Cons: "Plane was way too cold"
Pros: "Excellent seamless great service and plane."

Cons: "Long. Delay at landing waiting for a gate"
Cons: "Delayed 45 mins"
Cons: "A passenger got up to use the restroom while we were taxing and the crew did not stop him!!"
Pros: "Flight boarded on time and was not overbooked so we had extra room to stretch"
Cons: "Flight was bumpy at the start but the pilot went up in altitude and we had a smooth ride"
Pros: "Because if a flight delay I would miss my connector from full to Jax, so I was rebooked EWR to IND, TO BWI TO JAX. I was flying from 1 pm until 10:30 Pm to get from EWR to JAX. Had 3 takeoff and 3 landings. So ridiculous to have to go to Indianapolis to get to Jacksonville!"
Cons: "Flying ALL DAY!!!!"
Pros: "There was too much variance in the flight departure times. It would have been wiser to just give us the later time and leave it alone; I think it changed three or four times within a window of an hour or so."
Pros: "The airline allows two free checked bags! Aside from that, the departure was timely. The staff in-flight was very nice/funny. And arrival was smooth as well. I would strongly consider Southwest every time, even with a failed engine/window!"

Pros: "I suppose we prioritized safety."
Cons: "We were very late because the crew had to ask for everyone on board's ID and names. It seems there may have been a security issue, but it wasn't clear what was happening. Folks missed or nearly missed connections - clearer communication could have helped."
Pros: "Quick flight, good sevice, friendly attendants. Southwest continues to deliver excellent value with their airfare pricing. The early bird check-in was also a worthwhile upgrade."
Cons: "We left 20-25 minutes late with no reason given by the flight crew. I know that sometimes its out of their hands but it would have been nice to know something about our delay. With that said, once we were airborne we made up most of the delay time in the air."
Pros: "2 checked bags free."
Cons: "Too hot"
Cons: "We spend 100k a yr with our southwest visa to earn companion fare privileges. We,my family of five, decided to go to FLL via BWI for Labor Day weekend. When we arrived at our gate we were told the flight was over sold and that I didn't have a seat. The lady at the desk was very nice and said you will be compensated for the mix up. After calling a few different people I was told that I wouldn't be compensated because my flight was "free". I refer to the 100k needed to attain companion fare capabilities Aka "free" airfare. We have never had a problem with southwest before to be fair quite the contrary but sadly the first time we had a problem it was handled in such a way that it cast a shadow over all of the past positives. Hopefully they will make this right. I can't imagine they won't."

Pros: "Relaxed and polite very easy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "wasting my time getting to the airport and then having to do it again tomorrow!"
Cons: "Flight arrived an hour late and then took another 40 minutes to get bags"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The PA system at Washington is the worst I've seen in a major airport. If I didn't know the boarding process, I would have been totally lost. The announcements were unintelligible and useless. You need to GET IT FIXED!!"
Pros: "Always on time and safe"
Cons: "seats are small and no food options"
Pros: "The flight is scheduled to last only 1.5 hours, yet somehow we managed to arrive in Providence at least 20 minutes early! Everything was perfectly pleasant."

Layover arrival was late. They didn't wait for us. Then no slots avaliable for 2 days. Lost 2 days of vaca.

Very comfortable!

Customer service when boarding could have been much better in Ft. Lauderdale.

Good flight, on time, great service, really nothing to complain about. I enjoyed traveling with JetBlue

Pros: "Wayne at the DCA Airport was gracious and amazing."
Cons: "The planes still aren’t clean. Pretty sure something was growing on the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Extremely disappointed about flight 1379 scheduled to depart at 0658, 18 Jun 21. Flight departure was moved to 10:30 AM and later to 12:30 PM without giving any reason for the delay to the hundreds of passengers that arrived at the airport between 4:30 AM to 5:30 AM to meet the airlines requirements. Poor performance by Jet blue. Lost of time and money for me. Thumps down. Blue is my favorite color, live up to it."

Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"

Pros: "Boardin process was Ok"

They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft.

He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service.

Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"

Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac.

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "My flight was changed to later time; however I didn't receive any notification. Flight was later and didn't get seat I requested on original flight."

Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag. Brought only a carry on to avoid baggage claim, but was forced to check it anyway. There is NO organization to the boarding process, so in the free-for-all at boarding, people in any boarding group are let through with WAY MORE than 1 carry on and 1 personal item, leaving no room for my bag and I was in group 2 (not sure how many groups there are). Horrible disorganization at boarding. Board from back to front for goodness sake...its common sense."

Pros: "All aspects of flight were perfect. Couldn't ask for anything more."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."

Tight space for seating. Windows not located where you can see outside easily

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Everything could be better. From the boarding process to the on board service."

Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."

Pros: "It was just a quick flight, but everything/everyone was efficient and made the process/flight no problem. Great experience."
Cons: "Nice exp and service"
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Pros: "The flight was shorter due to a tailwind."
Cons: "Middle seat, over crowded and the guy next to me had his emotional support rabbit."
Pros: "boarding was fast, flight was on time, nice crew"
Cons: "pretty basic creature comforts, seats so so"
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. Hostess was super loud repeated destination at least 100 times."
Cons: "Pilot was calm and understanding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by five hours due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Little information was provided by United. Frustrating experience."
Cons: "No Wifi even though it was published. No stroop waffles was disappointment"
Pros: "Quick flight, faster than schedule. Flight attendant was good."
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room or arm space in the seats on US express jets. If the flight were longer than an hour it would make for an absolutely miserable experience."
Pros: "Snack menu, the plane was moderately clean compared to the last. Good communication about late flight."
Cons: "Staff was mostly rude, tired. The plane was 30 minutes late due to weather. Internet would not work, the captain kept trying to reboot it, no entertainment. An older plane in moderate disrepair. Economy seats were much more uncomfortable than American Airlines."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Pros: "Got a window seat and had an amazing crew. Everything went smoothly! Dinner and breakfast served!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so we missed our flight. The least they could have done was given us a pass to the lounge to relax considering we came in on a red eye or a lunch voucher. The staff was a bit rude."
Pros: "All of it was good."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "2 short a trip to serve food"
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."
Pros: "Pilot candor"
Cons: "In flight service"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Greenville at 6:41 pm, we never arrived until after 11 am."
Cons: "- The flight out of IAD was overbooked and left late. - My hand luggage was taken from me with promise of delivery at final destination - Staff in EWR was unhelpful and just short of rude - My luggage did not make the connection at EWR - There was no United staff in PoS to take my report of lost luggage -"
Pros: "On time flight. And the upgrade was wonderful"
Cons: "Kind of hot on the plane"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "That you charge to watch the entertainment."
Pros: "The flight was smooth. The crew was great."
Cons: "The snack."
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "We waited for 12 people that were running late from a connecting flight. It ended up being a 45 min delay and I was so impressed that they waited. I had a precious experience from a different airline that didn't wait for us, 6 of us with first class tickets, and we were only 5 min late! So, great that United waited for these passengers. And the time lost, was made up in the air."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and welcoming!"
Pros: "The personal are very amability"
Cons: "Turbulence was insane"
Cons: "Not enough space"
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The Argentinian lady that help us at the counter. She safe us from missing the flight."
Cons: "The long waiting with customs and that the connection were too far away to drop the baggage"
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "During sleeping somebody took the pillow and the blanket from the adjacent seat. Unfortunately with my amenity kit and the Bose headphone case. The kit was found later by the personnel, the case not. Not reccomemded to sleep during flight at this airline."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and United offered no reasonable options for returning home that evening."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold. Even with numerous empty seats I was assigned a seat in the last row next to the laboratory and not permitted to change. Flight attendant had a poor attitude and was generally not helpful."
