Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Precautions taken appropriate"
Cons: "Environmental controls, it was a little warm. Seats seemed more uncomfortable than usual. Air vents, lights, too far from aisle seats."
Pros: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The flight didn’t leave on time because the plane wasn’t ready for takeoff (the engines had to be warmed up... WHY would that not be ready when it was time?!) so we left 30 minutes late, didn’t make up any lost time at all in the air and we ended up missing our connecting flight because of it all."
Pros: "I have used Delta long time. Used to be really bad. Today. Good good."
Cons: "Free beer"
Cons: "Miniature candy bars are not sufficient for an hour and a half flight."
Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"
Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"
Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."
Cons: "Paid for particular seat within 2-3 rows of back galley as unaccompanied minor for my son. For his comfort, he chose an aisle seat. Flight attendants onboard moved him to farthest back row in window seat and he was not able to get out to use the lavatory easily."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about the experience and flight was the Delta Sky Club"
Pros: "The flight attendant from IAD to MSP called Bernadette was wonderful!"
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: "All aspects"
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 crew"
Cons: "The turbulence. Poor california git lits of smoke."
Pros: "Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable."

Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."
Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"
Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"
Cons: "The new plane has NO leg room at all. It’s the worst leg room i’ve Experienced for such a large plane. I’m 6’1” and my knees would only fit if I spread my legs wide and sit back deep into the chair."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t very friendly"
Pros: "Nice big plane."
Pros: "The crew made a really uncomfortable situation (maintenance on an antenna for an hour after we had boarded the plane but before we left the gate) bearable. All flight attendants and the pilot and co-pilot were pleasant and sympathetic to the frustration."
Cons: "I think there needs to be an additional element to the seat selector that does not allow two very big guys to sit next to each other, thereby making all three seats very unpleasant- and I say this as one of the big guys."
Cons: "We boarded on time and were ready to leave the gate early. Somehow the pilot and air traffic controller managed to take 1 hour for de ice and takeoff even though we were 2nd in the queue. No excuse!"
Pros: "I purchased round trip tickets to Cancun Mexico for under $400. And I received 1st class upgrades both ways. I could not be happier with my travel."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, besides the flight was slightly delayed but not by long"
Cons: "Enhanced security procedures are onerous and caused the flight to be delayed 20+ minutes. Too many TSA staff at PLN doing too many things horribly inefficiently. Extra precautions (testing a Ziploc bag of cookies and several chocolate bars for explosive materials) did not make me feel safer or less inconvenienced by the theatrics of security."
Pros: "Cabin crew was good."
Cons: "This flight had at least 5 gate changes in three different terminals. We had serious jet lag and did not need to go roaming all over the Atlanta airport."
Pros: "The staff was excellent, and very patient with the customers"
Cons: "Being 6'2", the leg room left a lot to be desired, and I was cramping after approximately 9 hours flight time (flight to Tokyo)."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service in First Class. Had the side with only one seat -- nice to have no neighbors."
Pros: "A simple and pleasant experience!"
Cons: "Everyone was professional and polite."
Pros: "It's Delta so I got miles"
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in. Look for a flight with first class or a bigger plane, they have them"
Pros: "all flights were right on time. service was excellent. crew was very friendly. Comfort+ seating was excellent very comfortable"
Pros: "The trip was short."
Cons: "I didn't care for my engine only window view. Nor did i like that the crew barely served refreshments (other airlines have zero issues with this on a DTW-MDW or ORD with a larger plane and equal amount of flight stewards). The route was also akin to being on a rough patch of sea for an hour."
Pros: "Easy ride back home."
Cons: "Limited options for closed captions video. Any announcement was not mentioned in writing."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Attention to detail, truly caring for the passengers and a nice smile."
Cons: "Everything was first class and there was nothing that was actually decided that was not received."
Pros: "The plane was not so new or good"
Cons: "The plane and the atention"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Seating in ecomony class is very tight, restricting, and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good flight, comfortable; good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept failing"
Pros: "Glad we made it back."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time. Attendants in the airline could have communicated much better to give update on delay, but they did not give any information despite several times getting up to ask questions at the main check-in. Many of the passengers were very discouraged. Plane left nearly 2 hours late due to an unclear maintenance issue, paperwork and also no fuel put in the plane until all passengers we on board."
Cons: "Smooth flight left on time and arrived on time."
