Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was super amazing and friendly! Very good service also!"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment.."
Pros: "The flight crew could have been more attentive. Jackets and coats were not collected during preboarding until last minute, by then I had already put mine away."
Cons: "No food was offered, short flight though, that’s okay, but the crew definitely could have been more attentive to the first class passengers."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "It was all great"
Cons: "Brighter, kinder and nicer faces."
Pros: "Don’t wait to much"
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight not cancelled"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Cons: "I’m tired of Delta gate agents “requiring” those in Main cabin 3 gate checking bags!! Both legs of the trip it came to a point they said it’s mandatory to gate check all remaining bags. We get on board and there’s plenty of overhead space. Even a flight attendant mentioned how empty the bins were!"
Pros: "The plane was 2 hours late and I could not get home. Missed the connection to Greenville at 11:38. They told me there were no hotels in Atlanta and I would have to stay in the airport and then take the 8:55 am fight to Greenville. That took an hour in line and there was no help."
Cons: "The pilot was awesome. He flew as fast as he could to help anyone make their connection but it didn’t help. But I appreciate him trying. Just frustrated that being military I didn’t get to board earlier or that they didn’t help me find a way home"
Pros: "For a puddle jumper jet it was amazingly comfortable. Even had enough room to put both feet and a carry on bag under the seat. And the seats were more comfortable relative to the competition (eg. United and US Air)."
Cons: "Seats can always be more roomy but that is a problem with all puddle jumper jets."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Everything it’s perfect"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."

Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "Getting offered a stipend to change flights - getting my preferred rental car"
Cons: "A direct flight"
Cons: "Worst transatlantic flight in 40 years. Filthy old seats and mine had a wet ironed stain. The seat in front of me was broken and reclined into my lap. That made the screen for entertainment unusable. The reading lights didn’t work. The toilets were a mess and never serviced."
Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"
Pros: "The plane and flight was fine, as was the crew on board. The crew within the Salt Lake airport could have been better. Not sure if it was the gentlemans first time but overall he and the woman working the boarding were very slow and could have been more efficient. We boarded late (may be out of their control) but when we started boarding there was too much wasted time between calling up the military/people with longer boarding needs/wheelchairs etc. They waited until they were completely boarded and settled prior to calling the next group then spent time fiddling with the sign that splits the boarding lanes etc. Just appeared that there was no sense of efficiency. Polite people though."
Pros: "Delta flights are usually on time and the staff is always polite and helpful"
Cons: "Both my departure and arrival flight were delayed and I was not please with delay."
Pros: "Comfort and snack was good."
Cons: "All ok."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "entertainment and leg room on regular seats"
Cons: "delay, boarding process"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Pros: "The food and enterntaibment are always nice. The captain was super friendly and opportune with his communications. Seating was as fast as possible and boarding was swift."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Pros: "Very friendly crew - clear communication & updates regarding delays."
Cons: "No tv, which is okay, but if you offer wifi to watch movies/shows on your phone, really need outlets to charge the phone! Or at least a few radio station to plug headphones into."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "The gate agent helped half a dozen people (not including those described below) understand they were boarding with the wrong group."
Cons: "Fully one-quarter of the passengers boarded as disability or premium. This included a party of eight that boarded with one person in a wheelchair because "We're all together.""
Cons: "We had to leave the airport to get another boarding pass. Wish we could have gotten it at the start of our trip, because the people at the counters in Mexico city sent us to like 3 different counters. 2 aeromar counters and one delta. Things were not clear about this flight by aeromar operated by delta..."
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."

Cons: "Rough Landing"
Pros: "Vuelo acorde con el horario establecido"
Cons: "Regular atención del personal en el aeropuerto"
Pros: "I really enjoyed this subsidiary of Delta Airlines and was happy that the level of service from the flight attendants was top notch. None were snarky nor annoyed to attend to the passengers. All the flight attendants were very nice and gave me good vibes about their flight crew.I will be flying AeroMexico again."

