Airline reviews

Everything went pretty smoothly: from check-in to boarding to baggage pick-up at the destination (Atlanta). The plain was clean and in great condition. The flight crew and ground staff were excellent. I just wish Delta and other airlines increased leg room in coach. But I guess that will not happen without a mandate from the government.

Everything went pretty smoothly: from check-in to boarding to baggage pick-up at the destination (Atlanta). The plain was clean and in great condition. The flight crew and ground staff were excellent. I just wish Delta and other airlines increased leg room in coach. But I guess that will not happen without a mandate from the government.

Flight did not depart due to the weather! Was a stuff around plus the aircraft did not have enough fuel

The landing was incredibly rough. I thought we were going to roll over at one point. Even coming into the landing was incredibly rocky. The passenger beside me said they make that flight all the time and that was the hardest landing they ever experienced.

Timelessness could improve greatly. And for a coast to coast flight, the food options were very limited in my opinion (goldfish, 1-pop, and only water after that).

Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"
Cons: "Given we left at 7:15 am, I would’ve liked some food options instead of biscuits and peanuts"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly."
Cons: "I wasn't able to connect my ipad to the free wifi for any of my four flights."
Cons: "Well if my future father in law was on the flight it would have been wonderful, but he passed away July 7th, and I did get refunded, and we are mourning his loss and keep getting notifications about the flight and emails which makes it very difficult mentally. So it would be nice if Delta would get their process of refunds especially when it's a death to maybe not get notified. I was the one that purchased the tickets for him in April."
Cons: "Older plane so the entertainment system was dated and the touch screen didn’t work for me in certain areas, but otherwise it was a great flight. Efficient customs in Minneapolis as well!"
Pros: "Movies and usb charging"
Cons: "4 hour flight and all we get is a cookie?"
Pros: "Flight was fina s far as air travel goes today. If they are forcing taller people to pay extra for comfort they have succeeded as in the future I will have to look into "comfort plus. I am not large, 6'1" 180# and my knees were tight to the seat in front with my back tight into the seat. Not a great way to spend 4 hours!!!"
Cons: "Extra personal space and food that isn't served frozen would be nice!"
Pros: "Seat was decent and only a $10 upgrade. Worth it!"
Cons: "Wasn’t clear what boarding group was up. I don’t usually fly delta so maybe I’m just not used to the system but something on the video screen at the gate saying where they were in boarding would have helped. I wasn’t the only one that seemed lost."
Cons: "If there could have been some sort of service at DTW to take customers to the gate of their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "WiFi on board."
Pros: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "They let me sleep."
Pros: "How professional everyone was"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "7 hours delayed. Poor front desk worker, nice flight attendants!"
Pros: "Good snack selection, plane departed on time, no issues."
Pros: "Everything, smooth flight with an entertaining crew."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Best Delta flight so far."
Pros: "Quick, safe flight. Very good pilot."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not work at all during the 2.5 hour flight. Was very disappointed."
Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Pros: "Seat back movies Staff was attentive and patient with my sick teen daughter."
Cons: "Old plane with no seat back entertainment on one leg of journey."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Pros: "None of it!! Poor selection"
Cons: "All of it. Again poor selection"
Pros: "Nice service , but flight was delayed , but that's not Delta dakut as it was weather related"
Cons: "Nice sercixe and crew and generous with snacks and water"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Food above average. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Delta is not the only airline to have planes with the new seat configurations in First Class but they are a big disappointment for tall passengers and couples who enjoy traveling together and cannot even carry on a comfortable conversation on a 15-hour flight."
