Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Assigned seating and if my flight would actually leave on time"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Better refreshments needed"
Cons: "I was supposed to go to a wedding in Chicago, and leave on thursday. They cancelled my thursday flight and did not get me to Chicago until Saturday, so I missed the wedding. They strung the whole thing out by scheduling me on new flights, only to cancel those later. Total mess!"
Pros: "We made it safe to the airport"
Cons: "I was unable to hear boarding being announced (IF it was announced). On the first leg the plane was nearly full when we got on due to passengers from a previous flight remaining on the plane. There were no snacks or drinks on ANY flights I’ve Flown in the passed 2 weeks (ALL Southwest flights)."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process. I like that Southwest allowed me to change flight at not extra charge"
Cons: "It was a little delayed but no biggies"
Cons: "Airplane dirty"
Cons: "We sat at the gate fully boarded with doors closed for 20 minutes. No idea why."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to use the WiFi in my flight. It worked last time but was not even available on this flight it seemed."
Cons: "NO WIFI"
Pros: "Great crew, great service."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Plane left about 45 minutes late"
Cons: "Crew had no personality. Contrived politeness."
Pros: "crew was great."
Cons: "instead of just a glass of drink, give the can."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and professional."
Cons: "The flight was almost two hours delayed, boarding was a free for all and the plane was like an overcrowded, dirty bus with wings."
Pros: "Good leg room. Not full flight."
Pros: "Not the friendliest airline but great value for the money!"
Pros: "Southwest excelled in all areas."
Pros: "Wheelchair was waiting for me at all 3 airports. All staff was very kind and helpful - assistants, stewardesses, even the pilot came out to wheel me on the plane (8 of us had wheelchairs)"
Pros: "Once again, a Southwest flight crew made the discomfort of flying a little less onerous by being friendly and funny. People were actually laughing out loud. The seats are so small you’re packed in like sardines, the food offering is a lousy bag of pretzels. But the flight crew? They were truly pros."
Cons: "See above — it’s just misery to fly in tiny seats."
Pros: "Being able to change tickets and onlly pay the difference"
Cons: "plane normally pretty full and extra tight when heavier person next to me"
Pros: "Up and down in an hour flat. Left exactly on time and landed a few minutes early"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Very cold!"
Cons: "Long delay in Baltimore"
Cons: "I don’t understand why when the airline has delayed a flight, why they do t let connecting passengers off first or call the gates for connecting passengers to let them know passengers are on their way. Southwest flight attendants were condescending. I nearly missed my connection."
Pros: "Plane was only half full"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Short trip, crew was great as always. People are dumb and discourteous - I don't know how the flight crews deal with the general public with a smile on their face all the time. Crew announced that flight was completely full and last group boarding should take any available seat. No one did, everyone kept walking to the back, then had to turn around. We left because because people cannot follow simple instructions."
Pros: "Ease"
Pros: "The kind staff who quickly helped me rebook my flight after I missed my original departure."
Cons: "The unforeseen mechanical problems that delayed the flight."
Pros: "Plane was clean, on time, and although full (doesn't everyone want to fly Southwest?), I still had ample room to enjoy my flight. Pilot warned of some turbulence, but it was so light, it was not disruptive or scary. And just love those peanuts! We've taken four SW flights in the span of a week, and all were on time and very pleasant flights. Good on you, Southwest!"
Cons: "Free wine and hot towels would be nice but, really, I can fly without them."
Pros: "We were on time!"
Cons: "Spacing between seats. Not roomy enough for those of us that are six footers plus."
Pros: "Flight attendant's spiel was comedic gold."
Pros: "Flight attendants are always nice."
Cons: "I was in a group of 4 with boarding positions A2 through A5. We couldn't all get exit row, which is important to my husband who is over 6' tall, in spite of this which I find totally obnoxious. This was due to a woman who boarded outside of her group (she was C!), who boarded with her friend who had A1, and saved a seat for her daughter. The Southwest system is completely unfair unless two things happen: 1) people are not allowed to board outside their group and 2) IMPORTANTLY NO RESERVING seats. We have noticed that the trend seems to be pay for one person in a party to have early bird, and then reserve a seat. This is shitty."
Pros: "Boarding and exiting went fine. Other than a rude passenger, the flight attendants were very courteous, even to her."
Pros: "I liked it we arrived early and the crew was very friendly and funny."
