Pros: "Flight crew and airline attendants very helpful"
Cons: "Cleanliness of airplane"
Pros: "the head rests where best ever for shorter person .crew friendly.kept informed."
Cons: "The flight itself and the crew are typical of Alaskan Air quality, but there was an unruly passenger directly behind me kicking, punching, screaming, and swearing for the better part of the flight which made the surrounding travellers extremepy uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew and timeliness of this airline is hard to beat!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Had the exact same meal on both of our flights. Flight from Seattle was one hour late in departure."
Pros: "Comfortable seats dor my 6’6 husband."
Cons: "Seattle-Tacoma to Calgary plane was too small seats for my husband 6’6"
Pros: "Service was prompt. I like the free entertainment on your own device"
Cons: "This is unusual for Alaska Airlines but there was a grumpy flight attendant!"
Pros: "First class away with leg rest on first flight was very nice. Great gate agents in BRW, Anchorage and Omaha."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, downgraded to coach on replacement flight, luggage was lost (still waiting), surly gate agent on CRT leg. No need to be so unpleasant."
Pros: "They could’ve told us we needed to download the app for free entertainment prior to leaving the ground, but other than that I was very please. Alaska Airlines is always great to fly."
Pros: "I dont like there service."
Cons: "Alaska airlines did not provide assistance and I requested to assist to re check in my baggage. I did not receive any assistance to the airlines staff. This is horrible service and not happy to the alaska airlines."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and feel roomier than most, boarding was easy, flight was turbulant but still comfortable and even arrived early, fantastic crew, never have an issue."
Cons: "The following are not complaints just my review of the topics given: I did not purchase any food on my Alaska flights because there were no plant based (vegan) options. I was unable to use the in-flight entertainment that was advertised (many times) for unknown reasons."
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no notification."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice & patient. Did fabulous job making sure everyone had water before the in flight food & drinks came through. The order process & quick payment process made things move swiftly."
Cons: "the small amount of leg room."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating. I liked that they boarded the back of the plane first. Also liked the updates from the flight attendants of what areas you were flying over at the moment. Was impressed with the landing as the pilot had a nasty crosswind to deal with that rocked the plane pretty good."
Cons: "I've been on a few flights recently with headrest screens for entertainment. This plane did not have that."
Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was nice"
Cons: "Could have had games on screens on 2nd flight--or anything like that on first flight. Beverage service was extremely slow on 2nd flight."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Everything went well on the flights, very cordial and friendly staff on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "The last 3 flights thay I've been on from Seattle to Nashville, it seems that it is too warm, would appreciate if they turned up the air conditioning."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to a maintenance issue. We were put on a different plane and departed. Staff was very helpful."
Pros: "The overall experience."
Cons: "How times were pushed back instead of leaving on time."
Pros: "I take this flight about 30 times a year and I love it."
Cons: "I do not like teachers and people that work for the hospital complaining about people that live in Bethel."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the leg room being 6’4” and all! All my flights were con time, and without delay. I definitely we will recommend Alaska Airlines to family and friends."
Cons: "Not showing free movies on the flights."
Pros: "Everything and everyone is awesome!"
Cons: "I just hate turbulence."
Pros: "This is a flight that locals and contractors take. Frequently, many people on the flight know each other. In Bethel, you will always board with stairs. The crew is very professional (though they may strange errors describing the terminal in Bethel because many of them have never been there), but this is changing as more and more pilots and crew have lived or do live in Bethel."
Cons: "Many times this flight is a combi, so no first class. Generally, no entertainment, and wifi cuts off after about 20 minutes. From time to time visiting contractors or short-timers won't stop talking on the flight about how much they hate Bethel (but have no trouble making a living from it)."
Pros: "i flew from seattle to orlando and although it was a long flight i was very comfortable with ample leg room"
Cons: "on this leg of the trip i asked one of the attendants for help with the in flight entertainment and the only suggestion i got was to rent a tablet from them."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Overbooked flight, moved to isle seat instead of window seat which is incredibly uncomfortable for a person of my stature."
Pros: "2 hours 20 minutes late. Cramped seats with zero elbow room."
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is top-notch on-time comfortable seating service was impeccable and a great experience all around can't wait to fly them again"
Pros: "Everything other than the seats"
Cons: "Seats. Especially when I paid more for Exit seats and found out the first row of exit seats did not recline."
Pros: "We liked that we got the best price possible with Alaska from Kayak. It was a great staff aboard the flight!"
