Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Zero PPE or social distancing by crew"
Cons: "The crew was forced to stay seated the entire flight. They conversed very loudly the entire flight. It was very disruptive."
Pros: "The timeliness of the flight and the service during the flight."
Cons: "The tagging of the bags. The bigger bags should be the only ones tagged. Smaller bags that fit in the bin should be allowed in the cabin."
Cons: "I’d prefer more a la carte food options rather than only boxes of stuff that include 3 things I don’t want."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time departure, early arrival, and outstanding landing (I’m a pilot, so can give valid judgement)."
Cons: "I requested a seat with extra legroom due to a medical condition over a month before the flight. I was not granted my request and was in pain for most of the flight."

Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."

Pros: "The landing!"
Cons: "Ran out of snacks by the time they got to my row"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. It took longer than expected due to the hurricane. When we arrived, there was no gate so we had to sit on the runway forever. Then the gate checked bags took forever. I was supposed to have a 1.5 hour layover. I barely made my connection as I only had 20 minutes left until takeoff by the time we got off the plane."
Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule. Each passenger was given free headphones and complimentary beverages and snacks. I love Delta they are a cut above the rest. They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "The limited space in our seats"
Pros: "Aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Ninety minute delay due to lack of rested crew preventing timely departure. No gate upon arrival at La Guardia LGA. Wouldn’t let passengers off after shutdown until all gate checked luggage was off the aircraft. Long bus ride around airport. Airport was a mess, with significant construction underway. Avoid Delta to LGA!"

Pros: "The flight is short"
Cons: "Delayed from 930pm to 6am. Didn't tell us till almost midnight. Because of scheduling issues not weather or anything. The check in people had no idea what I was talking about when I tried to check in for my 6am rescheduled flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."
Cons: "Short 30 minute delay; arrived 5 minutes late. 45 min flight doesnt allow for any food service."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Long layover in Atlanta. Terrible terminal setup in LAX . Although we were on two connecting Delta flights, we had to leave the arriving terminal and take a bus to another. The second terminal (Terminal 2) was small, crowded, and had few food options."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I was in a middle seat on a sold out plane. The person in the window seat was so large the arm rest between us would not go down and he extended into my space. Fortunately the flight was short but the combination of shrinking seats and widening fliers make flying uncomfortable."
Cons: "Change d for WiFi. Cheap"
Pros: "Please call me. Why did you double charge me? I took my parents for a trip and you charge me 2 twice?? Call me 416 888 4387"

Cons: "Wish Delta offers more reasonable and available business class awards"

Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We arrived at the gate early only to find out that they had changed our flight without telling us so we were almost an hour extra wait before leaving Vegas. Then that flight was delayed by about 30 minutes with no warning, just late!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent."
Cons: "Air conditioning was extremely noisy."
Cons: "Probably the roughest, bumpiest landing over ever experienced. The brakes were grinding very loudly during taxi (I overheard several other passengers comment on this). The plane was very cramped and the air smelled. Thank God it was such a short flight."
Cons: "Missed flight with a few minutes and was not allowed to catch the next available. List the entire ticket!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, no delays, quiet easy flight, arrived on time and quick deplaning."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delta cancelled direct flight and we ended up standby on two flights, getting into NYC much later. Not nice."
Pros: "Just absolutely uneventful and quick."
Pros: "Good and crew were great"
Cons: "Seating was horrible. No leg room, and I'm only 5'9" tall. Tray table was broken. No cushioning in seat. We're likely to look for other airline choices for long future flights"
Cons: "The 2 hr delay for mechanical issue, having to board and then as soon as we left gate having to go back an deplane"
Pros: "A little more leg room than the next leg of our flight."
Pros: "The crew was great and I really appreciate how they accommodated a family with 4 young children"
Cons: "The seat from DFW to SLC was designed for people who have a sever slouch. Very uncomfortable seating position that isn’t anatomically correct."
Pros: "crew kept hitting my arm with cart and butt. imnot obese at all...…..they never apologized. too small...…………...squeezed in"
Pros: "The idea of having inflight entertainment."
Cons: "1. Crew moved my luggage without asking, 2. Sat in window seat and it was easily 85 degrees, 3. Seat is not made for someone 6’2”. Neck support falls at shoulders which was super uncomfortable, 4. Inflight entertainment worked for a bit then didn’t."
