Maybe not treat the passengers like cattle.

Very good service, on time, excelent. Equipment

El servicio a bordo excelente, Pablo una gran persona, pero el atraso en la salida fue demasiado

Flight left over two and half late was suppose to leave at 6AM. The flight left at 8:23AM, had to wait for the first officer to show up for the flight.

Love the flight to NY. It was amazing. Just did not like the boarding. It was more than a hassle

Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"

Cons: "Delayed, delayed, delayed and no entertainment on the plane"

Pros: "Nice pilot -Jim."
Cons: "Multiple delays & gate changes"

Cons: "Plane to JFK cancelled. Jet Blue blocked ticket next day at 6am for China Southern. Spent additional $120 in transportation so I could leave home at 2am. Then when at JFK had to get a ticket at desk after an hour walking and being in line and after strong protest for they were not going to give me a"
Pros: "Simple and easy flight, boarding on and off no big deal. Using your phone as a boarding pass is a great plus. Skipped the check-in process and breezed through security."
Cons: "Person I was seated next to, older women was really fidgeting and bumping me through the flight."
Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "Late late late. About 5 hours late for no real reason"
Pros: "Everything was good, no problems at all"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival , best leg room ever"
Pros: "How calm the staff remained in the face of many very tired and disappointed people"
Cons: "The flight had a mechanical issue but no mechanic was duty. the flight was supposed to leave at 5, we left at midnight on a plane flown up from Boston. We arrived at 3 in the morning which left me at 61 driving an hour home at a terrible time of night. I was afraid for my safety driving at that hour but they strung us along for so long there were no real opportunities to choose another option. Besides which my bag was stuck in the broken compartment and could not be retrieved. The flight, when it finally left was so cold that everyone was huddled down in their seats, the very senior lade next to me was pitiful. All in all a horrible experience."
Pros: "The TV options"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I love it"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "I paid for extra space and there was none available on my flight."
Pros: "The best"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful with updates."

Pros: "Made up time"
Cons: "I think they should give the headphones and not charge."
Pros: "The entertament options from new releases to tv shows was good .."
Cons: "The staff was disorganized and seemed a bit frantic at one point they announce a need for a doctor on board .. we where never told that the passanger was allright .. There was a chilld who sat behind me that kick my chair the entire time and stuck his hands in between which where sticky in between the seat over and over again grabbing me he was loud and sick with what seem to be a cold and kept touching me though the seat would not listen to the adult that was with him i understand that he is a child but this went on the entire flight which was over five hours my back is still not ok .. snacks where serve late into the filght once.. staff was not friendly..."
Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"
Pros: "Weather and atmosphere in Orlando!"
Pros: "I didn’t die."
Cons: "The 6 hour delay. The over tired, but outright rude crew in both the airport and plane."
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Delaying the departure time"
Cons: "A woman was boarding the plane with two babies and clearly struggling to get to the back of the plane. When she could not handle it anymore she asked one of the flight attendants to help her. She was refused assistance by her. Then the flight attendant came to the front of the plane laughing uncontrollably say, "OMG, did you see her having a meltdown...she was asking me to help." She proceeded to laugh for the next 20 minutes repeating that the woman was helpless. I was disgusted by the flight attendant's behavior and attitude."
Pros: "I didn't like much of anything EXCEPT THE FREE WIFI. While it's nice to have all the bells and whistles (free in flight TV/movies, snacks/beverages, etc.), the basics need to be met too - which they weren't."
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane was delayed 1.5 hours for no good reason. Why have us sit on the plane in a cramped atmosphere instead of delaying it at the gate first until your ducks are in a row? Then the in-flight entertainment audio periodically cuts out, and they were resetting the TV system over 3 times. In addition, I had requested a price reduction when I booked the flight since JetBlue's website is buggy and the price went up $80 in front of my eyes while other people booked the seat I wanted, and they weren't willing to give me anything."
Pros: "No nonsense flight and funny crew too."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Best crew and flight experiance I have had flying in the CONUS in years!"
Cons: "Itwas too short and I could not enjoy it longer!"
Pros: "Overall this is an excellent flight. JetBlue has more leg room than all the other airlines I've flown. Free snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. A lot of entertainment options and Wi-Fi. Bring your own headphones if you want to save a few bucks. We boarded on time."
Cons: "Even though everyone was on board and ready to go they did not close the door and depart. I have no idea what they were waiting for because no one else boarded the plane. No announcements from pilot."
Cons: "TVs are a bit outdated. Not wide. Otherwise for fine"
Pros: "Early morning departure from Logan creates a lot of traffic at terminal C. Boston hasn’t quite worked out the best way to handle the popularity of JetBlue. New checkin procedures just built att term C are a bit confusing, passengers self tag their bags and drop off. Overall, be generous with the time you give yourself at Logan. JetBlue embrar 190 to Austin is a nice plane. Clean, pretty quiet. Extra space is a good upgrade. Overall no big negatives, great carrier, with good people running the flight, with great equipment. Passenger space is great in more space seats, and among the best in std seats. Arrival in Austin is simple, great little airport."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 80 minutes - warning of delay occured after I was already at airport, through security."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled had to sleep at jfk for over 10 hours until new flight"
Pros: "Clean restroom"
Cons: "Polite flight attendant"
Cons: "Too cold and noxious fumes prior to take-off which was delayed nearly 2 hours."