Cons: "Our landing was very rough both in Seattle and Portland. Also, our boarding took forever and there were a lot of rude people not letting seniors or mothers with young children go first. Some people also had horrible colds and were coughing loudly and very grossly all through the flight."
Pros: "I liked the service from the associates overall."
Pros: "Everything is good. Service Excellence all around!"
Cons: "More options in snacks."
Pros: "The plane was a good ride and comfortable seating, the staff was superb. I have recently flew Southwest, United, American, and Delta, Alaska was by far the best for non-first class travel."
Cons: "Gogo is a no go. The CEO of whomever supplies it should be made to sit in a seat, handed his cell phone, and told to get wifi. By the time he is ready to throw his cell phone out the window, he will fire ten programmers. Guys! It shouldn't be this damn much work. I asked other flyers, they said, "not using it, couldn't figure it out." Here's a blast, - quit charging, have it show up as a wifi hotspot on a cell phone, you push a button for connect, and voila- THAT IS HOW IT SHOULD WORK."
Pros: "worst flight ever on Alaska air. paid full fare first class and treated like a freeloader. hate to see their reputation go downhill. but like most airlines now, they are not interested in the premium customer. Ill go back to Delta..."
Pros: "This trip was my first experience flying Alaska Airlines. I was very impressed with friendly staff, on time performance and being a tall person, the roominess of the cabin on all flights. I will fly them again."
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: "Very professional staff yet personable, helpful with questions r/t the flight. Great flight and great landing! I love that you do not have to pay for every single thing and that the weight limit on luggage is still at 50 lbs! Definitely will use this airline again!"
Cons: "I am 6' 2" tall. I can't put the tray table down because my knees are in the way. That problem becomes worse when the person in front of me leans the chair back."
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: "Efficient boarding and on time flight-crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Being between two big men, I felt squished in the middle, so I don't know if the seats are smaller than other airlines, or just my situation, but sleeping was pretty much out of the question, as I could barely move."
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."
Cons: "I was seated in 19A and they had already ran out of the Chefs sandwiches by time they got to my row."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Cons: "There was no wheelchair waiting in Seattle! The seats are WAY TO SMALL and I only weigh 130 and am 5'4" tall!"
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."
Pros: "Everything great."
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!"
Cons: "Not sufficient time between flights - catching next leg to Atlanta. Had to literally run to another concourse to make flight even though the arrival from Anchorage was on time."
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: "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"
So uncomfortable, no food. And one of the flight attendants was rude.
The seat back entertainment screen didn’t work at my seat. Staff was great.
Pros: "We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible."
Cons: "Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle."
Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"
Cons: "Broken tray table literally off its hinges and unusable."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"
Pros: "Good crew, on time flight and departure."
Cons: "The Anchorage airport was FREEZING cold and it was August, maybe a little less AC IS IN ORDER"
Cons: "sat on the tarmac for 3 hours because the pilot was late."
Cons: "The check process was ridiculous. There not enough room in the box for me to explain my experience but the ticket agent lied to me, said he couldn't take my bag until I got a paper receipt and boarding pass from a kiosk despite having had pre-paid for my bag and digital boarding pass. 25 mins wasted"
Pros: "The crew was great. Honestly, they remembered my face and greeted me when I saw them that night in the hotel."
Cons: "I can't think of anything. I had great service on the ground and in the air. All the personnel were kind and helpful."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "Everything except lack of internet connection AFTER paying $19.95"
Cons: "Not getting internet after paying $19.95"
Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."
Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"
Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."
Cons: "The comfortability and that’s rear even if I had the middle seat. I had it on my way towards Alaska and didn’t have any issue"
Cons: "Seating poor — crowded and little leg room"
Pros: "Great employees, genuine, quick drink service, early arrival, available entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process was slow and backed up due to extra baggage needing to be checked involuntarily"
Pros: "Snacks, drink, and spacious leg room in emergency exit row. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "No entertainment"
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: "Cornell and Dorothy and the other flight attendants were the BEST! Cornell actually welcomed each passenger as they came onboard. Dorothy modeled the emergency info in such a graceful way... that you chose to pay attention because she made you feel secure. My colleagues and I have all agreed to fly Delta again ( specifically the Atlanta/ Milwaukee flight) Because of these courteous, caring, and professional people!"
