Issues with luggage, gate agents and flight. Delta has really gone down hill. But the flight agents int he sky were kind and professional. Also enjoyed the entertainment--but shouldn't be charged for headphones.
The landing was incredibly rough. I thought we were going to roll over at one point. Even coming into the landing was incredibly rocky. The passenger beside me said they make that flight all the time and that was the hardest landing they ever experienced.
The passenger next to me was intoxicated and obnoxious. Seat 6B. He also never wore his mask the entire time.
Cons: "The check in process for Delta was a chaotic mess. There was no one to assist passengers, lines were crazy long. I overheard so many people complaining about missing flights and they could not get any help. I also think the amount Delta charges for luggage was insane."
Pros: "Not one of my good experiences with Delta. Two hours delay in the flight"
Cons: "Information on the flight delay as communication was. at least very poor. Also A 220 was ok but First Class was so so"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Delays Why is it always a surprise for the crew that the plane needs to be de iced in the winter"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "There were a few hiccups with the overall flight process, but the crew was very friendly and informed everyone in a timely manner of the situation. There were also good snacks. Also, flexible baggage policy, which was great."
Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."
Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Tiny seats. No entertainment offered."
Pros: "Got to Houston on time"
Cons: "WiFi that I paid for on Delta didn't work, flight was delayed at take off due to waiting for restroom supplies; lead flight attendant had a major accent and was difficult to understand. She also stated to keep my mother's walker outside the plane when entering the plane"
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Seem that they turned off the air conditioning once we landed in the cabin got on the warm side."
Pros: "The entertainment system was good and they had free text messaging through the plane’s wifi network."
Cons: "The plane stank. I was 3/4 in the back of the plane and there was a strong pee odor."
Cons: "Wifi was not working"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Long delay with vague explanations why."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Old airplane. Everything was worn out and stained. Entertainment system is ancient. Economy seats are so small you can barely get in and out."
Cons: "Old plane, long delay, sketchy WiFi."
Pros: "Excellent hospitality I asked for a cup of coffee at an odd time, the attendant went out of his way to brew fresh pot and served me, instead of just saying "Sorry sir, we don't have any coffee at this time....""
Cons: "There was a mechanical delay and I ended up missing my flight. Even though I arrived 10 minutes prior to departure."
Pros: "wow, got in 3 minutes early, its a short flight, but its no joke trying to get out of ATL on time! Great job!"
Pros: "Friendliness of flight attendants"
Cons: "I wasn't awake long enough to find fault"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The Delta team in Houston was not very pleasant."
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Pros: "The flight is short and easy."
Cons: "I always try to purchase an aisle seat. I feel like there is more room and I don’t feel trapped against a window. This flight a man with very broad shoulders sat in the middle seat. I felt like he should have paid for half my ticket since he sat in half my seat. Thankfully the flight is short. Had it been my second flight I would have been quite upset."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."
Pros: "Quick, efficient, affordable!"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were great, which I expect from a premium carrier like delta."
Cons: "Perfect day outside, not a busy day or time to fly. The email forbhe plane being late was was too last minute. A heads up sooner would have been nice. That way we’re not waiting at the airport."
Cons: "I couldn’t watch a movie and I couldn’t fall asleep because the the person in front of me had a light on."
Cons: "JFK was depressing but not Delta’s problem."
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."
Cons: "Everything was great today."
Pros: "Plane nice and comfortable"
Cons: "Crew allowed passenger to leave bag on floor between seats on emergency exit. This is a safety violation."
Pros: "Could not use the bathroom"
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "Awful experience. Delta left us stranded on the runway for 3 hours. Pathetic airline."
Cons: "Late taking off, and then unable to get to gate on arrival"
Cons: "Delayed and crews attitude. Also being seated next to someone when the plain is half empty"
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Overbooking flights"
Pros: "Every thing except food!"
Cons: "Not enough food provided by airline!"
Less noisy children which cannot be helped…
Pros: "They were nice. They listened"
Cons: "No screaming children"
Pros: "All employees were awesome."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Average crew. The seat became comfortable after complaining that the one I requested was not noted on passenger request or should I say begging for the request."