Pros: "Crew was courteous; greeted entering and departing the plane. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Increase leg room and widen seating- way too narrow in width and uncomfortable. Flight, although it arrived on schedule, was unable to taxi to the to dock at gate due to lack of ground crew. I have experienced on-time arrivals only to wait on the tarmac until ground crew arrives is unacceptable."
Pros: "Most people had movies and other things to entertain themselves with via rear seat displays."
Cons: "My rear seat display never worked, though I complained about it at least 6 times during the flight. Nothing was offered to aid or fix the problem besides the stewardess saying she'd reset it several times."
Pros: "Pilot was very careful went around the storm that we could see from out flight nicely got us home safely. Great job."
Cons: "Even though I had a priority boarding I was told that I was suppose to stay with group 5. As a BA silver traveller I didn’t get the boarding priority."
Pros: "Desk attendant was very kind, but clearly had no idea what to tell us."
Cons: "See previous flight post, another delay for mechanical issues, another round of poor communication."
Cons: "The 1st class flight attendant refused to bring a glass of champagne, I was sitting five feet away so I could see she was just fiddling with things with her back to me. I asked the other flight attendant to relay my request to her, again she ignored me. This was ten minutes before takeoff..."
Cons: "I’m still on the plane and there’s this poor sick dude across from me who is sneezing and snorting and spewing phlegm everywhere!!! I feel so sorry for him bc he’s got muscular dystrophy or something and it’s uncontrollable. But I also feel sorry for the poor little girl next to him! I am about to puke it’s so gross and he’s 4 peeps away from me! Ugh, I HATE germy planes!!!!! Not sure people should be allowed to travel without masks in this condition."
Pros: "No complaints honestly. Crew was friendly, boarding was painless, and flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was old, but it didn’t really impact my flight at all."
Pros: "Polite. Clean. Nice business class."
Cons: "Would like more Western food."
Cons: "All the different prices for seats. I think it is a stupid system. Miss the good old days of air travel."

Pros: "Spacious aircraft for a relatively short flight. I usually take a smaller aircraft that requires us to check our luggage. I'm reconsidering where I will have layovers now."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and environment, great food, smiling helpful staff"
Pros: "Quick time in boarding and exiting plane in Charlotte."
Cons: "Frustrating to pay extra for priority boarding so they don't require that my carry on be checked which requires me to take half of my luggage and shove it in my backpack to make sure that it lands with me."
Cons: "Having my 5am oneway flight cancelled 3 hrs before flight time resulting in rebooking with layover and tripple the time it would have taken to get to my destination"

Pros: "Smooth ride."

Cons: "Crew a little slow flight departed later all wwll"
Pros: "Snacks and beverage"
Cons: "Very hard seat"
Pros: "The plane was late and we could not catch our other flight connection so we had to wait 2 1/2 hours from the one"
Cons: "Tight seating. Stewardess over the speaker was very hard to understand. Not a smooth landing."
Pros: "I liked that there were no stops."
Cons: "I had an instant panic attack when our flight was delayed because a box cutter was found under a seat on the flight that just arrived. I get honesty, but I was seriously reconsidering getting on the plane, because what if they missed something? I was working out in my head what would happen to our pets if we died on this flight, because we don't have a will yet."
Cons: "Nothing, really"
Pros: "That it went smooth and had room on the flight. Crew was good."
Cons: "Need more than just pretzels on the plane to give out"
Cons: "The parking garage is confusing, but worth the extra money to park there."
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight so I had more legroom, since I didn't have a person sit beside me on both flights. The flights arrive on time. Boarding was organized, quick and effective."
Cons: "Flight attendant provided a snack to everyone and forgot to offer a snack to me. There were children on both flights, kicking my seat through 60% of the flight. There was not entertainment provided for brief flights and the snack selection was mediocre."
Pros: "The boarding agent in Jacksonville, FL was a spirited, beautiful woman. She had everyone in the terminal cheer all the soldiers on our flight. And was very helpful to me getting a seat closer to the door as I was having horrible spasms in my back. She is what AMERICAN Airlines should be to all customers. Gate B47 on 9/30."
Pros: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."
Pros: "Over all wonderful!"
