Cons: "???"

Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."

Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."

Cons: "Took 20 min on the run way before deplaning at the gate. Luggage took 15 minutes to come. No entertainment."

Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"

Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"

Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."

Cons: "Long delay"

Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."

Pros: "Exceptional crew, easy boarding and flight"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Seemed understaffed at the airport, never anyone around to answer questions about why our plane wasn't even there until 20 minutes after we were supposed to have boarded. They finally showed up, but didn't mention that we'd be delayed (which I eventually found out thanks to a KAYAK alert). Kept telling us the flight would be 62 minutes, but it ended up taking forever. Probably not Allegiant's fault, but they acted like they wanted to hide the fact, rather than own up to it and apologize for the inconvenience as if they valued all of us as passengers."

Cons: "I love the changes that have taken place. I last flew with them 5 years ago and vowed too never fly with them again. Times have changed and they are a great Airline!!!"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly."
Cons: "the seats were pretty uncomfortable, that was my main problem with the flight."

Pros: "The plane was clean and crew was very friendly."

Cons: "Didn’t leave on time. Would be nice to get something complimentary for all the wasted time. Would like to be able to watch something"

Pros: "Everyone from desk to gate to crew were very friendly. I like alla carte airlines for thier value. I dont need a free soda for and extra $100 ticket price."

Cons: "Did not purchase any food and there was no entertainment offered"

Pros: "The speed"

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Charge for carry on and in flight snacks and drinks (sodas,juices,water)"

Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."

Pros: "No complaints about the trip to Newqrk. Everyone was very helpful and patient since I am an unexperienced flyer."
Cons: "I didn't like thinking I was paying one price then paying another or buying insurance that would have been useless since it doesn't cover anythIntg."

Pros: "The stewardess was great on trip up there and back!"

Cons: "Cramped seats, pretzels were kind of bland"

Pros: "Crew really polite and nice"
Cons: "Good flight"

Pros: "I did not like anything abut the trip. I guess if I have to come up with something good it could be that the trip ended without physical death... emotional and psychological death, to be sure, but not physical."
Cons: "The outrageous, unconscionable, customer unfriendly lack of leg room, general torture-like comfort levels of the seating, surly airline employees, vomit comet style landing, and spending enough time driving around the tarmac we probably could have just drove the plane there, skipping flying all together."

Pros: "Nothing, to be honest."
Cons: "Terrible boarding process (boarding groups one and two together for the first time, so even though we were group two priority, we did not get on until the middle of three and no overhead bin space left). There was no snack/beverage service. We did get a tiny bag of pretzels and were supposed to get either water or juice, but we never saw a beverage. Also, my seat's entertainment did not work. The worst was the HORRIBLE TINY ECON SEATS!!! Unless you are a child or a small woman/man, I would avoid this flight if at all possible. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight, and I fly a dozen times a year for the last 25 years."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The food not fit for human consumption"

Pros: "Quick boarding. Ontime departure."
Cons: "Very small servings of food."

Cons: "Wasted a lot of time for boarding. Not smooth at all"

Pros: "On time. Didn't have to wait that long for luggages to come out.."
Cons: "Flight attendant in United just standing idly, doesn't help you with carryons. No free meal for connecting flights with United even though it's meal time unlike when you are in one airlinr all through your international flight."

Cons: "Same as the above"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Hour plus late departing as attendants did not show up to work on time. No coffee brewed on 7:30 AM flight. Probably because of crews late arrival"

Pros: "short duration"
Cons: "So short that somehow I didn't get a cup of water..I know they started to serve it but maybe they missed our row, maybe turbulence ended service by then.. I don't know why but I was overheated and very thirsty."

Cons: "Although power was advertised and was present, it did not work."

Cons: "T"

Cons: "Seat and seatbelt to small"

Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"

Pros: "Boarding was relatively easy and quick."
Cons: "Boarding area/gate was slightly dirty."

Pros: "I appreciated that the captain, although it sounds as though he wasn't originally scheduled for this flight, flew us to Cleveland anyway since the originally scheduled one was delayed. The landing was incredibly smooth, especially given the circumstances/weather."

Pros: "First id like to say i got a cheaper rate on Kayak then i did on United Airlines website savings over 100 dollars. Id also like to say thank you for hooking me up with economy plus seats that include outlets to charge your devices. A+ in my book i even got an exit rox on my way home all to myself! Definitely will be using Kayak in the future."
Cons: "The United Airlines staff inside O'Hare. All but one were very rude to me for no reason. Maybe thats just a Chicago thing to have an attitude with everyone but im pretty sure it was just these 2 individuals."

Cons: "I had a flight from Los Angeles to Cleveland with a stop in Chicago on December 29, 2016; however, both flights were delayed. I am contacting customer care for compensation due to a severe delay for the departure and arrival for my flight from Chicago to Cleveland (Flight 786). I also wanted to report a very disappointing experience with the representatives at 1-800-864-8331. I was supposed to arrive at Cleveland, OH (CLE) on December 29, 2016 by 7:30 PM. However, it was closer to 11:20 PM when we finally arrived. The flight was delayed over an hour for departure when they announced the plane was not even ready and present at the gate. Due to this delay, we were not able to land on Cleveland, OH (CLE) because of snow on the runway. We circled Cleveland for roughly 40 minutes and then got redirected to the Detroit. We would've avoided the snow if the flight departed on time since the snow did not hit Cleveland until the delayed flight was airborne. We then landed in Detroit and spent another hour and a half in Detroit. At this time, I called the representatives at United and requested a refund. The representative completely understood my situation and said I would be refunded the full amount to my original payment method. She also assured me that I did not need a case number and that other representatives would be able to look up this information through my confirmation number. This was not the case when I contacted United again to see the progress on the refund. They said there were no annotations and that they could not provide a refund. They advised me that the previous representative had lied to me. While the flight experience caused me to miss the rehearsal dinner and bachelor party for a close friend I served with in the Army and almost caused me to miss the wedding, I feel very cheated and trashed for being lied to by your employees regarding my refund and its validity. This experience has left a very bad taste regarding United Airline's integrity and values."

