Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seat was so comfortable! Aircraft was clean, crew was friendly"
Pros: "Flight was okay. More expensive than other airlines, but the only available flight I could get to align with my vacation time."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the plane. They ran out of their signature meal before even getting to our row...and they still had over half the plane to go."
Cons: "On board entertainment"
Pros: "I was in coach , they are always a little uncomfortable"
Cons: "Cheaper flight"
Pros: "Seats looked new and clean. Flight came in early."
Cons: "The front desk gate associates stated that it was a full flight and there would be ZERO spots left for carry on luggage for me in the overhead bins.

Pros: "Relaxed, comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane small - had to bend to get in door- am only 5’6”! Seats too small - too close. Definitely not a pleasant ride. Left late and still had to wait to get a gate. Felt bad for people with connections! I would pay more for an airline that offered comfort and made flying a pleasant experience- this wasn’t it."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "No bottles of water for sale and not enough water to drink, and one bathroom broken without possibility or offer of using first class bathroom to cut down the line"
Cons: "Bathrooms were not maintained during duration of flight. With airlines like Delta and JetBlue stepping up their in-flight service Alaska needs to get with the program. I think everyone and their mothers we're in boarding group C but yet no one was in A...make it more dispersed."
Cons: "No food, just snacks."
Pros: "The flight went exactly as anticipated. 30 minute departure delay due to airport construction, but arrived almost on time."

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

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"
Cons: "When I went for boarding pass the people were sort of nasty, but at the end she completely changed her attitude and ended extremely pleasant."

Pros: "Arrived to San Francisco before the expected arrival time,"

Cons: "The flight was delayed at least an hour leaving billings due to not having a gate in Seattle. Would like to see a higher quality snack. Organic nuts? Instead of cheesezits. I won't eat that junk."
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"

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: "Complimentary Wine"
Cons: "It wad late"
Pros: "Leaving on time, arriving on time. Being a MVP."

Pros: "Smooth, clean, on time, ease of all!"
Pros: "Service with a smile!"
Cons: "If I HAD to list something, it would be the overcrowded flight"

Cons: "The sound system is VERY loud to the point of being piercing. I was on four of your planes and this was consistent."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."

Pros: "Crew was great very clean and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Food was very inapropriate for the hr"
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect flight."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled - we were moved to an Alaska Air flight. That is why all of the NAs. What was good is that the moved us to another flight in a timely manner. Also, the gate attendant kept everyone informed of what was happening."
Pros: "There were 12 delays. No help and I slept overnight in the airport. Worst experience I will never fly delta again"
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."

Pros: "Crew were very pleasant and seemed to enjoy working"
Pros: "I got home alive."
Cons: "The crew was surly. The flight was delayed. We received little information about the delays."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and seemed genuinely nice. The seats felt a little narrow"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "If you could figure out how to get online wifi..."
Cons: "Delayed flight, b.s. about why we were late, kept changing the reasonfor being late, unfriendly service"
Pros: "I have never seen a gate attendant call each person by name as she scanned their boarding passes! At Delta I felt welcomed by every employee. Even the pilots greeted the passengers as they exited. All the other airlines just want my money, they want to cram me into smaller and smaller spaces and want me to sit there and shut up so they don't have to interact with me. I will fly Delta every chance I get, even if I have to pay more money."
Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"

Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could"

Cons: "Small delay waiting for the walkway arm at the gate otherwise we’d have been early"
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."
Pros: "Smooth flight on new B757 with good entertainment system and Comfort+ seating legroom worth the extra cost but I was disappointed that the overhead storage bins above our seats were filled by pax from other seats before we arrived even though we were given priority boarding and the toilets were filthy."
Cons: "Boarding passengers should be more carefully controlled with amount and size of cabin luggage and where they place them. Toilets should be more frequently cleaned in flight."
Pros: "Everything was great."
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."
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??"
Pros: "The snack variety"
Cons: "My headphone jack was broken :("
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Wasn't anything to not like other than the passengers that try to rush off plane the moment it arrives at the gate."

