Due to an issue with our plane we missed our connecting flight. We had to choose to stay in a hotel or receive two 15$ vouchers for food… we chose the food as we had an early departure time and it was already past midnight. Then we couldn’t use the vouchers anywhere in the airport due to the fact that they wouldn’t take them unless they were printed … all in all we missed a half day of our very short vacation …. I understand things happen it just felt very like no one we talked cared that we missed our flight they didn’t help us in any way until begged…. Very hard night in an airport ….

All staff very friendly and accommodating

Internet access was much better than non-existent American Airlines. Need higher speed, to watch entertainment on our phone would have been great!

After a delay, the flight departed and it was a smooth flight. Good service from the flight crew and we arrived home nearly on time.

Seats were surprisingly comfortable for an economy ticket. Leather, plush, with good cushioning. Decent leg room. Takeoff and landing were on time. Recommend.

Thank you.

Cons: "None"

Cons: "When I made the reservation, I specifically requested window seating in the back of the plane. I did not get either, for either flight."
Cons: "When you select the meal options in advance through the Copa Airlines site the phrasing of those ptions is not very clear and I was stuck with a choice I didn’t want (“meal with fruits” - it was pretty confusing in English or Spanish - while I assumed perhaps the dessert items would be substituted with fruit, instead they brought me a pretty mediocre fruit platter). They said there was no way to change this. Copa airlines personnel at Panama airport actually were kind of rude about it."
Pros: "All service"
Cons: "All excellent"
Pros: "The call center was not accured The fligh atendent did'nt pay any attention"
Pros: "Planes and crew"
Cons: "long wait to enter the plane due to 2nd security screening"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats: on one leg (Panama to Mexico City) the seats are just like in Economy class, only a wider and more legg-room. But no FOOT REST, which is essential in a long flight. Laniding in Mexico was via a staircase and a bus (no fault of Copa). Reservation via BOOKING turned out to be a problem (could not make changes in flights). I had to do it via "influence", a pain in the neck."
Pros: "One of your crew members went above and beyond to help a family that was sitting next to me. That kind if service was unexpected and a huge help to the family. We were all impressed. They were all very cordial and polite."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "I did not like having to sit on the floor while waiting for the plane to board. After going through screening, we were held in a room that had about 75 chairs for a plane that held over 150 passengers. room and seating was way to small for the passengers boarding the plane."
Pros: "Food was ok, Some of the crew were friendly better then Mia Panama."
Cons: "The airport personnel did not help me with adding my miles to my Cops Cinbect card, they said it was no value and that Cops Connect membership want Copa, Worse they broke my expensive Nautica luggage by losing a wheel and my luggage was not even 22 kilos"
Pros: "Food and drinks."
Cons: "Bad entertainment selection and screen."
Cons: "Not enough smiling from the crew"
Pros: "Lisa Gilliard attended to us in business class. She was efficient, professional and top notch. Service was excellent under her leadership."
Cons: "The online booking company was confusing and not friendly"
Pros: "- nice staff - food on the plane"
Pros: "All of my grievances regard the Panama staff at the airport and on the plane, the staff and services at O'Hare were top notch. Customs was extremely fast and efficient and everyone was friendly and did their jobs well. As far as the Panama airlines go, the food was okay, nothing special but not disgusting, and not all the flight attendants were unpleasant."
Cons: "The worst thing that happened was mean spirited security guards at the airport did a security check before allowing us to get to our gate. They forced us to dispose of a bottle of water that we had bought at that very airport. We were then quarantined into a waiting area with no seating and no access to other water, bathroom or food. Then on the plan we were offered beverages twice, so I was only able to get about six swallows of water from Panama to Chicago. Dehydration makes a plane ride a lot less healthy and comfortable. The staff was mostly unpleasant, the seats were really small and uncomfortable (more so than any other airplanes I've been aboard), and for some reasons they kept turning the main lights on and off, allowing us to sleep and then waking us all up for no good reason. Unbelievable."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly, one of the friendlier crews I've flown with lately. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Planes are old and outdated, no entertainment for medium/longer-haul flights"
Pros: "I liked absolutly nothing!"
Cons: "I was not even allowed to board the flight because of not having my yellow fever vaccine document. The reps were rude to me, and were not the least bit helpful. I left the Galapagos a day earlier than scheduled to make this flight. I wish I had never booked this flight, it does not seem like I will even be reimbursed for it. I asked them to give me a document or anything as proof that I was denied on flight because my credit card company requested it, but they rudely refused."
Pros: "All the sckedual was ok"
Pros: "I loved the food and the flight attendants' customer service. It was awesome and they were very nice."
Cons: "That I almost was left without food because the flight attendant passed by me because I was sleeping . Although it my fault because it's not fair to wake a passages up. But for food I think it is fair."