Cons: "More than an hour late departure."

Pros: "5 zones with specific lines make so much sense! Worked well. The seats were some of the smallest I have ever had, so not impressed and since I am tall, a bit of a deal breaker. I am normally a delta fan, so won't be switching anytime soon. All else worked fine...a short somewhat turbulent flight so no water/drink service, which is understandable."
Cons: "Seat size and leg room!"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and accommodating, plane was cleanly and comfortable"
Cons: "Snack could use a little work"

Cons: "See above comments."

Cons: "THIS FLIGHT WAS VERY DUSTY AND DIRTY ALONG THE WINDOW SEATS. It looked like no one had dusted in a very long time."

Cons: "In an effort to maximize profit you give up comfort. I bet you could charge more if it were comfortable."

Pros: "Efficient cabin crew."
Cons: "Too many ads on the entertainment monitors that couldn't be turned off."

Pros: "Long day flying already. Many flights to CLE were delayed, but ours was cancelled. The staff was kind enough to get my mom a seat on another flight that day, which was good as she was out of medication after traveling two weeks. 3 of us had to fly standby. The staff said we would automatically be added to the next flight's standby list if we ddin't make it. That was bad information - it didn't happen."
Cons: "Disapointed with the service and lack of accommodation after our flight was cancelled."

Cons: "The flight was very hot and uncomfortable!"

Cons: "We were in Cleveland and our flight got cancelled. We confirmed a flight out of Canton. Drove the hour only to find that flight to be cancelled also. Drive from Canton to Chicago and arrived at about 2 in the morning. We had tried to change our flight to leave two days earlier. The fee for changing flights was more than the tickets were initially but when you cancel it its tough break for us."

Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours."

Pros: "I made it alive"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over six hours. No explanation was given as to why and the flight was supposed to arrive at 6:45 and we got in at 12:30. Poor service at the gate and then we got on the plane and sat on the Tarmac for an hour with no explanation again. The air wasn't on and not drinks or snacks were offered for our wait time. a disappointing way to end an otherwise great weekend away."

Cons: "Seated in the last row of plane and was continuously bumped by flight attendant as she delivered drinks."

Pros: "Delays handled with curtesy and information."

Cons: "My bag is lost from Chicago to Cleveland. 5 bags needed retagged in Chicago....4 of 5 made it to Cleveland."

Pros: "The crew were excellent. They made up for the hassle of changing terminals at the last minute."
Cons: "When all of the passengers and crew are at the listed gate well before boarding and the gate is changed to a different terminal it adds a lot of stress to the situation. To the crews credit they did not let it effect their professional attitude. I was highly impressed by the employees of the airline to keep things on time and positive. Overall that made the difference between being a bad experience and becoming one of the best flight experiences I have had in years. This flight crew should be considered an example of how to treat customers well."

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic...front to back??? WHY when opposite works so well!!"

Cons: "Boarded on time, but had to sit for 40 minutes waiting for de icing"

Pros: "Was never in Chicago."
Cons: "Was never in Chicago but my stuff was."

Cons: "I was informed today that one of my checked bags was picked up by another customer who eventually realized it was not her bag. She brought it back to the airport and refused to turn over the bag until the airport compensated her. (How this happened I have no idea because I stood right by the entrance of the baggage claim and never saw the bag come out). The customer refused to return the bag until the police became involved at which point she agreed to write a note confirmed she did not steal anything. The bag then needs to be sent to me in 2 days and I'll have to verify myself that indeed nothing was taken from the bag. I'm very concerned how this individual came to be in possession of my bag considering, again, I stood right at the entrance of the baggage claim conveyor belt from the time it started to when it ended. As a result, this experience really made me feel frustrated and violated."

Pros: "The captain, crew and gate personnel were very friendly and helpful, despite what I think had been a long day for all of them too. I appreciated their efforts to provide drinks for everyone despite the crazy short flight."
Cons: "I was rather annoyed that the inflight video monitors played commercials for the entirety of the flight (almost no one elected to pay $8 for TV on what was supposed to be about a one hour trip). The cabin was obnoxiously bright as a result, and it was difficult to avoid being distracted and irritated by the flickering. United should have those screens turned off unless users pay for them-- it would save valuable energy too, wouldn't it? I was also frustrated that we were delayed a number of times because of mechanical difficulties, but I'm grateful that we took off knowing everything worked. Between the late in-bound crew and the mehanical hold ups, we could have all taken the bus and arrived sooner."

Pros: "The quick time"
Cons: "The plane was too small I was claosterphoic and there was a guy coughing on me the entire flight."

Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay in returning to Cleveland. We tried to get on an earlier flight, but couldn't since we had checked our luggage for the later flight. I don't know why we weren't given the option of the earlier flight when we made our reservation to avoid the long layover. THere would have been enough time to make the connection. Not only was there no consideration of giving us compensation for food, but there was only a minimal snack and a beverage on the way to Cleveland. The airline told us the delay had to be at least 4 hours to get a coupon for food. Well, it was 6 hours before we arrived at our destination.
