Delta is a great airline with great options to fit travelers budget/comfort

Pros: "Middle seats were not booked. Cabin appeared very clean. Bathrooms were kept tidy. Very friendly staff. Appreciated cold drinks and the snacks."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"
Cons: "Way too cramped"
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "Boarding should be more organized"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The flight was on time and they did give free snacks! Nice change!"
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Pros: "The flight was average, but the quality of travel on Delta this year has been the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s average at best and I’m considering going back to American because I have yet to have a true Delta flight consistent with previous years, the whole reason I switched to Delta."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More seat space"
Cons: "The WiFi"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "No issues at all"
Pros: "Good movies; nice crew"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Timing"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth and the crew were helpful, efficient, and polite. There was a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered the beef tenderloin, medium. It came out extremely rare and I had already eaten some by the time I realized; the entire plate was filled with blood. I ended up sick to my stomach for the remainder of the flight. Average height to tall individuals do not fit well laying down in the seats."
Pros: "new airbus plane. great luggage bins"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The plane and flight was fine, as was the crew on board. The crew within the Salt Lake airport could have been better. Not sure if it was the gentlemans first time but overall he and the woman working the boarding were very slow and could have been more efficient. We boarded late (may be out of their control) but when we started boarding there was too much wasted time between calling up the military/people with longer boarding needs/wheelchairs etc. They waited until they were completely boarded and settled prior to calling the next group then spent time fiddling with the sign that splits the boarding lanes etc. Just appeared that there was no sense of efficiency. Polite people though."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Arrived"
Cons: "Delta changed our seat assignment and our seats sucked"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "We all were bused to the plane. And we all had to stow our carry on bags with checked luggage."
Pros: "Time of the flight"
Cons: "Space in the plane"
Cons: "They said it was late because of a tire issue that was fixed in Salt Lake causing a late departure on a round trip SLC-Burbank. It arrived back to Salt Lake late causing the Dallas flight to leave late. I got a message at 6:24 pm regarding the late departure for the 8:15 pm flight to Dallas. They knew this info hours before. It should have been communicated sooner"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Cons: "My flight was delayed over 3 hours and I have reached out to Delta and no one has called or emailed me back."
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: "I am on stand by after 24 hours. Because delta airlines was late.im stuck in LA"
Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Customer service over the phone is the worst. 30 minutes for them to pick up and then get transferred to a very rude representative."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."
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: "New schedule"
Cons: "Missed connection die to delay by lightning. Rescefuled and put us up overnite but had comfort tickets and had to fly coach and seated separately."
Pros: "new hi speed wifi, seats"
Pros: "The boarding was ok due my on pert on being able to board early. The stewards were nice, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The seats were the same size as economy. I was disappointed due to fact I traveling with a larger friend and hoped to be comfortable. So much for that idea. The snacks and monitors were limited on each flight. I felt my prices should have as well. I guess this was a learning experience for me. Now I know there is only 1st class and economy."
Pros: "Amazing service!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the movie, all else was good"
Cons: "Did nt get to finish the movie, arrived at destination early. Thank you Delta, great trip."
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "The crew addressed me by name"
Cons: "Wasn't lonng eough"
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "1. 1.5 hour delay on a 70-degree, sunny day. 2. all of the outlets in the gate area to charge devices during the delay -- and 90% of them didn't work!!!! It's almost better not to design new seating with outlets between seats, when the outlets don't work -- neither did the ones on the walls. People were lined up for the ONE wall outlet that did work."
Cons: "I don't know why delta's service has deteriorated so much in the last few years. Last two times that I flew the service and attitude at the gate has been horrible. Seat assignment has become a dread. Upgrade options are over priced. I guess I will be looking for a new airline."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "No fruit and cheese available to purchase one the flight. Need more than cookies"
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "The crew was nice. It was a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work. Very long flight to not have entertainment. No plugs for personal devices. It looked like an older plane."
Pros: "Enough said"
Pros: "Beverage choices (apéritifs, wines, etc.) were decent in coach. Plane was clean. Entertainment system was very good. Boarding was organized."
Cons: "Seat width in coach was terrible. Had a heavier person next to me and I was crowded out in my seat."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "Seat 27F is not a seat. The online system messed up!"
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "-"
Pros: "The flew crew were great!"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and on time."
Cons: "The temperature was so hot at one point I was getting sick to my stomach. Twenty minutes later I was putting on a jacket."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and friendly."
Cons: "The crew announced that there was limited food options on the flight (low supply). When a flight is 5 hours long, an adequate amount of food options should be available. Hand towels and toilet paper ran out during flight."

