Pros: "In general, everything as expected, some crew members were even extra nice."

Cons: "We like for next Fly from Kabul to JFK Emirates give us Comfortable seat for a mother with her baby thanks"
Pros: "The entertainment system is good"
Cons: "The crew was poor. Didn’t appreciate when requested toilet paper in the toilet, as there was none. Ask for a snack as no food until 5hrs into the flight, crew were impolite and rude. The crew gathered in the gallery and chat among themselves. Very annoyed if you interrupted them, asking for a water."
Pros: "Every thing is very good"
Cons: "Too many unruly children"
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "Personnel were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "The food far too spicy and was unable to eat it!! Sat by someone who should have had two seats instead of one. Thus a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Entertainment via onboard tv is really good and keep you busy during even the longest flight"

Pros: "Food as requested: Great Entertainment:great Crew: Nice 16 hrs flight didn’t seem boring at all"
Pros: "Nice comfortable seat in business class on A380"
Cons: "Crew was awful. We paid a lot of money for Airport upgrade to business class because we were told economy was oversold. We were promised full business class service. On board aircraft we were not offered business class meal options as we were told they didn’t know how many people had upgraded. It was absolutely embarrassing when crew skipped us when drink and meal service were being ordered. Crew was obnoxious and dismissive about situation. Absolutely atrocious."

Cons: "high price and long waiting time"

Cons: "everything, food was below average"
Pros: "Hard working, friendly, and effective team. Your customer care is matchless!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff was excellent. Food good. Great choice of movies."
Cons: "Bigger and more comfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight tracker should be upgraded, I expect the mileage covered was way off. Also, I don't want to see commercials while I follow the flight. The forward camera was cool."
Cons: "Crew should keep eye on the toilets. The waste basket was backed up."
Pros: "Crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "1 hr delay with take-off due to security check of all carry-on baggage from a passenger leaving the plane"
Pros: "everything"
Pros: "Food was the best I ever had on Economy, seats were comfortable, enterteriment was very good, cabin crew very polite and attentious..."
Cons: "Boarding was too Long with to much security measures"
Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."
Pros: "Enough leg room, wide seads"
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Pros: "Great service, good food, lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "Hard to sleep with multiple service times"
Pros: "I love the experience of fly with kayak and look forward to many more"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was expected from a good flight."
Pros: "Price on my ticket was great and comfort was good"
Cons: "The ground staff at Bangalore in India had no idea on crowd control. Before they started boarding they made no announcements. The agents would talk amongst themselves but there were no announcements. With the result that everyone rushed at once for boarding. The lady agent who was scanning the passes kept yelling at people to form a line but by then it was too late On the flight, they ran out of vegetarian meals by the time they got to my seat!!"
Pros: "Very good services by Emirates, flight was on time, leg room between seats was sufficient, meals were good and staff behavior was good"
Cons: "the vegeterian option was missing in lbreakfast and lunch"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."
Pros: "The crew and leg room"
Cons: "Food was very spicy and oily. My 3 year old three up after consuming the fried rice. Boarding was veru chaotic."
Pros: "The plane was good and new. Larger plane and ride is a much more comfortable for the longer hauls. Overall good experience traveling."
Cons: "Veggie food, especially Asian vegetarian was unpalatable for the longer flight. Kids pretty much starved to then eat at the Dubai airport later."
Cons: "Staff crew was amazing"
Pros: "The planes were very comfortable and the boarding was very well organized, especially for parents eith children."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very helpful and they were a little condescending."

Crew was very attentive and flight was ontime

Friendly crew and no delays,

The flight was good, no issues to complain about.

They need more staff to work at check in desk or change flight hours. There were 2 flights of LATAM at the same time and other 2 flights near my flight hour so the line to check in were too long and it didn’t move fast. I understand that now they take more time because they have to check many papers because of COVID-19. But I nearly miss my flight. I barely arrived to the gate 5 minutes before departure time! And obviously this things leads to delay.

