Read more about Delta
Pros: Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming.
Cons: No baggage space in overheads. Despite being in an early boarding group
Pros: We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible.
Cons: Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle.
Cons: Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight
Pros: The crew members were nice and didn't bother while sleep when giving out snacks & drinks (I've had this done to me before, annoying). Plane was comfortable because it wasn't packed, so was able to have a seat empty in-between me. The entertainment offered was really good, the connecting to the Go-inflight WiFi was a bit difficult, but no biggie.
Cons: THE DELTA TERMINAL AT HARTSFIELD AIRPORT, ATLANTA, IS DIS-ORGANIZED!!!! THERE WAS NO ONE GIVING PROPER INSTRUCTIONS FOR DROPPING BAGS OFF, PEOPLE WERE EVERYWHERE IN EVERY KIND OF MADE LINE!!! ALMOST 30 - 40 MINUTES OF WASTED TIME, THIS AND THE SLOWEST TSA PROCESS CAUSED MANY TO PROBABLY MISS THEIR FLIGHTS, INCLUDING ME (THANKFULLY MY FLIGHT WOUND UP BEING 3HS DELAYED - THAT'S NEXT). DELTA SHOULD INFORM TRAVELERS ABOUT TIMES WITH THEIR BAG DROP AND TSA!!! 3HRS TO GET A SMALL PART THAT ONLY TAKES 2 MINUTES TO FIX, I'M VERY GRATEFUL IT WAS FOUND WHILE ON THE GROUND, BUT AFTER 1 AND HALS HOURS COULDN'T WE HAVE JUST CHANGED PLANES!?!?! I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AFTER 10A, WASN'T UNTIL ALMOST 2P..
Pros: everything was just as comforting as it was pre-pandemic
Pros: Being upgraded was a GREAT surprise !
Cons: I waited for over 40 minutes for someone to answer my call button. And then they just turned it off without asking me or anyone in my row if we needed something.
Pros: Quick flight with basic service.
Pros: Crew was nice
Cons: Nothing really
Pros: Pilots and crew were amazing
Cons: It was perfect
Pros: The crew was great and very friendly.
Pros: The little food packets were cool and convenient.
Pros: We've always enjoyed flying Delta and this trip had been just as nice as the previous ones we have taken through this airline.
Cons: Our stewardess/stewards seem to be incredibly cranky on this trip and very unapproachable. They must have been having an "off" day I guess.
Pros: Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly.
Pros: Crew was solid.
Cons: Don’t change my seat. Not on time. No food. Luggage with legally checked firearm sent to the wrong airport.
Pros: Pilots. Flight attendants. Space. Left and arrived on time.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of at the moment
Cons: The mask mandate needs to be voluntary ADA violation
Cons: It was actually quite good, Delta is by far the airline to use compared with the other airlines.
Pros: Crew was great, comfort+ definitely has more leg room.
Cons: Beer not guaranteed on flight for Delta comfort plus.
Cons: The flight was delayed by 3 hours because of storms in Atlanta earlier. This caused us to miss our connection to Fairbanks in Seattle, so we had to spend the night in Seattle at our own cost.
Cons: connecting flight left without 1/6th of its passengers. Stuck at airport now because of Deltas laziness
Cons: Space on airplanes
Cons: Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?
Pros: On time
Cons: Flight attendants not friendly
Pros: delayed, switched to another flight, delayed 3 times...crossed the border at 1am...terrible experience overall
Pros: Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!
Cons: Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism..
Pros: Food was so good. Crew was also very nice.
Pros: Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding
Cons: The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything
Pros: The flight left on time and arrived on time, crew was pleasant and helpful.
Cons: I am over 6 foot so comfort for me isn’t possible. It was an older aircraft so the seat monitor was of the older version but it did work and helped to pass the time while I was in my no leg room seat! I am NOT over weight! With turbulence there was only one opportunity for inflight beverage service.
Pros: Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA.
Pros: The nice staff and entertainment options.
Cons: I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you.
Pros: On the first leg I liked the entertainment options. There were plenty of current content to watch and the screen was good enough. I still resorted to my iPad after a while but it was more because I wanted to watch something specifically rather than I had to. The food was decent but as usual the good stuff runs out before you get your turn. Order special food next time.
