Pros: "Old aircraft showing its age."
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus is always great !"
Pros: "Quick boarding process and take off. Flight was slightly late but the staff expedited boarding and take off. Staff is friendly. Service was great. Beverage service was great. Baggage was quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "Even though its a short flight better food options for First Class would be appreciated."
Pros: "A box was under my feet, not sure what it was. A part of plane! ATL - EZE uncomfortable Crew great in spite of ongoing turbulence!"
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: "Bags were waiting on Carousel"
Cons: "Slightly delayed due to incoming flight delayed"
Pros: "Quick flight"

Pros: "The flight was great from beginning to end. I have no complaints."
Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."
Cons: "Crew was rude and made everything seem like a chore."
Pros: "Seatback tv."
Cons: "Stewardess berated a man for leaving his backpack on the floor in front of him rather than politely addressing the issue. She told him you know better than that and don’t ever do that again. It was totally uncalled for."
Pros: "This was two hours of absolute freezing temperature"
Cons: "It was so cold it was actually unbeasable"
Pros: "That was a treat since I don't expect the option to watch movies on short flights Also, thank you for the healthier snack items- keep moving in that direction please!"

Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Seat was very cramped and I want able to be comfortable at all. I couldn't even sit back I the seat!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, the snack was pretty good. Good air conditioning."
Cons: "Didn’t turn off overhead light. It’s usually off most of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and a half"
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: "I got off the flight at out side,but i forgot to carried my small bag .and then the Crew returned me the bag very soon.they were very kind,thank you very much."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Paid $30 for wifi and it never worked. Would like a refund"
Pros: "None of it!! Poor selection"
Cons: "All of it. Again poor selection"
Cons: "Although I understand the needed delay, it would have been nice to have been served ice water in the hot cabin, instead of a small cup of tepid water."
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: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice staff, good entertainment available."
Cons: "I am 5'6 and the head rest was too low for even me, I can't imagine for individuals taller than me. It is a short flight but entertainment would be nice. Plane seemed quite old."
Pros: "On time great staff"
Cons: "Little cold"
Cons: "Boarding area; boarding agent; boarding staffing; seating (comfort); flt. attendants: That's all... aww"
Cons: "I was separately seated from my husband and had to seat in the middle because my ticket status was economy"
Pros: "I'm an American ex-pat who travels to and from between the US and Australia. I do whatever I can to fly on Australian rather than American airlines, as they are always much better in every regard. But in this case it wasn't feasible, and I found myself on a Delta flight. I'd say the overall experience was somewhere between okay-good. Nothing major to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. The entertainment options were decent. I appreciated the variety of newly released movies. However, I would have liked a greater selection of TV shows, and the availability of more episodes. I also appreciated the availability of internet access, but I don't understand why it has to be quite *so* pricey. Surely they could make a bit more on greater volume if they dropped the price a bit. I didn't purchase access, but I would have if it were 40-50% cheaper. The comfort of the plane seemed the same as any of the alternatives. Boarding and deplaning were as they should be."
Cons: "The service from the crew though was simply ok. They were just friendly enough not to be rude, but no more than that. Virgin Australia and Qantas consistently have much happier crews, who make you feel like a dignified guest, even in economy. The food was average at best, and they served two meals where the Australian airlines would serve three on the same flight. They also offered less in the way of snacks and drink refills. It seemed like they were cutting corners here, which I don't appreciate on a 15 hour flight. Also, they said they "proudly serve Starbucks coffee". After drinking it, I don't think they should be proud of that! Again, overall it was a decent experience. Nothing flashy, but nothing too bad either. If the costs are comparable for your flight, you should certainly choose one of the Australian carriers. You'll get better service from the crew and better food. The one caveat, however, is that Delta has WiFi, whereas at the date of writing this, the Australian carriers do not. While access is exorbitant, if you really need to get some work done on the plane, you might choose Delta for this reason alone."
Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to late arrival of plane. Crew was not courteous and rushed people to board"
Cons: "I will avoid the airline at all costs"
Pros: "Great stewardesses, good food"
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: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "We paid for WiFi but it was not working on this flight."
Pros: "There was a lot of entertainment choices"
Cons: "Seats are so crammed. Plane was late."
Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Had to pay $80 for an upgrade to be (fairly) comfortable for the flight."
Pros: "Good crew. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Seat 20D stereo plug on screen was very finicky, lost audio until I twisted the plug. Happened any time I moved the headset cord."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment was not reliable on one of our TVs, and the earphones ports barely worked, had to hold the plugs to hear. MinimL food choices, and you had to go to the rear of the plane to get it. Staff on plane was not super friendly."
