Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Front right lav door hard to latch, headphones worked on one side only, gap in middle of lie-flat bed."

Cons: "Food quality is always an issue on flights."
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Pros: "Everything! Thank you"
Cons: "Nothing. Thanks"
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Cons: "First class almost always guarantees a much better experience!"

Pros: "The entertainment was nice."

Told them to cancel and rebooked throught Delta website. Got eticet. But charge was not cancelled. At airport I had 2 tickets. Working with bank. Today gate agent gave me 1st ticket number. Used Kayak and delt never had this issue. Email not changed or misspelled."
Cons: "No eticket or booking number recieved."
Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Pros: "I love flying with Delta because of the entertainment that they provide. It makes the time go by faster. My 5 hour trip was over before I knew it!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"
Cons: "Copilot was an hour late, inexplicably"
Pros: "Staff smooth flight great landing and free movies"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Paid $30 for wifi and it never worked. Would like a refund"
Pros: "Crew was the best!"
Cons: "I really dislike the snack boxes. Snacks need to be more like a small sandwich or grapes, cheese and nuts. Not all that packaged stuff."
Pros: "Thank God I was able to get a refund"
Pros: "Flight is what we have come to think of as okay because nothing hurts"
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Pros: "The captain kept us very informed about what was going on"
Cons: "Only one engine was working"
Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"
Pros: "attendant frienliness, and communication."
Cons: "The plane. it is an unsuitable for more than one hour flight. The value for the money is down in the bottom."
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, crew was professional."
Cons: "STILL annoyed that $300+ only entitles me to a cup of soda and a bag of pretzels..."
Pros: "Flight departed on time, arrived early! Boarding was smooth and effortless. I absolutely don't mind paying a little extra to fly on Delta vs the "low cost" carriers. Thanks Delta!"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Pros: "The move choices were good. The food and wine options were decent."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. Once boarding began, there was no attention paid to distancing guidelines. I heard the crew make announcements about mask requirements but never saw anyone being directly reprimanded or corrected for not wearing a mask or not covering their nose while boarding or walking around the cabin. Even though I only counted fewer than 20 passengers for over 100 seats, upon boarding, three solo passengers were assigned to sit in adjacent seats, with me in the row directly in front of them and another passenger in the row directly behind them. There was no precaution to space out passengers whatsoever. I had tried to choose my seating during check in but the online app was difficult to understand what seats were actually open or taken. Once I boarded it was clear the online information was incorrect. With so few passengers, the gate crew could easily have taken the time to review seating and re-seated customers for improved health and safety. This was my first time flying during COVID and I had thought airlines were doing more to instill trust in customers to keep customers flying but I will not be flying again until COVID is over as I did not see precautions keeping customers safe."
Cons: "Offer water or soft drink without buying it."
Pros: "Separate lines for boarding"
Cons: "No transfer or ticket agents to be found to change/upgrade flight."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Cons: "It started over an hour late and they lost my luggage"
Pros: "Boeing 777 seating is comfortable, other is not so much."

Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seats are too congested"
Cons: "We love everything was our first time and was excellent"
Cons: "It was a smaller aircraft than the one on the way there. So a lot more cramped. And it was SO HOT. I dont know why they give blankets when they keep it so hot. I thought I was going to lose it."

