Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "We got to our destination aver 12 hours late."
Cons: "In addition to being rebooked approximately 12 hours after our original flight, this flight left about 40 minutes late."
Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Poor flight. Staff kept the plane ridiculously warm the entire flight."
Pros: "Arrived slightly early. The crew was efficient and friendly. The interior and seats looked new."
Cons: "Nothing was negative."
Pros: "Made it safely."
Cons: "Getting my phone blown up all day about delays on my two flights. Then sitting on the tarmac in the plane while the ground crew moved equipment around. Were they surprised a plane was coming in?"
Pros: "Delayed on the runway but overall good and smooth"
Cons: "Flight service was ok"
Cons: "Coach seating is too tight"
Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"
Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"
Pros: "Everything else was great - including rest of crew"
Cons: "plane departure was delayed after boarding because the pilot hadn't arrived from local residence or hotel to SFO in time - as a result we sat on tarmac for half hour or more before departure AND because we arrived late we sat on tarmac for awhile waiting for an arrival gate to open at DCA"
Cons: "Boarding chaos at Miami airport."
Pros: "The aircraft was newer and the flight smooth. The pilot kept us updated on potential turbulence, which was comforting No one knew if Charlotte was going to get a gust from IRMA. The flight attendants were also friendly which isn't the case on some airlines."
Cons: "First Class Flight Attendant spent more time on her phone in the jump seat than asking if we needed anything. Came by twice for a 3 hour flight. I had to go up front to ask for a beverage, and she seemed totally put out"
Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"
Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"
Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."
Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"
Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"
Cons: "The fact we were staring at the plane for 3 hours waiting to take off and customer service and the gate staff was no help"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."
Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"
Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."
Cons: "2 days late"
Cons: "Didn't even get on the flight due to delay out of KSMF and I talked to the ticket lady and this has been happening very regularly due to runway construction in Phoenix. Yet the airline won't let you know or change the schedules they just take your money knowing they will likely not be able to deliver the desired product."
Pros: "The flight to my destination was awesome. Helpful staff, great equipment, and plenty of room. I loved the technology in the seats."
Cons: "The return flight was not so good. I felt like an inconvenience and was not treated very well. At one point I was dismissed by an airline associate with a swish of her hand. Not exactly how anyone should be treated. There was a nice man that was a flight attendant, but other than that it was as if they were irritated people were even on the flight."
Cons: "They were out of snacks. A little thing but got under my skin as unprofessional."
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"
Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."
Pros: "Non-stop and comfort"
Cons: "No snacks at all :("
Pros: "The tv in the seat back"
Cons: "The lack of knowledge and carding of the desk staff i was so looking forward to this vacation and it ended in nightmare 2 missed connections, 3+ hours added driving for my ride home and getting home at 3:30am or later whwn I would have been home at 11:00 luggage sent on with out me on the flight all in all very disappointing"
Cons: "4 hr. Layover"
Cons: "A few crew members was rude"
Pros: "Entertainment was free."
Cons: "Had to wait for mechanical issues so we were delayed."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Flight was on time. Some weather en route but pilot was able to avoid the turbulence. Overall a good flight."
Cons: "Unrelated to the flight- but immigration and customs in Grand Cayman was slow. 200+ people arrived on this plane and there ware 4 immigration agents although they had more stations. We spent about a half hour in line in each- immigration and then customs. Rental cars is another situation to be aware of regarding insurance."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"
Cons: "Taking a flight on American Airlines when I booked one on Alaska was confusing. Not clear disclosed at the time of purchase. And hard to notice on conformation email."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to first class"
Cons: "Horrible disorganization at boarding. Board from back to front for goodness sake...its common sense."
Pros: "While waiting to board an American pilot sat next to me and was very pleasant. I appreciated his conversation."
Cons: "Delayed getting out of Sacramento. The connection anxiety was intense. we landed as my connection was boarding. De-planing was chaotic and un informed. Seemed like we stood a good 10 mins before the doors opened...some info would have helped. Sometimes they give the gate numbers and everybody on that plane needed to go somewhere. the attendants were not helpful, the one announcer had an accent, a little hard to understand and asked that we all be kind...ok that I can do."
