Traveling Avianca was the worst experience especially on my return flight from bogato Colombia where I missed my flight because there was no gate number on the ticket and by the time we found out where to go which was through check in again where we were stuck on a huge line. First time I ever had to go thru check in on a connecting flight. Ended up having to by 6 tickets back to NY which is not right.
Pros: "In general everything OK"
Pros: "The people on the plane were great."
Cons: "The San Salvador airport is chaotic and not user friendly."
Cons: "The food was really out of the Avianca standard. The quinoa “salad” was frozen. I asked the flight attendant and he told me it was supposed to be room temperature, but it was crystallized. Understand it was Ash Wednesday and no meat was serve (cheese quiche was ok)."
Pros: "Everything was just fine"
Cons: "Nada todo excelente"
Pros: "Entertainment makes flight go faster. Many choices"
Cons: "the Food (. Snack) not the best choice of ham empanada and rice chips plus something else I didn’t even tried."
Cons: "Boarding very confusing. Meal consisted of a cheese sandwich, and that's it (I was flying business class). Seat was barely functional, cranky and unconfortable. This was my first and LAST flight with Avianca."
Pros: "Had a row upgrade"
Cons: "Ground personnel at IAH should handle luggage misplaced better. Had to wait 90 minutes for luggage to appear, since no one was able to explain why it never came out on the carrousel."
Cons: "The aircraft was to old"
Pros: "Ir was ok"
Cons: "It was noisi. Entertaiment components are bad."
Pros: "Buena atención del personal y cabina confortable"
Cons: "Precios más accesibles"
Pros: "Nothing. The staff was rude. Avianca was understaffed for holidsys"
Cons: "Poor entertainment. Lousy service. I spoke with manager Eva Maria, and she could care less. I have booked at least 12 flights on Avianca in the last two years. Service was shameful"
Pros: "Great flight on time and service was awesome"
Pros: "It was not crowed"
Cons: "No veggetarian options"
Cons: "We waited for 5 hours in El Salvador airport"
Pros: "Todo muy bien gracias muy profecionales."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Family boarding was super helpful when traveling with a toddler. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seat assigned to my daughter had a faulty life jacket and the crew wanted our family to split up. My daughter is 2 and didn't like that her dad was moving somewhere else as we were taking off. Since the crew member didn't want to ask the individual sitting next to me, I asked if she would mind moving so that our family could stay together."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Nothing. Airlines changed the flight time for connecting flight with out informing us. Whole reason, I booked a earlier flight so I can get to spend time in Lima but Avianca airlines changed the connecting flight from Bogata from 125pm flight to 330pm flight. I paid additional $250/ticket to get these tickets so I can get to Lima earlier than 7pmso that my wife and I can enjoy our honeymoon. I am very disappointed that airlines decided to switch flights without our approval. We did reach to Bogota at 1155am and we even tried to catch the 125pm flight from Bogota to Lima. but the staff was not helpful at all. All they kept on saying, “sorry nothing can be done, go file a complain”. Are you kidding me by saying that to your client, “go file a complaint”, instead of assisting. I guess Avianca airlines crew needs to learn about hospitality and customer service. NO AIRLINE MAKES Involuntary CHANGES with out notifying customers. Even on United Airlines, they don’t change flights with out informing customers."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Called the flight attendant several times and never came. Several people got a sandwich at the end of the flight but not everyone"
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff, speedy check in"

Pros: "I loved the in flight entertainment that reminded me of JetBlue."
Pros: "The tv"
Cons: "They changed our flight at the last minute and didn’t ask - just did it. Screwed our schedules up"
Cons: "there were huge delays of Avianca. There were 4-5 flights delayed. No any information available. nobody said anything, no info. Eventually you got on board of the plane. It got off the dock, and stood quietly in a side for another 30 min. No info, no nothing. I had a bad experience with Avianca, they don't care about. They may have their internal problems, but then don't charge the people this much for awful service"
Cons: "Avianca went on strike over a dispute with their pilots. The company waited until a few hours prior to the trip to cancel the trip (which was paid for with 3 months in advance). This was a transatlantic flight so we were forced to buy a vastly expensive ticket in another airline (due to the last minute urgency) which was not direct. The flight was for my 80 year old mother. Avianca forced us to a ridiculous process to refund the monies and only did so after many disputes over the phone and 30 days later. Will never use this airline again."
Pros: "They don't feel cheap like the USA airlines these days. Free entertainment, real food, free alcoholic drinks. Pilot gave my kids a tour of the cockpit and gave them a wings pin and a little toy airplane. Flight attendants are kind and efficient. AND they were the cheapest option. I want to always fly them if possible!"
