Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"The plane was hot. my seatbelt was too small; of the 4 planes we were on on this trip, this was the only belt I had a problem with. The in-flight entertainment screen was not responsive so it was stuck on one movie the entire flight. This experience was very much unlike any other Delta experience."
"Airport experience is exhausting. Extremely long lines for check-in and then even longer lines at TSA. Hand sanitizer stations are almost all empty and in the mens room, people are crowding together to get soap from one dispenser that has just a bit left... flight was no better than Southwest Airlines, and it took over an hour for the bags to start coming out. Delta bag claim attendant just said, "I don't know what's going on with them, just wait a bit longer"."
"As with the outbound flight, this return flight was not full - maybe 40-50%. As they started boarding they announced they located a few people the help with 'load a balance' of the aircraft. What they had done was to compress all passengers in the middle of the plane leaving no space between anyone. It is difficult to understand why everyone is required to wear Masks, then relocated to remove all space between passengers, when there was ample room to allow everyone to be seated with space between."
"Great service during the pandemic."
"As a silver medallion I don’t know how to request upgrade and when I call delta I have been on hold 3 times for over 2 hours each and can’t reach anyone."
"Pilots found a smooth flight path! Wowza!!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming."
Cons: "No baggage space in overheads. Despite being in an early boarding group"
Pros: "We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible."
Cons: "Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle."
Cons: "Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "The crew members were nice and didn't bother while sleep when giving out snacks & drinks (I've had this done to me before, annoying). Plane was comfortable because it wasn't packed, so was able to have a seat empty in-between me. The entertainment offered was really good, the connecting to the Go-inflight WiFi was a bit difficult, but no biggie."
Cons: "THE DELTA TERMINAL AT HARTSFIELD AIRPORT, ATLANTA, IS DIS-ORGANIZED!!!! THERE WAS NO ONE GIVING PROPER INSTRUCTIONS FOR DROPPING BAGS OFF, PEOPLE WERE EVERYWHERE IN EVERY KIND OF MADE LINE!!! ALMOST 30 - 40 MINUTES OF WASTED TIME, THIS AND THE SLOWEST TSA PROCESS CAUSED MANY TO PROBABLY MISS THEIR FLIGHTS, INCLUDING ME (THANKFULLY MY FLIGHT WOUND UP BEING 3HS DELAYED - THAT'S NEXT). DELTA SHOULD INFORM TRAVELERS ABOUT TIMES WITH THEIR BAG DROP AND TSA!!! 3HRS TO GET A SMALL PART THAT ONLY TAKES 2 MINUTES TO FIX, I'M VERY GRATEFUL IT WAS FOUND WHILE ON THE GROUND, BUT AFTER 1 AND HALS HOURS COULDN'T WE HAVE JUST CHANGED PLANES!?!?! I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AFTER 10A, WASN'T UNTIL ALMOST 2P.."
Pros: "everything was just as comforting as it was pre-pandemic"
Pros: "Being upgraded was a GREAT surprise !"
Cons: "I waited for over 40 minutes for someone to answer my call button. And then they just turned it off without asking me or anyone in my row if we needed something."
Pros: "Quick flight with basic service."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Pilots and crew were amazing"
Cons: "It was perfect"
Pros: "The crew was great and very friendly."
Pros: "The little food packets were cool and convenient."
Pros: "We've always enjoyed flying Delta and this trip had been just as nice as the previous ones we have taken through this airline."
Cons: "Our stewardess/stewards seem to be incredibly cranky on this trip and very unapproachable. They must have been having an "off" day I guess."
Pros: "Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly."
Pros: "Crew was solid."
Cons: "Don’t change my seat. Not on time. No food. Luggage with legally checked firearm sent to the wrong airport."
Pros: "Pilots. Flight attendants. Space. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of at the moment"
Cons: "The mask mandate needs to be voluntary ADA violation"
Cons: "It was actually quite good, Delta is by far the airline to use compared with the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great, comfort+ definitely has more leg room."
Cons: "Beer not guaranteed on flight for Delta comfort plus."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours because of storms in Atlanta earlier. This caused us to miss our connection to Fairbanks in Seattle, so we had to spend the night in Seattle at our own cost."
