Just worried about the flight connection between domestic & international in one of the most busy airports, but it turns out fine👍

Screens didn't work. No napkins. No soda. Lots of disappointments.

The passenger next to me was intoxicated and obnoxious. Seat 6B. He also never wore his mask the entire time.

Don’t seat 500lb people on regular seats. Miserable flight and will be asking for a refund. Horrendous sat on the floor half the flight

Pros: "Feeling Covid safe."
Cons: "More attention to those not wearing masks properly ."
Pros: "The entertainment options are good as well as free messaging on wifi"
Cons: "The boarding was late, the take off was late (weather), then arriving in rdu was delayed because the bridge was broken. All around, I’ve had better experiences but I’ve had much worse on SW."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."
Pros: "confortable and good service."
Pros: "Good crew, my seat did NOT recline."
Cons: "Plane was somewhat crowded."

Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The where very helpful"

Cons: "Not getting delayed for 20 minutes on the tarmac"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Pros: "The flight attendant from IAD to MSP called Bernadette was wonderful!"
Pros: "All aspects"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"
Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Seat was very cramped and I want able to be comfortable at all. I couldn't even sit back I the seat!"
Pros: "Very friendly and professional gate agent and flight attendant"
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: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."
Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."
Pros: "NOTHING AT ALL!!!!"
Cons: "everything 1st of all i didnt like the fact that the stuff could act so unprofessional and very disrespectful and not knowing what type of info to give that made me lose my flight and at the end they all told me they couldnt help me to get my flight or anything not even try.."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "I always feel that the flight attendants on Delta truly care about your flight experience. The smile, the attentiveness, the thoroughness and giving you the attention you desire."
Cons: "Ran out of bananas before they got to me, no big deal and it looks like Delta is getting healthier options every year."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."
Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"
Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Delta doesn't challenge anyone who attempts to pre-board. It's become somewhat of a joke. The plane was hot (717) with very poor ventilation. Was in 1st class and didn't get beverage service after boarding. Then, the plane sat on a remote taxiway another 30 minutes before takeoff, fully loaded, no A/C, and still no beverage service. Truly miserable hot and sweaty flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Great!

Flight got delayed made me miss my layover paid to not have a super long layover ended up having to sit for 6 hours waiting on a flight

Pros: "Was upgraded to first class on my return flights. Service was excellent seats were comfy. Benefit of being a card holder and flying only American Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The lines were too long for a 75 year old. I have recheck but did not get it with American. Security was madness, no one keeping social distance in spite of all your lovely signs. The staff giving directions on the moving table was unintelligible to me and so i left my iPad in my bag and had to spend 20 minutes tearing my bag apart . The gate was the only one not listened on the departure board and so i went the wrong way into the wrong Gs. There was no one around to check with, no one to ask and when i realized i went the wrong way i had to run back . At 75. I was the last one on board. No one helped me. The only friendly and helpful staff i met was Peter on the Chicago to LaCrosse flight. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Smooth as butter. Slept the whole way."
Cons: "Nothing could have improved it."
Cons: "After the flight was diverted due to Weather conditions I missed my connecting flight and American Airlines did a terrible job handling the changes and assisting their customers at DFW airport."
Pros: "Everything was easy"
Pros: "It was fine the next leg of the trip was cancelled"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seating too crowded"
Cons: "Consider removing seats to add more space per seat"
Pros: "That I was FINALLY able to get to my destination after a THREE AND HALF HOUR DELAY. Mechanical malfunctions, Get crew unable to find the pilots once the mechanical malfunction was corrected, sitting on the plane for an hour waiting for some "guy" to be located who went missing who was responsible for our weight to certified for flight. I didn't like anything."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "flight was on time!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."
Pros: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."
Pros: "Another customer allowed me to sit in the aisle seat rather than the assigned middle seat. That was much appreciated. And I enjoyed an movie during the flight. I like being able to choose what I want to watch and stream it on my own device."
Cons: "It was really cold on the airplane. I kept my jacket on for the entire flight. I’m typically warm natured, so it was unusually cold."
Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."
Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor flight. Staff kept the plane ridiculously warm the entire flight."
Pros: "Delayed on the runway but overall good and smooth"
Cons: "Flight service was ok"
Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."
Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"
Pros: "Everything else was great - including rest of crew"
Cons: "plane departure was delayed after boarding because the pilot hadn't arrived from local residence or hotel to SFO in time - as a result we sat on tarmac for half hour or more before departure AND because we arrived late we sat on tarmac for awhile waiting for an arrival gate to open at DCA"
Pros: "The aircraft was newer and the flight smooth. The pilot kept us updated on potential turbulence, which was comforting No one knew if Charlotte was going to get a gust from IRMA. The flight attendants were also friendly which isn't the case on some airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"
Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"
Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."
Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"
Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."
Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"
Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."
Cons: "2 days late"
Cons: "Didn't even get on the flight due to delay out of KSMF and I talked to the ticket lady and this has been happening very regularly due to runway construction in Phoenix. Yet the airline won't let you know or change the schedules they just take your money knowing they will likely not be able to deliver the desired product."
Cons: "They were out of snacks. A little thing but got under my skin as unprofessional."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."
Pros: "Non-stop and comfort"
Cons: "No snacks at all :("
Pros: "The tv in the seat back"
Cons: "The lack of knowledge and carding of the desk staff i was so looking forward to this vacation and it ended in nightmare 2 missed connections, 3+ hours added driving for my ride home and getting home at 3:30am or later whwn I would have been home at 11:00 luggage sent on with out me on the flight all in all very disappointing"
Cons: "4 hr. Layover"
Cons: "A few crew members was rude"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to first class"
Cons: "Rude flight attendance werent prompt"

