Cons: "Perfect flight, plus flight attendant gave me a free glass of wine! J was friendly and cracked up when young passenger said he deserved a free beer. Probably had a SW free beverage ticket! On time! No wait gate in Ontario! Great landing!"

Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "In wheelchair and needed assistance boarding. In fact there were 3 of us and no assistance. They started boarding others and then that made it difficult to board. I felt neglected and in everyone's way. No food available on flight to purchase. Because of time difference, after landing and customs check, I was hungry but didn't think I had enough time to get anything. If I had known the plane was delayed, I would have gotten something to take on board. I arrived at Ontario Airport at 10 45pm which was 12:45pm by my stomachs time and I hadn't eaten anything since lunch."
Pros: "We always like Southwest."
Cons: "We should not have grabbed the first two seats we found (2nd row, with an elderly lady in the aisle seat) because she was a wheelchair passenger and did not want to disembark until everyone was off the plane. We'll know better next time. Other than that - no problems whatsoever."

Pros: "The Southwest crew always seems to be having a good time. Today, they were exceptionally happily as they gave out solar eclipse themed snack packs. I had the chance to fly other airlines recently because Southwest does not fly to the location where I was going, which was a jolting reminder of how much less pleasant other airlines are. Clearly, your company is doing something right."

Cons: "One of the flight attendants was incredibly rude. A real turn off and not something I'm used to with Southwest fights!"
Pros: "Freindly attendants, drinks and snacks clean plane, comfortable seats"

Pros: "Flight was going to be delayed significantly - first by an hour, then eventually almost 4 hours, because the plane coming from Philadelphia was unable to take off. Luckily Southwest got a different plane to take over our route, and we left (more or less) on time. It's nice for once to report an airline completely fixing a delay instead of making the passengers deal with it."

Pros: "I like the new regional jets. Super good experience overall."
Pros: "The lady boarding people was really good. Got people to willingly check bags on a full flight and was positive and friendly."

Pros: "Great crew, 2 drink services"
Pros: "Phone charging outlets, but this is now quite common with international flights."

Cons: "The Wi-Fi was extraordinarily slow. Slower than other flights I have been on. Just seemed old."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was clean and new."
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "More spacing with the whole Covid-19 thing going on"

Cons: "Food options that arent flour carbs or flour carbs."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed this flight because of a delay of my flight on Friday."
Pros: "I got there in one piece."
Cons: "More legroom"
Pros: "Kind crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "The seat was comfy, even though the flight was delayed in takeoff by 45 min. It was nice to hear from the captain. It makes you feel more like you're having a good experience."
Cons: "Delays happen. But snacks offered during a delay known to be longer than 30 min would've made many passengers happier. It's hard to stay happy when other people around you are complaining."
Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The pilot was too aggressive in regards to the take off and landing, landing was way too hard and fast"
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay."
Pros: "Flight, Plane, and Customer Service was incredible. There was a woman at Phoenix Sky Harbor, Michelle, who saved my bacon in a crazy change of flights. THANK YOU MICHELLE!!!"
Cons: "American Airlines texted me at 6 AM saying that my 10 AM flight was cancelled and I had been rebooked for a flight that DEPARTED at 7:35 AM. I was and am livid. Thank goodness everyone at the airport did an incredible job and I made the flight, but what a terrible way to start the trip to Tahiti. I will be using American as a last and final option from now on. Changing flights last minute like that, especially when making an international connection, is hateful. Never again."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "Staff was fantastic"
Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."
Pros: "Excellent and original Japanese foods"
Cons: "Delayed flight, multiple gate changes"
Pros: "Always prefer American air over most other airlines do the service of staff. Thanks for the extra effort."
Pros: "Full flight, crew worked timely"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Good, friendly, efficient service on flight. Cabin crew took special care to arrange for those with on-going flights and tight connections to be accommodated to make these tight connections."
Cons: "Tight seating and aisles."
Pros: "The flight was good crew members was nice and professional."
Pros: "The only reason I was able to make this flight was that it, too, was delayed. We received ZERO notification - as we were running from one plane to another from Concourse A to B - that the Phoenix-LA flight was delayed. I mean how difficult is that to do?"
Cons: "We took off. We landed. We didn't crash. We sat on the runway for nearly an hour. So much fun!"
Pros: "On plane staff was attentive and very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight departure. New norm, being late?"
Cons: "Hot on plane."
Cons: "On the last leg from Abu Dhabi to A'bad, upon boarding the plane, my wife requested the stuardess that she could not order the Vege food online for some strange reasons and that if they can provide it to her, she bluntly refused and said if it wasn't ordered earlier she won't get it. She could have easily said that she will see what can be done. No need to be that rude for a reputable airline staff."
Cons: "Waited an hour in the plane after we landed at lax to get off the plane."
Pros: "My flight was great! Pilot did an amazing smooth landing"
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Cons: "Would at least like a choice of a snack instead of cookies I don't care for."
Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"
Cons: "Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds."
Cons: "Long flight for a short distance. Slow getting people on and off. Delayed on arrival getting to gate and then delays getting people off. Baggage took a long time."
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "The crew and boarding"
Cons: "That the WiFi wasn't free"