Cons: "Again the layover was 16 hours-AWFUL."

Cons: "Service was curt and there was only phone-based entertainment."
Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "The crew was sensational. Everyone really loved working for American, which tells me it's an employee sensitive and supportive company, and that is reflected in their attitude which is what makes my trip so pleasant. I love the darkening windows - great for daytime flying back from Europe when the whole plane becomes tranquil! Food was very good on this flight! Pilot spoke very clearly and was very informative."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Ensured that the connecting passengers boarded the flight."
Pros: "Nothing, they’re awful."

Cons: "every time I flight I get less and less soon they are going to be charging for the air we breath in the plane"
Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."
Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"
Pros: "On time, good food, good entertainment and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Quick boarding and luggage pickup."
Cons: "Mediocre staff. In my experience United is more friendly and welcoming."
Pros: "Poor attitude. Seemed as though they were doing us a favor serving us. Did not pick up garbage for at least an hour. Absolutely zero personality"
Cons: "I do not like flying American. Still sitting and waiting on my flight to Waco"
Pros: "Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, God food, pleasant flight."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding is terrible at DCA for commuter flights. You get on a bus packed in like sardines and the stand there for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Companion in flight nice Korean girl... We chatted trough all flight time"
Cons: "Arrived and luggage did not arrive and had to open a claim and had to go back to pick my luggage next day, not pleasant considering I live in Juarez Mexico and had to cross the border all tired and fed up with this incident"
Pros: "Ground delay but we still got there in time and I made a close connectionshort flight"
Pros: "They passed out headphones for the entertainment early in the flight. The meal service was efficient and more than adequate. The fight also arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "My flight was great! Pilot did an amazing smooth landing"
Pros: "The flight was early morning so the plane was basically empty. And the flight was short due to short distance and tail winds. Crew is always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane seats are EXTREMELY cramped. We were early but had to sit for 15 minutes waiting for the plane in our spot to leave."
Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."
Pros: "Other than a 2 hour delay due to a mechanical issue (identified after everyone boarded) the flight was ok. No electical connections for equipment. That would be an improvement. Also, out of a lot of meals that people request, and that was at the beginning of service in the premium seats."

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 15 min"
Cons: "Taking a flight on American Airlines when I booked one on Alaska was confusing. Not clear disclosed at the time of purchase. And hard to notice on conformation email."

Cons: "None"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "It was fine"

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

Didn't like anything if I'm honest No in flight entertainment No food or drinks Apart from a complementary small bottle of water and cereal bar Seats not very comfy Will stick with Turkish Airlines from now on There a lot better

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Cons: "stuffy staff, not helpful, horrible seating - definitely don't see things from customer point of view. Will never fly BA again"
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Clean efficient on time Nice staff"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Cons: "Lost my luggage. Must wait and buy new ticket to proceed to Bergen and may miss boat"
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Cons: "Not quite a nice breakfast."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Pros: "Timely."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "This short flight had no food. I guess that is acceptable"
Cons: "I was hungry but there was nothing to eat"
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."

PlusPoints are useless if seats are so rarely available.