Cons: "Excelente atención y servicio"
Pros: "Muito confortável. Boarding muito rápido. Muito bem atendido a bordo."
Cons: "Infelizmente o serviço de bordo não pode ser apreciado, mas entendo que é pela segurança dos passageiros."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "To drop the bag was very messy"
Pros: "All the staff was great."
Cons: "I was trying to upgrade for business and the front desk told me Can only be done 24 hours. What diferentes it makes if I paid in front desk or by the phone?"
Cons: "They don't come around with drinks very often on LATAM. We bought our startup supply at the airport. First drink round was two hours into the flight."
Pros: "The crew was very warm."
Cons: "Seats very tight."
Cons: "the cabin and seats are old and seems dirty"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable"
Pros: "Neat, polite and orderly. Great food!"
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Strange use of curtains upfront during flight. I was asked to check my carryon for free to help out with boarding, but then had to wait longer to get the bag in baggage claim. It was the last bag of my checked bags to show up. Checked carryon bags should have a higher priority to return."
Pros: "Friendly and correct cabin crew."
Cons: "Leg space. There was very little leg space. One hour before the flight departure they were already announcing 'last call' on the airport screens."
Pros: "This non-stop flight was wonderful. The aircraft is comfortable, the whole flight was smoothly, even though it's fifteen hours flight."
Cons: "Bad"
Cons: "They lost one of my bags. Amateur and inefficient company. Avoid at all cost."
Cons: "Cadeira dura"
Cons: "I couldn’t fly because at check in they asked me to pay for my 2 luggages and I couldn’t afford it so they let me out of my flight and now they don’t want to return my money. Worse airline I’ve ever seen. I’ve been flying international for 20 years and never saw a flight you have to pay for Luggage"
Pros: "Not much I can think of"
Cons: "Undisclosed charges for bags and a check on that lasted over 30 minutes and my entire family ogn6 people were scattered throughout plane with absolutely no effort to put young kids next to parents"
Pros: "Everything is amazing"
Cons: "Everyone"
Cons: "After getting off the shuttle to board the plane via stairs, men at the bottom and top of the stairs both stopped everyone and refused anyone to board. We were stuck on the tarmac for around 2-3 minutes. No entertainment options during the flight. No free food. Only water."
Pros: "Crew good, disembarking slow."
Cons: "A drink and/or snack."
Pros: "yo tenia comida kosher y no me la dieron"
Pros: "Confortable seats, flight on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant kept talking all night with two passengers. I could hear them even with ear plugs. When I finally was able to sleep, she didnt wake me up for breakfast even when I especifically asked to be awakened. And than replied that she wasnt able to wake me. Awful service for executive."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"
Pros: "The leg place and reclining chair"
Cons: "offering some free snacks and soda (3 hour flight, other than water, everything else is charged). An online entertainment system that actually works."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good, my device connected immediately, and the movie started right away (while the boarding process was being completed)."
Cons: "More vegetarian options in the menu."
Cons: "The temperature should be a bit warmer"
Cons: "Offer refreshments"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I liked the person I was sitting next to"

Pros: "Crew was extremely unfriendly"
Cons: "Better service. Train your people. Learn from azul airlines"

Cons: "less ignorant/greedy management"
Pros: "They were very kind!"

Pros: "I liked almost all!!!"
Cons: "The sandwich (cool meal)... The may improve it..."
Pros: "Said Paulo airport was chaos but flight was great"
Cons: "No entertainment. The airplane seems to be an older model."
Pros: "The crew was very kínd!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."
Cons: "Flight delayed well over an hour, Airport stuff unhelpful, Very below average."
Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was nasty, disordered. Bad experience"
Pros: "I would fly Latam again, good service and I saved a lot of money"
Cons: "Would like a lil bit more legroom"
Pros: "Wine and whisky"

6 hour delay with bad communication as to why

The agent at the check-in changed our seats to row 17, at the bulkhead for economy, and the two middle seats. I ALWAYS sit on the aisle, thus my wife had to crawl over someone to go to the bathroom. Four times a flight is not what a 73 year old women wants to navigate. The check-in agent wanted us to have more leg room...I understand her motive but, not a good idea. I had no option to decline. The food again on an international flight was a one out of ten. Since we were at the bulkhead the fold out tray was VERY unstable and my drink spilled (luckily, it did not spill on my neighbor or me). I refused breakfast. If I held a drink in my hand, I felt secure. If I put it on the tray, I felt VERY insecure. Both of the women stewardesses basicaly threw the drinks at me. Zero understanding of the problems of stability (ok, the plane was full and they had a lot of work to serve everyone, but a little understnding would comfort their clients). GRU to MIA is a short flight, and, the pilot did a wonderful job (takeoff to landing, 8 hours), absolutely no turbulence. Very clear communication from the flight deck. I will probably fly American again, ticket purchase was simple and the cost was quite good; wheelchair excellent both in GRU and MIA.

