Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew were helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Flight on time! Missed connections. In hotel overnight. Missed the event I was travelling to attend!"
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft. Great crew."
Cons: "can't think of anything"
Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."
Pros: "I have flown with Delta for a number of trips now. I seem to receive middle seat allocations even with the freqent flyers partnership with Virgin Velosity program shared."
Cons: "My seat allocation."
Pros: "No food or entertainment on a short hop of ~ 150 miles by air; I would have preferred to rate “N/A” but this wasn’t an option."
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."
Pros: "The service during the flight was excellent."
Cons: "That they didn't load my luggage on the correct plane, even though they had 9 hours to do so. Then when I went to airport yesterday to pick it up, all the pull tabs on 3 of the zippers were broke off, my bubble wrapped bowls were destroyed, and all my books that I had bought were wet with pages stuck together.(ruined 6 books). Extremely disappointed,"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."
Pros: "Great services ce."
Pros: "Flying first class and the attendants were wonderful"
Pros: "I liked booking/purchasing my ticket on Kayak on June 3rd."
Cons: "I did not like arriving for my 4:50 PM EST flight at 4:10 PM EST and being told there is no way I can make my flight. The crew at CVG’s Delta desk is incredibly uninspiring and not helpful at all. A lot can be done in 40 minutes and they made little to no effort helping me make my flight or to get me on another flight on 6/13 that would get me home to Colorado Springs the same day."
Pros: "Made the best of a overcrowded messy airport"
Pros: "20 minutes ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."

Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "Everything was great from boarding to landing."
Pros: "Comfort Plus allowed us to board early, useful USB ports."
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "Plane was clean, easy boarding, crew was kind and attentive."
Cons: "30 minutes late no explanations...."
Pros: "Flight was 3 hours late leaving due to frost on wings. De icing truck wouldn’t work so they waited until sunrise and parked the plane in the sun. Real hi tech solution."
Pros: "Flight was nice"
Cons: "Boarding was slow because boarding is done poorly"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight left on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The flight was rough. The coffee was horrible though."
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "2 Delta employers went out of their way to address our messed up situation and make sure we got home without robbing us blind."
Pros: "We finally got home"
Pros: "The flight trip coming to an end."
Cons: "Boarding is inefficient. Attendants were friendly but not attentive. The entertainment system was malfunctioning. This was not a pleasant experience."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time then when they called for the zone 3 they told us to hurry up. The steward was doing everything by hand motion. You couldn't hear what he was saying. The plane was extremely noisy and we asked what the noise was none of the crew answered. This is not the normal service that I am used to from Delta."
Pros: "On time great baggage retrieval"
Pros: "Delta did a great job - you absolutely can not complain about the food/drink service as they are seemingly constantly walking through the aisles to offer more food and drinks. The coffee is kind of lousy, but I'm sure it is a tremendous challenge to serve good coffee on an airplane."
Cons: "My entertainment system was essentially broken - one of the crew members was very helpful in helping me try to fix it and then giving a voucher for what I thought was a reasonable amount."
Cons: "VERY bumpy ride- scary"
Pros: "The environment and efficiency."
Cons: "There were extra seats to begin with and I was traveling alone with an infant. She barely slept the whole flight and I had a stuardis in a red dress who whem I asked for for a beverage made it seem like I asked for it right now. Didn't say a word Else to me until it was time to land and my daughter had just fell asleep. She told me. I had to take her out of the baby carrier. My daughter needed a diaper change and there were no places to change her. I tried to change her by the door really fast. The stuardis said no go change in a bathroom I asked which one had a changing station they said none and to just change in my lap. Plus my car seat was broke when I got it back."
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived 20 min early!! Free in-flight entertainment is a huge plus!"
Pros: "Lady said she was taking the seat I paid an upgrade fee for. Crew did nothing. Said I should take her seat."
Pros: "Great Service and amenities for a great price!"
Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."
Pros: "At least there was a free shuttle to the discounted rate hotel."
Cons: "There was not enough time to run to the connecting flight. Was told they could not wait, yet then the plane sat on the runway for 25+ min. Had to get a hotel and rebook the flight. Very poor experience flying Delta."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Short flight 35 minutes, Attendants were magnificent - friendly and focused on the customers as if they were important human beings spending hard earned cash instead of live cargo whose fares were already in the bank. This factor alone will cause me to choose Delta over others despite any small difference in price. Never waited very long in any line. Zero frustration."
Cons: "Had to pay to check a bag for the 35 min. domestic leg of my international flight which carries no baggage fee ON THE SAME AIRLINE booked at the same time. Lame."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Cabin air was very warm. Individual A/C fan was very slow. With it being a night flight, I was unable to read since my overhead light was not working."
Pros: "When I was finally able to get on a later flight this was a very good one"
Cons: "The cancellation of original flight was stressful as I had a wedding to attend and the long delay and subsequent cancellation of original flight prevented me from it. Further, I was forced to get local transport after arrival in FLL, since I missed my ride altogether."
Cons: "We had over 2 hours layover in Atlanta. After eating lunch at getting to gate B1 and waiting a while, I got an alert from the Delta app on my phone that said that the flight was now loading at A30. This was incorrect information that had several people upset. This was my first flight to use the Delta app to track my baggage. It was never updated to let me know where it was until after I landed in BHM. The app indicated that my bag was on another flight"
Cons: "The entertainment system was extremely difficult to deal with. The screen did not seem receptive to the human finger and often the menu lines were small and very close together, leading to the incorrect item being selected. Finally I gave up and was just trying to put on "my flight", but it just made me take survey after survey, instead of allowing me access to "my flight" information."
Cons: "It being on time"
Pros: "The pilots and the team did a good job."
Cons: "They changed my seat i paid For last minute and sat me in a small seat when i paid For extra leg room."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No turbulence"
Pros: "flight attendant excellent. Flight on time."

