Pros: "Friendly flight crew"

Pros: "Very friendly! Accomadateing! Fun!"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."

Cons: "The only bad thing was on one of flights there was no changing table in the bathroom I used."

Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Crew wasn't too polite. Smacked a few people with the cart"

Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. No delays."
Cons: "Some of the foot Wells are much smaller than other and present a very real problem both for baggage and tall folks. It seems unfair to pay the same price as someone who gets vastly more foot space and the airline is really doing its passengers a disservice by not making it explicitly clear that certain seats are more physically constrained than others. (737 isle and center seats."

Pros: "Staff was awsome"
Cons: "Had to sit next to some one that was too big to big for the seat and end up taking up half of my seat . Not the staffs falt but they could see i could not sit properly in my seat."

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "I thought I had reserved an aisle seat but I was in the middle when I boarded."

Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable and on time."
Cons: "People were instructed to line up in a certain area for general boarding. However, after boarding started, people just walked up through the first class line and instead of telling them to get into the correct line they let them board...and just left those of us in the correct lane to wait."

Pros: "Excellent Crew - I flew standby, so have great gate agents and flight attendants makes all the difference when you’re hoping for a seat. In flight they are professional and personable and keep you up to date on what you need to know! Plus, I’m always happy when my flights have USB ports so I’m fully charged when I deplane."
Cons: "I always want more leg room or a little more room under the seat in front of me. But I didn’t upgrade for a roomier seat and there was more than enough overhead space, so truly can’t complain about it!"

Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"

Pros: "Usb port to charge your electronics!"

Pros: "Everyone was incredibly nice and professional"
Cons: "The only complaint would be there were no more cheese and fruit plates left by the time they got to 30 C"

Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"

Pros: "I was heading to Scottsdale on Alaska for a Bachelorette party. Alaska took notice and gave me and my friends some bubbly to start the celebration off right! I was so impressed!"

Cons: "The bathrooms are shockingly tiny!"

Pros: "Boarding was so quick and easy"

Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"

Pros: "People were nice"
Cons: "They lost my bag...delayed our flights...and made me go mentally insane"

Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"

Pros: "I like the free texting!!!"

Pros: "Spacious and comfortable Boeing 737-900 which was not over-booked. Lots of room and efficient boarding process. Friendly crew."

Pros: "Flew Frontier on the way to my destination and Alaska on the way home, the difference was night and day. Everything was better, the seats were comfier, the tray table was larger, there was a wifi option, complimentary food and drink, much more professional staff, even the plane noise was much quieter and to top everything off we got home over 30 minutes earlier than expected. Alaska is definitely my new preference."

Pros: "I really like Alaska Airlines overall. Their planes are newer, have power outlets at every seat and the oversize luggage compartment make it easier for everyone to fit with their carry on bags. Way more comfortable than their main competitor at our little airport."
Cons: "I got a notice to check in the day before my flight, which is fine except that they had completely changed my flight to a different one with no prior notice. I searched through my email after I got home in case I missed it, but couldn't find anything. I would have appreciated a bit better communication."

Cons: "I didn't like that my first checked bag was $25. I thought it was no charge"

Pros: "I liked healthy food options. I really like the upgrade option to a more comfortable seat in the exit row and a complimentary cocktail as well. I like the organized boarding back to front. It is much faster."
Cons: "I did not use entertainment so I couldn't really rate it. There wasn't anything that I didn't like."

Pros: "The flight was smooth, I liked that the captains spoke to us and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "On other flights we get a whole can of soda, on this flight I got a out half as the flight attendant split the soda between myself and another passenger."

Pros: "Very courteous and pleasant"

Pros: "Easy boarding, polite people"
Cons: "I didn't get TSA pre applied--I associate this with buying the Alaska airlines ticket through Delta. They merged my first and middle name into a single long name that TSA didn't recognize."

Pros: "Courteous employees"

Pros: "On time and smooth travel"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of"

Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."

Pros: "The seat was super amazing"

Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"

Pros: "I was able to sleep the whole flight thanks to the eye mask and ear plugs. Keeping me informed about the delay."
Cons: "Nothing at this time."

