Flight attendants were super chill and the flight was comfortable. They provide passengers with lots of bottles of water (two or more even); yay for hydration!

Cons: "Stop pandering fear with masks."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Felt unsafe. Guy with guns and how delta employees handled it blew my mind!"
Pros: "The entertainer system was down all of the flight, could not charge my phone. Crew was polite but Curt."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."
Pros: "Crew. Alcohol and water bottles. Food. Entertainment. Comfort"
Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."
Pros: "I asked at the gate to change my seat in row 30 because I was not next to my husband. The crew arranged this! Loved the leg room! Service was perfect."
Cons: "Flying first class!"
Cons: "I upgraded to Premium+ and it did not feel like an upgrade from a comfortability standpoint."
Pros: "Al the amenities were provided."
Cons: "In this day and age Wi-Fi should be provided always. Unfortunately it wasn't on the flight from Tokyo back to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Plane was on-time, that was the only thing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "First, I was charged $100 because my bag was 3 kilos over weight. Second the seats in Comfort Plus were old. The recline was weak and there were no foot rests. For a cheaper flight on American, the seats have those amenities making it easier to sleep. Plus the food was inedible."
Cons: "Even the baggage was quick (highly unusual for Columbus, Ohio)! Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"
Pros: "Although the weather was sketchy and the flight was delayed about 2 hours, the actual flight was much smoother than forecasted."

Pros: "Departed on time. Very courteous crew."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The floor of the aircraft was cold!"
Cons: "Crying baby"
Pros: "Immagration was fast and organized didn't take long to move through customs. Quick and smooth"
Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Pros: "Excellent crew, snacks and coffee, comfortable economy seats. Plane landed 15 min early. Bags beat me to the carousel."
Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"
Pros: "Gate Agent was extremely helpful and compassionate regarding making sure our family (traveling with adolescent children)was accommodated ."
Pros: "Good price, good boarding and arriving, friendly and quick crew, LOTS of fluids. Restrooms cleaned frequently!! Great legroom."

Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."
Pros: "Seating was ok but had better for a premium coach."
Cons: "The tv screen. Touch pad was not working properly on both legs."
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."

Pros: "Female flight attendant was incredibly personable and had a bubbly personality. Definitely made you want to smile"
Cons: "Not enough room. Could have better technology and better food choices."
Pros: "Always nice to be on an American plane out of an American airport.....SO much more professional. :))"
Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"
Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."
Pros: "Had tv & movies available but kept losing signal"
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. Very rough landing. No beverage service. Late taking off."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not board this flight as the previous one from Tokyo was late by an hour. Delta did not do ANYTHING to help us pass immigration and customs the fastest possible way. They sent us with the luggage to another terminal and had no signs or attendants to tell us where we recheck the bags. In the end we were late for the flight but Delta did not care!!! They tried putting me on a flight to SLC with a connection! Overall, I am VERY unhappy with them! Zero stars is what they deserve."
Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."
Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"
Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"
Pros: "The time traveled to get to my destination! It would not be my choice if I was to fly again."

Cons: "No entertainment except paid WiFi."
Pros: "We got to board first"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, the food was uneddible and we had to wait a very long time for our baggage"

Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."
Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."
Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."
Pros: "Space, seats, movies."
Cons: "I was on a seat at the end, after my seat, the stewardess had their closet and they kept hitting (very strongly) the back of my seat with the door, all the time. They woke me up several times. So not good."
Pros: "The aircraft was barely half full."
Cons: "Delay due to fog at LHR, but this is not the fault of the airline"

Pros: "Service oriented; kind smiles; responsive Pilot provided a smooth and fast flight."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "The food was good, along with the service."
Cons: "Medical emergency in the row in front of me and all of the crew blocked my television screen so I could not watch my movie. I was sitting in first class."
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Flight crew, including air-hostesses were very polite, accomodating, and helpful. Entertainment system consisted of a big screen LED."
Cons: "Absolutely unprofessional. Zero courtesy’s & hospitality. Totally untrained ground staff. Will want to file a lawsuit against the airlines."
Pros: "trip was pretty nice"
Cons: "service excellent"
Pros: "excellent service."
Cons: "I always feel that Lufthansa short changes passengers for the flights to the East. 2 tiny washrooms for business class passengers. Toilet lids non- functional. The flat seats are definitely not comparable to ones for travel in the Western Sector."
Cons: "Our original flight, one day earlier, was canceled 10 minutes before boarding."

