I went there and was told to go back to Terminal C, which was where I was until I printed the ticket at the kiosk and it indicated E. I went back to Terminal C and there was no signage to explain what was going on. So I had to go get in a line to get to an agent, who sent me through the entrance to C gates, where, it turns out, there is a passageway to Terminal E. This was tiring, carrying my bags, and a waste of time."

Pros: "Great snacks"
Cons: "Couldn't control or hear the tv."
Pros: "We arrived early."

Pros: "Wheel chair accommodations. The handler was very nice and polite. He was really good with my granny."
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed for many hours. The departure flight was due to weather - not Jet Blue's fault but the return flight was delayed over 4 hours. We did receive a voucher but it hardly makes up for the extended delay to arrive home."
Pros: "Compensation for delays, great service"
Pros: "The fight was smooth"
Pros: "we were assigned seats in the 5th row with extra leg room that we did not pay for. We were able to watch the bowl games while we were delayed after boarding."
Cons: "the plan was at the gate but the pilot was taxiing at JFK to come to Boston to fly our plane. Then after taxiing we had to return to the gate because of an engine problem so we were more that 2 hours leaving. Worse than that once we go to Charleston we waited more than 45 minutes for our luggage to get to baggage claim. Hard to be very complimentary..."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and pleasant"

Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "4 hours late"
Pros: "non stop service"
Pros: "First time on Jet Blue...good rid."

Cons: "The cold. Ordinarily I think that JetBlue is marvelous Adrian"
Pros: "First time flying with Jet Blue and it was great. Loved the leg room and amenities at every seat."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to enforce all policies. It makes no sense to enforce a seat being leaned back a 1/2 inch but allow a Face Mask be worn as a Chin Guard through the entire flight instead wearing it properly!"
Cons: "AA needs to standardize their WiFi. Sometimes it is boingo, GoGo, or Panasonic or something other. Each has a different way of logging in. It is way too complicated. Sometimes you can watch on the iPad in a browser, other times you need a flash player or the AA app. Have a common way of at least accessing the internet, otherwise it can take 10 minutes to log in if switching from a GoGo yo Panasonic service. It is just too difficult and buggy. I am glad I don’t actually pay for the internet."
Cons: "2 1/2 hour delay; confusing messaging from staff about having to get a hotel because the delay caused us to miss our connection; but then we were told to hurry and get our connection anyway; there's no padding in the seats - very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Leg room. But you know that"
Cons: "Truth is they practice in like cattle. I ended up sitting next to a ginormous woman. It was a very uncomfortable flight from DC to Charleston. Come on American you're better than that quit using such small planes!"

Pros: "I just like flying in general"
Cons: "Flying oo high of the altitude made my ears feel like they’re about to burst."
Pros: "not a full flight"
Cons: "No reason to delay a 55 minute flight to make it over 4 hours just for rain. Absolutely ridiculous and I will be calling and complaining to be compensated for my time."
Pros: "Crew was great! Flight was smooth and on time!"
Cons: "Air conditioning!!!"
Pros: "Nice quick flight."
Cons: "Plane was really small. So we’re the seats."
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. Had a connection that was delayed several times and eventually cancelled without explanation. I was traveling for my best friend's wedding and they did not work with me to try to get me on the next flight. I had to book another flight from another airline."
Cons: "Flight delays twice coming out of Augusta. Barely made connection otherwise flight was ok"
Cons: "Thank you"
Cons: "On time is always better, otherwise it was a good flight."
Cons: "Nothing, it was fast and we arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing you could do, it was a maintenance issue."
Pros: "Great seats w no annoying entertainment console."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "More space for carry on luggage"
Pros: "EAsy boarding"
Pros: "Everything BUT the ticket agent"
Cons: "Key West Ticket agent who also did double duty as boarding agent was so rude and condescending to everyone. Very short and impatient. Speaking to us like we were all idiots. Employees like him give flying a bad rap."
Pros: "Best leg room last leg."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The flight landed early."
Cons: "Seat back in economy was uncomfortable for a shorter person. The head rest pushed my head so far forward that my back and neck were curved so much it caused upper back pain."
Pros: "Not a challenging process from beginning to end."
Cons: "Aircraft seating was terrible! Seats were way too close together. Seats were uncomfortable. Couldn’t even get an entire soda from the attendant. Made me remember why I dislike flying."
Pros: "Flt on time & comfortable. Crew outstanding!!"
Pros: "Premium economy seats/service made the flight much more tolerable than previous overnight flight to Europe. Would definitely fly this class again. Non-stop from Charlotte to Madrid made travel relatively short."
