"plane was delayed 1 hour"

Cons: "The flights keep delaying every connection"

Cons: "Excellent trip"

Cons: "Didn’t board back to front, I know the flights are packed, but it’s still faster and safer. Flight was delayed because of a bag count? How long can it take to empty it and re-pack it?"

Pros: "The crew and leg room are really good compared to comparable flights on United, Delta or American. Especially love the power plug behind the seats."
Cons: "Couldn't watch any movies, and most of the DirectTV movies would not play. I was in seat 24 F, and 24 E had the same issue. They told us the reset the system, but it didn't help. Still, plenty of entertainment and on an actual screen on the back of the seat. So I consider it only a dissapointment on an otherwise good airline."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Jetblue is just amazing, lots of smiles, tv, free fast WiFi , free snacks and drinks !"
Cons: "More flights out of RIC."

Pros: "An excellent crew makes the flight so much comfy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "Nice crew, better planes than Spirit Airlines!!"
Cons: "Multiple delays & gate changes! Arrived 2 hours later than expected- not good for my ride home who had to wait so long!!"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They were quick to help when needed."
Cons: "The plug that connects to the headset was broken. The selection of movies could be better. Needed more family oriented programs."

Pros: "Spacious seats. Friendly crew."
Cons: "A lot of announcements on PA. Made it difficult to rest/sleep"

Pros: "On time service, decent plane with good crew"
Cons: "Satisfactory flight"

Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "Tv selection"

Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."

Pros: "Airplane was very comfortable. Flight was delayed a bit, but airline kept us well informed."

Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"

Pros: "Everyone was friendly and kind. The flight was on-time."

Cons: "None"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "No explanation given for delay."

Cons: "Faucets leaked causing 1.5 hour delay"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The chair was broken and keep going back"

Pros: "Friendly, down to earth staff that looks like their happy to be there, including Pilot."
Cons: "Every time my flight is always late and I usually have my family with me. An on time flight would be nice."

Pros: "Leg room entertainment and coffee"
Cons: "Three hour wait on plane due to maintenance issue. Pilot kept stating he thought it would be resolved in 15-20 minute. We were given water but not offered anything else. We were not given option to get off the plane nor given any compensation or good will gesture like a 25 Voucher etc. I was disappointed withJet Blue."

Pros: "They have cheezits and leg room and it's a quick direct flight"
Cons: "Male flight attendant seemed annoyed to be there. It wasn't obvious but as someone who works in the service industry I could tell he was being short with people and could have provided a much better experience if he wanted to be there. Intercom messages sounded like an annoyed demand because we were bad passengers not an announcement simply alerting us of the seatbelt sign being turned on again"

Cons: "Made it to my destination 2 hours later."

Cons: "Had to pick up gate-checked bag at carousel. But it arrived quickly."

Cons: "We were delayed for over two hours."

Pros: "Amazed with the attentiveness and comfort on the plane. The snacks were great had a few options that other airlines dont."
Cons: "Nothing! Completely satisfied with my flight."

Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early! The staff are always great, free drinks and snacks, plus personal entertainment for all. One of my planes was brand spanking new - it was gorgeous and oh so comfy! I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Left right on time."

Pros: "Check in crew at BOS was great - this team of folks is not on the rating, but wanted to call out that they were very friendly and helpful, one kind lady walking me thru the bag tag printing process when I hadn’t realized I needed to do that."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was distracting. I was trying to read and would have preferred that it was dark. I didn’t want to bother anyone to ask how to shut it off so I just put up with it. Is it possible to shut the screen off if you don’t want to use It?"

Pros: "JetBlue has the best snack options."

Pros: "The professionalism of the crew while still having a good time and making it a great experience. Am a frequent flier and this is an airline I hope to travel on again very soon!"

Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "It was bumpy and my mom is a very nervous person"

Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."

Pros: "more leg room, real snacks"
Cons: "horrible sound quality on the in flight movies/TV"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "No priority boarding for credit card holders"

Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."

Cons: "1/2 hr late"

Pros: "Everything was terrific...on time and a very smooth experience including the flight! Thank you!"

Pros: "Got a TSA Pre Check stamp on my ticket to start, flight was on time and the crew was professional and very accommodating."

Pros: "Friendly polite crew, good takeoff and landing, little turbulence. Our flight was delayed, but only by half an hour."
Cons: "Having to pay twice because I'm a person of size and hang only little over when most of the back of the plane was empty. I can see having to pay for the seat to reserve it, and having to pay if I'm using 2 seats and the plane is full otherwise, but if the flight isn't full, I should be able to get a refund for one of the seats. It's discrimination and it's not okay. Or, you know, have seats that fit all your customers. Also the SiriusXM sound was of extremely poor quality."

