Pros: "Service was spectacular and the plane was almost new."
Pros: "flight was good."
Cons: "The wait in between flight is very long. For this return flight the wait at Lima airport transfer was nearly 11 hours. The wait at Bogota airport transfer is about 14 hours. Both of these airports had earlier flights BUT your booking service chose the MAXIMUM WAIT time at these transfer airports."
Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."

Pros: "Copa has a reputation for being the on-time airline in Central America, and so it was for all 5 of my flights with them this trip. Customer service on the phone was really great, too. They got things done, and done the first time."
Cons: "The in-flight TV screens are old-school and not very good."
Pros: "I understand that international flights to the USA have extra security, but this was a joke. Anyone with a little motivation could defeat this “security.” I had an Emergency Exit seat. Nobody told me they didn’t recline. I’d rather have a normal row and be able to recline."
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class. Awesome experience"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly. My flights were on time. Check in was easy."
Pros: "The flight attendants excellent customer services"
Cons: "An item stolen from my luggage"
Cons: "I went through security at Lima Peru (Jorge Chavez International), everything was fine. I arrived to Panama, and the gate was next door which is just great awesome. The bad part was that I had to go through a security check once again there, although I had not left the airport since I left Lima. I went through the exercise, I was told that there would be no liquids (8 oz bottle of water, soda, etc) allowed passed that check point. Yet they were selling these items next to the gate. It made no sense why this checkpoint and why the liquid restrictions. Once in the area if I wanted to go use the restroom or whatever I needed to go through the checkpoint. There were 6 Copa employees manning this station, that's extra expense that the company passes on to the flyer for a step that should be evaluated and look at to see why other airlines do not do this. I was not the only one getting frustrated with this setup, but also passengers that did not speak Spanish they could not communicate with Copa employees. I saw this liquid restriction with Spirit Airlines in Lima, and I decided not to fly with them any more, no matter how inexpensive their fares were. Spirit told us that it was US law that made them have people throw away their drinks, although they were bought in a secured area. To me this was just a way to charge for drinks on the plane. I never had to throw away my drink if I had bought it in a secured area."
Pros: "Loved the check in. No baggage expense. Up to two bags FREE! Then, we had a meal --that was included in the fare. The crew was pleasant and accommodating. Everyone was pleasant. To pass the time on the 5 1/2 hour flight, there were options for movies, TV, games and etc. Overall, it was a pleasant flight. When I book my next trip, I'm going to see if Copa goes there. If so, that's my first choice."
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "Considering their is no water for purchase after security the airline should offer much more water during the flight. I was only offered a drink once during a 5+ hour flight. I had to ask for additional water later on."
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is trying to appear as a big, powerful company. I choose them because there was direct flight from Chicago to Panama City. Big mistake. Take any American or European Airline. Worst experience ever!"
Cons: "Flights not on time, always late, lying employees and crew. They show a flight to Boston signs on the flight to Chicago, no airconditioning working. Bunch of idiots and incopetent people playing airline with passagers lifes. Never use them, you will thank for this advise someday."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and food was good."
Cons: "Someone stole my hat from the airline counter and no one could help track down who. I kept getting the run around. Flights were delayed and there was a lot of chaos albeit it might not have been the fault of the airline."
Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "Very crowded. Woke everyone up to serve breakfast"
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "Copa allows two bags of 50 pounds to be checked along with carry-ons. They provide a full meal on each flight (at least that we've been on). The crew is accommodating, even providing more than one drink. The chairs are fairly comfortable."
Cons: "The headset didn't work well."
Pros: "Comfortable leg room Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Very limited food options, International flights have poor entertainment options Very old seats and covers gave a very dull impression"
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival Friendly and accommodating staff"
Cons: "Old plane. No charging USB connectors"
Pros: "Nothing. Everything was a bad costumer service."
