Pros: "wasn't able to incline my seat..."
Cons: "being able to incline my seat..."

Pros: "Strong crew service is the highlight of flying Air New Zealand. Plane comfort is good, with nice ambient lighting, decent seats and reasonably spacious toilets. At least for now, they have in-seat entertainment screens with lots of current offerings. Our flight had free wi-fi, a real plus."
Cons: "Boarding with Air New Zealand at Heathrow was complex and poorly organised when compared to the smooth and efficient process at LAX. This has been the case each time I have flown this same route with this airline."

Pros: "The seat was spacious and the crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and made you feel special. The food was great! The burger was tremendous! The films very up to date."
Cons: "The seat is comfortable but doesnt recline enough, I dont like the fact that you need to flip the seat to get it flat, when is it flat its rock hard! Good on AirNZ for providing the foam mattress topper it helps. ButOnce its flat you cant really watch TV."

Cons: "Suuuppppeerrrr delayed and I didn’t feel that an empty middle seat to be considered business class on my2nd leg from London to Munich."

Cons: "One of the flight personnel I felt was very rude"

Cons: "We booked our tickets and chose our seats and nowhere did it warn or tell us that we were located in a ‘safety row’ where the arm rest would not fold up. So we could not stretch out during our 12 hr flight. This was the most uncomfortable experience I have ever had on the multiple trips I have done between USA and Australia or New Zealand. The seat ordering from the kitchen was rarely available, even after the flight attendants had finished food service and pick up. The flight attendants weren’t very friendly."

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"

Good selection of music, movies, as well as other information provided, such as information about place to be visited.

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."

Pros: "Food and service good"
Cons: "Had a large person next to me so not much room :-("

Pros: "Good thing, we got there."

Pros: "No complaints at all"

Cons: "It was unpleasantly cold in the cabin, blowing cold wind at it could not be better"

Pros: "Staff did a great job"
Cons: "The plan was very small feeling for a 777. Much more cramped than any Cathay Pacific or United flight I frequently take."

Pros: "Check in process was very good"
Cons: "Staff is not necessarily as attentive to individual needs as they could be. Many oversights in service. Also, the sound on my video speakers was distorted (loud screeching) that ruled out any chance to watch any movies on this long flight."

Pros: "Food Entertainment Charging port and powerpoint Service"
Cons: "Seats were ok but not great"

Pros: "Air New Zealand provided the best service Iʻve had in a while!"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Great staff, snacks and beverages. Plane was brand new and nice. I think it had humidifier which was really nice"
Cons: "No TV behind seat. Boarding was a bit messy"

Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."

Pros: "attendant frienliness, and communication."
Cons: "The plane. it is an unsuitable for more than one hour flight. The value for the money is down in the bottom."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."

Pros: "We purchased economy tickets in Delta. With these tickets you don't know where you are sitting until you get to the airport. Well, we lucked out and got the Plus seats! We got free alcoholic drinks, and big plush seats! We left right on time and got there early! Overall a great experience!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"

Pros: "I'm very Thankful that I had no delays departing and arriving I liked that the flight was on time"
Cons: "I wasn't aware of fees being in place to change for earlier or later flights. But the fees don't apply when the airline needs your seat. I value my time and was unpleasantly surprised that I had to wait 4hrs for my scheduled fligh bc I didn't have the fee to change to an earlier time"

Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, but due to weather. Not the airline's fault. They got us here sooner than I thought we could arrive. Plane was tiny"

Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."

Cons: "Seats are very small."

Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"

Pros: "I am not one who enjoys flying. I don't think there ever will be a time that I enjoy flying. However, the pilot, stewards, and all other workers on delta were very nice."
Cons: "I don't like flying so there really wasn't anything I liked."

