Cons: "The breakfast- scrambled eggs and little hotdogs. Relatively tasteless."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "The attendants were in a bad mood and/or unhappy with their jobs. Short answers - not very friendly, but this isn't uncommon on Copa flights. I give them a "zero" on personality."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "food will be better."
Cons: "We had to spend a date in Caracas because they over book the flight."

Cons: "I was in line 1.5 hours before my flight and was told that I had to take the next flight. There was even another passenger behind me who apparently made the flight. The lady behind the desk appeared to be junior staff and had to wait numerous time to ask her co-workers for help. By the time they helped her, she told me that it was too late to make the flight (even though I discovered later that the departure time was even postponed)! As a result, I arrived in Medellin 4-5 hours later than planned, causing me to miss a tour that I had scheduled for that afternoon, for which I was not refunded. First time using Copa Airlines was unfortunately not a good one."
Pros: "Nothing, really, except that our luggage arrived with us."
Cons: "Absurd boarding area in Panama. Totally third world, or maybe a livestock holding pen is a better description. You have to go through security screening at the gate AGAIN, so those ridiculous $5 bottles of water you just bought to survive the wait in the overcrowded, hot waiting area? Throw them away or drink now, says the screening agent. I will never take a flight with a connection in Panama again."

Pros: "Excellente attention flying, very friendly, very nice and clean inside the airplanes."
Cons: "Need more personal at the counters servicing people when checking in at the airport in Panama."
Pros: "Great flight and crew; great value."

Cons: "They ran out of the different food options and drinks. I"

Cons: "There needs to be some snack options in business class after the light meal."
Cons: "Our flight was in two (2) segments. One from Santiago, Chile to Panama City, Panama and, two from Panama City, Panama to Boston, MA USA. Our flight from Panama City, Panama to Boston, MA USA was cancelled due to snow. Not the Copa fault; however, rebooking the flight from Santiago back through Panama to Boston was very difficult even though we call the day prior after noticing the cancelled flight on the Copa website. We were successful; however, it took multiple calls and multiple delays on hold to make it happen. No e-mail confirmation was ever received; however, we were able to confirm the flight via the website. We were also unable to confirm the flight status on the website. Maybe it was a special flight or something, but from the customers view, it was discomforting."
Pros: "In flight staff was very friendly and attentive. Especially Miguel who put forth extra effort trying to help us find transportation options to our hotel at the time of day we arrived."
Cons: "The only thing that was inconvenient was that because of the mode of travel (private flight) we used to get to San Jose, we had to sit at the airport for almost 5 hrs and even though there were at least three other Copa flights to Panama City, they were all overbooked and we Were not able to change to an earlier flight."
Cons: "No individual media screens for 5+ hour flight. Had individual screens on the flight down. Also, had to go through security again at the gate in Panama city which meant getting rid of water purchased within the terminal and there was no where within the security parameter to buy water."

She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me.

Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late.

Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
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 delayed by over three hours."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "KLM sent us to Kiev thru Stambul (Turkey). We have spent 8 hours more on flights."

Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"
Cons: "Airport experience was inefficient. Long unattractive walk, boarding was tedious: the automatic check-in was not helpful and required so many more staff. Random security check was redundant and chaotic."
Pros: "I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )"
Cons: "When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The food was awful and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."
Pros: "Very quiet"
Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Separated me and my wife for the whole flight! Could not accommodate us together. This reservation was made over 6 weeks ago !!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Didn’t have the meal I ordered Got in 30 min early but no gate for us. We waited over 80min on tarmac to deplane I paid extra for an exit seat but there was no indication when I did that there would be walls for armrests and that made it very uncomfortable for me"
Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Pros: "The plane arrived in New York smoothly"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and have no information as to where it is. It has been 3 days and no Information. There was only one meal for the flight and alcoholic beverages were not included."
Cons: "The company simply lets passengers board a fulled booked flight with far too much luggage. Result, take off 20 minutes late because there was not enough room for luggage in the overhead compartments. I was flying with just a small backpack that went under the seat"
Pros: "The airbus 380 was great and the staff very nice"
Cons: "Too mych bad smells after a few hours"
Pros: "Nothing special"