Cons: "The flight was entirely full and so is a little challenging finding a seat as the nearly Last Passenger in line but the crew was helpful in getting everybody's bags stowed and helping us find seats."
Pros: "The Crew went above and beyond as usual."
Pros: "Crew members are friendly and do their best."
Cons: "Packed in like cattle as the flight was full."
Pros: "Nothing. Canceled"
Cons: "Surprised yow didnt know that flight was canceled"
Pros: "Flight needed to wait on a few people. Got off OK and landed well. Luggage was taken off at Houston."
Cons: "Luggage was removed in Houston (our layover). So we didn't have the bags in Indy. Was provided a kit to help. And bags came in around 1:30a to our hotel. Thankful! So great of SW to get them to us so quickly. We had a wedding to attend and will be able to wear our wedding clothes!"
Cons: "SW lost my luggage."
Pros: "Love flying on Southwest Airlines, they are pleasant, friendly and very safety oriented. I look forward to flying with them again soon."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were narrower than our departing flight. Flight was delayed at hour. Which normally not a big deal but when arriving at 2 am it makes for a long night. Then there was a longer than average delay for checked bags to offload due to staff shortages. Again. Makes for a long night. Baggage carrousel started spinning at 2:25."
Pros: "SWA is awesome! Courteous flight crew. Pop quiz to the people in the exit row before departure, made them think (what do you do if you look out your window and see fire?). Got their attention and reminded them of the seriousness of them accepting the responsibility of sitting there."
Cons: "Construction at the Boston airport caused a delay on the return flight, not able to handle all the flights with one of the runways torn up. Southwest shifted the departure and still made it a good flight with an almost on time arrival in Houston."
Pros: "The crew were great. The seat could always be bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Examine the seats in the cabin it seems to be loose from the mounting to the floor."
Pros: "crew was great."
Cons: "flight was 3 hours late with lame excuse. tray tables disgusting. felt unclean. cookies tasted gross. pa system not working. live flight not working either"
Cons: "Not only was our flight delayed two + hours because the crew was delayed (which happens), but then when we landed at midnight, there wasn't a gate open for us. We had to wait another 30 minutes just for a gate. What gives, JetBlue? Did you forget we were coming?"
Pros: "flights on the DCA-BOS route are the 2x2 planes, so no bad seats. Seats are also nice amount of space compared to some airlines."
Cons: "Not really the airline's fault, but there was bad weather on our route so we sat on the plane for 3 hours before we even took off. So for a 1.5 hr flight we were on the plane for 5+ hours."
Pros: "Everyone was boarded early so we departed early. Quick flight with pleasant flight attendants and nice snacks."
Cons: "The desk agent in Boston could be a little more pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed. Ground crew was rude. Pilot wasn’t good. Landing was rough and ears hurt."
Pros: "The service and the food"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was accommodating and friendly-as I would expect."
Cons: "Service above and beyond the expected."
Cons: "No three hour delay on the flight world have been better"
Pros: "Fast boarding, kind crew, smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Loved the leg room but the seat cushions are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Amazing Crew !!"
Pros: "so easy. thank you for having Starbucks in the DCA and BOS terminals. got text msgs about delays and all smooth!"
Pros: "Flight on time, smooth birding/disembarkment"
Cons: "I boarded the flight with a carry-on and one personal item. As usual I personally place the carry-on in an overhead bin. After the flight landed and I went to retrieve my carry-on, it was gone! The flight was full, so I checked with the flight attendants if my bag somehow got gate-checked or it was moved. They didn't know and they said maybe it went into the checked bags. So I wait at the baggage claim and out comes my carry on bag without any tags. Strange! My carry on didn't have anything valuable, but a bit of communication or some form of record would have made this odd incident a little less nerve-wracking. 1. Please communicate with the passenger if their bags get transferred to the checked bags 2. Please communicate with the crew which bags get moved from the cabin to the checked luggage 3. Please label the bags if they get moved around--there was no gate-checked tags or any stickers to communicate with the checked luggage folks."
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The ample legroom and comfortable cushiony seats."
Cons: "The delay in the flight."
Pros: "Boarded early, plenty of leg room, delicious in-flight free beverages & snacks, arrived at DCA 27 min early. My wife had a panic attack and the two stewardesses took great care of her and calmed her down. Despite my wife's condition, the stewardesses took great care of the rest of the passengers, too. We've flown JetBlue to Puerto Rico and loved the service. My adult son is a fan of JetBlue."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The fly-fi worked very well."
