Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."
Pros: "Me atendieron muy bien , tuve un excelente viaje"

Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."

Cons: "No tv but understanding"
Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."

Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"

Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."

Pros: "Free tv"

Pros: "Getting to ATL"
Cons: "We boarded, they closed the door, told us to turn our phones off, acted like we were leaving, then informed us we had an hour delay. The flight attendants remarked that they couldn't hold us hostage and could get off if we want. The whole thing wasn't done properly."

Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"

Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Cons: "2 of my 4 bags, which I checked in, were broken during my travel."

Pros: "The crew was great. Flight attendant worked really hard to keep people moving and comfortable and safe. Pilots kept us informed."

Pros: "Food and staff are great"
Cons: "Small space between seats"
Pros: "Arrived early with great service which is most important when flying."
Cons: "Entertainment was not on par with competitors like Delta, especially on a long flight. Movies depended on downloading the gogo app before you boarded which most were not aware of until we were airborne."
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew!!"
Pros: "The announcements were clear and the captain did not mumble! Not sure what happened at the airport but we had issues with ground crew not coming to help park us. The captain made sure we were informed and it didn’t really add to much to our time."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."
Cons: "Small space once passenger in front of you lowers their seat back. Difficult to get in and out of my seat like that"
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Pros: "The seats seem to be shrinking. The flight was flawless."
Cons: "Tight seats, but I guess that is going to be the norm now."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "The flight was great--good food, good service, good entertainment, on time."
Cons: "They lost our luggage. Four people traveling together arrived in Phnom Penh, but our luggage didn't. It took almost 2 days to be reunited with our luggage."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and genuine"
Cons: "They didn’t load enough “for purchase” food. This was a six hour flight! They has no options left excepthummus and chips. This is second flight on American this year where they don’t supply the plane appropriately."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, comfortable and decent amount of leg room, good in-flight entertainment options and regular refreshments."
Cons: "We departed later than we were due to (possibly not American Airlines' fault) I wouldn't rate the food particularly highly but for plane food it is what you would expect!"
Pros: "Flight arrived safely"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "More than 3 hours late and missed a press conference with a US Senator"
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "On plane staff was attentive and very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight departure. New norm, being late?"
Pros: "Good crew Lucky to get better seats!"
Cons: "Poor Selection of entertainment not enough screen"
Pros: "Flight landed 40 minutes early"
Cons: "Due to early landing, no gate available. We literally rode all over the tarmac making room for other planes to maneuver around...and then did not get to a gate until 15 minutes past ORIGINAL arrival time. Also, I booked a premium seat, but there was no more leg room than any other seat. No meal/snack for purchase was even offered."
Pros: "Good seat back entertainment system. Plenty of movies I wanted to watch. Good to have an AC power outlet, too, to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "Charging more for some seats is a crappy business practice. Never enough room. Warmer than I'd like. Guy behind me kept stretching out his legs so much that he'd hit my feet unless I also stretched out."
Pros: "JAL is awesome overall. Super friendly crew. It was a short flight so no good was given but I did get little treats. There wasn't a tv to watch anything but I survived."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late departure, and arrival (no gate at LAX due to late arrival."
Pros: "All the staff were super friendly and warm. The customer service was top notch - beyond beyond amazing. The seats were comfortable. And the cups for our complimentary beverage weren't kids sized! I received a normal cup! The whole experience was a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "There was only one *tiny* negative... baggage. It would have exceeded my expectations if baggage was included instead of an additional fee. But this is wouldn't deter me from flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "The movie, game and music selections were good. However, my son was only able to connect to the Disney movies. Something was wrong with his monitor."
Cons: "Food was awful! Service was hit or miss. One flight attendant was very curt in asking about beverages. They seemed to be impatient. Also, comfort level was poor. I am only about 5'2" but I thought leg room space was tight."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Pros: "I had all three seats to myself! The plane temperature was good, the pilots were friendly and funny as a spoke to the passengers. The crew was attentive, and we arrived on time despite getting off to a late start. Plus the pilots did a great job on landing the plane."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I hated that my flight got delayed for over an hour and I was not informed of this delay. I had people waiting at the airport to pick me up so it would've been beneficial for me to know of the delay."
Pros: "Got home safely (eventually)"
Cons: "Left 3.5 hours late. Promised a connection the following morning and a hotel. Arrived at SFO only to be told that they would not pay for the hotel (or make arrangements) as the delay was weather related (since when is trying to leave BEFORE a typhoon hits and being LATE a weather related issue). They gave me the option of after a 13 hour flight at 11:30pm walking over to find AA staff in another terminal to argue for payment. I was too tired. After 1 million miles on AA I will avoid them now."
Pros: "Fit and finish of cabin interior was nice."
Cons: "I REALLY wish this flight had drop down footrests in coach. The video demonstration advises passengers to put up foot rests and tray tables upon approach. I wish there had been a foot rest - my back was killing me due to the inability to lift my knees and feet to take the pressure off my lower back."
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment interface was well-designed. The aircraft tracker is the best, the media selections were plentiful. Having the usb and headphone plugs next to the monitor is the best. Better than Virgin for sure. But strangely, you couldn't order from the food and drinks menu like you can from Virgin so it was just a video version of the menu card. Food was good."
Cons: "Someone destroyed a lavatory so we were short one for the flight and caused a 30 minute delay before take-off. The usual spiral happened: pilot flew into bad turbulence to make up time. No biggie."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The ticket counters are a joke. I could not check in the afternoon before my flight or the morning of on my phone, or at the ticket counters in the airport. I don't mind waiting in line but out of the 2.5 hours I waited in line about 30% of that time there was no attendant at the ticket counter, 50% of that time there was only one attendant who spent her time helping first class, and only 20% of the 2.5 hours I waited in line was there still only 2 attendants helping check people in. Because of this, I missed my flight."

