Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth. The food was also good."
Cons: "The passenger next to me in the middle was hitting his arm rest on my leg and made my flight uncomfortable because he would not sit still. I think crew needs to do a better job of making sure everyone stays seated when the plane is still moving before jumping out of their seats and grabbing their luggage. Passengers should be able to exit out of more than one door same as entering."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "I was served Butter chicken after confirming with the flight attendant whether it was an ASIAN VEG MEAL which I had requested. On being confronted about the issue, the flight attendant gave a cold response saying they were out of asian veg meals. One of the worse airlines and should not be a part of Star Alliance."

Pros: "Overall the experience was good. Cabin crew helpful."

Cons: "They should serve Asian food for asian flights"
Cons: "Departure is 4 hours late. Missed connecting flight at Istanbul. Asked us to pay for Visa to stay in hotel. Did not have money. Also forgot to take Credit card from USA. As per the rule Airlines has to pay for Visa. They never paid. Asked us to pay. Totally harassment. Never book Turkish Airlines in my remaining whole life. Also will this incident to all my friends after going back to USA. Very very bad experience. Sat down 24 hours at Airport without food and sleep. Mostly will file a case against Airlines."
Pros: "same as my experience to Istabul, ths was a connecting flight, I saw their Ad in their inflight magazine, didn't know they were rated #1 6 years in a row.

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew."

Pros: "Excellent STAR lounge in Istanbul Good service, once settled. Friendly staff."
Cons: "On line check-in system does not remember frequent flier info. Passport check at gate was poorly managed. Everyone was in waiting area then told to get out and stand in line for passport check. It happened each time so this seems to be their normal process. On flight back they bused us to the airplane and waited for all three buses to arrive at the airplane before allowing anyone to board. Flight attendants helped with moving carry on bags in bins but with little consideration to the items. Completely unorganized boarding process to the point it is worth paying a little more to fly a different airline."
Pros: "Flight itself was comfortable even though it was very full. Good, well maintained airplane. Great pillow and blanket. Somewhat hard seat. Love the newspapers they give us to read - what a selection."
Cons: "Istanbul airport really lacks seating for its passengers in the general areas. You need to sit in a restaurant to rest your feet as waits are quite long between flights. Another problem is the lack of internet for passengers without Turkish cell accounts. This should be corrected. Finally, lack of water fountains in the airport is also a problem."
Pros: "Cost of the ticket"
Pros: "The overall experience was good but small gestures by crew can improve the same significantly."
Cons: "Crew slow to respond or non responsive even for a glass of water."
Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "Flight attendants did not respond to the call button. I went almost three hours before getting a drink of water"

Cons: "Never been better than this time. Usually turkish is the best and i allways travell with turkish and i feel safe and co fortable"
Pros: "I am always pleased with Turkish Airlines service and I love that they still give the little extras. It makes me feel more comfortable and the earplugs are always welcome!"
Pros: "never again"
Cons: "por for servis"
Cons: "They messes up our special food order and served us meat!"
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "No Internet, seats were very uncomfortable..ugh"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above Very bad experience"
Pros: "Crew service, choice of in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Discarding our original chosen seat assignments and assigning us random seats. Food was also below par."
Pros: "Entertainment system was newer & good"
Cons: "Not managed properly. Didn't have any food available other than veggie pasta. Pasta was dry. Servers took too long to give food or drinks."
Cons: "flight had hours of delays barely anyone speaks or understands English.. Lack of help from everywhere from checking in to boarding to take off won't recommend to anyone."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was superb and service excellent"
Cons: "The ground personnel in Istanbul were rude and prevented us from boarding before the general boarding even through we were business class passengers. She made us wait till all economy passengers were boarded before permitting us to board the plane. When the business class passengers requested to know the reason she just said this the way she was going to do it. She yelled at the business class passengers for no valid reason. I have travelled business class and never been put to such humiliation!!"
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Cons: "Delays both in DETROIT and a huge delay in Shanghai."
Pros: "The flight crew was so nice! Roomy seats and plenty of snacks!"
Pros: "No air conditioning. Sat at the terminal in 95+weather, many elderly on the plane in hot weather. Attendants said oh well well at least your not in the back of the plane. Also intercom was set to blaring with a high pitched squealing sound."
Pros: "Staff tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't change flights on the day of travel"
Pros: "Great service, on time."
Cons: "Could not print subsequent AeroMexico flight segment boarding pass."
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "In flight Wi-Fi and entertainment is nice and helps pass the time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow, and contributed to a delayed take off to ATL. Flight arrived late and caused a missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Nothing... no movie, no food, just awful."
Cons: "I decided to cash in some miles for first class, what a waste. Never book first class on delta flying a short route, it’s just not worth the money. The flight attendant had the ATL attitude, if you know what I mean."
Pros: "Happy to get an earlier flight - and was put in ComfortPlus"
Cons: "Small plane, no entertainment (movies, music)"
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"

Pros: "It was on time. Flight attendants were courteous. There were snacks."
Pros: "Smooth quick flight."

Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."
Pros: "On Tim and friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely nice to my baby and me. Didn't feel rushed. Nice variety of snacks."
Pros: "there was NOTHING good about the trip from nc to atl to fl!"
Cons: "where should i start? my flight was delayed leaving NC to ATL. after standing in line for over an hr trying to speak to someone about the issue. i was notified on my phone i could keep my current flight or rebook of course i wanted to keep my current flight since it was my birthday weekend. i then called delta (in nc) for help since they told us we wouldnt make our 1030 flight and we might have to stay in a hotel that night until we could rebook the flight. not cool! i was told by a person (in nc)about what i should do once landed in ATL. they were beyond rude. they turned their backs or gave half answers. when asked about the hotel for the night they told me they werent going to handle that and i had to pay for a hotel AFTER i was just told by a delta agent that if i had to stay overnight my hotel was going to be covered. i then again called a delta agent in ATL after being informed that my status on the stand by list wasnt activated and i had less than 10 mins to make it to the next terminal and try to get activated and i would probably not get onto that flight to leave ATL. we were told that we had to stay in the terminal that night. my whole trip could have been ruined from the start from the flight being delayed in NC to talking to rude delta agents in NC and ATL. my flight status being one thing and then finding out it was something else. i never had to deal with something like this."
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."
Pros: "Everything was great. Staff were friendly and courteous, I only had one problem but even that was solved and I was taken care of."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that wires got crossed and now I don't have my luggage because my check in agent from the start of my journey didn't send it to the right place."
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hours"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, and delayed again, and finally delayed to 18 hours after original takeoff time. I was rebooked on a flight for the following after, and that flight has been delayed twice so far. Never again will I fly Delta."
Cons: "That I never made it to my destination"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew"
Cons: "Uncertainty re connections at JFK provoked some anxiety but the pilot and crew were helpful in allaying that."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Cons: "That I missed my son graduating from the Air Force"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and apologetic"
Cons: "The AC did not work and we had to get off and hang out in the jetway for probably 45 minutes. Nightmare."
Pros: "Delta gave out free snacks and then I got a flight for the next day."
Cons: "After being delayed over 5 hours and then being on the airplane the flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful. We had some medicine that needed to be refrigerated and they both provided a bag of ice for us to keep it in and checked back to replace the ice as it melted."
Cons: "With only one gate attendant, boarding was slow and unorganized."
Pros: "The cookies on board were tasty."
Cons: "There was no gate agent until another passenger went all the way to another gate to retrieve one. The flight kept getting delayed, but no one made any announcements about why or even that there was a delay. Passengers just kept noticing the time change on the flight info board. On board, if you didn't buy into Delta's classist system of paying for an "extra comfort" seat (which, by the way, is a regular seat), you were seated in a tiny shoved in extra row where even my 8 year old's knees bumped the seat in front of us while seated. I will never fly Delta again, particularly with them being one of the priciest options."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."
Pros: "Fast boarding and short time from gate to take off."
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late getting into Raleigh, so an hour late leaving Raleigh for MSP. That gave barely enough time to hurry straight to the gate for the MSP to MSO flight."
Pros: "The crew and everyone was very informative and helpful in keeping us informed about our delays."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hrs also, my baggage was damaged."
Pros: "Fast boarding the plane! Great snacks! Great flight attendants."
Cons: "We sat in the plan for 45 minutes before taking off and arrived 20 minutes late."
Cons: "This flight never happened bc they didn't have a captain for the plane. Not a delay - not maintenance issues - just didn't have a captain so sorry your flight is cancelled. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed we were deplaned during the delay, always a plus. The flight was fast to help make up time."
Cons: "Take off,flight and landing were a bit rough, but as it was only partially due to weather, understandable. A little difficult to endure the speed and sharpness."
Pros: "Everything was on time & comfortable."
Cons: "The cold I caught on the way to my destination, but, Oh well. Such is life."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was fast"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times and caused me to miss an appointment in New York. I could've driven back to New York and I would've been home faster."
Pros: "Polite attendants."
Cons: "Overall look of aircraft is poor. Ac Outlet was not working. Snacks were terrible. Dirty."
Cons: "More legroom please"
Cons: "People could have helped"
Cons: "Wifi and entertainment need help"
Pros: "Service manager Alan and crew were lovely, very friendly and felt genuinely happy to help us. I have never been given so much free stuff on a plane before! The snacks and beverage offerings just kept coming. I enjoyed my warm meal. Entertainment offerings were good, and as we were on a newer plane the technology was better than other flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "Seats could have been a bit more comfortable and roomy, but they were decent and I didn’t have too much trouble sleeping."
