Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was on time. They fed us two meals."
Cons: "Seats in coach are incredibly cramped, and blankets are comically small. The food was pretty terrible and the vegetarian option not particularly nutritious."
Pros: "The crew were great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The blankets are really thin and so we were cold. They do not offer eye masks anymore. So sad"
Pros: "Crew was kind & friendly. They found my wife and I empty seats where we could stretch out. Food was great too. No complaints."
Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to London alive. The turbulence was so bad and the pilot never came on and reassured us I was shaking and nervous all the way across the ocean"
Cons: "The boarding issue to me is a big problem you should put the conditions of the ticket up front and center for example boarding last when you are on an international flight with bags that need to be put in the overhead is a big problem having to pay for each seed internationally for each leg of the trip made my ticket just as expensive as if I had bought it from a regular company never again will I use your service rip off rip off. Once you buy the ticket then you send clarification letting the passenger know they have no rights I had no right to anything I was wondering if they were going to tell me I had to clean the plane in order to be transported from New York to Spain. A satisfied customer is a repeat customer you got over on me once but never again"
Cons: "Having to pay AGAIN for a seat choice. AND IBWAS MADE TO CHECK MY XARRY-ON BAG ALL THE WAY THRU TO ROME! WHY. WHY couldn't it only be checked to Philadelphia.?. That has taken place on other flights. Should not require checking a carry-on all the way thru on an international flight."
Cons: "Seats were too narrow and distance between sets is too small"
Pros: "Direct flight Good crew"
Pros: "Both flights were amazing!"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight. Service was meh."
Cons: "A USB port would be nice!!!"
Pros: "On tume"
Cons: "American and all other airlines need to improve leg room in coach."
Cons: "Delayed flight all day long from 11:58 AM till 8:00 PM, where they blamed it on traffic at RDU airport, weather in Chicago, and finally a maintenance delay for from 2:00 PM till 8 PM before they canceled!"
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving which caused me to miss my flight to Prague. The notifications about the delay and next steps for rescheduling the second flight were delayed and sent to the wrong email address."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Raleigh to Philly was cancelled so we missed the flight to Manchester. We booked , through Kayak, with British Air and paid extra for premium economy and the actual carrier, American, doesn’t know how to process a refund and no such seats are available on our rebooked flight 24 hours later so it has been frustrating."
Pros: "Crew was extremely helpful on boarding and on flight. Breezed through Passport area. Everyone went our of his/her way to answer our questions and then make suggestions."
Pros: "Great entertainment. Ok food and drinks. Newer777."
Cons: "Long flights are pure torture in these small seats."
Pros: "Food was edible, flight left early, arrived early in philadelpia, the customer service helped out it my baggage."
Pros: "Super smooth flight - it’s an average commuter flight - no fancy bells and whistles."
Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Economy class seats better than UA."
Cons: "Economy class seats always have room for improvement."
Pros: "Not over crowded and friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew we're very pleasant & friendly. The flight was on time even though we sat in the runway for a bit."
Cons: "Having to pay 3 Euros for a cup of coffee. And the seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "But the crew was great!"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Pros: "Pleasant crew; clean and generally comfortable"
Cons: "Check in / baggage drop : long wait ; rather unhelpful personnel at counter."
Cons: "Flights out of RDU to Philly were late. AA will not let you get on another flight going to the same destination if your checked luggage has been committed to particular flight beforehand. You have to fly with your luggage."
Pros: "Love the direct flights from RDU to West Coast. Wish there were more cities on the list. The flight was delayed about 45 minutes after we boarded for take off. I hate sitting on planes idling. The seats are already uncomfortable, then add more time onto that to sit. But we made up the time in the air for an on time arrival. Hmmmm?"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight at dinner time and then the 3 hour time change, the snacks provided are not enough. You just have to remember to bring food on the plane and then risk annoying your fellow passengers with the food/dinner dining space. More checks of drinks would be nice too. Cost cutting measures, but minimal considering a packed flight and pretty high ticket price."
