Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was super sweet and helpful."
Cons: "We left the gates an hour late!"

Pros: "Seat comfort. Seats are really roomy."
Cons: "The landing was impactful; we literally hit the ground. Landing could have been smoother. We sat between runways for 15 minutes. Not good."

Pros: "Direct, smooth flight"
Cons: "Not having to pay to assign a seat! Shouldn’t that be INCLUDED in the ticket price. I know, why don’t you charge to use the bathroom? That’s next."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "The air conditioning in this style aircraft is terrible"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, attentive, and polite"

Pros: "It was so nice to fly direct again!"

Pros: "Flight was faster then expected. Friendly/pleasant crew."

Pros: "Flight rough as we passed over major storm. Great landing at CHS in a stiff wind and we were 20 minutes early!"

Pros: "The attendants were great"
Cons: "The line of people in the aisle waiting for the bathroom."

Pros: "The spacing between seats were good."
Cons: "The head rest and neck comfort was horrible. I took a red eye flight and didn't get a comfortable sleep."

Pros: "On time friendly"

Pros: "Clean, newer plane on time with courteous professional staff. All went very well."
Cons: "Not a thing."

Pros: "Everything and everyone was awesome"

Pros: "0"

Pros: "Entertainment, free movies"

Cons: "We had to go back to the gate after we started the taxi to take off because some idiot had remembered he left a lithium battery in his checked luggage... The service cart kept hitting me and the attendant didn’t even say sorry or excuse me... aisles are too narrow... seats are too small. The guy next to me wouldn’t put the arm rest down because he felt to cramped, so he was hitting me with his elbow all evening... I’m just not happy, but glad to be home."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late at night"

Pros: "Flight was on time-ish, no trouble really. Call center folks were great."
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled with no explanation. My girlfriend was notified of this and I was not. When I called to get my flight details I was informed that I was to fly out on a completely different day instead. After explaining that there was no chance of that happening, the call center rep was happy to help. The flight was now an American Airlines flight booked through Alaska. About 3 days before our flight we both received calls from American saying that they did not have our passenger information. Apparently Alaska just didn't transfer that over. We also now had two confirmation codes as the returning and connecting flights were still with Alaska. Once we got to the airport on the day of I was able to print my American Airlines boarding pass, however I could not print my Alaska boarding pass on neither American nor Alaska's kiosks. It was a redeye flight as well so there was no staff at the check in counters yet. We ultimately did get to our destination, but it was such a completely unnecessary headache to get there."

Pros: "Overall I would say I was pretty impressed with Alaska, their crew and their service. I would say that the part I most enjoyed about your flight services was the gogo inflight internet. On my iPhone 6 it worked perfectly and i happily enjoyed multiple free movies on my flight. My wife did experience some troubles connecting with her LG 6. Hopefully as you go along you will continue to work to get better support for all phone types."
Cons: "I think mostly it is because the world has become so allergy sensitive that these things must be avoided at all cost, but I'd say my least favorite part about the flight was the inflight "snack" service. I don't know where these biscotts came from, but I miss the old days of peanuts and pretzels. I will commend you that the drink cart came around 2 times during our flight. I think that is great. But the drink cart was definitely missing Dr. Pepper."

Cons: "I was asked to gate check my bag, which I did. Then waited an hour on the tarmac while they “rebalanced the baggage” which turned out to mean “taking 60 bags off the plane and leaving them.” They didn’t ask for volunteers or even tell us until we got to baggage claim and our bags didn’t show. The carryon I was asked to gate check will now be held at least 24 hours. Totally deceitful and unprofessional."

Pros: "The weather was exceptionally bad with very low visibility and lots of turbulence. I don’t know where they found this magical pilot - he managed to navigate the turbulence and land on a dime beautifully. Well done Alaska Airlines. And give that pilot a raise!!!"

Pros: "What sets this airline apart from the others is its aircraft. Charging stations, inflight WIFI and the free movies is excellent. I will recommend to any one I know who flies!"

Cons: "It was a 3 hours flight and no"

Pros: "The seating was comfortable. The flight crew was very customer focused and pleasant. I was wry impressed and would fly with this airline again and"

Pros: "Love your service so much. Thank you."

Pros: "Ease of their app, upgrading to different seats, polite flight attendants and pilots that made a flight 30 mins behind schedule to being 10 mins ahead of schedule. Well done...."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, could use a little more padding."

Pros: "I felt safe and it was a smooth flight."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline back because it broke on 23C"

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "We weren't issued a boarding pass. We reach the the ticket counter before the cut off off point. But are agent took their time so they didn't allow us to check a bag and make it on our flight. We were turn away and it cost us a day and our night at an expensive hotel. Also I later found out our flight was delayed which meant. We should be able to check our bag and make on our plane without an issue. Very unsatified."

Pros: "As above. Great service, everyone was really nice."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly, on time"

Pros: "Great service, smooth flight and I'm time."
Cons: "The two tiny cookies were way too wimpy for such a long flight. There should be at least a protein offered for free to all passengers."

Cons: "Work on your website! Logging in was a huge hassle because of several reasons I don't feel like getting into now."

Pros: "Florida got hadgood leg room."
Cons: "The barcode at auto check in did not print out so I had to go to the main desk. No one was available until 12:30 for a 2:45 flight. The flight was late and they did not explain why. There were no outlets to plug devices in even though the flight info bragged that they did. On my flight to St. Louis there were also no outlets on that flight. I used to love Alaska airlines, but the quality has dropped."

