Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Original flight changed- had me arriving after second flight took off. Delta didn’t fix it. Spent 5 hours changing it. Rebooked flight was delayed- they rebooked to the next day at the last minute then, got me out same night but 3 Hours from my original airport."
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Cons: "Way too cramped"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Messed up my luggage in Atlanta. Gate said baggage was going to domestic. Ended up in international terminal. Added almost an hour of back and forth between terminals."
Pros: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Good experience"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being on time. Trapped in plane for 2 hours"
Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"
Pros: "Clean plane. Excellent service flt DL0295 our flight attendant (Nancy, sorry didn’t get her last name) was fantastic."
Pros: "We eventually got to Atlanta."
Cons: "Delta is flying a lot of commuter planes, which are pretty cramped. We usually fly first class, and the seating is essentially the same as what coach used to be. There's nothing "first class" about it. And of course, the flight was hours late."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Delayed departure due to late crew arrival. Not a huge deal."
Pros: "Zee was our flight attendant and she was absolutely wonderful. Personable, attentive, and she made sure each and every person on the plane was comfortable and happy, going so far as to move solo passengers to empty rows so they could have more space. I wish she could be on every flight I take."
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."
Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."
Pros: "Staff are adept at dealing with these issues but it is a systemic problem."
Cons: "Rather than pay luggage fees, people are bringing on their luggage and the flight ALWAYS runs out of space. Suitcases are being moved around right at people heads and more than once I've been hit and seen other people be hit in the head by a suitcase. Getting luggage in place used to be a simple and minor issue, now it occupies much of the time, energy, and attention of the cabin crew as well as the gate crew. I realize this is making money for Delta but the cost is being paid by people being hit in the head with luggage and the crew's unavailability to deal with other issues."
Pros: "Take off on time, arrived early, pleasant flight attendant"
Cons: "Had to sit on tarmac after arriving early"
Pros: "All things connected to the flight were just right"
Cons: "Nothing was an issue."
Pros: "Quick and easy."
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."
Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."
Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"
Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."
Pros: "Delta....ticket counter...gate agents....flight attendants....pilots...amazing customer service with a smile! Very attentive and everyone thanked me ( and other passengers as well for flying with Delta."

Cons: "I slept all the way, so can’t say whether anything went wrong with the flight."
Cons: "Not much to read"
Pros: "everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet"

Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Atlanta was 2:30 min Left at 6:10 arrive at 8:30 roughly Tried twice to get to my connection earlier and get 9:30 instead of 12:09 fligth to Daytona Delta was not flexible to allow me to book saying i did not have 55 min in between fligth which i had than lear n it will cost $75.00 to change the fligth - What? Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"
Cons: "A very large, unfriendly person was taking up half of my seat."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 2+ hours, Delta (running the flight for westjet) sent 1 email about the flight being delayed to 4:45 which was inconsistent with the gate signage and agent who said 3:45, flight ended up leaving at 5:45PM. No reasons were provided beyond the incoming flight from LGA hadn't come in. Why hadn't it come in? When could we expect to leave YUL? No answers."
Pros: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"
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."
Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"
Cons: "Seats are very small."
Pros: "For coach the flight was comfortable. Had enough leg room but 8 hours on a plane is taxing under the best circumstances."
Cons: "The attendants were professional but didn't seem to find any joy in their work. The food was barely passable."
Cons: "A bit cold on the flights and the first two legs of the flight you had pay for blankets."
Pros: "Excellent service in business class: attentive, cordial, not intrusive."
Pros: "nothing special."
Cons: "nothing horrible."
Cons: "Late flight No communication Had done pre register to sit with father. They changed his seat upon boarding."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Bad food, no entertainment. Uncomfortable plane"
Pros: "Plenty of room in economy for my 6'3" frame, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Everything was great - more selection on the movies/tv would be a plus"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Flight was cold, movie and tv choices were poor."
Pros: "The food was phenomenal for airplane food, the best I've had in 100s of flights! The flight was half empty, so taking over 3 seats to lie down was nice :) Very efficient boarding process at the Montreal airport, with updated wait times and fast moving line."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "This was a +10 hour trans Atlantic flight. We walked on and immediately noticed there were no TV screens. I expected that the crew would be handing out portable screens instead which would have been ok but pretty inconvenient. This was not the case. We asked the crew and were told that to have entertainment for the flight we would have to download the Air Canada flight into our OWN devices and connect to the airplane wifi. They also explained that you can't download the app while connected to the airplane wifi so anyone who wanted entertainment had to scramble to download the app while we were still on the ground and Use cellular data! at this point 300 people were either panicking because they didn't have a personal device with them, didn't have a charger for their device and so would have power issues or were forced to use up roaming data because they had non Canadian phone plans!!! At the very least staff should have told passengers about this setup while they were waiting at the gate, so that people would have time to download the app with airport wifi! add to all this the fact that the app was extremely low quality and the options for movies/show were disappointingly dated and limited. This was not officially a cheap low cost flight for my family but the service we got certainly would categorize it as such. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Une catastrophe à tous les niveaux"
Cons: "No room. Cramped, impossible to sleep on an overseas flight"
Cons: "They opened my bag and took staff out of it"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "I thought the crew was nice, and I was glad to have an easy flight."
