Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Never got on the plane due to weather restrictions in the connecting flight prior to this flight.

Pros: "Nice crew, lot of space"
Pros: "Good, in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "There must be a way for crew to intervene and help parents with screaming infants or disruptive children. The flight noise/comfort was miserable"

Cons: "No airconditioning while waiting on the shuttle bus to the plane"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly. For the price the seats where comfortable."
Pros: "The booking to a new flight was seamless."

Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "I was rerouted to another country so that I could still make it to Greece on the same day."
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Newark so I had to be rerouted to another country before going to Greece."
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "Four economy short-hauls in two days: That extra tad legroom (A321, A320, CS100) Planes are very clean Good quality snacks Great staff"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Very short flight so little to write about."
Cons: "We've got no complaints."
Pros: "The service was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The business seats that we booked were normal economy plus seats with no one in the middle seat. The whole idea of booking a business class ticket is the extra comfort that comes with the lay flat seat or at absolute minimum on smaller planes the wider more comfortable seat. Neither of those were present on this flight. Calling this a business class is a rip off."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Pros: "Loved my experience with Swiss airlines. Comfortable and pleasant flight."
Pros: "Comfortable....customer-service oriented staff. Enjoyable food, and entertainment."
Cons: "Only thing that could have been easier is to offer more self check-in options at the airport. Very courteous staff, and wait wasn't extremely long."
Cons: "Only one agent to check in economy passengers two agents for first class and 2 or 3 for special needs. There were many more economy passengers and it took a lot longer to be serviced more agents for economy would have been more equitable"
Pros: "entertainment was fine"
Pros: "I did not take this flight. I had to change my itinerary to accommodate a change in my work commitments and tried to cancel this flight but was unable."
Cons: "I am never ordering a ticket through your services again. And I will certainly advise friends and colleagues against doing so. Your customer service is execrable. This is the second time in a year that I have had to spend hours of time in an attempt to cancel a flight and have lost the full ticket cost because of all your terms and conditions and fine (=unfindable, unreadable) print. The lack of transparency regarding baggage fees is outrageous. I have had to pay hundreds of dollars in such fees after having had no such notice - and no inkling - that that would be the case. We call this a "racket" in the United States."
Pros: "Attentive crew offwring water frequentlyflight"
Cons: "Flifght was far from full and I am small.so the very tight seat configuration was not a problem."
Pros: "The flight was very good what I didnt like in that when i booked the flight it never said that my ticket wouldnt be able to add lifemiles for star alliance. That was only the reason i chose this airline. When i ask about my lifemiles the answer was that my class of ticket didnt get any lifemile. I felt cheated. You should put it somewhere visibly so the person knows before booking. If i knew it before i never chose this airline."
Pros: "Crew handled it well"
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "The Crew was wonderful."
Pros: "The food was great, the seats were thin and we had a lot of room and the staff was super!"
Cons: "Nothing, we would have stayed in this airplane longer...."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "I paid extra for seat selections and then they did not give me those seats."
Pros: "The crew on Swiss Air is very welcoming. The food was pretty good and there was frequent beverage service, so you don't get dehydrated like on other airlines."
Cons: "The seats decline fairly far back into the next seat. As a result, some of the passengers got agitated if they do not go with the flow and decline like dominoes. Both legs of the flight we had the people seated behind us kicking and shoving our seats. One gentleman was kicking my seat for a couple hours and made a scene on the outgoing flight. The stewardess addressed the gentleman and explained that I had to decline my seat because the seat in front of me was declined. My knees were jammed into the seat in front of me, so every time the gentleman kicked me, it not only hurt my back, but my knees. The couple behind us on the return flight jumped the line to get onto the flight, kept kicking our seats and then pretended they did not understand when we asked that they stop. I think the pilot should address the issue upfront so this toddler like behavior does not go on. I am not sure if it is common behavior, but not something I have experienced on an American carrier."
Pros: "Decent food (great chocolate), polite attendants and updated aircraft"
Cons: "Contrary to most experiences in Switzerland, the Swiss Air boarding process is a damn mess! Most airlines board by rows or boarding groups, but Swiss Air does none of that. As soon as first class is boarded, they open boarding to all seats, so it's like cattle boarding a train. With Swiss Air, don't wait to get in line - do it early to ensure you get carry-on storage near your seat."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Mobile app wasnt working for me"
