Pros: "seat comfortable"
Cons: "ticket price"
Pros: "The airplane was very nice with great space between seats and the crew was nice."
Cons: "During boarding procedure, the gate used did not support the number of passengers and was a little bit messy"
Pros: "Plane was good, plane staff were good."
Cons: "Forced to move seat (whole row of us) as plane was taxiing to the runway. Just managed to squeeze bag into overhead bin, sit down, and buckle in before we took off. Don't know why we had to move - not explained. Ended up with a middle seat rather than my booked window seat. There was a curfew in Bogota, which caused the plane from Panama to Bogota to be late, thus ensuring I missed my connection. Rather than being put on the next plane, I was forced to miss not only my original one, but 2 further ones. So rather than arrive, as scheduled, at 15:15 I will arrive over 9 hours later, after midnight. Could have been handled better by Avianca."
Pros: "Never again with Avianca"
Cons: "Never again with Avianca"
Cons: "Old plane, I was in business class and no entertainment was offered and no screen was provided in the seats"
Cons: "More available for information and resolve situation to passenger lost her connections"

Informed that A representative from Avianca would meet me at the airport to take me and others to a pre-arranged hotel. Immigration will not let me pass to baggage until the Avianca representative arrives. Still waiting."

Pros: "The flight attendance was excellent. The food was ok"
Pros: "My first time flying on Avianca. American based carriers should take a look at Avianca’s playbook. Free hot towel given after take off, free pillow and blanket, a meal served with out a fee. Flight attendants make up and hair professionally styled, flight attendants offering to place bags in overhead bins. Customs forms handed out an hour into the flight not the last 30 minutes."
Pros: "Flight was great. Aircraft was well equipped. About 30 minutes of flight time and was able to wait in the Avianca lounge so it was worth it."
Cons: "I wish they announced our flight gate change. We went to the wrong gate to walk all the way back to our original location."
Pros: "El viaje entre Quito y Guayaquil es bastante corto, por tanto, no hay mucho espacio para conocer la amabilidad del personal o la calidad de la comida, porque no hay tiempo para servir sino bebidas. El aeropuerto está bien pero debe mejorar el espacio de la sala VIP"

Pros: "all the crew was extremely friendly. The meals were delicious and my vegetarian request was honored. All the flights had meals even though some of them were strange times, and a good beverage selection was also offered. The in-flight entertainment was pretty top-notch. Great ticket price though, and somehow I lucked out and had some free seats next to me in some of the flights. very friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "all the flights that I was on didn't even start boarding until about 20 minutes before the plane was supposed to take off. This resulted in all the flights I was on being around 45 minutes to an hour late taking off. The cabin size was very small, it was hard to fit my stuff in the overhead compartment. not a lot of legroom and for a 6 foot one guy, this was a bit of an issue and I had some intense leg pain from my position. for the low-cost flight that I got I did have some seemingly out-of-the-way layovers and they were also quite long. would be great to see airplanes that The option to choose a bunk bed instead of a regular seat so that you could rest on redeye flights or just take naps in general."

Pros: "I am impressed! I will be booking through Avianca again!"

Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."
Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Cons: "Delta’s computer system was down. Long wait at the counter even though I did web check-in."

Pros: "Crew was kind, entertainment and food were good"
Cons: "Seats are really tight"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."
Pros: "great crew!"
Cons: "Were to plug a charger, pillows, tv screens"
Pros: "Crew did a great job."
Cons: "No entertainment. Copa app did not work on my phone."
Pros: "Crew were present"
Cons: "Poor entertainment, terrible food not very comfortable seats... older airplane."
Pros: "see previous comments"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They were very attentive throughout the course of the flight."
Cons: "Good service"
Cons: "When boarding from Panama City, the airline security crew at the gate screening insisted on taking my empty water bottle, I assume based on US regulations, even though it was clearly empty. When I pointed out that in the US, there is no problem with empty water bottles-- and the extra security is due to US standards-- they said 'this is Panama' and refused to return the water bottle. The rest of the crew was pleasant onboard the flight."
Pros: "Boarding was in Spanish - thankfully I recognized the number of our boarding group. Everything was average - what you’d expect on a normal flight. But for breakfast, one of the options was eggs. I expected something barely edible, but it was actually really tasty!"
Cons: "Boarding was all in Spanish. I recognized our group number though, so figured it out, but it’s always nice when it’s repeated in English."
