Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Everyone was helpful."

Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."

Pros: "The plane was nice"
Cons: "I’m still sitting in Minneapolis so I would have liked to be at my destination. And I had to pay for the overnight accommodations."

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."

Pros: "Excelente"

Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."

Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality. I also am surprised that airlines (not just Delta) continue to provide such low quality food options on flights. I think consumers would pay more for better options."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."

Cons: "Tv"

Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."

Cons: "My initial flight was changed from 9 am to 5:55 am.... this is. It what I wanted or I would have purchased it. On this flight we had a 3.5 hour delay for mechanical!!!"

Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."

Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"

Pros: "Non"
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."

Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."

Cons: "Delayed two hours"

Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Pros: "I had a window seat"
Cons: "bumpy flight"

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Pros: "On time, courteous"

Cons: "There delay"

Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Pros: "Everything was great. Staff were friendly and courteous, I only had one problem but even that was solved and I was taken care of."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that wires got crossed and now I don't have my luggage because my check in agent from the start of my journey didn't send it to the right place."

Pros: "Pilots and crew are still great- all negative comments have to do with corporate policy."
Cons: "Not able to social distance at all. We had to board a bus to get to the plane and we sat there for 20 minutes breathing in exhaust while we were packed in like sardines rather than the bus going back and fourth with smaller groups. The plane was tiny, so again- no way to distance at all. Seats at the front were left unoccupied rather than allowing others to move to them for social distancing."

Pros: "The crew was super nice, they offer me to change my seat to fly with my sister."
Cons: "The pilot"

Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "Very abrupt service. Not much room."

Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "WIFI please for the god sake it’s a transatlantic flight"

Pros: "The young man was so funny - crew!!!"

Pros: "787 seats have better legroom & recliner"
Cons: "Vegetarian food needs lot of improvement"

Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."

Pros: "Left on time or a tad bit early, arrived early."
Cons: "When I checked in, it indicated a smaller plane. I thought I was going to be in a window seat, instead middle. I also wasn't able to carry on my bag, had to check, and then wait at baggage terminal."

Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."

Cons: "We landed early but the plane was late 50 minutes into gate. Plane went pst our gate twice, just driving around the terminal."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Reduce time spent on tarmac."

Pros: "Nothing. Door closed in my face departure board never showed it was boarding and I ran from my other delayed flight to try and catch the Wilmington flight"
Cons: "American needs to step up their device and the airlines should be punished for their lack of service If an airline vises a non weather delay there should be immediate compensation for passengers. No different than what retailers do to their suppliers when supplier is late delivering merchandis"

Cons: "Delayed significantly. When we landed there was no gate for us to taxi to. All around a bad experience."

Cons: "I'm expecting more from AA. We were delayed for 2.5 hr since we didn't have a pilot !!!!!"

Cons: "Speaker volume was too high."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tiny seats, no snack or napkin with the drink. Noise in back."

Cons: "Too bad you paid$$$$ and they give you pretzels"

Cons: "Small, cramped seating"

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Cons: "Being delayed"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I wish the flight was longer. :)"

Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour (which wound up being a 3.5 hour delay in total, with all the continual delays that pursued afterwards(, which would have made us miss our connecting flight back to our home destination. We switched flights in order to make it home at a decent hour and not spend our entire day and night in an airport. We arrived home and they did not transfer two of our three checked bags to our flight, thus making it highly inconvenient upon our arrival home with no luggage."

Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."

Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."

Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."

Pros: "The seats on this little plane were large and comfy (which I never thought I'd say about a plane again). The crew was great, and the flight was hitchless."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour and a half. Not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things, but it still puts a cramp in my day."

Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"

Pros: "Everything else was Fine on the flight..."
Cons: "...But having HBO NC-17 available on a public flight is uncalled for. Even though screens employ technology limit viewing from the side, the seats behind can see everything. We were thankful none of our kids were on this flight. Gratuitous sex scenes in abundance. No thanks American."

Pros: "It was a larger plane than the first leg of my journey so I did not have to gate-check my carry on luggage."
Cons: "It was a bit of a bumpy flight during take off and landing. Flight was cold, but not freezing - tolerable."

Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."