Pros: "again the cabin crew were excellent and professional"
Pros: "On time - good service great entertainment"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Length of flight was long but there's nothing that can be done about it."
Pros: "Great cabin staff. More food and various times than I've gotten with other airlines."
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "20 minutes "to reposition the gate to make it safer for exitong the airplane" - sounds like nonsense to me. No meal - and that really is nonsense."
Pros: "Thanks for many up to date movie choices to watch. Crew worked hard to keep the toddlers in front of me happy. (and they were really good with them!)"
Cons: "Dislike posting of gate assignments in Edinburgh and London so late. Means I have to hightail it across the terminals, every time. Dislike the gate change posting late. Had to hear about it from a passenger, no announcement was made. My chicken and potatoes lunch had potatoes as the side dish. Looked like the caterer had leftover potatoes to use! No real vegetables. 2 bites of spinach. Red wine was offered they had no white wine. No choice of sodas..."
Pros: "Funny safety video. Good beer and wine. Lots of movie choices. Never a line to the toilets."
Cons: "Cramped seating area, but I did have an extra seat next to me."
Cons: "There was no food or movie"
Cons: "Was told no soft drinks or water were included in flight. Had to pay if i wanted a water."
Cons: "Theres no entertainment and I had to run to my gate because the connection time is so short."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "Got Home day later , slept on airport floor. Meal was poor , no more vegetarian food left . Wrap was given with chicken & maynosie where as Asian / Hindu veg meal was ordered ."
Cons: "Same as above ."
Cons: "Lost luggage. Can proceed. Must by new tickets from SaS and may miss boat"
Cons: "There was no complimentary food offered like other airlines, not even water."
Cons: "Poor food, poor movie choises"
Pros: "Uneventful, other than having missed the original connecting flight on account of delays."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment, so I can't rate them."
Pros: "The cabin crew was nice. The main dish was good. The entertainment choices were decent and the system worked fine. I don't sleep in planes so it's important to me. I got a forward facing seat so at least I didn't have to deal with the alternative."
Cons: "Not being able to make seat assignment earlier (i.e. 24h) was lame for a business flight. The second meal was mediocre, as was coffee. The screen of my entertainment system was scratched and cracked, but it didn't disturb me too much."
Cons: "No thigh support"
Pros: "Good hospitality"
Cons: "As to drinks like juices etc there is no suffecient supply"
Cons: "Food was dry for dinner and not very tasty. Breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "Quick flight. Was late leaving but made up time in the air."
Cons: "Not enough time to serve folks while in flight. Consider taking orders in the Departure Lounge before boarding flight."
Cons: "This was a 3.5 hour flight and the only food offered was an egg and onion sandwich. Pathetic."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Charged us 1/2 adult fare for lap infant. Lied to us we had assigned seats. Would not let us check in online. Lied at terminal we had bulkhead with area for infant. Incompetence and lying at several points. We have flown on multiple airlines with infant without any of these problems. VERY poor airlines."
Pros: "Despite a four hour delay the staff was in good spirits and generally pleasant. The entertainment selections were also comprehensive."
Cons: "The food choices were very limited (chicken curry or pasta alfredo) neither of which were dairy free."
Pros: "Nice new airplane (787). On time. Good food. Plenty of fluids served."
Pros: "Great service and good food."
Cons: "About 100 people didn't make the flight!"
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Pros: "New plane, very comfortable seating. The headphones in biz class were awesome, forgot I was on the plane. Overall best American Airlines flight and I do fly them a lot. Also liked the dual screens option."
Cons: "The seat control in the touch pad - not conveniently placed"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Food was okay"
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "The temperature was annoyingly hot on board."
Pros: "Full flight but I had two seats and a delightful Ghanaian seat mate"
Cons: "Being dumped in Phillie with canceled E.g. To Burlington Vt"
Pros: "best crew ive had flying in quite a long time"
Pros: "Good and on time flight. Loved the information given by all crews."
Cons: "My bags arrived a day later on 25th night which caused alot of inconviniency because i had to travel back to the Airport the following day for my cloths. The baggage handlers opened my bags and removed some items which is unacceptable . Stressed still about that"
Pros: "Arrived at gate for general boarding and was in my seat in 5 minutes. Crew was friendly. Announcements are not annoyingly loud, so as to startle me - or other passengers. Crisps and a G&T were fine for a 1.25 hour flight. The coat hooks on the side of each headrest is convenient (wish they would be used more...see cons)"
Cons: "luggage overhead stuffed with jackets and small shopping bags. I travel with a slightly larger than average daypack. I tried to rearrange bags and coats quickly in the overhead to fit my pack but with people waiting behind me to get to their seats, I just decided to stuff my pack under the seat. It was sticking out a bit but the FAs didn't notice (or ignored it). I've heard recently on some flights that the FAs ask passengers to hold onto their coats until boarding is complete. Afterwards the FAs took about 90 seconds to walk the aisle and place coats in the overhead by passenger request in front of the luggage. I find this an efficient way for boarding to move a little quicker and get more luggage (and probably the same number of coats) in the overhead."
Pros: "The best the crew"
Cons: "The airbus plane. The seats are the smaller I've seen. Boarding is not very well organized. Pleople should be online and not all together at the door pushing."
Cons: "we were in the back of the plane and by the time the dinner got to our row we had no choice- no chicken and only a pasta/cheese dish and I am dairy intolerant! No other choices were offered- not even a snack!"
