Pros: "The crew and timeliness of this airline is hard to beat!"
Cons: "Had the exact same meal on both of our flights. Flight from Seattle was one hour late in departure."
Pros: "I wish I didn't have so many lay overs to go Kiev from Anchorage. Long flights no longer have free meals or drinks."
Cons: "At least one less lay over. I didn't have a good experience because SOMEONE, either Alaska Airlines or Ukraine International lost my baggage! I hope to get it back today!"
Pros: "Great food vegetarian options and they gave us nice things like blankets and pillows and slippers and a toothbrush."
Cons: "More options for movies/tv in English"

Cons: "Flight was canceled with no notification."

Cons: "Crowded plane TBH lmao...But overall thal I can REALLY complain about."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Nothing. Perhaps the airline model."
Cons: "Virtually everything. I will never use CE or most likely any Chinese airline ever again. Oh ya. Shanghai is a shithole."
Pros: "Although we were a little behind schedule to leave Seattle, the flight crew thoroughly explained the delay to us and got us on the way as soon as they could."
Pros: "We were flying international and bags were checked through to our final destination AND AA did not charge us for our checked bags because it was booked as part of an international ticket. (which I didn't learn before flying so it was a pleasant surprise, most airlines want to charge you for the domestic leg of your flight)! They allowed us to board early and were very accommodating for our family of 7. I finally figured out the in air entertainment on our devises, which didn't seem to work on our previous flight. Snacks were minimal."
Pros: "Pre-check, loaded and landed on time. Great pilot on the way home back to O'Hare. All flight attendants were super to work with...no hassles/problems."
Cons: "No pillows for 6.25 hour flight:("
Pros: "Pilot information/announcements."
Pros: "For the most part everything was good"
Cons: "The plane was small and the guest in the seat next to me occupied his seat and made himself comfortable enough to extend himself into my space as well. I paid for my seat and didn't expect to have to share it with anyone else. It made the three hour flight a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "NA. Alaska Air is definitely a great company"
Pros: "Roomer seats didn't feel cramped or jamed in."
Pros: "My first time flying alaska and it was fine. Probably the best part was that everything was on time. I gave zero stars for food and entertainment because there was none. I was happy they were considerate of people who wanted to sleep during the flight since it was overnight."
Cons: "For such an expensive long overnight flight there was no food, and I had a 5 hour layover."
Cons: "Pressured to change seats. Promised rebate for next flight, but haven't received email. I have Crohn's disease and didn't want to be moved from the aisle and away from the bathroom, but I was embarrassed to explain that to the large group of people at the counter, so I moved."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful and thank you for making it a positive experience."
Pros: "I love how prompt, if not always early, your boarding and flights were/are. While you're crew on all the flights weren't effusively warm they were all polite and cordial enough. Over all I would very much like to fly Alaska Air again, partially because it would mean I'd get to see my newfound boyfriend in Alaska again as well. Thanks for everything, and keep up the great work!"
Pros: "Everything great."
Pros: "Having a place to plug in our iPhone and large luggage compartments. The airplane was very comfortable."
Pros: "We did not have any food on the plane, so I can't rate it. The fruit pack looked like a good choice someone had near me. The price of the food seems cheap compared to how much they charge to eat in the airports"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable for long trips and red eye flights. If I was able or knew better, I would've flown first class."
Pros: "Charging station in the seat"
Pros: "Had found out that when I had booked my flight...I had a whole day layover in Portland. Alaska Airlines was accommodating in changing that flight for me for low charge. Was very please with that customer service"
Cons: "Seats are small as hell in Coach. Makes you want to fly first class"
Pros: "The boarding process was good... and we got in early."
Cons: "The food was expensive. And no entertainment system."
Pros: "They were there when needed and got the whole party to the destination through TSA, and to the connecting flight gates after we landed. We were seated in the back of the plane, had a very short layover, and had to get from gates "N" to "D". Not being familiar with the airport, we probably would have missed our flights, had it not been for our "airport guide". If you can get your carry-on luggage checked for free, (only offered when the flights are full) this is an awesome service!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Flight was smooth and on time. Didn't purchase food or entertainment. Ate prior to the flight. Seats are very cramped in coach area. I'm not a big person but the guy beside me was and spilled over into my space. Uncomfortable! Upgraded to first class for the next leg of my trip."
