Pros: "the flight crew made our flight very comfortable and pleasant. One flight attendant ( didn't spot her name) had such a gentle sense of humour while serving us-it was nice. Flight attendants at times seem like strict teachers - so it was nice to smile and laugh - especially now with such fear of flying due to COVID-19"

Cons: "Tiny seats with limited legroom. No entertainment provided."

Pros: "Very attentive, friendly and efficient flight attendant. Smooth flight. Informative captain."

Cons: "Cramped seats entertainment"

Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "People get shocked from the rush of air soon after they board and close their air knobs overhead. The cabin was filled with lots of new bodies that had different ordour and perfume that it was good to have a strong ventilation but due to the strong air flow... Perhaps tell ppl to keep it open."

Pros: "All good and short flight"

Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose a seat"

Pros: "The crew went out of his way to help us!"

Cons: "For customers without hand held devices, there are no options for in-flight entertainment."

Cons: "Lavatory was too small"

Pros: "Direct from Orlando to London!"
Cons: "Coming home to the cold"

Pros: "The pilots made the trip in great time. The landing was good."
Cons: "We were told we could board the flight, then when we got to the steps in the cold and dark we were sent back.The staff were not very friendly with the customers somewhat superficial, but with each other it was like they were at a party. Not impressed by the 2 young women."

Pros: "very organized crew. everything ran soothly and on time. crew was polite to parents with children on board"
Cons: "how quick it was over!"

Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above please"

Pros: "Upbeat crew!"
Cons: "Leaving from the basement of YYC airport"

Cons: "LATE TAKING OFF FROM WPG BY 90 MINUTES -- SEE ABOVE COMMENT -- YOUR SURVEY SHOULD NOT ASK ABOUT TWO FLIGHTS IN THE SAME EMAIL!"

Pros: "I’ve always liked WestJet and it’s services. They are my always my first airline I go to check flights."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "There was no entertainment for those of us without a compatible mobile/tablet device (I have a Nokia, therefore can't access the app). As always no complimentary meal but that's becoming a norm in most companies - strange how the prices don't really go down though... Seats were hard and unconfortable"

Pros: "WestJet’s checkin online system is very quick, which save a lot of time. It’s so much better than air Canada in any aspects"
Cons: "There is no entertainment in the plane"

Pros: "Delayed 2hours 30 min"
Cons: "Never flying with wast jets any more"

Pros: "Westjet service"
Cons: "Calgary International airport is one of worst airports in north america. Sad how badly planned a new airport could be."

Pros: "I like West Jet over all and it is my preferred airline, as it flies direct between most cities I need to visit. The price is decent and the majority of time the in flight staff are reasonable. I had another flight recently where they were excellent."
Cons: "The flight attendants were a little dour. Whether due to the time of flight or that they were leaving Orlando, I don't know, but I was expecting a little more cheer or at least positivity from them. Also the flight was "running low" on drinks and so I they only came through the cabin once to offer soft drinks, which I needed as I had still to catch a red eye and function during my layover. I wasn't pleased with them. Lastly the West Jet connect app worked just fine for my ipad but despite advertising my wife was unable to get it to work on her computer (mac) despite multiple attempts. If TVs are no longer going to be standard on planes someone needs to be present to help with I.T. when the system isn't working as advertised."

Cons: "I will say our flight took of a bit late which was a bother so late at night."

Pros: "Everything was very streamlined, from boarding to landing."

Pros: "There is a AC concent for charge."

Pros: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"

Pros: "I got to my destination with relatively no hassle and the crew were friendly and the coffee was good."
Cons: "There was NO entertainment at all.. no radio.. no movies.. no music channels nothing.. the fliplane did have WiFi.. but the catch was the WestJet app needs to be pre-downloaded. I’m"

Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."

Pros: "STAFF WAS GREAT"
Cons: "CHECK IN OVERHEAD BIN RULES NOT ENFORCED-NO ROOM FOR MY ONE PIECE"

Pros: "... He was calm, comfortable, and extremely witty.... with a great sense of humour regarding Toronto’s weather in comparison to Curaçao’s. Going home after an awesome vacation always sucks but with WestJet and it’s fabulous crew on board, the transition back to reality really isn’t so bad."
Cons: "The plane was old... no tv screens to see the flight stats like altitude and location. I had a window seat and bought a couple of Ceasar’s so it all worked out just fine.... at the end of the day"

Cons: "Liked it better with in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Everything mostly went smoothly."

Pros: "Food and crew excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process delayed as groups 3-6 all lined up together. No air at seats"

Pros: "Movies I could plug in and go to sleep"
Cons: "Being woke up and asked if I want something to eat. I am sure others would disagree but I was exhausted and could not go back to sleep and I had already been up 30 hours."

Cons: "The flight and crew were very good. An hour late taking off with not explanation. Frustrating on an hour flight."

Cons: "That it was cramped. I was on a 4seat row, aisle, but I had the man next to me encroaching on my leg and arm space"

Pros: "Issues caused by weather, otherwise flight was fine."

Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"

Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."

