Cons: "The first flight was late because the personnel was forgotten at their hotel. My luggage was lost’"
Pros: "Great flight. No problems."
Pros: "A very enjoyable flight."
Pros: "yes every thing was good.."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. My mother needed a wheelchair on and off each time. And the staff was there to help her . That was a blessing"
Cons: "Not much. I know seating is limited on space, so that’s the only thing . Wish there was more space."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was the first time in 37 years that I have flown so i had a little motion sickness but that has nothing to do with your crew or airline. This experience was very good thank you"
Cons: "1. For the flight to not have been cancelled. 2. For a replacement flight within 12 hours. 3. Hotel vouchers and meal vouchers for those that could not get on a flight for longer than 24 hours post original flight! Disgusting the way passengers have been treated"
Pros: "Unreal service by all WJ employees. Great service getting my 87 year old mom to and from everything."
Pros: "Very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "My inflight entertainment system didn’t work."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early"
Cons: "Cabin was way too warm. Also not as much space on 737-700 as 737-800"
Cons: "We landed in Phoenix and spent over an hour on the runway, when we did finally get a gate it didn’t work. The delays caused me to miss my ground transportation."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Otherwise fine."
Pros: "Check in was quick and easy. Boarding and flight was right on time!"
Pros: "Safety and on time."
Cons: "Grumpy cabin crew."
Cons: "My tv was not working, landing was not smooth staff was rude specially Edward"
Pros: "What a great experience flying west jet!! The crew was so accommodating. I got sick on the plane and there were so many people jumping to help me make sure I was confortable. I’ve flown all airlines and will be flying West Jet again."
Pros: "Overall an easy experience. Cheap!"
Cons: "West jet has got to figure out a better way to board the plane- the "zone" model is a nightmare."
Pros: "Always a pleasure flying with Westjet! We even arrived 15 minutes early"
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: "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: "Boarding attendant demanded to see my passport for a domestic flight even though I had produced the government-issued photo ID required."
Pros: "I like everything"
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: "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..."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment and food"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "We didn’t like having to take the red eye to meet our Costa Rica connection. We"
Pros: "Nice, professional crew."
Cons: "I have a dog in the plane with me. None of my flights offered to make me board first. It harder to move through the aisle by myself with my pup in her carrier and my personal effect . Some nice passengers helped me when they saw I was struggling but O feel that is the crew's job."
Pros: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"
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: "Quick and direct. Great staff"
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."
Pros: "Quick boarding on departure and exit at arrival."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Pros: "The WestJet staff, from gate check in to the flight crew, were excellent."
Cons: "The fact that people with pets board first is ridiculous enough to keep me from choosing WJ as my first option. They boarded before seniors and children. What has happened to our crazy world that pets are more important than people."
Pros: "Overall flight and connections were good. Board process was smooth and flight departed and arrived on time. Watch for baggage delays when arriving in Fort McMurray as they can sometimes be excessive. No entertainment provided on the smaller planes but most people have some form of entertainment with them."
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: "On time, clean, friendly staff."
Cons: "Crew missed me with the drink cart."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "All Good"
Cons: "After landing in Edmonton could of been on next flight to Kelowna ended up waiting 1 1/2 for second flight to Kelown"
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"
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: "WestJet staff and crew fantastic"
Pros: "Seamless boarding"
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
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"
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!!!!"
Allowed last minute early boarding due to medical issue. Food? Really? Good movies
Flight attendant reminded passengers of mask policy
Fast boarding and on time.
Pros: "At 6’9” tall, it was decent"
Cons: "Not on the flight"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Pros: "Everything was on time considering the heavy Holidays travels."
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Pros: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"
Pros: "No amazing crew, just average. The should airline should have follow through on a specific request, but the airline's computer wipes out such things."
Cons: "Airlines should listen to the requests of the passengers."
Pros: "All was ok accept they charge 32dollar for bag."
Cons: "Travel with free bag."
