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"
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: "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."
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."
Cons: "Paid extra for premium seat and didn't get anything to drink theybskip our seats Not worth paying extra for nothing"
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"
Cons: "For real? Just cookies?"
Pros: "On time no problems. Staff very professional"
Cons: "Rotten grapes in my cheese platter."
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."
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..."
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: "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: "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: "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: "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: "The overall experience from obtaining the boarding pass on line and being greeted by the smiling staff on arrival to the airport. Directed to the carry on bag drop off was smooth and convenient. Appreciate the free service at the baggage drop off center for carry ins. Seats wide and comfortable, amble room for feet and excellent staff, polite, clean appearance and appropriate clothing. Wish my family could afford to use This 5 star airline to visit me at Christmas. I can't stop telling all my friends about my outstanding experience traveling from Washington state to Orlando, Florida. I have 7 family members traveling to Florida at Christmas and I do hope they can afford to to use Alaskan airlines"
Cons: "No improvements necessary. It was the best and most comfortable air flight I have experienced. I have travel quite a bit the last two years, now that I have retired"
Pros: "Everything great."
Pros: "Excellent non stop flight. My advance check in saved me from a massive tsa line as there was a special route through security."
Cons: "Your rating system gives points REGARDLESS OF WHETHER WE USED OR WISHED TO COMMENT. CONSIDER ALL THE STAR QUESTION NON ANSWERS."
"The seat back entertainment screen didn’t work at my seat. Staff was great."
"Flight was overbooked and we didn’t leave on time."
"The 2 hour delayed and the seats were very uncomfortable for economy"
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: "The crew."
Cons: "Nothing was mediocre about the crew or delta. The other passengers around us made a 4 1/2 hour flight feel like 8 hours of hell."
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "Seats were a little dirty especially for the COVID-19 going around."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice staff, clean facilities"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Media interface system and Gogo inflight app are not synced and I could not listen to the movie I was watching. No subtitles offered for in flight movies. Someone farted before we deplaned and it was quite unpleasant. Also I wish the automatic seat assignments took my height into account."
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Pros: "The crew was one of the best I have ever experienced. They even had the flight deck wish a happy birthday to my 89 year old mother in law."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. The airplane was not stocked with the food prior to scheduled departure. It appears as though our plane had landed at 7:30 am and our departure was scheduled for 9:30am. I am struggling to understand why in two hours the plane could not be stocked with food."
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"
Pros: "Very comfortable, great entertainment selection"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Could not get entertainment interface with my tablet to work, especially since I paid extra to do so. Could not access live TV on my seat/chair screen."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot!!!!"
Cons: "Terminal g18 is in the worst possible place. It is right smack in the middle of a food kiosk and restuarants with the ipad tables. You can't hear any announcements and boarding is just a cluster."
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Pros: "The lady at the ticket inter helped me em get eat I wanted!"
Pros: "I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!"
Pros: "Was able to sleep for once. Nobody in center seat."
Cons: "Crying babies"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."
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: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
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: "My toddler daughter became ill before departure and the crew was awful. They failed to provide me with hardly anything besides 2 blankets and a few remoistened hand wipes to clean up vomit and was very rude when I asked to change seats, even though there were at least 8 other seats open on the flight."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and it was still very cramped"
Pros: "Amazing experience thank you Delta"
Pros: "boarding was smooth crew great and service was good"
Cons: "sat in middle seat was my fault checked in late too many kids and babies on flight will not fly through orlando again food was typical airline food"
Pros: "For the first time in a ling time I felt if I dropped something I didn't have to kiss it goodbye. My knees and back didn't hurt by the end of the fight. I know longer felt like a sardines in a tin."
Pros: "Short comfortable flight.. good entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Everything was good with this flight.."
Pros: "From curbside check-in to landing the plane, overall excellent service ! Very pleased to find out they offered a shuttle from checkin to the gate. I am having knee surgery soon and the walk from security to gate 34 LaGuardia would have put me over the top with pain! It was a very nice gentleman that gave me a ride to the gate and even stopped to let me use the bathroom. Thumbs up *****"
Cons: "The fact that I was charged $150 to check a small cosmetics bag is no loose change ! I would have carried it on but my hand is in a brace and I has to have extensive surgery. Then yoy get to the gate, and they repeatedly asked for volunteers to check their bags for free. I think this is a very unfair policy and try to explain it to the curbside attendant. I literally cannot carry more than five pounds in my left hand until I get bone replacement surgery. I'm also having knee surgery soon and this small additional weight would be caused me excruciating pain ! They didn't care and still charged me $150 for a bag thats no bigger than 12 inches and weighs less than ten pounds. Thats the way you treat your first class passengers? One other quick note: the sausage and egg sandwich? that was served for breakfast was absolutely horrible! Thumbs down !"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "I fly Delta Airlines 2x a year and if I had to go on this flight experience alone I would never fly with them again. This particular flight attendant. Brunette who wore all red~ like she had a personal conflict with us from the moment we walked on the plane. We were sitting in the back and could hear the things that she was saying about my grandson and myself. She was rude, snotty, had a sassy mouth. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED as to the way we were treated by her. It was a long flight to have someone you felt was bullying you the whole flight to the moment we were exiting the plane. Karma will come back to her one day..."

