Pros: "Crew was great."

Pros: "Everything ran quickly and efficiently. Flight Crew was friendly as well."
Cons: "The check in clerk in Reno wasn’t professional at all. He clearly showed impatience and lack of tact with the young family ahead of me as well as myself when it was my turn. Not impressed with his service at all."

Pros: "The customer service rep was polite"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the night before claiming ‘weather’. It was fine flying weather at my origin, destination, and layover airports and forecast to remain so. All other carriers were flying. The re-booked me not on a later flight, but on the next day with not one, but now two layovers."

Cons: "Very noisy but tolerable."
Pros: "Great crew! On time professional Food average. Excellent pitch for the Alaska Mileage plan and credit card"
Cons: "for a 1 hour flight, you could add more frequent services from Reno to SJC. This will help remove traffic from the roads during long weekend and encourage more travel to Reno/Tahoe area from those of us who don’t prefer driving in traffic"
Pros: "Cheap and"
Pros: "Long lines at checkin, was in line for +45 minutes, several people missed their flights, it was not the best time to be training attendants as it held up the lines"

Cons: "The flight was late arriving which was worrying as I had a connecting flight to catch and I was worried we would not make it in time."

Cons: "Crying baby behind me most the flight"
Pros: "The weather in Reno. I didn't however make it to Seattle."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I arrived at the airport at 11:15 AM for a noon flight and by the time I got to the front of the line was told that 11:20 AM was the cut off time for that flight. I do not like the fact that the ticket agent Was quite rude and uncaring and unhelpful. The Epitome of poor customer service for a terrible policy. she almost seemed to gloat over the fact that she could not or would not help me join my family for a dinner in Seattle."
Pros: "Friendly Crew! Comfortable Seating! Genuine!"
Pros: "Cabin was nice and warm during flight. Crew were kind and easy to talk to. Planes ran on time too. Well done."
Cons: "The fact that it's owned and operated by Horizon,which meant smaller planes were cut (via a corporate choice), off from having wi-fi. Seriously? Why only give a few planes wifi access and then proceed to market your flights including wifi?? It's rather deceptive. :( This is a let down and ethically kind of stinky!"
Pros: "The staff and everyone was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight is noisy cause the plane is smaller."
Cons: "My fought was canceled with no costumer service answeringvtge phone and I had to re book my next ticket"
Cons: "Really? Flight from San Jose to Reno delayed 1 1/2 hours. Return flight delayed 1 hour, then canceled altogether. Both flights delayed or canceled due to mechanical problems. Yes, you did provide a $250 credit, but I lost a day's pay from work. Luckily, my family has a place in Truckee . Felt sorry for so many of the passengers whose travel plans were greatly changed by Alaska's mechanical problems."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "I did not receive notice or a page of my flight leaving Boise. I was not in the airport long after arriving from Reno and I missed my original flight and I was right in front of the gate."
Cons: "Not enough room in the cabin,"
Cons: "You failed to inform me that Alaska no longer offered the original flight from Eugene to Portland, so I had to buy another flight the next day and ended up being late for a family gathering for thanksgiving. The Eugene airport was extremely helpful but your service has been horrendous. I will no longer book through a 3rd party. I know this is the wrong flight I'm commenting on but your poor service equates to my poor feedback."
Pros: "the ground and flight crew made every effort to be sure that I made my connection (along with 5 others). They were very pleasant and accommodating"
Pros: "not availab;e"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Late start 20min"

Pros: "Very easy and great reminder app"
Pros: "Got some sleep"
Cons: "More sleep"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Pros: "Comfort plus is worth the upgrade"
Cons: "Getting to JFK by 810PM instead of past midnight"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Departure times and entertainment"
Pros: "Leg room and comfort were outstanding. Free Fly-Fi enabled me to be productive. Using my Amazon Prime membership to watch videos on my own device was great."
Cons: "Movies weren’t available on my screen."
Pros: "Nice leg room, I like the option to watch TV for free"
Cons: "Our plane had a maintenance issue we didn’t bord for an hour after the original Time. The communication could have been way better from the gate agent to let us know updates."
