Cons: "5h delayed"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Delayed flight plus tv didn’t work"
Cons: "delays, crying children and sniffling sneezing passengers. Restroom was dirty."
Cons: "Delays, changed departure gates. Getting used to this on most airlines these days. Was hoping JetBlue"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful. This was my first flight on JetBlue and I was impressed with the selection of snacks and drinks."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Efficient and kept us informed despite weather delay. Lovely flight attendants"
Cons: "Non Working tv, cramped seats"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "1. Forced to check carry on because of a pocket in the front when other passengers were allowed to bring actual suitcases which were taken right before boarding. Apparently JetBlue has a quota to meet as to how many people they charge for carry on luggage. 2. Refused to allow me to request my seat ahead of time to try and charge a $50 fee for an upgraded seat, even though by purchasing a ticket, I am guaranteed a seat on the plane. 3. Late once again. So far every flight taken by JetBlue this year has been late. My only on time flight this year has been with Delta. I do believe they are the new Spirit Airlines in disguise. This airline has been moved to the bottom of my list. I may take them once more but it depends on how many points I have with them, if it's enough to cover a free trip. If it doesn't, I will forfeit as the aggravation and nasty behaviour at the check in counter especially at LaGuardia is too much to take. They are also every discriminatory at that airport also, especially the people who work at JetBlue. I have to take responsibility for keep trying. It the same as beating a dead horse and expecting it to get up and run."
Cons: "The airline had the flight delayed due to waiting for flight attendants. Very irresponsible of the crew and members, which weren’t working on the flight"
Pros: "Great flight on JetBlue from JFK to Nantucket. Easy boarding, quick flight and minimal interruptions. So much better than taking the forever ferry from the Lower East side or dealing with the hassle of driving to RI/Cape to catch a quicker ferry."
Cons: "Flight was already delayed and then we sat on the airplane for approximately 45 minutes before take off."
Pros: "Friendly crew and fast flight."
Cons: "No reclining seats"
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Drunk guy on plane."
Cons: "The the fight was 2 hours late"
Pros: "Snacks, movies, leg rooms."
Cons: "Too cold, blanket and headphones are 5$ each"
Pros: "It's comfortable and the staff is friendly"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "My flight was canceled due to weather conditions. I made a request for a refund and never received a reply."
Pros: "Flight was steady, entertainment was great, and it was comfortable."
Pros: "Lots of leg room! Flew with Delta on the way up. My 6'5" son and I (5/10") were extremely cramped on the Delta flight, having to sit side ways in the seat for almost 3 hours. Won't do that again. Jet Blue had plenty of room to spare - over 5" to seat in front of us! No comparison!! Thanks, Jet Blue."
Cons: "Lots of hassles at NY airport. Staff did not agree with each other as to what should or should not be scanned...confusing to say the least."
Cons: "Everything was good !!! Thank you for the flying"
Pros: "Seems like spacing between the seats is greater on JetBlue than with some other airlines. Really like that."
Pros: "Boarding and departing on time The inflight entertainment made the flight time go by super fast. Love JetBlue"
Cons: "The boarding was a shitshow because nothing was done to prevent people from taking all of the overhead compartment room, so by the time my group boarded, there was no room. But, people were still trying and so that backed the line way up from 1/2 way into the plane all the way out the plane and IN SPITE OF MY REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO GET THE FLIGHT CREW TO ASSIST AND CLEAN UP THIS PILE OF HUMANITY, THEY DID NOTHING!!! They forced me to gate checked my carry on bag (no checked bag) and did not tell me I would not get it back AT the plane and had to go out through security to get it at the baggage claim and come back in through security and because of that incompetence I MISSED MY CONNECTION AND WAS STRANDED IN FLL OVERNIGHT. After the front desk continuously trying to explain to me how it was my fault some how, I HAD TO PURCHASE A SEPARATE TICKET ON A DIFFERENT AIRLINE OUT OF MIA AT 5AM TO MAKE THE WEDDING!!!! This is beyond unacceptable and as someone that travels for work and stays roughly 100 nights a year in hotels, I WILL NEVER ALLOW YOUR COMPANY TO BE ABLE TO PUT ME IN THIS SITUATION AGAIN!!!!"
Cons: "All the DELAYS! Seemed a bit unprepared"
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "Service was great, smooth landing. Great songs and communication by pilot and captain"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process. Terrific crew."
