Food was great, flight attendants were very attentive.

Another smooth flight. Efficient boarding, early departure and early arrival in Baton Rouge.

Delayed, Tiny aircraft. Trainee staff. Gate checked all bags bigger than handbag and took 20+ min to unload said bags with no regard for status or cabin. Worst delta flight I have ever been on. And I’m platinum medallion after years of loyalty.

On time, friendly attentive staff, even a personal Christmas card from crew. And our luggage arrived! Only bummer was 30 minute plus delay for luggage to be unloaded

Choices for food.

The flight probably was alright, it's just that was unable to cancel /change my plans on the app, nothing easy about it. 1st time app user- negative experience

Connecting flights with first class seats is not as enjoyable since the flight was short. Will look to take more straight flights so i can enjoy first class more!

Pros: "Everything went very smoothly."
Cons: "I wasn't able to connect my ipad to the free wifi for any of my four flights."
Cons: "Poor communication on delays. No wifi. No service. Couldn’t use lavatory."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was awesome. I was able to watch NFL games the entire flight which made the flight go by super quick. Our flight was also ahead of schedule which was great as well."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Pros: "Confort was minor but ok"
Cons: "The flight was not on time. The staff broke my carry-on zip for expansion and refuse to admit it was a suitcase damage which need to be repair. They said put a belt around it to use it !!!! It is a 1 year new piece of luggage from Delsey which is a very good quality brand and expensive!!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and they did give free snacks! Nice change!"
Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"
Pros: "Nice short flight, crew was nice."
Cons: "Excellent"
Cons: "Last row doesn’t recline"
Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"
Pros: "Crew was great. Always attentive to needs of the passengers."
Cons: "Can't really think of anything unless you can shorten the flight!?!"
Cons: "I was never notified that the flight from Asheville to Atlanta was delayed...probably cancelled...... my connection to Munich would have been missed..... not reliable and not customer friendly to never notify the passenger!"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "they let someone get off the plane and it delayed the flight an hour and a half which caused me to miss my connecting flight. I now have to sit for a 5 hour layover"
Pros: "Quick and easy."
Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."
Pros: "AVL-ATL quick flight, small but comfMgr and you could actually roll your suitcase down the middle aisle. No entertainment, food or drink service."
Pros: "seat was fine."
Cons: "A/C was blowing right on our heads. Asked to have the A/C turned down. They said sure. The nothing. Asked again? Nothing. 3rd time, my neighbor and the people in the seat ahead told them that we were ll cold. Nothing! I was sneezing by the time we landed."

Pros: "Friendly staffs and on time flights"
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."
Cons: "I was not able to use this flight from Dallas because of the Hurricane Irma's impending closure of Sarasota. So I had to purchase a one way, First Class ticket from Dallas to Tampa so that I could get home before the hurricane hit. However, the flight from Dallas to Tampa via Atlanta was excellent in all the above. Now, I have to figure out how to get credit for the unused portion of the DFW-ATL-SRQ! Any suggestions? FR. JOE CONNOLLY"
Pros: "I would like more detail about traveling companions displayed."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"
Pros: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"
Pros: "on time meet all my expectations"
Cons: "I believe it is time for WI-FI to be complimentary in flights. It is far too expensive and feels like price gaugiMh."
Pros: "Excellent infotainment system"
Cons: "45 min queue to take-off"
Cons: "Delta doesn't manage their flight schedules and personnel with backup or standby crew in order to assist whenever there are delays across domestic flights. The plane was late to arrive at the gate and we were also told that while the pilot was ready to take off, we couldn't leave because we were waiting for a flight attendant to land from Pittsburgh (we were in La Guardia airport in NYC). delta would rather I convenience the flyer instead of hiring more personnel or figuring out standby or backup plans for delayed flights."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"
Pros: "Loved everything, the meal was good, spacious seats and friendly staff."
Pros: "It's hard for me to write this review as the first 4.5 hour leg was incredible. Staff was very friendly and did a great job. Otherwise, the equipment was old and dated. Good thing it's only an hour-ish flight."
Cons: "Old plane, hard seats designed for humans less than 3 years old."
Pros: "The plane was surprisingly comfortable. The seats had USB ports. The touch screens were clear and responsive. Most importantly, the service of the flight attendants was excellent. I was quite happy."

It was exactly as I expected, on time, smooth flight, courteous staff.

Love flying American.. gate agents and crew are awesome

Our last few flights (on a variety of airlines including AA) had honestly been disappointing. The negative experiences making me wonder if I should stop flying altogether and start to vacationing closer to home and just drive everywhere. Happily my flights from San Antonio to Miami and back have given me hope that flying is finally getting better, almost enjoyable. The AA luggage and flight check in went smoothly. AA flights were on time, gate changes were updated quickly to the app and text messages sent. I was very pleased with the American Airlines experience this trip.

