Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."
Pros: "Comfy seats, quick service."

Pros: "Service by the Delta team"
Cons: "Seats not roomy enough"
Pros: "great service, easy to get on and off, snack options and drinks were all great"
Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"
Pros: "Service; security gate in NY close to departure gate."
Cons: "Arrival Gate in San Jose far from exit."
Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."
Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."

Pros: "The crew, food, plane, everything was excellent"
Cons: "It’s was the best flight in my life"
Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."
Pros: "As always, the crew and amenities were first rate."
Cons: "We were initially told that our flight would arrive early. Then we sat on the tarmac for a half hour before anyone could be bothered to tell us we were waiting for the plane to be de-iced."
Pros: "On time arrival"

Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "Fast and comfortable"
Cons: "No tv but understanding"
Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."
Pros: "The flight was very on-time and it reached the destination even earlier than expected."
Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"
Cons: "A flight of four hours should have decent food. Too short connection times and inconsistent restaurants in the airports often leave me very hungry. Give us real healthy food onboard."
Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."
Cons: "No trash bag in my seat for puking or bubblegum"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."

Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Product was excellent, the whole experience was amazing."
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Cons: "The boarding process after getting off the bus to get on the plane."
Cons: "Buying a ticket with connecting flight and having 2 diferent airlines combined can get wrong information to customers. I thought I had bought my ticket thru delta and turns out is was with aeromexico, delta has no weight limit on carry on luggage and aeromexico does, i received an email from delta airlines for me to check in so i look at their luggage policy on carry on and when i arrived at the airport i had to go to aeromexico counter to check in one luggage and turns out i also had to pay for my carry on luggage becouse it exceded aeromexico carry on weight policy which i didn’t fully agree but ended up paying anyways"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Excellent in-flight device. I would definitely recommend Aero Mexico to any potential patrons."
Pros: "It was clean and easy"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "El asiento Premier cómodo . Acceso a Fast Track en inmigración"
Cons: "Salón premier en terminal 2 para vuelos internacionales tiene que mejorar . Buen servicio en el avión pero no excelente cómo ha sido en otras ocasiones"
Pros: "Crew amazing, food really good, I just had a better experience because the lack of leg room, my 3 years old was hitting the next seat so the lady totally ignorant and mediocre was arguing with me."
Cons: "Change people seats when they are very picky"
Pros: "Crew was nice-"
Cons: "for a red eye they should turn the overhead screens off!"

Pros: "Entertainment on the long haul was good, no entertainment on the fight from Mexico City to La Paz"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Just a bit more room for a person that's 6'2"."
Cons: "Paying for luggage even with million Miler skyteam elite card. After paying for luggage then it didn’t come out on the belt and I had to get help to find it. Aeromexico should be avoided at all costs"
Pros: "Overall great experience. The snacks provided were good and staff was quite friendly."
Cons: "Seats were not the most comfortable"
Pros: "I love the airline, great service."
Cons: "The seats are worn out and they hurt your bottom."
Pros: "Will choose Aeromexico again! Very nice and helpful crew and staff. Appreciated that food and beverages were served."
Cons: "I actually arrived early, which turned out to be a mistake, because Aeromexico moved the gate to the farthest possible new gate location while I was away getting a sandwich, which was itself delayed. When I noticed the change, I ran to the new gate and waited 10 minutes while they talked to the boarding people, who wouldn't let me on. After several hours of bag retrieval, having to buy a new full price ticket, having my cards declined due to the price and circumstances, having to go through 2+ wrong directions for each step of the process, determining that maybe one employee in five could speak even minimal English in an international airport, I finally got on a Delta flight. In sum, won't be flying on Aeromexico in future."
Pros: "I love traveling with Aeromexico, great airline. Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "I don’t like the Aeromexico is becoming a little like Volaris when it comes to checking in. Even though you arrive at the airport 3 hours before your flight (international) you check in online, and you print out your boarding pass, you still wait in line for almost 2 hours. I hope they find a way to speed things up."
Pros: "Decent leg room , it was good"
Cons: "Baggage, in Mexico City was horrible, right here in San Jose Ca. Very good"
Cons: "I tried t change my departure day but they told me that I was not possible so I lost the flight"

Pros: "Is so quickly boarding and the service inside is very good"
Cons: "The space in to chairs... for the people big is complicated"
Pros: "Bumpy flight dirty plane hard to access terminal one for early connection. Train doesn’t open until 5 so you have to pay for a bus. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Let a dog on board that barked the entire flight."
