Pros: "Fly monthly with Alaska and never let me down."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was given an exit row seat since there were so many open seats and it reminded me of flying before 9/11. I’m 6’6” and pre9/11 I was always ushered to an exit iris seat. So it was extremely thoughtful of the check-in agent to do that for me."

Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized so left late"
Pros: "tablets were perfect for my seven year old."

Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice."
Pros: "the upside was that legroom was ok--i'm 6'2". plane did leave on time."
Cons: "1) not that alaska does any worse than others, but boarding is increasingly unpleasant. 5 grades of 'rewards' groups boards, then children, then military, then the elderly, etc. by the time people who paid full fair for their tickets board there's no overhead space left. by charging for any checked bags, the airlines are creating a very stressful and disorganized boarding experience; 2) the ambiance is just dull: cheesy music, dull, grey colors, poor lighting, etc. it just feels as if you're in a space designed by someone with no taste--and this is from the company that bought and killed virgin!? 3) the food is the same cheese plate and tapas plate i get on other airlines. 4) no special greeting upon boarding. it wouldn't take much to make the entire experience pleasant, but alaska and others don't feel the need to make the effort."
Pros: "tablets to keep kids busy, flight was on time"
Cons: "flights changed times, our original seats were lost and upgrades cost $80 per person"

Pros: "Accommodating to pets on board. Very helpful attendants and friendly staff overall. Always pleasant to call Alaska bc they are personable."
Cons: "I spoke with someone a month in advance and reserved seats, and booked a pet. The night before our flight I requested wheelchair assistance online. When we arrived they didn't have us down for assistance, didn't have record of the dog and had switched all our seats so we no longer were together or had an aisle. They rectified as best they could and were, again, very friendly. Just somehow miscommunication between the lines."
Pros: "We left early and arrived early! All in all another great Alaska flight!"
Pros: "Nice, friendly crew! Left 15 minutes mutes late and arrived 5 minutes to army! Perfect!"
Cons: "Wrapped glassware in checked in luggage. Glassware looked so broken as if someone jumped on the suitcase. Never saw crushed glass like that."
Pros: "all activities went very smooth. it was a little difficult to hear the boarding announcements but others than that no lines once boarded. I have long legs and there was plenty of room in my coach/window seat to move around."
Pros: "Great service, meals and selection of movies."
Cons: "Middle seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "I paid for first class and was pulled out of line and told was being moved not asked this happens so many times when I fly alone is embarrassing and not comfortable as I pay the same as them they should have done earlier. also first class wasn't much different as people were coming up non stop for bathroom not sure why.... not to be picky but is not like that on other"

