Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Pros: "The plane was newer and the flight itself was good"
Cons: "Poor service onboard. Flight attendants showed little care and were curt. Ordered halal meal but were given vegetarian. It was bland and tasteless. My wife ordered drinks that never came. The armrests were stationary adding to the discomfort. Unfortunate how the international service experience is so much worse than domestic."
Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."
Pros: "Great Movie selection!"
Pros: "Once inside the plane every thing was excellent. Very confortable. Great costumer service."
Cons: "They changed the gate it was unclear and hard to find someone to tell us where to go. Once we found someone the lady yelling at everyone where to go was very rude and rushed. Once we found the second gate the crew at the desk was very nice and helpful."
Pros: "The flight entertainment and crew were great. They had a lot of the latest movies available to watch, though I'm not sure you'd be able to watch if you didn't have your own headphones (I did). The crew were friendly and helpful. I got a cold cup of coffee when it should have been hot, and they corrected it immediately."
Cons: "They charge you for everything: sitting in an aisle or window seat ($15); checking one piece of luggage ($25); for food, even on a five hour flight, save for complementary snacks like a granola bar or pretzels. I paid $11 for a tiny sandwich (it fit in the palm of my already small hands). I will definitely get good at the airport next time. It may be just as expensive, but at least it will be filling."
Pros: "Smooth flight. On time and took me from 20 degrees to 80"

Cons: "What ever happened to a free drink on international flights ?"
Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "No TV for movies."
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: "I purchased round trip tickets to Cancun Mexico for under $400. And I received 1st class upgrades both ways. I could not be happier with my travel."

Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."

Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."

Cons: "On this flight everything was simply perfect."
Cons: "No tv"
Cons: "They pushed my flight forward 15 hours but didn't tell me until five hours before my flight. Not only that but they didn't change the second leg of my trip so I was on the phone for an hour trying to straighten it out. Very stressful."
Pros: "Row 6 plenty of space"
Pros: "None of the above. Ground crew that does not really understand the costumer."

Pros: "excellent atention"
Cons: "With one hour to go, a man in my row in the AMPlus section (which costs extra for a bit more comfort in economy) was joined by his companion who started the flight in the back, the basic economy fare which does not cost extra.. I didn’t appreciate the fact that she got to sit up front without paying and that the AeroMexico crew did nothing to call her out or send her back. The lesson: Don’t pay the extra money for AM Plus. Just wait until no one is watching and move up front. No one cares—except your fellow passengers who paid for the added comfort."
Pros: "They were pretty much organized."
Cons: "The food. Some Mexican touch could be appreciated."
Pros: "Puntualidad y Servicio."

Cons: "Not complain. Aeromexico better to fly."
Cons: "Every time I would fly out in Aeromexico we never payed for luggage I don’t know why they changed their policy to charge for every bag."

