Cons: "Three hours trapped on the plane before it takes off is simply too many, even if there is weather."

Pros: "Crew was great and airplane was nice and spacious"
Cons: "Better boarding. Took forever. Get rid of zones and just board back to front!"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "More Information about runway delays that caused me to have to run to my next gate in order to make a connecting flight. Connecting flight also had a 30 minute delay on the runway. Seats left my body feeling sore after flight."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "I like to fly again with SingaporeAir. Thank you for you amazing service. Excelent job."

Pros: "There is no such thing as a comfortable plane seat anymore and anywhere"
Cons: "Seat comfort. For those of us with back/hip issues"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive, breakfast was wonderful, and the seats were very comfortable!"
Cons: "I have no complaints!"

Cons: "No problem at all"

Pros: "I thought vueling or wow when I first got on the plane.. 5.5 hr flight and I wouldnt be able to walk... but the seats were wider, perhaps the molding of the seats are american sized..) the flight was comfortable and I am walking to Duke's chowder ! I didn't bother with the wifi, just used amazon downloaded videos. Was nice to have electric outlets at the seats. the crew from bwi to sea were really good. pleasant folk that worked the aisle quickly and made many trips with drinks and food."
Cons: "we bought salads and fruit plates. $54.00 for small and mediocre food. I was thinking that it would be better, give the price. On the way home we will pass (unless over ridden)"

Pros: "Nice staff, nice seats, good selection of movies."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably cold throughout the whole flight. Many passengers asked to increase the temperature however, even though the flight attendants were receptive to our requests, the temperature did not change. Usually temp doesn't bother me but this trip was absolutely frigid."

Pros: "Crew makes all the difference. Thank you for being attentive and caring for our Baltimore to San Diego flight. (Two kids in tow - everyone is happy.)***** Super!"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and friendly yet they give you your space. I know there is no personal space in an aircraft however it felt like it. Great job."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "I was happy it was a nonstop flight on a somewhat new and very clean plane. Plenty of leg room, though the seat almost felt narrow and the person next to me was on me the entire trip. Seat comfort was good, I prefer firmer padding on a longer trip. Attendants were attentive and quick about helping passengers but felt like they didn’t want to be there. Boarding was also fast, though slightly confusing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that after I booked my ticket Alaska moved the time to much earlier in the day and I had to take off work. There’s no built in screen; tablets are available to rent, but for the price tickets are I shouldn’t have to rent something or use up my battery. Plus having to either hold my phone/tablet the whole flight or use what little space I have on my tray to prop it up isn’t enjoyable. Also the snacks were lacking, one bag of cheese crackers was my only option for a flight over 5 hours."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very slow checkin. No urgency. Boarding pass machines were broken so everyone had to wait in line and struggled to make flight."

Cons: "When Alaska Airline counter opened up at BWI Airport at 2:30pm this afternoon, they absolutely ignored those customers in line. The customer service lacked service. This is Not what AA is noted for for. Supervisors need to make sure their staff is ready to greet customers standing in line and process them promptly."

Pros: "Excellent service and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "The fact that if you didn’t pay for a seat you had to wait until everyone else boards then you can get a seat. Also if they could have told you to download Gogo app when we first get on the plane."

Pros: "Direct flight, seat next to me was empty so had a little room to spead out."
Cons: "Bad weather delayed the flight by 2 hours, bumpy the last half. flight attendent talked too much gave me a headache!"

Pros: "Complimentary beer and wine!"

Pros: "Getting my bags quick was definitely the highlight f the trip"

Pros: "All done right. They know how to do airline!"

Pros: "We loved that the boarding was so easy because we had assigned seats. Everything went smoothly and we were able to leave earlier than planned because we were ready. That was nice. The pilot was great."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude, arrogant, and didn’t do their job well. They stayed in the back texting the entire flight instead of attending to people and when someone asked for water they acted like it was a man joe nuisance. It was very off-putting."

Pros: "No hidden charges, flight entertainment, sensible boarding process, friendly crew"
Cons: "Not much to say. I'm tall and usually fly economy/coach so leg room is limited."

Pros: "Wi-Fi, power, smiles from the team, and overall it was great"
Cons: "Not having a first class seat."

Pros: "Liked free WiFi!"
Cons: "Switching from Alaskan Air to Hawaiian Air in San Diego is near impossible. I got off at 9:25am and had to run out of the airport and down to another terminal, go through security again and run to gate 51 from gate 10. It is near impossible for someone who can’t sprint. I was the last one to board. Lost my window seat and luggage didn’t make it. In Honolulu I found out luggage hasn’t made it for at least three other couples flying out of BWI with these connections. This combo should not be offered when people select flights."

