Great food options in first class. Great movie options and attentive crew.
You guys already know that coach sucks.. *lol* You got us all packed in like veal fattening pens. *lol*
There were no employees checking baggage until 4:30am despite there being several 6am flights. There were people truly worried as I was that I would miss my flight. They should’ve had employees working earlier to accommodate to their schedules.
There was a lady pilot. She helped an older lady get on and off the plane and she helped me with my crabby children get off the plane. It meant the world to me. One of the flight attendants was berating a family in front of me about the 2 year old child’s inability/willingness to wear a mask. I am all for wearing masks, but a little child who doesn’t understand why it’s important to wear a mask and is melting down - is it really that important. I understand the need to follow policy’s.

Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Vivian and her coworkers were fantastic!"
Pros: "My flying experience with Delta was and has always been great. Always professional and courteous crew and employees."
Pros: "Like you let a rookie land the plane. Rest of the flight was great. But the landing was sketchy af"
Pros: "every person who was not a delta employee, those people were kind and helpful."
Cons: "The gate agent was the opposite of professional. You might as well get a cardboard cutout. The gate agent was unable or unwilling to explain when and how I would get my seat assignment and with what group I should board with. A passenger helped me. I am a frequent flyer, primarily AA, I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Media kept freezing. They had to reboot the system several times."
Pros: "Too crowded overhead storage got filled right away. Had to place my bag under seat. Could not extend my legs."
Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch."

Pros: "Every one was nice"
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Wifi never works. I wanted to charge my phone, but my outlets weren't working, either (my neighbor had no issues). Kinda sucked considering I was planning on working on my flight to New York. The AC was blasting humid air, so it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "I was automatically upgraded."
Cons: "I was upgraded, which I appreciate very much. However, I was upgraded to a window seat. With my bladder situation it was comfortable. This is why I only book aile seats."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy. My standard carry on luggage did not fit the over head compartment."
Pros: "The flight attendant was pleasant"
Cons: "As usual, Delta regional jets with recurring mechanical problems change of planes, change of gates delay take off etc. This carrier has become a nightmare on this Detroit to Kalamazoo leg."
Pros: "Love Delta and their attention to customer service. They make you feel overall that they value you as a customer."
Cons: "My seat was broken and when the seat in front of me reclined, it was very uncomfortable. I was just thankful it was an 1.5 hour flight and we didn't get stuck on the runway in NYC like my last two flghts."
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."
Pros: "Nice power nap, quick flight!"
Pros: "Very professional and caring."
Pros: "2 seats by windows, rather than 3, and the roominess plus ease of using the media tv screen and options. the beverage options and food options were plentiful as well as good quality."
We boarded the plane on time. The pilot discovered a problem with hydraulics that was going to take about one hour to repair. We deplaned and waited about an hour and a half to reboard. The flight was smooth; the landing rather bumpy. The crew was wonderful.
The plane was up to date and comfortable. Everyone courteous. Nice trip
I just for my TSA. So security line is short and upgraded to one group up. I do think the ground crew should learn new way of boarding - the passengers sitting in higher number seat should board first to prevent traffic jam.
Cons: "Better spacing. Don't tell me the last two rows are blocked off for safety that's bs, they were blocked off so the flight attendants could have a row to themselves."
Cons: "Fog in Philly. AA should have diverted our plane to a bigger airport where AA could have serviced us (eg. Washington DC). Instead AA diverted us to Salibury/Ocean City!! We missed our connections."
Cons: "Everything was good except the delay of the fight itself and then the baggage we received almost an hour later with priority tags."
Cons: "The jerks left early despite the fact that security and baggage were backed up. We ran to our gate and barely missed the flight. Jerks! Who leaves early when so many passengers are missing?!"
Pros: "Seat was o.k. Loved that captain made periodic announcements, esp to point out Niagara Falls ."
Cons: "It was a very good flight. I had a tired back.... suspect it's because I'm short, (5 ft tall) seats are somewhat uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
Pros: "On time and quick boarding process"
Cons: "The attendants at the gates could have been more pleasant"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful"
Cons: "Better weather"
Pros: "Pero AA Me conectaron de inmediato al proximo vuelo y logre llegar a mi Cena de Navidad con mi familia.. Gracias"
Cons: "que las distancias dentro de los gates del aeropuerto es muy larga y como no camino rapido perdi mi vuelo..."
Cons: "There were no inflight entertainment. This is the only international flight I have ever taken that didn’t have any. For an 8+ hour flight, it’s ridiculous not to. The food was also worse than typical airline food."
