Pros: "Got here early"
Pros: "The crew. Customer service."
Cons: "Snacks other than the cookie they always offer."
Cons: "Temperature on ground and in air...stuffy and warm"
Pros: "The crew member did a good helping me"
Cons: "If Alaska didn’t overbook my flight then bump me off"
Cons: "We got awful seats and sat nowhere close to each other"
Pros: "The Crew was amazing & super friendly. They have a 20 minute bag guarantee so you get your checked luggage super fast."
Cons: "On one my flights I had to sit in an isle seat & people kept bumping me while I was trying to sleep but that's really out of anybody's control so I can't fault the airline for it!"
Pros: "Seats had decent leg space."
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault 100% but getting a bag checked in Honolulu was a nightmare. Kiosks didn’t turn on until 9:30a and no desk assistance until shortly thereafter then immediately overwhelmed by issues with the kiosks. Needed my full 4hrs transfer, everything took a very long time."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and very polite. I like that one carry on was included in my ticket. Enough leg room. Love the free in flight movies! Glad I didn’t have to purchase a beverage either."
Cons: "I will never understand the way boarding works. Did going from window groups, middle seat groups to aisle seat groups not work? I hate having to squeeze through and hope I don’t knock anyone in the face with my bag. I don’t like I can’t pick my seat and that my seatbelt is a little too tight. If I get a seat in the back I’m waiting for everyone else to get on and then for them to get off the plane. I guess I’ll have to pay the $75 fee for “first class” next time since that’s the only way to update my seat. And if I have a “saver rate” ticket - I should be able to still change my flight within 24 hours. I wanted to come back a day earlier and it was the same price! But I would’ve had to cancel and repurchase for an additional $200!!!"
Pros: "Good leg room Good coffee"
Cons: "No iPads for rent. No in seat tv screens Seats are hard"
Pros: "We left on-time, without delays."
Cons: "There was a loud child behind me, but that has nothing to do with the airline, unless they enforced a silent cabin more."
Pros: "Simple ways that make the atmosphere in the air a little more welcoming and friendlier."
Pros: "The only positives were that the flight was on time and crew members were reliable."
Cons: "The seat was very dirty. I even felt the need to wipe it before I sat down, and the tissue I used became black. Otherwise, I felt like the plane was tight and uncomfortable for a 5.5 hour flight. At the end, one crew member was complaining about how slow we were to disembark to the people on the plane."
Pros: "I was happy it was a nonstop flight on a somewhat new and very clean plane. Plenty of leg room, though the seat almost felt narrow and the person next to me was on me the entire trip. Seat comfort was good, I prefer firmer padding on a longer trip. Attendants were attentive and quick about helping passengers but felt like they didn’t want to be there. Boarding was also fast, though slightly confusing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that after I booked my ticket Alaska moved the time to much earlier in the day and I had to take off work. There’s no built in screen; tablets are available to rent, but for the price tickets are I shouldn’t have to rent something or use up my battery. Plus having to either hold my phone/tablet the whole flight or use what little space I have on my tray to prop it up isn’t enjoyable. Also the snacks were lacking, one bag of cheese crackers was my only option for a flight over 5 hours."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight"
Cons: "Dirty tray table, crappy snack"
Pros: "I always love flying Alaska and the flight attendants are always super nice!"
Pros: "Clean airplane, great customer service, cheap tickets, carryon is free, airplane has plenty of carryon space, provide free inflight drink service and inflight movies. Never Fly Spirit Airlines"
Pros: "Excellent crew and gate staff, super friendly, accommodating, and patient."
Cons: "Lack of seatback IFE is a serious competitive disadvantage over Delta and others, particularly for coast-to-coast routes. Economy seat cushions are thin and wear you out on a transcontinental flight. And storage is extremely limited and inflexible given the hard plastic back of the seats and the barely-there netted space for personal items."
Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly sweet and helpful; one of them even gave me their personal TUMS when I said I didn't feel well."
Cons: "The flight boarded 30 minutes early; I arrived to my gate at the time of when my ticket said boarding started, but they were already calling final boarding call for my flight. I completely panicked. The plane was clean but the seats are very close together and there were no complimentary snacks- even though it was a 6 hour flight. On my flight back from Seattle on Delta, we got a complimentary meal AND a complimentary snack. I was expecting my Alaskan flight to be better based on everything I'd heard from friends, but my return Delta flight showed Alaska up; it was a spacier plane with way more food offered."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska. The crews are generally nice and the leather seats are comfortable, even in cattle class. I like that they often give out the Biscoff biscuits, yum. I had lots of room on several of my flights, on one of them I had an entire row to myself, which was awesome."
Cons: "The fact that even on 5+ hour-long flights they still charge for the food is a little silly to me. But maybe that's how they all do these days. Still, it's unfortunate, or, it might have been nice to have more than one snack served up on such a long flight. The wifi is a little hard to maneuver, even with an instruction card. The Go-go inflight thing is cool, but they don't really advertise that you need to download the app while you're still on the ground...which they should advertise in their concourses or something."
Pros: "I loved how helpful everyone was. It was our first time flying with a baby but everyone answered all of our questions and helped us."
Cons: "The only bad thing was on one of flights there was no changing table in the bathroom I used."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "seats could have been a little more comfortable"
Pros: "Good plane on time"
Cons: "I’ve got the latest iPad and software but entertainment system could not connect Only snack food for sale on an evening flight"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Cons: "The person next to me missed their connection due to sitting on the tarmak."
Pros: "Missed my flight at it was rescheduled for $25 without asking a questions"
Cons: "Flight was really packed and I was traveling with a baby and ended up sitting next to a heavier person who kept bumping into me and baby. Felt very constricted and tense but the passenger was very nice. I just paid a lot for ticket."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "They sent one of two bags on an earlier flight than we were on and we thought they had got lost"
Pros: "Flight was fine - can't really say much real good or bad - we slept most of the time. Left tablet on board and a crew member retrieved it for me and did so with a smile. Pretty happy with the flight."
Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late. I wasted an entire day sitting in the airport. You knew that the flight was late hours in advance and should have texted or emailed me to say as much. Instead, i checked in on time, and within 10 minutes we went from 'On Time' to four hours late due to equipment and crew. Very inconsiderate and unappreciated to your customer. The flight should have been free after such an inconsiderate gesture on your part. Instead, you send me a gift certificate that obligates me to spend more money with you in order to redeem it, and then within a certain period of time. If I have choice in the future, I'll lean toward a different airline than yours. You clearly do not value my time nor my business."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take flight due to punishing re book procedure that Alaska employs to basically steal money from it's customers."
