Airline reviews

Pros: "Enough room in the seats / not too squished rows."
Cons: "Window shades couldn't be closed / they were stuck. Inside walls of the plane were peeling, scratched up, clogged sinks in restrooms. It was pretty grim looking all things considered."

Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "Friendly crew Free movies helped pass the time"

Pros: "Crew was amazing on board in the first class cabin"
Cons: "They advertise certain movies on their website but have a very limited selection on board. Couldn’t watch what I had wanted to watch."

Pros: "Pretty clean plane"
Cons: "The limited entertainment relative to other types of planes was challenging"

Pros: "Super comfortable seats, crew was amazing very tentative."

Pros: "Overall pleasant experience"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and very polite. I like that one carry on was included in my ticket. Enough leg room. Love the free in flight movies! Glad I didn’t have to purchase a beverage either."
Cons: "I will never understand the way boarding works. Did going from window groups, middle seat groups to aisle seat groups not work? I hate having to squeeze through and hope I don’t knock anyone in the face with my bag. I don’t like I can’t pick my seat and that my seatbelt is a little too tight. If I get a seat in the back I’m waiting for everyone else to get on and then for them to get off the plane. I guess I’ll have to pay the $75 fee for “first class” next time since that’s the only way to update my seat. And if I have a “saver rate” ticket - I should be able to still change my flight within 24 hours. I wanted to come back a day earlier and it was the same price! But I would’ve had to cancel and repurchase for an additional $200!!!"

Pros: "Alley to pre-board because of tailbone fracture."
Cons: "Landed in a peanut free section, and couldn’t eat our PB&J sandwiches at our seats We brought for lunch."

Pros: "No a full flight lot o room. Crew was great. Seats were so-so. Good leg room but afte5 5 hours hurts the backside."
Cons: "No being able to watch a movie because the app download prior to take off is in fine print so.. now they get to charge 10 bucks to rent there movie watcher screen."

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "super uncomfortable. They charge for everything except breathing oxygen."

Pros: "Very friendly professional crew. Crew members recognized our 50th wedding anniversary vacation with a complimentary tablet for entertainment plus wine and champagne!!!"

Pros: "Crew were attentive and professional but very friendly and appeared to genuinely enjoy interacting with passenger - something you don’t always see on airlines."

Cons: "As with most airlines today the seats are tight and uncomfortable in standard class."

Pros: "way more comfy seats than United or American"
Cons: "No movies or screens"

Pros: "Drinks were complimentary once the flight finally got underway. The staff were lovely despite being exhausted and frustrated."
Cons: "The flight was turned back due to an officer’s medical concern. The individual was standing in the gangway laughing and looking healthy while the passengers had to debark the plane and wait for 2 more hours before resuming the flight to Hawaii. When we arrived the majority of shops were closed; it was 7 hours late. Alaska offered a $200 voucher to make up for this."

Pros: "Customer service both on the phone and in person wede professional, friendly, and accommodating. They went out of their way to make our trip as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I, honestly, have no complaints about this flight."

Pros: "Affordable straight shot"
Cons: "Extremely cold on the plane, was wearing a winter coat scarf and mittens and was still freezing. Also, I paid for internet that didn't even work, I'm pretty pissed about that. I'll be sticking to Delta until you figure out your amenities."

Pros: "Travel time, good flt crew and flt."
Cons: "Seats were to short"

Pros: "Great pilot, made up for delays caused by gate crew."

Pros: "Professional staff. Very friendly. Flight on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Extra cramped. Very uncomfortable for 5 hour flight. Not even enough room to work on 13" laptop. Wanted extra $80 for 4" extra legroom. Seems steep for not really much difference. Airlines getting too cheap and cramming people in. Had to lean against window just to keep from bumping person next to me."

Pros: "Very good flight and great price."

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was great, media entertainment with gogoinflight worked fine on my laptop, food was good by airplane standards (got Ono bowl)."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "no complaints!"

Pros: "Loved how smooth it ran,such a professional crew,really made the time pleasant.i really wish all my flying times could be like this one,I would highly recommend this airline to all my friends,family and work partners,the crew was well verse in key Hawaiian words and very polite on departure."
Cons: "I think it would be to difficult to try and come up with anything,maybe I could say that the chicken was a little over cooked but that's it"

Pros: "worst flight ever on Alaska air. paid full fare first class and treated like a freeloader. hate to see their reputation go downhill. but like most airlines now, they are not interested in the premium customer. Ill go back to Delta..."

