Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I’ve been flying for 30+ years and never before seen a plane that didn’t have air conditioning/vents at each seat. On top of that, there was no WiFi, the bathrooms were disgusting and they were charging something ridiculous (like $12) for BLANKETS. Hawaiian Airlines is maybe a step or two above Spirit or Fronteir, which is not saying much. Maybe they could take some of the money they’re making charging for blankets and use it to refurbish their gross, decrepit aircraft."

Pros: "Gate agents were helpful"

Cons: "Boarding procedure"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The delay caused by HA"

Pros: "Overall."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was great. Very oroficient"

Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "No leg room with Silver (raft or?) under seat."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Meal included."
Cons: "45 min late departure due to a coffee maker leaking."

Pros: "Very nice people and they didn't hassle us about carry on bags like the other inter-island airlines"

Cons: "No timely info provided prior to and during the delay. Except for the fact that there was no acft at the gate there was no announcement of a delay. A Delta passenger rcvd a text about the delay, but nothing from HAL. No one around to answer questions till the end of the second delay was near."

Pros: "Hospitality"

Cons: "Really disappointing that on both our flights we had no option to watch any movies or tv and no worries-fi for purchase. Seems like basic thing to expect on flights these days and especially this long with families. Also freezing cold. All passengers on right side of aircraft were miserable."

Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "I like that they actually serve food, snacks, drinks, complimentary glass of wine, and everyone is nice!"
Cons: "I had my own entertainment so I was fine with my iPad, but some airlines have tv's for everyone! Their movie screens played Hawaiian music videos, after one I was bored! Too many waterfalls, which is something I never thought I'd say"

Cons: "The baggage took almost an hour to be retrieved. Specifically the staff was inadequate to unload baggage. The last things to be returned were all of the car seats, meaning the already late flight for families waited over an hour to leave the airport."

Cons: "Still waiting for luggage 45 minutes after arriving!"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Extra cost for bags and no Snacks."

Pros: "The crew was super nice, and the rest of the experience felt like it was designed around us being as comfortable and happy as possible."

Cons: "The security guard made me go through security twice and then pointed me in the wrong direction to the gate and made me miss my flight"

Cons: "Let me start by saying.. I never ever leave negative comments; and two, I apologize for th long winded message.. but I'm still fuming!! My husband and I both had smaller roller carry on bags traveling with us. When we approached the plane through the gate, the Hawaiian Airlines staff told us there wasn't anymore room for our bags, and that they would have to be checked. Whenever this has been done on other airlines, they always return your bag to you as soon as you get off the plane... not this time! Our bags were sent to baggage claim, and we had a connecting flight with a very short layover window! This means that we were FORCED to leave the airport area, retrieve our bags from baggage claim, go through security AGAIN and almost miss our connecting flight! I expressed to the crew immediately after we got off the plane our situation and that we were never even given an option to give them our bags as we would have never opted in for going all the way out and all the way back in to get to our connection (SO stressful!!). Make a long story short, the staff lied to us about where our bags were going, were NOT helpful when I told them that we needed our bags, and showed no concern or sympathy that we may miss out connecting flight because of their mistake. Winded, mad and extremely late.. we barely got on the connection.. NO THANKS TO THE HAWAIIAN AIRLINES STAFF! Will never fly Hawaiian again!"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "would like complimentary TV channels and movies"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Additional fees everywhere, Even charged for water.. Lost bags, days to collect, Paid for seat upgrade, planes switched, lost seat, no refund."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "On time arrival and departure."
Cons: "Under the Covid circumstances, it was a good experience."

Pros: "Smooth flying!"
Cons: "Better & more snacks.....no ice?"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Clean the cabin more diligently. There was a open unfinished cup of soda and cookie wrappers in my seat back compartment"

Pros: "Lift off and landing was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was 90 minutes late"
Cons: "On time performance"

Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."

