Complimentary snacks were were substantial and service was constant. I hate going to the bathroom on the plane and it was so roomy for airplane bathrooms. The pilot was hilarious!"
Cons: "Only complaint was nothing that can be changes. I had a middle set and it was quite cramped...my computer didn’t fit on the tray or would get smashed when the person in front of me reclined."
Cons: "Waited in the runway and then taxied forever"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "Very short flight. Not much to say"

Cons: "Delta rescheduled me automatically and I woudl not have found out if I did not call their re-booking center."
Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"
Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."
Cons: "App did not work for entertainment."
Cons: "I never got to Cabo. It took 2 hours for Delta to de-ice the plane in Milwaukee. Because of the long delay we missed the flight to Cabo. We asked Delta to book us on another flight to get us to Cabo today, Delta reps said nothing was available. Delta gave us a discounted coupon for a hotel in Atlanta and rebooked us on a flight to Cabo tomorrow."
Pros: "Direct flight, on time, friendly crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "The snack was nice."
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."

Pros: "The baby"
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Pros: "It was quick and on time relatively smooth flights with little turbulance."
Cons: "Economy seats are too small you literally can't move your elbow without hitting the person next to you. And there was no point at which we weren't all touching legs."

Pros: "The plane was not so new or good"
Cons: "The plane and the atention"
Cons: "Late taking off"
Pros: "Quick, efficient boarding. Good crew. Comfortable seats. On schedule."
Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"
Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"
Pros: "The crew, as always, were fantastic."
Cons: "Being delayed for hours because of bad weather 5 days ago is unfathomable. Delta needs to fix the IT scheduling issues causing the frequent delays."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Everything! Flight late, seats to close, worst customer service in the skies!"
Pros: "Ease in finding another connecting flight get to Miami when our connection was delayed."
Cons: "Time between connection should be 2+ hours"
Pros: "All 4 legs of our flight were right on time, and the planes appeared to be clean."

Pros: "Clean plane, courteous personnel, everything on time"
Cons: "Getting the food back would be nice."
Pros: "The plane felt new!"
Cons: "The carry-on space underneath the seat was limited by the entertainment system box"
Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was great."
Cons: "The flight was crowded, no overhead bin space from passengers putting coats and jackets in the bin instead of under their seats. I was in the middle seat between two large men breathing down on me while they slept. It was a nightmare. On a flight that long the seats shouldn’t be that close in proximity nor should larger passengers be allowed to sit in seats too small for their body type. That’s not discrimination that’s logical."
Cons: "I’m tall. And there is no room to put my legs or my arms."
Cons: "Faster baggage pickup at DFW"
Pros: "Crew was gracious and helpful"
Cons: "Seating is always crammed, uncomfortable, people packed in like sardines. But I guess that’s par for the course with all airlines nowadays."
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early!"
Cons: "When checking in, it indicated a smaller plane. I was not in a window seat and I had to check my baggage (and wait at the baggage terminal)."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"
Pros: "Crew was snappy in getting people in plane and checking in carry ons since occupancy had been reached."
Cons: "Lack of adjustable headrest on seat."
Cons: "Hot crowded late horrible"
Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"
Cons: "Seat number is crazy. ACDF. How about ABCD..."
Pros: "The boarding process was not complicated and my moved along in an orderly fashion."
Cons: "Make the seats more comfortable! Especially on long fights where the risk of blood clots are higher."
Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"
Pros: "Quick f playing AA"
Pros: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and not very attentive. Although one person did get sick and caused the crew to be shorthanded that’s no excuse to not smile and be friendly. I wanted to throw away some beverage cups and no flight attendant came through for almost an hour. The food sucked."
Cons: "Much better food, even though we were economy class the food could have been better. Also, I was told and researched that there would be an AC outlet at my seat and all there was is a USB port. I rented a portable CPAP machine and couldn’t use it. Cost me $120."
Cons: "Seats are small but I understand why just dont like it."
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "My flight from Madison to Chicago got cancelled and I had to drive for three hors to get to o’ Hare."
Pros: "Their CRJ was very comfortable. More comfortable and modern than what I’ve seen on a lot of Skywest/delta connection flights. Crew was great"
Pros: "The very personable crew and the efficiency at which all were attended to."
