Pros: "Total Experience of Flying on this Airline ."
Cons: "No Comment."

Pros: "Despite the turbulence and delay, this was possibly the best flight I've ever been on. I have never been treated so well by a flight crew before. Also, the attendant at the gate managed to get my wife seated next to me when our seats ended up separated. Great experience!"
Cons: "Turbulence and delay was bad, but the flight crew made up for it."

Cons: "Could not get seats assigned until day check of check in. We did get seat together. Asked clerk said no booked . Seat did not recline. Saw crew had one row for themselves."

Cons: "The airline booked us on two flights from SLC to BWI. Unfortunately, our seats on our original connection were released so when we arrived at our gate our only option was to split up and take middle seats - even though we had paid over $100 ea. for upgrades. Delta offered nothing for this. One of the flight attendants was in a terrible mood - she was cold and rude and would not even look at passengers - which her fellow crewmates noticed and tried to compensate for."

Cons: "Staff not attentive to customer needs. I asked for a blanket and the stewardess never came back to me."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Good flight. Typical air travel"

Pros: "Crew were friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 times, didn't land in ATL until almost 4 a.m. Still was charged for bags and when I called in to reschedule so I could get another nights sleep they said next flight wasn't until 10 the next day and there was charge for that. Also my flight from ATL to Boston earlier that week was delayed 3x. Overall not impressed with this connection. Meanwhile another flight to Boston from ATL left and I was not notified or selected for this change."

Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "I was separately seated from my husband and had to seat in the middle because my ticket status was economy"

Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."

Pros: "Bulkhead seats - logos legroom"
Cons: "Very long boarding process - security checks and a long walk from connecting flight"

Pros: "Entertainment options"

Pros: "Frequent food offerings throughout the flight."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was not easy. We had to show our passports to a man who quizzed us on where we were coming from, where we were going, and asking questions about our luggage. After that we had to go through another security point and scan our boarding passes, but most people could not get through with our boarding passes, so we had to get in another line to show our passes to our agent. It was very stressful since we were running late since the border control line was so long! While it was stressful, I am glad that they were careful regarding the security,"

Cons: "I'm Sky Priority and the gate agents were not enforcing zones. They called Diamond and everyone walked in. I went in and saw zone 3 in the line"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I accidentally had my name entered wrong on my ticket and no one was able to help me change it. Thus I missed my flight and couldn't Even get a partial refund. Ridiculous. I now had to pay 2300$ for the same flight the next day."

Cons: "They should have separate lanes on boarding like United. Then people can line up in the appropriate group."

Pros: "Felt like cattle in a tiny plane. Service took what felt like years. The only reason I didn't give it 1 star was that it arrived on time."
Cons: "Service and size of plane."

Pros: "Flight, plane, and crew were great."
Cons: "MEX customs was a nightmare."

Pros: "Flight was late, lost my conection and gave me a flight for next day"

Cons: "The space between seats is tiny, even when I paid more, no internet during the fly, old movies, nothing new"

Pros: "Movie selection was excellent. The package of peanuts was pretty small."
Cons: "package of peanuts was very very small. I think for a flight of that length, a larger snack would be appropriate"

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "A more organized boarding process"

Pros: "Crew was good, food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment, I saw the Wifi stuff when I bought the ticket, but there was no internet connection there. Besides, no movies, no screen... boring."

Pros: "Crew members gave out extra snacks toward the end of the flight."

Cons: "Over booked"

Pros: "The seats were a bit cramped, and didn't recline much, but they were okay. The attendants were nice."
Cons: "The lunch/dinner was kinda lame, but most airlines give you nothing these days, and the booze was free, and they gave you two rounds, so it was better than most."

Pros: "Nice, new plane"
Cons: "Check in not organized well. Unhelpful staff. Likewise on board: mediocre service (particularly given it was medium haul business class). Was vastly under the standards of practically every other airline I have tried (and I have tried a very large # in all continents)."

Cons: "Just good!"

Cons: "Flight departure was delayed when other airlines where flying out and we were told we couldn't take off due to fog at the Tijuana airport. But many of other airlines with same destination were taking off. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Luggage was found that was good"
Cons: "Horrible day nobody here to guide you or help you and then charge you an arm and a leg."

