Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Transfer is inconvenient."
Cons: "My flight was delayed almksr 3 hours...nothing more. It's very frustrating because the problem could have been avoided if they were more careful but oh well. I'm making this review very short compared to my others because I know that if I start on a rant, I won't stop. Trust me, I'll safe that for the phone call complaint I'll be making in a few hours..."

Pros: "Everything! Great budget price that still delivers first class service. The stopover in Doha is wonderful. Could not be more pleased!"
Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."
Cons: "Helper was literally dragging two whelchairs at a one time. Means two passengers sitting on two different whelchair was pulled by one helper. I actually want to share video with airline so they will understand what they are promissing and what they are providing to their customers."
Cons: "Poor service, didn't get to sit with rest of our party, food average, overbooked flight, no room for luggage storage."
Pros: "its a five stars trip in its services"
Pros: "We departed late and therefore missed the connection. The staff met me and made arrangement for hotel accommodations till the next available flight. No haggling was necessary. staff on ground and in air sought to be helpful. Price of ticket was very affordable. Seating comfortable."
Cons: "Comparing to Emirates airlines...Movie choices were very limited. Only 2 new movies available. Food was poor at best. This was my second trip with Qatar. First trip...my iPad was stolen from baggage. Airline have had no solution. I prefer Emirates."
Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."
Pros: "Timing n service n crew r nice n friendly"
Cons: "Older airplane"
Pros: "***You're asking me about a flight that hasn't happened yet. I'm rating my flight FROM LOS ANGELES TO DOHA, 10/23/2016, here: Flight attendants were very good, helpful, gracious. For a long flight the restrooms stayed clean."
Cons: "The food was over cooked, and lacked freshness. I had to have the same meal twice because they ran out of the omelettes. Next time I will try Emirates."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Reading lights did not power during first 40 minutes of flight. Had an aisle seat originally but after upgrading to comfort+ got bumped to a middle seat"

Pros: "The Crew on this flight was great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3+ hours and Delta kept pushing the delay out further without giving any updates as to why it was so delayed, and when I inquired at the Delta desk at the gate the woman was very rude to me as she snipped that it was a mechanical issue."
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Cons: "They were short 1 flight attendant, delayed us for 3 hours"
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"
Pros: "I liked the individual tv screens to watch the latest movies"
Cons: "The slow boarding"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Did not appreciate Aeromexico/Delta changing my flight times after I booked, giving me a more than 7 hour layover."
Pros: "This trip into Merida was amazing from start to finish. Something was lost in translation with my handicap assistance in Atlanta, but the trip was lovely nonetheless."
Pros: "Everyone was really nice and responsive."
Cons: "Seats are a little older. Not as comfortable as other flights. But not bad."
Pros: "Great to have in flight TV"
Pros: "Fast boarding, we even left early! Very kind crew. Flight was WAY shorter than it said on our itinerary!"
Cons: "No TVs and couldn’t get wifi to work. Small plane, slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me the can of Diet Coke and extra pretzels when requested. The entertainment was excellent, the TV screen in the the seats. Good choice of TV shows"
Cons: "Seats are miniscule"
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "No drinks served , could not leave our seats , 2 hr flight turned into 3 hrs"
Pros: "Planes were new and nice"
Cons: "Booked together seats were separate and kept getting emails and alerts we were bumped to standby only to call in and be told it was not the case."
Pros: "Space in seats was better than most airlines"
Cons: "That they charge for bags. It is now an industry standard, nevertheless, it's a way of stealing to customers. Airlines shouldn't charge for bags"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"

Pros: "Spacious, clean, great host and hostesses. The flight arrived at our destination 30 minutes early."
Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. I have been traveling 13 hours and am still not in London."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "Great crew. Good space on my exit row seat"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline, though it's considered a "premium" seat. No power either. Ticketing process was crazy - I was not able to get a seat assignment until 5 minutes before boarding. Why? And there was no explanation of the situation. I had to ask, multiple times, what was going on,before I was finally told that I was going to get on, but they just didn't know where. This could be handled much more clearly!"
Pros: "Attentive crew, good atmosphere, comfortable seating.(no free food so 3* but short flight so OK) Pre flight...Soo helpful, wonderful assistant. Delta vs KLM...Not so...See below:"
Cons: "Little time for plane change at Atlanta. Atlanta rail excellent but plane arrival was late and time to cross airport limited. This was especially galling as I was at MCO early enough to catch the 1hr prior flight and requested a transfer to travel with a friend. There were seats available and Delta tried to move me but KLM would not allow it????"
Pros: "Delta crews are the best in the US, very competent and they know how to take care of you."
Cons: "Flight delays. And their lousy air miles program which has become very difficult to redeem for travel. Sky miles has become very terrible. Planning to switch my loyalty program"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Confusing and chaotic boarding procedure"
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Cons: "Boarding was inefficient. Plane was packed to the last seat. No food for purchase."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant."
Cons: "Both legs of the flight were delayed, requiring long stays on the tarmac."

