They canceled my flight and keep me waiting in line many days. Now they haven’t called back

Korean short ribs were served! Delicious! Excellent alternate choices as well. Ribs were initially sold out and then i checked back and they were available again. Free, included with my ticket.

Pros: "I slept. It was amazing. They fed me cheese."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Booked an aisle seat. Received a middle seat on the day of the flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "What have been nice if I was told that seat availability was nonexistent. I tried checking in each day without any information such as give it up you suck and you’re going to get the worst seed no better how much you try to avoid it…"
Pros: "Great movie and entertainment selection!"
Cons: "The plane was really cold at night. I wish they could offer economy blankets and pillows"
Pros: "organized well staffed professional prices were reasonable free wi-fi and movies"
Cons: "Two rows up from us, I kid threw up all over the center aisle as we were pulling away from the gate. We returned to the gate to allow a cleaning crew to board and clean. However, the cleaning job was rushed and left remnants of the throw up behind which smelled the whole 2.5 hour flight. It really felt unsanitary and unsafe being that it’s unknown what caused the child to get sick. It very well could have been a stomach virus and could have infected the people in rows around the incident due to the mediocre cleaning job. I understand that it’s important to keep flights on-time, especially for connecting flights, but the safety of the passengers and their health should ALWAYS be the #1 priority."
Pros: "Everything was great! This was my first time flying Alaska Air and I could not have had a better trip! Everything ran according to schedule, I was comfortable during the flight, slept the entire time, staff was great!"
Cons: "The woman making announcements did not specifically announce the duration of the flight as we were departing. I was able to figure it out on the map option on the screen, but I would've liked to hear it verbally. Only suggestion I would have is an announcement on the plane for which baggage claim belt our luggage would come out of. I may not have heard it though, if there was an announcement. It was not difficult at all to figure out once I was in the baggage claim area, however if this was known while we were still on the flight, I prefer to know this info!"
Pros: "Highly recommend premium seating on this flight, 4 extra inches of leg room make a big difference. Delicious food that was decently priced and a large assortment of beverages. Left early and landed early, which was helpful because I had a 44 minute layover between 2 flights."
Pros: "Lots of room for bags and legs. The outlet is easy to reach. And there are 3 bathrooms."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very efficient and helpful. One attendant was able to help me get entertainment app to work by advising me to turn off privacy settings on my phone. Good flight. They had a wheelchair ready for me on landing, not because I requested one but because they noted I had used one to change planes. Really nice"
Cons: "Couldnt get seat to recline."
Cons: "2+h delay"
Cons: "Boston landed at Gates C Run to catch flight at Gate 'N" Stupid....but who gives a shi***** right?"
Pros: "On time--early even. Planes seemed newer and cleaner than other airlines we usually fly. Friendly attendants. Very fast baggage claim. Despite it being more of a pain to get in and out ofBoston (vs. Manchester), we would fly them again."
Cons: "Boarding seems to take longer than other airlines."
Pros: "Short time to wait for my flight to Panama"
Cons: "To small, person seat next to me was to tall can't very fits"
Pros: "flight was delayed and crew kept us informed at all times with clear explanations"
Cons: "didn't know about wi-fi entertainment until i was on the flight, and then i couldn't get the app."
Pros: "ALWAYS ON TIME"
Cons: "I couldn't sleep ... too cramped."
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Breakfast"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Food to pricey"
Pros: "I missed my flight, but staff in Seattle helped me get on the next one with minimal fuss. Not sure if this is always the case, but very pleased with a situation that could have been very stressful."
Pros: "Nice and easy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "From booking to the actual flight everyone made the process easy."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent! Friendly!"
Pros: "Fairly pleasant other than things listed below."
Cons: "Seats couldn't recline and had little leg room, no complimentary entertainment, no complimentary food."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, seat was comfortable. I appreciate that food and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "One particular flight attendant purposely ignored me when I tried to ask for cream and sugar for my coffee which she did not offer when handing out drinks. Then she looked right at me twice as I tried to give her my garbage which she was collecting, but she ignored me again and left me holding my garbage until a different flight attendant came much later and took it without incident. It made me wonder if it was because I looked Asian- she was helpful and polite to the white women next to me. I was polite and was not being difficult in any way. I'm half white, but was often treated like this in Illinois when I was growing up. She should have been professional and if she had I would have rated the trip as excellent."
Pros: "smooth, quiet flight, as comfortable as a red eye can be in economy. i like that they bring you water and are accessible to give you more whenever you need it."
Cons: "The new seat backs are very uncomfortable to put your head against"
Pros: "Crew was nice, checkin was fine, flight was good, food was reasonably priced for Economy, tablets given out to passengers with movies, etc"