Cons: "The seating space is very tight, more space is needed specially for tall people."

Pros: "Boarding, seat and crew"
Cons: "Movies selection and audio offers"
Pros: "Very friendly staff and food was delicious."
Cons: "I had to run from Terninal A to Z to make this flight since our first flight was delayed arriving due to weather. As a result, my luggage didn't make it to my destination."
Pros: "food and service"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Cons: "I was surprised that flight attendant ask to close the bins that flight will not be delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful. Flight was half empty so it was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was not very clean."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked with many.people being on standby. The crew at the gate was unhelpful making entire experience more streafull than necessary without clear rules how the seats will be assigned (whether we should wait in line or they will call us by names). The flight was 2h delayed in NYC because of the mess at the gate coating me a missed connection to Denmark (not that it was necessary have Lufthansa put any effort in speeding up.my transfer like pick up at the gate, gate information before I left aircraft or even as I approached a desk I. Frankfurt as the conneecting flight was late too). On top of that mess I have not gotten my speciality meal and eintertaiment system was malfunctioning the entire flight. Crew could not be bothered with bringing over water and didn't exactly respond to call button."
Pros: "Flight itself ok"
Cons: "Three gate changes. Finally herded us into a holding area to bus us 100 yards to the plane. After carefully having small children and special needs go first into holding it was a free for all to get to the bus."
Cons: "Food was awful. Looked like something you would find in prison. My second leg did not even have vegan options for me, as I ordered online weeks ago. I was so hungry after almost 14 hours of flying plus a 12-hour layover. I am not impressed with this airline."
Pros: "I found the seats roomy - plenty of leg room. They were very comfortable in the way they leaned back. The food was very good, even though the meal was a simple lunch. The plane was very clean and bright."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like. In fact, I felt: "This is the way flying aught to be.""
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficient, and the entertainment system was modern."
Cons: "The pilot didn't get us over the intercom even once. No communication at all from the cockpit. Staff was ok, but not very friendly. Seats were very close together in my row (30)… but other rows had seats with more legroom m."
Cons: "The crew was quite unfriendly and rude. Also not very attentive. The crew on the first trip from Miami to Frankfurt in contrast was outstanding. I'm disappointed because this was not up to Lufthansa's standards."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable even in business"
Pros: "Food was great, as was entertainment interface on tv."
Pros: "Professional staff. Appreciated warm towels before meals. Appreciated few announcements during flight so we could sleep."
Cons: "Difficult to eat when seat backs were back in front of us. Fight attendants did not request seat backs to be raised during meals."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Lufthansa took great care of my two cats transport abroad. They went overboard in my estimation and along with partner Adria Airways I couldn't be more grateful,and so are the kitties, for the wonderful care. ."
Pros: "The food, the crew, the cleanness and the entertainment"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "3 hour flight. Met my expectations. Boarding was easy and friendly crew.Athens airport was quite easy and comfrtable."
Cons: "Breakfast egg was rubbery. Small overhead space"
Pros: "Restrooms on lower level a first for us. No waiting or lines In aisles . Entertainment selection decent."
Cons: "Reclining in seats not adequate for sleeping; very difficult to be comfortable."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Lack of space for legs, to much noise to"
Cons: "I will never gonna buy a ticket here again because didn't even take me i lost all my money"
Pros: "Smoothness"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "A movie player"
Pros: "The flight time are on time ."
Cons: "Good entertainment on broad"
Pros: "CBP info."
Cons: "Wish AA cabin crew would treat the customers as attentively and friendly as the JAL crew. The 8pm inflight dinner is horrible. Why would they serve the cold dishes for the first Japanese course? I got a diarrhea."
Pros: "Take off 20 minute early. Super on time."
Cons: "The food can be better."
Cons: "i was on a commuter jet for 2 1/2 hours which was cramped and uncomfortable. no wifi or any entertainment. we sat on the tarmac when we landed for approximately 10 minutes even though we were not early."
Pros: "Flight was mostly empty and it’s a short trip."
Cons: "Super hot inside the cabin and little we could do to lower the temp"
Pros: "The 2 flight attendants who continued to work this flight were amazing. The gate agent in Phoenix was also great."