Cons: "My selection was not available"
Cons: "Smooth and enjoyable trip unlike the second leg to Aspen"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the cabin and bathrooms were very clean and the separation among passengers was unexpected and great"
Cons: "My flight was laid over due to weather so it may have been helpful to get a new boarding pass as we left the cancelled flight and maybe a voucher to help with hotel & food."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Waiting to board took almost 2 hours ! We were delayed so many times and sat on the plane for an hour after boarding. I was supposed to land at 6:55 and didn’t land til 9:30 and I was late for work due to poor planning. The pilot even admitted in the announcement that there was a crew problem and maintence problem. I was not happy"
Pros: "Crew was fabulous."
Cons: "Rerouted which made us late"
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times before we even boarded. Then we sat in the plane for an hour."
Cons: "Actually getting the flight I paid for. Or at least getting a one way flight, like I should've had. Arrived at my destination 4 hours late."
Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Need a polite crew"
Cons: "plane was too hot...AA needs to keep a lower temp and pump air through their plane...on a crowded flight like this was, claustrophobia set in. First time I ever experienced this."
Pros: "The pilot got us to Dallas ahead of schedule which was a big help because I was concerned about making my connecting flight. The stewardess assured me of the process and said not to worry."
Cons: "The food combination was a bit strange and we need a non spicy option. The bibimbop was good because I could control the amount of spice."
Cons: "Jammed plane. At origin we were asked to check carry on at the gate to save overhead space. Bags never made the plane. We had our stubs but when we arrived at destination or at layover none was able to help. Bag tags had been removed at origin and bags were opened to determine who they belonged to. Plus wheelchair had armrest broken off."
Cons: "Only snacks available at 5am"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and had to travel 60 miles at my expense to a different airport to get another flight same day"
Cons: "1. The music played while boarding and deboarding was not relaxing. It made me anxious and irritable. 2. The food was absolutely poor. Taste, etc 3. Poor selection of movies, etc.. 4. Poor selection of music, especially the classical channel. Won't be flying American again if I can help it."
Pros: "A cheap option to upgrade to 1st was offered that ended up being a net 0 cost upgrade for me so I took it. Comfortable on an old (but oh so nice) aircraft."
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes early to the airport but then had to sit at a remote pad so that we ended up being 5 minutes late to the gate. A short transfer was made even more difficult, and a massive waste if time and fuel sitting and waiting. Figure out your gates early and better, and move around if needed. At the very least, bring up some stairs and buses to get passengers to the terminal and then tow the aircraft in when you have a gate available."
Pros: "Plane was alright."
Cons: "Delayed departure delayed deboarsing. Extra flight time = 1 hr due to delays."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really attentive and came to our rescue. In flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Americans airlines charged me extra to guarantee that my wife and I, along with our infant daughter could sit together. Of course with this came the expectation that we would at least have more leg space. Which we did not. Go figure."
Pros: "I thought the service was great"
Cons: "I was surprised that there was only beverages served and no pretzels are peanuts like the other airlines"
Pros: "This a short flight and they only offered drinks. No entertainment was available"
Pros: "Excellent passenger service. PSA consistency performs as best of regionals."