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "The booking process. Went through a third party (ka$@k) and at the last minute was transferred to a cheap aggregator I had never heard of. Needless to say customer service was a joke. Plain fraud."
Pros: "Fast boarding, flight relatively smooth, got to my destination pretty quickly as well."
Cons: "Typical tight seating, aircraft showing age."
Cons: "The wifi signup process not seemless with Android."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the flight attendant was very helpful with all the questions I had, thanks for the wonderful first time flying."
Cons: "Nothing give a 10/10"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Cons: "Make seat available for two of us together not every one in a deferent row"
Pros: "Even thou flight was delayed we arrive at a decent time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours due mechanical issue Missed connecting flight Waited in line for 2 hours for a hotel comp. had to pay 20$ to get to hotel because there was no shuttle Still stuck in Dallas. Never made it to Sam fran. Extremely disappointed I expect compensation"
Cons: "The drink service came a little late in the flight... but that is a suggestion more than a complaint."
Pros: "Crew on and off plans were helpful and nice."
Cons: "Delayed for hours for a short one hour flight with multiple gate switches."
Cons: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"
Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "the small jets are so uncomfortable."
Cons: "KTerrible coffee. Tasted stale"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."
Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Cons: "Boarding at Terminal 3 gate A8 was slow and a single line makes for a lengthy process."
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Pros: "good price and a good route"
Cons: "This turned out to be a 'code share' flight operated by American Airlines. As such, neither Qantas nor American Airlines would allow me to buy premium seats so we could have extra leg room. They said the 'code share' blocks seat sales! Be ware Also found out that American Airlines does not serve meals on flights from Toronto to LAX. I was told they only serve meals on "international flights" but that I could buy a sandwich or snack. Unfortunately they only had 4 sandwiches on board , which sold within the first 2 rows of the plane!"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "issues FA ran out of Mexican immigration forms."
Pros: "Good assortment of entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed so long we missed our connecting fligh. Then we’re left with no hotel room as everything was booked in Miami for the holiday weekend. It was a mess"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"
Cons: "The seats are hard although spacious for a 3 set row."
Pros: "At least the gate agent was pleasant when she told us she couldn't help us and gave us information to get rebooked."
Cons: "That our bags were late coming off the plane and instead of being able to put them on the connection belt we had to take them up to recheck and rwtag them."
Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."
Pros: "Overall flight was great. Crew, pilot, flight attendants, boarding, everyone and everything was great. Drinks and snacks were offered."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. 45 mins flight from San Antonio to Dallas had seatback entertainment. But 2hr flight from Dallas to Cozumel had no seatback entertainment. Go figure."
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero Entertainment. Flight delayed around 30 minutes, which gave me a heartburn as we had to catch the next flight. No priority plus lounge near this gate in Toronto"
Pros: "Great crew. Very pleasant & friendly."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and flight was excellent"
Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."
Cons: "A better snack option would be appreciated"
Pros: "Entertainment, service"
Cons: "30 minutes of delay at least."
Pros: "Gate crew were very good at keeping us apprised of the status of the inbound plane and our estimate departure time. The flight crew were all very helpful and engaging. Not easy on a packed flight where too many people brought too many carry-on bags."
Cons: "I am a true-blue Air Canada customer but their checked baggage fees has created a disaster when it comes to boarding flights and getting planes in the air on-time. Many people had too many carry-on bags or very large carry-on bags so the time it took to board was ridiculous. Better rules need to be enforced with carry on (not that I blame people for trying, considering the increase in checked baggage fees) so that flights can be boarded more quickly and planes can take off on time."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "The lunch was average at best. Comedy show selections were terrible (in my opinion). I miss the days of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development."
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."
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: "Friendly attendants, excellent foods"
Cons: "For 2 1/2 hours the baby was kicking the back of my seat. I Thurber around a few times, said something once the the so called parents were not willing to help. I mentioned it to the flight attendednt but being a full flight there were no seat. Changes available. The parents even switched seats but only with each other, they kept the baby behind me. I can only hope they have a baby kicking their seat in the future"
Pros: "The flights are fine, on time."
