The plane was delayed then they tried to go on time. We sat 40 minutes on the plane waiting for the luggage to be loaded. The plane left an hour late. We were in the air less than 20 minutes and we turned around and came back to the airport. The only thing good that happened was they found another plane. We reboarded and sat and waited for the luggage again. We got to Tampa at12:15pm. We were up at 2:55 am. Then at Tampa we waited waited for our luggage. I will say the luggage did make it. I fully expected it not to. Long day.
Pros: "The crew was amazing and helpful, the plain was clean and pleasant flight"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Our sector FA was phenomenal"
Cons: "The Southwest cattle car boarding and open seating policies are horrendous. The fact that there is no business class or first class seating for status members is an abomination.

Pros: "Easy smooth flight."
Cons: "Seats barely recline. No charging station"

Cons: "No WiFi so no free tv"
Pros: "The crew was adequate, reasonable friendly."
Cons: "The seats on this Southwest plane were significantly narrower than on our outbound flight. Thus, this was an uncomfortable flight for over 3 hours. We were delayed 40 minutes apparently due to a need for oil. Seemed like a long time for such maintenance."
Cons: "The process of rescheduling our flights to compensate for your faulty equipment."

Pros: "It was a very smooth flight"
Cons: "It left late"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding and storage of carry on was a snap."

Pros: "like the flight, all where well except I was sitting somewhere else, I was traveling with my wife. Jose"
Pros: "No extra fees."
Cons: "Checked in well ahead of time and got a C boarding group. Got to the gate with plenty of time, but by the time I boarded, I had to gate check my carry-on and squeeze into a middle seat in the very back row. Closer proximity to strangers for three hours than I usually feel comfortable being to my closest loved ones."
Pros: "Short Flight"
Cons: "Even though the plane was sitting there ready to board both ways they took their time and we ended up 22 mins late on the way over and 15 mins back. They started the boarding so late there was no way to leave on time either direction."

Cons: "The seats have changed. They are narrower in width, the knee room is less, the staff while still professional is more serious, not as fun and friendly. Spicy snacks and peanuts are limited. Cookies go better with tea and coffee on the late night flights."
Pros: "Personnel always seem friendly on Southwest"
Cons: "Can't get better in the first 60 seating positions even if you click in exactly 24 hours ahead"
Pros: "On time, comfortable and friendly service."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Gate was overflowing with 2 flights waiting. Perhaps southwest should rent another gate or two at PIT airport. This is not the first time. Seems like gate overcrowding is now standard practice for southwest. Also, flight was delayed because gate is overcrowded. I used to love SW Air because they were on time. No weather delay. Just scheduling at gate."

Pros: "Great service, the crew members where awesome! They inform every change and carefully instructive!"
Cons: "The delay in the flight!"
Cons: "How come none of your entertainment systems work? Also - not the day to train new personnel when you are behind. That was irresponsible and more stressful than it ever needed to be. It is completely Jet Blue's fault if people missed their connection due to your inefficiency."

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew attitude was totally professional"

Cons: "We were originally scheduled for a 9 pm flight but it was changed 2 weeks in advance to 10 pm. This made our night flight less desirable but we could not change the fight without penalty. The plane was actually delayed an additional 1/2 hour making our night quite miserable. These changes and delays are more than just an agravation for someone travelling with a service dog"
Pros: "Staff, frequent snacks,"
Pros: "Friendly and relaxed service, healthy and nourishing snacks, on time arrival and departure, great communication throughout. I love Jet Blue!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Do too a mechanical problem the original plane was replaced with another. The entire crew was excellent."

