Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "2 hour delay on take off"
Pros: "there was nothing to like. A few hours before the early morning flight Alaska cancelled the flight and rebooked us fir a flight 12 hours later. Their phone is off during the night and we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get a flight that would get us to our cruise on time. A"
Cons: "use something other than Alaska and it will be better"
Pros: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."

Cons: "When I went to check in in San Jose, they told me I was double booked on the flight to Seattle. One booking was paid for but not connected with the Reykjavik flight and the other booking was not paid for and connected to the Reykjavik flight.

Cons: "The only negative thing wasn't anything related to the flight or crew, just whom I happened to be seated next too!!"

Pros: "Seats, coffee (serving starbuck"
Pros: "I liked the snacks and beer on the plane but that was it."
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late to my 6:30am flight because of sjc security being the worst, slowest, people ever. Then I was promised I'd make it on the 7:30am flight to Seattle but there was only one seat available so my friend went and I stayed behind where I was then told I'd definitely get on the next flight. But wait!! I wasn't allowed on the next flight and had to wait until a 12:55 flight all while sobbing and having the worst anxiety attack of my life by myself. So I'd have to say that was the worst experience of my life. Thanks!"
Pros: "We boarded early and arrived a LITTLE earlier than expected. That was nice. Overall the flight was OK."
Cons: "The "snacks" were less than impressive. And when the attendant, in her thoughtlessness, poured me half a cup (what is it, a 6oz cup?) I asked for more (at least the other half of my cup) and I got water... Gee, thanks. And they should really be more diligent about checking and re-checking the overhead compartments. One popped open on the return flight. And looking back I remember noticing that it didn't look flush with the rest. Thankfully no one was hurt."
Pros: "Plane wasted full."
Cons: "Nothing everthing well done."
Pros: "short flight... only 45 minutes. Small plane but comfortable"
Cons: "It would have been nice if the email for checking in explained exactly what it meant and whether or not online check in was mandatory. As someone new to flying, it was a bit confusing."
Pros: "Overall good flight"
Pros: "This one was late due to maintenance issues, but they beat the new take off time by 30 minutes and I had plenty of time for my connector"
Cons: "Being tall it is a little uncomfortable with head room in the restroom"
Pros: "The crew was simpatic and servicing"
Cons: "The in-flight systems did not work even in the USA. Too limited offert of free entertainment when it worked"
Pros: "Clean, roomy, not a packed flight. Great price and friendly crew!"
Cons: "No internet in the flight"
Pros: "The male flight attendant was not very attentive. He would serve me first and then lean over my food and drink to serve the guy on the window seat. I had to ask him every time if he could take away my glass and then my wrappers and then my...well everything. Many people from the main cabin came up front to use the first class bathroom, and he didn't stop them. He abruptly woke he up three times with his loud voice talking with passengers...with no regard of the sleeping passengers. He is more suited for the main cabin. He didn't offer any help when I was struggling to put my bag in the overhead bin. He watched as the young lady flight attendant struggled to open the plane door... I did not feel that the cost for first class was worth it. He never responded when I thanked him for each thing he did...nothing...not, "You're welcome" or "my pleasure." So, it was a first class disappointment."
Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"
Cons: "Connection at Schiphol often tricky;"
Cons: "My monitor isn’t really working after rebooted. And the audio hole wasn’t tight enough"
Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call....my headrest was broken so couldn’t sleep upright but face down....seemed like a plane that large would have more bathrooms"
Pros: "No delays..arrived early"
Cons: "Restrooms were dirty"
Pros: "Food was unexpectedly good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 40 minutes. We could hardly catch connecting flight"

Pros: "The check in reminder is easy and helpful"
Pros: "That Tillamook cheese and fruit plate was nicely done. A pleasant surprise."
Cons: "We had to wait at the gate on arrival"
Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."
Pros: "I liked the movies and overall entertainment available to the passengers."
Cons: "The food selection needs a poultry option."
Cons: "Didnt fly from San Francisco to Atlanta"
Pros: "Quiet, quick, no issues"

Pros: "Once aboard, flight went without a hitch and flight crew was attentive"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment options need to be expanded - I've run out of movies that I want to watch!!!"
Pros: "Polite crew, clean plane, smooth reservation and seat selection process"
Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."
Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."
Pros: "Ground team was amazing--efficient, pleasant, rapid turnaround"
Cons: "Incoming plane was 1.5h late and there was no meaningful explanation (saying that the plane was late coming in bc it was late getting to its prior stop isn't really an explanation)"
Cons: "Announcements at the gate could be more clear."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Free meals! Free snacks! Free movies! Comfortable seats and friendly flight attendants!"

Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants"
Pros: "All restroom floors were wet. I have seen this in others 767's too. Is this a 767 phenomenon"

Pros: "That it's over"
Cons: "the 1 hour delay, when we arrived we sat for another hour and I missed my international flight"
Pros: "Plane was a newer one, clean, and the stewards were nice."
Cons: "New seating was terrible. The seats are so jammed together that my knees were pushed up into the seat in front. How can anyone be comfortable with this kind of seating arrangements?"
Pros: "Quick flight and we flew over Yosemite (where we recently hiked). Also, the free in-flight entertainment is such a nice addition! My wife and I had the seat open next to us, so it was very nice to have extra room in our row!"
Pros: "Crew service, attitude was much better compared to most US based airlines. Comfort+ has great perks."
Cons: "Aircraft was old."
Pros: "The crew were super helpful with my toddler and 5year old as I was traveling by myself. Everyone was very friendly and allowed me to board early as well as helped me when my toddler was crying to distract her. Service was fantastic! The plane was new and I really appreciated having entertainment I didn't have to pay extra for."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Corn nuts for snack. I'm allergic to corn. I get people want snacks on a flight and you can't make everyone happy. It was ok. I just said no to them."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "lie flat seats and linens were very comfortable"
Pros: "On time. No problems."
Cons: "Hard to understand what group was being called to board. No systematic lineup, just crowding around."
Pros: "Staff was friendly but Stern with customers that needed it"
Pros: "need to feed people more often and make the seats alittle more comfier but other then everything came out good looking forward in flying with delta again"
Pros: "Service is good. Flight on time."
Cons: "Don't like the chicken wrap which is dry and hard."
Cons: "Charging money for window and aisle seats a new low"
Cons: "Apparently, using a third party source lost me the ability to choose my seat on both flights. The only book ahead options are ones I need to pay extra money for which feels like a scam. I won't be able to get a seat ahead of time on the way home either which will be an even longer flight (6+ hours) and will likely be stuck in a middle seat yet again. If this is the case with booking through third party sites, I won't do this again."
Pros: "The small scack/meal was excellent. Good service. Smooth flight. In-out-done! Good job Delta!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything negative. A long time standing by on runway waiting for departure."
Pros: "Big plane and fairly comfortable"
Cons: "It's more of a shuttle than a transcontinental. Seats are narrow with little leg room. Like all others you have to pay for everything. Delta terminal is not easy at jfk. Sfo is fine and works well All airlines are the same these days. Flights are uncomfortable and crew just throws out peanuts and water"
Cons: "The person taking tickets asked me to check my bag. I said ok and he instructed me to step aside and taking anything out of it that I might need. I did this and when I came back they had locked the doors."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the gate agent was efficient"
Cons: "We not only left 45 minutes late, but there was no beverage service on the flight."
Pros: "On time. Arrived 30 mins early. New plane."
Cons: "Middle seat. Very crowded, could hardly work on my laptop. Food was not great. Had a turkey roll. Opt to pay for the $10 sandwich at the airport."
Pros: "Like delta have single tv, good coffe, will be better is from centro o South America , a time w connection and will safe"
Pros: "Crew good! Seats uncomfortable as usual"
Cons: "Transfer of luggage from one plane to this Victoria flight. Delayed 30 minutes."

Cons: "More leg room, more air conditioning"
Cons: "Very poor customer service"
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."
Pros: "Unreal service by all WJ employees. Great service getting my 87 year old mom to and from everything."