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Pros: "Nice crew, no delays"
Cons: "Stood by as people blocked aisle during boarding, making snide comments. Instead, the two should have assisted & encouraged the passengers to step out of the aisle & move along. Was very cold hit call light fir blanket. No response for 10 min so went to the bs k of plane where the crew was chatting & eating. When I asked about blanket, they didn’t look fir any & said they didn’t have any unopened. Upon leaving big plane, I saw a stack of about 5 packaged blankets in the front. Just rude & lazy older crew. Time for a different job fir them"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."
Pros: "Was able to sleep for once. Nobody in center seat."
Cons: "Crying babies"
Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"
Pros: "Direct flight, on time, friendly crew, smooth flight"
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."
Pros: "The boarding was ok due my on pert on being able to board early. The stewards were nice, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The seats were the same size as economy. I was disappointed due to fact I traveling with a larger friend and hoped to be comfortable. So much for that idea. The snacks and monitors were limited on each flight. I felt my prices should have as well. I guess this was a learning experience for me. Now I know there is only 1st class and economy."
Pros: "2 Delta employers went out of their way to address our messed up situation and make sure we got home without robbing us blind."
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: "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. :)"
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: "Very nice entertainment and staff"
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"
Cons: "Hello allow upgrades to first class if they're available even when the flight takes off -on my flight in to Atlanta the pump three people up to first class and love them to sit in on my flight home to sit still empty what's up with that ?"
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment until arriving at the gate."
Pros: "Entertainment. Center was great"
Cons: "Boarding has been made so complicated it's a joke."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time"
Pros: "First time I've seen Delta have zone boarding areas near the gate, kinda like what Southwest does with their boarding numbers. Kinda worked, kinda still a mess. One crewmember was nice to my son at the end of the flight, offered to get him into the cockpit for a photo op."
Cons: "Very little legroom. My knees just barely fit in the aisle."
Pros: "Don't know yet. We're still waiting to leave."
Cons: "That you're asking how it was before I left."
Pros: "That we got home. Delta was apologetic but it would be nice if you didn't get stuck for hours touching and looking at the grime left by others."
Cons: "Too bad the attitude of one crew member wrecked it for her coworkers but this can happen. Sorry for Delta and pasengers. The plane was disgusting, filthy, miserable. Dirty trays for more than one in our party. The lavatory on starboard side was a wreaking urine splattered mess before the plane took off. Come on airlines. Take your profits and at least clean your crappy old planes if not replace them."
Our 9:00 pm flight was cancelled on our way too the airport!!! No reason was given too us!!! So stressful!!! I couldn’t believe it!!! Thank goodness we arrived 6 hours ahead of time. We were able too get on an earlier flight. Than everything was great!!
The plane was on time .. thanks
This was a much better experiencie than others with AA
Entertainment was very plentiful, staff were courteous. Seating was HORRIBLE. That is the most cramped I’ve ever been on any flight …Jet Blue and Spirit included. Very uncomfortable for a six hour trip.
I booked this reservation 2mo in advance with 2 lap babies. When i called to add the babies they never told me about the lap baby rule. If I would have known i would have bought my toddler her own seat no problem. They moved my seats far from each other. My babies need to sit near their mom it was a redeye. At check in the manager did us a “favor” and moved us to adjacent aisle seats… in the last row. Those seats don't recline and the constant people, flushing and talking woke the babies up all night. No one slept. The main attendant couldn’t be bothered and had a, get over it bad attitude. Oh did i mention i had a dog at my feet also?? Every time they were woken up by the bathroom (constantly) my babies would cry for their mommy and i could only hold on at a time. adjacent seats from mommy is not comforting . Why on earth would we be moved to those seats?! I know why. We were discriminated against for having babies. “Put the babies in the back.” I was a 4x a year flyer at minimum. We will NEVER fly with AA again and i will be filing a complaint. You should be ashamed of your treatment of a family and young children.
Flight delayed out of MCO cost me my connecting flight to PDX. Held up in a hotel in Phoenix…
Cons: "Mechanical delays of 90 minutes ugh"
Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Plane was late getting in so boarding was an hour late"
Pros: "Boarding, departure and arrival were on time"
Cons: "We changed terminals and the communication was minimal. The original plane had mx issues, so the boarding/takeoff time kept slipping."
Cons: "Economy basic on American is terrible."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Landing while raining the pilots did a great job"
Cons: "faster boarding, going out of the plane, the internet on plane was included but didn’t work"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay on the ground - very poor communication from Crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."
Cons: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "The fight was awesome from takeoff to landing. This has been one of the first flights that my ears did not pop and hurt in years!!! We took off about 10 minutes late waiting on a crew member but made the time up in the air. Great flight!!"
