Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great, very generous with snacks and beverages, and prior to boarding we were able to switch flights and seats without problem. All the Delta agents were extremely helpful, and had great customer service!"
Cons: "Far in advance I requested a seat with extra leg room for a back condition that is supported by a physicians note. The seat did not appear to me to have extra leg room. I was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Handing by any cap was great to get us on the plane on time."
Cons: "The plane we got on time to board was delayed enough to miss our connecting flight, so delayed another 3 hours when missing the next flight."
Pros: "Flight was mostly uneventful, which is great! Right after takeoff we made a complete circle and no information was given as to why, but we assumed it was air traffic."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"
Cons: "Less legroom than other airlines but have never flown to South America before"
Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat."
Pros: "Everything! I appreciate that the ticketing agent helped me get an earlier flight and I appreciated the gate agent making sure I had a good seat! I love Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing honestly"
Pros: "New plane with good features. I was very comfortable."

Pros: "On time, good flight"
Cons: "No power on outlets at waiting room airport, charge 2 dollars for earplugs"
Cons: "Delta always has 1 or maybe 2 people checking everyone in, including the baggage drop. So, EVERYONE has to wait for one person to finish checking in the first class passenger with a thousand needs. Very poor service as is their norm."
Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"
Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."

Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"

Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."

Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."
Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
Cons: "Sold us a flight with unassigned seats"
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"

Pros: "Boarding, food, drinks"
Cons: "Seats (not much reclining, I felt them uncomfortable)"
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."
Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Cons: "Flight overbooked, they assigned me a seat 5 minutes before departure"
Cons: "Fly was cancelled"
Pros: "Well the crew was very kind and helpful and approachable. This is good even though one might not need anything other than the usual but the seemed very friendly"
Cons: "The change of gates and not updated in the chart soon enough so one would go to assigned gate just to realized it has been changed."
Pros: "Crew on board is nice, price is good"
Cons: "A lot can be improved, the food is bad, counter personal in NY is not empathic at all. I prefer not to pay for that food and bring mine. Your seats should be declared torture instruments"
Pros: "same as before"
Cons: "same as before"
Cons: "Had to spend the whole day in airport due to justfly booking error"
Pros: "I liked how I was always informed on my phone about my flight I was happy that finally someone cared enough to find me a flight for what I had already paid for."
Cons: "If I had KNOWN that I could stay at the airport (everyone was sleeping everywhere lol) then I would have not paid the $100 extra to only have a 1 hr & 20 min layover instead of a 15 hr layover. Because with possibilities of issues like I had as well as the plane leaving early there’s too much stress. Plus I was almost STUCK in the airport because I didn’t have $1000. The insurance I bought did nothing for me because they said I missed the flight (although the flight left early) UGH"
Cons: "The flight itself was fine, but connecting through Mexico City airport is troublesome and time consuming. Mexican authorities make everyone go through a long line at customs. Since we checked in through Delta in San Antonio, we did not have a boarding pass for the Lima portion. , We had to exit into the main concourse to get our boarding pass. At that point we were on standby for seats and barely made our connection."
Pros: "Check-in at the airport was good. The person at the counter changed my seat assignment for the second leg of the flight, and I appreciated that."
Cons: "Safety demo was non-existent, at least from the back row."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "scheduled layover was 9+ hours. It became even more painful including a delayed aircraft."

