Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working, and the charging stations weren’t working either."
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: "It was a Great flight. I always enjoy flying Delta"
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "Super crew. Reasonably good food. Liked how safety conscious crew was."
Cons: "Nothing. Great job everyone"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the crew was courteous."
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was jovial and very pleasant. Smiles all around. Flight attendant at the very beginning said, "Welcome to flight --- to Bahamas. . . just kidding." It made people chuckle."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "In one hour flight we could have some drinks and food. Snacks... can’t believe they don’t have any food/alcohol"
Cons: "Vegan options"
Pros: "the entertainment choices were adequate"
Cons: "More efficient deplanning. It took us 40 minutes to get off the plane after it landed"
Cons: "I paid to be in row 1 first class, when I checked in I was in the first row, then as I boarded I was told my seat changed to the back row in first class for no reason at all. I choose the 1st row for a ready and I expect to sit there! 2 flights in a row that Delta moved my seat for no reason"
Pros: "Everything about delta"
Pros: "Yes very clean plane and crew was amazing. My daughter was hungry and the crew filled her bottle with milk twice"
Cons: "Maybe better snack"
Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane, crew professional and nice."
Cons: "I was assigned a seat on the last row of the plane--these not only don't recline, but it feels as though they push you forward. Also, the engine sound was so deafening with such intense vibration that I was unable to hear the flight attendant speaking to me from 2 feet away, much less anything overh"
Cons: "Better screens for in-flight movies. More legroom or upgrade options."
Cons: "Flight Delayed > Pilot on Connecting Flight"
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate and it changed 3 times to Accommodate others."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Late flight due to ground hold EWR. Two screaming kids immediately behind me."
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: "It is a short trip from Atlanta to Augusta."
Cons: "No complaints...too short of a trip to complain about anything!"
Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "My first perfect Delta flight. No issues. No delays. Excellent customer service. What more could you ask for"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and well planned. The pilot was talking to the passengers politely, was updating about the flight every time when it was turbulence. The crew is very smiling, sweet and nice. The snacks are good and fresh. Very clean airplane with a good fresh odor. Good job! You are fantastic!"
Pros: "They waited for me as I was late"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage"
Pros: "The snacks were decent on the flight. Everything else was a disappointment."
Cons: "Unexpected delay for take off after being told the flight was going to be on time. They couldn’t give us a reason or an eta on take off while waiting at the gate which affected my ride situation once I landed in Seattle."
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: "Great entertainment offering plus liked that I was able to charge my phone at the same time."
Cons: "Nothing to add"
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane didnt have any extras and the headrest didnt have the adjustable flaps."
Cons: "Lack of charging outlet and no headrest screen for entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and gave us free headphones and adjusted our seats so we could sit together as a family. There were no delays to ATL just 48 hours after the power outage the regular scheduled flight schedule had resumed. Great Flight, Great Crew!"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "We didn’t order food and there was no in flight tv/entertainment"
Pros: "The stewards and flight was overall fine. In fact I found the stewards to Atlanta from West Palm very accommodating."
Cons: "I have reservation on booking Comfort plus next time I fly though. There appeared to be no difference in the seating or service as economy. A lesson learn I guess. I will atillflyDelta but stick to economy. I saw no perks"
Pros: "great flight - easy and quick as always"
Cons: "the power on the plane didn't work and there was no entertainment"
Pros: "I love the media that is INCLUDED in the price of your ticket on Delta Flights. That sets Delta apart for me."
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: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment"
Cons: "the flight attendant on my first flight was awful. Ride and incompetent. The second flight was delayed 1.5 hours with no explanation and now we are waiting for our fate to open up in Denver. We were told it would be 5 minutes but so far it has been 30."
Pros: "love to fly delta"
Cons: "don't like when they ask to check bags at gate"
Cons: "It was belated by 2.5 hrs :("
Pros: "The entertainment system worked well and was able to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "It's very cramped seating. They started boarding by rows but then gave up. Crew are nice."
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"
Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."
Pros: "Manchester Airport first class. More services and convenient than JFK and Atlanta. Check in and gate staff great in Manchester. I"
Cons: "Plane change JFK. Staff with TSA looked like they slept in their uniforms. Information incorrect on wifi customs and caused delays. Customs agents first class."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The delta comport seats were not comfort seats were hardly comfortable and the leg room wasn't worth paying for."
Cons: "Expected a two hour layover, but due to delay I ended up waiting more that 14 hours at the terminal."
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."
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: "Good crew. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Seat 20D stereo plug on screen was very finicky, lost audio until I twisted the plug. Happened any time I moved the headset cord."
Pros: "The seat is uncomfortable"
Cons: "Be on time. It left 2 hours late causing much stress and inconvenience"
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant!!!"
