The third time I got s seat assigned but again, they were very rude. Won't fly delta again."

Pros: "I was afraid I my not be able to recline my chair but thankfully it worked, i was so much more confortable than the firts flight."
Cons: "to much use of plastic for the food. The planet is full of plastic. By the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. AEROMEXICO can do something about it, be part of the solution, just by changing the cups to paper cups and the forks,spoons and knifes to reusable ones."
Pros: "The warmth service that made me feel at home"

Pros: "Again food service was good."
Cons: "On this flight my husbands screen didn’t work at all. So I’m both flights we were forced to share."
Pros: "It would be nice if you could use the AeroMexico app and watch entertainment on your phone, without paying."
Cons: "There was throw up on the row in front of me and since no one on the flight before said anything it didn’t get cleaned up right so it had a smell to it."
Pros: "Appreciated the unrequested upgrade especially after sonmany years and miles travelled with AeroMexico, Delta and its Sky Team partners"
Cons: "Mexico City airport logisitcs off prior Aeromexico flight from Leon (BJX) and then again logistics onto the plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed 7 hrs and the official website never updated to reflect the change. Called customer service twice and they had no clue. The last representative advised to be at the airport at the original departure time to make sure we spoke to someone there. That showed a lack of knowledge and trustworthiness. The airports official website also didn’t reflect the delay."
Cons: "No personal entertainment. The plane was too old. No previously allowed to choose seat."
Pros: "The huevos rancheros that they served for breakfast was pretty good and our flight arrived early."
Cons: "It was awful. My original flight was scheduled to depart March 30 at 11:55. Then Aeromexico changed it to 1:35am in March 31. They refused to let me change flights when this happened. I wanted to fly standby on an earlier flight, so I called everyday for 2 weeks to confirm how many seats were left. Everyone I talked to told me I could fly standby if it was he same day as my ticket. I got to the airport and the flight attendant at check in told me “standby doesn’t exist.” When I asked how much it would be to change my ticket, she just said “very expensive.” She told me she’d have to check me out of my current flight and risk me losing my seat on that flight, because it was overbooked just to see the price for the earlier flight. I told her I’d be willing to pay up to $200 to switch to the earlier flight and she told me it was very expensive and she wouldn’t do it. I came back later that night and took my scheduled flight. I carried on my bag from SFO to MEX. On my second flight from MEX to BOG, the attendant told an older woman she had to check her bag because the overhead was going to be too full. I volunteered to check my bag instead so she could keep her bag. Then Aeromexico lost my bag. When I got to BOG, they told me I couldn’t have a voucher because it was my fault for bringing a bag that was too big. Finally they gave me $100 because the next day was Easter and I had no clothes for church. I wasted over 2 hours of my vacation at the Bogota airport while Aeromexico searched for my bag. They said they’d call as soon as they found it. No one ever called. I called and they asked “what color is your bag?” I said “red” and the attendant said they had it. It was delivered several hours after this call despite the fact that the airport is less than 20 minutes from where we are staying. I didn’t think an airline could be worse han United, but Aeromexico steals the cake."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment"
Pros: "On board service, entertainment and food was a nice surprise. Wine and beer offered free of charge with the meal, great movie selection without charge as well and very helpful crew during the boarding process. Seats in economy had plenty of leg room and space on the sides."
Cons: "Food was good and better than my experience with other airlines but still not as good as it use to be a few years ago."
Pros: "I was able to watch free movies. It was a 4-hour flight and usually, I cannot sleep the whole flight. I definitely loved that I was able to watch a movie at no charge. I made my flight feel a lot shorter than my other flights."
Cons: "The departure was not at the indicated time, I lost my connection in Mexico City. And I arrived 5 hours late to my final destination."
Pros: "I try to fly on the best airlines due to the service, however the service has gone down"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."