Cons: "2 hour delay leaving Boston and 2 hour delay leaving Seattle"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "No blanket, pillow, entertainment, or real food for a cross-country red eye. was my first time flying and was disappointed."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and seemed happy."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline. We were moved to an over-wing exit, and the seats don't lay back there. In fact, it looked as though none of the seats in Economy could be reclined. This was an awful discovery on an over-night flight. The plane was a Boeing 737-900, which seemed like a new, clean and quiet piece of equipment, but Economy had Recaro seats that were fixed in the upright position. I'll try to avoid this in the future."
Cons: "Check in staff at Assistance counters either had problems with their computers or couldn't understand reservations. We had a pet for which we had paid for round trip reservation months ago, yet agent took quite awhile to reconcile our reservations. We stood in line for nearly a half hour during which their were very long lines at each check in point and at least one or two agents left on breaks while the lines were still very long. At Burbank the agents were fast, accurate and there were almost no waiting. The flight itself was great and the flight attendants were excellent; but not impressed at all with check in at Seattle."
Pros: "The crew was great. They were pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "We were on row 33 d,e, & f. Seats d & e would not recline. The button on seat d was broken. As annoying as that was, there were 3 unaccompanied minors sitting in front of us. Two of them were fine. The third one on the isle seat was up and down, in and out of his seat the majority of the flight. I couldn't sleep. This was my second flight of the day after staying in Seattle for 7 hours waiting between my flights. The kid was loud and it seemed like the crew couldn't correct him. He just did as he pleased. I wasn't the only passenger who had a problem with him. And apparently the crew did as well. I paid a lot of money for that flight and he ruined it for me. If they are going to fly children like that, the crew should be able to correct them so the other passengers can have a pleasant flight."
Pros: "The staff was nice."
Cons: "Cramped seats, chicken sandwich was mediocre, and I would have appreciated a free movie player for the 2 hours delay, but the 75$ will make up for that."
Cons: "Would like to have a meal and not have to pay for it on a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "Crew only good part! Really amazing crew!!!! Entertainment wasn't horrible"
Cons: "Worst airplane! No room at all!!! Flying year round and to date one of the most uncomfortable flights"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "All flights were on time"
Cons: "Seat assignments differed from what i had requested. Boarding process was very slow. Seats in planes were very cramped. No entertainment. No snacks other than basic beverage offering. Felt like a cattle car."
Pros: "Nice ppl and comfortable plane, great service all around"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Delay on the front in. When we finally arrived in Seattle, they didn't even have the jetway pulled up due to a miscommunication. This required many more minutes of waiting."
Pros: "The customer service got us on the next available flight. Didn't charge us for our baggage (which they could have). Staff were helpful and realized that we were bone tired (after being awake for over 30 hours). Flight was easy. Crew was nice. Easy access to baggage when we got to PDX. I love Alaska Airlines!"
Cons: "Nothing. They got it all right."
Pros: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."
Pros: "Delayed an hour and half due to maintenance issues. Changed gates twice!"
Cons: "Passenger in window seat took 11/2 seats. Flight was full so there was no sense complaining Very uncomfortable on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "I picked that flight because it was the only direct flight that fit my schedule. Wish I could take JetBlue."
Cons: "Seat is so small and uncomfortable. Flight attendant somehow only offered the two guys next to me the whole can of soda but just ignored me. I found it very odd. She had many cans of coke...It's not that I care about a 50 cents of a soda but I felt totally discriminated. I don't want to pull the minority card, but just didn't make sense to me when she did that. I know it's tedious but it really hurt my first experience with this airline. I will avoid flying with them in the future."
Pros: "Got home"
Cons: "Turned around 20" in flight, and board a new plane. Therefore arrived 2 and 1/2 hrs later than scheduled. As recompense they give a $100 discount on next flight, which will probably never be used as they have so few flights from Boston. Practically not a useful thing for me."
Pros: "Nothing. Our trip was changed without notice."
Cons: "We originally booked our flight back from Maui because it had a 13 hour layover And we were visiting our friends in Seattle for the day for their housewarming party. Well much to our surprise we get to the airport in Maui to leave and by sure luck because we had to get there early for our rentL car return , realized our flight was boarding in 30 minutes. It got bumped up by 4 hours with absolutely no notification. Also our nice long layover that we had purposely planned was now only 4 hours. So not only did we almost miss our first flight but we had to miss our friends party. We were never notified. I checked my spam mail, junk mail, and regular Mail. Alaska airlines did nothing for us as far as compensation for our aggravation. We usually love using kayak but if this is what will be happening from now on we will be taking our business elsewhere."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew"
Pros: "On the ground ..TSA said I needed a new boarding pass..3 kiosck wouldn't. Work. Friendly re sent me to Alaska desk where they printed me a new boarding pass but when I went to TSA. I had no passport. Sooooo..back to t he Alaska desk and a wonderful rep named Diane helped me hunt through all my "stuff"...then began talking to all reps helping process passengers. She never gave up. And found my passport at the desk that had made me a new boarding pass. I was so upset I couldn't think straight but she did!, many thanks to this kind lady."
Cons: "The charges on the entertainment ststem using a personal device semmed high compared to other carruers which provide the same service included in the price of the ticket. The hot food choice seems like a nice idea poorly executed."

