Pros: "All okay except baggage check in and baggage claim."
Cons: "Delta Baggage handler accused my g/f of lying about active military status. Refused to accept her military ID. She is a first responder in a unit that responds to search and rescue and terrorist attacks and was returning from three days of maneuvers. Baggage lost. Still not here forty hours later."

Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times . If I was the manger I would fire the whole staff and If I was above the manager I would fire them as well as I’m. Sure this is not an isolated occasion."

Cons: "In flight entertainment did not work at all during the 2.5 hour flight. Was very disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing... no movie, no food, just awful."
Cons: "I decided to cash in some miles for first class, what a waste. Never book first class on delta flying a short route, it’s just not worth the money. The flight attendant had the ATL attitude, if you know what I mean."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"
Pros: "Delta agents rerouted me in face of weather problems in Southeast so as to allow me to make my LAX to Sydney flight. Well done."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. I lucked out on transpacific leg with an exit row seat, everything else tight. Movie choices kinda limited and very US."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"

Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "Crew seemed nice. Plane itself was normal. Pilots seemed to know what they were doing."
Cons: "The things I didn't like were out of Delta's control: Some baby who screamed bloody murder whenever the captain said anything (so we couldn't hear the announcement about being stuck on the tarmac). Also, we got stuck on the tarmac for about 45 minutes. Obviously, it could have been much worse. But you know how it is when you just want to get home. And that baby."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. Loved that we all had our own TV's with free movies available. And loved that we were all served free food."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Seats were moved and I didn't sit with my traveling companion"
Pros: "There was a great selection of available movies"
Cons: "Again, crew was rude at the check-in counter"
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "New plane, nice comfort seat"
Cons: "The snack selection...pretzels or cookies!"
Pros: "Quick flight; helpful and friendly staff"
Pros: "Good experience overall. Pleasant staff. Movie features were wonderful and helped pass the time."
Pros: "Uncomfortable seat. Super old aircraft. Wasn’t even given water"
Cons: "How about a sip of water atleast?"
Cons: "A delay of 28hrs is never positive. I haven’t been able to get my United points either since I was rerouted to SFO. When claiming them the system says that I never boarded the flight to EWR and completely ignore the YYZ - SFO flight. Mediocre overall."
Cons: "Gate not ready on arrival."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Working on flight schedule to be more precise! Delayed!"
Pros: "The crew were so helpful and nice"
Cons: "Only if teleportation exists"
Cons: "Crowded planes."
Cons: "At YYZ @ the wheel chair entrance, I visibly required wheel chair assistance. I approached the United INFO COUNTER and requested wheel chair assistance. She advised me to get into a long Q and after check in they will get me a wheel. chair. TSA is no greater help for your air line."
Cons: "4 different flight delays in chicago"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Plane was small and uncomfortable. The plane was again delayed. 4 flights with United. ALL 4 delayed."
Pros: "Quick and easy flight, on and off the plane quickly."

