Airline reviews

Pros: "The Alaska Airlines check in was not simple via a kiosk and had to go see an attendant. She did not add Pre-check to our 4 tickets and we missed not seeing it on the ticket. Had to wait in the regular line. So long the waot."
Cons: "Alaska Airline attendant should ask as a protocol and lesson learned to tell them to have it added."

Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "Wider seats"

Pros: "Good service, comfortable airline, no delays."

Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable. The boarding process took a while."

Pros: "Great crew and seats were pretty comfortable."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Blanket provided"

Pros: "Crew! And comfortable seats"

Cons: "Alaskan did away with the food & drinks on demand, part of which made virgin so special. Also internet did not work and documentation of it was wrong anyway, not good for work commuters. Flight was over a halfhour late taking off, however displays said ontime and sfo staff ignored the queue waiting to ask questions"

Pros: "Attitude of the crew"

Cons: "They lost my luggage and caught us at Newark airport for around 2 hours and did not pay back. They gave us a cheap coupon with limited duration. Plus, they broke my luggage and never paid back."

Pros: "We arrive safe"
Cons: "We arrive safeThe staff spend a good part of the time chopping it up with themselves in the back and just before they landed they rushed through the aisle to pick up trash and they were so rude"

Cons: "The flight boarded on time but sat at gate for over 1/2 hr, before taking off, then arrived at LAX and waited another 15 or so minutes to dock at gate. Several people with a connection were very upset and it was an unpleasant experience. Also while up in the air, it took over an hour for seatbelt sign to go offf making it hard to wait for bathroom."

Pros: "Courteous crew, quick boarding and roght time flight"
Cons: "No free snacks for a six jour flight. Restrooms were too small."

Cons: "In the SF airport, your crew accepted me to pay for $25 for putting my suitcase into the plane. But then, she mentioned that the flight was delayed and there was no way that I can made my connection from LA to Indianaplis. So I was given a boarding pass with my suitcase ($25 paid) only to LA. The front desk asked me to try other ways when I arrived LA to see what can be done. When I entered into the gate, your CS changed my flight to UA after I have presented my case. However, I had to pull the suitcase out from Alaska, paid another $25 to United and started the trip all over again. All the while, your crews expected me (an alien from Asia) that I should have known every thing get it through, or to claim my suitcase charges. I am really disappointed for the lack of understanding. To you, it may be something happened so common everyday. To me, I was totally lost to handle this."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "New York airports are always delaying landing and getting to the gate by at least 30 mins. Nothing to do with the airline I assume, but still quite frustrating to do detours and spend extra 30/40 mins in air or taxiing."

Cons: "It was a hour late taking off so that’s always a pain but other wise it was okay."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food/ beverage service was bad."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment and the service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain! Even though flight was delayed and we hovered over LA for 30mins and the pilot had trouble finding a spot to park, i still had a great relaxing snooze!!"

Cons: "Slowest boarding process of my 3 Alaska flights today"

Pros: "All good with Alaska and Virgin America"

Pros: "Free movies, clean seats, friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Baggage crew definitely stole my sunglasses right out of my luggage. I left them in a case in my baggage - they took the glasses left the case. I reported to Alaska, but haven't heard back for a few days."

Pros: "Very quick and easy boarding system. And, very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was booked through Alaska Airlines, but facilitated through Sky West. At SFO, Alaska runs out of terminal 2, but Sky West out of the international terminal. I went through security at terminal 2, only to find out that I needed to leave security, get on the tram and return to the international terminal."

Pros: "First time to Cabo Mexico - this flight was like a party bus! The crowd was bit young and loud but the crew handled them well. Everyone had a good time on the way there!"

Pros: "Professional and friendly staff, clean plan, excellent service"
Cons: "Plane was late"

Pros: "Smooth flight lovely flight attendant"

Pros: "Always the best service"

Pros: "Wine flys free is amazing!!!"