Cons: I don’t like any airlines boarding process in general. They always seem inefficient and slow. I didn’t like the free headphones they passed out. They’re so awful that they really ruin whatever you’re trying to watch.
Pros: We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous.
Cons: Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows.
Pros: Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too.
Cons: Seats don't recline far enough.
Pros: The seats
Cons: We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded.
Pros: Tons of free entertainment on the screen in front of your seat! Movies, games, and details on your flight, all available on your touch screen. USB charging is also available.
Cons: No one told us they wanted everyone with a roller carry-on to.check their bags. An attendant told my sister that her bag needed to be checked. We did not receive this notification until we were at the gate, boarding.
Pros: Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on.
Cons: Space. Economy on a long flight is not ideal
Pros: Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered.
Cons: where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?
Cons: Left about 2.5 hours late because of a broken seat of all things. Apparently Delta doesn't bother to have maintenance staff on site at the airport.
Pros: I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person.
Cons: Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey.
Pros: There were only two lines. The economy line took so long because there were many passengers checking in their fish catch boxes. So those of us with only one baggage were lumped with them. There was no option to tag your own bag if you alr day checked in, as it was the same checking and bag drop line.
Cons: If we were standing in line for a long time, I hope they can increase the number of counters. They can also dispense with the nonsense chitchat. It's not needed, just move it along. The roving staff should to remind those next in line to prepare their documents, it seems the lady at the counter had to ask for photo ID every time!
Cons: We repeat soon
Pros: crew was excellent as ell as the counter personal
Pros: Food was good. Movie selection was really good.
Cons: The boarding process could've been smoother if the desk crew could explain better how the process works.
Pros: Crew were trying but non of them spoke English
Cons: I have never had such a terrible experience like this one
Cons: Everything was awesome.
Pros: Premier class services.
Cons: entertainment and toilet cleanest.
Pros: Good price compared to direct flight on United
Cons: The check in process..there seems to be no benefit in doing the early check in online because there is only one Copa attendant helping the premium and early check in customers while there are four Copa attendants helping the regular check in customers and that line moves twice as fast! Seems idiotic
Cons: All is ok
Cons: The only thing that disappointed me was that I had no access to the lounges. I had hoped to be able to use the first class lounges since I had booked business class but I was not allowed in any of the airports.
Pros: Comfy seats
Cons: Compliance with departure times
Pros: what a difference from the flight crew. Much more attentive and responsive to our flight requests.
Cons: This flight was better. Short flight and very attentive crew. I figure the seat selection on mobile app would be my choice next time.
Pros: wonderful crew
Cons: the food was terrible. Copa has really gone down with there food. Usually international flights have good food.
Pros: Crew was friendly
Cons: Food options ran out twice and it tasted terrible. Seats were very uncomfortable
Pros: Puntualidad, amabilidad, buen servicio
Pros: All services
Pros: If you get in line early, there might be overhead bin space.
Cons: Seats are awful. FAs don't want to speak slowly so you can understand them or English, basically saying they don't care. Every Copa flight I have taken is a late departure.
Cons: food and entertainment, check-in in Rio de Janeiro was awful.
Pros: The flight attendants where and are amazing.. the service was the best. Highly recommend to fly with “copa”
Cons: I don’t think I did not like anything to be honest.
Cons: I wouldn't recommend this airline. Check-in closed while I was waiting in check-in line. Agent tried to rearrange for a later flight but I would have missed the connecting flight and wouldn't be able to connect until two days later. First and last time attempting to use this airline.
Pros: Convenient times.
Cons: Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated.
Pros: Very satisfying
Pros: The flight from Rio to Panama was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better. All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries.
Pros: Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights
Cons: Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights
Cons: Hours of delay to departure after crowded boarding with passengers in a small room. No individual entertainment at all, even if we wanted to use our own device. Priority luggage came after non-priority luggage. Broken luggage. No food for our baby at all. Crew refused to give us one more meal.
Pros: Good servoe
Cons: No WIFI connection movie selections
Cons: Uncomfortable seats. I ordered Kosher meals, but they did not have any available, so I pretty much watched everyone else eat while I couldn't.
