Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "On time departure and smooth landing"
Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"
Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."
Cons: "All of the plane extras (e.g. WiFi, food service, etc.) were out of commission for some reason. Without WiFi, I couldn’t watch anything on my own device, and I would’ve had to pay for a headset that is compatible with your screens."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The only problem with the food was it was all canceled because of rough weather."
Cons: "I’m would be much better if I can sit by my husband."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Missed my Easter dinner plans... :("
Pros: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, despite multiple hoardings and time delays."
Cons: "Plane was originally set to leave at 11:30 am, but was delayed until 3:00 pm for equipment. We boarded the plane at 3:00, the door was closed, and 30 minutes of waiting at the gate, where told to deplane, and the flight would leave at 5:06. There was another flight to San Diego, also delayed for hou"
Pros: "It was a nice flight. No troubles"
Pros: "Very professional crew."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 1 and a half hours getting out of the gate because of a malfunctioning fuel gauge"

Pros: "The website delivered everything I needed."
Cons: "More discounts for frequent users."
Pros: "Crew trying their best to keep passengers happy. Arrival on time."
Cons: "Incredibly bad, mostly unhealthy, overprocessed food. Glad I brought my own. Very narrow seats. No opportunity to upgrade to economy plus. One day you will have casualties from minimizing further and further the seating space until even normal- sized people collapse from lack of blood circulation. (On my outbound flight from Atlanta to D' dorf an oversized seat neighbor literally flowed partly into my seat, making matters worse.) A major concern: stewardesses support the general fashion of darkening the cabin in the interest of movie watchers and general quiet. What about my right to daylight, especially during a day flight from D' dorf to Atlanta? It's helpful against jetlag. 11 hours in a darkened pipe followed by arrival at night time are unhealthy. The film program is not intetesting enough to justify this decision."
Cons: "Missed waiting 5 hours for next flight"
Pros: "The great job the crew preformed."
Cons: "older plane - seats were not comfortable."
Cons: "seats were broken, armrest broken"

Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."

Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"

Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"
Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"

Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."

When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."

Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."

Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."

Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Cons: "Completely none sense to change the time of départure (30 min earlier) with just a simple email 24h before and w/o sending a text on mobile phone."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew professional, food and drinks good and kept coming. I learnt Dutch on the in-flight entertainment system. I was in a good mood talking to another passenger about his new luggage system. This mood was kept and not taken away on the flight."
Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Claiming that the plane was completely full (which it wasn't), They forced just about everyone to check there carry ons. When we got on board, there was plenty of overhead space. Supposedly, we should've have been allowed a carryon and a personal item."
Cons: "better assistance for people on wheelchairs in the airport."
Pros: "Crew was OK ,seat tight"
Cons: "More cushion and a little wider seat !"
Pros: "Most of the crew was helpful, however, I arranged a pick Up at Heathrow to guide me to my connectg flight. the flight attendant advised me to speak to the male concierge when exiting. He then insisted: No, there is no one coming. When I stepped out the pick up person showed up anyhow. ??"
Cons: "Like I said better staff communication in regards to my special situation/need. Also I was surprised I had to pay for the water I had on the flight as the attendant who offered it didn’t mention it was for purchase when they asked me if I wanted bottled water."
Cons: "On time departure"
Pros: "Seats were ok. Crew was friendly, attentive and communicative."
Cons: "Not much in terms of entertainment"
Pros: "Yes but when you offer a blanket deliver a blanket :)"
Cons: "When you offer a blanket or to heat up the food follow through :)"
Cons: "About all"
Pros: "Cabin crew."
Cons: "Security at Heathrow."
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, and disorganized."
Cons: "The food service had problems. When they got to our row they didn't have any more of our dinners left and without asking I was given a meal from first class with an entree I did not care for. My wife seated next to me gave me half of her entree. Then the snack towards the end of the flight I was given a burrito type thing without asking what flavor I wanted. All in all the food was poor and the attention to the passenger was poor also."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Movie system frequently had to be rebooted."
Pros: "Staff on ground and on plane was super friendly. Thanks for the pleasant flight!"
Cons: "It would be great if at least cold beverages were included in the ticket price - would make the flight experience more welcoming."
Pros: "Comfort but only since I paid extra to upgrade to business class. World Traveler Plus is mediocre at best."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic."
Pros: "Professional pilots. Good flight."
Cons: "Unprofessional and rude flight attendant. Not enough food available on an 11 hours flight."
Cons: "waiting for boarding waiting for the take off waiting for the meal tired staff broken laguagge at the and no promised phone call from the laguagge department"
Pros: "Comfortable seats ,nice crew"
Cons: "The food was not that good, the beef was like a brick and the service Poor , I asked for water twice, by the time it arrived I already had finished, same for bread I had to ask for bread, was not offer, if I didn’t asked for the main course in the lunch portion on the flight they were taking away the tray after the salad and fruit, I did not like the salad, I tried mine and my Husbands that was salt restricted and they were Awful. I travelled business class, the flight was packed."
Pros: "Premium Economy seats LHR-SAN. Comfortable, decent food, nice variety of entertainment. This flight is the best way to get from San Diego to Europe."
Cons: "The TV portion of the entertainment system didn't work, but there were enough movies to keep me occupied for the 11 hours of the flight."
Cons: "NO beverages, not even water, except for purchase"
Pros: "Crew was nice. First time ever that a stewardess removed my vegiterian tray early while others are eating so I can move in my seat"
Cons: "I was frustrated that I could not choose my seat on my on line check in. I thought at that point one can choose their seat. This happened to me on my way previous flight on BA and nothing was fixed on the app"
Pros: "The service was great, plane was clean, entertainment was great, food was OK but not great."
Cons: "In economy the seat spacing was very limited. It was worse than many US domestic flights. If the seat in front was reclined, the TV screen was about 12-15 inches from your face."
Pros: "Crew is super hospitable and nice"
Cons: "They lost my luggage after I asked when I checked it in LA and when I boarded in SD"
Pros: "The crew apologized for the late departure"
Cons: "We were left waiting for the technical issue to be fixe for more than an hour"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite, food was ok, decent entertainment system. Plane was new and clean."
Cons: "Seat pitch was small and not a lot of legroom. When passenger in front of your folds his seat, the seat back is mere inches from your face. Cabin announcements were too loud in headphones."
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "food was worse than typical airline"
Pros: "Short, yet pleasant flight. Great crew!"
Cons: "Honestly, I can't complain. Small issues with preferred seat."
Cons: "The service wasn't very good. We had to walk to the galley for drinks mid-flight."
Pros: "Crew very accommodating and friendly. Also the ground crew were very friendly."
Cons: "Seat spacing much too cramped."
Pros: "If I had another option for a direct flight to London, I'd take that over traveling with BA."
Cons: "They ran out of the meat option for my meal. Understandable but I couldn't eat the veg option either. The flight attendant literally said to me that they had no other food on board - a complete lie of course which I didn't appreciate given the $1500 ticket I paid for the flight."
Pros: "Crew is very nice"
Cons: "Seats are pretty small"
Pros: "The food was decent and the tv's offered a number of movies and options to pass the time this was my first time flying with BA and I would fly with you again. Much improved from AA and United"
Cons: "The crew was fine, but not overly friendly. I flew BA to and from my destination. The other flight, the plane was nicer/newer possibly."
Cons: "Rude staff, messy service, lack of information and communication"
Pros: "The food was good. They asked for people with carry on to check their baggage at the gate. We were the only ones that did and they rewarded us with priority boarding. Nice touch."
