Pros: "Blocking middle seats was a critical requirement. Otherwise, we wouldn't have flown."
Pros: "The crew did a great job taking care of everything in the new Covid environment."
Cons: "The only real complaint (not Covid related) I have is that it is almost impossible to understand what announcements are being made from the cockpit - I don't know if it's the person speaking or the audio system itself. I was near the front - row 10 or so - and only understood about 10% of the words. I heard others mention that as well."

Pros: "I appreciate the culture at Southwest, and the casual, comfortable way people speak on the staff teams."
Cons: "We were very delayed, changed gates, then further delayed again twice.. the food was a choice between wheat crackers and pretzels made from white flour, neither of which I can eat, being gluten free. Would like better options for snacks and would gladly pay a buck or two for fresh fruit or some other clever gluten free option. Popcorn? Potato chips?"
Pros: "Delayed flight, sitting on tarmac for 59 minutes and then at airport for another flight for 3 hrs"
Pros: "Love the way SW does things, and the flight was relaxing in a way other low-cost carriers have never provided for me."
Cons: "Nothing was bad, I just didn’t use the “entertainment”"
Pros: "Met a wonderful young man on the flight which helped distract us from the bumpy ride. Southwest is an excellent airline to travel on. Have always had a great experience flying on their planes."
Cons: "Snacks could be improved upon."
Pros: "Captain updated passengers on any turbulance coming"
Pros: "I don't know if it's because of the holidays but we were really surprised at the fact that about 15 people were allowed to preboard... that seemed to be a lot."

Cons: "Hard to connect to the internet"
Pros: "Wifi entertainment, drink selection, snack selection, great employees"

Pros: "Service is alway the best."
Pros: "As always the staff was great!"

Pros: "Crowded boarding area in SAN"
Pros: "I love flying two bags for free."
Cons: "The drinks were served at the last minute. I was just given my hot chocolate and then they announced that they know some of us just got our drinks, but they have to throw them away because we're going to prepare to land. It is not my fault they didn't time their service properly. I tried to drink what I could, but it was too hot to drink it quickly so I was only able to take a few sips before the stewardess extended her hand to me so she could throw it away. If only they knew my favorite part of flying SW, once on the plane, is that they serve free hot chocolate and I love it. I always look forward to it. On the last flight, the stewardess spilled it on me so I didn't get to drink it. Boo. Two flight experiences ruined."
Pros: "Amazing customer service on our second flight - the Houston based flight crew were incredibly empathetic, positive, and friendly. They exemplify the Southwest I know and love! $200 vouchers per person for the delays."
Pros: "Stewards were funny and cool, made us laugh and enjoy choosing southwest"
Cons: "Flight was too short, I needed to lap a little longer, just kidding"
Cons: "Delayed boarding but received notification from Kayak was good."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and comfortable. Crew was efficient and friendly. The whole experience was excellent!"
Cons: "There was lots of entertainment available but plain old music was not an option. What if I don't want to watch a movie or TV, just listen to music!"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the plane wasn’t over booked."
Cons: "I didn’t like that we took off an hour late."
Cons: "Two rows up from us, I kid threw up all over the center aisle as we were pulling away from the gate. We returned to the gate to allow a cleaning crew to board and clean. However, the cleaning job was rushed and left remnants of the throw up behind which smelled the whole 2.5 hour flight. It really felt unsanitary and unsafe being that it’s unknown what caused the child to get sick. It very well could have been a stomach virus and could have infected the people in rows around the incident due to the mediocre cleaning job. I understand that it’s important to keep flights on-time, especially for connecting flights, but the safety of the passengers and their health should ALWAYS be the #1 priority."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and professional and took time for a little personal conversation."
Cons: "Employees who just don't care"
Cons: "I missed the flight"
Pros: "Management as well as staff nice...First trip with Alaska and made my trip nice .. Got a good deal price too."