Pros: "Loved getting pretzels and pop. Loved having movie options. Didn’t love the delay."
Cons: "If the seat hadn’t broken and delayed our flight by 20 minutes"
Pros: "Crew was really great!"
Cons: "My bag never left Chicago so I had to wait a day to get that"
Pros: "Old aircraft. No media at the seats. Why are old aircraft still being used?"
Cons: "Basically everything. For the price, the flight on AA across the sea was horrible."
Pros: "one of the crew members (Ana) was not only rude and bumping the food cart everywhere, she apparently did not learning as kid the basic of thank you and please. In addition her personal manners of cleaning her nose with her hand, was not only disgusting but unhygienic."
Cons: "Food, boarding and some training for some of the crew"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not sitting on the runway for 2 hours"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly tasty for airplane food, vote would be lovely if someone could figure out how to produce a hash brown at the passenger seat without having it be limp"
Cons: "I’m guessing that a great many passengers would happily pay 10% more on their fair to have 10% fewer seats on board so that was actually possible to achieve a state of modest comfort while flying in a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Pros: "Chicken wrap"
Cons: "No individual screens on back of seat rests. Old tube televisions in the ceiling, in the aisle walkway that don’t retract. No WiFi. Which means not even movies on your own device. And no power - neither usb nor 3 prong"
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The pilot was too aggressive in regards to the take off and landing, landing was way too hard and fast"
Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Pros: "Missed my connection because my flight was late. Then made to get on stand by. Not cool."
Cons: "Missed my connection because my flight was late. Then made to get on stand by. Not cool."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. They accomodated us with free snacks and sandwiches. The flight crew were very professional and were nice to us, because a lot of us were worried about making our flight. They kept us updated with all the changes. They had good entertainment selections. The pilot got us to our destination about 5 minutes early."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about 7 times, we changed gates twice, and the I got to my second layover with 20 minutes to spare instead of the usual 2 1/2 hours. When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them. Instead of trying, she juat said no. I felt like an inconvience to her, like it was my fault I didn't have enough time between my flights."
Cons: "51/2 hour delay!! Should have brought in another plane."
Cons: "Ugh. By this time I'm worn out and fed up from hassling with Customs. Then they lose my luggage."
Pros: "The only decent point was the food. Not great but at least edible."
Cons: "Since check in in São Paulo was a complete chaos. There were only 2 people helping on check in (in machines) and these people were still not helping people (like me) with questions about on how to do check in in those machines. On the other hand to dispatch the bags there were almost 8 attendants to receive the bags. Ridiculous! I’ve tried calling American Airlines and Latam several times to assign a seat for me and they swore there were only middle seats but I know how airlines work to make extra money on these seats. At the end, they only gave me a middle seat option and I had to take I.t of course. On the plane I realized there were dozens of empty seats and yet they made sure not give them to me or anyone else. Unbelievable! Unfortunately I still have to use AA on my way back to Brazil. After this, I’ll chose another airlines for sure. Also, the 3,4,3 arrangement is ridiculous: there’s no corridor space making people touching you everything someone passes by your seat. And boy! Those seats are so uncomfortable and there’s no way to incline the chair so you can even have a little rest (because it’s impossible to even sleep on those seats). The crew were simply doing their jobs! No pleasure! No smile! No engaging with anyone unfortunately! They looked miserable and I asked for water and the flight attendant NEVER brought me anything. Seriously! Water is free!"
Cons: "The service was mediocre and the food was horrible! It made me sick!"
Pros: "Seat was pretty good, flight crew performed well."
Cons: "Left and landed over 2 hours late. Still, it took forever to board the flight. The cabin staff was unorganized and unpleasant."
Cons: "The crew was rude, one member complained the whole time saying she deserved a raise. We sat on the runway an hour because we were overweight and had to burn off fuel (which lead to me almost missing my connecting flight. they didn't ask before having someone sit next to me (when the seat was suppose to be free). was woken for every reason except food. check in was a nightmare and I was selected for extra checks (so I couldn't check in online). Terrible. Will never fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "Very little legroom for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Friendly , kind, crews"
Cons: "No good entertainment ,prefer personal t.v sreen"
Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Connection from SAN to PHX seemed cheaply made."
Pros: "Even though we were group 6 both ways, boarding was smooth and fast! We arrived early and was able to check our overpacked carry-on. Luggage was unloaded within minutes of our getting to the baggage claim. We were even able to move up to the middle of the plane coming back home!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind!"