Pros: "All was good we didn’t feel the time 9 hours passed easily"
Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"

Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) Front seat pocket bulging with 2 extra-thick in-flight magazines 2) No on-board wifi 3) Not much seating room - very thin"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "Premium Economy on AF Boeing 777 on this route is not "a little less than Business", but rather "a little more than Economy". Seats, in a 2-4-2 configuration, are hard but OK, as well as the pitch. Good screens and entertainment."
Cons: "With the main meal, AF serves only "ordinary wine", This looks and tastes cheap. On the same route and class, Vietnam Airlines serves premium wines, a nice touch that would not cost fortunes to AF! Also, the "Asian" choice for the main course did not look and taste like the real thing."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered."
Cons: "A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Pros: "Excellent choice of movies. Great service. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I requested a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, which I received. However, it appears the meal was also vegan. Normally, that would be okay except one of the two standard meal choices was also vegetarian and seemed much better. Since I had selected lacto-ovo vegetarian, it seems I was not allowed to select the standard vegetarian option. Hard not to have cheese on an Air France flight - just saying :-)"
Pros: "The fast boarding."
Cons: "The long wait without the air conditioning until our slot in the takeoff list became available."
Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Ground service at check-in was very poor: Misinformation and failure to provide a level of service that other SkyMiles partners provide for Gold level traveler."

Cons: "Although incoming plane arrived late, flight home arrived 20 minutes early."

Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."
Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"

Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "In spite of delay caused by luggage to be taken of the aircraft, flight arrived to a Rome on time.captain kept us well informed of the reasons for delay. Boarding was done efficiently with care for people with children and elderly passangers."
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Cons: "The flight was late and the info was not shared. The attendants were not helpful and were unkind. The food was served in a strange timing."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Cons: "queing; crampped seats"
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "The inflight crew was great. The film sound failed part of the way into the flight."
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic and confused. Many passengers complained. But the MUCH bigger issue was we weren't told until we got to the airport that NO bags were included as part of the fare. We had three (we are traveling around the world). Yes, when I looked back at the bottom of the reservation there was a note that said bags not included, but as this is such a significant thing, I think it should be made much clearer. I direct feature films and travel a great, great deal. I rarely make my own reservations, to be fair, but I still think this is worth noting. In the end I just bumped my wife and I up to Business class, but for others who can't afford it, I think you should make this clearer. I will write to your facebook page etc later in the hope you will get the message. That said, again, your flight crew was great."
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Cons: "No internet on flight"
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"

