Great customer service. Safety and cleanliness. Fly delta.
2hours delayed and didn't give notification right away 🤷♀️. I even lost my food to rush to go to the airport. Paid $60 for seafood plate ending just leave it almost halfway on my way to the airport find out the flight was delayed. I wish they have more accurate policy to let passengers knows for any problems about the flight as soon or as early they can
I like that I got to my destination safely.
The TSA screening is absolutely unnecessary. It is dehumanizing and has been proven to be in-effective!
Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card.
Really accommodating staff, and on flight amenities. I would fly with Delta again.
Pros: "The seats were very good. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We had a connection in Detroit. The flight from Seattle to Detroit arrived about 30 minutes late, and we barely made the connection. Apparently Delta had not told the Detroit-Boston flight to wait a few minutes for us. We did make the connection, but we arrived at the gate with no seat assignment (we had been bumped the day before from our original flight because of a mechanical problem) as the plane was loading. Had we missed the flight, we would have had to spend the night in Detroit and go to Boston the next day. Delta should have told the gate agent that we were coming."
Pros: "Crew attentive, professional, appeared to be enjoying job with full plane."
Cons: "The mew food boxes in furst class taste terrible."
Pros: "Sitting in the exit row"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Mask enforcement"
Pros: "Clean safe comfortable plane seats. friendly staff."
Cons: "A small credit for miles as the Wifi didn’t work."
Cons: "Having cocktails available on-board"
Cons: "The exit row that I paid up for, for leg room, didn't have extra leg room. First world problems."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "The boarding did not go on time. An announcement about why would have been nice. Still made it on the flight on time."
Pros: "This was a redeye flight which are never the best. We upgraded to first class for a chance to sleep. The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling."
Pros: "It was nice that the plane was not packed full."
Cons: "Box water instead of water bottles. The seat wasn’t very comfortable since it wouldn’t recline."
Cons: "The Seattle gate agents never said which flight they were calling and since neighboring gates were boarding at the same time it was very confusing and rather chaotic."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive. I appreciated the extra spacing between passengers."
Cons: "I would have liked to see alcohol served."
Pros: "There was an amazing variety of tv shows and movies. That is essential for long flights like ours was."
Cons: "For long haul flights, I am used to being offered a pillow/blanket, even when sitting in economy."
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Pros: "Everything from hospitality to the ease of the flight. Captain communicated to put all at ease during this time in which this pandemic has gotten many fearful of flying. Great landing as well."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight in general was okay"
Cons: "The plane itself and seating was filthy, some unknown substance fell on me from the vent above, there was a bunch of crumbs in the seat buckle that fell out all over my lap when I fastened it. I'm not sure the tray table was wiped down, or at least not very well. The in-flight tracker was completely incorrect, I was on a 4-hour flight and it read 14 hours and counting throughout."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No leg room for 6’6” person."
Pros: "Average flight. Crew was polite."
Cons: "On time performance. Barely made my connecton, because of flight delay. Seems like only 1 in 5 flights are on time according to flightaware.com."
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Pros: "I love all the complementary stuff on flight"
Cons: "Better ear buds"
Pros: "Everything! Thank you"
Cons: "Nothing. Thanks"
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Cons: "2 seats and neither tv/entertainment centres worked....unacceptable on a 10 hr flight!"
Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Cons: "Departure delayed by 1hr30"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."
Cons: "Partner site said it was Aeromexico. First flight was delta so different check bag policy for internal flight that cost me $80. Screw you all"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t care about you or to help, the llady was so rude and unfriendly, this situation ruin my whole trip"
Cons: "I call in advance to paid the fees for baggage, I call Aeromexico because was the main airline for the fly, but Delta at Seattle made me paid again the fees for baggage’s even by phone they said that I didn’t need to paid. BE AWARE AND CAREFUL BECAUSE THE LADIES IN THE FRONT DESK didn’t even look the paperwork that you have in hand, they only want to charge you saying that your payment thru Aeromexico didn’t help you in the 1st fly. How this can happen when Delta and Aeromexico are two subsidiary one of another ?"
Pros: "Boarding is easy as always, I like Delta's system."
Cons: "I had a seat by an exit door. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight due to the cold air comin in and hitting my feet / legs. Two coats and a blanket weren't enough to remedy the issue."
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."
Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we were put in another flight next night. But the staff in Buenos Aires run the situation chaotically and made mistakes that infuriated many passengers. They need more training to learn how to say "I am sorry" more often and know how to avoid getting into arguments with passengers."
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "Good Snacks, crew is friendly, toilet was clean and we arrived on time"
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "I never got to fly !!! I was flying to Rio de Janeiro from USA and my flight got canceled, so I never made it to Rio therefore I wasn’t able to fly to São Paulo . I called you guys and the airline to see what you could do for me . Very bad customer service considering there’s a pandemic. I understand certain flights are non refundable but during the circumstances you could’ve gave a voucher to use later but instead you tried to charge me more money to make changes when I didn’t even know when I was able to fly. To all this I lost my money and my chance to fly later . Never again I will buy anything from Kayak . You just lost a customer!!!"
Cons: "Include the luggage into the price of the ticket, Brazilian airliners often charge luggage separately."
Pros: "The crew was realy nice"
Pros: "Did us a favor and made check in in the counter"
Cons: "Food was pretty basic....no entertainment whatsoever kids were desperate"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Waiting while we were boarding, the plane was about 35 degrees with no A/c everyone was melting"
Cons: "Que funcione Latam Enterteinment o tenga pantalla de entretenimiento"
Cons: "To be denied my flight, and no refund."
