Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Come on, business class is better in the train than in a plane? My foot was a box of 20 small chips, sausage and a very small candy"
Cons: "Older plane so the entertainment system was dated and the touch screen didn’t work for me in certain areas, but otherwise it was a great flight. Efficient customs in Minneapolis as well!"
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "Super crew. Reasonably good food. Liked how safety conscious crew was."
Cons: "Nothing. Great job everyone"
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no reasonable alternative. Ended up driving."
Cons: "Vegan options"
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Pros: "Everything about delta"
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "This is what airlines used to be like. The food and quantity were excellent. Too bad these services aren’t offered on domestic flights. We had a snack or meal every couple hours with plenty of drinks. The legroom was ample and comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was not crowded and plenty of flight attendants offering service throughout flight Also smoo5h flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice, helpful abd friendly. Very seemed glad to serve us."
Cons: "The seats were so close that we could not sleep. You couldnt put your head back or down on table even with pillows. Will not fly Delta again on long flights."
Pros: "They were very helpful. I hurt my leg and am on crutches and they were extremely helpful to get me to my next gate in Minneapolis and to get me to baggage claim in Philadelphia."
Pros: "I have never seen a gate attendant call each person by name as she scanned their boarding passes! At Delta I felt welcomed by every employee. Even the pilots greeted the passengers as they exited. All the other airlines just want my money, they want to cram me into smaller and smaller spaces and want me to sit there and shut up so they don't have to interact with me. I will fly Delta every chance I get, even if I have to pay more money."
Pros: "chwcking in was very easy."
Cons: "No in board beverages. On flight from RDU to PHL beverages were served."
Cons: "Very slow to load and unload. Not sure how I always get a middle seat in the far back. Basic economy is basic."
Pros: "Equipment felt a bit dated. No entertainment system, which was fine with me. Skipped the offered snack. Just had water. Flight was onntime."
Pros: "It is a short trip from Atlanta to Augusta."
Cons: "No complaints...too short of a trip to complain about anything!"
Pros: "seat was fine."
Cons: "A/C was blowing right on our heads. Asked to have the A/C turned down. They said sure. The nothing. Asked again? Nothing. 3rd time, my neighbor and the people in the seat ahead told them that we were ll cold. Nothing! I was sneezing by the time we landed."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed overnight. With modern tracking, should have been notified that the luggage was not loaded on the same flight as me, eliminating my wasting 45 minutes at ATL realizing that my baggage was not coming and then having to queue to notify the airline that it had not come."
Pros: "They waited for me as I was late"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage"
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
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: "Seat was upgraded."
Pros: "Normal flight with every seat filled. I liked the icw.cream bar they served."
Cons: "Small seats. Dirty air."
Pros: "All the staff and flight crew we're really great and thoughtful. Helpful with finding overhead compartments on a full flight."
Cons: "Seats could be bigger, with more leg room. But we know that's not gonna happen."
Pros: "Delta made the experience great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost two hours"
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Pros: "Good selection of free, in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed on the runway, but that wasn't the airlines fault."
Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Pros: "More entertainment options were added. Thank you"
Cons: "It didn't fly fast enough. Jk. Not much to say"
Pros: "I love the media that is INCLUDED in the price of your ticket on Delta Flights. That sets Delta apart for me."
Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"
Pros: "Timeliness of flight."
Cons: "I was told if I didn't show proof of a return flight to the US that they wouldn't let me board. I live in Mexico. None the less I had a return trip booked for a family event on another airline."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "I used a regional certificate to upgrade; this wasn't 1st / biz class at all; the seats are just big clunky leather seats, no recline, no leg room. Really disappointing for a red eye flight across the US."
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Cons: "It was belated by 2.5 hrs :("
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"
Cons: "lack of carry on luggage space. very tight. gate agents did not care about the customers. I had to stick my bag under the seat and only half would fit so my feet did not fit with my bag. it was a back pack. I do not prefer checking luggage since I've had so many bad experiences."
Pros: "The plane wasn't ice cold, which was a nice change."