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"
Pros: "Had to take three flights to get from Maine to California. All were on time or ahead of schedule. Flight attendants did exceptional work on each flight."
Cons: "My left ear still won’t clear but other than that nothing."
Pros: "Macy in the first class cabin was friendly, attentive and very efficient."
Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"
Pros: "great staff making you feel like home. flight on time,definitely recommend to all."
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time. Because airlines have so games their system by setting expectations of on time arrival so low that it is nearly impossible to not exceed them."
Cons: "The plane was so old the overhead lights didn’t work in our section (who failed to check that??). The overhead bins fell open at landing and things almost fell on people’s heads. There was subpar entertainment options that hadn’t been updated since at least the 90s, which was made even less acceptable since it was literally the only option for entertainment on a 7+ hour flight when none of the overhead lights worked. For a ticket that cost more than $1200, the failure of the airline on nearly all levels to provide standard services was completely unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "The agents kept us posted"
Cons: "The delay but it happens"
Pros: "upgraded to business, which made for a nice ride home."
Cons: "seat and monitor seemed to have minds of their own, but only caused a minor inconvenience I'm frustrated with AA's information on movies, which is questionable and unrealable. For example, the recently released film 'Coco' was listed as PG-13 and not included in the "Disney" category. "Justice League" was listed as R. There are several other examples of misinformation in their movie listings. For parents who use the ratings as one piece of information to guide their children, it would be nice to have correct information when making selections. this problem is not new; it's been this way for over a year now. I hoped that over time they would get it right, but alas, it remains inconsistent at best."
Pros: "I've recently had problems with other airlines in the past few years. It seems that flight attendants get more and more rude by the day! I had nothing but a pleasant time on both these flights though. Everyone was cordial and respectful!"
Cons: "Don't have a conplaint."
Cons: "Space on coach seats was awful."
Pros: "The flight was as advertised. Nothing particularly special other than reliable which was just fine with us."
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Pros: "Great at all."
Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "Finding checked luggage at philadelphia airport. Inadequate signs and helpful people. It was very hard on my wife who is disabled to walk to the luggage carousel and we didnt see anyone who could help with disabilities."
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time; great crew"
Cons: "Waiting 30 minutes to get off the plane because they couldn't use the gate assigned to them."
Pros: "The fact that there were recently released movies in the system."
Cons: "4 1/2 hr delay in out trip. Losing our connection and rude crew."
Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Cons: "Overnight stay due to missed flight with no luggage or medication."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Plane is dated and a little crowded"
Pros: "Quick action on potential turbulence"
Cons: "Too warm on the plane."
Pros: "Overall, it was a decent flight. Tucked way in the back, but no major issues."
Cons: "One flight attendant spent the majority of the flight flirting with the guy behind me. Another had a voice so loud that I could hear him through my earplugs and Bose headphones while trying to sleep on the overnight flight. I also don't like that I booked with Qantas and ended up on an American flight."
Cons: "Return flight was delayed, gate changes unfriendly and unhelpful flight attendants"
Pros: "No delays, went smoothly. Had to check my bag at the gate but no big deal."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "Not much...we did leave on time"
Cons: "All most everything. The seats are too small. I felt like I was in a cattle car. The food was cheap and offered little in nutrition. The attendants seemed to be understaffed although one attendant tried hard to be courteous. The lavatories were reeking by the time we landed. Flying has become a chore. As a result of this experience I will look for other airlines in the future."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using onboard wifi, as well as 2 tv shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Pros: "While boarding, flight attendants were very nice and attentive. Served several snacks and choice of drinks."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "the different sections of the plane made it feel smaller. Great food in flight along with the entertainment."
Cons: "it was a long flight, not enough movies to watch throughout the flight. Only dc outlets available which i wasn't prepared for"
Best check in - Great help - thanks
I do not like that United Airlines charges you an extra $100 to get seats together. Our family of five was separated on every flight and it was really hard with an eight year old. Will definitely be flying a different airline
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Wish the wifi was faster; not that much on IFE. Food was good but not great."
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 4 hours. Took another flight"
Pros: "Love the movies available on the United app"
Cons: "The A/C was blowing ice cubes at me, which wasn't the worst because it was pretty warm yesterday, but still it was less than ideal."
Pros: "Super fast, easy overnight flight. They kept the announcements short to allow us to sleep."
