Cons: "There were two (2) obnoxious and drunk Irishmen directly behind us who kept pushing our seats, screaming obscenities for at least 5 hours while playing poker. The flight crew continued to serve them beers and did nothing to shut them them up. If I was not so content on getting to my destination, I would have knocked them out on the plane!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "They were offering free checked carry-on luggage at the gate so took advantage of that which got my wife and I pre-boarding. Which was a good thing because the overhead bins were awful on this dinosaur plane."
Cons: "I thought we were getting a history tour upon boarding as one of the first airplanes ever constructed or something. There should never be an airplane that doesn't have personal entertainment on board for an 11+ hour flight. The main cabin had two monitors up front on each side and one in the middle section. We paid for "premium" seats, no charging options. The overhead storage could barely hold the smallest of carry-on luggage. The food was mediocre at best. We were pretty close to the front but every time the beverage cart made it to us the wine was already empty from the previous passengers. Overall pretty miserable flight"

Pros: "El problema es que el vuelo estaba sobrevendido y han cerrado las puertas antes con lo cual me he quedado abajo sin pode abordar. En el aeropuerto de Denver habia solo dos personas en el securty check por lo cual la demora fue involuntaria en mi caso. Cuando estoy haciendo la fila para ingresar al avion (esyando en la misma cola antes de ingresar) me informanque no podre embarcar..(claro ya habia designado mi billete a otras personas. pesima atencion y pesimna experiencia con los empleados de ese vuelo. Denver a Miami"
Cons: "Far too crowded"
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Pros: "Because our plane sat on the tar mat in both White Plains and D.C. for over 40 minutes after an hour delay, we missed our connection to Knoxville. AA refused to offer any assistance with a hotel or rental car and literally ran through their script versus showing any empathy. Terrible experience and will never fly AA again."

At the time of my flight to White Plains at 1:50 PM there was no snow in Chicago or at White Plains, Moreover the 6 PM flight left to White Plains when it was snowing both here and there. The only option given to me was standby on the 6PM flight. So, I had to cancel my flights and it ruined myu weekend."

Cons: "Why would you pay to watch anything? We don't care for Direct TV. Just give us something to watch w/o paying."
Pros: "I liked that I was given spacious accommodations for myself and my service animal."
Cons: "I didn't like that we then sat on the plane for 2 hours, then had to get back off. I don't really blame United Airlines for this because there was a storm. But if Kayak wants me to rate the flight I'd have to say it was bad because it didn't even occur."

All the things needed to make a horrible flying day an even worse day for customer service. BUT the flight crew and terminal teams did an amazing job keeping things together and keeping guests happy. They communicated all the information they knew in a timely manner, and made sure to correct any connections that needed to be processed before the plan landed. Also they kept their calm as people flipped out."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues. The AC was not working but they had us sit in the plane for an hour in the heat while they tried to fix it. Then finally had us deplane to wait for replacement plane. Not that the employees weren't polite and courteous because they were, but the last time I had a delay like that the airline gave everyone vouchers for $100 off next flight they booked. Your company let us watch TV for free. Hardly comparable!"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight customer service had attitude"
Pros: "The crew was so pleasant and the plane was very clean"