Pros: "Flights good"
Cons: "You annoying for sending these all the time so you going to keep getting this unless you stop"
Pros: "Employees were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seating was pretty cramped. Food and entertainment not applicable."
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: "Quiet plane. Crew was genuine, and interested. Trip was on time. These simple services, done with a smile exceeded my expectations, which is sad but deeply appreciated."
Cons: "Seats are too small. I am 6'6" and there is not enough legroom. I don't like paying extra for baggage, and pretzels are not food."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time!"
Cons: "Lack of service from flight attendance"
Pros: "Was a last min flight always enjoy flying with Alaska no fuss and great service! Thx"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Got the captions to take a picture with flat Stanley for my little cousin."
Pros: "You need a not applicable option, as I did not partake in the food and there was not entertainment on this short flight. Quick flight! Arrived early!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, and their newer planes are really streamlined, but this wasn't one of them."
Cons: "The actual food they offer was sub-par or unavailable. Bring your own."
Cons: "1. I sat at a window seat watching baggage handlers look at my bags with the fragile stickers all over both of them, then purposely flip them upside down and slam them on the conveyor to plane. Once I got to midland and opened my bags my boxes of Business supplies were damaged to the point that they have to be thrown away. If I could have insured my bags I would be suing Alaska airlines for the replacement of my damaged items, and the firing of the handlers that did the damage, including the loss of of money that I couldn't make because I couldn't do my job. 2. I informed stewardess that I was recovering from a dislocated shoulder and asked for a pillow or something that I could rest my arm on, that never happened and I had to sit for hours on the fight in discomfort and pain all the way. Thanks for making my flight a comfortable one. 3. I wasn't allowed to purchase anything on any flight with the cash in my pocket, including Wi-Fi / entertainment. Because I didn't have a credit card. This is a foul idea your company has. My cash should have been efficient enough. It is legal tender anywhere in the world but your airplanes. In my opinion I feel that your airlines suck and owes me the amount of 135.00 for the replacement of the items damaged, plus the amount of the tickets I paid for because I didn't receive the services in which should have been courteously given by your company. And apologies for that crappy treatment of me and my property. Just because I'm not one of your gold members or a credit card holder or first classed passenger shouldn't give your employees the right to treat anyone this way. I flew all the way from Alaska to midland to do a job and couldn't do it on time because of this treatment and damage. What would you do if this happened to you? Would you feel satisfied with how your company handles its PAYING CUSTOMERS???"
Pros: "Felt a bit dupped. Alaska is amazing. This flight was run by American. I hate flying American. Rude personnel. Older seats. Ugly terminals. Gaps for our feet were not set below the chairs evenly. I had the middle seat but my floor space went into what should have been the aisle seat's space. I felt bad for the guy. Chair support landed right were his foot would have naturally slide forward."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and plane wasn't overbooked, which was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, which was inconvenient!"
Pros: "clean plane - timely - good crew - flight rough but pilot was communicative about it. Arrived on time. could not have been better"
Pros: "Plane arrived on time"
Cons: "Disorganized baggage claim. Someone pulled my bags off to the side and here I was looking at the carousel. Not very organized."
Pros: "It was super short. The hostess was super nice."
Pros: "Helpful attentive staff. Clean plane. Smooth landing."
Pros: "Flight crew was ok and boarding was really quick"
Cons: "Terminal 2 security at LAX is awful and inefficient Also plane had a malfunctioning switch and it took them 1.5 hrs to fix while we are on the plane. This was 1.5 hrs delay on a 58 minutes flight. :("
Pros: "Crew, chairs, entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."
Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"
Cons: "Got a stiff neck cause the seat would not go back. Makes it difficult to see the entertainment with my progressive lenses"
Cons: "Cabin was too hot!!!!"
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Pros: "Great service by crew!"
Cons: "Took too long to get on board."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and then they underestimated the time to de-ice."

Pros: "Got an upgrade to econ comfort"
Cons: "WIFI wasn’t working. USB charging port wasn’t working either"
Pros: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."
Cons: "The crew was late so we were delayed two hours. I find that extremely infuriating when you are a passenger and have to show up two hours before your flight. I also would lose my job if I was two hours late for a client."
Cons: "My flight got delayed for twelve hours with no compensation for a hotel."
Pros: "customer siervice was great and welcoming was awesome"
Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"
Pros: "On time departure; good updates by flight deck; luggage arrived unscathed."