Pros: "the staff very helpful , respectful, didn't feel rush they had their attention on helping me .Very grateful Thank you all"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything"
Cons: "I had problems rebooking , they made multiply mistakes costing ME over 300 dollars cad ... very upset , flight was cancelled, they didn’t pay for my hotel .. worst experience.. flying with west jet next time"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Air Canada was a disaster on our vacation. Delays, re bookings, cancellations. Every thing was told to us as an excuse from the weather, flight attendant was running late, not staffed enough, need supplies on the plane, someone died, planes needing de-icing, planes too small, planes overbooked... you name it they said it! New York to Toronto, Toronto to Edmonton and return. Not one single flight was on time! We got put in a Hotel - only nice part of the trip - got Vouchers for $15 each - such a low amount!!! Didn't get our luggage with our clothes and amenities to use at the hotel - had to sleep in our plane clothes. Spend extra money we didn't have... it was awful! We will be staying away from Air Canada for awhile!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to ATC"
Cons: "Narrow seats in business, insufficient recline, no extra pillows"
Pros: "No surprises."
Pros: "Crew are very nice and approachable. No complain about their service. And flight is on time."
Pros: "The flight was good, on time, and comfortable. Crew was polite and informative."
Cons: "The sound did not work on my screen, even after trying 3 different sets of headphones."
Pros: "Two full drink services was nice"
Cons: "USB outlet didn't work, and my seat didn't have a normal AC outlet"
Pros: "Paid for the "upgraded" seat only to be told we had to be in the back of the plane. Moving back all rows had one person and one chair open, so we had to sit apart. Useless crew as an elder couple asked to sit together and were told to check with passengers. Oh and the flight was delayed 3 times."
Pros: "Upgraded to Plus after our flight was delayed and we had to go back home for a night... Live 45 minutes from the airport and had to have a friend drop us off and come back to get us. Friendly staff for the most part. Some seemed a little stressed out, but its understandable as the job is probably stressful. Especially before christmas."
Cons: "Slow boarding, crowded plane when boarding- rushed to get us on the flight."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "The Edmonton lounge is not sufficient. Minimal food. It is supposed to be above and beyond, but not worth trying to get points for."
Pros: "The trip to Edmonton was very smooth and right on time. Everything was very good.....including the baby behind us. I will fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "I didn't like the change in gate at Edmonton to Vancouver. No one told us until boarding time. Even tho there was ample time to get there since it was the next door gate, I was in a wheelchair and if it had been any further, it could've been a disaster. We arrived right on time. I'd go Air Canada again."
Pros: "Free business class"
Cons: "Food and no entrainment available"
Pros: "was a really great trip- I took the dreamliner last week and that was an amazing treat"
Cons: "Westjet gives pretzels or cookies complementary- I was surprised Air Canada didn't do the same Was a little squishy but all planes are!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight attendants were pleasent."
Pros: "In general, everything is fine. Boarding was good"
Cons: "Lack of food options for people with celiac disease. No ingredients on the dip in carrots and celery dip. Was told it was gluten free, but had a very bad reaction to it."
Cons: "Flight was delays from anotjer air company i had to paid 160$ to get on the next one.."
Pros: "Comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "Baggage fees and no snacks."
Cons: "It was too hot, very warm and could not get the temperature down. Everyone was sweating it was bad."
Pros: "Good selection of free movies and shows on board. Some great and helpful flight attendants."
Cons: "The staff at check in were not overly helpful. We were running late and possibly going to miss our flight and they did not seem willing to help us out at all."
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: "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)"
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"
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: "Landed alive in vancouver"
Cons: "Second time in two months that they delayed my flight by at least 3 hours."
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: "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."
