Cons: "was unable to catch my flight and I called and the lady on the phone was not helpful and rather rude. Was unwilling to help me figure out a solution to changing my flight plans"
Pros: "I paid for seat. Hainan airlines charged me, but told me was not successful. I spent a lot of time and energy on it."
Cons: "At Xian Xiangyang Airport, I was asked to provid a address. They did not know how which is street name and which is city name. I taught them. They scanned with my green card, however, their system could not recognize green card. I was forced to sign an agreement to take all responsibilities if I can not go abroad."
Cons: "Flight attendant was REALLY SLOW."
Pros: "great crew"
Cons: "3-4 hours flying and you just have cookies ? Coffee ? And the tablets to watch movies for real $30 bucks come on guys"
Cons: "The flights were fine, but I will never fly Alaska to Minneapolis and transfer to Iceland Air again. Transferring from the Main Terminal to the HumphRey Terminal was a huge, grossly unpleasant inconvenience. Fly direct, use a carrier that connects at the Humphrey terminal, but by all means do not connect with Iceland Air using Alaska in Minneapolis."
Pros: "My Flight was on time"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Crew was nice, seemed like a new plane so everything was slick and clean."
Cons: "I wished they had a savory option for snacks (not just cookies but pretzels as well)."
Pros: "Comfortable and service"
Cons: "Nothong"
Pros: "After a few years of being just shy of hitting annual MVP status I finally made it. To mark te occasion, Alaska Airlines bumped me up to first clas...my first real time ever. I truly appreciated the opportunity and continued excellent, and now added customer experience! From the full breakfast, great coffee and roasted, warm nuts...though very tired, I truly appreciated the recognition. Thanks!"
Pros: "Free iMessage/texting is really nice even if I didn't use it. Free phone charging is also nice on the 737-900's! Please don't follow Delta's price model by limiting access to those features to Comfort+ and First Class."
Cons: "Having free GoGo entertainment inflight is an amazing technological feat. I'm being a whiny brat when I say I wish the app/video feed didn't buffer so much. I couldn't tell if the problem was with the app, or WiFi performance."
Pros: "We got lucky. Our next leg turned out to be on the same airplane. So we were already at the gate for the next flight. Another piece of luck was that the airplane was not full, so my wife and I had a row of 3 seats to ourselves."
Pros: "Leg room in premium"
Cons: "No free food or entertainment"
Pros: "Very quick and easy boarding system. And, very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was booked through Alaska Airlines, but facilitated through Sky West. At SFO, Alaska runs out of terminal 2, but Sky West out of the international terminal. I went through security at terminal 2, only to find out that I needed to leave security, get on the tram and return to the international terminal."
Cons: "The food is just terrible and we sat in first class. There was an only one choice and if you're a vegetarian, forget it, you won't be eating. The choice was a chicken salad that had a fishy taste. Your choices are better if you purchase a meal."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for 1.5 hours prior to departure because the plane was too light. This should be something that is determined prior to boarding the plane."

Pros: "How accommodating the whole flight crew was to every individual person."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff, clean plan, excellent service"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment options. Grew was pleasant and helpful. There was leg room!"
Pros: "Free movies!"
Cons: "Not enough time to finish the movie"
Pros: "The plane was modern and comfortable, including the adjustable side wings on the headrests. In flight free wifi and entertainment was a wonderdul way to pass the time. Crew was so friendly. Flights on time and luggage retrieval was very speedy."
Pros: "Same as previous comment from Bend to Seatte"
Pros: "The pilot was the best!! He arrive safely and early to our destination. Big applause to the captain."
Cons: "There was no hot water for tea. There was no charging stations by our seats"

Pros: "Comfortable, great service"
Cons: "No one likes a middle seat, but it happens"
Pros: "Such nice staff!"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour"
Pros: "Got me home safe, in comfort, and affordable."
Cons: "1st class was sold out"
Cons: "Took almost half an hour for bags to START coming. Grandma had to do 3 loops picking me up at airport"
Pros: "Great service friendly! Nice roomy seats. Clean. Great snacks and snack purchase boxes."
Cons: "2 seats, aisle, and two seats was hard with me and 2 kids but liked the space."

