Pros: "Exlent"

Pros: "Smoothe landing"
Cons: "Old plane, some kind of tablet thing with an attached remote almost impossible to figure out even how it works. 7hr flight and I only saw the steward twice."

Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."

Pros: "A comfortable safe flight. Steph was very helpful and nice and kept us updated when there was a delay on the flight. There were no problemsThe food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :) my face it was processed promptly and my reservation was handled promptly at the information desk ."
Cons: "The food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :-)"

Cons: "Atlanta concourse wasn't nearly as clean as MSP or Richmond."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We had a 2.5 hour delay because there was someone missing in the crew. It sounded like it hadn’t been properly planned for the flight so it was frustrating. However, once that person showed up, everything was great and the crew was very sweet"

Pros: "The staff was exceptional with the distance to loading the plane and with serving us food. It was flawless."

Pros: "Crew was professional and understanding/empathetic given the circumstances. We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "While the weather delay was out of everyone’s control and it was obvious the pilot was doing everything he could to get the pale airborne... i feel their could have been better communication from the ground as to our take off time. They kept changing our time and thus we were trapped on the tarmac for 4 hrs. Had we known, some of us could have gotten off the plane and rerouted so as not to miss our connecting flight. We and others were stuck in Atlanta, had t okay for a hotel....and missed a day of vacation....☹️"

Cons: "I’m a pretty big guy so this won’t apply for many other people . But the seats didn’t have much space . It was a very uncomfortable experience. I have taken many other flights and this one was one of the worst."

Pros: "The plane was nice, entertainment options were great, pilot was super kind."

Cons: "Great flight!"

Pros: "The crew was a replacement for the original crew that probably was running late (i suspect because everyone was stuck in wonderful LA traffic that night), they made do with what they have and tried to get everyone boarded as fast as they can."
Cons: "On time departures, better boarding, crowded planes, better snacks, comfy seats, charging bagss???"

Pros: "I loved Craig on our flight he made it a hilarious and fun experience! And he needs a raise!"
Cons: "The seat was a bit uncomfortable, and boarding was slow. To be expected I assume for anything not first class."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "This flight is always on time and flying on Sunday is a great option."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding, flight, deboarding were all fine. Service was fine."
Cons: "The flight numbers that Kayak provides ate not unusable and do not match any flights with the airline. Terribly inconvenient. A call to WestJest referred me to contact Delta. The Delta rep was able to help me. The airlines provided good service. But I probably will avoid booking with Kayak again."

Cons: "Late boarding and take off with no explanation."

Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Space on board was horrible. Diffenately not enough room and I'm an average guys."

Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Seats were tiny as hell"

Cons: "Not enough searband leg room"

Pros: "Large jet, attentive crew, on time."

Pros: "Attendants very friendly and helpful. Greeted everyone with a smile and a pleasant voice. One woman was having a very hard time. She evidently was afraid to fly and wanted to get off the plane. The attendants were very kind to her, spent time with her and informed the pilot. The pilot made several comments using her name making sure she knew every time we were about to run into some turbulence. I thought that was very kind."
Cons: "Sometimes very hard to hear the instructions and the pilot when they are speaking. Snacks are very small quantity and often stale"

Pros: "Everything was so very nice. The seats were fantastic in First Class. So comfortable. The service & food were delightful. The only negative was the screaming infant. This is my second trip on Delta in First Class in the past three months. Both times the trip was ruined by crying babies. ☹️"
Cons: "The crying infant."

Pros: "And arrived early, too.☺"

Cons: "One thing I didn't like is that this flight had three different numbers,. Aeromexico, Delta, and KLM. AND we didn't know which counter to go to to get our tickets ( it turned out Delta). There was not a single number to call to ask questions it get help....it turned out that JustFly was the contact, but we purchased through Kayak."

Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Plane seats were very small and did not recline. Only one bathroom on plane"

Pros: "N A"
Cons: "I did not receive acknowledgment that I had cancelled the flight... and I still received 'updates' to give uncertainty to the status."

Cons: "It was freezing cold."

Pros: "Clean and good size sears"
Cons: "Slow boarding, crew tires and it showed, pretzels no nuts,"

Pros: "There is nothing I like the most. Everything was downside from the day one immediately the purchase of the tickets."
Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."

Pros: "Efficient boarding process and friendly crew. Timely arrival is the good enough for these regional flights. Comfort+ seats are good."

Pros: "Everyone was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The microphone needs to be louder. It was very hard to hear."

Cons: "Rough flight and landing."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast. The crew was helpful with a wheelchair passenger, and get everybody else on board soon after. We depart the gate a couple of minutes early, and arrived almost half an hour early."
Cons: "The first class seat were not much more spacious than the comfort+ ones. Choice of snacks were limited as it was a short regional flight. No overhead or seat back entertainment, but you can stream from the media server through in flight wifi."

