"Me and my son are first time travelers! And we had a AWESOME flight!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed causing the connection impossible. Delta provides no way to communicate directly with a human making rebooking impossible. The lack of care destroyed our family reunion."

Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"

Pros: "Trip was ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour"

Pros: "The screens, quality, travel, attendants"

Pros: "Great crew! Very friendly!"

Pros: "It was great, friendly staff"

Pros: "Middle seats were not booked. Cabin appeared very clean. Bathrooms were kept tidy. Very friendly staff. Appreciated cold drinks and the snacks."

Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late to board and depart."

Cons: "The exit row door in 12B kept making a high pitch squealing noise...very unnerving"

Pros: "Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Delayed bording 1.5 hours due to staffing issues"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Having cocktails available on-board"

Cons: "Boarding announcements were hardly audible. We chose comfort seats for extra payment but that still did not turn out to be comfort class. Seat classes are confusing. No temperature was taken before boarding."

Cons: "The wheel to my luggage broke off in deltas care so if that could have not happened it would have been way better."

Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."

Cons: "Love delta. Everything was excellent"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked the fact I was put into a quality seat after I had booked a normal economy seat. Nice upgrade. I got lots of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a maintenance issue. We made up some of the time, but it was an issue."

Pros: "I love that the plane has extra space available between seats (with no one in the middle) & that everyone was encouraged to keep their mask on at all times."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "This COVID to be over"

Cons: "Comfier seats"

Pros: "Sanitized, open middle seats, comfortable"
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 40+ minutes due to our gate being blocked by another plane. We almost missed our connection and had to run through the airport with our luggage and the staff at our second gate yelling “hurry up” at us like it was our fault."

Pros: "Seat size"
Cons: "Everything was just fine"

Cons: "We had a 2.5 hour delay because there was someone missing in the crew. It sounded like it hadn’t been properly planned for the flight so it was frustrating. However, once that person showed up, everything was great and the crew was very sweet"

Pros: "One flight attendant was adamant about a passenger across from me, covering his nose AND mouth during the flight and constantly checked to make sure he was following the rules."
Cons: "The safety instructions portion of the flight was not thorough. They just held up the large card and stood there. No true demonstration which was important to me as I was sitting in the emergency exit row."

Pros: "As expected of Delta. With Covid, even the food service understandably was limited. They had prepackaged goodies, albeit not much flexibility, but I had no complaints. Mid row was empty per Covid, for flight comfort, this was somewhat a plus. Knowing air was filtered with HEPA filters every 2 minutes with fresh oxygen and outside air mix was also reassuring."

Pros: "Great crew and friendly"

Cons: "Well if my future father in law was on the flight it would have been wonderful, but he passed away July 7th, and I did get refunded, and we are mourning his loss and keep getting notifications about the flight and emails which makes it very difficult mentally. So it would be nice if Delta would get their process of refunds especially when it's a death to maybe not get notified. I was the one that purchased the tickets for him in April."

Pros: "Crew great....moved passengers around near us for Covid related separation."
Cons: "Cramped.....too many seats in too small of a plane....I'm 6ft / 190 lbs"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive. I appreciated the extra spacing between passengers."
Cons: "I would have liked to see alcohol served."

Pros: "Empty middle seat; disinfectant wipes. I know these measures were implemented because of COVID but I wouldn’t mind having these last past the pandemic!"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"

Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"

Pros: "The plane was very new everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing considering the situation"

Cons: "The food service on the 3 hour leg but we knew that ahead of time so..."

Pros: "Some Delta planes have headrest Screens. Both my flights did and love watching movies they offer at eye level then to use iPad and have to bed down to watch. You can’t tell why planes have seat back screens but sure glad my flights dis"
Cons: "Snack choice was only two items Cheezit or Cookies. Neither sounded good to me."

Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"

Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."

Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."

Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."

Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"

Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."

Pros: "Didn’t fly to Detroit . Delta changed flight to Atlanta & then toFort Meyers"

Pros: "Delayed 40 minutes first flight out at 5am. Missed connecting flight by 2 minutes."
Cons: "No assistance in helping us get to our destination"

Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hr"

Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"

Cons: "Offer a beverage"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours because they had No crew to operate the flight! Such poor customer service on Americans part as well. No answers and rude agents when you tried to ask any questions"

Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"

Pros: "The fight was awesome from takeoff to landing. This has been one of the first flights that my ears did not pop and hurt in years!!! We took off about 10 minutes late waiting on a crew member but made the time up in the air. Great flight!!"

Pros: "Friendly, professional, polite, perfect."

Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing bad on this particular flight but im traumatized from my auckland to sydney flight"

Cons: "Took off late and arrived late. Took15 minutes to taxi to gate"

Pros: "We received an upgrade for our seats, during the flight the staff were very attentive to us. The flight was quiet and calm."