Cons: "I couldn't close my air vent unless I wanted to hear a nice whistling sound for the duration of the flight. So I just left it open, no big deal."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, half full flight was nice to have room"
Cons: "Expected a two hour layover, but due to delay I ended up waiting more that 14 hours at the terminal."
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job navigating around the bad weather and the landing was amazing, I barely felt anything! Thank you to them and the flight attendants!"
Pros: "Nice to fly again!"
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."
Pros: "Very sociable crew, Appreciated the complementary food & wine"
Cons: "I t somewhat frustrating to have to go through 2 complete screening checks. I realize that this issue is not American Airlines but rather results from ????"
Cons: "If delay to much pls let customer out of plane"
Cons: "Hard to say...it seemed good. I would have liked complementary baggage check"
Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent."
Pros: "The seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Traveling with 2 seniors in their 80’s. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect."
Pros: "some what and it could be better"
Cons: "the help you get from the crew and if they wouldn't make so many gate changes"
Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"
Cons: "Needed better food selection"
Cons: "Left very late with very poor communications that kept changing as well as the gate info!"
Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."
Cons: "My gate boarding was changed three times by the time I saw the last update the plane was on the run way gone already"
Pros: "Fast quick flight. Bags out quickly."
Cons: "Seats are far too cramped for someone who is 6,2."
Cons: "Crew was rude, and we had to wait an hour to leave, I understand things happen, but then we were rerouted mid flight so it was inconvenient and again I get it, things happen. But the landing was incredibly rough and the pilot didn’t apologize. That would have made things better, but he said nothing about being sorry we were delayed and nothing about the rough landing."
Pros: "No blankets no entertainment"
Pros: "Had row to ourselves."
Cons: "Entertainment arm rest did not work, flight attendants we're not very attentive to used items left on tray s to pick up. Empy cans ad wrapper s say for 3 hours before being picked up. Middle rest room was left very dirty due to bad hygene of passengers."
Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped for a tall person"
Pros: "No complaints at all. Comfortable and on time."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful of the flight was fine!"
Cons: "Arriving 2 hours before my flight I had a hard time getting through security because of my handicap situation, I arrived at the gate as the plane was leaving the gate, whie American Airlines where able to get me on the next flight, the flight was 3 hours after my original flight! JW"
Pros: "Flights to Reno tend to be empty if you fly in the right time of the week. I booked the cheapest ticket and ended up getting an exit row all to myself."
Cons: "There is no seatback TV which is a major drawback. They do have a service that you can stream through your personal device but my power outlet didn’t work so my laptop died mid movie."
Pros: "Latam lounge in Bogota"
Cons: "Pay for premium seats, not enough leg room a rip-off"
Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."
Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"
Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and hardworking. Made sure all passengers were taken care of."
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Slow set up of gateway upon arrival"
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The PA system was not working in the terminal, so crew member had to yell for passengers to hear her while calling out the groups to board."
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "Entertainment comfort crew food fligjt"
Cons: "Not 1 thing"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Arrived earlier. Nice plane, very clean."
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Cons: "Walking through TSA in San Diego there is an agent picking people out and telling them there bag is too big to be carried on ( the same carry on bag I've used for years ) and making people go pay to check them. However some people are being allowed to check their bag at the gate for free. No one at the airport working for them had any good customer service skills. Wont fly with them again"
Pros: "Everything I like :)"
Cons: "Got to charlotte with 80 minutes to connect. Sat on the tarmac for 60 waiting for a gate. Missed connection by <5 minutes. Thanks, AA!"
Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."
Cons: "Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Seat accommodations were great Gate assignments at airport should be confirmed before the plane arrived"
Cons: "Absolutely GREAT!!!"
Pros: "the crew was very helpful"
Cons: "seats could have been a little wider"
Pros: "Crew and plane ride."
Cons: "The seats hurt us."

Pros: "Good pilots"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "I wish there was at least a free beverage."
Pros: "Crew unfriendly, unprofessional, and not courteous,"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Bag check agent could have been a little more friendly."
Pros: "Comfortable and inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "It was all good!"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Not having so many extra charges and having to pay for a carry on"
Pros: "Crew food. Seat small little leg room."
