Top 5 airlines serving Cancún to Sacramento Intl
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Safe, uneventful flight. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Boarding went very smoothly and the flight left on time. Baggage was very quick when we arrived in Seattle as it was already coming out when we arrived in the baggage claim area."
Cons: "I would have like to have been offered disinfectant wipes to use on the food tray. Otherwise it was a perfect experience."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Seats are more narrow than other airlines."
Cons: "Better seats. What’s the deal with always getting the back of the plane? Seats right next to the engine. Very tired of getting the worst seats even when I check in within minutes of the the 24 hour window. Really tired of the bad seats."
Cons: "Food service horrible. Don’t you think food is a necessity? Giving grown adults pigeon food is quite absurd. What happened to a real meal with your flight! Imma open an airline and Delta will be bought out by me. Just cause I will treat people like humans not caddle"
Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."
Cons: "Made us check our carry ons and there was plenty of space in the cabin overhead comoartments"
Pros: "Very kind associate working at the gate. She helped me obtain my seat assignment and was a pleasure to speak with. Her happiness was contagious (even at 6am!). She put me at ease."
Cons: "The last travelers in boarding line (including myself) had to check their carry on luggage because “there was no more room in the overhead compartments”. However, while I was walking to my seat, I saw ample storage space as well as suitcases that were laying horizontally or flat and could easily have been adjusted to create even more space. Given that most people pack their most valuable items in their carry on bags (as well as anything fragile), I was a bit uneasy checking mine. The associate who helped check my bag on the tarmac was kind. I was grateful that my luggage had a hard shell case."
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "update the gate info correctly and immediately. I was directed by app to go B5A but actually it is B5 gate in SEA-TAC"
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff"
Cons: "Was sitting next to bathroom and couldn't recline seats Only one item on the menu was available for purchase for dinner."
Pros: "Delta service is amazing"
Pros: "Nobody was amazing. First Class Crew didn’t really care and there were only 6 of us up there."
Cons: "I was offered one during. They didn’t have spicy Bloody Mary mix. Tired to pass off a drink with plain tomato juice which was horrible. When my wife sent it back they didn’t offer her anything else."
Pros: "Although we had to get a replacement plane due to fuel leak on the original, Delta accomplished the switch quickly and efficiently. The Captain came out to greet us, and the flight crew was pleasant, courteous, and professional."
Cons: "The little individual TV screens are tough to see for older eyes."
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Do not lie to the passengers and make a lot of people check their bags when it’s empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The crew and staff were friendly. The flight was full so they checked our bag at no additional charge."
Cons: "They had no earphones for the flight from Cancun."
Pros: "Flight crew got us to Columbus on time despite a delay leaving the gate"
Cons: "More room, less congestion."
Cons: "Delta needs air conditioning on their flights"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were not head flaps on the seat. The person seated next to me overflowed into my seat making it uncomfortably warm even with the air vent fully open. Was in & out of sleep during a red eye flight."
Pros: "There was those head rest flaps on my chair head rest. Checkin my luggage was seamless."
Cons: "Boarding process was bit disorganized."
Cons: "The worst flight I have ever been on. Sat on the plane for an hour before taking off with no AC"
Pros: "Very orderly."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Cons: "The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN."
Pros: "Not a good experience. Crew was unhappy, disengaged, seemed too busy and buried."
Cons: "NEverything seemed hurried and frenzied. Airplane was dirty when we boarded."
Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."
Cons: "it stink inside the plane, the seats in front of us were dirty and smelled bad!"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."
Cons: "Terrible boarding process. I booked the tickets months ago, but didn't have seats until the last minute. They didn't even put my wife and I together, but sandwiched 2 people between us. Boneheads."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight smooth and quick."
Cons: "Gate change and departure time change not reflected properly on boarding pass. Problems with gogo in Flight."
Pros: "Delta’s crew were professional"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, reclining only about an inch is not enough for a 5+ hr trip"
Cons: "the older stuardess on my flight from Cancun to Atlanta was very misinformed- told me my carry on wouldn't fit in the over head bin... it did. Told me I had to check my duty free liquor.. I didn't. Told me I couldn't bring all of my liquor in to the US... I could. I just kept saying ok to her just to shut her up, but she ensued with her comments and wrong info as if I don't travel as often as I do. Perhaps she was attempting to be helpful, but it came off as obnoxious and rude especially since she was wrong on every accord. Humbleness and customer service training would do her very good. All other DELTA staff have been great."
