Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"

Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."
Cons: "My family and I make I JFK -LAX reservation 4 months ago. We came to LAX three hours before our flight to make sure we get good seats. At the checking kiosk we did not have the option to pick seats , there was a message on the boarding pass that said to go see boarding agent. So we did, appreantly they over booked the trip and they were looking for volunteers to give up their seats!! Why did we have to be on stand by if our booking was confirmed 4 months ago!! They made us wait until the gate was closed and then they found us seats . This trip caused us mental anguish I will never fly American Airlines again"
Pros: "The associates at the terminal, who faced long delays and concerned and frustrated customers were patient and gracious. Following prescribed procedures they made announcements, apologized and provided snacks for the long delay."
Cons: "Having to wait for an extended time in the terminal. Delays turned my 10 hour journey into 24 hours."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Great crew today. As I was walking to the gate, one of the flight attendants that would be working this flight advised someone that was hurrying through the airport that they dropped something. While others may not have noticed or said something, she went out of her way to make sure the item got to its owner. It is little things like this that make life a little better."
Cons: "The thirty minute wait for luggage (which sometimes is quick for American at DFW)."
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."
Pros: "Crew on flight to Charleston was nice"
Cons: "I was supposed to make the trip from BNA to CHS at 2:30, we were delayed over 1.5 hours, making me miss this flight by 5 mins. Then I was put on 10pm flight which was cancelled! They couldn't get me to HHH until 6pm the following day. I would have missed my entire conference. The closest they could get me was a 10pm flight to charleston, then I had to rent (AND PAY FOR) a car and drive 2 hours to HHH in the middle of the night. The customer service people were less than helpful. They aren't allowed to help you make car reservation. My flight on the way back from HHH to BNA was a similar story. Thankfully my connecting flight was delayed an hour or there was no way I would have made it."
Pros: "The single flight attendant was very friendly and down to earth, and was keen to share her experience with us."
Cons: "De Havilland Dash-8's can be a bit noisy, and they seem to be the only planes they fly into Hilton Head. However, that isn't to say you're unable to get sleep on them, because my partner and I both slept the entire flight- the vibrations are only slightly disconcerting. Departure was about 15 minutes late out of Charlotte."
Cons: "The flight never happened. Our outgoing flight from HHI to Charlotte was delayed until it was eventually canceled with no reason given and we were rerouted through Savannah, an hour away with no notification and so the return flight had to be changed too because our car was in Savannah"
Cons: "No entertainment, screaming children and no food"
Cons: "Bhm flight delayed . Threw everything else off"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful on the plain. There was a bit more room on the next flight than the one from Dayton to Charlotte"
Cons: "The isle was way too narrow People were bumping into me as they went down the isle and I had to carry my cane and carry on bag . I could not understand to pilot when he spoke at all."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of weather, which is understandable. The way your staff handled this in both Atlanta and Philly was totally unacceptable. No one knew what to do. I missed my connecting flight to Rome, Italy. I got a good deal on the tickets but in the future I will stick with Delta."
Cons: "this was the first time a I have traveled to the US and I was stranded at the Louisville airport after the flight diverted due to bad weather. I was offered no alternative transportation to Indianapolis. I was totally lost being in a strange city without support. finally I had to take a taxi which was very expensive"
Cons: "Had another problem with the plane, this was the cargo door and after waiting forever, that was fixed and then they had to refuel, I was an hour and a half late getting to my destination and they kept telling us just a few more minutes."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Cons: "Told I would need to check my bag at the gate, only to find plenty of overhead bin space once all passengers boarded"
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "None at this time."
Cons: "Make sure you bring your own device for entertainment"
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
Pros: "On time, rare for a full flight."
Cons: "A little quicker on the baggage upon arrival would have been nice."