Excellent flight

Very bad.

Kayak has not issued me a ticket for my second leg. And no one responds to me. Horrible service never again.

Alaska Airlines was well run. They were also helpful and were positive even though flights had been cancelled. My flight was on time👍

Cons: "They got our bag out of the plane and then lost it, had no earphones whatsoever."
Pros: "Can you guys call me at 661) 573-5194"
Cons: "661)573-5194"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Didn’t have any options for drinks for purchase. Had one beer for sale and it was room temp"
Pros: "Didn’t have to pay for our carry on bags where we did have to pay ridiculous 38$ us for one of our carry on because it was slightly too big"
Cons: "Scolded by check in agent for being late, when there was well enough time to make it if plane was on time. It was actually 30 min late, so it was totally unnecessary. Forced to check our bags but they did make the transfer and picked up fast at Cusco."
Pros: "Crew were amazing, always helpful."
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight should be not delay.. I paid money for been late...45 dollars they don’t appreciate loyalty"
Cons: "The time it took to open the door upon arrival"
Cons: "There was no free food."
Pros: "Flight was on time; the plane was clean and well-lit - it actually looked new. Entertainment selection was also surprisingly filled with new movies. The headrest was also very comfortable."
Cons: "Not necessarily a critique, but I did find it very odd, and non-standard, that the all the overhead bins were closed during boarding. It gave the impression that they were all full, when in fact, they were all empty. Planes should have the overhead compartments all open until everyone is on board so people can see what space is available."
Pros: "the crew was not friendly on boarding, or during the trip. I like it when they great you and say welcome aboard."
Cons: "long long line at check in... long line at the TSA late getting to the gate. Flight left an hour late did not meet my connecting fight no help in SP no ground crew for directions. long long line at customs then long line to rebook flight had a 7 hour layover in SP before Rio."
Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"
Pros: "check in and boarding (mostly because it was empty). Flight attendants. timely flight"
Cons: "premium seats should be more comfortable as advertised. On line services (extremely poorly designed and disfunctional website)"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All the flight"
Pros: "On-time departure & arrival. Good landing."
Cons: "Crew not friendly or personable. No smiles. Minimal beverage service on a 3+ hour flight. Check in & boarding at Ushuaia was convoluted and slow."
Cons: "Awful service. Terrible food. The seats are so uncomfortable and the service rude."
Cons: "Everything was great. Maybe more modern movies if anything"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."
Pros: "the flight attendant were very kind"
Cons: "They should get more modern airplanes with personal TV."
Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Only give you water for free"
Cons: "Aeronave muito velha, parecia que ia desmontar no ar."
Pros: "Aircraft was superb."
Cons: "Communication arr as y was too busy. Too much going on around me."
Pros: "it was a very nice and pleasant trip!"
Cons: "Hidden baggage fees. Extra fee to check in a bag was not disclosed at the moment I purchased my ticket. This airline doesn't even provide water to passengers. It's as stingy as it gets among all other airlines I've flow and value for money is poor."
Pros: "We had 3 high-school classes that traveled with us and the crew managed them extremely well (especially Luis) and made that trip unforgettable and most entertaining."
Cons: "Breakfast food was really bad; dinner food was between mediocre and ok."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I slept most of the flight."
Pros: "Great Staff. Beautiful plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving Miami and then some more arriving in Bogota. I understand this isnt the airline's fault"
Pros: "23kg (50lb) luggage INCLUDED in the price of the ticket. Free drinks and a snack!! It's like flyingbused to be, fun!"
Cons: "No complaints at all!"
Pros: "Friendly crew Nice rate Very fast and friendly check in"
