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?

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "My husband & I were in Row 5 & in last boarding group. When we got to our seats, all of the overhead bins were filled all the way back to Row 8. So, we put our suitcases up there. When we landed, we had to wait for everyone to get off the plane to be able to go back to those bins. And someone had already exited the plane with my husband’s suitcase. Their suitcase was left. We spent an hour with Suitcase Services, but could not find out who took my husband’s suitcase. (No ID inside theirs) I recommend that you board lower numbered rows first so that people in the back rows don’t take the front bins!"

Cons: "Turbulence was high so good/drink service was less than normal. No fault of delta or their crew but the JFK airport was awful, especially through customs. No help from the employees and easy to get lost."
Pros: "The crew were awesome and friendly, both in the air and on the ground."
Cons: "Delta communicated no reasoning for delaying our flight three hours. They also did not update estimated departure times even when it was clear we would be delayed multiple times because the plane was not at the gate, the crew were not in place, and the pilot safety checks had not occurred."
Pros: "Friendly flight staff, on time service."
Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."
Pros: "The plane was nice"
Cons: "I’m still sitting in Minneapolis so I would have liked to be at my destination. And I had to pay for the overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."

Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "Nice plane and comfy seats"
Cons: "The stewards were not at all helpful or as friendly as most of the delta staff! I was so disappointed with their service. We had TWO delays making us arrive in SAT AT almost 2 am. Hence there were a lot of empty seats. We asked if we or even one of us could move into the …at least three empty rows…and they would not let us as they were they comfort plus section and it cost more…NO ONE WAS USING THESE SEATS!! So they let the passengers be crammed together in the rest of the plane and left numerous empty seats that could have been used! It’s was just rude. They also served drinks and never checked back to pick up the garbage. Didn’t tell us to raise our seats or put up our table trays before landing. So, as I exited the plane I handed them my garbage! I wasn’t going to be rude and leave it in the seat pocket or my seat …where I found crumbs of food on when I boarded the plane. Was just very dissatisfied with this crew!! I have been flying a lot lately using delta. I’ve had some delays but they’ve always been accommodating, this crew was not! What a shame!"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"
Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."
Cons: "Tv"
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."
Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"
Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "Staff friendly,efficient and courteous. On time. Different snacks. Prompt service. Power source each seat worked."
Cons: "Gate area for flight change filthy. LAX gates 31-38. Garbage overflow with no seating. No entertainment option on flight."
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Pros: "Gate and plane crew helpful, smiling, courteous. On time and baggage provided quickly."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, no power, service predictable and boring snacks."
Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"
Cons: "Airplanes are filthy; asked for Coke without ice & the flight attendant filled my cup halfway. Unbelievably cheap! I was afraid to ask for more, for fear that I'd get an up charge!"
Pros: "Repair took just under an hour which I think is very good considering the paperwork that is involved. We were informed and everyone on the plane seemed to understand so the handling of the event must have been exceptional..."
Cons: "we took off 45 minutes late, business trip, but a slack day prepping for tomorrow, so still no big deal. Besides we picked up an hour by the time zone change. Im good!"
Cons: "It was belated by 2.5 hrs :("
Cons: "I feel Delta didn't try very hard to get me a flight and I stood in line for four hours"
Pros: "My seat was very near the front ...two rows behind comfort class seating (which was mostly empty). WiFi services and entertainment were offered...to those that brought along their own receiving devices."
Cons: "My seat happened to be one row in front of the Exit Aisle Seating rows....I wasn't aware that this meant having to sit straight up the entire time without the chance of reclining my chair back into the Exit Aisle's space.The 2 hour and 13 minute flight time sitting straight up really worked up my sciatic nerve into a flaring frenzy. I Forgot to bring my iPad Pro with me on this trip...and had no adequate access to any entertainment content."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful at gate. Aircrew staff handled one hour rain delay on taxiway with frequent updates and good attitude. New plane, and convenient electronic support."
Cons: "Peanut allergy on flight. No peanuts. No other options."
Cons: "It was amazing"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Be on time"

Cons: "Overbooking and worrying I would miss my trip"
Pros: "Great service!!!"
Cons: "I couldn’t finish the free in air entertainment. My flight was to short. :)"
Cons: "Mechanical delays caused me to miss my uncle's funeral."
Pros: "Not a challenging process from beginning to end."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Aircraft seating was terrible! Seats were way too close together. Seats were uncomfortable. Couldn’t even get an entire soda from the attendant. Made me remember why I dislike flying."
