As ALWAYS, the seating is cramped. Due. To the fact, that it was a short flight, it was tolerable.
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"
Pros: "The employees were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We haven't made it to Rochester as intended. It is covid time and our flight had mechanical difficulties. The airlines has provided vouchers for hotel and dinner."
Pros: "On time with a very pleasant crew."
Pros: "The one gentleman who came to the RESCUE at the ticket counter was AWESOME!!! AMAZING customer service, friendly, and helpful - I had someone else but it was a pleasure watching him take care of others! (He was wearing a tobagan and ear muffs making him look like he had Mickey Ears on!)"
Cons: "Only 3 people handling check in - ALL of the self service machines needed a restock on bag tags so we were all in line for tags and the one attendant at the Bag Drop kept telling us all she couldn’t print tags. WORST experience at RIC in years!"
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!"
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: "The seating is cramped as has become customary."
Pros: "great stewardess"
Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"
Pros: "There was a hood vibe from crew. I believe the good nature of the crew had a positive effect on me and follow travelers. A pleasant experience."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that would have improved the experience."
Pros: "Food was not too bad and I liked that they had snacks/ beverages out near the bathroom area for people to eat/ drink in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Wish bathroom had been cleaned more frequently. Ran out of toilet paper a few times and floor was wet. My seat was broken so I could not recline back for 17 hours and since the flight was fully booked I was unable to move seats. It made the already long flight even more uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding process was quick, seats were comfy, staff was very nice."
Pros: "Stewards were good."
Cons: "Mechanical problems and incompetent repair people who forgot to fill out paperwork delayed our flight by 3 hours. Because of this I almost missed my RESCHEDULED next flight and my bag was gate checked to baggage claim."
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"
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: "Business class crew was extremely rude and unfriendly."
Cons: "Flight crew was an hour late to the flight, whereas customers were waiting for far longer than that."
Cons: "6 hour mechanical delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."
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."
Cons: "Plane was delayed all day and when we finally boarded we were told it was due to an engine problem!! Not good!!"
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."
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: "it was easy to check in and short layovers"
Cons: "planes were really old and uncomfortable, I could not sleep at all, the seats are ridiculously small and not fit for a grown up. One of the worst flights ever for sure"
Pros: "Boarding was structured as usual"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. No reason was given. There seemed to be an issue with the maintenance log, which I overheard I arrived late to Piarco"
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: "I was 10 minutes late for the flight. People were still lined up to board and the customer service agent taking the tickets refused to accept mine and told me I would have to reschedule. Instead of allowing me to board in line with the other passengers, they choose to delay the flight by another 30 minutes to put in a request to pull my luggage from the flight. It would have been so much easier to just let me board. I've been a few minutes late before and have never been treated like that by any airline. Very disappointed in American Airlines."
Cons: "I was 10 minutes late for the flight. People were still lined up to board and the customer service agent taking the tickets refused to accept mine and told me I would have to reschedule.

It would have been so much easier to just let me board. I've been a few minutes late before and have never been treated like that by any airline. Very disappointed in American Airlines."
Pros: "Crew, clean"
Cons: "Flight delayed as we were pushing back from the gate."
Pros: "They were able to use the electronic boarding pass through the app which is nice. Boarding was really quick."
Cons: "The overhead bins didn't have enough space for carry on for everybody flying."
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "The crew and all employees were very nice and did their best to ensure that my travels went smoothly. The flight was not so comfortable but I didn't mind much. Over all good flight"
Pros: "Security checkpoint was very quick, being a Sunday morning, and we departed on time. Everything was very normal."
Cons: "Delay boarding and then dropped us off at a remote runway and had to wait 45 minutes for a bus to main terminal!"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Pros: "The food was good. The flight attendants were friendly and provided good customer service. The flight was pretty smooth (little turbulence)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 11 hours for maintenance. They provided car service back to our home but we waited an hour at JFK for the vendor Skyway to arrive. The car had a bad odor and the driver didn't know who he was picking up or where he was taking us. Should seriously consider contracting with a different vendor. The next morning, after we boarded, we waited an hour on the plane before taking off while they searched for a maintenance book. The entertainment system did not work at all nor did the Wi-Fi. Overall American Airlines did a very poor job communicating the delays ahead of time. I won't be flying an international flight with AA again."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"
Cons: "United canceled the flight ~36 hours in advance of the departure time because of anticipated severe weather. The forecast did not include any bad weather, and the apparent reason for the cancellation was excess capacity on routes to non-Newark United hubs from Norfolk. United refused to accommodate us on a comparable flight on another airline, and Delta offered a direct flight for less money than we originally paid United. United alienated a previously loyal United customer."
