Cons: "They charge you for everything: sitting in an aisle or window seat ($15); checking one piece of luggage ($25); for food, even on a five hour flight, save for complementary snacks like a granola bar or pretzels. I paid $11 for a tiny sandwich (it fit in the palm of my already small hands). I will definitely get good at the airport next time. It may be just as expensive, but at least it will be filling."

The landing didn't even feel as though we were speeding...one of the best flights I've ever had (Jessica England) thank you!"
Cons: "Food options, early morning flights I get you're not going to have real food, but can there be an option to purchase a bagel with cream cheese or croissant, something other than a snack box. I understand the flight is under 3 hours so certain foods aren't available but Delta you upgraded everything else.

Cons: "The flight was delayed with no explanation"

Cons: "lie-flat seat was broken and would only recline, so didn't really get what I paid for. I wasn't the only person with the problem, as 2 other seats were the same. MEX airport desperate need renovation. It looks like something from the 60's that hasn't been maintained well. Not up to standard for a country's Capital City."

Please call me to get the full detail @ 954-501-5998 or email: email@example.com"
Cons: "Ticket counter employee at Miami international airport are very rude and unprofessional."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "very uncomfortable and tight seating. Almost impossible to eat with a passenger sitting next to you. No salt, pepper or butter with food. Dried out tasteless, inedible bun served with meal. Cabin crew a little indifferent."
Pros: "The comfort level on Aeromexico's planes to Mexico City and beyond is beyond belief, in this age of shrinking passenger space. In an ordinary ("back of the bus") seat in coach there was more than ample legroom for a more-than-six-footer, and row 28 has two windows to look out at the scenery aft of the wings. And food was even provided at no extra charge! In this situation there certainly was no need to purchase at an additional cost whatever Aeromexico calls its "premium economy" seating."
Cons: "The entertainment system is limited --- there are no games on the seat-back installed machinery. In addition, the earphones provided are only ear-buds, which don't work well in my ears. (I prefer the miniature headphones other airlines provide.) The volume controls were also poorly scaled. The lowest three levels of volume weren't enough to even hear a single sound, the next level up was a little soft or quiet and the highest level far to loud to preserve a listener's hearing."
Cons: "audio very poor on movies (could not understand words)"
Pros: "Everything was great!!!"
Cons: "nothing to comment."
Pros: "The flight was not packed and they serves lunch."
Pros: "Selection of Mexican Movies"

Cons: "Food. Scarce and starchy"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and no one from Aeromexico wants to help."
Cons: "Food, entertainment and space"
Cons: "Gate assignment was not released until 15 minutes before flight. Flight was delayed one hour. Then it was delayed on run way 45 minutes."
Pros: "I was running late because I left the airport on my layover, and despite showing up after everyone boarded they still let me on."
Pros: "We did not encounter any glitches on our flight from Guadalajara to Tijuana. The staff at Aeromexico were fantastic and attentive."
Cons: "I had purchased a ticket to fly from Puerto Escondido to Mexico City on Thursday, November 24. When I arrived at the airport, I came to an airport that was "shutdown". According to a few people I spoke to, it was because of a protest. I was not emailed or notified that I was wasting my time and money trying getting to an airport that wasn't flying out any planes that day. I was very distraught and disappointed because I am a foreigner and there was no representative front the airport or airline that this was happening and what's are the next steps I should take to get on the next plane back to United States. I spent hours and hours calling Aeromar about rebooking my flight for tomorrow so I can get out of this city. It was a nightmare on the phone because it was like the employees were trained not to help. I was told it wasn't their fault, and I need to call aero Mexico to get this straightened out. Not one employee from the many I spoke to consistently throughout the day tried to rebook my flight. They wanted me to pay for another flight which is absolutely ridiculous. I missed my flight because of some protest, something not in my control, and i kept being told too bad. I did not get offfere one solution by your staff. I was left to figure what I was going to do by myself. I didn't leave Puerto Escondido until 24 hours after I was suppose to and it was not by the help of your staff. Because of this, I will highly consider not buying tickets from this airline of their is any other option because it was an awful experience. One of He aero Mexico employees told me to stop acting childish because I was upset about missing my flight for reasons i didn't control. The customer service for aero Mexico was worse then aeromar. They kept blaming aero mar and kept saying they need to figure everything out, yet these two airline work together. Aero Mexico is the one that helps get the flight to other smaller cities. All around I had a miserable day and not one person I called from aero Mexico, like aero mar helped me or offered a solution."
Pros: "From the boarding process all the way to arrival it was a great experience overall. Brand new planes with free up to date movies. The economy seats truly recline (to what i was very surprised) and the food was pretty good."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Missed connection No reebooking done by klm no hotel voucher no taxi voucher very bad ground service in MEX"
Pros: "The entertainment system... Although had my own.. The screen was large and selection was good from what I saw around me."

