Pros: "On timeseats"
Cons: "Seats too narrow and short."

Cons: "Very poor internet"

Pros: "Crew kept a positive attitude, Moved passengers around if they wished so no one had to feel cramped."
Cons: "Half plane boarded. Mechanical problems. Every had to disembark. Hour delay before re-boarding. Then sat an extra hour waiting for crew to move plane for departure. Other airlines have offered discounts on future flights because of such delays. Alaska offered nothing. Overall, a 3 hour delay with lots of apologies."

Pros: "The staff is always super nice."
Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."

Pros: "There was nothing worth unliking. Helpful and Happy Staff alongwith a clean plane and punctual service. Thank you ! First and definitely not last experience :)"
Cons: "Good question"

Pros: "Awesome !"

Pros: "I'd like adequate leg room with the ticket already purchased. I'll need at least one bag. why am I paying again for bags? Food, a decent meal without being charged even more. seriously? I already bought a ticket, stop with the nickel and diming already."

Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"

Pros: "On time, service, food. It was first class but worth it."

Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."

Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."

Cons: "I did my checking on line..i got to the airport at 6 am, tried getting my board pass i couldn't. I made line to get help and they told me it was too late. That i had miss my plane!! It was supposed to leave at 7am i had enough time, they said no..had to purchase another ticket for the next day pay $300 more. My family who was at the airport said that flight was delayed by 45 minutes anyway..next day got there at 5am we board the plane and it was still late we were supposed to leave at 7am didn't leave till 7:35am...i am for sure never flying with Alaska airlines anymore..."

Pros: "Snacks were good and reasonably priced."
Cons: "Major issues boarding in Logan Airport - terminal way too small and very unorganized. Seats uncomfortable and tight. Staff was cold."

Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"

Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"

Pros: "Alaska airlines has got it together, probably the best airline company out there. Customer service, punctuality, comfort, baggage department are all top notch!!! I'm so glad they're in Philadelphia so I can come back to this tightly run ship after struggling with other airlines for years!!! My experience was AWESOME!!!!"

Pros: "The service was fine."
Cons: "On the airline website it said that flights to OC flew out of the international terminal but they don't. Then the flight took off 1/2 hour late at least."

Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"

Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."

Pros: "Service was excellent as always. I was cold and reluctant to say anything. Seemed like lots were asking for hot drinks and bundled up so the stewardess asked the pilot to crank up the heat. (No one had requested this!) At that moment I realized, many of us are afraid due to recent things on the news. I am a frequent and long-term traveller so if I felt it, you can be sure others do too. It is an industry problem, not your fault, but Alaska has to address it. Even if people don't know that they are angry or afraid, they are going to be reactive--aggressive or passive and/or resistant.... I would encourage you to bring the issue to the surface and remind your travellers on every flight that they can expect excellent service, pleasant responsiveness. Say something or do something that gets at the idea that the Alaska staff is protective of each passenger. One idea would be to have the stewardess remind people of the call light and encourage passengers to use it if they have any questions or concerns, or come see them in the back when it is safe to leave the seat."

Pros: "This was my first time on a plane in 25 years. Thank you for n o.k. rough turbalance and a smooth flight.."

Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."

Cons: "Baggage crew was so careless in loading bags onto plane. There were two bags and a car seat that were thrown and missed the conveyer belt and fell off the side."

Pros: "Efficient boarding and help in spite of the arriving plane being late."
Cons: "One of the three bathrooms was out of use and closed."

Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."

Pros: "I fly with Alaska Airlines a few times a year to visit my best friend and her family in Northern WA and I find that they are always on time (unless waiting on a plane to come in) and they're efficient to get people seated and ready for takeoff by the posted flight time. Always professional!"

Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."

Cons: "It's delayed for almost an hour!! Unacceptable!!"

Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"

Pros: "Leg room and large overhead bins. Offered to check our carry on at the check in counter for free."
Cons: "Suggest boarding the plane in 3 main groups instead of 2."

Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."

Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."

Pros: "It was decent"

Pros: "Great food selection, service was excellent, power outlets in the seat back is awesome!"