Pros: "The seat pockets were decent, though I like when the magazines have their own designated slot behind the tray in addition to a pocket. Also good there were power outlets. I liked that they didn't skip row numbers, including 13. So if you're in row 22, for example, you know that's literally how many rows back you are."
Cons: "It took 25 minutes from when plane landed until it reached the gate. There was also apparently an issue with the auxiliary power -- the lights went out in back half of plane when we arrived at gate. I prefer having a screen behind each seat, rather than those attached to ceiling on this flight, so that the entertainment can be customized."

Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."

Pros: "Flight left on time. Staff was excellent like always."
Cons: "No outlets on the plane. My flight was suppose to have WiFi but it didn't work."

Pros: "Biscoff!"
Cons: "lack of ent. options"

Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."

Cons: "Bathrooms in the airport deplorable. Gates not so clean as well."

Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"

Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."

Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."

Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."

Cons: "Each flight delayed at least an hour"

Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "no food"

Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour and we had a connecting flight to Vegas that we were worried we were going to miss."

Cons: "flight was rebooked to a terrible time, the next day, had to spend over $300 for hotel, extra parking, extra meal, extra day on rental."

Cons: "Our pilot was the choppiest pilot I have ever flown with. Don't know if this was his first time flying or what. I was so happy this was only a 30 minute flight. He/she was terrible. More schooling should be a requirement until u can fly and turn smoothly."

Pros: "The flying part"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "The stewards were nice. The entertainment package was good. Food was ok (coach)"
Cons: "6 1/2 hour delay due to navigation system crash. Two gate changes and a terminal change. New seats assigned, but then when 3rd plane was brought in, it had the exact configuration of the first and we were told we should use the original boarding passes. These turned out to be wrong because they reseated after the first plane went down and it’s replacement wasn’t the same configuration. We never saw that plane, or the gate it was assigned to. When we went to rebound, my wife I am were separated. We were moved to the way back (screaming baby sandwich - one in front and one behind us). Then we spent an hour in the worst turbulence I’ve seen in 20 years - I nearly vomited. the last 6 hours of this 15 hour ordeal were fine."

Cons: "We took off about three hours late because of a small mechanical problem discovered after we boarded. The plane had been sitting at Dulles for 12 hours. Couldn't it have been checked earlier in the day?"

Pros: "Departed and landed on time; checked luggage returned in a relatively short period of time; crew pleasant; plane reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "In order to access the bus which took passengers to the plane required going down three flights of stairs and two flights up to the plane. This made carry on luggage and personal bag difficult."

Pros: "I liked the cabin and the many drinks."
Cons: "Too much food offered and it wasn't of any real quality, so processed and carb heavy. There was a maintenance issue with our screens for a few hours, that was a little disappointing."

Pros: "The flight attendants, service and comfort were very good."
Cons: "Because of plane maintenance the flight was 4 hours late. I stood in line for two hours to get my flight changed since I missed my connection in Frankfort, and never got it changed. I got to Frankfort and stood in 3 more lines to get on standby. I’m hoping to get to Naples before the last ferry to Capri in order to make my sister’s wedding."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Not much legroom in economy"

Pros: "Comfortable. Good entertainment and good service. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Missed our flight from Brussels to Zurich. United said we were booked on next flight six hours later. Gave us vouchers and that was it. Went to check in and the carrier said sorry you can’t board United did not book you. The voucher just has prior info and this flight time. So we missed getting on that flight 3 total hours on the phone with United and they did nothing but put us on hold. Thank you to Brussels air who finally after many years and frustration helped us so we could leave. More than 10 hours later than we should have. Horrible experience and we lost a day of vacation and pre paid plans for the evening I will never use kayak again for international flights. As that was part of the problem per United (probably BS but won’t ever risk it again) and will never use United airlines again as their customer service and lack of caring showed that companies true colors. I hope the rest of this dream vacation is better than this nightmare was."

Pros: "United got me from Dulles t o Zurich. The boarding, flight, and food was as expected."
Cons: "Not being able to select my seat in advance of the day before the flight is not ideal."

Pros: "We were surprised to find ourselves assigned to the bulkhead seats where we had extra legroom and great access to the restrooms."

Pros: "Customer service and everything else was great"
Cons: "Getting delayed. We were supposed to leave at 10 something PM but instead kept getting delayed until we finally left at 1:45am. That to me killed my overall experience for that flight considering that it's an 8 hour flight and that I needed to come back on that Monday. Less time do stuff for the weekend."

Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."

