Pros: "The concourse, gate and plane cleanliness was great! It should have always been this way. Not being packed like sardines was even better."
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: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "The plane was nice, entertainment options were great, pilot was super kind."
Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"
Cons: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"
Pros: "Crew was very fast but not enough during boarding and people had brought oversized carry on luggage to the gate requiring stowing. We had checked a carry-on at check in and paid $30 while several people got theirs stowed for free which seemed unfair."
Cons: "The charging for checked luggage has created a situation that was unfair for all travellers and ultimately made the plane’s departure late. This policy drives people to bring too much luggage into the cabin, putting at risk the safety of others and delays."
Pros: "The free upgrade"
Cons: "Keep being the example other airlines shoud follow. Awesome job Delta."
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: "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: "Friendly service. Frequent snacks which is nice on a 10-hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped conditions"
Pros: "Quick and easy."
Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Space on board was horrible. Diffenately not enough room and I'm an average guys."
Pros: "The flight was great & so was the cruise. Unfortunately my luggage is back in Atlanta & I’m in Ft Laurderdale heading on a cruise tomorrow without my belongings"
Cons: "Not even given a toothbrush or tee shirt to sleep in."
Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."
Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Seats were tiny as hell"
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: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."
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."
Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."
Pros: "On time, quick flight, nice people."
Cons: "It was freezing cold."
Pros: "Clean and good size sears"
Cons: "Slow boarding, crew tires and it showed, pretzels no nuts,"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"
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: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"
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."
Pros: "This was a redeye flight that was very smooth."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat and a male flight attendant kept going up and down the aisle bumping my shoulder. If I were a big person I could understand the bumping. He was wider than the aisle. At last count he bumped me 7 times while I was trying to get some sleep on this 5 hour redeye flight. I was going to confront him on his next trip but finally fell asleep before then."
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: "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: "All flights were on time."
Cons: "In Atlanta when I changed planes the gates were to far from each other. In different terminals."

It is a very short flight from Richmond to Charlotte, but beverages would have been nice.

It was exactly as I expected, on time, smooth flight, courteous staff.

Pros: "The crew seemed to make the best of their situation"
Cons: "The airplane was old and very cramped. Needs to be replaced with a more appropriate plane."
Pros: "Flight was so smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The employees were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "On time with a very pleasant crew."
Pros: "Comfy seat, nice crew"
Cons: "Hour delay before departure; 30 minute delay after landing before we reached gate; 15 minute delay to get carry on bags!"
Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. The seats are very uncomfortable. It feels like you are being packed in a sardine can."
Cons: "The airlines need to take into consideration, the Price that passengers pay for an airline ticket, only to be restricted in those uncomfortable positions on the average of 2 to 3 hours."
Cons: "Certain crew members could've been a bit more approachable and friendly."
Pros: "great stewardess"
Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"

Cons: "snacks"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."

Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"
Cons: "They left our laggage out in the rain at some point of our trip and the contents of our suitcases were soaked. Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."
Pros: "Good legroom on economy"
Pros: "Flight loaded on time left on time and arrived on time. Crew were all very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"
Pros: "On time and no hassles."
Cons: "Uncomfortable old dirty aircraft."
Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"
Pros: "The 737 was excellent. Boeing still makes the best aircraft."
Cons: "Being rescheduled from an 0830 departure to a 0530 departure, which meant I had to get up at 0300 to get to RIC by 0400 for TSA and check-in. As originally planned I would have arisen at 0500, still early, but not nearly 0300. The equipment had no individual entertainment screens. So we were stuck with whatever was on the common screen...which was bad."
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Cons: "When will the airlines stop cramming so many people in planes with seats that are too cramped. Especially when you are on a regional flight, with a seat crammed in a corner that does not recline."
Pros: "I was last getting on the plane and I didn’t want to check my carry-on and the flight attendant found a spot for me! Nice, quiet flight."
Cons: "The drink cart skipped me! I was definitely awake too. When I got his attention I finally got my drink but I didn’t get a napkin or pretzels offered either. WiFi was iffy and never loaded for me."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival; helpful staff at check in & at the gate; plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly American again."
Cons: "Both flights delayed. Over six hours late."
Pros: "The pilot was great about keeping us up to date on the possible route change and exactly how long we would be sitting on the runway, new arrival time, etc."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 35 minutes with no offer of a beverage (though there was going to be beverage service). Then just before take off as the flight attendants were snacking in the back, we asked about a possible drink and they said the flight was going to be too turbulent to serve anything."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, clean airplane, great flight! Our original flight was delayed, but we still made it right on time for our connecting flight! I didn't realize when I was booking the flights that American lets you bring a carryon no charge, but United does not. You have to be a "Special" customer with them in order to be allowed a carryon, so we ended up paying an additional $50!!!"
Cons: "I was a little unhappy we were delayed, I had a meeting in Charlotte planned, but these things happen."
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Pros: "Crew, clean"
Cons: "Flight delayed as we were pushing back from the gate."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being contacted even though reservation was cancelled the day it was made months ago. Caused unnecessary stress that I needed to call Airline to confirm cancellation."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, will never fly American Airlines again"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same as above."

