flight was delayed

Cons: "Temperature oscillated a lot,"
Pros: "Good seats in economy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in DCA"
Pros: "crew was great."
Cons: "flight was 3 hours late with lame excuse. tray tables disgusting. felt unclean. cookies tasted gross. pa system not working. live flight not working either"
Pros: "Crew is nice, seat space is slightly larger than other airlines"
Cons: "This route (BOS-DCA and back) is ALWAYS delayed. This time it was 3 hours. I should have taken the train!"
Cons: "Not only was our flight delayed two + hours because the crew was delayed (which happens), but then when we landed at midnight, there wasn't a gate open for us. We had to wait another 30 minutes just for a gate. What gives, JetBlue? Did you forget we were coming?"
Pros: "flights on the DCA-BOS route are the 2x2 planes, so no bad seats. Seats are also nice amount of space compared to some airlines."
Cons: "Not really the airline's fault, but there was bad weather on our route so we sat on the plane for 3 hours before we even took off. So for a 1.5 hr flight we were on the plane for 5+ hours."
Cons: "Food and entertainment were Not Applicable."
Pros: "For this flight the rows are just four seats total, two isle seats and two window seats; that means that there are no dreaded middle seats. The seats are larger and more comfortable than many competitors."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours and then once we were on the plane and pulled away from the gate there was a "maintenance issue" so we sat just outside the gate for about 50 mins (bring delay time to three hours). The pilot was a bit worried about weather so there was no snack/drink service."
Pros: "Everyone was boarded early so we departed early. Quick flight with pleasant flight attendants and nice snacks."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no overhead availability due to full flight; entertainment sucked"

Pros: "Flight delayed. Other than that everything was good, friendly crew, TV program on board, drinks and snacks, plus a carry-on item allowed, will use JetBlue more in the future ."
Pros: "Non chaotic boarding, efforts by gate agents to gate check carryon bags to ensure there would be enough space for those bags."
Pros: "Seat room. On time."
Cons: "Too cold to sleep. In flight status screens poor. Map very low resolution."
Pros: "Very easy"
Cons: "Outlets and USB ports would be helpful. Also, the seats are rather narrow. And the soundproofing was less than ideal."

Cons: "Was about 2 hours delayed but due to weather. C’est la vie."
Pros: "Everyone was great, and the communication through the weather delay was excellent."

Cons: "WiFi never worked."
Pros: "Smooth flight ."
Cons: "good flight."
Pros: "Aircraft reassigned to a different flight, departed over 2 hours behind schedule and then the luggage took forever to come out."
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "There was a huge glitch in your ticketing, resulting in me confirming the same ticket 3 times. After calling Jetblue for customer service per your advice, they first suggested to give Jetblue credits for extra tickets. When I insisted that the issue was solely caused by kayak-jetblue ticketing connection issues, they supervisor approved to cancel 2 credit card payments... BUT I have to wait for 2 weeks to see the cancellation on my credit card. Unfair and ridiculous, if you as me."
Pros: "friendly agent."
Cons: "Poorly marked boarding times and announcements. Bottom line, I didn't get on the flight and had to take a flight on an alternative airline."

Pros: "Comfort Price"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Landed exactly on time!"
Cons: "TV's didn't work at all. Hot tea tasted terrible, were you using Boston Harbor water?"
Cons: "I came 40min prior to my flight and found out that it was too late to check in my bag. I rescheduled my flight for $50 fee to make sure I get in in time for my meeting. When I went inside, I found out that my original flight got delayed and was leaving only 15min earlier than my new flight, which then got delayed for another 45min...disaster. Essentially, I paid extra $50 for nothing. In fact, I would have been on my original flight and gotten to my meeting in time had they not had you are on your own attittude toward customers."
Pros: "We had terrible delays and very little transparency in regards to what was going on with the flight. We were stuff on TARMAC without warning for much longer than expected. Overall it took me longer to get from Boston to DC than it took me to get from Spain to Boston. Unacceptable."
Pros: "The plane arrived safely in DC."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight was delayed but it's understandable."