It was not that good. The AC of the the airplane was off for 30 minutes before it took of. When asked for it to be turned on, the flight attendant was completely rude and said that I would have the option to get off the plane if I didn’t like the situation. I thought it was disrespectful and unnecessary for him to act like that, especially when there were passengers that were tired and without sleep after an international flight.

Standard flight. Could be better by taking off on time and landing on time.

Pros: "I am no longer comfortable with airline seats, bad nerve in back of leg."
Cons: "Poor communication about “Red-tagging” carry on luggage"
Pros: "Nothing to write home about."
Cons: "Squished seats, mediocre food. Competitor deliver more for the same price or less."
Cons: "Economy basic on American is terrible."
Pros: "The crew was great, comfortable"
Cons: "I was on a long business trip heading back from India. The flight was delayed leaving India which would have made me miss my connection in London to Phx. Fortunately the flight from London to Phx was delayed (because it was delayed arriving into London) and I was able to make my connection. Especially when we had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, there is no way I would have made my connection. While I know there are reasons for the delays, it is frustrating. After a long week of traveling and 21 hours of flying- ones patience does run out."
Pros: "Boarding priority for infants"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad quality wise and some of the crew members were really short tempered drill Sargents who were in a very bad mood"
Cons: "Our second international flight was at lunch hour and all they offer was a biscuit (2 units per person)"
Pros: "Expensive, tight seats, They now charge extra if you want to sit by the window. Mediocre."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Avoid this airline like the plague. Never again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. At least I made it to DC but what the f. They made us board late and then told us to inboard and blamed the weather when other planes where just leaving they couldn't tell us they didn't want to work anymore and then 6 hours after we were able to board. Really bad."
Cons: "They should have offered food vouchers instead of the bad junk food they offered which wasn't enough to feed all the passengers plus the supposedly delay because of the weather was low when you could see planes leaving every half an hour."
Cons: "Crew should be trained again in basic stuffs."
Pros: "Used system wide upgrade to first class. Seat is spacious and comfortable. Mattress pad is a good addition."
Cons: "Crew member serving 1st class was bad, average business was class crew is much nicer and more helpful"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Need a polite crew"
Cons: "Nervous neighbors"
Cons: "Crew do not know what kind of menu they have. We had white fish moqueca, rice was uncooked. Moqueca was flavored Boarding was very confused, we bought premium economy, on advertising we could check-in on business class, no specific line for business or economic, only separated line for first clas"
Pros: "Everything went as expected. Overall a smooth flight and friendly service."
Cons: "Well, it's never comfortable to try to sleep in economy class, right? But I knew that going in, and that's what I chose."
Pros: "I liked the arts and craft show that was showing on the plane."
Cons: "As I came into the airport I went to a kiosk to check in and the attendant at the kiosk basically took over my passport and started pushing buttons that I never asked her to push. I eventually got my boarding passes only to find I wasn’t assigned a seat for the first flight and I will get it later at the gate. After getting through security my name was called for a extra security screening which I thought was interesting since I have Global Entry and am an American citizen. Weird. Because my name was called I had to get to the gate early. Upon arriving to the gate the gate agent confirmed I have extra security screening and she would assign my seat soon. After waiting some time she assigned me to a middle seat in the last row of the plane! After boarding someone came and sat next to me that was overweight and should have been charged for 2 seats. With such a long flight it’s the least American can do."
Cons: "Even on a big ole B777 you better upgrade to bigger seats"
Pros: "Crew sucked. Not helpful or caring."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. We waited several hours for another plane to come, and this flight was cancelled as well due to maintenance. We waited in line for 2 hours to be rerouted and now we can’t go out until tomorrow afternoon. We will miss 2 days of our vacation. Terrible experience"
Pros: "AA is always on time! Love the premium economy!"
Cons: "No entertainment and Wi-Fi was poor"
Cons: "Today’s flight was extremely cold. Almost everyone in the plan was under the covers at some point."
Cons: "On the first flight my husband and I each had a personal item and carry on that we carried on fine! We stopped in Charlotte for a lay over and we went to board the plane they told us our carry on was to big and had to be checked. This was very frustrating because we were just able to carry on this bag. We feel the planes are the same it shouldn't change from plane to plane."
Pros: "Entertainment, crew"
Cons: "Several flights were delayed and canceled on last minute."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Was informed when we checked in that the flight we had purchased did not exists. We were informed thatcher would have to wait 24hours (after an already 7 hour layover) to catch another flight to Los Angeles. After debating with customer servinge several times and being forced to wait in line after being told things were fixed several time we had to threaten to record conversations and had someone call American Airlines headquarters and finally was able to get in the flight the same night. We at work be point were laughed at by an American Airlines customer service professional. I had purchased upgraded seats since I’m over 6 feet tall and they were not able to accommodate on the new flight, the flight was horrible and I had ton stand up every hour to make I the whole 12 hours."
