Top 3 airlines serving Columbia Metropolitan to Connecticut
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "crew was ok. entertainment ok"
Cons: "they always give us seats way back in the plane."
Pros: "I appreciate the choice of snacks."
Cons: "The coffee served on the flight was lukewarm."
Pros: "Nothing. They lost the plane so we couldn’t even fly out"
Cons: "Finding the plane"
Cons: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Delta’s boarding process is based on how much you paid for ticket/loyalty. It would be better for everyone if seating was done in a way that window people were seated first, then aisle."
Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."
Pros: "Diverted for unclear reasons. Stuck in TSY with hotel voucher to an overbooked hotel; trying to find out of pocket accommodations after long day of no food at MIDNIGHT was a real downer! I’ll let ya know if I make it home TODAY!!!"
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "Loved the pilot telling us a little about the flight crew and their piloting experience(Air Force) , and how he kept us abreast of flight status/timing , as well as our location at various points along the route. The crew was very very nice!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The plane was not full, so the stewardess put my wife and I by the exit seats. I am a tall guy and really appreciated it!"
Cons: "Both connecting flights were very tight time wise, and the gates were at opposite ends of the terminal. Couldn’t delta flights be closer together?"
Cons: "There was barely any room on my seat and in front. It was the worst flight experience I’ve ever had, and I’ve flown on a fair bit of airlines from 3rd world countries."
Cons: "Very slow plane turnover."
Cons: "Being on time"
Pros: "It is only a 40 minute flight how bad can it be. No in flight entertainment or beverage service, there never is, no time. Understandable"
Cons: "As with any flight since they started squeezing seats tighter, I am over 6 foot so there is no such thing as being comfortable!"
Pros: "The flight was only half full so boarding was very quick."
Cons: "The seats were hard and there was no entertainment system."
Cons: "Lost my both bags in transit. Also, did not get wheelchair services at Paris and had to walk everywhere with bad legs. Not good."
Pros: "From the gate agent to flight attendants the flight was great"
Cons: "The sky lounge to few bathrooms"
Pros: "The flight was fine. I don’t do 5 stars ever since they started pushing the limits on seating. I also have a problem with the wide swing in prices for the same flight but know that is marketing."
Cons: "Seating is too crowded for anyone to be truly comfortable"
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "In flight movie in back of head rest. The kids thought I was the bomb when I booked this flight."
Cons: "The bathroom was smaller than my seat!"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane didnt have any extras and the headrest didnt have the adjustable flaps."
Cons: "Lack of charging outlet and no headrest screen for entertainment."
Pros: "every person who was not a delta employee, those people were kind and helpful."
Cons: "The gate agent was the opposite of professional. You might as well get a cardboard cutout. The gate agent was unable or unwilling to explain when and how I would get my seat assignment and with what group I should board with. A passenger helped me. I am a frequent flyer, primarily AA, I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Did not appreciate Aeromexico/Delta changing my flight times after I booked, giving me a more than 7 hour layover."
Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."
Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."
Pros: "First time with AmExp Delta so no baggage fee, zone 1 boarding. seats are fine, newer aircraft, snacks were good and entertainment was good and easy to use. Staff and attendants were friendly p. All good"
Cons: "As far as flying goes today no complaints. As compared to 30 years ago I could do a book but nothing to do with Delta"
Pros: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Cons: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "Flight attendants were super."
Cons: "Delta is just another cattle car"
Cons: "I had to buy a ticket on Southwest to get where I needed to go. So a wasted trip, wasted time and Southwest came through immediately after I had told them the situation. I'll be using them much more now."
Pros: "Loved the safety presentation made by the live stewardess!!"
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and the timing of the flight was very good."
Cons: "Nothing to do with personnel but my seat was changed from when I booked. I wound up in the last row at the very back versus what I had booked. I think they changed the type of plane."
Pros: "Great service very courteous crew. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Pros: "They expedited me in line in Havana because I was on the 1:35 flight to New York and were nothing but friendly about it."
Pros: "On time. Funny pilot"
Cons: "No food or beverage service"
Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"
Pros: "Left on time....arrived on time. Boarding was as good as it ever gets. Anytime you can get your carry on in the overhead bin it is a great flight."
Cons: "It wasn't easy to find what gate I had to go to. I didn't see any boards in the check in area. It was only after TSA check that I found a staff member who gave me the information. After that all went okay. The problem might have been my own....it is a big airport."
Pros: "Crew was quick and nice."
Cons: "Not many options for food."
Pros: "This time the tea was nice and hot!"
Pros: "Great crew. Good space on my exit row seat"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline, though it's considered a "premium" seat. No power either. Ticketing process was crazy - I was not able to get a seat assignment until 5 minutes before boarding. Why? And there was no explanation of the situation. I had to ask, multiple times, what was going on,before I was finally told that I was going to get on, but they just didn't know where. This could be handled much more clearly!"
