Pros: "Seat comfort was average for a small jet. Bottled water was cold."
Cons: "Cabin was too warm"
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Cons: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."
Cons: "The Comfort+ seat, while it had plenty of leg room in front, had a small width-box that many Americans (being larger than perhaps they should be) will find extremely uncomfortable at best, and unable to fit in at worst."
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no a/c on tarmac for extended period because of technical issue, ancient entertainment system. Old plane with minimal overhead bin space, delayed flight"
Pros: "There is Nothing that like"
Cons: "If you allowed me to get in this flight everything would've been fine.?"
Pros: "crew was amazing"
Cons: "there was water leaking from window during landing and the food was not hot and was just bland and uncooked"
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket."
Pros: "Flight attendant Bret wen out of his way to help us locate a lost pillow."
Cons: "First flight attendant asking about the pillow she found in the aisle and kicked to the side."

Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Quite helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "The only small item is the gate size in MSP. Always a bit crowded but still departed on time so it’s not a large issue."
Pros: "Crew members were all very friendly and made the flight a nice trip as best they could."
Cons: "It would make a lot more sense for people to board from the back and window seats first so that we are not climbing over each other to get to our tiny seats."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight. Funny flight attendants. No issues boarding or deplaning."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. What’s new?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an older, smaller plane and it had more leg room. Appears I’ll have to start checking Delta to see what birds flying the leg."
Pros: "Great overall flight, as expected in Delta’s first class."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confused. Crew was excellent as usual, but seemed to stop service in the last hour. Food was good, but they ran out of my preferred option. No screen entertainment, but access to entertainment was available via the WiFi."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, great flight attendants."
Pros: "Loved having the Movie and tv options on the flight, really passed the time"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, seat assignment at gate, was very anxiety provoking. I was concerned would not get on flight."
Cons: "The flight was a Christmas gift for my mother to spend some time with her friends in Mazatlán. I heard she spent the entire day waiting at the airport as her flight was rescheduled 4 times."
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Pros: "Quick boarding, clean plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?"
Pros: "It got me home, eventually."
Cons: "Poor communication, a 6 hour delay followed by a 7 hour layover (during which we had to sleep on an airport floor because Delta couldn't offer us any hotel vouchers). Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "I was traveling for medical reasons and the Delta crew took great care of me, made sure I was at my connecting gate on time, and even put me in a better seat on the plane. Not sure if that was a coincidental upgrade, or intentional, but it was perfect."
Pros: "Good selection of movies/shows."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Cons: "On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF"
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The stewardess was extremely polite, though the pilot was less chatty (probably due to lack of turbulence during the flight). Decided to risk drinking the coffee again, and was pleasantly surprised that it actually tasted good."
Pros: "The food was good. The entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "I missed having a personal vent by the individual lights above the seats."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."
Pros: "Wonderful experience with the staff."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No entertainment Small overhead bind"
Pros: "Great crew. Good space on my exit row seat"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline, though it's considered a "premium" seat. No power either. Ticketing process was crazy - I was not able to get a seat assignment until 5 minutes before boarding. Why? And there was no explanation of the situation. I had to ask, multiple times, what was going on,before I was finally told that I was going to get on, but they just didn't know where. This could be handled much more clearly!"
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"
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."
Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"
Pros: "?"
Cons: "The seat in this plane is the narrowest and most uncomfortable I have ever encountered in business."
Pros: "On time and very smooth boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good handling of a late flight--made my connection, but without bags, and they kept us well fed and informed while waiting.."
Cons: "Of course the delay, but it happens."
Cons: "The stewards crew was very very very rude. The airplane looked like its going to come apart any minute. We could actually see rust in the wings of the airplane. I think the plane should be retired, for the sake of the flyers!!!!"
