Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Boarding went very smoothly and the flight left on time. Baggage was very quick when we arrived in Seattle as it was already coming out when we arrived in the baggage claim area."
Cons: "I would have like to have been offered disinfectant wipes to use on the food tray. Otherwise it was a perfect experience."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "As always, the seats in basic economy are as small as possible without actually being standing room only. I'm 5'7" and my knees are only about an inch from the seat back in front of me."
Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."
Cons: "It was fabulous as always! Thank you. I love Delta!"
Cons: "No option to watch movies"
Pros: "Flight was on time out of JFK, and quick and easy to board. We took off on time and landed 30 minutes early. This is was a great trip, and I love Delta."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "crj900 from BUF-MSP is a wreck. worn out, uncomfortable seats, cold air coming from floor toes were numb for about 20m after flight. Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, lost comfort+ upgrade I paid for. No excuse for pitch in main cabin on 737-900 ER."
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Delta was ordinary"
Pros: "Kind staff, comfortable seats, movies, easy flight - pretty much everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing- it went very smoothly."

Cons: "Landing was very rough and flight crew kept bumping me with food cart during sleep"
Pros: "Crew were great, on time, helpful, friendly."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."
Pros: "Sat in the Key West airport for five hours because of delays. Somehow the other airlines managed to get their people on and off the island. Although they say they can’t land in a 25 mph crosswind we were watching the weather. It mostly stayed below 20 mph for hours before departure"
Pros: "We had exit row seat, most uncomfortable ever, video devices both broken. Will never sit in exit row again would have been better off in basic economy"
Cons: "Fix broken seats and tv screens"
Cons: "I understand when weather is rough not moving the beverage carts but a small bottle of water would be appreciated."
Pros: "Excellent flight with efficient service. Flight was on time and friendly staff"
Pros: "The flight attendants was very rude & keep harassing me about my emotional support dog, I was a real animal hater, the complaint is to long to list here, never experienced such a rude flight attendant in all my years of flying , I filed a official complaint with delta."
Pros: "The Delta service desk was great! We wanted to get an earlier flight home and the Delta Rep got us on standby quickly and with a smile."
Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."
Pros: "I earned miles for it."
Cons: "It was an old 767 that either needs to be gutted and redone, or sold to FedEx for cargo. The entertainment systems were relics from 2002, and barely worked. USB port, nope. Then they ran out of food and booze (wine mostly), so they made the nonrev employees go without, which was awkward gif the rest. But the kicker was that they lost my luggage. I told them that it hadn’t been boarded ten minutes prior to pushback. The Venice folks were very excited to be able to show me exactly where they list it (because of the RFID bag tags)... doesn’t do me much good... 10 miles away or 10,000 miles away, I still don’t have my “stuff”"
Pros: "My upgrade and breakfast were fabulous!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed several times and had to rebook. Total delays were > 6 hours."
Cons: "Delta seats in Economy are smaller (narrower) compared to their competitors."
Cons: "1/12 hours late had to change out equipment"
Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
Pros: "Nice flight and good staff and service"
Cons: "Delayed, for close to 6 hours and missed our connection"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Cons: "The most horrible experience. Pathetic to say the least. No water in the flight lavotries. Such a pathetic service from so called top airline."
Cons: "No help with baggage when boarding the plane, they hurry you up for nothing, because we had to wait 20 mi utes to take off."
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Pros: "to their Diamond Medallion customers"
Pros: "Service was excellent in spite of the terrible weather conditions. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "The airline did not disappoint and the customer service were very professional"
Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
Pros: "Avg flight"
Cons: "They changed my seat to a worse one without any explanation. I picked my seats on line for a reason and dont like them changed. Older MD series plane from AUS to ATL."
Cons: "Delayed because the airline misschdduled the pilots!! We had to wait for pilots to come to the plane... while one the plane"
Pros: "Delta does a great job overall. We used free skymiles from Amex and it was very much appreciated."

Cons: "Turbulence was pretty bad both flights."
Pros: "Return trip was 30 min ahead of schedule"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay getting to NYC"
Pros: "The crew was nice but seemed super stressed out."
Cons: "The plane was old, no entertainment was provided, tight space with little leg room and our plane departed late."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."
