Cons: Amazing flight
Pros: Courteous and service oriented.
Cons: There was only 1.25 hours to connect in Mexico City and the originatng flight left 25 minutes late. Wouldn't have been an issue but baggage delivery in Mex. D. F. was quite slow. First bag arrived quickly enough but second bag was delayed almost 15 minute more before appearing on the caroussel. Going back through securuitY was slow despite a special line for connectin passengers. Result-- missed flight by about 10 minutes and reschedule was for a flight 3 hours later. Luckily, bags never made it onto original flight so arrived with me on later flight. Inconvenient but understandable. Mexico City requires more than an hour (at least 1hr and about 40 minutes more) to make connections.
Pros: Please see the above note
Cons: Please see the above note
Cons: it was a bad customer service. They never mentioned I had to be 2 hours earlier to be on board, I didn't got heads up, i came like an hour and 15 minutes, and they told me I was not able to go in, because the gates were closed. I told them about my situation that I was late because I was in a funeral, and they didn't really care about it. Customer service was not really nice to me even though when I got there not to late. They didn't really care. Sad about it. I though they were going to considered my case. The attitude of some employees were unacceptable.
Cons: My nephews got to the airport 1 1/2 early to check in. They were Not promitted to board the plane. I had to buy new tickets or fly out Monday. I have insurance and was not reimbursed.
Cons: No vegetarian food even though I requested it! They switched my seat from an aisle to a middle. Not ok! Rude agent at the gate who told me she couldn't help me get a vegetarian dish.
Cons: Lost my luggage, didn't get it until the next night, when I had a very important wedding in Mexico.
Cons: No me gusto que no hubo orden al momento de abordar en la sala A. y salir acminando como otras aerolineas baratas y mediocres de Mexico. Una de las crew fue muy ruda y de mal humor todo el tiempo.
Cons: Food, entertainment and space
Cons: they were terrible...our flight was delayed - for 7 hours at Mexico City airport! They lied to us constantly and were rude and unreliable...
Pros: The Dreamlines is terrific. Great service, attentive staff & clean airplanes & food.
Pros: Is on time
Cons: The food is terrible
Pros: La amabilidad y la atencion.
Cons: La música muy aburrida.
Pros: The flight departed more than 90 minutes late. Not impressive. No one ever explained the delay, so poor communication. The food was considerably better than the previous flight. Older plane so no movie selection. We appreciated the fact they did not lose our luggage on this journey.
Cons: Overall, based on our experience to and from our destination, we will avoid Aeromexico in the future. The people are nice but it is a poorly managed airline. Too many headaches and surprises to justify any discount. We have flown many times internationally and therefore understand things are not always smooth. But there are too many problems with Aeromexico.
Pros: Love this Airline everything about it
Cons: Flight has been pushed back on multiple occasions and we're still waiting to hear if it will ever leave or be canceled due to an ill flight attendant . Staff also says if canceled no accommodations will be provided because of a convention in GDL. Maybe we'll make it home eventually.
Pros: flight on time, service onboard, flight price
Cons: Our flight was cancelled til 24 hours later. And then delayed two more times before we were able to fly out. Very frustrating experience
Cons: The customer service desk!
Pros: empty plane
Cons: They didn’t even offer water to drink and came up and down at least 8 times to collect garbage. What garbage you haven’t offered us anything to throw out. They announced for their crew protection service may be slightly different if there is turbulence whatever
Pros: Crew was great.
Cons: Need better snacks on American.
Pros: The seats were comfortable
Cons: Everything was fine
Pros: The crew was very friendly as well as the pilot after we had landed. Also was nice they gave us each a little water in a plastic bag as well as a snack
Cons: Not much anything can be done to make a flight better with Covid. Masks have to be on, no drink options available anymore.
Pros: Everything was great. But the American Airlines can improve on not letting non-first class passengers use the restroom up front.
