The flight was good, no issues to complain about.

They need more staff to work at check in desk or change flight hours. There were 2 flights of LATAM at the same time and other 2 flights near my flight hour so the line to check in were too long and it didn’t move fast. I understand that now they take more time because they have to check many papers because of COVID-19. But I nearly miss my flight. I barely arrived to the gate 5 minutes before departure time! And obviously this things leads to delay.

No option to reserve a better seat. I was allocated the last seat in the middle in the last row at the back of the airplane. Completely full airplane, which again made me nervous due to COVID-19 risks of getting infected. Crew was very efficient, though.

I had my seat reserved since the day I bought my tickets(3 months in advance) and even after checking my seat confirmation on the same day of my flight they changed my seat during the check-in. I have a broken foot and was accompanied by another person. I had to fly in a seat that was not appropriate for my broken foot situation and without my companion next to me. This airline does not respect its customers.

Pros: "The middle seat empty AMAZING!"
Cons: "Bigger glass for wine !"
Cons: "They don't come around with drinks very often on LATAM. We bought our startup supply at the airport. First drink round was two hours into the flight."
Pros: "The crew was very warm."
Cons: "Seats very tight."
Cons: "the cabin and seats are old and seems dirty"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable"
Pros: "Neat, polite and orderly. Great food!"
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Strange use of curtains upfront during flight. I was asked to check my carryon for free to help out with boarding, but then had to wait longer to get the bag in baggage claim. It was the last bag of my checked bags to show up. Checked carryon bags should have a higher priority to return."
Pros: "Friendly and correct cabin crew."
Cons: "Leg space. There was very little leg space. One hour before the flight departure they were already announcing 'last call' on the airport screens."
Pros: "This non-stop flight was wonderful. The aircraft is comfortable, the whole flight was smoothly, even though it's fifteen hours flight."
Cons: "Bad"
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Almost all seats on planes are tightly crammed together."
Cons: "More options of TV shows to watch."
Cons: "They lost one of my bags. Amateur and inefficient company. Avoid at all cost."
Cons: "Cadeira dura"
Cons: "I couldn’t fly because at check in they asked me to pay for my 2 luggages and I couldn’t afford it so they let me out of my flight and now they don’t want to return my money. Worse airline I’ve ever seen. I’ve been flying international for 20 years and never saw a flight you have to pay for Luggage"
Pros: "Everything is amazing"
Cons: "Everyone"
Cons: "After getting off the shuttle to board the plane via stairs, men at the bottom and top of the stairs both stopped everyone and refused anyone to board. We were stuck on the tarmac for around 2-3 minutes. No entertainment options during the flight. No free food. Only water."
Pros: "Crew good, disembarking slow."
Cons: "A drink and/or snack."
Pros: "yo tenia comida kosher y no me la dieron"
Pros: "Confortable seats, flight on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant kept talking all night with two passengers. I could hear them even with ear plugs. When I finally was able to sleep, she didnt wake me up for breakfast even when I especifically asked to be awakened. And than replied that she wasnt able to wake me. Awful service for executive."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"
Pros: "The leg place and reclining chair"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good, my device connected immediately, and the movie started right away (while the boarding process was being completed)."
Cons: "More vegetarian options in the menu."
Cons: "The temperature should be a bit warmer"
Cons: "Offer refreshments"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I liked the person I was sitting next to"
Cons: "It was fine, but they scattered my group of six all over the plane because we didn’t pay for special seats"
Pros: "latam airlines only wants your money, if you miss your flight they will book your seat to someone else, you will be stranded, and they will not reschedule or refund. i now live in the airpot and I sold my car for this and I just want to die now"
Cons: "less ignorant/greedy management"
Pros: "They were very kind!"
Cons: "Probably the space we need more room, so we could stretch our legs and be more comfy!"
Cons: "Lack of food!! LATAM you are doing it wrong"
Pros: "I liked almost all!!!"
Cons: "The sandwich (cool meal)... The may improve it..."
Pros: "Said Paulo airport was chaos but flight was great"
Cons: "No entertainment. The airplane seems to be an older model."
Pros: "The crew was very kínd!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."
Cons: "Flight delayed well over an hour, Airport stuff unhelpful, Very below average."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was nasty, disordered. Bad experience"
Cons: "Aeronave muito velha, parecia que ia desmontar no ar."
Pros: "I would fly Latam again, good service and I saved a lot of money"
Cons: "Would like a lil bit more legroom"
Pros: "Wine and whisky"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, as expected in business class"
Cons: "1. Entertaining not working Rebooting didn’t fix it Nobody offered any alternative 2. As the last seat, NONE of my meal options were available. Surely they could hv started fm the back at least once to offset this handicap?"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The plane is ok but it is an old 767"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight at first had a 3 HOUR delay do to a "mechanical breakdown". We were told that they were going to bring another airplane from Rio de Janeiro. After the 3 hours passed they were only announcing in Portuguese to board the original plane. They never changed planes or provided a clear explanation to the passengers. Many of us refused to board. This was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. The staff was disrespectful and would not help us. We ended up taking another flight until the following night!!"
Cons: "Company was not able to understand situation and did not offer solution. I lost my money"
Pros: "Staff was nice despite the situation."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, we were reassigned to a Turkish Airlines flight that departed more than 6 hours later than our cancelled flight, we were given lunch but at a fast food restaurant even when we had to carry along all our luggage (super un-practical). And searching for info on twitter I found out this flight gets cancelled quite a lot."
Pros: "I like the food,delicious I like entertainment very good!"
Cons: "The service very slow. The sits very small,no confortable!"
Pros: "Entertainement system, lightening system."
Cons: "Breakfast could be improved"