Pros: copa is punctual with the flights and offer a good service in the air.
Pros: The crew was very friendly.
Cons: I was quite disappointed that I was never informed that in order to have a vegetarian meal it had to be ordered ahead of time and the only meal options both were meat. So rather than offering something different which I'm assuming was not even available I didn't get anything to eat. Wouldn't it make more sense to have 2 ... or even one non meat option rather than 2 with meat considering meat eaters will eat things lacking meat while vegitarian cannot.
Pros: Tv's and that there were 2 open seats next to me.
Cons: Food is atrocious.
Pros: Went by quick, great staff
Pros: I bought a return ticket from Panama City to Rio on Kayak and was not notified that a Yellow Fever shot was necessary for re-entry to Panama. Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period.
Cons: To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again.
Pros: Short flight, nice snack.
Pros: All it is fine
Cons: Too much complain whit my carry on
Cons: Only the spaghetti was edible and the salad only had 2 ingredients. Also would appreciate changing up the entertainment options from leaving my destination to going to it.
Pros: to begin with the counter people in caracas all of them NASTYYY and Attitude! !!thn my flight was leaving at 5am from Venezuela i get there 3 hours before my flight coz thats what it says n my itinerary n when i get there they say the flight is closee the check in was at 1am!!where in the world the check in is 5 or 6 hours before!!!n they close the flight 2 hours before...?? i ended up missinf my flight!!
Cons: continue ... the make me msss my flight and they make me pay to flight the next flight when i was on time!!! for my flight!! the chrck in for then is 6 hrs before!!and on top of it they were not sure if i was going to flight n the next flight n they had me n waiting list ..when right now i was suppose to be landing in new york!! im still here in panama waiting for the other fkight!!.. NEVERR AGAINNNN!!!!
Pros: I was traveling with my 2 kids. 10 and 7 years old. On the flight from Lima to Panama, we were assigned different seats but thankfully the airline was able to accommodate us and sit us together.
Cons: The food was ok, but not great.
Cons: I expected Kayak application and Copa Airlines to advise travelers that they need a visa to Venezuela before expending $1030 on an airline ticked. I cold not travel because I was missing my visa to Venezuela. The visa requirement for US travelers is recently implemente this past February and many people dont know about it. This should be published before people buy their tickets!!! Thanks, E. Vazquez
Cons: Do to Irma in Florida I had to evacuate 2 days before my flight. I call to re schedule my flight from Tampa and they were not flexible at all charging me an ridiculous fee!!!!
Pros: Nothing since my negative stressed the whole trip.
Cons: We have long names, 4. It was correct in the booking with Layak but copa charged us $120 US / 2,090 MXP For correcting. Saying that Kayak didn't transmit everything. It was pay or be denied boarding.
Pros: The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc
Cons: The crew, and the plane is very old not fit, for a such,long flight
Pros: There were a few crew members that were working really hard and reached out to try to help me.
Cons: I was frustrated by the lack of communication. There was no announcement that the there was even a delay until AFTER the boarding time had passed. I was extremely confused and when the announcement was finally made, it was in Spanish only. Then the flight was cancelled (which is understandable and totally happens) but no one assisted me with rebooking or informed me what was going on. I was traveling alone and it was a very frustrating experience. Overall I was at the airport from 11pm to 4am the NEXT day. We were offered accommodation but not until 11am (our flight was supposed to be at 5am) and then we were shuttled back to the airport at 12 midnight for a 4:40am flight. Then my layover in Panama City was extended by 4 hours. Overall, my travel time was nearly 56 hours.
Pros: Everything was top notch
Cons: Not a single complaint
Pros: Very nice people and customer service is great.
Cons: Need some refreshing of planes interiors - that's why give more business.
Pros: The crew
Pros: This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time
Cons: Always the worst food. Sometimes, unedible. A bowl of pasta with one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Another choice was tough beef. I mean, really hard to chew beef.
Pros: The confort and food!.
Cons: One of the flight attendants that made noise taking her luggage from the bin case
Pros: The prices were low and the crew was great. A lot of entertainment options, also!
Cons: Boarding was rather disorganized
Cons: It was a six hour flight. It would have been great if they Offered a second drink.
