Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Better snacks"

Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"
Pros: "I never boarding this flight."
Cons: "Better communication skills."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."
Pros: "Kind staff, comfortable seats, movies, easy flight - pretty much everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing- it went very smoothly."
Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"
Pros: "The flight was 90 minutes late"
Cons: "On time performance"
Pros: "I apreciated how well informed he captain kept us. There were several delays but she communicated freely and helped us to feel safe."
Pros: "Amazing service and F&B offered was wonderful"
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "Grateful Delta still has drink and snack service. Also grateful to still be able to bring a carry on on board. Good movie selections."
Pros: "low passengers, OK crew"
Cons: "crew was a bit cold, but OK"
Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"
Pros: "Being that I needed to book last minute due to my other carrier only having one flight headed back to my destination, of which they weren't even sure if it would be taking off...Delta came through in a pinch. It was my first time flying with them but the ticket agent was helpful and attentive"
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: "The crew was so lovely and accommodating, flight was smooth, and I was impressed with the meal service. I travel a lot and this was one of my best experiences. I will definitely favor Delta in the future."
Cons: "The airline cancelled the flight alluring weather conditions, when the reality was they did not wanted the plane to park in Kansas. The weather conditions were even worse on the flight I was moved to, and that flight was not cancelled. They absolutely did not care about the passengers"
Pros: "Delta crew & flight were excellent no complaints!"
Cons: "We were stopped by the Delta crew checking tickets as we got on to the flight. They let a party of 7 with a small child cut us in line. They even allowed another traveler to board with them. We were a party of 8 w/ 2 people in wheelchairs. They would not allow us all on & said only one could accompany them both. They were also very rude and unorganized."
Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived on schedule just as it should be."
Cons: "I couldn’t sleep in a chair... wish I could"
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."
Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."
Cons: "My flight was delayed several times and had to rebook. Total delays were > 6 hours."
Cons: "Both Virgin plans needed a deep cleaning."
Cons: "The airport and boarding process at SJD was disorganized. There were no sandwiches available to purchase on the flight."
Pros: "Gluten free snacks, hooray!"
Pros: "Courteous staff."
Cons: "Having to check a firearm inside and having it looked at by non-tsa personnel."
Cons: "Lack of food options"
Pros: "Flight was on time; captain was clear and funny."
Cons: "All went well"
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
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)"
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "Able to watch an interview. Then part of a movie which makes the time fly."
Cons: "Late departure. Late arrival. So I got my car and landed in terrible traffic. Which I had hoped to avoid."
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."
Pros: "The bathrooms were incredible dirty. I take longhaul flys very often and Delta definitely has the dirtiest I've seen! Bathrooms were very dirt on both flys (from and back to Rio)."
Pros: "Orderly boarding process."
Cons: "Overweight people being seated int he middle seat and sticking their elbows over both arm rests while comfortably sleeping."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."
Pros: "Delta met and exceeded all of my expectations on this Atlanta to Baltimore flight."
Cons: "Wonderful service, on time departure and arrival."
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: "Not much."
Cons: "We disliked that our baggage was lost and we do not have it two days later."
Cons: "2 1/2 hour delay; confusing messaging from staff about having to get a hotel because the delay caused us to miss our connection; but then we were told to hurry and get our connection anyway; there's no padding in the seats - very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew onboard was fantastic. The food was pretty good as well"
Cons: "Seat are extremely uncomfortable they are too small"
Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "Flight time, availability on short notice"
Cons: "Delayed, no communication, delayed at boarding, sat at arrival with no gate."
Pros: "I loved everything! Best flight experience in a long time. Really easy, on time, great window seat, thank you"
Cons: "Me probably. You guys were excellent!"
Pros: "Not much except that it was a smooth ride once we were up in the air."
Cons: "Space is AWFUL, Boarding waa AWFUL. Airlines consider customers cattle and don’t give a damn."
Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. And the flight was late."
Cons: "First plane broken, second plane broken, overall 4 hours late, 2 hours of that sitting in a hot plane"
Cons: "I had very bad emotions sickness from London to Dallas TX. After I got on the plane I asked one crew member if I have any chance to switch the seat to sit by the bathroom because I am very sick, but seems no one cares. They said there is nothing they can do and tell me to get back to my seat. The whole fight I was sick. It was a horrible no crews member were asked me how I felt. No crews member checked me if I were ok. I had fever and so sick. There were late. I never have any bad fight like this forever."
