Cons: "Flight attendant Lisa was always rude, there’s no entertainment and the sits are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The two member of the crew were very welcoming and kept a very good sense of professionalism along with adjustments to every passenger. I can consider myself a frequent flyer and it’s relieving to have a crew like that."

Pros: "Toni was amazing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours"

Cons: "It would’ve been nice to have a pillow and blanket since it was an overnight flight."
Cons: "It is a late night/early morning 5 1/2 hour flight. Seats are not as comfortable as some airlines I have flown on such as Delta and Canada Air. No coffee offered early morning before landing which would have been nice"
Pros: "The only enjoyable thing about my flight was the couple sitting next to me."
Cons: "We weren’t served drinks until nearly 2 hours in. They kept making announcements saying “it’s really turbulent and not safe” but I’ve flown a lot and we barely had any turbulence the entire flight and at no point was it unsafe. When it was calm they were hanging out and taking in the back."
Pros: "Lots of legroom. I was in the middle seat and was very comfortable. The staff was excellent. Left on time and arrived early! Bags were delivered by the time we got to the carousel."
Pros: "The plane was warm"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for almost an hour"
Pros: "It is always a joy to fly on Alaska. This is especially pronounced when on a long flight with multiple airlines and then the Alaska segment brings a smile to my face. Even when other airlines do good, Alaska does it better. In a word, employees. Alaskan employees always have a genuine smile and a kind word. Thank you Alaska!"
Pros: "Wonderful service. Thanks for everything.I thing was my best trip."
Cons: "That service in the airplane, the help over the phone. The price and everything. Thanks for everything"

Pros: "Flight was quick and smooth"
Cons: "Airline stewards we're not very attentive"
Pros: "The landing. Didnt feel it."
Cons: "The person you tagged my bag. At 5pm at LAX. I got TSA prechecked but my wife no. For the first time, military says free but she wanted me to pay. Not my first time flying with alaska, but I think about flying next time."
Pros: "Ample leg room (I’m 5’9, could be tight for someone 6” and taller)"
Cons: "No headphones provided for inflight entertainment. I have an iPhone 8 so I only have blue tooth headphones and couldn’t watch the movies displayed."
Pros: "The seat and entertainment"
Cons: "The charge of food I only had cash and my cards did not work so o had to stay hungry all the dam flight"
Pros: "Customer Service Agents and the crew did a great job."
Cons: "I didn’t like having to pay $10 to use a Diggie Playy to watch a movie. Virgin Air had them at no charge."
Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"
Pros: "Flight had a mechanical issue. They kept us informed, provided vouchers for food, and a discount on a future flight. We also were offered a free drink once the flight finally did take off. Crew was terrific."

Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "yes"

