A couple young ladies in the rear cabin crew were having loud personal conversations during the middle of the flight when most passengers were trying to sleep. It was not very considerate.
The obvious, the seats are too small. Great flight and nice staff. It was nice to be informed what was happening during the whole experience.

Pros: "Flight time just over 4 hours! Great service."
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Had my bags in an incredible 10 minutes"
Pros: "Lots of room for bags and legs. The outlet is easy to reach. And there are 3 bathrooms."
Pros: "No one sat in the middle seat! Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Waiting to board"
Pros: "Enjoyed big leather seats in older planes. More comfortable."
Pros: "Nice big aircraft for a comfortable flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "The staff was courteous. They had free drinks. They gate checked out luggage for free."
Cons: "They only had cookies and drinks on a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Not really Alaska's fault but delayed at the gate due to lot of extra flights taking off. Would have been nice to wait in terminal rather than on plane."
Cons: "Late departure (and arrival) Apparent equipment issue."
Pros: "3 seats each side of isle. Too cramped for comfort"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Row 32 - way too cramped for a 6 hour flight. I'm a small person too!"
Pros: "The flight departure was prompt, and it was a very smooth flight overall! We got in earlier than expected as well."
Pros: "ALWAYS ON TIME"
Cons: "I couldn't sleep ... too cramped."
Pros: "Left on time arrived early. No drama!"
Cons: "Sitting waiting to unload"
Cons: "Mix up when we landed - had to sit on the tarmac for about half hour before a a slot opened up to park the plane."
Pros: "Gate bag check for free, load from the back, on time, good hot food choice, plenty of beverages, polite crew, electric outlets"
Cons: "Couldn't read or send email without $$"
Pros: "Fairly pleasant other than things listed below."
Cons: "Seats couldn't recline and had little leg room, no complimentary entertainment, no complimentary food."
Pros: "More room in the pay-more section AND free drinks"
Cons: "Having to pay more to sit a few rows ahead of Coach class. Ridiculous! We're going to the same place!"
Pros: "Quick, easy, clean"
Pros: "Took off on time. landed early, free wi-fi. What more could I want?"
Pros: "The fight attendnts were extremely kind and helpful!"
Cons: "Crew was trying to be funny but it fell a little flat. Seats were small and cramped, no place for luggage overhead. Poor selection of beverages."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is superb from the boarding to getting inside the plane. Ground crew staff is amazing"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule. Great flight attendants."
Pros: "Friendly personnel, seating not so cramped"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and the seats were moderately comfortable."
Pros: "All flights were on time"
Cons: "Seat assignments differed from what i had requested. Boarding process was very slow. Seats in planes were very cramped. No entertainment. No snacks other than basic beverage offering. Felt like a cattle car."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "It was a long trip!!"
Pros: "On time boarding, on time departure, frequent updates by captain during flight."
Cons: "No "back of seat" TV's. You were given the option to rent a tablrt for the flight but even when doing that, they reclaim it 30-45 minutes before the end of the flight. On a cross-country, non-stop long flight it would be nice to have the TV's at all seats. Also, with the rented tablet, I was unable to track where we were or follow our progress (as we can with the in-seat TV's). Lastly, on a long-flight, they should have been better stocked. During their second trip to offer food for purchase they were sold out of many items - very limited options at that point."
Pros: "Crew and communication during/about flight were excellent."
Cons: "It is absurd to charge $40 for wifi."
Pros: "Alaska is my first choice between Burbank and Seattle but I go all the way thru to Bellingham and the trip between Seattle and Bellingham costs more than the first leg so I generally take a bus to Bellingham from Seattle. Wishing that last leg could become more affordable."
Cons: "Taking the bus from Seattle to Bellingham but the price differential is equal to another flight to Los Angeles so Seattle so I can't justify the cost."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew"
Pros: "New airplane,friendly crew,professional services"
Cons: "The tray table was very dirty when I put it down. I brought my own wipes but that was pretty bad."
Pros: "The crew was great. They seemed to show that they cared. A passenger next to me was not feeling well, so one of the crews kept checking on her, offering her water and ginger ale."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi connection was spotty throughout the flight. Maybe because it was an older plane (A320). I flew in A321 BOS-LAX and the Wi-Fi was much more reliable."