Pros: "Boarding was done efficiently."
Cons: "The crew barely spoke, wasn’t particularly friendly, didn’t make many announcements even while we circled JFK for 25+ mins waiting to land. Attendants didn’t come around much at all. Spent the whole flight with the guy next to me’s arm way past the armrest, pinned to the window; very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Everyone was boarded early so we departed early. Quick flight with pleasant flight attendants and nice snacks."
Cons: "The desk agent in Boston could be a little more pleasant."

Cons: "The plane was too hot. When it is that full you could turn up the air."

Pros: "The inflight crew was absolutely incredible. They were funny and helpful especially as our situation was incredibly bad."
Cons: "After waiting almost an extra hour plus for a delay, the boarding process was complete chaos. Not to the fault of the crew at LaGuardia, but just based on the annoyance and impatience of the passengers waiting to board. Once on the plane, our row was the only one with broken TVs. Unfortunately for my husband and myself, we were flying with two toddlers with whom we had solely expected to entertain with the TV."

Pros: "Got there on time. Usually satisfy with Jetblue. There’s not much better out there."
Cons: "Indifference in the crew voice. Although i know my people can be tough to deal with at times but there was no reasons on this flight. But only reason im reporting this, is because i didn’t get my suitcase that was checked in"

Pros: "It was great service by JetBlue. Great staff and helped us with many things. Helped us change seat due to kids, luggage ect. Last minute."

Cons: "Delay boarding but not a big deal"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."

Cons: "The plane was REALLY old feeling. Tray tables wouldn’t stay up, my seat wouldn’t lock in the full upright position so on takeoff I got pushed forward by my seat back. The tiny TVs feel so outdated...like you’re on a plane from year 2000"

Pros: "The hot towel"
Cons: "Two attendants were not very friendly!"

Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"

Cons: "Unable to get boarding pass via kiosk. Understand not having staff before 8pm but had linger"

Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "JetBlue provides little sleeping mask and earplugs and I think that is a lovely touch for an overnight flight."
Cons: "Crew was a little cold, but since we are flying to Boston, I will assume they are just a little miffed by the weather conditions the Northeasterner storm brings on in their industry."

Cons: "Very impersonal staff! No hello when entering the airplane and a lukewarm goodbye, impatiently shoeing people off the plane."

Pros: "It was ok"

Pros: "The dunkin donuts coffee in a nice touch"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late — this was delayed 5 times, meaning I was unable to get to a morning meeting. No explanation was given. No advance warning given. Delays on the way to Phoenix as well. Terrible airline."

Pros: "The flight was normal. The crew was nice and the flight itself was painless."
Cons: "There were only two flights, one to my and one to Boston. My bag went to the wrong place and the way they handled it was disgusting. Making us run around the airport with no answers and nobody wanting to check the conveyer belt. Then they said if they found it they would let me know. They found the bag and they said by 6:30. Well, 6:30 passed and they had my bag but they couldn't tell me when it would be delivered and they use a third party company who they didn't have a contact number for or any answer as to when it would be delivered (I needed several things for work so it was a rush). Lastly, the lady I spoke to on the phone said it was my fault that I would not be there to receive the bag the following day as they did what they are supposed to. I was really surprised with how bad this customer service was as a whole. No communication and just nasty."

Cons: "Entertainment was out of service."

Pros: "The staff is friendlier than most airlines. More room than American."
Cons: "Screaming child entire flight. Not sure there is a solution. But, for a redeye, trying to get sleep before a days work, not great."

Cons: "No satellite TV en-route."

Pros: "What a difference from the cut rare airlines! We had been taking spirit in the past, but am so glad we used jet blue this time. We never got the feeling of just being cattle herded to a destination. Using a real airline is the only way to go!"

Pros: "New airplanes.On time schedule .Very professional a"

Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."

Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"

Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"

Cons: "Full flight and tiny seats surrounded by 2 300lb guys and they wouldn't let me switch my seat."

Pros: "I am on stand by after 24 hours. Because delta airlines was late.im stuck in LA"

Cons: "massive rips in the bag"

Pros: "Everything except food. I asked them for halal food when I bought tickets. But they didn't serve me halal food. Very very disappointed."
Cons: "Food and food."

Cons: "Poor WiFi. Paid extra to get it, but didnt sporadic at best."

Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"

Pros: "If you're willing to pay the upgrade, the entertainment system and ear buds should be in working order! Seats still uncomfortably narrow and audio system on plane should be audible!"

Cons: "Paid $28 for a Wi-Fi package that didn't work. No refund...."

Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"

Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."

Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."