Plane was new and fresh, attendants were polite. Much improved over my last experiences

Dealing with customer service was a terrible experience. Our flight was changed by the computer system to a different flight a full day later, and we were given no option to change it. It took us a full 6 hours of waiting before we could actually talk to a human on the phone to help us get it fixed. Then we had to talk to customer service at the airport as well which was a 90 minute wait. The employees were wonderful and helpful when we talked to them, but the wait time was unacceptable.

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.

Pros: "Excellent American Airlines crew the purser Lisa was very welcoming and helpful and attentive during the flight. Seamless!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Signs etc were clear. Emailed for delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with little explanation to why."
Pros: "Everything was seamless."
Pros: "Once getting on the plane, experience was great. 15/10 on the inflight entertainment option. Was not expecting that luxury and was super grateful! Flight attendants were amazingly sweet and helpful. (Cali and Stephanie)"
Cons: "the gate was never posted on the mobile boarding pass, online, the tv next to the gate or the airport boards (it was never posted anywhere). Everywhere said TBD or was blank when everything else was filled. I only accidentally found the gate because I knew my flight should be boarding so I went to all the lines and it ultimately was the unmarked one and I had to ask the person at the desk. I almost missed this flight because the lack of communication on what gate the flight was from."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless, crew and flight attendants were awesome."
Cons: "The aircraft itself seemed dated. Very limited seat adjustment options, considering I was in First Class"
Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Cons: "They could at least announce boarding group 4..."
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: "The crew was great, the plane itself seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "Food was better than I expected, but still airplane food"
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: "great trip"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "allow us to choose seats without financial restriction"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "snacks"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No snacks because of short trip, so can’t rate properly."
Cons: "small plane"
Pros: "Flight was under 4 hours."
Cons: "No where to store carry on since everyone is allowed to bring larger bags than they should so you end up having to stuff everything under the seat leaving no room for your legs. Very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Easy on getting the boarding pass"
Cons: "Bit crowded, flight too full"
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"
Pros: "Flight attendants were the best ever."
Cons: "Entertainment set up was confusing and slow. Headphones didn’t work. Seat didn’t recline."
Cons: "I’m not sure how this flight was as I missed it due to a delay from YYZ to ORD"
Pros: "nothing was exceptional"
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but we had a long delay because of weather"
Pros: "Considering BA cancelled our flight to Milan because our Delta flight to JFK was late....we had to buy 2 more round trip tickets. No one from Kayak or BA helped us.. we were out anithet $1100. ..worst experience ever will never use Kayak again. The right thing to do is for Kayak to refund our original.tickets....since we had no control over our delayed flight but I am sure that will not happen."
Cons: "See above ....."
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Pros: "Good price, decent comfort, pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"
Pros: "Pilots were excellent and flight crew was good."
Cons: "I signed up for a British Airways flight and American Airlines flew the route."
Cons: "this flight was delayed going both directions."
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "Crew members and staff taking tickets were courteous"
Cons: "Tiny seats - actually flight was cancelled just before boarding time. I flew AA from State College to Philadelphia then."
Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"
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: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the ground staff made no effort to update its passengers as the mood to grow angry, however instead two of the counter people continued to laugh joke and talk between themselves as everyone grew more and more restless by 6:30pm"
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was out, and the a/c was barely working-not good for a four hour flight. Instead of addressing the issues the flight crew was more interested in chatting with each other. No pre-flight drink service in first class, they rarely even passed through the canin."
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."
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Pros: "Fomos atendidos pelo JIM ao fazer o check in e despachar as malas e adoramos o atendimento. Muito simpático e gentil."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi"

The plane was expected to board early and yet still didn't pull away from the gate 2 minutes late.

WiFi onboard would’ve been nice. Hot coffee, too.

Love flying Allegiant!!! The only hiccup this time was, they moved my seats, without any notice, so my family was separated for the flight. Frustrating because I paid for seat selection, and my son really does not like flying! Other than that, great as usual!

Perfecto flight

Nonstop flight you can’t beat it for the price!

My friend I was going with mom passed away the day before the trip and we had to cancel our trip. Allegiant doesn’t have a refund of any type. Frontier was my return flight and at least offered a partial credit which sucks but beats nothing.

They don’t, as a policy, check bags to final destination. It’s not an option. I’d rather walk than fly with these clowns.

Non stop flight with no issues. Wish they weren’t seasonal to Asheville

My family in Arizona didn’t have a printer to print our return flight tickets, so I took a screenshot of our tickets on my phone. Apparently, when you go through security they enlarge the QR code, which makes it blurry, so it can’t be scanned. We had to go back to the check in desk and pay $5 for each ticket to be printed. Lesson learned, print out all flight tickets before you leave.

Late, dirty and uncomfortable.

