The flight was delayed for five hours due to airplane issues.
So much fun to be delayed 3.5 hours so you land at 12:12 a.m. CT and then discover there are planes stacked on the tarmac but no open gates. We’ve been sitting in a hot plane for 1:20 and have no estimate when we’ll get a gate. This was poor gate management by American Airlines and DFW. Every AA flight I am on of late has been problematic at best.
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Airplane didn't have any AC and was very old and dirty."
Cons: "There crew was not welcoming nor understanding of the passengers' frustrations caused by the delays. There was no air-conditioning on the flight, no air circulation to speak of. No food was served due to turbulence or so we were told."
Cons: "We stay stuck in PVR"
Cons: "The a/c wasn't working. Flight attendants acted annoyed by the people flying, no connectivity to gogo inflight."
Pros: "The staff was fantastic. Very helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice causing us to miss our layover. The only way they initially could correct the issue was by booking us a flight 5 days later. Finally found a helpful person at the gate after calling American Airlines and getting no help. We lost day of our trip, but it’s better than 5."
Cons: "I haven’t had such a terrible experience with another airline before. Missing out on dinner reservations. Wasting 12+ hours in airports. Spending more money at the food court than ever desired."
Pros: "Easy boarding, flight on time, friendly creew"
Cons: "old plane with seat not confortable for a 3h flight"
Cons: "Get the plane to terminal bridge and not buss the passengers to and from to plane."
Cons: "Coach seats are cramped and little under seat space in window seats. Plus CMH de-icing was a mess (although not AA’s fault)."
Cons: "i wasnt able to select a seat when I checked in. they couldn't give me a better seat before bording and the fact that Im the one approaching then to have a seat selection, no one called my name."
Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."
Pros: "Take offs equaled lands"
Cons: "Dirty and tied plane seat way to tiely spaced. Disinterested crew. I hate stowage"
Pros: "The gate agent in Columbus was in a wonderful mood."
Pros: "Biscuits are awesome"
Cons: "WiFi is a little confusing. App didn’t work."
Cons: "Flight delay at every single step of the way Crew was great though"
Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Pros: "We where late boarding, jet didn’t have fuel, we had delay after delay. This flight is never on time. every time I have taken this flight I am delayed. Also getting into charolette, we always spend at least 20 min on the tarmac"
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up."
Cons: "Flight from Columbus was delayed due to crew member family emergency. AA said I would miss my connection in Charlotte. The only alternate connection was too late to complete the trip. I nearly canceled the trip. I reboarded and made my connection with 10 minutes to spare. Also, my destination (Greenville) was only 90 miles from Charlotte, the connecting airport (unbeknownst to me). AA should have offered the option of driving to my destination."
Cons: "we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!"
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."
Cons: "The delay in Columbus caused me to miss my connection and have to fly into LAX instead of LGB."
Pros: "nice people taking care of us during the flight"
Cons: "in Miami, had to change gate 2 times, from D38 to E9,than to D7."
Cons: "It was advertised that one can see entertainment through WIFi, but from my iPad, i can't connect to this WiFi. I tried several times until I just gave up."
Pros: "Quick short flight efficient, got from A to B for the same comfort for the price I paid so I’m happy"
Pros: "Was a little slow in starting leaving too little time to drink my coffee and I was one of the first to be served."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."
Cons: "I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing."
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment and the seats were old and uncomfortable and it was ridiculously cold"
Cons: "Gate agents need to talk slower then we're clearly… It's ridiculous how some of them talk, they need a communications course it's not that hard 10% slower equals 100% more effective."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Very accommodating"
Cons: "All was good, flight attendants were exceptional"
Cons: "After waiting for the plane to receive some kind of maintenance for hours on end and missing our connecting flight, they finally sent us to another city to catch a different plane to our final destination."
Pros: "Everything was excellent about the flight. I had no issues"
Pros: "Boarded on time. You should let only executive Platinum board after 1st class. The value is diluted when ALL advantage members board at the same time."
Cons: "Boarding. See above."
Pros: "As usual the plane was clean and everybody involved with American was very friendly."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I did not like I wish they gave you peanuts instead of pretzels or chips"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "My girlfriend’s Tv stopped to work in the beginning of the flight."
Cons: "Online check in was not accessible."