Pros: "on time, clean, prompt. no problem."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "My flight was delayed 40 minutes in Detroit after a 3 hour lay over we boarded the plane. Then 45 minutes into the flight they said the landing gear light came on and they would be going back to change plans. My mother with Lymes disease was waiting 3 hours in Providence supposed to arrive a 11:50 instead 2:50am we were so tired missed a day of vacation."
Pros: "The stewards/stewardess were very helpful. The trip was very pleasant."
Cons: "Great customer service from all staff. Mannerisms, snacks, and safety precautions."
Pros: "Staff was amazing! Very friendly and accommodating. We were traveling with a two-year-old and they moved us to first class to give extra room for the car seat."
Cons: "Lots of turbulents. The plane was smaller so they asked me to check in my carry-on as we were boarding. No issues getting my luggage back."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly; service was good Trip was pleasant Plane was clean and comfortable."
Pros: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Always a delay with Delta"
Pros: "I liked that the security line experiences very mellow, the staff all around was very friendly and nice, the TV's were great and they had free blankets and headsets. It was a very relaxing experience."
Cons: "thought the cabin could have had more heat"
Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."
Pros: "Very clean aircrafts"
Cons: "Don't like how you have to pay extra to pick your seat. This is something that budget airlines usually do, so I was surprised Delta did this. I was unable to sit with my boyfriend, because we elected not to pay additional fees to pick our seats, yet there were many open seats on our plane. I would choose United over Delta, as they don't force you to pay extra to sit with those you are traveling with."
Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was on-time and most often overlooked (but most important) we got there safely."
Cons: "The seat on this 737-800 was uncomfortably narrow. This was likely due to the table-tray being in the seat armrest. I had to remove everything from my side pants pockets and even then was not particularly comfortable. This is particularly annoying because I usually avoid this by flying comfort plus. However, on this itinerary, Delta would not allow me to give them money for Comfort plus, because it was a domestic leg on an itinerary including stops in Asia. Such a baffling policy!?!?"
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."
Cons: "With only one gate attendant, boarding was slow and unorganized."
Pros: "First flight was not sold out which allowed me to change seats"
Pros: "While the process was confusing, the staff were quite pleasant and actually seemed to enjoy their job."
Cons: "The boarding process is very confusing. There are so many different boarding priorities and programs, it is difficult to know where you are in the boarding process. Even if you have a ticket labeled as Group 1, you may still be one of the last boarded because of all the different programs that have priority over you. Would be better to limit the advance boarding to people who need extra help and a single program. This leads to the question, why are there so many different programs? Wouldn't it be easier to have a single loyalty program? If you don't qualify for advance boarding because you did not purchase a first class seat, or you haven't reached the advance boarding requirements, you don't qualify. Let's start thinking about the customer again, and less on the profit margin. How would one of your executives feel if they had a boarding Group 2 and 85% of the plane was already boarded by the time your group was called, thereby limiting the space for your correct size carry-on? One more thing that would be beneficial, enforce the size limit for carry-on luggage. I have been to airports that limit the size with a box on the x-ray machine so you can not even get an oversized piece of luggage through security. Just one idea for the industry."
Pros: "Delayed flight from SRQ to ATL with tarmac delay of 1 hour. An FA reconfigured the in-seat entertainment systems to make all movies free to pass the time."
Cons: "Why board if you know there's a weather-related ground stop at ATL? I'd rather have waited out the delay in the terminal at SRQ than sit on the plane. At least then I could get something for breakfast; this was a flight scheduled for the butt crack of dawn."
Pros: "First checked bag free."