Cons: "I missed my flight because in the town I live , there was a landslide and rocks fall on the road. And it was impossible to get out of the town and I didn't find any help for refunding or changing the dates of my flight. Really bad costumer service, I'm still waiting for a reply of the emails I sent to vayama. Imposible to comunicar with it by phone with them and with the kayak office in Colombia."
Pros: "Very welcoming flight crew! Did their best to make sure we were all comfortable throughout the flight."
Cons: "Little bit of trouble boarding the flight from Panama to Chicago - speakers weren't working and the COPA employees were struggling to communicate with everyone and get them to line up and board according the their group numbers."
Pros: "Excelente communication from the front cabin to passengers"
Cons: "Clean restroom"
Cons: "Nothing everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Pros: "The boarding was a nice touch"
Cons: "Well i would think it would be a better expiernce cuz I've heard that copa was a good airline and their service was excelent but i was wrong the food was dry and the people were rude the entertainment was a joke. The music would play the same song's over and over."
Pros: "All of my grievances regard the Panama staff at the airport and on the plane, the staff and services at O'Hare were top notch. Customs was extremely fast and efficient and everyone was friendly and did their jobs well. As far as the Panama airlines go, the food was okay, nothing special but not disgusting, and not all the flight attendants were unpleasant."
Cons: "The worst thing that happened was mean spirited security guards at the airport did a security check before allowing us to get to our gate. They forced us to dispose of a bottle of water that we had bought at that very airport. We were then quarantined into a waiting area with no seating and no access to other water, bathroom or food. Then on the plan we were offered beverages twice, so I was only able to get about six swallows of water from Panama to Chicago. Dehydration makes a plane ride a lot less healthy and comfortable. The staff was mostly unpleasant, the seats were really small and uncomfortable (more so than any other airplanes I've been aboard), and for some reasons they kept turning the main lights on and off, allowing us to sleep and then waking us all up for no good reason. Unbelievable."
Pros: "The people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."
Pros: "Service was good everything except the entertainment system"
Cons: "No entertaiment system"
Pros: "The service by the crew in providing the food and drinks was excellent."
Cons: "Being an international flight of 5+ hours long, they only transmitted 1 movie."
Pros: "Don't you know this information already?"
Pros: "I liked being able to choose my own seat, and the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I'd rather have snacks than the weird beef and rice. As an aside, either the speaker in my arm didn't work or my headphones didn't work."
Pros: "service, and always on time"
Cons: "i got stuck in the last row, but my fault for checking in late"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was very nice."
Cons: "The staff at the Panama city airport while boarding were jerks. A couple of snobby women with attitude problems. Also there was basically no entertainment because it was impossible to see those little tv screens and even if yiu could see, you have to crane your neck. Also the lighting in this airplane was so horrid it was unbearable. Who chooses blue tinted lights? It's like flying in an industrial garage for 5 hours."
Pros: "landed safely. no f trump supporters yelling!"
Cons: "Need to add inseat entertainment for all flights."
Pros: "Meal was OK"
Cons: "Boarding announcement only in Spanish and without PA. Hard seats. Prefer individual video screen"
Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "Had over an hour for a connection at Panama city, however there was an additional security checkpoint at the gate so our entire layover was spent in line. There was no explanation for the additional security which was the first problem. Water bottles which were with us on the incoming flight leg were confiscated with no opportunity to replace them with unopened bottles due to the slowdown caused by the additional security. On a 6 hour long international flight, drinks were only served once and that was with dinner. Also, there was only a single movie and a 10+ year old television episode played as entertainment."
Pros: "Every thing was excellent, no complaints"
Cons: "I had to go through another check point (inside the airport,for abconnecting flight) made me throw away a sealed bottle of Gatorade that I purchased inside the airport 5 minutes earlier for 5 dollars. That is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "it was great! Great Airline!"
