Flight was delayed for four hours

Cons: "great flight. On time. Seats are the usual but no divider in the underseat area so my little tiny carryon bag slid in easily"
Cons: "Nothing could have been better"
Pros: "I like the spaciousness in the front for your feet."
Cons: "The flight lasted about 5 hours, but they only offered limited small snack (chip or granola bar) and some drinks. They have sandwich and other real food but it costs around $9.5. Some other airlines provide free full meal even the flight time was only 3 hours."
Pros: "Just another short flight with Alaska. Nothing bad happened"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It’s comfortable"
Cons: "Thank you"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Everything was perfectly fine!"
Pros: "Crew were nice and helpful especially with our special need kid."
Cons: "Maybe Terminal C6 for boarding can be in a more convenient place at Boise Airport."
Pros: "good service good flight"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and the complimentary wine or beer is always appreciated!"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"
Pros: "Movie selection was very good"
Cons: "Gentleman sitting in front of my son was intoxicated and dropped his sauce on the floor which splattered on my son. I told the hostess who helped clean up the mess. The man was too drunk to even realize his own mess. Limit drinks. He bought 3 drinks on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Alaska is my favorite airline."
Cons: "My seat assignments did not transfer to Alaska so I couldn’t get my seat assigned until just before I could board."
Pros: "The crew was great. Seats... not to comfortable."
Pros: "More room in economy than other airlines. Thanks!"
Cons: "Still miss the live tv programs from Virgin America days."
Pros: "Half of the flight was empty. I asked of I could move to the row behind. I was told that was premium seating and I didn’t pay for that. I didn’t appreciate being addressed like that. And did ot really matter when nonoe is sitting there or plenty of other seats."
Cons: "She could have just let me sit there. I should have been told that the seat didn’t recline when the ticket was pirchase."
Cons: "Nothing - most excellent flight!"
Cons: "first class service"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "I was in the last group being boarded (D) - by the time it gets to this group it seems a kind of controlled pandemonium starts and the staff just do their best to herd people in. I have an Alaska Air credit card and one of the selling points was to board earlier, but that has not been the case, as they reserve this for their higher level customers, whatever that means. Also, on this flight, I was very unimpressed with the crew, there was a younger African American man, who was particularly unfriendly, he clearly needs remedial training in customer service. I was disappointed with my experience this time as I have mostly found the crews to be very professional."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived half an hour before schedured"
Cons: "The plane is not clean, seat very small I am not a fat person"
Pros: "Roomy seats and all together comfortable."
Cons: "There wasn't anything we did not like."
Pros: "Angel was amazing ❤️"
Cons: "Best flight ever!!!"
Cons: "I don't normally leave reviews, but words really can't describe the nightmarishness of what should have been a quick four hour flight from San Francisco to Washington. Seats for my wife and I were not where I had reserved. Plane had one working lavatory for a cabin of 150 economy passengers. This resulted in a line that stretched the entirety of the single aisle of the plane for the majority of the flight. The second toilet simply had a piece of paper with sharpie that read "DO NOT USE!!" There were two attendants, one of whom wore a t-shirt and was mostly indistinguishable from the passengers. Didn't get so much as a cup of water until over two hours into the four hour flight. No snack, but that's the least of my complaints really. The attendants spent most of the flight in the back of the plane discussing their new vacation lottery and where they were going to go out drinking when we landed–I know because the rear of the plane was where I ended up, forced to smell the single working toilet, in a seat that didn't recline."
Cons: "The gate was switched at the last hour for no apparent reason to a gate that had a delayed flight. My flight was delayed an hour as we waited for the first flight to depart and then my flight to deplane, get cleaned, load and depart. Not sure why this needed to happen."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and accommodating."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Our seats did not recline - this was a red-eye flight so not seats that do not recline is a problem. The plane was very cold and we kept our jackets on but it was still too cold. The flight attendant said it was warmer in the center of the plane. That's great for them but didn't help us since we were not seated in the middle."
Pros: "Extra help was available. I had checked in online, but didn't have the right printout to put in my id holder. The check-in staff at the airport printed out a label for me."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was very friendly and the seats were very comfortable. Overall very good experience."
Pros: "I had an aisle seat with no one in the middle seat next to me. Very little turbulence over The Rockies. Movie selections poor...same as back in March and it is now July."
Cons: "Flight arrived at 12:05 a.m. rather than 10:45 p.m. flight path went to Charlotte N.C. and then to Dulles..strange. Due to heavy traffic or weather conditions?"
