Delayed departure due to short staffed security at Burlington Airport. Missed connection flight. Terrible customer service at Delta. 7 hour travel day turned into a 24 hour travel day.
Ross, the flight attendant. Won't fly another w his working it.
Pros: "Quick boarding process and take off. Flight was slightly late but the staff expedited boarding and take off. Staff is friendly. Service was great. Beverage service was great. Baggage was quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "Even though its a short flight better food options for First Class would be appreciated."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "A/C was not working well, cabin was too warm and stuffy. Long delay on take off. Can not hear and understand pilot through PA system."
Pros: "The crew were so kind and professional"
Cons: "The flight delay was a pain"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."
Pros: "The best"
Cons: "Again the boarding process took forever"
Pros: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Pros: "It wasn’t delayed 3 hours like the first flight"
Cons: "Departing on time"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, smooth flights and plenty of notification of any upcoming turbulence. Delta did fantastic with keeping everything from check-in to landing friendly and professional. Will definitely fly again"
Cons: "Way crowded even in comfort plus Flight very late leaving Missoula Got to SLC just as flight was boarding for LA"
Cons: "The Male flight attendant was rather rude"
Cons: "The gate was changed but it was not updated to the app. Many of us were waiting in the wrong gate until 10 mins before departure."
Pros: "Delta’s crew is always the best. On schedule"
Cons: "This was a 2 hour flight, some entertainment would be nice..."
Pros: "Emergency exit window seat"
Cons: "Punctuality 7hrs delays over 2 flights is unacceptable Ruined the first day of my trip"
Cons: "Crazy rough, fast landing but not boring!!!"
Cons: "I understand when weather is rough not moving the beverage carts but a small bottle of water would be appreciated."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The turbulence. Poor california git lits of smoke."
Cons: "Unbearably hot!!"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Nothing. Really."
Pros: "Nice crew, no delays"
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"
Cons: "wish the pods were a little longer for sleeping. it your 6'1 or taller you can't completely stretch out"
Cons: "Delayed, gate agent trying to rebook not super helpful"
Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."
Pros: "The plane was less than half full so I got my own row and slept most of the flight. Chargers and tv screens for each seat"
Pros: "I have always kinda shied away from delta, but I have used them the last two times I flew. And I will be using them in the future! Friendly and professional!"
Pros: "Short, straight-forward flight."
Pros: "how short a flight it was!"
Cons: "nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Boarding went well, departed on time and arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work. I brought it to the attention of a flight attendant since all the attendant lights weren't". So they were having a glitch I the system. He said he had them reset mine. Hee must have furthermore until they did the beverages. They tried twice, nothing worked. No movies, no audio, no light. Nothing done, no compensation. NYC to Seattle, a long flight tho not even read my magazines."
Pros: "It's Delta, so I got miles."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in"
Pros: "I fist and most importantly, I liked the price of the flight. The airports were very helpful with guiding and helping speed up the checkin, boarding, and safe travel through my only stop in Mexico City."
Pros: "The gate attendants were extremely helpful in boarding this flight despite delays at the destination. They accommodated everyone and did their best to deliver efficiency."