Pros: "Eveything in the plane looked fantastic. But still a tight fit. Drinks and food were offered often and the employees retrieved the garbage prompty. Best thing was we left on time and were early getting to Seattle. Our baggage got to the baggage claim area at lightening speed. At least 4 times faster than with our return trip on Spirit. (It took forever"

Pros: "flight was good and on time"
Cons: "in flight entertainment ok but cant use it with out apps that you cant"

Pros: "The boarding process was unhurried and they offered free checked bags to keep the overhead storage from overflowing."
Cons: "The noise level in the cabin was high. I'm glad that I have Bose noise-cancelling headphones."

Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"

Cons: "Two days before flight online seating chart showed no seats available that were together in main cabin so I bought "economy plus" seats. There were actually 32 empty seats in economy, many people had while rows to themselves. What a ripoff."

Pros: "Nice crew and yum cheese plate"
Cons: "Late boarding and late arrival."

Pros: "Everything and everyone. Friendly, helpful, decent legroom and love the direct flight from SEA to DTW!"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "While traveling recently with Alaska Airlines, my traveling partner and I were offered seats in the exit row, by the lady who checks your boarding pass at the gate. We gladly excepted the roomier seating. We were issued new boarding passes, and made our way to our seats. Once we settled in, a flight attendant asked to see my boarding pass. She looked at it and said, "Yep Amber so-and-so, seat 17B." Apparently, the airline had combined 2 flights, so people were all crammed into a new tighter space. There was even a bumped "first class" customer all squabbling over the seats. My traveling partner and I, eventually just asked them to please give us our old seats back. Finally, we were seated in our original seats. We never asked to be moved in the first place, it was offered to us. The whole thing was humiliating, and unnecessary."

Cons: "The whole boarding process by the time my group was boarded there was no overhead bin space for either my wife's or mine one carry on piece. The flight amendments did nothing to try and help me find room for any of them even though there were coats backpacks and purses filling the overhead bins. So we had to ride with both our carryon jammed under our seats and no legroom for 5 plus hours. Miserable never again!"

Pros: "Everything went just as it should."
Cons: "Nothing went wrong."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "It was fast and friendly. They took a lot of guesswork out and made us feel safe."
Cons: "The planes were a bit small for flying 6+ hours. I started getting restless at having to sit in the same position for that long."

Pros: "fast and efficient boarding process, with plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row, next to the bathrooms. Since they did 4 in-flight beverages during the 5 hr flight, people kept getting stuck by the bathroom unable to get back to their seats. This seemed like an excessive amount of beverage services (contributed towards people needing to use the bathroom so much) and contributed to a bunch of people covering over my seat for most of the flight."

Cons: "Charging for food is lame."

Pros: "noting they suck"
Cons: "they where late taking off because one of there stewardess was late one hour ....HORRIBLE SERVICE....."

Pros: "The crew was exceptional"
Cons: "Nothing that would be worth mentioning, I don't fly very much so I'm not comfortable doing it yet"

Pros: "We were very satisfied overall."

Pros: "It was pretty good. This was my first Alaska Airlines flight. Seattle to Maui was better than Newark to Seattle. First flight was uncomfortable. Seat did not recline. Didn't try the food. I took Virgin to Newark from Maui, and Alaska on return. I had high expectations from Virgin, but I liked Alaska better."

Cons: "To cramped for the tall"

"On time, cordial service,"

"Simple and easy"

"Had a crying baby the whole flight. When we arrived at the gate we had to wait for the gangway."

"Don’t give me a chair that can’t lean back. I got one in both legs of my flight. And I know I did not select those seats."

Cons: "Headphone availability"

Pros: "Boarded plane back to front once Priority members boarded. Overall staff and Pilots were great. A quick flight of 75 minutes. Tea, coffee or water provided along with a small snack. Smooth flight and only minor delays which were handled in a timely manner."

Cons: "Enforcing covid restrictions"

Pros: "Short flight good crew"
Cons: "Better seats and comfort. Better plane and at least a much more cleaner plane. These air planes are showing their age and need a refresh of the cabin."