Great flight. Easy peasy. Safe. And nice crew. Thank you!

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding"
Pros: "Seating is better than most other airlines. In seat entertainment option, bring headphones. Accommodating crew. Beverage and snacks provided at no cost."
Pros: "The crew did a good job in announcing the arrival of the flight and where we are at and how far we are flying overall did an excellent job"
Cons: "If they had orange juice lol"
Pros: "I liked the fact I was put into a quality seat after I had booked a normal economy seat. Nice upgrade. I got lots of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a maintenance issue. We made up some of the time, but it was an issue."
Pros: "Delta is doing a great job keeping everything calm and clean during this pandemic!"
Pros: "Empty middle seat; disinfectant wipes. I know these measures were implemented because of COVID but I wouldn’t mind having these last past the pandemic!"
Pros: "The seats in Premium Economy are terribly uncomfortable and not worth the extra cost."
Cons: "The seats in Premium Economy are terribly uncomfortable and not worth the extra cost."
Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Quicker way to get off plane"
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Horrible boarding experience. We were not offered a choice of seats when we checked in and had to wait at the gat"
Cons: "Plane left 4 mins early knowing that passengers were on a delayed flight."
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."
Cons: "All of the plane extras (e.g. WiFi, food service, etc.) were out of commission for some reason. Without WiFi, I couldn’t watch anything on my own device, and I would’ve had to pay for a headset that is compatible with your screens."
Cons: "KLM staff at Schipol Airport in Amsterdam was rude and unprofessional. I will not fly with KLM again."
Pros: "Good flight in air"
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."
Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "Super nice gate agent, doing her best to get us out on time but very clear spoken and nice about it!"
Cons: "No monitors for entertainment!? FA was just ok, nothing bad but sure not a standout."
Pros: "Not comfortable a little but scary on the flight to Detroit. Way better coming back to Denver"
Pros: "We were offered food and drinks (including basic cocktails) continuously throughout the flight. Hot hand towels, comfortable seats, dozens of movies and TV series, all included with basic fare. The flight attendants were kind and helpful. Excellent service and organization!"
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Cons: "Hassel about getting a visa to Cambodia. Refused to give me a boarding pass for 2nd and 3 rf leg of trip. Korean Air had no problems giving me yhe passes. Otter people had Delta boarding passes shivh they traded for Korran Aiir passes but the got better seats. Food was very good"
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality. I also am surprised that airlines (not just Delta) continue to provide such low quality food options on flights. I think consumers would pay more for better options."
Pros: "On time. Quick and easy flight!"
Pros: "that we got to our destination"
Cons: "the bathrooms were gross"
Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."
Pros: "The staff was polite and snacks were good (healthy options)."
Cons: "Nothing was terrible, but due to the short flights I assume they don’t worry about having planes with entertainment available."
Pros: "Everything was very standard, good crew, good gate agents, smooth flight."
Cons: "I purchase tickets using credit card points and was not allowed to have seat assignments until 24 hours before the flight. This is NOT going to work for me in the future"
Cons: "No wifi, no leg room"
Pros: "Everyone was really nice and responsive."
Cons: "Seats are a little older. Not as comfortable as other flights. But not bad."
Pros: "Hartsfield rental car train broke so it made me miss my original flight to DCA. Delta ticket agents rebooked me w/no problem and could not have been nicer or more professional. Thank you Delta, you are my hero! Hartsfield Airport, not so much."
Pros: "Crew fantastic"
Cons: "Staff not attentive to customer needs. I asked for a blanket and the stewardess never came back to me."
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"