Cons: "Non stop London to San Diego, 10.5 hr flight. Like most airlines the fit was so tight that by the end of the flight I never want to fly again."
Pros: "Food and service were first class even in economy seating. British Airways is always my favorite airlines, consistently superior in most areas. The food and beverage on the 24hr flight was very good."
Cons: "The Boeing 747-400 on leg from London to San Diego had the older infotainment system, compared to my first flight. It worked well, however the screen was small, and the in flight flight tracker was dated. Most BA flights have the newer system."
Pros: "Boarding at LHR was so quick. This was my first 747 experience and the boarding process for so many people took less time than other flights I've had with smaller crowds. The entertainment was great, flight staff was very cheery, and there was food being served nearly every two hours..."
Cons: "Seat backs are too thin. You feel every time the person behind you goes into the pocket."
Cons: "Absolutely no complimentary food and beverage on the international flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants are so very tentative and the pilot made numerous announcements. Great planes excellent service"
Pros: "The treatment and luxury of being a business/first class passenger. I've been told I was (free) upgraded from economi class to business class. Actually there was no business class,- it was first class. Because after arriving and leaving the aircraft, I walked (like everyone) through the First class,-and it looked exactly like the "business class" I was sitting. I had all the luxury and service a first class passenger had,- from the champagne and all other amazing beverages to the high end luxury dining and of course the amazing service of the flight attendants. I would always choose BA again if Ihave the choice. Even if it's still "just" economy class. BA is just an airline that treats all their passengers as first class member. Thank you BA for this experience. Keep it up and please, never change."
Pros: "Courteous service, and good selection of new movies"
Cons: "Turbulence over the mountains, and steward didn't serve food anymore"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Very poor organisation. Lack of communication. Our rights were not explained to us and no information material was made available. No reason was given for the cancellation. The flight was rescheduled to the morning at 7am and then again rescheduled at noon. Still to be seen..."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, except the entertainment. e."
Cons: "WiFi was a problem. All four flights were delayed. Movie sound was terrible."
Pros: "The food was half decent, and the entertainment program was good"
Cons: "First flight was late causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then they not only forget my bags in London, but then give my seat to someone else on the second flight. Instead of being apologetic in any way, they just ship me to a crappy, tiny seat at the back of the plane. Arrive in Sydney to find they had forgotten to put my bags on the flight, and, despite there being the possibility for them to be aware of this in Singapore, they didn't even have to decency to tell me this had occurred. Despite other customers being told that their bags were missing. All in all, not happy with my experience, and to be honest, I'm dreading my return flight with them"
Pros: "It was professional ,efficient ,enough service for the 10 hour flight. I would like to see more choices for the music selection."
Cons: "Flights over 10 hours should be on a more comfortable plane with electrical or USB ports. I had an 8 hr flight from jfk to Rome (Finnair/American) was on a very comfortable plane with better entertainment and charging capabilities. however, the 11 hr flight from London to SAN was more cramped, no charging, fewer entertainment selections and all around uncomfortable. I expect more from BA on such long flights."
Pros: "Meals and customer service"
Cons: "Seats. Absolutely no legroom or body room in economy seats. If you are making larger planes, you expect a more comfortable ride. Not the case at all here. In fact in the upright position, you seem captivated"
Pros: "Staff. Ample seat recline."
Cons: "No usb outlets. Dated entertainment. No indiv air flow control. Screw was loose and a metal wire was wrapped around but you couldnn't see it. So, when I reached to turn the broken dial for air the metal wire pierced my finger."
Pros: "Food was good, flight attendants on horribly delayed flight still gave good service."
Cons: "Delayed 5.5 hrs, on the way out online check-in wasn't working & got booted out of previously reserved seats into middle of middle 4. Attendants seemed to ignore middle seats. On flight out, entertainment system was down for first 4 hours of 10.5 hour flight. Long international flight & only 1 drink service besides with meal. Prepare against dehydration by bringing your own water. I don't think I will be flying British Airways again in future."
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "Overall long flight and connection from UK-Chicago-San Diego was dreadful without good food, entertainment"
Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "We found the chart listing gate where we should go. We went there. Told the last listed flight was late so stayed there. With no announcement the gate board listed a different flight. We asked and was told gate was changed. What a surprise, Went to the info board and had to RUN to our new gate. Barely made it on time. This is awful communication."
Pros: "Leaving that airplane 8 hours after expected."
Cons: "The fact that I was delayed twice, given false information, had to wait to board because a flight attendant was late for her shift and then had to run from terminal to terminal to find my flight on my own because no representative could help me or show up."
Pros: "Price was reasonable"
Pros: "Friendly crew, and my wife and I were lucky to have empty seats next to us."
Cons: "Old plane, no food, no in-seat entertainment, drinks only for purchase. This is what air travel was like in the 1980s. A nice throwback flight!"
Pros: "Flight kept being pushed back multiple times. left about 3 hrs late. Then after boarding and waiting to take off, the pilot tells us a light came on the "dash" and he has to have maintenance come to check it. That takes another 30 plus minutes. Not a good start to the morning."
Cons: "Never finding out what happened to the our original plane that was supposed to have left in the morning."
Cons: "I have flown this airline many times and never once have we ever taken off on time. We left 2 and a half hours late and the people that work for them are grumps all the time. Never flying them again."

