Pros: "seat room"
Pros: "Love the route, and the on-time arrival"
Cons: "No power at the seat"
Pros: "Burbank airport was awesome"
Cons: "More snacks!"
Cons: "The entertainment Wi-Fi didn’t work well"
Cons: "Things would’ve been a lot better if my flight was on time and my bags got to the carousel in a timely manner. Alaska has a 20 minute guarantee. Yeah not so much in this case"
Pros: "Crew was considerate and prompt."
Pros: "The crew was good. The seats were fine. Movies were good."
Cons: "It was chaotic getting to the desk to book a seat. I had to check my carry on luggage as there was no room in the overhead area. Due to delay taking off we we're a half hour late arriving."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth landing."
Cons: "The “Mediterranean tapas” meal is basically a tiny tiny school lunch, minus the comfort of PB&J. Want dried apricots? You get FOUR. All in all not too bad though. The entertainment/WiFi system is limiting- maybe REMIND us to bring headphones? And no WiFi unless you have T-Mobile? Tease."
Pros: "Crew was great! Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was tight. Would’ve liked a little more room"
Cons: "Baggage claim terminal wasn’t announced. Everyone went to the wrong place."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "My husband and I paid for WiFi and it never worked"
Cons: "My seat was broken. It wouldn’t recline, and the headrest wouldn’t slide up. Boarding process was confusing. I was assigned to board with group 3, but they started boarding by letter."
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: "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: "We were never given the seats next to each other that we booked"
Cons: "My daughter is too young to sit alone and we booked the reservation at the same time one booking"
Pros: "Hospitality of the crew."
Cons: "My luggage that was to be loaded in the cargo area of the plane never was put on the plane. No clothes, no shoes, no medications, no gps radio equiptment, and no special fishing equiptment, (as I was on a sportfishing vacation). Really, Really dissappointed."
Pros: "No strict baggage rules, free carry-on, free WiFi and entertainment. Efificient boarding."
Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like."
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."
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: "Quick, easy, clean"
Pros: "Took off on time. landed early, free wi-fi. What more could I want?"
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. Joanne Lewis email@example.com 206-550-0748"
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."
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: "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!"
Missed my connection due to poor weather disrupting AAs entire fleet. Rebooked my flights twice and was still unable to make it home. No offer of hotel compensation despite me being stranded overnight in Houston. Nothing really to do about it- just a bad couple of days to travel. I wish they were a little better at letting us know about delays in good time, as it would have made a difference to my planning.
The food was cold mmm. It is better than not getting anything to eat. The flight crew was very pleasant and friendly. Always serving. I am a big Delta fan. This time American crew was granted at.
The gate crew at Asheville was very friendly and on top of letting passengers know why things were being delayed. The air crew was friendly. The delay experienced through American Airlines (American Eagle) was inconvenient and made for a long day without any sleep. The flight was smooth. However, the seats were obviously in need of new cushions. They were hard and uncomfortable. The aircraft was clean, though.
Pros: "Being a tall guy, I appreciated the extra legroom in first class."
Cons: "The boarding in Burbank was chaotic and caused delays. Resulting in a longer delay to my final destination."
Cons: "Wouldn’t know, couldn’t make it and the rebooking for a new flight was a nightmare"
Cons: "They need to stop selling the flights at full capacity"
Cons: "Crowded and hot just like Miami"
Pros: "Great crew, very efficient"
Pros: "Very accommodating crew as we were traveling with my elderly grandmother."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Smooth price getting boarding pass and we were anytime sit together"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Why do I continue to subject myself to American Airlines and their horrid equipment, late, delayed or cancelled flights? The ABSOLUTE worst carrier in the country. Without question."
Pros: "I feel like there is more leg room in the seats then in other discount airlines! I like the snack and drink, this breaks up the flight a bit. This is nice for me because I don’t like to fly."
Cons: "The staff seemed miserable. No one was nice or even smiled. Just felt like they couldn’t wait for this leg of their day/trip to be over."
Pros: "The boarding process was not complicated and my moved along in an orderly fashion."