Cons: "Difficult to do web check-in Very expansive to make changes in the ticket"
Cons: "When my husband and I arrived to Lima airport 2,5 hours before our scheduled flight, we could not check in because flight was overbooked? There was a seat for one of us (we overheard same conversation at counter next to our - 2 passengers, one available seat)... Explanation was they had technical problems with original plane and they had to replace it with smaller one and everybody else used online checkin in last 48 hours...Everybody else used online checkin?! Is that the rule? Last 48 h of my trip in Peru i did not have internet access, but if it's the only way to get your seat, you paid for months in advance, then I would find some solution. At the end, staying persistent in our request,we were on the scheduled flight (some "miracle" happened and we got 2 seats, next to each other, as same as couple from counter next to us)"
Cons: "Flightwas canceled and customer service was horrible through the entire experience."
Pros: "Cumplimiento fe horarios"
Cons: "Cambiaron el aeronave y aeropuerto."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. Attendants seemed to care equally about being welcoming and timely."
Pros: "The manner in which they treated handicapped travelers"
Pros: "Glad to have the pillow and blanket. Plane was clean and new. Really appreciate the luggage bins now allow standing up in the middle seat."
Cons: "Food was not as good as other LAN flights I've been on. No fruit in the fruit high season."
Pros: "I flew from Baltimore to Miami to Bogotá with zero issues. I am a musician and was traveling with my guitar, nobody hassled me and there was adequate space. The only issue was in Bogotá for my return flight. After struggling with the LATAM kiosk machine I was told by a LATAM ticket agent that flights from Bogotá to Miami are through American Airlines. Luckily a very nice American Airline agent accompanied me back to LATAM and convinced them my flight was with LATAM. Everything else was simple and easy!"
Pros: "No podría decir que me gustó nada"
Cons: "Mi primera experiencia en Latam no fue nada buena, mi vuelo latam2005 de lima-cusco el día 3/10/16 se retrasó por 2 horas debido a un supuesto mantenimiento de ultima imprevisto, creo que son cosas que deben detectarse antes para hacer un cambio de avión y no hacer al pasajero perder su tiempo...el 2do vuelo de cusco-lima Latam 2020 día 6-10-16 también se retrasó con 1 hora debido a que viajaban demasiadas personas y necesitaban voluntarios para viajar en el próximo vuelo. La verdad no creo volver a viajar con Latam."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff . No delays , always on time . Pilot is handsome too"
Cons: "Magazines are in Spanish language mostly :("
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Worst customer service I have ever experienced!"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, and the meals where good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hs. which happens, but still...not the best wat to start. The in flight entertainment was only available to those who had a smartphone, tablet or laptop (otherwise there was 1 screen overhead, every other 4/5 rows of seats, playing 1 movie) the problem was then, if I wanted to watch something I would have to drain my phone's battery, and there are no USB ports to recharge, so by the time we land I'd have no mean of communication, that didnt sit well with me."
Cons: "no breakfast"
Pros: "Great seevice, grear plane, great entertainment"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The ride was good, the view of the Andes was great"
Cons: "To my knowledge, the passengers were not told that the plane would be delayed for another 2 hours because they had to get a new plane - 30 mins after the flight was supposed to board. It was ridiculous, then it took 15 mins for us to be able to get out the plane after we landed in Santiago. Overall, boarding was very disorganized and ruined my general schedule after arrival into the country."
Pros: "On board services were good as usual. Delayed was reported 1 day ahead. My 4 y/o son was invited to the pilot cabin."
Cons: "After being notified about the delay, airline website didn't work for schedule change, and had to spend 1 hour on the phone to make it. LAN makes great effort in promoting IFE app, but it seldom worked on board."