Cons: "connecting flight left without 1/6th of its passengers. Stuck at airport now because of Deltas laziness"
Pros: "Crew is amazing and friendly"
Cons: "Space on airplanes"
Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"
Pros: "delayed, switched to another flight, delayed 3 times...crossed the border at 1am...terrible experience overall"
Pros: "Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!"
Cons: "Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism.."
Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived on time, crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I am over 6 foot so comfort for me isn’t possible. It was an older aircraft so the seat monitor was of the older version but it did work and helped to pass the time while I was in my no leg room seat! I am NOT over weight! With turbulence there was only one opportunity for inflight beverage service."
Pros: "Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA."
Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."
Pros: "On the first leg I liked the entertainment options. There were plenty of current content to watch and the screen was good enough. I still resorted to my iPad after a while but it was more because I wanted to watch something specifically rather than I had to. The food was decent but as usual the good stuff runs out before you get your turn. Order special food next time."
Cons: "I don’t like any airlines boarding process in general. They always seem inefficient and slow. I didn’t like the free headphones they passed out. They’re so awful that they really ruin whatever you’re trying to watch."
Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."
Pros: "Tons of free entertainment on the screen in front of your seat! Movies, games, and details on your flight, all available on your touch screen. USB charging is also available."
Cons: "No one told us they wanted everyone with a roller carry-on to.check their bags. An attendant told my sister that her bag needed to be checked. We did not receive this notification until we were at the gate, boarding."
Pros: "Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered."
Cons: "where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?"
Cons: "Left about 2.5 hours late because of a broken seat of all things. Apparently Delta doesn't bother to have maintenance staff on site at the airport."
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
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!"
"Boarded late. Missed first landing attempt, landed almost an hour late and missed connecting flight."
Pros: "The prices were low and the crew was great. A lot of entertainment options, also!"
Cons: "Boarding was rather disorganized"
Cons: "It was a six hour flight. It would have been great if they Offered a second drink."
Cons: "Plane was too hot!! Ac nor working !"
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Pros: "They held the flight for us."
Cons: "Something to eat"
Cons: "No more comments!"
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "plug ins"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Plane was late for takeoff and we arrived 30 minutes after scheduled time. They didn’t announce a delay or apologize."
Pros: "Nicole and I really like the Economy Plus seating with the extra legroom. It is a good compromise between sitting in cramped Economy seating and spending way too much money in Business Class."
Cons: "I wish that the Seattle Tacoma Airport has an Admiral's Club Lounge. Actually, I might as well fess up... I wish that EVERY airport had an Admiral's Club Lounge. I also wish it would be possible to "gift" miles to family members. I would love to have my son and daughter-in-law take advantage of my miles to go on a honeymoon."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat comfort and space aboard."
Cons: "Prior to boarding, a gate attendant talked to the passengers in a VERY condescending way with regard to their carry on luggage. The original plane had mechanical problems, identified after half the passengers had already boarded. It was stressful enough without this person raising her voice and talking to us as though we were children."
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "The flight comfort was very bad. The plane was extremely warm and people we beginning to feel bad. Several mentioned it and asked multiple times to have the the cabin air conditioning turned down"
Pros: "Nothing. I missed this flight because of a delay of my flight on Friday."
Cons: "Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night."
Pros: "The attendant in first class was really good at his job. The rest seemed a bit lost"
Cons: "The food. The "lasagna" looked and tasted like it came from chef boyardee can"
Pros: "No issues - which is what I expect"
Cons: "USB chargers on seats"
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Pros: "Service was wonderful and flight pretty much smooth for the 6;5 hour ride back to Seattle. I do enjoy taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Had a 350 pound gentleman in the seat in front of me and had he had no idea of how stressed I was when he would try to adjust his to go back further."
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."
Pros: "Nothing, this was a miserable flight."
