Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. I never flew home. I missed my little Sister's graduation. :o("
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."

Cons: "The gates and waiting areas are like kennels. No order. No information on the flight board. Just don’t fly it. Don’t do it. Delayed flights. No information or confusing information from various crew. Don’t fly this airline. Unless you have days to kill and aren’t in a rush to go somewhere or get home. It is really awful."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed twice. No compensation for delays that resulted in hotel cancellations."
Cons: "the delays both from ottawa and to dc"
Cons: "The delays"
Cons: "Customer service was very poor I will never be flying .Porter Airlines again My flight was cancel I sat at the airport for 8 hours before I could get on a flight. Mind you this was after being rebooked for the next day with no notification. The security agents are the one who inform me of the cancellation. NOT PORTER ."
Cons: "Crew member was argumentative and not helpful"
Cons: "They delayed my flight many times and finally I gave up."
Cons: "Are flight was delayed 1 hr. Due to a issue at Newark, this would of been ok, except the gate manager announced it was due to low cloud ceiling and visiability. I'd think you would understand any one look to see the status of flights in Newark on their phone and see visibility was a few broken and visibility 10. So lying only puts distrust in paasangeners!"
Cons: "Air hostess were mean even with a empty plane. It was dirty and no one cleaned it."
Pros: "At least on time."
Cons: "Air craft was so old."
Pros: "Flights were on time, free wine and treats and very quiet efficient planes."
Cons: "Everything was great. There was a slight delay in Toronto and no announcement was made. That could be easily fixed."
Pros: "There were mechanical delays, so Porter gave an $8 voucher to spend in the airport, which was a nice touch since I had never received that from other airlines who also had mechanical delays. Porter was pretty smooth despite delays due to weather on the way back. Attendants were generous with the food servings. I love that this airline serves free wine."
Cons: "I liked everything."

Pros: "Free lounge, free drinks including wine, snacks, on time courteous and professional"

Cons: "The flight was delayed over twenty minutes and the gate changed."
Pros: "Timeliness and free drink and snack on plane and at airport. Our flight had some tech problem with plane and it was quickly dealt with. We had delay, but communication was good and delay was just and hour and half"
Cons: "As I was waiting at my gate for my flight, I notice that It's almost time to board the plane & there is no plane at my gate. I walk over the the lady's at the stand and ask if I'm at the right gate and this is when I'm told that my flight had been CANCELLED and no one thought to inform me. One of the ladies goes "You should have received an email" but I know that I'm not the only who was unaware of the flight cancellation as I found out later that 3 other people had been going through the same thing. On top of the terrible communication, once I finally got booked on the next flight out, I was sat beside the most obnoxiously loud & irritating person I have ever met. He was swearing and raising his voice the whole flight and the flight attendants completely ignored it. There was a small girl in front of me with her father and he tried to confront this man and tell him to lower his voice & still, the crew payed no mind. Also, I am an 18 year old girl flying by myself for the first time... This man kept poking me in the arm and leg trying to get my attention and was trying to get all this personal information out of me. This is harassment and if I had flown with a bigger airline, this dude would have been off the plane before it even took off. I was petrified the whole flight as he kept telling people that if the plane didn't take off in 30 seconds, it was going to CRASH. I had one of the worst anxiety attacks of my life & the whole situation was ignored by the crew. I WILL NEVER FLY WITH PORTER AGAIN."
Cons: "Though they have a lounge it was not in good shape. Trash cans overflowing, seat cushions filthy. I appreciate that they provide food for economy passengers in the lounge but, if you provide good in plastic containers you need someone to empty the trash-at the least."
Pros: "One of the most pleasant flights I ever had!"
Pros: "Comfortable experience. Porter Airport offered great city views of Toronto."
Pros: "Service was quick and easy."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I liked that there were free snack in the lounge and wine on the plane. The ticket agent was very helpful when the customer service phone line failed terrible. She saved me from writing in a scathing letter on how terrible my experience with customer service."
Cons: "I didn't like how my flight was delayed for 3 hours because of rain that wasn't in the area of where I was or going. FOR BOTH OF MY FLIGHTS! I didn't like how I was offered a $50 voucher for being diverted to Hamilton after all that time, which I was originally told that was good for a year and then found out it is only good for 6 months and non-transferable. Now I have a voucher I'm not gonna use in the specified time frame nor gan I give it to someone who frequents the airline."
Cons: "The plane is small and old. I was shocked that seat 15 is way down the aisle. Very nice helpful staff and excellent comfortable lounge."
