Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was great, very generous with snacks and beverages, and prior to boarding we were able to switch flights and seats without problem. All the Delta agents were extremely helpful, and had great customer service!"

Cons: "Far in advance I requested a seat with extra leg room for a back condition that is supported by a physicians note. The seat did not appear to me to have extra leg room. I was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "The seat was ok, but the crew was very good and helpful"
Cons: "Good company, have the very good attendants"

Pros: "Handing by any cap was great to get us on the plane on time."
Cons: "The plane we got on time to board was delayed enough to miss our connecting flight, so delayed another 3 hours when missing the next flight."

Pros: "Flight was mostly uneventful, which is great! Right after takeoff we made a complete circle and no information was given as to why, but we assumed it was air traffic."

Cons: "Great flight"

Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"

Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat."

Cons: "Nothing honestly"

Pros: "New plane with good features. I was very comfortable."

Cons: "Duration"

Pros: "On time, good flight"
Cons: "No power on outlets at waiting room airport, charge 2 dollars for earplugs"

Cons: "Delta always has 1 or maybe 2 people checking everyone in, including the baggage drop. So, EVERYONE has to wait for one person to finish checking in the first class passenger with a thousand needs. Very poor service as is their norm."

Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"

Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."

Pros: "comfortable seats enough overhead bin space."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"

Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"

Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."

Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."

Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly and the plane was half empty."
Cons: "When are the Airlines going to start serving a decent coffee on board? It does not matter Delta is now serving Starbucks. Something they do that messes up the whole thing, probably overheat for too long."

Pros: "I liked that flight time was shorter than expected"
Cons: "no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. seats don't have much leg room, and not very comfortable. i paid for extra luggage, and they were strict about the weight(had to take any items out of the bag, even that i had one large bag, and one small bag(2nd bag was underweight)"

Pros: "Flight management and service is better relatively"
Cons: "Gate agents are useless"

Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."

Pros: "Courtesy seating"

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."

Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"

Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."

Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"

Pros: "New and improved food options!"
Cons: "Boarding took more time than usual. They were able to accommodate less carry on baggage."

Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."

Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."

Pros: "Was a comfortable flight"
Cons: "Food options for those with dietary restrictions"

Pros: "The crew was great and good customer service"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Took a very long time in check in. Agents were very nice; just very slow. Should have kiosks in Buenos Aries. We did not have internet to get our tickets before going to airport."

Pros: "super friendly crew and excellent service"
Cons: "seats that go fully flat in business class"

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "The attendants were in a bad mood and/or unhappy with their jobs. Short answers - not very friendly, but this isn't uncommon on Copa flights. I give them a "zero" on personality."

Pros: "The cree was very accommodating. The comfort level was adequate. The food was not very good."
Cons: "The flight experience was what I expected. What I didn't expect was that our luggage was sent on a later flight and that just triggered other mishaps, headaches and spent more money on our pre-arranged pick up service and other unnecessary expenses.."

Pros: "All is good"

Pros: "they were super friendly and helpful"
Cons: "my luggage could have arrived with me"

Cons: "El hotel que reserve y pagué no puedo entrar a el, por que en Panamá se necesita visa panameña de verdad estoy muy molesto, ahora me toca dormir en el piso de el aeropuerto con mi esposa estoy muy molesto"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Food, silence on flighting, crew all the time make many rules all the night, and nobody sleeped."

Cons: "The flight was overbooked. The attendant did not inform us at all. We were questioned to a level that is acceptable on why we could not change our flight times. No vegetarian options to meals. Not sufficient blankets. When asking the crew for these things they had no customer service in explaininh"

Pros: "Seats were very uncomfortable and no option for wifi. Boarding process seemed a bit haphazard."
Cons: "Honesty, everything. Just seemed like no one knew what they were doing,"

Pros: "The friendly service provided by the staff on the aircraft and in the terminal."
Cons: "Nothing in my opinion overall an excellent experience."

Pros: "It got me back to Chicago."
Cons: "It was so uncomfortable - the seats were horrible and the temperature on the plane was way too hot the entire flight."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Copa Airlines has the worse entertainment system. I flew business and the food was pathetic. If you are sitting at the last two rows (out of four), they might run out of options for dinner and you are left without choices. I feel sorry for the crew that have to come to you and say "I only have left chicken ". Very cheap airline overall. I can't believe this is Star Alliance."