Pros: "Loved the new aircrafts, the flight attendants were friendly and attentive. We landed 40 mins earlier than expected, the captain really sped the whole way and I didn't feel a thing!! The landing didn't even feel as though we were speeding...one of the best flights I've ever had (Jessica England) thank you!"
Cons: "Food options, early morning flights I get you're not going to have real food, but can there be an option to purchase a bagel with cream cheese or croissant, something other than a snack box. I understand the flight is under 3 hours so certain foods aren't available but Delta you upgraded everything else. I enjoy the Tapas box for those that are vegan, kosher, gluten free, etc....PS-the bathrooms are smaller"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"

Pros: "Everything, confort, pilot's comunication..taking different route to NY to avoid weather, and wind problem."

Cons: "Awful experience. Delta left us stranded on the runway for 3 hours. Pathetic airline."

Pros: "Exit row seat with no seat in front. Was able to stretch legs."

Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."

Pros: "the plane crew were nice"
Cons: "ok wont fly delta if i can avoid it"

Pros: "Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time"
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade."

Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Delta. They just hate their passengers"

Pros: "Return trip was 30 min ahead of schedule"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay getting to NYC"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and clean. I enjoyed the basics of drinks, snacks, carry-on, seat selection, and entertainment for the price of what other airlines charge for just a flight with nothing else included."

Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers. I issue is that at no time did he discuss this option with us. He was instituting the move when the male passenger stated he did not want to move"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The entertainment on the app, bring back the good old tv's on the flight"

Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."

Pros: "Nice power nap, quick flight!"

Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."

Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."

Pros: "I got home. That's the highlight. We didn't have any incidents."
Cons: "Took off late because the bus to transport flight attendants were late. Backed up once into New York. Had to circle several times. Once landed we waited in a queue behind 10 aircraft."

Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."

Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."

Cons: "Delayed and crews attitude. Also being seated next to someone when the plain is half empty"

Pros: "30 min. early!"
Cons: "Only pretzels"

Pros: "Arrived sooner than expected! Nice, smooth flight despite cloudy, rainy day."
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I will avoid the airline at all costs"

Pros: "Flying Delta is always a great. Gate agent and crew are top notch."

Pros: "The aircraft was much better than the originally plan which was delayed and then cancelled. Comfort seats and cleaner aircraft was a nice surprise after 5.5hrs of stranded time at the CLE airport."
Cons: "Delayed for 5.5 hours."

Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."

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: "Very rude behavior of the staff at the desk. Flight was 7 hours delayed and then canceled. And the staff were not able to give us updates. They were being rude."
Cons: "Ground staff should need more training how to treat passengers. They should show little respect towards their passengers."

Cons: "Flight got cancelled. Still not to Vancouver. Wasted a whole day traveling, about 19 hours due to delay, canceling and try to get rebooked. West Jet does not run on time."

Pros: "A flight is a flight, nothing to write home about - a mode of transportation."
Cons: "Weather and deviated disarrangements tainted our vacation."

Pros: "Crew and staff at gate fantastic. Accommodated me sitting with partner on both legs (booked flights separately)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Very thankful my flight went smooth as I flew with my puppy."

Cons: "The flight was full and my carry-on had to be checked due to other passengers bringing oversized carry-on. The beverage service did not occur until 10 minutes before landing. Options were limited to water only. The flight was extremely rough and the pilot slammed the plane on landing."

Pros: "Our stewardess was amazing. Took very good care of us. My son was sick and made sure a wheelchair was available for him total take us to transportation. Made our trip. Thank you!!"
Cons: "All was good"

Cons: "More room"

Cons: "No entertainment service."

Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"

Pros: "Timing"

Pros: "No entertainment (short flight)"
Cons: "Check in was quick and efficient"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "It was smooth right from booking online uptil reaching destination"
Cons: "As it was an early morning flight I would suggest a better snack something like sandwich keeping in mind if giving option for veggie"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Should consider giving front seat to senior Snacks could have been better keeping in mind the flight time"

Pros: "My first experience with West jet very enjoyable i would recommend!"

Pros: "Need more leg room"

Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."

