Pros: "The flight, seating, and co Siri on of the aircraft"
Cons: "The crew welcomed us to SFO AT 4:41 pm. We taxied, then towed, to a construction site next to a parking garage out beyond the international terminal. We deplaned to the ground and boarded buses that traversed the airport back to the domestic terminals and we got to baggage claim 50 minutes later. Missed my bus north by minutes. Not happy!"

Pros: "I love the biscoff cookies. Smaller plane. I had legroom though!! Business as usual. Good flight decent take off and landing."

Pros: "Fast flight. Pleasant crew."

Cons: "My seat 4a I should have moved to 1 or 2 a"

Pros: "Lisa, the flight attendant was awesome."

Pros: "The flight was fine and the crew was great and all was well until we tried to land in Seattle and missed the attempt due to fog and next thing we knew we were headed to Spokane!"

Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"

Pros: "Leg room, good customer service"

Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Couldn't get seat next to my wife. Both stuck in middle seats even booking month ahead."

(-_-) really? I will think twice before flying with this airline again"

Pros: "Friendly staff, free WiFi."

Cons: "We picked our seats for both round trip flights well in advance and we ended up being assigned less desirable seating on both flights. On the first flight we we ended up in the very last row next to a lavatory and on the second flight we had seats where the backs did not recline also. Go figure!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Not much. Delta is superior"

Cons: "Was not offered a drink in first class prior to take off."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Well for one my seat was broken. At the beginning of the flight they said “there are meals for purchase available” when i asked for one they said they were all out but then gave out to other customers. Their attitudes were horrible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Amazing Crew and had a real airplane to ilm for a change!"

Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."

Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"

Cons: "I feel like all the problems the aircraft had it should've been repaired before trying to use it, upon boarding they told us the left engine had to be started from an external source, as a new flyer that was terrifying to hear"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."

Cons: "I now know the downside of buying through Kayak, the ticket is non-upgradable even when seats became open and I offered to pay for the upgrade."

Pros: "new airbus plane. great luggage bins"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The attention to detail from the crew, and the friendliness"

Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes late. The food is ridiculous."

Cons: "they did not serve food in my section at all."

Cons: "They ran out of overhead space we had to check a carry on bag. My video monitor didn't work so that was disappointing."

Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "My wife's pre-check was not added to her ticket. Plane was extremely late taking off. No entertainment on the flight."

Pros: "Comfort ability to board earlier and being able to relax in Sky Club with good choice of refreshments. Staff on plane were very attentive as responded quickly to requests. Check in was much quicker than previously and staff were very friendly. I like being able to get boarding passes online which makes boarding much easier. I liked having space for comfort by seat"
Cons: "Some airlines have free first suitcase for comfort. If you checked in a little later overhead bin may be filled."

Pros: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."

Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"

Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."

Pros: "They let us preboard because of my handicap. And we slep through boarding til we landed."

Cons: "not prepared in Maintenance to fix a very small problem in an efficient timeframe. Also, this plane was very dirty ..bathroom, walls, seat rails, floors....not good Delta"

Cons: "They wouldn’t accommodate with seating and I couldn’t sit with the people I came with. Also they served almonds and I’m allergic. The guy sitting next to me requested almonds causing my eyes to swell and my throat to close"

Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."

Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."

Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Was able to recline back and had excellent leg room. Area looked clean and organized."
Cons: "Captain didn't say much before or during the flight like most do. Not a big deal-it was a short flight."

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

Pros: "Not crowded. Short flight."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "In flight entertainment was great, lots of snack options."
Cons: "A lot of confusion between ground crew and plane crew. They insisted on prepping the plane for food service even though we had waited for several hours due to mechanical issues and weather delays. It was 3am folks and the last flight leg was 45 min... we all just wanted to get to our destination. It took 50 minutes to prep that plane... there were infants crying and people were miserable and exhausted. The only word that comes to mind is dehumanizing."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."

Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."

Pros: "There were only two lines. The economy line took so long because there were many passengers checking in their fish catch boxes. So those of us with only one baggage were lumped with them. There was no option to tag your own bag if you alr day checked in, as it was the same checking and bag drop line."
Cons: "If we were standing in line for a long time, I hope they can increase the number of counters. They can also dispense with the nonsense chitchat. It's not needed, just move it along. The roving staff should to remind those next in line to prepare their documents, it seems the lady at the counter had to ask for photo ID every time!"

Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"

Pros: "Short eas6 trio"
Cons: "Lack if parking at airport"

Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."

Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."

Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and there was more than enough. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "On my flight from Munich to Atlanta, the movies and tv series wouldn't play. Only the games worked."

Pros: "On time, great service"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "In flight internet didn't work at all Seats were incredibly tight"

Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."

Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."

Pros: "Extremely miserable"
Cons: "Lots of delays and surprise cancelations"

Pros: "Flight, plane, and crew were great."
Cons: "MEX customs was a nightmare."

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "A more organized boarding process"

Pros: "Crew was good, food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment, I saw the Wifi stuff when I bought the ticket, but there was no internet connection there. Besides, no movies, no screen... boring."

Cons: "Be in time, over 1 hr delayed."

Cons: "Over booked"

Cons: "We have problems with the tickets of my das y mam we have to pay $600 dólar more"

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "I lost my flight, really slow service (40 minutes on the line), bad actitude, NO REFUND. This is mi first and last flight purchased by Aeromexico. I hate you Aeromexico."

Pros: "Luggage was found that was good"
Cons: "Horrible day nobody here to guide you or help you and then charge you an arm and a leg."

Pros: "They tried to move people with quickly onto the plane"
Cons: "The boarding staff was kinda clueless how to organize the hoard of passengers. The randomly decided what group to board first without properly communicating. That causes the confusion and frustration of the passengers who thought they would board first."

Pros: "Flight on time, all personal was very helpful and kind"
Cons: "No choices for breakfast and the one served on first class not so great."

Pros: "The service was basically nonexistent to help fix. Sitting in tarmac at another unplanned airport - w no announcement from the calf! - I thought to call Aeromexico to have them help me reschedule. the agent didn’t understand the issue and couldn’t figure out why I was at an unplanned airport though I shared this w them multiple time. Amazing the flight system was not updated. Finally reaching my connection airport the counter help was terrible and in spite made me go through some special security to get my bag. I was treated like a criminal ... after arriving at the desk the new agent said it was no problem that my bag was checked thru. Exiting I was again given the once over... plenty more but Aeromexico, nah."

Pros: "Ease in ticketing."
Cons: "The hardest part was the long layover. I didn’t dress warmly enough, so I had to keep moving!"

Pros: "nothing at all, awful flight, an awful person sitting next to us, just awful all around nothing good to say about it"
Cons: "everything awful seating, awful crew, a very disappointing flight is sad that Mexican airlines provide one of the worst services is there to offer"

Pros: "Arriving at my destination without any problems"
Cons: "Boarding at Lima wasn’t well organized. Delayed arrival at Mexico City due to bad managing. Food wasn’t good, except the desert. Wifi in the plane wasn’t working, neither charging ports. Baggage checked not to my final destination, so had go with all my luggage through customs again."

Pros: "Servicio. Puntualidad."
Cons: "Todo bien"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, leg room much better than any US airline. Crew is smart and efficient."

Pros: "Um nothing"
Cons: "Checked in online and got the check in line only to have the lady tell me I’m too late and that I never checked in. They did manage to charge my baggage fee though? I had to book a different flight and tackled on another $500 dollars to my trip. Will bever use my Aeromexico club premier again."

Pros: "The food, space and movies!"

Pros: "The only thing I liked was that the airplane seats in both airplanes were comfortable."
Cons: "Their system says one thing but in the airport they charge you otherwise. I had purchased my ticket with 2 checked bags allowance only to go to the airport and pay 235 because apparently I didn't!. And I had called not once but SEVERAL times to confirm that I had that 2 checked bags allowance. Furthermore, they told me I would have to wait for my bags and transfer them to the connection band, but guess what? I waited an entire hour for my bags only to be told my an airport employee not even a Aeromexico one, that most likely my bags already went to their destiny. My flight was in 1 hour from then and I almost lost it thanks to them giving incorrect information to their customers."

Pros: "Free entertainment was nice."
Cons: "This flight was fine the next flight was not"

Cons: "I needed assistance and it was kindly provided"

Cons: "Rough Landing"

Pros: "Everything was really good"

Pros: "Vuelo acorde con el horario establecido"
Cons: "Regular atención del personal en el aeropuerto"

Cons: "Crew standing in the back talking to each other with their backs on us"

Pros: "Close for connecting and had lots of staff to get you there on time."
Cons: "Food mediocre"

Pros: "The in flight meal was just what we needed and they got us to San Jose safe and sound. No complaints!"

