Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Don’t go overboard"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded and de-boarded quickly."
Cons: "Video entertainment system did not work at first and had to be rebooted."
Cons: "It’s time to update the snacks, bu thank you for serving more than just peanuts. I was very cold on the flight - unusual, but definitely very chilly."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "I like having the adjustable head rests."
Cons: "There was no window in the back row of seats, which was claustrophobic. The seat rows are too close together, that it was hard to focus on the movie on the seatback in front of me. My seat didn't recline at all."
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "Delta is wonderful! Helpful and on time."
Cons: "First class almost always guarantees a much better experience!"
Cons: "Overall, a good short flight."
Pros: "Newer planes with extra large overhead bins are great and the boarding process is much easier and smoother now with all the various breakdown of groups instead of by row."
Cons: "Late boarding. Slow de-boarding."
Pros: "Crew was so friendly!"
Cons: "Food; movie choices"
Pros: "This had one of the best attendants I have encountered. She was extra friendly and made us feel good."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paying for seats"
Cons: "Ran out of snacks by the time they got to my row"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and in time. I enjoyed the WiFi service and the extra room in the seats. Plane was gorgeous! Staff was courteous and professional."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "We boarded late, then sat in a hot plane for an ester 30-40 mins because the route got cancelled. They wouldn’t serve us beverages while it was so hot inside. We landed over 49 mins later into Lax"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is nice but only seems to happen on shorter legs of the trip. Also, too many useless interruptions from crew during movie. You don't have to keep thanking the passengers throughout the flight. And the volume through your headset is way too loud on crew announcements compared to regular listening volume of your program."
Cons: "Forced on later flight."
Pros: "Once we finally boarded, it was fine- plane was new and clean and entertainment system was great. Agents did the best they could with limited information on flight status. Provided snacks at departure gate- but they were all unhealthy."
Cons: "Flight originally booked with 2:30pm departure time, was pushed to 4:30pm a few weeks in advance. Then the flight was delayed on the day by 30 minute intervals until 9pm. Finally, we were switched to a different gate to board a different plane. Then sat on the plane at the gate for another hour so they could load all the bags. We didn't take off until 10:30pm- painful."
Cons: "The airline booked us on two flights from SLC to BWI. Unfortunately, our seats on our original connection were released so when we arrived at our gate our only option was to split up and take middle seats - even though we had paid over $100 ea. for upgrades. Delta offered nothing for this. One of the flight attendants was in a terrible mood - she was cold and rude and would not even look at passengers - which her fellow crewmates noticed and tried to compensate for."
Pros: "on time, good service,"
Cons: "i agreed to check in my bag at the gate when they asked for volunteers thinking I would get it at the gate of my destination but after i checked it in in gate attendant informed me that i would get my bag at the baggage claim"
Pros: "Free movies. Clean and modern look to airplane."
Cons: "Could not get wifi to work."
Pros: "Quick boarding, clean plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?"
Pros: "I loved the check-in reminders, up-to-date flight info, and overall friendliness and helpfulness of the attendants."
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "On time service &no damaged luggage!"
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "For once the food was good"

Cons: "Huge delay on my flight and most other flights from LaGuardia that day, lack of information on reasons for the delays ."
Cons: "Weather delay"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "So I originally had the free seat 11A. The app offered me what looked like a bulkhead from the seat map on the app at seat 10A for additional $19. I feel for it. No bulkhead, no extra room, nothing, waste of $19"
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "Even though we couldn't reserve our seats we where able to call and change our seats to be together. (Mom dad and 2 toddlers)"
Pros: "Video screens at each seat!!! Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew very friendly. Plane was clean, boarding very organized but I would suggest boarding from the back forward. This would eliminate blocked aisles."
Pros: "Friendly, hard working flight crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Not necessarily their fault, but they rarely communicated why or what to expect. Despite signing up for SMS notifications, I'd find out from Kayak more than I did from Delta."
