Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "She was cute, really acted like she liked her job! Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "I wanted a candy bar instead of the mai tai"
Pros: "Crew had great attitude"
Cons: "By the time I boarded I was unable to take my bag on as all overhead compartment space was gone. My bag was not prioritized, instead I had to wait FOREVER at SFO for the bag to arrive. There were over 6 flights assigned to the same baggage carousel. I think since we have to pay now for bags to be checked, I should have been compensated for NOT being able to take my bag onboard and for being forced to wait a very long time to retrieve it...exactly what I had hoped to avoid by carrying on."
Pros: "Loved how smooth it ran,such a professional crew,really made the time pleasant.i really wish all my flying times could be like this one,I would highly recommend this airline to all my friends,family and work partners,the crew was well verse in key Hawaiian words and very polite on departure."
Cons: "I think it would be to difficult to try and come up with anything,maybe I could say that the chicken was a little over cooked but that's it"
Pros: "worst flight ever on Alaska air. paid full fare first class and treated like a freeloader. hate to see their reputation go downhill. but like most airlines now, they are not interested in the premium customer. Ill go back to Delta..."
Pros: "Great food options..excellent service, even a free Mai Tai!"
Cons: "Seat sizes are small but not too bad. If a 1st class upgrade was available, I would've done it!"

Cons: "The first class seats were not very comfortable, have traveled on various competitors in first and these seat were the first to cause me shoulder and neck discomfort (note this is the first time that Ive traveled in first on AS) The lunch main meal meat were over done, my wife had the chicken and I the pork both were dry as a desert."
Pros: "Great crew. The Alaska entertainment setup is the best. Seats have a good pitch so you don't feel too cramped."
Cons: "Sat in the last row of the plane but someone has to."
Pros: "I can't say enough great things about this airline! This was my first time on Alaska and it definitely won't be my last. We had some weather issues come up as we were about to take off. The pilot kept us up today on info, the flight crew brought water & anything else people needed before take off. It was a short delay but you would have thought we were going to be there for hours because they were all so attentive. It was the smoothest flight (THERE WAS CRAZY WEATHER EVERYWHERE!!) but our pilots made sure we had the smoothest safest flight possible. I could go on forever! This airline went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure we were comfortable and had a great flight."
Cons: "I don't love paying to check luggage but these days unless you fly Southwest that's hard to avoid."
Cons: "Was not told about renting device when my iPad device woluld not work. I would have paid if someone told me that renting was an option. I was told sorry " you r old school". REALLY.......?????? I was ready to sign up for Alaska airlines credit card, sine my previous trips have been great. For such a long trip a little entertainment would have been nicw"
Pros: "Crew was nice, food was good although we had to buy it. Got one free drink because of delay."
Pros: "Great captain and crew"
Cons: "Need newer movie selections"
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "Food options just ok. Seats super small"
Pros: "Good, professional crew."
Cons: "They did not give me my food and drink for the flight. The wifi was also spotty, which was not great since customers pay extra for it."

Cons: "Cheap seats, food, everything we mediocre..."
Pros: "flight was good and on time"

Cons: "The noise level in the cabin was high. I'm glad that I have Bose noise-cancelling headphones."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew."
Pros: "Free wifi and charging stations for each seat! Bot of my flights, Alaska landed earlier than expected which was awesome. Compared to other family members who took another airline(which was delayed and cancelled) this was by far the best!"
Pros: "Flight attendants, mai tai."
Cons: "Late plane"
Pros: "It was a little confusing beacause your brochure said I would have free Wifi so I didn't rent your tablets. A half hour later I realized the wifi doesn't actually work, so I missed out on renting your tablets to watch something. I think there should be a less confusing system. This is more of an Alaska Airlines gripe though."
Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"
Pros: "Price of the ticket last minute one way from Boston to Anchorage for a family members surgery. Did a one way coming back even cheaper! Also missed connecting flight in Seattle and CS rep was kind enough to put me on a very booked flight 2 hours later. She waived the $200 change fee she could have charged. TY very much Brittany in Seattle!"
Cons: "Bring ur own snacks. Food is expensive like every other airline and not necessarily what one might feel like eating at that time."