Pros: "Spacious seats"
Pros: "Different movie options"
Cons: "- Flight was late. They are always late. - At arrival in Cancun, the purser's announcement contains wrong local time. They announce 11:20 pm instead of 10:20 pm. Is it not supposed that they must inform correctly this important details?"

Cons: "Better customer service at the gate."
Pros: "On time with a very pleasant crew."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Crew ran out of toilet paper in one bathroom with over an hour left on the flight. It seemed like they just didn’t care to replace it and said they were out-either way, not a good look. Plus tiny screens and tiny seats."
Pros: "We finally got to Madison"
Cons: "There were 5 delays, with no explanations given. When the plane finally took off, after the 5 delays, it made it to Madison and sat on the runway for another hour because there was only one gate operating. In addition, when the plane was in Charlotte we were told that the cleaning crew was working on it, and when we boarded the plane was filthy; trash on the seats, on the floor, and in the pouches. American should be really embarrassed at how far it has fallen."
Pros: "Extremely friendly and professional. Assets to your Airline."
Pros: "this flight was canceled!"
Cons: "Chicago to Venice flight was amazing. We were in premium economy, although the seats were larger it was hard to sleep in them, we all felt it needed some back support in order to sleep better. Crew was fantastic, would fly AA again internationally"
Cons: "Leave on time! On this round trip there were 4 segments and 3 of the 4 flights were late!"
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "No customs forms on board. Big inconveny"
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Pros: "I really like that they free inflight WiFi and entertainment. The seats are little more comfortable than other airlines. The service was great too."

Cons: "Just the weather — so nothing anyone can control"
Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac when we landed for 20 mins for a reason not really made clear. The captain said that the alley was blocked but didn’t really keep us informed other wise."
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."

Pros: "We didn’t crash"

Cons: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"
Cons: "Do you even look at what happens after we pay for your services?"
Pros: "Rarely do I find the airline food excellent, or even good. But the Pasta dish on the Amsterdam-to-Philly flight that is what I experienced, absolutely delicious."
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and pleasant"
Cons: "No IFE, bug not a big deal I had my own."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"

Cons: "The yougurt splashe all over my shirt when I opened it, too much pressure I guess. No liquor !"
Cons: "Nickel and dimed. Only one checked bag on an international flight? Terrible food. Outdated entertainment system."
Pros: "Great experience! Entertainment was up to par. Had plenty of up to date and unreleased content. Seats are much more comfortable now as well. Service was great too! As a nearly 40 year old man they allowed me to see the cockpit and that was the first time I was ever offered in my life. Thank you!!"
Cons: "Lack of a decent snack besides pretzels..."
Pros: "Although the ticket was expensive but the server was very great, both British Airways and America Airlines were amazing. one of the best services i have ever enjoyed in my life."
Cons: "The airline cost for travelling to UK should be a little bit modest, I believe the services was amazing I think the pricing was very hight. Thank you and I hope you can work very well on getting the best deal for your customers like me always. Regards Ben"
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
Cons: "Can not check in online!"
Cons: "Food was the worst of any plane I've ever taken"

Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline."

Pros: "Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops."
Cons: "No issues."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."