Cons: "Newer plane with bigger screens"
Cons: "One hour delay on plane. Over weight. Hot plane. Uncomfortable"
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi"
Cons: "Outlets on plane for charging phone"
Pros: "Crew was great Snacks were perfect Flight arrival was earlier Great experience"
Cons: "The door wouldn’t open once we arrived in Detroit"
Pros: "Friendly service. Left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "delayed by 2.5 hours"
Pros: "JetBlue in Long Beach was great. Everyone had smiles on their faces and was so nice and professional."
Pros: "Fast boarding, good wifi, awesome to have electrical outlets that actually worked, good entertainment, flight attendant very nice."
Cons: "They did not let me select my own seat. They stuck me in an aisle, which I can't stand. I only flfy JetBlue and only get window seats. Always. They told me there were NO window seats left except $95 extra room. They said I would go through Security priority. That was not true--you ended up in exactly the same giant line as everyone else. AND after shelling $95: (1) there WERE window seats available--so JetBlue basically lied and stole from me (at Christmas time! $95 fewer gifts I could buy) and (2) the seat was attached by Velcro to the seat back and kept coming slightly separated which caused me to end up with a pinched lower back nerve."
Cons: "Pets were allowed on the flight, and we had no prior knowledge of this. I happened to be allergic to furry animals, especially cats and dogs. There were two dogs on board, one in a row toward the front and one in the back. There was nowhere that I could go and allergens were probably circulated in the system. There was also a terrible odor that several others said they could also smell. The attendant said that there was nothing that could be done, and we suffered through the entire flight. Also, the TV control was broken and there was no option to turn off the TV. The attendant said that there would be a $25 voucher issued for compensation. We have not heard a peep from anyone!"
Pros: "Best coach seats EVER!!!!! Friendly staff!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and cheerful"
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "I am an no carbs diet and I was hoping for low carb snack but nothing was available"
Cons: "Was delayed almost 4 hours and I lost a meeting that I had in Boston"
Cons: "Flight from Boston to salt lake City was delayed by more than an hour"
Cons: "Entertainment system malfunctioned for much of flight."
Pros: "Most everything was great."
Cons: "Ended up sitting in the very back row, so wasn't able to lean back as far. Otherwise it was fine."
Cons: "have hearing aids and could not figureout how to turn on CC"
Pros: "crew was polite quiet flight"
Pros: "Flight was good and good crew"
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Cons: "Inadequate space for carry on. Flight delayed 3 times"
Pros: "Free tv, snack, and drink. A good amount of leg room. The flight was on time."
Pros: "Nothing. I was not in this flight. It was booked errorenously."
Cons: "Nothing. I was not in this flight. It was booked errorenously."
Pros: "On time and very friendly crew."
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful from walking into OIA until leaving plane. I love flying Jet Blue"
Pros: "Check in was quick and painless"
Cons: "Boarding last even though sitting in rear of aircraft."
Pros: "Efficient, timely, smooth flight"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Delayed due to yesterday’s storm by 2 hours. I wish the airlines could let people know a bit earlier so we don’t just sit in the airport."
Pros: "Free snacks Good entertainment"
Cons: "Back seat pocket was ripped out Flight was delayed 90 minutes"
Pros: "Being on time is important. Jet blue always makes it easy"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times. The plane was hot. There was a loud crying baby behind us kicking our seats... I thought there was more than one baby and was surprised to see all that was generated by one. Our attendant was a little snarky and dismissive. One entertainment screen was on the fritz, and the sound was messed up on the other, so we hacked them together to make one functioning system for one of us. The fly-fi was out of range for all but the last 30 minutes. The seats seem to be getting narrower, and I've lost weight!"
Pros: "I did appreciate how apologetic the flight crew was and eventually we were able to board our flight. I also appreciated the credit that Jetblue gave me for the inconvienence. That showed sensitivity on their part that was refreshing. I know it is the holidays so its busy, and unexpected situations do arise during these times especially, so at least the credit provided some positive relief to the disappointment."
