Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "ages they don’t came"
Pros: "Some crew members were really nice"
Cons: "First plane broken; they got another one that came in...with electrical problems!!! Arrived over three hours late and nearly missed my cruise. No excuse! AA could check their aircraft the night before, mine was the first flight out. #AAwful flight."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Pros: "Service top notch"
Cons: "First flight was cancelled and alternate flight was delayed. USB charging port didn’t work. Very disappointed."
Pros: "My flight to Frankfurt was a disaster. Delays at LGA caused me to miss the connection. Two very nice AA customer service phone staff attempted to help by booking me on a Lufthansa/United flight out of JFK that same evening. HOWEVER, I got to JFK only to discover I had NOT been ticketed. A lengthy call to AA resulted a a lame apology -“we don’t do that” they claimed, but the had previously! And had booked me, so what the heck was this??? I’m still fuming!"
Cons: "Lies! They rebooked me on a Lufthansa flight out of JFK and I got there only to discover “they had made a mistake.” Utter garbage excuses."
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "The employees were nice. That's about it for positive words."
Cons: "As we were a few minutes from our scheduled boarding, the flight was canceled. The reason we were given was the weather, but the weather was fine in Chicago and it was fine in New York. No other flights were canceled, so the weather excuse didn't hold up. They wouldn't put me on another flight that day, so I ended up leaving the next morning on the first flight out but I was still late for work. They didn't seem to be very accommodating or apologetic and I didn't even offer compensation to those who had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight out. C'mon AA. Step it up! I would think that if you cancel a flight, you should help your customers get home the same day. Do whatever you can. I don't think you did whatever you could for most of us on that flight."
Pros: "Poor attitude. Seemed as though they were doing us a favor serving us. Did not pick up garbage for at least an hour. Absolutely zero personality"
Cons: "I do not like flying American. Still sitting and waiting on my flight to Waco"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight"
Cons: "The plane supposedly was running out of fuel, which I've never heard of such thing. So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Cons: "It's AA, never again"
Pros: "Pulled from get on time. Short hold on runway. Easy landing."
Cons: "Still arriving in Washington where we have no gate. Being on time stinks because you still sit on runway. AT the destination. I would focus on quicker turn around and less accommodation of highly variable flight times in tight NE corridor"
Cons: "There was an incident on plane between passenger and flight attendant, where a drink was spilled on me and ruined my dress and shoes."
Cons: "My flight was scheduled for 5.37pm, but came to the airport thinking that I could get an earlier flight to Chicago and I was there at 1pm, requested for standby status, did not get it because am not platinum of diamond member, asked for $75.00, of course I didn't want to pay and stayed in the airport thinking that my flight would be on time, but it was delayed and delayed and took off at last, saw O'Hare airport but it looks like the pilot could not land it because he did not get the clearance, but as a passenger, I saw the flight going around and around the Ohare area, at least 6 times, then after landing taxing took for ever. I WILL TRY NOT TO FLY IN AA AGAIN."
Cons: "When the pilot took off at LGA he said "everyone here is trying to take off at the same time" so we'd be delayed by 30 min. Not once was there a mention of any other reason. By the time we got to DC I had JUST missed my connecting flight. It was listed nowhere on the departures screen and I realized I had to take an outdoor bus to the other half of the "c" terminal which was very confusing. I got there and had missed the connecting flight and stand in line for 20 min for someone to tell me that I would be stuck in DC overnight. At this point rain had started pouring and they told me that because my mishap was due to weather they would provide no meal or hotel voucher. Weather was not the issue and I was stuck in DC overnight by myself and not compensated for hotels or meals."
Pros: "Not enough luggage space for regular number of passengers on board"
Pros: "Gate was changed no one notified us and my family missedthe flight . one hou rextra wait. No apologies was extended."
