Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."
Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "The flights were on time. The crews on both flights were friendly."
Cons: "Figuring out how to get boarding passes after seat assignment was not easy or forthcoming because I flew basic economy, especially on my connecting flight. Having instructions on that would be helpful."
Pros: "Clean first class seat."
Cons: "My connecting flight, and the the flight not being delayed the night before."
Cons: "Plane was hot and sticky. The air from the vent was not cool."
Pros: "Yes Crew was amazing. Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "crew found me an outlet for laptop"
Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."
Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"
Pros: "Airbus was nice"
Cons: "Delayed by over 1 1/2 hours"
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"
Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early!"
Cons: "I was unable to upgrade my seat selection. Snack selections were limited regarding choices and variety."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."
Pros: "Bulkhead seating is great! Seems like food is improving... Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "Eventhough booked more than 6 mos in advance, could not find a second seat in COMFORT PLUS section! Bathrooms should be attended by flight crews more frequently! Where's the latest movies?"
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Cons: "Rapid City, I could check my BAG through to PDX."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."
Pros: "On time leaving and landing"
Cons: "Every thing went well"
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: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."
Pros: "On time with early arrival"
Cons: "Small plane Little communication from crew Security took forever to get through at RC airport"
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Pros: "Delta is the best airline by far."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("
Pros: "Amazing service!"
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."
Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."
Pros: "The moviea"
Cons: "The time of night"
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."
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: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."
Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"
Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"
Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."
Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"
Pros: "It was difficult to find something to like."
Cons: "Everything could have been better. The terminal out of Charlotte looked like a bus terminal, unacceptable for AA since it is one of their hubs. I understand it was a busy holiday weekend, but the airline should have been better prepared for our arrival. While the pilot did an excellent job in getting us in NY on time after airport delays on departure, AA must have not had enough staff working when we arrived. Customers waited over 30 minutes for bags to arrive, which arrived at a different belt than what had been originally scheduled. There were no AA staff in sight when we arrived in NY either. I will do my best not to fly AA again."
Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."
Pros: "Crew was horrible. The flight attendant was rude to clients for no reason. On a power trip"
Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"
Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Half of the screens were down. No Gluten free options."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"
Pros: "Fast and professional"
Cons: "Seats are really small, the A/C doesn’t work very well, very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"

Cons: "Old plane, no TVs"
Pros: "Well the food was very good. Which i didn't expect how good it was. And the crew were nice people."
Cons: "well we were delayed twice. One in Schiphol and the other in Philly. Wasted my time and everyone elses."
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."
Pros: "Flights to Reno tend to be empty if you fly in the right time of the week. I booked the cheapest ticket and ended up getting an exit row all to myself."
Cons: "There is no seatback TV which is a major drawback. They do have a service that you can stream through your personal device but my power outlet didn’t work so my laptop died mid movie."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the staff at LAX was cool. Everything else was ok to good."
Cons: "My checked baggage got left behind at LAX. I got it the next day."
Cons: "This was the worst flight experience of my life I will never flyAmerican again"

Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"
Cons: "Our audio did not work for movies. The food was super cheap"
Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."
Pros: "The fact that there were recently released movies in the system."
Cons: "4 1/2 hr delay in out trip. Losing our connection and rude crew."
Pros: "I paid extra for the bulkhead seats for the leg room, and it was worth it. In general, it was an easy flight."
Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"
Cons: "Four hour layover on a flight from Edinburgh to Sacramento."
Cons: "Overbooked Long lines Lost bag for my son Rude agents Absude EU 33 charge to book a seat. Bad website. Not a decent customer service. End this airline"
Cons: "Unexplained delay, more than 4 hours. Terrible"
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."
Pros: "The entertainment screens and the new seats in business class were very nice"
Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."
Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"
Cons: "Gate changes were confusing. Staff unprepared and upset with customers. I witnessed a gate agent yelling at customers and slamming phones down."
Pros: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."
Pros: "Everything about the 787. Very comfortable and pleasant"
Cons: "Again, United is not enforcing its own COVID restrictions. That’s gotta stop"
Cons: "Stewardess was mean when I asked for a mask"
Pros: "I really love Hawaii it was beautiful."
Cons: "It was perfect"
Cons: "There was no lunch"
Pros: "Weather delays and the Boeing 737 problems a little out of their control. Some things could have done better, but some good employee efforts."
Cons: "Small planes are subpar.. Food useless. Baggage fees. When things go bad you're on your own."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Service could be better. Bathrooms need to be clean periodically. Your cut back of restrooms - sucks. I guess the offer of free drinks and a small snack is all United can offer for the price we pay."
Pros: "If the food is offered free as part of the fare. The food is roughly $12.00 or whatever price. That should have been added to the fare we are paying for the flught."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "One syaffmemberrude butall not very friendly orhelpful no food to purchase on board which meant we had absolutely nothing to eat until landing not good when ad ertise that you can purchase on board also paid 50 dollars for checked bags but ihadconfirmed with your airline theywereinyheprice along of gimethecrewwalkedpast with coffee withoutaski gif wanted one"
Pros: "Beautiful view"
Cons: "One of our bags didn’t make it. We dropped them off together. We still don’t have the missing luggage."
Cons: "No screens in seat back; WiFi not working"
Pros: "I like the food and the movies you could watch on your phone. The United app."
Cons: "Don't have a negative feedback."
Pros: "Was offered complimentary food item and I am not sure why, perhaps my Star Alliance Gold status?"
Cons: "Boeing 777 economy seating is tighter with new seating configuration."
Cons: "One crew is rude while I was ordering food while she is delivering the beverage after the order time. She simply told me they don't have what I want to order and leave. After 5 mins, I pushed the service button and nobody responded. After half hour, I ordered the food from another crew passed by. After I landed, they suppose to return my stroller set at the airplane gate. But they said it is not there, ask us to wait at the airport gate. We walked outside and they broadcasted again, I didn't hear very clearly but followed most parents to walk out. We wait at the baggage claim for almost 1 hour and finally, the baggage crew came back to the gate and found our stroller."
Pros: "Cell phone holder and power outlets that actually work"
Cons: "Basic economy pricing"
Cons: "Crew was not visible Seat space was very tight"
Pros: "Getting home safely!!"
Cons: "Bathroom smelled terrible after multiple passengers made a BM! Should be cleaned and deodorant spray should be available. Had to use some body spray and cologne to neutralize the smell."
Cons: "The seating, being separated from my wife!"
Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"
Pros: "They upgraded me and it was very comfortable. Didn't know till I was going on the plane. They sat me in the exit row and I'm very capable of doing what's needed in an emergency."
Cons: "Seats weren't as roomy as the newer plane and noisier."
Pros: "All the crews are very friendly,service was great!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Ay a connecting gate too far away!"
Pros: "came early..."
Cons: "We could not take water with us to plane, traveled with kids 8 and 10. Did not get water even though I asked few times....kids started crying to get some water.....what is with the system??"
Cons: "Didn't really like the food plane that was offered, seating are so uncomfortable, had a child crying the whole way, wifi didn't work, there was a magazine in my sitting area with ink where I got ink on me, board was late"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."
Cons: "They didn't have the food I wanted by the time they got to the back of the plane"
Cons: "Basic Economy fare will flag at the kiosk for check-in. I'd rather have a warning to indicate no Carry On bag allowed, and flag at the gate for them to check. Both legs of the trip caused an extra 5-10 minutes to wait for help to proceed"
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Pros: "The overall rating of the trip was positive, however, the staff at times was very disrespectful and unhelpful."
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "It was not overbooked and had plenty of space"
Cons: "Wifi and food prices were a little too expensive"
Cons: "Ever since gas prices went up to 5 a gallon years ago, the airlines started charging for food, checked bags etc etc. Now that gas prices have come down, the airlines still charge for said items. Totally LAME"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of preparedness before taking off from each stop."
Pros: "Free drinks. Soft ones of course, but not something you can count on anymore. And very pleasant accommodating staff. Also very on time."
Cons: "Simply, EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "The food being offer was good"
Cons: "The experience as a whole was rather disappointing"
Cons: "No free meals"
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
Cons: "United lost my checked in baggage and the customer service was so terrible and no one was helpful nor even cared. United totally ruined my trip."
Pros: "Delayed 3hrs due to awaiting the aircraft. Was given the option to change flights with no more flights to HNL tonight"
Pros: "We flew in comfort the entire trip! Plenty to drink and eat. Too much actually. The business class cabin was clean, seats ample and comfortable. It definitely made the 6-7 hours of flying more bearable."
Cons: "Poor wifi service."
Pros: "It was on time, the landing was beautiful!!"
Cons: "Selection of snacks were not appealing."
Pros: "Small airport, comfortable seating, polite crew"
Cons: "Snack wasn't my style"
Pros: "I liked the variety of movies offered."
Cons: "On the trip going to Venice, I was unaware to download the United App to watch movies on board, so there was 5 hours of nothing. Wish I had known earlier."

Pros: "I liked when I got home 12 plus hours later than I was supposed to!"
