Airline reviews

Cons: "The plane was ancient. Cabin was freezing, seats were rocks. Using an old short-haul CRJ for a 3.5 hour flight sucked."

Cons: "Being on Delta"

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."

Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late, and forced a full on sprint to get to a very distant gate in Philly for layover"

The guy sitting in the seat behind me kept putting his knees into the back of the seat to prevent me from reclining so that his girlfriend could sleep with her head in his lap, so I could not recline in sleep on the long flight from Munich to Philadelphia. I don't have any of these issues when I fly on United. If you want me to fly on American more than I suggest you fixed them."

We explain then that our 19 months got car sick so we were cleaning him on the curb and they refuse to check us in and tell us we were too late. Even if we beg them as we were going to Paris to spend Xmas with our family. No flight for us ..."

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.

Pros: "Perfect t"

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: "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"

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: "Nothing good to say at all about American Airlines. #IHATEAMERICANAIRLINES"
Cons: "We boarde on time, however there was no air conditioning or lighting on. After fully boarding we were told the pilots were going to be an hour delayed coming in! Oh yeah, and the fancy new seats don't have power outlets. #IHateAmericanAirlines"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight was late eariving at gate in Dallas and missed connection to Nashville. However, was put on a flight that left just 2 hours later"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Nickeling and dimming by the airline -- extra fee for baggage checked -- by the way, airline broke the suitcase; very slow in Las Vegas to get the bags to the right carousel. -- took an extra 45 minutes because airline kept changing carousels. I' m frustrated wit the airline's reservations for seats -- none unless you pay extra. Flying (especially with American Airlines) used to be a pleasant experience. Now it is very hectic -- no reserved seats, cramped seats, little/ no food. I'll drive from now on."

Pros: "Staff was accommodating throughout the trip"
Cons: "We were delayed on every leg of the flight - even sitting on the tarmac for 1.5 hours. No nursing rooms available in the airports."

Pros: "That it was a short flight."
Cons: "Small plane. I had to gate check my standard size carry-on bag because the plane was so small. Waste of a first class flight. How and why is there even a category for entertainment? There is no more entertainment unless provided by yourself. Even the free wifi is bullshit! I was given a warm beer! First class is not worth the money."

Pros: "They changed my seat twice to accommodate mother's with children. Lost my window seat. Told me no more room for carry on bag. Was my only bag cause doesn't want to go to baggage claim. Cost me extra 45 mins claiming my bag."
Cons: "Not take away my carry on bag at gate (was not a size problem), don't change people's seats."

Pros: "Very pleasant and accommodating."

Cons: "Was late"

Cons: "Flight departure could have been on time"

Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."

Pros: "The crew WAS amazing. The seating was a little tight, but ok."
Cons: "For a flight over two hours, a snack would have been nice."

Pros: "Boarding and meal"
Cons: "Service in first class and the heavy turbulence could of reached a warning from the pilot"

Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"

Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"

Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."

Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"

Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."

Cons: "Flight was so delayed we would have missed our connection and been stranded in DC overnight, so we had to push all our reservations back and missed a full day of our vacation."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything started when we tryed to check in online for our flights with Lufthansa, when we got some errors saying that our flights does not exist. NO Emails, not calls, no messages, no voice mesagges left by the company! -called the client service, located in Philipine apparently, the lady confirms that all our flights were canceled (3), then she hangs off the phone. -called the second time, another lady is rebooking me on a different flight, but she informs me that my husband is not on the same reservation as me, so basically he is in another flight. Eventualy she is changing his reservation as well and puts him on the same flight as me. -waiting for the confirmation email, of course the reservation is just for me, no husband anywere. -called the third time, a nice canadian gentelman informs us that the second flights was canceled so he will redirect us via NJ instead of Washington. -we are rushing to the Richmond airport to catch the NY flight, at the counter they let us know that this flights was canceled and we are back on the DC flight. -when ready to board in the DC flight they are announcing the this flights is delayed from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm due to weather conditions. -waiting in the line to be rebooked in another flight, after 3 h of waiting they decide they can fly to DC at 4:45 pm, with about 15 people on board."

Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Planes were older and tight."

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Cons: "Personnel were unhelpful and not forthcoming! Very inconvenient with trying to reschedule to the next day! Felt as if no one really cared if we got there or not! No vouchers were offered for hotels or food!"

Pros: "The staff was courteous and efficient. The entertainment selections were diverse. The seating was adequate for a long haul flight."
Cons: "The check-in process took 50 minutes at the counter as the staff told me that I needed a visa for China (transit) while that info was incorrect. I had to deal with online customer service while the person at the counter couldn’t help. It finally took 3 people at the counter to send me away. Once on the plane for a 14+ hour flight, I couldn’t use the bathrooms freely as they were filthy. The staff obviously didn’t maintain the bathrooms during the entire flight. The food served made me wish that I had bought take-out food for 3-meals prior to my boarding. the quantity of food was inadequate for the long flight as well. 1 extra snack would have been appreciated. I will likely book my future trans-Pacific flights with another airline."

Pros: "crew was apologetic"
Cons: "no movie service, no wifi. this is the 3rd time this has happened to me on an international flight to China on United. so bad. every other airline has it all together"

Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Entertainment system Completely broken for full duration of flight. Individual screen also broken as well as seat Broken 19C"

Pros: "- Crew was attentive."
Cons: "- Personal device entertainment was intermittently functional, had to use the poor onboard display for entertainment. - Internet access was $39.99 for the length of the trip, that price is ridiculous."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "United horrible customer service"

Pros: "Can keep electronic devices on in flight mode. Had power outlets, very nice!"
Cons: "Boading horrible mess. A second flight was boarding using same audio system. And no elite flyer pre boading in SFO"

Pros: "On time arrival in China. Good entertainment options for my iPad, better than seat back display"
Cons: "The usual lack of attentiveness by United Flight crew"

Pros: "Flight left and landed on time. In flight entertainment worked."

Cons: "Average service"

Cons: "WiFi for $39.99, used to be $19.99 before."

Cons: "So many maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections. Gate attendants were crabby and not very helpful. Absolutely no leg room. Much less than most major airlines."

Cons: "None"

Cons: "Average seats, no in flight entertainment or beverage service"

Pros: "Free directv because of the delays"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"

Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."

Pros: "The pilot had an excellent landing in adverse conditiions"
Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"

Cons: "We arrived early and then sat on tarmac for so long we were technically late.."

Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."

Pros: "Connecting flights in China need more of a layover I missed my connecting flight not happy it was a disaster going through immigration takes forever in Shanghai .."

Cons: "That i got stuck in China for 2 days"

Cons: "i booked my flight on Kayak and immediately been cancelled dunno why"

Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"

Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and awesome crew"
Cons: "No wifi or any entertainment"

Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."

Cons: "My seat didn't recline My arm rest wouldn't raise My flight was delayed for hours There wasn't another available flight I could switch to I lost a whole day of work from getting in at 1:00 AM"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food. It is a very long time and there no food enough"

Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."

Cons: "Had to sit on runway for over 2 hours causing me to miss connecting flight in Chicago. Then no more flights to Little Rock so had to spend the nite in airport very uncomfortable!! Kept changing gate numbers causing me to walk all over airport while having severe knee pain!! Very upsetting and painful"