Pros: "Efficient boarding clean cabin"

Cons: "No choices for breakfast and the one served on first class not so great."

Pros: "Even with the flight almost full the crew managed to accommodated us together, excellent team work"
Cons: "Booked 6 days prior the flight and the put my wife and I in separate seats between strangers"

Pros: "Servicio. Puntualidad."
Cons: "Todo bien"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, leg room much better than any US airline. Crew is smart and efficient."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and very welcoming."

Pros: "Food and crew are good."
Cons: "The information in the web site it's confusing. I check in online, and still had to wait 30 minutes to check in my baggage. The seat I was assigned, it's the worst seat I ever had. It doesn't make sense to check in 3 hours early and get 30C in an airplane with 30 been the highest number. In top of it, your staff receving the baggage needs better training and more help. They get overworked and discharge their frustration with the customers."

Cons: "Rough Landing"

Pros: "Vuelo acorde con el horario establecido"
Cons: "Regular atención del personal en el aeropuerto"

Cons: "Crew standing in the back talking to each other with their backs on us"

Pros: "Mileage was credited to my account of SKY TEAM immediately. Many movies are available."
Cons: "A staff on the check-in counter requested me to show eTA of Canada. I tried to log in my e-mail account that received the eTA before. But IP address was Peru. So the e-mail service provider didn't allow me to log in. I suffered from proving that I received eTA. I had to spend much time on collecting and showing all the itineraries related to Vancouver. So I could never visit the VIP Lounge for Business Class passengers because of insufficient time.I had to go to the gate directly to avoid my flight. It was very hard time."

Pros: "Close for connecting and had lots of staff to get you there on time."
Cons: "Food mediocre"

Pros: "Having a direct flight from Mexico City at a great price with excellent service, what's not to like about it!"

Pros: "Best entertainment"

Pros: "The in flight meal was just what we needed and they got us to San Jose safe and sound. No complaints!"

Pros: "Ontime and pleasant"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "It was a direct flight."

Pros: "La comodidad la amabilidad de las personas."
Cons: "La comida"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "People make you feel dumb when you have a question or they need to repeat something they mentioned before. Is very hard to understand sometimes trough the speaker."

Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."

Pros: "Mix up with Aeromexico and delta. Long story."
Cons: "Confusion with Aeromexico and delta printing boarding pass."

Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"

Cons: "No entertainment options. No vegetarian meal. No adjustable headrest."

Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."

Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"

Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"

Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."

Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a bad mood that night. One of the flight attendants hit my elbow as he was speeding through the aisle, causing me to knock over my drink. He didn't apologize or try to help. The other one"

Pros: "I liked the friendly staff and the entertainment."
Cons: "It took far too long to leave the runway."

Pros: "the inflight movie."
Cons: "The flight was suppose to take off from Mexico City at 945 PM however nobody gave an explanation nobody knew the time or even the GATE I got to the airport at 6 PM, the flight took off at 1210 AM not only that I get on the plane and the AEROMEXICO crew had a really messed up attitude like they didnt care, I wanted to buy a gift for my wife from the magazine they had and the lady with a attitude simply said we dont have it, and I could keep going but It was a really bad experience for me."

Pros: "the crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was a little delayed movies or series might be interesting to have as an option to watch"

Pros: "Exc"

Pros: "La tripulación"
Cons: "Son aviones poco cómodos me da la impresión que son viejos nada modernos Todo les suena cuando aterrizó Pensé que eran mejores La ida a México no tenían pantallas por tanto un viaje aburrido El regreso por lo menos tendría una pantalla"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "The meal was cold"

Cons: "The check in"

Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant enough"
Cons: "We are treated like cattle in general."

Pros: "Crew was nice and comfort was okay."
Cons: "There was no internet most of the flight it only worked for the first 20-30 minutes of the flight then they tried resetting it but it didn’t work for the rest of the flight."

Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "boarding delay, we must arrived at 13:48hrs, but our flight return to miami due to problems in navigation, we have to await at airport and arrived at Guatemala at 18:30hrs."

Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The airline brought out some snacks for the passengers after an hour or so."
Cons: "There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. The flight was delayed longer than the travel time to the destination."