Pros: "Direct flight, crew to Stl great, to Pdx average"
Cons: "No suggestions at this time"

Pros: "They were kind, considerate and friendly."

Cons: "Couldn't figure out who to talk to about the baggage delay."

Pros: "Flight crew were very informative and very kind. The"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the the staff was friendly and made sure things were well taken care of."
Cons: "The in flight special meal there was only a select number of them on board so by time the cart got to me they were sold out. Come on Alaskan should've had enough for everyone."

Pros: "I was asking for a beverage and the flight attendant scolded me for me voice?! Very embarrassing."

Pros: "Comfortable seating, loved the charging port on seatbacks, kind staff."
Cons: "Could've used more options on the entertainment website, or at least shown a movie for everyone"

Pros: "Everything went so smoothly from check-in to leaving the airport"

Cons: "Ran out of the food I wanted to order"

Pros: "Crew were all markedly genuine. Not just polite or courteous. They all came across as interested in our comfort and safety. When one of the ground crew came into the boarding ramp from outside to hand some supplies off to a flight attendant he even said good morning to everyone. I didn't eat the food or use the entertainment because I had both covered, so I gave them 3 stars."
Cons: "Boarding process was a little hard to understand. It seemed like it might be from back to front--which I thought made some sense. But others seemed a little confused too. If there was a way to make it clearer to all that would be great. Like boarding groups explicitly outlined in print based on your seat number or something."

Pros: "Space on plane and staff"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "I travel with a fragile instrument, and everyone was helpful in ensuring that I stowed it safely."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very attentive to our needs while traveling with 2 small children."
Cons: "The entertainment offered was very limited for a 4 hour flight."

Pros: "Crew tried to spray deodorizer to help stench of plane. Raw sewage but worse."
Cons: "Maintenance issue delayed takeoff. Sat on the worst smelling plane for 45 minutes on runway"

Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Easy flight. Non stop=huge bonus! Arrival 5 minutes early. All good!"

"Even tho we paid to have seat next to each other we had to give them up, and my husband who just had major surgery on his hand was given an isle seat which was part of the reason we PAID to have seats next to each other and him in a middle seat"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Due to COVID 19 we got a 737-800 on a route that usually boasts nothing better than a 717 so everything about this flight was superior to normal runs."
Cons: "I wish DL could find a way to better manage food and drinks during the COVID 19 restrictive era."

Pros: "Crew was nice the flight was smooth and comfortable seats."

Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."

Cons: "Food service Leg room"

Pros: "You're kidding!!!"
Cons: "Seating 3 across. the passenger on the isle seat got served and the other passenger and myself were ignored. NO SERVICE!"

Pros: "Diverted for unclear reasons. Stuck in TSY with hotel voucher to an overbooked hotel; trying to find out of pocket accommodations after long day of no food at MIDNIGHT was a real downer! I’ll let ya know if I make it home TODAY!!!"

Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."

Cons: "Left A bag behind in NY"

Pros: "Nice crew. Stable flight."
Cons: "No gluten free snack options."

Pros: "They ran out of my preferred menu choice for the first meal. Martha went out of her way to bring my first choice for the second meal, which was very thoughtful. Nancy brought my friend an extra meal."
Cons: "I thought there would be more new releases to watch, but overall the selection was good."

Pros: "36 minute flight.."
Cons: "Not really much you can do"

Cons: "Didn’t make the flight due to delay and late arrival! No help getting seats on a later flight or next morning."

Pros: "Delta personnel at DTW knew they were overwhelmed and did everything they could to mitigate the problems."
Cons: "Delta should have had more than 3 staff on to check in 300 people."

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Takes so long to board plane"

Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."

Cons: "The bathrooms on the plane were soooooo tiny, and the logos on the bathroom doors didn't work well."

Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."

Pros: "Everything was easy and smooth."

Pros: "It was actually a Delta Airlines flight. In business class. Service was good."

Pros: "Quick!"

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Pros: "Everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing!!!!!!!!!11111!!!!1111111!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "We boarded late, then sat in a hot plane for an ester 30-40 mins because the route got cancelled. They wouldn’t serve us beverages while it was so hot inside. We landed over 49 mins later into Lax"

Cons: "Not being to check our tickets on line"

Cons: "Delayed due to problem with the door"

Cons: "not prepared in Maintenance to fix a very small problem in an efficient timeframe. Also, this plane was very dirty ..bathroom, walls, seat rails, floors....not good Delta"

Pros: "Got upgraded to comfort class it was comfy"

Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"

Cons: "My flight was delayed over 3 hours and I have reached out to Delta and no one has called or emailed me back."

Pros: "Super friendly staff and on-time flights. Love the TV, movies, wi-fi and snack goodies!"

Pros: "Got exit seats with extra leg room at no charge . Flight was quick and crew was very accomadating and friendly. Very good at providing updates and delays"

Pros: "The flight was ontime, boarding was okay. Disembarking seemed a little slow."
Cons: "Seats have gotten narrower and closer together and it was a new plane which seemed to have more slope to the wall which meant even less room in the window seat. Too warm in the plane"

Pros: "Friendliness, spirit, organization of crew."
Cons: "The obvious- no leg room, no food"

Pros: "Crew very nice"

Pros: "LGA caused massive delays due to construction."
Cons: "Nice airplane with good seats and legroom"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"

Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."

Cons: "Rough flight and landing."

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."

Pros: "Boarding, food, drinks"
Cons: "Seats (not much reclining, I felt them uncomfortable)"

Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

Cons: "First class seats were uncomfortable for a 6.5 hour overnight flight."

Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable in delta comfort zone."

Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."

