Cons: "My flight could have occurred or I could have been refunded."

Pros: "Being on time with everything."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Luggage that had to be checked at the gate was not immediately available when we landed."

Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."

Pros: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Hmm pilots safety records paid over 2500 for comfort eats wanting to feel a bit more special"
Cons: "Food was awful service main cabin mediocre at best I don’t think delta realizes how important all the customers are not just business class as we do have choice out there throwing the piece of chocolate out there at the end to a horrible experience doesn’t make it ok"

Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Used the self check in kiosk to begin! That was awesome! But after that I still had to stand in line to check in my bags. That part of the process took a bit longer than expected."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable and cramped seat I had ever had on a plane flight. Even sitting on the pillow did not help."

Pros: "New plane, charging stations"

Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "My allergies were bothering me due to the airlines allowing animals to travel as passengers, in this case a rabbit. I am very allergic to animals. My breathing was compromised."

Cons: "Couldn’t hear boarding announcements. Lots of boarding confusion"

Pros: "Yes, everything was comfortable and the individual screens with current movies kept the kids occupied with minimal interruptions!"
Cons: "Honestly, while it would always be nice to have a little more leg room. I would like to fly a little more conveniently though as the back of the legs near the knees always gets pressure and cause swelling. Some form of foot rest with a stand might alleviate some of the pressure and ankle swelling."

Pros: "This had one of the best attendants I have encountered. She was extra friendly and made us feel good."

Pros: "Everything is perfect"

Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed.. this cause a lot of inconvienece.."

Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. I also liked that the captain came on and updated us on arrival, turbulence, weather, etc."

Cons: "Flight was delayed out of St. Louis causing several of us to miss our connecting flight from Salt Lake City to Portland. Delta was of very little help in assisting us in making a connecting flight. They could have at least helped with travel arrangements and provided us with a little food, a pillow and a blanket as we waited in their terminal for the next flight on their airline which was a several hour wait. I understand these things happen but the passengers didn't cause the problem and Delta needs to take care of people better if they expect to earn repeat business."

Pros: "Quick and easy."

Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."

Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."

Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great"
Cons: "We were moved to the Exit row, but the woman at the ticket desk said that the seats reclined...BUT they did not!! So, that was a bummer!"

Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."

Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"

Pros: "New aircraft A320"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seatbelts very short given ample seat size"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"

Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."

Pros: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"

Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."

Pros: "Spacious, clean, great host and hostesses. The flight arrived at our destination 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Newer plane! Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing just great"

Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."

Cons: "turbulance"

Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"

Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"

Pros: "On time flight. Comfort seats"

Pros: "You got us there safely."
Cons: "Not sure who is at fault for running out of de-ice solution, but keeping us sitting on the tarmac without air ventilation for almost 3 hours... with only an apology and a last minute glass of water? that was terrible customer service."

Pros: "Flight did not take place because of cancelled return flight. the whole itinerary was cancelled."
Cons: "because of cancelled flight I had to schedule a new itinerary directly through American Airlines. The cost increased from $947.50 to $1,873 plus airport parking for 17 days."

Pros: "We got to our destination safely, and American provided us with extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Service was curt and there was only phone-based entertainment."

Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"

Cons: "Flight connections time was not enough for mam with infant.we missed the flight should better set up that kind of big airport"

Pros: "To be fair. The flight is only 50 minutes. By th time you get a drink it's time to land. It is completely unfair to the staff to have to do that. A flight like that. Have a box with a snack and some coolers that have 5 different beverages. I wouldn't even sell booze. I person can hold out for a flight that shot to get one on the connection or in the terminal."
Cons: "It's always a cramped flight. Nothing to be done except use a bigger, more spacious plane. The good thing is it's the fastest way to get to Chicago from where I lived it would take 6hrs by car."

Pros: "Spacious seats"

Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."

Pros: "I was so happy I could check in online and boarding was a breeze. I actually got to sit by the window when my original seat was in the middle. So nice of the ladies to suggest it to me."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."