Cons: "I understand that maintaince is a necessary and usual part of flying planes every day, that said, I had booked the earlier flight for the purpose and intention of getting into Boston earlier to spend more time with my family but arriving 5 hours later than expected was disappointing. Needless to say, the traffic getting out of Boston at 4pm on a Tuesday only added insult to injury. This was also the second time that I had an underwhelming experience overall flying Jetblue so that added to the disappointment."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly and quickly"
Pros: "Friendly staff at check in, gate and flight. Went smoothly and efficiently"
Cons: "Flight delayed by a day. No reasonable efforts to get us there through another airline."
Cons: "Forty minutes late. Last time I flew them it was four hours"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hrs. Not the airline's fault but waited in the help line for over an hr before the agent told me there was no earlier flight I could be placed on - she was incorrect. Pointed out that there was another flight that had also been delayed and therefore hadn't left yet - she agreed, put me on standby. At the gate, the boarding crew did not know what they were doing. The plane was 20% empty but crew made situation very hectic by giving standby passengers seats, taking them away, and then realizing there was actually enough room on the plane. Crew was friendly but incompetent in terms of problem solving."
Pros: "I'm a big fan of jet blue :) Nicer than the other international flight..."
Cons: "Endless delays and extremely shitty boarding staff."
Pros: "We got to our final destination."
Cons: "We needed to wait for "just a few minutes." The Captain said. Then, no other communication at all and we left over an hour late for a 45-minute flight, no explanation. I hate when they leave you in the dark and aren't upfront. The connection from Emirates to JetBlue we had was almost impossible. Two healthy adults, arriving on time in NYC with two hours to make a connection. With walking as fast as possible and not even going to the bathroom, we barely made the flight. Customs. Change terminals. Go through security again. ridiculous."
Pros: "The Popcorners were fresh."
Cons: "Once again, Jet Blue did not let us check-in online because we had purchased tickets through a travel site. And although the partner with Azul, they claimed that they could not check us through to our final destination. Coming home, Azul did this for us without issue. Gates E-9 and E-10 at Fort Lauderdale are a disaster waiting to happen. There is inadequate separation between the two gates to allow efficient boarding. When the flight out of E-9 got delayed, they ended up boarding two flight at the same time. Boarding announcements dd not specify flights and it became a huge snafu. The crew did not try to change it - they plowed ahead ignoring the confusion they were causing. On board, the movies did not run smoothly - one was restarted three times. I have tried to book on Jet Blue firt in the past. My last three experiences are making me rethink this."
Pros: "Crew and staff was friendly and courteous."
Pros: "L.L Bean crew was amazing!! The tv channels and movies!!"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "Nice plane, good service and pilots, great landing - no issues at all."
Pros: "Delta One product is among the best in domestic US."
Cons: "Let passengers know that Delta One has a special check in area."
Cons: "The flight attendants skipped many rows of people not offering food or beverage. I wasnt sleep so not sure why I wasnt asked did I want a beverage or snack"
Pros: "Everythg was perfect"
Cons: "Have some headset so people can watch movies in the plane"
Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Seats won’t stay reclined."
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Pros: "Really nice flight crew who braved the storm to get us home when everyone else was getting cancelled."
Pros: "Everyone was great!"
Pros: "Nicer plane"
Cons: "One stewardess almonds mowed me down with cart"
Cons: "Wheelchair shortage on arrival, although I had one reserved. Waited for a while then walked. Not ideal. Very long wait for bus to rental car center."
Pros: "On time and helpful staff."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was really great"
Cons: "I can’t no say anything bad"
Cons: "Really rough landing"
Cons: "Double booking and payment of flight. Dropped flight bookings. Not a good trip"
Pros: "No delay and friendly crew!"
Cons: "Not much leg room and the coffee was horrific."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "On time, staff, and overall service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Awesome customer service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Overall everything was great would definitely recommend delta to others ."
Pros: "I bought my ticket about 3 months ago. At my check-in at AMS they said that! DELTA now charges for the 1st bag. Total (unpleasant) surprise. Will I be charged on my RETUTN FLIGHT?"
Cons: "I bought my ticket about 3 months ago. At my check-in at AMS they said that! DELTA now charges for the 1st bag. Total (unpleasant) surprise. Will I be charged on my RETUTN FLIGHT?"
