Cons: "The flight attendants in my could have been more visible other than just during the food service time."

Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3-1/2 hours. The gate crew booked us in another flight but did not issue a ticket, so after transferring to another terminal, we were sent back to the Delta terminal to be issued a ticket to a third airline since we already missed the second flight. Then, they lost our luggage"

Pros: "Inflight entertainment was great. Movies, games, moving map. Best I’ve ever seen in main cabin for free."

Pros: "I liked the crew."

Cons: "They ran out of blankets, earphones on the flight"

Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"

Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation, The crew sprayed me twice with the fizz from opening soda cans with no apology."

Cons: "7 hours delayed. Poor front desk worker, nice flight attendants!"

Pros: "Good snack selection, plane departed on time, no issues."

Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."

Pros: "The staff was very professional, courteous, and accommodating. Having the Delta app made everything relatively easy for me with the up to minutes updates on flight and baggage status."
Cons: "I didn't like the long lay over, considering I found a gnetleman that was also going to BWI, but he was given an earlier flight. I am grateful for being able to get a cheap ticket for same day booking, but the gentleman also booked the same day as me."

Pros: "The snacks were decent on the flight. Everything else was a disappointment."
Cons: "Unexpected delay for take off after being told the flight was going to be on time. They couldn’t give us a reason or an eta on take off while waiting at the gate which affected my ride situation once I landed in Seattle."

Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Crowded waiting area and plane. Awful on plane!"

Pros: "Stewardesses were sympathetic but could do nothing."
Cons: "A few flurries out of Philadelphia and flight is delayed 2.5 hrs, we therefore miss our connection and all they wanted us to do was spend 2 days in airport until next flight. Finally reached a compassionate soul at customer service who got creative and routed us to BCN via ATL, Miami and Madrid."

Cons: "The crew was late so we were delayed two hours. I find that extremely infuriating when you are a passenger and have to show up two hours before your flight. I also would lose my job if I was two hours late for a client."

Cons: "Sandwich for dinner"

Pros: "Two Delta agents a kiosk assistance were not aware of the Hurricane Irma policy of waiving baggage fees to my destination. I informed them that the website indicated it would waive baggage fees to certain destinations if checked in at the airport before a certain date. Another Delta agent nearby had to show them a copy of the policy before I could get my baggage fees waived."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Pros: "Crew seemed nice. Plane itself was normal. Pilots seemed to know what they were doing."
Cons: "The things I didn't like were out of Delta's control: Some baby who screamed bloody murder whenever the captain said anything (so we couldn't hear the announcement about being stuck on the tarmac). Also, we got stuck on the tarmac for about 45 minutes. Obviously, it could have been much worse. But you know how it is when you just want to get home. And that baby."

Pros: "The flight was very on-time and it reached the destination even earlier than expected."

Pros: "My flight was delayed 40 minutes in Detroit after a 3 hour lay over we boarded the plane. Then 45 minutes into the flight they said the landing gear light came on and they would be going back to change plans. My mother with Lymes disease was waiting 3 hours in Providence supposed to arrive a 11:50 instead 2:50am we were so tired missed a day of vacation."

Pros: "Tv on flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant skipped me for drinks"

Pros: "The stewards/stewardess were very helpful. The trip was very pleasant."
Cons: "Great customer service from all staff. Mannerisms, snacks, and safety precautions."

Pros: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."

Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."

Pros: "2 seats by windows, rather than 3, and the roominess plus ease of using the media tv screen and options. the beverage options and food options were plentiful as well as good quality."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Pros: "Loved the onboard entertainment and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "I travelled w/ one adult and two infants internationally and could not book the infants' tickets online had to do it over the phone. When we got to the airport we had to pay $255 for 5 bags, that's almost another ticket."

Pros: "Staff friendly & made sure that everyone on the plane was aware of someone with a peanut allergy so no peanuts were to be eaten. Ground staff worked hard to get us rebooked & on our way as our first flight was so late that we missed our connection. So glad to finally see a charging port as our long haul flight didn't have them."
Cons: "Not the crews fault but this was the slowest disembarking process on a plane that I have ever seen. Hard to get comfortable in the seat. Not able to sit with husband as it was a rebooked flight & the flight was full."