Pros: "- Crew was friendly as usual"
Cons: "- The plane was a bit older, so the seats were not as comfortable as most Alaska flights"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, crew communicated well, seats were comfortable, plane wasn't too hot or too cold"

Pros: "Everything but…"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and in-flight service was very good."
Cons: "Gogoinflight didn't work for at least the first 30 minutes of flight. I upgraded to first class, but there was no service until we were above 10,000 feet. I don't know if this was a one-time thing, or if other airlines are just better at accommodating first class."

Pros: "How friendly and professional"
Pros: "On time and effortless."
Pros: "Able to text ..."

Cons: "not able to know my seat till a day before flight ."
Pros: "Just fine. Staff was helpful and actually very kind crew (stewardess) I don't recall her name but middle aged blond. Very nice."
Cons: "Charis could have more room and there was bad turbulence but what can be done about that? we arrived safe and sound and that was good."
Cons: "very rough landing, delayed flight with little communication"
Pros: "Great service and very organized."
Pros: "The crew and captain were amazing and very apologetic!"
Cons: "I paid an extra $300 for preferred seating because I wanted the extra legroom to sleep. I'm over 6 feet so coach is very uncomfortable. My girlfriend and I got in our seats and 10 minutes later, a crew member walked back and asked us to get off the flight. We got off the flight and were met by police officer. Low and behold, the woman sitting next to us said that she believed we were intoxicated and feared for her safety. I am a police officer and my girlfriend is a nanny/preschool teacher. Not very threatening. The officer on the ground looked us over and asked us a few questions and determined we were not intoxicated and we were no threat to the other passengers. The airline asked us to get back on the flight and we would be sitting in coach because the woman adult children were now sitting in our seats. I told them to book us on another flight with the same seats that I PAID for or put us back in OUR seats on that same flight we just got kicked off of. We were escorted back onto the flight and the crew asked the woman's children to go back to their seats so we could have our seats back. They then asked us not to speak to the woman sitting next to us (which we never did to begin with!!!) and then told us we could have free food and drinks. The whole experience was insanely embarrassed and I can't believe that woman sitting next to us can get away with what she did. I am absolutely livid that they would ask us to get off the flight and then give our seats to the woman's ADULT children without vetting the situation and making the easy determination that we were NOT intoxicated. So embarrassing!!"
Pros: "Glad I discovered Alaska Airlines!"
Pros: "It got cancelled due to 3 inch of snow. And I missed work in Denver because of it. Very inconvenient"
Cons: "I would like to not have it cancel"
Pros: "Offering price"

Pros: "Promptness of flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Their staff was awesome as usual no issues with the flight ."
Cons: "So many bags that were suppose to go under the seat infront of you that weren't. So that those of us that boarded last had to wait while stewarts removed small carry ons. So that our one carry on that fit in the box but not under the seat could be stowed. It would be nice if the smalls bags that are to be stowed under the seat were. The family next to me had 9 bags in the over head. There were two adults and two children 3 and 4."
Pros: "Alaska airlines is absolutely wonderful. Friendly, happy and simple..."
Pros: "Roomy seats and plenty of legroom"
Cons: "The whole experience of making a connection in SEA detracts from the travel experience. There is little room for passengers to sit while waiting for their Alaska flight. It causes masses of people in the walkways, and makes it hard to walk through, or get out of the way for others. It may not be the airline's fault, but as I said, it detracted. I don't remember SEA being that overcrowded on previous trips. Our incoming flight was delayed due to weather. Again, not the airline's fault, but we were told we'd be able to make up the time and be on time in DEN. We were still late."
Pros: "Went very well. Not stupid"
Cons: "We were taken off the flight after boarding due to some ticketing issues with Emirates. The next flight was 3.5 hours later. This caused tremendously inconvenience, especially since we are both over 70 years old."
Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Pros: "My flight got delayed twice. Had to get rebooked."
Cons: "Four hour delay, rude gate agent, seat in front of me was broken making my already small space smaller, the plane smelled."
Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"
Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."
Pros: "Once boarding was over, flight and crew were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours. Better accommodations and notice would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"
Cons: "Faster lines at check-in. More courteous security personnel"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"
Cons: "Contacting me before rebooking would have saved me $400"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Cons: "There was huge issues with our original plane and the lady at the desk was horrible with communication to all the passengers waiting for the flight updates. The one time I finally asked her if there was any updates, after almost 1.5 hours of delay and waiting, she took a very rude and snappy tone."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "great flight attendant"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"
Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."
Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"
Cons: "wish the pods were a little longer for sleeping. it your 6'1 or taller you can't completely stretch out"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Cons: "No on board entertainment."
Pros: "Media access was great, flight was on time and flight crew was pleasant and helpful!"
Cons: "Space between seats/rows was really tight and I'm short. Would imagine for someone taller it would be really uncomfortable."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Cons: "There were extra seats to begin with and I was traveling alone with an infant. She barely slept the whole flight and I had a stuardis in a red dress who whem I asked for for a beverage made it seem like I asked for it right now. Didn't say a word Else to me until it was time to land and my daughter had just fell asleep. She told me. I had to take her out of the baby carrier. My daughter needed a diaper change and there were no places to change her. I tried to change her by the door really fast. The stuardis said no go change in a bathroom I asked which one had a changing station they said none and to just change in my lap. Plus my car seat was broke when I got it back."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Cons: "See above description"
Cons: "they downgraded me from first class to coach"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."
Pros: "Comfort with entertainment."
Cons: "No food options at all."
Pros: "The Crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, but due to no fault of Delta's...it was weather. Of course, the seats are very tight and this is something that Delta has control over."
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Pros: "I did not take the flight, I stopped in Miami instead."
Cons: "Don’t know because I did not take this flight."
Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"
Cons: "Flute gate changed 35 min prior to boarding to a new gate that was a 10 min walk. That was stressful. The flight ended up being delayed 20 min as well."
Pros: "Loved the individual monitors"
Pros: "seats were super comfortable, would fly again."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "More room in seat"
Pros: "Arrived 5 minutes early which was great on a very late night."
Cons: "Landing was rough."
Cons: "The flight is delayed for 5 hours without any compensation"
Pros: "Smooth ride and early arrival"
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."
Cons: "Great flight on time no issues"
Pros: "The staff was welcoming and it felt good!"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "The plane was a little too hot."
Cons: "Never happened. Had to be cancelled cause we missed our main flight."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment, and the excruciatingly long boarding process."
Pros: "Nice staff!"
Cons: "A bit bumpy!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Plane malfunction resulted in delay, and missed connection. Rebooked connection flight was canceled. Now in day 2 of eaitingto get home."
Cons: "We arrived in Amsterdam at 9am, after traveling two hours to get there. We found out right away that there was a delay and chances of missing the connecting flight from Philadelphia to Orlando were great. We requested a different booking to insure travel to Orlando, which was denied. So the connecting flight was missed and after hours arrived in Orlando at midnight. Missed my ride and all car rentals were booked. All this caused a lot of anxiety and unnecessary stress. Very disappointing. And to add to it, the flight itself was horrible and there was no entertainment available for the entire flight."
Pros: "Aircraft was cool"
Cons: "Small children"
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: "The fact that the lady at the counter was able to change our seats and put us all together."
Cons: "the movie screen being so far away"
Cons: "they broke my luggage"
Pros: "Comfort. We had a bulk head seat. Newer plane"
Cons: "No food offered . Not even for purchase."
Pros: "2 flight attendents reset the unit but to no avail."
Cons: "We could not resolve it."
Pros: "Great service and convenient flight."
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and are on time."
Cons: "Consuming and long baggage clai. No one man if baggage claim desk."
Cons: "Delay otherwise average"
Pros: "Touch screens on every seat was amazing! Made the flight go very fast! Wonderful movie selections."