Cons: "the usual garbage AA flights on CRJ's with poor on-time performance and frequent maintenance issues..."
Pros: "Flt attendent was really nice, friendly, courteous"
Cons: "Flt not on time. A/C did not work properly."
Pros: "It’s a jet"
Cons: "Boarding terrible at DCA, seats cramped"
Cons: "Seating is a bit cramped."
Pros: "Good service. Early arrival. Fast boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment. Hard seats."
Pros: "Smooth flight with great service."
Pros: "Efficient"
Pros: "boarding process was efficient and the seats on this aircraft seemed a bit more comfortable"
Cons: "lack of in-seat video and no free wi-fi and no power connections"
Cons: "Lost my luggage and flight delayed"
Pros: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Pros: "It was a good flight back to DC."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."
Pros: "Food, OK legroom, complimentary wine & beer on a US carrier"
Cons: "Barely functioning ancient touchscreen system"
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours then canceled."
Cons: "Allowed me to take earlier flight"
Cons: "Haven't taken it yet!"
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Cons: "No entertainment, ran out of meals by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "A little crowded"
Cons: "Checkin"
Pros: "The flight was on timely"
Cons: "The staff was very informative"
Pros: "Great customer service and attention"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
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: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Cons: "Layover was over an hour."
Pros: "Everyone was amazing. Helpful. Kind professional"
Pros: "The lady sitting next to me was nice to talk to - that's about it"
Cons: "The whole experience was terrible. The airport gate terminal was chaotic. While boarding, I am told I have to check my bag because apparently the flight was overbooked and there was no room for my carryon. We finally get on the plane and are told by the pilot that we have to stop for fuel - MID FLIGHT!!! I have never had a pilot stop to fuel up in the middle of a flight. And he told us it would take 10 minutes. It took an hour and a half!!!!!!!It completely derailed my connection flight. I missed it and was rescheduled, but wasn't told anything. I get to my new connection flight - that wasn't leaving for another 2 hours mind you - and ask the lady about my bag, because I was nervous it wouldn't get there with the flight change. Her response - "Well, they knew where you were going, right?""
Cons: "The delay. My flight was suppossed to depart at 7:25pm and left at 9:30"
Pros: "Llego a tiempo"
Cons: "N/h"
Pros: "Crew was terrific"
Cons: "Cabin was a little cool"
Pros: "Got to San Antonio finally"
Cons: "Not having maintenance issues on the same flight from the prior flight to our airport then having more maintenance issues prior to leaving."
Pros: "Good schedule"
Cons: "the commuter terminal in Dulles is miserable and chaotic, but not really United's fault"
Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"
Cons: "Food options had run out by the time the crew reached my seat."
Cons: "Ful flight and 2 small toilets."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Wifi did not work so could not use personal devices. Light did not work so couldn't read a book. Looking at the back of the seat in front of me for 5 hours was pretty tedious."
Pros: "The controlled and orderly way when boarding."
Cons: "The staff from the desk was unfriendly. On boarding no one showed you where your seat is located. The food was dreadful. The same aweful pasta meal on the outbound journey was served again. During the flight I was feeling very unwell I asked the flight attendant our axeick bag which she brought, but I was told to go to the toilet. She did not return to enquire after my well being. I was in the toilet for 5 minutes. Very uncaring. The tea was cold when served"
Pros: "Great inflight service! On the ground faster than expected."
Cons: "I asked to complementary check my small carry on, but the attendants at the desk would not let me. The stewardesses were booked too closely to their last flight and we were delayed - huge oversight. Boarding was chaotic as the gate immediately across from us was simultaneously boarding and the United staff made the whole process long and miserable by failing to call the next boarding group in a timely fashion. This is not the first time I’ve felt miserable while trying to board a United flight :/."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "It appears united is unable to fly their planes on times, in particular on the East Coast. We were delayed by 90min on each legs"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight crew cavalier attitude by not coming on to apologize"
Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion. So, if you are a bicyclist traveling with your bicycle, I'd avoid the United-Lufthansa duo."