Pros: "Crew is helpful, seats comfortable"
Cons: "If they don’t offer free food why not offfer snacks for money. Movies are quite old."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was nice."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight crew from PDX to CLT were not very customer service friendly. I was quite underimpressed."
Cons: "American Airlines couldn’t make plane seats anymore cramped. Cabin was very cold with no way to control climate. If you don’t buy first class or premium be ready for very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Cancellations and the staff was not very helpful at all! Very disappointed"
Pros: "What to like with AA?"
Cons: "Delayed by 2:38 hours at Chicago due to aircaft repair. Total layover 8:38 hours."
Pros: "Masson was very attentive and thoughtful. She checked on my connecting flight for me and was generally extremely helpful."
Pros: "Efficient flight."
Cons: "Our party of four All had separate seated, two kids, even though we checked in at the earliest possible moment our only seat change options would’ve cost $400 to sit together."
Pros: "on time flight, excellent crew"
Pros: "The flight attendant was sweet and nice; flight was not full so I got to have a row to myself."
Cons: "I was surprised there was no beverage service at all. On my flight from Roanoke to Charlotte, same length flight, we were served water and pretzels. I would have liked a beverage."
Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Cons: "The flight had no pilot assigned to the flight yet the attendants still boarded us. Then we waited on the plane for an hour before exiting the plane. The attendants gave us little information on flight alternatives and when the flight was finally allowed to board again, they did not announce it and so had I not been waiting close by, I would have missed my flight. It was extremely disappointing but not shocking with all the scandals that have occurred this year with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying with them."
Cons: "Dated plane. Business class seats did not have power outlets to charge mobile phone."
Pros: "This flight was not full, so most people on the plane had the opportunity to spread out and have an empty seat next to them. The in-flight entertainment choices were vast."
Cons: "Food quality was not as good as some of the other flights, but there was still an ample amount of food served."
Cons: "The plane was incredibly hot and humid while we were on the ground. The stewardess told us we had a broken APU but would not tell us what that is or if it was actually a problem. Someone pressed the call button during the flight but the stewardess couldn't be bothered to get up and the call light stayed on the whole flight. Eventually the plane cooled some once we were airborne but stayed too warm. It got very hot once again when we landed."
Cons: "We waited for seven hours while our flight kept getting delayed. We finally switched to another flight and I don’t even know if our original flight ever got off the ground. Frustrating, irritating, disappointing. American Airlines was a huge disappointment"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, helpful, flight was on time, seats were comfortable, worked with me to sit next to my wife. The meal and one of the snacks was really good."
Cons: "Bag drop process at CDG was long and confusing, but the staff were doing all they could to help us get through it. Bravo to them. The food could have been a little healthier (a little too much of it was high in sugar)."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. I really liked the touch screens on the chairbacks. Food was fine for airplane food. It came more than I expected. Get sandwiches over the meals, they are better quality. A vegetarian guy had a hard time but the crew tried to help him out. Comfort was ok for a 13 hour trip. The chairs are not really the best and my back hurt after a while. Make sure you stretch! Crew was nice except for one lady. But she wasent rude just... non responsive. Other members were fantastic though. Boarding was very painless."
Pros: "No major issues with the flight itself, see below for MAJOR issues with check-in and checking bags."
Cons: "The organization with American Airlines at Charles de Gaulle was absolutely pathetic. I understand it's a busy airport, but NONE of the other airlines had lines like American did. Then by the time you get up to an American airline employee, incompetence was written all over their faces. The straw that broke the camel's back was that they insisted on separating my partner and me while doing security questions, meanwhile other parties who were together were not separated (LGBT discrimination). This pushed us back 10 minutes--we were separated and he was having to wait for me after the questioning to get my bag checked, too. I'll add that we arrived to the airport with over 2 hours to spare before our flight which should have been more than enough time. We probably would have missed the flight if not for a few decent Charles de Gaulle employees who bumped us though lines at customs when they realized the time crunch, no thanks to anyone with American Airlines. I heard so many saying they will not use American Airlines again, and how saving a few dollars was not worth the headache. Flying is already stressful enough, don't make it that much worse."
Pros: "Everything was crew, drinks and the flight was great!"
Cons: "The flight, listed as a Finnair flight, was operated by American Airlinea. The small domestic plane was cramped and uncomfortable for a cross Atlantic over night flight. The expectation was a European transatlantic airliner. Make sure you check the plane model before you book."
Pros: "Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Seats too small. I mean waaaay too small."
