Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Movies on any flight is great."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded and de-boarded quickly."
Cons: "Video entertainment system did not work at first and had to be rebooted."
Cons: "It’s time to update the snacks, bu thank you for serving more than just peanuts. I was very cold on the flight - unusual, but definitely very chilly."
Pros: "Confort was minor but ok"
Cons: "The flight was not on time. The staff broke my carry-on zip for expansion and refuse to admit it was a suitcase damage which need to be repair. They said put a belt around it to use it !!!! It is a 1 year new piece of luggage from Delsey which is a very good quality brand and expensive!!!!!!"
Pros: "Delta is wonderful! Helpful and on time."
Cons: "First class almost always guarantees a much better experience!"
Cons: "Overall, a good short flight."
Pros: "Newer planes with extra large overhead bins are great and the boarding process is much easier and smoother now with all the various breakdown of groups instead of by row."
Cons: "Late boarding. Slow de-boarding."
Pros: "Crew was so friendly!"
Cons: "Food; movie choices"
Pros: "The Delta flight crew was exceptional!! Friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paying for seats"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."
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."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and in time. I enjoyed the WiFi service and the extra room in the seats. Plane was gorgeous! Staff was courteous and professional."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, especially when checking in"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is nice but only seems to happen on shorter legs of the trip. Also, too many useless interruptions from crew during movie. You don't have to keep thanking the passengers throughout the flight. And the volume through your headset is way too loud on crew announcements compared to regular listening volume of your program."
Cons: "Forced on later flight."
Pros: "Once we finally boarded, it was fine- plane was new and clean and entertainment system was great. Agents did the best they could with limited information on flight status. Provided snacks at departure gate- but they were all unhealthy."
Cons: "Flight originally booked with 2:30pm departure time, was pushed to 4:30pm a few weeks in advance. Then the flight was delayed on the day by 30 minute intervals until 9pm. Finally, we were switched to a different gate to board a different plane. Then sat on the plane at the gate for another hour so they could load all the bags. We didn't take off until 10:30pm- painful."
Pros: "Beautiful new plane with large overhead storage, comforable seats and moveable aisle armrest."
Pros: "on time, good service,"
Cons: "i agreed to check in my bag at the gate when they asked for volunteers thinking I would get it at the gate of my destination but after i checked it in in gate attendant informed me that i would get my bag at the baggage claim"
Pros: "Free movies. Clean and modern look to airplane."
Cons: "Could not get wifi to work."
Pros: "Very comfortable seat and nice boarding and exit."
Cons: "Not clear at all on what was complimentary, etc. Had a very large man next to me, practically sharing my seat so getting any needed work done was out of the question unfortunately."
Pros: "Quick boarding, clean plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."
Pros: "On time service &no damaged luggage!"
Pros: "Lincoln ground staff is top notch. Friendly Midwest people."
Pros: "The flight crew were really nice and I was really comfortable in the Comfort+ section of the plane. It's a nice upgrade for Delta and hope the other airlines follow suit. Granted I had a very active infant, I didn't have any problems."
Pros: "consistently good"
Cons: "no problems... a little late because of uncontrollable factor... WEATHER"
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with tv in the seats"
Cons: "Huge delay on my flight and most other flights from LaGuardia that day, lack of information on reasons for the delays ."
Cons: "Weather delay"
Pros: "Exit row seat with no seat in front. Was able to stretch legs."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "So I originally had the free seat 11A. The app offered me what looked like a bulkhead from the seat map on the app at seat 10A for additional $19. I feel for it. No bulkhead, no extra room, nothing, waste of $19"
Pros: "Even though we couldn't reserve our seats we where able to call and change our seats to be together. (Mom dad and 2 toddlers)"
Pros: "Video screens at each seat!!! Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew very friendly. Plane was clean, boarding very organized but I would suggest boarding from the back forward. This would eliminate blocked aisles."
Pros: "Friendly, hard working flight crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Not necessarily their fault, but they rarely communicated why or what to expect. Despite signing up for SMS notifications, I'd find out from Kayak more than I did from Delta."
Pros: "Food and choice of entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Was stuck with the middle seat so I knew what I was in for."
Cons: "This flight was bad from the beginning. We tried to check in and immediately received an error msg stating there was a mis connection due to a delay on the cancun to atl flight. This made no sense bc the cancun to atl flight left on time. We landed 6 minutes late but had already been rebooked to a later flight to LGA. I'm also disappointed delta even allowed us to book on the original flight because there was no way we could have made that connection!! We arrived at our terminal 20 mins prior to boarding for the rebooked flight. It took us approx 2 hrs to get through customs and security in Atlanta."
