Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No screens on the plane...for a 6 hour flight. Additionally, the seats are close together."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Seat could have been better. More room. In flight internet and movies would have make the flight great"
Cons: "We were on the plane for about an hour due to a thunderstorm. Could not de-plane because another plane was still at our gate. It was really hot and humid in the plane after an hour we landed and we were stuck in the plane for an hour"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Fresh food and better entretaiment"
Cons: "I was downgraded from first class with no answer and no cash or credit"
Cons: "One of my better flights on Alaska. The chicken sandwich was very tasty, the crew was great, they made sure I had what ever I needed. Water, coffee, food & more than once"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and very polite. I like that one carry on was included in my ticket. Enough leg room. Love the free in flight movies! Glad I didn’t have to purchase a beverage either."
Cons: "I will never understand the way boarding works. Did going from window groups, middle seat groups to aisle seat groups not work? I hate having to squeeze through and hope I don’t knock anyone in the face with my bag. I don’t like I can’t pick my seat and that my seatbelt is a little too tight. If I get a seat in the back I’m waiting for everyone else to get on and then for them to get off the plane. I guess I’ll have to pay the $75 fee for “first class” next time since that’s the only way to update my seat. And if I have a “saver rate” ticket - I should be able to still change my flight within 24 hours. I wanted to come back a day earlier and it was the same price! But I would’ve had to cancel and repurchase for an additional $200!!!"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew the boarding was good"
Cons: "They didn’t have no hot beverages know Tina coffee that was a bummer"

Cons: "Would love cheaper flights"
Pros: "The fruit and platter, instead of the meal offerings in first class.. Delicious. Warm nuts. delicious. Salted caramel brownie, not good at all. People in first class need to pre- order their meals on the Alaska app, so you will get what you want for your meal. Flight attendants were excellent. Knowledgeable. A medical emergency happened during the flight, the flight crew were very good at assessing the situation, and accessing help on board, as well as on the ground. We hit a lot of turbulent air the last portion of the flight, two aborted attempts at landing, and a long while of figure eights over the KC area to wait out the thunderstorms and wind, we arrived well over an hour late. The flight crew instilled calm, and made us feel safe."

Pros: "The available movies and TV shows via wifi"

Pros: "The room, it was clean, great staff"
Pros: "Very good flight and great price."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "no complaints!"
Pros: "I love the ability to stream movies on your own devices."
Cons: "The movies would 'skip' missing whole scenes at times."
Pros: "Eveything in the plane looked fantastic. But still a tight fit. Drinks and food were offered often and the employees retrieved the garbage prompty. Best thing was we left on time and were early getting to Seattle. Our baggage got to the baggage claim area at lightening speed. At least 4 times faster than with our return trip on Spirit. (It took forever"
Cons: "They couldn't land in Ketchikan due to fog so they flew up to Sitka and got back 3 hours later, missed my connection in Seattle and spent the night at the airport, the I got charged 50 dollars for switching my tickets, are you kidding me, Alaska airlines sucks big time"

Pros: "Plane was late to the terminal. Crew got it turned over, boarded, and off the ground in a very small amount of time."
Cons: "Couldn't get a seat assignment despite booking the tickets months ahead of time, and checking in 24 hours before the flight. The plane was already mostly boarded by the time I was finally assigned a seat."
Pros: "Everything and everyone. Friendly, helpful, decent legroom and love the direct flight from SEA to DTW!"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "While traveling recently with Alaska Airlines, my traveling partner and I were offered seats in the exit row, by the lady who checks your boarding pass at the gate. We gladly excepted the roomier seating. We were issued new boarding passes, and made our way to our seats. Once we settled in, a flight attendant asked to see my boarding pass. She looked at it and said, "Yep Amber so-and-so, seat 17B." Apparently, the airline had combined 2 flights, so people were all crammed into a new tighter space. There was even a bumped "first class" customer all squabbling over the seats. My traveling partner and I, eventually just asked them to please give us our old seats back. Finally, we were seated in our original seats. We never asked to be moved in the first place, it was offered to us. The whole thing was humiliating, and unnecessary."
Pros: "Everything went just as it should."
Cons: "Nothing went wrong."
Pros: "fast and efficient boarding process, with plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row, next to the bathrooms. Since they did 4 in-flight beverages during the 5 hr flight, people kept getting stuck by the bathroom unable to get back to their seats. This seemed like an excessive amount of beverage services (contributed towards people needing to use the bathroom so much) and contributed to a bunch of people covering over my seat for most of the flight."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew, and blocked the middle seat for our infant."
Cons: "Incredibly unhelpful unapologetic and generally sullen ground crew both coming and going even AFTER our infant car seat was lost for 4 days. No apology when we checked and and asked for reimbursement and actually rolled her eyes when we asked her to double check the destination."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional"
Cons: "Nothing that would be worth mentioning, I don't fly very much so I'm not comfortable doing it yet"

Flight crew were ok, however to charge for a carry on is ridiculous when the ticket I used was the balance for a Caribbean flight.

Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."

The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Over charged for baggage"
Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Pros: "The service in economy"
Cons: "The long layover at JFK. On the long flight the square footage around my seat can become extremely small especially when the person ahead of me decides to recline to the max."
Pros: "The light snack was adequate. My husband is a big guy and sometimes has issues flying due to size, found seats to be comfortable. Also, Jetblue gave us us a $50 credit for the inconvenience."
Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."

Cons: "I wanted them to bring more coffee around"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for at least 40 minutes because there was no copilot!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Security was so backed up. I was not the only one who missed a flight, there were several people in line with me That also missed fights. They seemed very understaffed. When myself and other passengers asked them for help, they either ignore us or laughed."
Cons: "3 hour delay due to equipment problems"
Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment and cabin staff!!"
Pros: "Service was excellent and we actually had leg room!!"
Cons: "World‘s tiniest airplane toilet. I think munchkins built this for other munchkins. And I don’t mean big munchkins, but real real small munchkins."

Cons: "TV was not working well. Ear jack needs replacement"
Pros: "This was a quick trip to Florida for the weekend. Boarding etc. was easy and The flight was uneventful. We landed early… A successful trip!"
Cons: "I was traveling with a friend and we were unable to sit together."
Pros: "Crew provided great service."
Cons: "My seat's TV screen had a terrible picture that got worse during the flight."

On time, cordial service,

Simple and easy

Had a crying baby the whole flight. When we arrived at the gate we had to wait for the gangway.

Don’t give me a chair that can’t lean back. I got one in both legs of my flight. And I know I did not select those seats.

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"
Pros: "No entertainment on the plane and plane was very small..."
Cons: "Explain flight situations better.."
Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin attendants. Especially Irene."
Cons: "Food was poor. I would prefer a good piece of cheese or fruit."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all."
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Pros: "Almost 3 hours of delayed"
Cons: "Almost"
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Cons: "It could have left on time or they could have told us they weren’t leaving and let us get some sleep."
Pros: "The seat was great, I wish all seats on the plane were that comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, everyone was great"
Pros: "I had a very comfortable seat, it was a very good experience overall."
Cons: "Unfortunately had flights delayed which forced me to arrive home much later than originally planned."
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paying for seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large man (6’5” he said) and had no room in my seat. Thankfully the seats in front of us were empty and the flight attendant moved him."
Pros: "Able to watch a movie, even though can't finished it."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE, LATE ARRIVAL IN ATLANTA. Good thing I brought some snacks. My seat was changed to the window (I hated it) instead of aisle as I pickedbefore when I checked in in Amsterdam. I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "Love the built in tv’s with free entertainment."
Cons: "The plane got delayed on the runway and the shut the engines off so the plane got super hot, but even after we got up in the air it never cooled down. Normally I’m freezing on flights, but I just sat sweating this whole flight. It was terrible."
Pros: "It was too cold on the flight. I asked for a blanket and luckily the stewardess had one. However, before giving it to me, she told me it was the only one on the flight!"
Pros: "Swift travel!"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "on time, good service,"
Cons: "i agreed to check in my bag at the gate when they asked for volunteers thinking I would get it at the gate of my destination but after i checked it in in gate attendant informed me that i would get my bag at the baggage claim"
Pros: "Free movies. Clean and modern look to airplane."
Cons: "Could not get wifi to work."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."

Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Sat on the plane on the tarmac for over an hour in the cold..."