Cons: "The "tv" didn't work - One of the things I like about Jet Blue"
Cons: "It was great. I slept and did not partake in any hospitality."
Pros: "The pilot made up time after taking off late, the coffe and popcorn was good"
Cons: "The cabin crew seemed to do nothing but try and sell you stuff from blankets, credit cards, lunch boxes they spent a lot of the flight just trying to get you to buy stuff. When we landed we landed so fast the pilot had to brake very hard that life jackets came out of the pockets under the seats."
Pros: "Roomy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight delayed. Other than that everything was good, friendly crew, TV program on board, drinks and snacks, plus a carry-on item allowed, will use JetBlue more in the future ."
Pros: "Flight was late but everything else was great!"
Cons: "Delayed almost an hour"
Pros: "Loved the live TV and spacious room between seats."
Cons: "I didn’t like the weather delay but that’s not JetBlue’s fault."
Cons: "4hr delay"
Pros: "The app on my phone allowed me to do nearly everything but place my luggage in the back"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Non chaotic boarding, efforts by gate agents to gate check carryon bags to ensure there would be enough space for those bags."
Pros: "Usual great Jet Blue experience."
Cons: "Crew took too long before they told us reason for delay of flight from DCA to CHS"
Pros: "Everyone was great, and the communication through the weather delay was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment: headphone jack was tricky to connect and (due to the weather) the stations didn't work."
Cons: "I got a kind late notice about flight delayed when already was on my way to airport in a cab So we wait 4 hours at airport very disappointed"
Pros: "Slight delay getting out of Boston, but we had received an email that there are runway repairs. Flight was smooth with pleasant service."
Pros: "Plane on time - snacks were fine"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "The service and timeliness was excellent"
Cons: "The machines to print the luggage tags were not working so we had to stand in a long line - after I had checked in and paid the fees the night before to avoid that."
Pros: "Joseph, the agent at the desk at FLL"
Cons: "I missed my original flight despite being at the airport. The agent I spoke to at my original airport (PBI) was awful."
Cons: "Baggage was 25 dollars but airline checking same size bags for free at the gate?????"
Pros: "Everything smooth, and clean."
Pros: "On time take off, nice flight attendants, on time arrival."
Cons: "The entertainment system stopped working about 10 minutes before take off and never came back up."
Pros: "Smooth flight ."
Cons: "good flight."
Cons: "We were told there were mechanical problems with the plane coming from another location so our flight was delayed but we didn’t get notification until last minute. We were charged for every bag headed back home when we were only charged for 1 bags leaving out. In flight TVs barely worked and the plane wasn’t that clean since they didn’t have much time to clean the due to the delay."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early both ways."
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were met. The crew was professional and corteous."
Cons: "There is no WiFi, directTV on the flight. There is “no satellite coverage “ during the flight. Even though it’s sate and it comes from space, there’s no coverage. Come on, there has to be a copyright issue or something."
Pros: "Efficient crew charge"
Cons: "Charge for earphones"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Got to my destination ahead of schedule. Great work."
Pros: "I checked my carry-on bag. The crew let us know that the best view in DC would be on the left side, so we switched seats so that the children could see from that side."
Cons: "Lack of leg room."
Pros: "JetBlue kept us well informed on flight status."
Cons: "Flight was 3.5hours late. The plane was delayed earlier in the day on its way to Boston where we were waiting."
Pros: "I was traveling from Charelston to DC the weekend before Irma hit with a return flight Sunday. The counter agent was great at finding a return flight change no problem. No fee. Off I went, and off Irma went, I had to change my return travel plans and unfortunatelyJetblue didn't have s direct flight to my new destination, the counter agent in DC went thru possible options and worked with main ticketing to refund my flight for future use, noting it saved me money to rebook online at a cheaper fare, what airline does that theses days. Very pleased and grateful Jetblue made my travel during a tense weather weekend the least of my worries, they were Rock Stars!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancel the flight. And they say they trying to help ppl to evacuate Florida"
Pros: "The staff were sweet and knowledgeable."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew smiled and helped me with things I need patiently. The pilot also greeted us on the way out."
Cons: "Weren't a lot of healthier snack choices other than the colorful sweet potato chips. I tried Skeex but it wasn't good. I suggest peanuts/nuts, raisins or something else that are better for our health. The chocolate chip cookie is a keeper though! Thank you."
