Cons: Other travellers where rude
Cons: Just hate the super smaller seats and the reduced spaces everywhere
Pros: The crew was amazing, the seats were super comfortable, entertainment was great, lots of movies to choose from. Also they handed out a lot of great snacks
Cons: The delay was totally unexpected and frustrating particularly when no bad weather around!
Pros: The crew was great.
Cons: The flight and crew were great. But I was not able to choose my seat because I purchased an economy flight. I was very uncomfortable. But I was luck that that people that were sitting with me were great.
Pros: The crew was so nice especially the man who came to thank me for keeping my body out of the way of those who were serving and those using the bathroom. My husband an I were in the last row. He offered me a free drink, which I didn’t accept but I felt so good.
Pros: The crew was amazing. My seat was comfortable.
Cons: The plane was delayed. It arrived over 25 minutes after it was originally scheduled to.
Cons: Flight was delayed due to crew not being available.
Pros: While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!
Cons: Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful.
Cons: Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks.
Cons: Had to collect & re check luggage between flights. Couldn't they have been transferred to the next aircraft?
Cons: Everything was good!
Cons: I understand when weather is rough not moving the beverage carts but a small bottle of water would be appreciated.
Pros: The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding.
Cons: There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight.
Pros: We had purchased economy tickets and got assigned seats that were not next to each other. As we were boarding the ticket person gave us a new seat assignment closer to the front and next to each other – we really appreciated and liked it. Makes me want to fly Delta again!
Pros: Being in First Class
Cons: Heavier food selection would be appreciated.
Cons: Seats were a little tight.
Cons: we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them.
Pros: Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system
Cons: Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale.
Pros: On time.
Cons: Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars.
Pros: Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air.
Cons: For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant.
Pros: The welcoming and kindness of flight attendants and staff
Cons: That headsets are not free and the leg space seemed tighter than usual
Cons: When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close
Cons: The two hour delay
Pros: Aircraft appeared to be brand new
Pros: I always enjoy my flights on Delta the staff members are always pleasant and helpful, not to mention a smooth flight. :)
Pros: Great crew
Cons: I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable.
Pros: Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew
Cons: No problems
Pros: Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled.
Cons: Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report.
Pros: New Plane - super roomy great selections of movies to watch for free on the TV!
Pros: We made it safe.
Cons: The constant delays. And nothing was done about it. Not even we're sorry. Here's a voucher. Or here's something on us due to the circumstances.
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
Pros: Delta Comfort seats
Cons: Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame
Pros: Delta Comfort seats
Cons: Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it.
Cons: They were rude and notnhelpful lost my luggage
Pros: Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew.
Cons: No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers.
Pros: I felt the entire flight crew was there to make my trip more pleasant. The plane was new and had free video and usb outlets to charge my devices.
Cons: Nothing, truly an excellent experience.
Cons: Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation.
Pros: The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options
Cons: Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal.
Pros: Punctuation, friendliness, cleanliness and the advantage of having a plug to charge my phone
Cons: More snacks
Cons: We had to change flight to West Palm as there was an engine problem. We had to turnaround from the runway. How plane wasn’t inspected since it arrived in Newark yesterday?
Pros: Everything was excellent
Cons: Not much,just a cold beer
Pros: In flight entertainment, crew were very good. Flight got in early.
Cons: Airlines, in general, are screwing passengers. Limiting offerings in flight. crew is good though.
Pros: Yes & yes.
Cons: Time delays & changing gates
Pros: It was just a quick flight, but everything/everyone was efficient and made the process/flight no problem. Great experience.
Pros: smooth flight. Attendants were great flight crew super nice!
Cons: Seating is just too close. Seats can be more comfortable for what we pay for. A little more room an comfort can go a long way
Cons: Serve some food. Our trip to EWR and back we just got a packet of pretzels. Not worth a $500 ticket!! Also could you guys please get with the times and update your media. What’s with this no pause and no record media player where you can only watch a movie if you so happen to switch the channel on t
Cons: Baggage, late flight, other delays.
Cons: The plane
Cons: The person next to me he needed to see it’s not one he was so big
Pros: The flight was shorter due to a tailwind.
Cons: Middle seat, over crowded and the guy next to me had his emotional support rabbit.
Cons: Flight was extremely hot the entire way
Pros: The flight attendants were extremely nice, understanding and accommodating. I hope To fly with them again.
Cons: Although not United’s fault, The flight was very uncomfortable as several of the passengers were rude and out if line, one almost accusing me of stealing her husband’s seat all because I was traveling with my ESA companion. I travel with her for a reason and that situation did not help but the flight attendants did everything possible to fix the situation.
Pros: The crew was exceptionally nice.
Cons: Advising passengers in a timely fashion about weather delays. Left for air post @ 3:15 for a 5:58 flight. When I got to Newark I discovered my flight was delayed. Left the party early, which was reason for trip to sit in airport for hours. I generally fly Jet Blue & I definitely will stay with that airline. Second experience & last one with United. Paid $25 extra for a roomier seat which I never have to do with Jet Blue.
Pros: The crew was extremely nice!!!
Cons: I think that the notification regarding the original delay was sent too late. The reason for the delays was never really explained till much later.
Pros: Flight was good, nothing stood out as good or bad. It just seems like a very tight space (I'm 5'3 and less than 150 lbs).
Cons: Going through TSA in Newark Airport was HORRENDOUS. A TSA agent grabbed my things out of my hand and threw it on the belt without any consent from me. I was still unpacking my carry on, to abide to the rules and no she just wouldn't have it and was very rude.
Pros: Bought a ticket through a discount site. Since I'm a senior I really didn't realize certain things. Didn't realize my TSA wasn't accepted with this ticket, also I'm was in group 5 & always in middle seat. First time I flew on United. I bought the same type of ticket for a flight in April very unhappy about my mistake. I used Skiplagged.