Pros: "The stewards were nice. The entertainment package was good. Food was ok (coach)"
Cons: "6 1/2 hour delay due to navigation system crash. Two gate changes and a terminal change. New seats assigned, but then when 3rd plane was brought in, it had the exact configuration of the first and we were told we should use the original boarding passes. These turned out to be wrong because they reseated after the first plane went down and it’s replacement wasn’t the same configuration. We never saw that plane, or the gate it was assigned to. When we went to rebound, my wife I am were separated. We were moved to the way back (screaming baby sandwich - one in front and one behind us). Then we spent an hour in the worst turbulence I’ve seen in 20 years - I nearly vomited. the last 6 hours of this 15 hour ordeal were fine."
Cons: "Lost flight due to late arrival"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good entertainment and good service. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Missed our flight from Brussels to Zurich. United said we were booked on next flight six hours later. Gave us vouchers and that was it. Went to check in and the carrier said sorry you can’t board United did not book you. The voucher just has prior info and this flight time. So we missed getting on that flight 3 total hours on the phone with United and they did nothing but put us on hold. Thank you to Brussels air who finally after many years and frustration helped us so we could leave. More than 10 hours later than we should have. Horrible experience and we lost a day of vacation and pre paid plans for the evening I will never use kayak again for international flights. As that was part of the problem per United (probably BS but won’t ever risk it again) and will never use United airlines again as their customer service and lack of caring showed that companies true colors. I hope the rest of this dream vacation is better than this nightmare was."
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew and decent food/wine selection, but...."
Cons: "This format of business class seating leaves a lot to be desired. There is literally no place to store anything except maybe your cellphone on the shelf under the TV screen. No room for a backpack on the floor - has to be in the overhead. Not convenient on an 8-hour overnight. Seats are tight - could not lay on my back - had to sleep on my side. No separation between seats - it was a 2, 4, 2 layout and the guy next to me coughed all night. At least I wasn't in one of the middle seats. Expensive flight for that type of setup IMHO. And given it was a 777, the plane was big enough."
Cons: "Lufthansa as an agent is a mistake! I had to deal with them prior to flying to the US. I have never ever had to deal with such bad service in my entire life. United was great though and I highly recommend them."
Pros: "Despite sitting in the middle seat and being well over 6 feet, there was room."
Cons: "Too cold. Was freezing all the way over."
Pros: "Nothing really everyhing was mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed baggage, smelly flight, food"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Clean aircraft good entertainment, cockpit crew polite"
Cons: "The check in staff were unbelievably rude nearly looked and were abrupt and dismissive to a simple question. The cabin crew looked scruffy, and clearly had a lack of pride in their job and presentation. This is the first time I have ever flown United and I must say I would avoid flying with them again if possible, which is a shame and the aircraft and the entertainment on board were good"
Pros: "The check in was good. The craft was clean."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Landing was not smooth"
Pros: "Good service, overall."
Cons: "You have to download United Airline's App in order to enjoy Inflight Entertainment. You could as well have it active in a webpage, I think."
Pros: "Crew were amazing, so friendly and helpful Entertainment system was so so good Landed early"
Cons: "Overnight wasn't the easiest flight in the seats Serving people coffee when others are probably trying to sleep probably wasn't the wisest idea either Pre flight queue system is just baffling"
Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"
Pros: "We liked our friendly and attentive flight attendants, and our safe travel to our destination. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was all very polite, attentive and helpful. They were troupers amid a flight gone bad."
Cons: "My wife and I booked a round trip to California from Connecticut. We had a layover in Dulles with plenty of time to change gates. We arrived at our gate and established our place in the waiting area. We were then required to change gates; this was not horribly stressful as the gate was near by: However, on the return flight things changed. Keep in mind that my wife has arthritic hips and knees and I have arthritic knees. Arriving at Dulles, we went to our waiting area at Gate C-19 and ordered a breakfast at a nearby kiosk. Before our order was ready an announcement stated that our gate was changing to D-24. We waited for our order but had to leave the coffees behind because the lids did not fit correctly and we didn't want to spill them on ourselves while hurrying to the new gate (about a mile away). We finally got to that gate and boarded the plane. We wanted to wait to eat our food until we were airborne. We waited on the plane for about 45 minutes in the heat. During that time the "gate attendant" announced that they were waiting for that pilot who could not be found but was in the airport. At the same time my United App on my iPhone messaged me that there was a mechanical issue with the plane and we were waiting for another plane. At the 45 minute mark we were told the plane had a mechanical issue and we would have to disembark and go to Gate D-1 (about 1/2 mile away). My wife and I were already exhausted and needed to stop, but we did not know how long we had before boarding the new plane so we pushed onward. We then were told the plane would be a couple hours and that there was snack and water at no charge. My wife and I proceeded to dissect our breakfast sandwiches to eat what ever was still less than discussing. The new plane arrived and all else went well. We were delayed over 3 hours but made it to Connecticut; exhausted and sore. We had been awake for over 29 hours by the time we hit Hartford, CT. This experience will linger in our minds for a long time and travel by United my not be possible for us. We are very traumatized."