Cons: "Rude flight attendance werent prompt"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind"
Cons: "Comfort level was very low. I'm 6'0 y'all and with my seat in an upright posistion my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. My chair barely reclined which cause me to not get any sleep. These two comfort factors made it a restless uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Despite having a purchased ticket and a seat, I showed up to the airport because I was having problems checking in online. When I arrived at the kiosk it did not print a boarding pass, instead a slip stating I had missed my check-in timeframe and head to the front. I went to the front assuming the counter clerk would resolve the issue but she advised that the only thing she could do is book me on the next flight since the flight was over booked. I was really upset about the situation since I had to be at an event at a specific time. Just make sure you check in as soon as you can. If you are having issues on your phone, call the airline or head to the airport about an hour and a half to two hours early to get your boarding pass."
Cons: "The fact that you have to download an app to get any kind of entertainment on United is a bit ridiculous. Plus the food offerings are poor at best."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There was absolutlely no food. Not eve a bag of peanuts."
Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"
Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"
Pros: "On time. Made connecting international flight ok."
Pros: "Everything was fine, there was nothing exceptional about the flight."
Cons: "Just that it was rather cramped but that's pretty much flying on any airline these days, so I can't say that they're at fault."
Cons: "No drinks on the flight, even in first class. They should tell customers before they purchase the update!"
Pros: "Great service!!"
Cons: "The connection flight from Chicago to Munich was delayed by 3 hours & the flight from munich to Ancona was delayed by 6 hours."
Pros: "The flight & crew were great"
Cons: "A cookie? C'mon man. I couldn't download the United app & didn't know I had to."
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Pros: "Ran on time."
Cons: "Sitting next to a larger gentleman which boxed out my own personal space. Having to stow my suitbag in an overhead bin several rows behind me."
Cons: "The man who reprinted my boarding pass after I had left no e at security was extremely rude. I also found it ridiculous that I was charged to check my bag at the gate because it was about a half inch longer than the bin. Yes I understand there are size limits on carry on luggage but the plane was not even half full and the bag was clearly a standard carry on size. If anything, I should have been permitted to gate check the bag."
Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and seemed to have a bit more room. The staff was professional and courteous."
Cons: "The plane was 2hrs delayed but that was due to weather. The food was over priced and not good."
Cons: "The fact I had to buy a tv package when on my previous"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The drink and snack cart taking forever and causing a line ahead or behind it for the restroom."
Cons: "Scheduled for 7:20pm, but delayed until 8:20pm. Very disorganized way of handling carry on baggage. Not worth the $208 I paid for this one way flight."
Cons: "Delayed, uncomfortable seats, bad landing"
Cons: "They did no seat anyone in the safety exit row because they were charging $69 to do so. This is a great hazard in case of an emergency there would be no one to open the aircraft exit door and allow people to exit. Rather, it would cause a stir and a bottleneck of people rushing in an attempt to open a door that is far away. Very disappointed."
Pros: "On time, great service"
Cons: "Plane was full. Legroom poor, as I am 6'2". But I was give an isle seat as requested , so able to stretch a little."
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Won't let you check in in advance so they can give you a terrible seat for a 12 hour flight. They won't even let you check in from the point of departure if it's with one of their partners. They also will do everything in their power to not give award miles to pattern airline clubs. It doesn't matter if you give them your United number and even register your United number with the flight for United. They will apply it to the Lufthansa Club and pretend it was just in the state and never actually give you the miles no matter how many times you try. This is not from one experience with Lufthansa / Austrian. I've had this experience many times with every flight I take with these terrible Airlines. I would never fly lifthansa unless it's at least $200 cheaper than any of their competitors."
Pros: "Original flight delayed. They bumped me to the earlier flight which was available cuz it was delayed also. That allowed me to make my connection but I got there about the same time as the later flight should have. The hour-long wait on the tarmac made the flight memorable."
Pros: "Airline staff was very friendly."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was almost unbearably hot throughout the entire flight. And to give some perspective: I'm someone who is usually always cold on airplanes and typically not a fan of a/c. And I wore shorts & a t-shirt on the plane which I was nervous about doing because like I said, I'm always cold, but thank goodness I did for that flight."
Pros: "I was glad to see that the security check line was moving quickly. Sacramento is usually my go to airport when in northern California because it's so much easier to get to where you need to in a timely fashion too."
Pros: "First class was nice but I paid for 1st class for the whole flight and only got it on the first leg. They should have told me that when they took my money."
