Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was very professional and polite, my flight attended (blond lady) was very pleasant and very professional. She should be promoter to teach others how to be professional without kiss passenger's a*s."
Cons: "Could be better if the check in line employee were be able to sell one way ticket to Boston at 13:20hr , instead I had to purchased round trip just to get at my destination at planned time. Also I had to pay 30 dollars to go get the next flight at 18:59hrs , which was extremely inconvenient."
Pros: "Crew were great, loved having spare seats....Just a very welcoming flight."
Cons: "My screen on the Nashville to LA wouldn't let me watch the movie I wanted too but everything else was great. Glad they were there to get me home to Australia when other airlines weren't!"

Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The plane was an outdated jalopy. I thought the exit doors were going to fly off. This was in vast contrast to the 737 plane that we had taken earlier in the day for a flight from BNA to ATL."
Cons: "My hard shell suitcase was broken during the process not sure when or where. Items in my suitcase were also damaged. The seats are so close together that it was very hard. If you are a bigger person I recommend flying first class."
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "They lost my bags in Amsterdam."
Cons: "Check carefully! Our flights were changed and the first was only ten min difference so didn’t think anything of it but when we went to check in they said we would probably miss our connection. The problem was not the time but they changed GATES were really far apart. Was resolved but kind of a hassl"
Pros: "great crew and very welcoming for me and my small dog."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment behind the seat"
Cons: "Overall it was a great fight on time boarding. Earlier arrival to norfolk than advertised Excellent crew. This is my 3rd time flying Delta I’m impressed."
Pros: "Delta’s crew is always the best. On schedule"
Cons: "This was a 2 hour flight, some entertainment would be nice..."
Pros: "Getting to my destination."
Cons: "Leg room, more room for carry on bags, coats, etc."
Cons: "Flight Delayed > Pilot on Connecting Flight"
Pros: "There was no flight booked by Kayak although I paid for my trip. I’ve addressed this 3 times & still have yet to receive a call from customer Service."
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "Everything was excellent . The food was good The crews were friendly courteous and professional. The planes were well maintained and comfortable. Everything but one thing was excellent"
Cons: "The one thing that I didn’t like is that I have a disability and cant walk very well so I requested a wheelchair and assistance to the plane. Everywhere the service was impeccable except for Nashville I never did get the wheelchair and had to walk to the gate My back hurt me for most of the next 24 hours. In my own country I was treated the worst."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "I couldn’t sleep in a chair... wish I could"
Cons: "Really rough landing"
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Pros: "First time back in about 15 years and what an improvement. Customer service is important to Delta and it shows."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work for me at first."
Cons: "Gas fume on the back seats are horrible"
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit rushed and the gate agent was visibly irritated by some passengers who didn’t check their bags."
Pros: "The plane had mechanical so we had a long delay. No fun"
Pros: "It’s was super smooth! Fast service and great customer service."
Cons: "The intercom was a little messed up."
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
Pros: "I got to fly where I needed to go."
Cons: "The vents above my entire row of seats did not work, meaning there was never any air coming out even when they were fully open. This made for a long, hot, claustrophobic ride. The flight attendants seemed first disbelieving and later unconcerned that no air came out of our vents. I doubt they even reported them as broken after the flight. Delta's new boarding process is absolute chaos. More than half the plane had no seats assigned until 20 minutes before boarding, and the seats were displayed on a screen a good 25 feet away from the gate, meaning people had to constantly walk back and forth between the doorway and the screen. The gate agents were clearly overwhelmed. If this is how Delta is organized now, I won't be flying on them again."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Punctual departures. Adequate overheard space."
Cons: "Food was mediocre for a 5-6 hour flight. I expected a little bit more."
Cons: "Delta staff taking care of rude/beligerant guests first vedore guests patiently/kindly waiting in line ... children watched that behavior and the jerks recieved special treatment. Flight staff ripped up guests boarding pass in face. Staff allowed ys to board plane and put our bags under plane and then crew timed out before take off. Never will use Delta again."
Pros: "Seating and boarding were fine. That process was relatively quick/straightforward"
Cons: "I have never had an on time Delta flight, and hopefully, it will happen one day"
Cons: "After waiting patiently through a 3 hour delay we were inbound to Minneapolis. We were set to arrive at 9:45 pm and there were multiple 10 pm connections. Delta flew into the furthest gate away, didn't communicate with the connecting flights to give it 5 more minutes and didn't have transportation waiting to bring us top our connections. After ruining across the entire length of the MSP concourse I arrived at 9:58 only to be told they already left. Worst communication I've ever seen. Delta should be ashamed."
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."
Pros: "Updating delay information"
Cons: "Chaos on boarding- Growing number of wheelchair boarding."
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "Fast boarding one way from Nashville to Boston. Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "Trash onboard from previous flight and flight attendants texting during beverage service and seemed annoyed they were having to hand out drinks and crackers. I don’t enjoy feeling like a nuisance when I’ve paid $250 for the flight. FREE WiFi didn’t work. I always avoid Delta when possible."
Cons: "Delta's entertainment app does not work with Kindle Fire"
Pros: "It was good"
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly and engaging."
Cons: "Delta customer service- terrible when I called about reservation. Agent upon arrival at airport clearly not happy about 5am shift."
Cons: "727 modern plane free movie free Wi-Fi"
Cons: "The airport crew at the check-in desk was rude"
Pros: "Short flight 35 minutes, Attendants were magnificent - friendly and focused on the customers as if they were important human beings spending hard earned cash instead of live cargo whose fares were already in the bank. This factor alone will cause me to choose Delta over others despite any small difference in price. Never waited very long in any line. Zero frustration."
Cons: "Had to pay to check a bag for the 35 min. domestic leg of my international flight which carries no baggage fee ON THE SAME AIRLINE booked at the same time. Lame."
Cons: "Rebooked me on a flight from Nassau to Atlanta, and never worried about how I would get to Nassau from Georgetown, Exuma. Never even notified me about the rebooking. TERRIBLE customer service!"
Pros: "We arrived in Atlanta"
Cons: "I think Delta must have added more rows of seats, because legroom is virtually non-existent."
Pros: "Courtesy and attention to detail of crew"
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."

Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."

Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."

Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Excellent crew made this flight very enjoyable. A lot of information during the flight about the route, arrival times and clear explanation of the departure delay. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Only 1 drinks round on a 3h flight."

Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."

Cons: "Three hour delay!"
Pros: "Crew very polite"
Cons: "In B222, Headphones didn't fit well in the audio plugs on the sides of the seats thus making very poor quality sounds while listening to music or videos. That wasn't an issue in B149. Just to let you be aware. Thanks."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Pros: "Crew was ok, comfort was ok."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 h and 10 mins. Missed the connection flight because of it. No explanation was given. Food was awful."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, service excellent and smooth flight."
Cons: "Seats in front tilting back."
Pros: "Entertainment system was ok but selection limited compared to other airlines. Crew was friendly and unobtrusive, nice for a red eye flight."
Cons: "Hate the fact that you have to pay at least $41 to reserve any seat before 24 hours before flight time, even the worst seat on the plane. Seats in coach are very narrow and poor padding makes for an uncomfortable ride or over 7 hours."
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "Only direct flight from Nashville to Europe"
Cons: "Ground staff is clumsy, boarding is messy and unorganized. They need to go fly somewhere and see how a plane should be boarded. Seats are cramped, comfort level only so-so Not a bad flight but below average"
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."

Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Cons: "My baggage was lost. This is ridiculous."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "The flight didn't last long"
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence so the flight was a bit bumpy."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and we arrived early! It was the perfect flight!"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything from boarding to landing the flight and atleast could have informed the next connection that we would be late by a few minutes so we could have caught that flight. Instead we ended running around the airport for no reason."
Pros: "On time and great crew"
Cons: "We were delayed (not really their fault), there were no USB or charging ports for a 4 hour flight, we sat on the plane after landing for about 45 minutes with no explanation, and we had to walk to the next terminal to retrieve our bags, which didn't come out for over an hour (they claimed airplane maintenance). One of the worst travel experiences I've ever had."
Pros: "Ease of boarding."
Cons: "Flight got in late and I was unable to make my connecting flight."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and on time."
Cons: "The temperature was so hot at one point I was getting sick to my stomach. Twenty minutes later I was putting on a jacket."
Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Pros: "Crew was great from checking in to the flight attendant and cockpit."
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "The crew barrels down the isle with the cart on am already cramped plane. LAX construction consistently causes ridiculous waits on the tarmac after landing. The deplaning process was super slow."
Cons: "The landing was very rough from Nashville to Dallas"
Pros: "I got to converse with the pilots before getting on board, and they were super awesome guys. Flight attendants were attentive and checked in frequently enough."
Cons: "Didn’t get my whole can of soda and pretzels are cardboard."
Pros: "Embarrassed to say but there wasn’t one thing I enjoyed about this trip. I felt like I down graded to Spirit or Frontier Airlines. The flight was terribly hot, delayed multiple times coming and going. Given, I paid for priority round trip, I was delayed to Main boarding and seated in 7A."
Cons: "Adjustments to the above statement. In addition to my next travels plans, I’d like to be seated in First class. My next travel dates with AA are 06/27/2019-07/05/2019. Please feel to contact me directly firstname.lastname@example.org"
Cons: "No seat power, poor connection for movies and they kept freezing"
Cons: "Changed my flight time bc of Max 8 which ruined my meeting schedule. Then the outlets in my row were not working so I could not do work or watch entertainment."
Pros: "Wonderful Crew"
Cons: "The WiFi to work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours, Captain came on PA after boarding that it was technical. Gate agent were not good at giving updates prior to boarding"

Cons: "would be nice to have individual entertainment screen - instead it was above every few seats"

Pros: "Great crew very friendly"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "The food was pretty good Good choice of movies The staff were very good"
Cons: "My wife and grandson got bumped from first class to business. This was my grandsons first transatlantic in first class so I was livid. I booked the ticket with the most miles and had their seat assignment since March and was checked in with a boarding pass at first point of departure. Seeing your grandsons enjoy their or not is priceless"
Pros: "Short flight"

