Charge for everything

Didn't fly. Didn't get a refund either.

i was seated apart from my girlfriend even though I bought the tickets at the same time and the flight was half full. what are some of these airlines thinking when they assign seats?

Is ok

Wingo changed departure time 3 times and kept us moving from one gate to a different one. A 1 one flight took me more than 8 hours. Don't fly wit Wingo, the worst experience ever

Nothing the vendor services and overall process was not an experience I would ever want to revisit again .

Cons: "None really. Is a low cost airline, do not expect amenities or entertainment or confort."

The captain’s announcements were succinct, coherent, and brief—unlike the chatty confusing communications from the pilot on April 23, ORD to FCO. The flights got attendants were all very good, helpful, efficient, and friendly: I would single out as excellent an older white-haired lady, on both trips, for her cheerful and helpful attentions. The food was not as bad as it often is. Boarding in Rome was efficient and unstressful, and the over two hours going through immigration at OHare were the worst I have experienced in thirty years of frequent flights abroad. Can’t the airlines put some pressure to insure that the people at OHare can speak English at least as well as the personnel in foreign airports? My wife and I have agreed that we will in future foreign travel avoid returning to America at O’Hare.

Good experience

6 hours late. Kept on the runway for 45 min

Pros: "Not much maybe just the boarding"
Cons: "The staff needs to be retrained a lot like many police personal and subsequent Police departments. The first class is literally coach with a slightly nicer seat. They treat you like cattle at American Airlines. If you have another option take it."
Pros: "Nice clean new airplane, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Time to start offering complimentary wifi in first class"
Pros: "Meal provided was excellent"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "nothing lousy flight"

Cons: "Boarding very slow in Medellin -always- Entertainment only in your phone now!"
Cons: "One of the seats in fseat"
Pros: "The crew was great. The seat was adequate but NOT comfortable. The request/requirement for only the wheelie bags to be in the overhead and everything else to be under the seat was EXCELLENT. Thank you for organizing the amount of “stuff” people carry on to the plane."
Cons: "I needed a little back support pillow..."
Pros: "Great and welcoming crew."
Pros: "Every thing! Healthier food needed"
Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."
Pros: "No hassle boarding or deplaning"
Cons: "Cramped seats. I am a loyal JetBlue customer, the seating consistently better than the major airlines."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Flight departure was on time."
Cons: "The food. Same sandwich the last 4 years."
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "The crew kept bumping into people and were not a pleasant group."
Pros: "Good service. The crew was very attentive. The pilots were very good about relaying Typhoon related issues to the passengers; and doing their best to get us to our destination as close to on time as they could"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Cons: "The y chance the gate 3 times. And ir was delates."
Pros: "Entire flight crew was friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "We got home early"
Cons: "The sandwich was auwful"
Pros: "Comfortable and cleaned."
Cons: "Boarding was a little crazy."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly"
Cons: "No individual movie screen. Entertainment bad for an international flight. I paid for selected seats but did not receive, instead our family was scattered about the plane."
Pros: "Let’s begin by saying that this plane should not be flying anymore, it’s dated and doesn’t offer any type of comfort.n No entertainment, seats are extremely uncomfortable, my husband seat was broken and wouldn’t recline. Flight attendants were sloppy and never brought me anything I asked. I asked for lactose free meal and my breakfast was a yogurt... Not worth the price I paid for this flight... stay away!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Arrived 1 hour and 10 min before take off and American Airlines didn’t let us check in. We explain then that our 19 months got car sick so we were cleaning him on the curb and they refuse to check us in and tell us we were too late. Even if we beg them as we were going to Paris to spend Xmas with our family. No flight for us ..."
Pros: "The free movies were a generous provision. The American Airlines ad was cool. The screen to trace the flight geographically was neat, as were the details about height, temperature, time until landing, and so forth. The service people were nice."
Cons: "The space under the seats on the floor has gotten very small."
Cons: "No food available. Only drinks. In a flight late in the night."
Pros: "The flight attendants were fantastic. They took great care of us the entire trip."
Cons: "Trying to figure out where to go in each airport for customs, integrations, and gate changes."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment has definitely improved. Nice to see how organize is the boarding process when compare to other local airlines."
Cons: "I was seating in the front of the plane were the seating should be better. The seat reclined minimum. Also, had the had luck to travel next to an amazing mother who was traveling with two small kinds and a dog. Brave woman but nasty flight for me. Need to improve the meals on the international flights. Too mediocre."
Pros: "Staff was polite and friendly. It was a great experience!"
Pros: "short"
Cons: "second security check at gate where they wouldn't allow me to bring water even though I was sick and bought it after 1st security also threw away my lotion that had gotten through first security"
Pros: "Always a great experience w American especially for service members"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because of a misrepresentation made by an agent when I had to rebook the outgoing leg of this trip. I had to pay $670 for new ticket at the airport with no other options and very little help from the LatAm agents. I'll never book another ticket with this airline."
Cons: "Plane was good overall but I was horrified by my previous AA flight I was connecting from so I didn't feel good about it the whole time."
Cons: "I never experienced the flight because I wasn't given a seat. The airline oversold the flight and I never got to go. I missed my once in a lifetime experience because the airline is greedy at my (and other people's) expense. I missed out on a priceless experience. Not only that, the bag that I checked did not make it off the flight so I remained in DC while my bag went to Medellin. I had to purchase new toiletries and had to make arrangements to get back to the airport. As of now, I do not plan on choosing American Airline nor LATAM for my future flights."
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and had good foot space."
Pros: "Schedules were always on time, the price was the best"

