Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Pros: "Sat in the Key West airport for five hours because of delays. Somehow the other airlines managed to get their people on and off the island. Although they say they can’t land in a 25 mph crosswind we were watching the weather. It mostly stayed below 20 mph for hours before departure"
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Comfortable and food was good and drinks and water was plentiful. I would highly recommend Delta for transatlantic flights,compared to so called 4* airline Aer Lingus, then Delta are a 6* in comparison"
Cons: "Change my seat when I was boarding. I already had my seat # assigned before boarding. Sat next to a man with a strong body odor. I came down with a sore throat last night so I was feeling pretty bad. Then to endure a long flight with that smell which made my trip very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived on schedule just as it should be."
Cons: "There was a mechanical delay and I ended up missing my flight. Even though I arrived 10 minutes prior to departure."
Pros: "Flight timing and gate arrival"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very good. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Unpacking wet clothes from one of my bags. It must have been left out in the rain for some time. I filed a separate complaint with Delta."

Cons: "We left 30 minutes late due to congestion and I missed a layover. Otherwise it was a great experience"
Cons: "My friend and I was switched to an even worse seating when boarding. Very uncomfortable especially for my friend since he had crutches."
Pros: "The crew members were so kind and friendly. I actually did feel more at ease and made my journey more enjoyable. Specifically, was were traveling with guitars and they gave us no hesitation to board early in order to Stowe our instruments safely. They were very pleasant during serving and with requests. The offerings of movies and TV were excellent and extensive."
Cons: "The meal really wasnt very good. But the snacks and beverages we're quite good. Not sure if it is related but the check in/luggage drop process was quite slow."
Pros: "Excellent check in and boarding service"
Cons: "Cleaning of the airplane could be done better"
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice."
Pros: "Excellent gate personnel, spacious and clean plane"
Cons: "Some crew members were a bit curt"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Paid extra for Econ Comfort but still got a seat with no in flight entertainment and they provided no food/beverage services."
Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"
Cons: "Customer service was lack luster..."
Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."
Cons: "The foldable snack tray was broken on the flight to ATL."

Pros: "The boarding didn’t take long at all. The staff and crew were very pleasant and polite. Everything was done in a timely manner."
Cons: "Well you get what you pay for so I’m not really complaining here. The economy seating was a bit cramped. I’m 6 foot and it was not comfortable for me. I can only imagine how it eould be for people taller and bigger than me. Flight was too short for meas. Snacks were good though."
Pros: "I had a window seat"
Cons: "bumpy flight"
Pros: "Not much to like here. The new crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Old crew was surly. Plane had much problems and finally replaced. Left 5 hrs late. Delta claims it doesn't have to compensate for a late flight - just a cancelled one so guess which this was The baggage fees are obscene and the gouging of the customer is immoral. No wonder people hate the airlines."
Pros: "Everything. I really loved that I could track where my checked luggage was, so when I arrived to my final destination I knew my bag was going to be there. The individual TV for my seat, so I could watch what I wanted. Having an USB port to charge my devices."
Cons: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "Delta has always be a step above the rest. Traveling with my children is not a problem and frowned upon with Delta. I rarely choose competitive airlines and will continue to use Delta as much as possible."

Pros: "Ease in ticketing."
Cons: "The hardest part was the long layover. I didn’t dress warmly enough, so I had to keep moving!"
Cons: "The flight was oversold and my daughter and I couldn't check in online and or seats were given away. We were sent to a hotel far from the airport."

Cons: "Todo bien"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, leg room much better than any US airline. Crew is smart and efficient."
Pros: "The staff on board was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Once again the gate crew was rude. I was in line behind a family that had trouble with paperwork and once they finished let them through then sent me to the very back of the last line to board. I do not speak fluent Spanish and when I tried to clarify was told very curtly “ontra linea” and he forcefully pointed to the back of the line and turned away."

Cons: "Regular atención del personal en el aeropuerto"