Pros: "The crew was fine the seats were horrible. I will not fly American again as this is the second trip I took in the last year one to Japan one to Greece. Both times I felt like a sardine."
Cons: "2 inches in both directions."

Cons: "Difficult time connecting to wifi."

Cons: "Staff at Pensacola airport not very helpful or friendly."

Cons: "There was a delay on the departure"

Cons: "WiFi entertainment not working"

Pros: "I got to converse with the pilots before getting on board, and they were super awesome guys. Flight attendants were attentive and checked in frequently enough."

Cons: "Flight was delayed about 10 minutes. :("

Pros: "crew made me feel guilty to change my paid for seat so a married couple could sit together and I was solo"
Cons: "choice of snacks or food"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "Limited leg room for such a long flight. The person in front of my husband reclined their seat and he could barely move for the 8 hour flight. Check in process at Heathrow was not wonderful as there was plenty of seats but were not open for people to sit in. It was not pleasant holding a 33 pound toddler waiting in 30 minute line"

Cons: "Food was payable so should not even be a criteria here We had to collect our luggage coming from portugal to check them in Again in Miami. Really a burden. After 20 hours flying this was really annoying. Again Iberia saving money at the cost of clients"

Pros: "Well the food was very good. Which i didn't expect how good it was. And the crew were nice people."
Cons: "well we were delayed twice. One in Schiphol and the other in Philly. Wasted my time and everyone elses."

Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Cons: "-"

Pros: "Please get a terminal that lands at Bradly terminal. busing around and waiting like cattle is not fun. I am sure First Class also feels this way."
Cons: "excessive wait and shuttling."

Pros: "Flight was delayed by approximately 90 minutes. Attendant was friendly."

Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "Flight was very oversold. I purchased an aisle seat and had to give it up to a family that needed to be together. Would be nice if the airlines didn't charge more to pick a seat so situations like this could be avoided."

Pros: "The aircraft was perfect :)"
Cons: "The new basic economy fair. My tickets were booked before this happened and I was requested to pay my carry on"

Pros: "AA staff in Guatemala are great, everything else about AA is bellow any other airline, definitely the worst airline."
Cons: "AA is the worst airline in everything, but worst of all is the AA staff attitude in Miami airport, AA staff in Guatemala are great."

Pros: "Nothing, American Airlines is the worst major airline now."
Cons: "The staff in Miami Airport is really bad, worst attitude I have seen, old planes, not comfortable, definetly the worst major airline now."

Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "I wish more food"

Pros: "Excelent!!!!"
Cons: "All except the food."

Cons: "Unsatisfied and spent over an hour on the tarmac waiting For a gate change that was not communicated. We sat and waited for an hour while some “carts were moved” from the gate. And now we’ve been waiting on our bags for 30 minutes. I have high expectations for AA and have had great experiences in the past. I will reconsider using this airline in the future."

Pros: "Nothing to like. If I could give them 0 stars I would"
Cons: "Tight connection from our previous flight yet the counter folks were rude and rushed us. My daughter is obviously 7 months pregnant. Because our connecting flight left milwaukee over an hour late, we had no time to even grab a sandwich, no problem we will buy food on the plane. Wrong! The food is was gone so quickly that by the time they got to us, they were out of everything. Oh did I mention we also had 3 children ages 2, 7, and 9. Oh yes and the entertainment? Small screens mounted on the ceiling of the plane. How about updating your equipment?? Plane was old. No USB to charge your phone and stream from their App. Terrible. We own a 2nd home in Maui and travel there twice per year. Looking at other options."

Cons: "Flight was delayed because the attendant was coming from a different destination."

Pros: "Except for narrow seats, all fine"
Cons: "Narrow seats (we were in exit row, so plenty a leg room)"

Pros: "3:00 flight to Boston left at 2:59 and only took 42 minutes"
Cons: "Gate not ready so we had to wait 15 minutes on tarmac"

Pros: "Crew were pleasant Arrived safely"
Cons: "Seats are way too cramped especially for my broad shoulders. Beverage service was minimal"

Cons: "No screens in each seat."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Due to the apparent regularity of excessively delayed American Airlines flights, they had the staff at O'hare bring a cart filled with cheap canned juice and Diet Soda to lessen the blow of their consistently delayed flights."
Cons: "Like every other American Airlines flight I've ever been on, it was delayed. Including the American flight from Denver to Chicago. We pay entirely too much money to these airlines for them to deliver such painfully mediocre service and consistently delayed flights. I recommend that this airline do a SERIOUS audit of their Preventative Maintenance/Service division across their hubs. If I fly American, I would bet my entire checking account that the plane will be delayed well over 2 hours."

