Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I needed extra space because of my pregnancy, but didn't realize I couldn't upgrade my seat online or at check in. I was advised to tell the Boarding attendants I needed extra space and they promptly changed my seat and let me preboard. I'm so grateful and I had a wonderful flight back home. I was also very sick, so it was a relief knowing I could rest comfortably before arriving home to my children."
Pros: "Crew was nice the flight was smooth and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."
Pros: "The plane and entertainment system was good. The cabin crew was a little slow. But all in all it was a good flight."
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft. Great crew."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Awful flight attendant that was rude in not passing a snack to us and then not handing a bottle of water to me when snacks were being stroked to the passengers. When asking her why she didn't provide us a snack she said that this is a plane and when the captain says we have to land that she doesn't have to pass out snacks. The interesting thing is that all the other passengers around us receive snacks and bottled water except us. When we were leaving the plane after it landed my mom had to stay behind while I went to the front of the plane a good wheelchair assistance. The same stewardess said why did your son leave you and my mother had to correct her and say that he went to the front to get wheelchair assistance. The lady was very rude and didn't know proper manners."
Pros: "Left on time, landed early"
Cons: "Asked a crèw member to put my bag in the overhead , didn't like his attitude,also asked him for a soda, didn't get it, got it from another attendant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "Overall, flight was great."
Cons: "The couple next to me were a little on the plus size. A little tight for my flight. But I was ok"
Cons: "Ac not working properly. Hot."
Pros: "After the long overseas flight this was quick. Nice that it included snacks and beverages."
Cons: "Had to sit on the run way a bit as we were coming in at Albany but not for very long."
Pros: "Nice plane and comfy seats"
Cons: "The stewards were not at all helpful or as friendly as most of the delta staff! I was so disappointed with their service. We had TWO delays making us arrive in SAT AT almost 2 am. Hence there were a lot of empty seats. We asked if we or even one of us could move into the …at least three empty rows…and they would not let us as they were they comfort plus section and it cost more…NO ONE WAS USING THESE SEATS!! So they let the passengers be crammed together in the rest of the plane and left numerous empty seats that could have been used! It’s was just rude. They also served drinks and never checked back to pick up the garbage. Didn’t tell us to raise our seats or put up our table trays before landing. So, as I exited the plane I handed them my garbage! I wasn’t going to be rude and leave it in the seat pocket or my seat …where I found crumbs of food on when I boarded the plane. Was just very dissatisfied with this crew!! I have been flying a lot lately using delta. I’ve had some delays but they’ve always been accommodating, this crew was not! What a shame!"
Pros: "Speedy flight"
Pros: "Quick service, good information."
Cons: "Not applicable, it was a good flight."
Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "I never received anything about my booking. I went the airport Wednesday morning not knowing if I’d actually fly out. I only had on my Kayak app a trip itinerary. Thankfully I did. In Atlanta I added my Skymiles # to my trip. Upon arrival in Mexico I rec’d a push from Delta about my trip with my Record Locator. Flying home was to depart at 8am. When I rec’d my boarding pass it stated 8:55am. While waiting at my gate Delta sent me a text at 7:30am that my flight would be leaving at 8am. That confused me. Needless to say I was suppose to arrive CVG at 3:49pm, but instead was booked on a flight departing Atlanta at 4:30pm. Plans at home had to changed for Friday evening as I was not arriving at mid-afternoon. Needless to say I’ll probably not book thru Kayak anymore."
Cons: "No individual TV. That’s hard with two little ones."
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They were attentive and very professional"
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average. The crew"
Pros: "The free TV was nice."
Cons: "A tiny bag of pretzels is a stingy snack. Aeromexico gave us a croissant with two pieces of cheese,applesauce and a square of chocolate."
Pros: "Every thing good"
Pros: "A good basic no frills flight"
Cons: "Luggage missed the flight and was delivered later that say. It is the same as happened the last time we took this flight."
Pros: "Flight was 3 hours late leaving due to frost on wings. De icing truck wouldn’t work so they waited until sunrise and parked the plane in the sun. Real hi tech solution."
Pros: "The food is delicious and there are healthy choices, the staff helped me put my carry on into the overhead bin, which was super helpful because I'm only 5ft tall"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was not that good. They had some new movies but nothing you could turn your brain off to. The selection on my second 50 minute flight with delta had more options and variety than my 14 hour korean air one..."
Pros: "Flight was nice"
Cons: "Boarding was slow because boarding is done poorly"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight left on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The flight was rough. The coffee was horrible though."
Pros: "Delta is the best airline by far."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Cons: "The boarding took a long time then when they called for the zone 3 they told us to hurry up. The steward was doing everything by hand motion. You couldn't hear what he was saying. The plane was extremely noisy and we asked what the noise was none of the crew answered. This is not the normal service that I am used to from Delta."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The wifi did not work, my seatbelt was literally broken/unattached, they had no coffee. This may seem minor to some but when you are at the airport at 4 a.m with a child you don't expect all yhese things to happen."
Pros: "They say us together (we had seats apart -- even though it stated our children are 4 & 1). They gave them wings and each an extra little snack. I felt they were supportive of us."
Cons: "Paying to check our bags!! We were forced to... too much stuff traveling with kids. It sucked to have to pay $50 when Alaska airlines saw we were struggling, they checked our carry one for free to ease our time in the airport!"
Cons: "There were extra seats to begin with and I was traveling alone with an infant. She barely slept the whole flight and I had a stuardis in a red dress who whem I asked for for a beverage made it seem like I asked for it right now. Didn't say a word Else to me until it was time to land and my daughter had just fell asleep. She told me. I had to take her out of the baby carrier. My daughter needed a diaper change and there were no places to change her. I tried to change her by the door really fast. The stuardis said no go change in a bathroom I asked which one had a changing station they said none and to just change in my lap. Plus my car seat was broke when I got it back."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and pleasant. Cabin crew was very kind."
Cons: "I flew on a 15 year old plane. After my excellent flight to LAS with AA, flying DL was a notable downgrade. No drinks and nuts/pretzels."
Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"
Pros: "Lady said she was taking the seat I paid an upgrade fee for. Crew did nothing. Said I should take her seat."
Pros: "the plane crew were nice"
Cons: "ok wont fly delta if i can avoid it"
Pros: "Service was excellent. The food was great. The in-flight entertainment was a impressive and a life saver. We will fly Delta again."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say."
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."
Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Pros: "the flight on Delta and Virgin Atlantic was nothing other than brilliant!"
Cons: "everything - service - facilities - food - amenities - an overall wonderful experience!"
Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Pros: "I like the new equipment on ATL - ABQ in first class, comfortable with good new video. Salmon dinner was quite good as well."
Cons: "Family of 6 with 3 minors. Could not sit any of us together."
Cons: "Did not allow use of exit rows to improve social distancing (those seats “not in my class of service“). Flight was crowded."
Pros: "Attendants were nice and cordial and made the flight seem like a breeze."
Cons: "Wish the plane was little bigger and not overbooked. It’s not good with people who have claustrophobia and bad anxiety."