Cons: "United service was uniformly poor. When we checked in at Dulles Airport, we had to go to two different counters to send our luggage. The United check-in / baggage attendant determined that two of my bags were 'oversized.' I have travelled dozens of times with these same bags, including on this trip, and none of the airport determined the bags to be oversized. The United seats, which we had purchased as "Premium Economy" from the Lufthansa site were "Economy Plus" and not worth the extra $ 275 per seat. The United plane was not well-maintained and had several obvious defects. If United wants "Star AlliNCE" to mean something, they need to do as well as Lufthansa."
Cons: "Crowed and flight delays"
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Pros: "The stewards were nice and they were prompt. The plane seemed to be well cleaned inside and they were quick to get everyone boarded and bags stowed underneath. The pilot knew what he was doing and I had no worries there. Everyone was doing their jobs as well as they could be done."
Cons: "The air nozzle above my seat was broken and would not turn off so I freezing the entire flight, as well as the tray table seeming like it was meant for the lap of an infant versus myself and I can't imagine how someone with longer legs than myself dealt with the way it folded down. The take off was rough either seemingly due to tires or perhaps a rough runway. The wifi on the plane would not work. It worked ok my first flight but not on the second. I don't know why and no one knew why either, had the latest app and it was updated to the current version."
Pros: "I liked that they were polite and friendly during the national United flight groundings due to the computer error."
Cons: "I did not like the terrifying situation in which the pilot said we would be landing in 15 minutes (at this point we were close enough to the ground that I could see cars ) but then without any further announcement proceeded to point the plane upwards and started flying up up up so that all the city lights disappeared and all I could see were stars next to us. I asked 2 different flight attendants wtf was going on and they both said "oh he's just looking for smooth air" which was clearly BS because I was in the very last row of the plane and if there had been rough air I would have been the first to feel it. After inexplicably shooting upwards for what felt like an eternity we finally turned around and ultimately landed and guess what, no rough air to be found. Now I know why airplane pilots update you all the time, because when he pulls a maneuver like that without any warning it is terrifying and all I could think of was the suicidal dude in Germany from Lufthansa. Not cool. Other than that the flight was fine and they were really nice despite the like 3 hour delay or whatever it was. It cost me an extra $60 cause I arrived so late my husband and baby couldn't pick me up anymore but they offered a credit for a future flight so it's ok. I appreciate the gesture."
Pros: "Second flight was a million times better"
Pros: "Arriving safely at home."
Cons: "Our gate was changed multiple times with absolutely terrible communication. The computer system had gone yet and everything seems extremely disorganized. There were even flyers getting on the plane to TX when they were traveling to other destinations because of the lack of communication and the crew not throughly checking. The seating was the smallest space in all of the other airlines I have flown. The crew was less than friendly and yelling down the aisle about buying snacks and other drinks although it was a late night flight and many people were sleeping. Overall, it was an uncomfortable and frustrating experience. Luckily the flight crew had a smooth flight and got us safely to San Antonio. Only positive about the experience with United. This was all taking place along with our flight being delayed with out the monitors at the airport being updated and no notification via text or the United app."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We where delayed for two hours or so, if you asked upon arrving during what should have been boarding you got a curt remark no information. There way no anouncement about a delay just one that the crew arrived, nothing about why we where delayed or estimation of time when we would board. Other delayed fights where getting information over the loud speaker. The attendants left the area came back when we could board and hurded us on the plane. Not a friendly face or smile. Everyone was tired, a little civility would have gone a long way"
Cons: "I was in the very last row and I was exhausted but I still couldn't sleep because one, my seat doesn't recline at all in that row; two, because the flight crew were chatting and laughing the whole time and it was very distracting. When the seat in front of me leaned back, I had even less room to move so I was stuck seated upright for two hours. Very uncomfortable, very exhausting."
Pros: "Comfort. Economy plus was only $75 at check in. Well worth it for the leg room."