Cons: "Poor crowd control in airport- monitor did not show gate even 20 minutes before the flight after the gate changed , then it changed 3 different times. Few Avianca staff available to answer questions/clear up the confusion. It was actually comical. On the previous flight Lima-> Cusco, they bumped us off our flight even with confirmed tickets, said the "flight was full" (obviously oversold) and said we'd get a $50 voucher and asked me to write my email on a piece of scrap paper, no receipt."
Cons: "Not much offered on domestic flights."
Pros: "Entertainment comfort crew food fligjt"
Cons: "Not 1 thing"
Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"
Pros: "Quick little trip from San Diego to Phoenix. Crew made the extra effort to keep the plane cool despite the 120 degree temps in Phoenix."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good. The Founder and Creed are great movies."
Cons: "It's an old plane and almost nothing works. The food was not great. The crew was horrible. It sounded like the pilot was drunk. The crew treated us like we were a burden. They spent the entire time bothered and ripping on the passengers."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"
Cons: "No wifi nor power outlets. The entertainment was okay at best."
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"
Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time. Enjoyed the blankets and the inflight movie options were good."
Cons: "Cramped, and we didn't get seats together... Hate the system where you have to pay $30-$95 additionally to choose your seats before check in, just doesn't seem fair when the tickets are already crazy expemsive and you're paying for your luggage as well... if you don't pay extra, you (we) end up sitting across from the restroom for six hours of in and out excitement."
Cons: "Carry on limitations"
Pros: "the airlines did try to accommodate by giving us optional flight when our connecting flight got cancelled"
Cons: "No meal options for vegetarians for breakfast. They just gave everyone a turkey sandwich. Rude, frustated and sarcastic staff"
Pros: "Ordinary flight, not too chaotic for holiday weekend."
Cons: "My luggage was lost! Had to wait an entire day to recuperate my suitcases."
Pros: "Crew was very upbeat and attentive to passengers. We sat in Main Cabin plus and there was a lot of legroom."
Cons: "1. Limited menu of food for purchase 2. wifi did not work over the Pacific--their wifi is ground based rather than satellite based."
Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "not beat up"
Cons: "people trying to get extra carry on on"
Cons: "Checking a bag on American at LAX is a nightmare. We were lucky to eventually find a worker who actually wanted to help us when the kiosk malfunctioned."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment, and thought the service was good."
Cons: "I didn't like having our seats moved from the rear of the plane to right over the wing, and I am still trying to figure out how to sleep on a plane...not alaska airlines fault. Also, if the flight is operated by american airlines, please make it crystal clear which gate and airline counter I am supposed to check in at, and which frequent flyer program I can count my miles towards."
Pros: "Excellent flight, very smooth and very courteous flight crew for both the Boise to Phoenix and Phoenix to Philadelphia segments."
Cons: "The individual seat air flow was nice and cool during take off and landing. However the in flight air flow was warm the entire flight. This applies only to the Phoenix to Philadelphia flight."
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 service was excellent! The crew was happy and accommodating."
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"
Cons: "I like that they had freer media for us to see and wifi abalibl"
Pros: "Same as above (for both flights"
Cons: "Same as above (for both flights"
Cons: "Delayed for over 3 hours due to jetbridge being stuck to plane. Basically 2 5.5 hours have taken me 2 full days instead of one"
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: "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!"
Cons: "I had a seat that had a monitor that was steaming code in front of me for 6 hours. It couldn't even be turned off. The only thing the crew offered was a piece of cardboard to cover it up. "If you download the United app you can pay to stream movies." I hate United and I don't use that word often. I would much rather give praises than complaints. Pay extra for food, entertainment, emergency isle seats... not that the tickets didn't already cost me a fortune. Crew even gave me grief about hanging up my suit!?! I flew to Thailand recently for less than flying to Texas, and everything was included, comfortable, and FRIENDLY. NOT UNITED."
Pros: "More fights to choose"
Cons: "Could not choose the seat at the time booking"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. They offered refreshments when we needed."
Cons: "Food, like all airlines, is so lacking even though airlines are making record profits while lessening service (crowded, fewer flights, baggage fees, etc)."
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: "The travel agent, Tim, in STL worked very hard to get us on a flight."
Cons: "After a cancelled flight, two delays and lost luggage (that we did not receive for two days after arrival) on the way to Boise, we've now been cancelled on the way home to St. Louis. The first cancellation was due to weather. The two delays were due to late crew and refueling issues. Today's cancellation was due to maintenance. Embarassing. I travel often and can guarantee I will never fly United again."
Pros: "Very smooth and easy. Thank you"
Pros: "Fast and smooth"
Pros: "we left right on time. It was a smooth flight and a nice aircraft. did not use entertainment so no comment there but was a good experience overall."
