Pros: "Christina brown was amazing at gate"

Cons: "Luggage drop was severely understaffed. We had checked in, had boarding passes but there was a 45 minute wait just to drop off a checked bag."

Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."

Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."

Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."

Pros: "There were pretzels. Wifi but I brought my own entertainment."

Cons: "I showed up 2 hrs before the flight. Was told the flight from Toronto to Minn was delayed 30 minutes and go stand in line to speak to an agent. There were approx 20 in line yet only 2 gate agents at 4:30pm. One of the gate agents kept helping the Premium members and bypassing the standard line. The other agent was in a coma as his average person at counter was 10 min. Finally get to counter and they hand me a boarding pass going via Salt Lake in 30 minutes. But has a 3 hrs layover in SL. I then get to US Custom check for US residents re-entering and the line was a good 30 minute wait. You would think the Delta folks would have accounted for that line. I had to ask everyone in front of them if I could skip in front as the plane was now departing in 10 min. I had to then run on a bum knee and was the last to board. The agent at gate was saying we were calling your name but did they think I could have been stuck in customs? On that short of a window they should have walked me through Customs to make sure I got on a flight they wanted me to take versus my scheduled flight."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Embarked and disembarked quickly. Flight arrived early"

Pros: "After 4 delayed and missed flights they did put me in a motel"
Cons: "Trying to make arrangements and being on hold for 30 to 53 minutes several times all while trying to second guess flights. Not being allowed on a flight after being bumped several times because only 1st class seats were available . Sprinting through the airport with all luggage only to be told I couldon't not board even though the flight did not leave for 5 more minutes"

Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."

Pros: "First class stewardess was excellent."

Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Poor food"

Cons: "Not the airline’s fault but we were delayed. That’s the only thing that could have been better"

Pros: "Once our plane finally got there the crew and people working the desk were super efficient and concentrated on getting us on our way ASAP."
Cons: "We were 6 hours delayed. The weather was bad so it wasn’t anyone’s fault. It just sucked."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "I didn't like taking a bus to Toronto instead of a planr"
Cons: "Being told my flight was cancelled as I approached the counter. No email, call, or text."

Pros: "It a nightmare experience. The flight was cancelled as we stood in line for boarding. I missed the second part of my flight to Quebec. It was the last flight out 12:30 pm!. There was no help. Come back go borrow was the.answer."
Cons: "The way the agents refused to help. Come back tomorrow is an incredible response when you ask for help."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight to Chicago was cancelled, we didn't get so much as an email letting us know (checked the flight status at 1am for a 8am flight and it said on time) we found out at the porter counter at the airport that or flight was cancelled and we were delayed until the next day!!! Next day we realize they didn't schedule us on the first OR second flight of the day but the third so we were delayed by 36 hours instead of 24!!!! The planes are tiny, very old, quite dirty. The staff seem totally non chalant about all these cancelled flights and allllll of the delays and repeatedly say that the airline is understaffed... hello i don't care why my vacation was cut short by 36 hours and i got stuck paying 200$ for a hotel room tat i didn't get to stay in!!! Get your act together Porter!!!!"

Pros: "Great service! Attentive staff. Fabulous free lounges with drinks and snacks. Cappuccino in real cups in Toronto. Free wine and beer on flights. Real glasses on flights and in Toronto lounge. Gate agents were friendly and so helpful. Nrwark had a nice smaller lounge. Lots of legroom on flights."
Cons: "You have to be aware that these are props, so flights do get delayed or cancelled due to weather. Both of our flights were delayed. But they were very up front about it. Also put us on earlier flights automatically which was nice."