Pros: "Quick boarding. A bit of personality from pilot"
Cons: "The delay at gate was said to be 10 minutes- no update for at least 30. Almost an hour waiting for gate"
Pros: "Nothing everything was smooth"
Cons: "Nothin g"
Pros: "Excellent leg room in standard seating. On-time with quick and efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Covid travel. Had us board an hour before take off and the back half of the plane was 100% full. Every seat including middle seats. 15 min before take off they allowed passengers to take empty seats and spread out."
Cons: "Absolutely GREAT!!!"
Cons: "The ticket lady was rude just nasty and upset for no reason."
Cons: "Reclining seats would be great!!"
Cons: "Alligient air is an excellent economy airline that flies non-stop to smaller cities."
Cons: "Late to load and then put us all on the plane and made us sit on tarmac for over 1 1/2 hours"
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "OMG, miffed and aggravated right now!! Currently on Allegiant Flight 1355. PIE to CVG A non-eating flight. These POSs MFers decide to have a friggen pizza party in the middle of the flight"
Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Met expectations"
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding really"
Cons: "It’s a low cost airline, so expectations are very low. Plane was very dirty because it just keeps on hopping back and forth without any cleaning service it seems"
Pros: "Comfortable and inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "It was all good!"
Pros: "I finally got home"
Cons: "We took off 3 hours late. No transparency about what the delay was or how long, they just kept stringing us along 30 minutes to an hour at a time."
Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Seats were way to small for tall people with long legs..........."
Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Hsve to pay for drinks & snacks"
Pros: "Timing and ease of travel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "This was the first flight if the day and the plane floors were fithly. It look as though they have not been vacuumed in a few days!!!"
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped but I suppose most are these days"
Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"
Cons: "I will never fly you again. Sure you don’t care."
Cons: "Lousy airline. Left gate late and unfriendly crew. Wanted to charge me for carry on."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, very polite unlike the United flights I have taken. I was told the space would be uncomfortable but it was absolutely fine for the short flight."
Cons: "No beverage service. Not even water is offered."
Pros: "somehow after waiting on tamarac for half hour, we still got to Asheville, destination, on time."
Cons: "boarding in the rain, areas to check your bag and check in were so crowded you couldn't even find a proper line calling out names, some of the voices couldn't be heard no one available to answer questions what line a person should get in.som"
Cons: "The beer"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Everything about Aligiant is horrible. Service, attitude, even the pilots can’t land smoothly. As a diabetic, they don’t even give you water withiit paying for it. Had my wallet in my checked bag and almost had a health issue."
Cons: "parking my car 2 weeks in Asheville Long term was $96. I should have gone to Charlotte, parked at my friend's house and paid AA the same rate for a nicer seat and cabin leg room. a la carte pricing ran my bill up even with NO checked luggage. Asheville doesn't have a shuttle service for the long-term parking."
Pros: "friendly helpful staff. on time. safe."
Cons: "my suitcase went to the WRONG destination. very inconvenient and expensive. also plane interior was pretty shabby which made me wonder about the engines, mechanical etc."
Cons: "I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app."
Cons: "It was raining when we landed and we were told the guy didn't want to come out in the rain to open the door so we were stuck on the plane for a while. Being Florida, it rains. If it's your job to pen a plane door, I would think it's reasonable you do it in the rain sometimes. Then up to the passengers on board whether or not they want to get out of the plane when it's raining."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was fast but I was coming from Vegas so it’s not that far."
Cons: "They charged me $50 for a carry on even after I told them repeatedly that I tried to change it on my ticket days before I was leaving. It would not let me change it or even check in on the mobile app. It was very hot and we had to wait for awhile before any air conditioning started. No entertainment or complimentary drinks."
Pros: "Direct flight to my Destination"
Cons: "Rental car I paid for on Allegiant website didn't include $50 in airport and sales taxes making it look like the Allegiant rentals were about the same as renting directly from rental car companies. Problem is that Allegiant didn't include taxes in the quote or amount I paid online. Surprise when I got to my destination and was told it would be $50 more. Alamo agent said I wasn't the first person to have that problem. Then on return my bag was damaged and was told I could place a claim at the ticket counter. It would have been helpful to have an agent there or a way to contact an agent. No such luck. After bag charges, poor service and hidden fees Allegiant isn't really a great deal."
Pros: "Great flight. On time. Easy on. Easy off. And amazing fares."
Cons: "Everything great"
Pros: "Plane was late. 2 years ago it was late and while there at the airport I heard Allgeant routine runs hours late or cancels. 3-4 hours, not an hour. Good thing I dont fly too often"
Pros: "Very efficient service... for a first experience we were pretty impressed because your review overall were not that great. Good job."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."
Pros: "It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I am handicapped and was given the best possible service"
Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."
Cons: "Significant Delay"
Cons: "Arrival in Ft Lauderdale... Bags took an hour to get to carrousel. Never were posted on the information. Flight were, as expected, uncomfortable."

