Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "On time departure. Amazing entertainment selection. Awesome flight attendants. We had a very pleasant and easy experience. Love Delta!"
Cons: "Was refused to use the 1st clas restrooms but 10 minutes layer the flight attendant allowed an older gentleman and a lady to use them. I was in 10A with my service dog"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "Flighted delayed due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting 400pm flight. Next flight was 10:25 pm."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Crew members were all very friendly and made the flight a nice trip as best they could."
Cons: "It would make a lot more sense for people to board from the back and window seats first so that we are not climbing over each other to get to our tiny seats."
Cons: "Food was just a snack"
Pros: "Nice and helpful crew, fast service."
Cons: "The food was not good, the breakfast was tiny. Who wants a sweet muffin for breakfast!?! It was a very shaky flight. We sat in the back rows which might have done things worse. Not comfortable at all."
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: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Crew arrived late from Buffalo (?!?!) so our 7:59 flight didn’t start boarding until very close to that time. That delay, as Delta well knows, dominoed into LGA’s ATC issues and resulted in an arrival at DCA well after our scheduled arrival."
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."
Cons: "Toilets space are below standards"
Pros: "On time boarding, quick, friendly staff, extremely helpful"
Cons: "Gate should be bigger to seat all passengers patiently waiting. Was a mess of people sitting all over the floor"

Pros: "They waited for me as I was late"

Pros: "Crew members were very nice and friendly and dealt with the desire for passengers to switch seats in a very nice way even with annoying passengers."
Cons: "Sadly due to turbulence there was no beverage service and a very rushed snack service which I know wasn't their fault but just overall flight okay."
Pros: "Everything went well...on time, quick boarding and free gate check of bag."
Pros: "Staff are nice, and helpful"
Cons: "Take far too long, efficiency is extremely poor, missed flight due to luggages being lost, requested vegetarian meal, when booking, confirmed at gate but didn't have me on the list for special meal. ECONOMY class has nooo room for a long flight...and no entertainment only 3 choices for western."

Cons: "The flight was very rough at times."
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Pros: "On time departure; staff friendly; no security delays other than TSA now requires taking tablets out of luggage. Almonds instead of peanuts is a welcome change."
Cons: "Leg room on the regional jets. If the airlines narrow the space between seats any more, I will not fit into the seats. I am not overweight, just tall (6’4”). Luckily, the person in the seat in front of me did not recline their seat."
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."
Pros: "The crew was good and attentive"
Cons: "The management was horrible, if you already knew the pilot was working extensive hours you could have had another pilot on standby just in case... I'm sure it would have been a lot cheaper and less of an inconvenient for everyone on the flight..."
Pros: "Food was not offered on a short flight, the one star does not mean bad. There was no other option same for entertainment"
Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"
Pros: "Lady said she was taking the seat I paid an upgrade fee for. Crew did nothing. Said I should take her seat."
Cons: "Flight attendant kept giving nasty looks to a little girl that has to keep going to the bathroom. She also served drinks and crossed over my face each time without even saying "Excuse me." She kept bumping me with the drink buggy and didn't say a word."
Pros: "Service was excellent. The food was great. The in-flight entertainment was a impressive and a life saver. We will fly Delta again."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Embarked and disembarked quickly. Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Rebooked me on a flight from Nassau to Atlanta, and never worried about how I would get to Nassau from Georgetown, Exuma. Never even notified me about the rebooking. TERRIBLE customer service!"
Pros: "The customer service was great, the crew was great, the flight was great, everything was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Pros: "Delayed flight so water and snacks distributed before the flight"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Crew were friendly, half full flight was nice to have room"
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."