Great service from check in through the flight. All are friendly. The flight was on time.

Pros: "The crew was great. The food was fine. It was a very positive experience relative to expectations."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning are tedious experiences; this is a problem across the board and I don't see it changing drastically anytime soon. Fifteen-to-seventeen-hour flights are brutal and very uncomfortable. These are not South African Airlines' problems but industry-wide issues. If i could have taken a train to Johannesburg, i would have."
Cons: "My moms flight was horrible, the fight was more than 3 hours delayed. And employees didn’t help her with info at all."
Cons: "Flight was 3 1/2 hours delayed. In-flight entertainment system didn’t function. They didn’t perform a beverage/snack service. Very poor overall. Disappointing."
Pros: "Glad they had apple juice."
Cons: "Leg room."
Cons: "There was 3 hour delay where we were stuck sitting the plane. The engines wouldn't start. This followed a 45 minute delay before boarding. When we landed in Boston, there was a 15 minute delay to our gate. All of that could have been better."
Pros: "The flight was fast and safe!"
Cons: "Tv could’ve worked and the seats should have more space"
Pros: "Good snacks, friendly flight attendants, efficient boarding"
Cons: "Flight was quiet delayed and there was no communication in the gate area about the reason for the delay until the end. Flight also kept saying it would take off at 2:22 and we weren’t even boarded at that point. Would have appreciated an updated departure time and clear and regular communication"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. I know these things happen but what a bummer. Also for the entertainment, the map / location channel is terrible. It’s mostly ads. It wasn’t worth it to watch and that was a real bummer."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Big delay and the gate was changed at least three times !!!"
Pros: "Live TV good Temperature in cabin good Felt safe"
Cons: "Delayed 20 mins due to weather Unhealthy choice of snacks"
Pros: "Great flight, crew, weather, custoner service and on-time!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It’s basic/budget so expectations are low"
Cons: "Delays. Crew calling the same boarding group again after they’d already boarded (pay attention!)"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "As am speaking to you am stuck in Boston waiting for a flight the flight in New York was delayed so I missed the flight and Boston so now I have to wait for 3 valuable our and I have an interview I don’t even know if I can make it.i woke up at 3 am to be on time but you people kept me off time."
Pros: "Nice trip affordable price"
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and cheerful"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "It comes with priority security lane - flew by everyone online...seat was so spacious....totoally worth it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was delayed almost 4 hours and I lost a meeting that I had in Boston"
Pros: "L'espace dans l'avion - c'est la 1ère fois que j'en ai autant en classe éco ! Le personnel de bord, vraiment adorable, drôle et à l'écoute"
Cons: "Pas de distraction et collation limitée. Mais c'est vraiment un détail !"
Cons: "Flight from Boston to salt lake City was delayed by more than an hour"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay for a taxi to LGA after not being allowed to board and then after rushing having the 10:45 flight delayed twice. Has ruined all plans for today and it's not just about bad weather. Sloppy service Jet Blue!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great at looking after us and we had plenty of legroom in coach!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was a bit limited and there was no wi-fi."
Pros: "The JetBlue staff are always so accommodating, polite, and easy-going. It felt so good to be going home!"
Pros: "Good tv channels"
Cons: "Poor overall organization. Flight delay multiple times. Slow service."
Pros: "The crew was great, and so was a JetBlue pilot dead-heading in the seat next to me. I liked the space in the MoreSpace seat I paid for. I relieved that the upgrade seat came with boarding in the first group. Some airlines you pay for the seat, but you're still group 3 or 4 and, meaning all sorts of anxiety about the most miserable part of any flight, the dreaded fight for the overhead bins, wondering it you'll have to check the bag and then wait for it at the destination. Thank you for removing that."
Cons: "Tv was broken"
Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"
Pros: "Nice crew.."
Cons: "I have flown with Jet Blue a couple of times and their flight are ALWAYS delayed. Very inept, their crew is not really rude but not friendly at all."
