Pros: "Yes, they My have lost it but they delivered it to make up for the mistakes."
Pros: "We were flying international and bags were checked through to our final destination AND AA did not charge us for our checked bags because it was booked as part of an international ticket. (which I didn't learn before flying so it was a pleasant surprise, most airlines want to charge you for the domestic leg of your flight)! They allowed us to board early and were very accommodating for our family of 7. I finally figured out the in air entertainment on our devises, which didn't seem to work on our previous flight. Snacks were minimal."
Pros: "Pre-check, loaded and landed on time. Great pilot on the way home back to O'Hare. All flight attendants were super to work with...no hassles/problems."
Cons: "No pillows for 6.25 hour flight:("
Pros: "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: "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 boarding process was good... and we got in early."
Cons: "The food was expensive. And no entertainment system."
Pros: "They were there when needed and got the whole party to the destination through TSA, and to the connecting flight gates after we landed. We were seated in the back of the plane, had a very short layover, and had to get from gates "N" to "D". Not being familiar with the airport, we probably would have missed our flights, had it not been for our "airport guide". If you can get your carry-on luggage checked for free, (only offered when the flights are full) this is an awesome service!"
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."
Cons: "For such a long flight at night we weren't offered a pillow to use or blanket and the seats are so small and cramped it was hard to get comfortable.one snack was offered the whole flight and the prices were too expensive to order."
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: "Flight was great! Check-in staff very helpful, crew fantastic, seats very comfortable, on-time departure and arrival... Loved it!"
Pros: "You need a not applicable option, as I did not partake in the food and there was not entertainment on this short flight. Quick flight! Arrived early!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, and their newer planes are really streamlined, but this wasn't one of them."
Cons: "The actual food they offer was sub-par or unavailable. Bring your own."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines had a very comfortable flight with great attendants and power to charge all your devices."
Cons: "The wifi service was really poor. I paid 49.99 for Gogo and I got the service of less than a 56.k modem."
Cons: "1. I sat at a window seat watching baggage handlers look at my bags with the fragile stickers all over both of them, then purposely flip them upside down and slam them on the conveyor to plane. Once I got to midland and opened my bags my boxes of Business supplies were damaged to the point that they have to be thrown away. If I could have insured my bags I would be suing Alaska airlines for the replacement of my damaged items, and the firing of the handlers that did the damage, including the loss of of money that I couldn't make because I couldn't do my job. 2. I informed stewardess that I was recovering from a dislocated shoulder and asked for a pillow or something that I could rest my arm on, that never happened and I had to sit for hours on the fight in discomfort and pain all the way. Thanks for making my flight a comfortable one. 3. I wasn't allowed to purchase anything on any flight with the cash in my pocket, including Wi-Fi / entertainment. Because I didn't have a credit card. This is a foul idea your company has. My cash should have been efficient enough. It is legal tender anywhere in the world but your airplanes. In my opinion I feel that your airlines suck and owes me the amount of 135.00 for the replacement of the items damaged, plus the amount of the tickets I paid for because I didn't receive the services in which should have been courteously given by your company. And apologies for that crappy treatment of me and my property. Just because I'm not one of your gold members or a credit card holder or first classed passenger shouldn't give your employees the right to treat anyone this way. I flew all the way from Alaska to midland to do a job and couldn't do it on time because of this treatment and damage. What would you do if this happened to you? Would you feel satisfied with how your company handles its PAYING CUSTOMERS???"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and plane wasn't overbooked, which was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, which was inconvenient!"

Pros: "It was a great trip. Thanks to your staff for helping me get home for Christmas on a budget!"
Pros: "It was super short. The hostess was super nice."
Pros: "Flight had open seats in fact I had a whole row to myself. Plane was clean and new, it even had plug-ins for every seat for charging devices. WiFi was was overpriced but they had movies you could rent and some free. Flights were on time."
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"
Pros: "Every was great, honestly"
Cons: "The Anchorage airport was FREEZING cold and it was August, maybe a little less AC IS IN ORDER"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."
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: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot!!!!"
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Pros: "The flight attendants were terrific. The food was marginal in business class"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
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."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Pros: "Crew members were very nice and pilot did a great job flying thru turbulence"
Cons: "I don't have any compliants"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."
Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"
Pros: "Was able to sleep for once. Nobody in center seat."
Cons: "Crying babies"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and after that they even lost my bags."
Pros: "The boarding was excellent. The staff was very friendly. The plane was clean."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to upgrade my seats because they were booked through a third party. I’ve never sat that far back in a airline."
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: "Not much to like"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"

Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
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: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."

Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "We we missed our connection they wouldn't help us at all."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"

Pros: "Entertainment. Center was great"
Cons: "Boarding has been made so complicated it's a joke."