Cons: "Plane on time. More leg room."
Cons: "You really need to install jet ports at Punta Gorda. We sat on tarmac for almost two hours due to rain and lightning in the 5 mile radius. Would have avoided this delay with a jet port."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Allegiant knows how to get people off and back on the plane ASAP. The last few flights I have taken we left early and arrived earlier than planned because of this. Crew was friendly. I like the fact the flights are direct and no layovers at airports."
Pros: "The prices are good. That's pretty much it. I can't say anything else"
Cons: "you get what you pay for. Both flights delayed. One delayed for 12 hours. limited days to fly out"
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times, the directions on having boarding passes on the app or printed prior were not given so found that our last minute to avoid paying the front desk clerk $5.00. The flight landed 5 hours later than scheduled which is completely unacceptable."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The flight left on time and was fine."
Cons: "This flight was at a small airport and we waited in line for security longer than at a large airport. There were 5 flights going through security at the same time with nothing scheduled later. Why not spread them out a bit and save everyone some time?"
Cons: "my Luggage did not make it to Reno."
Cons: "they charged me more money because i need alleges air . ap"
Pros: "Great airfare, great staff, etc. Cant help that the passengers are idiots ! Love this place."
Pros: "Kids board first and you dont have to worry about seating if u have a young child. Also, the nonstop flight was so relaxing."
Cons: "Not much..."
Cons: "parking my car 2 weeks in Asheville Long term was $96. I should have gone to Charlotte, parked at my friend's house and paid AA the same rate for a nicer seat and cabin leg room. a la carte pricing ran my bill up even with NO checked luggage. Asheville doesn't have a shuttle service for the long-term parking."
Pros: "Ease of getting on and off, direct flight home, free parking in Belleville."
Cons: "seats are ok for 2 hour flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time, the cabin attendants were courteous, and the flight captain kept us informed."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 4-5 times before it was cancelled all together and rescheduled for the following day. I lost over $200 in hotel charges and valuable time with family. A 3 day trip was decreased to a 2 day trip. Extremely disappointed. After sharing our experience with others we heard the same thing happened them."
Pros: "Priority check-in and boarding were pleasant."
Cons: "Very tight seats, even for a small person. No recline. Screaming children throughout the cabin."
Cons: "Sent email out asking for volunteers to reschedule her flight. Got on the plane our seats were not the same as selected. And we paid more to select our seats. Friend of ours seat was switched also and instead of him sitting next to his wife he sat next to a person who did not have an assigned seat he was extremely large and he was hanging off The seat into the aisle I noticed an empty seat and had to ask the stewardess if he could switch seats instead of the stewardess offering on her own. The flight out was delayed approximately one hour various mechanics coming on and off plane until finally we were able to leave."
Pros: "Great price. Direct route. Friendly gate staff and flight crew. On time (actually early) departure and arrival."
Cons: "Flip side of departing early is they closed boarding over 30 minutes before scheduled departure (nearly missed flight)."
Pros: "Boarding speed and flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline, even water is for sale."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours coming in and 5 hours going back. This is unacceptable. I will never fly Allegiant Airlines again."
Pros: "Very efficient service... for a first experience we were pretty impressed because your review overall were not that great. Good job."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."
Pros: "The prices are good. Anything additional (food, overhead carry on space) is an additional cost but this is how they make the tickets cheaper for people who don't need extras."
Pros: "I arrived less then 5 hours late"
Cons: "No free peanuts, no free pritzells,no tv show, no movie"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The plane was freezing the entire flight. Apparently, the crew tried to get the pilot to turn down the air, but it never happened. I hate how Allegiant nickel and dimes you. Not even a cup of water is free."
Pros: "Great price ."
Cons: "Landing in Austin and having to walk down a wet slippery ramp and then across the tarmac in a thunderstorm ... got VERY wet . How about a cover ?"
