Cabin was freezing

Pros: "The stuff was great, the flight was nice and smooth."
Pros: "Ease of travel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great crew on the flight. Good entertainment options and food."
Pros: "The staff at both airports were amazing. (SNA/SFO) From ease of arrival at check in by Alaska Airlines staff to the airport security at SFO providing assistance to help me guide my ride to pick me up the best description of where I was to ease pick up. That’s not to mention the Alaska staff that allowed me to move my flight up to accommodate my schedule or the excellent staff at the gate and on the plane. Very nice experience!"
Pros: "Service was great!"
Cons: "We were over an hour late to depart due to “Cosmetic” issues. Then we landed in Detroit to find out our landing gear might have an issue. Airport firefighter were standing by. We landed safely and crew was amazing."
Cons: "Took off an hour late"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and they were all really polite and helpful!"
Cons: "My headphone jack was broken so I couldn't listen to all the great movies they were offering. It's a little thing that changes the whole experience."
Cons: "The staff was exceptionally kind and understanding"
Pros: "Boarding was strange - it was still in groups although we were shuttled to our airplane. I was glad it wasn’t a packed flight as I wasn’t smushed by my neighbors in the seats. Very little turbulence, smooth taking off and landing. I like that I was able to watch free movies without having to pay for WiFi."
Cons: "The shuttle broke down on the way to the airplane and had to wait for another. The good part was that we didn’t wait very long (less than 10 minutes) for another to arrive. No free WiFi."
Pros: "How they saw my needs comfort me. She even came from around the desk to hung me. I am so thankful for all who assisted in this time of need . They are great."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines was efficient & friendly, former Virgin Airlines plane."
Pros: "early and smooth"
Pros: "Alaska staff person was able to rebook us on a 6:00 flight. (However, this meant a frantic rush to another terminal.)"
Cons: "Flight was canceled at the last minute, when we were already at the airport at 5:30 a.m. for a 7:00 flight. We had a connecting flight to Tokyo so this was very upsetting."
Pros: "Timeless"
Cons: "I am small and there was very little room. I probably won’t fly Alaskan again."
Pros: "The assistance by the San Jose CR Alaska office re; my misplaced carry on and their super help in the return exchange of backpacks"
Cons: "Meal on board charges"
Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful and the flight was on time. Very comfy accomodations."
Pros: "everything was great!"
Cons: "We have a service dog onboard, and the flight attendant was brusque when giving instructions about how he can fly, which came off as rude. All of her instructions were unnecessarily snappy, but that’s the one that struck me most. He’s a service dog. He’s allowed to be here. Seats are too hard/rigid, and I wasn’t able to get much sleep due to discomfort/screaming babies. I don’t blame the babies though."
Pros: "It was a night flight, so it was pretty quiet."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Couldn't sleep."
Pros: "Since they bought Virgin they have free entertainment and you can order food from menu. Good crew and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Don't like that they are changing carry on sizes"
Pros: "I sat in a premium seat at the window. First good sleep on a flight I’ve had"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We loved that the boarding was so easy because we had assigned seats. Everything went smoothly and we were able to leave earlier than planned because we were ready. That was nice. The pilot was great."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude, arrogant, and didn’t do their job well. They stayed in the back texting the entire flight instead of attending to people and when someone asked for water they acted like it was a man joe nuisance. It was very off-putting."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Straight through flights to and from Portland were such a bonus. The price was reasonable, especially during the holidays. I like that Alaska does not charge you for every little thing. They seem to still value the customer and want to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t have any complaints for this flight."
Pros: "Fan of the in flight complementary drinks, very friendly flight attendants (Rudy was fantastic) and plenty of space!"
Cons: "I didn't like hating to pay 7 dollars a shot for alcohol, nor wad I a fan of being charged 15 dollars for internet aaccess that was supposed to only cost ten, and was shotty the entire flight."