Cons: "I had broken table on my seat, then I needed to jump for eating several times."

Pros: "Better comfortable seats. And snack options"

Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "there was a seven hour delay to our departure Food was pretty bad, entertainment system was broken"

Cons: "Departing 5 flights out of gate A1 in Dulles"

Pros: "Attentive cabin crew and decent food/wine selection, but...."
Cons: "This format of business class seating leaves a lot to be desired. There is literally no place to store anything except maybe your cellphone on the shelf under the TV screen. No room for a backpack on the floor - has to be in the overhead. Not convenient on an 8-hour overnight. Seats are tight - could not lay on my back - had to sleep on my side. No separation between seats - it was a 2, 4, 2 layout and the guy next to me coughed all night. At least I wasn't in one of the middle seats. Expensive flight for that type of setup IMHO. And given it was a 777, the plane was big enough."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and food and snacks were good."
Cons: "By the time I got to my seat all overhead bins by my seat were all full so I had to take my carryon towards middle of the plane to place it in an overhead bin. I also had to remember to write down the number of that bin so I could retrieve my carryon at the end of my flight.Toilet was not very clean."

Pros: "The United employees handled everything. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We had a delay our flight up two hours"

Cons: "board . The door was closed & we waited for 2 economy passengers - took an hour . mY experience - once the door is closed , it does not open until the plane reaches the destination ."

Cons: ":)"

Pros: "Freebies- free headset, free movies, both dinner and breakfast served , free beer & wine, free bag check. They didn't even try to nickel and dime me."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Until they can make the chair recline backwards a little more (which, space issues may never allow for and I acknowledge this), and give food a bit more substantial then it won’t be 5 stars. However, exceptional stewartess and captains with humor made this 14 hour flight bearable."

Pros: "IAD to Brussels Flight is ok, just stuck between 2 guys with BO. Not really the United Airline's fault. But I hope they can atleast put a sign or something."

Pros: "good seating. I am 6'5" and i was pretty comfortable"

Pros: "Flying business class is always exciting and fun and it was a relatively good deal..."
Cons: "... but when you pay $2000 + for a business class ticket and then the lose you luggage and it’s now 8 hours later and they have not located it yet... that’s not good!"

Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."

Cons: "Three hours delay when all aboard already due to “technical difficulties” and then we had to change plane. The whole entertainment system did not work. No apology or explanation."

Pros: "No delays for flight, despite weather."
Cons: "Lack of legroom or recline in seats. I know it’s economy, but come on. We’re not sardines."

Pros: "That the flight was on time"
Cons: "I flew with 1 child and 1 infant and there was no help, not at check in, not at boarding nor from the crew on board. I requested a bassinet before the flight over the phone and didn't get it. There was an issue with the infant ticket and the United check in agent was incompetent to fix it, which made us late for boarding. No one helped me at boarding with taking the stroller from me. On board the crew members were annoyed when I ask for some hot water for a baby bottle. And it's sad that children don't get a kid's meal ( which we received flying with many other airlines) and have to eat the uneatable adult meal. That was my first and last time flying with United."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."

Cons: "My connection was clear across the airport, it was quite the trek when the second flight was already boarding"

Pros: "Punctuality, efficiency and courteous and prompt service."
Cons: "Only that WiFi is too expensive"

Cons: "Seat was inoperable and frozen in upright position in business class cabin. Last to order entree had only 2 of 7 choices remaining and fish was extremely unappetizing presentation."

Pros: "Attendants were kind and helpful The food and drink provisions were good"
Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"

Pros: "Good service and environment"

Cons: "Very noisy!! A dog whinned the whole time. Flight attendants were ok."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."

Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."

Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."

Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."

Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."

Pros: "All fine, except delay"
Cons: "2.5 hours delay: plane needed maintenance and then more of that, a were unloaded. Took another plane."

Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."

Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "I paid for the internet that never worked. I couldn't watch a movie or TV either. It was t just me, a lot of people around me had the same issue."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."

Pros: "On-board WiFi was a nice touch, but redundant as there was no way to charge your electronic devices"
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle. Had to bring your own headphones... WTF? Children's meals requested for my 6-year-old were practically inedible. "Breakfast" consisted a stale, chewy croissant (which I believe I am still trying to digest a week later...) and yogurt. No USB port to charge electronic devices"

Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."
