Cons: "Food was just a snack"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"

Cons: "I have never had an on time Delta flight, and hopefully, it will happen one day"
Cons: "Customer Service was horrid except for last attendant. At one point one rep sent us running out of a secured area to retrieve our luggage and then go to British Airways for connection. We had 45 minutes in front of BA ticket rep to get us on BA182 and they took so long we missed the boarding due to reps slow processing to issue ticket. Then we were stuck outside of secured area."
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were rude and not very welcoming at all."
Pros: "I got upgraded to comfort + which was great. quick flight, was even early"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"

Pros: "Crew were courteous and overall everything was systematic."
Cons: "I had to pay for my single piece of luggage AND for alcoholic drinks. That doesn't feel right."
Pros: "The first class section wasn't claustrophobic, as some Delta first class sections are. The seats were relatively new, and had good size screens for watching a movie on the long flight."
Cons: "The plane had not been cleaned well in between flights, so there was a sticky substance on the armrest."
Pros: "Service and staff."
Cons: "No entertainment system on a very new A320. Gate G14 and G15 in Minniapolis is always vey contested"
Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "The crew was good and attentive"
Cons: "The management was horrible, if you already knew the pilot was working extensive hours you could have had another pilot on standby just in case... I'm sure it would have been a lot cheaper and less of an inconvenient for everyone on the flight..."
Cons: "Flight left late and missed connecting flight in Atlanta. It's 9:30 pm and I'm still stuck in Atlanta airport."
Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"
Cons: "Flight attendant kept giving nasty looks to a little girl that has to keep going to the bathroom. She also served drinks and crossed over my face each time without even saying "Excuse me." She kept bumping me with the drink buggy and didn't say a word."
Pros: "The customer service was great, the crew was great, the flight was great, everything was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't great cookie!"

Cons: "I paid for a window seat, but there was no window. Contacted WestJet and they refused me a refund."
Pros: "I booked Cathay pacific but they changed to China Southern without any notification."
Pros: "No delays flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "I’m always impressed with the service on WestJet, and they didn’t disappoint on this flight. They were warm, courteous and hard working."
Pros: "It was easy getting through the line and onto the plane. The seat was on the window, which I wouldn't normally sit in, and was comfortable enough for me to get an hour of sleep on an overnight flight; I'm content with that."
Cons: "The fee for changing my assigned seat, thus the window seat, and one of the flight attendants was very impolite; though overall the flight attendants were pleasant enough."
Pros: "Great airport, friendly and helpful staff. Onto e departure and arrival and very little baggage wait in Vancouver"
Pros: "It was smooth and uneventful."
Cons: "It was all fine."
Pros: "I really enjoyed"
Cons: "Due to the fact that my trip to was not clearly indicated as non stop it is the first time in thirty years of regular travel that I did not have a direct flight to Calgary. Then I was not able to change my flight at the airport even though there was room available on a direct Westjet flight leaving as close to the same time. But the worst part as after landing we waited for a very long time for the plane to pull up to a gate (unnecessarily burning fuel and poluting the environment). And finally we waited another very long time for the doors of the plane to be opened for disembarkation. More than 3/4 of an hour waiting on the ground after a one hour flight very late in the evening. As a result I hat to take a cab home from the airport. Now I will try my best to not fly Westjet."
Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Pros: "Everybody was nice. It was my second time flying and they sure do make you feel comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like. It was great all around!"
Cons: "The flight delay"
Pros: "It's a way to get from point A to point B."
Cons: "It's like taking the bus, it is what it is. Not great but it gets you there."
Pros: "Very entertaining flight crew. One attendant cracked jokes sang happy birthday announced wedding party . Never boring very friendly"
Pros: "I like everything"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was uncomfortable.trays were stained and dirty looking."
Cons: "I was told they don't help you store your carry on. At 66 and 5 feet tall this seems like an impossible feat likely to create issues as it falls on my head."
Pros: "Good quick boarding, left on time. Quick luggage at destination."
Cons: "Getting told to leave the plus section while waiting for the washroom. Too cautious with the tiniest bit of turbulence and the seatbelt sign left on for probably 30 minutes too long."
Pros: "Crew was good as usual."