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants."
Cons: "Seat became very uncomfortable for my back and bum. Shouldn’t it be more comfortable in Classe Premier? Also just a sandwich for meal."
Pros: "service,, nice people,, on time the best attention to everyone !!!!"
Cons: "not enough information on the website!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "No announcements for landing. I usually wouldn't complain about arriving early but my shuttle was not available for two hours so the early arrival added that time to my wait time."
Cons: "They stole about $3500 dollars from my suitcases. I called Aeromexico, but I can’t get no were. I will also not be using Kayak, until the drop Aeromexico"
Pros: "Excellent service, plus no extra cost for the carry-on."

Pros: "The service and food"
Cons: "Some crew had attitude"
Pros: "I had no problems and everything ran smooth."
Cons: "There was a 5 hour delay which caused me to miss my connection. After standing in line for 3 hours, They did not get me the same day flight and put me on a Latam air flight and asked me to take the bus to terminal 1. When I spoke to the person on Latam air they said they don’t have a ticket for me and sent me back to terminal 2 via a bus where Aeromexico desks were. I stood in another line for 3 hours! Then they told me there is no flight and they will put me on the next day flight. However they did not provide any help or accommodation for the night I had to stay in Mexico which felt very very unsafe to me."
Cons: "Air plane crew"
Cons: "Everything. The customer service was horrible. They did not honor the seat reservation and stationed my father in the back of the plane instead of the front of the plane as agreed on my reservations. They charged for baggage. The whole experience was horrible!"
Cons: "Our terminal changed the same day we left. We got off at terminal 2 in Cancun only to pay for a taxi to take us to terminal 4. Then we left 1 hour and 45 minutes late, therefore, extending the total trip."
Pros: "Not much to like in mediocre flight. Gate agents were nice and couteous."
Cons: "Mediocre flight overall. Poor customer service from crew (barking orders and very little tact during boarding). No entertainment system. Flight was delayed due to errors with airline."
Pros: "That we arrived"
Cons: "Even though they give you "linear measurements" when you check in they attempt to shove your carry-on in this "one size" box - and heaven forbid it not enter completely... there goes $50 bucks since you've already checked in your 1st bag @$25"
Pros: "They always provide food and beverages. It's great And they help you with all your questions. Great Service"
Pros: "Excellent service on the plane"
Cons: "Service in check in within Guadalajara airport"

Pros: "Plain was comfortable."
Cons: "Food again, just a bar full of sugar!"
Cons: "I don't like the services out side the airplane. El servicio es pésimo con las personas de Aeromexico, necesitan estar preparados para atención al cliente, que mal servicio, las personas son muy groseras"
Cons: "Plane and Airport smelled like a sewer. The staff/crew were extremely rude and not helpful at all. One of our bags did not make it to Houston, TX (Our home) on time."
Pros: "I booked the flight for my mother to rush to Mexico to be with her mother while in the hospital. Aeromexico did not have any reservation. So my mother had to pay for a ticket through Aeromexico. I email the company to refund me and haven't heard back."
Pros: "I appreciate getting a light dinner and the choice of being able to watch a movie."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 2 hours from the Medellin airport because of "weather conditions", however in that time I saw two other flights from two different airlines take off on time without a delay. Needless to say this was frustrating. Once aboard the flight, the crew waited until we were landing to hand out the proper migratory and customs forms.That caused a lot of anxiety among travelers who weren't familiar with the forms, causing further delays when we had to stand in line for customs and immigration in Mexico City. Many people lost connections and it was not clear by Aeromexico crew where they needed to go to get their new tickets."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Crew was nice and eficiente, flight was smooth"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight and only peanuts and drink to eat"
Cons: "Rushing from gate to gate after sitting on the tarmac for 30 minutes after not having anything to eat on the four hour flight from PHL. Not being able to get anything healthy because the layover was reduced from 40 minutes to 5. GIVE US SOME FOOD DAMMIT!"
Cons: "Confusing in LAX as to where to go for the flight"
Pros: "I didnt like anything about it"
Cons: "American knew it had a problem and never resolved it - delaying our flight by minutes every few minutes - we had 38 text messages indicating a change. In addition the crew "aged out" so we had to get a second crew - waited for that. the first plane had a mechanical, the second plane had a mechanical - more lengthy delays then finally the last plane was fine - but was again delayed by yet another hour for a total of 7 hours delay. Our compensation? Non existent."
Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "The dinner was good"
Cons: "All the flight attendants were hanging out in the back. Socializing like we were invisible. They seemed to prioritize one another over the passengers. It felt a little odd."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Customer service was friendly"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
Pros: "The customer service!"
Cons: "Eventhough, I have accumulated over 100000 points. I don't get any seat upgrades or gold status!"
Pros: "The food was fabulous!"
Pros: "Food was really good, crew members fantastic. Boarding was a little messy, a mix between anxious passengers and weak organization."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work and there was no way to solve it. It should've been checked before. It was a 9-hours flight with almost nothing to do."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was great."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "one more bag"
Pros: "Entertainment service and film variety was good"
Cons: "Seats are too small, no place for my legs"
Cons: "New plane and excellent service. The flight was on time and the crew was very servicial."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "The plane was a newer Boeing 738 plane and has AC power outlet at every seat. However I was not able to use their in-flight movie channel on my tablet since there were too many users."
Cons: "I am an Executive Platinum member and normally should get a meal even in economy. It was not offered on this flight. The crew didn't have a friendly attitude."
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"
Pros: "Entertainment package at your seat was easy to use and had a wide variety of movies, music, etc. to please anyone. Plane was new and everything worked. Arrived early!!! Captain was best attribute of the crew."
Cons: "Crew seemed to be robotic, no personality, just doing a job. Food was just OK, nothing special, but at least it was somewhat tasty."
Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."
Pros: "Very nice gate crew, efficient boarding, quick and efficient takeoff"
Cons: "Found out that a lot of Argentinians do not obey the crew rules. Before the seatbelt sign turns off they already start moving to the front of the plane. But off course is not the airline duty to teach manners."
Pros: "The Crew were outstanding and the flights were quiet and smooth. Very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "THe reading light was broken"
Pros: "We boarded on time, we sat in the exit aisle, so we have a little extra room. They offered free movies, which my husband took advantage of. Pleasant flight"
Cons: "American Airlines delayed my flight over 16 hours. Very unhappy."
Pros: "Nothing special. Horrible food (the worst in years). Cabin crew try to manage but a refurbished plane doesn't justify more than double for a substandard bussines class."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so we missed our connection. The entertainment system was down during the flight and all they did was apologized over the speaker. There was no rep waiting to help upset customers so we had to wait TWO hours in line as there were only 2 girls at the counter when there are 6 counters. They were completely unapologetic and although they set us up on another airline to fly back, the whole experience was completely unsettling. AVIANCA NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew really good"
Cons: "People at the bs as airport didn't organize everything. Lines all over the place and two flights cancelled to the same destination in less than 24 hours! Got lucky that they didn't move us onto a next flight because there was a domino effect on the flight. I stead of solving a problem for 200, they began to make problems for 600."
Pros: "I had lots of space to my self"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We were so crowded. No leg room. The lady next to me was too big for her seat so it was hot and sweaty the whole way"
Cons: "airbus A320 doesn't have power ports at seats...."
Pros: "Entertainment was not available for the latest Safari browser 10."
Pros: "Smooth, quick flight!"
Pros: "Again getting moved up to first class"
Cons: "I would have liked to know before I was already seated in Coach."
Pros: "On time, very friendly and accommodating crew!"
Cons: "My screen didn't work BA to Dallas but I didn't ask for help either!"
Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Movies. Upgraded to more spacious seat."
Cons: "Dry dry dry. Hard to sleep."
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed and ultimately cancelled. There weren't a lot of connecting flights until much later the next day, and the customer service was fair at best."
Cons: "Flight was pushed out at least 5 times before departing. Once we even boarded and were told to get off the plane after the delay became too long, "for security purposes." The pilot was completely unprofessional - he tried to make light of the situation. At first it was funny but the jokes soon got old. There was little attempt to to update as the delay kept getting longer and longer. We learned more about the delay from our phone apps than from the crew. Most idiotic and incompetent group I've ever flown with."
Pros: "the different sections of the plane made it feel smaller. Great food in flight along with the entertainment."
