Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."
Cons: "even though I was in Delta One -- the seats in the reclined position were kind of narrow, arm rests in the way made it difficult to turn over, IF I were trying to sleep. but i loved being in first class -- the only way to go on a long flight :)"
Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."
Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."

Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"

Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."

Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"
Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."

Cons: "Terrible turbulence. Very rough landing. No beverage service. Late taking off."
Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."

Cons: "The only negative was an older aircraft but the crew went out of their way to talk to people about setting up entertainment."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."
Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."
Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."
Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."

Pros: "Best soft landing ever!!!! Great pilots."

Cons: "Bus translortation should we replaced with walkways. The equipment exists but for some reason we had to use busses to get from plane to terminal."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely freezing even with a winter coat and two blankets. The website would not let me and my friend choose our seats prior to getting passes so we had to keep asking people to switch on both legs of the journey. The bathrooms were disgusting. Pillows are reused."
Pros: "Good service, good food. Landed on time even though we left slightly late."
Cons: "There wasn't a TV per seat and you can't select what you want to watch, but this was not really an issue as the flight was only 2 hours."

Pros: "crew, that the cabin was dark and quiet, good for sleeping."
Cons: "wish I had the budget for a roomier or more fold-down seat for sleeping."

Cons: "Seats were not super comfortable, food wasn't great."
Pros: "The crew and ponctuality"
Cons: "No entertainment on board!!!"
Cons: "Their aircrafts are dirty"
Pros: "How helpful and wonderfully kind each person was. The service was great. I enjoyed the vegetarian options. The briyani was chicken and I was able to eat around the chicken —delicious and tasty. The crew were cheerful and a refreshing relief to the long voyage across this planet. I look forward to my ever increasing abundance so I may travel business for at least one leg of the flight each way. Thank you Virgin Atlantic."
Cons: "Nothing you could have provided other than a business class leg each way. Long, long flight across this planet—half way. I would prefer more English and Foreign movies, please. Unfortunately I left my prescription reading glasses on flight VA602 and Jacques Nortje at Heathrow was kind enough to go looking for them at the lost and found of Virgin Atlantic—to no avail. Black hard case with blue rimmed glasses and a blue cleaning cloth. His service was a godsend—enabling me to stay flight side whilst he went land side so I did not need to go through security for an unaccomplished mission as the glasses were not there."
Pros: "Everything as expected. Kudos to the captain for skill and for his reassuring announcement to passengers (that we were all safe, no harm done) after the plane was struck by lightening on route."
Cons: "The aircraft could not take off due to a technical issue and we were told by the captain that we would be provided with accommodation for the night. This did not transpire and the whole plane had to sleep in the departure lounge on the seats with cold aircon and no food or drink. The staff went home and left us to survive. We were told that they would not put us on another flight. By 8 am there was a mutiny because no one was keeping us informed about what was happening. We were tired and hungry and they just did care. After a group meeting, which got very angry, we were then allocated a room in a hotel. The lack of help was unbelievable and we were made to feel like criminals. No senior management came to give apologies. No compensation was offered for our 24 hour delay."
Cons: "LUGGAGE going missing! TLVET11960 1. In Cape Town I was told that I would need to collect and check in again on arrival in Addis - that was my understanding of the instruction. 2. At Addis I was advised that the luggage was being transferred to the Tel Avid flight ET404 3. On arrival at Tel Aviv - no luggage. Advised it would arrive Thurs afternoon and be delivered to my hotel. I asked which flight it would come on and when I could expect that it would be delivered. Was told that was not possible to confirm. IN MY MIND THAT INDICATES THAT THIS IS NOT GENUINE CONFIRMATION. 4. I asked what arrangements would they make for me to get an allowance to cover costs of some clothing/toiletry items I would need to buy. Was told this is not Ethiopian Airlines policy!!!!! 5. This cannot be as there are international regulations in this regard. 6.YOU WILL PAY for express laundry service and a couple of items I'll need to buy today!!! 7. Tried calling 039754008 and only get a recorded message! THIS IS TOTALLY UNSATISFACTORY"
Pros: "Plane was clean and seats were comfortable. Staff was overall friendly."
Pros: "Excellent staff"
Pros: "Loved the movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are entirely too close together, even for me and I'm only 5"3. Airlines are trying to maximize profits while sacrificing passenger comfort and that is ridiculous. Great customer service will gain more business than any other method."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Pros: "Short flight, was ontime"
Cons: "Too many rules with South African Air, sticklers about every little thing. Annoying, but whatever."
Pros: "Food was alright, flight was quiet"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and staff was friendly. Lunch was served, which was good."
Pros: "The flight was great, no problem."
Cons: "Flight was very comfortable and the staff was courteous."
Cons: "We ended up at a gate in the International terminal at Tambo (Jo'burg). the plane was a big Airbus. We deplaned EVERYONE thru one little door, descended stairs to the tarmac and had to ride buses back to the domestic terminal. It took forever and I ended up missing my connection. I fail to understand why they didn't dock this domestic flight into the DOMESTIC terminal, and use a regular getway to deplane everyone."
Pros: "No delays (although last minute gate change was a bit annoying)"
Cons: "Meal options ran out quickly even though I was somewhat seated towards the front. They should keep a record of popularity of food options and stock accordingly, in order to prevent running out so quickly."
Pros: "Priority boarding went reasonably well. We left almost on time,"
Cons: "The layout of the business class section was very basic, as was the quality of food served."
Cons: "Technology sucked. TV screens were old and none of the headphone jacks worked."
Cons: "Most airlines on the planet allow headphones during take-off and landing but you guys don't. Chill out and get with the 21st century."
Pros: "I got help with the boarding pass and once on the plane was very impressed with the comfort of the interior and cleanliness of the plane. I would definitely fly with that airline again."
Pros: "Voyager programme Efficient and friendly crew On return flight they checked passengers hand luggage and stopped the overweight and excessive bags - brilliant as makes flight comfortable for all"
Cons: "Both flights delayed Return flight was an old plane needing some TLC Voyager customer care sucks - they really need a mobile app On return flight they helped themselves to snack in the front pouch of my checked in bag"
Pros: "This was a quick flight and similar to domestic flights in the US."
Pros: "The provide a snack and drinks on a two hour flight--that's worth something."
Cons: "I wouldn't bother with a sandwich for everyone--especially during non meal times. Why not offer chips or something lighter rather than wasting all the sandwiches people half eat."
Pros: "clean, large cabin."
Cons: "bus to the plane is a little old"
Pros: "The gave us lots of water"
Cons: "Old plain, lost my one mine bags, missing items"
Cons: "Quite delayed, my luggage didn't make the connection due this and all my christmas presents are now in South Africa and since I'm flying to a 4th country with another airline I won't be able to pick it up from NYC. A mess."
Pros: "I liked the fact that this flight was short. I slept for the almost 2 hours."
Cons: "They could keep the food they serve on this short flight. I would do better with a bag of pretzels than the sorry sandwich they offered."
Cons: "Incident report: August 15, 2016, SA210, When we stopped at Accra, Ghana, Kotoka International ACC for re-fuel and cleaning the aircraft --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- South African Airline violates two accounts stated on the bottle: 1. When it says “dis-infection of Aircraft” means Passengers are not Aircraft. Passengers should not be sprayed on. Passengers should not be in the airplane when this is sprayed. 2. Use for Pre-embarkation means no human in the aircraft. We were inside of the aircraft. It sprayed on our body all over and everywhere. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Major health damages: 3. After the spray, several passengers (our travel group) had severe sneezing attacks and running nose and sinusitis. One lady sneezed at least 50 times non-stop initially and continued to sneeze for the rest of the trip in the plane. Her sinus was swollen and painful for the rest of trip to Johannesburg. You are lucky she did not make a big deal and suffered silently. You may argue that WHO approved it. On the bottle, WHO approve for the use of Aircraft, not human in the aircraft. On August 15, 2016, I witnessed many passengers’ immune system were damaged – some reacted violently. 4. Please do not wait until someone has asthma attack and die in your aircraft due to allergy to the spray. 5. As a physician I prescribe Permethrin for Scabies treatment. Patients were told to use it on the skin for 8-10 hours and then wash off complete right away due to potential neurotoxicity, especially for young children. 6. My medical specialty is Integrative Medicine and Preventive Medicine. I feel I am obligated to bring this up to Department of Health of South Africa in order to prevent passengers being harmed, especially those who suffer from chemical / environmental allergies, rhinitis, sinusitis, asthma, COPD, skin disease, migraine, etc… just to name a few. 7. Suggestion and Solution: Passengers should all be off the plane, and escort to an area while aircraft is being re-fueled, cleaned and sprayed insides. This will make the cleaning crews more efficient for their cleaning work and less allergenic reactions, potential fatal, to passengers who suffer dust and / or insecticide spray allergies. This will reduce health hazard to passengers and workers. Thank you for being conscious about environmental safety issues. PS: One crew member, Imraan, is very conscientious. He came and showed his concern about symptoms one lady had from spray. He made SA airlines look better. One crew member was rude because he reluctant to give me one bottle of water for my husband who was sleeping at the time of the drink service. ."

