Cons: "Everything was great."
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."
Cons: "I was held on the tramsc and then missed my flight to Tucson. Am sitting hear for several hours waiting to get out of San Jose. You guys owe me!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "On time, good leg room, clean, pleasant crew"
Cons: "Must bring your own entertainment system or pay a screen to use on the flight."
Pros: "On line check in was very thorough. You received luggage tags at kiosk, and headed to bag drop. USB ports on planes!"
Pros: "I liked the service from the associates overall."
Pros: "My beef dinner wasn't horrible. It was mediocre."
Cons: "Where do I start... even though I booked my flights in late July for this late August trip, and even spoke to a representative over the phone about my dog being my carry on item, they never mentioned to me that my first row seats in First Class didn't allow dogs. I had chosen my seats so my partner and I could obviously sit together, but on the day of my flight(s) is when they decided to change my preferred seat which I paid to reserve and moved me into another row in First Class but without sitting by my partner. We had to get our seats fixed before each flight which should have either been alerted to me in the first place or automatically found us seats together. Also, the First Class check in before TSA was useless, as we had to go through the Assistance line anyway and it added considerable time to my trip. Also, once we were at the gate, First Class didn't even board first, but had to wait after three different groups of people were allowed to board first (families with children, injured people, and veterans). While boarding them with some priority is not the issue it's that first class should go before these, then those special groups, THEN general boarding. What was the allure and advantage of First Class? Once I boarded my flight to Seattle and had finally been approached (in flight) by my stewardess about my meal and drink options, she easily asked others before me and listed their options but with me stared blankly and gave me a judgmental look when I ordered champagne and dinner, something almost every other person before me had said to her. After that, getting service was a joke. I had to press the call button to even get her to come by when I needed hot water for my asthma cough attack, and she never even returned to me so I could continue getting more hot water (that I needed). I felt she was doing this out of racism, as I was one of the only brown people in First Class and as I observed, the only one she singled out for this behavior. Also, the in flight tablet to watch movies had grainy, low resolution and all my films were edited for children (curse words were badly edited out) and I think this is unnecessary for anyone unless they are seated with children. I couldn't imagine paying for that tablet and watching such low quality videos on it at a further extension of that cost. Finally, I was accosted by this stewardess again as we were landing for my dog's carrier bag not being shoved even further under the seat in front of me (bear in mind, I never moved my dog or her bag at any time after I had initially placed her under her seat) and honestly I found that to be pretty insulting and humiliating when all I was doing was sitting there. First Class came with literally no perks other than alcohol and subpar food, which I would not pay that extravagant price for ever again. In fact, it left me with no intention at all to continue ever using services with Alaska airlines, even though I have to travel to Alaska often."
Pros: "Everything is good. Service Excellence all around!"
Cons: "More options in snacks."
Pros: "Plane was clean and we landed safely."
Cons: "No seat assignment until after plane was boarding. Had no choice but to sit next to bathrooms. Plane was loud and uncomfortable."
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: "TMobile customers get an hour free WiFi"
Cons: "It took way too long to get a drink and the plane was hot as Satan's taint."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and kind. Happy even at 4 A.M.!"
Pros: "Appears that seats and space are roomier. Super clean."
Pros: "The Price first of all, Total Package for Both Plane AND Hotel was $680."
Cons: "Nothing really that I can Think of, they were on Time."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew and the ability to change seats when it was not a full plane."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of the 737, they are just not comfortable for me. But it is ok and the flight is not too long."
Pros: "Awesome services from the crew, very accommodating"
Cons: "It's all perfect"
Pros: "Free app , drinks and snack ."
Cons: "why didn't I get seats at the time of my reservation ? It was a hassle at times."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff. Delicious meal & great service. Bags arrived quickly. Altogether a very smooth flight."
Cons: "Felt pretty cramped. Passenger next to me kept bumping my feet."
Pros: "I was completely satisfied with my trip per usual :)"
Pros: "I've always had a good experience with Alaska Air"
Pros: "Pilot information/announcements."
Pros: "Easy, no bumps, all my luggage arrived."
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 awesome! Thank you! It was my first time flying Alaska & the ticket crew was great coming from Alaska to Denver. I will definitely fly Alaska airlines more now."
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!"
Cons: "Obliged pay for drink"
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 was wonderful and thank you for making it a positive experience."
Pros: "I love how prompt, if not always early, your boarding and flights were/are. While you're crew on all the flights weren't effusively warm they were all polite and cordial enough. Over all I would very much like to fly Alaska Air again, partially because it would mean I'd get to see my newfound boyfriend in Alaska again as well. Thanks for everything, and keep up the great work!"
Pros: "The service was very goog"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Charged extra for any checked bags. Better start paying attention to southwest they take care of the passengers needs better"
Pros: "has better leg room than American airlines has."