Pros: "Price in comparison with the airline website"
Cons: "Everything was ok!!!"
Pros: "Crew is always smiling and pleasant"
Cons: "My bag got damaged"

Cons: "the food"
Cons: "Not sure why they started boarding us only to make us stand in the jetway for 10 minutes. Odd"
Pros: "The entertainment on board was amazing. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "The plane was extremely dirty. I couldn't believe it. First time boarding a plane to find that there was trash all around my seat and tucked in the front pocket. Doodles with a pen on the tray table, sticky arm rest, and it looked like the other seats around us were almost in the same shape. I would've rather waited an extra 15 minutes before boarding the plane for it to be clean. I think that was really poor on their part."
Pros: "Even for 3 hour flight you have on board entertainment with lots of choices complementary. That that United! o and yes you still get free snack. So there.! Also... No attitude from the flight attendants like American Run companies. where grand ma gets nasty after she hears you have an accent and dare to ask for extra water...."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Boarding and departure on both flights was very late, no food neither on the flight from Pasto to Bogota nor on the one from Bogota to Bucaramanga, no movies available"
Pros: "I got bumped from the flight. They overbooked. Three people were let on after me."
Cons: "There was a problem with their system, so they didn’t have a record of my checking -in. But, my email said I had checked in - just wouldn’t give me a seat number. They put me up in an old hotel that I would not recommend, so I can fly tomorrow."
Cons: "Copa ground staff did not let us board citing some yellow fever vaccination card requirement. What Copa did not know that there are some exceptions (which they don’t know and of which we just found out) allowed by WHO which would have let us continue our trip to Managua. Will never, ever fly Copa again. Actually I advise everyone else to stay away from Copa."
Pros: "Employees so so not friendly"
Cons: "More professionally"
Pros: "Flight was good as planned."
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally nice and professional on this flight."
Pros: "Crew and friendliness of ground staffers"
Cons: "Stop insulting folks with crappy cereal bars! Better to serve nothing at all!!! Ridiculous to even offer"
Cons: "I didn't like getting a notification that the flight had been delayed. Just to find out that it was on time when I arrived at the airport. I almost missed the flight."
Cons: "Need more attention to details like order to boarding and entertainment"
Pros: "Crew and seat comfort were exceptionally good"
Cons: "Since the flight was arriving at jfk,passengers were required to go thru a security check,prior to boarding.we were restricted to an enclosed area for hours with no water or bathrooms.small children were crying as it was a late night flight. Tsa precheck global entry were disregarded.avoidable"
Pros: "The crew was fine but I didn’t receive flight updates on the airlines app and was charged 340$ for missing a connection. I could have bought the same flight for half the price but then they wouldn’t give me my return flight."
Cons: "not charging me 340$ by threatening to cancel my return flight"
Pros: "Departure on time and efficient boarding."
Cons: "Extremely long lines in the morning to check-in. It took 1.5 hours from arrival at airport and being able to clear immigration."
Pros: "Check in was fast and efficient. Flight was uneventful, no issues."
Cons: "Copa check in is now at Terminal 3, but boarding is from Tom Bradley Inter'l Terminal. We did not see a regular "high placed" sign for Copa which caused us to make two circuits until we saw the street side sigm which is in a nondescript area and easy to miss. My entertainment touch screen was not responsive and sticky. It froze twice. However after bringing it to the attention of the crew, they did make the effort of resetting it. In this regard I highly commend the very tall FA who was a credit to his profession. It still had problems but did work somewhat. I will add that in all my prior experiences in which this problem occurs the FA's are too busy, or forget to reset the entertainment system, so I happy that he did. The interior did not seemed to be very clean there were food stains on the pull out tray and no in flight magazine in my seat pocket. the cabin crew was nice, youngish but did not have enough personality to tell off passengers doing things that they shouldn't out of common courtesy like the passenger seated next to me playing Chinese language videos out loud on his i phone. The same group spent a lot of time burping and then spending an inordinate length of time picking their teeth with wooden toothpicks which did not make for a pleasant scene. I almost lost my appetite seeing which what vigor they went at it, what were they expecting to find? They would then spit the residue in the air making me a bit nauseous. The food was dire especially the two melted cheese/beef/chicken sandwiches served near the last third of the trip. The main lunch ravioli meal served earlier was not bad. The bottom line is that the flight was uneventful with nothing to note, but there is definite room for improvement."
Cons: "1st flight was delayed so I missed my connection. 2nd flight was delayed due to mechanical issues so I missed my second connection. I traveled for over 24hours and now that it’s 3 days later , my checked luggage has still not arrived or been found."