Cons: "My seat was disgusting when I went to sit in it. Then I discovered the seat was broken. 24A"
Pros: "Food and staff are great"
Cons: "Small space between seats"
Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."
Pros: "Very nice new plane."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Getting through security at O'Hare was horrible. My plane seat was too upright and felt like it was not bolted to the floor properly."
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Cons: "The crew was very disappointing!!!!!!"
Pros: "Meal and drink service was excellent"
Cons: "Economy plus is packed liked sardines and difficult to move from side to side. Also upgrade doesn’t include priority seating. It should be included in any seating upgrade."
Cons: "No overhead space"
Pros: "Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much."
Cons: "Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc."
Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."
Pros: "Good service. The crew was very attentive. The pilots were very good about relaying Typhoon related issues to the passengers; and doing their best to get us to our destination as close to on time as they could"
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Pros: "40 minute flight, on time, no complaints."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."
Cons: "My ticket was issued by JAL but it was printed oersted by American Air. I was confused which terminal I should go to checo in. I called JAL. i waited 2 hours. No answer. Then, I called AA. They said international. But i went to terminal 4 which is American Air just in case because it was OPERATED by AA. I was right! I hope someone gave me a correct info."
Pros: "Super nice plane. High tech . Comfortable. Good food"
Cons: "This flight was miserable. Seriously, one of the worst flight experiences I've ever had. The leg room was absurdly small. I'm not a tall person and I only had one inch in front of my legs. When the guy in front of me put his seat back it pressed into my knees. There wasn't enough space to bend down and untie my shoes, let alone get something out of my bag. My shoulder and knee were touching the guy next to me (a complete stranger) for the entire flight and there was nothing I could do about it. This was a red-eye but I absolutely could not sleep because it was so uncomfortable, so when we landed I had a terrible migraine and was nauseous and disoriented going through customs. I actually had to sit down in the airport because I though I was gonna pass out while trying to carry my bag, that's how shitty I felt after this flight. On top of that, not being able to sleep on the flight really messed up my sleep schedule and so jet lag from the time change has been made even worse, so I'm completely out of whack and its so much worse that it otherwise would have been because of the horrible flight. Also the food was gross and there wasn't enough of it. Even now, I don't think I have really communicated just how shitty this flight was. I was actually angry when I saw my seat upon boarding, and I'm still angry about it now."
Cons: "I was expecting this to be a flight by Japan Airlines but it turned out to be an American Airlines flight. I was expecting and wanted to experience a flight from another airline."
Pros: "The crew was very good"
Cons: "The food was not good on this flight."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty good on the flight. That is my only positive experience."
Cons: "The seats were incredible jam-packed together. We had a 9 1/2 hour flight from Tokyo and could not even sit without our knees touching the seat in front of us. My tray table couldn't even properly extend -- the seats are so tight my tray just folded up on top of me. The food was BAD. 1/3 edible out of each course, consistently. I saw other passengers also dumping untouched trays of mystery meat that came as a side. They handed out egg-tomato-cucumber sandwiches which were inedible. The tomato had gone bad and the egg had a sour taste -- I gagged when I took the first bite. I'm especially disappointed with the seat spacing, though. I had a really difficult time getting in/out of the seating aisle to use the restroom. Even with our bags stored under the seat, I couldn't get in without tripping on/getting my foot caught in the strap of our purses/backpack. I couldn't even turn on one side without my arms or legs touching the passenger next to me -- sore neck, sore back, and still couldn't even get a wink of sleep. I will not be flying internationally with American Airlines again. They are the epitome of an airline trying to cash in on as many seats as possible. Save yourself the trouble and fly Japan Airlines directly -- their food was great and their seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. The steward as very helpful - just a cup of coffee when I entered the plane - but after nearly missing connections, it was very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was perfect."
Pros: "This JAL flight was actually operated by american airlines using an american airlines plane. This flight was not great compared to the JAL flight we took to Haneda which was actually a JAL plane which was roomier and had pretty good food."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty, overly sauced. The breakfast options were salmon or omelette and i got salmon. It was spongy and didn't look like salmon. It must have been mashed with something else and reformed into a roll form."
Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
Pros: "I liked the promptness and great service I would fly with them again :)"
Pros: "JAL is awesome overall. Super friendly crew. It was a short flight so no good was given but I did get little treats. There wasn't a tv to watch anything but I survived."
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."
Cons: "I was expecting to be on an JAL flight but it wasn't JAL and was operated by american airlines and I feel ripped off."
Pros: "The movie, game and music selections were good. However, my son was only able to connect to the Disney movies. Something was wrong with his monitor."
Cons: "Food was awful! Service was hit or miss. One flight attendant was very curt in asking about beverages. They seemed to be impatient. Also, comfort level was poor. I am only about 5'2" but I thought leg room space was tight."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and I liked the film selection."
Cons: "I was placed in the back of the plane and subsequently they ran out of the food option I would have chosen. There was only pork left which I cannot eat. I was left hungry and the stewardess was rude about it- I understand that she was likely tired as I was in the last row but it's literally her job. The flight was also pretty turbulent- which is usually worse in the back of the plane."
Pros: "Good variety of entertainment options. Wifi reliable"
Cons: "Food options were horrible. Need to offer non seafood/pork option."
Pros: "We bought the extra legroom. Worth it."
Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Cons: "Old Equipment"
Pros: "Japan Team excellent in customer service"
Cons: "AA flight crew very poor and not helpful, I saw one of the flight crew almost fight with a customer over a baby crib. As per my experience I had a nice travel suit that I took off and flught attendant did not offer help. I have to store on floor."
Pros: "This airline is evil."
Pros: "Arrived at destination safely."
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."

