Maybe not treat the passengers like cattle.

Very good service, on time, excelent. Equipment

Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Cons: "Too many delays."
Pros: "It was a safe flight"
Cons: "2nd time my jet blue flight was delayed and caused me to Miss my connection, which negatively affected my plans with my friends I was netting in Philly. I get that delays happen- but it’s the last two times I’ve flown jet blue -very disappointing."
Pros: "I really like the vast selection of movies."
Cons: "Tvs weren’t working. Also was 30 minute dely which in turn made us rush and just make our connecting flight. But apparently our luggage wasn’t as lucky. It did not arrive in Orlando which made us wait another 2 hours for the plane to arrive with them. They arrived ruffled and my zipper was brok"
Cons: "I’m so sick of people abusing the overhead bins with their multiple items. It’s your plane, do something about it"
Pros: "Crew was great"

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "On time and quick boarding. The ticketing and gate agent Joel was fantastic."
Cons: "The flight attendant in the front of the plane was not friendly from boarding throughout the flight. He witnessed a woman move the snack s to accommodate her carry on and waited until the plane was full to reprimand here. He didn't even say please he just blurted "Don't ever do that again"! His arms were constantly crossed and legs tapping in an aggravated and defensive manner. Maybe he should ne be on the early flight. Other than that the seat backs were to short and flight media was inoperative. Then on the way out when I thanked Jay he was non responsive. I felt like he was being inconvenienced by our presence. If you ask me he was even rude with his coworkers on the phone. I'm glad it was only a 55 min flight. Two sentence's for what was good and all of this for one person that made it a bad experience."
Pros: "I liked how the boarding process was simple and fast to get one the plane. Everything went smoothly from beginning to end."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about this flight, it was only 50 minutes long so you can't really settle in much anyways."
Pros: "the flight crew was nice."
Cons: "i hate the delay. they delayed the flight because they had to switch planes. i missed my friends funeral because of this. i will never fly with Jetblue again."
Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"
Pros: "average flight. Friendly crew."
Cons: "There is no online check in! Kayak sells multi-airline flights with airlines from different alliances and that does not allow you to check in online. We got to airport at 3:45 am- no one at the check in counter, employees finally arrived at 4 am, checked in, but then we don’t have seats asssigned! We get to the gate and wait-wait-wait until almost 5am and finally the employees were able to find someone willing to move so that myself and kids don’t get seats in emergency exit row. Nuts. Very unpleasant(not the employees, those were nice-it’s the check in and seat assignment policies)."
Pros: "They lost my bag"
Pros: "Their services and wifi"
Cons: "So far nothing, with my experienced"
Pros: "Flight was over 40 minutes late."
Cons: "That the flight was forty minutes late...and the lady at the desk couldn't speak understandable English...it makes you look bad."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."
Pros: "Prior to our flight, our captain made a joke and everyone enjoyed it. The flight attendants were friendly. I enjoyed one of the snacks (Popcorners) and I have never had that as an option on any other flight before. (Although, food would have been a greater alternative.)"
Cons: "There was a little bit of turbulence, which is never fun. (However, the captain did set the expectation prior to each time.) I love when airplanes have personal tv monitors but I strongly dislike the fact that there was a charge for headphones, for the ability to listen. I did not buy any / have entertainment during my flight and CC appeared to be available, but did not work. If it did, I would have provided a higher rating."
Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"
Cons: "JetBlue's customer support is far less than other carriers. They do not allow for live agent. If your flight is weather impacted then they say you can "manage" your flight online. Not true. When the flight was delayed past our connecting flight, we were not put on the next flight but one much later even though there were empty seats on the earlier flight. Really disliked the interaction between customer support and gate agents that had completely different stories. AWFUL."
Cons: "very late departure"
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The boarding process was quick and uncomplicated."
Cons: "The seats were quite small with little leg room. Perhaps because it was a smaller plane. There were no entertainment options."

Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but our flight was over 1 hour late. In Hartford the baggage has not started to come out 20 minutes after lanfing."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Safe journey"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "They did have entertainment screens which was a plus. During both flights they did not work properly which was frustrating."
Pros: "Everything was good value flight"

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Tv"
Pros: "Great seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1:30."