Pros: "I just really appreciate the staff ,the attitudes are wonderful always there ready to help you. And the airplanes are very comfortable and roomy. And it seems like my flights are always on time or early."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "TV sets JetBlue apart - except when it doesn't work. Snack choices are bad."
Cons: "No TV; plane was not clean - smelled like the toilet overflowed. And this was the first flight of the day - the plane was parked at the gate for over an hour prior to boarding."

Pros: "Professional, friendly, always on-time or earl, nothing lost ever.. Smooth flight. Always the BEST!"

Pros: "The service was good, the snacks are always good."
Cons: "It was a 9:15 pm flight, and was delayed about an hour due to maintenance issues. So it made for a later than expected arrival. But I am glad you took the care to make sure that everything was okay by changing the gate and putting us on another plane. The flight was the bumpiest I have had with JetBlue, but that was just due to the atmosphere."

Cons: "Night flights should include blankets and pillows. (at no extra cost) Just like a hotel. Traveling with bulky blankets and pillows in order to be able to sleep on a night flight is not always possible. JB provides eyemask and ear plugs, which is ridiculous. I can bring my own eyemask and ear plugs. I even paid extra for upgrade seats! The headrests are not adjustable and the recline is barely noticeable. It was a long 6 hour flight! No entertainment. I have flown other airlines to South America and been able to enjoy full feature recent release films, TV shows and games. Why can't JB figure out how to do that on their international flights? No meals. All other airlines offer meal service on their international flights. I pay as much for JB flights as I have for other airlines going to South America. The value for JB tickets just isn't there. To fly JB, picture yourself getting on board with your own pillows, blankets, entertainment and food. That about sums it up."

"Liked the overall experience. More outlets to charge devices at airport gates."

Pros: "Very courteous"

Pros: "The crew was awesome! The steward was engaging and made us all laugh and feel comfortable for a short flight when he didn’t have to. He had a great sense of humor and gave the kids cookies and wings. Something I haven’t seen in many years. He and the pilots were great!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The cabin crew was helpful and professional"

Pros: "Flight attendant Bret wen out of his way to help us locate a lost pillow."
Cons: "First flight attendant asking about the pillow she found in the aisle and kicked to the side."

Cons: "Delta delayed the flight from LAX to SLC, which subsequently made me miss the connecting flight from SLC to ORD. Completely unacceptable"

Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi stopped working halfway"

Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."

Pros: "Preboarded and all went smooth and quick"

Pros: "Transfer f from first flight leg"
Cons: "Food and the 757 lay out"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."

Cons: "Pilots did a great job in informing us why the seat salt had to be turned on."

Cons: "On time, free upgrade."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an older, smaller plane and it had more leg room. Appears I’ll have to start checking Delta to see what birds flying the leg."

Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"

Cons: "The female flight attendant needs an attitude adjustment. She behaved as though she was doing a favor"

Cons: "Don't like the towel dispenser location and function. Can't find it when standing and a bunch of them come out at one time."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "They wouldn't deal with any flight changes."

Pros: "The crew on board were helpful"
Cons: "Delta staff at airport were unprofessional. They had us spend over an hour traveling to a different TSA line because they closed the line we were in. The other line was a 10 minute drive away. Also our bags did not reach philadelphia when we landed at 3 am."

Pros: "Nothing..there was literally nothing that I liked about this flight. The gate clerks were helpful."
Cons: "Sooooo many things......there was NO PILOT!!!! Delta knew this 30 minutes before my flight landed and yet Delta did not post or communicate that the flight was going to be delayed and then ultimately cancelled because there was NO PILOT. Of course when they scheduled the flight for the following day not only did they not have a full crew, they had NO PLANE. On the whole, it was pretty terrible."

Cons: "Seats are really tight"

Pros: "Staff lovely"

Pros: "Above feedback is for the MSP to GEG flight"

Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Not much to like here. The new crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Old crew was surly. Plane had much problems and finally replaced. Left 5 hrs late. Delta claims it doesn't have to compensate for a late flight - just a cancelled one so guess which this was The baggage fees are obscene and the gouging of the customer is immoral. No wonder people hate the airlines."

Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."

Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "No A/C on the flight. Good thing it was a short one... Crew seemed rather green. Oversold flight; we were the last to board."