Pros: "Boarding ran very smoothly, nice staff. It was nice having WiFi during the flight. Very good leg space between rows"
Cons: "Food was not the best. Just one option of breakfast, it has been better. Awful, awful landing! One of the worst landings of my life and the captain said nothing about it."

Pros: "Selection of Mexican Movies"
Cons: "They should leave you peanuts even if you are sleep!! Hehehe lol"

Pros: "Everything was excellent except for the treatment in Mexico with aeromexico when registering my luggage, poor customer service."
Pros: "The crew is always kind and helpful, and notorious airplane food was actually a joy! We were fed so well, we had leftovers for later. The individual screens had a good choice of movies and music. The Dreamliner 787 was quite nice. More legroom than other planes, an abundance of bathrooms and open space to stand up for a while (and rock your cranky toddler!)"
Cons: "I had no problems with the flight at all, but it wasn't as nice as the trip down. They both said they were Dreamliner 787s but on the way down the airplane was amazing! The overhead compartments were the best, lots of head and leg room, and the electronic tinting on the windows was really cool. The return trip was on the same kind of plane but it seemed just a bit older, with less room and older window shades. Not a huge deal, just not as amazing as the other plane."
Pros: "It was long, but the airline made everything smooth for the trip"
Cons: "4 times I asked for a blanket, and finally when I put a not very nice face I get it."
Pros: "Nothing, as I was not allowed entry onto flight"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I was placed on stand by for no reason and was not accepted on the flight I had paid for"
Pros: "the food the crew"
Cons: "the tv options were freezing up at times"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours to Mexico and on our return to LAX our seats were RESOLD and reissued to other passengers and we were told we would be put on the first flight the following day! Heck no, we were not about to let that happen. Finally after multiple conversations with the "people in charge" we were able to be "accommodated" on the next flight- 6 hrs after our original flight. I called customer service for Aeromexico to submit a complaint for the awful experience, not once did they apologize for an inconvenience and make matters worse they said it was my fault my tickets had been re-issued. The customer service woman explained that "I had not paid for a seat on that flight that I had only paid for a reservation" therefor making all of this my fault. This is one of many reasons Mexico is so corrupt."
Cons: "Aviones demasiado viejos e incómodos"
Pros: "Excellent American Airlines crew the purser Lisa was very welcoming and helpful and attentive during the flight. Seamless!"
Cons: "Employees I understand that sometimes they see a lot of people and it can get overwhelming with the job but giving good attitude it’s a most."

Pros: "The plane"

Pros: "Purser Rockland Albrecht and his crew went out of their way to make our over night flight BA as comfortable as possible. Found us better seats and checked in to see that all was well on a busy flight. Service has certainly improved!"
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: "Flight was fine. Wanted to change ticket to allow more connection time between DCA and JFK and the first two sales representative sucked. I considered never flying American again. On board crew was great."
Pros: "Excellent Travel"
Pros: "On time boarding taking off and landing in Grand Rapids. Crew was very nice and let me keep my whole can of soda."
Pros: "All...mainly Luis, one of the on board flight attendants, in charge of pampering us with excelent attention, in the most minor details of food preparation , always pain attention to our needs and Confort."

Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"

Cons: "Having to wait in Chicago due to mechanical plane problems was a bunner!"
Pros: "Arrived and left on time, something that really counts!"
Cons: "I checked in in Miami airport 12 hs before leaving. I was told by the fake friendly attendsnt that our seats , my husband’s snd mine, were separated. When asked to see if wevcould bd placed together she sarcastically commented that we had bought our flight through expedia and if we had dome it directky with AA we might have been together. Shame on her comment! AA offers their flights to many companies snd I now wonder if her comment is true, which makes me consider next time I choose an airline. In Buenos Aires when We checked in something similar happened and we could not book our seats the day before bcause they were all taken . The answer was if we wanted a better seat we’d have to pay because only back seats are available in economy and AA waits forbthose whi pay first and only then they”ll give us a seat. I”ve travelled several times with AA and feel the service is not worth the money I pay for it. The food on our flight back to BA was not good st all. However , I have to point out that all my flights BA to N Y, N Y to Mia and Mia BA left on time. On the whole it was good but I believe AA cares onñy about money and I feel disappointed"
Pros: "Beautiful design n great storage"
Cons: "Hard to get out of seat unless in fully upright biz class position"
Pros: "Fast on time"
Cons: "Nothing to drink no cofffee no water"

Pros: "Service, flight experience, entertainment"
Cons: "Checkin Personal It was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "The food and entertainment were adequate, and the pilot did a good job of communicating the status of our delay."
