Cons: "I never received anything about my booking. I went the airport Wednesday morning not knowing if I’d actually fly out. I only had on my Kayak app a trip itinerary. Thankfully I did. In Atlanta I added my Skymiles # to my trip. Upon arrival in Mexico I rec’d a push from Delta about my trip with my Record Locator. Flying home was to depart at 8am. When I rec’d my boarding pass it stated 8:55am. While waiting at my gate Delta sent me a text at 7:30am that my flight would be leaving at 8am. That confused me. Needless to say I was suppose to arrive CVG at 3:49pm, but instead was booked on a flight departing Atlanta at 4:30pm. Plans at home had to changed for Friday evening as I was not arriving at mid-afternoon. Needless to say I’ll probably not book thru Kayak anymore."

Cons: "I purchased a business class seat and did not get a business class seat. In Philadelphia the agent would not give me the available seat because I was not on an upgrade list. He said I would have to call american. I tried several times. (I also called british air and they said they could not help.) Each time i tried American the message said they had high volume call back later. I reported this to BA and have not yet had a response."

Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go for a long haul flight. We were comfortable and able to get some sleep."

Pros: "Nice people at the counter in Paris!"
Cons: "How They managed the cancellation!!!very poor! Send to Miami!!!very desagreable people at the counter there! No one flight was in time going to Europe!!! I arrived a day later !missed my train connection to Strasbourg.!!!! Coming back could not confirm my flight because the page did not allowed me to do so.....my place was all ready given!!"
Pros: "Selection of movies, food, air hostess"
Cons: "There was no personal screen like most flights have now. We had to watch the movies on the general screen overhead; however, the sound for the headphones didn't work so we couldn't enjoy those movies. The flight was a non-stop 9hr flight, which made it seem very long without having entertainment."
Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight."
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."
Pros: "I survived the flight."
Cons: "Missed connection Uncomfortable Rollercoaster flight"
Pros: "Entertainment aspect of flight was excellent. Good was not bad and staff attentive."
Cons: "Check in was terrible. There was confusion and it was terribly disorganized. I arrived 2 hours before my flight and almost did not make bag drop due to the long line (atleast 50-80 other people in the same situation). Then had to rush through security and the terminal to make boarding. Cleared second passport check to be told when the flight shelf have been taking off that the flight was delayed. I get sick when I fly and it helps to eat and due to all the check in delays I could not eat. So when the flight was delayed for mechanical reasons I wanted to go eat to be told that for the next three hours that I would be stuck I could not leave to walk around get a meal or anything. The communication for the staff was poor and their attempt to keep their customers comfortable was lacking."
Pros: "Direct flight was good, food was good, entertainment was good. Boarding was quick and handled well."
Cons: "Upset it was an American Airlines flight and that wasn't communicated clearly, went to wrong terminal when departing!"
Pros: "Friendly crew made a long international flight with a 14 month old as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Flights out of RDU to Philly were late. AA will not let you get on another flight going to the same destination if your checked luggage has been committed to particular flight beforehand. You have to fly with your luggage."

The zipper of the suitcase was partially undone as the suitcase came off the carousel and a hairbrush fell out. However, it wasn't until I got home that it was obvious someone had rifled through my suitcase. Everything was a mess. I'm very disappointed and will hesitate to fly United in the future."

Cons: "Flight missed and now sitting here in an empty airport waiting for my next day flight at 650PM. Btw all local hotels are booked. Thank you United for stranding an active duty Soldier!"
Pros: "United is very reputable airline with great pilots and safety record. Prior to leaving for Mexico, the plane was examined amd found a 'mechanical issue'. All of the passengers were immediately switched to a different airplane. The safety of the airline and the pocedures used to ensure the craft was 100% was very comforting."
Cons: "I was bothered by the fee to check in 1 bag and the lack of food and ebtertainment upon the return flight from Mexico to Los Angeles. During the entire 4 hour flight, passengers were offered a bag of chips and nothing else, not even for purchase. Thus particular plane didn't have any screen for entertainment.

Cons: "Apart from the bad weather, the flight from Houston to Mexico was delayed because we were waiting for two flight attendants that were coming from another flight. The airline needs to have enough crew."
Pros: "The flight was good overall although I wish on a 5 hour plus flight there was more food for free."