Pros: "Middle seats not booked. Cabin very clean, bathrooms kept tidy throughout trip. Very friendly crew. Appreciated cold drinks and selection of snacks,"

Cons: "We didn't really have social distancing on board but it was as good as could. be expected"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"

Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"

Cons: "Felt unsafe. Guy with guns and how delta employees handled it blew my mind!"

Cons: "Better choices for food"

Pros: "No entertainment on the plane and plane was very small..."
Cons: "Explain flight situations better.."

Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"

Cons: "Rude crew. Dirty plane."

Cons: "Significant delay of departure."

Pros: "Very professional."

Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."

Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."

Pros: "The seat was great, I wish all seats on the plane were that comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, everyone was great"

Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Especially the pilot and copilot"
Cons: "Boarding process."

Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"

Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."

Cons: "delayed flight"

Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The on flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Sleeping was too uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large man (6’5” he said) and had no room in my seat. Thankfully the seats in front of us were empty and the flight attendant moved him."

Pros: "Able to watch a movie, even though can't finished it."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE, LATE ARRIVAL IN ATLANTA. Good thing I brought some snacks. My seat was changed to the window (I hated it) instead of aisle as I pickedbefore when I checked in in Amsterdam. I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."

Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."

Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."

Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."

Pros: "everything was perfect. Even though our flight was international the delta airline app allowed us to complete check in process without major delays. - 5 star in flight service and flight attendant personnel"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "Swift travel!"

Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."

Cons: "Its a 3.5 hr flight. No charging outlets available. Food options very limited by the time they got to me, row 26. No in -seat entertainment screen. Hard seats."

Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."

Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."

Cons: "Sat on the plane on the tarmac for over an hour in the cold..."

Cons: "Flights on time"

Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "This was an almost 6 hour long flight, LAX to OGG. The aircraft was older and for a 6 hour flight, they really should use a bigger and newer aircraft. The entertainment systems on the back of the seat worked sporadically and the PA system was too loud and every time the PA system was used while we had our headsets on, it was excruciating We had no warning in order to remove our headsets before it blasted into our ears. We were amazed that after paying a considerable sum for our tickets and being in the air for 6 hours, there was limited meal service and we were required to purchase a sandwich in order to eat. I fly Delta frequently and this was by far the worse flight I can remember."

Cons: "Layover"

Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."

Pros: "Seating was nice...comfortable. Lighting was good, captain wasn't too chatty :)"
Cons: "This flight attendant was just terrible. Wish I could remember her name for this review... She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."

Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"

Cons: "Completely threw our afternoon plans and next day on their head because of the flight delays. Not cool."

Cons: "Plane not cleaned at all. Seats and tray tables dirty had crumbs all over"

Cons: "Little planes need an interior restoration to make them look better."

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice enough and the snacks/beverages were average/as expected."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for more than 2.5 hours and the communication was poor. The gate agents weren’t helpful. The airport didn’t have enough outlets. Or chairs. My flight out to this location was also delayed by over three hours. At least they tried to make us feel better by telling us what was going on. The staff at the airport were rude and unhelpful and United airlines is unreliable."

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "I didn’t even make this flight!"

Pros: "One of the crew members was very good"
Cons: "The food!!! Would have been nice to have screens for the movies"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"

Pros: "Crew were friendly. The entertainment system they have was excellent. Plus gave out free ear buds, cheap ones I’m sure but still free."
Cons: "The leg room on this flight was very tight. I’m a short person and it was still very tight and uncomfortable."

Cons: "On time departures"

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "It was a NINE hour flight and there was NO FOOD provided!!! Why do we have to pay extra for the crappy food??"

Cons: "It took 45 minutes for the luggage to arrive at the carousel, and they sent it to the wrong carousel. Not sure if it was at the other one the whole time, or just took that long."

Cons: "Seats too narrow."

Pros: "It landed."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganized. The seats are ridiculously small n close. The cabin was uncomfortably hot. The seats literally reclined 1 inch, no joke. No food on a 6 hour flight. The tv screens where 20 years old n the size of an iPhone plus. The flight just sucked and United has taken a huge dive in my opinion of them."

