Cons: "Seats are so small and there is virtually no leg room. No choice of free snacks—just a cookie. Took forever to disembark—so long that no one from the crew said good-bye to us and the cleaning crew had already begun cleaning the 1st class area. Flight take off/ landing was comfortable. No on board movies. Couldn’t even connect with my own iPad or iPhone. Can’t believe there are airplanes without screens on the back of seats. Just an okay flight."
Pros: "On board staff was great. Flight was great."
Cons: "I bought tickets with the understanding a normal carry on was ok. When I arrived at the gate for our flight we were told Alaska had a new policy that started 6/4 (we were flying on 6/7) that only allowed a much smaller size carry-on. If suitcases didn’t fit the new smaller size rules one had to pay $25 and check it. We have three people flying round trip - that would add $150 to our total. I shopped carefully for low fares. Many people on the flight had to pay at the gate. Not cool Alaska."
Pros: "Very efficient the entire way through. No hiccups, smooth sailing from Burbank to Portland."
Cons: "When I was assigned a seat, I had to find out myself. Wasn't informed. Requested for coffee on the flight and, although there was turbulence that got in the way, they never checked back with me if I wanted coffee. Small notes, but would have made the trip excellent."
Pros: "Great conversation with a fellow passenger, food and drinks were enjoyable for the short flight, and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "No one sat in the middle seat! Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Waiting to board"
Pros: "The staff is always super friendly, and with an hour and a half on the plane before we left one stewardess gave me free pringles (that I was going to pay for) because our 2 year old was “hangry”. I appreciate the gesture to make our day a little easier."
Cons: "I didn’t not enjoy sitting on the plane at the gate for an hour and a half. I wish we could or deplaned (or had the option to), with a 2 year old we needed to entertain him that much longer."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early, the staff was warm and friendly, and it was an easy flight."
Pros: "Enjoyed big leather seats in older planes. More comfortable."
Cons: "Not really Alaska's fault but delayed at the gate due to lot of extra flights taking off. Would have been nice to wait in terminal rather than on plane."
Pros: "Free stuff. Close to on time"
Pros: "No strict baggage rules, free carry-on, free WiFi and entertainment. Efificient boarding."
Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "They oversold my flight and I had to take an hour long cab ride to another airport and go through security a second time. I arrived at my destination 2 hours later than I expected with my first flight. How do you over sell a flight?!"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Managed to board quickly and leave early!"
Cons: "Upgraded to an exit seat. Got the leg room, didn't get the shoulder room. Ended up flying the whole time with my shoulders pulled inward and left aching. I'll be avoiding 737's when I can moving forward."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and was a bit cramped."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "A flight was scheduled at the same time from Seattle to both Burbank and Lax. I made a dumb error but would have appreciated some accommodation instead of being charged a $125 change fee."
Pros: "More room in the pay-more section AND free drinks"
Cons: "Having to pay more to sit a few rows ahead of Coach class. Ridiculous! We're going to the same place!"
Pros: "I always fly with Alaska Airlines when I need to go to LA. Fantastic flight attendants and good services."
Cons: "But on my last flight with them, it was delayed for more than an hour and a half, which was longer than the time I flew back to SJC from Burbank. That mixed up my schedule for the whole day."
Pros: "Alaska crew and free refreshment."
Cons: "That you allowed me to choose seats together so I could sit with my daughter and then that all got thrown out the window and we had to sit apart departing and arriving. I bought these seats 5 months in advance on a barely half full plane. It's not right."
Pros: "Quick, easy, clean"
Pros: "The fight attendnts were extremely kind and helpful!"
Pros: "Seriously just above my expectation to the point of being pleasant."
Cons: "The mountain of children that boarded. Can't fault an airline for that!"
Pros: "The staff were great and helpful."
Cons: "I am a small woman but your seats are getting smaller and leg room is less. This leads me to believe that the "people" actually running this airline have little interest for those of us who have to travel in coach? Making money is the most important thing to these people who will always travel in private jets or first class. Congratulations to all. You are winning.

Pros: "Crew was nice and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding method."
Pros: "I liked the cheese platter."
Cons: "Unable to connect to the internet. Flight was delayed. No legroom."