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

Cons: "Every time I would fly out in Aeromexico we never payed for luggage I don’t know why they changed their policy to charge for every bag."
Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."
Pros: "Again, the seating is more than adequate. I discovered a person who couldn't read her ticket stub correctly had taken my seat, but instead of insisting that she move, I asked if I could have an emergency exit row seat and was told "Yes," I could. I had to whole row to myself. Those seats, while as comfortable as the rest, made the screen mounted on the back of the seat ahead of me a little hard to see because of the greater than usual distance between the seats. But there certainly was a lot of legroom!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was an aspect not totally in Aeromexico's control - the disembarkation system and the ugly process of Mexican immigration. The plane was left parked on the tarmac somewhere in nowhere'sville, making a trip to the terminal by bus necessary. The bus waited and waited and waited for a wheelchair to arrive from the main terminal to allow two elderly passengers to be removed from the plane. All in all that process took more than a half-hour (making the two-hour connection time more anxiety producing). Then the bus sat outside the terminal for another 10 minutes with no explanation being provided to the passengers worried about making their connection. To top it off, once the bus doors opened the passengers were ushered into a large hall filled with hundreds of passengers all having to get through Mexican immigration - during lunch hour or something, for there were only six officials actually asking questions and several empty inquiry windows that could have been operational. I finally got to an immigration clerk just 15 minutes before my connecting flight was to take off - breezed through the interview and got the passport stamped, and then had to run to dump the luggage onto another conveyor belt leading I hoped to the connecting flight. An Aeromexico staff person asked me "Seattle?" and when I answered "YES!" was ushered to a waiting electric golf cart that whisked me close to the ramp to Gate 57. Without that additional help I'd never had made the flight. Mexico City is NOT a place to try to do a plane connection in less than 3 hours!"
Pros: "Puntuality and service"
Cons: "Terrible service. Food was terrible. Only a croissant for breakfast"
Pros: "In flight Mexico-Lax the entertaiment was really great. They should offer more than one drink in all trip. It was my first time traveling aeromexico."
Cons: "By unnafortunadly circunstances my family and i lost the first flight from guatemala to mexico city, and the atention service agent didn´t care about our situation so he gives us just one option and it was pay for next fly to mexico, we told him that it wasn´t correct because we had been tried so hard to get the fligth, the fact was that where no more option and we paid for the next fligth. The people working for aeromexico should be more prepared to attend the costumer, i think they would be help us instead of force us to pay as the last chance that we had. Sorry about my bad english, i hope this works for you."
Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"
Pros: "I'm 6'3" and they put me in a row with more legroom without charge. Very friendly and courteous crew."
Cons: "no food on this 4 hr flight but i did fly economy. This isnt only flight or airline where in flight internet doesnt work."
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 good to write"
Cons: "Total discrimination"
Pros: "The crew members were very nice and friendly. The staff at check in were also nice and things were run very smoothly."
Cons: "The cabin AC did not turn on until every last passenger was seated and the door was closed.. It was really hot inside. I don't know what can be done about it, but that was frustrating. Also, I'm gulten intolerant and it would be nice if you served something other than sandwiches. Not a big deal, but just a suggestion."
Pros: "It was a very pleasant n short flight! The crew was very helpful and polite."
Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"
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: "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: "The flight departed more than 90 minutes late. Not impressive. No one ever explained the delay, so poor communication. The food was considerably better than the previous flight. Older plane so no movie selection. We appreciated the fact they did not lose our luggage on this journey."
Cons: "Overall, based on our experience to and from our destination, we will avoid Aeromexico in the future. The people are nice but it is a poorly managed airline. Too many headaches and surprises to justify any discount. We have flown many times internationally and therefore understand things are not always smooth. But there are too many problems with Aeromexico."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The ride was smooth. The landing was smooth as well."
Cons: "The seats are too close together that I could not sit comfortably the second I sat down. Also we were told to social distance but we were all elbow to elbow so it didn’t really make any sense."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and we arrived early! It was the perfect flight!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Movie selection, clean plane"
Cons: "Rude passengers that do not respect personal space even after notifying a flight attendant."
Cons: "board families with infants and children first"
Pros: "It was quick."

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "We had a difficult time getting in the air in the air. We left 1.5 hours late! Not AA fault!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was very late"
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."
Pros: "The American airline is a wonderful experience especially during a stressful time to travel. Everyone was helpful. Especially the pilots. They help me order my Uber."

Cons: "Lack of service."
Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"

Pros: "Great crew. So friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "All went well and without incident. Friendly crew. Easy On, easy off."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "The crew could not have been better. I was really pleased with the movie selection. However, the food is really terrible. I got a dish that was chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans, which would have been acceptable had it not been covered in bbq sauce."
Pros: "Food was really good, crew members fantastic. Boarding was a little messy, a mix between anxious passengers and weak organization."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work and there was no way to solve it. It should've been checked before. It was a 9-hours flight with almost nothing to do."
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Cons: "short flight herded like cattle. not much about it"
Pros: "Purchased extra legroom -- on time boarding"
Pros: "Staff was really friendly Boarding was easy Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not much space within the seats Food was mediocre Entertainment was okay"
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "Iberia does not have a check in counter at lax. All flights are operated by American, but ticket issued by Iberia. American could not locate my ticket and as a result I missed my flight. Iberia's 1800 number would not cooperate to release or rebook my ticket until a full day and 3 trips to the airport later when I made a manager speak to an American airline rep to explain and resolve what should be done with my unused ticket. Unbelievably inefficient and rude."
Pros: "It was a good flight back to DC."
Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Crew pleasant. Food nice."
Pros: "Another great flight. On our plane the entertainment was free and I was able to watch a lot of movies. We even landed early"
Cons: "I know it was a very long flight and my butt and legs were hiring by the time we landed. Also I'm lactose intolerant. And I wasn't able to eat any of the food. But it did look good. But overall a very good flight."
Pros: "Inflight movies"

Pros: "The food and the crew"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

My flight landed late due to Airline delays no one would help me get across the entire airport the far terminal that I had to go to it was absolutely ridiculous because of this I'm still in Chicago I'm not even reached my destination"
Pros: "It was a satisfying experience with United Airline from ABE shuttle bus ride (I said Shuttle) to EWR. It sure saved me the 2 hours driving during rush hour, and wears and tearS on my personal car, if you have 2 hours extra time during the day. Otherwise (If you want to save time), drive yourself to EWR and park."
Cons: "It does take up 2 more hours"
Cons: "Delayed over 6 hours. United should have made replacement plane available sooner."
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "I got a free gin and tonic because their credit card swipe machine was broken."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because of whatever national blackout happened. All Us flights were grounded. Being that I happened to be in Orlando, and of course there was weather, they call the delay a weather delay. Even though there was plenty of time between bands of this storm we could have taken off. No one updated passengers until we demanded updates, and customer service reps were rude as ever. I will never fly united again. Frankly I am surprised they are still in business."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Cons: "and smiling faces. I actually have no complaints. All went"
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "First class was nice but I paid for 1st class for the whole flight and only got it on the first leg. They should have told me that when they took my money."
Cons: "2nd leg was terrible it was over an hour and a half late because they had to replace a toilet seat! I paid for an upgrade for first class and they over booked it so I didn't get it and haven't received my money back. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."