Cons: "Was not given a chance to select seats in advance. Also was not advised where I should go to get my boarding pass because there is no China Southern counter at Detroit airport."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Pros: "Updated plane, movies are old but a verity"
Cons: "Lost two pieces of luggage"
Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"
Pros: "Trip and flight crew excellent!"
Cons: "I understand that they couldn't deliver luggage during lightening, but my luggage and clothes were soaked!"
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Cons: "Nice"
Cons: "I bought WiFi for my iPhone on the flight and could barely use it because it kept kicking me off and was super slow."
Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Crew at the desk were rude. They also enacted policies that I'd never seen before about gate checking, and implied I was crazy when I noted how unusual it was. I literally came off a previous AA flight with the previous policy and they said I was confusing them with AE."
Cons: "The AA app broke"
Pros: "Comfortable seats & fast boarding"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Landing"
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"
Cons: "Felt good to be home after almost 4 hours delayed."
Cons: "No delay Ability to connect wireless headphones"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "Being bumped to first class."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They didn't tell us it was delayed until 2 hours before the flight, by which time we were already at the airport. They first delayed it 1 1/2 hours and then another 30 minutes every half hour. The airline/crew never even acknowledged the delay or apologized for it."
Cons: "A small meal would have been appreciated for first class cabin. Al that was offered was a cookie."
Pros: "Accommodation to any concerns"
Pros: "Fast boarding and unloading."
Cons: "Flight leaving on time."
Cons: "If we were able to have made the flight"
Pros: "Th flight was a few minutes late boarding but we landed on time. It was a nice smooth flight!"
Cons: "My A/A flight, which was scheduled to get in after midnight, was delayed by over an hour with multiple gate changes."
Pros: "The staff were polite and the pilot kept us on time. The flight wasn’t over booked and I was able to have an extra seat between myself and the other passenger in my row."
Cons: "That due to the Kayak purchase I had to wait until the last group to board."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"
Cons: "There was a lot of announcements on the very early flight trying to get people to signup for a credit card...too early for all those unimportant announcements :("
Pros: "Perfect"
Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and the cleanliness was excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable!"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."
Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Pros: "They were able to arrange for a seat for my daughter who was technically a lap child. The crew were courteous and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "our flight were on time. Staff was very helpful, I walk with aid of a cane."
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Cons: "Far too crowded"
Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"
Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"
Cons: "Typical American Airlines delays...."
Pros: "The pilot got us home to Detroit!"
Cons: "Flight delay after flight delay after a terrible experience with Spirit and having to switch to your airline."

Good flight.