Pros: "Crew was good. Relatively quick flight. Plane was not crowded, up to date plane."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and big enough for large people. That crew and flight were on time and pleasant."

Cons: "I didn’t like being bumped off my flight and being placed on a later flight in coach section. No refund for lesser service."
Cons: "United made me check my carry-on and would not transfer , so I had to wait for it and missed my connecting flight. Then I rebooked on a later flight which was cancelled due to weather. So needless to say I did not get to Ottawa and had to purchase a hotel room in Newark. United is telling me I may not get on another flight until tomorrow night. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "Eventually got to Chicago"
Cons: "Missed my connection"
Pros: "The flights were on time"
Cons: "Packed together like animals on the way to the slaughterhouse for a 6 hour flight. And they charge for the tiny screen entertainment. They will happily allow you to swipe your credit card. Fly Jet Blue if you can- extra space between seats, free entertainment, comfortable flights."

Cons: "There were free movies, tv shows etc but you had to download the app prior to take off which we were not aware of until sitting on the plane. It would have been helpful to know that in advance."
Pros: "The flight attendant was trying to be accommodating. I and other passsengers bumped our heads when getting into seats. Can we say SMALL plane?"
Pros: "Arrived to destination 30min early! Boarded and took off exactlymon time!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything went perfectly smooth"
Cons: "The united staff kept skipping the lines to drop off the bags. They didn't care when multiple people in line said they were skipping people. After paying once for my checked bag they tried to make me pay again. Asked to see in writing what they were trying to explain and the manager couldn't do it. They never gave me my ticket stub for my checked bag. So if it hadn't arrived I wouldn't have had anyway to find it. Very disappointing staff in SFO. Seemed aa if no one at SFO was happy to be working there or even worse didnt know what to do most of the time. VERY different than the DEN united experience."
Cons: "Very early in the morning We had to drive to Chicago to catch our flight to Sarasota. (Since our flight was delayed over 2.5 hrs) So since our car was in Chicago, we did NOT take the flight to Peoria."
Pros: "the crew on the flight, so nice and funny"
Cons: "the time it took to board and take flight"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly, knowledgeable, available. Flight was ahead of schedule."