Pros: "We did not have any food on the plane, so I can't rate it. The fruit pack looked like a good choice someone had near me. The price of the food seems cheap compared to how much they charge to eat in the airports"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable for long trips and red eye flights. If I was able or knew better, I would've flown first class."
Pros: "The flight was fine. It was nothing extraordinary!"
Pros: "The options for entertainment are nice. There's a large variety of shows to watch, even some free. You can rent a tablet or watch on your own device."
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: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."
Cons: "The Anchorage airport was FREEZING cold and it was August, maybe a little less AC IS IN ORDER"
Cons: "On time flight"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."
Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"
Pros: "That we finally arrived."
Cons: "That we didn't arrive even remotely close to when we were supposed to."
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: "Total Experience of Flying on this Airline ."
Cons: "No Comment."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Pros: "Great flight attendants and very clean"
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: "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: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Flew business class and my 1st choice on the menu had run out. I ended up not eating."
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "Great service, polite staff"
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats, even for my girlfriend, who is 5'6""
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: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Pros: "Just not enough room to accommodate that many people for such a long flight. And felt neglected and grouchy by the end of the trip."
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"
Pros: "plane was farily empty. Who doesn't like that, other than Delta, haha. Nice workers, smooth flight."
Cons: "Delta comfort was very tight. I'm 6 foot tall and my knees were hitting the chair in front of me the whole flight."
Pros: "Timing and Service"
Cons: "Space between seats too reduced"
Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."
Pros: "Dish TV"
Cons: "Pilots were coming from an international flight that was delayed. They then landed at the absolute opposite end of the airport AND had to clear customs. When we boarded they said the pilots had landed. 60 minutes later they arrived, 30 minutes after that we took off. Missed connecting flight in Seattle. Poor communication during delay."
Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."
Pros: "I liked the service of the crew members and the Margarita was super strong."
Cons: "The seats are really close together. It made it uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "Left on time, got in early, super easy flight. Baggage was quick."
Cons: "My flight from anchorage was delayed over an hour so I miss my connecting flight and had to stay over night in the Seattle airport..."
Pros: "The staff of Dekta were welcoming as well as helpful. The flight was professionally run and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "The auxiliary power went down before we took off. However, the flight captain assured passengers that procedures would be followed to assure our safety. We waited on the plane for 10 minutes and then took off. Thanks to staff for following safety procedures."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Kept us updated throughout a long delay."
Cons: "We should have reached our destination at 7:40PM. We finally arrived about 9:50pm. We were held at the gate for about two hours while a mechanical issue was solved. The plane was not equipped with WiFi/internet and the entertainment was poor. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "staff was friendly"
Pros: "This was my shortest flight for the day, just over 2 hours and it was a bigger plane, had monitors in the seat backs, served drinks and snack."
Cons: "I think entertainment should be free. There should be a charge for wifi, because people can survive without their computer/phone for a few hours. But, if you have already put the monitors on the plane, how much extra money per year would airlines lose by offering a free movie...?"
Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."
Cons: "Poor service. Will never fly with Delta again."
Cons: "They didn't land due to fog, making me miss all my other flights. Bags were not put on redirected flight to Beijing. Bags still missing 3 days later. Trip has been put on hold till bags arrive in Jakarta."
Cons: "We finally got toward the runway then had to sit there for about 25 minutes because there was a technical error."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the gate agent was efficient"
Cons: "We not only left 45 minutes late, but there was no beverage service on the flight."
Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"
Cons: "Not real happy with getting charged 25 dollars for a bag when I am MVP with Alaska Airlines, was under impression both airlines are together."
Pros: "On time, and great fare"
Pros: "The space on the flight"
Cons: "The connecting flight I had to Seattle had a 30min layover, and was practically gated on the opposite side of the airport in SLC. I had to run in order to make the last-minute boarding. Kind of a cutting it close, but I made it none the less"
Cons: "Sat on the plane on the runway for three hours before they finally decided to let us off and that is was going to take longer to fix the plane. Could have at least let us get off and back on while waiting for the technician."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Boarding passes were hand written, very 1980s or earlier"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are way to close together! No lag room for a person 5 feet 11 inches. I was uncomfortable during the entire flight! They served one beverage and that was it. They charged $6 per person to reserve a specific seat in advance! I think I will drive next time, because Sun Country treats their customers like cattle in a stall! (Crammed seating)"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Some seats were loose."
Cons: "Tightest seat I have experienced 90 minutes to get luggage at carousel Offered drinks only once"
Pros: "Wings didn’t fall off"
Cons: "Both flights each direction were delayed and late and luggage was a nightmare with major waiting times (the whole flight waited over an hour for luggage). The flight delays were related to staffing emergencies. Luggage seemed like 1 guy was working. With their fees, they push you to check your bags but don’t have the service to back it up. Do not recommend if your schedules are tight."