Lots of delays. Armrests are not big enough for two people.

Cons: "None"
Cons: "Top carrier"

Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
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: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Cons: "Wonderful"
Pros: "I love ice cream and chocolate"
Cons: "Healthy vegetarian meal choice"
Pros: "Internet access. Waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat and a tablet to order food & drink."
Pros: "Seat was hard, not much foot space"
Cons: "My wife and Iasked for a snack, it was never delivered"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"
Pros: "Good flight in air"
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Tight seat. Small space."
Pros: "The efficiency of having my boarding pass on my phone (Apple Wallet). The Kayak and Delta apps streamlined perfectly and I was able to check in and pay for luggage through Kayak! I just need to do better at checking my phone due to both apps sending me updates about flight delays and luggage locations"
Cons: "Lack of space from being confined to the middle seat but the passengers next to me were nice and the plane ride was over before I realized it."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was horrible"
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."
Pros: "Thanks to Angel in the ATL airport who helped ensure I had a more comfortable flight. He was very kind and I appreciated his help."
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: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"
Pros: "The movie availability was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Although my TSA Pre check number was on my flight coming into Atlanta, it wss not on my fight leaving Atlanta. That caused me to arrive at my gate 5 mins before boarding time and prevented me from having time to eat breakfast before my flight."
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: "Allowed Pre boarding of infant (which American no longer does), complimentary food, entertainment on domestic flight, and friendly staff. Delta is upping the game!"
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."
Cons: "Delay in leaving from the airport there were issues with Web checkin Crew wasnt able to give me my boarding pass for the connecting flight and kept saying going to the other counter"
Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."
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."
Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"
Pros: "arrived early"
Pros: "Delta always has a nice professional crew. We were served within a reasonable time and I felt comfortable the whole flight."
Cons: "The pressure is the cabin with really bothering me. I've flown several times and never had the pressure to bother me but it was really hurting my head."
Cons: "The process of checking was very poor. One line was serving all of the Delta flights. Agents were very slow. Even when they started to serve my flight with priority still no impruvment. The agent who served me was so lost that he could not find the page with my picture and name in my passport!!!"

having three seats to myself .

