Pros: "Great crew. Old plane but comfy"

Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"

Pros: "I was fortunately upgraded to 1st class. The flight attendant was adequate. However, did not live up to the level of service I have come to expect."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The flight crew was great"
Cons: "I was left at a gate and wasn’t informed of the gate change. I was in a wheelchair and needed assistance. I was left and almost missed my flight. I arrived at the gate with 15 minutes before takeoff. The agent was very rude...she said my seat had been given away. After checking she was wrong."

Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late."

Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats was good :)"

Pros: "They were friendly and prompt, joked with us as they worked. The flight was smooth and on time"

Pros: "Good crew. Ample legroom."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by more than an hour."

Pros: "Crew was nice, food and entertainment was nice."
Cons: "Seats could’ve been more comfortable."

Cons: "Got nothing to drink in 4 hours. Crew was LAZY"

Pros: "I like flying Delta. Make you feel comfortable and at ease."

Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"

Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"

Cons: "The “newbies” were excited and loud, the main attendant was very.long.winded.every.single.time.she.spoke."

Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."

Cons: "Our brand new stroller was damaged on our flight."

Pros: "Great service from ground and flight crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable on today’s packed planes"

Pros: "No issues at all. Great service all around."

Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."

Pros: "An updated 717. A bit better"
Cons: "717"

Cons: "Small airplane, noissy"

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. No issues. Short flight. I was comfortable. The Biscoff and Ginger Ale was fine as always."
Cons: "No entertainment in the cheap seats. Free WiFi but I couldn’t connect to anything. But I had my Kindle..."

Pros: "Excellent communication, friendly staff, and timely flight."
Cons: "Overhead bin too small for expect carryons. Should offer free checked bag at check into reduce this delay."

Pros: "The kind bars"
Cons: "They gave a hard time checking in because I didn’t mark I had a lap child. I honestly looked and the website wasn’t clear. Then (Bob who checked me in in Tucson) didn’t bag my car seat. And it came super dirty. I’ve never had an airline not bag the caraway. Especially when I asked. Southwest is a better company to work with. Disappointed"

Pros: "ATL based crew was great. Exit row extra room as promised"
Cons: "Cheese snack purchased was not up to par. Grapes soft, almonds mealy and cheese dried out. Disappointing. New faster Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. Down for long stretches."

Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."

Pros: "Delta did a really good job as always. Cheaper, more comfortable, and a WAY better experience than Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Generally everything went smoothly on this leg of my trip."

Cons: "We left late, it was delayed then maintenance issues. Twice. Seating was very tight and uncomfortable, no movies or entertainment at all. U.S. flights are the worst. Even on short flights with aeromexico outside the U.S. you get movies and food. Zero stars for comfort, food and entertainment."

Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."

Pros: "Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Like ALL planes today, too crowded."

Pros: "Everything. I really loved that I could track where my checked luggage was, so when I arrived to my final destination I knew my bag was going to be there. The individual TV for my seat, so I could watch what I wanted. Having an USB port to charge my devices."
Cons: "Liked everything."

Pros: "Distaff who is very friendly and accommodating."

Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."

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: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Cons: "Flight attendant kept giving nasty looks to a little girl that has to keep going to the bathroom. She also served drinks and crossed over my face each time without even saying "Excuse me." She kept bumping me with the drink buggy and didn't say a word."

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"

Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."

Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."

Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "Wobbly, tight seating. Broken tv/entertainment system. No legroom. No warning before turbulence."

Pros: "All computers down. Cancelled flight. Spent night in airport. No accommodations. No food or drink."

Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We disliked that our baggage was lost and we do not have it two days later."

Pros: "food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "the flatbed seat is very narrow and not comfortable. The crew took a long time to remove plates after the meal was eaten."

Pros: "Arrived early. Helpful staff. Brough food and refreshments fast"
Cons: "Narrow seats in economy comfort"

Pros: "While the seating is narrow, the seats are well appointed and seem roomier than they are. Each seat has 110V and usb ports and a back of the seat movie and entertainment screen. Very good for a short flight to Atlanta"
Cons: "The 0.012 oz packet of tiny tiny pretzles"

Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."