Cons: "For a competitive price charged by almost any other airline for the same distance, there was no lunch on a midday international flight? That is terrible. To make things worse, the entertainment screen was broken. It did not respond to touches. More of an ordeal than entertainment. To top it all, the current flight info (e.g. time at departure & destination, flight duration) was all wrong. Not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "I Love flying on Delta especially since I'm often upgraded to Comfort or first class."
Pros: "Loved the customer service & movie options"
Cons: "The flight only had snacks for free; wish sandwiches would be given for lunch"
Pros: "Flight arrived early!!"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "The fact that booking with kayak wouldn't let me pick my seats and traveling with 2 kids under 4 it made it very stressful trying to figure out how we could sit together or even the same end of the plane."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."
Cons: "A complimentary sandwich would have been nice for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "accommodating and friendly staff food and drinks were good -I had a layover that was boarding before we had reached the terminal and the staff let me know and guided me about how to get to the other flight and let the other flight crew know so I wouldn't lose my flight. Super appreciative of this. :)"
Cons: "cramped seating warm / poor air circulation super hot in the cabin - this is probably because of Salt Lake City, rather than the plane though."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "No in flight TV."

Cons: "A lot of the airport employees and staff negative and Grouchi mean attitude but does not take away nothing with the airline company staff very helpful and positive people"

Cons: "My email read check into Aeromexico I could not check in the Aeromexico using my phone I was dropped off at the Aeromexico terminal after standing in line for half an hour I find I was in the wrong terminal I needed to be in a different terminal with Delta because Aeromexico even on my reservation read that does not fly to Tampa.

Cons: "Our connecting flight did not exist because we had to drive to Calgary to catch our flight to Cancun due to mechanical problems in the plane. WestJet was incredibly unhelpful and getting any kind of refund from them for our troubles has been very difficult. The air was broken on the flight back."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow us to check our bags online without charging baggage fees; Culdn't get electronic boarding passes; Took forever to check-in at airport. boarding passes and baggage tags had to be hand-written."

If you live here--Lucky You! You are almost home! And if you don't live here, welcome to the Okanagan! We hope you enjoy your stay."

Pros: "There was nothing to like about my experience."
Cons: "I booked round trip ticket's to Cancun from NYC. I had a change of plans . I needed to add my 2,4yr old to my trip.The Aromexico agent wanted to charge me over 1000.00 for the two children, to travel with me even though online the tickets were $200.00.They would not let me book my tickets online because the children were minors even though my ticket was already bought. I ended up purchasing tickets on delta to get to Cancun. However I was under the impression that I would return with Aeromexico on the round trip ticket I had already bought.NO! according to Aeromexico even though you buy a round trip ticket if you fail to use 1 leg of the trip you loose both ways WHAT! Then they refused to allow me to speak to a supervisor it was hands down the worst experience I have ever had with an airline in the 30 yrs that I have been traveling internationally. I would paddle boat rather than use this air again."
Cons: "Aeromexico is a scam. I will never travel with Aeromexico again. When we arrived in Mexico City, MX the airline changed their boarding gate without notification. We were sitting at the original gate for 2 hours only to realize they never called us to board. By the time we got to the correct gate, we were not allowed to board the plane because they said we were late. The plane left at 5:00 p.m and we arrived at the gate at 4:50 p.m. They informed us that we had to purchase new tickets which cost $370 per person. There were 4 of us. After arguing with the Aeromexico representatives and supervisor for over 5 hours and having them check their flight boards they admitted to making the mistake so they changed our flights without charging us, but now our flight leaves the next day at 6:20 a.m. and we will not get to our final destination until 4:15 p.m. So, we have to spend our night sleeping in the airport until our morning flight at no fault of our own. Their customer service is the worse and I've never ever had this kind of travel experience with any other flight. I am fed up, tired, and will be reporting this airline for fraud because many other customers have had the same experience. Never again will I travel with Aeromexico and Kayak should be ashamed to partner with this airline."
Pros: "Not too crowded"
Cons: "We didn't know the gate number until after boarding time. We boarded very late. Couldn't get comfortable in the seats"
Pros: "Great staff and comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "One hour delay, returned to airport we left from an hour after departure. Ended up arriving over 3 hours later than expected"
Cons: "The plane had to go back to Guadalajara after 1hour of flight due to mechanical problems, they had to put us on another plane ,it was scary."
