Comfort+ on delta was excellent room for a 6’4” male. No one issues. Staff was great. Flight was bumpy but the pilot did everything he could to make it comfortable. Internet went out half way through the flight. I am glad I didn’t pay for it. But that was a huge issue for users.

A220 brakes are grabby and uncomfortable Electric braking is not a good solution for a modern aircraft

Cons: "There was a dog barking the entire time that disturbed everyone."
Pros: "Seating lacked the ability to recline in any way. There were no snacks or drinks whatsoever"

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: "Overall Service!!!!"
Cons: "People Should Use The Overhead Bins Next To Their Seats, "Not Someone Else's", Thank You Very Much"
Pros: "See Below.. Inflight WiFi Entertainment Options"

Pros: "wonderfu crew... very helpul`"

Pros: "The crew was organized and made us all laugh, and had a great personality."
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average."

Cons: "Haven't left yet!!!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight left on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The flight was rough. The coffee was horrible though."
Pros: "Tons of free entertainment on the screen in front of your seat! Movies, games, and details on your flight, all available on your touch screen. USB charging is also available."
Cons: "No one told us they wanted everyone with a roller carry-on to.check their bags. An attendant told my sister that her bag needed to be checked. We did not receive this notification until we were at the gate, boarding."
Pros: "Crew very cheerful and friendly"
Cons: "Still don’t know why I’m always zone 3. Also, need to stop people in main cabin from putting seats back. Either everyone would need to be like dominoes or basically they are just getting rid of what little space there is."
Pros: "The most humorous and professional flight attendants that I can remember on any flight. The ladies were friendly and efficient, but th male attendants were the same, but quite humorous! And at ten o'clock at night, after a long day, that made the flight relaxing and "fun.""
Cons: "Nothing, great ride!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarded quickly and efficiently. Staff were nice enough but all business."
Cons: "The seats are very small even for a petite person."
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: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Pros: "Comfortable temperature in cabin!"
Pros: "Attention to detail, truly caring for the passengers and a nice smile."
Cons: "Everything was first class and there was nothing that was actually decided that was not received."
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: "Good snacks and movie selection. Seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed flight, confusing boarding, and not the friendliest flight attendants"
Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."
Pros: "Clean, pretty roomy (Delta Comfort)"
Cons: "Couldn't get onto internet. Both my wife and I could not access internet. Might be platform thing as we have Apple devices; woman next to us seemed to have nomorobkem with PC."
Cons: "Not a fan of the distance between our arrival gate in ATL and connecting flight to BUF. Couldn't be helped, I suppose."
Cons: "The quality of customer service and efficiency was lacking at the check in counter. Wrong information was given to many passengers as far as checking in baggage and being sent to several line ques for the agent to tell me in the end that I was told the information incorrectly since the beginning. I therefore was unable to board my flight on time, got switched to a new flight and the new flight was delayed for 3.5 hours."

Everything went smoothly and even though flights were being canceled all over mine took off and I was home for Christmas! We had a slight delay but crew made it out quickly. Seats are slightly uncomfortable but it’s what ya get Overall great flight

