When the passenger in front of me tilted his seat back I couldn’t even cross my legs! I like Qantas but I have learned to abhor American Airlines (which operated this flight), next time I will probably use Air New Zealand purely because of the seat situation."

Pros: "Left an hour late, but it was the airport's fault, not the airline's. Arrived very close to the original arrival time."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Great left ok time..."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour because no gate was available! I missed my connection by 5 min. When I asked if they could do something (hold the plane etc) since I had a connection they said, “Sir everyone has a connecting flight!” Like I was asking them to move mountains. Point is, United doesn’t care about their costumers. I see them going out of business soon. They have terrible costumer service. I missed the holidays with my family and had to buy a new plane ticket on a different airline because they could not reschedule me on time!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight."

Cons: "My flight was changed and I missed a very important meeting that I had to be at."
Cons: "My first flight leg was delayed 2 hrs 15 mins because of "air traffic control conditions". I was told that I would make my connection, so I took the delayed first leg, and when I arrived in Denver for my 2nd leg. Was informed that my connection had already left the gate & I had to spend an awful night at the airport when I could've just stayed in Durango on a nice soft bed at my friends house. Wish I would've had an honest assessment of my flight plans because my choice would've been different."

Pros: "Aircraft was in great shape. Handling at both airports was efficient and professional. No delays in either direction. Great flight."

Cons: "getting there late"
Cons: "Due to my initial delayed flight I got to O'Hare during a drastically busy time. Due to the amount of people, noise, and dishevelment my PTSD became aggravated and I found myself having an attack. I chose the initial early flight to ensure this would not happen. I am aware of what causes my PTSD to become aggravated and I take that into consideration when I make all plans."
Pros: "Roomy for a small plane"
Cons: "Hard to get online, much smoother on connecting flight. Hated landing in SFO."
Pros: "Great experience, love the crew, super nice, will fly again."
Cons: "We were delayed which happens. That alone isn't a big deal. However, we sat on a runway for over 40 minutes without an update. Then we were told it will be 15 minutes and we returned to a terminal. Zero additional updates for about 50 minutes later. Crew or captain could at least kept us updated so we knew. Very poor service. Crew was friendly and good during the flight"