Apart from the delays in terms of departure times, the airline experience was so bad, given the medical incident from a passenger sitting at the back of the plane. I was so close to it, and was utterly disappointed by the failure of the cabin crew to control passengers from overcrowding the sick passenger and allow the crew to administer the necessary medical intervention. It all amounted to compromised safety at 30000 feet, and seriously more training on the part of the airline is required in this regard. The other issue I realised is lack of cleanliness and care on the part of cabin staff, with one lady spilling food next to where I was sitting and ignoring the incident completely. I had to ask another to intervene and for which only superficial help was rendered. This is not what I expected, but this is what I got and speaks volumes to a cabin crew which is all female, mature/elderly, and expected to be more hands on to problems of this nature. The food is terrible in economy class, with options very limited. I opted for chicken, but did not know that it had curry in it, so I could not eat my meal further, and so no need to ask for the vegetarian option.

There was no food or entertainment but there is no n/a option

Pros: "The flight was quick for the time we were in the air."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by over an hour. The plane is tiny so overhead space barely fits a briefcase and the seats are smaller than normal. Since this is a smaller aircraft, unfortunately that is expected."
Cons: "Working on flight schedule to be more precise! Delayed!"
Pros: "Flight convenients"
Cons: "Small plane .. I’m a y’all person.. warning when booking ticket"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "I especially like the agent at the United Lounge in Denver who changed my flight to one that left 3 hours before my original flight. Also, she arranged for my checked bag from Dayton, OH to be transferred to the new flight. I was concerned by happy to get it in Denver - actually, it was one of the first luggage to arrive."
Cons: "All was well. Thanks."
Cons: "The flight was booked through Jetfly and I tried to change the date. I ended up losing the entire ticket. No flight, no money. I talked to Jetfly at least 8 times and they kept confusing things, delaying things, and were not very helpful which caused me to miss any available flights."
Pros: "Met chief pilot at Wendy’s before flight. He was friendly and gave us confidence"
Cons: "The seats were too close together and very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "Too long for the hardness of the seats. Flight was endles."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Cons: "Make sure you have no more than2 checked bags"
Pros: "Surprisingly positive experience on United. Unfortunately for ANZ, they have to deal with UA as their "partner" stateside, as UA has a habit of always messing something up. On this flight, I was pleasantly surprised...the flight left on time and arrived early, the bags were a little slow but acceptable, and the crew was good. The only complaint is the typical lack of room on UA planes. Fortunately the flight was less than 2 hours."
Cons: "Lack of space. I have experienced worse on recent UA flights...at least this time my knees weren't actually touching the seat in front of me, and the person in front of me chose not to recline their seat so it stayed that way. The other issue with this flight was the boarding process, which was really slow. Fortunately, they towed the plane to the gate over an hour before departure and started boarding almost immediately so we still managed to leave on time."
Pros: "Plane was delayed 87 minutes because the plane had maintenance issues that the air and did not organize and plan better. For their error, I missed my client and got fired."
Cons: "The airline not getting me on the Dayton-Newark then Newark-Rochester flight so I could get to my destination on time. The agent at the airport was not helping or listening. Now I miss my client loss a lot of money for the day and I got fired."
Cons: "I think if you over 6”7 you should not be charged for an exit row on commuter planes"
Pros: "Service all crew excellent"
Cons: "Boarding tome"
Cons: "I purchased my ticket in March with seating assigned to me and then when I travel from Chicago to San Jose my seating was changed and I had to sit back in the 22nd row now I walk with a cane and so this is very was very painful for me, my itinerary said that my seating was row seven for the whole trip but when I got ready to fly home from Chicago to San Jose to- day ,so I was very uncomfortable. I did not know my seating had been changed."
Pros: "Great crew. Liked pretzels"
Pros: "I ultimately arrived at my final destination on the same day that I left, and 12 hours later instead of 36 hours later that it was looking like it'd be at the time. Crew at the gate and on the plane were wonderful. Personnel at the airport were also wonderful aside from the fact that I couldn't seem to get on the official standby list until my mother-in-law got me on by talking to personnel at a completely different airport."