Cons: "Everything!! I wanna be compensated for this nonsense I went through!!"
Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Poor food"
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Pros: "Delta gave out free snacks and then I got a flight for the next day."
Cons: "After being delayed over 5 hours and then being on the airplane the flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was wonderful, she worked so hard the whole flight and was so pleasant. I am sorry I don’t know her name, but she’s beautiful!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Great flight"
Pros: "We landed Friendly crew"
Cons: "Tray table broken Entire flight too cramped. Grateful I didn’t have the last seat in the back across from the lav. can you squ3eze any more seats into that aircraft?!"

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "No air traffic"
Pros: "The plane did not crash."
Cons: "Pilot to passenger communication. On time departure. Cleanliness and comfort of plane. Bigger plane to accommodate roll aboards. Flight attendant’s attitude. Ticket price, but there’s no competition on the route."
Pros: "Everything was awesome. No wait, fast boarding, nice crew!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. TSA in Tulsa can always speed up or open more lanes!"
Cons: "Communication among crew members was terrible. We had to ride a crowded shuttle over to the plane only to be told we could not get off because the crew was running late. The crew shows up and begins their pre-flight preparations, but we then could not get off the shuttle because of broken air system"
Pros: "Pilot and crew were great even though we had lots of delays due to weather"
Cons: "Gate agents were a little rude to some customers"
Pros: "The crew was pretty nice. The seats were actually comfortable."
Cons: "I don't know; it's economy in a plane. It is what it is."
Cons: "Our already delayed 1 am flight was cancelled a little before midnight. It was rescheduled to 8am. It was a big headache trying to get a hotel, meal vouchers. Then, there were no shuttles to the hotel available so has to wait in line again for taxi vouchers."
Cons: "I’m never ever in my life flying with American Airlines Again. I want my money back honestly. I’ve had 4 flights with AA. 2 to get to Columbia and 2 to get back to Washington. 3-4 HAD ISSUES OR WAS WAY LATE. Unexceptional"
Pros: "The TVs and free movies!"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight!"
Pros: "Newer plane. Ceiling light. Pilot’s skills!"
Pros: "Lunch was GREAT- usually fly Delta but this was comparable."
Cons: "WiFi, ESPECIALLY when you pay for a first class ticket, should be free. Further, the instructions for connecting to paid WiFi are NOT printed clearly anywhere. I had to go to the internet while on the ground. There are many movie and TV show options for free on your own device, however."
Pros: "While the incoming flight arrived late causing us to board late, the flight still landed almost 2o minutes early. The staff was very friendly as well."
Cons: "Delayed due to no available gate attendant. Limited ground crew."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Late flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours."
Cons: "TSA Safety Point officer was not on point..She Made me go through the checkpoint again just because I passed a zone where she was sitting at and not standing there to warn or stop people from passing through. This happen at the End and D gate terminals by Starbucks. I was very inconvenienced."
Pros: "Same as above. Very pleased"
Cons: "Pilot was going so fast never told us why we kept descending and going back up and people were throwing up and they wouldn’t give soda to settle stomachs"
Cons: "No charging outlets on seat ( this something pretty standard on most planes now). The flight was delayed because of the plane had a problem with the tire. The passenger next to me had a broken tray with tape around it. The bathroom had a broken sink."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Great selection for entertainment. Flight arrived to my destination early."
Pros: "It makes such a difference when the attendant is happy and clearly enjoying her work and trying to make a difference. A fantastic boost after a long flight"
Pros: "It was a red eye and I made it back safely, and a couple of minutes before schedule. There was no food or snacks, barely had enough water to pass out. Otherwise it was an ok flight."
Cons: "No snacks or food, barely enough water on the flight."
Pros: "Plane was nice, seemed fairly new. There were two outlets for my row installed on the supports of the row of seats in front of us. Looked like it was made for plugs from a number of countries. Pretty nice feature. Headrests has an adjustable pillow that you could use to cradle your head for sleep. Didn’t use but seemed interesting."
Cons: "Seats too narrow. There weren’t especially narrow. In fact, I’m sure I’ve sat in narrower ones. This is just a feature of every economy seat I suppose, but it’s still a negative. O"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Seat space is bad. Food is all for a fee."
Cons: "Delay due to mechanical glitch which should have been checked before boarding"
Cons: "Ground crew was inadequate and unorganized. Ground crew caused a late flight to be even later. Plane was overbooked and the ground crew was more interested in filling the flight than accommodating Advantage Member seating."
Pros: "Premium space"
Cons: "Sporadic communication from flight deck on the nature of 2-hour flight delay. Initially we understood that dispatch was the issue because of fuel for the flight. Next, it was a weather delay followed by an apparent ground stop."