Cons: "there is not much selection for in-flight food"
Pros: "same as above"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and warm"
Cons: "The entertainment was poor and not visible from everywhere (understandable from an old plane)"
Pros: "the plane took off an hour late and they didn't explain what was going on until like, 40 min after we should have taken off. also, the plane was really loud and felt like it was going to fall apart. the reason we were delayed was because they needed to fix the door latch. i dont' think that's all that needed fixing."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was nice, and it was nice that we were served lunch."
Cons: "On my flight from Medellin to Miami, the stewardess did not offer my row a drink. Then when I asked for one, I was told I can only have water or juice, of which I wanted neither. The plane rides were both extremely hot and uncomfortable. I was sweating profusely on both flights."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "flight has been cancelled, airline staff gave me hotel vouchers which the hotel would NOT honor, I went back and forth twice because those two hotels would not accomodate american airline passenger vouchers, I end up calling a friend to pick up at the airport she has to drive for an hour just to pick me up, I regret buying a ticket in american airline"
Pros: "The cookies were good"
Cons: "The gangplank was broken. It took so long for them to ascertain the situation, move the broken gangplank away, move the plane from gate B15 to B16, load passengers & luggage and take off, that I missed my connection in LaGuardia. I had to get a standby flight & thankfully got on. Why wasn't that equipment checked out long before it was used?"
Pros: "Fast boardin times"
Pros: "That I picked window seat so I could stare out the window thinking about all the ways this experience was shitty"
Cons: "They not only gave horrible last minute flight changes that caused me to miss my connecting flight"
Cons: "Boarded 3 timres and flight delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "Flight was almost on time"
Cons: "I was refused a seat assignment until minutes before boarding. Blocking seats on the excuse of "special needs travelers is not acceptable to other customers who booked in advance and have already paid the fare. Also, I got my seat assignment notification email after I was already on the plane. That wasn't helpful."
Pros: "Crew was really nice"
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable, and we also waiting around on the ground 25 minutes until we were allowed to take off."

Pros: "Alot of empty seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Very basic not so comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Tiny dirty old smelly plane. Freezing cold. No blankets. Flight was also an hour late. No food."
Pros: "Everything but the temperature"
Cons: "Too cold on plane. It's better than too hot, but it seemed like it was all or nothing."
Pros: "Well we boarded and left early..."
Cons: "No free entertainment, kept us on the plane for 30 minutes before getting in to the gate, and left our luggage on a later flight."
Pros: "Nothing. It was extremely stressful dealing with the cancellation."
Cons: "However flight from Athens to Munich sucked. Charged for carry on at check in , even thou others before boarding were checked there’s for free since flight was full. If that was the case I should of gotten mine free. Wish United would drop Lufthansa airlines."
Pros: "Lots of space"
Cons: "Ground agend kicked over my kid’s milk. Stewardess spilled coke all over my wife’s tray and then spilled red wine all over my arm. Seriously."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight going to Ontario left before I even arrived"