Cons: "2nd leg was terrible it was over an hour and a half late because they had to replace a toilet seat! I paid for an upgrade for first class and they over booked it so I didn't get it and haven't received my money back. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Landing delay due to another United planes mechanical issues, terrible follow up customer service. Worst airline out there."
Pros: "The price was awesome. The crew was attentive. Five hour or more flights deserves more than a bag of pretzels with only 5 pretzels in the bag. The flight also needs more technology, wifi, movies and televisions."
Cons: "The lack or technology and the limited snacks."
Pros: "that they warned me the plane was extra small and checked my carry-on at the gate for free."
Cons: "that they didn't really advertise how small of a plane I would be flying. I guess you're supposed to research every plane before purchasing tickets now."
Pros: "Easy going"
Cons: "Paying for food and entertainment, should be included in the ticket."
Pros: "Flight quick, everything went smooth. Staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "No negative comments."
Pros: "The crew was nice, boarding was easy and I had a decent seating on the plane. It was on time"
Cons: "I did not like being squeezed like a sardine into a narrow, uncomfortable seat. Quit adding rows and making leg room smaller and elbow room smaller so the airline can make another dollar."
Pros: "The flight was delayed then delayed then delayed. A 2:30pm flight that flies 25 minutes to SFO to hit a connector leaves 10 hours late. Awful."
Cons: "Zero leg room. I am 5' 9'' and my knees touched the seat in front of me. The bathroom lines extended half way down the plane for the majority of the flight."
Pros: "Right away when United found out we would not make our connecting flight in Denver they called AA and booked us with them."
Cons: "That due to the delay and new airline we arrived in Springfield an hour later then planned."
Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats in a completely full flight. My seat didn't really lean back. The man next to me kept spilling over into my space. Terrible flight, especially for a red-eye."
Cons: "The emergency landing. The horrible customer service."
Pros: "On time and good a short flight"
Pros: "They put me on a taxi to SF"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than 2 hours"
Cons: "The 3 hour delay"
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Coming home"
Pros: "United Airlines had a delayed flight I was there I checked in..... I looked at the reader board which told me 6:05p depart..... I went to the restroom came back the flight team had already arrived pulled out and left .....those bastards left"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times resulting in connecting flight being missed."
Pros: "They moved my connecting flight as my first flight was delayed and there wouldn't be enough time to make the connection. They initiated it so I didn't even have to ask the question and they put me on a better flight."
Cons: "I was hoping that they had wifi for video streaming but they didn't so there was no entertainment, however it was only an hour flight so I didn't mind much"
Pros: "The stewardesses were polite and helpful."
Cons: "United does not take care of military. They have terrible customer service and charged me for my bags when Delta waives my baggage fees. The baggage people were so rude and didn't want to help anyone in line."
Pros: "My first flight was cancelled....had a 3 hour wait for next flight on a diffrent airline..Got booked on a over booked flight at my connection in LA were there was another 2 hour layover, but a young lady at the United podeum in Sacramento got me on a flight from LA to SD, for whatever reason no one else could. Thank you who ever you were"
Cons: "Thank you United lady whoever you were."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. I really like the new seats United has in their new planes too. They seem really thin and light, but surprisingly more comfy."
Cons: "I didn't like that fact that with United Airlines there is a $25 fee to check in your bag or how inconsistent the company is from airport to airport. The boarding process is slow and unorganized. You guys don't offer a comimentary snack like other airlines and your crew members aren't that friendly. Extremely dissatisfied."
Pros: "The flight was less than an hour so there's not much rank, it was delayed at first but only 15 minutes, the stuard was was kinda just there bc she worked that day and we had to wait to take off for a while but otherwise it was pretty basic."
Pros: "The second leg was a bit more comfortable. We arrived to our destination on time and safely. Thank you to the pilots."
Cons: "Sac to Houston, felt like we were jammed in like sardines, narrow seats, very little wiggle room between rows. As if a five-seat row had been altered to squeeze in a sixth seat, to be able to squeeze more people onto an already full plane. There is no entertainment unless one has an app of some sort on an electronic device of some sort. Nothing is about the paying customer anymore. It's all about how much money can be made....sad Second leg, a flight attendant was rude to my husband, and the boarding was confusing, as zones 1-3 were all called at once, and the attendant quit using the mic, so no one could hear her. Oh, well, hope the flight home is better. Sac to Houston, felt like we were jammed in like sardines, narrow seats, very little wiggle room between rows.