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Pros: "Crew were polite"
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
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."
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: "The crew was incredible"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
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: "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."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
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: "Helpful and courteous crew"
Cons: "N/a"
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."
Pros: "Timely."
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."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
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."
Pros: "BA was great especially in JFK"
Cons: "Booked through Kayak and my mums ticket was voided so couldn't board had to buy her a new ticket"
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: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Gold muffin."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence so only business class got drinks does not make sense how is it that turbulence only stops economic people from getting drinks."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "Not able to connect to airplane WiFi"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Nice crew"
Cons: "The first class flight attendant didn’t smile a single time. We weren’t in first class but it was noticeable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"
Pros: "Nothing, worst airline ever"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"
Pros: "On time, smooth"
Cons: "Arriving in LAX with no gate to pull up to. When will United fix this decades-long defficiency?"
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours."
Cons: "I can't believe how cramped the seats are. I am under 5 feet tall, and am average weight, and I had no room to spare."
Cons: "The fact that you have to download an app to get any kind of entertainment on United is a bit ridiculous. Plus the food offerings are poor at best."
Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"
Cons: "There was an odor of raw sewage the entire flight. Myself and my son were feeling ill by the time the flight was over."
Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"
Cons: "I was seated next to an obese man who was racist and homophobic, and when I asked the flight attendant if I could move to the empty seat next to me because he was taking up a chunk of my seat, I was told “no” because I am not a united mileage plus member. not so nice! If i pay for an aisle seat I expect to be able to “sit” in the whole seat (and not to mention free from hatred)"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have no customer service."
Pros: "upgrade"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, crew rude to other passengers"
Pros: "Friendly crew and great pilot!"
Cons: "Not enough leg space!"
Cons: "Early morning flight and the crew ran out food before they got to row 12."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None for this flight."
Cons: "No one told us at the gate I was told to go to included on my ticket that it had been changed. I almost missed my flight if I had not asked an assistant at another gate. Then when I got to the correct gate I asked that assistant why there was no announcement of the change. He proceeded to tell me I didn't need to yell at him. That was unprofessional, disrepectful, and bottom line rudeness."
Cons: "Late departing, crew not friendly, having take tiny plane to my destination...man next to me smalled sooo bad I had to turn my face into window to not get sick.not airline fault of course. Landed in Denver at one gate toward end of concourse and second plane s gate not listed anywhere. No board or person knew where. Found it was to be entire other end..pilot mumbled when talking not able understand his fast mumble."
Pros: "Great stewardess"
Cons: "Entirely too hot in the plane"
Pros: "I liked nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I was not able to board the fist flight because i got there one hour before the flight left. I drove 2 hours to catch my second plane and because i did that my entire ticket was cancel forcing me to pay $341.00 to purchase another ticket"
Cons: "Card reader for direct tv didn't work"
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant, flights were on time, no baggage lost, very little turbulence."
Cons: "Flight is delayed wonder why I paid for my luggage and my two small suit case not even 25 kilos each , thought limit is 50?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 minutes past when they began to board no effort to try to help with getting on or another flight. Had plenty of time to get through security no call no assistance to find another flight NOTHING! No care to help."
Pros: "Late boarding, ZERO ENTERTAINMENT when you can pay the same price for American that provides television, old uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and attentive"
Pros: "This portion of my journey was fine."
Cons: "I have zero idea why your entertainment set up wont work on android devices. that sucked!"
Pros: "The entire service from boarding to flying was efficient and punctual."
Cons: "The snacks and no beverage, however I understand the flight was super short."
Pros: "On time departures and early arrivals"
Cons: "We were delayed"
Pros: "I was nursing a cold and the staff was offering me drinks and blanket."
Cons: "Departure was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "Connecting could hardly be any easier than at DEN--you get off your plane and you turn right or you turn left. No need to find a map of the airport; no need to figure out whether walking or taking the "trA'Am" would be faster; no need to catch a bus or go through security; just one (long) concourse."
Cons: "While connecting at DEN is easy, I wish there were more outlets for recharging my phone on the B concourse (like WN has on the C concourse). I wouldn't have gotten too much of a boost, though, as both of my flights were on time."
Pros: "The size of a first class seat"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not function properly. Seat cushions were worn out. The customer service representative was not able to complete my check in for the international segment."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Have to pay for movies/ shows"
Cons: "Three rolling delays in departure, and we landed the ground crew couldn't find stairs for us to deplane. Waited 30-minutes til we finally used the plane's stairs. Sigh- just makes one wonder about their commitment to getting flight ops right..."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "2 hour delay and missing my connection"
Pros: "The flight & crew were great"
Cons: "A cookie? C'mon man. I couldn't download the United app & didn't know I had to."
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Cons: "The man who reprinted my boarding pass after I had left no e at security was extremely rude. I also found it ridiculous that I was charged to check my bag at the gate because it was about a half inch longer than the bin. Yes I understand there are size limits on carry on luggage but the plane was not even half full and the bag was clearly a standard carry on size. If anything, I should have been permitted to gate check the bag."
Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "Space between aeats"
Pros: "I can't really rate the food or entertainment. The flight was a red-eye so I slept. However, I slept well in First Class after upgrading several hours prior to take off."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour 30 minutes late taking off."
Pros: "Routine"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Airline staff was very friendly."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was almost unbearably hot throughout the entire flight. And to give some perspective: I'm someone who is usually always cold on airplanes and typically not a fan of a/c. And I wore shorts & a t-shirt on the plane which I was nervous about doing because like I said, I'm always cold, but thank goodness I did for that flight."
Cons: "Landing delay due to another United planes mechanical issues, terrible follow up customer service. Worst airline out there."
Cons: "we were an hour late"
