Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was quite bad"
Cons: "The flight from. JFK to Barcelona was delayed as well. Their computers were down in Atlanta. So everyone had to have their name hand typed into a computer when boarding. Then the pilot said that our bags are usually weighed and computerized for even distribution on the plane. That system was also down, so we sat on the runway waiting for that problem to be fixed. When we arrived at Barcelona, I unpacked and discovered a jacket and pants in my luggage were wet. The only place that could have happened was at JfK during their rain storm and the luggage weight issue."

Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."
Pros: "The crew members were so kind and friendly. I actually did feel more at ease and made my journey more enjoyable.

The offerings of movies and TV were excellent and extensive."

Pros: "Nice and helpful crew, fast service."
Cons: "The food was not good, the breakfast was tiny. Who wants a sweet muffin for breakfast!?! It was a very shaky flight. We sat in the back rows which might have done things worse. Not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Breakfast was quite good, rest of the food was maximum average like on the other Delta flights I flew on this travel."

Cons: "Food was o.k., but not great"

Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Pros: "I have no complaints. Not on"
Cons: "My seat ,the distance to get to the gate, The wheelchair l No window The distance I had it walk to get to my seat I was told this was the row behind the break after the exit row. I was not I’ve been with you before and have not any of these problems No more"
Cons: "Wouldn't let us check in til right before so our family was split all over the plane"
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."

Cons: "A little chaotic at boarding time"

Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Everything is good except our lunch as described below."
Cons: "They ran out of chicken breast in our lunch packages, so the stewardess went back to get it. After 10 minutes she still did not show up, we turned on the help light, and still no one came. Finally she passed by and we reminded her the 2 chicken breast lunch packs, she said : "Sorry, I've forgotten about them" and ran back to get them for us."
Cons: "Terrible baggage check and security lines (even Pre-Check!) at JFK Teeminal 1 (AirFrance)."
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."
Cons: "Cramped seats and the food wasn't that great. Plus final meal was served late which lead to quick eating and feeling rushed."
Pros: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"
Pros: "I had a great seat (exit row) with lots of legroom. They provided a free breakfast, and it was actually pretty good. A few hours later i was hungry and tried to buy some food but the cabin crew just gave my another breakfast item. The flight arrived on time, and the luggage was delivered a few minutes after I arrived at the baggage area."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a very good experience."
Cons: "they charge 300$ extra for a 14 year old child and dont give any service for the payment, they say it is to bring the child on and off the plane even though he can travel alone and has done it many times with other air lines. drive the parents uo the wall, make them wait endless time, and then they comlaine that thay have no time tofor the child and leave him standing with out even letting him to seat with the other air lines a child of 12 can travel alone."
Pros: "Lots of great food n free new movies! Crew was polite and on top of their stuff :)"
Cons: "Seats were cramped, very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The gate for the connecting flight from NY to Rome wasn't posted at the terminal or available via the Delta aps. The Kayak AP didn't have it either. I found out late that it was practially at a different airport. With less than an hour I had to take a bus to a different terminal, walk through, exit onto the street, cross the street and walk down the block to a different terminal. Then I had to re-enter through security (where the line was wrapped back to the front doors). Had the flight not been delayed for mechanical issues I would have missed it. My flights were purchased through Delta. If Delta uses different airlines they should post gate information on their web sites."
Pros: "Flew in past no problem this trip seats were very close when person in front reclined his chair it touched my knees. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Not enough leg room, knees hurt difficult to sleep. Also booked flight 3 months in advance so we could sit together as family. At gate they put my husband 20 rows separate from us. Surprised by this, I thought Delta was a better airline. Staff on plane was courteous and worked hard for entire trip."
Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"
Pros: "The meal and service were excellent. The cabin crew was very attentive. They tried multiple times to fix the in flight entertainment when it stopped working. (Note: this flight was operated by Air France)."
Cons: "The economy seats were a tad small for someone that is 6'3" (my knee hit the seat in front of me). Also the inflight entertainment stopped working properly halfway through the flight."
Cons: "food made me sick, the seat wouldn't move back, the screen for the "entertainment" was out of focus"
Pros: "The customer service was great. Due to it being winter flights are expected to be delayed, Delta kept on sending me updates via text so there was no surprises when I arrived at the airport."
Pros: "Flight delayed every 15 mins for hours then finally canceled. Delta did nothing to assist. Spent 12 hrs at JFK and Missed Christmas with family."
Cons: "There was no dinner service in first class!"
Cons: "They didn't even get me to Philadelphia they delayed the flight for 6 hours then cancelled it offered to rebook me the next day and $15 compensation when i declined. $15 for pretty much ruining my Christmas nice job delta never again"

Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Pros: "The crew was great. The plane was clean. Both flights were on time and went very well."
Cons: "The one thing I must say could be better is limiting people to one carry on bag. There were a few people that held up the boarding process because they had more than one bag and they were trying to find a open slot in the overhead compartment."
Pros: "Crew was great from checking in to the flight attendant and cockpit."
Pros: "very organized boarding process"
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "The crew barrels down the isle with the cart on am already cramped plane. LAX construction consistently causes ridiculous waits on the tarmac after landing. The deplaning process was super slow."
Cons: "The landing was very rough from Nashville to Dallas"
Pros: "I got to converse with the pilots before getting on board, and they were super awesome guys. Flight attendants were attentive and checked in frequently enough."
Cons: "All of group 9 had to check bags on a flight that was already delayed and arriving after 1am."
Cons: "Didn’t get my whole can of soda and pretzels are cardboard."
Pros: "Embarrassed to say but there wasn’t one thing I enjoyed about this trip. I felt like I down graded to Spirit or Frontier Airlines. The flight was terribly hot, delayed multiple times coming and going. Given, I paid for priority round trip, I was delayed to Main boarding and seated in 7A."
Cons: "Adjustments to the above statement. In addition to my next travels plans, I’d like to be seated in First class. My next travel dates with AA are 06/27/2019-07/05/2019. Please feel to contact me directly email@example.com"

Cons: "I was stranded on the runway for nearly 2 hours no air it was awful!!!!"
Pros: "That's it."
Pros: "Friendly crew. efficient."

Pros: "Well done again!"
Pros: "Everything lined up perfectly"
Pros: "Everything ran on time, which was surprising because I've heard horror stories, but I was surprised. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The landing was ROUGH!"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. By the time groups 5&6 boarded the first groups had not finished and there were no longer any lines to control the crowd, just people trying to get on board to assure overhead cabin space."
Cons: "Late late late"
Pros: "The flight to LA was fine, but the screen shot of the flight details didn't match what I purchased with a return date a day sooner. American Airlines blames Alaska airlines and they blame Kayak.. it's a blame game that only looks good for everyone but the consumer!"
Cons: "5hrs in LAX due to flight change without notification.. American Told us to go see Alaskan vise versa, but the conclusion was no seats were even available for the flight that was changed a day earlier.. Alaska Airlines solution: 2 additional days of travel and $700 per ticket x4 tickets. Finally after 5 hours of trying to figure it out some resolution to the mistake $500+ with additional stops. Ridiculous to say the least, I had to pay for their mistake"
Pros: "I got an upgrade which was nice. The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Ran out of popcorn but really nothing"
Cons: "Not enough staff at the airport to check in all passengers for early departures"

Cons: "Bag of pretzels to eat. Just so cheap"