Cons: "They weight the value of 1st leg much higher than the return AND they want to charge you $125 change fee. My grandma passed away and I needed to reschedule my itinerary. Alaska stuck to their policies (you know, those pages of microscopic text that is written by lawyers for sole reason of screwing the customer.) I just felt really abused; told them to keep the useless "credit". I booked with Delta. At what point does a company forget who they are supposed to be serving? Perhaps the people that are actually giving you money and keeping you in business?"
Pros: "Crew on flight was good. We left late but made up the time in flight."
Cons: "We purchased 2 one way tickets and were given confirmation of purchase. When we arrived at airport to check in we were told we were on standby only. If we could not get on the flight then the soonest we could fly out was 48+ hrs away, arriving in Seattle at 2 AM on Monday morning. we had no one available to pick us up, we live 1 hr away from airport. After many announcements and many incentives offered 2 young ladies did give up their seats and we could get on. The flight went well but we were extremely upset with the promise of confirmation and the obvious overbooking. It probably is what many airlines do but not good customer service was given to us. We often fly Alaska but this was a bad experience."
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: "I've always liked Alaska, but they really blew this one!"
Cons: "Mechanical delay started as a "few minutes back to the gate", then 1 1/2 hrs sitting on plane at the gate without updates, then "get off the plane while we turn off the air", another 2 hrs without definitive info, then "we're bringing in another plan in a couple of hours", then after 5 hours of waiting, an announcement that flight is cancelled. Finally they announced a replacement flight setup for 8am, but at 4am, Alaska sent texts that the replacement flight was delayed till 1:30 pm. We finally left Palm Springs for Seattle at 2:40, 26 hours late. But the worst part of the experience was the terrible communication. A few e-mails or texts or PA announcements as the time passed would have saved about 90 passengers the frustration of waiting hours at the gate area and ticketing desk for info about options. Alaska should have been more respectful of its customers. Minimal effort was made to answer our questions."
Pros: "The short flight was made especially nice with one flight attendant offering to give a free drink for showing Seattle seahawk pride! Either wearing a jersey or showing a picture with seahawk pride. Very friendly and fun! The views were very beautiful also! Love Alaska airlines and LOVE the seahawks!!"
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, loved the charging port on seatbacks, kind staff."
Cons: "Could've used more options on the entertainment website, or at least shown a movie for everyone"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late for no reason which ended up costing me $1500 and two days to rebook my return flight. Thanks, Alaska."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Generally clean. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wish there was more complimentary meals. Though they did offer us free cheese plate due to Christmas which was nice!"
Cons: "There was a 20 minute flight delay before we boarded. They announced there were mechanical difficulties, which took further time. After we left the gate, we were told that our pilots had timed out and we would need to return to the gate to get a new crew. We taxied for a long time back to the gate, then there were further delays while they added the gas they had used in taxiing. In the end, we arrived more than 2 hours late. It is hard to understand why they didn't anticipate this and replace our pilots before we left the gate. This was the return part of a round trip ticket; there was also a more than 2 hour delay on our earlier flight due to mechanical difficulties."
Cons: "They kept canceling flights even though other flights were going out of Seattle and landing in Bozeman. But the gate agents were promising that the next flight wasn't gong to be cancelled and that I was going to have a seat, so I didn't book another flight from Seattle to Bozeman on a different carrier. So I spend 3 full days waiting at the boarding gate with the gate agent saying boarding would begin in 30 minutes the whole time. Finally they just sent me back home to Oakland. I missed my last chance to see my grandfather alive. He just passed away. To add insult to injury, they they wouldn't refund the ticket because I "used" the ticket for a lovely vacation to the Seattle airport for 3 days."
Cons: "It's always a let down when transferring from an international airline to a domestic one that nickels and dimes you for food and drink"
Pros: "Great airline that gets you to where you need to go on time and with comfort."
Cons: "The check in process was cumbersome with being able to partially get checked in at a computer kiosk and then having to wait in line to see an agent while other people are jumping the queue and not having to wait... then having stood in line for 10 minutes an agent tells you that you could have been in the "fast" lane... but there is no or little signage indicating which line you should be in.... that's frustrating. Don't expect your customers to be unconsciously aware of all of your convoluted business practices... put some signs out... we at least like a hint. Other than that, for air travel it was a very good experience."
Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("
Cons: "Something unexpected came up and I was unable to fly out on the date the ticket was purchased for. I contacted the airline several weeks to see what options I had to switch flights, or get a voucher for a later date. No flexibility. I purchased a one way ticket for $125.60 and they have a cancel/transfer fee of $125. So I had a wasted ticket that just flew empty. I asked if I could transfer the ticket to someone else... They said $125. They told me if I had purchased the travelers insurance it still would be the same fees as well. Not earning my business."
Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and simple. Fill from the back to the front, now weird zones and scattered boarding process"
Cons: "Considering that gas prices have seriously dropped and the airline continues to charge me an extra $25 to travel with luggage, you'd think they would offer passengers more than a single micro bag of pretzels and a cup a soda as complimentary item on a four hour flight."
The crew members were wonderfully responsive to requests such as a Kosher meal when we forgot to order it in advance. While it was not available on the PHX to London flight, the steward found one for me on the London to Tel Aviv leg of my journey. In any event, the stewardess on that first flight took the time to explain to me why there were no extra Kosher meals. Both parts of my travel were very comfortable. Sylvia D.
Finnair and the country of Finland are vegan friendly! My daughter enjoyed her meals! Thank you
Pros: "The crew were amazing, kind and attentive. My seat 30H had the ultimate leg room ( I am 6' 4") so it was fantastic for me. The food was quite tasty. Really enjoyed the humorous BA video for the safety"
Pros: "It was absolutely on time. Great!"
Cons: "The meal is always too spicy and for more south Asian style. I prefer more European meal."
Pros: "The flight was relatively on time and the crew was nice"
Cons: "The food was not the British Airways high quality"
Cons: "Just not enough room in the economy class, especially when the person in front reclines their seat."
Cons: "Late getting off."
Pros: "Excellent service I don’t have nothing to say was amazing"
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Earphone, squashy seat, limited leg space in economy class"
Pros: "Ability to quickly board the plane"
Cons: "You had to pay for snacks and drinks on this flight"
Pros: "Food was decent, crew lovely but 9 hours in a seat that was ridiculously narrow and tight left me less than delighted. And I’m a very average sized woman. I felt like a t-rex trying to eat my meal."