The vegetarian curry was very good. Would be better to have a smoother way to get boarding passes.

Everything was okay, Poor drink selection

No priority boarding or dedicated checkin for premium economy Plane over heated Terrible food — stale dessert No snacks available Drink glasses minuscule Will avoid Lufthansa flights in future. Literally the worst value ever.

Food was not good and it was not enough for a 9:45 mins flight

The boarding process and flight were very easy and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and kind—they obviously enjoy their work. My only recommendation for improvement is the website and application. It is very confusing to navigate and could be improved with UX in mind.

It's was canceled

Connecting flight was cancelled. No ability to contact anyone from customer service on Kayak or Chatdeals side. Still stranded. SO NOT GREAT EXPERIENCE USING YOUR SERVICE

Cons: "It was good enough."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "There was loud, annoying static over the intercom off and on."
Cons: "Arctic char looked like it really was salmon. Need better selection of contemporary movies. When The Third Man is the most attractive alternative it's not so great. Would like to have seen the attendants more pro-active in asking about beverages and passing out snacks, fruit, etc. Saw just the water, orange juice and apple juice trays being carried around."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"
Cons: "They told us there were no earbuds so recommended using our own. Our children had left theirs at home so they ran to get a $20 pair nearby. But the the plane DID have the buds; what we did not have were blankets — the crew said none were to be had."
Pros: "Deni, our flight attendant, was most attentive, giving Robert, who is legally blind, assistance with safety features if needed, one on one as we were seated."
Cons: "You can’t go wrong with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "Superb flight attendants"
Cons: "Never made the flight because my first flight was delayed."
Pros: "The crew was intuitive and caring. Very nice and polite"
Cons: "The is no good reason why we had to wait 1 hour in line for security as only two Security booth are active. I believe there is a room to increase the number of security mabhines and personal in that specific gate"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Friendly staff!!!"
Cons: "All good!!"
Pros: "United/ LH first called it a mechanical delay....we waited....then the weather caused this mini plane not to take off....long story short...we had to stay in a hotel...nobody gave us a voucher...our helped us with anything....very poor service"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."
Pros: "Easy. Clean. Friendly. Helpful with food allergies concerns."
Cons: "That we had to pay extra fee to reserve our seats"
Pros: "On time flight with no problems"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats so hard to sleep during flight"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "I loved the personal screen with activities, cleanliness, and the friendliness of the staff! It’s probably my new favorite airline"
Pros: "Great Seats / Bedding Excellent Drinks Excellent Service Delicious Food."
Cons: "Boarding was a Zoo. No real First Class announcement; confusion of which line was Business, First, or Economy, no clear announcements. This is the 2nd time this is happened in a row. Not sure why. Movie Choices were pretty poor, but TV series made up for it."
Pros: "Everything!!"
Cons: "Me starting to get sick!"
Pros: "Everything!! Flight was great!!"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Cons: "The vegan meal. No airline appears to know how to make a healthy and tasty meal."
Pros: "Roomy seats, excellent service!"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like!"
Cons: "The person at the Swiss/Lufthansa front desk, some Mohamed guy, was very rude when he did my check in"
Cons: "The legroom was awful, especially for a nine-hour flight. The video screen kept rebooting."
Pros: "The crew was nice and they took good care of us. The flight is really short and there isn't much time for anything."
Cons: "The seats are becoming smaller and smaller, and more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent service. Everybody from the crew up had smile. Very good atmosphere. I would definitely fly with up guts again"
Cons: "I'm 6'2 230 seat was tight for me but that is it"
Pros: "Good gate agent, legroom was actually okay."
Cons: "Missing assigned flight (see previous flight comments), lack of crew service"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Great job in general"
Cons: "The B747 is big and takes longer to board and longer to get your bag. WIFI is expensive at about $19. Seats are cramped or that's what I felt."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No food/snacks after a long first flight. At first it looked like we were in first class, then they decided to move it a few rows up after everyone was seated."
Pros: "Nothing horrible experience"
Cons: "Staff in Los Angeles, service non existent in Greece no entertainment for 11 hours no tablets available"
Pros: "Lufthansa - The best."
Pros: "On time for all legs"
Cons: "4 hour lay over in Toronto"
Pros: "Overall great experience!"
Pros: "Clean and rasy"

Amsterdam as a hub is a mess, do not use Amsterdam and KLM as a hub to European cities unless you want to miss your flight.

To charge $39 for a list and found help ticket is extortion—will they find my item for that price?

When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.

Better food more confortable seats.

They canceled our flights but the flight went on anyway.

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Not the first time we have experienced defective entertainment system on this trip. It should be upgraded.

Never booked this flight

Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Baggage checkin & flight boarding was slow & disorganized."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Cons: "Larger meals."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Cons: "Delayed!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Pros: "Average service and food quality"
Cons: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ahead of time. Baggage arrived very promptly. Seats comfortable."
Cons: "Very limited movie choices on inflight entertainment. Seatbelt short, unable to keep secured except sitting straight in seat. No food which is now typical most domestic flights 4 hours or less."

Flight was cancelled and the only reschedule time they could manage was the next day at 830pm. No advanced warning or viable options to choose from. Absolutely horrible experience spending 12 hours in an airport trying to get home.

Kayak is awesome! AA ran late on my return by about an hour

No TVs. One little cookie package for snack. Maybe something bigger next time. Plus I expected a little more in first class.