Pros: "Ontime and pleasant"
Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "The delay when departing, and the attention of the flight attendants. Also very limited kind of beverages."
Pros: "Got my tickets. Good entertainment, snacks."
Cons: "Being late to board, depart. Checked bag not sent to final destination but had to be handled by me at connecting flight."
Pros: "La comodidad la amabilidad de las personas."
Cons: "La comida"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "The fact that we are now charged for baggage and seats similar to the economy airlines. Service is also noticeably worse."
Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly this airline ever again. The movies were OK."
Cons: "We got to the airport and turned out that our flight was delayed so much that we’d miss our connection but the crew at the counter was so incredibly unhelpful it was beyond frustrating. The customer service line was unreachable and basically there was no one to talk to. We’re stuck in Mexico City for a day."
Pros: "Food was good. In flight crew was nice."
Cons: "Food portion was slightly too small. Boarding crew (not on flight but in the terminal) was NOT nice-- I had a garment bag that in past experience does not count as an additional carry on since it can be placed on top of carry-on in overhead bin. Boarding crew member insisted I was over the limit (when though at check-in, the staffer saw how many pieces I had and made no comment) and she insisted I had to check one item AND pay the baggage fee. But this was a problem only because it was a full flight, and I was being punished just because my seat was in a tow closer to the front and boarded later, therefore there was less room left in the overhead bins. Also seemed ridiculous to charge for the first checked bag, with most other reputable airlines, there is no fee for the first checked bag for international flights."
Cons: "The people from aeromexico is like they were mad or having a bad day very bad service overall"
Cons: "Aeromexico in Mexico city has a major communication problem. This is the second time we have flown thru there and found that they don’t update the TVs. You need to ask their agents if you updated information like gate changes."
Cons: "No solution was provided to travelers who needed to be at the destination on the originally scheduled date. Had to spend a fortune on another airline to get tinny destination as Aeromexico offered (and as of yet still has not) no solution"
Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"
Pros: "Plain was comfortable."
Cons: "Food again, just a bar full of sugar!"
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: "The price was the best part"
Cons: "The boarding process"
Pros: "Que fue rápido el abordaje al avión ."
Cons: "Que los asientos no se podían reclinar...el viaje fue super incómodo."
Pros: "leg room boarding"
Cons: "the 3 :45 hour delay for what they said were mechanical reasons. The food is really minimally acceptable."
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: "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: "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: "I was lucky enough not to be put into a middle seat or next to a stranger during this pandemic."
Cons: "No social distancing and no enforcement of wearing a mask properly. Wearing one on your chin or half of your mouth with your nose hanging out needs to be corrected. Empty seats should be utilized for social distancing regardless of fare. First class and the back half of the planes were practically empty while everyone was in the center. We should have been allowed to spread out."
Pros: "The flight was much awesome"
Cons: "The Frodo add more food please"
Pros: "The crew was super nice, they offer me to change my seat to fly with my sister."
Cons: "The pilot"
Pros: "Free entertainment and snack. Customer service was great with my bags and had options for picking up and delivering"
Cons: "My bags were not there when I landed"
Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"
Cons: "Flight attendant kept overhead spaces open for extra coach passengers."
Cons: "less expensive wifi. more confortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was better than my first leg of my trip. They had manners and were attentive."
Cons: "The food and drink selection"

