Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""
Pros: "Crew could have been more helpful, had a 30 min layover and the gate was very far away. They could have told us directions"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Boarding and deplaning was smooth and easy!"
Pros: "Nassau security line was quick. US Customs line was quick."
Cons: "The Delta line to drop my bags was long and unorganized. The ticket agents were moving in slow motion. I waited over an hour to drop my bag. I thought I was going to miss my flight."
Cons: "Terrible delays"
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Cons: "I had a very large (over weight person sitting next to me. She occupied about 6 inches of my seat. It was quite uncomfortable. Did my best to be very polite and accommodating but it was terribly uncomfortable and closterphobic."
Pros: "Matt was great. I had an exit row so it was comfortable."
Cons: "Deplaning takes FOREVER"
Pros: "The Airbus was so futuristic. If you can make it more futuristic, even better."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to put my bag under when there was plenty of room overhead."
Cons: "They canceled my flight"
Pros: "The gate agent in Medford for delta was awesome"
Pros: "Food Getting moved to the exit row for the extra leg room"
Cons: "Didn’t like having to wait so long to book my seat and ended up on the back row the worst seats on the plane"
Pros: "I love Delta! Always professional, efficient and polite. They disappoint on this round-trip flight. They are my go-to carrier. When I call the people whom I speak to are always very polite and efficient"
Cons: "The person next to me was a very large individual and the seats were not wide. This phenomenon had nothing to do with Delta as a carrier, however."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "- Paid EXTRA for an emergency exit row and it felt like I was sitting on a hard wooden box the entire flight. - Food was awful/barely edible. - Plane was old, dingy and dirty. Window shade was broken."
Pros: "Everything was perfect and most of all ON TIME Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "How professional everyone was"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Flight was late to arrive and late to depart. Not many passengers but no service."
Pros: "Everyone who has a kid knows how challenging certain things can be in a flight and for me the combination of a night flight interrupting my baby’sschedule + a full flight it equalized disaster. My daughter could not get comfortable for the love of life and I just felt horrible and frustrated and what sucked most was the 9 year old and her obese father siting in our row that kept giving us weird looks."
Cons: "There’s NO room in planes between seats. It’s 2018 and new planes must be done ASAP to accommodate people better. I’m 5’1” and 110 lbs but adding my 25lb daughter siting in my lap before she turns 2 is absurd to expect that it will be comfortable whatsoever for us or the people breathing next to us. Please DELTA, lead by example and make sure your planes are designed with more room in between and around the seats. In my opinion, every seat should be first class."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "The flight was quite smooth."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats Oddly shaped overhead bins, unable to put standard sized bags overhead, meanwhile they fit in planes of other major airline companies such as American Airlines. No food options, only sweet biscuit which contains soy and milk."
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "The customer service was amazing! The amenities made the flight entertaining and enjoyable. The pilot key us informed."
Cons: "Middle seats are physically uncomfortable."
Pros: "flight was on time, food was good"
Cons: "entertainment was not working, not enough legroom"
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."
Cons: "We sat near the back of the plane and it was terribly noisy. You couldn barely converse with your seat partner or the flight attendant. These seats should be discounted."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed approx 4 hours which made me miss my connection and prolonged the whole travel day."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't very prompt, but went smoothly once it began."
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."
Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"
Cons: "Usable to hear gate agent announcement in LAX"
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Very early"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Good free movie and TV show selection."
Pros: "The entertainment screen was good. The food was acceptable. The crew was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "The seating. Isn't that always the case. Buy a standard seat and be squished like you don't matter - just an afterthought - and if you wanted better, spend another $100 bucks or so. Add to that insult the fact that my wife and I couldn't even sit together because we couldn't choose seats until we arrived at the airport. Really."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "The plane departed on time with no delay."
Cons: "They had two JFK-bound flights leaving from the adjacent gates at the exact same time. So your "10:30 a.m. to JFK" could have been either gate 35 or 36, and the doors were so close that the people were in one big, undifferentiated mass...rather than two separate boarding areas or lines. That may have been a problem of the Reykjavik airport rather than the airline."
Pros: "Delta is truly a great airline. Trips were on time. Clean seats and great people!"
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."
Cons: "With Covid they could hand out a bag containing water and a snack."
Pros: "I used my miles to get the tickets."
Cons: "None of the crew smiled. They seemed like TSA agents that wanted to stop us from coming in. They seemed mad that we were using their airline."
Pros: "This crew was amazing"
Pros: "It was a short flight but it was clean and comfortable. The boarding process was organized also. Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "The movie options they have"
Cons: "More comfortable seats & better food"
Cons: "Flight was about 30 minutes late for a minor mechanical issue"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and seemed maintained"
Cons: "There was a lack of a adjustable seat headrest."
Pros: "CREW WAS GREAT AT BOARDING GATE AND IN FLIGHT."
Cons: "LEFT 30 MIN LATE, DUE TO CONNECTING FLIGHT."
Cons: "Original flight was canceled and I had to find another way back to Tampa as this flight was 30 hours after the original flight."
Pros: "That the flight attendant took pity on me when she could see how flustered I was boarding and let me move up to the business class section."
Cons: "The gate agent was awful! She decided that my bag was too big to go onboard even before I put it in the measurement thing. I did have to rearrange some items - but then it fit! Regardless of the fact it completely fit on my first leg of the trip."
Cons: "To change a flight they want $200! That is why I changed to Southwest."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Umm, maybe a tv in the headrest"
Cons: "The WiFi to work."
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant"
Cons: "5 hour delay including multiple gate changes, being pulled off the runway and poor communication"
Cons: "I could not get the Wi-Fi to work even though I paid for 24 hours of it there was a different Wi-Fi Carrier on this flight than the flight from Munich to Philadelphia, he did not recognize me and even the free shows I could not get to work it had 3 different site said it told me the log in to in none of them work on my cell."

Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"

Pros: "Appreciated how the pilot managed to get us to our destination about an hour faster than scheduled. This time the free gogoflight entertainment worked. Was able to watch a couple of movies without any technical problems."
Cons: "Because the flight arrived so early, there were no gates available to dock. As a result, we were in taxi-mode for almost 30 minutes. This pilot tried to do is a favor but ended up frustrating all of us. They didn’t have enough food on the flight."
Pros: "We had our passes available on our iPhone to assist the boarding process. Very enjoyable trip with the crew and we plan to fly AA again in the future."

Cons: "The seats are too tight."
Pros: "Quick and fast. Slept through the landing and woke up to everyone gone and was in a rush to get out, but forgot my phone and passport, and I asked about it they went back there and looked for it for me and got it back. Over all good experience."
Cons: "Wish they offered water, but since it was short it made sense."
Cons: "I'm still limping slightly from not having hardly any legroom period but it's just a fact that you're playing too not designed for people like me"
Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "Plane was old, seats uncomfortable like all the cushion in the seat had been worn out, and a bathroom was out of order so we had to wait in line for the other one that would quickly run out of paper towels."
Pros: "See above. Worst flight in 60 years of flying.Their systems failed at every point-- changing flights without carrying over seat reservations "Too close to flight time""
Cons: "Attitude of many employees--" tough on you, suck it up. stuff happens". poor communication re flight change, rejection of AA Advantage Mastercard to pay for baggage check and get boarding pass and seat assignment. Rerouted me by 200 yards to TSA checkpoint I could see was 30 yards away. When flight arrived in SFO the arrivals board never showed it and there was no carousel shown for checked baggage. I finally had to go to customer service, where attendant just pointed to my bag on the floor with lots of others from the flight, shrugged, no apology, and chewed her gum a little faster before turning her back."