Pros: "Aircraft look new and very clean."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. It would be better if they kept the flights on time specially this time of the year. They had several flights daily from São Paulo to Rio, no reason to be late. It would be better if the employees knew the rules about their work. Everything very disorganized from the gate number to the carry on allowed in the plane. I will never fly with Gol again."
Pros: "Nice new plane."
Cons: "Boarding process could be better"
Cons: "I had two USB chargers at my seat, but neither worked :("
Cons: "Time - delayed twice - missed connection"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Flight was full. Good leg room. Tight being between fellow passengers."
Cons: "Check in was confusing."
Pros: "Pessoas super simpáticas e atenciosas. Assento com muito espaço para as pernas (eu estava na fileira com a porta de emergência)."
Cons: "Houve um atraso grande na saída. O tempo para a minha conexão no Rio ficou curto, então não consegui jantar no aeroporto."
Pros: "The space between sits in the airplane"
Cons: "The timing"
Pros: "Nothing about the airline Avoid if you can"
Cons: "Their customers service We were runnjngblate due to traffic but arrived with an hour before takeoff and they refused us to enter We had no bags to check in just hand luggage and they refused us to check in as their automatic check in service did not recognise our booking Total rubbish airline"
Cons: "El vuelo despegó una hora tarde, nos hicieron cambiar de avión."
Cons: "The trip was awesome, Rio is a wonderful city, extremely hot but a beautiful city"
Cons: "More efficient check in. Waiting in line far too long at gate."
Cons: "Horrible experience. With a CONFIRMED seat with GOL airlines- and checking in two hours before flight- I was told flight was oversold and they did not have ANY seats on the plane. REBOOKED on flight from different airport two hours away! Awful!!!!!"
Cons: "Not remarkable at all. Terrible food."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The check in and punctuality of boarding, take off and arrival was excellent. The flight was enjoyable. I would travel again."
Cons: "I didn’t like the snacks."
Pros: "Their boarding is more orderly than many Brazilian airlines."
Cons: "check in was difficult. Their app is terrible - check in was not allowed.. The website is worse - it couldn't link my locator number to my account. And the gate check in had an absurdly small number of kiosks and no one to help the confused passengers. Boarding was done on time and they kept the door open for 20 minutes after take off time with no announced reason for the delay."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane. Very little air conditioning."
Cons: "Extremely cramped. They ran out of certain drinks. Confusing boarding."
Pros: "Nice people once you get to an agent"
Cons: "Long lines of confused people trying to figure out which is the right one for them. Need more people giving orientation as people arrive to GRU airport."
Pros: "No horário... bagagens já estavam na esteira quando chegamos"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpfull during the flight"
Cons: "The food was tasteless . They lost our bags and never reply when we ask for a compensation"
Pros: "Airplane was new."
Cons: "Punctuality (40min delay), bad service."
Pros: "Good landing"
Cons: "Messed up when looking for a seat ..many people from front door n many people from back door"
Pros: "Traveling from JFK TO GRU. Fight got delay by 2 hrs. Arrived at GRU 8:28. Got the luggage in 20-25 mins. Run like crazy to the check in 15 min. Got there by 9:15 only to find out it’s been closed for checking bags. I beg , implore and there’s nothing to be done. Pay extra for 2 extra bags, for what? Nothing. Lost about $75 altogether non refundable. SUCKS."
Cons: "What’s to like? Because of 30 they couldn’t added mire luggage. Begging imploring it didn’t matter. Ok I didn’t like loosing $75. Who’s gonna refund? Nobody. SUCKS"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "fast flight, cofy seats!"
Pros: "Equipe atenciosa Sistema de entreterimento funcionou bem. Comida boa."
Pros: "I had a plesent flight with good food and good service both ways, the flight timing and connection was very good and the pricing of the jurnay was good. I will defently use the company the next time when I am traveling the same route later. Best regards Jan Christian Nygaard,"
Cons: "I have no comments to add hear, because everything went fine."
Pros: "el vuelo estuvo bastante bien"
Cons: "casi perdemos el vuelo porque no nos podian despachar las valijas, nadie hablaba ingles o español para que nos podemos hacer entender y terminamos pagando el doble por despachar el equipaje"
Cons: "The width of the seats were too small."
Pros: "Las instalaciones en perfecto estado todo en funcionamiento"
Cons: "Los sobrecargo un poco antipáticos deberían de colocar más aeromozas"
Pros: "Las instalaciones en perfecto estado todo en funcionamiento"
Cons: "Los sobrecargo un poco antipáticos deberían de colocar más aeromozas"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional"
Cons: "no entertainment. No leg room"
Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."
Pros: "In general is fine, but the same price of all the other airlines . I flew 3 hours and no tv! (and no meal) I'd fly Avianca next time: They all have your personal tv and gives you meal even for short flights."
Cons: "It was on time."
Cons: "Acentos muito apertados."
Cons: "Me gustaría que además de portugués e inglés, se hablara español, tener en cuenta que sale de Buenos Aires"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online because system was down and at the airport they had trouble printing my ticket because of a challenge between kayak (flight network) and Gol. Literally hours wasted."
Cons: "They had only 4 people checking in the luggages and the lines was huge ... my wait in line was longer than my fight which I think it's absurd"
Pros: "The crew. They are very careful."
Cons: "They charge me by my baby stroller! They lost part of my bag. Never more I will travel by GOL."
