Horrible delay due to weather.
San Francisco worst airport I've ever been in to navigate. Almost missed my connection trying to figure out which gate I needed and how to get to it.
Issues with luggage, gate agents and flight. Delta has really gone down hill. But the flight agents int he sky were kind and professional. Also enjoyed the entertainment--but shouldn't be charged for headphones.
The landing was incredibly rough. I thought we were going to roll over at one point. Even coming into the landing was incredibly rocky. The passenger beside me said they make that flight all the time and that was the hardest landing they ever experienced.
Cons: "The check in process for Delta was a chaotic mess. There was no one to assist passengers, lines were crazy long. I overheard so many people complaining about missing flights and they could not get any help. I also think the amount Delta charges for luggage was insane."
Pros: "Not one of my good experiences with Delta. Two hours delay in the flight"
Cons: "Information on the flight delay as communication was. at least very poor. Also A 220 was ok but First Class was so so"
Cons: "I requested a seat with extra legroom due to a medical condition over a month before the flight. I was not granted my request and was in pain for most of the flight."
Cons: "They sent my luggage to a completely different state! Now I have to wait till it gets to LGA and then they’ll send it to me."
Pros: "There were a few hiccups with the overall flight process, but the crew was very friendly and informed everyone in a timely manner of the situation. There were also good snacks. Also, flexible baggage policy, which was great."
Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Pros: "Got to Houston on time"
Cons: "WiFi that I paid for on Delta didn't work, flight was delayed at take off due to waiting for restroom supplies; lead flight attendant had a major accent and was difficult to understand. She also stated to keep my mother's walker outside the plane when entering the plane"
Cons: "Wifi was not working"
Pros: "I missed my flight and you guys helped me catch the next one :D I was able to still make it yo my final destination within the same day"
Pros: "Delta in flight entertainment is great."
Cons: "Always delayed."
Cons: "Old plane, long delay, sketchy WiFi."
Pros: "Excellent hospitality I asked for a cup of coffee at an odd time, the attendant went out of his way to brew fresh pot and served me, instead of just saying "Sorry sir, we don't have any coffee at this time....""
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: "It was water or water no soft drinks"
Cons: "Only water"
Pros: "Economy Comfort, excellent in-flight entertainment (Movies)"
Cons: "Food was rather marginal (really no surprise, it's airplane food), tried unsuccessfully to hook-up to in-flight Wifi (couldn't get it to work throughout the flight)"
Pros: "Friendliness of flight attendants"
Cons: "I wasn't awake long enough to find fault"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The Delta team in Houston was not very pleasant."
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Pros: "I like flight comfort in air"
Cons: "Crew member were rude and pilot feels like never fly plane before , he landed in high speed and our plane jumped back in air , two passengers almost had heart attack ! We’re taken out on medical bases"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."
Cons: "Small seater aircraft was cramped"
Pros: "They offered some snacks"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that they had no backup pilots for the plane. We waited 12 hours!!!!!! For a flight"
Cons: "I couldn’t watch a movie and I couldn’t fall asleep because the the person in front of me had a light on."
Cons: "The boarding process is quite confusing with all the different categories of people prior to the actual listed "zone" boarding. As an example, if you have a "Zone 2" boarding pass, you think you will be second to board when in reality that means you are second to last to board. After those who need extra time, those with small children, active military, premier, whatever.... all that covers about 2/3 of the passengers. Then of course there's all the stepping over those who already boarded which seems to slow the process overall. It would be better to ask these questions when making your reservation. Then, the zones would be appropriate based on how you made your reservation to begin with."
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Pros: "On time, professional boarding, clean comfortable planes, skilled pilots and professional crew. What more could you ask for."
Cons: "All good."
Cons: "Ice in the morning in Atlanta and Delta cancels my 6pm flight to Atlanta leaving me no flight home that night."
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."
Cons: "Everything was great today."
Pros: "Got upgraded to 1st / Business class."
Cons: "Due to weather the power outage in ATL, the flight out of PHL was delayed by about 30 minutes. No movies. No meals."
Pros: "ditto above"
Cons: "ditto above"
Cons: "There is just not enough leg room for a flight that long and the seats don't recline enough to be comfortable unless you upgrade and the tickets were already overpriced."
Cons: "no food for Vegans. Like literally nothing besides a confused crew"
Pros: "Could not use the bathroom"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "Late taking off, and then unable to get to gate on arrival"
Pros: "Friendly crew, ok seats"
Cons: "Was not possible to even request a coffee"
Pros: "The good the crew and the bed"
Cons: "The overheads were noisey and loud and made it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Every thing except food!"
Cons: "Not enough food provided by airline!"
Pros: "Amazing crew and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food, movies"
Pros: "The price for flight was great. Layover was perfectly timed and didn’t have to wait long before boarding."