Cons: "more room Im 5'5 and I felt like I was 6ft tall that how tiny the sits are...."
Pros: "The crew was nice and came by often."
Cons: "There was a dog on the 10 hour flight, I thought United Airlines had an 8 hour limit. The dog barked throughout the flight, so obviously it was a pet not a service animal. UA needs to enforce its own policy."
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: "Crew was friendly, professional, and communicative."
Pros: "Friendly crew and comfortable seats"
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: "Not a crowded flight, Norfolk is usually a easy transit even when busy."
Cons: "Very cramped seating when your 6’ 260;"
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: "Flight left on time, landed early and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment options were limited with no TVs provided and wifi only for portion of flight, and the seats did recline very much."
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: "They delayed the flight 4 hrs knowing there was issues with the plan and lingered us on what's going on. The staff prepared to leave and come back while we wait thinking we was going to be on time smh, no real snack and no t.v. unless you pay to watch it"
Cons: "The delays and cancellations overwhelmed the gate attendant. She was not able to effectively manage the situation and quickly became chaotic"
Pros: "- Call of apology next morning to say my luggage was found and would come in that night"
Cons: "- My luggage did not make the connection into POS - No United staff meeting flight in PoS to take my report of lost luggage"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "Despite all the restrictions, my wife and I were able to be seated together."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I was not aware that I was booking a seriously restricted flight, ie no carry on baggage, can't sit together, etc. This is the first time I experienced these kinds of restrictions on a major airline. I did not like the having to pay for checked baggage of a carry on. A bit too much."
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: "The safe did a great job"
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: "Everything, TSA agent said my guess is as good as his when and if we are leaving I was upset at that kind of response. Never will use united ariline agian."
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."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight from Newark to Ft. Lauderdale due to a 30 minute weather delay, and then an hour long delay imposed by Newark Airport due to air traffic volume. I had to sleep (barely due to all of the nighttime maintenance going on) on the damn floor by my standby gate because I couldn't afford a hotel and United refused to pay for one."
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: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed for an excessive amount of time before the flight was finally Cancelled. Got stuck waiting for over 7hrs before the flight was eventually cancelled. Barley made it home in time for my grandfather's funeral as a result."
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."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job tried to hit as little turbulence as possible. Smooth landing. Flight attendants were very nice from Norfolk to Newark"
Cons: "Both planes were late, and you sent this questionnaire before flight had even arrived in Omaha"
Cons: "I had a death I my family you charge me $300 dollars to change my ticket you put me in a middle seat that was not reclining"
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."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour late because soeone forgot to turn the batteries off. After waiting 50 minutes in line they would not assis with new connections endwd ip spending the next four hours getting to a new Airport and flight which was also late"
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: "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: "I think your agents on up did well handling rebooking and upset people. I was told I would miss my flight first thing this morning but the agent was able to get me on and I arrived in CR only 1. Hour late. Thank you for the great service. It has to be hard picking up the pieces after the hurricane."
Pros: "Absolutely no delay. Great assistance provided by flight attendants to ensure that everyone quickly secured their hand luggage."
Cons: "No issues to complain about"
Pros: "wheelchair and cart to get to my plane because of a knee injury"
Pros: "Appreciated the heads up of slight flight delay and baggage carousel location."
Pros: "Norfolk is always good and professional"
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"
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: "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?"
Pros: "It took me to my destination safe"
Cons: "Over book Some staff attitude No inflight free movies or music selection thank god I had my iPad an I phone ...."
Pros: "That despite leaving late we arrived on time."
Cons: "The delays due to unorganization."
