Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "Enjoyed big leather seats in older planes. More comfortable."
Pros: "Quick, easy, clean"
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: "The flight attendants were very helpful and the seats were moderately comfortable."

Pros: "all was great"
Cons: "The seats had plenty of leg room but seemed incredibly narrow. I was definitely rubbing my neighbors and I am a petite lady."
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: "Crew was helpful and friendly."

On the first flight we we ended up in the very last row next to a lavatory and on the second flight we had seats where the backs did not recline also. Go figure!"
Pros: "I fly with Alaska Airlines a few times a year to visit my best friend and her family in Northern WA and I find that they are always on time (unless waiting on a plane to come in) and they're efficient to get people seated and ready for takeoff by the posted flight time. Always professional!"
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: "Alaska is efficient and friendly . The plane was new and clean. The plane left SF on time and landed lightly --perfect flying ."
Cons: "Because of the wind in Palm Springs, the flight crew wasn't able to do a real drink service. I look forward to a glass of cheap Alaska red wine on my Friday afternoon flights!"
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."
Cons: "If United can serve more than orange juice or water, so can you"

Pros: "New airplane,friendly crew,professional services"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "Didn't realize I had to bring my own plug in to watch the in flight entertainment. Otherwise the flight was fine."
Pros: "I was able to board early due to my premium status on American. The aircraft, a Boeing 737 was relatively new."
Cons: "The flight was over half an hour late, and we were told the airline was servicing the cabin while we waited at the gate to board. When I got on board, I was the first to arrive at my row and there was so much trash on the floor, in the seats, and in the seat pockets in front of me that I gathered what I could carry to the restroom to dispose of it before sitting down. There was still tons left. When I alerted the flight attendant, she just shrugged."
Pros: "Crew,flight duration quick service"
Cons: "Loud children"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "Flight left on time, arrived early. Great service en route."
Cons: "Very slow check in out front. Not enough agents at first; line got very long and they were having problems with their computers to check people in."
Cons: "@AlaskaAir I am completely disappointed and appalled at the lack of customer service I received tonight. It seems that someone who was manning your desks decided that they did not want to help us (and other passengers in the same situation) and sent my husband and I on a wild goose chase throughout SFOAfter speaking to many airport personnel, as well as Alaska Airlines baggage employees who were completely unhelpful and boarder line rude, we returned to the unmanned kiosk where we were no longer able to print our passes, nor were we able to speak to a representative. We were forced to stand there as our plane boarded and eventually took off. It is ridiculous that your airline would not staff their counters with someone while there are still flights departing. We are now embarking on a quite lengthy road trip which has cost"
Cons: "No charging station at my seat No media device given to watch movies or TV Flight crew was WELL seasoned, was not personable and didn't seem to care much about service (even in first class) Aircraft was OLD The food "choice" was dried out chicken thighs and some ravioli First Class Flight attendant spent more time in the first class restroom than the passengers did"
Pros: "The whole processes was basically very smooth."

Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "While my experience was excellent, I must acknowledge that the practice of charging significantly more for some seats is outrageous. I was happy with the (free) seats I had."
Cons: "3+ hour flight with no TV/ entertainment"
Pros: "I was able to choose a seat in Cabin with more leg room and complimentary alcoholic beverage."
Cons: "It was late going to Chicago and late returning to NYC. There were no crackers. I don't like pretzels. The ONLY reason I flew American is because my company paid for it. I absolutely hate LaGuardia. It has a bad spirit."
Cons: "Getting canned and moved to a flight that is five hours later"
Cons: "Surprised to see they charge $50 carry on fees at the gate."
Pros: "On flight crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was nice and so was the American Airlines customer service office in Phoenix"
Cons: "I didn’t like the male and female check in people in Portland. They sat there and watched me for an hour not telling me I could not use cash to check in my luggage at the gate after they told me it was double the amount to check it in at the gate. The sight u use on the boarding pass u download on the phone is not clear. It says baggage fee +$25.00. I thought it was 25.00 till the women in Phoenix showed me the + sign. She said “it is confusing”. I did not buy the ticket because it was for an unexpected funeral of my sister. My other sister did so I didn’t see all the stuff from Travelocity. After telling me it would be $50.00 the check in male and female at the gate saw me sitting there for an hour and never told me I couldn’t pay cash. By the time it was boarding time if a nice woman did not offer to use her credit card and I have her the $50 cash I would have missed my flight. The manager at the gate in Portland even told me I would miss my flight. The two check in staff at the gate said “well we didn’t know you only had cash” and they weren’t even concerned that I was going to miss my flight. It would of been nice of them to tell me this when I sat there for an hour after they told me They we’re doubling the price. I would of had time to go back through security, only pay $25.00 and the other nice passenger would have not had to use her credit card. Very rude and poor service especially after a sad occasion of burying your sister!"
Pros: "AA had fantastic service, no complaints"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and boarding was a pain. Not sure why you wouldn’t want to board from the back to front. Weather grounded us at our loading airport so we were stuck with the option of staying the flight or going in the lobby."
Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"
Pros: "Crew was polite and respectful"
Cons: "Communication was irregular, a meal was promised that was never delivered, delay on tarmac handled poorly"
Pros: "It was a night flight and I need to be next to the window to sleep uninterrupted. The website was not letting me book a seat, of any kind. I called and was told that a window seat was $80 - I declined. I asked at the airport, after being assigned a middle seat and was told that no window seats were available. The plane was only 1/4 - 1/3 full and there were dozens, if not more, window seats available. I have flown US Air and then American for years. I won't use them again even though I understand they are trying to make money. I am trying to save mine and don't appreciate being lied to."
Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "The food was fabulous!"

