Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Really accommodating staff, and on flight amenities. I would fly with Delta again."
Pros: "It was nice that middle seats were not filled."
Cons: "It was silly that the flight attendant said we had to pull mask up between bites of food."

Cons: "Seat power charger didn’t work"
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Delta was ordinary"
Pros: "I liked having the entertainment system on the Minneapolis to Atlanta flight. I was able to watch the football game which made the time go by more quickly. The crew was excellent and provided good service even though I did not have any food or drinks."
Cons: "I am always dismayed by how long it takes to get passengers on the plane. Once on the plane, it also takes too much time to get passengers seated. Passengers continue to bring luggage which takes up too much space in the overhead bins and have more items than permitted. I do not bring luggage on board because it is too hard to find space and it holds up the boarding process."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The space given in the seats is just getting ridiculous. The person in front of me reclined and hit my left knee. It hurt for three days even with my doing physical therapy and exercises."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "It got delayed multiple times."
Cons: "Delay on flight and providing beverages while waiting for 6 hours"
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding"

Cons: "Well,the trouble was not the Crew or the Air Steward,but it was something wrong with the start the engine."

Pros: "WiFi and Entertainment"
Cons: "Slight delay of flight"
Pros: "Great entertainment options!"
Cons: "The seats are still too small. I also wish there were hot options for food."
Cons: "First leg the server “ran” the aisle and I missed drinks/snacks twice. Seats are rediculously in lack of leg space hip to knee area—I’m a 5’10” female."
Pros: "Gate agent inATL helped an elderly man get on board early at my suggestion.Proud of our female pilot from ATL-PHF"
Cons: "I'm so used to the nice screens with free tv games and flight tracker and really missed that on this trip. I'm glad I decided not to pay to upgrade to comfort + this trip for the first time in a long time. I was able to use my tablet for flight tracker but could only see the map and not the stats"
Cons: "The seats were very close together which made for an uncomfortable experience due my knee injury and upcoming surgery."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. No issues. Short flight. I was comfortable. The Biscoff and Ginger Ale was fine as always."
Cons: "No entertainment in the cheap seats. Free WiFi but I couldn’t connect to anything. But I had my Kindle..."
Pros: "Loved that the pilot or first officer, not sure which, came on the intercom at one point and said they were expecting turbulence ahead so if anyone needed to use the bathroom, right then would be the time to go!! Useful information and much appreciated."
Cons: "Some of the announcements by a female flight attendant were delivered at a very rapid pace and were hard to understand, and my first language is English."
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't change flights on the day of travel"
Cons: "price could be cheaper"
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving JFK. I paid extra for Comfort Plus and had the most uncomfortable seat ever. My back ached during and after the flight. Absolutely the worst seat ever that I have had flying. While it was a short flight we were supposed to get serviced during the flight, but there was no cabin service unless you were in 1st class. So much for the perks of Comfort Plus as there were none. Not even a glass of water. Wow! When we landed late obviously because we left late we were late and there was no ground crew to get our plane to the gate so we sat for over 1/2 hour on the taxi way waiting for ground crew to be available for us to get to the gate. To add insult of injury when we did get to go to the gate there was no gate available for use so we had to deplane in the rain down the emergency stairs. They said that if you had a problem with the steep stairs that they would make other accommodations. Probably would have been another delay so we all carefully went down the steep slippery stairs. I doubt that the stairs met any OHSA or safety requirements except for emergency issues. They were wet and slippery. This was the absolute worst trip that I have taken with Delta. It will seriously influence my future trip decisions."
Cons: "Not being on time. Not delivering service stated. Sitting on a taxi way for extra time. Having to disembark down steep slippery stairs, basically an emergency exit. This trip was late from start to finish."
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: "You had me check my hand luggage with expensive items that did not arrive."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Had to pay for bags"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight left on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The flight was rough. The coffee was horrible though."
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "Not crowded. Short flight."
Pros: "Free movies helped make the flight go faster. Also when possible my girlfriend and I were seated together despite having seats assigned at the gate."
Cons: "Being in zone three meant checking bags on every flight. That's a side effect of picking the cheapest tickets so not really Delta's fault but it says that I have to put something here."
Pros: "Nice staff (check in counter and flight attendants) and good food and smooth ride"
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to bring my hiking poles onto the flight and they didn't fit into my checked bag."
Pros: "great flight - easy and quick as always"
Cons: "the power on the plane didn't work and there was no entertainment"
Cons: "My suitcase came without a wheel. Damaged luggage."
