Flight canceled by airline. No refunds, no ability to talk to customer service. Terrible!
Pros: "good noise cancellation"
Cons: "staff Attitude could be better. Also no milk for toddlers but free vine for people to get drunk, be loud on overnight flight, then snore and stink drunk. My table was all in some snort when I opened it to put my meal on. Dirty lavatory floors."
Pros: "ON time Flight"
Cons: "Departing on time."
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "HOT. The plane was 90% of the time. It would tease you just long enough to start to fall asleep, then bam! You wake up in a sweat. It was 9.5 of 10 hours of a low boil sweat. The most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Apparently a known issue, including the condensation leaks on people sitting next to the window. (Guessing that's why the A/C was left off.) Also one of the bathrooms was quickly out of service. Another would auto flush if you tried to sit down. And another the green light was on whether occupied/locked or not. So 3 of 4 in Economy had at least some kind of malfunction. The power tinting windows never responded to the buttons - assumed they were on master override. Finally, the seats were pretty compact. I would describe World Traveler on BA (aka Economy) more like the new compact Basic Economy offered on other carriers. Seats were very small and leg room consumed by some kind of service boxes. I'm hoping to all things holy that our return flight is actually an American Air flight instead of BA direct. Really afraid of another 10+ hours of torture."
Cons: "They gave 2 veggie meals to mu big strapping men seat mates and the ignored me entirely!"
Pros: "the crew was accommodating"
Cons: "i was asked to pay to check in my luggage :("
Pros: "Not being squeezed into a claustrophobic window seat."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "The quality of the plane was good and the movies were good. Also the blanket and pillow was nice."
Cons: "I was really cramped and couldn’t recline because the guy behind me was too tall and it amashes his legs, so I had to be uncomfortable for the entire flight."
Cons: "They’re not too helpful in helping me get on a flight to my final destination."
Pros: "Staff that served us."
Cons: "By the time our turn came there was no more choice in food."
Pros: "The title says it all"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "The delay made me miss my connections, and cost me a day at a festival I paid a lot of money for and planned 6 months around. the options given by staff were not too helpful"
Pros: "Excellent customer service thank you"
Pros: "Funny safety video. Good beer and wine. Lots of movie choices. Never a line to the toilets."
Cons: "Cramped seating area, but I did have an extra seat next to me."
Cons: "very very short layover at London, had to run to the gate and almost didn’t make it. Only one of our two bags made it to Dublin. Not happy at all. Not sure if I will be booking with kayak again."
Pros: "Punctuality Happy demeanor of cabin crew Meal and Wine Service to standard class passengers Safety Video!! :-)"
Cons: "the actual meal was not very good. I would prefer an option of dried fruit and nuts and a big water"
Cons: "My husband and I paid a combined $100 to reserve seats on our flight from LAX to London. When we got to check-in at LAX airport we did not get our reserved seats. Everything had been changed around. We did not even have seats next to each other. Upon complaining at arrival in London (there was no time at LAX to deal with this, as usual that airport was one chaotic mess) we were given a British Airways business card with a phone number that did not work/had been disconnected. I would like to get the $100 reservation fee back. Thank you."
Pros: "Th flight was late, we lost our connection flight, they put us on another flight which arrived two hours later in a different airport!"
Pros: "Good attitudes"
Pros: "The woman at the check in desk worked patiently with us until she found us an alternate route. We werare given food and hotel vouchers to get us through the night."
Cons: "Our British Airways flight was downgraded to a smaller airplane and we were not informed of this until we were in an hour in to waiting in a very long line to check in at the airport. We were unable to check in online the night before but not told why, and then we were unable to check in at the electronic kiosk at the airport but also not told way. When we got into the very confused and long line at the check-in desk 2.5 hours before our scheduled departure, we waited for almost an hour before anybody told us what was going on. They then told us that the flight has been downgraded to a smaller airplane, and that the agents were individually looking into rerouting passengers as they came up to the desk. Yeah sure does that the flight would not leave until everything was resolved and that people who had purchased their flights earlier would have priority. We then waited another 1.5 hours before it was our turn to speak to an agent at the desk. She told us that we would definitely not be getting on the flight because we had not checked in in time, which we had been unable to do. She then worked on rerouting us and offered us what sounded like an excellent flight option direct to Amsterdam on KLM the following day, however when we went to KLM to check in for the flight they said it was overbooked and we could go standby but we would not be guaranteed seats. We went back to her again and she eventually booked us on a Delta flight through Salt Lake City leaving the following day. We are currently in Salt Lake awaiting our flight to Amsterdam. This gets us to Amsterdam 12 hours after planned, Shortening our vacation with friends and causing us to miss events that have been planned. We are very upset that there was no information provided to us earlier and that British Airways did not, as is customary, first seek volunteers to take later flights, before bumping people off due to a lack of seats on their available plane. Instead they gave priority to people that had paid more money to check in with priority. We booked our flights 3 1/2 months ahead of time and feel that we were grossly AND unnecessarily put out by the actions and lack of communication throughout the process with British Airways."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, but after I took another flight, I was notified that my flight had merely been postponed for half an hour. By this time, I'd already missed my train in Frankfurt, creating hours of extra travel time and huge inconvenience after an already long trip from the US. British Airways said the cancellation had been due to weather, but skies were clear from London to Frankfurt. I'll never fly BA again."