Pros: "Good prices on snacks and food. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delays both routes There's nothing on website stating seatbelt extensions cannot be used in emergency seating area."
Pros: "leg room on premier seats. Entertainment had big variety and high quality."
Cons: "No food on 5 hour flight unless you pay"
Pros: "Flights were on time. friendly personnel."
Cons: "cramped seats, long boarding process, no entertainment, limited snacks."
Cons: ".My flight was cancelled in Boston and according to the gate agent it is their policy to not give an explanation. Travelers already tired and anxious about flying this only compounds the problem.They did get me a hotel room,but only issue meal vouchers one at a time. Alaska's ticketing and check in area is only manned for a short time and not on the weekend. Talk abourt a "Catch-22" I would rather have my money back than a flight voucher. I would only use Alaska if it was the only option."
Cons: "Two days before flight online seating chart showed no seats available that were together in main cabin so I bought "economy plus" seats. There were actually 32 empty seats in economy, many people had while rows to themselves. What a ripoff."
Pros: "The flight attendants made our flight very nice. They went out of their way to take care of us."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job! His landing was commendable given the high winds Portland was having!"
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "Loved the idea of the entertainment. Loved the food and drink options."
Cons: "Movie was interrupted every 10 mintutes by a buggy sign-in interface. Tray was dirty when I first put it down. Legroom was not sufficient."
Pros: "Great people with awesome service. Wish all air line was like Alaska."
Pros: "Flying to and from my destination wifi was awful. Not with the $40."
Pros: "Nice crew and yum cheese plate"
Cons: "Late boarding and late arrival."
Pros: "Best staff, rivals Hawaiian. Arrived 7 min early."
Pros: "Alaska does everything it can right, and does offer elites media players. The flight was in about 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Alaska reduced the size of first."
Cons: "That I can not smoke inside Secure inside of airport security almost missed my flight because I have to go to the street to smoke and then back though tsa"
Cons: "No window in the window seat! Just a blank panel. Severely disappointed."
Pros: "The overhead storage is nifty. The seats were comfortable and crew was friendly."
Cons: "This in flight wifi you pay for in lieu of free entertainment was a disappointment. I'm glad I brought my own stuff for my kids to do. You have to have your own device or you rent theirs, feels a little nickel and dimed. The cost of the food was high for what you get also."
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "Purchasing wifi, etc. was confusing."
Pros: "The airline is great. Food is good, service is great and they offer a $10 tablet with preloaded movies, some very recent, which is great."
Cons: "The gate they're in at Logan is terrible. There's really no fault to the airline here but if I had a choice I'd choose another airline specifically because there are no restaurants past security. It's terrible and there are no stores or even enough seats for a 737 load of passengers at a given gate. It's the worst experience I've had at Logan."
Pros: "Boarding was very easy and flight crew were attentive"
Pros: "Flight was good.Made up some of the delay time .Full size soda and decent sized bag of pretzels :) WiFi would be nice."
Cons: "Delayed an hour- no explanation"
Cons: "Communication with our delay...NOT TOO GOOD"
Pros: "I loved that they still have meal service, especially since the flight is soooooo long! The crew was very nice and attentive, and the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "However, the food was meh. Whatever the noodle mushroom thing was... The noodles were over-cooked but the meal itself was just barely warmed. The sandwich later on was great, though, so I guess it's hit or miss. We also couldn't hear the crew's announcements at all. The sound system needs an update."
Pros: "Was surprised to have frequent snacks, fresh water rounds to keep from being dehydrated, pleasant attitudes, enjoyable safety videos that had a sense of humor and kept you watching, great music during wait times, seats in coach that reclined quite comfortably, nice pillows and fleece blankets."
Pros: "The crew was great, we were fed a lot, and even given a hot towel! Really loved Hawaiian Airlines service!"
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 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 service was pretty good"
Cons: "Stuck at the gate after boarding for an entire hour while they did maintenance on the plane before we left."
Pros: "Food and drink were included, plane was very comfortable, and the service was friendly and professional... great experience."
