Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Always a good ride."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I don't like paying top dollar and then have my flights changed to give me longer layovers."
Cons: "For any flight lasting over an hour, passengers should be allotted ample leg room and space. The couple in front of us reclined their seats for the whole flight and left us with little room. Airlines are also nickel and diming the passengers every which way by making you pay for a tablet rental to watch a movie."
Pros: "On-line system"
Cons: "Need to sort out leaving bag if you've checked in on line and printed your own boarding pass. Need to sort out organization of gate boarding, too much a free-for-all. Need to get staff that seem happy to guide you into the plane not grumpy."

Pros: "Blanket and pillow a nice touch"
Cons: "No dinner. And no free entertainment during the flight"
Cons: "Their claim to be the only airline still serving a meal is very "thin". We got a tiny cup of fruit and a biscuit with a piece of cheese melted on it. That was tasteless and very hard to eat. The one cup of juice (that was mostly ice) was barely enough to wash it down. Also, my disabled wife was not allowed to have the bulkhead seat because it had previously been assigned to a completely healthy child and mother. there should be some kind of priority system for those seats."
Pros: "A great lunch was provided. Very reasonable upgrade for 6 inches of extra leg room Early departure"
Pros: "Check in very fastly"
Pros: "Crew, plane, seats, leg room"
Cons: "Didn't have any soda"

Cons: "I would have liked an "oldies" channel on the music program. I'm 70. (:"
Pros: "Had a late departure from Honolulu because of an equipment repair, but the flight itself was fairly smooth and we were were grateful to have a bit of extra room on the plane because several nearby seats were not occupied. Luggage was delivered perfectly on-time upon arrival at LAX - thank you! Really appreciated the excellent customer service offered by Hawaiian Air prior to this trip, when one of the flights had to be rescheduled because of illness. Representatives were efficient, polite, and very understanding - Kudos to this carrier!"
Cons: "The touch-screen "display" was not so convenient to operate and seemed a bit archaic in style. Our outbound flight had been filled to capacity and was very unpleasant re long lines for the restrooms - but this return-segment of the trip was not crowded at all and presented a wonderful contrast."
Pros: "It was a long 12h flight from NY to HI, I requested change of seat. They arranged it so so got one in empty row since I were by myself. Food is good too!"

Pros: "The crew’s positive energy and great service were truly amazing. Kudos Delta!"
Pros: "Comfort plus is a nice upgrade"
Cons: "Having a clear gate to take advantage of being early."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Cons: "Delays both in DETROIT and a huge delay in Shanghai."
Cons: "We had a delay to boarding due to a mechanical issue. THANK YOU for making quick turn around decisions (ie, put us on another plane at another gate) - rather than just piling on delays!"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "If you could figure out how to get online wifi..."
Pros: "Late as usual"

Pros: "Staff tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't change flights on the day of travel"
Pros: "Excellent seat assignment good leg room plane on time staff friendly"
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"

Pros: "Flew in First Class. Felt very pampered"
Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Cons: "The airplane was freezing cold. I had on a sweater and jacket and was unbearably cold. The entire plane was miserable. There weren’t any blankets either...this is not the"
Pros: "The flight attendants were incredible the flight was great the movies for good great for our flight"
Pros: "On Tim and friendly"
Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."
Cons: "Flight overbooked and the gate paid no attention to how many bags were being brought onboard. Was forced to check my carry on. I hope it arrived."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"
Pros: "Everything was great. Staff were friendly and courteous, I only had one problem but even that was solved and I was taken care of."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that wires got crossed and now I don't have my luggage because my check in agent from the start of my journey didn't send it to the right place."
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Cons: "That I missed my son graduating from the Air Force"
Pros: "Everything else good."
Pros: "Delta gave out free snacks and then I got a flight for the next day."
Cons: "After being delayed over 5 hours and then being on the airplane the flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful. We had some medicine that needed to be refrigerated and they both provided a bag of ice for us to keep it in and checked back to replace the ice as it melted."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late getting into Raleigh, so an hour late leaving Raleigh for MSP. That gave barely enough time to hurry straight to the gate for the MSP to MSO flight."
Pros: "Everything was on time & comfortable."
Cons: "The cold I caught on the way to my destination, but, Oh well. Such is life."
Cons: "Wifi. Cleaning out back pocket of seat"
Pros: "The gate counter gentleman was fantastic. I was seated at the window and I had lost my compression socks on the flight just a couple days before so I wanted to be able to get up and stand without climbing over a passenger. Since I am over 60 years of age, I asked if there was an opportunity in the very back to have an empty seat next to me. Me did find me one and I TOTALLY appreciated it. I used to have the status to have the better seats and it was hard to lose that...this was wonderful. Thanks for making me feel valued."
Cons: "The communication while we were awaiting the delay due to thunderstorm. We did get 2 updates, but I feel over communication better than under ;)"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "My baggage got lost. Don’t lose it."
Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"
Pros: "All was perfect!"
Cons: "Overall, flawless"
Pros: "I’m thankful for the non-stop route between Raleigh and San Francisco. I think I’m being disrespected by the Econ Plus fee of $92 for what??— 6 more inches of legroom?? There’s no way to make a 6-7 hour flight enjoyable beyond first class, so there you go..."
Cons: "No gluten-free snacks. For some of us, it’s not just a trendy fad but an actual allergy with severe consequences."
Cons: "The breakfast could have been more substantial than just a muffin. But everything else was very good!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to weather from other places. More than 100 people were missing their connections. Crew was irritated with so many questions and seemed bothered to give out flight info to worried customers."
Pros: "Delayed for two hours asked three tunes if I would make my other flight and no attempt to help me just was given a I don’t know response!"
Cons: "That the staff wasn’t willing to help make an informed decision!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, plan was leaking something that was discovered when we were taxiing from gate. 1hr 10 min delay"
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "First class was fine - nothing too special"
Cons: "Had to run from complete opposite ends of the Denver airport to catch my flight. I had 10 minutes once off the plane and in the terminal to reach my gate to SF and I was in a walking boot do to an ankle injury. Once sweaty on board the flight was turned back to the terminal delayed three hours and I missed my flight home that day. I then spent from 11pm to 8am in the terminal"
Cons: "We were 3 hrs delayed getting out of RDU because a 'test button' wasn't working. Missed my original connecting flight and the two connecting flights they had me on standby for. got to ohare, the united customer 'service' rep said "there are no more flights to Madison today - I don't even have to look. If you want to get there today, you need to go get on the bus". They didn't even offer to pay for the bus ticket ! Just rude and no customer 'service' at all !"
Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
