Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Never flying with Delta again"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Rude crew. Dirty plane."
Pros: "Crew was super helpful and very accomodating"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything. A few times I’ve flown Delta, the service has improved. Having helpful staff on board is very important . Years ago it was very unpleasant to fly Delta because of rude flight attendants especially on us domestic flights. Hopefully that has all changed. Especially the older crew. If they can’t stand doing better customer service they need to retire . Happy to fly Delta and will let people know."
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Cons: "Delayed and did not explain why"
Cons: "Luggage drop was severely understaffed. We had checked in, had boarding passes but there was a 45 minute wait just to drop off a checked bag."
Pros: "Yes crew was great"
Cons: "More leg space"
Pros: "Pilot and staff were informative and great"
Cons: "I was forced to upgrade to first class by Air France stuff in Athens which they Deceive me not telling me that the first class was not for the entire trip to JFK! If I was informed I would not spend the extra money to flight on an economy “seat” which was not comfy seats for the entire trip"
Cons: "Just hate the super smaller seats and the reduced spaces everywhere"
Cons: "Equipment used has seen better days. Seemed to have difficulty starting engines and aircraft had loud squealing hydraulic pump noises not typically encountered when flying the 717. A little disconcerting."
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding"
Cons: "Good taste perhaps...?"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, huge inconvenience"
Pros: "Nice crew. Stable flight."
Cons: "No gluten free snack options."
Pros: "Movies were good, once in flight it was a smooth ride"
Cons: "Communicate better during the delay"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful! Food was good. It was a good experience."
Cons: "This whole paying for comfort seats is annoying. Just make all the seats decent for all travelers."
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Pros: "I was seated in economy comfort. Compared with Delta's Econoomy Comfort, I felt that the KLM seat had more legroom and greater recline."
Cons: "The dinner was awful. No choice of meal. Everyone got a small plastic contained filled with macaroni in tomator sauce. Nothing else. Incredibly bad. Breakfast was better. Sausage and eggs, melon, yoghurt. But who is in the mood to eat at 2 am?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "This was my daughter’s first solo travel home from college. She said the staff was helpful and kind. She loved that the flight was not over crowded. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Only negative thing she could say was her flight was delayed an hour. But that isn’t terrible considering all the holiday travelers."
Pros: "How friendly all the staff were and how quickly we boarded the plane."
Cons: "How the toilet didn't work, but it's okay because I think we could all hold it for an hour ;)"
Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"

Cons: "My luggage is lost."
Cons: "Crew did not offer me/ another passenger the complimentary drink/ snack. And made a face when I asked for a drink later."
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "We got home"
Cons: "Delayed. 1 hour delay they said. Gate change from d41 to d6. Went to grab some food during delay and then they started boarding about 950 and we were last call to board. Once on board they then had to fuel the plane and get it ready for flight that was another twenty minutes Finally in the air about 1045 Frustrating. I don’t know why we boarded with plane not ready to fly"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Condition of the airplane"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!"

Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Cons: "Too many travelers on the same flight, but I know its the day before thanksgiving so its the way it is."

Cons: "Healthy snack options"
Pros: "The seat was cormfortable and the entertainment was dope!"
Cons: "Communication. The pilot did not say when he was landing and considering it was a rough landing it would have been helpful to say. He said we shall be landing like 40minutes before Then quiet"
Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."
Cons: "The delayed flight was an issue, this caused me to miss my connecting flight. Punctuality is very important to me and should be to your airline."

Pros: "Included drink and pretzels. Free carry on and seat."
Cons: "First of all, the line to check in was extremely long and the employees were rude. When I put my bags through the check out they stopped me and said I had to throw away my cologne because it was too large. However, on the Spirit Airlines I had no problem whatsoever. Will never fly with American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Great flight experience overall!"
Pros: "Fast flight that included an afternoon snack, that was a nice surprise. Tight seats and no entertainment, which is to be expected for such as short flight. Got to our destination about 25 minutes early!"
Pros: "We landed safely; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work"
Cons: "Extreme delays; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work; Sitting on the runway/tarmac for hours"
Pros: "Not as other as flights"
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Pros: "When I went from London to Chicago, I felt one male crew member wasn’t very kind. He wasn’t tall but healthy and serving the other side away from the main door. I felt him greeting others with a smile but with no smile to me. I thought in my heart seems like he is discriminating, I could be wrong, but I always felt he wasn’t so humble while serving to me or may be other Indians too. But he was smiling extra to rest of the passengers,"
Cons: "I didn’t like his attitude. I would request you to request the crew members to be kind to everyone. Since Iam vegtarian ..I couldn’t eat the egg that was served an hour before landing in Chicago. He could have given me the chocolate inside. He just said in haste this has egg. I told him oh I don’t eat egg, thank you. still he could have been considerate and offered me the chocolate “Toubolron” but he just went away. Later on I saw everyone eating the chocolate."
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Pros: "Helpful crew - courteous in their attitude towards customers and helped tight connections get out of quickly from the rear of the plane. Smile was on for each interaction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50+ mins. The exit row announcement was made twice asking customers to acknowledge verbally which was probably a communication faux pas."
Cons: "Our seats were overbooked , causing us to almost miss our international connection. The staff were somewhat rude, but did try to solicit volunteers to give up seats and eventually the 4 passengers in my party did fly. But it was a very stressful 1hour until the issue was settled!"

Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."
Pros: "While it wasn't Singapore Air ultra quality, the staff did a nice job for an USA-based airline. I appreciated the option of watching first run movies. There was one I wanted to see but would never have made the time to see it in the theater. Done."
Cons: "Sadly, I am a big guy (2XL to 3XL). Halfway through the flight, my left thigh was throbbing from the pressure. I cannot afford first class travel so this will presumably be an issue until I drop the weight."
Cons: "American Airlines is always late"
Cons: "Switch our seats that we paid extra to reserve, was not a fan of this! Internet also didn't work after we paid for it. However they did make things right already."

Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."

The whole process of our flight went smoothly with our flight so we were very pleased. There was a group of 10 of us on board. No one had any complaints. Thank you!!!"
Cons: "They boarded group 1 all at once. I was group 2. They boarded all of us all at once. It was a cluster!. I haven't flew in 6 years. But when I did they boarded by so many rows. Not all at once . Boarding was horrible. It was like a cattle drive."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."

Pros: "Good crew, good first class , quick boarding"
Cons: "WiFi was slow"
Cons: "Thought we were going to have to spend the night on New Jersey. Because of it. No apologies or compensation. As a result, we didn't get home until almost 3:00 A.M."

Pros: "Late boarding, other then that ok."
Pros: "They know their business"

Cons: "i can't really describe how much a surly, snarling boarding agent can effect your flying experience in a negative way. We scurried from one flight to the next, and were informed at our gate that this was THE FINAL CALL and that THIS FLIGHT IS FULL...YOUR CARRY-ON WILL NOT FIT! About 8 people got on after we squeezed ourselves into our torture positions. My 6'2" husband folded himself into his "seat" knees crushed up against the metal bars of the seat in front of him. The seat back of the chairs in front of us made me feel claustrophobic. Just awful. And then there are no monitors, screens or anything to take your mind off of your pain for 3 miserable hours."
Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"
Pros: "That I finally got home although it was 4 in the morning!"
Cons: "Delays started early in the afternoon and continued for several hours. At one point the flight was cancelled. About 30 minutes later another flight was created with a 1-3 am flight.

Cons: "Departure from Chicago was delayed"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and friendly and boarding was fast"