Pros: "Kind and efficient service. Help to board and disembark Good communication. Great customer service."
Cons: "It took some time to get our gate-checked wheel chair, but I have to say, they went out of their way to help us find it."
Pros: "The chocolates shaped like soccer balls. The fantastic icecream"
Cons: "While waiting for boarding I overheard a young woman, who was traveling with several companions, screaming to her mother on the phone that she and her friends had all gotten bedbugs and were in agony! She was making plans to leave all of her bags in the driveway when she got home. I discretely let boarding staff know and was told there is nothing they can do about it. They also cannot change my flight, or my seat, in the event that I am seated next to the person with the issue. They did give me a bag in which to place my carry on before storing it overhead. But once on the plane, I realized that my checked bag would be thrown in with everyone else's. In addition, I had forgotten to preorder gluten free food. The airline had nothing gluten free to offer me on a prolonged international flight and did not even offer to produce any gluten free snack (peanuts? cheese?) to tide me over. My luggage is still sitting in my car awaiting a process. However, in the unfortunate event that it has come into contact with bedbugs it may be too late :("
Pros: "Crew was excellent, and the food was both ample and appetizing."
Cons: "The boarding process is a little chaotic for the economy cabin since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a bit of a surge when they first announce the boarding of the cabin."
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."
Pros: "The seats were actually more comfortable on this short leg than on the much longer flight back to Boston. And the Swiss chocolate was good."
Cons: "Having to pay for a second checked bag. And the refreshment (I think it was supposed to be ice cream) was awful. Also, I think it was the young pilots virgin flight. The jerky take off and bouncy initial flight was capped off with an approach to the runway for landing that was very scary, much too fast and wobbly. Thankfully the plane was pulled back up into the air, just before touch down, circled for ten minutes, and retried the landing. This time perfectly smooth and successful."
Cons: "No room and very hard to get t your seat"
Pros: "Quick flight, nice crew"
Cons: "Snack options"
Pros: "Swiss planes were clean and everything worked. Flight attendants very friendly. Food was superb. Plus, the connection in Zurich, as always, was seamless and painless. Will definitely give Swiss my preference when looking at trans Atlantic flights."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "delay of 2hours caused by disturbed person poor crew reaction no info to other passengers"
Cons: "I don't know why all airlines don't have a more orderly system for boarding by zones (like Delta). Lufthansa and Swiss both just have a mob of people blocking the boarding area and hindering people who shoud actually be boarding to get through."
Pros: "The crew was o.k."
Pros: "On time, clean plane, good service."
Cons: "Lack of seating at departure gate, costumer agent at gate was rude about standing early for boarding (see first comment). Food was not my style my wife enjoyed it."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Good service overall. Great crew."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Last two transatlantic flights have been hot. What happened to a nice cool flight and using the blanket if you are cold?"
Cons: "Lufthansa flight from Florence to Frankfurt was 45 mins late, so a large group of passengers had 30 mins to transfer from plane to bus to terminal to security to gate on other side of airport. They offered no assistance other than to say run, which we did the whole way. When we reached the gate less than 5 minutes after scheduled takeoff they said flight was closed and next flight was 18 hours later. Not one passenger successfully made the transfer. It took over 2 hours to get hotel and food vouchers, and we were forced to stay in airport Holiday Inn with now sweaty clothes and no luggage. Everyone was furious, and the entire incident could have been easily avoided in many ways, including by delaying the flight 5 mins or by providing passenger transportation at any point in the 30 minute transfer from the Lufthansa A arrival gate and the Lufthansa Z departure gate."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and the flight attendants were very helpfu"
Pros: "Safe trip. Announcer had a radio voice."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Service was scarce. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Snacks were scarce and not appropriate. The tv screens were not too user friendly and programs would skip while showings."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "My overall experience was good"
Pros: "Everything was good! I didn’t have any problems with that flight!!!"
Cons: "Requested for Hindu vegetarian meal by call and was informed we would receive on flight. Got on flight to find that Hindu vegetarian does not exist. Starved on both legs of flight. That is almost 24 hours. Plane should keep extras and customer service should give correct information."