Cons: "The food that is high on carbohydrate."
Pros: "Orderly boarding and on time."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Pros: "Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly)."
Cons: "This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendant was one of the best that we have ever had on this flight. Since we were a late afternoon flight out of O'Hare we did had a departure delay. But the flight attendant served us drinks and snacks while on the ground. And after we took off he came around again and offered us more drinks and snacks. As we departed the plane he even offered us snacks to take with us."
Cons: "Small plane, cramped seating."
Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Stingy with the cookies. Somewhat uncomfortable seating. But what can anyone expect anymore?"
Cons: "I wish there was another option for a snack. There are many companies that would probably love to advertise through distribution to airline passengers."
Cons: "The fact that my original seats were not given. The other issue was that Alaska wasn’t my airline but American was. They didn’t even tell me until I got to the gate, moved over to another and then got transferred over to my gate."
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on luggage. There was no problems on the way up to DC, just on the way back."
Cons: "An extremely rude woman told me there was no space to place my bag in the overhead compartment and forced me to step aside and check my backpack. I didn't have a purse or any other item, just a backpack. I told them I had medication and they told me to just put it in my pockets. So I stashed my medicine in my pockets and had no room for my personal items or valuables. I had a hiking backpack with a water bottle in the side, and since they forced me to check the bag, my water bottle flew out of the pocket while it was being loaded onto the plane. Fortunately they at least tracked me down and brought my stainless steel water bottle to my seat. However, it wouldn't fit in the pocket in front of me and I had no other bag to store it in so I had to hold it and a few other belongings in my lap for the entire flight. I also had some other fragile items in my backpack that may or may not be okay. Also, when I boarded the plane, there was still space...there was no need to be so rude and force me to check a bag being used not only as my suitcase but as my purse as well. I'm so displeased with American, their staff, and their overall disorganization. How ridiculous."
Pros: "My flight was very good and I had no issues.I was very surprised how smooth everything went and I will be use kayak again."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike.I will use kayak again I know that much"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "Since air travel holds little charm for those of us who ride in economy class, my expectations are pretty low. The crew was polite and there were no delays."
Cons: "The food was typically low quality."
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were short and condescending to multiple passengers and made everyone throw away bottled water and food given on the plane threatening that it would prompt search by the agriculture department during customs. Additionally, skipped rows for food service and trash pick up."
Pros: "Once again, another good and on time flight with American. I was once again surprised."
Cons: "Landing was ROUGH"
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "Kind and courteous crew. Soft blanket for free."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. There was no internet. There was no power for electronics. There was only one movie option (terrible selection) and the screens were spaced out so far I couldn't have seen it anyway. All of this would have been ok for a short flight but for an overseas flight it was the worst I've experienced."
Cons: "The 3 hours delay and your workers giving the same speech " the plane is on its way" and then to make thing worst your Airlines looses my bag"
Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"
Pros: "Crew was professional. Boarding was effcient"
Cons: "As for confort, let's say that we know now how sardines feel in their tiny can."
Pros: "Entertainment, 110 plugins for devices, internet."
Cons: "only free meal option was cinnamon cookies."
Pros: "Crew professional and pleasant"
Cons: "Food not applicable"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seat very uncomfortable. American doesn't let you standby for earlier flight- charges 75 dollars Gate agent wasn't helpful-pointed in general direction of kiosk to pay the 75 dollars Flight attendants passed up our entire row for drinks"
Cons: "our flight was delayed, and no other options"
Pros: "i liked that the flights were right on time."
Cons: "the plane was a bit cramped but I guess there isn't that much room in a plane to begin with."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. I got home at 1 am instead of 10 pm."
Cons: "Check in problems with precheck. There seems to be a consistent issue with seeing our precheck on our boarding pass. This has happened twice. Otherwise good overall. Time to fix the problem"
Pros: "Seats and layout was updated. More room in economy. Staff was personable 3 bathrooms in economy rather than just 2."
Cons: "Offer dinner service for a six hour flight."
Cons: "Older airplane with ragged seats; food wasn't very good"
Pros: "Left early and arrived early!"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "First, it was a big ordeal to get seats together, traveling with 3 children. Seats did not recline. No movie screen, entertainment. Weren’t allowed a carryon, only under seat. Will not fly united again."