Pros: "- Great entertainment system and choices - Timely departure and arrival"
Cons: "- Marginal seat and leg room comfort for a 5'11'', 180lbs passenger"
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "My flight was delayed leaving Ft Myers because of weather in Dallas. I got to Dallas and went to my connecting flight and was told I didn't have a seat anymore. No reason given, they just said you don't have a seat anymore and I'd have to take another flight. Complete garbage."
Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "We made it home safely"
Cons: "Service and comfort are very poor."
Cons: "Maintenance delay caused me a 4 hour delay getting home on a work night. Going to be a long day tomorrow. Switched connector to United."
Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Pros: "We landed, eventually."
Cons: "The flight was late. Also, they only accept cash onboard for refreshments. That has the consequence of the crew getting on the PA system asking people for change, and scurrying around the cabin in a desperate shell game exchanging bills. It's 2016. Get with the program and accept credit cards."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."
Pros: "Loved that we were on time and that the counter personal were polite and patient."
Pros: "Gate agent super helpful and nice. Flight attendant gave me two coffees, which was was needed."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the pilot was honest about how delayed we would be."
Cons: "AA was not upfront or clear on delays at all. The plane was very delayed and they did not communicate clearly."
Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "I froze the entire time"
Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Never offered any of the food they were walking by with. Only 1st class got everything"
Pros: "Service, comfort, timeliness."
Cons: "Food was marginal, especially the chicken in the salad, which was petrified."
Pros: "Everything was on time, no delays."
Pros: "The delay of 1 1/2 hours far exceeded the 30 minute flight."
Cons: "No movies, no headphones, no wet wipes. Not your fault, but i missed my connections."
Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived almost 30 minutes early."
Cons: "The general shrinking size of airplane seats is ridiculous. And one of the restrooms was not locking properly."
Pros: "Thankful for infight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "United flight attendants (not former continental) really need attitude overhauls. Customer Service is your job, stop acting as though assisting passengers is an inconvenience to you."
Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."
Cons: "Pretty much everything I hated, starting from the time they charged me extra 100 bucks for second luggage which was mentioned as free both by kayak and Lufthansa to me, major breach of customer trust. Apart from that the crew was in general rude, didn't find the experience anywhere close to comfort"
Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."
Pros: "Staff seemed efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, long delay (due to weather)"
Cons: "Gate attendant accused me of trying to get "free extra baggage" when I simply asked whether there would be gate-checking on this particular flight."
Pros: "First class was fine - nothing too special"
Cons: "delay too long"
Cons: "Flight attendant was really not very nice at all. I felt like I was in trouble for even taking the flight. 'Move your feet. Bags have to be moved under seat. I need to see your seat belts.' She was curt, unfriendly & really made me upset with her bad attitude. Maybe she was having a bad day but I paid good hard earned money for my trip. I at least deserved courteousy & mutual respect."
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew."
Cons: "The amount of snacks that were served."
Pros: "Nice and quiet for an early morning flight. Just wish the tv was free the whole time since it was such a short flight it wasn't worth the $$$"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. No accommodations provided"
Pros: "i liked that the flight was smooth and departed onetime and arrived a little early."
Pros: "fast boarding & exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "restroom smelled."
Pros: "Great price and comfortable seating. Also friendly staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Now that you asked - the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The snack was adequate but I don't think very healthy. I didn't eat it on the second flight. Not sure what - the plane - wind patterns - pilot - but it was a pretty rocky flight from RDU to DEN. You should give NA as an option cause I didn't use the entertainment"
Pros: "Excelent services and good customer services"
Pros: "Everything went how it should."
Pros: "Can't usually go wrong, 1st flight of the day!"
Pros: "Good leg room. The snack was good - a waffle cookie. Crew was cheerful. Plane was clean."
Pros: "friendly crew. speedy, reliable flight"
Cons: "insufficient overhead storage. could not accommodate the one carry-on and one personal item room for all passengers."
Pros: "I liked the entire flying experience. It was ideal. Best part to me was the pre check and not having to go thru the line. Flight left early, arrived early, I had a middle seat and it was comfortable."