One of the flight attendants slammed my arm rest down saying it needed to be down for take off but yet let the person beside me on an isle seat as well stay up. It was kind of rude how she did it I would have gladly lowered it and didn’t need her to do it. Other then that it was fine.

The main flight attendant sounded annoyed and rushed every time he came on intercom. Take off was very bumpy and it continued for several Minutes and no One on crew ever acknowledged it or told us to Expect it. It was very disconcerting. Staff felt unprofessional. No cheerful goodbyes when deplaning.

I like the fact y’all get me to my destination on time.

Flight was full. Flight crew was chippy and acted like they didn't want to be there. Lady at the boarding gate was same way.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I won't fly this airline again."

Cons: "it was very hard to hear the stewardess"
Pros: "Our plane was struck by lightning and therefore not able to fly, so we were deboarded and left to wait until a rescue flight could come in from Boston. Over the course of 4 hours, the crew kept us updated with every little change and were all very helpful! Once we were able to board the rescue plane, the crew handed out complimentary candy and drinks to help ease the wait times. Highly recommended!"
Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Seats were way to small for tall people with long legs..........."
Pros: "Smooth timely flight without incident."
Cons: "As retired military we were to have assigned seats since we purchased our tickets but somehow our return tickets separated us by 2 rows & opposite sides of plane. We were supposed to be in an isle seat & a window seat in the same side & row. We do appreciate all Allegiant Air does for the military. Wish all airlines did what they do."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "my Luggage did not make it to Reno."
Cons: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"
Pros: "Pretty empty flight so we were able to change seats. Good thing because my family wasn’t sitting together-$12 to pick or change seats ahead of time. Just be prepared and knowledgeable about this airline and other budget airlines and you will be satisfied. - pay for bags in advance, Try to weigh your checked bags before the airport, Bring snacks or drink on flight - otherwise you have to pay for it. Trenton and punta gorda airports are small, you have to walk to the plane. I love the small airports, no lines , easy parking!"
Cons: "Seats aren’t that comfortable and don’t recline even a bit, tray table is small."
Cons: "they charged me more money because i need alleges air . ap"
Pros: "Kids board first and you dont have to worry about seating if u have a young child. Also, the nonstop flight was so relaxing."
Cons: "Not much..."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable- they do not recline and the springs in the seat back pole into your back"
Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."
Pros: "On time and very efficient"
Pros: "New plane!"
Cons: "Boarded too early!"
Cons: "Cut my already short trip even shorter. I used this airline twice now, and both times I was delayed."
Pros: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."
Cons: "Nothing!!!"
Pros: "Flew 2 different legs with Allegiant, both of which were delayed for maintenance stuff. 2nd leg, we sat in the plane for an hour waiting for a maintenance guy, so my wife went to the bathroom. No toilet paper! When my wife asked about it, she was told "we won't be getting toilet paper for this flight." Inexpensive is one thing, but...dear lord!"
Pros: "More room in seats. Low prices Nice staff."
Cons: "NO DRINKS!! not even water is complementary!! NO SNACKS!! Not even pretzels!! WOW! You have to pay for your carry ons. You have to pay for your checked bag ($50!) You are only allowed 40# in your checked in without an additional fee."
Pros: "The price for the flight and the direct flight make it worthwhile."
Cons: "Boarding process was completely chaotic; they had two lines, one for people with paper boarding passes and one for those with electronic passes, but they just let everyone line up all at once which was way too crazy. It needs to be better organized."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Not enough options and what was available was pricey."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The plane was freezing the entire flight. Apparently, the crew tried to get the pilot to turn down the air, but it never happened. I hate how Allegiant nickel and dimes you. Not even a cup of water is free."