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "This is about kayak. There's no relationship b/w kayak and lufthansa. Booked my flight through kayak going was okay but returning back was messed up. Kayak booked it in such a way that my schedule was from lagos to Frankfurt to Zurich to toronto without considering the fact that I needed a transit visa which I was not aware of as no one to advise me ahead of time . I ended up paying additional $750 CAD just to change my itinary. This was a very sad experience will never use kayak or recommend to others. My booking number is T28V67. They should have customer service agents to advise people."
Cons: "Kayak did not provide useful information regarding my flight and does not have contact centre like call center where customers can reach an agent for further assistance. When I contacted lufthansa was asked to contact kayak but no number for kayak"
Pros: "I enjoyed how smooth the whole flying went in the Lufthansa plane, also how quite was inside the plane compare to other airlines airplanes. I love the leg room in the plane. I impressed with the level of commitment to take passenger out the airport on time. It has definitely one of the smoothest and nice plane I have ever been so far."
Cons: "The pilot when landing landed too fast and the plane lost its balance for a second but other than that everything was great."
Pros: "Friendly crew, nice food and wine."
Pros: "Nice airplane, good crew, nice bite to eat."
Pros: "Amazing service."
Pros: "a normal coach experience, nothing special or bad about the flight"
Cons: "was not accustomed to walking outside or taking a bus to palne, was kind of ruff due to weather"
Cons: "It was a good flight, nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "Normal Flight, short, was coming from Munchen"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Pros: "Staff, they served a snack on this short flight"
Cons: "Flight was late, having to be bussed to the airplane and from the airplane, prefer gates."
Pros: "Everything was perfectly on time. Pilots were excellent and crew very attentive."
Cons: "Food was ok"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Too short of flight for entertainment rating, or food."
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Lufthansa did put us up in a nice hotel after we missed our connecting flights."
Cons: "While the delays associated with the flight weren't Lufthansa's fault, they could have kept us better informed as to what the plan and potential alternatives were."
Cons: "I am tall and the seats are too close together."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They offered half a sandwich and drinks which was unexpected (and delicious)for a short flight."
Cons: "There was no negative only positive, two thumbs up....."
Cons: "Overall it was great experience. Although it was not Lufthansas fault, I just wanted to request Lufthansa to request/require Ashgabat airport to treat the luggages kindly because Ashgabat airport scratched and threw my luggages."
Pros: "Lufthansa was a great experience we got to SFO check in was a breeze it took about 15 minutes, security was also a breeze."
Pros: "It's a short flight from Florence to Munich so I wasn't expecting a whole lot."
Cons: "The boarding process is the worst on this route. You get on the bus and you wait, and wait, and wait. I get it they want to make sure everyone gets on but I honestly could have walked to the plane twice in the amount of time the bus waited there. I know Florence is a small airport so maybe it has to be done this way but it sucked."
Pros: "The comfort of the seats, though it could have slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "Likes? Food, drinks, courtesy."
Cons: "Flight had no movies/in-flight service. Departed an hour late."
Pros: "Very positive and responsive crew! A fresh cup of coffee I received when I requested one was delicious. And,one of the crew members made me a cup of tea before they had started serving it."
Pros: "The flight was quick, getting on was no problem. The crew were friendly, I was comfortable in the seats on the short trip, but I think more than two hours would have been trouble (I'm tall). The food sufficed for a quick trip. I only say Good because the food was good, not outstanding. Entertainment was pretty much magazines."
Cons: "Everything was really just as I expected it to be, nothing too flashy or exciting."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and efficient, as expected. The connection was thankfully in the same terminal as the incoming flight. Luckily the passport control area was pretty quiet or we never would have made it in time. I had a backpack only so could go fast."
Cons: "Got late into Munich and ended up with a tarmac spot instead of a gate. Got in late on the connecting flight and literally had to run through the terminal to get to the gate, Then after all of the stress we got on the plane from another bus. That's the bad thing about connecting through German hubs on Liftansa: they make very tight connections and you don't know if they will wait at the second flight to not. I have missed by minutes in the past in similar situations. And no other flight to Dublin from Munich until hours later"
Pros: "The service was good"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats had way too little leg room"
Pros: "Flight was quick."
Cons: "I wish ALL airlines would simply board by rows starting from the rear, boarding speeds would be significantly sped up. Process as it stands is chaotic and wastes a lot of time unnecessarily."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"