Cons: "WiFi was weak...things were stolen out of my carry on checked at the gate in Charlotte...I had the only bag checked at the gate."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was excellent. Very respectful and kind in their answers."
Cons: "AA should really do something about their food selection as the cost of improving the food they can give economy class will not cost anymore than what they give now."
Cons: "They forgot to plan a pilot....also the crew was 45 min late"
Pros: "Crew serving was bad"
Cons: "Quality of food not good"
Pros: "Crew was hospitable. :) movies were great."

Pros: "I upgraded to a premium seat I was assigned a seat in the middle very uncomfortable when there were empty seats three rows ahead should not have been a problem"

Cons: "Seats are small and not ergonomic"
Pros: "We got there"
Pros: "Movie was the only positive side of the trip. Cramp seats."
Cons: "Subpar in every aspect. Landing was horrible with a hard touch that made everyone bounce."
Cons: "There was no one at the ticket kiosk located by TSA and no sign that said they would be back or to go to another booth. After waiting 10 minutes I️ went upstairs and found a chaotic mass of people checking in at the actual open kiosk. The check in process was not clearly defined and even after spending 30 minutes checking a bag I️ still had to care my checked bag down to another TSA check line. In their boarding area there were minimal phone chargers. The plane was small and no leg room and a rigid uncomfortable seat. Also the flight was at night and they kept the cabin lights on. That was super frustrating to an exhausted traveler who was trying to sleep."
Pros: "Nice airline very accommodating. Loved first class"
Pros: "ON TIME AND VERY SMOOTH. EVEN EARLY! THANKS!"
Cons: "Very high decibel high pitched noise from engines as we taxied to gate in PHL. VERY annoying. Lasted over 5 minutes. ALSO, i didnt need to print out own boarding passes. You could fix your website check in px."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Shabby Cramped"
Cons: "Cramped Uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Tiny seats and no personalized entertainment options. We booked this on British Airways but have pretty much been on American flights on every leg. This made customer service more complicated. And this plane was terribly uncomfortable. Boo!"
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Pros: "GSP easy to navigate- easy option for WNC travelers"
Cons: "Small, old plane. No drinks, snacks, or entertainment."
Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"

Cons: "The departure was delayed approximately an hour."
Pros: "N/A flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and finally cancelled."
Cons: "I thought I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight. I booked on Alaska Airlines website. I picked seats. I missed the part in the email I received later saying I didn't have seats. I never received a check in notification email. It took forever to check in at the airport because the the kiosk took a while to pull up my reservation after asking for additional information. I got stuck with middle seats on 5 hour plus flights when I had actually checked to confirm I could still select a window seat before I booked and did indeed select window seats when I booked."
Pros: "Pilots avoided turbulence for flight."
Cons: "Music reception was very poor on flight. had trouble accessing Wifi."
Cons: "3 hours late."
Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."
Cons: "The flight was operated by American Eagle, on a small regional commuter jet. We had to board from the tarmac and climb a steep flight of stairs to board. Not advisable for anyone with limited mobility."
Cons: "They changed our gate four times and delayed our flight two hours. Got in after midnight and wasn't able to pick up my rental car."
Cons: "I liked American better than the other airlines used during my trip. Those were United n Southwest"
Pros: "Easy ticketing and boarding. Price was good"
Cons: "Zero flexibility"
Cons: "My flight was severely delayed and my family was improperly informed"

They had to drive 4 hours . I had very important event I could not miss. No explanation was given about the reason of flight being cancelled."
Cons: "We will NEVER fly AA again."
Cons: "The part where the flight didn't happen. Not surprising at all considering the aircraft on this route always appears to be 20+ years old with worn down carpet and seat cushions and broken tray tables."
Pros: "Landed early and everything was just as expected."
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "Plane was dirty"
Pros: "The crew, was friendly and attentive to any and all needs."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Newark at 4:30. But it did not leave Charleston until 6:15 PM! This is not the 1st time this has happened with United. It seems that they are always some kind if “weather” delay with United flights arriving and departing Newark. Also, they are constantly cancelling flights to/from there. I would suggest looking at a different airline, perhaps one that cares more about the passengers iteneraries than the number of passengers."
Pros: "Food was great and unexpected"
Cons: "Plane sucks. Too small and poor seats. Better snack selection."
Pros: "Very quick flight from ORD to BHM involving hardly any bad weather which got me home early."

