Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "When my flight with American Airlines cancelled, I felt so panicked because I needed to be in Florida on Saturday night. But thankfully, lady who works for American Airlines solved my problem on the phone in couple of minutes easily. After that, when we were boarding to the aircraft, there was a cabin attendant lady. She came to us and ask me and my mother if we can talk English.I answered her with yes we can, but she demands to talk with my mother. And English is not her native language, but it doesn't prove that she doesn't know it. She tried to ask questions to her like, "where were you today?" so we couldn't really understand the reason for her to ask those questions in the first place. So we couldn't really say anything. While we were talking about my mother's English, the all aircraft was watching us, and trying to figure out what was going on. After all, she made us to sit there and wait her to replace us with other passengers. We waited the whole aircraft to be seated, then she took us to another seat with my mother. I can understand that it is her job but I'm not sure, if it had to be that much discomfort. We got pretty upset about it and it affects our flight quality. Plus, while cabin crew serving beverages, they didn't really ask us anything. We needed to call them for our order. To be honest, I would never flight with Delta. It was a disappointment."
Cons: "Even in first class the my treat you like cattle, asked for water 3 times and it came 30 minutes later with an attitude, like she was doing me a favor. The seats are a joke for first class, literally the cheapest trim configuration an airline could purchase."
Pros: "The touch screens had lots of movie options, which was nice."
Cons: "The crew wasn’t friendly and the seats are crazy narrow"
Pros: "The crew onboard was fantastic. The food was pretty good as well"
Cons: "Seat are extremely uncomfortable they are too small"
Pros: "I loved the seating"
Cons: "Honestly on a 5 hour flight ✈️ power outlets would be helpful also maybe a tv so I can see where I am at"
Cons: "It would’ve been nice if we made it to fort Meyers!"
Cons: "Entertainment is bad, there is not enough headset to the passengers, half way through the plane, the hostess is already out of earphone. I have to watch silent movies just like the old days. How can that happen"
Cons: "There was a noise as if the seatbelt signs were turning off and on. As you can imagine that became extremely annoying."
Pros: "Great service and on time flight. Got a good comfortable seat with nice leg room."
Pros: "Comfort on board, entertainment system"

Cons: "Getting to San Francisco flight was canceled, make a line for 3.30 hours to let us know what they were going to do with us, they give the place to go at 3 a.m with not directions were to take a bus , later someone come and told us the bus stop running at that time and I have to go upstairs to take a taxi, I was alone and not use to be alone at that time never in my live I had to pretend I was afraid. Of course the hotel only take you until 12pm so I spend so many hours in the airport waiting for re ticketing they told us to be at 6pm we wait and I got my ticket leaving at 9.45pm but the crew come one hour and half late. From Panama to Lima flight was late . I had a conference very important to be Saturday morning, I lost my investment and relationships with the company I was going to start a business there excuse was they couldn’t relay on my punctuality, honestly. I got there more than a day and half LATE. If you ask me how was my trip I will tell you horrible and I can’t recommend anybody, this company doesn’t have any personality at all"
Cons: "My 10:00 p.m. flight was canceled so I had to spend the night trying to sleep in the airport. Have you ever had to do that? Not fun."
Cons: "Miserable seats. Inadequate overhead storage - I was forced to put my only carry on, a day pack, under my seat making the small seat and foot room even more uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "No wifi, no recline on seat, entertainment system didn’t work"
Pros: "Very smooth fligh and very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "The seats were extremely crammed and there were no movies or shows without purchase"
Cons: "12+ hour flight with no working outlet to charge phone or headphones. When I asked to move to a seat that had a charger, they basically said no - even though there were about 20 open seats in the next "economy class" level. So for 6 hours, after my phone died, I basically stared at the wall and then had no phone to assist with my directions or hotel reservations once we landed. Food was not good. Plane was old, and had a few random screens playing a movie that kept freezing and had to be restarted."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Rescheduled on next morning on economy class even though the original tickets booked for business class. No hotel, food voucher, etc. were provided blamed on the weather condition even though the bad weather was 1-2 days ago, and on the day of departure it was air traffic control problems which was stated in cancellation email."
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized.  Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines.  Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."
Pros: "I loved the fact I didn't get beat up and dragged off the flight"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't see anyone get beat up and dragged off the flight"
Pros: "Nothing, 2 hrs delay waiting for a crew member and plane was ~25% full, no snacks or beverages"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost two hours so I missed the flight from Denver to Charlotte. Because of the way this flight was sold to us and booked through Kiwi.com, there was nothing that could be done to get me on another flight. The only option was to wait for a Frontier flight which wasn't available until Monday morning. I had to book another flight on a different airline at a cost of $600."
Cons: "Negative leg room, Hugh bag fees that were not stated in the original purchase"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Extremely high charge for carry-on baggage, extremely high charge for changing flight times, no beverage service, seats are very small with no iPhone charger available."
Pros: "Nothing really after paying $45 and l have to pay another $45 to go back to Cincinnati"
Cons: "Too much luggage fee $45 is too much"
Pros: "They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else. They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else."
Cons: "They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else. Not worth it at all!!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hrs while other flights to Denver kept taking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we got a notification from google, but when we called Frontier, they said it was on time. And when we reached the airport they said, its been delayed. It caused a lot of inconvenience. Very unprofessional."
Cons: "Red eye flight so food and entertainment were limited. Comfort was an issue if you were trying to sleep as I was in a middle seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours with never an alert to any passengers. The crew didn't even show up until the flight was already supposed to be boarding. I did not receive any message or alert that the flight was continuing to be delayed. I've never experienced anything like this before. And nothing was done to better the situation."
