Cons: "Seats are tiny"

Pros: "Crew was very rude both to and from Sydney. Always made people feel like they were a burden and they didn’t want to even be there. Will never fly Delta again, especially internationally."
Cons: "Hire employees that at least pretend they enjoy their job."

Pros: "Almost as soon as we finished taking off, we were landing. A one-hour trip doesn't let you really love or hate anything."

Pros: "Crew was great, seats were comfy and the entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but it happens."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efficient. Flight was pretty smooth."
Cons: "On time departure would have been nice. 2.5 hours late."

Pros: "tCrew was good. On one side of airplane in main cabin, bathroom was twice size of normal airplane bathrooms. This was welcome."
Cons: "Seats were reasonable."

Cons: "Crew was not very friendly or helpful. Not even a drink service on this flight. Atlanta is over crowded and always a problem. Couldn’t avoid it this time."

Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "My seat didn’t have a window. The woman who booked it told me there was limited recline, THERE WAS NO RECLINE, and she left out there is no window even though she asked me if I wanted window or isle and I chose window. I felt like I was in a closet. Landing was incredibly harsh."

Cons: "I really like more legs room and comfort and crew member were very good and helpful. Regarding food I say it’s just ok."

Pros: "Ryan was great! Very nice and professional, would love to see him on a future flight."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"

Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane, crew professional and nice."

Pros: "The entire thing, food, service, and ..."
Cons: "More room in each seat"

Pros: "Delta always does a superior job - domestically and internationally!"

Cons: "Everything was perfect!"

Cons: "Terrible landing"

Pros: "Same"

Pros: "I love flying Delta and my flight to Australia was incredible. I like the fact that I can check two bags free and the free inflight messaging and entertainment. Some of the staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seat I was in was broken. It moved and I was stuck sitting on metal. There was no leg room. The plane used going to Australia was a lot roomier this plane was old. Some of the flight attendants were very unfriendly and seemed to be bothered by the fact they had to do their job. The entertainment system had to be rebooted multiple times and the usb on the seats didn’t work. They ran out of food during lunch."

Pros: "Nice updates"

Cons: "There was a LOT of turbulence and the landing was a rough one too. Plane was cramped with very little leg room and my seat back was broken."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This is the second flight in a row in which Delta has either cancelled or rescheduled my flight at the last minute. Last time I was stranded in the Atlanta airport overnight waiting literally all night for them to return my luggage (which never came, and then was late even to my final destination). I will not be using Delta in the future."

Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was great"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and the iPod chargers were broke in 2 of our 3 seat row"

Cons: "Delta allowed flights with empty seats going to the same destination to take off without trying to fill them w passengers who were delayed on other flights. Our flight was delayed more than three hours, and it’s a shame that some folks could have been accommodated on that flight but were not."

Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."

Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"

Pros: "food was pretty good."
Cons: "a bit squashy in the seat. Inability to go online and select my seat without having to ring Delta and they do it."

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "I used the call button for the attendant and no one came for a long time"

Pros: "Service vey Good. Nice choices. Comfort seating very nice"
Cons: "WiFi awful. Useless."

Pros: "The LGA team did great in difficult situation"

Cons: "Sat on the plane on the tarmac for over an hour in the cold..."

Cons: "They lost my bag."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding; crew had the foresight to ask for travelers to gate-check their bags due to a full flight and that saved a lot of boarding time and hassle."
Cons: "The seats on this aircraft looked like that had a 2-2 configuration; it's now 3-2 making it pretty cramped in Coach."

Pros: "Compared to previous flight - this was so much better with upgrade to first class and extra space."

Pros: "Lots of water being offered. Lucky to have extra seat for comfort."
Cons: "It seemed longer than the estimated time. The food was bland. My husband's entertainment system worked, mine didn't. We had hit a lot of rough air during time over Pacific. Would have been nice if the pilot would have given more information."

Pros: "Landed from Sydney at 8am. Flew to San Francisco at 4pm. Long wait. Not good."
Cons: "Landed in Los Angeles at 8am. Left for San Francisco at 4pm. Aweful."

Pros: "quick trip, no problems"

Pros: "Staff on the plane was courteous although they skipped half of us for snacks & forgot some requests for water"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."

Pros: "Everything about it was excellent, which is saying a lot for a guy who travels a lot."
Cons: "I realize that a flight attendant is there ultimately for safety reasons, but one of the three was particularly brusque in her interaction."