Cons: "They lost one piece of luggage. Waiting to see if they find it and its returned"
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: "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: "I really didn’t like the Hawaii check in process. I purchased the ticket through kayak , JAL to Honolulu.Of course I went to JAL counter to check in, but the service lady told me I have to go to Hawaiian airlines. Cause the flight was share by JAL through Hawaiian. What a mess!"
Cons: "Almost everything on the in flight entertainment system cost money and the screen was not very responsive."
Pros: "The service and food and drinks"
Cons: "How dirty the plane was and especially the restrooms"
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"
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "No leg room with Silver (raft or?) under seat."
Pros: "Seats were more comfortable than those on the long flight from LAX to OGG."
Cons: "Checked bag didn’t make the connection."
Cons: "Overcrowded and too noisy"
Cons: "Very unclear about where/when to board in Kona"
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: "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"
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours because of a maintenance issue The planee was a old one and normal sized carry ons wouldent fit"
Cons: "Not much value for first class"
Pros: "Overall I was happy. Would fly again."
Cons: "Advertisements annoyed me, especially after waking up. Turn them off plz."
Pros: "At airport they pulled my husband aside for random screening making us last to board jet."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable. Movie selection mediocre"
Pros: "Hawaiian staff and crew are fun people to be around."
Cons: "Last minute gate change."
Pros: "Free guava juice and quick flight"
Pros: "Easy upgrade to extra space!"
Cons: "Temperature was too warm in the cabin"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable but it was a short flight"
Pros: "The seating and the pleasant stewards."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was very smooth"
Cons: "Last raw no window For window seat"
Pros: "Easy service. Great people."
Pros: "Crew was the best part of the trip! They were courteous, friendly, efficient & helpful! Always with a smile!"
Cons: "Food was mediocre but it was FREE! The last of the airlines to offer that! Hooray for them!"
Pros: "Enjoyed staff"
Cons: "No free entertainment available on a 5.5 hr flight. Touch display for movies didn't work very well."
Pros: "The plane was held a few minutes to give us time for a quick transfer since we were late arriving. Even our luggage made it onto the plane with us. The whole Hawaiian staff and crew were so helpful getting us to our connecting flight in time. We were even offered a yummy Rum Punch drink on our flight. Hawaiian flight attendants all the friendliest and most helpful of any airline I've experienced!"
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: "Efficient friendly on time service."
Pros: "Same excellent service as previous flight."
Pros: "Moved up our flight."
Pros: "The short flight and quick service"
Cons: "The flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "this is the airline"
Pros: "You know what you are getting with Delta"
Cons: "The economy seats were really tiny, this made the flight fairly uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The plane was very quiet (except for noisy crying babies)."
Cons: "Unless you can afford the higher priced "comfort class" or first class seats, the seating is very, very cramped on Delta's 757s. It's a good thing the flight was only 5+ hours (but that's not long enough to get any decent amount of sleep on this flight scheduled as a redeye)."
Cons: "Better allergy aware food."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We reserved exit row seats and when they changed the plane they gave our exit row seats to others."
Cons: "The crew members were very rude and they called me an IDIOT!! Yes they did because the forced me to check my carry on bag and i didnt want they are racists"
Pros: "I was in Comfort+ so there was a bit more leg room than standard economy"
Cons: "Even with Comfort+ things are tight."
Pros: "room and services"
Cons: "can't think of anything"
Pros: "We left early"
Cons: "they let someone get off the plane and it delayed the flight an hour and a half which caused me to miss my connecting flight. I now have to sit for a 5 hour layover"
Pros: "wonderfu crew... very helpul`"
Pros: "The selection of movies was great."
Cons: "The food. No herbal or decaf tea. No decaf coffee. The regular coffee and regular tea was awful; I like strong coffee and tea but on the plane it was terrible. The was not a vegan option for dinner. I thought the pilot announced complimentary beverages; soft drinks, coffee, tea & alcohol. Perhaps I was mistaken or maybe he was. I like the seats (reclining back with the seat bottom moving forward) except the seat bottom is entirely too hard and was bad for my back. The hot towels are a welcome touch. The ride was smooth, the pilots did a very good job."
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Cons: "Food was terrible, for first class they need to up the standards"
Pros: "Super nice flight attendant. Really made all of us (business travelers, retired military folks, family with little kids heading to a wedding) feel welcomed and happy. Great experience."