Pros: "Discrimination and unequal treatment. Latinos were allowed exemptions from yellow fever entry requirements from same place on same plane similarly situated while white gringo was refused entry service Real world truth"
Cons: "Placed on standby although flight purchased 2 months earlier. Told was the first of 13 on list. Was passed over for other locals who yelled at agents for a seat. Being polite and being white is NO privilege. Was told there were no other flights. LIE, supervisor booked it . Not advised of yellow fever requirement and not allowed entry into destination Sent away on next plane"
Pros: "It was a short flight and it was ok."
Cons: "The pilot literally slammed the plane on the ground when we landed. Please teach your pilots how to land planes."
Pros: "Loved the check in. No baggage expense. Up to two bags FREE! Then, we had a meal --that was included in the fare. The crew was pleasant and accommodating. Everyone was pleasant. To pass the time on the 5 1/2 hour flight, there were options for movies, TV, games and etc. Overall, it was a pleasant flight. When I book my next trip, I'm going to see if Copa goes there. If so, that's my first choice."
Pros: "The price was really good, was the best way to returned yo Nicaragua."
Cons: "People from COPA in Guayaquil's airport didnt make the announcement to board in english, they only spoke in spanish! I am from united states and I don't know speak in spanish, that was a totally lack of respect for the people who work in Copa. The flight attendant inside the plane didn't speak english, her treated was the worst! She asked me to change my seat, I was sitting in an emergency seat and she decided to put there an old woman who had 65 years old approximately instead of me that I am 35 years old and the only problem is that I don't speak spanish!!! Then she offered me something to eat talking to me in spanish and knowing that I don't understand that language. I felt humillate because at the end of the flight she said in english "Have a nice day Sir"???!!!!! It supposed that she didn't know english, so I felt that she was playing. It was my first time flying with Copa Airlines and I had the worst experience ever travelling with them!"
Pros: "Nice people , schedule ,"
Pros: "I was impressed that even though it was such a short flight the crew worked hard to provide everyone food and drinks."
Cons: "This was the first Copa flight that we didn't receive a full meal. The crew also seemed more serious and less friendly than on other Copa flights."

Cons: "Always the good there was none"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time."

Pros: "quick fast and easy. It was over before i knew it, which is nice on a flight."
Cons: "The air conditioning was quite cold....not as cold as the previous onee between BZE and PTY, but still far colder than it needed to be. Im glad we brought jackets."

Cons: "the crew verifying that the passengers will use mouth covers during the flight"
Cons: "They kept taking my carry-on luggage, and checking it in, even though it met the standards of being a carry-on luggage, including the weight, size, and the plane was not full.

Pros: "The boarding was made very comfortably. The staff was nice."
Cons: "Was not able to travel because of the virus, I was suppose to visit my parents"
Cons: "Check in it take more the 20 min. Because they have trouble founding the name even with confirmation num.

Pros: "The crew was very nice and the seats very comfortable (we traveled in business class)."

Pros: "We were able to get emergency aisle seats. We are 6’2 and 6’4"
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 11, didn’t depart until 3. No pillows, no blankets on overnight flight. Speakers on plane not working so couldn’t hear announcements. Landed 30 minutes later than was told. STILL sitting on runway 15 mins later waiting for a gate."

Pros: "swift flight so that we could get off of the plane quicker."

Pros: "Surprise first class!"
Pros: "I had no problems and everything ran smooth."

Pros: "It wasnt crowded, staff was always available, and made it on time !"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours and it was never communicated to the passengers through the monitors. None of the flight info was updated on the monitors and we had no idea about: 1. which gate the flight was supposed to depart from 2. the correct time of the new departure since the flight was late 3. whether the flight was canceled all together The monitors showed the flight was on time until the actual time of departure. I almost missed my flight because I was never notified about the information above. The Aeromexico agents at the airport were not helpful at all: they did not know anything about the issue with the flight. I had to stay in a long line just to have them look up the flight in the computer and tell me that the flight was delayed. No other information was given to me. Terrible experience, especially after a long stopover."
Cons: "Terrible staff"
Cons: "Staff people @ checking in Mexico City are the worst! they are unfriendly, rude and unwilling to help people."