Cons: Plane was too hot!! Ac nor working !
Cons: I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home.
Pros: They held the flight for us.
Cons: Something to eat
Cons: No more comments!
Cons: Better bathroom access for premium economy
Cons: The flight comfort was very bad. The plane was extremely warm and people we beginning to feel bad. Several mentioned it and asked multiple times to have the the cabin air conditioning turned down
Pros: Great Crew
Cons: More drinks
Cons: Wider seating
Pros: Because American Air had to change a light bulb on the plane in Lisbon, which took a couple of hours, we barely made our connecting fligh. We ran from customers TSA to the other end of Philly airport.
Cons: Another airline.
Cons: Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night.
Cons: Healthy snack options
Cons: Delayed for an hour
Cons: One crew member is not particularly helpful when passengers needed assistance.
Pros: Nothing, this was a miserable flight.
Cons: Gate at Philadelphia was tiny with not enough space for everyone on the plane, it was a 6 hour flight and no snacks beyond pretzels were available-not even for purchase. I'd just come off an 8 hour international flight where I was provided lunch, ice cream, a pot pie snack and frequent beverage service. Somehow as soon as you are flying domestic on a slightly shorter flight American Airlines thinks its okay to treat customers like garbage-nothing but some sad pretzels and 2 rounds of drink service was provided for a 6 hour flight. The seats were super uncomfortable with no head rest, no personal entertainment devices were provided, and there was no general entertainment for the whole plane-seriously I've never been so bored. I would have fallen asleep from boredom but the seat was too uncomfortable so I couldn't even do that. The plane landed in Seattle but sat without unloading passengers for 20 minutes because the gate crew wasn't ready. We didn't get our checked baggage for over an hour after landing. When asked, customer service reps said that the S gate was far from baggage claim-seriously I'm not sure how that is a reasonable excuse. Other airlines arrive into S gates and have timely baggage claim service. American Airlines has no standard for timely baggage claim service like other airlines (Alaska) so there were no repercussions for such late baggage service. We left the airport with our luggage over 90 minutes after the plane landed. The entire experience is just another example of American Airlines of why the terrorists won't even fly American Airlines. I was seriously disappointed to find out that the British Airways flights we booked were operated by American instead of BA crews. I seriously will never select this option (or fly American) again if I can help it.
Pros: Seats in general Economy ended up being fairly comfortable and headrests would bend enough to actually support my head while sleeping. Nice to have granual baggage tracking info in the AA app.
Cons: Overhead entertainment video quality was horrible. Awful user interface for trying to figure out and use the personal device streaming entertainment. Did not order food on the flight, but options were very limited for a 5.5 hour night-time flight (8p EST -> 11p PST)
Cons: Crew told us bulshit story about strong winds, even though flight times were normal. Diverted the flight to DFW, where we stayed for almost 2 hours fo refueling.
Pros: There’s nothing better than a non-stop.
Cons: Oy, they offered an $800 credit if I let them bump me. But they had no way to get me to my destination! I guess instead of asking for volunteers, they should have asked for people who really didn’t want to go. Then the flight attendant announced, “we’re really low on food”. Really? This is a SEVEN hour flight!
Pros: Nice crew
Cons: I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
Pros: The dinner was decent
Cons: There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant.
Cons: Left s half hour late because they had to shift cargo, then we taxied on the runway for what seemed like a half hour. My wife and I purchased our tickets in July but could never pick our seats and ended up 9 rows apart.
Pros: Flight was great. Crew was very attentive and the flight was under booked giving my wife and I an empty middle seat. The entertainment was vast consisting of movies and TV shows to pass the time.
Pros: Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy.
Cons: The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all.
Cons: No entertainment and no gate printed on my ticket. My flight to Dallas was delayed and I had to waste time figuring out what gate to take a train to.
Pros: Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early
Cons: Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken.
Pros: Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff
Cons: Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet
Cons: The employees treated me poorly
Cons: No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi
Cons: Extremely old plane
Cons: For a customer-based service, I found it disturbing that one of the flight attendants was abrasive to passengers on this flight.
Cons: crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous
Cons: Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead.
