Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and felt like squished in like sardines. A little more cabin room space would have gone a long way."
Pros: "Food. As usual with avianca was amazing."
Cons: "The staff. Completely unprofessional. Flying executive from SJO to JFK with the Costa Rican staff was amazing. This one compared, was deplorable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed out of JFK for some unknown reason (definitely not weather or missing plane since it was the first flight of the morning). Several passengers were told their connecting flight would definitely be held for them. A few of us asked for a guarantee because we would rather pay to rebook another flight than get stuck, and the gate attendents at JFK said it was certain we would make our flights. Once we got to El Salvador we were told they never intended to hold our flights. Avianca agents there told the handful of us going to Cancun we we're rebooked on Copa Airline and would have to go to Panama first, then Cancun, and arrive around 10 pm instead of 11 am. Other passengers were stuck in El Salvador for even longer. For our trouble, they only offered a $70 voucher for Avianca which is essentially useless to most of us since it has extensive restrictions. On top of this, the plane seating was small and the food was terrible. When we got switched to Copa there was at least slightly more leg room and better food. Do not fly Avianca!!"

Pros: "Fast and confortable, like every flight should be!!"
Cons: "The crew in Costa Rica was new and it took more time to departure because it got a little bit messy at the beginning"
Pros: "Flight is what we have come to think of as okay because nothing hurts"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "Delta is the best--I sat in a comfy seat (middle seat at that) and watched 3 movies during my flight. Couldn't be better!"

Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"
Pros: "Efficient hop to Boston"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "The environment and efficiency."
Pros: "The entertainment is always great on delta and they have new snacks now!"

Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Pros: "Entertainment, newer plane, great crew. and complimentary meal? fantastic."
Cons: "I checked in 12 hours in advance for both trips and was assigned a B seat toward the back of the plane for both, with no capability to select my seats in advance."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "Complimentary meal and entertainment, very good service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Seat 43B?! I checked in 12+ hours in advance."
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "Get a day in NYC"
Cons: "Two daytime flights booked so can't get to Bangor until the 9:00 pm flight tonight. Aitline only coveted one night at the hotel. Had to buy a second night so we don't have to carry our bags around all day."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "entertainment services"
Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."
Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."
Pros: "All went well with every aspect of the flight."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "Enjoy able"
Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."
Pros: "The amount of movies to watch"
Cons: "Seating not enough room, couldn't use the overhead lights for 7 1/2 hour flight. Ridiculous."
Cons: "The quality of customer service and efficiency was lacking at the check in counter. Wrong information was given to many passengers as far as checking in baggage and being sent to several line ques for the agent to tell me in the end that I was told the information incorrectly since the beginning. I therefore was unable to board my flight on time, got switched to a new flight and the new flight was delayed for 3.5 hours."
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Cons: "One crew member was running late. So we could not start boarding until she got there. Which created a chain reaction of events making the flight late. She was not a pilot. So why couldn't we begin boarding while waiting on her?"
Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."
Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Pros: "The crew was nice. It was a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work. Very long flight to not have entertainment. No plugs for personal devices. It looked like an older plane."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Pros: "Crew's service good, punctuality excelent"
Cons: "No Entertainment at all"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"