Pros: "Excellent crew and gate staff, super friendly, accommodating, and patient."
Cons: "Lack of seatback IFE is a serious competitive disadvantage over Delta and others, particularly for coast-to-coast routes. Economy seat cushions are thin and wear you out on a transcontinental flight. And storage is extremely limited and inflexible given the hard plastic back of the seats and the barely-there netted space for personal items."

Pros: "Everything about the flight, from boarding to deplaning."
Cons: "The menu could use an upgrade but that’s the only thing bad I could say..."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very comfortable and pleasant flight."

Cons: "Crew had a horrible attitude"

Cons: "If you want to buy a hot meal don't sit past row 15 as they run out. Who runs out of food for purchase? Apparently this isn't a new issue."

Pros: "The staff is pleasant"

Cons: "The internet was not stable even after you pay"

Pros: "Was upgraded to premium economy in order to accommodate a family that wanted to be seated together. Never been upgraded in my life. The seat was very comfortable and legroom excellent. I was exhausted from a long weekend and not feeling well but managed to sleep almost the entire four hours without being bothered. The flight attendants left me a snack in my seat pocket which was very much appreciated. Almost wish I hadn't slept so much of the flight so I could've witnessed other amenities and service of flight attendants."

Pros: "I really appreciated that Alaska Airlines called me in advance to let me know that my original flight would be substantially delayed. They reseated me on a direct flight to Portland. Otherwise, I would have missed the wedding I was attending. I appreciate how proactive Alaska is."

Pros: "Had great interactions with crew and customer service rep, who added my TSA Prechek number over the phone because I couldn't do it when booking through Kayak. Great price for a nonstop cross country flight. Arrived on time with no drama, except for the seat neighbor who couldn't keep her feet out of my area."
Cons: "Would've welcomed a snack, but hey...can't be choosy."

Pros: "Service was good, lots of leg room and they even had in flight entertainment for free!, unlike all other domestic airlines where they always try to nickle and dime you. Great airline."

Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and very accomodating. I also liked that I could change my seat even after I checked in so that I could have the most comfortable travel possible as someone traveling alone."
Cons: "Although it worked out ok. I thought that the boarding process was a little chaotic. I expected that we would line up according to our seat rows. But the boarding process still went ok."

Cons: "There were no blankets and it was a bit cold on the flight"

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early. The crew was friendly and offered drinks on an hourly basis. The egg scramble breakfast was pretty tasty; surprisingly it was made with real ingredients not an ounce of foam egg insight."
Cons: "Nothing worth complaining about."

Pros: "I recently moved from Baltimore to LA in February. I love Alaska Air! The crew is always friendly and as a 6'3 guy I appreciate the legroom in the aisles."

Pros: "The service, the aircraft, and reasonable upgrades to first class"

Cons: "Look, I understand things happen, but by arriving near midnight in Seattle (five hours late), I missed a dinner my father drove several hours to make happen, and I also had to pay $55 for a cab to a hotel (he would have driven me). I asked three different Alaska staff people, and they all told me to talk to somebody else about compensation. Poor service."

Pros: "The flight was generally like any other flight"
Cons: "I had paid for a nonstop flight at a certain time to get home for an important meeting, but because I booked through a third party they said I was going to be bumped to another flight that would get me home over 12 hours later WITH a layover. That's frankly not what I paid for. That makes me not want to ever book with a third party again. I don't appreciate not getting what I pay for. Eventually someone took a voucher and I was able to get on the flight, but I'm still upset because, as the customer, I did nothing wrong. Just book the proper amount of seat for the proper amount of people. So frustrating."

Pros: "Great crew and leg room."
Cons: "My TSA Pre wasn't put on my boarding pass, so I had to go back to check in to get it reprinted​, which was very annoying and wasted about 30 minutes."

Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Long flight, no food. Crying kid that kept kicking the back of my seat (not airlines fault). They have a nice movie but you can watch on your phone.... that I learned about with 45 minutes left into a 6-hour flight. They really should have done a better job of letting passengers know about their options while in flight. A shot of Jack would have been VERY appreciated just for putting up with the kid/family. I joke.... but yeah, that would have been nice."

Cons: "I did not have food or entertainment. Boarding and exit just takes a long time."