Cons: "See above for overal review."
Pros: "Breakfast burritos were a nice change."
Cons: "I did not like a seat under E row as the seats feel. Crammed."
Pros: "Was just very comfortable seats and a great crew"
Cons: "We never got there."
Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."
Pros: "I got free juice and a snack, almost unheard of nowadays!"
Cons: "I don't know what happened. Check-in took almost an hour. Usually it only takes 10 or 15 minutes. I am glad that I got to the airport 2 hours a head of time."
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants. Flight was on time."
Cons: "2 cups of hot tea-norhing else- cost 4 pounds!"
Pros: "The boarding and crew were fine."
Cons: "I did not like the lack of complementary coffee or other drink for a two hour flight, especially at that time of the morning. Coffee was available, but only for a price, as were other food items. This was unexpected and certainly not appreciated."
Pros: "The flight went really easy and smooth. The cabin crew was very efficient doesn't disturb you during the fligh with sales therefore you can focus on your things."
Pros: "the staff"
Cons: "aircraft, food, entertainment"
Pros: "The crew made your needs a top priority which was nice. This trip was my first time flying British Airways, I normally fly United, but the price was too good to pass up. I will definitely be using BA in the future from now on. Overall a great experience!"
Cons: "None! All pros!"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "exit row seating was very nice, good service and decent food."
Cons: "entertainment screens were small and did not work for the majority of the flight"
Pros: "I liked the plane layout, 2/3/2 across. The stewards were fine given what they have to deal with. I made it back without incident."
Cons: "Seating and service on planes has become so awful that I worry about my safety as an older person. If something happens on a flight like this, where there is no room, stressed stewards and disgruntled passengers, what would happen? If you are tall, there is no room for your legs. Seat my not go back."
Pros: "Entertainment and space."
Cons: "Seat cushioning, and food quality."
Pros: "the landing, because I was able to get off the plane."
Cons: "The staff isn't that friendly. Particularly at the airport, and the planes are just okay. nothing was free, not even a soda!!! they charged the two ladies next to me for tea!!!! water, a cup and a teabag, how much could this possibly cost?? the plane was nasty and dirty. when the seatback tray was lowered, the seat back was splashed and dirty. yuck!!!"
Pros: "The 787s are super spacious!! Economy class never felt so good."
Cons: "Didn’t not make it the flight because the Wheelchair took forever to pick us up from there a aircraft"
Pros: "Clean plane with good crew"
Cons: "Come on BA, you are meant to be a service airline..... not completing with EasyJet and Ryanair....."
Pros: "Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Having to pay for coffee! And it tasted terrible! C'mon!"
Pros: "Communication regarding weather problems"
Cons: "My luggage arrived 3 days after I did. Communication between baggage delivery service and BA baggage reps terrible. BA baggage reps never told delivery service the hotel room I was at was registered under another name. BA baggage reps gave me miss information each time I spoke with them."
Pros: "Flight on time, flight attendants were great."
Cons: "I didn't like that my 22 year old granddaughter was separated from my other granddaughtner and me while we were going or water and food. When we returned, we were told that this was an extra security check required by the US gov. and that she would be returned before boarding. That was my grandstanding at least . What happened was that she was not returned and no further communicated with my other granddaughter and me by the time the plane was being hoarded. It doesn't require a vivid imagination to think of fake BAW employees and human trafficking tp understand why I was terrified by the disappearance without return of my green eyed ,lovely young granddaughter."
Pros: "I like the way they treat people. Each crew member was friendly and worked very hard to please everyone"
Cons: "I have no negative comments."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, no fuss no muss. Premium economy worth the price"
Cons: "Kosher food was frozen - inedible. Chicken dry. Worst meal ever on a plane"
Cons: "I on line checked in but it only checked me in for this flight and not my next flight which meant I was on standby. Agent at check-in could not change it."
Cons: "the fact I had to 464 pounds robbing b"
Pros: "Capt informative pertaining to delay"
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks and food"
Pros: "Nice new airplane (787). On time. Good food. Plenty of fluids served."
Pros: "On time and accommodating"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, crew was nice, ride was smooth."
Cons: "I had a very tight layover and it took forever to get off of the plane, I nearly missed my next flight - it would be nice if short layover passengers got de-boarding priority."
Pros: "The connecting flight got canceled and 24 hours latter we are still in the airport trying to get to our final destination."
Cons: "We rebooked our flight to another flight firvthe following day and that one got canceled too. They have not returned our luggage yet. They said within a week we'll get our luggage. The worst company on the planet. Do not fly them. Our vacation has turned into a nightmare. We had to repurchase tickets with a different company so we can get to our final destination. We don't know if we'll get reimbursed for any portion of this."
Pros: "It was great. Staff was very nice."
Pros: "Did a good job of being attentive to passengers"
Pros: "Got me back to the UK"
Cons: "Lack of storage around seat Lack of privacy Felt like a patient on a trolley Heavy handed portion control Club larder stocked with leftovers Poor quality tableware, that was chipped"
Cons: "THEY CHANGED OUR FLIGHT FROM NEWARK TO JFK WITHOUT TELLING US"
Pros: "Food and space to seat"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Staff was cheerful"
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Cons: "Passengers were not wearing the mask appropriately and the AA crew didn’t do anything about it. The flight was so packed that was not space for social distancing. As a healthcare professional I just feel that AA is not really concerned with doing their part to avoid the spread of the virus and minimize the number of deaths from the actual pandemic. As a professional that has been in the frontline to combat this pandemic I don’t feel safe traveling in the AA flights anymore. I don’t feel that AA cares abouymy well-being and health to keep going where is need to fight this cause. I’m sorry I’m very disappointed and frustrated after this experience."
Pros: "The crew did great"
Cons: "During covid-19 they are not even attempting at providing a modicum of social distancing. Every seat in both of my flights was completely filled, meaning that we were squished up next to everyone despite any efforts to stay 6ft away from each other in the airports. Many passengers were wearing their masks incorrectly (not covering their nose, TAKING OFF THE MASK TO SNEEZE) and were not being asked to wear their mask properly by staff. I felt completely unsafe and won't be flying American again until there is a vaccine for covid."
Cons: "All was good."
Cons: "The plane was cold!"
