This was the Delta Shuttle flight (operated by Republic Airways (therefore not a mainline flight)). The crew was exceptional in expediting boarding, accommodating customers, and politely dealing with “difficult” passengers (don’t be that passenger - it’s a 40 minute flight). Great flight overall.
It was hard to hear the PA announcements for boarding. Maybe also post the info on the screen? Or allow the attendant to pull down his mask when speaking into the PA system?
Lots of delays. Armrests are not big enough for two people.
Pros: "Seat very v=comfotable"
Pros: "Plane was new and equipped"
Cons: "In first class we had beef jerky for breakfast"
Pros: "Sanitized, open middle seats, comfortable"
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 40+ minutes due to our gate being blocked by another plane. We almost missed our connection and had to run through the airport with our luggage and the staff at our second gate yelling “hurry up” at us like it was our fault."
Pros: "Everything! the best part was that the they kept the middle seat empty!"
Pros: "Don’t go overboard"
Cons: "Good for now"
Cons: "The flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "It’s time to update the snacks, bu thank you for serving more than just peanuts. I was very cold on the flight - unusual, but definitely very chilly."
Cons: "During this trip all my flights got delayed and I was told that I could not get a hotel room and had to pay for myself."
Pros: "Entertainment. Flight attendants. Food"
Cons: "PROBLEM WITH LOCATING BAGGAGE CAROUSEL. GIVEN WRKNG LICATION ."
Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Pros: "The crew was polite and pleasant unlike the crew from KC to Boston."
Cons: "Telling us to check bags before we get to our seat and find out there is no more room."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Pilots were attentive to kids and answered questions. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "They didn't have some of their food options (and they apologized for that up front), but then ran out of the others by the time they got half way through the plane. That was tough for a five hour flight that went through dinner time."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and I got extra Biscoff Cookies"
Cons: "Great trip"
Cons: "The flight attendants were quick with the pick up of drinks. I had only been served my drink for five minutes and they were already coming around to pick up trash."
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Only water and coffee available. Flight had been delayed over an hour."
Pros: "Ryan was great! Very nice and professional, would love to see him on a future flight."
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Pros: "Smooth flights and in time. Everyone is so nice. True professionals"
Pros: "Good flight in air"
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent. The plane was comfortable, as usual. The choice of snacks is great!"
Cons: "Actually, everything was fine. No need for improvement .... even the airfare was great!"
Pros: "Good service this morning"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Cons: "I understand Mother Nature causes issues tkayakhat no one can control but when I'm receiving updates from the 3rd party travel app that isn't the airline before receiving any information directly from the airline via the gate agent or Deltas travel app and the gate agent not being able to verify the 3rd party travel app something is wrong."
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Pros: "on time, good food, good films enough space to sleep in economy."
Cons: "the stewardess only went up one side of the plane offering eye shades and when i asked for one she seemed really miffed."
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Pros: "Your entertainment system is fabulous!"
Cons: "We purchased a direct flight from Boston to Tampa. We paid extra for the convenience of a direct flight Our flight was changed without notification to a connecting flight that was leaving 10 minutes earlier and arriving 2 hours later. Due to malfunction with the kiosk and not a sufficient amount of agents at check in, we missed our flight by 4 minutes. The gate agent seemed to enjoy telling us, with our 10 month old baby, that we were too late. Our baggage, including car seat, had been loaded on the plane. We were reassigned to a flight the following morning. We missed a full day with family, had to travel back home without a car seat and return to the airport the following day. I was shocked and disappointed that not single Delta agent was accommodating or remotely helpful while we were at the airport. I've never had a problem with Delta before. We travel on regularly and would like to continue using Delta. I would like a voucher for my next Delta trip."
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "Complimentary snack mini-meal. Early departure and arrival. Availability of extra seat and elbow room. Free movies."
Cons: "Entertainment screen would not tilt to comfortable angle when passenger in front of me reclined his seat, and the screen/system stopped functioning properly near end of flight."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "Everything was just right"
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "First class seat was uncomfortable and had very little padding. Meal service was not good. No drinks offered."
Pros: "The crew was great as was the check in crew."
Cons: "The comfort of the seat and leg space."
