 15+ years old BA now charge premium prices for budget airlines service (no inclusive baggage, complimentary tea/snack)."
Pros: "The only good thing was that the flight departed on time. On arrival we had to go into a holding pattern, then once on the ground, there was a glitch and we were held on the place for about 30 minutes. We did make our next flight, however, but some people missed theirs."
Cons: "No food was offered -- except to buy -- even though it was breakfast-time. This was a very disappointing flight!"

Cons: "entertainment was not functioning through out the flight."
Pros: "Flight crew were great"
Cons: "No room in the seats. I'm not heavy and was almost unable to move."
Pros: "Easy as pie!"
Cons: "When we arrived at gate, I went to ask the woman at the desk if this was the correct location for our flight. She mumbled "we haven't started boarding yet" and dismissed my question. rudely. She was harried, and continued to act that way when the boarding process started."
Pros: "Comfortable. Great flight attendants"
Cons: "The plane takeoff time was delayed by almost two hours. When we got to Oakland, waiting for the luggage took an exceptionally long time. Don't understand why we couldn't sit in the waiting room until a "certain time" before getting on the plane, we had to wait outside in a hall with no seats. The room was not being used by anyone else."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete mess. Boarded higher paying passengers first...then everyone else all at once instead of boarding from the rear of the plane forward. Took forever to board."

Cons: "Economy seating. Quite cramped.. I would make sure to book at least Premium Economy in the future."

Pros: "Head rest broken, actually hanging off on 2 threads so it hung down below my shoulder blades, more like a back massager"
Cons: "No entertainment, tv didn't even show flight details. Hideously uncomfortable seat with broken head rest. Staff ate their meals in front of the paying customers."
Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."

Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Convenience to return to Heathrow with enough time to navigate customs and security and make my connection. Fare price was good"

Cons: "Not gotten cancelled on August 18 and delayed for 24 hours with no compensation for hotel we had to get. Then would be nice to not get delayed 4 times on today’s flight arriving home at 2 in the morning on a day we HAVE to go to work because we already are in trouble for missing previous day."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was cancelled and we missed our friends 70th birthday celebration."
Cons: "Staff at the ticket counter were curt, rude, and patronizing. They were ill equipped to deal with the situation."

Cons: "They should of reimbursed me for my seat that they took"

Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "on time flight, crew member courtesy"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."

Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour weather delay."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "Limited leg room for such a long flight. The person in front of my husband reclined their seat and he could barely move for the 8 hour flight.

Pros: "food, alcohol very good, pleasant flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."
Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."
Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Pros: "I like the fact that you could watch movies to make the time go by more quickly"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. The isles are narrow and every time the gentleman across the isle got up to stretch his backside was in my face. The crew would come down the isle with the cart and about take my arm off."
Cons: "Lateness, seat comfort and gate checking a duffel bag"
Pros: "AA people are better to talk to and are trying to locate bags but still not successful"
Cons: "Whole experience is nerve racking"

Pros: "Good Crew"
Cons: "Flights are chronically late - over 1 hour coming and going."
Cons: "First, the original 90 minute layover became 8 hours with the old buy this scheduled ticket and 3 weeks later we will switch it to 7 hours. After a 8 hour red-eye, it was brutal. BA was an hour late taking off from London to Warsaw. The onboard experience was charge for everything. No sodas, water, nuts, etc. Oh and boarding, cmon. The gold, silver and special people go first. I think that was 5 people. The other 150 plus, you are on your own, go. You have your typical isle 5 person holding up the entire loading procedure, trying to get their oversized bag in the overhead, versus loading from the back. Wow."
Cons: "multiple delays from American airline in Madrid and Chicago, not giving me good alternative, not owning the issue"
Pros: "I was traveling with my granddaughter who is a toddler. Just imagine waiting an extra 2 hours for the flight to depart."

Pros: "Delays caused a little stress but all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Late arrival to DCA."
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag. Brought only a carry on to avoid baggage claim, but was forced to check it anyway. There is NO organization to the boarding process, so in the free-for-all at boarding, people in any boarding group are let through with WAY MORE than 1 carry on and 1 personal item, leaving no room for my bag and I was in group 2 (not sure how many groups there are). Horrible disorganization at boarding. Board from back to front for goodness sake...its common sense."
