I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Need nice tea"

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, wide space between raws, smooth takeoff and landing, friendly Crew, good food, crew offered great service, from time to time offer drink and appetizers. We have come such a long distance comfort and fun."

Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"

Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."

Pros: "Food good"

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."

Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines,"

Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was awesome trying to make me everyone that was in the same area with baby crying as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Baby cried for 8 hrs out of a 13hr flight it was horrible."

Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."

Pros: "Easy booking, seat availability, massive music library."
Cons: "Price,"

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Pros: "Flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew, food and comfort. Taken out from flight no reason and harassed by land crew by not giving any flight for 24 hours with one baby and one child. No food offered for 8 hours. Not happy at all"

Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."

Pros: "Entertainment was top notch. Wasn't bored"
Cons: "Food could be less processed / more drink service"

Pros: "A lot of space under the seats, good food and beverage."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that some passengers can get drunk during the flight and that they can drink as much alcohol as they can. On the road behind me there were three Arabic guys who were really loud, noisy and impolite during the whole flight. One of them was constantly punching my seat the whole flight and even when I asked him politely to stop he didn't. Instead, he smiled at my face. I told the stewardess about that, but she also didn't do anything. She continued bringing them beers. The floor under their feet was full of empty beer cans. They had at least 20 cans of beer, and after that some wine. I think you should put some restrictions on the allowed alcohol amount per passenger. Wifi is never working!"

Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Old plane. Uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "The crew were nice, entertainment was very good"
Cons: "The Delhi staff were very rude, the baggage allowance was inconsistent in terms of inbound and outbound flights, was excessively charged!"

Pros: "Excellent service by cabin crew especially Wail"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Superior customer service"

Pros: "Boarding was simple."
Cons: "Seat was trash."

Pros: "Free movies and drinks"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable as hell"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "No problems. Service was great and we got there slightly faster than anticipated"
Cons: "Flight duration but that’s impossible to change so other than that nothing :)"

Pros: "Everything about Delta has been great. Especially the attitude of the staff"

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "The crews were very fast and efficient. The Dinner was good but the breakfast was very basic."
Cons: "The seat was so crammy and disgustingly uncomfortable"

Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."

Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"

Pros: "Food was great. Especially the ice cream."

Pros: "The food choices were broad enough for anyone. They came by with water periodically. The movies offered had a good range. The pillow was a surprisingly good size."
Cons: "Tight seating. Cold. Arm rests hurt my arms. Foot rest would have been a blessing. Blanket was too thin."

Cons: "The gate was changed but it was not updated to the app. Many of us were waiting in the wrong gate until 10 mins before departure."

Cons: "Everything was excellent."

Pros: "Emergency exit window seat"
Cons: "Punctuality 7hrs delays over 2 flights is unacceptable Ruined the first day of my trip"

Pros: "The comfort the professionalism of the staff everywhere I went"
Cons: "Little pricey on rental and hotel."

Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This is the second flight in a row in which Delta has either cancelled or rescheduled my flight at the last minute. Last time I was stranded in the Atlanta airport overnight waiting literally all night for them to return my luggage (which never came, and then was late even to my final destination). I will not be using Delta in the future."

Pros: "Entertainment system, snacks and friendly crew members"
Cons: "Serious delays on flight. It was very tiring and became an all day affair."

Pros: "Once we finally boarded, it was fine- plane was new and clean and entertainment system was great. Agents did the best they could with limited information on flight status. Provided snacks at departure gate- but they were all unhealthy."
Cons: "Flight originally booked with 2:30pm departure time, was pushed to 4:30pm a few weeks in advance. Then the flight was delayed on the day by 30 minute intervals until 9pm. Finally, we were switched to a different gate to board a different plane. Then sat on the plane at the gate for another hour so they could load all the bags. We didn't take off until 10:30pm- painful."

Cons: "Delayed, gate agent trying to rebook not super helpful"

Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All wonderful."

Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."

Pros: "Staff smooth flight great landing and free movies"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were super."
Cons: "Delta is just another cattle car"

Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"

Pros: "It's Delta, so I got miles."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in"

Cons: "I felt too cramped in to the plane. Our KLM FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED THE DAY BEFORE THE FLIGHT."

Pros: "Very nice airport, comfortable and up to date"
Cons: "Having to wait for seat assignments - add to the stress of travel"

Pros: "I had to change seats as my wife had surgery while we were away, Delta made that happen with little fuss. Seating was quite good."
Cons: "Air travel isn't what it once was, seats are smaller and closer but that applies to most airlines. Nothing specific and I usually fly Delta as it is my first choice above it's competition."