Cons: "Fue de lo peor, viaje a Bos a SAL , haciendo escala en NJ , los vuelos súper mega retrasados, pero el más retrasado fue el NJ a SAL , supuestamente iban. A compensar con alimentos pero lo único que dieron fue una galleta vencidas, y una bebida no más mal servicio, no lo recomiendo viajar en UNITED"
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by an hour and thirty minutes because it was coming from another airport where it was delayed."
Cons: "Food could have been provided"
Cons: "They made us wait for a group of passengers who caused a 50-minute delay."
Cons: "I paid $100 for an upgrade on a United which turned out to be the first row, and right beside the rest room (which was erroneously showing as occupied for the first 20 minutes). The traffic made it feel like I was sitting on a bench in Grand Central Station. I chose an aisle seat but ended up mysteriously in the middle seat. I had extra leg room but if I’d eaten the free 5 pretzels I wouldn’t have been able to fit it my seat any longer. The WiFi wasn’t working for the first hour of the flight. The flight attendant got really annoyed when we didn’t look up when he came by with beverages the first time. We all had headphones on and were looking at our personal screens. The activity by the rest room was constant so we didn’t notice it wasn’t just someone waiting for the loo. The luggage took so long to come out I thought my conference would be over before I got it. Overall, I thought it was bad and confirmed why I don’t fly United. Old, dingy planes, poor service. The pilot was pleasant and communicative so there was at least that..."
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "The seating area is very tight and the aisles were extremely narrow."
Pros: "Great plane and crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice"
Pros: "The crew was attentive, professional, and courteous"
Cons: "5 hour delay"
Pros: "I found it appalling that on a 6 hour flight there were not only no complimentary alcoholic beverages, but that the price of a mini bottle of wine was $9!!!! Ridiculous."
Cons: "One complimentary alcoholic beverage."
Pros: "Great take off and landing. My ears were not even plugged up after landing. Great piloting skills by the crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Salmon and rice."
Cons: "Tvs not working and staff pretending as if they would fix it but actually the problem been going for a while with that airplane. The pizza should not only be a vegetarian one ."
Pros: "The flight from BOS to NEW was great. Great plane, great crew. The flight from NEW to BOZ was not great. The seats were not as comfortable. The staff was not helpful but the were friendly."
Cons: "They skipped our row for beverage and breakfast. Never offered food. Didn't even know they were serving others. We paid for an upgrade for economy plus and got less than economy. Also the inflight entertainment was down. 4.5 hr flight and you had to pay for wifi if you didn't bring a book. 2 young kids , one phone and a long flight means unhappy customers."
Pros: "Professional staff and clean seat with smooth pilot who was not constantly announcing things"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Good. Seating. Not too crowded"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice, and although our flight was delayed and hour and fifteen minutes and our layover was an hour and fifteen minutes, we were able to make our connection! Since our connection to Portland in Denver was the last flight of the night, they were able to hold it for us. This was wonderful because there weren’t many flights out that weren’t booked solid for the next day. The attendants on this flight were great about updating us with information for the connections and telling us when we would land in Denver."
Cons: "The plane was delayed over an hour for cleaning. It was frustrating to say the least."
Pros: "The flight was short and sweet. However, the customer service rep checking me in at Logan could have been much more friendly. I was bringing my parents lobster from Maine, and I ended up having to check my box of lobster. I have a United Explorer card and a Chase Sapphire Preferred card and I was juggling my luggage and had to sit my money clip wallet on the counter. Since I had cash in my wallet, the customer service rep abruptly told me, “we don’t accept cash.” I have been flying for most of my life and I know that you have to pay for baggage fees with a credit card. This interaction was disappointing to say the least."
Cons: "No beverage service."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, very friendly and helpful. the pilot announcements were unintelligible. I appreciated that the crew anticipated that overhead luggage space would run out and offered gate checking of luggage all the way through to my final destination. I took advantage of their offer and it made my connections so much quicker and smoother"
Cons: "The room for seating is way to crowded, I need more leg room and don't feel I should have to pay extra for a minimum requirement for air travel. Beverages were skimpy, should be offered more often."
Cons: "How can you fly hundreds people across the nation in a 100 million dollar aircraft but not know who to reset the router on the wifi? Bait and switches. They should never advertise it if they can't get it to work."