Cons: "The video monitor for my seat was broken. So, low entertainment score."

Pros: "everything was on tyime"

Pros: "On time take off"

Pros: "A nonstop flight, with a friendly efficient crew, met my expectations. A crew member went above and beyond when I asked for a coffee stirrer with my coke and ice."
Cons: "I've been spoiled by another airline's access to screens on the back of the headrest. I have my own hand held devices to entertain myself instead."

Cons: "Flight was late, got a message from Kayak that it was delayed 3 hours...thank goodness I happened to check again, because then it was only delayed for 41 mins, then it gave me an update that it was only 21 mins delayed, then went back to 41! Pretty inconvenient, and it would have been nice to get a text, not just some silent pop up"

Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"

Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"

Cons: "good"

Pros: "Flight was on time, staff was friendly and boarding was organized."
Cons: "I'm a small person (5'-2", 105lbs) and I didn't have room to breathe in that tiny little seat."

Pros: "Smooth - trouble free - calm process"

Pros: "Arrived to the airport well ahead of time and encountered lines so long that we were not able to make our flight. Only 2 attendants working and so many people had to be rebooked we didn't get another flight for 3 days. Did I mention I was traveling with a baby?"

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The storage are very small, by the time i boarded everything was full. I had to hand carry bags and i had to put it in front of me which is a very small space already, on top of that i had the window sit so i had no space to move. it was very uncomfortable, and flight was delayed. We sat there for an hour before taking off but i understand its due to the weather but it was my worst plane ride not worth 300dollars. I will not ride american airline again."

Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."

Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "Only suggestion would be to make the connection process a little easier. If the passenger doesn't speak English, the fact you need to print the international ticket in Miami, then re-enter at checkpoint might create confusion."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great and very friendly!"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't very good so I couldn't access the in flight entertainment I also had my own snacks so I didn't buy any food"

Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."

Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"

Pros: "Crew was fine even when we had to sit on the ground for 1 1/2 hours for a repair."
Cons: "American Airlines didn't honor my choice of seats."

Cons: "No food or beverages for me. I slept comfortably on my flight"

Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"

Pros: "I don't know how airlines get away with all the stipulations and regualations they have in the buying process there is. Otho g I like about the scam artist they are"
Cons: "The fact they they can just make it a policy and then because the employees have to have a job and enforce it blows my mind. 200 dollar transfer fee plus the difference in the ticket when it's over two weeks in advance. You people are scam artist"

Pros: "You provide me with the best ticket prices and to me that was the the most important part of of the trip thx"
Cons: "The airlines charging for your luggage"

Pros: "Plenty of leg room no entertainment so I dozed."
Cons: "People stuffing oversized bags in overhead."

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "No Food"

Pros: "One I love free sodies and two I love free sodies with a smile. I definitely got both with this flight crew."
Cons: "Not enough sodies and I couldn't smell my own farts."

Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"

Pros: "Frankly there isn't much to say here. After 7 flights in 2 weeks there was only 1 flight with great staff that actually cared about the customers and looked like they enjoyed their job. The rest treated guests with indifference at best."
Cons: "Customer service is dreadful, the planes are so old they still have cigarette lighter charges in first (but of course no adapters), no food/snacks of any significance, and they seemingly cancel flights at a whim with basically no staff to help re-book the lines of guests that have been disrupted. I pity those who loose luggage AA baggage services are flooded with lost baggage they just don't care any more. Seriously its embarrassing how little they care about customer service."

Cons: "We were delayed for 4 hours, due to a mechanical issue. We were not given any forms of reimbursement. I would like a 500.00 voucher."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being contacted even though reservation was cancelled the day it was made months ago. Caused unnecessary stress that I needed to call Airline to confirm cancellation."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Cons: "Would be nice to know ahead of time if flight is equipped with an in seat television so as to be prepared to bring headphones."

Pros: "We arrived safe."
Cons: "Departure 1.5 hours late. Missed connection. Travel took 16 hours instead of 6 hours."

