Pros: "Such a delightful flight."
Cons: "Departure late by 25 minutes!!"

Pros: "Boarding was simple and fast!"
Cons: "Online checking did not give me the option to change my seat. This could have been better."

Pros: "Crew was late, which caused me missed my connection flight, and layover for 10 hours at Heathrow Then on my delayed flight, I was seated on a worth sit. Thank you British Airway. Hope this my last flight with you. Kobi"
Cons: "Get your crew arrive on time to their flights. Kobi"

Pros: "Glad to have flat beds and not the fake B class you sometimes get in Europe"
Cons: "Not crazy about this seat arrangement in which every other passenger faces backwards."

Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "The timing of the food service vs hours of flight"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Ac"

Pros: "Food ok and crew nice."
Cons: "The flight was bumpy for 5 hours from USA to England scary ride"

Cons: "Missing information of my flights, such as seat and others"

Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"

Cons: "The seats rows are too close - high density. The flight was late."

Pros: "Nothing the worst customer service I ever had"
Cons: "The flight was canceled due to mechanical difficulties and British airways delayed helping us for 2 hours and then told us to use the phone 800 number to book a different flight. we needed to connect in London for the flight to Tel Aviv. The man on the phone barely spoke English and set us up with a flight that would not get us to our destination in time for our religious Sabbath Friday night. When we tried to explain the situation he hung up on us. We called back and tried to explain again we either spoke to the same man or another Indian man whom also spoke unintelligible English and he also hung up on us. In the mean time my wife spoke with the counter agents and they tried to find us another flight but by now other airline counters were closed. An hour later I tried the 800 number again and spoke again with the same Indian guy, when I asked to speak to a manager he gave me a hard time then finally said ok, put me on hold which I stayed for a while and realized he just put me on hold indefinitely. Finally after being in the airport for 9 hours we found a flight from United and a family member booked it online for us which we took to Tel Aviv and got us here only 2 hours later than our original flight which had a 12 hour layover in London and we were going to spend time touring but did not get to. As far as I am concerned British Airways has done a horrible job and no one should ever fly with them again. Unfortunately our flight home is with them I hope it goes smooth."

Pros: "The crew is friendly. Relative to some other flights I've had, the Economy section is not terrible."
Cons: "If you are fairly tall, don't expect to be able to catch some sleep. The earphone socket is located right next to your leg, so expect to break your cable."

Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "One of the worst business class seats - worn and cramped. Boarding was pandemonium Crew was unfriendly"

Cons: "British airways new I'l be late , they could send someone to pick me up from the security point, so I could have been on time."

Cons: "Screens were difficult to maneuver. In some instances wouldn't open."

Cons: "not much room. cant explain the boarding. too complicated and required going down stairs."

Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Boring entertainment selections"

Cons: "5 hours delay, and at 2 of them we were on board. Terrible food. We asked to walk outside, by foot, in the snow to the aircraft. Terrible flight."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment are excellent"
Cons: "Food is mediocre. Temperature on the flights to and from Tel Aviv is very cold (needed blanket and shawl both directions)."

Cons: "Business class configuration on BA 777"

Pros: "Ground staff and crew excellent Boarding was confusing and not announced"
Cons: "The breakfast was kind of gnarly - the eggs were oversalted and slimy, like worse than the usual airplane meal"

Pros: "Great crew, quiet flight, good food,"

Pros: "the staff"
Cons: "aircraft, food, entertainment"

Cons: "12 hour delay. Very disappointed with British airways"

Cons: "Freezing cold cabin"

Pros: "The flight attendants were all very nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "I'm told (late) that BA does not subscribe to TSA prep in the USA. That meant going to the TSA line first, being rejected, going back to check-in to know the reason, then back to the standard long line. Once onboard my seat's entertainment system dies not work. 3 reset attempted with no luck. A month ago, on another long haul flight the same happened. Food was very bad. Salmon so overdone that it was hard to cut, overcooked vegetables and some lukewarm mash potatoes."

Cons: "It gave me a different return date"

Pros: "The crew are always nice, trying to compensate for the lack of service provided by the company. sadly, its not enough anymore."
Cons: "Everything.. Check in was a nightmare, only one representative for over 50 people. and much more horrible behavior from once a great company, today nothing more than an over paid low cost one."