Cons: "The flight boarded twenty minutes late despite the plane being at the gate early scheduled departure. Baggage took another forty minutes to load. Then they decided there we were overweight (data that should be known before the cargo was loaded) and off loaded two people. Then after another delay they realised that off loading people meant off loading their baggagge, total delay nearly 2 hours The hedset socket on the entertainment system did not work The USB port did not work THey ran out of food after serving three rows, loaded four sandwiches, no wraps and 2 cheese plates for a full evening flight that was over 5 hours in duration including the delays."
Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."
Pros: "Absolutely atrocious!"
Cons: "Dallas Airport needs to get themselves together. Especially American Airlines through Dallas. I wouldn’t wish the AA Dallas experience on my worst enemy.... yet another fail for AA Dallas."
Cons: "Late. Again. For no good reason."
Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."
Pros: "Crew was cordial. Pilot did treat during some rough turbulence."
Cons: "Late boarding, narrow seats"
Cons: "on time, delayed flight missed connection"
Pros: "That I arrived on time"
Cons: "Without any kind of entertainment, Some soft music will be better than the aircraft noise.."
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."
Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"
Pros: "Great classical music selection, great entertainment program. Unfortunately, not working for all, system was re booted but didn't work for all but for me"
Cons: "The special meal I requested was not available"
Cons: "First flight TUS to DFW was delayed by 3 hours causeing us to mist all the remaining flights. Had to scramble to find other flights DFW to LHR and LHR to DUB. We arrived at our destination 10 hours. No reason for the delay was given. Lousey service on AA."
Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."
Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."
Cons: "Air conditioning seemed to be inoperative. I asked the flight attendant and they said they couldn’t do anything about it. When it’s a 12+ hour flight that’s a problem"
Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, even with the blankets we were given."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in counter made fun of my surname. Bad start but not noteworthy unless combined with the rest of the experience. The flight was delayed causing me to miss another AA connection by minutes. Waited in line to be told I wouldn't get on a flight til the following day, they couldn't help with accommodation and I wouldn't receive my luggage until the following day. In short, AA left me stranded in a strange city at midnight with no accommodation and no luggage. It was 18 degrees and I was in t-shirt and shorts. What a memory."
Pros: "The fact that the plane landed."
Cons: "American Airlines is running neck and neck with United, competing for the world’s worst airline. They have crammed so many seats onto their planes that I’m surprised it isn’t a health hazard. I was in an aisle seat and every time I started to fall asleep, someone going down the aisle slammed into me, making any sort of rest impossible. And the flight attendants had the typical U.S. flight attendant perma-rage, of course. I feel sorry for them, underpaid and overworked, but always p***ed off. Anerican Airlines needs to look at Emirates and other non-U.S. carriers to learn how to treat their passengers."
Cons: "I was on a flight to Dallas on an American Airline flight which arrived late due to weather conditions, and the connecting flight didn't even wait for me although they know why I couldn't make it on time. And I was only late for about 5 minutes."
Cons: "AA gate crew checked my bag at the gate, but to the wrong person!! I missed my flight because I had to go find it in baggage claim, take a taxi to another terminal, hoof it across the terminal to TSA pre-check which was 45 people deep and slow as a snail, then run to the gate (which was at the ooooother end I originally entered through). I missed my flight literally by 3 minutes. There was no one at the gate to help me, AA staff kept telling me to go to different places, getting a new flight was INSANE. The whole experience was a pure nightmare."
Cons: "The crew was abrupt, harsh, spoke down to the passengers, sighed, rolled their eyes, etc. It's their job to serve drinks, and attend to passenger requests and needs. They made it seem like they were being put upon to get a glass of hot water or coffee. If someone asked what type of juice they had, they rolled their eyes and answered rudely. No one smiled and seemed friendly"
Pros: "Very friendly, constantly hard working crew. They didn't stop moving through the cabin for the whole flight. Swift boarding."
Cons: "Extremely poor food. Airline food is rarely enjoyable but I had two mouthfuls of my pasta and left the rest even though I was hungry. Dreadful "entertainment " system. 4 tiny screens over the centre row is seats showed the in flight movies. This on a transatlantic flight. What decade are American Airlines in?! The fleet look like they date back to the '90's at best!!"
Pros: "More options for food like rice chicken or rice beef"
Cons: "Pls have decent meal plans and the seats were very uncomfortable American Airlines need improvement in all areas"
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "Started when 7 am flight from Knoxville was delayed - multiple times until finally at 4 PM there were no options. Nobody with AA saying a single word all this time even when asked. Finally called their customer service line only to learn that I could get on another flight that left in a few minutes. Door was still open but gate agent argued with the lady on 800 line about who could ticket faster. By time they finished arguing the door closed. That began a 14 hour nightmare of bumping between flights and delays and the inevitable lost luggage. Paid for $300 hotel room at Vancouver that I will get to stay in for 4 hours. Will NEVER fly American again"
Cons: "Service, poor rebooking process, lack of communication."
Pros: "The entire fly, connections, food and both crews excelente. Flight on time."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and was rebooked the following day. Plane arrived to my destination 25 minutes late."
Cons: "Flight from LAX was late causing our flight to leave 2 hours late missing our flight to CAE. This would have caused us to miss wedding events on Sat Drove to DIA took Red Eye to CLT and drove to CAE to pick up car and drive to Charleston for wedding event at 11:00 Am"
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
Pros: "Had a airline steward named Scott that was very pleasant and nice all throughout the flight."
Cons: "The plane was late/delayed going from Dallas to Colorado and the plane going from Colorado back to Dallas was late/delayed as well ."
Pros: "Standard flight , however I can't believe what most passengers bring on as cabin baggage !!"
Cons: "Evening meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable and considering that they co-share with Qantas , American could learn about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"
Cons: "I had reserved seats 31A and 15C for my flights 1561 and 6779, goinf Frankfurt to Dallas, and Dallas to San Jose. The charge for reserving seats was $182.03. Instead, I was put in mid-row seats 42D and 24E, on both flights. No notification or explanations from American Airlines or Kayak, and no refund...yet. Any comments?"
Cons: "Several consecutive issues delayed our start, then had a weather hold before we could descend. VERY crowded, got stuck with a window seat with a very large man next to me--better than B or D, at least."
Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."