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."

Pros: "Delta is the best airline to use because they care about you as a customer. They will do everything they can to make your flight as enjoyable as possible. I would not recommend any other airline to use but DELTA !!"
Cons: "Nothing to input. All was great."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour, which didn't really affect me, as Detroit was final stop. However, there were a large amount of people on the flight with connecting flights coming into Detroit. I am POSITIVE that several of those people missed their connecting flights as the flight attendants and crew did not allow for them to leave the plane first. As people seem to be so self-centered anymore, the attendants should have announced that people were not to leave until all passengers with connecting flights had left the plane. Very sad that people can't use common courtesy all by themselves, but as they can't, it should have been enforced by the team on the plane."

Pros: "Flight was on time and left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Should offer headphones for free."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."

Cons: "It enough leg room and I am not tall. I'm 5'5""

Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"

Pros: "Crew and ground staff were excellent"
Cons: "I hate the CRJ configuration- no business class and coach seats are far too close together, worse than many Asian airbus configurations."

Pros: "Tv s food drink seat size"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The 2+ hour delay"

Pros: "Nothing. We missed our flight due to the fact that no one was at the counter to check us in and we weren't allowed to check in online."

Pros: "I love deltas crew. Quick service and they let you sleep. Very efficient boarding. Excellent."

Pros: "Was on time, in fact early. Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The CRJ is just very small. No room in the overheads, no room below. Seat didn't recline, all average carryons have to be gate checked, the usual. Well it still beats driving!"

Pros: "Flight left on time and got in early. This allowed us to catch an earlier flight to Seattle."

Pros: "The crew was so nice and helpful and the Captain’s in-flight announcements were helpful."

Pros: "Boarding in Bozeman was good."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear the pilot at all, which was disconcerting through a pretty turbulent flight. Unclear about beverage service; some people seemed to get drinks but no one ever asked if we wanted anything. Finally the app did not work consistently for in-flight entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "No water or snacks offered on either flight down. Flight delayed in Charlotte for 3 HOURS due to mechanical issue with first plane. No compensation for such a long delay."

Pros: "On time/ early arrival Careful about cleaning"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice"
Cons: "Absolutely no covid regulations in place, completely packed flight, boarding was horrendous everyone going in at once"

Pros: "Attendant was very friendly. Really appreciated her energy"
Cons: "Drink service was not as good as other trips."

Cons: "Smooth flight left on time and arrived on time."

Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "No usb charger. Flight delayed."

Pros: "The pasta meal was quite good"

Pros: "Crew kept us well hydrated, and were very diligent about picking up trash."

Pros: "Smooth for most of the flight"
Cons: "4:41 pm flight took off at 7:00 pm. Landed and now sitting on the tarmac waiting for a gate."

Pros: "Good crew. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Seat 20D stereo plug on screen was very finicky, lost audio until I twisted the plug. Happened any time I moved the headset cord."

Cons: "Free movies lagged and got stuck on wifi. Gave up watching one."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Delays that were not weather related. Ground crew changed shift and delayed us 30 mins and then they got a strap stuck that delayed us further. Overlap crews so that u always have a crew to work the flights"

Pros: "Quick flight good crew"
Cons: "More entertainment and snack selection"

Pros: "Not much. The pilot did try to keep us updated on our 5 hour delay The airline had conflicting rules on getting off the plane while waiting at the gate the pilot said yes, the attendants said no"
Cons: "At least offer water while trapped on a plane"

Pros: "Nice staff"

Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times and then again upon landing at destination."

Cons: "No snacks"

Cons: "No WIFI. Sat on Tarmac for 15 minutes upon arrival. No fault of anyone though."

Pros: "Nothing Flight was delayed , which made me miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "Mostly the staff who were not friendly at all. Two of them were very arrogant and ignorant. I’m not looking forward to my flight home and I’m thinking of changing airlines. I’ll never travel AA again. Very disappointing."

Cons: "I went to the airport. I was told a 3hr delay. I only live 10 mins to the airport. So I went back home to only receive a notification that the flight has departed after 45 mins. I am now stuck here since that was the last flight back. The earliest flight available is next day at 12pm which means I am going to miss work and I have been on hold with AA customer service exactly for 3 hrs now and still holding."

