Pros: "Comfort Seats Service"
Cons: "... I don't eat red meat ... ... the pasta was good but then the second snack was only egg sandwich and bacon.. I wish they had one with no bacon for the non meat eaters . I'm actually allergic to red meat . :("
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We had a two hour delay inside the airplane without air conditioning. This delay risked my next flights (connections). Everything inside the airplane is old and terribly maintained."

Pros: "Great choice of entertainment, individual screens"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding, supposedly there is an sequence of groups, but it was very poorly implemented"
Pros: "The flight over to Bogota from NYC was perfect. No complaints. I was raving about it."
Cons: "We sat on the runway and then returned to the gate, resulting in a 2 hour delay, due to a faulty smoke detector in the bathroom. There was a lack of communication about status. At one point, they shut the air. Several times they shut off and restarted the entertainment system. It would have helped if they went through the cabin with water or a snack. It was a long wait and we had no idea why..."
Cons: "I don't recommend avíanca it is one of the worse airlines now never again don't waste your money on them"

Cons: "Avianca's departure was delayed from Bogota to New York by over an hour, which in turn caused me to miss my connecting flight home to DC. I had to pay $50 fee with Jet Blue because Avianca didn't advise of the delay, and my only option home was 10 hours later in the day. I cancelled Jet Blue flight and bought another ticket home. No service between airlines who are not in the same alliance. Travelers beware!"
Pros: "compared to other airlines there are no complaints"
Pros: "We landed on time. Always appreciated. The movie was absolute dog sh*t and the communal screens were tiny, but at least there was a movie."
Cons: "If I had known at the time of booking that what looked like a quick stop in El Salvador would actually involve everyone getting off of the plane, needlessly going through security again, having items confiscated even though they were legally purchased after going through security at the prior airport, and being made to wait yet another eternity just to board to plane again, I would have chosen another flight."
Cons: "Best foot"

Pros: "Staff was friendy. It was on time"
Cons: "The plane was a quite old one."
Pros: "The passenger next to me..... That's about it"

Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "Air condition too cold"
Cons: "The temperature throughout the flight was very high and humid almost like they AC wasn't working at all made it very uncomfortable to stand 5.5 hours on a plane. When asked for something to drink due to circumstances was told I had to wait until it was smack time"
Pros: "I'm very dissapointed with avianca specially.now that I have a few trips coming up. When I was at the airport I asked the clerked for specific information ,I asked him how much it would cost to take my surfboards if it was going to be to expensive I would just leave them home ,he said no problem that there would be a charge of.$120_150 and it cover the trip until denpasar ,I asked are you sure?he said YES that he would put it on the note and that if I had any problems in NY to just show them the receipt well no need to say.that.when I arrived in NY I was charged again ,the cs rep of the other airline said they wouldn't have charged if avuanca would have put that the surfboard was going until denpasanr when we said that he had done it we looked stupid because he had just checked our bags on the tag until Bali but not the surfboard. So now I have to return and I'm working if I will have.to.end up paying.$1000 in.total.just for my surfboard.when this could have been avoided from the start if the cs rep of Avianca would have told.me the truth or know how to do his Job. What solution can you give ,I feel very annoyed. Thank you"

Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "This is my second Avianca flight. Both times the flights were not full, yet both times my seat was in front of an exit row so I could not recline. A red eye overnight flight while sitting up perfectly straight is horribly uncomfortable. I do not understand why I was placed in this seat when there were other available options. This should be communicated to the customer when placing him in that seat, and a discount should be provided. I am requesting a partial refund, very unnecessarily uncomfortable flight. Thank you."
Cons: "Business class not worth it at all. Seats don't recline and there is next to no separation from main cabin with its crying babies."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. A good number of shows, movies and music choices were offered free of charge. Food was good but the portion was not enough. It felt like a I was served a happy meal."
Cons: "The crew members seemed a little unhappy. They were just doing what they had to do, no smiles or nice comments. food portions were extremely small, and it would help if they offered a second drink after dinner, perhaps even just water, coffee or tea."
Pros: "in terms of comfort, i really appreciated what avianca offered. it was a much more modernly designed plane, with a wide variety of inflight entertainment, usb outlets,, and generally comfortable seats. the crew was also very polite and professional."

Pros: "Everything food service crew"
Pros: "Everyone was lovely anf kind"
Pros: "flight was good."