Cons: "Crew was rude. The premium plus cabin was not worth the extra cost. No real change in service just a little more room."
Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "Food is not great. Seats are not every comfortable for a 10 hour flight. Need better cushions."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very professional and organized. Plane was clean and seats comfortable."
Cons: "No seat entertainment."
Cons: "Dang the seats are just small in the coach area. Great smooth flight and my bag arrived where it was supposed to be. Cant complain there"
Pros: "Crew was accommodating."
Cons: "Not being stuck in Houston for 7 hours"
Cons: "The fact that United forces basic economy customers to check carry-on luggage is nothing but a cash grab. Some of the overhead compartments were completely empty yet they force you to pay ?30/ bag. They also gouge you an extra $25 per bag if you bring your carry on to the gate."
Pros: "The 787 was spacious."
Cons: "Plane was delayed on takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled for no reason making us lose 1 day of vacation. The airline didn’t even bother to contact us."
Pros: "The Rio de Janeiro international airport is very difficult to traverse. However, the airport staff was very helpful in directing me several times to the correct location."
Cons: "United needs a check-in kiosk located between the domestic arrivals section and the international connection hallway just before security. I had to walk to the complete length of the airport and back again, just to check-in. Other airlines, such as Delta, have a kiosk located just before the security entrance. The cabin temperature was absolutely freezing during the flight, and I am usually hot."
Pros: "Entertainment variety and selection. Food and Drink. Had the curry chicken, surprisingly good."
Cons: "Not enough food & drink service. On an 11 hour flight went 4 hours without a visit from food/drink cart. On the flight from Houston to Munich the food was lousy but we got several more visits/opportunities for drinks."
Cons: "Since the flight was an international connection I had to retrieve my luggage and then drop it for the next flight. United Airlines did not build in enough time between the flights for the time it took their baggage handlers to send up our luggage. They need a much better system with the baggage delivery. I had to run to make my flight because their baggage handlers took so much time."
Pros: "Crew board and also on plane were accommodating and very friendly."
Cons: "Three people in row and all over 200lbs it felt like ever time to get seatbelt Or the horrible placed outlets between seats but under seat and you can not look under seat cause no space in front of you to access and can’t help but to rub against person in next too you. So had to apologize and explain what was trying to do before I tried. I try not to fly this airline or other large carries for"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled on our way back home from Gudalajara, was speaking to a representative for almost 2 hours to get me on the next flight the flight representative forgot to put me on hold and told everyone how rude i was, i was not rude i was just trying to get home. The representative couldn’t help me so i asked to be transferred to a manager, after 2 hours i was transferred and the manager hung the phone up. Long story short i called back spoke to another manager Yana and she was the rudest lady ever! She basically told me for waiting to long i will have to be placed on a flight 2 days after my cancellation flight. I started to cry because i needed to be home and she basically did not care so i took the date. Never again and i will warn everyone about this airline and their customer service!"
Cons: "There was a name change needed for the flight..they weren’t able to support that at all resulting me cancelling the flight."
Pros: "The marvel of flying. Hurling through the air in a metal tubeZ amazing. We got there safe and on time. That’s what I liked about United. Oh and there was a CSR that was helpful in changing to an earlier flight."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Bathroom disgusting. Crew just trying to get through the work day. Seats too close and REAL uncomfortable. Like sitting on a plastic frame with a piece of fake leather over it. Entertainment was awful. Oh wait, non existent since it was an “out of country” flight so there was no access to movies (that you had to PAY for). Otherwise you got to watch Matthew Perry in some taxi game show over and over and over and over on a monitor in your face that couldn’t be shut off. United is my last choice in airlines. But we did get to the destination safe and on time."
Cons: "The flight coming in was late and caused my connections to change. I am not able to arrive in Eugene until AT LEAST 5 hours later then first scheduled."
Cons: "I really hate that the major airline companies are charging for every little thing now. I shouldn't have to pay extra for entertainment & an outlet on a 2+ hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful!"
Cons: "Not enough options for people with celiac."
Cons: "taxi time longer than fly time"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "Felt cramped and"
Pros: "Boarding was fine, no delays. Crew was nice, no complaints there! I had an empty seat next to me, so could stretch out. Luckily I brought a blanket with me, since I know from previous experience it's always too cold on planes."
Cons: "The entertainment didn't work on my iPad or my iPhone. I kept getting an error. Also, the WIFI is way too expensive."
Cons: "No beverage offered during the entire flight. Plane was on the runway for about 40 min prior to take-off. What a waste of time!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled because of the hurricane in Houston which was completely understandable. Trying to rebook a flight was one of the worst experiences I've had on the phone. Over 2 hours on hold only for United to tell me to call back inside 24 hours of my requested departure (which was about 12 hours outside of the time I called). Bad customer service all around, both Kayak and United."