Cons: "The boarding started late (30 min before supposed departure), took much longer than expected because we needed to use the bus. Then we waited another hour on the tarmac. We were told it would be only a few minutes. Then we were told we would make up for the lost time, but that wasn't true and an additional half hour was lost on a holding pattern at LHR. We missed our connection. The instructions were unclear on what to do (contradiction between flight attendants and ground crew). By the time we picked up new boarding passes, we had already missed that flight as well and had to go to the customer service, which took another 45 min. Flight entertainment didn't work the first hour. There was a high pitched beeping sound during the whole flight (not the regular airplane noise)."
Cons: "I thought the seats we were not comfortable"
Pros: "Modern plane, great crew"
Cons: "Free seat next to me, kept getting filled by unassigned passengers, cramping my situation. One old lady took the seat & was snoring."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment Serbians beverages"
Cons: "There is no - zero - comfortable way to sit in economy on this plane. I'm a six foot tall man and getting in and out of the seats just to use the restroom (which were the smallest I've ever seen on any passenger jet), was nearly impossible. I will never fly this class on an Airbus 380 again."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!!!"
Cons: "No leg room!"
Pros: "Loved the wide selection of movies to watch, as well as being served two meals."
Cons: "I wished the seats reclined more. The flight would have been near perfect then!"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. Food was quite good. Crew were helpful."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The air plane ran out of fuel we had to divert to San Jose we waited two hours because of weather and because the paperwork had the wrong pilots name so they wouldn't let the plane fly. Therefore we waited in the airport all night because neither British airways or American Airlines would help us We waited here all night with no sleep no one would give us a hotel or a meal we have now will be getting into London 24 hours later than planned and we will be out about $1000 in hotels in two hours we had booked that were non-cancelable . Multiple phone calls to British airline Waze and to American Airlines for all of the helpful"
Cons: "Announcing gate information only 45 minutes before departure and having only 25 minutes to get there before gate closing is very inconvenient and nerve wracking."
Pros: "Crew is super hospitable and nice"
Cons: "They lost my luggage after I asked when I checked it in LA and when I boarded in SD"
Pros: "The A380 is quiet and is less suceptible to turbulence than smaller planes. Climate was comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are close together and there wasn't enough legroom for me, I'm 6'2". The seat pockets are a. It small and it was hard to fit my iPad Pro."
Pros: "The staff is friendly and were genuinely doing their best withwhat they had"
Cons: "The check in / baggage drop off took too long. There were only two workers in that section and for maybe arpund 10-20 mins there was only 1 person helping everyone. It was very frustrating, esp when there were 3 people working in the world club section when that line has fewer people in the first place. I suggest having the world club staff taking some of the regular customers and alternating with the world club members"
Pros: "Everything was fine until I ate my breakfast."
Cons: "My special kosher meal cause me to immediately have stomach cramps and estreme nausea - within 20 min of eating it. I had horrible pains and could not use the bathroom due to landing. Upon landing I ran to the use the restroom and the staff promised to keep an eye on my bags. When I exited the bathroom after being violently ill, no one was on the plane except the cleaning staff, and no one was keeping an eye on my bags. I found my purse unzipped. Luckily nothing seems to be stolen. I proceeded to vomit and have food poisoning symptoms the next few hours while waiting for my connecting flight to Rome. I vomited through the entire flight to Rome - no one seemed particularly concerned. No one asked if I needed a hospital. British Air would not take a report about the food poisoning onsite. Nothing was done to help me change my flights to avoid flying so sick or make any helpful suggestions whatsoever."
Cons: "smallest coach I have ever been in. very squished and I was next to my wife at 95 lb and a skinny young man who took no room at all. I am only 5'9" 170. But thats how the flights get so cheep"
Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Cons: "The overhead luggage bins near my seat on my LAX-LHR flight were too small to accomodate my European standard carry-on, which meant that another passenger and I had to store our luggage three sections away before there was an empty bin big enough. I understand the need for different sized bins, especially since our seats were up against the galley, but I felt a little unsupported by the crew. They basically just told us, "walk down far enough and you'll find something"--this was true but not exactly helpful. It's a small thing, but I think maybe if you warned passengers sitting in seats with smaller bins ahead of time, that would help make things smoother, since another stressor was that we didn't find places for our luggage until it was almost time for takeoff."