Karma will come back to her one day..."
Cons: "No food on a coast to coast flight, outrageous drink prices and a crew that didn't fit in the aisle. Searched at the gate and was sorry I. Am back in America!!!"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."
Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat No entertainment"
Pros: "I had a middle row seat for this 3 hour 50 minute red eye flight. The plane was quite new. There was plenty of storage space in the bins above the seats. My seat was very comfortable. It reclined a lot. The leg room was more than I needed and I am 6' tall. The individual TV monitor was great. Delta made a long flight quite bearable!"
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Cons: "Seat(19c) is in a position that due to its design causes it to be bumped into continously throughout the flight... I lost track of the amount of times I got jostled by passengers and crew. May want to rethink the use of that seat. They ran out of food. Had to wait over 30 min on the tarmac before being able to deplane."
Pros: "I liked how fluid and easy the landing was. And I especially liked how we arrived to Orlando in less than the allotted time which was three hours."
Cons: "Did not like how there were not many options for eating, but loved the flight overall."
"Delayed for 2.5 hours, ending up awitching planes. As we left Charlotte at 0035, no services were offered. It was not a full flight."
"Tv on the plain"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, let me sit in the cockpit. Drinks/snacks were rapidly distributed to facilitate sleep during the redeye, legroom in my extra legroom seat was sufficient, and bathrooms were large. Also, we left swiftly and arrived on time."
Cons: "Lack of IFE screens was disappointing and the seats had zero padding."
Pros: "It was a quick and comfortable flight, no complaints."
Pros: "The plane was super comfortable"
Cons: "The crew of boarding was very rude"
Cons: "Being offered a cup of coffee would be nice"
Pros: "seats were super comfortable, would fly again."
Pros: "The back crew member was amazing. She really seemed like she cared."
Cons: "Larger seats and larger walkways."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment and snacks for a 3 hr flight"
Cons: "Charlotte airport needs to stop taking the protective cover off of my suitcase and I don’t get it back, this is the 2nd time that this has happened in Charlotte and it keeps costing me money to buy new covers and my suitcase becomes more damaged because they treat other’s belongings with no respect."
Pros: "Very short flight, crew was great"
Cons: "In Orlando we had a connection to Alaska Airlines to Portland, Oregon. No one knew where it was. Gate attendants told us to look on flight board. Not listed!"
Cons: "Good value"
Pros: "The pilot did great job.brought us before time."
Cons: "Pay extra for bag :( No video screen No food The check in area was mooved without notice."
Pros: "This fly was ok;was yet a litle time 20 minutes late."
Cons: "Wahington to Orlando was ok.O ly 20 mi utes late."
Cons: "On the red eye from Anchorage to LAX in Business class the A321 was ok as far as comfort. Same duration flight fromLAX to MIA, same plane, but we received a nice pillow and blanket, as well as a little travel kit and bottle of water. Seems strange there are different standards for the same duration"
Pros: "The plane was very quiet"
Cons: "I don’t like the stand to put your own iPads on. Just give us the screens. Seems cheap for a 5+ hour flight. Come on american."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "More room in seat"
Pros: "Arrived 5 minutes early which was great on a very late night."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable and ON-TIME!!"
Pros: "Pero AA Me conectaron de inmediato al proximo vuelo y logre llegar a mi Cena de Navidad con mi familia.. Gracias"
Cons: "que las distancias dentro de los gates del aeropuerto es muy larga y como no camino rapido perdi mi vuelo..."
Pros: "I slept the entire way because our flight was delayed and This was a connection flight for me but had now slept all day!!"
Cons: "Our seats wouldn't hardly go back, but noticed that a few seemed to operate properly. Tried to watch a movie (94minutes) on a 2.1 hr flight. Started it before takeoff and with all of the inflight announcements the credits didn't get finished before they shut down the system."
Pros: "Seats were nice and enjoyed the entertainment. Late flight meant loads of open seats and everyone was very happy about that."