Cons: "Seat did not recline."
Pros: "Crew was friendly enough, but not overly."
Cons: "Entertainment system was (again) not fully functional. No success to "noon-movies", such as games. Plane was untidy almost from the beginning. Check-in staff was functional, but not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Me atendieron muy bien , tuve un excelente viaje"
Pros: "great flight , on time, great service"
Pros: "It left and arrived on time"
Cons: "They didn’t have wine in such a long flight"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "Happy to get an earlier flight - and was put in ComfortPlus"
Cons: "Small plane, no entertainment (movies, music)"
Pros: "Food and nice crew"
Cons: "No tvs and bad WiFi"
Pros: "Flight attendant Gillian Awesome. Crew was fun and made my kids first flight great."
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Cons: "Haven't made it yet... still on standby in later flight"
Pros: "The flight was good. It crashed zero times. I was pleased not to check my carry-on bags. They were attentive in calling for wheelchair assistance for me."
Cons: "Seats are consistently too small."
Pros: "Crew was top notch as usual."
Cons: "Entertainment screens were tiny. Smaller than a galaxy note screen. Need major upgrades"
Pros: "Efficient hop to Boston"
Pros: "Modern plane from ATL to BOS. On board games were a fun distraction."
Pros: "Very professionals"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Pros: "Pilot got us back safe through some bad turbulence, the flight was shaky from start to finish. They gave extra snacks, were attentive to any needs. Would definitely trust Delta pilots again. Also with this being a connecting flight, it was nice that the group of five I was in was given an entire row to ourselves."
Pros: "Lots of seat space even in economy, I felt very comfortable and not cramped on my flight. Food was decent and flight attendants were very attentive. My flight was kind of an outlier experience as someone on my flight fell very ill and needed immediate medical attention. The KLM employees on board did a very good job of taking care of the situation and making sure everyone else on board still had a calm flight experience."
Cons: "My connecting flight was scheduled too close to my landing time."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped! Cabin crew not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Great stewardesses, good food"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Im 6'2. My knees still are hurting due to the horrible leg room"
Pros: "Everything about my trip was exceptional!"
Pros: "I had a great seat"
Cons: "Attention to detail by the gate attendant who totally missed that I was boarding the wrong flight"
Pros: "The steward was super friendly."
Pros: "That I took off and landed safely."
Cons: "The attitude of the employees."
Pros: "Great short flight"
Cons: "Since we were in one of the last groups to board, there was no room for our carry on and had to be checked. Yet there are people in the previous classes who have two carry on bags and both are checked. There needs to be a penalty for this."
Pros: "Did not experience food or entertainment"
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Cons: "inflight entertainment wasn't working on my seat only which made my 6 hour flight seem even longer :("
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Pros: "Boarded well but held for late connecting passengers, which is fine with me."
Cons: "Crew less than pleasant it seemed."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Getting canned and moved to a flight that is five hours later"
Pros: "No problems. Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Took 35 min to move from the gate with everyone buckled in."
Pros: "One was great and one was not helpful and was condescending"
Cons: "Have to pay for WiFi"
Cons: "No entertainment, nor food"
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage and it did not arrive in Boston"
Cons: "Lack of food and drink. Crew lackadaisical."
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Pros: "I actually got to sit by my sweetie. Perfection."
Pros: "We had plenty of space. Wine, beer and food was tasty and complimentary. Mark, our flight attendant, was very friendly and learned our kids names."
Cons: "Great flight!"
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "Staff was polite and friendly. It was a great experience!"
Pros: "Im very upset with the flight"
Cons: "What you guys did its unfair I paid for a reservation. The way you run the business its not right"
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes are very old, for a transatlantic flight to have monitors showing one movie in the middle of the plane is ridiculous. Even my 2 hours Delta flight had personalized screens and entertainment on demand. Really disappointing especially on return as we flew 8 hours during daytime"
Pros: "It was a good flight back to DC."
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Everyone operated fast and professional"
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Not iberia"
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "It did not crash"
Cons: "Delays, baggage loss, how the Airline dealt with both."
Cons: "The seat was extremely comfortable."
