I love to travel With Virgin, made to feel special even in economy seats

Food, seating and sound of the entertainment

Delayed. Missed connecting and no customer service given at any time.

Service and friendliness

Crew service is good No WiFi , even purchased not good Food is OK Boarding is below average, we have 4 people in a group but we were assigned in the back with different seats. When we asked to change seats we were told the flight was very full and no extra seats available. When we were on the plane we saw lots of empty seats in the middle and front area. Feel gate service desk or Virgin Atlantic need to improve their services.

Have traveled with V.A. to Florida for over 15years. Unfortunately post covid or flights were disappointing. We really miss the Jumbo as the new planes are smaller & grotty. We traveled out “first class” - it was anything but first class. There is now a third row of seats and the bar that had been in the first class cabin was gone. They ran out of meal choices- cobbled together a cream tea as they ran short of those too. There were no small bottles on the way out. The only thing pleasant about our outward journey was the staff who were lovely. Our return journey was Premium Economy, it was 100 times worse. The food was disgusting & once again they ran out of meal choices. There were no snacks ( pretzels) with our drinks - this time there was only two pleasant stewardesses the rest were “unfriendly “ bordering on rude!! We used to get a nice bottle of water in the back of our seats - pre covid these bottles had shrunk to half size & now non existent? We were offered a plastic cup of water- which we had to sit between our seats when the lights went out & unseen after several hours - got knocked over!! This never happened with the bottles? To add insult to injury Virgin have switched the Orlando flight to Edinburgh- we flew over Glasgow on the way out & the way back and spoke to several people who were just as unhappy as we were- what was wrong with Glasgow? Honestly Virgin have lost the plot- old aircraft -( on the way home) unpleasant Manchester crew ( what’s wrong with a Scottish crew from Scotland?) Unfortunately in the north of the UK we’re not spoiled for choice the only direct flights being Virgin (now Edinburgh) or as my son advised Tui - who apparently do I very good Premium Economy from Glasgow. Given my recent experience- I feel that my 20 years travelling with Virgin may have come to an end!

The planes auxiliary engine wasn't working, which meant we had no a/c when the plane was sat on the apron leading to very high temperatures before take off and on landing at orlando

Dumped us at a stand and buses took ages to show up.

Easy check in and flight very smooth. Arrived early! Perfect

I was harassed by The security officials at Heathrow terminal 3. They were abusive rude and had no etiquette of how to talk to passengers. They kept all my stuff which is legally allowed here in the US. It was all under 3 oz. The guy in black suit literally said to me “ if I say one word they will take more time to let me go”. The check in lines were long took me 2.5hrs and then I almost missed the flight. The security people yelled at me and literally made me cry. I felt insulted and abused..

The Delta plane was super uncomfortable and the food was terrible.

The in flight crew were not friendly. One flight attendant in particular kept passing by and hit me really hard with her body as she passed by and never once apologized or said excuse me. I’m his startled me every time. I got a drink only 2 times in 9 hours and when I asked for a drink of water I did not get. Also when I put the call button on, no one came. This made me sad as I’ve been very polite as always and I don’t fly with any other airlines.

Nothing

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great and not a lot of it. London to Orlando was good. Connection was good."
Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."
Pros: "Everything! From check-in all the way to the landing of the plane I was really satisfied! There were a couple crew members that really made the flight feel so at-home/friendly that one could not help but just smile and relax in the flight. Awesome job crew on Flight VA69!"
Cons: "I wish my partner and his family were with my parents and I on the flight to enjoy the experience we had as well."
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Cons: "Nowt"
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."
Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"
Cons: "Bad entertainment system"
Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."
Pros: "Everything (with the exception of the subject below), thank you. One thing that really surprised me, though, is how much I liked the eggs (on both flights) and what went with the eggs, like the spinach and potatoes and bacon on this flight and the potatoes and sausage (and was there something else?) on the next flight. Kudos for making something that has got to be cheap taste good. Thanks."
Cons: "Come to think of it, there was one thing that I didn't particularly like, and that was how the headphones only worked on one side only (there was only audio on one side). At first I thought that maybe I had just gotten bad headphones, but the my next flight was the same: the headphones also only played audio on one side."
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Cons: "Staff"
Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Pros: "Good Service. Great attitude of flight attendants..early arrival. smooth flight."
Cons: "despite purchasing 'extra legroom' seats, it was still very, very crowded and tight."
Cons: "the food selection did not meet my diet restrictions. Found it hard to avoid due to hunger over the duration"
Cons: "I had to be rebooked on a later flight due to weather in London; this was obviously not the airline's fault. Because I took a later flight I missed my connection in London."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The seats are a bit uncomfortable for such long flights. Crue was excellent"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Pros: "The food was AMAZING. No, seriously. Everything we had was great."
Pros: "Helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay at the airport due to system down where agents had to check in everyone manually"
Pros: "Everything from boarding to disembarking went very smoothly. Flight was on time, seats were comfortable and crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Delayed 40mins"
Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."
Cons: "One toilet not working"
Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."
Pros: "This was my 3rd time to fly to Brisbane, Australia. Love flying with Virgin Australia. They have great service and friendly staff."
Cons: "I brought my own padded seat, but it is a long flight, so it's best to get up and walk around as much as you can."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome in premium economy"
Cons: "The plane was really dirty!!!!"
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Cons: "The cabin was extremely dirty, the food was awful."