Incredibly rude crew, this after cancelling my return flight entirely and leaving me in limbo how I’d get home, even re-scheduling my after-layover flight without notice.

Passengers behaved and wore masks. Pilot communicative. Flight crew nice.

O liked the entertainment. I didn’t like being so close to other passengers, especially when they wore their masks wrong or took them down.

Some delay in departure but a good flight.

Everything went smoothly. Could not eat at Atlanta long lines. A sandwich on the plane would have been nice.

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding"
Pros: "Quick boarding process and take off. Flight was slightly late but the staff expedited boarding and take off. Staff is friendly. Service was great. Beverage service was great. Baggage was quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "Even though its a short flight better food options for First Class would be appreciated."
Pros: "Good seats. Crew was not very hospitable. They went by with water and didn’t give us any. We upgraded for the complementary cocktails and my husband didn’t even get a chance to get one."
Cons: "More attention especially for the upgraded seats that offer complementary things. We got better service in our economy seats on the way to LA. I wouldn’t pay extra to upgrade again."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Clean the cabin more diligently. There was a open unfinished cup of soda and cookie wrappers in my seat back compartment"
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("
Pros: "Everything was perfect!"

Cons: "Trash in seat pocket"
Pros: "The flight was fine"

Pros: "On time, good flight"
Cons: "No power on outlets at waiting room airport, charge 2 dollars for earplugs"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 20 Minutes, after taking off late. Arrived to my connecting gate 10 Minutes prior to scheduled departure with no delta attendants in sight and watched my plane sit at the gate and pull away with no way to get on board. Now I’m waiting unnecessarily for 4 hours on another flight."
Pros: "Marti"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, awesome flight, flight attendants were beyond excellent."
Cons: "Probably the time factor"
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
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"

Pros: "Great overall flight, as expected in Delta’s first class."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. We got a free dinner with wine and free breakfast. Everyone got pillows and blankets."
Pros: "The staff was professional and friendly"
Cons: "Flight left late for multiple reasons, missed my connection. Because there were multiple causes it just reveals how many cracks in the system there are. Flight delays are so common these days that I would just rather drive if possible."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Pros: "Boarding & crew were excellent. Very polite."
Cons: "On flights 0204 & 1687 on 9/21/16---there were no blankets available for comfort. I would expect this since I paid extra for the delta comfort seats. Not very nice☹️ Only Chardonnay & Merlot wines were available. if you're going to carry two full bodied wines then you should carry two light wines as well. For example a Riesling or Pinot noir. I could not drink either of the wines delta carried. Furthermore, I tend to eat low carb & sugar snacks. All the snacks offered were high in carbs except the peanut packs. Delta only had one peanut pack on board. They had many pretzels , bananas & yogurt bars which were high sugar & carbs! Try carrying some Greek plain yogurt & unsweetened vanilla almond milk. TY for your attention."
Pros: "Same as previous flight."
Pros: "the pretzels and drinks. The flight attendant was very polite and attentive."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."

I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"

Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Changed gates at Panama without any alert until boarding time."
Cons: "Food service was good. Staff were nice."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"

Pros: "Gate agents are superb"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "La tripulación tenía tan buen actitud! Todos eran muy amable. The crew had a very friendly attitude. All were very kind!"
Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"

Cons: "No complaints....."

No gate upon arrival had to sit and wait. Seems like it is an everyday occurrence with American.

They need to offer free messaging like many others do..

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Extremely late

Horrible airline: delays and cancellations

Pros: "Non stop flight. Excellent departure time."
Cons: "Understanding the COVID situation but they can give more than a bottle of water (3oz) and a bag of pretzels 🥨 (50 grams) and yet they charge full fare prices and worse extra for any bags!!!!"
Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"
Cons: "Everything was good"
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!!!"

Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Plane clean."
Cons: "Air conditioning way too cold. Turning off outlets did not stop extremely cold air. Delay caused by redistributing passengers to move weight. Seemed unnecessary, but apparently it wasn't. Would rather be safe than sorry. when pilot talked, couldn't understand him at all. Slurred speech."
Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Have the plane ready for take off. We had to taxi back in 2 times b/c of an electrical error. Flight attendants were rude, didn’t smile and annoyed when asked for a beverage. Every single leg of our trip was delayed significantly without any offer of compensation. No help to find a lost item."
Pros: "Crew was on par. Not great, but not bad either. It was a tiny plane so we were all cramped in there."
Pros: "Fast Flights were a major plus!"
Cons: "Crew could’ve been more enthusiastic"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The explanation for why the flight experienced so many delays wasn't given. The flight was clearly overbooked and the organization of the crew while boarding the plane was poor."
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!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "would never have made my connection"
Cons: "late"
Pros: "New plane, great crew on board."
Cons: "seats were hard especially for a 13 1/2 hour flight."
Cons: "I wish there was another option for a snack. There are many companies that would probably love to advertise through distribution to airline passengers."
Cons: "Lost money traveling and moving offered to snake up for it."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "Good friendly service. Flights were on time."
Pros: "Liked everything"

Pros: "Good TV's. Great service. Good food."
Cons: "It was long"
Pros: "Staff was polite and friendly. It was a great experience!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours- weather related, but at other destinations- so this flight had to wait to be rescheduled. Also they weren't able to give any idea when the flight would be boarding- they just kept sending text alerts that it was delayed another half hour and no updates were listed on the screens. When the flight finally left, after I had been waiting for over 5 hours, we were told that they would be flying low, so there would be no beverage service. It would be nice in these situations to simply have bottled water to pass out quickly, or make the announcement prior to boarding so people would be able to bring their own beverages."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats reclined but when they did the bottom of the seat moved forward creating even less leg room. For a guy that is 6' tall it made it nearly impossible to sleep on the over night flight. The head rest also did not raise over my shoulder height which added to the lack of sleep"
Cons: "One miserable pack of coffee cookies for $700+ ticket. I don't expect a 3 course meal on a 3 hour flight but seriously a pack of cookies? Too bad if one follows a gluten free diet."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Pilot did a great job getting here, but gate was blocked by a fuel truck and sat on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes! Pilot has now asked for a tug to pull us in."
Pros: "everything"

Better seating

Execellant boarding and nice crew. Thanks

While everyone boarded appropriately, there did seem to be confusion regarding who was to board when, as per the gate announcements.