Cons: "Departure was delayed somewhere between 30-45 minutes."
Pros: "I loved how easy it was to book the flight."
Cons: "I cancelled my flight within 24hrs and received no refund because I booked through priceline. However, there was no restriction or clause listed on the ticket stating that I had to cancel through priceline also. It really should not matter who I cancelled through, if I canceled within 24hrs the refund should be given. Also, the debits from my account said United as well as priceline taking me to United's web page to make the purchase. So of course one would think cancelling through United's site is appropriate. I'm very disappointed in United and will consider all other options (Airlines) before booking with them again. PS - United customer gave me the run around for 3 days knowing that it was their policy and they were the company who's keeping my money. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "The flight was packed, uncomfortable and not much to est that is healthy."
Cons: "The cabin was too hot."
Pros: "First of all, I was excited to get to Puerto Vallarta! Unfortunately, we had a delay due to a child who got sick as the plane was backing from the gate. The crew was fantastic and had paramedics load the plane to check on toddler. The family deboarded and United crew cleaned the throw up. The pilots kept the passengers informed and we proceeded with the flight. The flight attendants were fantastic, particularly the brunette attendant who remembered me from a previous flight. Best flight attendant ever!! Thank you United!!!"
Pros: "I arrived at the aurport 1 hr 20 mins before flight - plenty if time to check in and make it to gate at a small airport ad Newark is. Wanted to check in online - the United System did not allow me to. Had to wait in line - long line due to holidays. I raised my hand and asked for assistance given the impending 1 hr cut off time for check in. Was told I should go to the special assustance line. Well, guess what - that line which was meant to be express service for fliers with special situations was moving with the speed of a tortoise - slower than the general line. Only 2 flight assistants were servicing, both incredibly slow. When asked politely that I need special assistance as I was approaching the 1 hr cut iff fir checkin, the United lady yelled at me instead of speeding up her slow motion. Bottom line, I missed my flight on a tiny airport dedpite arriving 1 hr 20 mins before flight. Had to wait 14 hrs overnight at the airport to catch the next flight because the United Airlines personnel are lazy, slow, inefficient, rude and no customer oriented. Terrible service."
Cons: "Broken Restrooms"
Pros: "Not as delayed as the other United flights. Could have been worse!"
Cons: "Gate changed since earlier flight scheduled to depart at 1:30 for San Francisco was still waiting on their plane while we were ready to board at 7:20. Told to go to a different gate. That gate was for Denver but an earlier flight, too. Finally the third gate change was for the correct flight number. Lack of good communication left us and many others scrambling to find where to go."
Cons: "The flight I purchased was over booked. I had to leave a friend behind and travel on my own. I will never use United Airlines again."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight because of maintenance problems. Had to wait an extra 5 hours just to get to Las Vegas. BULLSHIT! Never again!!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "NO entertainment whatsoever unless you purchased it, $5 is expensive"
Pros: "Arrived a bit early to the destination."
Cons: "Every time the crew came by with something (more food, duty free, custom forms) (which seemed very regularly) it was announced over the intercom so it made sleeping very difficult on the 11 hour red eye flight. Other airlines will just walk by and catch your eye if you are awake. Seats were quite small as well."
Pros: "The crew very pleasant in the plane! Besides the personal before boarding the plane!"
Cons: "I didn't like the Snack (food), the entertainment...I was traveling with my 5 year old son & I ask the personal before boarding if I board after group 1&2 since I was group 4 he said no, he should've let me since I was with a toddler & I didn't mentioned my seats was on roll 11 not the middle or the back of the plane!Like seriously!!!!!"
Pros: "It was a great experience overall"
Pros: "Text and email alerts."
Cons: "Everything. We arrived 2 hours early and my daughter worked very hard to fit everything she needed into a carry on bag which was not easy. Her flight was delayed, delayed again, delayed again, and then cancelled. She was flying alone and should have received top priority and been one of the first called up to figure out how to get her to her destination. But that did not happen. She didn't know what to do at first then got in the long line of people and waited her turn. ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT HER ONLY OPTION WAS TO FLY OUT ON A LATER FLIGHT TO HOUSTON WHICH WOULD MAKE HER MISS HER CONNECTING FLIGHT ANT THEN STAY THE NIGHT ALONE IN HOUSTON AND WAIT THE ENTIRE NEXT DAY THERE UNTIL 9 THE NEXT NIGHT TO CATCH HER FINAL FLIGHT TO SALT LAKE CITY. I cannot even explain how angry and horrified I was that your airline thought that was acceptable for an unaccompanied minor! Clearly this one option that was offered to her by you was not accepted. Then she calls and a guy tells her he can get her there and is going to book her new flights.....only to get disconnected and never called her back. After that there was no one to be found at the desks for your airline. At this point I had driven back to the airport (spent hours driving and waiting) when a wonderful lady from a different airline helped my daughter out and got her on a different airline. However she had to check her bag due to her seating after all the hard work she put in to not checking her bag."
Pros: "The on board crew did a good job but didn't have much to offer us."
Cons: "No more seat back pocket. Its aolid plastic now & nothing fits. No meal service on a 4 hour flight. That's ridiculous. No check in counter. Just a sea of people fighting for kiosks to self check in. Bad enough there's no more ticket agents, they could at least have an organized line."
Cons: "We're treated like livestock!"
Pros: "To say, its been over 20 years since I've flown, everything was just fine."
Cons: "A lady with a dog on a leash was allowed on board. I do not think it was a service dog. In the gate area, the dog was encouraged to get up on the seat. The owner also walked the dog over to a couple to visit, and the couple had a large cat in a carrier. The dog owner did not see the cat in the carrier for a few minutes. Then, when she did realized it she did not move away. You could see that the dog noticed the cat and was getting excited, and proceeded to bark. I don't know why she didn't back away when she noticed the cat. On board, the dog, still on a leash, didn't stay under her feet. The owner did not hang on to the leash."
