Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was very service oriented. Appreciate their constant offer of water."
Cons: "Someone should know how to make your entertainment system run on iPAD. I preloaded your system before boarding. However, even though I can access your menu, I can not play any movies. The crew tried to help but no one could figure out how to make it work on iPad."

Pros: "Always great crew on Alaskan, but this is the first time the pilot updated us constantly and I loved it."
Cons: "Better planning on Reagan and Seatac airports with their air traffic control."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "I love being able to text while in the air (really reduces my stress when I travel for business and my family is back home). Crew was nice and boarding was easy."
Cons: "2 biscoff foe a 5 hour flight is a pretty light snack. It would have been nice if there was one more item."

Pros: "Crew and actual flight were good."
Cons: "When booking the flight, the only seats that showed as available were premium seats that I had to pay $150 extra for each way. Upon boarding I saw that there were many, many seats available so I spent that money for nothing."

Pros: "Arrived early, good service, comfortable"

Pros: "Return (2nd leg) was excellent even thought the plane was older and smaller. 1 leg of the flight was just okay. The departure was delayed for half an hour to wait for a late stewardist. Pool performance."

Pros: "The boarding went super quick and the crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Not many snack choices"

Cons: "Alaska is horrible with scheduling and delayed the flight by 3 hours and then an additional hour for system failure"

Pros: "Being on time, then early! A clean plane, and boarding from the rear first. An airline has finally caught a clue on boarding the rear of the plane and window seats first! Hello!"

Pros: "Entertainment, modern aircraft"
Cons: "Rude and uninterested flight crew, undisclosed bulkhead mid aircraft"

Pros: "Crew at check in very helpful"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing to say"

Cons: "Everything went smooth, from check-in to landing."

Cons: "Chargers didn't work on either flight"

Pros: "The in flight crew work hard in providing frequent services"
Cons: "Entertainment—most movies are a few years old."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing. Alaska is by far my favorite airline! Virgin is my second favorite. They are now joined. Perfect!"

Pros: "quick boarding process"
Cons: "good options for entertainment"

Cons: "I wasn't able to fly Alaska Airlines due to storm in Washington DC. My first flight American Airlines from Charlotte to Washington DC was cancelled. The second flight Alaska Airlines from Washington DC to Portland was delayed, but I never flew. I got a direct flight from American Airlines from Charlotte to Portland instead."

Pros: "The food was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Didn't realize the seat I selected didn't recline because it was in front of the exit row. I sat straight up for 5 hours and 10 minutes. I wish I would have known this at the time of booking. That was extremely uncomfortable. When I asked the crew about it, they said "yup sorry year seat doesn't recline because it's near an exit row." No apologies, no concern, no trying to find an alternate solution. I couldn't figure out how to work the Wi-Fi and so I asked a crew member and she was less concerned about trying to help me figure it out and was more concerned about trying to get me to rent an iPad."

Pros: "Direct flight from DCA to LAX"
Cons: "No easy way to watch movies on long flight, delayed departure and arrival."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and supportive in serving us all."

Pros: "George Yoo"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Flight arrived in time to make connecting flight easy tomake."
Cons: "Sat for nearly an hour upon boarding while "problems with caterer" were worked out. It is already a long time to sit in a restricted space. Please don't make it even longer. Also, socializing by attendants at rear of aircraft made any chance of napping impossible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed 10 hours due to mechanical problems. They said they could not rebook passengers on alt flights because all flights were booked. Yet when I went on kayak they were still selling seats on these fflghts. This was unconscionable before a long five hour flight to make a 70 year old women sit in an airport with 290 others when their were other options or were the airlines just overselling again so they could boot people off the plane?"

Pros: "Personal people"
Cons: "I couldn't put my seat back"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "FA's phoned it in."

Cons: "Someone was helping me lead me to wrong terminal, I missed my flight!"

Pros: "I appreciated that the crew came down the aisle several times for beverage and food service, on a long flight. Too many airlines now are "one and done"!"
Cons: "Because you now charge for baggage, people try to carry on too much, and there's no room by the time the last twenty rows board. Your staff needs to ask them to limit it to one bag starting with the first group to board."

Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "Tv for the kids"

Cons: "Beverage pacing was odd -- 2 beverage services in quick succession and then not much for a while. I still can't get the entertainment app to work, which means I'm on my own for entertainment."