Pros: "The seats were so uncomfortable and impossible to sleep in. This is hardly worth the discount as you land so stiff and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seat comfort and Design. Terrible for 9-hour flight. Plane configured to minimize bathroom space and maximize seats. Food entertainment and Liquor all cheap"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Excelente"

Cons: "I was not able to board my connecting flight from Panama City Panama to Cali Colombia and was told there were no more available flights until the next day.

This is the worst experience I have had with an airline in my almost 40 years! I would like to see how we can get a credit or refund for flight!"

Cons: "same issue"

Pros: "Snacks really help jet lag Movies"
Cons: "Small aircraft"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. I ordered Kosher meals, but they had only one of the two meals Kosher for me, so I pretty much watched everyone else eat while I couldn't. Besides, I asked three different flight attendants for white wine and none ever brought it."

Pros: "Served great airline food, and the staff is very friendly. Free alcohol is also available."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I was quite disappointed that I was never informed that in order to have a vegetarian meal it had to be ordered ahead of time and the only meal options both were meat. So rather than offering something different which I'm assuming was not even available I didn't get anything to eat. Wouldn't it make more sense to have 2 ... or even one non meat option rather than 2 with meat considering meat eaters will eat things lacking meat while vegitarian cannot."

Pros: "Perfect"

Cons: "No issues at all"

I CANCELED THE TRIP WITH COPA AIRLINES ( WORSE COMPANY IN THE WORLD) AND THEY SAID THAT THE PROBLEM IS NOW WITH THE WEBSITE WE BOUGHT THE TICKET FROM. PRICELINE AND I'M GUESSING YOU. ANYWAY, I'M SURE YOUR COMPANY WILL ALSO NOT HELP SO WHY EVEN BOTHER. BUT IF YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN HELP ME GET MY MONEY BACK TO A TRIP THAT WAS NOT SAFE TO TAKE IN FIRST PLACE PLEASE LET ME KNOW."

Pros: "The crew and staff were wonderful and professional"

Cons: "Your call center, and your offices are so seriously deficient. I as assured by agent that I was assigned seats 5. They lie to your face. The problems are then at the airport."

Pros: "plane was comfortable"
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't polite"

Cons: "Nelson Jose zelaya durmió en una sill en ese aeropuerto porque no lo dejaron hacer conexión a punta cana que era su destino; porque nunca dijeron nada tanto el Consulado de Panamá como la aerolínea que cuando una persona ha sido deportará de US A no puede viajar; utilizaron el fly que estaba comprado para su devolución al país de origen; ustedes creen es justo?"

Pros: "Everything went well. It was nice that the flight was not overcrowded and there was room to sit comfortably."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant."

Pros: "Leaving the plane when it landed."
Cons: "Second time in a five day span where i didn't have a seat because they overbooked and over sold. The first time resulted in a two day delay and they tried to blame my connecting flight when , in fact, they had oversold the flight. The reps at LAX were horrific. The only She was awful. manager refused to talk to me about the issue as she had other customers to take care of...devil spawn. No help. I had to call the online number to get another flight and they tried numerous times to talk to her but she refused. Yet, I would see devil spawn on her phone laughing and joking and talking... but too busy to help the consumer. She was awful. Horrible."

Pros: "The trip out was excellent. Food was good."
Cons: "They forgot to arrange for wheel chairs in Panama and Miami so it was an inconvenience. To make matters worse,Pne fellow wound up taking us out in bits by advancing one wheel chair and walking back for me and so on. He droptus off in a secure area an when it was time to board, staff demanded that we walk back to the Security point. The woman was adamant and supposedly a supervisor finally agreed that we could wait for a wheelchair. In Miami they had only requested one wheelchair. The food on the Panama to Miami flight left a lot to be desired."

Also when I walked down to the plane, I just walked right in and the bag fit perfectly and nobody said anything. She needs help with how she handles these things."