Cons: "NOISY, OBNOXIOUS OUT OF CONTROL CHILD IN BACK OF ME"
Cons: "Only thing was we had to wait longer than 20 min for our luggage in mpls which was guarenteed. Will I get $25 gift card for future use. Will use AA again when I get the chance."
Cons: "They changed the departure gate 3 times and I missed my flight to MSP. I had to pay 600usd or a flight 13 hours later, spend the night in the airport and rearrange transport from MSP to my home in Duluth. I wonder if I could get reimbursed for the 600usd due to the irregularities in changing the departure gate so often; it caused me to miss the flight.."
Cons: "One hour delay was terrible"
Pros: "Ample legroom, comfortable seats, flight that reaches the destination early... wonderful for the price range. The team was also flexible to flyers changing seats because the plane was not full! Was very surprised by this level of flexibility and comfort from such an affordable airline!"
Cons: "We flew over lunch had to to get by on just pretzels. Could have used something more substantial."

Great

The constant droning on and on about masks is tiring. STOP!

There was a lady pilot. She helped an older lady get on and off the plane and she helped me with my crabby children get off the plane. It meant the world to me. One of the flight attendants was berating a family in front of me about the 2 year old child’s inability/willingness to wear a mask. I am all for wearing masks, but a little child who doesn’t understand why it’s important to wear a mask and is melting down - is it really that important. I understand the need to follow policy’s.

I loved the hospitality of the crew, they were a great crew. What I didn’t like was how the airport I was going to be in for a layover closed down due to it raining in the area. I missed my connecting flight, and got put on a flight that departed 8 hours from the time I arrived to the airport. I also have no news on where my luggage is.

1/2 late for no reason

Flight attendants were super chill and the flight was comfortable. They provide passengers with lots of bottles of water (two or more even); yay for hydration!