Pros: "The service from the flight attendants on the flight was absolutely amazing"
Pros: "Flight arrived safely"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Everything else"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "I miss friendly Southwest. Even the assigned seat is kit enough for me to use AA again. People smile at Southwest and seem to enjoy their job."
Pros: "Everything. I bought some souvenir magnets from the shop across from Starbucks near Gate C5(?). The gentleman working the register was very pleasant and was a welcome personality so early in the day. As a service member, I would like to thank him for his service. He was consistent in asking patrons whether they’d like to purchase a travel kit for the troops. A few patrons were abrupt and responded rudely but he maintained a level head and pressed on. Great attitude and professionalism. Thank you very much for your support! Also, I was able to get my Military discount applied towards my purchase which enabled me to purchase 1 travel kits for my fellow service members. A little goes a long way and when returning from deployments or coming home for R&R, it tends to be hectic and I, myself have often forgotten toiletries which I was able to get from the USO. The USO staff were also friendly and did an amazing job handling all of the personnel that funneled in, exhausted. Great attitudes and clean facilities. I would love to see an expansion to this USO location. They were full up this day, thank you for having this available to us! TSgt Angela Santiago Otero, USAF"
Cons: "This was an MD80 that had absolutely been ridden to death. I thought that AA was modernizing their fleet? This was a 30 year old plane."
Cons: "No audio in business. No working electric outlet."
Pros: "The staff did their best to compensate for the 4 1/2 hour departure delay, getting us Panera sandwiches and snacks."
Cons: "The 4 1/2 hour departure delay"
Cons: "As always, just too many damn people on the plane. Who are all of these people? What are they doing?"
Pros: "On time Attendants friendly Great service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I was stranded on the runway for nearly 2 hours no air it was awful!!!!"
Pros: "Everything ran on time, which was surprising because I've heard horror stories, but I was surprised. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The landing was ROUGH!"
Pros: "The flight to LA was fine, but the screen shot of the flight details didn't match what I purchased with a return date a day sooner. American Airlines blames Alaska airlines and they blame Kayak.. it's a blame game that only looks good for everyone but the consumer!"
Cons: "5hrs in LAX due to flight change without notification.. American Told us to go see Alaskan vise versa, but the conclusion was no seats were even available for the flight that was changed a day earlier.. Alaska Airlines solution: 2 additional days of travel and $700 per ticket x4 tickets. Finally after 5 hours of trying to figure it out some resolution to the mistake $500+ with additional stops. Ridiculous to say the least, I had to pay for their mistake"
Cons: "Not enough staff at the airport to check in all passengers for early departures"
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Bag of pretzels to eat. Just so cheap"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "Had to change flight again because I would not have made my connection. Also paying for wifi that barley worked!"
Cons: "The flight attendant continued to serve alcohol to passengers (employees of TomKats catering - they screamed it throughout the flight) that were drunk and belligerent. Her poor judgement, and their complete lack of control, made the flight miserable."
Cons: "Took off 30 mins late because of work form not being signed off???"
