Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."

Pros: "The agents in the air were a lot more understanding and at least apologized."
Cons: "I understand if we need to check bags because its full but when iy is not full but you demand I check it anyway all you are doing is adding travel time to my trip. Also we needed things in our bags that we otherwise would have had. Not the best customer service at the gate."

We asked the attendant at the gate desk if there was any chance that the rest of us on standby could be seated together... HE UPGRADED OUR WHOLE GROUP TO COMFORT and allowed us to all sit with each other. Greatest flight experience I've had and such great staff with Delta. Will fly Delta going forward whenever I have a a chance (flew Southwest the rest of our trip - service, cleanliness, friendliness didn't compare)."

Pros: "Outside my issues, everything else was quite pleased"
Cons: "I was charged twice for my seat. Purchase flight and I chose my seat. Both charges were separate. Once I made it to the airport I was charged again for the seat. Really confused with this matter. One ticket agent was anything but unpleasant, I am disable and I had to load my luggage on the ramp. Very unprofessional. Those two situations sad"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Cramped seats; no on-flight entertainment. Boarding was unorganized. Overhead bins packed to overflowing."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Then we all were told to re-ticket at customer service. Waited on the line for 2 hours to get a stand by ticket for the next flight. Luckily I was the second from the last that got the seat, or else I would have to wait for the next flight which would take even longer than just drive to Vegas myself. I asked customer service to accommodate me with some food coupon since I had to wait for the next flights...they said they don't have that kind of accommodation, really?!!!"
Pros: "The crew was nice enough , app updates are nice"
Cons: "To many technical issues with this airline , everytime for the last 2 years there's a mechanical problem or issue with a plane blocking runway . Honestly I've never been on time with an American Airlines flight . I could have taken a bus and gotten to my destination faster, communication is poor , had to walk from terminal 4 to 6 because they have gates at both but didn't post the correct terminal to my ticket , so I walked from 4 to 6 ... Then the delay made me walk back to 4 because of a gate change . Then we waited on the plane for another half hour . All in all its not really the staff but more so the actual operation of the airline that I'm not willing to work with anymore ."

Pros: "Better than on time Smooth sailing through south bend airport!"
Cons: "Just have to remember thrift airline No seat going back"

Cons: "Old plane with fixed seats with very limited leg room which were not comfortable- broken window shades, scratched windows, & rattles everywhere made for a long flight. Crew was ok, I would fly again if the price was enough of a savings"
Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"
Pros: "I did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late. They made us board then unboard the plane, change gates. Then the return flight was posponed from 9pm to 3am departure. They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extI did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late.

Cons: "High baggage fees. Airplane sat for 30 min after boarding for fueling and some type of technical specifications. Seats don't recline."
Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"
Cons: "First they delayed the flight and then they cancelled the day of and I had to book a whole new flight for the day which was costly. I will never recommend that airline to anyone and I wanted to like it since I looked at their website and it looked very military friendly, but it was just disappointing"
Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."

Cons: "Not to be helped, but was a bit bumpy."
Cons: "Literally had to pay for every little thing that is usually included in other airline tickets."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled - trip had to be completely rearranged."
Pros: "The price of the flight was cheap, but i know why. You ended up paying for your carry on luggage, ypu pay for seat assignment if you want to guarentee sitting with you party, you pay for soda. My flight was 1.5 hours late, due to mechanical problem. Plane was janky and it felt like it STILL needed repairs."
Cons: "Low airfare."
Pros: "The price and the nonstop flight."
Cons: "6+ hour delays Plane looked to be in sad shape, paint peeling, looked bolted together from spare parts. Strange Air Conditioning issues mid-flight that turned the plane into a walk-in freezer. upon landing our entire flights bags were abandoned and there wasn't a single Allegiant representative in the airport to communicate with the airport baggage people. After 1.5 hour wait our bags were finally offloaded onto the baggage claim by an airport employee not normally tasked with the job. Allegiant was paged over and over with no response. I will NEVER fly Allegiant again."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very respectful and courteous."

Pros: "GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR A FIRST TIME FLYER"
Cons: "They overcharge for bags and their weight limit is only 40 pounds. They leave the desk and hour before take off which doesn't help people who are running late. They charge you to print out your boarding pass. They don't even send the boarding pass through email, you have to download the app. Overall horrible customer service. When call for customer service you can't even get a human representative. I missed my flight and they didn't even have another flight to to accommodate me to get to my destination and no one at the front desk to talk to."
Cons: "Muy mal aerolínea"
Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."