Pros: "Service was great. The plane was big and confortable."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Pros: "Media/entertainment great for Santiago London leg. Not so mucho for the London Srockholm part."
Cons: "Food was kind of bland."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."
Pros: "The in flight movie options were great, and the food and beverages were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the first most important part is to depart on time keeping in mind the customers schedule as well that are travelling with the airline. No communication between the airline and ground department, was not happy at all and probably not fly unites again. Also they charge bags?"
Pros: "The whole experience was fine, as expected for today’s standard."
Cons: "Boarding would be better if the window seats go first, followed by middle seats then aisle seats."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Hard to come up with something"
Cons: "Remarkably, airline was unaware of FAA regulation requiring window seat for Portable Oxygen. Switched at the last minute to the last row, which does not recline. Thus sheer misery for someone with back trouble. Wi-fi also inoperative. Plus, the panel on the siding was loose snd vibrated the whole time."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, AND the flight was pretty empty so I got to spread out over 3 seats to sleep. A treat!"
Pros: "The flight time was short"
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed cold and distracted I was done of the last to board because I came off a connecting flight. And I was made to check my carry-on at the gate, however when I boarded the plane I saw plenty of overhead room. The carry-on bag that I had to check was scoffed."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Too many people, too little space. Only two bathrooms for 114 people."
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Pros: "Was flying biz class and the audio wasn’t working. The flight attendant tried her best but only was able to reboot over and over again. But she didn’t offer a voucher or anything for the lack of a sound system."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "I paid for extra space and it satisfy my needs."
Cons: "The personnel service during the flight was mediocre. In my opinion they don’t know what is customer satisfaction. They have to show that they like what they do with a simple smile. They are not doing the customer a favor . That is their job a good customer satisfaction"
Pros: "A flight attendant went out of her way to bring my wife some nuts from first class, since she said she missed having the packages of nuts and pretzels in economy."
Cons: "The stand-by for business class upgrade process is anything but clear."
Pros: "Punctual flight, fabulous flight attendants, and the best airline food I’ve eaten in a long time. I can’t remember the last time passengers were given a menu to order food from ."
Cons: "No WiFi on board"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Always feels cramped, food not good."
Pros: "The boarding process was orderly and efficient. The crew were pleasant and courteous."
Cons: "The entertainment touch screens on seat backs are difficult and frustrating to use, the mouse is difficult to control."
Pros: "Same as my previous flight, the crew was outstanding. Had to avoid a rain storm and no turbulence. The stewardess was great! Everything went well!"
Cons: "Again same as above, comfort was a major hindrance. Hard to get comfortable. Wish the airlines could make seating arrangements a little larger!! Otherwise the experience was great!"
Pros: "Good communication on delayed flight. Clean plane. Provided snacks."
Cons: "Pretty sure the crew was exhausted."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant crew"
Cons: "The flight was over 3 hours delayed (we took off later than we were planned to arrive). The boarding process was very long with frequent delays. There was no sense of urgency to board quickly. Once we were boarded we sat at the sky bridge for another 10-15 minutes before departing."
Pros: "I liked that the plane didn't crash"
Cons: "The TV played a commercial that advertised all the shows and movies you could watch which lasted the duration of the flight WITHOUT the option to turn the TV off. Maddening. Just madness."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Leg room was very crowded Baggage pickup was 1/2 -3/4 of a mile away."
Pros: "Short flight.... no food or ENT. But quick easy and pretty on time. Thx."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I was traveling alone with an infant and since the flight wasn't full, the ticketing agent moved seats around and gave me an entire row! It was so nice to have the extra space with all my things and to get up freely when needing to change my sons diaper. There was also a changing table in the bathroom which was much needed."
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were unkind"
Pros: "I loved that the flight was direct from Chicago to Asheville. I will tend to fly more often without the stops."
Cons: "Plane had to have the bathroom serviced and we had to switch planes after boarding. On a positive note they found another plane for us very quickly and did not make us sit on the plane while it was repaired."
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no eta for replacement."
Pros: "The staff was sooo attentive and welcoming!"
Cons: "I can't complain about anything!"
Pros: "We never took flight as carrier was late from original destination, so we had to switch to American to make connections to SFO our dual destination. Then 1of our checked bags didn't make it to the new flight. Bag is still floating between United & American somewhere."
Pros: "It was simple, straight forward, and easy. Encountered no problems, and the crew was great."