Cons: "They didn't offer pillows for a 4 hour non stop flight. I would have slept much better with a pillow"
Cons: "I was bumped from my confirmed flight and had to sprint across the airport to catch an earlier flight where they put me in the back of the plane in a middle seat with an entertainment monitor that didn't work. The flight attendant said she'd try to reset the monitor and then never came back the rest of the flight. I also was not compensated for agreeing to take another flight than the one I booked, paid for and successfully checked in for. I also got into Austin later than I wanted with this new flight I was forced to take. Overall this experience was a terrible one unfortunately."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. Crew was kind to allow me to use an empty seat in the middle row and get more space. Managed to connect to onboard entertainment with a tablet and avoided to use the tiny screen that still exists on United's 767s."
Cons: "Food was a bit tasteless."
Cons: "The lack of breakfast options. Lack of room."
Pros: "Aircraft remained grounded for 1h due to a door switch with malfunction."
Pros: "Very smooth and comfortable flight."
Cons: "So we arrived at the desk after a 7hr international flight ready for the final 1hr leg - only to be confronted with "flight overbooked" looking for 9 volunteers - how can you over book a 40 seat flight by 9 ???? So we had an anxious wait wondering if we'd be dumped from the flight - we weren't but it wasn't enjoyable waiting for the flight and our meeting with our grand kids."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My connecting flight from Chicago to Madison was cancelled with no explanation and no other alternatives provided, other than to get a hotel in Chicago and try to catch a flight to Madison the next day. United said they would not cover the cost of transportation to a hotel or the cost of the hotel. In addition, my luggage was misplaced and sent to Madison and could not be located. The number United provided to me to check on the whereabouts of my bag no one ever answered, even though I called multiple, multiple times."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, pilots did fine job."
Cons: "The searing was really, really cramoed. I am 5-10, 190 lbs. My knees were up against the seat in front of me. The "tray table" was only 6x10". I really felt claustrophic on these two flights. Took medicine to help me overcome the anxiety of such cramped space. I doubt I will fly Frontier again because of this. The lack of space is really disgusting."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was 6 hours late was hard."
Cons: "I liked the spacing between the seats, but reclining would be nice."
Cons: "Delayed each flight for 4+ hours. Miserable seating no tv nothing it aS awful."
Cons: "My bags cost more than my flight And the tray tables are ridiculously small Every beverage u have to pay for"
Pros: "Despite two weather delays, getting into SLC late due to snow Crew boarded efficiently & in a courteous manner."
Cons: "Didn't know about the $ 45 carry on charge:-("
Pros: "Cheaper prices. Safe flight in a steel tube. Because Frontier charges for food, the stewards/stewardesses were very quiet about it and let the passengers sleep."
Cons: "Food costs extra. the fact that I didn't get notice beforehand about purchasing my bag space before getting to the front counter and paying there. So it was more expensive. Boo! The fact that baggage costs money. The fact that you get yelled at over the airline PA that if you can no longer place your carry on in the overhead bins unless you paid for it, and that your bags must now go underneath the seat in front of you, when leg space is already tight. And, no, I am not overweight by a long shot."
Pros: "I was seated well on both flights. Window then the isle. For a big man those are great seats"
Cons: "The cost of the food"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Who likes Frontier's system of making you pay for everything? It makes me feel degraded before I even get on the plane where I sit in the last row because I refuse to pay more for my seat. I hate flying Frontier and yet do because it goes where I need to get."
Pros: "Steel seats"
Pros: "The plane was spacious."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable with no recline or movable headrest options. Paying for a carry on bag was outrageous. More expensive than a checked bag. I checked in online and meant to pay for a checked bag, but accidentally payed for a carry on. When I went to check in in the morning for the flight they wouldn't refund me a portion of the money. Paying for soda or juice, also ridiculous. The delays were also absurd. We did not get explanations for why were just sitting on the run way and not taking off."
Pros: "Departed on time. Flight generally fine."
Cons: "Baggage service in Denver. Considering that Denver is a major hub for Frontier, I would have thought that the baggage claim process would be good. On the contrary, we and about 15 - 20 other customers waited more than 90 minutes for our baggage. The conveyer belt bringing the baggage up to the carousel stopped twice. The second time, it was not fixed for nearly 30 minutes - AFTER THIS WAS BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THREE DIFFERENT FRONTIER BAGGAGE PERSONNEL. Frontier baggage personnel were ineffective and indifferent. I asked one Frontier employee about the delays - the only response I got was " They were a little short handed and little behind. " " Total Indifference " seems to bear the Frontier customer service motto as far as baggage is concerned - and I paid for the damn baggage service."