Pros: "The crew was awesome! They were friendly and very focused on their passengers. The plane was clean and the flight, itself was great. Worth flying from Oregon to So. Cal., will do again. Loved the flight times, and because of them, we were able to have half a day on departure day (Thursday 3:30 pm) to drop off dogs, pack and run errands and some work and arriving back home (Tuesday 9:46 am) gave us all day to work and get ready for the week."
Cons: "Plane did not board or leave on time, spent a lot of time waiting both on and off plane. I also did not like being hit with the taxes and fees at Alamo, after booking through Allegiant. Those should have been included in the initial payment, because I could have rented same vehicle for $40 less through Alamo website,(final payment w/ T&F's) That was a waste of your customer's money."
Pros: "direct flight to where i wanted to go was great initial fare was very low, add-ons added up though."
Cons: "flight out was handled by Miami Air, lost the money i spent on a seat. everything costs extra, including printing a boarding pass. the app wouldn't let me check in so i had to go to the desk. i had to show the person that the app told me to go the desk then she printed the pass for free."
Pros: "Very good flight crew. Cheerful. Nicely suggested a free adult beverage since we had the Allegiant credit card."
Cons: "Was an hour and half late"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No tv in seats"
Pros: "Price, plane interior lighting, comfy seats, large entertainment options"
Cons: "Main course- Spinach manicotti."
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "Everything was quick, organized, and on time. The flight attendant was the best, made sure I had snacks and drinks."
Cons: "My only real issue was that, upon checking in online, I was informed that my boarding pass would be emailed to me. I don't believe it ever was. I checked all of my various email folders, including spam, and saw nothing."
Pros: "A pleasant surprise when overbooked flight was announced was that I could give up seat on Chicago to LA flight and get a direct flight Chicago to San Francisco and still make my connection to Santa Rosa. A very nice perk. Everything comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything. Comfortable flight. Good flight attendents."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and prompt. Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Flight was to short."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Loved it."
Pros: "Flight was on time, clean, comfy."
Cons: "Media wasn't working on the seat screens."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No free food or entertainment service."
Pros: "The staff are really nice, they try to help to their best abilities."
Cons: "The only thing was that there were many loud children, there's no helping that."
Pros: "Great captain and crew."
Cons: "I prefer the entertainment on your own device."
Pros: "Despite all the restrictions, my wife and I were able to be seated together."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I was not aware that I was booking a seriously restricted flight, ie no carry on baggage, can't sit together, etc. This is the first time I experienced these kinds of restrictions on a major airline. I did not like the having to pay for checked baggage of a carry on. A bit too much."
Pros: "I booked a basic economy seat & ended up on a small plane, that was fully booked. It had 2 seats on either side of the aisle but it was surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was short so thankfully I didn't have to pay for entertainment. It's a loser move to make the customers pay for everything; luggage, food & entertainment on my international flights, I always go for the companies that try to make the passengers comfortable and I'm going to think the same way on my local flights in the future"
Cons: "I had to miss an extra day of work because of the delay coming back to Los Angeles. Thankful the Kayak app informed me of the delay in time to not go so early but once at the airport, my flight got delayed 2 more times."
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Before taking off, one of the flight attendants unplugged my power charger and threw it on the floor. The same flight attendant asked if I wanted anything to drink. After stating water please, she never came back with any drink at all. Mind you, I paid for 1st class. I guess that's how United treats their 1st class passengers. Never again"