Pros: "really love the seats the crew was awesome! I will be flying jet blue again!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great crew, ample snacks & good entertainment options"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min at gate in LGA"
Pros: "I like the fact that Jetblue handled the on boarding ot the passengers fast and efficiently starting with preferred riders, then going from the rear of the plane and moving forward. They also realized the plane was full so offered customers the free option of checking a bag in cargo. I would have preferred if they advised customers before checking through security of this option as I would have taken it rather than discard with some bottled products. The entertainment video was great on board, they offered free beverages and snacks. The crew moved through the aisle fast and efficiently when dispersing the food, and again when collect the refuse. While we had a little turbulence, the flight was uneventful and the pilot handled the landing very well. Departing the plane was also fast and efficient, although takes time because the plane was full. Overall, I was impressed with JetBlue, and their flight team."
Cons: "I thought that although comfortable, the chairs and fabric were obviously well worn and definitely needed upgrading. I also noticed that the chair head area didn't have a removable sanitary cover, which I thought should be there considering the number and frequency of change overs per seat on these flights. This is necessary to promote sanitary and comfortable conditions."
Pros: "The best part of this trip was checking in.. it was a breeze.. I must say the Orlando landing was the best touchdown I've ever experienced..Smooth.."
Cons: "Let's start with getting on the airplane was like herding sheep.. When I finally got to my seat someone was in it.. And I had no place to put my carry on.. The flight was suppose to leave 9:00pm.. we didn't leave til 9:40.. The safety announcement was awful. We cudnt hear most of it.. The turbulence was scary and the noise made me put on headphones to sleep. Once it landed in Orlando the airplane traveled around the entire airport .. It took forever to get off the plane but I was so happy to get off"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly!"
Cons: "Voice of female announcer at gate--too loud and did not speak clearly=just annoying, not informational."
Cons: "Entertainment (TV) did not work on the entire flight in numerous seats, even after rebooting the system."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and legroom Flight arrived early."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi for whole flight. Entertainment video glitch for much of flight."
Pros: "I like that i got there safe and fast"
Cons: "A person was on the plane with there dog and they didnt have a pass for the dog and crew escorted everyone off the plane just to get the person off."
Pros: "Great non stop flight from NY to Boston. It was quick and smooth and I got good entertainment and got to watch tennis. I will definitely use Jet Blue more often."
Pros: "They had little televisions screens for entertainment which was unique that it had tv rather than movies. I liked it."
Cons: "No phone chargers which was a little flaw."
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "jet blue staff are generally friendly and flight was comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful despite difficult passengers."

Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "Leg room. New planes."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job, flight was as smooth as glass for the 7 of us passengers!"
Pros: "Super nice!"
Cons: "One minute into the Flight the Outside Wing Compartment Came unlatched and the Door To it was open about 9” enough that I was watching my Briefcase come close to flying off the plane. Passenger notified the Pilot and they Returned to STL to inspect the Compartment Latch."
Pros: "Fun flight to the cape. Awesome pilot"
Pros: "I flew in from Houston, TX to visit family in Sharon, VT. The closest major airports are Boston and Manchester and both are several hours away. For a few extra bucks, I can fly to Lebanon, NH thanks to Cape Air and save my family members hours and hours of driving. Very convenient. The Cape Air staff and pilots are always super friendly!"
Cons: "The plane can be kind of loud; it is certainly a good idea to pack hearing protection."
Pros: "Quick flight. Excellent service."
Pros: "Considering I was a bit scared flying on a small plane my pilot was excellent. I enjoyed this flight so much. It was spectacular!"
Cons: "My Pre TSA Check did not apply to flight"
Pros: "Excellent woman taking care of a delayed flight. Handled passenger and boarding process as well as check in beautifully and so kind and efficiently!!"
Cons: "The delay due to mechanical problems"
Pros: "Got to sit next to the pilot!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was an absolutely breath taking flight!!"
Pros: "All except TSA check"
Cons: "TSA check for domestic flys"
Cons: "Connection booked too close. Missed flight, new flight delayed. Kayak booking does not leave enough time to transfer."
Pros: "Good people quick flight"
Cons: "I'm a big guy and it's a really small plane."
Pros: "Got a shuttle from the plane to my terminal at STL. Very convenient."
Cons: "Rather loud, but I don’t think there was much the airline could do about that. Maybe earplugs."
