A to Z on this flight was just great!

Read more about Singapore Airlines

A to Z on this flight was just great!

Pros: "Clean cabin and good service"
Cons: "Not every body is doing extra miles to make customer happy"
Pros: "The crew was great although I needed to ask them for my meal cause they passed by me. They thought I had my meal already which I didn’t. I don’t think they did it on purpose so it was just misunderstanding. My flight was on SQ 38 from Singapore to LAX on October 30 2019 Other than that. All is amazing. I will still highly recommend Singapore Airlines to other people."
Cons: "I think I have nothing in mind about improvements because I can see they have been training very well. I would like to say keep up the good work"
Cons: "The person next to me had a distinct body odor."
Cons: "The seat covers looked worn and dirty. Needs an upgrade."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft have very upright seats. Not very comfy"
Pros: "Superb service."
Cons: "Meals were average for airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Generally good Flight was operated by Silk Air"
Cons: "Entertainment score is not meaningful because of the short flight time."
Pros: "Well organized boarding, friendliness of staff, food service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about an hour."
Pros: "Couldn't find a problem"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Staff are great and on board service was good. Boarding is always well organised from Changi however it was a full flight and as always half the passengers exceeded their carry on allowance. Rather than addressing this bags were flung everywhere no nowhere within your actual reach during the flight. Very annoying when you are a passenger who does the right thing."
Cons: "See above. No in flight entertainment makes you feel like you're flying with the low cost carrier rather than a full service airline."
Pros: "Prompt boarding, friendly service, decent food, plentiful entertainment. Singapore Airlines was a great choice for my flight from Texas to England."
Pros: "My neighbor"
Cons: "Fight war delayed and we got a security check upon arrival"
Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, attentive and joyful!"
Cons: "Sitting in a middle seat. Was told at the jetway counter no aisle or window seats were available. I saw no fewer than 5 empty aisle seats in my area."
Pros: "Seats in economy were larger than United. Food was good for airplane food, even found a last minute vegetarian meal not ordered ahead. Appreciated a gratis glass of wine. Found a clean pillow and blanket in every seat upon boarding."
Cons: "My screen had to be reset twice as it froze up. The attendants kept taking my water cups despite them not being empty. Boarding was less than organized, could have been more efficient. We made up time, arriving a few minutes early even after departing late."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Cons: "SQ860 flight on 4th April morning delayed and greatly affected my today trip scheduled."
Pros: "The cabin crew was great."
Cons: "1. Flight seats are too congested on flight.. 2. Not too many indian movie choices 3. Some reason, while booking the flight, the KAYAK site had not asked for food choice. And the airline does not carry any extra vegetarian food. This had caused some inconvenience."
Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."
Pros: "I'm starting to sound like a fan boy but Singapore airlines masks this look easy. Comfortable seat great entertainment, edible food and wonderful in for service team. What's not to like"
Cons: "Had to drive to Huston. Can we get rid of BA and American and just have Singapore handle the flights at DFW?"
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest but it was adequate considering shirt trip"
Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "Menu is average but get they need to cater for wide variety of tastes"
Pros: "New plane. Good entertainment. Seat reclined a lot but would not stay reclined."
Cons: "The food was horrendous. Worst airline food I've ever had. Check in and boarding area not great. Very overrated airline."
Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"
Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Bit on the cold side."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and arrival"
Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system is outdated, food not good and they went out of the good stuff (e.g. only seafood noodles for breakfast?!)"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "Cramp set space. Lack of movie choices, not all had closed caption."
Pros: "evening meal was delicious"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible, and not properly heated, risky food handling not acceptable."
Pros: "Staff was the best, always smiling and going beyond expectations to assure you enjoy your flight and I certainly did. Take off was a breeze. Landing a little bumpy but nothing to cry about. I will fly Singapore whenever possible from now on."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."
Pros: "We did not die in a hellacious ball of flame Aviation incident!"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating (required for bassinet) Row 41, my seat was practically in the aisle. No where to put my feet without getting trodden on by everyone! Broken entertainment screen, would not stay upright, due to several hundred thousand past passengers bashing into it after having first trodden on the unfortunate passengers feet! Crew unresponsive with drink and food requests, I had to ask for services multiple times on several occasions. Pressing my 'attendant button' my light was lit for 10 minutes before a crew member noticed. My first trip on Singapore, my expectations were not met. Shame"
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Seats seemed roomier in economy than other airlines. Lots on movie choices."
Cons: "I didn't care much for the meals, but my husband loved them."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "spicy chicken too spicy!"
Pros: "The crew Were so attentive. And Also not untrusive. If i was asleep they left me and offered me food and drink when i woke. Excellent airline."
Pros: "everything, excellent job"
Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "Excellent crew, efficient processes and overall relaxing"
Cons: "Old business class hard product. Seats can't be adjusted much and the bed is too short due to small head- and footwell."
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful. I got plenty of meals and they easily accommodated my vegetarian diet!"
Pros: "The plane cabin, the ease of seat selection, friendly helpful cabin crew, quality and choice of food, facilities in the toilets (mouth wash, hand cream, etc), choice of entertainment, early arrival, the price."
Cons: "That I could not afford to travel first class! which must have been marvellous when economy so good."
Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"

