Airline reviews

Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."

Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."
Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."

Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."

Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"

Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"

Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."

Pros: "crew found me an outlet for laptop"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The area in the back of the plane by my seat smelled like dirty feet."

Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"

Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."

Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"

Pros: "How professional everyone was"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"

Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."

Pros: "Delta is always great to fly on, but this was not the best.."
Cons: "We had delays EVERYWHERE. What is usually a 40 minute flight from Birmingham to Atlanta took an hour & 25 minutes. Once I landed, I had to connect allll the way on the other side of the airport. Once in air, things were fine, just hot. However, due to weather, we had to fly for an additional 45 minutes in the sky. The crew was as nice as they could be in that situation just overall a frustrating."

Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."

Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."

Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."

Pros: "Great. Love first class whenever price allows."

Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"

Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."

Pros: "See above..."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"

Pros: "Food good, wine OK"
Cons: "Discomfort bad"

Pros: "really great service, arrived early, as good as it gets."

Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."

Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."

Pros: "The flight left anfd arrived on time"
Cons: "We were in "prefered". still the seats were very tight with little leg room. I am a 150 lb guy and cannot imaginer the discomfort of a large person."

Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."

Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."

Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."

Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and available."

Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."

Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."
Cons: "Nothing at all."

Cons: "Boarding was a mess"

Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"

Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."

Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."

Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."

Cons: "Delayed."

Pros: "It was a pretty comfortable flight, with lots of options for entertainment. The food they serve was fairly good and the whole crew was very helpful and kind."

Pros: "Drinks were passed out twice while everyone was waiting due to flight delay. There was one flight attendant that was awesome. I had asked for coffee due to migraine. I was stuck in the last row, back of the plane & had seen other people with coffee. The flight attendant told me no, I would have to wait for 3 more hours for coffee at breakfast. A smiling face showed up within minutes & asked if I wanted coffee. She told me that when she hears someone else say "no" that she thinks it should always be "yes". She was the African American flight attendant (wish I would have got her name). She brought me coffee, offered tylenol & checked in on me again later."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. Most of the service was fair at best, crew, no smiles, looked irritable. Our flight had been delayed about 4-5 hrs so passengers & staff grumpy. Poor selections on the movies. No charging stations in the seat. This plane was very noisy so I was really glad to have noise cancelling headphones. Very expensive to select seats as it was bought through a non-Delta site to get the desired connections."

Pros: "Boarded and left on time"
Cons: "Food was awful. It was so hot I was fanning myself. I had a 11 hour flight and than a 10 hour flight after both British airways, and the same exact food. So I just went hungry. I smelled something amazing so thought I would get a good hot meal as my last meal since I had not had anything in 9hours, but nope, just got a measly cold sandwich. I won’t book British airlines again for international travel, I’ll stick to emirates."

Cons: "Hardly saw a steward in business class the whole flight. Must be part of BA’s cost saving initiatives, but means you don’t get food on time, offered drinks or even a menu"

Cons: "Distance between seats on the low side i.e. not much leg room. TV screen again on the small size in comparison with other airlines. Ear phones poor build quality and sound. Plastic cutlery. Small meal trays. No hand wipes with meals. In comparison with other airlines BA is only an average carrier."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Better food choices."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Pros: "The big snow storm cause a 6 hours delay from JFK to MAD, which made me missed my connection flight. Iberia didn't honor its responsibility to find me a connection flight and had no idea where my luggage was. I ended up paying for a train ticket with Renfe from MAD to VLC."
Cons: "It is insane that Iberia didn't help me at all. Iberia should honor its responsibility to ensure the customer have a connection flight when there was a delay due to weather. They were not well trained to locate my luggage, and help me finding an alternative solution, i.e. Renfe train to MAD to VLC."

Cons: "The people handling the boarding were rude and inefficient. Not a way to staty an 11 hour flight."