Cons: "Gate at Philadelphia was tiny with not enough space for everyone on the plane, it was a 6 hour flight and no snacks beyond pretzels were available-not even for purchase. I'd just come off an 8 hour international flight where I was provided lunch, ice cream, a pot pie snack and frequent beverage service. Somehow as soon as you are flying domestic on a slightly shorter flight American Airlines thinks its okay to treat customers like garbage-nothing but some sad pretzels and 2 rounds of drink service was provided for a 6 hour flight. The seats were super uncomfortable with no head rest, no personal entertainment devices were provided, and there was no general entertainment for the whole plane-seriously I've never been so bored. I would have fallen asleep from boredom but the seat was too uncomfortable so I couldn't even do that. The plane landed in Seattle but sat without unloading passengers for 20 minutes because the gate crew wasn't ready. We didn't get our checked baggage for over an hour after landing. When asked, customer service reps said that the S gate was far from baggage claim-seriously I'm not sure how that is a reasonable excuse. Other airlines arrive into S gates and have timely baggage claim service. American Airlines has no standard for timely baggage claim service like other airlines (Alaska) so there were no repercussions for such late baggage service. We left the airport with our luggage over 90 minutes after the plane landed. The entire experience is just another example of American Airlines of why the terrorists won't even fly American Airlines. I was seriously disappointed to find out that the British Airways flights we booked were operated by American instead of BA crews. I seriously will never select this option (or fly American) again if I can help it."
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Pros: "Had row to ourselves."
Cons: "Entertainment arm rest did not work, flight attendants we're not very attentive to used items left on tray s to pick up. Empy cans ad wrapper s say for 3 hours before being picked up. Middle rest room was left very dirty due to bad hygene of passengers."
Cons: "Flight across the US had poor quality meal service, no charging port and no entertainment. Despite paying for an exit seat with more leg room the seat was very narrow and uncomfortable for the long flight."
Pros: "Seats in general Economy ended up being fairly comfortable and headrests would bend enough to actually support my head while sleeping. Nice to have granual baggage tracking info in the AA app."
Cons: "Overhead entertainment video quality was horrible. Awful user interface for trying to figure out and use the personal device streaming entertainment. Did not order food on the flight, but options were very limited for a 5.5 hour night-time flight (8p EST -> 11p PST)"
Cons: "Crew told us bulshit story about strong winds, even though flight times were normal. Diverted the flight to DFW, where we stayed for almost 2 hours fo refueling."
Pros: "Only good thing about the flight is the price."
Cons: "I do not like the two hour delay, after a hour maybe consider getting another plane."
Cons: "The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine."
Pros: "The flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "Gaye agent refused to let me take my medically necessary medical equipment and meds on board. She refused to look at my Dr note that TSA had no problems with after screening. It was humiliating and horrible!! I have a video ad well as statements on the flight from other passengers regarding how she treated me it was horrible!!"
Cons: "No entertainment and no gate printed on my ticket. My flight to Dallas was delayed and I had to waste time figuring out what gate to take a train to."
Pros: "Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken."
Pros: "Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly with our girls and accommodating with switching around our seats so we could sit together."
Cons: "There weren't any screens, which surprised me since our 3 other flights had them, and we unfortunately didn't have a backup plan. Our kids were disappointed. Also in order to sit with our young children we were only given the option to sit in the very last row that doesn't recline which was difficult seeing as the flight took place in the middle of the night according to our bodies. No actual food was provided despite it being a 6 hour dinner time flight."
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Pros: "It was not a full flight, so I was given an aisle instead of a middle seat...for which I was grateful."
Cons: "Flight was 6 hours...almost as much as my previous international flight, yet food and drink was only available for purchase. No entertainment options. Plus, wireless was $21! I needed to work and had to purchase, but that is really quite a rip off compared to other airlines."
Pros: "This flight was amazing! The crew was friendly and helped me when I had a panic attack from flying. It was very appreciated"
Pros: "Friendly and willing cabin crew, on time, clear skies and no turbulence, relatively quiet, good leg room"
Cons: "Food not tasty, meat tough and dry..no one around us ate it. Dessert was o.k."
Pros: "It was effortless... easy boarding and accommodating crew. There was a lot of turbulence so only one beverage service and no food. Would rather be safe than have crew injured."
Pros: "Entertainment system is good."
Cons: "Flight was over crowded with baggage. Some people were allowed to board with 3 cabin bags and others weren't allowed to bring any on board."
Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"
Cons: "I asked the woman at the gate prior to boarding if there were electrical outlets on the plane. She looked it up and said, its an Airbus, yes they have outlets at each seat. I didn't worry too much about charging my devices at my layover because I knew I could charge them on the plane. When I got on it was clear that there was no outlets, no video on the backs of seats, no devices being handed out for purchase. Nothing. I'm definitely used to more updated planes, but I would have been ok without the misinformation. I ended up on a 4 hr flight bored out of my gourd—which could have been avoided."
