Delta does a great job. But im now looking for more direct flights in the future. My time is more valuable. I was in the airport/on a plane for 9 hours!
Timely boarding announcements, fairly roomy seating, and prompt snack delivery. Seats in the waiting area could have USB charging ports on both sides. Minor issue; I charged my phone on the flight.
Seats were surprisingly comfortable and sufficiently roomy. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous. Flight departed on time and arrived a little early. My wife and I both agreed this may have been the best flight we've ever had: a direct flight from Kansas City to Atlanta to visit my son and his family. Convenient, relatively inexpensive, and overall a great experience!
Pros: "Helpful and attentive crew"
Pros: "Crew was super amazing and friendly! Very good service also!"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment.."
Pros: "The best other than the fact it was packed full lol but that’s not Deltas fault"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent. Friendly, helpful, kind — great attendants and crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. We never found out why exactly. That was a little tough but staff was great"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient. Flight attendants were helpful and kind and seemed to care."
Cons: "We booked basic seats knowing we might not sit together however we did not know they would separate children. They put my husband and I in an exit row and my daughter at the back of the plane with strangers. I was not comfortable with strangers being responsible for my child. I assumed they would seat children with at least one parent. We did ask to move at the gate and the accommodated us with the last row on the plane. No recline, no window, and right next to the bathrooms. We took it to be with our kid but this policy needs to be revised. Kids should always be seated with the adult responsible for them... who knows what kind of person might end up next to my child. Not to mention if she had needed something is the stranger gonna take care of it? It’s just a bad practice imo."
Pros: "The tv is good addition Comfortable chairs"
Cons: "Menu could have been improved"
Pros: "Seat was okay, and the crew were good. Boarding was quick probably because not many passengers on flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. Flight was quick."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and departing. Wonderful and friendly staff."
Cons: "Honestly, everything was great. Food and entertainment were a little lacking but for a 3 hour flight it was more than acceptable."
Pros: "Korean air is a step above the rest. Best airline in the business"
Cons: "No WiFi on the flight, but there is so much media offered you really forget"
Pros: "Great crew, prompt and courteous despite the short flight"
Cons: "Flight departed an hour past scheduled time due to a snafu with flight attendants: they were either absent or really late or a replacement crew. Unacceptable personnel management."

Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"
Pros: "The crew was light spirited. Took the angst out of the long stressful wait"
Cons: "Punctuality. Flight was 2 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was polite and pleasant unlike the crew from KC to Boston."
Cons: "Telling us to check bags before we get to our seat and find out there is no more room."

Cons: "These planes are tiny. Our equipment was B717."

Cons: "2nd Delta flight on the same day that was delayed. This one only 44 min."
Pros: "Wonderful friendly crew. Comfy seat. Very pleasantly impressed with the comfort on a CRJ900 -- windows are large and closer to eye level, standing room is enough."
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "After boarding the door was closed and the jet way was moved back. 5 minutes later they said they were going to bring the jet way back and open door to let more people on board. They broke 2 FAA regulations by doing this and we were delayed an hour because Deltas computer would not allow this."
Cons: "Never made it because of my originating flight"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and food was good."
Cons: "The airline cancelled the flight alluring weather conditions, when the reality was they did not wanted the plane to park in Kansas. The weather conditions were even worse on the flight I was moved to, and that flight was not cancelled. They absolutely did not care about the passengers"
Cons: "I had a small window for my transfer and Delta gate agents, knowing I was on the way to the gate, closed the gate early now I'm stuck in Detroit for the night at low end economy hotel."

Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that the flight was delayed out of LAX by about 30 minutes due to the flight in-bound being delayed. However, the captain made up most of this time in the air so it ended up being a non-issue."
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."
Pros: "Delta planes are typically nice and clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times."
Pros: "Made the best of a overcrowded messy airport"
Pros: "Horrible seats. Scraped up my knees on a screwhead on the seat in front of me. Way too cramped."
Cons: "Seemed like most everyone is now on Group 1, so boarding was very chaotic and slow."
Pros: "Boarding was delayed, but flight crew & desk staff moved us quickly through & off we went. It was efficient & well managed."
Cons: "A bit cramped on board. Thinking of the discount carriers while smooshed in with my aisle mates."
