Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Plane was late Internet never worked Movies couldn’t be paused or started on my schedule"
Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."

Pros: "JetBlue strives to give the clients a great flying experience, from check in to bag drops to flying, the food and drinks, exiting and pick up is just a pleasure, would for sure recommend Jet Blue!"
Pros: "Completely exceeded our expectations! First time flying JetBlue across the country and we will definitely continue to use this airline as much as possible when taking these long flights. Everyone was friendly, the seats were comfortable and spacious, and it was just overall a great experience from beginning to end."

Pros: "Leg room was great and bathrooms were kept clean and well stocked"
Cons: "Delayed departures on all flights of my itinerary, outdated airplane, and cabin crew member, Chris, did not smile or acknowledge requests throughout flight."
Pros: "Price of ticket is about it."
Cons: "From the time I got to the gate 90 minutes before flight to the time I got off it was terrable. Delays before boarding with no explanation then the same continued onboarding. First it was waiting for bags. Strange when there's a 2 hour+ delay that all the bags weren't there? Then waiting for paperwork followed by the part they needed was incorrect and a new one was on it's way from the hanger.. Finally departed 1 hour plus later. The plane was an old cattle car. Free TV didn't work right, so at did not recline (no it wasn't an exit row.). Most of the crew and gate attendants were rude and indifferent except for on flight attendant. The entire row of seats didn't recline at all. She was very apologetic and acknowledged it was uncomfortable especially on a 5+hour flight. She did offer us something to eat, blankets earbud. Still my back was killing me upon arrival at Phoenix. JEt Blue. Get your act together. This is unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and funny and offered many times for anyone to let them know if they needed anything."
Cons: "TV didn’t work. It was a long flight with no entertainment. The crew was aware there was a problem with about twenty TVs and tried a reboot but mine never worked."
Pros: "Free tv, snack, and drink. A good amount of leg room. The flight was on time."
Pros: "Everything is good except the flight delay"
Cons: "Flight delay. No movies"
Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early! The staff are always great, free drinks and snacks, plus personal entertainment for all. One of my planes was brand spanking new - it was gorgeous and oh so comfy! I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Pros: "Waiting on the tarmac both leaving NYC and when landing in Phoenix was bad"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The easy breezy"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Paid $70 for a ticket that provides a seat that had a broken TV. No power outlets as well is annoying."
Pros: "Leg space, free carry on, nice staff, good snacks"
Cons: "15 minute delay"
Pros: "Everyone seems to be complaining as the temperature inside the must be set to slow cook!"
Cons: "It was just a mechanical issue that forced our plane to turn around 2 hours already into the flight, return to JFK, and then wait another two hours to board a new flight to go to PHX. So a planned 10 pm arrival in PHX turned into 6 am. I'm not sure there's anything that could have been done other than checking for that situation before we departed originally (if possible), and maybe being able to land somewhere closer than having to return all the way to JFK. I know JetBlue doesn't have a ton of locations or planes yet, so our options may have been limited. We did receive a $100 credit, but it was a pretty painful flight, basically turning into a red eye after departing originally at 6 pm. Again, I'm not sure if there were any other options, just wanted to report my experience. My flights have typically been on time with JetBlue and I am a Mosaic member. It may have helped if there was better communication back at the JFK airport (knowing it would be two hours instead of thinking we were getting right back on the plane), maybe we could have relaxed in a restaurant or something. It was just exhausting waiting and getting later and later. There isn't an Admirals Club or anywhere relaxing for passengers to wait in a circumstance like that. Thanks."
Cons: "I don't appreciate being force-fed a product I'm not interested in. If you're going to Hock goods, do it as part of the initial announcemens not in the middle of the flight."
Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."
Pros: "Boarded quickly and easily. Theee was a mix up with the catering staff and it was handled faster than expected."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Inadequate food service. Bad entertainment options. No power supply."
Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."
Pros: "A lot of seat space, abundance of complementary snacks & drinks, & personal television screens for coach. To top all off; in flight crew was wonderful."
Pros: "Not much. No room"
Cons: "C above"
Pros: "You can pretty much count on having a great crew with JetBlue This flight's embodied patience: patience with the lady who wanted to bring a smartecarte loaded with diaper bags, blankies, handbags and stuffed animals onto the plane; patience with the baby in the first row who cried throughout the entire boarding process and patience witht; patience with the lady in the first row (who didn't have a seat in front of her to put her handbag containing a small service dog underneath) and two, I guess, wanted to keep the dog on her lap during take off. It was a plane full of first time flyers, with resulting chaos. And they kept their cool throughout."
