Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was nice"
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: "Delta crew and offerings are great."
Pros: "Delta treats people like friends. That’s all it takes to be successful. Delays are easy, mechanicals are easy. Great friendly team."

Pros: "Crew was nice and took care of us. We respected them and got it right back."
Cons: "It was no fault of the airline, but we got his with some weather delays which dampered our very long trip. Also, the leg room on the flight from Detroit to PDX was very small, we got lucky that we only had two people for our row of three seats. Let us stretch some."
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: "That Delta was not more accommodating when I missed my flight.. Got totally lost in Austin. Have never driven there before and highways were difficult at times. $503 to get on another flight home. Ended up getting better deal at Southwest. Will most likely stick with them next time I am forced to fly."

Cons: "Takes so long to board plane"
Pros: "2: 1/2 delay"
Cons: "They put us on the plane after waiting 11/2 hours, we all had to deplane as the mechanical problems were not done correctly. We waited another hour to correct before leaving. The gate agent was able to get me on a later connecting flight to Charleston. That was a positive."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Pros: "The crew are very nice on both flights and they were very courteous the seats.T"
Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable."
Pros: "The longer leg space"

Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"

Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Pros: "The long delay could of been avoided if the Delta counter had lied to me by saying I wouldn't have a problem changing my flight out early once I got into NYC from China Not a happy Delta customer There were delays and no compensation"

Cons: "Snack quantity and choices."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"

Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."

Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."

Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"

Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."

Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."
Pros: "Delays and no proper customer service."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Business is EconAnthro my seats with the middle seat open."
Pros: "The seat was really comfortable and I was able to sleep the whole flight with no disturbance"
Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "Polite and friendly service"
Cons: "Not necessary to buy a business class ticket, as all the new planes have standard economy seats in the front as well."
Pros: "Quick boarding, comfortable seating. Great food!"
Cons: "The seats and IFE were a bit outdated. Comfortable, but outdated. My family had issues with their screens and one had to use the remote as the touch screen was no longer functional."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"
Cons: "First class bathroom could have been cleaner and wider - very narrow, hard to maneuver"
Pros: "Crew was attentive. Timings were spot on."
Cons: "Virtually no information at boarding which made everybody just make a huge line. Boarding they a bus, it was raining and we got wet."
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Pros: "Check in agent extremely helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Not boarding on tarmac via bus. Sandwich - tartar sauce and “chicken” - with two quarter sized pieces of meat was terrible."
Cons: "Tell me i would misst the next flight and that my beg will not go to the final airport."
Pros: "Nothing !! Such a bullshit flight ever !!!"
Cons: "No tv fo 14 hr long flight !! Flight delayed for 1 he !! No proper arranged to board .. it was kiosk!! Food quality was worse. No space to seat !! Can’t sleep .. no leg space !! Worst fight till the date !!!"
Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."
Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "Multiple crew members paid constant helpful attention to my mother (88yrs of age) during boarding, deboarding and throughout the entire flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Cons: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"
Cons: "Poor service. Terrible food. Aging aircraft. Terrible in-flight entertainment system. Really not good AirFrance."
Pros: "Great seat. Comfortable. Quick boarding."
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to wake me for breakfast....forgot. Long wait for bathroom,"
Pros: "Fantastic Crew!"
Cons: "Seats are comfortable but tight."
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"
Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Pros: "Very quiet"
Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Cons: "Staff where so unhelpful that I missed my flight and then refused to offer any assistance as to how I could remedy this situation. This cost me over €180 which is a weeks food and stay for me. Don't fly with these guys or with air Croatia."
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Pros: "The service was very professional."
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Pros: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."
Cons: "There should be more layover time as I almost missed my flight and My luggage was delayed!!"
Pros: "Although we departed late from Paris, it arrived on time to Mexico City. Most of the stewardess very professional and kind."
Cons: "Although we traveled in Business, all business cabins were full of children, tired crying, walking around. My suggestion to AIR France would be that the small cabin of business were assigned to adults only. Regarding food, some options were not available when our turn came."
Pros: "Cabin crew very friendly and caring."
Cons: "Airport services and lounge are OK."
Pros: "It es a good flight back"
Cons: "Items missing on duty free purchases"
Pros: "Short, lots of leg space"
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) Front seat pocket bulging with 2 extra-thick in-flight magazines 2) No on-board wifi 3) Not much seating room - very thin"
Cons: "Clean. Courtesy of staff on plane."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly"
Cons: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."
Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"
Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Pros: "Loved the movie selection and the food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Pros: "Wheel chair service at LAX is run by the airport. Their priority is to get you to your flight, not to a VIP room regardless of how early you check in."
Pros: "There were 4 of us flying from Atlanta, there was a great amount of leg room, tvs were nice, remote control for the tv fit into the seat, the way the plane was laid out, the 4 of us sat in a middle row, which meant no window seat (which my sister was disappointed), dinner options were great, wine was complementary"
Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."
Pros: "Kind, courteous, attentive crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Airport handling is catastrophic. A lost bagage created the twins to be locked. Half an hour and we could not enter. Delays and huge mess in front of police checkpoint. No announcement and no care for passengers approaching departure time. And to top it all no announcement of any delays. Had to cheat my way through the priority line and run a sprint through security and beyond. Reached the gate to note that there was a delay of 5 minutes.... Grrrr"
Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant, flight went as expected."
Cons: "Only issue was being held on the tarmac for 50 minutes causing delayed takeoff. No other issues"
Cons: "Either less stingybwith Basic Economy or take one less chance to repeat that it is basic."
Cons: "Economy basic on American is terrible."
Pros: "Signs etc were clear. Emailed for delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with little explanation to why."
Cons: "It was extremely hot on that flight. I continually had to get up to cool off."
Pros: "Everything was seamless."
Pros: "the crew were amazing. And the airplane we took was very modernized with all the electronics. Had a great flight"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "More drinks"
Pros: "Direct flight and good personal service provided by crew."