Cons: "baggage was slow, missed our shuttle."
Pros: "The thing I liked most was the non-stop flight from ANC -> MSP. Seats were fine, didn't feel more overcrowded than usual. Crew was polite and boarding was fairly quick."
Cons: ""Lowest fairs!!" and then on check in they nickel and dime you with extra costs for even a carry on AND to choose a seat that you already bought!! I mean, you don't have to. You could always just wait until check in at the airport and get thrown into a middle seat. Saving extra money was what pushed me over the edge here, but after all the fees after booking was paid for and experience, I would have gladly paid the extra money to fly Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "My father also had a seat that would not recline. Not good for a 5+ hour overnight flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Late departure, dirty plane, hidden expenses"
Cons: "The seats don’t give much leg room and no plug ins available for phone/iPad. Guess I’m used to Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early at destination"
Cons: "There was no overhead room for carry on bags when I boarded at row 11. I just had a cloth bag and had to keep it at my feet- not comfy leg room for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Seats are TINY even for myself (5'5 130lbs). Wish the flights had wifi too! I'm sure that's not always feasible though."
Pros: "Inexpensive non-stop flight"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Fast boarding and great service. Funny piolet was a a plus."
Cons: "Paying for tablet use during a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Poor seats, no reclining. No head rest. Most uncomfortable flight ever. No WiFi. Ran out of dvds for movies before row ten. Offers nothing! If your going to be a budget no amenities sure line ADVERTISE IT! Don't fool people. Never again!!! Terrible"
Pros: "No problems boarding. Can't rate food or entertainment as had neither."
Cons: "Cabin was uncomfortably warm. Attendant was unhelpful and rude when I had trouble getting my bag into overhead."
Pros: "We loved that the plane took off each time on time."
Cons: "Cabin was about 85 degrees the entire flight"
Pros: "The people on the plane was great"
Cons: "The people at the ticket counter and gate liked their jobs as the were talking down to the customer and not to the customer"
Pros: "Don't know why more airlines don't board from the back to the front like Sun Country - WAY more efficient and very smooth. The crew were funny and cordial. I had sprained my ankle on my vacation and was on crutches. Employees at the airport were quick to supply me with a wheel chair to my gate and had one waiting for me on the arriving end when we landed."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable for an overnight flight. Sleeping was impossible. The headrests need the adjustable 'wings' like most other airlines so you at least have something for your head to rest against. Seats barely recline so even with a pillow your chin is in your lap. Nice to have the full can of pop but a pretzel or peanut snack would have been nice for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The employees were so attentive & caring. Very accommodating. Was pleasantly surprised."
Pros: "My active duty husband was unable to travel with me due to work obligations. With my dependent military ID, the Sun Country representative allowed my bag to be a couple of pounds overweight without charging me extra. I could have taken things out to hand carry, but this was so appreciated, as I know it's not the standard practice without the active duty sponsor accompanying me. I spoke with a couple of other fliers on our seats who were also flying Sun Country for the first time. We all agreed that all the representatives were polite. It made the experience good and we all agreed we would fly with them again."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 30 minutes with no explanation by the crew."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "The flight departed 30 minutes late."
Pros: "The ease of booking and the competitive pricing"
Cons: "I paid $15 for a premium seat and it was no different from the normal seats, it was just further forward on the aircraft."
Pros: "The boarding was good: they bordered main cabin with very back earlier and then middle but explained that, it worked great (we were in the middle, i think it makes it wasier when there arent so many rows of people to drag your self past)"
Cons: "I did not recieve any reminders of my flight beforehand (delta sends email and now also a great app to pre check in that id been using, so i got worried when i wasnt reminded in fear they didn't know i was scheduled to fly ) Also no snack service, yes still beverage service, so good thing i packed a granola bar!"
Cons: "Held over an hour on both flights to fix mechanical problems on these very old planes..i won't be flying again"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Friendly, accommodating."
Pros: "Sun Country is the best airline in the world -"
Cons: "The seats in the row right behind 1st class are extremely narrow. Customers should be informed of that when booking or boarding."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional and helped people with their bags. There wasn't a big difference between this airline and other bigger airlines. Some flights will be better than others depending upon the crew and passengers and weather, but passengers are packed in one lost all the flights."
Cons: "Took a long time for passengers to board and "line" was clogged up at the gate by people waiting. People need to get out of the way of those boarding. Ran out of video machines by the time they got halfway down the aisle."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Plane was clean."
Cons: "We ran into rough weather and I know that the crew cannot control that."
Pros: "Everything was great. Thanks"
Pros: "Nice smooth ride. Service was great. Very friendly. Great landing in rough weather."
Pros: "We were assigned to the exit row, so had more leg room. It was a new plane and very nice."