Pros: "Petsonnell nice and helpful."
Cons: "Seats on a red-eye did not recline."
Pros: "I love that it was easy to get an exit seat(I need the leg room for my knees) and that they still feed people( not once but twice)"
Cons: "Really nothing to complain about although I did have to wait a little long for my bag(we all did)."
Pros: "I have not being able to complete th trip from Bogota to NY, because the airline has given me a lot of trouble with my reservation. Since the original return day was 12/31 few hours before new year's celebration the staff at the airport was simply rude and unprofessional to treat the clients. In a hurry to leave their job they just didnt want to help not only me but a few other passangers with different issues."

Cons: "Seats of the plane were unconfortable. Spaces between setas were too small."
Cons: "My wife's chair wasn't working"
Pros: "I definitely will fly with Avianca again ."
Cons: "To start off, the flight was delayed over 9hrs! Which would have been great to notify passengers instead of waiting for them to show up at 5 in the morning. Then scrambling to find other airlines to book them in. Was waiting in the airport til 10am when the other flight was to leave with another carrier. To add insult to injury she was one of the last people to board. Really never bothering with them again."
Pros: "Thanks for the wine /whiskey, blanket and pillow. What a great combo. Also, I got upgraded to a much nicer seat."
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "Copa change our flight to 5 hr layover with no options and panama airport is not comfortable to be there for that many hours unless you pay for the lounge $48 p/person and only 30 mins free wi-fi so very inconvenient. Also that airport closes the gates that are not been use so no one can sit."

Pros: "left on time and arrived on time choice of meals"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "Flying business class for significant less money from Rio to NYC/JFK."
Cons: "The seats are 'old style' business class, not fully flat sleepers. On a very flight like Rio to Panama City I missed the the flat sleepers you get on wide body aircraft.

Pros: "The crew was nice, and the flights was on time ,so easy to find the terminal"
Cons: "No food in all from lima-panama / Panama-NY , don't even soda, I have to ask for water. The food ny-panama / panama-lima was horrible test and look like dog food....the company have to change that YES or YES"

Pros: "The boarding was a nice touch"
Cons: "Well i would think it would be a better expiernce cuz I've heard that copa was a good airline and their service was excelent but i was wrong the food was dry and the people were rude the entertainment was a joke. The music would play the same song's over and over."

Pros: "The service is always very friendly on Copa. The boarding is timely. So is the off boarding. The pilots fly very well. Great landings and takeoffs."
Cons: "It was one of the most uncomfortable flights I've ever had. I was in seat 10E of a Boeing 737: in front of the exit row and could not recline my seat. The woman to my right was close to 300 lbs and was spilling into my seat. The gentleman next to me kept putting his elbows in my side. The cabin was way too hot -- uncomfortably so -- and the air vents barely pushed out air. The entertainment system on the plane was broken. I couldn't wait to land in NY."
Cons: "no vegetarian options"
Pros: "service, and always on time"
Cons: "i got stuck in the last row, but my fault for checking in late"
Cons: "On top of what happened with the flight from NY to Panama the situation wasnt handle any better for the conexion. There was not priority conection to the inmediate following flight to Bogota. We had to wait four more hours to go to Bogota. Also the sits were accomodated terribly for me (I can understand they had to use what was available) but if Im traveling with a minor the airline should make sure the child is seated next or near me. Even though, I understood it was a detail that simply they did not control correctly, I requested to two flight attendants to please fix the problem for me, but I was totally ignored by both. When I told them a second time, they said to me there was nothing they can do. But coincidencially, right after I was told, he sat one passanger whom have not seat assigned, right in front of me on the emergency exit. The attendant said minors cant go there which is true, but I would have seated there, and my daughter on the sit that I was which was right behind me. That plus another rude encounter with one of the flight attendants when I was getting into the plane made of my experience with Copa Airlines my first and only trip with them. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Pros: "this veggie meal had dairy, which makes a big (postive) difference for me the entertainment worked much better. although if it had been working on my first flight, it would not have been enough variety in options for movies"

Pros: "the fact that I made it home safe"
Cons: "that we did not have assigned seats and had to run to get out connecting fight before plane took off. All passengers didn't know where to go and waited to get assigned seats and plane took off late. I was not happy that my husband and I got place in separated. When I asked to be put together person at counter said once we were in plane. On plane we were told to wait until everyone was seated and that plane was not full. Once everyone was seated I was told plane was full and no seat left. When we arrived to N.Y. one of our suitcases did not arrived. It is now Sat. and still no suitcase. We contacted Copa and suitcase will be Fedex on sure when it will arrive"
Pros: "The food options were amazing! They even had free wine (white and red). Even on the short flight from Cartagena to Panama City, they gave us a little sandwich."

