I spent money on extra leg room and as I’m boarding the switch my seat to a regular seat. Horrible scam to get extra money from passengers. Never flying this crap airline again.
Cons: "The Terminal in Chicago had no open amenities and overcrowded."
Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."

Cons: "Poor entertainment, wifi option. Overhead lighting was on entire flight. AA flight attendants were over it. A bad experience"
Cons: "Denied boarding by gate agent. 5 min past mandatory one hour cut off from boarding. We had been standing in line for agent for 30 minutes. Two customers flying with little dogs delaying the movement of line. Flight was subsequently delayed by 2 hours and 10 min. More than enough time to allow us to board under 1 hour regulation. I booked LATAM instead of AA based on reputation, very upsetting experience for us."
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection.

Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"
Pros: "Beach pool fishing n company"
Pros: "Very good take off and a very good Landing."
Cons: "Everything is ok as expected"
Pros: "No much"

The crew were very polite.
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to crew unavailability. Entertainment did not work due to connectivity issued during flight. No cookies nor snacks were served vs outbound flight where they offered 3 snacks!"

Pros: "Nothing in special."
Cons: "We took two United flights today.... Both were delayed... Really annoyed by it. Took Delta and AA some days ago without a hickpup."

Cons: "It could have been better if my luggage didn’t go missing"
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "It was an older airplane. For a long flight from Montreal to San Francisco, a plane with more room would be more humane.

Cons: "More space on the flight"
Pros: "The spacious seats"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and courteous"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the cabin was comfortable."
Cons: "No change required."
Pros: "Being on time at departure and arrival is a challenge, but despite having a completely filled cabin, they made it look easy."
Cons: "I boarded in Group 4 and all bins were full. So my carry on case had to be checked (several others’ cases as well).

Cons: "Customs in Trinidad, even for transit is a pain. You go through customs, get dumped outside, have to recheck your luggage whenever the counter decides its going to open. 11 hour layover on the way down, 6 hour layover on the way up. Food options were fried chicken (KFC), fried chicken (Churches), fried chicken (the local franchise), and Subway. Since the layover was late at night and I was a woman traveling alone, I did not want to leave the airport (and still drag my luggage because the airline counter was not open yet to check in to my connecting flight)."
Pros: "the comped hotel"
Cons: "Improper handling of situation. There was flight scheduled later, but CS agent kept jerking us around. By the time I reached the United counter, the next flight was full. My total flight time was 36 hours. I still can’t believe that the pilot was missing. Worse yet, the agent at the gate could have made things much easier instead of telling everyone that a pilot was on his way to the airport."
Pros: "Just arriving safe, otherwise Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service is very poor"
Pros: "This was good, a pleasant and comfortable experience."
Cons: "WiFi was not free"

Pros: "The food could be better, for and international flight."
Pros: "Although I was allowed a personal item and a carryon. The agent at the plane doors ( Guyanese guy. Insisted I check my carryon, for the reason the flight is full name note I was the second to last person to boaRd the plane. I explained to him I had a shoetc connection to MIA and then to Frankfurter so I did not take any other luggage so I would not haveto wait. He insisted I will get my luggage as soon as I exit the plane in Houston, which I asked him 3 times . The plane was not full there were more than 10 empty seats and lots of luggage space.I got to Houstonew to be told I would have to go the the luggage belt to pick up my bag, which did not appear for half an hour after we landed. I was truly disgusted"

Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight for the most part"
Cons: "The seats in were the most cramped I've ever experienced even for economy"
Pros: "Professional way staff worked with public"
Cons: "In boarding, I was told the flight was overbooked and because I did not choose a seat prior to checking in that I would be placed on stand by after purchasing my tickets weeks before. I was highly upset and that was unfair. Long story short, at boarding they were able to give me a seat. I should have never went through that stress if I had a confirmed purchased ticket from the beginning."
Pros: "Smooth and efficient boarding process resulting in the flight actually leaving before time.Flight attendants were very friendly and polite."
Cons: "I was taken by surprise when I was required to pay for one checkin luggage. I am normally allowed one free and felt that I should have been notified beforehand."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count & cancelled around midnight. AWFUL!"
Pros: "The complimentary beverage"
Cons: "Seat space keeps getting smaller. My seat did not recline at all"
Pros: "The demeanor of the crew was warm and welcoming throughout the trip."
Cons: "The bathrooms were not very clean and hour into the trip"
Pros: "Everything really was superb. Food rated low because of a measly biscuit on a 6 hour flight. Entertainment rated low because I even had to pay to gain access to the flight tracker. And, as far as airlines go, comfort should've been 5 stars, but I really could have used a back pillow. Or even a back pillow option (had I asked an attendant - all of whom were awesome). PS. Kayak's regular emails kept me unusually updated on flight progress and their communication was the main factor in my decision to complete this survey."
Pros: "Absolutely noting."
Cons: "I purchased a return ticket from Port of Spain, Trinidad to Newark, NJ with United. I also purchased the insurance on this flight because it's good sense to be prepared. Unfortunately, I couldn't make the flight because of medical reasons and had to cancel. When I called United to purchase a new ticket, they were charging me a $200 rebooking fee plus a $30 processing fee. That's almost the price of the ticket! This is an absolutely horrible policy and very unfair. I had to rebook a new ticket with JetBlue which is 100% better, reasonable and understanding than United. Not to mention I lost the credit with united because with the rebooking and processing fee, it's almost the same price as the ticket. Because of this atrocious experience, United will never get my business again."
Pros: "It went great. The service was excellent!"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and the seats were tiny. Could not carry on a bag and it took a long time to get the bag back from having been gate checked."
Cons: "The service by the crew was awful! Airlines forget that customers pay for transportation. Sometimes hundreds to thousands of dollars. Will never use them again"