Pros: "Everything except the time of arrival."
Cons: "It was SO late; like 3 hours late."
Pros: "Great service throughout. Friendly attendants and easy boarding/deboarding processes. Would fly international with them again in a heart beat."
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Pros: "The flight was ontime, boarding was okay. Disembarking seemed a little slow."
Cons: "Seats have gotten narrower and closer together and it was a new plane which seemed to have more slope to the wall which meant even less room in the window seat. Too warm in the plane"
Pros: "We didn’t order food and there was no online entertainment"
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."
Pros: "The overall flight was good."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "Great crew and passengers"
Pros: "Entertainment offered, USB charging options."
Cons: "Too much food offered."
Pros: "Within Europe KLM short flights are very good. They give you a snack and something to drink without charge."
Cons: "Seats,are a little tight but like most other airlines."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "It was a really good flight minor turbulence towards the end. Flight was on time, smooth flight. NO tvs on this one."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine. TVs on every plane would be nice."
Cons: "The process of checking was very poor. One line was serving all of the Delta flights. Agents were very slow. Even when they started to serve my flight with priority still no impruvment. The agent who served me was so lost that he could not find the page with my picture and name in my passport!!!"
Pros: "It doesn't matter how good all of the above were when one of our bags did not make the connection in Atlanta and when it was delivered late at night to my home and it has been torn beyond repair"
Cons: "Bag did not make the connection and it was damaged beyond repair"
Pros: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
Pros: "The speediness if the crew to get the flight boarded and in the air, entire process form boarding to unboarding was about an hour."
Cons: "Plane was loud and very stuffy, but the flight being so shore made it managable, overall good flight."
Pros: "Overall flight was nice, but almost miss my flight!"
Cons: "Almost miss my flight due to Delta being short staffed at the ticket counter in the early am. Had a small issue to validate my passport in the automated cheek-in botths and waited over an hour to get them to personally validate. terrible experience. There were several of us with the same problem. I chose Delta given their prestige for great customer service, but they definitely need to do something about some of the folks at Logan's terminal."
Pros: "Skyprority was great along with the perks of PE seats. Crew, as usual, were professional, pleasant, and organized."
Cons: "IFE was great but remove the games component from the menu. I had a child poking the screen playing the game for 3 hours and everytime they poked the screen it moved my head as if she was just hitting the back of the steat. PE seats really don't offer that much more room and the seat on the 757-200 vs 9 was AWFUL! My tailbone hurts 24 his later."
Cons: "Old plane Zero entertainment First class seats worn thin and uncomfortable. I've been flying AA quite a bit lately and thought I'd give Delta another try. Too bad, it's clearly not up to today's standards"
Cons: "Seats don't have wings to rest your head on. The distance to the seat in front of me was of course way too small making it nearly impossible to use my computer."
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "The entertainment units were terrible. Touch screens effectively impossible to operate in this 737-800."
Cons: "I left my wallet on this flight. It was extremely frustrating that I was unable to speak to a live person to find out if the wallet had been recovered. I filled out the form online and now have to wait 2 to 3 weeks!"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and easy. For the first time on any airline, the crew was over-the-top friendly and my special meal request was excellent."
Pros: "It's what I didn't like....as a Sky Miles member I should get a free bag. Small aircraft for a FL trip."
Pros: "I liked nothing, because the flight was 4hrs late and had 20 on standby."
Cons: "4hrs late, 20 on standby, missed connection, had to travel a day later and spent 14hrs in the airport."