Pros: "Professionalism"

Cons: "sitting on the runway for over 3 hours without any water, snacks, or even video entertainment screens or outlets to charge phones"

Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "No earphones available. I had forgotten mine but crew stated that none had been put on the flight. Lunch was served but no snacks later as is usual on an almost 4 hr flight. I always fly First Class for the extra room and perks of crew service. Crew spent most time in galley chatting. Not a bad flight by any means but I guess I have been spoiled by superior service on all of my other weekly Delta flights."

Cons: "Delta doesn't manage their flight schedules and personnel with backup or standby crew in order to assist whenever there are delays across domestic flights. The plane was late to arrive at the gate and we were also told that while the pilot was ready to take off, we couldn't leave because we were waiting for a flight attendant to land from Pittsburgh (we were in La Guardia airport in NYC). delta would rather I convenience the flyer instead of hiring more personnel or figuring out standby or backup plans for delayed flights."

Pros: "I'm an American ex-pat who travels to and from between the US and Australia. I do whatever I can to fly on Australian rather than American airlines, as they are always much better in every regard. But in this case it wasn't feasible, and I found myself on a Delta flight. I'd say the overall experience was somewhere between okay-good. Nothing major to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. The entertainment options were decent. I appreciated the variety of newly released movies. However, I would have liked a greater selection of TV shows, and the availability of more episodes. I also appreciated the availability of internet access, but I don't understand why it has to be quite *so* pricey. Surely they could make a bit more on greater volume if they dropped the price a bit. I didn't purchase access, but I would have if it were 40-50% cheaper. The comfort of the plane seemed the same as any of the alternatives. Boarding and deplaning were as they should be."
Cons: "The service from the crew though was simply ok. They were just friendly enough not to be rude, but no more than that. Virgin Australia and Qantas consistently have much happier crews, who make you feel like a dignified guest, even in economy. The food was average at best, and they served two meals where the Australian airlines would serve three on the same flight. They also offered less in the way of snacks and drink refills. It seemed like they were cutting corners here, which I don't appreciate on a 15 hour flight. Also, they said they "proudly serve Starbucks coffee". After drinking it, I don't think they should be proud of that! Again, overall it was a decent experience. Nothing flashy, but nothing too bad either. If the costs are comparable for your flight, you should certainly choose one of the Australian carriers. You'll get better service from the crew and better food. The one caveat, however, is that Delta has WiFi, whereas at the date of writing this, the Australian carriers do not. While access is exorbitant, if you really need to get some work done on the plane, you might choose Delta for this reason alone."

Pros: "Sitting in the exit row (52H) gave me lots of space and the temperature was great."
Cons: "My original flt KE018 on 03Apr17 was a different story; had adequate space, but the temperature was warm making it uncomfortable to sleep during the 13 hour flight. Unfortunately, the A-380 does not have manual overhead air vents."

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?"

Cons: "Connection flight from LAX to Seattle was dropped off of booking completely. When Delta was able to fix the changes in Sydney Australia they put my husbands ticket as a standby instead of putting him in an assigned seat and reported that they couldn't fix it that we would have to wait and get to LAX before the changes could be made again. There was a one and a half hour flight delay from LAX to Seattle. From Sydney Australia to LAX entertainment system didn't work the whole entire flight, they were screaming children the entire flight, and Delta had double booked seats on several different people. There were no apologies and no compensation for any of the incidences."

Pros: "First flight I have ever flown that offered free beverages of all kinds. Food wasn't too bad. Entertainment choices were outstanding. Pilot was like a tour guide."
Cons: "Cramped space for 14 hours. Some crew were somewhat grumpy and seemed rushed, even though we had plenty of time."

Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Trenton was outstanding. Very professional"

Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and quick. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Suitcase arrived brokken off the belt. If was in good shape when checked in at Chicago for the last leg of a 17 flight round the world trip. Typical to have baggage handled very poorly in US."

Cons: "Didn't get requested seats"

Pros: "Always love flying United. I enjoy being treated so well and seeing others being treated with the same respect."
Cons: "Nothing that the crew could have fixed. Delay due to previous plane coming in as well as too much oil on the plane so it took about 1.5 extra hours to finally begin taxing. A little frustrating to arrive so late but nothing they could have done. They handled it well and had positive attitudes"

Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."

Pros: "Full flight but still received great care and attention from the crew."

Pros: "The flight was non-stop and it was short 51mins. Boarding super easy."
Cons: "Seats are too small."

Cons: "flight had left by the time the delayed flight from MUC reached IAD => got rebooked on DL via ATL"

Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."

Cons: "Hour and a half delay"

Cons: "I do not like the in-seat screens that force you to watch advertising."