Cons: "Despite arriving more than an hour ahead of time, I had to wait in a long line to get to the ticket counter and by the time I got there the assistant refused to check my bag. I then had the choice of catching another flight standby, possibly not even arriving on the same day, or changing my ticket for an obscene amount of money. I hope to never deal with AA again."
Pros: "seat comfortable enough"
Cons: "unbelievably tightly spaced seats. Incredibly uncomfortable to have knees pushed into seat ahead - - so tight almost impossible to get feet under seat."
Cons: "The captain announced that the flight crew exceeded 9 work hour per day due to the takeoff delay so the passengers were forced to sit and wait in a stuffy stationary aircraft for 2 hours prior to takeoff until a different crew could arrive to service the flight."
Cons: "As it was the continuation of an international flight, I believe I travelers like me deserved to be treated with free food and not just drink and water."
Pros: "Chairs were very comfy and wider than some airlines."
Cons: "Crew not overly friendly and not very attentive, and there were lots of empty seats so there wasn't much excuse. Also, I had an issue with the plane. I think no screens on a cross-country flight is not good business. Not everyone is savvy with go-go inflight. And if there are no screens, could there at least be outlets? I was so tired after my Paris flight and wanted to chill with some go-go entertainment, but my battery was low and there were no outlets. I know not all flights can have these luxuries, but if the flight is over five hours, I think it should be better equipped."
"United is my favorite. They are so much better with service and staff and landings. I've been flying with them for over 40 years. The seats are the only thing that could be better by being a little bigger. Otherwise, fantastic flight."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Friendlier service."
Pros: "The seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was just too darn hot and the fans were barely working. All of us were melting."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and also the space of my seat"
Cons: "Wish they have a portable TV in my seat"
Pros: "Better staff"
Cons: "Still terrible"
Cons: "Seating was brutal. Need to do a better job about being upfront about what you book when you get basic economy. Brutal seating and gouged for baggage"
Pros: "united is united"
Cons: "If the power outlet works reliably, it would be much better. The toilet was really small."
Pros: "Can’t think of a darn thing."
Cons: "There were no power outlets or USB ports on the plane (at least in coach). Strange for a cross-country flight. Also, if you drop something or want your bag from under the seat in front of you, forget about picking it up unless you want to ask your seat mate if they mind your head in their lap. I am a small person, but not a contortionist. Limited entertainment."
Pros: "Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight"
Cons: "Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work."
Cons: "The flight staff was rude, the wrong gas was put in the plane causing a delay, I missed my connection because of this where they wrote it was delayed because "it was snowing in Savannah" which was a blatant lie, but made it so they did not have to help me in any way since their delay was "weather" related. They could not get my to my destination until noon the next day which forced me to buy a new flight on Alaska air. My flight on Alaska was absolutely fantastic and I regret ever buying any United flight and will not in the future."
Pros: "Staff was very good at their job/duties."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "Free entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was incredibly hot the whole way. Which the flight was 5 hours long. The crew was a little rude, not to me in particular but to others. They didn’t have a good attitude. Sat at the gate for an hour waiting for other planes to come in so that other people wouldn’t miss the flight. But an hour??? Really!! People were getting mad and hot and sweaty. Food wasn’t cooked all the way when it got to a passenger. It was still cold. It was the worst flight I’ve been on. I would rather ride in a jump seat on a C-130 with military!"
Cons: "Captain was 1 hour late, then wasn't prepared with a gate when we arrived in Seattle. I got home 3+ hours later than I expected, and I have a short vacation time."
Pros: "Very smooth fligh and very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "The seats were extremely crammed and there were no movies or shows without purchase"
Cons: "I was not able to sit with my husband and the man next to me drank a a bunch of red wine and the attendant brought him whiskey after that until he passed out with his baby over my lap."
Cons: "The flight attendant female, black with long hair was very short with passengers and just not very nice. Seat was not able to recline back at all and leg room was not adequate. Not a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly service by the flight crew."