Cons: "Thought the flight may have been delayed due to issues with ice rain in Toronto. From what was said, it wasn't that, some other issue with the plane and a cancelled flight in the west. No email in advance, no apologies, no freebies (like even a stupid sandwich). You sit an extra 2 and a half hours in an airport with a 5 year old before a 4 hour flight, and see how much the lack of anything grates. And paying for the first bag on the flight. And the emails they did send were after we were already at the airport-in no time to do any good. I Usually like West Jet , but losing my faith in them. Wonder how flair is..."
Cons: "Can't rate food. None provided."
Pros: "Both planes departed late and reason given was staff has not yet arrived . First plane could not rationalize the number of people on board ."
Cons: "Service was slow and staff seemed to be very casual about the fact we would be an hour late"
Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."
Pros: "Folks are nice.."
Cons: "Late landing, packed like sardines, couldn’t move my arms in my seat. Tried to choose seat in exit row for leg room but plane was changed so no leg room."
Pros: "Quick and direct. Great staff"
Pros: "Direct flights to mazatlán!!"
Cons: "We are all customers paying to fly from one place to another. Give us all the same service. I’m guessing the ceo’s of WestJet are getting paid enough to care about us."
Pros: "Great service all around."
Pros: "Everything was exceptional"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "The trip to Vancouver was good.....flight attendants very courteous and friendly as usual."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Cons: "Of the four flights I took with WestJet this holiday, 3 were delayed. The flights were frigid. On this flight the agent at the gate was very rude when I asked about checking my bag, lecturing me about the size of the bag and insisting she would have to charge me if it was a full flight, which she said it wasn’t. It ended up fitting just fine in the overhead. Totally soured my experience. I will not use this airline again."
Cons: "One of the crew members was not careful enough while taking something out of the overhead cabinet and dropped something on my head while I was asleep. The crew apologized but it should not have happened in the first place while the aircraft was flying smoothly and there was no turbulence of any kind at that time."
Pros: "The staff were friendly as they had to deal with many annoyed customers. I thought the staff handled the constant delays and cancellations well."
Cons: "My flight to Calgary never happened. In fact due to weather conditions, many, many flights were delayed, some cancelled. No more flights to Penticton, so I had to take a flight to Kelowna after 6:00pm or fly the next day. I met a couple to share a ride to Penticton once I reached Kelowna. My luggage was lost in Calgary and so I went on to Penticton, to Osoyoos. The next day, West Jet delivered my suitcase to me. I appreciate the voucher I was given to buy a few things and the promptness of my luggage. We live in Canada, the weather in the winter can be quite an annoyance and so it was last week."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Seamless boarding"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."
Cons: "No internet and therefore no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you paid for wifi, but with a less than two hour flight the price was rediculous. There was no food or drink, other than water or coffee, unless you wanted to pay almost $2 for a mini can of pop."
Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to see a movie and not have to pay for it. I downloaded the Westjet App and started watching the movie, before take-off, while there was still internet access. Once the flight took off, you had to pay to view the movie from the App. Silly!!!!"
Pros: "It was quick and efficient"
Pros: "Brought our own sandwiches.."
Cons: "We were invited to send our carry iron bags to the hold at the gate. We delivered them to the plane door on the jetway. My wife's bag didn't make it from Edmonton to London Gatwick. That's the last time I send anything to the hold ."
Pros: "The attendants were very cordial and considerate."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Pros: "Good service. Really nice smooth flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "The woman checking my boarding pass before I was going to get on the plane was not very friendly. Because of the full flight they were asking that large carry-ons be checked. I was fine with that especially since I saw it was a smaller plane and I could not maneuver the steps with both my carry-on and my personal item. I asked if I could also check my computer bag and she said no. The fact that I have trouble walking and maneuvering and she wasn't willing to help me out just seemed like very poor customer service. Had I known about trying to maneuver the stairs I would have been more prepared."
Pros: "everything ran very smooth . friendly staff."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat not enough space."
Cons: "Very long wait for bags"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Being disabled I found everyioine very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "row to myself"
Cons: "no free wine!"
Pros: "I was replaced with a new suitcase (not as good quality)"
Cons: "My third suitcase was destroyed while flying with west jet"
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Pros: "2 and 2 seats, all occupied, no distancing."
