Pros: "The crew was great!"

Cons: "Better choice of snacks"
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Good crew, kind and hard working staff. It is so nice to have inflight messaging and that was a pleasant surprise that made the flight go quickly."
Cons: "I found the delta app to be less user friendly than the United one. I wish the in flight entertainment were in the Delta app versus downloading yet another app."
Cons: "After my flight was delayed for over 3 hrs - the counter clerk was rude and unhelpful. She felt it was appropriate for her to flick the customer service phone number in front of my teenage daughters. I would say avoid Delta!"

Pros: "Quick flight"

Pros: "The crew were great. A little too warm on the plane at the back of the plane and too cold at the front."
Cons: "Since this was the first leg of two, the person who checked us in did not check our bags to the final destination. Then, when we went to go to check in for our second leg, they wanted to charge for our baggage again. Not cool Delta."
Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"

Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"
Pros: "Flight attendants seemed nice"
Cons: "Too tight in the seats"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Empty seats, room to spread out"
Pros: "All wonderful."
Pros: "SLC ground gate crew was awesome."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."
Pros: "Good movies and some snacks."
Cons: "They told me last minute I needed to go to another gate for a passport check and a new ticket. They shouldn't have waited until the very last minute."
Pros: "We didn’t order food and there was no in flight tv/entertainment"
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: "Able to download boarding pass into apple wallet"
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing, bag is a carry on but storage too small to keep bag, then wifi didn't work the entire flight. Had to run to our connection since our layover time was taken up in Boise. If we had missed the flight, we would have been re-routed to another airport over 1 1/2 hrs away since ours closes. Next flight was not much better, oh and wifi did I t work on it also - last 3-4 delta flights I've taken have been late and didn't have working wifi - starting to think their system doesn't work at all - seriously going to take any other carrier but Delta going forward"
Pros: "The airline crew seems to be getting better, although I can't say that they are super helpful"
Cons: "The seats, just water offered, the bathroom, no Wifi, extremely crowded and small plane. Seriously, I don't understand what is all the money payed used for since I just heard that the crew members might be actually underpaid"
Pros: "Get a day in NYC"
Cons: "Two daytime flights booked so can't get to Bangor until the 9:00 pm flight tonight. Aitline only coveted one night at the hotel. Had to buy a second night so we don't have to carry our bags around all day."
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"
Pros: "They had good movies"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Cons: "Dirty windows. Could not see out window. I have a photo if requested. I am 6'4" the plane was small cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Drinks were passed out twice while everyone was waiting due to flight delay. There was one flight attendant that was awesome. I had asked for coffee due to migraine. I was stuck in the last row, back of the plane & had seen other people with coffee. The flight attendant told me no, I would have to wait for 3 more hours for coffee at breakfast. A smiling face showed up within minutes & asked if I wanted coffee. She told me that when she hears someone else say "no" that she thinks it should always be "yes". She was the African American flight attendant (wish I would have got her name). She brought me coffee, offered tylenol & checked in on me again later."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. Most of the service was fair at best, crew, no smiles, looked irritable. Our flight had been delayed about 4-5 hrs so passengers & staff grumpy. Poor selections on the movies. No charging stations in the seat. This plane was very noisy so I was really glad to have noise cancelling headphones. Very expensive to select seats as it was bought through a non-Delta site to get the desired connections."
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Pros: "The flights were all on time, in fact a bit early. The crew was very helpful, both on the ground and in the air. They were courteous and not patronizing."
Cons: "Offer more healthy choices for food. Give larger amounts of beverages particularly water."
Pros: "Love the texting notices."
Cons: "It was all good!"
Pros: "Safe trip. Kept informed of short delay. Thank you."
Cons: "The bathroom on the flight from Denver to Santa Barbara was the WORST EVER! I doubt it has ever been cleaned and the poor people that had seats near or at the rear of the plane should have been refunded their money having been subjected to the smell of an “indoor outhouse!” Shameful!!"
Pros: "The range of 'free' food and beverages (including beer, wine, and liquor was phenomenal, and the functionality of the 777 touch-screen was outstanding. Seating was also more comfortable than comparable flights on AA."
Pros: "The crew were friendly & efficient, the flights were on time, & the gate staff kept us well informed of any changes."
Pros: "Good crew, good and safe flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "Yes, crew were great, seat was okay"
Cons: "Have life vests on board for the crew, was delayed over 2 1/2 hours on run way!"
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"
Pros: "Poor customer service and not understanding."
Cons: "Don’t now it’s not the company’s fault it’s just the representative that I spoke to. I don’t know how many times I could explain my situation, and my English is not poor and I thought I was explaining myself clearly. Best think I could do is just say forget it I’ll take my $ 430 dollar last."
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Nothing, overall great experience"
Pros: "It didn’t happen."
Cons: "Because of the late plane and possible missed connection, I was re-booked for the next day without any compensation."
Pros: "Glad they had a direct flight."
Cons: "The seats didn't offer much room."
