When I arrived it was a Delta flight and they told they don't allow bicycles and that i had to play $150. Aerolineas website and kayak clearly says that bicycles were free on my flight. I show the agent my ticket and that no where it said delta to consider what he was saying since it is an alliance but i was not informed about it.

Cons: "I received a message flight would be early but it was actually late...luckily it did not affect my connection"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and gave us free headphones and adjusted our seats so we could sit together as a family. There were no delays to ATL just 48 hours after the power outage the regular scheduled flight schedule had resumed. Great Flight, Great Crew!"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude. I was skipped got beverages twice and when I rang the bell the flight attendant gave me a lot of attitude. No one likes to fly for 10 hours, I get it, but it was extremely unprofessional."

Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Cons: "Delta allowed us to board knowing of possible weather delays at the destination! Once on board the captain announced that we could not take off due to weather at the destination! Why didn't they let us just sit in the airport until Delta knew one way or another? Been sitting, trapped in the plane, no AC, no announcement from the flight crew. Could be waiting in relative comfort inside the airport!!"
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Delta doesn't seem to have a good system. Plane was packed to the last seat. Congrats! No food for purchase. Will avoid next time."
Cons: "We were delayed to redo maintenance paperwork from a previous repair. This should not hold up flights and cause the plan to loose its slot for takeoff"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "The good the crew and the bed"
Cons: "The overheads were noisey and loud and made it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "We are generally disappointed with the service on US airlines. The international leg of this trip was impressive. Great service, nice attitude, quick with food service, decent wine and beer, etc. We fly international a few times a year and after this experience we'll go Delta again."
Pros: "Smooth easy flight"
Cons: "I arrived for my layover early, and noticed there was another flight currently boarding for my destination. I asked the boarding attendant if I could just get on this flight rather than waiting 2 1/2 hours for the next one. She said there were open seats on this flight but it would be a $50 fee to switch. This makes NO SENSE! I was standing there with a ticket purchased for the exact same itinerary, ready to board this flight with open seats, and I would have to pay extra? When this switch would open up a seat for the later flight for someone else in the same situation? Just a ridiculous way to charge people extra money for nothing. Very dissapoibted in Delta for this."

Pros: "Very friendly service and very helpful even though there is a language difference, they were great in making me feel comfortable."

Pros: "Excellent service a board also the crew very polite, educated and helpful all the time with the passengers"

Pros: "Flight on time, easy bording process"
Cons: "The day before departure I prepared for an easy checking process at the airport & consulted aeromexico website about baggage and called Your customer service dpmt to ensure I understood the limitations in size, number and weight for my baggage. However at the check-in the weight allowance in cabin for the 2 pieces was the weight for one carry on not for this and the personal item I was told by phone."
Pros: "I liked how staright-forward the whole process was. No different if I was flying anywhere else. I didn't feel like I didn't know what was going on because I didn't speak Spanish."

Cons: "Toilets were too small. Rows on this flight were to close together. Boarding very slow."
Cons: "I never took the flight since Kayak’s blames me for not in putting the correct name of the passenger. Your policy on name change is ridiculous. I never input my name as the passenger. The ticket was for my aunt. Kayak has been the worst experience I have received."
Pros: "Great experience overall on this flight, only problem was that my lie-flat seat was broken and would only recline. Good food, great crew. Staff at Aeromexico Premier Salon Lounge were OUTSTANDING! Food could have more assortment, but was better than most lounges in the USA."
Cons: "lie-flat seat was broken and would only recline, so didn't really get what I paid for. I wasn't the only person with the problem, as 2 other seats were the same. MEX airport desperate need renovation. It looks like something from the 60's that hasn't been maintained well. Not up to standard for a country's Capital City."
Cons: "THE FOOd"
Pros: "free meal and free alcoholic beverage!"
Cons: "thought your carry on luggage rules were more relaxed. however we ended up getting charged an extra $80 for 2 carry on bags that were overweight. never had an overweight restriction on a carry on before."
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait in line to check in. then had to rush to gate to make it 10 minutes before take off. Charged us $50 for I am not sure what. Only had 2 carry on bags Had reserved earlier seats but was not honored. Sat in last row on plane next to bathrooms. I will never take this f....n airlines again. Rather pay more or be inconvenienced than deal with this incompetent, greedy so called airlines."
Cons: "1) we lined up to board on time, and then were told one crew member was late- 2 hour delay. 2) because several dozen aeromexica employees were on the flight and boarded first with tons of carry on luggage, all passenger carryons had to be checked, 3) upon arrival at ord at 1am, over 2 hour wait for luggage, with no explanation by staff"