Cons: "Better seating, boarding from the tail to decrease contact"
Cons: "We boarded on time then Pilot announced that they were working in the plane so we sat at the gate 90 minutes with no air conditioning. I would have much preferred to have been in terminal while waiting for maintenance to repair aircraft"
Cons: "My comments for the Charlotte flight were supposed to be for the flight to San Diego. Boston to Charlotte is too short for there to be any issue."
Cons: "I could not access the games the lady next to me, and others were playing. When I decided to watch movies the earphones were so small they kept falling out of my ears, and I am a small woman. It was a long flight from Tokyo to Dallas, and the lack of diversion became a major irritant."
Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."
Cons: "Staff at Pensacola airport not very helpful or friendly."
Pros: "Clear communication on flight boarding"
Cons: "Attendant could have been more friendly."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and very cramped seating"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Pros: "Kind crew"
Cons: "The plane felt like it was going to fall apart."
Pros: "The crew and seating were good"
Cons: "The entertainment center provided on the hop from Phoenix to Tucson would have been better suited for my flying with three kids to Phoenix than the one Cars movie on the flight"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours because of a mechanical issue. When we reached Savannah we had to wait to get to a gate to get off the plane."
Pros: "My seat location and comfort was good"
Cons: "The flight attendant preformed her duties as if it was a chore and she was too good for this job or she has been doing it so long that she dislikes providing service."
Cons: "Staff, room, boarding process, flight schedule and more!"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."
Cons: "Small space once passenger in front of you lowers their seat back. Difficult to get in and out of my seat like that"
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing cold. Flight on time. No major issuess"
Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"
Pros: "Easy to board. Comfortable seats. Very kind flight crew."
Cons: "did not use the flight. The flight was delayed and I would have missed the connection, so AA switched me to other flights."
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"
Pros: "We didn’t crash, so that’s a plus."
Cons: "Boarded early despite known mech issue. Delayed almost 2 hours. Hottest aircraft I’ve ever been on. All the passengers were sweating and complaining. Absolutely a terrible experience."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."
Pros: "We left right on time. Plane was clean and had option to charge phone"
Cons: "You had to pay to check a bag and you had to pay for food. Ridiculous."
Cons: "Good flight!"
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Pros: "Lo siento. No habla ingles. Me muy guapo."
Cons: "No entertainmento."
Pros: "Arrived early, friendly crew, good exit row seat."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants on American Airlines were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The American crew made a long flight comfortable and bearable"
Cons: "Limited recliner Small seats"
Pros: "On time smooth"
Cons: "While trying to get help with my boarding pass, the woman behind the counter was so rude and nasty. Yelled at me for being at her desk when another American employee took me there."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Walking out in rain to board the plane"
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Cons: "Only suggestion would be to make the connection process a little easier. If the passenger doesn't speak English, the fact you need to print the international ticket in Miami, then re-enter at checkpoint might create confusion."
Pros: "Streaming entertainment with great choices Not too crowded so got my upgrade"
Cons: "Food was disgusting... bland cheese lasagna or small wet noodle salad with piece of chicken. This menu has been going for years! Old B757 No sparkling water but 75 variations of Coca Cola"
Cons: "Airline is run like a circus, horrible experience going to and from Cusco from Lima. I do not know how their poor employees work under such stressful conditions. Spend the extra money and fly LAN or LATAM."
Pros: "Safe flight. Two seats instead of three on the outer aisles. Although the flight was an hour and a half delayed, we landed at the original time. Not sure how that works."
Cons: "Very old plane. No individual entertainment for an 8 hour flight. The old fashion tv were in the middle of the plane. The flight attendant were almost non existent. One toilet did not work. I was very disappointed"
Pros: "Not a good experience so nothing"
Cons: "AA failed to allow me to check in at initial arrival in Grande Prairie airport so I had to rush to get a boarding pass in Calgary where the AA agent told me it was not an AA problem and sent me back to WestJet. WestJet discovered that it was an AA problem and returned me to the AA counter where it was resolved. Then I had to rush to catch the flight and missed any opportunity to have a decent lunch between flights. Then there was no food offered on the AA flight to Dallas."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They didnt tell us that emergency seats do not recling"
Cons: "It was freezing."
Pros: "Very smooth flight with excellent crew!"
Cons: "There were no individual monitors at the seats."
Pros: "Great crew of airplane staff"
Pros: "todo muy bien"
Cons: "The original flught flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. So we never ended up going to Phoenix. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."