Cons: "Takeoff was 2 hours delayed because we were waiting for the first officer. Surely this could have been anticipated and resolved earlier. The crew was inappropriately familiar with the passengers. We are not friends, and I prefer a bit of professional distance. The seats are designed for VERY tall people; my feet were swinging, as were those of everyone in my row. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."
Pros: "Flight was fine."

Cons: "Entertainment on AA is sub-par"
Pros: "all the experience"
Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."

Pros: "The cordial treatment by the crew members"
Cons: "Not enough air conditioning, it was too warm on both flights. The foid could be better"
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "I STRONGLY dislike how the airline acts as if they are the immigration and they demanded that I buy a very expensive plane ticket to show that I would be leaving Argentina within 3 months. There are so many expats in Buenos Aires and they all buy tickets in Argentina to go to Uruguay within 3 months. Upon showing the immigration of Argentina my USA passport at the entry, they have NEVER asked me for any kind of proof that I would be leaving within 3 months. At first I started to purchase a ticket to Uruguay by boat and the attendant even asked me the website of the boat because she told me that these problems come up all the time for expats going to Argentina for longer than 3 months. You are ONLY AN AIRLINE. YOU ARE NOT THE IMMIGRATION OF ARGENTINA. Having this said, I never plan to fly Avianca again."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Not on time, no entertainment system, little space"
Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"
Pros: "Great steward with fabulous sense of humor"
Cons: "Were not let off plane after landing for 20 minutes and counting because no ground staff were available to open door to gate."
Pros: "The crew on my flight was excellent. Thank you."
Pros: "It was too hot in the airplane, and we were sweating. No leg room, no screens, I asked for water and didn't get"
Pros: "Plane was nice, clean, good entertainment options, departed almost on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding process - seat upgrades should come with boarding zone upgrades. Paying extra for a seat and then boarding in last zone makes no sense to me."
Pros: "Once on the flight, everything went well."
Cons: "Real nightmare as I had booked YUL-LYS-BRU with Brussels Airlines (SN). YUL-LYS was operated with Air Canada. Came within 4 minutes of missing flight despite being at airport 3 hrs early. SN had not released ticket to Air Canada so they could not check me in. Had to call SN customer service after AC could not check me in, then wait and wait as they had to try to correct the mistake 3x before AC counter could issue boarding passes. Terrible experience going through this with 2 small kids waiting. It’s as if the two airlines’ systems don’t communicate but passenger is responsible for resolving."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and did a good job."
Cons: "The entertainment on this flight was non-existent unless you paid extra for the iPads or internet. There were no tv screens on the back of the seats, which was not very pleasant for a 9 hour flight. We tried connecting to the plane's wifi and watching movies on our phones through the Air Canada app, but the wifi was so slow that the movies never even loaded. Additionally, not every row of seats on the sides has a window, and we were in a row that had a wall instead. The plug in our row did not work either so we couldn't charge our phones with it."
Pros: "Both going and returning flights left and arrived on time. The crew were good. Boarding and unloading went fast and efficiently and bags arrived fairly quickly and not damaged."
Cons: "The rouge entertainment system didn’t work. It seems like it’s old technology that was used when only some passengers used it. Now every seat has a device trying to log in. System just can’t support the high volumn of use. It worked on the return flight but most passengers were sleeping."