Cons: "However, only reasonable flight options where red-eyes. Would also recommend noise cancelling haedphones."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Boarding lounge and plane were hot. No gluten-free options for snacks. At least I’d had a long layover where I could get a decent meal."
Pros: "The films available were okay, but we had to watch them on our phones."
Cons: "Moved our gate twice, both times the AA boarding crew laughed at the anger they’d caused among the upset passengers. They were also not vocal about the gate changes until pressed. We were asked to sit by the emergency gate as able and willing humans unaware it was placed beside the center bathroom.. so unpleasant."
Pros: "The flight was easy and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Could not get the WiFi to work"
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO LIKE ABOUT THIS FLIGHT."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, the baggage was not transferred on the connecting flight."
Pros: "They left my 72 year old dad without the assistance that was contracted!"
Cons: "The gate attendant wouldn’t talk to me on the phone and my dad couldn’t speak due to a stroke"

Pros: "All good"
Pros: "At least the gate agent was pleasant when she told us she couldn't help us and gave us information to get rebooked."
Cons: "That our bags were late coming off the plane and instead of being able to put them on the connection belt we had to take them up to recheck and rwtag them."
Cons: "the AA flight arriving to Charlotte experienced a door malfunction that delayed deplaning by 15 minutes. Not a big deal unless you had a close connection to begin with. Result was a dead sprint to Charleston gate where no attempt to hold the plane for those passengers. Also, a black, middle-aged woman with short hair working the ticket counter had the personality of a piece of cardboard with zero responsiveness. AA should reconsider who it places to interact with the general public."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The shared screens."
Pros: "Good food & movies."
Cons: "AA gate attendant assigned two of us to the same seat."
Pros: "Staff very courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Old plane did not have individual screens."
Cons: "The bag hanging down from the bottom of the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "customs in miami is aweful. long waits. its a long maze to get back to the domestic terminal as well."
Pros: "I love that there is a direct flight with no connection to get to Key West. The flight leaves at a reasonable hour, and gets to KW in time to still enjoy the day."
Cons: "They still haven't learned to load from the back forward. I do not like to have to pay extra for certain seats."
Cons: "Pretzels too salty"
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "The flight never happened, so all in all, things we're pretty terrible!"
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Cons: "Changed gates 4 times and walked all over the C terminal. Waited for 2 hours on the plane at the jetway for the captain to arrive (with no water). Finally offered 1 small cup of water and 1 bag of pretzels (at 8pm)."
Cons: "Kept getting delayed which I understand wasn’t their fault just frustrating."
Pros: "We did not have to wait long for our luggage."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour."
Pros: "I find airline seats to be getting smaller, even though I have lost 5% of my mass. Perhaps it is my age. My chair at home is a prototype airline seat, designed by a Scandinavian."
Cons: "Entertainment on airlines is "meh" at best, but I prefer old movies. So I bring a book. Then the airline comes up with novel locations for the light switch. Airlines should remember that travelers have just had the "TSA experience.""
Cons: "Flight was late and missed connection. had to stay overnight"
Cons: "Airport staff rudest I’ve ever seen. Terminals extremely close together and over crowded."
Cons: "It seems flights are always delayed or cancelled out of Chicago. My least favorite airport"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "United flew late and we had to RUN to new gate for connecting flight. Old small jet. No phones could be on. Odd folks drug their dog on board and were asked to put it on the floor. ... oh no! !!!!"
Pros: "On time. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "They switched my preselected seat, without my permission, and gave it to a flight attendant that was traveling. I dont understand why she couldn't sit one row behind my preferred seat."
Cons: "entertainment was missing movies it said it had. also kept skipping ahead throughout time. also would have been nice to have a refill"
Cons: "Had to download the United app to watch in flight movies. Then it didn't even work. The only thing that would play were the trailers."
Cons: "The Asian style snack mix was absolutely disgusting. I was expecting a thing of pretzels or peanuts, not a ball of wasabi"
Pros: "On time. Tasty eats. Good crew"
Cons: "Sound in the movies is sub-par"
Cons: "I had a man sit next to me who was in the wrong seat but didn't move. He told the girl to keep his seat and he would stay next to me. He was so big he was in my space and had didn't make any effort to try not to spill over in my area. I had to put a magazine next to my thigh because his body was so hot it was damp! I hated the entire trip. I was cramped up and extremely uncomfortable. This is simply unacceptable to have this happen because huge people can't fit in one seat. I want these obese people to be required to purchase 2 seats because they take mine."
