Pros: "Wonderful friendly crew. Comfy seat. Very pleasantly impressed with the comfort on a CRJ900 -- windows are large and closer to eye level, standing room is enough."
Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"
Cons: "People should wait their turn getting off the planes “Wait until the seat in front of you is empty,” says the elementary school teacher .."

Pros: "Very bad crew. Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Crew could have been better"
Pros: "I liked that me and my boyfriend actually got to sit together."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "No service, very hard landing - many screams"

Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No food or drinks"
Cons: "The seats were very close together which made for an uncomfortable experience due my knee injury and upcoming surgery."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Crew arrived late from Buffalo (?!?!) so our 7:59 flight didn’t start boarding until very close to that time. That delay, as Delta well knows, dominoed into LGA’s ATC issues and resulted in an arrival at DCA well after our scheduled arrival."
Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"
Pros: "Loved that the pilot or first officer, not sure which, came on the intercom at one point and said they were expecting turbulence ahead so if anyone needed to use the bathroom, right then would be the time to go!! Useful information and much appreciated."
Cons: "Some of the announcements by a female flight attendant were delivered at a very rapid pace and were hard to understand, and my first language is English."
Pros: "During some bad weather the pilots chose to go into a holding pattern to wait for a thunderstorm to leave the field. Thanks for considering our safety. The entire crew was awesome."
Cons: "Why do the airliine attendants make sure all of our seat belts are fastened before they give us a safety briefing to demonstrate how to buckle our seat belts?"
Cons: "price could be cheaper"
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Before was better no now"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Gluten free options! We have celiac disease and nice you offer GF options."
Cons: "Seating was done at the gate Didn’t appreciate being placed near the bathroom when it was evident the flight was not sold out"
Cons: "By mistake I booked my ticket for the wrong date Called to change it, wait time was over 2hrs went to the delta app and it cost me $200 to do it. Get to airport and ask for an up grade not possible but if I paid $200 when rebooking the flight I could have gotten one. Snacks were horrible and I have a delta card and was charged $29 to get in plus a charge for my extra suitcase. It’s ridiculous given the amount of money I spend on m card on the monthly basis. Very disappointing"
Pros: "On time, pretty friendly crew"
Cons: "Too small a plane for that long a trip. Bathrooms were VERY small & rare."
Pros: "Clean plane, friendly staff and timely departure."
Cons: "Waiting to get off the plane. Other customers moving too slow"
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "Empty seat next to me and actually got to stow my bag overhead. Good entertainment options. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Wi-Fi not functioning for second flight in a row. No food available for purchase, not even snack boxes. Best I could get was three bags of almonds."
Pros: "Flight Attendants!"
Cons: "When flight arrived late, the plane then required maintenance. After boarding, we were told the fuel vehicle was out of fuel. A small fuel truck was then called in, and it failed to operate. The Captain made a decision to deboard due to outside temperature with little air-conditioning...amd mid-deplaning...fueling was complete amd passengers were told to go back to seats. Flight Attendants were amazing throughout this incompetent ground crew ordeal.!!! Captain was Great as well...his effort kept all informed and sought the best possible outcome for his passengers!!!"
Pros: "It was my husband's birthday and the stewardess (red dress, long brown hair) went out of her way to make him feel special by bringing champagne, cookies and even chocolate once we were getting off the plane. I was very touched."
Cons: "The guy next to me was kind of smelly but was very nice."
Pros: "Nub"
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew very friendly. Plane was clean, boarding very organized but I would suggest boarding from the back forward. This would eliminate blocked aisles."
Pros: "GRU to ATL to LEX - all was fine. The plane from GRU to ATL was one of the nicer jets I have ridden in. The ratings above reflect my overall trip of going to Sao Paulo and returning to Lexington, even though the first part had to be re-booked on United."
Cons: "LEX to ATL to GRU did NOT happen because the LEX flights were delayed to the point of missing the ATL connection. While Delta re-booked me on United, my flight arrived 3 hours later than scheduled (so transportation plans had to change), my bag did not successfully move from the Delta flight to the United flight (and was thus delayed in getting to GRU) AND once the bag was received, 4 shirts had been stolen. While a delay/theft claim has been filed with United, this could all have been avoided if the Delta flights had been on time."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class so had more room, nicer seats. No lines at TSA, had the first gate past security so a short walk. Nice shopping and food choices."
Cons: "No meal served on flight, only drinks and cookies / popcorn. No entertainment at all. You have to provide your own device. There was wifi but not free, it was so slow I couldn't download the entertainment app, so I gave up and slept. No access to Delta lounge with domestic first class WTF?"
Pros: "This flight was quick to board and after a short flight was quickly back on the ground. No rating for food and entertainment because they are not available on such a short flight"
Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful. We had some medicine that needed to be refrigerated and they both provided a bag of ice for us to keep it in and checked back to replace the ice as it melted."
Pros: "No issues"
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight leader was entertaining and sounded well versed on the speakers. I really like that it was not a full flight. A little extra room to work with."
Cons: "Queue time in L.A to secure a gate. (Minor)"
Cons: "The plane temperature was too hot from boarding to landing"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Cons: "Time"

Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."

Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."

Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."

Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "KLM food and service are great"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Claiming that the plane was completely full (which it wasn't), They forced just about everyone to check there carry ons. When we got on board, there was plenty of overhead space. Supposedly, we should've have been allowed a carryon and a personal item."
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Pros: "The crew was perfect"
Cons: "No wi fi on the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4+ hours"
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "Thé qualité officielle the images"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Pros: "Crew was solicitous."
Cons: "They didn't seat a couple with a baby together which put me in the unpleasant place of being asked to give up my bulkhead seat for a window seat."
Pros: "I'm not Hindu, but I requested Hindu Vegetarian meal. It was very tasty and enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, even in Comfort + seating isle."
Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."
Cons: "More water provided during the flight. Also, the second meal was not very good."
Cons: "Baggage check in was stressful"

Cons: "Food and seating"
Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Cons: "shuttle from terminal to plane takes a long time. Flight left late"
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Pros: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."
Cons: "Coffee and a bread roll as a snack??"
Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Because of change in plane..bad choice of seat for long legs of husband...then late in Atlanta and very late into DC"
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
Cons: "I will not use o recommend to anyone to buy a ticket with the agency, at the airport in China we were treated like criminals because as they said we were not register in the system as passengers it was really a nightmare"
Cons: "Staff where so unhelpful that I missed my flight and then refused to offer any assistance as to how I could remedy this situation. This cost me over €180 which is a weeks food and stay for me. Don't fly with these guys or with air Croatia."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Worse food I ever had on a flight ( a small bowl of lentils and some bread) Movie selection was poor, although not a big deal"
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."
Pros: "I like the service. They caring and give snacks, comfort and overall"
Cons: "None. I like everything"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Pilots made up some of departure delay time in the air between NCE & CDG."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding process and minimal info or announcements regarding delay. Failure to respect SkyPriority status at boarding were disappointing. (Staff allowed it to be a bit pushy and chaotic and people were able to force their way in line, ahead of those who had been waiting in line.) Seats were okay but no recline and underseat storage was small. (Backpack wouldn't fit underseat and had to be stored in overhead.) Passengers crowding from back of plane upon arrival made it hard to deplane and felt rude."
Pros: "All was good we didn’t feel the time 9 hours passed easily"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "There should be more layover time as I almost missed my flight and My luggage was delayed!!"