Cons: "Since you now have to pay for additional luggage, which I have always done in the past, I find it increasing infuriating that when boarding the plane to store my carry on luggage I have not been able to store this appropriately, I am led to believe as a paying customer I should not have to store my carry on luggage by my feet because the overhead cabin is not available to me. ."
Cons: "It was actually a flight operated by American Airlines, and I am done with this company. Not comfortable, rude staff and more than average food."
Pros: "We paid extra ($260) to sit on top.The arrangement was nice. I had a panic attack because I felt stifled and my asthma was bad because the lady in front of me put new perfume on each time she went to the restroom. Staff helped keep me on the galley and talked to me to keep me calm. The stewardess was from Spain, but I've forgotten her name. Nice lady."
Cons: "Late. Flight left late out of LAX. We missed our connection...again. We've taken BA many times and always get stuck in London. You have to be bussed everywhere and go through security again, even in the same terminal! We ended up up in the International Holding Pen for 4 hours waiting for the next flight with 2 small kids. Again. Last time we received €800 for our inconvenience. This time we got £20 for food for a family of 4. Yuck."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The food was below average even for airline food. One of the flight attendants was rude to one of the passengers even though the passenger was not doing anything out of normal."
Pros: "I especially liked our seats (we were in the exit row and had plenty of leg room); the crew, and the food."
Cons: "What we didn't like couldn't be helped: there were crying babies and a snorting gentleman."
Pros: "The entertainment choices, I like how dark it got being a red eye flight. Not as noisy as some planes."
Cons: "Cramped seats. No leg room. Touch screens were not touch sensitive so the person in front could feel every push. Better to use the remote. No individual air control, I got very hot."
Aisle seat other passenger kept bumping into my shoulder as they walk by with no regard or sympathy to apologize for bumping into me
I like it because everything looks good
Lots of people entering plane at the end of boarding that we’re not at the gate, entered at tarmac, looked like illegals from Latin America
Pros: "Great having every set have its own screen and charging port"
Cons: "Not to be an hour delayed and make half the plane miss their connections!"
Pros: "I missed flight. Rescheduled this morning 4229 when I went to bed. Today, there is no record of the flight. I have a screen print showing the seat assignment. The 1-800 said it will call back in 4 hours. Crap! Flight scheduled in two hours."
Cons: "Gate agent was cold rude and incompetent"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."
Cons: "Lack of social distancing with American Airlines"
Pros: "Only masked picking up trash during pandemic - difficult to rate crew"
Cons: "Organized exit vs. usual crowded chaos of passengers in a hurry"
Cons: "American Airlines has to be the worst airlines there is. It never fails that they try I Cath someone and try to pretend that their carry-on bagIs too big. They have this tiny little frame no reasonable carry-on could possibly fit into. Over and over again I see people including myself and my traveling companion’s having to check their carry-on bag because their “too big” this is nonsense. These are standard size bags. It’s more than enough space on board the plane. In a way in which the gate check individuals handle this interaction is a palling you’re insulting demanding and don’t give you a chance to rearrange your luggage so I can go into their absurd dimensions"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was almost on time."
Cons: "The power outlet at my seat didn't work. The baggage was delivered to the wrong carousel at DFW. The seats are TOO DAMN SMALL."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "Fast boarding and efficient, friendly crew. I paid for an upgraded economy seat, which had more legroom and fit my body (more or less)."
Cons: "AA's seats seem to have gotten thinner in recent years, so I find them less comfortable. There's no in-flight entertainment; you have to download the airline's flight app on your device and stream from there."
Cons: "Flight was 90 mins late departing"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all"
Pros: "last minute upgrade was nice, made sleeping much nicer. food was good, flight uneventful which is always a good thing."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants had an attitude and we not very personable to others. Just doing their job, ticking off the boxes. One was very kind, the others not so much."
Cons: "I was forced to check my bag bc the plane was “full” but when I got on there were more than 5 completely empty overhead bins. So now I’m waiting in baggage claim, after an already delayed flight, when there was absolutely plenty of room on board for my bag (which was of acceptable size)."
Pros: "Seats were nice, flight was efficient, arrived early."
Cons: "Gate agent spoke so ridiculously fast and swallowed so many sounds that it was virtually impossible to understand most of what he was saying. Most importantly we all missed that our roll-on bags wouldn’t fight in the overhead bins. As a result many people pulled their bags on and fought and struggled to force their luggage above, only to give up. The on-board agents recognized early the problem and then proceeded to allow many other passengers to stroll by them with their large roll-on bags, only to delay the boarding process and frustrate everyone. When making their safety announcement the flight attendant was clearly competing for fastest speaking human and rushed through at blazing speeds. In all my 30+ years of travel, I’ve never heard anything like it."