Cons: "We booked what was labeled a Lufthansa flight and paid extra because we had flown Lufthansa before and thought the service and the flight were excellent. Imagine our surprise when we found out it was a United Flight. We were on the plane for almost 11 hours and we just had a small lunch and a snack that was tiny. We were starving when we got off. Next time, British Airways gets my money. I want to know what airline I am paying for all the way through without the switching shenanigans."
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Pros: "We got there on time!"
Cons: "In flight entertainment worked fine at first but then, halfway through my movie, it just kept stopping and trying to buffer. I tried to reboot my device, reset internet connections, restart the app, but nothing worked. Even though I had 40 minutes left in the movie and 90 minutes left on my flight, I couldn't finish the movie."
Pros: "Ease and Comfort. Each terminal in our two-leg journey was modern, immaculate and simple to navigate. The flight and crew were outstanding; attentive and professional. Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "We just couldn't justify paying 16.00 so each of us could watch TV for two hours. We would have appreciated basic TV, in order for us to stay on top of the National/World news. We feel it is part of our best interest, as a country and world, to keep informed. Please allow for at least BBC to be viewed. For Free. Thank You."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "It took pass our departure time to get people onto the plane, the plane was super delayed 8:25 turned into a little over 10, and I was super uncomfortable the whole flight. Spent the majority of my day in the airport just waiting on this flight."
Pros: "Direct flight to Houston"
Cons: "Staff boarding did not care travelled with my diabetic mom going home to Houston they could not be bothered to seat us together response was " ash your fellow passengers to swap with you" how aweful"
Cons: "I was told that a transport would be available upon landing, it was only there for first class patrons. We landed 20 minutes late due to maintenance issues and I missed my flight by five minutes. I feel that united could have expedited my departure from the plane."
Pros: "Missed my flight so I ended up staying overnight in the airport to catch the 5:25 am flight the next morning. One of the cleaning staff found a blanket for me which really helped since it was incredible cold in the airport."
Cons: "Security line at BWI is extremely long and under staffed compared to other airports. There was not enough legroom and the flight attendants pressured people to check baggage when there was plenty of room on the flight to stow luggage."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the pilot had some sort of Sean Connary accent that made it interesting:)"
Cons: "3 seats instead of 2 on either side"
Pros: "The crew were helpful and did their best to manage delays."
Cons: "United is has delayed my flight on 3 out of the last four trips. 40 minutes, 1 hour, and 2.5 hours."
Pros: "Both flights left on time and arrived at least 20 minutes early. My bag arrived at the baggage claim ten minutes after I arrived, and all went very well. I'm grateful."
Cons: "All was perfect"
Pros: "Flight was on-time with departure and arrival."
Cons: "The air fare was way over priced."
Cons: "TINY seats! I'm 5'11 and I had a hard time being comfortable and I find it incredibly unfair to have to now pay more for the exit row??? The person in front kicks back their seat and suddenly the TV screen on the back of the seat is in my lap"
Cons: "I was put on wrong flight and arrived 4 hours after scheduled landing."
Pros: "The crew members during boarding were sensitive and very urgent in the process."
Cons: "The only delayed flights were the ones fron United, all the other airlines were on time. The attendant was stubborn and made comments not appreciated I lost my connecting flight in Houston and had to stay 8 hour in the airport until 6M Horrible experience"
Cons: "I received somewhat bad service at every point of contact with United. My flight was canceled in Houston, so I forced to stay overnight. I asked the rep at the customer service station if United pays for a hotel room if our flight gets canceled, I was told no. There were several canceled flights, do all the hotels were booked in the area. It was up to me to call every hotel in a 10 mile radius at midnight to find a room. I had to come out of pocket 150 dollars for the room and I missed work the following day due to my canceled flight. I was forced to stay in a hotel room with none of my clean clothes, no toiletries. I was told by a united rep, "we get off at midnight so you won't be able to get your suitcase today". All in all, it was one of the worst flying experiences I have ever had. I would like some one to call or email me."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "I landed at Houston at 2am and there was no food options open or comfortable sleeping locations fo Try to rest"
Pros: "Row 10, extra couple of inches is far more civilized."
Cons: "Didn't have the United app downloaded in time, so couldn't use the WiFi. No alternative."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
Cons: "Did not like the delay that happened and we arrived 2 hours later. I was suppose to arrive 10:30 and I arrived 12:30. I wasn't able to go to work for that reason."
Cons: "This flight was also delayed. It was bade enough the first flight was delayed almost an hour, but this flight also left late from the gate."
Cons: "We were suppose to depart around 7:20pm and ended up departing at 10pm. Was said they magically had 4 brocken seats over the past flight! Did not like the waiting period and how they managed it."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight"