Terrible airline. Completely disorganized and incompetent check-in process. 2+ hour flight delay and total lack of communication by their staff to the passengers. I missed my connecting flight as a result and was forced to reroute to Panama through Copa airlines in order to return to Bogotá, which took almost 10 extra hours. I would never fly GOL again.

I missed it because of the delay in the other flights. Attendants in the airport sent me from one side to the other many times due to poor information.

Pros: "It was a fluid flight"
Cons: "That it wasn't late"
Cons: "If I had at least boarded the flight I could have given feedback. But I didn't get in! I spent 6 hours at the airport waiting for my flight, with check in done and missed the flight. And on my ticket I didn't have the gate number or the terminal, the goalkeeper said he would let me know when the flight was leaving, the hours passed and I didn't hear him calling me. until near the departure time I went to ask the employee and he said that the flight had left a long time ago and that the entrance was on the opposite side of where I was and they did not warn me ... now I'm here at the airport with no place to sleep, waiting for my other flight with a connection to Brasilia that leaves 6 am where I will wait for almost 12 hours to be able to get home. remembering that my flight from São Paulo to Cuiabá was 3 hours long and I will have to wait for almost 24 hours. A goalkeeper was super arrogant with me, gave me no support and even told me that if I was in the United States I would be waiting for 3 days at the airport sleeping on the floor, so it was ok."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To be denied my flight, and no refund."
Pros: "Aircraft look new and very clean."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. It would be better if they kept the flights on time specially this time of the year. They had several flights daily from São Paulo to Rio, no reason to be late. It would be better if the employees knew the rules about their work. Everything very disorganized from the gate number to the carry on allowed in the plane. I will never fly with Gol again."
Pros: "Nice crew. Okay seats."
Cons: "4 hour delay with no information. Just horrible in this day and age."
Cons: "I had two USB chargers at my seat, but neither worked :("
Pros: "Este lanche da Happy Hour é um bom diferencial. Muito bom."
Cons: "Houve atraso na partida devido a uma menina desacompanhada que teve que desembarcar e pelo jeito, não por culpa dela ou dos pais e sim da companhia. Lamentável."
Cons: "O check in em guarulhos é péssimo e mal organizado. Mais de 40 minutos na fila, mesmo na fila do passageiro frequente."
Pros: "All great n crew very helpful"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "time was OK"
Cons: "Starting by the fact that if the system was actually working we could’ve done check in in the machine, and cut the 2 and half hours of line for check in and luggage drop off. The check in crew was not efficient at all, they would take 10 to 20 min to every costumer, no organization and poor trainin."
Pros: "I always have a good experience with Gol, the Gol Confort Seats are great, attentive crew, puncntuality."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable with plenty of room. Crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The little crackers they serve taste like cardboard."
Cons: "I have not had my flight GRU - SSA because I'm stuck in Buenos Aires in Aerolíneas Argentinas Hell"
Pros: "crew was smart. very standard"
Cons: "i had issue getting checked bag from kiosk. had to speak with attendant"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I wasn’t allowed to get on the plane and gol crew members were absolutely no help. Don’t recommend for anyone."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Entreteiment"