Pros: "Premium seating has more leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system down. WiFi worked intermittently and was very slow. Without the system, food service was nonexistent. I actually asked for food to purchase only to have an attendant walk to ‘check’ and never return. Abysmal."
Pros: "This was my first time flying. Everything was easy to follow, and everyone was so nice. Great first experience."
Cons: "We were on a very small plane, it was a little crammed but no big issues."
Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was cancelled and I was taken to a new airport... and had a 2 hour overlay I wasn't planning on."
Pros: "I was able to try a red wine from Walla Walla for free"
Pros: "Useing both doors for loading and unloading"
Cons: "Getting roasted by the sun because there were no window shades. I was covered in sweat and there wasn't a dry spot left on my shirt. Why aren't there any window shades?"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled so I had to be rerouted to Seattle and then Spokane which delayed my arrival home by more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Friendly and very respectful staff"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Complimentary IPA was very nice."
Cons: "Too cramped on the plane! Taking out 1 row and the arm rest against the window would help."
Cons: "The free movies they offered would never load even when I downloaded the material needed."
Pros: "I liked that there was complimentary wine. I liked that I ended up with window seats on both of my flights with room for my fragile carry on luggage and space next to me. I liked the smooth landings and smooths flights. I liked the pilot pointing out and giving information on the mountain scenery."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "I expect Alaska Air has made a tidy sum from passengers who have to rebook when they depart the gate early."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job with a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "Could not understand male flight attendant at all."
Pros: "The staff is awesome, the ride is always so comfortable"
Cons: "Not flying more often"
Pros: "Glorious leg room! Some airlines have crammed their seats so close together that even someone of average height has their knees jammed into the seat-back in front of them. Not so on Alaskan Air. I had a good 4-5 inches of space between my knees and the seat in front of me. Can't say the same for a lot of other airlines."
Pros: "An employee named Angel at Boise airport was exceptional. He was helpful and light hearted and had a good sense of humor."
Pros: "Airplane was very quiet for a prop plane."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "It is a very nice touch to be offered a complimentary beer. What a treat."
Cons: "The bathroom was not nice. No sink to wash hands seems unreasonable"
Cons: "Snacks should include a gluten free option."

Flight on time, plane is clean, staff is friendly

Delayed departure. Made me have to pay more for parking and had to call out of work.

Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card.

Pros: "Crew was amazing and super professional. The seats were trash. Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better seats in the plane? Is that possible to change? Lol"
Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Informing that the flight would delayed by three hours ahead of time would have been amazing. Instead of extending the delayed time every 45 min making us miss all the other opportunities to fly out"
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Pros: "Entertainment and food and service were great."
Pros: "The crew served things exactly as scheduled. They went out of their way to help passengers individually."
Cons: "The seats are a bit cramped for long international flights."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "The ease of travel that Delta efforts me"
Cons: "Easier status earnings"
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Temperature on the last flight from MSP to RAP was perfect.flight attendant in the back of the plane was OBNOXIOUS!"
Cons: "Most everything it sucked, okay?"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Priority boarding and on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Cons: "The heat on the plane was turned up so high! We were roasting on there! I mentioned it to the flight attendant and he didn't seem to do anything. Everyone was sweating to death."
Pros: "Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Very old plane, 767-300. The bathrooms needed a better and more thorough renovation."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "Everything was smooth, organized, professional! Loved the entertainment options, the direct flight, smooth and comfortable!"
Pros: "In flight Wi-Fi and entertainment is nice and helps pass the time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow, and contributed to a delayed take off to ATL. Flight arrived late and caused a missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Great to have in flight TV"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Normal too squished conditions."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Food above average. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Delta is not the only airline to have planes with the new seat configurations in First Class but they are a big disappointment for tall passengers and couples who enjoy traveling together and cannot even carry on a comfortable conversation on a 15-hour flight."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Cons: "Announcements at the gate could be more clear."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful assisting my last minute boarding needs. Staff was friendly and polite."
Cons: "See above description"
Pros: "Nonstop quick flight"
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"

It was disappointing at AMD airport. Qatar airways staff @AMD airport was working very slow , people @ counter#1 were just taking instead helping economy class passengers to get their boarding pass after first and business class was done getting boarding pass. Also they asked RT PCR report again @ boarding gate - which is really annoying. Qatar airways did not inform regarding changes guide line regarding RT PCR test - they asked me to take RT PCR again @ airport since my one was done before 72 hours as per old guidelines. How much time does it take for Qatar airways to send email regarding updated guidelines?