The flight was super packed and most of us had to put our carry on on a overhead department that was extremally far from where we were sitting and on top of that, there was no Wi-Fi through the whole flight on a 8h flight and I had a work deadline to work on.

There is no food being served at Gol due to COVID situation. Which is understandable but still disappointed because others airlines are offering.

Late

Terrible airline. Completely disorganized and incompetent check-in process. 2+ hour flight delay and total lack of communication by their staff to the passengers. I missed my connecting flight as a result and was forced to reroute to Panama through Copa airlines in order to return to Bogotá, which took almost 10 extra hours. I would never fly GOL again.

Cons: "I never got to fly !!! I was flying to Rio de Janeiro from USA and my flight got canceled, so I never made it to Rio therefore I wasn’t able to fly to São Paulo . I called you guys and the airline to see what you could do for me . Very bad customer service considering there’s a pandemic. I understand certain flights are non refundable but during the circumstances you could’ve gave a voucher to use later but instead you tried to charge me more money to make changes when I didn’t even know when I was able to fly. To all this I lost my money and my chance to fly later . Never again I will buy anything from Kayak . You just lost a customer!!!"
Cons: "Include the luggage into the price of the ticket, Brazilian airliners often charge luggage separately."
Pros: "The crew was realy nice"
Pros: "Did us a favor and made check in in the counter"
Cons: "Food was pretty basic....no entertainment whatsoever kids were desperate"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To be denied my flight, and no refund."
Pros: "Aircraft look new and very clean."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. It would be better if they kept the flights on time specially this time of the year. They had several flights daily from São Paulo to Rio, no reason to be late. It would be better if the employees knew the rules about their work. Everything very disorganized from the gate number to the carry on allowed in the plane. I will never fly with Gol again."
Pros: "Nice new plane."
Cons: "Boarding process could be better"
Cons: "I had payed for an seat Gol + Conforto and one of the benefits was that the hand baggage compartment supposed to be exclusive to the people that bought this seat, so when I was entrancing into the aircraft one of the people of the GOl crew said that I’ll have to drop my baggage because the flight was full. I told that I had bought the Gol + Confort that have exclusive compartment to the hand baggage and I had showed my receive of the seat but they sayd that this benefits do not exist and took my baggage of me to drop off. It was an absurd and the worse thigh was that when I arrived at my seat, the exclusive space for my baggage was there available for my baggage and I had to drop off because the employee of the Gol didn’t know about this benefit of Gol + Confort seat and didn’t check out if really wasn’t space to my baggage"
Cons: "I had two USB chargers at my seat, but neither worked :("
Pros: "Crew was helpful and charming. 10 out of 10."
Cons: "Comfort is terrible. Seats are very small, space is terrible even in the "comfort" area."
Pros: "Plane"
Cons: "Time - delayed twice - missed connection"
Cons: "Check-in with Gol can be a nightmare. Long waits"
Cons: "I have not had my flight GRU - SSA because I'm stuck in Buenos Aires in Aerolíneas Argentinas Hell"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Pessoas super simpáticas e atenciosas. Assento com muito espaço para as pernas (eu estava na fileira com a porta de emergência)."
Cons: "Houve um atraso grande na saída. O tempo para a minha conexão no Rio ficou curto, então não consegui jantar no aeroporto."
Pros: "The space between sits in the airplane"
Cons: "The timing"
Pros: "Nothing about the airline Avoid if you can"
Cons: "Their customers service We were runnjngblate due to traffic but arrived with an hour before takeoff and they refused us to enter We had no bags to check in just hand luggage and they refused us to check in as their automatic check in service did not recognise our booking Total rubbish airline"
Cons: "The trip was awesome, Rio is a wonderful city, extremely hot but a beautiful city"
Cons: "More efficient check in. Waiting in line far too long at gate."
Cons: "Horrible experience. With a CONFIRMED seat with GOL airlines- and checking in two hours before flight- I was told flight was oversold and they did not have ANY seats on the plane. REBOOKED on flight from different airport two hours away! Awful!!!!!"
Pros: "poor food. extremely poor food."
Cons: "it would be expected to actual food(2 meals) on a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not remarkable at all. Terrible food."
Pros: "Thanks"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The check in and punctuality of boarding, take off and arrival was excellent. The flight was enjoyable. I would travel again."
Cons: "I didn’t like the snacks."
Pros: "Their boarding is more orderly than many Brazilian airlines."
Cons: "check in was difficult. Their app is terrible - check in was not allowed.. The website is worse - it couldn't link my locator number to my account. And the gate check in had an absurdly small number of kiosks and no one to help the confused passengers. Boarding was done on time and they kept the door open for 20 minutes after take off time with no announced reason for the delay."
Cons: "Extremely cramped. They ran out of certain drinks. Confusing boarding."
Pros: "Nice people once you get to an agent"
Cons: "Long lines of confused people trying to figure out which is the right one for them. Need more people giving orientation as people arrive to GRU airport."
Pros: "No horário... bagagens já estavam na esteira quando chegamos"
Pros: "Airplane was new."
Cons: "Punctuality (40min delay), bad service."
Pros: "Good landing"