Cons: "Make the seats more comfortable! Especially on long fights where the risk of blood clots are higher."
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,"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "No food offered. Premium seating that I paid for was so narrow there was no way I could sit next to the person next to me and not have their elbows on me."
Pros: "The person I sat next to was kind, as was the crew."
Cons: "The seats in economy are too close to the row in front and too narrow. You can barely move. Its claustrophobic, even for a person not prone to it. I had to upgrade my seat to avoid this as I was in those horrid seats on the trip over. Crew from the late arriving flight should have announced the connecting flight delay well before landing at DFW. The flight should have been held for 20 minutes, as it appeared that the majority of the passengers affected were able to clear customs and arrive at the gate in time."
Cons: "As usual the small plane and bare bones flight service makes for a horrible flight 3 hours late 4th flight on American that has had insane schedule problems"
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Meaals and good timing"
Cons: "Lack of information on buying alcohol in airport"
Cons: "Taxied for two hours, then returned for fuel and discovered an engine problem. Had to change aircraft. No food or entertainment system."
Cons: "Getting canned and moved to a flight that is five hours later"
Pros: "The only positive thing to be said for the flight was that the seat was not uncomfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work during entire flight; crew (stewards) lied to passengers on the ground that it would work after takeoff, only admitting after we were in the air that they had been told by the technicians it would not work at all. Crew did not respond to call lights when pressed (in First Class), nor did they know how to operate the power system."
Pros: "Ability to upgrade to first class"
Cons: "Security taking forever"
Pros: "my seat assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"
Pros: "We got upgraded...Happy New Year to us!!! Service was excellent...landing was one of the smoothest we have ever had! Nice quiet flight with not too many people on board! I will use American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Not over crowded and friendly crew."
Pros: "Paid extra for more legroom"
Cons: "No Free WiFi"
Cons: "Airline valet checked luggage, deplaned us then had us wait as carry-on luggage was handed off one by one"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Pros: "Uneventful and on time"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff"
Cons: "More non dairy food obtions"
Cons: "Missed first connecting flight because American Airlines wouldn't allow me to check in online due to having a toddler in my party. Had to pay for next day transfer. $240 a person. Will never use American Airlines again!"
Cons: "Maintenance problems, late departures, uncomfortable airlines"
Cons: "Flights out of RDU to Philly were late. AA will not let you get on another flight going to the same destination if your checked luggage has been committed to particular flight beforehand. You have to fly with your luggage."
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: "Slept through the entire flight, ground crew got me from gate to seat ASAP."
Cons: "Everything was good, so no problems to report here!"
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: "Missed my connection in London due to a computer malfunction that took over an hour to remedy. In getting to London, I was automatically rebooked, but with a flight that got me in 10 hours later than expected. I asked customer service about alternate flights, with or without connections, that might get me in earlier, but was given a quite curt, "that is not possible," and turned away. Even if that was the case, which seems unlikely given the multiple other flights arriving in Luxembourg from European airports earlier in the day, it was not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "My TV wasn't working and it was the same for a couple of others. They managed to get the others moved stright away but they kept telling me they would reboot it and sometimes it was slow starting up. They rebooted twice and after 2hours 30mins into the 8 hour flight they accepted that it wasn't going to work and they finally asked another passenger would they swap with us. They said that all TV were checked on the ground between flights but this was obviously not the case."
Pros: "Baggage drop agent in Oakland excellent Great A319 w power outlets Thanks"
Pros: "Snack and beverage provided. Good service, comfortable seats, ample cabin and overhead space."
Cons: "Slightly delayed both ways. Lost around 2 hours total time, but not substantial for me."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The check in computer crashed before it started. Only manual check in available and the staff wasn't trained to handle it. It delayed the flight over 2 hours and then the process screw up someone visas and they had to be removed with their luggage. But you know this already! You need to implement a better secondary system and have your employees be trained to use it."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food horrible especially for first class and entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Pilot did a great job getting here, but gate was blocked by a fuel truck and sat on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes! Pilot has now asked for a tug to pull us in."