Pros: "Had to emergency reschedule the trip home due to a medical emergency in the family. Explained the situation and urgency to the AC client services rep. He got my wife and I on the next flight out (and first one in) from an alternate airport (Fort Myers instead of Tampa). They waived any rescheduling charges and billed flight differential charges of under $10 each. It was very much appreciated that in the middle of or crisis, we found a friendly and helpful response from an Airline that too often has received bad reviews. In my books, you folks are #1 when it counts. Thanks so much!"
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for an hour before takeoff Cramped seats No beverage service (supposedly, because of turbulence, although other airlines have not let turbulence stop them from serving food and drink)"
Cons: "I think the air quality on the flight from Toronto to Seoul was bad. I felt really neaseous for most of that flight and thought I would be sick on the landing. the illness went away completely once I landed and I didn’t experience it on the Asiana flight from Seoul to Phuket"
Pros: "There wasn't anything that stood out that I could say I liked."
Cons: "I didn't care for the attitudes if the stage working in the Toronto airport. Things really aren't clear there for first-timers and much of the staff was acting like I should already know to do a lot of things when there weren't any clearly posted signs saying so. There is also a huge lack of organization."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class."
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "Sadly both legs of my flight were delayed . Runway issues in Vancouver. Weather issues in Calgary ."
Cons: "I thought I was getting a good deal compared to other airlines but was shocked later to learn I had to pay extra to reserve a seat. When this was added it actually cost more. No entertainment for an 8 hour international flight! Really? Only one checked bag for an international flight. I’ve experienced much better on other airlines."
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Cons: "We took off 1 hour 15 min later"
Cons: "Food was terrible seats are small"
Pros: "Not much...crew very nice"
Cons: "On the flight coming to Toronto the staff randomly choose ppl to check bags at gate...no consistency which is very frustrating Flight was delayed. On the flight got returning I arrived at airport at 730 for my 9 PM flight ....they knew it would be delayed earlier in the day but never posted it so ppl could adjust their schedules. My last 4 flights with AC have been disappointing"
Pros: "These were all LH code shares with Air Canada. Checkin and boarding at CDG 2A is the best you can do there. Only a short walk from checkin thru immigration and security to the gate. Also Air Canada checked my bag to HNL. There were US immigration and customs, small scale and quick, in Vancouver but no requirement for baggage inspection unlike awful LAX. For future trips between HNL and Europe, I am flying Air Canada via Canada."
Cons: "White wine was room temp."
Pros: "Dinner was good, breakfast was meh."
Cons: "Air temp was hot. Food came with tons of plastic wrapping."
Cons: "Boarding Zones 3-5 is always a mess"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Hour late departure. Old people travel to Sarasota, AC should consider that in boarding."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and made the trip easy."
Cons: "The boarding process was very strange. The "zone" loading makes no sense because I was at a window seat and other people had already sat down, so they had to get up so that I could go to my seat. Also the entertainment selection is very limited and poorly curated. I would recommend downloading Netflix shows on ur device before using their service."
Pros: "Everything was good with this flight - really no complaints. The staff was very friendly too!"
Cons: "Nothing - I really have nothing to complain about with this flight."
Pros: "Crew was fine, food was fine, entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, which prompted the agent in Beijing to change my connection in Vancouver to 7 hours later!!! However, when I arrived in Vancouver, I made it to the gate of my original connection hoping to get on anyway, but because the agent in Beijing changed my connection before I left, my original connection was full and I was stuck in Vancouver airport for 5-6 hours. Complete waste of my time and completely unnecessary."
Pros: "Check in agent let us check out carry on without a fee. (Plane was fully booked)"
Cons: "Air waitress wouldn't let me use the front bathroom even though the back one was blocked by the beverage cart. Flight attendants didn't answer my call button when it was on for over 20 minutes. Yes I turned it off and on again. When she finally came by she just turned it off and walked away. Just wanted a glass of water. Initially didn't serve a glass with my bottle of wine."