Cons: "After flying 24 hours one of four bags got put on a later flight. The line at baggage service was so long that by the time I waited for the bag it arrived on another flight 2 hours of wait! Unbelievable! Disappointing. And by the way if a passenger is assigned to a seat that doesn’t recline it should be heavily discounted. Heavily as in half price of a normal seat. It really is sad that airline industry is not more service focused and more efficient."
Pros: "The only decent point was the food. Not great but at least edible."
Cons: "Since check in in São Paulo was a complete chaos. There were only 2 people helping on check in (in machines) and these people were still not helping people (like me) with questions about on how to do check in in those machines. On the other hand to dispatch the bags there were almost 8 attendants to receive the bags. Ridiculous! I’ve tried calling American Airlines and Latam several times to assign a seat for me and they swore there were only middle seats but I know how airlines work to make extra money on these seats. At the end, they only gave me a middle seat option and I had to take I.t of course. On the plane I realized there were dozens of empty seats and yet they made sure not give them to me or anyone else. Unbelievable! Unfortunately I still have to use AA on my way back to Brazil. After this, I’ll chose another airlines for sure. Also, the 3,4,3 arrangement is ridiculous: there’s no corridor space making people touching you everything someone passes by your seat. And boy! Those seats are so uncomfortable and there’s no way to incline the chair so you can even have a little rest (because it’s impossible to even sleep on those seats). The crew were simply doing their jobs! No pleasure! No smile! No engaging with anyone unfortunately! They looked miserable and I asked for water and the flight attendant NEVER brought me anything. Seriously! Water is free!"
Pros: "Clean comfortable and on time"
Cons: "Seats and food"
Cons: "1hr delay"
Pros: "Dinner was decent"
Cons: "Breakfast seemed poor."
Pros: "Nice meals, attentive staff"
Cons: "24hrs delay and very poor communication from crew are not acceptable."
Pros: "During the time we were wkaiting for final decision on the flight delay I did not like any activity from crew and AA's emplyees."
Cons: "I understand some delays can occur due to tecnical problems and most of the times they are out of control but negative issues related to communications they are controllable and they must be reviewed and implemente properly."
Pros: "Lots of movie options."
Cons: "I didn't like anything else about the flight. My seat was broken and the seats are incredibly cramped! Absolutely no leg room whatsoever. I am 6 feet tall which is an average male height so I can't imagine how anyone taller fits in those seats."
Pros: "Customer service good. Offered food/service quickly."
Cons: "Film selection was subpar, and had no subtitles available. Flight safety information video so unbelievably boring. Flight crew repeated all instructions at least 3 times including video interruptions. What is the point of having in flight entertainment if crew will interrupt said entertainment at least once every 10 min to remind you you are still in turbulent air? Do they honestly think the passengers forgot? We are in the plane too! I understand they have to be careful due to liability but this airline is ridiculous. Believe it or not customers do not like being treated like children. Would not recommend to others or fly this airline again. Also, the lunch was awful even by airline standards. Btw the airline was avianca not AA. kayak must have messed up or they are owned by AA. AA is great and I recommend them wholeheartedly but Avianca is awful. Stay away if you can afford to do so."
Pros: "Used system wide upgrade to 1st class. Excellent service"
Cons: "bumpy ride"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Could have picked something better to show."
Pros: "Slept very well in business. Great crew!"
Cons: "Missed flight at london. Had to go to abu dhabi and Hyderabad. Very bad service"
Cons: "I did not fly I lost my flight they had a problem with the airplane on my flight from brasilia to sao paulo so I arrived late lost the connection to my other flight from Sao Paulo to LAX. Also they lost my luggage. LATAM and American Air Lines doesnt know where my luggage is. I arrived at my LAX 12 hours after. They still dont know where my luggage is"
Cons: "I had my reservation cancelled despiste numerous phone calls. The flight was operated by AA, and they told me I wasn't on the flight, but after many phone calls LATAN assured me I was booked on the flight. When I got to the airport, I was not allowed to board my direct flight from GRU to LAX, instead I was sent to Miami then Charlestown , I took me an extra 12 hours to get home. I lost a day of work. Who's going to reimburse me for that ???"
Cons: "The crew definitely needs to be changed. There needs to be hostesses who are more attentive and actually care about their passengers."
Pros: "2:30 h late!"
Cons: "Refer to above. Both flights were horrible."
Cons: "How does American think it can get away with a mediocre business class fitting and charge the same as Lufthansa and United? In this flight, the did recline 170º but formed a ramp that did slowly slide the passenger under the set in front of him. I'd recommend someone from AA should fly Lufthansa Business Class or Singapore Airlines Business to check out how it should be done! ANd then, flying a beaten up 777-200er while its competitors fly 787 is nonhing but a shame!"

