Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I wish the airlines, all airlines would keep the middle seat vacant on all flights!! Such a comfortable feeling and flight. I’ve flown multiple times this summer during Covid, having that middle seat vacant has made traveling by air for me a very good, comfortable thing again. Don’t ever go back to packing us in like cattle car flights!!"
Cons: "My sister’s checked in luggage was in poor shape when we got it in Albany. We noticed an outside compartment was unzipped. So we checked to see if anything was missing and a souvenir from Mexico was gone. Then we realized a zipper was missing from the luggage and then decided to check all the other compartments and realized her bag of jewelry was gone. The woman at baggage services in Albany told us Delta is not responsible for lost belongings. Also tried to tell us theft is not an issue because there are cameras everywhere. Well you are telling someone that is missing a bag of jewelry that theft is not a problem. Also, there may be cameras everywhere but I doubt anyone is going to review those cameras to see what happened. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "I needed extra space because of my pregnancy, but didn't realize I couldn't upgrade my seat online or at check in. I was advised to tell the Boarding attendants I needed extra space and they promptly changed my seat and let me preboard. I'm so grateful and I had a wonderful flight back home. I was also very sick, so it was a relief knowing I could rest comfortably before arriving home to my children."
Pros: "Thanks for the monitors."
Cons: "The crew seems tired."
Pros: "It was a safe journey good rest and a very smooth operation"
Cons: "More vegan options"
Pros: "Boarded in good time, friendly crew, flight was comfortable, entertainment was good - and most importantly, landed on time!"
Pros: "I flew standby (for the first time) to London and check in team in NYC was great."
Cons: "Now, the team in London, wasn’t so great. They were a bit rude!"
Cons: "5 hours late!!!!!! Delta sucks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours due to a mechanical issue. I had to take a much later flight and arrived at my final destination after midnight."
Pros: "Friendly fast service to Albany"
Cons: "The EXTRA upgrade price from coach was a little bit better than economy coach but not much."
Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "WiFi and Entertainment"
Pros: "Seats were narrow and we were shoulder to shoulder. Plane was clean and all was on tkmr"
Cons: "Roomier cabin"
Pros: "Crew were very good but the seats were not comfortable for an eight hour flight"
Cons: "A little bit of leg space"
Pros: "Crew superb"
Cons: "Better food at a homeless shelter..ugh.."
Pros: "Staff were very good."
Cons: "We had an infant and in order to get a meal for the baby one of our paid seats did not get a meal. Very unsatisfactory for first class. The toddler meal provided was terrible. Stale bread, cheese on the sandwich was so bad the baby wouldn't eat it, and he eats almost everything. It was the first food I have seen him refuse to eat."
Pros: "After the long overseas flight this was quick. Nice that it included snacks and beverages."
Cons: "Had to sit on the run way a bit as we were coming in at Albany but not for very long."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."
Pros: "Good service and on time."
Pros: "No issues with the flight. All went as planned."
Cons: "Severe delay"
Cons: "Flight was late to arrive and late to depart. Not many passengers but no service."
Pros: "Quick service, good information."
Cons: "Not applicable, it was a good flight."
Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."
Pros: "Seating was very nice and a free move was a plus"
Cons: "Boarding is a free for all. People cannot find their seats and put their luggage in the overhead. Board the plane from the back first"
Pros: "At least the flight wasn't cancelled?"
Cons: "Five minutes before the scheduled boarding time, it was announced the flight was delayed by 1 hour 25 minutes. I am almost certain this was not weather-related, according to flight trackers. I understand that weather delays are essentially out of airlines' hands. However, if the delay is caused for other reasons like "mechanical issues", or any other errors or miscommunications within the airline itself, then they should be held liable. My time is worth money, so any delays not weather-related should result in a reasonable refund based on the duration of the delay. An apology doesn't placate customers' frustration and inconvenience due to delays."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They were attentive and very professional"
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average. The crew"
Pros: "Crew was nice, the snack was pretty good. Good air conditioning."
Cons: "Didn’t turn off overhead light. It’s usually off most of the flight."
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"
Cons: "I was seated in first class, and due to some catering mix-up, no meal was served. I was given a banana and crackers which was very disappointing since I hadn't eaten in 8 hours and was starving. No on board entertainment whatsoever."
Pros: "Free movies helped the time fly by. Stewardess, or whatever the PC word us now, Britt was awesome"
Pros: "The boarding process in Atlanta was as smooth as could be expected given that it was a full flight. I appreciated the gate announcer's suggestions to everyone about how to ease the overhead baggage crunch."
Cons: "Economy is very tight quarters."
Pros: "I ran from B terminal to E terminal to catch the flight and as soon as I sat down, the flight attendant offered me a cocktail as she could see I was out of breath"
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Pros: "The process was very quick and easy, from after security the process was smooth and fast."
Cons: "The gate that I was assigned to was a little overcrowded but I believe it could be because of the construction that is happening in the area. Also the security process was a little long."
Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Embarked and disembarked quickly. Flight arrived early"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped! Cabin crew not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Thai soup."
Cons: "Overcooked beef. Movie selection not as good as on domestic leg. We both still like the Delta One configuration on the 777's and Airbus' more than the 767's though."
Cons: "The "Delta Comfort" seats were not comfortable: the armrest didn't raise, so the seats were narrow. The handle of our suitcase got broken."
Pros: "Stewardess was great"
Cons: "No recline, no window, no hope. Yet there were other empty better seats!"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly crew, great service"
Cons: "I liked it all!"
Pros: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great, I had more space and I got a window seat so I was able to look out the window for my first time being in a plane."
Cons: "Trying to find the gate with the flight."
