Airline reviews

Cons: "Canceled flight"

Pros: "Someone greeted me ..."
Cons: "For the check-in crew to be more enthusiastic, helpful, engaging and going above and beyond for their clients…"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Although there was an issue with a passengers’ dog(who ultimately had to be asked off, before we could leave). It was handled quickly and our flight departed on time."
Cons: "The entertainment didn’t work/have a signal until our descent to land."

Pros: "Everything is always great on Jetblue"
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "Wonderful wheel chair service."

Cons: "I was not on it"

Pros: "Everything about the flight operated smooth and comfortably. Efficient boarding, surprised and delighted to have inflight entertainment for such a short flight where most other airlines use older planes without tv/movies."
Cons: "did my pre flight check in at about 3pm for my 8:50pm flight. I didnt immediately receive my boarding pass via text but figured it’d come in the next 4hrs. It didn’t and I had to go through the line for a paper pass, then at about 11pm when I was already home after my flight I received the text containing my boarding pass. Obviously a simple hiccup in an automated process but laughably pathetic in terms of delivering a simple service for paying customers that’s designed to save you, JetBlue, time and money"

Cons: "Plane was delayed 90 minutes for takeoff as it came in late."

Pros: "The pilot was on it, time for some new planes."
Cons: "The plane left the gate 35 min late, went to take off the pilot saw a water leak returned to the gate. Finally fixed than went to leave the gate the 2nd time and there was another malfunction. 2 hours later finally took off. When we landed at lax we had to travel across the runway for quite awhile to our gate where we had to wait another 45 min for the other plane to leave before we could park."

Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"

Pros: "I love everything about Jet Blue"

Pros: "Timely and smooth boarding. On time take off. The staff was very friendly and courteous."

Pros: "Night masked"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude as hell , she looked like she didn’t know what she was doing"

Pros: "Thank you for the leg room! While all the other airlines are packing people on the plane like sardines, thank you for treating your customers, especially the economy customers like human beings. I can’t emphasize enough how much that will affect my travel choice and I am not even a person of big built."
Cons: "The head rest did not have the bending capability so the head can’t rest comfortably to either side while sleeping."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."

Pros: "On time and very friendly crew."

Pros: "Wow - perfect trip from booking to arrival in FLL. Easy website, luggage and assigned seat included. Helpful ground crew in BUF. And the best free inflight wifi. I will book again."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Captain checked in with us regularly. Cabin Crew generous and helpful. Electronics worked. Good legroom."

Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"

Pros: "We made it to our destination in one piece so that's good I guess"
Cons: "Delayed over 3hrs. Didn't get to sit with my wife. They switched movies 30min into the movie that I was enjoying. Attendants seemed annoyed at life in general."

Pros: "Our flight was delayed for a few hours due to mechanical problems. While waiting, they gave us crackers, cheeses, salami, and granola bar plus a drink. Because I missed my connecting flight, Jet Blue put me up at the Embassy Suite when I arrived in Boston. It was a lovely room and the hotel provided snacks in the evening and a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Everyone I dealt with had a very pleasant attitude despite some less than friendly customers."

Pros: "The extra room. The staff was friendly."
Cons: "There could be additional snacks available especially on a flight that’s over 3 hrs. I had a short lay over in JFK and wasn’t able to buy a meal and very limited snacks on board so I left home 2:00 to be early and arrived at my destination at 2:30pm with only chips to eat"

Pros: "Quick flight, television, reasonably price"

Pros: "Pleasant. On time. Friendly. Decent value for money."

Pros: "Amazing fast easy flight with excellent staff on board!"

Pros: "Service and friendly staff"

Pros: "I missed the flight as my first flight got delayed. When I got to the gate there was no Turkishairlines representative. 12 hours after the flight still at airport without any clear answer from Turkish airways."
Cons: "Zero costumer service. Knowing that I might miss my first leg I checked the possible next flights and even though there are two flights next day, the prices tripled in 2 hour (from 1300 to 3900 USD). When I asked for rebook I was told that there is no available seat in any of those two flights. Did a quick search and found out there are seats but are left to milk desperate passengers."