Cons: "Flight was diverted due to weather and subsequently was cancelled and rebooking was a disaster. Lines and phone hold times for rebooking took an hour each time I stood in line, which was four times.Thankfully, I was on standby for this same-day flight and was able to arrive at my destination 12 hours later than planned instead of 36 hours later than planned."
Pros: "Didn't go because of high winds in Newark"
Cons: "Having to come home and try it again today"
Cons: "I was delayed each direction :/"
Pros: "Nothing really stood out to me."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for 30 minutes. The flight attendants didn't encourage those with connections to get let off first."
Pros: "I checked in online and got free TSA precheck so I didn't have to unload my bags or take off my shoes. Everything went really fast, and I was back home to my family in no time!"
Cons: "There was no way of knowing if my baggage was in the claim area as several flights were unloaded onto one belt at a time."
Pros: "Food voucher"
Cons: "Flight was delayed approx 7-8 times, 7.5 hrs. I arrived at 7:15 am for a 9:20am flight to find that it was delayed. Wasn't notified before leaving home of delay. Was given a 2 food vouchers but very late, 30 mins before boarding time. Paid for two meals already by then. My Friday to Monday trip to see my family was shortened by almost a day. I hadn’t seen them for 3 years. Don't know when I'll be able to see them next. Not happy..."
Cons: "I had to interrupt my flight and book another flight from Denver to Phoenix. Mass confusion to simply guarantee my checked bag would no continue on to Maui. I was told to keep my bag at the ticket desk in Dayton....scolded for doing so at the gate....then again scolded for same thing at gate for Denver to Phoenix. At least I kept track of my bag through it all."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "The boarding process"
Pros: "A little late taking off but was kept informed the whole time, crew/staff was friendly"
Cons: "Being required to sit in middle seat and I'm deaf so I could not see what was going on in the isle like watching the flight attendants deliver their message."
Cons: "On board service!!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2+ hours late to depart with no explanation. Multiple delay messages from United ranging from 59 minutes late to 2 hours 10 minutes late often within minutes of each other. Poor service, crowded, and very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The people all the way through, the equipment seems to be getting dated."
Cons: "Terminals were too far for my connection to toronto."
Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "Lack of legroom"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. The cockpit crew did an excellent job from start to finish. Great landing in Newark."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked by at least 10. The arriving flight delayed departure 45 minutes which almost caused a missed connection. The original time between connection was 90 minutes. By the time the first flight arrived, the second was already boarding."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Left on time. Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are cramped. Could not understand flight attendants or captain when they spoke on the intercom. Sat in one of the last rows. Didn't get to us for drink service."
Pros: "I made my travel arrangements and had plans after i had landed but had to cancel my plans due to having to get on a different flight and not landing til almost 9 pm"
Cons: "Having to change all my plans due to flight switch"
Cons: "Cabin air didn't work until we were in the air, it was easily iver 80 degrees nthere"
Pros: "Got there on time but over sold so anxiety getting on for international flight...unnecessary!"
Pros: "Pleasant help"
Cons: "Flying in general."
Pros: "Everything went on schedule and our bulkhead seats were great. Flight was smooth and got in early."
Cons: "The person giving the announcements spoke so quickly and in a monotone way that it was difficult to understand her."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tardiness and heat"
Pros: "It was a smaller plane but was roomier than the jet on the next leg of our trip!"
Cons: "Temperature in the plane was way too cold!!! I didn't rate entertainment higher because we didn't use it...we read our books."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Snack and drink selection was poor."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Delayed.. After getting on the plane late, had to wait for quite some time while on the plane to take off. Because of the delays both out of Dayton to O'Hare them from O'Hare to Atlanta I was almost a half hour late for my sons graduation. Not happy!"
Pros: "The service on the flight was great."
Pros: "No issues."

It was fun and fast

I love the entertainment. I think the food could be better

Where is my luggage???

Free food or entertainment should work

Crew members were very helpful, friendly and dedicated. The flight was punctual and inside very clean.