Pros: "The crew was fantastic, and the flight was one of the smoothest I've been on."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "not the cleanest seat/tray table"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Boarding and deplaning was smooth and easy!"
Pros: "Very professional."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "crj900 from BUF-MSP is a wreck. worn out, uncomfortable seats, cold air coming from floor toes were numb for about 20m after flight. Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, lost comfort+ upgrade I paid for. No excuse for pitch in main cabin on 737-900 ER."
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options are great. Relatively comfortable seats by today's standards."
Cons: "Literally any of our flights could have been on time. None were."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Organization of entry gates. Sat in the plane for about 30 min after landing."
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews. Good stuff."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Cons: "Check carefully! Our flights were changed and the first was only ten min difference so didn’t think anything of it but when we went to check in they said we would probably miss our connection. The problem was not the time but they changed GATES were really far apart. Was resolved but kind of a hassl"
Pros: "good service"
Pros: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket. More than willing to be asked to move for family seating, etc. Just feels nicer knowing you have an actual seat."
Pros: "Entertainment on short flights is a nice surprise"
Cons: "Very very late.. I almost lost my replacement of the replacement of my connection. Had to run like hell. The luggage didn't make it. To summarize the day, woke up too early, got to my destination hours late and got the luggage in the middle of the night."
Pros: "The crew were kind and courteous. The seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."
Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"
Pros: "The last time we flew Delta, we were underwhelmed. Our flight was delayed several hours and there was nothing exceptional about it when it did finally leave. That was 5 years ago, and there's been a lot of changes. There I'd now in-flight entertainment, reasonably comfortable seats, and everything was on time."
Cons: "Virtually no food options."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Loved that the pilot or first officer, not sure which, came on the intercom at one point and said they were expecting turbulence ahead so if anyone needed to use the bathroom, right then would be the time to go!! Useful information and much appreciated."
Cons: "Some of the announcements by a female flight attendant were delivered at a very rapid pace and were hard to understand, and my first language is English."
Pros: "Everything was perfect and most of all ON TIME Thank you Delta!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Platinum member. Flying with gold colleague. He was upgraded. I was 1 on the list, wirh 3 openings. Asked gate agent, and she said just take my seat. Asked attendant, she said same. So spent flight in last seat in back next to bathroom, while 2 comfort + seats were empty. Did not feel like a valued customer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frontier canceled the flight. Delta delayed the flight that I rescheduled. One of the worst traveling experiences I have had in a long time. My day started at 3:30am. I’m just now going to my hotel at 12:40 am"
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "I hate the biscuits and water... really? On a 3hrs and 30 minutes flight. You guyz can do better"
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Kayak should know that. I got about 15 message s from you about a flight that was cancelled 24 hrs ago. That is not helpful."
Cons: "The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN."
Pros: "Flight attendants were really kind"
Cons: "We were an hour late to leave so I missed my connecting flight and am currently stuck in Minneapolis for nearly 8 hours now"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Late pickup, then no gate at stopover causing is to miss our flight as we sat on the tarmac. Got on next flight, 5 hours later, the literal last row of the plane right in front of the bathroom, you know, those seats that don't recline? Travelling with a cranky two year old, made pains to select seats for maximum child comfort and it all flew out the window. Arrived at destination and sat, again, waiting for a gate. Signed up for sky miles previously based on good experiences, but this was one lane thing after another. Advice? Don't act like you're doing me a favor when asking people to check bags cause then it's "free"."
Cons: "After waiting patiently through a 3 hour delay we were inbound to Minneapolis. We were set to arrive at 9:45 pm and there were multiple 10 pm connections. Delta flew into the furthest gate away, didn't communicate with the connecting flights to give it 5 more minutes and didn't have transportation waiting to bring us top our connections. After ruining across the entire length of the MSP concourse I arrived at 9:58 only to be told they already left. Worst communication I've ever seen. Delta should be ashamed."
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Pros: "The time traveled to get to my destination! It would not be my choice if I was to fly again."
Cons: "The customer service. The flight attendants needs to take some more training on how to provide a better service to paying customers. The seemed a bit unfriendly!"
Cons: "I showed up 2 hrs before the flight. Was told the flight from Toronto to Minn was delayed 30 minutes and go stand in line to speak to an agent. There were approx 20 in line yet only 2 gate agents at 4:30pm. One of the gate agents kept helping the Premium members and bypassing the standard line. The other agent was in a coma as his average person at counter was 10 min. Finally get to counter and they hand me a boarding pass going via Salt Lake in 30 minutes. But has a 3 hrs layover in SL. I then get to US Custom check for US residents re-entering and the line was a good 30 minute wait. You would think the Delta folks would have accounted for that line. I had to ask everyone in front of them if I could skip in front as the plane was now departing in 10 min. I had to then run on a bum knee and was the last to board. The agent at gate was saying we were calling your name but did they think I could have been stuck in customs? On that short of a window they should have walked me through Customs to make sure I got on a flight they wanted me to take versus my scheduled flight."
Pros: "After 4 delayed and missed flights they did put me in a motel"
Cons: "Trying to make arrangements and being on hold for 30 to 53 minutes several times all while trying to second guess flights. Not being allowed on a flight after being bumped several times because only 1st class seats were available . Sprinting through the airport with all luggage only to be told I couldon't not board even though the flight did not leave for 5 more minutes"
Pros: "Nice selection of in-flight media Ahead of time arrival"
Cons: "MSP baggage service was probably the longest delay I have ever experienced w Delta~40 minutes. (Overshadows the ahead of time arrival). Also, I had an oversize item-ski bag-which for some reason they did not deliver through the designated "oversize baggage" door but instead put out against the wall through a side door well down the terminal from the designated door. I might still be standing there except my traveling companion walked down that way and found it."
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"
Pros: "Good Comfort+ seat, but needs a bit more recline - especially on a 9+ hour flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Glad I have the comfort+ as the other seats have minimal leg room. Bathrooms could use a refresh."
Cons: "Boarding took too long - full plane and double seat booking changed 10 minutes early estimate to 20 minutes late"

Very pleasant.