Cons: "Delayed a half hour to board because flight attendants other flight was late getting in, but they kept us informed the entire time. Wasn’t their faults. Once we were on the plane, our flight was delayed for an hour, once again the pilots kept us informed and it wasn’t their faults. But it was kinda annoying."
Cons: "This was an updated 737 with pleather seats and a sleek look inside. But what matters most is leg room for me. There was none. I flew for 5 hours in totally cramped conditions. I loved the page in the mag about seat exercises to keep your leg circulation up. Couldn't bend my knees even. Disgusting"
Pros: "We were 40 minutes delayed but received good communication and had an uneventful flight otherwise."
Cons: "Horribly made me cancel flight because of 1min after 30 min cut off for boarding pass. Sat at the front desk for 29 minute arguing until my plane left."
Cons: "American continues to surprise through their lack of consideration and cheapness Prefer to have seat empty on the front rather than move passengers that are loyal frequent flyers. The most important point for American is you have to pay for everything including for flight status. No longer miles flew but how much you pay them"
Pros: "Having it finished without losing my luggage. Nothing else went right."
Cons: "Delay of one hour for missing crew member, delay of another hour sitting on runway waiting for revised takeoff queue, delay of another hour going back to gate due to equipment failure waiting in queue."
Cons: "Change of gate without notice because of this I lost my flight and I had to stay at the airport overnight the next flight was seven next day and the person out of content wass not nice at all she was so rude that didn’t make it easier for me !!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Crew let people move to main cabin extra without paying like I did"
Pros: "I loved our flight from Anchorage alaska to Los Angeles California. Flight attendants were kind and helpful. We had plenty of leg room and it was great flight. Loved our window seat."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight attendants snarky attitudes when we would ask for son."
Pros: "The fact that the lady at the counter was able to change our seats and put us all together."
Cons: "the movie screen being so far away"
Pros: "Comfort. We had a bulk head seat. Newer plane"
Cons: "No food offered . Not even for purchase."
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!"
Pros: "Seemed to have more leg room than average. Generally fine. I got to my destination without incident, and that is the most important thing! But flying today is awful. Uncomfortable, unpleasant, stressful, etc., all so the airlines (and their CEOs) can make millions."
Cons: "Crew was "all business" -- not many smiles. They offered the usually .5 ounce of pretzels or two cookies. Passengers routinely asked "can I have both?" and the answer was routinely: no. Really? My $300+ ticket isn't worth pretzels AND two cookies? Seems silly. And, you know that have BOXES of these free snacks."
Pros: "Full flight which is to be expected flying in to Orlando. Badly done seating, I think every group was separated from at least one person in their party. Several people weren't given seat assignments until time to board, even if other people in their party were assignments seats when checking in. No ecplanaation of why. In flight entertainment was an older movie. No options, and no sound if you forgot your own headphones."
Cons: "The seating assignments of lack thereof."
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Cons: "LATAM took our luggage from a flight from a different airline that we used to get from Miami to Orlando. They locked it up and closed before we arrived. My friend was unable to get his medicine, I missed vital time from a work contract, and we had to spend the night at the airport waiting until 1pm today to receive our luggage. This is the worst experience I've had with an airline. No one spoken with on LATAM seemed to care. We were stranded without sleep and got no clear answer from the LATAM hotline. There was no mention of compensation for our troubles. I will not be recommending this airline to other travelers aa this has ruines my work schedule and my friend is unable to get his medicine."
Pros: "The free cookies were very good and the service was great the flight was smooth and quick"
Pros: "Poor for BIG Airline like that chips chips"
Cons: "NOT GOOD the is 2 MUCH for CHIPS"
Pros: "Nice pilot, one of the flight attendants were nice. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "This airline always has delays! There is no in-flight entertainment (music, tv, movies, etc.); thus, the flight was terribly boring! Also, only peanuts and a small cup of soda was offered to us. Other airlines give cookies and biscotti! The seats don't recline and they need more legroom. The majority of the airline crew largely ignored us and showed mediocre customer service."
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."
Cons: "Had to deboard the plane due to mechanical problems, hour wait, missed the time to pick up rental car, had to find a new rental car upon arrival at the airport at 2am. Plane was freezing and crew had no blankets."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Engaged with customers no matter the seat preference"
Cons: "Boarding system not good !"
Pros: "Affordable first class seat - very unusual for AA"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Flights a few hours late, and then the time to turn for the better, and asked the staff, they actually said that I would like to wait, this flight service is really too bad."
Pros: "The crew was amazing with passengers that were less than amazing!"
Cons: "Releasing passengers in smaller amounts of rows might have been better."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and did the best it could with what is given to them."