Cons: "Crew was trying to be funny but it fell a little flat. Seats were small and cramped, no place for luggage overhead. Poor selection of beverages."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is superb from the boarding to getting inside the plane. Ground crew staff is amazing"
Pros: "The flight arrived early. The crew are pleasant and helpful. I've always liked Alaska and their NW partners ... not at all like the experiences that have been in social media of late."
Cons: ""If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." The airline would never be our destination, but Alaska is a very good way to get there."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule. Great flight attendants."
Cons: "Not full capacity"
Pros: "Friendly personnel, seating not so cramped"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and the seats were moderately comfortable."
Cons: "Even though i booked a month and a half in advanced, i got stuck in a middle seat. The seats are tight and even if you want to pay for food, there aren't many options. I paid 18 for internet that was worse than AOL dial up in 1994."
Pros: "all was great"
Pros: "Comfort, space"
Cons: "Delayed flight, which would have been okay, except the staff made it sound like we would still land on time and we didn't. I would rather the message be consistent rather than confuse passengers about landing time."
Pros: "The service was great. Smooth take-off and landing. Comfortable and spacious seating."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "It was a long trip!!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight. I did not have any food or in flight entertainment so I did not rate those areas."
Cons: "Everything was great on this flight. However, on my way down to Burbank I had a 3 hour flight delay for a 50 minute flight from SaJose to Burbank. It nearly caused me to miss my shuttle from Burbank to Anaheim. Still not very happy about that."
Pros: "I liked the airplane itself, especially the roominess of the underseat storage place and the cleanliness of the cabin."
Pros: "The service on Alaska is excellent. I wish all my flights could be on Alaska!"
Cons: "Internet wasn't working. But, waddya gonna do? Probably not their fault."
Pros: "Awesome flight attendants! I really like that you guys announce when we've hit cruising altitude and that the Pilots give us an idea about how the flight is going to go; bumpy, smooth, when/if to expect turbulence. Thank you!"
Pros: "Economy is economy, so there's nothing to complain about :)"
Pros: "Alaska is my first choice between Burbank and Seattle but I go all the way thru to Bellingham and the trip between Seattle and Bellingham costs more than the first leg so I generally take a bus to Bellingham from Seattle. Wishing that last leg could become more affordable."
Cons: "Taking the bus from Seattle to Bellingham but the price differential is equal to another flight to Los Angeles so Seattle so I can't justify the cost."
Pros: "Wonderful crew. Kind and friendly. I liked being able to board from the rear of the plane in Burbank."
Cons: "They ran out of food and there was a mechanical problem that delayed our take off for 45 minutes."
Pros: "I asked for a half cup of decaf and it was almost half - that was fine. Seltzer water was a good option. Flight was smooth even with some turbulence. On time."
Cons: "No gluten free complimentary snack option...like gf pretzels. Thankfully I brought snacks."
Pros: "New airplane,friendly crew,professional services"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Being on time with everything."
Cons: "We PAID $30/each to check 2 bags, both ways, so $120 total. Then at the gate, BOTH WAYS, Delta Gate Reps allowed people to check bags for FREE, & pick up at bag claim, just like WE PAID TO DO. NO MORE DELTA FOR US!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "We didn’t get offered a snack or drink."
Pros: "Flight attendant coughed in my face twice without covering her mouth while I was seated and she was passing out drinks and snacks"
Pros: "Nobody was amazing. First Class Crew didn’t really care and there were only 6 of us up there."
Cons: "I was offered one during. They didn’t have spicy Bloody Mary mix. Tired to pass off a drink with plain tomato juice which was horrible. When my wife sent it back they didn’t offer her anything else."
Cons: "Every thing was good"
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."
Pros: "Excellent flight - smooth, comfortable seats (exit row with lots of leg room), in-flight entertainment was great, snacks and drinks served when I needed. Got to Cincinnati earlier than expected. Couldn't have gone better really."
Cons: "I will say the flight to Orlando including an upcharge of $100 for a bag that was 10lbs overweight. I was INCREDIBLY frustrated at the crazy price. I understand fees would apply to overweight bags but $100???? Kind of ridiculous"
Pros: "Crew very efficient. Greeted us with a smile. Movies sere good but hard to hear."