Cons: "No decent snacks offered"
Pros: "Everything went smooth"
Cons: "Delayed flight, attendants were rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "When we finally got home."
Cons: "3 1/2 hour delay on tarmac for mechanical problem. Finally switched planes. Another 2 hours waiting to take off. They promised food but didn't provide. They almost forgot to reload everyone's luggage."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "The lack of organization at he moment of boarding generates problems with the passengers .. A lady started to get angry when group 3 was boarding and she was group 2. She was waiting were group 3 was in line .. It would be better to have it like united that they have lines for all groups."
Pros: "excellent. on time. smooth flight & easy check in"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Engaged with customers no matter the seat preference"
Cons: "Boarding system not good !"
Pros: "Affordable first class seat - very unusual for AA"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Boarded an hour late"
Pros: "Delayed for more than 2 hours. Nothing good to say. Only the crew and the capitain were nice"
Cons: "Delays. I hate delays. It is irresponsible and plays with people's time."
Cons: "The plane was old."
Pros: "All aspects of flight were perfect. Couldn't ask for anything more."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
Cons: "My son was flying on United from Colorado Springs to Denver, then on to Seattle for Thanksgiving. He rushed through as quickly as he could, but the door to the place was closing and it left 10 minutes early. United recorded him as a 'No Show', and there policy now is to cancel the entire ticket is you miss any segment of a round trip ticket. Thus, his entire $900 was forfeited, he couldn't even pay a change fee to catch a later flight. I hate American, and now I hate United just as much. These airlines shills have been allowed to go out of business when they last filled for bankruptcy. We fly in quite a few international airlines, and outside of Alaska, Jet Blue and Delta, maybe Southwest, US carriers are absolutely bottom of the barrel and it's clear that their employees don't care whatsoever. Will never book again in United or American. I'll try Amtrak before either of those carriers."
Cons: "I paid $100 for an upgrade on a United which turned out to be the first row, and right beside the rest room (which was erroneously showing as occupied for the first 20 minutes). The traffic made it feel like I was sitting on a bench in Grand Central Station. I chose an aisle seat but ended up mysteriously in the middle seat. I had extra leg room but if I’d eaten the free 5 pretzels I wouldn’t have been able to fit it my seat any longer. The WiFi wasn’t working for the first hour of the flight. The flight attendant got really annoyed when we didn’t look up when he came by with beverages the first time. We all had headphones on and were looking at our personal screens. The activity by the rest room was constant so we didn’t notice it wasn’t just someone waiting for the loo. The luggage took so long to come out I thought my conference would be over before I got it. Overall, I thought it was bad and confirmed why I don’t fly United. Old, dingy planes, poor service. The pilot was pleasant and communicative so there was at least that..."
Cons: "Crew not friendly, no space on plane"
Pros: "The UA crew from NRT to DEN met my (lowered) expectations. The best thing is the exceptional comfort afforded by the 787--it is hard to book any other aircraft if I have a choice! Going through immigration and customs at DEN is very efficient as well, and DEN makes a great connecting point."
Cons: "I wish the NRT-DEN service were offered by NH instead of UA!"
Cons: "Very turbulent day."
Pros: "Love the wifi and free movies!!"
Cons: "To cramped. Only a 85 minute flight but my legs were cramping."
Cons: "The United boarding staff was no help at San Diego airport. I was at the gate 30 minutes before flight take off time, but by the time I arrived, the door was closed, so I was waiting in front of the gate seating area. the flight time was 10:40, and my clock says 10:41, and the flight was gone. This is my first time in 20 years gate attendant didn't announce anything, and there are other people who missed this flight. Because of this, my rest of the trip was miserable, missed meeting in Santa Fe. I need a money back."
