Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat uncomfortable and hard."
Pros: "They left the bags at LAX. We we’re driving to Sun Valley and don’t have our ski clothes and equipment"
Cons: "Get our bags to us in the morning"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great. Aircraft was new. Boarding was smooth. On time even though we left 30 min late."
Cons: "The internet was hard to connect to and the gogo options aren’t totally clear."
Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"
Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it ended up being delayed for 4 hours and we had to take a cab to Detroit to catch our flight to Europe"
Cons: "The wrap didn't taste too well."
Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"
Pros: "Yes, everything was comfortable and the individual screens with current movies kept the kids occupied with minimal interruptions!"
Cons: "Honestly, while it would always be nice to have a little more leg room. I would like to fly a little more conveniently though as the back of the legs near the knees always gets pressure and cause swelling. Some form of foot rest with a stand might alleviate some of the pressure and ankle swelling."
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "I liked the wide variety of movies and snacks available."
Cons: "The kid behind me wouldn't stop kicking my seat."

Cons: "Cabin was too hot!!!!"
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Cons: "Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars."
Cons: "Never on time"
Cons: "Platinum member. Flying with gold colleague. He was upgraded. I was 1 on the list, wirh 3 openings. Asked gate agent, and she said just take my seat. Asked attendant, she said same. So spent flight in last seat in back next to bathroom, while 2 comfort + seats were empty. Did not feel like a valued customer."
Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Food was pretty good, but not up to their usual high standards"
Cons: "We landed hours late and sat on runway for 1 hour. On top of that this plane was our 3rd equipment change."
Pros: "Delta personel were wonderful and helpful both flights"
Cons: "Flights were continually changed both on route to Cancun and on the way back"
Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"

Pros: "Best Delta flight so far."
Cons: "Your company has the worst customer service ever! You ruined our family vacation and just have horrible policies I can’t believe it! Will never purchase anything off your website again! You suck!"
Pros: "The A330 is So much better than the A320, More room, movies, games, wish the flight down was on a A330."
Cons: "Nothing- plane was full and pretty quiet. Bathrooms were easily accessed"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Flight was smooth. Boarding process was good. On time."
Cons: "Plane was old. Not that comfortable. No entertainment on flight. Unable to connect to wifi. Snack options were not that good."
Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."
Pros: "Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)"
Pros: "Newer plane with movies."
Cons: "Airlines pack you on so tight."
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."
Cons: "I felt too cramped in to the plane. Our KLM FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED THE DAY BEFORE THE FLIGHT."
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "Distaff who is very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"
Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."
Pros: "I was comfortable in my seat, with the pilot and the stewardesses."
Cons: "I was charged for my carry-on bag. My first time flying I didn't know that I could have a carry-on and pocketbook to take with me."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."
Pros: "Smooth. Fast."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"

Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."

Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by over three hours."
Pros: "Great food and movies."
Cons: "Might have lost my bag. I was told not to claim my bag and that it would meet me at my final destination. That did not happen. I even paid extra because of the over weight. When they charge you 100 extra euro you expect your bag to make it to its final destination."
Pros: "The food was good, the service was excellent, and we had achance to sleep."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very friendly and helped me to move from a center seat to an aisle seat. They were good natured throughout the flight, especially one gentleman. The main meal was also surprisingly tasty."

Cons: "3 hours delayed"
Pros: "Very good main meal. Numerous movie choices Friendly attendants. Pretty good leg room."

Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Cons: "American’s little buses at DCA suck. Why should I have to wait for everyone who gate checked a bag to get to the terminal? Let me walk to the terminal, get more buses, or get more gates."
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful and the border of rude"
Cons: "Once we landed, we waited on the tarmac for good 20 minutes because something (I didn't understand what) was blocking the gate."
Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "1) Very uncomfortable seats and spacement between the seats too small and you feel very cramped specially when the person in front of you reclines his seat you can hardly move. 2) Very poor attitude of crew member when asked a question when she was serving drinks. She had a very unpleasant face, and her attitude was like she was not happy on what she was doing"
Pros: "Loved being able to watch new release movies and many different tv showed plus being able to listen to music thought the flight."
Cons: "Didn't like sitting in the emergency exit row next to the bathroom. Everyone uses it to stretch their legs and they end up standing on top of you most of the flight."
Cons: "Paid for gogoinflight, then is had a big error red screen, that said keep trying back in a few minutes. Never worked. Was not happy. Long flight."
Pros: "One flight attendant was very nice and petsonable."
Cons: "Already checked in and then flight canceled 10 hours before departure. Paid for preferred seating but rebooked on smaller aircraft full and had to sit in last row. Not happy and arrived 2 hours latet than original flight. Tried to explain this at gate to American employee but she told me to sit down until name was called. Probably could have had better seats earlier if she could have listened to my issue but she wouldn't listen to me. Didn't even have the chance to tell her what had happened."

Cons: "The amount of time on the ground"
Cons: "Delay more ran 2 hours"

One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
Cons: "The fact that it was a night flight and the lights were on 75% of the flight. They need to allow drinks to be an option."
Cons: "So. Many. Screaming. Children."

Cons: "No food service other than snack/ junk food."
Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"
Pros: "You at least have the one main screen to watch that everyone watches."