Pros: "The overall service x"
Cons: "It was terrible. definitly not up to the standards of a first class fare."
Pros: "Crew overall was friendly. Flight took off a little early and arrived nearly an hour early."
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be rebooted for the entire plane, so no entertainment for the first hour or so. Even once working, the tactile screen did not work well and was frustrating to use. Food was OK, not great. Pasta was overcooked and dry. Fake cheddar cheese was not good."
Pros: "The selection of music and movies to watch was extensive and wide ranging. All the Star Wars movies as well as great Disney movies as well."
Cons: "Felt very rushed when eating. Once the food/drinks were dropped off, it seems right away the staff was ready to pick up and clean."
Cons: "had to take another flight, ticket agent was able to change me to a different flight on JAL. however, JAL could not access the ticket info and ticket agent would not take my payment. result was missing that flight, ticket manager told me it's my fault and tough luck no refund. American airlines told me the same, ended up losing my money for the ticket purchase. i booked another new flight with another airline direct. worst experience in my life using kayak."
Pros: "The flight was a quick 39 minutes from Chicago, the staff was friendly. Good flight."
Cons: "It's snowing!"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and very attentive. The food was excellent and served almost continuously - and free! Seats were comfortable and roomy enough to move around. Flight was not full and we were able to lie down to sleep a little."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Great crew and on time"
Cons: "Arrival G14; Departure H18 with only 35 minute layover, a really loooong walk at speed. Need tunnel from G to H or moving walkways or a "train.""
Pros: "Arrived on time !"
Cons: "We arrived on time but this is the 9th Flight in A row into PHILADELPHIA that we can’t Find an open Gate. Then we just sit and wait 15 to 30 minutes! No other airport that we travel To has this problem!"
Pros: "Movie's were good"
Cons: "American Airlines sucks at pretty much everything. The only redeeming feature, if there was one, was the staff were decent once on the plane."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "New plane and excellent service. The flight was on time and the crew was very servicial."
Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."
Pros: "The plane had a wider aisle - much appreciatedz"
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, got a seat that didn't recline :("
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Short flight times, lovely staff , food and wine ok, not so crowded so more space"
Pros: "Helpful crew"

Pros: "left early and arrived early. cabin staff was friendly"

Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the seats are to small"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "The flight was efficient and the crew were courteous."
Cons: "There isn't much to dislike, but it certainly wasn't anything extraordinary either."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Pros: "The boarding process was swift. The movie was a good one tho the scattered monitors didn't have clean images on them."
Cons: "The plane seemed one of the first ever invented so you had to pull your knees close to fit in your seat. Plus they un confirmed my baggage for some reason during the miami layover so it never made it onboard the plane. I'm now stuck in a foreign country without my clothes, products, etc. THANKS FOR THAT!! =\"
Cons: "Flight delayed for two hours and then eventually cancelled!"
Cons: "Media entertainment selection"
Cons: "The stretched 757 is a crowded cramped uncomfortable airplane."
Pros: "Everything was fine, I would probably take the flight again but nothing was above average"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more organized"
Pros: "The premium plus seats are quite nice! Excellent movie selection too."
Cons: "Flight be on time, 4 hrs late"
Pros: "It was fine. It was a short flight, so I didn't get food, or use any of the entertainment or anything like that. It was a little cramped though, but, like I said it was a short flight, so that was fine."
Cons: "I'm not sure the stewardess is really a morning person. She wasn't rude or anything, but she wasn't nice either. :)"
Cons: "Food and charging for entertainment"
Pros: "comfortable . got moved up to economy plus. enjoyed the seats in the exit row"
Cons: "we were delayed."
Pros: "More convenient tech and not so crowed"
Cons: "Middle aisle seats. Makes too much room for too many people."
Cons: "Pay for food, cold on plane entire time, everyone bundled up in blankets, jackets but staff friendly"
Pros: "All the flight crew was incredibly attentive, particularly with those with special needs. From helping them to use the facilities to getting them little extras. It was a nice thing to see - especially in a such long (14+ hrs) flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system and service carts were quite outdated. There were no visible place to charge my phone. It takes away from the strong people service."
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty much what I've come to expect on U.S. airlines--overweight, older, and sloppy in appearance. One of them looked like she had rolled out of bed ten minutes before arriving at the gate. It was the complete antithesis to the flight attendants on Hong Kong Airlines. Ah, for the good old days of air travel. Before the plane ever took off it was announced the the entertainment system on the seat back ahead of those in comfort seats was not working and wouldn't be for the duration of the flight. Having paid an additional $239 for the comfort seat in the hopes of making a 16-hour flight go by a bit faster, this was unconscionable. The food was far inferior to Hong Kong Airlines. In short, it was the trip from hell."
Pros: "Can’t think of a thing on this flight."
Cons: "Delay after delay. Took way too long for de-icing. The storage compartmemt door got stuck and I could not get my bag out. The flight attendant blamed the issue on my bag. She claimed it was too big. It was not. I have carried the bag on several flights with similar planes, the gate agent slowed it on the plane as many have, and I had no issue opening and closing other compartment as I tried a couple after maintenance retrieved my bag."
Pros: "Everything was on time and it was a good flight"
Pros: "Not much. The plane left ontimefrom SF,got toMplsontime."
Cons: "Bought a basic economy ticket: 3 emails warning about luggage restrictions - demeaning! Can't download boarding passes from own computer- must be done at airport under supervision of United staff: "have to check and see what bags you're bringing"!. Last to board! Seat assignments done at the gate; instructed to see gate attendant, who says, "Take a seat, we'll call you". Finally, in SF, gate person says,"You bought a restricted ticket, we have to watch you"! I didn't buy lousy customer service!"
Pros: "The seating was comfortable. On the Chicago keg I was seated in the middle and was not stuck with people who were too big for the seat. I noticed there was an overweight person in first class. Does United have strict policies on size?"
Cons: "Just the fourth seating group had trouble finding a place for my roller board carry on."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "No selection of drinks. They offer only wine. Also, no food for almost 10 hrs of the flight. They make you starve for food."
Pros: "Flight attendants and other crew work long, hard hours, and I appreciate them greatly, particularly those who have enough self-awareness to be honestly gracious and friendly (as opposed to plastic smiles). I did not get this young woman's name, unfortunately, but everything about her work was exemplary. Thanks!"
Cons: "Everything was just fine."
Pros: "Everything ran on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Speed of flight"
Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"
Cons: "Delayed of 5 hours without much information. Huge line to passport control By United which i have never seen before."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of the entire awful experience. The pilots let people tour the cockpit and the stewards were very accommodating considering their rules and restrictions. With so many delays, we were able to disembark the plane and come and go as we needed till we were able to finally board for takeoff."
Cons: "We all received updates every thirty minutes with a new departure time and each time we were supposed to depart, there was another delay. The first delay was caused by a seat cushion floating device not being on the plane (hour delay right there) and then for the next three and a half hours, we all were constantly being delayed due to rain. The rain was not their fault but had that cushion been properly stocked on the plane, we would have missed the storm and been on our way. A two-hour flight became an eight-hour hell. Not to mention, the plane itself smelled like a seedy bar bathroom, I had to tuck my legs underneath myself because there was absolutely no legroom, and my row mate was a belligerent drunk. Getting home at 5 am Monday morning and going straight to work was not ideal. Would have been nice to be home on the same day that my flight was scheduled."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Multiple delays, rerouted 2 times, multiple seat changes"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Chicago airport gate is so far away from other united flights I can't believe they don't provide a shuttle to it."
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Pros: "I went a different route back to Denver I drove in a vehicle do the circumstances of a friend moving back to Colorado from Michigan. So I called ahead of time and let United Airlines know to go ahead and give my seat to anybody"
Pros: "Staff was nice. We had a very informative pilot. Liked that we had the option of watching TV for free."
Cons: "my screen and some others were not working. Snacks were not good."
Pros: "United Airlines abuse of the man on Sunday is shameful and I will never fly United again!"
Cons: "I don't like how they beat and dragged that poor doctor from that flight. #fireoscarmunoz #boycottunitedairlines"
Pros: "I loved that the flight was direct from Chicago to Asheville. I will tend to fly more often without the stops."
Cons: "Plane had to have the bathroom serviced and we had to switch planes after boarding. On a positive note they found another plane for us very quickly and did not make us sit on the plane while it was repaired."
Cons: "I was delayed for 6 hrs"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"