Cons: "It was a plane full of first-time flyers, with resulting chaos. it's not Jetblue's fault that people are chaotic and babies cry loudly when they are in unfamiliar surroundings. But it sure makes it trying for people who are sharing the same cramped space. You don't realize that there's an art to being a good passenger until you see passengers who are unskilled at being passengers. I know this sounds very unkind, but it was a late flight."
Pros: "The legroom was great! Crew were fantastic and accommodating, boarding went smoothly, and I liked getting a bottle of water and snack. Excellent compared to airlines that I have flown."
Cons: "Entertainment was ok compared to delta. I'm used to more movie options and the screen quality could be better. But, the TV options were ok."
Pros: "We loved the service and leg room!"
Pros: "The process. The flight. The crew."
Cons: "Our entertainment TV didn't work"
Pros: "I like the flight attendants beautiful and friendly people"
Cons: "The landing was rough."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room space, crew tried to do their job the best they can."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, as result missed an international connection flight, had to fight to get a hotel accommodation with Jet Blue people in JFK. Flight delay caused lots of problem to get connecting flight/ shuttle connection. Very poor service."
Pros: "Ever since the partnership with Amazon, JetBlue has offered a superior selection of inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Flight it self was fine."
Cons: "3 hour delay on flight. Should have sent email or something so we don't waste time sitting around at airport"
Pros: "The crew was funny and entertaining. Good laughs always make a flight easier."
Cons: "The gate was changed without any notification to me. Thought that would change on my boarding pass as well."

Cons: "Slight delay"
Pros: "Really nice crew"
Cons: "The flight could’ve been on time and not delayed 24 hours"
Pros: "I was fortunately upgraded to 1st class. The flight attendant was adequate. However, did not live up to the level of service I have come to expect."

Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."
Pros: "Plane was on-time, that was the only thing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "First, I was charged $100 because my bag was 3 kilos over weight. Second the seats in Comfort Plus were old. The recline was weak and there were no foot rests. For a cheaper flight on American, the seats have those amenities making it easier to sleep. Plus the food was inedible."
Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"
Pros: "Inflight crew"
Cons: "The crew member that handled my stroller roughly and tore a hole in the canvas. The canvas was also black with grime from the bottom of the plane it appears. The stroller canvas was expensive and brand new."
Cons: "Very late .missed connection. Agents in Detroit were worthless to get us on different connection"
Cons: "Plane was late numerous times. Boarding was painful"
Pros: "The bag service"
Cons: "The flight delays"
Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."
Pros: "I like the efficiency of the boarding process & the courtesy of the crew."
Cons: "Small overhead bins. No entertainment facilities on the seats. Although I wasn't expecting a movie for an hour-and-a-half flight, at least the airplane should have amenities to provide music so that passengers bringing their own headphones can listen to some music."
Cons: "On time, free upgrade."
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful. Some turbulence due to having to fly over tropical storm. Like the games and movies available."
Cons: "The cabin was very warm."
Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"
Pros: "The staff was polite and snacks were good (healthy options)."
Cons: "Nothing was terrible, but due to the short flights I assume they don’t worry about having planes with entertainment available."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Pros: "Like the airplane - Boeing 757. More comfortable than the 737."
Cons: "Don't like the towel dispenser location and function. Can't find it when standing and a bunch of them come out at one time."
Pros: "We took off, flew and landed without incident. Crew was polite."
Cons: "Even though we booked months ahead, we weren’t provided seat assignments until we got to the gate. We were put in the very last row with less room than normal and no window."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Media kept freezing. They had to reboot the system several times."
Pros: "The crew and overhead storage."
Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Pros: "Thank God I was able to get a refund"
Pros: "The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile."
Cons: "I didn't like the food."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"
Pros: "When we landed and I was able to get off the plane"
Cons: "The guy in front of me reclining his sea before take off and the crew not correcting him so I had to which I did. He told the crew "he had the right" Crew refused to correct him because he was on a buddy pass so the rules didn't apply to him."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff."
Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"
Pros: "Loved it all. That's good advice above :)"
Cons: "It was a blast!"
Cons: "Not only were there delays but they wouldn't allow me to upgrade to first class even though there were seats available, they said "oh with the package you purchased it's not available" Then why was I able to upgrade to first class for the other portion of my flight? The customer service was awful too, transferred 5 times on the phone for 20 mins to not get any help and for them to uncheck me in, I had to check in for my flight again."
Cons: "I purchased my tickets about 5 weeks before my trip and got to the airport 2 hrs prior. I recieved no seat assignment, just a boarding pass that said request seat. So I requested a seat. Then the people were rude and told me to come back, so I did about 45 min later and asked again, they were rude again and said come back later. The third time I got s seat assigned but again, they were very rude. Won't fly delta again."
