Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nice service."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Don’t upgrade to first class on this flight. One beverage. No food. Not worth it atall"
Cons: "Don’t upgrade to first class on this flight. One beverage. No food. Not worth it atall"
Pros: "Fun, friendly crew on a boring routine short haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down."
Pros: "I’m very good"
Cons: "Should have been home by midnight but ended up landing at 1:45 am."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Cons: "Crew was not the usual happy Westjet staff.Grumpy flight attendants.I don't think any of them ever cracked a smile for the entire flight."
Cons: "The wifi is paid.. no TVs"
Cons: "flights was delayed but for understandable reason. Medical emergency. Can't rate food. None reminded."
Cons: "So there was a problem with the aircraft. Some cargo nett8ng was broken so they had to move the baggage from the rear to the front hold. The pilot can on to inform us of what was happening, assuring us that our baggage would arrive with the flight. B7t not surprisingly they lied and about 30 ppl didn't get their luggage. It never made it on the flight and won't be until the following morning. So I have no clothes. No jacket for sub zero temperatures. It would great if they could at least tell us that there will be a problem. Not lie I'm not impressed. I'll do my best not to fly westjet again."
Cons: "There was not enough room for my carryon for some reason and so I had to sit with my knees up and feet on my bag. Not the worst but there should be enough carry on space for everyone."
Cons: "delay of 1 hr."
Pros: "Loved the chopped leaf options for food. Had a tasty wrap and glass of wine :)"
Cons: "I wish the staff were more helpful regarding my infant carrier & stroller as I was travelling solo with a 3 month old & struggled to manage things. Eventually another passenger assisted."
Pros: "The staff were nice enough on the plane"
Cons: "They said we were pre boarding so we went and stood in line with our 2 year old. Finally after 15 minutes they actually started letting the line through when they could have just waited 15 minutes to even announce the pre-boarding line. Then we boarded the plane and it was late and another 30 minutes waiting to fly. There was no TVs.. and whatever, we brought our iPad We got to Edmonton and our car seat was quite damaged. West jet couldn’t give us anywhere near the car seat we have and not one that fits in my car."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Seat cushion was horrible and I paid for plus."
Pros: "Newer plane so more leg room. Left on time."
Cons: "No inseat entertainment."

Cons: "Have iPhone/iPad stands you advertise in your brochure!"
Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "All good! No complaints!"
Cons: "I didn't like having to go outside in the cold to board the plane and to deplane."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "I traveled from Vancouver to Edmonton today on WS 320 and one of my luggage was delayed. I had to wait through many phone call queues to get in contact with an agent and none of them were very useful. I was informed that my baggage would arrive in Edmonton at 5pm and be contacted to arrange delivery options but I had not heard anything from them and it is already past 8pm. I had to stay at home to wait for the phone call which resulted me in canceling my evening plans. The luggage contains frozen home made goods and various food items I brought back from my recent trip to Taiwan. With the food not being in a freezer for over 12 hours at this point they've likely all gone bad. I am extremely displeased with the bagging service especially when I had PAID to get my bags checked. I was told that packing food in checked bags comes with a risk and is a game but everything in life is a risk and I find that excuse from an agent very unacceptable. I am also very upset that WestJet does not offer compensation for food damages because the foods in my luggage are definitely worth over $200 and some are not obtainable in Canada."
Pros: "It was overall ok , but over all disappointing that west jest became such a budget airline."
Cons: "I’m disappointed that west jet became such a budget airline, it used to be my favourite. Now there’s no monitors, you got to use up your own power from devices. I prefer to save my battery when travelling."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Only got home at 1.30am."
Cons: "They had a gate delay making 30+ people miss their connection. Refused accomodations. Now we are stuck at the airport with no nearby hotels available and no transport for our final destination."
Pros: "The courtesy of the flight crew, and above all, the smooth flight conducted by the Captain.T"
Cons: "There were no specific "hiccups" or negativity pertaining to the flight."
Cons: "The long delay, 2 kids crying continuous, no place to smoke, no one explained to me that I had to pick up my luggage in Toronto! So now my suitcase is delayed! I was told that it would go straight through to destination. I will never use Delta again! And I will not fly through Detroit or Toronto again!!!"