Cons: "Took over 75 minutes (after arrival) for baggage to arrive on the carousel. Boarding area did not have well-defined lanes for different groups."
Pros: "Punctual, not crowded."
Cons: "Even though the plane was far from full, passengers were allowed only 1 carry-on item (no personal item), contrary to policy published online by Air France. This policy applied even to people with Economy Premium for the rest of the trip (which allows 2 carry-on suitcases, not a useful feature if one cannot begin with this number to reach the transoceanic flight)."
Pros: "The food, the service and everything else is fine, quite good."
Cons: "However, our baggages were 1 day late. Your missing baggages would deliver to you 1 day later, for some maybe 2 days later...Quite a few people said that it's been always like this with air Aeroflot if there is a transfer flight."
Pros: "Boarding & crew (inc ground staff & check-in) all good."
Cons: "Food not great - not all menu options available. Limited choice of drinks. Very small, low-resolution, seat-back screens with a luggish & outdated interface. Limited choice of movies."
Cons: "The air France flight was overbooked and we had been in standby until the last minute"
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."

Cons: "didn't have usb charging ports in the seats on one of the flights, in flight entertainment can improve."
Pros: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Cons: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."

Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"
Cons: "Flight wad delayed without letting me know anything for next schedule. and staff was non cooperative."
Pros: "Friendly attendants, excellent foods"
Pros: "The flights are fine, on time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Air Canada was a disaster on our vacation. Delays, re bookings, cancellations. Every thing was told to us as an excuse from the weather, flight attendant was running late, not staffed enough, need supplies on the plane, someone died, planes needing de-icing, planes too small, planes overbooked... you name it they said it! New York to Toronto, Toronto to Edmonton and return. Not one single flight was on time! We got put in a Hotel - only nice part of the trip - got Vouchers for $15 each - such a low amount!!! Didn't get our luggage with our clothes and amenities to use at the hotel - had to sleep in our plane clothes. Spend extra money we didn't have... it was awful! We will be staying away from Air Canada for awhile!"

Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The crew on board all flights were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "When I arrived at my destination I found that the item I had gate checked had been damaged- an instrument case I was no longer able to close. The zippers had both been busted off. Due to time constraints I was invited to write a review and email which I intend to do. The item itself was gate checked for safety - and to me the damage says that still somehow it is unsafe to fly with an instrument which as a professional musician is frustrating. In addition flights have very limited food options that accommodate persons with gluten/dairy allergies."

Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."
Pros: "My favorite part of the flight was our on time departure! :-)"
Cons: "I don't care for the configuration of the Airbus 320...it's rather difficult to adjust the overhead light and air, compared to the placement on a Boeing 737."
Pros: "Very helpful assistance staff, food and drinks delicious, excellent service onboard"
Cons: "At Denver assistance hadn’t been arranged"
Pros: "The crew was kind and entertaining and super helpful"
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "It would be better to load from the back to the front a lot less issues and less time consuming"
Pros: "I finally got home! What was supposed to be a 4-5 hour flight took over 12 hours."
Cons: "United Airlines sucks. If you can avoid United Airlines you should. They might seem like a better price but what they don’t tell you is they are going to burn your time and waste your money. They are not accountability for delays or non - delivery of service. Their customer service mantra"
Pros: "Crew was amazing seat are good from Denver to Cincinnati But from Edmonton to Denver seat were tight"
Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "United is consistently late and unhelpful with addressing travel delays. The first leg of my flight was delayed which would have caused me to miss my connection. United staff could not have been less helpful. In the future, I will try to avoid flying United wherever possible."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Seats are narrow. Not much shoulder space"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "We landed 30 minutes early! Hooray!"
Cons: "The plane was not clean, tray table was covered in crumbs. During beverage service, flight attendant handed me a can that was so filthy I had to wrap it in a napkin to keep from touching the surface again and use hand sanitizer to get the residue off my fingers."
Cons: "Cramped"
Cons: "Long delay."
Pros: "Wonderful timely departure and landing"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "On time and great professional staff throughout"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and took an average amount of time. We arrived exactly on time. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Plane was clean.. overall very pleasant !"
Cons: "My friend and I were forced to check our carry on bags at the gate and the airline lost my friends bag for four days."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff food was pretty good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The plane was run by ANA. It was super clean, the food was good and the attendants were great"
Cons: "It was the best economy flight I have ever had. Super."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "Leg room 7 aisle"
Cons: "Pretzels on a 4 our flight? There should have been some food"
Pros: "Tells me every step, ethat I need to take, without waisting time!"
Cons: "Hour delay and 30 minute wait on tarmac waiting for gate to be ready"
Pros: "Plane was a lot cleaner than I’ve been accustomed to. Boarding was great."
Cons: "I want real food on 4 hour flights where there’s only 1 hour between connections. Starving from 4am pacific to 5pm eastern time is not good for my blood glucose levels. Salt and gluten laden over priced snacks are not good enough"
Cons: "Was delayed at take off and was getting claustrophobic sitting in the plane for an hour before a five hour flight."
Pros: "The flight was fine. We were delayed 4 hours. We arrived in wash DC at 1:45am when we expected to land at 9:20pm. What we did not like was the lack of information about the pending flight. We could have rescheduled with better information."
Cons: "The light above my seat did not work so reading was a challenge"
Pros: "The space on the plane, we left on timeand arrived early and I was able to sit by myself."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke very harshly to me. I felt very embarrassed and offended."
Pros: "Flight was stuck on tarmac in Denver for 45 minutes. Missed connection Air hostess was very friendly throughout"
Pros: "Sadly, I am unable to find anything positive to say, aside from one customer service agent at LAX of the 7 I dealt with"
Cons: "The lack of accountability. Rude staff. The TSA was even more welcoming. Any time I had a question, I was pawned off to another agent, who would ignore me. I had to walk back and forth from gate to gate and was charged $310 for luggage."
Cons: "They were so late I got on a different airline"
Pros: "The crew on my 2 united flights on me way to Phoenix were extremely professional. One of my flight attendants, Carolyn (from Chicago) was excellent. United is not usually know for its great reviews, but I was very impressed. I will fly United again!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Chilly in the cabin"
Pros: "Plane took very late. No air conditioning for quite a long time before airplane took off."
Cons: "Never seems to happen to me on other airlines"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours And no one knew what was going on"
Pros: "The flight itself and the little snacks"
Cons: "Two ladies, one from each flight, were a little rude/pushy to the people when telling them to put the seats straight up. Not cool."
Pros: "Punctual departure, arrival ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The man in front of me thought it was obvious that he should enjoy 130% space, leaving me with 70%. I couldn't even read my magazine. I've paid full price for my seat. Slow service. Half an hour wait for baggage claim."
Pros: "Not much, except maybe the price."
Cons: "Rude ground staff (air staff were nice). Several delays and not organized at all."
Pros: "The wide seats"
Cons: "Big space"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and no touriblence"
Cons: "SFO canceled incoming flights so I asked to reschedule and they put me on a American Airlines flight that had a layover in Pheonix. Why did they use another airline? Why did I pay for a direct flight and have to have a layover. Why did I have to wait in security again. This has been the worst travel experience I've ever had and I'll make sure never to fly united airlines again."
Pros: "We flew though a tropical storm heading to Florida without any turbleance crew found narrow passage of clear skys"
Pros: "Seat comfort. Crew was much nicer than crew I had out Houston on previous trip."
Cons: "I put 3's on food and entertainment because it wasn't used partially due to availability. I wasn't able to download app and personal headphones ended up being checked due to small plane so couldn't listen to anything. I wasn't partial to food options so didn't get to eat"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "I was really upset when I was told at airport that my direct flight was changed to connecting flight. Plus I requested a wheelchair due to medical issues on my hip and I was not provided any wheel chair on Vancouver."
Pros: "Why's is there to like!!!?"
Cons: "No blanket.. No pllow"
Cons: "Comfort?? What comfort?? This will be the last time I'll use United !!!"
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly. One man was brusque when I asked for water to fill my small bottle. Rare since most crew members I've experienced have been very pleasant. Snacks were pretty paltry. Ned to serve some biscotti."
Cons: "I did not go to Edmonton, and was not notified. They placed me on a non stop from Vancouver to Chicago. It was lucky that I caught the change."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same as connections will never use United again bad experience"
Cons: "Had to reschedule my flight due to delay. The non English speaking ua agent put me on stand by at another airport without me knowing it"