Cons: "El vuelo despegó una hora tarde, nos hicieron cambiar de avión."
Cons: "More efficient check in. Long wait at gate."
Cons: "Horrible experience. With a CONFIRMED seat with GOL airlines- and checking in two hours before flight- I was told flight was oversold and they did not have ANY seats on the plane. REBOOKED on flight from different airport two hours away! Awful!!!!!"
Pros: "poor food. extremely poor food."
Cons: "it would be expected to actual food(2 meals) on a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Viendo que no podrían acomodar tres adultos y dos bebés en una fila de tres asientos por falta de mascarillas de oxígeno, en lugar de reacomodar gente, nos hicieron descender del avión, no les importó mi bebé ni mi esposa que está embarazada, el peor episodio viajando, el supervisor fue descortés, poco profesional y de verdad tiró por los suelos la buena impresión que tenía de GOL"
Pros: "Thanks"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful, overall awesome. Comfort level was great. Appreciated the few small extras that came with our GOL premium upgrade purchase."
Cons: "Seriously, a sandwich and some indistinguishable "dessert". Honestly, I can't tell you what the 2nd item was on the try, even after trying it. I get that the flight was only 3 hours long, but a sandwich is not dinner. And, it tasted horrible. I took 3 bites and couldn't stomach the rest. It was laughable that they offered wine with it. Had I realized this was the option, I would have brought my own food. My husband, who eats literally everything, couldn't even eat it, and it was a cheese sandwich. How hard is it to make a bad cheese sandwich? Well, apparently, GOL knows how to do it."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Nice people once you get to an agent"
Cons: "Long lines of confused people trying to figure out which is the right one for them. Need more people giving orientation as people arrive to GRU airport."
Pros: "No horário... bagagens já estavam na esteira quando chegamos"
Pros: "Traveling from JFK TO GRU. Fight got delay by 2 hrs. Arrived at GRU 8:28. Got the luggage in 20-25 mins. Run like crazy to the check in 15 min. Got there by 9:15 only to find out it’s been closed for checking bags. I beg , implore and there’s nothing to be done. Pay extra for 2 extra bags, for what? Nothing. Lost about $75 altogether non refundable. SUCKS."
Cons: "What’s to like? Because of 30 they couldn’t added mire luggage. Begging imploring it didn’t matter. Ok I didn’t like loosing $75. Who’s gonna refund? Nobody. SUCKS"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "I’m time quick to board food and drinks free"
Pros: "On time departure, very nice n clean interior, fast luggage delivery at CWB"
Cons: "Hardly talk n understand English"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was one person helping a huge amount of people. It took one hour to check in. No common sense. They were helping the domestic flight people first with less bags to check in and the international flights were backed up with people missing their connections. No common sense at all. Incompetent service."
Pros: "Crew was nice and professional"
Cons: "No entertainment I was unable to get my ticket to Rio de Janeiro and I was only able to get my ticket to São Paulo so I had to see someone else and that is not very efficient"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."
Pros: "Puntuality"
Cons: "space on the seats, and between the seats"
Pros: "Didn’t have to pay more for the exit row!!!"
Cons: "Acentos muito apertados."