Pros: "lte leaving Houston, cancelled flight back from Atlanta, reset to 3 hrs later, wound up leaving 12 hrs later."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable"
Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather. That is understandable. However the crew was not helpful in sharing any information with customers about changes to connecting flights. Much time was wasted and I had to reschedule my flight. The staff members that booked my hotel and my new flight were short and brief and not very helpful or accommodating or informative. Overall I didn’t not feel like a welcomed guest and I do not feel enough compensation was offered for such an inconvenience. Not being able to have my bag overnight was a hassle. I had no clean clothes and had to throw out my contacts because I had no solution. I also couldn’t use the meal voucher they gave me because everywhere in the airport was closed by that time. No stipend was given for toiletries or food delivery. Very unimpressed."
Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was like herding cattle. Everyone blocked the stairs. A frustrating mess."
Pros: "this flight was canceled!"
Cons: "Instead of taking my one half of one ounce plastic cup half-full of wine, the stewad, allowed me to keep it. I love common sense."
Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "Great crew - good attitudes."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour due to a log book issue."
Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Pros: "- entertainment - smooth boarding"
Cons: "- very small airplane for a 6 hour flight - no comfort seats"
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Pros: "New 787, beautiful inside."
Cons: "Uncomfortable in economy, seats very cramped, difficult to eat the meal."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "3 hours late flight- customer care very insensitive and unhelpful"
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Cons: "The gate changes...........and no information in 3 hour delay"
Pros: "Free in-flight entertainment. Like that in-flight entertainment is available on users device, rather than screens in headrests. Staff were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Flight delayed d/t computer glitches and problems in NC. Once we eventually boarded, we were forced to check our carryon luggage d/t lack of space."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled with zero notice and I almost ended up on a 18 hour layover which would have resulted me in missing work. The staff was very unsympathetic and not helpful. There were 10 people behind the counter and nobody could help us. They were all just spacing out. Ultimately, I was placed on the flight, but had to rush to every single one of my four connecting flights. I am a frequent traveler but this is by far the worst experience I’ve ever had. Avianca should be embarrassed to be associated with star alliances."
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "Fast trip!"
Cons: "We were delayed because of a broken tray table and then the broken tray table was mine. But we made it, and the flight was good, so it was fine."
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "Cold air blowing in my face that whole trip, crew didn't help"
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"
Pros: "Everything, crew, plane was clean, service was better than the previous international flight. Nont"
Cons: "Diverted and delayed. Got home 8 hours later then I should have."
Pros: "good timing"
Cons: "Austrailia not accepting global pass ? or is it Quantis"
Pros: "Good flight overall"
Cons: "The experience at DFW was terrible- long lines to get out of baggage claim because of too few agents to process 1000 people waiting. Also long lines for TSA screening to get to gate."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, helpful, flight was on time, seats were comfortable, worked with me to sit next to my wife. The meal and one of the snacks was really good."
Cons: "Bag drop process at CDG was long and confusing, but the staff were doing all they could to help us get through it. Bravo to them. The food could have been a little healthier (a little too much of it was high in sugar)."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Pros: "Why would a jet this size wobble all the way across the Atlantic! The pretzels were even stale, and they served a "pizza" that was a stale mini loaf with sauce and a little mozzarella. People were starving when breakfast was served. The thermostat fluctuated from horribly hot to freeing - for 14 hrs. The crew slammed things down on table trays, grumped, were giving harsh orders to patrons rather than gently directing them. These ladies do not enjoy their job. I am done with Delta. We were also an hour late taking off due to a door on a cargo hold not closing. I was embarrassed that our Aussie friends experienced this as their first American flight."
Cons: "Food, attitude of flight attendants, comfort of cabin. Pilot took charge of thermostat issue and kept us informed in a friendly manner regarding the status of our take off and flight progress."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "I would like to be able to let the passenger next to me to close the shade. He slept , the sun was not in his face ."
Pros: "The staff was so nice and helped me find my way around."
Cons: "Food prices a bit high when compared to buying the same thing outside the airport."
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The flight overall because we arrived early."
Cons: "The fact that we were on the plane and was not allowed to enjoy the entertainment as I did with my flight to Seattle."
Pros: "New plane, great entertainment. Good service! Clean plane ."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Crew and the fact that they lost my bag"
Cons: "How small the plane was. Not much personal space and I am a shorter person."