Pros: "Nothing it totally messed us up"
Cons: "We missed our 1night in Rome-had to go home and come back the next day-we missed our train tickets and hotel in Rome and it made our trip a lot shorter!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that, my flight was miraculously on time leaving salt lake city"
Cons: "I don’t like, however, the fact that 3 of the last 5 times I’ve flown American round trip midland tx to Salt Lake City I have missed my connecting flight on the way back due to no fault of my own. I have flown this trip once a month for the past six months and have to do it two more times before December. American sucks"
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable! Too close together"
Pros: "Time was good. Ground service was good. In-flight was okay. Because I love Cathay so much I took a 3 hour longer trip through LA (vs. Seattle) and paid more. But I was berating myself for that. But the flight back was Cathay service at its finest."
Cons: "We were not told our passports needed to have an expiration past six months of travel even though we got back before the expiration. We entered our passport info including our expiration dates and we’re given no warning. We even had our boarding passes prior to showing up at the airport. We will not use Kayak in the future and will book direct through the airline moving forward."
Cons: "charged a surprise of $175 for my third bag although Kayak mentioned i should be charged $75 at the time of booking. AA says it is due to Jordanyan Airlines, why was I surprised by this extra charge?!"
Cons: "Snacks were okay, nothing to shout about. Streaming movies is still of a mystery to me, not an intuitive experience in any sense of the word. the sites AA provides to answer one's questions don't give any real guidance on 'how', just state what, kept pointing me to the app which doesn't have any menu item to view movies. took me well over ten minutes to find any helpful information."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "Deplaning at an inconvenient remote terminal with unattractive and minimal facilities, which involved waiting in a long line for a series of buses for transport to the main terminal. Arrival at the main terminal required climbing a flight of stairs. No in-flight food service offered except a choice between one cookie or one cracker."
Cons: "I am very frustrated that a single part could not be located in the early afternoon to allow the plane to fly. I will be late again for work and it seems to be American Airlines and not Delta that has all the delays or is late."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight got delayed from salt lake and we had to spend a day in Charlotte before another flight came"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Not enough snow in salt lake"
Pros: "I went to check in for my flight and was told that it changed to American Airlines. By the time I arrived to the gate it the flight was full and they wouldn't let me on. I want a refund."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Good in-flight service, comfortable first class seat."
Cons: "Arrival gate was remote from main terminal, requiring a crowded and disorganized wait for a bus to the main terminal and baggage claim. The extremely small overhead storage cabinets of the Canadair required many passengers to check normally acceptably sized carry-on bags after boarding and finding it impossible to fit. Waiting time for retrieving these on the ramp at the destination was excessive."
Pros: "Free movies and tv"
Cons: "The Three days it took to get 10 hours away horrible customer service no one was there to help us.30 people were stranded"
Pros: "They were so helpful as we checked in and checked our bags! :)"
Pros: "Comfort, snacks, boarding process"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "No entertainment without paying"
Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"
Pros: "For tall people more room for the legs"
Cons: "The Seats aré very near"
Pros: "Grest staff"
Cons: "Thought the first row seating would provide extra leg room which the reservation page said it would and we paid extra for the seats - not so. it also felt quite claustrophobic with a panel within a short distance of our faces. We had upgraded for better seats but it turns out the seating wasn't better at all. The flight home in seats much further back were MUCH more comfortable. I'm thinking the airline shouldn't book the front seats by the panel as 'better' for the extra price as they were definitely not."
Pros: "Courteous and professional crew"
Cons: "Delay taking off, due to technical issues with aircraft. Seat area is much too small for an adult."
Pros: "Snacks and entertainment"
Pros: "The planes were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't get a boarding pass for my third flight."
Pros: "Completely satisfactory for my needs"
Pros: "Good pilot communications. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Very cramped quarters. Broken seat. Out of control heating system. Rude staff An hour wait for baggage."
Pros: "Convenient and close to home. Don't have to drive many hours either to Omaha or Denver."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."
Pros: "Everything went well. Great assistance because I can't walk far. They got me to my gate on time."
Cons: "Delayed plane on last leg of flight, over 1 hr."
Cons: "I had to sit next to a huge overweight guy who took all of his own seat and at least 1/3 of mine. He had to have a seatbelt extension... not so cozy. My shoulder was damp from his armpit sweat by the time I arrived in Dallas. The flight was full or I would have requested a different seat."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess. The terminal was crowded and there was no clear line to board."
Pros: "Boarding went fine"
Cons: "Inflight Entertainment was terrible. I had to watch the trailer 3 times before it started. If picked another, started at a different point in movie. The flight attendants kept making announcements every few seconds interrupting movie instead of just one long one."
Pros: "United- I cannot believe that the computer assigned seats in the last row since we have been United/Continental frequent fliers for over 30 years. We will always choose Delta over United based on our experience on Saturday/Sunday."
