Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "The flight arrived at MEX on time, but for reasons I don’t know, we could not exit the plane for an hour after arriving at the gate. This hour delay caused me to miss my next flight to Puerto Escondido, Mexico on Viva Aerobus. I had to stay the night in Mexico City because it was the last flight leaving that night, and I had to purchase a new flight to Puerto Escondido."

Pros: "The crew was nice"

Pros: "Nothing, the flight was canceled without a refund. I highly recommend canceling all business with kiwi in the future."
Cons: "My flight could have occurred or I could have been refunded."

Pros: "Helpful and attentive crew"

Pros: "Being on time with everything."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food & timeliness"
Cons: "Cramped seat and no window (14a)"

Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."
Cons: "The Comfort+ seat, while it had plenty of leg room in front, had a small width-box that many Americans (being larger than perhaps they should be) will find extremely uncomfortable at best, and unable to fit in at worst."

Pros: "Just a great experience Delta is still above the rest excluding Hawaiian"
Cons: "Cant think of anything"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Used the self check in kiosk to begin! That was awesome! But after that I still had to stand in line to check in my bags. That part of the process took a bit longer than expected."

Pros: "Crew was incredibly friendly"
Cons: "Wifi was not working on this flight"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable and cramped seat I had ever had on a plane flight. Even sitting on the pillow did not help."

Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable and hard as a rock, confined and tight."
Cons: "a new plane with more space and bigger seats, better service at T4 at arrivals, that place is a zoo"

Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "My allergies were bothering me due to the airlines allowing animals to travel as passengers, in this case a rabbit. I am very allergic to animals. My breathing was compromised."

Pros: "This had one of the best attendants I have encountered. She was extra friendly and made us feel good."

Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late. Then it was freezing in the flight. I let the crew know and it warmed up at the front and back of the plane but it was unbearable in the middle. It took me two hours to warm back up!"

Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed.. this cause a lot of inconvienece.."

Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. I also liked that the captain came on and updated us on arrival, turbulence, weather, etc."

Pros: "Liked the food, the crew were cheerful and helpful. Service was great."
Cons: "KLM staff at the AMS airport were not helpful. She insisted that our luggage weigh exactly 23kg. At 23.7, she had us go back to take things out with only 45 minutes to boarding. She was rude and unprofessional. Taking off and landing was a little rough. Entertainment on the plane was limited and a little outdated."

Pros: "The folks at Delta Airlines were great! Helpful and attentive both on the ground and onboard the plane."

Cons: "Flight was delayed out of St. Louis causing several of us to miss our connecting flight from Salt Lake City to Portland. Delta was of very little help in assisting us in making a connecting flight. They could have at least helped with travel arrangements and provided us with a little food, a pillow and a blanket as we waited in their terminal for the next flight on their airline which was a several hour wait. I understand these things happen but the passengers didn't cause the problem and Delta needs to take care of people better if they expect to earn repeat business."

Pros: "Flight attendant was great!"

Pros: "On time take off."
Cons: "No comments"

Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."

Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"

Pros: "In flight movies"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late taking off which made us miss our connection to chicago so we are stuck in Atlanta tonight with unplanned expenses we were not planning on!"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seatbelts very short given ample seat size"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"

Pros: "Plane is great. Comfortable."
Cons: "The staff at the gate at LGA were not too friendly."

Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."

Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."

Pros: "Spacious, clean, great host and hostesses. The flight arrived at our destination 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Newer plane! Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing just great"

Pros: "I had my own entertainment...none on the plane. No food...just pretzels."

Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."

Cons: "turbulance"

Pros: "Had exit row so more leg room"
Cons: "Did not announce zones well, no entertainment."

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

Pros: "Was kept aware of all the delay times and when, how to rebook flights for missed connections."
Cons: "Two hour delay taking off"

Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"

Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"

Pros: "10 minutes early departure"
Cons: "There isn't enough seats in the gate area and sitting on the runway for 10 extra minutes we could have been early"

Pros: "Although I am a vegetarian, It was nice Delta was serving sandwiches."

Pros: "First flight from STL to ORD was amazing. I was upgraded to 1st class...not sure why. Robert was a fantastic flight attendant."
Cons: "There was a delay on my second flight from ord to gsp bc there was some type of miscommunication/altercation with some passengers not wearing masks. I have been traveling since 11 am and it was annoying to have to wait another hour."

Cons: "The internet connection was terrible i was not able to see anything that was being offered"

Cons: "Not delayed every leg of this trip and extend the travel time from 16 hours to 30 hours!"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Cramped seating in basic economy, the upgrade seating wasn’t much better"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Snacks from Lax to Denver"

Cons: "No Wi-Fi and no food"

Pros: "Flight left on time. There was plenty of room. Nice staff."
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane because the valve for the heat was frozen."

Cons: "I hated that the flight was about 90 minutes LATE which made me almost miss my next flight (had I not jogged an entire airport, I would have)"

Pros: "Lots of leg room for a regional jet."
Cons: "AC was not very good. Very warm on flight."