Cons: "requirement to wait for seat assignment until at the gate"
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not anything"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Had the seat at the very back, which made engine sounds loud for most of the trip"
Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, I didn't eat anything but the snacks are fine. I don't think there is any "entertainment" unless you pay for it but that's okay."
Cons: "Three hours late leaving Paris. Missed our connecting flight to saint louis. Not much help from Delta."
Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."
Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."
Cons: "Wifi was too slow to stream (audio only) a live sporting event. No satellite tv for the entire flight with no announcement - I had to ask the crew twice what was up."
Pros: "Everything was average but the crew"
Cons: "I found them rude and not helpful regarding my connecting flight"
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Many options"
Cons: "When we arrived for check in we were told we did not have seats assigned, even though I had picked seats previously. At the gate we were told the flight was very full so we would not be able to sit together."
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."
Pros: "The crew chief"
Cons: "Water not to top; towel holder broken. 20 minutes for wheel chair to arrive"
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: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."
Cons: "after reaching the destination, it took a lot to open the airplane's doors and letting people out"
Pros: "The two native born Senegalese boys, aged about 8 or 9 were delightful, energetic, generally well behaved."
Cons: "They understood my poor French but I couldn't understand most of theirs. They needed a great deal of help with eating the adult meals they were served and using the entertainment system. At first the flight attendants did little if anything to help. Later after I pointed out the problems we were having they were better. Such young ones needed better supervision and meals easier to eat than they received. I needed less stress on the long 8 hour flight. This was not quite a Sky Priority Comfort Plus experience for me."
Cons: "more organized boarding"
Pros: "Timely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats are really small"
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Pros: "Seats are too narrow We paid extra to sit in the exit row so leg room was good Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats too narrow...would like to see wider seats to be included when you pay a premium for leg room"
Pros: "Nice comfortable plane"
Cons: "Takes to long to get off the ground but that really can’t be avoided... still left and arrived at destination on time"

Cons: "More seat room side to side"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The seat was tiny. It took forever. I hate you people."

Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, comfortable and staff was terrific."
Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"
Cons: "AA flight into Miami delayed due to late arrival of aircraft, followed by significant delay on the tarmac waiting for another plane to leave. This then delayed getting bags that required rechecking. At the AA booth, even though I was 42 minutes before the flight, they would not let me check my bags (not 45 minutes before) requiring me to stay in Miami overnight before booking me on a standby flight the next day. Customer service representatives were unhelpful and supervisor was rude. As someone who travels a lot, this was the worst service I have ever received from an airline (which says quite a bit). Will rethink ever booking a trip on American again."
Pros: "The seat I chose was good. Was first row behind business class. Lots of leg room. But the seats were a little uncomfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment is really bad on touchscreen. We live in a world where everyone uses phones and tablets and these screens do not work well with touch. Really bad experience there."
Pros: "Early arrival, plane not crowded"
Cons: "Onboard wifi not working so no inflight entertainment"
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful, professional and friendly"
Cons: "Old plane, not in good shape; seat pocket broken, are rest controller did’t fit into arm rest properly, panel in bathroom held in place (kind of) with duct tape, no individual screen for movies."
Pros: "Went smoothly as it should."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't function well but that could have been more an airbus issue."
Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"
Pros: "Great fight ! The ground crew in Miami were so helpful"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Pros: "I hope I never fly American again!!! We were supposed to leave at 2.pm, but dud not until 11 pm. The AA customer service staff wanted to charge me $ for my carry on! We missed our connection of course! Had to wait 2 hrs at next airport for a hotel. Did receive food vouchers and luggage was checked in right away (good thing). But overall ridiculous! Missed an entire day due to AA not having another plain? Or not finding another way to put passengers in other flights."
Cons: "Customer treatment and lack of interest on custmer satisfaction. The Denver staff was changed so often they had no clue about customers needs and it was all about making the bucks for the airline."
Cons: "The fact that one could not book either an aisle or a window without paying significant sums is ridiculous - an additional $74 for a window seat and some were considerably more than that."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Cabin was cold and no blankets available."
Pros: "No water no food nothing good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and the ride was very smooth, I felt at home."
Cons: "We received no snacks coming back home to Jamaica but we give thanks for you guys informing us."
Cons: "Customer service unwilling to change flight during hurricane."
Cons: "AA wants to charge $75 to change tickets to take an earlier flight. Plenty of seats available on the earlier flight, while standby passengers not able to get onto the later flight. I lost 4 hours, AA lost revenue, standby passengers stuck in Philly. Also, no air conditioning on this flight."
Cons: "The flight being delayed & then cancelled at the last second"
Pros: "Flight was not full so i got two seats to myself. Movie selections was great, and crew was great ."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Our flight to Nashville AND our flight back to Dallas were both delayed due to "maintenance". Each time was a delay of a couple of hours causing us to miss both of our original layover flights. As a result, we missed TWO very important business meetings that ended up costing us over $10,000! We were unable to provide paychecks to employees! After spending 2 entire days sitting in the airport waiting, we were offered a "food voucher" for $30, were advised to go pick up our luggage first, but they failed to mention we would be unable to get back through DFW airport security just to eat!! We had to take a taxi back to our hotel for over $100 and they didn't offer help with that or anything else. This airline is the worst!!! Unless there is significant compensation offered, I will do anything and everything to destroy their reputation further. I'm in the marketing industry and am very capable of getting the word out to millions. American Airlines... 9/11...Never Forget."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and the food was decent."
Cons: "Boarded us onto a plane with a broken engine, deboarded the plane and delayed the flight 4 hours. Then we sat on the tarmac for an hour after landing because they didn't inform the airport that we were in a new, larger plane."
Cons: "4 hora de retraso ni una cortesía empleados bien carnepuercos"
Pros: "The flight was delayed. I did make my connection"
Cons: "Crew was less than stellar; no IFE"
Cons: "Nothing all was good"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Good and not much leg room"
Pros: "Nothing of note."
Cons: "Staff should know which plane is which when directing passengers. Flight crew shouldn't be making jokes about people not on the plane, when THE AIRLINES delayed flight caused passengers to miss their connection. Every United flight seems to be delayed anymore."
Pros: "The flight was relatively short and uneventful."
Cons: "The workers at the airport, airline door, and flight attendants were all very rude. After sitting in LAX traffic for over 2 hours, they could’ve at least attempted to be friendly and helpful. I swore I’d never fly United again, and this solidified my opinion."
Pros: "Fast and works really well."
Cons: "On board snacks could be better."
Pros: "We like to have our carry-on available under the seat so I thought I was planning ahead by getting the second row. Turns out the front row puts their carry-on under their seat and the second row gets screwed. All my extra leg room was lost with my bag taking up the space because it could not fit under the seat. They shouldn't charge extra money for that seat and I felt cheated."
Cons: "No space for carry-on under seat in second row for upgraded leg room seat."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system not working."
Cons: "As stated above, we never made it to Liberia (where we had family waiting for us). We had to fly first to Panama and then to San Jose and figure out a new rental car situation, as we already had one booked in Liberia."
Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."
Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."
Pros: "Crew was great, and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "For the price, there should be better food, and a bit more breathing room."
Cons: "I missed it due to weather difficulties, there was nothing in compensation."
Pros: "Great, friendly service! At a wonderful price in my time of need for a flight the next day!"
Cons: "I love that they now have movies to play on ur phone but I two flights and you couldn’t finish you movie due to each plane offering different movies... a little bummed but not awful."
Cons: "We never made this flight. United texted us multiple new gates confusing us. We stood at customer service for almost 3 hours never able to talk to an agent. Had to go to a desk to figure it out. It was still messed up in Dallas. Two in my party almost didn't make it to Cancun this day."
Pros: "The crew from the ticket agents all the way up were great. The app for iPhone is great."
Cons: "I paid for 30 minutes of WiFi to download the United app on my iPad. I wanted to watch the movies/tv shows that were available to passengers. The WiFi was spotty and slow so I wasn’t able to load the app. Needless to say I was disappointed. I also was disappointed with the seating. I am an average size person and I felt very cramped in my seat. My shoulders and neck are killing me after a 2 hour flight. I know that I chose the economy seating but I don’t remember the seats being quite so narrow or the leg room being non existent."
Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was cancelled and I was in first class. I was rebooked on delta in coach and united would not book me for first class."
Pros: "Clean waiting area; enough room overhead for my carryon bag."
Cons: "Couldn't get internet based entertainment on my iPhone as advertised"
Pros: "Good experience with United. I don't usually fly with this airline wi I was kinda hesitant, but it was ok."

