Cons: "For Long flights you need bigger seats"

Pros: "This was my first complete trip using momondo to book my flights from LAX to SFO. This was also my first time flying AlaskA! Everything about the momondo app and Alaska Airlines was perfect!! Momondo did an immaculate job of informing me about flights and when to check in, and if anything was delayed."
Cons: "Our flight home was delayed by 2 hours, luckily the Alaskan airline staff was super accommodating. We just so happen to be at the gate when an earlier flight was boarding, and they graciously allowed us to board ahead of schedule. They were amazing."

Pros: "Clean plane, easy boarding"
Cons: "TSA just had an issue which delayed all passengers by an hour but Alaska couldn’t avoid the issue so not their fault"

Pros: "The flight was quick with food available for purchase. Seats were fine."
Cons: "The gate waiting area was very very watm"

Cons: "They didn't have the menu item I most wanted, the harvest salad, but no big deal!"

Cons: "If the complimentary snack was something other than a sweet item. Both flights had a Biscotti type cookie. A salty crunch item like ChexMix or Pretzels would have been great. I lost my wallet so I was unable to purchase"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent"
Cons: "Power outlet was loose and allowed plug to drop out of outlet. USB didn’t work"

Pros: "Flight was smooth & timely."
Cons: "Way to many announcements."

Pros: "Friendly service as always. Clean cabin as always also."
Cons: "The boarding and deplaning process were both terrible. Slow. Delayed. Not what I’m used to with Alaska airlines at all. Also, disliked the lack of chargers at the seats."

Pros: "Crew was fine. Plane was fine. Boarding was okay, but late. They did give us an upgrade in seating on a flight to Salt Lske since they were late arriving at Seattle. The"
Cons: "Sat on ground for over an hour at Dulles A luggage problem wad the rationale. They was some inclement weather, but they knew it was coming and should have been prepared. Upon our late arrival at Seattle there was no one to direct or expedite our attempt to make our connection. There was no attempt to help us make our connection. Instead of arriving Helena at 3 pm., it was midnight."

Pros: "The crew was so darn efficient and the pilot was so funny over the speaker! Thank you Alaska for slaying this flight"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and while watching a movie, there were many interruptions ( announcements )."

Cons: "Flight delayed over one hour and no explanations given. Turned out they boarded us without the pilots on board. So then we just sat on the plane and waited. I have a small baby and it made the travel experience exponentially worse."

Pros: "I liked nothing. TSA is a sad partner in the “Expidite your Line Wait for Cash” racketeering scam. They make Hundreds miss their flights because of lengthy wait times, then leave you only a couple options; Pay or miss your flight. Absolutely sickening."
Cons: "I liked nothing. TSA is a sad partner in the “Expidite your Line Wait for Cash” racketeering scam. They make Hundreds miss their flights because of lengthy wait times, then leave you only a couple options; Pay or miss your flight. Absolutely sickening."

Pros: "On time/early arrival"

Pros: "Great flight with on time arrival and departure."

Pros: "Everyone super friendly no other complaints"

Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"

I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"

Pros: "Prompt. Very friendly"

Pros: "Couldn't believe how clean and fresh-smelling the restroom was! The seats are a nice wipe-able vinyl or leather material. Flight attendants were accommodating and had friendly mannerism. SkyWest/Alaska offered for us to check a bag for free, then both bags we had checked arrived at baggage claim within the 20mn post-flight, as promised."

Pros: "Nice short flight with no turbulence, comfortable temperature made it easy to sleep."

Pros: "I liked that we landed safely"

Pros: "Everything went exactly on schedule, all good."
Cons: "Captain said they were expecting heavy turbulence, no service that flight. It was actually one of the more smooth flights I've taken in the last 20 years. I guess it's hard to know exactly what to expect weather wise."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and on-time, onboard service was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic and confusing."

Pros: "Efficient and comfortable"

Pros: "Good natured crew"

Pros: "On the plane legroom was much appreciated. Very convenient airport as living in Fairfield County. Good departure time, although general flight delays (Feb 3rd - runway problems) meant long lines & very crowded airport, with limited eating facilities."
Cons: "Return flight (Fort Myers to Westchester) flight was delayed - believe it was weather related & not the airlines fault."

Pros: "The steward was awesome! Very patient and funny"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"

Pros: "Crew is nice, seat space is slightly larger than other airlines"
Cons: "This route (BOS-DCA and back) is ALWAYS delayed. This time it was 3 hours. I should have taken the train!"

Pros: "The crew was ok."
Cons: "We wait too much, at least someone should have told the reasons for the waiting."

Pros: "That the crew put safety first!!!!!!!"
Cons: "That we were delayed, when I had already taken a Red-Eye from Vegas. Delayed due to computer. Then boarded, then delayed again as they found another safety issue and had to power down the aircraft to reset, which DID fix the issue."

Pros: "Lots of space and TVs"
Cons: "If the flight was on time"

Pros: "Everything. Perfect service"

Pros: "Crew amazing, seats comfortable, lots of leg room"

Cons: "got to airport and had to pay additional 100.00 because of unaccompanied minor. would have liked to know that at booking. not at airport."