Cons: "Food was terrible and seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Cons: "On June 29 Aeromexico Flight 2683 arrived in Mexico City airspace and the Captain informed the passengers that the plane would have to refuel in Alcapulco due to inclement weather in Mexico City. The website https://www.timeanddate.com/weather/mexico/mexico-city/historic reports NO inclement weather on that date or at the time that AM 2683 was to land. I observed partly cloudy skies from my window seat as well. The ground crew in Alcapulco was unprepared for AM2683 and the fueling was delayed. After doing so, AM 2683 landed AFTER my connecting flight AM 684 was scheduled to depart at 1:05 AM on June 30. A female connection agent met me at the baggage claim and informed me that that AM 684 had not been held and had departed. The female agent was unhelpful, dismissive and rude. In fact, she had taken a personal cell phone call at the connections desk prior to assisting passengers of AM 2683 which lasted many minutes. She escorted us to the Aeromexico counter where I waited 30 or more minutes to speak to a representative. The representative at the Aeromexico counter informed me that there were NO flights to Quito until 1:05 AM on July 1. I asked if she could book me on another airline and she informed me that because the delay was weather related Aeromexico had no obligation to accomodate me. She booked me on AM684 for July 1. I asked where I was to wait for the next 24 hours and she said Aeromexico had no obligation to pay for lodgings. She gave me food vouchers for the airport. I immediately logged onto Travelocity.com and found a Copa Airlines flight to Quito leaving that afternoon which was in fact OPERATED BY AEROMEXICO! I booked that ticket myself and waited in the Mexico City Airport for 14 hours. What would have taken 10 hours took me 22."
Pros: "Again, great service."
Cons: "I was not able to connect to the WiFi."
Pros: "The entertainment was decent"
Cons: "The check in desk in lax is very unorganized and I think the staff was not knowledgeable at all. After checking in I was not given a boarding pass and told to get it after TSA check in, which made no sense."
Pros: "Received a notification (good) from kayak that flight from Puerto Vallarta to Mexico City was changed by 2 hrs 26 minutes., Aeromexico did NOT consider connecting flight to JFK. 50 minutes with 2 TSA checks no elevator and 4 flights of steps with carry on baggage and cross the entire airport for gate 59 from transport gate for passengers with age and medical issues. Unable to reach airline prior to airport arrival. Unavailable. Finally was told by customer service that if I hadn't gotten in an earlier flight we would have missed our connection"
Cons: "Unavailability of personnel in English. Given misinformation when I finally connected to someone. This is a recurrent problem. Friends actually missed the flight one week prior with same travel itinerary"
Pros: "The Flight was on Time , good crew , good Food"
Cons: "My passengers are still in mexico, The flight was delayed 1 day and I was not notified I need you to get me a new ticket at your expense"
Pros: "I liked the crew, the landing, and the drinks"
Cons: "Food consisted of custard, peanuts, and a croissant with ham and cheese Cold drinks were distributed only once. This is for a flight lasting almost four hours."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed but we got to our destination early. Lots of turbulance but the pilot flew in such a way that you barely felt it."
Cons: "Took 2 hours for the bags from our plane to get to the belt. Landed at 10:30pm and didnt get our luggage until about 12:45. There was 2 planes that landed right after us and all their baggage was on the belt within 10 minute!"
We are stuck on the tarmac. Landed on time but waiting now
Aa es la mejor aerolínea . La atención es excelente y eficientes
The person sitting next to me took my storage space under the seat but other than that was pretty good service and the food was not terrible.
Missed my connection due to poor weather disrupting AAs entire fleet. Rebooked my flights twice and was still unable to make it home. No offer of hotel compensation despite me being stranded overnight in Houston. Nothing really to do about it- just a bad couple of days to travel. I wish they were a little better at letting us know about delays in good time, as it would have made a difference to my planning.
Left 40 mins late; we were fine on our connection but many on our flight were not.
Cons: "The AC was off while we were waiting to takeoff so it never felt cool in the cabin for the hour(ish) long flight we had. I don’t know if it was the size of plane that made it so we couldn’t have that on while taxiing/waiting our turn to take off or what, but it was too hot and stuffy onboard in Texas on the tarmac. Our next flight from Dallas to Huntsville, AL had the AC on the entire time we were waiting our turn/taking off- the plane was newer and slightly bigger. Not sure what the deal was but it made the flight pretty miserable."
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "ON time"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, my flights were on time, good selection of movies. That's about it."
Cons: "Their Basic fare should be renamed "Bare-sic" – you have to pay for almost anything. Food choices can be better. I guess they can pay the Munich airport to get better treatment and not having to bus their passengers around."
Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "The communication on the actual flight could have been better. The flight from Houston to Charlotte was not very informative as in weather conditions, traffic, or the time in which we landed was not gone over."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "The plane could have been cleaner"
Cons: "Smoke in cabin, has to return to Houston. Then they never transferred our luggage as promised."