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "All went well"
Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."

Pros: "The airline crew was amazing. The airport staff went above and beyond to help my mother through the airport."
Cons: "Old plane. No WiFi. Movie options were limited."
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "WestJet app to watch movies and tv not available. Only old screens in back of seats."
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: "Very entertaining flight crew. One attendant cracked jokes sang happy birthday announced wedding party . Never boring very friendly"
Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
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."
Cons: "Il serait bien d'avertir plus à l'avance les passagers au sujet de l'application nécessaire pour l'entertainement ou permettre de l télécharger via le wifi de westjet"
Pros: "Overall everything"
Cons: "It was freezing cold, and blankets now cost $4.00! So I spent the whole red eye shivering, even in my sweater! I could feel the cold air hitting me the whole flight. The boarding was confusing, with no organized lines or anything. Some of the announcements were too quiet to hear."
Pros: "The crew and staff were great on the plane. Could use more staff at the checked bags area but overall good experience"
Cons: "More agents at the check in desk"
Pros: "Westjet staff are consistently *way* friendlier than Air Canada"
Cons: "-Inbound flight arrived late, our flight departed even later. Not the staff's fault that two separate parties had ID/security issues, but I've seen staff at other airports walk along the line and review ID before boarding starts and it prevents those issues from delaying the flight. -Short flight = crappy snacks. Nacho sticks or dry coffee cookies, both pretty unpalatable."
Pros: "The staff with West Jet are extremely helpful and friendly. I wish the American carriers would take lessons from them."
Pros: "WestJet staff and crew fantastic"
Pros: "Attendants made the flight very enjoyable I hope you honour them for their amazing service."
Pros: "Luggage came fast. Car rental was great."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."
Cons: "The long wait to get my baggage."
Pros: "Staff was kind as usual. Some channels didn't work so they gave us complimentary movies."
Cons: "The flight ran out of all sandwichsd and croissants before we were served. I think that was poor planning. The rest was all not healthy food, so we had nothing to eat!! Norma Sukornyk"
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: "Timeliness of the boarding"
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view 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."
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: "Held up at YYZ for "lightning" beyond West Jet control."
Pros: "Flight left on time and staff were polite"
Cons: "PA system could be better"
Pros: "Everything was good Quick easy boarding Friendly air crew Love Westjet!!"

Pros: "Food was good and prompt."
Cons: "Delayed 30 minutes"
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."
Cons: "They didn't let us know ahead of time and there wouldn't be televisions. If you hadn't downloaded the WestJet app you couldn't watch TV. You had to rent a tablet for seven dollars or buy an Internet package to download the app. That's fine just frustrating"
Pros: "Staff were good and flight was uneventful. Movie selection was pretty decent."
Cons: "Paying to be in first row of plane means you get to sit and watch everyone line up for the washroom. They stand in front of you in your space, they jostle you as they stand beside you. There are only cold food choices and they could use some work."
Pros: "Crew did their best."
Cons: "Lost time on a short holiday by the delay and by the lost luggage. Shopping took time and cost me money."
Pros: "My first flight with WestJet. Lots of legroom. Very comfortable."
Pros: "Too many delays."
Cons: "The flight didn't provide free upgrades although the seats were empty for premium class."
Pros: "Good service. Really nice smooth flight."
Pros: "everything ran very smooth . friendly staff."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat not enough space."
Cons: "No snacks even for 1st class."
Pros: "Absolutely positively nothing."
Cons: "Everything literally!! Plane down for maintenance, rebooked four times and not willing to spend 48 hours in an airport due to incompetence. Never flying American Airlines. Will use Delta from now on."
Cons: "seating, food, entertainment, boarding"
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Cons: "The AA app broke"
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."
Pros: "Nice big plane, new technology"
Cons: "When landing in LAX we were unloaded far from anything and loaded into buses and taken to the terminal. It was like a weird sci-fi movie LOL."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "MIA to EZE we got the priority seats and it was worth the extra expense."