Cons: "The delay in my flight and that nothing was done to compensate that my entire schedule had to be redone to meet the needs of late air crafts, not enough fule and cargo doors not being able to shut."
Cons: "Took 3 days to deliver my case. They have daily flights. Very poor."
Cons: "Took 3 days to get home got stuck in a hotel pregant stuck between airport and planes for 2 days makes me never want to fly again horrible experience"
Cons: "Sat in the middle of two people who took up part of my seat too."
Pros: "I liked the comfort that the plane gave. I also enjoyed the fact that the crew was all very friendly and kind."
Cons: "There was no music or free tv to watch on flight. There were delays due to high traffic."
Pros: "Took off late but landed on time"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. Hot on board."
Cons: "1. Comfort: the headrest on these seats is so uncomfortable! It just props your head forward and causes a lot of neck strain. For most short haul flights, this is not a big deal, but it really makes for an unpleasant journey on the cross-country flights. Also, the four-seat middle section is so poorly designed. There is no way to store personal items under seats without invading the space of your neighbor because the metal frame supporting the row of seats doesn't match with the seats themselves. 2. Entertainment: United could not support continuous streaming of movies/TV shows for every passenger. My movie paused and froze so frequently that I gave up on finishing it and then felt like I had wasted my time. The speed and reliability reminded me of trying to watch movies on a dialup connection. It would be so much better to just have the TV screens built into the seats. All in all, United got a bad batch of planes and should try to take this into consideration when working with Boeing/Airbus on the next order."
Pros: "Flash for mac did not install"
Cons: "I felt like I was on my way to my death"
Cons: "was supposed to originally leave on Friday April 21st at 7:00 pm, was delayed until 10:45 pm, so I decided to take Saturday April 22nd at 10 AM, and even that was delayed until 11 AM. very crappy"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and security checking bag at gate"
Cons: "Check in kiosk couldn't scan phone was glad to unload my carry-on and check it for free. Should be encouraged to check 1 bag for free from start for smaller bags. Flight attendant was crabby when I tried to squeeze past into my seat. She kind of apologized by being nicer to me after that. They kind of yelled at passengers to take their seats to take off. I liked United. Too bad about the incident I read about. I was on a flight with no available seats to LA and thought someone had taken my seat. Turns out I was reading it wirong on my phone abd the last seat available was actually mine."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight but overall it was a really good flight."
Cons: "Flights was delayed and connection was unable to be made. My younger brother is now im limbo in newark nj and is not getting much help at all. Very dissapointed in united. He may have to spend the night in the airport they said. Smh"
Pros: "I have no complaints. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Flight left right on time and we even arrived in Cleveland 30 mins early. It was a full flight and was even overbooked, I volunteered to take another flight to provide room but then it turned out I was able to take the last seat. Small but clean airplane."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "they switched our flight in boston to another flight which was totally inconvenient. then the connecting flight was delayed so we had a three hour layover. then they switched the terminal and flight time to an hour earlier than posted w/o our knowledge. that flight left and we were stranded in new jersey airport until 6 am the next day and had to rebook. now we will have to make another stop in san Francisco's before getting to portland oregon a day late. total joke."
Pros: "Rebooking me on another flight was uncomplicated."
Cons: "We had a long delay in Boston that resulted in missing my connection. I only had 10 minutes from gate to gate to make my connection. I understand that the FAA levies heavy fines on planes every minute that they are late. If so, how does it explain the delay in Boston of almost an hour? Needless to say, I was NOT happy."
Pros: "The flight was bumpy but otherwise pleasant"
Cons: "There was a rude passenger that yelled at me as I was exciting the flight suggesting that I cut her off as we were getting off the plane thinking that I took her bag. It was outrageous and completely ruined the flight for me. I realize this has nothing to do with the flight but it just made me feel so crumby and attached that I felt the need to share it. Also the leg room was a joke. We barely had any room to move. I probably won't fly coach on united again due to the bad taste it left in my mouth. Unfortunate because it's hub is in chicago."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "There was some sort of mix up with seat assignments two guys had the same seat assignment. The very nice gentleman who was sitting in my seat due this stood and allowed me to have my seat as it was on the isle and I was in boarding group 5 and my seat was all the way at the end by the bathrooms and needed to be able to stretch my legs into the isle. There was absolutely no leg room what so ever. The dude next to me spent the entire trip jabbing me in the side with his elbow so that he could access what little space I did have. I was unable to move my legs because every two seconds the entire plane was trekking to the back to use the bathroom, because while there was a third bathroom on the plane towards the front, for whatever reason nobody seemed to be using it."