Cons: The food! Bring back real food please
Cons: My screen didn't work the whole flight. Cabin staff had to be asked 3 times for help and didn't respond at all to first call of bell. No check back to see if problem resolved. They allowed a man with 2 mask vents on the plane despite having said there not allowed.
Pros: Quick flight time even though we left late.
Cons: Needed larger plane. The passengers were smashed together in small seats.
Pros: Bags are no where to be found after landing 25 minutes ago
Pros: That the flight was a very reasonable price
Cons: The flight was packed there was no separation of people for the convir 19 the seats were very close together my knees were touching the seat in front of me
Pros: Great customer service
Cons: Nothing that I can address everything was good
Cons: No social distancing due to all of the seats being booked. My significant other was moved from her seat to another one across from me which was unfortunate.
Pros: Yes they were amazing and the seats were comfortable.
Pros: Everyone was well behaved.
Pros: Crew was great
Cons: Not operating in any way like there is a pandemic going on. Both overbooked flights. Put everybody too close together and then spouted a bunch of social distancing. All words no action. No sanitizer or wipes offered. No amenities.
Cons: Seat choice flexibility, but it was basic economy...
Pros: Crew was nice
Cons: Lots of empty seats... during covid/social distancing there should only be 2 ppl in a row especially if there is room...it was crowded and not consistent with signs posted saying stay 6 ft apart
Pros: Always a friendly crew
Cons: A slight delay that they could have been quicker to alert us of
Pros: Staff was nice.
Cons: Nothing really
Pros: crew was nice and friendly and the plane landed earlier than estimated.
Cons: Middle seat was occupied on my flight.
Pros: On time and great crew
Pros: The employees were friendly and helpful.
Cons: We haven't made it to Rochester as intended. It is covid time and our flight had mechanical difficulties. The airlines has provided vouchers for hotel and dinner.
Cons: Boarding slow
Pros: We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive.
Cons: Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced.
Cons: As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment
Pros: I liked the room.
Cons: There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together.
Pros: Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent
Pros: This was a nighmare!
Cons: My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone.
Cons: American Airlines has terrible customer service. We were unable to board our flight at the Philadelphia airport because when we arrived (almost 2 hours before our flight) the ticket counter was already closed for the evening. No one from American Airlines could help us. We were left stranded at the ticket counter until it reopened at 3:15 am. We are very disappointed and disgusted with the poor service we received from American Airlines. After hearing multiple horror stories from others, it is safe to say we will never fly that airline again.
Cons: The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :(
Pros: Good is that they sent you to Finnair to correct AA created break in service...why would they pay for it? AA is just an operator per itinerary! Why would you care if ppl get help with connections!
Cons: Checked in online on Finnair and automatically for the second connecting flight...and not the first -AA. So, had to check-in again for the first flight at the terminal. Board passes were printed 2 out of 3 by AA and both had errors - wrong gate for the first flight and no boarding info for the second connecting flight - just blank! AA did not provide connecting info until I found an unoccupied employee at the terminal and customer service lines were about 20 people in 2 locations I went to. The connecting info should be in the itinerary they said at customer service...nope, it was not there either!
Pros: Entertainment on screens
Cons: The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger.
Cons: A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents.
Pros: The flight was quite emty and instead of packing everyone in the same area, we all had a row for ourselves which was very enjoyable. Flight crew was very nice
Cons: The interview by a British Airway agent before the flight. I have been to the USA many times and I totally understand this type of interview, but the agent was aggressive, asking questions that were totally irrelevant. She did not even care about why I was going to the USA or where I was staying. Se was rude and I was really unpleased by her attitude saying it was British Airways way off doing interviews. Again I have had many interviews before flying to the USA, never been a bad exerience before
Pros: Boarding and flight were on time.
Cons: My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse.
Cons: A longer trip.