Pros: "They cancelled our flight 2 days before via e-mail allegedly because bad weather, but weather was fine. Agents were rude & did not offer help. We bought last minute tickets with Avianca, which costed $500 extra. We got a refund, but lost money because change of dates. Who is responsible for this?"
Cons: "Jetblue customer service had us waiting on the phone for 45 minutes, the virtual agent was also slow at answering and not help at all. They should have automatically put us on the next available flight, not cancel it without any choice. That is just bad customer service all together."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Pros: "No problem"
Pros: "Seat comfort and leg room!!!! FANTASTIC! Pleasant crew. Made super time... landed 20 minutes ahead of schedule. Always a good thing"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Check in process, take off time."
Cons: "A child about 2 yrs old was hysterically screaming for at least 1/2 of the flight.... making ME feel like running up & down the plane's isle..... screaming!!! It was horrible!!"
Pros: "Good service,"
Pros: "The staff really didnt know where to pick up my luggage, which have me going to different terminals, but the flight was good"
Cons: "The flight."
Cons: "Delayed and departure time changed but wasn’t reflected until I was at the gate. They also changed my seat from the front to very back of the plane"
Pros: "The plane was very spacious even if you did not pay for the upgraded seats. The plane was very well kept and the flight attendants made a sure to offer me complimentary snacks and drinks. Awesome flight!!!!"
Cons: "Only gripe was the seatbelt wasn’t very long. Barely crossed my waist."
Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "We waited for an hour for snacks and the snack truck showed up, and we wanted up taking off without snacks. I had slept in the airport all night and was starving."
Cons: "Movies and shows was not working."
Pros: "Leg room!!"
Pros: "The flight was almost on time, and it was okay."
Cons: "Not only the tv screens didn't work for some of the passengers (including everyone in our row), they kept showing "noise" and there was no way to turn them off. I'd say 20% of the screens were malfunctioning and the remote control in the arm rest to my left kept coming out of the seat. It was quite unsettling / uncomfortable."
Pros: "Jet Blue was very accomodating to both myself and my service dog. They upgraded our seats to accomodate for standard poodle size, offered tsa precheck to help out while in the airport. Staff was (as usual) polite, professional and pleasant."
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: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."
Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"
Pros: "The cheezits were awesome."
Cons: "After departing an hour late because they forgot to fuel the aircraft, we have landed and are currently in the wrong city because they did not onboard the correct amount of fuel. This is awful. In 30 minutes we are told we will have enough fuel to take off again on the second attempt to get to our original “nonstop” destination."
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "This was my best flight ever"
Pros: "Boarded on time and reach new york before the initial time"
Cons: "Bought my wife and i tickets together but wasnt seated together."
Pros: "I'm still surprised by how much more leg room there is on these flights. The only thing I misses were the blue chips. Just cheese zits and cookies for snaks on both flights."
Cons: "No blue chips."
Pros: "The legroom was a bit better than most airlines."
Cons: "We were on the right side of the aisle as you face the front of the plane but for a long time it seemed as if only the other side was being served any snacks, beverages. The plane was delayed for takeoff due to a/c problems. Too bad that was not discovered before boarding and forcing us to sit in the fairly uncomfortable for an extra hour and a half. The crew did not seem overly helpful."
Pros: "The timing"
Cons: "People were being inconsiderate towards one another and staff did not care to diffuse the situations."
Pros: "The convenience of landing and being so close to home. Only wished there were more flights avail with better times."
Cons: "1) The time of this flight is a bit much. I understand that it is close to my home but I know if Jet Blue adds 1 or 2 more flights, they would totally get booked up. The leaving JFK at almost midnight and then the time difference is horrible. 2)This flight had a child that got sick and we were delayed about 40-45 mins. Totally worth it but it made for an even harder time getting in at almost 630am PR time. 3) The turbulence was horrible. We were warned but so many customers were getting sick. Its was unpleasant to say the least."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "No priority boarding for credit card holders"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great, except..."
Cons: "It was way too cold. Get the heat turned up on that thing!"
Pros: "Love the extra space in the seats."