Cons: The crew was very helpful & pleasant.
Pros: Flew First Class from Chicago to Fort Lauderdale. The food was a banana and the seat in front of me was broken and when it went back, it was in my lap. No one seemed to care..
Cons: No variety of snacks options
Pros: Plenty of leg space and crew was friendly
Pros: Friendly efficient staff with good service and comfortable jet.
Cons: Armrests didn't go up in our row only, would have been nice to know. Waffle snacks taste good but are very crumbly and make a mess, there were other options for $$. Stating "free wifi" is misleading as you have to pay for internet access.
Cons: Flight was over 4 hours late and they just 20 mins ups to death!! Had to spend lots of $$$ on urber tp get home because my ride that was cpming at 11:00 pm could not come at 4:30.am since most people have to work.
Cons: I am enrolled in MileagePlus United Card member which has one check in bag free for the first time. Still I was charged me $50 extra for my check in bag. They should have told me prior at the time of check in but they stopped me at the gate. I am not at all happy with what has happened.
Pros: The flight crew and the cabin crew were professional and efficient and friendly. The ginger ale kept me from getting nauseous during the turbulent approach.
Cons: I realize that the airline doesn't have much control over screaming babies, but the reality is, my flight experience was significantly worse because of one, a couple rows back, who kept screaming at the top of their voice for most of the flight. While everyone was seating themselves, my fellow rowmates asked me to exchange my window seat for an aisle seat, so that grandmother, mother, and daughter could sit together. That put me two rows closer to that screaming baby. I came prepared to watch a movie with my phone and new noise canceling headphones, and then discovered the United Wi-Fi didn't offer movies on that flight, the same aircraft type and route as when I was able to watch a movie that way, earlier this year. I didn't find a way to connect my Bluetooth headphones to the plane's entertainment system, and I'm also disappointed in myself, to have to say, it took me far too long, to figure out that I needed to interact with the screen in front of me, through the control pad under my elbow on the armrest. By that time, there wasn't enough time left in the flight, to start a movie. So, I just played music stored on my phone, which helped mask the baby screams.
Cons: The fact that as a 6ft person at 180lbs could barely fit in the seat is unacceptable.. I rather fly spirit for that
Cons: No communication when extreme turbulence was happening. I thought i was dying, i cried as well as the person in my section. The lady behind me appeared to be praying.
Pros: It was a pretty standard flight. Nothing stands out.
Cons: We were delayed due to mechanical issues, had to wait for a new plane...took a long time - 90+ minutes. However, they kept us in the loop and we knew exactly what to expect. Handled as well as can be expected.
Pros: On time departure and arrival
Cons: That you charge to watch the entertainment.
Pros: The blanket was nice. The crew was very friendly.
Cons: See anove
Cons: 4 hour delay
Cons: No free tv or wifi, seats are normal
Pros: I finally made it home and my luggage wasn't lost thus time.
Cons: Boarding was slow, staff was cranky, literally had my bag of snacks thrown at me. Overall what was expected of a united flight.
Cons: I had to changes terminals 2x and flight was delayed 2x.
Pros: Was an easy flight and staff was pleasant and efficient
Cons: The gate crew stopped the last 40 people from bringing on their carry on bags... of course I was the first person of the 40. When I got on the plane... there were numerous EMPTY overhead bins and further, my bag would have fit comfortably under the even more space seat in front of me. I plan my travel carefully so I can bring on the plane. They were wrong for gate checking without asking the crew ON the plane. All 40 bags would have made it. BS. Flight delayed awaiting for another crew member. Snack was mixed bag of "stuff". Would prefer a choice of name brand snacks or nothing at all. Wifi should be free. What does it cost them?
Pros: United covered my hotel room and gave me $30 in meal vouchers. Would have rather been at my destination though.
Cons: Mechanical failures flights canceled had to rebook the next day!
Pros: The flight was on time and the crew was great. No complaints for the air and the ground team at all
Cons: WiFi and TV it's way too expensive No free options to entertain yourself. At least give us a USB port on the seat to access my mobile device. Very narrow seats
Pros: I had left my laptop at security and the woman at the on board desk (wish i knew her name) changed my flight to go on a later flight to West Palm Beach instead so I could get my laptop and continue on my way to Florida. She didn't even charge me anything extra! The West Palm Flight wasn't full and I was able to get closer to my destination going to West Palm Florida. The flight was smooth and the snacks were great too!
Pros: Pleasant crew.
Cons: Tight space between seats. Quite uncomfortable.
Pros: Crew was awesome.
Cons: NO entertainment whatsoever unless you purchased it, $5 is expensive
Pros: Seat reclined!! New clean plane, free movies and shows on my iPad and not the cheesy movies no one has heard of, really modern new A list movies!
Cons: Nothing at all
Pros: I could get my boarding pass, I could flight home have to buy different ticket too fight home??? I wish your return my money
Pros: Free movies and wifi
Cons: Plane was not cleaned properly. And it was restroom smell all over the mane during the boarding
Cons: This flight had a TV for each seat. However, you had to pay $5.99 to watch basic cable.
Pros: The nonstop overnight flight was very good. We will for sure choose that again. Much better then daytime with stops
Cons: We didn't use food or entertainment, but rating option didn't give that, so it wasn't bad just not used
Cons: Seats, space horrid like every other airline out there! American Corporate Greed at work, stuff them like sardines
Pros: Crew was great, and apologetic for the takeoff delay in a red eye flight.
Cons: the aisle seats on the plane had a narrower underseat space that my little boxy carryon wouldn't fit into--and it usually fits under any underseat storage...Luckily the passenger in the middle was willing to swap places.
Cons: Seats are way too close....