Pros: "We loved the crew on board our no frills flight. But we remember fondly those days when planes had more legroom, meals were complimentary, and in flight movies did not require rental of a player!"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Need free movies"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Should show free movies"

Pros: "I loved the humor of the hostess. I was originally booked on a later flight but the kind and helpful staff got me a earlier flight that got me home much sooner"

Pros: "Smooth flight, on time!"
Cons: "Lack of service from flight attendance"

Pros: "Social distancing, purell wipes were handed out, food and water handed out in a baggy."
Cons: "everything was great. I love delta."

Cons: "Baggage handling at Wilmington is extremely slow and typically is."

Pros: "My flight got delayed twice. Had to get rebooked."

Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"

Cons: "It’s time to update the snacks, bu thank you for serving more than just peanuts. I was very cold on the flight - unusual, but definitely very chilly."

Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."

Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"

Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"

Pros: "Excellent flight - smooth, comfortable seats (exit row with lots of leg room), in-flight entertainment was great, snacks and drinks served when I needed. Got to Cincinnati earlier than expected. Couldn't have gone better really."
Cons: "I will say the flight to Orlando including an upcharge of $100 for a bag that was 10lbs overweight. I was INCREDIBLY frustrated at the crazy price. I understand fees would apply to overweight bags but $100???? Kind of ridiculous"

Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"
Cons: "Contacting me before rebooking would have saved me $400"

Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Bathrooms were filthy"

Pros: "Clean plane. On time"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"

Pros: "First I don’t comment on these normally, but during our flight we had a medical emergency and the crew handled it with perfection. They kept a very calm atmosphere and handled passenger with great care and professionalism. I could not be more impressed."

Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."

Cons: "Seating poor — crowded and little leg room"

Pros: "Nice employees and service"
Cons: "Seat room"

Cons: "knees were jammed into the seat in front of me."

Cons: "delay"

Cons: "Terminal g18 is in the worst possible place. It is right smack in the middle of a food kiosk and restuarants with the ipad tables. You can't hear any announcements and boarding is just a cluster."

Pros: "Excellent attendants. Smooth boarding and on time flight."

Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Cons: "My husband is 6’ 4” tall so the seats on the CRJ-700 are a tight fit for him. Had some trouble with boarding passes not loading on the app and couldn’t select seats until we got to the gate."

Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"

Pros: "Arrived early. Got a beverage & snack which is becoming rarer with American carriers. Video selection was very good. Staff was nice and attentive. Overall a good flight at a reasonable price."
Cons: "Narrow corridor to seats"

Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."

Pros: "Air crew was excellent"

Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Too many announcements"

Pros: "crew was professional and seats werre comfortable. flight departed late but arrived on time."
Cons: "nothing to say."

Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."

Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time."
Cons: "After boarding everyone they made us wait for another plane to arrive to take passengers on our flight to Syracuse since we had many empty seats. The wait was way too long and completely unnecessary. Not only did they keep everyone on the plane for a long time but they made us very late."

Pros: "Anna from South Africa was funny, and super accomidatinf"

Pros: "Short flight."

Cons: "3 hrs delay My first fly was cancell Atl- Mty So ,they booking me next fly atl-Qro I have to stay weathing 9 hrs and just water and cookies"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The cheap seats were… well cheap. Not enough leg room"

Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."

Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."

Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."

Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "friendly flight crew"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"

Pros: "The plane got me & my family safely to our destinations. Easy & fast check-in."
Cons: "Flight delays on both departing & return flights to Los Angeles. Delta didn't offer any compensation for the delays. Crew was not very friendly especially on my return flight. The flight attendant couldn't even give me a bag of peanuts."

Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"

Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"

Pros: "Snacks included bananas."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag that fit within the size constraints."

Pros: "Clean comfortable plane, timely service by crew. Good,comfortable, economy seating in the A330 plane."

Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I get picky. Crew was awesome. Helpful and friendly. The wifi was horrendous and wouldn't connect"

Pros: "Just absolutely uneventful and quick."
Cons: "TSA"

Pros: "We ask for help with a 80 year old woman that needed assistance signed up for help o get her from one terminal to her next carnet flight no one accepted her."

Pros: "empty plane awesome"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"

Cons: "Either less stingybwith Basic Economy or take one less chance to repeat that it is basic."

Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "it was great!"

