Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very good check in and customs, etc at both airports especially RDU."
Cons: "Only fair to good in flight service."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "Crews were great."
Cons: "Flight delays coming and going. Happens a lot with Delta."
Pros: "The check-in agent was very nice and patient"
Cons: "Our flight kept on getting delays, we were seated separated, a kid was hitting my seat during the whole flight even after skiing the mother to stop her child, not sure what is the solution there but I would suggest that in your announcements in the beginning you could mention a rule of respect to others like in the movies a little subtle regulation about other passengers space respect."
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."
Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."
Pros: "All the staff and flight crew we're really great and thoughtful. Helpful with finding overhead compartments on a full flight."
Cons: "Seats could be bigger, with more leg room. But we know that's not gonna happen."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. The woman who checked in my dog and my bag was really nice too. On time, efficient, and clean."
Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."
Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Pros: "The air staff were very nice and attentive. Menu choices were varied and reasonably priced."
Cons: "The microphones didn't work well and hearing the staff was difficult. I saw several load before their zone was called with nothing said to them. When I paid to upgrade zones that is very annoying. Please quit shrinking the passenger seat size."
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service in First Class. Had the side with only one seat -- nice to have no neighbors."
Cons: "Flight crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed just as we were about to board at 5:30. There was a mechanical problem and we were changed to another plane and another gate, which was supposed to take off at 6:30. It was boarded and ready to go around 7:00. Then....we taxied down the runway only to stop because of a situation on THIS plane (a light that did not go off). It was fixed pretty quickly and meanwhile a rep. from Delta boarded the plane, apologizing for our inconvenience and handed out Jolly Ranchers. REALLY? After that, she and the flight attendants did give us a free drink/headset coupon. That would have been nice but it expires Dec. 2017 and the flight attendant stopped serving drinks about half way down the aisle because the flight was so short. The coupon will be of no use to me. I finally got to Raleigh about 9:30...I booked the flight so I wouldn't have to drive at night.. Sigh....Delta used to be my favorite airline."
Pros: "I would like more detail about traveling companions displayed."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Whereas our flight out from Raleigh to JFK where everything that could possibly go wrong did(late crew, boarding computer problem, mechanical issues with the plane, gate problems, missed connection) this last leg of our trip back was flawless. Everything was on time, and the crew was friendly and attentive. We had exit row seats so the leg room for this 90 minute flight was great compared to our first part (London-Atlanta)"
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."
Cons: "We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "The flight was quick, safe, and the crew was courteous and attentive."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Cons: "The delay on the runway"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and boarding was easy."
Cons: "didn't provide snacks. They took a long time to retrieve the luggage that was checked at the gate."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, half full flight was nice to have room"
Pros: "USB and AC power supplied in-seat is incredibly nice feature."
Cons: "1 of the 3 bags we checked was forgotten at JFK airport. Since we had a 5 hour layover, Delta had ample time to get the bag on the plane."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small"
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
Pros: "attentive on the plane"
Cons: "the checking in took very long not enough staff for the amount of people."
Pros: "Nothing stood out as being particularly good."
Cons: "A 6-hour international flight should provide food and entertainment. I flew Toronto to Port of Spain. No free food (not even pretzels), no inflight entertainment system, cramped seats with poor legroom, grumpy flight attendants, an hour delayed due to disorganized boarding process."
Cons: "Didn't take this flight because a fire broke out in the terminal. I got rebooked to almost 24 hours later and a friend I was flying with got rebooked 36 hours later. Customer service at the airport was not willing to help us and we could not connect to customer service on the phone."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine but AC could splurge for a gate rather than bussing our to the tarmac"
Cons: "The enertainment system was down for over half the passengers and only returned to spotty functionality two thirds of the way through the flight. I gather after some other passengers disconnected. Clearly the system didn’t have enough bandwidth to support all 350 passengers. and why no wifi?"
Cons: "The flight was late more then 2 hours. I missed connection flight!"
Cons: "I didn’t like anything about this flight, except that we arrived safely. I had the last seat, next to the toilet, and that container or whatever it is, was dirty. Every time someone flushed, I was bathed in the smell of urine. It was raining in Toronto; consequently, my checked bag was wet through. I’m glad I was coming home rather than arriving at a vacation destination, where all my stuff would’ve been wet. I’d like to see some effort put into keeping my bag dry. Also, the passengers had to slog through the rain to get on the plane!"