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Customer service not friendly, seats are not very good, no food or entertainment on a 3.5 hour flight. United just transports you from A to B for a high price."

Pros: "Same as previous flight."

Cons: "Shitty entertainment system. Have seen so much better."

Pros: "The plane was changed so some people had new seat and some not. The crew assigned tickets quickly at the entrance. Arrived 20 min earlier, which is great!"
Cons: "The peanut bad is now contains 13 peanuts, I counted them :).Where is a good food for a 3.5 hours flight?"

Pros: "First flight was not sold out which allowed me to change seats"

Pros: "While the process was confusing, the staff were quite pleasant and actually seemed to enjoy their job."
Cons: "The boarding process is very confusing. There are so many different boarding priorities and programs, it is difficult to know where you are in the boarding process. Even if you have a ticket labeled as Group 1, you may still be one of the last boarded because of all the different programs that have priority over you. Would be better to limit the advance boarding to people who need extra help and a single program. This leads to the question, why are there so many different programs? Wouldn't it be easier to have a single loyalty program? If you don't qualify for advance boarding because you did not purchase a first class seat, or you haven't reached the advance boarding requirements, you don't qualify. Let's start thinking about the customer again, and less on the profit margin. How would one of your executives feel if they had a boarding Group 2 and 85% of the plane was already boarded by the time your group was called, thereby limiting the space for your correct size carry-on? One more thing that would be beneficial, enforce the size limit for carry-on luggage. I have been to airports that limit the size with a box on the x-ray machine so you can not even get an oversized piece of luggage through security. Just one idea for the industry."

Pros: "Flight, plane, and crew were great."
Cons: "MEX customs was a nightmare."

Pros: "Todo no ay espera. Y muy amable todo el perpersonal que trabaja ahi"
Cons: "No tengo ninguna queja"

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "A more organized boarding process"

Pros: "Crew was good, food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment, I saw the Wifi stuff when I bought the ticket, but there was no internet connection there. Besides, no movies, no screen... boring."

Cons: "Be in time, over 1 hr delayed."

Pros: "Even for such a short flight we had screens for entertainment and the people in charge were super nice."
Cons: "I love to travel with Aeromexico. I'll never change anything."

Pros: "Checking was fast and easy."
Cons: "Seat cushions were super uncomfortable."

Cons: "Over booked"

Pros: "Seats could have been more comfortable"

Pros: "very nice timely flight, overall great attention to safety and professionalism, also had plenty of space and great entertainment!"
Cons: "one more pass through cabin with a snack on the 5 hour flight would have been nice!"

Pros: "Luggage was found that was good"
Cons: "Horrible day nobody here to guide you or help you and then charge you an arm and a leg."

Cons: "The Screen in front of each seat is fine but the problem is the very long and boring commercials, your content should be brief and to the point. Plus the price of the air fair can not be justifiable to torture the passengers on their dime... Your Marketing team is unprofessional and uncultivated, please hire decent people that CARE.for the customers and the future of aviation"

Pros: "Flight on time, all personal was very helpful and kind"
Cons: "No choices for breakfast and the one served on first class not so great."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Plane was late, missed connecting flight. Hotel for Mexico City was 2 star and small food voucher."

Pros: "Ease in ticketing."
Cons: "The hardest part was the long layover. I didn’t dress warmly enough, so I had to keep moving!"

Pros: "Servicio. Puntualidad."
Cons: "Todo bien"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, leg room much better than any US airline. Crew is smart and efficient."

Pros: "The only thing I liked was that the airplane seats in both airplanes were comfortable."
Cons: "Their system says one thing but in the airport they charge you otherwise. I had purchased my ticket with 2 checked bags allowance only to go to the airport and pay 235 because apparently I didn't!. And I had called not once but SEVERAL times to confirm that I had that 2 checked bags allowance. Furthermore, they told me I would have to wait for my bags and transfer them to the connection band, but guess what? I waited an entire hour for my bags only to be told my an airport employee not even a Aeromexico one, that most likely my bags already went to their destiny. My flight was in 1 hour from then and I almost lost it thanks to them giving incorrect information to their customers."