Pros: "Healthy options maybe apples or something, and cheaper for snack packs. Ability to accept cash."
Pros: "The crew was great and the pilot kept us informed the whole trip."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and there s no room to move. The seat in front of you is so close that watching the TV is uncomfortable. The seat pockets have no room for anything - a bottle of water doesn't even fit in them."
Pros: "Free carryon"
Cons: "Couldn't figure out wifi"
Pros: "Crew was accommodating. The flight was comfortable. The plane departed on time. The gate personnel were very helpful. When I got off the plane and saw that I did not have a gate assignment, one of the crew pulled out their phone, opened an app, and based on my flight number, told me what my gate was and where to go for the tram. Thank you!"
Pros: "Boarding , good communication"
Cons: "Crying baby + woman behind me non stop talking very loud during flight"
Cons: "Flight was at 0700. Delayed until 0831 then 0900. Then we were taxi-ing for an hour. Didn't depart until a little after 1000."
Cons: "The cabin smelled like an unflushed toilet. That should be enough!!!"
Cons: "Sat in plane on runway for an hour"
Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."
Pros: "Plane side checked bags. Kind flight crew."
Cons: "Perfect weather. Delayed an hour."
Pros: "The seamless service from reservation to arrival at destination"
Cons: "Would have appreciated a lower fair"
Cons: "Blaring advertisements during taxi are quite annoying. I'm not buying your service for a 1 hour flight."
Pros: "United continues to disappoint. I'm turning in my miles membership. I've tried to be loyal but enough is enough"
Pros: "I arrived two hours early to the airport as specified and arrived to find out my flight was delayed by over four hours. So my daughter and I had to sit in the airport for over six hours."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled after a 10 hr delay. No compensation offered. Told us too bad so sad. Pushed us off onto American and acted like they were doing us us a favor. Today was the day I swore my allegiance to Southwest Airlines. I don't care if you gave me a lifetime supply of flights and the CEO, your business model pales in comparison to that airline. Disgusted is the only word I can use to describe my experience. Save the hassle, use southwest even if it costs more."
Cons: "Everything. Worst travel day ever"
Pros: "I am fine with the airline other than a 5 hour delay. I I will never use Kayak again."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and no reasonable accommodations when I asked about a month ago to cancel and was told non-refundable or additional charges for changes"
Cons: "It was terrible. It was ridiculously hot and the plane smelled like pee. It was the worst flight experience my fiancé and I have ever taken. Shameful condition and experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I payed for my flight about a month prior and for some reason still did not have a guaranteed seat on the flight and almost got left behind"
Cons: "Both domestic flights got cancelled. I lost the first day of my vacation and had to miss an extra day of work on the way home."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "They lost my husbands luggage from Morgantown to Charleston and we sat for about 10 minutes with no gate in Charleston when we landed!"
Cons: "The Gate was changed several times with very poor announcement. Entertainment is N/A on these type of flights."
Pros: "Everything was very painless from booking to flying! This was my first time flying United and I'm very impressed and excited to fly with them again in the future. I had an hour delay on departure that caused me to miss something but when I called united to move my return flight due to this they handled it great! Based on that alone I feel myself become a loyal United customer! How you handle mishaps means the world to someone like me!"
Pros: "Loved that it was an empty flight"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Arrived on time. Fast boarding"
Cons: "A little turbulent"
Cons: "Plane too small to support carry-on suitcases, so everyone had to check them gate side and then wait for them right outside plane. All the hassle of carry-on (carry belongings through airport) without the perk (having belongings available during flight)."
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth, crew were friendly."
Cons: "It was freezing cold in the plane. People were putting on sweatshirts and jackets and covering up with blankets. Why should we be required to bring winter clothes with us when plane interiors are temperature-controlled?"
Pros: "I liked that it got me to my destination"
Cons: "No entertainment, really uncomfortable, arm rest don't go up, planes are not cleaned from previous passengers, flight attendants hardly smile and don't interact as much as other airlines, delayed flights every time I fly with United."
Pros: "Good service, nice plane interior, Everything on time. Only problem was that the seats were uncomfortable!"
Pros: "That it was short"
Cons: "Boarding a small plane on a cold rainy day by waking along the tarmac out to the plane. umbrellas are wet and wind insures passengers are wet before getting on board. A experience I hope to not relive. Oh drop the Asian "Style" snack and bring back peanuts"
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Airport was horrible! Security line was 45 min. long and on the other side of the world. The plane was an hour late! No snow. No storms. Why? The crew, I guess tired, seemed bothered by the company of the passengers. The line to wait at the gate was very unorganized and confusing. No one knew which line was for which gate and people where cutting into lines everywhere. The airlines should provide better guidance for its passengers. I was connecting from Germany with Lufthansa and wow what a difference in customer service."