Cons: "Nothing bad to comment on as the trip was a smooth trip"

Pros: "I like the fact we got to Dayton 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we don't have access to the overhead"

Cons: "A few issues: 1) I was not given seat tgth with my 9 year old and was not helped in finding seats together 2) they lost my bag after I took it through customs and I'm still (a week already) waiting for it."

Pros: "Friendly staff. In-flight entertainment included."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."

Cons: "The big delay (almost 4 hours) makes me loose my trip to Canada on the same day."

Pros: "Ground delay but we still got there in time and I made a close connectionshort flight"

Pros: "The flight was fast and mostly smooth, you can't control turbulence. The flight attendants were very friendly. Turned out to be a great trip."
Cons: "Nothing was bad overall. It was a very nice flight"

Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."

Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"

Pros: "Easy direct flight from Detroit to Miami. The flight was on time, and we had no problems. The cost of the flight was approximately $180 round trip, which I thought was a good value."
Cons: "Checking a single bag costs $25 each way, which is irritating when they beg to check all the carry-ons at the gate."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for two hours!"

Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."

Pros: "Clean environment of the terminals and the speed of the shuttle."
Cons: "no comment."

Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."

Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."

Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."

Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"

Cons: "Plane out dated . It was sad. Tinny seats. And again they boarded all group 1 at once. And all of group 2 at once. Should of done by so many seats\rows. It was horrible. I wouldn't fly American again. Unless I won a trip"

Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."

Pros: "The flight qmwent without issue once we took iff"
Cons: "There was maintenance needed on the plane before we could take off and that delayed us further from take off."

Pros: "Economy seating for such a small plane was great."
Cons: "This flight- one of the crew (female) had a miserable attitude. Like we were an inconvenience."

Cons: "Flight could’ve been on time."

Pros: "Left early and arrived early!"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work"

Pros: "Upbeat and attentive crew"
Cons: "Wifi was awful. On a long flight, that's important. The crew's explanation was that when so many people are logged on at once, it kicks someone else off. Which basically means the system wasn't designed for everyone to use."

Pros: "The airbus seats were far more comfortable than the 737-800 seats that we had on the orevious outgoing flight. It shows comfort is possible when the airline selects the right equipment."
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Travelled with my 3 children they had a blast with the comfort and entertainment , next to the amazing professional staff!"
Cons: "THey would have loved the additional choices for food items...."

Pros: "Just outstanding handling of any upcoming issue, comforting travelers, helping lost moms not knowing what to do with their unbehaving sceaming kids. Helping rude business travelers to get more alcohol without charging them, and many challenges along that line, just handled amazingly!"
Cons: "just the food items available, would be so nice to have a few more options for purchase!"

Pros: "The United staff and flight were great, no complaints. We arrived a few minutes too late for my partner to check in with his luggage so they even arranged it so that he would be able to still catch the flight but the luggage would be sent on the following flight. Definitely saved us from the stress of having to be split up and worried on when there would be room for him to catch an alternate flight."
Cons: "My complaints are with Newark airport (EWR). The AirTran took over 10-15min to arrive and when it finally did we had to get off and wait for another one which didn’t have space for everyone so a group of us had to wait even longer for the next one to arrive. A guy said he missed his flight last time that happened. They had more trains going to the parking lot for customers leaving the airport than they did for people catching their flights! Then there was only one security check in line, even for expedited check in. Despite allocating extra time for our overall commute, we still made it right on time for boarding so make sure to give yourself PLENTY of time when dealing with EWR."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The best part of this flight was getting off the plane and vowing never to fly United again. They, in this experience were no better at doing their job - getting people from one place to another on time with a little comfort and dignity - than the cut rate guys. Miserable 13 hour trip for what should've been 4 hours in the air."
Cons: "13 hours of travel time for what should've been 4 hours on two planes. The first was staffed by a miserable crew who seemed bothered by the notion of having to deal with passengers. The second was staffed by a crew who couldn't see the passengers scrounging for anything to cover up with to keep warm. Both crews lacked any sense of pride and professionalism. Add delays to that and you have a sum total of a miserable trip home."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was attentive"
Cons: "The flight left an hour late. When arrived in Detroit the ground crew left our bags on the plane. It took over another hour to figure out what happened. The attendant was not on duty."

Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."

Pros: "Nothing really everyhing was mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed baggage, smelly flight, food"

Pros: "The flight is on time.... the food is good.... the service is excellent...."
Cons: "Lack of snacks..."