Pros: "United Airlines Flight 202 Left on time. It was a Boeing 777 so it had a lot of room."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed focused only on the small First Class section and rushed through everything in the Economy Class. They rushed through the "Food Service" and didn't want to answer questions about what is on their menu. The menu was removed from the magazines in our row. Fortunately, we brought our own snacks. The Economy CLass cabin had a terrible odor. It really smelled. Maybe they should clean the plane once in a while. United Airlines ALWAYS has issues with entertainment. You MUST download their App to your cell phone. Then, they allow you to connect to their entertainment system. If you don't, you cannot access WiFi without paying $26 for the flight ... the WiFi access is inconsistent and limiting and doesn't always work so the download doesn't always complete. This was a nine hour flight from Hell. I think I prefer Frontier Airlines. Although the airlines make you pay for everything now, at least you expect some attention and food options and a plane that doesn't smell. It was nauseating. Don't even ask me about the "Miles" that they keep screwing up ... RAY HANANIA"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All I got was a $20 food voucher for a 9 hour delay and missed meeting."
Cons: "All I got was a $20 food voucher for a 9 hour delay and missed meeting."

Cons: "We were delayed in Detroit due to deicing the plane. We landed in Houston late. They let us and a few other couples off the plane first so we could make our connection. We sprinted off the plane and arrived to the gate two minutes after they closed the door; plane was still there and they would not let us on. United knew we were coming and they closed the door anyway. The next flight out to Liberia, Costa Rica wasn’t for two more days. They ended up rebooking us on a flight to Panama which had a connection to San Jose, Costa Rica. Much farther of a drive from that airport. Very disappointed in how United handled this situation, we were told if it was a bigger group they would have held the plane for us. I will never fly United again but I know it has nothing to do with Kayak. Kayak has always been great and is my go to for booking plane tickets."

Pros: "I was connecting from another flight. The plane left on time, and arrived earlier than planned. I've had much worse experiences on domestic flights, and I was expecting delays."

Cons: "I had to cancel my trip due to family illness. And I guess that is not acceptable to United Airlines for a refund or reschedule without a fee that I could actually buy a new ticket for the cost of their fee. So I am losing out $578.00 Not happy."

Pros: "The flight was fine. Nothing that should have been positive stands out as missing."
Cons: "The first class flight attendant (male) was the worst. No interest in being on the plane, didn't bother to speak clearlybon the announcements. United should pull this person off of flight duty and deal with this person. The second is a terrible parent who let their kid cry the whole flight and afterwards in the jet way. This wasn't an infant had to be 4-5 years old and there was no parenting at all. The kid was old enough to be talked to. If you're kids can't handle flying, you don't get to fly."

Cons: "Flight attendant had a lot of attitude. I live in Maui so I'm used to the whole "I'm local and you're not" entitled attitude some locals have, but it was completely uncalled for and unprofessional to do this to visitors. She literally asked the passengers where they were from and then launched into how she was local and it was her way or the highway. She was also really incompetent at the job overall. She gave me attitude and anyone that required her to do her job."

Pros: "I think was a zero-drama, one-hour flight from DTW to IAD. Can't ask for anything better than that (seriously)."

Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."

Pros: "Comfy seats and a smooth ride."
Cons: "Waited to taxi for almost an hour."

Cons: "2 of the flight attendants were not friendly and one was flat out rude. They handed out some form that needed to be filled out before we entered Hawaii. When I asked for a pen she said they don't hand out pens and to start asking neighbors, which didn't have any either., however when she came back around to pick the forms up and some people didn't have them filled out she reprimanded everyone and kept saying you had 5 hours to fill these out. Her communication skills were not what I expected and her lectures were not necessary."

Pros: "Boarding was really easy"
Cons: "Not only you have to pay for checking one bag, not only you have to pay for a poor meal, you also have to bring your own device to watch a movie!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."

Pros: "Flight crew was great, cockpit crew top notch, very smooth landing, entertaining and informative post flight info from pilot. Food was almost non existant, entertainment non existant, leg room cramped. Can the airlines do any more to make passengers miserable?"

Cons: "I was unable to load on to the plane after trying to confirm my conferirmatiojn. I was scheduled for a flight from Detroit to Newark New Jersey . I had received a hematoma at the airport directly prior to the flight at the counter in Detroit. It was essential that I be on the flight because my aunt died the next day and was extraordinarily ill. This was all explained to the agent. They did nothing to help in this mess. I ended up flying to Washington DC on a different airline. They did nothing to try to help. I want a refund for this flight. There is no reason the airline could have helped out in some way. I have emergency room bills and death notices. Thanks for your help."