Pros: "The smooth ride and the crew"
Cons: "Waiting for the luggage for so long even though I was flying class premier"
Pros: "THE ATTENTION WAS EXCELENT . NOT DELAYES, EVETHING WAS GOOD LETICIA ESPINAL"
Cons: "NOTHING Ok...."
Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, old plane that was technologically outdated and uncomfortable, surly crew that seemed put out by the simplest requests, late arrival."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about Aeromexico service."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Never in my life have I been treated this disrespectful. I felt very offended by the staffs attitude and actions to the point I felt discriminated because of my religion. Yearly my church flys with Aeromexico to Mexico and I've never had a problem but this year I felt very targeted . As I was checking in they told me that my luggage was 2 pounds over the weight they direct us to have it so the employee told us to go and take some items out , we moved from the line and he 'shooed' us away saying "no go all the way back" we did and when we tried to go back to check in another employee cut me off from going in line and told us she didn't care for what I had to say and to return to the back of the line. At this point I was already worked up from their behavior and my mother whom was traveling with me tried to calm me down. As we get to the from of the line the SAME guy who 'shooed' us had a customer who had an over weight luggage , BUT let him take out item right there and then with his luggage on the scale . Well my mother got upset because we didn't know what it consisted of to have that privilege. We get attended by the employee who cut me off and my luggage was still 1 pound over the weight limit and she instructed us to get out and take items out , we expressed to her that it wasn't fair how other people who were flying got the advantage of just doing it there and we asked why . She denied ever doing that and said to go with the employee who did that because she refused to attend us . We asked another employee if we could speak to a supervisor and we were being persisted but she would ignore us and walk away from us . We couldn't believe how badly they were treating us. So we then went on to go with the employee who 'shooed' my mother and I and asked him why did he give special privileges to other people flying and was discriminated us , he literally told us "what discrimination? You guys need to relax. What do you want? Do you want me to attend you or what? I have other people waiting" he checked us in and NEVER saw or spoke to a supervisor . We will def never be flying with them again ."
Pros: "Inside the plane the food (COLD SANDWICH) has a horrible and monotonous taste . Outside the plane the service is poor. You meet aggressive people without any clue of courtesy. I saw disable passenger without any attendance when wheelchair was requested.They don't have any idea that you are part of a business industry with many competitors. I will never recommend in my community to use your services. You are the worse of the third world."
Cons: "I experience an incident that affected emotionally my family. One hour after depart from Mexico City, the fly attendance announce that we need to land in Guadalajara for safety/security reason. You removed a youth passenger without any strong and fair reason, because he was unlucky this day: He was accommodated together with 2 members of a middle east family that was logically to be filled by the 3. he touch friendly the kid near him and his father that was in different place??? react negative against this normal gesture of the youth passenger. Why you didn't put the entire family together from the beginning?"

Cons: "After the announcement at the gate to prepare to board, we went to wait on line (Group 2). However boarding did not begin until more than 45 minutes later.

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "Retra Retraso de 2 hrs sin ningúna explicacion"
Cons: "The counter attendant and supervisor of aeromexico in lima peru wouldn't let us check in because according to her we had too many carry ons. She had us there for more than an hour and i keot saying we are going to miss our flight . She wanted to charge us for an extra bag to put in the documented baggage. So not fair. Aeromexico is the worst! Do not flight with them they will find a way to make your life hell. At the end i showed the lady what the website said and she kind of changed her mind and let us go."

Pros: "Crew was helpful and fine."

Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Pros: "The crew was great and provided a quiet environment for the red eye flight."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be reevaluated. Perhaps the plane should be boarded from the rear to the front or from window to aisle seat. These suggestions would streamline the boarding process."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Extremely cramped, surly flight attendants, and terrible food."
Cons: "Check in at originating and connecting flight very difficult. American Airlines could not find reservation on British Airways system. Was asked multiple times if I truly was booked on the flight. Four+ hour delay due to mechanical issues, delayed by union issues."

Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "Frequent updates on lightning in the area ( causing delays). Full service on board while we were wIting for weather to clear. Very good i flight service."

Cons: "see above."

Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Seats are small and not ergonomic"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Cons: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"
Cons: "Late to Tulsa again.l"
Pros: "The flight was 30 minutes faster than initially scheduled. It was great."
Cons: "The flight left 10 minutes late, but on my positive comments, this was remedied in the end."
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Cons: "I do not like that I am missed my flight and got stuck in a city without any re-embersement. I usually use United, but decided to use American Airlines this time. Sleeping in an airport tonight. Thanks."
Pros: "Exit row seat very roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Flight from ORD to LGA delayed even though the plane was already at the gate in ORD. No announcement explaining why it was delayed. What was worse was that after landing at LGA, baggage tagged as Priority did not come out first, it came out much later - after numerous non-priority baggage came out. This is not the first time this has happened at LGA. What's the point of tagging it as Priority if it won't be handled that way?"
Pros: "The time of the flights were very good- both departure and arrival"
Cons: "On the departure flight, the flight attendants in economy kept hitting the seats each and everyone they brought out food and drink trolleys."
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
Pros: "The flight was painfully uncomfortable for me, as a tall and not particularly small person. I should have known better than to take the window seat (Orlando to DC was painfully uncomfortable because I just don't fit in those seats). The in-flight service was good, but I was glad when this flight was over."
Cons: "Mentioned above"
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "Very quick connection"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline."
Pros: "Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Tailwinds in our favor cut our flight down by an hour! Check in and boarding was super easy!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, energetic, educational and very helpful"
Cons: "Des moines airplanes seem to be the left overs. Old and outdated."
Pros: "At 10 pm no one would help to get a room to spend the night. No vouchers. No help for a mother with infant. Had to find hotel on own."
Cons: "See above. Horrible. Absolutely horrible experience."
Cons: "AC lost one of our suitcases and it did not arrive until late afternoon of the next day. Filled out a missing luggage report."
Cons: "Check in was just awful. Then a three hour delay and no one was forthcoming."
Cons: "They didn’t put enough fuel in the tank and the pilot only noticed when we were next in line to take-off so that led to a 30 minute delay. Some terrible seat designer put the call button and light control on the armrest exactly where your elbow rests so every few seconds you would here a call bell."
Cons: "Will never book a trip with you"
Pros: "The connecting flight was with air Canada. In general the flight was fine. Landed on a Saturday afternoon."
Cons: "What was not fine was the horror at the other end when air Canada lost my bag (which had my suit and prescriptions) and couldn't tell me where it was or when it would be delivered for over two days of calling between their service centre and one the ground people at Boston. The call centre was in India, no one in Boston would tell them what was going on. It should not take three days to sort, when the bag had actually been sent on the next flight (on Saturday evening) after the one I took. Fortunately, was able to borrow BP medication from a relative and ultimately had to spend money to buy new suit and clothes before bag finally appeared because I had business meetings for which I needed appropriate attire. Every other airline I gave flown where my bag was delayed was always delivered in 24 hours. This was not Brussels airlines fault, it was the fault of air Canada."
Cons: "2 hours delayed and we waited 45 minutes for our luggage to arrive."
Cons: "I don’t like the head games air Canada plays when they know the flight is probably not going to leave for three hours and they purposely don’t update the flight details. Only update every 20 minutes for a three hour delay...."
Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"
Cons: "I was unable to board because I didn't have an ETA - I was unaware of this requirement until check in. I was only transiting thru Canada - the ground staff were horrible."
Pros: "Flight crew attitude was excellent, comfort in premium class was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment, choice very limited, bring your own. Space for carry on luggage limited. They should not allow passengers to have more than 1 carry on."
Cons: "Crew never respond to the bells"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Checked carry on from Montreal to RDU. Bag was never entered in the system (customer service at Toronto stop could not find record for the claim tag we were given), which caused a problem with customs. Bag did arrive with rest of luggage at destination, however."
Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"
Pros: "There were no issues on this flight. My screen worked and the flight was ok."
Pros: "Spacious seating. Attentive Stewardesses. Bathroom located close to seating area but was separated by the galley. That was a plus - no odor, no long lines by your seat."
Cons: "Use of ipads for entertainment rather than installed screens"
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean. Convenient connecting gates. Flight duration."
Cons: "- Meals sold in flight - Extremely poor inflight entertainment - Flight delayed no real explanation provided"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "It took two air hostesses two hours to service the entire cabin. There is a training issue. I would not fly air canada again."
Pros: "Ludovic was fantastic!"
Cons: "We were disappointed we couldn't order from the flight menu."
Pros: "The food was great, service was excellent, and entertainment selection was awesome."
Cons: "Would've appreciated more legroom, but the same can be said for just about any airline."
Cons: "There was no wifi available on the flight from Montreal to Vancouver."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system had ads. Too many."
Cons: "After a late flight from Halifax, found out that we had been bumped off our scheduled flight to Kingston. The next flight was more than three hours later - and this despite looking at our aircraft for another 10 minutes before it left the gate. We were told that the gate had been closed despite six of us on the same connection. When we asked about supper, we were given a $10 coupon - had some difficulty finding a place for dinner under $10 at Pearson."
Pros: "Flight was on time, direct, and uneventful."
Cons: "The seats are very tight. They ran out of the lower priced drinks. No leg room."
Pros: "Friendly staff Seats are good enough And quite often ask if you need water"
Cons: "Your small plane vibarates to much. Causing itchy feet and overall discomfort. And your snack choices are not gluten free friendly. I was asked to put carry on under. Didn't mind doing that. But came home to find the front pocket torn of my carry on. Then make it to hard to to find help about it."
Pros: "Once we got underway it was fine."
Cons: "6 hrs delay! The flight delays were mostly unannounced and we were sent from gate to gate multiple times without explanation of what was happening. We arrived at 3am."
Pros: "They weigh every little carry on even little backpacks. My Dad who is 83 had very hard time since he had one pound over. Max weigh you can in your carry on is 22 pound. Extremely money hungry Air Line. I would avoid at any cost."
Pros: "All passengers and crew arrived alive. Flight attendants were very helpful and nice. Price for this trip is much cheaper than comparable flights with other airlines."
Cons: "Extra charge for any checked bags at all is awful. Couldn't get a meal on flight, even for a price. Just miserable tiny snacks. Flight left late and arrived late, apparently because schedulers didn't bother to make allowances for deicing at previous stop. In-flight Air Canada app didn't work either on my ipAD OR MY LAPTOP."
Cons: "The flight attendants were jerks. Why can't I listen to my headphones before takeoff? Because of the safety speech? Are deaf people not allowed to fly? I was asked to take my headphones off during the safety speech, which I did. I put them back on after the speech and was yelled at. The lady in front of me had a dog. The lady across from me was talking on her cell phone. And the kids behind me were playing games on their iPad with no headphones and the sound on. No one said anything to them. Screw this airline."
Pros: "Courteous service"
Cons: "Seats so close should not be able to recline in someone's lap, makes it for a very uncomfortable ride. Not every passenger cares about the comfort of others. Therefore if seating have to be that close together they should not be able to recline. Our flight got in at 1am and because a family member needs assistance we were told to wait by some parked golf carts and someone would be right over to assist, we waited as we saw all passengers walk by and flight crew and no one showed. Then decided to slowly start walking and after awhile an angel of the airport staff, I wish I got her name to thank her saw our struggling through and quickly ran to grab a wheelchair and assisted us right to our shuttle service.These are the things that make airport service more pleasant, for such a state of the art airport the experience for passengers should run a little smoother and assistance to those that need it should be readily available. Rose"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Constant communication from Air Canada crew. I like that."
Cons: "Talked to the masses like they were simpleton. They were. So it worked out."
Cons: "I found the crew members more involved in there own personal conversations rather than the guests.... Trying to get there attention was virtually impossible...."
Pros: "The one good thing about this flight was it wasn't fully booked, so I managed to get an entire row to myself, that and the food wasn't bad, and movie selection was alright."