Lost our luggage, needs better service in airport. No one was helpful

Crew had enough time to pay a bit more attention to passengers. The service level of Lufthansa has been very poor in the past 2 years and I will fly from now on with other airlines where possible. This in particular considering that Lufthansa increased their prices above average.

I will never use kayak again. Their confirmation numbers are useless to the airlines. They cannot represent the airline. I was blocked from getting a seat assignment when I booked the flight. Their service is useless. I will also never book a flight serviced by another airline. Confirmation numbers are unique to each airline. The only one that matters is the one assigned by the airline servicing the flight. In my experience, Kayak doesn’t exist. It was just a front. I was forced to deal with a company called Chat Deal. Never heard of them. Never want to deal with them again. Awful.

The boarding process and flight were very easy and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and kind—they obviously enjoy their work. My only recommendation for improvement is the website and application. It is very confusing to navigate and could be improved with UX in mind.

Late Logged to expensive but 😠 lost Now family weekend without stuff

Love Lufthansa

Seat and knee space is narrow.

Space was very poor and earphones awful. Mixed on staff, some good, some bad!

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We purchased seats with extra legroom. They were well worth the extra cost as we were very comfortable."

Cons: "I will fly Lufthansa every chance I get."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "Wasn’t Lufthansa, was Singapore Airline from Ny to Frankfurt.Was excellent definitely."
Pros: "Nice big plane, good/frequent beverage service."
Cons: "Didn’t arrive on time. Breakfast was weird and flavorless."

Pros: "Flew Lufthansa- Started On-time, landed ahead of time, service was wonderful, ride was good overall. Crew was excellent!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly an apologetic for the delay. We had more space on the 1h inner-German connection flight than on our 7h international overnight flight with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Flight departed Duesseldorf an hour late and waited ont he ground in Munich for another 10 minutes before the gateway was connected. Not a problem for us since we were at our final destination but clearly a frustration for many of our fellow passengers. The cereal bar was a nutritional disaster and the the artifical fruit taste was simply awful. Tastes as if LH gets paid for distributing it."
Pros: "friendly, capable crew."
Cons: "Moved to accommodate bigger passengers. Moved to a seat where the movie list was shortened (crew said all the TVs hadn't been updated yet), seat didn't recline (last row), and it was bright and noisy (galley behind me)."
Cons: "It was awful. The staff was more concerned with flirting with guests than everyone else. The seats were absolutely terrible. Getting off the flight the flight attendant had her back turned to everyone but made sure that the guests in first class were greeted as they discarded the air craft. As soon as she left everyone else from economy off the plane she didn’t even say have a good day, rather she had a nasty look on her face. This will be the last time I fly Lufthansa."
Pros: "The flight left almost on time. I was surprised that a meal was served on a two hour flight"
Cons: "It took a long time to get off the plane."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Still didn't get to destination. Two hours delayed was enough to make me miss the connection flight which result in a extra 7 hours wait in Munich for a 9 hours total. But they compensate all that with a 10 euros voucher, well worth the trouble."
Pros: "I enjoyed the meal service, drinks and entertainment."
Cons: "My final leg of the trip was delayed by 3 hours, making us sit on the plane. I missed my connection in Minneapolis. Not happy because the airline did nothing to help me get home."

Cons: "2.5 h delay"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "its was very very bad bad bad bad its a shame for them very not good bed bed"
Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."
Pros: "Great customer service by flight attendants and the food."
Pros: "Comfortable, crew are very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Food isn't that good"
Pros: "Service and food were excellent. Plane was clean, on time, smooth ride."
Cons: "Need slightly more leg room in seats"
Pros: "Lufthansa went out of their way to provide a meal accommodating my son's food allergies. I was quite impressed, since it was beyond their standard/listed offerings."

Very slow boarding and a huge arrival delay resulted in many missed connecting flights. Luckily we were not one of those. Barely made it to our transfer.

