  • Flights to San Francisco from the main airports in India will land at San Francisco International Airport, which is situated approximately 12 miles (almost 20kms) outside the city centre and is the main airport for international flights into San Francisco. There are no direct flights from India to San Francisco, with most carriers making at least one stopover, so you may wish to choose an airline that stops somewhere you'd like to visit.
  • Travellers who are stressed about flying and who love dogs can seek out members of San Francisco International Airport’s ‘Wag Brigade’. This Brigade consists of dogs that are part of the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and who, with their handlers, stroll through the terminals to bring calm and happiness to those afraid of flying. The animals, selected for their temperament and suitability for airports, have vests with the words “Pet Me!” written on them so that you can identify them easily.
  • For passengers with layovers of four hours or more after flights to San Francisco, why not venture out into San Francisco and the Peninsula Bay area. This is easily done on public transport – if you take the BART train from the airport to, for example, Montgomery Street Station, you will be able to visit Chinatown, the historic heart of San Francisco, and Northbeach, with its Italian influence, which boasts a variety of jazz clubs, galleries, restaurants and ice-cream shops. The journey time for this excursion is 30 minutes one way and you can buy tickets at the airport train station.
  • If you need to escape the noise of the terminal and retreat to do some reflection, meditation or prayer, seek out the Berman Reflection room in the main hall of the international terminal at San Francisco Airport. Here you can spend some time in quiet contemplation before embarking on the next leg of your journey.
  • Travelling with children? San Francisco International Airport has a wide range of activities to entertain them in between flights. There are play areas in T2 and T3, or why not visit the Aviation Museum and Library, which is free of charge and consists of exhibitions that tell the story of the history of air transport and the development of commercial flight. For those who love aviation (children and adults alike) – this is a good place to spend some time.

Pros: "I like how the crew made rounds hourly to provide drinks and ensure we are good! Also appreciated when they were able to accommodate last minute meal changes!!"

Pros: "At least it was delayed so we could make it to SFO."
Cons: "The American Airlines flight was delayed so the delayed flight from Honolulu could make it to Los Angeles and not subject AA to additional complaints. We arrived at close to midnight and worried about getting the car out of the parking lot without incurring additional charges of and additional day. The food was not great."

Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."

Cons: "Entertaining in English"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"

Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."

Pros: "I like the guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."

Pros: "The food the service and the staff"

Pros: "The food the service and flight was great"

Pros: "Food was amazing. But Yoshinoya wasn't a good idea, I do not eat beef."

Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Cons: "nothing!"

Pros: "Best service and food among a few hundred flights I have taken so far. CAs were always courteous. They are smiling to each other and looked happy. It was really nice to see that."
Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."

Pros: "Staff and service good"
Cons: "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"

Cons: "No space for cabin bags. Late by 2 hours. Super rude and passive aggressive staff. Kept in bus at Frankfurt for 10 mins. Won’t fly BA again if i can help it."

Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."

Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."

Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"

Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."

Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"

Pros: "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."

Pros: "Everything was great except for how warm it was. It may be seasonal?"
Cons: "There weren’t any personal vents on the 777 going to or coming back from Japan. Otherwise it was a perfectly fine flight. I just don’t do well when it’s too warm as it make me feel sick."

Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"

Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"

Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"

Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"

Pros: "There was more leg room than most airlines, friendly staff, and good movies and food selection."

Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Pros: "Seats are extremely comfortable even in economy. Service was attentive and very gracious. Both meals were above average for airline food. Made a 12 hour flight seem much shorter!"

Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"

Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."

Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."

Pros: "Clean :)"

Cons: "The flight attendants were talking in the back all through the flight. I was seated third row from the back, so they were audible throughout the flight and very annoying."

Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."

Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."

Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."

Pros: "Fast boarding and wonderful staff."
Cons: "A small complaint, but the entertainment system in the plane was very old and had poor quality screens."

Cons: "Didnt realize that Veg Meal, i needed to explicitly request while checking in. ended having bread butter and deserts"

Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."

Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"

Cons: "Food is not that good"

Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."

Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"

Pros: "The upgraded seating."

Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."

Pros: "Amazing crew, super hospitality, conformable sit"
Cons: "non for now, may later after much observations, other than that.. it was a great experience flying with Qatar airways.."

Pros: "The crew was exceptional. They took care of the customers with passion and energy. The Q suites are comfortable and one of the best seats out there."

Pros: "More leg room, easy boarding and comfortable flight in economy"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."

Cons: "During check-in, I observed inconsistent application of rules with respect to hand luggage. My carry-on and laptop bag combined were 12 kgs and was told that I had to pay excess baggage fees. While, there were quite a few people on the plane whose hand luggage was clearly above 12 kgs."

Pros: "My comments are as above . On the Auckland to Quatar leg of my journey Excellent airline and crew."

Cons: "The connection in Doha was a pain...one has to one end of the airport to the other...go through security and then come ALL THE WAY BACK! UGH!"

Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."

Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Long hours from Doha to Atlanta"

Pros: "Boarding and ticket counter crew were good."
Cons: "Business class passengers were not given a priority.The food was mediocre and didn't compare to other airlines. The crew was impolite and attend to passenger's needs. Local American airlines pay more attention to passengers even in economy class. Will not recommend traveling from Mumbai to Doha via Qatar airways."

Pros: "Website and in-flight service is quite good. Flights take-off and land on time. The crew is international and quite professional."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment system is not quite good. The touch screen is not responsive and the movie selection is not very good. This is where Emirates excels."

