Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The person next to me was drunk. The crew was rude."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Packed flight but the crew and ground staff opened to back door to board more easily. Thanks!"
Cons: "I don’t know if this part of your survey or within your purview but I do need to ask or to state my dismay why Alaska or any other airline charge for changing for changing flights to either a earlier or later flight? Why does Alaska and again any other airline charge its customers $30 to check in th"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Better meal, but great overall."
Pros: "Helped with bags and quick to assist"
Pros: "Crew was very relaxed and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was actually very good. It’s just the worst part about any flying experience. But they have a great system."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. I loved that I could charge my phone as well as text while in the air (for free)"
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours with nothing more than a sorry"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The seats are very comfortable. While waiting for the flight at the airport, an employee was offering everyone free snacks and drinks. I will use this airline exclusively in the future."
Cons: "There is nothing bad to say."
Pros: "Boarding was a little slow but the overhead bins were a total win! Love the bigger compartment! The seats were comfy and the flight crew were great! Plenty of complimentary drink choices and delicious snacks that could be purchased. Free in flight wifi was awesome and loved being able to charge my tablet at my seat."
Cons: "Needs wider seats, more help with boarding so it could go smoother and faster. More than one passenger struggled to raise the arm rest."
Pros: "No one in the seat next to me and we got there 20 mins early"
Cons: "Deboarding is always a hassle, nothing really bad"
Pros: "Very professional and helpful especially Ms Sahar in Ontario airport."
Pros: "Friendly and fun"
Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Cramped seats not much room. Kisok to check bags hard to use or did work at all"
Pros: "Couldn’t really think of anything on the flight that stood out."
Cons: "There isn’t anything on this flight that stood out."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant. The cabin attendants were cordial and made sure everyone's needs were met. Air temperature was excellent and luckily we didn't have any turbulence."
Cons: "II was hoping to get a $79 fair to Seattle and had to pay three times that plus baggage fee."
Pros: "They were helpful and polite while boarding and flying. They even give you a complimentary glass of wine or beer on board. All in all my experience was extremely pleasant. They have been much better than my experience last week with united. I would very much recommend Alaska if you have the option."
Pros: "Fast check-in"
Pros: "om time"
Cons: "delay"
Cons: "We were rerouted through Helena, MT and had to rent a car and drive 2 hours to our destination. Due to the limited services into Montana through Alaska Airlines, we would highly consider another airline to accommodate future trips."
Pros: "The ability to get to Montana in 3 1/2 hours. The only reason I fly squashed in a tin can."
Cons: "Being squashed in a tin can and not being able to recline. I never feel my comfort is any kind of a goal by an airline. Only one goal for the airline. Profit. Can't even say safety is a high priority because how the heck can you get out of a plane when there's no space to walk. Passengers need more space not less. But can't do that it'd lower your profit."
Cons: "There was freezing air blowing on my feet!"
Cons: "I liked about everything and I will be useing Alaska air line forever"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No beverage or snack service whatsoever. And when asked about water to the flight attendant, she looked pissed off like she couldn't be bothered. She didn't do anything but eat her own snacks at the back of the plane the whole time! Also this plane has only a chemical toilet. Very poor experience. Plane is also super small."
Cons: "It was late by 2 hours"