Cons: "Had abnormally long delays today!! Added 4.5 hours to my flight today"

Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude. First of all she doesn’t know how to enter India OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) information. She was keep saying I do not have a visa to go to India. Which I do not"

Pros: "Kept us waiting at gate for 5 hours, the boarded us, then canceled flight and asked us to deplane. Only gave one meal voucher for two days."
Cons: "After 2 hours of delay, cancel the flight and allow people to get sleep and give vouchers for 3 square meals as appropriate."

Pros: "Food and staff are great"
Cons: "Small space between seats"

Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"

Pros: "Booked via JustFly.com and I guess I did not read the fine-print. What seemed like a great deal – $475 USD for an off-peak round trip, LAX-LON-LAX, booked two months in advance – was not much cheaper, once I paid seat assignments and, new one on me, +$100 to check one non-cabin-sized bag each way."
Cons: "Please, don't bait and switch British Airways for American Airlines. I chose to fly BA for a reason, but outbound was AA. I know it's a tough job, tending to 300+ passengers on any trans-Atlantic flight, but AA comfort and courtesy were lacking. It was a different story flying home on my BA 747."

Cons: "A small meal would’ve been appropriate on this flight considering it was first class. Only thing offered was a cookie"

Cons: "The guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind.he is so nice person."

Pros: "Good first. Class seat"
Cons: "Lotsa turbulence, very hard to sleep"

Pros: "Timeliness and friendly staff. Arrived before scheduled time..."

Pros: "Flight departed on time"
Cons: "Personal from AA we're so rude when I asked about my seat change, AA didn't let me change seat but they charge for it on 2 credit cards"

Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"

Cons: "Flight to and from AL on American Airlines were both canceled - I was switched to Delta on the ‘to’ trip and stuck in AL another night on ‘home’ trip"

Pros: "Even thought we flew through a lot of turbulence and were kept buckled in for most of the flight, the plane was steady."
Cons: "I fly this route frequently. This was a smooth flight from start to finish. Good communication from pilot and attendants."

Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"

Pros: "Nice staff!"
Cons: "A bit bumpy!"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Plane malfunction resulted in delay, and missed connection. Rebooked connection flight was canceled. Now in day 2 of eaitingto get home."

Cons: "When I️ went to the gate to Ben seated they said there was overbooking, but 10 min before departure they allowed me to fly"

Pros: "The staff were nice and helpful."
Cons: "Internet sucks"

Pros: "Great staff. Arrived very early. Smooth flight ."

Cons: "It's snowing!"

Pros: "En general el proceso fue sencillo y el vuelo a tiempo."

Pros: "Free on board entertainment and arrived at same departure gate as my short connecting flight to West Palm Beach"

Pros: "Good price Good communications during delayed flight"
Cons: "It's nobody's fault but i have a Delayed flight"

Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."

Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."

Pros: "Flt on time. Arrived on time"
Cons: "A young child screemed constantly. Not sure how you would address. Have had kids so been there"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats were very small and very tight bags did not stow under seats like usual"

Pros: "Very friendly gate agents & Flight staff"

Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"

Cons: "Aa blows"

Pros: "Good food, good wine, good movie choice, Thank you."

Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"

Cons: "Had to cancel cruise but could not cancel flights without paying fees that were half the fare price. Would have been cheaper if we bought direct from the airline."

Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane literally falling apart. Delayed 4 hrs on board before the flight was cancelled altogether. Told it happens ALL the time. We got 2 hrs of sleep at a hotel about 40' away from the airport. Lousy job! Missed a wedding."

Pros: "Nothing, I missed my flight bc of lack of paperwork and information from the crew"

Pros: "It got there on time!"
Cons: "I would never fly with them again, the staff were rude and you must pay for everything, at least let people us the WiFi"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Flight was very timely (boarding, getting everything ready for take off, & getting to destination & off flight quickly)."
Cons: "Flight attendants in back of plane were rude on several occasions. I'm pregnant & had an almost 2 year old in my lap. I was only given one pretzel & not offered any drink for my son or me. We had 4 people in our row (including my son in my lap), when I let my son walk down the aisle I noticed rows with only 1 person. Flight crew should of asked if someone wanted to move for more space. They ran over the guy's foot across the aisle from me & were rude about it."

Pros: "Arrived 25 min EARLY for a change!"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "There was a ton of turbulence"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed and then cancelled. We were given new flights the next day 8/20/16 and that was delayed for a few more hours. We wasted a day and a half at the airport and our hotel for the first night could not be refunded."