Cons: Boarding was extremely slow and we arrived 1 hour late
Pros: screen in the seat to watch movie
Pros: Nice staff
Cons: Cleanliness. There was a ton of garbage in business / frost class back pockets. Seats were dirty. Tray tables were dirty. Not the best entertainment options.
Cons: Ohare baggage claim. I was first class and my bag came out last
Pros: Seats were comfortable and the way the seats are designed works great if someone on front reclines. It does not construct your legs or space in front of you
Cons: A sandwich or something of the sort would have been good
Cons: You take my money for nothing yu stolen my money why why you kayak my husband doesn't travel from Desmoines he is not in system why ????? bring my money back to my account aa
Cons: Wifi. Cleaning out back pocket of seat
Pros: The airline nore the airport were making people follow covid guidelines.
Cons: I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again
Pros: The check in process at LAX was very efficient and smooth. and the crew on the plane was very considerate. And the tv system on some of the planes is very enjoyable.
Cons: There was a technical issue on the plane so they had us get off and wait hoping they could fix the problem. It turned into a 3 hour wait. They covered a meal for us which was good and gave us $50 off our next flight. But I’m not sure I want to book united again. The lady at the service desk was not very patient (which is understandable since a loy of people had to rebook their connecting flights). But I was smiling at her and just asking how to go about changing our connecting flights and she seemed a little bit ready to get rid of me. And the next plane we got on, one of our tv screens didn’t work. And the connecting flight was delayed also because of a technical problem.
Pros: Cabin cleanliness is below average
Cons: Cabin service is average
Pros: I had THE WORST experience with ONE flight attendant leaving Paris CDG, flying to Chicago O’Hare. Flight #9334. On 7/26 @ 11:22am. I am hypoglycemic and the flight attendant skipped my line for food I acknowledged her three times and she ignored me so on the fourth time I raised my voice saying “excuse me ma’am” that seem to have irritated her or rubbed her the wrong way because her response was extremely unprofessional yelling at me and accused me of startling her. She compared my voice to the startle of 911 and caused a scene in front of the majority of the passengers. All I wanted was the food that was available for each passenger because she skipped My row. After talking to another flight attendant who claim to be a manager name Celeste who was wearing a visible name tag along with every other flight attendant except for her, I asked her for the name so I could write up a review she refused to give me her name saying it was against their policy to give up first names even though it’s clearly on everybody’s shirt except hers she removed it or covered it up w/ her apron even though Robert Robert was wearing an apron with his name tag outside of his apron like he should the attendant that gave me problems took off her name tag and covered it with an apron that was a violation of dress code. A simple apology is all I asked for but she refused to apologize and the managers only response was “I can’t make her apologize” Never in my life have I been treated with such disrespect on a flight as I am a frequent flyer to Paris on United everybody else and all other flights was extremely helpful and courteous. This woman started ranting and raving about 911 and getting people nervous for no reason. I will be writing a formal letter to the corporate office. I just barely got home and wanted to write this review because it ruined my experience in 9 1/2 hour flight experience. It was also very embarrassing for me and my family, as other customers were bothered by this and had to listen to this. I was trying to speak over the air conditioner and after the third time of her not acknowledging me that is one I raise my voice politely by saying “excuse me ma’am”. I am a frequent united flier. Furthermore I have scoliosis and I’m handicapped our flight got delayed by 3 furthermore I have scoliosis and I’m handicapped our flight got delayed by 2 1/2 hrs. By this time my back was throbbing and when I talked to the gentleman upfront he told me to write a letter for some type of compensation regarding everything I have been through. Here are pictures of the lady who is out of dress code the flight attendant and also out of line dealing with plus dealing with customers she’s obviously unhappy with her job and should not be in the customer service industry as I know for being a businesswoman myself owning my own salon I deal with customers all day and I know my number one job is to make sure my customers are happy I am not .