Pros: "Entire efficiency fluid from check in to departure"
Cons: "?? Not fan if airline food - but I didn't eat it . Nice to know if you get on plane starving that you don't have to pull out your wallet . Other airlines charge you for everything but "air" to breathe."

Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. First class seats fully reclined."

Pros: "Great service and delicious meals"
Cons: "When my husband and I arrived to Lima airport 2,5 hours before our scheduled flight, we could not check in because flight was overbooked? There was a seat for one of us (we overheard same conversation at counter next to our - 2 passengers, one available seat)... Explanation was they had technical problems with original plane and they had to replace it with smaller one and everybody else used online checkin in last 48 hours...Everybody else used online checkin?! Is that the rule? Last 48 h of my trip in Peru i did not have internet access, but if it's the only way to get your seat, you paid for months in advance, then I would find some solution. At the end, staying persistent in our request,we were on the scheduled flight (some "miracle" happened and we got 2 seats, next to each other, as same as couple from counter next to us)"
Pros: "Mad good"
Cons: "It was swell"
Cons: "Had to sit for 7.5 hours with no entertainment as TV did not work."
Pros: "-Entertainment in seat TVs was amazing. -Food was delicious -Tons of space and I was in the economy or regular seats. -Love the tinting windows! -Staff as always on LATAM in my recent experience was very good.

Pros: "were rescheduled for the flight Lima La2800. Scheduled departure 8.40a.m. Delay 2 hours - aircraft maintenance problem!? Still sitting in the plane in Lima."
Cons: "Customer service was not friendly or helpful in any way shape or form. not concerned for its guests or empathetic. the only thing that came across was that they sincerely didn't care even to make the airline more $$ in selling an upgrade of seats!"
Pros: "The attention was good. The air attendants were quite nice. For booking my meals I had a problem with the Call center and they left me waiting for 15 minutes until I had to hang. But then I contacted the Facebook page and I received an immediate response so everything was Ok."
Cons: "The plane on the first flight was quite old and the entertainment console was obsolete. The plane for the return flight was a new one, vey nice but the seats were hard and very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I flew business on the new airplane the Dreamliner. The experience was overall good. Very comfy plane. Slept like a baby. The food was the only bad thing I skipped both meals as it tasted like airplane food or frozen food out of a box."
Cons: "Boarding process was a mess. Not a smooth process at all."
Pros: "Flight schedule, inflight service and food in couch was amazingly the best I had in a long time. The entertainment was delightful. The telephone service for questions, while in Peru, was terrible. My flight reservation number was changed and I needed to talk to someone. I had to call the States help line instead of the local number which had a non working automated answering menu."
Pros: "We were lucky enough to have a flight on a new plane. It was in good condition, clean, and had plenty of entertainment options. I was able to charge my phone and the meal was good. my favorite thing was that I was able to check a bag for free!!"
Pros: "Everything. The while team was friendly, from check in on the ground all the way into the air."
Cons: "The flight at first had a 3 HOUR delay do to a "mechanical breakdown". We were told that they were going to bring another airplane from Rio de Janeiro. After the 3 hours passed they were only announcing in Portuguese to board the original plane. They never changed planes or provided a clear explanation to the passengers. Many of us refused to board. This was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. The staff was disrespectful and would not help us. We ended up taking another flight until the following night!!"
Cons: "Company was not able to understand situation and did not offer solution. I lost my money"
Pros: "The best crew and aervice I have come across in many, many year. The aircraft was really nice and conforatable too."