Pros: "crew attentive to passengers and always with a happy demeanour."

Pros: "Efficient and convenient."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plans...my tray table has crusted food stains and the magazines in the seat pocket had gum all over them."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Cons: "The food."

Pros: "Direct filght"
Cons: "Limited entertainment options"

Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Disappointed with the food choice"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "It is a very short connection time and it is the second time I've missed it. Now according to the schedule I should be arriving Tel Aviv at 11:30 pm instead of 3 pm. And the wait in London is very long."

Pros: "For the back of the bus, the seat was still pretty comfortable and I did manage to sleep. Boarding was easy, The entertainment seemed great, thought I fell asleep"
Cons: "I didnt' manage to get a good seat. I sat in the middle row, last row of the plane. : ) Also, i must have fallen asleep, but I was never offered even a cup of water."

Pros: "the flight was very comfortable and we had a very pleasant flight. The food was very tasty, and all in all the flight was very high standard."
Cons: "there was some air hosts strike so service was slower than expected, but all in all the crew was able to attend everybody's needs. landing was a bit rougher than usual."

Cons: "Their own employees didn't know that the flight was delayed, though their app had sent out a notice, and they refused to let me go through security, having already given away my seat more than an hour before the flight actually left. Then they refused to admit responsibility and do anything to help except to continue to put us on standby on their own full flights, knowing we wouldn't be able to get on one of those flights for at least a few days. They did finally give us a hotel for just one night and that was only after we kept reminding them that this was all their fault."

Pros: "I was late to the flight due to an accident and I have got a new flight quite easily"
Cons: "I have got a seat that can take t back, no one told me in advanced this is the situation and the flight attendent keeped telling me why it can't be done instead of looking for a solutioni"

Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailing patient and polite and as helpful as they could be. Given the situation with the IT problem at BA, it was amazing that we were scheduled, and took off on time and arrived in Tel Aviv on time. Congratulations to all!"
Cons: "We were at the back of the plane, which was pretty difficult for my 6'6" husband and his long legs. We were told every seat was full (because of the IT problem). However, after takeoff it became apparent that there were some empty seats, but they weren't offered to us. One man was asleep across three exit row seats, for example. We had two seats in a three seat row, which would have given us a bit more room, but a woman was moved to the window seat with us, to accommodate a religious man who didn't want to sit next to her. She was very nice, but the whole situation was annoying and distasteful. And, unfortunately, the food was just as bad as our last flight."

Pros: "Great food, great entertainment, short flight that went smoothly"
Cons: "Cabin temperature a bit high"

Pros: "Routing"
Cons: "English airline food. Flight attendant's after shave too strong, started me sneezing every time he walked by."

Cons: "Food Accommodating bags when space is available"

Pros: "the crew was grate, brakfest was good ."

Cons: "baggage was lost"

Cons: "I WANT TO CAHNGE TIME OF FLIGHT. BRITISH ASKED TO HIGT PAYMENT. IN THIS AMOUNT I CAN BUY TWO TIKETS IN LOW COAST COMPANY AND I HAVE ENOUTH MONEY TO BUY FOOD. PERSON THAT BUY TIKET FROM THE SITE CAN'T CHOISE A SITE AND ITS COME AUTOMATIC WITHOUT TO CAHNGE/"

Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"

Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."

Pros: "exelant crew ans service"
Cons: "overprice for extra bag"

"Flight got delayed made me miss my layover paid to not have a super long layover ended up having to sit for 6 hours waiting on a flight"

Pros: "Was upgraded to first class on my return flights. Service was excellent seats were comfy. Benefit of being a card holder and flying only American Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The lines were too long for a 75 year old. I have recheck but did not get it with American. Security was madness, no one keeping social distance in spite of all your lovely signs. The staff giving directions on the moving table was unintelligible to me and so i left my iPad in my bag and had to spend 20 minutes tearing my bag apart . The gate was the only one not listened on the departure board and so i went the wrong way into the wrong Gs. There was no one around to check with, no one to ask and when i realized i went the wrong way i had to run back . At 75. I was the last one on board. No one helped me. The only friendly and helpful staff i met was Peter on the Chicago to LaCrosse flight. Very disappointed."

