Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "these aircraft are confyy...the staff super helpful to be honest i would rather fly with aero mexico than one of the u.s.a airlines for ex: american airlines ect.... and their selction for entertaiment was huge and up to date with all the latest stuff..."

Cons: "Good flight even though we had to go back to the gate for an issue."
Pros: "Nothing at all, we were left in Mexico with an under 2 years old boy. Reason, apparently we were late but we were not and simply Aeromexico probably oversold tickets and put others in our seats"
Cons: "To resolve our problem. Supervisor was so disrespectful and treated us so badly we had to get ao mad at them so we could get at least a hotel to spend 17 hours until our next flight which they wanted to provide"
Cons: "Checkin early to get assigned better seats. Our fare did not allow us to select our seats but we were assigned seats next to each other."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was mediocre."
Cons: "Flight delayed. They were moving us from door to door. My connecting flight was delayed too. The flight was supposed to leave at 1am when ended up leaving and hour past that plus a lot of children were traveling in that flight and I don’t think it was okay to be moving all these families around from door to door. It was 2am this children needed to be sleeping on Thebes plane that was supposed to leave at 1am. Really disappointed."
Pros: "The cabin was kept quiet, dark and orderly for the night flight."
Cons: "Same as above. The seat in economy is truly an endurance test. No way to go to sleep."

Cons: "That there was nothing ales but peanuts for a snack. I don't like peanuts. I understand that it was a 2hr flight, but I was tired and would of loved a blanket and they didn't have any.

Pros: "I like the service overall, am totally satisfied.."
Cons: "Terrible wait lines , espec ially at customs"
Cons: "Delayed hours, both on my flight to Managua and from Managua. Going through customs and having to pick up your luggage and the go back through security is annoying. What do they think has changed since the last security check? The seats are small if you have long legs. The food is not good, but I guess what airline's is?"
Pros: "Confortable seats, food on board and free! Nice service"
Cons: "Mexico Airport can be confusing. You have to be prepared to ask Aeromexico’s staff for help. They are very helpful though!"

Pros: "I️ likedthe attention of the flight attendants in flight"
Cons: "The check in at the counter was a nightmare. While we had checked in online already we had to wait in line for over 2 hours! We arrived at the airport and got in line right away. They started calling people’s flights that were leaving in less than 20 mins and that’s when everything became a nightmare. Everyone was so disorganized and people that were leaving in less than 20 mins were put on a different line. The line we had been waiting on was put on hold but the line next to us was not so now we had to wait for all the people (which was about 70) to get checked in. As my patience ran out i went up to the counter and tried to just get my bags checked so we can be on our way to our gate and of course i get the answer that i have to wait because i still have enough time (our flight was leaving in 40 minutes). then they brought a supervisor over to tell me the same thing- there was absolutely no help. By the time we were able to go on to our gate we had exactly 20 mins until our flight left. Very unacceptable. It looked like it was everyone’s first day at work and no one knew what they were doing. we fly delta all the time and i know Aeromexico now works with delta but they need a lot more training on what customer service is all about"
Pros: "When you connect out of Mexico City, the food is always fresher and more protein-rich. Yum!"
Cons: "The screens in the seat backs are a little dated and low-resolution."
Cons: "Stated "free wifi" on plane by the door entrance. But once seated and trying to log in. You have to pay. So it is not "free" In my opinion that sigh is false advertising."
Pros: "That we arrived"
Cons: "Even though they give you "linear measurements" when you check in they attempt to shove your carry-on in this "one size" box - and heaven forbid it not enter completely... there goes $50 bucks since you've already checked in your 1st bag @$25"
Cons: "eveything was bad"
Pros: "Everyone very nice people"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The crew were great they tried to kill all the mosquitos but not till every passenger was sited for some time and tried to keep the mosquitos from biting us."
Cons: "The plane was full of mosquitos from I'm only questing the plane sitting on the tarmac."
Cons: "the second part departed late ...."
Pros: "Priority boarding is what I like in this trip."
Cons: "The crew had occupied the front overhead lugguge space that cause passenger need to find space for their luggage not around their seat. The crew member also occupied the remaining business class, is it better to upgrade some customer to the business to have great experience for the trip."
Pros: "Airline stewards were friendly and provided good service. Comfortable flight. Food was good."
Cons: "Flight departed over an hour late which made it stressful trying to get to connection flight. If the other flights weren't delayed also, we would have missed the flight. I paid for my luggage more than 24 hours in advance online. Website states if paid more than 24 hours in advance, the fee is $20 for one bag. I was charged $25.00 each way. Called Aeromexico and they said I had to send email to customer service. It has been 12 days and still have not received a response to my inquiry."
Pros: "Help from attendants"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Nothing good to write"