Pros: "Easy not very busy airports makes boarding easy. Pay extra for seat but I can choose where to sit+++ Cost was very favorable for flight"
Pros: "Plenty of room for carry-on bags"
Cons: "Charlotte airport was a zoo due to delays of slights coming in but all outgoing flights were on time so many connections including mine were missed"
Pros: "The fact I made the flight"
Cons: "Nearly missing the flight that my luggage did not arrive with me that I had to go back to airport 6 hours later to get it!!!!!"
Pros: "well, everything was fine but it was a tiny plane so there wasn't any entertainment and it was a short flight so there wasn't any food."
Pros: "Great flight crew."
Cons: "Being charged at the ticket area for one bag and finding out at the gate it is complimentary."
Cons: "Cancelled flight, not notified in timely manner. Delayed Five hours due to be placed on connecting flights instead of a direct flight which is what I paid for."
Cons: "I've been waiting a total of 6 hours so far. My plane was delayed yesterday and they sent me home, which was a 2 hour drive plus car rental. I came back this morning only to find I'm delayed again for another 4 hours. I'm a patient man but this was a bit to much even for me. This is my first written complaint I've ever had with any business"
Cons: "I tooka trip to Jacksonville Florida and the flight was 2 hours late because they had no flight crew. Guess what on my return flight it was also late about 2 hours. Is this the new standard."
Cons: "Flight delayed about two hours"
Cons: "Flite was late."
Pros: "Arrived 25 minutes early"
Cons: "Bad news is that we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes in a very hot plane waiting for the gate to become unoccupied."
Cons: "Really disappointed with the lack of professionalism and the inability to customers / passengers to their location on time even after the multiple delays. We sat on a non moving plan for an extra 45 minutes while we waited to be docked into a gate then wait on a runway driver so we could get off therefore countless people missing their connecting flights & caused to be stuck in Charlotte. Really disappointing and frustrating ."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating."
Pros: "The credit was polite, hat was about it"
Cons: "We were delayed coming out bc the plane needed de-icing... IN JACKSONVILLE, but they were unable to get manager approval for de-icing and then the truck was out of fuel. Finally, the pilot moved the plane into the sun (which should have happened much sooner). During the flight, the cabin temperature dropped to low 60s and everyone was freezing."
Pros: "Waffle cookies were amazing"
Pros: "A FUN HAPPY TIME AS THE CHAPS WHO SAT EITHER SIDE OF ME WERE CHATTY AND HUMOROUS - THEY WERE HAPPY THAT COLUMBUS DAY WAS TO BE CELEBRATED THIS PAST MONDAY AND WHEN I TOLD THEM I WAS TO CELEBRATE CANADIAN THANKSGIVING WITH MY SON AND HIS AMERICAN WIFE AND THEIR 2 CHILDREN - WELL LET'S JUST SAY THE 3 HOURS OF THE FLIGHT FLEW BY. SMILE"
Cons: "They could have used the bathroom to stuff a few more people on this flight. Whoops, no, bathroom not clean. Tray broken on seat. Seated in last row and asked to close bathroom door of it opened during takeoff. Seated next to very large passenger who wanted to share my seat. Sat on tarmac for 30 minutes waiting to take off. For this, I paid $650."
Pros: "Not really impressed"
Pros: "nice and easy boarding, good customer relations"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, unlike the people at the ticket and gate counters."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by nearly two hours, causing me to have to miss my connection. Though they knew for hours that the flight would be delayed, they did not have enough people working at the check in counters. There were not that many people in line, but I had to wait more than 20 minutes before being able to speak to someone. The representative informed me that I would have to be rebooked onto a later connection because the delay would cause my to miss my original connecting flight, and when I told her that I needed an earlier time to avoid missing a meeting, she just said "I have nothing earlier." She was barely even apologetic. Then she was unable to print my boarding pass for my connection. I had a 2 hour and 45 minute layover in Houston whereas in my original flight it was 1 hour."
Pros: "Thumbs up"
Cons: "The gate agent for United at Newark was very rude and dismissive. Would not answer any of my questions or anyone who attempted after me. His attitude was very poor and seemed to not care about his job. Plane was late arriving in Portland Maine."
Pros: "The planes were small which were fine because there was still enough leg room.."
Cons: "Sears could be a little wider not everyone is small frame"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The flight was fine, but my flight was cancelled on the 29th and the agent who helped rebook my flight was abrupt, then I get to the airport on the 30th and the flight is delayed another 2 hours. Of course it was all "weather" related, so no help from the airlines. I'm not a satisfied customer. I would have flown Delta if it was possible."
