Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "I didn’t take the flight. Due to a change in my post-flight quarantine lodging arrangements in Salt Lake City, I needed to change the date of my flight. Delta directed me to Aeromexico to make any changes. Aeromexico refused to allow any changes. So I was forced to not take the flight and buy a new ticket for a later date."
Pros: "I wouldn’t know t"
Cons: "To let me on the flight"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Pros: "Good Crew. Landing was very smooth"
Cons: "line to drop bag was so long!! but on the plus side, we were through it in an hour and didn't miss our flight!"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Paid for first class, expected something better than coach. Our food choice was a ham sandwich, there were better choices but the crew took them for themselves so nothing left for the 1st class passengers. Similar situation on our eastbound flight the week earlier. I doubt if Delta knows or cares that this occurs. After paying more than twice the coach fare, we expect something better than a ham sandwich on a coast to coast flight."
Cons: "Needed assistance for limited mobility to make connections at ATL was not provided. Caused us to miss connections and had two falls trying to get around. Air France was terrible. Very limited food and beverage service left us hungry and thirsty on 7 to 10 hour flights."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly or helpful. Not even a drink service on this flight. Atlanta is over crowded and always a problem. Couldn’t avoid it this time."
Cons: "Value for the price."
Cons: "The sits are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."

Cons: "I didn’t have anything negative to report regarding this flight."
Pros: "No issues"
Cons: "The plane was hot"
Cons: "No upgrade"
Cons: "Delayed because waited on a stewardess to show up. Wasn’t able to book my seats when we checked in. The last seats on the plane are horrible. Still waiting on the plane to unload. Definitely will rethink ever flying this airline again."
Pros: "The crew was very professional, hejpful and had good attitude towards the passengers. This made the flight easy and enjoyable."
Pros: "Flying first class and the attendants were wonderful"
Cons: "Not much to read"

Cons: "It’s was the best flight in my life"
Pros: "Nothing worst flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Everything Delta was so poor quality!!! The flight attendants were not helpful."
Pros: "No complaints. A puddle-hopper to a yes."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "It's a nice, comfortable flight with plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The coffee on board is lousy, but I'm not sure that is much of a surprise."
Pros: "Upgrade to first class"
Pros: "Very friendly staff and the onboard meals were surprisingly good. Korean Air may quite possibly be my favorite airline."
Cons: "Boarding process was horrible, it was first class, priority, zone 1 and then all other zone. There was no order. Flight was delayed. Had a 3 hour delay on the tarmac!"
Cons: "I don't know why delta's service has deteriorated so much in the last few years. Last two times that I flew the service and attitude at the gate has been horrible. Seat assignment has become a dread. Upgrade options are over priced. I guess I will be looking for a new airline."
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Service, seats, food and pilot were all good."
Cons: "There ought to be a better way to go from an international flight to a connecting domestic flight. Security and Customs should be combined to expedite the process for passengers and crew members. I'm not suggesting not going through security, buy why couldn't we do it at the same place as customs? Too often Delta flights are delayed and I don't understand why Delta wouldn't do everything it could to expedite every part of the process for its crew and passengers. I went through TSA pre-check with Delta crew members. My connecting flight was delayed. We were waiting on the pilot..."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."
Pros: "Nice crew, normal seats, TV etc. They were very apologetic about the delays. They gave multiple updates and came around with water/snacks"
Cons: "The plane was delayed to wait for passengers from another flight. We waited for almost two hours. After that there was multiple technical difficulties- loading the bags, closing the door, refueling...the list goes on. We ended up taking off almost four hours late."
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Pros: "Had exit row so more leg room"
Cons: "Did not announce zones well, no entertainment."
Pros: "I liked the fact that delta gave me free in flight entertainment it was really fun to be able to watch movies and TV shows free of charge."
Cons: "I hated the food I ordered chicken and noodle salad. It as horrid. It was cold and wet and not something you would feed to your dog."
Pros: "even though this plane was delayed, the crew worked hard to get us out as quickly as possible. We were only 17 minutes behind original landing prediction. Nice work"
Pros: "Excellent choices for entertainment in the 737-900ER. 110V AC and USB ports at each seat, lots of choices for movies and games on seatback screen. Free sandwiches handed out on board."
Cons: "Intercom didn't work super well. JFK is a terrible airport for connections."
Cons: "No entertainment and only pretzel and peanuts available"
Cons: "Very long delay leaving Shanghai. Was 90 minutes late arriving in Tokyo, so I didn't have time to run into Narita town for some real food as I had been planning."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Well the delay was the whole problem, so as of 11:17 I am still in Chicago. Nothing against Chicago but I didn’t pay as much as I did to stay here."
Pros: "Service by the ANA crew was excellent"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work the entire flight (4 hours from Chicago to Seattle) and despite passengers inquiring multiple times, we were never informed whether to expect it to start working or not. Streaming TV was also poor quality on the United app."
Cons: "I had kids kicking the back my chair & rude Passengers Florida to Chicago. Then connect to other flight from Chicago to Madison & the thing but, different passengers!"
Pros: "Despite a technical problem they got us to Newark on time."
Cons: "If they overbooked the flight, offer flight vouchers AHEAD of us being at the airport."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Pros: "The crew brought us water when we had engine trouble and couldn’t get off the plane while we waited for maintenance to fix the issue"
Cons: "Could of told us to get off the flight so we didn’t have to wait an hour while the plane was being fixed."
Pros: "Crew amazing, smooth flight and on-time"
Cons: "Legroom and the fact that there is even s lower version of economy now! Yikes"
Pros: "On time departure & arrival"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew and comfy seats, even in coach."