Pros: "It was easy too check in and to make changes. The crew was kind and offered solutions to anything that may have come up."
Cons: "The first plane I boarded seemed to have snow salt on the bottom so it appeared to be dirty but everything else seemed to be great."

Pros: "Got I early"

Cons: "The crew was overly aggressive with mask policy enforcement. They patrolled the aisles and routine pointed at passengers directing them in a hostile manner to keep their masks on their faces, even when they were trying to eat or drink. They also threatened customers by stating it was a federal law several times. It was very uncomfortable to say the least. I will not fly delta again by choice."

Pros: "The space we currently have."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and engaging"
Cons: "I wiped down my seat area to clean it. It would be nice to know what Delta is doing as well."

Cons: "They lost my bags. Unacceptable"

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Food somewhat expensive..... boarding off the plane - ones with no baggage should get off first then more control about everybody getting in the aisles trying to get their luggage and holding everybody up"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "the seats are horribly squished and uncomfortable. It’s the only thing that makes the flight not excellent"

Pros: "Thanks for the monitors."
Cons: "The crew seems tired."

Pros: "No comments"
Cons: "Cleaners had not done a great job. There were paper napkins left over in the seat pocket from earlier flight."

Pros: "It wasn’t delayed 3 hours like the first flight"
Cons: "Departing on time"

Pros: "Everything about delta"

Pros: "Airbus was nice"
Cons: "Delayed by over 1 1/2 hours"

Pros: "Efficient, cheerful crew"
Cons: "Stop making seats smaller! The added revenue from 10 squeezed seats is not worth the discomfort it causes."

Pros: "I got to board early because I volunteered to check my carry-on. Very friendly flight attendants. Love flying delta. They are always consistent and the movies they offer with the gogo in-flight app are always updated and recently released popular movies."

Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed by a few minutes we still arrived on time."

Pros: "The whole crew was great and very accommodating"

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Great crew and plane arrived on time."
Cons: "No entertainment and no place to charge devices."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."
Cons: "But the seats are so tight that we were definitely elbow to elbow and once seated I was unable to access even the purse that was at my feet. There was no entertainment and the tray table was tiny, not even an indentation for a cup!"

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Smooth flight, on-tome departure"
Cons: "Service in business class left a little more to be desired. I had to ask for food and drinks, because I feel off to sleep in the first round. Came to Gate early, but had to wait for agent to put the jet bridge. Only one person was available."

Cons: "Hassel about getting a visa to Cambodia. Refused to give me a boarding pass for 2nd and 3 rf leg of trip. Korean Air had no problems giving me yhe passes. Otter people had Delta boarding passes shivh they traded for Korran Aiir passes but the got better seats. Food was very good"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No complain"

Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Food was pretty good, but not up to their usual high standards"

Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."

Cons: "Delta staff is not too friendly"

Pros: "Seating"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."

Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."
Cons: "The foldable snack tray was broken on the flight to ATL."

Pros: "This trip into Merida was amazing from start to finish. Something was lost in translation with my handicap assistance in Atlanta, but the trip was lovely nonetheless."

Pros: "no one woke me up"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."

Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."

Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "People"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff"

Pros: "I had to take a United flight last week for a short flight and once again I was reminded why I ALWAYS fly Delta if at all possible. United crew hid in the galley the whole trip wit lititle to no interaction with passengers. My flight today on Delta was great; food really excellent (Chicken Tika) and the crew was great as usual. Delta remains the best."

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Quick flight; helpful and friendly staff"

Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."

Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"

Pros: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."

Pros: "Great plane"

Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."

Pros: "Upgrading to First Class made it worthwhile."
Cons: "As a minority provider of service at BWI, the gate was the furthest from the entry. Gate security is almost always a source of delay here."

Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."

Pros: "...the fact that they got us on the plane and back to GRR even though the connecting flight from BWI was delayed and there was little time to make that last flight out of DTW..."

Pros: "I haven't traveled by air for a number of years, it had gotten to be so crazy at checkin. Well imagine my surprise when I was checked in within five minutes of arriving at the airport. KAYAK took care of everything. All the flights were on time, I received email updates along the way and I am so happy I'm planning my next trip already."
Cons: "Even the babies in the waiting area were quiet on the flight, which leaves nothing for me to complain about at all."

Pros: "Very timely flight"
Cons: "United is not enforcing COVID rules"

Cons: "Seat was tight in the shoulders 3 wide for a grown man."

Pros: "out stewardess only had 7 people on the flight so she spend time taking care of us. I'm not sure how things will go as this was the maiden flight.. but getting into watertown from BWI in 5.25 hours was really nice!"
Cons: "overall price. the flights to ORD from BWI was a little high. Having this airline advertise outside so that I could have flown cheaper to ORD and known about this connecting flight."