Pros: "Great crew. Easily accessible."
Cons: "Several delays."
Cons: "Gate change and delay in boarding. Delayed landing and made connecting flight difficult"
Pros: "Much better the typical American cattle class. Qantas actually served real food. Cabin was spacious."
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
Cons: "Need some sort of gluten free snacks!"
Pros: "Everything worked out great."
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth takeoff"
Cons: "The loud child behind me kicking my seat and yelling"
Pros: "Late takoff"
Cons: "Late takeoff"
Pros: "Was able to sleep"
Pros: "I decided to travel First Class from Houston TX and that was the greatest choice I ever made. IAH requires travelers to arrive 2-3 hrs early due to traffic or weather conditions. I checked in at 2 pm and waited for my 5 pm boarding call. First class was amazing! I stored my belongings without any issues. I sipped wine and dined on pasta and watched the movie Father Figures with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms. The stewardess was polite and friendly. The food was enjoyable and the passengers were friendly. The bathroom as also immaculate, I was impressed."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "Our bags were lost going to Rome for a wedding and our cloths were in the bags for the brides father and sister bridesmade. No updates and the have my phone number and email address. You would think it was 1968 or something! Unacceptable in this day and age of communication! The wedding is in 48 hours and can’t find our bags? All this was explained to the airline in Rome the baggage handlers etc. etc. still nothing. Absolutely amazing and disappointing!"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."
Pros: "An elderly lady sitting next to me with a broken arm.....was approached by the flight attendant and the flight attendant was so considerate that she took the lady to the empty seat in first class!!! I noticed this kind gesture and noted it to the flight attendant. She told me sometimes folks get upset asking why they did not get the upgrade! It amazes me....I always think if that were my mother how would I want to be treated!!! CUDOS to this Flight attendant....Thank you AA for making this gesture and God Bless you all!"
Cons: "Surprise....American Airlines no longer food nor one bag free! Well if you can stomach the not even a snack nor one bag...then Fly AA so not so bad after all. But Gate agents, baggage handlers, pilots and flight attendants take away any negatives whatsoever! Great work AA."
Cons: "The A319 outfitted in this way is to freaking tight!!! There is not even close to enough leg room for an average sized American male. I'm no taller than six foot and not overweight. You must fix this issue. I will look for other carriers whenever possible."
Pros: "the fly was on time"
Cons: "I don't like central seats"
Pros: "Las pantallas en cada asiento con entretenimiento ideal para los niños u también los adultos y además de ofrecer variadas bebidas dieron un snack."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice trip was uneventful."
Cons: "Personnel; lack of customer service"
Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."
Pros: "The Check In Agents were so kind and helpful especially when they found out we were having a rough time with a family situation.....So blessed to have those two ladies working for such a magnificent airlines"
Cons: "you have become like the rest of the wolf pack......charges on everything! Try become like Pan Am of days of old!"
Cons: "We were inside a plane for almost 3 hours due to unavable pilot. They got us out and then back in again, all in all we wasted six hours until the flight was cancelled."
Pros: "This particular trip everything went as well as can be expected. I was upgraded to first on both legs, always a bonus. Crew was friendly and efficient. FYI, this was not AA crew and equipment, was the regional sub. But still, all good."
Cons: "I don't care for the shuttle from the main terminal to the remote. It's crowded and uncomfortable, even for a few minutes."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and caused me to miss another connecting flight to get to my destination, and now need to purchase new tickets."
Pros: "Good pilot...smooth landing."
Cons: "snacks and lack of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"
Cons: "They lost our baggage and communication was terrible"
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag. That bag ended up on earlier flight and sat in Rochester for 5 hours. Was delayed due to "maintenance" and the inability to find flight attendant. Ended up changing gates and then forgotten for 45 minutes before manager asked someone if we were headed to Rochester. Once aboard second plane waited for another 45 minutes for fuel. Never flying American again.Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag.

Never flying American again."
Pros: "Normally I've been on planes where the seats aren't that great! But these seats were wonderful! :) I was out like a baby!"
Cons: "I don't really like the complimentary pretzels."
Pros: "I sat next to my wife"
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Cons: "I feel as though I should receive some kind of courtesy credit for the poor condition of the plane, friendliness of the staff, efficiency of the staff, and finally for being 3 hours late because failure to adequately fuel the plane. I was skipped for receiving refreshments, the plane had interior panels falling off. The second flight didn't have enough fuel for a 40 minute flight. The pilot told us that we were delayed for rain for 10 minutes but we did not have enough fuel to circle around. As a result we came back to Philadelphia. I missed a graduation party as a result. I had a poor experience. The flight attendants did not greet me on entrance or exit."
