Friendly, courteous and professional staff. Clean planes.
Pros: "Everything went as planned."
Cons: "USB or power outlets."
Cons: "If the flight is over Nigara , a brief commentary on Nigara will enthuse the passengers."
Pros: "Crew perks and helpful staff"
Cons: "Short time between transfers and delay"
Cons: "Canceling flights with no notice and rescheduling made me lose a day"
Cons: "The security gate was very long and slow"
Cons: "The same flight leaving an hour and a half after ours left before ours. I don’t understand how exactly that works the gates were directly next to one another."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Stop charging for carry on baggage for outside of Canada flights."
Pros: "The efficiency of flying."
Cons: "This is the second time I’m paying for luggage, I once again surprised when I checked in & wasn’t allowed to have my carryon. Disappointing."
Pros: "Everything was alright until I missed my flight to Montreal because the connecting flight was late"
Cons: "If I actually made it to mtl, stuck in Toronto"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I love the complimentary craft beer!"
Cons: "Would have been nice if we weren’t 2 hours late. Or if the people working at the gate were nice. Or if our bags weren’t hidden in some part of baggage claim with no announcement on where to find them. I’ll never fly porter again."
Pros: "Very polite"
Cons: "Nothing. This’s my first trip with Porter. Excellent in everything."
Cons: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, we arrived at 9:00 for a 10:10 flight, and so were not allowed to try to go through customs to make the flight. When we asked if they could put us on the next flight and we'd pay the $100 plus dollars each to do so, as we realized that we were at fault for arriving late, we were told that they wouldn't do this for us because we had booked through Kayak and not through Porter directly. We were then told that we would have to pay full price for new tickets, over $800. I can't afford to pay another $800 and told them so. I realized we were late, but to be told that they could do nothing for us was horrible. They finally said they'd do it after we told them about our horrendous experience with them on our flight to New York, but then wouldn't let us take our carry on luggage on the flight and charged us a further $60 to put it in the hold. We were then told that they could only get us as far as Toronto, (AFTER we'd paid the extra money) and we'd have to find another way home from there. We live in Ottawa, that's a 6 hour drive, and neither I nor my son drive. It was an absolute nightmare getting back from Toronto, and we didn't get home until 1:00 a.m. Shame on you Kayak and Porter airlines. Our flight to New York was a nightmare (see my other email) and so was our flight home. I know you won't do anything about this and don't care about your customers, but I can assure you that I will be posting as many negative things that I can on social media, and will tell everyone I know never to fly with Porter airlines. Shame on you."
Pros: "Hassle free"
Cons: "Since it's a small bombardier the leg space is pretty restricted.. only adjustable for short flights"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours and I received no notification of this delay. I checked in on the Porter website and provided my email and phone number to notify me of any chances. I took a $100 taxi ride as opposed to the slower $15 train ride thinking the flight was on time. Absolutely not impressed"
Pros: "we finally got there"
Cons: "first time we flew porter air. flight was one hour late, then connecting porter flight was also late. they ran out of snacks.....................ugh!! we were never told any info as to why flights were late, no announcements at all."
Pros: "Porter was great, bumped us up to an earlier flight because we had no checked baggage"
Pros: "Was offered a earlier flight that was available when we arrived for check in"
Cons: "I thought I had paid for baggage in advance but obviously there was a glitch in the payment process so HATED the cost for 2 bags. We traveled with 6 other airlines within Europe and none charged this exorbitant amount... NOT VERY PLEASED Check in person wasn’t very pleasant to deal with. I think she was having a bad day!!! All other staff and flight attendants were pleasant and good to deal with."
Pros: "After taking a chance on an airline I had never heard of, we were pleasantly surprised! Although there was a weather related delay, they accommodated us on an earlier flight."
Cons: "The plane was a bit loud"
Cons: "Wasn’t warned on website about applying for ETA. Airline didn’t accommodate me in this situation and proceed to charge me $100 to change my flight."
Pros: "The courteous and helpful nature of both the ground staff and the crew. The Coffee was super."
Cons: "No Complaints whatsoever"
Pros: "Snack selection and free alcohol is good and unique; Porter is great for these short trips."
Cons: "I like the comfortable seats and the 2-2 configuration (no middle seats) but hate the no overhead space."
Cons: "Flight took off 30 min late"
Pros: "Convenience of the airport location which is steps from downtown Toronto. Friendly crew and descent snacks."