Cons: "Had to change flight again because I would not have made my connection. Also paying for wifi that barley worked!"
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were amazing and went above and beyond."
Cons: "Okay, but flight was delayed."
Cons: "The flight attendant continued to serve alcohol to passengers (employees of TomKats catering - they screamed it throughout the flight) that were drunk and belligerent. Her poor judgement, and their complete lack of control, made the flight miserable."
Cons: "Took off 30 mins late because of work form not being signed off???"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Had to find an alternative way to get home"
Cons: "Still at the Dam airport,7hr wait is a pain in the back!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The Crew was really kind!"
Cons: "We left over 1.5 hours late, and they told me I would make my connection. The crew said they usually wait for connections if they are that close. I missed it by 5 mins."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Our flight to Nashville AND our flight back to Dallas were both delayed due to "maintenance". Each time was a delay of a couple of hours causing us to miss both of our original layover flights. As a result, we missed TWO very important business meetings that ended up costing us over $10,000! We were unable to provide paychecks to employees! After spending 2 entire days sitting in the airport waiting, we were offered a "food voucher" for $30, were advised to go pick up our luggage first, but they failed to mention we would be unable to get back through DFW airport security just to eat!! We had to take a taxi back to our hotel for over $100 and they didn't offer help with that or anything else. This airline is the worst!!! Unless there is significant compensation offered, I will do anything and everything to destroy their reputation further. I'm in the marketing industry and am very capable of getting the word out to millions. American Airlines... 9/11...Never Forget."
Pros: "delayed at both sides with very little announcements keeping us updated"
Cons: "The crew was rude"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "That the flight from Nashville to LA was delayed then cancelled due to maintenance issues and then my follow up flight to Dallas was delayed so I couldn't make the connecting flight from Dallas to LA, leaving me stuck in Dallas Fort Worth, to spend the night till a morning flight. Making me miss my first day on a new job!"
Pros: "Polaris is a great product"
Cons: "Crew still stuck in their old ways and don't deliver personal service, just wait your turn trolley service - when they spend most of the time chatting in the galley!!"
Pros: "Boarding efficient and latest films available. Price excellent."
Cons: "Food ."
Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."
Pros: "6 Feb from Newark to Delhi the Tv out of order no one is helping hand in the flight poor service. Only one thing is good that flight is well in time"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Never happened"
Pros: "The landing was perfect"
Pros: "Just about everything was perfect. lots of leg room in economy plus, seat next to me stayed empty, the meals were very taste. And the crew members were extremely professional. It was just a perfect experience."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable (for economy), service pleasant, food nothing special but fine, entertainment good. Boarding was efficient; there was a slight delay due to de-icing, but that's normal"
Cons: "It was impossible to download a boarding pass on either Lufthansa's website or any other (code share with United). Lufthansa gives you a number to call but they are open only 9-5 weekdays; when I called their regular office, I listened to a very annoying message routing for 15 minutes before hanging up. They have to work this out better, though I must say that at the United gate I could print it out easily at the machine, and the staff there was exceptionally helpful"
Pros: "Never been treated so disrespectful and like I was insignificant in allyour life!"
Pros: "Luggage was nowhere to be found for 12 hours. Had to go to the airport to pick up the next day. Luggage tracking web site is useless - it does not get updates at all. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
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."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food was OK, the entertainment was left to be desired. The comfort was just ok, but to be expected"
Pros: "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."
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "Headphone jack was broken Beer on the first flight was free, on the return cost 7 dollars"
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"
Cons: "Delayed, No food"
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"