Cons: "Hard to say...it seemed good. I would have liked complementary baggage check"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "More room"
Pros: "Great polite crew attentive to every need"
Cons: "Power sources Onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was professional and corteous."
Cons: "1. I was in seat 38 D. It was an aisle seat. There was no space to put my bag under the seat in front of me. There was some kind of box blocking where my bag would go. I barely had room for my feat. 2. There was odor coming from the bathrooms. The smell was worse before the plane took off."
Cons: "Your staff needs to utilize better communication. I scheduled the first flight of the day, and it was delayed. We were stuck on the tarmac for an hour without anyone telling us what was going on. We had to return to the gate to refuel and we left at the time we were suppose to arrive to Charlotte."
Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "Our neighbor was fun to talk to."
Cons: "We didnt make it to Aruba because our flight was delayed for 4 hours so we missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "WiFi was not gogo; entertainment system didn’t work - no audio. They rebooted it multiple times but it would not work. No compensation was offered and the entertainment in the app did not work either."
Cons: "Mobile boarding passes did not work and required us to go back to the service counter and print the tickets. Luckily we had time but this was a hassle given we were traveling with our 3 year old. The woman at the service desk quickly helped us print the passes but stated the mobile boarding passes tended to not scan. They should have told us to print the passes the first time we were at the counter if they knew the mobile passes tend to not work."
Pros: "Plane was on time, good service, main cabin extra is nice with my knees"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Flight delayed for 12 hours. Had to reschedule both flights"

Pros: "Flight attendant actually seemed to enjoy job even had genuine smile. Made that the most enjoyable flight I’ve had in awhile"
Pros: "nothing was exceptional"
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but we had a long delay because of weather"
Pros: "Flight kept being pushed back multiple times. left about 3 hrs late. Then after boarding and waiting to take off, the pilot tells us a light came on the "dash" and he has to have maintenance come to check it. That takes another 30 plus minutes. Not a good start to the morning."
Cons: "Never finding out what happened to the our original plane that was supposed to have left in the morning."
Pros: "I took my girlfriend on her first airplane ride! The flight was bumpless from wheels to wheels. The Pilots did a fantastic job! Thank you so much for a remarkable first plane trip! THEN!!!! The have Buffalo Trace Bourbon! I mean.... what else do you need ?!"
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."
Pros: "It’s a jet"
Cons: "Boarding terrible at DCA, seats cramped"
Pros: "Delayed flights. Bumped from my first class ticket. No food. Lack of adequate response from AA."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. It was Christmas so the flight was not full."
Cons: "It was a short flight, so it was fine."
Cons: "Rude crew"
Pros: "Loved entertainment system need bring wireless headset however they will handout some later in flight."

Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."
Pros: "Accommodation of letting me and my kids sit together."
Pros: "Quiet, easy to sleep on"
Cons: "Running late, but only by 30 mins. Better than it could have been!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 4 times until we were unable to make our connecting flight. We were sent home to try again tomorrow. Meanwhile other flights AA made their connections. Total bullshit. I suggest they couldn't round up a crew."
Cons: "You are kidding."
Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."
Pros: "Flight was moved from Philadelphia to Dalllas...no problem"
Cons: "scanty food from Dallas to Porltand"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and noisy flight kid behind us cried the whole trip no food no tv nowhere to charge phone no internet just bad experience overall"
Pros: "Tight isles tight seats crabby attendants sucks the life out of you. You arrive at destination feeling dead."
Cons: "Movies were ok. The food was passable, but, no place to eat it. Small trays, no place to put anything. And no sooner you get organized and situated to eat and was movie their ready to collect trash. Can I eat without choking my food......I got 8 hours to kill! Luggage was there when we arrived.....guess that was good...."
Cons: "Baggage was damaged, which required a claim to be submitted. Company policy requires me to take the damaged baggage home, empty it, and return it to the airport. The airport is 1-1/2 hours from my house. They inconvenience me by handling my baggage like an ape and then continue to inconvenience me by requiring me to go way out of my way to get it repaired. American Airlines apparently does not understand what customer service means."
Pros: "Reasonable , competitive airfare."
Cons: "Impersonal service of attendants"
Pros: "Since chek-in gate number changed two times. Outdated airplane especially for international flight. In flight meal could be better. Compare with other US airlines AA needs serious improvements in customer service."
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."
Pros: "Nice crew,very efficient."
Pros: "Everything went smooth"
Cons: "I don't think any sanitization took place in between the people who rushed off the plane and when my flight boarded."
Pros: "Crew was friendly but did not enforce wearing of masks and deplaning was chaotic to say the least with everyone pushing to get off the plane"
Cons: "Enforce the airline’s own policy of wearing masks. About 1/4 of the passengers of the waiting to get on the plane at PIE did not wear a mask in the terminal, even though it is the policy of the airport. Chaotic deplaning in BNA with all passengers rushing to the front of the plane trying to get off. Rock hard very narrow seats."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, super helpful, very friendly and understanding when it came to social distancing."
Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable, but the price is right."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "They should have let us know we would be diverted to Des Moines, and 2 hours Late to BMI before we got to the airport"
Cons: "Free beverages"
Pros: "Punta Gorda was not over-busy. So the hassle level of the pre--flight experience was way down from the norm nowadays. The flight was on time, and only mostly full, not crowded."
Cons: "Not even water free infliight is a tad chintzy. Allegiant is not responsible for this, but the seat belt sign was on most of the time. I counld wish for better weather enroute. On arrival at ALB there was not video display announcing the belt numbers fror different arriving flights. One had to just drift from belt to belt"
Cons: "Reclining seats would be great!!"
Cons: "If you dont have TSA precheck....get it...lifesaver"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "I booked two tickets at the same time through kayak and was assigned a seat not next to my son! Because the flight was fully booked there was no ability to rearrange seats."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient, the plane was really clean."
Cons: "It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, and if at least water was served (even if snacks and other drinks cost money)."
Pros: "Half empty and on time"
Pros: "Direct flight was very nice. Took off on time and arrived slightly early. Flight crew was friendly and efficient."