Cons: "Board planes from the back to front to avoid aisle congestion while boarding."
Cons: "Will Never fly amercan air line"
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "Paid extra for free booze, but they didn’t serve booze, except to first class of course. Saying the flight was so quick, they weren’t even getting it out."
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: "Plane was late in arriving so boarding was delayed. Took off 1/2 hour late, but landed on time in Miami."
Cons: "Snack offered by American could be better than some dry cookies. Especially for Diabetic passengers."
Pros: "The only good thing about the flight was the crew."
Cons: "I’m surprised there weren't chickens and goats flying with us. The seats were worn out and ratty. There was no where to charge a phone or electronics. No in seat tv screen so was forced to watch the tiny overhead screen of terrible tv shows and mediocre movies. I prepaid for a seat a head of time which was given to someone else. Also quite a bit of heavy turbulence the entire flight. Not ideal for an 8 hr flight. I’m lucky I brought an external charger and some xanax. Never again"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No snacks because of short trip, so can’t rate properly."
Pros: "food, drinks, seats, price"
Cons: "small plane"
Cons: "Very cold cabin despite request to make it warmer, making it impossible to sleep. Food was cheap, carb-heavy fare - rice, crackers, a roll, sugar dessert bisquets all in one meal."
Pros: "Seats were nice and enjoyed the entertainment. Late flight meant loads of open seats and everyone was very happy about that."
Cons: "Delayed a half hour to board because flight attendants other flight was late getting in, but they kept us informed the entire time. Wasn’t their faults. Once we were on the plane, our flight was delayed for an hour, once again the pilots kept us informed and it wasn’t their faults. But it was kinda annoying."
Pros: "The cost"
Cons: "The fact that it was and appears to still be... Incredibly difficult to get ahold of airline for some form of compensation or credit for the flight I missed... I had made the attempt periodically since and it had still been without any luck."
Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"
Cons: "My flight back home was cancelled without any notice and so we had to spend an extra night. The flight the next day went without a hitch, so it sort of made up for it."
Pros: "Got to destination early, nice leather seat."
Cons: "Food was horrible and no TV in each seat."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. Sound on left side of plane did not work. Ran out of wine while pouring at dinner for an international flight. Bith wife and I got sick after eating on the plane. American Airlines Plane."
Pros: "My flight wasn't completely full, so I had a row to myself. The pilot was excellent; takeoff and landing were very smooth."
Cons: "I had to gate check my luggage because of the small plane size. Had I had a shorter layover this could have caused an issue for me."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 5 hours last minute, making my layover 17 hours long. The delay caused my car rental place to give away my reservation so I had to wait an additional 2.5 hours to get a rental car. The primary reason for my travel was a wedding and although I made the actual wedding, I missed most of the pre-wedding activities that I had rsvped for. The seats were really uncomfortable, particularly the lack of low back support. I was very sore after the flight and was unable to sleep despite having been awake for over 24 hours prior to the flight. We were finally given meal tickets but was unable to use as everything closed at 10pm."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, comfort on flight."
Cons: "The delay for 3 hours."
Cons: "this flight was delayed going both directions."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The planes are old. Needless to say there is no Wi-Fi, and the only entertainment on a 7.5 hour flight was a tiny tv in the center of aisle. 1987 tech in 2017. Our plane was delayed for 8 hours due to a broken hydrolics system, and no compensation for additional expenses due to equipment failure was offered."
Pros: "it was easy to check in and short layovers"
Cons: "planes were really old and uncomfortable, I could not sleep at all, the seats are ridiculously small and not fit for a grown up. One of the worst flights ever for sure"
Pros: "Never made this flight they rerouted."
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though it was a red-eye, it still would have been nice to have a tv for an international flight, or at the least a way to charge your electronics."
Pros: "New plane, big TV screens at each chair, got a nice emergency row seat."
Cons: "Ground delayed for two hours, somewhat uncomfortable seat, one of our "emergency row" seats we paid for wasn't actually an emergency row."
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: "Crew was great, took off and landed early."