Pros: "Relatively smooth flight"
Cons: "Seats are built for very small people. My knees were pressed into some hard surfaces for the entire 3+ hour flight. Made it a little painful to walk when we landed. The movie screens (not headrest systems) were all up overhead so you get a neck cramp watching anything. The headrest behind me pressed my shoulders forward and the extendable part would not stay up. The window stopped at about my shoulder so to look out I had to crouch down. AA better stop squeezing us for profits and start delivering a quality service or we'll all find some other airline that puts passengers first."
Pros: "mango juice and soft blankets"
Cons: "too much time between meals"
Pros: "Staff polite and helpful. No complaints/ Slept all the way"
Pros: "The seats were more comfortable. You"
Cons: "The middle seat and the guy in front of me who decided to recline!!!"
Pros: "Bottom tier entertainment provided"
Cons: "Advertised wifi not functional. Limited TV access (1 8" tv for every 12-16 seats) poor programming random NBC clips and partial episodes) and terrible movie. No selection/plane tracker"
Cons: "Haven't taken it yet!"
Pros: "I enjoyed that the ride was only 35 minutes. The crew was helpful and professional. Quick and smooth trip and came in on time. Can't really ask for too much more than that."
Cons: "The middle seat was a little cramped but I can't really complain since I lucked out with window seats the entire trip and only had to sit in the middle seat for the shortest plane ride on my trip."
Cons: "It was an hour + late. A trip I took from Washington two weeks before was late in both directions."
Cons: "Gate personnel was not as accommodating. Didn't seem like they wanted to help."
Pros: "The plane was new and the leg room was worth the extra $20."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment and the seat did not recline. I guess there are pros and cons in the exit row. I also had no choice but to buy the more expensive seat since all others were taken at check-in."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, efficient, and professional. Plane was clean and the seats seemed roomier too. Pilot was excellent. He made up considerable time once we were in the air."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, on time leaving, early arrival, smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Didn't use entertainment."
Pros: "Like I said before nice early boarding."
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "The crew seemed nice, and the seats themselves were basically comfortable. The option to check baggage at the gate was good, since it was a nearly full flight."
Cons: "The seating was completely cramped. Airlines need to decrease rows in order to provide actual legroom. The boarding process didn't seem very logical in terms of rows and seats. I don't believe there was any food, but that may be because it was a red-eye. The pilot thought Springfield was in CT, which was alarming to me."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Quick, efficient flight"
Cons: "How about a sip of water atleast"
Pros: "Flight is a quick and easy one."
Cons: "It truly bothers me that during pre-board, United says, "if you have a disability you can board now." Who would want to be the person moving forward to board? Southwest says something to the affect of "if you have a pre-board and need a little extra time." Maybe they could change their verbiage to sound a bit more like we're in the 21st century."
Pros: "Flight was on time. This shouldn't have to be a "positive" aspect of the trip but unfortunately was the only flight during my trip that was on time."
Cons: "i will not arrive at my destination until 4:03 AM. yuck."
Pros: "Great flight attendant made short safety demonstration very entertaining."
Cons: "Good? What food?"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Has crumbs of food all over the floor and I had to sweep off my seat before I sat down. There was trash beside my seat The attendants were loud and not professional with how they talked like they were from the hood. They kept the lights on making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "I liked the Dutch sweet breakfast waffle very much."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, but touchdown was kind of brutal"
Cons: "Took a long time to get support when gate changed. Could not walk at the time due to skiing accident."
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived early."
Cons: "Finally surrendered to the delays after 5 hours waiting (enough to drive to Hartford and back) and took an Uber home."
Pros: "Was fine"
Pros: "Although there were no personal screens, I appreciate the fact that entertainment was available on the app."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "i had to pay $25.00 for my one bag on my flight home but didn't have to pay from indy to washington"
Pros: "Good flight."
Pros: "The professionalism of the airline stewardess says that's what I like the most"
Cons: "I really can't say that I truly would call something I didn't like"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight which I missed because of a giant delay on the first leg of my journey"
Pros: "On time flight. Great service from United crew."
Pros: "crew ok"
Cons: "two delays caused anguish no info on connecting flight on board plane couldn't access entertainment without additional software arrived ewr late would almost ;miss boarding after running from gate 82 to 114 to find the flight was late," waiting for a plane." could not get accurate departure info. (people were waiting to pick us up) arrived at bdl just before midnight two bad flights not good at all"
Pros: "New plane. I like the new seats with the slot that can hold my iPad cover so I could watch a movie. The services was great."
Pros: "Quick flight time."