"I need to go back to waterloo this week"

"From the moment I walked into the airport in Chicago to the moment I was walking off the plane in Florida I had an unforgettable experience! I was traveling with my 3 month old by myself and everyone just made sure I was taken care of. I couldn’t thank them enough!"

"There was no entertainment and again, the seats were very cramped and uncomfortable."

"I left my phone in seat 6C or B where I sat with my husband. The lady with the oxygen tank needed help coming back from the bathroom as we were ready to land. We stopped the movie we were watching on my phone to help her and I guess I forgot it. Please, please return my phone. Samsung note galaxy 20 ultra. It is on airplane mode. Thanks so much"

"Too busy trying to sell AA credit cards"

Pros: "The plane was really clean and they had lots of overhead storage."
Cons: "It was too crowded and cramped and UNCOMFORTABLE and there was a REALLY LOUD kid that would not shut up and nothing was done about it."

Cons: "On time take off would be nice"

Cons: "The Terminal in Chicago had no open amenities and overcrowded."

Pros: "The plane is amazing and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Everything was all good."

Cons: "We didn’t even have a pilot, had to call and find one because our pilot that was scheduled “forgot to call in sick”. We were already delayed by 4 hrs so this made it delayed by an hour more!"

Pros: "Glad we made it back."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time. Attendants in the airline could have communicated much better to give update on delay, but they did not give any information despite several times getting up to ask questions at the main check-in. Many of the passengers were very discouraged. Plane left nearly 2 hours late due to an unclear maintenance issue, paperwork and also no fuel put in the plane until all passengers we on board."

Cons: "Change your fist class cabin. If we’re paying that much for a 4 hour flight we should be in a better cabin. The flight from Lax to O’Hare was great but the plane coming back is old and ragged"

Pros: "Fell asleep"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like the ability to watch movies"
Cons: "The cabin was hot... air didn’t blow well... the crew was abrasive and rude. I asked simple questions and got long explanations for no reason"

Pros: "Crew was excellent especially the first class attendant very attentive and always checking on you"
Cons: "The food needs to be back to normal for first class and also baggage is very slow almost over 30 min wait"

Pros: "The aircraft was very clean, neat and well maintained. The crew was friendly. Process of checked-in luggage was seamless and straightforward."
Cons: "I found the istructions on some restricted items to be confusing and contradictory between instructions at the airport, the AA website and the TSA website. The agent at the counter was well-informed, though, and it all ended up going well."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was how should be"
Cons: "I like how you are now."

Pros: "The fact that no one sat next to me believe me it was not a my choice there was just not a body to put in the seat"
Cons: "The staff was not friendly or say hello or goodbye"

Cons: "None of the USB outlets were working in isle 7 A-C"

Cons: "More comfortable seats you can sleep in"

Cons: "Leave a seat empty in the middle could be good for social distancing"

Pros: "Roomy, comfy seats. Thanks for the snack and bottle water provided during covid"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "The crew was fine, friendly enough, although I was incredibly disappointed that they didn't force people to wear their masks as they boarded. They also didn't enforce masks over noses--rendering masks useless."
Cons: "The flight was completely full. And people weren't wearing masks as they boarded, and the flight attendants did nothing about that. Also, there was no distancing IN the airport during boarding. It's NOT DIFFICULT to put tape marks on the ground to ensure physical distancing. It is THEIR responsibility to make sure the process is safe, since half of the people seem to not care about distancing (or mask wearing). I'm incredibly disappointed and I will be flying Southwest for the time being: I hear they're better at enforcing distancing."

Cons: "Plane had to land in a different city due to inclement weather. Very disorganized process, huge traveling setback, never got my travel voucher."

Cons: "Made it a smaller flight. It was a lot of people on the plane! We could not practice social distancing"

Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."

Pros: "The crew serving the plane didn't look like they wanted to be there. Somewhat abrasive. The entertainment was poor and not very easy to access through your mobile, Iphone and Ipad. If you want to provide a better customer experience, equip all your planes with seats video screens. Passengers on a 4 to 5 hours flight don't want to have to figure out what do to watch a movie or TV. I don't fly American that often, but wanted to give it a try to see the difference between you and the other airlines. I have to say that on the return segment (ORD to SFO), I was not that impressed."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The crew skipped me for breakfast and i had to ask for food."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Bread rolls stale and inedible. The rest of the flight was good."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The cliff notes of this debacle are, inbound flight arrived late to Montreal, I contacted AA social media team to make sure they could notify the gate of my connecting flight, they didn’t after they said they did. Flight arrived in Chicago a little early, I have to wait 15 min for my bags from the valet, I run to the next gate and arrive with 13 min to spare, the gate agent (not nice) goes I’m sorry we already closed the door. I’m like, huh? Then he has the gall to tell me, “well had someone called us we could of held your seat”. That’s when I lost it. Needless to say I’m now flying to Dayton and back to Dallas. That’s in lieu of a 3:50 PM flight TOMORROW!"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."

Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"

Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."

Pros: "Eventually, the actual flight was fine."
Cons: "Initially delayed by 3hours (mechanical) which was American Eagle couldn’t get their “bucket of bolts” to Springfield, MO on time so we missed our flight out of Charlotte to Barcelona. Then we were rerouted through Chicago, but lost our first class seats and were bumped back to coach. This was after I had bought first class tickets for the entire trip only to be told 3 months before leaving that AA decided to switch planes on our domestic flight so there’s were no first class seats. THEN, in Chicago we tried to get first class seats on British Airways which would have been fine but After being sent to another terminal (after the bus to that terminal had stopped running) we were turned back because British Airways wouldn’t accept the boarding pass that AA had issued us. Now, having to go back to the first terminal to DISCUSS all this, we miss that flight and wind up stuck in Chicago for another 24 hours. Then, that flight was delayed by 3 hours, so we lost a day and a half of our vacation."