Cons: "I thought it was a bit odd to not be given a seat assignment until after zones 1, 2, and 3 had been boarded. It seemed like the other passengers and myself who needed assignments had been forgotten about."
Cons: "Organisation wasn't good..they asked us to board the plane and then said they weren't ready then took them 1.3 hrs to fly oit of the airport . The flight attendant were rude..all of them."
Pros: "We flew to Toronto on the rebooked flight and we were treated very badly by the gate agent who simply told us: Go see customer service, you are not on this flight' without even an attempt to explain why we could not get on to the flight to London. I think they do not respect their customers. Very disappointed with Air Canada' service."
Cons: "Nothing about our trip to London on Air Canada was positive. We had requested vegetarian meals for all our flights. They did not provide us any food on the flight because they did not have our names on the list for Vegetarian meals on the rebooked flight. Our experience with Air Canada was everything that is the worst in airline travel and customer service."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Decent crew. Decent collection of movies."
Cons: "Overall, this flight service from Montreal for Los Angeles (6 hrs flight) service was worse than the interconnection flight I have experienced in Europe (2 hrs flight). There is no snack provided on this journey and you have to pay for everything (snacks and even the headphones). On the European flights, the snack was provided multiple times for short duration of the flight."
Pros: "Flight went fine - we got where we needed to get"
Cons: "Very cramped and fairly uncomfortable. Boarding was a free-for-all."
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "Great service, staff very pleasant!"
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nice to have free entreteinment"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "AC lost baggage"
Pros: "Everything was quick and efficient in boarding and replanting, the captains spoke to us to tell us what was going on. Food was good."
Cons: "My tv screen was broken, meal service was pretty late and drinks were not served before, as a result the lights were only off in the flight for a very brief while."
Pros: "Nothing except the plane was able to fly!"
Cons: "Old plane: Old seats No entertainment screens need to rent a mobile device -> this is sooo out of touch with reality of standard flights that it is even embarrassing to mention or to write it! BTW: My fellow flight companions did make fun of this during the entire flight! Not good."
Pros: "Alles goed"
Pros: "Good travel, pretty comfortable flight with Air Canada"
Cons: "Not the most amazing meal but well, not too bad for a plane meal."
Cons: "Unhelpful crew,dreadful entertainment and dire food!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room and was able to board early"
Cons: "Food not good"
Pros: "tout était bien - very good"
Cons: "all was good"
Cons: "not even peanuts included on a 6h flight is remarkable"
Pros: "This plane had entertainment on each seat and seats were more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "The plane was full and was running out of over head storage for people sitting toward the back and people already seated were being very rude about us slightly moving their bags to try to fit in ours. Some angry Spaniards were litterslly shouting at us for us moving their luggage a few inches at best! No help from the plane crew on this matter. They should really arrange boarding from both ends."
Pros: "I liked the flight"
Cons: "There was no space around your seats No free food or snacks offered, just soft drinks No big screens for watching movies Not enough bathrooms"
Pros: "I liked the airport design at Montreal."
Cons: "the whole process in Montreal seemed cold. Not really friendly compared to our domestic flight from Los Angeles to Montreal. The crew weren't very friendly at all. It's as if we were bothering them to ask a question or for them to give a smile once in a while."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Professional and attentive."
Cons: "The only real complaint I had was the over head compartment was much too high and I was too short to reach."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The fact that you will have to travel almost 10 hours with absolutely no entertainment tv music etc. Not even a video on an era when Airlines should offer this as a standard. That was bad. Really bad"
Cons: "Airplane quality Seat dimensions Food quality Allowing passengers to sit where they pleased Dysfunctional entertainment system"
Cons: "put on stand by, while this was a non required stop over to Brussels."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Food, seating and entertainment was poor overall. No tvs/ entertainment of any sort"
Pros: "Same. I was well taken care of despite the weather delay. Crew was friendly but more stressed and a little slow. Seats were comfortable and there was more leg room than normal."
Cons: "Not enough time with the lights off so we could sleep easier during the long flight."
Cons: "Needed subtitles on movies"
Pros: "The flight was on time and that is something really important to me. There was really no complaints about this flight"
Cons: "My headsets weren't working but it was a really minor problem."
Cons: "The service"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "In flight entertainment wasn't working on my seat."
Cons: "No food on a five hour flight. Had to buy food this is nickeling and dimming people. They made me miss my connecting flight we sat around in tarmack and no explanation given."
Cons: "My sister is still stuck in Paris after she was rerouted there from Toronto to catch a Royal Air Maroc flight. The air canada office closed and the phone line people have failed to ensure that her ticket was paid for so she's been stuck for two days in Paris and traveling a total of three days!!"