Cons: "Honoring paid reservations. Our flight was cancelled and rescheduled 4 times within the last few days. Communication. No one emailed me or called me to give me options or to even tell me they were kicking me out"
Pros: "Quick flight with no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "No delay Ability to connect wireless headphones"
Pros: "Flying out around bad weather; lucky we got out in time. Pilot did a reasonable job keeping passengers up to speed on what was happening. Flight attendants were friendly and respectful. CRJ-900 leather seats are more comfortable than your average economy seat."
Cons: "In flight wifi didn't work the whole trip. Plane was a sauna getting in and on the ramp, air conditioning wasn't working on the ground. Boarding took FOREVER with some less than competent wheelchair agents (I think)."
Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They didn't tell us it was delayed until 2 hours before the flight, by which time we were already at the airport. They first delayed it 1 1/2 hours and then another 30 minutes every half hour. The airline/crew never even acknowledged the delay or apologized for it."
Pros: "Great entertainment and crew."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. Sure, I could’ve paid extra to have more legroom, but the flight was already expensive enough. Please spread the seats back out a bit and charge us all the same price."
Cons: "More seat room side to side"
Cons: "The place to rest the head. Would be great if it had that part that you can bend to hold your head."
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Cons: "If we were able to have made the flight"
Cons: "My A/A flight, which was scheduled to get in after midnight, was delayed by over an hour with multiple gate changes."
Pros: "Newer plane, wifi worked well, coffee good, not sure if it was on time, but it didn't matter to me. Friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "waiting on runwat for 30 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Grabbed me a blanket. Did not mind the small plane."
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Pros: "The econ plus/premium econ seats were pretty comfy! I wish I had used miles to book first class, as this plane had a dope 1st cabin."
Cons: "Well, pretty much everything but the actual seats. The service was...well, you can't really call it service. Gate staff lied about the status of the plane, updating the boarding time to 10 minutes and then announcing that the plane was still in the hangar. Passengers would have been much happier to hear the truth of a 2h delay so that we could get food/drink. Instead we had 2h worth of promises that the plane was leaving in 10 mins. No effort was made at being nice--no free snacks or whatever would be nice to make people feel cared for. But what's worse was the flight attendants. I don't even feel like getting into it--just suffice to say these are people who should not be working in the service industry. I saw them being rude to a number of people and it made an already bad experience (with the 2h delay) that much worse. It's not that hard to be polite to people. AA should do more to hire caring, kind staff who create happy vibes even through stressful times."
Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."
Pros: "I like the fact that you could watch movies to make the time go by more quickly"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. The isles are narrow and every time the gentleman across the isle got up to stretch his backside was in my face. The crew would come down the isle with the cart and about take my arm off."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. Poor communication with passengers during the process."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after being delayed 3 times"
Cons: "No free wifi"
Pros: "Very comfy and much to entertain you with"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "Went smoothly"
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: "we left on time and landed early. staff was friendly and kind."
Cons: "Seats are too small!!!"
Cons: "It was delayed because of late or no show flight attendants. Thankfully two women who just got done offered to do the flight, so our flight wasn't cancelled."
Pros: "Friendly people, seemingly short flight, as I slept part of the way. A lot quicker than driving from upstate New York."
Cons: "Again, hard to hear announcements, and I was unaware that non-alcoholic beverages were complimentary. Ride was a little rough, awakening me numerous times"
Pros: "Left an hour late, but it was the airport's fault, not the airline's. Arrived very close to the original arrival time."
Cons: "I'm a bit confused by the airline's identity crisis. It was an Avianca flight, not an American Airlines flight."
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."
Pros: "They were able to arrange for a seat for my daughter who was technically a lap child. The crew were courteous and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Pros: "our flight were on time. Staff was very helpful, I walk with aid of a cane."