Pros: "That was okay. Crew was nice. Food bad"
Cons: "All of us passengers sat in the plane for 2 hours while 17 ppl were removed and then seats resat. This massive overbooking on the part of the airlines, caused me to miss my connecting flight and my connecting train, and miss a whole day of my costly vacation. On top of this, we had to pay for changes to the connecting train (a cost we weren't expecting to incur.) This flight in the end has turned out to be one of the most costly and uncomfortable flying experiences that I've ever had. I am hoping that either Kayak, Lufthansa or the operating airlines, United, will step up and make recompense for this monetary loss. Thank you, Sarah Minnich email@example.com"
Cons: "milk products in the snack bag, gross."
Cons: "I've received my bag damaged and asked for help through the service but they didn't help me on doing nothing just said that's normal I paid 25$ for the safety of my bag but found it very damaged"
Pros: "Premium economy is a must for me from now on. I am 6'4" and the extra leg room makes all the difference in the world. My flight was at night so I had little interaction with the crew. Overall I had a very pleasant experience on united and would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Food options were limited to snack boxes. I had a layover in Denver. At the time of my arrival all of the food options in the Denver airport were closed. I would have appreciated some more substantial food offerings on the plane, as I had to go without dinner thatnight."
Pros: "- Flight arrived on-time - Well appointed terminals in ORD and SFO - Good cabin crew"
Cons: "- Economy seats are too small (I'm average sized). - United flights that are close to full never seem to have enough room for carry on luggage. This was no exception. As a result, people line up 45 minutes before the flight in order to get on first so they can claim overhead bin space. There should be a better way to manage this."
Cons: "I just liked Ima guys should try"
Pros: "It was straight forward flight"
Pros: "I barely missed my scheduled flight and the ticket agent was very accommodating. He found another flight and re-made all my arrangements. Thanks!"
Pros: "Attendant attitude"
Cons: "Noise in the cabin. Food was only two options, none vegetarian. Bathrooms locked all the time."
Pros: "Boarding started early and went very quickly. Seats were new and a leather type material , which is an improvement from old fabric seats. Nice headrests you could bend to support your head. Loved the new United app I downloaded for free which allowed me to watch movies and tv shows on my phone. We arrived at our destination 30 minutes early, which was a plus. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "glad it was direct!"
Cons: "rough landing, though :-("
Pros: "From Chicago to San Francisco was great"
Pros: "Flight times were accurate."
Cons: "As soon as we arrived to the airport, checking in was the biggest hassle. We were harassed by a guy working the ticket counter named Guilermo. He was EXTREMELY rude and continued to harass us and followed us after we checked in and we're already at the security check point. It's $25 to check a bag but if you check 2 bags their website says its $35 for both. We were charged $50 to check two bags. Even after Guilermo told both of us that they wouldn't charge us for the second bag to be checked. The guy that checked our bags was also extremely rude and clearly didn't care. Once we started boarding the flight several passengers had to check their bags at the gate because there "wasn't enough room on the plane". Not really sure how this was fair since we had just paid $50 to check two bags and were lied to about it when several people just checked their bags for free. We chose to fly with United because of the good deals they have on flights but after our experience I would MUCH rather pay more money and have a lot better customer service. We had such a horrible experience it almost ruined our first day of our week long trip. I'm. It really sure if it's obvious to the employees of United but traveling for most people is a very special occasion. This occasion happen to be a very special one to us as it was a family vacation and seeing family we haven't seen in years. The poor attitudes and rude demeanor from the United staff is all we could think about even after we reached our destination."
Pros: "The food actually was good, entertainment option were good."
Cons: "I encountered some of the worst staff ever on this flight. I was skipped over and completely ignored during more than once. I even told the guy I wanted water with ice when he asked me and then he starting socializing with others and skipped me. When I brought it to his attention he got all pissy with me. The other crew man was older and made me very uncomfortable. He was yelling at people constantly and made it very clear that he hates his job. This was the coldest flight I've even been on. Literally everyone was wrapped in their blankets and it still wasn't enough. The staff was told several times but refused to do anything. The guy in front of me had his seat row 39 middle left fully reclined back for the whole flight. Not once did anyone tell him to put it up during takeoff and meal times. He kept rocking the seat and spilled my drink in my lap."
Pros: "This is not a long flight (Grand Rapids, MI to Newark, NJ: just under 2 hours). There was a minor delay for departure of 20 minutes that Kayak and United kept us well aware of. The Grand Rapids, Ml airport is one of my new favorites -it's small, friendly, comfortable and quick and easy to navigate."
Pros: "Great flight crew. MSP airport was outstanding"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Much more comfortable."
Cons: "Lavatory still dirty."