Cons: "It was an overnight flight and we could not recline the seats, which made sleep impossible."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Food options were poor"
Pros: "The San Francisco based crew and customer service was very welcoming, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "On the return flight (out of their hub airport!), their online system failed so it didn't capture that we had prepaid both our checked bags nor our seat selection. When we arrived at the ticketing counter they were essentially accusational about the issue. We showed the confirmation page on our cell phone and even logged into our mobile banking app to show them and still had to argue about paying again. On top of that, they acknowledged the system was having issues and would do absolutely nothing to help us get seats together (my husband and I), let alone anywhere near what we had selected during the online check-in process (we paid extra for an aisle and middle towards the front of the plane, and they gave us two middle seats in the back of the cabin). There were four empty seats in first class, and they wouldn't even bump up a frequent flyer to give us seats together in coach. Not once did anyone apologize, ask how they could help, or just try to be helpful. Both "managers" were clearly poorly trained in handling these situations and defensive and dismissive (walking away while we were speaking). They didn't even offer a free meal voucher. Nothing was done to help rectify the situation. It was honestly shocking how terrible of an experience it was - no indication that they felt we were a paying customer. There were so many little things they could have done even without changing our seats that would have made the situation better. I will never fly this airline again, out of principle, and will absolutely share my experience with everyone I know. If someone from Sun Country reads this, the managers' names are Oniekey Brown and Jolynn Carpenter. I would suggest your management chain have a conversation with both of them and highly suggest training."
Pros: "Nothing. The experience was awful"
Cons: "The flight got delayed by over 4 hours without explaination as to why. There was no one to ask at the counter. When I called the number they said the wait time was 30 mins to speak with a Rep. As I was waiting and automated system started talking, saying the reason you have a longer wait than expected time is because Sun Country is trying to incorporate new innovations. You're reaction might be it's crazy and you're right it is. After all this I waited quietly the rest of the evening. Came time for on boarding, the team was highly UNTRAINED. I watched them switched TWO mothers with infants from line tonline multiple times the lines got out of control people were literally jumping lines. No sense of leadership nor organization. Literally take this as a warning from someone who has had multiple bad experiences with the same airlines in the last year and half. I am done with Sun Country!"
Pros: "I like that SunCountry flys directly to my most important locations,"
Cons: "Can't spring for a bag of pretzels or something?"
Pros: "Crew were great, seat sizes were comfortable & overheads were bigger than other domestic airlines (a small thing that made a big difference to boarding)."
Cons: "A complimentary snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Had window seats"
Cons: "Why are you sending me this survey at 2:31 am?"
Cons: "No complimentary snakes No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "I usually pre-check in, but I know you're working on your system currently, so it wasn't a big deal. Just had to stand in the check-in line and I didn't have bags to check, so the additional time I needed to spend at the airport to check in was all I didn't like."
Pros: "Everything was expeditious, staff was courteous and the flight went smooth. Thanks Sun Country Air!"
Pros: "Seamless onboarding and check in."
Cons: "Not much leg room on plane, no snacks"
Pros: "If you show up without a seat assignment, (which you pay for) they will assign you a seat. If you're lucky it's exit row. If you're not, it's middle near the toilet"
Cons: "Buckled and dimed for any extras"
Pros: "Crew is excellent."
Cons: "Need check-in kiosks where you can print boarding pass without waiting in line. I checked in online but couldn't print my pass because I don't have a printer. I still had to wait in line like everyone else who hadn't yet checked in at both airports and wasn't checking a bag either. Delta sends the boarding pass right to your phone."
Pros: "Everything was on time and there were no problems."
Cons: "Narrow seats. Not even a snack on the flight? You can however buy lunch if you want to."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable overnight flight."
Cons: "Tried to reschedule flight took 2 days"
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I would like the formal return of beverages and snacks. I understand the lack thereof is due to the virus. I think the airlines are doing a good job of staying within safety recommendations."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Pros: "Crew members were all very pleasant and personable. A very special experience with the local ticket agent / boarding agent (double duty) in Guadalajara: Maria Hernandez (or perhaps Fernandez) who was pleasant, professional, helpful and even called us respectfully by name ("Mr. and Mrs. Petrusek") She is an outstanding representative of American Airlines! Gracias to her!!"
Cons: "Not a thing! We live in Mexico and we usually fly Volaris...I think AA just became our favorite airline!"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO. I’d have appreciated more of a heads up than as I’m boarding."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything at all"
Cons: "They have to add electronic devices or charge plug on it"
Pros: "Really disappointed as my bags was not check thru.It was rechecked at London and British airway charged me for my baggage. I want to make sure that my way back to Oslo London London San Diego has no charge . It is an international flight and I am allowed 23kg one checked bag ."