Pros: "Headphones, meal, and a charging USB location was provided. Flight attendants were very attentive to us."
Cons: "I didn't like on my way back home the second I walked in I felt nauseated due to the bad odor. Smelled like urine and athlete feet, I was sick to my stomach."
Cons: "Late and no communication"
Cons: "The thing I did not like is that I call Aeromexico to pay for the extra loggage tha I had before my fly and the person that I talk to told me that everything was all paid for and when I got to the airport guess what, The extra luggage was not paid so they charge a lot more than what I would have paid the first time a call."
Cons: "It would be good to include fruits in the menu"
Pros: "The professionalism. The accuracy of arriving and the plane itself was very clean."
Pros: "2 hours delayed. Unbelievable"
Pros: "The pilots seem to be very skilled at landing. All planes touched down very smoothly. This may be an odd observation, and no one would really mention this - but it's important to point this out."
Cons: "Overall, Aeromexico is a very poor quality airline. Flight delays meant we lost a day in Cancun - and there was little or no communication from anyone regarding next steps. There is no coordination, no organization, food and coffee were of poor quality, and it an airline to be avoided at any cost."
Cons: "They did not refund money as I didnt take flight. I request for cancelling a week before"
Cons: "Plane over an hour late. Missed my bus connection to Reno."
Cons: "Flight has been pushed back on multiple occasions and we're still waiting to hear if it will ever leave or be canceled due to an ill flight attendant . Staff also says if canceled no accommodations will be provided because of a convention in GDL. Maybe we'll make it home eventually."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour waiting on connecting passengers to clear customs. Boarding was disorganized and chaotic."
Cons: "Food was bland and 1st class was similar to a domestic flight to Fort Lauderdale from NYC"
Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "The seats were extremely comfortable. They provided free entertainment."
Pros: "boarding was easy and quick. The crew was very pleasant."

Cons: "The airline reps were not very nice and they kept changing the gate"

Pros: "Entertainment. Every seat had their own tv."
Pros: "Crew was rod. Need more people to help check out people"
Pros: "My husband's knees were pressed against the seat in front of him so much so as to cause indentations in his legs. fortunately the flight wasn't full and we were able to spread out over 3 seats. It was still quite an uncomfortable flight for him."
Pros: "The comfort of the flight was outstanding. Spacious, nice temperature, and good movie selections."
Cons: "The boarding process wasn't the greatest. They only had 2 or 3 kiosks available for bag check-ins but they had 3 international flights all around the same time. The line was ridiculous."
Pros: "Great flight, comfortable"
Pros: "El precio casta te accesible a mis posibilidades. Y el servicio a bordo muy bueno. Gracias"
Cons: "Al momento del checkin, muy tardado y dando prioridad a los socios del club premier."
Pros: "I enjoyed that my kids had a great movie selection and food."
Cons: "I absolutely found it ridiculous how they board the plane. They did it both times coming and going. They didn't call anyone by zone they just allowed anyone to board at any time so I was in row 9 and people in row 20 boarded before me. What sense did that make."
Cons: "Mi vuelo era de Oaxaca a DF y después de DF a Sacramneto California. El vuelo de Oaxaca a DF nunca llegó porque el avión se le termino el combustible y nos dejo en Acapulco. Después tuve que esperar unas horas para que llegara mi vuelo a DF. Perdí mi conexión a Sácramento. Fui a aeromar y estaba cerrado, nadie me ayudó. Fui a la oficina y cerrado. Después llame a aeromar y nadie me ayudó y me colgaron. La boda de mi hermano es en unas horas y ahora tuve que comprar otro boleto de avión a un precio muy alto"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed but we got to our destination early. Lots of turbulance but the pilot flew in such a way that you barely felt it."
Cons: "Took 2 hours for the bags from our plane to get to the belt. Landed at 10:30pm and didnt get our luggage until about 12:45. There was 2 planes that landed right after us and all their baggage was on the belt within 10 minute!"
Cons: "We were stuck for appx 2 hours on the tarmac before deplaning. Then the baggage took another 2 hours to start unloading after our flight waited with no notice as to what was happening with our belongings."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "It felt very unorganized"
Pros: "Chair and leg room were good, TV on the second flight was outstanding."

Pros: "Airport staff were so helpful, they helped my mom out that needed a wheelchair, the American Airlines staff were also so helpful changing seats"
Cons: "The food on the plane was not very good. Also having to pay for checking are bag was annoying. We thought using our American Airlines card would pay for the baggage but they said it wasn't covered ...."