Cons: "All that waiting. Getting home much later than expected."

Pros: "Arrived on time."

Pros: "Nice snacks"

Pros: "I liked the crew and how upbeat they were. It was very easy boarding process."
Cons: "I honestly can’t think of anything that I did not like about this flight."

Cons: "Got to airport an hour ahead, and then hit an unreal TSA wall. It's freaking heartbreaking the way we've all embraced ridiculous Security Theater (oh, yeah, sure--take off my shoes? Of course.) and that airports don't spend the moments it would take implement a protocol to systematically shepherd passengers through *appropriate* levels of screening based on variables such as departure times and past record. Aw, but that'd be too complicated. So screw us, one and all."

Pros: "The flight was mercifully short."
Cons: "This was supposedly a first-class flight. There was no distinction between the "first class" seating and the rest of the seats on the plane. Apparently JetBlue didn't feel they'd gotten their cut for my first-class ticket to Zurich through IcelandAir, so they did absolutely nothing to make this seem like a first-class flight. I didn't even board early. I will actively avoid JetBlue in the future."

Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Cons: "Multiple changes in arrival time (5X total), tv was not working, WiFi was okay."

Pros: "Reconnected a missed connection"
Cons: "A notice went out at 15mins before boarding that the plane had not left another city yet 1:45mins away. The agent, Kyle, in PIT told me not to worry about my connecting flight “that all flights were delayed.” That was a lie. My connecting flight to JFK went out on time and I missed it by 20-30mins. The “Just ask Me” desk, set me up with another’s flight to a different airport LAG. I’m sitting in the airport waiting to board a flight who’s door close at 11:15am and everyone is still sitting here at 11:05am."

Cons: "Flight was 7 hrs delayed!!!"

Pros: "On time, friendly crew"

Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"

Cons: "The plane sat at the gate for over an hour because of a mechanical concern. I’m glad for safety, but this felt like poor planning and made catching our connecting flight complicated."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."

Pros: "I sat at the back of the plane and the flight attendants were great."

Cons: "Constant delays."

Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was seamless. Red Sox were in extra innings and I couldn't find my earbuds. The flight attendant managed to find me a pair so I could listen to the game, and was super nice about it. I appreciate her efforts."

Cons: "Loved it!"

Pros: "Muy buen servicio y puntualidad"

Pros: "Late delay notification"
Cons: "Called the airline directly to verify the status of flight within 24hrs and everything was on schedule according to them. Even tho the airport at San Juan have not night arrivals due to the effects of Hurricane Maria, and on previous days the same flight had been moved to a morning schedule for that reason. I was notified of the delay within hours of departure of the connecting flight."

Pros: "I loved being able to watch two movies on my flight! Who has the time for t hat anymore? It makes the hours fly by!"

Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"

Pros: "Love Delta...plenty of legroom. Nearly always on time"

Pros: "on time. easy no issues"

Pros: "Great crew. Good space on my exit row seat"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline, though it's considered a "premium" seat. No power either. Ticketing process was crazy - I was not able to get a seat assignment until 5 minutes before boarding. Why? And there was no explanation of the situation. I had to ask, multiple times, what was going on,before I was finally told that I was going to get on, but they just didn't know where. This could be handled much more clearly!"

Pros: "Delta flight attendants were much more pleasant and friendly than any other airlines. They made my red-eye flight comfortable."
Cons: "Trying to board was a mess. It was disorganised and inefficient."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Pros: "The gate agent helped half a dozen people (not including those described below) understand they were boarding with the wrong group."
Cons: "Fully one-quarter of the passengers boarded as disability or premium. This included a party of eight that boarded with one person in a wheelchair because "We're all together.""

Pros: "Flight attendants were competent."
Cons: "Air conditioning was extremely noisy."

Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat No entertainment"

Pros: "All restroom floors were wet. I have seen this in others 767's too. Is this a 767 phenomenon"

Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

Pros: "The agents at the gate were very efficient and the flight crew was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "My seat area was not clean. The arm rest and the tray area had food? on it."

Pros: "The price of the ticket was great."
Cons: "The flight was crowded, no overhead bin space from passengers putting coats and jackets in the bin instead of under their seats. I was in the middle seat between two large men breathing down on me while they slept. It was a nightmare. On a flight that long the seats shouldn’t be that close in proximity nor should larger passengers be allowed to sit in seats too small for their body type. That’s not discrimination that’s logical."

Pros: "Crew was gracious and helpful"
Cons: "Seating is always crammed, uncomfortable, people packed in like sardines. But I guess that’s par for the course with all airlines nowadays."

Pros: "We appreciated being upgraded to first class using my segments."
Cons: "For a 2 1/2 hour flight in first class all we got was our pick from a basket of chips. Horrible!"

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"

Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"

Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice, and helpful."
Cons: "I remember you used to get to choose from some seats even if you didn't pay extra. Since the smaller airlines started charging to choose, now the big ones are doing it as well. I checked in for two tickets at the same time, but my wife and i were still separated. Frustrating"

Pros: "I like the fact that I finally got home."
Cons: "Not be delayed 5 hours."