Held us in a separate room including me who is single mother traveled with 2 year old for 3 flights in the row. My son didnt get his meal. Also had to ask for any juice. Horrible menu. Late food serving, but quick to clean up in a rash. Loud people on phones and nobody stopped them. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Pros: "The crew members are super friendly and caring."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "The seat was awful. Narrow with little leg room , hard on the backside, minimal recline."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Pros: "Boarding staff & crew were fine"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable I have ever travelled in - this plane definitely has the worst seat width, leg & reclining space that I have seen. I have been in long-range (16 hours) flights that were more comfortable than this. If anything fell on the floor, I couldn't retrieve, I couldn't sleep at all & had contorted joints & a body ache when we landed. To design such tiny seats is truly inhumane."

Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"
Pros: "The crew was great and made the flight comfortable and easy! They brought drinks as needed, free of charge, movies and headphones were provided, and the flight arrived ahead of schedule in London! A wonderful experience!

Pros: "The boarding agent did not allow my traveling companion on Till the very last moment because of the size of his backpack. He this was our seventh plane ride in two weeks and nobody else has given us a problem.. After 10 days on the Camino DeSantiago the extra stress was not welcome.. Also short trip with the no there for each service was disappointing. Didn’t see a whole lot of the crew. It was if they were taking a break the entire time."
Cons: "The amount of carry-on and size should not have been an issue with backpacks. They fit perfectly into the overhead compartments. Plus a snack and beverage service would have been nice"

Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "comfort is really good the seats are big"
Pros: "Cleared Gatwick security fine. Boarding was fine. Departed gate on-time."
Cons: "Got 200 yards from the gate only to park in another stand, the plane shut down and waited an hour for engineers to come fix a ‘communication computer’ error (basically they had to reboot the plane)."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable!"
Cons: "British Airways boarding is very chaotic. Not unorganized at all. They don’t seem to care about economy passengers!"

Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."
Cons: "My TV worked only intermittently and I therefore could not relax and enjoy the entertainment..."

Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