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "I did appreciate how apologetic the flight crew was and eventually we were able to board our flight. I also appreciated the credit that Jetblue gave me for the inconvienence. That showed sensitivity on their part that was refreshing. I know it is the holidays so its busy, and unexpected situations do arise during these times especially, so at least the credit provided some positive relief to the disappointment."
Cons: "I understand that maintaince is a necessary and usual part of flying planes every day, that said, I had booked the earlier flight for the purpose and intention of getting into Boston earlier to spend more time with my family but arriving 5 hours later than expected was disappointing. Needless to say, the traffic getting out of Boston at 4pm on a Tuesday only added insult to injury. This was also the second time that I had an underwhelming experience overall flying Jetblue so that added to the disappointment."
Cons: "Choice of snacks limited to either a tiny bag of cheese nips or a tiny bag of cookies. A tiny bag of nuts would have been better! Or at least a slightly larger bag."
Pros: "On time flights with punctual boarding and early arrival Polite flight attendants Pilots pointed out areas of interest during the flight Comfortable take off and landing Unlimited snacks and beverages, even on shorter flights Free entertainment, even on shorter flights"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hrs. Not the airline's fault but waited in the help line for over an hr before the agent told me there was no earlier flight I could be placed on - she was incorrect. Pointed out that there was another flight that had also been delayed and therefore hadn't left yet - she agreed, put me on standby. At the gate, the boarding crew did not know what they were doing. The plane was 20% empty but crew made situation very hectic by giving standby passengers seats, taking them away, and then realizing there was actually enough room on the plane. Crew was friendly but incompetent in terms of problem solving."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed two hours without notifications or updates and they didn't so much as offer a cookie or a bottle of water. We explained that we had to catch an international flight leaving from Boston and they were not the least bit concerned."
Cons: "Screen didn't work well so I couldn't choose what I wanted to watch. Also, the volume kept bumping all the way up all of a sudden and hurting my ears so had to turn it off. No real food for sale."
Cons: "Endless delays and extremely shitty boarding staff."
Pros: "The flight was quick and the crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "We left half an hour late from JFK."
Cons: "Flight left more than 3 hours late. poor communication with passengers to explain till when and why the flight was late"
Pros: "Great airline. Comfortable seats, nice flight crew. And night snacks. Overall I would fly this airline again."
Pros: "We got to our final destination."
Cons: "We needed to wait for "just a few minutes." The Captain said. Then, no other communication at all and we left over an hour late for a 45-minute flight, no explanation. I hate when they leave you in the dark and aren't upfront. The connection from Emirates to JetBlue we had was almost impossible. Two healthy adults, arriving on time in NYC with two hours to make a connection. With walking as fast as possible and not even going to the bathroom, we barely made the flight. Customs. Change terminals. Go through security again. ridiculous."
Pros: "I liked the spacious seating of course"
Cons: "I was disappointed in the boarding, I traveled with my young daughter and infant son and when they announced those who require additional time, handicap assistance,etc I proceeded to board then all these other folks also jumped up skipping me and my children when it was not their turn. And the gate people allowed them to do so I had to be the one to say excuse me we were here 1st. On top of that when we landed back in NY I heard my stroller get tossed and discovered when I got home it was broke. So upset!!!"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Good boarding process. Comfortable seats with decent leg space."
Cons: "Consistently delayed."
Cons: "Rude at check in. Lost luggage. Terrible!"
Pros: "The crew and boarding process was fine just took too long to get to that process."
Cons: "A 5 hour delay for a NYC to BOS flight, started at 2 hours and ended up being pushed later and later. The flight was taken off the Departure board for awhile and the airport staff couldn't figure out if it was cancelled or not."
Cons: "Entertainment system on some flights needs upgrade. The earphones are not working."
Cons: "This flight was wicked delayed due to "gale force" winds… been waiting for a long time for our luggage -- still waiting... this was a small plane, too!"