Cons: "Placed in middle seat with no options for isle or window due to my ticket. No problem with that if the people next to me were not so big. Young woman to my left by window was tall and broad and slept but took up all elbow and shoulder space. Guy to my right was very obese, sweaty so kept wiping his neck, head, and face with a cloth. Also had terrible body odor. I spent the entire flight in a narrow middle seat, hunching my shoulders due to lack of space. Both people taking up some of what little room I had."
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: "The crew was stellar! For a change, the flight wasn't too full, and one of the flight attendants went out of her way to move me and my husband to a row where we could have the middle one open. Another flight attendant was so pleasant and friendly, without being in the least intrusive, and so was one of the flight crew who I by chance exchanged a few pleasantries with. The food was reasonably good, although oddly leaning a little too heavily on the carbohydrate side. The WiFi actually worked, and the entertainment offered not bad. I liked that there were a few off-the-beaten-track choices in movies and TV documentaries."
Cons: "What I didn't like was after booking a ticket, then calling before my round trip to see if I could make a change of one day for the return. I was quoted a price of $4,870 to change two $300 tickets. I opted to not change and expressed my dismay at this preposterous fee to change. Her best suggestion was to check again after the trip out (Denver to Heathrow). I did, on Friday April 13th, when I called Lufthansa (it was a Lufthansa flight operated by United) I was told it was a mere $600 to change 2 $300 tickets. Again my husband and I decided not to do this. Yet, when we arrived at Heathrow for our return trip, we couldn't get our boarding passes because they said we were too early for our flight tomorrow. Somehow they'd changed it after we declined to make the change! We were able to get it changed back and get on the flight, but got not a word of apology or explanation. Still waiting to see if any kind of charge shows up we will have to dispute. Not at all happy with Lufthansa for this."
Pros: "Fast boarding and friendly staff."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Chairs hard"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."
Cons: "Seats to small. But I am 6'3"" and my son traveling with me is 6'5"."
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."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi didn't work when I tried it on my computer."
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: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"
Cons: "For some reason, the crew was not letting anyone bring their carry-on bags onto the plane, but there was clearly enough space in the overhead bins. If there was an issue with putting stuff in the overhead bins, they should have explained why we couldn't bring our belongings with us instead of yelling at people for trying to bring stuff on the plane that had plenty of space. I saw 4 or 5 bins that were completely empty and that was in the back of the plane I don't know what it looked like closer to the cockpit. Either way, the gate crew was very rude to everyone and it was very unpleasant to experience. Thank you for taking the time to review my feedback."
Cons: "Was flying from LA and the plane got to the Denver airport on time but had to wait 20 mins on the track for a diff plane to leave so our plane had a place to pull up. This made me only have 15 mins to board my connecting flight to Minneapolis. After I rushed to the gate, United told me that they had a smaller plane so 28 people had to take a different flight. How does that happen? The $500 voucher they gave me did not make up for the time I had to fly to Chicago to make another connecting flight to get to Minneapolis. This was my second flight in one weekend as I was flying for an emergency. Both times United switched its gates for the flights last minute so I was scrambling to get to where I needed to go. Never again."
Cons: "When all the passengers, who book the flight, cannot be accommodated, the airline should not allow booking for that flight. Having a ticket and a boarding pass to board my flight, I was still told (and was not asked if I would like to do this) to take another flight route, which would take me to my destination 5 hours later than my booking time. The complimentary vouchers is not always appreciated when the passenger is already exhausted from previous flughts, and then is told to spend additional time at the airports/flights just because the flight went overcapacity. I wish the flight staff had asked if anybody on the flight was willing to volunteer for a different flight, instead of just making the 4-5 passengers take this alternate route, all because of the overbooking. Also, the flight gate as mentioned on the boarding pass was not accurate, and the only way a passenger can come to know of the change, is if the passenger makes an effort to go verify this information. IMO, the airline should make an announcement, at the least, at the gate mentioned on the boarding pass that the gate has changed."