Pros: "First time on Gol! Awesome airline!"
Pros: "Delays without advice,desaster."
Pros: "Flight on time, nice crew."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Plane itself was fine, fairly spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Check in São Paulo was hectic and disorganized and my bag never made it on the flight after I checked it in- was not offered any vouchers or apology. I am left without any luggage in the jungle and will have to cancel my Amazon Jungle tour as I do not have my proper equipment needed."
Pros: "Crew members were helpful"
Cons: "Food was bad and didn't taste fresh. No tea to drink either. Boarding times were usually late but arrival times were as expected. There's no entertainment at all in the planes. No screens, no movies, no nothing."
Pros: "Got me there on time"
Cons: "Charged for coffee. No in-flight entertainment, crew was not all that friendly"
Pros: "No entertainment available. No monitors on seats..."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Rio"
Pros: "Employees were helpful profesional and friendly"

Food

Pros: "TV movies"
Cons: "More popular movies"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, crew in general was disorganized, most usb charging ports weren’t working, touchscreen is very outdated"
Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"
Pros: "Great flight crew and smooth landing"
Cons: "Pretzels are not a good snack"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "My girlfriend’s Tv stopped to work in the beginning of the flight."
Pros: "Nothing good to say for this flights overall."
Cons: "Spent over two hours on the plane/tarmac waiting for take off. Air Canada sucks."
Pros: "My flight was canceled"
Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."
Pros: "Service counter staff was helpful to confirm seating although I did not like being put on standby. This happens too often with Air Canada."
Cons: "Stop the overbooking!!!!!"
Pros: "Tre crew was fantastic"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"
Pros: "Super easy flight with no hiccups"
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "First flight comfortable fast clean aircraft Second flight older plane small not as clean"
Cons: "Air canada has a problem at every arrival gate each time we landed there was no sttebdebt st the gate and so we sat on the tarmac fir a while while they awIted somebody to come and drive the Jetway to allow us to park and deplane This happened all three times"
Pros: "Seat selection."
Cons: "The meals didn't taste that great."
Pros: "Well designed comfortable sleeping Pods"
Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "Espaço para as pernas na classe econômica foi suficiente para mim, a tripulação foi cordial, o avião era novo à parte de entretenimento foi boa."
Cons: "Quando embarcamos, quase todos os espaços para as malas já estavam ocupados, o espaço lateral das poltronas era muito apertado, a reclinação era péssima, praticamente inexistente. Quando decolamos, começou a cair água na nossa cabeça. O funcionário responsável disse que era do ar condicionado e era normal. A comida era ruim, sem gosto e com acompanhamentos que não combinavam, por exemplo no meu caso era frango com uma salada de vagens e pepino. Fora o horário das refeições, quase não era oferecido bebidas em um voo de 10 horas."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."
Pros: "Access to their entertainment (movie, tv) channels was appreciated. I did not have this option on my departing flight which was the same duration."
Cons: "The plane cabin was surprisingly hot when we boarded and for most of the flight, though it did become bearable. Had to struggle to take my jacket off when seated (as did others)."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."
Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."
Pros: "Everything, good food, good people, good times"
Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "Same as anove"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Cons: "The staff was really nice. However I was asked to switch seats and a flight attendant spilled water over me. They were very thankful that moved and very apologetic about the water so I feel bad for bashing them, I just think I should have gotten a free snack or something. The rest of the flight was alright."
Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "Crew provided a card to contact air Canada for compensation"
Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."
Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."
Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Cons: "There was no access to movies."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the seats and how fast the boarding and take off was."
Cons: "I did not like that I was not offered peanuts during my flight. The last time they offered free peanuts"
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: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"

They didn't allow me to board and they didn't refund me the luggage cost I have paid

Our favorite airline in the USA.