Cons: "Tried to get comfort seats but sold out way ahead. Long trip for not much leg room."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! We had rough weather for the entire flight, and they handled everything great"
Pros: "Yes, everything was comfortable and the individual screens with current movies kept the kids occupied with minimal interruptions!"
Cons: "Honestly, while it would always be nice to have a little more leg room. I would like to fly a little more conveniently though as the back of the legs near the knees always gets pressure and cause swelling. Some form of foot rest with a stand might alleviate some of the pressure and ankle swelling."
Cons: "Plane too small to have any on board entertainment"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My husband and I could not fit in the seats without our shoulders being on top of each other. My shoulder was in the aisle way. I am 5’8 and my knees were up againstthe seat in front of me. Our flight from CVG to DFW had none of these problems."
Pros: "WiFi on board."
Pros: "Delra was very accommodating to get us on a later flight today due to a medical emergency the previous day. Thank you Delta, especially for your understanding."
Pros: "Cincinnati airport was clean and efficient"
Cons: "MCO airport gate was a mess and did not have easy access to charge phones."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."
Cons: "This was my most uncomfortable flight ever. I am 94 years old and the seat was so cramped and small that the entire 3 hours were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Uneventful and on time"
Cons: "The seats did not recline/lean back. Especially on an overnight flight I was hoping to lean back a little to sleep."
Pros: "The service was excellent from boarding to inflight operations everyone seemed happy and made a honest attempt to be helpful and create an enjoyable experience for me and my Travel Partner."
Cons: "Plane was late coming in and my departure time was 30 minutes off schedule."
Pros: "Never got ticket or email or booking number. Called my bank they said charge still pending. I asked if they could cancel. Bank said yes. Told them to cancel and rebooked throught Delta website. Got eticet. But charge was not cancelled. At airport I had 2 tickets. Working with bank. Today gate agent gave me 1st ticket number. Used Kayak and delt never had this issue. Email not changed or misspelled."
Cons: "No eticket or booking number recieved."
Pros: "Great pilot.."
Cons: "Jam packed too small and the lady flight attendant was to bossy and not that welcoming, she was more interested in being more of a drill sergeant than the comfort of the passengers"
Pros: "Sky Lounge at SFO and onboard entertainment"
Cons: "It was it little confusing that I booked with AeroMexico but it was really a Delta flight."
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "our connecting flight was delayed 12 hours. The person who checked us in for the flight to Idaho falls checked our baggage for our return flight home, which was an entire week later. So our baggage got sent back to our starting destination and not Idaho falls"
Cons: "The male flight attendant my section was very unpleasant to the elderly passengers in my area and just left me very uneasy about the flight"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Excellent job and keep it up"

Pros: "Flight attendant insisted to take my jacket. She didn’t return led. I forgot jacket in Cincinnati"
Cons: "I need my jacket"
Pros: "Excellent job"
Pros: "Kept on time."
Cons: "The flight attendant was completely rude to me when I was getting a pacifier for my baby out of my luggage during boarding and all of the captains announcements were garbled, rapid and unable to understand."
Pros: "The Flight Personnel was extremely helpful and kind."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "Great experiencing getting on and off the plane"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "No power to charge"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "This was a redeye flight that was very smooth."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat and a male flight attendant kept going up and down the aisle bumping my shoulder. If I were a big person I could understand the bumping. He was wider than the aisle. At last count he bumped me 7 times while I was trying to get some sleep on this 5 hour redeye flight. I was going to confront him on his next trip but finally fell asleep before then."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants"
Pros: "Flight attendant was excellent and pilots did a great job with weather"
Cons: "Agents at the ticketing countet were the rudest i have ever encountered in my years of flying. Had a problem and when i asked for their assistance was given the Delta 800 number and told to call and they walked off. When i called it was a 2 hour wait for an agent. Thank goodness for their app as i was able to.change my flight with the My Delta app. Also they had overbooked the flight and rather than giving assurance to people just told us to wait and "line up orderly"."
Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Lost luggage,, will be delivered to our house"
Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. We had a two hour delay on the ground due to thunderstorms, but the pilot kept us informed and the flight attendants answered any questions and helped with everything. The pilot even walked down the isle asking people if they had any questions."
