When we checked in at Calgary- there were only 3 people intially. Then, 2 left and only 1 old man was left. He tried to move through the line, but could not clear us fast enough. About 50 people were stuck and not able to get boarding passes or luggage checked. We missed out flight. The scene was chaotic. Then, those of us who missed the flight were not able to get help as he was now trying to get the next people on the SLC flight through. We were so upset. Poorly run.

Was late getting out of the gate so missed our connection in Atlanta

Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the flight attendants Keddie deserves praise for bringing me snacks even after the main serving was over when I was sleeping."
Cons: "Boarding at JAC was done by walking to plane. Signage for the correct plane was absent, and some passengers were erroneously trying to board the wrong aircraft."
Pros: "Snacks and entertainment were great and the flight was timely"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Crew from Washington to Cancún were extremely rude"
Cons: "Smile"
Pros: "My flight arrangements were not found I had to purchase new tickets and spend additional money for something I had already paid for I wasted all day and it was the worse experience ever."
Cons: "Refund my money back"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and had great personality. They anticipated any needs we had."
Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."
Pros: "The plane was nice"
Cons: "I’m still sitting in Minneapolis so I would have liked to be at my destination. And I had to pay for the overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wish the seat was more comfortable. Landing was jittery and bumpy."
Pros: "The flight attendant from IAD to MSP called Bernadette was wonderful!"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "free movies on the flight"
Cons: "The check-in process at SFO airport was poorly managed."
Pros: "great flight attendant"
Pros: "Super comfortable seats. Lots of movie options."
Cons: "Food was not very good"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"
Pros: "Quiet trip"
Cons: "Crowded seating"
Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"
Pros: "The professionalism of staff"
Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."
Cons: "Tv"
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "Timely, organized, polite staff and pilots. Delta gets 5 stars all around."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working but we were informed so not really a negative just an observation."
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."
Pros: "Seating"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Cons: "Direct flight, on time arrival"
Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"
Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "The nice Pilot that did show was a gem!"
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"
Cons: "It's just a really small plane so the comfort isn't great but only a half hour flight"
Pros: "Nice selection of in-flight media Ahead of time arrival"
Cons: "MSP baggage service was probably the longest delay I have ever experienced w Delta~40 minutes. (Overshadows the ahead of time arrival). Also, I had an oversize item-ski bag-which for some reason they did not deliver through the designated "oversize baggage" door but instead put out against the wall through a side door well down the terminal from the designated door. I might still be standing there except my traveling companion walked down that way and found it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Cons: "Flight delays"