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Kept asking passengers pretty boarding to check luggage due to limited space...yet after we boarded there was at least 1 completely empty overhead compartment."
Cons: "Ran a little late."
Cons: "They ran out of food people would actually like to purchase and all that was left was cruddy Mac and cheese, pizza and truly awful sushi made by someone who has both never tried but inexorably hates it."
Cons: "Connection time in Vancouver is horrible and international transfer process is awful Especially with small children"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive with me."
Cons: "Plane way too cramped. Made me check my bag but it clearly would have fit and there was lots of room overhead. Still waiting for my bag more than half hour after my flight. Very unhappy. Totally unacceptable."
Cons: "Comfortable and good seats"
Pros: "Great service, great food, nice new plane. Flight attendants super attentive to allergies."
Cons: "- flight departed late but been told there would be no problem catching short connection - connection plane was there and still connected - could not board : tickets were cancelled while we were in the air in previous flight! - next flight left actually ... 1 min early. We could have boarded - been told it was because of luggages that could not connect. Lie. - clear case of over booking - disguised so Air Canada wouldn't pay for it"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and capable."
Cons: "My first and last flight on the CRJ 9. It's much less comfortable than a prop plane, for a 90 minute+ flight."
Pros: "My wife had injured her knee before our trip and was having difficulty walking. Air Canada provided wheelchair assistance every part of our airport transfers between Atlanta and Japan. Thanks so much !"
Pros: "Not much. Crew was good but that is about it."
Cons: "Tight spaces packed in like sardines. FAA seriously needs to look at how these airlines pack us into these seats. Can barely sit in the set, no room to stretch legs, tray table hits my stomach, and I don't even have a big belly. When the guy in front reclines, cannot even get out of my seat. Chaotic boarding process without any order or instructions or announcements, poor food and entertainment."
Pros: "Cleanliness and accessibility to my nearest airport at the time I need it."
Cons: "Children are crying through the flights."
Cons: "For business class the accommodation was appalling. The seat would not even recline more than a couple of inches, let alone lay flat which is what one is paying for. The touch screen entertainment did not work. The flight arrived too late to make connections - again. The boarding agent at the gate in Los Angeles was one of the rudest and most arrogant men I have ever encountered. I complained to the plane's Captain about him, as he was going through. All the business class passengers around me were commenting on it. One was even filming his egregious behaviour for Facebook. He alone was enough to put one off Air Canada ."
Pros: "Gate customer service (Jaslon) at Newark Airport was great. When my flight from Newark to Toronto was late and I was going to miss my connection, Jaslon was very helpful by rebooking me on a better flight and having my bags transferred immediately. Second checked bag fee was reasonable,"
Cons: "You pay for everything - snacks, headphones, food. Slow counter service at check-in at Newark"
Pros: "I thought the crew was nice, and I was glad to have an easy flight."
Cons: "I thought it was a bit odd to not be given a seat assignment until after zones 1, 2, and 3 had been boarded. It seemed like the other passengers and myself who needed assignments had been forgotten about."
Cons: "flight was cancelled after being loaded and pulled away from the terminal. waited for over 2 hours on the tarp and then they said the crew had run out of time and could not fly. They took us off of the plane and did not rebook us. It took everyone over two hours to get rebooked for the next day or even two days later. They almost had a revolt on their hand since they did not have a representative talk to us until the passengers started yelling at them. Very poor customer service. Just horrible."
Cons: "Several hours late due to repairs, despite the plane originating from Air Canada's hub. Seems they should have had a spare available to not delay us the several hours that they did. As I live 2 hours from the airport, it was not until I got there to check in that I was aware of the delay."
Pros: "friendly flight attendants good entertainment options"
Cons: "it was fine. I was pleasantly surprised after the first leg of my trip from Seattle to Toronto, where the staff were much less professional."
Cons: "no entertainment and poor seat selection"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, one of the ladies was rude and I did not get window, even though I requested with enough time."
Pros: "$800 reimbursement 1st class"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight by 2 passengers."
