Pros: "Flight attendant was a little rude"
Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time. Besides that. Not much."

Cons: "No amenities at airport"

Pros: "On time . No significant delays cost of ticket low."
Cons: "Tiny plane with small seats never that comfortable."
Pros: "I took two connecting flights on American Airlines between Los Angeles and Lisbon period on the website American claims to have charging and or electrical ports in every row. There were none on either flight. To make matters worse, when my tablet and phone batteries both died before the end of the first flight, there was no inflight entertainment, other than 1 ridiculous thing available, on either flight. American has switched to BYOD for entertainment, but forgot to provide a way to charge our own devices. Incredibly stupid."
Cons: "On top of that, one of the flight attendants on the Philadelphia to Lisbon run was a hella snarky guy with a bad attitude all the way through. I would be surprised if I am the first person to complain about him."

Pros: "It was just great"
Pros: "Quiet, easy to sleep on"
Cons: "Running late, but only by 30 mins. Better than it could have been!"
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"

Cons: "I was so sick of waiting for the delay and remembering my horrible previous flight that I opted to meet my friend who lives in North Carolina and will be driving home to Richmond instead."
Pros: "The flight had a 3+hour delay leaving New York and the connecting flight from Phoenix had another hour delay. The customer service rep on the phone did her best to help me but there was no way for me to get to my destination on time (I had given myself a 2.5 hour cushion."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays made me miss my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner-- and i was the best man. Completely unacceptable."
Cons: "4:00 pm Flight from Charlotte to Richmond was cancelled; Was unable to reconnect on another flight until 11:00 pm. Waited in airport for over 8 hours. No voucher for food or beverage while waiting. Nothing was even provided on plane not even water"
Cons: "Airline didn't take customs for an international flight into account when scheduling the flight. We had to wait over an hour for "customs" to attend to the arriving flight."
Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."
Cons: "Direct tv sucks! Had to watch trailer 3 times before movie started. If switched to another movie it started part way. Flight attendants instead of one long announcement made three announcements few seconds between thus cutting in and out of movie."
Cons: "The bathroom on the flight from Denver to Santa Barbara was the WORST EVER! I doubt it has ever been cleaned and the poor people that had seats near or at the rear of the plane should have been refunded their money having been subjected to the smell of an “indoor outhouse!” Shameful!!"
Cons: "working bathroom and entertainment system"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Snarky flight attendant. Plane was late."
Pros: "The crew was great."

Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"
Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a technical issue and then the plane was very cold for most of the flight. And they said my green-tagged carry on would be at the gate when I arrived in Richmond. But then we arrived and they put it at baggage claim instead where we had to wait 20 minutes for it. Too many things were not comfortable or convenient on this particular flight."
Cons: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."
Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."
Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."
Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"
Cons: "cushion on the seats are a bit dead. I wish they notified us of gate changes at O'Hare."
Pros: "The flight length and capacity was fine. Crew was nice enough."
Cons: "The plane was outdated, the entertainment was a screen smaller than my phone and had only set movies or shows that played in repeat. Apparently you could download their app and watch other stuff but we weren't informed of that at all while waiting to board which would have been sensible (when there was Wi-Fi access). For a long flight, that would have been nice. They also made a big scene about the bathrooms, apparently us in economy didn't pay enough to use the bathrooms in front of the thin blue curtain that wasn't really closed. It was a bit weird, they're just crappy bathrooms regardless of where they are on the plane."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of the airline"
Pros: "Crew quite helpful"
Cons: "Entertainment only available through personal devices No food unless purchased Quite shaky ride due to weather Worst seat (in the back close to the restroom. Restrooms were smelly)"
Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"

Cons: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "That they lost my bags"
Pros: "The seats on this United flight were far more comfortable than the longer Seattle-Chicago hop. We had more legroom, too."
Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Cons: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The over all experience"
Pros: "Flight crew friendly & helpful."
Cons: "Overbooked. No overhead storage."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."
Pros: "They were very understanding organization. The flight kept changing . It was like that coming and going"
Cons: "They were very un organization the flight was changed both coming and going it messed my plans up on going and coming and no one cared."
Cons: "still haven't left."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"
Pros: "My mother was the one that flew. But after intense interrogation she divulged that the planes were on time and employees pleasant. Nothing stood out good or bad. Just the way a flight should be, in my opinion."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The delay from Cancun caused us to miss our connection. The ground crew gave no help, information, or baseline customer service. We were referred to one person after the other only to finally end up in a 3hour line at customer service where we were told we miss the ground transportation and would have to find our own way home. We rented a car from Hertz and drove to Richmond arriving at 5:30am.... very disappointing."
Pros: "Once the plane was good to go everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."
Pros: "I wasnt on plane long"
Cons: "Our flight was continuously delayed. Our layover actually took than the the drive from DC to Richmond would have taken. I also misplaced my phone on the flight and had no help when I called United looking for assistance today."

Cons: "Boarding process is better than some, but stinks compared to Southwest."
Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and a very smooth ride"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"

Pros: "personal service"
Pros: "The onboard crew was lovely, I especially appreciated them asking those who were not transferring to another plane to wait until those who were got off as we were 45 minutes late"
Cons: "The male gate agent in pittsburgh was the rudest and least helpful person I have every met in all my travels. When flight was delayed for weather reasons, and looking like we might not connect in ORD he could only say 'call united'"
Pros: "I enjoyed the free United wifi because I could follow the flight progress in real time."
Cons: "They need free wifi!"
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Cons: "Nothing was fine"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."
