Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."
Cons: "The crew was forced to stay seated the entire flight. They conversed very loudly the entire flight. It was very disruptive."
Pros: "The timeliness of the flight and the service during the flight."
Cons: "The tagging of the bags. The bigger bags should be the only ones tagged. Smaller bags that fit in the bin should be allowed in the cabin."
Cons: "I’d prefer more a la carte food options rather than only boxes of stuff that include 3 things I don’t want."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time departure, early arrival, and outstanding landing (I’m a pilot, so can give valid judgement)."
Cons: "I requested a seat with extra legroom due to a medical condition over a month before the flight. I was not granted my request and was in pain for most of the flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost 3 hours. Not good. Once in the air it was fine."
Pros: "The where very helpful"
Pros: "They were late and and tried to blame weather"
Cons: "Explain that we will get hotel and else... Cheep asses."
Pros: "The crew was nice, and they served plenty of drinks. They even give a free light meal on the JFK-LAX flight. Decent in-flight entertainment options and free WiFi for use with WhatsApp and iMessage only."
Cons: "There wasn't nearly enough legroom. The plane was an old 767; it would have been nice to have a power outlet too."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was grouchy and rushed past you without really trying to cater to your needs/ get you what you want."
Cons: "Seating was cramped in economy, but you get what you pay for!"
Cons: "There is no room. The snacks were fine, but the main meal was disgusting."
Cons: "Being on time. First it was a problem with the plane but that was fixed quickly. Then it was something about de-icing the plane which took over 40mins which made my son and I miss our connecting flight. The weather didn’t just happen. They should have been prepared."
Pros: "The landing!"
Pros: "Free movies available in-flight"
Cons: "temperature during flight. Freezing then hot, freezing then hot and never a comfortable temp. Food was terrible. Entrees were flavorless and smelled terrible. Time they served food made no sense at all either. Within the hour of getting on the plane, they served a meal which made no sense because most folks ate before getting on the plane. Stewardesses were not friendly (only 1 made me feel valued and welcomed)"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. It took longer than expected due to the hurricane. When we arrived, there was no gate so we had to sit on the runway forever. Then the gate checked bags took forever. I was supposed to have a 1.5 hour layover. I barely made my connection as I only had 20 minutes left until takeoff by the time we got off the plane."
Pros: "We were offered food and drinks (including basic cocktails) continuously throughout the flight. Hot hand towels, comfortable seats, dozens of movies and TV series, all included with basic fare. The flight attendants were kind and helpful. Excellent service and organization!"
Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule. Each passenger was given free headphones and complimentary beverages and snacks. I love Delta they are a cut above the rest. They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "The limited space in our seats"
Pros: "Aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Ninety minute delay due to lack of rested crew preventing timely departure. No gate upon arrival at La Guardia LGA. Wouldn’t let passengers off after shutdown until all gate checked luggage was off the aircraft. Long bus ride around airport. Airport was a mess, with significant construction underway. Avoid Delta to LGA!"
Pros: "Our flight arrived ahead of schedule and the crew was great. Quick boarding although due to weather we were a bit late boarding aircraft however made up for lost time."
Cons: "The aircraft was a bit warm and there was no ice for beverages which were warm"
Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather"
Pros: "Small plane and a short flight, so just snacks and wifi, which was expected and was just fine with us. Crew was great."
Pros: "Easy transition through customs."
Pros: "great crew, very nice and helpful often looking for ways to serve people. More leg room. I had a free upgrade to exit row seating. Food was prettu good for a flight of that length."
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
Cons: "Short 30 minute delay; arrived 5 minutes late. 45 min flight doesnt allow for any food service."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Long layover in Atlanta. Terrible terminal setup in LAX . Although we were on two connecting Delta flights, we had to leave the arriving terminal and take a bus to another. The second terminal (Terminal 2) was small, crowded, and had few food options."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I was in a middle seat on a sold out plane. The person in the window seat was so large the arm rest between us would not go down and he extended into my space. Fortunately the flight was short but the combination of shrinking seats and widening fliers make flying uncomfortable."
Cons: "Change d for WiFi. Cheap"
Pros: "The crew boarded us efficiently, and got us off the ground on time, but the boarding experience is not pleasant."
Cons: "The food selections are limited. The crew ran out of popular items in the economy cabin. The personal seat lighting on the B-767 never quite worked. I eventually gave up on it. The overhead bins were too small for many roller boards, which caused some passengers to be perplexed. Delta should offer some inducements to encourage passengers to gate check bags."
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Pros: "Please call me. Why did you double charge me? I took my parents for a trip and you charge me 2 twice?? Call me 416 888 4387"
Cons: "You charge me twice. Call me 416 888 4387"
Pros: "Polite and thoughtful crew took care of our needs. Beverage service came through at least twice. Crew persevered through difficulties with the in-flight entertainment system and finally got it to work for us. :)"
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Porsha. The best flight attendant ever. Not"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Got us there on time. not much more can ask for on a short flight"
Cons: "Wish Delta offers more reasonable and available business class awards"
Pros: "Everything was average but the crew"
Cons: "I found them rude and not helpful regarding my connecting flight"
Cons: "No entertainment available"
Pros: "We arrived in Atlanta"
Cons: "I think Delta must have added more rows of seats, because legroom is virtually non-existent."
Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."
Pros: "The plane wasn't ice cold, which was a nice change."
Cons: "I couldn't close my air vent unless I wanted to hear a nice whistling sound for the duration of the flight. So I just left it open, no big deal."
Cons: "Missed flight with a few minutes and was not allowed to catch the next available. List the entire ticket!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delta cancelled direct flight and we ended up standby on two flights, getting into NYC much later. Not nice."
Pros: "A little more leg room than the next leg of our flight."
Cons: "The seat from DFW to SLC was designed for people who have a sever slouch. Very uncomfortable seating position that isn’t anatomically correct."
Pros: "crew kept hitting my arm with cart and butt. imnot obese at all...…..they never apologized. too small...…………...squeezed in"
Pros: "The idea of having inflight entertainment."
Cons: "1. Crew moved my luggage without asking, 2. Sat in window seat and it was easily 85 degrees, 3. Seat is not made for someone 6’2”. Neck support falls at shoulders which was super uncomfortable, 4. Inflight entertainment worked for a bit then didn’t."
Pros: "Is ok"
Cons: "More space between seat and free food"
Pros: "Crew was courteous; greeted entering and departing the plane. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Increase leg room and widen seating- way too narrow in width and uncomfortable. Flight, although it arrived on schedule, was unable to taxi to the to dock at gate due to lack of ground crew. I have experienced on-time arrivals only to wait on the tarmac until ground crew arrives is unacceptable."
Pros: "Most people had movies and other things to entertain themselves with via rear seat displays."
Cons: "My rear seat display never worked, though I complained about it at least 6 times during the flight. Nothing was offered to aid or fix the problem besides the stewardess saying she'd reset it several times."