Cons: "Still at the Dam airport,7hr wait is a pain in the back!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Our flight to Nashville AND our flight back to Dallas were both delayed due to "maintenance". Each time was a delay of a couple of hours causing us to miss both of our original layover flights. As a result, we missed TWO very important business meetings that ended up costing us over $10,000! We were unable to provide paychecks to employees! After spending 2 entire days sitting in the airport waiting, we were offered a "food voucher" for $30, were advised to go pick up our luggage first, but they failed to mention we would be unable to get back through DFW airport security just to eat!! We had to take a taxi back to our hotel for over $100 and they didn't offer help with that or anything else. This airline is the worst!!! Unless there is significant compensation offered, I will do anything and everything to destroy their reputation further. I'm in the marketing industry and am very capable of getting the word out to millions. American Airlines... 9/11...Never Forget."
Cons: "A longer trip."
Pros: "Seats were amazing"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue so we missed our connection. Still in the states a day later trying to get to Paris."
Pros: "We got our money back."
Cons: "The brakes locked up on the taxi-way and we were taken off the plane after 2 hours and returned to the terminal. After 2 hours and lots of maybes the plane was towed back to the terminal where it was repaired and ready for reboarding. By then we had cancelled the flights for all 7 of us."
Cons: "There is not enough room in economy seats for a comfortable ride. I think there should be more free snack options on flights."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "On time. Efficient on and off plane. Didn’t hassle me about my carry on."
Cons: "The flight crew’s non challent attitude"
Pros: "There were too many people. It seems United is trying to put more seats to make more money. Giving more uncomfortable to passengers."
Cons: "The company forced me to put my luggage out of the plane, which I found strange. On my first flight in this roundtrip they let me have my carry-on without any problems. If they are going to have policies, they should be standards and they should stick to one thing instead of doing different things in different flights."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system not working."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "I try to fly with Lufthansa every time I travel to Turkey. They never fail to be great! Their service is very good. Their airplanes always seem to be new or kept up very well."
Pros: "The second lady that helped me, Michelle Reilly, was SUPER helpful. I am so thankful for her"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours, so I was unable to make my connecting flight. I am ending up landing in Portland about 5 hours after my original landing time. I will be missing part of a conference that I paid for. Major disappointment. The lady that helped me at first literally had me making an unnecessary stop, and arriving another 2 hours later, and I STILL would have missed my second flight due to the delay of the first fligh. Thankfully Michelle was very helpful, and switched me over to American Airlines"
Pros: "Plane travel is not my favorite, but I was impressed at how smoothly everything went. Had some decent coffee and a delicious caramel-filled cookie during flight that made me very happy. Loved having a female pilot and power receptacles in each row, too."
Cons: "I wish we didn't need the United app in order to use the Wi-Fi. Or, I wish that I had known in advance, since my tablet is Wi-Fi only. Minor thing."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight"
Pros: "smaller planes means for faster boarding and departure with less opportunity for frustrated people. Crew was prompt and friendly"
Cons: "I don't like the temperature inside the plane. It was very hot and was sweating the whole time."
Cons: "I'd rather use a different airline that allows you to watch the tv monitor on the back of the seats for free. Delta allowed it and they were great."
Cons: "United is terrible. That's all.9"
Pros: "The flight crew and staff in Nashville were great about the delay"
Cons: "That it was delayed but out of United control"
Pros: "Easy access on boarding"
Cons: "United took over the first 2 flights before final destination they try to charge for everything food , entertainment , etc etc with copa is different"

