i arrived alive

My flight was delayed on the way to Puerto Plata on 9/9 which made me miss an entire day and I was billed for a stay at the resort. I was booked to a crappy room in MIA that I had to get changed to another hotel. THEN my departing flight from Puerto Plata back to the US was delayed 2 plus hours (as was the first flight) due to a flat tire that had to be replaced. I missed my connecting flight and had to be placed on the next flight to DCA which was the last flight. This experience was the worst. I do not have a favorable opinion of American, of which I have flown this airline for years.

I only had an hour to catch this flight because my flight from Vienna to Chicago was half hour late to park at the gate, and was scrambling in the busy O'Hare airport to go through passport check, customs, catching the train to go from Terminal 5 to 2, passing through security (YET AGAIN!!!) and running to my gate They didn't even offer some water Took longer than usual to get our luggage

Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas.

PLane ride was very pleasant other than having to sit on tarmac for 35 minutes before flight because of flight back up.

Sitting on the tarmac for almost 40 minutes due to busy traffic. There were 17 planes in front of us!!! I just don’t understand how that happens. And if they know that In advance why can’t they figure out system to let people stay at gate as long as possible. There must be way to develop a queue system that doesn’t force people to board unnecessarily. Or at least stay at gate so people can use restroom. Frustrating!!!

This was a comedy of errors of United being terrible at their own airport. The first plane essentially had a check engine light that they couldn’t figure out. Finally got us a second plane but then got delayed because they couldn’t get catering to come service the plane. The food on the plane looked like it has sat outside for hours. The oils in the hummus and bruschetta has seperated. Good try United but if you can’t get it right at your base how do you expect to get it right anywhere else.

Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks.

These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