Pros: "Took the red eye from San Francisco to Nashville at the end of a long trip to Cali for a family reunion. I've never flown United before and it was okay. I wasn't able to sleep as I'd hoped as I had a hard time getting comfortable due to the size of my row mate beside me and I was in the middle."
Cons: "Everything from United's standpoint was fine."

Cons: "United should explain why they wanted to create the Basic Economy Category. What is the benefit for the airlines? I feel that they just took the lowest price they always offered and took away the flexibility we had."

Pros: "The new planes have more leg room for comfort! Easy on and off the flight"
Cons: "Entertainment at a price. Should include a movie or two for free"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything Worst airline ever I will never fly with them again We chose them because they are the only ones that fly straight to my destination. However, I would rather have a layover than fly with united again! I will be flying with Southwest from now on. Thank you"

Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."

Pros: "Flight attendant. The actual flight"
Cons: "The Gate agent was rude and fresh. At least 10 passengers told me they did not hear the boarding announcements until the final boarding was called. When I said to my friend as she was running toward the gate that we didn't hear the announcements. The gate agent told me I was the only one because all the other passengers did. I told him that wasn't true. He would not look at me and repeated to go down the jet way or I would miss the flight. Meanwhile more passengers were running for the gate. The message board message displayed "preboarding". I was sitting in the gate area for 40 minutes."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We had confirmed reservations to go visit my daughter and son in law in Nashville. We had purchased tickets to see a concert in Nashville. We missed the concert and a full day of planned activities. We were bumped off the flight although we had confirmed reservations. So we decided to drive and incurred hotel charges. We will be driving back home and will incur hotel charges on the way home. We had to pay for gas and wear and tear on our car. This has been an awful experience."

Pros: "Everyone was extremely nice! Made me want to fly again. Very quick flight! Crew was great. Very enjoyable people."
Cons: "I don't have any complaints."

Cons: "Too cold on board"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."

Cons: "Ko"

Pros: "Honestly I just tried to sleep."
Cons: "What got me was the 2ND flight where a very large lady who pulled out three different seat belt extenders out of her purse was sat next to me. I could serious feel her sweat on my leg the whole ride. If a seat belt extender is need then she should have had to buy two seats."

Pros: "Not crowded"

Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."

Cons: "Lack of leg room"

Pros: "It was a smaller plane. But it went smooth. The flight was great and we were delayed but arrived like 15 minutes after our original time."
Cons: "Nothing really, security lines were long but that wasn't a shocker."

Pros: "Flight attendant had a great personality, and wasn't a robot."

Pros: "Flight delayed, had to check carry on Bag and didn't receive it for over 30 mins after flight"

Pros: "Comfy enough. Wider than the first plane."
Cons: "Crew was a little short temperee but the plane was over a half hour late. Also, somewhere between Tucson and Nashville they played football with my suitcase and I ended up with broken gifts and a suitcase full of cookies from where thr damn container broke."

Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "People took my seat, family in front of me had tv blaring the entire time and flight attendants did nothing, child next to me threw up on me since there were NO bags in the seats. Took 45 minutes to get luggage. Never again!! And no free wifi?? $7.99 is ridiculous when most other airlines give it for free."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing good to say. Unaccommodating plane and crew."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing good to say. Unaccommodating plane and crew. Pay a little more and fly another carrier."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and accommodations for this inconvience were horrible."

Pros: "They eventually refunded me"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 times over 4 hours, then we boarded the plane. They then got us off the plane. We waited two hours and then canceled the flight. The gate agents were rude and not helpful when we got in line to figure out how wee would all get to ORD. It was the most dissappointing travel experience I have had in a very long time."

Cons: "Had to sit at the gate for a very long time and it was extremely hot on the plane. Also had to use the restroom very badly while we were sitting at the gate and the crew told me I couldn't."

Pros: "quick flight and good landing"
Cons: "Do flights ever come on time??"

Pros: "The free movies on the united app were awesome"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they charged me twice for the same ticket and never refunded me my money"

Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above. Stewartists were rude both ways."

Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff. The plane was repaired rather than the flight being cancelled."
Cons: "No airconditioning on the ground so the extra time on the tarmac was very uncomfortable. While taxiing, a screen went blank, so the plane returned to the terminal, deplaned, and there was a two hour delay for the repair."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth ans efficient. Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "I paid for 2hrs of wifi, yet was unable to access it as the service was "temporarily unavailable" for the remainder of the flight."

Pros: "The process was good"
Cons: "Wish there were more morning flights"

Cons: "Nothing"