Pros: "A equipe de bordo agradável, mas o check-in pessimo"
Pros: "No primeiro trecho que fiz (Salvador - Congonhas) a aeronave era nova e bastante confortável. O voo chegou ao destino em menos tempo do que previsto."
Cons: "Enquanto o embarque está ocorrendo o ar condicionado fica desligado na aeronave, o que provoca muito calor no ambiente. Lembrando que o processo de embarque normalmente demora um tempo razoável."
The plane is old and really small. Crew was great
Cons: "It sure what could have been better other than all bulkhead seats are terrible for taller people."
Pros: "I was able to return home after my flight had been cancelled."
Cons: "While rebooking my flight from Phoenix the rebooking agent been yelling at me to pull my mask back after I was trying to answer her questions while trying talk over all the other customers. I feel that it was unnecessary and over done."
Cons: "I was in the only full row on the plane. The flight attendant waited until we couldn’t move to offer us to move to empty rows. By the time we were able to move, the other people in the row were sleeping. I wanted to stretch but couldn’t. Not a great way to start 2021."
Cons: "First time wearing face mask all the time. It was okay."
Cons: "When I arrived to check in at 5:48am for my 6:20am flight, I was treated very poorly. The lady at the counter asked me what time my flight was and I said 6:20 and right off the bat she was extremely rude and said that I missed the flight. I panicked internally and asked her how that was possible?! She said the cutoff was at 5:45am and I missed it. I asked if there were other flights available today or tomorrow and she said there was nothing she could do and that I had to call the booking company to see if they could book me. I wanted to cry because my friend had just dropped me off and I called to see if she was close enough to turn back. Luckily she hadn’t left yet. I called the booking company and they were able to book me a trip for the following day but they charged me an additional $100. I wish they had disclosed that we need to be there 45 minutes to an hour early otherwise you miss your flight. And it’s ridiculous that I had to pay an extra $100... financially it was stressful due to the covid 19 situation. I was extremely disappointed in how the lady at the check in counter at American Airlines treated me. She www extremely rude and I have never been spoken to in a way that made me feel attacked."
Pros: "The staff at seatac airport were condescending and not helpful...traveling with a service dog and made to pay the pet fee and talked about me where I can over hearnthen in a manner that embarassed me"
Cons: "A little discouraged that AA doesn’t offer a TV in the headrest for 1st class customers"
Pros: "Absolutely positively nothing."
Cons: "Everything literally!! Plane down for maintenance, rebooked four times and not willing to spend 48 hours in an airport due to incompetence. Never flying American Airlines. Will use Delta from now on."
Pros: "Good crew, appeared to work we’ll together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for charging devices. Should have some educational label somewhere on that."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and pleasant making for a good experience."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Did not cramp anywhere entire flight. Great air vent control."
Cons: "Boarding was weird. Many Passengers in the last rows put their bags up by row 20 so that made boarding and disembarking slower and harder as we had to go forward extra rows to use the back empty bins and then fight against traffic to get back to our seats. Passing bags up when leaving or waiting to"
Pros: "The internet and movies"
Cons: "The AC was not turned up it was very hot and even after I asked nothing was done."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfo"
Pros: "Seats in first class were comfortable. It was nice to get a cocktail right away."
Cons: "A real snack would have been nice after boarding"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Traveling with 2 seniors in their 80’s. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect."
Pros: "Great crew. Falafel meal was delish."
Cons: "My seat was broken and didn’t recline. I booked first class bc of a bad back, so I count on that. Salad was wilted and gross. Plane didn’t have plug ins for phone! Entertainment system didn’t work well- movie kept buffering. Sky texting wouldn’t work either."
Pros: "The trip went as scheduled and arrived on time. The service was good making it a pleasant experience overall."
Cons: "As with most airlines, the seating is cramped."
Cons: "Missed the flight"
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Timing is perfect if you can sleep on a red-eye flight. Fairly empty flight. enough empty seats to move and stretch out."
Cons: "No entertainment center built-in to the seats. On board WiFi can be used to access movies and other entertainment on the your own device but make sure your battery is charged and you have an external battery also since the seats don't have power. I tried to sleep but it is not easy for me to fall sleep when the seat back reclines only 3 inches so I didn't have luck taking a nap. Conclusion: I am not taking this flight any more. I will go back to taking will switch back to flying Delta even though there are no direct flights."
Pros: "They were rude and disrespectful."
Cons: "They were rude and disrespectful."
Pros: "Even though looked like I had selected a seat assignment they were not booked. On first leg of trip had to wait until a couple agreed to be bought off their seats before we could be boarded. Very misleading."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the top compartments. The crew was not very helpful because I almost went into a hypothermia condition because the air in the cabin was extremely cold. When I ask for a blanket one of the stewardesses said that AA would no longer have blankets in flight which I prove it wrong when I saw in the flight Mai-SDQ blanquets all over the cabin. The soliton they gave me was that they would ask the crew to raise the temp in the cabin, I had to make the request three times and I had to tell the stewardess that if not raising the temperature in the cabin I could have gone into an emergency hypothermia crisis. I had to take another shirt from my carry-on to put it over my shirt to warm me up."
Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."
Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."