Cons: "Not as comfy as some planes I’ve been on, and no TVs but they did have WiFi available."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Pros: "Too pissed off to comment"
Cons: "Still in Houston after spending the night. Flight from Boston to SFO WAS DELAYED SEVERAL TIMES and we would have missed our connection to HNL. So we were diverted to IAH, where we spent the night and will leave for HNL soon."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "The plane was so small and uncomfortable. People care more about chickens having adequate space in their cages more than humans have space on an airplane."
Cons: "Food and charging for entertainment"
Pros: "The United employees handled everything. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We had a delay our flight up two hours"
Pros: "Free Movies."
Cons: "Got delayed 3+ hours. No food on flight. No leg room."
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty much what I've come to expect on U.S. airlines--overweight, older, and sloppy in appearance. One of them looked like she had rolled out of bed ten minutes before arriving at the gate. It was the complete antithesis to the flight attendants on Hong Kong Airlines. Ah, for the good old days of air travel. Before the plane ever took off it was announced the the entertainment system on the seat back ahead of those in comfort seats was not working and wouldn't be for the duration of the flight. Having paid an additional $239 for the comfort seat in the hopes of making a 16-hour flight go by a bit faster, this was unconscionable. The food was far inferior to Hong Kong Airlines. In short, it was the trip from hell."
Cons: "I never made it to this flight due to delay when flying CPH-EWR"
Pros: "We will never fly united... NEVER EVER AGAIN"
Cons: "United airlines employee Mearle at the check in counter was extremely disrespectful, Rude, and arrogant towards everyone in line at the counter Trying to check in. Many customers including us waitted in the check in line for 35 minutes or more while Mearle proceeded to chat on her cell phone (personal call), and taking a break leaning the check in counter while everyone waited on her so she could assist with check in. Finally the passengers in front of us voice their concern to mearle stating that everyone is going to miss theirs flights if she didn't assist us all right away. Mearle responded by snapping back by saying "it's not my fault that united keep us understaffed and pay us enough to care " then laughed and walked away again. At this point we realized that if we did not get immediate assistance, that we would surly miss our flight. I walked in front of the line on behalf of everyone standing in line and reiterated to Mearle in a firm tone that she insisting check in the remaining 12 passengers immediately. Mearle snapped back telling me to "worry about my own self and don't tell me how to do my own job". Feeling very stressed out And worried about missing my flight went and stood back in line again. A few moments later I over heard Mearle tell the passengers ahead of us " you're too late. You've missed your flight" these passengers became very upset with Mearle telling her that she's the reason they missed the flight and Mearle laughed and said out loud to everyone else in line.. "you all missed your flight. You all should be more responsible next time and get here earlier" and then Mearle walked away never to be see again. Many of us missed our flight which caused many of us to also miss our connecting flights. We immediately called the 800 number and filed a complaint. Then we were forced to drive three hours in traffic to LAX where we caught a later flight and barely made it to our destination in time for our work event. We swore that because of Mearle and her disgusting behavior that we will never ever fly united again (and I fly a lot for my job) and since that horrible experience with Mearle two months ago, I've flown on four trips spending over $2300 dollars and every flight has been booked through American Airlines. Do to Mearle's bad attitude, disrespectful personality, and poor representation of united we will never do business with united again. We suggest united airlines remove Mearle from Having any contact with the general public as we are sure that Mearle is loosing customers for united at a very rapid pace."
Pros: "First through all the issues I will say that the staff was nice and helped us the best they could to fix what went wrong. Except one thing..."
Cons: "The flight to Chicago got delayed due to weather (not Uniteds fault), then got stuck in Sioux Falls due to need for gas (also not Uniteds fault), but when we finally got to Chicago and got told we couldn't continue on to our destination for two days United refused to get us a hotel room. They said that since no one had entered the mechanical failure that made us stay in Sioux Falls (also not Uniteds fault) that they couldn't give us rooms at a hotel. What a crock. We ended up having to borrow money from my in laws to be able to afford a hotel room for 2 days."
Cons: "Exact same plane from previous post.... Tail # N75435 Boeing 737-900 .... not the best bird in the fleet right now. Took nearly half the flight to get internet going, and in-seat power was not working at all."
Pros: "Since the plane was an hour late, many with connecting flights worried about making their connections. It'd be helpful if there was a way to communicate with flights to know whether one would make the connection or not. trying to get off the plane in a hurry is stressful."
Pros: "Smooth and very friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Videos of procedures are so unrealistically calm."