Old plane. Zero leg room. Dour staff. Turn lighting on repeatedly on redeye - spend half the time making useless announcements. Impossible to sleep even if you were in 1st class.

I had to cancel my trip because of COVID delta. My brother who I visiting got scared and didn’t want me to visit. I paid for insurance that you provided through your site. Allianz hidden in terms that canceling because of COVID fear isn’t covered. I was never offered insurance through delta on your site witch I would have bought. Delta isn’t even giving me a credit for a flight and keep my money. What a scam and I’m very disappointed in the services I received.

Boarding was on time (if not a little early). The flight was unfortunately not properly catered for snack boxes in main cabin. This is likely a one off instance, but it’s a long flight for no food options other than pretzels and Biscoffs. Service was attentive and friendly. This particular flight offered Delta’s DeltaOne lay flat first class seats. Would highly recommend. Flight left on time and arrived early!

It would have been nice to be served some water

The 2 hour delayed and the seats were very uncomfortable for economy

1/2 late for no reason

The terminal on my ticket was different than the gate number. We went through security and had to take a 15 min shuttle to a different terminal. Why not just go through security there? There were also no attendants at the gate to discuss seat assignments. My husband and I didn’t have seats together. Try on board crew was great, but the airport experience was lacking.

Pros: "The seats were very good. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We had a connection in Detroit. The flight from Seattle to Detroit arrived about 30 minutes late, and we barely made the connection. Apparently Delta had not told the Detroit-Boston flight to wait a few minutes for us. We did make the connection, but we arrived at the gate with no seat assignment (we had been bumped the day before from our original flight because of a mechanical problem) as the plane was loading. Had we missed the flight, we would have had to spend the night in Detroit and go to Boston the next day. Delta should have told the gate agent that we were coming."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "Wifi"
Pros: "There were 12 delays. No help and I slept overnight in the airport. Worst experience I will never fly delta again"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and personable. Beverage service was consistent and efficient. Entertainment and free WiFi messaging were great perks."
Cons: "The positives don’t even come close to offsetting the misery of Delta’s seats. I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so cramped and uncomfortable. I’m not an abnormally large man - 6 feet 200 lbs - and there was no room for my legs or my shoulders in an “upgraded economy” seat. I fly weekly for work on another major airline, and only took this one in a crunch. But I am quite certain this was my last Delta flight and I’ll be advising others similarly. The service and entertainment aren’t sufficient to mask an awful seat configuration."
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Was able to recline back and had excellent leg room. Area looked clean and organized."
Cons: "Captain didn't say much before or during the flight like most do. Not a big deal-it was a short flight."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Cons: "Haven't made it yet... still on standby in later flight"
Pros: "The flight was good. It crashed zero times. I was pleased not to check my carry-on bags. They were attentive in calling for wheelchair assistance for me."
Cons: "Seats are consistently too small."
Pros: "No food or entertainment on short flight"
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row and the bathroom smell was hard to deal with."
Cons: "Missed our connection due to not enough time between connecting flights, Change of plans due to missed connection not anywhere near each other, one hour spent on the The tarmac... No earbuds available, No drink or food service... Worst flight experience ever"
Pros: "I didn't like much about this flight."
Cons: "Flight left late. When we landed the sky bridge was broken so we had to walk outside, which isn't a big deal but it took a while sitting on the runway for the stairs to come. Then we proceeded to baggage claim and waited a few minutes and one of our 2 bags was there. The crew member then said "that's everything. If you're missing bags come see us." Well about 5 people on a small flight had to see them. My bag was stuck in JFK. I was told id have to come back to the airport tomorrow. At this point id been traveling for close to 24 hours. Im not a happy camper. I usually fly JetBlue and this has never happened with them. Delta acted like its a normal thing with them. I paid 25 dollars to check each bag. How can both my bags not reach their final destination together and how come this seems like a normal procedure for Delta. I paid you for a service and now I have to drive back to the airport or wait for you at home to deliver my bags whenever Delta feels like it. I probably won't fly Delta again unless I absolutely have to."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Pros: "Efficient hop to Boston"
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Pros: "Friendly crew, ok seats"
Cons: "Was not possible to even request a coffee"
Pros: "I like the fact that I was able to get on this"
Cons: "Delta is completely messed up. My luggage was supposed to travel with me to Boston. But it didn't. Delta waisted my time. Horrible customer su"
Pros: "Good selection of movies available, but right half of touch screen was broken..."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed almost 30 minutes for "baggage," but Delta still managed to leave many passengers' luggage in Amsterdam. Desk agent guaranteed baggage delivery within 24 hours. 4 days and 3 airports later, my bag reached my hotel. Fly Air France instead. The food is better and they won't lose your luggage."
Pros: "Overall.. It was Ok exept for the boarding experience described bellow."
Cons: "I bought the tickets through a third party website. Therefore, our seats were not assigned until the last minute, and once they were assigned, they were published in a screen with our initials. This practice was discriminatory and violateed our rights for privacy, We even felt that it could put our security in risk. I believe that one thing is not to allow clients to choose seats in advace because they bought the ticket through a third party website, and another thing is to discriminate an treat those clients as "second class" people. When I asked the person in the counter for the reasons behind this practice, she could only say it was Delta's policy to do it that way. In that sense I was very surprised with the practice because i bought an Airfrance ticket (not a Delta one) and I had travelled before in both airlines (Airfrance and Delta) and I had never experienced a situation like the one described. I strongly believe that Delta needs to review this practice."