Cons: "it was a long flight, not enough movies to watch throughout the flight. Only dc outlets available which i wasn't prepared for"
Pros: "Right in time and crew very responsable."
Cons: "The audio for film's didn't function in many places of the plain."
Pros: "Since the merge with US Airways, it seems as though American has adopted it's ways. US Airways was my least favorite airlines therefore I am disappointed by the merge. American now charges $25 each way for a trip to the Caribbean, which was not the case in the past. No entertainment provided unless one wants to watch a Free movzie on your small cell phone screen (lets hope your phone is well charged and you remember to bring your ear buds also)."
Cons: "Lack of snack options, lack if entertainment, baggage fees, less space for comfort."
Pros: "Business class is very good"
Pros: "All fly attendants. DId a very good job"
Cons: "The little flat tv was not working properly. The plain is too old."
Pros: "Captain was like a tour guide, gave us info about what we were flying over and kept us super up to date on all info."
Cons: "Seat in front distance. Granted I'm over 6 feet tall but sucks to have to pay $50 just to be slightly comfortable. Then in the aisle getting bumped all the time with people going by. Got rammed by the flight attendant cart, wasn't very fun. Left a nice bruise on my shin."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "I always fly with LAN, did not want AA Food Small seats"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay an extra $25 to check my bag and I didn't like having to pay an extra $25 to change my seat assignment. The really hard landing in San Jose wasn't a lot of fun either. Recommend checking out other airlines before booking with American Airlines. I've taken American flights before with much the same experience. I was hoping like other airlines American's service might actually have improved - wishful thinking."
Pros: "Crew was solid and professional"
Cons: "Boarded late, took forever to get de-iced, went to runway, went back for more de-icing. Not good."
Pros: "Pretty comfortable"
Cons: "No monitors for inflight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was excellent; courteous and professional."
Cons: "More room for overhead bags so checking carry-on isn’t necessary"
Cons: "Only bathroom on the plane was closed due to issues. Plane was cold and cramped."
Pros: "The woman at the counter was helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "The experience was poor due to a flight delay that would have resulted in a missed connection. This resulted in a very negative effect because I won't be able to make an important business meeting."
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane was nice."
Cons: "No charger at seat."
Pros: "Everything was okay. No complaints as such."
Cons: "It took a while for the plane to take off after boarding.m"
Cons: "Delayed 40 minutes due to delay in inbound aircraft. Slow turning around added a second delay."
Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"
Cons: "The sit was so croweded"
Pros: "You cannot watch shows or.movis on demand. You can only watch TV movies, commercials and all"
Cons: "We weren't allowed in the Premier Lounge even though we had first class tickets. They said only international passengers."
Pros: "Customer service replaced my previous United connection with an Alaska Airlines flight that got me in earlier."
Pros: "This was a pretty typical United flight to SFO. Nice crew, nice plane, no issues."
Cons: "This is not on United, but LAX has a long way to go to reach that "wonderful airport experience." They keep broadcasting those security messages over and over and over - way too much. The airport employees, in general, are tired and jaded - very few were helpful. The terminal buses were way too few - I walked from T4 to T7 because I got tired of waiting. Not enough signage for folks not familiar with LAX"
Pros: "United Airlines team and the plaine were brilliant."
Cons: "VeRy long flight that didn’t need to be as long. Small plane. Hard landing and very quick stop where where everyone screamed."
Cons: "Had to cancel my trip due to family illness. But, not acceptable to United for a refund. And wants to charge me as much as a new ticket to save my ticket. Why penalize me for a sick relative? Unbelievable! And very disappointing."
Pros: "In flight "included wifi" is a joke. Spent 20 minutes trying to connect and the rest of the flight trying to load the "entertainment" page. Doesn't matter if you have the app, same thing happens. You're better off downloading whatever you'd like to consume prior to take off!"
Cons: "Wifi connection, pretzels, tiny beverage cups"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding process"
Cons: "power plug didn't work"
Pros: "Free World Series viewing"
Cons: "No power outlets at seat"
Cons: "I couldn’t pick my seats online. Having to take that extra step at the airport was a hassle. Also we that way I wasn’t guaranteed to be sitting with my husband."
Cons: "No movie without paying"
Cons: "I would like to have a response from United Airline , my email address is pamm. strickland @ gmail.com"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "After the gates closed, an exit light broke and the staff took over an hour to fix it. Flight delayed."