Check-in was a nightmare. At least half the self-serve kiosks were out of printer paper so were out of service. It was chaos. No one was directing traffic, so you had to hope you were in the right line. We finally got to a kiosk and checked in, and printed one bag tag for checked baggage. We were in line to drop off the checked bag, and the lady working that station just walked away and didn’t come back. After we waited a bit, another person in line went to ask at the nearby counter if the bag check person was coming back, and she wasn’t, so we had to find a new line and wait all over again. Once we got our bag dropped off and our tickets, the rest was easy. The security line went quickly, and the terminal was clean and nice. Our flight was great and the flight crew was excellent. I think if someone had kept up with the kiosk printers, a lot of the check-in headaches and stress would have been solved.

Pros: "Crew was professional and accommodating, everything went smooth and quickly"
Cons: "App continued to crash. Couldnt watch movies."
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "3 hours late flight- customer care very insensitive and unhelpful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Condescending staff, lackadaisical crew, pitiful excuses of why we were delayed."
Cons: "MY LUGGAGE GOT TRANSFERED TO CHICAGO INSTEAD OF MINNEAPOLIS IN WASHINGTON"
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "Very comfortable, affordable, nice staff! On time. Will fly AA again."
Pros: "Smooth Travel! AA is great"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Cons: "The trip is still ongoing 6 hours after it was to have been over and we still have a couple more hours to go. I understand that things happen, but most of the problems today seem to have been preventable. First, our plane in Lihue was delayed for over 3 hours because they could not get a working fuel truck to fill the plane. Three hours? This caused us to miss our connection in LA, although just barely. We had to wait onboard so that we could use the same gate that our outgoing plane was departing from. If we had just been sent to a different gate we. Oils have made our original flight. So, they put us on a flight to Chicago because there were no more flights to Minneapolis. Then, once in Chicago the incoming plane was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes before deplaning. Then after an hour delay we were told the crew was on the ground and we were boarded. Sat in the plane for another hour, then we’re told we were still waiting for crew members that were delayed so we deplaned again. Another 90 minutes past and we got back on the plane and sat for another 45 minutes. We are finally pulling away from the gate. Hallelujah!"
Pros: "The touch down at MSP. Was sitting over the wing and barely felt it."
Cons: "Was told carry on needed to be checked because there wasn't any more overhead room for my 9X14X16. So then I had to dig through it at the gate to remove lithium batteries and it took an additional 20+ minutes at MSP to get to baggage claim/wait/claim bag. There was plenty of room in overhead storage for my bag."
Pros: "Crew; snacks are okay, but could be better."
Cons: "Coffee is always burnt; overhead compartments too small; too little space for legs."
Pros: "Reliable and efficient."
Cons: "It took a while for the luggage to be delivered to the claim area, but it was very late in the day so I guess it is to be expected."
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and provided good service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. Boarding process could be improved. Seems some people board out of sequence and it screws up the process of stowing luggage and getting to your assigned seat. These same people bring in large over sized bags that will not fit in the above compartment or underneath the seat. Charging these individuals for these violations would deter them from engaging in this behavior. You might also want to add to your instructions how to disembark the plane, some individuals think their schedule is more important and rush up the isle in front of others who are trying to get their carry on luggage from the overhead compartment. Losers!!"
Cons: "I find this fairly serious! All people were boarded on the plane In a timely manor. We were then informed that one flight attendant had not made to the flight and we were to wait until the flight attendant arrived. We waited over 20 minutes for the employee to arrive to work rather late. This put out over 200 people for one irresponsible employee. In my business that employee would of been fired unless there was a very serious reason. So a full plane of passengers were inconvienced as well as many people that were helping the passengers what maybe 300 + for one employee! Doesn't make sense!"
Pros: "I found this flight to be very efficient and the crew very professional and friendly. After a previous 15 hour flight I was very tired and this flight was a welcome ending to my journey."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Cons: "The handle for the window shade was torn off"
Pros: "My flight experience with Etihad Airway was fantastic. I will recommend anyone to flight with Etihad. Thank you for your great service Etihad crews. I will flight with you again soon."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Pros: "entertainment system on domestic flight is swesome"
Cons: "boarding took long time"
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "Fast flight"