Cons: "No in-flight movies, tv or other entertainment. Not even some channels. Everything required payment. Wasn't that way on our trip over on what appeared to be similar equipment."
Cons: "The Capt. Lying to Us and after 40 minutes sitting on the rap being held. The Captain came on and said the delay was Dorothea baggage boys loading the plane aft heavy and incorrectly loaded they had to totally remove every bag and reload the entire baggage and move most of the bags to a forward compartment . Many passengers wanted off but they crew refused Another reason not to fly United I am cancelling my return flight an returning on another airline! United is e worse airline in business today. Do not book on United Everett Johnson Bellevue, Washington"
Pros: "I liked how there were some (very few) staff that were friendly and helpful. They somewhat eased the nightmare a bit"
Cons: "There were so many delays that could've easily been avoided. To make matters worse there were two United attendants at the gate hastling every passenger preboarding. The two women were so rude and confrontational. Then I board the plane that I had to be rebooked on because of the delays I missed my connection .. and didn't even get the seat I chose. A woman sat in my seat and refused to move, leaving me with a middle seat next to a lady who was so mean. She kept making rude comments to me throughout my 5 hour flight, and proceeded to get intoxicated. I didn't get home till almost midnight..when I should've been home by 9."
Cons: "Plane change resulted in middle seat in far back instead of aisle originally."
Cons: "I was very I'll and could not complete this flight. Was told by airline to call Kayak for changing date of flight for $50 vs $200 they would charge. Ticket was less than $200. I called Kayak. They said sorry it will cost you $200 per airline policy. Either way, this is unacceptable to me. I will stick with Southwest who let's you change flights on all fares if you use it within one year. So since change fee was more than ticket I just ate the cost. Not happy with UNITED or KAYAK. Won't use either one again."
Cons: "Roundtrip flight to Seattle with a layover, first flight went without incident, so far so good. On the flight back (during a layover) literaly 5 minutes till boarding the plane, the pilot is ready to go, the people are standing in line, United decides it wont make enough $ on the flight and gives it to an Ontario flight. We are canceled and now have to wait 4 additional hours in the airport. Was told it was air traffic control that messed up, not United, which was not even possible and an obvious untruth. Was offered a complimentary bottle of water for the trouble. Classic united."
Pros: "At 6' tall I'm not exactly TALL, SLIGHTLY above average yet as hard as I pressed back into the seat I wasn't able to squeeze Even a milimeter of leg room. I spent 2+hrs in moderate pain with no options. The seat sold to me WASN'T big enough for a person talker than 5'10". I felt ripped off. At age 41 I've NEVER had a flight with less leg room. Ever, not on a commuter flight or anything. It was a very painful experience. I had to ice my knee caps afterwards."
Cons: "ZERO LEG ROOM AT ALL. PAINFUL to say the least."
Pros: "The morning cookie was good."
Cons: "It was dirty."
Pros: "No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent as usual."
Cons: "Would love a plug or port at the seat to keep my device charged."
Pros: "Seats at least in economy plus were acceptable with enough space between seats to allow you to move around without disturbing the entire plane. My row 11a-c did not have a window"
Pros: "Premium economy is a must for me from now on. I am 6'4" and the extra leg room makes all the difference in the world. My flight was at night so I had little interaction with the crew. Overall I had a very pleasant experience on united and would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Food options were limited to snack boxes. I had a layover in Denver. At the time of my arrival all of the food options in the Denver airport were closed. I would have appreciated some more substantial food offerings on the plane, as I had to go without dinner thatnight."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the gate! I believe her name was Jackie or jaciquiene at SF was the most inconsecrate women I have ever met! She was yelling at me to put my bag in the bag to see if it will fit. She was completely rude and acted like she hated her job! I will NEVER fly with UNITED again! I will be contacting United regarding this issue as well! The other lady at the gate called her led and after that she contacted her supervisor and they also didn't let me on the flight! This was the worst experience I have EVER had! I will NEVER FLY WITH UNITED AGAIN."
Pros: "I thought the newer model 737 with the ambient lighting and redesigned overhead compartments gives the plane a less claustrophobic feel. The pilots did a great job navigating through potential turbulence and the flight crew was attentive and on point. A better experience than the crew on the flight from Seattle to Houston four days before. It is my understanding that Continental crews remained intact upon the merge and my assumption was this was a Continental crew versus the United crew that was not as good."