Pros: "On time, staff at gate and on plane friendly and courteous."
Cons: "No plug for electronics. Seats crowded with heavy person next to me."
Pros: "The crew did everything they could for the passengers to make them comfortable and informed about the situation but unfortunately it was out of their hands."
Cons: "It may be La Guardia Airport that is the one to blame and not AA, but long story short I was on the airplane on the ground in NY for about 5 hours. We had a domino effect of things happen that caused us to be delayed and then cancelled. First a Gate change to a different terminal after boarding was suppose to begin so we had to take a shuttle over and we're still missing 50 passengers, Engine problem that required maintenance, refuel because we were in the plane on the ground waiting for so long, deplane and replane for 10 mins because of a law, on the runway and back to the gate for all these different occasions. When they finally let us off the plane after all these hours it was because of weather (although the skies were blue and the pilot was confident it wouldn't be an issue) they didn't actually cancel the flight until 5pm, my flight was suppose to take off at 9am. They were also required by law to give us free snacks Bc we hadn't eaten all day or had fresh air--these were all chips and soda...in gluten free so I had to starve. AA customer relations said they couldn't compensate because the issue that was documented in their records for my flight cancellation was because of "weather"... my flight couldn't be rescheduled until the following afternoon, making me have to cancel work 2 days in a row and pay for multiple taxis and and extra night of boarding. I will NEVER fly AA or La Guardia again."
Cons: "super slow touchscreen response. menu of entertainment difficult to navigate and unimpressive content"
Pros: "2 flight attendents reset the unit but to no avail."
Cons: "We could not resolve it."
Pros: "Wifi available. Big plus!"
Pros: "Everything went more smoothly this time than on our way to Phoenix. Even though the airport was quite crowded they had enough staff to get us through baggage check fairly quickly. They flight was smooth."
Cons: "No problems on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "American Airlines delayed my flight over 16 hours. Very unhappy."
Pros: "The price was ok"
Cons: "The flight was over booked and my father and I couldn't sit together. The plane was loud and no tvs on the plane. Will stick with southwest"
Pros: "On schedule and met all my expectations."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Overall smooth flight."
Cons: "Little slow getting the plane loaded so it was late leaving the gate."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Internet is kinda hard to get connected to sometimes."
Cons: "The plain was cold It’s the first time ever I had get my coat on because of the temp No in seat screens and expensive WiFi"
Pros: "They changed my seat twice to accommodate mother's with children. Lost my window seat. Told me no more room for carry on bag. Was my only bag cause doesn't want to go to baggage claim. Cost me extra 45 mins claiming my bag."
Cons: "Not take away my carry on bag at gate (was not a size problem), don't change people's seats."
Pros: "Crew is always great with United."
Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."
Cons: "Food options have gotten old as I have taken this trip many times for work, maybe mixing up the choices a bit."
Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."
Cons: "Shrinking the knee room is a mistake"
Cons: "This flight is never on time, coming or going. Very poor on-time performance."
Pros: "I fly with United often, even before United was United when they were still Continental. I remember the seats being more comfortable and having a few more inches of room. I sat in the last row out of my own choosing because the middle seat was empty. However, I didn’t realize the last row seats don’t recline. I was just glad the flight was only two hours long."
Cons: "No free entertainment. You have to pay for everything now. The seats are smaller than what I remember."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and efficient. The entertainment selections were diverse. The seating was adequate for a long haul flight."
Cons: "The check-in process took 50 minutes at the counter as the staff told me that I needed a visa for China (transit) while that info was incorrect. I had to deal with online customer service while the person at the counter couldn’t help. It finally took 3 people at the counter to send me away. Once on the plane for a 14+ hour flight, I couldn’t use the bathrooms freely as they were filthy. The staff obviously didn’t maintain the bathrooms during the entire flight. The food served made me wish that I had bought take-out food for 3-meals prior to my boarding. the quantity of food was inadequate for the long flight as well. 1 extra snack would have been appreciated. I will likely book my future trans-Pacific flights with another airline."

Pros: "The flight crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "Though not the fault of the crew or airlines, we were delayed almost 90 minutes because a parent took their toddler into the lavatory while at the gate and they messed it up and plugged the toilet with paper towels and/or pampers. This was after I had a 8-1/2 hour flight from Copenhagen, Denmark. Also, the seat space and amenities are so inferior to international flights. The narrowness of the seat and closeness of the rows makes it hard to be comfortable. After being treated to two meals on the international flight, one small two-inch bag of snack mix is almost pointless."

Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "The turbulence was the worst part"
Cons: "After boarding, we had to get back off plane number 1 due to mechanical issues and were told that plane #2 was ready for us and that we would be able to board immediately. After all passengers rush through the airport to the new gate, we wait 45 minutes for them to tell us this plane won't work either. Finally, the 3rd plane we attempted actually worked and we ended up being delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "Had the most uncomfortable seats on the plane seats didn't recline as well . Also was giving no food not even a snack for a international flight which was absolutely redicoulous. Had to pay for bags when I fly American Airlines or southwest they are free. So your prices really aren't that great after you have to pay for everything."
Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."

Pros: "Roomier comfortable seating."
Cons: "Paying for luggage and food"
Pros: "Liked the new model for entertainment. Had WiFi you can use to watch movies/TV on your laptop/iPad. Also read email, do work. Very good flight crew on this flight. Worked at keeping us fed and watered! Long flight and full plane so they were busy. Crew in the Frankfurt airport were very good as well. There early and pre checked us in.