Cons: "We booked our tickets through American Express over 3 months before the flight. Delta has a new policy that these tickets are not allowed to have certain privileges that tickets purchased on their own site have. Unbeknown to us, one of these is the ability to select your seat. On the ride from CVG to FLL we were assigned seats in the back of the plane, but at least we were next to each other. On the way back, we were not assigned a seat at all. We arrived to the airport almost 4 hours before the flight and were still not assigned a seat and were told we would have to speak to the gate agent. Even we when spoke to the gate agent, they still did not have a seat. It was not until we had already started the boarding process that they called us up and told us that we were going to be sitting 5 rows apart, both in a middle seat."
Pros: "I have not flown Delta in more than 4 years and was pleasently surprised at how good the service was. Check in firendly, Boarding on time or before."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Why no service in first class??? Cost cutting measure?"
Cons: "Lady at the gate barely paid any attention to the line. I had to ask her whether or now I can proceed"
Pros: "Great crew, very efficient"
Cons: "Crew only came by once for drinks, other flights they have come by two or three times. At the end of flight they said they were coming down to collect trash but never did."
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food was terrible, no options, Boarding was disorganized and not in sync with what was on the screen."
Cons: "very cramped very old plane with no wifi. UPGRADE YOUR FLEET!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Plane was clean."
Cons: "There was crowding at the gate.. the staff was rude, sitting on the tarmac over an hour the plane was stuffy and no beverages were offered, no one was knowledgeable regarding if connecting flights would be missed,"
Cons: "Gate change and delay in boarding. Delayed landing and made connecting flight difficult"
Cons: "The gate attendant was very hard to understand and so I couldn’t hear what she was saying."
Cons: "Seats could have been better and inflight entertainement missing"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in arrival to Chicago, so we were delayed in departure."
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times and then again upon landing at destination."
Cons: "Boarded the flight before the pilot had been brought over to JFK from LGA, we sat on the jetway waiting for him to arrive for 45 minutes without the air on."
Cons: "Getting canned and moved to a flight that is five hours later"
Pros: "Crew and food were great."
Cons: "Delay of the flight for over 3 hours."
Pros: "I liked that we were given cookies with our drinks that was a nice touch. I also enjoyed that it was a very quick flight from Dallas to Cincinnati. Shout out to the crew members, they work really hard to help us feel comfortable."
Cons: "The sound of the turbo engine in the beginning made my head feel really dizzy, but the buzzing went away after a while. Other than that, I think that the tiny planes should still have some sort of entertainment, even if it's just a single movie playing for all to watch."
Cons: "Qantas would not let me upgrade at 24 hours into Business Class. They wanted me to buy a whole new ticket. All other international flights I take allow me to pay for an upgrade within 24 hours of the flight for around $2000."
Cons: "American completely missed the mark. AA did not successfully change our reservation when the initial leg of our trip was delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue, which caused us to miss your connection in Chicago. Since American partners with Alaskan Airlines, American should have changed my reservations with regards to Alaska Airlines, but they failed to do that. I stood at the Alaskan Airlines counter as the plane left the gate with our empty seats because there was not a ticket. American Airlines did not change a reservation successfully and so although we had boarding passes with our names and seats and the flight number, the plane left without us. I was stranded and Seattle airport at midnight with a child and an infant with one diaper and one bottle left and it was a terrible experience with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying American they cannot get it together when problems happen with delays."
Pros: "I usually fly Air France but AA was terrific. Tasty food, pleasant crew, even the toilets were nicely maintained during the 9 hours flight. The only thing that AF does better is provide a full array of printed matter before boarding."
Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "For international flight that plane was way to tight. It was like being stuffed in a can for 11 hours. I will try to not fly international with American again."
Cons: "Airline valet checked luggage, deplaned us then had us wait as carry-on luggage was handed off one by one"
Pros: "Movie's were good"
Cons: "American Airlines sucks at pretty much everything. The only redeeming feature, if there was one, was the staff were decent once on the plane."
Pros: "The flight was quick once we took off!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the long wait for the flight. It was delayed about 3 times, which put us back about 2 hours. T"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time, good entertainment and food selections."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "seating too small."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Pros: "The boarding process was easy and the seats were extra comfortable"
Pros: "convenience of Burbank airport"
Cons: "staff at check-in couldn't get my TSA pre-check printed on my ticket, got picked out to be patted down in regular line"
Cons: "Was disappointed to learn after buying a British airways ticket that we were only on American Airlines flights. The seats were very uncomfortable and we did not get personal screens which seems uncommon for an international flight."