Cons: "A delay for one hour and 30 minutes. That Sucks"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hoursvwirh no explaination. Checked in early and was given a boarding pass with the wrong name on a flight to the wrong city. Hate agent in KW said she would call us up to rebook us on 1:06 flight and never did. Most passengers could not understand the flight attendants announcements. Very poor experience. Better from FLL to KW."
Cons: "Flight was late Unacceptable"
Pros: "Friendly crew and staff"
Cons: "Some snack"
Cons: "The airline canceled the flight so had to stay over night in FL... now I am paying for a room and having to pay for a boat I am not even on. This is a very bad airline"
Cons: "Seats were very tight. I’m 6’ tall and 215 lbs and felt like I was in a child seat."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have a backup plan when the boarding system goes down so that the flight had not been delayed."
Cons: "Be on time, I have to rent a car and drive to be able to get another flight to get home , I will never again use this airline"
Cons: "crappy, dirty plane. Obnoxiously loud intercom system. will not plan to fly on Silver again."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Plane was EXTREMELY LOUD there and back."
Pros: "I didn't have a panic attack. It was a fast flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed"
Pros: "Nice flight attendant."
Cons: "What's the value on having a "partnership" between 2 airlines but when you use them you have to change terminals and go through security? I was traveling with my mom who needs wheel chair assistance and a toddler in a stroller. Very inconvenient to walk such a long distance and go through security again. And I didn't receive any notification of this when booking flights. Passengers should be aware of this when booking."
Pros: "Flight and crew were good."
Cons: "Would like earlier notifications of delay. Silver knew that the plane was not enroute 2hrs prior to them posting the delay."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very loud and very hot!!!"
Pros: "Crew was courteous"
Cons: "Flight to Key West was delayed by over 5 hours. Flight home was delayed by over 2 hours. Weather was perfect way home so definitely was not a weather issue. Appears to be a disorganized company. Would or recommend."
Pros: "No bad weather anywhere in flight vicinity, no airplane on ground to fly, none to very little information given on why no flight, gate agent saying not to worry, they will try to have a flight tomorrow"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The flight was delayed so I missed my connection. A united member was supposed to come get me and didn't make it to the gate. No one even appologized."
Pros: "Easy plane to deal with"
Cons: "Warm on the runway, while waiting in the plane to take off"
Pros: "The kind, saint of a Silver Airways gate worker who spent quite literally 3 full hours dealing with the botched planning of United and Silver Airways. After being turned away multiple times and waiting on hold for what seemed like an eternity she finally was able to get me rescheduled for a flight on American Airlines the following Morning."
Cons: "Weather was terrible in Florida, so as expected there were some delays. Sitting in Key West airport I watched Delta and American Airlines depart flight after flight while we, the suckers who booked through United and Silver Airways, sat for 5 hours. The gate worker in Key West and two United Airlines call center workers were completely useless in helping me reschedule the flights that I was going to miss (even with a 5 hour layover at my next stop). The airline blames the entire thing on weather, yet no other airlines were suffering from 5+ hour delays. It's my opinion that early on in the day Silver Airways mismanaged the movement of their aircraft which exacerbated the delays experience by thousands of passengers."
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "Booked United flight, tried to check in on the app. Said i couldn't check in because it was a Silver Flight. Tried to check in through Silver, also got denied. Then the flight was delayed because they had to kick 5 people off. When we boarded said we were still too heavy so started kicking off unaccompanied minors. Tried to kick me off, told them I'm 27 and got accused of looking way younger. Thought I was gonna get kicked off. Finally took off- my seat was in the last row and seat back was broken so I was sinking into the back of the plane getting poked by metal so had to sit straight up whole flight. Plane was so small and old I was terrified the whole way. Finally land and pilot says they are understaffed so had another delay. Then the shuttle trains at airport were broken so had even more delay. I was so late I almost didn't graduate. Did I mention TSA machine incorrectly identified an object in my anal cavity? Hindsight would have rented a car and driven 6 hours than take this 1 hour flight. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "Short duration . Great flight!"
