Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."

Pros: "Entertainment on short flights is a nice surprise"
Cons: "Very very late.. I almost lost my replacement of the replacement of my connection. Had to run like hell. The luggage didn't make it. To summarize the day, woke up too early, got to my destination hours late and got the luggage in the middle of the night."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Long delay with vague explanations why."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Cons: "Better ? Impossible!"
Cons: "There was a mechanical delay and I ended up missing my flight. Even though I arrived 10 minutes prior to departure."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Delayed and then arrived at airport and sat on tarmac for too long waiting for clearance to go to gate"
Pros: "Boarding was on time; flight departures on time and arrived earlier than expected! Pilot told us exactly what was the status and gave us updates; cabin was well air conditioned; flight attendants were friendly; bags came out very quick! Very nice flight"
Pros: "Flight turned out great... but I got lucky!!! Got a seat I wanted... now praying the same occurs on return trip"
Cons: "Not being able to assign my seat until I got to the gate!! Terrifying not to be able to choose seat fir such a long flight!!! Do not ever want to be in this situation again!!!"
Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect and most of all ON TIME Thank you Delta!"
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Pros: "The flight is short and easy."
Cons: "I always try to purchase an aisle seat. I feel like there is more room and I don’t feel trapped against a window. This flight a man with very broad shoulders sat in the middle seat. I felt like he should have paid for half my ticket since he sat in half my seat. Thankfully the flight is short. Had it been my second flight I would have been quite upset."
Pros: "Quick, efficient, affordable!"
Pros: "Attendants very friendly and helpful. Greeted everyone with a smile and a pleasant voice. One woman was having a very hard time. She evidently was afraid to fly and wanted to get off the plane. The attendants were very kind to her, spent time with her and informed the pilot. The pilot made several comments using her name making sure she knew every time we were about to run into some turbulence. I thought that was very kind."
Cons: "Sometimes very hard to hear the instructions and the pilot when they are speaking. Snacks are very small quantity and often stale"
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "On time departure, actually got to Cabo early."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine had a broken reclining lock mechanism and the passenger kept trying to switch from recline to sitting up and it wouldn't latch in the upright position, so he kept jerking the seatback up and down for the entire 4 hour flight. Also the rows were so tight, and seatbacks were so close together, that the reclining seat in front of me was 6 inches from my face."
Pros: "Not much . The boarding process took forever and the lines through TSA took longer .. no direction to lines and I was standing for 10 min before saying something to someone and they said o there’s another line."
Cons: "Almost everything besides the staff on the plane"
Pros: "Plane nice and comfortable"
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "That the planes flew and i met my connections and arrived home."
Cons: "Below average crew with little to no interest in doing anything but getting the flight over. Cool, and perhaps lazy or tired. We were told there was not good offered on the flight because it was not long enough. Minneapolis to Spokane - seriously????5 days earlier on same flight there was full food offerings. Audio quality and ear bugs are barely useable. Very difficult to hear any of the spoken words of the movie and I have good hearing."
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "Liked choice of Biscuit, almonds or pretzel"
Cons: "I used mobile checking and did not get seat assignment till Boarding started"
Pros: "Besides the 30 minute delay, the flight itself was painless. Avoided the traffic jam of having to drive through Hurricane traffic."
Cons: "Delay caused me late for work."
Pros: "I'll chalk it up to the insanely high travel demands coincident with Labor Day."
Pros: "The food was excellent, as well as the flight attendants."

Cons: "Delayed and crews attitude. Also being seated next to someone when the plain is half empty"
Pros: "Friendly staff. They went above and beyond to accommodate me whenni arrived late for boarding."
Cons: "The handle on my checked bag was broken when I got it at immigration. Not sure why they pulled out the handle since it was retracted when checked in."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Overbooking flights"
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
