My biggest complaint about this flight wasn't with Delta itself, but with the man next to me who half way through the flight decided he didn't need to wear his mask anymore. With so many headlines in the news of people going insane on flights about wearing masks, I wasn't about to ask him to put it on. I was disgusted by his lack of concern for the law and the health of those travelers around him. I know that Delta Flight Attendants did not sign up to be the mask police, but I really wish someone would have told him to put a mask on. People like him are ruining what would have otherwise been a really great flight/traveling experience. I'm happy Delta is bringing back meals on longer flights (in first class). The food was good but I am excited for the day when actual meal service returns. Maybe when people like my seat mate start wearing their masks and following the rules we can go back to having nice things.

Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing, and boarding was right on time."
Cons: "It was pretty hot on the airplane. Could have regulated the temperature a bit better."
Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."
Cons: "All of the plane extras (e.g. WiFi, food service, etc.) were out of commission for some reason. Without WiFi, I couldn’t watch anything on my own device, and I would’ve had to pay for a headset that is compatible with your screens."

Cons: "The only problem with the food was it was all canceled because of rough weather."

Pros: "Crew was nice, despite multiple hoardings and time delays."
Cons: "Plane was originally set to leave at 11:30 am, but was delayed until 3:00 pm for equipment.

Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed."

Cons: "Boarding passengers should be more carefully controlled with amount and size of cabin luggage and where they place them. Toilets should be more frequently cleaned in flight."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, great flight attendants."
Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."
Pros: "The movies were spectacular"
Cons: "Food was a bit plain"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Felt agents held me back at the check-in counter resulting in me missing my initial flight and voiding my complete routing.

Delta just didn't bother providing good customer service"

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."
Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew was courteous. Plenty of room and comfy seats. Good entrainment media"
Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"

Cons: "Seat 43B?! I checked in 12+ hours in advance."

Cons: "Why is the complimentary Wi-Fi and messaging only for T-Mobile subscribers?"

Pros: "Snacks included bananas."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag that fit within the size constraints."
Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"
Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."