Pros: "Scheduling, Boarding crew were all good."
Cons: "sitting for 5 hrs squished in like sardines was not fun. there was plenty of leg room, but shoulder room was minimal and uncomfortable for that duration of flight"

Pros: "Gate crew and flight attendants made travelling with two cats as easy as it could possibly be. Reasonable fees for in-cabin pets. Great price for the seats, too."

Pros: "Bathroom not working, but don't use the front toilet was the announcement."

Pros: "I liked the overall experience of flying with Alaska Airlines, flight attendants and crew were very friendly."
Cons: "Food and entertainment was not very good."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and had great personality. They anticipated any needs we had."

Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."

Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."

Pros: "The plane was nice"
Cons: "I’m still sitting in Minneapolis so I would have liked to be at my destination. And I had to pay for the overnight accommodations."

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wish the seat was more comfortable. Landing was jittery and bumpy."

Pros: "The flight attendant from IAD to MSP called Bernadette was wonderful!"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Super comfortable seats. Lots of movie options."
Cons: "Food was not very good"

Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."

Pros: "There was an agent named Christopher working at the Delta terminal in San Diego, and he was tremendous to work with."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."

Pros: "More room and comfort than American Airlines."

Pros: "Comfortable, but expensive flight from Seattle to Gdansk via Amsterdam. The airport is large with many shops to search for chocolate."
Cons: "The 3-hour layover was long. 2 would be nicer."

Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."

Cons: "Tv"

Cons: "I never received anything about my booking. I went the airport Wednesday morning not knowing if I’d actually fly out. I only had on my Kayak app a trip itinerary. Thankfully I did. In Atlanta I added my Skymiles # to my trip. Upon arrival in Mexico I rec’d a push from Delta about my trip with my Record Locator. Flying home was to depart at 8am. When I rec’d my boarding pass it stated 8:55am. While waiting at my gate Delta sent me a text at 7:30am that my flight would be leaving at 8am. That confused me. Needless to say I was suppose to arrive CVG at 3:49pm, but instead was booked on a flight departing Atlanta at 4:30pm. Plans at home had to changed for Friday evening as I was not arriving at mid-afternoon. Needless to say I’ll probably not book thru Kayak anymore."

Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."

Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."

Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"

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: "Delayed two hours"

Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"

Pros: "I was able to watch TV on my way to my destination."
Cons: "I upgraded for the cabin Round trip and when I flew back from my destination I didn't have the same good experience. I did not have the TV flying back. The plane was too rocky one minute going smooth then out of no where it into high speed. The plane was shaky."

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Cons: "There delay"

Cons: "seats on this Airbus configuration were horrible for first class. 6 across and the same 32" spacing as the economy section. with middle seat empty was first class. YIKES"

Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Cons: "My email read check into Aeromexico I could not check in the Aeromexico using my phone I was dropped off at the Aeromexico terminal after standing in line for half an hour I find I was in the wrong terminal I needed to be in a different terminal with Delta because Aeromexico even on my reservation read that does not fly to Tampa. I had to find a shuttle to another terminal the shuttlesare not marked it was very confusing"

Pros: "Great (seemed like unusually friendly and helpful) crew. Plenty of carry on baggage room."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Plane hot initially and couldn't be cooled down until airborne."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "While the seating is narrow, the seats are well appointed and seem roomier than they are. Each seat has 110V and usb ports and a back of the seat movie and entertainment screen. Very good for a short flight to Atlanta"
Cons: "The 0.012 oz packet of tiny tiny pretzles"

Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."

Pros: ".....delta in Washington was great changed my flight so I didn't have delay !!!!!! Will always use"

Pros: "Kind crew."

Pros: "Seat cramped"

Cons: "It took only 20 minutes to fly there but 20 minutes waiting to get off the ground in 25 minutes to circle around Philadelphia before landing. Not good when they reduce the size of the seats to 17 inches most people shoulders are wider than that. No food service no snack no drink and just snarky empl"

Pros: "It was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Fly in time"

Cons: "maintenance. We left late due to a maintenance issue. Once the flight attendant notification alarm went off for 15 minutes."

Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."

Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."

Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."

Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"

Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."

Pros: "Plane and fact that pilot was able to make up lost time"
Cons: "Plane had plenty of room for carry on bags. No need for valet bag check."