Cons: "Flight was delay 3:30 hrs"

Pros: "El servicio en general de la aerolínea y el módulo de información de vuelos"
Cons: "Que hubiera un poco más de espacio entre asientls"

Pros: "No complaint at all, I am very satisfied."

Cons: "The seat on the flight are too small the average person does not fit comfortable."

Cons: "that my ticket was managed by Just Fly when the Kayakpage said that the ticket is Aeromexico's. I will not use Just Fly anymore and Kayak risks me going directly to Aeromexico or other airlines if they are not transparent with the vendor."

Pros: "The flight attendant for this flight she was really nice and friendly good!! Nothing compared to my flight from LAX TO CDM.."

Pros: "Me gusto que el vuelo salio a tiempo, tamien que los sobrecargos son muy amables y el abordaje aunque se hacen unas lineas enormes es un tanto veloz conciderando la muchedumbre, con el poco tiempo que tienen para ocupar la cabina en realidad hacen milagros, mil dracias"
Cons: "El bocadillo que ofrecen es muy pobre y en mi criterio o mejor no proveer nada o mejorar la calidad, el cafe, bueno; deja mucho que decear. Y bueno que decir de el espacio entre acientos, va uno con las rodillas en el respaldo de el vecino al frente pero bueno en fin no esta todo tan mal, AeroMexico Gracias por sus atenciones."

Cons: "Rough Landing"

Pros: "Very comfortable. Good service in general."
Cons: "Limited snacks available throughout the flight, only nuts."

Cons: "We chose seats. Those seats were not ours when we flew. My daughter and I were put in middle seats in seperate rows in the back. Obviously Kayaks program is very faulty. It was my first booking with them and my Last."

Pros: "The crew were friendly. Good plane landing."
Cons: "The restroom should have been cleaner."

Pros: "Flight was on time, we had inflight entertainment via TVs in the headrest, boarding was great, everyone was very helpful."

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "I upgraded to AM PLUS so that I could take advantage of the EASY CHECKING. WIDER SEATS. BE AMONGST THE FIRST TO GET LUGGAGE. ALL THIS ITEMS WERE PROMISED BY YOU WEBSITE. non of these things happened. I was instructed to email to request a refund. Took ten days to here back and was denied. You guys have a perfect procedure for not giving refunds. Can’t talk to anyone by phone then take 10 days to deny. By that time most will just give up. I am a frequent flyer that will NEVER fly with you again and neither will the employees of my company."

Pros: "Smooth and easy."

Pros: "Great staff, smooth ride, entertainment but my screen would restart frequently"
Cons: "Wish there were outlets in the plane or WiFi, the screens would black and restart interrupting your movie."

Cons: "less legroom in my seat than my neighbors'"

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The screen at my seat did not work. Nobody told me why or mentioned it to me. While I was sleeping a flight attendant took away my tray of food before I was finishing eating."

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "Everything. The customer service was horrible. They did not honor the seat reservation and stationed my father in the back of the plane instead of the front of the plane as agreed on my reservations. They charged for baggage. The whole experience was horrible!"

Pros: "Great crew, great fare and pretty easy and convenient process."
Cons: "Seats aren't the most comfortable and very little leg room"

Cons: "Was over an hour late boarding. Webpage stated that one checked bad was included, but was charged anyway."

Cons: "This airline seemed to be unprepared at every step of the way. When I showed up to the airport to check my baggage (this was 2 hours before my flight) there was a huge line of people already there. I went to the back of the line and after 15 minutes of not moving I texted my family that I might be missing my flight. As I got closer to the front a nervous and overwhelmed Aeromexico employee went to the back of the line and handed the last person a paper and told her she would be the last person allowed on the flight. Anyone lined up after her was turned away because they had showed up too late. It seemed to me that those people would have made it onto the flight if the airline had been prepared and ready to check everyone in on time. When I was finally able to check my bag there were only 20 minutes left until my flight was supposed to depart. I rushed to the security checkpoint and ran to my gate in fear of missing my flight, only to find another large line of people. They hadn't even started boarding! After waiting 10 minutes in line (10 minutes before the plane was supposed to depart), the crew slowly strolled to the gate. They didn't even seem to care. Overall, my experience was below average, but seeing how people were not allowed to board due to the airline not being prepared for this flight, I would say I won't be flying Aeromexico again."