Pros: "I was the third person in the line. The ticket agent couldn't find my ticket as multiple tickets were booked on my name and all tickets showed X mark. After 20-30 minutes of wait, I finally got my ticket but the security and custom lines were very long by that time. Never flying Qatar again."

Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."

Pros: "Yes all things are good"
Cons: "Very good experience"

Pros: "Was ok"

Cons: "Boarding announcements weren’t clear and boarding was not separated by zone."

Pros: "Good food."

Cons: "There was no option during check in to request meal options- ex vegetarian request."

Cons: "All flights were delayed Boarding experience is not that great Not sufficient leg room, so cramped up Food was very average"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Availability of choice of meal (vegan)"
Cons: "Crew behaviour in general"

Pros: "Even though I was flying economy, the seats on the A380 were wide and comfortable and the entertainment onboard was very good."

Pros: "Boarding announcements somewhat vague - not repeated often enough"

Cons: "There was a delay in landing that resulted in missing my next flight to Dallas. I had to book another ,really expensive air ticket immediately for the next available flight myself. No assistance was provided. Incurred huge loss and inconvenience due to the delay. The staff was very inconsiderate."

Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Management"

Pros: "Service leg space"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Flights were on time."

Pros: "Courteous and attentive crew from baggage check in thru baggage claim."

Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"
Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"

Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"

Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."

Pros: "Business class on the 737 is somewhat basic compared to Virgin Australia's A330, but you still get the same great service, and the food is terrific."

Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."

Pros: "Excellent service!"

Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."

Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"

Cons: "Good overall"

Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."

Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."

Cons: "No flight"

Pros: "Crew were great. EconomyX is a wonderful seating set up"
Cons: "Very strange boarding. They got us through the boarding process but then made us all wait in the bridge because the plane wasn’t ready. So now you have a plane load of people all crammed into the bridge. Very poor."

Pros: "Crew was very solicitous...food was quite good.."
Cons: "Baggage was very slow in arriving. ..45-60 minutes"

Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late boarding, sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes, and there was no offer of complimentary beverages. Very barebones level of service."

Cons: "I never expect airline food to be any good but I’m always hoping it’s edible. This was not the case, as the egg breakfast made me physically ill."

Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"

Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"

Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"

Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"

Cons: "Service is super fast"

Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."

Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."

Pros: "Fast check in Fast security line Upper Class Clubhouse Fast boarding Excellent onboard service Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system Although the seats can be turned into a bed they don't fully recline"

Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."

Pros: "NA"

Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."

Pros: "Entertainment system worked well. Good choices."
Cons: "Food decent, but not enough fluids offered during flight . Was very dehydrated by end."

Pros: "Getting to Barbados from Manchester airport is convenient"
Cons: "The light weight on a long haul flight do not work anything over four hours you need some form of comfortability and virgin got it wrong with the seats .. yes I know the industry is all about making and saving money but you also need to Remember that most of this flight you will be sat down for"

Pros: "On time, comfortable (for Economy), friendly crew. Nine hour flight didn't feel that long."
Cons: "Entertainment system in our seats seemed pretty beat up. On one there was no sound, on the other not all the buttons on the control would respond when you pressed them."

Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and wine selections were limited and only mediocre. We flew economy plus."

Pros: "Having a not full flight and room to spread out. The Dreamliner is awesome. On time departure."
Cons: "The wifi did not work at all, and I think I was charged 3 times Landed 30 mins early and then waited an hour for the gate, I get that things happen but we have been on the plane for 11.5 hrs. Figure it out!"

Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"

Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."

Cons: "Everyone was delightful during the entire flight."

Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."

Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."

Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."

Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"

Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "Price?"

Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"

Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"

Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."

Pros: "Very good service, plenty of food, food was pretty good, entertainment system was great and the seats in economy with very comfortable."

Pros: "No queues on check in, security nor on arrival. New plane, touch screens, usual abundance of films and food. More drink rounds than last trip. Wifi if you want it."
Cons: "cabin crew very perfunctory. No apology for screen needing resets ( sorry about that would do). Ok but no smiles or personal interaction"

Pros: "I would like to have ore of a grace period to check baggage."

Cons: "Bad social distance"

Pros: "Felt safe and sanitary"

Pros: "The crew went the extra mile to accomodate my bag due to not having a seat in front of me to stow it. Also, Delta Comfort was exceptional!"

Cons: "Smelled like poop the entire flight. Actual poop in the lavatory."

Cons: "Terrible delays"

Cons: "Better food offerings"

Pros: "No food, late by hour"

Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "In one hour flight we could have some drinks and food. Snacks... can’t believe they don’t have any food/alcohol"

Cons: "The bathrooms smelled every time someone opened the door. Febreeze, please!!"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Service by crew. I was flying economy but it was par to business class."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The three hour delay, the not having a pilot which delayed us even more, and then reduced service during the flight because they rushed us."

Pros: "If offering free WiFi to Amex platinum card holders it needs to work f"
Cons: "Fix it"

Pros: "That it got me home"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."

Cons: "Delayed flight, offset entertainment, touch screen un responsive"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multilpe delays"

Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."

Cons: "late leaving, arriving and taxing."

Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."

Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"

Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"

Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"

Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"

Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."

Pros: "Maintained high standards of service despite massive delay."
Cons: "Boarding and departure was messy because of the delay"

Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."

Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."

Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"

Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