Cons: "Another airport would be better, no extra charges for bags would be even better!"
Cons: "What a rip off airline trying to nickel and dime you every chance they can. You think you got a value until they add in extra money every chance they can. $13 to pick your seat. Tight fitting seats. They don't allow a carry on bag when you book economy and you have to pay for your carry on. Etc."
Pros: "Fast , good crew . Enough space for bags"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, wonderful crew, even got an appearance from Santa (we flew week before Christmas) which our 3ywar old loved"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. The unusually chipper voices telling us “B-bye”"
Cons: "I remember reading that Aeroflot in Russia has better customer service than United Air Lines. Well, it was on full display today on our flight from LAX to Kona repleat with the veteran battle ax barking orders at passengers; “The Bathroom is by the blue curtaaaaaaiiiins!!!!!’ Poor victim seemed utterly humiliated. Seating is cramped, seats narrow and unsupportive and the old 757’s (c. 1997) entertainment system is ancient...the touch screens seemed unresponsive, but were in fact just slow...as 5-7 seconds would elapse between touching the screen and the command being implemented. A full re-boot was ordered about 30-45 minutes into the flight. As expected, there were some bumps in the air, but we welcommed them because it required the crew to sit down, freeing us of their ultra passive agressiveness."
Pros: "We arrived on time despite leaving 45 minutes late"
Cons: "LAX now buses people to the planes. We stood on the bus for 45 minutes and then drove for 10 minutes on an active taxi way. The crew for united just does not seem motivated anymore on any flight. Even in first class we were offered water only 2 on a 5 hour flight. The crew just sat in the front and looked at their phones. The food made me sick for two days - so it is better to just not eat it and bring your own. It is sad as I united used to be a great airline and now they just seem to focus on what new fee they can charge."
Cons: "The uNited app could not stream video well. The connection was too slow. Too much buffering."
Cons: "No food on a 7 hour flight?? That comes close to torture in my book. Crossing a huge ocean = food you don't have to pay for, in my book."
Pros: "On time, smooth and lots of cabin space for my carried on."
Cons: "United should have allowed the super-economy ticket holder to check in online get my boarding pass especially I didn’t have any bag to check in. I was almost late for my plane because counter assistance is needed in my case, while there was no counter for NO-bag check-in. The kiosk rejected my check-in as well as online check-in. It was confusing and frustrating; I felt like the United Airline did that on purpose to deter the super-economy ticket buyer. Please be aware of time to take to check in with NO BAG with Super-Economy ticket at EWR."
Pros: "I had my own row"
Cons: "Seats are still so bad. I think I got a headache from looking at my phone the whole flight."
Cons: "Really United? They STILL charge for inflight entertainment. Not like I could’ve used it if I wanted to because my screen turned off and on the entire flight. Not so great on a red eye. One of the crew was helpful, the rest short with all passengers."
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled the flights and blamed united airlines. The united airlines would not help and finally ended up having to stay in Frankfurt and now have to leave for Lisbon tomorrow and then onwards."
Pros: "The gate was right next to the one I flew in from."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Pros: "The entertainment onboard was good"
Cons: "Five hour delay due to the aircraft maintenance."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Crew was very positive and helpful despite the delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hr. To use the entertainment you have to download an app, but in order to download the app you have to pay for wifi."
Cons: "Being lied to and saying it was weather related instead of the truth of it was a mechanical issue so United didn’t have to pay for hotel!!!"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great!! The crew was great!"
Cons: "It was SO hot on plane, I was miserable the whole flight. It started out with a delay on the tarmac due to the air conditioning not working. We had to wait for maintenance to fix that. That wasn’t a big deal to me. We didn’t have a connecting flight to catch, so we were understanding....things happen. The problem for me began when HOT air was blowing on my legs the WHOLE flight. I was miserable! They only had pizza for purchase which did NOT sound appetizing in that heat. It was a terribly long flight and I was so happy to land and get off!!"
Pros: "Smooth sailing, the crew was so friendly and flight were all on time. They had really good movies on board which made time fly faster and"
Cons: "Nothen bad to say."
Pros: "Very friendly & accommodating crew. Pilot kept up informed. Personable disposition exuded across the board."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "Notices of changes before anyone else got them like gate changes."