Our flight was delayed an hour

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Communication with our delay...NOT TOO GOOD"
Cons: "No worries with Hawaiian Airlines’ staff and service … the “free meal” (sandwich) was unexpected, tasty and something not found on other domestic carriers."
Pros: "The entertainment would not work on my laptop"
Cons: "help for getting the entertainment to work"
Pros: "Hawaii"
Cons: "Food, leg room!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Flight was a little cold - but in Hawaii, not always a bad thing!"
Pros: "Airlines has great service and long leg room than the US carrier"
Cons: "The TSA line in Kona is a nightmare, almost missed my flight. Took over an hour. So slow and people dont make any effort doing their job faster."
Cons: "Incoming plane was late, but we made it to Kona in good time, and we were out of the airport and at our lodging 30 minutes before I thought we would be, so we must have been on time"
Pros: "The crew did the best with the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "This flight was extremely disorganized and Hawaiian Airlines did a terrible job of updating the situation to its guests. We had no idea our plane was 4 hours delayed because their websites never displayed that (said everything was on time). We only found out when we went to board and they informed"
Pros: "Crew ok"
Pros: "Quick flight from Maui to the Big Island"
Cons: "A bit more padding to the seats"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Entertainment set up is terrible, only available through app for purchase on tablet or smartphone. Cheap and antiquated. No vegetarian options for food."
Pros: "Food and drink were included, plane was very comfortable, and the service was friendly and professional... great experience."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Getting to our seats I was allowed to move one row up to an exit row which was great! Service by attendants was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Small"
Pros: "Boarding, check in and crew were ok."
Cons: "I knew, based on my flight to Hawaii, that there was no included entertainment - a big disappointment. I also knew their food would be mediocre. However, I had called the airline before our trip to request vegetarian meals. We were told that was taken care of. On the flight, we were told that the only meals on that flight were very mediocre chicken sandwiches. Thus, we had no meals."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is fantastic. Great crew, great service. Nice refreshing juice!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. It was fantastic."
Cons: "We ended up upgrading because kayak doesn’t let you assign a seat and we were the last to get a seat on a very full flight. I will never use Kayak again."
Cons: "Almost everything on the in flight entertainment system cost money and the screen was not very responsive."
Pros: "The gate crew was outstanding in a very difficult situation. They were all very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Scheduled departure was eleven a.m. and actual departure was over seven hours later. We were each provided a $100 credit memo for future travel, but when we tried to reschedule our return trip to avoid LAX we were told the credit could only be used for new travel. Not happy about either the delay or the inability to use the $100 each credits. On top of that, we had to pay $400 rescheduling fees for the two tickets. That looks like a threefer to me. Pretty much sucks."
Cons: "Not clear what line to stand in signs would help Such as if you had a boarding pass you can just stand in the line that will give your baggage tag versus just standing in the general line"
Cons: "Staff didn’t notify anyone of flight changes"
Pros: "Great intro to Hawaii for this first time visitor."
Pros: "crew was friendly and nice."
Cons: "plane is very outdated and for lack of a better word...junky."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "One hour delay boarding. One hour delay on the plane waiting for a light bulb change. 2 hours total before we were in the air. Not happy"
Pros: "Speedy and friendly service throughout. I did the self check-in and when the worker checked my ID she's told me I was military so I didn't need to pay the check-in baggage fee and refunded me. Awesome benefit to those that serve."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Variety of drinks"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours Not serving food and snacks until 2.5 hours after boarding even though it was already 4.5 hours after lunchtime and everyone was starving Flight attendants not responding to the service requests at all"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Plane showed up 2 1/2 hours late. Seats in terminal were very uncomfortable and staff had no clue what was going on. They had 3 flights trying to leave from same gate at same time. Plane seats were also very uncomfortable. Once plane was boarded and on way pilot came on and blamed the delay on maintenance issues and weather. Airline delay caused 2 hour delay getting our rental car. We didn't get to our lodging until midnight and should have been there by 7 pm."
Pros: "Overall I was happy. Would fly again."
Cons: "Advertisements annoyed me, especially after waking up. Turn them off plz."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, lights were dimmed for rest cause of early flight and comfortable environment."

Pros: "Hawaiian staff and crew are fun people to be around."
Cons: "Last minute gate change."
Pros: "Free guava juice and quick flight"
Pros: "crew was polite and nice."
Cons: "no wifi? Seriously?"
Pros: "The seating and the pleasant stewards."
Cons: "NA."
Pros: "They got us to our destination safely. Which , of course is the most important thing. Got us there on time as well. Did not use in flight entertainment so cannot rate."
Cons: "First class seats are miserably uncomfortable, barely wider than a coach seat. Only difference I Can tell is that it has more padding. Foot rest is unbelievably unfunctional. Food was good but no wine or refill of the other beverages was offered with the meal. Flight crew as polite, but wooden and unengaging. Baggage claim at destination was efficient. I only fly with this airline , and in first class, because I have sooooo many miles.. if that weren't the case I would try someone else. Who knows , maybe they would not be any better."
Pros: "All the services were excellent!"
Pros: "Friendly smiles of the crew. The app didn't work because it boarded late so my electronic boarding pass wouldn't work."
Cons: "Boarding was late, which resulted in my election boarding pass didn't work and the gate. It was my first time using the so so I was worried they wouldn't let me on the flight. The app also wouldn't let me select email boarding pass after I viewed the electronic one. The app also would start over every time my screen rotated or my screen locked. I had to re-enter all my information again."
Cons: "I know the food is free but it is terrible even for airline food both the dinner and the breakfast. No entertainment at all is available so poad up your tablet or laptop for these long flights."
Pros: "The fact they were at least able to change our flights twice."
Cons: "While we were in the Hawaiian Airlines Plumeria lounge, they should've let us know that we were about to miss our flight. Especially with taking care of an 8 month of baby, sometimes you lose track of time. We missed the original flight even though we had asked the front desk agent to contact the gate to hold it for us for a few minutes. When we arrived at the gate, the ramp had already been retracted so we missed our flight. Next flight was the next day so we had to rent another rental car, another night's hotel totaling an extra $200 in Waikiki. At least they changed my flight without fees. But overall a bad experience."
Pros: "Boarding was not announced per zone. Zone 1 and 2 were boarded and then 3-5 all at once creating a huge line. Rated 1 on food and entertainment as short duration of flight didn't include either of those."
Pros: "The crew, as on most of my Hawaiian flights were very pleasant and accommodating. The seating on their airlines are generally very comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "I had selected an aisle seat when I booked the flight and was moved to a center seat without my knowledge. When I made this known to the attendant, she left to check to see if they could move me, later returned to tell me that because I was already seated they couldn't move me, though I had made it known to her prior to taking my seat. Most Hawaiian flights have in flight movies and power ports, this particular flight had neither."
Pros: "Flight attendents could not get up for the flight due to weather."
Pros: "The attendant who picked me up in a wheelchair was very attentive and stayed with me until we got my bags."
Cons: "Having to pick up my bag in Honolulu in order to fly back to the mainland was a hassle, especially because I was being assisted in a wheelchair."
Cons: "I had to wait 3 hours for my interisland flight. That wasn't cool. But otherwise it was great"
Pros: "Ground crew was very helpful I give them a perfect 10 or a 5 ⭐️ Very accomodating and helpful."
Pros: "Love the cocktail... seriously awesome!"
Cons: "Where did the awesome meal go?!?!?"