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful and the border of rude"
Pros: "nice gate, crew Very efficient boarding Very quick and efficient takeoff Rosario"
Cons: "We have a 4 hrs flight nothing to eat wasn't offere, when we arrive to Mexico we have to pick up our luggage from one gate to and other far away! Very frustrating because I have to take other flight to Veracruz, it supposed that I have to pick up everything when arriving in Veracruz. Rosario"
Cons: "waiting on runwat for 30 minutes"
Cons: "The cliff notes of this debacle are, inbound flight arrived late to Montreal, I contacted AA social media team to make sure they could notify the gate of my connecting flight, they didn’t after they said they did. Flight arrived in Chicago a little early, I have to wait 15 min for my bags from the valet, I run to the next gate and arrive with 13 min to spare, the gate agent (not nice) goes I’m sorry we already closed the door. I’m like, huh? Then he has the gall to tell me, “well had someone called us we could of held your seat”. That’s when I lost it. Needless to say I’m now flying to Dayton and back to Dallas. That’s in lieu of a 3:50 PM flight TOMORROW!"
Cons: "The sound on the entertainment system in my seat didn't work well. Also, the flight was really late getting in to Denver."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hrs!!!!"
Cons: "I was rebooked and the process between American and British Airways was very confusing. I was lucky to get a seat on the plane which I had to pay extra for even though I booked in January for an August flight. Also it was crazy that there was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew was probably the only positive thing of the flight."
Cons: "Late boarding because of downsizing plane and overbooking, than sitting on a plane for an additional hour after boarding completed while it was very hot inside. Departed and landed with a delay. Very old airplane with no individual fans above the seats, no outlets to charge devices and no entertainment system."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. We waited several hours for another plane to come, and this flight was cancelled as well due to maintenance. We waited in line for 2 hours to be rerouted and now we can’t go out until tomorrow afternoon. We will miss 2 days of our vacation. Terrible experience"
Cons: "Terrible rough landing for no reason"
Cons: "90 mins late leaving LA caused us to miss connection from Brisbane to Darwin now delayed additional 12 hrs. LA Qantas rep lied and said every 2 hrs there were flights from Brisbane to Darwin and not to worry. Truth is only one per day."
Pros: "The stewardesses were very polite and helpful"
Cons: "Avianca cancelled our original flight forcing us to leave a day early. Next they cancelled our return flight forcing us to come home a day early. Finally, when we arrived, they had oversold the flight and were short one seat and almost didn't get on at all. Will NEVER fly Avianca again."
Pros: "Fast booking"
Cons: "my flight was cancelled. I got a call earlier today that I was rebooked to an earlier flight. I had to rush out of the hotel to return the car. Flight was delayed for another hour."
Pros: "Both the departing and returning flights departed in schedule and arrived a solid half hour early. Staff was accommodating and friendly, and very helpful with me juggling luggage and a toddler by myself."
Pros: "Roomy leg room"
Cons: "Plane to start,delay loading,dlaying taking off.almost hour late arriving."
Pros: "Very quick fight. Faster than anticipated arrival"
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Pros: "Nice new 737 with power plugs at the seats Great efficient crew -- one of them really egged passengers to get out of the aisles -- this should happen more often"
Cons: "All was good Packed flight"
Pros: "Once we were in the air, the flight was average."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to several mechanical issues but the ground crew did not communicate effectively on the issue or how long the delay would be. I understand that these issues occur, but better communications and empathy from the ground crew would have gone a long way. Boarding was also a disaster because everyone tried to board at the same time and again, the ground crew did nothing to control the situation."
Cons: "I'm petite 5 ft 2. 120 pounds but felt Not enough leg room too cramped. Otherwise was good on time and good choices of movies and food"
Pros: "we upgraded to economy plus seats and it made all the difference - just having an extra 4-5 inches made the 11 hour flight so much more tolerable than the trip to Madrid."
Pros: "Plane was not full so more space. Original seat whilst legroom was plentiful the aircraft hull made the seating experience cramped. Poor interior space design. Entertainment excellent helped me concentrate on work. Left late but made up time in the air given arrival time this was good."
Cons: "Food especially snack was absolutely dreadful. Cabin staff were polite but have done one too many transatlantic flights and the process whilst polite is a transaction. The customer is not special."
Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"
Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"
Cons: "On both flights fo/from the America to France the tv's did not work. Made for a very long and uncomfortable flight!"
Pros: "Choice of entertainment was excellent , ice cream excellent"
Cons: "Food options poor except for ice cream too many extra fees"
Pros: "No drama- always great flying from Long Beach"
Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for long haul flights"
Cons: "FLIGHT DELAYED 3 hours, miserable uncomfortable plane- awful wines (grape juice) and not entertainment in flight-"
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Cons: "It took too long for luggage to be delivered. The luggage carousel broke and luggage was switched to a new carousel. A flight attendant made a big push for the American credit card. It was annoying."
Pros: "the airlines did try to accommodate by giving us optional flight when our connecting flight got cancelled"
Cons: "No meal options for vegetarians for breakfast. They just gave everyone a turkey sandwich. Rude, frustated and sarcastic staff"
Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, clean passenger lounge and plane cabin"
Cons: "Wish standard seating allowed for more width, better way to avoid reclined seat in front"
Pros: "Checking in was a breeze. Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Extra baggage fees. Older plane missing some of the common amenities like wifi and individual tvs. The cabin Tv was small."