Pros: "Food was great, crew was great."
Cons: "This flight did not have the screens for each seat, leaving no choice to choose what to watch or to see flight info."
Cons: "Seats very small"
Pros: "The breakfast was good, warm, fruits were fresh."
Pros: "Great flight. Decent sized seat. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the process was standard"
Cons: "For some reason both my friends and I felt it was a very uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "Again food"
Pros: "The stewardess was very unprofessional and being racist"
Pros: "It was non stop"
Cons: "The plane was freezing and when I asked the attendant for a blanket she said they were all out"
Pros: "Always is on time"
Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."
Pros: "Smooth flight, made up for lost time"
Cons: "Very unpleasant experience with crew generally. Very surprising, given previous experiences with Copa."
Pros: "Made the trip feel easier with their kindness."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the in flight movie through the headphones but not a big deal. Still had fun."
Pros: "The staff are very friendly"
Cons: "Be late to my next connection"
Pros: "Nice crew and we left on time"
Cons: "No legroom whatsoever nice crew and we left on time"
Pros: "On time, clean, and non stop, the latter being the best! First flight was a newer plane, and appreciate the USB ports. Older plane on return flight, but got home safe and sound with a little extra time to spare. That's a good trip in my book."
Cons: "Nothing negative."
Cons: "No individual screen and no USB chargers. No snack or coffe before landing in an 5 and a half flight"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Copa has a reputation for being the on-time airline in Central America, and so it was for all 5 of my flights with them this trip. Customer service on the phone was really great, too. They got things done, and done the first time."
Cons: "The in-flight TV screens are old-school and not very good."
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class. Awesome experience"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was late. They didn't have personal tvs and the headphone jack is didn't work for it anyway. Food was horrible. Took wayyy too long to get baggage."
Pros: "Great staff and quick flight"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I asked for the temp to be adjusted, but wasn't able to get them to fix much. It was easily 80 degrees."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly. My flights were on time. Check in was easy."
Cons: "We did not have the little TVs"
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"
Pros: "Food was decent. All Crew very helpful and polite."
Cons: "I wished the longer flight had personalized entertainment in each seat instead of the shorter flight. I could have watched two movies on the longer flight instead of just one."
Cons: "Why would you put a cartoon on to watch??"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Maybe a lil more movies"
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "Considering their is no water for purchase after security the airline should offer much more water during the flight. I was only offered a drink once during a 5+ hour flight. I had to ask for additional water later on."
Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "Copa allows two bags of 50 pounds to be checked along with carry-ons. They provide a full meal on each flight (at least that we've been on). The crew is accommodating, even providing more than one drink. The chairs are fairly comfortable."
Cons: "The headset didn't work well."
Pros: "Very welcoming flight crew! Did their best to make sure we were all comfortable throughout the flight."
Cons: "Little bit of trouble boarding the flight from Panama to Chicago - speakers weren't working and the COPA employees were struggling to communicate with everyone and get them to line up and board according the their group numbers."
Pros: "The crew were nice and they had good meal servir."
Cons: "We were in the last row which wasn't comfortable. The flight departed late, arrived late, and it took almost an hour for the bags to come out. The entertainment was also very poor."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
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 people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."
Cons: "Being an international flight of 5+ hours long, they only transmitted 1 movie."
Pros: "Don't you know this information already?"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was very nice."
Cons: "The staff at the Panama city airport while boarding were jerks. A couple of snobby women with attitude problems. Also there was basically no entertainment because it was impossible to see those little tv screens and even if yiu could see, you have to crane your neck. Also the lighting in this airplane was so horrid it was unbearable. Who chooses blue tinted lights? It's like flying in an industrial garage for 5 hours."
Cons: "No luggage space"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No more seats, rescheduled for the next day. poor service"
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled for 4 times ... Every time standing in a line for the new boarding pass"
Pros: "The flight was on time and there was adequate foot room"
Cons: "No free snacks- biscuits or pretzels?"
Pros: "The movies on board"
Cons: "The fact the plane was late"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, friendly crew."
Cons: "Almost two hours delay each way."
Pros: "On time, entertainment screen"
Cons: "that there is a charge for headphones"
Pros: "كل شي"
Pros: "Had extra space because plane was not full"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Changed gate three times"
Cons: "Late flight No communication Had done pre register to sit with father. They changed his seat upon boarding."