Pros: "Decided to pay the fee for a premium seat and received complimentary drinks and snack."
Pros: "Staff was awesome"
Pros: "Traveling with a group of 11 was a challenge and we had a few bumps getting our whole group on the flight due to paperwork issues but the Captain and Crew were so helpful and fun. They took us under their wing and made us all laugh and smile. Great way to start a trip!!"
Cons: "The only thing that I didn’t like about this flight was having to use LAX. I wish I could have caught this flight out of Long Beach!"
Pros: "Always a pleasure when I fly with Alaska. Need to make this a regular thing."
Pros: "I changed my seat so a family could sit together. The seat I took wasn't quite as well located as the one I gave up so the attendant was so generous giving me a free movie and wine!"
Cons: "I liked everything. No complaints"
Pros: "Everything was awesone...the airline crew were helpful and approachable."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "They let my 8 year old son into the cockpit and gave him wings (while we were still on the ground). Very courteous crew."
Pros: "Everything was great. Was on schedule, not a full fligh, no crying babies, and arrived early."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The entire on line checking in process including self bag tag was easy and bag drop was efficient."
Cons: "Initially I had problem with on line checking in. So I called help as was suggested. But the agent was not helpful or resourceful in solving my problem. So I said goodbye and tried it again from beginning and it worked."
Pros: "This was my first flight, and everything went off uneventfully. Thank goodness. The staff was friendly and helpful. The boarding process was smooth, and the seats in coach were comfortable for my XXXL behind! Very enjoyable, bucket list experience."
Pros: "Average flight..."
Cons: "cramped, pay for everything, flight was packed, asked to check carryon's because there wasn't enough room."
Pros: "Awesome"
Cons: "Downloading an app to watch the movies does not work out if you're already in flight bc the wifi connection won't let you access the App Store. A little counter productive!"
Pros: "The service was great, everyone was very friendly!"
Cons: "The change from virgin airlines to Alaska was a bit confusing. I was told conflicting things and was not told that I would have to pic up my checked bag to re-check it. There needs to be more clear instructions on what someone needs to do if they are flying with both airlines."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and efficient. The seats were comfortable, but my wive got squeezed by a large person next to her. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Pros: "New seat configuration is nice. Like the option of a forward cabin upgrade."
Cons: "Flight attendants were goofing around on the PA system and not giving the full briefing. We all know it by heart now, but it was unprofessional and the one gal Mimi you could barely understand. Seemed like they had all been having a night out before coming to work. Not Alaskas usual standard."
Pros: "Direct flight and ease of boarding/unboarding/"
Cons: "On my return flight, the seat did not recline."
Pros: "Just whole trip was great."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "I was seated at the emergency exit, seat 17a. Flight attended tells everyone that were responsible to open the emergency door and we must know english. For some crazy reason she singles me out and says "you understand that sir". My neighbor in seat 17b said "she told you off hahaha". I was embarrassed."
Pros: "• Quick to board plane and take off • Flight arrived sooner than expected • built in plugs so you can charge your computer or phone."
Cons: "They have a 20 minute policy for baggage claim. At the 19 minute mark they sent up about 20 bags and stoped. It took them another 30 minutes to start sending more bags. One of the airline attendants spelt a fruit package on the floor in front of me. The juice from the package got all over my bag below the seat in front of me, getting important military paperwork damaged and she didn't even apologize."
Pros: "I can't really complain. I slept, we got to our destination on time."
Pros: "I think Alaska is trying hard to compete with the big boys, and they do a good job. Seats are comfortable and the entertainment device is really good."
Cons: "Boarded early because of disability, crew unable to assist in placing carry-on in overhead bin (bad back, medical reason or other excuses). Intermittent "rough flight" Lavatory - not flushed when entered, reported to crew. Problem ?"
Pros: "The plane was clean and orderly. The flight there was on time and very efficient. All the crew were very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The AC system is a bit lacking making the plane feel hot after 2 hours."
Pros: "Clean safe comfortable plane seats. friendly staff."
Cons: "A small credit for miles as the Wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "Feeling Covid safe."
Cons: "More attention to those not wearing masks properly ."
Pros: "Most of the crew was great with the exception of curbside check-in in Denver."
Cons: "Curbside needs to stop chasing cash tips and do their jobs. If they focused on that tips would be easy to come by. The curbside attendant that took my bag didn’t even bother to check my id. He asked me my name and asked where my destination was. I told him Cincinnati as a layover then LaGuardia where he said that was wrong. He then proceeded to print a boarding pass that wasn’t mine and load my bag into the conveyor. Not 5 mins go by when I realize what happened I wound up having to go to special services to rectify the situation. Which ultimately consisted of me waiting another hour in LaGuardia to get my bag. Please delta have these curbside handlers actually want to do their job and stop chasing cash tips."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rebooking was poorly handled. Might get bumped from rebooked flight as well."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Why does Delta sell earphones?"
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Pros: "Delta planes are spacious and great!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work well"
Pros: "Airport accessibility"
Cons: "Not getting delayed for 20 minutes on the tarmac"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Pros: "All aspects"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."
Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"
Pros: "Late, crowded, bumpy"
Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."
Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Delta doesn't challenge anyone who attempts to pre-board. It's become somewhat of a joke. The plane was hot (717) with very poor ventilation. Was in 1st class and didn't get beverage service after boarding. Then, the plane sat on a remote taxiway another 30 minutes before takeoff, fully loaded, no A/C, and still no beverage service. Truly miserable hot and sweaty flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "I definitely like the variety of entertainment that was given throughout the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendant was so rude to others including myself. I'm not one to be to needy but when i was about to ask the lady if I can switch seats to the fair back where there was two empty seats she gladly let the other person but not me. She said no that if I wanted to sit back I needed to set with the other person. Our flight was from NYC to PR 5hour long and in between those hours she let a couple sit together on the other empty rows while I was feeling supper sick. Other passengers notice and had told me that they felt sorry for me. I was Embarressed. I was debating on venting on Twitter just yet and also on this review because what difference does it make. What matters the most is that we all got to our destination safely."
Pros: "the chick who worked the counter for the preboard flight counter was really REALLY nice"
Cons: "everyone on my flight was ugly"

I love to be able to connect my own devices to the entertainment system. It works great!

