Airline reviews

Pros: "The flight was great in every way except passenger adherence to mask wearing."
Cons: "On a short flight, people do not need to be served beverages or snacks that require them to take off their masks."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "On board entertainment"

Pros: "Flight crew were fun."
Cons: "Let us know we were going to be arriving late for our connections. They should ask flyers if they are on time for their connections so they could disembark the plane first."

Pros: "Crew! And comfortable seats"

Cons: "If the complimentary snack was something other than a sweet item. Both flights had a Biscotti type cookie. A salty crunch item like ChexMix or Pretzels would have been great. I lost my wallet so I was unable to purchase"

Pros: "Empty plane so lots of space to lounge and quick boarding"
Cons: "Sat on runway for hour after plane landed, just waiting for a gate. How is this even possible? With no offer of beverages or food. Or updates. Crew was hardly seen maybe once or twice on a six hour flight. When asked to take trash, they would reply, we are only doing drinks at the moment."

Cons: "Lost my bags"

Pros: "Boarding and placing my luggage away was actually quite smooth for me despite being the last group. Take off was delayed for some sort of paperwork which was only a minor inconvenience since I was not relying on a strict time sheet."
Cons: "crew was pleasant enough, they where a tad snarky and seemed to struggle a bit with their professional facade"

Pros: "It was a quick flight."

Cons: "No food, just snacks."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Attendants were pleasant as was the actual flight"
Cons: "They were missing pilots for the flight so we were delayed for an hour"

Pros: "Easy and fast boarding"

Cons: "I came to airport 36 min ahead of flight departure but I could not check in because they closed self-serive machine and there was no person at the dest to assist! I called Alaska customer service and they could not offer any help but ask me to pay 360 dollars more to take another flight. This is the worst experience I have ever, Alaska airline really should improve their service. In the future I will try my best to avoid Alaska airline. Rude people who don't really understand customers."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."

Pros: "My seat was great . The flight was smooth and on time both ways . The staff was friendly."

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."

Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."

Pros: "You need an N/A block for this survey. There was no food from Missoula to Seattle because it’s a short flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed more than 3 hrs, causing me to arrive home after midnight. On my departing flight my air vent didn't work and on my return flight my light didn't work. very dissatisfied with my flights."

Pros: "Alaska Airline is great to travel with because of the kind a courteous crew."

Pros: "Six days later and the bag has not been found. The process for reimbursement had been intentionally designed to waste my time."

Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"

Pros: "Staff and crew were very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Short & sweet"

Pros: "We boarded early, landed early, I got the whole row to myself what more could a girl ask for?! The flight crew was very kind and helpful, I was very comfortable and felt safe."
Cons: "Watching my beautiful state of Montana burn from the air."

Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"

Pros: "The flight was on time the crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Got a free carryon."

Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed to the point I had to stay in Montana an extra night. One of the worst expiriences flying I've ever had. I may never book with Alaska again"

Pros: "quick, on time, friendly"

Pros: "Nothing!"

Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"

Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"

Pros: "The whole boarding and flight process is well-organized and the crew was excellent."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was extraordinarily slow. Slower than other flights I have been on. Just seemed old."

Cons: "Flight was delayed more than two hours out of Missoula. Reason wasn't made clear by the crew. Updates from Alaska were good, but the extensive delay was a disappointment."

Pros: "I liked that Alaska Air was very flexable in accomidating my need to pysh up my flight schedule to get home quicker as my mom was dying. Thanks to them I made it before she died and was able to say goodbye & be with her before she passed away."

Pros: "People were friendly doing their jobs."

Pros: "Loading was fast."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little cramped, but it was a smaller plane."

Cons: "There was not food service nor any entertainment on the flight this the one star setting. You really need an n/a rating in your scale. The lack there of makes your survey inaccurate."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and very sweet. Awkward asking if we needed anything. Loves it! Best airline"

Pros: "Offering price"
Cons: "Real price. Ridiculous after carry-on and other fees"

Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("

Cons: "Something unexpected came up and I was unable to fly out on the date the ticket was purchased for. I contacted the airline several weeks to see what options I had to switch flights, or get a voucher for a later date. No flexibility. I purchased a one way ticket for $125.60 and they have a cancel/transfer fee of $125. So I had a wasted ticket that just flew empty. I asked if I could transfer the ticket to someone else... They said $125. They told me if I had purchased the travelers insurance it still would be the same fees as well. Not earning my business."