Pros: Rude gate staff. They were being very condescending in their tone while saying perhaps appropriate information. This occurred starting when one woman got in line. The sign kept changing...her accharine like tone telling her that boarding would begin at 1130 was unnecessary. Communicating with foreign passengers whose flight had been rebooked to this flight was very poor. Instead of asking them for the name of their baby, the gate employee kept asking them for the lap child name! This occurred over and over until finally they asked for the bany's name. The lady who is from Chicago started practically wagging her finger and just saying NO! to bags that might be too large. How she did this was overly rude even when the bag fit in the metal sizer!
Cons: Sorry....above is what I did not like. I like that my bag was shifted away, tagged and put on board...made it to Rome! Flight staff very professional!
Cons: To whom it may concern I had booked flight from Casablanca to Chicago via Frankfurt , on May 6th , by Lufthansa, two hours before the flight , at the counter in CMN , they notified me , that the flight , is over booked , and I can’t catch this flight , and they offered me different difficult options, , till the flight boarded , they offered me one of the most inconvenient flights , and reward me some amount , in this case : I missed my flight which accordingly , lose my appointment , and lose my business. I frustrated with this decision at late hours . I asked full consideration of all the difficulty situation and the turbles they put me .
Pros: The leg room and comfort in economy, for a 767, were surprisingly good but the quality of screen and entertainment was lacking. The screen on my iPhone is bigger than the screen on the seatback which if compared to other airlines is not up to the mark. The lack of facilities to charge things like ipads or iPhone was disappointing.
Cons: The seat comfort was good as was the legroom in economy. The crew were friendly and helpful and I found the overall experience good. If Unitied could build on that and just offer power (even usb) and larger screens they would be onto a winner.
Pros: Good. Seating. Not too crowded
Pros: bad movie choices
Pros: The flight was smooth. Boarding was a bit nerve wracking as a neighboring bin was not closed completely until just before take off.
Cons: The bathrooms were poorly maintained. There was no toilet paper and there was tons of paper on the floor. I was anxious that a piece of TP was going to be stuck to my shoes when I returned to my seat. The flight crew did clean it up. I'm not a frequent flier, but was taken by surprise that I didn't need to check in before getting to the airport. I was amazed that the airlines take it upon themselves to assign seats. I think that's a poor decision as a mom and her 2 small kids were scattered about the plane. Fortunately, people were willing to shuffle around to allow the mom to sit with her kids.
Pros: Not much to like on United. The boarding was the best part as the staff were somewhat helpful.
Cons: One nice flight attendant out of the five I interacted with. I'm flying United less and less because the service just sucks.
Cons: There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you.
Pros: Punctual flight and not filled to last seat. Excellent amber beer.option, no extra charge for beer or wine. Crew members were friendly and eager to please. They were happy to supply extra snacks and coffee or water between regular service. Seat reservations were properly done (unlike a flight in June on Etihad).
Cons: In boarding, putting groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line works poorly. Location of electric outlets needs better (i.e. some) documentation; had to ask crew. The heat fluctuated between too warm and too cold; had to put on and take off a fleece every 10-15 minutes. Chicken option for dinner rated spicy, so had to opt for pasta. No Asian options on flight from Japan; sad. So-so movie selection, controlling screen not very easy, screen often too dark. The list of movies in the United Magazine was incomplete and inaccurate. The size limits on carry-on bags and personal items was smaller than other airlines, unnecessarily so for the latter given the size of the space under the seat in front. United is inconveniencing customers without any justification.
Pros: Excellent flight
Cons: At check in time being told I needed a eta visa to enter Canada!
Pros: The staff all the way through were awesome. Facilities were clean and as expected.
Cons: Policies about ultra economy tickets sucked. I'm certain I was warned multiple times in the fine print about the hazards of buying a cheap ticket. The fact I was forced to spend money to check a bag and given undo stress about whether or not I'd get bumped because you're not allowed advanced check-in or guaranteed seats with basic economy ticket is not right. Seems the price should simply be the cost to guarantee a basic flight (two carry-on's, guaranteed seat assignment, advanced check-in) so folks can opt out and go for a cheaper ticket on another airline that offer a cheaper fare for the above mentioned guaranteed basic flight options. Felt like a bait and switch.