Pros: "crew was nice and friendly and the plane landed earlier than estimated."
Cons: "Middle seat was occupied on my flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew very appreciated!"
Cons: "More legroom"
Pros: "Seat very spacious, was given a extra legroom sit"
Cons: "My screen was not working properly. I didn’t ask for help as I had work to do so I didn’t need it."
Cons: "I was in the aisle seat and kept getting bumped into by the crew as they walked by. I leaned toward the middle seat but still got hit with the cart, people’s bums, their hips, etc. The flight landed at 4am, so I was tired and really wanted to sleep but couldn’t. Also, the AC was not working during the flight. We were all melting until we started descending. Then, while waiting to get off the plane, they turned off the AC completely. Bad move."
Pros: "Room in the seat was humane. Respectable leg room and not squished with fellow travelers. Boarding process orderly."
Cons: "Crew late to second leg of trip. Visibly tired from a long day."
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Cons: "Xx"
Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."
Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."
Pros: "Crew was good for the situation."
Cons: "Made me check a bag saying the overhead bins were full. When we got on the plane there was a huge amount of bin space. Wasted 45 minutes of my time waiting for a bag. Made us sit on the plane for two hours before takeoff even though they knew we were delayed upon boarding."
Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"
Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."
Pros: "Left on time. TSA boarding pass."
Cons: "1. Seats uncomfortable- too close together. Causing the person in the middle to lean on me. 2. The seat in front of me reclined into my space leaving me no room to extract my food tray and to cramped to work on my computer. 3. When buying a ticket no assigned seat. Paid 100.00 extra to select my seat and it didn’t allow me to choose anyway. When I went to select my return seat I had two choices- a middle seat or pay an additional 35.00 for a premium seat. 4. Had to pay 140.00 for luggage with no carry on (70.00 each way) 5. Not going to fly American anymore."
Pros: "Arriving in SFO for Christmas"
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. No heart Healthy food"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Having to check my carryon even though I was in the 12th row. I saw some passengers putting two items in the overhead, which makes it unfair to others."
Cons: "I waited over 45 minutes for luggage to even begin to unload. Absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "Great no complaints"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Packed"
Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Pros: "From the time we got to the counter to boarding and then the flight, we were treated extremely well and with care. We were brought to the front of the line for preboarding. Everyone used our name and smiled as they provided service."
Cons: "The TSA agent was cold and it took a supervisor to ensure our needs were met."
Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"
Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"
Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Food voucher, small consolation for a missed dinner with family!"
Cons: "Delayed due to tire issue, deboarded and were told another plane would be there in 45 minutes, took 3 hours!!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Leg room is getting less and less. I’m 5’10” and couldn’t move my legs."
Pros: "Almost all parts were more than satisfactory as expected"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."
Pros: "Nice new Aircraft. Good service. Reasonable food."
Cons: "Seats have little leg room. Like most....thry pack them in!"
Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."
Pros: "I was treated in a professional fashion"
Cons: "I don't think it is right for the airlines to have any passenger seating in such a tight space."
Pros: "I loved getting up close and personal with others."
Cons: "I didn't like being stuck in a window seat next to two oversized passengers. The person in the isle announced to the middle seat that " I'm giving you notice that I need all of my seat". So the middle seat took up part of my seat, and I feel cheated, because I couldn't use all that I paid for."
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies."
Cons: "I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time."
Pros: "Fast boarding and left gate on time on a holiday"
Cons: "Felt cramped in like cattle"
Pros: "I got home eventually"
Cons: "Wifi way too expensive compared to other airlines"
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."
Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"
Pros: "How dark the flight was to sleep"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew were very apologetic and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable & relaxed."
Cons: "We were delayed due to weather."
Cons: "It was terrible. A missing flight attendant caused an extra delay in departure. Missed connecting flight. American Airlines was not prepared to assist all the stranded travelers. Had to spend night in the airport until I could get on a flight the next day. This was not what I paid for."
Pros: "on time..."
Pros: "COMFORTABLE SEATS EVEN FIR A BIG GUY LIKE ME, FRIENDLY STAFF."
Cons: "LAST RED EYE FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "Not able to connect to airplane WiFi"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Nice crew"
Cons: "The first class flight attendant didn’t smile a single time. We weren’t in first class but it was noticeable"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"
Pros: "Nothing, worst airline ever"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"
Pros: "On time, smooth"
Cons: "Arriving in LAX with no gate to pull up to. When will United fix this decades-long defficiency?"
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours."
Cons: "I can't believe how cramped the seats are. I am under 5 feet tall, and am average weight, and I had no room to spare."
Cons: "The fact that you have to download an app to get any kind of entertainment on United is a bit ridiculous. Plus the food offerings are poor at best."
Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"
Cons: "There was an odor of raw sewage the entire flight. Myself and my son were feeling ill by the time the flight was over."
Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"
Cons: "I was seated next to an obese man who was racist and homophobic, and when I asked the flight attendant if I could move to the empty seat next to me because he was taking up a chunk of my seat, I was told “no” because I am not a united mileage plus member. not so nice! If i pay for an aisle seat I expect to be able to “sit” in the whole seat (and not to mention free from hatred)"