The flight attendants are on their cell phones, no concern for the customers. We had 4 legs and all 4 were late. What ever happened to timeliness.

My baggage was destroyed

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Wouldn’t know, couldn’t make it and the rebooking for a new flight was a nightmare"
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Cons: "I requested for wheelchair die to my knees problem, but there was no wheelchair for me at Narita and Bangkok."
Pros: "Absolutely atrocious!"
Cons: "Dallas Airport needs to get themselves together. Especially American Airlines through Dallas. I wouldn’t wish the AA Dallas experience on my worst enemy.... yet another fail for AA Dallas."
Pros: "Seat was 9k. Comfortable"
Cons: "Plane late to take off because caterer was late"
Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "Be organized better."
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"
Pros: "many movies"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late and we were not given an update until we started boarding. No alternatives were offered to those with tight connections."
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing was good about this flight."
Cons: "An 8 hour delay to get from DFW to DC, after an 18 hour flight from Sydney. No one knew where the plane was and the delay changed from 3 hours, to 5 hours to finally 8 hours. The former, refitted United Airlines plane, with no frills, no electric outlets, uncomfortable seats, and the joke that is the "recline" position."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Foo"
Cons: "No free water on British Airways"
Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for nearly 5 hours. There was no accommodations for the delay, except for apologies. Very limited snacks were provided, but this huge delay cut into our reservations and vacation in our resort."
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, for the most part friendly crew, with one exception. Flight left right on time and landed with no extra time to taxi. That was a welcomed benefit."
Cons: "No wifi on plane and no individual tv's for movie selections. Also had to pay extra for an aisle seat. Could not select seat at time of purchase. Didn't know if I called Iberia or American to make seat selection. Confusing with two different flight numbers. One from Iberia and one from American. Passengers should be made aware of which airline they are flying on at time of purchase."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."
Pros: "Gate agent at DFW helped with a seat change so my wife and I could sit together--excellent seating in the exit row"
Pros: "Excellent customer service and great inflight meal."
Cons: "Not knowing the cause of the delay."
Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"
Cons: "Small narrow seats"
Pros: "found out upon boarding that my $97 ticket was for a business class seat. Awesome"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Wait 4 hours for a delay flight"
Cons: "It was a mess from start to finish. Ridiculous lines. Ridiculous covid rules. They have us all shoulder to shoulder in tiny waiting areas then suddenly we get on line to board and have to stand six feet apart and then on the plane we are squashed all together anyway. It’s all so stupid. Not having the ability to get a boarding pass from the online app or printed made me have to wait in a line 300 people long to access the kiosk and then half of them were down. Then another line maybe 500 people long just to be allowed up the escalator to where there is another line to go through exuding checks. Nuts!!! My flight was an hour and I spent three hours online getting to it!!!"
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Hire better competent people"
Cons: "FOOD/SNAKS"
Pros: "Decent crew"
Cons: "Seat pitch and comfort. Food utensils VERY flimsy"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and landed on time."
Cons: "The temperature was too cold to get comfortable. I had on a jacket and a blanket, drank hot tea and still managed to get a cold after leaving the plane. Also the food wasn’t good."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Meals, better service, didn't provide me with a wheel chair as I'm pregnant and had my nine months old daughter with me. Very bad experience."
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "The plane was not at its original time"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Luthsansa sent the reminder 30 prior the flight that was a delay on the flight operated by United. I called customer service they do don’t helped and hanged up twice. Finally after waiting for an hour on the airport the same flight was change 4 times more. A manager in United got us in a different flight but we arrived 40 minutes later to Madrid and missed our connection to our other flight. I had to buy a one way expensive tickets because my connection was loss due to the issues with the FL rigth from Charlotte"
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Aircon too cool"
Pros: "They really help out families with young children."