Cons: "There were major delays taking off, and landing. I was supposed to have about a 3 hour layover in Toronto, due to multiple delays, flight plan changes, and mechanical failures I ended up getting booted from the 2nd leg of the flight, and having to spend an unanticipated night in Toronto. To begin, my 3pm flight from Seoul to Toronto was delayed to 6pm (the day before the flight was even scheduled, and for no apparent reason.) I wasn't even notified of this change, the only reason I found out was I tried checking in online the afternoon of the day before my flight (only because I remembered to do so myself, never received a check in reminder notice) and found out of the change. So my connecting flight had been bumped, and my ETA to my destination changed. This wasn't terrible, just an annoyance. Second, the flight was stuck at the departure gate for over an our. I'm not 100% sure why, however, after delay after delay, and then a flight plan change, we finally took off over an hour late, this too was was an annoyance, an nothing notable. It wasn't until we landed, where we were delayed on the tarmac for yet over another hour, due to mechanical issues that was the problem. We were stuck for about an hour (the pilot promising we'd be moving in "just 5 minutes", every 10-15 minutes) before the pilot decided to order buses to unload us, to then turn them away once they arrived so that way we could get towed to the gate. It then took an additional 40 minutes for the plane to get hitched, and towed to the gate. Once we arrived at the gate, I tried running through the airport to catch my connecting flight (which I had 10 minutes till boarding, and 40 minutes till departure) only to find out that I had been bumped from my connecting flight (despite having no checked baggage) and would have to stay the night in Toronto. Apparently this is not a rare occurrence for Air Canada to screw up flights. There were other people both on other original fights, as well as mine who were bumped from their connecting flights to various destinations, as well as having lost luggage. Again, individually these weren't exactly huge issues, collectively, they're the reason this has probably been my first and last time flying Air Canada."
Pros: "Nice interior. Free movies."
Cons: "Air Canada is always delayed."
Pros: "1/2 hour late in departing. 2 1/2 hours. Sitting on Tarmac on flight to Toronto. Too crowded on plane"
Pros: "Service on the flight is always good and the transfer in Toronto was seamless."
Cons: "The departure area in Boston is dreadful. no room and no amenities. Straight out of the 60's."
Cons: "on march 13/ 2016 booked my tickets on kayak.com so end up getting it with vayama.on july 28 missed my flight for a family raison called vayama and explained the situation they said they will help me just they need to confirm with the airlines (air canada) and they will give me new tickets.no body called me back ,called air canada said: we have ticket but you need to get it from vayama.called vayama again he said sorry about that i will let everyone know and he promise me that i will get help a.s.a.p.did't hear from them left with my wife and two kids in morocco for a week end up buying new tickets from laufthansa."
Cons: "Absolute joke of an airline with zero customer service. I would never travel with them again and would recommend anyone else not too."
Pros: "Crew was late on first leg delayed 3 hours than nobody to close the cabin door from outside ,missed connecting flight. Than did not have inventory in Chicago to out up in hotel had to pay out of my pocket and to this day can't get hold of customer service to get claim resolved. Sent through email and nothing. Even went down to my airport in Phoenix to speak and no help. Also lost bag as well. Which later found by united not air Canada. Unbelievable"
Pros: "Great, new aircraft, entertainment system much improved"
Cons: "Business class boarding was slow, behind the people pretending to need advance boarding (but who recover on the plane and spring to their feet (vs waiting for assistance) at the destination and charge off unassisted. AC is pinching pennies (e.g., to save 2 cents/breakfast they omit the tomato relish that used to keep the omelette from seeming dry)."
Cons: "* Worst food I have ever had on a plane. The crew did not even know what was in some of the food, which is not comforting if you have allergies. * Entertainment system earphones were so bad they were unusable."
Pros: "On time, courteous, great movie selection for the very long flight. Food was decent."
Cons: "Crew could have been friendlier, food was lacking, flight left an hour late."
Pros: "Everyone was super polite"
Pros: "Friendly crew very helpful. Not as loud as the last flight."
Cons: "So many people crammed into a small space. Needed more leg room and shoulder room."
Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Was not told a transit visa was necessary to fly through Canada. Denied boarding in Nairobi on way over and had to book on another airline."