Pros: "I like that I was finally able to come home"
Cons: "The United Airlines reps could have shown some empathy to the passengers who were delayed. The arline knew we had connecting flights and could've alerted the other flight that we were there and to wait on us. The connecting flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50. I arrived at the gate at 9:49 only to find that the flight had not only boarded but had already left. The reps at the counter showed no level of empathy and acted put out when asked to provide transportation to the reassigned gate. Lastly, the flight could've offered something more than a $10 food voucher, especially since the majority of the food in the airport is greater than $10."

Pros: "Best Airline."
Cons: "Nothing, flights are always great in my experience with United."

Cons: "Plugs would be nice. Food isn’t great and drinks are more expensive than other airlines"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"

Pros: "The checking kiosk with luggage check-in, weight station and automated ticket printing for boarding pass and luggage tag. Security checkpoint was smooth and moving fast. All above have vastly reduced stagnant check-in line at the check-in counters."
Cons: "Need more properly trained ground crew at baggage drop point (which is also the previously check-in counter) to ease the line and expedite the check-in. Also need more notification billboard along the long line to better inform the passagers what to expect at the security checkpoint."

Pros: "for economy on an American carrier it was fine."
Cons: "American carriers just aren't as good at international as non-american carriers. Seats/food/entertainment/overall experience just not as good. Pick an international carrier when you can"

Pros: "We were early. We sat together"
Cons: "Too strict on check in baggage weight"

Pros: "Smaller plane was awesome. Flight service great. Checkin easy."
Cons: "We are okay with seat area but would ask that united freeze seat backs. The inconsiderate bumpkins in front of us put seat back and then leaned forward the whole flight. we could not even put our tray table all the way down. Coke spilled all over us in turbulence as liose tabke bounced significantly more than if set in place. Give people rude, freeze saet so cant recline or remove tray tables so we dont hurt ourselves due to rude people."

Pros: "Safe travel"
Cons: "Cramped and warm"

Pros: "Flight was on time, even a little early. Bags came out quickly at destination."
Cons: "Crowded seats. Too many people bringing huge bags on board even when crew kept asking them to check them. Customs was very long in DC. It would have been nice to been made aware of dowloading customs app before deplaning. It would have saved a huge amount of time."

Pros: "I like that I was added to the upgrade list. I used to loathe flying with United because the staff and crew were simply terrible. They were rude, unhelpful and could care less about what you needed. However, since that unfortunate incident of dragging that poor man off the plane a while back, you all have been trying very hard to get your butts in gear and do better and I see it. Keep improving the training is employees and I’ll be proud to fly with you all again."
Cons: "However the list is so long and not realistic that anyone will ever actually get upgraded. Im usually number 40 or higher and there are often maybe 4-6 actual upgrade seats. Guess it’s just a way to let everyone one where they stand so I gets it snktball awful."

Pros: "No complaints."

Pros: "Fast and friendly staff from check in to landing. Southern folk don’t rush you and actually listen to consumers concerns."
Cons: "None...nice, short flight"

Pros: "Landing safely"
Cons: "I upgraded to a seat right at the front. Still ended up in boarding group 3, no room for my overhead luggage so I had to put it half way back on the plane. My $45 upgraded seat wouldn’t recline because it was broken and I still had to pay to have a bad checked. Oh, and the flight attendant simply said “ok” when I informed her of my seat malfunction."

Pros: "Check in, arrive ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No entertiment, no snack only little bag of pretzels"

Cons: "We were delayed by more than 6 hours."

Pros: "The FC Cabin is very comfortable; The service was also excellent"
Cons: "The food was mediocre"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Terrible food. Cramped, uncomfortable seats. No in-flight entertainment, app did not work."

Pros: "First and foremost, our flight arrived 25 minutes early! Nuff said!"

Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"

Pros: "We got there safely with our stuff."
Cons: "The stupid led by the unwilling."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I got ripped off I paid in advanced and gave all my information to them in Dallas and they told me I am not in there system so I could not fly home i had to take the grey hound at the last minute"

Pros: "The flight seemed a little more steady and more drinks were offered."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was a little better, but when it came time for me to use the restroom, the flight attendant was quite rude. I explained I had been waiting for the past 2 hours but she didn't seem to care. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."