Cons: "Seats seem to be getting smaller"
Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"
Pros: "I liked the new movies. Lots of movie selections. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight was a little bumpy at times, and flight was also delayed 1 hr."
Pros: "The seats were mostly comfortable (although extremely cramped), pillows and blankets were provided. I liked the one free thing offered; ability to follow the planes progress on my iPhone."
Cons: "All of the screens on the side of the cabin I sat in did not work so even if we chose to pay the ridiculous fees for content it wasn't an option. Charging $16 for internet is gouging to the extreme. Truthfully, I would choose to pay a little more for my ticket if I knew that United did not cram people in like sardines, provided good quality free internet, provided free video content (on consoles that worked), and provided a small snack (better than a little wafer)."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to Vegas!!!"
Cons: "Flight uncomfortable the staff wasn't all that pleasant nor attentive..."
Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"
Pros: "Movies on-demand over WIFI from smart phone using the United app. Friendly staff. Flight left late but landed on-time."
Cons: "Older airplane. In-seat entertainment not working (technical issue). Dinner was disappointing - one piece of chicken had an off taste, and the salad (quinoa?) had an odd mix of flavors."
Cons: "The departure monitor first said "on time," then "awaiting aircraft," with ever-later estimates for departure. There was little confidence that there would even be a plane."
Pros: "United made this a very comfortable flight! Boarding was quick, flight attendants (especially Adrian!) were very kind and went out of their way to make sure passengers were comfortable. I will definitely fly United for future international flights!"
Cons: "Lunch served before 11am EST, right after snack and drink service."
Pros: "I love the check in process!! You go to a kiosk and print your boarding pass and luggage tag and then just go and hand in your bag to an agent. Soooo easy. Then no ones in line forever. I was very impressed with the little extra amount of leg space that is not always on most planes. The flight wasn't very full and the crew was kind and generous with a couple of us wanting to switch our seats around. The tvs in the back of the headrest definitely kept me occupied watching New Girl. Overall, I was very comfortable and got to my destination without getting upset or angry once...which can't be said for all airlines."
Cons: "The security line for united in Newark was RIDICULOUS! It didn't take very long to get through...maybe 30-45 minutes (which I planned for) but the line snaked through two floors and wrapped through the check in area. It just looked incredibly daunting. But I realize that there isn't really much that can be done about that!"
Pros: "Customer service at Dulles was helpful"
Cons: "My trip was jacked up on both ends, starting with cancelled flight at 11 p.m. the night before, phone calls to United to change flights on the way out, and then maintenance on the way back home, which caused me to miss my connection in Dulles. Horrible accommodations, bad replacement flights, baggage service in Syracuse was dishonest and apathetic. All around bad."
Pros: "Super fast boarding and flight. Actually arrived an hour ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "United did not inform me original flight was cancelled. Kayak did Seats are cramped"
Cons: "Had to change plans because the septic line wasn't taken care of so the lines were frozen. The plane wasn't warmed up for us to board. We were told to exit the plane and go to another terminal but never explaned to take the shuttle . I took the Tran and had to go back through security and almost missed the plane. I was the last person to board. This was my 1st time traveling to that airport. No way to know that the Tran would require me to pass through security checkpoint again. Get better communication with people. The lady at the desk was just saying go to terminal A! They should have had a person directing all of us to go to the shuttle and bussed us to the terminal."
Cons: "The inside of the plane felt 50 years old. Completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Free wifi access"
Pros: "Flight attendants we good."
Cons: "It took 6 hours to get from Newark to Tampa, had to detour to refuel.. The weather on the ground seems decent but we were in so much turbulence for so long people were vomiting!! Worst flight experience ever and the pilot, thank God for his experience, was a bit sarcastic and said he wouldn't apologize for the bad experience bc it wasn't his fault."
Cons: "Ride was quite bumpy Couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "The staff on the plane was very nice. Good movie choices"
Cons: "There was mass chaos in Newark airport- the tea lines were out of control. I was at the airport super early. I had about 5 minutes to run to my gate. Unnecessary stress to travelers that day."
Pros: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Cons: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Pros: "Tight seating funky food"
Pros: "I was such bit cold on the flight. Other than that it was great"
Pros: "Late flight meant service was hurried and sub-par United's movies are pretty good actually"
Cons: "Flight was late and I missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "Flight West went without a hitch. (Compared to hortible flight east two weeks prior)"
Pros: "On time, food"
Cons: "Much less space then on a flight to US"
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Pros: "Plane was not crowded. Less claustrophobic. Bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Sound system. The PA blasting through ear phones is annoying."