Cons: "my luggage had items stolen from it and i have not gotten any response from the airline regarding my missing items! im outraged"

Pros: "Great service inside the plane"
Cons: "Rude people checking in bags"

Pros: "Puntuality"
Cons: "Seats, food, too much waits at the gates"

Cons: "Death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

Cons: ". . . because of delays. Cannot comment but see above."

Pros: "I was in Business Class It was confortable."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Didn't offer anything except for dinner upon boarding and breakfast before landing. It was a fourteen hour flight."

Pros: "The staff was friendly and the food was pretty good considering it was airplane food. They came around and gave drink refills."
Cons: "The plane left almost an hour late, when previously it has said it was running on schedule. The seats are cramped, barely any leg room to get comfortable in."

Pros: "Priority boarding is what I like in this trip."
Cons: "The crew had occupied the front overhead lugguge space that cause passenger need to find space for their luggage not around their seat. The crew member also occupied the remaining business class, is it better to upgrade some customer to the business to have great experience for the trip."

Pros: "Hatted !"
Cons: "Extremely disappointed. The flight was cancelled and next day it was delay for about 2:30 hrs and they let us waiting inside of the plane got about 1h 30 min . I will never use air Mexico again"

Cons: "Aeromexico in a new cost reduction strategy decided to lower the temperature in their air conditioners making it a VERY uncomfortable flight. Also the lady at the gate didn't let me board the plane with a frappuccino arguing that's what the no liquids policy is about. A blatant display of ignorance and lack of training."

Cons: "Lack of information which caused delays to board."

Cons: "Old plane, no movie played and there was no food served even though it said there was a meal included with the flight"

Pros: "Everything was good, I was really impressed with the service."
Cons: "Nothing, I wouldn't change a thing about it."

Cons: "Late and no communication"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to entire crew not being there. Unacceptable in 2017."

Pros: "Great flight"

Pros: "That the flight ended"
Cons: "Everything. In a flight from Miami/Orlando (full of families) you are not allowed to choose seats, at the gate (where you supposed to change seats) the staff was rude, inside the plan people make their own changes and it gets a mess. Terrible experience."

Pros: "Friendly crews"

Pros: "Great flight overall"
Cons: "We were told that we get one checked bag free, but at check-in were told we had to pay. So much for low prices!"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."

Pros: "New Plane interior"

Cons: "The flight from Miami to Sao Paulo was delayed, therefore, I lost the flight from Sao Paulo to Asunción, those from Latam did not give me any solution and they sent me to the people of American Airlines saying it was their fault. I traveled 3 hours through the whole airport and they did not give me any solution, no new flight."

Pros: "Flight was routine except that I was astonished and pleased that the movie was “Love Simon”. Thank you American for maybe helping to change some attitudes in the center of the country."
Cons: "The food is still laden with gluten. The only gluten-free option was peanuts."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours. Flight crew arrived late further delaying trip. Connecting flight missed. Promised hotel reservation by American were non-existent when arriving in Dallas. Had to try to sleep in airport. Will never willingly fly American again"

Pros: "Everything seemed to go as normal. We were able to get 5 seats together."
Cons: "Wasn't a dislike, but would have liked to board a little earlier with kids of age 5, 7, and 9. However, all was fine and staff were pleasant."

Pros: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."

Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Fourth roundtrip flight where I have been unable to use my upgrades to upgrade to first class on any of the four segments. What good are the upgrades?"

Cons: "Past was dry... It was the first time but changed my experience"

Pros: "My flight is tomorrow"

Pros: "It got me there safely without delays."
Cons: "Food isn't good. the connections can be offered in a much better and time efficient way but they were not. I had to change airports in NYC with a 7-hr layover while they could've flown me to JFK (there was available flights). Same thing with coming back, a long layover in Texas."

Pros: "I was taking students and we had seats all over but they rearranged so my students could sit together. It was a nice flight with a friendly crew."