Pros: "Love the entertainment system, watched a movie and was able to charge my phone too"
Cons: "Gate the boarding process but that's about it"
Pros: "Flight crew was great and made the flight that more memoriable ."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."

Cons: "My seat was not clean"
Pros: "plane had lots of leg room- movies were free"

When I checked in online 24 hours to flight, it became an American Airlines lflight, and my seat was gone, and when I checked at the gate, I had NO SEAT! I was the last person to board the flight- no seat choice!! Absolute bullshit when I pay for ticket and pick seat 3 weeks prior- on June 6. Didn't even know if I was going to get on flight until last minute."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."
Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Cons: "Despite paying 5 months in advance, couldn't check in online or reserve seats without paying extra. AA customer service told me there were no more "complimentary " seats!! Very tight legroom in cabin."
Cons: "Took my bag for no reason, I flew there with it."
Cons: "just like above + I had previously requested a vegan meal that had been confirmed and I was presented a "dish" of pasta loaded with cheese and was told that that was vegan ... 9 hours flight with no food The sound outlet on my seat was broken and, again, no entertainment for the entire flight"

Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."

Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."
Pros: "The staff were professional about the situation. Flight attendants were nice, courteous and the complimentary drinks were good. It was a good flight despite all the changes... but who likes their flight changed anyway."
Cons: "flight was delayed. standing there and they said our plane was there but didn't know what gate. our gate was a35 then changed to a28 but then delayed 1 hour, then 2 hours. So overall, it was switching back and forth then changed the time from 1830 to now a 2000 departure."
Pros: "Fast shuttle to our hotel"
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Flight was canceled... apparently they won't be able to get me home until 24 hours later than I was scheduled to get there. Standing in line 5 hours later still waiting for vouchers. My bags already went to san diego. Customer service has been confrontational. Terrible all the way around."
Pros: "The crew at least made an attempt to be friendly"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable the flight was delayed, and most importantly I booked my flight for san Francisco (sfo) and got sent to san Diego and had to book a $130 bus ticket and spend 14 hours on a bus."

Cons: "An extra 1 inch between seats would make the difference in allowing passengers to open a small laptop and position it so they can simultaneously type and see the screen at a viewable angle."
Pros: "My mother is disabled and was assigned wheelchair assistance and does not speak English very very hopeful does not have a cell phone because she is disable and does not know how to use a cell phone I was calling the one 800 number for united airlines they gave me a phone number for the terminal where she was delayed and I was just trying to check to see if my mother was aware of what was going on with the delay I just need to know if my mother was OK to give her comfort but unfortunately the number they gave me was not working I was calling over 30 rings with nobody answering for over three hours O'Hare airport was very hopeless for united airlines it's a shame that that is their head quarters i'm pretty sure I will never ever use United Airline again in my life after the terrifying experience I had waiting over four hours from my mother besides the four hour flight I was very terrified until my mother was in my arms I never ever want to experience that again or I hopefully nobody ever that uses your United airline will ever experience that"

Pros: "Unhappy first class passengers! Flight attendant decided it was better to have the first class passengers have restroom privileges and announce to the whole plane that they would have to wait until the service cart finished its path down the aisle."
Cons: "Flying has become a product of what are you willing to pay for! Baggage costs, seat costs, food costs. It's always changing I guess that's good!"

Pros: "outstanding service from the flight crew - makes me very happy to fly United comfortable seating and in-flight options clean, efficient gate made for a pleasant boarding experience"
Cons: "folks in economy that stuffed their items in business class which made getting my items extraordinarily difficult. Flight attendants should be monitoring this as it defeats the purpose of flying exclusively on United and premier status, which includes the benefit of getting off of the plane quickly upon arrival. whoever thought the ratio of eggs to oatmeal meals is completely off base. At least 7 more passengers would have preferred eggs, but were told there were no more to be offered. intercom is way too loud, esp. if you have earbuds in - we can hear you through the earbuds, esp. when plugged into the console when we'rer watching movies"
Pros: "I got to have a whole can of juice not just a small glass, yes, thank you."
Pros: "I was short."
Cons: "Plane was late arriving and had to chance plans at final destination for pick up."

Was supposed to originally be there by 8:30am but had to use my PTO since I missed the whole day of work."

Pros: "The flight attendant was fabulous."
Cons: "The seats are too small for me but that's my fault for being very overweight."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff were polite. Flight was totally uneventful (just how we like them)."
Cons: "We were all required to check our carry-on bags as we boarded as there was apparently no more space in the plane, though once on board, there was space in the overhead storage - I think they did it because it was expedient for them to have us do so. I didn't eat any food so can't really comment on it (gave it "okay" but don't rely on that). The screen for my seat didn't work - no big deal on a short flight but there you go."
Cons: "No snacks, only beverages and wifi wasn't included in ticket price."

Pros: "Everything. This flight had more space and staff were excellent. No delays and left on time."

Pros: "Comfort. Cabin crew polite and friendly."
Cons: "Late leaving Denver"
Pros: "Getting to San Diego."
Cons: "The huge lines and almost missed my flight due to Homeland Security."
Cons: "Flight diverted to LAX then stuck on tarmac for 2.5 hours waiting for decision. Then waited for bus to terminal. Then waited 45 minutes for baggage to unload. Then put on a charter bus to San Diego. When arrived at SAN had to wait 45 min for a cab because United didn't let the cab companies know that 250 people would be arriving at 2:30AM. So instead of arriving at 9PM we arrived in the middle of the night with horrible service all around."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it was freezing. The TV monitors kept turning on and off and it was a night flight with the lights off, so it kept waking me up."
Cons: "I lost my opportunity to attend a work conference due to detours, mechanical issues, and poor planning. I also lost my $1000 grant that I would have received through the conference. All.i.have is a hurting back, empty stomach, and money lost on a terrible experience. Will not use United anytime soon. I wish I could change my return flight to another carrier"
Cons: "Flight never happened."