Cons: "Everything was awesome keep doing the same great job thanks :)"
Pros: "The whole experience was great. Pleasant crew, food excellent. I will recommend this airline for future trips."
Cons: "More affordable especially because this was a last minute trip because of death in my family."
Cons: "We had a very early flight (1am) with an estimted arrival time at 6:30, but lights went on and breakfast was served at 5am- hard to get some rest!"
Cons: "I have tried to pay for and upgrade for my wife to fly with me in business class. The answer was that there were no seats available on the flight from JFK-PTY. But there were seats in the coneection flight from PTY-POA, because a passenger from Havana got businness seats without paying extra."
Cons: "Crying kicking baby in the seat behind mine ruined the flight."
Cons: "Lost one of my bags Food barely edible. Above was flight jfk to Panama City This flight had no tv that worked. Audio was broken."
Cons: "They completely damaged my luggage bags, so much for paying to check in to have it returned broken, thorn and without wheels. I want a reimbursement for the ticket or the cost of 2 new suitcases."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the airline personnel very polite and attentive. I recommend to my friends and family to choose Copa for their next flight."
Pros: "Copa was a great airline"
Cons: "The Panama airport was horrible! Was so hot and uncomfortable there was no air condition and no where to sit ! I will think twice before going through that airport!"
Pros: "Food was good, roomy seats"
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June and when I went to check-in I was given a standby ticket and was told that the flight was overbooked, and that I should have done mobile check-in. I was very anxious that I did not have a seat, and that I would not be able to board the plane. They kept telling me at the gate that they would call me when they had a seat until I forced my way to the counter and handed them my boarding pass and said I need a seat now. Poor communication and disorganization."
Cons: "Poor costumer service . Luggage was wet . All of the clothes ruined"
Pros: "The food and drinks"
Cons: "Took a lot of time for takeoff"
Pros: "I liked the food and the crew's service"
Cons: "Seats that were not able to be moved from upright position. Those seats at least should have more space for legs and be given pillows or a way to make those passengers less uncomfortable. Movies were really old!"
Pros: "Services food on time"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plenty of space. Also served food. Everything was in time or early."
Cons: "Crew manners is poor"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time. I had an exit row seat and the legroom was excellent."

Cons: "They canceled it."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "No Internet connection at tocumen airport"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made sure I was comfortable."
Cons: "Size of aircraft. Might opt for exit row next time. After business class I would suggest that you board from the rear so passengers don't have to stand and wait for others to put up carry on luggage before you can pass."
Pros: "Great Entertainment choices on this flight. I hardly even noticed the time passing."
Cons: "They didn't have any food I could eat, except for an incredibly small salad. The crew informed me that I could have requested a special meal 24 hrs in advance, but that information was sadly provided too late."
Pros: "Everything was very good. Excellent crew!"
Cons: "I ask for a blanket and they didn't have it."
Cons: "Ustedes cambiaron las fechas de nuestra reserva. Se hizo para el 9 de agosto. Y nosotros la pedimos para el 9 de julio. Cuando llamamos a cambiarla, salía más caro que comprar otro tiquete ida y vuelta. Yo tuve que comprar un tiquete por otra aerolínea para regresar de Nueva York a Medellín."
Pros: "Service on the leg to Panama City was great, but the flight was delayed about one hour in departure"
Cons: "Because of the delay leaving JFK, I missed my connection to Santiago and had to take a later fligjt in Economy and only received a $400 voucher"
Pros: "I liked the crew service, timing, prefesionalism!!"
Cons: "Food is not too good, I don't eat pork and seafood (cause allergies) and he the attendant couldn't tell me if the sausage was pork or beef. They need to be informed since an emergency could happen in the flight. Everything else, perfect."
Cons: "Filthy seats, specially the table had a sticky part. Got into my clothes and arm. No entertainment, NADA! Food sucked,"
Pros: "Crew was very understanding of our frustration and di the best they could do within their range(which wasn't much to be honest)"
Cons: "Poor job in the gate at boarding and with announces, we were held in the the runway for about an hour plus without proper indication of why, all the could say was "bad weather". Non-stop turbulence and food wasn't served until good 3 plus hours into the flight, (remember to add that to the time we were held at the runway as well). Entertainment on board was extremely limited."
Pros: "The seat was OK"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours on departure and the reason for the delay was never communicated. We had to move to another gate and board busses to take us to the plane which had been moved from the original gate. The meal was awful. The crew basically ignored us. And the luggage took 45 minutes to arrive at the carousel"
Cons: "El abordaje"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "We didn't get a beverage until two hours into the flight. Cookie meal and a ritual serve that once. No pre-beverage service or post dinner coffee service."
Pros: "Excellent job of a couple of girls"
Cons: "Again, lay over and food"
Pros: "Katherine was helping me perfectly with my extra luggage when I was doing my chek-in. She was helping me to pass security check because I was a bit late. really thankful."

Pros: "everything was fine"
Pros: "The service overall is great. The airplane is comfortable. Airport in Panama has very good service. I would take Copa again."