Pros: "All great in Biz. class."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful"
Cons: "The food was very average"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "100 minute delay due to "schedule disruption", despite no weather issues."
Cons: "They had no room for my carry on, I had to place it under my seat making my legs very comfortable."
Cons: "Drop-off bagage agent made me line up to get a new baggage tag even though my luggage had been checked up to my destination via COPA Airlines. A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "I just wanted to seat with my husband but it was not possible."
Pros: "The pilot tried to make up lost time in the air."
Cons: "Due to regulations, our crew had to delay our flight 39 min. This was done the night before. There was no way we were going to make our connecting flight, but no one from United seemed to care. The crew from milwaukee to Houston was rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "The flight itself was as good as expected: Attentive crew and competent pilot, good enough food, comfortable enough (for coach) seats, and clean airplane. The seats could be made to recline a bit more but nobody seems to be doing it for coach class."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes causing me to lose the connecting flight home by about 5 minutes There was no effort from United to help me to get the second flight on time or from the crew on that one to delay it enough for me to arrive. They suggested I waited 9 hours for the next available flight or to get one by AA in Reagan Airport in 3 hours. They told me that transportation to that airport would not be reimbursed and would cost between 20 and 40 dollars. I didn't know the airports were that far apart and the one-hour taxi drive cost me 80 dollars. From Sao Paulo to Washington, things went as well as expected. Once landed everything was horrible."
Cons: "I couldn’t check in for my flights ahead of time because the check in system from United and Copa airlines didn’t accept my reservation details. My first flight from Sacramento to San Francisco with United was cancelled and I was not informed until I arrived at the gate for check in. United wanted to rebook me on a flight to Los Angeles and Newark which would have been a delay of 10 hours. After security I had to go to the gate of a delayed flight to San Francisco and ask that they put me back on my original itinerary"
Pros: "The bed, pillows and blanket, the flight attendants and the captain, who was on his final flight after 30 years."
Cons: "The dry chicken"
Cons: "Cabin too cold"
Pros: "The price was better than spirit"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for some time but made it to Dallas on time"
Pros: "Good boarding"
Cons: "Delay and no food or movies"
Pros: "Kayak provided excellent info during the trip about flights timings ! Marvelous !!!!"
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "Good boarding process, pleasent staff"
Cons: "We upgraded to the economy plus. I thought it was still tight in with width and I m a small guy. The plane seemed old as the in seat screen was smaller than my phone. My wifte’s seat actually came apart. No charging ports for mobile devices."
Pros: "Short flight, quick boarding once aircraft arrived"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "Again we had more leg room than on most flights. Attendants were nice. They held this flight for us because our previous flight was delayed, we ran in and they closed the door. Thank you United! We only had one day visiting our son and his wife near Seattle, if we had missed that flight, I don't know when we would have gotten in. We would have lost our day."
Pros: "CorteousAll"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Food OK but to be expected. Entertainment good as per usual on United."
Cons: "My least favorite thing about flying to Dulles is getting on those ridiculous people movers to go to customs and immigration s. Creates a larger cluster of people at immigration and something else I have to wait on. Also - why is GRU already using buses for boarding 787s? The new terminal just opened three years ago-- missed opportunity."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "Crew was great, and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "For the price, there should be better food, and a bit more breathing room."
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "The crew and flight attendant were very courteous and engaging. Great customer service. I noticed a gentleman who was boarding the plane and asked for some water and the attendant dutifully and courteously provided him some very quickly."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding took a long time in the plane. There was confusion as they had passengers going both ways in the aisle .. this forced several ppl to stand in the aisle a long time. One of the air hostess had a major attitude. For example one passenger who was stuck in the middle of other passengers asked her politely if she could help him put the carry on in an overhead bin near her .. and she responded "I cant help you, you need to put it up yourself sir". Not something one expects. She was also terse with passengers, ordering them in an annoyed tone."
