Pros: "Very well looked after, couldn’t ask for more."
Cons: "Nothing, perfection."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Had the exact same meal on both of our flights. Flight from Seattle was one hour late in departure."
Cons: "Your premium seating snack were dry and boring. Second leg from Seattle to.Vancouver I was charged for free drinks, snack. Then flight was barely 35 mins, waste of money and looked no different from basic seating"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and very pleasant"
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. I bought this ticket from Anchorage to San Antonio TX. I paid over 100 extra to get this flight then competition just to get there as soon as possible/smallest amount of time traveling. My 9 hr travel became 18. 2 flights became 3. And all they offered me was 75 dollar coupon"
Pros: "Love the service from the crew , very Polite and courteous"
Cons: "They don’t offer the Hawaiian Mai Tai’s on the flights to Hawaii"
Pros: "I missed my flight and the lady who helped me get on the next flight was so helpful!"
Cons: "On my flight I was freezing. I saw first class received blankets and many of them were not being used. I explained to the flight attendant how cold I was and asked if I could purchase a blanket. I’m a very understanding person, but even after all of my attempts to warm up (i.e., drinking hot water, moving around, etc.) I was miserable and on the brink of tears. I understand staff must follow company policy but I found this to be horribly inhumane. After reaching out to corporate my issue was never resolved."
Cons: "Crying baby and turbulence. Nothing in anyone’s control."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, for a sardine can, but that is a given these super efficient cramming of people on the plane days. But the seats were clean and comfortable, the flight crew was professional, and the trip uneventful."
Cons: "Bigger seats are probably to much to hope for..."
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."
Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."
Pros: "I had been upgraded to First class, so you couldn’t go wrong. The flight was delayed over an hour due to a mechanical issue. I am grateful that they watch the planes so closely and fix the issues."
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."
Pros: "The flight from hell is over. I've had better jumps from a C-130. At least I didn't bounce as much and the Army never nickel and dimed us for everything."
Cons: "Boarding? Alaska Airline had a 4 hour lay over. Crew? Ask "Chad" a question and when he's done joking around and serving 6 other people, he may get to you. Comfort? You have to pay for leg room. Otherwise your knees are in the back of the seat in front of you. Food? What food? They offered trail mix. You have to buy the cheese platter. After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death they landed on one set of wheels, then bounced two more times."
Pros: "People were as nice as they could be but they were not empowered to fix a stupid problem with an obvious solution."
Cons: "They arbitrarily changed my connecting flight - I ran and made the flight ! But they had already switched me to the later flight without telling me and then wouldn’t let me board MY FLIGHT even though there was space so I had to wait an hour and a half for the next flight"
Pros: "Air vents let very little air flow so it was pretty warm during the entire 5 1/2 hrflight. 737-900 has lane."
Cons: "Temp was warm"
Pros: "Again I had premium sitting, very comfortable. I did have a meal, coconut chicken and jasmine rice. It was tasty but I wish they had given out a packet of soy sauce."
Cons: "There were fewer people on this flight and I had the whole row to my self. Unfortunately I was in row 6 behind 1st class that had the pullout trays. So I was not able to lift the arms in between the seats and stretch out."
Cons: "For real? Just cookies?"
Pros: "On time no problems. Staff very professional"
Cons: "Rotten grapes in my cheese platter."
Pros: "The promotions and the employees customer service."
Cons: "Couldn't find a thing to complain about, no matter how hard I tried!"
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: "Good service this time, but plane was delayed which made connecting a major rush"
Pros: "Planes same more spacious. Crew excellent. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "They did change my flight by several hours which was disappointing as I had a very short stay made shorter. No compensation not able to get me something better. Also resulted in a 5 hour layover in Seattle. Don't like paying for entertainment or food when I pay $1000 for flights. Feel cheated and buckled and dimed. Also did not like no free checked bags. Again I find all airlines that do this insulting. One bag should be included in our flight. How many people fly without any. That is one reason I often fly southwest."
Pros: "I liked the service from the associates overall."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight as far as seats were concerned. Literally felt like we were sardines. My second flight which was a much smaller plane was 10 times more comfortable."
Pros: "Lots of room & the meal was a pleasant surprise"
Cons: "I REALLY could have used internet/wifi and a 110V power outlet - just about everybody else has one or the other or both."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "They sent one of two bags on an earlier flight than we were on and we thought they had got lost"
Pros: "Service, nice plan and easy ride to Honolulu."