5+ hour mechanical delay, no compensation or apology. Finally got on a different flight standby. Man was vaping on plane before departure. He was reprimanded twice but was incoherent and they kept him on the plane passed out in the emergency exit row. Not a safe decision.
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"
Pros: "Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew was very grumpy and not accommodating to families (ours and others). No wifi or outlets."
Cons: "They nickle and dime you for carry on bags as well as both flights was really bumpy."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness is below average"
Cons: "Cabin service is average"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."
Pros: "Truly don't remember his name but there was one young man on the plane that was very helpful highly recommend he's only been with the airline about 8 months and what is professional in every way thank you"
Cons: "Delayed flights leading to incredibly tight connection times, staff inconsistent with messaging re the source of the delay, zero compassion for customers, offering $700-$1,400 to get off the plane when you charge $200 to change a flight 2 weeks in advance is especially galling! Will not fly with United again whenever there is a viable alternative to my destination."
Pros: "Well, I got there."
Cons: "Purchased economy plus bundle. United employee closed gate in my face at ORD. United Club toilets were filthy and the worst of my problems was the ridiculous selection of teas. (Toilets outside of United Club much cleaner.) I had an economy plus seat, but this did not allow me to board early. So I boarded late and there was no seat in front of me. So I could not put my carry on in front of me. I asked if I could put my bag in top, but attendant told me that I had to ask the first class person in front of me for a favor and thank them for the favor. I did. But this was one of the more disgusting experiences that I have had on an airplane and I paid an extra 100 USD for the privilege of it."
Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"
Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."
Pros: "Plane was delayed 87 minutes because the plane had maintenance issues that the air and did not organize and plan better. For their error, I missed my client and got fired."
Cons: "The airline not getting me on the Dayton-Newark then Newark-Rochester flight so I could get to my destination on time. The agent at the airport was not helping or listening. Now I miss my client loss a lot of money for the day and I got fired."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative and shared when we were approaching turbulence when he was navigating around Hurricane Harvey"
Pros: "I didnt care for anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. There were no chargers at any seat in Coach."
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Pros: "They accommodated my 6 hour layover by reducing it to 2!! Got me home 4hrs earlier. So grateful."
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Pros: "We've arrived just on time!! really liked the service"
Cons: "The united employee starting with the man in the ticket area by the gate. He was VERY rude and unprofessional. He was talking to me like was a dumb person. He was explaining to me that I could only take one bag on the plane and it was how he explained it to me that I did not like. United needs to work on getting rid of people like him, they are agitators."
Pros: "The staff gave out free snacks and were friendly"
Cons: "Too loud and the delay was an inconvenience"
Pros: "The seats were somewhat comfortable."
Cons: "Almost nothing was included with the ticket purchase."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours And no one knew what was going on"
Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Pros: "The customers service excellent"
Cons: "I'm 5'3 and could not even lean forward to rest my head on the table in front of me because there wasn't enough room. I shouldn't have to pay an additional 95 dollars to have what was previously considered a normal seat with normal leg room, especially after loosing 6 hours of my life due to United flight delays during the course of my trip."
Pros: "Take off and landing were on time Excellent landing in spite of buffeting winds"
Cons: "In flight snack was the type you buy to feed the animals at the zoo. SEATS Send them to Guantanamo. Then those prisoners will talk for sure"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was great. No complaints for the air and the ground team at all"
Cons: "WiFi and TV it's way too expensive No free options to entertain yourself. At least give us a USB port on the seat to access my mobile device. Very narrow seats"
Cons: "The flight never happened. My flight was delayed 3 times before being cancelled and united could not book me on another flight until the following day. They would not put me in a hotel, pay for another flight or even get me a taxi to a hotel I could stay at over night. I had to book a last minute flight through another airline at my own expense"
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice. Made up a little time on the flight and landing was smooth."
Cons: "This is my second delayed flight on united / lufthansa in a few months (2 for 4). Horrible leg room and person in front of me had seat all of the way back so she was on my lap and I had to ask her to move up. Food just so so - carbs with carbs (pasta with cous cous). There was very little information about the flight delay (when would we be boarding, etc.)."
