(Only an hour trip, so no beverages or snacks for us)"

Pros: "All flights were on time. Boarding was well organized."

Pros: "The prompt take off and landing..."
Pros: "the first flight from Chicago to London was great. very good aircraft."

Pros: "GREAT movie selection!"
Cons: "Didn't like sandwich for lunch, but the other meal was good."
Cons: "Extremely old aircraft. Entertainment was terrible with old screens which had half the pixels missing, mapping was 1980s style. It's about time BA updated or got rid of these old planes. Seat would not recline as we were stuck in the very back row of economy. Very uncomfortable experience. BA, this is no longer good enough - relying on customer loyalty will no longer work!"
Pros: "Everything except the seating of groups"
Cons: "Many of the passengers were split from their group. We were fortunate to be able to trade seats twice so we could sit together but many groups were spread throughout the cabin."
Cons: "Crew unable to control students passengers who are noisy, w/c made our travel uncomfortable"
Pros: "Arrived 30 minutes late after problem at gate with the Jetway not retracting. Ground staff were pleasant. In-flight staff were friendly and helpful. Food was okay."
Cons: "Having to pay to select your seats is bargain carrier behavior. My family of four had to pay nearly $400 extra to select our seats in advance instead of having them assigned to selecting them the day of the flight. Seats were cramped and not too comfortable. I flew Air France on a previous trip to Europe and it was much more comfortable seating. The in-flight entertainment system kept freezing up and had to be reset multiple times. The touch screen (which is the method of navigation through the system) did not work. On a 5 hour flight that would be an inconvenience - on an 11 hour flight it is a bit more of a problem."
Pros: "I loved the legroom in the emergency seat I had and the service was top notch. The food and food choices was also really nice and the wine served with dinner was great."
Cons: "Overall loved my emergency row seat the only negative for my particular seat was once the rest of my row was filled in and the 2 seats in front of me it made it impossible to get out of the seat and stand up unless I could had the person sitting in front of me get out of his seat."
Pros: "Staff very friendly and attentive"
Pros: "Punctual, relaxing."
Cons: "No free refreshment, not even water."

Pros: "service with british airways was top notch"
Cons: "the group I travelled with were supprized that the seats were not very comfortable considering how new of a plane it was"
Pros: "British Airways makes you pay extra to pick your seat The alternative is to take the luck of the draw and hope you don't get the middle on the center aisle Kind of annoying"
Pros: "Good entertainment options Made home it alive Lots of water"
Cons: "Bad seats by the washroom but I guess someone has to sit there Food isn't the greatest Not British beer? Wife's headphone jack was pretty beat up and only worked out of one ear even with trying different headphones. Mine was pretty borderline as well."

Pros: "A little more leg room than the next leg of our flight."

Cons: "2.5 hours late taking off."
Pros: "The idea of having inflight entertainment."
Cons: "1. Crew moved my luggage without asking, 2. Sat in window seat and it was easily 85 degrees, 3. Seat is not made for someone 6’2”. Neck support falls at shoulders which was super uncomfortable, 4. Inflight entertainment worked for a bit then didn’t."
Pros: "Crew was courteous; greeted entering and departing the plane. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Increase leg room and widen seating- way too narrow in width and uncomfortable. Flight, although it arrived on schedule, was unable to taxi to the to dock at gate due to lack of ground crew. I have experienced on-time arrivals only to wait on the tarmac until ground crew arrives is unacceptable."
Pros: "Most people had movies and other things to entertain themselves with via rear seat displays."
Cons: "My rear seat display never worked, though I complained about it at least 6 times during the flight. Nothing was offered to aid or fix the problem besides the stewardess saying she'd reset it several times."

Cons: "Flights got delayed"
Cons: "The crew was great, but AA needs to step it up with comfort and amenities!"

I asked the other flight attendant to relay my request to her, again she ignored me. This was ten minutes before takeoff..."
Cons: "I’m still on the plane and there’s this poor sick dude across from me who is sneezing and snorting and spewing phlegm everywhere!!! I feel so sorry for him bc he’s got muscular dystrophy or something and it’s uncontrollable. But I also feel sorry for the poor little girl next to him!