Pros: "Crew fantastic. Seats very cramped so hard when travelling alone with people crammed next to you. I am very short and still found seat cramped. Blankets skimpy. Heathrow to San Fran. Johannesburg to Heathrow was more comfortable."
Cons: "Most things I give a high rate on BA but travelling economy these days is very cramped especially as I did two long international legs with short four hour break between."

Cons: "I missed my flight,as there were 3 traffic accident on the way to Airport,I was late by 10 Minutes,Will never travel by Air India-a useless airline"

Cons: "Lost my luggage"

Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"

Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."

Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Cons: "price"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No free snack or drink, noisy plane...couldn't hear stewards, and VERY uncomfortable seats...."

Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Comfortable seat, great food and service. Very quiet and smooth ride on the upper deck of an A380."
Cons: "Worst issue was the noisy baby at the front of the cabin - no airline seems to have a good solution to this problem!"

Pros: "Quick boarding, good crew."
Cons: "Greasy food."

Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"

Pros: "Food, drinks, pillow, blanket, movie options."

Pros: "I loved the new modern plane. It was a bit more comfortable and conveniently designed. Less like a cattle truck and more like a luxury bus."

Pros: "There was no flight"
Cons: "The flight did not take off. What little information we were goven was inaccurate. We called and were rebooked on another flight without being told it was overbooked and our tickets were standby . Dozens of other passengers had the same experience"

Pros: "Crew great, Food great!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Lost luggage. Can proceed. Must by new tickets from SaS and may miss boat"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight has now been cancelled twice. Communication by BA has been lacking. Flight now scheduled to leave 48 hours later than scheduled.See above"

Cons: "Missed flight due to incompetence"

Pros: "Excellent flight. Staff very helpful and professional."

Pros: "Lots of delays due to technical problems with the plan. Had to be moved onto another plane. More than 3 hour delay."

Pros: "Hostess was very nice, helpful and friendly. entertainment was ok and pilot was very informative on delays and info. I think the comic relief video is a keeper. People tend to watch just to see the characters and reactions"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, really squashed, no space for 2 arms on the arm rests and leg room is rubbish. Food is wasn't bad.. could do with more on the trays, seems there have been some budget cuts. Continental breakfast option would be really nice."

Cons: "The was delayed. Seat are not too comfortable for long trips"

Pros: "The meals were reasonably nice and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were old and not clear and not easy to use. The crew was not efficient, not very friendly and not very accommodating. They offered minimal service, contrary to another crew on the A380 flight with BA going from LHR to JNB. Between flights, I guess I saw the better and the worse of BA."

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, the A380 is so much quieter than the usual 747 and really clean. We arrived on time."
Cons: "As a silver Avios member I've gotten used to the cabin crew calling me on my name when they come and talk to me. This time they spoke as little as possible and it was all incognito. They seemed to be more interested in various Facebook updates than working business class."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Check in counter make difficult: my cary on luggage is standard, they should know it."

Pros: "No refreshments were offered."

Pros: "Good food, good service, everything on time."

Cons: "I paid for an exit seat and didn't get one and then I had the only seat with no entertainment for 11 hours overnight and no Joyce to move"

Pros: "Just so comfortable and friendly. I'll fly them again next time!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "We boarded almost 1hr early, took off on time and landed just before scheduled."

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Great Crew, smooth operation. Efficient service."

Cons: "Boarded flight only to be unboarded at midnight: got to hotel 4am. Long delay in check in/appallingly disorganized. No communication from BA as to problem or when flight would go. Next day checked out of hotel and taken back to airport only to find flight not going as problem not fixed. Passengers taken back to hotel and checked in again! All this time, no official communication from BA. No attempt to reroute elderly passengers or those with small children. Very unimpressed"

Cons: "They did not do much to help accommodate us sitting together on the long flight. Poor food. Poor service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"

Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."