Cons: "No entertainment - just a long boring flight. Should have some sort of entertainment for the longer flights."
Pros: "Organized and smooth"
Cons: "How crowded I felt. Both flights I had an aisle seat but it felt like a middle seat. The people in the middle didn't give me much personal space."
Pros: "No delays, quick flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "They could have better snacks."
Cons: "It didnt have enough entertainment it needs more options pf movies I didn't like I couldn't seat with my grandchild we were separated"
Pros: "My luggage got lost with my medication in it. I am diabetic type 2"
Cons: "The airline staff has ZERO customer service skills. They treated me very poorly every time I asked them about my luggage. I have NEVER been treated this way while traveling -taking into consideration that I travel for work-"
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Cons: ". The tem let me wait for ever in something I wanted to ask as a favor they said wait a second and never come back to ask what did I need."
Cons: "Flying Exonomy on such a long flight"
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
Pros: "Crew was very supportive. My son went to eat , but distance to food court was very far. It took him a long time to order , and almost missed our flight."
Cons: "flying from Medellin to Orlando, it will take in a direct fly 4 hours max. It took us 9 hours to get to Orlando. The waiting time in Panama was to long (4 hours, more than what it will take the whole fly if it was direct). When we land i took forever (25 min) to reach the point where we can get off from the airplane. Then it took 1 and half hour to get our suitcases."
Cons: "Too small airplane, there was no entertainment, and the breakfast was bad"
Cons: "The space for the legroom was to tight. I had to stand up several times to stretch my legs, they were getting cramps. I'm only 5'8"."
Pros: "Good food"
Pros: "Nothing in special"
Cons: "Even though I checked in online, had to go through a very bureaucratic process to check in the bags, reallybad process, lack of design thinking!"
Pros: "Attendants were polite and helpful food was good"
Pros: "The crew is very nice. The flights were on time. Direct flights from Panama to Brasilia- Brazil. There was enough room for carry ons. Free alcooholic drinks."
Cons: "The airport crew spoke Spanish to me, even after seeing my Brazilian passport. I understand Spanish, but their gate and check-in crew should be trained to speak English to avoid confusion with non Spanish speaking passengers. The seats are hard and I never got a pillow. One movie option and long time with nothing playing on tv."
Cons: "One hour ddelay no piñots"
Cons: "El abordaje"
Pros: "The boarding process was efficient. The food was warm."
Cons: "-I didn't received a web check access email. -my bag is currently missing, I was frustrated because I wait a long time (over 1 hour) to get a claim form completed."

Pros: "friendly staff, meal provided, no extra charge for exit row seating, plenty of overhead room for bags, good in flight entertainment"

Pros: "The food The service"
Pros: "comfortable seats ,nice and roomy. staff attentive to my needs"
Pros: "El vuelo salio a tiempo La tripulacion es muy amable"
Cons: "mejorar la comida Hacer mas confortables los asientos"
Cons: "No hay comida para vegetarianos"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above. Even after a long layover and a change of planes, it was still the cramped seats and an old plane."
Pros: "Thank you for allowing instrument , guitar, in cabin. Richard"
Cons: "Food only ok ! Metal forks & spoons great! I think it is better to load the plane from the back foreword ."
Pros: "Good interteiment. U atención good."
Cons: "the only "bad" thing is the little amount allowed in bagagge"
Pros: "It was absolutely horrible customer service. not to mention we arrived with 20 minutes until take off and they still would not let any of us try and catch our flight that was two gates down and very easily obtainable. especially with no checked luggage. I tried to get on an overnight to get me to New Orleans early the nextmorning so i would not miss the festival I already bought tickets for and they would only comp us a new flight with one connection when it was THEIR fault. as we were figuring out new flights, I heard the final boarding call for my flight....it was absolutely terrible. the customer service reps did not have answers for most of our questions. Then when we were leaving to go to hotel the shuttle was a junk show. one of the drivers walked off and was arguing with a copa airlines representative. when he finally came back some peoples bags were mixed in other shuttles and we had to all get out and get on another larger shuttle and put all the luggage on the smaller ones. The only perk was that the hotel was nice for the 9 hours we had there. I am not sure I will ever fly Copa again."
Cons: "Drink service only came twice in 6 hours! Entertainment was broken. Food was overcooked and bland. Attendants were unhelpful. Terrible airline."
