Pros: "I had never traveled with Delta until my trip to Mexico.

Pros: "Flew into bad weather event with thunderstorms, lightning and tornadoes. The flight was relatively turbulence free, flt had only one attendant in the cabin however she was able to serve beverages and snacks asks made sure everyone was comfortable. Can't thank Delta enough for the professionalism of their crew, great service and communication, and for getting us home safely. Thank you!"

My bag landed on the belt completely open, clothes and laptop hanging out bag onto belt, bag was damaged, zipper broken with holes in the fabric, bag was soaking wet!

Pros: "Me atendieron muy bien , tuve un excelente viaje"
Pros: "Good choice of video programs."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Late pickup, then no gate at stopover causing is to miss our flight as we sat on the tarmac. Got on next flight, 5 hours later, the literal last row of the plane right in front of the bathroom, you know, those seats that don't recline? Travelling with a cranky two year old, made pains to select seats for maximum child comfort and it all flew out the window. Arrived at destination and sat, again, waiting for a gate. Signed up for sky miles previously based on good experiences, but this was one lane thing after another. Advice? Don't act like you're doing me a favor when asking people to check bags cause then it's "free"."
Cons: "Gate attendant was extraordinarily rude"
Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."

Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."

Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"

Pros: "Nice food"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."

Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."

Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"

Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice!"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "Between first flight from Venice to get the airplane to San Juan just 50 minutes. We were running to get a board"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket, checked bags were included in the price. When I got to the counter, they said no and I paid $80, which was more than the flight for two cost. When I tried to use my frequent flyer account to pay for the bags, they said I couldn’t, although I had over $200 in credit. Very bad service! Very bad!"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "The seats are really small. Even for people not considered tall."
Pros: "Some of the crew were fantastic while some of the others were pretty mediocre. The plane was quite nice"
Cons: "Some of the crew were fantastic while some of the others were pretty mediocre. They didn't have agua con gas (soda water). The toilets were not kept clean and got pretty messy. Just a bit sloppy overall..."