Pros: "Slept the whole way"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Very helpful to the best of their abilities."
Cons: "To start off with. Next time they change the gates, all passengers should get a email. Maybe an ounce it over loud speaker in airport. So we won't miss our flight. secondly. Our flight was stuck on msp runway for 1 hour n 45 minutes before we were able to pull in to a gate to get off. No open gat"
Pros: "Smooth landing!"
Cons: "Late 30”"
Pros: "Everything but the temperature"
Cons: "Too cold on plane. It's better than too hot, but it seemed like it was all or nothing."
Cons: "Delayed from another flight but this crew tried their best to get us up in the air"
Pros: "I appreciated that the airline put us up in a hotel, gave us vouchers for food and bumped us to first class, however not all of us even got on this plane. My wife is on standby while my daughter and her friend go with me at 6:20 AM, my work de is scheduled for 7:45 flight. We’ll see but I’m not holding my breath."
Cons: "See above..."
Pros: "Our family was able to sit together"
Cons: "The flight left late It arrived late and we sat out away from the gate for 15-20 minutes before getting up to the gate to deplane."
Pros: "Standard, quick domestic flight home. Nothing special."
Cons: "I paid for power, entertainment and dinner and I got none of that. My legs were FAR too long for sitting there. I am a disabled vet, the whole trip was PAINFUL."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was more than half empty and instead of allowing customers to move forward to the “premium” seats, the flight crew keep everyone all bunched up in the back of the plane. It would have been a nice customer service gesture to allow people to move forward. And, hey, maybe next time people would have bought those seats if they could have experienced them. Guess I should have felt lucky to remain on the plane and not get punched in the face..."
Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable"
Pros: "Was clean and nice"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "The next time I'm going to drive to Chicago to save $500.00 or more on my trip to South America or use a different airline."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Cons: "I wish I knew I couldn't bring my carry on with me!!! United is always finding ways to screw the passenger's experience. I have a wedding to go to and needed my small duffle carry on with me and because I got a "basic economy" ticket, this was not possible. Some forewarning of this insanity would have been helpful! Really so annoyed!"
Cons: "That no one told me about the mandatory $25 luggage fee even for a carry-on bag. Very dissatisfied."
Pros: "The plane did not crash. That was the part I liked."
Cons: "No one cares what coach customers think of "their in-flight experience" so im not sure why I'm bothering. I got a cheap ticket and packed a tiny backpack. Was reminded of my lowly state by being made to wait till the last second to board. Last row of plane. 2 inches of leg room. Leave it to United to figure out a way to create a class of customer so low that you envy all the other cattle. MOOOOO!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"
Pros: "Their waffle cookie is the best 'freebie' in the air. I also liked the access to the wifi for entertainment on my own device."
Pros: "I got some unexpected exercise running to three different gates that turned out to be wrong yet UAL sent the entire plane to each gate only to send us back to the initial gate."
Cons: "Apparent lack of planning and coordination on part of UAL when confronted with mechanical problem in initial plane."
Pros: "Didn't crash"
Cons: "Booked two seats at same time and they weren't by one another. Plane was not full so asked ticket counter if they find two seats together but did not want last row because seats don't recline. Clerk said those were only seats together so she she said she'd move us to exit row (still separate middle seats). However, seats were not actually exit row and they did not recline. So we simply got moved to separate middle seats in a different, a row that didn't recline."
Pros: "I survived."
Cons: "Just before takeoff we had to abort and the crew slammed on the brakes. It was entirely frightening. We sat on the runway for a long time after that while the crew did not have clear answers for what was happening or why. Several things happened while we were on that plane that were unnerving for the passengers. So much so that at least one passenger threw up. Very scary. We did end up taking that plane on to our destination two hours later, but it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Cons: "Great"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Prompt, organized boarding. Professional, pleasant staff."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked. My adult son and I had tickets to "see agent" and given seats together. But they'd also assigned his seat a another person, who was already settled. Luckily, there was a seat left, and both arrived at out destination. Their solution was to move him, even tho we were traveling together."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."