Cons: "The boarding process with the arbitrary assignment of boarding group 5 giving us no chance to bring our one bag on the plane. There is no real enforcement of the carton policies of these airlines which makes it frustrating for those who follow the rule only to be punished and forced to check the bag and go through baggage claim."
Pros: "Our names are Steve and Jan Hovde if you have any other questions about our flight concerns. We can be reached by phone at 360-332-8414. We did not call FAA, but still very much a concern. We have flown United other times and many other airlines and many Boeing 737's...we noticed other passengers looking at each other because of the clunking and growling sounds."
Cons: "most important I vowed I would try and call FAA about safety concerns with the plane. Mechanical noises prior to take off , during flight(right fan whine) - could hear it when started engines in SF., Some loud clunking at take off bringing in landing wheels and again letting down for landing in Seattle. When plane came to stop at the gate, again some noises we have never heard before on 737's. Please check out that plane more closely. Part of our concern is that Pilot mentioned before take off that they had problems with scheduled 737 and they needed extra time to locate another 737 that could be used(Why our take off was rescheduled twice and different gate)......it seemed that one that had been mothballed may have been brought out to use......We did mention some of this tactfully to stewardess' standing near exit when we got off the plane(She seemed surprised and wondered what we were talking about. We were so thankful we made it. We just figured that flight crew would be tracking these odd noises and pass along to captain if he couldn't hear."
Pros: "There's really nothing good to say, because it never happened."
Cons: "Same problems I had with the Phoenix to San Francisco leg. The flight never happened. It was cancelled and I was stuck in Phoenix another night, missing my kids. No compensation was offered. When I asked, they said, "oh, we don't do that." Yet another reason to never fly United ever again. Alaska doesn't have to be asked for compensation, they just compensate you, period."
Cons: "The difference in entertainment options between different United flights is frustrating. Unlike some flights, which offer a bunch of free movies and shows you can watch on your phone or tablet, this flight offered a small selection of movies I could pay $8 for access to, which started at pre-determined times so you might pay for them and not even be able to catch the movie from the beginning. My original flight offered an outlet to charge my phone and a fairly large selection of free movies, so I watched 3 movies and the time went by quickly. My return flight did have an outlet, but I didn't want to pay for a bad selection of movies that I couldn't pause or start from the beginning, so it felt like a much longer flight."
Pros: "Mr Anthony Brown, gate crew for United in Chicago remembered that I had asked for an aisle seat and, when one became available, he made sure I got it. I was so grateful for his consideration and professionalism."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Few bathrooms. More cramped."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The United app told us we missed our connection so we had to go stand by on this flight. We later discovered that the original flight was delayed an hour and we could have easily made it. We were told that this fight was overbooked. We almost waited on an even later flight. Luckily we stayed at the gate and found that this flight was in fact only half full. United IT sucks. The entertainment system is horrible. With one exception the FAs were bitter and angry."
Pros: "Crew was gracious, helpful, and courteous during a terrible and disruptive ordeal for passengers"
Cons: "Being stuck for nearly an hour sweating on a plane with no AC while mechanics were trouble shooting, only to find out that we had to exit the plane, and that it could not fly. Passengers had no idea what to do - whether another plane would be sent for us, whether United would reimburse our ticket if we arranged another flight on our own, etc. We were left to fend for ourselves. I had a wedding to get to with many pre-wedding events, starting this evening. So, I looked for another flight, found one, booked it, and went to United customer service to request reimbursement for my ticket. I was told that United had just learned that another plane was coming for us and would arrive in 30 minutes, at 8:10. (My original flight had been at 6:35). The other flight I had booked was at 10:30 pm. So, United customer service changed canceled my new booking and put me back to my original flight, now arriving at 8:10 and boarding at 8:50. The plane did arrive, but we did not board until 10:50 pm. My flight left at 11:02 pm. Bottom line is that my flight was delayed 4.5 hours. I missed an important event that I was supposed to host. I missed my only opportunity to see a dear friend (and guest of honor) - this is someone I have not seen in person for ten years and was the guest of honor at tonight's celebration that I was supposed to host and missed. Furthermire, I could not carry on a bag that I have carried on for years, and that would have easiky fit. Having to check my bag left me without my phone charger. Of course, the fact that we were 4.5 hours delayed meant that I ran out of power shortly into our long flight from Washington. to Seattle. And the food was awful - stale nuts, . ;, b:;"
Pros: "That i finally arrived at my destination"
Cons: "The flight was immorally delayed by 1.5hrs. then by another half an hour. Then there were issues with boarding, which delayed us more. Then the plane was put in a holding pattern (just circling in the area) because there was too much traffic at Seattle. I understand there are many factors that affect flights, but the entire experience today left me feeling really down and disappointed, and unfortunately, annoyed."
