Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We read in the Delta onboard magazine about Delta’s commitment to women. Yet Delta coverups a rape by one male employee against a recent immigrant in a Delta vehicle. What say you?"

I ran back to the desk and she went back, found my bag, put the knife in there. Wow. What service. Also I notice that Atlanta is a lot nicer than it use to be. Attendants are more friendly and loading is more organized. Way to go Delta."
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Pros: "It’s become a mediocre airline."
Pros: "great service, easy to get on and off, snack options and drinks were all great"
Pros: "Delta Flights are always enjoyable and the staff is always treats you with courtesy"
Cons: "The only thing I don't understand is how the planes are loaded. and this is only a comment and I know you and others carriers have there way of doing things. I just don't understand why you load the first section of the plane first and the back of the plane last, It looks like you would want to load the back and come forward so everyone is not getting hit and stood over while everyone is loading."
Cons: "Very slow to load and unload. Not sure how I always get a middle seat in the far back. Basic economy is basic."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours- was just sitting in the plane for couple hours before it took away"
Pros: "It was a pleasant experience. The crew were very friendly and professional. Their entertainment system and movies etc on-board was very good. Food was great too"

Pros: "Delta planes are typically nice and clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times."
Pros: "Punctual departures. Adequate overheard space."
Cons: "Food was mediocre for a 5-6 hour flight. I expected a little bit more."

Pros: "Many thanks to Delta for changing our flight at an even exchange to get us out of Florida before the storm. I will fly delta again."
Cons: "Old plane to and from San Antonio. New planes make for a more comfortable ride"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."
Pros: "Got grounded for five hours stuck on the plane."
Pros: "As of April, they have free small meals. We had a turkey sandwich which was filling. Later came a snack, just enough to tide one over until finding dinner."
Cons: "Seats still cramped."
Pros: "Crew professional and courteous"
Cons: "5 flights cancelled, poor communication, total chaos in rebooking, lines 5 hrs long to get rebooked."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Although I paid for a first class ticket I was seated in coach. The plane was a commuter jet, and I suspect that Delta added one or more rows of seats because even though I'm of average height and less than average weight I had no leg room at all, and the hip room was minimal at best."
Pros: "Appreciated the crew keeping things low key as it was a night flight"
Cons: "There were several members of one family on the flight scattered all over the plane. They seemed to want to visit with each other before the flight (making it difficult for me to get to my seat) and during the flight (making it tough to get some sleep). It would be nice if they had been seated together so as not to disturb others. I know this really isn't Delta's fault, but some people aren't very conscientious"
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the entertainment system worked great."
Cons: "They overbooked (as usual) and bumped me from the Atlanta to Los Angeles leg of my journey. This put me 24 hours behind and cost me hotel money."
Pros: "Comfortable-love the 2 seats!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous"
Cons: "Nothing special about Comfort Plus for a 1 hour trip except the extra room and free booze which I do not drink. Pretzels? Why bother"
Pros: "I have not traveled on Delta for years. And this experience was great checking to boardING then the service was great. But I have to back up. The customer service on the phone that helped me adjust my flight, she was great. So I have to say delta was great"
Cons: "The first class food was okay for the length of the flight."
Pros: "It's what I didn't like....as a Sky Miles member I should get a free bag. Small aircraft for a FL trip."
Pros: "The flight attendant did an outstanding job, along with the rest of the delta employees with the exception of the lady who checked my bag and personel over the phone."
Cons: "For being such a "big supporter of the armed forces", they sure give you a hard time when flying on their airline. My bag was 9 pounds over the allotted weight, which since I was on leave I typically pack pretty heavy. This is the first time on any airline I have ever been told this and this is the first time ever I had a delta employee attempt to charge me for baggage because I was not on official military orders, just holiday leave. This particular employee was very persistent in making me pay over $100 for that additional 9 pounds. Eventually she agreed to let me have my checked bag for no fee, yet she made me seem like such an inconvinience that I was 9 pounds over. I understand if it is a policy and by no means am I trying to play the poor me veteran deal, but the employees attitude towards me was insulting just as a person and that's why I am upset. Also trying to adjust a flight with delta is a complete nightmare. They have zero sympathy for anyone's situation. Will be the last time I fly delta."
Pros: "Really liked the Airbus A320 (or whatever we were riding on). Plane, crew and experience were fantastic."
Cons: "uhhh social distancing!!!! We were packed in that plane...."
Cons: "The flight was not socially distanced"
Pros: "I was by automation assigned to a window seat, which I always seek to avoid. But before the flight, I had read in the WSJ, that such a seat was one of the safest, for health reasons! I give thanks to the random seat assignment gods!"
Cons: "Departure time kept changing."
Pros: "Really enjoy flying first class."
Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."
Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."
Pros: "I like when they dim the lights so I could sleep"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude, I was too tired to deal with her attitude"
Pros: "The flight crews were fantastic on all legs. They really do the Lord’s work."
Cons: "The only improvements were related to seat comfort. Often, after hours in flight, my back began to hurt."
Pros: "Crew helped us find new seats on board."
Cons: "American Airlines changed our seats after ticket purchase so that we were not sitting together. We chose seats at check-in in San Francisco so that we could sit together. When we landed in Miami we discovered our seats had been changed yet again and we were seated in different rows, middle seat!"
Cons: "lack of communication on flight delay"
Pros: "Worst flight of my life"
Cons: "The crew was rude, the entertainment system was broken, there was 0 leg room, and it took hitting the call button 4 times to get water after beverage service (the second time they walked up, turned it off and walked away). I vowed to never fly American again after this flight."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The delayed flight was an issue, this caused me to miss my connecting flight. Punctuality is very important to me and should be to your airline."
Pros: "Crew was nice and flight enjoyable"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Pros: "Easy boarding crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."
Cons: "Sat on the plane for an hour waiting for crew - limited air conditioning"
Cons: "AA cancel flights recurringly and has no ability to help their customers. Got I flight cancelled yesterday, and was move to another flight later (10:30pm) that supposed to leave ate (3:30pm). After several delays, they started boarding us at 1:00am, but the boarding process so messy and confuse, the plane couldn’t took off before 1:40 by 1 minute and they had to cancel the flight with 200 people inside the plane. An absurd! Flight was rescheduled to today at 10am and obviously took off 1h delayed because AA can't organize simple things to expedite the boarding process."
Cons: "The plane was so hot, by the time we landed everyone was literally dripping from sweat. It was so uncomfortable that it was cooler outside of the plane even though it was 83 degrees when we landed."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late. No big deal. Once on, however, they made us deboard because they forgot to do a security check. Oops. Flight attendants made the experience much better -- funny, enthusiastic, hard-working."
Cons: "A fellow passenger used the restroom too late in the flight making us do anther circle around FWA. Oh well somebody couldn't hold it."
Cons: "The desk people were aggressively unhelpful when I asked for advice on getting a jacket back that I had left my previous flight (less than an hour earlier). They treated me with derision and ridicule because my previous flight was with a different airline, an airline that is closely enough associated with American that they booked me on an American flight. It should have been possible to at least talk to someone that could address my situation but now I'm stuck with the likely loss of something important to me and a strong dislike of American airlines. I'm probably just salty because it happened yesterday though. I'll get over the jacket eventually and probably fly with American again. But I will always resent them."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Very uncomfortable for 17 hours."
Cons: "No charging outlets on seat ( this something pretty standard on most planes now). The flight was delayed because of the plane had a problem with the tire. The passenger next to me had a broken tray with tape around it. The bathroom had a broken sink."
Pros: "Clean and on time flight!"
Cons: "The Food"
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "CRJ900 is a small plane. no WiFi"
Pros: "Got an option to upgrade to first class and it wasnt expensive either, my first time flying first class"