Pros: "Crew was. Great"
Cons: "Some thing better to chew on"
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Cons: "delayed almost 5 hours due to “air traffic,” flight had plenty of room and they did not offer any upgrades"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "American has had maintenance delay nightmares all week. Including this flight, where we switched gates and still was delayed significantly."
Pros: "Someone got sick but the crew helped her right away. An ambulance was already waiting for her. Flight despite this arrived on time."
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."
Pros: "Exactly on schedule."
Pros: "The staff on board were excellent, very professional and efficient. Despite the fact we left an hour late, we arrived nearly on time, so kudos to the pilots!"
Cons: "We were delayed but didn’t get any updates from AA staff about new boarding times or gates. The WiFi onboard did not work; we could could connect to it but kept getting “Network Not Available” messages."
Pros: "The airlines don't allow enough room to sit comfortably. I am 6' 2" 250 lbs. My knees touch the back of the seat in front of me and there is no room side to side. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The Jetstar flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Fukuoka and Narita airports had terminals that weren’t connected by a train or even an indoor path. It was covered but it was cold in Narita and Fukuoka required a slow shuttle."
Pros: "Most AA employees on the ground were pleasant. The flight crews were super."
Cons: "Terrible landing in Charlotte.Terrible landing in Charlotte"
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."
Pros: "Nice, friendly crew. Even after a long delat which I'm sure must have frustrated them as much as us!"
Cons: "It can't be better than okay when you are over 2 hours leaving. They gave us some B.S. excuse. They told us an hour before the flight we would be delayed because they had to change a tire. REALLY, 3 hrs. to change a tire????"
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the top compartments. The crew was not very helpful because I almost went into a hypothermia condition because the air in the cabin was extremely cold. When I ask for a blanket one of the stewardesses said that AA would no longer have blankets in flight which I prove it wrong when I saw in the flight Mai-SDQ blanquets all over the cabin. The soliton they gave me was that they would ask the crew to raise the temp in the cabin, I had to make the request three times and I had to tell the stewardess that if not raising the temperature in the cabin I could have gone into an emergency hypothermia crisis. I had to take another shirt from my carry-on to put it over my shirt to warm me up."
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"
Cons: "Delayed for three hours due to weather"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 90 minutes because the incflight mint flight was late"
Cons: "Great trip"
Cons: "Meals were minimal. Entertainment system is archaic. Seats tight and narrow and hard."
Pros: "Food was really good, crew members fantastic. Boarding was a little messy, a mix between anxious passengers and weak organization."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work and there was no way to solve it. It should've been checked before. It was a 9-hours flight with almost nothing to do."
Pros: "food and service by the crew"
Cons: "First of all, the announcements that come on after we take off and last for 20 minutes is very annoying. We have brains, we can figure out how to plug our head phones in to watch the inflight entertainment. After saying the “show” was going to start, it never did. The screens were down the whole time and it remained black. good thing I had my phone with a movie on it, or I would be very bored for the 3 1/2 hour flight. Never flying with American Airlines again."
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."
Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."
Cons: "3 hours on the run way because of a series of stupid things. Made it to NYC before connection. Would not hold flight. Eventually was let on connection because tires needed to be changed. American Airlines Plane. Very old. Should have been remodeled 10 years ago."
Pros: "Everything was organized pleasant staff,"
Pros: "AA canceled my flight to sell to others for more money."
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Pros: "The plane was cleaned, the movie was good and the food was good with lower price. It was a no problem flight and on time."
Cons: "They closed the counter too early , missed flight Did mot accommodate although I was there 50 minites prior to the flight"
Pros: "Plenty of food and drink on the flight. Having your own choice of movies and TVs to watch helped pass the time."
Pros: "Online boarding passes a great idea"
Cons: "Don't like to pay extra to reserve seats. Seating is overcrowded - poor leg room."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was friendly, cordial which is not good at all on flights by United Airlines, Delta American Airlines and Air Canada. Flight from Miami-Sao Paulo was nice and no too long as when I fly through Toronto by Air Canada or through Chicago by USA airlines."
Cons: "Unexplained delay, more than 4 hours. Terrible"
Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."