Pros: "I got almost a full Alaskan Amber to myself because no one else had any"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and 40 minutes due to weather in Seattle which was not the airlines fault but I was sick and crabby"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "It was a very long flight, but no meal or entertainment was provided. On other airlines I've flown in the past, these things were included on international flights."

Cons: "Only thing was we had to wait longer than 20 min for our luggage in mpls which was guarenteed. Will I get $25 gift card for future use. Will use AA again when I get the chance."

Pros: "Most everything besides them seats being to close in proximity."
Cons: "That they seats weren't wide enough."

Pros: "Wifi access and comfortable seats"

Cons: "The exit row that I paid up for, for leg room, didn't have extra leg room. First world problems."

Cons: "Snacks need some variety"

Pros: "The crew at Missoula airport was amazing, and most friendly"

Pros: "Delayed boarding but made up for lost time in the air"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"

Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."

Cons: "delay due to lack of deicing equipment"

Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"

Pros: "Nice short flight, crew was nice."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "In one hour flight we could have some drinks and food. Snacks... can’t believe they don’t have any food/alcohol"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Delta staff at the airport JFK"

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."

Cons: "Ran 2 1/2 hours late, poor customer communication"

Pros: "The crew was excellent, friendly, and efficient."
Cons: "The most difficult part was boarding and deboarding due to some of the passengers not listening to the guidance of the crew."

Cons: "Way crowded even in comfort plus Flight very late leaving Missoula Got to SLC just as flight was boarding for LA"

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: "Everything A-Z"
Cons: "They sell the headsets for $2!!!!!!"

Cons: "Leg room was lacking."

Cons: "Food was ok...cramped space"

Pros: "Operated by Delta so great!"

Pros: "Staff are adept at dealing with these issues but it is a systemic problem."
Cons: "Rather than pay luggage fees, people are bringing on their luggage and the flight ALWAYS runs out of space. Suitcases are being moved around right at people heads and more than once I've been hit and seen other people be hit in the head by a suitcase. Getting luggage in place used to be a simple and minor issue, now it occupies much of the time, energy, and attention of the cabin crew as well as the gate crew. I realize this is making money for Delta but the cost is being paid by people being hit in the head with luggage and the crew's unavailability to deal with other issues."

Pros: "Bulkhead seating is great! Seems like food is improving... Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "Eventhough booked more than 6 mos in advance, could not find a second seat in COMFORT PLUS section! Bathrooms should be attended by flight crews more frequently! Where's the latest movies?"

Cons: "Terrible landing"

Cons: "My sit changed last minute, noisy babies"

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

Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."

Pros: "Friendly"

Cons: "8 hours waiting in airport for a flight that could have been canceled at 3pm and given us our day back. We are traveling as a couple and one of us has a medical procedure scheduled that can’t be canceled. The lack of preparedness for this weather situation is disheartening."

Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't change flights on the day of travel"

Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Delayed due to mechanical issues. For 3 hours. No offers for free drink or wi fi. When we finally land we were on the runway for half hour."

Pros: "Delta could not help FAA regulations, so it was not their fault our initial flight was delayed an hour and 50 minutes. The gate agents in Missoula were fantastic in trying to help us figure out connection options to Baltimore."

Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."

Pros: "In some Delta flights that I had in the past the plane was just ok, not bad, not good. But this plane ATL-MEX was great, very nice and conformable plane, it looks and feels excellent!"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "There was no tv screen, so if you don’t have a smart phone or tablet you can’t access to the entertainment. Also you should warn passengers to download the Gogo entertainment app because it’s very slow to do it in the flight"

Pros: "On time and helpful"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Variety of entertainment options, much was complementary, which was definitely a neat addition."
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay right before boarding, which was not the airline's fault, but air traffic control at the destination. Unfortunate, but things happen."