Cons: "There were select in-flight crewembera that not only spoke rudely to passengers but also openly discriminated against passengers on board. They openly stated "It's always easier up front, isn't it?" They were openly rude and impatient with a group of passengers who clearly needed their interpretor and refused to provide any guidance when they group was nervous about missing their connection due to the delayed flight (they did actually miss their connection and were left to "look at the boards outside.") I personally experienced direct rudeness that was simply beyond what should be considered acceptable. A gentleman attendant was pouring ice into his bucket and due to a leak in the bag, she was pouring water all over my entire jacket sitting on my lap. Stunned by this, I loudly asked him to please stop and proceeded to ask for napkins. His response was "it's just water, it's not a big deal." I responded to say, "it's actually on my enitre jacket and I need to check that it didn't hit my laptop in my bag" and the response was "it's just water...you don't need to yell at me." I genuinely was frustrted but by no means was yelling. I was handed napkins and when he finally saw just how much water he had poured onto my jacket (the entire half of the jacket was soaked)...the response from the attendant was "Oh, now that I see how much it is...I actually am sorry." Implying..he previously actually wasn't sorry at all. I say with FULL certainty that had I been sitting "up front" or in first class...the apology would have been immediate and freely offered and would not have come with a degree measurement of damages. I am a loyal Delta flyer and more and more so I'm finding it hard to stay loyal to an airline with staff that continues to disappoint and concurrently creates such difficulties throughout the booking process."
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and we didn't get charged for the blankets, as in other airlines, though it would have been nice not have needed them, the plane felt colder than 70 degrees!"
Cons: "Longer delay occurred when another passenger got into an argument with staff. It took soooo long for security to come to fix the situation so we could continue boarding. We were also packed in like sardines. I would pay more for more room, though business and first class are available, they're way too much."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Good for an economy flight"
Cons: "Too long"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours with no explanation from Delta or any information. Once boarding finally began, another 30 min went by before they closed the plane again without any explanation. As a connecting flight after a long international flight, it was awful. Unfriendly and impatient staff."
Pros: "The flight was quick, safe, and the crew was courteous and attentive."
Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and apologetic."
Cons: "Having two planes with mechanical trouble. Putting our luggage on the wrong plane. It is 1:50 am as I write this. I should be home in bed."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff were excellent"
Cons: "I hate the CRJ configuration- no business class and coach seats are far too close together, worse than many Asian airbus configurations."
Pros: "Whoever making announcements from the cockpit seemed excited to be going to the Bahamas. Made the short trip from Atlanta very light hearted."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hrs missed connecting flight waited 3 hrs for next one"
Pros: "Reassignment was pretty easy."
Cons: "No accommodations were available for overnight stay due to delayed flight."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"
Cons: "The 2+ hour delay"
Someone left a bag under the seat in front of me. It was from the previous flight. There was a kindle and a cell phone in it. There was also an empty coffee cup under the seat across the isle from me. I find it hard to believe that they are cleaning between each flight but missed these items.
The staff was very friendly, they were enforcing good safety practices. It's pretty good value for the money, too.
Ground stop at ORD delayed our flight out of Burlington. Arrived ORD with a few minutes to spare. Sure would’ve been nice to know that our connecting flight had been delayed. Would’ve saved some stressful running from gate to gate. Otherwise: all good.
I spent money on extra leg room and as I’m boarding the switch my seat to a regular seat. Horrible scam to get extra money from passengers. Never flying this crap airline again.
Pros: "A very new Eagle plane. AA staff was good about updating us re: departure delays. Waited to inform us of gate valet plans until the last minute."
Cons: "BTV Airport is very small so prepare to be in crowded waiting areas."