Pros: "Well I like the that I was allowed to pre board because I had a 1 year old with me."
Cons: "My one year old was a lap baby. There was virtually no space between the front seat and mine. This made flying very uncomfortable for both me and my daughter."
Cons: "If the airlines was able to help finding my pierce that was missed at the security or the craft"
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. 1.5 hrs was barely enough to get through baggage claim, customs, baggage recheck, customs again, subway ride to Denver United terminal and sprint 30 gates only to make it 1 minute before the gate closed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so I missed my connection, spending 6 hours in the Houston airport"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and very helpful and kind. The flight was delayed but the crew was positive and boarding was very fast and efficient."
Cons: "The morning snack had egg and I am allergic to egg so I could not eat it. There was no non-dairy creamer for my coffee."
Pros: "Confortable seating and updated seats. Attentive flight attendants Power in every seats"
Cons: "No IFE , snack for purchase"
Pros: "You expect to get Taj qualify Indian meals when you fly business. My 80 year old mom and I were starving cause we could not eat what they were serving us."
Cons: "You expect to get Taj qualify Indian meals when you fly business. My 80 year old mom and I were starving cause we could not eat what they were serving us."
Cons: "Like so many others, my flight was delayed. This was due to the scheduled pilot calling in."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There was absolutlely no food. Not eve a bag of peanuts."
Cons: "It was three hour deley in Newark Airport because the plain didn't arrive on time."
Cons: "United once again shows it’s disdain for customer service and any sort of quality in their product. I don’t think I’ve had flight attendants who were less caring of providing anything more than what David Spade and Chris Farley provided in Black Sheep - “show em an instructional video and throw a bag of peanuts at em and we’ll be there in no time”. United is quickly becoming the - even more so underwhelming - Greyhound of the skies"
Pros: "We had turbulence at about 37,000 feet so the pilot took the plane up to about 39,000 feet so that made the flight smoother. We arrived 16 minutes early"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Um......30 minutes early to destination"
Cons: "Plane had food and crumbs all over the floor, seats had horrible leg room ( I am 6'5")"
Pros: "The plane was run by ANA. It was super clean, the food was good and the attendants were great."
Cons: "It was the best economy flight I have ever had. Super."
Pros: "Due to a knee injury, I needed more personal assistance, the custermer service & attention I received was EXCELLENT - from being expedited through the check in, special luggage assistance, special seat selection, wheelchair assistance throughout the security & boarding process to the professionalism by ALL the crew after being diverted to Iceland for a medical emergency of a fellow passenger."
Cons: "Because of the medical emergency & being diverted to Iceland, the flight time was extended by close to 4 1/2 hrs. The snacks/"food" provided were definitely insufficient."
Pros: "It was a smooth, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was late and caused a lot of stress and missed layovers. One of the crew members had a bad attitude when I offered to let my bags continue on the flight without me (I originally opted to deplane and stay in Detroit). I was only trying to be helpful and got my head bit off... I get It. It was a stressful situation, but the crew doesn’t need to add insult to injury. They’re getting paid hourly whether flights are on time or not. It’s the passengers who have a right to be anxious."
Cons: "Waiting"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was charged twice for my ticket"
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Arrived 1 hour early!!"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "As a result of extensive business travel, my husband and I enjoy premiere status with United . We love the airline, because even when we buy inexpensive tickets on our own dime for family travel, we are treated exceptionally well and often upgraded. The flight was on time, the ground and cabin crew friendly and the captain competent. That works for us!"
Pros: "Complimentary drinks"
Cons: "Boarding was long"
Cons: "We boarded the plane late, sat on the plane for almost two hours before taking off (because of maintenance issues) and then waited to get to our gate upon landing. This happens to me almost every time I fly United."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Pros: "The Captain kept us apprised of the delays in our flight."
Cons: "How the Denver airport has their gates set up for 77/78/79 and others, having to walk down stairs? then down a long hallway to go out on the tarmac to board the plane, then when having to deplane, repeat what we had just done in reverse, some customers were traveling with small children/babies, no offer to help these people were made, except to tell them they could use the elevator. Thought it was ridiculous that we had to go all the way to original gate when we were told we would be loading again on the gate next to the one we just came in from."
Cons: "Speed of boarding, no hassle with carry on bags"
Pros: "Flight and experience were great."
Cons: "I would expect when I book a Luftansa flight to fly in a Luftansa jet. This flight was carried by United and I did not know that until I arrived at the airport."
Pros: "On time and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Iad to Boston on board attendants"
Cons: "Flight timing excellent"
Pros: "The plane was only half full -- plenty of room!"
Cons: "Turbulence (not your fault)."
Pros: "The person sitting next to me...that were pleasant."
