Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"

Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"
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: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and had great personality. They anticipated any needs we had."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "1.5 hour delay...no reason given!"
Pros: "The crew served things exactly as scheduled. They went out of their way to help passengers individually."
Cons: "The seats are a bit cramped for long international flights."
Pros: "New plane, video in every seat"
Cons: "Organizing boarding better. Confusion in rules."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Our seats were assigned at the gate. Somehow we were given the comfort + seats. Very nice! Thank you!"
Pros: "The snack between two meals"
Cons: "The main dish of meal, Tooth brush"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Business aisles are one way only, very impractical. Bathrooms are tiny unlike 777 and the seats are not good, i dislike the narrow feel of the feet well and there is noooo storage for shoes or amything else..what fail. And the door thing is a joke. I will make zero effort to fly this equipment...777 is the best after loosing the 747."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Very small plane"
Pros: "New plane with great entertainment arrived 30 mins early"
Pros: "Baggage came quickly. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The schedule was not good and I was needed to take later flight than I ordered."
Pros: "Some of the cabin attendants were friendly and helpful. Others not so much."
Cons: "Even in "world business class" the pods are very small and cramped and there is no room to put a carry on bag even something as small as a headphone box. Also the business class bathroom was very small, very disgustingly dirty when we boarded (someone tried to clean it a bit) and dirty and small throughout the flight. The bathroom does not have ventilation and the toilet basically does not have any liquid for flushing!"
Pros: "Entertainment available"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "7 hours delayed. Poor front desk worker, nice flight attendants!"
Pros: "Good snack selection, plane departed on time, no issues."
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "The boarding was really crowded and didnt seem organized."
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Great flight attendant by the name of Jeff..super courteous...friendly..not at all presumptuous! Great selection of “ newer” movies"
Cons: "Prices they charge for snacks."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."
Pros: "Punctual departures. Adequate overheard space."
Cons: "Food was mediocre for a 5-6 hour flight. I expected a little bit more."
Pros: "What can I say...I love Delta!"
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: "I was able to watch TV on my way to my destination."
Cons: "I upgraded for the cabin Round trip and when I flew back from my destination I didn't have the same good experience. I did not have the TV flying back. The plane was too rocky one minute going smooth then out of no where it into high speed. The plane was shaky."
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."
Pros: "The crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was completely down for the entire flight."
Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."
Pros: "Being able to watch a movie on the plane"
Cons: "Packed..."
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: "Check in, gate, and plane staff all friendly and efficient. Plane clean and flight on time. Overhead space with full plane was no problem. Service inflight was quick and cheerful."
Cons: "Drop off in San Antonio always a mess. Traffic delays driving up to drop off. Security check 20 minute with no pre approval. Seats crowded. Snack choices predictable."
Pros: "The stewards/stewardess were very helpful. The trip was very pleasant."
Cons: "Great customer service from all staff. Mannerisms, snacks, and safety precautions."
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "Gate agents kept us very informed and provided snacks."
Cons: "2-hour long delay"
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."
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
Pros: "It's hard for me to write this review as the first 4.5 hour leg was incredible. Staff was very friendly and did a great job. Otherwise, the equipment was old and dated. Good thing it's only an hour-ish flight."
Cons: "Old plane, hard seats designed for humans less than 3 years old."
Cons: "The "Delta Comfort" seats were not comfortable: the armrest didn't raise, so the seats were narrow. The handle of our suitcase got broken."
Cons: "Due to last minute and absurd changes made to my itinerary by Delta without my knowledge, I was not on this flight."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Flight left late; and we were the first Flight fromTallahassee. I missed the morning convention meetings."
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."

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

Pros: "I liked that the plane didn’t crash!"
Cons: "I don’t know, maybe having FOOD ON THE FLIGHT ACROSS THE COUNTRY INSTEAD OF JUST CANDY?"
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: "Boarding before scheduled time was not pre announced, seats lack legroom, unlikely to choose United again"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, so taking off would have been an improvement."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "My luggage got soaked in the rain. No gluten free snack options."
Pros: "The price was unreal so I had to jump on this, I was able to get on and off with my backpack no problem. The flights were good, captains were very communicative about times, expectations and when turbulence was present."
Cons: "The check in had to be done in person because of the need to check my bag size, I felt a little insulted that I would have to be checked on my honesty. When I got to the check in it was like watching a special forces team measuring and prodding peoples bags to get them in to the little box even when the shapes were the reason they couldn't fit, not the size of the bags. I literally watched someone fit their bag and the attendant take it out and make it misshaped for the box and show how it didn't slide in. I had no issues with my luggage, but that sucked to watch happen to others. The food and drinks came about 10 minutes before the plane landed."
Pros: "On time, pleasant crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connecting flight. Second flight delayed missed connecting flight. Overnight in airport expected unless united pays for hotel. Absolutely miserable. Paid 430$ one way for a 25 hour flight. Will never fly United again."
Cons: "P"
Cons: "entertainment was intermittent"
Pros: "friendliness"
Cons: "Ride was bumpy"
Cons: "Cramped"
Cons: "Same as the above"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Great staff and breakfast was very refreshing. Will definitely fly with United again."
Cons: "Na"
Cons: "Pretty good. I'd fly united agsin."
Pros: "Nothing, the fact that they were my membership partner for milege"
Cons: "Food was bad, boarding process sucks , seat sucks for first class, no free wifi , old dated devices , was not offer personal device on first class, crew seem mad all the time"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. The cabin crew was ok"
Cons: "Tired old aircraft equipment. Bathrooms that need attention!"
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."
Pros: "Nice Airplane and good experience on United Domestic flights. International is another story! It seems many of the senior flight attendants think the passengers are there to serve them vs. the reverse."
Cons: "No complaints about domestic flights. United gets good marks here."
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."
Pros: "The flight was just another flight, crew was speedy, and proficient."
Cons: "The seating is way too compact. Me and my neighbor we're hitting elbows the entire time."
Cons: "Plane seating was tight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."
Pros: "The Embraer ERJ-170 has comfortable seats!"
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: "It was cancelled in the early AM, due to equipment failure"
Pros: "Speed and staff. Plane clean. Wife needs help and it was always there. Land people good as well."
Cons: "No internet or movies."
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: "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."
Pros: "Nothing flight got canceled and they couldn't even get me out the same day .. Due to there Maintnence issue most horrible expierence"
Cons: "Everything ruined my boyfriends bday with there Maintnence problem"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was oversold so they booked another flight on American that still hasn't even left Dallas! Should have arrived by now."
Pros: "The service was outstanding. There was a lot of space between the seats. A lot of movies to choose and the best part you don't have to pay for it. Nothing like other airlines. This is the best by far!"
Cons: "The wifi onboard was broken. There were no t.v. sets to watch."
Pros: "They have a snack and a drink on such a short flight."
Cons: "No leg room or entertainment. Receiving baggage after the flight took 15 min (carry-on baggage)"
Cons: "Flight delayed and I had to literally run to the next flight"
Pros: "Everything! My grandparents needed special assistance with wheelchair and the crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for nearly 1 hour."