Pros: "Really great attendants. Friendly and humorous."
Cons: "They took the tablets pretty early it felt. 45 minutes before we landed. But other than that, great experience!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent, very professional, friendly, and helpful. The flight itself was smooth, and on time."
Cons: "My flight was not actually booked going to Edmonton and I had to rebook it at the airport to go home. Coming back to Fort McMurray my flight was also cancelled without telling me and I had to buy another ticket."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight left & arrived on time."
Cons: "Flight delayed, crew didn't remove garbage before landing."
Pros: "Regular seating on this West Jet flight was great, very comfortable with ample room."
Pros: "It's a short flight. Crew was good."
Pros: "Liked the price and small airport in Abbotsford. No complaints."
Pros: "I like direct flights. The foot room is quite adequate for normal sized people like ourselves. Staff were very friendly. Check in is fast through self serve when a person travels with carry-on luggage only."
Cons: "Our seat choices were extremely limited because we used self check-in and wanted adjacent seats. We were seated at the back of the plane for both flights even though the planes were only 65% or so full. Negotiating the aisles to the back of the plane is difficult for a 94 year old even if not handicapped or using ambulatory assistance. We only had carry-on luggage and did not wish to stand in line for a ticket agent. We felt slighted that young able-bodied single persons had closer seating. If we need to lie and say an elderly person is not ambulatory just to be given fair treatment, please indicate this in booking instructions."
Cons: "The lady, Serena, constantly pumped my shoulder which I recently had surgery on. Every time she walked by I would move over, squishing the person beside me, so she wouldn't hit me but yet she went out of her way to and even hit my chair several times. She was also extremely rude, I asked for water and she told me no she also wouldn't take my garbage when she had the garbage bag in her hand. I highly recommend not taking west jet."
Cons: "Delays and missed connections."
Pros: "Staff friendly, flight on time"
Cons: "in flight service consisted of crackers and water. No entertainment other than westjet magazine."
Pros: "To seats on the 767 are comfortable and more spacious than the 757."

Cons: "No WestJet Connect Seats were a little squished with no ability to lift the armrest"
Pros: "The boarding gate person from Westjet was excellent in the way he dealt with my missed flight..........kudos to him"
Cons: "The security staff were not prepared to deal with the sudden increase in volume of passengers. Since there were around 300 people ahead of me I knew I was probably not going to make my flight. I felt as though I wanted to ask everyone there if they minded me going to the front of the line as I was probably going to miss the flight, but felt too intimidated. Of course my onboard bag was flagged for further inspection so when I asked the security agent that was being absolutely riduculas with the inspectioin of the mans belongings ahead of me if she could take a look at mine as I was probably going to miss my flight she just gave me this evil look and said im already looking at this mans things. (she didnt need to state the obvious but maybe a little common sense and tact in helping to resolve customers problems would go a lot further than projecting her power trip. Not impressed at all."
Pros: "overall great - had seats in plus so that was awesome"
Cons: "flight delayed"
Cons: "Missed connection due to delays."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Two cookies"
Pros: "I was just a little bit shocked because there were nothing to eat included.. I didn’t know that that kind of flight didn’t include anything.. But despite of that it was ok.."
Cons: "Air Canada needs to step up their game and get better in seat technology."
Cons: "Over 11/2 hour late with no explanation."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept kicking out & had to start over. Gave up"
Pros: "The extra leg room that you have to pay for."
Cons: "Insufficient padding in the “premium” seats. No decent meal selections. The wrap that I had was primarily a tasteless piece of flat bread."
Pros: "Boarding easy & fast"
Cons: "Plane lat, extremely hot, & only 1 explanation with no updates"
Pros: "I liked that they didn't make a fuss when boarding that I wasn't in the section but needed to board earlier due to a knee injury."
Cons: "That they didn't really stop long enough for me to ask for a snack. They asked the other side but as I was on the window seat, I couldn't seem to get their attention."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived a bit early, excellent trip"
Cons: "Really doesn't fit into the "didn't like" category but my boarding pass said Zone 6, however there was no Zone 6 called nor signage for it. Even the person checking our boarding passes was surprised. Just a comment really!"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing so far, thanks."
