Cons: "Satisfactory flight"

Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "Tv selection"

Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."

Pros: "Great crew love the jetBlue experience"

Pros: "Friendly, down to earth staff that looks like their happy to be there, including Pilot."
Cons: "Every time my flight is always late and I usually have my family with me. An on time flight would be nice."

Pros: "Leg room entertainment and coffee"
Cons: "Three hour wait on plane due to maintenance issue. Pilot kept stating he thought it would be resolved in 15-20 minute. We were given water but not offered anything else. We were not given option to get off the plane nor given any compensation or good will gesture like a 25 Voucher etc. I was disappointed withJet Blue."

Pros: "Mint is the standard that all airlines should try to meet. The staff was so friendly, food was great, seats were comfortable, and entertainment was available with many options."
Cons: "Nothing - it was the best travel experience I’ve ever had."

Pros: "They have cheezits and leg room and it's a quick direct flight"
Cons: "Male flight attendant seemed annoyed to be there. It wasn't obvious but as someone who works in the service industry I could tell he was being short with people and could have provided a much better experience if he wanted to be there. Intercom messages sounded like an annoyed demand because we were bad passengers not an announcement simply alerting us of the seatbelt sign being turned on again"

Cons: "Made it to my destination 2 hours later."

Cons: "Had to pick up gate-checked bag at carousel. But it arrived quickly."

Cons: "We were delayed for over two hours."

Pros: "Amazed with the attentiveness and comfort on the plane. The snacks were great had a few options that other airlines dont."
Cons: "Nothing! Completely satisfied with my flight."

Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early! The staff are always great, free drinks and snacks, plus personal entertainment for all. One of my planes was brand spanking new - it was gorgeous and oh so comfy! I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Left right on time."

Pros: "Check in crew at BOS was great - this team of folks is not on the rating, but wanted to call out that they were very friendly and helpful, one kind lady walking me thru the bag tag printing process when I hadn’t realized I needed to do that."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was distracting. I was trying to read and would have preferred that it was dark. I didn’t want to bother anyone to ask how to shut it off so I just put up with it. Is it possible to shut the screen off if you don’t want to use It?"

Pros: "JetBlue has the best snack options."

Pros: "The professionalism of the crew while still having a good time and making it a great experience. Am a frequent flier and this is an airline I hope to travel on again very soon!"

Pros: "Crew was very personable and friendly- made the flight very enjoyable!"

Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "It was bumpy and my mom is a very nervous person"

Cons: "Snacks- variety would be good such as pretzels, trail mix or fruits"

Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."

Pros: "more leg room, real snacks"
Cons: "horrible sound quality on the in flight movies/TV"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "No priority boarding for credit card holders"

Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."

Cons: "1/2 hr late"

Pros: "Everything was terrific...on time and a very smooth experience including the flight! Thank you!"

Pros: "Got a TSA Pre Check stamp on my ticket to start, flight was on time and the crew was professional and very accommodating."

Pros: "Friendly polite crew, good takeoff and landing, little turbulence. Our flight was delayed, but only by half an hour."
Cons: "Having to pay twice because I'm a person of size and hang only little over when most of the back of the plane was empty. I can see having to pay for the seat to reserve it, and having to pay if I'm using 2 seats and the plane is full otherwise, but if the flight isn't full, I should be able to get a refund for one of the seats. It's discrimination and it's not okay. Or, you know, have seats that fit all your customers. Also the SiriusXM sound was of extremely poor quality."

Pros: "Never again will jet blue get a penny from me - worst flights ever !!!!!"

Pros: "I just really appreciate the staff ,the attitudes are wonderful always there ready to help you. And the airplanes are very comfortable and roomy. And it seems like my flights are always on time or early."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "TV sets JetBlue apart - except when it doesn't work. Snack choices are bad."
Cons: "No TV; plane was not clean - smelled like the toilet overflowed. And this was the first flight of the day - the plane was parked at the gate for over an hour prior to boarding."

Pros: "Professional, friendly, always on-time or earl, nothing lost ever.. Smooth flight. Always the BEST!"