Cons: "It was a 3 hr. flight. They gave us no food, just a small bag a snack mix. I asked for tomato juice to drink and I asked if I could keep the can and the flight attendant said NO, because someone else may want tomato juice. UNITED is out on my list of airlines,"
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "We were not seated together and had to pay 84 dollars to get preferred seating together and this was booked 2 mos ago???"
Pros: "Roomy seats. Good leg room."
Cons: "Seat comfort is ok, they do not recline very much. You can only watch movies if you have an app on your phone or tablet."
Cons: "I did not have an assigned seat upon arrival despite buying the ticket several days in advance. I almost was bumped. VERY FRUSTRATING."
Pros: "Very nice that my husband and I were upgraded to first class on this short flight. It was a short flight but we were very comfortable for that time."
Cons: "I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it."
Pros: "I had long waiting time for my flight from ORD and asked at stall if i can get early flight and the person at desk checked the system and get me early flight with no charge in cooperative and helpful manner with smiley gesture ."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I was so happy to find a cheap one way flight at the last minute. Was able to get my son home for the weekend. Otherwise he would hace had to stay in Chicago for the night. Super easy and efficient."
Pros: "The crew was very considerate and nice to all passengers."
Cons: "It took forever to board and people had to move because the plane was unbalanced. That shouldn't happen in 2016."
Pros: "First of all, the crew was amazing. I had just been traveling for about 20 hours and I had a seat towards the back of the economy section. After traveling that long, I was getting antsy to be at my destination, and I asked the gate agent if she could bump me to a row towards the front of economy- thankfully the plane wasn't full, and she was able to! It's the little things like that, that are what make me fly United. Also, the cabin crew on the flight was great! Of course, the economy section of the plane wasn't an ideal amount of space, but come on- it was an hour flight, and they did a good job of trying to spread people out so that the rows weren't packed."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer because the plane was being cleaned. I believe they said the overnight flight got in a little late and they still had to clean the plane. We boarded late, but still got to our destination early. Negative turned into a positive- you can't beat that!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Was given a couple of blankets that I asked for. Everyone was very professional. Very accommodating."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Departure time changed at least six times. Gate and plane were both unbearably cold - passengers were all complaining. Departure gate at EWR was gross, run-down, and did not have working outlets."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, and the in cabin experience went smoothly."
Cons: "It took over half an hour, for the plane to depart from the runway. In addition, the gate was changed three times without overhead announcements from O'Hare."
Pros: "It was my grandson's first plane ride. They let us board early because I was managing two carry on suitcases. The flight was smooth and he loved the apple juice. He learned so much by looking out the window and seeing the ground and the clouds."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. My seat was taken by someone else but crew helped me find another seat. (Which was fine by me). Pilot kept passengers in formed of weather conditions and bumpy ride."
Pros: "The staff on the plane were very good."
Cons: "The flight was oversold which apparently gave the employee at the gate a reason to be rude. Also the plane was freezing. People were pulling out blankets and covering themselves with anything available."
Pros: "Easy flight , no fuss no muss . Great snacks ."
Cons: "More seating area in the airport near the gate , flight itself was great ."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and kind, even with the issues with our departure."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over and over again due to "late crew" and after 2 hours, when we finally did board, we sat on the plane for over an hour before taking off."
Pros: "A good selection of recent movies to watch"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because we didn't have a pilot? They did get a pilot quickly though and the flight was shorter than originally stated so we got there about the same time we were originally expecting."
Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."
Pros: "Newer plane. Very nice staff"
Cons: "Floor around seat was dirty. Lot of exaggerated braking. Suggested a new pilot perhaps?"
Pros: "Flight was very quick and comfortable once we took off."
Cons: "Delay once boarding was finished with a long taxi period. Plane was over-fueled and had to be defueld while we were already seated."