Cons: "Plane was very dated, food service was aweful..... bag of chips in first class."
Cons: "Still sitting at the airport at 1am. 5 hours later. The incoming plane had "damage" to it so they were going to give us a new plane... 5 hours later and sitting here freezing. American Airlines cannot come up with one extra plane?? Very disappointed"
Pros: "Good foot room."
Cons: "The Crew were incredibly rude, and the pilot was unapologetic for being late coming back. They offered little to no comfort. They replied rudely to people when they asked them to repeat themselves because they couldn't hear. They were not very helpful and seemed annoyed and irritable. The plane was uncomfortable and the screens in front of me were useless because they were so low quality. The air craft has an option for fax but has no USB charger or port for a 10 hour flight. The aircraft I was on was not fit for that long of a distance."
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: "Being late, i already have long wait at the airport"
Pros: "Crew were nice. Very clean. On time"
Cons: "No entertainment console unlike the plane that i flew with going to Miami. I was able to watch a movie and listen to music."
Pros: "the wine was good"
Cons: "the tv"
Pros: "Americans new 737s are pretty cool. The interior design is modern almost spacious. Seat back entertainment centers are like something you would find on international flights. There is even an A/C plug to charge your electronics. The seats don't just recline, they tilt the seat as well as the back. That said, the seat depth is akin to sitting on a picnik bench."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that while I selected seats when I made my reservations they were not held when I confirmed my return flight on line. The gate attendant informed me that since I did not book thru AA my selections were " requests" with no obligation to reserve the seats."
Pros: "The plane left on time and the flight crew were very courteous."
Cons: "Seats were hard and to close and not enough leg room. We had a new Airbus on an AA flight from San Francisco to Dallas that had wider seats that were softer and enough leg room. That was a great plane. There was no personal entertainment. Only one big screen coming out of the ceiling and playing a children's movie. Did not listen to it."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and the food was decent."
Cons: "Boarded us onto a plane with a broken engine, deboarded the plane and delayed the flight 4 hours. Then we sat on the tarmac for an hour after landing because they didn't inform the airport that we were in a new, larger plane."
Pros: "My first plane from Ashevile to Charlotte was fine."
Cons: "This plane was a little "scarier" than the other but I believe that it was because it was such a small plane."
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient schedule"
Cons: "Ground delay at JFK, no personal entertainment system"
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: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Serve drinks faster we didn't get a drink until we was 20 min into flight. I pay for first class expect a drink before we take off."
Cons: "Better communication and air conditioning on the plane as we waited for hours to take off"
Pros: "Flight was faster than expected."
Cons: "Stuck with a window seat next to a couple on a group tour. She spilled into my seat so we kept jockeying for better comfort next to each other."
Pros: "What’s to like about flying commercial economy ? The chicken meal was tasty though."
Cons: "45 min delay boarding because the catering was late. Room in the seats. Plug between seats was not very reliable."
Pros: "Very efficient service and crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment skipped a lot and sound was bad. Flight felt very busy overall for a red-eye... Difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful with large package"
Cons: "This flight was not a Lufthansa flight as advertised. It was a United flight. And they changed the plane, I believe. The two aisle seats I reserved ended up being a middle and a window seat. Grrr..."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "Legroom was minimal."
Pros: "The captain managed to get us almost with no turbulence through bumpy weather. The seats are as narrow as the standard, but the pitch is fine."
Cons: "If you want to watch anything on the screens, you have to pay Direct TV for it."
Cons: "Baggage took forever. . Caused a lot of confusion if at right claim carousel. Over 30min & counting...."
Pros: "Free movies/TV"
Cons: "A pancake sized hole was burned into my luggage destroying my clothing, toiletries and computer. United Airlines Baggage Services has directed me to purchase replacements for the items destroyed and submit receipts. However, they are maintaining they will NOT replace my laptop which was destroyed. It will cost over $1000 to replace the laptop alone."
Pros: "I liked the staff at united in Pittsburgh who helped solve the real mess with my reservation"