Cons: "My husband is 6'5" and sitting next to him the whole flight was barely bearable."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "The long delay was terrible"
Cons: "Four hour layover on a flight from Edinburgh to Sacramento."
Cons: "We bought the tickets with 1 luggage included. In the check in, the y charged us!"
Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."
Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"
Pros: "It seemed like it took longer to board this time. Otherwise, all was good. Flight was on time leaving and early landing."
Cons: "It seemed like boarding took longer that usual this time. It seems like it would go more smoothly if it were set up that everyone boards in the order from where they are seated, starting in the back, working forward."
Pros: "I think they should learn from other asian airlines, about Special veg meal.also more one cleans levatory."
Cons: "Nothing Other than dservice provided by Korean crew members"
Pros: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"
Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Pros: "THAT i WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL AND GET TO MY DESTINATION."
Cons: "WITH A CODE-SHARE, THE TICKET SHOULD SPECIFY WHICH CARRIER I WILL ACTUALLY FLY WITH. THIS WAS NOT DONE AND I ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT BECAUSE ALASKA AND AMERICAN ARE IN 2 DIFFERENT - VERY DIFFERENT TERMINALS. THEN THE LOBBY AGENT COULD NOT LOCATE ALASKA FLIGHT ON THE AMERICAN TERMINAL - ANOTHER DELAY. POOR EXPERIENCE OVERALL."
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."
Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Due to flight delays and missed flight because of the delays, we had to rebook and reticket and took a different airline"
Pros: "Nothing, I missed my flight bc of lack of paperwork and information from the crew"
Pros: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"
Pros: "Left on time, seemed to have a little more leg room than on previous flights. Experienced some air turbulence, but not sure pilot could have done anything about it. Delayed refreshments, but the attendants still managed to serve everyone."
Cons: "Seemed to take a long time for luggage to arrive; not sure what problem was. Not sure why we had to claim our luggage, only to turn it in again right away."
Pros: "It was a flight, it got me from point A to point B, but everything in between could've been much better."
Cons: "When first boarding the plane, the person I was with tried to close the shade on the window, the with frame and the first 2 pieces of glass popped out. We notified the flight attendant and his response was "can you stick your arm out the window and wave? No... ok you're fine" then we were notified the bathrooms in the middle of the plane were out of order and we could only use the bathrooms at the rear of the plane. There was no WiFi, and the audio system for the on board movies wasn't working. The flight attendants were only giving out cups of beverages and not the full can, which isnt a big deal but still looks bad on the airline considering everywhere flight with American has handed out full cans of soda. The perception was American dropped the ball on the his plane, and just didn't care to do the necessary maintenance. For the his head priced paid for the his hehe see tickets I would've expected better from a reputable airline. Needless to say we were a little disappointed."
Pros: "Price was right"
Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."
Pros: "Check-in went fairly smoothly."
Cons: "Crew (stewardess' were quite crabby)."
Pros: "The leg room in first class."
Cons: "Meal was not good."
Cons: "Ticketing agent was rude"
Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"
Cons: "The layover was supposed to be an hour...ended up taking 3.5 hours!"
Cons: "Do not bring blankets!! And the staff not nice"
Pros: "I like the updated airplane were we all had our own Tv's to watch whatever we wanted"
Cons: "Had to switch planes twice late boarding food sucks it what to freaking hot in the plan seat where Uncomfy no freaking movie on our way back I'm not sure if I'll fly again with AA to many complains from people"
Pros: "Flight was early both ways. Pleasant experience"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag in to baggage claim instead of at the gate. The airport staff were extremely rude and disrespectful."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Music/radio was nice at my seat; got into Sacramento early"
Cons: "No gate # on boarding pass, almost missed flight; kind of had to slouch to look out the window; rough/fast landing"
Cons: "That there is no internet"
Cons: "The flight got late and then were told its early And I literally had to run terminals after Finding out that my luggage was still missing. It's been two days and I haven't got my luggage yet"
Cons: "American Airlines has become like the worst low cost airlines! After buying the ticket, everything else is at a cost: to select your seat, to check bags, everything. Whenever I will have a choice, I will chose other carriers!"
Pros: "We boarded quickly and was quiet and smooth."
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late."