Pros: "Had food"
Cons: "-CARRYON is limited to 10kg -Online check-in requires additional check-in at airport -Mexico city airport is poorly laid out and finding anyone willing to help tell you where your gate is practically impossible. -gate announcements for transferare made 45 minutes prior to takeoff. - have to go through Mexican customs and security for simple transit/connection"
Pros: "AeroMexico ended up with the best rates for travel between U.S. and South America. I liked the complimentary entertainment system ( flight would have seemed longer without it ) and the complimentary food. The flights were on time ( even though I realize that there are things beyond one's control at times ), and the staff was courteous."
Cons: "I haven't anything negative to say at this time. Good job."

Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"
Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Pros: "Flights lately have been a huge disappointment but American Airlines was great! Crew was so pleasant and helpful,food was good and the "entertainment" was too! I'll definitely fly with them again!"
Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "The staff were fine and boarding went relatively smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was dated and small. There were no individual screens for entertainment. I've flown internationally with American before and felt this specific experience was worse."
Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."
Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."
Pros: "Nice head rest (although it did not stay bent at angle, so could actually rest against it)."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath."
Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."
Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."
Pros: "Crew was excellent but it was literally the most uncomfortable plane ride I have ever been. There was even an empty seat in the middle and I couldn't sleep at all. The seats were super shOrr and the headrests sucked"
Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"
Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"
Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"
Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"
Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"
Cons: "We were delayed for 6 hours due to a maintenance issue. Horrible customer service"
Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"
Pros: "Couldn't of been more impressed especially after being hung out by Southwest!!!"
Cons: "We have flown to Europe recently on SAS and that airline was so much more comfortable than airberlin. Things we missed: personal TVs on the seats, good leg room (airberlin was quite cramped), and small attentions like a disposable towelette. I got no sleep on airberlin."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Experienced 4 hour delay with mechanical and weather problems. But glad they put safety first"

Pros: "Food, entertainment and free checked bag. Can ask for more!"
Pros: "In flight service."
Cons: "The first check in kiosk associate was turning us away because we reached 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure.

Ultimately the flight was three hours late."
Pros: "Food, blanket & pillow,"
Cons: "Most of the video screens did not work. Long flight with no entertainment!"

Pros: "We'll coordinated."

Pros: "Seat to myself"
Cons: "Lil bumpy but there were a lot of clouds"

Pros: "Excellent as expected."
Pros: "Good entertainment for a long flight."
Cons: "A power jack could come handing."
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Pros: "The flight overall was great, easy to board and de-board, and a smooth process from start to finish."

Cons: "i missed my flight because my flight left Toronto late"
Pros: "Pilot was very happy and friendly! Very informative throughout flight."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 40 times by other passengers and flight attendants."
Pros: "not a damn thing"
Cons: "Weather delays are a typical part of travel. What's not typical are 5+ hour delays and sitting on the tarmac and watching your connection take off without you. First Class seats morphed into Economy center seats the next day, with nary a hotel room in sight. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "The flight was very hot and uncomfortable!"
Cons: "This flight never happened it continued to get canceled and canceled!!"
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "We got on board, waited 20 minutes. Capt said it was a bad reverser, and we were waiting on paperwork for 15 minutes. Long story short, they make us leave the plane after 2.5 hours. Then we wait in the airport for another 2.5 hours. I missed my connection and spent 10 hours in Chicago."
Pros: "The flight attendant finally took care of it after I complained a couple of times."
Cons: "That you changed our seats, and, that there was no room in any of the overhead bins. So, the flight attendant told me that I needed to fight my way through the people coming toward me back up the aisle and check every overhead bin all the way back up to see if there was room for my one suitcase. Others had brought more than one bag up there. Finally they checked my one carry on bag. The ride was also really bumpy, worst that we've ever experienced. But that was due to weather conditions."
Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."