Cons: "Flight attendants not very personable."
Pros: "It was my first time using Alaska, this trip. I liked your airline overall! Clean."
Cons: "On my flight home to Detroit I was seated in the back. The flight attendants did nothing but gossip about other flight attendants (good and bad), their home life,etc. One rammed me with the cart & their body, woke me up, didn't even apologize. Just felt it was rude. I pay for my flight. I was trying to rest on my 4 hour flight before I had to tend to daughter who had cancer, I need the rest. And for what I paid, I should be able to. Not listen to Alaska's drama within."
Cons: "Economy is always cramped, not just an Alaska comment. My computer almost got destroyed because the guy in front leaned his seat back"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "seat cushion"
Pros: "the crew was awesome"
Cons: "Though we had first class tickets and flying out of USA to Mexico we were denied the first class lounge!! We used our mileage companion fare and that is why we were denied We felt we were penalized for being members of your mileage program"
Pros: "Everyone"
Pros: "The plane was late in arriving and we were hard pressed to make our connecting flight. A stewardess made an announcement requesting everyone without a connecting flight remain seated until those of us with tight schedules got off. Most everyone was courteous and waited. Thus we, and many others, were able to make our connecting flight. We really appreciated the assistance."
Pros: "Everything went smooth and easy."
Pros: "Crew was so awesome keeping us hydrated the whole time! Early flight arrival, and it was such a smooth trip. Comfortable seats, and not what I was expecting from an "off" airline"
Cons: "It was quite hot sitting next to the window."
Pros: "Nothing in this area"
Cons: "Smallllllllll seats that I ly reclined one inch. No leg room"
Pros: "Great crew, Great service. Prompt flight."
Cons: "No individualized entertainment screen."
Pros: "They gave us free snacks while we were sleeping, was on time, friendly crew."
Cons: "The plane was super filthy on both legs of our trip. The area between the seats looked like it had NEVER been cleaned since the plane was built."
Pros: "Crew & flight were good to go. We were like 15-20 mins early. I haven't been on an Alaska flight that's been late yet!"
Cons: "I don't have anything bad to say!"
Pros: "Crew was humourous and friendly"
Cons: "Boarding area was very congested with several other flights leaving within minutes of our flight."
Pros: "I love Alaska airline. I always try to fly with them."
Pros: "The flight arrived early. The crew are pleasant and helpful. I've always liked Alaska and their NW partners ... not at all like the experiences that have been in social media of late."
Cons: ""If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." The airline would never be our destination, but Alaska is a very good way to get there."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional staff. Free access to movies was really nice as well."
Pros: "Crew was friendly during flight and regularly moved through the cabin."
Cons: "Impersonal during boarding. Check in counter to get boarding pass was unfriendly."
Cons: "All legs of my trip from San Jose to Seattle to Philadelphia and back were all delayed; so much so that on the trip to Philadelphia, I had to be rebooked on Delta; and on the trip back to Seattle, I almost missed my flight due to a 50 minute delay on the runway waiting. I found out that "officially", the plane was "on time" because the plane closed the doors on time. Also, same thing from Seattle to San Jose, we were delayed 30 minutes due to a tire that needed replacement. Again, "officially" we were on time, because the doors had closed and we were just sitting inside the plane."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival! And love the ability to connect to wifi on board."
Pros: "Renting personal tablets for in flight movies is a good idea. Attentive staff."
Cons: "Flight boarded an hour late, stalled on the tarmac for another half hour."
Cons: "2 hours late no updates... poor"
Pros: "Relaxed, professional attitude."
Cons: "The flight was late by nearly three hours. Disrupted plans significantly and added to expenses."
Pros: "Scheduling, Boarding crew were all good."
Cons: "sitting for 5 hrs squished in like sardines was not fun. there was plenty of leg room, but shoulder room was minimal and uncomfortable for that duration of flight"

Broken tvs, unhelpful staff, confusing communication preventing smooth travel experience.

There was an enormous line at LAX trying to check in and check bags. Fortunately the staff were accommodating and allowed us to check our bags even after the deadline had passed -- but it was definitely an extremely stressful experience!

Soooooo packed

Me and my son are first time travelers! And we had a AWESOME flight!