Cons: "Delayed 2 times in CLT then delayed almost an hour in Sacramento because there was not a gate open when we landed"
Pros: "Luckily the kind gentleman transported me to my gate or I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "Delays in flying"
Pros: "Fairly quick boarding, nice crew."
Cons: "Old airplane with old uncomfortable worn out seats. They showed a movie during flight on overhead screens, could barely see it and the audio was terrible. The food choices were unacceptable for an over 5 hour flight. Only one sandwich choice, pastrami on rye, really how many people like that one! Drink choices were the usual. Overall There would have to be a very compelling reason for me to choose American again."
Pros: "Airline crew made no attempt to help the passengers on board who had connections flight to leave air craft before other passengers."
Cons: "my language arrived in 24 hours delay"
Cons: "Very noisy!! A dog whinned the whole time. Flight attendants were ok."
Pros: "Nothing delay"
Cons: "Mahor delay and tarmac issue refund immideate"
Pros: "Quick flight, beautiful day, interesting company sitting next to me very pleasant flight."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and they were offering vouchers for later flights, wasn't a bad thing, though, I'd have done it."
Cons: "When experiencing turbulence, the flight attendant came over the speaker and requested everyone to be seated with their seat belts fastened. A few moments later she came back on reprimanding that "THIS IS NOT A JOKE YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN WITH YOUR SEAT BELTS FASTENED" which was still ok. The third announcement was the one I felt was highly inappropriate when she then stated "I DONT KNOW IF YOUVE BEEN WATCHING THE NEWS LATELY, BUT THERE IS NO WARNING WHEN THE TURBULANCE IS GOING TO GET WORSE" frankly I have been watching the news lately and there is plane CRASHES on the news. My husband is afraid of flying and that announcement was terrifying, even for someone who is not afraid to fly. There has to be some sort of protocol of verbage to use when the turbulance is getting bad, because to insinuate the plane could crash to get your point across is crossing the line. I have been on planes where the turbulance is a lot worse and felt this was really out of line."
Pros: "On-time departure from Cancun but early arrival in Denver (relatively mild jet stream?). Otherwise, fairly typical United cattle carrier."
Pros: "Had to wait 2 hours on the plane because a port was not available."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Absolutely NO leg space."
Pros: "Bigger plane more smooth ride the pizza was excellent"
Cons: "The running to the next plane in 15 min because of the delay the landing was hard"
Pros: "Free movie due to wifi being unavailable"
Cons: "The crew seemed less than cheerful"
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."
Pros: "being group 3, yet row 30. Not being cramped. being with an actual United flight crew (instead of a Sky West)."
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."
Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."
Pros: "United planes are up to date and clean. Service excellent. All personnel very nice."
Pros: "Great service!!"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I liked the sincerely friendly staff; they made it a pleasant experience."
Cons: "I would ha've liked free TV; ,I feel I've paid for it in cost of ticket."
Pros: "Everyone was kind and professional."
Cons: "There was one guy helping me with my boarding pass who was rude."
Cons: "I waiting from 9:00 morning until tomorrow 8:00. 24 hours for cancelled this's so crazy and long time and I still waiting for another flight"
Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "no food unless you bought it no wifi or entertainment at all unless you bought it, or had the united app on your device (which, you can't download on plane). overhead compartments smaller than usual, as was under seat area"
Cons: "I had round trip from Sacramento to Cancun, the staffs service was poor, there are even no greeting and smiling when I every time checked in. That is really bad experience with united airline"
Cons: "They should offer free movies and this silly bags of nuts; can someone be more creative?"
Pros: "The evening before our return to US from our vacation in Mexico, my husband lost his passport. The Cancun airport crew, including Paz and Raphael, worked with US consulate (on a day they are typically closed) to get permission for him to board the return flight. Otherwise, we would have had to stay two more days ( until monday) to go to the consulate. THANK YOU, United!"
Pros: "It was good to be in Houston for a brief moment!!"
Cons: "Waited for 3 hours for the flight to finally be cancelled, then waited another hour for a van to arrive. It's only a 2-1/2 hr drive to begin with! This is the 2nd time of 4 I've booked this flight that it's been cancelled. Doubt I'll ever book again."
Pros: "Great free movies in first class."
Cons: "The first class crew was not very warm or welcoming. The outgoing flight from IAD set the bar high -- they could've spent less time gossiping and more time remembering my drink order."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "I liked that they made it to my destination on time."