Cons: "Internet wasn't working."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "On Monday, September 3, I traveled from Frankfurt to Washington Dulles on United 933 (this return trip to the US began in Rome on Lufthansa earlier in the afternoon). The plane left on time and we touched down at Dulles on time (a little before 8pm EDT), after flying 8 hours. It was 2am Central Europe time. Experience with customs / passport control at Dulles was the worst I've ever experienced, in any country. In my life I’ve traveled to 40 countries (lived in 7) and flown many different carriers. I stood in line 2 (TWO) hours before finally seeing passport control and quickly getting cleared through. There were no announcements of any kind as we waited, and the airport acted as if it were routine and expected that all these people, some with small children be put through this ordeal. There were about 4 or 5 men or women manning the passport control booths, though capacity for maybe 20 more. Some people while in line downloaded the Mobile Passport and were able to then bypass the line. I had technical problems with my phone and could not. Again, NO communication was made by airport personnel or United; we were on our own. Because of this unexpected delay, I had to catch a taxi to my home in Arlington for a fee of $55. I had planned to catch less expensive transport but was already late for a planned event."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but little leg room."
Cons: "Difficult to find outlets between seats."
Pros: "I felt spoiled with all the service and the ice cream was a special treat. I had never gotten ice cream on an oversea trip. Thanks."
Cons: "I wished that some of the children would have left the window blinds down so we could sleep."
Cons: "Tea - disgusting brown liquid! What about a tea bag, or I gladly would take just a cup of hot water to brew my own. Sandwiches: turkey with cheese or cheese. I am allergic to milk (common allergy), you put milk products everywhere. Vegan is the only option, sadly it is usually some sort of Asian food and I am not Asian, have a gag reflex when I smell Indian food. This was not Air India flight, but smelled like one!!! Will avoid flying with United. Somehow, although I booked on purpose with Brussels Air, without my consent (!!!) I was sold tickets for United operated flight. Please, don't tell me that customers are your #1 priority, because they are NOT!"
Pros: "Poor experience sitting in the seats right in front of emgency exit. I’m not that tall at 5’11’ and sitting straight up I had 1 inch between my knees and seat in front with no ability to recline."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Pros: "My wife and I flew Lufthansa a good deal in the 1970s and 80s, we stopped in the early 90s because I was working with young people and had difficulties provided them with a non-smoking environment. This is the first time I have used Lufthansa since 1992. Based on the flights over and back, I believe we will start using it again."
Cons: "Experience with partner airlines is not as good as with Lufthansa directly. I mean, Austrian and United. They do not provide the same attention to detail, courtesy, or organization, particularly pre boarding and boarding."
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly from start to finish"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "United has a system glitch and we were delayed. I got in around 1 am instead of 11 pm. I decide to order a glass of wine and since they don’t give receipts. I found out i was charged for 2 glasses instead of one. To top it off the co-worker i was traveling with didn’t get charged due to the inconvenience and delay. i travel a lot with United (higher status than him) and would have liked that offer (and not get charged one i didn’t order) being a mileage plus and credit card holder. I did go on line and ask for a credit and they did make it right and give me a credit."
Pros: "Easy check in. Good flight. Good food."
Cons: "Had anightmare will complain to united diect"
Pros: "They staff was friendly and they boarded efficiently."
Cons: "The worst part of the flight was the fact that they have redesigned their planes. They have put the seats even closer together and their new seats are horribly uncomfortable. The seats are made out of a hard molded plastic. There is no give and they don’t form to you back at all. Their comfort level I would rank at a zero! I had thought they may not be bad for a domestic flight as mine was international, however, I also had them for a domestic and they were equally uncomfortable. I will be checking off of United on my next flight as I can not sit in a seat this uncomfortable ever again! Try again United!!! #UnitedSeatsUncomfortable, #HorridSeats,"
Pros: "The crew was very polite at every moment"
Cons: "I really liked everything"
Pros: "I was separated from my 4 year old and 7 year old children as well as our husband. We bought our tickets together but we're out on 4 different rows. I asked flight attendant for help and she was rude. She talked to my husband who was further in the back and came back and told everyone it was ok for my kids to not be with their parents because my husband said it was ok. It was not ok, it was awful. After I started crying someone finally traded spots. But I didn't like that my husband's wishes over Road mine, it was misogynistic and she was a woman, a very condescending women."
Cons: "That our family was separated. That the female flight attendant talked down to me in a misogynistic way"
Pros: "Landing in Dulles"
Cons: "Poor boarding - had to walk steps with luggage, board a bus and wait for 10 mins in hot weather, then had to walk steps to plane with luggage. Plane - no place for cabin baggage and people had stuffed inefficiently their bags; crew did not seem to care Crew - did not care, pointing fingers at people like they do not know English, no sense of pride or commitment in their job; they might as well thrown food at us Food - bad, lucky we were hungry Entertainment screen - not working well Flight was smooth I do not know why Lufthansa partners with United Airlines."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and receptive to needs on the flight."
