Pros: "Short and easy"
Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"

Cons: "All was good."
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "Cabin was very clean and comfortble"
Cons: "Delay 3 hours in the unheated airport in Monterrey Mexico was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."
Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Normal too squished conditions."

Pros: "Left on time, no hassles at boarding. We were in premium economy and seating was comfortable for both of us, not-too-tall people. FA were quite friendly."
Cons: "One bathroom wouldn't flush, which was a problem with limited facilities and a full flight."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"
Cons: "My suitcase came without a wheel. Damaged luggage."
Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Cons: "There were extra seats to begin with and I was traveling alone with an infant. She barely slept the whole flight and I had a stuardis in a red dress who whem I asked for for a beverage made it seem like I asked for it right now. Didn't say a word Else to me until it was time to land and my daughter had just fell asleep. She told me. I had to take her out of the baby carrier. My daughter needed a diaper change and there were no places to change her. I tried to change her by the door really fast. The stuardis said no go change in a bathroom I asked which one had a changing station they said none and to just change in my lap. Plus my car seat was broke when I got it back."
Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Cons: "Paid for Comfort+ at the Kiosk. My app said I had a Comfort+ seat, but at boarding found out I had two (yes, two) non Comfort+ seats assigned to me. Had to call and tweet to get my payment for Comfort+ back. All in all a very poor showing for Delta's seat assignment and reservation system."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work."
Pros: "The check in personnel was fantastic - very helpful and friendly with a very relevant story that made me feel more relaxed. Our not so good seats were somewhat compensated by the plane staff that gave us each a full beverage can, extra pretzels, and some cookies."
Cons: "Our seats that we'd picked out seemed to get changed when we checked in and we got out in the last row, which had no window, and smelled strongly of bathroom cleaner."
Pros: "I commend the gate agent for trying to get the plane boarded by herself. But it was a SNAFU, very unusual for a Delta flight. By herself, it was almost impossible to deal with passports, visas, and people cutting inline."
Cons: "Didn't use the priority boarding lane. Once we boarded and left the gate, The plane stopped 30 ft away to proceed to unload and reorganize luggage in the cargo hold for about an hour. Flight was late in arrival by about two hours."
Cons: "Delay after delay, then missed connection."
Cons: "Small plane don't do well with turbulence"
Pros: "Short flight so no food, just soda/pretzels. Left on time, arrived a little early. Delta staff were average."
Cons: "Other passengers who bring carry-ons that are too large, and airlines that refuse to enforce the size limits. This creates unnecessary boarding delays and stress and conflict among the passengers and Delta staff. Also, as usual, coach seating is mediocre at best as airlines try to cram more people into a smaller spaces."
Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."
Cons: "The flight crew did little to enforce biosecurity measures among passengers who were not wearing their masks properly"
Pros: "Service was good, the overlaying in Cancun that I had to pay for just 4 hours of sleep was terrible"

Only had 2 carry on bags Had reserved earlier seats but was not honored. Sat in last row on plane next to bathrooms. I will never take this f....n airlines again. Rather pay more or be inconvenienced than deal with this incompetent, greedy so called airlines."

Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "The staff is attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Connection time was simply not enough, my first flight was delayed and when i got off the plane I had to run throughout the airport to catch my next flight in the last minute to board. Also they charge extra for your bags but no where in the web page I was informed of such charge."
Cons: "Ads while in the plane!"
Pros: "I wish I could post pictures of the broken magazine holder in front of my seat and the tangled seat belt that I could barely tie. Anyone heavier than me would not be able to buckle up on that seat. It was also VERY cold. The people around me were all covered up in heavy jackets and hats. When I mentioned this to the crew,they treated me with disdain and she said they could do nothing. What a shame, this used to be a great airline."
Cons: "Rude crew members, broken seat belt, broken magazine holder, way too cold for comfort."
Cons: "Small horrible plane, original 6am flight cancel without notice, took 9am flight instead, took off late. Last time using this airline."
Cons: "4 times I asked for a blanket, and finally when I put a not very nice face I get it."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, food was adequate. Smooth flight!"
Cons: "The plane was old and extremely filthy. In flight entertainment was lacking, given the flight was over 3 hours I had expected more options."
Pros: "Crew was rod. Need more people to help check out people"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Almost had 3 people in a row...of people not in Same household. Luckily flight wasn't full so people moved around and made my row less crowded"
Cons: "Social distancing"
Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Pros: "Crew was great and tried to accommodate the best they could"
Cons: "It was really cold on both flights, they had blankets for only first class and business class. We had an open seat as well next to us and they put a person in the open seat that was drunk and 22. Not cool"
Cons: "The crew was so rude"
Pros: "The Captain was well spoken and informative. The entire crew really seemed to care. They were so efficient. All of this happened in white-out conditions, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving—the busiest travel day in history! They were AWESOME. And the gate agents took advantage of 3 people who didn’t show to let my family sit together, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was great. I just want American Airlines to stop donating any money at all to those horrible, treasonous Republicans!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Less turbulence haha"
Pros: "The crew was great, comfortable"
Cons: "I was on a long business trip heading back from India. The flight was delayed leaving India which would have made me miss my connection in London to Phx. Fortunately the flight from London to Phx was delayed (because it was delayed arriving into London) and I was able to make my connection. Especially when we had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, there is no way I would have made my connection. While I know there are reasons for the delays, it is frustrating. After a long week of traveling and 21 hours of flying- ones patience does run out."
Pros: "I loved everything! Best flight experience in a long time. Really easy, on time, great window seat, thank you"
Cons: "Me probably. You guys were excellent!"
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "great stewardess"
Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "The first class seats on these newer 737-800s are VERY disappointing. Width is ok, but legroom is on par with economy expectations. With my tray out and the person in front of me reclined, I could barely see my laptop. There is also very little space under the seats, especially for the aisle seat."
Pros: "The seats were decent for a domestic flight. Everything was timely."
Cons: "More food. Better entertainment."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6 hours weeks before which made the return really inconvenient for my schedule. Then the flight was delayed on the day of the flight until the next day. I did not get to the hotel room until 3:30 AM- 3 hours sleep then back to airport only to have the flight delayed again."
Cons: "Flight attendant was very rude on Flight AA3451 on April 25th"
Pros: "Good flight with a little turbulence."
Cons: "Better entertainment options."
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth because the fligh had a lot of Sears availabke"
Cons: "Make AA a real earline to serve passengers not profits"
Pros: "Easy check in and Boarding"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Far and away the most uncomfortable and worst value-for-money international flight I've experienced. This plane is so old it should be put in a museum. The warm food was terrible and the non-hot food was completely frozen so even if I wanted to eat it, this wouldn't be possible. Individual seat in-flight entertainment screens have been the norm for many years, yet this plane had the community-style in-flight entertainment. Half of the time, the screens weren't working, which just made matters worse. The total lack of legroom and chair ergonomics made getting comfortable nearly impossible. I was literally in pain sitting in these seats. I live in Prague and visit family in the US often. This was my first experience with American Airlines' newer direct flight option from Prague to Philadelphia; based on the extreme discomfort of the inflight features and to top it off it was the highest price I've paid for a flight back home...(total lack of value for the money! )I would go out of my way to make sure I never take this route again."
Cons: "7pm flight, received flight delayed notification at 11am that day. How do you anticipate a delay 8 hours prior to a flight. Delay allowed me about 10 minutes to sprint through the lovely Charlotte airport. To finish off my trip, American Airlines manages to misplace my carry on that was required to be tagged and stowed. I handed it to the individual right outside the plane to be stowed. How does the bag not get in the same plane?!?"
Pros: "Once we were finally on the plane everything felt comfortable and looked newish."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO! The flight was delayed by 7 hours. We were told different stories Time and Time again by the ground crew. Either the plane was on the way or it was turning back, or it had landed or was perpetually 20 mins from landing. At one point, they did slip and admit that they actually had no way of actually tracking the plane, so everything they told us had been wild guesses about what had actually been happening! When some passengers asked to speak with a manager, we were told that the manager was not accepting calls at that time. After hours and hour and hours of delays and lies, they finally found a plane, but we still had to wait an hour for a crew as the original crew was now over their time limit. Once we were airborne, the flight was smooth and the newly cobbled together crew was nice. Zero mention or promise of reparations for the massive delay. AGAIN, DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO!"
Cons: "The Crew Tried to take us from our seats so they could sleep in our seats. They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."
Pros: "I took my girlfriend on her first airplane ride! The flight was bumpless from wheels to wheels. The Pilots did a fantastic job! Thank you so much for a remarkable first plane trip! THEN!!!! The have Buffalo Trace Bourbon! I mean.... what else do you need ?!"
Pros: "The employee who checked me in was very helpful - found my frequent flyer number for another airline and give me a free checked bag."
Pros: "Decent boarding group, same snacks, same flight attendants (who were very nice)"
Cons: "My only gripe is that paying for an assigned seat is only allowed 48 hours before takeoff and costs at least $30, twice what Spirit charges to allow you to select a seat during booking, so it is worse. No one watched us to ensure that we didn’t use the overhead bins (a stipulation of the fare) but we did comply anyway. We chose to take our chances and were assigned seats at the gate 16 rows apart and both in the middle seat."
Cons: "I didn’t make this flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it's not even delay, but the terrible incompetent unprofessional way this was handled."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating horrible"
Cons: "Unable to sleep on the redeye from Seattle to Philly owing to a loud, constant alarm for the entire flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Flight crew was kind and curtious."
Pros: "That I arrived to my destination alive."
Cons: "It was my first time taking Virgin America and I didn't know movies weren't free. I used to travel a lot and I've never had to pay for movies. I ended up watching 12 episodes of Big Bang Theory because it was the only free thing to watch that wasn't LinkedIn videos or Disney, which really sucked. Comfort level wasn't any better than any of the other airlines and service was the same as well. I've heard good things about Virgin but my experience was just mediocre."
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Ontime working airplane with good crew"
Cons: "Setting is crowed especially when person in front reclins entertainment does not support many android and no kindle device"
Cons: "The food was awful. Fish was rubbery and smelled bad, eggs were a gloppy mess, everything was too salty."
Pros: "Nice food service."
Cons: "It wasn't British Airways. I had to hurry to American after being told at the check it was a different airline."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful providing updates to our status. They moved us smoothly on and off the plane during the delay."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway for what seemed like hours. The initial boarding was confusing with multiple levels of priority boarding."
Cons: "No personal screens on each seat-,makes international flight very long."
Pros: "Staff was helpful. Trip was on time"
Cons: "I wish the aircraft was able to show movies."
Cons: "My flight was changed 3 times-- always pick a window seat and was changed to aisle seat. The attitude at the ticket counter was "you're lucky to get any seat", flight was overbooked, the boarding process and deplaning were absurd with all the people bringing on way too much carry on luggage !!! It takes almost 30 min to get off the plane!!"
Cons: "The stewardesses were gossiping in the back of the plane and we could all hear their complaints about the new uniform policy. They did not seem very happy to be there and there was no in flight entertainment. A total bummer."
Cons: "Fat ads sitting next to me should have purchased 2 seats"
Pros: "New plane, great entertainment. Good service! Clean plane ."
Pros: "Our extra leg room seating was fantastic. The crew was delightful."
Cons: "The entertainment was just okay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and the gates were so crowded. Plane was very crowded, my luggage almost went missing"
Cons: "America Airlines...worst service and just a horrible experience"
Pros: "We had a delay due to an equipment malfunction. They deboarded us so we didn't have to sit on a hot plane. That was greatly appreciated. The crew and gate personell in Cedar Rapids were very friendly and organized in getting us all back on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "We made up time in the air to Dallas. We arrived early and waited about 15min. Due to another plane being in our gate."
Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"
Pros: "Great to be home in time"
Cons: "On time arrival."
Pros: "Everything from ticketing to deplaning was smooth and professional."
Cons: "No problems at all."
Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."

Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"
Pros: "Easy connections, very timely and everything worked out great."
Cons: "Plane was full"
Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."
Pros: "We had a tail wind and the flight was super fast!"
Cons: "The were a lot of screaming babies around."
Pros: "Boarding seemed smother than usual. I had an issue with a large back pack that wouldn't fit in the overhead due to a smaller plane travelling to Houston from Des Moines, Flight attendant was extremely helpful as it was expensive camera equipment and was able to stow it so that i didn't have to check it at the door. Most appreciated their sensitivity."
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."
Cons: "They don't know their guidelines or policies"
Pros: "Flight left right on time and arrived to the destination early - which was great because i had an extremely short layover"
Pros: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "I loved it"
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "The snack"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."
Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"
Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Pros: "Quick ..."
Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."
Pros: "The flight was mercifully short and on time. I was very glad to get off."
Cons: "Weird boarding procedures at Houston where you have to wait in a giant holding pen and not allowed to go to your gate until it is almost ready for boarding. Rude United personnel to tell you about how that works. Flight was in a small regional jet where the overhead bins were tiny. Multiple screaming children In the row in front of me. Seats seemed small (though perhaps they are just the normal United small)."
Cons: "We waited an extra hour waiting for another passengers I got to Monterrey Mexico all late"
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and staff was friendly. I was in an emergency row so I had a little extra leg room in my middle seat. Also had wifi on this flight."
Cons: "Snacks need to be updated. I prefer the good old fashion pretzels, so maybe providing an option would be better."
Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."