Pros: "We didn't fly into Toronto. Our flight was from Gatwick to Vancouver."
Pros: "Downloaded WestJet app in Toronto while waiting to board the next flight. Enjoyed the selection of free movies and TV shows. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The connecting flight to Halifax was a long haul at the end of B terminal. Same airline, just really far away! Maybe it has to be that way due to the international arrival, but it was stressful. Wear tennis shoes! Flight attendants were efficient but not as friendly as the Toronto folks. The advertised “power at every seat” did not work."
Pros: "WestJet great airline"
Cons: "YYC new Gate “C” poorly organized"
Pros: "The staff are very professional and friendly."
Pros: "On time - lots of legroom (after previous flight on Q400)"
Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "The screens were so old and bad that it would be a total waste of money to pay for the PPV channels. Seats were hard and unconfortable"
Cons: "Their check in was not a boarding pass which prevented me from using Quick Connect from Immigration. So I reached the terminal counter art the FAR end of the terminal with 15 minutes to apare. The agent told me that wss not enouhh time to make the flight. I had to wait almost 4 houts for the last flight if the night to get there"
Cons: "Announcement from the flight crew inaudible. Much too fast and with lack of ununciation"
Pros: "I'm trying real hard not to give WestJet a hard time but my seatmate had genuine mobility issues and the walk to the gate AND out to the plane which was unusually far from the terminal...little help here folks!"
Pros: "Plane, stewardesses on the plane"
Cons: "Where to start. Booked a higher priced ticket as layover was minimal. Westjet later emails, saying layover is now 7 hours?!?! We booked a connector with air canada with only a 2hr layover. We decided to keep the checked bags on the Westjet later connector to be less hassle. Westjet agents at airport did not mention that you cannot do that. So it wasn’t until we arrived at the layover point, we were told we had to pull the bags and re-check them in with Air Canada, go through the whole rigamarile of checkin, baggage check, and security. Not something you want to deal with when you are at the tail end of a red-eye flight. So thumbs down. In Westjet’s defense, they did give me a 200 dollar credit toward a future flight when I kicked up a fuss about the change to a 7-hour layover."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in Plus (1F) but legroom was cramped, no choice of decent food (cookies, chips and chocolate - all sugar or fat & salt) Most of the TV channels were not working along with the map display. Definitely not worth the extra cost of Plus fare"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "First flight on WestJet in 3 Years. Didn’t like not knowing I needed a tablet or laptop and an app to watch tv. Offered a drink and asked for water. Received about 2 ounces. Every body around me ordered soft drinks and got a 10 ounce can"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 and a half hours but everyone was friendly."
Cons: "Very poor attitude of cabin crew. if they don’t want to serve the “guests” get another job."
Pros: "Crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Having only one bathroom at back of the plane was a surprise ."
Pros: "Seats could be a bit bigger for tall people."
Pros: "Fast connection, friendly crew."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The friendly service and prompt boarding!"
Cons: "The snack options. Veggies and hummus would be nice!"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "We were not sitting together...we are both seniors and my husband has only flown 2 before....our seats were booked together and I am assuming due to our flight cancelled on Jan 8 and rescheduled on the 9th that could be why. No room to stretch your legs, for those of us who have circulation problems...."
Cons: "Not any bodys fault the crew were trying to be supportive. multiple babys all around the area beside accros and a few rows down. maybe set them all to teh back would be better"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and was very helpful!"
Cons: "I found the rows a bit tight together leading to a little less legroom then I would like but this is standard with almost any airline."
Pros: "Getting into Victoria befor evening"
Cons: "Delayed, no pilot, no communication."
Pros: "left on time"
Cons: "The overhead bins are now too small for a large number of carry on luggage that meets the criteria of carry on. If you wheel your now over sized carry on to the gate they will stow it below for free. If you check it they charge you $26.00 knowing it won't fit in the bins anyway."
Pros: "Charlotte and Johnny spiced up the safety brief with some humor, it definitely made the flight more enjoyable and to have a friendly, funny and relaxed flight crew."
Pros: "Very friendly crew !"
Cons: "It was delayed because they couldn't find the stewardess. So made me late for my plans , but other then that it was good . The crew was excellent on both flights"
Pros: "On time, luggage arrived even with yer short connect in Calgary"
Pros: "Staff were super friendly and welcoming"
Pros: "Great flight, on-time, comfortable for economy class, food was decent for airplane food, free wine"