Pros: "Very confusing. United personnel running Air Canada ground operations. Took 30 plus minutes to check one bag because there were not enough staff checking passengers in. Then flight was supposed to be delayed 90 minutes. This meant missing connections so automatic rebooking took place. Flight was then not delayed and had to rebook on original flight. Naturally bag didn't make the trip."

Cons: "The flight was overbooked and I was forced to take a different flight. Ruined my plans in Edmonton that day. Last time I use air Canada."

Cons: "Did not reimburse new arrangements. Missed connection due to flight delays on Air Canada's behalf."

Cons: "I had to delay my whole trip one day as the fight was late by 5 hours. I had made specific plans to reach delhi on April 21. Since I am a physician, it wasn't easy to arrange coverage so I could make it to delhi for a particular event. And this delay in flight was a major disappointment and made all the effort futile."

Pros: "Very good !"

Cons: "Delays and 24 hour layover."

Pros: "Service and comfort. Friendly and responsive staff"

Cons: "Pearson airport transfer was hellish. I felt like I walked five miles between flights, and then had to go through the whole security process again, causing a missed second flight. This transfer of flights was not booked with sufficient time between them given the long distance walked and the slow security process. I will avoid this airport in the future"

Pros: "The entertainment system was fine as far as selection goes."
Cons: "The stewardesses were slow in doling out beverages, so much so that they didn't even get half the plane. As well as I was told they don't do free snacks on the linger flights and this being a shorter flight and should have therefore given out pretzels or whatever."

Pros: "the flight was quick and the plane was comfortable"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Small legroom, kinda hot inside the plane"

Cons: "it was a horrible experience and i will never fly with air canada again. best of luck"

Pros: "We had to book our son on a flight from Phila to Toronto unexpectedly. We had lost our car keys in Canada and had no way to get new ones. (That's a long and complicated story.) our only option was to fly our son up with the spare key. Luckily he had just gotten his passport. He got a window seat and lived the adventure. The crew couldn't have been nicer."

Pros: "I thought the service was excellent."
Cons: "There were some delays taking off, but I don't think it had to do with the airline"

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "We did have a 30 minute delay, not a big deal but a delay none the less. And boarding was a bit of a mess as announcements were hard to hear."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "My flight was comfortable and without any issues. Good was great. The inflight entertainment should have more choices."

Pros: "The flight is not packed, so rather comfortable"

Cons: "My Mon couldn't fly because I never have noticed that she needed a Canadian Visa. She came from Mexico with her American visa and the experience buying a ticket with this airline was a nightmare."

Pros: "Space wine s"
Cons: "When service came to 40 they barely had anything but snacks. Long flight and only one round of service seems scanty. Flight half over when they came by. Difficult impossible to lower arm in middle seats"

Pros: "I liked the choice of movies."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants, Pasquale, was very brusque."

Pros: "It got me on the way"
Cons: "An outlet and letting me get into Canada"

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "It would have been nice to depart within an hour of my original time."

Cons: "The plane was extremely full. No chance of social distancing."

Cons: "Seats need to be bigger (wider)"

Pros: "Without asking, the crew arranged to have my partner and I sit next to each other. That was such a pleasant touch of service for our trip. Also, the connection was perfectly timed at Chicago flying to Bozeman."

Pros: "The text messages from United"

Pros: "First flight I’ve been on where United airlines has adequate leg room for a tall person. A newish airbus plane. I’ve been avoiding United for a number of years cause their planes tend to be very uncomfortable for taller passengers. This is the seat spacing that all airlines should have."

Pros: "Empty plane personal seating everyone"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The attendants were amazing, fun, attentive and provided for a very quick four-hour trip!"
Cons: "Not one thing."

Cons: "Delay for 3 hours"

Pros: "Crew was great, and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "For the price, there should be better food, and a bit more breathing room."

Pros: "Crew was helpful and everything went as planned"
Cons: "Smaller seats"

Pros: "My father passed away earlier that day and I needed a ticket quickly to fly home. At the airport I was a mess and the airline counter attendant was so amazing helping me ( I had never flown United and had no idea about their luggage policies ect..). She quickly pulled me aside.. helped me with checking in and did her best to fine me another seat thatvwas better than the one I had already chosen.Also, she gave me a hug and her condolences. Flying with an airline that has heart helped me so much during one of the most difficult times of my life. I will absolutely fly with them again."
Cons: "No complaints ... but I paid for a movie to take my mind off of my father's passing during the flight and there was a short in my monitor for our whole row. It kept cutting in and out and "searching for signal", I only was able to see 1/4 of the movie I paid for with all the interruptions in signal."

Pros: "The people were all very nice. The plane was top-notch. Would definitely fly with them again if I had the opportunity."
Cons: "The boarding lasted much longer than I had anticipated. I was also not informed of when my group was boarding at the proper time."

Pros: "a little bit more foot-room than my previous flight on a different airline."