Pros: "- Staff/crew are exceedingly pleasant, although not necessarily 100% helpful - Free beer and great snack options onboard are a nice departure (see what I did there??) from the usual in-flight experience. - When they significantly messed up my entire first day of travel, without complaint they sent me a voucher for future travel."
Cons: "- My first flight was delayed and I wasn't notified until an hour beforehand (even though the flight was delayed due to an incoming flight they knew well ahead of an hour beforehand would not be there). I could have arrived at the airport later and paid less for my parking. - I was told by a gate agent I would still make my very tight connection (spoiler alert - I did not), so I did not ask to be rebooked on a later connection immediately. - Once it became clear I would likely miss my connection due to being delayed after boarding, I asked again about it, this time of a flight attendant. I was told there were 23 daily flights a day to my connecting city (there are not) and it would be fine. We sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes after landing waiting for a gate and the last hope of making that connection was gone. - Upon arrival in Toronto it turns out my connecting flight was cancelled and everyone had to be rebooked. The very pleasant customer service rep told me not to worry! They automatically rebook everyone and I've been scheduled to leave 10 flights later - the following morning. At 12:45 p.m. their best solution was a flight at 8:30 the next morning (later canceled). When I calmly explained that was not ideal, I was immediately given the "last seat out today" on a 9:30 flight (later delayed then canceled). I'm not sure who they were saving that for, but it is unacceptable to rebook people for the next day when they have free seats. I was resigned to spending 9 hours in the terminal (literally just a room with a few snacks) because I was also on standby for every flight until then, and fortunately after checking in again 5 hours later, I was handed a ticket for the flight leaving in 15 minutes. If I had followed Porter's original plan, I have no idea when I would have made it, as I already mentioned both of those other flights were later canceled and I've already gone over how Porter rebooks passengers. - I found out after I spent $20 Canadian on a sandwich and chips via the Porter website that they are supposed to give meal vouchers in a significant delay, but I was not offered one. - On the way back, I saw myself being set up for the same rigmarole. My first flight was delayed more than a half hour, leaving me with a very tight connection. Thankfully, I arrived at the airport earlier and was able to catch an earlier flight because as it turns out, the connecting flight I would have missed due to the delay ended up being canceled. I can only imagine what the rebooking process would have been, so I am glad Porter is accommodating about switching flights. I imagine they do so to save them the rebooking later, but still, it is not something all airlines will do. - Both flights out to Montreal were incredibly hot. I tend to run cold and I was sweating. The flights home on a warmer day were fine, so I'm not sure what was going on there."

Cons: "45 min delay"

Pros: "I missed my flight. In checking desk, my ticket transferred to the next flight for free :) Good selection of free drinks and snacks on board"
Cons: "- one and half hour delay - I left many necessary stuff behind to be under 9 kg carry on bagges which never get weighted. However, many people brought heavy backpacks full of stuff on board."

Pros: "Cancelled with no reason automatically booked to another flight day later with 6 hour layover. No one to call as they send this out at 11 pm. Original flight was early AM"

Pros: "Friendly accommodating crew, always great service"
Cons: "Delays - there are always delays with porter"

Pros: "Uneventful flight!"
Cons: "Delay in Toronto...not told why..."

Pros: "Excellent crew service , plenty of leg room & free drinks."
Cons: "Again late take off"

Cons: "I missed my connecting flight and they did not help me find a place to stay as it was all their fault. Worst customer service!"

Pros: "I flew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours"

Cons: "They were not organized. Delayed every flight and cancelled two flights and offered no complemsation. I thought there'd be better customer service."

Cons: "Major delays. Flight hot. Crew very nice."

Cons: "Delayed for 60 min. Thought I was miss my connecting flight but it was also delayed...by 90 min!!!!"

Cons: "We've been sitting on the ground in Toronto for an hour. When we landed they said no gates were available, which is moronic."

Cons: "All flights were backed up for more than 1and half hours. Thank God that I was able to get out on a earlier flight that got me to my destination my regular scheduled arrival time."

Cons: "Had to wait for luggage"

Cons: "Very bumpyyyyyyyyyyy"

Pros: "The flught was great. Very impressed by real glass glasses. The flight attendants were wonderful"

Pros: "They served beverages in REAL glasses, in their waiting room they serve FREE coffee"

Cons: "Seats did not recline at all"

Pros: "My trip was excellent.Coulb not ask more. Thank you."

Cons: "We were unable to rebook or use flights as s credit so when plans changed even though it was months away we were just out the money"

Pros: "Crew was friendly , everything else - standard"
Cons: "Delays of this and other flights on this day ; Hand luggage was first approved during check - in , later taken from me abruptly - I was not prepared . Finally delivered upon arrival with some minor delay; the content seemed to be in good shape, but it traveled practically open"

Pros: "It was efficient and organized. Check in was fast no line. We also got on earier flight. In Toronto side the terminal is beautiful and clean. I wish NYC has airport like this."

Pros: "on schedule"
Cons: "I arrived early enough to possible catch the previous flight, but the gate attendant didn't want to be bothered with my request."

Pros: "every all round was perfect. The most enjoyable thing about this flight was the smooth landing we got."

Pros: "Free cookies"
Cons: "The flight crew seemed like they all hated their jobs"

Cons: "I did not like that my flight was canceled, and then delayed a few times. I did not like leaving my original plane only to wait in a hallway with everyone else for almost twenty minutes to finally be allowed to go to customs."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My first flight got cancelled. I had paid for luggage checkin nd the flight got cqmcelled, I still havent received any refund. My second flight was terribly delayed and landed on another airport. It's the worst airlines ever."