Pros: "Ease of checking in, timely announcements and updates. Smooth ride"
Pros: "the team helpful"
Pros: "Flight attendant was helpful when I had a personal health issue."
Cons: "Pay for snacks on a 5 hour flight? What do you really get for a ticket that cost over $500. US? I paid for noodle soup. They gave me a fork to eat it after they bumped into me and spilled the hot liquid on my sleeve and slacks. Then when I went to eat it I realized that the noodles were not cooked through. they were rubbery. the liquid was tasty, but with a fork how much can you taste. Ended up giving it back after eating about 1/4 of it. Seats had no leg room even though was a larger plane. Had restless leg from the very beginning. Legs were in pain the whole time."
Cons: "Half hr late"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "Cordial service."
Cons: "Seemed understaffed to serve customers quickly on a short flight"
Pros: "The plane was obviously newer and in good condition. Entertainment options were good. Window dimmers were a cool touch."
Cons: "Service from the crew was generally bad. For a 5 hour flight, we were offered one drink. We had to sit with our pile of trash for 2.5 hours before they collected it. Crew was grumpy and unpleasant. My baggage was damaged."
Pros: "EVERY efficient boarding. The plane was almost an hour late to our gate, but we were done boarding only 15 minutes after the original takeoff time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. Flight was scheduled to take off at 1210 pm, delayed to 1510, delayed again to 1700 then delayed to 2110 and hen finally boarded at 2230 but the flight did not take off for an additional 2 hours making the total flight delay 12+ hours. My mom did not speak English and the staff at the boarding gate would not provide her a translator nor where they willing to talk to us over the phone to assist her. I understand that delays happen but the lack of assistance and multiple delays was alarming (with clear weather). Air Canada device over the phone was unprofessional as well when I called to discuss the lack of assistance we received."
Pros: "Fast and friendly check-in, flight was on time, service on board was good, flight was comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and empathetic. Was not their fault for the delay."
Cons: "First plane that was after a 4 hour layover broke down. Took over an additional 9 hours to get a new plane. And all we were given was a voucher for a discount on a Canada Air trip and headphones."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Cons: "We're Not Satisfied With Our Seat From SFO TO YVR"
Pros: "The pilots were professional, got us there on time and did a wonderful smooth landing."
Cons: "The flights attendants uniforms were wrinkled and old, tired and worn out looking, their behaviour was the same. They were pretty much tired and disinterested in their job. Time to hire new blood, get new, fresh looking uniforms, and there definitely should be a weight limit, I have seen flight attendants who have to turn sideways to get down the aisle comfortably, what on earth would they do in an emergency. Yes size does matter. Look to JAP airlines for style and dignity in the job. Having said that I love Air Canada and fly it as often as possible home."
Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."
Cons: "Everything costs extra: picking seats, pillows, blankets, no Economy Plus for Star Alliance elites, any food, etc."
Pros: "Not too crowded"
Cons: "Flight was late by over an hour."
Cons: "I had legal rights to, as I tried to explain to the agents. They dismissed and mocked me, until 3 hours later. By that time I had missed my flight."
Pros: "Very nice people, seats large enough"
Cons: "impossible to work on my computer, plug without enough power turn off automatically"
Pros: "Full flight operated professionally and politely. Good range of food and drink for purchase only."
Pros: "I enjoyed the efficiency and friendliness of the crew and the timliness of the flights themselves as well as the boarding process."
Cons: "First flight: My headphones didn't work with the entertainment system and the only other option to watch what was on the tv was to purchase headphones. Also, the movie skeleton was somewhat limited. Also, it was a longer flight but there was no free food option"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight needed canada transit visa and you guys dint even said me. Moreover when I contacted vayama as my bookings were proceeded by them even they dint helped me and then I had to cancel my ticket. I expect you to refund my money because of your fault I could not board the flight and had a horrible experience"
Cons: "As we were ready to start boarding, suddenly the desk employees announced that anyone who had done a self serve or web check in needed to come to the desk with ID. Seemed like at least 75% had done this! Also at the same time they decided to make a point about only 1 hand carry per person and probably 25% of the so called hand carry items ended up being checked in as they were far too big and never should have been allowed in the first place. A good portion of the passenger had 2 hand carry SUITCASES each. This all should have been dealt with during the waiting period - not at the 30 min mark before departure. Flight departed late as a result."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "The fact that they changed the gate and didn't bother to let anyone know until after the flight was actually meant to leave. Also leaving nearly two hours late."