Pros: "The only problem was that I could not check in till morning 4 hours before my flight. Everything else was great"
Cons: "Garbage in see pocket and broken recline on seat 36k"
Cons: "The flight from Phoenix to Vancouver was good except for the poor wifi when we were connected to the air canada wifi. Since there is no mini TVs on the back of the seats, you have to connect to their wifi to access shows and movies from your own device which is fine if it works. Tried to watch a movie which had huge problems connecting and the loading signal was on for a large amount of time. Once it had connected to the movie, it had restarted to the beginning about 25 times during watching it. Very disappointing and made it very unenjoyable. Also, right after we boarded, the pilot went on the intercom to tell us the ground crew had a gas spill and had to take extra time to clean it up which led us to sit on the plane for an extra 45 minutes and that led us to miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Spacious aircraft, great flight attendants very clean bathrooms, lots of snacks and foods"
Cons: "t took the crew 3 hrs on the tarmac to figure out the plane was unsafe to fly!"
Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "We paid extra for bulkhead seats at the front of economy. One of the stewards working in business class repeatedly came to get something out if the compartment over my head. The noise woke me up over and over. I finally asked him what he was getting and he told me it was his lunch! Irritating."
Pros: "Crew we're very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow and back support non-existent."
Cons: "Checked carry on from Montreal to RDU. Bag was never entered in the system (customer service at Toronto stop could not find record for the claim tag we were given), which caused a problem with customs. Bag did arrive with rest of luggage at destination, however."
Pros: "We left on time and boarding was efficient"
Cons: "As we have learned, airlines, like banks, have figured out how to make more money (even though fuel prices have dropped) fees, fees and more fees and less, less, less services... o food, have to buy and they run out fast... The flight attendants are not as friendly (also depends on the individual) in general..."
Pros: "From Vancouver to Los Angeles, nice smiling crew on the ground and in the air. Nice spacious legroom, not squeezed in tight like other planes, woohoo :). Great free movie selection -- don't forget your earphones or you'll have to credit card one on the plane (the ones for iphone 7 don't work, so get normal plug-in earphones). Smooth flight."
Cons: "Most crowded flight I'VE EVER experienced. Narrow seats and NO legroom! Servicing only complimentary room temp. Water a 3hr trip. Retired now but was flying weekly during my 30 years plus career I'm shocked at the very basic services. Soon you will probably consider and fee for toilet use!"
Pros: "These were all LH code shares with Air Canada. Checkin and boarding at CDG 2A is the best you can do there. Only a short walk from checkin thru immigration and security to the gate. Also Air Canada checked my bag to HNL. There were US immigration and customs, small scale and quick, in Vancouver but no requirement for baggage inspection unlike awful LAX. For future trips between HNL and Europe, I am flying Air Canada via Canada."
Cons: "White wine was room temp."
Pros: "Help provided by the whole staff"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."
Pros: "As we approached Raleigh ~3:15am, over 4.5 hours late, the pilot apologized for the delay, which was thoughtful of him. And we arrived in one piece, so that was good too."
Cons: "While waiting for the flight, I whined on FB about our probable delay, and a friend responded with "I'm guessing that you're crammed at the end of that terminal hallway with about 10 other gates of people with no airplanes, no information, and 2 AC employees." Spot on. Apparently such delays, understaffed gates, and failures to communicate with passengers are par for the course. Friend even predicted the free bagels AC would eventually offer at the restaurant that closed 3 hours before our flight finally left. He didn't predict the multiple announcements about assorted other flights not having functional restrooms so please pee before boarding."
Cons: "We're Not Satisfied With Our Seat From SFO TO YVR"
Cons: "Why not board front to rear. It would save mega aisle clog during boarding!"
Pros: "Plane was the new Air Canada 787, so it was excellent. Comfortable business seats. Nice sleep"
Cons: "The leg room under the seats is impeded by the seat support structure. This is not such a problem on other planes."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and nice, plane was new and in a very good condition. Flight was not fully booked so we could move around and take even 4 seats to lay down and fly comfortably."