Cons: "My flight was delayed by a few minutes and by the time we got to San Francisco, boarding was almost done for my connecting flight. I had to literally run from one end of the United terminals to the other... the entire horse shoe."
Pros: "We were serviced in the way we expect from United."
Cons: "The seats were really uncomfortable and the pull down table was really dirty. I didn't use it because it was dirty with miscellaneous substances."
Pros: "The crew was hospitable and friendly. They helped me get to my seat and were very effiecient during their food service."
Cons: "As soon as we boarded, the told us that the wifi was unavailable throughout the flight."
Pros: "My flight was delayed multiple and had to get a taxi to LAX which we even missed that flight because the gate attendants waited so late to make a decision. We are still traveling as we speak and are looking to arrive in Raleigh after 3pm. Which is 8 hours later than our orginal flight."
Pros: "We arrived on time and I had no problems ."
Cons: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "Despite delay, pilot made up time in air and we made our connection in Denver. Advice to download United app for free entertainment ahead of takeoff meant we didn't miss the chance to offer movies to our kids on flight. In-flight crew was incredibly friendly/helpful."
Cons: "Gate attendant was INCREDIBLY unfriendly - made no eye contact or completely ignored our verbal greetings/thanks during early boarding w/ our young child. Delayed an hour out of Baltimore, we were worried we'd miss our connection."
Pros: "The flight went as expected"
Cons: "I did not get notice of a last minute Terminal change, and had to run to the gate, even though I was at the terminal 3 hours before my flight. I signed up for push notifications, texts, and email, but Igor no notice."
Pros: "The stroll waffle"
Cons: "I felt like a commodity that only existed to squeeze money out of. I'm a petite person, 5 foot tall and 115 pounds yet I felt cramped in your tiny seats."
Pros: "Aguadilla airport is crazy at 2:00 am. I never really heard them call for me to get on the plane to Newark so if I wasn't really paying attention I might have missed my flight"
Cons: "It was late and getting there was even worse. I was told I wouldn't make my connecting flight in Newark on the way there so I had to go home and come back the next day. Of course it was weather related so you can't control that."
Cons: "Missed the lufthanza flight by 5 minutes. United should have coordinated to have Lufthansa wait for 6+ passengers making the same connection or should have had an airport cart expedite us across terminals and gates to make the flight."
Cons: "No food no entertainment. It's a sad change from how United used to be"
Pros: "WIFI allowed access to imessage"
Cons: ""Free" movies and TV didn't work"
Pros: "Their mom"
Cons: "The plane left 15 minutes early and left eight passengers stranded in Houston for more than 24 hours before they could get us home"
Pros: "I was extremely late getting to the airport due to traffic accidents. The crew held the door open for me after security let them know I was there. I am truly thankfull!"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful"
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Crammed unconfortable"
Cons: "This flight was my third delayed United flight in under 3 days. I will not be flying with United again. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Pros: "The plane is new and it was spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "They change the gate and no one told us anything, just when someone asked they told us, flight was delayed but fortunately we arrived on time. You have to pay for al the entertainment."
Pros: "My flight got cancelled. I went to SanDiego inste6"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and efficient. They were extremely helpful with our requests. The entertainment was good, I was able to watch a movie the whole flight home."
Cons: "We were expected to land at 5pm and did not land until 5:20pm. Upon arrival, the line to immigration was ridiculous. The machines were super slow and kept freezing. It took an hour before we could get to the X-ray line. At this point we had already missed the original time of our flight. Luckily the flight was delayed 30 minutes. After going through the x-ray machines we ran to our gate only to find out it had been changed and delayed again. We made it to our flight which was now rescheduled to depart at 7:23pm. After sitting in the plane for 45 minutes we did not depart until 8pm making our landing 2 hours after the original time."
Pros: "In today's travel world a tiny bag of pretzels reigns supreme. However, I would not constitute this as a rating element titled 'food'. This item is more of a N/A."
Cons: "Food is sandwiches or platters, for example. Since most travelers do not experience being served food on local flights these days, the selection of answers for this category should be updated to include N/A (not applicable) which is what I would've chosen. Very difficult to rate a tiny bag of pretzels 5 Stars."
Pros: "My flight stopped for over 2 hours for refueling which caused me to miss my coneccting flight, plus 2 other reschedual flights. Then no one would accomodate me on account of this. Never flying united again"
Pros: "Boarding went ahead and schedule. Service was great and polite. Food was OK nothing special"
Cons: "We actually paid for first class, but it felt more like economy plus. Not impressed at all with the size of the seats or the (entertainment options) -ha ha provided! We arrive safely and early was the other positive."
Pros: "Great customer service, loved the Halloween outfits.!"
Pros: "The"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work. The plane took off late, we were in the plane for over 8 hours and the movies kept dropping. I will never fly in United to Europe again. Our flight attendant was very slow, the other side had their food like 10 minutes before us. When it was our turn she was out of chicken. We were four traveling together and purchased our tickets at least two months in advance and they didn't seat us together."
Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Cons: "airplane seats are not comfortable--I have arthritis and recovering is tough."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 plus hours....."
Pros: "Boarding was fast, staff were friendly, even though it costs the direct tv is nice."
Cons: "Wifi was in and out and I paid for it, no free food, no free entertainment options"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was non stop to Denver."
Cons: "I did not like waiting on the plane for over an hour while the plane waited to get fuel."