No flight

On time

Great flight

Quick and easy. Chairs are hard but short flight, so no problem. Crew smiled and were nice.

Flight was delayed

It was quick, plane was loaded and the service on board was ok

Our flight was delayed by 7 hours

Those corn kernel snacks were too hard for my dentures

Red eye from LAX. The most uncomfortable First Class seats I have ever experienced. No blankets or pillows. One bag of chip-like objects and two beverages for the entire flight. It felt very stingy.

This flight was intense. It was overcrowded, people weren’t following Covid guidelines. And in general, was a mess due to young kids causing a lot of noise and disturbance. I ended up with a headache the entire flight because of it.

Pros: "crew was great and moved me further up in the plane to make a tight connection"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Everything about my trip was exceptional!"
Pros: "yes"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Flight diverted. Poor communication"
Cons: "Realistically explain options of what may happen due to weather issues"
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "Nothing, we had to deplane."
Cons: "This flight was completely messed up and ultimately ruined my connection and subsequent travel plans. We were told there was a 30 minute delay because of the pilot and shortly after we were told to deplane. I had to cancel. rebook with another airline while my bag traveled to Boston"
Pros: "The flight was crowded, but what can you expect? Turbulence prevented beverage service. The flight arrived early but had to wait to land."
Pros: "Did not experience food or entertainment"
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Efforts to get us to Philadelphia"
Cons: "Got to Philly - no one there - rushed 2 concourses and plane still there with daughter on-board. They gave away our seats, told us we would not get on, would not get our baggage and would not get put up in a hotel. Because of the NBA draft - had to travel 60 miles to New Jersey for a hotel. Lost a day, lost 2 tours, endured additional hotel costs...and the attendant made it clear she was on overtime and we just needed to move on. American Airlines is too big and consolidation of airlines has not been good for the public."
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Cons: "Six “10 min delays” that led to a 1 hr plus delay"
Cons: "Check in for AA at DCA was terrible. Everything else was great."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "It was a good flight back to DC."
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Food, OK legroom, complimentary wine & beer on a US carrier"
Cons: "Barely functioning ancient touchscreen system"
Pros: "Allowed us to pre-order with our daughter who needed our support."
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "It did not crash"
Cons: "Delays, baggage loss, how the Airline dealt with both."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "It's fine, you know what to expect."
Cons: "No entertainment; no TVs, no music."
Pros: "- It was on time"
Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Cons: "Allowed me to take earlier flight"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Cons: "I thought I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight. I booked on Alaska Airlines website. I picked seats. I missed the part in the email I received later saying I didn't have seats. I never received a check in notification email. It took forever to check in at the airport because the the kiosk took a while to pull up my reservation after asking for additional information. I got stuck with middle seats on 5 hour plus flights when I had actually checked to confirm I could still select a window seat before I booked and did indeed select window seats when I booked."
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Pros: "No food served. Late take off. Seats cramped. Forced to carry on bags, then asked to check for free, if they don't fit. That forces everyone to fight to get on the plane, to get the best place for their luggage. Why not remove the $25 fee on the checking the first bag?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 15 minutes. We had well over an hour to go have dinner, so we did. While we were gone, they moved our flight to another gate and left no sign behind-just an empty gate. Nobody, including AA staff at another counter would tell us whether we missed our flight. A passenger getting on another flight overheard us and told us what happened. When we found the right gate, I told the attendant that they should have left a notice on the digital board at the previous gate. He became very effeminate and gave me a piece of his mind, since he had "personally" made the announcement. It didn't matter to him that we weren't there to hear it. That was our problem. The flight was delayed even longer after we boarded because of a fuel gauge issue, and when a few passengers moved about to use the restroom or get belongings out of their luggage, the female attendant on board scolded everyone like school children. We finally got home, an hour and a half late."
Cons: "The flight attendant chastised my husband loudly when doing a pre check before take off. She reached over and yanked his charger our of the socket and stood over him and reprimanded him for not being on airplane mode. The passengers in front were turning around while the passengers behind were laughing. It was excessive and inappropriate. The passengers behind him had tray tables down and video games out and when she addressed them it was in a respectful manner, but when addressing my husband, it was disrespectful and unprofessional. Seemed to be discrimination as she did not treat any other passengers like this. I wish I would have captured this on video to share with American Airlines as I do not think they would condone her behavior. Her name was Marlene and she needs additional training regarding customer service."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 hours before my flight as suggested (especially during busy summer travel), boarded the plane, and waited on the plane for about 55 minutes for 4 people who were late to make the flight. This was announced to us as we sat down. I've only ever been late once on a flight (as a teenager) and the plane was still at the terminal but the gate was closed.... I was told there was no way they were opening the doors for me. Since then, I make it a point to be early and if necessary, have plenty of time between connections because of delays. I was shocked waiting almost the same time as the length of the flight for a few people who were late. They could have been placed on a later flight (I saw there were plenty of flights). Also, why trouble the majority of travelers for a small minority? I haven't flown American in a while because of other past experiences and spent a lot of time looking at delay history for this particular flight before giving AA another try. I am once again reminded of why I avoid traveling AA and why other people speak poorly of it. PS In the future, give travelers timely, honest updates so that people aren't siting in their seats staring at the door for an hour waiting for someone to walk in so we can take off. I don't know who these people were, how they were connected, and what kind of money they paid you guys but it was all around unprofessional. I know I wasn't the only unhappy traveler. Please get your act together American, you used to be great."
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
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.)"