Cons: "I did not like having my flight to Düsseldorf changed to flight to Frankfurt without being told of the change. That flight was late so I missed my connection to GVA- Frankfurt is a dreadful airport"
Pros: "United staff worked with me to book a round-about itinerary on a different airline that got me to my destination within 8 hours of the original flight. Progress announcements were made at regular, predictable intervals."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled an hour after scheduled takeoff due to mechanical issues. The plane was actually repaired, but the time it took to do so exceeded the flight crew's hours. I understand the practical implications, but in the moment it did feel maddeningly bureaucratic."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very welcoming"
Pros: "Our family was able to sit together"
Cons: "The flight left late It arrived late and we sat out away from the gate for 15-20 minutes before getting up to the gate to deplane."
Pros: "2 sear rows so no middle seat"
Cons: "Late departure"
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"
Pros: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Cons: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Pros: "While it was a long flight it was comfortable and surprisingly the food was good."
Cons: "We ran late as the plane needed some work on it before we could take off; when it was finally done there was a storm and could not take off again. We were behind over an hour before we could leave but we made up for in as we had good tail wind."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and they did not notify us"
Cons: "That i sat grounded for an extra 45min over Fuel discrepancy."
Cons: "My booking confirmation told me we were on Lufthansa flight #7644 so naturally we went to the Lufthansa terminal at the airport. We waited in line to check in and were then redirected to a different terminal because we were actually flying United. How did that happen and why wasn't it explained ahead of time? The seat was too small for an international flight and the entertainment was unwatchable because there was a constant screeching sound in the headphones, a problem with the jack."
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have more room"
Pros: "Delayed to Albany 2 hrs, no compensation, not even a beer!"
Pros: "First leg of journey cancelled because of weather, so we drove to ORD. Phone agents were nice, helpful, and effective."
Cons: "Somehow, airplane food keeps getting worse. There's got to be a bottom somewhere, but we haven't found it yet."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and lights left on so I couldn't sleep."
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."
Cons: "Food was embarrassingly poor I would rather pay additional fees to upgrade to s quality meal Bags in Edinburgh took over an hour and a half to retrieve But, the flight was safe and the crew very good"
Pros: "Boarding procedure and crew were 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."
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."
Pros: "Great airline A+"
Pros: "Very cramped seats."
Pros: "I think is too much money that I have to pay for the second baggage"
Cons: "I think is too much money that we have to pay for the second baggage"
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."
Pros: "Professionalism of check-in staff"
Cons: "Unfriendly flight attendant"
Pros: "The flight attendant did the best he could knowing I was uncomfortably hot and there was nothing I could do. He gave me an extra ice cream to help :)"
Cons: "Complained to flight attendant about RIDICULOUSLY high temperature of the air craft. Flight attendants told me they had already requested the pilots turn the head down twice. The temperature of the plane made me extremely uncomfortable and unhappy."
Pros: "We left nearly on time, arrived on time and had a pleasant comfortable flight. I went to sleep early and skipped the food and drink, so I cannot comment on this aspect of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the pilot kept us informed at all times. For example, we got to Dayton early and we sat on the Tarmac for about five minutes as there was another plane there. That was no problem. But, after plane left we sat there until it was time for us to arrive before ground crew came out. Then, we waited 20 minutes for our baggage. That was not your fault. That was the fault of the airport as it has happened to me before. The pilot was very apologetic and kept us informed. I appreciated that very much."
Cons: "I was so excited because there were TV's on each seat, but I could not use because the place where I had to plug in for sound was broken. That was a disappointment."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take off yet. The flight was cancelled. I got 5 hrs sleep and had to be back at the airport, so I can have the longest day ever, but I guess that doesn't matter, because nobody does anything except shuffle you along"