Pros: "Flight on time. Nice smooth ride. Very friendly pilot."
Pros: "Crew was pilot and helpful in explaining the situation to me."
Cons: "Got bumped from a flight to make way for a pilot in training. The fact that this happened on christmas eve made it even worse. Had to wait until boarding to find out that was being bumped and was told I shouldn't have been allowed to check in."
Pros: "small plane soft landing"
Cons: "pilote acts like army general single pilote only air vent poor in plane"
Cons: "I asked the ground crew for a box that I had checked and was told that it would be forwarded to my next flight. It wasn't. Now cape air is telling me the only way I can get it back is to fly to San Juan and pick it up."
Cons: "We were left waiting after the flight we were booked on took off full. Had to wait another 45min to have a private flight with no copilot."
Pros: "The ease of changing flights."
Cons: "Of the three women at the gate one was rude to everyone. The two others seemed ditzy and clueless. The announcements they made were incomprehensible to many in the passenger audience. There was substantial eye-rolling."
Pros: "You see there was a terrible storm that closed the EIS Beef Island Airport. But because I booked through ya'll I was totally screwed. The individual Airlines are not permitted to rebook my ticket because you are a third party carrier. and You would not rebook because the airline could not change the flight status on the first plane from Mayaguez to San Juan - that flight was not cancelled due to the closure but because I would be stuck in San Juan for possibly 2 days with no money and no where to sleep, well you get the point. So InterCaribbean and Cape Air came to the rescue and after a 4-5 hour ordeal and having to travel to Mayaguez airport I am now rebooked."
Cons: "Y'all and will never ever ever book through a third party again."
Pros: "Friendly & informative pilot, smooth efficient ground crew: they didn't bang up my vintage Levi's back pack..."
Cons: "No complaints...A+"
Pros: "Shirt flight no food, but bumpy. I almost threw up on a 25 minute flight"
Pros: "Ride was smooth."
Cons: "No information nor staff at counter, so one was uncertain when flight would depart."
Pros: "Flying over the traffic heading to Hyannis where you take the ferry to Hyannis. Experienced pilot who told us the stewardess would be passing out food after we were airborne. Good sense of humor in a 9 passenger plane."
Pros: "I love the small planes and the overall friendliness of the pilot and the other employees - reservationists, ground crew, and others in the terminal. Once I landed in Nantucket, I had a 1 1/2 hour layover to Hyannis. When I went to check in with the reservationist, she asked if I wanted to get to Hyannis faster or if I had business on the island. I said I would like to get to Hyannis as quickly as I could, so she put me on the next flight which left within 15 minutes. After a long flight from LA to Boston, then to Nantucket, and then to Hyannis, it was nice to get home earlier than expected. I live on the Cape, and I love that I can fly into Hyannis. Then I only have a 25 minute ride home."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Easy, painless and on time!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Flights across the east coast were delayed, luckily ours was only 15min late to take off."
Cons: "My flight from Rutland to Boston was unexpectedly cancelled with very little notice. I could not reschedule my trip because I needed to catch a separate flight from Boston. My alternative was to drive there and stay the night in a hotel, which was expensive and frustrating. I will be calling for a refund."
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Cape Air. The staff especially in Owls Head are phenomenally nice and helpful."
Pros: "The view from PR to St Thomas was amazing!"
Cons: "The departure was late for no apparent reason that complicated my meeting with family members in St Thomas."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled because of engine trouble. As a result we miss our connecting flight to our final destination."
Pros: "They plain didn't crash although it sounded like that was likely when we were taking off."
Cons: "The lack of ear protection to cancel out some of the loudness of the small aircraft would have been REALLY nice."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride. Best flight I haven't had in a long time"
Pros: "Great service and quick flight from Lebanon to White Plains. Super convenient and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "They have a bad rap in the Caribbean for bad service and unreliability, as I found out after my bad experiences. I was left stranded in St Croix because even though they charged me for the flight "my name didn't appear on their seat list." And they were like oops nothing we can do sorry. This time, they left me stranded in Puerto Rico. For three days they couldn't rebook me. Flight was cancelled on xmas weekend because the "pilot was over his hours." After they rebooked everyone else on the flight including my boyfriend, their computer wouldn't rebook me for some reason so I had to purchase a ticket to be able to leave. They assured me they would refund me but of course I've been emailing with Cape Air for a week and still no refund. Never flying with them again obviously, and recommend you avoid them if you have connections or need to get somewhere guaranteed. Maybe they have better service on the east coast but they should do a total overhaul of their service in the Caribbean."