The flight overall wasn't bad, but there were some earphones left in the seat back in front of me that made me go "eww." I also couldn't get the attendant to bring me a pair of earphones or show me where to plug in to watch movies or TV. There was also a bottle of water rolling on the floor, but that could have been dropped by a passenger on this flight. Overall, I had a "meh" experience.

Cons: "The front desk in Vancouver, Canada did not allow me to board the plane to Tokyo. I am supposed to attend the memorial service of my Mom who passed away two days before."
Pros: "Boarded quickly and got into air fast."
Cons: "Way behind schedule and virtually no snacks or drinks."
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Cons: "Meals"
Cons: "More tv selection"
Pros: "Plane on time"
Cons: "Newark airport security was awful. Only one X-ray security area. Small tight area. No air. Security/TSA kept blaming the customer’s for the slowness. When is lack of X-ray and machines."
Pros: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Missed this flight"
Cons: "Missed this flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food was literally inedible. The breakfast of mushroom omelette and sausage was so unsavory, I could see the line where the outter “eggy” shell covered the inside, decidedly less eggy and hidden section. I had to stop eating it after 3 bites. Very disappointed with food quality."
Pros: "Kept getting bumped into"
Cons: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Seats were too small; my knees were always against the seat in front of me. Take-off from Dulles was extremely rough. The landing wasn't much better."
Pros: "Amazing amount of legroom! Very comfortable seating, even in economy."
Cons: "I would like to see passengers behave better. One lady pushed in at boarding and went ahead despite the checker telling her she was out of order, Another passenger used both underseat storage in front of him and under him so the person in back of him had no place to put things. Staff should try hard"
Cons: "When transferring our luggage from the flight from Panama, we had to walk all the way to the entrance of the airport as if we had just arrived there instead of being able to transfer the luggage directly. This was not communicated, and we ended up walking around a lot and having to ask at the info desk. When we finally got to the counter, the woman there gave confusing instructions and was incredibly rude to us. As for entertainment on the flight, we couldn't do anything without the app, which you have to get before you're on the plane. Boo."
Pros: "Crew members was nice,"
Cons: "Seat was okay and plane was a bit delay."
Pros: "This was my first experience flying United. The staff and pilot were friendly even though everyone seemed grumpy and tired. There was a poor baby that cried almost the whole flight-I get it, I was tired and wanted to cry too...ha! They handled everyone with patience and a smile."
Cons: "When we landed in Columbus we were stuck on the plane for almost a half hour because there were issues with the walking bridge. This was annoying."
Pros: "Everything was as planned"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "late.............."
Cons: "late"
Cons: "This airline is never on time. Their employees are rude and unhelpful. Planes were dirty! I won’t fly them again"
Pros: "Food was way better than I expected."
Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "When we finally got in board and going the pilot got us there quickly to make up for lost time. Staff was nice, it was beyond their control."
Cons: "We waited an hour to board due to a seat that would not stay upright and mechanics fixing it. I was very tired after international travel and it was my last flight to get to my car and go home."