Pros: "The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile."
Cons: "I didn't like the food."
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "I was automatically upgraded."
Cons: "I was upgraded, which I appreciate very much. However, I was upgraded to a window seat. With my bladder situation it was comfortable. This is why I only book aile seats."
Pros: "Whereas our flight out from Raleigh to JFK where everything that could possibly go wrong did(late crew, boarding computer problem, mechanical issues with the plane, gate problems, missed connection) this last leg of our trip back was flawless. Everything was on time, and the crew was friendly and attentive. We had exit row seats so the leg room for this 90 minute flight was great compared to our first part (London-Atlanta)"
Pros: "The updated food is a nice change to Delta and a positive one."
Cons: "The attitude of the flight attendants was rude and not a way to act in a customer service industry."
Pros: "Good service and food"
Cons: "My non-reclining first class seat was a disappointment on this long flight. The flight was full, so there was no re-seating option."
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "The crew. The punctuality."
Cons: "The confort of the seats."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew, economy seat was ok even if I’m 6’ 1”"
Cons: "Food was not very good, inflight headset available but very, very low quality for such a noisy environment and their own headset plug would not match the plug type of the entertainment center!"
Cons: "The travel has bien good"
Cons: "Boarding by rows would avoid people rushing to line up ahead of time."
Cons: "My only suggestion would be to include instructions on how to control the entertainment center and find things such as the headphones in the armrest."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Cons: "This was a smooth as clockwork journey, the transit was easy and we were kept well informed about changes in the gate number"
Pros: "Very amazing"
Pros: "What more can you expect for economy travel?"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "Cramped, old plane with no entertainment system."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating, Frequently offered water also."
Cons: "Can t think of anything."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Cons: "The flight did not take off from Dusseldorf until AFTER we were scheduled to arrive in Frankfurt. There were no updates from the flight crew on the delay or on our connecting flight."
Pros: "I had a great seat in premium economy. I would recommend upgrading to anyone. Friendly crew. Good entertainment options."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional"
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "Everything on the flight was very efficient and organized—the boarding process, the excellent and pleasant service, the food, and the entertainment selections. Thank you for making a long flight enjoyable."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Cons: "It was one of the best flight of my life. Thr crew was absolutely super professional. Very clean aircraft, flight on time and excelent service. This flight proofed that everything is possible. Kidneys and smile were key factors"
Pros: "at RDU after they missed to notify me in time, they were very nice to find me the fastest route on the next day, not miss my whole conference . They give me food vulture also. most of the flying attendances were really kind under my travel, except on the MUC-IAD plane"
Cons: "They didn't notify me in time on a delay and didn't suggested a different route. Therefore I was able to flew just the following day as my connection to the oversea flight was more then an hour delay. It happened with me flying to Budapest, and also flying back from Budapest. Make you better understand, that does it mean for me: in Budapest I missed the first part of my conference, and with the flying back one day later I lost one payed work day. As I have family in Budapest I decided to stay for the night there, and not at Munich, but just rescheduling my flight and providing me a taxi drive was so complicated, that it took two and half extra hrs at the airport, Also Lufhansa put me in my rescheduled back trip the MUC-IAD flight on the 45C seat, what was the worst seat on the plane. Not just that. When they have plenty of empty seat in all of the section, and they wanted to sell it the economy plus seats for more than hundred dollars, I mentioned to the fight attendance my misery ,and how I don't like the seat what I got, and she laughed on me, and I heard her telling her colleagues,this kind of funny way as they were behind me. That's no how they need to treat passenger, Also on flying back they didn't react fast, and they missed to put me on the Frankfurt plane, what could be an alternative route, on the same day, instead they sent me desk to desk."
Pros: "Didn’t like absolutely nothing"
Cons: "We had to walk from gate z all the way to gate B carrying all the bags which was painful, the plane was very tight and old that I had to put all my carry on bags in the floor. I personally had to help the crew members to pick up the food trays because they were very limited and no entertainment at all which was really boring."
Pros: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."
Pros: "From boarding to the whole in flight experience - special meal never came, paid extra for seats and wish I never did, food is terrible , luggage is lost on the way back - week later no contact! Never again"
Cons: "I would like for this airline to close down and never hurt anyone again!"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Cons: "Check in 2x and security 2x Then rushing about"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Great crew service"
Pros: "I upgraded to the premium food package for a small price. It was delicious and filling."
Cons: "The quality of the sound from the earphones was not very good so that made the movies less enjoyable."