Cons: "Everything. The flight was delayed the people were rude. I did not get my wheel chair and I was not compensated."
Cons: "Our flight leaving cancun connecting to mexico city on our return to LAX had a time change that no one contacted us about. Our flight was scheduled to leave at 5:36pm, yet when we got to the airport we were told that the flight is actually at 4:25 and that we might not get on the flight. The gate agent was very rude to us when we were upset and asking questions about why our flight time changed and why we weren't told."
Pros: "attention, meal with wine, on time"
Pros: "The space on the seats was ok."
Cons: "Food was terrible and not enough on this flight."
Cons: "Immigration process for connecting flights is a disaster and needs a better system. It's impossible to get to the connecting flight when your arrival spot is in one place and you have to go across the airport to embark to the next."
Cons: "Horrible Service. Delayed 5 hours for multiple mechanical malfunctions. No updates given."
Pros: "The entertainment system... Although had my own.. The screen was large and selection was good from what I saw around me."
Cons: "Nothing much. Was full flight but nothing they can do about that"
Pros: "Food was pretty good for Airlines."
Cons: "Boarding was supposed to be at 5:30 and departure at 6:20 They had people standing in line for one hour and 20 minutes, including me. Boarding started at 6:30 and departure was at 7:02. Not good."
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Pros: "Fast. Arrived early."
Cons: "More room."
Pros: "Flying portion was fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed for mechanical issues.... then upon landing trapped in cabin filled with exhaust then again trapped in a locked hallway."
Pros: "Flight got in early. Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Bags could have been brought onto the plane instead of being checked in. There was space in the overhead bins. The space wasn’t utilized efficiently. It would be nice if there were a few choices for the snacks."
Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."
Pros: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Pros: "I was there on time .."
Cons: "Save seats for your mistakes and compensation for my time and missed reservation.."

Pros: "pleasant crew"
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "Food and service was very good."
Cons: "Relocating us to vacant seats so that we weren't crammed all together."

Pros: "Teeny little plane but easy (early i think!) boarding process and nice flight attendant."
Cons: "We were in quite a long line to take off and when we arrived in bmore there was no one to manage the jet bridge and we sat for a little while. Seems like these issues should be easy to solve - you know when the plane is arriving for over an hour!"
Pros: "Speedy check in and security check in. Seats in plane comfortable. Staff wonderful"
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Cons: "Our departure flight was cancelled several times and we were not given an explanation. Poor communication and customer service."
Pros: "Crew was courteous Boarding was effortless thanks to the AA app"
Cons: "Multiple flight and boarding delays Aircraft needs cleaning/update"
Pros: "Let me sit by myself. Sweet"
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."

Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."
Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her."
Pros: "The boarding was fast, the flight was faster than expected too, crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Space between seats too small, breakfast not good, too far inside the plane... Not so happy of the company rules : whatever you want to change, it will cost you. I suppose it's the way to keep flights cheap, but it's not fair to pay if when you arrive first, you have to pay to change for another seat... One free luggage of 23 kg when you cross the Atlantic is not enough..."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Pros: "This flight was enjoyable because everyone could choose their own entertainment. No one offered headphones, so I was glad that I had my own."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "This particular trip everything went as well as can be expected. I was upgraded to first on both legs, always a bonus. Crew was friendly and efficient. FYI, this was not AA crew and equipment, was the regional sub. But still, all good."
Cons: "I don't care for the shuttle from the main terminal to the remote. It's crowded and uncomfortable, even for a few minutes."
Pros: "Did not catch that flight. Delayed about 8 hours."
Pros: "Crew were very good seat as comfortable as can be on a flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and information was not clear boarding was messy people had far to much hand luggage I had one piece but was not allowed to take it on board as the overheads were full already? my main case was sent early and I was a long time in baggage claim waiting for it till I found it in a contained area it had been opened for security reasons? No information was given about the early sending of luggage? Don't think I will go through Philadelphia again."
Pros: "Safely took off, flew, landed. They gave a biscoff instead of bland pretzels"
Cons: "Couldn't understand pilot."
Pros: "Watched an entire season of High Maintenance."
Cons: "Advertisements were a bit much. Also, if everyone is confused about where the spoon is on the ice-cream, maybe you should show them when you hand it out instead of trying to make them feel stupid for asking."
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"
Pros: "Plane was on schedule luggage taken as I boarded and help available as needed. This is very important for an 80 year old. Thanks for a great trip. Sue"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "not bad, I upgraded to first for the leg room, I'm 6'6", so it kinda worked out."
Cons: "Very old plane."
Cons: "The weather was bad in Dallas preventing our landing. Our plane had to be diverted to be refueled which caused us to miss our connecting flight. There was no one at the counter to help us, but one of the crew told us to call the 800 number which told us our connecting flight was in the air. When we finally found someone to help us, they rescheduled us for the next flight out 11 hours later. When we asked about accommodations, we were told there would be none since it was weather related. Then we were told we could "look for a cot", but she didn't know where any cots were."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Wished the airline would have checked my bag rather then leave it at the gateway Time was wasted if you had a connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew on ground and on the plane are great"
Cons: "The planes are old and crowded"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"
Pros: "Very good on time, comfortable."
Pros: "Liked legroom in the emergency row and the quality of the new entertainment system."
Pros: "The flight was average. Small plane, short flight, no food or beverage service. Pretty average and nothing to complain about."

Pros: "Staff was nice and helpful."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "The food. Skip the cup of noodles."
Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."

Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."
Cons: "The flights between Vancouver and Dallas are small and tight, very uncomfortable. Normal carry on csn not fit into overhead bins."
Pros: "Flight was quick, service was great, clean lavatories."
Cons: "Would've appreciated more legroom, but the same can be said for just about any airline."
Pros: "I've always had adequate flights with AC. No one goes over and beyond, but everything is as you would expect. A smooth flight."
Cons: "6 hour flight delay missed a whole day of vacation when we called customer service we were redirected to a adult sex hotline by your staff all we got was a 10 dollar voucher for our trouble never flying air Canada again"
Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."
Pros: "Meals were good and I do like the premium economy seats."
Cons: "One issue that the premium economy seats have is that they recline button is very stiff to push. Then when you have final pushed it in then push back on the seat it falls to the full recline position, potentially surprising the passenger behind. I thought this was isolated to this flight but have now encountered in 2 subsequent flights in AC premium economy."
Pros: "The flight attendant struggled were young very helpful and nice"
Cons: "No TV on back of seats. Seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I liked that we got a lot of food, and the movies were very good. Groups for boarding made sense and we boarded quickly"
Cons: "it was late and despite being 4.5 hours there were no free snacks or food. Only one toilet which we could never use bc of constant turbulence."
Pros: "The flight was nice and smooth and the crew members were so nice."
Cons: "4 hours delay with no explanation and the least of apologies."
Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"
Pros: "The flight was excellant. Something that horizon air needs to aspire too."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight, unless you are flying first class it's not going to be amazing."
Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"
Pros: "From the views read I cannot say I had the same experience. Crew was helpful & kind. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."
Pros: "Air Canada has treated me excellently every time I've flown with them. However, this connection was through United, which, on my flight to LAX, was delayed 3 hours. I should have known how this would go."
Cons: "Since this flight was delayed, I would not make my connecting flight to Tokyo. Flights with Air Canada to Tokyo were all booked that day, and several days afterward. I canceled my flight and am awaiting refund. I booked with another airline. I am severely disappointed with United's behavior. I've flown out of several countries from various airlines, and the US and US-based airlines are the only flight with consistent delays. It's honestly embarrassing. And I suppose, while I'm complaining, I'll add--as someone with a severe peanut allergy, it was important that this flight was with Air Canada, who actually cares about my safety. That I had to miss my flight and book with another, potentially dangerous airline, added to my dissatisfaction."
Pros: "Asian flavored snack mix was way better than stale peanuts. Check in, gate, and attendant staff were A+."
Cons: "International flight over 6hrs, yet food not included on flight?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Service. Rude workers"
Cons: "I booked a seat to be seated right next to SO. However, upon check-in, they changed the seat without telling me. Fortunately, we were able to exchange seat to be seated together."