Pros: "comfortable and on time"
Pros: "Fantastic service. Much obliged for everything"
Cons: "Horribly rude. She even cursed at another passenger."
Pros: "Toronto is a good place to Fly out. Much cheaper rates than small USA city like Rochester. Booked 1st class Tickets for about the same price coach. They have Customs to USA very well thought out."
Cons: "Very minor delay boarding, made up time in the air. Gate crew reassured that all connecting flights will be fine."
Pros: "I didn't like nothing"
Cons: "United needs to training your employees"
Pros: "Crews were great"
Cons: "Seat cushions were old and hard to sit on in excess of an hour. The don't look worn out, but certainly no one is asking. Not very comfortable for a four hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was curteous and capable"
Cons: "The screens on the back of seats that used to play movies now play advertisements and ask you to pay for in-flight entertainment. The off button did not turn the screen off, resulting in a constant eyesore for the entire trip"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "2 Delays"
Pros: "The service staff was very friendly when they told me they were out of every food item I wanted."
Cons: "Lack of variety in snacks, foods and purchases on the plane."
Pros: "Flight was cold and they did not have blankets"
Cons: "I don't fully understand why, but I was unable to get my boarding pass for my flight to Chicago from Toronto until I arrived in the Toronto airport. Toronto airport sequesters off international arrivals, so in an ideal world, I would have been able to go through security directly to into the U.S. terminal, bypassing Canada customs. However, the United desk that I needed to get my boarding pass from located just before security was unmanned. The very kind Air Canada attendant called for a representative multiple times, but after 45 minutes of waiting no one ever arrived to print my boarding pass for me. The Air Canada employee then gave up on any United staff showing up and suggested I try going through Canadian customs and checking in at the same departure desk travelers first entering the airport would go through and make sure to let them know how long I was waiting. The United employee I spoke with told me that I was impatient and should have continued waiting because now she didn't know what would happen with my checked bag and that I may well need to wait 2 hours more for that to get sorted out. I was rather surprised by her overly negative response and apparent threat. If I was irate or yelling that might have been warranted, but frankly, I was so tired from the international travel I didn't have the energy to fight with her. Regardless, I wish I had been more impatient, it was far easier to go through customs twice than I expected. I would have preferred to spend more time in the lounge inside the terminal than to stand by the United desk waiting for someone to arrive to print my boarding pass. At any rate, Canadian+US customs have it together; when I went through U.S. customs to get into the terminal they had the photo of my checked bag right there."
Pros: "My complaint with United is twofold: extremely poor customer service and airport experience. First, the plane was delayed Then cancelled took customer service 50 minuets to rebooked on a new flight to sfo instead Sjc which is far away from my house & I paid for CAB!!"
Pros: "The crew on this flight were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "They delayed my flight, so now I get back home really late. Thanks, United."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding was easy."
Cons: "I wasn't informed when I booked that the flight was operated by Air Canda's budget variant, rouge, and not Air Canda as was listed on Kayak. I had no option to select seats, and when we boarded I was seated on the last row by the galley with no reclining seats and the florescent lights were on nearly the whole time on a 10 hour overnight flight. There are no seat back TVs and the free streaming service went down repeatedly just like the AC outlet at our seats (there are only two of these for three people). I booked this trip nearly a year in advance, and I am extremely disappointed that I wasn't informed that I was flying a budget airline on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "I like that we landed."
Cons: "This box seems too small to fit it all in. It's United - underwhelmed as usual."
Pros: "united over book. i got boarding pass but no seat number. United charge me $400. I want me money back."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of preparedness before taking off from each stop."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and uncomfortable. And we never pushed pack on time for all my flights"
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Fantastic minus the fact this flight was canceled without any notification."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that my flight was cancelled until I tried to check in online a few hours before. Then I was booked on a terrible next day combination. I had to book with another carrier for $400. I missed out on time and money."
Cons: "3+ hour delay"
Pros: "Staff were helpful, the flight took off on time and the trip was smooth."
Cons: "No complaints on any front."
Cons: "Didn't hold our seats! Made it with ten minutes to spare, but sold our tickets when they could of called and said three passengers are on their way over!!!! Instead made a little more money!!!!"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in first class."
Cons: "Paid for upgrade to first class for smoother flight with more leg room. Flight attendant whose job is to server first class customers avoided me entire flight looking the other way whenever she was passing, making it impossible to ask for anything. I ended up asking different flight attendant for glass of water."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "We had to go to the special help counter to get our seat assignments changed so my wife and I could fly together. Then they attempted to charge us baggage fees because you didn't notify them that we used our United Explorer card. This also required me working with the gate agent to get priority boarding"
Pros: "Sitting in the flight on the Tarmac for over 2 hours is a terrible experience"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was OK. I would not write home and brag to my friends about it ..."
Cons: "There is good business between Toronto and Halifax; why must you use the smallest aircraft you can find? Use a larger aircraft and fly it fewer times per day."
Pros: "Our flight attendant Lei was absolutely fantastic on this flight. After having to run nearly a mile through the Denver airport to catch the connection to Helena after a delay in DSM, I was very warmly greeted by Lei. She regularly checked to see how I was doing through the flight and made sure I was well hydrated. She was a highlight of the entire trip!"
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "We had to walk almost halfway to Newark just to get to the flight. It was outside on the Tarmac at the very very very end of the terminal, I've never seen anything like it before. We also left a travel folder in the seat back pocket containing important documents and a sealed envelope of 1000$ USD. We immediately called to retrieve it and at first were told to file a complaint online, no matter how many times we tried to tell them that time was of the essence in this situation. We also begged the united airlines personnel to speak with a manager and he wouldn't put one on the phone. In the end all they could tell us is that the folder "wasn't there""
Pros: "excellent aircraft, roomy, comfortable and clean. the flight attendants were very attentive but not pushy"
Cons: "very full flight ... tourist season?"