Pros: "Comfortable seat and environment, great food, smiling helpful staff"
Pros: "Quick time in boarding and exiting plane in Charlotte."
Cons: "Frustrating to pay extra for priority boarding so they don't require that my carry on be checked which requires me to take half of my luggage and shove it in my backpack to make sure that it lands with me."
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Cons: "Having my 5am oneway flight cancelled 3 hrs before flight time resulting in rebooking with layover and tripple the time it would have taken to get to my destination"

Pros: "Cabin crew (one person) was courteous and professional, but definitely in charge."
Cons: "AA has the same shuttle problem at DCA."
Cons: "Nothing, really"
Cons: "The parking garage is confusing, but worth the extra money to park there."
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight so I had more legroom, since I didn't have a person sit beside me on both flights. The flights arrive on time. Boarding was organized, quick and effective."
Cons: "Flight attendant provided a snack to everyone and forgot to offer a snack to me. There were children on both flights, kicking my seat through 60% of the flight. There was not entertainment provided for brief flights and the snack selection was mediocre."
Pros: "The boarding agent in Jacksonville, FL was a spirited, beautiful woman. She had everyone in the terminal cheer all the soldiers on our flight. And was very helpful to me getting a seat closer to the door as I was having horrible spasms in my back. She is what AMERICAN Airlines should be to all customers. Gate B47 on 9/30."
Pros: "Over all wonderful!"
Pros: "Easy not very busy airports makes boarding easy. Pay extra for seat but I can choose where to sit+++ Cost was very favorable for flight"
Pros: "Plenty of room for carry-on bags"
Cons: "Charlotte airport was a zoo due to delays of slights coming in but all outgoing flights were on time so many connections including mine were missed"
Pros: "well, everything was fine but it was a tiny plane so there wasn't any entertainment and it was a short flight so there wasn't any food."

Cons: "I've been waiting a total of 6 hours so far. My plane was delayed yesterday and they sent me home, which was a 2 hour drive plus car rental. I came back this morning only to find I'm delayed again for another 4 hours. I'm a patient man but this was a bit to much even for me. This is my first written complaint I've ever had with any business"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Our flight did not depart until 40 minutes after it was supposed too due to some staff confusion. Hardly got water."
Cons: "I tooka trip to Jacksonville Florida and the flight was 2 hours late because they had no flight crew. Guess what on my return flight it was also late about 2 hours. Is this the new standard."

Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"
Cons: "Since my flight was delayed from calgary I had to sleep overnight to catch a morning flight. To my inconvenience I had to wait to have my seat assigned at the gate. I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said. "no more aisle seats". bad experience with ground staff in general as this is not the first time."
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."
Pros: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Cons: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Pros: "Prompt.. Cleaning"
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The trip took about 48 hours. After a cancelled flight I got no hotel discount. Several flights were delayed or cancelled and in the end I ended up just going to a city 3 hours from where I live and renting a car to drive home. My luggage still hasn't arrived. This was the worst, most stressful travel experience of my life."
Pros: "More leg room than on other airlines, friendly crew"
Cons: "No snack provided"
Pros: "Calgary air port was very beautiful. I did enjoy movies."
Cons: "flight was delayed for 5 hours with 0 communication from staff. customers were only given a $10 coupon and then encouraged to buy another flight with only 10% off..."
Pros: "Since it was very hard to sleep in the airport due to issues caused by air canada, I slept almost the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ."
Pros: "It was smooth and great trip."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "My flights went very smoothly with no delays. Flight attendants were receptive and attentive."
Pros: "Nice service, flight was on time and can't complain. :)"
Cons: "Nothing to really put in here. Only a short flight and everything was above board. Sorry, no rant or raving today. Maybe next time."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "For such a long flight some free snacks would be nice"
Cons: "They could have done the boarding different. There was a bit confusion about when to board."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Food was simple and bland. I was not allowed more than 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 hr flight -- what is that?"
Cons: "We got held up in Calgary due to the fact they lost everyone's checked bags then we finally got to LA they still had lost them. They told us they would have the bags to us in a matter of hours but it took 3 days."
Pros: "but only a few minutes late arriving ..."
Cons: "Boarded on time then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for the water truck."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."
Pros: "Crew was great!! Smooth landing!!"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"
Cons: "Air Canada has very poor communication with customers. Having seen that ALL flights were delayed (it was 9:40 pm when I connected through Toronto) I asked 2 Air Canada employees about my 10:30 flight that showed on time on the monitor but Kayak already said it was late. They said it was late due to late inbound aircraft. A fellow passenger informed me that TO was down to one runway and things would be late late - which they were. TALK to us Air Canada!!!"
Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."
Pros: "No problems, clean, friendly staff, comfortable chairs with the head rest that folds up towards your ears."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."
Pros: "The boarding process, with a child is good. They allow you to board earlier than your designated zone."
Cons: "The check in process took over 30 minutes with a desk agent and the "system wasn't working properly." There were no food options from the menu available. The crew did not appear as knowledgeable as other crews I've flown with."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Seating was so cramped and the plane smelt terrible"
Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."
Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"
Pros: "Direct flight most helpful."
Pros: "Loaded quickly,"
Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"
Pros: "Selection of movies available for short flight"
Cons: "There were issues with the aircraft which caused an hour delay for the flight. Upon arrival (unrelated to the aircraft) there was another delay from the airport not being able to allocate an available platform to exit the aircraft."
Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"
Pros: "Kayak's reasonably priced tickets"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainments in the equipment (plane)"
Pros: "All aspects of the actual flight were good. The flight attendants were pleasant and professional and the food choices were good."
Cons: "The flight we had booked was cancelled. Were were rebooked on a different flight - the time was good as it got us home when we were supposed to arrive. The changed flight involved an additional transfer, which was stressful because of tight timeline."
Pros: "Airplanes, entertainment, boarding, check in"
Cons: "Food, conections"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Cons: "We didn’t have food on our flight, but ordered it at a cost. We didn’t get the food or pay for it."
Cons: "Excellent keep doing what you do."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I was left stranded."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Tight seats, no access to actual WiFi unless you purchase a yearly or monthly plan"
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent"
Cons: "The drinks for purchase were absorbant"
Pros: "Girl at boarding counter. Male steward. Very nice."
Cons: "Female stewardess over hour late had to wait for her. And she didn’t even smile when she finally arrived. Couldn’t be bothered. Rude and disrespectful to people."
Pros: "The credit was polite, hat was about it"
Cons: "We were delayed coming out bc the plane needed de-icing... IN JACKSONVILLE, but they were unable to get manager approval for de-icing and then the truck was out of fuel. Finally, the pilot moved the plane into the sun (which should have happened much sooner). During the flight, the cabin temperature dropped to low 60s and everyone was freezing."
Cons: "Seat was really hard and hurt to sit on after the first hour. Even had trouble sleeping it was so bad."
Cons: "The United Boarding Agent repeatedly warned about the "SMALL" carry on compartments on the CJR aircraft and literally insisted we tag our carry ons to be set aside on boarding even though we knew they fitted OK. AS A RESULT when we got to Calgary we had to wait at the over size luggage racks for our carry ons to be delivered instead of them being set up for us as we left the aircraft which is normal!! Very frustrating!!"
Pros: "ON TIME,"
Cons: "BASIC ECOMONY PASSENGERS ARE INCONVIENCED AT AIRPORT, WE WERE NOT PERMITTED TO CHECK IN ONLINE AND GET PRINT BOARDING PASSES. HAD TO GO TO AIRPORT TO CHECK IN FIND A BETTER WAY WITHOUT INCONVENCING PASSENGERS.....(AS USUAL)"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant!"
Cons: "The food was absolutely horrible!"
Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"
Pros: "The crew was working efficient and tried to respond to request"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold. I came prepared but had to hunker down under blankets even though I had two shirts and a jacket on. This is not acceptable for any flight or airline. I caught a cold on my return trip due to this. I'm disappointed as it seemed like a newer plane. The stewardess acknowledged this but was unable to get our section to warm up. Everyone in my area of the plane was Ice cold."