Cons: "Very long delay not fair to passengers"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled in toronto Lester B Pearson Airport due to a snow storm and we were stuck in the airport for almost 24 hours and we werent even offered a hotel for the night. So we decided to book a hotel for the night through Kayak and paid over $200. Went to the hotel and were told there were no more rooms available until the next day. We called kayak customer support and they wouldn't refund our money!! Horrible experience never again! Never flying Air Canada again !!"
Pros: "Food was great"
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Buying wine was a good idea. It's a good cure for frustrations."
Cons: "I had trouble checking in online AND printing boarding pass at kiosk. Plane left 45 minutes late. Boarding was chaotic. Headphones did not work with entertainment system. Drink order was incorrect... I just had to pretend I was on crappy public transport for two hours for a one hour journey. I laughed out loud when they announced on flight that Air Canada was voted best North American airline. Riiiiight."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Cons: "I found the crew members more involved in there own personal conversations rather than the guests.... Trying to get there attention was virtually impossible...."
Cons: "Too hot and cramped"
Pros: "The service was fantastic flying over night is never fun but the staff made the plane very comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was very cold"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
Pros: "Onboard service staff were very good."
Cons: "Flight was one and a half hours late leaving."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual (for Air Canada)"
Pros: "Leg room on a wide bodied airplane and movie equipment working well. Stewards were by more than once offering food or refreshment."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Cons: "They should have checked the plane before boarding. When the plane was ready to take off they discovered an issue with the lavatory. we had to sit in the plane for more than an hour to get this fixed."
Cons: "Six hours stuck at an airport with no where to get decent food and ended up sleeping on the floor. There should not be a stop to flights at night time."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized. Seating was cramped. As a short person in a window seat, I could not see ANY of the safety demonstration."
Pros: "Seat was broken, you can not recline seat. Flight was full, I was told so you have to sit on same seat. Secondly, there was one kid who keep crying yelling like hell, big time headache. It was about 6 early morning flight came at airport by 3:00am thought will sleep on air. On boarding, only drinks was offered, not even cookies or snacks there."
Cons: "Broken Seat No cookies or nuts, only drinks For kids or infants- airline should give them last seats or offers Air buds."
Cons: "No cookies or pretzels."
Cons: "Flight attendant was awful My seat assignment was the same seat designated to crew and my flight attendant treated badly inspite of the error"
Pros: "Crew members were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We were delayed another hour on the tarmac for refuelling. Seems like they should have delayed boarding."
Cons: "Air Canada has the worst customer service. Hate flying with them"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times, and then they lost my baggage, when I landed in Chicago, no bag. A person from United Airlines called me at 7:00 AM the next morning and said that they had my bag. He directed it to GRB that day. Thanks to him I got my bag back!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave Cancun at 6:00 p.m. and arrive in Montreal at 11:00 p.m. It did not leave until after 8:00 p.m. And I could not get any information from an agent. I actually emailed my friend in Canada and she was able to get information online. We did not arrive in Montreal until after 1:00 a.m. The plane was incredibly cramped, our knees were right up against the forward seat. There was no compensation for being late...a snack or free drink, etc."
Cons: "They lost my bag which was full of important clothing I needed for interviews this week."
Pros: "Liked the smile in the faces of the crew as they served the snacks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour"
Cons: "It wascancelled and rebooked for next day. Then the person whi gave me the ticket told me no hotel booked other one told me just take a blanket and sleep in the airport!!!!!! Is that a joke!!!!"
Pros: "Linda the Air Canada check in Agent at the Priority desk in Calgary was the best Check in Agent I have ever dealt with in over 20 years of business travel. I was with my family and she even made a special effort with my two Granddaughters that they are still talking about today. She is the reason Air Canada still has ALL of my business every year"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Cons: "I was freezing - I was told the blankets where for medical use. Meanwhile they were giving them away. When we were about to land they gave me a blanket. Horrible."