Pros: "It was my first solo flight, as well as first flight in a small plane. Quick, easy check in and boarding in Mayaguez, PR. In San Juan, exiting and meeting family was not easy, due to terminal design. Overall, great experience."
Pros: "But it came on the next flight to Rutland and was delivered to my house that evening."
Pros: "Good, efficient flight to Bar Harbor from Boston!"
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment so you should include a column in the survey that reads: N/A Otherwise excellent pilot!"
Cons: "It was a rain night fly.... but that is no ones' fault"
Pros: "Great. But you have to not be scared of small planes. The plane only seats 8 people. You can high five the pilot."
Cons: "Very small. I'm 6'4" very tight fit"
Cons: "AIRPORT SHUT DOWN TO EARLY AND NO AVAILABLE CAR RENTAL WITH DEBIT CARD. I BECAME STUCK WITH USING TAXI CAB."
Pros: "Our pilot, Danielle, was very professional and friendly. The flight was absolutely beautiful. The flight was 22 min in a Cessna, so no food or entertainment needed."
Pros: "Service top notch"
Cons: "First flight was cancelled and alternate flight was delayed. USB charging port didn’t work. Very disappointed."
Cons: "I was traveling with the exact same size suitcase I’ve probably traveled with as a carry on for at least 50 prior flights, and the boarding agent insisted it was too large. I am a very petite woman, and so when I carry a normal size bag, it can look large by comparison to my body. Further, the flight was 1/3 empty and had plenty of overhead space even once the plane was completely boarded. I am sorely offended based on the discrimination I suggested simply because I am short of stature."
Cons: "Coach seating is too tight"
Cons: "Why can't the crews in in LGA communicate with the passengers during the boarding process like at other airports so that it won't be a mad mob press to get on the plane. The gate agent using the PA didn't or couldn't enunciate, and folks just 15 feet away were asking what she said."
Pros: "We had two medical emergency on board so the flight attendant took care of them really well"
Cons: "They check in my hand carry my whole point of carrying is not to be bother with claing my luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The new AA rule about not being able to bring any carry on. Next we won’t be able to get a coat or a purse on. They making it harder and harder to fly with them."
Pros: "Not overcrowded or over booked. Efficient boarding process. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Unsatisfied and spent over an hour on the tarmac waiting For a gate change that was not communicated. We sat and waited for an hour while some “carts were moved” from the gate. And now we’ve been waiting on our bags for 30 minutes. I have high expectations for AA and have had great experiences in the past. I will reconsider using this airline in the future."
Pros: "We received an upgrade for our seats, during the flight the staff were very attentive to us. The flight was quiet and calm."
Pros: "The flight attendant from Pensacola having a good sense of humor."
Pros: "Gate agent was very friendly and the flight boarded and departed on schedule"
Cons: "No dislikes about this flight. Everything went well"
Cons: "Checking my bag when there was plenty of overhead cabin space"
Pros: "Nice new 737 with power plugs at the seats Great efficient crew -- one of them really egged passengers to get out of the aisles -- this should happen more often"
Cons: "All was good Packed flight"
Pros: "No complaints!"
Pros: "3:00 flight to Boston left at 2:59 and only took 42 minutes"
Cons: "Gate not ready so we had to wait 15 minutes on tarmac"
Pros: "Smooth ride, checked in online, electronic boarding pass, going through security - a breeze. Was little apprehensive because I heard bad things about AA - my 1st experience was good."
Pros: "Wheelchair was ready in La Guardia airport, but transfer from gate C to gate B had impossible stairs or shuttle outside. This option required another security check which was terrible. TSA personnel was rude and incompetent. In the end there was no need for such scrutiny and we were released, but the emotional impact lasted for hours."
Pros: "I was not seated with my husband when we were given our tickets and they were gracious enough to give us exit row seats by each other."
Cons: "As we were boarding the plane they told us that we needed to check our bags. No other explanation was given. I brought a carry on so that I didn’t have to check my bag. I thought maybe it was because there wasn’t enough overhead space, but as we got on the plane the overhead bins were very large and extra space was left as they began to close up the bins for take off. It was extremely annoying and I felt I was given no choice."