Cons: "The flight was repeatedly delayed, at the gate, on the departing runways, and on arrival waiting for a gate. The Porter employees lied in ongoing manner about the length of the delays. I was seated by the departure gate and heard them tell passengers repeatedly, "10-15 minutes", when we were eventually delayed for 2 hours. When we were had landed and were delayed waiting for a gate to disembark, and the captain came on the intercom to tell us it would be a "five minute wait" the passengers literally laughed aloud incredulously."

Cons: "I was originally booked (booked flight on Feb 1) with a half hour layover and then had a flight change ( mid June) to a 4 hr layover taking off in a different plane. When I got off in Halifax, new passengers boarded to go to Ottawa...? Why remove an Ottawa bound passenger so you can replace with a different Ottawa bound passenger? Not cool Porter...."

Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours"

Pros: "Entertainment n/a. My flight was really quick. We took off around 9:55pm and landed at 10:30pm which is crazy because it was supposed to be a 56min flight ! Porter makes you feel like you're in first class with their aervice. They also have a comfy lounge to wait in."
Cons: "There's no prayer or meditation room"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and plane was fairly easy to make travel with a 6 month old much easier."
Cons: "Not ev enough pre boarding time."

Pros: "AS ABOVE"

Cons: "The flight attendants were not agreeable and not even really polite no entertainment"

Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."

Pros: "The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?"
Cons: "The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant."

Cons: "Had to spend the night in Toronto for flight delay"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They over sold tickets"

Pros: "The flight attendant Kaldon was amazing. He was friendly, professional, and you could tell he loved his job. He truly made the short flight something special."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours"

Pros: "It's on time"
Cons: "."

Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."

Pros: "There was an excellent agent during boarding. I didn't catch his name but he was a tall dark skin gentlemen and he went over and beyond to assit me. His kindness left a lasting impression on me. I only wish I had his name, because he deserves to be noticed for his excellent service."

Cons: "The flight was considerably delayed, so that we missed our connection, the airport personnel at Newark sent us all over the place attempting to pass off the problem onto somebody else- even encouraging passengers to go to Montreal and "figure it out from there." Bags were taken off the plane and then put back on...the subsequent flight (the next day) was also delayed, and required half he plane to sprint through Montreal to their connections. It was not worth it. Especially considering I tried to call Air Canada for some of my refund and the number they gave me was a fax line."

Pros: "We had lots of leg room unlike the Air Canada Rouge flight that we took from Toronto ON to Kelowna BC. Also very little table on the rouge flight."

Pros: "Boarding by zones worked efficiently and boarding was quite smooth. Flight was smooth as well."
Cons: "First time flying this airline and I was surprised to see TVs on the plane though they had a smaller selection than other airlines. They made an announcement at the gate before boarding that anyone with a US passport had to complete an info card. I feel that was an inefficient way to collect that information as people who arrived after the announcement did not complete it. The card seemed a bit pointless."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"

Cons: "The staff was really nice. However I was asked to switch seats and a flight attendant spilled water over me. They were very thankful that moved and very apologetic about the water so I feel bad for bashing them, I just think I should have gotten a free snack or something. The rest of the flight was alright."

Pros: "I was surprised at how much leg room there was. Also, there were a lot of entertainment choices for such a short flight."
Cons: "They didn't clearly call zones, so I wasn't sure when I could board and ended up being one of the last people to get on the plane."

Pros: "Great crew. But aircraft had mechanical issues."
Cons: "Stuck on plane for 90 minutes before take off."

Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."

Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."

Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."

Pros: "Really took advantage by jacking the prices on return flight changes caused by their cancellation of outbound due to weather Because I had two one way flights, the changes required for the return flight were my problem"
Cons: "Ripoff 500 and two hours of hold time to get acrewed"

Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."

Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."

Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable and didn't recline"

Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Delayed for 4hrs and less than adequate meal voucher for $10 for dinner? Very disappointed and I'm a long time AC customer."

Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."

Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."

Pros: "Everyone was super polite"

Cons: "Short movie list"

Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."

Pros: "We were very impressed with Air Canada and would highly recommend flying with them to any destination!"
Cons: "Organized, friendly, polite staff. Everything ran very smoothly, especially the actual flight."

Cons: "Difficult to understand the boarding announcer at the gate, although it may have been a function of poor audio equipment at the airport."

Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."

Pros: "Space and meals"
Cons: "Entainment"

Cons: "International flight over 6hrs, yet food not included on flight?"

Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."