Cons: "They have no customer service."
Pros: "upgrade"
Pros: "Friendly crew and great pilot!"
Cons: "Not enough leg space!"
Cons: "Early morning flight and the crew ran out food before they got to row 12."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None for this flight."
Cons: "No one told us at the gate I was told to go to included on my ticket that it had been changed. I almost missed my flight if I had not asked an assistant at another gate. Then when I got to the correct gate I asked that assistant why there was no announcement of the change. He proceeded to tell me I didn't need to yell at him. That was unprofessional, disrepectful, and bottom line rudeness."
Cons: "Late departing, crew not friendly, having take tiny plane to my destination...man next to me smalled sooo bad I had to turn my face into window to not get sick.not airline fault of course. Landed in Denver at one gate toward end of concourse and second plane s gate not listed anywhere. No board or person knew where. Found it was to be entire other end..pilot mumbled when talking not able understand his fast mumble."
Pros: "Great stewardess"
Cons: "Entirely too hot in the plane"
Pros: "I liked nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I was not able to board the fist flight because i got there one hour before the flight left. I drove 2 hours to catch my second plane and because i did that my entire ticket was cancel forcing me to pay $341.00 to purchase another ticket"
Cons: "Card reader for direct tv didn't work"
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant, flights were on time, no baggage lost, very little turbulence."
Cons: "Flight is delayed wonder why I paid for my luggage and my two small suit case not even 25 kilos each , thought limit is 50?"
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Pros: "Late boarding, ZERO ENTERTAINMENT when you can pay the same price for American that provides television, old uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and attentive"
Pros: "This portion of my journey was fine."
Cons: "I have zero idea why your entertainment set up wont work on android devices. that sucked!"

Cons: "The snacks and no beverage, however I understand the flight was super short."
Cons: "We were delayed"
Pros: "I was nursing a cold and the staff was offering me drinks and blanket."
Cons: "Departure was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "Connecting could hardly be any easier than at DEN--you get off your plane and you turn right or you turn left. No need to find a map of the airport; no need to figure out whether walking or taking the "trA'Am" would be faster; no need to catch a bus or go through security; just one (long) concourse."
Cons: "While connecting at DEN is easy, I wish there were more outlets for recharging my phone on the B concourse (like WN has on the C concourse). I wouldn't have gotten too much of a boost, though, as both of my flights were on time."
Pros: "The size of a first class seat"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not function properly. Seat cushions were worn out. The customer service representative was not able to complete my check in for the international segment."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Have to pay for movies/ shows"
Cons: "Three rolling delays in departure, and we landed the ground crew couldn't find stairs for us to deplane. Waited 30-minutes til we finally used the plane's stairs. Sigh- just makes one wonder about their commitment to getting flight ops right..."
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "2 hour delay and missing my connection"
Pros: "The flight & crew were great"
Cons: "A cookie? C'mon man. I couldn't download the United app & didn't know I had to."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "Space between aeats"
Pros: "I can't really rate the food or entertainment. The flight was a red-eye so I slept. However, I slept well in First Class after upgrading several hours prior to take off."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour 30 minutes late taking off."
Pros: "Routine"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Airline staff was very friendly."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was almost unbearably hot throughout the entire flight. And to give some perspective: I'm someone who is usually always cold on airplanes and typically not a fan of a/c. And I wore shorts & a t-shirt on the plane which I was nervous about doing because like I said, I'm always cold, but thank goodness I did for that flight."
Cons: "Landing delay due to another United planes mechanical issues, terrible follow up customer service. Worst airline out there."
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Flight quick, everything went smooth. Staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "No negative comments."
Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Cons: "N/A"