Pros: "Crew was nice, drinks"
Cons: "Ended up landing in Oklahoma, no hotel available even with the voucher, no food in airport,"
Cons: "Then take different fly from Florida to NC then waiting another fly at 5:45 pm to Dallas at 8:45pm. My fly should be 1:30 to Dallas 4:30pm non stop, that day we have appointments 8Pm. End up we back to Dallas 9Pm is bad. If we waiting for fly from 8Pm delay we may be home or be home at midnight time that is very bad."
Cons: "Second time I fly to Springfield and it's delayed at least a didn't have to sleep in the airport like the first time"
Pros: "We made it one piece and the pilot clearly made an effort to avoid turbulence by changing altitude constantly in search of smooth air."
Cons: "Crew brought food whether you wanted it or not. They loaded up my husband's tray table with food for 3, even though they were all asleep. I was sitting across the way, so, perhaps they didn't hear me say no thanks. The entertainment system was awful. You had to go through all the steps again and again every time you tried to simply check flight information. Annoying. When we arrived DFW customs, one of our bags was missing. Still in London. No surprise. LHR is awful. We would not see that bag again for nearly 4 days. They gave me some thing about a belt problem between T5 and T3 in LHR. We went from T3 to T3. No excuse. Probably fell off somewhere. Chocolates were a bit melted and chip bags burst. Whenever it was, it sat in heat."
Cons: "I do not understand when a global carrier knows the plane will not arrive the next day that they do not find a suitable replacement. The plane interior was outdated!"
Pros: "Ticket price is reasonable when I bought it 6 weeks before my trip."
Cons: "No entertainment. Plane is old and crowded. Boarding was very late. The rest was just ok."
The plane from Toronto to LA had barely space enough for my knees..I am 5.2 145pds..so not as large as a lot of people..could barely make it to the bathroom..I need to loose 30pds to fit in those seats
I liked the entertainment and thought the service was good. Better service would help by having more opportunities to pick up trash and if there is fan service to allow individuals to have more cool air options available for their individual seat.
Cons: "The fact I was delayed 2 hours. Missed my connection. Spoke with customer care about getting a flight out of Toronto the next morning because of connection issues instead of late that evening."
Pros: "Nice staff friendly clean plane. Big plane for overseas. Enjoyed the variety of movies to watch for free."
Cons: "Bathroom started off clean. 1/2 way into the flight not so clean. At the end no paper and dirty. Lack of maintenance in this area is a concern."
Cons: "Seats are always a pain in the butt Wifi has never worked for me -slow and keeps dropping"
Cons: "Flight was more than 2 hours late - same as the flight from Columbus to Toronto when we left- the ground crew did not know or care where the plane (a replacement craft) was coming from or when it arrived and let it sit on the ramp for about 15 minutes before marshaling it in and the seats we got after waiting all that time were excessively worn and felt like we were sitting in bowls. The logistics either of Air Canada or at the Toronto airport for domestic flights stinks. I will try to avoid both in future."
Cons: "Everyone on the plane was freezing and the crew could not do anything about it"
Pros: "There is no built in entertainment system. Download the app on your phone to be able to watch movies in flight."
Cons: "Not much room in economy class."
Cons: "Late 1.5 hrs both ways Should announce if connecting flights are being held"
Pros: "There seems to have been improvements to the check in and boarding for disabled disabled passengers like myself at Pearson. Much easier to drop off luggage and move quickly to the wheelchair pickup area. Staff were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Spacing between seats continues to be a problem especially for disabled clients. Because I was travelling alone, I was asked if I would move to accommodate someone with a pet carrier that would not fit under the seat they were in. I declined but wondered how they were allowed to board with an oversized case. Also seemed strange to ask a disabled passenger to move."
Pros: "Take off and landing smooth and relatively smooth in between."
Cons: "6 hour flight no food included. Came by twice for beverages. No entertainment. Probably the first time in 10 years I've been on a flight without any screens for entertainment. Goes without saying, no USB plug in."
Cons: "Rouge is terrible compares to regular Air Canada."
Pros: "When the flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues my flights from Victoria to Cancun was rerouted through Toronto with free hotel where my brother and I shared a bottle of wine at Air Canada's expense..."
Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."
Pros: "Staff was courteous."
Cons: "Entertainment Was limited. Ran out of options for food because of flightbdeparture delay we were over 6hours on flight and many were hungry."
Pros: "Food was okay. Crew was okay."
Cons: "Plane was so packed and tight we felt like sardines. Even a few more inches of room would make a huge difference. They also added two or three extra rows to the back of the plane. Folks were practically sitting in the crew staging area and literally directly next to the bathroom door. So glad we didn't get one of those seats."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."
Pros: "Air Canada Rouge business class is excellent I would recommend it to anyone"
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like"
Pros: "We flew to Toronto on the rebooked flight and we were treated very badly by the gate agent who simply told us: Go see customer service, you are not on this flight' without even an attempt to explain why we could not get on to the flight to London. I think they do not respect their customers. Very disappointed with Air Canada' service."
Cons: "Nothing about our trip to London on Air Canada was positive. We had requested vegetarian meals for all our flights. They did not provide us any food on the flight because they did not have our names on the list for Vegetarian meals on the rebooked flight. Our experience with Air Canada was everything that is the worst in airline travel and customer service."
Pros: "the crew are super friendly. even on a little plane from DC-Toronto they had entertainment options which i wouldn't have expected. boarded quickly and landed on time. nobody bats an eye at my wife's weird beverage requests."
Cons: "the cabin of the plane on the return flight didn't have any air conditioning running during boarding and it was uncomfortably hot because it was about 85F outside. the crew only bothered to inform us of the issue when a poor hungover guy behind me asked about it because he was suffering... as were we all. plane didn't get comfortable until over 30 minutes in, at which point we were beginning our descent anyway."
Pros: "Seats comfortable"
Cons: "No overhead bin for centre section of row that my seat was in made it very inconvenient. It seemed to take far too long to offload the plane at the gate; we waited over 10 minutes for the door to open."
Pros: "Access to their entertainment (movie, tv) channels was appreciated. I did not have this option on my departing flight which was the same duration."
Cons: "The plane cabin was surprisingly hot when we boarded and for most of the flight, though it did become bearable. Had to struggle to take my jacket off when seated (as did others)."
Cons: "I was near the back of the plane and by the time the food cart came by, a lot of the items were sold out."
Pros: "I found the crew in this flight very accommodating and pleasant......"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The crew was absolutely terrible and very rude"
Pros: "On time. Clean plane"
Cons: "Miscommunication with luggage No food included but at extra cost No entertaining at all! Only through wifi in your own device and you have to download an app BEFORE boarding for it to work but yet, no one tells you"
Pros: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "I had a window seat and there really wasn't a lot of leg room because of how the body of the plane curves. Food was ok. Not a lot of elbow room to eat."
