One flight attendant was crazy uptight about masks. Really an unpleasant experience.

One flight attendant was crazy uptight about masks. Really an unpleasant experience.

Late departure Broken toilet

The flight probably was alright, it's just that was unable to cancel /change my plans on the app, nothing easy about it. 1st time app user- negative experience

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: "Flight and crew were wonderful. Perfectly smooth landing!"
Cons: "I really wonder about the boarding procedure... isn't "back to front" more efficient? What is this Comfort +, Main Cabin 1, Main Cabin 2, Basic thing? Is that supposed to make you feel better because you paid for a seat selection?!"
Pros: "The plane was nice, entertainment options were great, pilot was super kind."
Cons: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"
Pros: "The free upgrade"
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."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
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."
Cons: "A bit warm on the plane and late taking off."
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."
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"
Cons: "4 hour layover in ATL too long"
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: "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: "I was able to watch TV on my way to my destination."
Cons: "I upgraded for the cabin Round trip and when I flew back from my destination I didn't have the same good experience. I did not have the TV flying back. The plane was too rocky one minute going smooth then out of no where it into high speed. The plane was shaky."
Pros: "Crew and landing were fantastic"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I felt too cramped in to the plane. Our KLM FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED THE DAY BEFORE THE FLIGHT."
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: "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: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Way too many useless announcements by the copilot and the lead flight attendant. Keep it short. Don't get back on once you put the mic back. And how about announcing th baggage claim carousel if your going to interrupt as much as you did."
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: "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: "Hospitable crew"
Cons: "Na, nothing special"
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: "Lots of great food n free new movies! Crew was polite and on top of their stuff :)"
Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."

Pros: "Very friendly and curtious crew made the flight very pleasant"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Sat in airport for 8 hours while flight was delayed an hour at a time only to be cancelled after 8 hours of waiting. Had to rent a car and drive 10 hours to destination"
Pros: "They switched me to better seats"
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."

2hours delay due to not finding a flight attendant?!? And rude cabin crew

Pros: "Despite the poor rating because of the mechanical issue, I will say the pilots did a fantastic job with some pretty choppy air conditions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour while we were already on the plane. Minor mechanical issue that could’ve been handled at destination. The seat was super uncomfortable and I would’ve appreciated at least some more from the crew, like maybe even a bottle of water or something."
Pros: "On time take off and the fact that we arrived alive."
Cons: "Hot meals and inflight entertainment. No even drinks were served."
Pros: "Short, sweet and great crew."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats small"
Pros: "Crew was nice and comfort was okay."
Cons: "There was no internet most of the flight it only worked for the first 20-30 minutes of the flight then they tried resetting it but it didn’t work for the rest of the flight."
Cons: "INTERNET is difficult to figure out in these AA flights"
Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Pros: "Getting to destination"
Cons: "Seats terribly small. No leg room. Sat on runway 30 mins before departure totally cramped"
Pros: "On this flight was a female flight attendant who anticipated my every need. I wasn’t flying first class, but still, she went out of her way to treat me very well. Her personality and hospitality made my flight relaxing, made me feel loved and appreciated, and the flight felt like I was already home"
Pros: "Even on a full flight, there was enough overhead storage"
Cons: "Pretzels were lame"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Waites in line on the tarmac for 35 mins to take off in a hot plane."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "snacks"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."
Pros: "Only a small 20 minute delay - things went rather smoothly"
Pros: "Super-friendly, easy-to-understand crew"
Cons: "Too short of a flight for WiFi or snacks"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Delayed flight again. The American Airlines norm now. Seats are small. I ended up sharing part of mine with the man next to me. No food or snacks No entertainment. Not even a skymall magazine to keep me amused."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"
Cons: "Great flight great crew. Only issue was something was wrong with the entertainment system on my seat. Never worked"
Cons: "There were no TVs for each passenger especially for a 3+ hour long flight which was disappointing."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"
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."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "It was a little hot in the plane at during start and touchdown"
Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"
Cons: "Too tight, seat was uncomfortable, food was bland"

