Flight attendants have been very rude!
The gate crew at Asheville was very friendly and on top of letting passengers know why things were being delayed. The air crew was friendly. The delay experienced through American Airlines (American Eagle) was inconvenient and made for a long day without any sleep. The flight was smooth. However, the seats were obviously in need of new cushions. They were hard and uncomfortable. The aircraft was clean, though.
Cons: "The plane was not cleaned prior to us getting on."
Cons: "That flight for 2.5 hrs is way to tight. An hour, hour and a half... OK. But 2.5 hrs on a packed flight was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Signs etc were clear. Emailed for delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with little explanation to why."
Pros: "Everything was seamless."
Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Cons: "Didn't get snack. WiFi entertainment wasn't working."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Plan was in poor condition and needs updated and cleaned"
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick and on time. Transfer in Phoenix was no problem. Luggage arrived OK."
Cons: "Seating is too small and too close to next rows. Unhappy with having to pay for seat assignments and checked bag while watching gate agents refuse to enforce overhead bag size limits."
Pros: "Direct flight and good personal service provided by crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overbooked causing further delay at departure gate. Plane is small and cramped."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "No changes"
Cons: "Be on time. Also we sat in first class and it would be nice if the center counsel was smaller giving the passengers more seat room."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "allow us to choose seats without financial restriction"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No snacks because of short trip, so can’t rate properly."
Cons: "I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well."
Cons: "the tremendous pressure from the staff, at the American Airlines. Never before experience such a low and virtually feel like an inmate, Just because the person in doing so, was profiling and that is NO GOOD , also the airport is filthy and dirty , Nobody Cares...I will not come again as a tourist to that country.. American Airlines should train the staff to be more courteous and not to ask that many questions ..it feels like you where in Siberia.."
Cons: "Because of airline delay and increased immigration wait time, we missed our flight. No compensation but we were connected to another flight to Sac. 1-1/2 hours later, which worked out okay, except we got home very late at night."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Very uncomfortable for 17 hours."
Pros: "Crew overall was friendly. Flight took off a little early and arrived nearly an hour early."
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be rebooted for the entire plane, so no entertainment for the first hour or so. Even once working, the tactile screen did not work well and was frustrating to use. Food was OK, not great. Pasta was overcooked and dry. Fake cheddar cheese was not good."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Some crew were not very welcoming (smile)."
Pros: "The check in woman was rode and could barely soak english"
Cons: "When I purchased my tickets, American decided it would be reasonable to separate my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and myself which I was notified of only when I asked the customer service agent over the phone prior to our flight. She explained that she was unable to do anything about it. I then called American during my trip and spoke with another agent who said it was out of her hands as well and to take it up with an agent at the desk at the airport. When I checked in online, I was able to change our seats myself which was nothing that either agent even suggested. The lack of ability of these agents on the phone to help two parents traveling internationally with a toddler was unbelievable. American has terrible customer service."
Pros: "All service once on board was lovely"
Cons: "Surprised by a snarky employee at gate check for my connecting flight home today. I fly with AA nearly every week for work. They grabbed my bag from me and insisted it be checked. I said I didn’t want to pay for checking and that it contained fragile items. It was a little over-stuffed for the scale. When I went to open it and remove some bulky items to put in my purse, they snatched my suitcase away and refused to let me touch my bag. I find this to be completely unacceptable. They had the gall to suggest I go to an airport store, buy a “suitable suitcase,” and take a later flight home. They made a scene and called a supervisor who kindly and promptly let me in my suitcase. The employee then spoke negatively about me loudly to nearby colleagues and refused to make eye contact. After the supervisor let me in my bag, I got on the plane with my suitcase. At one point, this employee made me feel like I was going to be kicked off of my flight; this was so unnecessary and extremely unprofessional. AA - your employees are better than this."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Pros: "on time and it was comfortable"
Pros: "Lost bag, came on later flight Totally disorganized TSA on Dallas very rude"
Cons: "this flight was delayed going both directions."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional (as usual), everything ran smoothly and on time."
Cons: "It doesn't make sense to board from the front of the plane backward. I know this is not an AA thing, but a way to make customers paying more feel more special by having the privilege of sitting on the plane longer...but it's really silly."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to accident on the road. AA was more than helpful in trying to reroute me BUT British Air did not want to cooperate so my trip is now cancelled. This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very accommodating. One of the flight attendants encouraged me to take advantage of a seat that had more space so that I was more comfortable. Also when I casually talked about how I didn't get to eat before the flight she gave me two of the cinnamon crackers that are offered during the flight. This was very thoughtful and considerate of her. It was the little things and the attendants attention to detail that provided me an excellent experience."