Cons: "Everything on this flight was considered an EXTRA. It was uncomfortable and the lay over in Miami made it even worse. Long lines, long distances and extreme delays!"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for more than an hour."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Being 6' 4'' becomes an issue with modern seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Paid extra for a little bit more leg room and ONE free drink which I had to remind them it was free. My seat didn't recline. My Tuscan Wrap was tasteless -- no it tasted like sawdust, and the food was not even complimentary with the "plus" charges like it is on Westjet. No preboarding traveling with a pet. ☹️"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing so far, thanks."
Cons: "JustFly did not release my coupon to Lufthansa or Air Canada, and so I was nearly prevented from flying."
Pros: "Great staff on plane"
Cons: "Plane was overweight due to the plane carrying luggage from a previous flight. This is poor logistics planning on Air Canada. We were delayed by an hour and waited inside the plane on the tarmac while they removed the extra luggage to reduce weight."
Cons: "No offer to have transportation to gate. I am disabled and had a very long walk."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Calgary airport first and foremost went above and beyond for me. The flight then after was the same, friendly attendants, great smooth flight. 5 stars for staff."
Cons: "The headphones are bad, i had my own headphones so it was fine. I did go w the air canada ones first just out of convenience, but they were fuzzy, probably would have ruined the movies."
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "Flight late (30 minutes) as mostly with Air Canada, fortunately not cancelled this time as also common with Air Canada short distance flights Not enough space in overhead compartments for carry on. The lady at the boarding makes it sound like that is the passengers fault."
Cons: "Many connecting flights jammed together F terminal at YYZ. SOME thing caused delay after delay. This really messed up baggage people. Once we boarded after like - 10 delays and a gate change, there were NUMEROUS whole-flight mixups with luggage - so many similar flight numbers traveling to same destination and whole flights awaiting their luggage. Our party of four had our luggage spread through THREE different planes. WTH? No customer service at DTW once we arrived and there were so many livid people. Absolutely awful. We were supposed to arrive at 5PM and it's now 3:11AM. My son just completed filing a luggage claim loss. And we are off to drive home to Grand Rapids two hours away. Nightmare."
Pros: "Friendly service by captain and crew. Frequent information provided abut flight."
Cons: "Food was available for purchase. Only small beverage served with mini sized snacks."
Cons: "The seats are small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Pros: "The crew to Calgary was wonderful. Flights were on time. Airbus was comfortable and quiet."
Cons: "The crew from Calgary to Toronto was average - not pleasant...."
Cons: "For an overnight flight I would have expected the lights to be turned off, or at least dimmed. My plan to sleep and enjoy my day of return did not go ask planned."
Pros: "Seat is not too crowded"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Cons: "Late arriving because of out delay from the original flight and missedvout on our hotel booking"
Pros: "loved the free movies"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were to close together"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."
Pros: "Great food, attentive service and comfortable seating"
Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which is fine. I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."
Pros: "The flight back to Newark was good. Boarding was smooth and crew kept walking around with water to keep everyone hydrated."
Cons: "The plane was old and cramped and entertainment system had issues. Movie choices were not that great."
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "small flights"
Cons: "Screaming kids right behind me for 3 1/2 of the 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Kind crew"
Cons: "Littled staffed"
Cons: "I had to leave"
Pros: "Once again, being on time was important to me. Crew members were nice."
Cons: "I wish they would've offered free snacks on this flight given how long it was. It would've also been to nice to have been forewarned about needing to go through security again, as I had a U.S. connection from Toronto. That takes a lot of time, even with a bit of a layover."
Pros: "Not too crowded"
Cons: "Flight was late by over an hour."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "-majority of tvs were shorted out and not working -plane was heavily delayed so didn't make second transfer flight -one attendant gave us wrong directions to next gate at LAX -LAX airport was under heavy construction which delayed gating gate to gate -Customer service offered no options to how to get to San Diego -now we are in debt with a car rental, gas, and having to go back to the airport twice for the baggage -most likely won't be using United Airlines again"
Pros: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"

Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unhappy, sassy and got frustrated easily."
Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable"

Cons: "Being next to toilets at bulkhead. People queing for bathroom in the extra leg space. I was on the outside seat and people constantly brushed past me and often grabbed hold of the moveable TV set in the dark to steady themselves knocking it. I paid extra money and had more problems. Listened to constant bathroom flushing and odors. Not ideal!"