Pros: "All great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Everything was timely."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "I was very pleased that the attendant gave me a free drink since I had a military ID. It was very kind of her."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times. We were never informed as to why this was. It was very frustrating since I had a connecting flight into Tucson from Dallas. I got off the plane with twenty minutes to get to my next flight which was not in the same terminal. The plane was also incredibly hot while we waited to take off, I was beginning to become uneasy and nauseous."

Pros: "Zero of it"
Cons: "The fact they cancelled this flight for no reason, didn't contact me at all even though they had all of my information and than barely tried to re book me. They wanted me to take 3 connecting the flights the next day. And the next flight I was able to get on 24 hours later, I almost wasn't allowed to check in because they couldn't find my reservation."

Pros: "Airplanes are newer with onboard entertainment of all sorts for both adults and kids alike. Seats are comfortable Checking in was a very quick easy process"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very good service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aircraft, cabin crew"

Pros: "Quick boarding, departed on time, arrived early, good cabin communication"
Cons: "This is a very cramped commuter jet, just one flight attendant to serve entire plane, she came by once for drinks but not a second time"

Pros: "Well, I got there."
Cons: "Purchased economy plus bundle. United employee closed gate in my face at ORD. United Club toilets were filthy and the worst of my problems was the ridiculous selection of teas. (Toilets outside of United Club much cleaner.) I had an economy plus seat, but this did not allow me to board early. So I boarded late and there was no seat in front of me. So I could not put my carry on in front of me. I asked if I could put my bag in top, but attendant told me that I had to ask the first class person in front of me for a favor and thank them for the favor. I did. But this was one of the more disgusting experiences that I have had on an airplane and I paid an extra 100 USD for the privilege of it."

Pros: "Efficient crew. It"
Cons: "It was good overall."

Pros: "the fact that the flight arrived on time without delay and the gates were easy to locate."
Cons: "How on earth did my i arrived lagos and only one out of my two bags showed up, i have to extend my stay in lagos and hoping my bag will come the next day, i have to pay $100 extra just to extend my one night hotel booking to two nights."

Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly."
Cons: "Temperature was way too warm."

Pros: "Got me from point A to B"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing, very skimpy on drinks, coffee maker didn't work. Ask volunteers to move to back of plane to balance out weight."

Pros: "He was the epitome of the Friendly Skies. Chatted with whom wished to chat was quite near those that wanted to snooze on this early morning flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No meal on business, no free internet, no entertainment"

Pros: "smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "hold up to board family with 2 much luggage, overhead bins 2 small"

Cons: "Late night flight to begin with then mechanical issues so more delay which made it later. Chicago ground folks were very good at keeping us informed on the status."

Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly and was on schedule."
Cons: "Overhead compartment filled up and it was hard funding space for my bag."

Cons: "Massive delays on both flights out of O'Hare... No leg room...."

Pros: "Everything was great on the flight- we even got a snack ( stroopwafel cookie reminiscent of when I lived in Amsterdam ) and a drink. I haven't flown united in a while and was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Nothing but my flights were short ( under 1 hours)"

Cons: "Completely missed meeting due to 6 changes made during flight - Ask for a refund of some sort and non was given - not even air-miles or ticket recognition. Customer service from United was almost non existent. Will not be flying with united ever again."

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "It landed in Des Moines 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Flight, when it the air, was fine. But..."
Cons: "We arrived from Tampa about 8:00am to discover shortly later that flight 558 would be delayed to 9:30am. Then at 9:30 it was announced the plane is to be delayed to 10:30. Shortly after that announcement it was announced a gate change and further delay to 11:30. Then another delay to 12:20. finally departed."

Cons: "Little more time between flights would be nice"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."