Cons: "Porter flights are almost always delayed. I take them pretty often and they are almost never on time, especially the late afternoon / evenings flights. This time the plane had some problems with AC and was too hot."
Pros: "Too short a flight that no entertainment is necessary"
Pros: "Landed on time/early!! Super fast boarding and deplaning. Good service. Free snacks and drinks served in glasses. Good space."
Cons: "N/A- it was a great flight"
Pros: "They keep us updated at all times about the delays"
Cons: "1 hour delay!!!! And no storm"
Pros: "Good service. Thanks"
Pros: "I have flown on Porter numerous time but this was the first for my family. They enjoyed the Porter lounge and convenience of flying from the Toronto island right into EWR. We were able to take the NJ Train right to Penn Station (NYC) faster than any taxi."
Pros: "Either my mistake or a computer glitch gave me a ticket for an evening flight when I was looking for a morning flight. I was able to avoid switching fees by showing up at the airport for the first flight, and I was able to be seated comfortably. The staff at the check in was very nice and helpful. There is no entertainment so I gave that a one. On the short flight that I was on there was a choice of snacks, I chose almonds, thank you very much for the almonds and beverage. Happy travels, everyone!"
Cons: "They wanted me to check my carry on which could easily have fit under the seat in front of me."
Pros: "I was so happy to have been bumped up to an earlier flight so easily! The staff was very friendly and the trip was very enjoyable"
Cons: "Dirty toilet. Flight before us by Porter got delayed...all flights after also got delayed. ..poor logistics and no proper staffing at Newark airport."
Pros: "Great service! Attentive staff. Fabulous free lounges with drinks and snacks. Cappuccino in real cups in Toronto. Free wine and beer on flights. Real glasses on flights and in Toronto lounge. Gate agents were friendly and so helpful. Nrwark had a nice smaller lounge. Lots of legroom on flights."
Cons: "You have to be aware that these are props, so flights do get delayed or cancelled due to weather. Both of our flights were delayed. But they were very up front about it. Also put us on earlier flights automatically which was nice."
Pros: "- Staff/crew are exceedingly pleasant, although not necessarily 100% helpful - Free beer and great snack options onboard are a nice departure (see what I did there??) from the usual in-flight experience. - When they significantly messed up my entire first day of travel, without complaint they sent me a voucher for future travel."
Cons: "- My first flight was delayed and I wasn't notified until an hour beforehand (even though the flight was delayed due to an incoming flight they knew well ahead of an hour beforehand would not be there). I could have arrived at the airport later and paid less for my parking. - I was told by a gate agent I would still make my very tight connection (spoiler alert - I did not), so I did not ask to be rebooked on a later connection immediately. - Once it became clear I would likely miss my connection due to being delayed after boarding, I asked again about it, this time of a flight attendant. I was told there were 23 daily flights a day to my connecting city (there are not) and it would be fine. We sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes after landing waiting for a gate and the last hope of making that connection was gone. - Upon arrival in Toronto it turns out my connecting flight was cancelled and everyone had to be rebooked. The very pleasant customer service rep told me not to worry! They automatically rebook everyone and I've been scheduled to leave 10 flights later - the following morning. At 12:45 p.m. their best solution was a flight at 8:30 the next morning (later canceled). When I calmly explained that was not ideal, I was immediately given the "last seat out today" on a 9:30 flight (later delayed then canceled). I'm not sure who they were saving that for, but it is unacceptable to rebook people for the next day when they have free seats. I was resigned to spending 9 hours in the terminal (literally just a room with a few snacks) because I was also on standby for every flight until then, and fortunately after checking in again 5 hours later, I was handed a ticket for the flight leaving in 15 minutes. If I had followed Porter's original plan, I have no idea when I would have made it, as I already mentioned both of those other flights were later canceled and I've already gone over how Porter rebooks passengers. - I found out after I spent $20 Canadian on a sandwich and chips via the Porter website that they are supposed to give meal vouchers in a significant delay, but I was not offered one. - On the way back, I saw myself being set up for the same rigmarole. My first flight was delayed more than a half hour, leaving me with a very tight connection. Thankfully, I arrived at the airport earlier and was able to catch an earlier flight because as it turns out, the connecting flight I would have missed due to the delay ended up being canceled. I can only imagine what the rebooking process would have been, so I am glad Porter is accommodating about switching flights. I imagine they do so to save them the rebooking later, but still, it is not something all airlines will do. - Both flights out to Montreal were incredibly hot. I tend to run cold and I was sweating. The flights home on a warmer day were fine, so I'm not sure what was going on there."