Cons: "Once beverage service was complete, flight attendants retreated to the back of the plane. On a 4-hour flight, it would have been nice to have someone come by and ask if we needed anything, such as water, coffee, or juice. Granola bar was good."
Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, boarding went smooth and flight was on time... No complaints!"
Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."
Pros: "Polite and thoughtful crew took care of our needs. Beverage service came through at least twice. Crew persevered through difficulties with the in-flight entertainment system and finally got it to work for us. :)"
Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down."
Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."
Pros: "Clean & modern aircraft Comfortable seat Proactive customer service"
Cons: "Delayed departure (due to Air Traffic Control) Finding my bag damaged on arrival More refreshments would have been nice"
Pros: "Tv on flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant skipped me for drinks"
Pros: "Got a window seat, my luggage arrived with me"
Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."
Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."

Pros: "Great staff, quick service."
Pros: "Entertainment. Center was great"
Cons: "Boarding has been made so complicated it's a joke."
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Staff is ticketing were unhelpful in straightening out Boarding process. I ask for help and the agent came over and read the computer screen to me as if that was all he was there for."
Pros: "Just to clean the cabin a bit more and the folding table tops. thanks!"
Cons: "The fact that seats could not be reserved ahead of time. Having them assigned at the gate is illogical and does not reward the passengers who reserve / check ahead of time. Additionally, it creates unnecessary rush at the gate."
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"
Cons: "Boarding. Was late because 1- airplane arrive about 10 minutes late and 2-have to wait passengers coming from Orlando."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. I was in general boarding but I was still disappointed with the seats. Hard to stay comfortable during a 3 hour flight. Cabin temperature was a bit cool for my liking."
Pros: "Row to myself"
Cons: "First class seats were uncomfortable for a 6.5 hour overnight flight."
Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"
Pros: "Very funny, added comedy to the flight. Great!"
Pros: "Aisle seat; leaving on time"
Cons: "Sat next to family with 3 small children; kids and parents did very well. Wished Delta could have arrange for family to have 3 seats together. Would have been family friendly."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I would like the formal return of beverages and snacks. I understand the lack thereof is due to the virus. I think the airlines are doing a good job of staying within safety recommendations."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Pros: "Crew members were all very pleasant and personable. A very special experience with the local ticket agent / boarding agent (double duty) in Guadalajara: Maria Hernandez (or perhaps Fernandez) who was pleasant, professional, helpful and even called us respectfully by name ("Mr. and Mrs. Petrusek") She is an outstanding representative of American Airlines! Gracias to her!!"
Cons: "Not a thing! We live in Mexico and we usually fly Volaris...I think AA just became our favorite airline!"
Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO. I’d have appreciated more of a heads up than as I’m boarding."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything at all"
Cons: "They have to add electronic devices or charge plug on it"
Pros: "Really disappointed as my bags was not check thru.It was rechecked at London and British airway charged me for my baggage. I want to make sure that my way back to Oslo London London San Diego has no charge . It is an international flight and I am allowed 23kg one checked bag ."
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helpful"
Cons: "Did not fly out of Ontario, I was being led to fly out of LAX since there was a delay. Ended up flying out of John Wayne Airport."
Pros: "We missed out connecting flight. We landed at 730am our connecting flight was supposed to leave at 750 it actually left at 744am"
Cons: "Our connecting flight left early"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival. Comfortable journey. Our pilot was a woman! Go girl power!"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work. You couldn’t download the American Airlines app. The crew forgot to give me my complimentary drink. After attempting for 10 minutes, Gave up."
Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"
Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."
Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."
Cons: "Delay, first told it was weather related, then mechanical. Re booked on a flight by AA that would never make connection. Paid over $1,000 for a flight leg that one way and direct on another airline (Alaska air) was $281.00 and the agent took so long to find redirect flight that they couldn't book. Total mess! While struck on the second leg and speaking with AA customer service about the reschedule I was told that they didn't have the ability to rectify the error because they no longer had control of my ticket and that I had to take into consideration that three was an event in San Antonio that caused delays network wide that added tio the initial issue... HOGWASH! 1) it was another AA issue where an AA aircraft drive of the runway while I was in flight on the first errant leg. 2) if they had just been straight from the outset, I wouldn't have been delayed. I will never fly AA AGAIN!"
Cons: "Ct for. R"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Cons: "Nearly being bumped off the flight. A tight, uncomfortable seating space."