Pros: "Our flight was a short one (JFK to Bermuda) so it didnt provide a real opportunity to get a feel for JetBlue but our impression regardless was very good. There was ample leg room and the attendants were prompt and courteous."
Cons: "My only issue with the flight was the cleanliness and fit and finish with the seats. It gave the impression that it was an old aircraft and the seats bore the crumbs and creases of all the past passengers that sat there."
Pros: "The flight left b4 time. Ft. Lauderdale was spared the effects of hiricane Maria and Irma"
Cons: "Paying usd 28 for luggage"
Pros: "JetBlue sent me two updates announcing that my flight was delayed, so I adjusted plans accordingly. Then, JetBlue restored my original flight time with no updates, so I missed my flight."
Cons: "I didn't like missing my flight due to confusing updates from JetBlue."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "The seat in hard."
Pros: "First airline I've been on with wi-go that really works. Plane was immaculate."
Cons: "Muy malo el viaje"

Cons: "no internet"
Pros: "Earlier than scheduled departure. Quick assistance with wheel chair."
Cons: "Assistive device was off loaded a bit too late."
Pros: "Leg room!!!"
Cons: "Drinks were slow and we never got our snack. The flight attendant said she'd be back and never returned. Also, $5 headphones were pretty steep!"
Cons: "What does that even mean? How can you cancel a flight after you sold it to me? I had to fly to FLL on Spirit instead of Jet Blue to PBI. It was a real hardship because i was traveling with my 6 yr old son and landing at 10 pm an hour from home didn't help. I was refunded for the Jetblue flight but it still makes nop sense to me how you can cancel my reservation several days after I booked it. I am very disappointed. ."
Pros: "Puntuality and price/ value"
Cons: "No snacks, poor entertainment"
Pros: "It's very relaxing and great pilots."
Cons: "The female flight attendant did not give me water when I needed it. Before take off when everyone was settled and seated. I was very dehydrated and needed it. I had to signal her several time s before she came to give it to me."
Pros: "new plane good flight"
Cons: "seat space"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me was coughing and not covering his mouth. I am especially concerned given the recent Coronavirus outbreak."
Cons: "Old plane with no video screens or room. Boo!"
Cons: "Remain awesome!"
Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants. I appreciate the complimentary bag check for my carry-on bag to the destination."
Pros: "The agent at the bag drop was very helpful. We had two reservations and she took the extra step to call someone and helped check our luggage all the way to destination. Thanks for the wonderful service. Flight attendants were all smiling and very friendly. A very special treat that we got two snacks each which were very much appreciated as it was an early morning flight and we didn't get a chance to get breakfasts."
Pros: "Great crew, easy process overall"
Cons: "Make 1st class cheaper and give free wifi!"
Cons: "Service and crew at JFK was horrible! Worst I have ever been around. Staff could not have cared any less"
Cons: "Food service Leg room"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Pros: "The crew was good, when we actually were in the air."
Cons: "A working plane would be nice. It was only an hour delay; any inconvenience there may have been, when it comes to flying, is amplified. I am 6’ 8” and the plane is just uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was on time. Although crowded, boarded went smoothly."
Cons: "Checking bags in Reno was a bit chaotic. Only one representative was there to assist when we arrived an hour before the flight. When others arrived to assist, people went directly to counter and were helped before those of us who had been waiting in line. My seat back screen did not work ."
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."
Pros: "I liked the wide variety of movies and snacks available."
Cons: "The kid behind me wouldn't stop kicking my seat."
Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Pros: "Our seats were assigned at the gate. Somehow we were given the comfort + seats. Very nice! Thank you!"
Pros: "Cabin crew super helpful & friendly. The food was great - all snacks & meals were well prepared and had great flavor, I’m not saying it’s a 5 star restaurant, but I was wasn’t expecting the quality we received. Great job! Impressed by Delta service."
