Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew did a great job and I enjoyed the movies."
Pros: "The flight attendants have so much patience, it’s amazing. Because passengers are idiots."
Cons: "Do you really need to charge every person to pick their seat?"
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "The staff handled the situation very well."
Cons: "The delays put me arriving at 4am. Missed a half day of work, and was practically useless the last half of the day. I understand things go wrong, but they blamed the weather and the other airlines were getting planes in and out just fine. Even Frontier Airlines at least offers a meal voucher for del"
Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "Left A bag behind in NY"
Pros: "Flight attendants thank SkyMiles members by name at some point during the trip, very friendly."
Pros: "The flight attendees were nice and attentive. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "The boarding crew was less than pleasant and had an attitude. They changed my assigned seat and when I asked why, they rushed me to board offering no explanation except “your seat is no longer available”."
Cons: "We experienced a one hour ground delay at Sea-Tac which was unrelated to our airline. The pilot kept the passengers informed with timely updates, and we finally departed about when the pilot predicted we'd get away."
Pros: "Seats were narrow and we were shoulder to shoulder. Plane was clean and all was on tkmr"
Cons: "Roomier cabin"
Cons: "1. Board the plane from back to front! It is ridiculous the way it is currently done. 2. Get people to announce boarding who speak CLEAR English. 3. Further limit carry-on luggage."
Pros: "VERY small plane and small narrow seats"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Pros: "The flight was not crowded and plenty of flight attendants offering service throughout flight Also smoo5h flight."
Pros: "The plane was very clean! We loaded in the center which made everything go quicker. I was one of the last on board and there was ample overhead storage. Complimentary snacks were were substantial and service was constant. I hate going to the bathroom on the plane and it was so roomy for airplane bathrooms. The pilot was hilarious!"
Cons: "Only complaint was nothing that can be changes. I had a middle set and it was quite cramped...my computer didn’t fit on the tray or would get smashed when the person in front of me reclined."
Pros: "I liked that military boarded first."
Cons: "I think disabled US Veterans should board with active duty and retired military"
Pros: "Everything was really great"
Cons: "I can’t no say anything bad"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants"
Pros: "Boarded fast"
Cons: "Woman next to me with crying baby didn’t care that her baby’s head and arms where pretty much in my seat the whole flight. And the girl in front of me was wildly dancing the whole flight in her seat with headphones on and she get pushing back in her seat hitting my knees And every announcement the flight attendant made during the flight sounded like he was stoned and obviously didn’t care what he was saying"
Pros: "I bought my ticket about 3 months ago. At my check-in at AMS they said that! DELTA now charges for the 1st bag. Total (unpleasant) surprise. Will I be charged on my RETUTN FLIGHT?"
Cons: "I bought my ticket about 3 months ago. At my check-in at AMS they said that! DELTA now charges for the 1st bag. Total (unpleasant) surprise. Will I be charged on my RETUTN FLIGHT?"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and personable. Beverage service was consistent and efficient. Entertainment and free WiFi messaging were great perks."
Cons: "The positives don’t even come close to offsetting the misery of Delta’s seats. I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so cramped and uncomfortable. I’m not an abnormally large man - 6 feet 200 lbs - and there was no room for my legs or my shoulders in an “upgraded economy” seat. I fly weekly for work on another major airline, and only took this one in a crunch. But I am quite certain this was my last Delta flight and I’ll be advising others similarly. The service and entertainment aren’t sufficient to mask an awful seat configuration."