Pros: "Very attentive staff. They kept the energy up the whole 8 hour flight. I had a great seat assigment."
Cons: "Chairs were a bit uncomfortable, but that's almost all airlines for me because I am tall."
Pros: "They were able to arrange for a seat for my daughter who was technically a lap child. The crew were courteous and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Cons: "When the flight was on time, we learned it was overbooked. Agents stated that if people would not willingly accept their offer to fly at a later time random people would be denied boarding. This was a stressful element as there was no other flight that could make me arrive on time. Plus, threatening to deny boarding to paying customers for airline related overbooking does not seem like a fair or good business practice. Then there were mechanical issue with the plane. After waiting over an hour for repairs they realized they needed a new air craft. This further delayed the flight. Not only was the flight extremely delayed at this pint but throughout the waiting time we were given very little information and were constantly told they couldn't give us an approximate time of departure. This was extremely rude and makes the experience of dealing with a delay even worse. I would suggest giving us more information about what is happening. Saying we don't know when the flight will leave is just unacceptable. To make matters even worse after we were finally boarded we had to wait an additional 40 minutes sitting inside the plane while they boarded refreshments! I know there are delays in flights but this same thing happened to my flight on my way to Paris and it caused me to miss my international connection and had to be re-routed."
Pros: "The friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and leaving Dallas but we arrived on time. And the plane is very narrow. Two ladies with hips sitting next to each other can be uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight was late. More than doubled my layover time"
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Cons: "Too cold."
Cons: "I reached the Lima airport an hour before domestic flight from Lima to Cusco. The lady in charge told me the gate was closed. I told her it was an hour before and i had valid tickets and she was not ready to listen to anything. Horrible service ! Who closes gates to a flight an hour before ?"
Cons: "The flight out of Dallas was delayed. We hustled to our last gate and the person was incredibly rude about last call a d is just arriving to the gate..."
Pros: "Landing at Logan and getting off American airlines"
Cons: "We arrived at St Stomas airport 85 minutes profile to our flights departure. The female manager, Latoya, at the desk was overly rude and completely out of line the way she was speaking to guests. Apparently American Airlines requests 90 minutes before departure to check you in, however their website does say they will try to accomadate customers that have arrived late. This employee refused 24 people access to the flight that we had booked and paid for. She related that she could put everyone on standby for the next and final flight out of Saint Thomas and standby for multiple connecting flights from Miami to many different parts of the country. This is because American Airlines over books their flights on purpose and has no problem leaving people stranded at an airport. Another employee related that it was easily accomplished to confirm is for the flight as we would have plenty of time prior to boarding since the aircraft had yet to arrive from its original location. American Airlines would not speak to any of the paid customers and would not look into other flights to see if there were other options to get customers home. When we boarded the plane there were still 4 customers that American Airlines stranded at the airport with no more flights out of the airport that day. This was an absolute disgrace and it was disgusting to see how the American Airlines staff were treating people. Their companies customer service has nothing to say other then sorry. I will never fly American Airlines again and now know why so many other people also feel this way."
Pros: "The ginger ale."
Cons: "This was my return trip with more delays due to maintenance issues of the aircraft. 10/17/16 flight 1585 was the outgoing flight delayed five hours on my departing trip. I waited at the baggage carousel 15 minutes for my bag after over an hour delay due to switching aircrafts. With a flight arriving this late in the evening with the low volume of bags checked (due to checked luggage charges), this should not be the case. Five minutes to gulp down ginger ale."
Pros: "The gentleman at the departure desk was first rate. Polite and accommodating he was just what you would expect from an airline. Especially American Airlines. The crew was the same and I was happy to have decided to use AA."
Cons: "The departure was delayed approximately an hour."
Cons: "Our flight attendant was brusque, not very nice, and couldn't understand her on the announcements"
Pros: "It was easy checking in and getting boarding pass online. OMG"
Cons: "OMG. Horrible experience. The 8:20 am flight didn't leave 'til noon. There were several changes. We were moved to different gates FIVE TIMES!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were curtious, educated, and attentive."
