Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "The flight was safe and efficient."
Cons: "The seats on the 787 Dreamliner proved to be uncomfortable AGAIN this trip. 2 years ago we flew the 787 overnight and the seats were the same. Hard cushions, tight seat pitch, and little room to move about."
Pros: "Delayed, packed, bought a sandwich! Good sandwiches!"
Cons: "Packed and delayed"
Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Don’t wait to much"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, huge inconvenience"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Everything it’s perfect"
Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."
Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived on schedule just as it should be."
Pros: "Quick flight"

Cons: "Hot cabin"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "We boarded late, then sat in a hot plane for an ester 30-40 mins because the route got cancelled. They wouldn’t serve us beverages while it was so hot inside. We landed over 49 mins later into Lax"
Pros: "What I liked was getting to my house."
Cons: "The air-conditioning was extremely cold; on the positive side, I was given a blanket. The plane did not have any kind of tv screen in which to watch films or programs. Space was unbelievably tight between seats and rows; I cannot imagine a horizontally or vertically big person having any level of comfort. In general, the service was quite poor, making me wonder how does Delta treat the flight attendants, for they seemed tired and careless. The above did not happen in any of my other flights: Atlanta-Guadalajara, Guadalajara-CDMX, CDMX-Atlanta."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "Generally everything went smoothly on this leg of my trip."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"
Cons: "Felt agents held me back at the check-in counter resulting in me missing my initial flight and voiding my complete routing. Had to fly on a flight 7hrs after my booked flight because Delta had no other option (very untrue as there were other airlines flying to my final destination. Delta just didn't bother providing good customer service"
Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."
Cons: "Late, slow, de-icing in Detroit took nearly an hour!"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly and the plane was half empty."
Cons: "When are the Airlines going to start serving a decent coffee on board? It does not matter Delta is now serving Starbucks. Something they do that messes up the whole thing, probably overheat for too long."
Cons: "My suitcase was ruined."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "We finally got home"
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Flight is what we have come to think of as okay because nothing hurts"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."

Pros: "entertainment services"
Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "The airport crew at the check-in desk was rude"
Pros: "the majority of delta flights i've taken over the past few years have had huge issues - either long delays or cancellations. i won't be flying Delta again"
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Loved the onboard entertainment and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "I travelled w/ one adult and two infants internationally and could not book the infants' tickets online had to do it over the phone. When we got to the airport we had to pay $255 for 5 bags, that's almost another ticket."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent! Very attentive to passenger needs and wants"
Cons: "The seats are just economy seats with the middle seat left open"
Pros: "Westjet's employees were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Delta told us we were flying out on a Delta flight, and gave us a Delta flight number. In reality it had placed us on a Westjet flight without telling us, and we had no idea we were to check in with a different airline. And because Delta unilaterally changed our flight time without telling Westjet, we were unable to check in online and were later told that we were booked on the wrong flight by Delta. Delta's communications with us and with Westjet were deplorable."
Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, free entertainment, choice of free snack with our drink, free extra serving of complementary coffee, and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing in this experience"
Pros: "Ticket price in coach was good. Lots of available flights. Legroom was much better than expected. Service very good."
Cons: "Wifi is not free and expensive. Not enough pricing options and costs more if you don't buy a plan before the flight."
