Flights to Ecuador have now resumed.
Special 'travel corridors' exist for tourists visiting the Galapagos. Foreigners wishing to enter the islands must present a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19, taken 96 hours prior to the date of departure to Ecuador. On arrival in Ecuador, tourists may be requested to take another PCR test, at their own expense. Tourists must also present a return flight and a safe passage document (‘salvoconducto’) issued by the Ministry of Tourism to be exempt from doing 14 days of self-isolation on the islands. The tour operators or hotels are responsible for arranging this safe passage document on behalf of tourists, given that visitors are required to have previous contracted travel and accommodation arrangements. The Galapagos Transit Control Card, will need to be filled out online at least 24 hours before the flight. On arrival in Ecuador you will be required to fill in a Health Status Declaration, including a local address.

Cons: "The agent at check-in was a little cranky, the lack of food (even for purchase) is disappointing, can't seem to spare more than the little cup of soda for beverages. No power in seats, so why use the wifi on battery? Ultimately fine though, just no amenities. We got where we were going on time."
Cons: "No beverages were available to even purchase!"
Cons: "The plane was completely packed despite the COVID pandemic. A stranger sat next to me on the plane (distance of about 6 inches, not 6 feet). What social distancing? And yet they conveniently said no food/drink beverage for safety reasons. Good way for the airline to save a few bucks. Other airlines (like JetBlue) block out adjacent sears and give snacks in individual bags but this... I flew several times since the pandemic began and this was by far the worst. What a joke of an airline. Never flying them again"

Pros: "I like to staff and flight."
Cons: "My legs are too long for the seats"
Cons: "On both segments of the trip American changed my seat which I. I’d not realize until boarding. Way to late to protest. You pay for preferred seating but then get bumped to a lousy seat with no explanation. Likely because I was a single traveler and an American employee wanted my seat. Better not happen on the return flight"
Cons: "It is clearly the policy or American Airlines to discriminate against passengers based on their class of flight"

Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair!

Luggage arriving late from Denver, customer service didn't have a clue were the luggage was. As we were leaving to come back next day the luggage, we saw it in a carrousel, and pick it up. Republic flight from New Orleans it's not worth it the business class, very poor service ."
Cons: "Not very helpful in rebooking"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."

Pros: "Boarded on time and was easy"

Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Purchasing extra leg room"
Pros: "Economy plus seating in an exit row was maybe the best airline seating I've had outside of first-class. The on board entertainment was better than average."
Cons: "The flight crew, save the one male attendant couldn't possibly seem and more disconnected and uninterested in passenger comfort or safety. The eldest attendant was simply rude and seemed annoyed at having to do her job. The other young woman couldn't seem to keep the cart from bashing into seatbacks or herself in the aisle and the flight was NOT rough."
Cons: "Plane was cold! But better than hot!"
Pros: "Boarding quickly"
Cons: "No PED was available didn’t have anything for entertainment if you weren’t buying it seems every thing available for 3 hour flight and flight was scheduled for 2 hours and 55 minutes No snacks made available came thru once had a small bag of pretzels cup of coffee and never came back"

Pros: "The crew was polite. The flight was comfortable."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "We loved the small terminal at Sky Harbor, with the cute little discounted parking lot, no more that 100 feet away. We loved the location of Avis Rental Car, directly across from the baggage pick-up exit doors, at Regional Southwest. Our flights were all on-time, and the crew was extremely professional."
Cons: "No need for reclining seats. These cause a problem with leg room, for the person behind the "recliner.""
Pros: "Uneventful, on time! Knees will never be the same, but small price to pay - or so I'm led to believe by your marketing. Also paid 10 bucks for internet- seems excessive."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "No delays on take off ,"
Cons: "Seating no leg room if your a tall person"
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane clean and comfortable"
Cons: "It's about time airlines offer a better snack without paying for it! The sweet wafer is not enough neither are the tiny bags of pretzels!"
Pros: "The meal that was served was exceptionally good."
Cons: "Is it really that much more expansive to provide complementary movies - personally I never watch the movies but many passengers do - I did not notice anyone who purchased this service."
Pros: "There was room for my carry on on both flights."
Cons: "The bathroom on the plane smelled of urine. The only snack offered on both flights was a stroopwaffle. Seat didn't relive at all."
Cons: "The seats are Uncomfortable. The food no longer exists. They give you two ounces of drink"
Cons: "After booking my flight months in advance United change are seating and separated us. Spent hours on the phone with no explanation and no assistance. Didn't even help me upgrade when I was willing to pay for it. The worst of it all was the nonsense that their customer service kept spewing. Brushed and straight up lied to. Will do everything possible to never fly united again"
Pros: "It was coach so you get what you pay for"
Pros: "My flight was delayed 30+ minutes going out from Ohare. But overall the flight was good & service was fine. Thanks!"