Pros: "Most things where fine. Slight delay in boarding but still made our connection."
Cons: "Tried to signal stewards for another beverage but got no response. Lack of customer service."
Pros: "Crew was kind and thorough but gate agent was rude to me and others. Very snippy and acted as if I was bothering her when I asked a question."
Cons: "My seat was broken. Bottom was completely collapsed. 12B So hot and stuffy as well."
Pros: "Drinks and snacks were fine.. Entertainment OK"
Cons: "Flight was 40 mins late. Plane was older than Noah's Ark."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating in light of the maintenance delay. Especially for those of us with small children."
Cons: "Look, delays suck. We fly about only once a year, and we ALWAYS have a delay. ALWAYS. Air traffic control at Newark will delay a flight for a hangnail."
Pros: "The crew was fine"
Cons: "The flight was super delayed"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi but swayback said Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Easy boarding, easy flight"
Cons: "Food served a little earlier, with beverages first. There was also buzzing in the headset when I was watching a movie."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! Friendly and attentive!!"
Cons: "More snack options other than pretzels would’ve been nice."
Pros: "I enjoyed purchasing a full fare first class ticket for my vacation"
Cons: "I didn’t like being bumped off my flight and being placed on a later flight in coach section. No refund for lesser service."
Pros: "Aircraft well laid out."
Cons: "Full flight snd everyone seemed to have a carry on bag.."
Cons: "Delayed from another flight but this crew tried their best to get us up in the air"
Pros: "The flights were on time"
Cons: "Packed together like animals on the way to the slaughterhouse for a 6 hour flight. And they charge for the tiny screen entertainment. They will happily allow you to swipe your credit card. Fly Jet Blue if you can- extra space between seats, free entertainment, comfortable flights."
Pros: "Good crew and good flight. Good for adjustment to the timezone as well."
Cons: "Food really sucks."
Cons: "The crew was the worst ever!!! Very rude ladies who spent more time on their phones then serving the customers. They sucked"
Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."
Pros: "Coffee was delicious. No imagination with the snack of pretzels."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "For connecting flights I believe that those who are rushing to connect should be let out first."
Pros: "Nice crew and smooth travels. Good snacks and coffee."
Cons: "No drop down or seat screens."
Pros: "Everybody was very nice and the woman at the gate was very efficient at getting everyone assigned and through and up to date."
Cons: "Quarters were just very cramped. The seat wasn't quite padded enough so my hips began to hurt."
Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "No internet available without paying and no charging station available in flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "Pilot flew over Death Valley National Park."
Cons: "you shouldn't have to pay extra to pick your own seat how ridiculous redeye flights are the worst"
Pros: "It was fine."
Pros: "Nothing really. I'm glad Delta, Virgin, and Southwest have direct flies now so I don't have to deal with the worst airline in the history of humanity,"
Cons: "The worst support and irresponsible system canceling my seat and no support"
Pros: "Getting off the hot tin can!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because the AC was not working right. It never really cooled down much during the flight. They need to get their act together"
Cons: "Very scary flight"
Cons: "I was delayed each direction :/"
Cons: "The united staff kept skipping the lines to drop off the bags. They didn't care when multiple people in line said they were skipping people. After paying once for my checked bag they tried to make me pay again. Asked to see in writing what they were trying to explain and the manager couldn't do it. They never gave me my ticket stub for my checked bag. So if it hadn't arrived I wouldn't have had anyway to find it. Very disappointing staff in SFO. Seemed aa if no one at SFO was happy to be working there or even worse didnt know what to do most of the time. VERY different than the DEN united experience."
Pros: "The staff gave out free snacks and were friendly"
Cons: "Too loud and the delay was an inconvenience"
Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."
Pros: "Plane was 1/2 full; almost all tourists. Clean and ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Snacks are really weak - and I paid for them!"
Pros: "Same exact as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "The seats and leg room are awful"
Pros: "I loved how easy it was to book the flight."