Pros: "We did not get to pick seats on this end of the flight and they had separated my husband and I. Another lady on the flight was separated from her two children. No back of the seat entertainment screens. They had Aisle screens and ran occasional movies which kept stalling and the sound would cut in and out. Boarding was a bit of a nightmare and took awhile which made up leave late however we did make up the time."
Pros: "Delayed outbound so I got to CA much later than I needed to be."
Pros: "quick boarding"
Cons: "no outlets!"
Pros: "Upgraded to extra comfort seating."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "We went through four scales showing weight complience only to be over the limit each time we got to the final check. And we were accompanied by an United person each time. The only logical reason is that the final scale shows more. They had no idea of how to treat a passager courteously You could see that they are trained to always be right and cougt with their offul reputation they were asked to be better, but they didn't know what better means. The food could not be fed to a dog. The absolute cheapest ever. Two tiniest pieces of chicken, one piece of bread and a sort of pasta sald with raisin uneatable. The service in Paris was better because United couldn't destroy it like in Ny"
Pros: "Male flight attendant was so genuinely kind to an elderly couple next to me. Female was nice as well. Seat more comfortable than last flight. Flight on time."
Cons: "Cannot connect to wifi. No entertainment. Need stronger signal. No charging spot for electronic device in my seat."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Crammed unconfortable"
Pros: "Despite the recent incident United Airlines strives for ultimate customer service. There ancillary customer amenities truly are way above any other Airline that I've experienced in The Last 5 Years. When you first class and have access to the United Club room it is truly a very comfortable experience."
Cons: "Nothing everything they did was amazing"
Pros: "Staff was wecoming and friendly"
Cons: "Couldn't even access united's flight map without paying for movies. Seats are very small, large neighbor next to me used my armrest the whole flight and generally spilled into my seat."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Your entertainment sucks everything cost so much. There is NO leg room. Your planes I think are old needs to be updated."
Pros: "great crew great flight and in flight service."
Pros: "Smooth ride and on time staff was great"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for my luggage that was really horrible they find anywhere to nickel and dime you but glad they let mine be a carry on"
Cons: "How can an airline justify not serving a meal on a 5+ hour flight? No wonder there is not a single American Airliner in the world's best airlines, service and customers are not the priority."
Cons: "The only negative was that after waiting to taxi (for almost 10 minutes), we received an announcement that it would be a little longer because they realized that the had yet to re-fuel the plane. That was somewhat alarming."
Cons: "That my flight to Seattle was delayed 4 hours, and that my return flight was delayed 1.5 hours as well."
Pros: "Online confirmation"
Cons: "My seat assignments were changed and we were at the end of the plane next to the bathroom. I know I didn't put those. I don't like the fact that you have to pay for baggage and there is no food provided other than a drink and some really poor substitute even for peanuts. Southwest at least allows you to have a free baggage. It's not the fault of the pilot but it also is very bumpy. The flight crew was fine and it's just the uncomfortable aspects of having my seat assignment changed and the extra charges for anything that makes it comfortable."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice. Made up a little time on the flight and landing was smooth."
Cons: "This is my second delayed flight on united / lufthansa in a few months (2 for 4). Horrible leg room and person in front of me had seat all of the way back so she was on my lap and I had to ask her to move up. Food just so so - carbs with carbs (pasta with cous cous). There was very little information about the flight delay (when would we be boarding, etc.)."
Pros: "Wi fi movies"
Cons: "Tiny seats. I'm 6'1" and 225. All passengers need more elbow and leg room."
Pros: "Average experience. Mostly pleasant enough."
Cons: "United changed our flight with No chance to object. Then reassigned us to separate seats. We asked to be moved next to each other. We were repeatedly and rudely dismissed 3 times, at 3 different levels, as if we were in the wrong to ask. If not for the kindness of a fellow passenger we would not have flown together. Very poor hospitality training."
Cons: "Terminals were a bit far a part"
Pros: "Nothing, worst flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Dried throw up on the floor in front of my seat.disgusting. SO MANY FLIES IN THE CABIN!!! Crew seemed like they hated their jobs, were NOT attentive. wasn't cleaned at all. Plane smelled. Charge port didn't work. Tray was extremely dirty. It was the worst flight I have ever had and is making me dread flying United back home."
Cons: "The airline is horrible.. Poor customer service"