Pros: "Good on the price."
Cons: "Plane was delayed, but wasn't the airlines fault just bad weather. Didn't like that I was charged for a carry-on bag, those should be free."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Then once aboard, the seats were hard and I could feel the metal pieces through the seat and the back rest for the entire 4 hour flight. The flight attendant wasn't plesant either. She asked if I wanted anything to eat or drink and when I asked her what she had, she proceeded to point to the magazine and told me to look there. Don't want to fly Allegiant again."
Pros: "Promotions (match play and freebies) for joining players clubs at Golden Gate and El Cortez by showing boarding pass. Price of the flight was reasonable."
Cons: "Underseat stowage for window seats was very narrow on the plane we flew. Seat and back-of-seat storage still had leftovers from last flyer (trail mix). Very minor issues for an otherwise good flight."
Pros: "Everything flowed nicely no hang ups"
Pros: "I mean what to you expect from an America carrier in economy"
Cons: "First class no food they intended to give boicher for 20$ to buy food...shame on United"
Cons: "Major delays. No service."
Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I missed my flight due to a nonsense delay from Charlotte. Arrived at the gate 1 minute after scheduled take off and the plane was gone. Not even an attempt to waiting as I ran, 5 months pregnant, through the airport. I was rebooked to arrive in Las Vegas at midnight. 12 hours after the original time. I bought a flight from Southwest. I will never fly united again"
Pros: "Crew was nice, did their best to help."
Cons: "14 hours late"
Pros: "Entertainment is too hard with Direct TV"
Pros: "I know it's not the crews fault for the delay, but everything was just truly horrendous. I was a little hesitant to fly United after their scandal, but now I know that I should not have. After a 2+ hour delay, I had to pay $60 at the gate to check a CARRY-ON that I had already asked about at the baggage drop at the beginning of that dreadful day. They assured me that it would be no problem, and foolish me, I actually believed them, so instead of paying $25 to check it ahead of time, I got screwed for $60. For a close to 6 hour flight, a meal should be provided. Entertainment was free because of the fiasco, but normally it's $7.99 which is ridiculous. Lastly, the leg room was really nonexistent. Truly the worst experience I've ever had flying, and I've flown plenty of airlines, both domestic and international. I definitely think my return trip back to Jersey will be my last time flying United."
Cons: "Refer to the aforementioned post outlining everything I did not like about this absolute trip from hell. Very disappointing to experience that and it really started the trip out on a sour note. Hopefully it gets better before I have to get back on another United plane back home."
Cons: "Very poor entertainment"
Cons: "On board service!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "I paid for the internet that never worked. I couldn't watch a movie or TV either. It was t just me, a lot of people around me had the same issue."
Cons: "While going inside the flight they told me there is no room for Carryon and gave me ticket to book the luggage. When I went inside the Flight there is lot of room to carryon's, why they have to lie this BS."
Pros: "It was nice. We were able to watch TV which made it go by quickly. Everyone was very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight, but not to long"
Pros: "The flight attendant was really Nice"
Cons: "The agent at the gate were not helpful, we somehow got seats at opposite ends of the plane. Rowm17 and row 40."
Pros: "The flight overall was great, easy to board and de-board, and a smooth process from start to finish."
Cons: "Connecting to the in-flight wi-fi to watch movies and tv shows was nearly impossible."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable and no leg room"
Cons: "Crew not responsive to needs of allergic passengers. As has previously occurred, gate staff chose not to re-seat allergic children with their parents. We were forced to ask fellow passengers if they would swap seats so we could sit next to our allergic children."
Pros: "I would like to start by saying that we had the best price ever and the service was exelente everyone that was working on the United plane were really attentive and friendly. Our flight was on time and we also got there couples of minutes early. Thank you United for also wishing me a happy birthday."
Cons: "There was really nothing negative that I can say. Other than loud snores that were coming from the person seating behind me. But overall excellent service by United"
Pros: "Great deal and not cheap like spirit..."
Cons: "Plane was too small"
Cons: "It was hot on the plane. Miserable."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to Vegas!!!"
Cons: "Flight uncomfortable the staff wasn't all that pleasant nor attentive..."
Cons: "Boarding experience was terrible. Our flight was delayed by an hour and a half due to maintenance. On top of that, when we finally boarded, my ticket was scanned and the flight attendant said I didn't have a seat, even though I selected a seat when I purchased my ticket online and checked-in the day before my flight. I was boarding Group 3 out 5, but they made me wait for everyone else to get on the plane until they could let me on to find an empty seat for me. In addition, they were rude to me about it, like it was my fault that there was not a seat available for me. I was grateful I was able to have a seat since I wanted to get to Las Vegas as soon as possible after the delay, but it should be something that's expected when you purchase a plane ticket..."