Cons: "Flight was delayed causing the connection impossible. Delta provides no way to communicate directly with a human making rebooking impossible. The lack of care destroyed our family reunion."
Cons: "More snack options"
Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"
Cons: "Not make me check my carry on when there was adequate room in plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the flight attendants Keddie deserves praise for bringing me snacks even after the main serving was over when I was sleeping."
Cons: "Boarding at JAC was done by walking to plane. Signage for the correct plane was absent, and some passengers were erroneously trying to board the wrong aircraft."
Pros: "Trip was ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "The screens, quality, travel, attendants"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Out of everyone’s control Mother Nature"
Pros: "Seating is better than most other airlines. In seat entertainment option, bring headphones. Accommodating crew. Beverage and snacks provided at no cost."
Pros: "Great crew! Very friendly!"
Pros: "It was great, friendly staff"
Pros: "Middle seats were not booked. Cabin appeared very clean. Bathrooms were kept tidy. Very friendly staff. Appreciated cold drinks and the snacks."
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late to board and depart."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Boarding announcements were hardly audible. We chose comfort seats for extra payment but that still did not turn out to be comfort class. Seat classes are confusing. No temperature was taken before boarding."
Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."
Cons: "Love delta. Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked the fact I was put into a quality seat after I had booked a normal economy seat. Nice upgrade. I got lots of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a maintenance issue. We made up some of the time, but it was an issue."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "This COVID to be over"
Pros: "One flight attendant was adamant about a passenger across from me, covering his nose AND mouth during the flight and constantly checked to make sure he was following the rules."
Cons: "The safety instructions portion of the flight was not thorough. They just held up the large card and stood there. No true demonstration which was important to me as I was sitting in the emergency exit row."
Pros: "As expected of Delta. With Covid, even the food service understandably was limited. They had prepackaged goodies, albeit not much flexibility, but I had no complaints. Mid row was empty per Covid, for flight comfort, this was somewhat a plus. Knowing air was filtered with HEPA filters every 2 minutes with fresh oxygen and outside air mix was also reassuring."
Pros: "Great crew and friendly"
Pros: "Crew great....moved passengers around near us for Covid related separation."
Cons: "Cramped.....too many seats in too small of a plane....I'm 6ft / 190 lbs"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive. I appreciated the extra spacing between passengers."
Cons: "I would have liked to see alcohol served."
Pros: "Empty middle seat; disinfectant wipes. I know these measures were implemented because of COVID but I wouldn’t mind having these last past the pandemic!"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Pros: "The plane was very new everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing considering the situation"
Cons: "The food service on the 3 hour leg but we knew that ahead of time so..."
Cons: "We arrived around 39 minutes early and the whole process was very smooth"
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options are great. Relatively comfortable seats by today's standards."
Cons: "Literally any of our flights could have been on time. None were."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and I got extra Biscoff Cookies"
Cons: "Great trip"
Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Coffee or beverage service would have been a nice touch."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
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: "I paid only $100 more round trip to DTW from SLC then I would have with other carriers, minus the hassle of connecting flights and paying fees that they don't tell you about up front (like $25 for a carry-on bag, oh and a another $12 per leg for a window seat). My experience, like my previous Delta experiences was absolutely enjoyable. From the quick boarding, super friendly gate agents, and flight crew, to the free on board entertainment, Delta has won me over once again. Oh and did I mention how great it is to board a flight, relax and watch a good movie, take a small nap, and deplane at your destination! Awesome!!"
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."

About an hour late, sat on runway waiting for fuel long time. Then there was no ground crew to get us in the air, had to wait on them.

Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "We ask for help with a 80 year old woman that needed assistance signed up for help o get her from one terminal to her next carnet flight no one accepted her."
Cons: "Only saw what was supposed to have happened but didn’t no help from the air line period."
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "it was great!"
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours because they had No crew to operate the flight! Such poor customer service on Americans part as well. No answers and rude agents when you tried to ask any questions"
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude. First of all she doesn’t know how to enter India OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) information. She was keep saying I do not have a visa to go to India. Which I do not"
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late to leave and American did nothing to try and remedy the situation. Unacceptable that we are this late. I missed my meetings and they won’t offer any kind of voucher for future travel. But yet we have to pay for change fees!?!? I will absolutely avoid flying American."
Pros: "Yes."
Cons: "I tried to mark all EXCELLENT, but I couldn't get the circle to color in the circle excellent."
Pros: "Service and flight was excellent"
Cons: "They were great"
Pros: "Flight was smooth...take off to landing"
Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Maybe had a flight crew on time and a plane that wasn’t 30 years old"
Cons: "Flight delayed 24 hrs"
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Cons: "Flight was 45 mins late. No drinks or snacks. Small plane. Forced to valet checkin carryon luggage :/"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."
Pros: "On-time, 20 minutes early!"
Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Cons: "Flight to and from AL on American Airlines were both canceled - I was switched to Delta on the ‘to’ trip and stuck in AL another night on ‘home’ trip"
Cons: "Getting baggage took an hour"

Cons: "There was nothing not to like!"