Pros: It was not a full flight, so I was given an aisle instead of a middle seat...for which I was grateful.
Cons: Flight was 6 hours...almost as much as my previous international flight, yet food and drink was only available for purchase. No entertainment options. Plus, wireless was $21! I needed to work and had to purchase, but that is really quite a rip off compared to other airlines.
Pros: This flight was amazing! The crew was friendly and helped me when I had a panic attack from flying. It was very appreciated
Cons: Bad as above
Cons: I asked the woman at the gate prior to boarding if there were electrical outlets on the plane. She looked it up and said, its an Airbus, yes they have outlets at each seat. I didn't worry too much about charging my devices at my layover because I knew I could charge them on the plane. When I got on it was clear that there was no outlets, no video on the backs of seats, no devices being handed out for purchase. Nothing. I'm definitely used to more updated planes, but I would have been ok without the misinformation. I ended up on a 4 hr flight bored out of my gourd—which could have been avoided.
Cons: Despite arriving more than an hour ahead of time, I had to wait in a long line to get to the ticket counter and by the time I got there the assistant refused to check my bag. I then had the choice of catching another flight standby, possibly not even arriving on the same day, or changing my ticket for an obscene amount of money. I hope to never deal with AA again.
Cons: As it was the continuation of an international flight, I believe I travelers like me deserved to be treated with free food and not just drink and water.
Pros: Chairs were very comfy and wider than some airlines.
Cons: Crew not overly friendly and not very attentive, and there were lots of empty seats so there wasn't much excuse. Also, I had an issue with the plane. I think no screens on a cross-country flight is not good business. Not everyone is savvy with go-go inflight. And if there are no screens, could there at least be outlets? I was so tired after my Paris flight and wanted to chill with some go-go entertainment, but my battery was low and there were no outlets. I know not all flights can have these luxuries, but if the flight is over five hours, I think it should be better equipped.
Pros: I was upgraded to the comfort economy after waiting 10 hours at DFW for my flight.
Cons: After being in DFW airport for 10hrs all I wanted to do was watch a movie on board and sleep. Go figure, my TV didn't work. I called the attendant and she said she would reset them. The "resetting process" took a while. She attempted, and the other stewardess did as well. They said that the TV issue that *some* of the people were experiencing wasn't able to be fixed by them and only by the company that provides it's service. So there wasn't anything that could be done. I know that at least the two guys that were traveling next to me had issues with the tv monitors as well. It was just driving it home that I will never fly on American Airlines again. I don't ask for much these days while flying, it's not like it's a luxury anymore. But the saddest part is that customer satisfaction is completely out of the question. Just pay the extra money and fly another airline. -Deidre Fugate
Cons: No in flight movie
Pros: I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again
Pros: I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much.
Cons: My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight.
Pros: Unable to Rate food & entertainment (night flight) I can, however, rate comfort since it was the worst crammed in seating ever!! They talk about the increase in violent behavior. Perhaps American Air could step up to the plate and offer a bit of comfort for hard working passengers. How? Easy to figure out!! Give us leg room for crying out loud.
Cons: Crammed seating... No leg room.... Volunteered to check carry on... (Big mistake) had a longish wait for bags..
Pros: The young woman running the admirals club front desk was excellent Friday July 29
Cons: Never made it because first leg was canceled
Pros: Everything was great
Cons: USB outlets at seats, footrests in first class
Cons: Friendlier service.
Pros: On time flight
Cons: Gate agent at SF was rude and unprofessional. While waiting, gate agent at gate 65, flight 647 started the following, “group 1 boarding, group 2 boarding...everybody, let’s go let’s go”. She went on to call out one, Hispanic customer with limited English, “come here, you can board now”, rude rude.
Cons: The plane was just too darn hot and the fans were barely working. All of us were melting.
Pros: The crew was amazing and also the space of my seat
Cons: Wish they have a portable TV in my seat
Cons: On time departure. A comfortable seat.
Cons: Seating was brutal. Need to do a better job about being upfront about what you book when you get basic economy. Brutal seating and gouged for baggage
Cons: If the power outlet works reliably, it would be much better. The toilet was really small.
Cons: It's a 6 hour flight and not even a sandwich? Food on boeard is for sale. Same with movies or TV shows.