Pros: "Excellent crew staff helping elderly handicapped man. Thank you from Team Trump."
Cons: "Snack would have been nice. Haven’t eaten since 6am before we left providence"
Cons: "Both flights were overbooked. Social distancing doesn’t apply to American Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Better plane, better notice on delays, not only to weather"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent, flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing for this flight."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Between mechanical, weather, lightning, fueling/routing delays; I have been pushed back at least 4 hours from my original arrival time at my final destination."
Cons: "More leg room, more attentive to customers with disabilities"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 1/2 hrs causing missed meetings"
Pros: "Flying out around bad weather; lucky we got out in time. Pilot did a reasonable job keeping passengers up to speed on what was happening. Flight attendants were friendly and respectful. CRJ-900 leather seats are more comfortable than your average economy seat."
Cons: "In flight wifi didn't work the whole trip. Plane was a sauna getting in and on the ramp, air conditioning wasn't working on the ground. Boarding took FOREVER with some less than competent wheelchair agents (I think)."
Pros: "They have Wow Bao in the airport."
Cons: "Being allowed to fly on the plane."
Cons: "Delayed more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Delayed rerouted delayed again horrible airline this is why I stopped flying American"
Cons: "It would’ve been nice if we made it to fort Meyers!"
Pros: "The check-in was pleasant. I was treated politely, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "People at the gate while boarding were quite rude."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice and tried to make our long delay tolerable"
Cons: "Why do you board a flight when the airport has grounded takeoffs? Just to meet some stupid metric for on-time departures, you make 100 people sit in the plane for 2 hrs, when you could have just let them wait to board. Misery."
Pros: "Flight attendant was great, plane was comfortable and clean"
Cons: "No WiFi, it was delayed, bags came off a different belt so we didn’t find them for 30 minutes... but at least we found them"
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: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Seatbelt was far too short for someone plus sized."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Too little legroom."
Cons: "Overhead bins were full before my seat, so bag had to go in one behind me and it was a disaster trying to get it when it was time to get off the plane"
Pros: "No problems, arrived early"
Pros: "Food wash pretty good"
Pros: "Things were all right on schedule and the plane was very updated and clean. I was thrilled with the movie selections and the food was better than average plane food."
Cons: "Bathrooms were in rough shape, would have liked to see those serviced in-flight so those of us using the space to do night-time routines like brushing our teeth and washing faces didn't have to deal with someone else's mess."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "small jetcraft"
Pros: "No breakfast"
Pros: "Take-off and landing were smooth."

Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."
Cons: "Horrible - Flight was diverted to IAD for no legitimate reason. Rebooked out of DCA with no travel vouchers. Most likely never booking with American Airlines again."
Cons: "Horrible long delays."
Pros: "Service was excellent! Captain and crew were amazing! Flight was comfortable and clean! Food could be improved a little. Arrived a head of schedule! Yippee!!"

Pros: "Crew was good. Relatively quick flight. Plane was not crowded, up to date plane."
Cons: "Food was not very good.. but typical airline fare. Japanese airlines do better food."
Pros: "Flight departed on time.our trip out there was disappointing , causing us to get there very late costing us money."
Cons: "Airline did not notify us that as of 10-15-16 the Samsung Note 7 phone could not be bought on the plane. Because my sister Phillip Mae had a meeting at 10am in Greensboro, N.C. she was forced to give her phone to American Airline."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Pros: "Treated like a person not a ticket"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The food was ample and delicious. The stewardess was very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I had a very difficult time adjusting my reclining seat. It gave new meaning to physical comedy. Anothers' seat locked up all together and an attendant had to play with it for a long time to get it to an upright position. Another woman's phone slipped back under the cushion and she had a most difficult time retrieving it."
Pros: "No complaints"
Cons: "It's was good"
Pros: "The onboard crew was amazing. No problems there. The flight was decent."
Cons: "Both ways I had delayed trips. On my way back my first flight was running late. So arriving at my connecting airport I literally had to RUN clear across be airport and the attendant tells me I was a "no show". So I would have to wait and go on a different flight. The plane was still there. It was 25 minutes before take off time. And she rerouted me onto a different aircraft in which I had to RUN to the other side of the airport again. Only to find out this flight was delayed for 45 minutes. In which adding on to me already delayed flight. I understand some things are out of everyone's control. But the lady made me feel like I was just looking around in shops instead of being where I needed. Never again."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Delayed flight No food/drink service offered"
Cons: "My son and I were scheduled to leave Providence to Philadelphia on Monday at 6:05. Flight went through a series of delays until we were finally informed that our flight would not make the flight departing Philly to SF. Rather than fly to Philly during the DNC, we decided to SPEND ANOTHER NIGHT IN PROVIDENCE and take the flight out the next day. This part of the trip caused me to lose a day of work and spend more money on a hotel and meals. This was very poor planning on your part since there were flights flying in and out of both places, but your company was short one aircraft that would have gotten my son and I home on time!!! This was my last flight on American Airlines and I will be sure to spread the word to my friends and family that you have become too unreliable!!"