Pros: "Was able to switch to a different flight as a standby"
Cons: "The 7:00 flight was delayed for an hour and then delayed for another 2. Meanwhile, the 8:00 flight was called for boarding. It was very frustrating. Those of us who got in line quickly were able to fly standby on the 8:00 flight. I felt the airline did not treat us honestly. I believe the reasons for the delays were known long before the delays were communicated to passengers. (For example, there was a new delay announcement at 8:00 for a flight scheduled to leave at 7:58). Had we been informed earlier, people could have made alternate plans if they wanted to do so (e.g. Rent a car or reschedule for the next day.)"
Cons: "Not their fault, but stuck on plane in NY because boston was having weather. Just felt like we could have been informed sooner than we were."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times which was eventually confirmed to take off at 9:15pm. There were no updates from the desk leading up to 9:15pm - we were subsequently informed that the crew for the flight was at a different terminal in the airport and would arrive within 40 minutes. There was no update to the display board of the anticipated boarding time or arrival. Limited and poor communication overall. Once ready to board, the desk attendants insisted passengers check their bags because it would be "faster" since it wasn't certain if there would be sufficient overhead space. There was extra overhead space and we ended up having to wait 45 minutes for our luggage (small backpacks) upon arriving at midnight thanks to this desk attendant's short-sighted decision making. I will avoid American Airlines at all costs after this experience."
Pros: "Very quick and easy boarding, very comfortable seating."
Cons: "The crew didn't share any information about connecting flights, even when we sat on the plane for 45 minutes after landing. Along with six people, we had to run through Dallas to make our connecting flight. I overheard the crew say they no longer can share connecting flight info, and why was a connecting flight under the same airline at a new terminal with no flexibility? It was very stressful."
Cons: "The airport is not organized well and a handful of us passengers had to take a shuttle over to the other side of the airport. This by the way, was not written on the boards or announced so we were confused for a good 20 minutes trying to figure out where to go and what was happening."
Cons: "Even though my wife and I booked our flight together at the same time we were seated apart by the airline for no good reason. In fact we each had alone passengers seated next to each of us."
Pros: "Having had a rough day of 10 hours of travel, arrived at Ticket booth to check in when I DROPPED MY HOT SOUP!! Mr. SAM B Told me not to worry, have a seat and proceeded to buy me another cup of soup and gave me a GIANT hug!! It's an understatement to say he surpassed my service expectations! he should be commended. This random act of service and kindness was witnessed by many other passengers. I"
Cons: "Very poor snacks and food for purchase"
Pros: "The time was good, good service"
Cons: "Seats too close together, not enough leg room for me."
Pros: "the trip was very smooth"
Cons: "delayed but really just due to weather, sigh."
Pros: "Two of the cabin crew were very nice and helpful. The rest were curt seemed annoyed to be working."
Cons: "I sat in an exit row and the passanger next to me was too large for his seat, the result being my having to lean away from him the entire flight. Quite uncomfortable for over 4 hrs!"
Pros: "I liked the helpful staff I was able to contact via phone. They were able to get things worked out for me so I could get home easily while trying to change flights multiple times. The flight staff once on board was apologetic and communicative with everyone to keep people calm amongst the delays and cancellation of the original flight."
Cons: "The desk attendant at the airport was unhelpful and was missing for almost two hours while we were delayed. There was no explanation as to why and it wasn't until after a 5.5 hour delay that she was able to tell us there was work being done on the plane. It was a full flight, and many people were confused and had no one to ask questions. The flight was delayed at least six times before it was cancelled and we were booked on another flight. I'm happy we were on a safe plane to fly back, but I'm unhappy with how the situation was handled. Zero communication and ultimately, I could have driven the entire way back faster that day than I could have via American Airlines. I missed a scheduled important appointment with my doctor that I cannot reschedule now. There were two other flights going to Columbus that day that people could have transferred to but as I said, there was no help at the desk to inform anyone what to do so talking on the phone to representative was the best option and that was if you could even get through that day. Delays are delays, and if it's to keep people safe, then that's fine because I'd love to be safe and make it back. However, the way it was handled made it the worst experience I've ever had with any airline. Zero communication, zero help, an entire plane of angry and frustrated people... The only thing that saved the day was another AA attendant at another gate that was able to help me properly as well as most people on my flight. I will most likely be looking at other airlines as options in the future for flying because AA has been on a steady decline lately with my experiences."
