Cons: "Their wasn't anything I disliked."
Pros: "Staff was awesome"

Pros: "Excellent Crew - I flew standby, so have great gate agents and flight attendants makes all the difference when you’re hoping for a seat. In flight they are professional and personable and keep you up to date on what you need to know! Plus, I’m always happy when my flights have USB ports so I’m fully charged when I deplane."
Cons: "I always want more leg room or a little more room under the seat in front of me. But I didn’t upgrade for a roomier seat and there was more than enough overhead space, so truly can’t complain about it!"

Pros: "Great flight on tomen comfortable seats"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was pleasant. The crew were friendly and helpful, the flight was smooth and ran on time. I liked the organic snack box. I would definitely fly Alaskan again and recommend it to my friends."
Pros: "Very comfortable plane and excellent crew"
Pros: "All around high quality airline, very professional and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "They need a better selection of snacks, and seats with built in monitors to watch tv instead of the hand held tablets available for rent. The tablets can also sit on the tray but it's not comfortable on my neck."
Pros: "The plane was clean. The crew was extremely friendly- always had a smile. Tablets for rent and with "free" entertainment on tablet. Boarding is from back of the plane- no groups."
Cons: "Returned on red eye - too many lights on making it difficult to sleep. Not providing free movies, etc on a cross country trip. M"
Pros: "Nice flight and crew."
Cons: "I got spoiled by the first flight with new plane and great crew, but no complaints really."
Pros: "the seats were much more comfortable and the fans worked. I had a way better flight."
Cons: "My luggage was off loaded in Juneau and staff was not very helpful in providing information on claims etc....Very disappointed with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "After a long delay the captain did his best to get us to Anchorage as quickly as possible. That was appreciated."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours due to the fact that the scheduled captain could not fly anymore due to hours. We had to wait to get another pilot. This caused some problems for some who had schedules to meet, and rides to be notified. The airline needs to see this possibility sooner so long waits are avoided as much as possible. The 737 was not as comfortable as the regional jet on our first leg of this trip."
Pros: "The service was great, everyone was very friendly!"
Cons: "The change from virgin airlines to Alaska was a bit confusing. I was told conflicting things and was not told that I would have to pic up my checked bag to re-check it. There needs to be more clear instructions on what someone needs to do if they are flying with both airlines."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and efficient. The seats were comfortable, but my wive got squeezed by a large person next to her. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but they need to recline or have foot rest. When I missed the flight your CS was excellent her name was Whitney and she was in Seattle.."
Cons: "Should not charge for WIFI service in the air"
Cons: "delays resulted in being on the plane four hours. Food consisted of cookies. Seated in back of plane where three flight attendants were chatting at the top of their lungs for the *entire* GODDAM flight. oh, it was a 10 pm - 12:10 AM flight. How considerate."
Pros: "• Quick to board plane and take off • Flight arrived sooner than expected • built in plugs so you can charge your computer or phone."
Cons: "They have a 20 minute policy for baggage claim. At the 19 minute mark they sent up about 20 bags and stoped. It took them another 30 minutes to start sending more bags. One of the airline attendants spelt a fruit package on the floor in front of me. The juice from the package got all over my bag below the seat in front of me, getting important military paperwork damaged and she didn't even apologize."
Pros: "It was a beautiful flight. Everyone was kind and accomodating."
Cons: "Boarded early because of disability, crew unable to assist in placing carry-on in overhead bin (bad back, medical reason or other excuses). Intermittent "rough flight" Lavatory - not flushed when entered, reported to crew. Problem ?"
Pros: "Mostly smooth flight and good service."
Cons: "Didn't use provided entertainment service."
Cons: "My wife cleaned the seat headrest with a disinfectant wipe and it was very dirty."

It was really full but that’s how it goes.

Crew couldn’t have been better. Bathrooms were especially clean. Plane was very clean. Everyone wore mask and felt safe. We had a plane switch due to a mechanical problem but it was only a 40 minutes delay and we were informed the whole time.

I’m still in Atlanta!!!!!!!!!

Staff was great. Could have had a menu so I could know what I could order in between meals.