Cons: "After spending $3000 on two first class tickets- my fiance was sent to urgent care and we were unable to make our flight on time. Customer service told us that they were unable to re-book us without a fee and even then they couldn't honor the tickets until 3 days later. This was frustrating given that there were numerous first class tickets available on various third party sites and united.com that would have been able to get us there the next day. Long story short I spent another $2300 to book a new flight with delta and I will never use United ever again."
Pros: "I liked that they were polite and friendly during the national United flight groundings due to the computer error."
Cons: "I did not like the terrifying situation in which the pilot said we would be landing in 15 minutes (at this point we were close enough to the ground that I could see cars ) but then without any further announcement proceeded to point the plane upwards and started flying up up up so that all the city lights disappeared and all I could see were stars next to us. I asked 2 different flight attendants wtf was going on and they both said "oh he's just looking for smooth air" which was clearly BS because I was in the very last row of the plane and if there had been rough air I would have been the first to feel it. After inexplicably shooting upwards for what felt like an eternity we finally turned around and ultimately landed and guess what, no rough air to be found. Now I know why airplane pilots update you all the time, because when he pulls a maneuver like that without any warning it is terrifying and all I could think of was the suicidal dude in Germany from Lufthansa. Not cool. Other than that the flight was fine and they were really nice despite the like 3 hour delay or whatever it was. It cost me an extra $60 cause I arrived so late my husband and baby couldn't pick me up anymore but they offered a credit for a future flight so it's ok. I appreciate the gesture."
Cons: "A passenger had to move because of an allergy to the "emotional support dog" in the seat next to her. They moved her before the rest of the flight had boarded, so the seating got messed up and took quite a bit of time to sort out. The flight crew seemed to be extremely put off by the whole scenario and couldn't seem to keep their displeasure professionally under control. I ended up volunteering to move because the passengers who caused the problem refused to bend. For all the crew's displeasure, they didn't handle the passengers, the passengers handled them."
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: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Wish they had TV"
Pros: "Get to Denver, they tell me I don't have a seat, they asked me if I wanted to fly out the next day because they over booked met three other people who had been there for 10hrs because they did the same thing to them! One girl told me they told her it was because we paid less then other people! A nice couple stayed so I could come home. I was pissed! My daughter flew into Houston, the flight was late getting in to LA, by two hrs, missed her connecting flight to San Luis Obispo, her sister had to drive down 4hrs to pick her up and drive back because she had work! Not happy!!!!"
Cons: "I was flying home the day after having broken my L5 Vertebrae. I was held up in security because of the patch the doctor put on my back and although the TSA employees were very nice and friendly I almost missed my flight. While boarding, the staff took the opportunity to berate me for being late. While I understood why, it was really unprofessional to speak to a passenger like that without the full context. It didn't help that I was really cranky. Never had a bad experience with united before so I was very disappointed."
Pros: "The friendly co-travelers as there is no food or entertainment for people on a budget. Better than my flight TO SLC which was cancelled the first day, then delayed the 2nd day. Airport services saved my day by carting me to the connecting flight TO SLC from Denver as there was only 15 minutes to get from one end of the concourse to the other. A little difficult to run there at my age. Any chance of allowing people with connecting flights disembark first instead of last in this situation?"
Cons: "Due to inclement weather conditions no liquids were served. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Pros: "Landed on time."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Cons: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."
Cons: "I'm usually a patient person, but my flight was supposed to leave at 525am and didn't leave until 730. This was the first flight in the morning. We boarded, waiting 30 minutes on the plane, they told us to get off because there were computer issues. Why wasn't that checked before everybody was boarded? Once we got on the plane we had to wait another 30 minutes for the crew to get someone's luggage from under the plane. Why wasn't that done while the computer was getting fixed? I didn't get to Denver until 1040am missed my flight and didn't get to get on my connection until 500pm. In the meantime I called to get on a different flight at 1, but the guy on the phone didn't actually book me a seat. The gate people weren't very nice."