Pros: "It got me there in good time once it was in the air."
Cons: "The flight departed about an hour an a half late, no fault of the airline I suppose. But there was some turbulence on a part of the trip. The flight attendendants were given the nod to start serving but by the time they got up the flight was on its glide path down. So we had the whole wait time and flight with no refreshments."
Pros: "Air crew was fine. Ground crew less so. 15 minute wait to open the gate."
Pros: "The time the flight left. Also the lady checking in tickets was good about making sure people didn't get away with being too many bags on or too big of roller bags. Aircraft is new and the music stations were good."
Cons: "Had to wait twenty mins on the Tarmac to take off. Boarding was a mess. In group 2 people were squeezing in and out of aisle because they had to go all the way to the back to put their bag up. Then they stood in the row because they couldn't move up and then when the other people had to get in their seats it caused chaos. This was probably one of the worst boarding experiences I've ever come across. Flight attendants seemed feed up with the bs too. Overall just bad."
Pros: "Slept like a log Gate staff were nice Lounge was very average poor food and beverage. Slow internet. Outdated furnishings. Not worth the access fee."
Cons: "Smallish seats and overhead storage Onboard Staff had brisque manner"
Pros: "nice plane and seating was much more comfortable then the 738."
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Typical American. They start with a 75 minute delay because of crew problems. Then we sit at gate for 30 minutes while they "fix" something. Then they push out and cant start the plane so they cancel. I'm learning to hate American"
Pros: "Terminal changed at LaGuardia and we had to take a bus to another terminal. The staff were extremely kind and helpful with our items and transportation. The large size of the water cup."
Cons: "I didn't like that there were dirty used food wrappers in seat pocket in front of me. The fellow sitting in front of me was in the bulkhead seat, yet reclined his chair all the way leaving me very little space. I really wish flight attendants would ask travelers to be considerate and not recline their seats during there welcome speech. Or even ask if the person being squished is ok. There were no snacks offered. Drinks were not offered till at least an hour into flight. My first flight was canceled. Kayak let me know, American never notified me!"
Pros: "It got cancelled!"
Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Key: don't fly into a thunderstorm. Not a good way to arrive for a vacation after hearing people screaming and seeing emergency personnel carry bleeding passengers off the flight. No one did anything wrong, and staff was very helpful, but lesson here is avoid flights into cities with major thunderstorms -- mo matter what the cost to change flights."
Cons: "Just because the flight was full.. They checked in my luggage but put on the wrong tag. I have no change clothes for more than 24 hours. Hopefully, they'll deliver to me by today. But I am not holding my breath on it"
Pros: "That we arrived on time to RDU."
Cons: "It left 20 minutes late from LGA and we had a connecting flight in Philadelphia. We had to run really fast and made it in the last minute."
Cons: "Never made it. My flights were canceled. So I don't even think this review counts."
Pros: "The actual plane crew and flight."
Cons: "The flight changed gates and terminals as well as times and the staff knew nothing about it. Staff on the phone and in person had poor attitude."
Pros: "I really like the AC outlet at the seats. I land at my destination not worried that my phone is about to die. It is such a relief."
Cons: "Everyone shuffling their bags into the plane is just crazy. Not much the airlines can do, but it just slows down EVERYTHING."
Cons: "Was surprised to see 0 social distancing in the plane. It was packed and not everyone had masks. Should be mandatory."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "airport hassles"
Cons: "I'm upset with kayak for sending a survey before I was off the plane!"

Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Met expectations"
Pros: "The plane was clean and crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Delayed departure with no explanation. Other passengers clogged up the overhead bins with small bags, purses and containers of to-go food. Causing me to place my carry on in an overhead bin multiple aisles behind my seat which made for a cluster trying to board and de board."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Offer at least water at no charge."