Cons: "Both flights delayed. A six and a half hour drive took nine and a half hours by air."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"
Cons: "Our 10:40AM flight got cancelled. We had to wait in line until 1AM with regular check-ins to rebook for 8:40AM. When we made it to the airport again after limited sleep, that flight also got cancelled. We bought a ticket with LATAM which was a breeze. Throughout the following week, we tried calling them numerous times to have them tell us we had to loose yet more time by having to go to their Cusco office... but they couldn't resolve the issue either. We had to escalate this over the phone from their office so they would issue us a flight back to Lima at no charge to us. Now, I can only hope that they will honor this ticket but I'm not expecting much."
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "Flight was oversold so they upgraded us to first class at no charge"
Pros: "Seat comfort, the crew and the actual flight were good."
Cons: "Due to the extended delay I didn't get back to my apartment in NYC and to sleep until after 3 a.m."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Pros: "Seat was more comfortable than most airlines, arrival was early"
Cons: "The crew was grump,y even when I checked in at the counter it was as if they couldn't be bothered to do their job. I have not experienced this on other American flights. The crew will at least attempt a smile and greating, not at Piarco. When we arrived to Miami it took 2 hours to receive our luggage and no one told us why, we just stood there, waiting around like it was the 2nd coming of Jesus.... I'm glad I can still smile, hopefully the Trini staff can too"
Cons: "Why are you bothering me with a survey after your already inconvenienced me with a flight I had to cancel? No notification that this flight would not make my connection in time. No alternatives given. Horrible customer service all around."
Pros: "Not a lot!"
Cons: "We had about seven wheelchair passengers booked on this flight and no one had a clue how to manage it. two ended up being carted off to other gates and the rest boarded slowly, resulting in a 40 minute delay departing. When we got to Charlotte there were planes backed up, another 20 minutes to get to a gate. My 90 minute leisurely stroll to my next flight morphed into a race across three concourses. Charlotte is a nightmare under the best conditions, this just sucked."
Pros: "Excellent leg room in standard seating. On-time with quick and efficient boarding process."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time."
Cons: "The flight attendant checking people’s bags and boarding passes at the gate was not friendly."
Cons: "A place to out my bottle of water"
Cons: "The boarding process. And how the flight attendants speak to the customers; I found a bit abrasive and insensitive for no real reason."
Cons: "It wasn’t explained to me that Zone 2 allowed no storage of bags overhead. What was that $50 fee for? Hidden fees confusing."
Cons: "Pathetic rationale for delay"
Cons: "I booked two tickets at the same time through kayak and was assigned a seat not next to my son! Because the flight was fully booked there was no ability to rearrange seats."
Cons: "The air pressure in the cabin was awful. My ears hurt & it gave me sharp pains in my head. Even typical yawning & blowing nose did not help."
Pros: "Space Seating Hospitality"
Cons: "Maybe complementary snacks"
Pros: "Crew unfriendly, unprofessional, and not courteous,"
Pros: "Short flight but not comfortable and no entertainment"
Cons: "Most flights to Vegas are cheap so not sure why this one was so expensive"
Pros: "Price of ticket. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Baggage limitations are not clear: especially when the ticket says no carryon luggage. What they mean is anything that fits under your seat and is under 20 lbs is OK. Seat did not recline. Leg room was poor."
Pros: "Enjoyed isle seat."
Cons: "Wider seats."
Cons: "Everything went quickly and smoothly. Great flight; even the weather was less turbulent than expected."
Pros: "Price and timeliness"
Cons: "Airline broke the stroller we had. That could have gone better."
Cons: "No hot coffee on 7:40am flight. Not right."
Pros: "Nice pilot and crew."
Cons: "The warning about alcohol was a bit sarcastic, but I guess in today's world people who have acted out are the real culprits..."
Pros: "I finally got home"
Cons: "We took off 3 hours late. No transparency about what the delay was or how long, they just kept stringing us along 30 minutes to an hour at a time."
Cons: "Be on time, 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Early out and early in."
Pros: "Timing was good"
Cons: "Not a glass of water was offered. Who wants alcohol in the morning?"
Pros: "For a “no frills” airline I like the modern aircraft, professional and friendly crew and on time departure and arrival. The flight is too short for entertainment or food service but the snacks and drinks for sale are varied and acceptably priced."
Cons: "The ground crew got something stuck in the snow and we can't get off the plane because of that."
Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."
Pros: "On time and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Old plane,"
Cons: "Our engine seats at the rear of the plane were of course a little noisy at first. We got these seats on both our flights. Hoped that at least one-way we would have managed seats with a window."
Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "I arrived safely Tommy Destination"
Cons: "It was so hot boarding and unloading. There was no air. Staff was curt and not very friendly as of assistance."
Pros: "Great cost. Boarding and crew were seamless and pleasant."
Cons: "As with all airlines, it has all the comfort of a cattle car. No drink service - even water cost you money."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours late. We were supposed to leave at 6:06 PM and didn't leave until about 11:10 PM. We were supposed to get into Asheville at about 8:00 PM, but finally arrived about 1:00 AM. I fly this route frequently and Allegiant has a terrible problem with on-time flights and communications with passengers waiting for their flights. I am not certain what the problem is, but it is a significant issue with them. Captain was "bubbly" and upbeat without properly managing the passengers' expectations. Bad public relations."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "45 minute delay my 1st flight and a 2 hour delay on the 2nd. It's become so late so consistently that I don't even bother to arrive early anymore."
Pros: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."
Cons: "We sat for five hours waiting for a thunderstorm to end on a hot plane with no drinks."
Pros: "Crew was great and handled the delay well. Definitely worth the 6 bucks each way to get the seats with additional leg room."
Cons: "This the 2nd time I've flown from Punta Gorda to Indy in the last month and both times the departures were delayed because of mechanical issues. No vouchers offered + no free anything offered = Bad customer service model. This airline also charges for carry-ons."
Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."
Cons: "My flight to Vegas was cancelled the day of the trip, so the trip back did not exist for me. How does an airline do business this way? I had hotel booked and lost out on money."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind."
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Cons: "Seats are ridiculously close, hard and incredibly uncomfortable. Round trip both flights delayed. First and last time"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful!!"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hard landing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour for "paperwork". Can't be helped by the crew, but an administrative errors are just as bad."
Pros: "landed safe ."
Cons: "long delay . actual usual delays with airline . with out exception get very sick every time i fly with allegiant . makes me question proper hygentic maintaince / ventallation system vac and clean. i fly jet blue,southwest and virgin, usually with out illness. if there are health checks by the airline , post them !"
Pros: "The from take off to landing was smooth"
Cons: "Have no dislikes"
Pros: "Flight was on time with a very pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was canceled but they keep telling us that in an hour and that hour never came. We are stuck at the airport. We should get upgraded to 1st class"
Pros: "Great service even better price!"
Pros: "Delayed. Boarded. Unboarded. Left sitting when announced 'low fuel'. Claims of weather. Pulled up radar, zero weather to be found!"
Pros: "It was cheap and was no different than other flights I have taken."
Cons: "Their station at the airport didn't open until about an hour before my flight."
Cons: "No exchange available"
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our flight were very nice and accommodating."
Pros: "On time and great professional staff throughout"
Cons: "Wi-Fi, as usual, was not working. Plus, there were no screens in the seat, so passengers have to rely on their own smartphones/tablets/magazines/books to keep entertained."
Cons: "Crew was not nice and friendly."
Pros: "Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed then to top it off we sat on the tarmac awaiting to off load in DesMoines. We spent just as much time waiting to off load as we did in flight!"
Pros: "Eventually got to Chicago"
Cons: "Missed my connection"
Pros: "Early arrival to DSM."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "We were delayed taking off from Denver due to snow storm. The crew was communicative and accommodating."
Pros: "Well, I got there."
Cons: "Purchased economy plus bundle. United employee closed gate in my face at ORD. United Club toilets were filthy and the worst of my problems was the ridiculous selection of teas. (Toilets outside of United Club much cleaner.) I had an economy plus seat, but this did not allow me to board early. So I boarded late and there was no seat in front of me. So I could not put my carry on in front of me. I asked if I could put my bag in top, but attendant told me that I had to ask the first class person in front of me for a favor and thank them for the favor. I did. But this was one of the more disgusting experiences that I have had on an airplane and I paid an extra 100 USD for the privilege of it."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Thanks"
Cons: "Cannot think of a thing"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Nothing - it was fine. We got home!!"
Pros: "Got me from point A to B"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing, very skimpy on drinks, coffee maker didn't work. Ask volunteers to move to back of plane to balance out weight."
Pros: "The crew was one of most pleasurable group that I've flown with. Polite AND funny!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick. The flight didn't take as long as listed. Overall satisfied with the experience"
Pros: "Kayak did not notify us of a flight cancellation and we were delayed by one day and out over 450$."