Pros: "I got here."
Cons: "Everything else. American cancelled my first flight from MSP to ORD. And when I got to Chicago, it cancelled my next flight to Nashville. The flight I managed to get on departed two hours late. There was no explanation for each of these cancellations/delays. There was virtually zero inclement weather anywhere, save for most of the country’s temperature being nearly equivalent to the surface of Neptune. And, the surly, clueless Chicago-based gate agent was the coupe de grace in my search for a reasonable explanation after which I waited impatiently for this episode to conclude. American get your act together."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I was traveling today with my daughter, who is 6 months pregnant, my 3 1/2 & 18 month old grandsons, my husband & son-in law on an international flight from Chicago to Manchester. I was very disappointed a 757 was used for an international flight! No attempt was made by staff to accomodate our family with a extra seat for the infant, even though there were a large number of rows with empty middle seats (4 of which were directly behind them!) The 1st indication of the beginning of the NIGHTMARE was when the plane arrived in Chicago and overshot the gate, this caused almost an hour delay! (We heard our crew saying "oops" while looking out the window at the plane arriving & then again when they were discussing it would have been faster if the plane had used a different method to get to the gate again.) This was then followed by a mechanical problem with a frozen water valve, requiring us to be de-iced x2! Then we started to taxi out and again had to return because of a hydraulic problem that required repair. I think we were delayed almost 3.5 hours. The crew did bring a round of water during the onground delays, and offered free drinks later in the flight. The icing on the cake was not getting the stroller back at the gate because there were no baggage handlers. I can't tell you how much FUN that was trying to corral a toddler & 3yr old with all our carry-on bags while getting thru customs! Did I mention in our haste to get off that plane we overlooked my daughter's winter maternity coat in the overhead! May be time to switch to the Friendlier Skies of United for our UK travel!"

Cons: "American completely missed the mark. AA did not successfully change our reservation when the initial leg of our trip was delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue, which caused us to miss your connection in Chicago. Since American partners with Alaskan Airlines, American should have changed my reservations with regards to Alaska Airlines, but they failed to do that. I stood at the Alaskan Airlines counter as the plane left the gate with our empty seats because there was not a ticket. American Airlines did not change a reservation successfully and so although we had boarding passes with our names and seats and the flight number, the plane left without us. I was stranded and Seattle airport at midnight with a child and an infant with one diaper and one bottle left and it was a terrible experience with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying American they cannot get it together when problems happen with delays."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "I bought the tickets together, but was informed at the ticket counter that i had only purchased tickets—not boarding passes. Boarding passes needed to be purchased by paying extra if my husband and I wanted to sit next to each other. I tried calling the customer service line through kayak and waited on hold for a long time with no indication of wait time. When the gate agent arrived, we asked and were moved to seats next to each other right away. The ticket agent at initial check in was very abrasive and non-solution oriented. if what she was saying was true— that we only paid for tickets and had to pay extra for boarding passes together— that was never made clear during the booking process. It’s unlikely I’ll use kayak again unless I know for sure what I’m buying."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I chose a package on the cheap flights that has a left hand side for choosing number of baggage which invariably inreases fare depending on the number of baggage and i choose 2 and paid for 2 baggage but the ticket came with 1 baggage and i contacted both by phone call, email and your website but did not get any fsvourable response. Had to pay again at the airport for the extra bag. This is highly unfair."

Pros: "The entertainment was good. Lots of choices. Food was about what I would expect for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were terrible. I don't know what it was about them, but I've never had a more uncomfortable flight. My husband had leg cramps for much of the flight and couldn't get comfortable. The rest of the flight was fine, but the uncomfortable seats were a huge minus. We'll probably try to avoid 787s from now on. The window-darkening system was annoying. They darkened the windows when it was dark outside and they darkened the cabin, so we couldn't look out the window. It was dark outside--why the need to darken the windows?? My husband requests window seats so he can look out the window."

Pros: "Flight was on time."

Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"

Cons: "The airline "randomly" selected me for extra security. Even though I have TSA pre-check I was jostled around, sent to multiple security lines without any reasoning and the local Chicago TSA and airport staff didn't seem to know what to do. Once it was figured out I was subjected to what was essentially a cavity search. Again I HAVE TSA-pre-check but apparently that means nothing if an airline flags you. It was an extremely upsetting experience but you were in a situation of either agree to the invasive search or get stranded over 1000 miles from home. I will NEVER fly Iberia again after a cancelled flight and being stranded in the wrong country on the way to my vacation and the horrible security experience on the way back. I seriously may never go to Chicago either after seeing the complete lack of organization and traumatizing personal invasion. I fly a lot for work and have never had such a horrible experience. I would really like to know how many terrorists are caught with these invasive searches and would love to know the justification for sticking your hands inside someone's pants and grabbing their privates after they have already gone through a metal detector AND the body scanner. Especially for someone who has already passed a federal background check to obtain pre-check status. Absolutely ridiculous."

Pros: "Seats quite comfortable. Crew ok."
Cons: "Pitiful food offering and no entertainment at all when on previous 1.5 hour AA flight choice of movies."