Pros: "- It was on time"
Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Cons: "Allowed me to take earlier flight"
Pros: "Expected turbulence and crew was honest about it and even changed the flight path to Logan to avoid it. It was bumpy but not that bad. free soft drinks and cookies :)"
Pros: "Even though flight was full, everything just flowed - no issues."
Cons: "Video was for cabin and not by seat"
Cons: "Served drink as they prepped for landing"
Pros: "Quick, easy, great crew"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Cons: "Delayed for 30 mins due to traffic going in to Boston."
Pros: "The actual attendants on board were perfunctory but had zero urgency or understanding that we had been delayed or notified we'd be so delayed. Appeared there was zero communcation between the gate staff and actual crew. So much was so 'typical Miami' which is just a sad way any travel experience should be described. I expect more from the largest global airline especially when I just listened to several interviews from the CEO who appeared to pride himself to be accurate in being the best to serve his patrons."
Pros: "I loved the new planes. Absolutely amazing"
Cons: "The boarding crew was extremely rude. But the flight crew was very nice. And the food was subpar."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. All I did was sleep and watch movies, it was great."
Pros: "Awesome and funny service."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Had to wait to board"
Cons: "Significant delay-no weather issues, didn't make sense."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment depended on the Wi-Fi working. It did not work the whole flight."
Cons: "Was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "My wife and I were given seats aisle apart"
Cons: "It appears united is unable to fly their planes on times, in particular on the East Coast. We were delayed by 90min on each legs"
Cons: "6h delay is rough because of plane shuffling"
Cons: "Food and charging for entertainment"
Cons: "The seating and chance to keep my luggage"
Cons: "Still have not left."
Pros: "Crew was professional and patient."
Cons: "Have to pay for food on a transcontinental flight, too cheap."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Lost my baggage"
Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"
Pros: "That seats next to me were empty so I was able to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "That my ears don't work well, so it's hard to hear the movies."
Pros: "Quick and easy to board."
Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice. I picked one of the seats at the end so plenty leg room."
Cons: "OK, United, I understand and fully support "no more seat monitor" policy to reduce costs (even though it seems very backward); however, there's one problem--if you still want to enjoy onboard entertainments, you need to download the United application above 10,000 feet where you can never find your 4G connection. Oh wait, but there's still Wi-Fi service, right? Sure, if you are willing to pay $17 just to download application!! United, I understand how you want to make little money out of a customer's pocket, but this is not how you should do it. You should at least allow internet connection before departure or let the customer aware they need to download application beforehand."
Cons: "It began going downhill at the United Lounge, where I put two chairs together to get a little sleep since my flight was scheduled to leave at 12:30am. I was summarily woken up and told that it wasn't appropriate to sleep in a lounge. I complained at the front-desk (politely) and was told ... "This is a lounge". Oh and yes, the Wifi wouldn't connect and the food was stale ... so I left, and found a very nice sofa in the concourse. On the flight, service was non-existent, whoever was in the galley was clattering things about, despite the fact that this is a short red-eye flight ... the coffee was awful. The steward forgot to give me my coat and I had to ask twice AFTER we landed and were leaving the plane to get it. By contrast, Lufthansa has daybeds and a special quiet area to snooze, and offer pillows and blankets. Clearly, the Germans are louche compared to Americans."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "I was not informed about the delay until after I checked my bag, otherwise I might have chosen another flight. I was informed that though I could possibly change flights, my bag might not. I have the UA app, and did not receive timely notification. Free WIFI would have been nice as a compensation. A 4 hour delay means I miss my bus and extends my travel time significantly, one more night away from home. You did offer $50 of mt next UA flight for the next year, but I don't fly that often. Considering the reason for the delay was they were waiting for a plane was frustrating."