Pros: Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight
Cons: Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work.
Cons: Airplane was super cold. No extra blankets. Passengers freezing. Impossible to sleep.
Cons: The flight staff was rude, the wrong gas was put in the plane causing a delay, I missed my connection because of this where they wrote it was delayed because "it was snowing in Savannah" which was a blatant lie, but made it so they did not have to help me in any way since their delay was "weather" related. They could not get my to my destination until noon the next day which forced me to buy a new flight on Alaska air. My flight on Alaska was absolutely fantastic and I regret ever buying any United flight and will not in the future.
Pros: On time departure and arrival, friendly staff
Cons: Cramped planes with not enough legroom. Poor food options.
Pros: It was a short flight
Cons: I didn’t like not having to choose our seat assignments after we booked our flight. I have used Kayak on many occasions and I was able to choose my seat after booking. I was not able to do that after I booked my flight.
Pros: On time
Pros: I arrived safely.
Cons: It's a zoo. It's a DIY of checking in and checking your bags in. No staff is around to help. You are on your own. Unorganized.
Cons: I was not able to sit with my husband and the man next to me drank a a bunch of red wine and the attendant brought him whiskey after that until he passed out with his baby over my lap.
Cons: This flight was also late, and this was after having to spend the night in the airport
Cons: United employees could stand to learn some better customer service. I prefer to fly with other airlines for this very reason.
Pros: The employees
Cons: The delay of 3 hours.
Cons: The Capt. Lying to Us and after 40 minutes sitting on the rap being held. The Captain came on and said the delay was Dorothea baggage boys loading the plane aft heavy and incorrectly loaded they had to totally remove every bag and reload the entire baggage and move most of the bags to a forward compartment . Many passengers wanted off but they crew refused Another reason not to fly United I am cancelling my return flight an returning on another airline! United is e worse airline in business today. Do not book on United Everett Johnson Bellevue, Washington
Pros: I liked how there were some (very few) staff that were friendly and helpful. They somewhat eased the nightmare a bit
Cons: There were so many delays that could've easily been avoided. To make matters worse there were two United attendants at the gate hastling every passenger preboarding. The two women were so rude and confrontational. Then I board the plane that I had to be rebooked on because of the delays I missed my connection .. and didn't even get the seat I chose. A woman sat in my seat and refused to move, leaving me with a middle seat next to a lady who was so mean. She kept making rude comments to me throughout my 5 hour flight, and proceeded to get intoxicated. I didn't get home till almost midnight..when I should've been home by 9.
Pros: Having a flight. United Airlines employee at the help desk was very helpful and found the quickest available flight.
Cons: Got my ticket. Had to run through the airport because the layover time was too short (as it has been on MANY of my flights with United). Attendant that took my ticket was actually rude to me about having a ticket on the plane. Boarding was disorganized.
Cons: I was very I'll and could not complete this flight. Was told by airline to call Kayak for changing date of flight for $50 vs $200 they would charge. Ticket was less than $200. I called Kayak. They said sorry it will cost you $200 per airline policy. Either way, this is unacceptable to me. I will stick with Southwest who let's you change flights on all fares if you use it within one year. So since change fee was more than ticket I just ate the cost. Not happy with UNITED or KAYAK. Won't use either one again.
Pros: Crew was new but okay.
Cons: Flight was delayed by an hour or so. Then had a last minute gate change across the airport from my original gate.
Cons: Roundtrip flight to Seattle with a layover, first flight went without incident, so far so good. On the flight back (during a layover) literaly 5 minutes till boarding the plane, the pilot is ready to go, the people are standing in line, United decides it wont make enough $ on the flight and gives it to an Ontario flight. We are canceled and now have to wait 4 additional hours in the airport. Was told it was air traffic control that messed up, not United, which was not even possible and an obvious untruth. Was offered a complimentary bottle of water for the trouble. Classic united.
Pros: No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner
Pros: We were delayed due to some maintenance issues, but the crew did a great job of keeping us updated on what was happening. Other than that, a normal flight.
Pros: All fights.. On time made it home safely Friendly crew both ways..
Cons: Entertainment should be easier to access.. And Free!!