Pros: "On time/ early arrival Careful about cleaning"
Cons: "Very friendly and safe staff thru the entire process."
Pros: "I used my miles to get the tickets."
Cons: "None of the crew smiled. They seemed like TSA agents that wanted to stop us from coming in. They seemed mad that we were using their airline."
Pros: "yes, no on sat on my row coming or going"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Seats were impossibly small. Family in front of us kept removing their face masks. Wife pulled hers down to take selfies every few minutes and husband consistently wore his below his nose. Flight attendant asked him once to pull it up and he did, only to pull it down again a few minutes later."
Pros: "Ok fliggt"
Cons: "Plane was really warm for a very long time"

Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Ladying calling out the plane numbers i could barley understand her"

Pros: "Apologetic crew"
Cons: "Massively delayed with no compensation"
Pros: "Quick flight good crew"
Cons: "More entertainment and snack selection"

Pros: "Smoothest flight ever and crew was perfect. Thanks!"
Cons: "5 hour delay missed my connecting flight because of this neither airline offers a refund or anything since I booked them separately.... Now I have to spend more $$ and time thanks"
Pros: "Pilot kept informing us what was happening..."
Cons: "Plane already late, then 15 minute taxi, then they could not drive the walkway up to us correctly so another 10 minutes wasted. We missed our connecting flight... rescheduled with different airlines much later. Missed a whole day out of our three day visit. Airline travel at its normal worst!"
Pros: "The crew has invited my kids to take a picture with them. My wife and I have been impressed."
Pros: "early flight. Smooth. Good landing. Friendly folks."
Cons: "No WIFI. Sat on Tarmac for 15 minutes upon arrival. No fault of anyone though."
Cons: "I went to the airport. I was told a 3hr delay. I only live 10 mins to the airport. So I went back home to only receive a notification that the flight has departed after 45 mins. I am now stuck here since that was the last flight back. The earliest flight available is next day at 12pm which means I am going to miss work and I have been on hold with AA customer service exactly for 3 hrs now and still holding."
Pros: "Had been expecting middle for all four,so this was great."
Cons: "Guess I need Bose noise canceling headphones after all."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and in-flight entertainment was good, including easy access to power ports."
Cons: "Delayed about an hour due to weather. However, another 2 hours spent screwing around sitting on the plane after boarding because no one anticipated DCA restrictions. Then on arrival sat another 30 minutes waiting for a gate. Adding insult to injury, took about 40 minutes to get luggage. Weather is understandable, but the rest was just mismanagement."
Pros: "Clean plane, kept cabin lights dim the whole flight until the plane was parked at the gate, and music at a good volume"
Cons: "None at all"
Pros: "Great staff and crew. Keep you posted and informed. Good service."
Cons: "No outlet and waited idle for a long time before getting to get off plane also had to walk my bag back bc there was no overhead storage space in the bins which prevented me from getting off the plane sooner"
Pros: "Nothing aside from that the flight wasn’t crowded so I didn’t have someone next to me which was a plus."
Cons: "Funky smell in plane something like artificial strawberry, farts and mildew. Crappy plane overall. Old and no power at seats. Horrible in flight entertainment for a long haul with no individual screens. American used to be so good and now it’s aweful."
Pros: "Most things."
Cons: "Delayed flight!"
Cons: "Seated next to two obese people and when combined with narrow seats made it all but impossible to sit comfortably on my seat. Flight was delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to missing part. When flight arrived in SLC, gate wasn't open (at nearly 1 AM) and had to wait on tarmac again for 10-15 minutes."
Pros: "On plane staff was attentive and very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight departure. New norm, being late?"
Pros: "Our plane was grounded before take-off because of a mechanical issue, and the airline did a good job of informing us of the status of the repairs and eventual aircraft replacement. They offered us sandwiches, snacks and drinks for during our long delay."
Pros: "The comfortable sitting and good hospitality by staff. Timely departure and smooth landing of aircraft."

We were late getting to our connecting flight. The flight crew was immensely helpful in getting us on the plan and on our way home.