Pros: "After the 2nd broken plane, they gave everyone $10 food coupon"
Cons: "Three hour delay, two broken planes, but all things considered not too bad."
Pros: "Attendants were nice."
Cons: "I booked the comfort economy seating that I normally do with Delta. With their additional cost you get a larger seating area, free in-flight movies, reserved compartment space for your carry on and a free drink. No such thing with United. They did try to have movies through their app, but it wouldn't play long enough to allow you to watch."
Pros: "Much better leg room on the upgrade. Thanks for the blanket too."
Cons: "And, on a 5.5 hour flight the flight attendants only came down the aisle one time to offer drinks or snacks. The seat was sort of dumpy, my charger wouldn't stay plugged in and the pocket on the seat in front of me was ripped."
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Pros: "The flight was delayed, but once I got on I had a great flight!"
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!"
Pros: "prompt emails and text messages with the back up plan"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because flight delayed takeoff from home due to SFO problems. Sat on tarmac for an hour or more, finally took off but missed connecting flight mid afternoon and no other acceptable flights until 11 pm getting into Fort Lauderdale at 730 am. (originally was supposed to be getting to Fort Lauderdale at 10 pm). Also, the aisle seats on the plane had a narrower underseat space that my little boxy carryon wouldn't fit into--and it usually fits under any underseat storage...Luckily the passenger in the middle was willing to swap places."
Cons: "Worst ever Can you credit my credit card for a full refund"
Cons: "The crew wasn't the friendliest. Kind of a buzz kill when you're en route to Kauai."
Pros: "Boarding and.crew awesome. Crew helpful, friendly, and efficient."
Cons: "Didn't like to have a fee for my bag. Have to pay for wifi"
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."
Pros: "Not much positive on this flight other than I was headed home. I had a decent seat but I had to pay extra for it."
Cons: "This review is for another flight that paid for the same day as this flight from LA to Lihue. The actual flight for this review is a different flight that I paid to get my friend on so could get home. He pretty much had an equally bad experience. The following is my review from my flight from San Diego to Lihue, through San Fransisco. I paid for both flights but wasn't offered the opportunity to submit a review for the flight I was on so I'm taking this opportunity now to do so. I was on a flight home after losing one of my best friends. The flight attendant was extremely rude, making me feel like she was going out of her way to get me a drink of water and never returned to offer food after they missed me when they went down the isle. The gentleman attending to the first class passengers was beyond rude to anyone attempting to use the lavatory near the first class section as if people were supposed to know that it was only available to first class passengers. I was never offered food and myself and other passengers repeatedly ignored by our flight attendant. The entire flight was freezing cold and the air blowing so loud that I couldn't hear any volume on the movie player I was watching, making that nearly impossible as well. I landed at my destination feeling cold and hungry with a pretty bad taste in my mouth towards United Airlines. I don't normally fly United but due to the untimely hospitalization of one of my best friends and having to fly on such short notice, it was all that was available. I used to be a united mileage member but my points expired and became useless to me, living in Hawaii with very few flights in and out of the state several years ago. They seem to have added flights since then but other airlines have won my loyalty since then. I was hoping for a better experience as I remember having better experiences flying United. After this recent experience, I'm not sure that I will be flying United again, especially given the price of fares and what you get for what you pay. You'd think the staff would be more welcoming knowing that people pay so much to fly and then pay for everything else once on the plane. (A comfortable seat, food, drink, etc)."
Cons: "I didn't like the 5 hour delay... Neither did any other United customer as it seemed like every single flight was delayed to everywhere for only united airlines"
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: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "That u load the plane assistance backard,loading goes much faster if you start @the back of the plane,& myself I carry only a shoulder bag only ,all the time. U put me @ the back of the plane 90% of the time which means I have to wait for the people that are moving their whole house,making me miss my schedule, I have to spend night @ airport for next schedule."
Cons: "no inflight entertainment."
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: "Not only do I get the best price. The fact that you told me what carousel to get my bag from was new to me. I alway check kyak first but now I love u guys. I know my travel site and its kayak"
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "I almost missed my flight, because at check in they were only helping Premier passengers. Forced to wait for 45 minutes. All I wanted to do was check a bag! When I finally got to the counter, the customer service agent was extremely rude, slow and frustrated. I had to run from check in to security and only made it to the plane with seconds to go."
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."
Pros: "Newer plane so seats were cushioned better, crew was attentive. Great landing on icy runway."
Pros: "The service was pretty good on time and clean i liked the whole trip!!!"