Pros: "Inexpensive and efficient"
Cons: "Allegiant needs to get stuff together when it comes to boarding."
Pros: "Quick direct flight that wasn't packed"
Cons: "The woman that checked my bag kept calling me "sir" and after I corrected her a second time she rolled her eyes and said "oh, I don't even look up" I am not a man. For Pete's sake pay attention."
Pros: "the crew was very welcoming. and the boarding process was fast."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable. however I can understand because of the price."
Pros: "Great crew. Good on-time flight (early, actually). Smooth boarding."
Cons: "Standard no-frills gripes. Seat is tolerable but basic, no recline. No power, zero inflight entertainment, etc etc. They won't even give you a sip of water for free, which is just absurd in my opinion. They did give me a free cup of ice... so I guess ice + time = free water..."
Pros: "The plane, the crew..."
Cons: "Seats wider"
Cons: "it was very hard to hear the stewardess"
Cons: "I cancelled this flight and somehow it doesn’t show in your records and now I cant find the cancellation.. I am not in Orlando.. last time I will use Kayak."
Pros: "timeliness of the flight professionalism of the crew immediate attention to a passenger who fainted"
Cons: "passengers were cold and there were no blankets to be offered there were no hot beverages and it was very cold. all beverages were for purchase and yet no complimentary hot coffee nor tea, even if you wanted to pay"
Cons: "The airports restaurants closed and security shut down as well. We were prisoners in the airport with only a vending machine. Unbelievable. Believe the Allegiant Air stories from 60 Minutes. The stories are true."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours."
Pros: "Getting off the bus!"
Cons: "2.00 for water! Overpriced everything! Crew was not nice. Kindness goes a long way. Not for this crew impatient and just rude to other passengers. We pay good money to ride on the horror bus!"
Pros: "Passengers were fun"
Cons: "Need entertainment"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "EVERYTHING is extra payment, even a small carry-on; water $2!!!; seating is extremely cramped"
Pros: "Pretty empty flight so we were able to change seats. Good thing because my family wasn’t sitting together-$12 to pick or change seats ahead of time. Just be prepared and knowledgeable about this airline and other budget airlines and you will be satisfied. - pay for bags in advance, Try to weigh your checked bags before the airport, Bring snacks or drink on flight - otherwise you have to pay for it. Trenton and punta gorda airports are small, you have to walk to the plane. I love the small airports, no lines , easy parking!"
Cons: "Seats aren’t that comfortable and don’t recline even a bit, tray table is small."
Pros: "friendly helpful staff. on time. safe."
Cons: "my suitcase went to the WRONG destination. very inconvenient and expensive. also plane interior was pretty shabby which made me wonder about the engines, mechanical etc."
Pros: "on time, hepful personnel"
Cons: "my gate checked luggage was lost"
Pros: "The service is not extravagant but completely adequate. Also, it is very consistent every time I fly them."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was fast but I was coming from Vegas so it’s not that far."
Cons: "They charged me $50 for a carry on even after I told them repeatedly that I tried to change it on my ticket days before I was leaving. It would not let me change it or even check in on the mobile app. It was very hot and we had to wait for awhile before any air conditioning started. No entertainment or complimentary drinks."
Pros: "The crew, from start to finish were great. From gate to gate The plane was nice and clean. The phone app was pretty well done also."
Cons: "I know you have to make a buck but damn. Peddling food, drink all the charges and the credit card offer during the flight."
Cons: "Left/ arived 30" late"
Pros: "Love this flight from Belleville to Punta Gorda. On time and great crew."
Pros: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."
Pros: "Quick boarding with priority access Friendly staff"
Cons: "Unclear boarding instructions. Both flights roundtrip were delayed about an hour. Wasn't advised of seat changes and reasons why. Mobile passes were unavailable due to a system issue gate attendants had to check manually. Bring own snacks or eat before flight and provide your own entertainment. Seats not reclining are uncomfortable. Not suitable for someone with back issues. First flight was uncomfortably cold return flight was uncomfortably hot."
Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Cons: "Literally had to pay for every little thing that is usually included in other airline tickets."
Pros: "First time flyer on this airline... I loved that it was a DIRECT flight halfway across the country."
Cons: "Where to start... i guess for starters EVERYTHING is an upcharge. I was suprissed the seatbelts were included! Less legroom than a Cesna 152 and surrounded by 159 of my closest friends. And i mean SURROUNDED. That cabin is SO tight! So tight in fact the seats are a blow mold plastic with roughly 1.5" of foam and fabric. Think go-cart bucket seat with some foam rubber and pleather. Then there's luggage... My carry on bag (that I've used for 15yrs) was too big for the jig at the counter so got to check it for an additional $10 (above the $30 i had to pay to bring it) and they charged me $40 for my original check bag. The hitch is that they only allow 40lbs ($1/lb) for that check bag when the rest of the industry says 50lbs is the norm. Oops, gotta pay for that too! And wait for it... sodas are $2 in flight!"
Pros: "Easy airport. Easy for rental return, going through security, and walking to the terminal. Quick loading time. Nice, clean plane with plenty of on-board crew to accomodate."
Cons: "Damage to checked baggage from Mesa to SGF. A quality, thick, hard-sided suitcase developed a crack in the side. Abnormal pressure would have had to be applied to cause this type of damage. Cheaper or soft-sided luggage would have experienced damage to the contents. Unfortunately, I did not check the luggage before leaving the airport to file a complaint."
Pros: "Fast flight. Good climate control"
Cons: "Flight attendants could smile or be a little more friendly. Overall good though. Could add wifi to flights."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Paying for my carry on bag."
Pros: "It's a budget airline so don'texpect thrills, but it got me to my destination."