Pros: "British Airways I feel did everything to make it as best as possible."
Cons: "American Airlines (British Airlines partners) are a horrible airline. My 8 am flight has a mechanical issue. Which they kept up on the plane till 11. Now no mater what other plane I catch idmiss my connection in Dallas. Which means I don’t get to Paris on time. Which ruined my plans to surprise my gf and propose to her. It took one call to British Airlines to get me rebooked. Something american was taking hours. I still won’t make it on time but at least I’ll make it. American then misplaced my luggage and it took two hours to retrieve it. Turns out it was sitting behind the counter the whole time the kept telling me it would be on the baggage flame area."

Pros: "Everything was on point"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Food is horrible at AA, in special breakfast!"

Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"

Pros: "Flight boarded on time and landed 30 minutes early. Best part is the gate was open in Chicago so we truly arrived early. Flight crew was great too. Very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room and entertainment"

Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"

Pros: "Great movie selection and beautiful plane!"

Pros: "everything on travel is good."

Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"

Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."

Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."

Cons: "LATAM deboarded me from the flight after I had boarded. They claimed American had cancelled my reservation because they did not think I would make my connection. I ran in order to make it and then instead of offering me information on the next flight they left me stranded with instructions to find American. Terrible, terrible customer service. I will think twice before booking a LATAM flight again."

Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"

Pros: "They have a huge selection of movies"
Cons: "They do not have gluten free options"

Cons: "Not letting me know my first leg was operated by AA was very confusing and frustrating. I couldn't find Westjet at the airport at all. Had to guess from the departing time!"

Pros: "I liked because it was my mom first international trip and she got all the support from the crew. She loved it!"

Cons: "Voar 8 horas de Miami para Sao Paulo sem entretenimento de bordo foi péssimo. Poucos filmes e nenhum com legenda em Português. Se o voo era pro Brasil acho que era o mínimo que se poderia esperar. A comida estava horrível."

Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."

Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."

Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."

Pros: "We arrived to our destination safety."
Cons: "My seat was changed on me last minute without notifying me. I was moved away from my friends. It took a while to get this resolved with my seat. Once it was solved my chair was broken and could not recline. It took them 3 hours to get this fixed and were rude to me the entire time. I told them I had never been treated so poorly on a plane."

Cons: "Looks ghetto and no wifi"

Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."

Pros: "I liked a lot about our flight, especially that we didn't crash."
Cons: "For a 12 hour flight a little more leg room would have been nice."

Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"

Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"

Cons: "We spent 24 hours in LAX with absolutely no answers from American Airlines. This was a complete nightmare. I have never experienced anything like this."

Cons: "The delay my fly canceling poor communication I miss my dates etc"

Pros: "My flight was delayed and this is the second time Emerican airline will not give us at least food vouchers to help us out. The receptionist act careless about your situation, I'm still Stuck in Phili where I wa supposed to meet my connection flight, I had to spent the night at the airport!!! American air line is know for this type of dilemma, I will never again fly with American again. I just don't understand how they are not liable for anything at all!!!"

Pros: "Horrendous experience. 6 hours on the tarmac, followed by a another 7 hour delay. I missed my connecting flight in Sao Paolo - had to spend another $1300 to get to my final destination"
Cons: "Everything was terrible."

Cons: "More food options would have been great. I asked for the everything bun burger but didn’t get it brought to me."

Pros: "I liked the service of the flight attendants and the crew."
Cons: "The wifi partially worked but I was trying to download songs onto my device and the wifi didn’t let me download anything."

Cons: "It is unacceptable that United is still submitting its customers in business class to old planes and very old seats - including rows with four seats looking backwards with no separation between the seats (with the same issue on the window seats, which are double seats). Dreadful flight - my fare shall be refunded in full."

Pros: "The crew was excellent; courteous and professional."
Cons: "More room for overhead bags so checking carry-on isn’t necessary"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Tight space and food could be better"

Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Service is dismal and run down interior. Rips in seats. Lags way behind Asian or certain European airlines"

Pros: "I forgot my charger at the gate and the purser was so kind to help bring it back #unitedairlinecares"
Cons: "Nothing was a perfect flight"

Cons: "Stop pretending I can take a carry on. I'm boarding last, and guaranteed I'm going to have to check my carry-on."