Cons: "No space, super gathered, big chance of spread. Delayed take off"
Pros: "Old plane. Window shade cracked. Seat poorly maintained."
Cons: "Staff could’ve done a better job at asking family with unruly kids to settle down as a courtesy to other passengers."
Pros: "boarding was smooth"
Cons: "There was no ventilation on the flight. Cooling system not working adequately. Kept waking up b/c is was so hot. Came home with a massive headache as a result. Very UNCOMFORTABLE"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and orderly."
Cons: "Could prove in-flight entertainment options"
Pros: "Crew were very hospitable. Seating and take off moved at a good pace"
Cons: "Entertainment was limited. Smaller plane / less space"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "There was no WiFi or TVs"
Pros: "Boarding was quick.... I am just filling space to get to 50 characters as United was quite bad and that’s paying for first class"
Cons: "First class doesn’t get you into their United Club before the flight. You still have to pay for any food in first class. And they tell you need to download the app after you exit the airport area and lose WiFi and coming international couldn’t go and download before flight. United was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "I had to check my bag at the desk which I had not anticipated. When I checked in at the kiosk I was told I could only take a personal item - no carry-in size bag - because of my ticket classification. Very disappointed to have to spend $30 I did not plan on."
Cons: "Delayed for like 12 hours.... I ended up just going home! This flight was important to me and it's sad the service I got. Crew didn't even offer water when we were in plane for 3+ hours. We we're in the plane with no ac. Huge dissapointment"
Pros: "Fast to board but had to wait for over an hour for a connecting flight to get on the plane."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, no in seat entertainment"
Pros: "I liked the quickness of the boarding and the going through a fast lane for tsa. I enjoyed the WiFi and being able to charge my phone while enjoying a free movie in my phone."
Cons: "I don’t like you have to pay for the tv, and snacks could be a little bigger I guess"
Pros: "More leg room than the International flight. Reported may luggage missing...the rep. was excellent. Too bad I din`t get her name. According to united I will get my luggage tomorrow before noon on June 2nd 2018"
Cons: "Lost my second luggage wishes I paid $60 for it and no one couldn’t help"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Arrived safely."
Cons: "Almost got diverted to Tampa by thunderstorms, but this was not United's doing."
Pros: "It was a good flight, no turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times by 15 minutes. Not sure why they could not tell us how long the flight would be delayed all at once. They track the flight and know when it will land, don’t they?"
Pros: "They actually checked sizes of some “carryons.” Of course, it’s a cash cow for the carrier. The checkers should get 20% of the fee collected for checking oversized carryons at the gate."
Cons: "There are faster, more efficient ways to load and unload passengers."
Cons: "I had very little time to make my connection in Newark. Other airports/airlines have given me a short connection pass which has allowed passengers to make their connection with less stress. The security line inNewsrk was ridiculous. I spoke to a TSA agent who couldn’t have cared less if I missed my flight and a United representative who told me to “just try.” In the end, I had to ask other passengers if I could go ahead of them. While I made my flight with a few minutes to spare, the process could have been much easier and the United Rep could have done more. He could have just called the gate at the very least to let them know I was coming. Apathy is not an indication of good customer service."
Cons: "There was no free in-flight entertainment available on the tv screens. Half of the screens didn't work. The seat belts were not long enough to accommodate the passenger sitting beside me. The space for my personal item was smaller than the other flight."
Pros: "Great flight experience thank you United."
Pros: "Having a direct flight across the country was a good thing. That was about the only positive, well that & we did land safely."
Cons: "Ticket agent said I could take my bag on the plane. Gate agent told me my bag not I were going on the plane unless I paid $50 to put the bag below if I wanted to get in the plane. Very matter of fact & rude. I was just about the last person they let board so there really wasn't a chance to discuss with them. No WiFi on a cross country plane, lame. No access to the headrest video screen w/o paying for it, lame. Snotty unconcerned flight attendants as well. Overall one of the worst flights I've had in memory. I would pay more next time to fly another airline."
Pros: "I had no problems the gate agent was very nice and I did get the basic economy which that only did I have to pay for my bags but I also got the last seat in the back in the corner which is OK I guess I’ll pay more attention to the fair I still probably saved a little money but I don’t know that I save that much I think that sometimes the boarding agent needs to pay attention to the carry-on luggage for sure bring a lot carry-on luggage which doesn’t allow for others to have carry-on luggage who were in the later groups and then they get penalized with their bags being checked as there’s no more room and they’re not basic economy but other than that I like taking United they have nonstop service between Orlando in Houston and it’s been a wonderful experience most of the time and I think the airlines do a pretty good job considering the traveling public themselves to be very challenging at times professionalism and courtesy works both ways and unfortunately people buy tickets and think that it’s a one-way street. they then run to the media who loves to make it about the big guy versus the little guy anyway good job united and I will continue to fly you when you’re the most appropriate carrier to get me to where I want to be."