Pros: "There were five flights out of our gate and we couldn't hear who was supposed to board because three people would be cross talking at the same time. All united flights."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They booted me from my first flight, and the rebooking. Finally left on the 10 PM flight and then there was a mix up with my check in bag. No one knew whether it was on an earlier flight or on my flight. United Airlines is full of incompetent employees. Never flying with them again."

Pros: "Boarded quickly, seats had more leg room than I expected."
Cons: "United's check in process for economy fares requires in person check in (you can't check in online) so checking in at Newark was a bit of a hassle."

Pros: "Timely boarding and excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Bumped from two flights due to weather and delayed due to pilots coming in late"

Pros: "seats are comfortable"
Cons: "1)Very cold cabin atmosphere. 2)Very noisy passengers wish the attendants can announce saying "since its a late night flight we request our passengers to keep their voices low" Some people just don't have common sense"

Pros: "The staff was great!!!"
Cons: "The food needs improvement."

Pros: "The plane arrived safely in Newark"
Cons: "The plane left 7 hours late - for a 45 min flight. I got on another flight (only becuase I sought a solution to arri9ving 7 hrs late) but still arrived several hours after my determined arrival time. No compenatio or apology."

Pros: "There was a problem at Newark airport on my way back. The united agent was terrific to successfully secure a different route for me so I could get back home. Many thanks,"

Cons: "I'm still here never got out"

Cons: "5 hr delay"

Pros: "Staff very friendly as always."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Paid for Wi-Fi and it cut out halfway through the flight and was extremely slow so I wasn't able to get much work done. Not worth the purchase."

Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"

Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."

Pros: "Wheelchair service was so helpful for my mother."
Cons: "Over an hour mechanical delay at ALB. We barely made it to our connection. Pretty tense considering I was with an elderly confused mother who would not have dealt well with a delay from Newark to Denver."

Cons: "This was a tiny cramped plane and didnt have much comfort."

Pros: "Cold in hallway for manditory carry on check & anxious that I may not make next flight, . Newark to Ft. Myers"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "My seat didn't recline, no free movies/TV."

Pros: "There was absolutely nothing to like about this trip."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours due to a ground stop at the next airport. Upon finally boarding the plane for a second time, we sat at the Albany airport for abou 40 minutes. When arriving to the Newark airport, there was communication issues and no way for us to get to a terminal so we were stuck on that plane for 2 hours. While stuck on the plane my connecting flight got delayed twice then cancelled. Once finally in the airport, I waited an hour in line for customer service only to tell me they couldn't even put me up in a hotel because it was air traffic controls fault, even though NO other airline was down. They gave me a $10 food voucher, apparently that would fix everything. I had to put myself in a $130 hotel room and being a broke college student I wasn't expecting that. I will never fly united again, it was he worst experience I've ever had and one of the most stressful days. This airline is horrible."

Pros: "I liked getting a snack and drink. I guess all planes are crowded. I didn't have any carrying luggage so I didn't have to worry about overhead storage- which would have been a problem."

Cons: "Very long delay"

Pros: "Crew were friendly. Got us in early (efficent)."
Cons: "Boarding is a free-for-all. No ammenties (charged for tv, internet, and food)."

Pros: "The flight was cancelled three times. Understanding that can happen, it's the fact that United didn't do anything to make everyone relaxed about having the flight delayed. The crew and pilots were very understanding and relayed reasons for delay while ON the plane. The air on the plane was very cold."

Pros: "leg room was not too bad"
Cons: "I needed to ask questions about my flights because of delays and not a single person acted professional at the gates, quite rude responses. On each of my 3 plane changes there was only one attendant actually smiled. Another read from a sheet of paper like she didn't know what to say. Two others never dmiled or said you're welcome after I thanked them. Im used to the friendly staff on Southwest. They are great!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The whole services!"

Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."

Pros: "The Flight was a little delayed but the captain and staff were very apologetic and we made up for lost time during the flight. Had plenty of leg room and was attended to regularly. Staff was very personable and kind."
Cons: "I've flown several times with many different airlines. I have no serious complaints about United, they have their game on point. If anything were to be said it would be to have less broadcasts about everything going on during the flight, not that it's a burden either but sleep is a little hard pressed when you want to hear what it's about."

Pros: "We experienced a lot of turbulence during the flight but the pilot handled the situation extremely well."
Cons: "The turbulence"

Pros: "United crews use to tell me you couldn't preboard with children but they must have changed that policy because they allowed it this time."
Cons: "They always ask a second time for the boarding pass after the first agent scans it. They should tell you to keep it out if they are going to review it a second time."

Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours without any real explanation of why. They ended up moving us to a new gate at the last minute."

Pros: "Fast boarding, close gate"
Cons: "Tight seating"

Cons: "Didn't even get to fly they canceled all my flights with no resolutions"