Pros: "Nothing, from your rude gate agents and closing the gates far too early when passengers are waiting in excessively long lines at customers to in flights systems being broken, your service is abhorrent."
Cons: "Your gate agents refusing to keep the gates open to the appropriate boarding times, you over priced food, being improsojed in our seats and no access to the toilets due to a 2 hour in flight food and beverage service. not receiving water until after 2 hours II the flight! And no second beverage offered on a 5 hour flight!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were personable and nice"
Cons: "We were towards the back of the plane and they ran out of many food selections"
Cons: "When boarding the plane in Rome, there was not rhyme or reason. Seats towards the back should have been urged to use the back stairs. Two way traffic down the aisle of a plane does not work with suitcases, backpacks, etc, in tow."
Cons: "Flight was delays from anotjer air company i had to paid 160$ to get on the next one.."
Cons: "waiting a long time for some one to take us down stairs in the wheelchair to go to wash room ,and to collect our suit cases, and there was no wheelchair at the Plane exit door we have walk half way before we get one part way again, that when we wait very long she have left me and walk down stair, until a nice lady came and take me and let me went to the washroom and get our suit cases and take us to our passenger pickup. Every thing else was good. Thank God for a safe flight to and from I love to fly with AIR CANADA CHARLES GRAY"
Pros: "Good leg room even is coach."
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "This is the third time that I flight with Air Canada and the third time that my flight got delayed. Never again!"
Cons: "The flight from Vancouver to Seattle on the 31st of July was delayed by two and a half hours, the return flight on August 5 topped that by one hour resulting in a delay of more than three and a half hours and a missed connection flight to Port Hardy. I had to stay in Vancouver over night and my husband had to pick me up in Campbell River. This meant a car drive to and back Campbell River of six hours instead of one hour to Port Hardy."
Pros: "Early boarding with kids International Toronto terminal very comfortable with plenty of free wifi charging and iPads"
Cons: "No tv did not have app for streaming , did not know when booking that TV only available on your personal device Did not want to pay $10 to rent iPad"
Pros: "They were on time and the flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats and the plane was just too small for such a long flight."
Pros: "Curtous and competent crew. Good Price Direct Flight"
Cons: "Very little perks on the flight. Flight right at dinner time and no food provided (Need to be purchased on-board. Not all choices were available). Entertainment system required to provide our own devices, but it was not possible to plug in to recharge (5 hour flight!)."
Pros: "The loading was better organized then in the past, so smoother; not as chaotic."
Cons: "No amenities offered other than a free thimble of something to drink. I'm waiting for them to charge for breathable air."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not completely full. we had a hard touchdown"
Cons: "1. These days, I have come to expect a complimentary in-flight entertainment system on international flights. This flight had nothing whatsoever. This is ok, but the customer should be warned when making the flight reservation so they can choose whether to bring an ipad along. 2. Food and service were not as good as a recent Air Canada return trip from Roma to Vancouver which had a first rate crew, food, and complimentary beer. 3. The plane was much older than the recent return trip I had and the air was much more dry."
Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Horrible smelly crampy cloth seats, awful food, they don't offer complementary wine and beer for international flights like other carriers, no tvs in the headrest. The flight crew works slower then I have ever observed in my over 200 flights. Took them 1hr 40min to serve what they called "dinner", Delta and others knocks it out in 30!!! And don't get thirsty, You'll die of dehydration before you get a drop of water. They treat ice like its gold. 2 cubes for each drink. If u ask for more u get one more cube. Lol. It was just a horrible experience! I will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "Punctuality. Take off and landing was to schedule, and the return flight was actually 20+ minutes early landing"
Cons: "Extra charges for baggage; no food whatsoever unless you bought it; staged boarding meant that when we finally were allowed on board other passengers had pinched our overhead cabin space, NOT IMPRESSED; no in flight entertainment unless you had downloaded the AC Rouge player in advance; no recharging socket for tablet devices - so you might just see half a movie anyway. If I pay a lot of money for a ticket, even if it's a budget airline, I expect more."