Cons: "Service was slow and sparse"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "The check in process is terrible and very inefficient."
Pros: "Everything was fine and smooth"
Cons: "Crew was friendly to some people and completely ignored others, or at least me. Not sure if they knew Passenger status or what."
Pros: "The aircraft comfort"
Cons: "Do the checking before not 15 min before the departure"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work. Seats were ridiculously small but it got me to Paris safe and sound, and that’s what matters most."
Cons: "All processed food. GMO’s. No organic options."
Cons: "The space between seats was just microscopic. I’m 6ft tall and I really had a bad time in those 2h30, all twisted and unconfortable."
Cons: "very rude gate crew. impatient and not helpful. they need a new job if they are so miserable."
Pros: "It was a very busy due to the fact that we,left 40imutes late and Iberia was also late when we left Madrid but they took care of me to make sure I did not miss the connecting flight"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "I never got on this flight."
Cons: "I was at the airport more than 2 hours ahead of my flight time. By the time I made it through check in, security, and immigration, I was already cutting it close. A random security check right at the gate made me miss my flight. There were no timely options to re-route my flight unless it was at a fee of over >$2,000. Horrible, stressful, experience."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Very tight seats. I’m not that tall and my knees were hitting the seat in front"
Pros: "Flight to our destination: sat in exit row for extra cost. I was freezing cold and was told no extra blankets. Also staff were rude and unhelpful telling us to remove all things from the floor for take off and landing ( which i accept is the policy) but since we had nowhere to put them except on our laps (she’s, books, sweaters pocket book) as there is no seat in front for an exit row to put under. The staff member kept saying “up, up” motioning with her hand, but made no offer to assist us in finding overhead space. Upon our return flight, our pre booked exit row seats were switched on us right before boarding in a rude and matter of fact wayand my husband and I were separated one on either side of the aircraft. When we queried this, we were told it would be up to us to switch with the person sitting next to us. Overall very disappointing. I would not fly Iberia again."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "No WiFi on a 10 hour flight!"
Cons: "Missed connection due to Iberia. Rerouted to JFK after overnight delay and had to transfer to Newark. Upon arrival at Newark, which we had to arrange, we were notified that the flight was changed back to JFK. Turned a 12 hour travel day into 36. Horrid experience."
Pros: "Nice newer plane Both USB and power ports"
Cons: "There was a horrible stench of sewage much of the flight Meal choices were very limited Entertainment was pretty limited The wifi has a 200 MB limit -- I blew threw it despite spending 30 Euros -- that's never happened to me before One of the flight attendants was really out of it"
Pros: "The color that crew members wear"
Cons: "I arrived 2 hr.30 min and regardless of having bought my ticket long time ago, October, I was placed standby because an overbooking of the plane. The agent in the counter claimed that they could do that because was "legal to overbook". One of the agents at the gate when I went to get my seat indicated that I paid for a "cheap ticket" and that I should take whatever seat they have left. I was given 46E. I was thrown my food on my table. I asked for the pasta option because I do not eat beef. She said: "That's what we have, we do not have more food. You are flying economy class". I was mistreated badly."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, polite and attentive"
Cons: "I stopped at the Iberia check-in at Barajas in Madrid. They sent me to BA check-in, where I waited 45 minutes to find out that I should be at Iberia check-in. Then, Iberia check-in had to send me to last minute clerk or I would have missed my flight. Last minute check-in ended up being the same place and same clerk I began with."
Pros: "Philadelphia to London"
Pros: "Entertainment package consisting of up-to-date TV shows/ series and movies that have recently been released. The time passed by faster than expected with this. The meal plan was better than some restaurants. With Meatballs being the main course followed by rice & veggies and finished with the sugar cake."
Cons: "Having the seat by the bathroom. Even though passengers were instructed not to form a line, they did and were encroaching in my personal space for the majority of the flight. Though this is not an airline issue, it did effect the comfort of the 4.6hr flight."
Pros: "Absolutely on time!"
Cons: "The boarding was slow"
Pros: "Good crew in providing good service with a smile. Smoth take off, flight and landing Good choices in dinner with wine"
Cons: "Below avera ge breakfast with no hot items besides cofee/ tea Poorly organized boarding. Staff person with the microfone and staff controlling the lne were not in sink, gave confusing instructions. Too much noise in the abin with the lights out due to the presence of lots of high schoolers talking Distance between seats kind of small"
Pros: "Easygoing friendly staff"
Cons: "Lack of organization"
Pros: "Smoothest flight ever"
Cons: "No beverage of any sort offered"
Pros: "The codeshare system with American is so far from seamless! The messed up the seat assignment that I paid for and tried to make me feel like it was my fault! It was a huge hassle to change."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Despite seeing a crew bring 3 pieces of luggage to the plane, since the cargo was closed they turned around and 1 of those was my luggage which arrived a day later. The flight was late departing and then required to circle the airport and then the luggage did not make it."
Cons: "My ticket said operated by British Airways so after an hour of standing in line - why there were two agents baffles me-- I was told to go stand in the Iberia one. I went to a kiosk and it didn't recognize my flight, so I finally got ahold of someone. The night before I was unable to check in because their site had crashed, so there was no way for me to know where to go."
