Cons: "Purchased food on board. Dry and unappealing."

Pros: "I have used Delta long time. Used to be really bad. Today. Good good."
Cons: "Free beer"

Cons: "90 minute delay"

Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."

Pros: "Desk attendant was very helpful, personable, and efficient"
Cons: "Couldn’t get a boarding pass for the last leg of my trip (AZO>DTW>ATL>CSG) when I checked in online, couldn’t get it at the Delta counter in AZO, nor in DTW. The staff at the Delta counter in ATL resolved it in less than ten seconds."

Pros: "The croissants were great!"

Cons: "Boarding was very slow and exiting the plane was also slower than normal. An overhead bin was locked and that delayed passengers"

Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."

Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."

Pros: "Wine included with meal no extra charge. Thanks"
Cons: "More comfortable seats in main cabin"

Pros: "The entire thing, food, service, and ..."
Cons: "More room in each seat"

Pros: "On time this time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"

Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."

Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."

Pros: "Good flight attendants.."
Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "Our flight attendant was excellent. Service with a smile."
Cons: "We almost missed the flight sitting right in front of the gate. No announcements could be heard in the gate area and when we asked, they said they were already removing our luggage, Very odd. Food was terrible! Choices were pasta and cold chicken salad. I had the pasta, which was bland ravioli in two bland sauces. I was surprised, because I had experienced better food on recent international flights."

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Pros: "Couldn't recline as I was in the emergency exit row but I had some extra room with no seat next to me so that was nice"
Cons: "Couldn't recline in my emergency exit row"

Pros: "Nice flight and good staff and service"

Cons: "After waiting patiently through a 3 hour delay we were inbound to Minneapolis. We were set to arrive at 9:45 pm and there were multiple 10 pm connections. Delta flew into the furthest gate away, didn't communicate with the connecting flights to give it 5 more minutes and didn't have transportation waiting to bring us top our connections. After ruining across the entire length of the MSP concourse I arrived at 9:58 only to be told they already left. Worst communication I've ever seen. Delta should be ashamed."

Cons: "Courtesy, on time and good communication."

Pros: "Space in seats was better than most airlines"
Cons: "That they charge for bags. It is now an industry standard, nevertheless, it's a way of stealing to customers. Airlines shouldn't charge for bags"

Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."

Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."

Cons: "I'm not sure what to say about Delta and their maintenance program. On a three part trip, Delta cancelled two of the flights giving maintenance as the reason. So it appears they are flying planes until they breakdown. Besides making me not trust the flight worthiness, the cancelations turned my 8 and a half hour trip into a 25 hour trip forcing me to spend the night in the MEX airport."

Pros: "They did fly.... finally"
Cons: "Missed connection to Bangor. Had to overnight in NYC. Substituted smaller plane for this transcontinental flight."

Cons: "Weather delay"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."

Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."

Cons: "Extreme delays"

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Was ok"

Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."

Pros: "Weather, I think, caused a delay for my flight to Atlanta from Dallas which results in missing my connection. I was traveling with my 4-year old granddaughter. However, when I arrived having already missed my flight, I found special assistance area and was able to immediately connect with an agent who booked us on the next flight (last flight of the day to Richmond). Saving the day."
Cons: "All the planes were full and did not have enough room for carry on causing delays and getting the flight off later. The gate agents and crew did what they could to get the plane loaded faster, but they loaded the front first and those in the back could not get past making loading the plane take even longer."

Cons: "Cramped"

Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat"

Pros: "That it ended!"
Cons: "5 hours in the air. Not the fault of Delta."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

Pros: "Same as Boston to Minneapolis."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Good flight, comfortable; good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept failing"

Pros: "The following day had different employees working so they weren't as rude as they were on my original day of travel."
Cons: "Having a domestic leg of travel that includes ATL to LAX as part of your international travel plans is horrible with Delta Airlines. The rude gate employee decides to check my carry on piece to my destination. I explain that I have a14 hour connection and I need the small arty on piece for that flight. I was asked to talk to the other gate employee while they gave my seat away. It's horrible how rude and dismissive they were. I asked for compensation but they started to lie. Apparently I 'gave' up my seat. Once the shift manager started to help me, I thought things would've ok. It got worse. The Delta training took over. Both employees repeated the exact same words about me volunteering my seat so there's no compensation. It cost me a hotel night and 24 hours. I will avoid Delta at all costs... and I know it will be difficult since flying through ATL is pretty much alway Delta. But, it's too much. Lying, rude and dismissive employees at various levels of management. Horrible"

Pros: "Comfortable-love the 2 seats!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "I liked that I had a vacant seat next to me."
Cons: "Small, narrow seats and way too cramped. Absolutely no leg room or much space to the seat in front. Terrible for a long haul international flight compared to other airlines. No free alcohol on an international flight!"