Cons: "I'm just glad that we got to the airport 2 1/2 hours early because we needed it. We had to check a dog so we had to go through the special needs line, they had 2 out of 20 of ticket lines open. My wife also needs a wheelchair and after 45 minutes of standing in line, I spoke to one of the idiots that are supposed to be there to help and he went and got a wheelchair which I had to push my wife in the wheelchair through the zig zag line with 2 large suit cases and a dog. It took us an hour and a half to get tickets and then they called for someone to push the wheelchair and we where told to wait for them there. We waited for 10 minutes for someone to come but no one came so I started pushing her towards the Sercurity check line and finally someone came to push her and he stayed on his phone the entire time. When my wife got to the point where she needed to walk through the metal detector she was having a little trouble getting out of the chair so they told her to just stay in the chair and they would push her through in the wheelchair. When she got through, they almost strip searched her and patted her down like she was a criminal. That took another 25 minutes!!! They the guy pushed her to our gate and insisted on taking the chair back with him, so 5 minutes later they asked if it was anyone who needed assistance getting on the plane. I went up and told them that my wife needed a chair to get on the plane so they had to call and get another chair which took another 10 minutes and finally we got on the plane. It took us 2 hours and 15 minutes to get a ticket and go through Sercurity!!!! Very very very unprofessional!!!"
Cons: "Free streaming movies on WiFi did not work (the system was broken on this aircraft according to the customer support). We had 3 people flying together but did not get the seats assigned in one place. Yes, we did not pay extra for confirmed seats but since we were buying 3 tickets I think 3 seats close to each other (if not in one row) should be expected."
Pros: "A very pleasant experience, nice crew."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything at all"
Cons: "They have to add electronic devices or charge plug on it"
Cons: "They canceled the flight"
Pros: "Crew on board are great."
Cons: "American keeps canceling and changing schedules. They cancelled flight section and took it out of my itinerary. Then took over 3 calls and 2 hours on hold to fix."
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Cons: "The flight from Boston was extremely delayed,but miraculasly, the boarding to conecting FinnAir flight 6, took extra 10 minutes, which gave me a chance not to catch it. Though, me and the AA rep., had to cross-run about a mile up and down the escalators at terminal 8 , my baggage was left behind and did not make a transfer to FinnAir 6. At final destination I was asked to file a lost baggage claim. If not the initial flight from Logan, everything should go smoother."
Pros: "Bos to Rome via jfk. Both flights easy in all ways. Grrat first class seat one first flight and quite good bus class on second. New Flagship Lounge a real plus."
Pros: "Ease of boarding with the group numbers"
Pros: "Best landing I’ve experienced recently!"
Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "No hassle of changing terminals in JFK, no bagagge claim, AA check-in-this time, was a "good luck"....Connection in Helsinki, very quik!"
Cons: "Finnair flight AY06 are old aircrafts. Every other in-seat monitor was out of order, flight attendants could not do much. That created mess for passengers, trying to move their seats to the ones with working monitors....."
Pros: "Professionalism and all time smile of the crew"
Cons: "That there is not TV in the plane"
Cons: "The plane was dirty, the window had a leak, the TV was too far away and the sound system to watch the movie was broken. When the plane is in that poor of a condition, it's time to replace it. F."
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Good service from crew members"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours"
Cons: "This is our honeymoon! Every single blessed thing you sent said British Airways, but it was really American. Ended up at wrong terminal. Staff uncaring, plane cramped, seat reservation not honored. The worst. You will be getting a letter on your deceptive practices and I am going to bury you on social media. Kevin Howard"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the crew was so friendly!"
Cons: "It was an older plane and it felt a bit cramped."
Cons: "No tv's for such a long flight. One tv on the ceiling every so often does not qualify for entertainment.. flight was delayed for 3 hours. Never American Airlines again"
Cons: "No wifi or any video"
Cons: "I was supposed to be there right now, but I'm still waiting in Chicago for my connecting flight to Dayton that was delayed."
Cons: "Jetway should not be backed up all the way to the counter. Stop calling so many groups for boarding without knowing that no one is actually getting onboard. Force subsequent groups to step aside until called."
Cons: "I purchased extra legroom but got less - front row.Between two very large elderly gentlemen. No overhead storage either. Miserable and long flight."
Pros: "personal entertainment systems and charging plugs"
Cons: "only pretzels and no headphones offered for the entertainment systems."
Pros: "All good - with every aspect of the trip."
Cons: "4 hours of no air conditioning in a middle seat..."
Pros: "Good crew, very pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The three and a half hour delay was not great, but since it was due to weather issues in Chicago, certainly not the airlines fault. However, the communication about the delay was terrible. There was nobody and the gate, so we were relying on automated notifications from the airline. They kept pushing it later by 30 - 45 minutes at a time. We could have gone to the airport much later but just didn't know that."