Cons: "Being near the back of the plane we missed out on all the food options except for the chicken wrap which was horrible. You ran out of everything else."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Continue not to crash. Thank you."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine but AC could splurge for a gate rather than bussing our to the tarmac"
Cons: "The enertainment system was down for over half the passengers and only returned to spotty functionality two thirds of the way through the flight. I gather after some other passengers disconnected. Clearly the system didn’t have enough bandwidth to support all 350 passengers. and why no wifi?"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite"
Pros: "only The crew inside the airplane and the airoplane"
Cons: "Every one in Lufthansa are so rude expect the crew"
Cons: "Put on Turkish air landed 12 hrs late lggage still missing"
Pros: "My passport wasn’t signed and I couldn’t locate my pen. The agent had a pen in front of him and refused to let me use it. He informed me that his pen is a personal item and that I need to learn a lesson that all travelors should have a pen handy. He proceeded to move me off he line and board additional passangers."
Cons: "My passport wasn’t signed and I couldn’t locate my pen. The agent had a pen in front of him and refused to let me use it. He informed me that his pen is a personal item and that I need to learn a lesson that all travelors should have a pen handy. He proceeded to move me off he line and board additional passangers."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly with this flight. It boarded on time. The crew were all very friendly. I enjoyed the entertainment selections and found a tv show that I had been wanting to see. I managed to watch 2 episodes and look forward to watching more of the same show on my flight back. I ended up having the 2 seats to myself which was great. Extra legroom. I have no complaints at all."
Cons: "Flight was delayed My wife and I got separate seats Screen and audio on the entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "On time Nice crew Smooth flight"
Pros: "Being the first passengers to exit the cabin after a 5 and a half hour flight is definitely a perk, as well as getting one's luggage (a priority tag is attached to them) immediately upon getting to the carousel, an other. Leg room and more space is also great."
Cons: "The only board menu was not exhaustive, considering one pays over $500 USD to move up to business class."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful. When they passed out dinner my husband and I were asleep, we woke up when they were serving drinks (right after). They got us our food. On our flight over however we didn't get options on food since they had run out. The flight crew was nice though."
Cons: "Unbeknownst to either of us the Air Canada Rouge is a low cost carrier international flight. It didn't have a player in the seat, or even old school TV's. You had to use your own device on their WiFi which was SLOW and the sound went out. The seats are small with very little leg room. I'm 5'1 (156cm) and my legs almost touched the seat in front of me. Also the airport was the biggest hinderance of getting to the gate and the airplane. After customs, to get to our gate we were told to wait in another line while they went through nearly every passenger again... And checked bags. Since it was taking so long they would let some go through without checking them. It was strange to say the least. We eventually left the gate late but made up for it in the air."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and tried to make up for a very delayed flight with kindness and attention. They were the saving graces for that flight not being a total disaster."
Cons: "The incoming flight was delayed which pushed our flight back. After we were done boarding, we sat on the tarmac for almost another full hour and weren't really told why the incoming flight was delayed in the first place. My IFE wasn't working so I couldn't even watch a movie or do anything while we were waiting."
Cons: "For business class the accommodation was appalling. The seat would not even recline more than a couple of inches, let alone lay flat which is what one is paying for. The touch screen entertainment did not work. The flight arrived too late to make connections - again. The boarding agent at the gate in Los Angeles was one of the rudest and most arrogant men I have ever encountered. I complained to the plane's Captain about him, as he was going through. All the business class passengers around me were commenting on it. One was even filming his egregious behaviour for Facebook. He alone was enough to put one off Air Canada ."
Pros: "Fast boarding, no delays."
Cons: "I always fly Air Canada but I guess I wasn't aware that Air Canada Rouge was a completely different species. No entertainment at all. When we got on the plane, the sun was shining through the window & floating in the air was a mind-boggling amount of dust, feathers, etc.. flying all around... like the air was completely FILLED with them.. you couldn't get a breath of oxygen. This irritated my respiratory system immensely. They also had children helping out the flight attendants which was cute, until the one girl who had just served water to the entire plane broke out into an awful fever. They were putting ice packs on her head, giving her meds, & eventually she had to get carried through the airport. This was 5 minutes after serving water to an entire plane of passengers. I ended up getting extremely sick & missed almost a week of work. Not sure if this was the cause, but it makes sense. I will make sure 100% to never fly air canada rouge again. For $400 a ticket... doesn't make sense to experience this."
Pros: "Overall good flight in terms of smoothness, safety, timeliness, etc."
Cons: "No enrertsinment without downloading google app for phone or pad. Short announcement about this made shortly before flight and we did not react in time to do it. Thought I would read but overhead lights broken; complained three times before fixed."
