United staff worked with me to book a round-about itinerary on a different airline that got me to my destination within 8 hours of the original flight. Progress announcements were made at regular, predictable intervals.

My flight was cancelled an hour after scheduled takeoff due to mechanical issues. The plane was actually repaired, but the time it took to do so exceeded the flight crew's hours. I understand the practical implications, but in the moment it did feel maddeningly bureaucratic.

Probably the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Seats are rigid, cannot recline. An 8-hour flight to Europe with decent seats is more tolerable than than my 3.5-hour ride to Cancun. Dare I say it's painful, and I'm not even old!

Basically everything else was awful. The seats were the worst I've ever sat in on an airplane. There was something poking me in the back the entire flight. On an international flight there should be some sort of food options beyond m&m and rice krispy treats.... I ordered one, and they had none left. There wasn't even a magazine for me to look at while on the plane. Really disappointing experience from stem to stern

On time departure, actually got to Cabo early.

The seat in front of mine had a broken reclining lock mechanism and the passenger kept trying to switch from recline to sitting up and it wouldn't latch in the upright position, so he kept jerking the seatback up and down for the entire 4 hour flight. Also the rows were so tight, and seatbacks were so close together, that the reclining seat in front of me was 6 inches from my face.

swift flight so that we could get off of the plane quicker.

getting in and out of the seat was awful. especially when the seat in front is reclined. the armrest on the aisle seat should be able to move up as the others in the row did. the metal underneath the armrest is pretty sharp and jagged, scraped my palm as i was trying to get the seatbelt to buckle.

Our Delta plane was brand spanking new. Everything worked and the inflight entertainment system was fantastic with many movies to choose from, free headphones, games, tv shows, etc. The crew was polite and the seating at least as comfortable as expected for a 4 hour flight.

The restrooms in the rear of the plane were remarkably small, even by airline standards. I'm a somewhat larger person and I fit, but I know a lot of people who would literally not be able to fit on the toilet without touching both of the sidewalls or risk getting stuck in there. The boarding process at San Jose Del Cabo was the most ridiculous setup I've ever experienced. There were numerous flights boarding out of the same gates and at least 3 or 4 lines for different destinations forming on a ramp just outside the gates. There were guys with signs trying to herd people into the correct lines and then loading the people onto buses which took you out to the planes. The planes were loading from both the front and rear doors and people were getting tangled up inside because of the haphazard loading process. Very easy for a person to end up on an incorrect plane!!

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