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helpful"
Cons: "Did not fly out of Ontario, I was being led to fly out of LAX since there was a delay. Ended up flying out of John Wayne Airport."
Pros: "We missed out connecting flight. We landed at 730am our connecting flight was supposed to leave at 750 it actually left at 744am"
Cons: "Our connecting flight left early"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival. Comfortable journey. Our pilot was a woman! Go girl power!"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work. You couldn’t download the American Airlines app. The crew forgot to give me my complimentary drink. After attempting for 10 minutes, Gave up."
Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."
Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."
Cons: "Delay, first told it was weather related, then mechanical. Re booked on a flight by AA that would never make connection. Paid over $1,000 for a flight leg that one way and direct on another airline (Alaska air) was $281.00 and the agent took so long to find redirect flight that they couldn't book. Total mess! While struck on the second leg and speaking with AA customer service about the reschedule I was told that they didn't have the ability to rectify the error because they no longer had control of my ticket and that I had to take into consideration that three was an event in San Antonio that caused delays network wide that added tio the initial issue... HOGWASH! 1) it was another AA issue where an AA aircraft drive of the runway while I was in flight on the first errant leg. 2) if they had just been straight from the outset, I wouldn't have been delayed. I will never fly AA AGAIN!"
Cons: "Ct for. R"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed and we would have missed our connecting flight to BOS. The next flight out was the following day. We took it upon ourselves to get re-booked on United Airlines. The American travel agent was pleasant but we would have been out of luck if we weren't proactive and frequent travelers trying every flight option available. Finally, after over an hour on the phone we resolved the issue through another carrier."
Cons: "Nearly being bumped off the flight. A tight, uncomfortable seating space."
Pros: "It wasn't as terrible as the 1st leg of the return flight"
Cons: "Bad enough the long part of my trip ove seas had no wifi but then the 4 hour domestic flight did not have it either. I had planned to put my flight time to good use and catch up on work so i did not go back to a mountain of work but that never happened. Also, I've never been to an airport where you exit the boarding doors in the terminal then head down stairs to the tarmac to board a bus that make a complete lap of the terminal going near every AA plane obviously trying to figure out which one they need to drop us off at. If can get this close to losing people I now understand how luggage gets lost so often."
Cons: "Ear headphone jack would not turn down, you could hear the show from three seats away and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her for some different headphone to see if it would help. She acted like I was stupid and said "well did you turn it down?" Of course I tried that. I was very taken back by how she acted."
Pros: "The gate attendants were professional and the flight attendants were very good. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "i had my boarding pass and chose my seat some time ago, in row 4. When I checked in, the AA representative switched my boarding card and I was told that my seat was no longer available. When I got to the gate, I spoke to the gate attendant. There were several people also speaking to them about their seats. I did not have a seat assigned to my boarding pass, so I stood until the entire plane boarded and the gate attendants could sort things out. In the end, I was given a seat at the back of the plane, even though booked my seat some time ago and am a Sapphire member. When I boarded, there was no room for my carry-on luggage. The flight attendant already understood what happened. She immediately took my bag, and found a space at the front of the airplane. This is the second disappointing flight in a row in 2 weeks I have had with AA. I'm not sure if it's just bad luck, or has something to do with the company. I had flown with U.S. Airways for years and never experienced any major issues."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Aircraft was Boeing 737, seats were small and uncomfortable. No personal entrainment. They did have a streaming entertainment option through in-flight wifi, but tou have to pay per movie and no complimentary program! Even Delta airline have a selection of complimentary in addition to premium paid options."
Pros: "New Aircraft with WiFi for short duration on 320. Friendly Crew. On Time Departure"
Pros: "Mechanically safe Entertainment monitor and USB charging"
Cons: "Loading up a plane to sit in for >1.5 hrs waiting for a pilot and de-icing rushed service"
Pros: "Nothing. THis airline is the pits. Stay far far away."
Cons: "Everything. Desk agents are rude and unhelpful, airlines break regularly, flights always delayed, baggage always lost, awful."
Pros: "4 hours late leaving El Paso causing us to miss flight out of Phx!!! So booked thru LAX and arriving 5 hours later !"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and the in-flight movie was great!"
Cons: "A teenager sitting behind me kept putting her feet and knees at the back of my chair making it very uncomfortable for me the entire flight."
Pros: "On time and no issues"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Nice crew, plane was decent"
Cons: "Delayed waiting on a crew person to get to the airport to fly to Dallas. We had to wait an hour at the gate. They didn't tell us what the delay was for until we had been waiting 30m."
Pros: "No accountability -- just a recording telling me my flight was being rebooked and I would arrive 14 hours later than scheduled on New Year's Eve. Totally unacceptable, awful service."