Pros: "Loved the people, very friendly and accommodating. I sat in first class and felt very comfortable."
Cons: "I think needing your own device for entertainment is awful then having to pay rental fees, even if you're in first class."
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Pros: "The plane was not full"
Cons: "Booked Brittish Air, got American. Plane delayed, no wifi, TV screen could not be seen from seat. No control of TV. Plane seats old & uncomfortable. Paid a premium price for a sub par experience."
Pros: "Plane wasn't full"
Cons: "We booked on British Air, but got American Airlines. Something I didn't realize. I don't like Amercan Airlines! No internet, no tv. Only overhead tv too far away to see from my seat and no choices Old plane"
Pros: "No turbulence Efficient"
Pros: "The crew was very professional"
Cons: "That is a long flight and the seats could not recline at all. I also would have like a few more choices available from the menu. Asked for a blanket and was told that there are none on the flight."
Cons: "When I called AA on July 13 because there are no seats left for me to reserve for my ticketed flight home on July 22, they blamed it on you, Kayak, for not having me reserve them when I bought the tickets (tix purchased May 10 for a July 15/July 22 return flight). What is your process for ensuring your customers have reserved seats? I had booked seats for one leg of my flight at time of purchase but not any other legs ... doesn't make sense to me why I would not have done all at the same time unless I couldn't because it was too early? Please advise. BTW - I still don't have guaranteed seats for my flight from Phoenix to Boston on July 22. Any help you can provide is appreciated."
Cons: "the crew was terrible they seemed angry and were rude to people on the flight, very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I made it to NY somehow"
Cons: "Everything. I have 2 roller bags I carry on to every flight I have ever taken and they charged me $25 per bag to check because it was a "snug" fit into their dimension box. Also gave no snacks and only half can refreshments, no entertainment."
Pros: "The great atendance and on time bording"
Cons: "There is no More options of free food included with the ticket fly"
Pros: "Smooth flight & landing. Stewardess was very nice."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. And I'm only 5"2", but could barely lean forward to reach carryon under seat--used my feet instead."
Pros: "The best part about my flight was the plane got me from point A to point B."
Cons: "This was my first time flying American in years and now I remember why. Very cramped flight with no leg room, my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me.. Because they charge for checking bags, everybody else had two carry ons and there was no room for my one single back pack in the overhead bin so I was forced to sit with it under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Bathroom facilities not working during part of the flight."
Pros: "Got there in one piece"
Cons: "Left late. Ran out of food before all were served. Cabin staff were weary and more attentive to each other than the passengers. With us packed in like sardines,American maintains it's reputation as the Greyhound of the air. Next time Jet Blue."
Pros: "Friendly staff at the gate, also the crew as goodl"
Cons: "Don't need 2.5 hours delay to start my vacation. We finally checked in at our hotel at 01:00am....."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather and AA was very unhelpful finding accommodations, even finding our luggage."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Hardly any food options, don't accept cash for food or drinks, over all uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Good electronic pass. Quick and easy. Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The delay in boarding trying to switch people around!! No food except to high price purchase."
Pros: "had onboard in seat entertainment. Mostly TV shows but not bad."
Cons: "Center seat, group 3 boarding, poor seat spacing in coach."
Cons: "The flight landed about 30 minutes early. We spent one hour on the tarmac waiting for a gate, resulting in us being late .. compromising many with tight connections."
Pros: "30 minutes early in Dallas,"
Cons: "Cabin where I sat was way too warm"
Cons: "Changed equipment and my aisle seat went to middle seat with no advance notice"
Cons: "Everything about it was terrible. So late we nearly missed a legal AA contection. No USB or WIFI as promised. Rude staff."
Pros: "The extra legroom for economy plus seats"
Cons: "The food was tiny and not good"
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "The seating area is very tight and the aisles were extremely narrow."
Pros: "I booked business, so not too bad."
Cons: "I don't know why United doesn't take the 8 hr flight to Honolulu as serious as they do international flights. The business class was like being in Priorty seats with food and reclining. I was in the middle seat of 4 seats. still a crowed feeling. I would not waste my money on business on that flight"
Cons: "Serving something substantial to eat would be nice."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Salmon and rice."