Cons: "My boarding pass was not scanning which was holding up the line. A second person came over to approve me getting on the plane. That person made me check the size of my carry on bag, which had gotten bigger from some things I purchased in the airport but was just a touch too large for their sizer. She attempted to check the bag meaning I wouldn't have it until my final destination, which I was NOT ok with for two reasons. One was i had a 3 hour layover after this flight and needed work materials inside. The second was i was on a time crunch to get my ride at my final destination and was only traveling with carry on. She was very rude and insitant on it fitting inside the sizer as she stood over me with the tag to check my bag. I managed to take some things out that I moved into my backpack, which meant I had to awkwardly carry my blanket and travel pillow onto the plane. The most frustrating part was when I got on the plane, it was oversized top carryon bins, so the extra inch my bag grew would have been fine. Because of the time it took me to rearrange, i was the last one on the plane and all the bins had been filled with tiny second bags, but a few people on the plane had seen what happened and they rearranged a space for me. Also my video screen was broken and everyone else's worked. And there were two screaming babies around me the whole flight, but that is no one's fault."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing about this experience has been good."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 times as of 11:40pm, the flight was supposed to leave at 8:10. At this point we have lost a non refundable rental car reservation and a non refundable hotel reservation and not a single person at the "customer service center" could even offer an apology or a suggestion as to what our next option would be, given that we are meant to be at a wedding in the Denver area in the morning. The aircraft is apparently pulling up as I type this, but that doesn't negate the fact that we are now getting no sleep, and losing a significant amount of money in reservations because we will not arrive on time. Please advise and rectify."
Pros: "The plane was clean, flight was smoothe, cost was good."
Cons: "Made me check my carry on because they stated there was no room which was not the case when I walked on ( found at least 6 spots). I requested to at least be able to look for myself seeing as how my seat was in the very back, but they refused. Also, allowed many customers to store their personal bag ( their backpack) in the bins that were oversized which should have counted as their carry on, just allowed them because they wanted to. They should have made those individuals check their "carry on". Also limited snacks available by the time they were able to provide service to my area of the plane."
Pros: "Tsa stopped all in my party for private screening to run us very late.."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all super kind."
Pros: "The crew was competent"
Cons: "Your crew and service atrocious"
Pros: "Once on the aircraft everything was just fine"
Cons: "First of all it was delayed, no big deal but once i checked in I wasn't even assigned a seat. I try to find an agent at the boarding gate and none to be found. They finally arrive 30 min before take off and then assign me a middle seat when I specifically picked my seat weeks earlier and of course was one of the last people to board barely enough time to search for a place for my bag and get to my middle seat in the back of the aircraft. Not even a sorry or any type of compensation for a terrible experience"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "United has squeezed its Economy class customers into seats that are tolerable only for the shortest. If I were an inch or so taller, I would have found the space intolerable. As it was, my knees were against the seat in front. For a flight as long as this one (over 5 hours from Anchorage to Denver), it was uncomfortable to say the least. The middle of the plane was nearly empty, because United charges $75 per seat for an upgrade. For the round-trip for two of us, that would have added $300 to our bill. The fact that so few are willing to pay the upgrade fee indicates that the increment is too large."
Pros: "Personable crew."
Cons: "Middle seat"
Cons: "When we booked the flight it had a 2 hr layover, which we thought would be enough to transfer plans. When we arrived we had to pick up our bags to go through customs. United's method of helping customers recheck their bags is very poor. We sat an waited until the only 2 staff members working the recheck helped another customer rebook a flight they missed instead of checking bags of customers needing to catch a flight. Eventually we ended up having to run through the airport with all our bags from the international airport to the domestic airport and checking our bags in that airport because the lady's at the recheck desk didn't seem to know how to handle checking the bags in. Once we made it to the other airport and checked our bags there we had 5 minutes before boarding was going to close to make it through security and run to the terminal. Luckily, once we made it to the domestic airport the staff there was very helpful getting us on our plane. Although we did have to run to make it."
Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."