Cons: "I HAVE FLOWN OFTEN ON OTHER AIRLINES & IT WAS THE FIRST TIME TO FIND OUT THAT BRITISH AIRWAYS ONLY ALLOWED ONE FREE CHECKED BAG AND I HAD TO PAY $200 WHEN I ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT, $100 FOR THE 2ND BAG & $100 BECAUSE IT EXCEEDED 51 LBS"

Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."

Pros: "nothing the plane got delayed four times with no warning and then got cancelled when we all got lined up at the gate for the plane (we stood in line for 15 MINUTES BEFORE ANYONE TOLD US SHIT)"
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane got cancelled after hours of sitting in the airport, I didn't like the lack of communication between British airways staff and (would be) passengers, I didn't like that it would've taken me literally three hours to speak to a representative, and I am going to get a refund. I ended up taking an 80 pound train to London that took two and a half hours, and I expect the airway to pay for that too. This was bullshit and I hate this shirt air line."

Pros: "All round professionalism. Entertainment good, and versatile, music as an option a sound idea was able to listen to one of my favorite type of music jazz, for the entire flight."

Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."

"Flight was on time. Crew courteous and knowledgeable. Good flight"

"My flight was cancelled and I wasn’t even notified!!! Horrible service!"

Pros: "The price of the flight was competitive which is why we went with American. The aircraft was clean and crew aboard the aircraft were by by courteous and professional."
Cons: "American Airlines changed our flight times drastically which caused us to have to rearrange our travel plans. The boarding process at St Croix was terribly unorganized and inefficient. The airplane was hot and stuffy with little airflow. They don’t offer any beverages to customers other than first class passengers citing COVID issues. There is no risk if COVID spread through giving each passenger a soda. It is incredibly unfair that first class passengers are served both alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages in cups but other passengers are not."

Pros: "Hard product in first was good for domestic first"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t terribly friendly. Nothing to drink until 30+ minutes into flight. Allowed crash pax to use first class lav. I pay more so I don’t have to share with so many ppl. Lav was gross 1.5 hrs I to flight."

Pros: "Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room."

Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."

Pros: "Punctuality, professionalism, and overall excellent customer service. Every personal i spoke with was very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "There are too many good flight times with extensive layovers not enough non stop flights at reasonable times"

Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."

Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."

Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"

Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."

Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"

Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"

Cons: "Half of the screens were down. No Gluten free options."

Cons: "The flight was delayed initially because of plane late arrival then rerouting and then delayed and cancelled. Spent the night on the floor with no offers for food or beverages or at least offering vouchers for delays not related to weather. Tried to lie and say it was weather related."

Pros: "M"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"

Cons: "Better WiFi and shows"

Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."

Pros: "Hm...can’t really think of anything remarkably good about this flight."
Cons: "The FA making announcements was extremely rude and condescending. Other FA’s were listless and unhelpful, even discourteous to elderly passengers who needed assistance boarding. The seat was uncomfortable, no legroom, the guy ahead of me reclined before we even took off and no one made him put it up"

Pros: "Service from crew was fine"
Cons: "No delay! Got notification that our flight was one half hour earlier. Then boarded aircraft, and it had electrical problems. Delayed. We had to get off. Then board another aircraft."

Pros: "Got bumped up to main cabin extra for free whiskey"
Cons: "2 hour delay on first flight making me miss my second flight and instead of arriving home at 3 pm I won’t be home till about 10 pm .... definitely reconsidering booking American Airlines again...."

Pros: "We boarded early because of the security check, but that worked out fine. The food was good and the flight attendants were attentive."
Cons: "Spending 10 hours on a flight, but you can't do anything about that."

Cons: "Business class crew was extremely rude and unfriendly."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."

Pros: "This leg of our trip was much better than our flight out to Venice on British airways. Comfy seats, good entertainment and clean plane."

Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"

Pros: "Entertainment, seating room"

Pros: "Crew was nice and the staff at LAX was cool. Everything else was ok to good."
Cons: "My checked baggage got left behind at LAX. I got it the next day."

Cons: "This was the worst flight experience of my life I will never flyAmerican again"

Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."