Cons: "Traveling is always a challenge - abundance of patience required! We traveled from Dallas, Atlanta, Amsterdam, to Rome & back. Every country had a little different process for boarding and getting around - most had friendly staff, on point, helping clueless, stressed, & frustrated travelers. I was really disappointed in Atlanta, not a very welcoming or helpful spirit for visitors to US - not all (80% were awesome), mainly those trying to greet and direct through customs. Most hate the arrogant America anyway, don’t make it worse - put your best people on the front lines to help with international relations & show why the US is the best. Put those that don’t want to be here loading bags out back! Sorry for the lecture, but this is any business!"
Cons: "That Delta was not more accommodating when I missed my flight.. Got totally lost in Austin. Have never driven there before and highways were difficult at times. $503 to get on another flight home. Ended up getting better deal at Southwest. Will most likely stick with them next time I am forced to fly."
Cons: "This was my worst EVER airline experience. It was delayed 27 hours and the snow was not the only problem. When we finally got on board a plane we sat on the runway for over two hours - then they FORGOT to load the luggage!!!"
Pros: "Operated by Delta so great!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat for a short trip."
Pros: "love that Delta is now giving out Kind bars. Thanks!"
Pros: "No power plugs on a six hour flight? Wifi was down and the audio didn’t work in my seat. Crew was super snarly and unhelpful"
Pros: "El cumplimiento de vuelos"
Cons: "Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars."
Pros: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait. There's no Delta lounge, so you're stuck trying to find something to eat and somewhere to sit well before our flight. The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly."
Cons: "Being next to lavatory."
Pros: "The Delta flight was such a pleasant contrast to the funky Interjet flight that I took from L.A. to Mexico that my Economy Class felt like First Class."
Pros: "Ind-atl flight was absolutely amazing i couldn’t find really anything wrong with the flight besides spacing for seats"
Cons: "Spacing with seats"
Pros: "being able too use our electronic devices in Wi-Fi mode the whole time. Last time I flew everything had to be shut off during take off and landing."
Cons: "The person next to me was taking up half of my seat."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Pros: "Whole thing was easy, plane was nicely updated on the interior"
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Check in was very hectic due to limited staff and getting bumped by the red carpet flyers. Boarding is always a little congested due to the lines. Better snacks please!!"
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze....arrived slightly earlier than expected."
Cons: "Nothing to not like"
Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Cons: "The seat was not a flatbed. It was an old fashioned first class seat but with absolutely awful knee room---possibly as little as 28-30 inches. It was very difficult for the person next to the window to get out to the aisle, even when the person in the aisle seat was not sitting there. The biz class cabin was shared with economy comfort. The crew gave no explanation for the switch in aircraft, and no apology either."
Pros: "My Delta flight from Salt Lake to Orlando was the dreaded redeye. Flight was packed, no empty seats. I had a middle row seat. But the plane was new and the seats were comfortable. The flight arrived early.I slept or tried to sleep the entire flight. No complaints."
Cons: "No free meals."
Pros: "Plane was a newer one, clean, and the stewards were nice."
Cons: "New seating was terrible. The seats are so jammed together that my knees were pushed up into the seat in front. How can anyone be comfortable with this kind of seating arrangements?"
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"
Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"
Cons: "I always have preferred American Airlines but they seem to have constant problems with the aircraft these days. This causes delays and missed connections. This in turn causes no breakfast or lunch or dinner opportunities. I travel with snacks in my bag at all times now just in case so I won’t get sick for lack of nourishment or water! This last flight I missed my connection altogether and had to take a shuttle home, then catch a ride back to the airport to pick up my luggage and then get my car to drive home. It was 4 hours past my expected time home."
Cons: "Was not allowed to get on slightly early with a car seat and a 3 year old to get situated in the seats, though on every other flight we have been allowed to. There was a delay that caused us to miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable"

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "Gate check of carry-on luggage was nice. The connecting flight from DFW to FLL was on time and the boarding process was very smoothly executed by the gate agent. Well done!!"
Cons: "The flight out of RNO early in the morning was chaotic. One of the kiosks was down and the line to self-check was long and moved very slowly because there was only one agent behind the self-check baggage drop. She did well keeping up but there was a long line of unhappy customers due to the long wait. No snack was offered but I did get a glass of water. Not enough overhead storage for the carry-on bags because passengers get the luggage check tag but brought the carry-on onboard anyway."
