Pros: "Same as the first flight. Korean flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. Foods ok. We couldn’t afford first or prestige class so we have to trade in our comfort in economy."
Cons: "Flight wasn’t as long but if you add up the lay over time, it end up being long."
Pros: "Everything, from boarding to departure, the service is excellent! The staff was attentive and very welcoming. Spending a few hours reminded me why I fell in love with SK in the first place."

Cons: "The 747-400 flight had some metal box mounted on the floor under the seat in front of me. I have a bad left hip and was in pain the whole flight because all I could do is keep my left leg in one position. If these boxes are necessary then get those seats more space so it will not be a problem. Put new Monitor screens into the seats."
Pros: "Staff was very warm and accommodating. Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Just the more than one hour departure delay. Reason given was that they were still waiting for passengers on a connect connecting flight. Then what was unusual was a manual head count of passengers which was out of the ordinary in this high tech world of modern air transportation"

Cons: "It was a bit warm on the entire flight and as many other customers have mentioned, the seats were a tad uncomfortable; albeit nothing out of the normal for economy class."
Pros: "Bibimbap not available. Crew checked in our carry-on despite having space above our seats (Carry-on was not checked in during Chicago to Seoul trip). Unresponsive entertainment system. If this was only a ICN - MNL flight this is overpriced since it feels like a budget airline."
Pros: "Food was pretty good too. Great service for the price!!!"

Anyone tell ne"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed and we were accommodated by being put up in a great hotel in Seoul."
Cons: "Did not like that we reached our destination in Vietnam half a day late, since we had a wedding to attend. The vegetarian/vegan meal option was very bland. The hostesses I felt were a bit sexist, perhaps due to being Korean. I asked for a glass of wine for myself and a whiskey on the rocks for my boyfriend. He was served a hefty glass 1st, and I was given my drink 2nd, which was a very small pour. I asked for more wine and was given only a tiny bit more."
Pros: "Flight was full but still comfortable."

Pros: "perfect service"

Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Services, and the large comfortable plane."
Cons: "Long flight"

Pros: "Good food. Good movies. Plenty of room."
Cons: "Long flight, nothing you guys can do."
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."
Pros: "Professional crew, Good service , comfortable seating, fine entertainment."
Cons: "First time traveling abroad, it was a unique experience and a learning one."
Pros: "The plane was brand new!"
Cons: "Every time my husband and I fly our seats get changed from our original picks. I make sure the tickets are linked and they still move us. Very irritating not sitting together especially when you take the time to ensure it doesn't happen."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was extremely rude. They did not come to collect trash and so all passengers were left holding their coffee/ tea: beverages during bumpy landing."
Cons: "Attendants were rude. I didnt understand why. Also, I purchased a window seat but there was no window in my row. I spent the majority of the flight feeling ill."
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should be assigned when we checked in. They weren't for the second leg. But, the seats are fine."
Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Well, if our plane had been leaving on time it would've been superb."
Pros: "The gate agent in Medford for delta was awesome"
Pros: "The crew was great and the service was quick and very nice."
Cons: "It sounds weird but I didn’t know which window was mine so I had one shut and the one in front of me shut during the flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"
Pros: "free movies on the flight"
Cons: "The check-in process at SFO airport was poorly managed."
Cons: "Never made it because of my originating flight"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "N/A. No food was served due to turbulence which is uncontrollable."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and fast."
Cons: "Didn't love that my 1st flight got off at gate G. And connecting flight was at gate C on the other end of the airport."
Pros: "Decent drinks and food. Attentive crew"
Cons: "The lady who sat beside me kept asking questions"
Cons: "The sits are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."
Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."
Cons: "The comfortability and that’s rear even if I had the middle seat. I had it on my way towards Alaska and didn’t have any issue"
Pros: "Seat comfort and crew. Atlanta customs was much more efficient in processing people."
Pros: "excellant movies"
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Original flight delayed by more than 2 hours. Rescheduled and got to Bos with a layover"
Cons: "Delta rescheduled me automatically and I woudl not have found out if I did not call their re-booking center."
Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Pros: "Gluten free snacks, hooray!"
Cons: "The customer service and the strict nonsense rules"
Pros: "Loved having the Movie and tv options on the flight, really passed the time"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, seat assignment at gate, was very anxiety provoking. I was concerned would not get on flight."
Pros: "Service was great. Regular drinks and snacks."
Cons: "Got in over an hour late. 140am"
Pros: "I love Delta, especially their newer planes that have screens in the backs of headrests and free movies."
Cons: "Leg room is never enough. I'm 6'1"."
Pros: "Not much . The boarding process took forever and the lines through TSA took longer .. no direction to lines and I was standing for 10 min before saying something to someone and they said o there’s another line."
Cons: "Almost everything besides the staff on the plane"
Pros: "After being redirected and behind on travel plans due to weather and missed flights this was a welcomed relief. Everything went as planned and staff was very helpful."
Pros: "First time with AmExp Delta so no baggage fee, zone 1 boarding. seats are fine, newer aircraft, snacks were good and entertainment was good and easy to use. Staff and attendants were friendly p. All good"
Cons: "As far as flying goes today no complaints. As compared to 30 years ago I could do a book but nothing to do with Delta"
Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"
Pros: "Smooth and on time boarding,early arrival, comfortable flight."
Pros: "It's Delta so I got miles"
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in. Look for a flight with first class or a bigger plane, they have them"
Pros: "Gate agents were very helpful and kind"
Cons: "The flight was late. Not a lot of communication as to why."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The economy plus wasn't nearly as nice as any other airlines. It gave the least amount of extra leg room and the only other amenity they gave was a toothbrush. Even United economy plus is bigger. Plus if you want to change anything you have to pay include just to try and go stand by on an earlier flight."
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."
Cons: "Delta could do a little more to align people behind the right zone pillars when lining up for boarding. Passengers especially those not used to flying or flying with Delta are always confused. Maybe some stripping on the floor could help or pillars at the front and midway back."
Pros: "Snacks were readily available; gate and flight attendants were friendly and accomodating."
Cons: "Free in-flight entertainment required an app to play, need for which was not advertised at all. Flight on United earlier in the month included announcements to download their app before takeoff. Customer service ahead of flight was a mixed bag. One assistant was went out of her way to help quickly and then comped a fee after I waited ~30 mins and then explained why we'd need assistance at the gate that she could not provide. A previous assistant was not able to provide this explanation."
Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."
Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"
Pros: "Free first checked bag, comfy seats"
Cons: "Would have liked more movie selection"
Pros: "Nothing about it was good. They made us Americans feel so unwanted."
Cons: "The staff was rude"
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants. The plane was full but the attendants were excellent."
Pros: "Staff hospitality"
Cons: "Deboarding delay, seems typical"
Cons: "had to check my carryon which got WET sitting outside to be loaded on the plane. It was a cloth bag."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Pros: "Free movies, lots of leg room, interesting for purchase food items."
Cons: "Food item selection limited - they only had snack boxes. The options looked interesting, but didn't quite taste as good as they sounded."