Cons: "Seats are too close"
Cons: "Plane was an hour late."
Pros: "They opened the door when my friend was late"
Cons: "Nothing they are great"
Cons: "That you guys so tight that would not even offer free water....."
Pros: "The crew, was friendly and attentive to any and all needs."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Newark at 4:30. But it did not leave Charleston until 6:15 PM! This is not the 1st time this has happened with United. It seems that they are always some kind if “weather” delay with United flights arriving and departing Newark. Also, they are constantly cancelling flights to/from there. I would suggest looking at a different airline, perhaps one that cares more about the passengers iteneraries than the number of passengers."
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."

Cons: "Wifi access"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They comped everyone the direct tv access as an apology for the delay, but I'd rather be comped wifi."
Cons: "It ended up being a 5 hour delay. I would have been fine with it if they had told us up front that it was 5 hours, but instead it's 2 hours, then after an hour passes they tack on another hour and so on. It would be nice just to know it'll be a long wait, so we can leave and come back or reschedule our flight for the next day."

Cons: "The rules of basic economy are far too restricted"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants brought a few people drinks and then disappeared leaving the rest of us thirsty"

Pros: "Timely take-off. Info from flight deck good in the beginning."
Cons: "However reporting of weather delay and the info about fuel stock on the aircraft could have been beter managed."

Cons: "The staff were very nice but should have told us about the delays which added up to over 5 hrs. And they lost our luggage. This Newark to Albany flight is known for beinh incredibly unreliable."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The whole flight seemed like a sales pitch. Pay to upgrade to our empty seats with a little more legroom. Pay to watch TV cross country (Delta, American, and all others are included). They did have more sales pitches on the screen for 6 hours though. Pay for snacks. Not even peanuts or pretzels anymore. They do give you a disgusting wafer. Flew back on Delta and didn't see any of this. Between this and their recent beating up of customers, no more United for me."

Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Length of flight."
Cons: "We were kept in the airport for hours on end without being informed our flight was cancelled. Something was wrong with the plane and then by the time it was fixed the crew had times out. We were given no information, the delays just kept increasing and increasing. We had to fly out the following morning which made things very inconvenient for getting rides from the airport and getting to work on time."

Pros: "Being able to leave on my desired day."
Cons: "This would have been my first time on this airline ans I was excited going into it with ano open mind. However as I was getting ready to head to the airport, my flight was canceled and they rebooked for another flight that would leave the next day with a 3 to 4 hour layover. I was frustrated with the flight selected and therected seemed to be no effort into suiting me with an equivalent flight in which I purchased, which was a direct flight. I spoke to a reap that found a flight on another airline, but it still was not a direct flight in which I requested. For this being my first impression I was not impressed!"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No wifi on small plane"
Pros: "Staff was courteous, and explained situation clearly."
Cons: "After booking my flight two months prior and checking in 12 hours earlier, I was not allowed to board the plane because United had overbooked. Thus forcing me to fly to Charlotte then Newark at a 5 hour delay. There was also no drink for those in my row during a two hour flight from Charlotte to Newark."
Cons: "Significant delays, minimal information."
Pros: "Didnt like anything. Hate little planes!"
Cons: "Even though plane was not full, I wished my seat from the very last row was moved closer to front or center of plane. Would you like to be seated next to bathroom for a 40 minute flight??!!"

Cons: "See first leg response above"
Cons: "lost baggage from chicago to alb"
Pros: "There were open seats!"
Cons: "Delayed a little because of weather. No big deal."

Pros: "Loved the clever twist to pre flight instructions"
Pros: "They put me on a flight for the next day and got me a hotel room when it was determined I missed this connection"
Cons: "I was supposed to go out the day before. My first flight landed 30 minutes before it was scheduled. I would have gotten to the gate with 10 minutes before departure. No one called ahead, checked if there were people connecting. With 15 minutes to go on the shuttle between terminals, they called ahead and the gate was already closed. It was the last flight out of the day."
Cons: "Very rude gate agents."