Cons: "The same things you don't like about all other airplanes, boarding procedures, lines for the bathroom ect"
Pros: "Most of the crew was really nice. The plane was extremely new."
Cons: "One crew member jacked my blanket and gave it to a different passenger. Also, my originally assigned window seat was reserved for cabin crew, so I was moved to an aisle seat that was narrower than my previous seat due to its in-armrest tray table."
Pros: "The big windows of the plane and the black tinted glasses are great, the service was great and the food very tasty. The seats are a bit narrower than the other planes but they are comfortable"
Cons: "The seats are a bit narrow"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Worst customer service I have ever experienced!"
Pros: "Plane was nice, good entertainment, good onboard staff. Very cool looking interior plane, and service"
Cons: "HORRIBLE pre flight, and in airport staff. Incompetent, zero clue as to handle a delayed flight forced every passenger to hand over passports into communal plastic bags and took them for 2 hours somewhere in the airport unknown to us. I should never have to give up my passport into plastic bags/strangers EVER. They lost my customs paper, and then proceeded to accuse me of "selling it"--They took it after I passed through customs initially and if they put it back in passport after they threw them all in plastic bags- god knows where it is, or who's hands it was in who may have took it. They would not give us food vouchers, or water. They couldn't figure out how to get buses and hotel rooms for people- basic simple business skills-- add number of passengers going to hotel, calculate number of seats per bus and that will get you the number of buses needed--- they couldn't figure that out. I will call and give more detail, I promise."
Cons: "Friendly staff. Took great care of my grandma"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "We had an hour delay and 15 minutes since we land to go out of the pkain"
Pros: "Great flight to Peru from NYC on Latam. Comfortable, clean and service was great. I would fly again on this airline."
Cons: "Staff spoke limited English which was a bit of a surprise on a US flight."
Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
Pros: "The food and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats were the smallest seats I've ever say in and I felt claustrophobic. Checking into this flight was a disaster and impossible. Tam would redirect me to Tam airlines and Lan would redirect me to Lan. The Lan customer service was unable to get into the Tam airlines flight so we emded up with the most awful chairs in the airline. I wish they would fix their website so checkin isn't as frustrating as it was for me. I understand the airlines merged but if each airline is unable to access eachothers flight then how exactly did you merge? ALSO when we got off the first flighy to connect in this one they gave us no explanation until 20min later to where we should commect to this flight. They MADE US WALK A 20min WALK TO ANOTHER TERMINAL WITH ALL OUR BAGS. It was awful. If your gonna need people to walk to another terminal the least you can do is supply a shuttle."
Pros: "Boarding was made extremely easy for the tired, seniors, and people with children."
Cons: "The crudeness of some of the Air Hostesses was appalling. The food was unpalatable and no tolerance for people who were lactose intolerant. Narrow aisles, so going to the dirty toilets needed ingenuity!"
Pros: "Outstanding customer service, The crew is awesome!! I would continue flying any change that I get on LAN."
Pros: "Everything except the cramped, smallish seating and the narrow cramped aisles."
Cons: "The cramped, small, tiny seats and the narrow cramped aisles."
Pros: "The attention and the entertaining of the flight"
Cons: "I didn't have a wi-fi access in the plane, it would have been amazing and great to comunicate with family and friends that my flight was little delayed due to air traffic. The last thing I didn't like was the super delayed luggage delivery, because I had no energy to wait an appalling 40 minutes after a long flight."
Pros: "crew and cleanliness"
Cons: "Uncomfortable spacing of seats on short flights a nightmare on long hauls. Have to assume the distance between seat and seatback ahead is now a safety issue should an emergency evac. be necessary. Had to argue over an imposed seat change despite holding a 2 hour old agent issued boarding pass. Gate agent plainly lied in claiming an equipment change was making it necessary. At start of trip (1/14), not allowed to board connection and suffered an additional 5hr. layover delay due to baggage transfer problem. No compensation of any type graciously offered for any of the inconveniences."
Pros: "A business class upgrade, lay flat bed, very comfortable. Overall wonderful, made me want to take this flight every time I travel to Chile for business."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very attentive compared to other business class flights I've been on, especially Delta. Seemed a little rushed, felt as if I wasn't able to enjoy the business class amenities."
Pros: "The airline was very clean. The attendants were very nice. The food was excellent."
Cons: "Because I did not buy the ticket straight from Lan Airlines , Lan postpone my Fly too many days later. I had a meeting that I was supposed to go and I couldn't make it."
Pros: "We knew that this sector was operated by AA and we did not have high expectations. No complains, just ok"