Cons: "The crew seemed so much less friendly on this flight, however they got the job done. I was scolded for having a carry on with me, although I did notice there was still a portion of overhead space that was unused. Also, no in-flight wifi service like the last flight was available it seemed. That was a bummer"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour due to maintenance issue which could have been avoided."
Pros: "Staff were nice."
Cons: "They didn't even provide nuts!! No snacks at all after the long trip. There was a one hr delay at departure from NEWARK. And the seats were VERY UNCOMFORTABLE!!"
Pros: "Staff was professional. Flight was on time"
Cons: "Small plane, no TV for a long plane ride"
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and couldn't sleep"
Pros: "Free entertainment on your own devices"
Cons: "We left late, so even though I had rushed to catch my connection, we still sat in the plane for half an hour. Is it possible to build in more time between connecting flights? Which luckily was also late. Too bad people now have to pay for food."
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with little communication or reassurance. When I had to rebook my connection, the counter was woefully understaffed and they were not equipped with new enough computers to quickly address my problem."
Pros: "Crew on the plane was helpful and nice."
Cons: "Crew boarding the plane was bossy and a bit rude. I also think it's very inappropriate that United boards it's pre board group by saying, "anyone with disabilities can board now" The term pre board was created so you wouldn't have to publicly announce that someone was disabled."
Cons: "Same as above, including late flight"
Pros: "Delays in both flights"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Had to wait to takeoff for approx 15 minutes due to maintenance preparing paperwork"

Pros: "easy transfer"
Cons: "had to transfer"
Cons: "Dulles International Airport on a beautiful June 3, 2016. Flight was from Dulles to Hartford and due to depart at 12:30 pm. 12:30 pm - Notified flight delayed an hour or so because they didn't have a flight attendant for the flight. 2:00 pm - Notified flight delayed because Flight Attendant was found but on way. 4:00 pm - Notified the Flight attendant would not be able to make it, but they were looking for another one. 6:00 pm - Notified a Flight Attendant was found and was on a plane that was inbound and would be landing any minute. Notified plane with Flight Attendant arrived at gate and they would be there any minute and we could begin boarding. 6:45 pm - Flight was CANCELLED!!!!! I could go on about how I was rebooked on an 11:00 pm flight on American Airlines out of Reagan, my checked bag was not returned to me and I was told it was on another plane United plane that would beat me to Hartford, they shuttled me to Reagan. I got to Hartford and my bag was not there......SURPRISE!! This was ridiculous and thank god I was traveling alone and had time. I felt bad for the families with small children who had to suffer through this stupidity."
Pros: "I didn't like anything ppl were rude."
Cons: "I didn't like that both my flight were delayed. One was"
Pros: "The flight crew were nice"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. We were not able to choose a snack, I had no knowledge what was inside the snack package, did not like. Unfortunately, our flight was delay a few times due to storm at Houston, we experience lots of turbulence while flying, no fault of the pilot. I think you should install TV's to help passengers relief some flying stress."
Pros: "Blanket for lap"
Cons: "No service /selections. Paid for movie and fat child continually shut off TV w his fat arm on my armrest Boarding is very poor no assists as flight attendants virtually unattentive LAX dirty disgusting and no shops seating or restaurants No mvmt to allow stiff swollen legs all cramped in tiny seats. I pay bag fees while others get free checked bags at the gates. Many people are able to carry huge extra backpacks w no enforcement from staff Slows the whole trip down"
Cons: "United's customer service (in the airport) is terrible."
Pros: "Airplane was clean. The attendant was warm and friendly, made eye contact and seemed concerned about everyone's comfort."
Cons: "Never took second flight it was canceled. I was very upset"
Pros: "The flight crew were professional and well trained"
Cons: "The aircraft was very cramped and very uncomfortable even for such a short fligh"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight into Hartford. I got stuck in Houston then they sent me to Boston. My car was at Bradley international on Boston so I had to wait a few hours when I landed at Logan before a rental car became available, which cost me an extra 200 dollars. I rented the car and drove to Hartford (2 hours) to drop the rental off and get my car. Needless to say I was exhausted for work on Tuesday after getting home at 3am and traveling all day. My original flight from Houston to Hartford was suppose to land at 8pm at Bradley airport. I had several people I was on the trip with who also flew into Hartford the same day with similar arrival times at bradley who were on different airlines. They either had small delays or no delays at all. Extremely inconvenient the trip home was. Although I am all for safety first I am not sure why other airlines still made the trip or simply delayed the flights. Doesn't make much sense since I usually fly United and always consider them the benchmark of air travel. Thanks. Torry Gajda"
Pros: "Very comfortable newer plane!"
Cons: "I don't really want to give entertainment a 1 star, it really should be N/A No snacks, pretzels, peanuts, or cookies with my drink, that was disappointing!"