Boarding process was disjointed and weird. Understaffed desk at gate and resulting overwhelm precluded any boarding announcements! Flight itself was fine, with good crew and adequate service. On time with no major delays.

Great staff nice planes.

Boarded late and then sat on plane for 45 minutes because of a clerical error...whatever that means. Then only one truck to deice plane, adding more time to our take off.

Pros: "Flight was good and crew were good. Nothing very outstanding but by no means a terrible flight."
Cons: "The in flight screens weren't working well."
Pros: "Everything was on time and ran smoothly. The seats have more room than most airlines. They were generous with drinks and snacks."
Pros: "The airplane seats and entertainment were 150% bettter than American"
Cons: "The check in area felt cramped, understaffed and like a 4th rate airline"

Cons: "Vegan Options for snacks"

Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew was very professional"

Cons: "Too hot, attendant did not know plane."
Pros: "They let me sleep."
Pros: "good job over all"
Pros: "Entertainment on the flight was fantastic."
Cons: "Delta really struggles with trying to get everyone in the plane in an orderly fashion. Window seats must climb over all of the aisle passengers that got on before."
Pros: "Incredible service, great entertainment options, comfy seats"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delta scheduled us a connection with only 35 min of layover. We had to go from Concourse E to A and the plane was several min late.We barely made it before the gate closed 10 min before pushback."
Pros: "New airplanes.On time schedule .Very professional a"
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"
Cons: "Full flight and tiny seats surrounded by 2 300lb guys and they wouldn't let me switch my seat."
Cons: "It was cold"
Pros: "got to the plane even though the ground crews had a lot of people to get bags checked for even down to 30 min to flight departure but still got their bags onto the plane"
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!"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Long wait in hot plane before take off."
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."
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."

Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "waited for us. We were late from Yuma"

Cons: "Overall a horrible experience. Would never choose American Airlines given other choices. This was the second time this year I was held at an airport over 24 hrs due to plane maintenance."
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "Staff was so kind and helpful."

Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Overall a very good flight"
Cons: "Awful, loud credit card sales pitch wine up children and another everyone in cabin for what seemed an eternity. Absolutely disgusting."

Pros: "Made it to destination"
Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane and the continued update on my flight delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but no fault of American."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late. No big deal. Once on, however, they made us deboard because they forgot to do a security check. Oops. Flight attendants made the experience much better -- funny, enthusiastic, hard-working."

Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "too tight to connection time in DFW"

Pros: "This was the same crew and pilot from the flight I took to LAX. His landing was so smooth, I woke up pleasantly upon landing!"
Pros: "The trip was on time and with no issues flying. I really enjoyed the ability to watch a movie...this was AWESOME!"
Cons: "Wow, the seating was VERY tight and I was happy for the TV screen in front of me to keep me busy. All the inflight interruptions on the movie I was watching."
Pros: "Planes were on time and staff was friendly"
Cons: "Nothing disliked"
Cons: "Flight was changed. Didn't get the seats I had already picked out. Woman on flight was very rude to me when I asked where the restroom was. NOT a good experience over all."
Cons: "Flight delayed going to and from my destination with no compensation. My bag I had to wait for it to come on the next flight and had to wait 2 hours for it."
Pros: "Standard flight , however I can't believe what most passengers bring on as cabin baggage !!"
Cons: "Evening meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable and considering that they co-share with Qantas , American could learn about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"
Pros: "Checkin was fast. Crew is always pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. I chose to upgrade my seat and was charged but i couldnt see any difference between my seat and anyone elses. I dont understand how it works. Then I was refunded the upgrade amount..."
Pros: "After missing my flight and zero empathy from AA employee who reassigned a new ticket - I was given 3 new times and an explanation that no pilots were there yet. Flight was short and painless -- but the scheduling was totally frustrating."
Pros: "I love the cookies"
Cons: "I wish my seat would recline more"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."
Pros: "Everything was nice and comfy"
Cons: "Nothing everything is perfect"
Pros: "Bathroom!!"
Cons: "There were no screens by each place!!"
Pros: "The lay over wasn't bad at all had enough time to make it to my gate and get something to eat"
Cons: "Was scheduled to leave at 3:15pm didn't leave until 4:17pm"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to weather, which I was fine with as I wanted to fly home in the safest conditions, and I do trust the captains decision. However, upon arrival, we were stuck on the runway for 3 hours!!!! Our flight landed at 1, we did not exit plane until 3:40. They were not curtious enough to give us accurate time frames on when we would be allowed off. They told us 40 minutes initially, obviously was a lie. We did not receive updates whatsoever. We had to stay seated the entire time with seat belts even though we were not moving!! I got up to use the restroom and was instructed to sit back down even though attendants were aware that we were not moving and were not getting off any time soon. A 2 hour flight turned into 5 hours on the plane instead so of course many passengers needed to use the restroom. Flight attendants offered no avail with extra attention, drinks, snacks or even by allowing fussy babies to be strolled down the aisle as the aircraft was completely still until the last 3-5 minutes when we FINALLY pulled to a terminal. We had to have a terminal when southwest would have gladly brought stairs to our flight so we could at least wait inside a less compact space, such as the airport, for luggage. I know of many people on our flight who missed connecting flights, which I'm sure AA did nothing to accommodate. By the end of it all, my family member who originally was going to pick us up from airport went home as he waited over 3 hours for me to get off the plane. I had to pay a taxi cab to bring me home and did not make it home until 6am when it was all said and done. To add insult to injury, the flight attendants did not even thank us for our patience or have the decency to address said issue. Never flying AA again."
Cons: "Terrible side to side of aeroport to get conetion fly with out time"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Seats comfortable for economy. Routine pretzel/cookie/peanuts and beverage. The crew picks up the garbage almost immediately after giving it me...huh? Then I'm left holding it the remainder of the flight when the come back through again. Now for the kicker....I had two flights the same day so I opted to buy the All Day Pass for $25.95!!! What? It was a 2 hour flight each way... Can't they prorate for flight duration or something??!! I ended up watching 1 movie "Superman vs Batman" that was 1 of 4 options of movies that come with the $25.95 package. Other movies available are an additional $5.99 to "rent". Wow...ruined."
Cons: "See the pro section it won't let me copy and paste into the con section."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "This is what every flight should be like."
Cons: "Pretzels was only free snack."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Not a smooth flight. Landing was questionable."
Pros: "Plane/seating comfort horrible. Too warm during the flight. WiFi/entertainment services didn't work properly. One soda and one bag of pretzels for a four and a half hour flight. One crew member was brash in her speaking with people. We used to use this airline regularly, and we stopped. Now I remember why."
Cons: "Plane was clean. Leg room was adequate for a 6 footer. Wafer cookie was good. Crew was nice."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but because of 5 flight delays we missed our connections in Amsterdam and got stuck in Houston for the night."