Pros: "The seats were awesome Excellent leg room The old airbus is a winner"
Cons: "The entertainment system is really outdated"

Pros: "AA had fantastic service, no complaints"

Pros: "On-board staff were professional and kept everything running smoothly and with great communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Claiming baggage at LaGuardia was an hours-long process for everyone on the flight leading to raised tension and lots of tired folks on what was already a late (and delayed flight)."

Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."

Cons: "delayed, missed connection, no assistance automatically booked for 24 hrs later connection, no accomodation travelling with infant, had to spend the night (total >12 hrs) at security post, no AA employee available to assist, horrible customer service actually AA does not know if there is such a thing as customer service exist!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed from NY , didn't make it for connecting flight."

Pros: "Very helpful and kind staff. Everything was on time and made for a great travel experience."

Pros: "Over 2 hours delayed, plans ruined"

Pros: "I like that they let a 70-yo wobbly old man hobble the length of plane to get some hot tea because there's no climate control i the air craft, and let the poor old man hobble back by himself juggling the hot tea in his hand and trying his best not to fall. Plus I truly admire one of the air stewardess's ability to chew gum - she was chewing vigorously throughout the 7-hour long flight. Amazing."
Cons: "BA and AA is the best partners. Because both their air crew are clueless about service standards. A 7-hour flight from London to JFK, again no meal choices, no offer of drinks in between meal times - is this a standard Western service level?"

Cons: "The seats were so close together! I was between two men, and one was spitting tabaco into a cup. It was terrible."

Cons: "The plane never cooled off for the entire flight"

Pros: "good price."
Cons: "La Guardia Airport is a kind of messy. Some people in AA are rude, specially ground personnel."

Cons: "I was stranded on the runway for nearly 2 hours no air it was awful!!!!"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "It was very cold, even with my vent closed and wearing a sweater. The food did not taste very good. One of the flight attendants (middle aged Caucasian male) was rude with an overall dismissive demeanor. For example, I requested water and he handed me a cup of warm water while giving everyone else around me a cup of ice with their beverage without being asked."

Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"

Pros: "The ticketing staff in Lihue was excellent!"

Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"

Cons: "small plane so tight seating. Outdoor climbing of stairs to board om the tarmac."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The service was good and the food was ok. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "That we didn't have our own screen to select our own movies."

Pros: "Comfort, convienience. Great service. Will fly again."

Cons: "flight was rebooked to a terrible time, the next day, had to spend over $300 for hotel, extra parking, extra meal, extra day on rental."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "It was nice and cool."
Cons: "It was delayed."

Cons: "Boarding was extremely slow and we arrived 1 hour late"

Pros: "good crew. plane was showing of wear. torn pockets and worn out seats."
Cons: "newer aircraft or refurbished one."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "More comfortable and spacious seating, more reasonable priced food for the quality you get"

Cons: "Was lied to concerning that 23kg of checked in luggage was included, turned out it was not."

Pros: "Crew is always great with United."

Cons: "No room in the seats at all"

Pros: "The crew was typical, the seat was on the aisle, which I prefer, but kind of in the way and I kept hitting my head."
Cons: "The snacks are not good at all, next time I'll take my own. They should just quit serving them and charging us for them."

Pros: "The flight was excellent. My luggage dding"
Cons: "Having my luggage."

Cons: "They nickle and dime you for carry on bags as well as both flights was really bumpy."

Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."

Pros: "Flight was ok the first flight from Btv to IAd was not great the plane made a lot of noise during takeoff and landing sounded like the ceiling panels were going too fall off as well as other noises"
Cons: "Lots of noises crew were good . Price of luggage was outrageous"

Pros: "The space in economy was bigger than expected. All the staff were very pleasant."
Cons: "I understand budget constraints but the food was mediocre. Can someone relook at choices."

Pros: "XSS">XSS"
Cons: "XSS">XSS"

Pros: "Me gusto que el vuelo fue puntual y la cortesía de la señora que nos atendió. Viaje en Business Class y no hubo nada excepcional que me gustara"
Cons: "La película que pusieron fue realmente mala"

Pros: "We were actually a few minutes early. No complaints."

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: "The wafer caramel cookies were great but no substitute for an actual breakfast."
Cons: "You have to pay an insane rate for the Wifi. Access to United.com and the United app weren't available so checking on connections was impossible."

Cons: "We had to run to get to our plane because of the ridiculous time-window you guys allowed (15 minutes if everything went according to plan--which it didn't)."