Pros: "Smooth. Fast."

Pros: "very attentive service and remarkably tasty food in first class"
Cons: "seat was tight. not much legroom and very claustrophobic when the person in front of me reclined his seat."

Pros: "One of the male flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "No food was provided, there was a throw up stain on my first flight to Atlanta then on my connecting flight there was crumbs on my table, my boyfriends table did not want to close so that caused discomfort to the person in front of us. Boarding time took a very very long time"

Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."

Cons: "Check point had only one person working on a holiday weekend made for an extremely long wait"

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."

Cons: "Not telling us we would be arriving 30 min early and then getting in 30 min later than scheduled AND Having priority baggage actually be a priority"

Pros: "Everything is good"

Pros: "Nothing, my flight was delayed so bad that if I would have had taken off I would have been stuck in DFW Airport until probably Friday as I would have had missed my flight and all the flights to PR were sold out until the 19th. Luckily my brother was so proactive that he was able to re-schedule a flight for the 19th."
Cons: "If the flight would have taken off on time."

Cons: "No criticism"

Cons: "O Hare sucks. Flight always gets delayed."

Pros: "Mechanical difficulty and ineptitude -twice at repairs. Undisclosed landing complications due to runways issues in Phoenix resulting in missed connections."
Cons: "Reasonable arrangements were made for hotel, shuttle, and meal voucher, but the airport was virtually closed for the night and getting to ground transportation nearly impossible. Thank the airport cleaning service who were the most helpful"

Pros: "The positive attitude. The spirit of happy."

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"

Pros: "Friendly flight crew and pleasant to interact with."
Cons: "Had a significant delay due to wind conditions in Chicago. However, instead of waiting at the gate, we waited over 45 minutes on the plane instead of letting us know about this additional delay prior to boarding. Also, the legroom was laughable, as the person in front of me hit my knees as soon as he began reclining."

Pros: "First class seating comfort and service. Even my flight in the main cabin was relatively comfortable, but I'm a smaller stature person so... On time promise kept every flight."

Cons: "First flight TUS to DFW was delayed by 3 hours causeing us to mist all the remaining flights. Had to scramble to find other flights DFW to LHR and LHR to DUB. We arrived at our destination 10 hours. No reason for the delay was given. Lousey service on AA."

Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and sweet for an early morning flight."

Pros: "Good thing it was first thing in the morning."

Pros: "What isn't there to like about first class?"

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "Got me there"
Cons: "Bad knee hurt by end of flgt"

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Cons: "Preboarding wasent allowed. They forced me to check my bag in even though it was made for airplanes. Rude customer service. Flight was delayed."

Pros: "Coustumer Service"

Pros: "Apologies and attitude of crew They got me on another carrier so I could get to my destination"
Cons: "Not enough people on hand to reroute customers. Some picky customers took too much time. After an hour they handed out phone number to call and make our own arrangements"

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Pros: "It was wonderful plenty of space, legroom"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "Everything worked out just fine"

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "I was never able to take the flight because of a significant delay in arrival in Tucson and subsequent arrival in Chicago."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "Helpful employees"
Cons: "Being charged for internet access. Cramped seating."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Cons: "I had to go in and out of security 3 times to try to make alternate flight arrangements. The United staff was slow, unsympathetic and made several errors. I spent 7 hours in the airport due to errors."

Cons: "The plane was not prepared to travel; snacks and beverages were note available during our flight because someone forgot to stock the plane."

Cons: "Our flight arrived at LAX 20 minutes early so expected to get my connecting flight on time. Boy was I wrong, we sat inside the plane on the runway for over an hour. It was getting hot inside and people were getting upset about missing their connecting flights. We went around in circles on the runway, about 3 times. As people were getting agitated, so was the stewardess. Also people had to use the restroom, and the stewardess kept asking people to stay in there seats and she begin to lose her cool. What do you expect when your on the runway for over an hour. When people got to go, they got to go. So after finally arriving at the gate, "late" United did get me on another flight thru Alaska which was great. Will I fly United again, hmm I'm sure I will, One bad experience won't scratch them off my list, but I will choose other airlines first and United will be my last resort."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Staff is always friendly"
Cons: "We never boarded on time. Houston to Orlando was a nightmare."

Pros: "The cookies"
Cons: "Everything went alright, got to LAX in 1 hour. Felt nice."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."