Pros: "Landed exactly on time!"
Cons: "TV's didn't work at all. Hot tea tasted terrible, were you using Boston Harbor water?"
Pros: "Old aircraft showing its age."
Pros: "Fast easy flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and smooth flight"
Cons: "No entertainment option was avail except WiFi (T-Mobile) which wasn’t free"
Cons: "90 minute delay"
Pros: "all good"
Cons: "unsure"
Pros: "NOTHING."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "The check in counter personnel was VERY UNHELPFUL. I was running late to previous Delta flight baggage delay. The counter person would not let me check in even though I still had good 45 mins before take off. AND THE PLANE WAS DELAYED BY 40 MINUTES ANYWAY! I never made the flight, had to take train."
Cons: "The entire Delta customer service was a nightmare. Delayed flights, literally lying supervisor who escalated a dispute, absurdly poor service. ASSISTING A PASSENGER WITH A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER DELTA FLIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE WAS DELAYED IS "NOT A GUARANTEED SERVICE". Seriously, it is basic courtesy!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and quick."
Cons: "the number of kids......not too fond. :/"
Cons: "Excellent"
Cons: "If there could have been some sort of services to take travelers to their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Everything was great."
Pros: "I always appreciate in-flight television even on short flights."
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Everything was great everyone was fantastic. F"
Pros: "Not sure why this flight was delayed inbound. But it made the departure late by over 30 minutes."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Headrest was too short and there’s no seat back screen. More communication from the cockpit at the end would have been nice. Announcements were very hard to hear over the background plane noise."
Cons: "Never told why we were delayed by more than 90 minutes"
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: "Everyone was friendly and got us to our destination"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No food, no outlets, a terrible delayed not explained to passengers."
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Unexplained delays, lack of transfer services (there was no separate connections security screening; passengers were required, after a redeye flight and customs, to switch floors and stand in long lines with general security. Also, no beverages of any kind were offered."
Pros: "The flight was good, Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "I asked one of the crew members to help me to get a better seat as I was very tired and wanted to sleep better during the flight and he didnt pay attention to me. I realized there were emthy seats available during the flight"
Cons: "The airline booked us on two flights from SLC to BWI. Unfortunately, our seats on our original connection were released so when we arrived at our gate our only option was to split up and take middle seats - even though we had paid over $100 ea. for upgrades. Delta offered nothing for this. One of the flight attendants was in a terrible mood - she was cold and rude and would not even look at passengers - which her fellow crewmates noticed and tried to compensate for."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Seat was very cramped and I want able to be comfortable at all. I couldn't even sit back I the seat!"
Cons: "JFK was depressing but not Delta’s problem."
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "Snacks & beverages on a 1 hour flight. Very nice crew"
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Kyle was our flight attendant. He was great. Attentive the whole trip and served us water and snacks."
Pros: "I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars..."
Pros: "I am 6’3” and have difficulty with leg room on planes. Staff help me out by moving my son and I to Comfort seating row."
Pros: "Where the flight attendants on my AeroMexico portion were authentically compassionate, the flight attendants for delta were superficial. The flight attendant,while serving us drinks, started saying what great passengers we were but her flight from Dallas the day before was definitely a feeling the effects of the full moon. This was our first interaction with a flight attendant. She had no basis for saying we were great and as we didn't have a relationship other than ordering drinks she had no basis for complaining about her Dallas to us. She would leave it to us that she was being put upon by the customers that she was getting paid to serve. Where the Aeromexico flight attendant genuinely enjoyed serving her customers."
Cons: "They forced everyone in the third zone to check our hand carry and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Fast and very friendly staff."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible staff"
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Pros: "very little"
Cons: "Could they make sears smaller? The plane was really old too."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The economy plus wasn't nearly as nice as any other airlines. It gave the least amount of extra leg room and the only other amenity they gave was a toothbrush. Even United economy plus is bigger. Plus if you want to change anything you have to pay include just to try and go stand by on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Had a chance to download the entertainment app during layover, so could take advantage of movies available on second flight. Crew still good; gate attendants friendly; snacks/drinks readily available."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and roomy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "everything on schedule; courteous staff and great pilots"
Cons: "everything was very ordinary so cannot complain"
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, good selection of snacks, excellent seat and leg room."
Cons: "Lavatory was unusually smelly no charging port"
Pros: "Delta is definitely the jewel of commercial airlines. I understand making money depends on how many bodies you can transport at one time. But as a large man the seat size and leg room could be improved. I unfortunately cant afford first class to remedy this problem."