Cons: "They could have not been 8hrs late"
Cons: "They would not refund the charge for a carry on I made in error. I did not have a carry on. Would not give me info as to where I could take my complaint so I guess I took it here. The guy at the desk was HORRIBLE"
Pros: "Crew was good, quite friendly and helpful. Seats are a bit uncomfortable but what airline isn't."
Cons: "Both flights of this trip were delayed over an hour with no explanation. Major impact was my transportation arrangements on the return were impacted and forced a rental expense."
Pros: "Allegiant knows how to get people off and back on the plane ASAP. The last few flights I have taken we left early and arrived earlier than planned because of this. Crew was friendly. I like the fact the flights are direct and no layovers at airports."
Cons: "I cancelled this flight and somehow it doesn’t show in your records and now I cant find the cancellation.. I am not in Orlando.. last time I will use Kayak."
Pros: "The plane didnt crash :) Friendly attendants."
Cons: "NO WIFI. Flights are delayed often, what looked like a brand spanking new plane had the most uncomfortable seats ever, felt like sitting on wood in the exit row. You get what you pay for though."
Pros: "Crew friendly and professional"
Cons: "Everything is extra, even water or soda. Seats are narrow so glad im not a heavier person"
Pros: "Early out and early in."
Pros: "Friendly pilot."

Pros: "Passengers were fun"
Cons: "Need entertainment"
Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Have to pay $45 for a carry-on bag. Seats were uncomfortable and have to pay for all snacks and drinks including water."
Pros: "Crew likes to have fun with their passengers -- making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. It's a budget airline so you have to pay for things like refreshments and snacks (also, carryons and if you want you boarding pass printed at the airport) -- but don't let that sway you! All it takes is a little prior organization (we packed a couple of sandwiches and printed our passes at home, plus packed very light). Overall a great experience."
Cons: "Ground personnel"
Pros: "The staff and crew are extremely polite and focused on good service."
Cons: "The seats on the Allegiant MD-80 don't recline AND the space between one row and the next is EXTREMELY tight. Much tighter than I have seen in an airline in a while."
Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."
Pros: "Flight was on time, the cabin attendants were courteous, and the flight captain kept us informed."
Pros: "I’m 5’10- tall for a woman but average height I’d say overall. I was so cramped in that seat that next time I will choose another airline to get more rom."
Cons: "No free water?! That’s just cruel considering the flight was over 2 hours."
Pros: "Boarding at the new Austin South terminal was a breeze!"
Cons: "It's ridiculous to make passengers keep their personal items on the floor when most of the overhead lockers are empty. Ridiculous and dangerous."
Cons: "All of the hidden fees. I was initially charged more than $200 over the price I was quoted on Kayak.com and then had to pay an extra $45 to bring 1 carry-on each. I do not plan to use Kayak.com again for these reasons and will not recommend this site to anyone"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Not even water provided on flight. I miss amenities."
Pros: "More room in seats. Low prices Nice staff."
Cons: "NO DRINKS!! not even water is complementary!! NO SNACKS!! Not even pretzels!! WOW! You have to pay for your carry ons. You have to pay for your checked bag ($50!) You are only allowed 40# in your checked in without an additional fee."
Pros: "other airline seats are concave, forcing my back in to a painful posture. I'm 5'2", 120 lbs, so I'm not the normal body; but I just can't imagine who finds concave comfortable. Thank you Allegiant for a chair with a more-flat back."
Cons: "I was surprised with the carryon fee and wondered if I would have to pay fees to use the toilet. I didn't use it, so I don't know."
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "45 minute delay my 1st flight and a 2 hour delay on the 2nd. It's become so late so consistently that I don't even bother to arrive early anymore."
Cons: "Not enough options and what was available was pricey."
Pros: "Everything they could control went very well."