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "More comfortable and spacious seating, more reasonable priced food for the quality you get"
Pros: "Great plane and crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice"
Cons: "No room in the seats at all"
Pros: "The crew was typical, the seat was on the aisle, which I prefer, but kind of in the way and I kept hitting my head."
Cons: "The snacks are not good at all, next time I'll take my own. They should just quit serving them and charging us for them."
Cons: "The seats are too narrow"
Pros: "The flight was excellent. My luggage dding"
Cons: "Having my luggage."
Pros: "Flight was ok the first flight from Btv to IAd was not great the plane made a lot of noise during takeoff and landing sounded like the ceiling panels were going too fall off as well as other noises"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Better food would be nice."
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Shortage of space for carry on"
Cons: "I'm only 6' and felt like I was in a cage. I couldn't feel parts of my legs. God help you if you're actually tall"
Pros: "The wafer caramel cookies were great but no substitute for an actual breakfast."
Cons: "You have to pay an insane rate for the Wifi. Access to United.com and the United app weren't available so checking on connections was impossible."
Pros: "Gate attendant downstairs at departure door was very nice, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "I had to rush across the airport to another terminal in order to not miss my flight. Gate attendant at upstairs desk could have been more helpful. The flight attendant appeared to be tired and not so patient. Could have asked the people who had not turned off electronic devices to do so individually instead of threatening to stall take off over the intercom."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice"
Cons: "Plane was boarded and we were told it would be 15 min before the pilot would be there. We were on the ground for an hour and 20 minutes before we took off."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "The plane did not crash"
Cons: "Customer service, being nickel and dimed, the staff told me if I don't like it to fly Jet Blue"
Cons: "Poor communication and terrible management of bad situations."
Pros: "At least they made an effort and it was finally resolved."
Cons: "Fact that the plane was not checked properly and was about to take off and go back to the gate."
Cons: "We booked what was labeled a Lufthansa flight and paid extra because we had flown Lufthansa before and thought the service and the flight were excellent. Imagine our surprise when we found out it was a United Flight. We were on the plane for almost 11 hours and we just had a small lunch and a snack that was tiny. We were starving when we got off. Next time, British Airways gets my money. I want to know what airline I am paying for all the way through without the switching shenanigans."
Pros: "OK service, hard landing"
Cons: "Scheduled times were kept"
Cons: "It was delayed a few minutes"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say about United Airlines"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"
Pros: "Wife is legally blind and asked for help deboarding plane. Flight attendant refused. A passenger in front of her helped her. This is terrible service."
Cons: "Service,and checking .. most people at ticket counter"
Pros: "In today's travel world a tiny bag of pretzels reigns supreme. However, I would not constitute this as a rating element titled 'food'. This item is more of a N/A."
Cons: "Food is sandwiches or platters, for example. Since most travelers do not experience being served food on local flights these days, the selection of answers for this category should be updated to include N/A (not applicable) which is what I would've chosen. Very difficult to rate a tiny bag of pretzels 5 Stars."
Pros: "The crew on every leg of the flight was very professional. Having one TSA entry point for eight gates at Brulington really slows things down, I realize this has nothing to do with United though."
Cons: "I wish instead of me when I missed my flight due to TSA that United themselves would have tried to get me out on another flight that same day. They assumed I wanted only one stop, when in fact it didn't matter to me so long as I wasn't stuck another overnight. I used Kayak in the terminal to discover a different flight that same day and was lucky to get on as each flight was fully booked."
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "seats aren't so cramped."

Pros: "Kindness of crew"
Cons: "Both flights delayed, no entertainment on board only pay-per view"
Pros: "Quick easy no delays"
Pros: "The crew for the most part was friendly and courteous!"
Cons: "I appreciate that the pretzels/peanuts/sodas/juice come with the flight; however, the quality of the choices were low in my opinion. I recommend if possible food/snack choices that are organic, non-GMO and/or all natural."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The whole arrangement going through Air Canada but flying United. I never got confirmation numbers from United at all. I had to call Air Canada to get confirmation codes for United. Getting confirmation codes from Air Canada had no real significance with United. United would not confirm seating. When United finally confirmed seating, the seats were not together. Then United changed the flight three times and never gave updated confirmation codes. The last change came the day before our departure. Then United charged another $138.00 for seats that were assigned and never informed us. I am still trying to get the $138.00 back."
Cons: "No snack or entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hrs delayed so I couldn't even take the flight. Waste of my money. Paid 330 dollars and got nothing. Now United nor you guys are helping. Never again will I use this site"
Pros: "The snack"
Cons: "For the price I paid, it was a terrible seat, no room with 2 people sitting on either side."
Cons: "PRICE, overcrowding, crying kids, crew wasn't very polite they seemed irrittated"
Pros: "Everything is usually great with United. I have rarely had an issue. If I have a choice, I fly with you."
Cons: "Nothing. You all were perfect again!"
Pros: "Flight was boarded efficiently. Left the gate on time and got in early."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
Pros: "the staff was friendly and helpful, boarding was fast"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dirty, crumbs on my seat for the first flight but overall, not bad. There was no entertainment other than their magazine provided, so that is not applicable."
Cons: "Deverted to Newark to get to portland"
Pros: "There was a large amount of room"
Pros: "None of the issues related to a service dog came up on this flight."
Cons: "United made no accommodation for a late-arriving connecting flight. The United schedule required changing terminals and a race to the next gate -- then closed the doors five minutes early even though there were passengers sprinting from the other terminal to make their connection. They knew the connecting flight had been delayed; they should have waited five minutes to let us on. The result was a nine-hour wait in Newark Airport for the next United flight."