Pros: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"

Pros: "That I was able to get out of the ide seat"
Cons: "Because my flight was delayed I got re-routed so I no longer was. In preimier section and had to leave even later, and I was placed in a middle seat."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful, food was ok."
Cons: "It is uncomfortable, you can´t select a decent seat and there´s no entertainment, you hae to pay for it. There's suppose to be an option with mobile devices but when you make the ticket purchase it only says that entertainment is included in longflights and it is not. I paid for the entertrainment system but you have only some options and the movies start according to their own schedule so you can't really pick what you want to watch. And the directv remotes are not set in a good place, the are in the arm rest, so everytime the person next to you moves the wrong way they change your channel or turn the volume down or something else. For such an expensive and long flight the tiny space between chairs and entertainment lack is unacceptable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It cost me money to rent a hotel to stay overnight and get here in the morning and my flight was still delayed because there was no body to tow the the plane and bring it to the gate . Miss work , miss appointments , etc . Pharmacy about to shortdown because of this poor notifications . Could have gotten an American Airlines direct flight to Dallas in the morning and minimize the situation"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight got hit with a fuel tankard and I had to stay in a hotel for the night. I didn't get to fly home that night and it messed up my entire schedule for the weekend."

Cons: "4 hour delay"

Cons: "It was so late it left me in the lurch and ruined my week"

Cons: "Seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable and felt like a very old mattress in desespertly need of replacement"

Pros: "Boarding was very smooth, and flight was very timely (landed early)."
Cons: "Male flight attendant was extremely rude. I was asleep when the food was being served and politely asked for a tray of food once I woke up. Fight attendant that I asked was at the time collecting trash and snapped back saying that he had to finish what he was doing first. After about 10 min the lady attendant walked by so I simply mentioned that I was waiting for my food in case he had forgotten or was busy. She asked if I had mentioned it to the man attendant and I told her that I had and that I was simply waiting. She proceeded to go to him (not sure what she told him), but he later came by and angrily handed me my tray of food and annoyingly explained that he had to finish handing the trash In order to then handle my food. I told him that I completely understood, and he AGAIN snapped back saying "oh really? Because I heard you were complaining!" And walked away. The rest of the flight he proceeded to ignore me. I had been nothing but polite to him. The lady across the isle was looking his way and the man next to me made a comment to me that I had done nothing wrong and mentioned he he noticed how rude the attendant was to me. That even if I HAD complained, he was in no place to confront a customer about it. Regardless, I hadn't even complained one bit."

Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."

Pros: "The crew were all very nice and clearly well trained. The seats had plenty of leg room. For being an early flight I was able to take a nap on the plane comfortably."
Cons: "It listed that there was private tvs for each passenger but I didn't see a single screen. Maybe I needed to be more proactive with asking about them."

Pros: "Getting there."
Cons: "flight crew could give a sh!t. Had to connect and came in late, made no assistance to get connecting passengers off first. Tv option sucks. Have to pay to watch anything. Couldn't even watch plane progress. Pay for that too. Only thing on is a cooking show. And yes you have to pay for food. Interesting. Food is decent though. That was a plus. All but one of the crew seemed pissed about being there. I know passengers suck. At least the guy that looked like Tim meadows from snl was nice. A 5 hour flight and they plane has no wifi (I get it) but also no charging ports??? Just gives the feeling of being held hostage for 5 hours and the only savior is your Visa. I'd hate to see how parents with kids handle it."

Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "Plane was crowded and seats were small and crammed"

Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so I had to put my carry on under the seat in front of me meaning less leg room. There was no entertainment."

Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."

Cons: "for this 6hrs flt I feel for the price of the flt you need more variety of foods served without a cost."

Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."

Pros: "UA is always reliable and professional with both transport and with digital and telephone passenger communications; but not doing well with the customer experience with cabin crew and airport HR."
Cons: "Jaded airport and cabin crew: clearly not loving their jobs. There's a dramatic difference in flight crews in other countries; consistently, UA crews seem to be neither appreciating, nor loving their jobs compared to other airlines and markets."

Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"

Pros: "Front seats behind first class lots of room"
Cons: "Not enough choices on food, would be nice to preorder gluten dairy free option"

Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."