Cons: "I cancelled my flight within 24hrs and received no refund because I booked through priceline. However, there was no restriction or clause listed on the ticket stating that I had to cancel through priceline also. It really should not matter who I cancelled through, if I canceled within 24hrs the refund should be given. Also, the debits from my account said United as well as priceline taking me to United's web page to make the purchase. So of course one would think cancelling through United's site is appropriate. I'm very disappointed in United and will consider all other options (Airlines) before booking with them again. PS - United customer gave me the run around for 3 days knowing that it was their policy and they were the company who's keeping my money. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Nice comfortable seating. Fell straight to sleep"
Pros: "I like everything!!everyone was so nice that it makes you feel so welcome and that you're like in home!!!"
Pros: "First of all, I was excited to get to Puerto Vallarta! Unfortunately, we had a delay due to a child who got sick as the plane was backing from the gate. The crew was fantastic and had paramedics load the plane to check on toddler. The family deboarded and United crew cleaned the throw up. The pilots kept the passengers informed and we proceeded with the flight. The flight attendants were fantastic, particularly the brunette attendant who remembered me from a previous flight. Best flight attendant ever!! Thank you United!!!"
Pros: "Left out of Houston a hour late."
Pros: "I arrived at the aurport 1 hr 20 mins before flight - plenty if time to check in and make it to gate at a small airport ad Newark is. Wanted to check in online - the United System did not allow me to. Had to wait in line - long line due to holidays. I raised my hand and asked for assistance given the impending 1 hr cut off time for check in. Was told I should go to the special assustance line. Well, guess what - that line which was meant to be express service for fliers with special situations was moving with the speed of a tortoise - slower than the general line. Only 2 flight assistants were servicing, both incredibly slow. When asked politely that I need special assistance as I was approaching the 1 hr cut iff fir checkin, the United lady yelled at me instead of speeding up her slow motion. Bottom line, I missed my flight on a tiny airport dedpite arriving 1 hr 20 mins before flight. Had to wait 14 hrs overnight at the airport to catch the next flight because the United Airlines personnel are lazy, slow, inefficient, rude and no customer oriented. Terrible service."
Pros: "They kept us well hydrated"
Cons: "How far I had to get to me next flight in Chicago"
Cons: "The flight I purchased was over booked. I had to leave a friend behind and travel on my own. I will never use United Airlines again."
Cons: "The stewardess was very hard to understand in English."
Pros: "It was a great experience overall"
Pros: "The on board crew did a good job but didn't have much to offer us."
Cons: "No more seat back pocket. Its aolid plastic now & nothing fits. No meal service on a 4 hour flight. That's ridiculous. No check in counter. Just a sea of people fighting for kiosks to self check in. Bad enough there's no more ticket agents, they could at least have an organized line."
Cons: "Had to take a different flight"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing, the flight was cancelled and the airline offered little or no assistance."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and we needed to return home for work the next day. It was the last flight out so we asked about a ground transportation voucher. The telephone agent told us to see the customer service rep at the terminal counter. After waiting inline for almost 45 minutes we asked an agent who was standing there about a voucher. She checked with a supervisor and said they would not provide them, we would have to wait to see an agent. Rather than miss the next bus to be delayed another 2 hours waiting for someone to tell us they wouldn't do anything for us, we left the line and purchased bus tickets. We had to pick up our luggage at the airport because we 'missed' our flight rather having it delivered. We understand flight cancelations but at no time during the process, especially at the airport, did we ever get the impression that anyone cared about us or what happened to us. We will avoid this airline."
Pros: "The O'Hare bathrooms, which I shaved in? Everything else about the flights and the airports were awful, like of course"
Cons: "My flight was scheduled to leave at 4:51 pm. I arrived at the airport 2 and a half hours before my flight was to leave and I read the departure board to see that the flight was delayed due to maintenance. Then I saw that it was delayed again because we were waiting for a flight coming in from the Bahamas. Well my flight didn't take off until about 7:30 pm. I arrived in Denver around 10:00 pm which made me miss my shuttle to the Springs. I am a diabetic and was in need of my medication so I needed to get home. I spent extra money to take a bus to downtown Denver and a grayhound bus to the springs and a cab to my home. So my trip cost my an extra $55.00 dollars I didn't have. I have always taken United but after this experience, I will never again take United."
Pros: "To say, its been over 20 years since I've flown, everything was just fine."