Cons: "Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience."

Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"

Pros: "This was the best in flight crew I’ve experienced in economy class. They were efficient, friendly & humorous! Keep up the great work! They made flying in not so comfortable seats bearable."

Pros: "Crew On time Boarding"
Cons: "Seat space very tight and I’m not a very big person Seat ahead of me fully reclined left me even less space Seats are very uncomfortable Expected more for the cost of over $200 one way"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"

Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"

Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."

Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super old planes, couldn't control a/c or had a tv."

Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"

Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."

Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."

Cons: "Plane was delayed due to a mechanical in Charlotte (Old USAir Airbus) then ground stop due to weather after it finally got to Baltimore. Loaded us up and then deplaned us. They brought out water and sodas while we waited. Then reboarded and got into Charlotte about three hours late. Lots of very unhappy people. They passed out 800 numbers to rebook. A lot of people missed connections."

Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."

Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"

Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything that I liked. Oh wait! You have diet Dr Pepper which I think is fantastic."
Cons: "The plane was kind of old and run down. Everyone, the passengers included which I realize you have no control over, just seemed to be in an awful mood and very unhelpful. Same, and about the gate attendants, in that we attempted to get seats together and he didn't care at all what was going on. I haven't flown American for a very long time, and I don't think I want to again for a very long time."

Pros: "Our flight had a veteran who had received the Medal of Honor and the pilot and attendants took a moment to recognize him and it was sooo special and meaningful for American Airlines to take the time to thank this awesome individual!!! Thank you!!"

Pros: "Overall flight was satisfactory experience."
Cons: "Movie selection for entertainment"

Cons: "Service was surprisingly lacking for first class. No refreshments offered prior to takeoff. Dinner was mediocre, what you would get in economy. Beverage served was a glass of wine and small bottle of water and that was it for the entire flight. On an earlier flight in economy, there were two times we were served refreshments. No one bothered to collect my empty water bottle the entire flight. And this is first class ??"

Pros: "Everything about the 787. Very comfortable and pleasant"
Cons: "Again, United is not enforcing its own COVID restrictions. That’s gotta stop"

Pros: "Nice attentive crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "There was no lunch"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the seats were uncomfortable and the air cabin was very cold."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, cancelled then on again. Communication regarding the flight changes were very confusing and had guest running though the airport not knowing what to do. My suitcase was busted and destroyed.There were not enough blankets for everyone in the cold plane. Horrible experience."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment was free so keep me busy."
Cons: "Flight was good had no complaints."

Pros: "The crew was great. The seats, though cramped, were nice to have electronic device holders instead of built in screens."
Cons: "The flight was 9 hours and they didn't provide any meals. That's ridiculous. When I fly with any other airline for over 7 hours I've always gotten 1 meal, if not 2. The food for purchase however, was very good. But they should not expect you to pay."

Pros: "I like that United flys 777 to Hawaii. I specifically look for the larger AC when I am booking my trip. Secondly the Flight crew was efficient and very helpful as always"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "One crew is rude while I was ordering food while she is delivering the beverage after the order time. She simply told me they don't have what I want to order and leave. After 5 mins, I pushed the service button and nobody responded. After half hour, I ordered the food from another crew passed by. After I landed, they suppose to return my stroller set at the airplane gate. But they said it is not there, ask us to wait at the airport gate. We walked outside and they broadcasted again, I didn't hear very clearly but followed most parents to walk out. We wait at the baggage claim for almost 1 hour and finally, the baggage crew came back to the gate and found our stroller."

Pros: "The flight crew was very welcoming and positive. They were attentive and ensures that every one had headsets, blanckets etc for the 8.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Lacking food healthy food options. No salads or light bites available. The warm food that they did have was terrible and very salty. I wish their in-flight entertainment was not on our own devices because updates to the app are required which you wouldnt know unless you were on the plane and connected to their wifi."