Cons: "Great flight. No issues."
Cons: "Breakfast could have been offered."
Cons: "Delayed flight ruined it."
Pros: "Missed it"
Cons: "Give back money"
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Landed early."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The temperature, it was kind of hot."
Cons: "Safe and happy travel!"
Pros: "Not much I liked"
Cons: "The crew were the worst Delta crew I’ve ever had. Sat 1st class and waited 1 hour from sitting in my seat untill I was offered a beverage. Asked for a snack and was told to wait until the basket was brought around, 20 minutes later. Asked for coffee, it was terrible and served with attitude."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Pros: "VERY small plane and small narrow seats"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Pros: "small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "respectful size seat"
Pros: "On time this time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No video screen"
Pros: "This was my daughter’s first solo travel home from college. She said the staff was helpful and kind. She loved that the flight was not over crowded. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Only negative thing she could say was her flight was delayed an hour. But that isn’t terrible considering all the holiday travelers."
Pros: "Good customer service in person"
Pros: "chwcking in was very easy."
Cons: "No in board beverages. On flight from RDU to PHL beverages were served."
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Minneapolis, there was another flight to Denver that I meant I could’ve been home three hours earlier had I done standby, but because I had a cheaper ticket I was not allowed that opportunity. That makes absolutely no sense to me seeing as my flight was packed. I’m sorry my flight saved me money"
Pros: "the flight was quick and it was fine. flight crew was polite and professional."
Cons: "i didn’t like that my knees were in the row in front of me, and we hit some pretty scary bumps. i get really anxious about turbulence."
Pros: "Ease of check in and friendly people"
Cons: "Marta"
Pros: "Did not wait for luggage."
Cons: "Food was marginal. Equipment had low ceiling under carry on shelf. No entertainment."
Pros: "Delta provided great entertainment options and it felt like endless food and drinks. The seats were also a bit more spacious than usual"
Pros: "Staff personalities"
Cons: "Waited extra 20 mins after door closed to-complete loading luggage"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "There was no TV's on this flight."
Pros: "There was one helpful lady"
Cons: "Flight was rerouted and rebooked twice. I’m stuck in Detroit overnight, and won’t be getting to Monterrey until tomorrow afternoon. Thanks, delta!"
Pros: "Uneventful flight - boarding was great and there were no hassles."
Cons: "No food. No onboard entertainment."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it set off a slew of connection problems."
Pros: "Flight attendants were really kind"
Cons: "We were an hour late to leave so I missed my connecting flight and am currently stuck in Minneapolis for nearly 8 hours now"
Pros: "Stewardesses were sympathetic but could do nothing."
Cons: "A few flurries out of Philadelphia and flight is delayed 2.5 hrs, we therefore miss our connection and all they wanted us to do was spend 2 days in airport until next flight. Finally reached a compassionate soul at customer service who got creative and routed us to BCN via ATL, Miami and Madrid."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and curtious. Boarding was a bit more chaotic than usual and the gate agent made no announcement about boarding procedure, which certainly contributed to the scrum resulting. I arrived from the Skyclub several minutes prior to boarding time and was unable to find a path through to the Priority Boarding Lane. As boarding began she had to redirect at least seventy-five percent of those in front of me as they were not in First Class. Had she made one or more clear announcements about boarding procedure I rather doubt such a misunderstanding would have occurred with so many."
Cons: "For the third Delta flight in a row (all First Class) the crew did not make any effort to keep economy class cuctomers form storing bags in the First Class overhead or using the only First Class laveratory during flight. This flight I was unable to utilize the laveratory even once due to this excessive and continuous useage. Trying to do my bit to reduce our carbon footprint, yet I am sorely tempted to return to charter service when disrespect of the airlines own basic service class rules gets piled on top of TSA hassles."
Pros: "I had a window seat"
Cons: "bumpy flight"
Pros: "As usual, Delta staff and crew did their best to make the flight quite enjoyable and smooth."
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"
Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."
Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."
Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."
Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not have 6 hour delays after people have already boarded the plane."
Pros: "Crew good. Seat cramped"
Cons: "Not lost my bag!"