Cons: "I missed my flight to San Diego from a connecting flight by a few minutes. Now I have to sit in the airport for over three hours waiting for my next flight.. not to mention it's my bday. Thanks United."
Cons: "Because United scheduled flights without regard to airport Construction in Boston my flight was changed 3 times and I still missed my connecting flight. After I missed my flight, they refused to schedule me on the next available flight even though people behind me were scheduled because they were preferred customers. They refused to pay for my hotel and the customer service was rude arrogant and dismissive. I will absolutely never fly United again. The crew on the Boston flight to Newark was lovely everything beyond that was absolutely abhorrent. We got to our connecting flight exactly as boarding closed and they refused to let 11 people board. And subsequently, United staff was rude to us saying it wasn't their fault."
Pros: "Once flight began it ran quite smooth"
Cons: "I chose seats when I booked the tickets. So... Not quite sure how both myself and my partner didn't end up seated together, and both ended up in a middle seat sandwiched between 2 overweight people... Are you little people profiling to break up the overwhelming number of big people? another couple with 2 kids were also broken up into distant areas on the plane. I know everyone complains about so many things, and this wasn't the end of the world, but still, it's not ideal. The seating/etc seemed more disorganized than usual for this flight."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "I really didn't like how the TVs were running to make you think you could watch whatever you want but then you had to pay. No one is going to pay for such a short flight, it would be really nice to offer it for free."
Cons: "They mis-tagged my bag and still haven't found it and have not been helpful or informative when I call to check the status"
Pros: "Except for the boarding process, the flight went smoothly, the crew was friendly and I had no problems."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. I was issued a boarding pass with "see agent" instead of a seat assignment listed. When I saw the United agent at the gate I was told "don't worry we'll find you a seat." I was confused because I felt that I was treated as if I was flying stand by when in reality I booked my ticket in advance. Everything worked out in the end--I was one of the last on the plane but I got a seat and had no issues with finding a place for my carry-on--however, I prefer having an assigned seat to avoid the anxiety of not knowing what is going on during the boarding process."
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess with an adjacent gate exiting at the time of boarding creating a melee of people crossing queues. You have a carry-on baggage policy - stick to it. I wasn't carrying any roll-ons or large items but many of my fellow passengers were carrying multiple items in the hope of either getting them on or having them checked for free. Complete shambles with later boarders running up and down the aisle trying to fit their carry-ons into overhead lockers. Solution: Enforce one item only; Apply free checked items at the gate early. Apply a fee for items that don't fit and were not offered up for checking."
Pros: "United doesn't care about customers, It was nothing to like about this flight over four hours late, the flight went to it's destination and came back, seems like every other United flight was canceled, Dora huge line about 2 to 3 hours long to get you an agent, there were no hotels available, slept in the airport"
Cons: "Flight over four hours late, had to sleep in the airport on the chairs, because there was no hotels left, United didn't offer anything, I'm really displeased with them"
Cons: "For reasons known only to them, United managed to separate the reservations of my wife and mine. Having paid for the trip with the Mileage Plus Explorer card, the first checked bag is free for each traveler. At the kiosk check-in at Logan, the machine wanted to bill us $25 to check my wife's bag. It took another 20 minutes to get this rectified."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Plane aisle was a tight squeeze with carry on bag plus seats were very close together, and I'm a small person at 5'1". Otherwise flight was good."
Cons: "Recently United decided to cancel all of their flights to Denver due to an April snow storm. United was the only company that chose to cancel rather than delay flights. Our flight was cancelled 24 hrs before any snow fell. Their solution was to offer us another flight over 72 hrs out. After spending 6 hrs on the phone with this company (not exaggerating) I feel entitled to say that this company holds zero accountability or concern for their customers. We had to spend an additional $500 to get to our destination last minute through JetBlue."