Pros: "The AA staff was very friendly. The flight was late due to weather however it did not affect our connection. I believe I paid more more my seat class which proved a power outlet."
Cons: "I really couldn't rate the food or entertainment because there wasn't any."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Pros: "The crew kept us informed as to why we didn''t leave the gate on time; they served beverages and snacks in an efficient manner. Once we got to Dallas we were early, he made up time in the air and the captain informed us that the gate was not ready to receive the plane. We waited about 15 minutes and then we got to the gate."
Pros: "There were several empty seats on the flight, and Evelyne was very helpful in reseating me to a seat where I had enough room to use the in-flight wifi and work a full, productive day (without a seat in front of me obstructing the use of my laptop). She's the epitome of customer service."
Pros: "Quick and easy ride to Florida. Only 2 hour flight, smooth ride. Crew did their job and did it well."
Cons: "No entertainment options, I'm assuming because of short flight. No tvs."
Pros: "Like I said before the crews were on time. The seats were comfortable and big enough. Everyone on the crew were very nice and made sure we were informed of procedures."
Cons: "There is nothing I can say negative."
Pros: "The actual attendants on board were perfunctory but had zero urgency or understanding that we had been delayed or notified we'd be so delayed. Appeared there was zero communcation between the gate staff and actual crew. So much was so 'typical Miami' which is just a sad way any travel experience should be described. I expect more from the largest global airline especially when I just listened to several interviews from the CEO who appeared to pride himself to be accurate in being the best to serve his patrons."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"
Cons: "Baggage charge. I always try and fly with southwest if possible no baggage fee and they have an overall better vibe for the flyers"
Pros: "I like it! Thank you, kayak"
Pros: "On my return I had my own seat! Not nearly as cramped. Had soda and pretzels. The air magazine was latest issue! The attended was nice."
Cons: "The seats needed to be shampood."
Cons: "After paying for a seat upgrade when I booked the ticket, I was forced to pay a second upgrade fee just to sit only 12 rows further back than the seat I paid for. The excuse given by the airline was that they had changed planes and the new plane didn't have a seat 13F. Instead, the equivalent was row 40. I was told that I could pay more and more up to row 25, but that all the lower rows were full. When I asked the service rep to refund the difference, I was told I had to fill out a form online. I was told there are no humans with whom a customer can speak that can process a refund."
My first plane had technical issues and never took off but after hours, the original flight just kept getting delayed and delayed without letting the customers have the updated information or rebooking them. I only made the Washington flight thanks to one lady TSA agent at the Asheville airport who personally retrieved my luggage from the grounded flight and brought them to the Washington flight. The flight itself was fine.
Pros: "Nice plane , comfortable"
Cons: "Counter at Asheville, point of origin for the flight, was unattended at recommended arrival time. Attendant, when he finally appeared, seemed, to this traveler at least, unengaged, abrupt, even rude, certainly not as welcoming and helpful ad other UA counter attendants at busier airports and at more demanding times. The word lazy comes to mind. The same individual handled the gate. His demeanor there was similar. If it is UA policy to leave counters unattended, an explanation should be posted; if present policy requires one individual to handle counter and gate duties, perhaps more help is needed. This experience, all the more frustrating when a passenger ruses early so as to comply with recommended arrival and boarding times, combined with the fact that the incoming flight significantly delayed AVL to Washington depart setting the tone for a mostly mediocre experience crowned by a painful trek from terminal A to terminal C to catch the connection to PVD. Not a best effort by UA. Outstanding flight and cabin crews saved the day."
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful with large package"
Cons: "i ordered a vegetarian meal and didn't get one."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "i was able to change my seat away from a breastfeeding mom and 2 screaming children"
Cons: "i paid 21.00 for internet which sucked.,buffeted the whole time..couldn’t watch netflix..will be petitioning to get my money back!.."
Pros: "Service at business was good. Comfortable chairs and quiet cabin space."
Cons: "The gate experience due to long time between flights getting worst due to a departure delay."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and were able to efficiently accommodate me and my kids next to each other on a flight that was completely full... while we were almost late. An amazing experience. Unfortunately stands out of all others with United."
Cons: "The quality of coffee"
Pros: "Kayak provided excellent info during the trip about flights timings ! Marvelous !!!!"