My flight was delayed, then we couldn’t leave due to some issues and when I landed my luggage was left behind! Not the experience I was looking for after taking this flight.

Pros: "Crew was warm and friendly"
Pros: "amazing crew, very clean"
Pros: "did not take this flight - never made it to newark"
Pros: "There was a wheel chair waiting for me at each gate, but in Newark, the attendant took my next boarding pass and dissapeared for about 15 minutes, and left me near the gangway. I was starting to panic. My travel companion was not happy and started to vent. It ewas quite tense for awhile."
Cons: "The seats were cramped. I boarded first because of a broken ankle and a leg boot that turns into a child's car seat when I'm done with it. I was able to work the boot off when I had a leg cramp, but didn't have enough room to put it back on."
Pros: "plane flew on time"
Cons: "no longer allow roll on bags for free for economy. Didn't accept my KTN so couldn't use PreCheck. Couldn't get boarding pass on my phone before heading to airport. May be the last time I use United. Stone-age. Poor"
Cons: "Significant delay-no weather issues, didn't make sense."
Pros: "It was quick and on time."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The captain managed to get us almost with no turbulence through bumpy weather. The seats are as narrow as the standard, but the pitch is fine."
Cons: "If you want to watch anything on the screens, you have to pay Direct TV for it."
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Horrible seating, small, cramped, ergonomically impossible"
Cons: "Still have not left."
Cons: "No leg rooom"
Pros: "We arrived -finally"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding - multiple delays, then they eventually moved us forward by swapping planes but didn't communicate well Swapped many seats (including mine) despite fact flight attendant said new plane was identical - I got bumped out of Economy Plus Had to then do manual roll call of passengers due to all the confusion No flight attendant service - understandable since it was choppy but just made a bad afternoon worse"
Pros: "Got an earlier flight direct to Boston."
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and hard working"
Cons: "The fact that flight leaves gate on time and sits on tarmc for 15 minutes. This would be listec as on time departure but is a fraud. United has too few machines that work too slowly to tag bags and get tickets. On ground United staff rude and unpleasant. They are a disgrace to their stockholders! Also Newark Airport is decrepit and the United Terminal is run down with poor services that arte ovrpriced and dirty."
Pros: "crew very warm and welcoming"
Cons: "no leg space (I am six feet tall)"
Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "i hated the expirience i would request a refund they charged me 250 $ for a 1 hour flight and got me there after 5 hours"
Cons: "i hated the experience i would request a refund they charged me 250 $ for a 1 hour flight and got me there after 5 hours"
Pros: "I got home safe."
Cons: "The customer service was mediocre. The selection of complementary beverage was minimal compared to other airlines. The staff are disgruntled and sometimes rude. There was always some sort of mechanical problems with the plane going to Puerto Plata and coming back. On the way to DR we had to divert to Miami because of problems with Navigation. They made us wait seven hours and gave us a voucher for food at the last minute. People had already bought food. I would not recommend United to none of my associates."
Cons: "One hour delayed departure after an already too long 3.5 hour layover."
Pros: "Boarding process did not take long"
Cons: "Rough landing"
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about the flight"
Cons: "Layover in New Jersey was horrible. My flight was delayed 4x, and arrived at my destination 4 hours behind schedule. When I asked customer service for more information regarding my flight, the staff was rude, did not offer a resolution or give an explanation for the delay. A little customer service could have went a long way to make the situation better. I am overall not pleased with the customer service I received and was disappointed with the delay. I don't think I will ever fly united again due to the customer service."
Cons: "Flight kept being delayed. Gate agents were rude and not helpful. Acted like I was crazy for being worried I would miss connection. After flight was changed 5 times try finally changed my flight and I had to wait 5 hours at airport."
Cons: "All of the restaurants in the airport have changed to this "high-end" bistros. No fast food anywhere except the premade wraps and stuff at the kiosks. If you need food fast don't try to sit down and eat. My sandwich took 30 minutes to come out. Food was ok."
Pros: "Flight was oversold as usual but no one got kicked off"
Pros: "Flight was not overbooked and I had a wonderful empty seat in the middle so that I could sit in the window"
Cons: "There was almost no legroom. Having to pay for entertainment for a 45 min flight."
Pros: "Made it safely from point A to point B."
Cons: "Two hour delay with no reason given. Weather wasn't an issue."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly there wasn't really anything to complain about"