Pros: "I missed my flight. In checking desk, my ticket transferred to the next flight for free :) Good selection of free drinks and snacks on board"
Cons: "- one and half hour delay - I left many necessary stuff behind to be under 9 kg carry on bagges which never get weighted. However, many people brought heavy backpacks full of stuff on board."
Pros: "When we went to check in counter we were early enough to get on the flight before ours and we arrived hour and half earlier Make sure your carry on bag is 9kgs or less or you will have to pay to check it"
Pros: "Friendly accommodating crew, always great service"
Cons: "Delays - there are always delays with porter"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew. Also I had plenty of leg room & a real surprise was free drinks even on a short flight."
Cons: "Each of my flights was late."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight and they did not help me find a place to stay as it was all their fault. Worst customer service!"
Pros: "Our 1 hour flight to Toronto City was delayed by 2 hours due to weather issues in Newark, but we got to enjoy the Porter lounge (free drinks and crackers)."
Pros: "They served beverages in REAL glasses, in their waiting room they serve FREE coffee"
Pros: "No issues. Made it easy for me."
Cons: "Nothing. -all good"
Cons: "Seats did not recline at all"
Cons: "After my flight with porter airline my souvenirs that were glass were smashed.. I have been on many flights around the states with those exact souvenirs and nothing. I don't think they treat your bags with care at all"
Pros: "I was allowed to go on an earlier flight which enabled me to go out to dinner with my husband for his birthday."
Cons: "I didn't like the pressurization of the cabin. I find that I have a hard time with my ears pressurizing on Porter flights. I flew earlier in the day with no problem with my ears then I take the Porterr flight and my ears won't clear at all. I feel this type of aircraft doesn't pressurize well."
Cons: "We were unable to rebook or use flights as s credit so when plans changed even though it was months away we were just out the money"
Pros: "Availability and check in service"
Cons: "Flight to US was late, returning to Canada flight crew seemed like not courteous and too noisy in side of the flight."
Pros: "Pretty much everything was good on the flight and afterwards, even with a delay it was a pleasant experience...."
Cons: "The only problem we're the gate agents in Newark, they disappeared for 20 minutes and no one was at the gate even after the original boarding time had come and gone. When she finally came in there was neither an apology or even an acknowledgement that I was there. 5 min after after she Arrived I had to get her to stop what she was doin to ask if si would make my other flight , all she said was " not sure" no sign of even wanting to help. She was awful"
Pros: "I especially love the lounge in Toronto - comfortable seating (some with access to electrical outlets), a bank of Mac computers available for passengers to use, free coffee, cappuccino, espresso, cookies, soda, water, free Wi-Fi,..Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Pros: "Stewardesses were so kind and friendly on this flight, it was a very positive experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 75 mins. We were at Newark longer than we were on the flight."
Pros: "quiet plane"
Cons: "2.5 hours delayed flight without prompt notifications. Honest and prompt flight-delay alerts. Updates for delay came *every* half-hour. No opportunity to schedule ANYTHING based truthful delay estimations and the lack of timely communication."
Cons: "Bags didn't get loaded, plane delayed. Poor customer service."
Pros: "The variety of food for purchase was nice!"
Cons: "THERE WAS NO WIFI ON A 6HR FLIGHT!!! omg its 2019. mind blown."
Pros: "Flight and service was very good"
Cons: "Crew showed up late and we subsequently were delayed."
Pros: "Seats and plane condition"
Pros: "Flight went extremely smooth. No issues during the layover they even got us an earlier flight to our layover destination, giving us more time between flights."
Pros: "TV in seat, new plane. I liked nothing else about this crappy airline."
Cons: "Delayed because they couldn't fit the luggage on the plane, had to pay extra for my family to sit together, worst service ever on board, the slowest old ladies pushing the cart, 90 minutes late in perfect weather, took forever to get the baggage."
Cons: "Always late, overall service is appalling. Only reason they are around is due to protective policies of the Canadian government"
Pros: "Our connecting flight was cancelled due to weather. That is truly out of the airline’s control. What is in their control is communicating the status of the flight with us. When we checked in they took email addresses and cell phone numbers for status updates. We never received any updates. Consequently we didn’t know the flight had been cancelled until it was too late to make an adequate adjustment. On top of that we had to deal with the worst customer service rep in the world at the ticket booth when we struggled to make alternate plans. Completely unsatisfactory experience."