Cons: "Baggage took forever. . Caused a lot of confusion if at right claim carousel. Over 30min & counting...."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent and went over and above to help us"
Cons: "We were told due to the delay that CSR ‘s would help us with making our flights. Upon arrival no csr. Plane was still at terminal. Had to make 2 calls to a supervisor before csr’s Would do their job and get us boarded. Finally they came to their senses."
Pros: "I ate something."
Cons: "The food on international flights is really disgusting. I usually fly with Air france which has a wonderful food menu, and compared to that, United is really bad."
Cons: "Flight delayed appropriately due to weather but staff at United gave out misinformation and apparently not able to keep apace with information some of us passengers finally accessed online from United. The Asheville airport is small and the only restaurant closed - so for 4 hours we were left with no certainty, no food, and incorrect answers. Perhaps it is because airport is small, or the particular staff people were unable to focus. Flight itself was great."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid entertainment"
Pros: "Flight crew did everything to make sure you were comfortable.on both legs of my flight, I think United airlines is doing a decent job. I had no issues or delays"
Cons: "The seats are just to close together"

Cons: "It would have been great to have a USB port at the seat as in other international airlines."
Pros: "Delayed to Albany 2 hrs, no compensation, not even a beer!"
Pros: "The seats were soft. The convenience of flying out of Asheville was great."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes waiting. When the captain spoke, no one on the plane could understand a word he said due to the poor speakers, his accent?, and he spoke too fast. I nearly missed my connection in Chicago."
Pros: "I liked kayak, recommended by a friend and my new booking application. Thank you."
Cons: "I didn't arrange for travel or fly this flight. My email was entered by someone else by mistake."
Pros: "Boarding procedure and crew were excellent!"
Pros: "The customers service excellent"
Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "In order to upgrade to economy plus or first class, it would have cost more than my round trip flight. Flight left late and arrived late."
Cons: "My experience on this flight was not good. The crew was not really quite friendly in my opinion. Then my luggage did not arrive with me in the same flight. When it eventually showed up the next day it was damaged. The Agent at the counter was very unfriendly and unhelpful- he essentially said "if you read the fine print on your ticket purchase, you'll see that external damages are not covered by any airlines ". Sad!"
Pros: "On time departures and early arrivals"
Pros: "Cost my son and I one whole day getting back home. Canceled flight first scheduled day, canceled flight next day, 4 hr layover etc. etc. etc. Over 20 hrs to get from Shreveport to Bakersfield CA. Darn glad I left my car at the airport as we got there at 2:30 in the morning. F. B."
Pros: "This regional airplane was extremely comfortable! The flight was comfortable and the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "I wasn't too excited that the in-flight entertainment quit working about five hours in, but the crew did their best to remedy the situation."
Pros: "I missed my flight with Alligent due to an overturned tractor trailer and they couldn't do anything to help me (I'll never fly with them again) and I had to book a last minute flight with United, very easy just pricy due to last minute. Thanks!"
Pros: "She was very friendly and on task."
Cons: "Nothing. She was great."
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
Pros: "Great movie selection and quantities of meals/snacks."
Cons: "The plane was so cold that my feet literally went numb. I had to run through O'Hare to get to my next flight."
Cons: "Late, waited for a plane while numerous flights to Ontario and Sacramento came and went. Unacceptable."
Pros: "the afternoon coffee, not offered by others"
Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "The United app was sending me false alerts that caused me to miss my flight. The crew seemed to not care at all."
Pros: "One of the crew members was friendly."
Cons: "Literally everything else. Customer service was worse than Comcast's. Luggage was lost and has yet to be found even though I was promised multiple times that it would be taken care of. Will never fly United again."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "I experienced absolutely no problems before/during after my flight. Everything went smoothly. I wish every flight ran as smoothly as the two flights I took that day."
Pros: "The overall comfort and entertainment availabity."
Cons: "Apparently my designer shades drop out of my bag and inability to retrieve them. They were not turned into lost and found which means they were kept by their finder."
Cons: "United airlines plane from SLC to SFO departed 45 minutes late due to maintenance issue. Then the connecting flight from SFO to Bakersfield left 10 minutes early, thus resulting in a small group missing the connection. Spent Father's Day in the airport for 10+ hours to get on the last flight out of SFO to Bakersfield. Customer service was unhelpful and rude until they found out that the issue was at the fault of united Airlines and not external circumstances."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding on and off the plane was very easy"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortably. We had a nearly 6 hour flight with no tvs which wasn't great either."