Pros: "For the first time I did not fly on a puddle jumper. Not only was it a real jet, it had good seat comfort and leg room even in economy class. The crew was friendly and attentive. They came by with offerings of water at least 4 times for a 2+ hour flight. Contrast that with my last two 5 hour flights on Virgin and American where they came by with water — ONCE. WiFi wasn’t working for either flight and of course the lack of decent food is discouraging. The coffee has improved which is a plus. Overall, good job, United! Nice not to be jammed in like sardines for once."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working and food selection is non existent. Other than that, a very pleasant flight overall."
Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"
Pros: "Nice flight attendant"
Pros: "On time. Friendly employees"
Cons: "The snacks"
Pros: "Comfort"
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "No Information about when we would leave jersey"
Pros: "Decent flight made it there I time. Flight attendants were very nice and helpful"
Pros: "cheap tix"
Pros: "I was able to board early since I have a United MileagePlus Explorer card."
Cons: "The seats in economy has very limited legroom and the large and over weight Caucasian seating next to me frequently took the arm rest and cross over into my space. The airplane did not have individual monitors. And trying to watch a movie on my phone over United's wi-fi was a terrible experience since the signal keeps dropping."
Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Was way too hot on the plane."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "I never got to make the flight. I was unable to take the flight because it was cancelled by United without my consent. I still needed the flight too. I'll never use priceline or United airlines for travel EVER again, and I'll be sure to spread the word. No matter who I talked to, I was blamed for the problem. I've never had a bigger waste of money. $550+"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Pros: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"
Pros: "Felt like a bothersome passenger even though I did not ask for anything. The snack was tossed at me in an empty seat instead of handed to me."
Pros: "Dirty, tired airplane. This (and every other flight going out around our gate) was "oversold"- egging travelers to give up their seats"
Pros: "the plane was on time, smooth take off and landing, crew was efficient and friendly. it was great !"
Cons: "Group 5 was a very delayed boarding beyond what it should have been with no explanation. Felt like second class citizen"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"
Pros: "The crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "feeling cramped"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hrs because short of crew member"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and was very responsive with passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so we ended up arriving about 40 minutes late. Not enough leg room which ends up making lots of people grumpy."
Cons: "The aircraft smelled like the restroom due to the fact the aircraft came out of the hangar and the bathroom didn't get cleaned. This flight was delayed as well."
Pros: "Plane was very comfortable. Attendants were friendly and it was very smooth and quick!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Maybe pick a packet food that is more favoured by more people. The wasabi peas weren't a good choice for our family"
Cons: "Good trip overall."
Pros: "Flight was delayed because they couldn't get their passenger count straight! 30 min delay just to leave the gate!"
Cons: "When we arrived 20 mins late and then no one was at the terminal gate to put sky walk in place! After 20 min wait we had to walk down the aircraft stairs outside and go thru a door and climb two flights of stairs just to get into the airport"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and senseless. And I liked kayak updated me which baggage terminal my bags were. Saved a lot of time walking around the Dulles terminal."