Pros: "Free drink"
Cons: "Old dirty plane, very noisy, poorly maintained, late"
Pros: "Overall it was great"
Cons: "2 1\2 hours late on an 1 1/2 flight"
Cons: "This website did not issue the ticket prior to the flight departed so i had to buy a second ticket at the ticket counter at the airport. Meaning i need to haggle and argue to get a refund for one of the paid tickets."
Pros: "Thank god, I found a gentleman at a different counter to help me. The lady at the counter said "not my problem as I did not cancel your flight, its the airline" !!!! Totally unprofessional"
Cons: "I booked an emergency ticket in the morning for a late flight to get in to newark for my sister's surgery the next day. The flight got cancelled, no email sent to me even though service counter people kept saying that they did. I am at the airport in a long line with only one counter open and the rep not even bothering to help me. I am a 60 year old from another country and have knee problems. Thankfully someone took mercy on me and helped me out to catch another flight so I could leave. Its unfortunate that flight cancellations happen in such a way without making sure the passengers are all contacted and alternatives made for them. it is also unfortunate the airport only does porter airlines and there are no other flights that can be made available when flights get cancelled"
Pros: "Free snacks, drinks."
Cons: "Nearly 2 hour delay :("
Pros: "Service was very good. Air hostess was courteous"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Our takeoff was delayed 3.5 hours because the plane was 'too warm to board.' This meant that I was stranded in Billy Bishop airport, which is a very small airport without much to do, while waiting for updates. Updates typically consisted of, "We should be able to board in about 10-15 minutes once the plane cools down." and then we would wait another hour for an update. We were offered a $50 food voucher for the small cafe 5 minutes before the cafe closed up shop. We were also offered a $50 voucher on Porter Airlines, which is an airline I have never flown before and don't intend to fly again."
Pros: "Speed and chips"
Cons: "Newark airport...."
Pros: "The complimentary coffee and water were a nice touch; just a very civilised way of treating passengers. Your lounge is terrific; the view great. Pleasantly surprised by the fact that you offer complimentary spirits on your Toronto-NYC flight -- an astonishing outlier in North America!"
Cons: "REALLY don't like the fact that international passengers who aren't US or Canadian passport holders can't web check in and reserve seats online. Couldn't you at least allow us to reserve a seat, if not actually web check in in advance? That way we wouldn't get relegated to crappy, leftover seats after everyone else has had a go at them! Finding power plug outlets for laptops in your Toronto lounge is a challenge. Elderly people have to bend down, peer under chairs, if they're lucky to see an outlet. Please consider designing accessible outlets that don't require strenuous bending, and a larger number of them. Disappointed that you don't as yet have European and Southeast Asian airline frequent flier network tie-ups. Qantas is good, but limited."
Pros: "The service, crew, complimenatry snacks, and everything about flying with a non u.s. company is just great."
Pros: "Flight was on time and lounge in Toronto is great."
Cons: "The propeller machines somehow give the impression of not being exactly the latest in technology.."
Pros: "Price, Quality of refreshments, complementary alcohol, staff attitude. Billie Bishop airport is a gem - glad you fly there."
Cons: "Tickets are non-refundable."
Cons: "4 hour delay no information"
Pros: "Very rude behavior of the staff at the desk. Flight was 7 hours delayed and then canceled. And the staff were not able to give us updates. They were being rude."
Cons: "Ground staff should need more training how to treat passengers. They should show little respect towards their passengers."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled. Still not to Vancouver. Wasted a whole day traveling, about 19 hours due to delay, canceling and try to get rebooked. West Jet does not run on time."
Pros: "A flight is a flight, nothing to write home about - a mode of transportation."
Cons: "Weather and deviated disarrangements tainted our vacation."
Pros: "Crew and staff at gate fantastic. Accommodated me sitting with partner on both legs (booked flights separately)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very thankful my flight went smooth as I flew with my puppy."
Cons: "The flight was full and my carry-on had to be checked due to other passengers bringing oversized carry-on. The beverage service did not occur until 10 minutes before landing. Options were limited to water only. The flight was extremely rough and the pilot slammed the plane on landing."
Pros: "Our stewardess was amazing. Took very good care of us. My son was sick and made sure a wheelchair was available for him total take us to transportation. Made our trip. Thank you!!"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "More room"
Cons: "No entertainment service."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Pros: "No entertainment (short flight)"
Cons: "Check in was quick and efficient"
Pros: "It was smooth right from booking online uptil reaching destination"
Cons: "As it was an early morning flight I would suggest a better snack something like sandwich keeping in mind if giving option for veggie"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Should consider giving front seat to senior Snacks could have been better keeping in mind the flight time"
Pros: "My first experience with West jet very enjoyable i would recommend!"