Pros: "For this flight I was seated in first class (I scheduled it this way; it wasn't due to a last minute upgrade) and the flight attendant was very personable and attentive :-) Service was wonderful and the meal was great! Of course, the flight attendant made sure to keep our beverages topped off as needed. It was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "The boarding process for just about any airline is nearly identical. It always seems like it takes longer to board than expected even if, in reality, it's not an unreasonable amount of time. The only think I didn't care for was that overhead storage in the area I was sitting was just about full by the time I was seated which meant that I had to store my carry on a few rows behind where I sat. This meant that during off-boarding I needed to go against the flow of people to get back to my carry on. All in all, it was a minor inconvenience."
Pros: "Our pilot was great. Kept us informed, was pleasant and got us in early. I appreciated the extra information he provided regarding expected turbulance and arrival updates."
Cons: "There wasn't individual entertainment unless i used my own device."
Pros: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."
Cons: "For the planes first flight of the day the crew deicing process caused a 75 minute delay. On return flight at 10:15 pmwe waited on the runway for over 30 minutes because the ground crew wasn’t ready. There were no other planes in or out anytime near our landing"
Pros: "seats comfy, seemed like a newer plane, crew was lovely."
Cons: "usual complaints about domestic flights - not having free headphones and not having free snacks."
Pros: "The flights were good. The cancellation was handled poorly."
Cons: "AA’s flight was canceled from Seattle to JFK. The flight was then rescheduled to Newark and then Orly. The main problem is that the change didn’t include the infant on lap ticket and ended up with 2 hours in Newark trying to rectify the situation."
Cons: "Luggage allowance policy was not clear, so that they can try to charge passengers extra fee. Airline blames on one another when it comes to connecting flight if we purchased a one stop flight"
Pros: "Boarding was okay, flight was on time departing and arriving."
Cons: "No USB chargers in the seats for SEA-MIA segment of trip, but they had it for short hour flight from MIA-SJU? Long haul flights need the USB outlets!!"
Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew did a very good job and were very nice. The Meal was excellent as was the coffee. Overall, service was excellent."
Cons: "First Class needs a total redo as the seats were not as nice as on newer planes. Rest room in First Class is way too small and cramped. WiFi did not work well, and there were no individual screens on the backs of the seats. The First Class on this plane was really bad and needs some rethinking by American."
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Cons: "I really can't believe that this flight didn't have in headrest screens or USB power to keep you devices charged. This was a 6 hour flight across the US. If they don't provide entertainment, at least let the people charge their devices."
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding went well, smooth flight."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, they only served soft drinks and a small biscotti. What happened to an actual meal??"
Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was friendly, cordial which is not good at all on flights by United Airlines, Delta American Airlines and Air Canada. Flight from Miami-Sao Paulo was nice and no too long as when I fly through Toronto by Air Canada or through Chicago by USA airlines."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight in the middle of the night and rebooked for 3 hours later really strapping me for time at my destination"
Cons: "We were told the overhead was full, so we had to check our bags, but once we boarded there were complete compartments empty. I suspect they were just trying to depart earlier."
Pros: "Customer Service at SEA was great. we were checking bags directly to Madrid and they were very helpful"
Cons: "I had paid for a Bulk head seat Row 7. But since we had a in Cabin pet, my wife was moved down to Row 18 and a much smaller seat. I need to get a refund for the price I paid."
Cons: "Gate agent said there was a maintenance problem that just needed maintenance to sign off. Over heard maintenance work while boarding that could not get message on computer of problem. Pushed back and sat on tarmac for 10-20 minutes as pilot said they worked through maintenance issue."
Pros: "The employee working the desk in Seattle was great. Long lines to check in and she took the time to assign us seats next to each other. Loved the bonus of the seats being in an exit row."
Cons: "Flight changed with no notification."
Cons: "Your plane needs outlets to charge electronics. Unless your gonna show movies on your flights, ppl need a way to entertain themselves for the flight. If they burn through all their battery power, it's an inconvenience to try to charge it in the airport when they land. All of the outlet Chargers in Chicago, Seattle and Philly were broke as well. The U tied wing was amazing. Your prices are great but to keep ppl from rather paying more just for one or two more luxuries, try fixing this."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using onboard wifi, as well as 2 tv shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Cons: "My flight was changed 3 times-- always pick a window seat and was changed to aisle seat. The attitude at the ticket counter was "you're lucky to get any seat", flight was overbooked, the boarding process and deplaning were absurd with all the people bringing on way too much carry on luggage !!! It takes almost 30 min to get off the plane!!"
Pros: "My window seat"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in to my flight 24 hours prior to my flight on my AA app and or website. Also wasn't able to check in at kiosk at airport therefore had to wait in line to check in with a clerk which slowed my whole trip mood down."
Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."
Cons: "The air conditioning"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours making me late for the next two flights and ultimately costing me an entire day longer in transit. While I understand these things happen, Air Canada's response to me asking for help was abysmal. Ultimately, they didn't care and told me it was my problem. Sadly, one of the first people I talked to really did want to help and arranged flights that would have gotten me back on track but he was prevented from confirming the changes due to management. I will never fly with Air Canada ever again."
Cons: "There needed to be vegetarian options."
Pros: "Cancelled 30 minute flight up to Vancouver which reaulted in missed flight to Australia. Air Canada the refused to put us on another flight. Went round and round for 5 hours with Air Canada until they finally put us on 3 separate flights getting to our deatination almost 48 hours late.Horrible"
Cons: "Notify passengers if short flight has more than 20% chance of being cancelled. We could have easily driven to Vancouver. If flight is cancelled, then own up to it and put people on next flight."