Cons: "you were not to add my last name to the reservation and I lose my flight. bad costumer service"
Pros: "The cabin crew was not just nice, but incredibly nice. They were patient and always had smiles on their faces (not that anything went wrong, but it's very nice to see a smile). There were 3 different food options, and they all came with a little salad; the in flight entertainment was working and people seemed to enjoy it (I was reading a book instead). Boarding was easy and fast, the plane was surprisingly comfortable!"
Cons: "Honestly, I thought everything was great. I was in row 18, so I had some extra space, but I really can't complain or suggest anything more! The cabin crew was awesome!"
Pros: "Short flight with no service."
Cons: "The airline’s contact phone lines are never answered you are left to n hold for ever I gave up after 30 minutes hold"
Pros: "Boarding went well and the seat was comfy."
Cons: "Sat at the gate with door closed, yet the landing was there, for 20 min, on top of being 15 min late. That could have not happened and it would have been better."
Cons: "We were very pleased with our flight"
Cons: "The Airplane was a 737 , without entertainment, for a 6 hour flight. Food was cold."
Pros: "The check-in at Ezeiza airport was quick and efficient."
Cons: "The food was quite bad (e.g., old lettuce, no vegetarian option), the flight attendants were brusque with the passengers, and the seats were very hard."
Cons: "Better seats and better boarding access"
Pros: "Was better organized"
Cons: "The food. Tasteless"
Cons: "The flight was changed, then changed back. We didn't get the second notification of the change and we missed our flight. We had to purchase another flight and also had to pay to have other flights rearranged due to the delay. $1500 later, we made it to Buenos Aires."
Cons: "Renew movies and music in the media center"
Pros: "It was a short flight with no real problems. After bad weather, everyone was doing what they could to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "We were delayed because of weather. The boarding process was very confusing and there were very few updates."
Cons: "food was very simple, cant say i enjoyed it, just ate to pass time.tv had very few movies and other stuffs as well.seats were too small"
Pros: "Me gusto el servicio y la gentileza de su personal. Aerolíneas siempre es muy placentera para viajar."
Cons: "La comida podría ser mejor. Alguna vez la hubo. Y deberían hacer cambio en las películas. Ya viaje varias veces y aun están las mismas películas. Me gusta cine nacional y sus series."
Pros: "Seats comfortable, till passenger in front leans all the way back."
Cons: "Pressed call light button. More than 1 hour later, crew noticed it, while serving beverages and simply shut it off without even asking what I needed. With difficulty, I got her attention and asked for her help. Announcement made before descending that seat backs should be up. Person in front of me ignored instructions. Cabin crew walked up aisle so fast she missed that and I could not catch her attention. So, seatback was in my face, a safety hazard, the entire descent. When we left, crew muttered thank you for flying us while she was looking at her phone. Did you ever feel that the cabin crew was totally useless?"
Pros: "It got us to where we were going so we could have an awesome vacation."
Cons: "Don't forget to pick up your baggage in Buenos Aires and recheck it to your final destination if this is where you go through customs. We didn't and almost didn't have our cold weather gear for our Antarctic Cruise. Also, we had to leave the international terminal and walk a pretty long distance to the terminal for Ushuaia which was originally difficult to figure out as there wasn't a lot of signage"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The snack and drink."
Cons: "The boarding went in decending order starting with the high number. Also baggage claim took a very long time."
Pros: "Terminal was spacious and pleasant. Crew was professional."
Cons: "I am baffled as to why water bottles were confiscated or emptied at the gate. This is the only airport in which I have encountered this after you have passed through security. It is important to stay hydrated on flights and the small cups of water delivered twice during the flight are not sufficient. No indication was given on tickets of what meals would be served. I ended up paying for a dinner in the airport only to be served a dinner at 12:30 am on the flight. It would make more sensed to have a light snack at that hour and a better breakfast served in the morning. The US Customs card handed to me was in Spanish only. An English option would have been good."