Pros: "Very meticulous pilots, very friendly and accommodating cabin crew"
Cons: "When we made reservations in February we opted for economy plus seating 8C and 8D on an Airbus A320. In June we received notice of a schedule and equipment change to a Boeing 737-300. I was not told or given the option to change seat assignments, and we were assigned middle and window seats 28E and 28F, which were torture, so narrow and almost no legroom. Why weren't we automatically assigned economy plus seats? Adding insult to injury I had to apply for a refund for the seat upgrade, which again should have been automatic. Seeing as how the return flight was code-shared with AirCanada, United did not give us the option to upgrade seating, so I was forced to call United, waited almost 40 minutes so that they could give me the AirCanada booking reference number which then enabled me to upgrade seats via AirCanada's website. Lucky thing too because there weren't many economy plus seats left. I consider myself to be a savvy traveler, but there were too many unknowns and hoops to jump through in order to get proper seating. Plus the extra fees for premier access and baggage are exorbitant. Finally, I bought an egg white flatbread snack which was awful. I don't see how United gets away with this treatment, it certainly doesn't make for an enjoyable experience when vacationing. In fact we are seriously considering not taking any more vacations requiring flying. We're happy that airlines are profitable, but not at the expense of comfort or navigating options that require very sophisticated knowledge."
Pros: "I got home safe."
Cons: "The customer service was mediocre. The selection of complementary beverage was minimal compared to other airlines. The staff are disgruntled and sometimes rude. There was always some sort of mechanical problems with the plane going to Puerto Plata and coming back. On the way to DR we had to divert to Miami because of problems with Navigation. They made us wait seven hours and gave us a voucher for food at the last minute. People had already bought food. I would not recommend United to none of my associates."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about the flight"
Cons: "Layover in New Jersey was horrible. My flight was delayed 4x, and arrived at my destination 4 hours behind schedule. When I asked customer service for more information regarding my flight, the staff was rude, did not offer a resolution or give an explanation for the delay. A little customer service could have went a long way to make the situation better. I am overall not pleased with the customer service I received and was disappointed with the delay. I don't think I will ever fly united again due to the customer service."
Cons: "No legroom. Sat TV cut out constantly"
Pros: "On time in spite of a late start Gate attendants were nice and helpful Comfortable as is possible in economy without spending a lot more money. Food (pretzels and drinks) as good as possible without spending more money. (I remember the good old days when you got much more in seating and food for your money)"
Cons: "This flight I had a window seat and I felt like I couldn't get up to stretch my legs or use the bathroom. (I am 70 and 4 hours is too long to sit) I usually get an isle seat but ALWAYS have to give up my bag at the gate - my bag which you tell me I can bring ON the plane with me. I do not like having to waste time claiming my bag that you told me I could have with me on the plane. I can pay $25 for that privilege!! The flight attendants always seem like they have their defenses up. One even held up the people trying to board so she could serve a drink to someone in first class. REALLY?? They couldn't wait till the plane was loaded?? I gave this flight a 'good' rating because it was mostly as good as it is going to get with economy passengers needs stripped to the bare minimum."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight delayed after boarding by 30 + minutes. Snack was not only meager but tasted stale. As my flight from LA was a bit late I didn't really have time to get something to take on the plane. The on board choices were expensive and not at all appealing. Beverage service was only twice. The plane was dirty I had trash in the seat pocket in front of me. The bathroom I used was awful. Trash on the floor toilet was dirty and it smelt bad. It was comparable to a train I took crossing Siberia in the 90,s. My flight to LA was delayed by 51/2 hours. I was given a voucher but after this experience not sure I will ever use it"
Cons: "Seats. Not comfortable at all for long flights."
Pros: "Very comfortable and the staff was great!"
Cons: "HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM UNITED AND THE THIRD PARTY CONSOLIDATOR. Awful. Awful. Awful."
Pros: "Crew staff went out of his way to find something for my aisle to snack on when the person next to me asked if there was any snacks on the plane. The plane had to be changed for another plane due to a mechanical issue on the first plane, and the new plane had not been stocked with food after it's previous flight, yet the crew member was able to scrounge up some snacks for us! Also got complimentary directtv - nice, but doesn't make up for not getting home in time yet again."