Pros: "The flight was on time."

Cons: "Tiny chairs"

Pros: "I would like to see more spacious and comfortable seating. They rest is inconsequential. Besides that, no complaints. Thank you."
Cons: "We did not like feeling cramped. This part of the world is breeding much bigger humans than before. Please make allowance for that. I had a tough time breathing...2 big guys side by side is a sorry sight in that limited space."

Cons: "Ridiculous baggage policy. Boarded among the first passengers in the last zone group to board the aircraft. All overhead bin space already gone. Sat with my knees up around my chin for whole flight. Very uncomfortable."

Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."

Cons: "We were told not to take the late flight to TO as Westjet would not hold the connecting flight (TO to Gatwick) for us. This meant our TUI connection in Gatwick to Chambery would have been wasted along with bus transfers. West jet did not offer us AC flights that were available to keep us near to our schedule. We ended up cancelling the Westjet flights and buying AC flights to Heathrow at a cost of $3300 + $300 taxi to gatwick + abandoned bus to Gatwick Westjet did offer us a flight on Sunday ! In the end, we are not sure if booking thru Kayak was part of the problem as Wesjet staff said ..... Oh you booked thru a 3rd party Comments ?"

Cons: "Everyrhing was great"

Cons: "Trip from Toronto to NYC should not be so long. Between boarding getting delayed to finding a gate in NY laguardia, it was just extremely exhausting."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Crazy delays into La Guardia from Toronto, worst flight experience of my life!!!"

Cons: "I had to get searched by crew twice even with the delayed flight it was random even going through all the proper procedures of checking in with my carry on luggage and etc. It was not organized and I got the run around and I just felt like not a valued customer. When boarding the flight I got passed over with beverage and snack. My neighbors next to me looked at me with concern and I just ignored it and didn't want to ask because I was already bothered by my whole experience coming back to New York."

Pros: "Soft voice of flight attendants with such an early flight."
Cons: "Paying for food. Paying for luggage. Movies in a loop, not on demand. Missed beginnings of all movies I watched."

Pros: "Really great attendants. Friendly and humorous."
Cons: "They took the tablets pretty early it felt. 45 minutes before we landed. But other than that, great experience!"

Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."

Pros: "NOTHING"

Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"

Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."

Pros: "Very positive and smooth experience. Love the app and free wine!!!"
Cons: "None that I can think of. I recommend this airline to anyone."

Pros: "Comfortable seating and a plug for my phone"
Cons: "We were delayed ... was supposed to take off at 7:30 didn't take off until 9 .. I've sat on this plane longer than I was in the air"

Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"

Pros: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."

Pros: "Best WestJet flight ever!"
Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "Friendly crew, efficient"
Cons: "Delayed boarding."

Pros: "Reaching my destination"
Cons: "Wish the emails/alerts came sooner. I waz always in transit when i was told my flights had been delayed or cancelled. I wont blame people for weather but it was the most annoying trip i have yet to take. I dont mind dissapointment but please dont waste my time."

Pros: "They were very accommodating. I used the call back feature a few times. All agents were courteous and made it easy to complete transactions. Our family was travelling for my grandmother's funeral we called several times over the course of a few days to book for various family members."
Cons: "There was no communication/correspondence when the flight was delayed. They took contact numbers plus there was an email provided, yet nothing."

Pros: "It was a little tight seated in plus row but i should not complain because you don't get to sit beside anyone. Would like that they served tea since I was dying with a bad cold. Staff were professional and the head flight attendant took charge of the plane very professionally. I'll fly again with west jet because air Canada crew can be miserable."

Cons: "Flight delayed by 30 minutes"

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "No issue at all"

Pros: "same as above."
Cons: "same as above."

Cons: "There was a delay that was weather related. The entertainment system was good, but old, and had some glitches."

Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "My boarding was no so good. However all went well."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, roomy seats, arrived on time."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great!"