Pros: "Was upgraded to Comfort Plus after they had no seat for me on the plane"
Cons: "We booked with Virgin however flew with Delta and we were not alerted to this. We booked with Virgin for a reason. They also did not have seats for me when I went to check in on both flights and I had to negotiate seats before boarding. Very disappointing."

Pros: "This is a super aircraft with many amenities. The flight was smooth for the most part. Loved the movie and the classical music. The crew seemed to work well with each other and was very friendly."
Cons: "It would be nice to have an enforced carry on rule as people bring multiple large bags on and tie up the storage space."

Pros: "On time flight, bag made it, great price, can’t complain."
Cons: "Seat pretty tight for an average size adult man. No inflight phone charger."

Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"

Pros: "We had exit row seat, most uncomfortable ever, video devices both broken. Will never sit in exit row again would have been better off in basic economy"
Cons: "Fix broken seats and tv screens"

Cons: "They did great. The weather was poor, so it felt more like a roller coaster ride home. Made it safe and sound. Would’ve been nice to get an update is speaker about change in weather and the rough ride in store when the whole ride was so turbulent."

Pros: "Great service from boarding to landing"

Pros: "Food was great as was the selection of movies available. The seat was comfortable and had enough leg room."
Cons: "Lines was confusing and the various boarding tiers were not announced properly (Delta One, Sky Priority, and Zone 1 were all together and Zone 2 started boarding way before the priority lane was finished)."

Pros: "The plane was very clean! We loaded in the center which made everything go quicker. I was one of the last on board and there was ample overhead storage. Complimentary snacks were were substantial and service was constant. I hate going to the bathroom on the plane and it was so roomy for airplane bathrooms. The pilot was hilarious!"
Cons: "Only complaint was nothing that can be changes. I had a middle set and it was quite cramped...my computer didn’t fit on the tray or would get smashed when the person in front of me reclined."

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Cons: "No video screens and wi-fi was too slow to use"

Pros: "Crew was amazing! Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Need more than 1 option for breakfast"

Pros: "Friendly"

Pros: "Crew was kind and responsive."
Cons: "Older plane so seats were very crammed. My screen was not calibrated correctly so I couldn’t rewind or pause movies. No charging option for phone. WiFi was spotty."

Pros: "Entertainment, crew, food"
Cons: "The seats were a little tight for an international flight"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."

Pros: "I had never traveled with Delta until my trip to Mexico. I was most impressed with the great service I received on my way to Mexico: from Atlanta to Guadalajara, Guadalajara to CDMX, and, at the end of my stay, from CDMX to Atlanta. I cannot say the same about the experience within Continental USA."
Cons: "I perceived a negative difference in all aspects during my flight going to Mexico, from Philadelphia to Atlanta, and coming back, from Atlanta to Philadelphia."

Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. Friendly, professional"
Cons: "The boarding process was cumbersome. The desk people were unfriendly, unhelpful. Could not give us a seat assignment until the very end of the boarding process. Not a very friendly experience. I felt very ripped off"

Pros: "Thai was the first time in years delta was fast friendly and ONTIME with both departures and arrivals! That’s he most important to me!"
Cons: "No wifi available and The video entertainment service was bad: my video screen didn’t work- I asked for head phones and no one ever came back to me with some- luckily I had already Dwnld my own you tube and videos so I watch’s dmh own. I hope going home to hawaii these won’t be issue again"

Pros: "Our Delta plane was brand spanking new. Everything worked and the inflight entertainment system was fantastic with many movies to choose from, free headphones, games, tv shows, etc. The crew was polite and the seating at least as comfortable as expected for a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "The restrooms in the rear of the plane were remarkably small, even by airline standards. I'm a somewhat larger person and I fit, but I know a lot of people who would literally not be able to fit on the toilet without touching both of the sidewalls or risk getting stuck in there. The boarding process at San Jose Del Cabo was the most ridiculous setup I've ever experienced. There were numerous flights boarding out of the same gates and at least 3 or 4 lines for different destinations forming on a ramp just outside the gates. There were guys with signs trying to herd people into the correct lines and then loading the people onto buses which took you out to the planes. The planes were loading from both the front and rear doors and people were getting tangled up inside because of the haphazard loading process. Very easy for a person to end up on an incorrect plane!!"