Pros: "On time, friendly staff, clean plane"
Cons: "Slow drink service"

Pros: "I was checking in in a fluster and trying to attach my bag tags. A agent came over and helped me (for some reason I had taken the entire sticky back off ha!) and then he took my bag for me right from the kiosk. I was super impressed"

Cons: "needed more water"

Pros: "They did what their jobs required. They were never rude. If they were they would be talked to. They did what they were suppose to do. What else can I say? It was only an hr flight. I hour flight Jeez!!!"

Pros: "The gate agents and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "When I checked my bag. They had to hand write a slip for the next leg of my flight (Calgary to London). This added about 10 minutes of time. It's 2017, how can it still require paper write up??"

Pros: "On time. Efficient. Clean new plane."
Cons: "Their new 737-900 was stripped-down! No complimentary entertainment system at all! NOTHING. Instead, they expect the passengers to use their own smart phones. The only option is passengers have to give up their private information to GoGo to use the system. Don't do it! To add salt to that wound, customers have to pay to see a film. Don't do it! That experience alone made the flight a dud. All I can say is, thank heavens it was a short flight."

Cons: "If United can serve more than orange juice or water, so can you"

Pros: "The pilot introduced himself and kept us updated on the weather and turbulent."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "no complains"

Cons: "Lack of help with information on transfer between terminals at Seattle/Tacoma"

Cons: "crew delay alaska has not compensated yet please help"

Cons: "Boarding was more of a free-for-all than other airlines. Everyone was boarded on the plane only 5 minutes after boarding was scheduled to begin."

Pros: "Nice"
Cons: "Good one"

Pros: "It was everything nice from the take off to the landing"

Pros: "It was a small flight, fast and there were only a few people on the flight with me. I sat with a row to myself."

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The fact that you cram people into small spaces. It's awful that you treat coach so terribly. Someone needs to design a more comfortable experience."

Pros: "TSA staff was great. Security was a breeze. The first plane had USB and standard outlets on every seat. Layover in Seattle was nice."

Pros: "Loved it all. Thanks for helping me get home to Australia when other airlines couldn't."

Pros: "confortable and good service."

Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."

Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that the flight was delayed out of LAX by about 30 minutes due to the flight in-bound being delayed. However, the captain made up most of this time in the air so it ended up being a non-issue."

Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."

Pros: "Everything on time which lead to a stress free flight and travel. Great flight crew and smooth flying. Great communication from the captain. Also wasn't expecting to be fed on the LAX-NYC flight!! Nice touch made me think of how it used to be."
Cons: "Cramped seats."

Pros: "The food that was served was good. The crew was attentive and nice ."
Cons: "Comfort seats didn’t seem like much different than reg seats. Didn’t like the cattle call boarding process at lax ."

Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "What they offer is OK."

Pros: "food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "the flatbed seat is very narrow and not comfortable. The crew took a long time to remove plates after the meal was eaten."

Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"

Pros: "Timing and Service"
Cons: "Space between seats too reduced"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Small plane don't do well with turbulence"

Pros: "The full set of pajamas we received in first class. The food was great! The selection of food and drinks was excellent."
Cons: "Ok, I'm 6'6", so the lie flat bed, while long enough, was a bit narrow, but come on, it's a lie flat bed on a 15 hour flight, with great food and service! Don't fly coach. Spring for the first class flight. You will not be disappointed."

Pros: "They handled a crowded flight very well."

Cons: "My seat choice was ignored on one flight"

Pros: "My flight was on time and I was constantly notified what was going on with my flight"
Cons: "There's not much to do on the flight but oh well"

Pros: "Airline was very accommodating, serving drinks multiple times in the 5 hour flight. Entertainment was packed with great selection of movies and shows, games, etc. Overall satisfied."

Pros: "This flight was very smooth sailing, and I loved the fact I had an option to watch a movie, and the crew were very nice."