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Usb charger would not charge tablet in flight. Tried multiple sources since there were 4 of us-none worked."
Cons: "Was not able to check in online in advance. AA wouldn't recognize the booking # that was emailed to me. Sat on the plane for nearly 3 hours while a mechanical issue was looked at; lateness of the flight meant we missed our connection. When we got to the table for people who would miss connections to get our boarding pass for a rescheduled flight, there wasn't one for us. We got there, but this wasn't really a great experience."
Pros: "Was fairly roomy and flights were generally on time"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic- partly because passengers payed little attention to boarding groups and ground crew tried to control it- to little avail. Also, pilot or crew did not tell us what gate we were deplaning at and with short tomes between flights, I need to plan where my next gate is and fastest route there."
Pros: "The crew kept us informed as to why we didn''t leave the gate on time; they served beverages and snacks in an efficient manner. Once we got to Dallas we were early, he made up time in the air and the captain informed us that the gate was not ready to receive the plane. We waited about 15 minutes and then we got to the gate."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway after landing because the gate is occupied."
Pros: "After missing my flight by a few minutes, AA booked me on the next flight which was only a 40 min wait, which was a blessing."
Cons: "Missed my initial flight due to how long it took to get my baggage to go through customs (after arriving from Japan.) My baggage was then left in Dallas and I had to wait until the following night to receive it."
Pros: "The service was good and the food was ok. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "That we didn't have our own screen to select our own movies."
Cons: "The man sitting next to me had too much BO used much of my space."
More actual seat room Seats very narrow Service was excellent
Pros: "Flight was quick and easy"
Cons: "Seats are small. Luckily the flight is short bit for anything longer than one hour I do not recommend this aircraft"
Cons: "Airplane temperature was freezing"
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "It was a CRJ-700, but I was cramped..."
Pros: "Love the movies available on the United app"
Cons: "The A/C was blowing ice cubes at me, which wasn't the worst because it was pretty warm yesterday, but still it was less than ideal."
Pros: "The crew made the best out of it and thankfully it’s an extremely short flight."
Cons: "A 20 minute flight was delayed for 2.5 hrs. United did a terrible job with notifying passengers, just simply bumped out departure in 15 min increments. Original excuse was inbound delay, although plane was there for 6 hrs already. Passenger soiled himself in cabin and there was no ventilation."
Pros: "Flight was extremely late!"
Cons: "Need power outlets at seats."
Pros: "Quick boarding and early arrival"
Cons: "No real entertainment features. Nothing while in international waters. Not even a map of where we were."
Pros: "Free snacks they gave us for the 6 hours delays."
Cons: "Everything, the delayed no one knew what was going on. It was also expensive and not as comfortable as other plans"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The seats are small, no real space, things over all looked run down, feels like I’m taking a city bus but even those have more room."
Pros: "It was generally quiet and peaceful. I called the stewards at one point and they were very prompt and attentive."
Cons: "Teeny tiny seats on an overnight flight? I had to ask my rowmates to clear the row so I could find my glasses that had fallen under my seat because there simply wasn't room to maneuver even an arm down to manually search for them. This is not to mention that most people sleep on these flights; how is that comfortable for most regular Americans?"
Pros: "Mediocre. The attendant was lovely."
Cons: "I hate being charged for one bag. It should be included. I'm glad I wasn't bumped off and dragged off the plane bloodied, it was a concern. Especially because I'm an Asian person."
Pros: "For the amount I paid I'm surprised all we got was mixed nuts! Very disappointing! I hated watching movies on my iPhone, wished you had mounted headrests"
Cons: "Free food or more snack options! Tv consoles in the headrest"
Pros: "Flight and crew great"
Cons: "I had one small bag and just did the economy and was going to put it under the seat. The guy at the checkin did not allow my bag and made me check it EVEN THOUGH it fit in their mock tray. He said I squeezed the sides 1 inch and that it just need to go in the tray by gravity. That is complete BS. As long as it fits under the seat and I am not putting my feet in others space thats is all that matters. Check in people at least one guy in Denver needs to be retrained."
Pros: "The attendents were helpful and nice except in the situation I've listed in dislike. The plane left on time and arrived early and we didn't have to wait 20 minutes for a gate to open up."