Cons: "Listen to the passenger."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"
Pros: "Crew was amazing considering we had a delay for a 18 minute flight due to weather. They passed out water etc.. even though they didn't have to"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic"
Cons: "The crew was not friendly. Rude tone."
Cons: "Because of 12 hr between original flight and this flight, we drive"
Cons: "Overall terrible experience, flight attendant was extremely rude when i asked if they were offering sparkiling wine. Flight was delayed due to overbooking on american. Turbulence was horrible the entire flight. The in flight entertainment was unavailable for some reason."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed then we had to spend the night in Dallas."
Cons: "No legroom in 17 E"
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "Delayed on both flights"
Pros: "Once aboard, LATAM is actually quite impressive. The logistical part of the company is horrendous, but the service onboard is exemplar."
Cons: "LATAM changed my itinerary without my authorization and despite my clear verbal directions to NOT change it. The airline took directions from a corrupt official with the Colombian immigration office and cancelled my return flights. I was forced to purchase an additional ticket, travel on and separate flight from my wife and children. I then had to spend several hours waiting to resolve the case in person. The customer service at LATAM is a joke. If I'd received this treatment in the United States, I would have filed a lawsuit for their infringement on my rights and collaboration with the discriminatory practices of the Colombian immigration office in Bogota."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "This was my final connection from a long flight, we did a line to check in and get our boarding passes, when we got to the gate I found out I didn’t have a seat number asigned but husband did, they gave me one there but of course it was not next to my husband, it was the last seat available at the end next to restroom. The smell coming out from the it was so disgusting even before th first person went in, they should do something to improve the cleaness in the restroom between flights. It would probably take them 30 more minutes to do so, and I would not mind waiting for it even if this was my final flight after 15+ hours."
Pros: "Ease of travel. Seamless boarding process."
Cons: "I STILL HAVE NOT LEFT RIC!!!!"
Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"
Pros: "Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "We did not appreciate the game of needing to pay for seat selection after having already paid for tickets. We were not provided with TSA-PRE despite providing our known traveler numbers in advance. Boarding selection protocol seemed opaque, complex, and geared towards inviting us to pay extra for priority boarding. Before boarding the plane, we were not able to find out whether any food would be served and the extent of what might be provided. After getting on board, we were offered the chance to buy food. The complementary food was a cookie and a few ounces of soda or juice. Movies were available, but not headphones for listening to them. Leg space under the seat in front of us was reduced to make room for life vests."
Pros: "Bad bad"
Cons: "Bad bad"
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "Delayed, old aircraft, no food, no entertainment"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and my luggage is coming in the later flight. I need some form of consolation for this pathetic service."
Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. No food offered."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "It was a small plane so I didn't expect much. The attendants were a little disconnected for it being a three hour flight."
Cons: "When the flight was on time, we learned it was overbooked. Agents stated that if people would not willingly accept their offer to fly at a later time random people would be denied boarding. This was a stressful element as there was no other flight that could make me arrive on time. Plus, threatening to deny boarding to paying customers for airline related overbooking does not seem like a fair or good business practice. Then there were mechanical issue with the plane. After waiting over an hour for repairs they realized they needed a new air craft. This further delayed the flight. Not only was the flight extremely delayed at this pint but throughout the waiting time we were given very little information and were constantly told they couldn't give us an approximate time of departure. This was extremely rude and makes the experience of dealing with a delay even worse. I would suggest giving us more information about what is happening. Saying we don't know when the flight will leave is just unacceptable. To make matters even worse after we were finally boarded we had to wait an additional 40 minutes sitting inside the plane while they boarded refreshments! I know there are delays in flights but this same thing happened to my flight on my way to Paris and it caused me to miss my international connection and had to be re-routed."
Pros: "Poor service They had a severely overweight person sitting next to me. She was struggling putting on her seat belt for a few minutes. I was very uncomfortable in my seat. The flight attendant was walking around withh seat belt extenders ; why are you accommodating severely overweight customers at the expense of others?"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Cabin was cold and no blankets available."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"
Pros: "Everything, it was my first time flying and I actually really enjoyed it! I'd be looking Forward to flying with this airline again!"
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Cons: "This is a tiny plane and without warning they wouldn't let me carry on my carry on bag which would have fit just fine...it fit in their luggage test."