Cons: "Rough Landing"

Pros: "Vuelo acorde con el horario establecido"
Cons: "Regular atención del personal en el aeropuerto"

Pros: "I liked how the crew came up and gave us drinks or food without us asking"
Cons: "Space was to small and dirty and the screen didn’t work"

Pros: "The in flight meal was just what we needed and they got us to San Jose safe and sound. No complaints!"

Pros: "Ontime and pleasant"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "The delay when departing, and the attention of the flight attendants. Also very limited kind of beverages."

Pros: "La comodidad la amabilidad de las personas."
Cons: "La comida"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They would not let me board the plan even though I made 30 minutes early. Our connecting flight was late. My bags made the flight and I wasn't allowed on."

Pros: "Flight was delayed because of weather conditions I understand that is impossible to prevent, but the lack of communication with all the delays I left home 10:30pm Friday dec 1st and I’m still in Mexico City and I haven’t arrive to my destination. Here in Mexico City was a total mess, nobody knew anything and I run everywhere trying to get my flight but I got wrong info and i missed my flight! Had to wait 5 note hours in mex city and willl arrive midnight!"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever, I’m flying in business to bog and it a total misrepresentation in regards of the business seats I saw those flat beds in the website etc....I guess it depends of the itinerary but they should let you know about it! Will never ever flight with aeromexico again. The poor attitude of the employees! Sad"

Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."

Pros: "the worse airline"

Cons: "The customer service was horrible. The worst I've ever experienced."

Pros: "they were on time"
Cons: "They changed our flight again from LAX to Oakland."

Pros: "The crew was courteuos and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a midnight flight so I tested as best as I could."

Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"

Pros: "Staff was friendly, both at the airport and in the air. It was nice to have meals served, even on the very short flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport to find that they had overbooked the plane and our family's 4 seats were in jeopardy. We had to wait until they had processed everyone else in line, even though we had gotten there first, because either they were in the "sky priority" line or because maybe they had pre-bought their seat assignments. After a tense 20 minutes of waiting, they closed the flight and let us have our seats. Then, at the gate, they confiscated two of our most important carry on bags and checked them because they said that children are not allowed a carry on item -- despite paying full freight for their seats! It was very nerve-wracking at our arrival destinations as these two items were not padlocked and were the very last to come on the conveyor belt."

Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."

Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"

Pros: "Staff was very courteous and helpful"

Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"

Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."

Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a bad mood that night. One of the flight attendants hit my elbow as he was speeding through the aisle, causing me to knock over my drink. He didn't apologize or try to help. The other one"

Pros: "Would not let me board. Made me buy another ticket and wait 6 hours for next flight"

Pros: "the inflight movie."
Cons: "The flight was suppose to take off from Mexico City at 945 PM however nobody gave an explanation nobody knew the time or even the GATE I got to the airport at 6 PM, the flight took off at 1210 AM not only that I get on the plane and the AEROMEXICO crew had a really messed up attitude like they didnt care, I wanted to buy a gift for my wife from the magazine they had and the lady with a attitude simply said we dont have it, and I could keep going but It was a really bad experience for me."

Pros: "the crew was great!"

Pros: "Confortable seats"

Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"

Cons: "I could not access the games the lady next to me, and others were playing. When I decided to watch movies the earphones were so small they kept falling out of my ears, and I am a small woman. It was a long flight from Tokyo to Dallas, and the lack of diversion became a major irritant."

Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent, flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing for this flight."

Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice and tried to make our long delay tolerable"
Cons: "Why do you board a flight when the airport has grounded takeoffs? Just to meet some stupid metric for on-time departures, you make 100 people sit in the plane for 2 hrs, when you could have just let them wait to board. Misery."

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"

Pros: "Flight attendant was great, plane was comfortable and clean"

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "small jetcraft"

Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."