Pros: "On time...."
Cons: "Bigger plane than usual.."
Pros: "Our connecting flight was more comfortable than flight from San Francisco"
Cons: "Delay because of change of plane and 3 gate changes"
Cons: "The pilot speeding up and then putting on the brakes time after time on flight from Norfolk 10:30 am to Dulles today. Very rough flight and it was beautiful smooth air today. I'm a private pilot and could not figure out what was going on,"
Cons: "Long wait on the plane on the tarmac."
Pros: "Flight attendant very friendly and helpful Seat row layout of 1 and 2 On time Legroom adequate Smooth flight"
Cons: "Cabin temperature became too cold Seats small Engine noise drowned out announcements of pilot and flight attendant Narrow uneven disembarking ramp at Portland Jetport Lack of clarity about flight gate in Newark. I checked in at Terminal C and had to take a shuttle bus to Terminal A"
Pros: "On time quick flight."
Cons: "No legroom, snack a joke, no entertainment."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Excellent, on time flight. The only issue I have is people boarding t the back and leaving their luggage in front. We almost didn't have room to stow our luggage. This shouldn't be allowed."
Pros: "Flight staff was wonderful."
Cons: "Newark Airport. The terminal was probably 60 degrees. Navigation signs were the least helpful of any airport I've flown out of or into."
Pros: "Being able to use a digital boarding pass."
Cons: "On my outbound trip my connecting flight changed gates. There was no notice from United or on the terminal monitors. United sent me a text saying my connecting flight had departed already, but when I got to the gate a representative brusquely informed me the flight was departing from the other end of the terminal."
Pros: "Finally arriving at the destination."
Cons: "We were stranded in Newark with little to no air conditioning in 90 degree heat. Our flight was delayed 9 HOURS. I lost an entire day of my family's vacation because of United Airlines and their massive blunder. They said it was because there was no air conditioning, but at the same time they said their crew clocked out and we had to wait for new personnel to man the plane. I find it hard to believe that this couldn't be foreseen and avoided. By the time we finally got our crew, we then had to await for a storm to pass, and then 40 other planes had to take off first. All United offered in apology were $10 vouchers that expire in two days, and a free drink on the plane."
Pros: "We left on time"
Pros: "On time and friendly to Portland as always."
Cons: "The departure was late. There was no explanation nor apology. As a long term and faithful Alaska Airlines customer I was shocked that a plane would not leave on time and act like it was par for course. Ehhh so what? I'm an older woman and needed help with my overhead luggage. The very young male attendant saw me struggling and just said that is not going to fit and walked toward the front of the plane. No offer to help whatsoever. The plane was small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Please read above--I was standing at the gate waiting to board when the gate rep told me and another passenger there was only one seat left--on a flight I was confirmed on! The other passenger said he had a family obligation and the rep handed him the last ticket before I could get a word out. I felt so disrespected and like my business and money meant nothing to United. Then began my saga to get to Portland. Unbelievable."
Cons: "Upon arrival the flight attendant left me stranded on the tarmack without a wheelchair for 20 minutes. I have serious balance issues and was terrified. My connection was very tight and I barely made my plane to Portland. The pilot finally saw the problem and got the assistance I needed. This was the most frightening wheelchair experience I have even had."
Pros: "I wish I would have caught her name but the staff member at the boarding gate was fabulous! She is someone I would want representing my company."
Cons: "The wafer served with the beverage & my seat assignment stunk."
Pros: "I had no complications before/during this flight. It was as if the air travel angels were smiling down on me, making little decisions like, "Sure. Give her that rare luxury of having no one sitting beside her... twice in a row. And toss in not one, but two of those United Airlines cookies." (Those cookies are sooooo good.) Really, at the moment, I can think of nothing anyone could've done any better."
Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."
Cons: "United did not service the final destination so they transferred luggage to another airline and then washed their hands of it. When one of4 remained lost they did not help at all!"
Pros: "I eventually made it to Hawaii."
Cons: "Flight was delayed >8 hours. Had to change flights with a late departure and more layovers. Took over 24 hours to get there. Ridiculous."
