Flight Review

Feb 3, 2020

Flew United. Did not like the fact that you could not take carry on. Had a duffle bag that had to be checked and cost me $30 each way. Probably could have left a few things home and got by but it was a little confusing. Talked to others on flight and they agreed.

Change the price if your flights and add a free bag

The usual, more leg room and seating space.

The Delta staff were very pleasant & helpful. Enjoy flying on Delta.

Space is tight. If your carry on has wheels they'll probably have you check it

Sep 25, 2019

Wheel chair attendants were very timely and friendly!

Jun 9, 2019

The staff was on fire, the whole crew was killing it with energy and upbeat attitudes!! If all my flights were like this one I would be flying all the time. The inflight crew made me feel at ease and calm even though the plane was having issues with its brakes.

Oct 23, 2018

Sat for a long time on taxiway waiting for gate to open. Had to run across airport. The plane is in the air for 2 hours. Shouldn’t be hard to find an open gate.

Oct 4, 2018

Tiny plane but not a full flight so we were able to spreadout.

Sep 17, 2018

Didn’t feel like in flight service was not personalized enough. I was so thirsty and did not feel comfortable asking for more .

  • Have your boarding pass and travel ID easily accessible. They'll be the first things you'll be told to produce by airport security.
  • Be aware that metal belt buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you're wearing one, you may be told to step back and take it off before continuing.
  • Ensure your laptop, phone and other electronic devices are within easy reach. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine in separate bins.
  • When it comes to traveling with liquids or gels, all passengers are permitted a quart-sized clear zip-lock bag to transport containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Untie your shoelaces as you approach the body scanner. Depending on the sort of shoes you're wearing, security may instruct you to remove them.
  • Stash any pocketknives or other sharp metal items inside your checked luggage. Security won't allow such things in carry-on baggage.