Pros: "Basically good and safe flight Food was served twice"
Cons: "Too hot Not enough liquids were served Tried to contact attendant and never got response Pressure upon landing was extremely painful in ears"
Pros: "Crew, rapidness, snack with Dulce de Lechen"
Cons: "No entertainment system, really early time (but as it was so early entertainment didn’t matter)"
Pros: "Flight was on time, luggage arrived in good condition. Seats slightly more roomy than on newer planes. Staff pleasant. Good to get a small snack on a short flight! We had coffee and a soft drink, twice. We arrived at EZE airport from the US and were happy to take this flight without having to change airports for the domestic flight."
Cons: "Noisy plane. Not Aerolinea's fault, but I didn't like the walk to the terminal from our international flight."
Pros: "Everything was great. No problems at all. Very professional staff!"
Cons: "My only complaint was the food was loaded with carbs. Bread more bread and lots of sugar. Other than that everything was fine...."
Pros: "Checkin, boarding and short flight all excellent as was service staff"
Pros: "No real complaints about the flight itself. Crew was friendly and the food wasn't too bad. We actually got there 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Seating was pretty tight and there was no in-flight wifi at all. That was a big problem for me since I was planning to do work on my flight/"
Pros: "No extra charge for checked bags, and in flight drinks and snacks. This plane has video screens so the in flight entertainment was awesome."
Cons: "Only came by once on a 3.5 hour flight for drinks service."
Cons: "Late, technical difficulties. Took 5 hrs for a 2 hr flight--unacceptable"
Pros: "Good service and food flight on time"
Cons: "The tiny seat and no much inclination"
Pros: "Nice snack"
Pros: "Boarding was ok."
Cons: "Return flight from Trelew was cancelled. Luckily they were able to get me the last seat on another flight but going to another airport in Buenos Aires. I had to get a cab to go to the international airport to catch my flight. It was a harrowing experience."
Pros: "nos dieron dos sandwich nada mas! una vergueza"
Pros: "A peacefull a quiet fly!"
Cons: "1 hour of delay"
Pros: "Nada. Una vergüenza! No pudimos viajar. Lo único bien que hicieron (porque deben hacerlo porque tiene un arreglo entre otras líneas) fue que nos mandaron por Iberia."
Cons: "Por un paro gremial nos cancelaron el vuelo dos veces y reprogramaron. Cuando llegamos a Ezeiza nos dijeron que estaba cancelado y que se te programaba para dos dias posteriores!!!! Una vergüenza. Los pasajeros somos rehenes de sus problemas internos. Típico de Argentina!!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Delays, lack of information provided. No English US customs forms?! Extremely uncomfortable. If possible, never flying this airline again."
Cons: "Hi, after made my web check in, i recibe a message of ¨Fligh Cancelation¨ the reason was a workers strike; and even i try to move my schedule, i lost a business meeting in Buenos Aires. Please help me, how i can have a refund, the people of Aerolineas Argentinas told me, to ask to the site where i buy the ticket...."
Pros: "It was a good flight, departed on time, landed on time, crew was attentive and responsive, food was as good as a flight food is anywhere else's"
Cons: "Crying children's, however it is not the airline fault"
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
Pros: "Customer Service"
Cons: "Some grumpy crew members that obviously did not appreciate being on the special schedule flight departing at 4am. Priority Boarding had only one security check personnel (as oppose to the six people at regular boarding). This made the boarding process very slow. The airline should allocate personal to the priority boarding first and then move them to the regular boarding once priority boarding is complete."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Enough legroom. On time arrival. Great experience."
Cons: "not anywhere near enough leg room"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Excellent staff"
Cons: "Crustless ham and chees sandwich was a little lacking but it was a short flight so ok"
Pros: "Modern airplaine"
Pros: "un vuelo pobre para la tarifa que aplican . horrible los asientos , comida de poca calidad y tripulación totalmente en otra dimensión y sin calidad de servicio al pasajero."
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth and on time. I got from point A to point B as planned, which is the most important thing."