Cons: "I chose the back window seat right in front of the restrooms. Crewmember even said it was the worst seat in the house. Although I didn't pay to upgrade, thee were available seats up there. The attendant even said she would ttry to move things around once people were seate without anyone asking. She just knew our row was going to be uncomfortable.. I am tall with big shoulders, the gentleman next to me was large. All that I ask is the attendant come back after all is settled and explain that it wasn't possible to move things around. Although, if there were seats available I should have been offered a different seat. I have flown a lot on different airlines. I've flown on a 15 hour flight overseas. This is BY FAR the most uncomfortable I have EVER been."
Pros: "I made it home"
Cons: "No plugs for electrical, no entertainment and no internet. The seats were very tight. Especially the man next to me was 300+ lbs. Also I had to pay for baggage even though I have united cc. American has all these things and doesn't charge me for baggage."
Pros: "It was a quick flight that was really nice"
Cons: "People got on at the last moment"
Pros: "Flight was delayed almost missed connection."
Pros: "Efficient and arrived early."
Pros: "It never took off. I should have just drove from NYC to Milwaukee. It would have been faster! Now, I have to deal with baggage issues because they made me unnecessarily check my carry on."
Cons: "All of it"
Pros: "Smaller crowd"
Cons: "Had to rush from one terminal to another to just barely make boarding, there was a bad smell on the plane, and the staff was not friendly."
Pros: "I ended up missing my connecting flight because the flight left the airport almost an hr late....once i get to my connecting flight...ive missed it...soooo i had yo wait 4hrs for the next available flight & missed my doctors visit......im sooo pissed....."
Cons: "Missing my connecting flight"
Cons: "There were no snacks on the second leg of the flight. I guess the flight was too short."
Pros: "Boarded on time. That is all."
Cons: "After boarding, we waited on the plane for a long time before they said there was a mechanical problem and we would need to deboard while they fix it. After waiting another four hours they finally canceled the flight. They couldn't get us another flight and said to come back the next day to see if there is another flight out."
Cons: "I was not told that if I voluntarily checked my carry on bag I wouldn't be able to make flight changes later."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Very short flight so rating entertainment & food is not really relevant. 15 minutes in the air."
Pros: "What can you say ?? It's a 20 minute flight on a tiny cramped plane but it got us from A to B on time. Crew was as friendly as they needed to be. Landing was very hard."
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "Only negative was that the seat was cramped, not much room."
Cons: "The flight was canceled with no explanation or an offer to reschedule. The next flight available was tomorrow afternoon which was not acceptable. When I asked customer service about a refund I was told to go to the website, but it was not guaranteed. Highly disappointed."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to long lines in customs and security. United was unable to get me another flight out that day and I ended up taking a bus back to Milwaukee instead."
Cons: "Lost my luggage and made us late"
Pros: "Everything you are.."
Cons: "They canceled my flight, lost my luggage made me miss events in my life on my vacation and only comped me 20$ food ticket which is nothing in an airport. And I was stuck in an unfamiliar airport for 10 hours waiting for a new flight through another airline. Oh and dod I mention the bag they lost for a whole day was 50lbs of fresh Alaskan seafood and yes it all was thawed.... I will never fly United airlines again."
Pros: "Needed to get to a hurting friend asap who's husband was dying. When I checked my luggage the delta employee gave me a heartfelt hug & words of encouragement Which meant more to me then anything. That's not in any training manual that's the heart of a great employee...."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "The way you bord the plane"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I don't think it's possible to construct a plane more cramped than that, but I'm sure someone will rise to the challenge."
Cons: "In Houston, At the gate with my ticket in hand, I was told I was not on the flight and would have to be scheduled on the next flight. The boarding pass in my hand matched the flight and time with the seat I picked out online when I purchased the ticket. Then a bad storm went through and many flights were cancelled. (Not the fault of United of course). About 9 hours later with a new boarding pass, I went to the gate to board and was told once again that I was not on that flight even though I was holding a new boarding pass!! What is going on here!? How can this happen twice to the same person, let alone happen at all??!"
Pros: "We were on time and that was great!"
Pros: "Weight restriction on the plane, almost didn't make it out"
Cons: "Late to leave anchorage because of a weight restriction. Flight was only 3/4 full."
Pros: "The flight attendant tried to work with the overpacked plane."
Cons: "Overcrowded, items stolen from luggage, my bag was open when I was trying to get it off baggage claim, I only had half a seat, the flight smelled horrible."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "seats were a little less shitty but still shitty"
Cons: "Terrible gate issues, confusing layout, flight attendant was a bit harsh, very uncomfortable !"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the flight overall was pleaseant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour due to the first officer not showing up. In addition to that, the gate was changed several times, forcing everyone to move. Baggage took way too long to unload"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
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"