Cons: "Boarding in the rain is definitely not a good experience! The flight delayed so long that some of us who had connecting flights had to run from gate to gate (including clearing Canada customs) within 20 mins. Last but not least, Taipei Taiwan should NOT be listed as China."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt stay reclined. I spent the hole flight pressing the button back. During the night I needed the assistance of the flight atendent. I had to press the button three times so that anyone could come to me. Didnt find the crew very willing to repeat some needed information about the food too. The airplane was full and simply there werent enough toilets for this amout of people there. Honestly, it was a terrible experience."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"
Cons: "Unreliable flight, always late, not staff at the check in terminal"
Cons: "Food was mediocre, I’d expect a bit more for the price paid."
Cons: "Took 3 hours to get our drinks. Completely out of inventory with food and snacks. Very hot on the plane . WiFi didn’t work/ they charged for headphones which i haven’t even heard of. My tray table was completely crooked , i had to place my drinks on my husbands table. Overall, just terrible."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so I missed my connection to Brazil, was left stranded in Toronto for 24h without a hotel or restaurant voucher."
Cons: "I was unable to board because I didn't have an ETA - I was unaware of this requirement until check in. I was only transiting thru Canada - the ground staff were horrible."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Missed the connection in Vancouver in which crew could not be found and were not helpful. Ended up using another airline's counter for help to catch another flight out. Luggage was left in Vancouver. Eva Airline helped with luggage location and shipping to final destination."
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Pros: "Air Canada's airplane cleanliness is second to none in my book. That's why I always fly with them... Or rather flew..."
Cons: "The unending stream of excuses and explanations failed to convince me that this was anything but mismanagement that caused a delay of 5 hours. We'd be told something, and told the exact opposite, or a contradicting statement 15 minutes later. You botched this one bad Air Canada."
Pros: "the crew was very kind with getting those with close connecting flights off first."
Cons: "it was an hour late."
Cons: "Better luggage Service"
Pros: "movie selection on international flight was great."
Cons: "Had a serious delay, which was not acknowledged in anyway. We just waited near the gate for a long, long time. Also, for one of my flights, my group number was never called. I asked the flight attendant about it (when I passed through the gate after most other customers had boarded) and she flippantly responded with something like, "Yeah, maybe I didn't call your boarding zone. I don't know. Whatever." This left a terrible first impression on me."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."
Pros: "Nothing. NOTHING."
Cons: "It took two hours to check my bag at the airport. The plane engine needed to be jump started, and I missed my connection flight to Paris. I had to spend an entire day stuck in Toronto, sick from terrible Hotel and airport food, cheap vouchers for terrible food, I missed my traveling companion who made the flight to Paris. I left my hat on the plane after the terrible flight in which they refused us any basic courtesies for the numerous passengers who were about to be stranded, and then the grooming crew kept my hat instead of turning it in to lost and found. Best part? Customer service told me that since I booked via Kayak, that I was not a valued customer and that they would not extend any courtesies to me for destroying my work trip itinerary."
Cons: "Took forever to board"
Pros: "Friendly service is so important to me - and the staff and flight crew at Air Canada met all my expectations. I had the displeasure of flying United on the way to Seattle and I must say the service at Air Canada is far above!"
Pros: "Short, comfortable seats"
Pros: "The seats were fairly comfortable for such a small plane."
Cons: "There was no meal on an international flight of more than four hours."
Pros: "The new airplane 787 is really a nice airplane"
Cons: "The flight delayed 1:45, making me lose my connection"
Cons: "Flight delayed again and again. Waited for hours at the airport until they cancelled the flight."
Cons: "Food was terrible especially for Prem economy. Chicken dish very bad. Difficult to get a second glass of wine with main meal."
Cons: "They didn't let me board because I changed the original return ticket paying with a different credit card (still mine)...although they processed the payment and sent me a confirmation ticket"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"
Pros: "I was not charged overweight for going over by 2 pounds since I had a Business Class ticket connection to my final destination."
Cons: "For an almost 4 hours, 400 USD international flight I would have expected to have at least a snack to eat a one luggage to check in on the price. I am an international traveler which doesn't have a choice but to carry a suitcase. Not to say that once on board I was requested to check in my carry on because there was no room on the plane and that I had to travel with my personal item on my feets since there was no available room at the over the head compartiment since I was identified with Zone 5 boarding."
Pros: "Service in the cabin was great."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Comfort. Individual screens"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an overnight flight and we had our seats changed to the back row without being told. The seats would not recline and when the seats in front of us reclined for the entire flight, the screen and chair were about a foot from our faces. This was hands down the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew Wulf not move us as the flight was full, and despite there being more than half of the first class seats available, they would not let us sit there. I will likely not fly air canada again given this experience."
Pros: "Food was good, service good in business cabin"
Cons: "We left late, and despite it being obvious we were going to leave late, all the information posted at the gate and on the web said on time. Why is it that airlines don't tell the truth about departures and arrivals times?"
Pros: "Didn't have much good with air canada. Some of the worst customer service I've experienced. Flight was fine."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late, made us miss our layover even though they said they were holding our following flight to Tokyo. The both of us along with 10 others on our flight got to the gate 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave and they wouldn't let anyone on. Missed the first day of our honeymoon trip along with unrefundable hotel fees. I travel a lot and never had an experience like this before."
Pros: "I accidentally left my tablet behind when I disembarked. The crew located it and brought it to me speedily while I waited in the baggage area. I'm truly grateful and impressed. All of the flight crew were delightful and thoughtful."