Cons: "One leg of the flight was cancelled only a few hours before take-off. Huge inconvenience with no remedies. Will not ever fly them again."
Cons: "Information provided on delays was limited and information on connecting by flights was incorrect"
Pros: "Cleanliness and accessibility to my nearest airport at the time I need it."
Cons: "Children are crying through the flights."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous"
Cons: "We have to buy our own food"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked so I was on standby even though I paid 1 week in advance Bag was missing. Shitty experience"
Cons: "The delay from Toronto to Newark which makes me pay extra money for my parking."
Pros: "Gate customer service (Jaslon) at Newark Airport was great. When my flight from Newark to Toronto was late and I was going to miss my connection, Jaslon was very helpful by rebooking me on a better flight and having my bags transferred immediately. Second checked bag fee was reasonable,"
Cons: "You pay for everything - snacks, headphones, food. Slow counter service at check-in at Newark"
Pros: "The people at the front desk in gander were great"
Cons: "There were delayed at every stop. I had a 9 hour delay because the flight attendant had food poisoning. How was there not a replacement?"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."
Pros: "Inexpensive, got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "All food and headphones cost extra on a 6 hour international flight."
Pros: "Other than the usher at the check-in desk, all other Air Canada staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Usher at check-in desk had terrible communication skills. He had an antagonist tone that set an aggressive tone for those just trying to comply to his directions."
Pros: "Overall a good experience. Had to pay for food but it was quite good so I didn't mind. Supposedly the crew were short staffed but I found them attentive and helpful and to be honest I believe the people who complained may have been a little precious."
Pros: "I appreciated the early flight, that it was a direct flight, ability to make connection and then complete my journey in one long day. It was on time, smooth flight. Appreciated the offer of water regularly during the flight."
Cons: "Surprised that there is no longer even a small complimentary snack offered."
Cons: "Air Canada is always late to board, take off, or to depart from the aircraft for the most random reasons. Every time I fly with apr Canada I can never depart or arrive in time; it's always a problem."
Cons: "3 months to refund a cancelled flight is unacceptable"
Cons: "i was told if i donot check my self in icant bord he was very rude I am hanNdy cap he did not care over 77years old"
Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. AC put us in a hotel for the night. Thanks for the $15 dinner voucher. Almost paid for the salad. Then we had to get up at 530am to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough. And the last flight is over sold so we have to stay the night in Toronto. Then don't offer the 9pm flight. Passengers have other commitments in their life's. We don't need AC to just hold us over for the night because one of their flights is have empty."
Cons: "Wifi didnt work at all on the plane to and from new jersey from toronto. I did not receive an online boarding pass once i checked in online.. i was panicked the whole day upon boarding my flight because i was limited with the time i had to wait in line. The staff on the toronto side were so distasteful and rude, never received a smile once. Not to mention they confiscated my 300$ face wash system.. I understand now the restrictions to bringing over 120ml bottles but they refused to even pour out half the contents (which they took into consideration on the toronto side) my bottles were only 125ml.... what a joke this airline is. i was flying alone and hadnt travelled from an airport in 15 years- emails i received DID NOT specify the restrictions of what you're allowed to bring in carry ons. how is someone new to this experience supposed to know?????????they simply told me there is a website i can go to to see the restrictions... but that website is not mentioned ANYWHERE. The airport staff were extremely rude and cold while ripping apart my bags because of toiletry bottles. I have an extreme anxiety disorder that made me have a panic attack during the baggage inspect and I was given looks as if i was crazy. absolutely disgusting people working in the airport environments. They caused me a world of stress. I will never in my life fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Didn't like the delay Had to check carry on"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "It's on time"
Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."
Pros: "There was an excellent agent during boarding. I didn't catch his name but he was a tall dark skin gentlemen and he went over and beyond to assit me. His kindness left a lasting impression on me. I only wish I had his name, because he deserves to be noticed for his excellent service."
Pros: "Early and luggage delivered quickly"
Cons: "The flight was considerably delayed, so that we missed our connection, the airport personnel at Newark sent us all over the place attempting to pass off the problem onto somebody else- even encouraging passengers to go to Montreal and "figure it out from there." Bags were taken off the plane and then put back on...the subsequent flight (the next day) was also delayed, and required half he plane to sprint through Montreal to their connections. It was not worth it. Especially considering I tried to call Air Canada for some of my refund and the number they gave me was a fax line."