Cons: "The crew was friendly but because of 5 flight delays we missed our connection to Amsterdam and got stuck in Houston for the night. Because of this we were forced to pay for a hotel in Houston. I believe that we should have received some type of voucher for the huge inconvenience and waste of money"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, friendly crew, comfortable seating."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Cons: "Crew was really inattentive and service was poor to say the least. Very disappointing business class experience."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable in first class. Very happy with that experience for short haul flight. Enjoyed the service. Flight attendant checked on me multiple times and offered beverages."
Cons: "Snack/food choices."
Cons: "We got delayed due to maintenance, captain tells us to get off flight, then retracts, then tells us it will b longer than expected, so majority of people get off and he then comes to gate to tell us to get back on plane, majority of passengers had connections! I waited 2.5 hours to Rebook next day!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. The unusually chipper voices telling us “B-bye”"
Cons: "I remember reading that Aeroflot in Russia has better customer service than United Air Lines. Well, it was on full display today on our flight from LAX to Kona repleat with the veteran battle ax barking orders at passengers; “The Bathroom is by the blue curtaaaaaaiiiins!!!!!’ Poor victim seemed utterly humiliated. Seating is cramped, seats narrow and unsupportive and the old 757’s (c. 1997) entertainment system is ancient...the touch screens seemed unresponsive, but were in fact just slow...as 5-7 seconds would elapse between touching the screen and the command being implemented. A full re-boot was ordered about 30-45 minutes into the flight. As expected, there were some bumps in the air, but we welcommed them because it required the crew to sit down, freeing us of their ultra passive agressiveness."
Cons: "United has a 2 hour delay for mechanical issue. We almost missed our connection to Zurich. Our bags did not make it and we are still waiting for our luggage"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Timely departure"
Cons: "Annoying screaming 4 year old with his mom’s inability to control him. They sat in front of us. From Houston to Baton Rouge - attendant was too slow. Couldn’t get a cup of water to anyone except I am assume first class passengers. No notice. No apology. Disappointing!"
Pros: "The flight attendant refilled my ginger ale without me needing to ask. Smooth flight until we approached Denver. Always hit turbulence when landing in Denver."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude employees - never flying with United again."
Cons: "I didn’t not like being delayed an entire day because they had a problem with my wife’s name in the system"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment Good leg space Comfortable seats"
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: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Pros: "Good crew!! Entertainment screen not as good as SAS"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great!! The crew was great!"
Cons: "It was SO hot on plane, I was miserable the whole flight. It started out with a delay on the tarmac due to the air conditioning not working. We had to wait for maintenance to fix that. That wasn’t a big deal to me. We didn’t have a connecting flight to catch, so we were understanding....things happen. The problem for me began when HOT air was blowing on my legs the WHOLE flight. I was miserable! They only had pizza for purchase which did NOT sound appetizing in that heat. It was a terribly long flight and I was so happy to land and get off!!"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "I booked a basic economy seat & ended up on a small plane, that was fully booked. It had 2 seats on either side of the aisle but it was surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was short so thankfully I didn't have to pay for entertainment. It's a loser move to make the customers pay for everything; luggage, food & entertainment on my international flights, I always go for the companies that try to make the passengers comfortable and I'm going to think the same way on my local flights in the future"
Cons: "There was a delay in boarding then another delay in getting off the ground because of stand bys getting on and off. Turbulence was bad and there was no announcement for it. Just a long bad flight! Lots of crying kids and babies!!"
Pros: "Ease and Comfort. Each terminal in our two-leg journey was modern, immaculate and simple to navigate. The flight and crew were outstanding; attentive and professional. Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "We just couldn't justify paying 16.00 so each of us could watch TV for two hours. We would have appreciated basic TV, in order for us to stay on top of the National/World news. We feel it is part of our best interest, as a country and world, to keep informed. Please allow for at least BBC to be viewed. For Free. Thank You."
Pros: "Crew was mostly friendly"
Cons: "Leg room has vanished"
Pros: "Seats have some good cush to them"
Cons: "I specifically bought carry on luggage that meets the standards so that I would not have to go baggage claim as it would weigh heavily on my schedule. As I stood in line and noticed all of the huge "carry on" bags more than 2 I was astounded when the flight attendant said my carry on would have to be loaded with the other luggage. When I offered my rebuke she scolded me and said the luggage would be there before me....how the hell is that supposed to happen? To make matter worse the flight "attendants" stopped serving half way and when they started again I got trapped by the bathroom and did not get back to my seat in time to enjoy a beverage....not that I was offered one."
Pros: "I'm glad I didn't get kicked off!"
Cons: "I did not like the boarding process and I had a fear of being kicked off."