Pros: "Getting on board was smooth and efficient. Service was friendly on flight. Arrived on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "My flight from ATL to BWI was horrible. It was not a Delta plane. Possibly borrowed from SpiritAirlines, which is an airline I will never fly again even if offered a free flight. That's how strongly I feel about their planes and service. I was seated in a 2across row where the seats were small and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. I'll grant you I am a big girl at 6' 250 however the first leg of my flight from FLL to ATL which WAS on a Delta plane, was fine. I did not feel smashed into the seat. For the money, I feel like I am due more than being locked into the seat unable to move more than 1/2 inch for an entire flight. Thankfully the flight was under 2 hours."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Pros: "Nothing to speak of. Nothing exceptional from any other airline - basic"
Cons: "Our carry-on luggage was taken away from us because the gate agent decided it looked too big. A family of four with luggage larger than ours was allowed to carry theirs on. Our luggage was then sent down to the baggage carousel at Baltimore. We took carry-on to avoid this. I don't think we will fly Delta again."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Eh"
Cons: "No delay. Seats were horribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "AA seats are very small and narrow. The reclining part was uncomfortable. I prefer legroom and comfort at Delta Airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great from checking in to the flight attendant and cockpit."
Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"
Cons: "AA provided me NO assistance when my flight was cancelled and I had to make arrangements on my own, which caused me to incur in extra expending."
Pros: "Seats were not too cramped."
Cons: "Wifi that actually worked."
Cons: "Smoke in cabin, has to return to Houston. Then they never transferred our luggage as promised."
Cons: "I had little leg room"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The crew, the flight attendant was very rude"
Pros: "Much better the typical American cattle class. Qantas actually served real food. Cabin was spacious."
Cons: "The WiFi to work."
Cons: "Delayed more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Their CRJ was very comfortable. More comfortable and modern than what I’ve seen on a lot of Skywest/delta connection flights. Crew was great"
Cons: "that my flight got cancelled and wasn't going out until Saturday and I would have been less than 24 hrs in Boston"
Pros: "Was able to sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Baggage lost."
Pros: "They let me sleep"
Cons: "Not enough food options"
Pros: "The free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."
Pros: "Crew was nice and kept us updated."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 minutes early and we still deboarded 20 minutes LATE. Wifi on flight is ten dollars instead of being free and they use plastic cups for the drinks which I am sure is not recycled."
Pros: "I landed safely"
Pros: "Late..."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "American is always delayed, every single flight."
Pros: "Entertainment good"
Cons: "Legroom bad"
Pros: "Nothing, they’re awful."
Cons: "American Airlines failed to provide the service we paid for: a flight that arrived home in the morning, so that we could get to work. We had to use vacation days we did not have to spare."
Pros: "The flight to Washington was fine. It was the flight back that I have issues with."
Cons: "My issue with flying back American is that...I didn't. They boarded us on the plane, moved down the tarmac, and then checked to see that we had a brake problem. They took our plane out of service (which I get, I would want brakes before takeoff), but then they never updated us on our status, until I physically went to the counter to ask an hour later. This is when they informed me that the flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 9pm flight (Mind you, this is 12:30p and I have a 2 year old with me). Luckily, I was able to book JetBlue and get home earlier (8:00pm)"
Pros: "Shabby Cramped"
Cons: "Cramped Uncomfortable"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Pros: "Bought a ticket from Alaska Air, but got farmed out to American, If I wanted to fly in American, I would have bought a ticket from them. This also made checking in a lot more confusing..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Cons: "Worse customer service ever inside and outside the plane. Try he daughter was traveling with a 3 year old and they didn't want to change their seats together are u kidding me my daughter had to be asking in the plane but they did it for other people."
Cons: "Worse experience ever."
Pros: "Flight and flight crew were wonderful. No problems at all."
Cons: "Had to be rebooked, but was not told it was as a stand-by. I think this information is important to tell a customer. Was only told the next flight time out. Then when I received my bag back (was placed under plane upon boarding which was no problem), my handle was broken."
Pros: "The American Airlines crew was very friendly but completely clueless about the details of the delay, our connection and the connecting airport."