Cons: "Fast boarding"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. I liked the spaciousness of the seats. I did not feel like I was sitting on the person beside me we were both comfortable"
Cons: "Constant back and forth of the carts. The smell of the food while the cart is parked beside you is rough to if you are not feeling well. Felt like too much selling going on. I don't' need to be asked so many times about food and drink."
Pros: "Everything was ok ! I love late departures"
Cons: "From Cancun to Mtl, we had to wait 2 hours before boarding!"
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride. Small plane size did allow for quick retrieval of bags at final destination."
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and pleasant . The crew is friendly and acoomodating. the fligt back to Edmonton was on time. Boarding was smooth and fast."
Cons: "Flight to Vancouver was delayed for half an hour. It's a good thing I didn't have a connecting flight to catch."
Pros: "Was told there was a delay of 15-30 mins at check in. Flight was actually delayed 1.5 hrs. Would have been nice if they explained why ahead of time."
Cons: "More food options. Almost wasn't able to buy food. Was told they ran out by the time they reached us in the back of the plane. Luckily they had one left. It was luke warm at best and my husband and I split it."
Pros: "Loved the staff. Was a great afternoon flight. Best flight I have been on thus far."
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived earlier than scheduled time. Smooth overall"
Cons: "Three crying babies all in a row for nearly entire trip."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The fact that the airline charges for small food items"
Pros: "Quick boarding, friendly, well done"
Pros: "This compaby sucks. They cancelled the fight wuthout notifyng us and we have to rent a car because they wanted us to flght the next day a 5 PM without paying fir us the hotel. It was ridicoulous ghat we were 2:30 hoyrs away from our final destination and they dif not reimbourse us for renting a car. Never again book s flight in United"
Pros: "Call me immediately"
Cons: "Call me immediately"
Cons: "my language arrived in 24 hours delay"
Cons: "When experiencing turbulence, the flight attendant came over the speaker and requested everyone to be seated with their seat belts fastened. A few moments later she came back on reprimanding that "THIS IS NOT A JOKE YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN WITH YOUR SEAT BELTS FASTENED" which was still ok. The third announcement was the one I felt was highly inappropriate when she then stated "I DONT KNOW IF YOUVE BEEN WATCHING THE NEWS LATELY, BUT THERE IS NO WARNING WHEN THE TURBULANCE IS GOING TO GET WORSE" frankly I have been watching the news lately and there is plane CRASHES on the news. My husband is afraid of flying and that announcement was terrifying, even for someone who is not afraid to fly. There has to be some sort of protocol of verbage to use when the turbulance is getting bad, because to insinuate the plane could crash to get your point across is crossing the line. I have been on planes where the turbulance is a lot worse and felt this was really out of line."
Pros: "On-time departure from Cancun but early arrival in Denver (relatively mild jet stream?). Otherwise, fairly typical United cattle carrier."
Pros: "Had to wait 2 hours on the plane because a port was not available."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Absolutely NO leg space."
Pros: "Not much goog thing to say!"
Cons: "Our plain landed in San Diego airport instead of Las Angeles airport. We were inside the plain from 8:30 PM to After midnight. By the time we passed the immigration and custom it become 1:45 AM and when we arrived in Jhon Wayne airport by a van it become 3:30 AM."
Pros: "Friendly crew. On time"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding front to back. Boarding should be back to front."
Pros: "Fast boarding and departure"
Cons: "Had an aisle seat so was constantly getting bumped"
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Poor timeliness of our return flight from IAH to ABA"
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seats that were spacious enough. I like that on these flights they still at least give u one drink and a little snack. We got in early on both flights that's always a plus"
Cons: "I would like some kind of entertainment to make the time go by faster. What happened to having a movie play on a flight? That is about my only compaint."
Pros: "Friendly crew and easy boarding."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment due to the fact I didn't have the United Airways app."
Pros: "Free movie due to wifi being unavailable"
Cons: "The crew seemed less than cheerful"
Pros: "The seats were upgraded to take up more space so economy wasn't too bad."
Cons: "Everything costs money now. All the screens were worthless since it cost money to watch anything (including the flight map and how long until we reached our destination.) The Internet was useless unless you really wanted to pay $3 to surf the Internet or get your emails. Forget streaming video since they wanted you to absolutely pay the $8 more for DirectTV."