Pros: "The updates I received on my phone for delays and change of gates was faster than the agents would/could announce."
Cons: "When workers were walking the aisle, it was hard to get their attention."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Boarding on and off was good."
Cons: "The in flight wifi doesnt allow streaming. It was lame and there was no free in flight movies. So other than sleeping or using an app to text there was nothing you could do. In flight wifi isnt worth buying."
Pros: "The flight was average. Nothing stood out bout what I liked."
Cons: "I didn't like that my seat didn't recline. The temperature was very warm. Boarding took an exceptional amount of time and it was chaotic as we all stood in group lines for long periods of time."
Cons: "I decided to take another carrier in the aftermath of United's terrible treatment of paid passengers/customers. United doesn't deserve my business (ever again)."
Cons: "Last row - very large man that should have needed two seats !"
Pros: "Organized boarding"
Cons: "Economy is very cramped"
Cons: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Cons: "You had to pay for internet service in order to watch the free movies."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "My morning started by finding out my flight was delayed an hour and I was in an immediate panic that I would not make my connection. An hour turned to 1.5 and I was sure I would miss my best friend's wedding. The flight attendants were put in a horrible position - a flight full of delayed pasangers and they had nothing to do with it. The attendants and pilot were SO accomodating and empathetic and assured me they were in a good position to make up time. Between your staff and the free directTV and the fact that I made my flight with 5 minutes to spare....my trip was saved!"
Cons: "Could have lived without the 1.5 hour delay...but it happens."
Pros: "The stewards were awesome. Funny kind and attentive"
Pros: "Like other airlines, United is charging more fees for seats to food. And the food they sell is bad. The breakfast was microwaved to horification. Why are airlines permited to give such low levels of service? Why are they allowed to charge extra fees for ordinary seats? And no complimentary entertainment. All that NOTHING" service and for very high fees.I got suckered into paying a lot extra for premium Economy. The Premium was the extra money they stole. The Economy was the new definition of bare bones."
Cons: "There was nothing to like about the flight."
Pros: "Everything was easy and smooth I love it and they are very nice people"
Pros: "So much better than these cut rate airlines that low ball the price, but it's actually more when you add on bags and a soda."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Flight times were accurate."
Cons: "As soon as we arrived to the airport, checking in was the biggest hassle. We were harassed by a guy working the ticket counter named Guilermo. He was EXTREMELY rude and continued to harass us and followed us after we checked in and we're already at the security check point. It's $25 to check a bag but if you check 2 bags their website says its $35 for both. We were charged $50 to check two bags. Even after Guilermo told both of us that they wouldn't charge us for the second bag to be checked. The guy that checked our bags was also extremely rude and clearly didn't care. Once we started boarding the flight several passengers had to check their bags at the gate because there "wasn't enough room on the plane". Not really sure how this was fair since we had just paid $50 to check two bags and were lied to about it when several people just checked their bags for free. We chose to fly with United because of the good deals they have on flights but after our experience I would MUCH rather pay more money and have a lot better customer service. We had such a horrible experience it almost ruined our first day of our week long trip. I'm. It really sure if it's obvious to the employees of United but traveling for most people is a very special occasion. This occasion happen to be a very special one to us as it was a family vacation and seeing family we haven't seen in years. The poor attitudes and rude demeanor from the United staff is all we could think about even after we reached our destination."
Pros: "The friendly and comfortable atmosphere!"
Cons: "PHX is a large airport, and my emailed ticket said Brussles Airlines, Terminal 4. First off, Brussles Airlines is not a carrier at PHX, and secondly no one knew that United was their partner. There was no information provided to me to go to United, which was in Terminal 2. After making a phone call to Brussles Airlines, I ended up getting to the check in gate ten minutes after boarding started. It was a lovely rest of the trip after that though! But please include partner information im the email next time!"
Cons: "Super annoying toung boy who kicked my seat and slammed the tray table al ost the entire flight...obviously not United's fault."
Pros: "I got a super cheap fare for this short flight from PHX to LAX. Staff was courteous and the flight went smoothly from start to finish."
Cons: "Was unable to figure out the free entertainment offered. Was a short flight so I didn't really worry about it."
Pros: "The only positive was that the seat next to me was empty so I had a little more room."
Cons: "Flight attendants were unpleasant and plane was very dirty. My seat also felt sticky."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"
Pros: "Can't beat the ease of flying especially considering how quick arriving into Los Angeles verses driving"
Cons: "Delays due to presidential speeches"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the plane was new, and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Like others have said, the in-flight entertainment isn't free (even a few channels) so it is pretty useless."