Pros: "Every flight was efficiently set for boarding. Flights arrived a little early both times. Great on-board crew!"

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Pros: "The entertainment was good and we didn't get charged for the blankets, as in other airlines, though it would have been nice not have needed them, the plane felt colder than 70 degrees!"
Cons: "Longer delay occurred when another passenger got into an argument with staff. It took soooo long for security to come to fix the situation so we could continue boarding. We were also packed in like sardines. I would pay more for more room, though business and first class are available, they're way too much."

Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"

Pros: "It was my husband's birthday and the stewardess (red dress, long brown hair) went out of her way to make him feel special by bringing champagne, cookies and even chocolate once we were getting off the plane. I was very touched."
Cons: "The guy next to me was kind of smelly but was very nice."

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Usable to hear gate agent announcement in LAX"

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Boarded, day on the runway for nearly 3 hours, and then cancelled. No hotel allowance and all hotels near LGA full."

Pros: "Crew made flight enjoyable. Lots of Starbucks coffee and food. Can use wifi for free to stream movies to iPad, which is much better quality in picture and sound than onboard video."
Cons: "Selection of movies to stream to device is fewer than what is available for onboard video."

Pros: "Same as previous flight."

Cons: "The wifi was never turned on so we never had any entertainment available. This made the flight less enjoyable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather. That is understandable. However the crew was not helpful in sharing any information with customers about changes to connecting flights. Much time was wasted and I had to reschedule my flight. The staff members that booked my hotel and my new flight were short and brief and not very helpful or accommodating or informative. Overall I didn’t not feel like a welcomed guest and I do not feel enough compensation was offered for such an inconvenience. Not being able to have my bag overnight was a hassle. I had no clean clothes and had to throw out my contacts because I had no solution. I also couldn’t use the meal voucher they gave me because everywhere in the airport was closed by that time. No stipend was given for toiletries or food delivery. Very unimpressed."

Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"

Cons: "Some of the Crew members were not covering their nose with their face masks"

Cons: "I can’t believe with all that’s going on American doesn’t care. The terminal was packed with people. Terminal B Charlotte airport. Packed!!!. I had no choice. In the future Jet Blue. I know it’s all about making money the flight was packed. Logan airport Delta every other set has a sticker don’t sit here"

Cons: "No weather delay"

Pros: "SeAts"
Cons: "No entertainment no WiFi. Lots of angry people about that."

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"

Pros: "Extra seat width would always be nice"

Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"

Cons: "Super hot inside the cabin and little we could do to lower the temp"

Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Go go in flight and in flight video not working for majority of flight."

Cons: "Nervous neighbors"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"

Pros: "They got another flight for us"
Cons: "4 hour delayed"

Cons: "Flight was fine. Wanted to change ticket to allow more connection time between DCA and JFK and the first two sales representative sucked. I considered never flying American again. On board crew was great."

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Pros: "I appreciate that I was able to switch seats thereby giving the cat and its owner more room."
Cons: "I have to say I was very surprised that there would be a passenger flying next to me with a cat in a carrier seated next to me."

Pros: "Only thing I like we got here early."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants. No wifi or entertainment which was stated on the flight info and ticket"

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Pros: "American reminded me why I always chose to fly with them and not other airlines. Kind fly crew, prompt notifications, Mobile Boarding Passes, quick check-in process and more. I loved it!"

Pros: "Great wifi. Nice comfortable seating. Great entertainment selection"

Pros: "The inflight wifi and entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Inconsistent gate staff. Happened twice to. Me in the recent trip where a multi flight journey the first leg my luggage was fine to get in board, the second flight it was tagged as too big. I've seen massive pieces of luggage go through no problem and then a random person is stopped to have their bags checked in."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."