Pros: "seamless flight"
Cons: "movie choices were poor"
Cons: "Flight out of Newark delayed so we were going to miss the connection. We were rebooked to fly via London but we lost 6 hours in Rome. Air Canada attendant at Newark said the flight was always delayed and passengers regularly needed to be rebooked. You should recommend air Canada cancels selling this itinerary or bringing the Newark flight forward to de risk any delays"
Pros: "Flight was good.dela"
Cons: "Delay for both ways"
Pros: "Boarding by zones worked efficiently and boarding was quite smooth. Flight was smooth as well."
Cons: "First time flying this airline and I was surprised to see TVs on the plane though they had a smaller selection than other airlines. They made an announcement at the gate before boarding that anyone with a US passport had to complete an info card. I feel that was an inefficient way to collect that information as people who arrived after the announcement did not complete it. The card seemed a bit pointless."
Pros: "Entertainment system is good"
Cons: "Crew was an hour late arriving at airport so flight was delayed. No food, not even a snack, on a 5+ hour flight is not acceptable."
Pros: "I was surprised at how much leg room there was. Also, there were a lot of entertainment choices for such a short flight."
Cons: "They didn't clearly call zones, so I wasn't sure when I could board and ended up being one of the last people to get on the plane."
Pros: "Great crew. But aircraft had mechanical issues."
Cons: "Stuck on plane for 90 minutes before take off."
Pros: "Really took advantage by jacking the prices on return flight changes caused by their cancellation of outbound due to weather Because I had two one way flights, the changes required for the return flight were my problem"
Cons: "Ripoff 500 and two hours of hold time to get acrewed"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Delayed for 4hrs and less than adequate meal voucher for $10 for dinner? Very disappointed and I'm a long time AC customer."
Pros: "Time is way to early and specially When you have to wait inside the plane for 45 minutes because there is traffic for landing that is inconvenience for the passenger."
Cons: "Very very bad customer service. I was flying to Rome from NYC on Friday night and my flight was cancelled. I was just notified by a text saying that there was a change in my flight. After calling customer service, I was forced to take the afternoon flight on Friday as I had to be in Rome for a wedding on Saturday. Even if I was rushed to the airport (my call with the customer service took place at 12.00 and the flight was after 2.30 hours...) and cancelled all my appointments and had to take special permission to leave from work, I was never offered any upgrades or refunds while at the same time the attitude of the rep was take the change or leave it. At the airport, I called again the customer service to understand better the cancellation policy based on their website and their response was to apply on the website and maybe I would get a little bit of money and they don't offer upgrades for these kind of situations. They indicated that it is up to gate manager to decide for upgrades, which when I tried this approach I was notified that the customer service should have flag me appropriately....I don't really care about the refund or the upgrade as at the end I was able to reach my destination on time; however, it was extremely disappointing to see a whole organization that does not take into consideration their customers time and ignore any descent customer service to them. Simply, never again."
Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."
Cons: "It was a mess from start to finish. Ridiculous lines. Ridiculous covid rules. They have us all shoulder to shoulder in tiny waiting areas then suddenly we get on line to board and have to stand six feet apart and then on the plane we are squashed all together anyway. It’s all so stupid. Not having the ability to get a boarding pass from the online app or printed made me have to wait in a line 300 people long to access the kiosk and then half of them were down. Then another line maybe 500 people long just to be allowed up the escalator to where there is another line to go through exuding checks. Nuts!!! My flight was an hour and I spent three hours online getting to it!!!"
Cons: "The old business class interior pretty dated"
Cons: "Everything. My booking confirmation was with United Airlines only to get to the airport to find that they had subcontracted the flight to a budget airline. Eurowings. The food very substandard. If you were on a basic ticket, you were only entitled to water and no food. So people are travelling on long haul flights without being offered anything as standard. Passengers on these tickets were not aware that they would not be served.any food which is probably unethical. They offer to sell you food if on a basic ticket"
Pros: "When it finally took off the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Plane was delayed coming in, then we were told we were waiting on catering. Then it became a weather issue. Then we boarded. Weather got worse so they took us off. The second time we boarded and were told we’re waiting on catering who wasn’t on site then had to go through airport security. After 3HOURS , we were asked to leave the plane. For rebounding the next morning with no explanation. The next morning the flight was delayed an additional 3HOURS. We were never given food in all this time of a wait. This became an 18+ hour delay. We definitely missed our connection and they rebooked it."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."