Pros: "From start to finish the flight faced problems: unscheduled stop for refueling, change in planes for mechanical problems, emergency medical intervention, and more. Yet at every stage the flight crew and gate staff did an outstanding job communicating and seeking to alleviate passenger woes. With delays, we missed connections, and yet AA worked wonderfully to find alternatives. At the end of the day, we arrived at our destination, and even our luggage made the trip successfully! Wonderful courtesy, adaptability, and determination to serve. Thank you."
Pros: "Flight operated on time between PHL and PHX."
Cons: "Pilot provided no communication about the trip prior to takeoff; pilot provided minimal communication about the trip while in flight. Although her service was adequate, the first class flight attendant Marilyn never called any passenger by name. No pre-arrival mints were served."
Cons: "There was a snow delay in Chicago, but nobody offered assistance when we were on the ground. We felt abandoned by American Airlines because we asked three different people for assistance and they didn't seem to want to take on the problem. They were like Pontius Pilate, and "washed their hands" of us!!!"
Pros: "Good experience."
Pros: "On the way there, it was a newer plane in nicecondition, comfortable, entertainment was ok."
Cons: "AA IOS app - always problems getting the mobile boarding passes. This time is just like every other. Never a problem before with US Air or Southwest Food - There and back, sandwiches and non-snack items were sold out by the time crew could get to the rows in the back Plane on the way back was a certified POS. Seats were ancient and broken, Engine couldn't start - twice, and no entertainment"
Cons: "The scheduled departure time was moved forward, thus creating confusion and inconvenience."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"
Pros: "I don't usually complain, and I have never responded to this kind of rating request, but, the American Airlines flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Phoenix was too inept to ignore. Firstly, I wasn't assigned a seat when I booked the flight. Then, at the time I checked in, as no regularly priced seat was reserved for me, I was forced to pay for a premium seat, for both the outbound and inbound segments. Secondly, no snacks were offered on the outbound flight, because "the ground crew forgot to supply the plane". This didn't bother me, but it did infuriate some of the other passengers. Finally, I paid for the GoGo inflight internet, but the download speed was sooooo slow, I finally gave up."
Pros: "Crew was nice and professional. It was an early morning flight and I was given the right surroundings to sleep."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight. I couldn't even find a headphone jack. The seats and aisle are too narrow. After landing early we had to wait 10-15 minutes on the taxing because the gate was occupied"
Cons: "United, along with American, is a horrible carrier, and the next time it files for bankruptcy, needed to be allowed to remain our of business. The employees don't care about service at all, it's no longer part of their culture."
Pros: "Team worked well together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for my device. An educational label would help."
Cons: "Need power outlets at seats."
Cons: "Flight was already scheduled to get in late--around midnight. Didn't get in until ~2 am."
Pros: "I would suggest upgrading to a bigger seat for this 4.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The crew was very nice...excellent choices in entertainment...and I appreciate the perk of Preferred Boarding in group 2."
Cons: "We had to deplane 2X for maintenance issues. It was frustrating because it caused a 3-hour delay...however, we do appreciate the safety aspect and would rather be safe than sorry. You also ask us to rate food, but they do not provide food...what do we rate...the soda choices, the teeny bags of snack mix."
Cons: "The Capt. Lying to Us and after 40 minutes sitting on the rap being held. The Captain came on and said the delay was Dorothea baggage boys loading the plane aft heavy and incorrectly loaded they had to totally remove every bag and reload the entire baggage and move most of the bags to a forward compartment . Many passengers wanted off but they crew refused Another reason not to fly United I am cancelling my return flight an returning on another airline! United is e worse airline in business today. Do not book on United Everett Johnson Bellevue, Washington"
Cons: "Roundtrip flight to Seattle with a layover, first flight went without incident, so far so good. On the flight back (during a layover) literaly 5 minutes till boarding the plane, the pilot is ready to go, the people are standing in line, United decides it wont make enough $ on the flight and gives it to an Ontario flight. We are canceled and now have to wait 4 additional hours in the airport. Was told it was air traffic control that messed up, not United, which was not even possible and an obvious untruth. Was offered a complimentary bottle of water for the trouble. Classic united."
Pros: "No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner"
Pros: "Boarding was fast, staff were friendly, even though it costs the direct tv is nice."
Cons: "Wifi was in and out and I paid for it, no free food, no free entertainment options"
Pros: "Never took flight"
Cons: "Never took flight"
Cons: "The delay ruined our evening and made the expense of a hotel for the night and babysitting moot because we might as well have flown the next morning. So much for seeing friends in Seattle on Thursday night. A 2 hour delay means we just get to sleep in an airport hotel for no reason."
Cons: "This is wrong. I should be reimbursed for the extra I paid on the Newark to Seattle leg. I booked for economy extra/comfort and got only economy (coach). And with no apologies, no explanation. also,,... The flight was delayed by > half hour (but this happens). However, the flight attendants were somewhat unprofessional in their language.and attitude."