Pros: "I have nothing good to say about the flight to LA or the flight back to Chicago from LA."
Cons: "3 of the 4 flights were late, and the 4th was canceled. The canceled flight was due to weather, but AA's response was to connect those of us stranded with a 3rd party vendor - Travelliance - with the promise of a SUBSTANTIAL discount for a hotel (SINCE THE NEXT FLIGHT I WAS GIVEN WAS 17 HOURS LATER!) - and there was, effectively, NO DISCOUNT. I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars with you over the years, but this was a bucker of water in the face. I'm sure I'll fly with you again, but any sort of good will I held for AA is gone."

Pros: "we landed. flight was on time"
Cons: "Female flight attendants were rude. I think that if they would have smiled, their faces would have cracked. Even a complete stranger said to me, while waiting for the restroom, "I think that they hate us". One young male attendant was friendly and I believe that he was training. I fear for his training experience with this group of women. One of the lavatories was out of order {....on an international flight! Are you kidding!?!}. I think that they searched for the most antiquated plane that could limp across the ocean for this flight. Nine hours of pure discomfort. My poor 71 year old mother! Zero leg room. Tiny little screen for movies on the ceiling of the middle row. trays were not clean. We paid extra for our seats and wondered how bad the seats were for those that didn't. My mother and I determined that this was ranked as one of the worst flight experiences we have ever had. We are grateful for an amazing experience for our return flight or we would have reconsidered ever flying AA again."

Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."

Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."

Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "I booked with British Airways and later noticed the plane was operated for American Airlines. The seats were cramped and the online entertainment was terrible. On an overseas flight, I expect in 2017 that there will be on-screen entertainment on the back of the seat in front of me. Instead, the movie was projected on a screen in the middle seats on an overhead that was about 10 rows away. Plus, you didn't get to pick your movie. You were stuck with the selections provided by the airline. I would have brought along my DVD player or laptop had I know this was going to happen. American flight crews are not as friendly and accommodating as European flight crews, which is why I try not to select an American carrier. Seats are less comfortable on American carriers also."

Pros: "Quick boarding. A bit of personality from pilot"
Cons: "The delay at gate was said to be 10 minutes- no update for at least 30. Almost an hour waiting for gate"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Online check in, we’re charged for everything, EVERYTHING. For that I’ll take a connection next time"

Pros: "The flight from CVG to LAS pretty quick"
Cons: "Allegiance staff at Check-in staff are very rude AMD full of themselves, instead of explaining they expect every traveler know policies of allegiant, there are no boarding pass scanners and to print for you they want $5 if not they force to download their app so that you can get the boarding pass that can be read by TSA scanners ridiculous!!"

Pros: "The plane was super clean, no fear of COVID-19."

Cons: "Major delays, no communication from airline"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Should offer free water at least."

Cons: "The air pressure in the cabin was awful. My ears hurt & it gave me sharp pains in my head. Even typical yawning & blowing nose did not help."

Pros: "Boarding was fast. We arrived early."
Cons: "It was too cold & they kept turning on the lights (it was a late night flight)."

Pros: "Crew there and back. Professional and fun"
Cons: "When boarding in Asheville. Flight crew had no control. Everyone bumrushed counter. No control of boarding. Adults boarding before parents with children. People boarding priority when they are not."

Cons: "They would not refund the charge for a carry on I made in error. I did not have a carry on. Would not give me info as to where I could take my complaint so I guess I took it here. The guy at the desk was HORRIBLE"

Cons: "Very dissatisfied with boarding and told we had to pay for our luggage but noone else did .I had prepaid for 1 incase I brought big luggage but I brought carry ones. So I was charged 100..but everyone else's was larger"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Still in Reno. Aircraft broke down"

Pros: "Crew was really nice! Flight was quick and easy"

Cons: "I cancelled this flight and somehow it doesn’t show in your records and now I cant find the cancellation.. I am not in Orlando.. last time I will use Kayak."

Pros: "Great flight"

Pros: "Great crew and online customer service..."
Cons: "1- Flight Behind Schedule 2- Live customer service agents are truly non-existent until 1.5hrs before ‘departure’"

Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"
Cons: "I will never fly you again. Sure you don’t care."

Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"

Cons: "Seats are hard"

Pros: "Wow, what an awesome flight , crew, price, and nice airport. Doing to try this again next time."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags but hey , it is Christmas !"

Pros: "Great direct flight to many destinations smaller airports less wait time"
Cons: "seats are crowded"

Pros: "From entering the airport, gate, and plane- nothing is more pleasant and efficient than Allegiant flights. I was able to attend my grandsons bday and back by start of the next week- round trip at REASONBLE prices! Thank you."
Cons: "I am ok with it but the walk way was so filthy on my return trip. I know plane was late and we boarded late... but a really quick vacuum would have taken only a few minutes. I realize it was messy from cl"

Cons: "I understand that Allegiant has a pricing structure to implement, but forcing passengers to keep personal items between their feet when most of the overhead compartments were empty was just insulting and ridiculous - not to mention dangerous. In the event of extreme turbulence (or worse), all those personal items would be flying around the cabin."

Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Seating assignment before the flight. Direct flights."
Cons: "Felt nickel and dimed to death by extra fees for trip insurance, luggage, and picking advanced seating. Ended up spending more than if we had just chose another airline."

Pros: "No frills inexprnsive"
Cons: "No services"

Pros: "Cleanliness, friendliness, on time."
Cons: "Charging for drinks and snacks snacks.."

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Not even water provided on flight. I miss amenities."

Pros: "The speed"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Everything they could control went very well."
Cons: "The flight had a lot of turbulence, but that's not their fault. I thought the pullout handled the situation well."

Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."

Pros: "The plane departed on time. The crew was very friendly."