Cons: "After going through airport security there was another check where they physically went through everyone's carry on bags at the gate right before boarding. It took forever, but I don't begrudge the airline for the stupid things the TSA makes them do. What *was* disappointing and quite disrespectful was that all liquids were confiscated at this check, even though they had all been purchased in the terminal after regular airport security. Water bottles from kiosks and unopened bottles of wine from shops. No warning about this beforehand so we could avoid wasting a bunch of money. Then to add insult to injury, the flight attendants never once responded to the call bell. I was trapped in the middle of the row behind a sleeping fat man desperate for water and without my water bottle. One little cup with each meal didn't cut it, so I came off my 11 hour flight nice and dehydrated and feeling ill."
Pros: "There food in good and the crews is very helpful."
Cons: "The seats are the worst. Very uncomfortable and without head support. No entertainment on board."
Pros: "Everything ok"
Pros: "the price and speed of the trrip"
Pros: "I liked the size of the plane. It made boarding quick and easy and there was lots of space for carry-on luggage. I also liked the amount of space I had for my feet. I was surprised we got a little snack and I thought the crackers, chocolate cookie, and lemon cookie were great."
Cons: "I wish I had had a pillow to sleep with. There was also some extremely rough turbulence when leaving Buenos Aires heading south and it made me really nervous, and I normally never get nervous on flights."
Pros: "Flights on time. Pleasant staff. Seats more comfortable than on many planes."
Cons: "Why the hell would you sell a flight with a 40 minute transfer between a domestic and international flight that were in different terminals?! The only reason I made it was because the airport crew was great in helping me get through the airport quickly. And the only reason my luggage made it on time was because my flight was delayed for two hours."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "I hit the side of my foot on a sharp piece if metal that was exposed on the right side of my seat. I bled and took pictures"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was cancelled and I was in first class. I was rebooked on delta in coach and united would not book me for first class."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "It was good. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 4 times...but I was kept updated."
Pros: "The guys in business class had it together! Wow! Totally felt like a special guest."
Cons: "Worst airline and customer service in the world."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats r too small"
Pros: "Flight left on time! No problem in OHare with transferring planes. Next flight also on time."
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: "All good"
Pros: "Delayed because of weather maintenance and people"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Cons: "they canceled the flight and put us on american airlines wich was terrible"
Cons: "Flight was delayed until the next morning because of weather"
Pros: "Nothing what so ever!!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING..........I paid to fly ANA not god damn UNITED!!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was orderly, crew was reasonably nice."
Cons: "Comfort, food and entertainment (extra $$) is very mediocre."
Cons: "Polaris class - the configuration felt like a military transport. The business class configuration was like a pig sty.... bad bad. Seats facing backward..... but the look was like a crowded economy with flat beds. Looked like a college dorm. I've sworn never to fly United ever. I'll pay $2000 extra to avoid legs where they are flying. Food - flushable. Don't offer vegetarian food if you can't prepare it. I'll carry some Taco Bell. Horrendous. Service excellent, courteous people and prompt attention."
Cons: "The flight got delayed and we were told it was "basically cancelled" so we got on a different flight out for the morning but were told we couldn't get a hotel voucher because we volunteered to get off the flight. Very disappointed, will never fly united again. The flight ended up getting cancelled 5 minutes after we "volunteered" to get a different flight too. Luckily we were able to get onto a different airline who helped us out. United dropped the ball big time."
Cons: "There was a delay with the flight. I wish there had been earlier communication about what was going on, i.e. Why it was delayed, how long will the delay be."
Cons: "Plane didn't leave until 2.5 hours after expected departure time and we never got an actual reason why. This also made me miss my connecting flight so I had to spend an additional 6 hours in the airport waiting."