Cons: "My video screen would not work."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really great."
Cons: "Of course flying is always uncomfortable and like being packed into a sardine can"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very attentive. Asked twice to get the declaration form and eventually had to go to the back to ask for it again."
Pros: "Everything! From check in to boarding it was smooth"
Cons: "Don’t have anything to say I didn’t like it!"
Cons: "Did not let me check in so I missed my flight. Last time I will ever pay for an Alaska airline flight."
Pros: "The meals and flights attendance were great"
Cons: "The AC on flight 748 for some reason it wasn't cold enough. No entertainment on the seat. Maybe is older air plane."
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and flight arrived ahead of time."
Pros: "Me gusto que el vuelo salio a tiempo, tamien que los sobrecargos son muy amables y el abordaje aunque se hacen unas lineas enormes es un tanto veloz conciderando la muchedumbre, con el poco tiempo que tienen para ocupar la cabina en realidad hacen milagros, mil dracias"
Cons: "El bocadillo que ofrecen es muy pobre y en mi criterio o mejor no proveer nada o mejorar la calidad, el cafe, bueno; deja mucho que decear. Y bueno que decir de el espacio entre acientos, va uno con las rodillas en el respaldo de el vecino al frente pero bueno en fin no esta todo tan mal, AeroMexico Gracias por sus atenciones."
Cons: "Hot inside the plane"
Cons: "Dinner was terrible"
Cons: "Rude staff. Airline doesn't respect its own carry-on bag policy. I was forced to leave my bag at the door despite being one of the first on the plane. Seats very close together -- my knees were up against the seat in front of me all night."
Pros: "Good food and good entertainment."
Cons: "Mexico City lounge was terrible as their key hub , the wife and food was bad so I went to the hsbc lounge as I am a vip there was well"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Airplane seemed a bit old."
Cons: "Ground staff in Lima was very unhelpful when they broke my suitcase. No offer of refund only a handwritten phone number to call in a few days. Handwriting was not legible."
Cons: "Will never fly with Aeromexico ever again"
Pros: "Food was just terrible¡"
Pros: "The airplane where I traveled was huge a comfortable, I loved to have my own little TV and being able to choose a movie . The staff was really nice. I wish you had flights from Tijuana to Puebla, Mexico. Please let me how can I find out about your promotions. firstname.lastname@example.org"
Cons: "That I did not travel in the first class or in one of the seat that where after the first class. Those that can be reclined and have a lot of space. I believe they are also first class. Let me know what I can do to be able to travel in one those seats."
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "I upgraded to AM PLUS so that I could take advantage of the EASY CHECKING. WIDER SEATS. BE AMONGST THE FIRST TO GET LUGGAGE. ALL THIS ITEMS WERE PROMISED BY YOU WEBSITE. non of these things happened. I was instructed to email to request a refund. Took ten days to here back and was denied. You guys have a perfect procedure for not giving refunds. Can’t talk to anyone by phone then take 10 days to deny. By that time most will just give up. I am a frequent flyer that will NEVER fly with you again and neither will the employees of my company."
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Embraer aircraft. imposible to get an upgrade"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment as iwas able to see my favorite program. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Everything was fine. We just got nervous because our luggage was literally the last ones to come out."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Punctuality and service. Also the landing"
Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t let me board"
Cons: "The fact they sell you a flight with a connection in Mexico City with only an hour to transfer is ridiculous. Being that this is mexico’s airline they must know it’s a literal impossibility to make that connection. When you arrive they automatically shuttle you into an area to rebook you almost like it’s expected. Then you wait for 8 hrs in a crowded ghetto airport waiting to get on the next flight. When you speak to customer service they talk to you like your a dummy."
Cons: "Everything. The customer service was horrible. They did not honor the seat reservation and stationed my father in the back of the plane instead of the front of the plane as agreed on my reservations. They charged for baggage. The whole experience was horrible!"
Pros: "Great crew, great fare and pretty easy and convenient process."
Cons: "Seats aren't the most comfortable and very little leg room"
Pros: "Nice crew, free drinks"
Cons: "Food (pasta) was terrible, not a comfortable plane for an overnight flight. I'm small, just over 5ft and 110lbs (50kg) and I was uncomfortable the entire flight, couldn't sleep even 5 minutes."
Cons: "This airline seemed to be unprepared at every step of the way. When I showed up to the airport to check my baggage (this was 2 hours before my flight) there was a huge line of people already there. I went to the back of the line and after 15 minutes of not moving I texted my family that I might be missing my flight. As I got closer to the front a nervous and overwhelmed Aeromexico employee went to the back of the line and handed the last person a paper and told her she would be the last person allowed on the flight. Anyone lined up after her was turned away because they had showed up too late. It seemed to me that those people would have made it onto the flight if the airline had been prepared and ready to check everyone in on time. When I was finally able to check my bag there were only 20 minutes left until my flight was supposed to depart. I rushed to the security checkpoint and ran to my gate in fear of missing my flight, only to find another large line of people. They hadn't even started boarding! After waiting 10 minutes in line (10 minutes before the plane was supposed to depart), the crew slowly strolled to the gate. They didn't even seem to care. Overall, my experience was below average, but seeing how people were not allowed to board due to the airline not being prepared for this flight, I would say I won't be flying Aeromexico again."
Pros: "Great service inside the plane"
Cons: "Rude people checking in bags"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kind. I enjoyed the coffe a lot"
Cons: "Boarding was delay. I spent 25 minutes making a line"
Cons: "it was a bad customer service. They never mentioned I had to be 2 hours earlier to be on board, I didn't got heads up, i came like an hour and 15 minutes, and they told me I was not able to go in, because the gates were closed. I told them about my situation that I was late because I was in a funeral, and they didn't really care about it. Customer service was not really nice to me even though when I got there not to late. They didn't really care. Sad about it. I though they were going to considered my case. The attitude of some employees were unacceptable."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and the food was pretty good considering it was airplane food. They came around and gave drink refills."
Cons: "The plane left almost an hour late, when previously it has said it was running on schedule. The seats are cramped, barely any leg room to get comfortable in."
Cons: "The layover in Mexico city was too long 10 hrs layover....."
Cons: "Entire experience. Fly a better airline"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Great and attentive ground and air crew. Bilingual and great food and drink."
