Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "It was a 4+ hr flight, so some food would have been good. Could have given protein shakes or something."
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?"
Pros: "Delayed boarding but made up for lost time in the air"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "Delayed, packed, bought a sandwich! Good sandwiches!"
Cons: "Packed and delayed"
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"
Cons: "Need to have food choices available for those with allergies. Almost everything had gluten and soy in it and I am very allergic to those. I had to give away all snacks and most of my food. Even in comfort+ class the seats are tiny with little legroom. Also, please clean the bathroom every few hours"
Cons: "No delay"
Cons: "The crew members were very rude and they called me an IDIOT!! Yes they did because the forced me to check my carry on bag and i didnt want they are racists"
Pros: "Having the whole center three seats to myself. The food and beverages were really good as well."
Cons: "Both flights were significantly late to depart. Also the WiFi on the transatlantic flight was out."
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "I like how friendly the crew was"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour and we had a connecting flight IN ATL that we had to get to in :30 minutes. By the time we got off the plane we had :15 minutes to get to our connecting flight. We barely made it. They were about to close the door on us. Didnt really appreciate that."
Pros: "Good food, entertainment and Delta Comfort section worth the extra cost."
Cons: "Boarding at JFK a nightmare."
Pros: "No surprises. On time. Courteous. I suppose the most amazing thing is their app. It tells you when your bags get on! Also I forgot that I had a knife in my pocket. 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: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."
Pros: "It’s become a mediocre airline."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I didn’t have anything negative to report regarding this flight."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Pros: "Delta planes are typically nice and clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times."
Pros: "People were great"
Cons: "Air vents and the side of aircraft felt like it was loose and falling off."
Pros: "Although boarding began late, it was efficient and we left on time."
Cons: "Even a 29 dollar Comfort Plus seat had very little legroom."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg space whatsoever. I'm 6'8 and am being told to keep my legs in while it is near impossible or I'm eating my legs. I became so uncomfortable I became nauseous. Anyone above 6'4 is having a rough flight."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "Got exit seats with extra leg room at no charge . Flight was quick and crew was very accomadating and friendly. Very good at providing updates and delays"
Pros: "Impeccable as usual"
Cons: "No tv on flight from Seattle to Los Angeles, I felt like I was flying United. That was the only thing that was extremely disappointing"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Smooth and on time boarding,early arrival, comfortable flight."
Pros: "Crew and landing were fantastic"
Pros: "Helpful, and kind"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta is the worst. Delta is awful. Don't fly Delta."
Cons: "I wouldn't know how our flight to Sioux Falls was. Delta left without us, after they made us late. We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
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: "Good selection of free, in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed on the runway, but that wasn't the airlines fault."
Pros: "Overall, the flight was very smooth and I thought the crew did a great job."
Cons: "I know this is a federal regulation, but I have to mention it as it is part of the boarding process. For the life of me, I can't understand why it is necessary to go through security again after re-entering the country. Understandable that I have to go through customs, but going through security again is ridiculous."
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Pros: "I had to take a United flight last week for a short flight and once again I was reminded why I ALWAYS fly Delta if at all possible. United crew hid in the galley the whole trip wit lititle to no interaction with passengers. My flight today on Delta was great; food really excellent (Chicken Tika) and the crew was great as usual. Delta remains the best."
Pros: "Who could ask for more?"
Pros: "Departing on time and clean"
Cons: "There was no screens, all the other airlines have screens, but that wasn't my problem and I got coloring book and crayons for me daughter, so she can play with them, but my issue was that when they gave snack to everyone and I didn't get anything and then I told the other flight attendant that I didn't get my snack and still she didn't get it, she said she was going to get it and didn't come back :(( I was really disappointed with that, they r old and forget things, so our line 19 nobody got anything .. i like delta was I wasn't happy this time with it"
Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."
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 ."
Pros: "Got grounded for five hours stuck on the plane."
Pros: "The attendants on flight were amazing! The flight was perfect! We arrived early!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Pros: "Flight and service were fine. Because there was a long delay, the ticket agents supplied free sandwiches, drinks, salads, and coloring books and tried to engage the waiting passengers with games. I won a $50 Delta gift certificate! The captain had good communication with the passengers to keep us informed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 1/2 hours because no crew was available."
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."