Cons: "To start, this flight was overbooked which I understand is a perfectly normal aspect of flying. However, the seats on this airline were so close to one another my legs were hitting the seat in front of me. I'm a thin 6' tall man, and I was uncomfortable the entire time. I've flown Air Canada many times but I've never experienced such a cramped seating experience with them. It was as if they added an extra five rows to the plane."
Pros: "Haneda is a beautiful airport and the airline staff there were great, as service generally is in Japan."
Cons: "need to devise a better boarding process--small number of zone 1 and 2 passengers, then massses in 3, 4, and 5. More zones or more thought into how to improve customer experience for all."
Pros: "That we made it there."
Cons: "Delays, old plane requiring app for entertainment, more delays, terrible low class food, the worst of any overseas flight, no drinks, though I don't drink much."
Cons: "Was a bit of a pain when I wanted to simply get off the plane in Geneva since it would be shorter, but then the plane was late, but that can't be helped"
Pros: "I liked the way they handled the rain delay. Although inconvenient, they were transparent with the process"
Cons: "The lack of certainty whether we were removed or stilling our connecting flight to delay."
Cons: "My Mon couldn't fly because I never have noticed that she needed a Canadian Visa. She came from Mexico with her American visa and the experience buying a ticket with this airline was a nightmare."
Cons: "Higher Priced seating was left empty and people were not spaced properly in the cheap seats in the back despite the extra room on board at takeoff."
Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."
Pros: "The flight was easy and quick. These small planes are actually pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Waiting for a gate in Chicago is never fun. Most people on the plane seemed to have tight connections, and I'm guessing most of us missed them. I only made mine because the next flight was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Entertainment center."
Cons: "bad food, in crazy hours. 15 hours at the airport, the worst flight of my life"
Pros: "The premium plus seats are quite nice! Excellent movie selection too."
Pros: "Entertainment and flight in general."
Cons: "The seats suck!!! Very little comfort"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Pros: "We had a two hour delay due to mechanical issues. Long time to fix it,"
Pros: "This is one of the longest flights in the world, but the flight attendants were cheerful throughout the flight. There was a good selection of movies and other entertainment in the seat back viewer."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. Lots of carbs, little protein, almost no fruits or vegetables. Not great for someone watching their weight."
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: "The process of boarding seemed very organized compared to other flights . The staff was friendly"
Cons: "I wish they had a different type of water but overall it was a good flight"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hrs late"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options for kids."
Cons: "Older plane, ageing bathrooms etc. Chairs not too comforatable and legroom limited. Staff ok, not particularly helpful or child-friendly. No headsets for kids. Adult earbuds do not work in little ears!"
Cons: "The food was really mediocre,no good."
Cons: "Lack of information from gate crew about a three-hour delay."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and comfortable seat."
Cons: "Snack was pretzels as I prefer nuts and no entertainment!"
Pros: "The pretty airline girl"
Cons: "The kid who screamed for 2 hours straight. I know this is not uniteds fault."
Pros: "Take off and landing very good"
Cons: "No UBS port to charge cel phone or tablet. The chair few reclination. The food few and so spicy"
Cons: "I missed my flight home and still in Houston, united sucks!!"