Cons: "The flight from Vancouver to Seattle on the 31st of July was delayed by two and a half hours, the return flight on August 5 topped that by one hour resulting in a delay of more than three and a half hours and a missed connection flight to Port Hardy. I had to stay in Vancouver over night and my husband had to pick me up in Campbell River. This meant a car drive to and back Campbell River of six hours instead of one hour to Port Hardy."
Pros: "The flight was less than an hour. So I don't expect anything."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Cons: "40 min flight delayed for 1 and a half hours. Missed connecting flight. Staff was extremely rude to the hordes of people inquiring about missing their connecting flight, and were given different instructions."
Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "When I flew to Toronto the plane left 15 mins late but arrived an hour an twenty min late. No turbulence or trouble, just late. I stepped off that plane to my connector to Paris when boarding was suppose to start but that plane was on an hour delay. The food is just horrible, anyone who has flown knows this, and on both flights first class was the only priority. They got to everyone else when it was convenient. This was my first time flying with Air Canada and will certainly be my last. I'll happily pay a little more for the other airlines. So if you fly with them, good luck to you."
Pros: "Normal economy flying, you get a seat and line to the bathroom. I am thankful we are not traveling the old ways. I am over expecting too much when you don't pay much for it."
Cons: "Paid for breakfast but did not get it. However, I did not say anything to the attendant."
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."
Pros: "I never could take this flight as Air Canada, with its unwelcome policy, needs a transit visa to change flights in Toronto. The sad part is, vayama and Air Canda (mis-spelled on purpose - deserves even less respect) do not even offer a partial credit if I want to cancel. Never am I going to use any of these or perhaps visit a bass-ackwards country like canada"
Cons: "I never could take this flight as Air Canada, with its unwelcome policy, needs a transit visa to change flights in Toronto.

Never am I going to use any of these or perhaps visit a bass-ackwards country like canada"
Pros: "Air Canada has the best food, most leg room for economy class and super efficient. I will be using Air Canada often in the future."
Pros: "It got me from point A to point B, without turbulence and much hassle."
Cons: "- Interior of Airplane was filthy. Walls blackened, greasy. Didnt want to touch anything, Bathroom was dirty. -One of the attendants was patronizing if not rude to guests. Sort of had bad attitude. I was spared any trouble however. -Food felt like jail food. Just the cheapest goop ever. -I understand it was a full flight with lots of Brazilians, so they didnt put much effort into it, but still, the least they should do is change their catering company."
Delayed flight was communicated in advance but still led to a missed connection
Pros: "Everyone was nice and helped with any questions I had"
Cons: "Logging into the internet from the iPad"
Pros: "The crew was nice. When I finally arrived in Denver, Marlin in customer service was the only saving grace for United for me. When I asked for options for an earlier flight into Rapid City so I didn’t have to wait 24 hours and miss my visit with my sister, he looked at different hubs (Chicago, Minneapolis) to see if they had any available flights into Rapid, he checked for double bookings, and when he couldn’t find anything, he put me on the standby list for the first flight out in the morning and wrote down the flight information for all of the United flights from Denver for the following day. Marlin provided excellent customer service and was a huge credit to the company."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 3:56 pm and didn’t leave until 7:30 pm. I would estimate at least 15-20 people missed connecting flights because of the delay. According to the United app, the delay initially started in Portland due to mechanical issues, which took over 3 hours. Then, there was a weather delay in San Francisco according to the gate agent - there was a ground hold and no planes were landing or flying out. At some point, I would think another plane would have been an option rather than delaying a flight for this long and disrupting holiday travel for so many people."
Pros: "All the flights were on time."
Cons: "If the flight left on time - I missed my connection"
Pros: "Nice, normal flight."
Cons: "Pilots not there on time, arrived perhaps 30 minutes late, didn’t say why."
Pros: "I had really awful sinus pain on the flight and the crew was very helpful and sympathetic"
Cons: "The entertainment system was pretty lame (DirectTV) and of course the now-typical lack of food and beverage items for domestic flights"
Pros: "Was your standard airlplane."
Cons: "Plane was delayed due to a mechanical, then again because the cleaning crew didn’t do a good enough job the first time, then a seat mechanical, and then the truck used to back out onto the tarmac broke down"
Pros: "Nothing, and I’m a very agreeable person.... Always"
Cons: "Every person employed by United is either overworked until the point of jadedness is issued with their first paycheck, or they get paid in Monopoly money. There were flight delays, and really I was good with that, but when I approached a staff member, he literally said “what do you want?!” Before I even opened my mouth. The phone lines are operated by someone in a foreign country. And after the flight caused me an overnight layover, they offer you a measly discount voucher for a place to stay. I can only hope that someone out there is getting better treatment than the poor people I saw on this flight, or at any united desk I attempted to get help from."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the flight was on time. The crew was courteous."
Cons: "I selected economy comfort in the kayak app, but when I called about my boarding pass, kayak said they only sell basic economy. What did I buy? UAL only sells a limited selection of overpriced food. There is no music and you have to pay to see the flight map."
Cons: "We missed the whole vacation due to United flt. 599 being late into SFO. We missed the Zurich flight by 7 minutes due to a mechanical issue (overhead bin lid would not stay closed.) United customer service was very poor and after 16 hrs. at SO without resolution on flights and schedule, we just came back home. If Siss Air could have waited 10 minutes for 12 or more passengers, we would have been fine. I don't know if United communicated with them or not. This was a disaster!"