Cons: "American Airlines has to be the worst airline I’ve ever traveled with. They canceled both of my flights and scheduled me for flights the next day each time. Customer service pretty poor. I opted to take a train instead. They didn’t reimburse me either. Awful"
Cons: "Everything. Flights canceled due to "weather" but every other airline was flying to these locations and the customer service experience was miserable at best."
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and gave great service!"
Pros: "Perfect quiet comfy flight"
Pros: "Boarding as quick and efficient. Staff were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing bad to comment on as the trip was a smooth trip"
Pros: "La organización para abordar y salir del avión es excelente. Muy buena atención de los empleados. Avión limpio y con opción para entretenimiento y cargar los equipos electrónicos. Muy buen vuelo."
Cons: "Nothing bad."
Cons: "Flighr got delayed resting in connecting flight missing, AA didnt bother to comp the 6 hours of waiting by providing a hotel. Instead AA pretended to give a discount for a Hyatt which would end up costing 100 usd anyway, the same peice for hotels in that area anyone can fond on hotwire for 4+ hotels. Bad customer service, bad expectations management."
Pros: "On time and arrived early!"
Cons: "Had almost a 4 hour delay !!!!!"
Cons: "The staff encouraged me to get on my first delayed flight because my second was delayed as well. But as I landed from my first flight the second flights delay was reversed and I had no notification of this change. I missed my connecting flight. Had to stay in the airport all night, had to fly into a different destination at 7 am. No explanations, no help. Terrible."
Pros: "Left on time Nice flight attendants Arrived early"
Cons: "Runway time in New York"
Pros: "The fly departed on time"
Cons: "Two hour delay in departure. They had an unspecified mechanical problem and had to get a different aircraft. They did not make any restitution to the passengers. Not even a free beer."
Pros: "The crew did everything they could for the passengers to make them comfortable and informed about the situation but unfortunately it was out of their hands."
Cons: "It may be La Guardia Airport that is the one to blame and not AA, but long story short I was on the airplane on the ground in NY for about 5 hours. We had a domino effect of things happen that caused us to be delayed and then cancelled. First a Gate change to a different terminal after boarding was suppose to begin so we had to take a shuttle over and we're still missing 50 passengers, Engine problem that required maintenance, refuel because we were in the plane on the ground waiting for so long, deplane and replane for 10 mins because of a law, on the runway and back to the gate for all these different occasions. When they finally let us off the plane after all these hours it was because of weather (although the skies were blue and the pilot was confident it wouldn't be an issue) they didn't actually cancel the flight until 5pm, my flight was suppose to take off at 9am. They were also required by law to give us free snacks Bc we hadn't eaten all day or had fresh air--these were all chips and soda...in gluten free so I had to starve. AA customer relations said they couldn't compensate because the issue that was documented in their records for my flight cancellation was because of "weather"... my flight couldn't be rescheduled until the following afternoon, making me have to cancel work 2 days in a row and pay for multiple taxis and and extra night of boarding. I will NEVER fly AA or La Guardia again."
Cons: "I've got to the airport at 4:30am because my flight was at 8:00am. Unfortunately I had to wait until 12:30pm to take another flight because American Airlines didn't have a flight crew for our aircraft. They did not refund money for the waiting, they didn't give any voucher for breakfast, they just gave us chips and drinks. People were very anxious and mad about the sInitiation."
Pros: "As somewhat experienced travelers, we know to keep carry on luggage as tight as possible. I was pleasantly suprised to see that overhead bins were not full! We didn't have seats next to each other initially, but the gate agent put us in the exit row with extra legroom!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "My trip was awesome and very easy."
Pros: "Movie selection is great."
Cons: "No cookies :("
Pros: "-friendly staff -clean plane (inside) -smooth landings departure/return -first snack and beverage included -fast flight -confident pilots"
Cons: "-overhead crowded (luggage) -ac didn't really work well on the return. Was hot the whole ride. Started blowing cold air when landed. -paying extra for picking seat not worth it."
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "On time departures, on time arrivals. Not interested in entertainment or food. Regular flier to/from Chicago & LGA"
Cons: "Seating is just way too cramped, especially for an elderly woman!"
Pros: "It is good"
Pros: "This time every thing excellent"
Pros: "It got cancelled!"
Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Just because the flight was full.. They checked in my luggage but put on the wrong tag. I have no change clothes for more than 24 hours. Hopefully, they'll deliver to me by today. But I am not holding my breath on it"
Cons: "Never made it. My flights were canceled. So I don't even think this review counts."
Pros: "The actual plane crew and flight."
Cons: "The flight changed gates and terminals as well as times and the staff knew nothing about it. Staff on the phone and in person had poor attitude."
Pros: "I really like the AC outlet at the seats. I land at my destination not worried that my phone is about to die. It is such a relief."
Cons: "Everyone shuffling their bags into the plane is just crazy. Not much the airlines can do, but it just slows down EVERYTHING."
Pros: "Empty plane personal seating everyone"
Cons: "Delay for 3 hours"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! Friendly and attentive!!"
Cons: "More snack options other than pretzels would’ve been nice."
Pros: "Minimal turbulence"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than 4 hours. It was a bad experience with United."
Pros: "I liked the extensive entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t like that for about 10 hours there is no meal service."
Pros: "Everything was good, except the seats are too tight."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "That I could take a traditional sized carry on and personal bag onto the flight for no additional charge. Flight crews very nice. Also complimentary beverage included. So nice to not get nickel and dimes to death."
Cons: "Happy to get free WiFi but couldn’t get it to work. Also, a GF snack like nuts that don’t contain wheat would be nice"
Cons: "The waiting in the lobby."
Pros: "Crew was great, and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "For the price, there should be better food, and a bit more breathing room."
Pros: "I'm glad the problem was found prior to us leaving the airport."
Cons: "Having to wait almost 2 hours, missing my connecting flight.. causing undue stress prior to vacationing -OVERCROWDED!!! had to sit in a center seat squashed for 3 hours."
Pros: "Everything was on time and it was a good flight"
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable. Airline lost my luggage and were very rude when i only asked questions as to what could have happened! Never flying with United again. I still don't have my luggage."
Cons: "Plane was in poor condition. Made loud beeping noises during final part of flight. No power outlets at seat."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and everything went as planned"
Cons: "Smaller seats"
Cons: "4 hrs late departure - missed my appointment"
Pros: "My father passed away earlier that day and I needed a ticket quickly to fly home. At the airport I was a mess and the airline counter attendant was so amazing helping me ( I had never flown United and had no idea about their luggage policies ect..). She quickly pulled me aside.. helped me with checking in and did her best to fine me another seat thatvwas better than the one I had already chosen.Also, she gave me a hug and her condolences. Flying with an airline that has heart helped me so much during one of the most difficult times of my life. I will absolutely fly with them again."
Cons: "No complaints ... but I paid for a movie to take my mind off of my father's passing during the flight and there was a short in my monitor for our whole row. It kept cutting in and out and "searching for signal", I only was able to see 1/4 of the movie I paid for with all the interruptions in signal."
Pros: "The people were all very nice. The plane was top-notch. Would definitely fly with them again if I had the opportunity."
Cons: "The boarding lasted much longer than I had anticipated. I was also not informed of when my group was boarding at the proper time."
Pros: "All was good. Flight attendants helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything! The flight left on time and landed early. Service was great and the staff was super."
Pros: "Well organized."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 5 times causing us to miss our connection. We had to stay overnight in the airport in Chicago. We were told that there would be blankets waiting for us that we could use however there weren't and we had to practically beg for them."
Pros: "a little bit more foot-room than my previous flight on a different airline."
Cons: "Uncomfortably warm!!"
Pros: "The stroopwaffles were a tasty treat. The flight was well managed and crew was attentive and professional. I never have problems with United and like how pilots keep us informed with when to expect turbulence. The first hour through storms was a bit scary. T.v. on the seats was a good feature but I didn't order anything."
Cons: "I put my phone in the pocket in front of me and when I took it out it was sticky with gum someone put in there. Inevitably crew can't check every pocket and nook for gum or garbage from previous travelers. I don't blame them. We almost were asked to leave the flight bc it was overbooked by 2 seats. Made me a bit nervous when we walked by check-in and they pointed out we were a traveling pair. Lucky there were a few others"
Pros: "I was able to move my dear and get better leg room. Really appreciated that!"
Cons: "Teeny snack."