Cons: "The flight had a lot of turbulence, but that's not their fault. I thought the pullout handled the situation well."
Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."
Pros: "GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR A FIRST TIME FLYER"
Pros: "Everything was super easy with Allegiant. This was our second time flying with this airline, and even though you feel like you get nickeled and dimed to death, the overall price is still much lower than any other airline. The plane was clean and the crew, both ways were awesome and in-tune with their passengers. Don't be fooled by the pricing, this is really an outstanding airline, we will fly again with Allegiant!"
Pros: "The price"
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."
Cons: "Seats were made of stone."
Cons: "WiFi wouldn’t process and no outlet’s for power. These work as standard on delta or JetBlue"
Pros: "There was room for 26+ standby passengers to board. Power outlets & more leg room in Economy Plus."
Cons: "No reclining! No screens, power outlets didn’t work well, not enough room for carryon baggage. No food other than pretzels. Drinks took a long time."
Cons: "Forcing people to pay for wifi is ridiculous, this was a cross country flight. The united app was super confusing to use. Don't plan on using this airline again, unless I have no other option."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight due to delay and thus had to spend unneccessary money for a hotel, as well as an additional plane ticket to Cusco. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "Worst airline and customer service in the world."
Pros: "free movies on the flight with the united app"
Cons: "The flight attendant was late delaying boarding 20 minutes. Once they started, people were lining up to board. This is a normal behavior however, there employee decided to stop boarding because she said people were crowding. she stop boarding for another 20 minutes. Now, this was a large flight and there wasn't enough room for everyone to stand off to the side. She was rude and there was no reason for this especially when the flight attendant was already late. The plane was delayed 45 minutes due to this"
Pros: "They got me out early, before expected storm."
Cons: "Refused to delay connecting flight in Denver even though severL of where already on ground in delayed flight coming into Denver. Albuquerque flght was still at gate when I got there, having run through airport along with several others. We were refused admission to plane despite delay being United's fault. Unacceptable! I will avoid flying United in the future whenever possible"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Too many people, not enough room for luggage"
Cons: "O'Hare airport. Bad signage to economy parking."
Cons: "Bumped my head getting into the seat!!!!! The coffee machine was broken hence there was no coffee - this was a 10 am flight and the choice was a cool drink - Very poor."
Cons: "The snacks were horrible. And the fact you get a sip of a drink makes no sense."
Pros: "I had a blood coat on my leg 2 months before my flight and the pain and swelling sometimes were unbearable, United was extremely accommodating, kind and courteous from the check in all the way to helping me retrieve my luggage in a wheel chair and that alone ease my pain, not having to do any extra effort was a huge relief on my legs. Definitely booking again with United and Kayak"
Cons: "TSA were less than basic, making me go up and down twice trough two different metal detectors and a body scan machine, then asking me to put both my hands above my head while standing up in the body scanner, a guy in a wheel chair who could only stand with a cane, these guys are barbaric but that's not the airlines fault."
Pros: "they gave us the whole can to drink on the flight for drinks"
Cons: "the stupid old white man at baggage check in in New YOrk who was EXTREMELY rude and made me HATE flying with UNited"
Pros: "I liked that I made it to my destination in time and didn't miss connecting flight."
Cons: "What I didn't like it that I almost missed my connecting flight, and TSA decided to pick out my package for inspection and stole important items out of it. I am filing a claim"
Pros: "How they take care us in the plane I love!!"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "the stuffs were mean and helpless,your luggage fee was so high ,only give one checked bag for free,this is international airline and you charged the first for 100 dollars and the second one for 200dollars and you let me,a poor little girl felt lonely in the airport and found it nowhere to complain,I missed two flights in one day and the air attendant 's attitude were bad,this was the worst experience ever in my life,I won't recommend United airlines to any of my friends"
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Two flights, two delays."