Pros: "I got a good seat from LA to GTA on 1st jan. it was in the front and spacious and I was also served food."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."

Pros: "new hi speed wifi, seats"

Pros: "On Tim and friendly"

Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Seats are in humane"

Cons: "I froze on the way to Las Vegas and there weren't enough blankets."

Cons: "Know that if you buy an E ticket they won't assign you seats until you arrive at the departure gate."

Pros: "The flight attendant was pleasant"
Cons: "As usual, Delta regional jets with recurring mechanical problems change of planes, change of gates delay take off etc. This carrier has become a nightmare on this Detroit to Kalamazoo leg."

Pros: "delays for a long time to get to the gate than delays for more than 2 hours for a crew to come in..."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Wide-bodied aircraft; free on-board entertainment with a good selection; complimentary snacks, helpful staff"
Cons: "Waiting 45 mins for baggage to arrive on the carousel at LAX, but probably due to the terminal move currently happening and not the airline's fault."

Pros: "Entertainment was great. Many options"
Cons: "When we arrived for check in we were told we did not have seats assigned, even though I had picked seats previously. At the gate we were told the flight was very full so we would not be able to sit together."

Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."

Pros: "Overall it was good"

Cons: "The handle on my checked bag was broken when I got it at immigration. Not sure why they pulled out the handle since it was retracted when checked in."

Cons: "Delta allowed us to board knowing of possible weather delays at the destination! Once on board the captain announced that we could not take off due to weather at the destination! Why didn't they let us just sit in the airport until Delta knew one way or another? Been sitting, trapped in the plane, no AC, no announcement from the flight crew. Could be waiting in relative comfort inside the airport!!"

Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"

Pros: "Very easy flight & process"

Pros: "Overall flight was nice, but almost miss my flight!"
Cons: "Almost miss my flight due to Delta being short staffed at the ticket counter in the early am. Had a small issue to validate my passport in the automated cheek-in botths and waited over an hour to get them to personally validate. terrible experience. There were several of us with the same problem. I chose Delta given their prestige for great customer service, but they definitely need to do something about some of the folks at Logan's terminal."

Cons: "Same as above."

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: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Super crowded and hot"

Pros: "crew was super friendly."

Pros: "Yes they were amazing and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "The price of the ticket was great."
Cons: "The flight was crowded, no overhead bin space from passengers putting coats and jackets in the bin instead of under their seats. I was in the middle seat between two large men breathing down on me while they slept. It was a nightmare. On a flight that long the seats shouldn’t be that close in proximity nor should larger passengers be allowed to sit in seats too small for their body type. That’s not discrimination that’s logical."

Pros: "The crew was so wonderful!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was pretty smooth, on time, as expected, no problems."
Cons: "The entertainment access from my device was unusable due to unavailability of downloading the proprietary American Airlines APP. I had the GoGo In Flight app installed but that wasn’t enough. A better system should be in place."

Pros: "Mostly pleasant flight crew"
Cons: "Better gate agent and mechanics"

Pros: "Great stewardesses"

Cons: "Both female flight attendants were very rude and pushy, the male was the only pleasant person. Also the in flight entertainment didn’t work half the time."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat comfort and space aboard."

Pros: "Missed our connection flight. Time to close terminal to far away. Ran to gate closed as we got there."
Cons: "Spending night in Chicago O'hare airport where we rerouted."

Pros: "Not much except that it was a smooth ride once we were up in the air."
Cons: "Space is AWFUL, Boarding waa AWFUL. Airlines consider customers cattle and don’t give a damn."

Pros: "Crew was great! Flight was smooth and on time!"
Cons: "Air conditioning!!!"

Pros: "There was a hood vibe from crew. I believe the good nature of the crew had a positive effect on me and follow travelers. A pleasant experience."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that would have improved the experience."