Pros: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "Just the cabin crew being nice"
Cons: "Punctuality KLM is always late"
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."

Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."

Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
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."
Cons: "There was a delay bc of miscommunication with passengers. We sat in the plane for an hour before we took off. It was annoying"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Boarding was on time and ran smoothly. In flight crew was friendly and attentive."

Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The foot room could be better for lying on you side."
Pros: "Attentive crew. Current movies available. Economy seats were fine."
Cons: "In general, airline food stinks. In Economy, UA is no exception. Bring your own sandwiches or salads. You'd think they could do better on long-haul flights."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "So many regrets for flying this dumpster fire."
Pros: "Everything was really smooth sailing."
Cons: "Everything was great! The Charleston airport is small yet very nice inside"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for 2 hours at the gate to find out that the dispatcher did not have paperwork for the flight and hence we could not leave yet. We were not told of all of the issues and were kept sitting on the plane idle for 2 hours before we had to deplane and wait even more."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Kayak should be ashamed to think that such a short international connection through ord would work. Shame shame shame. Never booking with you again."
Pros: "Economy plus seating in an exit row was maybe the best airline seating I've had outside of first-class. The on board entertainment was better than average."
Cons: "The flight crew, save the one male attendant couldn't possibly seem and more disconnected and uninterested in passenger comfort or safety. The eldest attendant was simply rude and seemed annoyed at having to do her job. The other young woman couldn't seem to keep the cart from bashing into seatbacks or herself in the aisle and the flight was NOT rough."
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: "All the flight crew was incredibly attentive, particularly with those with special needs. From helping them to use the facilities to getting them little extras. It was a nice thing to see - especially in a such long (14+ hrs) flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system and service carts were quite outdated. There were no visible place to charge my phone. It takes away from the strong people service."
Cons: "The plan had to be maintained with no option for getting to my final destination on time."
Cons: "The return back to the state"
Pros: "First flight landed late, but second flight waited for me and other passengers. Bag didn't show up until following late due to a TSA inspection. United handled it VERY professionally."
Cons: "Last row"
Cons: "1) a 5-hour flight to Honolulu was delayed for 6 hours due to mechanical problems, twice! First plane had issues and we had to change to another plane, found issues again before being taxied. Poor maintenance United! Are your planes even safe? 2) United first class is terrible! It isn’t even near first class standard with very tight seats and rude flight attendants. Absolutely zero service! No more United!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Entertainment was on personal device. Additional software was needed to watch movie."
Cons: "I've never had a problem bringing two backpacks on a plane but United makes sure they charge you for that second bag even though there was plenty of overhead space. I also went to the kiosk and it printed my bag check receipt but not my boarding pass and I had to run back from security to get it when I realized. Crew was nice and flight was smooth but everything before that point I could have lived without."
Pros: "Availability of flights"
Cons: "I chose the flight only because of time best for me. I was disappointed with no carry on luggage even if i pay. Lame. Even spirit lets you carry on for a fee."
Pros: "How can you overbook a flight?! Thank god someone gave up their seat for me or I would have missed my connecting flight in Chicago. I paid $600 and was told because I'm basic economy I wasn't guarenteed a seat. Terrible!! And then I couldn't use my backpack (small school sized) as my personal bag and had to pay the $25 to check it! Come on United."
Pros: "I enjoyed the turkey and cheese pretzel sandwich, but I found myself unable to get comfortable in my seat. I have tailbone issues and I was in pain the entire time being that the seat was so cramped and hard"

Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 5:30 did not depart until around 7:20!!! Had to sit on plane for almost 2 hrs!! We were NOT OFFERED anything to drink Not even water!! Jet Blue would NEVER be neglectful, they are very service oriented. Plane was full & 2 babies on board one was fussy crying at times. It was s nightmare!! I was exhausted from traveling to NYC & Philly! & the delay & lack of service was AWFUL!! Could not watch TV, bc It either connects to phone, I could not connect it or I think you had to pay! Unheard of!!!I love to watch CNN, MSNBC & Fox it makes the time fly!! Hopefully will Never have to fly United Again"
Pros: "Boa 're ding good"
Cons: "Lights on in plane all time american keeps lights dim so people rest"
Pros: "The airline seated an elderly physically handicapped man on the aisle, blocking me & my daughter from standing or exiting the row to use the restroom for the 6-hour flight."
Cons: "No food or drinks during the flight. The handicapped passenger should have been seated next to his family member, rather than by himself. He needed help for everything!"
Pros: "Everything was pleasant."

Cons: "Polaris Biz servie was worse than old biz class service. Only six salmon dinners aboard! Cabin crew needed to asked for many standard items. After dinner service, they were invisible. Brkfst was rushed in last hour before touch down. This was a real disappointment after an excellent flight from LAX to MEL! We can fly AA for such service at a lower price!"
Pros: "The crew were nice and even if they were stressed didn't show it one bit."
Cons: "With a flight based out of Denver, I'd have expected you to be a LITTLE more prepared for the inclement weather, and not be delayed over 12 hours with thousands of other people."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed /"
Pros: "nicest flight attendants and very friendly, thoughtful service. thanks for a great flight!"
Pros: "All was normal. So fine."
Cons: "The delay. Sick passenger and icy wings. None the fault of United"
Cons: "We had to sit and wait for a while because nobody picked up the captain and co-pilot at their hotel. There was no AC in Raleigh while we were waiting, so the plane got pretty hot. The captain said "they should've known this plane has no AC and hooked up the external power, and I apologize". It wasn't great."
Pros: "The timing."
Cons: "The landing was a little rough."
Pros: "Ease of check in with a stream line flow"

Pros: "The demeanor of the crew was warm and welcoming throughout the trip."
Cons: "The bathrooms were not very clean and hour into the trip"
