Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "i checked my bag and did not have any carry-on. Generally, i feel i should be offered boarding before all the masses who try to carry on bags that are too large and need to be gate-checked....they clog up the ramp and aisles once on the plane (this is a general complaint that is not directed at Delta specifically...applies to all airlines)"

Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My husband and I could not fit in the seats without our shoulders being on top of each other. My shoulder was in the aisle way. I am 5’8 and my knees were up againstthe seat in front of me. Our flight from CVG to DFW had none of these problems."

Pros: "The flight left on time and landed 15 mins early. Staff was nice and attentive."
Cons: "The organization for boarding in zones."
Pros: "The flight from Dallas was on Wednesday the 8th of August. It was scheduled for a 32 minute layover, which turned into a 30 minute layover. My son, who I booked the ticket for, ran all the way to the connecting flight's gate. They'd already closed the doors, and wouldn't let him on. Consequently he had to be re-booked onto the next flight, which didn't leave until 2200."
Cons: "Did I mention that he'd taken a Greyhound bus to Dallas from Memphis on Monday the 6th of August? He got to DFW airport on plenty of time for his flight to Scotland. It should have been DFW to JFK to Glasgow. Delta cancelled his flight. Citing "weather issues." My family researched this, and couldn't find any weather issues in the North East or NY area."
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and the entertainment was not readily accessible."
Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."
Cons: "Pretzel mix was lacking in quantity and taste."
Cons: "SofinwS turned off for most of trip"
Cons: "We boarded on time and were ready to leave the gate early. Somehow the pilot and air traffic controller managed to take 1 hour for de ice and takeoff even though we were 2nd in the queue. No excuse!"
Cons: "Bullshit seating...will happily put frequent flyers next to the freaking toilets."
Pros: "Good service, more leg room than American Airlines."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "The gate crew did not change seats for my family & I to sit together (spouse, baby & I, grand parents) The flight was late leaving as the troops returning home were late. That part was ok, but they could have changed their seats so my family and i could sit together. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t have minded given they were all on their 4th flight if the day. It seemed that the gate crew was not budging. If my parents hadn’t had 2 seats together my daughter would have had to sit with a stranger. That’s not acceptable."

Pros: "Very helpful cabin help"
Cons: "No significant Gluten free/Dairy free options - just a couple of snack items, nuts and hummous & chips. A significant meal option with no milk or gluten would be wonderful"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Sometimes it’s not airlines fault. Not 100% clear on who was at fault. Toilets apparently water wasn’t working on aircraft.

Pros: "Courteous crew and staff"
Cons: "Check bags online for all flights"

Cons: "Airline change time, airport, and seat asigment of our reservation. It was only thru several calls to their reservation and talked to a supervisor was I able to straight out the big mess. This has happened before with this airline when are reservation are done months in advance. I doubt we will fly American Airlines Again."

Cons: "Noisy children."
Pros: "Departure was on time"
Cons: "Really hard seats, no phone charger outlets, on board WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."
Pros: "Flight was delayed so much that I would miss my connection so I never went and am on a new flight today on a different airline"
Pros: "Fun attendants"
Cons: "We boarded late, and due to technical issues had us stay on the plane for 30 minutes with no AC and delayed us for over 2 hours. I had a meeting and missed it. I’m also an American Airlines member and am horrified by this experience!"

Pros: "Perfect t"
Pros: "Great customer service, very friendly and helpful. Plane was very modern and high tech which made it great for our two year old toddler. The whole experience went considerably better than we expected since we did not know how our son was going to handle it. All in all we were very happy thanks to the wonderful AA staff that helped us at each stop."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, smooth flying, arrived on time"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could have been more user friendly"
Pros: "Love the direct flights from RDU to West Coast. Wish there were more cities on the list. The flight was delayed about 45 minutes after we boarded for take off. I hate sitting on planes idling. The seats are already uncomfortable, then add more time onto that to sit. But we made up the time in the air for an on time arrival. Hmmmm?"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight at dinner time and then the 3 hour time change, the snacks provided are not enough. You just have to remember to bring food on the plane and then risk annoying your fellow passengers with the food/dinner dining space. More checks of drinks would be nice too. Cost cutting measures, but minimal considering a packed flight and pretty high ticket price."
Pros: "It's not the person at the gate's fault. She tried to be very informative and kind."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 630am. It's currently 945am and I'm still in the airport. Now a new maintenance issue was found. Flying is a first world luxury with first world problems."