Cons: "Baggage claim. We waited 90 minutes to get our baggage at the main hub of Frontier in Denver. Frontier baggage employees were incompetent and totally disinterested and and had no idea there was any problem with baggage. When this was brought to the attention of three different Frontier employees, no fix was made for nearly thirty minutes - and this was the second time that the conveyor belt stopped. Frontier employees were totally indifferent and did nothing to personally help rectify situation. Customers from multiple flights were waiting extended periods of time. Horrible service and enough to make paying customer refuse to use Frontier in the future."
Pros: "Direct from DIA to DCA, great schedule."
Cons: "New plastic seats with little to no cushion, un-reclinable seats, no headrests, no healthy food choices."
Pros: "Flight was OK. Got hit with added charge for "carry-on overhead bin" luggage. One cup of complementary water. Everything else is over priced pay as you go. Apparently new owners are really into sticking it to the customers. Not this one again. At least the use of the restroom is still free. For now anyway."
Cons: "Paying for over head storage. Got stuck for about 25 minutes getting to gate."
Pros: "The credit and staff were friendly."
Cons: "I could not get online to get my boarding pass. (Twice) I had to pay for my luggage even though I only took one piece. It took me an hour to get my first boarding pass because I had to call and they had to walk me through it because it wouln't let me on. The second time the man told me the website was down which wasn't true. I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. Lastly, you have to pay for any drink or food you get on the plane. There is nothing cheaper about Frontier although it appears to be cheaper. With all these fees, it is more than say , Southwest."
Pros: "I liked that I finally flew with Frontier and there were no issues with baggage or otherwise."
Cons: "That there are always a minimal amount of staff at ticketing and they quickly get behind as they can't manage a barrage of people in line for ticketing. There were no e-ticketing kiosks from what I observed."
Cons: "Seats are plastic that don't recline. Nickled and dimed for everything from bags to seat selection. Checked bags slow to baggage claim both ways. Horrible operation, stick with Southwest or Delta"
Pros: "The people who took our boarding passes at both sides."
Cons: "Miserable and uncomfortable seats. Everyone was moaning and complaining."
Pros: "Arriving at Denver, NO gates available...we sat on the tarmac about 1 hour, with the seat belt light lites on. Captain told us there would be a delay until a gate opened up. He, nor any of the stewardesses made any other contact for at least 1/2 hour. Finaly, the captain said we could use the restrooms as we waited. NO contact from the flight crew, or other contact from the Captain until we were finally led to a gate. Communication is everything. It would have eased the temperaments of the passengers a great deal to have more updates, and even the presence of a stewardess. NOTHING>"
Cons: "The PA system is incredibly loud, especially on the ground. I ended up trying to cover the speaker with my hand. Should be super easy to turn down the volume for various conditions like boarding and taxiing"
Cons: "Not even water free. And they lost my luggage"
Pros: "Convenient checkin and boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Cons: "$30 to check a bag and then they lost my luggage."
Cons: "When we checked in at the counter they did not inform us about carry-on charges. Most airlines don't charge fees for carry-ons, but frontier does. We had to pay $60 each for small carry-on at the gate. This practice is unfair to people who are not familiar with cheap airline business models. They should be more transparent about their fees on the ticket and at the counter. This cheap airline is so cheap that they couldn't hire enough staffs at the DCA gate. There's only one staff checking in the tickets at the gate and we had to wait until everyone went into the plane to pay for our $60 check in fees."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Need to pay for snacks"
Pros: "Crew was professional, the non-stop flight schedule was the best option from Denver to Reagan."
Cons: "Seats on the Airbus319 are the least comfortable I've ever found-- narrow, unpadded armrests, a nonfunctional tray to hold a computer, and minimal legroom. I am 5'10"/180 lbs and usually can tolerate long transport without complaint.. All services/upgrades are ala carte, which undermines the apparent cost benefits when one compares initial price."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Lots of noisy children"
Pros: "The agent was very kind."
Cons: "We were an 1.25 hour late leaving, and the younger of the two stewardesses was very rude and unhelpful to many of the guests including myself."