Pros: "Ticket agent upon checkin was super friendly. Great way to start my long flight to Singapore. Departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "The flights were all on time, in fact a bit early. The crew was very helpful, both on the ground and in the air. They were courteous and not patronizing."
Cons: "Offer more healthy choices for food. Give larger amounts of beverages particularly water."
Pros: "One passenger was removed from the plane after 3 times he was warned about removing his mask before takeoff. Due to Covid19, United was boarding by row, from the rear to the front."
Cons: "When I made the original bookings, United was not allowing the middle site of the row to be used. Unfortunately, the plane was almost packed. 8 seats in the rear were empty."
Cons: "Better entertainment options. Wasn't prepared for using my own device and I didn't have Bluetooth headsets."

Pros: "Enjoy the United apps free movies"

Pros: "No delay, not crowded"
Pros: "Liked excellent food and beverage service by courteous and attentive crew. Flight was listed as serving only snacks so was surprised to be served an excellent Asian Noodle and Steak Salad and continuous beverage service. Flight attendant responded immediately when I had trouble with my headphone cable and brought me a replacement cable. Entertainment option with wide choice of live television was fine for flight and helped make flight go by fast. This was our first use of first class service, and we would consider it again. I had unsatisfactory experience with United last year and saw great improvement."
Cons: "I would have preferred not having to travel to Newark to get Florida flight since Newark Airport was crowded and boarding experience took too long."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight"
Cons: "I will not pay extra to access any in-flight entertainment on a flight. I prefer Air Canada's free in-flight screen access wirh unlimited movies available."
Pros: "Timelyness. On time. Crew was good"
Cons: "The small screen in front was annoying. No leg room so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delay before boarding. Boarded and delayed take off. Emergency landing in Baltimore. Talk of busses. Reboarded. Drove the runway in circles. Panic attack. Unboarded followed by the rest of the plane and we then boarded 3 buses that got us to Jersey in 4 hours. I reviewed this once. HORRIBLE."
Pros: "They check my bag for free but so did American"
Pros: "2nd class flight attendants were amazing they felt bad about the Greg situation . So we call ourselves second class as a joke now ."
Cons: "Went to use the bathroom in first class since one bathroom was locked and there was a very long line. He made me feel so uncomfortable and embarrassed me saying this is first class and it's a rule. Very rude horrible service"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "The plane was freezing. I needed to put on socks--really wished I had packed wool ones. The seats were cramped and mine did not recline."
Cons: "I was on a flight that had tvs in the headrest and had to pay to use the entertainment. Last united flight I was on before that I was able to watch free movies on my laptop. That was much better because I could select what I wanted also without paying for it."
Cons: "Flight crew didn't seem very friendly"
Pros: "The plane itself was very clean! We really enjoyed having the tv's. boarding and replaning, was very fast so it was nice!"
Cons: "Sadly, the crew seemed miserable. Nobody smiled. Especially the male flight attendant. We felt more like a burden than a guest. Sorry, but it was true. I believe it was our first time flying united. No snacks on the flight, just drinks, that's ok though."
Cons: "No leg or arm room it's like a Cattle car We are not cattle! Would it kill you to give a few more inches in either direction? NO it would not !"
Pros: "They allowed us to watch movies on our phones for free."
Cons: "I tried to cancel my reservation and they wanted to charge me $200 to cancel a $279 flight. My seat would not recline at all."
Cons: "We were delayed a bit by the plane arriving into Chicago late but the pilot did a good job trying to make up some time in the air."
Cons: "Never gave me the option to select seat."
Pros: "The airport was nice and had plenty amenities. Good restaurant choices, places to shop, plenty of places to sit and relax with cell charging stations. Lots to keep you entertained while you have a layover."
Cons: "Plane was over crowded.the seats are narrow and uncomfortable. Person behind me was constantly kicking the back. I was in the window seat and the guy next to me had a large athletic physique and was over-flowing into my personal space. On top of that he had a severe case of toxic flatulence."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues. The AC was not working but they had us sit in the plane for an hour in the heat while they tried to fix it. Then finally had us deplane to wait for replacement plane. Not that the employees weren't polite and courteous because they were, but the last time I had a delay like that the airline gave everyone vouchers for $100 off next flight they booked. Your company let us watch TV for free. Hardly comparable!"
Pros: "The crew and staff were very helpful despite poor conditions."
Cons: "Felt like I was not treated well as a united customer. Multiple cancelations without much help rebooking."
Pros: "The crew was so pleasant and the plane was very clean"
