Cons: "Maybe better snack"

Cons: "No problems at all!"

Pros: "For a puddle jumper jet it was amazingly comfortable. Even had enough room to put both feet and a carry on bag under the seat. And the seats were more comfortable relative to the competition (eg. United and US Air)."
Cons: "Seats can always be more roomy but that is a problem with all puddle jumper jets."

Cons: "I feel like all the problems the aircraft had it should've been repaired before trying to use it, upon boarding they told us the left engine had to be started from an external source, as a new flyer that was terrifying to hear"

Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."

Pros: "Didn’t like security. They were rude"
Cons: "Security"

Pros: "William the flight attendant was very friendly and provided great service! When the row next to us was open he suggested me to move over, making the flight spacious and comfortable!

Pros: "Got exit seats with extra leg room at no charge . Flight was quick and crew was very accomadating and friendly. Very good at providing updates and delays"

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."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not board this flight as the previous one from Tokyo was late by an hour. Delta did not do ANYTHING to help us pass immigration and customs the fastest possible way. They sent us with the luggage to another terminal and had no signs or attendants to tell us where we recheck the bags. In the end we were late for the flight but Delta did not care!!! They tried putting me on a flight to SLC with a connection! Overall, I am VERY unhappy with them! Zero stars is what they deserve."

Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"

Pros: "Let’s face it-no one likes a 14 hour flight. But the staff was great, food pretty good, movies flew by and we arrived early and happy and bags at baggage claim by the time we got"

Pros: "The stewardess was extremely polite, though the pilot was less chatty (probably due to lack of turbulence during the flight). Decided to risk drinking the coffee again, and was pleasantly surprised that it actually tasted good."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"

Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."

Pros: "all flights were right on time. service was excellent. crew was very friendly. Comfort+ seating was excellent very comfortable"

Pros: "the meal was OK and they served ice cream midway between SFO and JFK."
Cons: "Late departure. Long delay getting to the get because of congestion at Terminal 4."

Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."

Pros: "I always have a great experience on Delta! Thank you"

Pros: "Very smooth"

Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."

Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."

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

Cons: "Too many boarding calls for different levels of service."

Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."

Cons: "Same shows & movies"

Pros: "Crew needs to smile more! :)"
Cons: "warm food!"

Pros: "Flight, plane, and crew were great."

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

Pros: "Crew was good, food was good."

Pros: "El asiento Premier cómodo . Acceso a Fast Track en inmigración"
Cons: "Salón premier en terminal 2 para vuelos internacionales tiene que mejorar . Buen servicio en el avión pero no excelente cómo ha sido en otras ocasiones"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Old Plane, My seat control had an error message, service could improve a lot it was a first class ticket and I had no service at all... I had just ONE DRINK during all the flight. Flight attendants were MIA the whole time. Food service was regular. I am completely disappointed of Aeromexico"

Pros: "Everything after takeoff was fine, except where plane landed, extremely far from terminal, even by bus."
Cons: "We had an almost 5 hour flight delay! Got to Los Angeles after 1am and hotel, after having to go through customs, after 2 am!! Bus ride from plane to terminal once landed is extremely long."

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: "Perfect timing, pilots throttled up to catch up on a delayed departure, absolutely bang on. Cabin crew were great. Comfortable seats with recline."

Pros: "It was quick and easy to get through everything"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Crew standing in the back talking to each other with their backs on us"

Pros: "A long story short, I had to check my carry-on bag in order to get sealed duty free liquor through the Mexico city airport. I was able to eventually get the bag checked gratis due to the circumstances. It took half a dozen AeroMexico staff to get there, but I did."

Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."

Pros: "Close for connecting and had lots of staff to get you there on time."
Cons: "Food mediocre"

Pros: "The flight attendants were so friendly and happy."

Pros: "They had good movies in the plane"
Cons: "There were two runways in Mexico City and one was under maintenance so it took a long time from the moment we landed to the time we were able to get out of the plane. Then, they took our check-in luggage from the plane and it went through an inspection (bag by bag), so this caused another hour delay. After that they gave us our check-in luggage for us to take it to another location (to another floor) within the airport to be checked-in again. They wanted to charge us $20.00 additional per check-in bag even though they were half of the weight limit. After we complained, they dropped this charge. Due to all the delays we lost our connection and we had to book another flight. Not a good experience. We will never make a stop in Mexico in the future."

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Very quick not much to say"

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

Cons: "My hiking shoes were stolen along with a wind breaker"

Pros: "Ontime and pleasant"

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 Aeromexico personal was rude again"
Cons: "They said that we need to paid them the baggage’s and didn’t want to solve the situation. Be Aware if you book a trip with this two airline as you will finish paying twice the baggage fees. THEY STEAL YOUR MONEY!!"

Pros: "inflight entertainment"
Cons: "As they tend to do, three flight delays and changes, totaling almost seven hours with no communication from the airline, leaving all passengers in the dark, no customer service, no one to answer the phones, etc. Long lines to find out no info available, flights taken off screens, no updates. Waited in the Airport from ^ am for a 9 am flight, which finally left at 4 PM. No vouchers, no nothing!!!!!! The customer service would be rated poor if they had any at all"

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

Cons: "Need more food options to ofered"

Pros: "The crue is nice and friendly."
Cons: "The map for choose seats was diferent than the airplane, i payed for a row with nobody in front and i get one line after that. I only payed money for nothing. The food is poor and not tasty."