Pros: "The flight got us from LAX to SLC"
Cons: "I bought my ticket in October, checked in yesterday and when I got to my gate was told I didn't have an assigned seat!!? This was totally unacceptable, I was told I didn't select a seat on the seat selection screen and that I was now on standby. I specifically remember the seat selection screen being extremely misleading and thought that I had selected seats when in fact I didn't according to Delta. Maybe instead of focusing your website on getting customers to upgrade their seats you should focus on getting them a seat first. Secondly make sure tickets can't be purchased unless a seat is assigned first. Who would want to buy standby tickets 3 months in advance? I'm guessing not many people."

Pros: "El vuelo a su hora el avión súper. Moderno súper súper y los precios súper bajos gracias kaya"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed as always, time it was a 2 hour delay. The worse airline I've flown on."

Pros: "FOR A BUSY AIRPORT IT WAS A FRIENDLY SERVICE DAY"
Cons: "NOTHING IT WAS GOOD AND THANK YOU"

Pros: "Smooth, nice flight. Excellence service, they tried to make up for the late pioltes, allowing to broad befriend they arrived."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, because the pilots were late. Not only was it delayed over an hour, but the flight itself was postponed twice because they knew they had a problem with scheduling."

Pros: "Despite efforts of most airlines in America it seems like they can't get it together like the foreign ones. ..I've very recently flown vigrin, garuda, malindo, and Cathay and they are miles above in service and comfort."

Pros: "Pretty good service. Excellent cabin service. Good snacks. Organized announcements at Gate. Constantly updating lateness of flight. The whole Delta staff did great job with very quick turnaround time when plane was at gate. Excellent Starbucks coffee! Was appreciated!"
Cons: "1hour late leaving LAX. Rough flight. Weather not withstanding the landing had people concerned. I've been on a lot of flights-that was probably the roughest/least precise landing I've ever experienced!"

Pros: "I liked that I was able to go to sleep."
Cons: "When boarding I had no sets assignment which I never enjoy. It was 5 minutes to boarding, I still didn't have a ticket and the agent was quite rude when I inquired. In fact, for the majority of the time before and even during boarding he was laughing it up and chatting with ticket agents at a neighboring gate. Then I did board, the ticket was not clear what my boarding group was so I missed out on boarding early. When i get to my seat I have two people completely unwilling to move to let me into my window seat, but are all too eager to tell me to be sure not to hit them. This flight was after a long layover and after a long flight from japan and was a horrible end to an otherwise beautiful trip."

Pros: "Smooth easy flight"
Cons: "I arrived for my layover early, and noticed there was another flight currently boarding for my destination. I asked the boarding attendant if I could just get on this flight rather than waiting 2 1/2 hours for the next one. She said there were open seats on this flight but it would be a $50 fee to switch. This makes NO SENSE! I was standing there with a ticket purchased for the exact same itinerary, ready to board this flight with open seats, and I would have to pay extra? When this switch would open up a seat for the later flight for someone else in the same situation? Just a ridiculous way to charge people extra money for nothing. Very dissapoibted in Delta for this."

Cons: "Poor service. Will never fly with Delta again."

Pros: "Smooth, quiet"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew was okay, as well as the in flight snack"
Cons: "Over one hour delay to begin with and then we were stuck in the airplane for 45 mins waiting to pull into a gate."

Cons: "Couldn't sleep and felt exhausted throughout the flight."

Pros: "The staff was very nice, seats were comfortable and entertainment was nice."
Cons: "Plane was delayed, causing us to miss our connection, but our connection was also delayed so it worked out. Wifi is also quite pricey."

Pros: "Flight attendants provided snacks since there was a delay"
Cons: "There was something wrong with the plane so it was delayed for a while"

Pros: "The separate check in for first class. Early boarding and pre-departure drink."
Cons: "TSA at T6 are inefficient and make it take longer than necessary."