Cons: "Gate crew was rude."
Pros: "Everything you are.."
Cons: "No room in the seating, nor in the overhead."
Pros: "Lining up in groups"
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"
Cons: "I was seated next to a morbidly obese man that smelled of feces so bad people many seats away had to cover their noses, overflowed his seat, taking up half of mine, and was watching disgusting pornography on his phone for half the flight, not that I was looking, but it was a bit hard to not notice, he wasn't trying to hide it. The power outlet under my seat did not work, so my phone died, and my armrest(left) was missing it's headphone jack so I couldn't use the in-flight entertainment, not that it would have mattered anyway, the fat man beside me was so huge, his fat covered my armrest so I had no access to the remote. The guy on my right, in the window seat, while not fat, wasn't small either and hogged two armrests, leaving me with none. I had to hold my seatback with my left hand the entire flight because there was nowhere to put my left arm without either holding it straight out in front of me, or laying them on the fat mans stomach which was folded over the armrest to my left. At one point I called a flight attendant and asked if they had any kind of a pillow or something to help my situation because the position I was forced to sit in was horribly uncomfortable and did not support my back, she looked at me confused, said they have nothing like that, and immediately vanished without any suggestion of a seat change or anything, just confused stare and then bolted away. All in all a pretty traumatizing experience, worst flight of my life."
Pros: "The crew and staff were patient with so many situations out of their control. The Huston maintenance are on top of their game."
Cons: "1st plane was taken out of commission because there were loose/missing rivets from panels 2nd plane was taken out of commission because hot air was was coming through the vents and causing sensors to go off 3rd plane was taken put of commission because there was issues with cabin pressure. 4th plane had a row of oxygen masks down. The flight was delayed until a tech could come in and service it. The flight was further delayed because there was a missing receptacle in one of the lavatories."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed. Missed our connecting flight. Ruined my plans and trip"
Cons: "Seats, no signs indicating to dl app b4 flight. No charging station to charge personal devices if using to watch entertainment on a long flight"
Pros: "The seating was way to tight, the leg room cramped absolutely most uncomfortable. It was over booked and people were left behind. It was also very bumpy ( I know not your fault) so therefore seatbelt lights were on for most of the flight"
Cons: "Most everything"
Cons: "We are two active duty members flying to take our son to our parents for us to get ready to go on deployment. When we arrived there the line was almost an hour and a half just to check bags we almost missed our flight. When we got to the counter ans told him we were both military flying on orders and asked to be tsa checked he had no clue what we were talking about so this kind woman helped him do his job, needless to say he was a manager. Once we got out tickets the seat assignment said see agent so we did. He hands us our tickets and we are a plane length apart. Let me mind you we both just left our child for a 8 month deployment overseas. We asked the guy if it was possible to get seats together wouldnt even acknowledge we were speaking to him. So we tried again he held his hand in my face and told me he serviced me and to please step back. Ive been bawling 2 hours straight from having to leave our son. So we stepped back. Then in the line this couple comes up and they were looking for seats together, i kid you not he gave them seats together! I will NEVER EVER fly united every again. Thank goodness for this kind gentle to switch me seats on the plane because i was crying i had to leave my fiance after i just had to say goodbye to our son for 8 months!! I was so shocked!!! I will tell every single person i know to never use united! You guys should be ashamed of our company! I will inform every active duty member i come across!"
Cons: "The airplane was dirty. There was stuff on the window, the tray table. I get you run a tight schedule but if I didn't have Purell and a Kleenex I would have been really disgusted with the food and coffee or pop splatters all over the window and tray table."
Cons: "All my flights were delayed due to weather in airports that were not a part of either my destination or point of origin. Not a single United employee apologized. There was no one to talk to on the 800 number, no one in the airport. No offers for any sort of vouchers or compensation was offered. The United website did my give accurate updates for when the flights would be rescheduled and there were two representatives in the airport to handle several hundred customers. When I finally did get on a flight, the flight attendants pushes the beverage cart right past my seat without offering anything. I asked one of them if I could have a cup of water and her reply was a very curt 'no'. Rude flight attendants on top of everything else? And the final straw came when a mechanical error delayed my flight home and I missed my ride from the airport and had to pay for an expensive cab ride. The airline representative I spoke to once we landed told me "you should be grateful you even got home. I don't care if you have to spend money on a can, you look like you can afford it." There are no words for how absolutely unacceptable your employees behaved, and how unaccountable and disorganized your airline is. I don't care if it costs me hundreds of dollars more, I will NEVER give your company another dollar."
Cons: "Everything. United is the worst everytime. I will never fly them again!!"
Cons: "Lost all my luggage"
Pros: "The ticket agent boarded military service men and women with priority. For the delayed flight, free in-flight entertainment and wifi was offered."