Pros: "Very rough conditions into BOS, pittsfield did great job."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process and on-time departure. Saving 20 minutes on such a late flight was really appreciated."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Boarded plane with my 8 week old baby. After getting settled had to deplane due to mechanical issues. Then I stalled feeding as he has to nurse during takeoff to relieve pressure. Airline kept slightly postponing it so wasn't comfortable nursing as I needed him to eat during takeoff. But no realistic time was ever given. Eventually they cancelled flight and they rebooked next day. Then united realized they would have to give travel vouchers / hotel if flight was cancelled so they re labeled it "delayed" to avoid putting everyone up in a hotel. 13.5 hrs of a delay overnight is not a delay and deserves better treatment! To add insult to injury, my GATE checked stroller took 45 min to come up to the top of the jetway. 45 minutes! I had to ask 4 times with a screaming 8 week old with nowhere to set him! The kind girl kept paging down to them but nobody would bring it up. It was absolutely horrible. Then today at check-in they couldn't figure out how to print the infant boarding pass which ultimately took 30-40 min of the lady trying to no avail. I arrived 1 hr 10 min early to my flight and nearly missed it due to United. The issues with printing my "infant voucher" caused me to have to run through the airport and frantically collapse stroller to make on time. With zero sleep thanks to the debacle the night before. Beyond disappointed and believe should be compensated for this experience."
Cons: "The fligjht diidnt happen. I double booked the flight. But when I tried to adjust it I wasn't allowed to without crazy fees. This was after an agent told me that he would wave the fee. Their not on the same page and they do not honor what you're told."
Cons: "No mechanics available and had to send for some, taking 5 hours. Didn't get to destination until late at night and missed my event."
Cons: "Total disaster due to some snow, excessive delays"
Pros: "The staff were good."
Cons: "I didn't like how we left more than two hours late. United always pulls this kind of thing. The flight was overbooked, so we weren't going anywhere until people volunteered to take later flights. To allow enough time for someone to volunteer, aircraft maintenance was 'required', a scenario I have seen on a few other United flights. Honestly, I will never fly United again and am cancelling my future flights in favor of taking the train instead. It takes eight hours instead of a theoretical 1.5 hours, but at least it is reliable and not much worse than the ACTUAL time it takes to fly United. Worst airline ever. Barf."
Pros: "The flight was on time, there was no unnecessary delays."
Cons: "I just feel they could do better,but it was okay."
Cons: "6'2" broad shoulders and uncomfortable. Sitting by the window meant my leg had to be 5 inches over due to the curvature of the plane. Both of my knees were on the back of the seat and I was at an angle. The lady next to me looked like she did't like me being turned toward her. Many extra seats including the emergency exit row (that has more room) was available when we took off but I was told we couldn't sit there without paying extra. Cheap 1 hour flight. Won't tolerate it for anything else."
Pros: "An eighty-five mile an hour tailwind got us from Los Angeles to Denver twenty-five minutes early. At LAX, our departure gate was only three gates from the arrival gate of our connecting flight, so no long trek through LAX. Seats on our 737-900 were tight and didn't recline far but, hey, United is the Wal-Mart of modern air travel. What do you expect?!"
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Pros: "i liked the fact that it was a short trip so i could make my way home from there."
Pros: "The flight was cheapest one available"
Cons: "Flight arrived to destination 25 minutes late, which caused 30% of flight to miss their United connecting flight. United books too short of layover times (30-40 minutes) and is notoriously late on their flights."
Pros: "One crew member for the baggage crew was helpful."
Cons: "They lost my luggage which I had to put my medication on. I ended up needing to go to the emergency room to get the medication."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hrs due to lack of maintenance of the plane and we had to all get off to wait for the next one. It was also overbooked."
Cons: "the airplane is really old! Don't have any amenities."
Pros: "The entertainment on board was great. The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Ticket was sold as Lufthansa but it was a United flight and plane. The United lounge was overcrowded and pleasures poor amenities. We were delayed for 3 hours because of navigation malfunctions, according to the captain. I almost missed my connection in Munich and the staff in Germany was not helpful at all in helping me figure out my options."
Pros: "Cookies were very tasty."
Cons: "Seat would not recline."
Cons: "United are the most rudest phone people on the phone to deal with and if it's there fault they never want to comp u last time I fly with united"
Pros: "See above comment"
Cons: "all the televisions were going on and off, on and off, doing this thing that said "searching" and they would go black, and then turn on again in a sequence that I can only describe as a blinking Christmas light pattern all over the plane. It gave me a huge migraine, and the woman next to me covered here TV with a scarf that barely blocked out the light in her face. It was extremely distracting and I couldn't even nap."
Pros: "Friendly personality of flight attendant."
Cons: "Did not "wow" me with service."