Cons: "Sudden gate change. Seems like it was a little last minute, but the boarding team handled it pretty well."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "On the flight from LAX to MSP, one flight attendant was very nice and gave us extra cookies to make up for her rude coworkers' attitudes."
Cons: "I'm almost 6', and my boyfriend is 6'6". He has had 7 major knee surgeries, and life-threatening blood clots, which left major post-surgery vascular scarring. He gets major swelling, even with his compression sleeve. The up-charge to reserve exit row seats was over $100/person for both flights home. Luckily they were still available when boarding, and the nice desk clerk moved our seats for free. However, the rude flight attendance would not allow my boyfriend to elevate his leg and prop it anywhere, even after I explained his medical condition. Allowing the blood pooling increases his risk for clot formation, and it causes him extreme pain. I spent the majority of the flight massaging his leg, trying to push the blood and fluid back up. His ankle swelled around his compression sleeve, and finally he had to lay in the floor and put his leg up on the seat. The attendants told him "the best thing for you to do is to walk around for 10 minutes per hour." No, the best thing for him to do is elevate his leg and rest, not try to walk around a tiny, cramped plane, and elevate his stress level. Flight attendants need to be more aware and accommodating for these type situations, and exit rows need to be available for people who need them as far as size and medical needs require. It is not ethical to charge extra for handicap accommodations, neither is it ethical to charge extra for size and medical accommodations. These factors are not optional, and should not be billed as a luxury."

Pros: "It was a red eye. Geared fir sleep. Great Crew"

Pros: "Timely"
Cons: "Crew member kept bumping to my arm or part of my body on aisle side while sleeping. Kept me awake and nonapology"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Flight attendant gave wrong order"

Pros: "The crew is always amazing, on time is great as always, efficient process boarding"
Cons: "Old plane - like REALLY old. Hugely uncomfortable, worn out seats. Cluster boarding process where no one observes premium/sky/etc."

Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to miss my cousins wedding."

Pros: "Excellent from curb to curb 5minutes- curb drop off and check in w curbside skycab, one bag and one bike case! 8minutes - thru TSA! Flight comfort, food,drinks, cleanliness - excellent! The time it took to walk to baggage, my bag was in the carousel and my bike case was at the oversize location, 20ft from the carousel. I was there to compete in the XTerra World Championships, you couldn't ask for a better stress free flight and service, Thanks!"

Cons: "Hour and half delay"

Pros: "We were on time!"
Cons: "We didn't get our luggage until an hour later after our flight arrived to the destination,"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "not in range for wifi and the in air tv had a grainy picture the entire time"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very polite and helpful"
Cons: "Flight left almost 20 minutes late and arrived a bit late as well"

Pros: "Everything. !!"

Pros: "Quiet flight. Great landing. Excellent staff on board"

Pros: "The stewardess accidentally spilled a little water on me but she was so nice about it and apologetic that she paid for my drink. Good people skills in bad situations make a huge difference."

Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and took great care of us. The food was surprisingly good and our seats were comfortable. It was worth upgrading to Premium for the extra legroom and other little perks."
Cons: "I really can’t think of a bad part...the customer service at check in was so easy; our checked bags were automatically transferred in Calgary, the crew was very friendly, food was good as was the wine and beer."

Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."

Cons: "Dinner service on the Calgary-London flight started very late and the cabin lights weren’t dimmed for several hours on this night flight."

Cons: "Seats are horrible with westjet"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Rush through US customs going down do to late flight held plane"

Cons: "No beverage service at all and only pretzels offered when I asked if I could have nuts or cookies."

Pros: "Mate"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Pleasant and helpful stewardess. When they found out how stressful our day was with delays and being bumped around they offered us a free drink. Nothing crazy but it was kind of them."
Cons: "When our flights were delayed then changed we were left with no options other then being left with a 19 hr layover in Vancouver and missing the wedding. No apologies or vouchers offered. Air Canada gave $200 for a two hour delay to our friends, we were screwed over and offered nothing. So disappointed. We ended up flying to Vegas and renting a car and driving through the night to be on time. So sad!!"