Pros: "Being able to watch movies"
Pros: "We got before time scheduled"
Cons: "We paid full price and we got a service like Low cost flight.they ask us to pay for first luggage When we paid more then 800 Dolar to flight from México to New York"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants on this flight."
Pros: "The plane, the seating, and the service was outstanding, great entertainment setup with the movies."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Media kept freezing. They had to reboot the system several times."
Cons: "Bought a brand new suitcase and Delta staff broke one of the wheels!"
Pros: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"
Pros: "On time with early arrival"
Cons: "Small plane Little communication from crew Security took forever to get through at RC airport"
Pros: "Great and friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Left a bit late."
Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."
Pros: "Personnel were pleasant and welcomeing at the gate and onboard."
Cons: "Service overall and pleasant disposition of the crew."
Pros: "When deplaning in Denver, I was impressed that the captain was the staff who got behind my wheelchair and offered to push me up the walkway :)... New aircraft, kind staff, shorty flight!"
Cons: "Nothing disappointed, butt i didn't have any good besides pretzels."
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Pros: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Seats were reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process was ok (they bused us over to the plane and then had us walking out halfway to the plane's stairs before frantically sending us back on the bus because the plane wasn't cleaned yet). Not a big deal but we were traveling with a 10 month old so miscommunications like that cause a larger inconvenience than usual. The real downer on the flight was when we needed hot water quickly to warm our infant's bottle. The stewardess had begun beverage service and was about 8 rows away from us. My wife hit the call button, expecting the stewardness to come over somewhat quickly. Instead, she just continued beverage service and got to us about 15 mins later. By that point it was too late and the baby was wailing from hunger. When we asked why, knowing that we had a small child, the stewardness didn't just push the cart forward and attend to us more quickly, she said she didn't want to do that. No apology, not even a sense of remorse. At the end of the day, a customer's experience will always be tainted by poor service and that is what we received on our flight."
Cons: "I have never been to Billings, so I find it rather difficult to review this flight that I have never been on."
Pros: "2 seats by windows, rather than 3, and the roominess plus ease of using the media tv screen and options. the beverage options and food options were plentiful as well as good quality."
Pros: "GRU to ATL to LEX - all was fine. The plane from GRU to ATL was one of the nicer jets I have ridden in. The ratings above reflect my overall trip of going to Sao Paulo and returning to Lexington, even though the first part had to be re-booked on United."
Cons: "LEX to ATL to GRU did NOT happen because the LEX flights were delayed to the point of missing the ATL connection. While Delta re-booked me on United, my flight arrived 3 hours later than scheduled (so transportation plans had to change), my bag did not successfully move from the Delta flight to the United flight (and was thus delayed in getting to GRU) AND once the bag was received, 4 shirts had been stolen. While a delay/theft claim has been filed with United, this could all have been avoided if the Delta flights had been on time."
Cons: "Completely threw our afternoon plans and next day on their head because of the flight delays. Not cool."
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."