Pros: "Flight itself was low in cost. Also, crew member on departure from Fwb was a real sweetheart. E-boarding pass was nice."
Cons: "They charged for everything! Seats, luggage and small snacks. Good thing you can bring your own."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very respectful and courteous."
Cons: "Last 10 minutes of landing the plane was very very rough. A few people had to pull out the barf bags Lots of speeding up and slowing down. Ups and downs. It wasn't turbulence but it felt like it."

Pros: "Low cost, great service, arrived 20 min early"
Cons: "Seats were kinda tight but I'm sort of used to that"

Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."

Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."

Cons: "My flight to Vegas was cancelled the day of the trip, so the trip back did not exist for me. How does an airline do business this way? I had hotel booked and lost out on money."

Pros: "GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR A FIRST TIME FLYER"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "direct flight to where i wanted to go was great initial fare was very low, add-ons added up though."
Cons: "flight out was handled by Miami Air, lost the money i spent on a seat. everything costs extra, including printing a boarding pass. the app wouldn't let me check in so i had to go to the desk. i had to show the person that the app told me to go the desk then she printed the pass for free."

Pros: "Nothing about it at all"
Cons: "I didn't like the turbalance on the plane I didn't like the service check in line Need more people helping in the airport"

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything."

Pros: "I sat in the front row so that I had leg room. It was worth the extra 20 bucks."
Cons: "No champagne."

Pros: "It's ridiculous have to pay to bring a bag on your airplane it's ridiculous that your staff at the Medford airport or unprofessional and lack common courtesy."
Cons: "Gate staff at Medford Oregon airport were rude and unaccommodating"

Pros: "Convenient, Clean, Quality, Care"

Pros: "Very friendly staff very attentive"
Cons: "Very small and uncomfortable seating will probably fly Delta for the same price"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and did their best under difficult circumstances."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed by 2 hours. When we arrived in Rapid City, we were stuck in the taxiway for more than half an hour before we could get to our gate."

Pros: "I didn't fly out of newburgh because of the nine hour delay I had to reschedule my flight"

"Easy flight & quiet!"

"Boarding gate door was closed on connecting passengers and we missed this flight"

"Everyone was very helpfull with bording."

"Best flights I have had in a long time!"

"Bad information from Kayak. unhelpful and confusing."

Pros: "Grew was amazing."

Pros: "Excellent experience & return flight on airbus plane was fantastic, reduced flight time by 1 hour. Great trip, thank you United Airlines"
Cons: "All great"

Pros: "Price line is better not thief like you yu take my money for nothing my husband not traveling your given me fake tickets . bring my money back on my account. am gonna take to court yu fukin beach.yubstolen my money"

Cons: "Multiple people on flight not wearing masks"

Cons: "No bad, easy"

Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."

Pros: "One passenger was removed from the plane after 3 times he was warned about removing his mask before takeoff. Due to Covid19, United was boarding by row, from the rear to the front."
Cons: "When I made the original bookings, United was not allowing the middle site of the row to be used. Unfortunately, the plane was almost packed. 8 seats in the rear were empty."

Cons: "United Airlines in our experience runs late putting a lot of pressure on any ongoing connections . Not clean . Staff not friendly . Only sometimes helpful."

Pros: "Nothing, to be honest."
Cons: "Terrible boarding process (boarding groups one and two together for the first time, so even though we were group two priority, we did not get on until the middle of three and no overhead bin space left). There was no snack/beverage service. We did get a tiny bag of pretzels and were supposed to get either water or juice, but we never saw a beverage. Also, my seat's entertainment did not work. The worst was the HORRIBLE TINY ECON SEATS!!! Unless you are a child or a small woman/man, I would avoid this flight if at all possible. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight, and I fly a dozen times a year for the last 25 years."

Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Kayak sent me a message that our connecting flight out of O'Hare was boarding at gate B5. However, checking the monitors in the terminal showed the correct gate was B21, which is on the opposite end of the terminal. I don't know why Kayak had the wrong information on this. We barely made our connecting flight because our starting flight was over 30 minutes late, which was United's fault. This made rushing to the correct gate for our connecting flight all the more stressful. No time to stop at the bathrooms or pick up something to eat. Both United and Kayak let me down on getting back to Hartford. We arrived at the end of boarding with no room left for our bags in the overheads so we had to check them and pick them up at the carousel. A totally BAD flight experience."

Cons: "It seems flights are always delayed or cancelled out of Chicago. My least favorite airport"

Pros: "TV and movie choices should be according to 2018 instead of1980. Also TV should be from running Era"

Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Cons: "Everything was really not great. Air china had mediocre food that some of it wasn't bad but other was so so."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot admitted error. They did not even know what was going on. 3 hours late due to last min maintenance after the plane had been on the ground since last night. No supervisor came even though we asked the captain to contact one. We were ignored. Total clusterfuck. Pilot was courteous and professional but front desk was Frazzled and incompetent. We were hugely inconvenienced and missed our obligations with no offer of compensation. Then when we finally get on the plane they kick us off!!!!!!!!!! Now they are saying a 630 departure for a 2 pm flight. This is beyond acceptable and I am about to call the local news and am sending them video of your gross incompetence. I want to be contacted at 815-527-1935 immediately. My time is valuable and no part of this delay is acceptable. I want full flight vouchers for this debacle"

Pros: "Captain and crew were brilliant, kept passengers informed throughout as to the delays, as a result all passengers were patient and understanding. Not much more could have been done to improve the experience as the snow and conditions at Dublin airport were out of their hands."