Pros: It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!
Cons: The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though.
Cons: Confusion and lack of communication about the extra screening process in the airport right before boarding. No information provided ahead of time, to alert me to arrive at the boarding gate early for the extra screening. After I passed through the extra security screening at the gate in Munich, and then went to the counter to complete the extra passport check and security questions, I was asked to step aside and wait. No one told me why. I had to insist on an explanation to the airline staff, and realized there was a mistake - they thought I had not gone through the extra security screening before going to the passport check counter, but I had. This created extra stress and delay for me, as this took place when boarding had started. Respectfully, I suggest that staff is more communicative.
Pros: Both flight were delayed and I had to reschedule my flights and miss my arrangements.
Cons: It looks like that there is no respect for Time .
Cons: I don't understand the purpose of basic economy. I bought my ticket months ahead of time and paid over $300 for it. Only to find out when it was time to board that I wasn't guaranteed a seat. EVEN THOUGH I BOUGHT A TICKET AND IT WASNT CHEAP. I was put on a waitlist and finally got a ticket after boarding was supposed to be over. I was appalled by the whole thing. Doing away with basic economy or just giving those who buy those tickets the basic rights that should come with an airline ticket should be considered. How can you deny someone a seat if they bought a ticket months ahead of time? What if I wasn't lucky and couldn't get a seat? Wait until the next flight hours later and get put on a waitlist there too? Something needs to change.
Cons: Leg I was only offered economy. Not plus
Pros: The attendents were helpful and nice except in the situation I've listed in dislike. The plane left on time and arrived early and we didn't have to wait 20 minutes for a gate to open up.
Cons: I chose the back window seat right in front of the restrooms. Crewmember even said it was the worst seat in the house. Although I didn't pay to upgrade, thee were available seats up there. The attendant even said she would ttry to move things around once people were seate without anyone asking. She just knew our row was going to be uncomfortable.. I am tall with big shoulders, the gentleman next to me was large. All that I ask is the attendant come back after all is settled and explain that it wasn't possible to move things around. Although, if there were seats available I should have been offered a different seat. I have flown a lot on different airlines. I've flown on a 15 hour flight overseas. This is BY FAR the most uncomfortable I have EVER been.
Pros: Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week.
Cons: Will be disappointed if you don't try to help.
Pros: The experience was bad all around. The flight crew was understanding and sympathetic to the situation but offered no concern.
Cons: The gate agent was not helpful when my flight was running late and was going to miss my connection in Chicago. 10 mins is not enough time to taxi to the gate unload and get to my next flight. The doors close 10 mins before even if it was the next gate the door would have been shut. Had to reschedule flight for not the same day or the next day but two days later! During flight my inflight drink was evening coffee and tasted old as if it had been sitting for a while. Was sat next to a sick ER nurse who was coughing and sneezing in and around the open cup. I was sick for 8 and half days following the flight.
Cons: Flights were significanly delayed that resulted in missing connecting flights. During my return trip I ran to make my connecting flight just barely on time and once boarded we sat on the plan for an hour before taking off. Flight to get to Richmond on united was a major problem. I work up with a notification that my flight time had been moved up 2.5 hours ( a problem as I live 2.5 hours away from the airport) I called and they said it was a mistake that I was good to take the origional flight. A few hours later I get a phone call from united asking if I could be at the airport 2.5 hours early. I said unfortunately no because I had already spoken to someone from united and they had reassumed me that the origional flight was still good. She then said if I couldn't make it early it was no problem. So I get to the airport at the origional time after speaking to two different agents who told me this was ok to find the plane delayed and causing me to miss my missed connection.