Pros: "Most of it"
Cons: "Purchase of snack! I only received a cracker and a soda!! Also, the movies were not free!! Really!!!!"
Cons: "Wifi access"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They comped everyone the direct tv access as an apology for the delay, but I'd rather be comped wifi."
Cons: "It ended up being a 5 hour delay. I would have been fine with it if they had told us up front that it was 5 hours, but instead it's 2 hours, then after an hour passes they tack on another hour and so on. It would be nice just to know it'll be a long wait, so we can leave and come back or reschedule our flight for the next day."
Cons: "Cramped space."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants brought a few people drinks and then disappeared leaving the rest of us thirsty"
Pros: "Clean waiting area; enough room overhead for my carryon bag."
Cons: "Couldn't get internet based entertainment on my iPhone as advertised"
Cons: "we had to sit on runway for 1 hr to burn fuel to lighten the load. did not get served until 1 hr of fly time."
Cons: "Wifi never worked, mentioned several times to crew and didn't have decency to check or follow up. Attendants were crabby at best and were acting like they were doing passengers a favor by even. Wing there. Very rude and unprofessional to every question. Captain came out to go to bathroom twice and chatted up remaining flight attendant for several minutes- making it so passengers couldn't approach restrooms."
Cons: "Third time a flight has been delayed and then cancelled. United has horrible customer service, rude and inexperienced. It will be a very very last resort before I ever book with them. Three strikes you're out"
Pros: "The flight attendant was professional and pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding in Houston was disorganized"
Pros: "Timely take-off. Info from flight deck good in the beginning."
Cons: "However reporting of weather delay and the info about fuel stock on the aircraft could have been beter managed."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The whole flight seemed like a sales pitch. Pay to upgrade to our empty seats with a little more legroom. Pay to watch TV cross country (Delta, American, and all others are included). They did have more sales pitches on the screen for 6 hours though. Pay for snacks. Not even peanuts or pretzels anymore. They do give you a disgusting wafer. Flew back on Delta and didn't see any of this. Between this and their recent beating up of customers, no more United for me."
Cons: "Two hours late!"
Cons: "Overall United airport staff were not helpful and not very apologetic for delays and missed connections"

Cons: "More room. The plane was not full but we still were shoved in middle seat with no room for normal shoulders without over lapping. The seating areas are not comfortable. They put three seats where there is only room for two."
Pros: "Not much gave united a chance may not travel again"
Cons: "Very hot flight attendants were not friendly checking in o"
Pros: "Delays, rudeness, doesn't have its act together. Must be United Airlines"
Pros: "Easy boarding and on time . Pleasant staff. 0verall good flight"
Pros: "Overall the flights were trouble free. The seats on the CRJ145 to Chicago were pretty confortable. United is the only airline that gives passengers a complete can of coke instead of just a cup. The snack was just so so."
Cons: "The seats on the plane from Chicago to Tucson were not comfortable. I could feel the hard bottom."
Pros: "Seats are to small but fortunately sat directly behind first class and had plenty of leg room. The new entertainment system worked well."
Pros: "The price"

Cons: "Had to wait 5 hours because my flight was canceled with mechanical issues to the plane."
Pros: "New crew"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delayed several hours waiting on a part to fix the engine. The aircraft was too warm. I sweated the whole flight."
Pros: "Length of flight."
Cons: "We were kept in the airport for hours on end without being informed our flight was cancelled. Something was wrong with the plane and then by the time it was fixed the crew had times out. We were given no information, the delays just kept increasing and increasing. We had to fly out the following morning which made things very inconvenient for getting rides from the airport and getting to work on time."
Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Luggage was not in Birmingham for the flight until next day in the afternoon"
Cons: "Barely enough room to hoist your baggage in the overhead bins"

Cons: "There was no problems flying from Charleston to Dulles"
Pros: "Being able to leave on my desired day."
Cons: "This would have been my first time on this airline ans I was excited going into it with ano open mind. However as I was getting ready to head to the airport, my flight was canceled and they rebooked for another flight that would leave the next day with a 3 to 4 hour layover. I was frustrated with the flight selected and therected seemed to be no effort into suiting me with an equivalent flight in which I purchased, which was a direct flight. I spoke to a reap that found a flight on another airline, but it still was not a direct flight in which I requested. For this being my first impression I was not impressed!"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No wifi on small plane"
Pros: "Staff was courteous, and explained situation clearly."
Cons: "After booking my flight two months prior and checking in 12 hours earlier, I was not allowed to board the plane because United had overbooked. Thus forcing me to fly to Charlotte then Newark at a 5 hour delay. There was also no drink for those in my row during a two hour flight from Charlotte to Newark."
Cons: "Significant delays, minimal information."
Pros: "There were open seats!"
Cons: "Delayed a little because of weather. No big deal."
Pros: "It was a direct flight. Great leg room."