Cons: "No music options for entertainment"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, smooth ride"
Cons: "Again 30 minute delay to get internet working. At least this time they communicated the issue."

Cons: "Full flight snd everyone seemed to have a carry on bag.."

Cons: "If I'd kept my original flight I'd have been over twelve hours late."
Cons: "Seats were too small."
Pros: "The pasta dinner in economy was quite good even by airline food standards. Flight attendants very good, very positive attitudes, which always makes for a better flight experience."
Cons: "The United boarding system sucks.....unless you have $$$$."
Pros: "United flight more seat room than LH international flight. Crew much friendlier and more accommodating."
Cons: "NO ONE sent me the United check in info, so I did not have the flight number. I had to get help in Munich from Passport Control. LH flight from Koeln unfriendly LH crew."
Pros: "Efficient crew, knew their business, executed their functions well."
Cons: "Small planes are inherently less comfortable, but that just goes with the package. Nothing you can do about it."
Cons: "The fact that you have to download an app to get any kind of entertainment on United is a bit ridiculous. Plus the food offerings are poor at best."
Cons: "Getting a partner airline, cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight, missing an important occasion, missing an entire day of vacation, no willingness to find more suitable outcomes."
Pros: "On time! Flight attendants were very personal & friendly"
Cons: "No legroom in economy"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "I felt spoiled with all the service and the ice cream was a special treat. I had never gotten ice cream on an oversea trip. Thanks."
Cons: "I wished that some of the children would have left the window blinds down so we could sleep."
Cons: "Wasted time at Orlando, missed my direct flight from Washington to Accra. I had to be re routed through Europe to Accra and spent more than 12 hrs more"
Pros: "For the most part the staff made an attempt to help me get onto a flight. I think."
Cons: "I had to go on my trip a few days later due to a work conflict. I never changed my itinerary because I didn’t think it mattered. I bought a new one way ticket on a different airline and went to get on my return flight that I had paid for and was still receiving emails about. I got to the airport to check in for my return flight and it had been canceled because I didn’t get on the first leg. I was never notified and they couldn’t get me on the flight I wanted because it was leaving in less than hour(which is a stupid rule). And to get me on a flight the next day would cost $2500. No thanks. And before anyone tells me that it’s in the fine print that they cancel a flight if you don’t show up, save it. We all know people don’t read all that. Be a human being. So if your plans change, make sure you officially change your plans, because they may go above, but probably not beyond. Oh and it took quite a long time for them to figure out what happened. If they had realized and I didn’t spend so much time on the phone with customer service, I might’ve been outside the hour window requirement."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "We missed the flight."
Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Pros: "the seating was very spaious"
Cons: "Didn’t get bags transferred from United flight from Washington DC to the flight from Munchen to Athens. We made it to gate just in time. Bags did not. Maybe there is some way to increase layover time On this international flight. Thanks"
Pros: "Economy Plus was well worth the small up charge."
Cons: "Took a long time to remove your dishes after the meal; never offered a mid flight snack."
Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Pros: "I try to fly with Lufthansa every time I travel to Turkey. They never fail to be great! Their service is very good. Their airplanes always seem to be new or kept up very well."
Pros: "The counter clerks in the airport were not friendly. But the inflight attendants and service was great."
Cons: "The counter staff were grumpy from the minute they arrived at the service gate desk."

Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Pros: "-Blue lighting and head space makes the plane feel more open. -Staff was patient considering the unfair backlash they were getting for the recent abuse of a United passenger. -Seats were well cushioned. -I arrived home to my family alive, unhurt, and safe."
Cons: "-2 hour delay (especially after I arrived 2 hours early) is unacceptable. -Overhead bins too low over our seats. We can't stand up straight at our seats making it very difficulty to get in and out of our seats. -Couldn't access entertainment on my Mac laptop. -Bathroom closets are too small. Floors in the bathroom were consistently wet because the sink is too small for people to wash their hands. -Two bathrooms for the majority of the passengers on the plane is just not enough and you know it. It's pretty uncivilized. It creates a line at the back of the plane covering at least 5 rows. Then, your aisles are too narrow. So we have to rub our bodies up against each other to let people squeeze through. -I think you guys could do better than one tiny bag of pretzel mix for a 5 hour flight. -Let's get upper management flying in economy across the country and see what they would change."
Cons: "We had to check our hand luggage and be charged EUR120.00 We should have been aware of this before we obtained the boarding pass..."
Pros: "On time. Enough space ."

Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"

Cons: "Tiny cramped plane"
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"
Pros: "The actual flight was great. It was very easy, the movies were new and good. The food was surprisingly good (as I was coming home from Italy). The crew was great and always nice"