Pros: "Service flight on time food"
Cons: "No movies for 7 hour flight"
Cons: "no entertainment and poor seat selection"
Pros: "$800 reimbursement 1st class"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight by 2 passengers."
Cons: "I arrived at the gate and looked at my ticket to see "GTE" where the seat number usually is. I was informed upon arriving at the desk at the gate that that meant Air Canada has also decided to participate in the ridiculous practice of overbooking their flights and that even though I purchased my ticket roughly 8 weeks prior, there was a chance I might miss my flight to my friend's WEDDING. The lady who was working the desk was as unhelpful and dismissive as you could possibly imagine, refusing to look at me and giving me attitude for merely waiting in the area to see if anyone had missed the flight so I could get on. It was surreal; the only way I could describe her incomprehensible behavior would be to say it was as if her boss were right in front of her and she was trying her damnedest to get fired. It was one of those situations where you could tell this miserable, miserable person was enjoying the power trip she was on and doing everything in her power to make me feel helpless and angry. I made my flight, miraculously, but it was the worst customer service experience I have ever had in my life, airport or not."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "First flight was canceled, they did not get me on a flight till 4 pm the next day! Not to mention the two French Canadians I talked to were extremely rude. Finally the 3rd customer service women tried to get me home sooner but was unable to!! Have flown for years on air Canada without issues but this last trip was such an inconvenience I will not being flying with them agin!! They also did not cover my hotel or the taxi costs associated with me having my flight canceled, not even a discount!!!!!"
Cons: "Four hours of delays."
Cons: "Kiosk option wasn't supporting the baggage check policy, resulting in passenger were unable to print baggage tag and had to wait in long line over 1.5 hrs to check bag with staff. They also understated. It took me over 2 hrs to get throug check in process, not counting 45mins + through security check and custom. I had asked staff to expedite the process. C my flight was boarding. Staff could care or less and walked away. I had to run to my gate and almost miss my flight. Also, I was told that 1st checked bag was complimentary as this is a express aircraft. Staff wouldn't honor that. Come to find out as I entered the aircraft that they made many passengers do the complimentary gate check anyway. Rude and unaccompdating staff."
Pros: "Captain kept cre informed"
Cons: "Washrooms too far and had ti wait fir staff ti finish serving. Aisles very narrow"
Cons: "The boarding lady on lines 3-5 was rude with several people."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."

Pros: "Fast loading and unloading."
Cons: "Late!"
Pros: "The entertainment offerings were good. One crew member in particular helped us get back on the flight after we had been booted."
Cons: "Gate agent for Air Canada completely unhelpful about getting us to our connecting flight. Then the Toronto Airport was just HORRIBLE: all along the way, we had to go through security again to get to the American side, and there was no warning that the drinks we had bought *at the Dublin airport* would all be thrown out. Rude security employees. They also very slowly went through the duty free bottles of whisky I bought *at the Dublin airport*. Then there was this stupid line of kiosks that no one knew how to use, then for some reason another boarding check, then another, and then finally customs, with more rude staff members. We had NO IDEA any of this was coming, and got no warning from Air Canada. Then we rushed to our connecting flight, only to find out that we had been booted from the flight anyway. (I got an email about it, which of course I didn't check because I have limited data -- not everyone is made of money who can afford unlimited data!) Then we got on finally boarded, only to sit on the tarmac forever in uncomfortable seats when they could've just let us sit in the airport. Ugh."

Pros: "Got us home safely. Confortable seats."
Cons: "Left one piece of luggage behind. Had to wait for it to be sent on next flight."
Pros: "More leg room and in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Stewardess spilled hot tea on my husband and did not apologize."
Cons: "It was so late, I almost missed my connecting flight. They were not helpful. They did not communicate well and they refused to take any responsibility."
Pros: "Again, nice selection of entertainment and great crew."
Pros: "You want comfort? this is the way to go."
Cons: "Entertainment on short flight was limited."
Pros: "I . was impressed with the food and service.over all the whole trip was very good"
Cons: "there was nothing I did not like"
Cons: "Moving through security and customs in the Toronto airport was incredibly slow, with 4 or 5 checkpoints, all with lines. Staff were polite but there were not enough of them. We almost missed our connecting flight, and our bags apparently did miss it, because they have not yet arrived in Chicago (see previous comments). Air Canada should have seen the problem in terms of timing with the connecting flight and expedited better. Will try to avoid Air Canada in the future, especially if there are connections in Toronto."