Pros: "Confortable seating and boarding was good."
Cons: "Crew was attentive to process but not the people. Kinda like machines"
Cons: "Bag check fee is steep for students."
Pros: "Meal and drink service was excellent"
Cons: "Economy plus is packed liked sardines and difficult to move from side to side. Also upgrade doesn’t include priority seating. It should be included in any seating upgrade."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane needs updated or put out of service. Uncomfortable for international flights. Monitors were few and broken in the main cabin."
Pros: "It was a quick flight! The crew was nice & the landing went smothly!"
Cons: "It was a full plane!"
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "The crew kept bumping into people and were not a pleasant group."
Pros: "The stewards were very positive in how they served"
Cons: "We had multiple delays. I really did wonder about the ability of the pilate for takeoff because the engine "turned off" before we took off. The headphone connection was broken on the plane so I had to constantly try to move my headphone plug in around to make sure the sound was at least coming through one ear."
Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."
Pros: "Room between rows Entertainment from St Louis to Phoenix"
Cons: "Aircraft issues, late on take off, a gate change, but the ticket against kept us informed"
Pros: "They offered us a little scoop of ice cream."
Cons: "My video screen was busted. Long 9 hrs without anything to watch. Food was cold (as in not reheated after being frozen). Landed at PHL and sat at the gate for 45 min before deplaning, which made us miss our connection. Apparently there’s NO other gate to deplane from than the one they picked. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Pros: "Comfortable and cleaned."
Cons: "Boarding was a little crazy."
Pros: "Boarding was more efficient than I expected. And the leg room was very good, but the seats were narrow. Narrow seats made it a bit uncomfortable for a long 13 hour flight. Crew was efficient and very friendly."
Cons: "The sandwiches were too cold - actually had ice cycles. Narrow seatingwas constricting and entertainment wasn't varied enough."
Pros: "Flight attendant, David, was extremely professional and nice."
Pros: "planes were on time, good flight"
Pros: "The crew in the plane was so happy and funny ! Nice group ! The food was fine, always can be better that’s the true hahahah"
Cons: "The crew from AA in LAX it’s old and they don’t know nothing, our check in take 45 min, because we want to pay a extra bag. Thanks his we went with a lot time extra. American Airlines you need to make a big effort for be better."
Pros: "The flight was lovely from beginning to end. There were no issues."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the information was not displayed on the FIDS until the aircraft arrived at the gate"
Cons: "The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine."
Pros: "Flight was great. Seats were roomy and comfortable. There was a free in flight movie. It was easy to go to the restroom."
Cons: "No space in overhead cabin near my seat. I had to go to the back of the plane to find room for it."
Cons: "The cabin was very warm and almost unbearable. The flight attendant for the first class section was very rude."
Cons: "The staff encouraged me to get on my first delayed flight because my second was delayed as well. But as I landed from my first flight the second flights delay was reversed and I had no notification of this change. I missed my connecting flight. Had to stay in the airport all night, had to fly into a different destination at 7 am. No explanations, no help. Terrible."
Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 1/2 hours They lost my luggage that was checked in as being on the belt but it never came down!!! They never found it and I was standing in front when the first bag came down until the last my bag never came down!"
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "It was very cold, even with my vent closed and wearing a sweater. The food did not taste very good. One of the flight attendants (middle aged Caucasian male) was rude with an overall dismissive demeanor. For example, I requested water and he handed me a cup of warm water while giving everyone else around me a cup of ice with their beverage without being asked."
Pros: "Large selection of movies/TV to keep your mind busy, food is great and plenty of it (liked the additional ice cream and free beer at meals)"
Cons: "I tried to tell the attendant my screen wasn't working but she cut me off and said "it's loading" (it had been loading for 30 min while everyone else's screen was working, but she was gone before I could mention that). I watched my wife's screen for a whole movie and then re-asked a different attendant if they would mind restarting my screen. He did, and it loaded."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "Used system wide upgrade to 1st class. Excellent service"
Cons: "bumpy ride"
Cons: "Both flights delayed. A six and a half hour drive took nine and a half hours by air."
Pros: "The sweet flight attendant on our flight was the only good thing about our experience."
Cons: "Flight of stairs to the shuttle and no working elevator"
Pros: "I got to my flight with ease, my flight was on time and the pilot did an excellent job of taking off and a picture perfect landing . The attendants were quick to respond to my needs, ( I needed some trash thrown away and I had a request for coffee)"
Cons: "More space in coach. If there was a larger person next to me it would have been a different review"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No food, no pillow, stuffed plane of sickness and pathetic drinks on 5 hr flight which I paid $75 to arrive 2 hrs early... this airline is CHEAP. Good things were friendly, sympathetic crew and good movies."
Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful."
Cons: "On the return flight the media equipment did not work."
Pros: "Did reschedule our flight before we left which was helpful -Group 4 but at least we could get home."
Cons: "Paid for seats closer to front to get off for connecting flight. Waste of money as flight was delayed 90 minutes trying to fix the water system which the slow response maintenance crew never fixed. Ended up using Sani-wipes and had no coffee - seemed ok for a relatively short flight and half full plane. 90 minutes to make the decision to just go on resulting in many rescheduled flights."
Pros: "Great Workers, and Super nice staff."
Cons: "The obese person was NOT supposed to sit next to me (in my row) he had the seat in front of me. He saw that there were 2 men in his row, he switched to sit in the middle seat 1 row behind. However, i paid extra to move up and i ended up being squashed, sitting very uncomfortably. The man took up half my seat. The flight attendants knew of the messed up seating but did not correct it. Overall disappointed, they should make sure everyone sat in the right place."
Pros: "Everything was on time. Food and service were very good."
Cons: "My check-in bag was 5 pounds overweight and resulted in a charge of $200. I think this is outrageous."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour and spent most of it taxiing."
Cons: "United, along with American, is a horrible carrier, and the next time it files for bankruptcy, needed to be allowed to remain our of business. The employees don't care about service at all, it's no longer part of their culture."
Pros: "On time & well organized"
Cons: "All good. Average service, or lack thereof, for American carrier"
Cons: "Cleanliness of airplane. Vents and tray tables were very dirty"
Pros: "It’s actually United airline in service. The first flight from Brussels to Washington, everything was great! The crews were amazing, food was surprisingly good. The flight from Washington to Los Angeles was extremely terrible, crews were rude and impatient. Service is like budgeted airlines."
Cons: "More comparable service throughout the journey."
Pros: "Flight was canceled."
Cons: "The female flight attendant was not good"
Pros: "the pilot did a great job, I was looking for him to congratulate him, but I did not see him,"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The food not fit for human consumption"
Cons: "flight delayed by 3 hours. no reason given- effected subsequent schedule..."
Pros: "We seemed to fly faster to make up time"
Cons: "The seats are jokingly small and very uncomfortable. The boarding space was also small so the lines became very unorganized"
Cons: "As stated above, we never made it to Liberia (where we had family waiting for us). We had to fly first to Panama and then to San Jose and figure out a new rental car situation, as we already had one booked in Liberia."
Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."
Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."
Pros: "love the crews handling busy holiday travel"
Cons: "None whatsoever"
Pros: "The flight journey had turbulence, but the landing shows the pilot just not having good skill during landing, extremely rough"
Cons: "Late departure not good with wheelchair disability services"
Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."
Cons: "I bought first/business class ticket for my wife & myself. The sitting was comparable to premium coach level, my overhead bin was occupied by someone else. Food service was acceptable. I am medium built, the lavatory was very tight I felt sorry for larger than my self."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"
Pros: "Groups should board front to back so people aren't squeezing by each other to get to their seats."