PlusPoints are useless if seats are so rarely available.

Apart from the delays in terms of departure times, the airline experience was so bad, given the medical incident from a passenger sitting at the back of the plane. I was so close to it, and was utterly disappointed by the failure of the cabin crew to control passengers from overcrowding the sick passenger and allow the crew to administer the necessary medical intervention. It all amounted to compromised safety at 30000 feet, and seriously more training on the part of the airline is required in this regard. The other issue I realised is lack of cleanliness and care on the part of cabin staff, with one lady spilling food next to where I was sitting and ignoring the incident completely. I had to ask another to intervene and for which only superficial help was rendered. This is not what I expected, but this is what I got and speaks volumes to a cabin crew which is all female, mature/elderly, and expected to be more hands on to problems of this nature. The food is terrible in economy class, with options very limited. I opted for chicken, but did not know that it had curry in it, so I could not eat my meal further, and so no need to ask for the vegetarian option.

They canceled the flight and didn’t tell me. Neither did you.

Trip delayed 6 hours and no help from united to try to find alternatives.

Easy boarding; attentive staff.

United is on par with Spirit only l pay 4 times the amount

Cons: "I don’t know, maybe having FOOD ON THE FLIGHT ACROSS THE COUNTRY INSTEAD OF JUST CANDY?"
Pros: "Very well-run flight. Crew was on top of everything. Very cheery."
Pros: "NOTHING!! I had to book them another flight thru another airline, because they had a delayed stating weather issues when it was nice and sunny so they couldn't make it on time. I will never trust United Airlines not for myself or any on my family members, nobody period!"
Cons: "Flight be on time, 4 hrs late"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Crew flight attendant was nice the whole trip. Other places they aren't always so warm or nice when you leave. Flight was pretty."

Pros: "f"
Cons: "ilm didn't work. programs limited technology outdated. staffed stressed. Delayed without apology. Worst flight for as long as I can remember."
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: "Free streaming IFE is nice. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "3 independent instrument failures made us 2 hours late and I missed my connection."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice. She tried to let one particular person off plane first so that he could run to catch his connecting flight"
Cons: "The gate people were horrible at explaining the delays and then trying to set up alternatives. Quick tip: offering "free water" when your flight is delayed 1.5hrs so several people will miss their flights is not enough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours causing me to miss my connecting flight to Indianapolis. Went to the service desk to re-book, and nothing could be done to get me out in time. Customer service was not great. I was flying to see my daughter graduate, and the only time they could get me out was when the graduation started. No hotel vouchers were given for the delay either, so the airport bench ended up being the bed. So I ended up being stranded in Newark for an additional 8 hours to just miss her graduation."
Cons: "Plane seating was tight"
Pros: "I received an unexpected free upgrade to first class. Two thumbs up!"
Cons: "No complaints. Every aspect of the flight met or exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "One hour delay, no microphone to hear what the desk staff was actually announcing, desk staff were also completely unprofessional. Made my connecting flight by less than a minute thanks to SPRINTING through the airport because of the delay - a less able bodied person would not have made it. Overall ridiculous and dissappointing"
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: "Never gave me the option to select seat."
Cons: "It was cancelled in the early AM, due to equipment failure"
Pros: "Plane was filthy & disgusting! I asked the stewardess for a towel to wipe down my table that was covered in sticky gunk, she just handed me a Wet One. Passengers table next to me was the same. My checked was only 3 lb over the 50 lb limit. United actually made me take 3 pairs of dirty jeans out & carry them with me in a Target shopping bag! Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight slept through the flight"
Cons: "The delay of the flight"
Pros: "better seats than in the past"
Cons: "flight attendants fighting with a passenger"
Pros: "Early arrivals"
Cons: "On the express smaller planes you have to gate check your rollarboard suitcase which is fine but if your in first class they dont have a separate tag from economy class so i got my bag last even tho i was in first."
Pros: "Econ Plus was nice. Flight was fine."
Cons: "GA called for all "people with disabilities" to board first. How about simply asking for people who need a little extra time...PWD's is a bit of a label that doesn't work for me. While we were boarding the white female FA made a snide comment that maybe passengers should not bring more than one bag. She was also rude to the other FA."