Pros: "The place took off on time, arrived early even with deicing. It was a really nice ride."
Cons: "Delay 3 hrs on runway. Lack of communication. Personal medical issues put in harms way. No tv."
Cons: "Let me preface this by saying that prior to this experience I generally though highly of JetBlue. To change my opinion of them, JetBlue had to monumentally screw up, which they did. This was the worst experience I have had on any airline, ever. Why I am mad: - I had a 4.5 hour delay due to maintenance that caused me to miss a flight to India. The 4.5 delay was on a 50 minute flight from Portland, ME to JFK. I nearly could have driven faster than JetBlue got me to New York. - Because of my missed flight to India, I missed day 1 of a two day wedding of which I am a wedding party member - In order to get to India in time for day 2, I had to book a new flight on a different airline for an additional $1000, on top of what I paid for my original flight to India - I was originally told by JetBlue in Portland, ME that they would offer me a reimbursement for the Portland flight, a hotel in NYC, and a travel credit for the trouble. While not totally satisfying since I was still going to miss a day of the wedding, I thought this to be a fair enough offer. - However, at the JetBlue desk in JFK, they completely reversed course. I was told that all they could offer me $100 travel credit. No reimbursement for Portland flight. No compensation for the extra $1,000 flight I had to book. And best of all, no hotel in New York, I was stranded at JFK for the night. I spoke with a supervisor at the desk who repeatadely told me that JetBlue had done their job in getting me to JFK and that they were not responsible for anything after I arrived to JFK. A 4.5 hour delay on a 50 minute flight is bad. Being steadfastly unwilling to compensate for missed flights is worse. And stranding me in JFK after telling me they would offer me a hotel room is just plain unacceptable. My family will be cancelling their JetBlue credit cards and we will look elsewhere for flights in the future."
Pros: "In flight tv was great."
Cons: "The cabin was about 85 degrees the entire flight. They ran out of water and the crew was not very friendly."
Pros: "Crew seemed nice."
Cons: "The entertainment sucked, couldn't even turn on the TV. Whole row was nothing but white static."
Flight was on time. Boarding was relatively fast and the crew very pleasant. The plane was new and clean. Snack was O. K. , fine for a 2hr. Flight. 👍👍
Cons: "Great crew and flight! Cheers!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and short"
Cons: "The entertainment system kept resetting over and over throughout the flight. And drinks were served late in a not so comfortable temperature cabin. But everything else was ok"
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."
Pros: "Food selection, service, and variety of entertaining entertainment options."
Cons: "More leg room for economy."
Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."
Pros: "Better than spirit"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Very late and boarded too long before leaving the gate."
Pros: "Quick boarding, extra space to put things in front of you"
Pros: "Great leg room"
Cons: "I was next to an obese person who literally took half of my seat. That was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "All things connected to the flight were just right"
Cons: "Nothing was an issue."
Cons: "They ran out of blankets, earphones on the flight"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
Pros: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"
Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"
Pros: "On time. Connecting through Atlanta is quick and efficient"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight attendants were very nice and professional."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out."

Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No opportunity to purchase additional food"
Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"
Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"
Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."
Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be. Even though they didn't have much info about the delay, they answered questions and stayed calm."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
Pros: "Was a nice flay , thanks"
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."
Pros: "Everything else good."
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Pros: "Gate crew did a good job, passed out snacks and drinks with delay"
Cons: "Lot's of upset people worrying about connections"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
Cons: "No entertainment and only pretzel and peanuts available"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged(torn through!)"
Seats are so close together. Middle seats should be discounted.
Unfriendly check in staff
I liked the direct flight from ORD-RSW. The plane was relatively new, clean, and in good shape. I didn’t like the two hour delay or the waiting an hour after we landed for my checked luggage. After a scheduled landing of 7:50 PM we didn’t head to our car until after 11 PM.
The airlines have stepped up their game. Our travels with American Airlines was great. They are trying hard to make it easier on travelers
Pros: "Plane wasn’t full and left and arrived early!"
Cons: "Offering some kind of beverage"
Cons: "No snacks even for 1st class."