Cons: "Not good movie available"
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."
Cons: "Read my review of my denver to dallas amd youll understand.."
Cons: "Far too crowded"
Pros: "The flight was a normal flight."
Cons: "Even though I know it happens, but the plane was delayed 45 minutes, which made me miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "You provided a room"
Cons: "It seems you could have given me some extra miles or a free flight for all rhe hassles ov missing flights both going to Toronto and the return trip as well as missing my luggage for two days on the return!!!!!"
Cons: "WiFi connection and thereby any information and entertainment did not work. Long wait for luggage."
Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"
Pros: "Extra legroom but I paid for that"
Cons: "Not getting the meal I prepaid for and the curtain of business class constantly hitting me it was not good."
Cons: "Took an hour to de-ice. The snow was forecasted. I understand it's the airport operations, not airline, but there should be a better way."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight overall. That being said, I don’t mean nd turbulence, the air pockets really get to me. Great service though"
Pros: "The flights are fine, on time."
Pros: "Great service- friendly patient helpful, pilots that kept passengers updated and very reassuring and confident sounding. KAYAK got me perfect seats!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t spectacular, and being limited to credit card purchasing is always a problem for many travellers. Pre-purchasing options are a great option except for last minute wishes."
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."
Pros: "Crew are very nice and approachable. No complain about their service. And flight is on time."
Cons: "Rouge legroom has gotten to the point of being dismal. The seats are thin and uncomfortable - don't even try reclining though, or you'll be in the face of the person behind you. I buy flight passes which are good on Air Canada as well but Air Canada has taken away all the non- Rouge flights and I am left with no choice. On a 5pm flight out of Toronto, all the hot food choices were gone by the time they were 8 rows into food and beverage service. I'm seriously thinking of moving my loyalty status to West Jet. If only they had flight passes."
Cons: "Another long delay with Westjet"
Pros: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time as expected. Very good selection of in-flight movies."
Cons: "Interior of aircraft was pretty cramped, but that's to be expected."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight attendants were pleasent."

Pros: "Comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "Baggage fees and no snacks."
Pros: "We loved watching the movie "Keanu" together on the rented iPad. The soundtrack was hard to hear on the earbuds though."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Cons: "It was too hot, very warm and could not get the temperature down. Everyone was sweating it was bad."
Cons: "I missed the flight"
Cons: "No breakfast offered for a four hour flight"
Pros: "The crew was inviting, helpful, and very kind."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. No WIFI on the plane (which was, admittedly disclosed upon ticket purchase, so it was no fault of air canada). Chairs were very uncomfortable and the individual in front of me reclined fully for the entire trip."
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"
Cons: "Both my flights (there and back) were delayed, my luggage was lost after I was asked to volunteer to check it in and on the delay (YYC to YUL), I wasn't even given a food voucher after being made to wait 8h in the airport. This was AFTER the crew promised they would hold the other flights (also operated by AC)"
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to every single person that asked for anything on the flight. Even someone asking for a simple glass of water was given attitude. I booked my seats over the phone and they were not the seats they told me they were. Aweful service"
Pros: "The way back there was nobody beside us. Nice to have extra room."
Cons: "On the way back there was only one person in business class. Nobody got bumped up"
Cons: "My flight and itinerary was cancelled due to the booking staff i planned my travel arrangements for to Mexico. They cancelled the round trip flights i had departing from vancouver to mexico and back so i never was able to use this flight to Vancouver and now will just have a credit there until used. can provide a better rating once i am able to use the flight."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "The loading was better organized then in the past, so smoother; not as chaotic."
Cons: "No amenities offered other than a free thimble of something to drink. I'm waiting for them to charge for breathable air."
Pros: "Flight was on time. The landing was smooth, not bumpy."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours !"
Pros: "It was on-time, left enough time to reach connections and my bag arrived."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed boarding in NYC but it wasn't a long delay and we left on time."