Had to cancel flight as it was delayed by 12 hours

Pros: "Nothing. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for 3.5 hours with little communication or apology. The seats were very uncomfortable. Terrible turbulence. Not even a complimentary soda for all of this. I will never fly Allegiant ever again."
Pros: "Excellent leg room in standard seating. On-time with quick and efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Website is still slow to update trip delays, not a problem today though!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly but did not enforce wearing of masks and deplaning was chaotic to say the least with everyone pushing to get off the plane"
Cons: "Enforce the airline’s own policy of wearing masks. About 1/4 of the passengers of the waiting to get on the plane at PIE did not wear a mask in the terminal, even though it is the policy of the airport. Chaotic deplaning in BNA with all passengers rushing to the front of the plane trying to get off. Rock hard very narrow seats."
Pros: "Employees from the gate agent up to and including the flight attendants we are very accommodating and helpful!"
Cons: "I love the changes that have taken place. I last flew with them 5 years ago and vowed too never fly with them again. Times have changed and they are a great Airline!!!"
Pros: "We had a really nice crew."
Cons: "The landing. the approach was so rough. I've flown 6 times this year. And that was the roughest approach ever"
Cons: "Seats, snacks"
Pros: "Good pilots"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind, attentive and caring. There was a special needs girl in the same row as me that was by herself and they were always making sure she was okay and comfortable as well as the rest of the plane."
Pros: "It was good quality for the price."
Cons: "You really need to install jet ports at Punta Gorda. We sat on tarmac for almost two hours due to rain and lightning in the 5 mile radius. Would have avoided this delay with a jet port."
Pros: "Definitely the price. Fairly quick boarding process, just a little congested. Decent priced drinks."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats, but there was no one next to me, so it was okay."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Timely"
Cons: "Signs at the airport and terminal info"
Pros: "Our trip to Knoxville was great- no complaints. A/c cool— flight on time."
Cons: "Trip back to FLL air was not working well. Plane dirty as well."
Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, on schedule and the cleanliness of the cabin."
Cons: "Extra charge to make use of the overhead bins. This does not include extra work or cost for Allegiant. Lack of legroom; take out two rows of seating and make the current size of travellers comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Have to pay $45 for a carry-on bag. Seats were uncomfortable and have to pay for all snacks and drinks including water."
Pros: "Everything the service for breakfast , the interpretation for more information about when you’re in a plane what to do in case something happened and stuff"
Cons: "They didn’t have a WiFi on for the plan I couldn’t use my phone at all"
Cons: "I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app."
Pros: "On time and very efficient"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 4-5 times before it was cancelled all together and rescheduled for the following day. I lost over $200 in hotel charges and valuable time with family. A 3 day trip was decreased to a 2 day trip. Extremely disappointed. After sharing our experience with others we heard the same thing happened them."
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Left late"
Cons: "First flight being cancelled"
Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Both departing and return flights were delayed by just over 5 hours."
Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."
Pros: "Seating assignment before the flight. Direct flights."
Cons: "Felt nickel and dimed to death by extra fees for trip insurance, luggage, and picking advanced seating. Ended up spending more than if we had just chose another airline."
Cons: "Both original and 2nd plane had malfunctions which caused extensive delays and doubled boarding time"
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. The Flight Attendants were pleasant and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't take too kindly to the Service Agents on the ground. The Service Agent in San Antonio wasn't very accommodating or supportive to my needs. I had a problem that needed resolved and instead of diligently helping me, she would turn to another customer, totally ignore my concerns and speak Spanish with this other woman. When I was at the counter first, not the other woman. The Service Agent in Orland on my way back was rude as well. She gave my Mom and I attitude about my luggage being overweight. Told us to pay the $50 or figure it out. We had expressed already paying the $18 to check the luggage to begin with and wanted to see if that amount could be included in the $50. The Service Agent scoffed at us and turned up her nose. Great air service, horrible ground service."
Pros: "The price for the flight and the direct flight make it worthwhile."
Cons: "Boarding process was completely chaotic; they had two lines, one for people with paper boarding passes and one for those with electronic passes, but they just let everyone line up all at once which was way too crazy. It needs to be better organized."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Charge for carry on and in flight snacks and drinks (sodas,juices,water)"