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: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "Smooth ride and free wine"

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"

Cons: "I have no complaints"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "People was nice"

Pros: "This was British Airways operated by American Airlines. I'm usually not a fan of American Airlines but this was a pleasant surprise. Plane was on time and pleasant. Seating was not roomy but what we expected. We were served dinner with option for and simple breakfast. Entertainment system was up to date with personal screens and choice of movies and games."
Cons: "There were six of us flying and we choice this flight because it was the lowest cost we could get per seat. When we try to check in for seating, we ended up having to pay significant fees to get seats together. I feel like this wasn't upfront and we may have used other Airlines/ flying times if we realized this wasn't the cheapest way to go. (I'll have to read the fine print better next time)"

Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We lost our connection to Jacksonville"

Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"

Cons: "i didn't like my seat 8c with no room to put stuff under the seat in front because there was no seat in front and its like theres even less leg room than a normal seat bc crew going up and down the aisle i had to really squeeze in"

Cons: "PAID FOR SEAT WITH EXTRA LEG ROOM AND GOT NONE! DON'T PICK FIRST ROW"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"

Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable and badly maintained. Seatback stowage netting was detached and useless. There was an equipment change (new larger aircraft) I had a B (aisle seat) on the original aircraft and on the new plane my "B" seat became a middle seat. This was completely unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Lack of communication from flight deck or cabin crew as to engine shutdown and takeoff delay at MSO. Just plain irritating and completely unnecessary"

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"

Pros: "The gate agent in IAH was efficient and kept cerybody informed of boarding procedures in a professional but lighthearted manner."
Cons: "Can’t think of a thing. The plane was on time, service as great. Seats were comfy enough. Good job United!!"

Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Could have had a polite crew, ran on time, or had internet that lasted more than 10 minutes after I paid for it. I'll never fly united again."

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "These people have no idea who or what United Airlines is. They work for Delta, and make sure they tell everyone about it."
Cons: "See above. The flight itself was fantastic. Larger planes are the best! Thank you!"

Pros: "The flight from MSO to DEN on United always involves small planes. Almost always the crew and attendant() are efficient and friendly. Tonight though our attendant made us all feel like we were in 1st class. She called everyone by their names when serving (Mr. O'Connor could I get you a beverage?), checked on us multiple times and was so friendly that she stood way out!"
Cons: "Squealing brake pads need some attention"

Pros: "Flight attendants were exceptional. Loading was quick and easy. The flight left the gate on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I am old enough that I still feel insulted getting a tiny bag of pretzels on a flight."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Crew was super friendly"
Cons: "Small plane, bumpy ride is to be expected. This one was a bit more than even I’m used to."

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."

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They were not on schedule and I missed my connection. They said it was not their problem and can't compensate me. On top of all that they were rude!"

Cons: "Was stuck in a middle seat on a full flight"

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "The flight was good and the crew was great the flight attendants were very professional and down to earth the gate agent helped me with my seat due to I did not have a assigned one confusing. Overall it was good"
Cons: "Did not like the way the entertainment had to be watched."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Original flight was rebooked, and I almost missed seeing my dying grandmother. Got no apology for this huge inconvenience and stress."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

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: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

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: "Super friendly and helpful"
Cons: "all pretty good"

Pros: "Everything went better than expected, no line, easy flights , short layovers. Everything just went smooth."

Pros: "The layovers that I had in Denver were the perfect amount of time. Boarding and baggage was a breeze."
Cons: "It's flying so there isn't much room in the seats but that is to be expected."

Pros: "staff very professional"
Cons: "small seats"

Cons: "United delayed the flight. This information became available about an hour in advance- well after we drove two hours (We live in Montana) to get to the airport. The attendants said / not our problem. I called United's Customer Service number to discuss ways of mediating the delay that resulted in us missing the wedding venue and entire reason we booked the $1400 flight. I again got a "not my problem" response- no the flights can be modified, no we will not provide vouchers, no we really don't care that our poor quality and service cost you and your family tremendously in time, effort, and lost memories. I know we are at the mercy of airlines, but what a painful disappointment. My experience with Delta has been better and I suggest avoiding United Airlines if other flight options exist.... Even consider a very long drive over the use of the airline."

Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
