Airline reviews

Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."

Cons: "Always need more room"

Cons: "Crying baby"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The wait"
Cons: "The screen didn’t change in time"

Pros: "Excellent check in and boarding service"
Cons: "Cleaning of the airplane could be done better"

Pros: "I have no complaints. Not on"

Pros: "Friendly"

Pros: "Timely, clean"
Cons: "A little chaotic at boarding time"

Pros: "Everything is good except our lunch as described below."
Cons: "They ran out of chicken breast in our lunch packages, so the stewardess went back to get it. After 10 minutes she still did not show up, we turned on the help light, and still no one came. Finally she passed by and we reminded her the 2 chicken breast lunch packs, she said : "Sorry, I've forgotten about them" and ran back to get them for us."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."

Pros: "The food and the service"

Pros: "Always nice to be on an American plane out of an American airport.....SO much more professional. :))"

Pros: "After being redirected and behind on travel plans due to weather and missed flights this was a welcomed relief. Everything went as planned and staff was very helpful."

Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."

Cons: "Everything was on time, but we had to sit on tje runway for more that 30 mins which made us late all around. But aside from that everything feom Delta from dropping of bags to Landing in Miami was perfect."

Pros: "Friendly and cleanliness."
Cons: "Cold drinks were warm."

Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."

Cons: "This is possibly the worst airplane food ive ever had. Ever. The chicken didn't look nor taste like chicken and it was in some weird green chickpea sauce?? Very unpleasant."

Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"

Pros: "Enjoy able"
Cons: "Noise"

Pros: "Really liked the plan"

Pros: "Everything up to departure. Sat in line for almost an hour."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Didn't know you could get complimentary meals anymore! The movie selection was awesome too!"

Pros: "Movies- pro staff"

Pros: "The two ladies who were initially boarding passengers were excellent. They had wonderful people skills, were smiling, and extremely personable. I loved the interaction."

Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"

Cons: "Over an hour late."

Cons: "Cramped seats, AC blasting and constant sting breeze. Food and service awful."

Cons: "The fact that one could not book either an aisle or a window without paying significant sums is ridiculous - an additional $74 for a window seat and some were considerably more than that."

Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."

Pros: "Friendly staff."

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Food is horrible at AA, in special breakfast!"

Cons: "Too little room for legs and cabin was colder than usual."