Wi-Fi didn’t work. Boarding was totally confusing. Guy next to me took more then his area. Constantly touching me pushing on me. Had a bag blocking getting out. Almost fell. Crew didn’t help

Flight delayed 5 hours

The flight from Rome to Ams was delayed. The flight from AMS to Moscow was missed. - We spent 2h in a linewaiting for the service desk to rebook the tickets - Then, we spend more than an hour to get the hotel - Then waiting for the shuttle another 30 minutes Unexpectedly poor and slow service. The next working day is ruined with the flight in the middle

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."
Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."
Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Good services!"
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
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: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Cons: "sardines!"
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Seat"

The flight itself was fine and the pilots were great. The crew was awful - the purser WOULD NOT SHUT UP, they ran out of food, I would not serve the “beef” dinner option to my dog. The boarding process was a clusterfuck-no announcements were made about boarding groups, and when we did get on the plane, attendants were blocking the aisles taking orders for the premier lounge and not letting the poors get to their seats

Order soecial meal early!

Small plane not fully booked and on time

Missed this flight because of delays. Ended up in Newark for 24 additional hours. Lovely!

Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Direct tv sucks! Had to watch trailer 3 times before movie started. If switched to another movie it started part way. Flight attendants instead of one long announcement made three announcements few seconds between thus cutting in and out of movie."
Cons: "working bathroom and entertainment system"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Snarky flight attendant. Plane was late."
Cons: "When flight is delayed (by taxing for 45min or delayed take off of 3h40) allow passengers who are trying to connect disembark first."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Seating is kind of cramped. More legroom would be appreciated."
Pros: "The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They were built for Asians & old people who were smaller. Please understand that the descendants of Norway Germany & Native Americans are large people, we require a larger seat! I was stuffed into this seat so tight that today I will have to see a chirop."
Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"
Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a technical issue and then the plane was very cold for most of the flight. And they said my green-tagged carry on would be at the gate when I arrived in Richmond. But then we arrived and they put it at baggage claim instead where we had to wait 20 minutes for it. Too many things were not comfortable or convenient on this particular flight."
Cons: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."
Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."
Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."
Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"
Cons: "cushion on the seats are a bit dead. I wish they notified us of gate changes at O'Hare."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of the airline"
Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"
Cons: "Being 6'6" on a super small plane is never too much fun"
Pros: "I arrived without dying or the plane crashing."
Cons: "The plane interior was was cramped, old, dirty, and held together with caulk. I'm not a big person, but this plane interior was designed for midgets or children. Needs to be modernized, updated, and cleaned! I did not feel safe on this flight. Also, this flight was delayed for no apparent reason in Newark, which is also a poorly designed airport with confusing gates which are placed too close together so announcements are not clear."
Pros: "Food for purchase"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for 2 hours and not being offered food or drink or to be taken back to the gate"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "That they lost my bags"
Pros: "The seats on this United flight were far more comfortable than the longer Seattle-Chicago hop. We had more legroom, too."
Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"
Pros: "Flight was delayed and Captain explained reason as Newark Airport Traffic Control. Further delay was experienced after taxiing and Captain kept us informed. Seats were marginally ok and flight crew was attentive. Had a soda and a small bag of pretzels. Overall, it was an ok flight."
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Cons: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The over all experience"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."
Pros: "They were very understanding organization. The flight kept changing . It was like that coming and going"
Cons: "They were very un organization the flight was changed both coming and going it messed my plans up on going and coming and no one cared."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The delay from Cancun caused us to miss our connection. The ground crew gave no help, information, or baseline customer service. We were referred to one person after the other only to finally end up in a 3hour line at customer service where we were told we miss the ground transportation and would have to find our own way home. We rented a car from Hertz and drove to Richmond arriving at 5:30am.... very disappointing."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing good to say. Unaccommodating plane and crew."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing good to say. Unaccommodating plane and crew. Pay a little more and don't fly United"
Pros: "Once the plane was good to go everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."
Pros: "I wasnt on plane long"
Cons: "Our flight was continuously delayed. Our layover actually took than the the drive from DC to Richmond would have taken. I also misplaced my phone on the flight and had no help when I called United looking for assistance today."
Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "They changed our gate from one end of the terminal to another right at the time of boarding and made no announcements. We all found out by text or had to be told by other passengers."
Pros: "personal service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, so I cancel my flight with United and went with another airline that was ontime."
Cons: "Nothing was fine"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "I cancelled this flight.....not sure why Kayak keeps sending me these emails."
Pros: "I liked Salt like city, Provi, Sundance, Park city"
Cons: "but the united service is terrible, they cancelled my first flight an nobody offer a solution, i only can get ther because I called to the United call center on time... They move me to Delta, so much better"
