Cons: "Left A bag behind in NY"
Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"

Pros: "Delta always does a superior job - domestically and internationally!"
Cons: "Late arrival"
Pros: "The crew really took care of us. You could tell they care."

Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "Horribly shaky. Thought I was going to throw up. The male flight attendant came off as rude. Just happy I got off the plane alive because it was rough"
Pros: "36 minute flight.."
Cons: "Not really much you can do"

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)."

Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Pros: "Got upgraded to comfort class it was comfy"

Pros: "Short flight."
Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."
Cons: "3 hrs delay My first fly was cancell Atl- Mty So ,they booking me next fly atl-Qro I have to stay weathing 9 hrs and just water and cookies"
Pros: "We were delayed one hour in Mexico city but when we were in flight the crew definetly made up for it. The crew served us a great meal with drinks of choice as quick as possible followed by a hot cup of coffee cookies and kept coming around to check if we needed any thing els. Way to turn things around Delta."

Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"
Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Pros: "Nice courteous cabin staff."
Cons: "See comment above"
Cons: "Rough flight and landing."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."
Pros: "We ask for help with a 80 year old woman that needed assistance signed up for help o get her from one terminal to her next carnet flight no one accepted her."
Cons: "Only saw what was supposed to have happened but didn’t no help from the air line period."
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"
Cons: "Either less stingybwith Basic Economy or take one less chance to repeat that it is basic."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "it was great!"
Cons: "AA needs to standardize their WiFi. Sometimes it is boingo, GoGo, or Panasonic or something other. Each has a different way of logging in. It is way too complicated. Sometimes you can watch on the iPad in a browser, other times you need a flash player or the AA app. Have a common way of at least accessing the internet, otherwise it can take 10 minutes to log in if switching from a GoGo yo Panasonic service. It is just too difficult and buggy. I am glad I don’t actually pay for the internet."
Cons: "Had abnormally long delays today!! Added 4.5 hours to my flight today"
Cons: "Truth is they practice in like cattle. I ended up sitting next to a ginormous woman. It was a very uncomfortable flight from DC to Charleston. Come on American you're better than that quit using such small planes!"
Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude. First of all she doesn’t know how to enter India OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) information. She was keep saying I do not have a visa to go to India. Which I do not"
Pros: "Flight was fast and professional."
Cons: "No reason to delay a 55 minute flight to make it over 4 hours just for rain. Absolutely ridiculous and I will be calling and complaining to be compensated for my time."
Pros: "Crew was great! Flight was smooth and on time!"
Cons: "Air conditioning!!!"
Pros: "Nice quick flight."
Cons: "Plane was really small. So we’re the seats."
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. Had a connection that was delayed several times and eventually cancelled without explanation. I was traveling for my best friend's wedding and they did not work with me to try to get me on the next flight. I had to book another flight from another airline."
Cons: "Thank you"
Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"
Pros: "I really appreciate the automatic notifications letting me know what gate my connection is at and what baggage claim I’m in. Very nice."
Cons: "Nothing that I took note of."
Cons: "Nothing you could do, it was a maintenance issue."
Cons: "More space for carry on luggage"
Pros: "EAsy boarding"
Pros: "Best leg room last leg."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The flight landed early."
Cons: "Seat back in economy was uncomfortable for a shorter person. The head rest pushed my head so far forward that my back and neck were curved so much it caused upper back pain."
Pros: "Not a challenging process from beginning to end."
Cons: "Aircraft seating was terrible! Seats were way too close together. Seats were uncomfortable. Couldn’t even get an entire soda from the attendant. Made me remember why I dislike flying."
Pros: "Flt on time & comfortable. Crew outstanding!!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Boarding lounge and plane were hot. No gluten-free options for snacks. At least I’d had a long layover where I could get a decent meal."
Cons: "Flight to and from AL on American Airlines were both canceled - I was switched to Delta on the ‘to’ trip and stuck in AL another night on ‘home’ trip"
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."
Pros: "The flight was a quick 39 minutes from Chicago, the staff was friendly. Good flight."
Cons: "It's snowing!"
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."
Cons: "the AA flight arriving to Charlotte experienced a door malfunction that delayed deplaning by 15 minutes. Not a big deal unless you had a close connection to begin with. Result was a dead sprint to Charleston gate where no attempt to hold the plane for those passengers. Also, a black, middle-aged woman with short hair working the ticket counter had the personality of a piece of cardboard with zero responsiveness. AA should reconsider who it places to interact with the general public."
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
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: "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."
Cons: "AA gate attendant assigned two of us to the same seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."
Cons: "customs in miami is aweful. long waits. its a long maze to get back to the domestic terminal as well."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."
Pros: "Rude stewardess."
Cons: "Bhm flight delayed . Threw everything else off"
Cons: "The flight never happened, so all in all, things we're pretty terrible!"
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Cons: "Bumping passengers with seated tickets so you can fly additional crew elsewhere is 100% unacceptable. Luckily I got on the flight last minute but only after dealing with extremely unprofessional staff/supervisors at the gate"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and ny seat had plenty of space."