Pros: "Flight attendant, Annelle, was very attentive and friendly throughout the flight. The other flight attendants were as well"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Horrible flight:///"
Pros: "Nice airplane"

Pros: "The fly was good and the captain as well."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess and I got the worst seat."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and caring"
Cons: "MY SEAT WAS CHANGED WITHOUT EVEN ASKING ME The flight was 3 hrs delayed There was crying babies on board so I couldn't even get some rest"
Cons: "This flight did not exist. The flight was operated by united and was cancelled a long time ago. Air Canada did not inform us of the flight cancellation and did not take any responsibility for it. United did but inform us of the flight cancellation and blamed air Canada. I fully blame kayak for our ruined vacation and will never use this service again in my life."
Cons: "on the way there we had TV. On the way back we had to take a different route (which added more time for the trip)and we did have a TV on the head rest or even movie showing. Also one snack that has three crackers isn't worth handing out. It would be nice to be able to enjoy the snack."
Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flight. we arrived faster than expected."
Cons: "there was an open seat next to my boyfriend and i, we thought we would have a little extra space on the flight since the seat wasn't taken. but the flight attended moves a passenger next to us without notifying us prior or even asking if it's okay, or ask that we scoot down so that we can at least have the window seat. would've been nice to have the window to lean on.. we felt like she could have said something to us. she was very rude."
Pros: "Boarded on time. Pleasant flight staff. Arrived early without a delay in getting a gate or luggage. Pleasant flight staff, good service."
Pros: "United planes are up to date and clean. Service excellent. All personnel very nice."
Pros: "Great service!!"
Pros: "I liked the sincerely friendly staff; they made it a pleasant experience."
Cons: "I would ha've liked free TV; ,I feel I've paid for it in cost of ticket."
Cons: "I waiting from 9:00 morning until tomorrow 8:00. 24 hours for cancelled this's so crazy and long time and I still waiting for another flight"
Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "no food unless you bought it no wifi or entertainment at all unless you bought it, or had the united app on your device (which, you can't download on plane). overhead compartments smaller than usual, as was under seat area"
Cons: "They should offer free movies and this silly bags of nuts; can someone be more creative?"
Pros: "The evening before our return to US from our vacation in Mexico, my husband lost his passport. The Cancun airport crew, including Paz and Raphael, worked with US consulate (on a day they are typically closed) to get permission for him to board the return flight. Otherwise, we would have had to stay two more days ( until monday) to go to the consulate. THANK YOU, United!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and flight. I arrived early again to my destination. No problems with my flight into Edmonton."
Cons: "Waited for 3 hours for the flight to finally be cancelled, then waited another hour for a van to arrive. It's only a 2-1/2 hr drive to begin with! This is the 2nd time of 4 I've booked this flight that it's been cancelled. Doubt I'll ever book again."
Pros: "Great free movies in first class."
Cons: "The first class crew was not very warm or welcoming. The outgoing flight from IAD set the bar high -- they could've spent less time gossiping and more time remembering my drink order."
Pros: "Free entertainment because of the bother"
Cons: "Having our flight delayed. The pilots were still in Houston when we boarded the plane in Cancun. Sat on the plane 2.5 hours before they cancelled due to staff being over the limit of hours they could work. Surely this could have been realized before they boarded us! Very sloppy management of us on the plane, getting off the plane with staff saying "we don't know what's going on""
Pros: "The pilot flew the plane well and kept us informed about the route."
Cons: "Our luggage was rummaged through and jewelry was missing from inside the checked luggage!!!!!! Not to mention the fees for traveling with a regular piece of luggage that was well within the weight limits. SOME of the crew was rude (the guy was polite). They sell everything meals, entertainment, etc on board it is already pricey to fly and I guess it includes nothing but your right to sit and breathe. . The plane was cramped and there was trash by my seat probably from a previous flight. Also, I did not get to sit by my travel companion."
Cons: "It was a bit delayed"
Pros: "I had a complaint of overly noisy passengers in front of me as did others. Finally when spoken to about it by a femal stewardess they sat sticky quoted down."