Pros: "No breakfast"

Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Cons: "Turbulence"

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: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Everything was as expected. 1 star on entertainment as there was none. Would have liked to have been able to get 3 seats together without extra charges."

Cons: "seats feel crowded. the actual seat is very uncomfortable, they lack padding."

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."

Pros: "I haven't flown AA in a while, I was impressed with the entertainment and food!!! They had a variety of movies. Also, the food was simply but delicious! Cheese and fruit!"

Cons: "Horrible - Flight was diverted to IAD for no legitimate reason. Rebooked out of DCA with no travel vouchers. Most likely never booking with American Airlines again."

Cons: "The pilot decided to add fuel and catering after all the passengers had boarded. We arrived in Chicago after a 4 hour delay and we couldn't find a gate for 20 minutes. Ridiculous!"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "Flight departed on time.our trip out there was disappointing , causing us to get there very late costing us money."
Cons: "Airline did not notify us that as of 10-15-16 the Samsung Note 7 phone could not be bought on the plane. Because my sister Phillip Mae had a meeting at 10am in Greensboro, N.C. she was forced to give her phone to American Airline."

Pros: "The boarding agent in Jacksonville, FL was a spirited, beautiful woman. She had everyone in the terminal cheer all the soldiers on our flight. And was very helpful to me getting a seat closer to the door as I was having horrible spasms in my back. She is what AMERICAN Airlines should be to all customers. Gate B47 on 9/30."

Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."

Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."

Pros: "NOTHING!! I had to book them another flight thru another airline, because they had a delayed stating weather issues when it was nice and sunny so they couldn't make it on time. I will never trust United Airlines not for myself or any on my family members, nobody period!"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "Nothing, the fact that they were my membership partner for milege"
Cons: "Food was bad, boarding process sucks , seat sucks for first class, no free wifi , old dated devices , was not offer personal device on first class, crew seem mad all the time"

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice. She tried to let one particular person off plane first so that he could run to catch his connecting flight"
Cons: "The gate people were horrible at explaining the delays and then trying to set up alternatives. Quick tip: offering "free water" when your flight is delayed 1.5hrs so several people will miss their flights is not enough."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours causing me to miss my connecting flight to Indianapolis. Went to the service desk to re-book, and nothing could be done to get me out in time. Customer service was not great. I was flying to see my daughter graduate, and the only time they could get me out was when the graduation started. No hotel vouchers were given for the delay either, so the airport bench ended up being the bed. So I ended up being stranded in Newark for an additional 8 hours to just miss her graduation."

Cons: "Plane seating was tight"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Pros: "I received an unexpected free upgrade to first class. Two thumbs up!"
Cons: "No complaints. Every aspect of the flight met or exceeded my expectations."

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "One hour delay, no microphone to hear what the desk staff was actually announcing, desk staff were also completely unprofessional. Made my connecting flight by less than a minute thanks to SPRINTING through the airport because of the delay - a less able bodied person would not have made it. Overall ridiculous and dissappointing"

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Cons: "It was cancelled in the early AM, due to equipment failure"

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "Early arrivals"
Cons: "On the express smaller planes you have to gate check your rollarboard suitcase which is fine but if your in first class they dont have a separate tag from economy class so i got my bag last even tho i was in first."

Pros: "Econ Plus was nice. Flight was fine."
Cons: "GA called for all "people with disabilities" to board first. How about simply asking for people who need a little extra time...PWD's is a bit of a label that doesn't work for me. While we were boarding the white female FA made a snide comment that maybe passengers should not bring more than one bag. She was also rude to the other FA."

Cons: "The wifi onboard was broken. There were no t.v. sets to watch."

Pros: "They have a snack and a drink on such a short flight."
Cons: "No leg room or entertainment. Receiving baggage after the flight took 15 min (carry-on baggage)"

Cons: "Flight delayed and I had to literally run to the next flight"

Pros: "Everything! My grandparents needed special assistance with wheelchair and the crew was very helpful!"

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