Pros: "Ontime and pleasant"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "The delay when departing, and the attention of the flight attendants. Also very limited kind of beverages."

Pros: "La comodidad la amabilidad de las personas."
Cons: "La comida"

Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."

Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"

Pros: "Staff was helpful and friendly at Guadalajara airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. I wasn't notified of luggage fees and had to pay in 1000 Mexican pesos plus taxes. My husband is handicapped and we had to be shuttled from terminal 2 to Tom Bradley. It was very inconvenient!"

Pros: "Plane attendants were nice"
Cons: "They lost our luggage and we spent over 2 hrs trying to figure out what happened and they wrote down all the wrong info and the info they gave us to contact them wasn't accurate so it was a headache just trying to reach anyone!!"

Pros: "I did not like anything. Plane was old, seats were uncomfortable, no leg room, my seat was broken (tilted forward and when I asked if it could be fixed staff did nothing), songs repested themselves, and customs was a nightmare."
Cons: "Read comments above. The flight was tbe worst ever."

Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Entire experience. Fly a better airline"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and no one from Aeromexico wants to help."

Pros: "Plane service was good"
Cons: "Connection in Mexico city was a horrible experience. More than 2 hours to go thru customs. Seberal people lost connection flights. I will never ever will take this flight again."

Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"

Cons: "Time to wait to drop bag, same line to drop bag than to check-in? Really? Also this dumb nee policy of charging for the bags even when ticket was purchased way before this policy started"

Pros: "1. Food was and drink was decent 2. In flight entertainment was good 3. Crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "1. Flight was delayed over an hour due to flight crew arriving late 2. Paid for a premium seat and space was just as cramped as a non premium seat 3. Boarding was a free for all no control by staff for boarding zones.. Also when are airlines ever going to learn to board passengers from the rear to front first? 4. Mexico city landing was terrible, we all felt like the rear of the aircraft was fish tailing"

Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"

Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."

Pros: "There was no entertainment on the plane. It would ne nice if they had wi-fi"

Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a bad mood that night. One of the flight attendants hit my elbow as he was speeding through the aisle, causing me to knock over my drink. He didn't apologize or try to help. The other one"

Pros: "Me parece buena la idea del Gogoinflight para poder ver contenido de entretenimiento en aviones sin pantalla."
Cons: "Sin embargo, la señal de WiFi se desconectaba constantemente. Durante el vuelo tuve que re-conectarme al wifi no menos de 20 veces. Así no se disfruta."

Pros: "the inflight movie."
Cons: "The flight was suppose to take off from Mexico City at 945 PM however nobody gave an explanation nobody knew the time or even the GATE I got to the airport at 6 PM, the flight took off at 1210 AM not only that I get on the plane and the AEROMEXICO crew had a really messed up attitude like they didnt care, I wanted to buy a gift for my wife from the magazine they had and the lady with a attitude simply said we dont have it, and I could keep going but It was a really bad experience for me."

Pros: "the crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was a little delayed movies or series might be interesting to have as an option to watch"

Cons: "No food or beverage service during covid-19"

Cons: "The numerous delays The small aircraft with overhead bins that couldn't handle what I always carry on normal airplanes. The plane didn't have entertainment Missing plug ins that most airplanes have today."

Pros: "Comfy seats and legroom in first class"
Cons: "Expected more than cookies for food in first class."

Pros: "by airlines"
Cons: "flying next day trough LAX"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "flight was delayed two hours because they couldn't find a single American airlines employee to sign off on some log book.sat on tarmac two hours because no one could sign a piece of paper!!! so obviously we missed our connecting international flight to dublin. called american customer svc, they made us call british airways, british airways said we had to call kayak, kayak said we had to call American. thanks for all the great customer svc. this is why everyone hates flying and all airlines are garbage. then finally in chicago american customer svc desk said they rebooked us on a British airways flight the same night, we traversed (ran) the entire chicago ohare airport only to find out british airways said we were not on that flight, were completely full and we had to go back to american. literally had to leave airport to get on train to go back to american terminal. they swear we are now (the next day) on this aer lingus flight despite our inability since last night to try and check in to that flight because aer lingus website doesnt work, no one answers their customer service number and their ticket counter at airport doesnt open until noon. suffice it to say we are still not on a flight to Dublin, ive missed an entire day of a limited vacation, and i will NEVER fly american again."

Pros: "Horrible landing. Also-landed early and srive around for 20 min with no announcement from cockpit"

Cons: "3 hours late leaving Dublin, with poor communicstion on the monitors as to gate info. not to mention the lateness."

