Airline reviews

Pros: "Really nice attendant in front of cabin."
Cons: "The small planes don’t have good overhead compartments and i has fragile stuff in my bag I didn’t want to get harmed with other baggage. They found a place for my bag but it wasn’t what I had expected since I’ve flown with Alaska quite a bit and usually it’s not an issue. Hoping to get my premium seating refunded."

Cons: "Usb charger would be great!"

Cons: "Bad coffee"

Pros: "The crew and seats!!"

Pros: "The flight was great - The attendants were friendly with good customer service. However, the evening before my flight I called customer service and spoke with a customer service rep. Having never flown condor before I had questions with check in. The customer service rep online was rude - so rude that I had determined I would never fly condo again. However, the flight and the experience on board was great. The flight changed my mind and made me realize the customer service rep is one person. If you can track the call made I would recommend the that condo speak with this rep. He is a bad representation of condor airlines. I will fly condor again. The flight and attendants on flight were fantastic. To"

I had to wait until the end to request a beverage. Not a big deal, just a minor glitch."

Pros: "Awesome"

I just put on my headphones. I understand this happens and sympathize with the parents.

There were empty seats in front of me but I didn't want to offend anyone by asking to move. :("

Cons: "our Baggage is mishandled and some of the items inside are damaged and lost couple checked in baggage"

Pros: "No one knew I was deaf as crew knew on way to NY. Not sure why this happened."

Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"

Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."

Pros: "They didn’t want to help"

Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more.

Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."

Cons: "Having to go through Kayak wasn’t helpful. I wasn’t kept informed of the flight and getting to my flight schedule was difficult. Going through the website was also frustrating and confirming flights was difficult."

Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."

Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"

Cons: "Worst"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."

Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."

Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"

Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."

Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"

Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"

Cons: "The delay on the runway"

Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."

Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."

Pros: "Smooth as butter. Slept the whole way."
Cons: "Nothing could have improved it."

Pros: "Fell asleep"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was how should be"
Cons: "I like how you are now."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Sit with my actually girlfriend that I bought tickets with"

Cons: "My tv didn’t work my WiFi didn’t work and no beverage service"

Pros: "Premium seating made a huge difference. Even though I am petite, I had a laptop, tablet and work that had to go under the seat in front of me, and I still had plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The seatback offered free streaming of AA entertainment on my tablet, but when I opened the browser and selected entertainment, the only option was to pay $9.95, so I just watched downloaded Netflix episodes. Plus the movies offered on AA streaming didn't look especially good."

Cons: "delayed and lost luggage! thanks"

Cons: "Landing"

Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."

Pros: "Food and service was very good."

Pros: "perfect"

Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"

Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."

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: "Flt on time. Arrived on time"
Cons: "A young child screemed constantly. Not sure how you would address. Have had kids so been there"

Cons: "Too little room for legs and cabin was colder than usual."

Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"

Pros: "Always delayed. Always check my carry on. Which equals me being late to where I'm going."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"

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"

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"

Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"

Pros: "Staff friensly"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes the last when we were already were to start boarding Aircraft seating had some issues."

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."

Pros: "Errthing"

Cons: "My 3rd cancelled American flight this summer. No fun. Takes twice as long to get home when they do that. Time to switch airlines."

Cons: "All our chosen seats were disregarded the entire way from Munich back to Raleigh because the airline was switched to United. My family was separated on all flights, even though we chose seats over a month in advance."

Cons: "A/C was too cold. We paid for Coach Plus but it doesn’t provide benefits equal to other airlines, such as free checked bag and priority boarding."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I can't believe how cramped the seats are. I am under 5 feet tall, and am average weight, and I had no room to spare."

Pros: "Friendly staff, on time, small snack was good"
Cons: "Very little space in seat"

Pros: "On time departures and early arrivals"

Pros: "Great"

Cons: "We were delayed"

Pros: "Connecting could hardly be any easier than at DEN--you get off your plane and you turn right or you turn left. No need to find a map of the airport; no need to figure out whether walking or taking the "trA'Am" would be faster; no need to catch a bus or go through security; just one (long) concourse."
Cons: "While connecting at DEN is easy, I wish there were more outlets for recharging my phone on the B concourse (like WN has on the C concourse). I wouldn't have gotten too much of a boost, though, as both of my flights were on time."

Cons: "I didn't like hearing the overhead storage will soon cost."

Pros: "Everyone was very nice"
Cons: "I was up all nite. Could have used a cup of joe."

Pros: "Delayed bc of weather."

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 personal tv"
Cons: "Having to pay an extra fee just to watch whatever I wanted"

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: "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: "Good and frequent updates on delays and changes."
Cons: "No reasons for delays."

Pros: "Routine"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "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."

Cons: "we were an hour late"

Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."

Pros: "Easy process, no issues. Pilot handled turbulence well, landed pretty smoothly. It was a good trip."
Cons: "No complaint except the trash other passengers left on the plan."

Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