Pros: "The fact that you serve a small complimentary drink and snack on such a short flight was extremely appreciated. It seems most airlines either won't serve on a short flight or charge you extra. Also, I absolutely love the new seats on the planes you guys have been using for quite a while now. They're much more sleek/minimalist so they don't take up as much room. As a disabled person, the bulky seats still employed by many planes on other airlines are incredibly hard on me getting in and out of the seat isles. The crew was very efficient and kind. I also appreciate the thank you to military personnel that they announced at the end of the flight."
Cons: "My gate was moved a few minutes prior to scheduled boarding. It was a minor inconvenience. Flight was a bit late getting out, but still arrived at designated time. Complimentary Wifi would be pretty nice, but not expected."

Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I am still stranded and was given no accommodations so had to pay for a hotel in addition to costing me a full day's wages in missed work. The United staff I spoke with by phone and in person were neither helpful not pleasant. I will go out of my way to never fly United again."

Pros: "Was able to get on an earlier flight"

Pros: "The crew. Short and sweet flight."
Cons: "Small seats. Bad coffee."

Pros: "I like the seats and the leg space .they were very comfortable ."
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "The delay. It was approximately a 2 hour delay getting to Arcata."

Pros: "Wifi on flight"

Pros: "All the crew were friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Waiting so long for the flight to actually take off. Very late !"

Pros: "Gate agent was great.... Have me an edit row seat. But my 90 minute flight from St Louis, led to a 40 minute wait for my bag"

Pros: "New (to me) lime sparkling soda And a cookie too! Seemed to be a little more seat and leg room."
Cons: "I only wish your branded credit card did not cost$95.00 after first year."

Pros: "we were 10 minutes early to the gate"
Cons: "super cramped quarters, like touching legs to the next person the whole squirmy flight close... the plane was made for little people."

Pros: "Price was lowest for that date and itinerary."
Cons: "Feels like United is second class compared to other carriers. I purchased this for my Morher-n-Law who rarely flies was traveling by herself. there were 7 gate changes 3 day of. I Was very concerned if she would make it."

Pros: "Rain delayed our take off but most of the time was made up. No complaints!"
Cons: "Forced to check our carry on suitcase even though there was plenty of room above the seats."

Pros: "I flew from OKC to Houston and then home to DSM. The price was terrific for a one way flight. I bought at 2:30 am for $130. I checked later the next morning and the price was $455! United Airlines is a great airline. There was a wonderful agent who helped me at the kiosk for check-in. Very friendly. The flight attendant on this flight was very personable."

Cons: "The plane was delayed."

Pros: "Newer plane,"

Pros: "They got me on a flight home that night"
Cons: "I had to wait 4 hours in the St. Louis airport and 4 hours in the Dallas airport. Was a very long day!!!! I do not like to fly American Airlines and that was the only flight that was available. The plains are small and cabin pressure always hurts my ears."

Cons: "Late out of Stl. Missed flight out of Chicago"

Pros: "the fight left on time and had no issues."
Cons: "The size of the seats. The space between the seats. Would it kill United airlines to give up one row of seats and give people a little more leg room."

Pros: "Flight was on time"

Cons: "I wish we would have known ahead of time that we needed our own personal devises to watch a movie. We would have been better prepared. We didn't" have long to download the Intied app and for some it just wouldn't load so they could watch a movie. I also wish there was a better selection of movie to watch."

Pros: "Something to entertainment"
Cons: "Dont have music or screen tv"

Cons: "Last row and packed. United not willing to allow you to upgrade while in the plane, and their mobile app does not offer it either. Not to mention the other crew member dead heading and being less than helpful. Customer Service is not their thing."

Pros: "On time. Quick boarding, very efficient."
Cons: "Stewardess was a little grumpy."

Cons: "Delayed over an hour in STL, which caused me to miss my connection to Hartford. United rebooked me on Delta. I had to go from STL to Newark (United) then to Detroit to Hartford (Delta). I was in airports for over 14 hours. I was 7 1/2 hours late leaving compared to my original schedule and arrived at the hotel the next day. I had 5.5 hours of sleep for an interview that I traveled for in Hartfford. Thanks United."

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to mechanical, re-booked on Delta who had to re-book me on Alaska due to mechanical. An 8 hr trip turned to 22hrs."