Cons: "I tried to call your airlines to reserve a spot for humanitarian supplies. I run a rescue for dogs in Cancun. I could never get through to anyone and there is no info on your tickets about the cost of a third bag. I was charged an extra $500.00 for two extra bags that were carrying donated supplies to help the animals. But your airline made it a useless endeavor because they ended up costing more than they were worth. The people at the gate were unbending and I'm so disappointed that it is more important to you to make money than help non-profit organizations. I have run Isla Animals for 15 years and have had much help from kind airlines, I won't be flying yours or recommending yours to any dog lovers."
Pros: "Crew is quite young and friendly.. good service. Boarding was quick and easy. Blanket and neck pillow package were comfy and worth the $7"
Cons: "The plane was FREEZING and the seats are a bit cramped."
Pros: "Little turbulence, smooth flight"
Cons: "In flight entertainmento, had to rent a device to watch a movie on an 8 and 1/2 hour flight, there was no tv's on seat backs."
Cons: "Personal movies had horrid sound"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Cons: "on march 13/ 2016 booked my tickets on kayak.com so end up getting it with vayama.on july 28 missed my flight for a family raison called vayama and explained the situation they said they will help me just they need to confirm with the airlines (air canada) and they will give me new tickets.no body called me back ,called air canada said: we have ticket but you need to get it from vayama.called vayama again he said sorry about that i will let everyone know and he promise me that i will get help a.s.a.p.did't hear from them left with my wife and two kids in morocco for a week end up buying new tickets from laufthansa."
Cons: "It is unacceptable for a big airline company not to include any complimentary meal for a five hour flight. Even low coast companies include the meals. First time I see that."
Pros: "I had a five year old and an eleven year old traveling with me and was able to board early and get them settled before everyone else got on."
Cons: "We didn't see much of the flight attendants and my grandson became ill. We could have used more water throughout the flight as that may have prevented him from getting sick."
Cons: "Captain's announcements were inaudible from the wing seats. Seats very cramped - I'm only 5 feet tall and barely had room for my legs. Also, unable to see safety demonstration as the seat backs were too tall for a short person to see anything but the back of the seat in front of me."
Cons: "We were on the Tarmac for almost two hours before take off. We were served only cold drinks and pretzels, no tea or coffee, during the entire time. There was very little leg room, the seats were cramped and inadequate luggage space."
Cons: "I miss individual entertainment screens for such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Aircraft was nice."
Cons: "Our flight time was changed several times on the flight. The original seat map that I was able to choose seats from was wrong, forcing me or my son to sit in the middle seat. This was unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was nice, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "Our first Air Canada flight was 2hr delayed due to mechanical error. After a 2hr delay, we finally flew for 1hr, had awful turbulence on the way down, and got to Toronto only to find out there was no customer service desk. We missed our connection with Luftanza and had to fly Air Canada again. First off, we couldn't get on another flight until the next morning. Then the desk never called the hotel they gave us the voucher for, so when we showed up at midnight the hotel was fully booked and had no room for us. We had to fly into Heathrow instead of Gatwick (final destination was Brighton for an international conference). We missed the entire first day of the meeting and had to rent a car for 65 pounds each to take us to Brighton from Heathrow, finally arriving at our hotel by midnight. The customer service was non-existent for Air Canada. We literally are going to have to email them."
Pros: "Great flight, entertainment system, flight staff made me feel at home"
Pros: "My air Canada app. Worked great for entertainment"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for over an hour before we could take off The plane needs a good cleaning. Small size bits of garbage on the floor next to the wall. It's getting missed ... Needs to be vacuumed"
Cons: "Even though this flight was operated by CA and booked through Ethiopian, they would not honor my two checked bags. However, the guy behind me - also going to Ethiopia - they allowed two checked bags, no charge. I always feel like they aren't willing to budge or look up the rules or even just be nice about baggage. I'd rather not give any more $$ for baggage that i'm actually allowed."
Pros: "The flight left on time. The crew were polite and professional. The pilot didn't hit any bumps in the air."
Cons: "I don't like flying in general. It is one long hassle from what you can carry in your luggage to the cramped quarters. It is still faster than driving."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We did not know about having to download the App for the entertainment option. This would have been good to know before hand"
Cons: "i was not able to travel with my spouse. the seat allocation process did not allow me to set this up prior to the flight or at the airport"
Pros: "Entertainment was decent, and one of the crew members was very kind. The others seemed overworked."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours for maintenance, which was better than flying with a maintenance problem. Would have appreciated better information/communication about the delay."
Pros: "The space in economy plus. But the crew making sure we had room due to social distancing the best they could with what space they had to work with on the plane."
Pros: "Nothing in special."
Cons: "We took two United flights today.... Both were delayed... Really annoyed by it. Took Delta and AA some days ago without a hickpup."
Pros: "The crew was kind and entertaining and super helpful"
Pros: "He united crew in Chicago were awesome, they got us on a much quicker connection home! Great customer service"
Pros: "It was a pretty good flight. Everything was great other than I felt very rushed and felt like I bothered the flight attendant when I asked for sugar with my tea. I tried to ask for a stir stick with my sugar but she had already moved on. The flight was also very cold."
Cons: "The temperature could have been warmer (i had pants and 4 shirts on and still felt cold). I also felt like I was rushed and unable to get all the items I needed with my tea from the female flight attendant."
Pros: "Entertainment was quite good"
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable for long travel"
Pros: "The crew was really nice. Flight was quicker than expected."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable. Boarding process should be more organization. Snacks could be way better."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin AirConditioning fault. Air bridge fault all delayed flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Antonio"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"
Cons: "Fellow passengers; too many howling kids with clueless parents"
Cons: "I was told that I had to gate check my bags which had all of the necessities to travel with my child ( snacks, books, toys) due to it being a full flight. When I boarded, there were still several overhead storage bins completely empty. Very annoying. The crew could have physicallt assessed and checked before assuming due to flight capacity."
Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Pros: "At least I could watch movies."