Pros: "Delta is truly a great airline. Trips were on time. Clean seats and great people!"
Pros: "Flight crew were excellent and very helpful with my kids."
Cons: "When I arrived at my destination, my bags did not make it with me. When I called in the morning, they said they would not be out for delivery until 11:30 am and had a 6 hour delivery window. I told them to hold the bags and I would pick them up myself."
Cons: "Plane was late. Took forever to inboard since they didn't prepare for a handicapped flyer. The plane sat on the runway and taxied for over an hour and the flight crew never gave any updates to the passengers."
Cons: "Had to cancel. Delta will not refund and makes it near impossible to book another flight!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "They were ensuring everyone wore the requirements of masks on the flight or you didn't fly."
Cons: "There was no social distancing on the flight due to it being full. We had to switch out planes which caused an hour delay. No food and no one came for trash which I just left my empty cup on the seat. No flight attendants came through during the duration of the flight. The Wifi didn't work but I didn't need that for once."
Cons: "Seat choice flexibility, but it was basic economy..."
Cons: "It could have been cleaner. I wiped the arm rest with my disinfectant wipes and that arm rest was dirty! I wiped everything else around me. Not clean at all"
Pros: "Absolutely positively nothing."
Cons: "Everything literally!! Plane down for maintenance, rebooked four times and not willing to spend 48 hours in an airport due to incompetence. Never flying American Airlines. Will use Delta from now on."
Pros: "Everything was great. I especially liked the enter active map that showed some towns and lakes we flew over and the speed and elevation of the aircraft."
Cons: "More details on the map, for example, show landforms, mountain ranges, major roadways, rivers, etc."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment and WiFi was great."
Cons: "The food could’ve been better"
Cons: "Poor they lost my luggage. They did not allowed me to take my suitcas whit me because the plan was too small. I never travel again whit amercan airlines"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."
Cons: "Flight crew was an hour late to the flight, whereas customers were waiting for far longer than that."
Pros: "The new plane!"
Cons: "Hmmm, everything. First we didn’t get the seats we selected, then we had to pay an extra 800 for my family to sit together. Took about an hour waiting on the tarmac. Then to top it off American Airlines broke my stroller and NO apology. Never again with a third party site or American Airlines"
Pros: "Lost my bags"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no entertainment at all, no even TV."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, the boarding was super quick and the whole flight was great and comfortable. Friendly crew members. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I paid for a more comfortable seat around US200 (16L) the day prior the flight, main cabin window seat with more space.They changed planes I guess and row 16 was gone so the assigned me another one on main cabin aswell with more space (15J) but an aisle, which I hate and that was the reason why I paid for a window seat in the first place. No effort to get me a window seat within main cabin when I claimed, nor reasonable explanation on why they did the changed."
Pros: "The flight delayed 6 hours."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo at the check in desk. Our flight was delayed for 2 hours but the friendly staff made it easier to deal with the delay!"
Pros: "The screens for every seat are a lifesaver for traveling with young kids. We were well fed and comfortable for the flight."
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled shortly before take off and we were forced to accept a flight that was longer travel time and got us home later."
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"
Pros: "The staff were fine and boarding went relatively smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was dated and small. There were no individual screens for entertainment. I've flown internationally with American before and felt this specific experience was worse."
Cons: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."
Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Slow and confusing boarding process"
Cons: "They run out of food in Business Class. Service was the same as in coach."
Cons: "Flight was four hours late departing. Pretty much ruins the whole flight."
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours!