Pros: "Polite staff"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. Overhead bins were full, but flight attendants were not available to help people struggling to find a place for their baggage. They should've offered to gate check baggage"
Pros: "Aircraft, flight (except for late arrival at gate) and service"
Cons: "Pilot announced we would arrive early in Seattle. When we go to Seattle we waited 30 minutes for a gate and actually arrived late. When we got to baggage claim we had no claim area posted for our flight; another 15 minutes waiting to find out where our luggage would be"
Pros: "We got lucky and there were two empty seats across the aisle, which happened to have extra leg room, and the one gentleman sitting there, graciously offered to move to the window seat so my husband could sit in the aisle seat. My husband was quite happy that he was able to move just across the aisle from me and have the extra leg room."
Cons: "My husband's original seat had a broken jack for headphones and the only thing they could offer was to switch seats with someone that wasn't going to use theirs. Luckily, the man sitting across the aisle heard what was going on and offered his seat to my husband and the gentleman just moved to the window seat. Paying an extra $118 for basically nothing; it's not very clear before you buy it, what exactly your paying the extra money for. On our return flight, we flew American, and the same thing would have only cost us an extra $42. We had to wait in a ridiculously long security line in Chicago and by the time we got to our terminal, 90% of the passengers were already on the flight or in line to enter the plane and that's what we found out we had paid the extra $118 for."
Pros: "Lining up in groups"
Pros: "Though a little expensive the snack boxes had a good selection of items."
Cons: "There were no complementary movies or tv shows or even music."
Pros: "Crew was a little more enthusiastic. There was wifi on the flight. I fell asleep for half of the ride, so we had a smooth ride for the most part."
Cons: "Asian style snacks need a little help. I was assigned to a middle seat again and my back started aching from the seats. Just little things though."
Cons: "I was seated next to a morbidly obese man that smelled of feces so bad people many seats away had to cover their noses, overflowed his seat, taking up half of mine, and was watching disgusting pornography on his phone for half the flight, not that I was looking, but it was a bit hard to not notice, he wasn't trying to hide it. The power outlet under my seat did not work, so my phone died, and my armrest(left) was missing it's headphone jack so I couldn't use the in-flight entertainment, not that it would have mattered anyway, the fat man beside me was so huge, his fat covered my armrest so I had no access to the remote. The guy on my right, in the window seat, while not fat, wasn't small either and hogged two armrests, leaving me with none. I had to hold my seatback with my left hand the entire flight because there was nowhere to put my left arm without either holding it straight out in front of me, or laying them on the fat mans stomach which was folded over the armrest to my left. At one point I called a flight attendant and asked if they had any kind of a pillow or something to help my situation because the position I was forced to sit in was horribly uncomfortable and did not support my back, she looked at me confused, said they have nothing like that, and immediately vanished without any suggestion of a seat change or anything, just confused stare and then bolted away. All in all a pretty traumatizing experience, worst flight of my life."
Pros: "I was on United Flight # 4863 from AEX to IAH, and Fran Conway was our stewardess. Her pre-flight and pre-landing routines were entertaining, humorous, and professional, all at the same time. I complimented her on them, and she said that she had written them herself! I have flown with United, quite a bit, recently, including several international flights. This little flight from AEX to IAH was by far the best, as far as the crew is concerned. Fran Conway deserves a raise and a huge promotion. She should be on larger, international flights. She's ready for the big leagues!"
Cons: "I just want to point out that I rated the food and entertainment as "Good" only because they were not offered on the flight. I do not expect them to be offered on such a short flight, but there was not an option to select "NA" for my rating."