Unboarding took an hour after landing. That is not reasonable.

Pros: "Nothing stood out."
Cons: "I found the ground staff and flight attendants to be REALLY passive aggressive. I have been making this trip regularly and had not flown Jet Blue in a while, I thought I would give it a try… Not again, I’m going back to Delta who just seem a more friendly crew who go out their way to thank the customers and are grateful for a person choosing their airline."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The amability of the crew. The TV system. The snacks"
Cons: "The boarding. I have some problems to find space to put my carry on, cause many personal ítems was in that places"
Pros: "Every one was super friendly and flight was punctual"
Pros: "The crew and pilot were awesome! Very friendly! Nodding was pretty quick."
Cons: "It was an older plane. WiFi Didn’t work. But not a huge deal. It would be nice if they ask you to check at the gate due to overhead space if they could have those bags come out first from the baggage claim."
Pros: "I love JetBlue! Roomy, well-appointed, great amenities and clean."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight left three hours late, had mechanical/electrical issues before and during the flight. The flight attendants were rude TVs worked sporadically because of power issues"

Pros: "Crew and seat were good."
Cons: "TV was broken."

Pros: "Comfortable,spacious seats. Direct TV. The flight attendants were efficient and polite."
Cons: "Everything was fine. No complaints."
Pros: "The flight crew said that we would be getting a voucher to make up for the faulty video. The pilot warned us that there would be a lot of turbulence throughout the trip due to the weather."
Cons: "They weren't able to get the movie/ etc. to work, though they did try. Also the ride was very bumpy Also the flight was over an hour late in arriving and the flight did not appear on the screens at West Palm Beach, so my husband who was waiting for me, was very worried. It never did show our arrival even after we arrived."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "Not much food options available. The tv was not working. The audio was off as well. The seat should recline a little more."
Cons: "Todo"
Pros: "Friendly staff and a smooth takeoff and landing. All I could ask for. This was the 1st time that I flew JetBlue and I was impressed."
Cons: "The middle seat but that was probably my fault."
Pros: "Seating, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "There was enough leg room for a big guy like me so that was nice."
Cons: "The pilot was late arriving so we had to wait for him to show up then because we were late our flight got delayed again because of a lightning storm near the airport. Other planes who were scheduled to leave after us got to leave earlier than us so I don't know what happened there. After I was finally on the plane my headphone jack would not work. I know it's not my headphones because I had just used it before boarding for both my Nintendo and computer. Also, the buttons for the TV are on the armrest and if you try to get comfortable you'll change the channel. When the flight attendant came around she just propped a bunch of stuff in front of us and since it was dark I had no idea what I was looking at, ended up getting a very crappy bag of chips. Overall was a terrible experience flying JetBlue."
Pros: "Seats had lots of leg room and individual TV screens. Choice of movies was limited on our return flight from Boston to Sacramento but more varied on the leg from LAX to Charlotte. Our flights from Charlotte to Boston and Boston to SMF were both delayed due to weather (no fault of the airlines) but the pilots were able to make up time in the air. I was also notified of the flight delays both by Kayak and the airlines. Kudos to them!"
Cons: "The airlines changed planes at the last minute on our outgoing flight from LAX to Charlotte so we didn't get the exit row seats we had chosen. Support dogs are allowed in the cabin and I had to change seats due to allergies. Two dogs were in adjacent rows on our flight from Boston to Sac, which required a bit of seat shuffling to separate them."
Pros: "Much better legroom , leather seats. Much faster, more orderly boarding. (the plane wasn't ready until 10 minutes before departure- Jet Blue got everyone on in 10 minutes for an ontime departure) You get beverages as needed instead of a 4 oz ration. Selection of snacks instead of 3 pretzels. Crews were friendly and young instead of old and abusive. Nice new Airbus 320."
Cons: "Limited options for travel. They don't go everywhere that I do."
Pros: "The crew had a great personality and made the trip enjoyable"
Cons: "It was freezing cold on the plane"
Cons: "turbulence and did not offer snakcs"
Pros: "Nothing only wifi was there ...rest everything pathetic"
Cons: "Our whole baggage cane out broken"
Cons: "Plane was 3 1/2 hours late."
Pros: "JetBlue has comfy seats and is generous with snacks"
Cons: "Why on earth would you include BIRTH OF A NATION on the list of influght movies?! No one wants to be next to a seatmate watching that piece of racist garbage. I would have rated this flight 5 stars but seeing that in the streaming menu was upsetting and frustrating. This 2018. That movie should be reserved for watching in a historical context with commentary and analysis, not offered up to unwitting travelers as a perfectly ok thing to watch for entertainment. We don’t need more recruits to the kkk!!"