Pros: "Better entertaining sistem"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t very serviceful"
Pros: "On time and good flight"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I was surprised that they served two very nice meals on our flights."
Cons: "The entertainment system had some issues. The headphone that were distributed have a double and single plug to attach to the armrest. Since the armrest had two femal plugs in it then I assumed that the headphone required the two male plugs. That didn’t work. It wasn’t until much later that I tried the single plug from the headphone but that only worked when jiggling it around to make it connect properly. Would have preferred one of the new systems that allow you to stream a movie of your own choice to your own device."
Cons: "Maybe less cold the temperature."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The entertainment was quite good, but then it started repeating the same episodes that had already been played. The shows played were very good, but it would have been nice if there were more new episodes."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process. Hassle free flight."
Cons: "The chicken wrap was terrible!"
Cons: "No communication whatsoever, flight was canceled and had to wait 14 hours for the next flight p"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"
Pros: "The crew was amazing! Excellent attention. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "Bagage claim sucks"
Pros: "Que el avion era de 2 filas conn2 lugares"
Cons: "La comodidad.. Son muy estrechos..."
Cons: "There was a prolonged delay on arrival in Panama, as the gate was apparently in use. They set up stairs (on the runway?) and they transported us by bus to the airport. On the connecting flight to Guatemala, they began boarding an hour before departure, only to wait on a bus to be taken to the aircraft. Apparently the airline doesn't only double book seats on flights, but on Gates on arrival and departure as well? Aside from this particular gripe, the crews were pleasant and the airfare was a relative bargain, so all in all not a bad option IMO."
Pros: "Boarding process and crew service were ok"
Cons: "Comfort and entertainment could be better"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Boarding process in Panama is very disorganized"
Pros: "Comfortable and puntual"
Pros: "Puntual, comfort"
Cons: "A Lot of people drinking alcohol in rear cabin, the crew was giving alcohol and a lot of kids were present in the aircraft"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Courtesy, timing, comfort."
Cons: "The food. It was a bit heavy."
Cons: "This is not a negative more just informative. There is no entertainment."
Pros: "Free meal on a one hour flight!"
Pros: "technology and movie/entertainment selection. plus drinks were included"
Pros: "Crew and newer aircraft"
Cons: "Food could have been better in business."
Pros: "The flight was cool, i loved not having to get down the airplane in Costa Rica to conitnue to Guatemala."
Cons: "It was freezing, and they didn't offer blankets just while we were on the plane."
Cons: "Food was really awful"
Pros: "Connecting flight with a meal!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "They were overselled and b9oked me in a flight next day! even thou there was a flight later the same day"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Pros: "Non stop flight from Boston to Panama City. Baggage claim was quick, huge improvement from past experiences at this airport. Meal was included as well as drinks, and no carry or checked bag fees. Boarding was done quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "Will do web check in next time to avoid wait for check-in and bag drop. Bathroom condition got pretty bad mid-flight but that's not really the airlines fault as it was initially clean."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"
Pros: "Great flight and crew; great value."
Cons: "For a 5 hour international flight, it would be great to get a second movie or slightly longer entertainment. There is a captive audience and nothing to do, and it doesn't really cost you guys much! Thanks."
Pros: "Everything went well, very nice and good."
Cons: "The seats could be a little uncomfortable when sleeping, and I'm vegan so eating anything was difficult."
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
Pros: "2 free checked bags, and hot sandwich and drink in coach"
Cons: "Can't think on anything"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Poor customer service for our friend who had a problem with her ticket."
Pros: "Enough space to stretch my legs. Crew was respectful"
Cons: "Never answered the numbers I called when I got to the airport ended up having to rent with another company"
Cons: "I already wrote this in their customer feedback, and I haven't gotten a response."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"
Cons: "---"
Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"
Pros: "I didn't expect to be fed on the flight so that was a nice surprise."
Pros: "Inspite of being a very short flight, they offered food and beverages and for free :)"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No series or tv shows"
Cons: "Small plane for a long distance flight. The food was horrible and there is no entertainment on board, so if you run out from battery, you will think about jumping off the plane. Worst airline for long flights."