Cons: "No entertainment on the flight at all."
Pros: "I'm grateful for Kayak's policy of fully refunding tickets purchased and not used within 24 hours. Were it not for Kayak, I'd be out my money for a flight I couldn't take."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket to attend my cousin's funeral. Sadly, the flight was delayed so far beyond its original departure that I missed his funeral and could not take the flight."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Missing my flight."
Cons: "I didn’t not like being delayed an entire day because they had a problem with my wife’s name in the system"
Pros: "The crew were great, but"
Cons: "the airline had to hold the connecting flight because of gate assignments"
Pros: "Attendents were very nice."
Cons: "Cramped"
Pros: "GOOD JOB BY FLIGHT ATTENDANTS;FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT! I AM A RETIRED AIRLINE PILOT"
Pros: "Crew was trying to do their best and make the poor experience as good as posible woth positive energy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours after we boarded the plains and heading to the runway to take off. We had to return back to gate, sit in our seats for 45 minutes. Then we were told we need to get off plain, and board a new plain at gate 72. There was a miss communication and we had to go to gate 82 instead.... just a horrible experience."
Pros: "It was quiet, staff were chearful!"
Cons: "A little cramped in the middle."
Pros: "Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "Landing early, then sitting on the plane for an hour and a half, which made me miss my connection for the second time in my last two united flights. Being given no assistance in how you rectify my situation and having to figure it out myself, then boarding the next flight late. Recieving no compensation for the inconveniences United caused me on both of the last two flights I've taken with them."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and helpful, I got the window seat and I love that, on and off the plane in record time."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew and service was very nice and pleasant"
Cons: "To hard to use the inflight entertainment from wifi and that it was delayed"
Pros: "Seats have some good cush to them"
Cons: "I specifically bought carry on luggage that meets the standards so that I would not have to go baggage claim as it would weigh heavily on my schedule. As I stood in line and noticed all of the huge "carry on" bags more than 2 I was astounded when the flight attendant said my carry on would have to be loaded with the other luggage. When I offered my rebuke she scolded me and said the luggage would be there before me....how the hell is that supposed to happen? To make matter worse the flight "attendants" stopped serving half way and when they started again I got trapped by the bathroom and did not get back to my seat in time to enjoy a beverage....not that I was offered one."
Pros: "I appreciated that the pilot was very upfront and honest with us about the delayed flights going into San Francisco."
Cons: "My flight got delayed so much that I ended up cancelling my trip."
Pros: "The desk people were nice in Phoenix, AZ"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 6 hours so United rebooked the whole flight, however they made no attempt to inform us before we arrived at the airport. We found out when we arrived to our gate to board. So because we did not know about the delay until the time of boarding, we missed all other flights out because it was 8pm and no more flights could take us to our final destination. We did receive a hotel voucher but we had to pay for a taxi back to the airport as well as we had to pay extra for our car that had been sitting in the airport garage overnight. It should have been $2.50, but because it sat in the garage overnight we had to pay $20."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Boarding on and off was good."
Cons: "The in flight wifi doesnt allow streaming. It was lame and there was no free in flight movies. So other than sleeping or using an app to text there was nothing you could do. In flight wifi isnt worth buying."
Pros: "The employees were kind, considerate and professional."
Cons: "I don't have any complaints at this time"
Pros: "I liked how quick and easy the flight was; from boarding to exiting the plane in SFO."
Cons: "The size of the plane."
Cons: "I decided to take another carrier in the aftermath of United's terrible treatment of paid passengers/customers. United doesn't deserve my business (ever again)."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and good."
Pros: "Everything from boarding to landing was great."