Pros: "The speed of service"
Cons: "We had several rude flight attendants"

Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"

Pros: "The customer service"
Cons: "Not having a TV available is reflective of the poor rating for entertainment. Better organization with boarding- calling groups 1-6 within a 3 minute span makes for unnecessary commotion that could easily be avoided"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Two hour plus delay in plane on tarmac then long flight with entertainment not working. Crew could care less."

Cons: "Becasue I was in boarding group 8, I was advised to again check my carry-on bag. When I boarded (almost the last person to do so), there was an empty overhead compartment directly across from my seat. I had to wait 30-40 minutes at the carousel to collect this carry-on bag. I could have just gone directly to my car as I had no other checked bags. Very poor service. I will avoid booking with American Airlines in the future."

Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."

Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Service and flexibility, needed to call online for assistance"

Cons: "I am so tired of people reclining back in my lap. It has happened for the last 3 times I have flown. The last flight the man reclined before we even took off and he was not instructed to put his seat up. There is no room for the tray table when the person reclines in front of you. I am sick of looking at fat bald heads during the entire flight. Wifi also sucks."

Pros: "Streaming entertainment with great choices Not too crowded so got my upgrade"
Cons: "Food was disgusting... bland cheese lasagna or small wet noodle salad with piece of chicken. This menu has been going for years! Old B757 No sparkling water but 75 variations of Coca Cola"

Pros: "Excellent no fuss service on board. One of the flight attendants was wearing uggs boots which some might find odd but who cares when the service is done with a smile. Very comfortable seats, great entertainment system, food choice was good and what i had was flavoursome. And they give you noise cancelling bose headphones."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The plane was really nice."
Cons: "The food was not good."

Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled. My rescheduleday flight was delayed and I missed my connection and had to spend the night in the airport. My 2 1/2 hour flight turned into a 16 hour trip."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "We didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything. No charging no entertainment food was awful. Few was meh. But you sure got your money didn’t you"

Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"

Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Cons: "Flight to Houston delayed due to air traffic"

Pros: "Crew was great and seats were comfy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "On time departure, no kinks, good seats."
Cons: "Gate changes"

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Cons: "Eveything"

Pros: "Staff and the pilot got us to our destination safely and with out complications."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: ". Easy boarding, snacks, overall, everything was great!"

Pros: "I had an excellent flight, really US NAVY we all fly awesomely. Thank You."
Cons: "N?A"

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The United flight out of LaFayette left late. We told them we had a connecting flight to Phoenix. They told us to "run". We ran about a half mile to the other gate for them to say we were too late. So yeah stuck overnight in Houston and not sleeping in my own bed tonight and missing work tomorrow morning. Not acceptable."

Pros: "Really short flight. Everything was up to par."

Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."

Pros: "I'm not a frequent flyer so I can only compare to my 2 United trips (1 last year and the most recent) but the experience was great. Thanks"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."

Pros: "My flight was rescheduled so I hope I did not get charged for another flight."

Pros: "The flights were all on time, we had no problem getting through TSA, despite the fact that the airport tonight open until 4 AM for our 530 departure from Lafayette, Louisiana . United agents were there to get us through quickly at 4:15 AM. Because we were being met in Managua at noon and moving in with families that afternoon, there was a little margin for error."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "The time of departure was 5:30 AM, and I was concerned that we'd have trouble with TSA, competing with other early morning flights at a small airport whose terminal only opens at 4 AM. But the United ticket counter handled us efficiently and we were seated in the boarding area at 4:25."
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Everything went smoothly and we arrived in Nicaragua on time and the rest of our complicated plans for the day went perfectly. And that wouldn't have happened if we had run into glitches."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"