Cons: "Tvs not working and staff pretending as if they would fix it but actually the problem been going for a while with that airplane. The pizza should not only be a vegetarian one ."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Only a couple delays."
Cons: "The ease of travel."
Cons: "I tryed to call and send messages to chande the date of flight, but I didn't get any answers from agent. ANA Japan said they cannot handle the changing flight. So I haven't got a return ticket rescheduled. Please advice me how to get new ticket back to Hawaii date of 9/12 or 13 ASAP."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Full flight, we got on smoothly and took off on time. The plane was clean and the pilots during abbouncekents were easy to understand and funny."
Cons: "I had to wait over 1.5 hours to use the bathroom because of the food and drink carts. The flight attendant would not let me use first clsss and told me I had to wait. That was way to long to make someone wait."
Pros: "I had the distinct pleasure of flying in an aisle seat in the back of the plane with an empty middle seat. I quickly and effectively commandeered the middle screen (for flight information) and underseat storage to provide extra leg room in front of me. The flight attendants on my side of the plane were all friendly and wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment lacked a little... entertainment. There was a simingly limited selection of films and those available were mostly, to be frank, terrible. The food, not terrible, was simply par for an airline. There was also a rather heated discussion between a flight attendant and a passenger on the opposite side of the plane from me."
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Pros: "Typical intercontinental flight in coach. Plenty of movies to watch, bin space and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I have a severe food allergy and despite requesting and confirming my special meal multiple times I was only offered a banana for the entire trip."
Cons: "Honestly, I am not a big fan of United right now and their airline policies. The flight was delayed for a hour. But at least I wasn't dragged off the plane or stuck in 95 degree weather for 5 hours."
Pros: "The food being offer was good"
Cons: "The experience as a whole was rather disappointing"
Cons: "Our plane departed on time, 6:05 AM. About 6:40 A E turned back towards Boston. There was a problem with the wing. It got repaired. We deplaned. And waited. And waited. Then we needed fuel to be removed. And we waited. And waited. Then we got back on board, got to the runway, and the RIGHT ENGINE didn't start. So they tried to repair it, couldn't (didn't want to fly on that old, broken plane anyway at this point), and we had our flight canceled. All told, I spent 10+ hours at Logan Airport. It was an absolute disaster."
Cons: "they have the worst customer service."
Cons: "Our flight home we couldn't land in Chicago due to storms and diverted to Madison. Sat on Tarmac 2 hours and some passengers from Madison allowed to end journey there. We had to wait for that approval and again had to wait for their luggage to be removed from the plane. My opinion is let them disembark but not the luggage. It was too long to be in that plane"
Pros: "It was a comfy plane ride."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, professional & kind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues so I only had 40 min layover to get to my next gate. Also when we arrived we were on the ground for a long time before we could pull up to gate to unload. I have a 3 yr old & 5 yr old & had to run to make it. We made it but luggage didn't. My first luggage was delivered quickly, the 2nd luggage arrived 3 days after we arrived home."
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Cons: "Unreliable wifi."
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess with an adjacent gate exiting at the time of boarding creating a melee of people crossing queues. You have a carry-on baggage policy - stick to it. I wasn't carrying any roll-ons or large items but many of my fellow passengers were carrying multiple items in the hope of either getting them on or having them checked for free. Complete shambles with later boarders running up and down the aisle trying to fit their carry-ons into overhead lockers. Solution: Enforce one item only; Apply free checked items at the gate early. Apply a fee for items that don't fit and were not offered up for checking."
Pros: "Boarding was consistent and timely"
Cons: "Older, worn interior, especially if seats are pushed back"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Bathrooms weren't working, huge lines in aisle, lackluster service. Overhead bins were full by Group 3. late takeoff."
Pros: "Did get last seat in business class!"
Cons: "The seat assigned online not valid because of change of equipment. Did result in upgrade to business. Very happy outcome."
Pros: "Broading was seamless"
Pros: "Very satisfied."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Plane aisle was a tight squeeze with carry on bag plus seats were very close together, and I'm a small person at 5'1". Otherwise flight was good."