Pros: "It wasn't as terrible as the 1st leg of the return flight"
Cons: "Bad enough the long part of my trip ove seas had no wifi but then the 4 hour domestic flight did not have it either. I had planned to put my flight time to good use and catch up on work so i did not go back to a mountain of work but that never happened. Also, I've never been to an airport where you exit the boarding doors in the terminal then head down stairs to the tarmac to board a bus that make a complete lap of the terminal going near every AA plane obviously trying to figure out which one they need to drop us off at. If can get this close to losing people I now understand how luggage gets lost so often."
Cons: "Ear headphone jack would not turn down, you could hear the show from three seats away and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her for some different headphone to see if it would help. She acted like I was stupid and said "well did you turn it down?" Of course I tried that. I was very taken back by how she acted."
Pros: "The FA was great, she was always checking on us and ensured we were taken care off."
Cons: "The seats were old and didn't recline. The food basket is a joke as it mainly has snacks for mid day or evening flights. Popcorn isn't a breakfast time snack."
Pros: "Quick service. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "The gate attendants were professional and the flight attendants were very good. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "i had my boarding pass and chose my seat some time ago, in row 4. When I checked in, the AA representative switched my boarding card and I was told that my seat was no longer available. When I got to the gate, I spoke to the gate attendant. There were several people also speaking to them about their seats. I did not have a seat assigned to my boarding pass, so I stood until the entire plane boarded and the gate attendants could sort things out. In the end, I was given a seat at the back of the plane, even though booked my seat some time ago and am a Sapphire member. When I boarded, there was no room for my carry-on luggage. The flight attendant already understood what happened. She immediately took my bag, and found a space at the front of the airplane. This is the second disappointing flight in a row in 2 weeks I have had with AA. I'm not sure if it's just bad luck, or has something to do with the company. I had flown with U.S. Airways for years and never experienced any major issues."
Pros: "Mechanically safe Entertainment monitor and USB charging"
Cons: "Loading up a plane to sit in for >1.5 hrs waiting for a pilot and de-icing rushed service"
Pros: "Nothing. THis airline is the pits. Stay far far away."
Cons: "Everything. Desk agents are rude and unhelpful, airlines break regularly, flights always delayed, baggage always lost, awful."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and the in-flight movie was great!"
Cons: "A teenager sitting behind me kept putting her feet and knees at the back of my chair making it very uncomfortable for me the entire flight."
Pros: "On time and no issues"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Nice crew, plane was decent"
Cons: "Delayed waiting on a crew person to get to the airport to fly to Dallas. We had to wait an hour at the gate. They didn't tell us what the delay was for until we had been waiting 30m."
Pros: "No accountability -- just a recording telling me my flight was being rebooked and I would arrive 14 hours later than scheduled on New Year's Eve. Totally unacceptable, awful service."
Pros: "From start to finish the flight faced problems: unscheduled stop for refueling, change in planes for mechanical problems, emergency medical intervention, and more. Yet at every stage the flight crew and gate staff did an outstanding job communicating and seeking to alleviate passenger woes. With delays, we missed connections, and yet AA worked wonderfully to find alternatives. At the end of the day, we arrived at our destination, and even our luggage made the trip successfully! Wonderful courtesy, adaptability, and determination to serve. Thank you."
Cons: "There was a snow delay in Chicago, but nobody offered assistance when we were on the ground. We felt abandoned by American Airlines because we asked three different people for assistance and they didn't seem to want to take on the problem. They were like Pontius Pilate, and "washed their hands" of us!!!"
Pros: "Good experience."
Pros: "On the way there, it was a newer plane in nicecondition, comfortable, entertainment was ok."
Cons: "AA IOS app - always problems getting the mobile boarding passes. This time is just like every other. Never a problem before with US Air or Southwest Food - There and back, sandwiches and non-snack items were sold out by the time crew could get to the rows in the back Plane on the way back was a certified POS. Seats were ancient and broken, Engine couldn't start - twice, and no entertainment"
Cons: "The scheduled departure time was moved forward, thus creating confusion and inconvenience."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"
Pros: "I don't usually complain, and I have never responded to this kind of rating request, but, the American Airlines flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Phoenix was too inept to ignore. Firstly, I wasn't assigned a seat when I booked the flight. Then, at the time I checked in, as no regularly priced seat was reserved for me, I was forced to pay for a premium seat, for both the outbound and inbound segments. Secondly, no snacks were offered on the outbound flight, because "the ground crew forgot to supply the plane". This didn't bother me, but it did infuriate some of the other passengers. Finally, I paid for the GoGo inflight internet, but the download speed was sooooo slow, I finally gave up."