Pros: "Food - What can I say about pretzels except "Okay"?!"

Pros: "Nada."
Cons: "I have never been treated as poorly as I was by the old biddy that physically took the guitar out of my hands as I was trying to board the plane today. I travel as a professional musician at least once a week and I’ve never been threatened with arrest for having an instrument on my person."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."

Pros: "crew friendly"

Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."

Pros: "Upgrade"
Cons: "No food"

Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"

Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "everything fine"
Cons: "having to gate-check our hand luggage"

Pros: "Great staff. Arrived very early. Smooth flight ."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Direct smooth"
Cons: "A little snooty attendants tight seats"

Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"

Pros: "."
Cons: "short flight herded like cattle. not much about it"

Pros: "It didn't take long for anything."

Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"

Cons: "The information of code share was not clear..so I was expected to fly with JAL..."

Pros: "Almost on time"
Cons: "Boarding process, PA system volume very low at PHX"

Pros: "Met expectations. Landed early."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected"

Cons: "Delayed because of cleaning crew showing up late.... Totally avoidable. Gate crew was not helpful"

Pros: "Customer service at American Airlines was amazingly good. They figured out the mess that the third party agent, WEBJET.COM made and fixed it."
Cons: "The third party agent, webjet.com, was horrible. American airlines contacted them several times about canceling the ABQ-ORD flight and they never responded. WEBJET.COM did not put their name on the electronic ticket so I was unaware of who to contact. Finnair was not particularly helpful. They discontinued my chat conversation and didn't have an option to call back so I had to wait for 20 minutes. American Airlines was impressively helpful. They figured out that WEBJET.COM had canceled one leg of our fight and AA.com reinstated the flight. American had also contacted WEBJET.COM numerous times and WEBJET.COM had never responded."

Pros: "Remodeled plane style"
Cons: "Liked it"

Cons: "Boarding took forever and I'm a Premium passenger."

Pros: "On time, upgraded at Dallas"

Cons: "Couldn't get my boarding pass. My name was wrong in your system, had to go to American Airlines desk for assistance and the attendant couldn't locate my name. There was a service attendant at the Alaskan airline service desk."

Pros: "Boarding was impossible! The line was longer than the jet bridge itself and we had to wait after being called for a 1/2 hour."

Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"

Pros: "Price and schedule."
Cons: "Do not like how this or any airlines board passengers."

Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour. Because of that, I missed my appointment."

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Late take off with no explanation No on board entertainment Other isle we sat in was even more cramped than the others."

Cons: "It turns out that this flight was delayed, so I would have missed my connections. Huge thanks to the gate agent from United who rebooked me to San Francisco and from there to Frankfurt and then Prague."

Cons: "They charged me extra for a carryon, my flight was delayed, and they made me miss my connection by holding us on the tarmac for 40 minutes. Two hours waiting in line to rebook the flight for 3pm the next day. No hotel or transportation recompense. United made an enemy for life."

Pros: "crew friendly, talked to us, made sure we had everything we needed for a good flight"
Cons: "Took off late due to weather"

Cons: "45 minute delay due to passenger self-injury, then turned around half-way across the Atlantic due to another passenger medic."

Pros: "We made good time, and the crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "My seat kept reclining on its own and had no headrest. Takeoff was rough, even for Albuquerque."

Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."

Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."

Cons: "Baggage fees, food fees WiFi fees"

Pros: "Breakfast"
Cons: "Pilots driving waaaay to fast"

Pros: "Good landing, an I arrived earlier."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "First, our flight was cancelled and they texted us with an alternative flight leaving a day later, with a 9 hour layover! Um, excuse me? Since this was a weekend trip we would have had to turn around and get back on a flight back to SF a few hours later. I called and they didn't even offer the option to refund the ticket! I finally got us on an alternative flight leaving earlier after waiting for 30 minutes to speak with a supervisor because the person I initially spoke with had no power to do anything to help. We ended up flying Alaska Airlines on the way there and I wish we had originally booked through them because the way back was AWFUL. They wouldn't seat my partner and I together because we were flying Economy class, which they reminded us of repeatedly when I complained. The agents claimed they had no power to do anything because of the computer system which randomly selects your seats. I asked what about people traveling with small children and they didn't seem to have an answer. Oh yeah, that's another thing. As if we got a better deal than with any other airline out there after all the bag fees. The Economy class/the majority of the people flying have no carry on allowance. By the way, when we got on the flight we were able to sit next to each other because the seats next to us weren't even occupied. Ridiculous. Never flying United again. I've been bumped off of flights and had bad experiences before but this was the last straw for me."