Pros: "No complaints honestly. Crew was friendly, boarding was painless, and flight was comfortable."

Pros: "Quick time in boarding and exiting plane in Charlotte."
Cons: "Frustrating to pay extra for priority boarding so they don't require that my carry on be checked which requires me to take half of my luggage and shove it in my backpack to make sure that it lands with me."

Cons: "Very hard seat"

Cons: "Nothing, really"
Cons: "The parking garage is confusing, but worth the extra money to park there."
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight so I had more legroom, since I didn't have a person sit beside me on both flights. The flights arrive on time. Boarding was organized, quick and effective."
Cons: "Flight attendant provided a snack to everyone and forgot to offer a snack to me. There were children on both flights, kicking my seat through 60% of the flight. There was not entertainment provided for brief flights and the snack selection was mediocre."
Pros: "The boarding agent in Jacksonville, FL was a spirited, beautiful woman. She had everyone in the terminal cheer all the soldiers on our flight. And was very helpful to me getting a seat closer to the door as I was having horrible spasms in my back. She is what AMERICAN Airlines should be to all customers. Gate B47 on 9/30."

Cons: "Being charged at the ticket area for one bag and finding out at the gate it is complimentary."
Cons: "I've been waiting a total of 6 hours so far. My plane was delayed yesterday and they sent me home, which was a 2 hour drive plus car rental. I came back this morning only to find I'm delayed again for another 4 hours. I'm a patient man but this was a bit to much even for me. This is my first written complaint I've ever had with any business"
Cons: "I tooka trip to Jacksonville Florida and the flight was 2 hours late because they had no flight crew. Guess what on my return flight it was also late about 2 hours. Is this the new standard."
Pros: "The crew was pretty nice"
Cons: "My toddler wasn’t issued a ticket like he should have been so it ended up taking me a long time to check in. I had to sit next to another passenger with a toddler on my lap. Multiple rows had 3 passengers."

Pros: "Crew was accommodating."
Pros: "The credit was polite, hat was about it"
Cons: "We were delayed coming out bc the plane needed de-icing... IN JACKSONVILLE, but they were unable to get manager approval for de-icing and then the truck was out of fuel. Finally, the pilot moved the plane into the sun (which should have happened much sooner). During the flight, the cabin temperature dropped to low 60s and everyone was freezing."
Pros: "Waffle cookies were amazing"
Pros: "Direct Flight & Affordable"
Cons: "Zero Complaints"
Cons: "When comparing flights between only United flights, the economy & economy plus categories are a distraction. Especially if you are traveling with more than two people. When comparing across airlines, it is annoying because you have to add back costs that the "other" airline include in their price. In the future I am going to compare all "other" flights without United and then check United as the "low cost provider"."
Pros: "Oh all try other airline next time"
Cons: "2hours and 30 minutes delay time for unreasonable issue And a bayless little drink for 8 dollars + tax really."

Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Smooth and efficient"
Cons: "no snacks!!!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Very patient with a difficult situation."
Cons: "Issue with something in the bathroom. I was on the plane watching them decide what to do for 20 minutes or more. Then I had to de-plane (just my row) while they cleaned. Then they decided it was too wet. Everyone deplaned. They changed planes and we didn't leave for hours. Seems like they could have found the issue and changed planes before we boarded."
Pros: "nice and easy boarding, good customer relations"
Pros: "I like flying and window seats"
Cons: "There is nothing I can do about it, but the distance between seats is really cramped."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delays the entire trip for no discernible reason."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, unlike the people at the ticket and gate counters."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by nearly two hours, causing me to have to miss my connection. Though they knew for hours that the flight would be delayed, they did not have enough people working at the check in counters. There were not that many people in line, but I had to wait more than 20 minutes before being able to speak to someone. The representative informed me that I would have to be rebooked onto a later connection because the delay would cause my to miss my original connecting flight, and when I told her that I needed an earlier time to avoid missing a meeting, she just said "I have nothing earlier." She was barely even apologetic. Then she was unable to print my boarding pass for my connection. I had a 2 hour and 45 minute layover in Houston whereas in my original flight it was 1 hour."
Pros: "Helpfully and we'll guided"
Pros: "Frequent communication about the issue to keep passengers updated. Flight crew and gate boarding support were excellent"
Cons: "Plane's tire needed to be replaced. I was irritated because at one point they were saying they needed to fly a tire into JAX which seems ridiculous. They ended up finding a tire once the day shift arrived. I would have expected inspections of planes after flights and for basic replacement parts to be located across their network."
Cons: "4 hour delay. Maintenance issue. We were told Only one maintenance person covering the entire airport"
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "I paid extra for an economy plus seat and they gave it away. I had to sit in a middle seat."

Pros: "I realy enjoy the flight"
Cons: "Wifi is wrong"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Excellent, on time flight. The only issue I have is people boarding t the back and leaving their luggage in front. We almost didn't have room to stow our luggage. This shouldn't be allowed."
Pros: "Being able to use a digital boarding pass."
Cons: "On my outbound trip my connecting flight changed gates. There was no notice from United or on the terminal monitors. United sent me a text saying my connecting flight had departed already, but when I got to the gate a representative brusquely informed me the flight was departing from the other end of the terminal."
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "The departure was late. There was no explanation nor apology. As a long term and faithful Alaska Airlines customer I was shocked that a plane would not leave on time and act like it was par for course. Ehhh so what? I'm an older woman and needed help with my overhead luggage. The very young male attendant saw me struggling and just said that is not going to fit and walked toward the front of the plane. No offer to help whatsoever. The plane was small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Pros: "Flight was not longer."
Cons: "No free entertainment. Didn't give out headphones until an hour into the flight. Tight seating. No meal service."
Pros: "Got here"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "United did not service the final destination so they transferred luggage to another airline and then washed their hands of it. When one of4 remained lost they did not help at all!"
Pros: "I eventually made it to Hawaii."
Cons: "Flight was delayed >8 hours. Had to change flights with a late departure and more layovers. Took over 24 hours to get there. Ridiculous."
Cons: "No snacks offered on the plane"
Pros: "They boarded is quickly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed on runway for over an hour. When the passenger next to me asked the lead flight attnd about her connecting flight the attnd was extremely rude and of no help. Any ? was answered with "well just look at your united airways app". Then later I asked what gate we were coming in on and her reply was "the capt just said it". I replied saying "sorry I didn't hear it" and again the flight attnd answered "look on your UA app". I don't usually fly UA so I didn't have it. Overall she was short, snarky and rude with ever reasonable question asked. No one was rude to her but her attitude was shocking. I travel quite often and have never seen an antd speak or act this way to passengers. I understand things get stressful, but I def won't be flying UA again if this is the way they allow flight attnds to speak to customers. She way beyond rude and lazy and I hope the girl she was training doesn't pick up those traits either."
Pros: "This was the most smoothest overall trip I have ever had flying! I loved the new plane (from JAX) and the leg room since I'm 6'5 and it was very comfortable. Everyone involved in the process were very professional as well."
Pros: "Excellent service, amazed that on flight attendant was capable of serving everyone on the flight."
Cons: "A tight fit for seats, luckily it was short trip. I tried hard not to spill over in the other person seat. The arm rest did not help, made it worse."
Pros: "No entertainment. Water and assorted chips were fine."
Cons: "Plane very nice. Good leg and seat space."
Cons: "our flight was a little delayed, the rest was wonderful"