Cons: "The plane, the arrival time and the service"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and smling and fun..the chicken curry was awesome--nice detials on this flight."
Cons: "Again seated next to the restroom and the chemical smell but really everything else was wonderful--"
Cons: "The plane was at the gate for almost 2 hours due to the fuel tanks - apparently the engineers didn't know which tanks were refueled. Sounded a bit weird. I bill at $800 per hour - I think I should be compensated for my time."
Cons: "the seat"
Pros: "Direct flight and excellent service from attendants"
Cons: "Seat selection was changed to middle seats without prior notice and the seats are so close together , when the women in front reclined her seat the dinner tray did not fit. An attendant eventually asked her to put her seat upright. Once dinner was over, back to a recline position, far too closer to the seat behind."
Cons: "I was seated at the emergency row. The staff has a policy of collecting the pillows and blankets during take-off from these seats. But they never gave them back to us afterward. Later when I wanted to go to sleep, they could not located these items."
Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."
Cons: "Never happened due to delay by airline"
Cons: "One world premium member, last seat next to the bathroom, rude check in staff who we’re highly unhelpful saying they had no authority to help and to use ba.com for customer service issues and outrageous checked bag fees €75. Never again BA."
Cons: "I noticed that a rubber beading of a sliding part of the left wing was worn out and was waving with the wind. I feel this should be fixed immediately for our safety."
Pros: "Arrived safely at destination."
Cons: "Even coffee cost money? Had to request water. Just cattle moving through."
Pros: "Cabin relatively new. Leg room in economy adequate. Cabin crew pleasant"
Cons: "Zero checked baggage allowance!! CDN$70 for first checked bag if booked before hand, $113 per checked bag if paid at airport!! All food and drink on this 4 hour flight from London to Santorini must be paid for!! No peanuts. No cup of soda/pop. Maybe a small plastic cup of water. Bring your own iPod or tablet. No seatback entertainment! On Airbus with very limited overhead hand baggage capacity. Roundtrip cost of this 4 hour flight CDN$800 per person booked 3 months in advance, not much less than transatlantic flight of almost twice the time from Toronto to London on Air Canada Boeing 787 with loads of overhead luggage capacity, free first checked bag, 8 inch screen seat back entertainment system, charging ports, one major meal with wine / beer, unlimited pop, plus snack. A real shocker to get Ryanair amenities on this British Airways flight which was no bargain."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was quick and boarding was easy"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very nice, pilot announcements clearly audible"
Cons: "Check-in/bag drop area at Berlin TXL is poorly organized. Need an attendant to help with line management. No free snack on board — not even a peanut or a pretzel! Purchase only."
Cons: "Worst transfer ever from Lisbon flight to Chicago flight. Arrived late, bus from tarmac to terminal 5: 12 min. Up down stairs, security check, up down stairs to take the train, up down stairs to gate. Then take the bus back to tarmac to board the plane. A lot of waiting for bus, then being in the last group everyone shoved in the buss like sardines. In the future I’ll avoid at all cost transfers in London ."
Pros: "I feel safe and comfortable in British Airways."
Cons: "The ticket is too expensive ."
Cons: "I️ almost lose the next flight because the previous flight was late"
Pros: "I found everything to be acceptable for me."
Cons: "I was in seat 43A and the light from the galley was a mite bright from my seat, but I simply covered my head with the provided blanket and napped at will."
Cons: "Flight was okay. Did not get my bag after landing at Mumbai airport. Have to wait 24 hours to get it. Very inconvenient."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "11 hours wait time!!!! No lounge entrance No food!"
Cons: "No food!!! No coffee!!! No water!!! "Brilliant" like low-cost !!!!! Incredible!!!"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "It's third time British airways lost our baggage. Come on BA, you can do better than this!"
Cons: "Missed the plane from London Heathrow to Montreal dur to delays; as I missed the plane from London Heathrow to Nice for the same reasons. Don't sell tickets with too short correspondence times!"
Pros: "Everything was fine, food was better than expected, on time"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight and they should allow extra time when changing terminals. 2 hours was BARELY enough with 2 20 minute bus rides and a huge line at security, to top it off, 1/4 mile of moving walkway was shut down for no apparent reason. These are Heathrow issues, not really BA issues."
Pros: "The flight to London was fine."
Pros: "The flight staffs were awesome"
Cons: "No USB port on the plane"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, responsive, and helpful. They made sure we had timely service for all aspects of the trip."
Cons: "We were involuntarily downgraded from Business to economy for our 9 hour flight from London to Mumbai. Outside our party of 3 there was also another party of 3 in the same boat as us. It seems like British Airways is too aggressive with overbooking the higher end sections of the flight, which seem much less likely to have people 'no-show' (either because it's for work or because they've spent so much for the tickets)."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "A few of us were held up on the tram. The doors were shut And they held the plane and accommodated us. For that I give 10 stars. I will always try to book British Air first"