Cons: "No entertainment with this flight. Cookies good."
Pros: "The flight was a quick 39 minutes from Chicago, the staff was friendly. Good flight."
Cons: "It's snowing!"
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Cons: "A few issues: 1) I was not given seat tgth with my 9 year old and was not helped in finding seats together 2) they lost my bag after I took it through customs and I'm still (a week already) waiting for it."
Pros: "Everyone was nice, and accommodating. It was our 3 and 5yr olds first flight. Thank you very much American Airlines!!"
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Cons: "The big delay (almost 4 hours) makes me loose my trip to Canada on the same day."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for two hours!"
Pros: "Clean environment of the terminals and the speed of the shuttle."
Cons: "no comment."
Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."
Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"
Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
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: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"
Pros: "The flight qmwent without issue once we took iff"
Cons: "There was maintenance needed on the plane before we could take off and that delayed us further from take off."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
Pros: "Economy seating for such a small plane was great."
Cons: "This flight- one of the crew (female) had a miserable attitude. Like we were an inconvenience."
Cons: "Flight could’ve been on time."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early!"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "The airbus seats were far more comfortable than the 737-800 seats that we had on the orevious outgoing flight. It shows comfort is possible when the airline selects the right equipment."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Travelled with my 3 children they had a blast with the comfort and entertainment , next to the amazing professional staff!"
Cons: "THey would have loved the additional choices for food items...."
Pros: "Just outstanding handling of any upcoming issue, comforting travelers, helping lost moms not knowing what to do with their unbehaving sceaming kids. Helping rude business travelers to get more alcohol without charging them, and many challenges along that line, just handled amazingly!"
Cons: "just the food items available, would be so nice to have a few more options for purchase!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
Pros: "The United staff and flight were great, no complaints. We arrived a few minutes too late for my partner to check in with his luggage so they even arranged it so that he would be able to still catch the flight but the luggage would be sent on the following flight. Definitely saved us from the stress of having to be split up and worried on when there would be room for him to catch an alternate flight."
Cons: "My complaints are with Newark airport (EWR). The AirTran took over 10-15min to arrive and when it finally did we had to get off and wait for another one which didn’t have space for everyone so a group of us had to wait even longer for the next one to arrive. A guy said he missed his flight last time that happened. They had more trains going to the parking lot for customers leaving the airport than they did for people catching their flights! Then there was only one security check in line, even for expedited check in. Despite allocating extra time for our overall commute, we still made it right on time for boarding so make sure to give yourself PLENTY of time when dealing with EWR."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Pros: "The best part of this flight was getting off the plane and vowing never to fly United again. They, in this experience were no better at doing their job - getting people from one place to another on time with a little comfort and dignity - than the cut rate guys. Miserable 13 hour trip for what should've been 4 hours in the air."
Cons: "13 hours of travel time for what should've been 4 hours on two planes. The first was staffed by a miserable crew who seemed bothered by the notion of having to deal with passengers. The second was staffed by a crew who couldn't see the passengers scrounging for anything to cover up with to keep warm. Both crews lacked any sense of pride and professionalism. Add delays to that and you have a sum total of a miserable trip home."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"
Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was attentive"
Cons: "The flight left an hour late. When arrived in Detroit the ground crew left our bags on the plane. It took over another hour to figure out what happened. The attendant was not on duty."
Pros: "Nothing really everyhing was mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed baggage, smelly flight, food"
Pros: "There were five flights out of our gate and we couldn't hear who was supposed to board because three people would be cross talking at the same time. All united flights."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They booted me from my first flight, and the rebooking. Finally left on the 10 PM flight and then there was a mix up with my check in bag. No one knew whether it was on an earlier flight or on my flight. United Airlines is full of incompetent employees. Never flying with them again."
Pros: "Boarded quickly, seats had more leg room than I expected."
Cons: "United's check in process for economy fares requires in person check in (you can't check in online) so checking in at Newark was a bit of a hassle."
Pros: "Timely boarding and excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Pros: "seats are comfortable"
Cons: "1)Very cold cabin atmosphere. 2)Very noisy passengers wish the attendants can announce saying "since its a late night flight we request our passengers to keep their voices low" Some people just don't have common sense"
Pros: "The staff was great!!!"
Cons: "The food needs improvement."
Cons: "I'm still here never got out"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Pros: "Staff very friendly as always."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Paid for Wi-Fi and it cut out halfway through the flight and was extremely slow so I wasn't able to get much work done. Not worth the purchase."
Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Cons: "This was a tiny cramped plane and didnt have much comfort."
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline, no free movies/TV."
Cons: "Very long delay"
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Cons: "Didn't make it"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The whole services!"
Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."
Pros: "Quick, comfortable, smooth, and pleasant"
Pros: "We experienced a lot of turbulence during the flight but the pilot handled the situation extremely well."
Cons: "The turbulence"
Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours without any real explanation of why. They ended up moving us to a new gate at the last minute."
Pros: "On timing"
Pros: "Fast boarding, close gate"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "The personal were mostly very freindly"
Cons: "My carry-on had to go through the scanner a few times and finally had to be checked. The check person was calling out "who's bag" and I did not hear her. She scolded me for not listening."
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
Cons: "Didn't even get to fly they canceled all my flights with no resolutions"
Pros: "The space between seat was better than the long haul United light from Houston to Tokyo. The piloting was smooth for take off and landing. The flight was on time."