Cons: "The person checking me in to getting seat assignment must have been having a bad day. She was downright rude."
Pros: "This flight was okay since United Airlines operated it for Air Canada."

Cons: "I have no complaints."

Cons: "The seats claim they have United Private Screening (TV and Movies) using the United app but it was not working. It worked well on the previous flight."
Cons: "Free WiFi kn the plane was hardly working even over US mainland, before it list connection with outside internet over ocean. But it is something I do not care much about."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly. Good service and good entertainment."
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "No issues"

Cons: "Was a disaster we’re stuck at the airport for 3 1/2 hours delayed the flight.... gave us a vautcher for 10$ canadian by the time everything at the airport was closed for food. There were no space for our luggage. Spend 12 hours at airports from Victoria to Las Vegas."
Pros: "That I eventually made it home."
Cons: "Flight from Calgary to Denver delayed three and half hours. Informed of this delay thirty minutes before scheduled departure when our plane hadn’t even left Denver yet to head to Calgary. ( 2.5 hr flight) once finally made it to Denver was informed that we missed connecting flight to Boston. We were then informed since it’s for “weather” reasons earlier in the day that caused a sequence of delays they couldn’t accommodate us for hotel. We were given two “blankets” which were as thin as a sheet and each one bottle of water. Some other people around us received good voucherS. We did not. We walked around the airport for close to an hour looking for anyplace we could lay down and sleep. None were to be found. We tried to sleep on the floor but was so cold and uncomfortable I literally got sick to my stomach. Another fun thing added to mix. We were placed on another flight as 6 the next morning. After no sleeping at all we boarded our next flight Which was not a direct flight to Boston but would be from Denver to Newark then Newark to Boston. We were suppose to originally land in Boston at 0600 Monday. Instead we arrived at 1430 after getting zero sleep. My husband and I were also unable to sit together which was extra special for people around me because after not sleeping I continued to be sick to my stomach."
Pros: "Extraordinary efforts to accommodate bags in the overhead bin."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Quick."
Cons: "Waiting 15 minutes before. Able to unload"
Pros: "GREAT crew members"
Pros: "Flight left on time and attendants friendly"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They behaved with humor, grace, kindness and professionalism."
Cons: "The seats are sooooo cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was a bit less expensive at first, but the charges added up quickly. My only complaint really is that the booking was through Air Canada and the flight was operated through United Airlines. It wasn’t a problem for me but if you only have a Visa debit card and want to pay for checked bags online, this is not possible to do online prior to checking in. You also can’t check in to your flight as you would normally, you get the last available seats and have to pay for any seat changes. All in all, I’d still book through Kayak but I’d make sure that the flight I booked was through the company that operates the flights. It’s will give you more options when checking in to the flight."
Cons: "I was put through a third party airline that had no control of the final booking procedure that I was used to. I could not choose seats or add checked luggage on my visa debit, I needed a credit card. This wasn’t a problem but it could pose problems for some people."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t that helpful."
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment option on this leg of my journey, which makes a four-hour flight seem long."
Cons: "We were not informed about the cause of the delay without asking at the departure desk and other carrier planes flew to San Francisco while our flight continued to be delayed. The posted time also was erratic both at the airport and on the app for the people meeting us. Luckily our time was flexible so though frustrating and inconvenient we managed OK."
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "we waited in the runway for over an hour, my bags also didn't make my connection, the crew never apologized"
Cons: "It would have been great if a movie was provided."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster!"
Pros: "Best united flight I've been on in a very long time!"
Cons: "Poor boarding service"
Pros: "Flight was on time or early which is just what you want"
Cons: "Nothing to say here"
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Pros: "The airplane crew"
Cons: "They left us waiting for hours at the gate without assigning us a seat. When I finally made the line for the third time, the rude lady gave us a seat. Then they didn't call for by groups and we were about to be left on boarding time."