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"
Cons: "Normal los azafato tienen que estar más pendiente ala tripulación que anda con nenes chiquitos los papas se se duermen y los salvajitos se creen que están en un campamento de verano.y quieren romper el avión más pendiente a eso"
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!"
Pros: "comfortable seating, lots of movie choices. food and drink selections were nice.Galley snack choices were underwhelming"
Cons: "Staff was fair, but nothing compared to the service on JAL from CA to Tokyo. Very loud throughout the flight pushing the drink cart through the 8 Business Class rows instead of just delivering drinks to the 32 people in the section. Once the initial food & beverage service was complete, the service practically disappeared unless i sought them out in the galley."
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: "Flight crew was pleasant and efficient. Everything was on time."
Cons: "Cramped seats with zero leg room."
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: "Flight was fast and comfortable."
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: "Good flight overall"
Cons: "The experience at DFW was terrible- long lines to get out of baggage claim because of too few agents to process 1000 people waiting. Also long lines for TSA screening to get to gate."
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: "Not much. Standard flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats, unintelligible announcements, battered by credit card promotions."
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: "Customer service people were nice."
Cons: "American Airlines broke my carry on luggage handle and was told that I couldn’t claim it even though I was told that I had to check it in. Airplane was cramped, felt really uncomfortable"
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: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Baggage claim process way too long. Took 1hr to get off plane."
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: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."
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."
Pros: "the crew was very helpful"
Cons: "seats could have been a little wider"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Crew and plane ride."
Cons: "The seats hurt us."
Pros: "Florida was amazing. The people were very friendly."
Pros: "Good pilots"
Pros: "Crew food. Seat small little leg room."
Cons: "Plane on time. More leg room."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Offer at least water at no charge."
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: "After 2 hour delay we had to beg for a water and the stewardess brought a tiny cup. Made for a very long night."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable, crew was fine, but"
Cons: "Three hour delay? Unacceptable. Not entirely the airline’s fault, but still..3 hours. Not good."
Pros: "We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived early and boarding was smooth. Seats were not that great. Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "A free beverage and snack."
Cons: "Very dissatisfied with boarding and told we had to pay for our luggage but noone else did .I had prepaid for 1 incase I brought big luggage but I brought carry ones. So I was charged 100..but everyone else's was larger"
Pros: "Crew friendly and professional"
Cons: "Everything is extra, even water or soda. Seats are narrow so glad im not a heavier person"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped but I suppose most are these days"
Pros: "The plane was very clean and well lit. The crew was excellent. Very friendly and nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable. They are so close together and there is no room to store anything. The tray tables are a joke, you can't even fit an iPad on them. The bag check process was trouble at both legs. They have lower weight limits than the major carriers and that really should be highlighted better when you book with Allegiant. Also, bag checkin for the flight I was on started at 7:45am. There were only 2 people at the checkin counter and one of them was busy doing something and ignoring the customers. So that was a little annoying."
Pros: "Flight left early and was at destination 30 minutes earlier!"
Cons: "On the return trip, I had to wait 30 minutes for my luggage."
Cons: "my Luggage did not make it to Reno."
Cons: "The $17.00 i paid to insure the flight was not honored. I had some health issues and needed to cancel. I was then told that the airline I chose through your site, won’t honor it. I am furious and am owed my refund."
Cons: "4 hours late. No explanation. I have flown Allegiant 3 times. Late twice."
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."
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: "Plane was late. 2 years ago it was late and while there at the airport I heard Allgeant routine runs hours late or cancels. 3-4 hours, not an hour. Good thing I dont fly too often"
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: "Seating assignment before the flight. Direct flights."
Cons: "Felt nickel and dimed to death by extra fees for trip insurance, luggage, and picking advanced seating. Ended up spending more than if we had just chose another airline."
Cons: "Both original and 2nd plane had malfunctions which caused extensive delays and doubled boarding time"
Cons: "Moving from one gate to another. The three hour delay. It appeared that no one person really knew what they were doing. The disabled in wheel chairs we left on there own. One elderly woman literally fell out of her wheel chair to the floor. I was discusseded by the events of the airline."
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"
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."
Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Pros: "Flight cost."
Cons: "Xtra charge 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: "flight took off on time"
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Cons: "The flight from Las Vegas was changed twice"
Pros: "It's a budget airline so don'texpect thrills, but it got me to my destination."
Cons: "The boarding agent didn't understand priority comes before group 3."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything."
Pros: "Flight smooth"
Cons: "Extra costs"
Pros: "everything was organized, friendly and right on time"
Cons: "seats are an in thick. also, too much talking!, why do you need to tell people abc are on the left, def rt three times? they re marked and a few tines not to queue by the bathroom? and in and on... after the safety fdrill, pipe down, its annoying!"