Cons: "No pre flight service in first class even though we sat at the gate for an extra 30 minutes."
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for over 40 min waiting for gate"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Weather delay 5 hours"
Cons: "Flight got delayed by 2 hours without specifying the reason. Weather was fine. Happened 2 hours delayed. From DC to Boston too when I took flight on 12th. Will avoid AA flights in future"
Pros: "Seats were not too cramped."
Cons: "Wifi that actually worked."
Cons: "The gate attendant was very hard to understand and so I couldn’t hear what she was saying."
Cons: "that my flight got cancelled and wasn't going out until Saturday and I would have been less than 24 hrs in Boston"
Cons: "my flight kept being pushed back no one said anything my email alerts was quicker"
Pros: "Flight crew were very apologetic"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Miami. Only one flight per day. Had to take a flight to an alternative location, drive for an hour down the coast and take a ferry to my final destination."
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "They let me sleep"
Cons: "Not enough food options"
Pros: "Worst trip ever"
Cons: "Delayed hours , then circled airport on arrival. Then couldn’t deboard because no gate. Hands down worst experience"
Pros: "Ease of boarding with the group numbers"
Pros: "Crew was nice and kept us updated."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 minutes early and we still deboarded 20 minutes LATE. Wifi on flight is ten dollars instead of being free and they use plastic cups for the drinks which I am sure is not recycled."
Pros: "Smooth flight, not too bumpy. Also flew on time and landed early. Free beer"
Cons: "No internet. No tv screens. Jet blue is still better."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No message to call with passengers with kids to board first or any military personnel boarding first."
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
Pros: "Nice flight, great leg room, staff was friendly and flight was on time."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "The flight to Washington was fine. It was the flight back that I have issues with."
Cons: "My issue with flying back American is that...I didn't. They boarded us on the plane, moved down the tarmac, and then checked to see that we had a brake problem. They took our plane out of service (which I get, I would want brakes before takeoff), but then they never updated us on our status, until I physically went to the counter to ask an hour later. This is when they informed me that the flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 9pm flight (Mind you, this is 12:30p and I have a 2 year old with me). Luckily, I was able to book JetBlue and get home earlier (8:00pm)"
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."
Pros: "A little turbulance, but nothing too outlandish."
Cons: "I felt like the Sr. Flight Attendance and the Pilot weren't on the same page. -Pilot: "Everyone remain seated" -Sr. Flight Attendant: "We are now going to start serving refreshments" Not sure what was going on there, but at least we arrived safely."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, the window had a leak, the TV was too far away and the sound system to watch the movie was broken. When the plane is in that poor of a condition, it's time to replace it. F."
Pros: "Nice modern plane. Even though the flight was delayed, we ended up boarding earlier than expected and arrived pretty close to our original expected arrival time."
Cons: "The crew was nice and everything, but they weren't very good at making announcements on the loudspeaker. You could tell they didn't really know what they were saying or haven't practiced. One lady was trying to make a sales pitch for a new master card and you could tell she was reading and there were long pauses. My sense is that when using the loudspeaker to talk to the entire flight, one should be practiced and know what they're saying and communicate quickly and efficiently. Don't mean to be critical, but it's something that I noticed that could be improved."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours- weather related, but at other destinations- so this flight had to wait to be rescheduled. Also they weren't able to give any idea when the flight would be boarding- they just kept sending text alerts that it was delayed another half hour and no updates were listed on the screens. When the flight finally left, after I had been waiting for over 5 hours, we were told that they would be flying low, so there would be no beverage service. It would be nice in these situations to simply have bottled water to pass out quickly, or make the announcement prior to boarding so people would be able to bring their own beverages."
Pros: "Good meals"
Cons: "Not much legroom. Good movie shown but would have like personal options like other airlines."
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "Got me there eventually"
Cons: "One hour delay"
Pros: "Flight crew somehow noticed that we had someone in our party who could use some extra consideration. They pre boarded us as a result! They were also extra considerate during the flight."
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Cons: "Airline had no gates at destination and made us sit on board for an hour after landing. Should have been protactive and found air stairs to disembark instead of forcing passengers stuck on hot plane."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I was not able to seat with my son, I was not very happy about it."
Pros: "That I got home safely"