Pros: "Free TV."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Guy behind me was loud and kept kicking/pushing my seat."
Cons: "your app is useless because it didn't even notify me on the changes to my flight."
Cons: "The complimentary earphones provided on the flight were the worst ear buds I have ever worn and were extremely uncomfortable. If you're going to make it so passengers cannot use their own earphones without the sound being distorted, then please upgrade your earphones to something more comfortable. My ears were sore the whole flight trying to readjust the ear buds."
Pros: "We checked in late and therefore weren't able to get seats together. At the ticket counter, we asked to get put together and were able to get these seats."
Cons: "As with all coach seats, they were cramped."
Pros: "Friendly responsive flight attendants."
Cons: "Dinner not so great."
Cons: "They kept us in the airplane 3 hours before"
Pros: "Got on as standby - very helpful staff"
Cons: "At the Montreal Airport we needed to connect to our flight to Boston MA. Unfortunately the turn to get to the USA connections is not marked very clearly especially for the travel weary! Please ask them to put a up a brighter sign. Thanks!"
Pros: "Air Canada has decent movie/TV options — I like that they have interesting, older movies available (and it's all free)."
Cons: "If you're sitting near the front of economy, and you don't have elite status, be prepared to gate check. The plane they use on this flight (Airbus A320) has terribly-designed luggage compartments that hold about 2.5 bags over 2 rows of seats — not enough for every passenger. Passengers seated near the rear of the plane board first, so consider sitting farther back so you can find a spot for your carry-on suitcase."
Pros: "This is 15 minutes so not much ever goes wrong. Get to altitude and then start decent."
Pros: "i got a whole row of seats to myself. so i sat side ways and put my legs up."
Cons: "was completely ignored by drink service. but they bothered to awaken me to get me to take off my headphones for takeoff, which was delayed by 15 minutes because something needed to be re-checked."
Pros: "Upgrade your seat and it makes a huge difference. Staff were very polite, service was great and leg room was fine as long as you upgrade."
Cons: "Another delay, minimal update. For older passengers this is difficult to understand whats being announced."
Pros: "My first name was misspelled by air Canada. This made me nervous. Air Canada rep refused to correct my first name on the boarding pass. My kayak itinerary had my name correct."
Pros: "12 minute flight"
Cons: "After waiting several hours in Kamloops for a plane to arrive, we found the same situation in Vancouver. We waited 30 minutes for a 12 minute flight."
Pros: "Efficient, polite and I enjoyed the entertainment. I always prefer air Canada to domestic airlines."
Cons: "There was no notice given about my seat, but it was locked from reclining so I got squished when the person in front of me did recline. I should have asked to check if the person behind me had one of those anti reclining device clipped on my seat."
Pros: "Nice United booking agent that helped to re-book flight for next day."
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no notice. Food offerings very limited. Charging for two bags."
Pros: "Vary timely, and enjoyable."
Pros: "kind and welcoming staff! the manners of the crew was above and beyond great! I was convinced they wanted me to feel comfortable and relaxed."
Cons: "I'm only 5ft "10in" my legs were pushing against the chair in front of me. They were all out of orange juice by the time they got to me, I had to settle for water."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Fairly efficient boarding process. On time departure. Pleasant crew. Low price. Overall, a good flight. However, I wouldn't want this to last more than three hours or so... a transcontinental or intercontinental flight would be unbearable."
Cons: "Tight seating, both width & leg room. Not enough enforcement of oversize & excessive number of carry ons. Inadequate carry on storage space. Inadequate storage provision for people in "no storage space" seating like bulkhead rows. Nevertheless we got good value for money."
Pros: "Was upgraded."
Cons: "Awful food."
Pros: "The seats had more legroom on this small 2+2 then the 3+3 we connected from."
Cons: "No entertainment as we were unable to download the app needed and had no notice before we went to the airport. Because small plane and length of flight only snack items available and our connection was late getting us there and left us no time"
Pros: "finally reached our destination"
Cons: "germany was apparently having a strike. all flights were cancelled. we were made to wait overnight. then sent to frankfurt. then sent to venice. couldnt land there. we landed in bologna italy. then made to wait overnight. then we flew to rome. then we flew to chisinau... finally. what was initially supposed to be 18hr flight. turned into a 5 day trip. i want a refund!"
Pros: "The crew for this flight was amazing! Very helpful and informative. Friendly is an understatement. Safety was a priority especially when we went through a little turbulence. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience."
Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."
Cons: "have no idea if I'll even make it thru the day."