Cons: "Everything costs money on top of the tickets I purchased. To compete with other airlines they are going to have to start including food, baggage, and entertainment for free especially on international flights."
Pros: "Free entertainment because of the bother"
Cons: "Having our flight delayed. The pilots were still in Houston when we boarded the plane in Cancun. Sat on the plane 2.5 hours before they cancelled due to staff being over the limit of hours they could work. Surely this could have been realized before they boarded us! Very sloppy management of us on the plane, getting off the plane with staff saying "we don't know what's going on""
Pros: "Enjoyed it"
Pros: "The pilot flew the plane well and kept us informed about the route."
Cons: "Our luggage was rummaged through and jewelry was missing from inside the checked luggage!!!!!! Not to mention the fees for traveling with a regular piece of luggage that was well within the weight limits. SOME of the crew was rude (the guy was polite). They sell everything meals, entertainment, etc on board it is already pricey to fly and I guess it includes nothing but your right to sit and breathe. . The plane was cramped and there was trash by my seat probably from a previous flight. Also, I did not get to sit by my travel companion."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Missed connecting flight. Desk attendant was rude about it. Not a frequent flyer so never had that happen before. Says free wifi on flight but passengers couldn't connect. I won't fly on this airline again."
Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Patronizing flight attendant"
Cons: "It was a bit delayed"
Pros: "I surprisingly had a great trip. United has always been my least favorite airline when I get to choose, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how well the trip went."
Pros: "I had a complaint of overly noisy passengers in front of me as did others. Finally when spoken to about it by a femal stewardess they sat sticky quoted down."
Cons: "When I boarded and got to my seat o found it dirty. The steward had me ubvelcro the cushion so he could wash it off but their was a lot of food debrie from previous passengers. I didn't feel like I was sitting in a cleaned space for the duration of the flight"
Pros: "It is apparent that United is working to improve their customer service and efficiency - factors which have deterred me from using United in the past. FROM SFO TO CANCUN: First of all, the check-in procedure is very quick these days. At SFO, there is a curb-side check in, which also allows customers to pay the baggage fee and drop off the bag right there. I've used this in the past during busy airport hours. This time, I flew overnight, so I used the self-check kiosks in front of the check-in counters to check-in, pay the baggage fee, and print my ticket. I used the check-in line to check in my suitcase. The line was so minimal and moved so quickly, (as did security), I was at the gate in 30 min (from the SFO BART station). I rarely fly United because the check-in lines used to be very long and slow. In the past, I've missed more than one flight due to extraordinarily long check-in lines. I'm glad to see on the last 3 flights I've taken with United, this has changed for the better. FROM CANCUN TO SFO: I was happy to see that Cancún also has kiosks for self-check-in. It wouldn't allow me to check my bag, though, and I had to wait in a slow line to do so. Still, a much improved check-in compared to past experiences. *I should note: the slow line had 8 people in it and took 25 minutes. With many people, United Cancun lines have been known to take over 2 hrs. This was a Thursday afternoon on January 8. I'm not sure what the line would have looked like the Saturday before . . . BOTH FLIGHTS: The stewardesses did come by several times (as opposed to once on other airlines), offering water, which was appreciated. Finally, United tends to offer multiple flights at cheaper prices and more convenient times than other airlines. However, I still prefer flying other airlines - despite the increased cost - for the reasons below."
Cons: "United planes are older, outdated, and very small. The video system on the back of the headrest in front of me did not work on either flight (there or back), and no snack of any kind was offered on the afternoon 4.5 hr flight back from Cancun to SFO. A mini bag of salted peanuts were offered on the overnight flight from SFO to Cancun. But these were the least of my concerns. Deplaning was slow and long when we arrived at Cancun. We waited with the plane door closed, and the air off, for about 10 minutes. It was a hot, humid, uncomfortable wait. Deplaning took a long time due to the small, cramped seats (see description below). On the return flight to SFO, we waited on the runway in line with other planes. While this is not the fault of United, it did make passengers more anxious to deplane. Opening the plane doors took a long time, and exiting the plane even longer because people were slow getting out of their seats and recovering their bags from the storage bins. I saw people struggling to crab-walk out to the isle on "dead legs" (the floor space between seats is so minimal, no one can stand up straight, and must grab the seat in front of him/her to shuffle out to the isle - a difficult task for the elderly, or when carrying purses as big as carry-ons, sleeping toddlers, or babies). The seats were extraordinarily hard and small on both flights. I fit in the seat just fine, but had no leg space, and could not recline. In effect, I was forced to fly the entire time in an upright position, sitting on a rock-hard seat that felt like thin plastic-leather stretched over metal bars. I'm a young 40yr old traveler of normal size (5'4") and health (135 lbs), yet it was extremely uncomfortable sitting on that seat with no way to redistribute weight. I had pain in my legs for over 24 hrs after flying United from Cancun to SFO. I flew 6 round trips to Miami and Mexico City last year from SFO and never had this happen. I've flown to Peru and Miami direct - and much more comfortably - on other airlines. I will not choose a direct flight over 2 hrs on United again, and will continue to choose other airlines whenever possible."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding process, had to pay to check my only bag I brought, no complimentary snack, no options of movies or channels to watch. For such a long fligjt some kind of options is appreciated"
Pros: "Great customer service and spacious seats"
Cons: "The check in fees & maybe the staff could seem a little bit more excited when we Landed in Cancun."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and no incidents. The plane was clean and the flight attendants courtesy at the higher level."