Pros: "Decent movies."
Cons: "I separated from my 2 daughters and husband because they did not allow me to pick seats or check in online. I was stuck in the seat immediately in front of the stinky bathroom in a seat that didn't recline, had no hdmi charging port and was pretty much continuously crowded by bathroom-goers. In fact, so many bathroom goers grabbed the seat in front of me that they touched my movie screen about 7-8 times, causing the menu to pop up and interrupt the movie. Otherwise, the food was gross and one of the flight attendants was very grumpy."
Pros: "Service food on time flights"
Cons: "No movie for such a long flight."
Cons: "My flight from NYC to Montreal was delayed 4 hours due to a storm that had passed earlier in the day. That was understandable, however we then sat on the tarmac at the gate for an additional hour because Air Canada's entire computer system suddenly crashed. We finally got to the runway and in the middle of takeoff the pilot slammed on the brakes and aborted the takeoff because he did not reach high enough speed. It was very scary. I was supposed to land in Montreal at 10:20 pm but arrived there at 2:30 am the next morning."
Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."
Pros: "Arrived early at check in counter and was offered to catch an earlier flight"
Cons: "Was not able to use a toddler booster for my daughter"
Pros: "In the airport Chicago to Montreal I met a nice person he made my boarding pass to me. I love the service !!!!!! Said Thank you so much for your time to getting. Dory Clothilde"
Pros: "The crew members were polite and I know they were trying their best. I can't fault anyone individually for their performance."
Cons: "Although no-one specifically ruined the travelling aspect of my trip, being delayed, cancelled out due to weather, missing a whole day of my trip (out of a short 3 day vacation), never getting my baggage, and then damaging my baggage when I did everyday retrieve it, is unacceptable for an airline to get away with. They will certainly be getting a letter of complaint and a request for a refund."
Cons: "Air Canada was one hour late leaving the gate. This in fact was a great improvement as when we left Montreal on Dec.21 they were 4 hours late and in the best of xmas cheer didn't even offer us a free drink. Way to go AC."
Pros: "The fact that there were several vacant seats helped with finding room to stretch out."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "My traveling partner - Giovanni Medina - was given ill properly prepared food. He ended up getting food poisoning. We had a connecting flight in Montreal to Orlando (our final destination and home), he was suffering during the 2 hour lay over with an ill stomach and then had to suffer 3 more hours on a flight home. He was stopped from being able to go to the bathroom before takeoff because they needed him seated, but he immediately started vomiting right before we took off. He then spent the rest of the ride sick, they allowed him to move to the back in order to use the bathroom rather than the vomit bags, but he was not comfortable at all. He spent the rest of the night after landing in the bathroom continuing to vomit. We chose this airline because of the rave reviews of the food, entertainment, and hospitality of the crew. The latter two were certainly true. We definitely wanted to make sure that you knew of situation because this was a seriously uncomfortable situation for him and we would not want this to happen to anyone else. He had the chicken meal and the meat pastry on the flight."
Cons: "Air Canada over booked the flight from toronto to Montreal and approximately 10 pax were surprised - at the gate!!! - that no seat is available on the plane although we booked this flight months in advance. It is a shame. Although we recieved 200 dollar compensation check it does not cover damage has been done for me at this trip because of my late arrival to a very important business meeting. It is really not fare and shame."
Pros: "Going through customs and immigration in Canada before returning to the US is very convenient and saves time after you land."
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."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Boarding was very chaotic and our seats were originally booked together and someone needed up separate. In the end, the crew worked it out for us and we were satisfied."
Cons: "I've flown this airline a few times and the seats are pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew service in the plane was very nice, plane was cold and clean as it should,"
Cons: "Lost a flight because they closed the door 20 min before departure, no calls where made to passengers ... I was delayed by airport security and by the time I made it to the gate it was already dispatched, flight closed doors 10 min after it was scheduled to board, very efficient boarding crew that left 6 passengers on the ground !! Since it was a short flight between Toronto and Montreal they gabe me a seat in the next flight which had a delay in boarding (30 min) and then delayed departure too another 30 min ... All in all i spent almost 5 hours in the airport for a 1h flight"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were very small. I was flying Premium Economy, so it was tolerable, but my daughters were flying economy with very hard seats, very little room, no snacks and no entertainment. It was the Gulag! I can't imagine it being worse for them. On a short domestic flight, it may be tolerable, but for a long international flight across the pond, it was a nightmare! Also, please stop serving those hot pockets as a snack and please stop charging for potato chips and snacks unless you plan to serve a substantial meal! A 400 calorie meal is not going to keep anyone satisfied for 10 hours!"
