Pros: "Crews are very friendly"
Cons: "The Anchorage airport was FREEZING cold and it was August, maybe a little less AC IS IN ORDER"
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights.

Pros: "I'm very Thankful that I had no delays departing and arriving I liked that the flight was on time"

Pros: "Very friendly staff and the onboard meals were surprisingly good. Korean Air may quite possibly be my favorite airline."

Cons: "The first class accommodation isn't as good as advertised. The seat is supposed to completely recline allowing you to sleep. Unfortunately if you're 6 foot or taller there isn't enough room. Other airlines like Emirates gives you more room in their business class so it's disappointing to see United 1st class is so cramped. The screens for the onboard entertainment system in first class are lower quality then those used in coach."
Pros: "Lady said she was taking the seat I paid an upgrade fee for. Crew did nothing. Said I should take her seat."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew very friendly. Plane was clean, boarding very organized but I would suggest boarding from the back forward. This would eliminate blocked aisles."
Cons: "Agents at the ticketing countet were the rudest i have ever encountered in my years of flying. Had a problem and when i asked for their assistance was given the Delta 800 number and told to call and they walked off. When i called it was a 2 hour wait for an agent. Thank goodness for their app as i was able to.change my flight with the My Delta app. Also they had overbooked the flight and rather than giving assurance to people just told us to wait and "line up orderly"."

Pros: "Just absolutely uneventful and quick."
Pros: "Cormfortable and brief"
Cons: "A screaming spoiled three year old that started acting out in the boarding area and progressed to screaming for things at the boarding gate and didn't stop until we were almost there. At the top of her lungs screaming!! This was no child with ear issues, this was a child with parents that don't say no! Bad towards the front, I can't imagine how it was for the poor people seated in the back. Geez!!!!"

Pros: "The flight was good. Takeoff and landing were great. Service in flight great."

The overhead reading lights flashed on and off periodically making me a bit concerned about the electricals. Our main piece of luggage was sent on a different flight. It took us over an hour to locate that had happened. We waited at the distribution point. We got one Piecebut not the other. After all we’re taken from the belt we went in search and found it."
Pros: "Worst trip ever"
Cons: "Delayed hours , then circled airport on arrival. Then couldn’t deboard because no gate. Hands down worst experience"

Cons: "Found out at airport after getting up at 4AM. Told no flights on other airlines but when I got home found availability on Delta, Basically lied to us."
Cons: "Avianca cancelled our original flight forcing us to leave a day early. Next they cancelled our return flight forcing us to come home a day early. Finally, when we arrived, they had oversold the flight and were short one seat and almost didn't get on at all. Will NEVER fly Avianca again."

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."
Cons: "Briish Airways does not fly to JFK from Edinburgh. I paid for a flight that apparently did not exist. I had to purchase another flight from another airline on top of the flight that I booked with Kayak. I was supposed to fly to my original airport, but I had to fly to a tiny little airport upstate and pay for a bus to get me back to NYC. I doubt I'll see any of that money I lost in the initial transaction..."
Pros: "Over a hour late"
Cons: "Over a hour late"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to mechanical failure. Spent all day trying to find another flight out to remain on schedule. Awful experience."

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."
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"

Pros: "The flight was ontime and the crew was warm and friendly."
Cons: "Can't think of anything I dislike about the flight. Service was great!"
Pros: "Ok entertainment. "Bar" setup in the middle galley (water and juice) was nice."
Cons: "The seats are so very narrow that having extra legroom doesn't really matter - only a child or a very, very thin person will find these seats anywhere near adequate. Food (which went flying or falling into my lap as I tried to eat without elbowing my neighbor) was laughably bad, even the crew said they were embarrassed to be serving it. On that note, the crew did not seem happy with the airline, and agreed that economy on the 788 is one of the worst cabins they fly. Entertainment options were good, but when the person in front of you reclines, so does the screen, so if you want to stay more upright you can't really see the screen well. By far one of the worst economy experiences I have ever had. I will go out of my way to chose alternate routes in the future, even going via MIA to avoid the 788."
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: "The ticket counters are a joke. I could not check in the afternoon before my flight or the morning of on my phone, or at the ticket counters in the airport. I don't mind waiting in line but out of the 2.5 hours I waited in line about 30% of that time there was no attendant at the ticket counter, 50% of that time there was only one attendant who spent her time helping first class, and only 20% of the 2.5 hours I waited in line was there still only 2 attendants helping check people in. Because of this, I missed my flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight delayed about two hours"
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: "Cancelled the flight two hours before departure. Weren't apologetic."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. This was my 50th flight this year and first time any airline has no free entertainment. Probably will boycott united on future flights"
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: "Polite and friendly staff."
Pros: "Not really impressed"
Pros: "I overslept my flight and United was able to find the next available flight into Denver which helped me tremendously. The guy on the phone was very pleasant and helped so much."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and hard to understand. Flight was delayed because of paperwork that wasn't signed, which caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "There is no food essentially. No entertainment unless you have your own electronic hand-held device."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "The plane wasn't very clean. And I might have liked another option besides a weird trail mix for a snack."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane."
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "The Embraer ERJ-170 has comfortable seats!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Flight attendant noticed my husbands t-shirt from Galveston and talked briefly about it. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Since it was a smaller plane the seating room was tight."
Cons: "Although the flight was scheduled to depart quite early, it was delayed twice. Weather was good, but incoming flight was late. Then there was no cabin attendant-40 minute delay. Few amenities in Terminal A of JFK."
Cons: "There was a delay with the flight. I wish there had been earlier communication about what was going on, i.e. Why it was delayed, how long will the delay be."
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."
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: "The seats were comfortable and spacious place were awesome :) The snack was very good, the best I had so far while flying. Service was great :)"
Cons: "I didn't like that because I was 4th group to get in the plane, all the space above my seat was full and I had to go put my carry-on quite further down. It didn't cause me any problem because my connection flight had a long layover, but if had not been, I could have been late."
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: "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: "I was very nervous, but the flight attendant made me feel at ease."
Pros: "On time and friendly to Portland as always."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Old plane- lots of noises/raddles. Flight attendant not especially friendly, but that's ok? Wish United went direct from Louisville to Ft Myers. Need to add trip to Frequent Flyer Account"
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: "Held up at check in because of understaffing. Long TSA line. When we finally got to gate wouldn't let us board. Then agent was extremely rude about putting us on a different flight. Have always flown Delta and am sorry I ever strayed. It will never happen again."
Pros: "service was great"
Cons: "Deverted to Newark to get to portland"
Pros: "Very polite, upbeat crew"
Cons: "Newark airport a mess!"
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."
Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence for the 1st hour of flight"
Cons: "Over four hour delay due to "crew unavailability.""
Pros: "The piolets and staff were kimd"
Cons: "The airline kept delaying and canceling the flights with little to no notification, resulting in people missing work, connecting flights, and other important situations. there weren't many employees working at the airport to assist the people who were in unfortunate situations involving the flight, including myself. Overall it was a poor experience flying with United airlines, but that won't stop me from future planning."
Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to find out I had a choice of movies to watch on my iPhone. Be sure to install the United Airlines App so that you can take advantage of this service."
Cons: "We were among the last 10 people to board and with the small plane size we had to gate check bags, but not a big deal."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "If you can tell that overhead storage space is going to be full so much as to pass out the green tags to check at the gate, why not just insist upon it? Instead of making me walk all the way to the back of the airplane and then having to walk all the way back to the front with the bag. Not everyone is familiar with all of your procedures without any explanation for them."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hrs late leaving Louisville and there was no acknowledgement of that or apology from the United staff."