Pros: "All went smoothly"
Pros: "The crew members in both the flights were amazing. they seemed like they enjoyed their job. Its not very common at Air Canada."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Toronto was delayed by half hour. But the boarding gate agents did not even mention the delay."
Cons: "Team in Chicago at Baggage Services was not helpful."
Pros: "Run by united but more efficient than a recent Air Canada flight."
Cons: "3 hour flight and had to pay extra for entertainment. Only two biscuits given for food. Cramped seats for anyone 6ft tall."
Pros: "Overall it was good. The crew was very friendly. The plane was small and it was a short flight, so everything else was average as expected for a short flight."
Pros: "Everithing-----Ramesh"
Cons: "Ramesh"
Pros: "Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew was very grumpy and not accommodating to families (ours and others). No wifi or outlets."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats are much tighter than Southwest and Virgin. My husband and I are taller (6' and 5'9" respectively) and our knees kept bumping the seats in front of us."
Cons: "My name was on both reservations, i did not notice this until my wife and i tried to check in. They would not change the name on one of the tickets to my wife, Kathleen. So we had to cancel the entire reservation. I have trip insurance with Allianz, and am trying to get a refund for the tickets. If"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Cramped seating in basic economy, the upgrade seating wasn’t much better"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Tight seats, no access to actual WiFi unless you purchase a yearly or monthly plan"
Cons: "The flight was a little early which I truly love! Everything else was just fine."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better. If you have 5 groups you should have 5 lines — not 2. Also the terminal in Holland was extraordinarily cold."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The entertainment app did not allow me to watch any of the quality programming and my seat to Chicago was extremely cramped and did not recline."
Cons: "Several delays for maintenance and then plane in our gate when we landed"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Space a little cramped.for spmepne 6'3""
Pros: "Everything was really smooth sailing."
Cons: "Everything was great! The Charleston airport is small yet very nice inside"
Pros: "Check-in process was smooth"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Lots of leg room for a regional jet."
Cons: "AC was not very good. Very warm on flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The marvel of flying. Hurling through the air in a metal tubeZ amazing. We got there safe and on time. That’s what I liked about United. Oh and there was a CSR that was helpful in changing to an earlier flight."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Bathroom disgusting. Crew just trying to get through the work day. Seats too close and REAL uncomfortable. Like sitting on a plastic frame with a piece of fake leather over it. Entertainment was awful. Oh wait, non existent since it was an “out of country” flight so there was no access to movies (that you had to PAY for). Otherwise you got to watch Matthew Perry in some taxi game show over and over and over and over on a monitor in your face that couldn’t be shut off. United is my last choice in airlines. But we did get to the destination safe and on time."
Pros: "at check in - check baggage was quickly serviced"
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "N/a"
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: "Staff are so nice"
Pros: "Staff in Syracuse where awsome from the guy at the united check in Guest to the TSA Gal who had to give us a patdown super sweet and helpful."
Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour but not notified of the length of the delay in a fashion which would allow me to drive the 2 hours to Chicago in order to make my connection. Repeatedly told the connecting flight was the last one out of the entire airport to my final destination. Heard other travelers discussing that they had been rebooked onto an alternate airline and then found a later flight on Kayak, walked up to podium and asked to be rebooked on that specific flight, which they grudgingly did. Of note, I was repeatedly reassured that they were "sure" I would make my connection without a problem and to stop worrying so much. My flight left out of Madison 2 minutes after my connection departed Chicago. I usually fly a different airline, whose flights out of Madison were all on time that day, and will do so in the future despite more expensive ticket. The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew weren’t as welcoming. No leg room at all."
Pros: "It was a typical flight."
Cons: "The screen/ video entertainment system was broken and the flight attendant was rude about it."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "We loved the small terminal at Sky Harbor, with the cute little discounted parking lot, no more that 100 feet away. We loved the location of Avis Rental Car, directly across from the baggage pick-up exit doors, at Regional Southwest. Our flights were all on-time, and the crew was extremely professional."
Cons: "No need for reclining seats. These cause a problem with leg room, for the person behind the "recliner.""