Cons: "Wish the flight would've been more comfortable but we were in a smaller aircraft so I understood. Also boarding was late due to no flight attendant working the stand in Burbank for standbys until takeoff. I think had the flight attendant done so 15-20 minutes before regular boarding time, it would've gone smoother"
Cons: "Layover was over an hour."
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
Pros: "Seat 7 A on this type of aircraft - and United's configuration - had the most leg room and space, esp. when the seat next to you is empty. The flight crew was friendly and great!"
Cons: "Boarding gates/ area in Denver airport for these small aircraft was almost as bad as a bus station! Crowded and most cramped/ uncomfortable. Denver United staff at customer service center was most unhelpful, unsympathetic and dismissive about the fact that in spite of a flight delay that completely their fault (no weather delay), which made me miss the memorial service for my friend's daughter - my main purpose for visiting Cincinnati - they refused to even give me a patient hearing much less consider my request to try and put me on a different flight!"
Cons: "The plane was so old that it just seemed like it should be retired. My flight was also delayed 45 minutes. They made passengers get off the plane because of a weight restriction it was absurd that my luggage took 40 minutes to come off the plane"
Pros: "I really can't complain about the flight. Great service and on time"
Cons: "The only unfortunate thing was there were no TVs which was a bummer"
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "All good things"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I was traveling alone with an infant and since the flight wasn't full, the ticketing agent moved seats around and gave me an entire row! It was so nice to have the extra space with all my things and to get up freely when needing to change my sons diaper. There was also a changing table in the bathroom which was much needed."
Cons: "The Overnight flight I had was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Too uncomfortable to even sleep at all. The seating is so tight, I could barely move my legs when the seat in front of me was reclined (and I am tiny!) I landed after my connecting flight was already boarded, causing an employee from the airline to announce my name over the intercom on the plane and tell the passengers to "clear a lane for me." I ran with my suitcase over my head, bumping into people and making it to my next gate...where I was told there was ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM for my carry on...which was also, very tiny. I specifically did not want to check my bag because I needed to immediately hop off the plane to make it to work on time. Another customer was VERY upset about having to check his bag and was pulled aside. I finally was told I needed to check my bag at the gate to get on. So i did. As I entered the plane, about half of it was COMPLETELY empty with PLENTY of room. I was floored. About 10 minutes later, the very angry man happily entered with his carry on and stored it easily in the overhead bin. My frustration was at a peak. But I said nothing. When I arrived to Newark, I rushed to baggage claim and guess what? After 30 minutes of waiting, my bag never showed up. I had to check in with information and finally found it. But this caused to me to be late for work. I have usually had a great experience with United. But this experience has changed my mind completely and am very upset."
Cons: "Flight cancelled and no alternative to deal with cancelled flight"
Pros: "The best time to fly a particular airline is right after they've been in the news with bad publicity. Every single personnel was attentive and cordial."
Cons: "It was a smaller plane and very full. The seats are packed so tightly together, you dare not sneeze."
Cons: "Upgraded to first class the trip to was great the return was terrible even the first class seating was old and uncomfortable then my bag was not at my final location (direct flight) was told it wouldn't scan!? Same bag used numerous times then I was told I'd have it the next day by noon call at 2 pm and it says it's on its way them receive a call at 430 pm saying he just left the airport wtf?! Just over all very bad service and didn't get a damn thing for my troubles."
Pros: "Everything was fine on the first leg."
Cons: "Delays, very long delays. Not a fault of anyone but United had delays."
Pros: "The terminal was well supplied. I was worried because the line for security was so long, but it was automated and fully staffed - it was so seamless!"
Pros: "Great crew. We happened to be able to land 30 mins early. Never had that happen before!"
Cons: "Transfer from my international flight caused me to go through security again...."