Cons: "Flight crew was rude"

Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."

Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"

Cons: "Checking in at Airport very slow, I had a terrible experience even thought I spoke to them several times at checking counter. And missed my ride home as a consecuencia of arriving late."

Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."

Pros: "Nice customer service pleasant flight. Fkight attendants are really nice"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "2.5+ hour delay from Calgary to Winnipeg. Unacceptable"

Pros: "The friendly staff."
Cons: "The actual plane. First flight was 737. Second flight Prop plane. Ugh"

Cons: "No free meal, the pizza ordered was terrible. No tv, only iPads for rent."

Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."

Pros: "I just love WestJet"

Pros: "It was nothing I liked about it I asked to move to empty seats they told me it was against the safety rules"

Pros: "Great efficient crew."
Cons: "I miss the free movies..."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."

Pros: "Always friendly and helpful...great to see and experience!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Computers down delayed checkin. Items stolen from checked bags. Flight delayed. Lost bag on a flight with no transfers."

Cons: "Because there was a mechanical problem in Palm Springs and the suitcases in Toronto took forever to come down( mine was the last suitcase to come down ) I missed my connection and had to be put up at a hotel , the kitchen was closed and I had to pay for my breakfast!!!!"

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"

Pros: "Always enjoy traveling with west jet"
Cons: "Access to internet"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"

Pros: "Great crew good service nice movies"
Cons: "Plane had no aux power and needed a third party to start the engines and was delayed 40 mins. Definatly tmi as I was worried something else was going to fail mid air lol."

Pros: "Easy low volume airport palm desert"

Cons: "I am a tall person and the seating is just too darn close with absolutely no leg room for a tall person to fit comfortably in the seat. In fact, I could not even get the tray/table to come down level because my knees were too high and there was not enough distance between myself and the passenger seat in front of me to allow the tray table to come down completely and sit flat."

Pros: "Normal flight"
Cons: "Normal flight"

Pros: "It wasn't full and there was an open seat beside me"

Pros: "Always great crew members!"
Cons: "Power outage in Kamloops, causing a little boarding and seating issues, crew handled it well!"

Pros: "Flight on time. Crew pleasant and polite. Only complaint is being charged extras for baggage. I suffer from a handicap/ injury and as a result do not like to carry luggage on to the flight as it causes me issues. It is frustrating to buy a ticket and always have to pay an added fee when I get there. I would pay more or pick another airline if baggage was included for me."
Cons: "Pay for check baggage. Because of a handicap I prefer to not carry baggage onto the flight. See above."

Pros: "Direct flight and was cost effecient"
Cons: "Gate construction made it hard to find where to go"

Pros: "Crew was great! I've decided on flights over 5 hours, upgrading as much as you can is important."

Pros: "Flew part of the trip on a Mexicana plane and part on a WestJet plane. and service, food and entertainment was far superior on Mexicana than Westjet"

Pros: "Roast beef sandwich was great"
Cons: "Just because the crew is having a bad day they shouldn't take it out on the customer"

Cons: "Did not get TSN for the entire flight, even after we entered Canadian airspace."

Pros: "Flight attendants were humorous"
Cons: "WestJet chose to not delay a connecting flight by 30 minutes after their first leg flight was delayed by just over an hour. This resulted in a 1 hour Calgary layover turning into 11 hours. Instead of arriving in Regina at 1 pm, we got there at Midnight. Missed my only Saturday of visiting with family. No apology from WestJet. Received only $30 in compensation for meals to be divided by My daughter and I. I viewed this to be very cheap on the part of WestJest, with no consideration for the value of our time. Will make a point of avoiding them in future for absolute certain!!!!!!!"

Pros: "I like the staff and services"
Cons: "It's all I like west jet"

Cons: "There was no entertainment. But wifi was available if that is what you consider entertainment."