Pros: "Flight crew took very good care of us. They served several snacks, meals and free wine on the 8+ hours flight from Prague to NYC. The hot towels to freshen up before meals was a nice touch!"

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"

Pros: "delays for a long time to get to the gate than delays for more than 2 hours for a crew to come in..."

Pros: "I'm surprise that Delta airline serves free dinner for domestic flight, which is definitely a compliment. I would travel with Delta airline again"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Efficient boarding and unloading. Friendly staff. Good movies/tv shows."
Cons: "There was a storm so we flew in circles for over an hour. I didn't see headphones for the tvs (mine are bluetooth so they didn't work)."

Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"

Pros: "I rated entertainment as 1* as there is no N/A option. Flight was very pleasant."

Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Poor food"

Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment"
Cons: "We sat in the plane at the gate for a hour, boo"

Pros: "As expecred."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process."

Cons: "Because I refused to pay extra money after booking my family of three on your flight, you separated us into middle seats scattered in the back of the airplane. I believe this is evil underhanded extortion after you had already published price and I had agreed by clicking to buy the ticket."

Pros: "Boarding and deplaning was done three rows at a time. It worked great."

Pros: "Seat was okay, but I thought we weren't doing center seats because of Covid risk. That plane was packed tight."
Cons: "They made me store my bag, because I had a guitar which has always been allowed as a carry on. Its a fragile instrument, and has always been allowed as a carry on."

Pros: "Flight, plane, and crew were great."
Cons: "MEX customs was a nightmare."

Pros: "Nobody bugged me"
Cons: "I like attention"

Cons: "Check in. A nightmare Boarding. A nightmare Waiting 1 hour for the bags to arrive. A nightmare"

Pros: "Comfy seats onboard Good selection of movies Decent food from MEX to SFO"
Cons: "I purchased ticket stating business class for both legs, but the first leg of my trip did not have a business class cabin at all. I did not get what i paid for!!!! My seat back IFE did not work at all. Boarding experience was terrible and took forever. The lounge MEX was overcrowded with non-functioning wifi"

Cons: "The airplane had a heating sensor issue so they had to move us to another airplane and the flight was delayed 2 and a half hours"

Pros: "Crew amazing, food really good, I just had a better experience because the lack of leg room, my 3 years old was hitting the next seat so the lady totally ignorant and mediocre was arguing with me."
Cons: "Change people seats when they are very picky"

Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Just a bit more room for a person that's 6'2"."

Cons: "sitting on tarmac for awhile"

Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Seats are horrible, not ergonomic at all"

Pros: "Efficient boarding clean cabin"
Cons: "No food offered except chips, no entertainment on international flight"

Pros: "Comfortable, prompt, clean."

Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable, smooth and overall satisfactory. They gave us a sandwich meal and there was some inflight entertainment (which I didn’t use)."
Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."

Pros: "I loved the attention of all the staff of aeromexico very friendly and helpful I am happy to have traveled with Aeromexico"

Pros: "I was really impressed with the friendly and efficient service from Aeromexico. First time flying them and really appreciated the experience - so much better than the service on US airlines."

Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."

Pros: "Our ~5 hour lay over in Benito Juarez airport was not good."
Cons: "Airport was very warm no AC. Crowded. Poor variety for sit down restaurants. They too were crowded and poor service and expensive."

Pros: "My husband and I enjoyed the convenience of the direct flight. It was so much better than spending several hours in airports just to save a few dollars."

Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"

Pros: "First class was nice onboard the plane, but too tired to enjoy it since it was a 1am flight."
Cons: "The counters did not open until 10pm, only 2hrs B4 "the flight closed at 12 midnight), even though they say arrive 180 minutes early. The "SkyPriority" line was the slowest line. At the outset two agents weren't even helping guests. This was a very frustrating experience. Unfortunately, I had to pickup and recheck my bag and ended up waiting outside security for several hours because there was no where to drop the bag after passing immigration from my connecting flight. I suggest AM get another airline's baggage handler to recheck bags for early arriving customers so at least they can wait inside security where amenities abound."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad service!"

Cons: "The crew was very rude, since the counter not helpful at all. The boarding was late."

Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."

Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"

Cons: "the attention during the delay was terrible. No A/C, and no possibilities of returning tio the terminal while they worked on fixing the plane... and the crew diidn't allow us to use our phones, or offered water"

Cons: "The Guy didn't assign seats together for us even though there were enough seats, so we had to explain him to do so, I to not understand why do I have to take tings away from my luggage to my hand bag in order to document it for free, the plane will carry exactly the same weight but inside the cabin; I suggest to use an overall weight including the passenger weight for allowance. The guy didn't tell that we had to pick our luggage in Mexico City and put it to the connecting flight."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and I was able to have a good rest. Very unusual nowadays when flying economy class."
Cons: "The food was plain horrible, and miserable. Shame on the company to dare serve a meal like that! The entertainment screen did not work and nobody responded to my complaint. The crew ( mainly the female part of the team) was unfriendly."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Boarding was super unorganized everyone was all over the place."

Pros: "The movie was probably the best."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed, I missed my connecting flight. Neither the crew or the pilot apologized for the 3 hour delay. I will never fly Aeromexico again"

Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."

Cons: "Everytime we fly with Aeromexico our luggage is misplaced. This is the third time our luggage has been lost or forgotten. When asked for assistance not one flight member is there to help, and we end up waiting hours for assistance."

Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."

Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."

Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."

Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"

Pros: "All the airplane attendants were super helpful and friendly. And the complementary food and drinks were s delicious and refreshing, which is surprising for an airplane company."
Cons: "The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because in Mexico City due to the Mexican government we had to transfer our bags manually. Nothing due to Aeromexico's doing."

Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Plane over an hour late. Missed my bus connection to Reno."

Pros: "The crew was so friendly the planes are spacious and they give you a free meal and drink the movies and shows make the trip a lot smoother"

Cons: "the sandwich was on a croissant I rather had a bread."

Cons: "Old plane slow crew. Seemed like they never were around j. Business class"

Pros: "Restroom was clean"
Cons: "I was seated in the last row of seats in the plane in the aisle side. Passengers annoyed me while making the line to access the restroom. And a flight attendant kept complaining in a bad mood about the line in the bathroom. All these factors made my trip not to be the perfect experience I always have with Aeromexico."

Cons: "Luggage took a really long time to come out."

"Flight was delayed by one hour, then another 1/2 hour then cancelled and changed till the next day. We were not allowed to get our luggage & put up in a dirty hotel. I had cockroaches in the bathroom. When I finally arrived home…i noticed the airline had damaged the zipper on my suitcase. An awful awful trip thanks to American Airlines."

Pros: "Check-in started a bit late due to late arriving incoming flight but the crew at the gate as well as in the plane did their best to speed the process. Flight was smooth, lande ontime despite taking off nearly 20 minutes late. Captain kept us informed when, through no fault of American Airlines there was a delay at the gate. Overall well done in these trying times."
Cons: "It will be nice when things are back to normal and actual food is served on flights of 4 or more hours duration."

Cons: "The AC was off while we were waiting to takeoff so it never felt cool in the cabin for the hour(ish) long flight we had. I don’t know if it was the size of plane that made it so we couldn’t have that on while taxiing/waiting our turn to take off or what, but it was too hot and stuffy onboard in Texas on the tarmac. Our next flight from Dallas to Huntsville, AL had the AC on the entire time we were waiting our turn/taking off- the plane was newer and slightly bigger. Not sure what the deal was but it made the flight pretty miserable."

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."

Pros: "The staff at seatac airport were condescending and not helpful...traveling with a service dog and made to pay the pet fee and talked about me where I can over hearnthen in a manner that embarassed me"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "cheaper"

Cons: "I sat in row 8, a main cabin extra row, just behind first class. The MCE seats are supposed to have a few extra inches but I actually had less room than if I sat in regular economy. The reason is because the wall behind first class comes straight down and prevents you from fully extending your feet. Newer layouts have a small cut out or stop the wall short of the floor so you can fully extend you legs."

Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"

Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"

Pros: "cabin attendant was excellent"
Cons: "terrible plane because overhead space is extremely limited and the curvature of the plane limits legroom for window seats."

Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Pros: "Excellent crew (not bossy, obnoxious and officious like UA), on-time, easy boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. This was an excellent flight."

Pros: "Nice personnel"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "We left a few minutes early"

Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."

Cons: "No one knew what was going on. We boarded late, then sat there for 40 minutes with no communication, then we had to de-plane. But they couldn't get the jet way to work, so it took forever."

Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."

Cons: "The plane was delayed almost two hours and we had to deplane about a 3 minute walk to the airport in the rain. What I’ve come to expect from American Airlines unfortunately"

Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."