Cons: "The people were rude and made us stay on the plane an hour and a half after we landed."
Pros: "Other passengers trying to make light of hectic situation."
Cons: "Delayed because crew was not able to get to the gate in time. Once they arrived they got things moving but passengers were already flustered and the airline stewards also seemed flustered, their attempts and multiple announcements to move people faster did not help and actually made things move slower..."
Pros: "Love PTO, always efficient."
Pros: "I was in group 2"
Pros: "The hostess was friendly and helpful. She made the trip pleasant."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport early, as suggested. The plane was over an hour late in arriving. Then it was announced that there was a maintenance problem and that there would be further delay. An hour later they were still waiting for maintenance to arrive. (I know that Greensboro airport is not O'hare, but it is not Dogpatch,either!) A large airline like AA should adequate personnel. After about two hours they arrived and the word given to us was that it would take about 30 minutes to resolve the problem. Finally, at 5:00 pm the 1:30 pm. flight was cancelled. They put us on a flight leaving 9:25 am the next day, and we were on our own until then. That flight left on time, and my comment about the hostess was, of course about that flight. I will consider all of the other options available before risking flying AA again."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats rude crew"
Pros: "I arrived at the airport and the guy wouldn't let me board my flight so I lost my money. Im a new person that just started flying. I did like this Carrier but as of yesterday I'd rather use Delta for now on. So im still at home and didnt get a chance to make it to work."
Delayed with no good reasoning as to why except poor miscommunication and I’ll preparedness
No catering available for a two hours long flight. Neighbor’s mask kept slipping off and no crew said anything.
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Pros: "Pilot had technical expertise and landed well. Crew was polite to passengers on red eye by keeping it quiet and dim."
Pros: "Crew was super helpful and patient as the flight was delayed by more than 3 hours. Captain kept everyone up to date with whatever was going on."
Cons: "Flight delay impacted a lot of other travel plans. No compensation for long delays"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "Legroom was minimal."
Cons: "Mechanical delay on this leg left us in a hot plane on a hot Texas tarmac. We were initially told it would take 15-20 minutes but this incrementally grew to 1-1/2 hours. Even when we were told that we were pushing away from the gate, we didn't move for another 15 minutes. At least tell the truth. Only water offered. Observed flight attendant moving cups along baggage bins.... Don't know if these were the ones he then served water in."
Pros: "Corralled group lines allowed people to get in line when I was ready versus open entrance for each group"
Cons: "Plane arrived late to gate making my flight arrive in Austin an hour later. I have an ride home, too."
Pros: "It was a nightmare. They changed gate numbers with no notification so I was at the wrong gate. Then they left 20 mins early which they aren’t suppose to do. Was stuck at the airport all day waiting for another flight to open."
Cons: "Got so good exercise from walking all over Newark airport."
Pros: "Nice trip!"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight and they were at the opposite ends of airport so had to run to catch this flight!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed.. Rude customers"
Cons: "I didn't like how they switched my seat and stuck me in the middle of to stinky people"
Cons: "Bought these tickets almost a year in advance. Never given the option to select seats. Both my husband and I were stuck in the middle seats or not together on each leg of our flight. Food was horrible on every leg. Husbands tv did not work. I am petite and seats too small even for me. never again will o give this airline my money."
Cons: "Seats were small with not much leg room"
Cons: "Late flight. Plane 1 hour and 37 minutes late because arriving plane was late, then the arriving plane was slow to de-plane, then spent the next hour waiting on "paperwork" to approve takeoff. Very dissatisfied."
Cons: "United has new seats that have absolutely no leg room and are very uncomfortable. I will make sure never to fly United again. This was 3 hours of agony."
Pros: "Groups should board front to back so people aren't squeezing by each other to get to their seats."
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Pros: "The in-flight crew were very nice and no one got beat up. our flight was delayed but we got put on a later flight without issue."
Cons: "No entertainment and no free wifi and the seats hurt my beck and back. The girl who checked us in was abrasive to us and everyone in front of us in line, but maybe she wasn't trying to be, that was just her personality. Our flight got delayed which meant we missed out on seeing an old friend I hadn't seen in years, but at least we got there."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "No complaints. Short flight."