Pros: "Very pleasant attentive crew and ground staff. An aborted takeoff on tarmac meant a return to the departure gate and the plane taken to maintenance. The ground staff were superb in dealing with a full plane load of passengers many of whom had onward connections. This meant we had to stay overnight and fly first thing the next morning. Full marks to United for dealing with a potentially dangerous situation and then assisting everyone back in the terminal."
Pros: "It’s my longest trip ever due to United"
Cons: "Poor communication between the airline and I, I don’t like the service"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Little to no updates and wrong information when finally given. I was bumped out of my premium seat. I had to ask for refunds for the upgrade and priority seating they were not offered. And I had to ask for a meal voucher since none was offered. Alaska always has offered fist no asking needed."
Pros: "I found the reason for being late to be questionable They said heavy snow but as i flew in i looked out the window and saw all roads nicely cleared That does not happen in 3 hours"
Cons: "They did not get my liggage to the connecting flight And here i am in Ukraine with no winter clothes at 7 below 3 days later"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Had a mechanical issue we were told didn't need fixed to fly the plane. Took 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete safety checklist so we could take off. We missed our connecting flight to Cancun."
Pros: "the crew was very friendly and the flight was smooth"
Pros: "The staff & attendants were friendly & professional. The new United terminal is a very pleasant experience"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Super small aircraft so suitcases didn't fit. Didn't have food options, just pretzels."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "The overhead a.c. spout didn't work. Plane was very hot."
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
Cons: "Zero regard for customer service. I will never fly United Airlines again, I may never use Kayak again either. This was the worst travel experience of my entire life."
Cons: "Was told at check in that my flight was delayed and would not make my destination today. When I asked if there was another flight I could get on, they told me the upgrade would be over $1000, and that it wasn't their problem. Rudest customer service I think I have ever dealt with! I won't ever fly united again!"
Pros: "More fights to choose"
Cons: "Could not choose the seat at the time booking"
Pros: "That we got to Little Rock early"
Cons: "I had ordered ginger rail and the lady brought me a Diet Coke I told her I don't like Diet Coke because I don't drink Coke and she said I thought that's what you want it now you have to hold onto it until they come back and pick up the trash and she never brought me the ginger rail to drink she walked away and I never drank nothing on the flight back to Little Rock that lady was so rude"
Pros: "Great staff and everything on time"
Cons: "That a bunch of travelers including myself missed our connecting flight in Chicago after united chamged our arrival gate but didn't have any crew to man the jet way. We sat for 20 mins right in front of our gate. From 1 pm to 10 on my flight to Asheville from Chicago was delayed many many times waiting for our airplane to arrive. Upsetting that we missed our connection due to United's poor planning, they didn't hold our connecting flight for us but we had to wait all night for other flights."
Pros: "It was so smooth.No long lines ,no delays,a straight thru flight.And on Christmas Eve morning."
Pros: "Very smooth and easy. Thank you"
Pros: "Fast and smooth"
Pros: "The crew was nice to our one year old. And because it wasn't a full flight we were able to give him a seat which saved us!"
Cons: "We're healthy vegans and the snacks aren't friendly for us at all. We brought our own but to have options would have been nice."
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Cons: "Air quality"
Pros: "The flights were on time and very professional ."
Cons: "Very late departing Boise. No crew to fly plane. Our plane sat at the gate with no crew to fly it."
Pros: "The leg room on this flight was spacious. The crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Not a fan of the snacks that were served."
Pros: "Short flight, direct"
Cons: "Wifi misleading, sounds like free but not."
Cons: "I think that after first class they should load the plane from the last seat forward for ease of getting to the back seats"
Cons: "Charged 50.00 for check bags,when that was included in the online purchase,not happy and probably will not use either again!"
Cons: "Worst ever Can you credit my credit card for a full refund"
Cons: "The turbulence"
Pros: "Flight to Austin was just fine."
Cons: "My flight back to bosie from San Francisco they changed the gate I didn't hear the change and missed my flight. I didn't get back to bosie until the next day."
Cons: "United are the most rudest phone people on the phone to deal with and if it's there fault they never want to comp u last time I fly with united"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Good service."
Cons: "No blankets for a long flight (it was said housekeeping was running late, but the departure was 45 minutes and still no blankets). Nickle-and-diming for any small purchase. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "I arrived on time."
Cons: "Flight was ok. I was disturbed by the rudeness of flight attendant toward a service dog. This dog was the owners eyes and she seemed disgusted it was there. We had to let her know in front of other passengers so she would be put on the spot and change her attitude."
Pros: "Luckily the crew on this flight was friendly and courteous, unlike United flights I had 2 months ago, because everything else was pretty horrible."
Cons: "First, we were delayed over 2 hours for maintenance problems. Second the plane was cramped and the seats were hard as park benches. Third, this flight had zero entertainment options although they advertised for it in the seat back propaganda. Fourth, the cabin noise from the engines, once they got them started, was so loud that even my noise canceling headphones could not prevent me from getting a headache. At least we got there safely, eventually."
Pros: "Free entertainment on mobile devices"
Cons: "TSA pre check did not register from website, had to use standard security line. No boarding or seating preference for military."