Great flight! Easy boarding & quiet flight

Cons: "The experience was poor due to a flight delay that would have resulted in a missed connection. This resulted in a very negative effect because I won't be able to make an important business meeting."
Cons: "The flight departed over 3 hours late. Rather than communicating a realistic departure time, the flight was delayed 6 times in 20-40 minute intervals."
Pros: "Aircraft temperature was nice, which is controlled by the pilots"
Cons: "United boarding system was down United flight attendants on my flight said they would not help us in emergency over an announcement Outdated seat entertainment with directv THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR Seats always feel too small but I’ll just include it here"
Pros: "Denver had about 2” of blowing snow but the flight in was good and the pilot and crew kept us up to date."
Pros: "Brought my own entertainment. Friendly staff. Great boarding process. On time departure"
Pros: "Great experience from A-Z!!"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Flight over 5 hours late."
Cons: "Delayed missed connection, lost luggage!!!!"
Cons: "As stated above, we never made it to Liberia (where we had family waiting for us). We had to fly first to Panama and then to San Jose and figure out a new rental car situation, as we already had one booked in Liberia."
Pros: "That goodness it was a short flight. Seats are small."
Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."
Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."
Cons: "I was supposed to land in denver by 930 and did not end up getting in until 140. We sat on the tarmac at ohare for 20 minutes because they did not plan the gates well then there was a plane blocking our gate customer service lines were absurd. The flight attendant to o hare was very unprofessional"
Cons: "My TSA pre number wasn't included in my ticket and I was delayed for over an hour"
Pros: "Fast boarding, polite crew, generally an easy process."
Cons: "Cramped and old plane, inefficient deboarding, mediocre coffee."
Pros: "Pleasant interactions"
Cons: "Didn't realize I couldn't choose my seats with United's new fare"
Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I was delayed /cancelled 12 times due to air traffic and arrived 27 hours after I was suppose to. Instead of 1 connecting flight they made me take another connecting flight. I was offered no vouchers for anything and all the people at the desks were very rude. To top it all off they lost my luggage and they still haven't found it, it's been over 24 hours"
Pros: "Good experience with United. I don't usually fly with this airline wi I was kinda hesitant, but it was ok."
Cons: "I don't like that there is no free in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "The sweet wafer was a lot of empty calories."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 3.5 hours because of "weather" in Newark...it was raining......"
Cons: "As we were boarding the attendants told my wife and I that there was no space in any overhead compartments and that we had to check our bags to our final destination. When we made it back to our seats there was plenty of space in the overheads that would have accommodated our bags just fine. Very frustrating. Also, the tv screen in my wife's seat did not work and the attendant told us there was nothing that could be done."
Pros: "I completed my check in and printed my boarding passes online. The program was easy to use. The flight was on time and the crew was very courteous.There were no problems with my luggage. The service was excellent."
Cons: "Late departure with no explanation. Had to walk outside in freezing snow and rain. Miserable."
Pros: "Hey, the flights actually were on time. Shocking for United."
Cons: "What does a girl have to do to get in a boarding group that isn't LAST?"
Pros: "Arriving early in LA"
Cons: "No head phones. toilet sink blocked paper bin not emptied check in at Rochester was a horror show. In end supervisor had to help. He said United wasn't connected to Air NZ star alliance. Also wanted to charge $35 for extra bags when we were flying business class from LA to Auckland. We are both currently Gold elite with Air NZ Cant use money to buy glass of wine or buy food. On way from LA to Rochester , 2 stages nite lights didnt work so couldn't read as window passenger pulled the blind down, it was night time."
Pros: ",,,GOOD FLIGTH! THANK YOUUUU ALL*"
Cons: "Got delayed and flights cancelled with very little information or assistance from united to help solve the problem. Finally transferred to American Airlines and had a much better experience"

Cons: "Early morning flight...i could have done with a cup of joe."

Cons: "Second time in a month my united flight to ewr was cancelled. Will never fly with them again"
Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."
Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."
Pros: "The flight attendant was superb. He made me laugh, and helped me relax because the plain stopped and they said we had to wait 20 minutes for take off and I had a connection plane with 45 minutes to get to the other plane:("
Cons: "The seat felt hard, not cushioned enough, especially the back area"
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "No hot food"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The plane the service and overall United as an airline"
Cons: "The plane was delayed quite some time and we sat on the Tarmac for about 40 minutes too long."
Cons: "Service. Flight attendant negative attitude and disrespect for customers."
Pros: "Zero -- I will certainly never fly United again!"
Cons: "Having to wait 30 hours to get home. Having extremely rude or no service. Not receiving compensation for the trouble and inconvenience this airline caused."
Pros: "Excellent and competent crew, smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late, airline did not give us any information until half an hour after we were supposed to have departed"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled twice, pushed back two days. Had to stay in a hotel for two extra nights, caused me to overdraft. No refund"
Pros: "Nothing. One flight attendant gave me a gingere when I was sick from landing and that was helpful."
Cons: "Compeltly ridiculous that you had to pay for every single thing. I think the only complimentary thing was cranberry juice and water. Paying for entertainment and wifi with seperate fees felt really cheap and tacky along with the plane itself. It was run down and looked and felt even more that way when you're competing with flights from companies like JetBlue where they work to make you feel comfortable and provide free entertainment. We also were an hour delayed and sat on the runway for an hour before we left due to too much traffic over Cuba. It felt as a customer that it was poor planning on the companies part and that that could have been avoided earlier. Companies that put effort into a comfortable flying experience and care about customer satisfaction will be getting my money in the future. United would be my last choice when make travel plans in the future."