Cons: One of the crew members at the gate! I believe her name was Jackie or jaciquiene at SF was the most inconsecrate women I have ever met! She was yelling at me to put my bag in the bag to see if it will fit. She was completely rude and acted like she hated her job! I will NEVER fly with UNITED again! I will be contacting United regarding this issue as well! The other lady at the gate called her led and after that she contacted her supervisor and they also didn't let me on the flight! This was the worst experience I have EVER had! I will NEVER FLY WITH UNITED AGAIN.
Pros: I thought the newer model 737 with the ambient lighting and redesigned overhead compartments gives the plane a less claustrophobic feel. The pilots did a great job navigating through potential turbulence and the flight crew was attentive and on point. A better experience than the crew on the flight from Seattle to Houston four days before. It is my understanding that Continental crews remained intact upon the merge and my assumption was this was a Continental crew versus the United crew that was not as good.
Cons: The boarding process with the arbitrary assignment of boarding group 5 giving us no chance to bring our one bag on the plane. There is no real enforcement of the carton policies of these airlines which makes it frustrating for those who follow the rule only to be punished and forced to check the bag and go through baggage claim.
Pros: Our names are Steve and Jan Hovde if you have any other questions about our flight concerns. We can be reached by phone at 360-332-8414. We did not call FAA, but still very much a concern. We have flown United other times and many other airlines and many Boeing 737's...we noticed other passengers looking at each other because of the clunking and growling sounds.
Cons: most important I vowed I would try and call FAA about safety concerns with the plane. Mechanical noises prior to take off , during flight(right fan whine) - could hear it when started engines in SF., Some loud clunking at take off bringing in landing wheels and again letting down for landing in Seattle. When plane came to stop at the gate, again some noises we have never heard before on 737's. Please check out that plane more closely. Part of our concern is that Pilot mentioned before take off that they had problems with scheduled 737 and they needed extra time to locate another 737 that could be used(Why our take off was rescheduled twice and different gate)......it seemed that one that had been mothballed may have been brought out to use......We did mention some of this tactfully to stewardess' standing near exit when we got off the plane(She seemed surprised and wondered what we were talking about. We were so thankful we made it. We just figured that flight crew would be tracking these odd noises and pass along to captain if he couldn't hear.
Cons: The difference in entertainment options between different United flights is frustrating. Unlike some flights, which offer a bunch of free movies and shows you can watch on your phone or tablet, this flight offered a small selection of movies I could pay $8 for access to, which started at pre-determined times so you might pay for them and not even be able to catch the movie from the beginning. My original flight offered an outlet to charge my phone and a fairly large selection of free movies, so I watched 3 movies and the time went by quickly. My return flight did have an outlet, but I didn't want to pay for a bad selection of movies that I couldn't pause or start from the beginning, so it felt like a much longer flight.
Pros: Mr Anthony Brown, gate crew for United in Chicago remembered that I had asked for an aisle seat and, when one became available, he made sure I got it. I was so grateful for his consideration and professionalism.
Cons: No entertainment system. Few bathrooms. More cramped.
Cons: Confusions on dates from Internet. Your site usually sets its own dates without confirming.
Pros: We didn't crash.
Cons: The United app told us we missed our connection so we had to go stand by on this flight. We later discovered that the original flight was delayed an hour and we could have easily made it. We were told that this fight was overbooked. We almost waited on an even later flight. Luckily we stayed at the gate and found that this flight was in fact only half full. United IT sucks. The entertainment system is horrible. With one exception the FAs were bitter and angry.