Cons: "Everyone was very rude and would not answer questions and flight very delayed. No bad weather conditions"
Cons: "1 hour 30 min late taking off."
Cons: "They cancelled two of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again."
Pros: "Non-stop flight and arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No individual entertainment in seat backs and the common system wasn’t working. But, since it was an overnight flight it wasn’t that disappointing"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable chair. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew that was on board was pleasant. I always like flying American."
Cons: "There was no flight attendants so the flight was delayed for an hour."
Cons: "Very old airplane used for this route. Upgraded to business but seats and pods are old fashioned, uncomfortable. Newer pods and planes used in other routes make the entire trip more comfortable. The video system didn’t work properly, hard to figure out what to watch."
Pros: "On time . No significant delays cost of ticket low."
Cons: "Tiny plane with small seats never that comfortable."
Pros: "Safe flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours including change of aircraft and departure gate at PHL."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The attendant at the gate was rude. She asked for me to put my bag in the slot to see if it will fit. It fit, and she told me I still need to check my bag because I squeezed it in there. She told me that I either “had to check my bag or find alternative way home” . After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me. Also the outlet at the gate didn’t work."
Cons: "The flight and the entire process with American was just fine. What bothered me most was the rude treatment from security staff in Philadelphia. Compared to security staff overseas, the U.S. rates the lowest of the 55+ countries I've visited. It does not reflect badly on American Airlines, but it does give travelers a bad lasting impression. As an American, I'm embarrassed by their behavior."
Pros: "Our plane was given to another group going to Orlando so we were delayed almost 4 hours. This after a 5 hour layover."
Cons: "Gate lady was funny about being pissed about the delay."
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"
Pros: "Basic flight. Super uncomfortable seats. Older plane. Cramped. Pilot was great. Flight smooth."
Cons: "Got there safe!"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Cons: "Never taken!!!"
Cons: "Flight crew was late and didn’t try and make things move faster to make up time. Kept saying they wanted to go Puerto Rico and that’s where they should have been going."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 90 minutes because the incflight mint flight was late"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot was going so fast never told us why we kept descending and going back up and people were throwing up and they wouldn’t give soda to settle stomachs"
Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome. Also, cross country flight but no in flight entertainment. Arrived early in PHL and American would not let me move up to an earlier PHL-SFO flight since it was a code share booked with BA. Should not be my fault as when booking it indicated all four of my flights were with BA. Once booked it indicated the return flights were code share with AA. American should have allowed me on the earlier flight. That would have opened a seat on the scheduled flight which had people waiting on standby."
Cons: "Kay(Kathy) our flight attendant was unfriendly and acted like she was put out or overworked.Her attitude was unprofessional and we fly a lot. This is not acceptable for First Class Service. No footrests; no monitors for a movie. Very disappointed.........was not First Class caliber. ** couldn’t get into Admirals Club with First Class tickets. Need to look for another airline."
Pros: "I liked that food and entertainment was included without additional charges, even a glass of wine."
Cons: "Not too comfortable to sleep in."
Cons: "Attendant at the gate forced me to leave my troley hand bag to be checked with the excuse the fly was full and there was not sapce for people on groups 7 and 8 ( seats rear in te plane). I explained her I had personal documents and stuff inside my trolley but she told me I had to take another fly if I refused to checked. Our surprise was that the space above our seats ( row 30) was available and left empty the while fly! It was not fear and discriminated!"
Cons: "After flying from Denver to Philly, I had anticipated an hour and a half layover. First email came speaking of a delay, then second, then about five emails later American Airlines notified me that there will be a 4 hour delay. To get from Philly to avoca on a flight is half an hour. On a bus, its two hours. If an airline knows there will be a four hour delay, how do you not provide that service? I watched plent of other flights go to AVP and even to Allentown, no one could offer one of those options to me? Cold, compressed and miserable experience."
Pros: "Pretty good dinner and breakfast, complimentary wine"
Cons: "Slow flaky entertainment system didn't work at all in some seats, needed multiple 10-minute reboots in other seats. I was unable to complete a 2 hour movie on a 9 hour flight. No internet."