Pros: "I am Premier Silver on United, so boarding was easy and the flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "When I purchased this ticket on Kayak, it was advertised as "Economy" and confirmation was also "Economy" however, United Airlines only recognized as "Basic Economy". This prevented me from using my free upgrade to Economy Plus. It also prevented me from selecting my seat and I got a seat I didn'"
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Pros: "On time & courteous. & On board service was excellent"
Pros: "I enjoyed preferred boarding it made everything easy. Seats were fine as far as leg room."
Cons: "Attendant kept bumping into me, I had an aisle seat with her refreshment cart. But other then that everything was fine."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, but was not notified of delay. Also, our gate was changed three times."
Pros: "Once the plane boarded it was a smooth flight."
Cons: "The airline said that it needed to take on additional fuel due to bad weather, which would make the plane overweight. This meant that nearly half of the passengers who bought tickets would not be able to fly. Thos made boarding stressful as they were randomly calling names. They were offering $2000 and a hotel and meals and a flight out the next morning. However I did not have flexible travel plans and the stress of hoping to be allowed to board was unpleasant."
Pros: "Without a doubt, I will continue to fly United exclusively."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Helpful gate staff"
Cons: "Frozen croissant for breakfast. Non-functioning entertainment centre. Seats recline too much. Passenger in front leant back as far as he could (without courtesy of request or apology), making my flight most uncomfortable."
Cons: "They should board the plane from the back to front, it just makes sense to do it this way, less people out if place and it would board faster"
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Pros: "I was able to get an aisle seat"
Cons: "The pain in my ears"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Pros: "Ran out of food so we had no food for a 5 hour flight Las airport is a nightmare; so much walking involved. For seniors ask for assistance"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Don't remember. Was asleep"
Cons: "Stuck in the runway and the heat was unbearableStewardess"
Pros: "Food was ok - but served way too hot. Crew was pleasant and the entertainment was a decent selection."
Cons: "When we arrived, we were told we weren't actually taking Austrian airlines and should have been on united - which was at a different terminal. Then checking in was a disaster - neither the Austrian app or united app would allow me to checkin. Then the seats we had selected initially weren't given to us at checkin so we had to upgrade our seats to sit together. And then, in our more expensive seats - we froze. We were underneath the AC and the crew said they had no extra blankets."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Pros: "Cold in hallway for manditory carry on check & anxious that I may not make next flight, . Newark to Ft. Myers"
Pros: "Everything was great! :)"
Cons: "As I am sure you already know and probably have heard many times, those seats sure are narrow! :("
Pros: "Friendly few, clean plane, and on time"
Cons: "It was way too hot on the plane. I understand it's hard to find a happy medium with people on temperature but this flight was too warm, especially with people traveling with winter wear on."
Cons: "THIS FLIGHT WAS VERY DUSTY AND DIRTY ALONG THE WINDOW SEATS. It looked like no one had dusted in a very long time."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Pros: "The customer service. They are so polit."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Even though I was on business class, I could not use the lounge at United . They said Luftansa do not pay pay for local connections."
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Pros: "Professional airline. Comfortable seating. On time. Most impressive airline I've flown with in a very long time."
Pros: "Everyone was kind and on time"
Cons: "The plane was late, filled to capacity, and I spent over 4 hours getting bumped on both elbows. The temperature of the aircraft was about one degree below sweltering."
Pros: "I liked the free entertainment I could watch on my iPad."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour going to NYC and were delayed 3.5 hours going back to Chicago. Terrible and exhausting."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "The flight was short so no entertainment was needed. After the nightmarish flight I had just endured it felt like first class accommodations."
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
Pros: "Overall, I was satisfied with my flight experience. There were no delays and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "I had the same sad flight attendant on both flights that I had that day. Her name was Brittany. She didn't smile or seem at all content to be alive. It was awkward. Also, wish we had wifi."
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."
Pros: "Tight seating funky food"
Cons: "I was told I had a confirmed seat after a cancelled flight and showed up the next day to find out it was given to someone else. No help was giving took us three hours to finally get help"