Cons: "Maybe a better food choices"
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: "Attention"
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: "•Boarding was easy - small plane. •No crazy flight maneuvers, so I guess good pilots"
Cons: "•Cash only for drinks?! C'mon AA, it's 2017. •Charging for checked bags is greedy, I don't care if others do it, that's not a good excuse + Southwest doesn't charge. •Plane left 30 min late (and arrived 30 late), then had to sit on Tarmac waiting for a gate. •Placed us at the farthest bagged claim from our arrival gate (all bagge claims walking up to ours were empty), so thanks for thinking of the customer first there. •I reserved an aisle seat, they changed me to window without asking. Thanks. •Overall, there are too many other choices in airlines... I may just be one customer, but this is one less they'll have, as other major carriers haven't ever racked up this amount of annoyances in a single trip with me before."
Cons: "Your subject headline in your email read: How was your Alaska Airlines flight to Washington? All correspondence referenced Alaska Airlines, however my flight was and American Airlines flight and in a terminal on the complete other side of the airport. I suggest you clarify on line."
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Pros: "Flight attendant, Billy, on flight to Chicago encouraged everyone to help each other figure out how to manage close connection times due to a long delay leaving Charlottesville. He then arranged for folks with short times to move forward. We would never have made our connection without him. Gate agents also kept the door open for us as we dashed to our connecting flight and hustled us on board. Amazingly the ground crew also got our luggage transferred in the short 10 minutes we had. Thank you American!"
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late . It was in the hsngar. They said they were fixing the plane. It was an old plane. No Screen anywhere . It was 5.5 flight across country. Only pretzels. I will try not to fly American again."
Pros: "On time departures, on time arrivals. Not interested in entertainment or food. Regular flier to/from Chicago & LGA"
Cons: "Seating is just way too cramped, especially for an elderly woman!"
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Flight was not full so i got two seats to myself. Movie selections was great, and crew was great ."
Cons: "Each flight delayed at least an hour"
Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"
Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"
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: "That it reassured me that American is one of the worst airlines"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to the fact that it was an old plane that had problems with the engine. All the passengers were on the plane while they were trying to fix the problem. Then all 250+ passengers had to go to the worst ticket agents ever to try to get new flights. Terrible. Awful. The worst."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same as above."

The check-in process couldn't have been worse. Besides they have no customer service to speak of, I wasn't able to purchase a 2nd checked bag prior to the trip, the app just wouldn't let me no matter what. I spent over an hour on hold waiting for a rep who wasn't able to help me. At the airport we politely asked the rep to help since we were unable. She flatly refused to do anything. When we asked to speak to a supervisor she said she was one of the most senior people there and if "We're still not happy she can give me a number to call where I can wait on hold for over 2 hours to be told the same thing I'm telling you now." Absolutely atrocious. First and definitely LAST time flying Allegiant.

On time departure and arrival.

awful service. not of kayak but of allegiant

Had to cancel flight as it was delayed by 12 hours

Pros: "Boarding was easy, there was sufficient leg room"
Cons: "No snacks unless you want to pay an arm and a leg. One stewardess snapped at me when I tried to touch a bag of chips to move it and see what was available. She could’ve been a lot friendlier! I had no way of seeing what was on the cart from my seat and had to rely on her to tell me what was available. After I bought something and she passed by, I saw something else I’d rather have but it was too late by then….and she didn’t list it as an option. In flight movies would’ve been nice, too."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Boarding was excruciatingly slow."
Cons: "Seemed understaffed at the airport, never anyone around to answer questions about why our plane wasn't even there until 20 minutes after we were supposed to have boarded. They finally showed up, but didn't mention that we'd be delayed (which I eventually found out thanks to a KAYAK alert). Kept telling us the flight would be 62 minutes, but it ended up taking forever. Probably not Allegiant's fault, but they acted like they wanted to hide the fact, rather than own up to it and apologize for the inconvenience as if they valued all of us as passengers."
Cons: "Give complimentary water"
Pros: "Flight staff nice"
Pros: "The passengers were spaced out, so we could actually social distance."
Cons: "Not all passengers wore masks. During a contagious pandemic. What the actual hell? Also, the tray tables are too small to use for anything, and we didn’t even get a free drink. Water and soda are so cheap, it’s absurd. I’d never take Allegiant again if they weren’t basically the only airline operating out of my town’s small airport."
Pros: "Comfortable leg room"
Cons: "Delayed as usual"
Cons: "More space under the seat in front of me for my carryon"
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient."
Cons: "Check in counter needed more help-line very long"
Pros: "Nonstop flight. Wish it was available year round!"
Cons: "Our boarding and flight was delayed, but we were given no explanation."
Pros: "Original low price for reservation"
Cons: "Large amount of additional fees making the original 'good' price not so 'good'"
Pros: "Crew was nice for the most part."
Cons: "Didn’t leave on time. Would be nice to get something complimentary for all the wasted time. Would like to be able to watch something"
Pros: "The crew was good , plane was delayed and late for departure. Second flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours , I just can’t catch a break !!"
Cons: "I could not log onto the website and check my carryon bag , cost me $50 at check in. It would not recognize my number for the first flight. I’m a known traveler on Frontier so I did log in with them ."
Pros: "loading was smooth, departure was a bit early, arrival in Cedar Rapids was about 30 minutes early!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Bring snacks and drinks because they charge for everything."
Pros: "I finally got home"
Cons: "We took off 3 hours late. No transparency about what the delay was or how long, they just kept stringing us along 30 minutes to an hour at a time."
Pros: "Crew was really nice! Flight was quick and easy"
Cons: "I cancelled this flight and somehow it doesn’t show in your records and now I cant find the cancellation.. I am not in Orlando.. last time I will use Kayak."
Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."
Pros: "The plane was very clean and well lit. The crew was excellent. Very friendly and nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable. They are so close together and there is no room to store anything. The tray tables are a joke, you can't even fit an iPad on them. The bag check process was trouble at both legs. They have lower weight limits than the major carriers and that really should be highlighted better when you book with Allegiant. Also, bag checkin for the flight I was on started at 7:45am. There were only 2 people at the checkin counter and one of them was busy doing something and ignoring the customers. So that was a little annoying."
Pros: "Boarding was better than other airlines."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and do NOT recline!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "initially assigned to center seat."
Pros: "Great crew fast service and flight smooth !"
Cons: "I’m tall and have some back issues I found the seats very close and not too comfortable ! I tried to get A seat by the emergency exit but wasn’t early enough on my pick !"
Pros: "Passengers were fun"
Cons: "Need entertainment"
Cons: "The seating is terrible. Everyone is like sardines packed away."
Pros: "The price was unbeatable, especially if you don't pay for a checked bag, carry-on, or a soda on the flight. Very smooth flight as well."
Cons: "The plane interior looks like it was gutted, then fitted with hard, plastic seats. No headrests, no privacy for the flight attendants. Everything costs extra."
Cons: "Seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "Price!"
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to Irma in Florida. Customer service agent was fantastic. I was able to rebook die the following week without any hassle."
Cons: "I didn't get to fly to Florida when I first chose."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Not even water provided on flight. I miss amenities."
Cons: "Nothing!!!"
Pros: "It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented."
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."
Cons: "I flew to my "surprised" 50th bday party with family and to meet more family. The aircraft problems overheated engine, caused us to get out of the plane, move all luggages and wait foe a new plane that also had to be cooled off before reboarding. We were tired and hungry. Missed my bday with family. Very very disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid for 1A. Was moved because "the crew needed the seat" to the middle. There were SO many open seats. Was unacceptable."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding outside in the pouring rain!!!"
Pros: "Good for Domestic travels"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Pros: "The stewardess remembered us from the previous flight and was awesome to my son!"
Cons: "Kind of bumpy and a little late."
Cons: "Seats were made of stone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 8 hours"
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "flight was delayed 4 hrs"
Cons: "I didn't like the schedule time change. Very inconvenient missed some of my planned festivities that were prepaid."
Pros: "The flight was fast, and direct."
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "No issues. Responsive flight attendants, on time"
Cons: "$5 to print my boarding pass at airport. and using online tools to print was not intuitive Seats that don't recline."