Cons: "Why not board front to rear. It would save mega aisle clog during boarding!"
Cons: "There was a 90min delay on all flights going to toronto due to construction in toronto yet air canada (knowing this) boarded everyone on time anyway and made us sit on the runway for over an hour. They could have left us in the lounge until they were ready. Parents with babies do not appreciate such thoughtlessness. But hey, as far as air canada was concerned, they left the gate on time."
Pros: "We didnt crash"
Cons: "We didn't crash"
Pros: "I was able to be on standby for an earlier flight to Newark."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours, however the boarding was efficient and the crew were very friendly."
Pros: "The crew at the airport terminal were very helpful."
Pros: "Boarding pass are checked 4 times before taking off"
Cons: "Long line at the airport only 2 stations open"
Pros: "very pleasant"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Pros: "There was an excellent agent during boarding. I didn't catch his name but he was a tall dark skin gentlemen and he went over and beyond to assit me. His kindness left a lasting impression on me. I only wish I had his name, because he deserves to be noticed for his excellent service."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "There was 3 hour delay on the first flight, that made me miss my connecting flight then they booked another flight which was not a direct flight but with an additional stop. I reached Toronto 7 hours later than my original landing time"
Cons: "Air Canada has to know that generally, the flight from Toronto to LA would be bumpy. Even if they did not know, the weather forecast can tell them that. Problem is that they always SELL the food first, before serving the customers the much needed drinks for hydration. That is a pathetic service attitude. "We will sell first, and only if time left, we will serve free drinks." That stinks!! I even saw them some kids, who wanted to get to their seat (from bathroom trip), sending to wait near bathroom because the food cart they were selling from was in the way. This kind of customer hostility to kids is unforeseen."
Cons: "The flight was considerably delayed, so that we missed our connection, the airport personnel at Newark sent us all over the place attempting to pass off the problem onto somebody else- even encouraging passengers to go to Montreal and "figure it out from there." Bags were taken off the plane and then put back on...the subsequent flight (the next day) was also delayed, and required half he plane to sprint through Montreal to their connections. It was not worth it. Especially considering I tried to call Air Canada for some of my refund and the number they gave me was a fax line."
Cons: "put on stand by, while this was a non required stop over to Brussels."
Pros: "The helpdesk was helpful when I got a hold of someone. The compensation was decent."
Cons: "I bought my round trip ticket from DC to Paris via Toronto since March 2016. But the flight back from Toronto to DC was overbooked and I got bumped off the flight. The agents were severely understaffed and had no information about the situation. Also, when I finally got the flight back to DC, my luggage was lost."
Pros: "There was a decent selection of in flight movies"
Cons: "-the aux plug for the headphones wasn't working properly. Resulting in me having to hold the headphones in place the entire flight -the first time the attendant went by with the food selections for purchase she walked right past me and went on to run out of food by the time I finally got her attention. -I had to ask the people behind me several times to please stop their child from kicking the back of my seat. Although the attendant made eye contact me one of the times she made no intervention on my behalf. - my return flight was in short: neglectful and arduous. I probably wouldn't recommend Air Canada after a flight like that."
Pros: "Comfort of seats and spaciousness of the plane"
Cons: "Agent off loaded me and only me from return flight with zero reason. Second flight I was put on was delayed 2 hours. Sat for 5 hours in the airport for a 1 hour domestic flight. Customer service was terrible. Emailed Air Canada 4 days ago and have yet to recover any response."
Pros: "Initially I chose Air Canada because the price was better than United. But the hassle was not worth it."
Cons: "Rouge plane was dirty. Flight attendants gave incorrect information regarding immigration forms that caused us problems after landing."
Pros: "Got to spread out onto two seats since flight was not crowded."
Cons: "Food options. No inflight seat with entertainment screen."