Pros: "Punctual, smooth flight"
Cons: "No food, needs improvement"

Cons: "I was simply trying to relieve myself using the restroom in the back. I had held it in the entire time during take off but I desperately needed to go. The seatbelt sign stayed on for an eternity so I decided to get up to go when I felt it might be ok. Another gentleman also did so, he didn't get yelled at but I got an earful from the flight attendant and she assumed I didn't speak English because I couldn't respond while trying to hold my nladder."

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in Montreal for about an hour."

Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "Flight was more than hour delayed. When it hit the turbulence zone it was insanely scary. I know it's nobody's fault but leaves bad felling about the flight."

Pros: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"
Cons: "Getting stuck at the boarding area for 6 hours in normal weather with no particular hazards for flying. Crew was good. They did their job."

Pros: "This time I didn't have to pick up my luggage in Toronto, it was lucky!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Movies!"
Cons: "Food.."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Pros: "Had to rebook and was oven wrong information when I caked . Ended up paying for a new ticket"

Cons: "Flight was delayed again and again. Construction at Laguardia made leaving the airport a nightmare."

Cons: "delayed. no explanation for a long time. no agent at gate for alot of the time."

Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."

Cons: "Delayed as always"

Pros: "Les sièges étaient spacieux."
Cons: "2 vols chez Air Canada, 2 vols annulés !! Plus de 4 h d'attente à l'aéroport !! 1 vol en raison de la météo (no comment) et l'autre en raison d'un nettoyage à faire de la réserve de carburant... Dédommagement minime de 10$ pour s'acheter qch en attendant !! J'espère avoir plus en contactant le service client..."

Cons: "Gate change but no announcement"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "It took two air hostesses two hours to service the entire cabin. There is a training issue. I would not fly air canada again."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. The delay was announced after we had boarded and sat in the plane. Not acceptable. For the delay all that was served was water after about an hour, and pretzels and soft drink after two hours. Not acceptable."

Pros: "Very kind crew, comfortable seats, good movies"
Cons: "I was never notified by text or email that the flight was delayed 2 hours! There was never an announcement made about options to standby for earlier flights. I had someone waiting for me at the airport for 3 hours! The flight home was very chaotic."

Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."

Pros: "We received generous vouchers, when our flight was delayed prior to its cancellation."
Cons: "The only disappointing thing about our flight was the cancellation without warning and explanation. We then had to work to get on a new flight as some of our party were not automatically re-booked."

Pros: "Movies for free, although the seat next to mine didn't work. Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Some of it was air canada, some of it was weather and some of it was the montreal airport. scheduled for 6:00 rescheduled 7:00 rescheduled 8:00 boarded 8:30 took off 10:00 1. air caanda - boarded the plane, then came on with announcement that we would be sitting on tarmac for an 1.5 hours. We were delayed for hour and half already, why load us and make us sit in a warm aircraft. Air Canada offered us 10.00 vouchers for dinner... problem was they did it so late nothing was open. It should have been done earlier. 2. weather - caused the initial problem in NYC, no fault of air canada. 3. Montreal airport - Our gates were switched 3 times during the delays. Which happens, however the gate changes started at one end of the airport, moved to the other end of the airport and back to the original end."

Cons: "flight was cancelled after being loaded and pulled away from the terminal. waited for over 2 hours on the tarp and then they said the crew had run out of time and could not fly. They took us off of the plane and did not rebook us. It took everyone over two hours to get rebooked for the next day or even two days later. They almost had a revolt on their hand since they did not have a representative talk to us until the passengers started yelling at them. Very poor customer service. Just horrible."

Pros: "Seats are quite comfortable. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Suitcase costs money. Food was ok. No headphones for entertainment. I felt it was like a low cost flght but we paid a regular price."

Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "Plane was old"

Pros: "I don't like air canada"
Cons: "Check in crew was rude and awful. Flight cancelled without notification, thankfully the minute we noticed I called customer service. Waited an hour on hold before luckily grabbing 2 last seats on a flight going out the next morning."