Pros: "Attendant was nice."
Cons: "Unexpected, unannounced delay put us into Chicago 30 minutes late. I was scheduled to have a 45 minute layover, now down to 15. I was given no support getting to my next gate, that plane was not held despite the fact that I ran across the terminal to catch it."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "My mom is disabled and was flying alone. United was amazing. As soon as I pulled near the curb someone was there with a wheelchair. I parked the car and he waited for me. He already checked her in dropped her bag off and was waiting for me. He said that he was going to take my mom through security and bring her all the way to the gate. I was so relieved because I was not able to travel with her but felt she was in good hands."
Pros: "Seats were spacious, food and service were great."
Cons: "Seats didn't lift my legs when reclining."
Pros: "They double booked my seat and forced me to sit in an emergency exit row. Pretty sure this is against FAA regulation."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was non stop to Denver."
Cons: "I did not like waiting on the plane for over an hour while the plane waited to get fuel."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Limited food & beverage choices."
Pros: "Nice people working."
Cons: "The weather! And air traffic control!!"
Pros: "It was quiet, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Well off the start the air on the aisle seat is horrible, the controls are set underneath the window seat so if you had window or middle you had the perfect seat for air. my seat wasnt working, the seat was finicky and would recline, also the TV controls are in a bad spot but that i really didnt care about. The absolute worst was my tray was broken on the right side so it couldnt hold the weight of my drink or anything so i was forced to hold my drink food etc. I had to prop my leg under the tray so it could hold my laptop so i can finish my work which i didnt get to finish because it was to uncomfortable for my leg. Needless to say ive never had a bad experience flying and i used to say that all the time but i guess i just jinxed myself because that was bad. All it was missing was a crying baby."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Pros: "UA did a good job, but Houston International was closed off/on due to bad weather, so it was a mess."
Pros: "Easy enough"
Cons: "should have happened yesterday."
Pros: "Everyone was great. A young lady on my Houston to Austin flight helped me find my seat. A young man on my NY to Houston flight was very friendly!!!"
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding was pretty efficient"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks on the flight from Austin to Los Angelss. Entertainment was non existent unless you paid for wifi, even then you can't stream videos and no TVs at all"
Pros: "I have time to get a shoe sine and do some shopping a the airport. Check out 2 bars."
Cons: "I gat home at 12 20. I was hoping to get home at 7 :30. And I spend 200 but I was happy to get home safe. Thank you all"
Cons: "See previous comment"
Pros: "I slept the whole way and wasn't disturbed"
Pros: "2 of the flight attendants were really nice. I had an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "They board us on the plane only to have us wait for an hour for our pilot. That's terrible business to have that many paying people to wait for anything, especially a ride before midnight. I asked a flight attendant if she could let me watch the tv in front of me for free considering the inconvenience. She responded in a very matter of fact tone explaining my inconvenience was not a very big deal and actually lied about the landing time to make my claims sound less worthy. I feel like jet blue, virgin and southwest are the only airlines that still care about the customer and their experience and not just how to squeeze more money out of them."
Cons: "Security was worst I have ever seen - needed well over recommended 90 mins. No entertainment and ran out of food. Extra charge for regular economy seats. Reminded why I don't choose United."
Cons: "First, my original DIRECT flight was cancelled bc of weather. I was switched to a flight w a connection no joke less than an hour later. Why not just postpone original flight? Then, I had a middle seat. I was in between two extremely overweight people that had no business buying only one ticket. It was clear that there was no room for three people and no one checked in or tried to accommodate. Trying to go to the bathroom was a huge ordeal bc the person next to me was barely mobile. If there was an emergency , it would have been a hazard. When I was able to go to the bathroom (after ten minutes of maneuvering ) flight attendants seemed annoyed when people were in the lane. While this is understandable, it was not possible for me to quickly scoot back into my seat. Overall , this was a terrible experience. Entertainment was lacking. It took about 30 minutes to get any beverages after being requested."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Got in later then needed."
Cons: "Seats were too hard"
Pros: "Had the whole row to myself! Got to relax and lay down the whole flight."
Cons: "Wifi cost $7; only worked 15 min."
Cons: "no food and no entertainment"