Pros: "Great! The flight wasn't full, so the attendants went out of there way to move people around so we all had more space. Flight left on time, was smooth, everything was wonderful."
Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Pros: "American Airlines was great!"
Cons: "Finnair changed my flight to American Airlines (which I don't mind) but never notified me and made me go through hoops to get the changed record indicator."
Pros: "The boarding has become much clearer and efficient since the new system is deployed (instead of calling each level, you just see the boarding group no.)"
Cons: "The seat is cramped to its maximum. Leg room is no longer a thing. Entertainment system is lacking... sigh..."
Pros: "The flight had a delay of 4 hours in Philadelphia. I missed the appointment in Lisbon for which I was flying in the first place. Furthermore, I had purchased the ticket with the intent of flying with British Airways and found myself in a charter from American Airlines. I wish to be compensated for this mistake. Thank you"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late departure, and arrival (no gate at LAX due to late arrival."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job coming into SFO airport. Had to abort landing and do it again."
Cons: "Unless we slept through it, no food or snack was served. It was a 6+ hour flight. I was awake for water and soda offerings but not even nuts. To be fair, I may have been asleep but I woke up every time a drink was offered. We came from a connecting international flight with no time to get a meal. We grabbed a bagel as we rushed through the airport. I didn't pick the flight so we couldn't have more time."
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Pros: "good timing"
Cons: "snacks and beverages..."
Pros: "Another great flight. On our plane the entertainment was free and I was able to watch a lot of movies. We even landed early"
Cons: "I know it was a very long flight and my butt and legs were hiring by the time we landed. Also I'm lactose intolerant. And I wasn't able to eat any of the food. But it did look good. But overall a very good flight."
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly at all"
Pros: "The attendants were helpful and Kind"
Cons: "Prices, again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great. I was also surprised that they gave out pretzels and soda for free. Other airlines advertise cheaper flight but nickel and dime you to death. The plane was very clean"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "the crew handled the lengthy delay as well as they could, seems like they didn't have any information either which is ridiculous."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at 1:30 for a 2:00 flight, there was a filter out in one of the three bathrooms; the option to take a 45 min flight without use of the restrooms was there, we were told to use the restroom if we needed to before the flight so everyone did... then we continued to sit on the ground for two hours. After two hours we were allowed to get off the plane, 20 minutes later back onto the plane, backed away from the gate and then pulled into a different gate and were told to get back off the plane. At this point we were given no info or direction but to go talk to special services if we want to re-book a different flight (sold out until at the earliest 8:15pm). After about an hour they announce they are re-boarding the original plane, takes another 45 minutes to board the plane, then we are told two separate issues caused this lengthy delay one was a filter in the bathroom and the other was a thermostat... seems like very basic standard maintenance issues that could have been avoided with routine checks. We were offered zero compensation, the trip took over 6 hours in all to fly from Philadelphia PA to Boston MA; a trip I could have driven in less time. I continue to have issues with American Airlines and "mechanical" delays, the last flight i was on From Charlotte to Baltimore was delayed an hour due to a strap in the cargo area. I don't understand the logic behind the decisions made to hold the full plane over 5 hours instead of taking a 45 minute flight, but I will say the crew was very apologetic and handled the situation well."
Pros: "Once seated flight was pleasant & arrived to our destination 20 min early."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been more attentive to boarding customers. They were serving drinks to first class, talking in the aisles, did not move when you were trying to get in your seat. Too much commotion going on while boarding and it became frustrating."
Cons: "I realize there is no beverage service on this flight . However, I was greatly surprised when attendant walked through cabin with a tray of water to wash down the biscotti she had passed out . Water was room temperature in a plastic cup . Not what I was expecting . I guess it's the thought that counts ,"
Cons: "Seats need to be bigger (wider)"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Amazing experience"
Cons: "No, everything was perfect"
Pros: "The attendants were amazing, fun, attentive and provided for a very quick four-hour trip!"
Cons: "Not one thing."