Cons: "Flights could be on time. Every one of the 4 flights were late. Also it would be nice to offer a snack that doesnt contain wheat and sugar."

Pros: "The food and the movies!"
Cons: "The air on the plane was stale and I could barely breathe the entire flight. I feel sick and light headed after that one."

Cons: "The cabin was way too cold."

Pros: "That I arrived on time"
Cons: "Without any kind of entertainment, Some soft music will be better than the aircraft noise.."

Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."

Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "That you have to pay extra for entertainment, that you have to have your own device, and that the food was mediocre"

Pros: "Customers service. The crew was awesome. They're good to me when I was sick."

Pros: "great staff making you feel like home. flight on time,definitely recommend to all."

Pros: "British Airways seats"
Cons: "If we did not arrive at the airport 3hours ahead, and get on an earlier flight we would have missed our connecting flight to England. Do Not book such shoes time between flights because often they are delayed."

Pros: "Flight was delayed 3hrs, no fault of the flight crew or airline but incredibly annoying. amd the person next to me reeked of onions and I couldn’t shake the smell for the entire flight."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Food was so bad The seats were so cramped"

Pros: "Both flights were amazing!"

Cons: "If you get to the airport too early and there aren't any American Airlines flight before yours you have to wait for the crew to get there to open the counter and check you in. Just a couple pounds over the 50lbs and you get screwed with a $100 fee. There is very little AC in the airport and very few outlets so if you have to wait for a flight make sure to charge your devices prior to getting to the airport. WiFi on this an all other American Airlines flights I've recently taken has been useless - almost impossible to use."

Cons: "We taxied on the runway for 45 minutes. Grrr"

Pros: "Drink service was good"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "SFO employee told me wrong gate as gate number changed. Missed flight. Layover in Chicago delayed 3.5 hours."

Cons: "Late, missed connnection. Terrible"

Pros: "i loved everything but there should be more variety of food and snacks"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."

Pros: "Good service and excellent crew"
Cons: "Food choice are few by the time they reach the back of the plane."

Pros: "I loved the extra room in the seating, great seats too. Plus the personal TVs and movie selection was fantastic!!! However, 1/3 of the planes TVs did not work. Luckily, my row of TVs did work and we had an empty seat between my daughter and me , so when my son's TV went out he sat in my row which did work. Great plane, once everything is fixed!"

Cons: "I paid 800.00 and no breakfast order lunch served."

Pros: "I like AA overall, better than United for sure. I've been flying with AA since forever."
Cons: "Flight attendants arrived late, delayed the passengers. No blanket for main cabin when asked, my parents are old and they were really cold. Harsh landing but that's a give for DCA anyway."

Cons: "It was ONLY this leg that was messed up. The AA staff in PHI had no idea where the incoming plane was. Got snippy with other customers asking about it. First said it was delayed 50 minutes and then they were surprised when passengers were disembarking from them. Then the plan couldn't leave the jetway because it was stuck -- which was blamed on the City of Philadelphia and we ended up being nearly 4 hours late."

Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"

Cons: "Cramped seating. As per usual."

Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."

Pros: "The ticketing staff in Lihue was excellent!"

Pros: "The new airplane was nice. The plane that we took to Hawaii was so old that it still had ashtrays and was super dirty."
Cons: "For some reason American has not given us any seat assignments in our trip home and all the gate agents are very unfriendly and not in HR least bit helpful."

Pros: "Ther"
Cons: "Carry On : crew did not help me find a spot for my carrying on. An older man actually found me a spot It was on this leg ( not the La Guardia to Chatlotte ) that the food tray kept opening after trying to close them ( old latches ) US airlines flight attendants don't understand how to talk to travellers . Asian airlines have excellent flight attendants"

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Seats are too close together, not wide enough, to short, no knee room."

Pros: "By the time I boarded the plane three hours late nothing short of a flux capacitor to make the plane fly back in time would have made this trip even decent."
Cons: "It was just so late."

Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No phone charging at seats, no personal video in setback..."

Pros: "The flights weren't delayed and were right on time."
Cons: "Both flights were on time."