Pros: "Thoughtful crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seat."
Cons: "The departure gate was changed four or five times, including after we had traipsed from one end of the concourse to the other, only to have the gate changed BACK to the one from which we came. This was at supper time; we wanted to eat in the terminal but were rousted from two different lines to change gates. We couldn't stop running back and forth long enough to eat! I got updated info more quickly from Kayak than from United, despite having signed up for email and text notifications and having the United app. Come on!! Eventually we were marched down to a narrow hallway, crowded with passengers from two other departing flights, held in formation by obviously harried gate agents and finally led outside to the ramp to board the plane. The worst boarding experience. Ever. Give me Southwest anytime."
Pros: "I’m handicapped and requested wheelchair assistance when I booked flight. Not once was it ready I had to ask for it at every leg of trip, going and returning. Took morning flight home to connection and when landed was told that flight was cancelled and rebooked my on another flight which was fine but didn’t have the seat available that was originally designated and the woman at customer service didn’t care. New flight delayed 3 times and I ended up being in Newark for 9 hours and got a total of $30 in vouchers, had anyone that gives these vouchers out bought anything in an airport before? And the $30 I did get I had to beg for as well. No more united for me thanks."
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We took 2 United flights today... Both were delayed. Really annoyed by it. We took some other flights using AA and Delta, and both were on time. United failed horribly at it."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"
Cons: "delays were long, video sound is too loud for an evening flight. too many adds play on the screens and over the PA system"
Pros: "Nice flight but a little tight."
Pros: "Good customer Service"
Cons: "We arrived to one terminal and no one says that the next flight was in tom bradley terminal. After asking on the way, I realized that had to walk more than 35 minutes. No transfer service, no info, nothing. Finally after reach tom bradley terminal, the ANA staff said that they was very delayed and wanted to change my flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was very spotty and would almost be better if it wasn't available."
Pros: "WiFi and entertainment on board the aircraft"
Cons: "All goof"
Pros: "I'm so glad I got to sit next to my wife."
Cons: "I had to check in my carry-on when I got to the gate. I had my snacks and entertainment packed in my bag so I had to unpack my stuff for the flight. Once on the plane there was plenty of room for my bag to go in the overhead compartment. Not only did I deal with the discomfort of having to carry my stuff in my hand on to my next flight but I had to deal with a flight attendant that had no self awareness of his surrounding. The flight attendant ran into my shoulder more times than I can count. Such an irritating flight."
Pros: "I had no problems the gate agent was very nice and I did get the basic economy which that only did I have to pay for my bags but I also got the last seat in the back in the corner which is OK I guess I’ll pay more attention to the fair I still probably saved a little money but I don’t know that I save that much I think that sometimes the boarding agent needs to pay attention to the carry-on luggage for sure bring a lot carry-on luggage which doesn’t allow for others to have carry-on luggage who were in the later groups and then they get penalized with their bags being checked as there’s no more room and they’re not basic economy but other than that I like taking United they have nonstop service between Orlando in Houston and it’s been a wonderful experience most of the time and I think the airlines do a pretty good job considering the traveling public themselves to be very challenging at times professionalism and courtesy works both ways and unfortunately people buy tickets and think that it’s a one-way street. they then run to the media who loves to make it about the big guy versus the little guy anyway good job united and I will continue to fly you when you’re the most appropriate carrier to get me to where I want to be."
Cons: "Nothing I just need to pay more attention to my ticket purchase I didn’t realize it was a basic economy until after I bought it which meant I had to pay for my bags which added $50 to my fair which wasn’t that big a deal but then I got a seat all the way the back in the corner which really wasn’t that bad either but if I went to Carrynon a bag I was allowed to do so"
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "Lovely crew. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "The B terminal of IAH Airport is awful. Impossible shape and bad signage. The signs on the inside don't match the outside so picking up people is difficult."
Pros: "I was in Economy Plus and it was as nice as any type seat on any other airline."
Cons: "It would be nice if they could serve a snack in mid flight as it's a long long way!"
Pros: "We had an aisle each! The staff were friendly too."
Cons: "A slight delay"
Pros: "Crew were professional."
Cons: "Pay for food, tv, internet connection and no enough leg room"
Cons: "United was unorganized and they acted as if these cancellations were no big deal. Those two days that we missed could have been spent at work. Now I have wasted PTO time that I can't get back and wasted money at our resort that I wasn't able to get back. One of the agents at Bradley International Airport Sammy put her hands on my friend and screamed in her face USING FOUL LANGUAGE with a line full of people and their children waiting to check in. It was unprofessional and uncalled for. We did get police and management involved. The overall experience was terrible."