Pros: "I liked the extensive entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t like that for about 10 hours there is no meal service."
Pros: "Crew was great, and boarding was a breeze."

Cons: "Smaller seats"
Pros: "All was good. Flight attendants helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Well organized."
Pros: "a little bit more foot-room than my previous flight on a different airline."
Cons: "The plane got delayed by more than 3 hours!"
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "Everything else. I flew from PHL to IAH and was very unhappy with the experience. The gate agents were unfriendly. The bag check agents downstairs were unfriendly. I had two separate phone calls with United a week prior to the flight to understand and confirm the bag policy. This was AFTER booking my flight so they knew upfront I bought a basic economy ticket. After my first call, I understood a personal item would be free and I would be able to pay for my carry on bag, but only within 24 hours prior to the flight. I made a second call to be absolutely sure the previous agent gave me the correct information and pricing. So I paid the $25 for my carry on, checked in online, and waited at the gate while boarding at the very end because I was basic economy. They did not let me board with my bag. They requested another $50 to check my carry on with them or I would be rebooked. I struggled to afford the flight, let alone the carry on fee I had paid in advance. I literally did not have the money, and even if I had the cash, they only accept plastic. What blew me away was they weren't asking me to check my carry on because of the size. But because of my basic economy ticket, aka, the N fare. Despite checking with two employees by phone after buying my ticket and paying for a carry on in advance, there is a rule in place that states "if you have purchased Basic Economy, you will only be allowed one personal item, unless you are a Premier member or a primary card member using a qualifying MileagePlus credit card." Therefore, there is no alternative. You are a second class citizen; a no good deplorable, when you buy this ticket and there is nothing you can do to upgrade it. Only the "premier" passengers have the right to bring a carry on aboard even if you think you're paying for the privelage. What I was expected to somehow understand after asking two United employees prior if I could purchase the right to bring a carry on bag aboard, was to CHECK my CARRY ON downstairs or learn the hard way. Wow. What a ruthless way to learn this lesson. I waited 7 more hours to board the next available flight. What a nightmare. I thought I had did the appropriate research necessary and planned in advance to avoid these situations. Checking in online and contacting customer service prior is no longer the convenience it used to be. Even if you've done your research, bring additional funds with you. Even if you check in online and have a digital boarding pass, always check in with a real human prior to entering the TSA security line. A side note, United is trying to save money while "speeding up" the process by forcing you to use a computer to hand over your checked luggage. Speaking with a human now is a monumental struggle."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so got to sit w/o middle seat psgr."
Cons: "UA app for in flight movie kept losing contact or sound."
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: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Cons: "Just give free wi fi already"
Cons: "I didn't realize how you can no longer be accommodated without being charged for everything."
Pros: "My flight stopped for over 2 hours for refueling which caused me to miss my coneccting flight, plus 2 other reschedual flights. Then no one would accomodate me on account of this. Never flying united again"
Pros: "All good, no complaints!"
Cons: "Hour late taking off and customer service terribleness!"
Pros: "The incoming plane was delayed due to 'equipment prep'. Since it was connecting me to my longer leg, I was nervous. The crew did a great job of deplaning everyone and getting the plane ready for our flight with very minimal delay."
Cons: "It was a quick 30 minute flight and everything was fine."
Pros: "The seats and the price"
Cons: "How far back I was"
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Pros: "Drinks and cookies were good. On-flight attendants were polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours at night due to repairs. Luckily, they placed me in a hotel. However, it was probably the worst hotel that I have every stayed (uncomfortable bed, bad pillows, smokey smell, etc.). The next morning while boarding, the gate attendant was extremely rude and unprofessional. I will spend a little extra to not fly with United if possible."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Tv"
Cons: "The tv kept shutting on and off"
Pros: "Free beverage and snack. Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Sat inside the airplane for more than an hour! It was horrible. Why have the customers board the aircraft when crew members know that we're going to be delayed due to weather?! Ridiculous."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Pros: "Seats are comfy"
Cons: "Food service sucks"
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Cons: "My connection to YYZ was cancelled and I was not even rebooked to the next flight. I needed to buy a ticket on Air Canada in order to get there. Every time I fly United I find myself asking "why in the hell am I flying United?""
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Very delayed flight No updates for departure, empty desk until it was time to depart, for why we sat on the runway for so long, no update on landing time or that we were starting descent"
Cons: "I didn't like that on the way to Philly I could watch movies on my device, but on the way back I would have had to pay to use the seat-back system."
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "On time bags made connection"
Pros: "Crew very friendly!"
Cons: "No entertainment (video screens ) on board flight."
Pros: "The boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "The passengers behind me had a baby on board that cried throughout the whole flight."
Pros: "Friendly service, nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The seat cushions were in terrible condition!!!"
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
Cons: "I paid for my luggage in advance and when I arrived at Philly airport it was not acknowledged"