Pros: Crew was gracious, helpful, and courteous during a terrible and disruptive ordeal for passengers
Cons: Being stuck for nearly an hour sweating on a plane with no AC while mechanics were trouble shooting, only to find out that we had to exit the plane, and that it could not fly. Passengers had no idea what to do - whether another plane would be sent for us, whether United would reimburse our ticket if we arranged another flight on our own, etc. We were left to fend for ourselves. I had a wedding to get to with many pre-wedding events, starting this evening. So, I looked for another flight, found one, booked it, and went to United customer service to request reimbursement for my ticket. I was told that United had just learned that another plane was coming for us and would arrive in 30 minutes, at 8:10. (My original flight had been at 6:35). The other flight I had booked was at 10:30 pm. So, United customer service changed canceled my new booking and put me back to my original flight, now arriving at 8:10 and boarding at 8:50. The plane did arrive, but we did not board until 10:50 pm. My flight left at 11:02 pm. Bottom line is that my flight was delayed 4.5 hours. I missed an important event that I was supposed to host. I missed my only opportunity to see a dear friend (and guest of honor) - this is someone I have not seen in person for ten years and was the guest of honor at tonight's celebration that I was supposed to host and missed. Furthermire, I could not carry on a bag that I have carried on for years, and that would have easiky fit. Having to check my bag left me without my phone charger. Of course, the fact that we were 4.5 hours delayed meant that I ran out of power shortly into our long flight from Washington. to Seattle. And the food was awful - stale nuts, . ;, b:;
Pros: Polite staff
Cons: The boarding process was chaotic. Overhead bins were full, but flight attendants were not available to help people struggling to find a place for their baggage. They should've offered to gate check baggage
Cons: The delay ruined our evening and made the expense of a hotel for the night and babysitting moot because we might as well have flown the next morning. So much for seeing friends in Seattle on Thursday night. A 2 hour delay means we just get to sleep in an airport hotel for no reason.
Cons: i did not see anywhere when checking in on line that there was a charge for checked bags or that the self checking had to be done 45 minutes prior to departure.
Pros: Everything listed above is accurate of the 1st flight. I had just as much leg room on the 2nd flight as the first with it being even more crowded. Doing well!
Cons: Nothing comes to mind that I would be willing to say anything about.
Pros: While waiting in the terminal for everyone to board and the plane to be cleared you got your options of watching everything on the Direct TV headrest screens. It was interesting to see what people watched at 1am (4am my time).
Cons: Received another handful of snack mix, which was fine. At least I knew not to eat it this time. Once the plan took off, the headrest screens asked you to pay some ridiculous amount of money to watch them for the hour that we were on the plan. I wasn't surprised, but I never found out who killed the lady in my show. Bummer.
Cons: Horrible overlay
Cons: My luggage got lost! No water offered!
Pros: We got lucky and there were two empty seats across the aisle, which happened to have extra leg room, and the one gentleman sitting there, graciously offered to move to the window seat so my husband could sit in the aisle seat. My husband was quite happy that he was able to move just across the aisle from me and have the extra leg room.
Cons: My husband's original seat had a broken jack for headphones and the only thing they could offer was to switch seats with someone that wasn't going to use theirs. Luckily, the man sitting across the aisle heard what was going on and offered his seat to my husband and the gentleman just moved to the window seat. Paying an extra $118 for basically nothing; it's not very clear before you buy it, what exactly your paying the extra money for. On our return flight, we flew American, and the same thing would have only cost us an extra $42. We had to wait in a ridiculously long security line in Chicago and by the time we got to our terminal, 90% of the passengers were already on the flight or in line to enter the plane and that's what we found out we had paid the extra $118 for.
Pros: Lining up in groups
Cons: I was seated next to a morbidly obese man that smelled of feces so bad people many seats away had to cover their noses, overflowed his seat, taking up half of mine, and was watching disgusting pornography on his phone for half the flight, not that I was looking, but it was a bit hard to not notice, he wasn't trying to hide it. The power outlet under my seat did not work, so my phone died, and my armrest(left) was missing it's headphone jack so I couldn't use the in-flight entertainment, not that it would have mattered anyway, the fat man beside me was so huge, his fat covered my armrest so I had no access to the remote. The guy on my right, in the window seat, while not fat, wasn't small either and hogged two armrests, leaving me with none. I had to hold my seatback with my left hand the entire flight because there was nowhere to put my left arm without either holding it straight out in front of me, or laying them on the fat mans stomach which was folded over the armrest to my left. At one point I called a flight attendant and asked if they had any kind of a pillow or something to help my situation because the position I was forced to sit in was horribly uncomfortable and did not support my back, she looked at me confused, said they have nothing like that, and immediately vanished without any suggestion of a seat change or anything, just confused stare and then bolted away. All in all a pretty traumatizing experience, worst flight of my life.