American unexpectedly and without any reason moved my and my wife’s seat so that we were 11 rows from our 7 and 9 year old. I tried to get moved back to our original seats and while they were trying to figure out how to do that, someone bought the exit row and we were stuck. It just seems like being a million miler and and a gold elite don’t mean anything anymore.

Cons: "No pre flight service in first class even though we sat at the gate for an extra 30 minutes."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"
Pros: "Crew was OK"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was no power outlet."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight attendant worked really hard to keep people moving and comfortable and safe. Pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The plane is a bit older and they need to update their fleet. Boarding process needs to start sooner. Not sure what is ... Took forever for them to board."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything at all"
Cons: "They have to add electronic devices or charge plug on it"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."
Cons: "Baggage claim number was wrong. They almost took my bag away"
Cons: "Overall good business class trip."
Cons: "The crew seemed annoyed and not into it."
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable"
Cons: "Need more room"
Cons: "PHX airport baggage claim was a mess. I had to wait 40 min to pick up the luggages."
Cons: "The gate attendant was very hard to understand and so I couldn’t hear what she was saying."
Pros: "The crew was great, efficient and professional."
Cons: "My tv was broken and only played maximum volume."
Pros: "Never even made it on this flight because the first flight was ruined and delayed severely"
Cons: "The fact that my travel plans were entirely derailed and I had to book with another airline"
Cons: "We were told to board quickly so we could leave on time, boarded and sat for more than a half hour. The landing at Monterey was dreadful, hit hard first touchdown and then two more bounces."
Pros: "Coffee"
Cons: "Only snacks available at 5am"
Pros: "Bos to Rome via jfk. Both flights easy in all ways. Grrat first class seat one first flight and quite good bus class on second. New Flagship Lounge a real plus."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Very cold."
Pros: "Flight crew were very apologetic"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Miami. Only one flight per day. Had to take a flight to an alternative location, drive for an hour down the coast and take a ferry to my final destination."
Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"
Cons: "No message to call with passengers with kids to board first or any military personnel boarding first."
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
Pros: "Nice flight, great leg room, staff was friendly and flight was on time."
Cons: "Not having boarding passes for the entire trip and not checking luggage thru to Charlotte was a hassle."
Pros: "Friendly attendants, plenty of coffee. Great service."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "The flight to Washington was fine. It was the flight back that I have issues with."
Cons: "My issue with flying back American is that...I didn't. They boarded us on the plane, moved down the tarmac, and then checked to see that we had a brake problem. They took our plane out of service (which I get, I would want brakes before takeoff), but then they never updated us on our status, until I physically went to the counter to ask an hour later. This is when they informed me that the flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 9pm flight (Mind you, this is 12:30p and I have a 2 year old with me). Luckily, I was able to book JetBlue and get home earlier (8:00pm)"
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, the window had a leak, the TV was too far away and the sound system to watch the movie was broken. When the plane is in that poor of a condition, it's time to replace it. F."
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Cons: "Almost did not make it on the dieses flight because totally crowded at security check point."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "We arrived safe."
Cons: "The plane had been on the ground for 6 hours prior boarding time, yet we leave until 1 hour late. Waited for the food to be loaded and then waited for paperwork to be signed. Really?"
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew are nice with the people"
Cons: "Too crowded not able to take my other luggage on board."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment interface was well-designed. The aircraft tracker is the best, the media selections were plentiful. Having the usb and headphone plugs next to the monitor is the best. Better than Virgin for sure. But strangely, you couldn't order from the food and drinks menu like you can from Virgin so it was just a video version of the menu card. Food was good."
Cons: "Someone destroyed a lavatory so we were short one for the flight and caused a 30 minute delay before take-off. The usual spiral happened: pilot flew into bad turbulence to make up time. No biggie."