Pros: "Flight crew was very nice Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Overall wonderful trip"
Cons: "17L entertainment screen didn't work"

Cons: "Delayed flight caused missed connection. Auto booked on late flight next day and had to change airlines to get better times. Voucher given for hotel off airport and shuttle never arrived and had to take Uber. Hotel very low quality."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and there was overhead space for my big backpack. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "We received drinks twice but never got snacks. A bit of food during a long early morning flight like this would have been very welcome."

Pros: "Awesome Plane and flight"

Pros: "Cost On time"
Cons: "Seats in the last row."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, early departure. Early arrival"
Cons: "Spotty internet, somewhat limited entertainment."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane was a little drafty."

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Dear United crew, there are definitely a bunch of great people amongst you. Can you please tell your fellow colleagues to start treating passengers as customers ... no need to leave your good spirits at home, just bring it on the plane ... starting with a smile! And yes, in seat power was not working. PS I wonder who decided on the power outlet placement ... 1.5M flying miles on United."

Pros: "service was good. instructions in English & Portuguese."
Cons: "lavatories didn't work below 5,000 ft. It was extremely cold so I had to put on my coat. Seats of course are very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Service was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "on time, got the seat I wanted"
Cons: "steward was somewhat aggressive, but was responsive one on one. Focus on size of carry on baggage was anxiety producing."

Pros: "Plane was a lot cleaner than I’ve been accustomed to. Boarding was great."
Cons: "I want real food on 4 hour flights where there’s only 1 hour between connections. Starving from 4am pacific to 5pm eastern time is not good for my blood glucose levels. Salt and gluten laden over priced snacks are not good enough"

Pros: "A comida"
Cons: "As cadeiras poderiam inclinar mais para trás."

Cons: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Narrow seat"

Pros: "The plane ride was great really liked the connecting times"

Cons: "there was someone sitting in my chair who got angry and it was very rude because I asked him to sit in the right place. I had to put my carry far from me because he put his on my head."

Cons: "Late, no leg room and bad wifi"

Pros: "Didnt try entertainment. Everything else perfect but airline food always average at best."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Half the flight booked, they let us switch to better seats!"

Pros: "Had to cancel."
Cons: "WaIting for refund"

Pros: "The free in-flight entertainment was great. I appreciate it being free as it makes up for some of the other issues of not being able to sit next to fellow travelers on the low-fare"

Pros: "the large Wide body plan"

Pros: "Had no food so don't know. Entertainment system was available, but did not use it."
Cons: "Would have been nice if I could turn it off the entertainment system."

Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu."

Pros: "It was good overall"

Pros: "Very helpful wheelchair boarding -- very fendly and professional ticket counter/check-in personnel"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"

Pros: "Staff nice and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback."

Pros: "Leg room & comfortable seating. Staff were nice & helpful"
Cons: "They should serve sufficient quantity of snacks in long journey"

Pros: "After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!"

Cons: "Boarding in IAH was a mess. Several gate changes, airport information screens didn't match with the actual departure gate, lines were not properly identified. Very bad."

Pros: "All the new amenities on united airlines are great the new seats are much more comfortable and have better leg room"
Cons: "No security for the wifi, I work In Silicon Valley and the soft security could be an issue but then again all the airlines lack passwords."

Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"

Pros: "It was a pretty smooth flight and it was pretty well organized."
Cons: "The plane was in the Houston hanger most of the day, but it seems they didn't test it. Even after being delayed on the ground due to rain and a mechanical problem with the ramp for three hours, the plane had to turn around and come back to Houston due to another mechanical issue. Finally left 13.5 hours late. I did receive a hotel room, breakfast and 10,000 miles compensation for the hassle, but I would rather have been in Brazil on time."

Pros: "The crew was awsome"
Cons: "my first flight was delayed so when I landed I had to run to the terminal to see if I can Catch my second flight I was worried my whole flight because I thought that I was going to miss the second flight and that my vacation was going to be delayed. Luckily they had not taken off and I think that they waited for us thank God and the crew"