Cons: "The ground crew seems not to have a good understanding of the available over-head space and asks passengers to checks bags in unnecessarily. For the second time in a row, I was told that there is no overhead space left and that I need to check my bag while I was boarding. I saw that this wasn't the case when I got on board. Needless to say that waiting to pickup my carry-on at my destination added an unnecessary half an hour to my trip."
Cons: "My only real issue was that, upon checking in online, I was informed that my boarding pass would be emailed to me. I don't believe it ever was. I checked all of my various email folders, including spam, and saw nothing."
Pros: "Although I arrived a few minutes late, the check-in agent managed to get my bag on the flight. When I missed my flight, the agent quickly got me on another flight (with a competitor airline), with no additional charge."
Cons: "The short (10 minute) boarding window contributed to me missing my flight (by a few minutes). Very annoying."
Pros: "Gates for connecting were close and even with delay, I made it on time."
Cons: "Flight delay, that made the short connection even shorter"
Pros: "They had blankets waiting on our seats for us, which was really nice!"
Cons: "The seats were horribly uncomfortable and hardly budged when "reclined". It made for a miserable red eye experience."
Pros: "I know it’s out of the hands of the airline but we were delayed due to weather. Luckily they booked us on another flight but it was the next morning."
Cons: "I know there are clauses saying that United does not have to do anything to accommodate you if it’s bad weather but we did not get anything for our inconvenience. Most airlines will seem to help you with hotels or food and whatnot if you had to be rebooked. We ended up booking a hotel through the Hotel Tonight for a great rate although it’s unrefundable. Turns out we get to the airport and our original connecting flight was severely delayed and we would have made it on to that flight. So either way we were stuck with a loss."
Pros: "No one died."
Cons: "The flight 586 was late and despite having two hours to wait in SF the flight got to SF just as the connection was finished boarding. I had to run from a gate in the 60s to 84D and the people at 84D were whining about my getting to them so late. United Airlines needs to get its stuff together!"
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
Cons: "Now Sherry in any documentation I received did it say that my flight was operated by United airlines. I waited at ANA check in until within the 2 hour window and went around and asked someone at United who confirmed that they were partners with ANA."
Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Pros: "When I booked this flight four months ago, nothing indicated that these seats would not recline (since they are in front of an exit). That's not something I knew and that fact made it a bit brutal on an overnight flight, especially when the people in front of us could recline their seats. It should be easy and reasonable to add such info in the booking process."
Cons: "There is just something very bare-bones about flying now: modest food or drink, little effort to entertain except on your own equipment. It's functional--does the job."
Pros: "Nothing at all flights not on time crew very un helpful and not nice"
Cons: "Delay in connecting flight from Seattle to Denver caused us to board our plane to Grand Rapids moments before the doors closed. Had we missed our flight, an unpaid work day would have incurred as we would not have arrived in Grand Rapids until the following afternoon."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I liked the legroom of Economy Plus. The flight itself was good. Didn't buy any food."
Cons: "We arrived late in Denver and had to sit at the gate and wait for the jetway person to arrive and connect the jetway to the plane. I also didn't like the fact that I had to buy Economy Plus because my wife and I were not only not assigned seats together after booking, we were not assigned seats at all. When I booked the flights I was only allowed to choose seats for the first flight - Charlotte to Houston...but not for the other three legs of our Charlotte to Seattle trip. The only two seats together from Houston to Seattle were in the very last row. And, on our return flight we had to purchase Economy Plus in order to sit together."
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "The boarding gate attendants were rude and uncaring when we asked them to help us switch pre-assigned seats to ensure our two year old sat with us. While we might have understood better had they been empathetic, they were rude and uncaring and said when you book online you sign a waiver and they can not do anything about this. Wow. This was our flight back. Originally on the way to our destination we had used Delta and that customer service experience was completely different even though that flight was full too. Never flying United again as long as I can avoid it."
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "The time"
Cons: "The fact that I was stranded in Colorado due to weather and they would not refund my ticket even though I had purchased insurance. They wouldn't even give me a credit. Will have to think twice about doing business through KAYAK and United from now on."
Cons: "Will NEVER fly United again. Going home to advise EVERYONE I know not to fly United. They straight suck. Starving people on long flights with hot food for a third of the plane?!?!?! Then telling me I'm wrong for expecting a meal on an almost 7 hour flight?!?!?! &, even better, the reason my son & I starved all morning, day , & evening because EVERY single flight (all 3) were late, one so much so that we almost missed the connecting flight. Wow, is all I can say. After I still have United a chance after assaulting that poor man. Beyond highly disappointed."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The air hosts were in friendly and didn't say goodbye. The cabin was improperly pressurized and hurt my ears going up and landing. My ear is still popping."
Cons: "My fiancé and I packed a suitcase together and it was 3lbs over the 50lb limit. They refused to let it slide and when we asked how much it would be if we left it they said it would cost us $100 for an oversized bag. We already paid the $25 so it makes no sense for it to cost $100 more. They were completely unreasonable and not helpful. Not to mention the flight was an hour late. Our flight on the way out was completely cancelled all together and no one bothered to tell either of us. Then they rerouted us on completely different flights! We had to basically throw a fit to get on the same flight, which ended up being 8 hours AFTER our original flight was supposed to leave. The entire experience was a disaster and I will never fly united again."