Cons: "I don't the seating arrangement in a 737-800. Three rows on each side makes the window and middle passenger very uncomfortable."
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: "That I was finally able to go home."
Cons: "My first flight to Alaska was delayed and my flight leaving was cancelled completely. I called customer service and was told I would be given a refund for all the trouble my cancelled flight was causing making me late for work and my ride being unable to pick me up at the new landing time. I never received a refund and my rebooked flight got cancelled. I almost didn't get home on that flight either, but the customer service agent found me a seat. I never received a refund and I missed out on pay at work. I never want to fly Alaska again!"
Pros: "the upside was that legroom was ok--i'm 6'2". plane did leave on time."
Cons: "1) not that alaska does any worse than others, but boarding is increasingly unpleasant. 5 grades of 'rewards' groups boards, then children, then military, then the elderly, etc. by the time people who paid full fair for their tickets board there's no overhead space left. by charging for any checked bags, the airlines are creating a very stressful and disorganized boarding experience; 2) the ambiance is just dull: cheesy music, dull, grey colors, poor lighting, etc. it just feels as if you're in a space designed by someone with no taste--and this is from the company that bought and killed virgin!? 3) the food is the same cheese plate and tapas plate i get on other airlines. 4) no special greeting upon boarding. it wouldn't take much to make the entire experience pleasant, but alaska and others don't feel the need to make the effort."
Pros: "tablets to keep kids busy, flight was on time"
Cons: "flights changed times, our original seats were lost and upgrades cost $80 per person"
Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Asked staff if there was a double seat available in the back...she said she didn't think so but never got back to me I told her I was concerned that my dog was bothering the people sitting on each side of me. I flew to anchorage on Delta & it was the first time taking my dog & they actually showed care & concern for her. Sorry Alaska no longer partners with Delta"
Pros: "I am a flexible, thin, 5'0" person and had a hard time sitting on that plane! Ugh. I don't know how bigger people make it through the flight."
Pros: "We arrived late for a connecting flight--that was about to leave--and were transported by van literally from the plane to the connecting plane. The driver quickly took all our boarding passes and checked us in at the gate. We left just a few minutes later! The crew helping us make that flight were so quick and took care of us. The other travelers and I were impressed and very grateful to barely make that flight. We were all sure we would miss it when we first landed. Thank you to all you wonderful people who made that happen!"
Cons: "I'd like to see movies on the flight for no charge. But we don't live in those days anymore, do we?"
Cons: "They ran out of food by the back of the plane where I was."
Pros: "more legroom, agent allowed me to move to a row with an empty seat."
Cons: "I think the "free" maitai was pretty awful.....would skip it next time. Hardly representative of island quality."
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."
Cons: "I was seated in 19A and they had already ran out of the Chefs sandwiches by time they got to my row."
Pros: "Everything great."
Cons: "N/A"

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."
Cons: "Given we left at 7:15 am, I would’ve liked some food options instead of biscuits and peanuts"
Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Nos trataron con mucha seguridad de higiene y nos sentimos muy seguras de viajar con ustedes muchas gracias"
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"
Pros: "great everything!"
Pros: "left on time and arrived on time"
Pros: "Very kind associate working at the gate. She helped me obtain my seat assignment and was a pleasure to speak with. Her happiness was contagious (even at 6am!). She put me at ease."
Cons: "The last travelers in boarding line (including myself) had to check their carry on luggage because “there was no more room in the overhead compartments”. However, while I was walking to my seat, I saw ample storage space as well as suitcases that were laying horizontally or flat and could easily have been adjusted to create even more space. Given that most people pack their most valuable items in their carry on bags (as well as anything fragile), I was a bit uneasy checking mine. The associate who helped check my bag on the tarmac was kind. I was grateful that my luggage had a hard shell case."
Pros: "I liked the free "meal". I chose the cheese. Reminds me of airlines 15 years ago."
Cons: "Main cabin is not built for people 6 feet tall. My body feels awful after sitting in those seats for 5-6 hours. Reclining causes the seat to shift forward, creating even LESS leg room!"
Cons: "It was great fir a short flight. And they got me there early."