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy.."

Cons: "Why have automated checkin and then still have to wait in massively long line to drop off your luggage. Do it like Jet Blue or Virgin or any of the other airlines.......you show up, auto check in, bag tags, separate line for smart efficient people to drop off their bags and get on with it. Its just so inefficient and puts a complete damper on the trip......maybe curbside checkin also."

Pros: "Flight was delayed from take off by ATC @ LGA for two hours, flight attendants served us with refreshments & free ear phones, meanwhile the Captain kept us completely updated on the delay"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The return seizing was great, also, with the check-in person ensuring I could sit alone."
Cons: "I still deplore that we are not given a glass of wine or a beer. Come on. Such a small gesture would make such a difference."

Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"

Pros: "Service was on time & staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight back, we had to wait on the airplane for a good hour before we could disembark. But that was due to heavy traffic at the airport and not the fault of the airline."

Pros: "The flight was no cancel because the weather"
Cons: "Waiting too much after landing in LGA"

Cons: "Lack of refreshment choice."

Cons: "Never again"

Cons: "Declined !!!! So long"

Pros: "that we landed safe"
Cons: "that the plane was delayed snd we were keept in side like sardines"

Cons: "Fact that when my flt was delayed it was too late notice and then when it got cancelled no communication. Poor customer service. ."

Cons: "Air Canada cancelled the flght without notification. Sat in the airport from 10:45 in the morning until boarding call at 13:30! There were 8 cancelled flights to NYC because of Toronto return scheduling conflicts resulting from runway repair work. Air Canada customer service desk was horrible."

Cons: "Flight cancelled without ever receiving any notice -- I found out when I was in the security line. Waited 1.5 hours to talk to an agent. On standby for 7 hours. No food vouchers. Air Canada agents gave very little information, didn't care at all that they had cancelled dozens of flights."

Pros: "Seats Comfortable. Drink service was effiicient."
Cons: "An hour to get a gate upon landing. Unacceptable. Crew did not push passengers to get luggage stowed. They did not seem very concerned about boarding efficiently. Cup size on drinks is stingy."

Cons: "Late flight No info given to passengers"

Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."

Pros: "My 55 min flight ended up taking nearly 3 hours since there were about 9 people that needed to gate check their bags. Air Canada needs to figure a better way to gauge the carryon situation. People had giant bags that just couldn't fit in the overhead. Also- there were far too many people with carry one. I paid to check my bag... then got stuck with my backpack under my feet and jacket in my lap for 2.5 hours as we sat on the runway."
Cons: "To be honest, nothing specific stands out. The whole ordeal was pretty much a nightmare. We were offered some pretzels and water while we sat on the runway for hours."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and pilot was knowledgeable"
Cons: "My tv screen didn't have sound !"

Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."

Cons: "Nice flight"

Pros: "My connecting flight to Yoronto was very late and I missed this flight. air Canada was awful. My last trip with this airline."

Pros: "Leaving and never coming back!"
Cons: "Psychotic and delusional crew that take bad customer service to a whole new level!"

Pros: "Originally this flight was scheduled to be an 1hr and 17minute flight. It only took 55 minutes from gate to gate. Flight attendant was really friendly, overall a very great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft that was servicing this route was tiny and at times I found it difficult to stand up properly without hitting my head. There was a little chop upon takeoff but besides that everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Captain gave us regular updates"
Cons: "LGA closed for wind. We sat on taxi road for 2 hours. Crew could have served more than water while we waited. No AirCanada's fault but crew should have a plan to serve the snacks/ food if we are sitting for two hours and the total flight time is 1.5 hours."

Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "Just a small plane, subject to turbulence. Not much that can be done, though if they ever redo the seats for a little more cushioning, that would be nice."