Cons: "Even if I had the app downloaded I couldn't watch anything...kind a boring. Hope that they can fix that for the future."
Pros: "Leaving Cancun I was instructed to consolidate my purse into my overhead bag. In this process my cell phone was left at the terminal gates. At Houston lost baggage counter a wonderful woman was able to connect with the airport security in Mexico. Locate my phone, arrange for a hold and friend to pick it up in two days when she was flying out of the same terminal. I greatly appreciated everyone's effort to go the extra mile and the Mexican staff was beyond helpful especially since I was coordinating this all from the US with broken Spanish"
Cons: "Leaving SFO to Cancun, a horrible experience two day delay due to weather. No offer for even a toothbrush was given, no refund for any part of the tickets or costs of delays. I managed to leave the airport and return, waiting for several flights I was finally able to fly standby with a layover into Mexico DF and on to Cancun. Arriving three days later than my original plan. The most frustrating part was on the second morning people were being offered $500 and hotel rooms to give up their seats on an over booked flight yet no compensation or accommodation was offered for the delays I had been through. When asked point blank if I could have this same offer I was suddenly found to be able to fit on the next flight. Overall extremely flustered with united"
Cons: "There wasn't a built in audio/video system. You needed to stream movies on your tablet or phone over United wi-fi system. The system was overloaded. The movie would stop frequently while buffering. It was extremely irritating."
Pros: "Flight attendants didn't fret too much over passengers swapping seats to be close to traveling companions, though it did cause a delay in take-off, along with an equipment malfunction."
Cons: "On previous flights, attendants would strictly monitor the one personal item and one carry on rule. It didn't happen this time causing several people to have to check bags."
Cons: "Never made this flight, rerouted & 5 hrs late!"
Pros: "The flight to Mexico was great. Great service. Very comfortable ... Excellent ticket agent in Columbus. Prompt fights."
Cons: "During my check in process in Cancun I encountered the single worst airline employee in my extensive travel history. Guillermo Delgado is the most rude, demeaning, aweful person of any airline. When he wasn't roaming the line of ticketing agents kissing the female agents and flirting he was talking on his radio all the while the other agents were processing 10 customers or more to his one. Once we finally got to our turn he was rude and demeaning refusing to check are bags unless we paid him extra money despit being presented with out confirmation stating the first bag was included as it was an international flight. He demanded money under threat of arrest by Mexican police which he stated were his close friends. After buying the bag fees on my credit card he demanded additional funds in cash. Again under threat of arrest. He then stated he would not allow us to fly if we were not immediately compliant which we were. He finally gave us boarding passes and we escaped Mexico ... We will never return. We have traveled the world and never experienced anything like this."
Pros: "I like economy plus. Works perfect for me being 6'3"
Cons: "No tvs. Older plane. Boarding was a nightmare. My wife didn't have her immigration paperwork."
Pros: "Very well-organized. Friendly, professional crew -- classy and dignified. Smooth flight. Great internet available for small fee. Good leg room. Clean, well-equipped bathroom"
Cons: "Had to pay for even first bag (even though well-within weight limit.) No meal or snacks served included--had to buy from limited menu, and better items sold out fast. No movie options."
Cons: "No food provided at all on 4 hr flight. Sound was painfully loud over speakers during safety video. No way to turn off TVs permanently - kept coming back on with advertisements. Started boarding without announcing it over speakers."