Cons: "Baggage Claim was a nightmare. I did not receive a baggage ticket when I checked my bag in London. Part of that is my fault. I should have made sure I had one. It took an extra long time to get my bag. Everyone else had left the area from my flight and I approached the counter. The attendant at the counter was rude. She said she couldn't help me unless I had the baggage claim ticket. Which I get that, but it all comes down to how she said it to me. She went over to the carousel and said that my flights bags were still going around and at that time I saw my bag. I said there it is to her and she responds, well you can go get it yourself then. Just completely rude. It all came down to how she responded to me. I was freaking out at the prospect of my bag being lost and she responded as clipped and uncompassionately as possible."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late. The seat was so small, I could not open the tablet (folding tablet in armrest). I am 6" tall and medium built. That tablet can only fit a kid"
Pros: "The movies were good - glad it was free and nice selection"
Cons: "US Pre-clearance in Dublin was ridiculous. I don't know what else to say about it. They were even holding us going down the escalator to the actual screening part. It was just one crazy queue to another. Will definitely make me think about ever going through Dublin again."
Pros: "The cabin crew themselves were great. The pilots offered my child to go see the cabin and everyone on the actual plane was great."
Cons: "The United employees at check in kiosk were very unorganized and unhelpful. I was traveling internationally with a small child and had two pieces of luggage to check in. Normally you just go to the counter once and they do everything including taking your luggage once they weigh it. Instead, I had to go to the self check in kiosk, then back to the counter to weigh my luggage, take off the one luggage from the scale, weigh the second one, then go back to the self check in kiosk, then was told to take off the second luggage as well, then finally went to a second counter where the lady handwritten my luggage tags and then was told to take both pieces of luggage and put them somewhere else altogether with specific directions on where to put them. This is something normally handled by the actual employees. Also, the check in dude yelled at my kid for putting in his name into the check in kiosk while we were waiting on the check in dude to do all those unorganized activities. He claimed it would break the software if my kid were to enter his name. I have told him that no, the software will not break if my child enters in his name."
Pros: "I arrived and my flight was delayed until after 9:30pm and my connecting flight left at 10."
Cons: "Unreliable. Could not get me to my destination in a timely manner. Trip cancelled."
Pros: "The people were very nice! The entertainment although not easy to access was free. snacks were meh but ok. They did what they could to make us comfortable after flight was delayed 2.5 hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours was out of the control of the crew. They did what they could. But the plane was cramped. Not enough space. Everyone was cramped. We missed our connecting flight they put us up in a hotel and booked alternate flights. We had to stand out in the cold waiting for a shuttle to take us to the hotel. The hotel staff said more than once they were not prepared for all of us and getting us from airport to hotel and in rooms was almost another 2 hours. That gave us 3.5 hours to sleep before we started in the next journey. Of 4 hours from take off to landing in our home city. I had to pay for my baggage to go onto another airline."
Pros: "Comfy and we always fly united. Great experience"
Cons: "On the way back we had turbulence but that isn't anyone's fault."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we have to pay for the entertainment what it's that One of flight attendant was getto, saying bad words and unhelpful The guy at the gate unhelpful in other airlines if my family and I have seats away from each other they will help you to be together specially if you have children. In united the guy didn't even bother to look in the system and just told me that that's the only thing he has I asked again and he's told me no because if he help me the flight will be delayed and I laugh and then I said are u serious so I told him that the only thing that he needs to do it's to call the person that has the seat next to my family and ask if he or she can switch seats with me that's all and he just walked away. Very unprofessional most of the staff. I'm a ARMY VETERAN 90% disabled and my wife ssg Ayala active duty the flights that we took on our deployments were smoother than the united airlines flights"
Pros: "Crew and staff were very friendly, helpful and wonderful experience with them. I appreciate the flight leaving and arriving close to scheduled time."