Cons: "When I boarded and got to my seat o found it dirty. The steward had me ubvelcro the cushion so he could wash it off but their was a lot of food debrie from previous passengers. I didn't feel like I was sitting in a cleaned space for the duration of the flight"
Pros: "It is apparent that United is working to improve their customer service and efficiency - factors which have deterred me from using United in the past. FROM SFO TO CANCUN: First of all, the check-in procedure is very quick these days. At SFO, there is a curb-side check in, which also allows customers to pay the baggage fee and drop off the bag right there. I've used this in the past during busy airport hours. This time, I flew overnight, so I used the self-check kiosks in front of the check-in counters to check-in, pay the baggage fee, and print my ticket. I used the check-in line to check in my suitcase. The line was so minimal and moved so quickly, (as did security), I was at the gate in 30 min (from the SFO BART station). I rarely fly United because the check-in lines used to be very long and slow. In the past, I've missed more than one flight due to extraordinarily long check-in lines. I'm glad to see on the last 3 flights I've taken with United, this has changed for the better. FROM CANCUN TO SFO: I was happy to see that Cancún also has kiosks for self-check-in. It wouldn't allow me to check my bag, though, and I had to wait in a slow line to do so. Still, a much improved check-in compared to past experiences. *I should note: the slow line had 8 people in it and took 25 minutes. With many people, United Cancun lines have been known to take over 2 hrs. This was a Thursday afternoon on January 8. I'm not sure what the line would have looked like the Saturday before . . . BOTH FLIGHTS: The stewardesses did come by several times (as opposed to once on other airlines), offering water, which was appreciated. Finally, United tends to offer multiple flights at cheaper prices and more convenient times than other airlines. However, I still prefer flying other airlines - despite the increased cost - for the reasons below."
Cons: "United planes are older, outdated, and very small. The video system on the back of the headrest in front of me did not work on either flight (there or back), and no snack of any kind was offered on the afternoon 4.5 hr flight back from Cancun to SFO. A mini bag of salted peanuts were offered on the overnight flight from SFO to Cancun. But these were the least of my concerns. Deplaning was slow and long when we arrived at Cancun. We waited with the plane door closed, and the air off, for about 10 minutes. It was a hot, humid, uncomfortable wait. Deplaning took a long time due to the small, cramped seats (see description below). On the return flight to SFO, we waited on the runway in line with other planes. While this is not the fault of United, it did make passengers more anxious to deplane. Opening the plane doors took a long time, and exiting the plane even longer because people were slow getting out of their seats and recovering their bags from the storage bins. I saw people struggling to crab-walk out to the isle on "dead legs" (the floor space between seats is so minimal, no one can stand up straight, and must grab the seat in front of him/her to shuffle out to the isle - a difficult task for the elderly, or when carrying purses as big as carry-ons, sleeping toddlers, or babies). The seats were extraordinarily hard and small on both flights. I fit in the seat just fine, but had no leg space, and could not recline. In effect, I was forced to fly the entire time in an upright position, sitting on a rock-hard seat that felt like thin plastic-leather stretched over metal bars. I'm a young 40yr old traveler of normal size (5'4") and health (135 lbs), yet it was extremely uncomfortable sitting on that seat with no way to redistribute weight. I had pain in my legs for over 24 hrs after flying United from Cancun to SFO. I flew 6 round trips to Miami and Mexico City last year from SFO and never had this happen. I've flown to Peru and Miami direct - and much more comfortably - on other airlines. I will not choose a direct flight over 2 hrs on United again, and will continue to choose other airlines whenever possible."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding process, had to pay to check my only bag I brought, no complimentary snack, no options of movies or channels to watch. For such a long fligjt some kind of options is appreciated"
Pros: "Great customer service and spacious seats"
Cons: "The check in fees & maybe the staff could seem a little bit more excited when we Landed in Cancun."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and no incidents. The plane was clean and the flight attendants courtesy at the higher level."
Cons: "Even if I had the app downloaded I couldn't watch anything...kind a boring. Hope that they can fix that for the future."