Pros: "Setas were good. Good price and good boarding system"
Cons: "Aircraft cabin was a bit dirty"
Cons: "The flight from Las Vegas was changed twice"
Pros: "pleasant flight got there and back safely"
Pros: "Plane was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The Plane WAS NOT CLEAN! The turn around of the plane was so short that you guys did not take the time to vacuum the interior of the plane. My seat and other seats in my row was full of cookie crumbs and sticky food from the previous passengers. It was totally disgusting. Yuck !!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "6hr delay, boarded the plane 3 separate times. 2 different mechanical problems. Infrequent updates"
Pros: "Small Convenient Airports, quick security, fast boarding"
Cons: "No coffee available"
Cons: "That you guys so tight that would not even offer free water....."
Pros: "everything was great everything went smoothly because some of the stuff I had to change at the last minute because I had to get home earlier than I originally planned but everything turned out wonderfully and everything okay even though there was a little delay because of the weather"
Cons: "Flight departure delayed two hours"
Cons: "First time flying Allegiant: Head's up! They charge you for EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING and the overall experience is awful. Would you like to know what it's like to fly on a plane bound for extradition to a foreign prison...fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like to experience the unexpected thrills of being nickeled and dimed at every turn....fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like the answer to the question posed after paying $100 for two carry-on's: 'could this get any worse?' Answer: It does!...fly Allegiant Airlines. Here's how it all starts out they welcome you to the terminal with a wonderful opportunity to pay $5 for printing your boarding passes (unless you download their app). How could a piece of paper that small that no other airline charges you to print cost $5 you ask? Well that is the magic of Allegiant Airlines at work, if they can't make something simple; both costly and annoying then you aren't flying Allegiant Airlines. You then inquire at the check-in desk can my loved one and I sit together, and they say sure but you will have to do that at the gate. Ok some positive news here...but then it sinks in.. wait a minute what Airline are we flying again? ...Allegiant Airlines, and what is their motto?? If it is simple and easy it shall become both costly and wildly inefficient. You arrive at the gate with hope in your heart and they then tell you, umm no. Who ever told you that is a fool! You can make no changes to your seating this is a 40,000lb aircraft with a 300,000lb lift capacity and it can't handle you sitting next to your girlfriend it would compromise the avionics and we would all surely die. Then why on the app did it show open seats? Seats of course for a price! Not by section like a normal airline ohhh noo a price that was completely different for every single seat as if the seats were in competition with each other in some high altitude economy that makes far less sense at sea level.The helpful response to this inquiry was 'oh well that was then' I am looking at it right now. I don't know what to tell you.. What's next?! A surprise $50 charge per carry-on! Unless you read the small print on one of their emails that is filled with advertisements they make it look like another advertisement, I'm going to go out on a limb and say INTENTIONALLY as it is never mentioned on: (The check-in email, the purchase confirmation email, not mentioned by the ticket counter, not anywhere on the app, not written anywhere on the electronic ticket despite them announcing otherwise) They instead tell you right as you are boarding the plane and have absolutely no choice in the matter and have done this innumerable amount of times as the flight attendant was well versed in de-escalation protocol and a security guard was positioned an arms length away as she deftly charges your card on file... I have run out of characters for this post I can only assume this comment section is run by Allegiant Airlines.."
Pros: "Paperless boarding was awesome and FREE, no flumbing for boarding passes at TSA or terminal gate. There was no entertianment on this short flight and I didn't buying any food or drinks so I have no rating for this section. To my surprized I was able to purchase Show tickets at a great discount on board only, very cool! Flight was on time both ways! Seat Confront was tight but the website made it clear the seating would be on selected seats and since I didnt pay for the upgraded seating you get what you pay for."
Cons: "The on-line section process was challenging to purchase tickets, not real user friendly had to keep going out of the site and back in again and then after payment was complete the baggage section was incorrect so it had to be fixed at baggage checkin, the baggage fees are cheaper on-line verses at the terminal but max weight was 40lbs the industry standard is 50lb. Didnt like having all the extra fees. All in all there was still a big saving as to going directly to SW Airlines"
Cons: "My row of seats was completely skipped when they were handing out refreshments."
Cons: "Flight personnel seem like they dont enjoy their job."
