Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"

Pros: "Super friendly staff, great service and delicious food. The competition has nothing compared to Delta. We’re switching"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The flight didn’t leave on time because the plane wasn’t ready for takeoff (the engines had to be warmed up... WHY would that not be ready when it was time?!) so we left 30 minutes late, didn’t make up any lost time at all in the air and we ended up missing our connecting flight because of it all."

Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."

Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"

Cons: "It was great"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Just better food"

Pros: "Good crew, good service."
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."

Pros: "see above"

Pros: "We eventually arrived"
Cons: "Then, in Atlanta, the flight was delayed 3-4 times, and our departure was more than an hour late. Overall, not one to be proud of, Delta"

Pros: "Preboarded and all went smooth and quick"

Pros: "Terrific service."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "Delay messed up our entire trip to Atlanta."

Pros: "After a delay of over 1 1/2 due to weather, we boarded and then waited for luggage. Then our pilot said our weight was too high so we sat and burned off fuel, which delayed us a half hour."
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."

Pros: "I used up my battery thinking it’d be ok since most planes have charging areas...to my surprise, none at all was available"
Cons: "No tv screens in each seat..."

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: "Timely, organized, polite staff and pilots. Delta gets 5 stars all around."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working but we were informed so not really a negative just an observation."

Pros: "Made the best of a overcrowded messy airport"

Pros: "Great. Love first class whenever price allows."

Pros: "The gate agent for this flight was a terrific multi-tasker. He was the only one at the gate managing both the incoming flight and my outgoing flight and he handled everything so efficiently, and with patience for customers' questions. He represented Delta very well."

Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."
Cons: "That I was going to be charged $125 for oversized luggage unti"

Pros: "Great service, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Waited 45 minutes for de-icing"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"

Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."

Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."

Cons: "2 hr delay"

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twelve hours and was not given any compensation even though i had to stay the night at the airport with no blanket or pillow and no freebies of any sort. The gates kept changing. I got up to move to the correct gate at least four times during the night. The next mornings flight was behind schedule as well. I want compensation for my poor delta experience."

Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."

Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"

Pros: "My comfort zone seat"

Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"

Cons: "Cabin service interrupted by turbulent weather."

Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"

Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."

Pros: "Left on time... Arrived 10 mins early. comfy plane. Pleasant help."

Pros: "The costumer services."
Cons: "N\A"

Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."

Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."

Pros: "Helpful attendants and speedy boarding."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."

Cons: "See above description"

Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."

Pros: "A woman who spoke no English or French was seated next to me last minute with a baby who cried the whole flight. The woman hit me several times, waking me up, while trying to get the baby to stop crying. Talk about a red eye"
Cons: "Would have appreciated a bit more help from the cabin crew"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Good price. Upgraded to comfort seating without charge since I'm a Delta sky priority flier"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable."

Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."

Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."

Pros: "It is good"

Cons: "No tv on seat. Those dumb comedy tv show"

Pros: "How spacious it felt and there were film selections"
Cons: "My film kept stopping randomly."

Pros: "at least flights were on time. 20 minutes delay is not bad."

Pros: "Nothing."

Pros: "It was very inexpensive and on time. And it was much more comfortable than those budget airlines like Spirit, Frontier, etc."

Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"

Pros: "To be honest nothing"

Pros: "After the delay, we were treated to complimentary soft drinks and snack mix. This was after sitting in the plane for over an hour, though."
Cons: "We spent two hours of the delay in the airport and then eventually boarded. However, another problem with the plane developed and we waited for at least an hour more in the incredibly cramped plane. The seats are bearable for a short flight, but they’re hard to endure with multiple delays. The boarding was also disorganized. There were two announcements: one for people who needed extra time to board and another for the final call. Nothing in between."

They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."

Pros: "Price of flight and it was non stop to Fort Wayne, IN."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 60 mins, no explanation given. We flew in a Sun Country Plane instead of an Alliegiant plane. Sun Country had more leg room and free non alcoholic drinks. So it was worth the delay and plane change. Made it safety to Fort Wayne."

Arrived at the airport 2 hours early per their instructions to find the flight was delayed. Thirty minutes later they cancelled the flight and then provided no information concerning the new flight the following day."

Cons: "I moved my seat when I checked in to sit with a friend and paid about ten bucks for a different seat. I didn't think much of it until I got to my new seat and realized I had paid to sit in a seat that was basically a bench that didn't recline and was right in front of the bathroom so it rattled every time someone flushed. Classy."

Pros: "It was fairly clean and the flight wasn't crowded."
Cons: "Flight boarded late, $2 charge for water (and it's not even good water), and no free carry on."

Cons: "That you guys so tight that would not even offer free water....."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic as always and put people at ease even in the midst of a pandemic."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very tight. Not food except snack."

Pros: "Plane was on time and even landed early"
Cons: "The gentleman sitting next to me held his duffle bag on his lap the whole flight. Take off and landing included. Take off I thought no big deal, but when it was time to land the flight attendant actually looked right at him and said nothing.. When I put my tray down, there was sugar and coffee stains on it. Luckily, I had a wet wipe to wipe it off. The attendants were not very friendly and I was disappointed with them. It just seemed like they were in a hurry. Note this was my flight from Omaha to Chicago. NOT the connecting flight Ord-DCA."

Pros: "It was a typical flight."
Cons: "The screen/ video entertainment system was broken and the flight attendant was rude about it."

Pros: "Helpful crew"

Pros: "The United staff I interacted with were some of the friendliest people I'd worked with all day."

I called and someone got my onto an earlier flight, but when we showed up at the gate, we found out she hadn't finished the transaction and now there weren't enough seats for us. We were supposed to land in RIC by 2, but by the time we got a flight (which was again delayed), it was almost 10pm. The only helpful person I dealt with was John, who took my call to get us on another flight."

Pros: "View out the window"

Cons: "Delayed at Chicago for 8 hours before they canceled the flight. It was beautiful & Sunny in both Chicago (depart) & Omaha (arrive) all day. The flight was most likely canceled because of an incoming flight that never arrived. Stayed at hotel on my own dime after wasting an entire day. Completely unacceptable and will never use airline for this route again."

Pros: "The crew members were friendly and efficient."

Pros: "I always appreciate a nice smooth landing."
Cons: "The caramel wafer served with the beverage in flight."

Pros: "Just noticed survey on my flight from Omaha to Chicago. Sadly I woke up to find that that flight was cancelled and I had to reschedule and flown to Denver instead."
Cons: "The stewardess wasn't the least bit helpful. I did not see any friendliness on her part to anyway. It was like she had to do the job but didn't like being there. So very weird. My original flight to Milwaukee with stop in Chicago was cancelled. This was a flight that took me to Denver and then Milwaukee. Therefore cold for over two hours. Not a good experience with United."