Pros: "The service was good, the snacks are always good."
Cons: "It was a 9:15 pm flight, and was delayed about an hour due to maintenance issues. So it made for a later than expected arrival. But I am glad you took the care to make sure that everything was okay by changing the gate and putting us on another plane. The flight was the bumpiest I have had with JetBlue, but that was just due to the atmosphere."

Cons: "Night flights should include blankets and pillows. (at no extra cost) Just like a hotel. Traveling with bulky blankets and pillows in order to be able to sleep on a night flight is not always possible. JB provides eyemask and ear plugs, which is ridiculous. I can bring my own eyemask and ear plugs. I even paid extra for upgrade seats! The headrests are not adjustable and the recline is barely noticeable. It was a long 6 hour flight! No entertainment. I have flown other airlines to South America and been able to enjoy full feature recent release films, TV shows and games. Why can't JB figure out how to do that on their international flights? No meals. All other airlines offer meal service on their international flights. I pay as much for JB flights as I have for other airlines going to South America. The value for JB tickets just isn't there. To fly JB, picture yourself getting on board with your own pillows, blankets, entertainment and food. That about sums it up."

Pros: "Always a great flight, service and organization when I fly Jet Blue. Overall a great experience except for my very differing experiences with the less time expedited security option. I am not sure if this differs by airport but the differences are very important ones, as it made one experience worth the money and one experience not worth the money."
Cons: "My only complaint was that I purchased a More Space seat as it came with less time expedited security for free for my return flight after having such a quick and easy time with security on my flight to FL..When I flew from Boston to Orlando, I was sent through the TSA quick security line and it was awesome. On my flight back from Orlando, i had a separate line which skipped to the agent checking your ID, which was not much of a time saver, but then had to wait in the regular security line with everyone else. This was a stark difference and very disappointing from my initial experience with the less time option. I never would have paid 40.00 for the more space if I knew that the security bypass was not much of a bypass at all."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable aircraft. Great crew."

Cons: "Actually, everything was fine. No need for improvement .... even the airfare was great!"

Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Entertainment selection is impressive (though I didn't use it). Drinks and snacks are provided."
Cons: "Boarding process was time consuming due to poor organization from Delta. Unloading process takes forever for the same reason. Despite booking at the same time my fiancee and I didn't get seated next to one another."

Pros: "The flight was great from beginning to end. I have no complaints."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The attention, kindness and never tiring helpful attitude of the personnel."

Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover.

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: "Nothing. Iberia Airlines employs theives."

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: "Will choose Aeromexico again! Very nice and helpful crew and staff. Appreciated that food and beverages were served."

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: "The Guadalajara airport is slowly looking more and more like a proper international hub. Cheers to that!!"

Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."

Pros: "Bumpy flight dirty plane hard to access terminal one for early connection. Train doesn’t open until 5 so you have to pay for a bus. Ridiculous"

Pros: "Great customer service, very helpful from start to end ... always with a smile and willing to help"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "I like that I and my luggage arrived at my destination."
Cons: "Flight Delays: It happens, BUT every flight, but 1 was severely delayed leaving, arriving, and then departing again. The only flight that left and arrived on time was Guatemala to Mexico City. Mis information from Flight Crew: Aero Mexico flight crew put everyone in a panic on flight from LAX to MEX and Guatemala to MEX by saying that everyone had to pick up their luggarge.. even if you were just in transit to another country. Once I went down and asked Information, they stated that I did not need to pick up my bags as they would in fact be transportated to my final destination. When I told AeroMexico about this.. they didn’t seem to care that they were saying something completely different to everyone on their planes. In the future I will avoid booking with Aero Mexico.. I felt vulnerable and that Mexico didn’t have its clients in their best interest. Additionally, their lack of WiFi is embarrassingly cheap of them. Guatemala has free wifi, I assumed everywhere provides wifi for its visitors. Mexico supposedly gives you 5 min free and they don’t make that easy to access."

Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"

Pros: "2 problems - there wasn't enough time scheduled between my connection in mexico city when i was coming from florida to get through customs so I missed my connection and there wasn't any aeromexico staff around to assist. - the personal screens in each seat on the last flight from Mx city to Guadalajara couldn't be shut off and I was forced to have commercials being flashed very close in front of my face when I wanted to relax."
Cons: "2 problems - there wasn't enough time scheduled between my connection in mexico city when i was coming from florida to get through customs so I missed my connection and there wasn't any aeromexico staff around to assist. - the personal screens in each seat on the last flight from Mx city to Guadalajara couldn't be shut off and I was forced to have commercials being flashed very close in front of my face when I wanted to relax."

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: "Punctuality, good film selection."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Courteous and service oriented."
Cons: "There was only 1.25 hours to connect in Mexico City and the originatng flight left 25 minutes late. Wouldn't have been an issue but baggage delivery in Mex. D. F. was quite slow. First bag arrived quickly enough but second bag was delayed almost 15 minute more before appearing on the caroussel. Going back through securuitY was slow despite a special line for connectin passengers. Result-- missed flight by about 10 minutes and reschedule was for a flight 3 hours later. Luckily, bags never made it onto original flight so arrived with me on later flight. Inconvenient but understandable. Mexico City requires more than an hour (at least 1hr and about 40 minutes more) to make connections."

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."

Cons: "5 hours delay and the did not give us a clear explanation"

Cons: "I was told at the check in counter that I had to pay for baggage even though I had made the trip from Chicago to Santiago via Mexico City ten days prior and was able to check two suitcases without having to pay for baggage. Also, both of my suitcases were damaged during this flight."

Pros: "Cancelled my fight 2 times"

Pros: "Service by the crew."
Cons: "The plane from Cancun to Guadalajara being extremely late. I was unable to shop in the duty free shops."

Cons: "Unable to make flight due to unable to leave the country because they were not getting anyone leave the city and I called to explain situation and nobody could reschedule or give me a refund . The situation was critical and out of my hands. It's unfortunate that I lost the flight and 3 Almost $300. It so sad that no one could help me with this unexpected situation."

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."

Pros: "It is a good airplane very modern"
Cons: "Delayed. We wait almost three hours in the airplane."

Cons: "The flight was late, the seat space minimun, I was on the kast row so the de back seat could't retract. The flight was full"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs because a crew member got sick. Along with several passengers we missed our connecting flights and basically lost an entire day of vacation rebooking a flight later in the day. At one point before boarding, asked if we could be put on another flight and reimbursed and could not get a straight answer. Big part of the delay was luggage being sorted out to remove the bags of passengers they oversold flights too. It's been one of the longest days ever."

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: "Been non discriminatory"

Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"

Pros: "awesome"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."

Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."

Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"

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

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: "It was extremely hot on that flight. I continually had to get up to cool off."

Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Cons: "Didn’t fly"

Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"

Pros: "Smooth and quick flight"
Cons: "Warm, no refreshments"

Pros: "Went without a hitch"
Cons: "Na"

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: "The entertainment"

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

Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""

Cons: "Delayed!!"

Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."

Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"

Cons: "The information of code share was not clear..so I was expected to fly with JAL..."

Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"

Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"

Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays."
Cons: "Again flights attendants were a bit dry."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Nice landing."
Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv"

Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."

Pros: "crew was good"

Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."

Cons: "Availability of on-board meals, I wasn’t able to purchase anything. Nothing available from the lunch menu even at the exact lunch time, in a +5h flight. Truly disappointed"

Cons: "working bathroom and entertainment system"

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

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Seating is kind of cramped. More legroom would be appreciated."

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: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."

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

Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."

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"

Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"

Pros: "It got me to Houston, but that’s about it"
Cons: "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"

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."

Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of the airline"

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."

Pros: "Food for purchase"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for 2 hours and not being offered food or drink or to be taken back to the gate"

Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "That they lost my bags"

Cons: "Everything good"

Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote 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: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"

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

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: "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."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"

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

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Once the plane was good to go everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "They changed our gate from one end of the terminal to another right at the time of boarding and made no announcements. We all found out by text or had to be told by other passengers."

Pros: "personal service"

Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"

Cons: "Nothing was fine"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "I cancelled this flight.....not sure why Kayak keeps sending me these emails."

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!"