Cons: "It is smaller"
Cons: "I got late to my next flight !! I loose my flight ."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very patient with a difficult situation."
Cons: "Issue with something in the bathroom. I was on the plane watching them decide what to do for 20 minutes or more. Then I had to de-plane (just my row) while they cleaned. Then they decided it was too wet. Everyone deplaned. They changed planes and we didn't leave for hours. Seems like they could have found the issue and changed planes before we boarded."
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "Well no movie screens, and when you get on the plane they say there is internet movies, but you need to download the ultimate app for United to have it work!! The internet was so slow I could not download on my iPhone 7 Plus with 256 gigabytes and well No Movie!!!! It is the first time that I have not watched or played something in maybe 40yrs!! Also I asked for a seat that would recline and they gave me the only seats that do not because the emergency exit was behind!! The had no sandwiches or salads, they only had chips, crackers, etc"
Pros: "Free TV since we were 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "4 delays in 1 day on 2 flights. 2 gate changes with no relay of info and to top it all off my wife and i were reassigned to separate seats at the last minute by the airline and very rudely told to deal with it and to calm down when I simply asked why. We were appalled and embarrassed in front of many others in the gate boarding area. The gate agent in Houston has no place in customer service and was on some kind of a power trip. This surprised me with recent events. We are done with United now for many reasons"
Pros: "From the Take off location in Low Angeles the United personnel was terrific...my parents both have health issues and the wheelchair..go cart service was great..."
Cons: "When returning from Houston to LA...i appreciated that the wheelchair service was ready when they arrived....what i didn't like was that as we entered the elevator one of the workers made a comment to his partner that there was to much weight cause the elevator made a certain noise...but not as if he was concerned more jokingly...my mother is heavy set ...she and our party thought that was rude and unnecessary...they both looked at her...i was going to bring it to there attention, but what good would of it done...so please address it....there were 2 gentlemen...one pushing my father which was a Hispanic male and the other was a black male pushing mother...the one who made the comment was the Hispanic male....and another problem was the airplane was very warm..."
Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendant was GREAT!!!!"
Cons: "Again with the pretzels"
Cons: "My Flight was delayed various times, I was put on standby twice. When I looked for help I was left waiting at an empty united counter for half an hour until an employee decided to show up and offer no assistance. This has been the MOST unprofessional and stressful airline experience I have ever dealt with. Never wasting my time purchasing tickets from united again."
Pros: "The associate at the desk confused my flight for the next flight. I was given the wrong information and I watched my plane depart from the gate. Upon realizing that employees of that gate had left, and we're not coming back, I had to ask passing personnel about my flight to find that it left already and that I had already been rebooked without being notified. I now had to fly from Houston to Chicago to Nashville. The new flight boarded almost 2 hours later than expected, and upon landing in Chicago, I had already missed my connecting flight to Nashville by 35 minutes apparently. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Both flights were early landing which was nice everything moved smoothly"
Cons: "I didn't have an assigned seat in the 22nd flight so when they called I asked about they said wait for ur flight to be called so I went and Sat back down til they called me by name so almost missed my flight because the communication with the staff needs improvements"
Pros: "Smaller crowd"
Cons: "Had to rush from one terminal to another to just barely make boarding, there was a bad smell on the plane, and the staff was not friendly."
Pros: "I was moved to business class after an ordeal but the extra room was nice."
Cons: "I came down in a wheel chair and noticed my ticket had me in an exit row. When I asked to be moved, the women behind the counter had an attitude. Many of the customer waiting to board noticed. Next she started boarding the plain and I had 3 people ask if I needed to be pushed down and they would help. She barked at us that someone was coming. Once inside I asked for help getting my plug into the outlet because I wasn't able to make it fit. The crew member told me to keep trying. Because I never could get it in, my computer and phone wouldn't work. So I figured I would purchase one of the entertaining units but none was offered. It made for a very long flight. When leaving the plane, the other crew members were very helpful and even the wheel chair attending me was a delight. I was on flight 1977 from Houston to Seattle on November 7th. I usually fly twice a month for business. After my ordeal, I will use other airlines."
Pros: "Nothing actually except it was on time.. I do appreciate being able to bring my little dog on board with us although it cost alost as much as another seat. Thanks for letting us bring her."