Pros: "yes thank you"
Cons: "all vary good"

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Pros: "Plane was late missed all connecting flights"

Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"

Cons: "Stale pretzels"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."

Cons: "the fact that they rushed everyone only to have you wait in the ramp"

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"

Cons: "Nothing..."

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Pros: "The Pilot still got us here on time, even though we took off late"
Cons: "The flight attendant in my section was sharp & cranky. We never recieved snacks."

Pros: "Time was good. Ground service was good. In-flight was okay. Because I love Cathay so much I took a 3 hour longer trip through LA (vs. Seattle) and paid more. But I was berating myself for that. But the flight back was Cathay service at its finest."

Cons: "The 2 hour delay."

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Had been expecting middle for all four,so this was great."
Cons: "Guess I need Bose noise canceling headphones after all."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Cons: "Fast flight"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"

Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"

Pros: "Crew was nice and gave my son Captain Wings"
Cons: "Left 50 minutes late, only provided sugar cookies as food"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight attends were slightly curt."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "All I want is clear communication- not strung along. Reasonably comfortable seat - without person next to me too large for seat. Don't gate check my bag then I find plenty of space above my seat. Stop giving people food and drink on short flights as it is unnecessary and it constrains use of the bathroom"
Cons: "The scene of returning bags at the gate of arrival is awkward and other passengers take advantage - blocking walkway etc. please change system and adt a baggage handler to drop bags in a line along one side of the gateway while passengers wait along other side of the gateway"

Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "Too tight, seat was uncomfortable, food was bland"

Cons: "The staff, specifically Stephen, need to focus when serving who he served and where he left off! 5 passengers were not served at all until they came around for trash which we did not have! Then were told there were not any full meals left! If you booked that many tickets the amount of meals should match!"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Cons: "Plane size"

Cons: "Plane got cancelled. Missed my other flight. Spending $100 more that was unnecessary"

Pros: "Crew always helpful and polite."
Cons: "Only Vegetarian meals available for myself and many passengers. Later snacks also Vegetarian. Only chocolate ice cream. All I had to eat was the crumble in the main meal. No hot tea whilst waiting three and half hour for repairs to computer."

Pros: "Seat"

Pros: "They were able to arrange for a seat for my daughter who was technically a lap child. The crew were courteous and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Good price and thankfully it wasn't a full flight."
Cons: "The shared TV's in the middle. I didn't like the option, so I tried to watch a movie on my laptop, but the person in front of me pushed their seat back which made watching next to impossible."

Pros: "Flight was on time, not crowded, landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Two hour wait in line just to drop a checked bag off. International security took one tenth as much time. Not sure why American Airlines couldn't handle the influx of baggage."

Pros: "The crew was kind and courteous. Highly professional and helpful."
Cons: "Aside from flying through a huge storm which is out of anyone's control and arriving 20 minutes early only to have to sit on the plan as the terminal was occupied, my trip was great."

Cons: "Where to begin? The pilot suggested we would "probably miss our connecting flight" but not to worry because he would be "moving quickly" through the air. Missed my connecting flight. Ended up stuck in Charlotte with no more flights to Florida. And the airline left my bag in Charlotte. Disaster."

Pros: "Flying on American Airlines like many other airlines is a frustrating experience. The added charges for baggage and seat choice are insulting when you are used to flying on southwest. It should all be covered when buying a flight. The people lining up at the door to get on the plane spill out in to the hallways and block traffic trying to get by. Southwest airlines has a number system to get on the plane and therefor avoids the crowding the entrance to get on before all the overhead space is taken. I really think american could learn a lot from Southwest airlines. I will when possible avoid this airline if there is a flight with southwest."

Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"

Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Pros: "Crew was nice and very efficient"
Cons: "Maintenance didn't have plane ready to depart on time"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Pros: "Everyone friendly and professional"

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Cons: "I hate the apps for entertainment- it's so chintzy in comparison to Delta that has the nice the on the back of the chairs. Seats so cramped"

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"

Pros: "The only problem is that United ticket counter did not let me check my bag for free! I hv united visa credit card & i thought that was one of the many perks!"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "Personable staff, great flight time and an awesome landing."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "The staff was pleasant tho"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Chicago due to my first flight being delayed an hour, which in turn forced me to stay overnight because the next available flight wasn't until the next day"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Delays in boarding caused me to reschedule to another flight, which the attendant was damn near unable to arrange. The reschedule somehow caused me to lose my window seat even though I was on the same exact flight. This overbooked flight ended up being full of all kinds of grumpy and upset passengers (rightfully so). Uncomfortable seats just made it that much worse. Poor job overall"

Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Pros: "I would like to have a movie for free"

Pros: "That you provided a direct flight"
Cons: "I purchased my tickets on 10/30/2015 for an aisle seat. I check in the day before and no seat assignment, get to the kiosk and no seat assignment. I see the agent at the gate and she gives me a middle seat, I complained and she gave me an aisle seat. I get to my seat and someone is sitting in that seat, I go back to the front of the plane and wait to be assigned to another seat. The agent said they changed the plane that's why everyone lost seat assignments, 6 out of the 8 people that all booked together sat in their assigned seats. Never fly with them again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything's"