Cons: "No entertainment service."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Pros: "Horrible check in"
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "That it was a direct flight. No delays. Friendly gate people"
Cons: "The snacks. The seats hardly recline. Baggage fees"
Pros: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."
Cons: "Food choice a bit limited - especially the free offering. In-flight entertainment is only available from the WestJet app to view on your own device - you need to know this before you board - otherwise you are not able to access any of the movies etc."
Pros: "Had seats in row six -- plus there was room for both our carry-ons!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed taking off from Winnipeg 90 minutes with no explanation given. Made us late getting to Saskatoon and missed our daughter's scheduled ride to pick up our two cars as a result. Had to pay an extra two hours parking at airport, etc etc etc."
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."
Pros: "West Jet just runs a relaxed yet professional airline. They are just more laid back and accommodating. You can use any bathroom on the plane as well which is huge on those rare times you need to use it. They are funny and chatty and seem to enjoy working together which all translates to a less rushed and relaxed experience for us the passenger. I really can’t complain....I had an entire row to myself....the best you can hope for, when riding on a plain for hours that’s like winning the lottery!"
Cons: "No complaints for sure"
Cons: "I was in row 2 and they did not have the food item I wanted. Seriously?"
Cons: "The crew on the plain was extremely rude!!! Very very dissapointed!"
Pros: "West Jet never disappoints..."
Pros: "Extra leg room, staff very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No tv screens on back of seats, liquids should be offered more"
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...."
Pros: "THE YOUNG PERSON FROM GRAND PRAIRIE AB WHO SET NEXT TO ME WAS A GOOD TRAVEL COMPANION"
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE MUCH TOO SMALL FOR TWO MEN BOTH OVER 250 POUNDS TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
Pros: "WestJet was great. I had assistance this flight and they took great care of me"
Cons: "Totally full flight so squished in my seat"
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: "The entire flight's baggage never were received. The stewardess even promised that all bags would be received within 20 min. We waited 1 hour until we went to go talk to someone to inquire about the delay. They opened up a baggage claim, but the claim status only ever says open or closed, which says nothing about the status of the bag."
Cons: "Lack of attention from aeromexico in customs to ensure making the connection. Sevice is a joke."
Cons: "2 hour delay, small plane, rude crew"
Pros: "The reservation was quick and effective"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. We missed our connecting flight so we are in a hotel in Toronto now at 1:30 am. And our flight out is at 5:50 am and we will need to get up by 4 to get to the airport by 4:50. Getting our hotel and food vouchers was long and painful and disorganized. Would not fly with them again"
Pros: "Pretty quick boarding, although the boarding time was incorrectly mentioned to be too early."
Cons: "Had to de-ice so we left about 10 minutes later than expected, but somehow still arrived early… but our gate had another plane still using it. We ended up arriving at our gate 25 minutes late. That's unacceptable, especially on a flight that's just an hour long. The gate was so far from the public transportation (landed at Terminal 3, public transport is at Terminal 1) that I missed the bus - got home super late as a result."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Who decided that seats should be shaped that way? Always gives me a backache."
Pros: "Cabin Crew were nice"
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Lots of leg room and liked the screens for each seat even though I could not listen to what was playing on it."
Cons: "No headphones and the crew member I asked said he would ask at the back but never got back to me."
Pros: "Crew was fun and helpful. Was extremely accommodating in helping me switch to an earlier flight"
Pros: "Personable and professional staff. Great service"
Pros: "staff was great, left and arrived on time and we stayed up 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: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "No issue at all"
Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "My boarding was no so good. However all went well."
Pros: "fair bit of leg room. fairly relaxing flight, as i am not a frequent flyer. good and safe landings as well as 'lift off' all staff was good on flight"
Pros: "Clean plane, entertainment, crew...WINE! This has been my best flying experience in Economy for a long time. Good leg room."
Cons: "The checkin agents couldnt help me to merge two itineraries for easier transfer between two WestJet flights."
Cons: "Paid for reservation of a particular seat. At check-in was offered my choice of another seat without regard to the fact that I had paid for seat selection. Westjet employee did not honour paid-for selection or offer refund."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "A 1 hour flight, delayed. Meant I missed my entire flight and stayed I Ottawa International for 8 joirs"
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
Pros: "Great staff!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick flight. Dlient Service in check-in was excellent, she went the extra mile to change my return flight to a more reasonable time."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No entertainment unless purchased. Seats were very tight -no leg room"
Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then without notice back on schedule and the we boarded and sat on the tarmac for an hour. Why board us if we can’t leave?"
Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."
Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"
Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent, most of the staff except one was excellent. The flight was smooth. Got hooked on a new series that I started watching on the plane."
Cons: "The wait time between flights on the way home was brutal but you expect that if you are flying on points. What made it worse was that I had to leave the secure area and collect my bags then wait 8 hours in the airport only to go through security again. On top of that trying to get my baggage tag there was a female agent that should have retired 100 years ago directing people like it was our fault she still had to work. If you can't be nice you should not be in customer service."
Pros: "I like that we made it safely."
Cons: "The crew seemed to not like their job and were very short with customers."
Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not comfortable at all, seats are too crowded, and cabin was way too hot!! Some ppl had to undress their babies..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not so bad..."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."
Pros: "Aircraft was originally booked solid, but a last minute change of aircraft switched us to a larger aircraft so everyone could spread out and get a little more room. Crew was energetic, enthusiastic and pleasant. Overall the flight was above average, mainly due to the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is always an issue (I'm 6'4"). Thankfully this flight was not booked solid and there was no one sitting in that dread middle seat. The food was Mediocre at best. We ordered a pizza for lunch, the toppings apparently shifted in flight and the cheese and pepperoni slid off the crust and was sitting on one side of the box with the crust on the other... (Advice - Stick with sandwiches, crackers and cheese, etc. instead of the hot meals on Air Canada)."
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "."
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick, efficient, on time"
Cons: "Seats had least legroom of any plane I can remember. I'm not that tall and my knees were in the seat pocket the whole 5 hr flight. Also, the seats could stand to be a lot cushier. I felt like I was sitting on a piece of cardboard after the first 2 hours."
Pros: "Crew Only."
Cons: "AC website states for US and Canada allow 120 mins. We arrived to the airport 130 mins inadvance. We had no checkin bags but we almost missed our flight. (Many people did miss our flight). You need to allow at least 2 -3 hrs for US security checks. Because we almost missed our flight, we didn't have time to purchase food preboarding and the selection in the plane was very limited. My partner is 6'1 and the seat was extremely uncomfortable for him and it was not in our budget to upgrade. There was no free entertainment in the plane. You needed to rent a tableT!"
Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Pros: "The person we sat next to. And the great flying of the pilots."
Cons: "I am handicapped. Requested a wheel chair from the curb . Upon arrival, no wheel chair. we waited and waited. Then my friend went and got a wheel chair for me. we then joined our two friends, who also had wheelchairs. however, they had first class and was taken immediately to the first class lounge. I was waiting forever behind the check-in desk in Vancouver. I then put my bags on my chair and used the chair like a walker! Still no help. When I asked for help I was told that I was early and I could wait. Not the right answer. I was told to be at the airport 2 1/2 hrs. early which I was. Until I got to the woman at the boarding desk at E84, I was treated terribly. Since we travel with our friends we had hoped to at least see them. No way. Air Canada mad sure of that. also Not a peanut unless we spent money!!!"
Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "We were dehydrated and the flight attendants were stingy with WATER."
Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "I was rebooked so my new flight AC 705 was directed straight to Toronto. Only thing I disliked was that gentleman who was left at the gate for my original flight at 8:30am. He was rude!!!!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Unable to buy food or drinks on plane without a credit. I don't have one !!!"
Cons: "Old Aircraft, no power outlets, small TV displays, picture distorted, low quality LCD, mediocre Entertainment menu"
Pros: "All in things were reasonably easy"
Cons: "we had a 9 hour delay"
Cons: "Ful flight and 2 small toilets."
Cons: "Great flight attendants"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and the flight was Short. Can’t say much about the food since the flight took only about over an hour. The crews were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Free WiFi with movies"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "A very rude boarding agent insulted a young man from another country who was boarding in front of me. He misunderstood that they wanted him to check his luggage instead of carry it on. The agent yelled at him and shamed him in front of other passengers. United strikes again!! Seriously folks, you suck!"
Cons: "Zero entertainment. Too cramped"
Pros: "The app promoted me to check in on my phone and would not allow me to check in. So I assumed the time on the ticket would be my boarding time. I was late for my flight."
Cons: "My 10:00 p.m. flight was canceled so I had to spend the night trying to sleep in the airport. Have you ever had to do that? Not fun."