Pros: "The crew were competent, friendly and helpful. The back of seat entertainment was very good, with a lot of new releases. When the flight was delayed the pilot did come around and speak to passengers, which I appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we were not given any information about what was going on."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave at noon. We were delayed for 2.5 hours due to incoming flights, which were delayed. Finally they told us to board at 4 pm. Once everyone was on board, they told us we "lost" our pilot and we had to get off the plane. Thirty minutes later, they "found" a new pilot and boarded us on the plane. We then sat on the plane for 4 hours because there was a system issue and the pilots didn't have our flight plan. At 8 pm, the pilot got off the plane, and new pilots came aboard. Finally, the plane left at 9:30 pm. We never received food vouchers, water, snacks during the delay. The pilot insisted the last delay was due to a system issue, the crew told us it was because of weather. In the end, I think they were all lying to us and they had no intention of leaving on time and just made excuses. We lost a whole day in Bermuda because of their lies. I will never fly United again."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and tried to help me!"
Cons: "My seat was changed 24 hours before the flight inexplicably from an aisle seat to a center seat which is problematic for me. I will most likely not book through Kayak or Lufthansa again on a United codeshare because of this experience."
Pros: "Decent flight, can’t complain, pretty much empty."
Cons: "laberithine process to get my boarding pass. Booked on Kayak with last minute on a Luthanasa flight operated by United. Basically had to call all three in order to get my boarding passes as the website didn’t work. Really confusing."
Pros: "Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight"
Cons: "Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work."
Pros: "Entertainment and leg room brilliant!"
Cons: "Good was disgusting"
Pros: "Getting back to the UK"
Cons: "When booking with Lufthansa I don't then expect to be on a united airlines flight Terrible customer service and substandard old uncomfortable aircraft"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, we got drink/service options often for a large flight."
Cons: "— A couple who had two middle seats apart disrupted our whole boarding by trying to persuade everyone around us to give up an aisle or window seat so they could sit together. I felt pressured to give in which made me mad. I wondered if they paid for Basic Economy and then still got their way on seats. — WiFi is just crazy expensive at $32. Even as a business traveler I felt guilty buying it. I wish I had seen pricing before the flight and/or understood if I could’ve gotten a discount for purchasing in advance. — Didn’t hav the snack I wanted...it’s a long 6 hour flight — I wish there were more food options."
Pros: "I guess the flight was ok. The pilot knew where he was going"
Cons: "It can't be true that they have not even a small blanket for someone who kindly ask and then when the flight is over you see them every where and unopened in first class. Pretzels,... Seriously..???. These airlines are n need of a real policy that lets them know it is money we are expending when we take a flight. And taking the carry-on bag. AFTER YOU PAID TO HABE IT WITH YOU?? Unacceptable. And not seating people together after you call and re call and talk to 3 different persons... The last one just says: I will see what can be done and then ignores you... Not NICE. Please remember that many airlines have come and go. Those are some of the reasons."
Pros: "Improve the food and be ahead of the best"
Pros: "Newark Airport is great and the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Seats were small with not much leg room"
Pros: "Brisk, efficient cabin crew served food and drink quickly then left us alone to sleep."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 75 minutes "awaiting plane". 20 minute wait when finally arrived at Heathrow for steps down to bus to take us to terminal."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The staff had no meal for me despite me having ordered one. The entertainment system wasn't working and neither was the wifi to allow you to watch on your own device. Old planes with uncomfortable seats. Really poor airline."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "First the plane arrived late so we could not board at our scheduled time. Then when the plane arrived they said we could not used that plane. Then we had to wait 3 hours before we could get another plane. The new plane was also on the other end of the airport. This was a challenge while traveling with my mother who requires assistance."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved upon (less sugar and carbs, more fresh vegetables/fruits)"
Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "This was a direct red eye flight to Madrid"
Cons: "I paid 1308$ for the tickets, I wasn't expecting first class experience but honestly I was just shocked. First off the flight attendant was so rude, whenever I asked for something or said thank you she would just stare at me and not respond. I mean I get it, it's a red eye flight I wasn't expecting anyone to be chipper. But honestly that was especially rude having to deal with her for the 6 hour trip to Madrid. Second the food was especially disgusting. The chicken was in this white sauce that looked like discharge and if taste like rubber. The bread was hard to bite into. Everything was so stale and tasted so bad I wondered how long they had that food sitting there. My last trip to Europe I flew Swiss air to Italy they had the best customer service and the food didn't taste like I was eating cardboard in jail. I am never flying united airlines to Europe again. It is too long of a trip for subpar service."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2.5 hours. Food at airport terminal specific to United ridiculously expensive, particularly for a family, e.g.. $8.50 for French fries, etc."