Pros: "The boarding was quick due to the size of the plane/amount of people. The flight was short- less than 50 minutes."
Cons: "It was a 2x2 charter flight with very tight seating. There were some seating issues, and the attendant was a little rude about them to some customers."

Pros: "Quick boarding, departed on time, arrived early, good cabin communication"
Cons: "This is a very cramped commuter jet, just one flight attendant to serve entire plane, she came by once for drinks but not a second time"

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The flight was half empty and when I tried to move a row ahead of me (from economy to economy plus), the flight attendance rudely told me I had to move back to my seat since the economy plus seat was $70 more. However, a reasonable airline would upgrade their customers to first or economy plus to not only appease their customers but to fill some empty seats. Therefore, I had to spend the entirety of my redeye flights crammed next to someone while I was looking at an almost empty economy plus section. Also, we boarded earlier than expected but we spend an extra hour on the flight waiting to take off. I would not have minded boarding early if we had taken off early, but we took off an hour later."

Pros: "He was the epitome of the Friendly Skies. Chatted with whom wished to chat was quite near those that wanted to snooze on this early morning flight."

Pros: "The crew on the plane was nice and helpful."

Pros: "My wife was happy"
Cons: "Fixing my own supper"

Pros: "That I didn't have to walk to Fargo. I wasn't dragged off a plane."
Cons: "3 flights to Fargo were cancelled. I was told I would not get to Fargo until 32 hours after my original time I was suppose to land in Fargo. After spending a fair amount of time on the phone with customer service I was able to get me on a Flight to Minneapolis that did not arrive till 1:30am then had to take a rental car to drive 3.5 hours to make it to my destination. I was not compensated for any of this. My return flight from Fargo to St. Louis was also Delayed. Both from Fargo and from Chicago. I have never experienced such poor scheduling from an airline or as many delays or cancelled flights in just a few day period."

Cons: "Never on time"

Pros: "I managed not to use toilet."
Cons: "An epic storm (April 27-May 4) caused my bicycle tour across MO to flood out during our trip. Rescheduling my flight back to CA cost &230..same price as RT. Gouging people leaving a massive flood! The governor of MO declared a State of Emergency yet my trip cancellation insurance didn't cover what was clearly beyond my control. I'm left with some hard feelings."

Cons: "It was way too hot on the plane. I understand it's hard to find a happy medium with people on temperature but this flight was too warm, especially with people traveling with winter wear on."

Cons: "All was perfect"

Pros: "The service was prompt and professional. The plane on this trip was clean and in good repair. The snack was simple and tasty. It was a pleasure flying United."
Cons: "The first flight from St. Louis to Chicago was very small. While I don't have concerns about flying in a small plane, I can imagine those nervous about air travel would feel concerned with the size of the aircraft."

Cons: "Overhead compartment filled up and it was hard funding space for my bag."

Cons: "Had a passenger next to me who kept trying to elbow me the arm rest when I was sleeping."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "That I eventually arrived at my destination. The pilot on the Newark to Chicago segment providing entertainment as an apology for the delay of leaving. The television at the gates while waiting for my very late plane in O'Hare."
Cons: "The understaffed check-in at EWR. The late departure from EWR. The missed connection at ORD. The very late departure from ORD. My luggage was sent to the wrong airport."

Cons: "Little more time between flights would be nice"

Pros: "The window seat and being able to sleep a little. Smaller plane but a little more room."
Cons: "The ranch mix isn't exactly a breakfast item but at least they tried to feed us something other than just drinks."

Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I am still stranded and was given no accommodations so had to pay for a hotel in addition to costing me a full day's wages in missed work. The United staff I spoke with by phone and in person were neither helpful not pleasant. I will go out of my way to never fly United again."

Pros: "I like the seats and the leg space .they were very comfortable ."
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Gate agent was great.... Have me an edit row seat. But my 90 minute flight from St Louis, led to a 40 minute wait for my bag"

Cons: "super cramped quarters, like touching legs to the next person the whole squirmy flight close... the plane was made for little people."

Pros: "Rain delayed our take off but most of the time was made up. No complaints!"

Pros: "They got me on a flight home that night"
Cons: "I had to wait 4 hours in the St. Louis airport and 4 hours in the Dallas airport. Was a very long day!!!! I do not like to fly American Airlines and that was the only flight that was available. The plains are small and cabin pressure always hurts my ears."

Pros: "Quick board. Nice attendant who covered whole plane. Even though the plane was older and had less seats, the seats had more room than the last flight.Made me wish I always had an older plane if it meant more room!"
Cons: "Everything went great. Plane was at opposite end of airport, but that's just an unlucky coincidence."

Cons: "I wish we would have known ahead of time that we needed our own personal devises to watch a movie. We would have been better prepared. We didn't" have long to download the Intied app and for some it just wouldn't load so they could watch a movie. I also wish there was a better selection of movie to watch."