Cons: "Extremely loud engine noise in Economy Cabin. Concern on impact on hearing during transatlatic flight. Crampt seating."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "Food foul / fowl staff brusque breakfast in edible stone cold dinner as something my 10 year old could better prepare boarding chaos Frankfurt immigration staff curiously aggressive wouldn't pay premium economy again with this airline"
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were ok."
Cons: "Check in was very, very slow, for some reason."
Pros: "keep going"
Pros: "Tea offered instead of coffee - nice touch!"
Pros: "Crew were courteous and professional"
Cons: "They couldn't serve dinner because of weather conditions (?!!) Boarding was kind of messy"
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance to the boarding gate. The attendants were very helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Lufthansa has us on a short connection in Munich. But instead of bumping us like Air Canada, which does not care about customers, Lufthansa got a little van for our family of 5, took us through expedited passport control and helped us reach our flight. They have done a superb job and it is great to see an airline that has a very capable ground crew as well as air crew. Lufthansa made us feel like they cared about us and trust me traveling with three kids under 6 we very much appreciated it and they will have our return business!!"
Pros: "Friendly, professional crew!"
Cons: "At too high"
Cons: "The plain in Denver landed very hard, hit the ground with a very loud noise and people were very scared. After that the pilot said "sorry for the hard landing but at least you guys are awake"..."
Pros: "Great crew, food was good, smooth flight, enough leg room."
Cons: "Leg space is tight"
Cons: "It was late, we had connection to Berlin and we were in a hurry And forgot things on the plain. They didn't make arrangements to help us be on time for our connection. We had to run. My name is Dan Chevion. Can we get back the items we forgot on the plain?"
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "New variety of food"
Pros: "Flight attendant was rude to my non French speaking 12 year old. He ripped his charger out of the USB port and threw it at him."
Cons: "TSA was sketchy and gave a FULL search, part down, etc. I kept asking and the excuse kept changing. Final excuse ridiculous! Flight attendant could have not treated my son as he way he did. I was unaware that the usb cord being inputted during taxiing As was my son. He was horrible to him!!"
Pros: "The whole crew is so kind"
Cons: "Delta made my whole first flying experience the best."
Cons: "We had a short delay"
Pros: "Had decent room space seats comfortable"
Cons: "My luggage could have arrived for a start"
Pros: "Crew great."
Cons: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."
Pros: "Friendly attendants, entertainment variety"

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service and food was good."
Cons: "Random TSA check was not needed at the end when boarding."

Pros: "Onboard crew was friendly. Dinner was good"
Cons: "Cabin was very cold. Not enough legroom compared to orher international carriers. Male flight attendant kept bumping into my husband sitting in aisle seat so he unable to get any sleep. We tried upgrading to business but Delta said we had to contact Air France in Detroit. When thrre, the gentleman on ground crew was actually rude when I asked about it. He could have just politely told me there was nothing available. Not looking forward to my return flight"
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."
Pros: "It was ok fligh"
Cons: "Food was not so good"
Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather"
Pros: "Great hospitality. Champagne as apero, cognac as digestif. Excellent on board entertainment. Comfy pillow and blanket."
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Plenty of seat space"
Cons: "In flight entertainment and call button was broken ... crew never passes to ask if you’d like water."
Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"

Pros: "It es a good flight back"
Cons: "Items missing on duty free purchases"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Pros: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Cons: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Pros: "I am a 70 year old woman with reduced mobility. The flight attendants made sure that I was given an aisle seat and they helped me find a seat with two empty ones next to me. The crew could not have been kinder."

Cons: "The wi-fi did not work on our flight"
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"

Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Very small plane."
Pros: "quick flight 10 min ahead schedule"
Cons: "Poor communication. Did not know was airfrance the booking was completed with Austria airline. In the ticket was not the information. Also, airfrance could not find me in their systems I was late to board the plane. Terrible messy and confusing time for me."
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."