Pros: "Staff person resolved Issue quickly"
Cons: "Boarding pass From DCA-DEN did not scan. Flight attendant asked me while seated if I was JENNIFER DICKSON"
Cons: "The Capt. Lying to Us and after 40 minutes sitting on the rap being held. The Captain came on and said the delay was Dorothea baggage boys loading the plane aft heavy and incorrectly loaded they had to totally remove every bag and reload the entire baggage and move most of the bags to a forward compartment . Many passengers wanted off but they crew refused Another reason not to fly United I am cancelling my return flight an returning on another airline! United is e worse airline in business today. Do not book on United Everett Johnson Bellevue, Washington"
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: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Horrible plane, old and not comfortable at all. Little entertainment to choose from and the technology on the plane was horrible. No healthy food options, won't fly United internationally again"
Pros: "Fact easy boarding Helpful crew Really good food"
Cons: "No negatives"
Cons: "Delayed flight with no explaination, missing my gluten free meal and very rude staff who informed me I should have brought me own food. Airline staff were also joking about throwing other passengers luggage around"
Pros: "The crew was awesome!!!! You did a great job"
Cons: "I understand the weather issue that occurred in ORD, but not letting the passengers know what was going on, except for delay, delay, delay was unacceptable, even after the weather calmed down. I will never fly United, thru ORD again"
Cons: "Food, chairs, entertainment"
Cons: "I was not given an opportunity to select a seat online. Had to call back in to do do thst."
Pros: "Everyone we dealt with was unbelievably kind and helpful. They had a wheelchair at the gate and helped push my disabled brother which was such a help for my elderly parents to make their connections. When I got my parents their tickets I was very apprehensive that it might be difficult making the connections but thanks to United's wonderful service their whole experience was fantastic. In the future I will always try to book United."
Pros: "The flight overall was excellent. I was impressed the flight was on time and we arrived early. The price was great for a non stop flight - there should be more of these!"
Cons: "There is not much space in the seat and the plane was completely full, therefore, felt a little stuffy. Need more room in seat area, but understand all domestic flights are like this."
Pros: "Crew courtesy"
Cons: "Seat space No food at all Internet too expensive"
Pros: "It got me to boston, the pilot etc did a great job"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, even in Economy plus"
Pros: "Great flight. Pilot flew away from hurricane."
Pros: "My flight was early every time"
Cons: "All planes were booked fully"
Pros: "The lady helping me before boarding plan was awesome thanks enjoy your week"
Pros: "They were always very attentive to let you know about gate changes or seat changes. Which to me personally is very important. I have had very bad experiences with other airlines in the past because they did not communicate properly their gate change and I missed my flight and missed events I was flying for. Excellent job to United for communicating gate changes very well! They did not break any of my luggage and the seats were fairly comfortable. The employees were also very attentive and willing to answer any questions."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing gate wise. I did have to ask an employee what was going on but they cleared up the confusion pretty quick. I flew on a jet verses a regular plane, and it was very loud. I had my movie turned up all the way with headphones and I still could barely hear it. It wasn't the fact that I couldn't hear my movie but in general it just hurt my ears. I was sitting towards the back of the jet though so I'm assuming if I was closer to the front it wouldn't have been as bad? Overall it was still a great experience"
Cons: "We had to make a emergency landing and held us up from our destination and plans. no extra food or drink was provided despite the extra time."
Pros: "Boarded quickly"
Cons: "Sat on the plane at the gate for almost two hours. Seats were terrible,"
Cons: "I will never fly with your airline! My luggage is damaged, the flight was terrible at informing people about gate change, the food was not edible, do I need to continue. I just wont fly with your company."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, very firm, back of seat was like leaning against a piece of wood. OK for this short flight, longer flight would have been extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "The weather in CT was inclement but the pilot made up time getting to DC and the connection to Seattle arrived ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed connection, chose to go to Minneapolis and was booked on a flight that I didn't have time to get to the terminal, so was rebooked a 3rd time, missed my shuttle, have no idea where my luggage is"
Pros: "It was a smaller plane but was roomier than the jet on the next leg of our trip!"
Cons: "Temperature in the plane was way too cold!!! I didn't rate entertainment higher because we didn't use it...we read our books."
Cons: "I never took this flight since the San Francisco flight got delayed that when I got to the gate to board the Washington flight. The gates closed on my face literally. Awesome trip.! (Sarcasm included)"
Cons: "Was delete for 3 hours and bad cosumer sevice en Guadalajara"
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."
Pros: "Friendly steward, boarding staff very good , no delay"
Pros: "Very friendly and great service. Gave us drinks twice."