Cons: "Jetway should not be backed up all the way to the counter. Stop calling so many groups for boarding without knowing that no one is actually getting onboard. Force subsequent groups to step aside until called."
Pros: "Good experience all around."
Cons: "15 minutes late. No big deal though"
Pros: "the flight was on time coming and going"
Cons: "Being stuck in a high dollar city for an additional night when i should have made it to the lower intermediary city and flown standby the next day."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Great entertainment system."
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Pros: "The cookies were good"
Cons: "The gangplank was broken. It took so long for them to ascertain the situation, move the broken gangplank away, move the plane from gate B15 to B16, load passengers & luggage and take off, that I missed my connection in LaGuardia. I had to get a standby flight & thankfully got on. Why wasn't that equipment checked out long before it was used?"
Pros: "Plane wasn't full"
Cons: "We booked on British Air, but got American Airlines. Something I didn't realize. I don't like Amercan Airlines! No internet, no tv. Only overhead tv too far away to see from my seat and no choices Old plane"
Pros: "I made it to NY somehow"
Cons: "Everything. I have 2 roller bags I carry on to every flight I have ever taken and they charged me $25 per bag to check because it was a "snug" fit into their dimension box. Also gave no snacks and only half can refreshments, no entertainment."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The extra legroom for economy plus seats"
Cons: "The food was tiny and not good"
Cons: "Free high speed Wifi. More room / comfort"
Pros: "Most uncomfortable plane that I've ever been on"
Cons: "Seat space"
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: "Not being delayed for 2 hours"
Cons: "Reliability"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "Salmon and rice."
Cons: "Tvs not working and staff pretending as if they would fix it but actually the problem been going for a while with that airplane. The pizza should not only be a vegetarian one ."
Pros: "Not much although the small meal/snack was solid. Also they didn’t lose or kill any animals as far as know."
Cons: "WiFi did not work. Flight attendants didn’t really care. No way to watch TV unless you pay."
Pros: "Good. Seating. Not too crowded"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "United personnel were very helpful under really miserable circumstances. They did everything in their power to rush me to flights that were seriously delayed due to severe weather on January 4th."
Cons: "The long delays! The kicker was when we waited 2.5 hours for technicians to repair broken in-flight restrooms. Flights that were supposed to be completed in five hours were finished in 10. Noone's fault, but I did not enjoy that part."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice, and although our flight was delayed and hour and fifteen minutes and our layover was an hour and fifteen minutes, we were able to make our connection! Since our connection to Portland in Denver was the last flight of the night, they were able to hold it for us. This was wonderful because there weren’t many flights out that weren’t booked solid for the next day. The attendants on this flight were great about updating us with information for the connections and telling us when we would land in Denver."
Cons: "The plane was delayed over an hour for cleaning. It was frustrating to say the least."
Pros: "Refund was prompt"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew from the ticket agents all the way up were great. The app for iPhone is great."
Cons: "I paid for 30 minutes of WiFi to download the United app on my iPad. I wanted to watch the movies/tv shows that were available to passengers. The WiFi was spotty and slow so I wasn’t able to load the app. Needless to say I was disappointed. I also was disappointed with the seating. I am an average size person and I felt very cramped in my seat. My shoulders and neck are killing me after a 2 hour flight. I know that I chose the economy seating but I don’t remember the seats being quite so narrow or the leg room being non existent."
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "A very tall, male, flight attendant very wonderfully took me almost all the way from one end of the horseshoe to the other. I didn't catch his name but he was SO helpful."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by a few minutes and by the time we got to San Francisco, boarding was almost done for my connecting flight. I had to literally run from one end of the United terminals to the other... the entire horse shoe."
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."
Cons: "How can you fly hundreds people across the nation in a 100 million dollar aircraft but not know who to reset the router on the wifi? Bait and switches. They should never advertise it if they can't get it to work."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Competent, organized, pleasant and efficient staff, on time"
Cons: "Got re-seated into a non-recline, bulkhead exit row. For a tall guy like me that's a death sentence on a 6h flight that's delayed extra at the end of a day"