Cons: "Flight currently delayed 3 hours! No help booking another flight or compensation or way of getting back to NYC in time."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats could be a bit wider"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They didn't tell us it was delayed until 2 hours before the flight, by which time we were already at the airport. They first delayed it 1 1/2 hours and then another 30 minutes every half hour. The airline/crew never even acknowledged the delay or apologized for it."
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Easier option for entertainment."
Cons: "More seat room side to side"
Cons: "If we were able to have made the flight"

Cons: "Bumpy ride in CLT but uncontrollable"
Pros: "WiFi was on the flight. Free with TMobile."
Cons: "Easy and fast flight"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment so 1 star rating. Kind passenger switched seats so I could sit with my husband and son. Would have had to sit behind them if not for her. Paying extra for isle seats was a surprise."
Cons: "Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years."
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away."
Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."
Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."
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."
Pros: "our flight were on time. Staff was very helpful, I walk with aid of a cane."
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Cons: "Not good movie available"
Cons: "Read my review of my denver to dallas amd youll understand.."
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."
Cons: "My flight date was changed because of a medical issue with my grandson, and I was outraged by the amount of the change fee."
Cons: "I never even made the flight because they kept jerking us around"
Cons: "Uncomfortable; charged $50 for checking bags only to see them checked for others for free at the gate. Seat selection on our three flights that day were ignored on 2 of tge floghts."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "We had to sit on the tarmac and deplane just to get onto another flight where I no longer had any power to charge my devices"
Pros: "Snacks and movies"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating in light of the maintenance delay. Especially for those of us with small children."
Cons: "Look, delays suck. We fly about only once a year, and we ALWAYS have a delay. ALWAYS. Air traffic control at Newark will delay a flight for a hangnail."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "This is a small airplane. I would like to see United insist that people check large bags."
Pros: "I reached home"
Cons: "The WORST leg room in economy The WORST entertainment in economy The WORST customer service in economy The WORST food in economy. And I'm companring with other US carriers (American, Jet Blue, Delta, Southwest) -- NOT even international carriers."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled again and again then call customer service but he doesn’t know anything about information. Totally ruined my day"
Pros: "On time, smooth and lots of cabin space for my carried on."
Cons: "United should have allowed the super-economy ticket holder to check in online get my boarding pass especially I didn’t have any bag to check in. I was almost late for my plane because counter assistance is needed in my case, while there was no counter for NO-bag check-in. The kiosk rejected my check-in as well as online check-in. It was confusing and frustrating; I felt like the United Airline did that on purpose to deter the super-economy ticket buyer. Please be aware of time to take to check in with NO BAG with Super-Economy ticket at EWR."
Pros: "It was a satisfying experience with United Airline from ABE shuttle bus ride (I said Shuttle) to EWR, and short plane ride to PBI. Excellent food selections at terminal C."
Cons: "Too bad the DD at the terminal didn’t accept ordering via DD App."
Pros: "An early departure!"
Pros: "Nothing was good about this airline with the exception of the baggage crew that finally helped me in Washington Ronald Regan Airport"
Cons: "My flight out of Portland was canceled and it took hours to rebook. I had to fly American Airline to Washington DCA where I roamed the airport at 9pm looking for someone from United. The crew in Portland ME told me the gate person would have a hotel for me.... The baggage crew had to help me."
Cons: "I only made it as far as Chicago, and my bag was fairly comprehensively lost as I did so"
Cons: "This particular flight had little leg room for me (6 ft tall). Also, my wife had to check her carry on but on the prior flight she did not. I would prefer never checking bags."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Distance between gates"
Pros: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."
Pros: "First time first class flyer. It was great!"
Cons: "Being separated from my wife in seating when we booked before others that we talked to!"
Pros: "The flight attendants. Especially Meagan and Heather. Amber was a,sweetheart too. I had the same attendants 3 out of 4 of my flights that weekend. So cool. When they realized it was me again they spoiled me rotten. So good I feel like unless I have those 3 as my attendants I won't fly United again"
Cons: "No food options. No free food"
Cons: "Really awful, disorganized and unapologetic."
Pros: "Got through sucurity ar PNR barely in time to make flight."
Cons: "Even though I am a frequent flyer with a Global Access card, I was select for enhanced security check. I paid for the Global Accessmcard especially sofas to avoid this. United said it was a TSA thing while TSA said it was at the prerogative of the airline. Why did this happen? So much for TSA Pre or Global Access."
Pros: "we were on time, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Boarding goes from the front of the plane to the back. When you're sitting towards the back, it's not ideal to have to trip over fellow passengers who are already seated in the front. Why not board from the back to the front like other airlines?"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "The plane dropped during decent."
Pros: "Staff on and off plane were pleasant and went out of their way to accommodate."
Cons: "Plane malfunction delayed flight two hours"