Pros: "Super quick boarding"
Cons: "Have to pay for water & coffee, etc."
Pros: "My flight boarded easily, and left on time. The seats were comfortable, the food included a hot meal for dinner, and the entertainment available was varied. We even landed in Madrid a little early. Traveling is always trying, especially in coach. The Iberia experience was very pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing really stands out unless you want to make coach like 1st class for the same price"
Pros: "I like that it was a plane not so big, and there was more space between seats (more leg room) than in similar flights overseas in British Airways planes; the crew was always very friendly and the entertainment very good, lots of good movies to chose from!"
Cons: "The only thing I really did not like of this flight was that it was delayed For about three hours, which affected my plans in the arrival destination"
Cons: "food not bad but could be better"
Pros: "Crew was very not ve however flight was delayed causing no us to run to our connecting flight to Miami."
Cons: "No free snacks were provided on this flight."
Pros: "Short 2 hour hop to Heathrow, adequate seating, nothing challenging about this flight. Barcelona airport is very user friendly, open and expansive. Service was good on the flight."
Cons: "Landed at heathrow, which is a sprawling airport and plenty of time required for the endless walking, bussing, and subway connections between terminals and gates. But efficient."
Cons: "This is a horrible airlline. No inoformation or connecting here info in Madrid, no agents anywhere to be found. Online check-in malfunctions food was the worst food I ever saw. Airline causes huge amount of unecessary sress."
Pros: "Enternainment selections were ok."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not helpful, indeed they were dismissive. I asked one for ice and she told me they had no ice. Bullocks."
Pros: "Promptness. Easy boarding. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Staff helpful Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Easy to get lost in airport Only flight map on overhead screens"
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable compared to Emirates and other US Airlines."
Cons: "Crew only came around during service time. More choices on Food"
Pros: "One of the best landings I ever experience. Nice crew. On time."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Great flight until we couldn’t land in StLouis."
Pros: "The flight departed early and arrived early, good flight attendant service"
Cons: "Long wait on the cold jetbridge for our carryon baggage, tight quarters on the plane"
Pros: "I had absolutely no complaints about this trip"
Cons: "Electrical service was spotty"
Cons: "Custom agents were rude."
Cons: "Luggage took >1hr. Flew w Copa - always got bad seats when on United flights"
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice (3+hours total) then we had to wait another 40 minutes for the plane to get there, deplane, and get cleaned up and restocked."
Pros: "Crew was very nice under difficult conditions"
Cons: "Flight was late, baggage was damaged"
Pros: "The flight was listed as a 50 minute flight. The boarding was great, and very fast and efficient, but there was news that Air Force One was scheduled to land at our destination, so the flight left a bit early. Upon reaching altitude, the plane made record time. 50 minutes was cut down to under 30 from take-off to landing. The attendant was barely on the last row (a charter plane) from serving drinks, before the cart had to be put away for landing."
Cons: "The seats were tiny and my neighbor and I were both a bit taller and stockier than perhaps an average passenger (220lbs)."
Cons: "flight was over two hours late because of a late incoming plane. That may be for good reason, but we weren't told until less than one hour before takeoff. It doesn't make sense that the airline just found out one hour before takeoff that the flight was two hours behind. We should have been told sooner about the delay, while we had other choices of alternate flights."
Cons: "This plane was awful. I don't know how anyone who is not miniature sized could be comfortable on this plane. I am 6' 1" and ~ 200 lbs, not huge by any means, but not tiny. I legitimately could not stand up (so I had to sort of slouch walk down the aisle to find my seat at the back of the plane), then the seats themselves were so narrow that I ached terribly when seated in any position for more than acouple of minutes."
Pros: "From check in at IAH to a 15 min early arrival everything ran smoothly and on time. Pleasant trip."
Pros: "That the flight was earlier then Expected"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "It was late"
Cons: "Flight was 3 1/2 hours delayed. Missed my original connection. Missed the second connection because (as the attendants told us) they were unable to get ANY flight information to inform the passengers of where their connecting flight was. They were also pretty snotty and acted like it was our fault that we might miss a flight. I'm now sitting in Houston for the final flight of the day."
Pros: "Ease of checking in by phone & printing out board passes."
Cons: "That the ride was so rough. Pilot apologized & said it was just a bad nite. It was a smaller plane so that maybe made the turbulence feel worse too."
Pros: "We got my wife on a plane home in under four hours."
Cons: "United decided to bump some of their glorified bus drivers ahead of me on standby so I had to wait a full four hours in O'Hare listening to some doichebag from LA try to entertain folks at the Goose Island bar with his stories about selling franchises."
Pros: "It was fast & we didn't die we're the only good things"
Cons: "The Flight attendant was rude and mean , the plane was small and old .. But most of all he flight attendant ruined the flight for everyone. I even heard people saying she was mean as they were getting off the flight. I think her career as a flight attendant has ran its course (she was pretty old also)"