All is good

All is good

Over flight was ok it just sucked you had to download the United app to order food and beer and to watch movies and it would have been great probably if the app downloaded but it didn’t so it sucked not sure of the app was down or too many people trying to download it or what but other then that it was ok the seats weren’t too comfortable but I reckon that’s too be expected only my second time flying the first time none of my flights where on time but this go around they where on time with everything.

Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Perfect"

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: "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."
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."
Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"
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: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "United horrible customer service"
Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"
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."
Pros: "Left on tarmac for 20 minutes prior to takeoff. Late flying into IAD with no guidance from crew or ground crew with very short time to catch next flight. With no info, felt abandoned."
Cons: "Lack of info from United crew."
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Nothing, good flight and no problems."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which was fine because it wasn't their fault. However, they cram waaaaay too many seats into the planes. A small turboprop has more space!"
Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."
Cons: "Average seats, no in flight entertainment or beverage service"
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 $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"
Pros: "Flight was re booked and we got seats on the next flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the plane was waved off from the runway when it landed in EWR"
Pros: "Free directv because of the delays"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"
Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... 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: "Staff was courteous and professional. I had a layover and the connection was short but thankfully the staff was helpful. I will continue to do business with united."
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.."
Cons: "Overall horrible experience round trip. Issues with the planes caused delays leaving and caused my flight home to be cancelled. Flew American home. Will never fly Intied again. EVER!"
Cons: "Flights were significanly delayed that resulted in missing connecting flights. During my return trip I ran to make my connecting flight just barely on time and once boarded we sat on the plan for an hour before taking off. Flight to get to Richmond on united was a major problem. I work up with a notification that my flight time had been moved up 2.5 hours ( a problem as I live 2.5 hours away from the airport) I called and they said it was a mistake that I was good to take the origional flight. A few hours later I get a phone call from united asking if I could be at the airport 2.5 hours early. I said unfortunately no because I had already spoken to someone from united and they had reassumed me that the origional flight was still good. She then said if I couldn't make it early it was no problem. So I get to the airport at the origional time after speaking to two different agents who told me this was ok to find the plane delayed and causing me to miss my missed connection."
Cons: "The fact that only one cup of coffee with 2 creamer was the maximum I was allowed. She was no friendly at al"
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: "Everything was great we just had to sit for mechanical issues. Announcing ETAs is crucial for those of us getting picked up"
Pros: "Our flight went smoothly and we left on time. The crew was friendly and we had no delays this time around."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time and the coffee on the flight is the worst I've ever head. I feel like United gives the bare minimum when it comes to the customers and doesn't really make an effort to do more than that."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and awesome crew"
Cons: "No wifi or any entertainment"
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: "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."
Pros: "The pretzel snacks had flavoring added"
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"
Cons: "when i purchased my flight ut was for 6am. After paying for my tickets my flight time was changed to 9am. Then 24 hours prior to my flight it wad changed to 11am due to technical difficulties. This caused me to have to take a later flight out of Chicago O'Hare."
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "The cabin temperature never went below 80 degrees. Seats were very, very small. Especially when seated by a 300 lb person"