Pros: "Nothing again!!!"
Cons: "Having to fly to LHR to get home, even that flight was delayed. Typical United methinks."
Cons: "No communication when extreme turbulence was happening. I thought i was dying, i cried as well as the person in my section. The lady behind me appeared to be praying."
Cons: "For an international flight, there should be more amenities like charger etc."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 4 hours. When I spoke to the person at he gate when we had to deboard, She was patient in explaining but didn't seem like she wanted to answer my questions in front of everyone else. I walked over to the United customer service desk. Wow. No sense of empathy whatsoever. They gave me the answers to my questions but I almost felt like I had done wrong asking what my options were. Never had an issue with Lufthansa. United customer service is a different story. I will try my best to avoid Lufthansa flights operated by United from now on."
Pros: "We went through four scales showing weight complience only to be over the limit each time we got to the final check. And we were accompanied by an United person each time. The only logical reason is that the final scale shows more. They had no idea of how to treat a passager courteously You could see that they are trained to always be right and cougt with their offul reputation they were asked to be better, but they didn't know what better means. The food could not be fed to a dog. The absolute cheapest ever. Two tiniest pieces of chicken, one piece of bread and a sort of pasta sald with raisin uneatable. The service in Paris was better because United couldn't destroy it like in Ny"
Pros: "It's was a straight threw flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on the way there and on the way back. I checked the flights to see if they where running on time they said they where. Then I'm told the flight was delayed first 15 min then an hour. The Flight back was even worse the flight was suppose to leave Saint Louis at 3:30 to Newark was delayed 2hours and 50 minutes I checked the flight status said it was going to be on time. If I had know it wasn't going to be on time My son wouldn't have had to wait at the air port as long as He did"
Pros: "The person sitting next to me...that were pleasant."
Cons: "That when I explained being hearing impaired the boarding attendant said my carry on needed to be checked. I didn't understand her and proceeded to the loading blank. Then when boarding the attendant informed me. I explained I checked my bag in the airport compartment tester and it was fine. I also asked the attendant at the counter. She confirmed it was fine. Still smiling until the snack pretzels were passed out. When I didn't hear the attendant's question, in spite of telling her I was hearing impaired, she threw her hand up rudely and just continued on to other customers. When boarding I watched orhers board with the same size bag as mine, and wondered if telling someone you can't hear gives them the right to inform you at the gate that your bag needs to be checked?"
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, causing major inconveniences, especially as I was on my way to a funeral Only compensation was a food/beverage voucher equal to the value of 5 Swiss Francs, enough to buy a bottle of water despite HOURS wasted"
Pros: "The flight itself was great.. However the experience at the airport was terrible.. After placing several calls prior to my departure date to confirm that my 40 inch TV was ok for transportation , it wasn't until I got to the airport to find out that I was unable to take the TV or the TV stand.. I live in Philadelphia and had nowhere to leave it causing me to give it to a stranger in order to make my flight . I am very distraught that the information indicating there was an embargo restricting the transportatione of TV greater 32 inches or boxes to Montego Bay was not given during any of those calls.. I don't understand why that information was not sent in an email prior.. On top of that I placed a call to customs in Montego Bay and was adviced that the embargo is enforced by the airline not customs... If I could some how get some answers regarding this I would appreciate it..."
Pros: "The Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The airport was horrible. Hard to get to the C concourse. "train" is TOO SMALL. It barely fits 10 in each car. International transfer of bags was Horrible, and very far apart from where you get the bags. Poorly planned or not at all planned. We barely had time to make the flight with 1 1/2 hours to transfer and would have missed our flight if it wasn't for a trolley driver who took us from security to the gate. There is no power at the seats. The plane is old and seats were very uncomfortable. Yeah, this was the worst flight."
Pros: "Little to add."