Cons: "Play delayed 90 mins adding to my already delayed journey!!"
Pros: "Booked on kayak, assigned a middle seat with a lap infant (ridiculous!) There were no aisle or window seats available but gate agent was able to move us to a bulkhead so at least we had enough leg room to accommodate us both. Thank you United, but thumbs down to auto seat assignments."
Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."
Pros: "The easiness of the airline to adapt to the fact that we will be going late and the swiftness in organize all the passengers in a way that no one will miss their connection flight"

Pros: "Same as previous flight"
Cons: "same as previous flight"
Pros: "Service and crew were excellent. Seats had extra legroom built in."
Cons: "Terrible internet service for the $8.99 I paid. Also the early departure of passengers who have to catch connecting flights doesn't work when those passengers are in window seats. Just get people off the plane and keep passengers from starting conversations with the crew while exiting"

Cons: "Spicy snack. Same snack on all 4 legs of our trip"
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Small.plane, nasty sweet snack! Geez are peanuts that much more expensive!?"

Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional in spit of all the grumbly passengers."
Cons: "First boarding was aborted and passengers were sent back up jetway to waiting area. This was due to a mechanical issue with the plane, which I am glad they noticed and took care of. However, getting to the plane's door and then being told to go back to the waiting area was unpleasant."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "My husband, myself and 11 year old son were seated separately. We requested seats together. I was told by the desk staff that there were younger children also seated away from their parents. Once in board, I observed several families with adults seated together and children older than 11 seated together. Priority should have been given to younger children to sit with at least one parent. I was uncomfortable with my minor aged child was seated with strangers for a 5 hour flight. In flight online entertainment didn't work initially."
Pros: "The Mexican service always is so kind, excellent pilot, the trip was so windy, and I felt secure. You were beyond my expectations, we arrived a half hour before, thank you so much."
Pros: "The personnel were attentive and polite on the flights"

Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare, baggage took 20-30 minutes on the opposite end to be unloaded."

Pros: "i liked the set up and how the seats had the tv in the back of them ."
Cons: "no complaints."
Cons: "Poor management of delayed flight and boarding"
Pros: "The plane was very nice and comfortable. There was a slight delay but we were kept well informed."
Cons: "It was FREEZING which made it impossible to sleep despite being exhausted from the extreme flight delays. Two issues (one was maintenance, the other was a passenger not feeling well) caused delays up to about 90 min!"
Pros: "The way they said "Hello" to me. Other than that, the water was good."
Cons: "Everything else. My flight was delayed for weather, and I missed my boarding by 2 MINUTES, and they rejected me at the gate, and told me my seat was already taken by stand-by. Then the lady I went to see at the customer service desk was rude, and rejected me from first class even though it was THEIR MISTAKE I was booked there. Then I didn't even land at LAX! I had to take another flight that landed at Ontario so I can make my appointment on time. Will NEVER travel with United again!"