Pros: "Instead of a 4 hour layover in Denver, I was easily able to get on an earlier flight to slc thank you to such a wonderful front desk agent. Even the crew members on board were so pleasant you could tell they truly enjoy their job and want to make for an enjoyable flight. Thank you United!! Will be flying with you again!!"
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "I couldn't believe that this long flight had NOTHING in the form of entertainment. No wifi to watch on your own device and no inflight entertainment. I was stuck in the middle of 2 people with a baby with nothing to pass the hours. Unbelievable!!!"
Pros: "Old plane, no plugs, no in flight movie, didn't even offer complimentary snacks. Had to pay $10 for a snack box on a 6 hr flight. Completety unacceptable that on such a long trip, they offered no complimentary food, no movie, and although they offered "entertainment" on personal devices, you needed to download the united app to watch on your personal device. But wait, NO PLUGS??. So basically your phone / ipad battery will die 1/2 way through the flight and then you will have no way to use your phone after you arrive at your destination. Way to go united. Your corp execs should be ashamed for making you the worst airline with the highest prices."
Cons: "United has stripped away every element of customer service. We had to tag our own checked luggage. They were unable to even try to seat me together with my toddler child who was seated alone. (Age 3). We scanned our own boarding passes to board. As I boarded with bags and 2 children, 4 flight attendants stood watching and said "make sure you don't hit anyone with your purse as you walk down the aisle". No one offered the slightest help. The flight attendant would not take my trash because she said a diaper had to be disposed of in the restroom. (We were not allowed to stand bc of turbulence.) When I played white noise to soothe my crying lap child, the flight attendant told me I would have to use headphones (which is impossible on an infant.) I won't fly United again."
Cons: "all the televisions were going on and off, on and off, doing this thing that said "searching" and they would go black, and then turn on again in a sequence that I can only describe as a blinking Christmas light pattern all over the plane. It gave me a huge migraine, and the woman next to me covered here TV with a scarf that barely blocked out the light in her face. It was extremely distracting and I couldn't even nap."
Pros: "Flight from hell!! Delayed originally for one hour, then two hours air traffic control issues, then delayed three more hours due to engine trouble because of poor quality maintenance on the aircraft. Flight crew just went through the motions like automatons. What little food choices were available were terrible. Absolutely no leg room on flight. Should have used a bigger plane for a non stop transcontinental flight. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again!!!!"
Pros: "The service was much more friendly and polite than the last time I flew united."
Cons: "Cramped seating very high food prices. Electric phone sockets didn't work AGAIN even though the green light was on. Couldn't charge my phone at all..."
Pros: "I liked it was steady and smooth for the most part. Good service and entertainment."
Cons: "On the way back, last 20 minutes made me feel nauseous and the return flight also didn't have T.V."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over one hour. I had to ask to flight attendant to ask the pilot if they could wave the TV/movie entertainment fees due to the delay with the flight, which was approved. I did not like the fact that I had to ask about that when that offer should had been automatic. In the past, when flying and a delay happens, other airlines like Hawaiian and Delta have waved their entertainment fees. The baggage claim took over 45 minutes to release the flights luggage."
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "4 hours in line to get my tickets changed 6 hours on hold to talk to a rep No available flights for 4 days when canceled due to weather Very disorganized staff in Boston no one knew where to go"
Cons: "Crew member that was boarding us promised my bag was on the plane but, it wasn't so it got lost."
Pros: "Arrived early. Friendly crews. :)"
Pros: "On board entertainment did not work but otherwise a good flight."
Cons: "I'm used to quality service from JetBlue and Virgin America, so this was awful. Nothing was free--not even peanuts! I got a tiny cup of coca-cola for free and that was about it. The staff was curt and not very friendly, the flight was long and uncomfortable, and there was absolutely no on-board entertainment. For a $300 flight that normally costs $150 with other airlines, I don't know what I'm paying for."
Pros: "4 hours delay???? Are you serious? Compensate my time and all I lost"
Cons: "No food during long flights"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Received a window seat. No one was sitting in the middle, so it was an extremely comfortable flight."
Cons: "No wifi available."
Pros: "Initial flight was awesome and on time."