Cons: "The plane was delayed incoming. Then boarding was interminably long because of overbooking and no overhead room for luggage. It took precious time to load passengers 1 group at a time while bags were checked. Once airborne I saw I only had 10 minutes or less to make my connection in Newark, which I inevitably missed. Poorly scheduled. Many passengers missed connections. It would have been much quicker and easier to advise passengers to check bags at the gate BEFORE the plane arrived knowing it was overbooked. I'm very disappointed in how the entire boarding was handled given the time constraints."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing for this flight. Delayed, rude crew, seat assignment mess up, etc."
Cons: "No food in a previous 4 hour flight, plus being early at gate, plus travel to airport. A lot of time without eating, expensive flights and no food. As a matter of fact only 1 tiny bitty snack for the entire flight. Very uncomfortable plane! Asking to pay for entertainment Direct TV, are you kidding me??? Those tickets are not cheap and you can't provide entertainment? Charging for everything extra is outrageous. Crew was a bit rude. And the people at the counter at the gate -very rude and unhelpful. Flight delayed on Christmas night and no refund for all that time wasted without being with the family. I had seats together with my husband and then seats were removed, asked to see an agent when printed boarding pass and then got separate seats. You are a joke and do not respect the money we pay and prearranged seat assignments. United you are a terrible airline, please strive for better customer service. You charge a lot."
Cons: "I was in the center bulkhead seat with an very oversized man on the aisle seat with a "service dog". It was not a service dog in the sense that it was all over the place--on my feet and in the aisle where it tripped a stewardess more than once and she told him it couldn't be in the aisle. So it pushed over to my seat because the guy was just to big to share his legroom. It shredded napkins the man dropped which a trained dog would not do. it bounced his tray table up causing him to drop his two vodkas. I had to have the stewardess tell him to move his arm and body out of my seat so I could stow my tray for landing. When waiting for my ride outside the dog was off lease and ran into the pickup lanes where the man had to chase him down. A true service dog would never behave like that."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Cons: "I upgrade to premium economy. This gave me a seat with legroom -but one that did NOT RECLINE ... on a night flight. I am very unhappy. It was not made clear when I upgraded (must have been very small print). I feel ripped off"
Pros: "Great movie selection, easy short distance gate connection"
Cons: "Being delayed on the tarmac for over 1hrs and we arrived 35 min early!!"
Cons: "This was the flight from hell. Terrible uncomfortable seats. Could not get the monitor turned off and out of my eyes. Plus we were delayed 4 hours in this crappy airport only to get on a really crappy plane. We were supposed to arrive in Tampa before 10 but wound up getting in like a red eye at 1230 am. Lost out on our ride home and we were so exhausted. I cried most of this flight home 2 1/2 hour flight. Nice staff but crappy plane. I am waiting to get a call to get reimbursed for my loss of time at work and the missed ride home."
Pros: "They double booked my seat and forced me to sit in an emergency exit row. Pretty sure this is against FAA regulation."
Pros: "El viaje de newark a san juan por united fue excelente. Por la linea aerea de American Airlines terriblemente FATAL. Habia un problema con el avion o la torre del vuelo miami hacia san juan PR. Nos ofrecieron estadia en un hotel supuestamente ellos corrian con los gastos ya q se atraso el vuelo y no fue culpa de ningun pasajero segun nos dijo una señorita del counter, resulta ser q el hotel fue el piso del aeropuerto de miami x 8 horas!!! Wow a la verdad q nos vieron la cara de bobos y nos cojieron de bobos tambien. Q trato mas injusto. No volveremos a viajar por AMERICAN AIRLINES asi mismo le dejaremos saber a todo el mundo el trato de esta linea con los pasajeros. Gracias a esto nos agravamos la espalda, costillas. Por culpa de ellos por tratarnos como basura. Eso no se hace!!!! Despues q estabamos sentados en el avion el piloto no llegaba y nos tuvieron q bajar del avion, esperar a que llegara otro piloto para volvernos a montar en el avion!!! Q mala coordinacion!! Esto es una falta de respeto!! Esta linea AMERICAN AIRLINES ES UNA PORQUERIA!!! No volvemos a viajar por esta linea JAMAS!!! Irresponsables!!"
Cons: "Nothing at all !!!! With AMERICAN AIRLINES THE WORST!!! We will NEVER travel by this linea aerea. Son una gran Porqueria!!"
