Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"

I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"

Cons: "Missed connection"

Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "We all were bused to the plane. And we all had to stow our carry on bags with checked luggage."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. We even arrived a little early in Rochester."

Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"

Thank you again Jamie and Dana :)))"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "early take off and early landing"
Cons: "crying baby... passengers hanging out in the aisle... also lady sat in my emergency row seat and would not leave so I let her have it. also the lady next to that seat complained the whole time we tried to negotiate that seat. also the flight attendant that gave our section drinks seemed irritated and very rude. Older african american woman that stuck her finger in my face and the person next to me to ask her to stop her question as he picked up snacks that she dropped in the aisle. Kind of rude and kind of uncalled for. And the lady next to me (lauren) is an ER dr that had a layover in Atlanta for 4 hours to vacation with her fiance in the Caribbean..."

Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you."
Cons: "On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra."

Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."

Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."

Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."

Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"

Pros: "Kind bar"
Cons: "Booked my flight and paid to pick my seats. Did not end up getting the seats I booked. Boarding and departing was extremely slow."

Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"

Pros: "Movie helped to pass the time this was the longest flight ever I was glad when it was over"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about"

Cons: "I had to buy a ticket on Southwest to get where I needed to go. So a wasted trip, wasted time and Southwest came through immediately after I had told them the situation. I'll be using them much more now."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm throughout the three hour flight."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"

Cons: "Due to weather patterns, we sat on the runway for 3 hours waiting to take off. There was approx. 50+ planes ahead of us. I know this because I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot on his way home. About 2 hours in, there was 30 planes left to take off, and then us. They air traffic control people were only letting off one plane per minute which is what was holding us. THEN after the 3 hours on the runway, our crew timed out and the brought us back to gate saying we were not taking off. At the gate, they informed us the flight was not 'cancelled' but 'delayed' to the following morning. I/m not sure how a 16 hour difference is considered 'delayed', but I digress. All Delta reps had NO idea the time of the new flight the following morning and told us all to just 'keep checking the app'. Now, fortunately for me I live in Brooklyn and could just go home. But what about everyone who was at LGA as a layover? I heard from multiple passengers they had to spend the night in a hotel, that Delta did not pay for. We finally got notice the new flight was scheduled for 9:30AM, which they AGAIN delayed until 11:30AM. Many people did not get the second change, and were already at LGA for the 9:30AM flight. To say Delta's handling of this was poor is an understatement. We knew when we got on that plane the crew was going to time out. Again, I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot who told me to 'get comfy, we're gonna be here awhile' the minute I sat down. Delta should have given us a fresh crew, or had a backup one prepared. I understand the weather is out of there control, and I understand you can't have a tired crew piloting an airplane, but there are other ways to have us take off remotely on schedule."

Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"

Pros: "Great crew and passengers"

Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"

Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."

Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."

Pros: "Plane got to NY."
Cons: "Plane got to NY an hour late due to a maintenance issue, and we missed a connection because of it. Delta staff very unhelpful regarding connections and rebooking... we got redirected to a wall of phones to call for help."

Pros: "Very comfortable for such a quick flight."

Pros: "Comfortable flight. Very kind staff."

Pros: "Good onboard service, comfortable seat, flight was timely."
Cons: "Preposterous delay at check-in for a sky priority and business class passenger, fully disorganized boarding procedure that staff don't know how to handle, and one female flight attendant in particular who chatted way too loudly with her colleagues during takeoff and landing."

Pros: "Both of my flights were on time which i know sounds basic but all of the flights i’ve catched from SJO to X were late and this time my connection in Panama was only 1h15 and we got there earlier, so that was nice!"

Cons: "better plan es"

Pros: "We were able to get emergency aisle seats. We are 6’2 and 6’4"
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 11, didn’t depart until 3. No pillows, no blankets on overnight flight. Speakers on plane not working so couldn’t hear announcements. Landed 30 minutes later than was told. STILL sitting on runway 15 mins later waiting for a gate."

Cons: "I did not like that I was assigned a seat at the back bulkhead when there were several empty seats available)"

Pros: "Comfortable, prompt, clean."

Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable, smooth and overall satisfactory. They gave us a sandwich meal and there was some inflight entertainment (which I didn’t use)."
Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."

Pros: "I was really impressed with the friendly and efficient service from Aeromexico. First time flying them and really appreciated the experience - so much better than the service on US airlines."

Pros: "Very friendly staff/crew, sufficient leg room even in a regular seat. Hot meal."
Cons: "Zero entertainment options available - the computer screens didn’t work at all, no movies, music, map. Also no functioning WiFi as advertised (on either flight) and the machine would only barely and intermittently charge my phone."

Pros: "Quick flight, ease going through customs"

Pros: "Nothing all the cabin crew members were horrible and very rude."
Cons: "Cabin crew and ground personal."

Pros: "Flight attendants were good"
Cons: "As mentioned in a previous comment, while I enjoy AM domestic first/business class product on the new planes, unfortunately, I cannot say the same about their old ones. AM seats do not provide a footrest, and there is the lack of the IFE, which on a longer flight like mex-tij could have made the flight more enjoyable. Food, AM domestic business class food options are not the best, it was a turkey/cheese sandwich on a white bread with heavy mayo, and milk rice-while delicious, also very heavy on the sugar"

Cons: "On boarding the plane the crew didn’t have control of the people and when zone 2 started to board zone 3 started to cut the zone 2"

Pros: "I have been disappointed with Aeromexico before, but this time I had a very good experience. The crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I had to pay extra for a seat, to avoid sitting in the middle seat."

Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."

Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"

Pros: "Brand new plane. Lots of extra leg room coming from a guy of 6 ft."

Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."

