Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was great. Was told they don’t feel they can do a good job of serving 48 passengers in Premium Select with 2 crew."
Cons: "Image recognition step slowed boarding down a lot. Food and amenities on Delta Premium Select seem to be getting worse"
Pros: "Fast service and precise timing"
Pros: "Great comfortable seats"
Cons: "Crowds in airport"
Pros: "Comfort is excellent"
Cons: "When traveling with the pet, personally always travel to Puerto Rico, we take our cat, I would like Delta to have the option of making the reservation online until paying for it, although you should always call to confirm, that would be super excellent."
Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."
Pros: "Clean plane. On time"
Cons: "They have to improve the boarding process a bit."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "Flights were both timely"
Cons: "WiFi on flight from Atl to Tallahassee wasn’t working at first"

Pros: "On flight entertainment was very good. Flight was smooth and ran ahead of schedule."
Cons: "They were out of vegetarian meal options. Really poor for a six hour flight. Also, the family behind us was atrocious, but that’s not Delta’s fault."
Cons: "Was refused to use the 1st clas restrooms but 10 minutes layer the flight attendant allowed an older gentleman and a lady to use them. I was in 10A with my service dog"

Cons: "Bigger personal space"
Cons: "No room to move very cramped"
Pros: "Excelent flight excelent service.."
Cons: "The entrance in the gate to the plane always disorganized"
Pros: "My flight from STX was delayed some 30 minutes. That made a dent in the 57 minutes I had to catch my Delta flight. Naturally we landed at gate A2 and Delta was boarding at Terminal 2 gate B9. Me with my knee replacement can’t run and my wheelchair was not in sight. Thank goodness I had a carryon with wheels. I was out of breath when I got to Delta and the last passengers were boarding. I started panicking and interrupted the ground steward who asked me to wait with a smile. I waited . So when I told them I was standby they waved me on after showing my passport. I couldn’t find my boarding pass. I was pleasantly surprised to get a seat in first class. I was so thankful. My first time. Good things come to those who wait! Thank you Delta."
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn’t working"
Pros: "I like the fact that entertainment and technology is always good."
Cons: "Boarding is always a horrible experience. I never know what zone is boarding. Your agents at the gates are overwhelmed with so many things."

Cons: "The AC was blasting at an all time high, felt frozen to my seat, even asked for a blanket but “ they didn’t have any more “, had to tuck in my arms into my layered shirt. this was a morning flight and no breakfast was served ... they didn’t even have food available for purchase."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Cons: "Flight delay 5+ hours poor Service"
Cons: "The bulkhead sears had no electrical outlet"
Pros: "Easy to board."
Cons: "Delayed due to weather."
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."
Cons: "Cancel my flight at 7:50 am to 1:50pm"
Pros: "Wi-FI available (although I didn't use it)"

Pros: "No hubo retraso y salió todo el vuelo a tiempo. El personal fue atento."
Cons: "El espacio entre asientos es mínimo y es súper incómodo. La experiencia fue de incomodidad."
Pros: "In flight entertainment interface and options were great!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable!! Spent the entire flight with my knees pressed against the seat pocket. One flight attendant was somewhat rude and unpleasant."
Cons: "I don't know why delta's service has deteriorated so much in the last few years. Last two times that I flew the service and attitude at the gate has been horrible. Seat assignment has become a dread. Upgrade options are over priced. I guess I will be looking for a new airline."
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"
Cons: "Headphones suck"
Pros: "The plane was surprisingly comfortable. The seats had USB ports. The touch screens were clear and responsive. Most importantly, the service of the flight attendants was excellent. I was quite happy."
Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."
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: "The onboard entertainment system was awesome.seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was a bit bumpy."

Pros: "Better costumer service !"
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Social Distancing"

Cons: "I don't like the seats, they have no cushion and they don't recline. Plus the tray table is super small. Also you pay for all drinks. Another thing the pressure is horrible in these planes. It seems they try to cut down on cost so the cabin is not pressurized right to reduced your ears from getting the over pressure from the ascend and descent of the plane."
Pros: "The crew personnel aboard the plane was friendly and the seats confortable."
Cons: "They made me pay $45 for a 16 inches carry on back that I have as my only luggage , because according to the counter employee, my handbag (purse) was too big so it was considered as a second carry on.