Cons: "outlets for each seat, more space, timely manner,"

Pros: "Seats are pretty comfortable - appreciate adjustable head rest, both side flaps and vertical movement. Staff very friendly, pilot communicated well."
Cons: "Staff to offer whole can of beverage."

Pros: "Boarding was great"
Cons: "Inflight Services was horrific and my stuff was damaged in my luggage."

Cons: "United has always been good to me."

Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "It was a decent flight"

Pros: "What flight are you talking about!? Airlines had NO SUCH FLIGHT! This household became very upset over some surprise obligation!"
Cons: "The turmoil of your false alarm!"

Pros: "The boarding process went quickly an smoothly and it was a pleasant shirt flight."
Cons: "The taxiing at Chicago took a long time"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "United intertainment app getting stuck on movies"

Pros: "Landed early, decent price"
Cons: "Not allowed to bring on carry on in basic economy which was not obvious at booking, seats very tight and little legroom"

Pros: "Arrived early. Airline offered free bag checking when plane looked full"
Cons: "Size restriction on personal item was smaller than other airlines, causing me to use a smaller backpack than I would have prefered."

Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Rude crew"

Cons: "Heading from BWI to Newark to Boston on 9/29 on United. There were delays at Newark airport which lasted about an hour, and meant that we would be super tight getting in for our connecting flight. We had been told ahead of the departure of the delayed flight that there would be someone on the ground at Newark monitoring the delayed connecting flights, in case a flight needed to be held. Well, we actually landed about 15 minutes before our connecting flight was due to take off. However, we quickly found out that not only were the gates closed early, but the flight tracker was showing the flight had actually left early. There was clearly no communication between on the ground crews, and everyone working at the airport once we landed seemed confused about the situation. By the time we got within eyeshot of our gate, the gate agents were telling us that the Boston flight was already closed. This meant that no one was even monitoring the situation for us, and that they made no effort to hold the plane for the five of us who were supposed to be on that flight. Additionally, that was the last flight to Boston from Newark, so they literally didn't give one iota of care for our situation. I had a 10am wedding to attend that next day, and even after telling the agent this information she still asked me whether I wanted to get on a 10:38am flight to Boston, which made exactly zero sense. After all of this, she ended up getting me on a flight into manchester (that flight had been delayed for 3 hours by this time, and was delayed again after I was booked on it) which landed at 1:24am, a full two hours and some change after I would have landed in Boston, and a full hour away from Boston. Luckily, my boyfriend had his car and was able to pick me up. I finally got to Boston around 2:45am. My suggestion to the airport crews is to actually communicate when you have issues like this. It wasn't our fault, but we were greatly inconvenienced and they did not make an effort to prevent the situation at all. Adding to this, our pilot for that first flight told us that the reason for the first delay was that Newark was congested with too many flights into and out of the airport. THAT is entirely their fault for not being able to properly gauge their own capacity and should not have ended up inconveniencing passengers! I end all this with an additional inconvenience- when I arrived for my flight on Sunday at 4:40am for a 5:55am flight back to DC, I was told that my return flight had been CANCELED. Somehow, in rebooking me on the flight to Manchester. So I had to spend 30 minutes on the phone with United to get that fixed at 5 in the morning and nearly missed my return flight due to crew incompetence as well."

Cons: "Yiu have ti pay for mivie or tv"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Seat too narrow and not enough leg room"

Pros: "Both flight were delayed and I had to reschedule my flights and miss my arrangements."
Cons: "It looks like that there is no respect for Time ."

Pros: "I usually don't fly with unites but based on there standard services I can see why. They are on the equivalent of spirit but more expensive."

Pros: "Kindness of employees. Bathroom was mostly tidy. Pilot was good."
Cons: "Surprise check bag fee even though it was small carry on and I had no other carry on. Happened both ways for total of $50. Felt like I was taken advantage of. You had to pay for any entertainment. Only food was a tiny bag of pretzels for a 6hr flight. Also maintenance delay."

Pros: "The staff was courteous and polite and went the extra mile to ensure my flight was enjoyable."

Pros: "I thank you for your excellent service!"
Cons: "Everything was very nice!"

Cons: "When sitting straight up in the seat, my knees hit the seat in front of me. United seems to be making the space between each seat terribly close."

Cons: "Departure was delayed somewhere between 30-45 minutes."