Cons: "Pushed call button twice as I could not get entertainment system in business class to work, never came"
Cons: "Air Canada is not really an airline, I suspect they are trying to go bankrupt or some wire stuff because there is no way they are trying to be a real airline with what they offer, worst airline in the world."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of leg room and the increased humidity level in the economy section of the 787."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for an hour, 25 minutes at the gate and 35 minutes in line for a slot to take off. They ran out of the chicken entree before they got to us, and the snack (a "cajun wrap") left a terrible after taste that took and handful of arctic mints over several hours to get rid of."
Pros: "was forced to spend the night in Toronto because Air Canada didn't seem to know that there would be a huge crowd at the airport that evening. I was told as I exited my flight that I would not make the connecting flight and I had to spend the night in Toronto. I will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "No real issues...nice direct flight...on time too! Good movie selection."
Cons: "Connection of headphones was not good...monophonic sound"
Cons: "Never made the flight"
Pros: "On time, good service and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "Food options limited and quality very poor."
Pros: "Trenton was outstanding. Very professional"
Pros: "Awesome and funny service."
Pros: "Excellent gate crew"
Cons: "Pretty uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."
Pros: "gate agent helped to get me on a flight at LAX just made it an extra 10 hours"
Cons: "not cancel my flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible, as if the seats were made for children."
Cons: "Delayed departure; cramped seat; minimal amenities"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot and attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Rules are rules. Yet, at least ten people brought on more than the designated one carry-on bag and purse. Flight attendants shouldn't have to deal with those poorly mannered passengers who think they deserve special treatment. Otherwise, it was all fine."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Horrible uncomfortable plane"
Cons: "Would not give us hotel vouchet"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Getting in so late the rental car offices were closed"
Pros: "Quick and easy to board."
Pros: "Flat bed was narrow but comfortable. Attendants plentiful & attentive."
Cons: "I'm not sure what makes this business class special "Polaris" . Unlike planes I often take to Asia, there was no privacy and especially no room to put "stuff" without putting seat up, unbuckling, etc. I realize that I should have paid attention to the type of plane. Boarding was chaotic; could not distinguish my boarding line. PA system unusually bad; could not hear or understand any of Capt's announcements."
Pros: "Aircraft was newer"
Cons: "A no-frills airline"
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: "6 HOUR DELAY I THINK THAT SAYS IT ALL"
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."
Pros: "Everything was fine on the first leg."
Cons: "Delays, very long delays. Not a fault of anyone but United had delays."
Cons: "We missed a connection due to it being an international flight with several checkpoints of customs and immigration. No one from United seemed to care that we missed the connection. We won't fly United again."
Pros: "Very comfortable and the staff was great!"
Pros: "Flight attendant was fine"
Cons: "Was told upon checking in that they did not have s seat for me. United airlines informed me that third party websites do not guarantee seats. You must book directly on united. They over book the flight and several passengers were not allowed on the flight"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Went with another airline. Waited 1:20 to get assistance"
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."
Cons: "HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM UNITED AND THE THIRD PARTY CONSOLIDATOR. Awful. Awful. Awful."
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."
Cons: "No notification that the flight was cancelled until I got to the airport. Not sure then why I share my phone number and email"
Cons: "Loud girls behind me talking."
Pros: "Super sweet flight crew and great entertainment."
Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."
Pros: "Crew was able to get most of those delayed onto the incomming flight which was also delayed."
Cons: "The fact that united has no spare planes in case of a delay. Not cool."
Pros: "Good flight attendants."
Pros: "I waited for 4 hours on the second left of my flight. That was unpleasant but I appreciate Kayak sending continuous updates"
Cons: "read above"
Cons: "Four hour equipment delay on departure One hour equipment delay in return I never want to fly connecting again but it was the only way to get from Newark to Burbank."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super."
Cons: "Nothing really. I would like it if pilots would be more interactive. Tell passengers landmarks and cities/states they pass over. Seems no one does that."
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: "Other than all my flights were delayed"
Cons: "Flights delayed"
Cons: "Plane Was delayed For 3 hours. Will never fly United. Alaska is way better"
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: "Nothing. The flight was cancelled two days ahead of time and no reason was given. I was never contacted by United to rebook."
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: "The staff were extremely nice"