Cons: "First thing, when i arrived to check my bags the lady giving help was useless, i was really stressed and i asked her some questions and she was answering upset, then i found a guy who help me to do my things there. In the boarding there wasn't any space for my things, my carry on bag and my personal item .. i was trying to get some help to one of the guys working inside the plane because the top compartment was full, when i ask him he just say that space is for all in the plane isn't suppose to be space for you there if some other guest took it.. I was really upset because i paid for my flight ticket and it was included my carry on and my personal item.. otherwise i know there is more people in the plane but is not like i brought more things than the ones i paid for... if you don't have capacity for all the guest you should say it before... The flight was delayed with an hour.."

Pros: "Spacious seating available/ snack/staff"

Cons: "Hmm!"
Pros: "Flight itself was good for a shorter international flight. Dim cabin lights for early morning, crew providing plenty of drinks and snacks."
Cons: "For international travel, I’m always told to get there 3 hours before. For this trip we checked in but didn’t have access to a printer so needed a boarding pass. We wanted to carry on luggage so just needed to print the pass. Swiss was the only airline that wasn’t available on the check-in kiosks. The front desk staff didn’t arrive until closer to 1.5 hours before check in so nearly theall passengers were in a huge line to get passes and check bags."
Pros: "The fights themselves were nice, the crew was pleasant and the dinner itself was a very nice surprise"

Cons: "I could not obtain a refund."
Pros: "Loved the crew they were great!!"

Pros: "The children had easy entertainment at their hands. The planes were clean and comfortable. The food had a Swiss touch and the chocolates are always welcome in my family."
Pros: "The flight itself was good, smooth."

Pros: "People were friendly. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Staff incorrectly assessed documents needed for visas, and told us we were incomplete and needed to return home. Instead of looking up policy, we were denied boarding mid-flight, missed a wedding, and had to spend three days in London instead of our destination. Also, we got bug bites during the flight that turned out to be from bed bugs, which followed us home and caused much frustration for months."

Food was awful and made my friend sick."

Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."
Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."
Pros: "Good Virgin experience though food was not brilliant"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable. Hardly any padding in the seats and very little leg room. Far worse than any previous Virgin flight."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."
Pros: "Aisle/window seating!"
Cons: "My entertainment unit did not work. I was graciously offered an iPad, but declined, however, the picture quality at my son's seat was also iffy. Both my long-haul flights had poor signage for toilets."
Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."
Cons: "I liked the Airbus carrier which had only two seats (window and Isle) on each sides oppose to three. It felt more comfortable."
Pros: "Flight okay and staff attentive. Seats still to close together. Had to purchase seat to guarantee not be in middle rows. Plane very warm throughout flight."
Cons: "Selection of entertainment good but touch screen very unresponsive. Hard to change volume and maneuver. Ear sets would not stay connected."
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The crew of the flight were very sweet and helpful"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket I wasent informed that I needed a return ticket out of New Zealand before entering so I had to buy one super last minute and almost missed my flight"
Pros: "Very courteous and professional crews. Clean and comfortable plane. Pilots handled delay and weather superbly. Dinner was delicious."
Cons: "Dinner was great but could have used more snacks. Breakfast was ok. Movies were dated but okay."
Pros: "."
Cons: "For an international flight, the plane was too small, cramped and uncomfortable. Food had to be purchased. No entertainment what so ever. Previous I took a VA flight to Perth from Melbourne. Same distance, bigger plane, entertainment on seat backs and a meal. This flight soured me."
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Great food/service/options, nice crew, on-time/early"
Cons: "Entertainment system is quite aged, but selections were OK"
Pros: "I've been flying with Virgin Atlantic from the states to London on multiple occasions. It's an excellent airline with respectful and attentive cabin crew, food is delicious with variety of choices, comfort is quite good, In addition, I admire the touching gesture of Virgin Atlantic with their support for children around the world. Top class!"
Cons: "A bit better options with movies and music in the entertainment department."