Pros: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Tiny chairs"
Pros: "I would like to see more spacious and comfortable seating. They rest is inconsequential. Besides that, no complaints. Thank you."
Cons: "We did not like feeling cramped. This part of the world is breeding much bigger humans than before. Please make allowance for that. I had a tough time breathing...2 big guys side by side is a sorry sight in that limited space."
Cons: "Ridiculous baggage policy. Boarded among the first passengers in the last zone group to board the aircraft. All overhead bin space already gone. Sat with my knees up around my chin for whole flight. Very uncomfortable."
Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."
Cons: "We were told not to take the late flight to TO as Westjet would not hold the connecting flight (TO to Gatwick) for us. This meant our TUI connection in Gatwick to Chambery would have been wasted along with bus transfers. West jet did not offer us AC flights that were available to keep us near to our schedule. We ended up cancelling the Westjet flights and buying AC flights to Heathrow at a cost of $3300 + $300 taxi to gatwick + abandoned bus to Gatwick Westjet did offer us a flight on Sunday ! In the end, we are not sure if booking thru Kayak was part of the problem as Wesjet staff said ..... Oh you booked thru a 3rd party Comments ?"
Cons: "Everyrhing was great"
Cons: "Trip from Toronto to NYC should not be so long. Between boarding getting delayed to finding a gate in NY laguardia, it was just extremely exhausting."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Crazy delays into La Guardia from Toronto, worst flight experience of my life!!!"
Cons: "I had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."
Pros: "Soft voice of flight attendants with such an early flight."
Cons: "Paying for food. Paying for luggage. Movies in a loop, not on demand. Missed beginnings of all movies I watched."
Pros: "Really great attendants. Friendly and humorous."
Cons: "They took the tablets pretty early it felt. 45 minutes before we landed. But other than that, great experience!"
Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Very positive and smooth experience. Love the app and free wine!!!"
Cons: "None that I can think of. I recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and a plug for my phone"
Cons: "We were delayed ... was supposed to take off at 7:30 didn't take off until 9 .. I've sat on this plane longer than I was in the air"
Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"
Pros: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."
Pros: "Best WestJet flight ever!"
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Friendly crew, efficient"
Cons: "Delayed boarding."
Pros: "Reaching my destination"
Cons: "Wish the emails/alerts came sooner. I waz always in transit when i was told my flights had been delayed or cancelled. I wont blame people for weather but it was the most annoying trip i have yet to take. I dont mind dissapointment but please dont waste my time."
Pros: "They were very accommodating. I used the call back feature a few times. All agents were courteous and made it easy to complete transactions. Our family was travelling for my grandmother's funeral we called several times over the course of a few days to book for various family members."
Cons: "There was no communication/correspondence when the flight was delayed. They took contact numbers plus there was an email provided, yet nothing."
Pros: "It was a little tight seated in plus row but i should not complain because you don't get to sit beside anyone. Would like that they served tea since I was dying with a bad cold. Staff were professional and the head flight attendant took charge of the plane very professionally. I'll fly again with west jet because air Canada crew can be miserable."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 30 minutes"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "No issue at all"
Pros: "same as above."
Cons: "same as above."
Cons: "There was a delay that was weather related. The entertainment system was good, but old, and had some glitches."
Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "My boarding was no so good. However all went well."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, roomy seats, arrived on time."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great!"
Pros: "Punctual, smooth flight"
Cons: "No food, needs improvement"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Quick flight. Dlient Service in check-in was excellent, she went the extra mile to change my return flight to a more reasonable time."
Pros: "short pleasant experience"
Cons: "baggage check is always complicated .they make a big deal over small items"
Cons: "given that Air Canada's computer had crashed and flights were cancelled (including our own), the lack of information was astounding. Why, e.g., didn't anyone go along the queue handing out numbers so people could get food then reclaim their place in line? Why weren't we told, ditto, how long this mess would take to clear up? why weren't we offered o/n stays, etc, etc. Could have done an awful lot better if some manager had spent two minutes thinking!!"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Flight was smooth once airborne"
Cons: "Delayed Flight Seats seemed very small for an Air Canada Plane"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Cons: "Not impressed with luggage fees that were not indicate but hidden in price - and all the nickle and diming on every little thing.. ruins the overall experience"
Cons: "Our luggage didn't scan in the system so we couldn't go to the gate until it was found & scanned in the system. Fortunately we were early so this wasn't an issue but kept us waiting at "step 2" until an actual photo could be found. We also had a delay after boarding while they changed a tire. It all worked out ok."
Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "It was a short flight and I shared my seating with average weight people. The crew members and the pilots were very informative."
Cons: "During a short flight there is not much to experimented and less to comment."
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "A 12 hour delay is not okay. The hotel comp was nice but they split my group of 5 into different hotels. The breakfast voucher did not work. The dinner voucher barely covered the cost at the designated restaurant. Customer service was extremely unaccomadating."
Cons: "Very poor communication and co-ordination when flight was delayed and then cancelled. Rebooking was only available via the phone, even when at the airport, with a 45 minute hold time. Everyone kept passing the buck to another, and no supervisors were around. Terrible customer service!"
Cons: "The service"
Pros: "Leaving and never coming back!"
Cons: "Psychotic and delusional crew that take bad customer service to a whole new level!"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Cons: "They could have rushed more to get us off the ground quicker."
Pros: "Efficient. tv on back of screen didn't work"
Cons: "The announcement about turbulence were to much. Could have been way more subtle or shorter"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Pros: "Originally this flight was scheduled to be an 1hr and 17minute flight. It only took 55 minutes from gate to gate. Flight attendant was really friendly, overall a very great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft that was servicing this route was tiny and at times I found it difficult to stand up properly without hitting my head. There was a little chop upon takeoff but besides that everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Captain gave us regular updates"
Cons: "LGA closed for wind. We sat on taxi road for 2 hours. Crew could have served more than water while we waited. No AirCanada's fault but crew should have a plan to serve the snacks/ food if we are sitting for two hours and the total flight time is 1.5 hours."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Cons: "The flight was originally delayed by 30 minutes.. reasonable considering the high winds in both NYC and Toronto. Things started going wrong after we boarded the airplane and then were told the flight crew had not yet arrived from LGA. There is simply no excuse for airlines not keeping sufficient standby crew capacity to minimize these issues. This is a clear case of the airline under staffing at the expense of its customers. By the time the flight crew arrived we were just barely able to make the 8:45 wheels up time for our clearance. The flight to LGA was uneventful until we landed. We were then told our gate was occupied by another plane, a delay that was initially forecast to be a few minutes turned into what seemed to be close to an hour. As a result, I arrived home to my Manhattan apartment at least two hours later than I should have. Flight delays happen, I accept them when they are for reasons that cant be avoided... I look for other airlines (such as united) when they occur for entirely preventable reasons and result in back pain from being trapped in an airline seat for 3+ hours instead of the 1hr 15 or so I should have been stuck in the seat."
Pros: "Decent service."
Cons: "I paid 100$ for my seat, for more leg room. It happened that the seat next to me was unoccupied. I thought it would give me an opportunity to stretch out a bit to sleep on the Atlantic crossing. Another passenger's tv didn't work so one of the stewardess told him he could sit next to me. He got more leg room for free. I was cramped and could not sleep because of muscle spasm. The Legal age made it more comfortable but it is not worth 100$"
Pros: "Direct service is nice! Clearing customs in Ottawa makes life easier."
Cons: "Buttery pretzels in both directions that are way too buttery. Crew is never overly happy to be there."
Pros: "I was very kindly provided an upgrade and seat beside was empty, it was a great flight. thank you!"
Cons: "i was not able to travel with my spouse. the seat allocation process did not allow me to set this up prior to the flight or at the airport"
Pros: "Once, on board everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not being made aware of the real departure time ahead of time."
Pros: "The complimentary snack"
Cons: "That my seats were not together"
Pros: "Replacement flight was fine but third time original flight in early afternoon to LGA cancelled in the last eighteen months."
Cons: "Flight ac714 was cancelled. Put on AC716 which put me at LGA in evening rush hour."
Pros: "Everything was as expected"
Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"
Pros: "Everything was handled very efficiently, and although it was a commuter jet it was more comfortable than those I've flown on domestically."
Pros: "I arrived home safely. I needed"
Cons: "I needed assistance as I have a broken ankle. Waited, waited and waited some more for assistance. Handed off 5 times until I got to the gate. Given a seat first in the exit row and naturally had to have that changed as I could not assist others. Placed even further back in the plane. It took the full three hours plus since deplaning the Austrian Air flight to get to the Air Canada gate."
Cons: "When we checked in we were told everything was on time. When we should have been boarding, we were told there was no pilot. That took just over an hour to rectify. When we finally landed at Lauderdale, we were told there was no gate - surely they would have known this when we took off from Ottawa!? We sat waiting for at least 45 minutes before having access to the gate. Beyond frustrating when we were already late and inconvienced!"