Pros: "The middle seat was empty, the boarding process was fast."
Cons: "I always feel a bit crowded in United flights, the seats are very close. Tried to used the free inflight entertainment and it didn’t work in my computer, which was a bummer. The arm rest was sticky."
Cons: "The day after my flight I received an emailed receipt of the the customer in front of me of her lunch order, I’m sure it was an honest mistake but to me paying attention to details like that is very important. There was no personal information on the receipt, I was just wondering on how it was emailed to me instead of her."
Pros: "The staff were fine, nothing really great, but nothing bad either."
Cons: "So, we'll start with boarding. Why airlines can't figure out to board the plane from back to front is beyond me. No, let's load front to back so everyone has to uncomfortably shove past the people who have already taken their seats at the front of the plane. Then you get back there and all the overhead bins are full because everyone takes as many bags as possible onto the plane. Then you have to sacrifice the already tiny amount of foot room, "to put the bag fully underneath the seat in front of you." At this point you should be fine, except if you're over five and a half feet tall (I don't know if that's true I'm 6'2" and 275 lbs,) because then your knees are going to be buried so deep in the chair in front of you that the person up there doesn't even need a seat they can just sit on your knees. Luckily for you tall people, they put a nice metal rod just about knee level to really dig in and cause pain . . . Yay! Being a big guy, you try to be considerate and fold your arms in to give the person next to you as much space as possible, but don't expect that back as they'll spread out and become as wide as possible. Then to distract yourself from the discomfort, you try to use the free in flight entertainment via the United app, but "it's not available right now." In summation either be short and small or be rich and buy the seats with extra legroom when you fly United."
Pros: "I liked the customer service wfrom the woman who helped us find a way with patience to get a working card to get our luggage checked in. I liked the customer service on the flight they were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The options to pay baggage with one card is rough on the average traveler, the baggage charges cost as much tickets!"
Cons: "We had to run to get to our plane because of the ridiculous time-window you guys allowed (15 minutes if everything went according to plan--which it didn't)."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Late departure due to late arrival of the plane from previous destination. Pushed our arrival time after midnight. Rental car agency was closed and had to rent from a different one at a very steep premium. No apologies and no assistance."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "slightly delayed"
Pros: "It was hot...the whole flight"
Cons: "Hot hot hot"
Pros: "Flight was in time and smooth. Crew was friendly and active in the cabin."
Cons: "Seats were very close together and leg room was very limited. It was difficult to get in and out of the window seat area."
Pros: "Arrived an extra 20 minutes early and the bags came quickly out, very happy about that!!"
Cons: "Overpriced entertainment--I'm not sure why there is a charge at all. Also, didn't get to choose my seat and got stuck one row ahead of the bathrooms in the back of the plane--worst seat ever. Apparently everyone on the plane had to use the bathroom at least 3 times during the flight--plus the drink cart went by another 10 times."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Suggestion, why don't the airlines charge to use the bathroom, so the money humgry grubs could make more money"
Cons: "I saw my bag come out of the baggage claim ripped open. My stuff coming out. My zipper was complety destroyed and my locking mechanism on my bag was ripped off even though it wasn't locked."
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Pros: "The plane was newer at least. And I made a big enough stink when they made me check my bubble-wrapped framed paintings that they actually did get hand carried and made it okay."
Cons: "These are the smallest seats I have ever experienced on a domestic airline. I'm 6'-4" and I couldn't fit comfortably on their newer 737. The thing that took the cake was that the cabin crew absolutely refused to let me take one of the 5 empty exit row seats telling me that it wasn't fair to the people who paid more, which absolutely enraged me. So then apparently it's also fair that their seats will fit someone who is 5'-4" comfortably but not someone who is 6'-4"?? So it's fair that I can't afford to pay an extra $100+ for it after my profession got gutted in the recession and I make a fraction now of that I used to make? Making your customers suffer for no good reason is inexcusable. I will not be flying United again. Ever."
Cons: "Given that both flights were delayed - my luggage managed to not make the second flight leaving me to cancel my plans for the evening. There was more than enough time in between flights."
Cons: "The United mobile app as well as my emails stated that the gate was B3. Upon arriving at gate B3 and attempting to board, I was alerted that I was at the incorrect gate. The gate was switched to C11. However, my app did not alert me nore did it reflect the gate change. I didn't receive a text or email update. I had to run to the different concourse nearly missing the fling."
Cons: "Never made it!!"
Pros: "The crew that bothered to show up were fine, not overly friendly as they SHOULD have been due to the extreme delay."