Pros: "It was a nice comfortable jet and service was OK"
Pros: "Crew was nice, did their best to help."

Cons: "Although our tickets were purchased together, my husband and I were not seated together. And the flight was very crowded. I think it's a little unprofessional for a company to overbook a flight and then bribe passengers with money to wait for another flight."

Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "No delays, no maintenance problems, no overbooked flights, no seat changes required. Efficient, effective"
Pros: "Being switched to a different, better airline after the flight was delayed by over 3 hours"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours, missed my connecting flight, spent the night sleeping on the hard tile floor of the airport, got kicked out of airport at 1am due to the air port closing, had the then spend the rest of the early morning on the baggage claim floor until terminal opens. YOU SUCK"
Cons: "No space, outdated non-working air, extremely hot and stuffy, VERY dry air, no screens"
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Poor timeliness of our return flight from IAH to ABA"
Pros: "Space adequate in coach."
Cons: "Crying baby all flight, but who can help that. Main complaint-overheated cabin."

Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth flight. Everything was on time."
Cons: "Not particularly nice staff at gate. No entertainment options."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Nice amenities. Quick on and off"
Cons: "That I would have had to pay for Wifi or to watch tv"
Pros: "Flying in America gave me no problems. Things only got terrible after we left Denver."
Pros: "Had a stroller, two bags, and a car seat and the check in staff helped us tag everything and loaded it for us. It was nice to see the Billings staff go above and beyond in my families time of need."
Pros: "We had economy plus seats, so I could still feel my legs and didn't have a near panic occurrence. Good news! The dents in my husband's knees from the previous flight are gone! A/C worked great."
Cons: "United flight attendants could use a good Dale Carnegie course. The attendants on our flight exuded "GO AWAY!" Our row mate (aisle) had a broken seat that she paid extra $$ for & she asked to be seated elsewhere. Attendant said there are no more seats. There was at least one seat in first-class; we could see it. She also asked for more pretzels......2 1/2 hours into the flight...the attendant said I gave them out already. One pack of pretzels? I wasn't offered any pretzels at all. And the movie choices....what?!?!?!?! I can't even begin to describe the disappointment that your "selection" of movies caused. This isn't a hop to Hawaii. It's long haul. Oh. And my feelings are still a little hurt I at being subjected to the SMELL of baking chocolate chip cookies that were being served in 1st class. Really? Superman vs Batman, Captain America, Barbershop II, Jungle Book, etc., AND having to smell cookies I can't have? It's just too much to take in on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "I didn't freeze! It left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Didn't get one of those little snack bags with the drinks."
Cons: "They overbooked my flight and almost didn't let me on the plane even though I bought my ticket months ago! The only reason I got on is because some people didn't show up."
Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."
Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Nice plane with leg room"
Cons: "The guy at the boarding counter in Billings was really rude! Maybe he just had a bad day but a zero in customer service, in my opinion."
Pros: "Professional service and on time departure"
Cons: "You guys robbed me"