Pros: "Friendly, caring crew."
Cons: "Wi-Fi would be nice."
Cons: "Need more fruit or veggie snack option No movie player option"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and quick. The staff was very friendly and engaging. We landed about 15 minutes early which is always appreciated!"
Cons: "Although Ontario only has a few gates for Alaska I still found it strange that they didn't post which gate we would be boarding at until 5 minutes past the scheduled boarding time. Not a big deal but for someone who's not familiar with the airport it could be confusing."
Cons: "Crew at gate never kept us informed . Did not board us at time they had posted and never announced that. I ended up just standing in a line that formed that how I knew to board. Seats were way to small and the attendant hit my arm with beverage cart. She never announced she was coming through and didn't apologize just speed by. Pilot never came oup on speaker to talk with us either"
Pros: "The trip was smooth and worry free"
Cons: "Everything was great. As a matter of fact, I shared in a couple of recent conversations how much I like Alaska."
Pros: "Loved the early arrival, the seamless process."
Pros: "Sat in Premium. Early board because of wheel chair. Lots of room. Smooth flight. Arrived early in Seattle. Ta very nice. Took all way to car in parking lot. Cleanliness."
Cons: "TA forgot one of my bags at security..but I didn't miss until almost to departure gate. Had to check my medicine bottle of cough syrup. What a pain. Put into separate basket. Open & swab. Weird. I'm 75 not a terrorist but I did have pneumonia recently & needed it do would not cough & choke on plane."
Pros: "Caring flight attendants but the admitting attendant was so condescending when asked a question to clarify directions for ticketing bags."
Cons: "No blankets available but the attendant thoughtfully turned up temp without being asked to."
Pros: "Flight on time and the crew were very pleasant and professional."
Pros: "Easy, and comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Very friendly staff."
Pros: "They offer complimentary beer & I think that's cool. I also like the moldable headrest."
Cons: "Seats are smaller than usual economy."
Pros: "Delayed for one day 3 hours waiting time on the phone to reschedule the ticket"
Pros: "The short flight was made especially nice with one flight attendant offering to give a free drink for showing Seattle seahawk pride! Either wearing a jersey or showing a picture with seahawk pride. Very friendly and fun! The views were very beautiful also! Love Alaska airlines and LOVE the seahawks!!"
Cons: "The flight was canceled but I received NO notification WHATSOEVER and was not aware until I got to the airport- which was a 2 hour drive away."
Pros: "perfect"
Cons: "perfect"
Pros: "Kid got wings on first flight! He was thrilled. Free microbrewery beer didn't hurt my feelings ;)"
Cons: "Flight back from Seattle was not pleasant. Flight attendants were just plain crabby, didn't make eye contact or verbally respond to questions. Flight staff can make or break an experience, and these ladies broke it..."
Pros: "Nothing g"
Cons: "Plane was delayed....which is fine... but when we finally landed, we parked on the tarmac in the rain after 1230am . Had to walk to the airport in the rain and wind. Older people were having trouble walking the distance, I actually went ahead to get a wheelchair for an older lady that I didn't know because there was no one on the tarmac to assist. Very horrible experience and I fly Alaska often. Never have I ever exited the plane on the tarmac in pdx and when I complained to an Alaska worker, she told me it was normal. I fly to PDX once a month and have never exited directly on the tarmac. I will definitely look for any other airline to fly instead of Alaska from now on. I will even fly spirit airlines....that is how much I will never fly Alaska again."
Pros: "The flight itself excellent. Great service The only problem was when we landed there was a traffic jam and could not get to the gate for 20 minutes."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food ok"
Pros: "Great customer service very professional look forward to their services in the future"