Pros: The crew was very friendly and efficient. They were extremely helpful with our requests. The entertainment was good, I was able to watch a movie the whole flight home.
Cons: We were expected to land at 5pm and did not land until 5:20pm. Upon arrival, the line to immigration was ridiculous. The machines were super slow and kept freezing. It took an hour before we could get to the X-ray line. At this point we had already missed the original time of our flight. Luckily the flight was delayed 30 minutes. After going through the x-ray machines we ran to our gate only to find out it had been changed and delayed again. We made it to our flight which was now rescheduled to depart at 7:23pm. After sitting in the plane for 45 minutes we did not depart until 8pm making our landing 2 hours after the original time.
Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: If nothing else United has been consistent in their late departures and arrivals backed by absolute lies about the reason for delays. Staff says one thing then Pilot says something completely counter. Then the lack of any sort of heartfelt appology adds to the insult. Every flight was overbooked by at least 5 people. Total incompetence. Moreover, United has made profit so obviously more important than client comfort. The seats were similar to a straight back Dining room chair except with your knees in your chest. They even took away the seat back pouch as a smal comfort to place items to be replaced with an 8 inch high mesh that fits nothing larger than your cell phone. A 6 hour flight and 1 drink service with 1/2 glass of soda. Pay $7.99 only to find out that video does not work through Canada which was the majority of the flight
Cons: I don't think I will be choosing to fly with United going forward. The staff at the desks were rude and very short. I had a layover in Chicago and did not receive any notification that my flight was cancelled due to maintenance. I went to each desk to try and find an associate and no one was available to help the several individuals wondering how to get switched to a new flight. All of us were just given a phone number to call. Once I found someone thy told me that there was no seats available on any of the flights. They found one seat on a plane that was going to laguardia instead of my destination of Newark and then proceeded to tell me that my bags will still go to Newark and it was my job to make sure I filed to get them. (Same thing happened the last time I flew with United) I'm very disappointed all together with how I was treated as a customer.
Pros: The flight was bumpy but otherwise pleasant
Cons: There was a rude passenger that yelled at me as I was exciting the flight suggesting that I cut her off as we were getting off the plane thinking that I took her bag. It was outrageous and completely ruined the flight for me. I realize this has nothing to do with the flight but it just made me feel so crumby and attached that I felt the need to share it. Also the leg room was a joke. We barely had any room to move. I probably won't fly coach on united again due to the bad taste it left in my mouth. Unfortunate because it's hub is in chicago.
Pros: The trip TO the United States was bearable.
Cons: This flight was a complete disaster. I ended up b=on a different flight to Newark, as my flight to Chicago got canceled. Then that fight was unable to land, so I spent hours in baltimore, and missed my connecting flight to Brussels. By the time I finally arrived, 4 hours late, to Newark, I had to spend 2 hours in a line to get re-book, for a flight the next night. I was compensated for all this mess with a $10 food voucher, and had to get a cab from the airport to the closest and cheapest hotel. My flight to Brussels was uneventful, save one rude flight attendant, and I got to school a day late.
Pros: Nothing much
Cons: Your refund or rescheduling policies.
Cons: No free wifi. No free entertainment. Smaller than a kids small fruit snack bag of trail mix for a 4+ hour flight. Gate issues delaying our boarding-resulting in late take off.- and delayed transit home to last available route of the night- thank goodness!
Pros: We didn't crash
Cons: The gate attendant reopened the plane for the man in front of me because he had one book bag and refused to let me on because I had two. The room and taxi voucher were adequate. But $30 in food vouchers doesn't get you very far in an airport. Also that's just enough to survive the lay over that was caused by your maintenance issues. Your attendant then tried to put me on standby all day the following day with a guaranteed flight at 8pm. I then asked him to check other airlines and was able to get an 8am one. The sheer lack of customer service is impressive. PS if your airline screws up, the least I deserve is a seat upgrade or some free sky mile points.