Pros: "The flight crew were amazing and had lovely gifts for our daughter"
Cons: "the flight was late and no food or drinks were available without paying rather high prices"
Cons: "The app and trying to find boarding details prior."
Pros: "service and timing were great"
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was pretty good (in addition to lunch/dinner, they offered multiple snacks and drink service throughout)."
Cons: "The boarding could definitely be better - customs and an additional security check before the gate was a bit much and caused the flight to depart over 15 minutes late."
Cons: "Poor organization, 2 hour line to check your bag, crowding due to lack of communication and organization at the gate, slow luggage boarding. All of which led to a 45 minute delay sitting on a hot and unairconditioned flight followed by a missed connection and 6 hour wait at the next airport. There was no entertainment inflight, so nothing there to rate. The staff were pleasant under the conditions. Nothing else was positive."
Pros: "I spent 5 hours on the phone and they didn’t help me. They couldn’t even help me the book so I just lost 700 dollars when trying to change a flight."
Cons: "Worst experience in all areas. The phones calls were brutal and no one could help me and then someone could and then they cousltnnagain. No one could find a flight. Took so long for them to look stuff up etc."
Cons: "Delays is Boarding No food and beverages"
Pros: "Nice crew and Good seat despote the âge of the aircraft"
Cons: "New screen and New aircrafts"
Cons: "Left 1h late"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Flight delays is a constant problem with this company"
Pros: "The flight and services were OK, the only bad thing - my baggage did not arrive David Silberman"
Pros: "Pleasant staff. Comfortable plane. Second leg from Brussels to Frankfurt was great."
Cons: "Check in at Manchester was a joke. No signage for Brussels Airlines to start with and no one to help. Long queue, over 1½ hours to drop a bag after checking in on line. Every other airline was way faster. Thankfully, security was relatively quick."
Cons: "Delay, nothing to eat, poor service !"
Pros: "We were delayed boarding slightly, delayed sat on a steaming gate shuttle then sat on the tarmac for a couple of hours while storms passed. But the crew gave regular updates, provided food and water, allowed us to walk about. It was as plesent as such a situation could be."
Pros: "The flight crew was accommodating and genuinely worked to meet passenger needs during the boarding process and also while I'm flight. The flight entertainment included a good, and varied set of options."
Cons: "1. There is a security check just prior to boarding at the gate in Brussels that is not known about in advance. The process is not organized, nor did I (along with other passengers) understand why another checkpoint was being unexpectedly required.. 2. The food onboard (main meal - beef and snack - calzone) were not good; although they were served hot, they were bland and unappetizing. Contrary to popular belief, not all airplane food is "bad". 3. And finally, the restrooms were not kept clean during the flight - I had never seen that on any of the nternational airlines I've taken over several years."
Pros: "We did not die."
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. Flight attendant would not take the half full cup of coffee from me about 30 minutes before landing so I had to deal with not spilling it during deplaning. Connecting flight was 1hr and 40 min and they refused to give us water! Got to Budapest to find that the ticket Agent had routed three of our 4 bags to Budapest and one to Prague! How much worse could it possibly get!"
Pros: "Excellent service. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Good flight overall- staff lovely"
Cons: "Limited food choices"
Cons: "Despite the fact that I reserved a window seat, I was assigned a seat in the middle of the center row. They also 'sanitized' the airplane twice after that closed the doors before take off. They walked up and down the aisle with aerosol spray cans. I don't think people should be subject to unknown chemicals in order for the airline to save time on cleaning the cabin before take off."
Pros: "Email and text kept me updated"
Cons: "Flight delays"
Cons: "As everyone seems to already know, the food and drink is really not very good at all and they didn't provide enough, especially considering that I was delayed by two hours in total in this trip."
Cons: "There was a long-ish and poorly organised layover in Luanda, which involved the flight crew individually identifying the carry-on luggage on the plane so as to ensure no one who had disembarked had left anything behind. This was literally done bin by bin by a crew member shouting down the aisle, "Who's is this brown bag? Who has a grey Longchamp!!!???" This is not something I have ever seen before and it took ages. The cabin also became very hot during the layover, which cause a 40 minute delayed arrival in Kinshasa."