Cons: "There's not enough monitors to all the passengers"
Cons: "Boarding at Panama was a mess. Completely disorganized chaos. So bad on the other end there were immigration people screaming at the crew "Copa - help your passengers a little"."
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "nothing was bad"
Cons: "I didn't like the food... it was either chicken with pasta or meat with rice.. I know there are vegetarian options, but then you never get to eat pasta..."
Pros: "Overall it was good experience. Fast boarding, good in-flight food and beverage selection. The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "For some reason this airline for the Miami flight uses their older aircrafts and being this such a popular route they should consider on using their newer model that have more space, individual entertainment and overall are more comfortable."
Pros: "The food and service was good."
Cons: "I was not impressed with the overall movie selection. More choices would have been good."
Pros: "Muy bien"
Pros: "I didn't fly because I needed to extend my stay....I tried to reschedule my flight fot Return in Aug. but it cost more to reschedule that one way flight than I can buy a R/T ticket. for. How is that? You tell me. My initinal flight with Copa from SF to PC was great and I will fly Copa again...."
Cons: "This is the worst plane I have ever flown on. The space between seats is so small I couldn't even sit straight. I am a tall man and thankfully the flight was not full because I was forced to sit sideways the whole time. I will try in the future to never take a copa airlines plane for any amount of time for any trip."
Pros: "Everything ran on time, quick flight considering how far SFO is from Panama City, comfortable seat for sleeping."
Pros: "Flight times and connections were good for me. No long layover"
Cons: "No complaint"
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Food could be better, but then again, we should have low expectations from all airplane food (regardless of carrier). Boarded about 10-15 minutes late so our take off was about 30 minutes late."
Pros: "quick flight"
Cons: "captain must of thought we needed to freeze, extremely cold"
Pros: "How nice not to be charged for every little thing!! The food was great and plentiful. The movies were current and various. Service was excellent!"
Pros: "The duration of the flight, nothing to do with the airline"
Cons: "I was forced to check a bag in when I had flown previously the week before with the same carry on. $50 spent for nothing in my opinion. Per the supervisor over head bin size does not change yet my bag was "too big" like I said I had flown literally 4 days before this trip and had no problems with my bag fitting nor did any of the flight attendants say anything. I am just annoyed. Also I didn't know that I would fly American as it's through Alaska originally, maybe that was my lack of attention to detail. The carry on situation is what irritated me the most. This is also not the first time that I've had a problem with American Air."
Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Connection from SAN to PHX seemed cheaply made."
Pros: "I liked the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendants going down the middle aisle and bumping me as I had an aisle seat."
Pros: "Boarding lasted over an hour"
Cons: "I regret flying with American. They have consistent problems with every flight from seating to delayed flights"
Pros: "No drama- always great flying from Long Beach"
Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Friendly, efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and aisles very tight."
Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."
Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."
Pros: "Staff did seem empathetic and offered substantial tips on how to find out about connecting flights. Also a promotional offer for the aa credit card had a sweetened points offer. I also liked the general structure of the plane made it easy to see if the lavatory was occupied or not."
Cons: "Plane pulled away from the gate knowing we were delayed (or so it seemed). Subsequent delays meant we were stuck on the plane and couldn't briefly disembark."
Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."
Pros: "Flew 1st class, everything excellent"
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Pros: "just Ok for everything."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Pros: "Great flight, on time, seat upgrade"
Pros: "Quick little trip from San Diego to Phoenix. Crew made the extra effort to keep the plane cool despite the 120 degree temps in Phoenix."
Pros: "Slept through the entire flight, ground crew got me from gate to seat ASAP."
Cons: "Everything was good, so no problems to report here!"
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Pros: "Great crew on Sacto flight. More comfortable than Phoenix flight because not full."
Cons: "Had to wait for crew delayed by weather. No gate when we got to SMF. Luggage took way too long to come off. Lots of turbulence - not your fault - but I HATE it."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Needed to return to gate to refuel after aborted takeoff attempt. Thi"
Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed more than one hour. Poor communications by pilots. No recognition by any crew members that it was Father's Day!!!"
Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"
Pros: "Baggage drop agent in Oakland excellent Great A319 w power outlets Thanks"
Cons: "Provide food would be better"
Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."
Pros: "Business seats comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was friendly. Not always professional."
Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made my travel pleasant"
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."
Pros: "I likes that I was able to pick my seat for the same price."
Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to crew."
Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Pros: "Updated interior. Comfortable chairs. Friendly staff. Pilot communicated well."
Cons: "No charging capabilities for devices. Limited food options."
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."
Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."
Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."
Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"
Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."
Cons: "Single-handedly some of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve ever sat in. I’m not sure if there’s any cushion but my rear end was killing me after 2 1/2 hours."