Pros: "Staff was helpful and friendly at Guadalajara airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. I wasn't notified of luggage fees and had to pay in 1000 Mexican pesos plus taxes. My husband is handicapped and we had to be shuttled from terminal 2 to Tom Bradley. It was very inconvenient!"

Pros: "I was in Business Class It was confortable."

Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."

Pros: "Good!"

Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."

Cons: "AEROMEXICO doesn't allow any checked baggage you have to pay for every single piece of luggage that you check so I guess this is not good at all!!! On top of this I called like 5 times to Aeromexico....Reservations...custumser service...reservations again...custumer service again... bottom line each one of them gave me different information?????!!!! so I just had to guess which one was the correct answer from the same company AEROMEXICO!!!!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Great they have light meal with drinks and coffee. Also had entertainment to make trip feel short."

Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."

Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"

Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."

Cons: "Had flight delay affecting my connecting flight."

Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Flight and crew scheduled on time, better service and compensation for wasted time."

Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"

Pros: "cabin attendant was excellent"
Cons: "terrible plane because overhead space is extremely limited and the curvature of the plane limits legroom for window seats."

Cons: "communication prevented me boarding my British flight, rerouting done by american, had paid reseved seat don't know if I will receive a refund. now have to spend my first few days back home going through the delayed flight to europe protocols."

Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"

Pros: "Width of the seat is nice"
Cons: "Boarding process is not great and delays while already boarded are terribly frustrating"

Pros: "Equipment was adequate. I liked the on board emergency instructions!"

Cons: "Last minute (after partial boarding) they had to switch planes due to a "maintenance issue" which I would think they would have caught earlier."

Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."

Pros: "Our flight was delayed somewhat by a service door not completely latched. The plan returned to get it closed, then was promptly airborne. After the delays, the flight actually made it to our destination by our scheduled arrival time."

Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"

Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."

Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "3 hour delay on international flight from JFK made for a very long day."

Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"

Cons: "We were never asked for beverage service.Also when arriving and exiting to retrieve our bags when congested with baggage no room to stand and wheelchairs all at once trying to exit up ramp.Very unorganized and chaotic."

Pros: "The leg room in first class."
Cons: "Meal was not good."

Pros: "Kind and attentive crew"
Cons: "Was a bit delayed"

Cons: "The layover was supposed to be an hour...ended up taking 3.5 hours!"

Pros: "Good schedule"
Cons: "the commuter terminal in Dulles is miserable and chaotic, but not really United's fault"

Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"

Cons: "The pilot to be on time"

Pros: "FA did his best"
Cons: "Flight not cancelled"

Cons: "cramped seats made for an uncomfortable flight."

Pros: "Since there was an empty seat next to me, I was able to spread out a bit."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. WiFi sucks."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"

Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."

Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."

Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"

Pros: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Cons: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"

Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "3 row seats such a tight squeeze"

Cons: "The website doesn’t specify that the last row has no recline!"

Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"

Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"

Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."

Pros: "I enjoyed the crew and the service... Top notch"
Cons: "No tv on plain no free wifi like it was advertised"

Cons: "My united app didnt find my flight;"

Pros: "Plane was delayed 87 minutes because the plane had maintenance issues that the air and did not organize and plan better. For their error, I missed my client and got fired."
Cons: "The airline not getting me on the Dayton-Newark then Newark-Rochester flight so I could get to my destination on time. The agent at the airport was not helping or listening. Now I miss my client loss a lot of money for the day and I got fired."

Pros: "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
Cons: "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."

Cons: "Everything good"

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "2 hour delay"

Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"

Cons: "After a three hour layover we were all set to board our jet when we were told that there were issues and would be delayed. After 2 hours they boarded us on an old propeller plane that was loud and uncomfortable. A man was forced to move from his seat in the front of the plane to the back because of weight balancing problems."

Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."

Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."

Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"

Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."

Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."

Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."

Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."

Pros: "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."

Cons: "Loaded us all on the plane stowed our luggage all belted in they then announced a few minutes later to get off the plane because the pilot was still in Burlington Vermont and take luggage with us, including red tag luggage. Never should have loaded us when pilot not yet arrived. Plenty of irate customers."

Pros: "The staff were good."
Cons: "I didn't like how we left more than two hours late. United always pulls this kind of thing. The flight was overbooked, so we weren't going anywhere until people volunteered to take later flights. To allow enough time for someone to volunteer, aircraft maintenance was 'required', a scenario I have seen on a few other United flights. Honestly, I will never fly United again and am cancelling my future flights in favor of taking the train instead. It takes eight hours instead of a theoretical 1.5 hours, but at least it is reliable and not much worse than the ACTUAL time it takes to fly United. Worst airline ever. Barf."

Cons: "Not even beverage service. Water only"

Pros: "Service was great, flight attendants are awesome. I did not have any inconveniences boarding or with my belongings."
Cons: "Food was extremely expensive. Snacks were so simple. Had to pay for entertainment. Also paid for my baggage, i thought it was included. It was a carry on and had to check that in, absurd."

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"

Pros: "It was fine for the most part. No frills, quick flight."
Cons: "With a tight connection, they should really at least sell snack boxes on these quick flights. By the time we arrived in ROC, all the restaurants were closed. Hungry humans."

Pros: "The staff were very professional yet friendly"

Pros: "The flight was short once we finally got in the air."
Cons: "Waited forever for plane to arrive. Waited for repairs. Once boarded, waited for more repairs. Supposed to leave at 12:30pm; left at 4:30pm."

Cons: "Flight updates were terrible, non existent. The people by the gate were not helpful. My daughter had to check online for updates.Customer service over the phone was poor as well. No one knew what time the plane would board,etc. Terrible overall experience. Need to improve on communication with passengers."

Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. There was no option for on flight entertainment (despite it being an international flight). Probably would never fly United internationally again."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