Cons: "Cost me extra night hotel and meals."

Cons: "my daughter and I didn't even have seats together...and the plane was not full. We spent $69 and $77 to get seats together and the seat backs didn't work, no TV screens, and my expensive purse was soaking wet when I retrieved it from under the seat. So gross. And of course the food was gross...but that's to be expected, I guess."

Pros: "Roomy space. Nice staff"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "There was no type of entertainment and the plane was small. I thought it would have been bigger"

Cons: "Issues with crew delayed the flight. I was further delayed getting to my destination because they forced me to check my bag."

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The 737-700r seating is really close when you have 3 big guys in the same row"

Cons: "Comfort, service.., terrible'"

Cons: "3 hour delay."

Pros: "So grateful the flight waited for us because our flight was delayed because of mechanical problems. The take off and landing were great and flight attendants Were great also. Snacks were marginal but served with a smile!"
Cons: "Snacks and that our previous flight was delayed and the stress of not knowing if we would make our flight"

Pros: "It waz awesome"

Pros: "Great view. My wife and 3 year old's seats were separated and I had bought a ticket on this flight home at the last minute so my seat was quite far away. The gate agent went above and beyond by loving some people and putting all three of us together!"

Pros: "I had a terrible time flying from IAH to Pensacola with United. I was flying on Christmas Day and there were not enough employees from United to help the customers. One of United employees completely disregarded me when I needed help, and I ended up missing my flight."
Cons: "S"

Pros: "Due to weather delays "not able to accommodate" Service representative had an attitude. I understand there are a lot of issues, but it's their job in customer service and if anyone should be upset it should be the customer for not being able to make their flight as scheduled."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "My flight was on time. I appreciate that."
Cons: "Narrow seats. Literally no leg room for me. It was a terrible time for me, especially since I was in the middle seat."

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The food was not satisfactory. Soon after take-off everyone received a skimpy packet of breadsticks. A while later a meal (lunch) was served. It was very good. Many hours later everyone received a packet of pretzels, etc. About an hour before arrival everyone received a sandwich in a plastic wrap. It was close to inedible. Beverage service was very good. However, the amount of food served was unacceptable. This seemed like a budget flight. Very different from the flight to Europe on a Lufthansa plane. This was on a United plane. Will make me think twice about flying to Europe on a United plane."

Cons: "Flight was delayed not enough information. Missed connection."

Cons: "I was flying from Pittsburgh to Chicago to Fairbanks. My flight from Pittsburgh was delayed. My connecting flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was in the very next gate. But as I exited my first flight, my connecting flight pulled away from the gate. I was extremely disappointed."

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, very firm, back of seat was like leaning against a piece of wood. OK for this short flight, longer flight would have been extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "Has aisle seat so I could stretch one leg."
Cons: "Was crammed in the back with not enough knee room. I'm not overweight, (5'11", 200 lbs) people (including flight attendant kept banging into me as they went past. 1 flight attendant (middle-aged man) obnoxious. Lots of empty seats in the "economy plus" section, once flight was in motion...attendant refused to let anyone move. United obviously shortened up the leg room and space towards the back of the plane to make room for "economy plus" then just left those seats empty when passengers refused to pay the additional $170 (what obnoxious flight attendant said) to sit there. I will look for other carriers..."

Cons: "On a flight as long as this one was it should have included FREE use of the movies, TV shows, the entertainment feature ."

Pros: "Got $200 voucher for overbooking"
Cons: "Overbooking"

Pros: "Same as above"

Cons: "Could not get seat assignment 24 hrs in advance. Website said see desk. Phone call to United said pay more $ get a seat. Had to check in twice, once with bags...still no seat...wait in line again at gate for seat."

Pros: "Good Speedy trip very awesome Pleasant helpful people"
Cons: "when I suggested window seat I thought I would have it throughout the entire flight that was pretty much the only disappointing thing about the whole trip"

Pros: "I love how amazing the crew & especially the pilot handled An unexpected emergency stop during the take off. A+++ I felt comfortable and not stressed with what was being done to work things out. A huge thanks to them !!!!!"
Cons: "How shitty some of the passengers were to the crew and what was happening ."
