Pros: "Fast and efficient"

Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Crying child but I understand has nothing to do with the airline."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"

Cons: "I couldn’t watch a movie and I couldn’t fall asleep because the the person in front of me had a light on."

Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."
Cons: "Everything was great today."
Pros: "Very comfortable and great crew."
Pros: "Good flight no problems with boarding and take off"
Cons: "No blankets, it was cold and it was a 4.5 hr trip"
Pros: "Could not use the bathroom"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Cons: "Two out of three flights were delayed, customers service of the flight operated by Delta airlines is a nightmare and on top of it 2hours and 40min delayed. No drinks, no snacks, nothing."
Cons: "Late taking off, and then unable to get to gate on arrival"
Pros: "Nice smooth, quick flight"
Pros: "Every thing except food!"
Cons: "Not enough food provided by airline!"
Pros: "We had to have the plane de-iced before we left but we still arrived in Houston earlier than originally planned. The flight was smooth and quick and with a flight that wasn't packed full I was very comfortable without a seat mate."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Average crew. The seat became comfortable after complaining that the one I requested was not noted on passenger request or should I say begging for the request."
Cons: "Listen to the passenger."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then stuck on runway for over an hour. No air at 3 am"
Cons: "Has been sitting in hot airplane on runway for over an hour with no reasonable updates when we finally get out"
Cons: "The crew was not friendly. Rude tone."
Cons: "Because of 12 hr between original flight and this flight, we drive"
Pros: "Nice crew!"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Only thing that was good was tail wind."
Cons: "The plane was so small and tight. And they sat me next to 260lbs x football player in this tiny plane. Not really your fault but a plane that size is just too small esp when your neighbor is double your size."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed then we had to spend the night in Dallas."
Cons: "No legroom in 17 E"
Pros: "Crew members. After a long time I got to see some friendly cabin crew members."
Cons: "Boarding was little delayed. But that's alright."
Cons: "I could not get the Wi-Fi to work even though I paid for 24 hours of it there was a different Wi-Fi Carrier on this flight than the flight from Munich to Philadelphia, he did not recognize me and even the free shows I could not get to work it had 3 different site said it told me the log in to in none of them work on my cell."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Once aboard, LATAM is actually quite impressive. The logistical part of the company is horrendous, but the service onboard is exemplar."
Cons: "LATAM changed my itinerary without my authorization and despite my clear verbal directions to NOT change it. The airline took directions from a corrupt official with the Colombian immigration office and cancelled my return flights. I was forced to purchase an additional ticket, travel on and separate flight from my wife and children. I then had to spend several hours waiting to resolve the case in person. The customer service at LATAM is a joke. If I'd received this treatment in the United States, I would have filed a lawsuit for their infringement on my rights and collaboration with the discriminatory practices of the Colombian immigration office in Bogota."
Cons: "This was my final connection from a long flight, we did a line to check in and get our boarding passes, when we got to the gate I found out I didn’t have a seat number asigned but husband did, they gave me one there but of course it was not next to my husband, it was the last seat available at the end next to restroom. The smell coming out from the it was so disgusting even before th first person went in, they should do something to improve the cleaness in the restroom between flights. It would probably take them 30 more minutes to do so, and I would not mind waiting for it even if this was my final flight after 15+ hours."
Cons: "I STILL HAVE NOT LEFT RIC!!!!"
Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "There seemed to be some passive aggressiveness present on the flight to Houston. Passengers seemed to be defying in small ways orders from the staff, standing etc. The staff responded quite severely in my opinion, repeating the safety video to everyone’s annoyance because some passengers were talking out loud."
Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"
Pros: "Bad bad"
Cons: "Bad bad"
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "Delayed, old aircraft, no food, no entertainment"
Pros: "Not much, the flight attendants were fine"
Cons: "They boarded the plane for the ‘on-time departure’ scam, then proceeded to do maintenance for 30 minutes, then when you think your on your way we wait another 15 minutes for takeoff. We spent more time sitting still than we did in motion. Horrible."
Cons: "Delayed 2hrs"
Pros: "Left close to time and arrived early"
Cons: "Wifi was offered, but could not get it connected."
Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."
Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight!"
Cons: "Missed flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "It was a small plane so I didn't expect much. The attendants were a little disconnected for it being a three hour flight."
Pros: "Seats were better padded than that of the previous flight. There was sufficient leg room for a short flight. Seats actually allowed for passengers to adjust back of seats."
Cons: "Space is very limited between neighborning seats."
Cons: "When the flight was on time, we learned it was overbooked. Agents stated that if people would not willingly accept their offer to fly at a later time random people would be denied boarding. This was a stressful element as there was no other flight that could make me arrive on time. Plus, threatening to deny boarding to paying customers for airline related overbooking does not seem like a fair or good business practice. Then there were mechanical issue with the plane. After waiting over an hour for repairs they realized they needed a new air craft. This further delayed the flight. Not only was the flight extremely delayed at this pint but throughout the waiting time we were given very little information and were constantly told they couldn't give us an approximate time of departure. This was extremely rude and makes the experience of dealing with a delay even worse. I would suggest giving us more information about what is happening. Saying we don't know when the flight will leave is just unacceptable. To make matters even worse after we were finally boarded we had to wait an additional 40 minutes sitting inside the plane while they boarded refreshments! I know there are delays in flights but this same thing happened to my flight on my way to Paris and it caused me to miss my international connection and had to be re-routed."
Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Cabin was cold and no blankets available."
Pros: "Everythinf was great, First time flying with them and I would do it again."

Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed my connection and was told I would have to spend the night in Philly."
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."
Cons: "Carry On : crew did not help me find a spot for my carrying on. An older man actually found me a spot It was on this leg ( not the La Guardia to Chatlotte ) that the food tray kept opening after trying to close them ( old latches ) US airlines flight attendants don't understand how to talk to travellers . Asian airlines have excellent flight attendants"
Cons: "This is a tiny plane and without warning they wouldn't let me carry on my carry on bag which would have fit just fine...it fit in their luggage test."
Cons: "30 min delay+ poor service+ uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight was fine...but delayed."
Cons: "Missed my connection."
Pros: "I arrived at the airport and the guy wouldn't let me board my flight so I lost my money. Im a new person that just started flying. I did like this Carrier but as of yesterday I'd rather use Delta for now on. So im still at home and didnt get a chance to make it to work."
Pros: "It was excelle thanks to you"
Pros: "My flight arrived a few minutes late but they made sure I made the connection."
Cons: "You delayed my flight and notified with me through email but did not provide any solution whatsoever for the connecting flight I was about to lose. Had I not checked my email when I did and taken immediate action, I wouldn't have made it to my final destination when I NEEDED TO BE. It's simply inconsiderate on your behalf."
Cons: "They tried to charge me 25 to check in"
Cons: "Seat in back of plane from Houston to Tampa horrible seats would not incline foot space barely big enough for legs <9 inches. Those seats should never be assigned I feel like I wasted $ by the horrible seating!"
Pros: "Blankets were provided"
Cons: "There wasn't any food or entrainment for me to rate."
Cons: "Too much Delays"
Pros: "Pilot was very nice!! Co-pilot too!!!"