Cons: "Messed up when looking for a seat ..many people from front door n many people from back door"
Pros: "fast flight, cofy seats!"
Pros: "Equipe atenciosa Sistema de entreterimento funcionou bem. Comida boa."
Pros: "I had a plesent flight with good food and good service both ways, the flight timing and connection was very good and the pricing of the jurnay was good. I will defently use the company the next time when I am traveling the same route later. Best regards Jan Christian Nygaard,"
Cons: "I have no comments to add hear, because everything went fine."
Pros: "el vuelo estuvo bastante bien"
Cons: "casi perdemos el vuelo porque no nos podian despachar las valijas, nadie hablaba ingles o español para que nos podemos hacer entender y terminamos pagando el doble por despachar el equipaje"
Cons: "The width of the seats were too small."
Pros: "Las instalaciones en perfecto estado todo en funcionamiento"
Cons: "Los sobrecargo un poco antipáticos deberían de colocar más aeromozas"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional"
Cons: "no entertainment. No leg room"
Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."
Pros: "In general is fine, but the same price of all the other airlines . I flew 3 hours and no tv! (and no meal) I'd fly Avianca next time: They all have your personal tv and gives you meal even for short flights."
Cons: "It was on time."
Cons: "Me gustaría que además de portugués e inglés, se hablara español, tener en cuenta que sale de Buenos Aires"
Cons: "Old plane. One hour of delay. No one explain the reason"
Cons: "They had only 4 people checking in the luggages and the lines was huge ... my wait in line was longer than my fight which I think it's absurd"
Pros: "The crew. They are very careful."
Cons: "They charge me by my baby stroller! They lost part of my bag. Never more I will travel by GOL."
Pros: "A equipe de bordo agradável, mas o check-in pessimo"
Pros: "legroom, boarding process."
Cons: "snacks were kinda sparce"
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to crew unavailability. Entertainment did not work due to connectivity issued during flight. No cookies nor snacks were served vs outbound flight where they offered 3 snacks!"
Pros: "The crew was good the set was not bad."
Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Cons: "More water, drinks. The food was absolutely horrible."
Pros: "Very courteous crew!"
Pros: "It was just a quick flight, but everything/everyone was efficient and made the process/flight no problem. Great experience."
Pros: "The crew was quite nice"
Cons: "Newark airport terminal C is totally a mess"
Pros: "We landed 45 minutes early!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but paid up for extra leg room"
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Pros: "The staff was kind and flight was smooth"
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. I could barely bend down to get my bag from under the seat in front of me and I'm tiny. I can just imagine how bigger people felt."
Cons: "I was not on this flight because my previous United flight was late! So I am having to sit all from 8:00 am till 8:25 pm in the airport. I am not happy."
Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Pros: "It was a good flight, no turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times by 15 minutes. Not sure why they could not tell us how long the flight would be delayed all at once. They track the flight and know when it will land, don’t they?"
Pros: "All the flight crew was incredibly attentive, particularly with those with special needs. From helping them to use the facilities to getting them little extras. It was a nice thing to see - especially in a such long (14+ hrs) flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system and service carts were quite outdated. There were no visible place to charge my phone. It takes away from the strong people service."
Pros: "United staff worked with me to book a round-about itinerary on a different airline that got me to my destination within 8 hours of the original flight. Progress announcements were made at regular, predictable intervals."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled an hour after scheduled takeoff due to mechanical issues. The plane was actually repaired, but the time it took to do so exceeded the flight crew's hours. I understand the practical implications, but in the moment it did feel maddeningly bureaucratic."
Cons: "Delayed due to a late crew member. Arrived 2 hours late into O'Hare making for a very tight connection. Other than the delay, all was fine."
Pros: "Quick flight, no complaints."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Flight okay"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that you had to pay for in flight entertainment. Too many offer it complimentary so this is a negative for me."
Pros: "The pasta was great."
Cons: "Halfway through the flight the entertainment froze and could no longer have access."
Pros: "Departure from Newark was delayed but the man at the desk, an entertaining guy, kept us informed."
Pros: "United Airlines for a change did a decent job flying back to LAS unlike our flight from BUF to EWR which got canceled and we had to drive to Newark which was not only disappointing but to witness customer service uncaring even more distressing."
Cons: "We may not choose UA for our family from now on. Quite a bit of confusion even when trying to reach customer service over phone, the hold time is 15 to 20 min?"
Cons: "Plane delayed due to maintenance at the hub airport of Newark and no gates upon arrival in DFW at midnight."
Pros: "Great crew and flight attendants, kept us informed of everything, very helpful and prompt on all questions and requests. Movie selection was impressive. Boarding was efficient and flight even left early. Surprisingly pleasant experience in economy for a long flight."
Cons: "An hour late which made me have to run to the next gate which is not pleasant for a 70 year old with a bum knee."