Cons: "After a long journey in Japan, flying United back to the U.S. was a rude awakening. Their crew has no regard for the manners or respect in Japanese society. I was sitting in an exit row aisle behind a restroom in economy. The staff kept bumping into me and my entertainment system as they tried to rush up and down the aisles. Really taking a breath and walking more slowly could have resolved this. At one point, the staff almost caught my arm between my seat and their rolly cart. The plane was old and in disrepair. My neighbor's entertainment system screen needed to be propped up with duct tape. The seats are stiff and uncomfortable, and the headrests are designed so that if you have a U head support, it will collide with the headrest and curve your back into a C. Some staff could use a refresher on basic Japanese. One flight attendant kept asking everyone "US Citizen or 日本語？" which means Japanese Language. Those are not mutually exclusive questions for many bilingual flyers. I usually tolerate airplane food, but this was the first meal I could not eat on a plane. It was eggs and hash browns, and it was so mushy and salty, I decided to pass. The bathrooms dirty quickly, and are a disappointment compared to the amenities provided on your basic Asian carrier. No toothbrush. No hand lotion. Just soap. We left Narita after 5 pm, and were served this weird dinner breakfast meal. Six hours later (of a 12 hour flight) it was about 11 pm in Tokyo, and 7 am in the destination city of Houston. Might as well get back to American schedules? I don't know, but when I was naturally getting tired and putting on my sleepmask and earplugs to get some rest, a rude flight attendant kept asking me if I wanted breakfast or orange juice, shoving items in front of me (with one hand, a no-no in Japanese culture), and repeatedly asking me despite me shaking my head no. I really don't know where they hired these people. My bag got held up by customs in Houston, and United transfered it to a third party courier service who tried to call me at 1 am to deliver it. That was a bit later than I expected, and I missed the call. The next day, I tried to call the driver, who hung up on me! I called their customer support, who was unable to contact the driver or the delivery service. Just who did they hand my bags to? Thankfully, after an 18 hour wait, I got my bags back, but it was a stressful wait. Throw a dart at a list of Asian airlines, they're all better than United."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Scheduled to arrive in Honolulu @ 7p on 10/7 but won’t arrive until 10/6 @ 11:26a. My only daughter re-enlisted in the military and I was due to attend the ceremony but because of United Airlines that didn’t happen. So disappointed as she is also. Overall such a horrible experience!"
Pros: "Boarding and checking in was great.."
Cons: "there where some issues with the airplane from the beginning we were inform that the seat belt and cigarette icons lights were no working . but then they have to call technicians to do a recheck on the plane so there more issues no just about the lights we have to stay in the plane until fixed some people lost their connection flights. the terminal where we landed was a long walk to customs then pick up bags and transport to the next terminal no enough time to eat between flights. to stressful ."
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
Pros: "The stewardesses were fabulous! Very kind and accommodating. Both candy and the other woman helped me out in getting my musical instrument onboard without it being a hassle."
Cons: "Seats could've reclined a little more."
Cons: "What is Kayak anyway? Check your records Kayak in no way helped my travels. Kayak was not able to book my lame flights with the lame and soon to be bankrupt again airlines. Kayak has done nothing but waste my time. Thanks. Is Kayak publicly traded? I'll have to look that up. Great short sale right there."
Cons: "We we're delayed at customs and missed our flight. We were told we were re-booked on a flight, so we ran across the airport, with two small children, to make that flight only to be told that weren't actually re-booked and needed to go standby. We then waited in line at customer service for two hours to be informed that United won't pay for a hotel. The customer service rep. did offer that if we wanted to take our kids across the airport, now at 11:30 at night, we could look for a United Supervisor in Terminal E, and if we were lucky enough to find one, they might override the policy and cover the hotel. Really! I understand that United doesn't have control over customs, but United did book an international flight with just over an hour layover, knowing that any slowdown in customs means missed flights. That's fine. The problem I have is when it happened, United's Customer Service model was to provide misinformation, incredible slow service, and what seemed like a complete lack of interest by United employees to do anything to make the situation better. There were no supervisors at the service counter, only 1 representative for an hour or so, and when the other representatives showed up, they were discussing going on break and going home. All with a very long line of people stuck in the airport waiting to get some help. I could accept this as an isolated instance, but since booking this trip, I have been getting the same level of service over the phone while trying to submit a refund request for my son who did not join us on the trip. United's 24 hour refund policy has taken 6 weeks and many hours online and on the phone and I still have no idea what the status of that request is, and apparently neither does anybody at United. The interaction I have had with your employees have been friendly and courteous, but extremely time consuming, with a lot of incorrect information and no resolution. Very mediocre at best."
Cons: "The plane was delayed because it had no air conditioning. We got on after an hour and a half delay with NO AIR. I was almost sick the entire flight because it was so hot."
Pros: "The space of the plane since I volunteered to be at the emergency door I felt comfortable..."
Cons: "Not giving me my seat number because my ticket was not a standby ticket and I seem to think that the agent thought that I was on standby but I have to go to him several time to make him understand that my ticket had a confirmation number and I did a reserve and I needed a seat number it was not on standby when he checked it he said okay and I also explained to him that I was a military personnel ... The agent should treat us with respect you should have gave me a better information and just throw me away then going back to him several times for the correct solution..."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The ticket staff. The only thing about the Harlingen airport is that it needs more than a couple of exray machines ....the Valley is woefully behind in staff training and technology. It took forever to get through the short lines...it was too long of a wait."
Cons: "The way that a couple of young AA men who were biligirent, combative and vulgar upset about their seat assignments. I told one of the young men to stop using vulgarity and no way to treat the lady that was doing her job, she continued treating them with courtesy and they kept mumbling under their breath God knows what. So young and already so bitter. They were towering over her and took a confrontational stance...she finally called security. I would not allowed them on the plane. I commend the young lady there in Harlingen."
Pros: "Professionalism from the crew."
Cons: "Purchased a Basic Flight and although the flight and crew were great. The seat were uncomfortable in the sense that they did not recline even a bit. Otherwise good."
Pros: "Finally getting to SEA"
Cons: "The Captain kept lying to the passengers why we were delaid ! Finally after 40 minutes sitting on the ramp he came on and apolized for telling us the wrong information but actually what happened was someone loaded all the luggage in the aft baggage compdartment incorrectly and they had to reload the the bags and move then to the forward compartment This certainty didn't give you a safe feeling knowing there ground crew didn't know ho to load there plane correctly! Another reason not to fly United Airlines! Everett Johnson, Bellevue Wash."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for about an hour - The planes were backed up on the tarmac. It is aggravating to think that you have enough time to make a connection and then to be waiting around for such a long time to take off. Paying for movies."