Cons: "Spotty Wi-Fi. Only on an American flight"

Pros: "Tgis flight was actually from Dulles to Denver. It was able to depart on time despite an inch of snow falling a few hours prior with a temperature around 20°F."

Cons: "Plane sat on runway & subsequently returned to gate due to mechanical issue resulting in 2.5 hour departure delay. Boarding was chaotic - flight attendant said procedure not consistent with UA practices. Food only available is purchased from UA, and what food was available ran out (I never did get fed on the 11+ hour flight). Cabin very cold."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, but was not notified of delay. Also, our gate was changed three times."

Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Everything else and being really late"

Pros: "quick overall flight"
Cons: "No food options other than purchased snacks on an 8-9 hour flight"

Pros: "Crew very efficient and nice"
Cons: "Being it’s a flight from Japan a more Japanese meal would’ve been better"

Pros: "We had arrived a little ahead of schedule"
Cons: "For an almost 6 hour flight, they chose a very small plane. Probably because they didn't sell enough seats on the flight so they downsized. Anyway, lots of people who boarded towards the end weren't able to store any carryon luggage. And as I listened to the crew talk to them, they weren't very nice about it. Sounded as if they were saying it's the passengers fault. We are allowed 1 carryon and 1 personal bag. For any flight that is longer than 3 hours, I believe the airlines should at least allow passengers to have 1 free check in. Then maybe we wouldn't be trying to carry everything on with us. Our flight to Hawaii wasn't very comfortable either. We had purchased economy plus but it didn't seem all that comfortable. Maybe because it was a smaller plane. I think it was a 737, not really sure but it had 3 seats on each side with no middle row. Food is for purchase! Outrageous."

Cons: "The seating, being separated from my wife!"

Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"

Cons: "I tryed to call and send messages to chande the date of flight, but I didn't get any answers from agent. ANA Japan said they cannot handle the changing flight. So I haven't got a return ticket rescheduled. Please advice me how to get new ticket back to Hawaii date of 9/12 or 13 ASAP."

Cons: "Didn't really like the food plane that was offered, seating are so uncomfortable, had a child crying the whole way, wifi didn't work, there was a magazine in my sitting area with ink where I got ink on me, board was late"

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."

Cons: "They didn't have the food I wanted by the time they got to the back of the plane"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and nice!"
Cons: "Hardly any space and no type of entertainment whatsoever and NO chargers, not even a USB charge port."

Pros: "Overbooked and could not accommodate 3 guests who had tickets. Seems a bit crazy to think they are still over booking flights after recent incidents."
Cons: "Not to overbook and cause anxiety."

Pros: "Flight Crew was helpful & apologetic for the inconvenience I incurred."
Cons: "The Who,e entire flight I had no Wifi and it was almost a seven hour flight."

Cons: "Flight was aborted on the runway, we were returned to the terminal, and flight was delayed over 6 hours."

Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Original seating for my spouse and I was 20 rows apart, then wanted to charge me $244 to be seated together. Crew ran out of food when they got to us in the 50th row on an 8 hour flight. Some crew members attitude were not very friendly."

Cons: "5 minutes before we boarded they tried to change my seat without informing me.... luckily it popped up on my phone that my seat had changed I reserved an aisle seat when I made my reservations five days before the flight. All of a sudden they put me in the middle seat ...so I went to the counter and the person at the counter tried to tell me that I just changed to the aisle seat that I had which I actually have had for 5 days and she tried to tell me that I was lying to her I was not very pleased with United at all!!! I made it very clear and even showed her the email from 5 days ago where I had that seats all along the aisle seat that she took away from me and put me in the middle somewhere so three minutes later she told me to look at my phone and she changed me back but that's after she basically called me a liar and said I didn't know what I was talking about!! Worst US AIRLINE!!"