Pros: "Smooth and welcoming boarding New aircraft Good crew with free drinks"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They have the funniest and engaging safety video I have ever seen"
Pros: "The flight attendants on the trip from Brussels to NY were more friendlier than the flight attendants on the NY to Brussels leg of the trip."
Cons: "The sandwich that was served on the Brussels to NY leg of the trip was not great at all. The seats were hard on my behind."
Pros: "Ok easy flight. Crew were great, really friendly:)"
Cons: "Seats to small, food humm? Dubious"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding. All amenities were available."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "They dropped our connection. Took 3 hours to straighten it out"
Pros: "They tried and succeeded in making flying as enjoyable and comfortable as it can be these days in economy class. Plenty of legroom. I would absolutely fly with them again."
Cons: "Really, really bad food. Also, the selection of movies could have been better. Most of the foreign films did not have English subtitles."
Pros: "The pilot was good and made a smooth landing. The seat was comfortable enough because I had a pillow."
Cons: "My checked luggage got lost on a direct flight. That is unacceptable."
Pros: "Forgot they were on 24 hour time. Maybe send an alert about that."
Pros: "The food somewhat but I couldnt enjoy it when everyone else seated where I was had better food and I couldnt have the better food because I had to order it...something that was never mentioned if it was atleast by email I wouldve ordered. Swiss airlines have emails to give you options on entertainment and everything else...follow their lead"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and moody like they didnt want to be there and took it out on the people they were suppose to give service to. One flight attendent got upset or acted a little nasty because I asked her for another custom border slip. She said was going to bring one but I guess she forgot and an atleast 30 minutes to an hour went by till I asked her again and she got nasty. The same lady along with the other flight attendants snatched trash out peoples hands like they were diseased...and they had gloves on. When it came to entertainment they didnt have much variety. Unless the price for the flight is dirt cheap or below average I would choose to fly with them again other than that I'll go to another"
Cons: "Lost my bags or did not make it on time for connection."
Pros: "I had a comfy seat at exit row. The team was great."
Cons: "Over 30 minutes delay. The luggage pickup was a mess, the belt wasn't emptied for previous flights which created a huge mess."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed significantly and led to a travel nightmare and us missing an important meeting."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and we had to spend time Waiting both in the terminal and the plane. But crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have been given a free snack or some water while waiting. We got a tiny chocolate which was nice but didn't make up for the waiting time"
Pros: "A very full flight that was managed well. Staff were accommodating and pleasant."
Cons: "I am not a fan of spicy food when flying so the snack item did not work for me. The more interesting international films were not available with English subtitles."
Pros: "The service was very very professional"
Pros: "Leg room seemed above average. Food was very good."
Cons: "Having games on the monitor is not a good idea because people are constantly pushing on your headrest!"
Pros: "Excellent staff"
Cons: "Seats had no cushioning on bottom or back"
Pros: "I loved the crew and the ease of boarding"
Cons: "I had a full day of flying, and there weren't any snacks made available!"
Cons: "Departure delayed for unspecified reasons, most of the passengers like me had connecting flights and it was stressful"
Pros: "Due to my husbands frequent flyer status, we were able to upgrade coach seats to premium free of charge - which afforded priority boarding and more comfortable seats - although, there was not much difference in legroom or general space. This flight was not full, so I had an empty seat next to me - always a good thing on a long flight. Lots of movies and entertainment available to fill up the hours. Served food and drinks constantly (3 meals plus, if I remember correctly) but the food was pretty bad. One of the bathrooms was a generous size, which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. They separated out groups but did not make clear where each group was to go, which caused unnecessary jam ups. Stewardess on this flight that served my section was rather grumpy and unhelpful. Seat in front of me was broken so it leaned way back into my lap, making it difficult to eat or read on my e-reader. I had a premium seat, but there did not seem to be any difference in leg room or the size of the seat than normal coach. Although there was several meals - the food was horrible. Best to take your own aboard. We were delayed getting off the ground, having to sit on the plane for a while before take off. We landed over an hour late."