Cons: "Delayed, emergency landing, 3 hrs late arrival"
Pros: "The Air Canada crew were great."
Pros: "Comfy flight, nice staff and great food!"
Pros: "I was given an awesome seat with leg room. Slept like a baby the whole time!"
Cons: "The seats with leg room are usually given to couples with a baby, but I slept through with earphones on and did not notice a single cry."
Pros: "Connections were easily changed."
Cons: "We waited several hours for a plane to arrive from Calgary. This was our only option. We watched 3 westjet flights come and go, on time which was extremely off putting. Next time we will fly west jet."
Pros: "descent leg room. overall pleasant flight,"
Cons: "overhead light didn't work. entertainment requires ipad rental or own device. I tried using my own laptop, but it requires plugin installation and the video would freeze. purchased food is low quality: tasteless cold chicken wrap"
Pros: "No food in a flight of 5hours ? SEriously? This is the first and last time, I ll choose emirates or etihad next time. for sure Air Canada will be my last choice for a flight of 4-5 hours. We could pay for poor sandwiches but no thanks ticket was already expensive. Crew was nice and flight was on time."
Pros: "Food was great, seat was comfortable, bathrooms much better designed. Overall cleaner and nicer aircraft."
Pros: "On time, good service at the airport and at the plane."
Pros: "Over 2 1/2 hrs late. Missed my connection."
Cons: "The flight was very late so even though we made our connection in Vancouver, our luggage did not. Not a peep of an apology from Air Canada either."
Pros: "The flight itself was pretty good - we had our 9 month old on his first flight and the crew made a point to outline some recommendations for carry position as well as some points for what to do in an emergency that are not outlined in the safety video."
Cons: "From when I checked in, I had booked in premium economy and was looking forward to having a pair of seats for my family. However, my plane was changed, and we ended up from having a pair of premium economy seats, by a window, to being placed in the centre section at the back of the airplane. I would have liked an alert of some sort to my phone that would alert me of the change. Additionally, it would have been good to have some sort of acknowledgement/apology, because of the inconvenience - especially since we pre-booked these seats well in advance, versus doing the selection at check-in."
Pros: "The seat was to tight."
Pros: "Food was horrendous and staff for the most part ok but occasionally surly and unhelpful. not prepared to go the extra mile. Super uncomfortable chairs barely recline."
Pros: "No muss no fuss. Flight left 5 minutes early"
Pros: "It was only 1 hour."
Cons: "It was only 1 hour."
Pros: "courteous crew; partially empty flight so lots of space to move and lay out Food and entertainment good Air Canada is always a great airline to fly"
Cons: "Delay in SF departure attributed to "weather" resulted in missed connection and a 5 hour wait in Vancouver. Transfer from international flights to Canadian at YVR is quite cumbersome and involves much walking."
Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"
Pros: "They held the plane in order for me to catch it after my late flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The crew member promised my $60 in checked bags would still follow me, but when I arrived In Vancouver I was Informed they were still in Chicago. My seat did not recline and my reading lamp was broken after paying $80 for the upgraded seat. The flight attendant was a bit grouchy about it. The WiFi was very sporadic and didn’t work for the majority of the trip.. which I wasted 900 miles on. Not impressed this time around."
Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."
Pros: "Offered drinks and snacks."
Cons: "My suitcase's handle was damaged by the time it reached baggage claim. I will need to buy a new suitcase now."
Pros: "Overall this was an pretty average flight. The planes were on time and the service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."
Pros: "serice agents at the airport were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "flight was changed to go thru atlanta. the connecting flight was delayed 3.5 hrs making its departure at 1:51AM. ugh."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaos. By the time my group is called, an announcement is made about running low on overhead space and some may need to check in their carry ones. Happens on every United flight? On the flight from Vancouver, the wifi wasn't even working."
Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."
Pros: "Tv, food, outlet to charge phone."
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly and seats were small and uncomfortable for a 4.5h flight."
Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"

Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"
Pros: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"