Pros: "The stroopwaffles were a tasty treat. The flight was well managed and crew was attentive and professional. I never have problems with United and like how pilots keep us informed with when to expect turbulence. The first hour through storms was a bit scary. T.v. on the seats was a good feature but I didn't order anything."
Cons: "I put my phone in the pocket in front of me and when I took it out it was sticky with gum someone put in there. Inevitably crew can't check every pocket and nook for gum or garbage from previous travelers. I don't blame them. We almost were asked to leave the flight bc it was overbooked by 2 seats. Made me a bit nervous when we walked by check-in and they pointed out we were a traveling pair. Lucky there were a few others"

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: "It had movie screens quite old but better than none"

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: "Stewardess was nice"
Cons: "Delayed, then when we got here no lanes to land. Seats are way to small for normal sized people."

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: "service on time"
Cons: "snacks very little amounr"

Pros: "I fly weekly, but try never to book United because there are always issues with my support animal. Without fail, regardless of the city, the agents at check-in do not know what to do. Each time I'm met with annoyance at having to check me in, and I usually end up calling either the disabilities desk and handing the agent my phone, or asking for the CRO. I have to leave an extra 45 minutes to accommodate flying United every time -- ridiculous. This time I also got a load of unprofessional gate agents cooing and awwing at my my support animal, and trying to pet him. When this happens I always simply state, "please don't" and this was key with rudeness as well. United please provide us with more professional and adequately trained staff at the airports. Once we're on the planes it's fine. But you seem to have VERY low hiring standards for airport staff"

Pros: "From check-in to touchdown, my travel over this Christmas was awesome! Flights were on time, security ran smoothly, and I would use Kayak again for sure."

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: "United, as always, was professional and efficient. Once I was able to find the information from price line for my check in, everything went smoothly. I was impressed that the airline sent an email suggesting a change of itinerary due to weather in Chicago, and waived change fees to facilitate this. I got home without cancelled or delayed flights."
Cons: "The kayak to price line to united interface led to communication breakdown. I received no notice to check in for my departing flight, and had to dig through several messages and 2 websites to find the appropriate confirmation number. It should be clearer who you are actually purchasing from, and there should be better fail-safes in place to prevent loss of information"

Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and attentive to my needs. I like good service and friendliness so for this experience I give 5 stars"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable in my seat but that's expected on an airplane"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"

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: "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: "The crew was nice and great with the three very young kids sitting in front of me. Left and landed on time!"
Cons: "Very cramped seating. The on flight entertainment kept searching for a satillite signal, only ever staying on for 30 seconds before searching for the next 3 minutes."

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: "First leg delayed on Tarmac for over an hour so I missed my connection. Then united rebooked me for the next day but gave me no voucher or money towards a hotel so I had to get one myself since it was all night in the Houston airport.mthem the rebooked flight had mechanical problems we had to change airplanes, and gates/terminals and were delayed another 2.5 hours. It was terrible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to fuel issue. Missed connecting flight and was put in economy when I paid for first class."

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?""

Cons: "Either ran out of or no snacks offered. Crew seemed a little impatient"

Cons: "Where do I start. Let's start with booking and the lack of knowledge, inability to listen and respond in an appropriate manner, and the fact that after I asked to speak to a manager due to the previous issues with the agent, and after being transferred all I needed was some understanding and support due to a family emergency and instead I get a short rude push back and then hung up on by the manager after I expressed my struggle and desperation for help. The lack of empathy and just the overall experience was beyond horrible, and if it wasn't for the desperate situation I was in I would have never used your services."

Pros: "On time bags made connection"

Pros: "It was a light flight, so I could have my carry-on with me even though I was in group 5. The breakfast -- berry pecan French toast -- was surprisingly tasty and satisfying (if not very attractively presented)."
Cons: "Too bad I had to pay so much for the exit row seat. I'm tall and it's needed for standard comfort (as opposed to extra comfort). Oh well. Gotta squeeze those dollars out of the passengers every way they can."

Pros: "Got me safely to my destination. Other passengers were friendly and helpful. Sf and Vic airports nice. flight attendants passably pleasant. No food that I was aware of. Entertainment at least there was a wifi option since there were no screens."
Cons: "Check in agents all might as well have been robots, but with bad attitude. Even at the star alliance gold checkin desk the agent was clearly unhappy/furious (seem to be ongoing issues with the system/ machine frustrating him) and was consistently abrupt and cold though our interaction. He did help by lifting bags onto weigh and to press buttons to get the tickets issued, but I would have a much better experience of United if he has shown any sign of warmth or even smiled. I was struggling with a baby in a carrier, and several suitcase, and he didn't show any sign of humanity. The guy who labeled our bags was a bit nicer. The team overal though just barked instructions at the customers, never looked them in the eyes, and seemed to all hate their jobs. We got our boarding passes issues successfully, yes, but I felt on pins and needles like I had to be very careful not to offend anyone.... Which I don't think is what you want your passengers to feel at the start of a flight."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew was competent."
Cons: "United charges you extra for everything. Economy is uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "My first time flying through United and I am dissapointed my flight was delayed over 6 hours and we get no refund for that? Really United? Aren't you suppose to be a top airline for a reason. Never again"

Pros: "Departures and arrivals were on time. Boarding was efficient. Baggage arrived in claim area quickly. No stress or hassle."

Pros: "The flight staff were courteous."
Cons: "The seats were too tight I was squished to the window by big person next to me and the person front of me reclined to tighten up the space more. My seat could not recline"