Pros: "Crew was great, and flight was relatively on time."
Cons: "Itinerary I received was for British Airways, with whom I have always had excellent experiences. However, I discovered at check-in I would actually be traveling on American Airlines with a different flight no. I had already provided my BA flight numbers to family. No explanation was give to me prior to flight that this would be the case. Food was terrible- even for Coach class - I don't always expect a gourmet meal, but BA was consistently good in the past, so I had positive expectations. My personal entertainment system did not work properly so I could not use it."

Pros: "Great flight, on time, comfortable with great takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Recommended to all my friends"

Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"

Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."

Pros: "The entertainment"

Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"

Pros: "On time. Jet rather than a turbo-prop plane. Quick flight."
Cons: "Somewhat haphazard boarding. Not even a cookie for a snack."

Cons: "Food in general"

Pros: "that i finally came home"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Ran out of sandwiches on PDX to CLT leg. ☹️"

Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."

Cons: "Delayed!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"

Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"

Cons: "AC didn't work and no beverage service or WiFi"

Pros: "Boarding was very quick, they called the groups quickly with no lag time in between."
Cons: "I think this was the most cramped airplane I have been on. It was so uncomfortable and I would think that they would take this into consideration since it was a red eye flight."

Cons: "Unexplained 45-minute delay on second flight."

Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"

Pros: "Everythinf was great, First time flying with them and I would do it again."

Pros: "Swift boarding."

Cons: "Plane was late because of malfunctioning jetway"

Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"

Pros: "Departed on time arrived a little early"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as other flights I've been on."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I like that their fleet has become slightly more modernized. Leathers seats are a plus"
Cons: "In flight entertainment and charging stations are a must. Slightly lacking in both those. Their flagship dreamliners have all these amenities but are new planes. Boarding on American seems like a broken process."

Pros: "Staff werected all very helpful and and pleasant. Pilot navigated a smooth line."
Cons: "Nothing stands out"

Pros: "The fact that I was finally put in the plane at the last minute"
Cons: "The fact that I was confirmed on this flight and no one would give me a seat assignment. Not when I checked in 2 hours early for my initial flight from MHT nor when I arrived in Philadelphia to catch this next leg. They made me wait at the gate and then went and checked the plane and came back and said board and take any empty seat! Never again!"

Pros: "Why put a 6ft plus 200lb person between two smaller strangers. By far the worst part"

Cons: "Availability of on-board meals, I wasn’t able to purchase anything. Nothing available from the lunch menu even at the exact lunch time, in a +5h flight. Truly disappointed"

Pros: "Quick boarding, no delays."
Cons: "The control for the entertainment system is strangely located on the armrest, so the person next to me was constantly changing my system's volume and channels by simply using the armrest."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Where should I begin? Incoming flight was late, so UA 1560 was delayed. After boarding, IFE was not working. Crew could not get it to work. Snack options were NON-existent for a 5-hour flight. Upon arriving at Newark, the gate was not available. Come on United this is your hub. Final straw, the baggage took about 50 to 60 minutes to arrive."

Cons: "working bathroom and entertainment system"

Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Seating is kind of cramped. More legroom would be appreciated."

Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"

Cons: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."

Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."

Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."

Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."

Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."

Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"

Pros: "It got me to Houston, but that’s about it"
Cons: "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"

Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"

Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"

Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."

Pros: "At least I made it back home in one day. The airline honored our business ageeement."
Cons: "I waited for a wheele chair that was requested from day one, but the wheeled chair never arrived. I had to venture out on foot despite my resent back surgery. It took me tree times more the time that usually takes me to make it to my destination. I only thank God for protecting me through this day."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."

Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"
Cons: "Being 6'6" on a super small plane is never too much fun"

Pros: "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
Cons: "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."

Pros: "Food for purchase"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for 2 hours and not being offered food or drink or to be taken back to the gate"

Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "That they lost my bags"

Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"

Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."

Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"

Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."

Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"

Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."

Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."

Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."

Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."

Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."

Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. Both going and return were so on time, it was amazing. On the way home the in flight entertainment was out for the duration of the flight and nobody in the crew really took the time to address it - thought that was a little odd. Thanks again!"

Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."

Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "They changed our gate from one end of the terminal to another right at the time of boarding and made no announcements. We all found out by text or had to be told by other passengers."

Pros: "personal service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."

Pros: "I cancelled this flight.....not sure why Kayak keeps sending me these emails."

Pros: "The amount of leg room"
Cons: "Snacks are shrinking"

Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. There was no option for on flight entertainment (despite it being an international flight). Probably would never fly United internationally again."