Pros: "No carry on fee .. nice staff .. on time!"
Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Check in at the airport with United was terrible. The United agent on duty (Sandra Mcelroy) was rude, slow to process us, extremely inattentive. She either didn't know how to or was unwilling to verify our infant in arms' ticket, check our baggage, or receive a cash payment for our checked bags after she sent us to the kiosk for a third time. She never greeted us and only addressed us when absolutely necessary but had plenty of time to talk with her coworkers. It took nearly an hour for her to process our check in. She actually made another customer cry."
Pros: "There were snacks & water provided."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and the luggage took a long time to arrive, it was 4am, and then there was a taxi line and there were no taxis available and each one took time for each passenger."
Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"
Pros: "Crew- very efficient on the ground andon the air"
Cons: "Inner flights no entertainment. Maybe dhould go wifi like LH"
Pros: "Crew was nice just snacks flight was turbulent no one fault"
Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"
Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."
Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."
Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."
Cons: "The seats had no infotainment system No food Cramped"
Cons: "We were trying to print our boarding passes and computer didn't recognize our bar code. United employees were trying to help us and they couldn't print it either until we approched counter. We didn't see that much of professionalism on United employees. At one point one of the employees told us to go back to Air Canada counter and I thought she was not trained properly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and 45 minutes because engine did not start. Had us deplane. Caused us to miss our connecting flight and we had to wait 6 hours for another one."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"
Pros: "Informative Captain. Made up time in transit."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not exist and a fee was charged to access content online. This does not meet industry standards. During boarding, airline agent told me my one allowable carry-on item had to be checked because of limited space in overhead bins. Upon boarding the plane, there was clearly room for more luggage to be stored overhead. One flight crew member served complimentary beverages by serving the entire can. The other served by pouring only some of the can into a cup. Again, this does not meet industry standards, from the perspective of a reasonably well-traveled flier."
Cons: "We boarded and waited then was told we would wait more for people on a late flight then something wrong was found on the flight. After over an hour we were able to get off. Then we were told about 20 minutes later to get back on. No one can see the future. What i did like is that you let us get off the plane for a while before our 3 hour destination. Wish that would have happened sooner. This. Was on the flight from Boston to Salt Lake"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and the cushions felt like and old cushion on a wood board."
Pros: "I gave it a four because the airline put safety first. Though we had to change plane due to some funny sound made by the engine, the wait was worth it. The crew were helpful and the actual flight was smooth."
Pros: "Nice new 737-800, friendly crew"
Cons: "I volunteered to be bumped to a later flight, which was handled well; however my checked bags did not get transferred. The baggage desk at YVR was very helpful, but the United lost bags office was unreachable by phone. They always had very long hold times."
Pros: "At our origin the flight was delayed and they were gratious enough to switch us to united so we didn't miss our connection. Delta hooked us up! Tight connection in Atlanta, but the flight to Seattle was awesome."
Cons: "Planes have mechanical issues, but they could have done more things at the same time like reboard while the post repair system checks ran and sort out baggage weights so that there weren't delays on top of delays. That was after not noticing issues with the plane until after waiting for late passengers and taxiing out. We arrived 4hrs late for a 3hr flight. They also only had one agent to rebook flights and assign hotels at the end even though they had hours to know the connections would be missed."
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "Leg room seemed better. Flight was early arriving in Vancouver. Flight crew kept us informed about slight turbulence and arrival time, Pilot landed plane very smoothly."
Cons: "This is minor: the small package of complimtary food (a sweet wafer) was not good. Something more substantial would have been appreciated for the long flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Cons: "The plane is very old"
Pros: "Staff was professional and friendly flight was smooth and nice."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "This flight was delayed an hour as United had maintenance issues with the plane. United sadly has a bad reputation for deferred maintenance on its planes in order to cut costs. They don't care about customer satisfaction, just the bottom line."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding on and off the plane was very easy"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortably. We had a nearly 6 hour flight with no tvs which wasn't great either."
Cons: "Hasnt even left yet. 3 hours late"
Pros: "On time. The crew was good."
Cons: "Could not pick seats online. Party of 3 seated in 3 different rows"
Cons: "Online check in was ambiguous and I wasnt sure if I as checked in or not. The gate did not have scanners for the boarding passes on the united mobile app."