Pros: "I had the distinct pleasure of flying in an aisle seat in the back of the plane with an empty middle seat. I quickly and effectively commandeered the middle screen (for flight information) and underseat storage to provide extra leg room in front of me. The flight attendants on my side of the plane were all friendly and wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment lacked a little... entertainment. There was a simingly limited selection of films and those available were mostly, to be frank, terrible. The food, not terrible, was simply par for an airline. There was also a rather heated discussion between a flight attendant and a passenger on the opposite side of the plane from me."

Pros: "Crew members are very kind and thoughtful."
Cons: "They must be notified 4-5 hours delay departs departs before arrived airport. I left at 3:30 heatherton circle,dacula. Ga. To airport. After that I got the airplane has been delayed, and my flight schedule has completely change. I don't want think about it because I'm very tired ."

Cons: "Ever since gas prices went up to 5 a gallon years ago, the airlines started charging for food, checked bags etc etc. Now that gas prices have come down, the airlines still charge for said items. Totally LAME"

Pros: "Quick boarding, arrived early, great selection on entertainment system (and free)"
Cons: "It baffles me that meals aren't included on a 10 hour flight simply because it's a domestic flight. There are shorter (and cheaper) flights to London that include meals and alcohol."

Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Water and drinks were offered regularly. For those who had the app there was inflight entertainment. We paid for plus size seats and had enough leg room."
Cons: "I believe that on the long flights built in entertainment screens should be standard. Most people did not have the app and many spent 8.5 hours without anything to do. Food is not offered on this long flight unless you pay for it. You must walk to the very back of the plane where the food is in warmers. I got a hamburger and it was a bit dried out. Could have been worse...just hard to handle since tomato, lettuce and condiments were on the side. A larger person sat next to me and took use of the armrest between us which made me feel like I lost 4 inches of my personal space."

Pros: "Thanks for the ONE toffee cookie at the beginning of the 8 hour long flight."
Cons: "I have NEVER flown on an international flight and NOT received a complimentary meal or two...When I'm flying for 8 hours. On top of that the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I shouldn't feel a person grabbing a magazine or pulling down a tray when I'm sitting in the seat in front of them. There was one younger African American flight attendant with a light brown, long curl wig that didn't look like she wanted to be there. You can tell by all her eye rolls, sighs and not responding back to numerous thank yous given to her. I couldn't consistently watch a show or movie for 3 minutes thanks to the wifi and or app on MY Samsung tablet....it's SO sad that you guys couldn't have them already installed like other airlines. This airline is already in hot water, I expected MUCH better customer service. I will do my best NOT to use them again and tell others to do the same."

Cons: "The flight was delayed so we were stuck in the airport all day. The plane ride was alright, except that the attendants were unorganized and impatient."

Pros: "The entertainment was free because of the delayed departure."
Cons: "We left late (again) and the crew was not very friendly."

Pros: "The crew on board the flights were always friendly and Stern with unruly customers. Very good job in that department."
Cons: "I am 5'10 and 155 lbs I wasn't so cramped in the sets that when the person infront of me put there seat back I couldn't cross my leg or sit comfortable. I can't imagine what a person any taller or larger then me felt. Oh also the average size man sitting extra to me was spilling over my seat. Luckily he did not smell and was very apologetic. The only reason I booked through united was because of how cheap they were. But with Lon delays. Rude check in emoployees, bad snacks, zero in flight entertainment 7.99 to watch tv? Come on you have us trapped already. (returning to Hawaii) and one of the worst seating set ups of my life. Yeah I'll gladly go back to delta."

Pros: "Overhead bin space"
Cons: "5 able-bodied pax's allowed pre-board privilege because they were traveling with a single wheelchair pax was ridiculous. No signage on seat of where to locate power charge."

Cons: "The 4 hour delay due to "wifi" issue caused us to miss our connecting flight to Kona, Hawaii! We thought it would be a quicker and shorter flight buying a direct flight from United from IAD to HNL then to Kona, but we were wrong! We are upset and disappointed that it caused us a day of our vacation! We will avoid United for future travels!"