Cons: "They are never on time, we had to stay in Chicago and miss two days of vacation because there was no flight crew. It seems they can never get their act together, and it never changes."
Pros: "It was good. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 4 times...but I was kept updated."
Pros: "Will bw traveling to chicago then to iowa"
Cons: "Flight delay and itenirary changed"
Cons: "Seat and seatbelt to small"
Pros: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"
Cons: "No room for bags"
Pros: "The people on the flight with me"
Cons: "The flight attendants were cocky and then my flight was worse overall my flights in all were horrible with united . I've never been sick on a plain and I got so sick for the landings"
Pros: "Arrival was late and United held the connecting flight! Thanks United."
Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ，7:30 pm to 11:45pm"
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!"
Pros: "I would give a 1 star ! Cancelled flight and by the time we reached home it was 2.30 in the morning ! Which is unacceptable ."
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: "The flight I was able to get on eventually had pleasant crew and arrived early."
Cons: "Where to start.... they "delayed" my flight for 11 hrs from 5:55pm to 0700am due to "weather" so no hotel or food vouchers would be issued. THEY ALSO SAID "don't bother going stand by for the other two flights leaving this evening as they will be overbooked or "cancelled" as well. When I walked to customer service they stated it was NOT cancelled but rather "rescheduled due to operational issues" then they put me on stand by for the next flight leaving in a couple hours. I boarded that flight only to be pulled out of my seat the last second before the gate closed saying there was an error and there were two "Fishers" and I was in one of thier seats. After closing the door and departing the gate the agent said "whoops" I guess it was a small child that was to be on the parents lap. "Sorry" as the plane left with an empty seat that I had been sitting in. After a long conversations with the supervisor they finally were able to book me on the last flight out that night arriving in DM at 12:15 in am. I had to dig my original boarding pass out of the garbage as they had refused to put me in first class... an upgrade I had paid for. After being lied to repeatedly about status of plane and bumped from flight due to incompetent gate agent I was able to finally procure a $10 food voucher (a beer is $11 at the airport. There are additional bungles including lost luggage and more to this saga but I think you get the picture."
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: "The flight attendants did a wonderful job keeping guests informed and mitigating potential problems"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed over two hours due to a late arriving plane We were again delayed over an hour because our flight would place the pilot with more hours than accepted by safe flying standards (didn't they know this ahead of time? When we were initially delayed?!?) The seats were SO uncomfortable. All I wanted was sleep, but they only reclined a couple of inches"
Pros: "Flight attendant very personable."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Aisel seating has barely any underseat space compared to the middle and window seats. A person has to sit at an angleto keep feet from ending up in the aisle. Not a great position for an extended flight. Charging Outlets were broken."
Cons: "No help from the flight attendants before we landed to inquire to see if the connecting flight would wait - just MINUTES!"
Cons: "Late night flight to begin with then mechanical issues so more delay which made it later. Chicago ground folks were very good at keeping us informed on the status."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "It landed in Des Moines 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Flight, when it the air, was fine. But..."
Cons: "We arrived from Tampa about 8:00am to discover shortly later that flight 558 would be delayed to 9:30am. Then at 9:30 it was announced the plane is to be delayed to 10:30. Shortly after that announcement it was announced a gate change and further delay to 11:30. Then another delay to 12:20. finally departed."
Pros: "Professionalism of check-in staff"
Cons: "Unfriendly flight attendant"
Pros: "Everything went as it should. Very happy."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Fast boarding, pleasant crew, nice leg room!"
Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."
Pros: "The fact that you serve a small complimentary drink and snack on such a short flight was extremely appreciated. It seems most airlines either won't serve on a short flight or charge you extra. Also, I absolutely love the new seats on the planes you guys have been using for quite a while now. They're much more sleek/minimalist so they don't take up as much room. As a disabled person, the bulky seats still employed by many planes on other airlines are incredibly hard on me getting in and out of the seat isles. The crew was very efficient and kind. I also appreciate the thank you to military personnel that they announced at the end of the flight."
Cons: "My gate was moved a few minutes prior to scheduled boarding. It was a minor inconvenience. Flight was a bit late getting out, but still arrived at designated time. Complimentary Wifi would be pretty nice, but not expected."
Pros: "Great ticket counter staff!"
Cons: "Overbooking a flight by this much is obscene. When an aircraft goes down, everyone loses."
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."