Cons: "That when I explained being hearing impaired the boarding attendant said my carry on needed to be checked. I didn't understand her and proceeded to the loading blank. Then when boarding the attendant informed me. I explained I checked my bag in the airport compartment tester and it was fine. I also asked the attendant at the counter. She confirmed it was fine. Still smiling until the snack pretzels were passed out. When I didn't hear the attendant's question, in spite of telling her I was hearing impaired, she threw her hand up rudely and just continued on to other customers. When boarding I watched orhers board with the same size bag as mine, and wondered if telling someone you can't hear gives them the right to inform you at the gate that your bag needs to be checked?"
Pros: "Food was decent, service as efficient albeit not very courteous. But one has come to expect that of UAL and hence the reduced flights I've taken in the last year."
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable for a flatbed. Seemed to have a gap that needed a pillow to fill. Seat wasn't completely clean when I boarded. Used water bottles in the seat pocket. Toilet was unclean before the flight even took off. At check in they didn't specify the lounge to be used. Unclear instruction regarding the availability of a separate business security line."
Pros: "Nothing to like. 6:00pm flight delayed and kept rescheduling takeoff. Boarded plane about midnight and after ninety plus minutes we were made to deplane because current crew was over their allotted airtime. Kept on plane awaiting a new crew but they couldn't get them so flight cancelled. Attendants told us we would be compensated for cancellation. A big airline like united should have a better grasp on scheduling flight crews and stand bys available instead of putting us through this hell. No hotels available so we all had to stay overnight in uncomfortable chairs with many sleeping on floors. I felt bad for myself as a 69 ur old woman with some health issues but felt even worse for the parents flying with little toddlers who just wanted to go home. The day of my flight Denver had 8" of snow that stopped by 9am yet I couldn't get a flight out till the following evening. Psp to Denver to Newark should have taken six hours but took me over 38 hrs of travel time. Denver should be used to snow and 8" shouldn't cause such extreme disruption at that airport. And united needs to better coordinate its flight schedules and working crews. I will be contacting customer service regarding compensation as cancelled flight was due to company musmagent. Finally it would have been nice if united opened its club to the travelers who couldn't get hotels. Sitting in a comfortable place would have been so much better especially to the elderly and small children traveling. Thank you"
Pros: "The free entertainment"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "Good crew on both legs of my flight. Airbus from LAX to Chicago was a bit tight, but Chicago to Norfolk was pretty comfortable (different plane). . The SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT thing about this.....and any other flight.....is leaving your place or origin and arriving at your destination SAFELY and without incident. For this, I'm always happy for an uneventful flight. Thanks United."
Cons: "You DO have to have the United app to watch any entertainment. This is kind of a downer. If you have WiFi on a plane, why limit it to just ONE app? Standard snacks and drinks so nothing special there"
Pros: "Great fly very attenty personal"
Cons: "It took forever to board!"
Pros: "Clean flight, boarding went smoothly, everything on time."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "I got all my steps I while waited. Was rebooked on an American airplane for my connection on Chicago"
Cons: "Over a 3 hr delay in leaving Flont"
Pros: "All luggage had to go in the belly of the plane. Made boarding way faster. Clean aircraft with pretty comfortable seats."
Cons: "Booked a seat and paid for it then got moved without any notice."
Cons: "On a redeye, comfort is imperative. The seats only reclined 10 degrees, if that, and the seat pockets were a thin mesh strip 10" across, rendering them completely useless."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it, they will overturn a half hours late, with the excuse "waiting for aircraft"... My first flight was delayed for over four hours, I had to sleep in the airport, terrible company to do business with… Will tell everyone not to use United ever again"
Cons: "Flight worth almost 3 hours late, there was really no reason to be late, they texted at 5:00 in the morning saying the flight was already two hours late on the flight wasn't supposed to be until 5:40 PM. Bad planning, seems very disregarding to people's travel plan, and careless about the whole situation. I would expect at least some courtesy food or the offering of airlines miles points for the late flight. Selfish!"
Cons: "We rushed skipping a planned meal during our expected layover to the second leg of our journey only to sit waiting for the second delayed flight. The delay included a prolonged wait of about 20 minutes on the tarmac AFTER departing from the gate. During the accelerated dash to LAX, the flight attendants didn't have time to serve beverages to the entire cabin. Less then half of the cabin were served leaving the rest of the parched passengers unserved including myself and my companion. The flight attendants were good doing the best they could under the circumstances. As with the first leg of the flight, I couldn't figure out the entertainment system and couldn't download the entertainment app from the Apple app store (I couldn't get the store to open on the onboard wireless system to download the app)."
Cons: "Because of delayed flight I missed this connection flight,"
Pros: "we were 10 minutes early to the gate"
Cons: "super cramped quarters, like touching legs to the next person the whole squirmy flight close... the plane was made for little people."