Pros: "The price of the flight was cheap, but i know why. You ended up paying for your carry on luggage, ypu pay for seat assignment if you want to guarentee sitting with you party, you pay for soda. My flight was 1.5 hours late, due to mechanical problem. Plane was janky and it felt like it STILL needed repairs."
Cons: "Low airfare."
Cons: "Two out of three bathrooms out of order"
Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Delayed the flight for 7 and a half hours. They then tried to not refund my money"
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff were and how everything was done on time."
Pros: "The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time."
Cons: "The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger."
Pros: "I was prepared for the worst and was pleasantly surprised on all counts. On-line booking easy, check in a breeze, boarding on time, reasonably comfortable flight, baggage no problem."
Cons: "Seats a bit flimsy."
Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour for "paperwork". Can't be helped by the crew, but an administrative errors are just as bad."
Cons: "That you charge for every little thing...surprised you don't charge to use the bathrooms. Don't appreciate having to be your clean up crew either."
Cons: "7 hours late on a direct flight"
Pros: "Cost Flight Crew Deplane option from Front and rear"
Cons: "Only 2 flights per week Delayed flights All the "additional" charges $40 to check a bag $30 to bring a bag on board $12 for priority $12+ to book a seat in advance The method for Boarding that put every on in zones 2 and 3 in line before letting people who paid for priority get on board $22 for water"
Pros: "Delayed. Boarded. Unboarded. Left sitting when announced 'low fuel'. Claims of weather. Pulled up radar, zero weather to be found!"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional, and the food and beverage on the Lufthansa transatlantic sector were better than US carriers offer."
Cons: "The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat. I will avoid this aircraft if possible in the future."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, professional, and communicative."
Pros: "Friendly crew and comfortable seats"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Gusty winds in CID - the crew handled this quite well. Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was no UAL ground crew to greet us when we arrived on time (11PM) in Cedar Rapids. Poor communication."
Pros: "Comfort was fair"
Cons: "It was delayed - enough to miss the flight"
Cons: "The flight took off late due to baggage not being loaded in a timely manner and the wait on the flight when we arrived was much longer due to equipment not being handled properly; because of this my family and I missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "enjoyed getting moved up to economy plus with my premier silver status."
Cons: "the little kid kicking my seat behind me which is no one's fault except the parent which you can't police."
Pros: "Everything was great. Flight attendants were enthusiastic and friendly."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."
Pros: "Early arrival. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Check in was confusing."
Pros: "It was good. One crew at the boarding station was not helpful but another stepped in and she was awesome."
Pros: "Everything was excellent but the decent was probably the roughest I've ever experienced. The poor Stewart ran with bags and wet naps up to touch down. The beverage and pretzels were great."
Cons: "Everything was excellent. We did receive a beverage but no pretzels."
Pros: "The staff that is it"
Cons: "The plane broke down I was put on standby offered a middle seat and I'm a bigger guy I was stuck in between 2 other bigger guys and wasn't offered any compensation I'm anyway!!!! The next review will be on yelp"
Pros: "The check in process"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The delays and cancellations overwhelmed the gate attendant. She was not able to effectively manage the situation and quickly became chaotic"
Pros: "Clean newer plane. Nice staff. Smooth flight. Flight was on time"
Cons: "Tsa frisk"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "I hit the side of my foot on a sharp piece if metal that was exposed on the right side of my seat. I bled and took pictures"
Pros: "i was slow getting off the plane but a person was waiting patiently. when i boarded the plane a flight attendant helped me figure out why my luggage wasnt going easily into overhead compartment and at the end of flight helped me get it out."
Cons: "aisles on plane too narrow to get luggage easily down aisle"
Cons: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"
Pros: "Flint got delayed"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged no longer usable"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Missed my 2nd flight. Stuck overnight at airport. Vacation ruined"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight without telling me and you made me miss my flight to Sydney. Your staff didn't help. I want to be compensated for my flight that I missed"
Cons: "Something was wrong with the plane and I miss work"
Cons: "Near 5 hour delay at departure airport with very poor communication."
Pros: "The space and entertainment was good"
Pros: "The plane was not very full...that made the experience so nice. All passengers were there early and boarded quickly allowing us to leave the ground ahead of schedule. They offer entertainment using their app on your phone or notepad."