Pros: "They changed my seat twice to accommodate mother's with children. Lost my window seat. Told me no more room for carry on bag. Was my only bag cause doesn't want to go to baggage claim. Cost me extra 45 mins claiming my bag."
Cons: "Not take away my carry on bag at gate (was not a size problem), don't change people's seats."

Pros: "Timely flight. Smooth and easy check in."

Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."
Cons: "Food options have gotten old as I have taken this trip many times for work, maybe mixing up the choices a bit."

Cons: "United Airlines were curt and unhelpful. The refused to allow me to board my flight unless I arrived at least 1 hour before takeoff. There were 57min until takeoff after I checked in at the counter. I have a trusted traveler card and TSA express."

Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."

Pros: "Supe easy flight."

Pros: "I was asleep in this flight & was not bothered during beverage service. This flight was only 2 & 1/2 hrs"

Pros: "The ease of boarding and plenty of room."

Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Entertainment system Completely broken for full duration of flight. Individual screen also broken as well as seat Broken 19C"

Pros: "- Crew was attentive."
Cons: "- Personal device entertainment was intermittently functional, had to use the poor onboard display for entertainment. - Internet access was $39.99 for the length of the trip, that price is ridiculous."

Pros: "This airplane was older and it seemed there was more leg room than on other planes I've ridden on. I'm 5'11 and my husband is 6'4. This was really appreciated. Nice attendants. Boarding was orderly the different groups waited in rows. Older gentleman greeted us with Merry Christmas as he took our tickets. Overall nice feeling."

Pros: "Very nice flight attendant and the landing was very smooth."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the waffle cookies, wish they had a couple of choices of snacks."

Pros: "Coustumer Service"

Cons: "None"

Cons: "Not enough people on hand to reroute customers. Some picky customers took too much time. After an hour they handed out phone number to call and make our own arrangements"

Pros: "The fact that no one was seated next to me"

Pros: "Everything worked out just fine"

Pros: "The captain of the plane was polite and kind."

And after all that, my bag did not make it on my connecting flight- or maybe it did but you guys texted me it didn't via your little app- and I had to go back for it mysef the next day becuase you would not deliver it or help me find it. wanted to be compensated for my long and horrible ordeal."

Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."

Pros: "Pros: flight landed early Boarding was easy. Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Was FAR too cold on the plane. The way bags were being distributed the large carry ons from under the plane after landing was unorganized and poorly planned. Tried to reschedule my flight, to do so is a cost of $200 not including the price difference in having to buy a new ticket. May not be flying United anymore"

Cons: "I had to go in and out of security 3 times to try to make alternate flight arrangements. The United staff was slow, unsympathetic and made several errors. I spent 7 hours in the airport due to errors."

Pros: "We landed."
Cons: "I sat in 3A. Almost every passenger getting onboard hit me with his or her bag. The guy across the aisle stepped on my foot. There simply was not enough room for people to move in the aisle."

Cons: "The plane was not prepared to travel; snacks and beverages were note available during our flight because someone forgot to stock the plane."

Cons: "The seats are tiny. If you drio something, you can't reach down to pick it up. The food was burnt. The app isn't downloadable in China. The overall experience makes me not want to ever fly United again."

Pros: "Not much, crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs, missed connection, had to spend day in limbo at DIA. Seats were rock hard on aircraft. I flew on UA because of the timing to my destination. 6 hours of travel time turned into a 13 hr experience. boo"

Cons: "Our flight arrived at LAX 20 minutes early so expected to get my connecting flight on time. Boy was I wrong, we sat inside the plane on the runway for over an hour. It was getting hot inside and people were getting upset about missing their connecting flights. We went around in circles on the runway, about 3 times. As people were getting agitated, so was the stewardess. Also people had to use the restroom, and the stewardess kept asking people to stay in there seats and she begin to lose her cool. What do you expect when your on the runway for over an hour. When people got to go, they got to go. So after finally arriving at the gate, "late" United did get me on another flight thru Alaska which was great. Will I fly United again, hmm I'm sure I will, One bad experience won't scratch them off my list, but I will choose other airlines first and United will be my last resort."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Staff is always friendly"
Cons: "We never boarded on time. Houston to Orlando was a nightmare."

Pros: "Got there on time with bags"