Pros: "The direct flight"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "6hr delay, boarded the plane 3 separate times. 2 different mechanical problems. Infrequent updates"
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "flight was delayed 4 hrs"
Pros: "Some of the crew was VERY rude. I was uncomfortable and will never fly through them again."
Cons: "That you guys so tight that would not even offer free water....."
Pros: "The plane was nice, staff friendly, and my flight departed and arrived on time! For what I paid for the ticket, I was very scared of what type of plane I would be on but in the end was pleasantly surprised and will use this airline again!"
Cons: "I don't like how fast the prices change and how they charge for every little thing. But then again my ticket was dirt cheap so I can't really complain."
Cons: "Flight personnel seem like they dont enjoy their job."
Cons: "It was canceled. Minimal customer service"
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: "more space on this flight somehow? still cramped but not as bad as others."
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: "There was one stuardess, a blonde woman. I tried getting her name but wasn’t able to. She was extremely rude. She spilled trash on me twice and when I tried helping her pick up some of the stuff she had dropped, she ripped it out of my hand and threw it in her little cart. she was never apologetic and always very rude. She kept slamming things into her cart and left a trail of trash throughout the whole cabin. The rest of the crew was wonderful and the flight was easy and comfortable."
Cons: "Crazy cold all flight long, made me even waking up. They should have served gloves and hats."
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"
Pros: "For the most part the staff made an attempt to help me get onto a flight. I think."
Cons: "I had to go on my trip a few days later due to a work conflict. I never changed my itinerary because I didn’t think it mattered. I bought a new one way ticket on a different airline and went to get on my return flight that I had paid for and was still receiving emails about. I got to the airport to check in for my return flight and it had been canceled because I didn’t get on the first leg. I was never notified and they couldn’t get me on the flight I wanted because it was leaving in less than hour(which is a stupid rule). And to get me on a flight the next day would cost $2500. No thanks. And before anyone tells me that it’s in the fine print that they cancel a flight if you don’t show up, save it. We all know people don’t read all that. Be a human being. So if your plans change, make sure you officially change your plans, because they may go above, but probably not beyond. Oh and it took quite a long time for them to figure out what happened. If they had realized and I didn’t spend so much time on the phone with customer service, I might’ve been outside the hour window requirement."
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."
Cons: "Landed in Canada to let off a "sick" passenger, sat there for hours and after the pilot made countless excuses, including needing to refuel, needing a new route, and needing to de-ice the plane, he finally announced that we're headed all the way back to Newark for some unknown reason. Worst flight ever. Couldn't be any less happy. F*** this airline. Will never use again. Ruined my vacation, thanks a lot."
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: "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."
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: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "Wifi was spotty"
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 $90, the same week. Never again!"
Pros: "Very friendly staff! Hello's and goodbye's and asked if anyone needed anything several times"
Pros: "Well, my original flight was cancelled due to bad weather, got to spend 2 extra days with my family! Gave up my seat on the last leg of my flight, got a 500$ 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: "The crew on this segment was very nice. They seemed to go out of their way to make everyone happy."
Cons: "It was a painful wait to board the aircraft. The gate crew was running around like they didn't know what they were doing, and they wouldn't fill us in on when we would actually start boarding. We boarded about 30 minutes past the scheduled boarding time. Then once we landed, everyone waited for 30 minutes at the baggage carousel."
Pros: "Roomy seats. Good leg room."
Cons: "Seat comfort is ok, they do not recline very much. You can only watch movies if you have an app on your phone or tablet."
Pros: "No delays, smooth flight!"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "feeling cramped"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants Help luggage personel"
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: "Smooth boarding. Friendly crew. Got us there on time, despite a late start That included a gate change."
Cons: "Was asked to check my carry on bag, because the flight was full. Meaning they sold the seat I purchased for my wife (who was unable to make the flight). I did so, but when I looked in the overhead bin after the flight, it was empty. When we arrived in Denver, I waited at the baggage carousel, watched everyone pick up there bags, until there were only 5 or 6 bags going around. I then went to a counter behind the carousel and asked about my bag. I was only then told that my bag had been there the whole time I was waiting."
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"
Cons: "Almost missed our flight because they wanted to close the gate early..other than that a good flight."
Pros: "Service was good. Flight was on time. Comfort was fair. Bathroom on board plane was so small my knees would hit door."
Cons: "It was alarming how little leg room there was. I'm 5'5" and average weight and my legs were pressed against the seat in front of me. Also there were no free snacks for a 5.5 hour flight, which is kind of tacky."