Cons: "Delays. Ways late."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was superb."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "The service and non stop smooth ride. Boarding was a new experiance taking a bus to the plane. Was quick and crew helpful storing my carryon. Everyone very helpful."
Pros: "The quick flight was nice, the flight attendants were super sweet and kind and were willing to give me extra snacks when I requested for them. No screens on this flight, but understandable since it was such a short flight :)"
Cons: "Flight attendant late arriving to his job causing a 30 minute delay in boarding. Desk staff at airport seemed more interested in their own conversations than helping passengers . Fight attendants seemed uninterested in their jobs and lacked warmth. 45 minutes late arriving in Kansas City no announcements from captain"
Pros: "On Tim and friendly"
Pros: "Flights were on time..."
Cons: "Worst seats ever. Uncomfortable. Didn't recline and were supposed to. Was told by the attendant "that's too bad. It's supposed to" when I mentioned it."
Happy to see coffee was served and the air hostesses were v.attentive. Thanks.
Pros: "Crew was terrific"
Cons: "Cabin was a little cool"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Entertainment center."
Cons: "Very very delayed. Made traveling home difficult on me and my family."
Pros: "Empty flight- every passenger could have had their own row! Excellent piloting through a rough approach on a short landing."
Cons: "The weather upon arrival- uncontrollable. So, nothing else about this flight could have been better."
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Cons: "Nothing. It was what you expect. Comfortable transportation and no crashes."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very cramped and uncomfortable seats in Economy. 2 hours late arriving in KansasCity."
Pros: "Premier access makes a big difference in service!"
Pros: "The seatback entertainment system was working today."
Cons: "They decried it as a pre-screening, which implies it is for everyone (perhaps because of an international flight...?), but when we arrived- they simply scanned our boarding passes without any additional questions."
Pros: "None, Zero..."
Cons: "I did not like how we were treated by the United Airline Crew front desk when we were getting our boarding pass, they immediately say that due to myself having a Philippine Passport and A US Green Card holder they needed to check with Japan Immigration and in the end of waiting they said that we can’t board the plane because of my citizenship status and I needed to get a Japan VISA, I felt discriminated for something I do not know about when I purchased the tickets via online it doesn’t even show if there were any requirements needed in order for me to travel to Japan. My overall Review is a big ZERO and Unsatisfactory of how they treat their customers."
Pros: "The gate agent kept us well informed about our delayed flight - she kept calling to find out status of the flight and reported her findings to us after every call. United provided water and snacks in the gate area as we waited. Gate agent was pleasant and helpful to everyone during the delay."
Cons: "Got a call at 3:00 am saying our flight would be delayed an hour from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. and offered optional flights at no charge. Stayed with original flight since this was a direct flight. The flight ended up being 3 1/2 hours late. We had to wait for a ferried plane from Chicago. Just wondering if United knew at 3:00 am that they had problems, why did it take 13 hours for them to resolve it?"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "getting off the plane was very time consuming despite being already landed. Not entirely sure why but this was the first time getting off a plane took some time. im sure the staff was working hard but I’m unsure why it took some time."
Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "No compensation, no manager available because they were dealing with the same issue at another gate. Where is the customer service?"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Airfare price. Friends were able to get a better deal connecting through Japan."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "My dear was extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable, quick, and great service."
Cons: "No food."
Cons: "Reputation of United makes you expect bad service"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Seats very dirty sticky Not clean at all"
Pros: "The flight crew seemed worn and a bit surly. They ran out of two of the meals and the one I got was oddly seasoned but it was warm. We sat on the ground quite a while while they fixed the PA system with no water then there was a women they'd let on the flight even though she had a different destination - supposedly they spent an hour looking for her bag on the plane. Do you hold up a whole plane load of people that got on the right plane for the woman that didn't and how come when they checked her ticket - no one noticed?"
Pros: "We toured the Boeing plant in Everett (Seatle.) I wish I had bought a T-shirt I saw in the gift shop. It read, "If it ain't Boeing, I ain't going.""
Cons: "Except in the row right behind 1st Class, the seats are kinda crammed (in.) On a commercial on one flight, during the spiel about safety, the movie screen showed about 5 or 6 cabin attendants putting up their trays in prep for landing. Tey all leaned forward as far as they could to reach their trays. I looked around. I could reach my tray with my arms at my sides. If the actual airplane had had it'w seats spaced apart as in the movie, the plane would have been fully loaded with some 35 passengers. I forgot what airline it was, maybe yours?"