The service was below average

They didn't allow me to board and they didn't refund me the luggage cost I have paid

Our favorite airline in the USA.

Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Got seated at row 2 so practically I was the first one to disembark. There's only one stewardess who took care of us and she did very well."
Cons: "The plane is so small that I don't have above head compartment so I had to put all my stuff under seat in front and I don't have space to put my leg."
Pros: "All great in Biz. class."
Cons: "When I bought the basic economy tickets and it felt like they intentionally on every flight had us in the same row but not next to each other. It was bizarre because in planes with 2 seats on each side they put us one on each side. Then they put us in the middle when there were 3 seats and separated another husband and wife in our same row. I an chose other airlines that seat us next to each other without paying 30$ more per seat per flight. I am a mileage plus card holder too."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning always takes a long time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "The flight itself was as good as expected: Attentive crew and competent pilot, good enough food, comfortable enough (for coach) seats, and clean airplane. The seats could be made to recline a bit more but nobody seems to be doing it for coach class."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes causing me to lose the connecting flight home by about 5 minutes There was no effort from United to help me to get the second flight on time or from the crew on that one to delay it enough for me to arrive. They suggested I waited 9 hours for the next available flight or to get one by AA in Reagan Airport in 3 hours. They told me that transportation to that airport would not be reimbursed and would cost between 20 and 40 dollars. I didn't know the airports were that far apart and the one-hour taxi drive cost me 80 dollars. From Sao Paulo to Washington, things went as well as expected. Once landed everything was horrible."
Cons: "Cabin too cold"
Pros: "late.............."
Cons: "late"
Pros: "Reliable way to get to Houston. Very short flight, so doesn't make sense to have food service besides the one drink they offer."
Pros: "Boarded on time. Smooth boarding. Departed on time. Landed on time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overbooked, delay in de-planing and getting luggage"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Food OK but to be expected. Entertainment good as per usual on United."
Cons: "My least favorite thing about flying to Dulles is getting on those ridiculous people movers to go to customs and immigration s. Creates a larger cluster of people at immigration and something else I have to wait on. Also - why is GRU already using buses for boarding 787s? The new terminal just opened three years ago-- missed opportunity."
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "Repairs caused a long delay, they kept us informed but it was a hurry up and wait forever"
Pros: "Good progress info in-flight from cockpit"
Cons: "TSA lines at SFO Terminal 3 are a zoo, precheck included. United gates had no facilities available to plug in a charger. C'mon folks, it's 2017, one wall outlet with two kids sprawled on the carpet next to it isn't enough. The 'grab a snack' box had one crumpled cellophane package of peanut butter crackers. Yum."
Pros: "It was excellent all way) thank you."
Pros: "The plane was clean, airy, comfortable, and not overbooked. The flight attendants treated me very well. Boarding was easy and the gate agent was extra pleasant."
Cons: "The flight attendants were downright rude to some of the other passengers, the ticketing agent had a nasty attitude and made for a very poor "first contact" experience with the airline. The front desk agents at the United Club in EWR were aggressively officious with a lot of the guests that day as well. Overall, customer service was very poor, even though the attendant on the flight were quite nice to me and gave me great service."
Pros: "At minimum you want to be sitting in economy plus."
Pros: "Everything was excellent just the landing was really rough"
Cons: "The landing"