Cons: "The American Airlines staff assured us that if we got stuck in DC we would receive hotel vouchers. Not only did we not receive hotel vouchers but we were denied access to our rescheduled flight the next day and forced to rent a car to get us from DC to Massachusetts in time for our event. This "misunderstanding" cost us 2 days of our trip and an additional $500 all together. I have never been more disappointed by an airline in all my years of travel! If we'd been told the truth from the beginning we would of rescheduled the flight for the following day from our original destination and saved ourselves 2 headaches and a ton of money."
Pros: "I liked nothing about the flight or services of the staff."
Cons: "My flight was scheduled hours before I was scheduled. I checked in very early because I was coming in from another flight. At check-in the flight was still indicated as on-time. When I arrived shortly to the gate it indicated that the flight had been cancelled. I was assigned to the flight before which was delayed. We were not served beverages because we were told that the ride www short. I observed the flight attendant talking abruptly to other passengers When we arrived in DC, we were told that another plane was parked at our gate. We sat on the runway for almost an hour. I was told when I arrived that my bag had been accidently sent to Charlotte. Unbelievable!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "I received a call about two hours before my flight that it was canceled and that I was rescheduled for a day later. I understand that these things happen, but I was given no refund or offer for compensation."
Cons: "Excellent experience"
Cons: "There should have been food for purchase."
Cons: "Able to choose own seats"
Cons: "Wifi only worked for a half hour, we paid extra to bring carry on bag, and the're was no space in the plane, had to send it in the cargo."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice crew. Newer clean plane."
Cons: "No screens provided. You have to use your phone with the United app and that’s assuming you have headphones and they gave me ear buds but they don’t work for iPhones...so yeah."
Pros: "more space on this flight somehow? still cramped but not as bad as others."
Cons: "There was a very strong smell of urine in the back of the plane. Unfortunately, I was in the last row (38F). They (IAH) should offer TSA precheck after customs in the "connecting flights" area."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Wasn't expecting to have to run all the entertainment through my mobile device. I'd that's what you're gonna do, we're should get free wi-fi"
Cons: "They skipped me for drinks"
Pros: "Well we boarded and left early..."
Cons: "No free entertainment, kept us on the plane for 30 minutes before getting in to the gate, and left our luggage on a later flight."
Pros: "Everything was fine and normal except the crew."
Cons: "My flight was a later one in the evening but all the crew showed was that they were ready to go home."
Cons: "Zero entertainment. Too cramped"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No assistance at all for handicap person, try to ask for help and was told grab a wheelchair and have your family push you or wait till 530 which my flight would be boardiat that time."
Cons: "Another passenger was extremely rude to me. Causing me to have to move seats mid flight. Crew did not try to resolve the issue with the man behind me and put me in a worse seat. Horrible."
Cons: "Boarded the plane later to be asked to switched planes because of mechanical problems with the first one. After boarding the second 2 hour delayed plane my family and I were asked to step off the plane and go to the front desk because they made the mistake to give several people the same seats. It was horrible, and embarrassing. My family, friends and I will definitely won’t be flying eith United."
Cons: "Never made it and had to go yet to another desk because it was a united flight this was the worst i have ever experienced"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Food selection is not very good.."
Cons: "The food options are poor at best and it's really sad that they don't offer anything for free. My ticket wasn't cheap so I can't imagine they're saving me money on my ticket by not offering better food on that long of a flight."
Pros: "They fixed it quickly so I'm over it."
Pros: "The 1st class seats are very comfortable. The food and beverage service was also very good."
Cons: "Carry on luggage space is still pretty limited."
Pros: "Ordered the Protein Box, it was ok.. crew members nice."
Cons: "The Smell on the flight was unacceptable, I was sitting about a couple rows across the middle bathroom, and it smelled horrible, I had never had an experience like this on any other flight, I fly United many times a year, and this had me really uncomfortable for almost 5 hours, since the flight was delayed almost 1.5 hours while we sat onboard the aircraft at the gate, that had me miss dinner plans too in San Francisco as well. I really hope they can fix that, For the good of the passengers, felt like I was going to be nauseous all the time, and I'm really not someone that complains or takes time to review badly."
Pros: "Best united flight I've been on in a very long time!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Got home earlier than planned because I was able to get on an earlier flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."