Pros: "Cheap. Easy. Got me to my destination"

Pros: "The food was ample and delicious. The stewardess was very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I had a very difficult time adjusting my reclining seat. It gave new meaning to physical comedy. Anothers' seat locked up all together and an attendant had to play with it for a long time to get it to an upright position. Another woman's phone slipped back under the cushion and she had a most difficult time retrieving it."
Pros: "The touchscreen was pretty awesome"
Cons: "Loud passengers"
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."

Pros: "I know AA and Alask are same company but I bought Alaska ariline ticket and everything I need to deal with is AA. It's too confusing."
Cons: "Too confused!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Then we all were told to re-ticket at customer service. Waited on the line for 2 hours to get a stand by ticket for the next flight. Luckily I was the second from the last that got the seat, or else I would have to wait for the next flight which would take even longer than just drive to Vegas myself. I asked customer service to accommodate me with some food coupon since I had to wait for the next flights...they said they don't have that kind of accommodation, really?!!!"
Pros: "The crew was responsive and very friendly."
Cons: "Not sitting for an hour on the runway with no A/C."

Pros: "It went very well considering the route was stormy. Yes, it was a bit “rough” at times but not too much. Shows the great skills of the pilot & besides he made us aware of the storms & possibility of the ride."
Cons: "Rebooking through united was a nightmare"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and worked well together."
Cons: "Small delay before takeoff."
Pros: "Nothing. Plane was late."
Cons: "Everything. Rude crew. Not allowed to use restroom."
Pros: "Landed safely. The stewardess was very nice and engaging."
Cons: "My plane took off late from Wichita, and missed departure to LA in Denver by five minutes. Despite their being several of us, they didn't hold the plane. It's 7:39 before I'm guaranteed a make up flight because I'm told by customer service that united flies fewer flights during holidays periods despite being the busiest season of the year. United did nothing to make up for the night with family they have taken from me on vacation."
Pros: "Everything good"
Pros: "I like the crews."
Cons: "The united airlines don't design for international flight Not enough foods at all."
Pros: "Staff were very polite and courteous. Friendly and kind. The flight was on time and smooth. I really enjoyed my time and the stewardesses were awesome."
Cons: "I really don't have any response to this question. I didn't have any food or entertainment due to my choice so I really appreciate the crews overall performance."
Pros: "Great flight!!!"
Cons: "Why does the airport have so many flights coming in at the same time that you can't deplane as soon as you touch the ground? Feels like someone doesn't know what they are doing! Very frustrating! I was late to my event due to this!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat I have ever ridden on a flight. My back and posterior were in pain for over a day after the flight. Terrible treatment of passengers to pack a few more people in like cattle. Thinnest seats I have ever seen that felt and looked like hard plastic. This was an Embraer 175 jet...will never fly on one of these again. Had a hard landing in excellent weather. Flew the same route back to Charlotte on an American Airlines A320...these seats were comfortable and the landing was smooth even with a 20mph crosswind."
Cons: "Took too long to get baggage"

Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues at all"
Cons: "My experience would be fine except when I went through security and they checked my luggage, they opened my suitcase in front of everyone and riffled through my clothes out in the open. I don't care that they needed to go through my bag, I care that there was no concern for privacy."

Pros: "Flight from Calgary to Chicago was excellent!"
Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"
Cons: "It was awful. Flight was delayed for 3 hours because united couldn't get a pilot here who was even coming from a warm weather destination so weather shouldn't have been a problem. Poor planning. There was another flight I tried to get on but they couldn't seem to locate their flight attendants and it was delayed about 6 hours."
Pros: "It was without any trouble and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Everyone was great helped me make my flight on time and great service."
Cons: "Flight attendant, LaToya, was the rudest I've ever encountered on United. Didn't greet anyone, basically slammed drinks down on the tray tables, didn't say goodbye to us when departing, and was overall very unpleasant. Could tell she didn't want to be there."
Pros: "Good time of day flight"
Cons: "Very cramped small plane"
Pros: "Everything smooth and on time."
Pros: "I liked how new and clean the plane was, and how orderly all aspects of the flight were."
Cons: "It has always seem really counterproductive to load the front of the plane first. All five of us said the same thing. Really dumb, so what....... if we were to have paid more money for first class. It would be faster. No need to wait for someone to get their bag in the overhead for so long."
Pros: "Crew professional"
Cons: "Unhappy that my luggage didn't make it"
Cons: "Ac didn't work on ground. Not tall enough."
Pros: "The crew kept us up to date on the ATC delay."
Cons: "Weather in the DEN area and Eastern Colorado generated a ground stop in DEN delaying our departure from ICT for about 2 hours. Even with the overall delay in DEN my SMF flight was long gone putting me on a late flight into SMF. This of course lead to a short night's rest...just another day of travel on the airlines."
Pros: "It's always worth the extra money to fly United! I love this airline."
Cons: "Too warm in flight. Did not run Ac enough."
Pros: "The flight attendants gave a full can of soda vice pouring into one single cup."

Cons: "All flights should have free wifi and power hookups. Greyhound does this, why shouldn't united."
Cons: "Arrived SIX hours late, did have luggage which was nice."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Not enough room, need more overhead baggage room"
Pros: "Everyone at the Wichita airport were very friendly - especially the TSA personnel. Everything moved quickly and efficiently. Plus the airport itself is so beautiful and easy to get around in. Took us less than 30 minutes from parking in shuttle parking lot to going through security to getting to our gate!"
Cons: "Plane late leaving Chicago due to no pilot."
Pros: "Was a very good service; thanks to all"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. I was traveling with a baby and there was no gate agent anywhere to be found to help us get re-routed after the delay caused us to miss our connection. Terrible experience with United."
Pros: "Everything went well and was on time"
Pros: "ease of ordering by phone"
Cons: "In front of the exit row so weren't able to recline seats"