Pros: "Barb M. was at the front desk at the United Lounge. She is an incredibly kind human being. I was very sick and this flight was delayed so it was going to cause me to miss my connecting flight overseas. She tried all that she could to rebook me on a different flight but the problem was the destination's air traffic control, not the airplane, so it wasn't going to fix the problem. I was able to rebook my connecting flight, at a cost, but at least I wasn't going to miss it. Barb went and made me hot tea with fresh ginger, mint leaves, and honey for my throat. Through a difficult situation, she was a ray of sunshine and kindness."
Cons: "Every time I travel United, it is delayed. I don't understand why. In this situation the problem was the airline so I understand that is beyond what United controls."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice. Other than that, nothing."
Cons: "Maybe it's because I haven't flown in a few years but it seems that the airlines are packing in as many seats as they can, without regard to the passengers who are shoved into tiny seats for 5+ hours without even being able to stretch their legs. We were in the last row where you can't even lean your seat back but the guy in front of me was just about in my lap the whole flight. Charging for in flight entertainment and meals also seems like the airlines care less for customer satisfaction than the money they can get from passangers. While boarding, we were stopped in first class because the flight attendant was in the aisle getting drinks for first class...Before all the passengers boarded. Also, why is every flight told they get one carry on plus a personal item when that isn't really the case? If the flight is full, apparently there is not enough room for each passanger to have a carry on so people who have delicate items packed in their carry ons have to surrender them and pray their precious vacation purchases aren't smashed when they get their luggage back. Quantity over quality."
Cons: "No space for even one carryon and I was told that the luggage space is not associated with my seat. People have more than 2 can bring them on board yet I have to check in and my valuable items were inside"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled they never told me , and after I explained to them I bought this ticket two hours ago because my grandmother and uncle were dying and I needed to get there, they lied to me told me I would be on a different flight and still get there at the same time. Well my flight was not the same time it was three hours different and if I made it there like they promised the first time I would have been able to kiss my grandma one last time. She died a hour before I got there. And now I'm fighting with them for a refund."
Pros: "The seats looked new."
Cons: "United had us board and unboard and then board again due to flight delays. United also told us the delay would be only 40 minutes, but I looked at the delay in SFO and it was 2 hours. Eventually United also increased our delay by 30 minute intervals until it was about 2 hours. Once I arrivied in SFO I got a text message notification stating my luggage had been put on an incorrect flight and I would have to return to get my luggage. The attendants at the podium were rude. This was my first terrible flying experience ever."
Cons: "People in group 5 don't have a chance to get their carry in bags in the over head storage."
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "The fact that we had a connecting flight to minot from Denver. Arrived late to Denver because of weather, but my stroller that I had left on the jetway in Seattle was never put on the plane which I didn't know until I got to minot. I was going to wait for it in denver, but I would have missed my flight to minot had I waited 5 more minutes. We arrived to minot only to find out that our 3 suitcases, one stroller and 2 car seats were never in the flight. Awful! And my connecting flight was even delayed an extra 55 min so I don't quite know where my things are."
Pros: "The people I sat next to."
Cons: "I missed my first flight because the plane left 15 min early. I was at the gate before the plane detached and the guy said I should be on the plane 15 min before and that he wasn't going to stop the plane from going. I had a business meeting that I was trying to get to so him doing this completely ruined my day and purpose for flying and spending $300 on a flight. I have NEVER experienced anything like this. Once on my rescheduled flight the attendant made several comments about the fact that I had a pillow with me. If you don't know someone situation then you should make any comments at all. I had just finished a 5 day drive across country and unfortunately the pillow needed to get home with me. Not a single employee was kind welcoming or helpful. I will never fly with this airline again. I will be letting EVERYONE I speak to know about this experience and I plan on writing reviews wherever I can find."
Pros: "We ended up getting a free bag check because the flight was full."
Cons: "One free bag check not included. Both legs of our flight were delayed. Even though I had brought an iPad, I couldn't figure out the entertainment system and couldn't download the entertainment app from the Apple app store (I couldn't get the store to open on the onboard wireless system to download the app)."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."
Pros: "United airlines seems no better or worse than most major airlines today."
Cons: "I am fed up with the herding mentality by most airlines. Since when did purchasing an economy seat mean you are not entitled to at least a modicum of comfort on a flight. The legroom provided now is no where near enough for any normal size human. Additionally it's still annoying to pay $25.00 for a single checked bag. I tried United after many years but will be returning to Southwest Airlines - in the long run it's less expensive. I realize nothing will change based on my opinion, regardless, it is more comfortable and dignified to take a Greyhound bus than to fly a major airline these days."
Pros: "Seats were okay as far as comfort level"
Cons: "This flight was overbooked. I had to be back at work the next day, so I really needed to take it. The gate agents wouldn't tell me what was going on, only that the flight was overbooked and that they were "trying to get me a seat." I stood there while all of the groups boarded, waiting for my ticket. I was the last person given a ticket. By the time I finally got to board, all overhead space was taken, so I had to gate check my bag. And then someone had taken the seat I was given, so I had to ask him to move, and he started crying (child). He cried for 20 minutes, so that was fun. Also, this was a red eye - I really wanted to sleep, but right as I was dozing off, the flight attendants turned on the lights for drink service. Overall, just a really poor experience and very hard to sleep."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "I was seated in the economy section. It was quite uncomfortable for a four hour flight. I'm 5'9" and didn't have enough space to stretch in the 737. I felt bad for the middle seat section because there was no room at all. I had an aisle seat and still didn't have enough room the stretch. There was no food or snacks served but the crew did offer free drinks: oj, tea, water, or soda. if you can upgrade to economy plus it's definitely worth it. Spend the money for it. You will have more leg room for sure."