Cons: "Did not have the free united entertainment on wifi. Only offered direct tv for a fee"

Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "No movie or tv"

Pros: "Enjoyed the stroopwaffels that were handed out as snacks."

Pros: "The window seat"

Cons: "Rude crew- not service oriented"

Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "Upset about not being allowed a carry on luggage."

Pros: "Check in was super easy. Seats are tiny. The screens on the backs of the seats are annoying, with nothing worth watching."

Pros: "Horrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "It was fine. I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."

Pros: "Good experience with United. I don't usually fly with this airline wi I was kinda hesitant, but it was ok."
Cons: "I don't like that there is no free in flight entertainment."

Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather. Rebooking was a zoo, had to pay for hotel room and worst of all waited over an hour at baggage claim to get our bags back. It's taking us 2 days to get from Albuquerque to Austin."

Pros: "Everyone was quite friendlly and personable, especially our flight attendants."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the captain over the speaker. The inflight entertainment was expensive"

Cons: "2hrs late"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late, missed my connection, have to fly out in the morning. Have 3 hrs to sleep & be back at the airport."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I was warned about booking with this airline but I had to see it for myself before listening to others now I wish I had done just that. First of all, outdated planes, no Tv screens, expensive wifi. How is it only $3 one way and then $5 the other especially after making us wait for 3 hours and 22 minutes extra. Exhausting flights both to Albuquerque from Houston and from Houston to Boston. Poor communication. Poor planning ahead. Very dissatisfied. Going with Jet Blue from now on. They never disappoint, even if there was a delay in flight."

Cons: "Water only"

Pros: "All the United personnel from gate agents to pilot and crew were very nice and pleasant and friendly. They seemed to take pride in their work."
Cons: "I am tall (6' 4") and the seats are still too cramped. Would a 1/2" more really lose millions of dollars per year. Stop treating people like sardines."

Pros: "We departed on time and arrived at least half an hour early."
Cons: "The seats lacked those tabs on the side of the headrest that fold forward to help hold your head while sleeping and little leg room."

Cons: "No outlet to charge my phone"

Cons: "- There wasn't space for my bag to go overhead - There were no options for food or entertainment - My seat was very cramped"

Cons: "Seats could provide lower-lumbar support."

Pros: "Had a great seat on the plane Missed my next flight the service people were very helpful getting me connections to my destination"
Cons: "delayed because of weather in Denver"

Pros: "On time, ahead of schedule"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, United blows"

Pros: "Biggest hassle of many flights these days is dealing with on board luggage. If people insist on bring all luggage into the cabin, they should be required to have one piece under the seat and only one overhead."
Cons: "Drives me nuts to find there is no gate available when we arrive."

Cons: "Seated in last row no recline on chair!"

Pros: "Smooth flight once we got in the air."
Cons: "Didn't like the delay 2-3hours"

Pros: "Quick flight back home, crew understood my needs of having to move 18 days from acl replacement surgery."

Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."

Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."

Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Seats are narrower and make for a lot of discomfort when stuck in the middle seat. I do not like other stranger's bodies touching mine. That is just wrong."

Pros: "I think Topeka was her name. She was a very good flight attendant"
Cons: "The gate changed after we checked in which was only 30 mins before. Almost missed the flight because we were waiting at the wrong gate. Earlier and accurate description of gate is what is needed. Or someone from united to visit the other gate and announce there is a change to help people out"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Cramped seating, seat would not recline at all. Departure delayed due to poor airplane maintenance."

Pros: "My connecting flight was way late, but the plane was held for me and a few others in Denver. Because it was the last flight of the evening I don't know what I would have done if left at the airport indefinitely. I am grateful the plane was held. And regret any inconvenience this may have caused others."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "-Was a United flight despite being billed as Lufthansa, I always try and avoid United as I have had bad experiences in the past. -Was unable to choose seats online. -Upon check in was told that only middle seats were available for my partner and I away from each other even though we showed up 6 hours early in order to get good seats as we couldn't check in online. -We then paid extra to get seats next to each other (250 bucks) and the entertainment systems in those seats were broken. -When we told the flight attendant staff they said there was nothing they could do and were rude. -When trying to explain the situation to United Customer service they were also rude."

Cons: "Absolutely no leg room. Much less than most major airlines."