Cons: "Flight out of Newark delayed so we were going to miss the connection. We were rebooked to fly via London but we lost 6 hours in Rome. Air Canada attendant at Newark said the flight was always delayed and passengers regularly needed to be rebooked. You should recommend air Canada cancels selling this itinerary or bringing the Newark flight forward to de risk any delays"
Pros: "Entertainment system was awesome. Flight was comfortable. Crew very friendly."
Cons: "Checkin staff at airport was not friendly. Airline cannot allocate seats together even though booking was done months in advance. seriously!!!"
Pros: "I think a little more leg room compare to some economy flights."
Cons: "I was very unhappy that I could not sit with my husband both ways when we booked the flight together. And we got middle seats which we hate and requested aisle seats. We were also initially placed extremely far away and I was able to change seats to at least being closer, but not together. There was a couple that was throwing a fit that they weren't sitting together in my husband's aisle. The water they provided came from a pitcher and not a bottle and it tasted nasty. I did ask for hot tea on one of the flights and was told they had nothing hot. My tray table was dirty. Sticky stuff on the buckle of the seatbelt. Used plastic cup by my seat when boarding."
Cons: "When boarding the plane, they called the zones too quickly. Then there was an Air Canada representative giving bad directions to the passengers as to where to get in line. Then she got annoyed and was disrespectful to the passengers as they were trying to get in line. She needed to give better directions or change the way they called the zones. Air Canada knew the flight to Montreal was delayed when we left London. They changed our reservation to Toronto to a flight that we still couldn't connect with because of timing. It would have been easier if they were more realistic with the timing of the flight and booked us on a later flight to Toronto."
Pros: "Must bring your own electronic device"
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was Frigid, even with blanket, 2 pairs of socks my coat & scarf I was freezing!"
Pros: "The airline personnel in Montreal was accommodating when several of us missed our connecting flights, automatically providing a hotel room and food vouchers for each of us."
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because of a miscommunication with the refueling truck in Montreal before the flight came to Bradley. Then, we sat almost another hour on the tarmac at Bradley Airport because the flight plan was not approved. This caused me and several travelers (out of a small flight of approx. 20 people) to miss our connections in Montreal. Miscommunication seems to be normal for AirCanada, at least in Montreal (almost missed my connection on the way home, too). I will not fly again with this airline in the foreseeable future."
Pros: "We missed our connecting flight due to a delay and we were automatically rebooked on the next fight. On an US airline, we would have o stand in line to get that done. We traveled on Rouge, from Venice to Montreal, and it was better than the reviews I had prior. There was an outlet to charge electronic devices and the app was easy to use."
Cons: "The delay was due to getting baggage loaded. 1.5 hours. There is an issue there."
Cons: "Worst flight ever. Had a technical difficulties 3 times in a row. Had to be cancelled and put on the next day and again same thing over and over. So missed all my connections. Cut short my vacation. Will never flight air Canada again."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Horrible smelly crampy cloth seats, awful food, they don't offer complementary wine and beer for international flights like other carriers, no tvs in the headrest. The flight crew works slower then I have ever observed in my over 200 flights. Took them 1hr 40min to serve what they called "dinner", Delta and others knocks it out in 30!!! And don't get thirsty, You'll die of dehydration before you get a drop of water. They treat ice like its gold. 2 cubes for each drink. If u ask for more u get one more cube. Lol. It was just a horrible experience! I will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "Nothing. Worst airline ever. Air Canada's customer service is AWFUL."
Cons: "My sister is still stuck in Paria trying to get to Casablanca because Qir Canada changed her ticket to Royal Air Maroc in the system but failed to pay the ticket!! She's been traveling from Seattle to Casablanca for three days and she's still not here yet! And I'm going into labor very soon!!"
Pros: "Very nice people, seats large enough"
Cons: "impossible to work on my computer, plug without enough power turn off automatically"
Cons: "They charged us 25 dollars for a carry on bag which was unfair. They didn't charge anyone else. When I came back I was not charged. I would like a refund. The people were very rude! I take that bag on trips weekly. I should have not been charged."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. Entertainment choices were varied and generous."