Cons: "From the get go it was an awful experience ... I travel with an emotional support animal as does my husband because we don't do well with flying. I have anxiety to the max about it & my husband gets ulcerative colitis flare ups any time he's stressed out which is usually while we fly and having our dogs with us turkey makes us feel better. When I called to tell them over the phone we would have our emotional support animal I got an attitude as if I hadn't been doing this for the last 4 years. She reiterated to me that we needed in addition to the letterhead from the doctor a form filled out (which we both did ) . Brought to the airport and sit had to sit at the counter like the girl didn't know what she was doing. Fast forward to finally getting to the gate after being stressed and our flight was delayed. This now only made our 50 min layover in DC 20 min by the time we landed. We ran from one gate to the next hoping we wouldn't miss our flight and when we got there they wouldn't let us on the plane saying things like "your dogs are not on this flight" "there is no documentation" "well then you must not have the right paperwork" ... in front of a bunch of people in line, out of breath, and now embarrassed I am forced to take out my folder and give them all the paperwork I had just given to the customer service desk before our first flight. They let everyone on the plane and still made us stand there and finally said "just go but your dogs aren't on this flight". Fast forward AGAIN to sitting on the flight the flight attendant comes over and says "guys where's you carrier the dogs need to be under the seats" .. we peoceeded again to explain for the seventh time that they were emotional support animals ... she then proceeded "no they are not they are not even listed on this flight" at this point I'm EXTREMLY embarrassed because people on the plane are paying attention and drawing attention to us but not only that ... I have been doing this for years .. I ALWAYS have the proper documentation as does my husband and we have never ran into this kind of disappointment and embarrassment from any airline until now. I was so stressed out to begin with and this deffinately didn't help ... nor did it make us wants to fly on American again. I felt pushed aside, embarrassed, and belittled by multiples employees ... all because the first employee clearly made a mistake and didn't document things correctly ... that should have never been put on us ."
Pros: "Excellent aircraft. EJR190. Not big but very comfortable aircraft. AA has decided to give actual leg room. Nice experience even in the back of the aircraft."
Cons: "AA needs to work on boarding logistics at LaGuardia. It's confusing to have to shuttle across the tarmac to another terminal. If the flight times had been closer I would not have arrived in time to board."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew are nice with the people"
Cons: "Too crowded not able to take my other luggage on board."
Pros: "Good experience all around."
Cons: "15 minutes late. No big deal though"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Cons: "Worse customer service ever inside and outside the plane. Try he daughter was traveling with a 3 year old and they didn't want to change their seats together are u kidding me my daughter had to be asking in the plane but they did it for other people."
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "100 degree plans before taking off for mechanical reasons. Upon arrival it looked like a refugee camp in baggage claim area. A bunch of bags unclaimed scattered about. The screen said carousel 12 and confirmed it with local reps and then after waiting for a while some passenger says "if you're coming from Charlotte the bags are at 11, that's where I found mine". The miracle of flight is a miracle. I rarely complain but more often than not when flying domestically I realize how stretched the airlines are."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to see that I was seated easily before the crowd came on board."
Cons: "The cookies are ok but not very refreshing. I prefer Pepsi to Coke. Being in a wheel chair, I didn't have the option to stop at a food place to get something to eat before boarding. It was so extremely cold in the cabin."
Cons: "American Airlines would not allow my teenage daughter to check in and board her flight because she was three minutes late getting to the airport for the check in time (1 hour prior to flight). (Traffic was backed up due to an accident). She was not checking a bag and had plenty of time to go through security and get to the gate without holding up the plane. She would have been waiting at the gate to board. American Airlines would not budge. Instead, they wanted to put a teenage girl on standby through two flights and two airports with no guarantee she wouldn't be spending a night at the airport. They would not reimburse the ticket either. The AA person I talked with was no peach either. While on the phone with my daughter, I purchased a direct flight from Southwest to get her home. She had the same amount of time (1 hour) to shuttle to another terminal, check in, go through security and board the plane. No problem doing all that with the same time frame and Southwest was happy to help her out."
Cons: "There should have been food for purchase."
Pros: "The extra legroom for economy plus seats"
Cons: "The food was tiny and not good"
Cons: "Free high speed Wifi. More room / comfort"
Pros: "Most uncomfortable plane that I've ever been on"
Cons: "Seat space"
Cons: "Not being delayed for 2 hours"
Cons: "Reliability"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late flight No room for bags for Group 2 in bulkhead row"
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: "Not much although the small meal/snack was solid. Also they didn’t lose or kill any animals as far as know."
Cons: "WiFi did not work. Flight attendants didn’t really care. No way to watch TV unless you pay."
Pros: "Good. Seating. Not too crowded"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "United personnel were very helpful under really miserable circumstances. They did everything in their power to rush me to flights that were seriously delayed due to severe weather on January 4th."
Cons: "The long delays! The kicker was when we waited 2.5 hours for technicians to repair broken in-flight restrooms. Flights that were supposed to be completed in five hours were finished in 10. Noone's fault, but I did not enjoy that part."
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."
Cons: "THere was no entertainment"
Pros: "We flew for only 45 minutes on a flight that had been scheduled for 1.3 hours."