Pros: "I feel like there is more leg room in the seats then in other discount airlines! I like the snack and drink, this breaks up the flight a bit. This is nice for me because I don’t like to fly."
Cons: "The staff seemed miserable. No one was nice or even smiled. Just felt like they couldn’t wait for this leg of their day/trip to be over."
Pros: "Even in economy, the seats were actually OK (room + comfort)"
Cons: "LATE. Fortunately because BOTH flights were late, no problems with connecting."
Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"

Cons: "Poor ratings for food Is result of not eating any food. No entertainment."
Cons: "The food terrible"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Cons: "I think things would run so much smoother if the plane was loaded from the back to the front. That way you don't have to wait as long for people to put things in the overhead and then sit down."
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "Flight box waste of money for sure. The middle seat was vacant and it was fantastic. We travelbwith a guide dog."
Cons: "The boxed food"
Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "Small chairs."
Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Automatic ticket rebooking"
Cons: "It being cancelled."
Cons: "Delays without updates, rude flight staff, lost baggage"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could considering the situation."
Cons: "There were multiple delays, leaving half my flight with missed connections in Phoenix."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed and missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice. I dont' like to fly and the take off was so rough, I spent the whole flight in the bathroom. The flight attendant gave me ginger ale and pretzels and let me sit in the back so i didn't have to go back and forth. The other flight attendant had aroma therapy that helped a lot but i was just too freaked out. Those two made the flight as nice as possible."
Cons: "Very rough take off but that is mother nature not the air line :) Took off almost an hour late. LAX scheduled too many flight to land at the same time, Had to wait on the runway in Reno."
Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time."
Cons: "Small plane claustrophobia, entertainment required your own debice"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight to to 3 delays."
Cons: "Not once but twice we boarded, sat on the plane for an hour and then were asked to deplane due to mechanical issues. It's understandable for one plane to have problems, but absurd to have issues again with the second plane. After all this, our flight was delayed until the early hours of the morning, leaving many passengers to sleep in the airport. It was uncomfortable, disappointing, frustrating, and the crew seemed very unsympathetic."
Pros: "We left 55 minutes late. Person at counter was annoying. Kept grabbing the microphone, think he liked hearing himself talk. Wanted to valet all the carryons but there was room in the airplane for them."
Cons: "being late and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight was one time."
Cons: "It was a standard boarding. The standard ride. I have nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Flight research tools."
Cons: "After choosing seats through this website we were kicked out of all of them and was separated from my partner. Every single flight we took was late and we missed a connection due to a late take off. The low cost was not worth the extreme effort and connecting flights."
Pros: "Boarding was easy & seamless"
Cons: "Had to lie about forgetting my phone charger in the waiting area to get off the plane & give my niece a hug who arrived early on a neighboring flight from NY to RNO as we switched off to take care of my dad who just had a triple bypass. If two people are past security - there should be NO ISSUE with them meeting - we have already been screened & a hug or anything else should not be a crime."
Cons: "I still have not received my luggage"
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Cons: "The previous crew did not do some kind of check so leaving Reno was delayed which left almost no time to get to my connecting flight. No one seemed very happy at all."
Pros: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Not very spacious and entertainment only offered at My own expense"
Pros: "Very good and safe"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Easy bording"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "The rubber chicken in first class was awful. Drinks and wine were good. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"
Pros: "We had a 1pm connecting flight to SF enroute to Los Angeles and it was suddenly cancelled without any notification. Luckily, Kayak had notified me about the cancellation and we immediately called United to take the next flight out. The earliest was at 5:50pm and we didn’t get back to LA till 7:50pm. The 5:50pm flight was late and therefore push everything out..."
Cons: "No communication from United... the crew and staff was fine, it was just the lack of communication that was disappointing! Not to mention, I had my dog boarded at Doggy Daycare and I’d missed picking her up due to the late return back to LA."
Cons: "Seating is very tight and amenities are nada."
Cons: "As stated above, we never made it to Liberia (where we had family waiting for us). We had to fly first to Panama and then to San Jose and figure out a new rental car situation, as we already had one booked in Liberia."
Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."
Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."
Cons: "i had no space & couldn’t move because passenger next to me should have been required to purchase TWO SEATS!!! I could not move entire flight & he had armrest up & took up my space & full plant so i could not move elsewhere. my neck is still killing me because i had to turn my head to stay away from his face. i will NEVER fly united again."
Pros: "Easy very organized loading."
Cons: "Really nothing"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed leaving RNO, and the check-in agent moved my seat up to the front even though I had the new "Basic Economy" so I'd have a better chance running to catch my connection upon arrival. She also put my backpack in one of those plastic bags. DCA did not do the same for me."
Cons: "Small CRJ, so seats were smaller as expected. Short flight though."
Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "In a decade of travel I've had three lost bags. Two of which were Air Canada. So I'm going to avoid them."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I am a small person, 5ft 4in 110lbs. The seats are not comfortable and very cramped."
Cons: "Flight turned out to be 3 hours total instead of 1 1/4 hrs because of delays at both ends"
Pros: "Good experience with United. I don't usually fly with this airline wi I was kinda hesitant, but it was ok."
Cons: "I don't like that there is no free in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac in Reno for half an hour because of flight control delay from SFO."
Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Cons: "Every flight delayed 2 hours plus"
Cons: "Tight uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Flight out of Reno was delayed due to congestion / back up at LAX. Ground staff patiently helped all passengers reschedule connecting flights / explain options."
Pros: "It was quick but full"
Cons: "The tv broke"
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "One flight, we sat next to ssomeone with a cat in her lap that threw up and pooped the whole time. The second flight a drunk man yelled the whole flight."
Cons: "No food. Horrible service"
Pros: "The courteous ticket agent at the counter in Reno-that's all."
Cons: "Getting stuck, having to change plans. SUCKS!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable ride. Now I know what dinners feel like. Recently flew Delta and didn't notice discomfort like this."
Pros: "I was on time. I liked the view."
Cons: "I don't like when they leave me at the gate in my wheelchair. I don't like it even more when they take the wheelchair. I feel really uneasy when I am left at the gate. So I have the wheelchair pusher let someone know from the gate that I am there and will need assistance. Once again being sexually assaulted going through the metal detectors. Outside of being foreign most of the United employees seem like complete morons. Also there was that same bag in front of me. So my legroom was restricted."
Pros: "It got me to Boston!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats!"
Pros: "It got me to boston, the pilot etc did a great job"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, even in Economy plus"
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"
Pros: "It was a quiet and smooth ride."
Pros: "Did everything you scheduled and nice crew."
Cons: "On the 3 hour and 18 minute trip to NY in the coach section the seats have hard plastic armrests and a paded armrest would make your airline the cats meow. Give the coach section a little comfort please."
Cons: "The flight was over one hour late in leaving and while I appreciate that is beyond the control of the flight crew, one steward was quite rude as we were quickly trying to board as she prioritized serving the first class cabin rather than get us all on the plane. At the very least she could have used commonly acceptable language such as "please, thank you and excuse me" but rather chose to use "wait". As some of us where desperate to make a tight connection in SF, focusing on getting people on board and the plane off the ground should have been the crew focus."
Cons: "I had no indication that my flight was actually with united and not air canada. I almost missed my flight as a result. Was incredibly stressful."
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."
Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"
Cons: "Late take off and had to wait for ground crew when landed"
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Pros: "Got delayed on my first flight, missed my other connections, had an 8 hr layover and almost 24 hr trip, rearranged my entire travel plan. Not united 's fault but not the best flight I've had either."
Cons: "Food need more variety"
Cons: "Flight was late Unacceptable"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connecting flight. I was put on a standby list for flights to my destination as well as to any cities around it with connecting flights. Every flight was over sold and they were unable to get me on any flights until Tuesday... My original flight was Sunday morning. I was among 26 others on this standby list. United customer service told me to wait at the airport until my flight because they wouldn't be able to help me with a hotel. Less than satisfied and annoyed that I have to miss two days of work on top of having to stay in San Francisco for two nights."
