Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"

Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."

Pros: "Service and staff"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."

Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."

Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."

Cons: "According to the website and documentation a card holder is supposed to get the first bag free when using this card. I did not, so I will be cancelling the card."

Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."

Cons: "Was required to gate check my luggage through to baggage claim."

Pros: "On time great staff"
Cons: "Little cold"

Pros: "The agents in the air were a lot more understanding and at least apologized."
Cons: "I understand if we need to check bags because its full but when iy is not full but you demand I check it anyway all you are doing is adding travel time to my trip. Also we needed things in our bags that we otherwise would have had. Not the best customer service at the gate."

Pros: "As Scheduled, staff hospitality"
Cons: "+$25 extra each bag, seats not near travel companion"

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

Pros: "Individual screen and USB port"

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "A more organized boarding process"

Pros: "Luggage was found that was good"

Cons: "Todo bien"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, leg room much better than any US airline. Crew is smart and efficient."

Pros: "Everything else was average."
Cons: "The gate crew was rude and was unclear as to what was wanted. We were paged overhead to another gate after we had checked in and were given attitude at boarding time for not checking in again. The flight was hot and felt like no A/C was on."

Cons: "Rough Landing"

Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"

Pros: "People in Mexico are very nice."
Cons: "The Mexico DF airport us very crowded and you will be delayed. Avoid it if you can."

Cons: "They lost my luggage."

Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."

Cons: "I must to payfor my equipaje"

Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"

Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"

Cons: "The reservation people at Aeromexico messed up my flight and kept trying to sell me more flights instead of resolving the issue."

Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."

Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a bad mood that night. One of the flight attendants hit my elbow as he was speeding through the aisle, causing me to knock over my drink. He didn't apologize or try to help. The other one"

Pros: "The Aeromexico staff is polite and respectful. There were movies available on the flight."
Cons: "At first we were told we needed to pay an additional fee for departure tax. I researched this issue ahead of time and knew the departure tax is now included in the ticket price--it has been that way for a couple years. We had to explain that to the Aeromexico agent. But to her credit, she looked into it and eventually agreed we did not have to pay the extra fee. It cost $65 for an extra bag. Seems steep but whatever, we paid it. The gate changed but no one told the ticket counter. When we arrived at the gate, dozens of other passengers were there but the electronic board stated the flight was at a different gate. Aeromexico staff needed to look into it to discover the gate had been moved. Not impressed with their internal communications. The flight departed about 40 minutes late. Not bad. The food was awful. Could only eat the cookie."

Pros: "Late and made a 1 hour layover to a 10 hour layover."

Pros: "I definitely like how the boarding procedures take place with AeroMexico. You enter the aircraft from the front and back which makes the procedure run faster and a bit smoother. The aircraft is comfortable but the seat appear to be old. The food is actually better than I first thought it would be. I been to Japan and Hong Kong and the food on AeroMexico tastes better. The availability of videos are limited in comparison to Deltas and American International media library."
Cons: "The aircraft needs to be cleaner. The USB charger on two of the seats were not functioning. The video monitor for my seat did not function even after the flight attendant supposedly reset the monitor."

Pros: "Cheap flight, ability to pay upgrade."
Cons: "Check in is never possible online in Mexico City. Then Aeromexico checkin tellers are relatively disinterested. I've flown Aeromexico almost 20 times this year, please change the friggin food! A cheese and ham croissant, baby carrots and a snickers bar! Weak."

Cons: "Social distancing"

Pros: "None stop flight"
Cons: "Delay and unorganized boarding."

Pros: "Crew was good. I slept and they didn't bother me."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

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!"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "British Airways is impossible to get in touch with! We had a 2 hour delays so I missed the connection from London to Edinburgh and now I can’t get ahold of an agent to inquire for standby. So instead I get to wait 9 hours for the next flight out."

Cons: "Being on time for once"

Pros: "It got us there"

Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Cons: "4 hours delayed"

Pros: "I had to sprint from customs in terminal D to skyrail then skyrail terminal A to gate 33, to make my flight. Could not see gate 33 but heard your staff shout out, "San Antonio"? Very grateful they saw me running or else I would have missed my flight."

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Cons: "never made the flight. a day of misery thanks to poor communication within one world, AA rigidity, and chaotic long lines at FlightConnections, Heathrow."

Cons: "Flight from Columbus was delayed due to crew member family emergency. AA said I would miss my connection in Charlotte. The only alternate connection was too late to complete the trip. I nearly canceled the trip. I reboarded and made my connection with 10 minutes to spare. Also, my destination (Greenville) was only 90 miles from Charlotte, the connecting airport (unbeknownst to me). AA should have offered the option of driving to my destination."