Pros: "I usually fly spirit"
Pros: "I like the snack provided. Crew were nice but overall seemed to not enjoy their jobs."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, both to and from my destination. Nothing made me think any of my flight experience was excellent."
Cons: "Taxied on the tarmac in Chicago for almost as long as we were in the air from South Bend. Arrived too early and there was no gate. By the time we finally deplaned, my next flight was already boarding."
Pros: "Fast. On time. Great service"
Pros: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."
Cons: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."
Cons: "What food? A little snack mix. And once again, needed to get in and out with a shoe horn."
Cons: "The flight was extremely late and completely upset my travel schedule. It cost me extra money to get to my final destination on-time. The worst travel experience I have had. The airlines did not communicate AT ALL regarding the delays that they knew about."
Cons: "$8 to have any entertainment. No power available for personal entertainment."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Many open seats but I was crowded into the back with several small children directly behind me and to the side who were wiggling, screaming, crying with parents correcting, chastising and singing to them. Thank goodness the trip was just over an hour and not any longer'"
Pros: "On time and easy"
Pros: "Boarding was fast, enough overhead compartment room, loved the wifi and free inflight entertainment"
Cons: "I didn't like the crying babies on board or the little girl that kept kicking my seat , otherwise it was a great flight."

Cons: "The aircraft was extremely small. Being 6'4" it's a challenge to navigate to and from your seat. I was pleasantly surprised that I could fit in the seat."