Pros: "Crew was nice and professional. It was an early morning flight and I was given the right surroundings to sleep."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight. I couldn't even find a headphone jack. The seats and aisle are too narrow. After landing early we had to wait 10-15 minutes on the taxing because the gate was occupied"
Pros: "Staff always amazing."
Cons: "Everything was good overall."
Cons: "Need power outlets at seats."
Pros: "Nice new interior"
Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."
Pros: "I was happy to finally receive a drink one the flight started. A waterbottle at the seat and not other service would have been nice. Wifi was not working. The seats were small and cramped. My seat did not stay either up or down...it kept moving around and would not stay adjusted. However the crew was fantastic and our two female pilots were amazing. Captain Amy touched down in Phoenix was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced."
Pros: "I didn't get dragged of a flight due to overbooking. So that is always a positive."
Cons: "United needs to add more entertainment options to all of their flights. Virgin, JetBlue have done this. Why can't United? You have record profits, invest it in inflight experience."
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: "Overall very good. Friendly staff and timely arrival and departure"
Cons: "More leg room (on first flight) and drinks with ice!"
Pros: "The Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant I had to wait so long to be seated because no wheelchair was available then I had to sit in the rear of the plane I'm physically disabled I had no leg room and my knees were in pain the whole flight then after landing I had to wait 20 to 25 minutes to get off the plane I'm still recovering from that but keep the attendance they were the highlight of my experience"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "seats were a little less shitty but still shitty"
Cons: "Everything. United made no apologies."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "No comfort. Should have picked my seat."
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "passengers being physically sick next.to me"
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Flight price."
Cons: "The service, accommodations, cleanliness, organization from the airline (multiple delays and two gate changes), comfort of seats, & entertainment options were all undesirable. I tend to only fly United when I have no other options. This experience was exactly what I expected from the airline. However, I was traveling with my mother this trip and wish I would've spent the money to fly a different airline."
Pros: "Flight was early!"
Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me and was able to have some more comfort on the 5 hour flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, very frustrating as we were already arriving at midnight."
Pros: "Was impressed w the new plane"
Cons: "Overhead storage a little small"
Pros: "On time, clean newer plane"
Cons: "No entertainment options, were promised free wifi to watch superbowl at the gate only to be told later there were ZERO options for entertainment, no tv, movie or wifi let alone free."
Cons: "There was a lot of empty seats but the crew never offer the guy seating next to us to move. His elbow kept hitting the buttons and turned on the tv screen while I was trying to sleep. I saw he went to ask one of the crew but was told to wait until flight takes off then no one helped him after. Flight was bumpy most of the time..not a very happy customer"
Pros: "That's it was fast and organized"
Pros: "Kayak e mails on gate changes and such"
Pros: "I liked the coffee."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least 45 minutes, making me miss my connecting flight. After that I had to wait 7 hours for the next available flight. Also the connecting flight was all the way on the other side of the airport. No one at the airport would help with directions to the next boarding area."
Pros: "Took off on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. I didn't have any food."
Cons: "I was very cramped. The 2 guys beside me were squished. The plane was 3 seats on both sides."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants & the pilots kept us posted on everything which made me feel extra comfortable!"
Pros: "i didnot like any thing"
Cons: "they cancle the flight time so meny and i got other flight cancled"
Cons: "Delayed departure, changed gate."
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to malfunctions and then cancelled and we had to board another plane and wait two hours the arrival time in the destination to Phoenix was 3 hours later than anticipated"
Pros: "As I had stated in the first part of the survey the crew members were again very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "I was surprised at how little space there was for a taller person & again the price's for the food & beverages I thought was very pricey for the average person."
Pros: "-Flight Departed On Time From Newark To Phoenix Sunday 1/3/2016. -Flight Arrived 30 Minutes Early In Phoenix AZ. -United A.L. Fight Staff Is 1st Rate!"