Cons: "First the check in process at Santiago airport was two hours long. They were totally understaffed and I believe they were dealing with problems of overbooking flights. The last hour in line was spent while in the front of the line while people from the back were being called ahead to check in because they were on other flights even though those flights were hours away. Secondly I preichecked in online the day before, chose a window seat, and when I checked in at the airport I was assigned a seat that did not match what I had chosen, which was also next to my partner I was flying with. There was no explanation until the gate at which point they said they changed planes and randomly reshuffled everyone's seats, after a call to the airline the customer service representative could not explain why anyone would ever say they "randomly reshuffled." The plane was overbooked so they could not accommodate my request to sit next to my partner. Finally at no point was there a warning about bringing water bought in the airport onto the plane (after security) but only upon boarding did they take the water away, some notice would have been helpful and saved a bunch of waste and money."
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "Just a small plane, subject to turbulence. Not much that can be done, though if they ever redo the seats for a little more cushioning, that would be nice."
Pros: "Everything fine"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight attendant was super awesome. She was personable and had a great attitude. I didnt get her name, but she was by far the best! Blonde lady, smelled wonderful, very refreshing and funny conversation...(Ua1412 to LaGuardia) yeah yeah! Amazing!"
Cons: "I wanted the salami and cheese crackers but the flight wasn’t given any, so I chose the veggie smash/pita bread/quinoa/almond thing. Not too bad, but definitely no match for salami and cheese crackers. You know?"
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take the flight."
Cons: "They didn't get me to New York. Our original aircraft was stolen to use for another flight. So we needed to wait for another plane that wasn't due until 90 minutes after our scheduled departure. This second plane had maintainence issues. After 4 hours waiting I got on a Delta flight."
Pros: "My legs were very uncomfortable to sit"
Cons: "seats were too close"
Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "People were polite."
Cons: "I got my flight switched earlier. Paid $57 for it. Then this flight got delayed almost 2 hours so I ended up in NYC at the same time and it threw off my whole work day."
Cons: "Comfort, service.., terrible'"
Pros: "They let people get on with oversize bags when sequence 4&5 get on there's no room left"
Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."
Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Pros: "It was also 2 hours late."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and argued with me for not saying thank you to him after he gave me water. I had actually said Thank you but he didn't hear it. I don't mind saying it again."
Pros: "The flight was smooth for such a small jet and the attendant was so pleasant and kind. I was very pleased with the experience over all."
Cons: "It was just a personal preference. The snack was an Asian mix and it was something I didn't care for but honestly it hardly impacted the experience at all."
Pros: "I liked the free entertainment I could watch on my iPad."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour going to NYC and were delayed 3.5 hours going back to Chicago. Terrible and exhausting."
Cons: "There was confusion on where to go check luggage and what duty free items could be carried on board."
Cons: "Old plane. An almost two hour delay taking off once we had boarded the plane. Terrible in flight entertainment options. 30 minutes straight of turbulence just before and while landing."
Pros: "Communicated things as they unfolded"
Cons: "The air traffic control issues on both ends of the flight...we had to divert to a different airport, and there was only one option for transportation and a long line to figure it out, so since it was so late, I gave up and ended up paying a hefty cab fee. The airline should have been ready with cards or info about how to get reimbursed, considering everyone's unique travel situations. Simply a shuttle back to Kahaurdia was not helpful..."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "The flight was short so no entertainment was needed. After the nightmarish flight I had just endured it felt like first class accommodations."
Cons: "Many hours of delays from and to.."
Cons: "United changed my flight 3 times, due to "traffic control", then I almost missed my flight altogether because the last update they sent me was incorrect. Luckily I showed up to the check in desk early, or what I thought was early, they were at final boarding and almost didn't let me on the flight. The crew was helpful but indignate. Flight 1968, no Bueno."
Pros: "I like the way the crew was very professional with the rude, obnoxious man sitting next to me. Not once did anyone lose their cool with him."
Cons: "The rude man sitting next to me. He was just so obnoxious and acted entitled as if he owned the flight."
Cons: "The flight No one knew what was going on. My bag made it in earlier than I did. Everyone I talked to was unhelpful. Staff was not able to deliver my bag overnight. Had to go back to the airport. Cannot stress enough that no one knew what was going on."
Pros: "I got stuck in security but the United staff waited for me to board. I am grateful they went the extra mile because I chose to fly that day in order to make it to an important event."