Pros: "Air Canada front desk people were wonderful and helpful."
Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "The plane was very old and delayed for too long. Way overpriced air fares."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Cons: "Some staff were very personable and some were the opposite."
Cons: "Staff needed assistance in folding stroller - whereas this has never been a concern on porter. - stroller was thrown on the floor at landing and retrieval."
Cons: "Slow and stupid some of passages"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."
Cons: "Lack of sleep"
Pros: "the crew members were very helpful.friendly and accomodating."
Cons: "no real concerns.If anything being a 3 and half hour flights snacks could have been served"
Pros: "On time, good service and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "Food options limited and quality very poor."
Cons: "The crew stayed at the back of the plane and we could clearly hear them talking about things other than work. Meanwhile they could have been providing a bit more service to the passengers."
Cons: "Bumpy descent"
Cons: "$800 to fly to Florida from YYZ and then paying for baggage and food on top? Horrendous! Booked well in advance so not even paying a "last minute premium"."
Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."
Cons: "Crew not overly friendly"
Cons: "Overbooked the plane and tried to get me to leave. No food. No drinks. No good"
Cons: "The luggage requirements are ridiculous - my bag was 5 pounds over and I was asked to be $100. The cost for an overweight bag should be the same as a an extra bag ...."
Pros: "I finally got home! What was supposed to be a 4-5 hour flight took over 12 hours."
Cons: "United Airlines sucks. If you can avoid United Airlines you should. They might seem like a better price but what they don’t tell you is they are going to burn your time and waste your money. They are not accountability for delays or non - delivery of service. Their customer service mantra"
Pros: "Crew was amazing seat are good from Denver to Cincinnati But from Edmonton to Denver seat were tight"
Cons: "two hours late. No info. No recompense. It was a very long day."
Cons: "Choices of TV selection"
Cons: "My friend and I were forced to check our carry on bags at the gate and the airline lost my friends bag for four days."
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent cabin service, arrival in Ft. Myers was early"
Cons: "I was not on this flight because my previous United flight was late! So I am having to sit all from 8:00 am till 8:25 pm in the airport. I am not happy."
Pros: "My flight on another airline cancelled -- I rescheduled on a later flight with United but arrived at the airport in time to catch an earlier flight that had been delayed. United allowed me to move to the earlier flight without any penalties in recognition of all that was going on. Thanks."
Cons: "Delayed an hour on mechanical problems..but free movies and TV provided to help ease pain"
Cons: "Baggage did not make the connecting flight. Their baggage service is poor. Didn’t receive my 2 bags until 10:30pm the next day."
Pros: "No delay, not crowded"
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was close to that of a freezer. Very cold for some unusual reason. Otherwise a great flight -- on time departure and arrival -"
Pros: "Liked excellent food and beverage service by courteous and attentive crew. Flight was listed as serving only snacks so was surprised to be served an excellent Asian Noodle and Steak Salad and continuous beverage service. Flight attendant responded immediately when I had trouble with my headphone cable and brought me a replacement cable. Entertainment option with wide choice of live television was fine for flight and helped make flight go by fast. This was our first use of first class service, and we would consider it again. I had unsatisfactory experience with United last year and saw great improvement."

Pros: "Flight was stuck on tarmac in Denver for 45 minutes. Missed connection Air hostess was very friendly throughout"
Cons: "Delay before boarding. Boarded and delayed take off. Emergency landing in Baltimore. Talk of busses. Reboarded. Drove the runway in circles. Panic attack. Unboarded followed by the rest of the plane and we then boarded 3 buses that got us to Jersey in 4 hours. I reviewed this once. HORRIBLE."

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "Plane was over crowded.the seats are narrow and uncomfortable. Person behind me was constantly kicking the back. I was in the window seat and the guy next to me had a large athletic physique and was over-flowing into my personal space. On top of that he had a severe case of toxic flatulence."

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!"