Cons: We had a confirmed reservation on tickets that I bought months ago. However, when we went to get our seats, the flight had been oversold. We were involuntarily booted off the flight- even though one on standby got a seat, and another person did not show up- we could have gotten on the flight! We were heavily compensated and the staff were as generous as they could be, but it was completely frustrating and upsetting when you have to go through that, after ahead time planning to be booted off a flight like that.
Pros: Crew were nice
Cons: They charge for absolutely everything and flights are not even that cheap. Seats ate very uncomfortable.
Pros: Super rude, starting from the check-in counter to security inspection to boarding the plane- every attendant we asked a question to or asked for assistance had no clue what to do or respond.
Cons: Get better-qualified personnel.
Cons: On time
Pros: Caring and through personnel in the face of a virus.
Cons: Have electric outlets, seats too tight, have beverage service
Pros: Crew was nice
Cons: Lots of turbulence
Cons: Very little leg room
Pros: Las aeromozas muy secas y déspotas. Los asientos duros a pesar q viaje en salida de emergencia
Cons: La distancia entre asientos es RIDICULAMENTE justa, y no se diga cuando el pasajero delante se reclina, no sean pichicatos con el espacio....
Cons: Boarding timeliness and process was bad.
Cons: Flight was over sold and lost my seat
Pros: Got me from point a to point b
Cons: Crew informing passengers better, being reimbursed for seats i paid for but couldn't sit in because of a plane change
Pros: My experience was so terrible I don’t have anything positive to say.
Cons: 1. The original flight I purchased was less than $100, Volaris cancelled it and the only flight available for me to purchase was then $150. 2. After I purchased the 2nd flight, I called within seconds because I noticed my mother’s name was on the ticket instead of mine! I had previously purchased her flight and somehow the kayak site had auto populated her name, i know for a fact did I did not type in her name, it is longer Han mine and has a middle name, i don’t even have a middle name. I think it was justfly, the third party who sent the confirmation email, I explained the situation, they took my contact information and since I had just called they would reach out to Volaris to see if they could change it to my name, and would reach back out to me within a few days. They never called/emailed me back. When I called Volaris they charged me a name change fee off $80+... I don’t know if anyone cares about customer service at Kayak, I have been purchasing all my personal flights through Kayak since 2007, this is by far the worse ticketing/airline experience I have ever had. Also, Volaris charged me $10 for my backpack that I store underneath the seat in front of me! They are a terrible airline, that straight out rips people off. This is the last time I fly with them, and probably last time I use Kayak.
Pros: The crew were absolutely amazing. They offered to tag my carry on free of charge as baggage. No issues whatsoever with stroller or car seat. Very friendly staff.
Cons: The plane itself was uncomfortable and would prefer complimentary snack or beverages.
Cons: Check in was super slow. Had to pay for everything
Pros: The crew was very knowledgeable and assertive in their commands.
Cons: Planes are too small. There weren’t any TVs on them and all 4 of my flights ran late.
Cons: The flight was almost 2 hours delayed
Pros: It was awful
Cons: Everything needs to change. I will never use this airline again!
Cons: No water on any flight. Terrible customer service. Will never fly with them again.
Cons: This fly was pretty good!
Cons: Volaris closes flight doors an hour prior to departure. Thats unheard of. Meaning they close even if you do not have to check luggage and even though its within boarding time, if you are not checked in at least one hour prior to departure you will not be able To fly And they offer no refunds or reb
Pros: El abordaje fue muy rapido
Cons: Que sean más puntuales
Cons: They need to look after their passengers. For example I was running 10 minutes late from when I found out that they were boarding the flight and none of the people from the checking stands where telling me what I could do or were to go. Especially if they are seeing me struggling with my luggage.