Cons: "No USB charge connectors/power outlets (integral these days on a long international flight). The quality of in seat tv screen is mediocre - best to watch on your own device (but then you need the USB connection that is missing on this flight). The wifi kept on dropping in the plane (both ways). The food is not as good as served on other airlines and they ran out of dishes both ways and we did not have choices and had to eat what was available (which was not good either). Should indicate on seat selection when making purchase if there will be items below seat such as metal boxes that will limit legroom more than for other seats. I was placed at such a seat both ways, and had no legroom for over 8 hrs each way. :/"
Cons: "Was not able to pick my food choice as I was sitting in the back rows even though I paid the same amount for the ticket as the person who sat 20 rows I. Front of me and could pick their prefer food"
Pros: "The first leg of this flight was excellent. Good crew, excellent service, great entertainment centers, comfortable seating, enough room in aisle to allow movement. The second leg of our journey ( From D.C. to Seattle) was another story."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Arrived in DC 15 minutes early. Did not use entertainment so no comment there but overall I had no complaints."
Pros: "The crew members at the gate were friendly and courteous. The plane was clean and pretty new looking. The onboard crew were fine, for all the dealings I had with them. Our bags, which were gate checked, arrived with us and intact."
Cons: "The seats are narrow, and I'm not a wide person. They are crowded in every direction. The airline(s) crowds more people into limited space, then charges people to check baggage, yet they seem surprised and ill-equipped to deal with the lack of space for carryon bags, begging people to gate check before boarding, then scolding the last people who board for bringing their bags to their seats, expecting to find a place in the overhead bins for them. They charge for snacks other than 2 oz. of pretzels. If this is considered part of the hospitality industry, the company gets a failing grade. The individual staff do the best they can."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was having an "off" day - the bin she had closed over my head opened during takeoff (nothing fell out), and later she broke a glass on my tray, sending pieces of glass into my lap. Not damage done (except that I didn't finish my last few bites of lunch!), and everyone has an off day sometimes..."
Pros: "Crew and they kept you well feed"
Cons: "I just could not get comfortable"
Pros: "Found what was expected from the flight. Hats up to the take off that happened on time in a busy airport."
Cons: "Aircraft is tiny and seats are narrow."
Pros: "They held the plane due to delays in customs"
Pros: "Aircraft with old decoration. Could not see a single smile from the crew."
Pros: "Comfortable and enjoyable flight, efficient crew without delays."
Cons: "Poor food - even going for the safe pasta option. Very disappointing & not enjoyable."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled three times. Understanding that can happen, it's the fact that United didn't do anything to make everyone relaxed about having the flight delayed. The crew and pilots were very understanding and relayed reasons for delay while ON the plane. The air on the plane was very cold."
Pros: "Once I was on the flight it was fine except for the food which was decent"
Cons: "On my outbound flight from IAD to BRU my flight was delayed 3.5 hours because the "plane was late to arrive". Seems like this happens a lot on United flights. The staff at the gate of Dulles airport were extremely rude and difficult to deal with, which made it frustrating to try and figure out my connection situation. I missed my connection from Brussels to Paris and had to buy a train ticket for which I was not reimbursed by United. Then, on the way back from Paris, my flight was delayed 2.5 hours for the same reason. At least this time I had a direct flight. This entire experience makes me think twice about flying United again. I live in DC and it would be just as (in)convenient for me to go to BWI instead of Dulles for international flights, where there seems to be more options outside of flying United."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so that I would miss my connecting flight so they change me to a different flight which was been cancelled and I had to get a different flight to Detroit where I landed as far from my departing gate as you could possibly make it with 20 minutes to get there"
Pros: "Loved the snack! The plane was small, so when we hit turbulence my bottom actually left the seat....SO glad I had my seat belt on, fun ride."
Cons: "It was a bit hard to get up the stairs, would like to know ahead of time if I have to go outside & climb ."
Cons: "As a military spouse I was not allowed to check a bag free so I paid the fee. When I boarded I noticed many passengers bringing bags on that we're as big as the one I just paid for. They either checked for free or brought it on and managed to shove it in sideways taking up space that others needed. Some people brought three bags on!!! As a military spouse I feel cheated to have had to pay when others checked in for free at the gate. Not cool United, either let the spouse check in for free or make everyone abide by the so-called rules of one carry on that actually fits into that metal baggage guide. I would like a refund of 50.00 for the baggage fees I paid for this trip."
Pros: "The friendly and comfortable atmosphere!"
Cons: "PHX is a large airport, and my emailed ticket said Brussles Airlines, Terminal 4. First off, Brussles Airlines is not a carrier at PHX, and secondly no one knew that United was their partner. There was no information provided to me to go to United, which was in Terminal 2. After making a phone call to Brussles Airlines, I ended up getting to the check in gate ten minutes after boarding started. It was a lovely rest of the trip after that though! But please include partner information im the email next time!"