Pros: "Service top notch"
Pros: "On time and arrived early!"
Cons: "Had almost a 4 hour delay !!!!!"
Cons: "The staff encouraged me to get on my first delayed flight because my second was delayed as well. But as I landed from my first flight the second flights delay was reversed and I had no notification of this change. I missed my connecting flight. Had to stay in the airport all night, had to fly into a different destination at 7 am. No explanations, no help. Terrible."
Pros: "Left on time Nice flight attendants Arrived early"
Cons: "Runway time in New York"
Pros: "The fly departed on time"

Pros: "Everything was good from boarding to communication from the crew till we got off...I've heard a lot of bad things about American but I had a good experience :)"

Cons: "American Airlines does not care about its customers."
Cons: "Plane was not board on time. Delayed taking off."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant & professional"

Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight was quick, seamless, on-time, and comfortable. WiFi available. Arrived 10 minutes early. Recommend the shuttle because if you don't get one flight, they'll get you on the next. These days, the shuttle is more dependable than Amtrak."
Cons: "Would appreciate a USB port or an outlet."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. I enjoyed the in flight entertainment and overall flight. The flight was only a couple of hours so there were no meals. I enjoyed a hot cup of tea during my flight. I was able to take a quick nap during the initial flight and catch a movie on the way back."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA is undergoing renovations, I had to take a shuttle bus to my gate. The shuffle down stairs, bus ride, and lines for boarding were annoying."
Pros: "The crew did everything they could for the passengers to make them comfortable and informed about the situation but unfortunately it was out of their hands."
Cons: "It may be La Guardia Airport that is the one to blame and not AA, but long story short I was on the airplane on the ground in NY for about 5 hours. We had a domino effect of things happen that caused us to be delayed and then cancelled. First a Gate change to a different terminal after boarding was suppose to begin so we had to take a shuttle over and we're still missing 50 passengers, Engine problem that required maintenance, refuel because we were in the plane on the ground waiting for so long, deplane and replane for 10 mins because of a law, on the runway and back to the gate for all these different occasions. When they finally let us off the plane after all these hours it was because of weather (although the skies were blue and the pilot was confident it wouldn't be an issue) they didn't actually cancel the flight until 5pm, my flight was suppose to take off at 9am. They were also required by law to give us free snacks Bc we hadn't eaten all day or had fresh air--these were all chips and soda...in gluten free so I had to starve. AA customer relations said they couldn't compensate because the issue that was documented in their records for my flight cancellation was because of "weather"... my flight couldn't be rescheduled until the following afternoon, making me have to cancel work 2 days in a row and pay for multiple taxis and and extra night of boarding. I will NEVER fly AA or La Guardia again."
Pros: "It was comfortable, nice staff and had a meal as well"
Cons: "No power outlets. A bag of chips in 1st class is pretty weak. Compared to Europe flights we can from, aircraft felt like 1960's Aeroflot."
Pros: "It was on time boarding and landing"
Pros: "Was fairly standard flight. Left in time."
Cons: "Was in last group and had to check carry on."
Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Service and flexibility, needed to call online for assistance"
Pros: "My neighbor."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for over an hour for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Very full flight arrived 20 mins early."
Pros: "Smooth flight, barely late."
Cons: "Broken sink, horribly uncomfortable, cramped seats."
Pros: "Communication from personnel was good. The desk workers did there best to deal with upset customers"
Cons: "We were delayed to do weather. Nothing AS could do but they tried."
Cons: "I've got to the airport at 4:30am because my flight was at 8:00am. Unfortunately I had to wait until 12:30pm to take another flight because American Airlines didn't have a flight crew for our aircraft. They did not refund money for the waiting, they didn't give any voucher for breakfast, they just gave us chips and drinks. People were very anxious and mad about the sInitiation."
Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."
Pros: "Planes boarded on time"
Cons: "Long wait on runway before take off"
Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "It seems like the plane was recently renovated and I loved the comfortable seats."
Cons: "There was virtually no free entertainment available."
Pros: "The flight was fast and good service"
Cons: "En El Salvador the person who check my luggage was rude And throw my medicines to the garbage and she told That I need a proscription from my Dr , never it happen before , I think she work for El Salvador airport but she was rude"
Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Pros: "Never again. I had a connecting flight with a one hour layover and almost missed it. The plane to charlotte was very late boarding. Once i land I rush to my gate because I only have 20 minutes before they start boarding ; I get to the gate and have to wait almost an hour. At this point I still havent eaten because I am waiting around by the gate and the attendants are not communicating any information. Then they finally tell us that the reason the fligt hasnt boarded was because the flight attendant misplaced her luggage in the previous flight and was waiting to arrive to the terminal. Now how is that my issue? American Airlines needs to do better!"
Pros: "Slept like a log Gate staff were nice Lounge was very average poor food and beverage. Slow internet. Outdated furnishings. Not worth the access fee."
Cons: "Smallish seats and overhead storage Onboard Staff had brisque manner"
Cons: "Typical American. They start with a 75 minute delay because of crew problems. Then we sit at gate for 30 minutes while they "fix" something. Then they push out and cant start the plane so they cancel. I'm learning to hate American"
Pros: "Terminal changed at LaGuardia and we had to take a bus to another terminal. The staff were extremely kind and helpful with our items and transportation. The large size of the water cup."
Cons: "I didn't like that there were dirty used food wrappers in seat pocket in front of me. The fellow sitting in front of me was in the bulkhead seat, yet reclined his chair all the way leaving me very little space. I really wish flight attendants would ask travelers to be considerate and not recline their seats during there welcome speech. Or even ask if the person being squished is ok. There were no snacks offered. Drinks were not offered till at least an hour into flight. My first flight was canceled. Kayak let me know, American never notified me!"
Pros: "It got cancelled!"
Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Just because the flight was full.. They checked in my luggage but put on the wrong tag. I have no change clothes for more than 24 hours. Hopefully, they'll deliver to me by today. But I am not holding my breath on it"
Pros: "That we arrived on time to RDU."
Cons: "It left 20 minutes late from LGA and we had a connecting flight in Philadelphia. We had to run really fast and made it in the last minute."
Cons: "Muy mal servicio, no dieron ni agua solo galletas vencidas ni una bebida, muy mala experiencia no recomiendo viajar en UNITED"
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "The entire experience at Newark was dreadful although the actual flight was fine."
Cons: "I was given misinformation about which gate I was supposed to be at and when I eventually got to the proper gate, the plane had left early. The United people that I spoke to in the terminal were very rude and disrespectful. The one woman that I spoke to was extremely nasty to me and it seemed like she was under the influence of something. This experience was totally unacceptable . Not everyone is comfortable flying, especially if they have not flown much. Airport personnel should take that into better consideration . Instead of flying next time, I probably should take the train!"
Pros: "Fast and easy boarding"
Cons: "No tv, no , no magazines"
Pros: "Everything on Kayak was fast and simple!:)"
Cons: "i booked my flight on Kayak and immediately been cancelled dunno why"
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily disorganized. Boarding announcement didn't specify which flight. Use of group lines was not explained ahead of actual boarding. Employees did not always use microphone to explain boarding. Very noisy group of travelers on board on night flight. Bathroom sink area too small."
Pros: "Staff were lovely"
Cons: "Food was Terrible, couldn't eat the veg option and the TVs kept freezing"
Pros: "We had nice flight even so the airplain was full."
Cons: "Not quite.little bit noisy."
Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"
Cons: "we have been sitting in the cabin for over an hour while they have feuled the plain as they forgot to complete it"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, the crew was fantastic"
Cons: "Maybe a bit of food."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Economy Plus ... how nice to have some extra legroom on a long flight! LOTS of movie options for the 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Formallyncorrect behavior by crew"
Cons: "Very little understanding, empathy for exhausted and very thirsty passengers after significant delay. Water, refreshments served very late after take off. Crew just doesnt care, they do their work, that's it."
Pros: "flight is OK + in business class"
Cons: "terrible delay..."
Cons: "Crew members were not helpful."
Pros: "Crew professional"
Cons: "Unhappy that my luggage didn't make it"
Cons: "Grant flight , i flew with my daughter in business class the service was very good , food was great , missed watching direct tv as the Olympic Games was going on , but over top notch"
Cons: "Cancelled and rebooked on a different airline with a long layover."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "There was a delay of 2 hours and 15 minutes that cause me to lose my bus and forced me to wait in the airport for 6 hours. Very bad experience"
Cons: "leg room and cabin temp was too high"