Cons: "The Anchorage airport was FREEZING cold and it was August, maybe a little less AC IS IN ORDER"
Pros: "The crew and the boarding were good"
Cons: "No food. Just unhealthy snacks"
Cons: "Didn’t give us seats together"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but not much room"
Cons: "Couldn’t understand a word the flight attendants said on the intercom system"
Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"
Cons: "People should wait their turn getting off the planes “Wait until the seat in front of you is empty,” says the elementary school teacher .."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "Nice trip"
Cons: "Crew didnt know who was supposed to be on the flight - confusion over number of people on the flight"
Pros: "Boarding time, and timely departure"
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: "Cabin was too hot!!!!"
Pros: "nothing"
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: "Super friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Pros: "gate agents were friendly and efficient boarding. FA were fine and quickly served beverages and reurned two more times offering snacks and more drinks. comfort class seats were comfortable. all in all perfectly fine"
Cons: "i was not able to use my RU cert even after applying it over one month before and having diamond status.... makes me think why bother with status"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."
Cons: "Mechanical repair on nose wheel"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. The grounds staff was complaining as we got on about having to work late."
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: "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: "No complaints. A puddle-hopper to a yes."
Pros: "Ontime boarding, few minutes delay made up enroute for ontime arrival."
Cons: "Cabin service interrupted by turbulent weather."
Cons: "They charged $300 for 3 bags"
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: "Service and staff."
Cons: "No entertainment system on a very new A320. Gate G14 and G15 in Minniapolis is always vey contested"
Pros: "The food was excellent, as well as the flight attendants."
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: "N/A"
Pros: "Nothing more than expected."
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
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: "Delta is the best airline to use because they care about you as a customer. They will do everything they can to make your flight as enjoyable as possible. I would not recommend any other airline to use but DELTA !!"
Cons: "Nothing to input. All was great."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and ensured you had everything to your comfort . Great selection on movies . The food and wine selection was divine. Great service"
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: "Delayed 2.5 hours"
Pros: "Entertainment. Center was great"
Cons: "Boarding has been made so complicated it's a joke."
Pros: "The staff communicated what was going on"
Cons: "Our plane had mechanical problems and never left. I thought they would bring another plane in for us, but they never did. After 8 hours of waiting, we decided to cancel our trip and go home."
Pros: "Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "I didn't have an assigned seat though I booked months in advance."
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew and pilot"
Cons: "It would be great if childless flights were offered eventuall"
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"
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: "The flight was listed as a 50 minute flight. The boarding was great, and very fast and efficient, but there was news that Air Force One was scheduled to land at our destination, so the flight left a bit early. Upon reaching altitude, the plane made record time. 50 minutes was cut down to under 30 from take-off to landing. The attendant was barely on the last row (a charter plane) from serving drinks, before the cart had to be put away for landing."
Cons: "The seats were tiny and my neighbor and I were both a bit taller and stockier than perhaps an average passenger (220lbs)."
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: "The base price is better than Alaska Air. The travel time is acceptable."
Cons: "The base price is for a cramped seat with no checked bag included. Food and entertainment are also extras The human element has been eliminated from the check in process."
Pros: "Seat was ok."
Cons: "Didn't find out about the delay until we were almost ready to board. No planning."
Pros: "The staff & attendants were friendly & professional. The new United terminal is a very pleasant experience"
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: "Uncomfortable seat cushions like all of our United flights. This was the 1st United crew that was at least friendly!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions like all of our United flights. This was the 1st United crew that was at least friendly!"
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: "My flight attendants on my flight were wonderful and so was the boarding crew at San Fran's airport to Las Vegas were awesome as well. The space I had on my connecting flight to vegas was awesome and the feature it had to charge devices were a nice too."