Having problems connecting with my MacBook Pro. Found later that Safari is no supported and had to use the Firefox or google apps. Could have had that in the available brochures, I did not see it. Also lots of empty seats where UA was trying to sell but would not let the 'lower' class passengers move into them even though we were pilots going into a exit row. Once the door closes they are not going to sell anymore of those seats so why not do 'upgrades' for passengers to the 'bit' more expensive class. I get the first class barrier but when in a cattle car. . . . . . . .

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.

Everything was on time and staff was great

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."
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our flight were very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful with large package"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "On time and great professional staff throughout"
Cons: "Wi-Fi, as usual, was not working. Plus, there were no screens in the seat, so passengers have to rely on their own smartphones/tablets/magazines/books to keep entertained."
Cons: "The flight was delayed then to top it off we sat on the tarmac awaiting to off load in DesMoines. We spent just as much time waiting to off load as we did in flight!"
Pros: "Early arrival to DSM."
Cons: "Baggage took forever. . Caused a lot of confusion if at right claim carousel. Over 30min & counting...."
Pros: "We were delayed taking off from Denver due to snow storm. The crew was communicative and accommodating."
Pros: "Well, I got there."
Cons: "Purchased economy plus bundle. United employee closed gate in my face at ORD. United Club toilets were filthy and the worst of my problems was the ridiculous selection of teas. (Toilets outside of United Club much cleaner.) I had an economy plus seat, but this did not allow me to board early. So I boarded late and there was no seat in front of me. So I could not put my carry on in front of me. I asked if I could put my bag in top, but attendant told me that I had to ask the first class person in front of me for a favor and thank them for the favor. I did. But this was one of the more disgusting experiences that I have had on an airplane and I paid an extra 100 USD for the privilege of it."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Thanks"
Cons: "Cannot think of a thing"
Pros: "Got me from point A to B"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing, very skimpy on drinks, coffee maker didn't work. Ask volunteers to move to back of plane to balance out weight."
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: "The crew was one of most pleasurable group that I've flown with. Polite AND funny!"
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: "Our flight was canceled and they did not notify us"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That i sat grounded for an extra 45min over Fuel discrepancy."
Pros: "was"
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: "Will bw traveling to chicago then to iowa"
Cons: "Flight delay and itenirary changed"
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: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"
Pros: "The people on the flight with me"
Cons: "The flight attendants were cocky and then my flight was worse overall my flights in all were horrible with united . I've never been sick on a plain and I got so sick for the landings"
Pros: "Boarding procedure and crew were excellent!"
Pros: "Arrival was late and United held the connecting flight! Thanks United."
Pros: "No-thing!!!"
Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ,7:30 pm to 11:45pm"
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."
Pros: "The flight I was able to get on eventually had pleasant crew and arrived early."
Cons: "Where to start.... they "delayed" my flight for 11 hrs from 5:55pm to 0700am due to "weather" so no hotel or food vouchers would be issued. THEY ALSO SAID "don't bother going stand by for the other two flights leaving this evening as they will be overbooked or "cancelled" as well. When I walked to customer service they stated it was NOT cancelled but rather "rescheduled due to operational issues" then they put me on stand by for the next flight leaving in a couple hours. I boarded that flight only to be pulled out of my seat the last second before the gate closed saying there was an error and there were two "Fishers" and I was in one of thier seats. After closing the door and departing the gate the agent said "whoops" I guess it was a small child that was to be on the parents lap. "Sorry" as the plane left with an empty seat that I had been sitting in. After a long conversations with the supervisor they finally were able to book me on the last flight out that night arriving in DM at 12:15 in am. I had to dig my original boarding pass out of the garbage as they had refused to put me in first class... an upgrade I had paid for. After being lied to repeatedly about status of plane and bumped from flight due to incompetent gate agent I was able to finally procure a $10 food voucher (a beer is $11 at the airport. There are additional bungles including lost luggage and more to this saga but I think you get the picture."
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: "No help from the flight attendants before we landed to inquire to see if the connecting flight would wait - just MINUTES!"
Cons: "Late night flight to begin with then mechanical issues so more delay which made it later. Chicago ground folks were very good at keeping us informed on the status."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Same as above."
Pros: "It landed in Des Moines 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Flight, when it the air, was fine. But..."
Cons: "We arrived from Tampa about 8:00am to discover shortly later that flight 558 would be delayed to 9:30am. Then at 9:30 it was announced the plane is to be delayed to 10:30. Shortly after that announcement it was announced a gate change and further delay to 11:30. Then another delay to 12:20. finally departed."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Fast boarding, pleasant crew, nice leg room!"
Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."