Pros: "The crew was nice and the area was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that before boarding they offered to check peoples bags for free because so many people were trying to take ridiculous sized bags onto the plane. I always pay to check my bag . That process took for ever but we did still arrive on time."
Pros: "We stood in line forever to then be told the clerk couldn't ch we ck us in. When we tried the kiosk it didn’t work. Long story short we missed our flight due to their poor organization of the line and crowd."
Cons: "The confusion caused by lack of direction from the staff."
Pros: "No delays."
Cons: "Entertainment was close to none."
Cons: "Seating next to the bathroom is gross"

Pros: "Couldn't really figure out your Wi-Fi system so I just read a book"
Cons: "It's not really easy to set up your Wi-Fi system through the United app"
Pros: "Every thing about United this trip , from the efficiency of the gate to the flight itself , I upgraded to first class this trip due to an injury , I never said a word but the staff noticed I was in distressed and I couldn't help but notice how accommodating the entire crew was concerned for my comfort and were on point , also at the same time if I was trying to sleep no one bothered me until I was awake and looking around"
Cons: "Nothing , the Captain was able to find a better route then suggested because of hurricane Mathew ,, we landed earlier than expected from departure"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. Seats are very small. Snacks were ridiculously small."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Flight was as smooth as glass; great on time for departure and arrival."
Cons: "Did not give senior citizens who needed it any extra time to board; only disabled people. Free snack portion was extra stingy. Other airlines we fly moffer more than one tiny package! One of our party had a seat (aisle) that he could not move in once seated. Free entertainment was very stingy! Other airlines offer much more free entertainment in the way of TV."
Pros: "They got me there"
Cons: "The seats gave me a backache. The entertainment system made you pay to even hear news or track the flight. The screen was so close you couldn't really watch"
Pros: "That I got a refund, although that should be a given"
Cons: "Had to purchase new flight day of, as I was told of flight cancellation 5 hours before leaving to the airport. I then had to spend $500 on a new flight, and one of the connections refused to let me on the plane. Stil not home."
Cons: "My seat was broken could not recline"
Pros: "made good time."
Cons: "they lost our luggage on the way back,Didn't make it to Portland. But it was brought to our house at 7:45. I think for 1600.00 for tickets you should provide pretzels. That would be great. Thanks"
Cons: "Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights"
Cons: "Tried to get assistance at the United desk where my gate was located at and they could not answer any of my questions and would not assist me or many others who had the same issues."
Cons: "Payed to upgrade seat was not comfortable and person next to me kept moving onto my side. Flight was 2 hours late so I missed my connection and had a terrible time to find a flight home. United staff was not helpful and kept telling me to go somewhere else for help. No food was served only tiny packet of way too spicy pretzels. Sat on the runway for an hour. Flight crew said 15 min and it was much longer. Crew seemed to be really confused."
Pros: "The crew communicated well to the passengers."
Cons: "I didn't get to Chicago until close to midnight, the flight to MSP was cancelled, and I missed my meeting the next morning. I understand you can't control the weather, but that didn't change the outcome for me."
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Passengers space is insanely small, staff work under restrictive conditions"
Cons: "The flight was over two hours delayed and every twenty minutes we found out it was delayed another 30 minutes. The crew was terrible. There was no beverage service, and when I asked for a blanket at the beginning of the flight the crew didn't give it to me for over 2 hours. The crew was also very rude in general. There was no entertainment of any kind. The pilots kept pushing back the time we were taking off every 15 minutes and kept changing the arrival time drastically. Overall, horrendous experience."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Weather wasn't great at takeoff but we arrived safely and all necessary precautions were taken."
Cons: "While waiting to take off we were delayed taking off due to a closed runway. The captain was making announcements over a PA system that didn't work, so we really had no idea why we were driving around in circles. Wifi was expensive. When my 2 hours ran out, I had no warning and lost a page of work I had not saved."