Pros: "My husband and i we want to seat next to each other"
Cons: "1) Chicago O'Hare Airport Airline staff very rude. 2) from Los Angeles to Chicago my husband and i are not sitting to each other. My husband is upset. 3) from Chicago to Los Angeles my husband and i are not sitting to each other. It happened again. Very disappointing. We think the airline doing this intentionally."

Pros: "The price was unreal so I had to jump on this, I was able to get on and off with my backpack no problem. The flights were good, captains were very communicative about times, expectations and when turbulence was present."
Cons: "The check in had to be done in person because of the need to check my bag size, I felt a little insulted that I would have to be checked on my honesty. When I got to the check in it was like watching a special forces team measuring and prodding peoples bags to get them in to the little box even when the shapes were the reason they couldn't fit, not the size of the bags. I literally watched someone fit their bag and the attendant take it out and make it misshaped for the box and show how it didn't slide in. I had no issues with my luggage, but that sucked to watch happen to others. The food and drinks came about 10 minutes before the plane landed."

Cons: "Had to download the United app to watch in flight movies. Then it didn't even work. The only thing that would play were the trailers."

Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."

Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"

Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"

Pros: "The flight crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "Though not the fault of the crew or airlines, we were delayed almost 90 minutes because a parent took their toddler into the lavatory while at the gate and they messed it up and plugged the toilet with paper towels and/or pampers. This was after I had a 8-1/2 hour flight from Copenhagen, Denmark. Also, the seat space and amenities are so inferior to international flights. The narrowness of the seat and closeness of the rows makes it hard to be comfortable. After being treated to two meals on the international flight, one small two-inch bag of snack mix is almost pointless."

Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."

Cons: "Such a downgrade from other airlines! Awful! They board backwards. Usually the back seats board on the plane after the special needs people. Makes more sense, people are out of the way. My water was poured into a cup from a big water battle. I like how Jetblue gives me a personal water bottle and a variety of snack option. I was given a "snack mix" on this flight which was not good. I hated this flight and there were NO televisions, or usb ports to charge phones. Never again. They didn't even have enough room for carry on bags for everyone. Thank god I packed light and didn't need to use that option. Good to know United Airlines has crappy everything."

Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time and that the entertainment actually worked properly."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my husband and i had one option only and that was Indian vegan vegetarian dish. We were told that's all there was left. We gave back our tray. I don't mind going without food for a flight but my husband had surgery die to diverticulitis and can only eat certain food. The flight attendant said that she was going to check if there is anything left in first class but it took for ever and I become impatient as the light were turned off and people were getting ready to sleep. So I switch on the light and another flight attendant came by. I explained the situation but she came back with the same Indian vegetarian dish we turned away. After more frustration and explanation the Stewart came with the. Hi Ken version. I gave my husband my share and he was able to finally take his medication and eat the chicken with the bread. I only ate the ice cream and had a glass of wine. Later on the first flight attendant who served us the meal came with a couple of oranges and a bag of chips. Saying she got this from first class. I kept the oranges and gave her back the chips. Floghing with United is very disappointing to put it mildly."

Pros: "There was a good entertainment system with a lot of new options."
Cons: "My itinerary said I fly on Brussels Airlines on a specific flight number. I went to the international terminal to discover it is not there. I then asked multiple aiport staff members if they heard of Brussels Airlines and they said they did not. One person said it may be terminal 1, so I went there based on very little information and with hopes it would be there. I got to terminal 1 to discover there is no Brussels Airlines. I walked to Lufthansa because my return flight is through them, but it was not there either. At this point I have 45 min to make it through security and board, and no one can tell me where Brussels Airlines is. The good news is the flight was delayed, and I got an email from United Airlines with the flight status. This is the first time I was contacted by United and there was a completly different flight number than the itinerary. United should be more clear on the airline and terminal information for international flights!"

Cons: "I had a man sit next to me who was in the wrong seat but didn't move. He told the girl to keep his seat and he would stay next to me. He was so big he was in my space and had didn't make any effort to try not to spill over in my area. I had to put a magazine next to my thigh because his body was so hot it was damp! I hated the entire trip. I was cramped up and extremely uncomfortable. This is simply unacceptable to have this happen because huge people can't fit in one seat. I want these obese people to be required to purchase 2 seats because they take mine."

Pros: "Nothing!!! It was handled in a terrible way"
Cons: "The way they didn't care"

Pros: "Free carryon"
Cons: "Couldn't figure out wifi"

Pros: "From what I encountered at the crack of dawn this morning... The staff handled somnolent, irratable passengers in a full capacity 757, with nothing but unwaivering efforts and kindness. (shrieking baby temper-tantrums, service dogs, and people allergic to service dogs included) Even while dealing with the most self-entitled, disappointingly inconsiderate individuals, the flight attendants kept their composure and remained understanding, professional and accomadating. As for that rude, pompous pig of a woman up in front.. try and remember we're all human here and you should attempt to treat others like so. I can't imagine the staff being particularly fond of the idea of spending an hour delay with your continuous, huffy bitching in their ear. (as if they have any control over the situation"
Cons: "Me and my boyfriend's seats were separated on both flights.. apparently it was in the fine print.. I don't know :/ kind of sleasey, kind of lame. Be transparent. Luckily, met a great guy who had no issues switching! :)"

Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."

Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."

Cons: "several people assigned to the same seats, mine included. lots of last minute moving around."