Pros: "I make this trip every month. And this crew is the best I had in a while."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent service"

Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."

Pros: "Love the sofa and cookies."
Cons: "The leg room was reduced to the least I've ever seen on this flight. My knees hit and I'm 5'9'."

Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."

Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."

Pros: "on time departure"

Pros: "Reasonably comfortable, quick flight."
Cons: "Missed connections due to late flights - twice."

Pros: "Crew was absolutely delightful! I love that hand sanitizer wipes. Great flights out."
Cons: "I wasn't offered any type of sanitation wipes like I was on my way departure. The airport in Mississippi disnt offer any type of sanitation such as hand sanitizer or a reputable substitute. Sure their were bathrooms, but that's very inconvenient to have to use every time you touch something."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. It would be nice to be informed that although beverage service is suspended, you can still request drinks that are available. I had to find this on the website and didn't get anything by a tiny water bottle for both of my 3+ hour flights."
Cons: "I understand main cabin isn't supposed to be as upscale as 1st class, but it would do well if the seats were a bit more comfortable and the headrest was softer, it feels like a lump or sack of potatoes. Very stiff and hard. Also, having enough arm room would be nice so you're not fighting the person next to you for space on the armrest."

Pros: "Flight was slightly delayed (20 min). However, boarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was full so no option to distance."

Pros: "Easy boarding process, friendly crew member and smooth flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which impacted our connecting flight."

Pros: "Despite the fact that im a platinum member they offer no benefits during the flight. Seats are torture chairs . Im definitely moving my bussiness w another airline"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for no reason given. Flight attendant touched my baby without asking if it was ok. Too many announcements over the speaker. 20 min one trying to sell us a credit card was ridicoluolously long. It was also after an ad for it on the video screen."

Pros: "Crew was kind and attentive"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours and sat on tarmac in nyc for 45 minutes"

Cons: "Cramped seating and illogical boarding process"

Pros: "Excellent seats and early arrival"
Cons: "Lack of food choices or entertainment"

Cons: "Long delay. We were worried we would miss our connection and we had to dash to catch our next flight."

Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their news names."

Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."

Cons: "No advanced seat assignments unless we paid $100 per person?! Recently flew Delta on same equipment (A321). Delta had in-seat entertainment & adjustable head rest"

Pros: "ontime easy boarding comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "no gluten/dairy free items"

Pros: "Crew was efficient and cordial"
Cons: "Overhead bins are small so they take rolling luggages down. Would have been good to know ahead of time d/t fragile items in carry-on"

Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Not getting service even SW served on 45 min flight"

Pros: "Finally getting my Bud Light"
Cons: "The inflexibility if crew about changing into empty seats at same price range. Gate attendant not allowing my to carry my purse on beats had to hide it."

Pros: "Boarded well but held for late connecting passengers, which is fine with me."
Cons: "Crew less than pleasant it seemed."

Pros: "The plane was late but from that point everything was fine."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "Small, ol, uncomfortable plane."

Cons: "Lateness, seat comfort and gate checking a duffel bag"

Pros: "Flight was only 25% full. Nice crew"
Cons: "Seats are cramped. No noise canceling headphones."

Cons: "did not use the flight. The flight was delayed and I would have missed the connection, so AA switched me to other flights."

Pros: "No big crowds trying to board. Everyone had room for their items in the over head. Love the one seat by itself. Very short flight but the one steward still served beverages and cookies."

Pros: "Our flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "it was a short flight, no food or drinks."

Pros: "The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!"

Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "The trip was good"

Pros: "The crew was pleasent and helpful"
Cons: "Didn't get my bag, on either end"

Pros: "Timely. Plane on time. Crew very friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Horrible hospitality. The flight was initially delayed for computer issues which understandably happens. However, we were later switch to another plane 4 hr later, boarded, de iced, taxied, then notified he flight was cancelled at 1 am because the crew hit their maximum work time. We were de-boarded. There was no organization to get vouchers passed out. The hotel ran out of rooms for passengers. The whole trip was 16 hrs delayed and no customer service provided."

Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful, going above what was needed!"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Too many delays"

Cons: "Check in staff was unprepared for volume of people. When asking an American Airlines agent if I could use the priority check in because I had priority seating I was told no. I was informed by a customer going that way that I indeed could. When I got in line for the priority check in, the agent looked over and very loudly said that I was in the wrong check in area. Given the volume at which it was said to me I felt embarrassed, and was upset at the fact that I then had to respond that I indeed was in the correct location."