Cons: "Did not get connecting flights boarding pass from the beginning. Short connection time - was very stressful"
Cons: "Couldn't reserve/request a seat. Assigned to me About 1.5 hours prior to boarding. Had to wait Around the gate. Should have told me I would not have any choice. Could have walked around. Got a middle seat. It was a long flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant was great! Pleasant, polite and professional!"
Cons: "The flight from ORD to ABE was on a plane with expired maintenance logs or inspections? We were delayed 2 hours in arriving for what seemed like a pilots lax in paperwork. But what does a customer expect from an airline who knows they that customer by the balls?"
Pros: "We were tossed into the last row; I had no leg room and was constantly being bumped by people using the rest rooms. As a result it was a sleepless flight."
Pros: "Great boarding at ORD."
Cons: "My seat"
Pros: "Movie selection and delivery/access was very good"
Cons: "Seat legroom is insufficient. There was a water leak in the ceiling that dripped cold Wster on me for a portion of the trip."

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: "the flight attendant crew was super nice throughout the entire flight."
Cons: "the tvs weren't working for the all the seats, and the food was not very tasty."
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Nice flight attendants. Funny pilot."
Cons: "The lady at desk to board the flight made me check my carry on. I had assumed it was because the plane was full, but when I got on the plane there were more than adequate spots to stow more bags. There was a compartment across from my seat that remained open the entire flight. While I completely understand the need to check extra luggage when the plane is full, I was very upset when I saw it was not. I intentionally fly with a carry on for the convenience, and to be inconvenienced for absolutely no reason made me not want to fly with this company again for fear it could happen again in the future."
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and organised the connection between two flights very well under pressing circumstances when there was only 15 min between the flights and the boarding gates being in opposite ends of a big Munic airport"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 h, so we had to run through Munic airport for connected flight. Good sport, but rather tiresome."
Cons: "8 channels of looped shows and movies. Too long a flight for that...and then have to use my device to watch on the free part of the wifi.so no battery left. For this price? And I booked through Lufthansa but flew United. Bad form."
Cons: "The plane was tiny and the seats were tiny. Could not carry on a bag and it took a long time to get the bag back from having been gate checked."
Pros: "the japanese speaking flight attendant was exellent! she was very observant to passengers needs. i was also pleasantly surprised by the entertainment system."
Cons: "there was a flight delay due to maintenance, which was inconvenient."
Pros: "The trip had minimal turbulence. The landing was smooth."
Cons: "-The 767 was old. -It did not have any power ports for my laptop or cell phone. -The interior was old and dated, reminiscent of the 1980's. -The TV screen for entertainment seemed to be smaller than a Samsung Note 5. -The seats are unreasonably narrow and not comfortable. -I had an isle seat and my shoulder width is literally wider than the seats. -Every time the isle cart went by, it hit my left shoulder. -The seats in general seating are too small and were cramped. -God forbid if we had to egress out of the plane. -There were no adjustable head rests, like other airlines have. -The Flight Attendant for my section DID NOT make me feel like I was a valued customer, even though I paid over $1500 for flight. -She scolded me for asking "Why," when she TOLD me that I needed to sit in one seat, even though the seat next to me was vacant. She literally treated me like a child. - NOT COOL. Overall, in comparison to my last international flight, I WOULD NOT recommend United. I feel like I paid too much for my experience with United. Aer Lingus has better/newer aircraft, better cabin crew, better entertainment selections to include music and a selection of movies to watch at your convenience, more comfortable seats, provide a better environment, and a better value for your experience. Aer Lingus was also cheaper. So if you are reading this, please shop around if you are considering United to fly."
Pros: "Flight left on time crew friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Long flight could not get a diabetic meal !"
Cons: "It was delayed so I had to take another flight. I've been trying to get this flight refunded"
