Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew. Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Should add weather/radar to the flight tracker"
Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."
Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Pros: "Food on long legs was excellent."
Cons: "Delayed in Atlanta. What’s new?"
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "The poor cabin stewardess was working the whole time as it was a short flight."
Cons: "This is a horrible route, they charge you more than flying to Europe and give you a one hour ride in a cramped plane where you can't even bring in a carry-on. The cost is insane but is one of the reasons Wall Street loves Delta as they are racking in the profits for very little service."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Why does Delta sell earphones?"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate was inconvenient b/c jt dissuades you from taking a bathroom break before the flight. They can't prefer that you go on the plane."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Wondering why all the shuttles were parked and unavailable when you knew there were connection s that were tight."
Cons: "Add A Display Board For When Cabin Sections Are Boarding"
Cons: "Overall, a good short flight."
Pros: "Flight staff friendly and everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Always wishing for roomier seats."
Pros: "Left on time, landed early"
Cons: "Asked a crèw member to put my bag in the overhead , didn't like his attitude,also asked him for a soda, didn't get it, got it from another attendant"
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."
Pros: "Cincinnati airport was clean and efficient"
Cons: "MCO airport gate was a mess and did not have easy access to charge phones."
Cons: "No entertainment options at all."
Cons: "Food was awful. Didn't get my checked luggage in Manila upon arrival, was traced and left in New York JFK. Don't know who messed up with my luggage if Delta connection or China airlines."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The crew! So slow! Not helpful with your questions/request and the attitude! What on earth! Awful customer service!"
Pros: "Great service. On time departure. Early arrival"
Pros: "I had never traveled with Delta until my trip to Mexico. I was most impressed with the great service I received on my way to Mexico: from Atlanta to Guadalajara, Guadalajara to CDMX, and, at the end of my stay, from CDMX to Atlanta. I cannot say the same about the experience within Continental USA."
Cons: "I perceived a negative difference in all aspects during my flight going to Mexico, from Philadelphia to Atlanta, and coming back, from Atlanta to Philadelphia."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Pros: "Everyone was fairly friendly"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Cons: "Delayed 15 hours because of a mechanical issue, spent the night in Cancun. Customer service and communication throughout was terrible."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "The comfort and attention on the part of the cabin crew of the flight was quite good."
Cons: "What I did not like was the process to go to the assigned air terminal in El Salvador, the process was slow and we took the flight at the end of the last one. The same was the process from Los Angeles to Seattle that was our scale. Process too long and go back through security, the boarding gate was almost closed. I think that for these cases they should leave more time for the stopovers that come from international flights. For my part I did not choose this option, since I was traveling with a person with mobility problems and separated the group for admission to the process of entering the USA."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. The woman who checked in my dog and my bag was really nice too. On time, efficient, and clean."
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Cons: "My flight got delayed for twelve hours with no compensation for a hotel."
Pros: "boarding was smooth crew great and service was good"
Cons: "sat in middle seat was my fault checked in late too many kids and babies on flight will not fly through orlando again food was typical airline food"
Pros: "Where the flight attendants on my AeroMexico portion were authentically compassionate, the flight attendants for delta were superficial. The flight attendant,while serving us drinks, started saying what great passengers we were but her flight from Dallas the day before was definitely a feeling the effects of the full moon. This was our first interaction with a flight attendant. She had no basis for saying we were great and as we didn't have a relationship other than ordering drinks she had no basis for complaining about her Dallas to us. She would leave it to us that she was being put upon by the customers that she was getting paid to serve. Where the Aeromexico flight attendant genuinely enjoyed serving her customers."
Cons: "They forced everyone in the third zone to check our hand carry and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, on-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Had to stow backpack under seat due to full flight. How is this still the norm? Wi-fi not working."
Cons: "Crew allowed passenger to leave bag on floor between seats on emergency exit. This is a safety violation."
Pros: "They say us together (we had seats apart -- even though it stated our children are 4 & 1). They gave them wings and each an extra little snack. I felt they were supportive of us."