Cons: "They would not honor their refund policy with proper documentation submitted four weeks in advance."
Pros: "The crew is really nice. They are considerate and helpful as if they know you will be bored through out the flight."
Cons: "You get no food. One advise for the company, do not serve alcohol on 6 AM flights. Just serve some eggs or bread. Try to compete with international airlines like emirates and not greyhound buses. The entertainment system requires you to download the app on your phone and you need to buy the internet."
Pros: "Uneventful is good now a days when flying. Plane was comfortable an very smooth flying!!"
Cons: "Our flight attendant was all business an no smiles. I asked for ice an never received."
Pros: "Lost flight other one took longer not happy"
Cons: "Lost flight other took too long"
Pros: "Had the ability to connect in my phone to the app for free in-flight entertainment. Other United flights will have the TV in the headrest but charge you for wifi or to watch TV or movies."
Cons: "Our flight got delayed 3 hours (which I understand happens) but they boarded group 1 individually, group 2 individually, then combined groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line. I was in group 3 but was stuck behind people in other groups. Also, they ran out of room in the overhead storage which is frustrating when you're flight is already pushed out to a later time - the last thing I want to do at 1:00 am is wait for my luggage because it had to be checked. People brought on carry-on suitcases along with 1 personal item which were huge tote bags or backpacks. There's got to be a way to monitor overhead storage for items like that - if it's the size of a carry-on, they should need to check their suitcase. The snack was lack-luster. I went on a 5-hour flight to Seattle a few months ago and one cookie with no protein is hardly filling for that long of a flight."
Cons: "The amount of luggage people bring as carry ons."
Cons: "Rude staff,"
Pros: "Very nice and smooth flight, lasted even less time"
Cons: "The lady at check in couldn't give me and my boyfriend seats next to each other, but thankfully there was a very nice lady who agreed to exchange seats in the plane."
Cons: "Did not like the commuter ride from newark to syracuse. Probably would not use united again because of that. Had to get on a bus that took us across the street to board this little, very noisy plane. Even the flight to newark was uncomfortable. Seats are too close no legroom and my back was killing me due to uncomfortable small seats. United is not for me. Sorry."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled in Newark for an unknown reason. Luggage was then delayed because nobody from united cared to change it onto the new flight I was assigned to."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant and ask are you comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was great"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "That all the passengers were allowed a carry on bag, the flt was full and they made a lot of people check their bags, not fare!!! This airlines breaks their people into 5 different classes, I'm not sure what or how they do it, I was a 5, I boarded last, people climbing over each other, use to be back to front, after 1st class, of course. It was ridiculous."
Cons: "Departure was changed twice until I would miss my connecting flight. I was sent to another airlines with not much help. Stayed in the airport an additional five hours."
Cons: "I booked my flight over 5 weeks ago, and was given an aisle seat. When I checked in online, my seat had been changed to a middle seat. I tried to change my seat online, and was only given the option of 1 other middle seat. I have to have an aisle seat because of arthritis, and I need to walk around during flight. There were long lines at the desk at the gate, and I couldn't stand there to get my seat changed. Now I'm dealing with lots of leg pain as a result. I NEVER would have booked this flight if I'd known I would'nt have an aisle seat. IT IS "BAIT AND SWITCH"!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "signed up for a window seat was assigned a middle"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Dinner was served within 1 hr of takeoff and breakfast 1-2 hrs of landing. Nothing served inbetween. There was about 10-11 hrs of nothing. No drinks or snacks served. Very poor service in compairison to other international flights I have taken."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after waiting for 3 hours. The next flight they put me on was the next day on another airline. They put us up in a shity hotel and the meal vouchers only worked at the airport where everything was closed by then or hotel which had no restaurant. United offered a $50 compensation which is a kick in the teeth compared to the inconvenience I was put trough. If I don't get properly compensated from United for that horrible experience I will never fly them again and tell everyone I know to never fly United."
Pros: "On my first flight from SNA plane and crew excellent. Due t storm in Houston we got on and off plane 3x until tower thought it was a go. Captain was excellent explained everything I am a scared flyer but he was so encouraging and funny he made it a goo experience"
Cons: "Flights back from Fort Meyers planes seemed smaller and no room in seats Entrainment 0 can't fix stars Food 0!didnt eat"
Pros: "The crew -- friendly and informative."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great direct flight, served coffee & snack as soon as reached cruising, offered OJ & water later. Even offered second cup of coffee. Flight arrived at the gate 15 min. early, the baggage was at baggage carrosel fast"
Cons: "We flew united on our way to forida and we had a layover our first flight got delayed so we missed our second flight. Then on our way back they tried doing the same thing. The lady at the counter thank god ran down to delta and got us a flight to atlanta then to st louis. I think united just doesnt want to pay for a hotel room when they are the ones that kept delaying it. It was a nightmare and i dont plan on flying united again."
Cons: "There is extreme turbulence and no one came over the PA system for sure that it was just turbulence. I was afraid"
Pros: "Easy,smooth ride, thank you"
Pros: "Cost Ease of booking"
Cons: "delays (weather based )"
Pros: "The flight was short(ish)."
Cons: "The price of flight not in line with service, comfort, anything. Full flight, small seat, some flight attendants in crabby mood, luggage hassle in Houston, didn't get it first, thought they didn't have it. Had to go to United customer service. Ended up being somekind of "jam". Took forever to get luggage. And it cost me 25 bucks extra. Shameful. Poor experience."
Pros: "Boarding on time and easy Seats super comfy Tv was great"
Cons: "Staff not attentive or friendly Not many food options"
Pros: "Updates were poor as to wether or not I would make my connecting flight. When I asked if there were back up options and was told there were not any. After an hour delay I was called up and given a flight number that could be an option."
Cons: "The delays that I experienced were incredibly long. The major problem with this was the lack of comunication that I received from the airline. I could not figure out how to turn off the tv."
Pros: "The food ? What's food?"
Cons: "That's only give wather!... Is ridiculous"
Pros: "Security staff was terrific , the Crew was exceptional . Overall satisfied ..."
Cons: "It was a short flight but still very tight . I couldn't take a longer flight on a 737 . Uncomfortable ."