Cons: "5 flights cancelled, poor communication, total chaos in rebooking, lines 5 hrs long to get rebooked."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Cons: "The 2+ hour delay"
Cons: "The entertainment system was extremely difficult to deal with. The screen did not seem receptive to the human finger and often the menu lines were small and very close together, leading to the incorrect item being selected. Finally I gave up and was just trying to put on "my flight", but it just made me take survey after survey, instead of allowing me access to "my flight" information."
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: "Crew was great. Made it to destination 39 minutes earlier than expected"
Pros: "Yes, crew were great"
Cons: "Checkin was seamless. flight comfortable and pleasant. Unfortunately not much can be done about the worst part, which was total immigration disorganization on arrival at JFK. Coming from Rome which is a huge airport, it was shameful to see the difference. Sigh."

Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Free tv which is rare"
Cons: "I had selected my seats ahead of time and they weren’t kept. Day of I tried to buy a seat and it told me there were tech issues and I had to go to a front desk to check in/purchase. Well all that got me was the very last row, middle seat. No recline and seriously no leg room or breathing room once the person in the row ahead leans back. Crew was not helpful. Not to mention, the security line was outrageously long and I got to my flight just before it left only to find out my seating arrangement and be presented with more disappointment. Took over an hour where I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes in this airport (I fly often). Didn’t have time to go to BR or grab a snack Then my second flight was (again another middle seat) way too warm. The attendants said “there’s nothing we can do”. I was so nauseous and uncomfortable the whole time."

Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "CRJ900 is a small plane. no WiFi"
Pros: "Entertainment, courtesy, flight attendants, and service"
Cons: "Just being confined. But that's the nature of that beast"
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant and helpful. Baggage was broken but replaced with new one in Philadelphia."
Cons: "No entertainment options at all in this flight - system was down."
Cons: "You pay extra to get the TSA Full background check, so you can breeze through TSA, with PreCheck, yet this Airline has a problem with recognizing it. 3 phone calls layer and a Visit to their Costumer Serice Desk, and none of them can figure it out. Uhg again."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Some glitch said the flight was delayed, when it wasn't. Good thing I checked with the Check In Counter."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was on American Airlines 220, not a BA carrier. No power outlets. No Wi-Fi. No individual entertainment. Cramped seating in spite of paying a premium for improved seating. Lousy food. Flying to Hong Kong on AA was much better. Never again on AA to Europe."
Cons: "7 hours late with only 3-4 updates the whole time."
Pros: "Online check in scanning my phone and having my seat already picked out. Informative while on the flight and great spacing. Also like to know that there still is free carry ons allowed."

Cons: "Entertainment extremely poor."

Cons: "Left late, took more than 45 minutes for any baggage to get to the carousel. Not American's best work"
Pros: "plane was entirely too small for any hope of comfort will advise friends not to book a flight that includes American eagle, and will not use American in the future if I can avoid it."
Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "Lack of customer service for parents traveling with babies. Denied pre-board despite asking gate agent. Not kid-friendly."
Cons: "No individual tv screens seems a little ridiculous for a nonstop 5 hour flight"
Pros: "N/A flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and finally cancelled."
Pros: "Staff and customer service were great"
Pros: "That I at least had an aisle seat."
Cons: "I used to fly USAir all the time. The service was excellent. Following the merger, not so much anymore. The seat was very cramped. So much so that I had trouble walking when I got off the plane, and I'm in pretty good shape. I used to get upgraded often with USAir. Now that I have 3 times the mileage built up, it never happens. This wasn't the worst American flight , however. I recently had the displeasure of flying on one of the new planes, and that seat was so upright, cramped, and hard, it was like being on Spirit! (And I refuse to get on their planes ever again) my entire body was sore and stiff after flying on the new AA jet."
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "my first flight was delayed by 4 hours so I automatically missed my connection. i called american to reschedule my flight for the next day in order to spend the night at my house and not have ro ask for hotel, they said no problem. when I go to she counter to explain they said that they would put me on a later flight and that they where sure I would make it. when I arrived miami I had missed my connection and they did NOT cover the hotel expenses they rebooked me for the next day at 5pm. no food no hotel no nothing. the next day I arrived at the airport counter the people at the american airline's counter did not want to let me thorugh because I had a one way ticket... after explaining for over 25 minutes they let me go.... the miami gloght to Bermuda then was also delayed for a total of 2 hours and they changed gates 8 times from one end to thw other and so on.... the worst service ever........"
Cons: "4 hr. Layover"