Good but delta needs to be more upbeat about the boarding process in Atlanta

Flew first class - no meal and they didn’t let us know. It was a long flight. Delta first class isn’t really first class

There was a storm brewing in NYC but you would never know it from the flight. Great experience and barely any turbulence considering the storm.

Just a standard Delta flight: comfortable, excellent flight attendants. We had a direct flight, seated in Delta Comfort Plus, so it had a lot going for it, nevertheless, it was a good flight…

Very rude staff!

Charles de Gaulle airport sent us to 3 different gates and then delayed the flight by two hours, only to move it back to the original gate

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "With flying there is nothing perfect all the time. I was able to sleep on the flight and had a place for my carry-on luggage. I wish unboarding was mad less complicated."
Pros: "Friendly, patient and helpful employees."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better. We traveled economy and were treated like 1st class."
Cons: "Less announcements about masks we get it We don’t need instructions on hand washing Drink service needed"
Pros: "Crew was okay."
Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Competent crew"
Cons: "Too many people, especially children running up and down aisles during flight. Not adhering to COVID guidance. None of the crew addressed this ☹️"
Pros: "Great crew...seat spacing gives great comfort. Love they have a comfort class option. So much better experience than American. Wish Delta had more direct flights out of Charlotte."
Cons: "It was perfect!!"
Cons: "Communicating take off time!!! It changed multiple times by one three hours and ended up flying the next day!"
Pros: "Very professional crew. Nice equipment. Very pleased."
Pros: "New long haul service is a real improvement in quality"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Always late to depart. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Just the crew was super sweet and amazing. Everything else sucks. My seat won't recline and the flights get delayed all the time. Worst was the state LaGuardia is in right now."
Cons: "More on time performance would be great from Delta. Seats that actually recline and not get stuck. Screens in all the seats to enjoy entertainment."
Cons: "No customer service they do not care and it shows"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't by zone but all at once."
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Pros: "New plane, video in every seat"
Cons: "Organizing boarding better. Confusion in rules."
Pros: "Can’t do anything about bad weather-we got through despite a weather delay. Crew was terrific."
Cons: "20 minutes late"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Cons: "Seats very tight!"
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."
Pros: "I have no complaints. Not on"
Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."
Cons: "No food to purchase. The flight was over dinner time. Boarding - the ground staff’s announcements weren’t very intelligible."
Pros: "Free entertainment, free coffee"
Cons: "WiFi not included."
Cons: "yet another oversold and crammed into a plane flight from delta. the crew were nice and all...but the passengers were all ready to be throw into a battle royal pit to actually get on the plane. Getting real tired of this"
Pros: "I liked the flight attendant in first class. Unfortunately I was not in first class"
Cons: "I did not like the attitude of the obese old man (I, too, am an obese old woman) as I saw it toward some of my cabin mates."
Cons: "Seats are hard to get comfortable in. Headrests are awkward"
Pros: "How they take off and land"
Cons: "The price versus other companies"
Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."
Cons: "On one of my flights the Wi-Fi was down so it killed my entertainment but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't so bad for me"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"
Pros: "boarding process was good food was okay not great not bad entertainment was good flight attendants and service excellent"
Cons: "food could have been better but arriving to destination safely is most important"
Pros: "El personal abordo muy amable llegamos a tiempo"
Cons: "En el ahereopuerto de guatemala para chekiar las maletas siento q nesesitan mas personal estuve una ora y quince minutos para poder chekiar mi maleta"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Had to hurry to get to my train."
Cons: "At 6'4", seat access could be better."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "Breakfast was mediocre for First Class."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"
Pros: "Tail winds provided an early arrival. When my flight was rebooked due to a delay on my first booking I was upgraded to Permium booking and drinks were complementary on the flight from Atlanta to Philadelphia."
Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."