Cons: "Although it did not happy to me personally, one of the flight attendants had a bit of an attitude towards several other passengers."
Pros: "Row 10, extra couple of inches is far more civilized."
Cons: "Didn't have the United app downloaded in time, so couldn't use the WiFi. No alternative."
Pros: "I liked having multiple lines for each boarding group. I think it would make sense to board from back of plane to front. I think it would make it go quicker"
Cons: "Having to check my bag plane side."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Cons: "Professionalism and friendly staff"
Cons: "My seat was randomly switched from my first selection and I got a horrible seat and was unable to regain my original seat selection. Very uncomfortable seating. The staff was nice, but not overly friendly."
Cons: "Had purchased a round-trip ticket. While in D.C. on a family trip to bury my mother in Arlington National Cemetery, my brother had a massive heart attack. After 3 weeks, he was stable enough to come back to Houston on an air ambulance. As I travelled with him on the air ambulance, I was unable to use the return portion of my round-trip ticket. I provided documentation of the situation and requested a refund. I received $106 on a $715 ticket. There was no explanation of how they determined the refund, but I'm not happy."
Pros: "Using Kayak was so convenient. They were great in keeping me informed of schedule & gate changes."
Pros: "Pilot did exceptional job with rough weather heading into Houston."
Cons: "With everyone carrying on baggage, someone mid plane to help would be beneficial."
Pros: "The flight was on time and a good pilot."
Cons: "Until bathrooms and crew area. One of the flight attendants was not friendly at all and my sit did not lay back."
Pros: "The the atensents were very helpful."
Cons: "Room too small for such a long flight"
Pros: "My flight was cancelled and I was pleased with how it was resolved. Thank you!"
Pros: "Nothing. Due to weather delays, there should have been a much better approach to resolvong the problem. Customer service was horrible"
Pros: "The worse trip. the last 8 people in check in was off on the air plane ."
Pros: "The breakfast was great"
Cons: "The headrest video screens need a button to turn them off. I almost went crazy for 4 1/2 hours watching the recurrent 30 second (maybe 60) clip advertising the same silliness. It was like torture. Also, why should we have to pay for a movie or a TV program? The whole idea with that is to sooth the anxiety and discomfort of being hostage to a seat without any degree of comfort. That plane was the worst. My tailbone was screaming after 30 minutes. Sure doesn't make me inspired to be a return flyer. Brent W. Mueller MD"
Cons: "Flight left almost two hours late, missed connecting flight, alternate flight cancelled, United Club wouldn't pass-holders in club. Had to sleep in airport."
Cons: "I waiting from 9:00 morning until tomorrow 8:00. 24 hours for cancelled this's so crazy and long time and I still waiting for another flight"
Pros: "Good friendly crew"
Cons: "Old plane, poor seats (even in First), no entertainment or wifi."
Cons: "The snacks were horrible. And the fact you get a sip of a drink makes no sense."
Pros: "Very kind employees, was able to get last minute tickets at a reasonable price, entertainment on the first flight"
Cons: "Many alerts in my e-mail."
Pros: "Seats were okay as far as comfort level"
Cons: "This flight was overbooked. I had to be back at work the next day, so I really needed to take it. The gate agents wouldn't tell me what was going on, only that the flight was overbooked and that they were "trying to get me a seat." I stood there while all of the groups boarded, waiting for my ticket. I was the last person given a ticket. By the time I finally got to board, all overhead space was taken, so I had to gate check my bag. And then someone had taken the seat I was given, so I had to ask him to move, and he started crying (child). He cried for 20 minutes, so that was fun. Also, this was a red eye - I really wanted to sleep, but right as I was dozing off, the flight attendants turned on the lights for drink service. Overall, just a really poor experience and very hard to sleep."
Cons: "The snacks where gross."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The flight got delay because of that I had problems at customs and immigration"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight."

Pros: "On time departure of flight"
Cons: "Seats seem to be getting smaller. Flight attendants movement is greatly reduced. It seemed that his behind every time I looked up. Not good!"
Cons: "The staff"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, plane old and shabby and staff unfreindly and unhelpful."
Pros: "I had lots of room, the flight was great"
Pros: "Easy boarding process"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "I liked the fact that United Airlines crew members at the gate and on the plane waited for all the passengers who were stuck at TSA because of the airport's issue with staffing. They were extremely accommodating and didn't seem bothered at either the gate or when I boarded."
Cons: "I understand it was a short flight but seemed like the 2 attendants were stressed with trying to have enough time for drinks. Maybe add a 3rd person. Also snacks should still be part of the flight even if it's less than a hour. We are getting a drink...why not add something like nuts"
Pros: "Easy,smooth ride, thank you"
Pros: "Service and price"
Cons: "When about to get on plane, carry on taken to checked bags; 5 people already on plane were required to come back off and check bags. I begged not to have to check because I was flying to Nicaragua and was worried my only bag would get lost. I was right -- it did not arrive in Nicaragua until the next day. We sat on runway for 45 minutes before departure so United could fix BOTH sets of the plane's wings lights. Why did they not discover that at any time BEFORE we all boarded or while we were boarding -- NOT first when deciding to pull away from gate. Delay caused many to miss connections."
Pros: "Staff was awesome!!!!"
Pros: "Loved the ability to watch movies, and to be able to plug in and charge my electronic device. Very nice plane everything was in pristine condition. Crew was outstanding and professional. I didn't eat anything on the plane so I can't really give my opinion."
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat until I got to the gate and I ended up with a middle seat even though the flight was not completely booked. Several other passengers in my situation took it upon themselves to take the aisle seats once we started to depart the gate without asking the crew members."
Pros: "There were no delays."
