Cons: "Turbulence but no one can help that"
Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."
Cons: "Very late and boarded too long before leaving the gate."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 20 Minutes, after taking off late. Arrived to my connecting gate 10 Minutes prior to scheduled departure with no delta attendants in sight and watched my plane sit at the gate and pull away with no way to get on board. Now I’m waiting unnecessarily for 4 hours on another flight."

Cons: "Unbearably hot!!"
Pros: "Food was good, boarding was fast and efficient"

Pros: "The pilot and the stewardess were very polite."
Cons: "Standing on line,it was slow cause only 1 person was help people check in. It would been better if everyone could check in with the kiosk machines. After half an hour than another person came to help. TSA move more fast cause so many people were working."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Delta assigns seats at boarding, miss when you could pick which seats you sit in. I bought my sisters ticket, hoping we would then be able to sit together but we both ended up in the middle in different rows."
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."
Pros: "The gentleman that was calling zone 1, etc etc. was amazing. I should have grabbed his name. Kept us informed and thanked us and really appreciated our business. He rocked!"
Cons: "Consumer beware - you will be lied to by people at every level. They can mess up your reservation and then not let you fly. Good luck they are big companies and you are just one person and they won’t answer a call or email you. You will lose!"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"
Pros: "The crew was amazingly helpful!"
Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."
Pros: "The entertainment unit allowed me to watch the Denver Broncos game live which helped lessen the delayed departure and uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating....too crowded!! We had a delayed departure by 30-40 minutes because of a computer download issue. Too many folks carrying carry-ons delayed boarding. I wish folks were not encouraged to go that route but to check baggage. This time of year gets even tougher with folks carrying Christmas presents and over sized personal items. Ugh. Not fun to travel this time of year."
Pros: "It was a great flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding, we even left early! Very kind crew. Flight was WAY shorter than it said on our itinerary!"
Cons: "No TVs and couldn’t get wifi to work. Small plane, slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "They have great and friend staff."
Cons: "Delta treats any passenger that isn't a member of their skymiles or anyone that doesn't purchase a seat in advance like peasants. You don't get assigned a seat until YouTube up at the airport... That's fine, not really a big deal. But because you didn't select a seat, they don't let you print or view your boarding pass on your phone, forcing you to go to the checking desk. For someone that has TSA pre check and travels alot, all that extra time adds up and can sometimes cause you to miss your flight. Because there is on "fast line" when you check-in like there is at the security check point. I only have this problem with Delta, never American airlines..."
Cons: "Felt like I was sitting in my neighbors lap!"
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Pros: "Great polite and personable crew. Quality food snacks that accompany the beverage."
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable or spacious. And the get your seat at the gate process is a little unclear"
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."
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "Left on time....arrived on time. Boarding was as good as it ever gets. Anytime you can get your carry on in the overhead bin it is a great flight."
Cons: "It wasn't easy to find what gate I had to go to. I didn't see any boards in the check in area. It was only after TSA check that I found a staff member who gave me the information. After that all went okay. The problem might have been my own....it is a big airport."