Pros: "I am lucky to check-in earlier with United, staffs at counter is very nice and courtesy, he was able to book an earlier flight so I could catch up on time with my scheduled flight to China, I was boarding the United 9:45 but its departure was roughly around 11:15 am"
Cons: "Flight delay that could affect my international flight connection Which I had only 1:05 between flight"
Cons: "Flight was cold-air blowing that I could not turn off"
Pros: "Super friendly staff, everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very early in the morning We had to drive to Chicago to catch our flight to Sarasota. (Since our flight was delayed over 2.5 hrs) So since our car was in Chicago, we did NOT take the flight to Peoria."
Pros: "Flight was on time and punctual"
Cons: "The two air hostess were quite salty and unhappy with most passengers. Felt that all of were a burden - c'est la vie!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed multiple times, a layover that was only supposed to be 2 hours and 15 minutes turned into 4 hours I'm very disappointed"
Pros: "There were maybe two of the flight attendants. Who weren't rude. The rest well, I guess didn't like there jobs? I lost all my money for my first flight, because i was over 4 hours late. When i purchased a ticket from cheapo air, the person helping me was so nice. Unlike United airlines, or Viama. When i missed my flight that i paid $1,300.00, United said they'd give me another ticket for $4,000? This was a one time offer to redeem my $1,300 Viama said $10,500? I will only buy my tickets from cheapo air from now on."
Cons: "The flight attendants are very snotty, 2 out of the 18 I encountered were polite. The rest acted like they hated their jobs, and all the passengers. When you travel to another country they should have at least one person who speaks English. Can't really say much for the food, essentially requesting a vegetarian meal was out of the question, so i just starve. Drink some watered down booze, take a few dramamine and sleep. The layovers are ridiculous. 14 hours, 8 hours 4 hours? Good thing God made Beer and pizza."
Cons: "My flight to and from Phoenix was delayed both times in Denver. I did not have a layover scheduled on the flight down, but ended up being three hours late. The crew was very apologetic and said they were on their day off and got called in.On the return trip, the flight was a half hour late and I had to work the next morning. We arrived in Billings at 10:00PM."
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Pros: "Not much, although I was flying First Class, I waited 4 1/2 hours in a wheelchair at the gate, because of a delay. I believe I could've spent that time in the United Lounge, but noone offered to take me there."
Cons: "I do not appreciate spending several hundred dollars on a connecting flight with initially a 10 hour layover, and a delay of almost two hours."
Pros: "Aircraft with old decoration. Could not see a single smile from the crew."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The screen was frozen the whole flight."
Pros: "I like that they waited for me before they took off"
Pros: "The fact that I somehow actually made it to Ft Lauderdale"
Cons: "The plane caught on fire. This was after the copilot realized he didn't have the right license after we had all boarded and we had to sit and wait for a new copilot. This was after everything had already been delayed for maintenance. Get your act together, United!"
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Cat meowing loudly in seat in front of us"
Cons: "Seats are too close together. I could barely fit my knees in, and I'm not an overweight person."
Cons: "they canceled my flight and couldn't reschedule. I had to pay for a rental car and drive to my destination which has ended up costing me more money and the flight was already very expensive to begin with."
Pros: "Haven't made it"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Cons: "Weelchair service is bad"
Pros: "The duration of the flight - no stops"
Cons: "The food was poor, the airplane was an old one"
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely small. Being 6'4" it's a challenge to navigate to and from your seat. I was pleasantly surprised that I could fit in the seat."
Pros: "Great crew, nice aircraft to fly!"