Cons: "Paying to check our bags!! We were forced to... too much stuff traveling with kids. It sucked to have to pay $50 when Alaska airlines saw we were struggling, they checked our carry one for free to ease our time in the airport!"
Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Pros: "They were honest about why we late taking off."
Cons: "Having to wair for them to fuel the plane"
Pros: "As the flight was over two hours late and a runway at JFK was shut down I opted for a full refund from Delta as I would have been at my destination less than 24 hours. Kayak & Delta was good keeping me informed of changes including the 5 gate changes"
Pros: "Overall flight experience was excellent - no delays!"
Cons: "As always, Delta has very little room to store anything in pullback seat back of seat in front of passenger seat."
Pros: "love to fly delta"
Cons: "don't like when they ask to check bags at gate"
Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."
Pros: "Speed of birding and departure. Very smooth ride on the 777."
Cons: "Not many food options."
Pros: "On time and comfortable flight."
Cons: "Gate not ready on arrival."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Seats are small, touch screens dated. but that's on the airline to update and the seats won't get any larger as long as money is being made."
Pros: "Decent crew"
Cons: "Seat pitch and comfort. Food utensils VERY flimsy"
Cons: "Parents that check to make sure their kids are not obnoxious during the entire 6 hour flight."
Pros: "IT WAS UNEVENTFUL WHICH IS WHAT YOU WANT. CREW WAS VERY NICE AND NO CRYING YOUNGSTERS."
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Flight was switched to United airlines so the confirmation number did not work and we could not check in on line. Food was the worst I have had on a flight."
Cons: "It's a 6 hour flight and not even a sandwich? Food on boeard is for sale. Same with movies or TV shows."
Cons: "Landing was missed, had to circle, then rough"
Cons: "flight was delayed - mechanical; disabled husband (had knee replacement 15 weeks ago) had to walk the entire way from concourse F to A. the caused excruciating pain."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing! It was there that I found out my plane was delayed and I would miss my baby’s ceremony. Things went downhill from there."
Cons: "The fact that I’d depart an entire day later. Was given a complimentary hotel but my luggage had already made it to Honolulu. No clothes and my medicine was in my luggage. I can’t explain the disappointment I feel simply because I know United Airlines doesn’t care about their customers. Like I’ve been told it’s corporate America and all that matters is the money. So sad because it’s the customers that have to suffer!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, leaving SNA and I would not make the connecting flight to HNL. Lyn P. at SNA placed me on Alaska Air and I was able to make my connection. Howeer my bag is lost. When I inquire on the 1-800 Baggage resolution number, my bag has not been found yet. It has been 12 hours since my bag was placed on Alaska Air at SNA."
Pros: "Apart from the poor attitude of the lady in Denver the rest went fine."
Cons: "Not great customer service, I get the feeling that some of the flight attendants "just don't care". Trying to watch movies on your own device just doesn't work. Movie hangs every five minutes or so."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Having to wait"
Pros: "How pleasant everyone was"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for paper work. We should not have boarded the plane until they are ready"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food was inedible. Refund requested and received. Male flight attendant was inattentive, careless, and a poor attitude. Seats are crowded beyond reason."
Cons: "Late to board, lots of attitude from seemingly inexperienced and unethusistic crew who bumped me constantly, and seemed annoyed to be there. Constantly hitting me and waking me up. Also my remote was the only one on the plane that didn't work, so I had to spend the whole flight awake getting bumped with no entertainmen"

Pros: "All services where very good from check in to arrival In L.A."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like."
Cons: "My luggage lock was broken."

Cons: "When the flight attendant said there was absolutely nothing that they could do for me. I started to ask if thier was anything they could do for me, since I was missing my connecting flight and now going to have to wait 5:30 hours for the next flight that was delayed. I was so disappointed, I mean anything kind would have helped, at this point. The whole day was already filled from previous delays."

Pros: "The whole crew was incredible and sweet to me even though j lost my phone on the plane! They helped me look, they stayed after, they lent me flashlights, they went above and beyond. I will never fly another airline again!"
Pros: "Pilot was great in keeping us informed. Flight was late getting in, then in line with a lot of planes waiting to take off. Then at O'Hare our gate wasn't ready and had to circle. And then we were at the gate farthest from baggage claim. At least the was relatively smooth."
Cons: "See above...lateness of everything"
Pros: "Really efficient ground crew in Dublin who walked through the line at Dublin with ipads scanning passports and explaining that we would be going through customs in Dublin. food was decent, wine and beer were complimentary on the flight."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Cons: "Boarding went quickly but then waited almost 35 minutes on the plane to take off. Once the plane landed there was again a wait to pull into the gate. Spent more time waiting on the plane than the flight itself."