Pros: "The strip waffles"
Cons: "Not having to pay for specific seats or carry ons"
Pros: "It got me home"
Cons: "I got bashed by the cart many times"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Better foods and free entertainment (movies..)"
Pros: "One of the smoothest (non turbulent) flights o have ever been."
Cons: "Was treated like a second class person as they would not even entertain my offer to pay for a seat upgrade. I am 6’7” and hoped to take one of the available exit row seats but because I bought a cheaper ticket they wouldn’t even speak about it."
Cons: "Fellow passengers; too many howling kids with clueless parents"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and polite."
Cons: "No snack options. Only pretzels. Seat cushion very thin."
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed completely unwilling to accommodate any requests outside of their "service time"."
Pros: "Was not offered snacks or food. Usually when I take united to california, which is a shorter flight, they give out pretzels or something. Was not even offered the chance to purchase breakfast."
Cons: "Stated above."
Pros: "Crew and employees were all great, could not have gone any better."
Cons: "For a three hour flight, entertainment was lacking. The fact that there are ONLY paid options was kind of a slap in the face. Even just providing some radio stations to listen to would have been acceptable as a free option"
Pros: "Timely departure, comfortable airplane, decent food&drink offerings, my baggage arrived on time despite 2 layovers"
Pros: "The Denver airport is nice."
Cons: "United made our first flight late by not having equipment together, so we run through the Denver airport over a distance of 30+ gates only to find our next flight had left 3 minutes prior. The woman at the desk said, can't help you, go to the help desk. At the help desk they never said sorry, just rebooked us for a flight leaving 6.5 hoursgot later. Here are some food vouchers (which don't work at all of the food places in the airport). Have a good day."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful"
Cons: "The trip was too long but it is what it is"
Pros: "it was on time. complimentary snack and drink. plane seemed to be new or very well taken care of. crew was friendly and smiling. free wifi to personal devices."
Cons: "did some fish tailing on take off I'm assuming to windy conditions."
Cons: "No one is actually caring. They read a script without emotion this making the safety inspection a nuisance rather than informative. Southwest is much better st this."
Pros: "On the whole plane,my row was the only one with a vacant seat. I needed wheelchair assistance getting from check -in counter to the plane and the person who helped me could not have been nicer or more helpful."
Cons: "The savory pretzel snack was very skimpy and I could not drink their water because they only had Dasani which contains an ingredient that I am allergic to."
Pros: "We had 2 stops each way, I'm glad all of the gates were next to each other and our flights were on time."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "Boarding was orderly, crew was reasonably nice."
Cons: "Comfort, food and entertainment (extra $$) is very mediocre."
Pros: "I actually was upgraded (for once) so the flight was fine."
Cons: "The onboard entertainment is ridiculous. And on top of that you have to pay for it?!?"
Pros: "s This time my flight was on time so I was happy"
Cons: "I will never ever book a trip through Kayak again. You basically extorted money from me. Terrible experience. Customer service is terrible. The agent priceline is a terrible company, extremely unhelpful. I could not be more dissatisfied with your company."
Cons: "My flight out of traverse city was cancelled but I rebooked on a different airlines through united to be able to get to my destination in time for an event that day. It was a long process but I made it and really appreciated all the work the agent on the phone did for me. When I arrived at the airport they had my resvervation but no ticket... luckily we worked it out"
Cons: "I wish I could have gotten more beverage (water) during the flight. Very dry in the cabin but all-in-all, it was a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Stuck in SLC because of computer issues, was told that the flight to XNA was also delayed, wrong now stuck in Denver for another day. Hopefully we can get home tomorrow, now booked to Houston then to XNA as all united flights are sold out. . . Miserable service."
Cons: "Gate attendant was rude and prematurely gave my seat away before boarding was closed so My infant and I missed the original flight. Check in attendant was rude, picked up my bag stickers and when we disagreed on a military regulation he set the stickers down and walked away and did not assist me. Boarding was extremely disorganized and not enough room for carry on items. It was an aweful experience and I will not be traveling with united airlines ever again."
Cons: "The flight left 15 late due to the bags needing to be moved from below up to the cabin. With only a 45 minutes connecting time, this made us nervous. We did ultimately end up making the connection because they arrived/departed out of the same terminal. I'm not sure we would have made it otherwise. The crew was a bit loud and kept bumping people on the aisle as he made his way down with the cart. The seats were hard as a rock."
Cons: "Those delays I mentioned."
Pros: "The staff was most welcoming and helpful! The space was good and we really liked the overall comfortability. Also, we liked the individual T.V.'S too!"
Cons: "Really no complaints"
Pros: "Frontier and spirit are illegitimate companies. Please stop selling their tickets"
Pros: "Tailwind got it all over faster. The flight crew was professional."