Pros: "11 hour delay announced iteratively in two hour increments. Worst flying experience to date. I may no longer fly united as a result."
Cons: "The 11 hour delay preceding my 14 hour flight."
Cons: "Ana flight attendants are the best!!! Excellent service cheeers"
Pros: "Economy plus room"
Cons: "The flight was not Swiss as I booked it. It was operated by United. It was over 45 minutes late boarding and over 2 hours late leaving. Tone of people were checking in at the gate and thus didn't pay extra for economy plus. There were loud and inappropriate passengers and the flight crew didn't do anything about them. I will avoid United at all costs the next time I travel...truly."
Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food was OK, the entertainment was left to be desired. The comfort was just ok, but to be expected"
Pros: "We were definitely on an older plane. It didn't seem like a plane usually used for international based on the chair back pocket but I don't know. I'm sure it will be retired soon."
Cons: "We were definitely on an older plane. It didn't seem like a plane usually used for international based on the chair back pocket but I don't know. I'm sure it will be retired soon."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Cons: "How about getting friendlier staff. The male flight attendants were insanely rude."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Dominican Republic on time."
Cons: "However the crew was horrible; there was no food provided. (Crackers j don't call food)."
Pros: "The plane and crew functioned well. From a purely technical stand-point the flight was a success, though it was delayed at Newark because the maintenance dept. took a good half hour to 45 minutes in transmitting its clearance to the captain."
Cons: "A lot of people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and dispositions were crammed into a comparatively small space. It was close and stuffy, very little space to stretch or move about when that was allowed. I'm not tall, but in terms of body mass I'm thicker and wider than many folks, but not obese, and my body thermostat tends to run on the warm side. So the flight was a bit of a physical and mental ordeal for me. The entertainment might have been great had my headphone port been operational. A previous passenger broke off the plug in the hole and the flight staff didn't have a pair of pliers on board to pull it out. Consequently, I was unable to listen to the media in-flight. Also, I couldn't recline my seat because the fussy older woman who sat behind me complained when I did, which made it difficult to snooze."
Pros: "They let us know ahead of time so we could arrive later to the airport, and did not have to wait in the airport."
Cons: "- They were very strict about carry-on luggage size, and insisted even after the flight being 3 hours late. My carry-on fit into their overhead compartment just fine. - No food was offered during the 6 hours flight. - Chairs in coach are uncomfortable for long flights (same as some other airlines I've flown with). Feet or head rest could be nice additions that don't require much additional space per passenger."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Cons: "Very stressful experience at counter check in. Airline representative didn't know the difference between the expiry date of a visa and that of my passport.. he just ran away with the passport to check and didn't get convinced and it took him long to return, with me just waiting and knowing nothing about where he went. Only the passport needs to be valid for three months after returning from the trip. Not the visa. He should know that. I got my boarding pass at the end, and he didn't apologize for the inconvenience or anything."
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."

Pros: "We have a list a cookie on the fly"
Cons: "The see were too cloused"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Cons: "The crew was held up in Houston we had an additional lay over onto our already 3+ hour wsot"
Pros: "The seats were mostly comfortable (although extremely cramped), pillows and blankets were provided. I liked the one free thing offered; ability to follow the planes progress on my iPhone."
Cons: "All of the screens on the side of the cabin I sat in did not work so even if we chose to pay the ridiculous fees for content it wasn't an option. Charging $16 for internet is gouging to the extreme. Truthfully, I would choose to pay a little more for my ticket if I knew that United did not cram people in like sardines, provided good quality free internet, provided free video content (on consoles that worked), and provided a small snack (better than a little wafer)."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to Vegas!!!"
Cons: "Flight uncomfortable the staff wasn't all that pleasant nor attentive..."
Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"
Pros: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Cons: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Pros: "Tight seating funky food"
Pros: "I was such bit cold on the flight. Other than that it was great"
Pros: "On time, food"
Cons: "Much less space then on a flight to US"
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Pros: "Plane was not crowded. Less claustrophobic. Bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Sound system. The PA blasting through ear phones is annoying."