Cons: "I don't like that there is no free in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Was able to change seats in order to sit with my wife."
Cons: "3 hour delay."
Cons: "This airline is so beyond awful. American has the most janky planes, uncomfortable seats, and worst service on the plane. I had to beg the flight attendant to get me a wine because I was asleep when they came by and missed them by not even a half hour... She acted like it was so hard and it took asking 4 times and finally just asking another person. I was so annoyed. They also have shitty food selections per usual. Who chooses those snack items?! They clearly have no taste. I was miserable the whole flight. I usually am not a miserable traveler so this isn't just me being negative, I seriously may write one review every few months, only if something is really good or really bad. The fact that I'm even taking the time to write this says a lot!!!"
Pros: "Everything went fine no problems and it was XMAS eve"
Pros: "Everything was good I can't complain thanks for everything."
Pros: "My luggage was cheap but not cheap it was freaking awesome."
Cons: "My flight was delayed hours. You guys didnt give us any food. My family was wiiting in the airport for hours."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Good service on board."
Cons: "For boarding at the gate, attendant scanned boarding passes at one terminal and asked passengers to board next to another terminal across the room. Anyone could have walked onto the plane without a boarding pass, which seems to be a security concern. It felt as if I was seated over the rear wheels of the plane. During taxi and takeoff, there was an irregular bump that made a noise and vibrated the plane every second or so, and sped up as the plane sped up. I was concerned that something was the matter with the tire or wheel."
Cons: "Not even beverage service. Water only"
Pros: "I liked getting a snack and drink. I guess all planes are crowded. I didn't have any carrying luggage so I didn't have to worry about overhead storage- which would have been a problem."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late and during this time the crew instructed us to leave our seatbelts on and remain seated. The crew "didn't know" when were going to leave. No snacks were passed out during this flight or during the time we had to wait. The crew was hiding in the back of the plane giggling and gossiping about people which I found to be very rude. I could hear their whole conversation making my trip a terrible experience."
Pros: "Ticket agent got us on a Delta flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Didnt like the isle seat. Felt a little tight."
Pros: "No delay! Earlier then expected."
Cons: "Not to comfy."
Cons: "I wanted to get on the earlier flight so after checking in I proceeded to the gate to speak with the gate agent about getting on the earlier 11:55 flight. She was no where to be found. Other members of my party that I had traveled with appeared and said they got on the earlier flight because they were looking for people to switch and offering it down stairs where you initially checked in. No body had offered it to me which infuriates me because now I could not go back downstairs through security. I was stuck upstairs waiting for someone in charge to appear. The gate agent arrived 1 minutes before the flight was supposed to board. She told me that it was too late to switch flights and that it should have been done down stairs when I initially checked in. She said they were looking for people which really irked me because no one had offered it to me. She then told me that she gave me the wrong bag tag and switched it out for the correct one. The air port was hot, crowded and smelly. The plane ride was over all okay. We did not start boarding on time (my tickecg said boarding would begin at 12 and we didn't start until about 12:45) and we left a few minutes late. Other than that I was grateful there was a TV on the plane"
Cons: "In flight entertainment is to expensive"
Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."
Cons: "No good snacks to even pay for didn't have time to stop and eat in the airport"
Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."
Cons: "I am only 5 ft tall & petite but felt like a sardine with my knees hitting the seat in front. The overhead bins were so small that they couldn't fit carry ons efficiently so everyone was scrambling for space, delaying the boarding process & heightening frustration & stress. Boarding process was also inefficient causing delays."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was passable"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay due to technical difficulties is completely unacceptable and I need to talk to someone about it."
Pros: "Flights were on time, no delays."
Cons: "Three hour Houston delay; I accepted a change in scheduled flights with less delays and $300 compensation, but the offer was withdrawn without explanation. And had to switch seats in the first leg to redistribute weight."
