Airline reviews

Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."

Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."

Cons: "Seats are tiny"

Pros: "Kind staff, comfortable seats, movies, easy flight - pretty much everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing- it went very smoothly."

Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The flight and crew were great. But I was not able to choose my seat because I purchased an economy flight. I was very uncomfortable. But I was luck that that people that were sitting with me were great."

Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"

Pros: "Amount of food!"
Cons: "Quality of food!"

Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."

Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should be assigned when we checked in. They weren't for the second leg. But, the seats are fine."

Cons: "2nd Delta flight on the same day that was delayed. This one only 44 min."

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."

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"

Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Very small plane"

Pros: "Had a great experience with Delta all around. Seating and crew were lovely, in flight entertainment was great. Overall, very pleasant experience and flight was on time."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was quite bad"

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"

Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Pros: "The flight is short and easy."
Cons: "I always try to purchase an aisle seat. I feel like there is more room and I don’t feel trapped against a window. This flight a man with very broad shoulders sat in the middle seat. I felt like he should have paid for half my ticket since he sat in half my seat. Thankfully the flight is short. Had it been my second flight I would have been quite upset."

Pros: "Liked that they were pretty stern about boarding by zone Comfy seats Nice staff Good snacks Great movie selection Never realized games were programmed in that head rest. Loved that. Just having the entertainment set on the head rest for every seat makes me prefer this airline over another."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"

They book me another flight which has more connections. When I was waiting for my next flight there were actually more flight going and direct to Geneva before my flight. I even ask the gate personel if There is more seats avilable for one of those flight before my flight. They said yes but because I had a luggage it will take time to transfer my luggage and they will end up being delayed. United airlines is HORRIBLE!!! My flight were delayed and with that they should have more consideration for those costumers who were delayed. But instead of being kind and considerate. They had book me a later flight and the worse thing is the itenerary had more connections. Very Exhausting. The other costumer when we were in the line at the costumer service desk some people were given flight which are like 12 hrs away. How Horrible service. I WILL NOT FLY WITH UNITED AIRLINES AGAIN. Very POOR SERVICE."

Cons: "As a military spouse I was not allowed to check a bag free so I paid the fee. When I boarded I noticed many passengers bringing bags on that we're as big as the one I just paid for. They either checked for free or brought it on and managed to shove it in sideways taking up space that others needed. Some people brought three bags on!!! As a military spouse I feel cheated to have had to pay when others checked in for free at the gate. Not cool United, either let the spouse check in for free or make everyone abide by the so-called rules of one carry on that actually fits into that metal baggage guide. I would like a refund of 50.00 for the baggage fees I paid for this trip."

Cons: "They gave me the last seat in the airplane"

Pros: "The friendly and comfortable atmosphere!"
Cons: "PHX is a large airport, and my emailed ticket said Brussles Airlines, Terminal 4. First off, Brussles Airlines is not a carrier at PHX, and secondly no one knew that United was their partner. There was no information provided to me to go to United, which was in Terminal 2. After making a phone call to Brussles Airlines, I ended up getting to the check in gate ten minutes after boarding started. It was a lovely rest of the trip after that though! But please include partner information im the email next time!"