Cons: "The flight was delayed taking off two hours. Once boarded we sat for an additional amount of time. The flight attendant offered the option for those that wanted to deplane at some point and when asked how much longer we would be sitting she said it was another 30 minutes waiting on 15 people."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Seats are small and cramped."
Pros: "Had a lot of leg room"
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat and the line to talk to the agents was long with only one guy and the he didn't help anyone til it was almost time to board. Probably one of the most stressful flights"
Pros: "Was in first class and food was good however I don't think the crew knew when to set the alcohol off to a few people"
Cons: "What I didn't like about the first class was the fact of the crew gave out a little bit too much alcohol to a few people and at which point they became belligerent and bumping into people and Isles just a little to satisfied with that and would hope that would change in future"
Cons: "Man at security made me check my bag even though it fit in the test structure. My suitcase handle was then ripped off and the fabric was ripped when I picked up at baggage claim. Additionally, another person on my flight had the same first and last name as me and we had been assigned the same seats. Luckily there was another seat but it was obviously a bit mistake on uniteds part. I really dislike united. Their employees are stressed, rude, and entitled. There's no need to say things like "hurry up" or make people check bags when they don't need to...I used to fly United a lot but I will now make every effort to not fly this airline again."
Cons: "Router tracker"
Pros: "Flight was excellent."
Cons: "Same as above. In the future I will be bringing my own snacks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes because of a tow bar malfunction. This made for a narrow window to make my connection of 25 minutes"
Pros: "I liked the distance between my seat the seat in front of me. Hands down, this is one of the most spacious planes to fly on in economy class. I also appreciated the attendant giving me the entire can of club soda rather than pouring it over ice. Staff was communicative, and the pilot provided us periodic updates on our speedy progress and early arrival. Cleanliness of the plane was also well appreciated. Even the bathroom towards the end of the flight was in satisfactory condition. Above all, I loved that there wasn't a television in my face the entire flight. Nice to have a break from seeing screens."
Cons: "There were signs on our tray tables indicating that charging stations were under our seats. They weren't working. Although the flight attendant came on the intercom with the pilot stating the charging happened in a wave around the cabin, this was a lie. Both my neighbors in my row had devices plugged in the entire 5+ hour flight and they didn't charge a bit. It's disappointing that a small half ounce bag of peanuts is too much of an expense for the airline nowadays. Given the amount of time in the air, I believe a full meal provided by the airline would have been closer to meeting basic needs of your average metabolism. United fell far from expectations on this aspect."
Cons: "I had a carry on but they said the over head compartments were too full. So they grabbed the bag from as I was boarding. They then lost my bag. Now United is refusing to send my bag even though it has been found by the airport lost and found police in a city that was not my destination."
Pros: "We paid to upgrade so comfort was better than most but seats are not wide enough. I don't know how a larger or obese person would travel."
Cons: "Paying for tv and movies. Seats way too narrow. A typical low grade economy seat has zero room to move or legroom if you're carry on is under the seat in front. Seems like it's gotten worse over last ten years... Isn't it dangerous to have us all crammed in there like that?"
Pros: "Overall flight N/A good"
Cons: "While the tv on the plane is something that I could see people enjoying, the controls are located right where an arm rest is resulting in flipping channels changing contrast and all other things I had no idea what was going on, as nobody passed that information."
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane was clean. Pilots provided rapid updates"
Cons: "Waiting to leave because of engine problems"
Pros: "There was a really awesome guy flight attendant working this flight. I liked his personality. He actually talked to people."
Cons: "We never heard the reason for the delay, which I thought was odd because it was 30+ minutes of wondering what was going on. This flight had wi-fi, but I couldn't figure out how to log on, so I didn't use it."
Cons: "Both my connections were late. First over 2 hours, the second 45 min. The salad I spent $10 on was horrible. Overall just a bad experience with the airline- wish I could get my money back."
Pros: "We had to have seats assigned at the gate and the representative gave us exit aisle seats. Upon entering the plane the flight attendants were very friendly, funny and helpful."
Pros: "I traveled down south from Anc to Pns, rsking my mom and aunt home.The attendants in Anchorage and Denver were helpful. Leaving Denver we didn't have a wheelchair for my aunt and the attendant called several times, finally someone came for my mom, but my aunt had to walk. In Houston no one very came with wheel chairs and they both had to walk, then a gentleman came with a cart, but could only drive so far. When we arrived at the team they were no wheel chair attendants available."
Cons: "Normally this wouldn't matter however my mom has a prosthetic hip that made one side of her body shorter than the other and she has a bad limp. My aunt has rheumatoid arthritis in her feet and they swell really bad when she walks alot. Flying to Anchorage Delta had greattach customer support at every point. Flying to Pensacola United had little customer support staff."
