This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Services are the best"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "The “mini-refrigerator” for beverage storage at the business class seat."
Cons: "The portion of the Arabic language expression on the live flight mapping software should have been minimized."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Lots of noisy babies / young children"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant."
Cons: "dont falsely claim that you have wifi if you cannot connect to satellite. The ground staffs needs training on behavior and how to treat infants."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Entertainment variety Frequent drinks offered onboard"
Cons: "Insufficient amount of in-flight food portion"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "There was a person name Manzoor at Lahore airport working with Qatar Airways ticketing he was asking me to pay him $50 to help me get boarding pass. i will also contact Qatar Airways about this incident if this issue is not going to forward to the airline please let me know."
Pros: "From the exceptional lounges to the cleanliness of the plane, the food options in business class and the flight attendants , Qatar Airways was excellent"

Cons: "It was mostly a good experience."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Cons: "Old plane treating the Africans like poor people of no value .. All other Qatar flights have newer aircrafts"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."
Cons: "- The Flight was canceled to fly directly from DOH to PHL.... Our party was put on a transfer at ORD...added additional 8 hours of layover... flight itself wasn't terrible... but the bathroom situation could be hectic..."
Cons: "Not much of space in aircraft"

Took forever for checked bags to get to baggage claims

We flew First Class to LA from Denver on the Delta-branded contract airline - Sky West. On the way back, we flew First Class on a Delta Airlines owned jet, and the experience was so much better. The flights should have been comparable; but unfortunately cost-cutting by Sky West was evident.

Pros: "Peaceful in cabin"
Cons: "Blanket ,"
Cons: "Connection flight was only 30 min, plus the 1st flight was delayed... Causing I missed the 2 nd flight"

Pros: "That I arrived safe."
Cons: "My seat didnt recline my back was in a lot of pain so was my neck. After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."
Pros: "New plane with great entertainment arrived 30 mins early"

Cons: "Seats are too tight and too expensive to upgrade."
Pros: "The plane was an older model but staff allowed main cabin to use 1sr class bathroom."

Cons: "We need more food options and a little bit more legroom."
Pros: "seating, food, service"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight ran on time."

Pros: "No waits, front desk personnel were helpful about baggage accommodations. Clear communications."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Gate crew in DEN provided free refreshments at the gate during a 2+ hour flight delay."
Cons: "The aircraft used for this flight comes from LGA as part of an out-and-back. Delays can be expected if there is an earlier departure delay in NYC. On 6/30, this aircraft was 2+ hours late while all other airlines (United, Southwest and Frontier) were all on-time."
Pros: "Great overall flight, as expected in Delta’s first class."

Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"
Pros: "Great pilot.."
Cons: "Jam packed too small and the lady flight attendant was to bossy and not that welcoming, she was more interested in being more of a drill sergeant than the comfort of the passengers"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Cons: "They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that."
Pros: "Mu seat!"
Cons: "My baggage took for to long to arrive"
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."
Cons: "The flight is delayed 3.5 hours."
Pros: "Who could ask for more?"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."
Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."
Pros: "Brand new plane"
Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned well from the previous flight and looked dirty from being overlooked for so long. There was garbage in my seat back pocket and the overhead areas all looked dirty as if they were never cleaned at all."
Pros: "Friendly staff. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight cancelled at 8:30 p.m. the night before when we were going to bed at the airport. Ability to get rebooked a nightmare."
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."

I'm not really sure what the difference is between Economy and Premium Economy on these long-haul flights, especially when the plan isn't very full and people in Economy can lie down across an entire row. The seats in Premium Economy are a bit bigger, but you can't recline or lie down and I'm pretty sure we get the same food options as regular economy. You get a little goodie bag that you don't really need. Also, there is really no point upgrading to business class on the short flights with Lufthansa. The seat size is the same as the rest of the plane. So, you're paying $50 or so for a pretty small snack/meal and a curtain between you.

Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Spacious seat, easy charging."
Cons: "Boarding"
Cons: "He option to split groups of travellers."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "My seat was next to bathrooms when everyone start using it start smelling too much very uncomfortable sitting there. Food chicken was very salted, they run out of drinks 10 hours flight dinner served at begging no snacks or anything till 2 hours before landing"
Cons: "At least air fresheners in bathrooms or something better so passengers can sit comfortably"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Pros: "very good on-board service , good LH crew while checking in i got an upgrade to premium economy very good food ....quite surprised easy check-in , no problem with suitcase that was a bit overweight"
Cons: "arriving in toronto , arrival gate at pearson was blocked by another plane ...so despite being a few minutes early , arrival at the terminal was finally 20min later than scheduled"
Pros: "Crew and flight were fine"
Cons: "Cramped in economy"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Everything worked very well."
Pros: "Flying premier economy. Flight was on time...no crying babies. Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Long lines to get through boarding"
Cons: "Due to the reason that the flight was overbookef LH asked us to drop off our hand luggages as well, however both were approved for the cabine. For this reason I had to buy padlocks. The problem was, that even if we were asked for favor we had to wait for baggage drop off at boarding for one hour."
Pros: "We had a very short connection as a result of a long delay in our flight from Athens to Munich. Lufthansa held the gate open and helped us get on board tom our flight to Chicago. The plane was big, roomy and the seats were comfortable. There were adequate number of toilets so people didn't have to stand in long lines. The crew was very friendly in an efficient way, not like in Asian airlines where the passenger gets coddled. I particularly appreciated the serving of water/juices every so often to stay hydrated."
Cons: "They could have made the transfer easier by having a trolley to move us instead of having us run through the airport. I am 70 and have had both knees replaced. While I can walk just fine, running was very difficult."
Cons: "They skipped me when passing out the food. They probably thought that I was sleeping, but they didn’t stop to ask."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Having to wait 3 hours to catch the next plane. Also Frankfurt airport takes too long to get from one place to another- it’s a maze and there are too many slow checkpoints for connecting flights."
Pros: "Lufthansa airlines never fails to provide excellent service."
Pros: "Great cabin crew. Acceptable food and beverage es"
Cons: "Long delays and missed connections. Shoving more people than possible in airport bus. Disfunctional audio jack on passenger entertainment panel (same as last year (poor Maintanence)"
Pros: "Our family was able to all sit together, even though we were not able to select our seats."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats when booking the flight, but they put us all t"
Pros: "Held the plane for late arriving transfers. Good food."
Cons: "Tiny space for 8 hour flight. Men not sharing arm rests or leg room. Really really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew is very professional"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly small, flights are overcrowded and rarely on time."
Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "Not enough space between the seats and the seats are very tough. So hard you can’t get comfortable"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Cancelled"
Pros: "Okay- typical short flight--no problems. No entertainment available to rate above."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was good."
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."
Pros: "Safety and ease of flying- cleanliness too"
Cons: "No food at all! The system for getting food was unclear."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Operated by Lufthansa. Attentive flight attendant. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Took me to great location"
Cons: "Just about the whole trip. Way to expensive! Food was bad for the money. Delta was great to Paris last year. Using kayak was to expensive! Next time will go airline. To Paris a lot cheaper. This airline has fees to the max!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lufthansa Flight from Cape Town to Munich canceled due to mechanical problems. Flight rebooked with great difficulty and confusion by Lufthansa. Condor and United picked up the pieces and got us home."
Cons: "We didn't like the total confusion and errors made by Lufthansa staff during the rebooking process after the flight cancellation."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "excellent seats, service, food, entertainment."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable; departure and arrival were timely."
Cons: "After priority passengers boarded the aircraft, boarding for everyone else was a free for all. It would be more orderly if there were clear lines and groupings of rows beginning at the rear were called. Movie selection was not great. Many choices were old. Few were current."
Pros: "Loved the staff, very nice! The food options were good & I appreciated the veggie options. Desert could be optional since I never eat it. Oh & the beverage cart with all the options is the absolute BEST."
Cons: "No noise barriers. I realize people will bring babies on flights, but after 11 straight hours (seriously, 11!) of screaming babies, the whole plane was tired & on edge."
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: "Lots of great choices in movies and music; good food; great service"
Cons: "Seating to small and tight I am only 5'11 175 lbs"
Pros: "WOW. SO much food and services. Lots!! Best flight ever."
Cons: "Some staff sound a little rude sometimes. And stressed."
Pros: "Nothing about vayama."

Flight was supposed to be 3 hrs 40 min total with connection. As I left Hartford I got a notice saying my connection is 3 and 1/2 hrs delayed!!! Not happy when I’m eager to get home!!

I didn’t eat any of the snacks nor drink any of the beverages available on the flight. I tend to fall asleep on the plane, which is what happened. It has been a while since I have flown United, I appreciated the spacious seating, comfortable seats and improved planes. Thanks for making the flight easy and enjoyable, it seems like the company has been working on making general improvements to their flights and it’s paying off.