Pros: "That the flight was a bit shorter than it was suppose to be."
Cons: "A bit uncomfortable, but no more than any other flight"

Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"

Pros: "The plane did not crash"
Cons: "Customer service, being nickel and dimed, the staff told me if I don't like it to fly Jet Blue"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor communication and terrible management of bad situations."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "At least they made an effort and it was finally resolved."
Cons: "Fact that the plane was not checked properly and was about to take off and go back to the gate."

Pros: "OK service, hard landing"
Cons: "Scheduled times were kept"

Cons: "The crew started forcing people in my group (group 4) to check their carry ons, but when they boarded group 5, they let lots of people on with carry ons. There was plenty of space even after everyone was done. Very frustrating experience."

Cons: "It was delayed a few minutes"

Pros: "Nothing positive to say about United Airlines"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"

Cons: "United sucked on this leg. Flight never should have left Chicago. We were diverted to Oklahoma City, where United abandoned us. System was unresponsive and noone could override the system. Folks at the counter could not cancel the diverted flight, so United was not able to rebook us on other flights. This was at midnight to 2:00 am. I stayed at the airport to catch a 5:00 am flight to Houston, then to Omaha, then had to rent a car to get the rest of the way. United lied to us about what was happening to us several times. Then abandoned us when the pilots timed out."

Pros: "Wife is legally blind and asked for help deboarding plane. Flight attendant refused. A passenger in front of her helped her. This is terrible service."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Zero"
Cons: "The weather in SF delayed is so very long while the airport staff were rather rude at both airports. And after all that, my bag did not make it on my connecting flight- or maybe it did but you guys texted me it didn't via your little app- and I had to go back for it mysef the next day becuase you would not deliver it or help me find it. wanted to be compensated for my long and horrible ordeal."

Cons: "Service,and checking .. most people at ticket counter"

Pros: "The crew was very professional and promptly getting people into their seats."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was slightly hectic, but due to lack of attention on the passengers part. A seat was double booked and the crew handled it quite well in addition to a woman who insisted on sitting next to her older child but hadn't planned for it."

Pros: "The crew on every leg of the flight was very professional. Having one TSA entry point for eight gates at Brulington really slows things down, I realize this has nothing to do with United though."
Cons: "I wish instead of me when I missed my flight due to TSA that United themselves would have tried to get me out on another flight that same day. They assumed I wanted only one stop, when in fact it didn't matter to me so long as I wasn't stuck another overnight. I used Kayak in the terminal to discover a different flight that same day and was lucky to get on as each flight was fully booked."

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"

Pros: "seats aren't so cramped."
Cons: "too cold. could have a few blankets on hand.."

Pros: "Good service, quick flight, food/entertainment N/A"
Cons: "Checked my carry on even though there were many open overhead bins and I explained we only had an hour layover in Dulles"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly (even though they didn't have enough food/snacks to purchase)."
Cons: "1. One gate agent was extremely rude! 2. I was seated near the rear of the plane, and there was no food left to purchase when the flight attendant got to the back of the plane (no time to purchase during layover, because my flight into connecting city had been delayed, and I barely made my connecting flight). I was starving!!"

Pros: "Quick easy no delays"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I like the fact that the crew is very attentive and helped us to get on board on time."
Cons: "There is not a single thing that I dislike."

Pros: "cancelled"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The older female attendant was extremely rude . Noted her inability to communicate with an obvious mentally challenge teenager. This attenders needs to retire she appears to be very tired of her job giving United a very poor image."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The whole arrangement going through Air Canada but flying United. I never got confirmation numbers from United at all. I had to call Air Canada to get confirmation codes for United. Getting confirmation codes from Air Canada had no real significance with United. United would not confirm seating. When United finally confirmed seating, the seats were not together. Then United changed the flight three times and never gave updated confirmation codes. The last change came the day before our departure. Then United charged another $138.00 for seats that were assigned and never informed us. I am still trying to get the $138.00 back."

Pros: "Easy."
Cons: "No snack or entertainment."

Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."

Pros: "Flight was boarded efficiently. Left the gate on time and got in early."

Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."

Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"

Pros: "the staff was friendly and helpful, boarding was fast"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dirty, crumbs on my seat for the first flight but overall, not bad. There was no entertainment other than their magazine provided, so that is not applicable."

Cons: "United made no accommodation for a late-arriving connecting flight. The United schedule required changing terminals and a race to the next gate -- then closed the doors five minutes early even though there were passengers sprinting from the other terminal to make their connection. They knew the connecting flight had been delayed; they should have waited five minutes to let us on. The result was a nine-hour wait in Newark Airport for the next United flight."