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "Everything else. I flew from PHL to IAH and was very unhappy with the experience. The gate agents were unfriendly. The bag check agents downstairs were unfriendly. I had two separate phone calls with United a week prior to the flight to understand and confirm the bag policy. This was AFTER booking my flight so they knew upfront I bought a basic economy ticket. After my first call, I understood a personal item would be free and I would be able to pay for my carry on bag, but only within 24 hours prior to the flight. I made a second call to be absolutely sure the previous agent gave me the correct information and pricing. So I paid the $25 for my carry on, checked in online, and waited at the gate while boarding at the very end because I was basic economy. They did not let me board with my bag. They requested another $50 to check my carry on with them or I would be rebooked. I struggled to afford the flight, let alone the carry on fee I had paid in advance. I literally did not have the money, and even if I had the cash, they only accept plastic. What blew me away was they weren't asking me to check my carry on because of the size. But because of my basic economy ticket, aka, the N fare. Despite checking with two employees by phone after buying my ticket and paying for a carry on in advance, there is a rule in place that states "if you have purchased Basic Economy, you will only be allowed one personal item, unless you are a Premier member or a primary card member using a qualifying MileagePlus credit card." Therefore, there is no alternative. You are a second class citizen; a no good deplorable, when you buy this ticket and there is nothing you can do to upgrade it. Only the "premier" passengers have the right to bring a carry on aboard even if you think you're paying for the privelage. What I was expected to somehow understand after asking two United employees prior if I could purchase the right to bring a carry on bag aboard, was to CHECK my CARRY ON downstairs or learn the hard way. Wow. What a ruthless way to learn this lesson. I waited 7 more hours to board the next available flight. What a nightmare. I thought I had did the appropriate research necessary and planned in advance to avoid these situations. Checking in online and contacting customer service prior is no longer the convenience it used to be. Even if you've done your research, bring additional funds with you. Even if you check in online and have a digital boarding pass, always check in with a real human prior to entering the TSA security line. A side note, United is trying to save money while "speeding up" the process by forcing you to use a computer to hand over your checked luggage. Speaking with a human now is a monumental struggle."
Pros: "It had movie screens quite old but better than none"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so got to sit w/o middle seat psgr."

Cons: "I didn't realize how you can no longer be accommodated without being charged for everything."
Pros: "service on time"
Cons: "snacks very little amounr"
Pros: "All good, no complaints!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothe!"
Cons: "Not 1 thing."
Pros: "The incoming plane was delayed due to 'equipment prep'. Since it was connecting me to my longer leg, I was nervous. The crew did a great job of deplaning everyone and getting the plane ready for our flight with very minimal delay."
Cons: "It was a quick 30 minute flight and everything was fine."
Pros: "The seats and the price"
Cons: "How far back I was"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and attentive to my needs. I like good service and friendliness so for this experience I give 5 stars"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable in my seat but that's expected on an airplane"
Pros: "Drinks and cookies were good. On-flight attendants were polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours at night due to repairs. Luckily, they placed me in a hotel. However, it was probably the worst hotel that I have every stayed (uncomfortable bed, bad pillows, smokey smell, etc.). The next morning while boarding, the gate attendant was extremely rude and unprofessional. I will spend a little extra to not fly with United if possible."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Great aircraft!"
Pros: "Flight was disorganized because of maintenance issue"
Pros: "TV option"
Cons: "Confusing boarding status regarding priority (how did I get 5th) Had to check carry on bag Terrible leg room. Worst I've experienced. Knees hit seat in front Rough landing"
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Cons: "My connection to YYZ was cancelled and I was not even rebooked to the next flight. I needed to buy a ticket on Air Canada in order to get there. Every time I fly United I find myself asking "why in the hell am I flying United?""
Cons: "Very rude crew."
Cons: "The seat cushions were in terrible condition!!!"
Cons: "I paid for my luggage in advance and when I arrived at Philly airport it was not acknowledged"
Pros: "Returned flight from Phily was ok and on time"
Cons: "The first part of my flight was cancelled after the passengers were boarded. Then long lines to make changes. I had to booked with American Airlines to get to Phily"
Cons: "Every time I fly through San Franscisco, my United flight is cancelled, delayed or I get stranded! If you know a large number of your passengers are coming in on a flight from the east coast that was delayed for de-icing...wouldn't it be easier to just hold the flight, since it is the last flight of the night. United's customer service and care of passengers is horrible!"
Pros: "This was the best flight."