Pros: "Pleasent crew"
Pros: "The people on the plane were friiendly enough, the customer service once we were on the ground was terrible"
Cons: "United Customer Service Blamed weather for a delay, I am a pilot and didn't see any weather delays posted for Newark. Even if there was weather, they didn't hold our outbound flight and missed it by 15 minutes. Didn't comp us for a hotel, had to stay in Jersey out of pocket, Jersey is busy, dirty, smelly, and overcrowded. Not enough infrastructure for the people. We were lucky we got there 2 hours prior to flight time and had TSA Pre Check."
Pros: "Free wifi, snack was yummy"
Pros: "I had not been given a choice of gluten free meal before boarding so I declined the food offered, and the attendant, without my asking her to , went and found something gluten free."
Cons: "The entertainment screen did not work well."
Cons: "Food,crew could be better"
Cons: "Both planes were late, and you sent this questionnaire before flight had even arrived in Omaha"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Went with another airline. Waited 1:20 to get assistance"
Pros: "The United skybus we were on from ORF to EWR was comfy."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac at ORF for 1.5hr to find a de-icing crew and nearly missing the next flight leading to a multi-terminal sprint to make it."
Pros: "The people were really nice. We left on time or early on most flights which was also nice. Like the variety of liquor and prices for beverage that's offered."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment doesn't compare to delta. Our last plane was getting retired so it didn't have any in flight entertainment and the snacks tasted really old. The other flights had spotty connection at best and was hard to connect to their movies."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I don't think it's fair that you don't any money back of you cancel your plane ticket. It shouldn't matter what type of ticket it was. You should at least be allowed a voucher for the amount of the ticket at a later date. Even if it's a percentage off, you should be allowed something. How is it that you can buy a car worth thousands, and be allowed to return it under the Lemon Law. When a company called can make billions of dollars doing this, it's just taking advantage of the little people."
Pros: "wheelchair and cart to get to my plane because of a knee injury"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The customer service . Delayed flight everytjme I fly!"
Pros: "Norfolk is always good and professional"
Pros: "very nice flight attendant. Very helpful to have my son and I sit together. Gave me a cup of coffee when i asked. very friendly as well."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The flights were on the empty side so there was an open seat next to me"
Cons: "The first flight got delayed so I missed my connection. My connecting flight got delayed about five times and sat on the runway for over an hour. I ended getting home at eleven PM when I was anticipating getting home st 9:45 AM"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that not only was my flight cancelled but so was its replacement with no explanation."
Cons: "Our flight had a "mechanical delay" which drug on for several hours (every 30 min there would be another 30 min delay). This eventually meant we would miss our connection to Munich and had to be rescheduled to the following day. The next day we had another round of "mechanical delays" and just barely made the connection."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Worst customer service my 15 month old daughter and I have ever experienced. United airlines does not care about us one bit. They put my daughters safety at risk with such lack of compassion. Caused such unbelievable stress and chaos. I will continue to tell everyone I know how horrible this was. No one will want to fly United after they hear what my daughter and I were put thru."
Cons: "everything"
Cons: "Typical horror story... Lied to by gate attendants... Hours late to destination with no apologies... Essentially got totally screwed without reimbursement."
Pros: "Absoluteky nothing. I mean literally NOTHING. I take that back, a pilot for another flight who saw my predicament and tried his best to help me figure which flight to take in the morning. Also, as far as floors go, the airport terminal was maybe only the ninth worst I've slept on. Kudos!"
Cons: "Wretched customer service. Flight delayed multiple hours after my ride departed and stranded at airport for fourteen hours with no food or beverage comps, or even kindness from the their agents. Was told "oh well, weather". I had left my remaining cash (and didn't bring my card) with my lady friend to get the kids some nice things (she is driving back on a seperate day and was already two hours away by the time we found out flight wasn't happening in time) and absolutely zero compassion given by United. Also, required to add an 80 dollar uber when I get home because there will be no ride as my orginal ride can't make it. May also have to call out of work. Not even an offer to bump my seat on next flight to close to the cabin or exit row. Two hours on phone with customer service with no offers of even slight compensation even when this entire situation is explained. I get it. I agreed to terms of service, but your service sucked and is costing me an armful of money at this point, wouldn't it be in the slightest interest of theirs to give me a meal, or a room or even a lousy coffee?"