Pros: "The service was fantastic and so was the food!!!!! Loved the movie options as well."

Pros: "My flight was very good and I had no issues.I was very surprised how smooth everything went and I will be use kayak again."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike.I will use kayak again I know that much"

Pros: "Flight crew kept us advised of the weather situation (thunderstorms/turbulence). Did a good job of finding a route that was fairly smooth. Overall very pleasant flight and crew."
Cons: "It's an MD-80. Need old cigarette-lighter style plug to be able to charge anything. No inflight entertainment unless you use snail-speed Go-Go internet service."

Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."

Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."

Pros: "We made up time in the air and landed early. Seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "We landed early but had to wait a half hour to be able to get to an open gate. Then when arriving at the gate the jet bridge was unavailable so we waiting on the plan for an hour after touchdown. Then during my baggage claim pick up I found it open and spilling out into the bin and it was the first time I used this suitcase. Overall, I don't think it was the airlines fault but the airports fault at LAX, however all of these thing combined made it a less enjoyable flight/experience."

Pros: "Excellent service and very friendly; thanks!"

Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"

Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "I was lucky to get an upgrade to business class. It was fantastic, of course, as business class should be. Great crew, great space."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies. Or maybe I'm just old and grumpy and not interested in dozens of superhero movies!"

Cons: "Delayed by an hour and then the took nearly an hour to board when they made people check their carry-ons and their printer broke.."

Pros: "The lady at the checkin was very considerate and suggested that I am only allowed to bring one baggage. So she suggested if I can combine my both luggage as one, then I should be all good otherwise they will charge double- scary."
Cons: "Light travellers like us should be given more latitude to choose 1 bag size 17x10x 5” and one laptop bag size 12” X 10” x 3”"

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I can’t understand how airlines charge for the first checked bag in an international flight. I’ve traveled for more than 20 years and this is the first time I have to pay for that. I’m surprised they didn’t charge me for the oxygen I used"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! Friendly and attentive!!"
Cons: "More snack options other than pretzels would’ve been nice."

Pros: "Crew seemed experienced and professional."
Cons: "Aisle seats have smaller under-the-seat storage space than other seats. The transition from a First Class to Economy was abrupt and kinda depressing."

Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Plan on wearing your running shoes. United is bad at giving you a lay over that is almost impossible to make. 45 minutes or less for a layover is going to give u a pretty good chance to miss your flights. We went to LAX and had to run from terminal 8 to 7. If it were long we would have missed it.."

Cons: "Flight delayed until 8pm then sat on the plane in Toronto for 45 minutes waiting for a gate and because we were sent to a parking area with numerous other planes and ended up getting boxed in and couldn’t get to our gate earlier. Nothing offered to the passengers during this time, not even water."

Cons: "The plane was hot. The pilot forced a landing quickly to be on time, instead of taking his time through rough winds. The plane was very turbulent and the landing was extremely rough. I actually pulled out the "puke bag" and almost needed it."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very welcoming"

Pros: "Friendly crew, decent food, good entertainment options to make the flight feel shorter."

Pros: "First flight on a 777 ... quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long day in a plane but necessary if you want to travel to bucket list destinations!"

Pros: "Clean friendly, on time"
Cons: "None of the entertainment system or WiFi setups were working. Need more water and refreshments"

Pros: "I know it’s out of the hands of the airline but we were delayed due to weather. Luckily they booked us on another flight but it was the next morning."
Cons: "I know there are clauses saying that United does not have to do anything to accommodate you if it’s bad weather but we did not get anything for our inconvenience. Most airlines will seem to help you with hotels or food and whatnot if you had to be rebooked. We ended up booking a hotel through the Hotel Tonight for a great rate although it’s unrefundable. Turns out we get to the airport and our original connecting flight was severely delayed and we would have made it on to that flight. So either way we were stuck with a loss."

Pros: "Nothing really worth writing about this flight. Average."
Cons: "The seating area was not clean. Bread crumbs and other food particles, hair and liquid marks were on the seat and adjoining areas. Having been a regular UA flyer for nearly 8 years, I am seeing the quality slip year by year."

Pros: "It was a typical flight."
Cons: "The screen/ video entertainment system was broken and the flight attendant was rude about it."

Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."

Pros: "Awesome first class crew!!!!"

Pros: "Once again, the crew and food/drink were superb."
Cons: "Booked on wrong flight, delayed takeoff, United/Lufthansa boarding process and communication was hideous."

Pros: "What has happened to the carry on bag rule at United? Spirit bag rules at United prices. Not right. I will fly someone else."

Pros: "Horrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "What you would think of a typical flight. Nothing special happened, just loaded up and flew."

Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The people at the gate were very friendly and helped ensure we made the plane although we were late because of a misunderstanding of the boarding times. The original itinerary was booked through Kayak for Lufthansa months ago. The flight was 10:25 and boarding time was 9:50 up until the night before the flight. The crew members made a remark while we boarded as if it was because we went to the duty free. It was not because of the duty free visit and would have liked to tell the flight attendant to keep that remark to herself or wait until she was in private with her coworkers. It's a matter of professionalism if she wasn't going to confront me personally."
Cons: "Plane was old. The overhead compartments kept opening upon takeoff and landing. Although passengers were able to close them, they would just open again. This posed a safety concern to the passengers near the compartments. (3 compartment doors that I know of opened). The TV screens were unsatisfactory for an international flight greater than 5 hours. The food was disgusting and competitor airlines offer a much better selection for international flights. Would not consider United for an international flight based on this experience despite price."

Cons: "Each direction I got delayed"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "5 hrs late."

Cons: "The boarding process"

Pros: "The flight was on time and everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Was good"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The international flights were good - slightly more room and decent entertainment options."
Cons: "The domestic legs were annoying. Very coach experience."

Pros: "Easy buddy"

Pros: "OK until we boarded."
Cons: "My flight out of Chicago was cancelled. I hate when they lie to you that it was weather related. At the time of my flight to White Plains at 1:50 PM there was no snow in Chicago or at White Plains, Moreover the 6 PM flight left to White Plains when it was snowing both here and there. The only option given to me was standby on the 6PM flight. So, I had to cancel my flights and it ruined myu weekend."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."

Cons: "Seating is just cramped!"

Pros: "Great crew in handling irate oassengers"
Cons: "Old plane, no per seat screen, very little leg room in aisle seats, Avoid this flight"

Pros: "The crew was nice and accomadating"
Cons: "No leg space"

Pros: "Smooth flight"

Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "The United app was sending me false alerts that caused me to miss my flight. The crew seemed to not care at all."

Cons: "Getting rerouted to LAX. It would have been much less expensive to book a flight to LAX originally."

Pros: "Brought us safe to Hawaii and back home home."
Cons: "My brother accidentally left his passport, ring and chain inside the plain which was very expensive and he called after he noticed he didn't have it with him. He left it inside of the pocket holder of the seat on the plain where the magazine are. He called and was told nothing was there. On our way back home, the flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours behinds. At no moment did the co pilot excused himself nor did he apologized for the the delay. We deserved at least a free meal or some kind of compensation. Instead, the pilot and flight attendants just told us to rich it because we had to leave to L.A! We (8) family members came and this includes an elderly person (my mother who has been fighting cancer for about 2 years, along with diabetes) came to see her grandaughter get married. Now they were rushing her as well? Uncalled for. Now my other brother and his family which was a party of 10 on another flight, also flew to Hawaii. Now that alone tells you how much money was spent. The stay in Hawaii was amazing! We would visit again but the way we were treated on this airline, I don't think we would fly again and choose this airline. To be honest, not even recommend it. I'm ashamed to let others know such as friends and co workers know of this airline's service. To top it off one flight attendant was very rude! She saw us when she handed the other passengers pretzels and skipped my mother, my sister and I. I asked her nicely if we may have some and told her she had skipped us. She said, "I did?" Came back with 6 bags of thenm and was like, "Here!" Like shoving them to me. I felt humiliated! I didn't say anything because I didn't want to embarrass her. But it was extremely rude!!! I read some reviews and I guess it's normal on your end to be the way you treat your customers. We even asked before abording from Hawaii to L.A, what can you do to make up for all this and we were told, "nothing could". So ashamed."

Pros: "Take off and landing was 15 mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Legroom on the plane was cramped."

Cons: "One flight attendant reprimanded several passengers like Schiller children very loudly."

Pros: "Entertainment was good... Kept me engaged... Crew were reasonable with their service"
Cons: "Food tasted horrible. I have travelled in multiple airlines in the past including British Airways, Emirates, South African, Delta and more. Food is by far inferior to any of the other airlines."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours due to a mechanical problem. They found a different plane to switch with the original plane. They pushed back the estimated departure time about 10 times."

Cons: "It was FREEZING which made it impossible to sleep despite being exhausted from the extreme flight delays. Two issues (one was maintenance, the other was a passenger not feeling well) caused delays up to about 90 min!"

Cons: "Flight delayed 3hrs because there was no crew."

Pros: "The email and text messages with fight status was one the best part of the trip to Los Angeles. The short check in lines and fast check in with United Agents was another great part of the trip to Los Angeles."

Pros: "The flight attendants."

Pros: "Again everybody was nice and we got on the plane on time."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to find the gate because it was one outside. The small plane was suffocating."