Cons: "I paid for the insurance just in case I needed to change my flight. Well I did need to change my flight to get a few more things done before returning home. The answer I recieved when I called was that I had to pay 600 dollars for the change and then file a claim for possible reimbursement. The whole round trip flight only cost $250."
Pros: "I did like the everything was on the right schedule"
Cons: "the weather"
Pros: "The friendly co-travelers as there is no food or entertainment for people on a budget. Better than my flight TO SLC which was cancelled the first day, then delayed the 2nd day. Airport services saved my day by carting me to the connecting flight TO SLC from Denver as there was only 15 minutes to get from one end of the concourse to the other. A little difficult to run there at my age. Any chance of allowing people with connecting flights disembark first instead of last in this situation?"
Cons: "Due to inclement weather conditions no liquids were served. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6.5 hours. Then they delayed another hour. Then they sent a message that it would only be an additional 30 minutes so we rushed back. Then it was delayed another 2 hours. The United people would have happily stuck me with an overnight hotel so I could take their flight the next morning. I asked for the AA routing that worked for a same-day arrival. They happily agreed."
Pros: "Nice attendants."
Cons: "Cancelled and rerouting of flights. Long waits in airports."
Cons: "My luggage took about 30 min, incredibly frustrating. Most airlines have this process figured out, wish United could do the same."
Pros: "I liked the takeoff it was entertaining and fun also I liked the flight crew where every 30 min they would check on us and bring us water and snacks."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The economy seats are TOO CLOSE TOGETHER. Attendants NEED to be more aware of the size of carry-on items and the amount each person brings onto the plane. People in the front 10 rows of the plane should not be putting their luggage in the back, taking up space so people in groups 3-5 have space to put their luggage."
Cons: "Baggage didn't make next flight"
Pros: "I was immediately guaranteed a later flight which was nice so I did not have to fly standby."
Cons: "Had a mechanical delay that caused me to miss my connection and resulted in a longer than expected layover. Houston is a huge airport and even running to the next gate did not get me to the gate in time to be able to board my connection before having the door closed."
Cons: "Kayak did not confirm my seat. Was not able to get a flight. Called customer service and they told me to rebook. My card was charged twice. The airplane had faulted hardware. Waited in line for 2 hours to get a different flight. All flights to Phoenix were full. Didn't make the standby list. Couldn't make the rebook flight. Worst day ever Now, No one can give me a refund. mind you I took a day off from work this was a last minute. The reason this trip was so important to me is because my grandma is in the ICU. I hardly ever complain about any customer service experience. Overall to get a hold of customer service is awful."
Pros: "Everything was in time."
Pros: "The crew. The booking experience and the check in were all very good to great. I liked the plane on the Houston to cle flight. A 737 I think"
Cons: "The small planes to spend the day in cle to Chicago to slc And the small plane to Houston. Did not eat or use entertainment. No not used answer avail"
Pros: "Nothing. Due to weather delays, there should have been a much better approach to resolvong the problem. Customer service was horrible"
Pros: "I think i only put this score down only because we were delayed, so it kind of sucked. It however was not completely their fault. this first delay was then we were delayed by the arrival of the president. Can't really do much to help that. :) Most of the crew were wonderful however I encountered a very rude and abrupt crew member at the airport. I was not a fan."
Pros: "Great experience...checked luggage even arrived promptly."
Pros: "Accommodating, T.v's, timely."
Cons: "It was delayed so much I almost missed my connection."
Cons: "The seats don't recline and are too close to the seats in front of you... NO leg room! I will not be taking United again!"
They charge you ridiculous amounts for a carry on and a checked bag (almost the same price as the flight itself). Volaris has got to be the most uncomfortable airline I've ever been on. There is barely any leg room, the seats don't recline even though there is a button, and there is no way to get any work done, as not even a laptop fits on the tray-table.
Cons: "What I already mentioned you make my travel a nightmare"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "They charge for absolutely everything and flights are not even that cheap. Seats ate very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Volaris has no social distancing in flight"

Cons: "Get better-qualified personnel."
Cons: "Hand sanitizer and temp check at gate. I watched a crew member pick her nose."
Pros: "Is hard to think what did I like. Nothing"

Cons: "Check with the airline the status of every reservation in a daily basis and let me know that you can’t fulfill the contract"
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "We had a bad experience with one of the seats. It was totally in a bad condition. The seat was destroyed, totally uncomfortable. It is a shame to pay so much for flights and receive this kind of "standard" in an airplane."
Pros: "Seat was so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better seat more space"
Cons: "My wife needed a little water to take some essential medicine. She asked flight attendant for some water--over 30 minutes she asked 4 (four) times! Finally the attendant brought a plastic glass of water --which was HOT--not warm, HOT. I complained, only to be told they did not have cold water..."