Cons: "I checked in online and printed my ticket a few hours before my flight, so I was dropped off at the terminal where my gate was supposed to be. THEN after I get through security, I find out my gate has been changed to another terminal- one for international flights. I had to walk for 30 minutes with my heavy carry-on to find the correct gate. Then the flight was so incredibly delayed because a flight attendant decided to just not show up for work. So unprofessional! If the flight had been delayed because of uncontrollable conditions, then that would be another story, but come on! A flight attendant not showing up for work? That's pathetic."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "After paying for the flight, $7.99 to view Direct TV. Don't be soooo cheep!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Some passenger were allowed to carry more them the 2 bag carry on rules."
Pros: "They were prompt and polite"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I purchased two tickets for premium economy. United issued us economy seats and required payment to upgrade to economy plus. In addition the flight was 5 hours late. Very unhappy with United and would not do this again. SAS was great. United did not honor our ticket for Premium economy purchased through SAS."
Pros: "Flight attendant was extraordinarily kind, especially for the couple sitting next to me with their adorable 7-week old baby."
Pros: "Didn't fly to San Diego-got rerouted to LAX instead. Had I continued to San Diego I would have landed almost 6 hours later than my previous arrival time all because of delays at the gate in Harriaburg. An original 30 minute delay from weather is understandable, and by the time the aircraft arrives you'd think they'd be ready to deplane and get it rolling quickly. Nope, not all. I think it was amateur day in Harriaburg because it was like no one knew what to do and nobody could make their minds up."
Cons: "See above. This is why I drive everywhere."
Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "Once we boarded the flight people started getting text messages that there was mechanical issues and there would be a half hour delay. Crew didn't even know. Then pilot said there would be an hour delay because they had to wait for a "deadhead" pilot. That should be unacceptable."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "The airplane was new and clean"
Cons: "The pre-boarding staff were rude and not helpful. I had requested an aisle seat when I booked my flight. Somewhere along the line, my seat was changed to a middle seat. When I asked the staff if I could switch to an aisle seat to help accommodate my sciatica, they told me, "sorry, we can't help you, you'll just have to ask another passenger." Neither crew member was willing to work with me or hear my concerns. So much for flying the friendly skies...well I guess we were still on land, so may that principle had not yet taken effect."
Cons: "I have flown with United on many occasions, several of which were international flights however I was never more uncomfortable on a flight than I was in economy on my flight from ORD to SAN."
Pros: "United Airlines Staff were friendly and the flight was smooth! (THANKS CAPPY!)"
Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."
Pros: "Fast, friendly, on time"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Another flight were maintenance became an issue to the point we needed a new plane. What I love about United is that it only took an hour (and not 3+ hours or a total cancellation) to find a new plane and bring it to the gate after they ran into problems. I also love the happiness and relaxed crew after a passenger started an argument and fight with another passenger. They handled it extremely well and made sure that every one else was comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like being delayed, but it happens..."
Pros: "The in-flight streaming of movies actually worked pretty well -- just be sure to install United app on tablet if you want to use that instead of phone."
Cons: "An extra 1 inch between seats would make the difference in allowing passengers to open a small laptop and position it so they can simultaneously type and see the screen at a viewable angle."
Cons: "Since plane was delayed I missed my connecting flight so I had to stay the night in the San Fran airport for over 7 hours. For another 1 hour flight. With no accommodations or even a food voucher was just told to find a nice corner."
Pros: "Flight not full so with empty seat beside me I had lots of room to sprawl!"
Cons: "I still think it's wrong for airlines to charge for food so I didn't buy any. Couldn't get United app to work so no in-flight entertainment except what I brought."
Pros: "Boarded the plane at regular time but then had to get off because our pilots were switched to another plane. We had to then get off the plane and wait 2 hours for our next crew of pilots. It was a frustrating trip."
Pros: "outstanding service from the flight crew - makes me very happy to fly United comfortable seating and in-flight options clean, efficient gate made for a pleasant boarding experience"
Cons: "folks in economy that stuffed their items in business class which made getting my items extraordinarily difficult. Flight attendants should be monitoring this as it defeats the purpose of flying exclusively on United and premier status, which includes the benefit of getting off of the plane quickly upon arrival. whoever thought the ratio of eggs to oatmeal meals is completely off base. At least 7 more passengers would have preferred eggs, but were told there were no more to be offered. intercom is way too loud, esp. if you have earbuds in - we can hear you through the earbuds, esp. when plugged into the console when we'rer watching movies"