Pros: "Gate agents were very friendly and helpful. I appreciate the extra effort made."
Cons: "It's shady to accept payments for the tv's for a less than one hour long travel time. No one expects entertainment on a short flight, but when the plane comes with it, it would go a long way to override the required payment. Especially on a delayed flight on the first night of the NCAA tournament. Nickel and diming is TACKY in general, but especially from a huge company that really has price gouged the tv access to begin with."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Two and a half hour delay. We sat on the plane for over an hour with no information at all for the vast majority of our delay. No apologies, nothing. Only text message updates let me know that the departure time was being pushed back over, and over again."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Cons: "The way the upper back and headrest of the seat was shaped made it very hard to be comfortable when sleeping (this was a red eye flight I took, so the entire flight was sleeping). The lighting in the cabin was also not as dim as I've seen on other flights that are clearly overnight flights - it was much too bright."
Cons: "the first flight was delayed and i arrived at the destination 8 hours after the scheduled time and completely missed the appointment. Very disappointed."
Pros: "i liked the set up and how the seats had the tv in the back of them ."
Cons: "no complaints."
Cons: "The WiFi entertainment didn't work."
Pros: "comfortable and room for me and carry on"
Cons: "we boarded late. we were told that unless we were ready for take off in 6 minutes we would have to wait 3 hours due to ATC. It created an unnecessary level of worry on the plane. And...avoidable: we could have loaded on time rather than starting boarding at about 11:20 a.m. for this 1137 flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "I sat in the very rear where the seat does not recline. I have a metal rod in my leg and it was incredibly uncomfortable also there was a party of about 30 elder Chinese seated next to me and in front and they were incredibly rude and loud"
Pros: "This flight was on time, crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Smooth and quick flight"
Cons: "Big empty plane, wouldn't let anyone move to the exit rows. They were all empty. Lady said, we have to charge you $75 to sit there. Really? 10- years ago they raised their prices because of fuel. Now barrels of oil are 31 bucks that's 70 bucks cheaper than before. Shouldn't the airlines lower their prices. If you don't want all the charges fly Southwest!!"
Cons: "Rude all way around. One person was left at airport for 6hr's for wedding party"
Pros: "United employees in general are great and I'm comfortable with the airline."
Cons: "Boarding area at Newark is way too small and uncomfortable. Very poor planning at that particular gate for such full flights. There was a delay for fixing a jump seat which is understandable. But there was never any wifi that worked so couldn't watch anything on your device and the outlets to plug in your phone to charge was loose and barely worked. Not just my outlet but other passengers. Very disappointing for a five hour flight."
Pros: "Nice crew guy"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Overflowing urine soaked bathroom garbage. Incredibly tight seats. Not even peanuts provided."
Pros: "My flight back I was on the plane almost 5 hours because of a maintenance issue. My flight was cancelled abs then put in abother at 6a. Had to lose a day at work. Horrible"
Pros: "No issues. Quick and painless."
Cons: "2 hr behind schecduel"
Pros: "I liked all the free games I was able to play. The time seemed to pass by"
Cons: "I didn't like that this wasn't supposed to be my original flight."
Pros: "Flight crew on this flight was very friendly and professional. Plane was clean and on time."
Cons: "That my clothes still had vomet and smelled bad from last flight. Raleigh to Houston."
Pros: "Love the flight crew and . TVs on flight."
Cons: "The way the plane is borded makes no sense to me."
Pros: "The first ticket agent switched my flight to a non- stop flight when it became apparent I would not make the connecting flight in Las Vegas due to aircraft delay."
Cons: "The alternate flight had 5 gate changes!!! And was delayed over 3 hours ..."
Pros: "Most of the flight staff was awesome! TV and food were great. Flight landed early."
Cons: "There was one flight attendant with long hair that was very rude to myself and the cabin members and kept physically touching and kicking people. At one point she was reaching around in my lap, instead of just asking me for what she needed. It was creepy and rude, i can't believe her fellow staff memebers didn't say anything. So gross."
Pros: "I got a whole exit row to myself. We boarded quickly & took off on time & arrived early."
Cons: "There are no snacks & they ran out of time to serve everyone a drink."
Pros: "All the United flights I was on were newer planes and had larger seats, loved that"
Cons: "Wish the seats were a little bit wider"