Cons: "Missed connection in sfo. Had to stay overnight in sfo."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I was told it was due to "weather issues", and that i'd more than likely miss my flight, and that there was nothing they could do about it. I ask the guy to print me some sort of itinerary to show my work, and it shows "mechanicall issues", not weather. Confirmed this with their website. I was told I'd probably be arriving in Seattle around 1-1:30AM. By pure chance, my flight from San Fran to Seattle was ALSO delayed (due to a late incoming flight), so I was able to board my original connecting flight. However, this still put me in a bad situation. I use public transportation, which wont be running by the time I arrive. LooKS like I'll be forking out $50+ for an Uber or Lyft home. Thanks, United. I only ever get delays when I fly United."
Pros: "Crew was great, friendly and professional. Landed early which is always a plus."
Cons: "Just wish they'd give you the can, seems cheap, though the snacks are decent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 30 minutes because they couldn't find the flight attendant. The seats were extremely close to each other. And I'm not a very tall and my knees were touching the front of the dead."
Pros: "Anytime things are new, and the basic needs are met for service, I think people will be happy. But! Timing was estimate for an 8:56 arrival and we landed at 8:30, so great timing too."
Cons: "I had to cancel the flight I didn't make it"
Pros: "This was a connecting flight from phx. Delayed in phx and sfo. Boarding was also slow. Employees tired and crabby."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My first leg of flight was delayed two hours and my connecting flight was cancelled. Waiting in line for 3 hours with almost 100 people with NO intervention. This is a joke!"
Pros: "They were helpful about getting me on another flight, however it didn't leave until the next day."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, they wouldn't route me through another airport, nor would they offer me any compensation for the inconvenience and expense of having to be stranded another night.This is why I normally fly Alaska, instead of United. United needs to step up their customer service. I wasn't even given a seat. They said I had to actually go to the airport in order to get a seat. They could've upgraded me, or put me on a direct flight, but no, they didn't."
Pros: "The stewardess at the back on the plane was very friendly."
Cons: "HAHAHAHAHAmuwahahahahahahahaha If it had been a life and death scenario I might not find it all so very humorous. But the fact remains, that you DELAYED MY FLIGHT FOR SEVERAL HOURS, several times in a row, to the point where taking my trip was a pointless endeavor. Ruined plans. Missed exam that was paid for. Spent 5 hours of my life at the airport, luckily came to me senses and decided to go home, go to bed (at 2:30am!!!), and handle cancellation of my flights (that I would no longer be taking) in the morning. UNITED - zero stars. Will never fly you again. Guaranteed."
Pros: "Flight crew keep kind and courteous."
Cons: "Did get to my father's memorial service on time"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "Flight was quite delayed due to WX. But the crew kept us in the loop and negotiated a better slot with the tower."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The a/c on the plain was not very cold and it needs to blow more air"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by more than 3 hours. We had to take another flight."
Cons: "An old plane with only public TV. American crew is not too pleasant compared to the English crew on our other flight"
Cons: "I have alloted enough time for my next flight. Your airline crew in PhX did not extend any help in my problem even i asked them very polity in two instances. For me not to miss my flight i left my baggaes in the conveyor and I have to disturbed my friends in sfo to get my bags. I want to be conunmpensated with your poor service. Im expecting your respond"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Constant ads on the tv"
Cons: "The flight attendant who read aloud the instructions read them terribly"
Cons: "i was a bit stressed given I had a connection and my flight out of Phoenix was about 45 mins delayed. I made the next flight by 15 mins"
Pros: "The only positive was that the seat next to me was empty so I had a little more room."
Cons: "Flight attendants were unpleasant and plane was very dirty. My seat also felt sticky."
Cons: "Called the airlines to cancel only my flight there to SFO but the full reservation was canceled which made me but a new reservation to come back to PHX. Very poorly handled."
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and we landed early. Although there were no entertainment options on the plane besides wifi, I just watched my own shows on the smartphone. The snack that we got was actually not bad."
Cons: "Seat is still a bit small, even with their updated seats that moved the seat pockets to the top. Cushion is hard and became uncomfortable after an hour o so."
Cons: "Delayed 3x for "air traffic control problems" such bullshit. Be honest. Missed a multi million dollar business dinner . Unreal. You'd be surprised how "my flight was delayed" doesn't play in the real world and I don't know why we put up with it from United."