Cons: "Boarding was over an hour later than it supposed to be. Toronto always has some " surprises" for passengers. Food could be better."
Cons: "Ground staff allowed drunbk woman to board, air crew didn't want to take her.. eventually she had to be thrown off before takeoff and that delayed us another hour."
Pros: "the free movies. Plenty of offers of water to drink."
Cons: "The seats were so tight you literally felt like a sardine. These seats were by far the smallest I have had for an international flight. The breakfast wrap was not good."
Cons: "Flight was late. The status screens in the Toronto airport depicted incorrect information."
Pros: "Flight attendant did his best to make light of a tough situation."
Cons: "The flight was gradually postponed more and more, with very little communication on the ground. What communication we did get was spotty, and not delivered in a pleasant manner."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "LaGuardia construction!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "the flight attendant was VERY friendly and helpful. we had her on another flight as well and were very impressed."
Cons: "the flight was delayed, and there was so much confusion as to the departure gate at the airport. it kept switching and airline reps were not helpful or friendly on the matter. it was a huge mess"
Pros: "We boarded the flight on time but of course we were still 30 minutes delayed taking off"
Cons: "The seats were tight. There was no entertainment system. They ran out of iPods before they got out of the premium seat area. Because of light turbulence the drink service was interrupted and never repeated in a seven hour flight."
Pros: "E mail confirmation , on time!"
Cons: "Food , not consumable. Limited water for a such a long flight. Poor choices for the entertainment. Crew semifreindly.washrooms are not maintained during the flight."
Cons: "Every air Canada flight I had on this trip had horrible turbulence and rough landings. The turbulence may or may not be the pilot's fault, but the landings are probably the pilot's fault."
Pros: "Landed alive in vancouver"
Cons: "Second time in two months that they delayed my flight by at least 3 hours."
Cons: "Delayed for no good reason. Flights were back to back way too closely so there was no time for delays"
Pros: "I liked that it all went very smooth."
Cons: "i would want the meal to include fruit and salad, something fresh."
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly two hours. Gate signs were never updated. 7 gate attendants spent 1.5 hrs standing at the gate talking laughing and joking amoungst themselves. They appeared annoyed when anyone asked for an update. They finally announced they were waiting for a wheelchair to unload a passenger from the previous flight. They announced they were ready to board zone 1 and 2 and then did nothing for another 25 minutes. Funny when we finally boarded nobody ever saw a wheelchair go on or off the plane. Understand that flights are delayed but no updates or explanations and a gate crew that seemed annoyed that the passengers were disrupting their social time was unacceptable."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. At some point we boarded the plane then asked to disembark it as we were still not ready for take off. They told us there were some weather issues in Toronto ... I looked at 3 different weather channels who said that the weather was mostly clear in Toronto with a few scattered showers."
Cons: "Very very bad customer service. I was flying to Rome from NYC on Friday night and my flight was cancelled. I was just notified by a text saying that there was a change in my flight. After calling customer service, I was forced to take the afternoon flight on Friday as I had to be in Rome for a wedding on Saturday. Even if I was rushed to the airport (my call with the customer service took place at 12.00 and the flight was after 2.30 hours...) and cancelled all my appointments and had to take special permission to leave from work, I was never offered any upgrades or refunds while at the same time the attitude of the rep was take the change or leave it. At the airport, I called again the customer service to understand better the cancellation policy based on their website and their response was to apply on the website and maybe I would get a little bit of money and they don't offer upgrades for these kind of situations. They indicated that it is up to gate manager to decide for upgrades, which when I tried this approach I was notified that the customer service should have flag me appropriately....I don't really care about the refund or the upgrade as at the end I was able to reach my destination on time; however, it was extremely disappointing to see a whole organization that does not take into consideration their customers time and ignore any descent customer service to them. Simply, never again."
Pros: "All flying may have weather issues. At almost 1 am there was a wonderful ticket agent that was in charge of all of the rescheduled flights in the "basement" area of the Toronto airport. Thanks to her for her pleasant attitude."
Cons: "Lack of communication: 1. There were gate changes that just showed up on the board with no verbal announcement. 2. There were a large number of rescheduled flights on July 1, 2016. We were all "herded" into a small, hot area. It seems like this time of day has a number of late flights that don't seem to have a good plan. 3. We landed in Greensboro and the pilot walked in to tell us after the fact. Come on, an announcement before the actual landing would have been good communication."