Pros: "Easy on, no line organization but not a real problem. Friendly crew. Typical lovely JetBlue experience."

Pros: "Service was phenomenal"

Pros: "Easy and clear instructions on boarding."

Pros: "Free internet, great landing."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great trip, but the mini tv wasn't working which was a bummer."

Cons: "No gluten free snacks were served. Maybe have more selection so everyone can enjoy."

Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Counter staff were excellent"
Cons: "Crew were rushed and lacked congeniality Skipped full distribution of snacks due to poor communication"

Cons: "When the flight is cancelled you need to find a solution for those passengers who travelled that day by bus or car just to catch the flight!!! At least a hostel to sleep over night or give them back the money or let them travel with another company...not to wait 12 hours on the airport!!! Thats not professional at all!"

Pros: "friendly crew"

Pros: "What a difference from the cut rare airlines! We had been taking spirit in the past, but am so glad we used jet blue this time. We never got the feeling of just being cattle herded to a destination. Using a real airline is the only way to go!"

Pros: "I really liked how organized the boarding process is and the plan certainly arrived more than 35 minutes in advance which is always a plus on my book."
Cons: "The IFE on board is super outdated. It fells like you're going back in time to the 90s which is very unacceptable these days."

Pros: "Crew was great, the seats are never comfortable"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "As always, the seats in basic economy are as small as possible without actually being standing room only. I'm 5'7" and my knees are only about an inch from the seat back in front of me."

Cons: "Great flight"

Cons: "crj900 from BUF-MSP is a wreck. worn out, uncomfortable seats, cold air coming from floor toes were numb for about 20m after flight. Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, lost comfort+ upgrade I paid for. No excuse for pitch in main cabin on 737-900 ER."

Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."

Pros: "Actual flight"

Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."

Pros: "none"

Pros: "I was trying with a broken arm - the Crew both on the plane and off the plane was wonderful"
Cons: "Would like more food available-not for purchase but with what comes with your flight"

Pros: "Excellent flight with efficient service. Flight was on time and friendly staff"
Cons: "Efficiency"

Pros: "The Delta service desk was great! We wanted to get an earlier flight home and the Delta Rep got us on standby quickly and with a smile."
Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."

Pros: "My upgrade and breakfast were fabulous!"

Cons: "My flight was delayed several times and had to rebook. Total delays were > 6 hours."

Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "The line for printing the pass was not open. I showed up 2 hrs prior. After dealing with the kiosk for more than 1/2 hour. I missed my flight."

Cons: "No help with baggage when boarding the plane, they hurry you up for nothing, because we had to wait 20 mi utes to take off."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."

Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."

Pros: "Smoorh travels"
Cons: "Economy seats mot comfortable for sleeping"

Pros: "to their Diamond Medallion customers"

Pros: "On time. Most important"

Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Cons: "No tv, which is okay, but if you offer wifi to watch movies/shows on your phone, really need outlets to charge the phone! Or at least a few radio station to plug headphones into."

Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Full can of soda"

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"

Pros: "The pilot got us to Dallas ahead of schedule which was a big help because I was concerned about making my connecting flight. The stewardess assured me of the process and said not to worry."

Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"

Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."

Pros: "Old plane - needs scrapping or a refit"

Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."

Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."

Cons: "Why can't the crews in in LGA communicate with the passengers during the boarding process like at other airports so that it won't be a mad mob press to get on the plane. The gate agent using the PA didn't or couldn't enunciate, and folks just 15 feet away were asking what she said."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "The fact that the plane landed."
Cons: "American Airlines is running neck and neck with United, competing for the world’s worst airline. They have crammed so many seats onto their planes that I’m surprised it isn’t a health hazard. I was in an aisle seat and every time I started to fall asleep, someone going down the aisle slammed into me, making any sort of rest impossible. And the flight attendants had the typical U.S. flight attendant perma-rage, of course. I feel sorry for them, underpaid and overworked, but always p***ed off. Anerican Airlines needs to look at Emirates and other non-U.S. carriers to learn how to treat their passengers."