Cons: "The long delay seemed strange, as the plane had arrived from Costa Rica. Why would an airline schedule the same plane for an international flight and then a short hop from Newark to DC without adequate time in between? The departure gate at Newark was absolute chaos! Announcements were overlapping and not understandable. There was inadequate seating."
Pros: "Refund was prompt"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew from the ticket agents all the way up were great. The app for iPhone is great."
Cons: "I paid for 30 minutes of WiFi to download the United app on my iPad. I wanted to watch the movies/tv shows that were available to passengers. The WiFi was spotty and slow so I wasn’t able to load the app. Needless to say I was disappointed. I also was disappointed with the seating. I am an average size person and I felt very cramped in my seat. My shoulders and neck are killing me after a 2 hour flight. I know that I chose the economy seating but I don’t remember the seats being quite so narrow or the leg room being non existent."
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "A very tall, male, flight attendant very wonderfully took me almost all the way from one end of the horseshoe to the other. I didn't catch his name but he was SO helpful."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by a few minutes and by the time we got to San Francisco, boarding was almost done for my connecting flight. I had to literally run from one end of the United terminals to the other... the entire horse shoe."
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."
Pros: "Seemed like an older jet, so the seats felt larger and more comfortable than most newer aircraft these days. I was surprised they could land a 757 at DCA, but we did!"
Pros: "Got home earlier than planned because I was able to get on an earlier flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Got re-seated into a non-recline, bulkhead exit row. For a tall guy like me that's a death sentence on a 6h flight that's delayed extra at the end of a day"
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."
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"
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."
Cons: "They had flight delay issues and WE got pushed onto a next day flight but WE had to pay for our hotel when it was their planes delayed!"
Pros: "It was perfect flight by all means"
Cons: "Honestly, I am not a big fan of United right now and their airline policies. The flight was delayed for a hour. But at least I wasn't dragged off the plane or stuck in 95 degree weather for 5 hours."
Pros: "Flash for mac did not install"
Cons: "I felt like I was on my way to my death"
Pros: "Punctual departure, arrival ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The man in front of me thought it was obvious that he should enjoy 130% space, leaving me with 70%. I couldn't even read my magazine. I've paid full price for my seat. Slow service. Half an hour wait for baggage claim."
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: "It was a quick flight. The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "United"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight but overall it was a really good flight."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays sand discomfort!"
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: "Not impressed with United - they are just going down hill in evert aspect"
Cons: "Not impressed with United - they are just going down hill in evert aspect"
Pros: "Good crews."
Cons: "The UA439 flight from Boston to Chicago was delayed for almost 4-hours."
Pros: "Flight was stuck on the ground for 2 hrs because of a generator issue, so I missed my connection. The United app nicely pre-booked me on the next flight to my destination without my having to do anything, which was cool. Internet didn't work but they refunded my purchase."
Cons: "The legroom is so much worse than jetBlue (which I usually fly) I almost couldn't believe it. Because of the generator issue the flight ended up being almost 9 hours. They ran out of ALL FOOD for purchase except chips (which they didn't even offer for free despite everything), so those of us in the back of the aircraft had our choice of a bag of chips for $4, or no food for 9 hours. Also, I paid $20 for the internet for the entire flight but it only worked for the first hour so I couldn't do any work."
Pros: "I was so impressed with the captain and flight attendants handling the engine problems we had that sent us back to the gate for maintenance at Boston. They were calm and professional and (as a fearful flyer) I felt confident the captain was absolutely making sure we were safe to progress."
Cons: "It was so hot on the plane!!! It would have been awesome if they would have passed out water."
Pros: "Able to sleep the whole way"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "Our flight home we couldn't land in Chicago due to storms and diverted to Madison. Sat on Tarmac 2 hours and some passengers from Madison allowed to end journey there. We had to wait for that approval and again had to wait for their luggage to be removed from the plane. My opinion is let them disembark but not the luggage. It was too long to be in that plane"
Cons: "Arrived at 1:30 AM"
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: "It's was a very pleasant flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Long waiting time to get luggafe"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4.5 HOURS due to lazy attempts at calculating how much fuel was required with weather systems. We stopped to refuel in Minneapolis for a very long time, despite assurances it would only take ~20 minutes."
Cons: "After three on-time flights from the other side of the world, I was stuck in Chicago for a 3 hour delay. The flight finally arrived at Reagan 2 minutes after the runway closed so we were rerouted to a different airport where we finally landed 4 hours late."
Pros: "One crew member for the baggage crew was helpful."
Cons: "They lost my luggage which I had to put my medication on. I ended up needing to go to the emergency room to get the medication."