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "They delayed the flight like 5 different times and then the luggage took over a half hour"
Cons: "The delays, gate changes in a massive airport, and general lack of information made this trip excruciating."
Cons: "All went smoothly for this short trip. I booked several weeks ahead but still couldn’t get nonstop from STS to SAN."
Pros: "It was just okay"
Cons: "Nothing just flying in a smaller plane"
Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."
Cons: "I will never arrive to this airport again. It’s too difficult to go to manhattan (especially on Sunday) it’s not worthy to save a few bucks to spend more than one hour in the taxi"
Pros: "Felt like the pilot was experienced and skilled because It was very smooth in departing and landing."
Cons: "There was a lady sitting on my assigned seat. She said flight attendance told her that is ok to do. I wouldn't mind if she or staff asked me with legitimate reasons. It happened at mt last trip; ending up sitting next to big person instead of sitting with my 12 year old daughter."
Pros: "Excellent. On time."
Pros: "Flew United out of Sioux Falls. Check in took forever. United employees were miserable. Did get some help from a very nice TSA woman. TSA check in was a nightmare. Almost missed flight. Complete chaos. The sat on runway for 40 minutes waging for luggage to be loaded. Almost missed connecting flight. Just plane horrible. Very helpful stewardess however."
Cons: "Our flight was “delayed” 12 hours! Notably not cancelled and rebooked because then they would have to compensate us, I believe"
Pros: "Never made connection since first flight was deplaned"
Cons: "Never made it"
Cons: "Maintnece delayed our flight for nearly 3 hours. We remained aboard the parked plan for this time span and not allowed to get off of plan."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Stuck in Denver because our flight was delayed so we missed our connection to Houston. Couldn’t get a hotel voucher because they are claiming a weather delay (which there was none)."
Pros: "All Good."
Pros: "Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly."
Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and hard working"
Cons: "The fact that flight leaves gate on time and sits on tarmc for 15 minutes. This would be listec as on time departure but is a fraud. United has too few machines that work too slowly to tag bags and get tickets. On ground United staff rude and unpleasant. They are a disgrace to their stockholders! Also Newark Airport is decrepit and the United Terminal is run down with poor services that arte ovrpriced and dirty."
Pros: "Flight is a quick and easy one."
Cons: "It truly bothers me that during pre-board, United says, "if you have a disability you can board now." Who would want to be the person moving forward to board? Southwest says something to the affect of "if you have a pre-board and need a little extra time." Maybe they could change their verbiage to sound a bit more like we're in the 21st century."
Pros: "Good cabin & flight crew; kept us informed."
Cons: "Ran late. Seats are time (I'm average weight & height). Windows couldn't have been lower or we'd have been looking at the gear."
Cons: "0% leg room :("
Pros: "Assigned seat - delayed because of hot breaks but stayed on tarmac to cool while cooled only about 10 min."
Cons: "Airline stewardess should have suggested mom with young child in lap could move to empty row of seats."
Cons: "Didn't take the plane!"
Pros: "Need say thank you to Nathan Robinson at Palm Beach Airport for his kindness and compassion towards me.Exceptional service rendered.Thanks to him I will definitely refer all my friends and colleagues to fly with United Airlines.Pilot and all crew were super.we even arrived earlier.Thanks United Airline Staff."
Pros: "The flight attendant was really nice"
Cons: "Way too much money for the quality of first glass - I should have never upgraded, ancient."
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "Wifi was spotty"
Cons: "No food, just some pretzel, no entertainment for free, no space fir the carry on, the flight attendants were absents,e flight was delayed, they were no organized embarking the plane. United everyday is getting worst. I am gonna try not to fly with them anymore."
Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hrs delayed"
Pros: "The flight was fine. Crew was polite. No problems with that part."
Cons: "Tell me why it costs $470 to fly 1.5 hours from S.F. To Denver. Absurd! I flew from Denver to San Fran for $90, the same week. Never again!"