Pros: "great new plane loved the entertainment, usb chargers, new window shade technology. On time flight"
Pros: "The crews were okay, they tried."
Cons: "First, the plane was a 767, rode a plane of that size cross the Pacific was extremely uncomfortable. We sat inside the plane for over 2 hours because of some unknown luggage/passenger problem before taking off! I found there were no entertainment. That was the first time I flew oversea without entertainment (TV). The tightness of the seating and boredom made the trip extremely long and uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "My Mon couldn't fly because I never have noticed that she needed a Canadian Visa. She came from Mexico with her American visa and the experience buying a ticket with this airline was a nightmare."
Pros: "The food was very good and they serve drinks and water many times. The crew members were very efficient."
Pros: "Originally this flight was scheduled to be an 1hr and 17minute flight. It only took 55 minutes from gate to gate. Flight attendant was really friendly, overall a very great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft that was servicing this route was tiny and at times I found it difficult to stand up properly without hitting my head. There was a little chop upon takeoff but besides that everything went smoothly."
Pros: "I liked the choice of movies."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants, Pasquale, was very brusque."
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and attentive, service was great."
Cons: "I was seated in the last row, by lavatory door. The plane smelled bad and I could hear a distressed dog barking below. Vinyl seats left my shirt sweaty."
Pros: "Better than I expected, given the bad publicity of late"
Cons: "My aisle seat has miniscule foot room"
Pros: "I was excited to hear about the private screening"
Cons: "The connection was horrible and the movie stopped every couple of minutes"
Cons: "This flight didn't happen. It was cancelled for "weather" hours before we were even to board. Because the cancellation was due to weather, the airline wasn't responsible for picking up the hotel to get on the first flight the next morning. When I finally got home, my bag wasn't even on the flight with me."
Pros: "I was returning from an international flight, and had carried my smallish rollerboard +1 personal bag all through (including outbound) with no problems. Just on the last leg, IAD to RDU, the gate agent forced me to check the bag, even though the flight was not full, and the bag could easily fit in the overhead bin. I was in Group 3."
Cons: "Forced to gate check rollerboard for no reason."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Cons: "Crew, timing"
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed almost 3 hours after a 5 hour layover."
Pros: "I ctually no complain but the wifi not free"
Pros: "Crew are nice and friendly"
Pros: "We've arrived just on time!! really liked the service"
Pros: "Captain was very friendly and took ownership of delay for United"
Cons: "Delays at newark due to President in area. Would rather of just been told of delay hours prior so I could have spent the extra time with my family. Apparently the delay was known about"
Pros: "Overall geeat"
Cons: "Snacks suck I would appreciate one snack instead of a mix of 1 or 2 treats in a bag of nonsense. Peanuts, cookies, pretzels. Choose 1. never got wifi going on either flights. After struggling through downloading the unnecessary apps I was never able to connect, even with assistance from a flight attendant"
Cons: "Checking my bag was lousy...lax attention from limited staff and poor attitude of one ticket agent. DC airport was kind of a mess. TSA was disorganized, technology not working, calls for help from TSA officials went unanswered. It seemed strange to me that the airport of our nation's capitol would be so unprofessional. I felt like I kept encountering very unhappy and not so customer-focused staff. Flight itself was fine."
Pros: "On time, happy and efficient crew."
Cons: "No food, but beverages offered, understandable due to the quick flight."
Pros: "I was impressed with the fact that our crew initiated an alternate route so we could actually get to RDU when things had been pretty dicey. Excellent flying and landing under difficult circumstances."
Pros: "The seating is cramped."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "The personal tv"
Cons: "Having to pay an extra fee just to watch whatever I wanted"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Very small seats, no leg room."
Cons: "The gentleman beside me had 2 children with him but only purchased 2 seats. He and his children were in my lap and kicking me the entire time. It was a full flight so I couldn't change seats. I paid $330 for a FULL seat to myself, not so I could share the space with the people beside me because United allowed them to purchase 2 seats for 3 people. As a full-paying customer I shouldn't be the one to suffer because of it."