Cons: "Going to aircraft by bus in the cold with long wait for bus departure"

Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"

Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("

Pros: "Big comfortable plane."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food at all."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rickity old plane. Needs updates badly. No drink service options. Cash only bar? Hello, this is the 21st century calling the 20th... You can have your plane and payment methods beck."

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."

Cons: "Food was not good at all."

Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."

Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost connection"

Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."

Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."

Pros: "The Resolution team assisted me initially when I arrived to correct an issue from my online attempt. The agent printed bag checks for me to my final destination and told me how to get needed boarding pass for the final stage. How wonderful to have pleasant and professional personal attention."

Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."

Pros: "Good crew, everything efficient with no problems for getting from point A to point B."
Cons: "I really am starting to hate the CRJ-700. I dislike being packed into one with 50 of my closest friends I never knew."

Cons: "I was trying to check two bags, and I get three free bags. My one bag was my wife's bike in a case and it as 60 pounds and the other was a suitcase that was only 20. They made us take stuff out of the bike case and move it to the suitcase to get it below 50 pounds. Ridiculously nitpicky. It's the same overall weight..."

Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."

Cons: "Checkin"

Pros: "that connecting flight was close to arrival gate"
Cons: "flight AA5280 was canceled. Your confirmation number is MRCITQ. Operated by PSA Airlines AA5280 was originally scheduled to leave from O'Hare International (ORD) to Dayton (DAY) on Tue Aug 16 2016 at 9:45 pm."

Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."

Pros: "The flight was short, only 1.35 hours."
Cons: "To start, the boarding process is a chaos. First class and executive platinums should board first, but of course the gate agent was completely clueless and rude, even to an ExPlat. Althiugh the flight is only 1.35 hours, I was surprised that flight attendants didn't even make an effort to offer a drink service. No turbulence or anything, just seems they were lazy."

Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was great. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful and the pilot gave timely and useful announcements. The coffee and free cookies were quite good as well (surprisingly, especially for the coffee)."
Cons: "As a frequent United flyer, I was a bit taken aback to see that AA charges for their movie streaming to your personal device."

Pros: "Cancelled due to weather. Still stuck in DC. American's communication is AWFUL!"

Cons: "This plane and especially its seats are the worst. If your taller than 5'5" I recommend to look for other options."

Pros: "The flight was only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Gate 35x at National just doesn't work. A woman fell on the ice trying to get to the shuttle bus, on which we sat for a long time before leaving for the plane. After a chaotic boarding, the plane sat around as the flight became late, and the pilots gave no explanation for the delay or hint of when we might take off."

Pros: "Pilot kept us in the know given congestion at LGA. And kept us safe because of expected turbulence."
Cons: "I feel like the airline should know LGA is backed up since they flight mostly the same schedule daily. Flight AA2174 should be pushed to a later time so passengers don't have to sit on the tarmac."

Cons: "Airline never assigned me a seat. They just told me what sea to sit in when I was boarding. I was concerned I would be bumped since when checking the airline said it could not assign a seat."

Cons: "Long delay at departing airport due to no flight crew"

Pros: "From start to finish the flight faced problems: unscheduled stop for refueling, change in planes for mechanical problems, emergency medical intervention, and more. Yet at every stage the flight crew and gate staff did an outstanding job communicating and seeking to alleviate passenger woes. With delays, we missed connections, and yet AA worked wonderfully to find alternatives. At the end of the day, we arrived at our destination, and even our luggage made the trip successfully! Wonderful courtesy, adaptability, and determination to serve. Thank you."

Pros: "It was a short hop over to New York, so that's the only positive thing I can say."
Cons: "The plane was tiny, seats uncomfortable. Had to be bused to the plane, only 1 bus provided and had to be packed like sardines. Overall, a terrible experience."

Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"

Pros: "It got me home, and around the time I was originally supposed to arrive"
Cons: "It left late, without any explanation as to why. It's pretty pathetic that I was thankful that AA got me home at all, considering they almost left me stranded in the wrong city, and the only reason I wasn't was no thanks to AA and thanks to Kayak."

Pros: "Uneventful, reasonably timely, not overcrowded, cheerful and friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long, needless wait in the cold, crowded, standing room only shuttle bus"

Pros: "Surprised that my flight was so painless! Boarding process was extremely easy (then again, it always is from Kansas City). Staff for professional and kind, the flight was not completely full so it didn't take long to to board and the flight landed on time."