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

Cons: "After the flight was diverted due to Weather conditions I missed my connecting flight and American Airlines did a terrible job handling the changes and assisting their customers at DFW airport."

Pros: "Everything was easy"

Pros: "It was fine the next leg of the trip was cancelled"

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seating too crowded"
Cons: "Consider removing seats to add more space per seat"

Pros: "That I was FINALLY able to get to my destination after a THREE AND HALF HOUR DELAY. Mechanical malfunctions, Get crew unable to find the pilots once the mechanical malfunction was corrected, sitting on the plane for an hour waiting for some "guy" to be located who went missing who was responsible for our weight to certified for flight. I didn't like anything."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "flight was on time!"

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: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."

Pros: "Another customer allowed me to sit in the aisle seat rather than the assigned middle seat. That was much appreciated. And I enjoyed an movie during the flight. I like being able to choose what I want to watch and stream it on my own device."
Cons: "It was really cold on the airplane. I kept my jacket on for the entire flight. I’m typically warm natured, so it was unusually cold."

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."

Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Poor flight. Staff kept the plane ridiculously warm the entire flight."

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"

Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."

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"

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: "Nothing"

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..."

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
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"

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."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
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"

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"

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: "On time and comfortable flight."

Cons: "The service in Newark airport"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight"

Pros: "Crew were really friendly and very courteous."

Pros: "A long but uneventful flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. The flight was fine."

Cons: "The connection time at the Dulles airport was ridiculous. To get from gate C to A in 20 minutes was difficult and I almost missed my flight"

Pros: "I liked it because the flight was not overbooked and I had plenty of space."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had pain and I didn’t know if the crew had any pain medication."

Cons: "I couldn’t check in for my flights ahead of time because the check in system from United and Copa airlines didn’t accept my reservation details. My first flight from Sacramento to San Francisco with United was cancelled and I was not informed until I arrived at the gate for check in. United wanted to rebook me on a flight to Los Angeles and Newark which would have been a delay of 10 hours. After security I had to go to the gate of a delayed flight to San Francisco and ask that they put me back on my original itinerary"

Cons: "Food was mediocre and in very small amounts, even the I have been seated in premium economy, there still was little space in the armrests and hardly any recline"

Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Plan on wearing your running shoes. United is bad at giving you a lay over that is almost impossible to make. 45 minutes or less for a layover is going to give u a pretty good chance to miss your flights. We went to LAX and had to run from terminal 8 to 7. If it were long we would have missed it.."

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."

Cons: "There was an odor of raw sewage the entire flight. Myself and my son were feeling ill by the time the flight was over."

Pros: "Food was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seats are just too close for a 10 hour flight."

Cons: "I was seated next to an obese man who was racist and homophobic, and when I asked the flight attendant if I could move to the empty seat next to me because he was taking up a chunk of my seat, I was told “no” because I am not a united mileage plus member. not so nice! If i pay for an aisle seat I expect to be able to “sit” in the whole seat (and not to mention free from hatred)"

Pros: "Was flying biz class and the audio wasn’t working. The flight attendant tried her best but only was able to reboot over and over again. But she didn’t offer a voucher or anything for the lack of a sound system."

Pros: "kosher meals were on plane. extra legroom was comfortable. Good choice of movies"
Cons: "We started to board on time and after group 1 boarded, they said they pulled the crew for a different flight and we needed to wait til 1:30 AM ( 2.5 hours delay) to board. Then 30 minutes later they called us back after finding another crew. It was very chaotic and made not sense"

Pros: "On time. Made connecting international flight ok."

Pros: "upgrade"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None for this flight."

Cons: "No one told us at the gate I was told to go to included on my ticket that it had been changed. I almost missed my flight if I had not asked an assistant at another gate. Then when I got to the correct gate I asked that assistant why there was no announcement of the change. He proceeded to tell me I didn't need to yell at him. That was unprofessional, disrepectful, and bottom line rudeness."

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: "Late departing, crew not friendly, having take tiny plane to my destination...man next to me smalled sooo bad I had to turn my face into window to not get sick.not airline fault of course. Landed in Denver at one gate toward end of concourse and second plane s gate not listed anywhere. No board or person knew where. Found it was to be entire other end..pilot mumbled when talking not able understand his fast mumble."

