Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The main cable seats although newer were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Short flight just snacks. Was able to get a seat on standby for an earlier flight cutting my total travel time down by a couple hours. Very helpful gate agents"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "The trip was short."
Cons: "I didn't care for my engine only window view. Nor did i like that the crew barely served refreshments (other airlines have zero issues with this on a DTW-MDW or ORD with a larger plane and equal amount of flight stewards). The route was also akin to being on a rough patch of sea for an hour."
Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."
Cons: "start from the back to the front for god's sake! crew is often focused more on process than customer service."
Pros: "Very nice airport, comfortable and up to date"
Cons: "Having to wait for seat assignments - add to the stress of travel"
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Pros: "Nothing I can think"
Cons: "The seats selection"
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"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Very nice entertainment and staff"
Pros: "The crew were incredibly friendly. The copilot helped me gate-check my bag before he boarded when the bag didn't fit into the overhead bin."
Pros: "The flight attendant was pleasant"
Cons: "As usual, Delta regional jets with recurring mechanical problems change of planes, change of gates delay take off etc. This carrier has become a nightmare on this Detroit to Kalamazoo leg."
Pros: "The flight attendant was wonderful and was funny on the flight. Kayak kept me informed of all gate changes and delays."
Cons: "The Delta app did not update about any of my gate changes nor were they announced by the gate agents."

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: "See above."
Pros: "Arrived sooner than expected! Nice, smooth flight despite cloudy, rainy day."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."
Pros: "Crew ok. Not much information given."
Cons: "Bad weather. Bumpy. Low visibility. I can understand. I am a diabetic. Held for hours. No opportunity to purchase food. Two days to travel to CIU from Detroit, then flights cancelled. Rented a car to get home."
Pros: "On line customer service was very courteous and helpful."