Pros: "Crew and other personnel"
Cons: "I was not able to select a seat 24 hours before flight"

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

Cons: "The crew was abrupt, harsh, spoke down to the passengers, sighed, rolled their eyes, etc. It's their job to serve drinks, and attend to passenger requests and needs. They made it seem like they were being put upon to get a glass of hot water or coffee. If someone asked what type of juice they had, they rolled their eyes and answered rudely. No one smiled and seemed friendly"

Cons: "delayed"

Cons: "Wifi was not working in the airplane unfortunately. You could connect to it but it was not working at all for anybody '"

Cons: "."

Cons: "Delayed like 5 times, finally canceled. Rerouted thru additional stops than bought."

Pros: "I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!"
Cons: "I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag."

Cons: "I reached the Lima airport an hour before domestic flight from Lima to Cusco. The lady in charge told me the gate was closed. I told her it was an hour before and i had valid tickets and she was not ready to listen to anything. Horrible service ! Who closes gates to a flight an hour before ?"

Cons: "Flight delay impacted a lot of other travel plans. No compensation for long delays"

Cons: "Very turbulent day."

Pros: "Everything was very nice."

Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"

Pros: "Efficient crew, knew their business, executed their functions well."
Cons: "Small planes are inherently less comfortable, but that just goes with the package. Nothing you can do about it."

Cons: "As stated above, we never made it to Liberia (where we had family waiting for us). We had to fly first to Panama and then to San Jose and figure out a new rental car situation, as we already had one booked in Liberia."

Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."

Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."

Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"

Pros: "Everyone involved in making sure that everyone's travel EXPerience was superior; is to be given high praise."
Cons: "N/A..............................................,"

Cons: "Delay in departing Pittsburgh and also in landing in Newark. Boarding in Newark was put in a corner and United personal at the alternate counter was not polite. Delay landing in Venice and apparently at higher speed than normal, which created alarm at the firefighting statin in Marco Polo's airport."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""

Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."

Cons: "The passenger in the seat next to mine rented a tablet from United and proceeded to spend the entire night playing games or watching movies -- he never turned it off the entire flight. The glare from the tablet made it impossible for me to sleep or even nap on the flight. I asked the fellow if he would mind dimming the screen but he told me that wasn't possible. If United could put dimmable screens on the tablets it would help create an environment conducive to sleep, which is what most passengers want on a redeye flight. Alternatively, privacy screens would cut down on the shared glare. As it was, the flight was a nightmare."

Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."

Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"

Cons: "Understandable they could not help about weather, but was terrible about keeping us updated."

Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."

Cons: "I had no issues with my flights but my bag was damaged to the point I can no longer use it. They asked for volunteers to check their carry on due to a full flight (not my problem) so I did the nice thing and checked my small hard-case carry on never thinking it could get damaged that badly. It was only 2-3 years old and not only did the wheel come off but it cracked a portion of the hard case which came off as well. To make it worse when I called to ask what I should do to get compensation they told me the wrong thing and would only let me talk to people in call centers who wouldn't really answer my questions."

Cons: "boarding took WAY too long."

Pros: "After I boarded, the flight experience was fine for a 16 hour flight. Service was great and helpful, lacked wifi but the inflight entertainment kept me satisfied. All together was pleasant."
Cons: "This flight started out a little bumpy. When I got to the gate I purchased 2 bottles of water (INSIDE SECURITY RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE GATE) only to find out at the end of the jetway, like 100 steps from where I purchased them, I had to give them up. Who would of thought, why would a human want 2 bottles of water before boarding a 16 hour flight, weird right, so that was really frustrating and just a plain waist of money. Thanks UNITED..."

Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."

Cons: "It's too bland and they charge you for your luggage. The ticket wasn't cheap to begin with."

Cons: "This flight didn't happen."

Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."

Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."

Cons: "Very small plane. I have to valet my carry on which meant removing all my medicine (I am a cancer patient) and my camera and carry them on board with me."

Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."

Pros: "It flew."

Pros: "united customer service quickly booked new flight for second leg as I was not going to make it in time"
Cons: "I did not like waking up super early in the morning only to sit at airport for 3 hours because an escape hatch leaked and got the radios wet. only to have the nearest tech over an hour away. and for him to not be able to do anything but let it dry out. Then the flight attendants did not even do a beverage service."

Cons: "The fact the flight was delayed 3 hours was nothing to like! It messed up my whole day!"

Cons: "The plane never cooled to below 80 degrees"

Pros: "Courteous staff."
Cons: "Feet were so cold on the entire flight."

Pros: "The flight to OHare was fine. No problems whatever. There was no entertainment. The juice was ok."
Cons: "The snack I could not eat for dietary restrictions."

Pros: "The easiness of the airline to adapt to the fact that we will be going late and the swiftness in organize all the passengers in a way that no one will miss their connection flight"
Cons: "I had a child with me and I was sat in the row before the emergency exit, where the seats were rigid and my child was not able to sleep at all. Making it uncomftable to all around her."

Pros: "Being able to watch movies and shows was really nice and it made the flight go by a lot faster. I was also able to avoid motion sickness from watching it!"
Cons: "The plug on my seat for the headphones didn't work unless you held it in, so I think that was broken."