Pros: "On the whole plane,my row was the only one with a vacant seat. I needed wheelchair assistance getting from check -in counter to the plane and the person who helped me could not have been nicer or more helpful."
Cons: "The savory pretzel snack was very skimpy and I could not drink their water because they only had Dasani which contains an ingredient that I am allergic to."
Cons: "My friend traveling with me was not allowed on the plane at first because united said he didn't have a ticket. I had to get off the plane and go show them our confirmation info and where we had already checked in for the flight. Still took anther 15 minutes and they where very rude until they realized their mistake...."
Pros: "Safe landing in windy conditions."
Cons: "Air-con failure delayed departure. No complimentary food or OH. Poor legroom. Nothing"
Cons: "Ended up sitting on the tarmac for 30-40 minutes. Many people almost missed or did miss flights."
Pros: "I liked that my flight was on time and fast boarding."
Cons: "Paying the extra for my baggage. It was only one bag to check and had to pay an extra $50 for round trip."
Pros: "I like everything!!everyone was so nice that it makes you feel so welcome and that you're like in home!!!"
Pros: "Isle seat as empty but when i asked to move they told me i would have to pay over $100 and we were ready to take off so no one ever used the seat and i was smushed by the window the whole time."
Pros: "Quick flight to Chicago"
Cons: "The attendant was kind of rude"
Pros: "My flight was on time. I appreciate that."
Cons: "Narrow seats. Literally no leg room for me. It was a terrible time for me, especially since I was in the middle seat."
Pros: "Typical flight. Crew was fine, nothing great or memorable. Free movies on devices are nice - although it would be nice for gate agents to mention it prior to boarding so guests without cell service could download the app on the airports wireless prior to boarding if they didn't already have it."
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. Couldn't hear the PA's for boarding. Didn't get the boarding group thing since there was absolutely no division of where groups should be and no room for the group lines until it backs into the wall. Upon boarding I noticed we were in the center seating which was not what I had booked directly with United. When I had originally called, I explained there were four of us and the explained we could have 2 and 2 by a window but in separate groups or 2 and 2 behind the others in the middle rows. I wanted the window seats. Upon getting the res notification I noticed it was in the center so I called to have it switched to the window rows as previously requested and he said no problem and he would change them. I guess I should have followed up again since once on the plane we were in the center seats. I explained to one of the flight attendants since this was kind of a big deal. She was going to check with the gate agent and get back to me. I never heard from her again even though she knew where we were sitting. I guess she was busy and forgot! The four of us were tired and fell asleep which caused us to miss the meal which was served very early in the flight. No problem until later in the flight I asked the female flight attendant in the back if I could get a meal or some snacks for my daughter since she was now hungry. She told me she would check on it when the seat belt sign was turned off. At this time it had been smooth for quite some time and many passengers and other flight attendants were up and walking around. So if this fa was so concerned shouldn't she be telling everyone else to sit down instead of sitting in the back READING A BOOK? I still didn't have a problem as we patiently waited until she just didn't acknowledge us. Finally, I made the same request to a male fa while the same female was right behind him. He was great and came back soon with a meal I believe he may have retrieved from 1st class. He said the original ones in the back had been sitting to long. Great job to him. Sorry I do not have names. The Lufthansa crew on the way over to Frankfurt worked nearly nonstop, this crew hardly worked. Not impressed at all. By the way, I never write reviews."
Cons: "The worst experience ever paid $466 each for our flight. Our seats were changed for whatever reason to the last row, we sat in back of plane it was very uncomfortable and we could not relax. Out of airlines control was a sick screaming toddler for 2 hrs of this flight in front of us."
Pros: "Flight times were accurate."
Cons: "As soon as we arrived to the airport, checking in was the biggest hassle. We were harassed by a guy working the ticket counter named Guilermo. He was EXTREMELY rude and continued to harass us and followed us after we checked in and we're already at the security check point. It's $25 to check a bag but if you check 2 bags their website says its $35 for both. We were charged $50 to check two bags. Even after Guilermo told both of us that they wouldn't charge us for the second bag to be checked. The guy that checked our bags was also extremely rude and clearly didn't care. Once we started boarding the flight several passengers had to check their bags at the gate because there "wasn't enough room on the plane". Not really sure how this was fair since we had just paid $50 to check two bags and were lied to about it when several people just checked their bags for free. We chose to fly with United because of the good deals they have on flights but after our experience I would MUCH rather pay more money and have a lot better customer service. We had such a horrible experience it almost ruined our first day of our week long trip. I'm. It really sure if it's obvious to the employees of United but traveling for most people is a very special occasion. This occasion happen to be a very special one to us as it was a family vacation and seeing family we haven't seen in years. The poor attitudes and rude demeanor from the United staff is all we could think about even after we reached our destination."
Pros: "My flight was overbooked, and I was in one of the later boarding groups. When I got on the plane, someone else was in my seat, and apparently had been told by the crew to sit there. There were no extra seats visible. Clearly upset, a very nice flight attendant brought me back to the galley and chatted with me (not reacting negatively to my less-than-stellar attitude given the situation) while another went to "handle it." Not sure what magic she worked, but I ended up with a window seat in an exit row with lots of leg room. An unfortunate situation was handled very well and I'm really appreciative!"
Cons: "I couldn't get the WiFi to work and my seat didn't recline (because it was an exit row)."
Pros: "What I like it was very peaceful flight overall the staff was excellent and communicated with everyone very well."
Cons: "I really don't have any dislikes about this flight"
Cons: "The snack food was the worst I've ever had on any flight. It was some kind of Asian-style snack and I almost gagged. Never had a snack on a plane I couldn't eat until now."
Pros: "Safe, On time Flight attendant was brilliant"
Cons: "I specifically said the aisle seat and on both flights United put me on a middle seat and on a window seat. Both flights were late. I almost lost my connection flight. It was so late that I didn't have time to eat or use the bathroom in my layover. As soon as I got into the plane they closed the doing because my first flight was super late. Then on the food service I wanted to buy food and by the time they got to my aisle they didn't have anything ( just the horrible pretzels) I'm super disappointed with United."
Pros: "I liked that they made it to my destination on time."
Cons: "Everything costs money on top of the tickets I purchased. To compete with other airlines they are going to have to start including food, baggage, and entertainment for free especially on international flights."
Cons: "The service was good, but I found a hard object in my chicken dinner like someone lost a molar. I couldn't finish the supper."