Pros: "The crew was friendly enough and the seat size / storage was typical for standard plane tickets."
Cons: "The flight was extremely cold. Coming from Mexico to LA we didn't have jackets / blankets on us but it would have been very helpful for this flight. Deplaning at LAX was ridiculous. We stood on the tarmac outside the plane inside a glass tube for 20-25 minutes with no information waiting for a bus."
Cons: "Overall good business class trip."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Snack selection was poor"
Pros: "pleasant crew"

Cons: "It was horrible. Almost 3 hours delayed"

Pros: "Huge clean plane"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Great experience! Entertainment was up to par. Had plenty of up to date and unreleased content. Seats are much more comfortable now as well. Service was great too! As a nearly 40 year old man they allowed me to see the cockpit and that was the first time I was ever offered in my life. Thank you!!"
Cons: "Lack of a decent snack besides pretzels..."
Pros: "Friendliness and attitude of flight attendants to serve as help passenger"

Pros: "Friendly crew, nice meal, relaxing flight. Really appreciated the opportunity to get the Dasani Lime sparkling water. Nice, healthy alternative to soda and such. I appreciated that loud PA system announcements weren't being made all night long during the flight. This allowed me to get truly relaxed and enjoy the flight part of the experience. Thank you."
Cons: "I flew economy so I have no complaints. The movies weren't my cup of tea, but I was exhausted and slept anyway, so it didn't matter."
Cons: "AA didnt give a boarding pass because of an error in their computer. When it was finally resolved the flight was gone and all they could say was sorry and said they would refund the money. They would not accomodate us or try to get us on another flight until they day of the returning flight. Unfortunately because of this my father missed seeing his friends and family who he has not seen in over 40 years for a reunion. We never received notification that anything was wrong with the flight and we were given the run around for 2 hours until they realized it was their fault and we missed the flight. Then they just offered a refund. In my opinion they were overbooked and did this on purpose, because it could have been resolved in minutes. I am disappointed with all parties involved including Kayak because of not notifying us of a problem. Thanks for ruining possibly the last time my father would be able to see his family and friends."
Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."

Cons: "I observed Crew at gate and on board rude to passengers"
Pros: "On time, courteous flight crew, and a smooth flight"
Cons: "The flight attendant was the rudest one I have ever encountered in 47 years. She had short stacked blond hair. Her name tag was covered. She was rude to me and very rude to another passenger. She should be disciplined."
Cons: "Seats packed it tight. One less row and a few more inches would be better. Shame the airlines have making more money in mind and not passenger comforts"

Pros: "I was traveling with my granddaughter who is a toddler. Just imagine waiting an extra 2 hours for the flight to depart."
Pros: "The boarding process was simple. We left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The flight was absolutely freezing and the air was incredibly dry."
Pros: "Your willingness to proceed with flying into a pandemic zone with total travel lockdown."
Cons: "allowing travelers that have been advised not to travel to Europe to either change or refund their flights. Your system for this is a bureaucratic nightmare, and the responsible thing to do in a time of crisis is allow people to make the right decision to stay in place. I am done using your service."
Pros: "World class"

Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Nothing, it was a pleasant experience after we got through SFO security."
Cons: "loudspeaker was way too loud - my hearing was fine before the flight...."
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful and very friendly. I had recently visited my,daughter and her family in March and flew with another airlines. I didn't have a good experience, they seemed rather bothered when I asked for some help. So this time my daughter booked my flight with United. Like I said everyone was helpful and very pleasant, it didn't seem to be an act. I enjoyed my flights. Thank you"
Pros: "Smooth and efficient"
Cons: "no snacks!!!"
Pros: "At all points in the process from check-in to exiting the plan, the staff was quick to step in and help with direction to keep everyone moving."
Cons: "A teacher was put into tears at the gate agent desk prior to boarding because she had a purse and a shopping bag but had a ticket that only allowed one bag that could not be a full roller board. I did see her eventually board wiping her tears away with a single bag, so she either paid the extra $50 or they figured something out."
Pros: "Great flight and crew"
Cons: "The lady diana that helped change my seat at the gate had a bad attitude with my husband. She ended up over charging him to change my seat. Then he had to wait some time to get it resolved. Her whole attitude before and after was just not customer friendly. Please change her shift cause she does not seem to be a happy morning person"
Pros: "This reflects first leg flight from San Fran to Chicago."
Cons: "Cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "I was able to move my dear and get better leg room. Really appreciated that!"
Cons: "Teeny snack."
Pros: "More legroom than on the international flight we took to get to Houston"
Cons: "Arrival time in Jacksonville too late at night."
Pros: "Instead of just giving a cup of the beverage of choice, they gave us the whole can. I liked the snack they handed out much better than the pretzels on the trip out. The wheelchair assistance was wonderful."
Cons: "You ask us to rate the entertainment, but there isn't a n/a box and there really isn't any unless you use an electronic device."
Cons: "seat comfort, or rather discomfort"
Pros: "The older planes of United Airlines could use some remodeling. The entertainment system with controls in the middle of the arm rest where the elbow rests is such a bad idea, didn't even bother with this crappy unintuitive system. It was annoying and flashy with bright advertisements or something popping up on a night time flight just sooooooo annoying, turning it off was not intuitive and had to ask the flight attendants how to turn it off during their very busy work of handing out packages with five miniature pretzels and drinks to the passengers, was happy to get a whole cab of juice to myself though."
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Long delay due a wheelchair. Really? You've never had a wheelchair on board before? Yes, this one did have batteries, but is that so unusual? Our delay was over an hour."
Pros: "TSA precheck, Group 2 boarding, more room in seat"
Cons: "The usual things that you can't do much about: small package of pretzels, bathrooms, crowded. I wasn't unhappy, it just goes with flying."
Pros: "I have no complaints. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Flight left right on time and we even arrived in Cleveland 30 mins early. It was a full flight and was even overbooked, I volunteered to take another flight to provide room but then it turned out I was able to take the last seat. Small but clean airplane."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew and ground staff kept us fairly well updated"
Cons: "An excessive delay that included having a part flown to Monterey from Los Angeles"
Pros: "I was too sick to wait in the airport between flights and my husband came up to Denver and picked. Me up."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Bad crew attitude No entertainment Terrible baggage policy Poor snack options Absolutely no leg room Since Continental was taken over by United it's been going downhill but this flight was just awful. After living in the Newark, NJ area for over 20 years and flying with them as long, I'm awfully tired of them. I will consider other airport options for nonstop flights or do layovers bc I can't stand their overpriced seats and poor service."
Cons: "united airlines planes are very old"
Pros: "These days we can all admit flying is not what it used to be before 9/11. It's still professional and curtious, but the awareness and appreciation of passengers has dwindled. Stewards and stewardesses go through the motions and do just what they need to do not more. The pilots got the plane to its destination well within the time sometimes even a half an hour early. But sometimes being that early means sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes which cut it close to missing my next flight. Flights used to offer blankets if passengers were cold. If the plane is not full they do allow passengers to move seats to be more comfortable. The complementary beverage is still always a nice touch but seconds aren't offered and cups are often taken before they're finished. It would be nice to see our country's airlines go back to a little more awareness and appreciation for one another, and work to improving their levels to above satisfactory. The flight was supposed to have entertainment viewable on personal devices but going through the app to select something was told this flight didn't have access. Overall it was satisfactory."
Cons: "It was a little too cold on the plane. Blankets weren't offered. The food while it looked delicious needed to be warmed and the only option was coffee for warming it."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Cons: "I didn't like every fight being cancelled, every gate being moved, and my luggage being lost."
Pros: "They were excellent"
Pros: "I got a seat that had extended leg room so that was good."
Cons: "The plane was relatively old and therefore the entertainment system was very poor. The screen quality was bad and could hardly see the movies. The touch screen did not work well and the screen kept falling down (I had one that came out of the arm of the seat). I noticed those around me had the same issues with their entertainment systems. The service on the plane was just adequate with the staff fairly efficient but not very outgoing or positive. I recently flew LOT and Lufthansa internationally in coach (economy plus) and they provided better meals, towels for washing, more and frequent drink runs and better snacks. Overall, just a mediocre flight -- not terrible, but not good."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Dominican Republic on time."
Cons: "However the crew was horrible; there was no food provided. (Crackers j don't call food)."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "We have a list a cookie on the fly"
Cons: "The see were too cloused"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to pilot and crew never showing up. Customer service didn't offer a hotel or any type of compensation for wasting time and money. Instead they put me on a flight another day which I incurred cost on parking, hotel, food and etc."
Cons: "Check in was was understaffed waited for 30 before assisted"
Cons: "Crew was late & delayed boarding."