Cons: "o'Hare needs an upgrade."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was excellent and the liquor selection exceeded expectation. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn't give us US customs forms, had to ask, only got one, had to ask again, and then rushed to fill them out and THEN customs threw them out and we had to do everything on the computer. I would think that the crew would be familiar with this process at their home airport and not waste our time. Also, no one could tell us if we would have to go through security again and if we could buy any liquids in Paris duty free to bring home due to the liquid rule and going through security. Just a wildly uninformed airline (asked our crew and other AC officials) they couldn't answer a few simple questions."
Pros: "I got to where I was going."
Cons: "Air Canada acts like a European low fare airline when it is actually just a major domestic carrier that nickels and dimes for everything and charges full cost."
No food in this flight, should have n/a option
Pros: "The staff was helpful"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Customer service was good, I also liked the text updates."
Cons: "I really dislike that the make you check your carry on now. Most airlines let you take your carry on so I’m used to that. It also originally said $25 but at the check in it was $30. Plus I prefer not to check in my bag because it is faster, but since I did I had to stay at the airport an extra hour."
Pros: "Despite a technical problem they got us to Newark on time."
Cons: "If they overbooked the flight, offer flight vouchers AHEAD of us being at the airport."
Pros: "Generally efficient, clean"
Cons: "Crew seemed hurried - when asking if people wanted coffee walked by so quickly I did not have a chance to reply"
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew was very friendly on all legs and provided excellent service. The good was actually good."
Cons: "The seat could have been more comfortable for a long trip but still better than your typical American airlines."
Pros: "Agent at the gate"
Cons: "My seats changed so my son and I were not sitting together. The agent at the gate was wonderful and got us seated together."
Pros: "Pretty good leg room and nice refreshments, but the flight was delayed quite a bit and caused to me to miss my connecting flight, which I was told I had plenty of time to get to."
Cons: "See what I liked*"
Pros: "Great airline crew and staff. Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "My other 3 flights on United were on a larger airplane with plenty of legroom. This one was very cramped. I was stuck in a middle seat and essentially pinned there for 2 hours."
Pros: "Gate agent was also rude when I inquired about changing it. There were clearly open seats but she wanted me to pay to upgrade. The way this company operates boggles my mind."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Air traffic control delay."
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding and unboarding."
Cons: "There is nothing about my flight that I didn't like."
Pros: "Seats are too narrow. Passenger next to me was so big he was sitting on my seat."
Cons: "Seats are too narrow."
Pros: "From Washington to Albania everything was great."
Cons: "The boarding at the first flight from Columbus to Washington was the worst flight I ever had, peoples who worked there were really rude and disrespectful not to only me but to a few passengers especially a lady who worked at the ticket both."
Cons: "Our originally scheduled flight out of CMH was cancelled within minutes of getting through security. We were told to wait for another flight-which was scheduled to depart 3 hours EARLIER, but had yet to depart. 3 hours later THAT flight cancelled, and we were rebooked for a flight the following day. So we were out our first night's accommodations as well as transportation to/from the airport that day. The next day we boarded our scheduled flight, sat on the tarmac for awhile, then went back to the gate and de-planed for some unknown reason. We were then re-booked on a different airline. THAT flight was then delayed, which would have caused us to miss our connection to EDI. The ticket agent worked for an hour to find us a flight to EDI that wasn't going through Newark (delays from hell) or Chicago (weather from hell). She finally put us on a flight with an all-too-brief layover in Amsterdam after a connection in Detriot. At this point we have boarding passes coming out our arses, It's 5pm and I haven't eaten since 9am, and we're STILL not out of our departure city. Our projected arrival time was going to cost us ANOTHER night's accommodation, as well as cause us to miss previously paid for engagements. 2 more delays allowed us to finally land in our destination about 40 hours after our original itinerary, with no apology or effort to amend the situation in any way."
Cons: "service, custumer attn comunication"
Cons: "It was also cancelled on my return flight with no prior notice ! Never again"
Cons: "They were cancell my fly let me sleep in airport never fly to united"
Pros: "The flight was delayed serial times."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times."
Cons: "The small commuter planes used for the trip are not smooth rides at all. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "lots of turbulence but that happens"
Cons: "Lots of delays, not so friendly flight attendants..."
Pros: "Got there on time."
Cons: "Private screening does not work well. Very little kneeroom. No room in seat back pockets to put anything."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent as usual."
Cons: "Trouble getting a seat assigned via the United app."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, bad weather was the day before our flight, not the day of our flight (the day of our flight which was sun). We now got rebooked for wed. That's 3 days we didn't plan to be in Columbus oh. That seems excessive."
Cons: "Surprised at just water and juice as beverage options."
