Pros: "Highly attentive crew, extremely helpful, made a bad day bearable"

Pros: "Crew was helpful, friendly and offered great service."
Cons: "I felt everything was pretty much fine. I thought that some of the Captain's announcements were hard to hear, but it's just a minor issue."

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Clean the cabin more diligently. There was a open unfinished cup of soda and cookie wrappers in my seat back compartment"

Pros: "When i asked for a window seat at the gate, i was provided one in the comfort zone. Very impressed and pleased. However, the remaining two segments were the opposite. Staff at the gate did not assist in any way for the remaining two flights."
Cons: "The flight from Bend to Seattle was delayed a couple times and caused us to arrive when our connecting flight was already boarding. Luckily we were able to make the main flight on the trip."

Pros: "Very helpful and professional crew, despite some pretty snarky passengers. Seemed to go out of their way to accommodate everyone."
Cons: "Bigger seats would have been nice, but these were okay. Changing planes at JFK was tight due to late departure from Atlanta, but it worked out. Overall, no complaints and I would fly Delta again given the opportunity and choice. Thanks!"

Cons: "My flight was delayed almost 3 hours. Not good. Once in the air it was fine."

Cons: "Less legroom than other airlines but have never flown to South America before"

Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."

Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."

Cons: "My son and I had seats in different places and they asked him to move forward several rows because of weight and the seat beside him was empty so I asked if I could sit next to him and they said no without giving any explanation.

BA booked me on the flight but failed to change my ticket from the original flight causing me to miss the flight from Kansas City. At the airport BA agent told me on the phone that I would have to wait 3 more days after I had already waited 3 days because BA canceled my original flight. Because of the flight cancelation I missed two days of work and because of the failure to ticket my following flight I almost missed a full week of work.

Do you keep just one bottle for this big 777 fight. - Overall experience was horrible."