Cons: luggage waiting time and boarding
Pros: Crew was helpful but a bit overwhelmed...seat was marginal...should be replaced (seat cushion had caved in)
Cons: better notice of the delays....cleaner plane...don't appreciate boarding right after others deplaned without sufficient time to prepare for next flt
Cons: Our flight was scheduled for a day before the day we actually left, so we went to the airport the day we were supposed to leave just so they can say our flight was canceled, we had no heads up before that, the airline had to give us tickets for the next day.
Pros: Good basic airline ALWAYS reserve your seat ahead of time
Cons: Softer seats more like cement
Cons: Everything they over charge on everything and they forgot to send our luggage so I had to wait till the next flight to get my luggage to get are boarding tickets the wanted to charge us $7 dollars for each person and for each luggage they charge us $50 dollars per when it should of been $26 dollars
Pros: Changed seat easily.
Cons: Flight was late, little organization at gate, seats so small you hit the seat in front of you so never comfortable, no complimentary food and drink, extremely loud airplane noises throughout flight.
Pros: Nothing really
Cons: The seats cannot recline and they won't even give a glass of water. I had to pay adittional 60usd for the documented baggage eventhough when I bought the ticket I filtered my search with flights with the documented bag included!!
Cons: Maybe courtesy soft drinks and peanuts
Cons: gates changed multiple times, got different information from different people. had to shuttle to the plane. over an hour delayed but no notifications of delay were ever updated
Pros: crew was friendly
Cons: Poor lack of food choices. No video or radio to listen to for 4 hour flight is unusual especially international flight.
Pros: Again, good time and no delays.
Cons: Sitting in the first row was a bit difficult. Could not sleep, the crew made so much noise. My handbag had to be put in the bin, I asked for it to get my pen to fill a form out for immigration. Because I don't like to stand up while the plane is flying, I put it under my seat. One of the crew made a loud comment that I was hiding it. I did not appreciate that at all.
Pros: Very nice crew
Cons: Departure 35 minutes late.
Pros: Tight seats
Cons: They couldn't help me check my bag all the way through to Oakland. The seats were very tight and close together and uncomfortable. I believe we were also delayed.
Pros: Shock to see pillows and snacks were on sale. Even more surprise when my carry on was weighed with my purse yet others boarded with more than 20lns limit. Stick to your own rules especially since I ended up paying $60 to check in language that was 5lbs overweight.
Cons: Shock to see pillows and snacks were on sale. Even more surprise when my carry on was weighed with my purse yet others boarded with more than 20lns limit. Stick to your own rules especially since I ended up paying $60 to check in language that was 5lbs overweight.
Pros: On time, arrived early, good price, good service
Cons: Got to Acapulco too early in the morning to check in the hotel
Pros: The Valaris staff were most helpful and courteous. The flight crew was professional and the airplane appeared be just fine.
Cons: The lack of a check-in machine and the long lines at the check-in counter were annoying. Also the legroom in the plane was minimal.
Cons: Tried to pre check a day before the flight using Volaris app and wasn't able to complete the process, as the app was timing out and it was forcing me to buy a seat in the plan, which I wasn't interested in. It seems to me that the airline is trying to nickel and dime you in every opportunity they have as they wanted to charge us 50 USD extra as our carry on luggage was under the 22 LB restriction but our backpack added 2 pounds. I have never seen an airline that is weighting each and every passengers backs and purses during the boarding process to see how much more money they can get per flight. Also, I found it kind of funny that after take off the flight attendants were selling the empty seats in the front which didn't had more leg room (not first class) but were just closer to the cabin. You are already charging for sodas, CAN YOU JUST STOP THERE?
Cons: It was very delayed and they gave very inaqurate information about it
Pros: Left on time and arrived early.
Cons: Was not offered water or snacks. Good thing i brought my own.
Pros: Everything was ok.
Pros: Buying the extra space is worth it.
Cons: Volaris didn’t tell us what happened and didn’t tell us we were going to board late.
Pros: The direct flight and on time
Cons: Got no service from the staff called them over and over they would never come back to me after they said they would be right back