Pros: "Flight was delayed..boarding for St Louis was one of the worse flights I have ever seen..crew was rude..asked for a juice and she was mad because I didn't finish it..very uncomfortable flight..small plane."
Cons: "Got home"
Pros: "I really liked that the flight attendants came through to offer drinks and pick up trash several times and not just once, even after the turbulence that we had. I really liked the alternative wafers instead of the traditional trail mix or peanuts."
Cons: "I have no complaints with my flight, but I would sincerely appreciate if United offered some kind of neck pillow or a thin rolled up blanket for extra comfort on longer flights (5+ hours). These minor comforts are forgotten when packing my own bags when worrying about everything else."
Pros: "Still not in stl"
Cons: "Still not in stl"
Pros: "United really could have done better informing us of delay, then cancellation. I knew it was likely to be delayed due to weather, and kept checking the status. It wasn't listed as delayed until nearly boarding time, although it seems pretty clear they knew well before that. But SFO was a star. The new decor is sophisticated and comfortable. Bathrooms were like at a swanky night club! Comfy chairs and charging outlets every where. The biggest hit was the Exploratorium installation, which kept my and plenty of other kids entertained!"
Cons: "Wayfinding signage from BART is confusing. BART connection is a pain. The machines in the station only take $1 and $5 bills-- no 20s or credit cards! And no one at BART cares if you are running late for a flight."
Pros: "The plane was unboarded due to mechanical problem but a new plane was found and within an hour we were back on board. Appreciate the quick turnaround."
Pros: "Nothing. It's just ok."
Cons: "Nothing, just ok."
Pros: "UAL customer service horrible. Would not pay for a hotel room we needed due to UAL canceling our flight. Customer service reps few & far between UAL bus at Terminal C gate 71 at 10p 9/30/2016 had rude employees refusing to acknowledge is or help rather they listened to music on their cell phones. FIRE THEM."
Cons: "The snacks are too small."
Cons: "STINGY DRINK SERVINGS TINY SNACK BAGS"
Pros: "2 hours delay. Seems a trend with United domestic flights (technical problems, not the weather issues). United should review flight schedule to consider the delay so the passengers don't have to be a victim of those delays."
Cons: "Delay!! After traveling 20+ hours internationally, 2 hours delay on the last leg really is a big burden."
Cons: "Flight got camcelled made me late to duty station"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hrs after my 4 hr layover"
Cons: "Some other carriers offer wifi inflight service free of charge. I tried connecting to wifi in flight with no success several times."
Pros: "newer plane. more personal space per seat"
Pros: "Leg room in seats better than on some airlines. Staff friendly."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. One hour going and two hours on return."
Cons: "Our flight got canceled due to airport issues at our destination. United canceled the flight but had no alternative flights to get us home. Flights the next day were full. Took over an hour with the service desk to reroute tickets to cancel them and to get bags back then took two hours at baggage claim to get the bags back. Customer service was basically useless. After all that, we didn't get any of our money back! I will be avoiding United airlines. Flight cancelation was not their fault but the way they handled the rest of it was embarrassing."
Pros: "The young lady who was the flight attendant was very nice and tried to make a very bad situation somewhat bearable. There were a number of children on the flight that she was very attentive to. I hope united treats their employees better than they treat their passengers."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours. We were told to proceed to the United terminal in spite of the delay. There seemed to be no effort to inform or assist us. There was very little to do in this terminal but wait to see if our flight would eventually come. There were other United passengers in the terminal who were also waiting for overly delayed flights. eventually, we had a plane that was extremely small, cramped and uncomfortable. United seems to consistently oversell its seats and then tried to get people to give up their seats. Very poorly managed airline with bad customer service. Sadly, I have to say that I have never had an acceptable experience on a united flight. Will NOT take another United flight."
Pros: "Same as above. Did notice the woman staffing the counter at boarding having extreme patience with people's problems and non problems. She was great and deserves a raise. Denver gate B 85 between 1:00 and 3:00 6/15/16."
Pros: "I liked that they waited for me because my flight was late getting in to San Francisco."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Take forever to load. No entertainment. Hard, uncomfortable seats, no food. Kept talking about "premiere plus" benefits. Why does it cost $80 to have not bad service?"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "airport gate lady would't let me run to the bathroom and quickly return for my checked carry-on for "security reasons." Then I heard about 4-5 people being paged to come pick up their checked carry-on luggage."
Cons: "lost our bag, crying babies, uncomfortable plane"
Pros: "The flight was very pleasurable. Smooth takeoff."
Pros: "I was comfortable and I didn't die."
Pros: "Had to wait standby but got on the flight. Was very happy about that!!"
Cons: "It was not on united because it kept getting delayed."
Cons: "System was screwed up, boarding was a nightmare."
Pros: "Nothing. I am stranded in an airport. Delayed nearly 14 hours. American airlines fixed the issue since united could not. Never again."
Cons: "Everything. I am stranded in an airport. My original flight was at 10:05pm. My new flight is at 11:45am. American airlines stepped up and helped me get a flight out earlier. I am now on a one stop flight instead of non stop, even though I paid for direct. Not very happy and will not use untied again."
Cons: "Cramped space."
Pros: "Flight itself wasn't bad but huge delay and almost cancellation"