Cons: "We were boarded on the aircraft. A 737 800 that was booked full. No ac, no pilots, and the weather was fine. It was the worst flight I've ever been on. If you don't know when the pilots are going to arrive, don't board the flight and make everyone sit in a hot plane without even updating the passengers on the eta or departure."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this experience. Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline. He missed his flight. No one helped him."
Cons: "Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline to inform about language barrier. Gate changed. No one helped him.He missed his flight. was missed inform how he could be accommodate."
Pros: "Good and frequent updates on delays and changes."
Cons: "No reasons for delays."
Pros: "boarding was efficient and fast; easy check in"
Cons: "oversold flight with 16+ standbys multiple flight delays with vague or no explanations"
Pros: "Service at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Comfort= no leg room, people pack like sardines Food+ have to purchase you own food. Entertainment= have to purchase Wi-Fi to get entertainment Overall after flight for almost 15 hrs. I was hoping to get some comfort for this flight."
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after a 3 hour delay. The next flight out was from a different airport, 14 hours later and with another connection. I would not have arrived home for another 28 hours. I decided to rent a car and drive the 4.5 hours home instead. Processing the refund has been nearly impossible."
Cons: "The layover/ delay was bad and inconvenient."
Cons: "Once again just like the first United flight the AC was so cold. They did not offer blankets and my son was so cold I had to unpack tshirts to wrap him. Will not fly this airline again. This has happened twice now."
Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."
Pros: "Everything Was good crew courteous"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."
Pros: "Nothing. Both airlines refused to accept responsibility."
Cons: "Security was down to 4 officers after 8 pm, which is normal practice. We where in line for 2 hrs with TSA. Neither airline made any attempt to assist getting us to the gate faster to make our flight on time. We received no assistance from United or Lufthansa airlines and had to sleep in the airport overnight."
Pros: "The crew for this flight was amazing! Very helpful and informative. Friendly is an understatement. Safety was a priority especially when we went through a little turbulence. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "flew delta on way down to liberia and they did not charge for any entertainment."
Pros: "Easy process, no issues. Pilot handled turbulence well, landed pretty smoothly. It was a good trip."
Cons: "No complaint except the trash other passengers left on the plan."
Pros: "Good crew Landed on time"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"
Pros: "The single best thing was that the cabin lights were dimmed on the way to Raleigh so I could sleep since it was so late. The crew was polite and patient. Getting re-booked for a new flight after my original flight had been cancelled wasn't too bad. Text message updates are helpful (but could use more info)."
Cons: "I arrived into Newark to find out that my flight had been cancelled. I'm still not sure why it was cancelled. Then, I was placed on a new flight that was intended to leave at 8:30pm, but didn't leave until 1:00am. I spent 10 hours in the Newark airport where, even though charging stations were in abundance, wifi was non-functioning. I received 7 text messages, each one with new departure times. I appreciated the texts, but would have liked to have more information about why we were delayed. Communication from gate agents can go such a long way. I spent a ton of money on bad airport food and couldn't work due to the lack of wifi. I never understand why nothing is offered to passengers in return for such delays--whatever happened to food vouchers, etc.?"
Pros: "Had the row to myself in Economy Plus. Beautiful afternoon skies. Easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Enjoyed the small size of the Raleigh airport."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the attendants were."
Cons: "I hated how it kept delaying and delaying I didn't know what to do or if to leave and come back time change was ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was fine and on time. All staff from the check-in to the flight were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The only complaints have to do with the other customers flying. Not reading up on the carry-on dimension guidelines and delaying everything. No issues with United at all."
Pros: "Our stewardess' were great."
Cons: "The seats were hard, the plane was cold, & the overhead lights were so bright and never turned off."
Pros: "We boarded the plane, made it to the runway when a light came on causing us to have to wait and wait on the plane until they had to bring us back to the gate where we had to exit the plane and go back to WAITING in the terminal. We were so delayed I missed all of my meetings and lost business because they could not give us an ETA at all or updated on our flight."
Pros: "Aisle seat."
Cons: "They made my dad check his bag even though there was space."
Pros: "Lots of room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. New plane but seats are incredibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time, in fact, arrival was early."
Cons: "The seating was a bit tight."