Cons: "When comparing flights between only United flights, the economy & economy plus categories are a distraction. Especially if you are traveling with more than two people. When comparing across airlines, it is annoying because you have to add back costs that the "other" airline include in their price. In the future I am going to compare all "other" flights without United and then check United as the "low cost provider"."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."
Pros: "Smooth and efficient"
Cons: "no snacks!!!"
Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Pros: "nice and easy boarding, good customer relations"
Pros: "I like flying and window seats"
Cons: "There is nothing I can do about it, but the distance between seats is really cramped."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delays the entire trip for no discernible reason."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, unlike the people at the ticket and gate counters."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by nearly two hours, causing me to have to miss my connection. Though they knew for hours that the flight would be delayed, they did not have enough people working at the check in counters. There were not that many people in line, but I had to wait more than 20 minutes before being able to speak to someone. The representative informed me that I would have to be rebooked onto a later connection because the delay would cause my to miss my original connecting flight, and when I told her that I needed an earlier time to avoid missing a meeting, she just said "I have nothing earlier." She was barely even apologetic. Then she was unable to print my boarding pass for my connection. I had a 2 hour and 45 minute layover in Houston whereas in my original flight it was 1 hour."
Pros: "Frequent communication about the issue to keep passengers updated. Flight crew and gate boarding support were excellent"
Cons: "Plane's tire needed to be replaced. I was irritated because at one point they were saying they needed to fly a tire into JAX which seems ridiculous. They ended up finding a tire once the day shift arrived. I would have expected inspections of planes after flights and for basic replacement parts to be located across their network."
Cons: "4 hour delay. Maintenance issue. We were told Only one maintenance person covering the entire airport"
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "I paid extra for an economy plus seat and they gave it away. I had to sit in a middle seat."
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Pros: "All went very smoothly. Even arrived early"
Pros: "Thumbs up"
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Pros: "Good in-flight entertainment using the app. Decent staff overall."
Cons: "On our booking through Kayak, this was only listedas an Air canada flight, however, when I couldn't check in online and phoned Air canada (which took 30min), they said it was operated by United and had to check in on united.com. Why was there. o mention of this?? It took me phoning to find out what airline I was flying with! Also, a United staff person told us we didn't need to touch our bags in calgary en route tonour final Saskatoon destination, which was wrong."
Pros: "The planes were small which were fine because there was still enough leg room.."
Cons: "Sears could be a little wider not everyone is small frame"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Cons: "With maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a name discrepancy on a passenger. Not fair to keep everyone waiting for one person"
Cons: "United did not service the final destination so they transferred luggage to another airline and then washed their hands of it. When one of4 remained lost they did not help at all!"
Cons: "No snacks offered on the plane"
Pros: "They boarded is quickly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed on runway for over an hour. When the passenger next to me asked the lead flight attnd about her connecting flight the attnd was extremely rude and of no help. Any ? was answered with "well just look at your united airways app". Then later I asked what gate we were coming in on and her reply was "the capt just said it". I replied saying "sorry I didn't hear it" and again the flight attnd answered "look on your UA app". I don't usually fly UA so I didn't have it. Overall she was short, snarky and rude with ever reasonable question asked. No one was rude to her but her attitude was shocking. I travel quite often and have never seen an antd speak or act this way to passengers. I understand things get stressful, but I def won't be flying UA again if this is the way they allow flight attnds to speak to customers. She way beyond rude and lazy and I hope the girl she was training doesn't pick up those traits either."
Pros: "This was the most smoothest overall trip I have ever had flying! I loved the new plane (from JAX) and the leg room since I'm 6'5 and it was very comfortable. Everyone involved in the process were very professional as well."
Pros: "crew personable"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
Pros: "I liked being able to move my assigned seat to a window seat"
Cons: "My trip was supposed to be Newark to Jacksonville on Sunday, Jan 31 and stay until Saturday, Feb 6. I booked my trip in September. When I got the the airport (2 hours before my flight) I went to the kiosk to print my ticket, after entering my confirmation code and last name the computer informed me that I require assistance so I flagged down one of the people working the counter, where I was promptly informed that I do not have a seat on the plane. The plane was overbooked. My number one question was how is it possible that I am the one getting bumped if I booked my flight almost 5 months ago?!?! The person then informed me that I can either go to the gate and hope someone doesn't show up and get a seat on that plane, or she can book me on a flight to Tampa then a puddle jumper to Jacksonville. I decided to take the Tampa option (without being informed that it was going to change my simple two hour flight into a 9 hour ordeal). I headed to my gate and took a look at my tickets only to find out that I have a 3 hour layover in Tampa... Wtf am I supposed to do in Tampa for three hours?!? Anywho, instead of getting to Jacksonville at 12, I got there at 6:30 losing an entire day. Now for the trip home. I'll start with I did get home in the appropriate amount of time, on my original booked flight. However, I was forced to check my bag. And not like go to the carousel when you de-board check your bag( which I would prefer)... Get off the plane and wait in the vestibule with everyone else who had to check their bags for your luggage to be retrieved from the plane and brought up to the vestibule.. It became a mosh pit of ooh! That's my bag! ( picture a bunch of random adults playing mother may I with the airport staff as the mother). Then back to the actual flight, the attendant didn't start coming around asking if we wanted drinks or snacks until more than half way through the flight meaning you had about 10 minutes to enjoy whatever you ordered until the pilot asked you to raise the tables. Then also I couldn't understand a single thing that was said over the loudspeaker ( it sounded like they recycled the speakers that ny metro decided were no longer good enough for their subway cars). And finally, the seats that were so narrow both in space between you and the person in front of you and next to you is an absolute joke. I suppose if you were to get on the plane and sit completely still in an upright position for two hours you would be perfectly comfortable, however seeing as most people don't do that it was extremely uncomfortable. All in all I do not reccomend flying United. Ever. Very upsetting experience. There is a reason it was my cheapest option."
Pros: "Fast and efficient. Definitely no frills."