Cons: "One of the crew members was late to arrive, so boarding was delayed. However, The gate crew was amazing, very communicative and apologetic. During the flight the attendants seemed very agitated, I think a smile would go along way to improve the attitude of everyone. I also work with the public, I get that it is challenging, but I do believe that the simple gesture of a smile sets the tone."
Pros: "Although the plane left SFO nearly 20 minutes late, we still arrived in Chicago early."
Pros: "Fell asleep right as the plane took off and was not disturbed by anybody for the duration of the flight. As a result I do not know whether food and drinks were served and their quality."
Cons: "Bag was lost Inefficient check in employee Poorly trained TSA employees Long wait before take off Very uncomfortable and crammed seat"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, swift flight"
Cons: "Seat was changed to last row/middle seat (not what initially booked or confirmed with online check-in). Before takeoff, attendant moved all passengers in back row to alternate seats. Which meant that I was no longer traveling with my colleague. Unfortunately, that made our intended meeting time impossible."
Pros: "United Provide good service"
Cons: "The flight delayed"
Pros: "Very short flight seating was normal for what I expect as a guy my size"
Cons: "I couldnt figure out their wifi to check on my connecting flight. I could get other stuff to work on it but couldnt find flight information"
Pros: "The crews and staff were competent and helpful."
Cons: "The seat pitch and width isn't worth the price of the flight. Some passengers winced some when they saw where they would be seatied in the cramped cabin. For the plane type, I would think not much can be done for the width, but the tight seat pitch is very tight for most of the people that fly."
Cons: "I understand the weather issue that occurred in ORD, but not letting the passengers know what was going on, except for delay, delay, delay was unacceptable, even after the weather calmed down. I will never fly United, thru ORD again"
Pros: "very kind flight crew, no complaints coming back!"
Cons: "We did have one seemingly annoyed flight attendant on the way to NOLA from Chicago, and older woman. Seemed like every question we had was a burden. Everyone else was really nice, though."
Pros: "Boeing planes are very comfortable. No pressure Really nice experience"
Pros: "Good flight overall would book again"
Cons: "The wifi onboard was broken. There were no t.v. sets to watch."
Pros: "Attendants were nice."
Cons: "I booked the comfort economy seating that I normally do with Delta. With their additional cost you get a larger seating area, free in-flight movies, reserved compartment space for your carry on and a free drink. No such thing with United. They did try to have movies through their app, but it wouldn't play long enough to allow you to watch."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty legroom."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Very nice and smooth flight, lasted even less time"
Cons: "The lady at check in couldn't give me and my boyfriend seats next to each other, but thankfully there was a very nice lady who agreed to exchange seats in the plane."
Pros: "Flight and service were great."
Cons: "United it terrible at letting you know flights are delayed. Got to the airport and found out my flight wasn't going to take off till 2:45 which was 4 hours later then my scheduled flight. I asked the ticketing associate why it was delayed and she said that it was due to crew issues. At least let me know that the flight is delayed so I didn't have to get to the airport 5 hours before my flight took off."
Pros: "Some gate agents were very helpful and friendly with making (gratis) layover changes due to weather issues in my original layover city."
Cons: "They don't assign seats ahead of time, in FCA...too much "juggling" people around prior to boarding."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow in coach that the man with broad shoulders that sat next to me could not help being in my seat. I needed to be able to sleep, since it was an overnight flight. This was not possible."
Pros: "The flight attendents were attentive and did a great job."
Cons: "Customer service was rude to us about our carry on. It was fine on the way to Boston, but made to pay and check it on the way back. other customers had bags our size but we we're rudely told "you need to go pay for your bag that's it". The bag fit effortlessly in the top on the way there."
Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Cons: "Delays, had to stay overnight in Chicago since we arrived 6 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was very informing and they fly attendants were very polite"
Cons: "Once we arrived Ohara airport this went from bad to worse. The plane arrived late and the we sat in the airplane for over 2hours because of repairs being made. I feel like the crew cold have been more forthcoming about what was happening it took at least .30min before we were told anything. After sitting on the plane for over 1 hours they finally move us to a new plane to board all over again it was very unorganized ."
Pros: "I liked: The rambunctious kid behind me in the security line who was the Asian version of Chris Farley playing Rudolph Giuliani's kid on Saturday Night Live."
Cons: "I disliked: The fact that the flight departed at 6:00 am. It's my own fault for choosing such an ungodly hour."
Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."