Pros: "The free programming on your personal device"
Cons: "Drink (Alcohol) options could be better"
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed on departure, it did not cause a delayed arrival. The crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy seating. My knees touched the back of the next row making a very uncomfortable 5 1/2 hours. I think it is ridiculous to have to pay additional fee (up to $99) for extra legroom. I think it is called "premier economy" seating."
Pros: "All was very good"
Cons: ". Before boarding they said flight was full and there wouldn't be enough room in overhead compartment, so I checked in my carry all. After landing I expected to pick it up as we exited the plane and was told it was on the carousel ."
Pros: "Efficient Boarding"
Cons: "No in seat Video. Free entertainment promised did not work on my laptop."
Pros: "The service and that i could sleep"
Cons: "Gates where too far away in Newark"
Pros: "The plane was on time the crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."
Pros: "No drama. Everything on time. Crews were great."
Cons: "Seats cramped but I'm 6'7" so I should have put more effort into getting a bulkhead or emergency exit seat. My fault."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Short flight , every thing was good f"
Cons: "Flight was likeable short flight"
Pros: "Friendlier attendance."
Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"
Pros: "Got there."
Cons: "Small, cramped seating. Outdoor jetway upon arrival."
Cons: "The area around me was very dirty. Made me a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "We were well compensated for a traveling fiasco. Our plane died in Newark. Our new plane wasn't big enough for 12 of us. It was a pretty crummy to spend Easter Sunday at the airport while our entire family celebrated the holiday. I do really appreciate the travel certificates we received for our trouble."
Cons: "As I stated above, we were stuck at the airport for the duration of Easter Sunday. We were supposed to be home by 1:30pm. Kind of a bummer to have wasted the entire holiday; but I guess that's what you get for traveling on holidays."
Cons: "I paid the 25.00 for my small bag which could have easily been a carry on, but I had a purse and small carry bag. I felt that WAY too many folks had backpack and two small carry ones, but by bringing them to the gate - the announcement was made its a full flight so you can check your bag for FREE! Next time, I will not follow the rules and just simply check at gate?? That is message loud and clear from your gate folks."
Pros: "Nice Flight Crew"
Cons: "There was no leg room what so ever! I am 6 foot tall and around 275 pounds. The seats were made for children, not made for an adult. My seat was so uncomfortable my legs actually went numb, mainly for the fact that I couldn’t move because of how tight the seats were. I have flown many times and this was by far the most uncomfortable flight ever! I will never fly again if this is how planes are going to be."
Pros: "The whole experience was great, plenty of room in the seats and leg room. Fun flight"
Cons: "It was all good . Can't say the same for the flight from Huston to Seattle"
Pros: "After having worked Monday 10 am until 7 pm AND then10 pm to4 am i was exhausted boarding a 6:50 am flight. Needless to say i was asleep before we left the runway. No-one bothered me, and I slept the entire flight. Didn't wake up until we landed in Newark and the tires hit the runway. Thanks United!! I'll def be utilizing your airlines again!!"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and seats were comfy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no snacks were handed out."
Pros: "RDU to EWR was fine, but the return flight was way oversold, and we didn't even get seat assignments until it was time to board. I purchased our tickets months ago, checked in 24 hrs before, and did not check bags, but we still had to stand online and keep reminding the gate agents that we did not have seats and that my three year-old had a car seat that needed to go in a window seat. Once on board, the first clas flight attendant was awesome! She helped us fix a seating nightmare (agent had given my 3 y/o a seat by himself) and came back to coach during the flight to give my son some wings and to just check on us. She and our safe arrival are the only aspects of the entire experience that deserve any stars whatsoever."
Pros: "Everything was on time and adequate. That seems to be the standard for a great flight these days."
Cons: "No pretzels or peanuts."
Cons: "A lady on the plane threw up 5 plus times. The vomet got me and other passengers. The flight crew did not clean it up and was very rude. We I complained I was told " Who do I think I am" I responded I am a paying passenger. I am very disappointed in United the way this matter was handled and the nonprofessional attitude of the flight crew. This is a very concerning due to the unsanitary and health risks involved. United should look into this ."
Cons: "no food< no entertainment, crying babies, why can some flights be for adults only?"