Pros: "Friendly staff, bags were received quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "40 min boarding delay, didn't have a phone charge at my seat."
Pros: "Finally getting to SEA"
Cons: "The Captain kept lying to the passengers why we were delaid ! Finally after 40 minutes sitting on the ramp he came on and apolized for telling us the wrong information but actually what happened was someone loaded all the luggage in the aft baggage compdartment incorrectly and they had to reload the the bags and move then to the forward compartment This certainty didn't give you a safe feeling knowing there ground crew didn't know ho to load there plane correctly! Another reason not to fly United Airlines! Everett Johnson, Bellevue Wash."
Pros: "Newer aircrafts"
Cons: "Delays delays"
Pros: "Nonstop BNA-SFO"
Cons: "United Economy Plus bulkhead was awful. I was seated in seat 7D - there was no bulkhead for me or middle seat - just a curtain. The screens and tiny pockets were only accessible over another passenger. The seat stuck out into the aisle so I was bumped by 200 other passengers at least once - not to mention the flight crew. Finally I had my emotional support dog with me and the crew told me I should. It be in that seat - the seat was assigned by the United Accessibikity Desk as a good one for a service animal - and I had zero choice in the matter. Baggage claim at SFO took over 45 minutes to start -I was home in San Francisco in only 20 minutes after getting my bag."
Pros: "Snack pack, Direct TV, more leg room"
Cons: "Flight was a little rocky on landing"
Pros: "The stroopwafel"
Cons: "Everything else. You charge less like Walmart and that's because everything is barely subpar. Stuck on the tarmac, again, for 2 hours with my 7 month old baby, barely tolerable employees, ripped my stroller bag and didn't want to pay for it.... I'm done with United! If you wanna be the best and not a bottom feeder try taking a look at southwest"
Cons: "Mechanical problems made flight late. Got to connecting gate 1 min before scheduled departure. Doors closed. Agent said they close doors 10 minutes before flight leaves, so I had no chance. United not overly helpful with alternate flights and arrangements. To make business mtgs, I asked to fly to alternate airport and drive in. United no help with rental car. Had to be very persistent to get a hotel room covered."
Pros: "Friendly prompt service"
Cons: "We were bumped and cancelled our reservation"
Pros: "I received my prepaid tickets, passed easily through the TSA checkpoint, and arrived safely on time at my final destination."
Cons: "N/A, no really, everything was enjoyable."
Cons: "Still sitting at the airport. Flight delayed :("
Pros: "The airline offers a pretty good entertainment selection if you have downloaded the app."
Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac for 3 hours waiting on repairs, the idea of purchasing airline food was annoying. I feel something should have been offered to the passengers as a reprieve."
Pros: "The option to control my personal tv."
Cons: "Bad service. I was ignored when I it was time to order a drink. The attendant scolded me for using my service button. I wouldn't have used it if they hadn't entirely skipped my row. There were three of us sitting debit cards in hand to order drinks. The same attendant was very rude to a family with a small child and a man trying to put away his baggage at the start of the flight. I will avoid united in the future if possible."
Pros: "I like the personal device entertainment system -- it really helps to pass the time"
Cons: "The flight was late by an hour. There was no food and the seats were okay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Didn't clearly explain my flight so I missed my flight !"

Cons: "The return flight was delayed three times. I am a man of average height and there was not enough legroom with my seat."
Pros: "I liked that the flight wasn't longer."
Cons: "There was a group of noisy, obnoxious women on the flight. They annoyed all the passengers around them, but the flight attendants never asked them to settle down. Then served them alcohol which made the situation worse."
Pros: "Not friendly personnel"
Cons: "Very rude flights were both delayed for not having a crew and problems with plane in the connection was very short time"
Pros: "That your seat is assigned"
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Pros: "Overall everything was well conducted. the seats were comfortable and the flight attendants cordial and welcoming."
Cons: "We were a bit late boarding then sat on the tarmac for an extended period of time only to be told that we were headed back to the gate for inspection. They didn't tell us up front what they were dealing with and there was an odd sound and for a few moments the smell of jet fuel wafted in. It was frightening, especailly since the noise persisted and there was no further information offered. When we were set to get back on the runway we were told it was a cargo door that was the issue and that all was well. I would have appreciatted being told what the nature of the problem was initially so that we could know if it was mechanical, engine related etd."