Pros: "Flights took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Flight home was moved an hour early when I checked in. Gate attendant offered me a $500 voucher for taking the next flight...and then ended up putting me on the early flight anyway and gate checking my luggage. I really wish I got both the voucher AND to hold onto my carry-on. And then, leg room on that flight was so bad. I am only 6ft tall and was squished in like a sardine."
Pros: "The pilots at the front were friendly as we departed, thanking the passengers."
Cons: "The line up process at LaGuardia was unorganized based on the preassigned number boarding system. There was no space to organize 1-5 as assigned on the boarding passes. Going and coming from LaGuardia, the flight gate was changed multiple times, then there was at least an hour and a half delay on the ground and an hour in the plane. We had to reroute to Neward because of air traffic situations, but the ground crew was not ready nor efficient in helping the throngs of people find transportation or understand the process The crew was sour, and when simply asked for a spoon, the guy said, "later" and of course, he never brought one. There was no friendliness or cordiality from these people. We were like cattle to them. I have never seen it so bad. I have watched what used to be a great airline with Continental, decline to a consistently subpar experience with United. I will look for other airlines to fly in the future. My experiences with Southwest have been much better in the last two years."
Pros: "Pilot kept us well informed with a very friendly voice."
Pros: "left on time without fanfare."
Cons: "internet was weak."
Pros: "I arrived safe and sound. A United ticket clerk at Chicago O'Hare was super nice but didn't really help my situation. I appreciated her effort and warm demeanor."
Cons: "After booking the flight I noticed that there was a 25 minute window between the time my flight was scheduled to land in my connecting city and the departure time of my connecting flight. Aware that most airline close the gate door and the flight 10 to 15 minutes before take off and the fact that it takes about 15 minutes to get off a flight after the aircraft door open, I was sure that this would be a problem. Also if I then had to change terminals that would be another 20 minutes. Long story short, I thought this was poor customer service on United's side. I called united the day before my flight and customer service rep assured me that it would be the same terminal and that these times are customary on the part of United. I then also mentioned this at the gate as well and talked to a very kind Flight Attendant. Everyone worked to put me at easy about this. My flight left 20 minutes late but made the time up while in the air. We landed I got off the flight in record time and asked a gate attendant to check my flight status. The flight and gate had been closed. They then had be go talk with a very kind woman at the customer service desk. She then moved me to a AA flight. She said "now the fate closes in 10 minutes so you probably won't make it but run". "You've got to be kidding me" i thought but she was so nice so I didn't question it... But I RAN!!! I didn't make it and AA customer service rep put me on the last flight out. I say in the airport for an extra 4 hours and ate lots of food I'm sure is slowly killing me as we speak. Happy to be safe and at home."
Pros: "Checking in at ticket counter was easy, service was accomdating for mom w disability. Love the option abt free ck bag for carryon. Very happy with change of flight option when original lay over was canceled. Love the text message update"
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on due to lack of overhead space. Scarce food selection Forced checked carry on turned up scratched/damaged"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which would cause me to miss my connecting flight. The agent on the phone changed my itinerary but sent me to the wrong airport. By the time I got there, there wasn't any other flights that I could take so I ended up having to take a connecting flight the next day. I wanted a hotel voucher but was sent running around to no avail. There was no compensation of any sort and the agents were helpless"
Pros: "We had a safe flight"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed by an hour and 20 min. I arrived at Dallas for my connector to Austin, 25 min before my departure time. I could have made it, however, the plane taxi'd at the gate for at least 10 min, then the door wouldn't open. When I finally got off, I sprinted to my next gate, thinking they may hold it for a few minutes as there were many people connecting on that flight to Austin, but instead they did the opposite. When I arrived there were other people waiting who had arrived 10 min before the departure time (also from a delayed flight) and the doors were already closed. There was no representative at the gate to even tell us this, until we had waited over 10 min, and when he arrived, he said the doors were closed, and all of us were too late. Why would you close the doors early, knowing that other connectors were coming in. Additionally, on my return trip, my flight was cancelled, and I never received a reason for its cancellation, just an automatic rebooking that put me back in New York a day late. I had to be on the phone for an hour, rebooking a flight that United didn’t have. They instead put me on an American airlines flight last minute that I barely made. This wouldn’t have been so bad if this wasn’t the second time this exact scenario occurred within two months, when my siblings attempted to return home for the Christmas holidays. United is terrible."