Cons: "Nothing I just need to pay more attention to my ticket purchase I didn’t realize it was a basic economy until after I bought it which meant I had to pay for my bags which added $50 to my fair which wasn’t that big a deal but then I got a seat all the way the back in the corner which really wasn’t that bad either but if I went to Carrynon a bag I was allowed to do so"
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: "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."
Pros: "Got their early."
Cons: "Took an extra 20 minutes to get our luggage as it came after everyone else's, of course."
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 fly about four times a year if not more. Always delays, missing my connections or running like a maniac trying to get to my connection. BUT. This was the first time in a very long time that I actually boarded on time."
Cons: "The crew members for some reason had attitudes. The two/ plus hours in the plane , not one cracked a smile..One,literally threw a tiny bag of snacks on my tray, which bounced off and she proceeded to step on them .... oh well. I'll take a not-so-nice hostess over delays and missing connections . Maybe I'll find an airlines that can give me both?"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "They gave us free tv to watch but my headphones didn't work in the jack. Even the pair they gave me didn't work. Also my flight was almost an hour late."
Pros: "It is really bad the seat to small for average person not leg room at all it is a flying school bus."
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"
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "-Complimentary Snack and beverage -Can pick your seats when booking -Changing Tables in restrooms -Entertainment options -Early boarding for families with small children"
Cons: "-Free Soda but charged for water -Had confirmed seats but then our party with 2 toddlers got split up -Semi convenient( rather small could hardly fit a 1 year old) changing table but then flight attendants threw a fit when a stinky diaper was changed in there. -Had to have special programs on device to even play anything, thought I had everything on for return flight to watch movies but nope still needed something extra Wifi only works for United App and Website -Waiting in the shorter line to preboard with our 2 toddlers only to be cut off by a Global Travel Program(?) family with 15+ people"
Pros: "Everything was the way a flight should be. Crew was nice and polite. T.v. was a plus, and a drink to wet your throat, also a plus"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't like"
Pros: "Clean Aircraft. Fantastic Gate Agent."
Cons: "Flight boarded, no auxiliary power unit so no A/C in plane and Pilot unable to start aircraft engines. Stuck in aircraft away from gate for 30 min with no A/C. Finally moved to gate to wait for repairs and allowed to disembark. Flight 2 hours late to Orlando. Direct TV no audio in seat 11F entire flight and I WAS TRYING TO WATCH THE WORLD SERIES!"
Pros: "Although the flight was cancelled due to the hurricane i got my money back."
Cons: "That the flight was late because the problen with the air condition and that cost me more money"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "That I finally made it to Orlando"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours... Took forever to get on plane once on plane people were in wrong seats so I had to keep getting up so they could figure out who was in the wrong seat. Just a mess. Even crew seemed annoyed. Finally got to Orlando at 3am suppose to be there at midnight."
Cons: "I was thoroughly disappointed when I realized that I had to pay to get any type of entertainment on the in-flight screen. That feels like zero effort on the part of the airline to make my flight enjoyable."
Cons: "After United made me miss my connecting flight, I got an alternate flight to a different airport, but not apology, no offer to upgrade, nothing. Already frustrated, and with my knees hitting the seat in front of me because the seats are too close together, a flight attendant scolded me when I dared put my leg in the aisle (which I often do on other airlines without incident). Once on the ground, I went straight to United's baggage office to see if my bag had followed me, and encountered two of the rudest people, cutting me off whenever I said anything more than they needed to enter into their computer. If your job is in customer service, be friendly, apologize when things go wrong, understand that your customers are your reason for being in business, and be helpful."
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"
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."
Cons: "Again, spicy snack. Long flight, you had to have the latest app on your phone or pad to watch a movie, flight from Houston to Boise had movie/tv monitors. Loading 4th group to the back of the plane makes it tough."
Pros: "After being so delayed, movies were free."
Cons: "We were delayed over 3 hours. I don't think I've ever flown with United and not been delayed. Plus they never offered us food on the flight, only whatever was complimentary. Just not a great experience."
Pros: "The seats were far more comfortable that frontier. I would have slept through most of my flight but unfortunately there was some pretty bad turbulence for the first half of the flight. Overall tho very comfortable."
Cons: "Kayak failed to alert me that MCO has an A & B bagge pickup areas and did not indicate which area I would find my luggage."