Pros: "They did allow myself and children to board earlier 5/4."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi entertainment was a complete joke. This was the first time that I used it but the speed of the connection was intolerable. I was only able to watch 22 minutes of a movie on a 2 hour flight due to buffering. Also, the gate agent never announced my boarding group. It was only because of the monitor that I knew I could board."
Cons: "We were stuck on runway for almost an hour. Plane was uncomfortably warm. Josh"
Pros: "Legitimately, nothing was liked."
Cons: "My plane broke, worked multiple mechanicals, returned to the gate, my severely delayed departure caused all my connections to be missed thus creating more compounded issues. HUGE HUGE headache. Almost forgot, I'm still missing my luggage 2 whole days later."
Pros: "The space on the plane, we left on timeand arrived early and I was able to sit by myself."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke very harshly to me. I felt very embarrassed and offended."
Pros: "At least UA rebooked me next day no charge."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip until next day due to initial flight so delayed I would have missed connection in Denver. Since UA claimed was weather related, I woulda been responsible for hotel."
Cons: "The delay!!!"
Pros: "Service was great!!!"
Pros: "Crew was fine and flight was very close to schedule"
Cons: "Harsh unpleasant enforcement of carry-on rules. Miserable legroom. Entertainment is just another profit center for united."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight two hours before departure. Weren't apologetic."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. This was my 50th flight this year and first time any airline has no free entertainment. Probably will boycott united on future flights"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great in regards to movie and tv show selection. Internet is expensive"
Cons: "Food and beverage service not very efficient. Boarding process for groups 3-5 is unorganized and I can see it leading to conflict on full flights with limited overhead space."
Pros: "Polite and friendly staff."
Pros: "I overslept my flight and United was able to find the next available flight into Denver which helped me tremendously. The guy on the phone was very pleasant and helped so much."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and hard to understand. Flight was delayed because of paperwork that wasn't signed, which caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "There is no food essentially. No entertainment unless you have your own electronic hand-held device."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "The plane wasn't very clean. And I might have liked another option besides a weird trail mix for a snack."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane."
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "The Embraer ERJ-170 has comfortable seats!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "There was a delay with the flight. I wish there had been earlier communication about what was going on, i.e. Why it was delayed, how long will the delay be."
Pros: "The Dreamliner is a very nice plane to fly on. Crew was friendly overall. Food was average. Entertainment was good. Blankets were too thin for a 14+ hour flight. I would fly this particular flight again though. Price was the best when I booked it."
Cons: "Flight turned around and I was merely given a voucher for a hotel. This was united's fault; it was not caused by weather. Now I'm responsible for paying $80 for a hotel room. I'm furious. I will never fly united again."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and spacious place were awesome :) The snack was very good, the best I had so far while flying. Service was great :)"
Cons: "I didn't like that because I was 4th group to get in the plane, all the space above my seat was full and I had to go put my carry-on quite further down. It didn't cause me any problem because my connection flight had a long layover, but if had not been, I could have been late."
Pros: "Flight wasn't that long. Experience was okay. Flight was full. Attendants did their job. Some were more polite and helpful than others."
Cons: "No request was made for the outbound flight which I want to comment about. At Dulles Airport, I checked in at the Brussels Airline counter, only to be told that since I was on a flight operated by United, then I had to go to the United Airlines counter to check in. At UA, I was handed a boarding pass which advised that my seat will be assigned at the gate. I saw on the monitor where the available seats were-1 window, the remainder middle row. I got the feeling that since I bought a ticket which cost less than what the other United Airlines customers paid for, then I was being relegated to seats that the other travelers didn't desire."
Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent! So kind, caring and attentive."
Pros: "I was very nervous, but the flight attendant made me feel at ease."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Old plane- lots of noises/raddles. Flight attendant not especially friendly, but that's ok? Wish United went direct from Louisville to Ft Myers. Need to add trip to Frequent Flyer Account"
Pros: "The plane was clean and the.05 ounce snack was very tasty. Incidentally, the tasty snack was scant. Sadly, I saw nothing appealing on the pay menu. My flight connected from DFW so I was kinda hungry."
Cons: "The seats are too small and if the nice big and tall gentleman sitting next to you is obese, the time cannot pass quickly enough."
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Cons: "Held up at check in because of understaffing. Long TSA line. When we finally got to gate wouldn't let us board. Then agent was extremely rude about putting us on a different flight. Have always flown Delta and am sorry I ever strayed. It will never happen again."
Pros: "service was great"
Pros: "Slight delay but good communication."
Cons: "Spicy snack. Same snack on all 4 legs of our trip"
Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence for the 1st hour of flight"
Pros: "The piolets and staff were kimd"
Cons: "The airline kept delaying and canceling the flights with little to no notification, resulting in people missing work, connecting flights, and other important situations. there weren't many employees working at the airport to assist the people who were in unfortunate situations involving the flight, including myself. Overall it was a poor experience flying with United airlines, but that won't stop me from future planning."
Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to find out I had a choice of movies to watch on my iPhone. Be sure to install the United Airlines App so that you can take advantage of this service."
Cons: "We were among the last 10 people to board and with the small plane size we had to gate check bags, but not a big deal."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "If you can tell that overhead storage space is going to be full so much as to pass out the green tags to check at the gate, why not just insist upon it? Instead of making me walk all the way to the back of the airplane and then having to walk all the way back to the front with the bag. Not everyone is familiar with all of your procedures without any explanation for them."