Pros: "Left on time."
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."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Super delayed. 4 hours plus for a less than 2 hour flight. Unacceptable. Arrival at 3:15 am vs 11 pm."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."
Cons: "Strange how the staff at lax just kept updating us...after we all got the update on our phones...in a non engaged manner as if it was acceptable and normal that the flight was delayed"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "Kept everyone informed of what was going on."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1.5 hours. Asked to check in carry on with plenty of space on board. Slow baggage claim."
Cons: "I purchased a higher priced Lufthansa ticket for this trip, but service was provided by alternate carriers. Not happy about this"
Pros: "United gave us drinks and free entertainment on the delayed flight. My screen did not work."
Cons: "We were on a cruse which was to leave at 7:00PM and the flight was to arrive at 12:35PM. It arrived at 9:00PM. United in DC told us all the flights to the next port for our boat (Antigua) were full and offered no other assistance. There were 11 of us in the same position. Several folks found a flight late that evening leaving at 8:30AM the next day for Antigua. They did not have our phone number so they couldn't tell us about its availability. 6 of us chartered a flight to Antigua the next day. If United told us about the existence of the 8:30 flight, everything would have been ok. United paid for the 8:30 flight for the 5 folks who took it."
Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"
Pros: "There were maybe two of the flight attendants. Who weren't rude. The rest well, I guess didn't like there jobs? I lost all my money for my first flight, because i was over 4 hours late. When i purchased a ticket from cheapo air, the person helping me was so nice. Unlike United airlines, or Viama. When i missed my flight that i paid $1,300.00, United said they'd give me another ticket for $4,000? This was a one time offer to redeem my $1,300 Viama said $10,500? I will only buy my tickets from cheapo air from now on."
Cons: "The flight attendants are very snotty, 2 out of the 18 I encountered were polite. The rest acted like they hated their jobs, and all the passengers. When you travel to another country they should have at least one person who speaks English. Can't really say much for the food, essentially requesting a vegetarian meal was out of the question, so i just starve. Drink some watered down booze, take a few dramamine and sleep. The layovers are ridiculous. 14 hours, 8 hours 4 hours? Good thing God made Beer and pizza."
Pros: "It was a small plane and it made up for some lost time in the delayed departure. The one air stewardess was also nice."
Cons: "Waiting for hand luggage on arrival slowed me down to catch my connecting flight. The flight was delayed to start with."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It wasn't on time to board"
Pros: "* Convenient and new airplane * Beautiful movies and games, the screen is also high quality"
Pros: "Please do a better job of keeping your customers informed about cancellations of flights in the event of a storm or emergency..."
Cons: "No one try to reach out to me let me know my flight was canceled I had to find that out on the day I was supposed to travel"
Pros: "I like being in an earlier boarding group and sitting by a window."
Cons: "Seats are too close together and reclining makes it very uncomfortable for the person behind the recline."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."
Pros: "Aircraft with old decoration. Could not see a single smile from the crew."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The screen was frozen the whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was operated by United, but there was no clear indication that it was so and so checking in at the Lufthansa desk was pointless. Seats are extremely tight and the entertainment system is outdated."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. I had a very tight schedule to visit my friends in canada. What was supposed to be a quick flight turned into almost 24 hours of travel and ariving 12 hours late. I was lucky to have 3 days in with my friends now i only have 2. Not to mention what was supposed to be an inexpensive trip turned i to an expensive one when you are forced to eat airport food after being constantly re routed. I bought my ticket based on ariving to ottawa in the morning this however was not the case. I will be seeking a refund."
Pros: "Good price and good flight."
Cons: "Overlay at the airports were tiring. While going into USA, in chicago I had to stay overnight for the next flight. While coming back, in Japan, I had to stay overnight for the next flight."