Cons: "United sucks. I have flown it maybe 10-12 times in the past 2.5 years, mostly back and forth between Chicago and Boston. I have had only 3 round trip flights go without a hitch. Every other trip was delayed. This time 4 hours on my return flight to Boston due to a plane switch, boarding of a new plane to discover a mechanical issue, deboarding, waiting for a new plane, then boarding and sitting on the ground for another 40 min before we were able to take off. I was delayed 1.5 hours on the way to Chicago due to another plane swap (no joke). Still doesn't top but my worst 5 hour delay in Chicago on the way back to Boston because the captain didn't show up. United is atrocious and is my last choice or any airline. Only fly when I'm absolutely forced to now due to no other reasonable choices. They are below delta, JetBlue, American, southwest, and embarrassingly, spirit as well. Terrible."
Pros: "Roomier comfortable seating."
Cons: "Paying for luggage and food"
Pros: "Direct tv"
Pros: "Captain had apologized many times about the delay. I appreciated that. . Crew attitude towards customers were way better than my first leg.( Beijing to Chicago). I wonder why. Boarding took long time. Many people had no overhead bin for their carry on. I don't have one so I Just watched them. They serviced water and a tiny snack. One man asked if they have something to eat. He was given a bigger bag of snack, free, usually he had to pay. I guess its due to the delay. Waited a little longer for luggages. But I was happy I arrived Boston safe before midnight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing, great flight."
Cons: "The lack of breakfast options. Lack of room."
Pros: "Planes get delayed for all kinds of reasons both in and out f control of the airline. but something the airline does have control over is how it handles the sitsituatioby letting the passengers know their patience is appreciated. We sat on the runway for 2 and a half hours in summer afternoon in Washington DC because of weather in New York. Only once were we offered a small cup of tepid water. Then someone remembered the pets stuck in the cargo hold, and we went back to the gate. After deplaning, we stood at the gate for thirty minutes and weren't given vouchers for refreshments on the concourse nor bottles or at least bottles of water. Finally we were called for boarding, and then 10 minutes after that, the first passenger actually got on. After a second boarding we made it out to the runway... where we sat for another 40 minutes. Keep in mind, this particular plane has no seat outlets nor in seat entertainment systems, so most people had either dead or dying phones at this point, rendering the "complimentary in flight entertainment" available through the United app useless. Once we were finally in air, we weren't comped drinks or Internet or any other amenity offered by United. I've been stuck in situations like this on other airlines, but they worked to provide the barest glimmer of hospitality. Fly the friendly skies? Nah, we'll overcharge you for everything because our business model is unsustainable but our majority shareholders couldn't care less. A Star Alliance Member™."

Pros: "Short flight and ran on time."
Cons: "While waiting at Newark on my layover, there was nobody at the gate to assist with seating assignment (which had not been assigned as my flight was oversold)... I didn't get my seat until stepping onto the plane/bridge. While there was nobody available to even tell us what was going on regarding seat assignments until 10 minutes before boarding, there were 4-6 United employees sitting in chairs right next to our gate chit chatting (being paid to do absolutely nothing), who couldn't even tell us what was going on (what a waste of resources)... Even the manager took 15 minutes to carefully set up the line walkways coming in to customer service... like it had never been done before and she had to reinvent the wheel."
Cons: "Very rough landing ."
Pros: "Boarding was done quickly and the crew members were great."
Cons: "I hate the fact that I had to pay for data just to see the map of where the plane is during my travel. Other airlines will at least give you a map to view as well as one or two free movies/show. They don't make you feel like your being forced to purchase data just to have a pleasant ride. I also hate the fact that I checked in my bag well before my flight (even had time to grab something to eat before boarding) and when I landed the airline informed me that my bag didn't make it on my flight. Like how does that even happen? Then tell me it's on a different flight, that landed 4 hours later. Well, my bag wasn't on that flight either but on a different flight that landed a few minutes later."
Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"
Pros: "There was not one glimpse of positive in this experience."
Cons: "Upon arrival to Newark there was no gate agent available to check in with for the first two hours of the delay. In the air there was no food or drink service. The plane loaded at 1230 but did not push back from the gate for almost another hour. Upon arrival in Boston we spent near another hour on the tarmack waiting for a gate free up with very little comunication. I got to Boston 5 hours after I had intended to with no ability to give my rid from the airport any info for when I would be getting off the plane. The whole time dance moms rotated between a different show but must have come on 3 times with no ability to shut the screen off and take a nap. No compensation was offered in any way."