Pros: "The onboard entertainment has definitely improved. Nice to see how organize is the boarding process when compare to other local airlines."
Cons: "I was seating in the front of the plane were the seating should be better. The seat reclined minimum. Also, had the had luck to travel next to an amazing mother who was traveling with two small kinds and a dog. Brave woman but nasty flight for me. Need to improve the meals on the international flights. Too mediocre."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 5 hours last minute, making my layover 17 hours long. The delay caused my car rental place to give away my reservation so I had to wait an additional 2.5 hours to get a rental car. The primary reason for my travel was a wedding and although I made the actual wedding, I missed most of the pre-wedding activities that I had rsvped for. The seats were really uncomfortable, particularly the lack of low back support. I was very sore after the flight and was unable to sleep despite having been awake for over 24 hours prior to the flight. We were finally given meal tickets but was unable to use as everything closed at 10pm."
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly"
Cons: "No wifi or chargers or seatback entertainment"
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."

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"
Pros: "Faux Leather seats on the flight Good overhead compartment space Decent legroom"
Cons: "The booking agent poorly scheduled our connecting flight in Charlotte as by the time we hit the ground, our next flight was boarding and the landing gate was way across the airport from the connecting gate. Needless to say we missed our flight and had to wait for 7-8 hours to fly out."
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Pros: "Pretty much on time departure and arrival. Comfortable, larger aircraft than usual."
Cons: "n/s as only a 40 minute flight"
Cons: "The landing gate in Palm Springs."
Pros: "Had window seat. Seat to close tho bulkhead wall. Shoulder literally resting on the side of wall the whole flight."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "A little bumpy"
Pros: "Slept very well in business. Great crew!"
Pros: "Airline upgrades were great!"
Pros: "Individual TV. Price."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Flight attendants were equally bad. Only one attendant was helpful and accommodating. They act like they don't like being there. Need to take lessons from Emirites Airlines. Or Swiss Air. Or even Ethiopian Airlines. Just smile. Be genuinely nice. This bunch were grumpy, conceded, and unfriendy."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room no entertainment so I dozed."
Cons: "People stuffing oversized bags in overhead."
Cons: "My flight was changed from Charlotte to Dallas-Orlando"
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "All good things"
Pros: "6 HOUR DELAY I THINK THAT SAYS IT ALL"
Pros: "Courteous crew, choice of snacks, on time"
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."
Pros: "I was able to get to my destination safely"
Pros: "All aspects - crew were pleasant, flight was on time and smooth, meal was reasonable"
Pros: "Very comfortable and the staff was great!"
Pros: "Will never use united."
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"
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: "Delayed because of baggage not being ready for flight."
Pros: "Stewardess were very nice"
Cons: "Tried to change flight to different day cost was rediculus united wanted an additional amount equal to the cost of the whole round trip not very helpful Were TSA approved going but not returning At 84 did not appreciate this. Will not fly United again if I have a choise"
Cons: "Ron working the check in desk at United gate B67 to B79 was extremely rude, condescending and combative. I was appealed & offended by him and the way he spoke to me. I also observed his poor treatment of other passengers I will not longer use United Airlines for my flight needs"
Cons: "Had to wait at gate for a while before disembarking."
Pros: "Updates from pilots Airbourne"
Cons: "The gate told us it was a late arriving aircraft but that flight wasn't late.. it was a negative swap and there was no way for the inbound crew and aircraft to be on time.. just tell the truth.. feet were freezing"
Cons: "Short flight everything was fine"
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: "Finally a United flight that left on time and arrived on time!"
Cons: "The entire United experience left me wanting something, anything from this airline. Unfortunately the only thing they will get from me is no more chances for service recovery. They failed miserably!"
Pros: "Very good! Very nice and friendly employees!"
Pros: "Attended to us constantly"
Cons: "Everything was Great!"
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."
Cons: "Tiny seat"
Pros: "We boarded in record time and took off in record time. The landing was so smooth I hardly noticed it. Perfection!"
Cons: "Anything I didn't like is typical plane stuff - small cramped seats, one cup of soda instead of the entire can, etc. Nothing unusual!"
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"
Cons: "they didn't serve us, not even water. Also they tried to land once and they could not and then they took us back and retried. Not an explanation or anything.. I believe that the pilots didn't know what they were doing.... I fly frequently but this is one of the worst experience, plus have in mind that you go to Palm Springs to enjoy and relax not to die.., If you have turbulence least announce the passengers and prepare them."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the plane seating and room was comfortable, no complaints."

Cons: "I asked a staff member a question about my checked luggage and I felt like he blew me off. No big deal though."
Pros: "Good, easy"
Pros: "Delayed 3 hours. Rerouted to the wrong airport. But worst of all was the seats. Awful. Don't recline, no padding. Worst ever."
Cons: "Seats in economy are always short on the knees. Paying $25 for checked bag is way out of line. Free is better, but $10 max would be more than enough since fuel charges have gone way down for all air lines."
Cons: "Had to go through the boarding process twice due to molding in the passenger area that needed to be glued. Perhaps an inspection could have been made prior to boarding?"
Cons: "Very long delay while we were on the plane waiting for take off and there was no reason. We sat in the plane for ove an hour."
Cons: "recommend not including food and entertainment in the survey when not offered OR add a N/A button to choose."
Cons: "Over a hour late leaving San Francisco"