Cons: "Took 3 days to get home got stuck in a hotel pregant stuck between airport and planes for 2 days makes me never want to fly again horrible experience"
Pros: "I liked the comfort that the plane gave. I also enjoyed the fact that the crew was all very friendly and kind."
Cons: "There was no music or free tv to watch on flight. There were delays due to high traffic."
Cons: "They had flight delay issues and WE got pushed onto a next day flight but WE had to pay for our hotel when it was their planes delayed!"
Cons: "Honestly, I am not a big fan of United right now and their airline policies. The flight was delayed for a hour. But at least I wasn't dragged off the plane or stuck in 95 degree weather for 5 hours."
Pros: "Flash for mac did not install"
Cons: "I felt like I was on my way to my death"
Cons: "was supposed to originally leave on Friday April 21st at 7:00 pm, was delayed until 10:45 pm, so I decided to take Saturday April 22nd at 10 AM, and even that was delayed until 11 AM. very crappy"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight but overall it was a really good flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "they switched our flight in boston to another flight which was totally inconvenient. then the connecting flight was delayed so we had a three hour layover. then they switched the terminal and flight time to an hour earlier than posted w/o our knowledge. that flight left and we were stranded in new jersey airport until 6 am the next day and had to rebook. now we will have to make another stop in san Francisco's before getting to portland oregon a day late. total joke."
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: "Rebooking me on another flight was uncomplicated."
Cons: "We had a long delay in Boston that resulted in missing my connection. I only had 10 minutes from gate to gate to make my connection. I understand that the FAA levies heavy fines on planes every minute that they are late. If so, how does it explain the delay in Boston of almost an hour? Needless to say, I was NOT happy."
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: "Good crews."
Cons: "The UA439 flight from Boston to Chicago was delayed for almost 4-hours."
Pros: "Flight was stuck on the ground for 2 hrs because of a generator issue, so I missed my connection. The United app nicely pre-booked me on the next flight to my destination without my having to do anything, which was cool. Internet didn't work but they refunded my purchase."
Cons: "The legroom is so much worse than jetBlue (which I usually fly) I almost couldn't believe it. Because of the generator issue the flight ended up being almost 9 hours. They ran out of ALL FOOD for purchase except chips (which they didn't even offer for free despite everything), so those of us in the back of the aircraft had our choice of a bag of chips for $4, or no food for 9 hours. Also, I paid $20 for the internet for the entire flight but it only worked for the first hour so I couldn't do any work."
Pros: "I was so impressed with the captain and flight attendants handling the engine problems we had that sent us back to the gate for maintenance at Boston. They were calm and professional and (as a fearful flyer) I felt confident the captain was absolutely making sure we were safe to progress."
Cons: "It was so hot on the plane!!! It would have been awesome if they would have passed out water."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "I wished there was a snack."
Cons: "Our flight home we couldn't land in Chicago due to storms and diverted to Madison. Sat on Tarmac 2 hours and some passengers from Madison allowed to end journey there. We had to wait for that approval and again had to wait for their luggage to be removed from the plane. My opinion is let them disembark but not the luggage. It was too long to be in that plane"
Cons: "They mis-tagged my bag and still haven't found it and have not been helpful or informative when I call to check the status"
Pros: "It was a comfy plane ride."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4.5 HOURS due to lazy attempts at calculating how much fuel was required with weather systems. We stopped to refuel in Minneapolis for a very long time, despite assurances it would only take ~20 minutes."
Pros: "One crew member for the baggage crew was helpful."
Cons: "They lost my luggage which I had to put my medication on. I ended up needing to go to the emergency room to get the medication."
Pros: "the gate was across from the lounge entrance, after the delay got a seat row to myself"
Cons: "delayed multiple times due to maintenance issue (their fault), no compensation for lost time"
Cons: "Our flight was 2 hours late, the customer service was horrid and didn't even acknowledge people who needed help at the front desk. They we're too busy talking to their coworkers. We then get on the plane and it's old, run down, and the take off and landing were the roughest I've ever encountered. Nobody was remotely professional and we landed after our rental car company closed so we had to go back to the airport the next day. NEVER FLYING UNITED AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "Broading was seamless"