Cons: "It's my 3rd time flying with this airline, and all 3 flights were delayed without a decent reason."
Cons: "Delayed flight rough landing"
Pros: "Comfort, service, flexibility"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was consistently nicer than he needed to be with all the passengers, and I think this was after a tough day."
Cons: "It was a very hot flight"
Pros: "Crew were great and friendly."
Cons: "Delayed flight. My 3rd delayed flight with Air Canada since July."
Pros: "Free wine with hot meal provided."
Cons: "Cramped seating so could not sleep on overnight flight. Person in front of me had seat reclined , should be banned with such tight seating."
Cons: "Don't understand why we were forced to board the plane even though it was clear we couldn't fly out. Sitting in the plane for 3 hours was not fun considering the flight itself is 1 hr!"
Pros: "Plane/equipment condition"
Cons: "The Aur Canada ticket counter and gate agents in Toronto are consistently the rudest employees in the travel industry"
Cons: "Both fights were not on time."
Cons: "Baggage issues!"
Pros: "It was a good flight. Crew was awesome. I couldn't get comfortable in seat but all in all good flight."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "That United waited 3 hours before they decided to use another plane when they new realistically the one we were suppose to board would never be fixed in time! Total waste of our time!"
Pros: "Plane is clean and on time"
Cons: "Only one working restroom for people on plane for over four hours. Full flight."
Pros: "Cordial airline."
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "They charged for a snak but gave free nuts away. We had to purchase any sort of movies for $9. Just a rip off I rather fly with American Airlines next time!"
Pros: "Spacious searsing"
Cons: "Late timings and no proper estimation of delay time. The timings are changing for every half an hour. Which wasted lot of hours to passengers."
Pros: "The transparency of the pilot as to what was causing all of fhe delays."
Cons: "The 4 hour delay. First, the plane was running late from San Francisco (about 2 hours late). The second delay was due to someone putting way too much fuel in the plane so we had to wait for the excess fuel to be removed. Then the flight attendants ended their shift so we had to wait for another crew that was flying in from Denver. This involved us having to remove all of our things from the overhead bin and get off the plane and re-board about an hour and half later. I was supposed to make it to Dallas at 8:45 and instead didn't make it until after 12:30. It was extremely inconvenient and unpleasant. I have not experienced such a nightmare before with any previous airlines."
Cons: "Still stuck on th tarmac an hour and a half after landing in Dallas because of lightning weather conditions and no ground crew to bring the plane in. Can't they wear a rubber suit or something??"
Cons: "Plane delayed due to maintenance at the hub airport of Newark and no gates upon arrival in DFW at midnight."
Pros: "The flight was very nice the Captain did an awesome job flying and the flight was awesome seeing the fireworks from the sky."
Cons: "I had to run to customs to pass by then I had to run to luggage check in run to the shuttle to catch to terminal hurry through security and then my luggage is still not found or waiting to land in Dallas from Chicago."
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized. Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines. Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Pros: "Entertainment was available even for a very small Duration of flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours for crew to come from another city that was 1 hr away, when they can just have someone from that city to work plane."
Pros: "I traveled for 2 weeks, took 7 planes. This was the single worst flight of the entire trip. The attendants were not very friendly but the plane was disgustingly dirty. Trash was left from previous flight and the restroom was filthy."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Don't remember. Was asleep"
Cons: "There was no type of entertainment and the plane was small. I thought it would have been bigger"

Cons: "The cabin was very hot and uncomfortable. The crew said they were working on cooling it down. We sat in very hot humid environment for about 15 min. Then they decide to turn the air on full blast right before departure. So they had the air off the whole time for what? To save money? We all were sweating. So ridiculous."

Cons: "It really was a positive experience. Like I said, the flight was delayed 45 minutes, but it really wasn't bad at all."
Cons: "Horrible flight delayed an hour and the. Waiting an hour for my bag to learn it didn't make flight even tho I was at ther airport 2 hours before flight left. They said couldn't deliver it until the next day so had to go back to the airport to get my bag! Horrible experience !"

I will never ever fly with United ever again. I am flying from American Airles today at 1130am. I am still in New Jersey horrible Kayak. Horrible. They should pay for my first night at my hotel at least."
Cons: "I already wrote what I had to write. 4 delays and then cancellation! Are you kidding me? Had itinerary planned for Friday Night and that got ruined because of United Airlines stupid logistics. I will never fly United! Give me a voucher ! Give me something. Aren't even offering a cab for me to take from Jersey to LaGuardia. It's your fault people. Enough said."
Pros: "On time and early for the second"
Pros: "Boarded original plane right on time."