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats were mostly comfortable and having the movies on the headrest is a wonderful idea!"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and some of us had to check our bags but atleast it was free of charge. They should work on that."
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, personable,joked around. I though boarding would take forever but very smooth."
Cons: "Honestly...being stuffed in like sardines ....it is getting worse. maybe the older I get the more I see it....but its so uncomfortable. I think the old days were much better!"
Pros: "Quick flight. Quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "Snacks are kinda lame."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and that added to an already for a very long day. We also ended up waiting a long time while aboard. There apparently was a weight balancing issue. It took them a long time to let us know why we were sitting there. Otherwise everything was okay."
Cons: "There was an almost 4 hour delay that WestJet is taking no responsibility for, and their online chat agents lack any compassion or understanding. Also received an email saying the aircraft changed and there would be a seatback flight entertainment system but there wasn't."
Pros: "Crew were nice, everything was on time."
Cons: "Need to use your own device to watch entertainment. No screens."
Cons: "WE WERE NOT NOTIFIED OF A GATE CHANGE IN CALGARY WHEN WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT. VERY CONFUSING. wE HAD TO ASK."
Pros: "Good crew and on time departure"
Cons: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very thankful my flight went smooth as I flew with my puppy."
Pros: "No frills. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early"
Cons: "Cabin was way too warm. Also not as much space on 737-700 as 737-800"
Cons: "The entire plane smelt like the washroom, and a mix of engine fuel. I wasn't extremely thrilled about that."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Cons: "My returning flights were not correct. I ended up having 2 returning flights back to Halifax which made me have to overnight in Toronto unexpectedly."
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Pros: "relatively inexpensive"
Cons: "my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me the flight left late, so arrived ~2.5 hours late"
Pros: "The crew are always great."
Cons: "The past few times my flight has been delayed"
Cons: "Head crew person was lazy and bad attitude. The rest were very good"
Pros: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Cons: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Pros: "Made it home faster than thought."
Cons: "Could use a pillow/blanket on a long, overnight flight like this. Small amounts of turbulence also cancelled in-flight services. Very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Cons: "Very few options were available to redirect me to my final destination"
Pros: "Downloaded WestJet app in Toronto while waiting to board the next flight. Enjoyed the selection of free movies and TV shows. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The connecting flight to Halifax was a long haul at the end of B terminal. Same airline, just really far away! Maybe it has to be that way due to the international arrival, but it was stressful. Wear tennis shoes! Flight attendants were efficient but not as friendly as the Toronto folks. The advertised “power at every seat” did not work."
Cons: "Electrical was out so not able to charge my device"
Cons: "Doing in flight entertainment via app is a fine idea. But your app requires way too many permissions so I won't use it. Otherwise, an excellent airline."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew. Flight left on time and arrived early."
Pros: "I'm trying real hard not to give WestJet a hard time but my seatmate had genuine mobility issues and the walk to the gate AND out to the plane which was unusually far from the terminal...little help here folks!"
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "WestJet Connect, food, fast service on board."
Cons: "Time to take off. A flight attendant told us to go back and register the car seat before boarding, but it was not necessary. Waste of time."
Pros: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Cons: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was somewhat delayed but everywhere it announced it was in time. Even at the luggage carousel upon arrival. Must keep the statistics up!!"
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Pros: "Always love the crew."
Cons: "We were an hour and a half late taking off."
Pros: "The staff were very good jumped in by running with me in a wheelchair till we met up with a cart then next team met up and took me again in a wheelchair down elevator made it just on time"
Cons: "Not having my rides there’s that I set up and almost late"
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Pros: "Flight was very pleasant, not full, on time and seats had electrical outlets and USB ports."
Cons: "They destroyed my checked luggage and refused to give me an adequate replacement. They also refused to cover for the resulting damages to my items."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival"
Pros: "Great atmosphere... entertaining staff, very pleasant."
Pros: "A bit more seat room. I'm a tall guy and was a bit cramp"
Pros: "Everything was great!!"
Pros: "No stops,"
Pros: "Not long to go through checkin."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "I forgot sparge photo on the plane and only realized this when i was picking up my checked bag. A crew member was able to get it off the plane and bring it to arrivals for me. I was very thankful."
Cons: "Seating was tight; I was a little too close for comfort to the passenger on my left."
Pros: "Cleaniness and timing the most."
Cons: "Snacks could have been better since this is not a short flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "I got charged for bags from Fort Lauderdale to Toronto than Toronto to Halifax"
Cons: "On the choice of audio entertainment, it uses Stingray which, just like radio broadcast for each category with no choice of album for personal preference, kind of disappointed. I like the previous menu with album choices."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Rough air"
Pros: "Boarding very fast"
Cons: "Very small plane. No snacks offered."
Pros: "The steward on the plane was friendly, funny and accommodating to all. He took time to engage some young children before takeoff. Took into consideration who was travelling together and left a positive impression! Plane boarded early and was loaded and ready to roll AHEAD of scheduled take off time."
Pros: "The entire boarding process, takeoff, staff were all good."
Cons: "The entertainment system went down mid flight and I was unable to finish watching a show. Not happy about this."
Pros: "Finding my luggage and sending it to me was the best part of this flight."
Cons: "Weather was the issue in Toronto on December 29, 2017. However, We're in Canada, Toronto specifically and we've dealt with weather like this NUMEROUS times. For Air Canada to cancel flights 2 times in a row without any further communications with any of us... To tell us when we'd be rebooked, how, etc. is horrible. I work in the transportation industry which is American based and we can handle this much better than Air Canada. Awful... Wendell/Gate Agent said he couldn't rebook my flight until the 31st, but when I got home I called air Canada and she was able to rebook me on the 30th with no issues. Nonsense. Wendell didn't care, he was tired, yawned in our faces like it was acceptable. Awful service. I'm flying with Air Canada on my way from India in the next couple of weeks I hope I get better service. Otherwise, completion will be my only option."
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"
Pros: "No food given. Flight was delayed on the way there because a crew member called in sick -- making me miss part of my work conference. No entertainment on the way back to NL."
Cons: "Would have preferred Westjet but they do not offer a flight from NL to PEI."
Pros: "on time."
Pros: "Quick easy flight. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Connection was two short when flight was delayed 15 minutes would have missed next flight. Had to change to different later flight ended up getting into St. John at a very difficult time to try and find our way in a new place. Flew direct to St. John."
Pros: "There were no issues on this flight. My screen worked and the flight was ok."
Pros: "No wasted time, they load you up and get you where you want to be."
Cons: "Be sure to gate check anything larger than a small backpack or purse. There is little room on board for carry-on's"
Cons: "Delayed, missed connection"
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Pros: "Seats were nice to recline and the in flight tv is much nicer than tablets etc. The in flight safety video is good and quick easy"
Cons: "Seriously? No free snacks? It's ridiculous that you want us to purchase snacks. Something small should be complimentary. Staff was in ok moods but a little edgy. The air was too cold."
Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."
Pros: "Why Canada created a ridiculous process that requires a $7 payment for transmitting in Canada is beyond me. I hope they realize they are impairing the competition of it's own national airline."
Pros: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Cons: "Nothing stands out about this flight."
Cons: "See above. I didn't fly as I had scheduled."
Cons: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Our flight got canceled 12 hours before we were supposed to take off. They postponed our flight 24 hours. It took forever to change it so that we still arrived at our destination on the same day. I'm glad I checked my email before going to bed because otherwise I would have shown up to the airport not knowing my flight was canceled. That should not have happened. It almost ruined my trip."
Cons: "Booked 2+ months in advance and didn't get a flight on Easter weekend"
Pros: "Great fast flight"
Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated and not functional"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "When someone has a terrible experience with a single individual it's just an anomaly. When it came to our experience it's easy to see that it's systemic and come from the top down in that company. The lack of customer service training is apparent. It was rampant and the overall feeling was just plain rudeness exuding from every team member. I'll never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "Once we got underway it was fine."
Cons: "6 hrs delay! The flight delays were mostly unannounced and we were sent from gate to gate multiple times without explanation of what was happening. We arrived at 3am."
Cons: "Had to have a visa for connecting flights. Not worth going through Canada."
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Pros: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working, so I had no entertainment for the ride."
Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Pros: "Leg room was better than most airlines as was the food and entertainment choices."
Cons: "Our entertainment system was broken."
Cons: "Couldn't rate entertainment- there was none - none expected"
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Aaron, was wonderful"
Cons: "Everything else was awful....I was taking an international flights, so arrived at the airport 3 hours early, as specified. There was no attendant at the desk until 1.45 hours prior to boarding. We almost missed the flight, and as a result, the connection to London. If possible, I will not fly air Canada again"
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""
Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent pilot"
Cons: "Huge delay, missed connection"
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
Pros: "No delays nice flight"
Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."
Cons: "Staff was useless. Made all international connections via my cell phone."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did not bother to inform us! Ended up flying on United and arrived 6 hours later than planned."
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Pros: "Steward was funny"
Cons: "Small plane, wasn't told ahead of time that there was no carry on luggage and I had lap top I had to carry on and expensive camera equipment that had to be checked, would not have taken this flight if I knew this ahead of time."
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"
Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"
Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"
Pros: "That we didn’t get harassed"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment if you didn’t bring a device. Even if you did needed an app for it and the United WiFi was incredibly limited and slow Staff could be friendlier instead of impersonal"
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."
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 was assigned a seat in the last row on the plane. during the flight two stewardesses sat in the area behind me. they were VERY LOUD during all the flight. So loud that I couldn't read the book I brought along. This was the leg from DTW to DEN."
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: "It was a smooth, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was late and caused a lot of stress and missed layovers. One of the crew members had a bad attitude when I offered to let my bags continue on the flight without me (I originally opted to deplane and stay in Detroit). I was only trying to be helpful and got my head bit off... I get It. It was a stressful situation, but the crew doesn’t need to add insult to injury. They’re getting paid hourly whether flights are on time or not. It’s the passengers who have a right to be anxious."
Pros: "I think was a zero-drama, one-hour flight from DTW to IAD. Can't ask for anything better than that (seriously)."