Cons: "They lost one of our bags"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact I was unable to reschedule my flight due to medical reasons. The ticket I purchased was nonrefundable. I wasn't asking for a refund, I was asking to reschedule due to medical reasons of which I have a letter from my Cardiologist as proof of my condition. I saw my Cardiologist Baxter D. Montgomery, M.D. phone: 713.599.1144 on June 9th and was treated for uncontrolled Blood Pressure. I was advised to reschedule my flight after a follow-up appointment on June 23rd. On June 10th I Called United to reschedule my June 11th flight and was referred to Lowestfare.com at 800.678.0998. I spoke to Albert and explained my situation and was told that I couldn't reschedule. I asked to speak to a manager and spoke to Jane who only confirmed that I couldn't reschedule and nothing could be done. Not allowing customers with verifiable medical excuses to reschedule their flight is a shameful business practice."
Pros: "Airline rebooked me to a more convenient flight at no charge. The service was excellent. Seats were comfortable. The crew were upbeat."
Pros: "Flight was ahead of time and flight crew was great. Flight was relaxing, calm and quiet."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight attendant was really not very nice at all. I felt like I was in trouble for even taking the flight. 'Move your feet. Bags have to be moved under seat. I need to see your seat belts.' She was curt, unfriendly & really made me upset with her bad attitude. Maybe she was having a bad day but I paid good hard earned money for my trip. I at least deserved courteousy & mutual respect."
Pros: "The flight attendant was one of the best ever - super sweet, funny, and accomodating. Also, the pilot nailed a super sweet landing at the end."
Cons: "Everything else. The only redeeming feature of the flight experience was the great flight attendant onboard and the fact that we actually landed at my destination. The coffee maker onboard had been broken for a long time and the airline couldn't be bothered to fix it. If I were the flight crew, I would have gone on strike. No leg (or arm) room on the express jet really punctuated a 34 hour itinerary with a sour note. I could barely walk off the plane in the end. Less comfortable than a cheap rental truck for the same amount of time. I likely won't fly again with United. I'd almost rather walk next time to be completely honest. At least it would be healthier!"
Pros: "I slept"
Cons: "Provide real food. Board back to front, window to aisle"
Cons: "Terrible delays and little to no communication."
Pros: "I actually got bumped from this flight to one that went directly to my final destination of San Fransisco. What a great experience!"
Pros: "Not impressed with United - they are just going down hill in evert aspect"
Cons: "Not impressed with United - they are just going down hill in evert aspect"
Pros: "Flight attendants could not have been nicer or more proactive."
Cons: "Wasted some 45 minutes while UA did paperwork for broken tray table. Really? You could not have done this beforehand?"
Pros: "It's was a very pleasant flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They only had enough to food for the front of the plane , me and everyone in back was left hungry, I have never been so disrespected"
Pros: "It was awesome, I could travel on Gold gropu for a chrap pice! Simply great"
Cons: "I cannot boo up to wifi so was unable to enjoy any entertainment."
Pros: "Uncrowded flight so there were lots of extra seats!"
Cons: "No food or snacks provided for free."
Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Pros: "Same....very possible experience"
Pros: "The only thing I have to say that is positive is that it was relatively easy to change my flight date and time in the United app once my original flight had been cancelled. The app was the only thing that helped me understand what was going on during the constant time and gait changes throughout the day."
Cons: "This airline is terrible. First we were told that the flight would be delayed 1 hour and 40 minutes. We were supposed to leave at 2139 from IAH to PHX. They changed the departure to 2309 due to "mechanical failure" of one of the aircrafts. We were told a plane was coming and that we were just waiting for another flight to Albuquerque that was delayed before us to leave the gait. Long after that first delayed flight left passengers for PHX were delayed 3 more times which ended in the final tenative departure time being 0145. We were told at 0115 to sit tight and wait because the plane was now here but the crew was still in route. Shortly after this promise, the crew showed up and everything seemed to be ready for us to board. Another 30 minutes went by and they announced that the flight was cancelled. United airlines had used up over 4 hours of changing gaits and times only to end up cancelling the entire flight. They did not offer any explanation for this nor were they the least sympathetic to the travelers who have all paid to be on that flight. The customer service was disgraceful and did not offer any type of help on reimbursement, hotel, cabs, or compensation for this."
Pros: "Everything was nice about this flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It was good to be in Houston for a brief moment!!"
Pros: "nothing"
Pros: "Again friendly"
Cons: "Rough flight and technical problems then had to wait another 45 mins on runway to get to the door"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for is I sat beside a man that was 63 and weighed about 275 pounds and I had absolutely no room to sit. Also I couldn't buy any snacks on the plane because it only took cards ."