Pros: "We made it home alive, so that's the main thing."
Cons: "Three hour delay, which wasn't clearly explained. From others waiting with us, we gathered that flights were delayed fur to some travel plans for POTUS. Does that always happen? I can't imagine it does."
Pros: "That transportation was available in Chicago."
Cons: "No problems."
Cons: "The gate in Newark was a dump and the boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "on schedule even though ORD had some weather issues but yes good flight.."
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time"
Pros: "The free internet and movies"
Cons: "The delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew were polite and helped to assist the passengers who has the same seats."
Cons: "The entertainment on board was limited, shoddy, and frankly disappointing. Why you are asking customers to download the United app instead of providing onboard entertainment like almost every other airline in the world is unknown to me. In comparison with other airlines (particularly airlines in Asia), it was downright egregious. The airlines top people obviously have no interest in providing any comfort for the those who are unwilling to pay the extra money. I do not understand why the airlines believes people should have to pay for their own meal on a 7 hour flight when they've already shelled out the money for the flight. In addition, why should I have to pay an extra $89 for a so-called premium aisle seat? It's completely inexplicable that the state of all airlines in America have fallen to this level."
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good"
Cons: "No comfort at all. Plane was jam packed and I had no leg room, arm rests would not come up, no free wifi or free entertainment."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats with no leg room."
Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"
Pros: "First class it was owsome"
Pros: "Employees need to understand that many people who don't fly often have an anxiety about the whole process. Being friendly and helpful goes a long way in making the experience less of a hassle. United seems to understand this and for the most part their employees were very friendly and helpful. I will choose united whenever possible."
Cons: "TSA employees need to lighten up. I think they can still do their job and be friendly at the same time. They all seem to hate their jobs"
Pros: "Flight delayed for a short time, explanation given- satisfying. Delayed flight info sent via text very helpful. Flight attendants and staff, very attentive, courteous, professional and informational. Over all satisfied with United airlines, thank you for my sucressful trip to Kansas City to celebrate my grandfathers 90th birthday!"
Cons: "Waited at the kiosk at the gate desk, took about 20 minutes for an agent to appear and help with customer service."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 40 minutes because of "paperwork" according to the pilot. We boarded the plane on time however had to sit on it during the delay. We were not informed of what was going on until we had already been waiting for 30 minutes. When they informed us of the delay they offered everyone free direct TV in flight to make up for the delay. Once we finally took off they announced that the direct TV was not actually working. The flight attendant making the announcements was not sincere and rather unprofessional. Luckily the pilot flew fast so we ended up arriving only 10 minutes late."
Cons: "Long boarding and delayed flight, lots of walking"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 4 hours, there was no clarity on what was going on. They made us change aircrafts, the ground staff was mean at best. In spite of the 4 hour wait they didn't even bother serving food or made any announcement to handle passenger anxiety and concerns. Delays are sometimes unavoidable and I have had experiences in the past but none that was handled this unprofessionally"
Pros: "I made it to the airport safe and sound."
Cons: "It was a complete cluster as if no one knew what was going on. Once we were finally able to board we sat on the plane for an additional 30 minutes or so because the air conditioning went out on the plan and we all had to sit there in the scalding heat while they fixed it."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Did not like having my flight pushed back and back and back, to then be cancelled due to "air traffic control". Did not like my flight being rescheduled to 3 days later and that day being 4th of July. Did not like buying another flight for $300 so I could get to where I was going."
Cons: "When I boarded the plane, I noticed crumbs and grease marks on my seat and crackers all over the floor at my feet. Rather than clean my area, the stewardess handed me wet wipes."
Pros: "Crew was professional and everything took place as should"
Cons: "The lack of air conditioning was very uncomfortable. I was sweating a lot the entire trip."
Pros: "Delayed in Denver"
Pros: "I had no issues during my flight. Overall, the trip from Tamuning to Honolulu was quite enjoyable."
Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Didn't have a plane for us. Over 3 1/2 hour delay. Every time I fly this airline there is an issue with the flights."