Pros: "Boarding. Took off early and landed early"
Cons: "Everything else. Seats were uncomfortable. One crew member smelled of some nasty perfume that burned my eyes and nose when she bumped her way down the aisle. Ground crew was rude at check in. Mischarged me for baggage. No entertainment on my ipad. Noisy."
Pros: "Very friendly staff! Hello's and goodbye's and asked if anyone needed anything several times"
Pros: "Well, my original flight was cancelled due to bad weather, got to spend 2 extra days with my family! Gave up my seat on the last leg of my flight, got a 500$ voucher, put up in a beautiful hotel, w/ a nice meal and transportation. Like winning a sweepstake. Always love United, great airline, great staff."
Cons: "There was nothing i didn't like. Airline of choice, for always!"
Cons: "It was a very small plane and the air must have not been working because it was very hot and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight arrived much earlier than scheduled."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Aircraft interior is dated."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options."
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing to like about this trip."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours due to a ground stop at the next airport. Upon finally boarding the plane for a second time, we sat at the Albany airport for abou 40 minutes. When arriving to the Newark airport, there was communication issues and no way for us to get to a terminal so we were stuck on that plane for 2 hours. While stuck on the plane my connecting flight got delayed twice then cancelled. Once finally in the airport, I waited an hour in line for customer service only to tell me they couldn't even put me up in a hotel because it was air traffic controls fault, even though NO other airline was down. They gave me a $10 food voucher, apparently that would fix everything. I had to put myself in a $130 hotel room and being a broke college student I wasn't expecting that. I will never fly united again, it was he worst experience I've ever had and one of the most stressful days. This airline is horrible."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants Help luggage personel"
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "two hours late without any reason given, and forced to check my bag on the prior flight to the final destination meaning I can't get it at gate side. Numerous flights to Cedar Rapids through United have been canceled or delayed without any explanation - I don't have faith in United anymore and will not book with them again."
Pros: "every thing"
Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight from PHX to RNO the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."
Pros: "Smooth. No problems. Happy we didn't have to get suitcases through customs because you could handle in Canada. Happy gate was near where we got off."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and asked for several volunteers to take later flights for travel credit. Ended up forcing those unlucky souls in the last boarding group off flight with no offer of credit or accommodation. Waited in customer service line for hours, literally longer than it would have taken to take off and arrive at my scheduled destination. United representatives could not find a flight that guaranteed a seat (not on a long standby list) that was even in the same 12 hour period. I spoke with a United supervisor who showed zero empathy or concern with the situation. In the end I arranged for other travel accommodations to drive to my family reunion destination. No refund was issued or offered. I was informed I would have to call United customer service after the date of my previously scheduled return flight to explain my situation. I will personally never fly United again and would recommend the same to anyone. Although for the record, I did receive a single ten dollar airport food voucher for my inconvenience. Inexcusable."
Pros: "Legroom and seat size were terrific. For me, movie selection was great--best of 2015."
Cons: "Luggage was delayed--apparently not transferred in Munich to United flight. Fortunately, it was only a 24-hour delay and contents arrived intact. But the explanation of what I could purchase to meet my immediate travel needs (toiletries, intimate garments) was indefinite and unclear and subject to reimbursement only if approved. Boarding was subject to additional security for flights to US in Munich airport where passport was checked yet again and stupid questions were asked and passengers were shuffled through a long queue."
Pros: "Ride was ok. Both our flights from Chicago were delayed. No one tried to explain or offer any apology. No one offered to complete anything or offer coupons for meals. I thought that was extremely rude."
Cons: "See above. Very disappointed. There were four of us and my 76 year old father has health issues and was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Staff and Pilots did a great job. Wheelchair was much apprecciated!!! Everything was on time or ahead of it. Great landing!! Wish you didn't charge for baggage and would like better snacks--oh for the good old days!"
Pros: "courteous attendents and airport personnel. on time flight"
Cons: "United had 3 gate changes. Ok sometimes that happens. This was said due to a storm out of colorado"
Pros: "Food was actually not bad at all. Charging ports between seats. Yeah!"
Cons: "Wished we could have taken that same plane the rest of the way. Nice flight attendants, super nice and new plane and more comfortable seats."