Pros: "Quick flight, crew was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Again, flight is marked as delayed. Decided to double check one last time, come to find out the pilot is standing at the gate and they're already beginning to check people in and getting them ready to board. No announcements, nothing. Just ready to board after half the flight wasn't even at the gate"
Pros: "Denise the fight attendant was very nice and let me off the plane first so I can try to make my connection in a different terminal"
Cons: "Flight boarded 45 minutes late while the plane was waiting with the crew to board for an on time departure. I missed my connecting flight and the gate attendant was not helpful with getting me in touch with my airline to see about getting another flight. The ground crew was completely disorganized and couldn't give answers as to why we were delayed."
Pros: "The flight was fine. Food and entertainment is not applicable because the flight was only 35 minutes"
Cons: "They did not put the luggage on the baggage carousel after landing, but left it sitting who-knows-where -- underneath the airport, or outside the terminal -- and didn't want to look for it without an argument"
Cons: "Never made it to Key West due to weather and airline would not rebook. Made passengers purchase an additional ticket without any voucher. Will not fly this airline again."
Cons: "The long delay's. 1st one only 25 minutes, than another 45 minutes and finally the last one made it a total of 1 hour and 18 minutes."
Pros: "No real issues"
Cons: "Their TSA pre check system didn't work."
Cons: "Getting our bags in Tampa took FOREVER."
Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff"
Cons: "Small plane. Prop not a jet. Have to climb in and out via a ladder. Flight was late leaving."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Poor communication"
Pros: "Silver Airways got us to our destination on time and no fuss. We hadn't flown with them so had no expectations but it was all fine. It was a short flight."
Cons: "45 flight was delayed over 45 min.... for paperwork. Trying to make a quick puddle jump turned into an all afternoon affair. Would have rather spent the $ for a bigger airline that was on-time. If they could get their program together it would have been great."
Cons: "The staff from checking in to leave to and checking in to leave from our destination was rude and non-involved. When we checked in to fly out the person who checked us out didn't make eye contact nor said a single word. Nothing. Not good morning......nothing. Same when we were leaving......awful communication skills. It was as if the entire staff for silver didn't care at all."
Pros: "Flight was good crews were good"
Cons: "I could not check in from my phone"
Pros: "Nice staff. On time."
Pros: "Flights was ok but was 30 minutes late."
Cons: "When I got to Fort Lauderdale no luggage was there . I ask silver airlines and they said everything was uoaded from the plane. Then they called Key West and my luggage was never loaded. I was at the airport at 9:00am and my flight left at 12:45pm approximately. How can you not load my luggage. I finally got my luggage at 1:10am on Sunday ."
Pros: "Unable to pre-check on line. Seats were very uncomfortable. Non stop service was very much appreciated. The staff were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Everything. Late departure is normal for them because their schedule seems to be totally unrealistic and their incoming flights are always late arriving, hence delaying the onward flight. the baggage handling was a joke. On the one hand you could say they were very quick in delivering the checked bags to the carousel but on the other hand they were totally incompetent because the moment the bags arrive they apparently cart them off to their office and lock them up while their employees go off to do other things. In the time it took us to walk from the gate to baggage claim our baggage had been carted off to the office and we had to wait over an hour for the next Silver arrival to find an employee who could open the office and deliver our bags. Additionally there was never any information about the flight on the screens in arrivals and we had to ask a lady at the FLL information desk for help."
Pros: "very efficient got us in ahead of schedule good job"
Cons: "price is high for short flight"
Pros: "The flight was fast and somewhat comfortable. Easy boarding, easy off the plane."
Cons: "No beverage service, but they gave us free bottled water! Only small luggage fits in overhead compartments, easy to gate check your carry on bags and pick them up as the plane offloads."
Pros: "The flight was efficient and comfortable."
Pros: "Easy to get off and on. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating. No hookups on some flights and $$ on others"
Pros: "Getting off the plane!"
Cons: "Lack of AC! Seats horribly uncomfortable! Horrible"
Pros: "I have had bad experiences with Silver delays but today was awesome!"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "I would've liked the option to purchase a beverage other than water."
Pros: "First time and will be back"
Pros: "There were only 6 passengers and we had 5 of them. Silver Airways first delayed the flight for 4 hours then cancelled due to "unknown" reasons. It was because its easier to get hotel rooms for 6 people than reroute in different airlines. We requested a refund and drove to Orlando. Very long drive and didn't get to Orlando until 1 AM, but better treatment than we got from Silver Airways..."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Poor service during bad weather. I ended up at an airport different than my reservation. And because my connecting flight was with Southwest and not one of your "partners" I had to pay $500 to change my flight. I will never use Silver again"
Pros: "It was a puddle jumper."
Cons: "The water could have been cold but otherwise fine."
