Cons: "A 7+ hour delay!"
Pros: "I love flying Delta. Non stop flights from DTW to MCO and FLL. The crew are so courteous. Love the new uniforms also."
Cons: "Both Virgin plans needed a deep cleaning."
Cons: "Delta’s computer system was down. Long wait at the counter even though I did web check-in."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight! Great movies, good food and I was comfortable. Nothing like First Class."
Cons: "Crew was pretty short with everyone and not Delta’s best - not sure what the story was. Gate staff were allowing people to cut queue lines left and right - why even have the zones lined up if not going to enforce?"
Pros: "Entertainment system great. Individual choices include recent movies. On board staff very nice"
Cons: "We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag."
Cons: "Bought a brand new suitcase and Delta staff broke one of the wheels!"
Pros: "Every thing good"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "I like that Delta is efficient and the service is consistent. I pick Delta because I know what I’m going to get . I like that I can choose the entertainment I want and that everything is at my fingertips including flight info, food and beverage options, etc. it’s relatively comfortable but it’s not near the level of Virgin America or JetBlue."
Cons: "I’m not sure if it is due to LAX construction but it is chaotic at the airport. It is super confusing where you need to go, drop bags, etc. the weird part is Check in was in terminal 3 and gate at terminal 2. That is a long walk back and forth. There is probably a more efficient way of doing this. Besides that, they need to do a better job communicating that seats are changing and not Reggy before boarding. Though I can understand it can get crazy because people will panic but it’s not great heading up to enter in not knowing if you are sitting in window when you picked it for a reason. Otherwise, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "My toddler daughter became ill before departure and the crew was awful. They failed to provide me with hardly anything besides 2 blankets and a few remoistened hand wipes to clean up vomit and was very rude when I asked to change seats, even though there were at least 8 other seats open on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process doesn't make sense. My seat assignment was changed for no reason, and I didn't have a say in it. I was put further back on the plane. Not happy about that."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Flight was smooth. Boarding process was good. On time."
Cons: "Plane was old. Not that comfortable. No entertainment on flight. Unable to connect to wifi. Snack options were not that good."

Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "I fly Delta Airlines 2x a year and if I had to go on this flight experience alone I would never fly with them again. This particular flight attendant. Brunette who wore all red~ like she had a personal conflict with us from the moment we walked on the plane. We were sitting in the back and could hear the things that she was saying about my grandson and myself. She was rude, snotty, had a sassy mouth. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED as to the way we were treated by her. It was a long flight to have someone you felt was bullying you the whole flight to the moment we were exiting the plane. Karma will come back to her one day..."

They did offer headphones for those that wanted/needed then for the inflight movie, once again included with the price of the flight."

However, the airline informed me on check-in in Medellin that I would not be able to continue to my final destination of San Jose, Costa Rica because I did not have a yellow fever card.
