Pros: "the video controller in the headrest of the seat ahead of me. you could see the flight pattern, speed, temperature outside and other specs, which were interesting."
Cons: "once again, the delta crew does not maintain their planes properly. during the taxi stage to get to the airway to lift off, there was a horrendous growling sound coming from the plane............seems like their hydraulic system is not maintained very well at all and it made a howling sound throughout the plane all the way to take off! we were wondering if there was something wrong with the plane."
Pros: "Crew"

Cons: "No problems at all!"

Cons: "See above"
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: "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."
Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
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."

Plane was EXCEPTIONAL CLEAN. SEATS SPACIOUS. CREW FRIENDLY, EFFIVIENT. WELL GROOMED

Noisy squeaky airplane. But smooth flight and arrived early.

The lady at the check in desk never asked me if I was first class or main cabin. Just assumed I was main cabin. So they almost made me check my carry on until I showed my boarding pass. Other than that, everything was great. Smooth flight flight attendants were very nice

Pros: "yes, no on sat on my row coming or going"
Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"
Cons: "Social distancing"

Pros: "awesome"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."

Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"
Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"
Cons: "They lost my bag in my layover at DCA. Even with a first class orange tag and 1:10 layover, they didn’t transfer the bag between planes on a Thursday evening. The planes were probably 300 feet away. Clearly their entire luggage tracking systems at DCA are broken. Even with 1:00 connections at O'Hare, DFW, PHL, my luggage has not gotten delayed."
Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"

Pros: "On time . No significant delays cost of ticket low."
Cons: "Tiny plane with small seats never that comfortable."
Cons: "rerouted through Philadelphia."
Pros: "Fine for a domestic flight. Normally, American Airlines offer a small snack to go with the drinks. But on this particular flight, they went the United way and offered nothing but drinks. Crew was pleasant enough during the flight, although they didn't greet half of the passengers entering or exiting the plane."
Cons: "Flight was a little late taking off and therefore getting to Denver. But there was no announcement about it. There was one announcement from the captain, but it was so soft that I couldn't hear anything. Upon landing and arriving at the gate, we stood there for a while with no lights on and seatbelt sign on, but no explanation of what was going on. There was no welcome to Denver message either. Maybe their announcement system was down."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "We found the chart listing gate where we should go. We went there. Told the last listed flight was late so stayed there. With no announcement the gate board listed a different flight. We asked and was told gate was changed. What a surprise, Went to the info board and had to RUN to our new gate. Barely made it on time. This is awful communication."
Pros: "Because he flight wasn’t full, the seat next to me wasn’t occupied, giving me a bit more space."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight was delayed almost two hours."
Pros: "Great crew very friendly"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "Uneventful, on time, boarded fast."
Cons: "Just an observation, as soon as the plane stops and the fasten seatbelt sign turns off, the first people to stand are all the older white men on the flight. Never noticed that before but I'm sure it's true on most flights. Check your privilege."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived earlier than expected. Great job by the flight attendants as well! I thoroughly enjoyed my flight back home."
Pros: "Smooth and quick flight"
Cons: "Warm, no refreshments"
Pros: "Just a normal flight in a cramped airplane"

Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Cons: "."
Cons: "The stewardesses repeatedly rammed their cart into my seat. They were so rude. it was appalling. I will never fly american airlines again"
Pros: "Business seats comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was friendly. Not always professional."
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"

Flight delayed 1.5 hours.

Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient, the plane was really clean."
Cons: "It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, and if at least water was served (even if snacks and other drinks cost money)."

Cons: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."

Cons: "They didn’t have a WiFi on for the plan I couldn’t use my phone at all"

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."
Pros: "2 hours and one flight. Done!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "All of the hidden fees. I was initially charged more than $200 over the price I was quoted on Kayak.com and then had to pay an extra $45 to bring 1 carry-on each. I do not plan to use Kayak.com again for these reasons and will not recommend this site to anyone"
Pros: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."
Pros: "Everything was great during the flight but..."
Cons: "We were delayed over 7 hours, with only a $50 dollar future airline credit and an $8 meal voucher. That's not nearly enough for that kind of headache. It was 2 am before we arrived at our hotel."
Pros: "the fare"
Cons: "the service - departure gates completely understaffed, no allegiant gate agent or staff in sight, only subcontractors and 2 that had to run 4 gates. Flight itself was fine."
Pros: "At least I arrived to Oakland eventually. A one hour flight turned into a 7 hour wait and flight"
Cons: "7 hours from Vegas to Oakland. I could have driven. I deserve a reufind voucher"
Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite. One in particular expressed a great sense of humor throughout the flight and had a great rapport w/ passengers. Flight was on-time. Fare was $111 compared to around $375 to Orlando. I was able to fit this flight into my scheduled so saved the company $$."
Cons: "Can't blame Allegiant for a noisy child, but there was a child across the aisle from me who shrieked and talked loudly THE WHOLE FLIGHT. I was trying to sleep and was NOT pleased. I like a good fare, but selling a can of Coke on the flight for $2 seems a bit extreme. Glad there are cut-rate airlines out there as an option, but I won't be flying them any more than necessary."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."

Cons: "Seating is kind of cramped. More legroom would be appreciated."
Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"
Cons: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."
Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."
Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."

Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of the airline"
Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"
Cons: "Being 6'6" on a super small plane is never too much fun"
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."

Pros: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Cons: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"
Pros: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The over all experience"
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"
Cons: "The snack"
Pros: "personal service"
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?"
Cons: "Nothing was fine"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "I cancelled this flight.....not sure why Kayak keeps sending me these emails."
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: "The amount of leg room"
Cons: "Snacks are shrinking"
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