Cons: "Frontier doesn't lease enough gates. Waited 35 minutes after landing for gate to clear. Both flights. Frontier late in unloading bags. Waited 40 minutes at luggage carousel. Frontier lost my bag"
Cons: "Frontier is an airline that calls itself low cost but the prices do not match the value. The star rating denotes a comparison to other airlines"
Pros: "Clean plane ran on time. Best price."
Cons: "Extra bag fees a killer. So, not really best price, I guess. Seats were very basic. Clean but did not recline our have much padding."
Cons: "The three hour delay which was only partially explained by weather."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the luggage check in and gate attendant at DCA were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats were rigid and uncomfortable. Crew was unpleasant. When we arrived at our arrival gate in DEN (90 minutes late due to an unavoidable weather delay), they were unprepared for our arrival and we waited over 30 minutes before they could pull the plane to the gate and offload everyone."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are very comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on, water, the seat. The seat didn't go back and was cramped and hard."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The 3 people in front of me must have chain smoked a carton of cigarettes on the way to airport with the windows up. Flight attendant would not move me-- they had serious attitude and clearly need some customer service classes. Had an allergic reaction from smokey smell sneezing and coughing. Nose burned and started bleeding from the airplane air (almost as if the filters were not changed on the a/c blowing on my face). Seats wouldn't recline. 30 min delay leaving airport (direct flight from Denver to San Antonio, but yet we sat on runway bc of storms in LA???) arrived to SA late at 10:15 pm. Stood and waited for another 30 min for bags to come out with ZERO communication from airline letting us know which luggage carrosel to stand at. Meanwhile the lovely folks at southwest had to finally make an announcement for Frontier to give us any amount of info. Doubt I will ever go this budget airline again. Awful. Saved $75 instead of flying southwest. Wasn't worth it."
Pros: "nothing really stood out."
Cons: "check in wouldn't take cash. plane was delayed 45 minutes on the tarmac. very noisey while sitting and waiting (bad hydraulics?). Plane was old, smelly and very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight was non-stop and shead if schedule. Fare was competitive."
Cons: "Seats do not recline. No free beverages. Space is crowded unless you pay significant upcharge."
Pros: "Boarding process was fast. Flight left on time. Crew were polite and helpful. Bathroom was clean and odorless."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline! So uncomfortable. Non-alcoholic drinks should be free. Crew should let passengers onow about "happy hour" drinks and deals available...I would have purchased one."
Cons: "Awful seats. The need to pay for every little thing."
Pros: "Direct flight from DCA to Denver. Flight times."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding process. Bait and switch ticket pricing. No seat recline. Hard seat."
Pros: "Everything was efficient, smooth flight, and we landed--that's a good flight, right? We even landed 30 minutes ahead of schedule, which was great since I had to wait at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "It was my first time flying with Frontier and I didn't know about the bag charges and seat charges--that's on me though. Not sure I will fly with them again, as waiting for what COULD have been my carry-on at the carousel took so much time... then again, it makes it easier and quicker to board and de-board. But the seat charges were still ridiculous. Wish drinks and like, pretzels could be free just so we don't deplane with harsh breath."
Pros: "Frontier is an awful company, I do not recommend them"
Cons: "They have many hidden fees (over 70 dollars for two bags), cranky employees (one stewardess reprimanded a passenger for talking during the safety presentation, and actually stopped the presentation for the whole plane until he didn't make a peep), uncomfortable seats with basically no useable tray back, and display a general overall sourness."
Pros: "All was on time, crew was friendly, emergency on board was handled well."
Cons: "The seats are not movable, so you could not lean back a little. No screen for entertainment, tray table was less than half the normal size, uselss, snack choices, had little that one might consider healthy. A lot of junk food, and a huge offering of alcoholic beverages. Could we maybe have healthier food. It could still be pre-packaged somehow. Cost of carry on: $30. Checked suitcase: $25. That did not really make any sense, other than they make more money that way. Also irritating that if you want to have a specific seat, rather than waiting for what you might get at the airport, you have to call them, and pay $13 for a seat reservation. They are nickel and diming you, or rather in dollars. It is a rip off."
Cons: "Overall not happy with my Frontier experience. Extra charges for bags and seat assignment are really ridiculous if they aren't explained upfront. Would have booked on a different airline if I'd realized those fees would drive up my fare another $50. After all that the plane itself feels crowded and uncomfortable. Their "schedule" is also misleading and neither of my flights took off or landed as advertised. I also really hated watching flight attendants (people responsible for your safety!) finish each flight by pitching a credit card. Truly awful."