Pros: "We ended up with the exit row seats - awesome, especially for my 6'6" husband."
Cons: "We each had one bag- a backpack for him and an incredibly small roll bag for me. We were told we absolutely had to check the roll bag as space was limited. There were 3 off duty flight attendants sitting next to me and each had 2 large bags. Multiple other people had multiple oversized bags they were allowed to carry on. This infuriates me. I brought one bag, and a smaller than regulation one at that and I had to check it because other people were allowed to bring multiple bags. If you know a flight will be a tight squeeZe, limit people to one bag each."
Pros: "Crew and they kept you well feed"
Cons: "I just could not get comfortable"
Cons: "During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously small and cramped and hard. Didnt realize i was booking a "puddle-jumper" to go cross-country. Also-i wish you'd bring the screens back. Neck was so kinked from being on my own so long."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding procedures by groups. I also was forced to check my carry-on, even though after boarding there was plenty of room in overhead storage. Because I was in group 5, they assumed it would be full. They didn't check or allow me to check."
Cons: "Additional fees for extra space were 1/3 the cost of my flight"
Pros: "Nothing everything was horrible absolute terrible customer service"
Cons: "Didn't offer vouchers or accomodations Classified delay as weather when we were told in Ohio it was a mechicanical I was extremely distraught began crying horribly became extremely dehydrated & went into urgent care once returning to PHX"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "No videos to watch; had to supply own due to short flight."
Cons: "It was late boarding and landing. Our bags were sitting in the rain."
Cons: "First flight was delayed, missed next 2 connecting flights. Next flight home wasn't for 24 hours, so had to pay for my own hotel + another $200 for a rental car to drive 5 hours home. Made it home 1.5 days later. They lost my bag, bag made it home 3 days later. Overall, worst travel experience of my life."
Pros: "Fast puddle jumper from CMH to IAD."
Cons: "United has replaced all gate agents with contractors. It is abundantly clear. No stakes in customer service, these folks are just slightly above automated robots following scripts verbatim with poor skills speaking English."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "The temperature control was ridiculous!!! One minute it was 40 degrees and the next it was 90. People were putting on coats and hats, taking them off and putting them back on the entire flight. It was horrible and there was NOTHING relaxing about this flight bc of it. The crew announced the inflight entertainment and gave directions on how to use it. Thirty minutes later, they informed us it wasn't working. So nothing to distract us from the horrible temps!!! Pull this aircraft out of service and fix the temperature!!!"
Pros: "As pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing negative to note."
Cons: "Told about wi-fi but failed to mention anything except United info carried a charge."
Pros: "Got home early no delays good seats"
Cons: "All my tickets states see attendant for seat so I was worried I didn't have a seat"
Pros: "Window seat. On time. Courtesy of staff."
Cons: "Cramped. Tight fit for such along flight. Squoze in."
Pros: "That kayak sent me an update on which baggage claim rwmeinal to go to. Had it not been for that I wouldn't been walking up and down Dulles to figure out where my bags were. Thank you kayak"
Cons: "We are two active duty members flying to take our son to our parents for us to get ready to go on deployment. When we arrived there the line was almost an hour and a half just to check bags we almost missed our flight. When we got to the counter ans told him we were both military flying on orders and asked to be tsa checked he had no clue what we were talking about so this kind woman helped him do his job, needless to say he was a manager. Once we got out tickets the seat assignment said see agent so we did. He hands us our tickets and we are a plane length apart. Let me mind you we both just left our child for a 8 month deployment overseas. We asked the guy if it was possible to get seats together wouldnt even acknowledge we were speaking to him. So we tried again he held his hand in my face and told me he serviced me and to please step back. Ive been bawling 2 hours straight from having to leave our son. So we stepped back. Then in the line this couple comes up and they were looking for seats together, i kid you not he gave them seats together! I will NEVER EVER fly united every again. Thank goodness for this kind gentle to switch me seats on the plane because i was crying i had to leave my fiance after i just had to say goodbye to our son for 8 months!! I was so shocked!!! I will tell every single person i know to never use united! You guys should be ashamed of our company! I will inform every active duty member i come across!"
Pros: "Great service on first and third flights, customer service did an excellent job getting me on a new flight itinerary at the last minute when my original was delayed. Overall I only arrived about 3 hours later than I was supposed to."
Cons: "Being delayed in the first place--bummer, but not huge deal. 2nd flight seemed badly organized and not dealt with very well. Multiple people were booked in the same seats, etc. Not impressed."