Pros: "Friendly crew made a long international flight with a 14 month old as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "crew coming in from another flight was late. Then, according to announcement our plane had been sitting 2 hours and they would have to call for power. It was already a late night flight, now delayed 1 1/2 hours leaving. The plane interior was hot, that helped with our displeasure."
Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."
Pros: "Each person having their own screen for movies and Tv is great! Food good/ too much but spaced apart very well...overall excellent service"
Cons: "Being pulled aside prior to boarding because we did I not have a sticker on our passports... otherwise boarding was excellent!"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No safety briefing for infants, rude gate staff, primitive fleet, terrible customer service at all levels."

Cons: "It was slightly more cramped in the seating and it was very warm for the duration of the flight"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarded small plane too early Air conditioning did not work...sweated whole flight No beverage service seats too small for an adult, and I am only 5'-5""
Pros: "The movie, game and music selections were good. However, my son was only able to connect to the Disney movies. Something was wrong with his monitor."
Cons: "Food was awful! Service was hit or miss. One flight attendant was very curt in asking about beverages. They seemed to be impatient. Also, comfort level was poor. I am only about 5'2" but I thought leg room space was tight."
Pros: "The FAs on this flight were nice, engaging and caring, the way they should be, so I was happy about that."
Cons: "There was a teenager in front of me that was turning back every few seconds and made me nervous what she was looking back for. Then, there was an elderly woman sitting right next to me that kept pushing me every time she'd get out her tablet, pills, pocketbook, etc. By the end of the short 2-hour flight, I've had it with her."
Pros: "The plane was late and we could not catch our other flight connection so we had to wait 2 1/2 hours from the one"
Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."
Cons: "Being late, i already have long wait at the airport"
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight so I had more legroom, since I didn't have a person sit beside me on both flights. The flights arrive on time. Boarding was organized, quick and effective."
Cons: "Flight attendant provided a snack to everyone and forgot to offer a snack to me. There were children on both flights, kicking my seat through 60% of the flight. There was not entertainment provided for brief flights and the snack selection was mediocre."
Cons: "Only one bathroom in our section was working and by the end of the flight it was very dirty and not flushing well. uncomfortable seating space"