Pros: "crew was nice."
Cons: "plane was small and had no room for carry on flight was late."

Pros: "Your sirvey is not well designed; there was no food or entertainment on the flight yet we must give it a rating?"

Cons: "Two hours late"

Cons: "We waited nearly TWO hours in line to check in our unaccompanied minors."

Cons: "Delayed multiple times"

Pros: "Filthy was not full so for a tall guy I was offered good seats for the plane size"

Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."

Cons: "Never made it to destination"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"

Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"

Pros: "no problems on flight. complimentary wine."
Cons: "seats bit tight for international flight. why do I have to pay more for more leg room"

Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."

Pros: "I lie the variety of movies available."
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Flight landed earlier than scheduled."

Cons: "United check-in at IAD was chaotic. Worst process I have ever seen."

Cons: "There's not enough room. The guy beside me is hanging over his seat and I'm trying to sleep and our bodies are touching because he's so big."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was loud man behind me (laughed INCREDIBLY loud) The crew knew him so they did not say anything to him."

Pros: "I booked the basic economy and I was pleased that I had a row to myself. I was nervous it was going to be a tight flight because of the smaller plane. Also I enjoyed the onboard movies available on our personal devices."

Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees were very high for an extra bag. Service on the flight was overall ok. Boarding was slow and a little annoying. Gate agents were rude"

Pros: "The crew from gate to landing was very helpful and met all my required needs. I didn't have to worry if my questions would be answered or if there was space for my luggage as they attended to all the things I could have wondered about."
Cons: "Newer planes are more compact than I would like, and the aisles are very narrow. When the carts move up and down the aisles, they have a tendency to bump people even if the flight attendants are being extremely careful."

Cons: "Seat was inoperable and frozen in upright position in business class cabin. Last to order entree had only 2 of 7 choices remaining and fish was extremely unappetizing presentation."

Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"

Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."

Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."

Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."

Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."

Pros: "All fine, except delay"

Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "I paid for the internet that never worked. I couldn't watch a movie or TV either. It was t just me, a lot of people around me had the same issue."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."

Cons: "Small plane"

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"

Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"

Cons: "Old plane and was not clean."

Pros: "The flight crew got us there quickly and safely."
Cons: "Food was sub par but that is about what you can expect from any US carrier, the crew was disorganized and let people move around before taking off making people finding their seats occupied on arrival. Service members were curt and woke us up for some kind of morning snack they call breakfast when my guest and I were clearly asleep and not interested. I really wish this flight was operated by Lufthansa..."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crew did not get all passengers drink"

Pros: "The flight itself was great. Good movies, professional crew."
Cons: "The whole seating process was a nightmare. They didn't assign seats and when I tried to call first they said wait until 24 hours in advance or pay $100 THEN when I tried to check in 24 hours in advance they wouldn't assign seats bc the first leg was operated by United. They then said United couldn't assign seats at check in - only at the gate AND THEN the said they couldn't assign seats for our second leg because it was operated by Luftansa. It was ridiculous added stress on our honeymoon and my husbands first cross Atlantic trip. Made me never want to fly Luftansa/United transatlantic again (and I have been a milageplus card holder so that's saying something)"

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Easy flight, no issues."
Cons: "Little more leg room. Eye mask would have been nice."

Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus and still was too uncomfortable to sleep."

Pros: "During sleeping somebody took the pillow and the blanket from the adjacent seat. Unfortunately with my amenity kit and the Bose headphone case. The kit was found later by the personnel, the case not. Not reccomemded to sleep during flight at this airline."

Pros: "Great flight"

Cons: "A la ahora de irnos hubo muchos contratiempo por el tiempo pero por el vuelo después que nos fuimos fue excelente"

Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."

Cons: "Touch screen broken on TV. I couldn't watch the films I wanted to watch."

Pros: "See statement above."

Pros: "Food was pretty tasty and entertainment worked well."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude and seemed annoyed a passenger would even think of asking for assistance."

Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Nothing, pilot was polite but also very frustrated"
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled. After 6 hour delay. Second flight arrived to Dayton and sat on Tarmac for 1.5 hours. Sweltering heat, idiots working the gate, full plane. United owes these poor folks a lot. My 80 year old mother will never fly again due to this trip"