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Cons: "They mis-tagged my bag and still haven't found it and have not been helpful or informative when I call to check the status"
Cons: "Comfortable and affordable!"
Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Cons: "Cancellation policy is just abusive !!"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was absolutely amazing. They were helpful, they were very kind, and very pleasant. Probably the best flight crew I've ever had. Despite originally being annoyed that I wasn't allowed to pick/change my seat, I somehow miraculously got an economy plus seat so I had what felt like a first-class amount of space."
Cons: "Again, the flight was delayed. Despite originally being told that we were trying to get out ahead of storms so we wanted to get going quickly, we ended up boarding and then sitting there for probably an hour and a half. The pilot/copilot were great at letting us know what was going on, but the fact that both the first and second leg of my journey were delayed was excrutiately annoying. Having already been traveling for over 8 hours, the last thing I wanted to do was be even later and extend the flight even longer, obviously. The entertainment also was not available due to some problem in the circuit for the entirety of sitting there waiting to taking off and the first 15 minutes of the trip. Again, the attendants did everything they could and were very attentive, it was just frustrating to not really be sure that entertainment was going to be available for the 9 hour flight you just sat down for. Thereafter the entertainment was great. The food was, again, pretty mediocre compared to other transatlantic flights I've taken. The lasagna was not very good tasting at all. The sandwich they brought near the end of the flight was tasty though. Another plus was full sized cans of juice as opposed to a tiny glass. Honestly once this flight got off the ground it was good. However the combination of the delays, plus my terrible previous flight (which was the one directly operated by Lufthansa, the second flight was farmed out to United) just made the whole journey pretty awful, and probably the worst of my life. On my flight from Munich to Cairo, three weeks ago, Lufthansa left my bag in Munich despite the fact that I had an 8 hour layover - which you'd think would be more than enough to put a bag on a plane. They were very quick about delivering my bag once it arrived, but that previous experience with Lufthansa just served to bring down my opinion of the entire airline. Honesty, I had been told by friends that Lufthansa was a pretty good airline, that didn't show at all. There's a pretty big chance I'll never willingly fly Lufthansa again if there's even a remotely comparable option (which there almost always is)."
Cons: "Our family of four was scattered in four different seats. The food did not include a salad! Otherwise, it was all fine."
Pros: "I actually upgraded to first class for $79 while sitting in the waiting area. I thought it that was a pretty good deal for the price. Seats were comfortable, and very roomy. I was in first seat and had lots of leg room, even though I'm only 5'3""
Cons: "For first class it was ok although not was I expected"
Cons: "I got stuck with a 2 hours delay flying into Dallas and then another 2 hours delay flying back to Newark. Worst experience ever with United Airlines. Couldn't even get a complimentary of any sort and missed 2 events which was very disappointing."
Pros: "Great flight, on time, lovely staff."
Pros: "The flight was great. Fast. Efficient. State College, PA is a lovely part of the world. Unless you're a wayward young boy but otherwise pretty good."
Cons: "Is a seatback tv too much to ask for?"
Pros: "I liked that 1 out of our four flights had more room & personal tvs."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that out of our four flights three were not too comfortable... & no tvs on three out of four"
Pros: "organized; smoothest landing i have ever felt/ or not felt, could not tell the difference between in the air still and rolling down the landing runway. Awesome Pilot."
Cons: "your computer automatically slams internet buyers into a window seat, very cramped, ... no option provided at time of purchase visible without hunting it down."
Cons: "First, when I got to the booth AFTER checking in, they told me that there isn't any more seats on the flight. The attendant proceeded to tell me "just go to JFK and see what happens" obviously I was furious. United will be lucky if I ever fly on them again"
Cons: "The person next to me was overweight however the armrest was able to be down during the flight making it only slightly uncomfortable."