Cons: "My wife didn't able to travel. She is on h4 visa and when we tried to checkin at airport staff said she can't travel because she doesn't have valod visa in her passport for us. I tried to explain to staff that her h4 visa is her us visa but didn't accept. I have no problem with uk policy but atleast britiah airways should let is know when we booked ticket that you need visa on your passport. I will never ever travel through british airways."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Felt room in spite of being in coach. Friendly flight attendants."
Pros: "The 787s are super spacious!! Economy class never felt so good."
Pros: "The crew was great & the food was great too. Service was excellent, very friendly. Managed to get a window seat. It was perfect, a little cozy nook of my own. The 787 had only 7 seats in a row, the configuration was better, more comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike, all good."
Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable, choice of indian movies was not very good."
Pros: "I made it to Paris and I guess that's what's important"
Cons: "You could offer small bottles of water as a courtesy Flight Attendants are definitely rude. Not to me, but I watched them interact with other passengers and they are just baseline.. rude."
Pros: "Best airline !!"
Cons: "Always timely and flight crew is personable and helpful."
Pros: "I liked everything about the service."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and the food too"
Cons: "The only thing not that good is that The comfort of The seats and The legroom was not The bestia, at leas not for a long flight like this pone."
Pros: "Great service from the whole crew"
Pros: "I liked how pleasant the staff were."
Cons: "I don't like bulk head seating."
Cons: "I require wheelchair assistance .. There was only one person servicing the entire group of people on the prior flight as a result it took us way longer to get to our connecting flight and we all ended up missing it. I had to spend over 12 hours in London .. Which was very uncomfortable and tiring for me considering my poor health, the previous 8 HR flight from Boston-London and the upcoming 9 hour london-Mumbai."
Pros: "packed but acceptable and was timely"
Cons: "passengers werent very considerate but otherwise it ws fine"
Pros: "They changed my seat when I asked them too."
Cons: "The stewardess told me for the last meal, that they ran out the no. Vegetarian meal so I must choose the veg one. Later he said he gave me the preference for the earlier meal so this one shouldn't be a problem if I didn't get what I asked for. Totally blew my mind. The audacity with which he gave me his explanation was extraordinary. Sorry British airways, don't need that attitude. Wrote to them about this, haven't yet replied back. The flight was pretty old by itself. Not like the ones that go from London to United States. The Seats were smaller and had a very uneasy contour, the entire plane just looked a little banged up. The crew always seemed in a rush, to busy to even hear or look around."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "The seat rows are too close together. When the woman in front of me reclined her seat she was basically in my lap- not how I wanted to spend 7 hours. I finally had to put my knees against her seat to keep her from reclining. It took a lot of effort to cross/uncross my legs in the limited space. I'm only 5'4" 118lbs - I can't imagine how anyone bigger than me feels when they have to fly in the same situation."
Pros: "On time and nice."
Cons: "More leg room"
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: "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"
Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"
Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "We made it home safely"
Cons: "Service and comfort are very poor."
Pros: "Upon leaving Raleigh, N.C. Our plane was carrying a fallen soldier and a marine who accompanied him . They announced this and gave the other passengers the opportunity to walk to an area to watch the very solemn ceremony. It was all done with respect and handled timely. The flight still left as scheduled and arrived on time. Not that this was the most important part. Even if it had caused me to miss my connecting flight, the ceremony for the fallen hero was more important."
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: "Everything was fine, I would probably take the flight again but nothing was above average"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more organized"
Pros: "The premium plus seats are quite nice! Excellent movie selection too."
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: "Cheap price"
Cons: "No selection of drinks. They offer only wine. Also, no food for almost 10 hrs of the flight. They make you starve for food."
Pros: "The plane was clean, airy, comfortable, and not overbooked. The flight attendants treated me very well. Boarding was easy and the gate agent was extra pleasant."
Cons: "The flight attendants were downright rude to some of the other passengers, the ticketing agent had a nasty attitude and made for a very poor "first contact" experience with the airline. The front desk agents at the United Club in EWR were aggressively officious with a lot of the guests that day as well. Overall, customer service was very poor, even though the attendant on the flight were quite nice to me and gave me great service."
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"
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: "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: "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: "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."
Cons: "Free wifi access"
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?"
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "No movies nor Internet"
Pros: "It was a short flight."