Pros: "Hourly flights in a Boing 676. Comfy economy class seats with leather headrest (cleaner than fabric). Ample overhead space for carry ons. Individual TV monitors with entertainment (I prefer leaving it on flight itinerary status while reading a book). Good bretzels & tomato juice served by a multilingual flight staff. Boarding, departure & arrival on time to the second. Can't ask for more."

Pros: "The person who checked me in at Newark was very sweet and helpful. Also, at Newark, the blond woman who was organizing people so they didn't miss their flights waiting for security was very courteous and professional; she made people feel informed and calmly got everyone on their way."

Pros: "Flight attendant very caring and friendly."
Cons: "Gate attendant very rude - made my daughter cry Her seat was way at the back. Baggage handlers lost a luggage strap - sturdy one 7 boarding pass The gate was changed to one at the end farthest from original gate It was supposed to be two flights - she ended up with 7 boarding passes in the end. Second really unpleasant flight with Air Canada in less than a year. Will avoid Air Canada from here on."

Cons: "Salty pretzels!"

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "not even a little snack served with the drinks and the amount of legroom was minimal and I'm not tall"

Pros: "The crew actually enforced the zones when boarding, which often isn't the case and tends to slow things down."
Cons: "This connecting flight was worse, as we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour and were not provided with so much as a single beverage the entire time we were waiting or flying. Apart from the great in-flight entertainment system, the whole experience was brutal."

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment and smooth boarding were the only good things about this flight."
Cons: "Unfortunately, my flights were delayed due to show, which is understandable. However, a friend of mine told me my flight was delayed before Air Canada even announced it. I had incorrectly assumed that the website had made a mistake because we were boarding on time. Once boarded, they announced a 1 hour delay."

Pros: "We didn't bring any snacks for our kids due to airline policy. The airline only offers beverages now. We were expecting something to eat and my son was so hungry. The hostess was kind enough to give us pringles but it was too late. That's when we were about to land. At least let us bring our own snacks if you are not giving any or let us know in the beginning if there will be food upon purchase only."

Cons: "Ticketed for Air Canada, but it was a code share flight with United Airlines. The check in at United took over 15 minutes because my reservation was not recognized by the United online system. Luckily a United agent was able to work through my paperwork and get me checked in, with luggage, via Ottawa to London, Heathrow. However, at the boarding gate for my flight to Ottawa, my boarding pass was deemed invalid and it took another 15 minutes to issue a new boarding pass - with seating at the back of the bus. Was a frustrating/annoying process. Luckily I encountered two capable United employees who worked to resolve the issues."

Pros: "The staff were efficient and friendly. The entertainment system is great."
Cons: "More room - but the flight was short and the price was right, so that's not a deal breaker."

Pros: "Gate assignment was only 44 minutes before take off and with the size of LHR got there after boarding had started. Confusion as right beside it was an AC direct flight to Toronto also boarding so lines were mixing. A hot meal provided which was good except for a stale roll and awful "salad". A hot wrap provided later in flight that was awful, should have used pizza pockets. Good crew and good flight. Always carry active noise cancelling ear buds or headphones."

Pros: "There wasn't any aspect of this flight not too like."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike. I loved every detail of this trip."

Pros: "Lucky as this was not a full flight so I had the seat next to me empty and lots of legroom with a bulkhead seat. The attendants were very nice and the onboard entertainment had a good selection."
Cons: "The food is just not good. Air canada needs to get a new provider."

Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

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"

Pros: "It was a small plane and it made up for some lost time in the delayed departure. The one air stewardess was also nice."
Cons: "Waiting for hand luggage on arrival slowed me down to catch my connecting flight. The flight was delayed to start with."

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 boarding was horrible. First it started 30 min late. Then we spent 30 min more because a technician was trying to fix one cabinet."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It wasn't on time to board"

Pros: "It was nice. We were able to watch TV which made it go by quickly. Everyone was very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight, but not to long"

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: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."

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"

Pros: "atmosphere"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew was honest. Provided ice water."
Cons: "Prop plane didn't have air conditioning (flight 4989) thank God it was only 45 minutes and FA provided ice water."

Cons: "The plane was so damn HOT inside. Then we sat on the tarmac for 40mins, while being cramped inside with no word from the flight crew, on why we were not taking off. Worst and most uncomfortable flight in years for me and the rest of us suffering passengers on board.... Horrible Horrible Flight"

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"

Cons: "I purchased a direct flight and was not told the flight was cancelled until I arrived. I was put on two transfers and arrived to my destination 10 hours later than planned. I want my money back."

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)."