Pros: "Excellent customer care and great customer service."
Cons: "Too many people using the restroom. Maybe you might suggest passengers to use the airport restroom facilities before boarding the plane. In my opinion, there was too much people activity for the restroom during the flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Staff was joking around, lot of people didn't respect the sites on tickets so it was a mess, instead of a solution, some persons were finding a sit before take off. The crew didn't took responsibility."
Cons: "Everything they over charge on everything and they forgot to send our luggage so I had to wait till the next flight to get my luggage to get are boarding tickets the wanted to charge us $7 dollars for each person and for each luggage they charge us $50 dollars per when it should of been $26 dollars"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to pay extra for a suitcase that was a couple of pounds above the 10 Kgs, and a small tube where I bring my fishing pole (paid as much as a large suitcasewhen it only weighted 1.2 lbs). In the previous flight they also charged us for printing the boarding passes (we we unable to do it online),"
Cons: "the cushion of seat 5E was very uncomfortable,"

Pros: "The crew was nice and professionnal"
Cons: "Boarding was late and messy. Seats are narrow. I guess I got what I paid for. The delayed arrival put us into JFK at nearly 3am. No public transportation available"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Departure 35 minutes late."
Pros: "I liked nothing, literally nothing."
Cons: "Between almost making us miss the flight because they couldn’t identify or scan the boarding passes THEY printed out (which were just little stickers on the back of our passports with no information), the flight was over 45 mins late! Additionally, the pilot said it was flight 911 to Los Angeles and then laughed and corrected himself to flight 900 - are you serious? Not a joke."
Cons: "Flight Network never booked my ticket, you need to remove them"
Pros: "The price for flight"
Cons: "Once your there you ticket doesn’t say if your luggage was included, so I had to pay upfront there and on the way back which costed more for luggage. And they also charge extra because I didn’t have a boarding pass . Only the info that was sent to me on the phone. I wasn’t able to download any boarding pass through the website. Wasent to happy with that part. The flight was ok it was fast, but very small seating leg room"
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "boarding was quick and easy. price was low compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Where do I start? I booked with them because of the low price and I read other reviews where they were compared to Southwest aArline, whom I like. well, they aren't even close! They don't offer any complimentary drinks, no entertainment, and the seats were horribly uncomfortable on all four planes we rode on. The seat pads were worn out and all you could feel was a metal bar across your tailbone. Try to sleep on that for a red eye flight! Impossible. They sat us near the back of the plane and we had the option to move for an extra fee. I chose not to and regretted this decision because the flight attendants posted up and played cards all night, laughing and talking loudly while the passengers tried desperately to sleep! nevermind the fact that you have to pay extra for a regular carry-on sized bag. This airline is such a joke. Next time I fly to Mexico, I'll just pay extra and fly with a known US carrier. Don't waste your pesos, unless you want to be super uncomfortable."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: ", change in departure time, hurried boarding, crew with long facesrude kids all over"
Cons: "People were rude and inconsiderate of our age and ability to move on our own. Being threaten to tip or our tickets would be cancelled is bullshit!"
Cons: "Everything. The flight was cancelled by Volaris at very short notice without offering an acceptable alternative. At great additional expense, I had to book an alternative flight with a different airline. What are you going to do to compensate me?"
Pros: "It was very on time"
Cons: "The bag fee is excessive"
Cons: "They checked us in, at the 2:00am boarding time they told us there was something wrong with the plane and they had fix it. Finally, at 6:00am they canceled the flight. We won’t be booking volaris again."
Pros: "Enogh room to move to an extra seat"
Cons: "Flight attendent was sassy"
Pros: "Cheap ticket prices."
Cons: "Flight was changed to 3 days later than we were supposed to leave. Not able to reach customer service. Kiosks in Mexico City have no idea what is happening, I had to raise my voice for someone flying to help translate. Horrible old planes with tiniest seating. Never again."
I wouldn't recommend this airline they don't care about costumers

Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane and cabin"
Cons: "Online check-in needs work!"
Cons: "We borded plane and stayed and did not depart until 1hr and a half after. No explanation from crew as they sat and joked around.

Super unprofessional overall"

Cons: "We were 7 hours delayed with no explanation and the airline was terrible."
Pros: "Cheap and on time."
Cons: "No Wi_Fi on board so that could be better."

Cons: "Checkin in, boarding, Seats, on board entertainment, food"
Pros: "They gave me a free checked bag! When I took out my credit card to pay for it, he said "No, es un regalo (gift)." How nice for a budget airlines!! May have been due to the holidays, but Volaris just charged me MORE for a bag during the holidays. We boarded on time and landed early. Our baggage came fairly quickly as well. Those are important things to me (especially if I have to catch a bus or a connecting flight) I'll definitely use Viva Aerobus again!!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty cramped, especially if you're tall. But that's to be expected. What I thought they could've done (and this goes for all the cheapo airlines) was at least offer us a cup of water. I mean, come on!"