Pros: "The flight landed safely and was only a few minutes late after delayed departure of 25 minutes."
Cons: "A problem passenger ruined the flight for me and several others. He continually left his seat when the seat belt sign was on. I figured he was back smoking or vaping in the lavatory as he came back smelling strongly of after shave, bit seeing him weave around he must've been drinking. Then he stood in the aisle and poured more after shave down his shirt and outside his shirt. The smell was so strong it gave me a headache and make me sick to my stomach. Then he left his seat and sat behind us somewhere with a woman. A flight attendant told another man to come up and sit where he had been sitting. After the man went to sleep this guy came up and kicked him out of his seat. Then he asked the guy by the windows to switch seats with him which the guy did Kama then he proceeded to make him move several times as he had to get out and get out of his seat looking for something. I'm not sure how these things are handled normally but this guy really ruined for me. Aren't there consequences for ignoring all the rules? I probably won't fly United again."

Pros: "Staff and timeliness of flight."
Cons: "1) Seats barely recline beyond 90 degrees. 2) Food was unimpressive. 3) Paying for cocktails on a long haul flight is absurd. 4) Instructed to "download a ridiculous app" for entertainment. 5) finally downloaded stupid app but didn't have my laptop available as it was in checked baggage so tried to watch a bad movie on my IpHone...??? 6) Outlet to plug my power sources for mobile devices into was not functioning."

Cons: "personal entertainment connection was spotty."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "How rude the women airline attendants are /the extreme lack of leg room"

Cons: "I Purchased 2 round trip tickets for myself and my son. My son had a change of plans and purchased another one way ticket to leave a week earlier. So his first leg of my purchase was not used. They resold that seat on May 27. So they made money Twice on that seat. Then when we checked in to return on 15 June. We were told his ticket had been cancelled and I had to purchase another ticket for his return. The flight was NOT sold out. My entire row of seats was empty. So I paid for 2 seats for the same flight. This is theft, coming and going and I am calling my lawyer!"

Pros: "I enjoyed very little about this experience. The crew was cordial however they lose the ability to perform simple tasks by the long standing protocols and overcrowded flights. Most of the crew are as unhappy as the passengers."
Cons: "The plane hit the brakes while taking off and returned to the gate due to a warning light. We were told nothing other than we needed to wait. They said the fix took 5 minutes but our wait took 2 hours. Not efficient. They rent out tablets for on plane entertainment, unlike every other plane I've ever flown, they make you pay to keep you happy during a 5.5 hour flight. Food was horrible. The seat did not recline and they eradicate every ounce of comfort to overpack the plane. The Captian made little announcements and the one he did make upon decent, started with "please fasten your seat belts, we are 65 miles away from Honolulu but...", I was sure the "light" came back on 30k feet about the pacific and we were going down. Finally - the last announcement from the head stewardess didn't include "Aloah, thank you for flying United". Seems minor but it goes to show they don't care anymore. That's the first time I hadn't heard the welcomed message after my 20th trip to the Islands. After my return flight I vow to never fly United again."

Cons: "We were frustrated because we chose United flights but then got put on Island air from Maui to Honolulu who has completely different baggage guidelines and ended up costing us quite a bit more because our carry-ones weren't 16 lbs or below. I don't like things like that, so I wasn't very happy with that part of the trip. I don't think that is United's fault-probably Kayak's. Flying in general just isn't pleasant anymore. The crews aren't happy or fun and they've gotten so cheap on everything, and charge you out the nose for everything. The airplanes weren't clean. My 2 year old had to brush off a seat of crumbs on her seat before she sat down! Just sad where it's gotten in this crazy world. We used to love to fly, and now we are just always glad to be done with the flights!"

Pros: "They gave us a blanket"
Cons: "I got to Honolulu past midnight instead of 9:40pm. Because of the delay, I lost my rental car and now it t will cost me 3x more."