Cons: "Running through Ohare to catch my connection"
Pros: "That it was only a 5/6 hour flight"
Cons: "Movie choices were very limited. Need better snacks than only little mixed crackers."
Pros: "757 first class was excellent"
Cons: "First time using 1st class, now I am spoiled. United coach seats are to small"
Pros: "Watching part of a baseball game at the Chicago airport and reading a book."
Cons: "I did not get to fly to Fargo. I had to drive. all flights were delayed or cancelled."
Pros: "I was able to get an aisle seat"
Cons: "The pain in my ears"
Pros: "The crew was very nice...excellent choices in entertainment...and I appreciate the perk of Preferred Boarding in group 2."
Cons: "We had to deplane 2X for maintenance issues. It was frustrating because it caused a 3-hour delay...however, we do appreciate the safety aspect and would rather be safe than sorry. You also ask us to rate food, but they do not provide food...what do we rate...the soda choices, the teeny bags of snack mix."
Pros: "On the airplane, wonderful crews, friendly and helpful. Food was not that an important to me as much as the friendly faces helpful crew at this. Thank you UA!"
Cons: "ground crew not helpful!"
Cons: "Boarding personnel was short and rude in some instances. Condescending comments were made when passengers were not forming lines to their liking."
Cons: "Airline staff was misleading. When we left Costa Rica hours late and all missed our connections, the staff in San Jose assured us we would be compensated and put up in hotels. This was not the case, and I ended up spending over 30 hours sitting in airports to get from San Jose to Boston, including an entire night in the Houston airport."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options. Attentive crew. Food and beverage selections were great."
Cons: "the side dish for dinner was some oat/grain something that wasn't very tasty."
Cons: "Paying for entertainment ($7.99 for long flights) not good at all. The crew didn't offer to check/ review the menu. Ps: in my flight Houston- Panamá city the entertainment was free through the united app. Also,there was free wifi during my flight ( very good)"
Pros: "Service/flight attendants were great. Flight was smooth mostly. Space was good as nobody next to me. Flt from YYZ via ORD to SFO misplaced my luggage and got it the next day."
Cons: "ORD to SFO was very turbulent and luggage didn't make it. Seats tight in middle for ORD to SFO"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was excellent. Handled communication and our delay very well. Things changes once we were off the plane."
Cons: "Technical difficulties happen but once we had to deplane the communication has been about non-existent. I'm just glad that I don't have to get a boarding pass for a connecting flight like a lot of others on the flight."
Pros: "The travel agent, Tim, in STL worked very hard to get us on a flight."
Cons: "After a cancelled flight, two delays and lost luggage (that we did not receive for two days after arrival) on the way to Boise, we've now been cancelled on the way home to St. Louis. The first cancellation was due to weather. The two delays were due to late crew and refueling issues. Today's cancellation was due to maintenance. Embarassing. I travel often and can guarantee I will never fly United again."
Cons: "You had to pay for internet service in order to watch the free movies."
Pros: "This flight was On Time.."
Cons: "The seats in coach were curved in a weird way. The seats made my posture bad."
Pros: "The stewards were awesome. Funny kind and attentive"
Pros: "The flight crew stayed calm and polite as people were frustrated with the boarding process and a few other errors. The communication was clear and consistent about our delay due to the rain and when we would be landing as well."
Cons: "The two gates were boarding separate aircrafts and the lines because a cluster of confused and irritated people. It was hard to board with all the confusion as our gate kept changing where to line up with our groups and eventually we were able to board. Some of the flight crew was a little snappy when the seatbelt light was on for a long time and people had to use the restroom."
Pros: "Michael Reeves was helpful"
Cons: "The lack of communication to tell us why were delayed. No one told us about the flight being cancelled. We had 3 gate changes, told the flight was coming even though it never left its previous airport. Had to call and switch myself to another flight to get out of Okc."
Pros: "Crew was great and quiet flight"
Cons: "No wifi or video system on plane"
Pros: "Here's the situation- There are massive storms across the state, massive delays across the nation, and a tiny airport packed full of people. 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: "I didn't lol the size of the white planes airport. That plan could hold about 150 people at best.... There was at least 600"
Cons: "Weelchair service is bad"