Cons: "Some glitches in the loading of your pages made The printing of boaring pass and electronic ticket complicated and confusing resulting in an extra charge yo print the boarding pass."
Cons: "Viva aerobus takes advantage of its passengers by charging last minutes for non-sense things"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We ran 5 minutes late and were not allowed to board our flight because there was NO ONE at the ticket counter to check us in... And just fly is saying that we cannot use our return flight tickets, so we have wasted almost $1000.00 Unbelievably poor service at the point!"
Cons: "Double assigned seat, crew was poor in communication and never explained or apologized."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and willing to sevice us. Pilot was very kind also."
Cons: "Only a bit more smooth flying, but this is out of our control."
Cons: "Boarding took just too long"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 45 min and boarding the plane was s mess"
Cons: "Kept us 50 mins on tarmac without any explication"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Leg space was not good. There was very little space for me to get situated."
Cons: "Just the space between the rows of seats."
Cons: "Waiting inside the plane with door open. It is ridiculous to be inside the plan for an hour before takeoff"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time, both legs of the trip"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline. No option for entertainment. Very limited food options for purchase Meal tables were dirty"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline. Pitch felt smaller too."
Cons: "Great service, I really recommend. Un servicio muy bueno"
Cons: "There's litteraly no leg space between seats."
Cons: "This airline is always delayed and it’s always too much. This time was 1:30 hours late and we were standing 30 min more in the destination. So. This airline is the worst"
Pros: "Everything was average. Nice new airplane though."
Cons: "They lost my bag on a single non stop flight. 60 minutes in baggage claim until someone showed up. They needed 24-72 hours to find it. No idea when they would get it to me. No compensation for the things I needed ok vacation while they look."
Cons: "The crew to check in at the airport were not helpful at all. They charge me and my family to print our tickets for us. That’s ridiculous, and an extra $50 per bag. I will never fly with volaris again."
Pros: "Cheap and on time"
Cons: "Crew that didn't care and didn't greet passengers"
Pros: "This is a cheap ticket."
Cons: "They tried to charge me for carry on luggage even though I was under weight and under size. They aggressively tried to take my carryon and told me I had to pay 41$ per bag or I could not get on plane. Only when I asked for a manager and found someone to interpret for me and show with a measuring tape and we did they allow me on... total scam - the gate attendant conned at least 15 people before us that had smaller bags that they had to pay (very aggressively in Spanish and many passengers did not speak Spanish so gave in and payed just to get on flight). Once on the flight- you can adjust your seat which for me wasn’t a big deal at 5’1” but any taller would be an issue. You pay for even water on this flight."
Cons: "Crew and personal at las very rude"
Cons: "I missed my flight due to an emergency and they made no effort to help me out, they essentially said you lost your flight buy another one."
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "Didn’t like i wasnt told i was going to sit separate from my husband and son"
Cons: "This was one of the worst overall flying experiences I’ve ever had. The flight was from Mexico City to Cabo, and i was supposed to take the flight with two friends. We were all later than we wanted to be due to the México City traffic. I arrived one hour before the flight and they arrived exactly 34 minutes before. I remember because we tracked it exactly on our phones as it was happening. When they got to the check in booth the attendant said they were too late to check in and they had to have gotten there 35 minutes before. I have checked the airline online policies and nowhere does it say that. It only says that they can refuse checkin after 30 minutes but I am positive they arrived before that. I will mention here that the plane was about 15 minutes late taking off. So, the airline enforced strict made up policies on its paying passengers and doesn’t uphold any sense of respect to them? The attendant also told my friends they would not get refunded and that the next flight wasn’t until the next night. We are going to Cabo for the weekend so obviously that was out of the question. So, I board the plane and realize why the attendant must have told my friends the plane was closed. There were no empty seats on the plane, which means that they must have given away seats to people on standby. I support this if its a last minute decision after the flight has closed AS IT IS ADVERTISED. Not a made up 5 minutes before. So I boarded and there was absolutely no service. None. The flight attendants came out once and made you pay for WATER. What kind of airline doesn’t at least give water??? I understand the appeal of budget airlines but honestly, this flight was over $200 which is not what I would call “budget” and the airline skimped on the most basic things— water, customer service, and any semblance of human decency. I am thoroughly disgusted with how horrible this airline has been for even a 1.5 hour flight and i plan to not only write as many horrible reviews as I can but to share this terrible experience with as many people as I can so they can avoid being victims to such inhuman treatment. Viva Aerobús should be ashamed to call themselves an airline and Kayak should be ashamed to allow them on their site."
Pros: "According schedule"