Cons: "No snacks offered on the plane"
Pros: "They boarded is quickly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed on runway for over an hour. When the passenger next to me asked the lead flight attnd about her connecting flight the attnd was extremely rude and of no help. Any ? was answered with "well just look at your united airways app". Then later I asked what gate we were coming in on and her reply was "the capt just said it". I replied saying "sorry I didn't hear it" and again the flight attnd answered "look on your UA app". I don't usually fly UA so I didn't have it. Overall she was short, snarky and rude with ever reasonable question asked. No one was rude to her but her attitude was shocking. I travel quite often and have never seen an antd speak or act this way to passengers. I understand things get stressful, but I def won't be flying UA again if this is the way they allow flight attnds to speak to customers. She way beyond rude and lazy and I hope the girl she was training doesn't pick up those traits either."
Cons: "Deverted to Newark to get to portland"
Pros: "Very polite, upbeat crew"
Cons: "Newark airport a mess!"
Pros: "This was the most smoothest overall trip I have ever had flying! I loved the new plane (from JAX) and the leg room since I'm 6'5 and it was very comfortable. Everyone involved in the process were very professional as well."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and the later flights to Portland were all full, so I was offered a flight to Boston instead, with no refund for the bus ticket from Boston to Portland, and of course my bag did not arrive with me."
Pros: "Not much to say about an hour flight. Coffee could not be served due to weather conditions, not airlines fault."
Pros: "Excellent service, amazed that on flight attendant was capable of serving everyone on the flight."
Cons: "A tight fit for seats, luckily it was short trip. I tried hard not to spill over in the other person seat. The arm rest did not help, made it worse."
Pros: "No entertainment. Water and assorted chips were fine."
Cons: "Plane very nice. Good leg and seat space."
Cons: "Over four hour delay due to "crew unavailability.""
Cons: "It was snowing and we disembarked on tarman"
Pros: "I liked being able to move my assigned seat to a window seat"
Cons: "My trip was supposed to be Newark to Jacksonville on Sunday, Jan 31 and stay until Saturday, Feb 6. I booked my trip in September. When I got the the airport (2 hours before my flight) I went to the kiosk to print my ticket, after entering my confirmation code and last name the computer informed me that I require assistance so I flagged down one of the people working the counter, where I was promptly informed that I do not have a seat on the plane. The plane was overbooked. My number one question was how is it possible that I am the one getting bumped if I booked my flight almost 5 months ago?!?! The person then informed me that I can either go to the gate and hope someone doesn't show up and get a seat on that plane, or she can book me on a flight to Tampa then a puddle jumper to Jacksonville. I decided to take the Tampa option (without being informed that it was going to change my simple two hour flight into a 9 hour ordeal). I headed to my gate and took a look at my tickets only to find out that I have a 3 hour layover in Tampa... Wtf am I supposed to do in Tampa for three hours?!? Anywho, instead of getting to Jacksonville at 12, I got there at 6:30 losing an entire day. Now for the trip home. I'll start with I did get home in the appropriate amount of time, on my original booked flight. However, I was forced to check my bag. And not like go to the carousel when you de-board check your bag( which I would prefer)... Get off the plane and wait in the vestibule with everyone else who had to check their bags for your luggage to be retrieved from the plane and brought up to the vestibule.. It became a mosh pit of ooh! That's my bag! ( picture a bunch of random adults playing mother may I with the airport staff as the mother). Then back to the actual flight, the attendant didn't start coming around asking if we wanted drinks or snacks until more than half way through the flight meaning you had about 10 minutes to enjoy whatever you ordered until the pilot asked you to raise the tables. Then also I couldn't understand a single thing that was said over the loudspeaker ( it sounded like they recycled the speakers that ny metro decided were no longer good enough for their subway cars). And finally, the seats that were so narrow both in space between you and the person in front of you and next to you is an absolute joke. I suppose if you were to get on the plane and sit completely still in an upright position for two hours you would be perfectly comfortable, however seeing as most people don't do that it was extremely uncomfortable. All in all I do not reccomend flying United. Ever. Very upsetting experience. There is a reason it was my cheapest option."
Pros: "Row A"
Cons: "My checked bag was left in Chicago. Major inconvenience"
Pros: "Fast and efficient. Definitely no frills."
Cons: "I didn't like that they gave me an extra layover causing me to come into Portland six hours later than I was supposed to. I went from Chicago to Newark, when I was only supposed to go from Chicago to Portland."
