Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Maybe better snack"
Cons: "Crew could be on time for work so the flights aren’t delayed"
Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Free wine and spirits and food really not too bad in economy Very large movie and tv show library - something for everyone Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Overhead bins a bit small on this older 767-300"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very good. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Unpacking wet clothes from one of my bags. It must have been left out in the rain for some time. I filed a separate complaint with Delta."
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Plane boarded late, took off late, arrived late. Boarding was confusing and slow."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable no room to move"
Pros: "We landed safely - crew was nice enough."
Cons: "Heard one crewmember make snarky comment about another passenger (A stranger). Had to wait on the ground for about 30 min for 6 crewmembers that “needed” to be in MN. Yeah, that was awesome with a 2 yo and 4 yo..."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."
Pros: "All on time, the flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "That I couldn't change my seat (I didn't want in the confort zone) just in an empty row that it was behind me."
Cons: "No issues. Smooth ride. Decent service."
Pros: "Best Delta flight so far."
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"
Pros: "They went out of their way provide flight and status updates. Had to gate changes in Atlanta but they kept everybody informed."

Pros: "adjustable head rest is great - being given a pillow is great - the plane was not too cold to sleep either (as they often are)"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on."
Cons: "Space. Economy on a long flight is not ideal"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "The flight was very quick."
Cons: "They didn't serve us water."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Wifi never works. I wanted to charge my phone, but my outlets weren't working, either (my neighbor had no issues). Kinda sucked considering I was planning on working on my flight to New York. The AC was blasting humid air, so it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Distaff who is very friendly and accommodating."

Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "One crew member was running late. So we could not start boarding until she got there. Which created a chain reaction of events making the flight late. She was not a pilot. So why couldn't we begin boarding while waiting on her?"
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."

Cons: "Nothing. This has been the best flight experience I’ve ever had."
Cons: "Loved the flight however wished the food selection was better in business call. On the way to Mumbai the option and choice was better and tasted good. I was not impressed with selection and taste it could have been better."
Cons: "The plane was at the gate for almost 2 hours due to the fuel tanks - apparently the engineers didn't know which tanks were refueled. Sounded a bit weird. I bill at $800 per hour - I think I should be compensated for my time."
Cons: "Cabin crew bored."
Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."

Cons: "Down onevtoilet from get go was unfortunate but not a big deal until both toilets on our side were out.."
Pros: "Good schedules and reliable flights."
Cons: "Is there anything that America does poorly that the UK will not follow with? Does BA really wish to compete with Easyjet? No meals on a 3.5 hour flight? Extra payments for everything? Sorry, I will not fly Delta or United transatalantic because I have a choice. I guess I should switch back to Lufthansa or Swiss."
Cons: "As per above"
Cons: "No WIFI"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. They had no confirmation of the booking even though it had been done a month earlier.

Took almost 4 hrs to confirm that the flight had been paid for."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly, responsive, and helpful. They made sure we had timely service for all aspects of the trip."
Cons: "We were involuntarily downgraded from Business to economy for our 9 hour flight from London to Mumbai. Outside our party of 3 there was also another party of 3 in the same boat as us. It seems like British Airways is too aggressive with overbooking the higher end sections of the flight, which seem much less likely to have people 'no-show' (either because it's for work or because they've spent so much for the tickets)."
Pros: "Everything was absolutely spot on except for larger than average people not being catered for."

Cons: "My wife didn't able to travel. She is on h4 visa and when we tried to checkin at airport staff said she can't travel because she doesn't have valod visa in her passport for us. I tried to explain to staff that her h4 visa is her us visa but didn't accept. I have no problem with uk policy but atleast britiah airways should let is know when we booked ticket that you need visa on your passport. I will never ever travel through british airways."
Cons: "My suitcase got stuck in London, now I have to chase it..."
Pros: "The 787s are super spacious!! Economy class never felt so good."
Pros: "The crew was great & the food was great too. Service was excellent, very friendly. Managed to get a window seat. It was perfect, a little cozy nook of my own. The 787 had only 7 seats in a row, the configuration was better, more comfortable."

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the turbulence, but there's nothing hat can be done about that."
Cons: "Even though it was Finnair it was quite difficult to get my boarding passes and was unable to choose the seats on my long flight. I had to get my boarding passes through American Airlines and then flew through British Airways. It would have been very frustrating/difficult to a new traveler. The flights themselves were very good, they were accommodating and was able to move my seat for me in JFK, the flight with British Airways was good."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Comfortable. Great flight attendants"
Pros: "flight was on time. Checking in was easy, and well directed. As for entertainment, plenty of new release movies to view."

Pros: "Up and down in all the right places and we were on time."
Cons: "Food was unimpressive to say the least. And the entertainment system was awful, the movie would frequently stop and was pixilated. Weird for a new 777."
Pros: "Everything was organised.Didn't even waste a minute.I should say excellent service being my first trip withBA"
Pros: "It was a short flight, so didn't need much."
Cons: "Charged for food, even water. Boarding pass had one gate, but flight actually boarded from a different gate. No one there to tell us, no announcement. Good thing I checked board. No entertainment system."