Pros: "Flight entertainment Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The crew was not very nice. The electric plug didn't work"

Pros: "I liked nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I was not able to board the fist flight because i got there one hour before the flight left. I drove 2 hours to catch my second plane and because i did that my entire ticket was cancel forcing me to pay $341.00 to purchase another ticket"

Pros: "Not much. We were late so United gave us free TV access during the flight."
Cons: "The flight was late and let space was very little. We only had one drink and one cookie for a 5+ hour flight."

Pros: "Everyone was pleasant, flights were on time, no baggage lost, very little turbulence."

Cons: "United organized boarding by zones (1, 2, 3, 4) where 1 is in the front of the aircraft (business) and 4 is at the back. While I appreciate that business travelers should have priority boarding, the order of coach is from front to back. It would be beneficial to begin coach boarding from the back to the front to reduce the traffic on the aisles."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 minutes past when they began to board no effort to try to help with getting on or another flight. Had plenty of time to get through security no call no assistance to find another flight NOTHING! No care to help."

Cons: "Very negative about this company they did two times cancelation, at first was problem with lights in plane and we stay over an hour, then they say that the airplain has mechanical problems and we waited about one more hour, then they returned us to airport and we waited one more hour, finally after 3 hours they start to board us but service was horrible so rod boarding people. So I hade meeting with singing contract in the morning, I was late contract cancelled and I lose my money..... The company did not any compensation. I'm so Negative, negative, about this company, not recommended will never have again"

Pros: "Getting to my destination. Other than that.. it feels like I'm just a sack of meat being herded and potentially lead to slaughter. Nothing elegany, exciting or glamorous about flying these days. Just trying to not get sick, die or break the bank to get to my deatination and do so with dignity. Flying United I felt like I had little to no dignity by the time I arrived at my destination. But, I have to admit, you get what you pay for...."
Cons: "Every single aspect. From checking in to boarding, to in flight to disembarking.. it's not all United's fault. The entire industry really.."

Pros: "The entire service from boarding to flying was efficient and punctual."
Cons: "The snacks and no beverage, however I understand the flight was super short."

Cons: "My flight was originally at 10:25am and got moved due to fog to 11:00am which is understandable. But the plane gets in and the captain comes off and says he's clocked off. And that the next captain wouldn't be getting in till 2:40. I would think they would've had enough time to line up another captain knowing the fog was causing delays. It made me miss my flight to Houston. I just really think this all could've been avoided"

Pros: "They put me and my son in the very last row of the airplane. I realize this is probably the only way I could afford to fly so I will put up with it, but it isn't very comfortable for 73 year old woman."

Pros: "I was nursing a cold and the staff was offering me drinks and blanket."
Cons: "Departure was delayed by an hour."

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."

Pros: "The crew was very nice as we got on."
Cons: "As usually United over booked and even though I brought my ticket in advance I some how did not have a seat assigned to me when I checked in. Most of the plane had boarded before I had a ticket in my hand. The agent was rude as she could be because I didn't understand how that's possible for me not to have a seat. I think that it's absolutely ridiculous that it's even possible to over sale a plane since there's obviously only a certain number of seats. I think it's ridiculous that people have to offer up their seat and take another flight, I chose a flight time because that's when I wanted to leave and get to where I was going for a reason. No other industry is allowed to treat their customers this way so why does the airline industry do it? Also there's no tv or movies for us to watch while in a 4 hour flight."

Pros: "The size of a first class seat"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not function properly. Seat cushions were worn out. The customer service representative was not able to complete my check in for the international segment."

Cons: "Three rolling delays in departure, and we landed the ground crew couldn't find stairs for us to deplane. Waited 30-minutes til we finally used the plane's stairs. Sigh- just makes one wonder about their commitment to getting flight ops right..."

Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "2 hour delay and missing my connection"

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."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The drink and snack cart taking forever and causing a line ahead or behind it for the restroom."

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: "Routine"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "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: "Nothing at all Delta is very reliable the people that work for Delta are very nice the people that work for United have a lot to learn they need training learn how to talk to passengers I was called a third-grader just because I didn't know where my seat was very irritating"
Cons: "Nothing whatsoever I would never fly United ever again not when there's Delta Delta is very friendly United is not friendly at all the people are very rude it seems like they don't want to mess with nobody this is a very big mess"