Cons: "The flight was delayed because the inbound aircraft arrived late, but United didn't notify me until I was already at the airport. They would have known about the delay for hours already by that point, so I could have rebooked on a different flight. Instead I had to spend the night by the airport in Hartford or risk missing my connection and being stranded in Chicago."
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "What happened to complimentary snacks?!"
Pros: "I would love to take off and make it to my destination next time instead of sit in the airport for 8 hours strung along by the employees saying the plane will be fixed."
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "Crew was fantastic on United!"
Cons: "The seat in business class was small."
Pros: "Crew was phenomenal!!!! So attentive and professional. Great customer service"
Cons: "Old flight"
Cons: "Check in was with a new trainee and she was not sure how to put in our TSA - we got sent around to other people quite a bit. Plane was late and we almost did not make our connection in Dulles"
Pros: "getting to my destination"
Cons: "How does a 700 mi flight take 14hrs to accomplish. Fly United and find out."
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: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."
Pros: "On rime"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Crowded planes, problems with efforts to upgrade, no room in the seat"
Pros: "Excellent trip. Took basic economy. Only like needed to pack for weekend. Got the job done."
Cons: "No frills. It wasn't needed but gotta think of something to put here."
Pros: "It was ok"
Pros: "The trip home went without any delays and was quite pleasant. Everything worked out well and I have high praise for the service"
Cons: "Everything was fine. Nothing to complain."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours.... missed my next flight, too dc, then rerouted to Philadelphia,and transferred to another airline, got to Dayton at 5 pm. I haven't had a vacation in four years, this was not the way I wanted to start. This was a trip from hell."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Delays due to staffing issues led to missed connection and 7 hour wait for next available flight."
Cons: "No complementary food is provided. Just some mini snacks."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was stuck between two very large men on a flight where there was apparently no air conditioning. I could barely breathe for how hot it was."
Pros: "I could not find anyplace on the United reservation to enter my TSA Pre check number. As a result, even thought I am 80, I had to wait in line and disrobe at Hartford CT airport."
Cons: "It would be helpful if Kayak or airlines could highlight or include the TSA Pre number automatically on check in."
Pros: "Boarding passes on my phone"
Cons: "The seats on the first plane were hard as a rock"
Pros: "The roominess of the sets on this plane were excellent and the stewardesses were very friendly and accommodating ."
Pros: "Early boarding for families"
Cons: "Ridiculously cramped bathrooms"
Pros: "All of our flights left on time & arrived early. We had wonderful flight attendants as well."
Cons: "Arriving in Chicago we had to wait to dock the plane and were not able to get up and use the restroom."
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Poor service, not pleasant attitude from flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and both service desk and over the phone customer service took over an hour so I paid out of pocket to rebook with another airline."
Pros: "I liked the fact another passenger was willing to switch seats so my husband and I could sit together."
Cons: "I didn't like the attitude received from the person at the desk at the gate. My husband and I looked at our tickets and were surprised to see the seat assignments I had chosen when I purchased the tickets were not there and instead the boarding pass said "see agent". She then assigned us seating in separate rows and handed us new boarding passes. No explanation. We looked at them and handed them right back and said no thank you, we had purchased tickets together. She said, "this flight has been oversold" and motioned for the next passenger to step up. This really upset my husband who told her, "Wait, we are not finished discussing this!" He went on to explain to her we purchased our tickets together with seat assignments - Together. She then said if we didn't reclaim them when checking in, 24 hours prior, the seats then became available again. What kind of logic is this?! Ugh! If I wanted to be treated like cattle I would have stuck with Southwest! We. It's back to Southwest for us. At least they are up front with their rules."
Pros: "The weather in CT was inclement but the pilot made up time getting to DC and the connection to Seattle arrived ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "Plane was small ... Wifi not available on one flight"
Pros: "It was overall a wonderful flight"
Pros: "The point where I got off the plane forever"
Cons: "Literally every thing else"
Pros: "The United app was awesome so I could watch movies on my phone during the flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed and caused me to miss my next flight which forced me to have to stay over night in a hotel and take a new flight the next morning. I had to pay for all the extra costs of the hotel, taxis and food. It was very frustrating that they didn't hold the plane just a few minutes since there were a lot of passengers ( including myself) who ran to the gate."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No leg room even for a short person like me!"
Pros: "Fight on time. Minimal turbulence. Effecient flight sttendants"
Cons: "Pesky kid sitting next to me who cried, whined & spilled his orange juice on me!!"
Pros: "sufficient space for luggage overhead"
Cons: "too much chatter among crew, especially during boarding and disembarking rest rooms too small - claustrophobic additional, and roomier rest rooms could help wish announcements could be delivered more slowly, better enunciated, and less slurred; often cannot be understood; one often has to guess the meaning more smiles and friendlier tones and attitude could help having window seat can be very inconvenient when leaving one's seat"
Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Cons: "Was told no flights for two days after flight was cancelled. Then was told we needed to switch airports via taxi on our own. Then switched to Delta airlines where I had to pay another $60 to check my bags."
Cons: "Flight was delayed therefore missed my connection"
Pros: "They checked my carry on at the gate in Hartford and said it would go through to me final destination and it wasn't in Cincinnati when I arrived. In fact that was yesterday and I still don't have my luggage."
Pros: "I ended up going through Chicago. My return flight was delayed and I missed the connecting flight and had to stay in a hotel overnight. I am still waiting for the next flight home."
Pros: "Everything went excellent for a snowey day! Flight was good!!!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Stayed on hold for over 2 hours to rebook."
Pros: "Quick boarding, arrived on time, not much to complain about"
Cons: "Not much in the way of leg room, only one drink and no peanuts/pretzels."
Pros: "flight was delayed, interchange was cancelled, and attendants on first flight were just plain mean!"