Cons: "You put us all in very back seats and I am clostifobac.. It WAS HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE... LOuD AND NO RECLINING AND IN A CORNER.. OMG had to stand up most of way to keep from freaking out. And.. I HAD RESERVED MY SEATS..MAKES NO FRICKEN SENSE.. The tkt guy was rude when I told him I reserved our seats and now we are all 3 scattered everywhere alone. I think that's WHY HE PUT US IN THE VERY BACK BEING HATEFUL BECAUSE I WAS NOT HAPPY THAT UNITED DECIDED TO SEPARATE US FROM ROW I TO 30.. Also I am paying to bring my children to Mexico and I can't get points for it. Just sayin..."
Pros: "Finally got onto the plane and the rest of my experience was much better."
Cons: "When i got to Houston, the monitors were down, getting help from United was not easy, was passed off to many people and finally directed to the ticket counter. This was my first time in Houston and the gates were a bit confusing. I was in B area of airport for my tiny plane. I was told where to go with the wave of her hand and she did not want to be bothered more...got to the gated area and the agents there were way too busy chatting to be bothered. On my return trip home was better because i now knew the layout. I am sure my next trip will be improved."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, no overhead room, change of gate.... Kayak informed me of gate change and delayed flight easily 30 minutes prior to board change in the airport"
Pros: "The communication was great. The taking off and landing was great"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and I was not given a choice. They ran out of chicken and the only food they had left was pork that seemed like can food. Breakfast was dry croissant with yogurts."
Pros: "It was pretty cheap"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the pilot wasn't there. I feel like this sort of thing always happens with united. When I went to ask for help about my connecting flights I was treated like I was the one inconveniencing them. And the response I got was there's nothing we can do if you miss your connecting flight the only one going out today is at 10 pm but it's completely full already. I feel like it was the worst customer service and while I realize the lady I spoke to was probably not the one responsible for the captain being Mia she could have been more kind and more helpful by 100%"
Pros: "Crew and facilities were great. I will travel with you again."
Cons: "Again the seats were a little hard."
Cons: "My flight from IAH to LCH was delayed 5 TIMES while I was in the air from SEA. I ended up having to fly into Lafayette because otherwise I would have been stuck at the airport for 4 hours when my original layover was 1.5 hours."
Pros: "The crew saw me running to board and helped me and my daughter board the plane fast even though we got there late."
Cons: "The food and seats weren't great. The food was nasty for $10. The seats were uncomfortable due to we had a bigger man next to us who didn't allow any arm space at all and was uncomfortable the entire flight home."
Pros: "Nothing! Rude people, rude service, smaller plane size, crappy food with a smell!"
Cons: "Everything! Rude people, rude service, smaller plane size, crappy food with a smell! Attendant even went as far as saying "This is why I prefer working with first class" to his co worker, making reference about a passenger. And even went as far as saying "I really need a drink after this one" when the passenger overhead his first comment and asked him why he's being so rude to her family and no one else. Also didn't bring us or the passenger behind us any water when we asked, and when asked again, he rudely said "You will have to wait, can't you see I only have two hands. I haven't gotten to your row yet" which he had, and passed, which is why the man behind us mumbled to us, and we made a request too."
Pros: "Being emailed changes in my flight. Before the airport would even make an anouncement. Very fast notification system of changes in flight....really all the reminders and info from emails were so helpful."
Cons: "My card wouldn't register when I slid it to purchase entertainment on my flight from Denver to Houston. I was all the way in the back. 38A...the card reader doesn't work...or it was operator error. But I tried a lot. Even got out plastic and receipt paper to try those tricks..."
Pros: "It was just a mediocre domestic flight. Nothing special."
Cons: "No movies to watch for free."
Pros: "The flight going over"
Cons: "Everything was very good everyone was nice"
Pros: "Crew, Entertainment options, spacious seating"
Pros: "the ride was good"
Cons: "if you ask a stewardess if the airplane from Houston to Leon has a power source for the iPhones you get - scolded, "sir, this is not a 737". Really. Would I ask if i knew the particulars of all the plane sizes in your fleet. I asked because I needed one and do not study the amenities of each plane. Try some politeness with the "idiocy" of passengers slammed into a window seat by your automated seating computer. Next. To fill out the forms provide please offer a pen. You can put your name on it if you like, make it a gimme pen. I tried internet unsuccessfully, then joined United Club to get wifi, only to discover after too late its only at the airport; then tried go go wifi; only to discover we flew out of range, again no notice that there was a particular range - your inflight ap services are not friendly revealing the shortcomings of a purchase."
Cons: "My seat was changed within a half hour of my flight and I wasn't notified until right before I boarded and had to refresh my e-ticket. I wouldn't have waited for group 5, when in reality I was group 3. and then because of this I had to turn over my carryon because no room for group 5 carryons. Also I like to have an aisle seat, and was squished into a window seat."