Pros: "Love it. Friendly and nice. Thank for making this flight rock!"

Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "No place to charge phone on any flights"

Cons: "Crew wasn't that great."

Cons: "Aircraft was out of the 1970's. No USB or entertainment. Wi-fi was bust on the plane. Will avoid American next time when booking."

Pros: "By luck, I had a seat between myself and the other person in my row. It would have been tight, otherwise. Crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The seats on the flight were placed very close together - felt very constricting. Takeoff and landing were a bit rough."

Pros: "Really disappointed as my bags was not check thru.It was rechecked at London and British airway charged me for my baggage. I want to make sure that my way back to Oslo London London San Diego has no charge . It is an international flight and I am allowed 23kg one checked bag ."

Cons: "Damaged one baggage, and delayed arrival of other baggage for 2 days that forced me to cancel a following trip."

Cons: "delayed/not on time"

Cons: "3 boarding doors less than 50 feet apart with departures leaving within 15 min of each other created a difficult to penetrate gaggle."

Pros: "The flights didn't have any delays"
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."

Pros: "The flight was great--good food, good service, good entertainment, on time."
Cons: "They lost our luggage. Four people traveling together arrived in Phnom Penh, but our luggage didn't. It took almost 2 days to be reunited with our luggage."

Pros: "Take-off and landing were smooth."
Cons: "Was not able to track the progress of the flight on the monitors No entertainment Seats do not provide comfortable leg room"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants and nice to kids"
Cons: "Being held inside the plane for a total of 5:30 hours before taking off. Even if there were several concurring factors, it it necessary to find a better procedure in order to avoid keeping passangers inside a plane with the prospect of taking off in the next half hour repeated every half hour! For the ones of us traveling with children it is even worse, and becomes a real nightmare."

Pros: "The duration of the flight, nothing to do with the airline"
Cons: "I was forced to check a bag in when I had flown previously the week before with the same carry on. $50 spent for nothing in my opinion. Per the supervisor over head bin size does not change yet my bag was "too big" like I said I had flown literally 4 days before this trip and had no problems with my bag fitting nor did any of the flight attendants say anything. I am just annoyed. Also I didn't know that I would fly American as it's through Alaska originally, maybe that was my lack of attention to detail. The carry on situation is what irritated me the most. This is also not the first time that I've had a problem with American Air."

Cons: "Poor customer service"

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Connection from SAN to PHX seemed cheaply made."

Pros: "Quick boarding"

AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN.

Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA.

Pros: "The crew was amazing - I fly a lot and they were dialed. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "It seemed like an older plane, I'm over 6 ft and my knees wedged into the seat in front of me before the person decided to recline their chair. Definitely not comfortable for an 8 hour flight. Two more inches would have changed a lot."

She was in the wrong seat but she obviously did not speak English. She was also of the age where she could have had dementia. He said that she was responsible for holding up the plane and the boarding process. On the return flight, I encountered a very rude boarding agent.

Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."

Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Didn't pick up dinner trays, when they passed out breakfast, one lady didn't bother to hand out the napkin or the bottle of water to people, while the lady going down the other aisle did. Greasy pice of cake and no napkin, and a red eye flight and no water? I saw them on the cart, I guess it was just too much work to hand them out!!!"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "this was the first leg to Phx. Offering a seat sale, then cancelling the flight, and arbitrarily rerouting us on a milk run! After calls to AC was able to make more acceptable arrangements, with their code share United. Then United did cancelled our flight the night before and rerouted us. Bottom line, we choose AC because of the seat sale and overall time of our travel. I will likely avoid using AC in the future even if I have to pay more!"

Pros: "Efficient, polite and I enjoyed the entertainment. I always prefer air Canada to domestic airlines."
Cons: "There was no notice given about my seat, but it was locked from reclining so I got squished when the person in front of me did recline. I should have asked to check if the person behind me had one of those anti reclining device clipped on my seat."