Cons: "Wifi didn’t work entire flight even though I had paid for it ahead of time"
Pros: "Great crew. Fast and easy boarding."
Cons: "Little planes need an interior restoration to make them look better."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "I didn’t even make this flight!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"
Cons: "Choices of TV selection"
Cons: "It took 45 minutes for the luggage to arrive at the carousel, and they sent it to the wrong carousel. Not sure if it was at the other one the whole time, or just took that long."
Pros: "All I got was a $20 food voucher for a 9 hour delay and missed meeting."
Cons: "All I got was a $20 food voucher for a 9 hour delay and missed meeting."
Cons: "Baggage did not make the connecting flight. Their baggage service is poor. Didn’t receive my 2 bags until 10:30pm the next day."
Cons: "We were delayed in Detroit due to deicing the plane. We landed in Houston late. They let us and a few other couples off the plane first so we could make our connection. We sprinted off the plane and arrived to the gate two minutes after they closed the door; plane was still there and they would not let us on. United knew we were coming and they closed the door anyway. The next flight out to Liberia, Costa Rica wasn’t for two more days. They ended up rebooking us on a flight to Panama which had a connection to San Jose, Costa Rica. Much farther of a drive from that airport. Very disappointed in how United handled this situation, we were told if it was a bigger group they would have held the plane for us. I will never fly United again but I know it has nothing to do with Kayak. Kayak has always been great and is my go to for booking plane tickets."
Pros: "I was connecting from another flight. The plane left on time, and arrived earlier than planned. I've had much worse experiences on domestic flights, and I was expecting delays."
Cons: "I had to cancel my trip due to family illness. And I guess that is not acceptable to United Airlines for a refund or reschedule without a fee that I could actually buy a new ticket for the cost of their fee. So I am losing out $578.00 Not happy."
Pros: "The flight was fine. Nothing that should have been positive stands out as missing."
Cons: "The first class flight attendant (male) was the worst. No interest in being on the plane, didn't bother to speak clearlybon the announcements. United should pull this person off of flight duty and deal with this person. The second is a terrible parent who let their kid cry the whole flight and afterwards in the jet way. This wasn't an infant had to be 4-5 years old and there was no parenting at all. The kid was old enough to be talked to. If you're kids can't handle flying, you don't get to fly."
Pros: "No delay, not crowded"
Pros: "I think was a zero-drama, one-hour flight from DTW to IAD. Can't ask for anything better than that (seriously)."
Pros: "Liked excellent food and beverage service by courteous and attentive crew. Flight was listed as serving only snacks so was surprised to be served an excellent Asian Noodle and Steak Salad and continuous beverage service. Flight attendant responded immediately when I had trouble with my headphone cable and brought me a replacement cable. Entertainment option with wide choice of live television was fine for flight and helped make flight go by fast. This was our first use of first class service, and we would consider it again. I had unsatisfactory experience with United last year and saw great improvement."
Cons: "I would have preferred not having to travel to Newark to get Florida flight since Newark Airport was crowded and boarding experience took too long."
Pros: "Comfy seats and a smooth ride."
Cons: "Waited to taxi for almost an hour."
Cons: "I will not pay extra to access any in-flight entertainment on a flight. I prefer Air Canada's free in-flight screen access wirh unlimited movies available."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delay before boarding. Boarded and delayed take off. Emergency landing in Baltimore. Talk of busses. Reboarded. Drove the runway in circles. Panic attack. Unboarded followed by the rest of the plane and we then boarded 3 buses that got us to Jersey in 4 hours. I reviewed this once. HORRIBLE."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."
Pros: "2nd class flight attendants were amazing they felt bad about the Greg situation . So we call ourselves second class as a joke now ."
Cons: "Went to use the bathroom in first class since one bathroom was locked and there was a very long line. He made me feel so uncomfortable and embarrassed me saying this is first class and it's a rule. Very rude horrible service"
Pros: "Connecting flight cancelled could not on another flight of two days will never fly throw Fort Myers ever again"
Cons: "Only one flight to Key West a day out of Fort Myers at 5pm who does that"
Cons: "I was unable to load on to the plane after trying to confirm my conferirmatiojn. I was scheduled for a flight from Detroit to Newark New Jersey . I had received a hematoma at the airport directly prior to the flight at the counter in Detroit. It was essential that I be on the flight because my aunt died the next day and was extraordinarily ill. This was all explained to the agent. They did nothing to help in this mess. I ended up flying to Washington DC on a different airline. They did nothing to try to help. I want a refund for this flight. There is no reason the airline could have helped out in some way. I have emergency room bills and death notices. Thanks for your help."
Pros: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"
Pros: "They allowed us to watch movies on our phones for free."
Cons: "I tried to cancel my reservation and they wanted to charge me $200 to cancel a $279 flight. My seat would not recline at all."
Pros: "That I was able to get out of the ide seat"
Cons: "Because my flight was delayed I got re-routed so I no longer was. In preimier section and had to leave even later, and I was placed in a middle seat."
Cons: "Never gave me the option to select seat."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful, food was ok."
Cons: "It is uncomfortable, you can´t select a decent seat and there´s no entertainment, you hae to pay for it. There's suppose to be an option with mobile devices but when you make the ticket purchase it only says that entertainment is included in longflights and it is not. I paid for the entertrainment system but you have only some options and the movies start according to their own schedule so you can't really pick what you want to watch. And the directv remotes are not set in a good place, the are in the arm rest, so everytime the person next to you moves the wrong way they change your channel or turn the volume down or something else. For such an expensive and long flight the tiny space between chairs and entertainment lack is unacceptable."
Pros: "The airport was nice and had plenty amenities. Good restaurant choices, places to shop, plenty of places to sit and relax with cell charging stations. Lots to keep you entertained while you have a layover."
Cons: "Plane was over crowded.the seats are narrow and uncomfortable. Person behind me was constantly kicking the back. I was in the window seat and the guy next to me had a large athletic physique and was over-flowing into my personal space. On top of that he had a severe case of toxic flatulence."
Pros: "We took off 4 hrs late because of a brake issue. But we did make it. They didn't cancel."
Pros: "We arrived safely in fort Myers which was the most important part! The plane was very clean and I like the leather seats."
Cons: "The flight was delayed waiting for an aircraft."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It cost me money to rent a hotel to stay overnight and get here in the morning and my flight was still delayed because there was no body to tow the the plane and bring it to the gate . Miss work , miss appointments , etc . Pharmacy about to shortdown because of this poor notifications . Could have gotten an American Airlines direct flight to Dallas in the morning and minimize the situation"
Pros: "Price was fair"
Cons: "Bathroom was nasty"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight got hit with a fuel tankard and I had to stay in a hotel for the night. I didn't get to fly home that night and it messed up my entire schedule for the weekend."
Pros: "Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Direct TV out most of the flight"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "It was so late it left me in the lurch and ruined my week"
Cons: "without notice, plane made significant shift ..about 70 degrees..... Passengers began to scream. after about 5-10 minutes, pilot announces we were 10 miles away from plane in front of us and got caught in its tail wind. I was never so frightened on an airplane as this flight."
Pros: "The United site suggested to arrive 1 hour prior; however, I came within seconds of missing this flight because of the lines at security."
Cons: "Security lines"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The way they board the plane is rediciulous, this 1-5 boarding process is horrible."
Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and clearly well trained. The seats had plenty of leg room. For being an early flight I was able to take a nap on the plane comfortably."
Cons: "It listed that there was private tvs for each passenger but I didn't see a single screen. Maybe I needed to be more proactive with asking about them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues. The AC was not working but they had us sit in the plane for an hour in the heat while they tried to fix it. Then finally had us deplane to wait for replacement plane. Not that the employees weren't polite and courteous because they were, but the last time I had a delay like that the airline gave everyone vouchers for $100 off next flight they booked. Your company let us watch TV for free. Hardly comparable!"
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so I had to put my carry on under the seat in front of me meaning less leg room. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "The departure monitor first said "on time," then "awaiting aircraft," with ever-later estimates for departure. There was little confidence that there would even be a plane."
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