Cons: "-United Airlines Check In Procedure @ Terminal C Newark International, Bag Drop Off & Colridinated TSA Check In System Was OverCrowded, Seemed Un-Organized, And Inefficient! -United Airlines Would Be Better Served To Assign Two Ajirline Agents To Assisit United Passengers With Bag Drop Offs & Flight/Seat Assignmnets. -Also The Fact That United A.L. Charges $25.00 Additional For Each Bag Is Ridiculous! Just Build The Cost Into Each Ticket Peice. Southwest Airlines Is Ahead Of The Curve On This! That's One Reason Why Southwest Is So Successful'"
Pros: "Excellent and friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why not have people board the plane based on sat number? Why this cattle call and stand in line like you're not going to get a seat? Everyone fighting for line position so they can get a place in the overhead bins? Stupid."
Cons: "Lost all my luggage"
Pros: "No turbulence smooth flight. Friendly pleasant pilot. Quickly landed parked and unloaded passengers."
Cons: "Longest security line I've ever seen. I almost missed my flight though I was 3 hours early. Weird set up at departures. At gate warned flight overbookedso we were all stressed we may not even get seat though mine was booked months in advance. I was in zone 4 and they only allowed zones 1-3 to stow carry on items that we had to already lug around the airport for hours. I was forced to check my regulation sized bag in the passageway to the plane as well as everyone else in my zone. Economy seat especially tiny and cramped. Unpleasant flight attendents."
Cons: "4 hour delay because of scheduling"
Pros: "The crew and pilot was very courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times. It was two hours behind schedule. Then there was a delay in boarding, no entertainment on board unless you buy wifi or previously downloaded the united app to watch selected shows on your mobile device! Appalling to say the least! Whatever happened to the days when you get on an airplane and food and entertainment was a part of your ticket price! Another thing that bothered me was the fact that I had to pay $25 for my suitcase! Really United! Am I not allowed one piece of luggage? I don't like carry my bags around with me so now I have to pay to check it! Shouldn't that be the other way around! Charge for carry on luggage, it's such a hassle and also slows down boarding time, cases congestion in the hallway with everyone reaching for their luggage in the overhead bins! I can keep going, but what good is it gonna do. United airlines suck!"
Pros: "Amazing! Informative pilot, with fun geograpgical facts along the way. SMOOTHEST LANDING I HAVE WVER HAD!! Friendly staff. Flight was great."
Cons: "Planes seats are small, especially fitting 3 people in one row."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes because of a tow bar malfunction. This made for a narrow window to make my connection of 25 minutes"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, times were great!"
Cons: "Crew a little snippy.."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the morning of, I was rerouted through a later flight to AA when the United employee couldn't speak enough English to communicate, I misheard 2:30 when she actually said 2:13. Showed up an hour early as I always do at Eugene airport, only to have the gate shut in my face...we'd missed the flight. I then proceeded to get in my car and drive three hours to catch a connecting flight to Phoenix through traffic etc etc....only to arrive in Phoenix 6 hours later than expected. All of my evening business meetings, lost. Thanks United, you always seem to find a new way to screw it up."
Cons: "Take off delay due to catering"
Pros: "We paid to upgrade so comfort was better than most but seats are not wide enough. I don't know how a larger or obese person would travel."
Cons: "Paying for tv and movies. Seats way too narrow. A typical low grade economy seat has zero room to move or legroom if you're carry on is under the seat in front. Seems like it's gotten worse over last ten years... Isn't it dangerous to have us all crammed in there like that?"
Pros: "Even though it was a larger plane it boarded rather quickly for the number of passengers on board"
Cons: "The United Express spoiled me because of its smaller size but being roomier then the second half of my trip"
Pros: "TV service in plane was awesome feature"
Pros: "Theflight out was early and the stsff on both planes pleasent."
Cons: "The seats on flight out had no room and i was on top of my husband in order to give the poor man next to me room."
Cons: "Seating is uncomfortable. Seats too large for 5' tall person"
Pros: "I traveled down south from Anc to Pns, rsking my mom and aunt home.The attendants in Anchorage and Denver were helpful. Leaving Denver we didn't have a wheelchair for my aunt and the attendant called several times, finally someone came for my mom, but my aunt had to walk. In Houston no one very came with wheel chairs and they both had to walk, then a gentleman came with a cart, but could only drive so far. When we arrived at the team they were no wheel chair attendants available."
Cons: "Normally this wouldn't matter however my mom has a prosthetic hip that made one side of her body shorter than the other and she has a bad limp. My aunt has rheumatoid arthritis in her feet and they swell really bad when she walks alot. Flying to Anchorage Delta had greattach customer support at every point. Flying to Pensacola United had little customer support staff."