Cons: "Employee deleted my reservation"

Pros: "The connecting plane once we got to Newark NJ was great, staff, flight, clean , and spacious. The pilot was great at communicating too."
Cons: "The smaller plane when we first boarded was a bad experience from walking down a lot of stairs with my luggage to the terrible male Asian flight attendant that wasn't customer friendly. He actually said to a male customer when a question was asked" what do you want me to do". Then a terribly long walk up and down stairs with luggage to board another plane at Newark at 6:30am."

Pros: "This leg of my journey was fine. Sat in the middle seat. Was able to sleep most of the way."

Cons: "Major maintenance delays made the 0600 flight take off late and missed our connection so had to go to a later flight, then that flight also got maintenance delays so our 8 hour trip took closer to 15 hours..."

Pros: "Small planes make it easier to embark and disembark. It was on schedule on both legs, but changing terminals (on a bus) for the connecting flight was a drag."
Cons: "These are very small planes with little seating room. Thankfully, the flight was very short. C"

Pros: "Great customer service.. Comfortable flight and smooth landing!"
Cons: "Paying for one check in bag..."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The usual. - crowded, smelly"

Pros: "They helped me when my flight was delayed."
Cons: "The fact that they kept us on the plane for over an hour trying to fix a problem only to say that they didn't know when it would be fixed. They were lousy at explaining the problem and kept saying the same thing over an over. They basically told us there was a missing screw and they couldn't find it or reach it."

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "The aircraft was neat, clean and up to date. Boarding was well organized. Take off and landing was great."
Cons: "The service crew could have been more friendly."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Everything , 5 hours sitting on plane on what was a two hour flight . Then the staff thinking giving me cookies was making it ok. They told me 45 min then gave me headphones witch I already had .... and said nothing for 3 hours about when we are ariveing or leaving or anything . Prob won't fly united or use kayak again ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight never happened. My flight was delayed 3 times before being cancelled and united could not book me on another flight until the following day. They would not put me in a hotel, pay for another flight or even get me a taxi to a hotel I could stay at over night. I had to book a last minute flight through another airline at my own expense"

Cons: "I never made it on the flight due to weather conditions they couldn't even hold the flight, and then when I have to get my own accommodations had to pay for my own hotel that is not cool"

Pros: "I was very cold because I take blood thinners. I was sitting directly behind first class in coach . The first class crew was passing out blanket to anyone who wants one. Several I tried to get a crew member attention which she ignore . I was told I couldn't have a blanket because they are only given to first class customers only but on my flight to Batltimore I was given a blanket in coach"

Pros: "Staff was uniformly helpful and polite. I travel w a scooter and they were helpful coordinating its transport."
Cons: "This flight was 2+ hours delayed. We were repeatedly told that it was due to weather in Chicago. I don't understand that. The weather was fine in Chicago and flights from BWI to Chicago Midway on other airlines were on time. I felt that this was a fabricated eccude."

Cons: "Under the coordintation of United airlines the commute flight from BWI airport to Newark was delayed causing me to miss the next flight to San Juan."

Pros: "They worked hard to try and get people to their connecting flights since there was a delay"
Cons: "They were overbooked They delayed my flight by about 20-30 minutes"

Pros: "The accuracy"
Cons: "The chairs"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Delayed departure but closed the gap with just a few minutes late arrival."
Cons: "No cookies. You guys should have cookies"

Pros: "Our flight attendant Lei was absolutely fantastic on this flight. After having to run nearly a mile through the Denver airport to catch the connection to Helena after a delay in DSM, I was very warmly greeted by Lei. She regularly checked to see how I was doing through the flight and made sure I was well hydrated. She was a highlight of the entire trip!"

Pros: "the fact we could get tv & movies on our own devices and watch our own choices"
Cons: "Very hard to get it working, not enough choices. I don't watch "stupid comedy" or slasher stuff or news. I look for uplifting, "family" fare. Couldn't get Creed to play, tried on 3 flights"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The strudel was amazing"
Cons: "There was only one strudel"

Pros: "Rate and nice leg space seats"
Cons: "No entertainment without charge,not good,at least few Chanel's should be free"

Pros: "staff on board was curteous."
Cons: "The flight (UA4807) kept delaying from 3:22 to 5:15. I eventually made it to Chicago and then I spent an hour waiting for my oversized luggage because the ground staff sent me to the wrong carosel. Why did I get charged $25 and another $100 for my golf clubs?"

Cons: "We were diverted to Indianapolis due to weather. I understand as I am also a pilot."