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "It was on time and service was ok.."
Cons: "No individual entertainment...or seat back screen... Not even close to Emirates...paying for seats when plane is half empty....shame on AA...."

Pros: "Crew were very efficient and kind."
Cons: "It was very cold the entire flight."

Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."

Cons: "My seat was considered "Premium." The pull out table was dirty and broken. Was not able to use it for eating or holding a drink. Food was inedible. Plane was old so there were a few screens for the whole cabin. The screen was poorly located so unable to watch programs offered."

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"

Pros: "Quick time in boarding and exiting plane in Charlotte."
Cons: "Frustrating to pay extra for priority boarding so they don't require that my carry on be checked which requires me to take half of my luggage and shove it in my backpack to make sure that it lands with me."

Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."

Cons: "5 hr delay"

Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."

Pros: "Overall, the trip wss very good. I would have given a five star rating if there was enough legroom between seats so that my knees didn't hit the seat in front of me."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost an hour Because all flights were delayed, the waiting area was crowded. Therefore, I sat in the "priority" boarding area. A representative came in and rudely ejected us from the area. I could understand if there were "priority" passengers who needed a seat, but nobody needed those seats. Customer service should have trumped their rules in this instance."

Pros: "The crew was able to seat my husband and I together at the last minute as my husband has mobility issures"
Cons: "The crew seemed like they could care less about the passengers. Choice of either one snack bag of pretzels or a biscotti ~ very minimal. No headphones were offered for the movies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."

Cons: "We waited on tarmac to depart from San Jose Cabo because of an AA paperwork screw up! Tower didn't have same flight info as pilot. The pilot apologized and crew was nice - but I missed my next flight and the replacement flight was delayed 2 hours. Bummer of a way to end an amazing vacation!!"

Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Left on time arrived on time"
Cons: "Air conditioning didn't work on Charlotte to ft wayne leg."

Pros: "Entertainment modules in cabin were nice"
Cons: "Forced to check my bag in at the gate. Upon completion of boarding, there were several empty spaces in the overhead bins, and my bag could have fit easily. Upon arriving in Houston, baggage claim was VERY slow. Small flight of less than 30 people. Southwest had 3 flights arrive and complete baggage claims by the time our bags became available. Airport personnel confirmed that it is typical or normal for American because they operate with a small "skeleton" ground crew. Flight arrived just after 11:20pm,, but wasn't able to head out for transportation until after 12:30am. VERY upset and disappointed with service."

Cons: "Disastrous rescheduling"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"

Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Pros: "I enjoy the plus seats with extra leg room"
Cons: "I found your crew quite unfriendly"

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Flight was quick and uneventful."
Cons: "50 minutes wait on the runway in a very small plane. No room for carry ons"

Cons: "my reservation was cancelled by united with out checking with me."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overbooked, delay in de-planing and getting luggage"

Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "On time Nice crew No complaints"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Cons: "That I never made it to Dallas and so lost my job. Thanks to unitrd."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Cons: "Severe delays. Disorganized boarding procedures. No internet."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "Horrible"

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old. It lacks entertainment amenities. Bolt Bus and Grayhound are luxurious in comparison to this United plane."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."

Pros: "Everything about this flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "Having to pay a baggage fee for the one bag I checked; lack of seat/leg room."

Cons: "The snack offering was not appealing. I understand nut allergy sensitivities but the option was poorly decided."

Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"

Pros: "I was in a wheel chair and the crew in the airport made my transitiins within the airport very easy"
Cons: "."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Dad services they don't care about the passengers"

Pros: "Quick load and exit"
Cons: "Small plane. Dozens of bags taken in jetway so a long wait for delivery. Rough ride throughout"

Pros: "Price looked good at booking."
Cons: "Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"