Cons: "My flight out of traverse city was cancelled but I rebooked on a different airlines through united to be able to get to my destination in time for an event that day. It was a long process but I made it and really appreciated all the work the agent on the phone did for me. When I arrived at the airport they had my resvervation but no ticket... luckily we worked it out"
Pros: "The staff on this plane was friendly. There was room to stretch"
Cons: "We Weren't offered any drinks"
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Pros: "Before boarding the attention was very good"
Cons: "After boarding the seats were broken, there was no entertainment and the food was next to nothing"
Pros: "Efficient, professional and speedy service"
Cons: "Our flight home we couldn't land in Chicago due to storms and diverted to Madison. Sat on Tarmac 2 hours and some passengers from Madison allowed to end journey there. We had to wait for that approval and again had to wait for their luggage to be removed from the plane. My opinion is let them disembark but not the luggage. It was too long to be in that plane"
Pros: "Bad good, good service but 5 hours delay"
Cons: "The airplane food and the delay in Chicago"
Pros: "The staff was pleasant tho"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Chicago due to my first flight being delayed an hour, which in turn forced me to stay overnight because the next available flight wasn't until the next day"
Pros: "The onboard crew was lovely, I especially appreciated them asking those who were not transferring to another plane to wait until those who were got off as we were 45 minutes late"
Cons: "The male gate agent in pittsburgh was the rudest and least helpful person I have every met in all my travels. When flight was delayed for weather reasons, and looking like we might not connect in ORD he could only say 'call united'"
Pros: "Crew took special care of my guitar -- much appreciated."
Cons: "Small plane. Kept bumping my head when I got up."
Cons: "Delayed Three hours because Plane wouldn't start."
Pros: "friendly crew. speedy, reliable flight"
Cons: "insufficient overhead storage. could not accommodate the one carry-on and one personal item room for all passengers."
Cons: "There is nothing more disappointing than having your flight delayed after a long week when all you want to do is get home to be with family."
Pros: "The crew worked furiously to get everyone her drink & snack. Boarding sequence was orderly."
Cons: "Most of the time, the weak link is in check-in. For CLE-ORD, too many huge personal bags & carry-ons slipped thru the process resulting in takeoff delay as the staff checked for overhead cabin space back & forth. Inside the jet, the crew had to look for cabin space, rearrange ridiculously large bags...in order to fit my backpack. More delay. Some "personal" items were larger than most carryons."
Pros: "They had movies you could watch, for a price"
Cons: "I think united pays it's staff to be unnecessarily rude. It's so much rudeness that is almost ridiculous. Their demands, censure and dismissals of customers would make you think that you are their servants instead of customers."
Cons: "During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter."
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Cons: "My itinerary had to completely change."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Pros: "The crew was the most polite, calm and reassuring crew I've ever come across. When faced with the mounting frustrations of a cabin full of delayed passengers, these guys were smooth as silk. Bravo!"
Cons: "Being grounded due to weather is unfortunate, but the team did so well in managing expectations, it's hard to be mad."
Cons: "Grant flight , i flew with my daughter in business class the service was very good , food was great , missed watching direct tv as the Olympic Games was going on , but over top notch"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Pros: "Was nice"
Pros: "When l got to airport I was advised my flight had been canceled. Rerouted on United airlines thru Washington Dulles. Waited on Tarmac 2 1/2 hours due to bad weather, etherwise everything was good."
Pros: "I liked when I got home 12 plus hours later than I was supposed to!"
Cons: "The three canceled flights and 7 delays that I was out through were awful!"
Cons: "We got on board, waited 20 minutes. Capt said it was a bad reverser, and we were waiting on paperwork for 15 minutes. Long story short, they make us leave the plane after 2.5 hours. Then we wait in the airport for another 2.5 hours. I missed my connection and spent 10 hours in Chicago."
Cons: "The seats on the flight from LAX to ORD are built for people who are under 6' tall. You need to disclose the fact that your seats cannot accomodate a person who is 6'2" and 200 lbs. or you will need to accept medical responsibility for the damage done to a persons musculoskeketal system."