Pros: "At least I made it back home in one day. The airline honored our business ageeement."
Cons: "I waited for a wheele chair that was requested from day one, but the wheeled chair never arrived. I had to venture out on foot despite my resent back surgery. It took me tree times more the time that usually takes me to make it to my destination. I only thank God for protecting me through this day."
Cons: "Small old plane without any entertainment."
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew and the service... Top notch"
Cons: "No tv on plain no free wifi like it was advertised"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Getting in so late the rental car offices were closed"
Pros: "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
Cons: "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "I MISSED IT BECAUSE UNITED DELAYED MY FLIGHT"
Cons: "UNITED DELAYED MY FLIGHT TO SAN FRANCISCO SO I HAVE NO IDEA."
Pros: "good entertainment through the united app"
Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"
Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"
Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"
Pros: "Being up in the sky so cool."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."
Cons: "Don't lie to customers and tell us there is a 10 minutes delay, when we can all see that the plane we're supposed to leave on hasn't even arrived yet. Give us honest delay times so that we can make choices about using the bathroom, getting a bite to eat or stretching our legs."
Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."
Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."
Pros: "They were kind enough to hold the flight as it was the only one today to Tucson!!"
Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"
Pros: "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."
Pros: "My son was under 18 and was flying alone. He missed flight because boarding was complete and he was 5 min late. His next flight was delayed and he didn't get back to Tucson untill 9 p.m. I, parent did not get to escort child to the gate because my pass did not have fast pass stamp. Very poor experience and airport staff was not helpful."
Pros: "The crew were nice and even if they were stressed didn't show it one bit."
Cons: "With a flight based out of Denver, I'd have expected you to be a LITTLE more prepared for the inclement weather, and not be delayed over 12 hours with thousands of other people."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. Both going and return were so on time, it was amazing. On the way home the in flight entertainment was out for the duration of the flight and nobody in the crew really took the time to address it - thought that was a little odd. Thanks again!"
Pros: "Crew professional, a little bag of snacks and one cup of beverage so nothing outstanding, but then again nothing substandard than anyone else does nowadays. This flight arrived and departed right on time, as all of United flights did for me and right near Thanksgiving travel time too."
Pros: "Service was great, flight attendants are awesome. I did not have any inconveniences boarding or with my belongings."
Cons: "Food was extremely expensive. Snacks were so simple. Had to pay for entertainment. Also paid for my baggage, i thought it was included. It was a carry on and had to check that in, absurd."
Pros: "The only thing that was enjoyable was the economy plus seat that I was in."
Cons: "On the flight from Tucson to Houston we experienced United's personal entertainment where you could use your iPad to watch movies. On the reverse flight, this flight that I'm reviewing, this amenity was not offered. As far as boring goes, the TSA in Houston was rude in the boarding sign said pre-boarding only so we were waiting and I almost missed the flight because the sign never changed."
Pros: "Muy buen servicio"
Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"
Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in landing. I paid to watch tv which should be free on international flights... It use to be and they kept making PA announcements the entire flight. It was very very disruptive."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and got us to our destination safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding gate changed."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and polite. Brought the drink cart around a couple times to make sure everyone was satisfied beverage wise."
Cons: "With it being a smaller plane there wasn't a whole lot of room for a 6'3" guy to sit comfortably for a long stretch. Although understandable for the size of plane it was my only dislike of the flight so overall a very good job."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. There was no option for on flight entertainment (despite it being an international flight). Probably would never fly United internationally again."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
Pros: "Very smooth from boarding to landing"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The flight got delay because of that I had problems at customs and immigration"
Pros: "Communication between crew and passengers"
Pros: "I like how I made it to my destination even after a huge blizzard in Denver."
Cons: "We were really delayed while on the air plane and the seats were not as comfortable as before. I understand that the delay is not the crews fault but actually DIA, but it was my least favorite part of the trip because it made me late to an appointment in Tucson."
Cons: "The tv and movie did not work"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "The flight attendants were almost never around. Beverages were only offered once and then one additional time for water only. The seats are beyond uncomfortable with a laughable amount of leg room. You needed to pay for the entertainment including the flight map! Nothing was provided (pillows, blankets) even though it was a red-eye, international flight. United has been the worst airline I have been on and I will stay away for future flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple timess"
Pros: "Nice terminal"
Cons: "Late on all flights, staff bored and unconcerned in San Francisco. United is off my carrier list for future travel."
Pros: "That alone is a compliment these days. Flying is just not fun any more. When I get where I'm going on time, that's about all I expect."