Pros: "The lady with one hand was very nice."
Cons: "waiting for 2 1/2 hours totally sucks. waiting an extra 2 1/2 hours, there was a hour and a half layover already so that just going to add it to it. Overall it was a 12 hour travel day and that was a bit long"

Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived on time even though there was a mechanical delay."

Pros: "Excellent crew, really liked large overhead bin capacity on this 737-800, and excellent boarding."
Cons: "United apparently insists on making entertainment available only through its United app and personal devices. That may be OK for lots of passengers, but we prefer the entertainment options available on almost every other airline that flies internationally and long distance domestic flights."

Cons: "Didn't realize when we booked our seats that they were basic economy and we couldn't upgrade or change them. I was seated away from my husband, beside a very large man who hugged the armrest and munched loudly on corn chips. For 5 hours. Movie headphones were poor. No leg room and I'm 5'4", 125 lbs."

Pros: "Good crew, good and safe flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The cabin crew was horrible. When serving refreshments during the flight, I was ignored repeatedly when I asked for a soda. My wife sitting next to me, and the other passenger on our row were served. I asked the flight attendant 5 times for a drink and never received it."
Cons: "fire the flight attendant, and find somebody who cares for their customers."

Cons: "The basic economy fare is not explained well when purchasing ticket. Insane that you can buy a ticket for your toddler child who is flying with you but can not request to sit next to them. And no overhead carry on is ridiculous. Have had so many problems with United this may be the final straw."

Pros: "With the amount of bad press that United has, I did not expect much. However, flight was on time, everybody was polite, movie selection was excellent (several classics, box office hits, comedies etc, they even appropriately put "Die hard" under Winter Wonderland), food was good and salted caramel ice cream for dessert was a very nice touch."
Cons: "Tiny seats. My God, would it hurt to have TWO arm rests? I ended up sitting for 8h crooked to the right, just to avoid touching the guy beside me."

Cons: "First class seat and it barely reclined at all"

Pros: "The variety of movies"
Cons: "No daily wifi"

Pros: "quick fast and no nonsense, nothing to worry about on a 30 minutes. Hawaiian gets you there fast and mostly on time."

Pros: "Japanese always do it right"

Pros: "The plane took of and arrived safely and on time. The entertainment was decent."
Cons: "1/2 bag of pretzels for a ~6 hour flight? Are you kidding me! The whole ride was sweltering hot. United flight attendants almost universally hate their jobs and they let it show. The entertainment system takes up half of the room under the seat, as if things weren’t cramped enough already."

Cons: "In flight entertainment system not working."

Pros: "We had no difficulties and the crew was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "We had to wait for a crew member but we weren’t too late."

Pros: "The crew was excellent. They behaved with humor, grace, kindness and professionalism."
Cons: "The seats are sooooo cramped and uncomfortable."

Cons: "We boarded the plane and due to "mechanical problem", we sat on the tarmac for ~3 hours before departing. This led to missing our connection at LAX and then missing our connection in ORD to State College tacking 6 extra hours to the trip. The late arrival and full work schedule the next day left me exhausted and got a nasty cold as a consequence. I find the frequency of mechanical problem delays to be high and increasing."

Pros: "Smooth easy flight."
Cons: "The only real downside was seat 22D headphone jack was broken so it made for a long flight but I played some games."

Cons: "Seat was really hard and hurt to sit on after the first hour. Even had trouble sleeping it was so bad."

Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."

Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "Hot cabin"

Cons: "Same comment as above! The crew were not as friendly and welcoming, especially to coach passenger like me. There were too many announcements and interruptions. Not sure why but it was unnecessary to have too many, can't rest or sleep nor continue with viewing the entertainment provided. It seemed like a tired crew this time. The food was not good."

Pros: "That I FINALLY got home."
Cons: "Total snafu from start to finish."

Pros: "On time flight, food was good, entertainment system worked well. Leg room adequate for a tall person."
Cons: "Nothing really to complain about"

Pros: "Generally, a good flight experience. The crew were polite and professional."

Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED OVER 2 HRS. FINALLY, WHEN WE CAN BOARD, WE WAITED AT LEAST 1 HOUR MORE. VERY DISAPPOINTING."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "Everything was ok."

Cons: "I didn't like that they cancelled my flight and I had to go through another airline"

Cons: "It was freezing on the flight no blankets. A lot of turbulence and a very hard landing. Not pleasant at all."

Pros: "I went a different route back to Denver I drove in a vehicle do the circumstances of a friend moving back to Colorado from Michigan. So I called ahead of time and let United Airlines know to go ahead and give my seat to anybody"

Pros: "Flights were on time , thank you!"
Cons: "I did not like that i had to pay for my two suit cases ,,, on American Airlines you only pay for the second bag. The first bag always free."

Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."

Pros: "Boarding was as it should be. The flight crew were friendly and did their jobs well."
Cons: "Two of the movie screens in our row were broken. The seats are rediculously tight. Leg room is terrible."

Pros: "What did I like? NOTHING"
Cons: "They changed the flight time 100 times and in the end I ended up with one more stop than originally scheduled, was supposed to be CLE-HOU-CCS and ended up being CLE-IAD-HOU-CCS ... with a loooooong layover in IAD, shame on you, I bought the ticket because it was supposed to be convenient"

Cons: "Flight got cancelled cause of issues with plane. Took over 5 hours in line to get to the counter to talk to someone. There were only 2 counter people for first 3 hours. Once at counter ther had to put us on flight for next day. (Just informed 5 min ago that flight has been delayed another day cause of plane issues.) they couldn't get us to sit together which I understand but also put me in a middle seat which I'm clostraphobic so that sucks. Told me that I can book a hotel to stay at and they would reimburse me.... eventually. Fought over that for an hour and they finally agreed to pay for Hotel. Overall the trip was great but the departure from Kauai has been real bad. Still waiting to leave the island."

Pros: "Horrible Nightmare"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Plane change from lie down seats to regular. Intermittent sound on TV. Only movies & not very good. Attendant spilled water on me & iPad filling glass for window passenger. Seat reclinred but needed to be manually pulled upright. Not very good value for 1st class ticket price."

Cons: "My scooter should have been gate checked to BWI. instead it was only checked to LAX due to a error at the gate. It arrived 14choirs later."

Cons: "Good flight"

Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "No food. Just some peanuts"

Pros: "I like how courteous the attendants were."
Cons: "We had many delays with the system down. We ended up in lines at the airport for nearly 3 hours. Also, it would have been nice to be given food for that long of a flight."

Pros: "I really appreciate them getting us there safely the crew was fine and it was nice to have tvs on each seat complimentary it really helps having something else to take you away mentally when physically your crammed together and it's really not comfortable or pleasant. I think the staff and crew were just fine though it's just flying has gotten to be something I don't enjoy and want to avoid as much as possible it's that way with most airlines though I think her blue is a little better on seat space and usually always has the tvs but yeah they are limited where they fly and it I is just expensive and uncomfortable to fly I think."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and expensive."

Cons: "United canceled my reservation without any explanation. The Worst customer service ever!!!!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Departure time changed at least six times. Gate and plane were both unbearably cold - passengers were all complaining. Departure gate at EWR was gross, run-down, and did not have working outlets."

Pros: "I was in a wheel chair and the crew in the airport made my transitiins within the airport very easy"
Cons: "."

Cons: "They delayed the flight because they had no flight attendant. They delayed it every 15 minutes from 450 to 715 and then just stopped updating us at all. We all waited with no food or drink or any news. At 815 they cancelled it and sent the whole plane to customer service to wait in line. Most of us had to stay in Wash and leave the next day. They offered us nothing except to rebook the flight. The boarding crew was laughing and joking the whole time with zero regard for our discomfort or ruining connecting flights! Never again."

Pros: "Comfort horrible in 2nd plane"

Pros: "Chairs were comfortable on this plane"