Pros: "Everything fine"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The flight attendant was super awesome. She was personable and had a great attitude. I didnt get her name, but she was by far the best! Blonde lady, smelled wonderful, very refreshing and funny conversation...(Ua1412 to LaGuardia) yeah yeah! Amazing!"
Cons: "I wanted the salami and cheese crackers but the flight wasn’t given any, so I chose the veggie smash/pita bread/quinoa/almond thing. Not too bad, but definitely no match for salami and cheese crackers. You know?"

Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take the flight."
Cons: "They didn't get me to New York. Our original aircraft was stolen to use for another flight. So we needed to wait for another plane that wasn't due until 90 minutes after our scheduled departure. This second plane had maintainence issues. After 4 hours waiting I got on a Delta flight."

Pros: "My legs were very uncomfortable to sit"
Cons: "seats were too close"

Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"

Pros: "People were polite."
Cons: "I got my flight switched earlier. Paid $57 for it. Then this flight got delayed almost 2 hours so I ended up in NYC at the same time and it threw off my whole work day."

Cons: "Comfort, service.., terrible'"

Pros: "They let people get on with oversize bags when sequence 4&5 get on there's no room left"

Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."

Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."

Cons: "Bad"

Pros: "It was also 2 hours late."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and argued with me for not saying thank you to him after he gave me water. I had actually said Thank you but he didn't hear it. I don't mind saying it again."

Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."

Pros: "Much more comfortable."
Cons: "Lavatory still dirty."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Wobbly takeoff from Denver, then an aborted landing at LGA, I won't be flying United again anytime soon."

Pros: "The flight was smooth for such a small jet and the attendant was so pleasant and kind. I was very pleased with the experience over all."
Cons: "It was just a personal preference. The snack was an Asian mix and it was something I didn't care for but honestly it hardly impacted the experience at all."

Cons: "There was confusion on where to go check luggage and what duty free items could be carried on board."

Cons: "Old plane. An almost two hour delay taking off once we had boarded the plane. Terrible in flight entertainment options. 30 minutes straight of turbulence just before and while landing."

Pros: "Communicated things as they unfolded"
Cons: "The air traffic control issues on both ends of the flight...we had to divert to a different airport, and there was only one option for transportation and a long line to figure it out, so since it was so late, I gave up and ended up paying a hefty cab fee. The airline should have been ready with cards or info about how to get reimbursed, considering everyone's unique travel situations. Simply a shuttle back to Kahaurdia was not helpful..."

Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "The flight was short so no entertainment was needed. After the nightmarish flight I had just endured it felt like first class accommodations."

Cons: "Many hours of delays from and to.."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "United changed my flight 3 times, due to "traffic control", then I almost missed my flight altogether because the last update they sent me was incorrect. Luckily I showed up to the check in desk early, or what I thought was early, they were at final boarding and almost didn't let me on the flight. The crew was helpful but indignate. Flight 1968, no Bueno."

Pros: "I like the way the crew was very professional with the rude, obnoxious man sitting next to me. Not once did anyone lose their cool with him."
Cons: "The rude man sitting next to me. He was just so obnoxious and acted entitled as if he owned the flight."

Cons: "The flight No one knew what was going on. My bag made it in earlier than I did. Everyone I talked to was unhelpful. Staff was not able to deliver my bag overnight. Had to go back to the airport. Cannot stress enough that no one knew what was going on."

Pros: "I got stuck in security but the United staff waited for me to board. I am grateful they went the extra mile because I chose to fly that day in order to make it to an important event."

Cons: "When i originally boarded the flight i notices that the person next to me was an obese person that was taking over half of my seat when i went to the flight attendant and informed her she said she might not be able to do anything cause the flight was full. When door was about to close i noticed an empty seat and took. The thing that upset me is if there not been an empty seat i would have had to seat in a seat where there was no space and still would have paid the same as a person that is taking part of my seat and the flight attendant didbt even seem to care."

Cons: "The economy seats are obnoxiously small."