Pros: "Upgraded to extra comfort seating."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed."
Cons: "The was delayed three times without explanation."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Cons: "On at least one leg of my trip both two and from my destination the flight was late. As if that wasn't bad enough, twice the plane was over sold and people had to be removed to stay and catch a later flight which in turn made the plane even later. Many people either had to run to catch their connection or missed it all together. Several of which had small children. I fly about half a dozen times a year and this was the worst of the year."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "I actually got bumped from this flight to one that went directly to my final destination of San Fransisco. What a great experience!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Cons: "our flight was delayed more than 2 hours due to weather. Of course, not a pleasure to have, after flying so far, but I appreciated how apologetic the crew and pilot was, under the circumstances"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
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"
Pros: "terrific cabin crew"
Cons: "antiquated and limited music selection"
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Pros: "Airline attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I sat in a window seat, yet had no window. I travelled with two other people, and none of us were able to sit together. The seats were more cramped than any other plane I had been on. The light above me was not even strong enough to illuminate the words of the book I was reading, so thankfully there was still some sunshine. There was also no in air entertainment, which I feel like is usually a standard on most planes nowadays."
Pros: "Crew were very professional"
Cons: "The wait to get to the gate was hard. After a 3 hour flight we had no gate as another plane took our assigned gate then another gate had a broken gangway so we had to use "air stairs" to depart"
Pros: "Got there on time, grabbed a seat from the counter, walked on the plane, sat down and 44 mins later I was in LA. Quick and easy"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, but once I got on I had a great flight!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that not only was my flight cancelled but so was its replacement with no explanation."
Cons: "Apparently flight crews are limited and even though our plane was ready to leave we had to wait for a crew member to arrive that was delayed at another airport which in turn delayed our flight."
Cons: "It would have been helpful if hanging a garment bag were available, which was the case on my return flights to DC on American Airlines."
Pros: "The price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"
Pros: "The space in between the row in front was above average. The extra space is appreciated. Gate agents were kind and helpful during the boarding process."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1 hour after landing. I know that wasn't the crews fault. But they could have given more frequent updates and at least told us what gate we were at so we could have a better idea when trying to frantically make our connections. Also the entertainment was pricey for a 5 hour flight that I paid good money for. I thinK basic movies should just be included in the fees"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the flight attendants were nice and accommodating, and the flight entertainment was first rate."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Timely flight at all stages of embarkation and debarkation plus the small fee for the tapas box was well worth my payment!"
Cons: "There should be some free tv"
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed and I was never told the reason.. There was no enough of the beverage I wanted to be given just one can of juice.."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were told multiple times it "wouldn't be much longer" until we got going...2 hours later we were still at the gate. The only thing done to make this time easier was to give all passengers free TV for the duration of the flight. Wow, thanks. I was lucky my layover was 2.5 hours so I just made my connection. Most other connecting passengers were not so lucky. Pay the extra money to take a better airline."
Pros: "It was my first time flying United Airlines and I was satisfied with the service. I would definitely recommend this airline. Everyone was very courteous and available to answer questions."
Pros: "Free wifi on board"