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

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: "If you have not had the chance to flight in this plan, you have to, it offers more space between seats, and the comfort is in another level. Plenty of choices in entertainment about 20+ movies to choose. Food and service were great."
Cons: "Landing was not the best but considering it was windy, it is acceptable."

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: "The time of departure and arriving was ok"
Cons: "we went to the main desk to see if we can change the fly of my girlfrend so she can fly with me, but the guys of aeromexico say that the fly was over saled, so she take a diferent plane that mine, and when i jump up to the plane i see more than 5 seat empty..."

Pros: "The space on the seats was ok."
Cons: "Food was terrible and not enough on this 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: "I used my miles to get the tickets."
Cons: "None of the crew smiled. They seemed like TSA agents that wanted to stop us from coming in. They seemed mad that we were using their airline."

Pros: "The crew was very polite and helpful as the flight attendant was still new."
Cons: "It was FREEZING on the plane."

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!!!"

Cons: "No criticism"

Cons: "O Hare sucks. Flight always gets delayed."

Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."

Cons: "I'm expecting more from AA. We were delayed for 2.5 hr since we didn't have a pilot !!!!!"

Pros: "When my original flight out of Roanoke was delayed so much that I was going to miss my connection an employee went above and beyond to find me a different flight to ensure I got home that day."
Cons: "The first AA employee basically told me I was out of luck and there was nothing he could do, which was incorrect and he just didnt want to do everything he could to help me like the other employee eventually did."

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!"

Pros: "Crew worked hard."
Cons: "premium service was good including extra seat space"

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: "I appreciate that I was able to switch seats thereby giving the cat and its owner more room."
Cons: "I have to say I was very surprised that there would be a passenger flying next to me with a cat in a carrier seated next to me."

Cons: "7pm flight, received flight delayed notification at 11am that day. How do you anticipate a delay 8 hours prior to a flight. Delay allowed me about 10 minutes to sprint through the lovely Charlotte airport. To finish off my trip, American Airlines manages to misplace my carry on that was required to be tagged and stowed. I handed it to the individual right outside the plane to be stowed. How does the bag not get in the same plane?!?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Awful boarding and baggage policies"

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

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"

Pros: "Same as above. Very pleased"

Pros: "Entertainment, seating room"

Pros: "Friendly welcoming stay"
Cons: "No dis likes"

Pros: "Nice seats. Comfortable. Fast, efficient boarding, but it was a small plane and not nearly full, although full enough that I couldn't have a seat next to my husband."
Cons: "They split up my husband and I. One screen for every 4 rows of seats playing one in-flight movie. Apparently there was WiFi that you could download an app for and watch other stuff, but no good selection at all, and since I had no way to charge my phone, it didn't seem a great idea to waste the battery. Only food for over 4 hours of sitting on the runway and flight was a bag of mini pretzels."

Pros: "Smooth in every way."

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!"

Cons: "Nothing bad about the trip"

Cons: "Flight got canceled for over a week."

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

Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."

Cons: "Crew not that friendly towards everyone."

Pros: "Great flight on time for a change! Landing was flawless on the way back although delayed a few minutes"

Pros: "The crew was great and getting 2 meals was very nice."
Cons: "My headphone jack kept malfunctioning (loud popping noises in my earbuds) while watching the movie and all the reading lights came on and stayed on the majority of the flight so sleeping was difficult."

Cons: "Boarded small plane too early Air conditioning did not work...sweated whole flight No beverage service seats too small for an adult, and I am only 5'-5""

Pros: "The flight was right on time. Also, in first class it seemed to me we had more legroom than on similar Delta flights."

Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."

Pros: "Avianca originally denied me a boarding pass because of a broken ankle injury sustained while on vacation. After a lot of arguing with the check in staff I was 'allowed' to purchase an upgrade to fist class. The Cusco checkin staff (except one) should be ashamed. The flight crew was fantastic."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and the crew"

Cons: "NA"

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

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"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Pros: "Comfortable , quick. For us it was great not to have to stop at another hub and walk all over to another gate and plane."
Cons: "United promises 1 free bag per passenger if booking w a united points credit card. Well I've never had this problem b4 but would not proceed thru check in w/o paying $25 per each of us. That was using kiosk and a real live person. That really frosts my - well, u know. Now I have to fight online, not even w a real person who would understand , to get $ back. I hope!"

Cons: "Food ."

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "not much. only bless the gate agents for being able to rebook the plethora of travelers like me who get stranded."
Cons: "United Airlines constantly overbooks so you either don't get on, or you make the connecting flight. On my recent trip, I had to be rebooked on both flights to my destination, and both flights home. They really suck."

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: "United delayed departure from ROA due to a crew and mx scheduling problem. Unable to make BOI connection. Not back until next day."
Cons: "United reflowed aircraft and aircrew to other "more important " flights."

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

Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"

Pros: "Flight attendant very personable."
Cons: "No complaints"

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: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."

Pros: "Crew was very good, plane was clean."
Cons: "Although we all know we have less seating room with narrow seats and barely enough room to get in and out of seats, this particular plane has taken this to an extreme."

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."