Pros: "This was the worst and most stressful trip of my life. Heard of Murphy's law? Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. And did go wrong again. And again. It wasn't my fault or the people's fault, but an unfortunate chain of circumstances. And United personnel helped me deal with so many challenges and went above and beyond their duty. On the trip to Calgary my flights were delayed, I was denied boarding or the flight was canceled. It took me 3 days to get to my destination and this happened after I arrived 4 hours in advance for every flight, but the first one. I did everything I could in my power, but my best was not good enough. And so when my rental car broke down two hours before my departure, and I failed to start it, I took a cab to YYC and hoped for the best. And United didn't disappoint. They listened to me, respected me and tried to help me as much as they could. My leg cramped and I was not able to cross the hallway to the flight, just as the boarding was starting. The board agents called the wheelchair, walked over to me and tried to calm me down, just as they were wrapping up boarding. They then checked my luggage and held me by the hand all the way to the airplane,"
Cons: "Once again, the agents did the best they could given a set of highly unusual circumstances. Yet the flight was one hour late for a very predictable reason. In the winter it snows in Calgary. You have to de-ice the plane. This takes time. Yet, the airline treated snow as emergency and didn't allow time for that. One hour delay stressed a lot of people out and canceled their plans. Do allow for more time for travel in the winter. It is cost effective and leaves customers happier."
Cons: "Typical American passengers ignoring crews request to NOT place coats and small items in overhead bin. I had to have a "discussion" with passenger to please put coat under front seat. I don't know how crew could be more assertive with this item"
Pros: "Nothing about 9 HOURS in an Airport is great! I walked from where I landed coming from Calgary, to terminal 2 Gate F 17 because that was where the flight to Lexington was to leave from. Then I got notice it was leaving from terminal 1 Gate B 24 so (I'm sure I walked a mile there) to get there. Waited for a number of hours checked my phone and found the departure was back again at terminal 1 Gate F 17!?!?! So I walked another mile back to where I started. At no point was I offered a drink or meal voucher for the 9 hour delay/inconvenience in my flight to Lexington ky. Suffice to say that I will NEVER go on any flight if I have to go back through this airport. I also have horrible knees, which all the walking did not help."
Cons: "I would like to say that as a person with a disability, there is not any support for help getting around. They have plenty of for lack of a better term "golf carts"; but no one utilizing them. Not that I am a world traveler; but this airport could take more than a page from Calgary international in terms of support to those with disabilities. I will NEVER and I do mean NEVER go through something like this again. I expected to be home in Lexington at 5:00pm and did NOT arrive until midnight.??!! This is in my opinion quite unacceptable! What a way to spend a hard earned vacation day! Thanks Luanne Steele"
Pros: "I got from point a to point b."
Cons: "The seats keep getting smaller and more people are being packed in. Not enough lavatories for passengers."
Cons: "We were at the counter 57 min before flight. They would not consider letting us on the flight even though no one else was in line. My father had a heart attack and i was trying to get home. Zero bending the rules."
Pros: "I was upgraded to 1st class"
Cons: "I was not able to check in on the day before. Flight was delayed because flights in and out of SFO had ceased. We we not given any other information. We didn't know if it was weather in the airport was on lockdown. No one was at the customer service desk. The gate agent said they would not rebook but did not know when the flights would resume"
Cons: "I had to take a different flight to make my destination on the same day. I landed 6.5 hours later thanks my original flight."
Cons: "The fact that my wife and I were not able to check in at kiosk is a technology problem, and then we waited in line forever as United tried to deal with other large group of problem customers. Because if their bad service we missed cutoff, even though I had already checked In and we had no checked bags. We We were forced to pay for hotel our of our pocket, get another rental car, and change itinerary to have to go through Denver to get back to Chicago and arrive a full day later, causing havoc with work schedule and coverage for kids. Thumbs down United! I used to be 1K with you, this Is why I don't fly this airline often."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly and cooperative."
Cons: "Process for customs was not well explained (where/how to meet up with bags for customs process). We went through customs on the second leg of the flight with barely enough time to get through customs and then back through security at the Calgary airport. Our flight had been unilaterally changed by the airline due to too tight a connection but the new flight (much less convenient, had to get up at 3:00 am) was as bad or worse. We would have missed our connecting flight if it had not been delayed due to weather at our destination."
Cons: "Flying at the back of the plane is just not as nice of a trip."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "It was a normal flight."
Cons: "The flight was around 20 minutes late leaving, and when we got to San Francisco, there was a lot of fog, and we got delayed another 40 minutes."
Pros: "Boarding from back to front...right on!!!"
Cons: "Attendent wouldn't accept my visa gift card as payment so I was unable to eat"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working. Crew kept announcing erroneous things."