Cons: "Flight delayed only received a text about a rescheduled initial flight not my connecting flight waited in line for 2 hours only to find out I did have a connecting flight"
Cons: "We wasted six hours at the airport to find out we would not get to our first destination in time to catch our jointing flights.

Pros: "That was the worst traveling experience I've had to date. Yes, I understand there were storms and natural circumstances that held the flight and for that - I understand. What I do not care for is the lack of customer service. There was only one person at the counter in the airport. And let's not mention the unpleasant flight attendent on at 5 hour flight! Nothing offered for the inconvenience. Everyone including the pilot was just as irritated as the passengers. I usually prefer United when flying coast to coast but...worst experience yet."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "On point"
Cons: "Everything on point"
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"

Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Cons: "After my first flight was cancelled for no clear reason, I was rebooked on one which was 8 hours later (not the one of the first flights out). When I arrived to the airport my flight was then delayed another hour. This was two days after my previous flight with United which had us sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting for updates about whether or not we could take off."

Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane departure wa two hours late leaving causing missed connections. There were two United employees at the counter and one left. They were to help us change connections so te line was long and VERY slow. Half of us didn't get the connections changed. We de larded in Houston with connections that were unreasonable. United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."

Cons: "The customer service was horrible and I was stranded for two additional days."
Pros: "Not a damn thing."
Cons: "My flight was held back 2 hours because "a flight attendant called off". So I missed my connecting flight "I touched down as the connecting flight was supposed to take off". I was put on a standby list for a flight leaving later that night and I didn't get it. I was told I had to wait until 7am the next morning to get on a flight. After asking, I was given a hotel, cab, and 2 food vouchers. The taxi took me to the hotel united chose. I got there and there were no vacancies. I had to pay for my own taxi to a different hotel that luckily took my voucher for the other hotel. after all this mess I only got 2 hours sleep. The 7am flight waited for its connecting flights. This delay cost me a third of my trip and money on my first night at my hotel."
