Airline reviews

This Delta flight was operated by WestJet .. we didn’t know until after booking. Delta advertised free baggage check however WestJet charged us a total of 120 dollars for this. This also didn’t allow us to do online check in using WestJet app as there was an outstanding fee for baggage.. I had to hold for over an hour on our outbound flight to do this. Returning was the same although we decided to physically check in early to avoid this hold time. When we checked in the agent told us we had been put on the standby list and only just made the flight. So despite prepaying for the tickets and reserving the seats we still didn’t apparently have a guarantee of being on the flight.. very concerning. He assigned us other seats and then actually had to ask us if we had paid for our baggage.. again very strange. We paid and didn’t complain as it wasn’t his fault. We did over hear other travellers with the same issue though. Airlines need to be more organized in my opinion.. apps that need upgrading and the apparent overbooking of flights makes just the journey more stressful knowing that there is a possibility that you may not get on your flight despite prepaying and reserving and paying for seating and baggage.. what is going on?

Left on time staff was awesome!

Comfortable seating and very smooth service.

The amount of issues we had with traveling with Delta and gate agents was insane. We've never had this many issues with Delta, flights, luggage, and lack of customer support from the agents. However, the flight attendants on the flight were amazing and as kind as could be.

Access to entertainment on the phone would be great!

We had only 1 suitcase allthough we were with 2 persons, and could have had 2 suitcases. Our 1 suitcase was however considered as 1 with overweight. We had to move 8 kg to our cabin luggage. That is absurd. Erik

Cons: "The exit row door in 12B kept making a high pitch squealing noise...very unnerving"
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "The boarding did not go on time. An announcement about why would have been nice. Still made it on the flight on time."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Reading lights did not power during first 40 minutes of flight. Had an aisle seat originally but after upgrading to comfort+ got bumped to a middle seat"
Cons: "Sitting in first class"
Pros: "Assertive"
Cons: "Hand out headphones, my phone doesn’t have compatibility."
Pros: "Good crew, my seat did NOT recline."
Cons: "Plane was somewhat crowded."
Cons: "Bigger plane."
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."
Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Cons: "No ear buds were offered, i had to ask and then FA forgot!!?? Snack basket was just awful choices. Captain was great I really appreciated the constant updates as our flight was 1. Hour delay on depart and also delay landing at jfk, very smooth trip"
Pros: "Nope"
Cons: "They my flight"
Pros: "Great entertainment options!"
Cons: "The seats are still too small. I also wish there were hot options for food."
Cons: "Flying from New York to Atlanta on business class there was no access to the lounge because I was not flying to Lima on the same day. I bought the whole international business ticket to Peru together, I don't understand why Delta consider my first portion not part of my international ticket!"
Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived on schedule just as it should be."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Pros: "Boarding, flight, landing"
Cons: "Baggage claim was unmanned Ground transportation was awful Delta & all Harrisburg staff was not responsive, for example w/baggage unmanned a sign said "go to ticket counter" when I got to ticket counter Delta agent didn't notice me in Sky Priority line for 5 minutes because she was texting on her personal cellphone."
Pros: "Great service by gate operators."
Cons: "TSA process"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."
Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Cons: "It didn’t take off on time"
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "On time departure; good updates by flight deck; luggage arrived unscathed."
Cons: "Once beverage service was complete, flight attendants retreated to the back of the plane. On a 4-hour flight, it would have been nice to have someone come by and ask if we needed anything, such as water, coffee, or juice. Granola bar was good."
Cons: "Due to waiting so long on the tarmac, I almost missed my ground connection. Also, two persons with impaired mobility were deplaned while nearly all the remaining passengers waited. It has been my experience in the past that those with impaired mobility are assisted in deplaning AFTER the other passengers have deplaned. This only makes sense. Also, baggage handling was slow compared with my previous experiences. Seemed to be a hard landing."
Pros: "Seats wider than on last week's flight out"
Cons: "Thought I would get better service in first class. Never did get my coffee. Totally different from my trip to Atlanta last week."
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: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "I had a guy offer me his window seat. Nice guy. It was only 2 hrs. We arrived on time. Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "It's just a really small plane so the comfort isn't great but only a half hour flight"
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "There were some delays and issues with air traffic control, but they brought out snacks after a half hour which was really nice. Overall, great!"
Pros: "Fairly comfortable and uneventful. The flight was delayed for an hour and a half, so we arrived in L.A. later than expected. The crew was excellent and friendly, Boarding was a bit crazy but in the end we all found our seat. My flight attendant was terrific. She did all she could to fix the problem to no avail, Kudos to her."
Cons: "The trip was okay. Unfortunantly my movie player quit after the first movie so I was left to reading. The coffee was horrible but the food was great. Good choices in the menu. I did get a $50.00 rebate due to the faulty video player, but seriously, what can you do with $50..00 on Delta?"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped! Cabin crew not particularly friendly."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Friendly staff, very nice airplane.

Have people at the Westjet counter

A heads up on filling in an e-ticket prior to flight departure would have been helpful.

being a flight attendant and using spécial fare I apreciate being treated equally to the other pax, the fact that the crew, when I informed them of my status, went to check if I had a good seat ( no one beside me, to be able to get good rest.) Those are important gestures towards the person. I look to more flights with KLM

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and seats were comfy."
Cons: "Headphones for the entertainment centre.could have been better. Sound quality not great."
Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "Staff, service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "captain was great."