Pros: "Very friendly staff! Hello's and goodbye's and asked if anyone needed anything several times"
Pros: "fast smooth safe trip"
Cons: "They ran out of food, didn't get any snacks, which were pretzels, I would prefer peanuts like in the old days."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on board crew was nice and helpful. Flight attendant noticed I came on with a cane and offered to have a wheelchair ride available in the SF airport. Reminding me that it was a large airport. I declined, but she encouraged me to try it and I agreed. She was concerned and very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was a small plane and we had to disembark on the tarmac. There were two attendants with wheelchairs but they didn't have my name so I walked on. The flight attendant called to me and said to wait. One of the attendants came up with a wheelchair and said he would take me. Unfortunately, a steep ramp had to be used to get into the airport building. He asked another worker to help him and all the way up the ramp I had to listen to comments about "good thing they had eaten their Wheaties" and "they were getting a good workout." I know that I am not a small person, but these ongoing comments were rude and insulting. When we got into the gate the attendant told me that he didn't have my name on his list and had to call for permission to take me through the airport. I waited and he came back and said he couldn't take me, but if I could wait someone else could come for me. I had waited enough already and suffered their rude comments, so I said no thanks and walked slowly through the airport. This experience has left me with a bad feeling for the airline and its personnel. I believe their staff could use sensitivity training at the very least!"
Cons: "Had to wait at gate for a while before disembarking."
Pros: "On way from Boston to SF, Burbank,,and from Burbank to SF, everything, from service, plane comfortability, seating, was excellent. I was really impressed! But they dropped the ball,the last leg of journey."
Cons: "In SF, I paid wheelchair assistant, who left me at Gate 62, and I told him to come get me if gate changed. He never came back, even after hefty tip, and last minute I had to get to Gate 73, almost fainted, I have leukemia. Though I was able to,board first, the plane was older, smaller, and I was out in an E, middle, seat. Horrible experience."

Pros: "The gate agent was so nice and polite my connecting flight was late but he still allowed me to grab something to drink. He saved my life I had been sick since I left Dallas and needed something as I felt i was maybe dehydrated."
Cons: "My Stewardess on the flight seem despondent. I am for some coffee she replied that they had that in first class but it was crazy cause I just looked thru the pamphlet and it said Now Serving Illy coffee which I love. Then I saw her give another passenger a cup of coffee she looked at me with an attitude like I just made that... Then she brought it. This was crazy because if she wasn't black I would have called her racist then again done black people are racist to they own..SMH"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats on CRJ700. Bottom was fine, but seatback had ZERO padding."

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delay on the way there and the same on the way back. It's so unacceptable"

Pros: "Crew was fine!"
Cons: "We boarded on time but had to wait about 25 extra minutes because luggage went to to wrong gate for wrong plane. My luggage was not there when I arrived and the next day I still don't have it."
Pros: "The stewardess offered me a free refil"
Cons: "No wifi, we sat 15 feet from the gate for 15 min waiting for someone to move the jet bridge. Did they not know we were showing up? Was it a surprise? Then I had to wait 30 more minutes for my luggage to arrive."
Cons: "t was delayed without informing me i stay in airport 6hours"
Pros: "It was clean and the stewardesses were nice."
Cons: "I curbside checked my bag, and when I got to Cincinnati, it never got off the plane. I had to ask several times for them to go back into the plane and look again. They finally did and found it. But it was just a nightmare."
Pros: "What to expect from a short flight. Plain and simple no frills and shitty drinks. It was only 1.5 hours."
Cons: "The seats are too cramped."
Pros: "The worst flight ever. Flight was cancelled, did not receive hotel accommodations, had to sleep in the airport. The crew was terrible. Boarding took a lot longer than normal. Should have chosen a different airline."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 2 hours in ERW United counter workers were terse or rude Inefficient operation Waited 1 hr. 45 minutes for bags to appear at CVG Not flying United again"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and I was given no notification. I was only told once I got to the airport. Luckily the staff member I spoke with at checkin was helpful and put me on another airline, but only after she tried to tell me they'd sent an email and said there were no flights til the following day. I had to explain that I hadnt been notified, had taken off work, had just taken a cab there, was 2 hrs early, and due to the nature of my trip not able to leave the following day. Though she was very helpful I feel it was luck and the nature of using a small airport, not something I can expect. Either way I shouldn't have to explain and insist when it was clearly the airline's mistake. When I later checked my email I actually had never recieved a cancellation email, just an email saying cancellation was possible. Overall another bad experience with United. Flew American Airlines and was happy with the flight."