Cons: "On my way back from New Jersey the flight gates changed without me knowing so I had to rush to my proper gate. But other than that it was fine"
Pros: "Enough time to walk from gate to gate."
Cons: "Had to pay for wifi while waiting."
Pros: "nothing!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and had to fend for ourselves to get to boston. Ended up getting to boston at 12:30 am when I was supposed to get there at 1 pm. Will try and get a voucher for this awful trip."
Pros: "Good pilot landed nicely in rough weather"
Cons: "Last minute Gate change and delays."
Cons: "Delayed then changed gates with five minutes until boarding with the new gate a half a mile away. Then once onboard we were delayed again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight never happened. My flight was delayed 3 times before being cancelled and united could not book me on another flight until the following day. They would not put me in a hotel, pay for another flight or even get me a taxi to a hotel I could stay at over night. I had to book a last minute flight through another airline at my own expense"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Took way too long to determine that a new plane was needed, took way too long to get the plane ready, and reloaded and in the air. Could have driven and been half way there from Newark to Boston in the time all this took. Not ok, with not even an apology or any type of compensation for leaving 3 hours late."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and went an extra mile to help a team secure their 1st place trophy that was almost 4 feet tall!!"
Cons: "The flight was late. Emergency isle decent space"
Pros: "Direct tv"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The flight crew and airport workers did a fine job, and, once in the air, there were no problems."
Cons: "The weather at the destination airport did not permit us to land there, so the crew de-planed everyone before taking off. We re-boarded after about an hour and proceeded to take off and land without any problems."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "It was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Missed a whole day with grandchildren"
Cons: "Flight was delayed signficantly, multiple times. Minimal information from staff, fortunately Kayak kept me updated."
Cons: "The plan was delayed an hour because of the airline. So uncalled for. I ended up really late to work that night. I could understand if there were weather delays but delays due to the airline are unacceptable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn't event get drinks out to the whole cabin from Newark to Boston. Paying for Internet was ridiculous for all the other fees I had to pay. There was NOTHING to o on the plane at all with out paying for it."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "This flight was very short the entertainment was non existent, I dealt with a hour delay which made me arrive 3 hours later to where my final destination was. I chose the connecting flight so I could leave at the earliest possible flight. Due to the delay I ended up arriving in Boston way later and had to take the last bus and boat to get to Martha's Vineyard my destination. its just frustrating planning it all out only to have your plans almost ruined because of a delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed Arrived two hours late No food or beverages Staff stayed seated"
Pros: "Snack was nice even for a short plane. Every seat having a television was very night."
Cons: "Being 6 foot I couldn't fit my legs in the seats they were so tightly packed on the plane. Even another inch of leg room would have been great. Thankfully it was only a 40 minute flight because by the end of it my legs and feet were numb and I was irritated at the space allowed."
Cons: "Arrived well before the recommended 1 hour in advance for the domestic flight. Lines to move through their security wrapped around the terminal on multiple floors. Called customer service for assistance and they reported there was nothing they could do. Reminded them that it is their responsibility to manage these types of issues such as telling passenger to arrive 2 hours ahead if they have been aware of this chronic issue. They told me they had no way of contacting the airline staff at the airport to assist us Completely unprofessional, poor customer care and inefficient. Will not be flying with United out of Newark NJ again. If it weren't for the friendly passenger in line who let us move ahead we would have missed the flight. Just made it before the gate to the aircraft closed."
Pros: "Short flight and ran on time."
Cons: "While waiting at Newark on my layover, there was nobody at the gate to assist with seating assignment (which had not been assigned as my flight was oversold)... I didn't get my seat until stepping onto the plane/bridge. While there was nobody available to even tell us what was going on regarding seat assignments until 10 minutes before boarding, there were 4-6 United employees sitting in chairs right next to our gate chit chatting (being paid to do absolutely nothing), who couldn't even tell us what was going on (what a waste of resources)... Even the manager took 15 minutes to carefully set up the line walkways coming in to customer service... like it had never been done before and she had to reinvent the wheel."