Pros: "Some of the people I dealt with were nice. All of the flight attendants and pilots were nice."
Cons: "United only had one person working to check people in, and due to a lady with 8+ bags that the only agent had to take 20+ minutes with (while the line stacked up behind us), we ended up missing the first leg of our flight. Told us our bags would be checked all the way through, and they weren't. Checked bag got lost on the way back (again, due to misinformation from United on whether our bag would be checked all the way through), and when we got them back they had obviously been rooted through, with no note left by TSA. I fly often, and this was one of the worst flying experiences of my life."

Pros: "I didn't like much. The employees were great and that's about it!"
Cons: "I've only flown with United for four flights. And of those four flights they have been delayed for three of them. To be specific about this flight, straight off the bat the flight was late due to a late arriving plane.. Understandable. Then to top it off they had no pilot. So then the 1.5 hour delay has now turned into a four hour wait. But I'm still waiting for the flight so the wait could be even longer yet. The airline should consider refunding everyone's money on this flight. An hour delay is one thing, but four hours is uncalled for. Never flying with United again."

Pros: "Crew staff went out of his way to find something for my aisle to snack on when the person next to me asked if there was any snacks on the plane. The plane had to be changed for another plane due to a mechanical issue on the first plane, and the new plane had not been stocked with food after it's previous flight, yet the crew member was able to scrounge up some snacks for us! Also got complimentary directtv - nice, but doesn't make up for not getting home in time yet again."
Cons: "United sucks. I have flown it maybe 10-12 times in the past 2.5 years, mostly back and forth between Chicago and Boston. I have had only 3 round trip flights go without a hitch. Every other trip was delayed. This time 4 hours on my return flight to Boston due to a plane switch, boarding of a new plane to discover a mechanical issue, deboarding, waiting for a new plane, then boarding and sitting on the ground for another 40 min before we were able to take off. I was delayed 1.5 hours on the way to Chicago due to another plane swap (no joke). Still doesn't top but my worst 5 hour delay in Chicago on the way back to Boston because the captain didn't show up. United is atrocious and is my last choice or any airline. Only fly when I'm absolutely forced to now due to no other reasonable choices. They are below delta, JetBlue, American, southwest, and embarrassingly, spirit as well. Terrible."

Cons: "While happy to have pilots concerned about my safety, it was frustrating to suffer thru 2 different mechanical delays. The first one was a missing rivet - which turned out to be so bad they had to put Us in a different plane. Then, that plane developed some mechanical/software issues as we were taxing. My 3-hour flight turned into a +5.5 HR endeavor. When you are on 2 broken planes in a row with the same airline you start to to wonder about how well they are maintaining their equipment. I feel like I deserve more than a "sorry" for the use of my extra time, but no credit or flight certificate was forthcoming."

Pros: "It left on time and arrived earlt"
Cons: "I was seated in a window seat and another woman my size about 110 pounds was seated in the aisle however there was a 400+ pound man sitting in a middle seat which made it very difficult for me especially to even sit back because it was touching me the whole time when you have somebody of that size You should make sure they are on and I'll because then the find attendance would have some difficulty getting through instead of your passengers being inconvenienced either that or force people of that size to take two seats"

Pros: "Loved that it was an empty flight"

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 40 minutes because of "paperwork" according to the pilot. We boarded the plane on time however had to sit on it during the delay. We were not informed of what was going on until we had already been waiting for 30 minutes. When they informed us of the delay they offered everyone free direct TV in flight to make up for the delay. Once we finally took off they announced that the direct TV was not actually working. The flight attendant making the announcements was not sincere and rather unprofessional. Luckily the pilot flew fast so we ended up arriving only 10 minutes late."

Cons: "Plane too small to support carry-on suitcases, so everyone had to check them gate side and then wait for them right outside plane. All the hassle of carry-on (carry belongings through airport) without the perk (having belongings available during flight)."

Pros: "We received a free video service for the flight"
Cons: "First of all the flight was booked for a plane which was too large to land in Providence. So either way we were going to have a longer day and extra leg.....which I only paid for ONE plane change. After running to the gate because my first flight was late taking off, this flight was delayed due to engine issues. The agent had us standing in line for 1 1/2 hours while she tried to figure out what was going on. So instead of taking off at 5:40 pm, we took off at 9 pm and still had to catch a bus from Boston to Providence...HORRIBLE Flight = Long Day/Night"

Pros: "The fact that you serve a small complimentary drink and snack on such a short flight was extremely appreciated. It seems most airlines either won't serve on a short flight or charge you extra. Also, I absolutely love the new seats on the planes you guys have been using for quite a while now. They're much more sleek/minimalist so they don't take up as much room. As a disabled person, the bulky seats still employed by many planes on other airlines are incredibly hard on me getting in and out of the seat isles. The crew was very efficient and kind. I also appreciate the thank you to military personnel that they announced at the end of the flight."
Cons: "My gate was moved a few minutes prior to scheduled boarding. It was a minor inconvenience. Flight was a bit late getting out, but still arrived at designated time. Complimentary Wifi would be pretty nice, but not expected."

Cons: "Lack of communication. Kept us belted down for s very long time. Lacked food service, lacked water service till the very end of the lock down. Then we were given the option to leave the plane as the doors were to be disarmed. But if we did the plane could get clearence and leave with no warning. I missed my connecting transportation, had to scrape my weekend plans, currently searching for a place to stay tonight while they locate my bag. I am cold and left my jacket in my bag. The United counter people are blaming it on the weather. I am sure everything was delayed by the laxadaysical baggage loader. The one person ( or lack of help loading the bags on the plane completely altered my travel plans. I requested assistance for hotel only to be told they are full when in fact several are vacant on the Internet. I should of videotaped the baggage loading in Canada, it would of went viral."