Cons: "My flight we canceled to LGA due to "weather". Every other airline had flights going to New York on schedule. To me, the reason was unbelievable. I was moved to a flight 12 hours later, at 540am. Not only was my flight time changed but I was now flying into a completely different airport. I had to stay in a hotel and pay $70 because United doesn't pay for a hotel if the cancellation is due to weather. I am outraged by this sudden change in plans. I will never fly United again and I will spread the word to everyone I know."

Cons: "No UBS charger on the plane!!!!!. I I cannot believe it . Not even in business class. Boarding always sucks. Wwhen will they ever learn that people can comfortably wait in the waiting area instead of being stacked up in front of the plane waiting for others to put their luggage away? It's ridiculous."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "What are they charging for, I fail to grasp, No help in check in, pay for every bag you check in, pay for seat if you choose yr own, overpriced tickets, no meals, cramped seating. Worst airlines in the world."

Pros: "It was good , on time and quick destinations"
Cons: "Could be free wifi"

Pros: "Food, atmosphere, people!"
Cons: "Nothing not to like!"

Pros: "I like that my flight arrive on time. I mist say before a time and that was really good. I like almost everything about it."

Pros: "Again very skilled pilot in windy weather"
Cons: "Had to stand on bridge in crazy cold weather to pick up plane side check in. Just unfortunate"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and friendly."

Pros: "Every one was friendly. The plane was clean"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I have an 8 yr old boy & he & I were seated apart. The flight was packed, then we were seated together but there were 2 pairs including us that had duplicate seats. Needless to say the flight was delayed because the grumpy stewards couldn't fix the situation. The door was reopened so that the fate agent could finally resolve things. Stressful before a very turbulent flight, not fun, I'll never fly United again."

Cons: "Stop with the united airlines video. I bought the in-flight tv package but the in-flight United Airlines video, not the mandatory safety video, caused me to miss the end of my game. I don't care about seeing a commercial I'm already a customer."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "-Flight was 2 hours delayed getting to the gate because they kept saying they were "bringing it from the hangar." Does it really take 2 hours to bring a plane from the hangar? And why didn't they bring it before our scheduled departure? -Flight was then delayed another 1.5 hours because the fueler put too much fuel on the plane so we had to wait for them to send out another fueler to take fuel off. -Meanwhile, I was late for work and almost got fired because of this mistake. -They then proceeded to put my luggage on the wrong airplane so once we landed I had to wait another 1-2 hours for my luggage to arrive. -Meanwhile, all gate attendants had terrible attitudes when dealing with customer. I will never fly United again."

Cons: "Over 2 hour delay that started with maintenance again (this happened on 2 of 3 flights for this trip), that further delayed with the plane being late and de-icing for the weather. No in-flight entertainment and smaller seating than jet blue, yikes."

Pros: "Plane was sub-standard. Bad lavatory. Stewardesses gave wrong info about arrival terminal Only small toilet in rear of plane. No toilet in front Very bad experience"

Cons: "The turbulence was nuts, crew was rough, food was none!"

Cons: "Flight got delayed twice because they could not find a crew member/pilot. This was extremely unprofessional and I ended up having to get a flight with american airlines instead and they were awesome. Will never fly with united airlines ever again."

Pros: "Airline staff were friendly. Flight to O'Hare arrived late but what can u do? On flight to laguadia , I got no snacks and no soft drinks. economy class was like a sardine can"

Cons: "We had to get off the plane because of an electrical problem. I completely understand that these things happen but the worst part was dealing with United employees after getting off the plane. They didn't know what they were doing or how to deal with a situation like this. I waited an hour and a half to talk to someone about getting to my destination and they gave me a flight 5 hours later with a 10 dollar food voucher for the airport. Bad experience :( Ralph Nassif"

Pros: "The service was quick by flight attendants, 5 minutes in the air we were served immediately. Then people were sleeping and relaxing. Thank you"

Pros: "On time. Clean equipment."
Cons: "Small seats."

Cons: "Delayed flight"