Cons: "My flight times kept changing every 20 minutes. It drove me crazy to keep informing my family about constant delays."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy and the flight was on time."
Cons: "No entertainment was offered and leg room was minimal."
Cons: "Kayak keep giving me the wrong information. So I ended up canceling my flight and i had to pay for another ticket."
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: "Changed gates 4 times and walked all over the C terminal. Waited for 2 hours on the plane at the jetway for the captain to arrive (with no water). Finally offered 1 small cup of water and 1 bag of pretzels (at 8pm)."
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
Cons: "Flight was late and missed connection. had to stay overnight"
Cons: "Airport staff rudest I’ve ever seen. Terminals extremely close together and over crowded."
Cons: "It seems flights are always delayed or cancelled out of Chicago. My least favorite airport"
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: "Quick flight"
Cons: "United flew late and we had to RUN to new gate for connecting flight. Old small jet. No phones could be on. Odd folks drug their dog on board and were asked to put it on the floor. ... oh no! !!!!"
Pros: "On time. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "They switched my preselected seat, without my permission, and gave it to a flight attendant that was traveling. I dont understand why she couldn't sit one row behind my preferred seat."
Cons: "Had to download the United app to watch in flight movies. Then it didn't even work. The only thing that would play were the trailers."
Cons: "The Asian style snack mix was absolutely disgusting. I was expecting a thing of pretzels or peanuts, not a ball of wasabi"
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: "I had a man sit next to me who was in the wrong seat but didn't move. He told the girl to keep his seat and he would stay next to me. He was so big he was in my space and had didn't make any effort to try not to spill over in my area. I had to put a magazine next to my thigh because his body was so hot it was damp! I hated the entire trip. I was cramped up and extremely uncomfortable. This is simply unacceptable to have this happen because huge people can't fit in one seat. I want these obese people to be required to purchase 2 seats because they take mine."
Pros: "The crew was great and the pilot kept us informed the whole trip."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and there s no room to move. The seat in front of you is so close that watching the TV is uncomfortable. The seat pockets have no room for anything - a bottle of water doesn't even fit in them."
Pros: "Free carryon"
Cons: "Couldn't figure out wifi"
Pros: "Boarding , good communication"
Cons: "Crying baby + woman behind me non stop talking very loud during flight"
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."
Cons: "Flight was at 0700. Delayed until 0831 then 0900. Then we were taxi-ing for an hour. Didn't depart until a little after 1000."
Cons: "The cabin smelled like an unflushed toilet. That should be enough!!!"
Cons: "Sat in plane on runway for an hour"
Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."
Pros: "The seamless service from reservation to arrival at destination"
Cons: "Would have appreciated a lower fair"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "United continues to disappoint. I'm turning in my miles membership. I've tried to be loyal but enough is enough"
Pros: "I arrived two hours early to the airport as specified and arrived to find out my flight was delayed by over four hours. So my daughter and I had to sit in the airport for over six hours."
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: "Flight got cancelled after a 10 hr delay. No compensation offered. Told us too bad so sad. Pushed us off onto American and acted like they were doing us us a favor. Today was the day I swore my allegiance to Southwest Airlines. I don't care if you gave me a lifetime supply of flights and the CEO, your business model pales in comparison to that airline. Disgusted is the only word I can use to describe my experience. Save the hassle, use southwest even if it costs more."
Cons: "Everything. Worst travel day ever"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and no reasonable accommodations when I asked about a month ago to cancel and was told non-refundable or additional charges for changes"
Cons: "It was terrible. It was ridiculously hot and the plane smelled like pee. It was the worst flight experience my fiancé and I have ever taken. Shameful condition and experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I payed for my flight about a month prior and for some reason still did not have a guaranteed seat on the flight and almost got left behind"
Cons: "Both domestic flights got cancelled. I lost the first day of my vacation and had to miss an extra day of work on the way home."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "They lost my husbands luggage from Morgantown to Charleston and we sat for about 10 minutes with no gate in Charleston when we landed!"
Cons: "The Gate was changed several times with very poor announcement. Entertainment is N/A on these type of flights."
Pros: "Loved that it was an empty flight"
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Arrived on time. Fast boarding"
Cons: "A little turbulent"
Cons: "Plane too small to support carry-on suitcases, so everyone had to check them gate side and then wait for them right outside plane. All the hassle of carry-on (carry belongings through airport) without the perk (having belongings available during flight)."
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: "I liked that it got me to my destination"
Cons: "No entertainment, really uncomfortable, arm rest don't go up, planes are not cleaned from previous passengers, flight attendants hardly smile and don't interact as much as other airlines, delayed flights every time I fly with United."
Pros: "That it was short"
Cons: "Boarding a small plane on a cold rainy day by waking along the tarmac out to the plane. umbrellas are wet and wind insures passengers are wet before getting on board. A experience I hope to not relive. Oh drop the Asian "Style" snack and bring back peanuts"
Cons: "Had an extended overlay because of an overlap booking with our pilot. He was on another plane that wasn't due to come in until two hours later."
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: "Everything went smooth and on time"
Cons: "The seats were even smaller than the last flight. The space was very crammed and was too tight and made the flight uncomfortable."
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."
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"