Cons: "Delayed four hours."
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding process was quick and easy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which result in me barely making my connecting flight"
Pros: "I had to cancel the flight but they did not help me to make another reservation without charging $200 extra even thou I had dr. letter."
Cons: "The boarding process took forever, plane was delayed, crew was unfriendly while stuck on runway for at least an hour, plane was very uncomfortable and dirty. ONE flight attendant was sweet and brought water, the rest treated us like we were school children and not customers!"
Pros: "Had to switch airports from Laguardia to newark. Terrible & stressful"
Pros: "Flight was quick and on time!"
Cons: "Nothing just the usual discomfort of flying not United's fault"
Pros: "Everything about the flight! I loved it! Short yet great"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed. In bound flight very late."
Pros: "The crew was helpful & friendly. The seat was comfortable. Love the free WiFi... Next time kindly serve some free snacks."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Flight left early, missed connection!"
Pros: "The price for round trip fare was the cheapest 1400 miles I've flown. On my way to a funeral, and I needed the savings."
Cons: "After two hours of delays, we were told we were better off transferring to another flight, in another terminal, by another airline. only available time was 5+ hours after the expected departure of the original flight. The original flight ended up departin 1.5 hours prior to the flight we were transferred to."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "- 4+ hour delay - Poor communication between gate agents, online and onsite staff with conflicting and incomplete updates. - United should have just canceled the flight instead of perpetually delaying it. - Alternate flights suggested by staff were 4 hours later. I had to push for other carrier flights. I had to push for gate agent to explore partners at other terminal easy to navigate to at LGA. - At the core a mechanical issue that could have been screened for during routing maintenance. - Channels for getting credit cumbersome and timely. Why can't a gate agent or representative on 800# issue a credit?"
Pros: "Flight was as expected and on time."
Cons: "Food was kinda snacky and lame."
Pros: "Had no problem connecting to my next flight, which was only a few gates down"
Cons: "Was told I HAD to check my bag and pay the luggage fee, only to board the plane with several other passengers carrying the same size bag as mine and storing them in the overhead compartments!"
Pros: "The help I got from one of your reps after calling was good after I made sure she knew I needed to be there on time. First I felt like she was low balling me and offering shitty options, then she got more helpful when I showed some anger.. Don't think that should be necessary!"
Cons: "The help I got from one of your reps after calling was good after I made sure she knew I needed to be there on time. First I felt like she was low balling me and offering shitty options, then she got more helpful when I showed some anger.. Don't think that should be necessary!"
Cons: "United Airlines gave away my seat without my permission. They gave it to keep a family together, which was ok except they never asked me if it was ok. Even when I got my ticket scanned right before boarding, no one told me about the change. I think the crew singled me out purely because I'm Asian so they thought I wouldn't say anything. They also gave away my aisle seat so I had to sit in a more crammed row and window seat. No compensation was offered, boarding took forever, and I had to check in my bag because they ran out of overhead compartment room. This was a horrid experience."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late and I missed my connecting flight. Luckily I was able to get a flight the same night, others had to get a hotel at their own expense since United claimed the lateness was a result of air traffic controllers. But we left late because the plane arrived late in Laguardia. I don't see how both the plane arriving to Laguardia late and departing from Laguardia late is due to air traffic controllers. No entertainment for a cross country flight and the entertainment from united wifi wouldn't work as well."
Pros: "The crew at the gate was extremely helpful. I arrived at the airport early and was allowed to catch an earlier flight home on standby."
Cons: "Passengers filled the overhead compartments with small items that could have been placed under the seats. Many people had to check their bags at the gate."