Cons: "When i originally boarded the flight i notices that the person next to me was an obese person that was taking over half of my seat when i went to the flight attendant and informed her she said she might not be able to do anything cause the flight was full. When door was about to close i noticed an empty seat and took. The thing that upset me is if there not been an empty seat i would have had to seat in a seat where there was no space and still would have paid the same as a person that is taking part of my seat and the flight attendant didbt even seem to care."
Cons: "The economy seats are obnoxiously small."
Cons: "My flight we canceled to LGA due to "weather". Every other airline had flights going to New York on schedule. To me, the reason was unbelievable. I was moved to a flight 12 hours later, at 540am. Not only was my flight time changed but I was now flying into a completely different airport. I had to stay in a hotel and pay $70 because United doesn't pay for a hotel if the cancellation is due to weather. I am outraged by this sudden change in plans. I will never fly United again and I will spread the word to everyone I know."
Cons: "No UBS charger on the plane!!!!!. I I cannot believe it . Not even in business class. Boarding always sucks. Wwhen will they ever learn that people can comfortably wait in the waiting area instead of being stacked up in front of the plane waiting for others to put their luggage away? It's ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "What are they charging for, I fail to grasp, No help in check in, pay for every bag you check in, pay for seat if you choose yr own, overpriced tickets, no meals, cramped seating. Worst airlines in the world."
Pros: "It was good , on time and quick destinations"
Cons: "Could be free wifi"
Pros: "Food, atmosphere, people!"
Cons: "Nothing not to like!"
Pros: "I like that my flight arrive on time. I mist say before a time and that was really good. I like almost everything about it."
Pros: "Again very skilled pilot in windy weather"
Cons: "Had to stand on bridge in crazy cold weather to pick up plane side check in. Just unfortunate"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and friendly."
Pros: "Every one was friendly. The plane was clean"
Pros: "The Crew was wonderful, warm and engaging. Made my fiancé and I feel comfortable."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment kept cutting out on me, I was watching a movie and never got to see the end because of connectivity issues."
Cons: "I have an 8 yr old boy & he & I were seated apart. The flight was packed, then we were seated together but there were 2 pairs including us that had duplicate seats. Needless to say the flight was delayed because the grumpy stewards couldn't fix the situation. The door was reopened so that the fate agent could finally resolve things. Stressful before a very turbulent flight, not fun, I'll never fly United again."
Cons: "Stop with the united airlines video. I bought the in-flight tv package but the in-flight United Airlines video, not the mandatory safety video, caused me to miss the end of my game. I don't care about seeing a commercial I'm already a customer."
Cons: "-Flight was 2 hours delayed getting to the gate because they kept saying they were "bringing it from the hangar." Does it really take 2 hours to bring a plane from the hangar? And why didn't they bring it before our scheduled departure? -Flight was then delayed another 1.5 hours because the fueler put too much fuel on the plane so we had to wait for them to send out another fueler to take fuel off. -Meanwhile, I was late for work and almost got fired because of this mistake. -They then proceeded to put my luggage on the wrong airplane so once we landed I had to wait another 1-2 hours for my luggage to arrive. -Meanwhile, all gate attendants had terrible attitudes when dealing with customer. I will never fly United again."
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay that started with maintenance again (this happened on 2 of 3 flights for this trip), that further delayed with the plane being late and de-icing for the weather. No in-flight entertainment and smaller seating than jet blue, yikes."
Pros: "Plane was sub-standard. Bad lavatory. Stewardesses gave wrong info about arrival terminal Only small toilet in rear of plane. No toilet in front Very bad experience"
Cons: "The turbulence was nuts, crew was rough, food was none!"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice because they could not find a crew member/pilot. This was extremely unprofessional and I ended up having to get a flight with american airlines instead and they were awesome. Will never fly with united airlines ever again."
Pros: "Airline staff were friendly. Flight to O'Hare arrived late but what can u do? On flight to laguadia , I got no snacks and no soft drinks. economy class was like a sardine can"
Pros: "The service was quick by flight attendants, 5 minutes in the air we were served immediately. Then people were sleeping and relaxing. Thank you"
Pros: "On time. Clean equipment."
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "The pilot flew fast once we were actually in the air."
Cons: "First, the ol' Bait n Switch on my actual seat selection. "Sir, when you buy a ticket, purchase the "request" for a window seat." Was what I was told at the podium. So middle seat it was. Then there was a 3.5 hour delay... we taxied on the runway for 2 hours before taking off. Yep, another day on United."
Pros: "On time arrival and departure"
Cons: "Boarding process awkward. I liked the 5 lanes, but once on the plane it took a long time for people to load their carry-ons. I was seated in an aisle and was in boarding group 2......??"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