Cons: "I asked the service attendant when I checked my lagage to change my seat to an aile seat. Even though there weren't anybody awaiting in line she could not be bothered, she got rid of me and asked me to do that at the gatw. By the time the gate opened there weren't any ailel seats. The service people are trained to be rude and treat all passagers as slaves. I would not fly United if I will have a different opinion."
Pros: "We arrived safely at PDX"
Cons: "We left 3 hrs late, arrived very late at night, I did not get home until 2 a.m. There was no apology. There were no plugs for computers in the back of the plane and I got stuck between a fat person to my left and a fat person in front of me who leaned their seat back as far as possible. It was hideous."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 5:30 did not depart until around 7:20!!! Had to sit on plane for almost 2 hrs!! We were NOT OFFERED anything to drink Not even water!! Jet Blue would NEVER be neglectful, they are very service oriented. Plane was full & 2 babies on board one was fussy crying at times. It was s nightmare!! I was exhausted from traveling to NYC & Philly! & the delay & lack of service was AWFUL!! Could not watch TV, bc It either connects to phone, I could not connect it or I think you had to pay! Unheard of!!!I love to watch CNN, MSNBC & Fox it makes the time fly!! Hopefully will Never have to fly United Again"
Pros: "It was nice to get free wine on the flight. Had I know what I was about to endure I likely would have had more. Honestly. I am uncertain how you can stay in business."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold and the excuse of a blanket is really insulting to be warm enough to sleep. The video screen was tiny and grainy. Every time the PA system was used it buzzed so whatever was being said wasn't comprehend-able. The biggest complaint was the seating room. I understand that you want to get people into more legroom seats but honestly there should be a regulation for the inhumane way you treated those of us that did not ante up more! I thought I alone have these opinions but once you get me back home, you loose my business forever. I will take my Transatlantic flights every six weeks elsewhere."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "It took pass our departure time to get people onto the plane, the plane was super delayed 8:25 turned into a little over 10, and I was super uncomfortable the whole flight. Spent the majority of my day in the airport just waiting on this flight."
Cons: "United sent out a series of delayed flight communications times that all contradicted each other. Flight updates did not give me adequate time to arrange my plans to accommodate their sporadic updates for fliget 4132, resulting in me missing my flight after paying a $95 dollar cab fare. May 1, 2017 United failed in my eyes of a loyal customer."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours because they were waiting on an aircraft, which happens but no one to the time to explain or apologize even when asked. An apology goes a long way when you are stuck in an airport with every restaurant closing and you're hungry and tired. Definitely only flying delta or southwest from now on."
Pros: "That small propeller plane was an exciting experience!"
Cons: "The airline failed to notify us of the flight cancellation. After figuring it out on my own I suffered great inconvenience because had I been notified on time I could have weighed out my alternatives."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Crowded"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled after being delayed a few times. I was offered to be on standby on flights that's were overbooked the next day. The closest airport was 2 hours away with a different airline."
Cons: "Not enough space"
Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It's united."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Flight was as smooth as glass; great on time for departure and arrival."
Cons: "Did not give senior citizens who needed it any extra time to board; only disabled people. Free snack portion was extra stingy. Other airlines we fly moffer more than one tiny package! One of our party had a seat (aisle) that he could not move in once seated. Free entertainment was very stingy! Other airlines offer much more free entertainment in the way of TV."
Pros: "Had a great night sleep despite it being delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight got into LA and 2:00am but overall the service was good"
Cons: "without notice, plane made significant shift ..about 70 degrees..... Passengers began to scream. after about 5-10 minutes, pilot announces we were 10 miles away from plane in front of us and got caught in its tail wind. I was never so frightened on an airplane as this flight."
Pros: "didn't crash"
Cons: "the plane started while there apparently was a hydraulic problem which made them decide to turn around right before the Atlantic and fly back all the way to New York in a plane that shouldn't have taken off in the first place. Flight eventually got cancelled."
Pros: "More luggage storage (overhead and under the seats) on this international flight than on domestic. Most everything else was as expected."
Cons: "The toilets smelled and were messy a few hours into it. (I was on a Korean Airlines flight recently and their toilets were always clean and nice!). The crew were mostly efficient and worked well together BUT only one (out of the 4 or 5 in our section) smiled at passengers and looked like she was actually enjoying her job. One blanket wasn't cleaned well enough."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic ! My daughter was anxious during some unexpected turbulence and she was very supportive . Movies and entertainment were good . Food , acceptable."
Cons: "The space allotted per person is ridiculous. And I upgraded to extra leg room ... What extra legroom ??"
Cons: "I was early to my flight and sent to the wrong gate. When I received the notice that the gate had been changed, I had a long way to go to get to the correct gate and limited time. Since I have arthritis I was very inconvenienced making the gate."