Cons: "The crew at the front desks and at the boarding area for my flight from Anchorage, AK, to the San Fran airport however, were extremely rude. The rating for the crew is a 2 because although my flight attendants were awesome, but the service given to me and to my fellow flyers by the Customer Service Agents/Reps at the front desk and the training of a newbie at the gate, when boarding at the Anchorage, Alaska, airport was terrible. They were extremely unprofessional and did not seem to care that the tones of their voices, their facial expressions, as well as their body language, showed that they lacked the manners and knowledge of compassion, respect and courtesy. Their rotten attitudes were insufficient at making the customers/guests of the airlines feel comfortable before flying. I did not appreciate being spoken to the way some of the reps did."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Boa 're ding good"
Cons: "Lights on in plane all time american keeps lights dim so people rest"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
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: "no delays!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "If nothing else United has been consistent in their late departures and arrivals backed by absolute lies about the reason for delays. Staff says one thing then Pilot says something completely counter. Then the lack of any sort of heartfelt appology adds to the insult. Every flight was overbooked by at least 5 people. Total incompetence. Moreover, United has made profit so obviously more important than client comfort. The seats were similar to a straight back Dining room chair except with your knees in your chest. They even took away the seat back pouch as a smal comfort to place items to be replaced with an 8 inch high mesh that fits nothing larger than your cell phone. A 6 hour flight and 1 drink service with 1/2 glass of soda. Pay $7.99 only to find out that video does not work through Canada which was the majority of the flight"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and between the straight back and no legroom, a two hour flight felt like ten!!"
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"
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: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "I am 5'4" and had no leg room. My knees touched the seat in front of me the whole time. The in seat entertainment was broken on the entire plane for the flight. Simply won't ever fly in a plane so cramped ever again."
Pros: "The crew was nice to our one year old. And because it wasn't a full flight we were able to give him a seat which saved us!"
Cons: "We're healthy vegans and the snacks aren't friendly for us at all. We brought our own but to have options would have been nice."
Pros: "The one crew member that talked the whole flight was nice"
Cons: "Entertainment was not given freely, as if you didn't just pay 300 per ticket to fly on United. It would cut in and out just to tell you it wanted your credit card. The seats were so full the middle person doesn't even have room to sit up straight without touching shoulders"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Cons: "The free snacks were extremely salty. During the second leg of my trip, I chose to forego them. Other snacks were available for a cost."
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "Only negative was that the seat was cramped, not much room."
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Service, look like you have to purchase everything from food to entretaiment."
Pros: "Michael Reeves was helpful"
Cons: "The lack of communication to tell us why were delayed. No one told us about the flight being cancelled. We had 3 gate changes, told the flight was coming even though it never left its previous airport. Had to call and switch myself to another flight to get out of Okc."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over six hours. No explanation was given as to why and the flight was supposed to arrive at 6:45 and we got in at 12:30. Poor service at the gate and then we got on the plane and sat on the Tarmac for an hour with no explanation again. The air wasn't on and not drinks or snacks were offered for our wait time. a disappointing way to end an otherwise great weekend away."
Cons: "Lost my luggage and made us late"
Pros: "Everything you are.."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Everything"
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: "Once on the aircraft everything was just fine"
Cons: "First of all it was delayed, no big deal but once i checked in I wasn't even assigned a seat. I try to find an agent at the boarding gate and none to be found. They finally arrive 30 min before take off and then assign me a middle seat when I specifically picked my seat weeks earlier and of course was one of the last people to board barely enough time to search for a place for my bag and get to my middle seat in the back of the aircraft. Not even a sorry or any type of compensation for a terrible experience"
Cons: "No in flight movie!!!"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "The way you bord the plane"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "United has squeezed its Economy class customers into seats that are tolerable only for the shortest. If I were an inch or so taller, I would have found the space intolerable. As it was, my knees were against the seat in front. For a flight as long as this one (over 5 hours from Anchorage to Denver), it was uncomfortable to say the least. The middle of the plane was nearly empty, because United charges $75 per seat for an upgrade. For the round-trip for two of us, that would have added $300 to our bill. The fact that so few are willing to pay the upgrade fee indicates that the increment is too large."
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."
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: "Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "seats were a little less shitty but still shitty"
Pros: "That the plane finally embarked from Newark to Cleveland."
Cons: "Flight was two hours late. How can a one hour flight be two hours late in the month of May? The blaring ads for Direct TV were obnoxious. You could not control the volume of the transmission. Please ask yourself how many passengers to Cleveland, on a one hour flight would purchase service"
Cons: "The turbulence"
Pros: "Crew helped make the best out of out nearly 2 hour weather delayed flight."
Cons: "SFO to SEA is always prone to weather delays. Wish United would fly more from SJC."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Good service."
Cons: "No blankets for a long flight (it was said housekeeping was running late, but the departure was 45 minutes and still no blankets). Nickle-and-diming for any small purchase. Uncomfortable seats."
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"