Pros: "Having outlets and usb plugs available for each seat"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac way to long. Updates from crew weren’t frequent enough."
Pros: "A box was under my feet, not sure what it was. A part of plane! ATL - EZE uncomfortable Crew great in spite of ongoing turbulence!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Great crew, nice plane, awesome entertainment"
Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"
Cons: "The entire time there was a clogged bathroom smell coming in waves. The crew was forgetful of requests. Not a pleasant flight."
Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "Crew could have been better."
Cons: "Connection at Schiphol often tricky;"
Pros: "I liked the crew."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate the women at the boarding counter. She had a very bad attitude and was not approachable."

Pros: "My seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi stopped working halfway"
Cons: "Great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, for unkown reasons."
Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call....my headrest was broken so couldn’t sleep upright but face down....seemed like a plane that large would have more bathrooms"
Cons: "The sits are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice Airbus plane. Due to thunderstorm in Dallas, pilot not able to leave DAL to come to fly the plane in LAX on time. We delayed around 45 minutes. Otherwise, crews were professional and efficient. Excellent movies choices."
Cons: "Boarding announcement in SFO was bad. No one can hear what the agent announced. Random sequence of boarding with confusion. In LAX, we supposed to go to a different terminal by a bus. There is no guidance out of gate to assist passengers that transfer to get on the right gate on the right bus. In AUS, there is not any announcement for luggage belt. An announcement would be helpful to new arrivals to this airport."
Pros: "Cheese plate"
Cons: "TheyCharge me $25 for my bag and I’m at Delta sky Miles older plus the American Express platinum card holder it’s supposed to not be charged"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and hoped to make up for the pilot’s negligence."
Cons: "Boarding was weird with a lack of overhead bins and then the pilot was inconsistent with updates to safety issues. We were delayed by an hour and twenty mins and then had to wait on the tarmac for another plane to leave the gate. Feels like I wasted two hours in limbo."
Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "The waiting area at gate 47 is a joke. Doesn't anyone care that it was filthy and had 10 seats for passenger waiting to board their flight?"
Cons: "Call center tried moving us to later flight that was also delayed by 3 hrs despite telling us it was on time. Fortunately a gate agent moved us back to orig flight"
Pros: "I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!"
Cons: "The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude"
Pros: "Quiet, quick, no issues"
Cons: "Slow boarding. Slowest boarding everr. Maybe not enough overhead space, doesn't make sense how there is not enough overhead space while calling zone 2 passengers."
Pros: "The crew are very friendly, positive and have good sense of humor."
Cons: "The flight got delayed badly"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants on this flight."
Pros: "Once aboard, flight went without a hitch and flight crew was attentive"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment options need to be expanded - I've run out of movies that I want to watch!!!"
Pros: "Excellent service and upgraded snacks in economy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight schedule and the various flight options with regardss to the number of departure and return flights."
Cons: "Delta flight crew complacency and the lack of on board options. I flew first class and the food options were very limited. The crew also seem to have the attitude as though the passengers should be automatically understanding and satisfied. This was mostly on the return flight, an all male crew."
Pros: "The t.v. 's at each seat"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too crowded and seat mate stunk like pot , flight was good because we were 20 minutes late and flight crew very nice"
Pros: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."
Cons: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."
Pros: "Delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."
Pros: "They say us together (we had seats apart -- even though it stated our children are 4 & 1). They gave them wings and each an extra little snack. I felt they were supportive of us."
Cons: "Paying to check our bags!! We were forced to... too much stuff traveling with kids. It sucked to have to pay $50 when Alaska airlines saw we were struggling, they checked our carry one for free to ease our time in the airport!"
Pros: "Comfort and boarding"
Cons: "Delay and food"
Pros: "Flight was on time and left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Should offer headphones for free."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff at Delta was nice and courteous along with being clear for boarding zone instructions. Haven't had a problem yet with Delta! Also the pilot was great at landing so it was not as jerky as some flights I have been on."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Pros: "Excellent trip. Provided ample food snacks and drinks."
Pros: "Flight very smooth.Just after landing,luggage pick up wait too long,almost after one hour later."
Pros: "Individual screen and USB port"
Cons: "No issues that could be controlled I.e. Person in seat in front for mine leaning way ......"
Pros: "Whoa, we flew Coach and had plenty of space! How marvelous to not be packed in; crew and passengers were wonderfully relaxed, and all went well despite turbulence on takeoff and landing. Great daytime flight experience with my toddler grandchild!"
Cons: "Airplane seats and floor area and tray tables were not cleaned properly"
Cons: "Boarding took too long - full plane and double seat booking changed 10 minutes early estimate to 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The delta comport seats were not comfort seats were hardly comfortable and the leg room wasn't worth paying for."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Corn nuts for snack. I'm allergic to corn. I get people want snacks on a flight and you can't make everyone happy. It was ok. I just said no to them."

Crew was nice and accommodating, but someone failed to inspect the plane before the passengers got on and we ended up deplaning and changing planes when this could have been avoided.

No food was offered during a 5 hour flight. Only a snack, which was not served at my row.

Horrible airline: delays and cancellations

Red eye from LAX. The most uncomfortable First Class seats I have ever experienced. No blankets or pillows. One bag of chip-like objects and two beverages for the entire flight. It felt very stingy.

This American Airlines strike is wack. Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the flight crew didn’t show up. Extremely disappointing.

Pros: "The entertainment choice on AA and the in flight wifi are super! The flight attendants were impeccable."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to be on May 26 but I got bumped! The counter at Lax was completely UNDERSTAFFED! At one time the three customer service representatives were stuck with ‘difficult cases’ for over 20 minutes - the line did not move AT ALL! With roughly 75 passengers in line this is unacceptable. I sprang into action and demanded quicker service from the supervisor Seth telling him that people are going to miss their flights. He showed no people skills and decided to be confrontative, inquiring since when I was in line and telling me that I should have come earlier; he did admit that he was understaffed that day but could not do anything about it. After having waiting in line for 1 hour it took the representative too long to check out my Covid Test done by the company AA partnered with - and because of a missing ‘entry registration’ and the use of my married name on the Covid Test instead of my maiden name on my passport ( I had documentation to prove the validity of both names) I stood no chance to rectify any of it as the cut off time for the flight had approached. Instead I was issued a ticket for the next day. No smile, no empathy - I really felt treated like cattle...When I came to the same counter the next day the wait to see a customer service representative was 10 minutes!!!! Which proves my point that they were completely understaffed on May 26! And I had to get a hotel at LAX! On the flight on the 27 May I found the breakfast on board to be very disappointing: no bread, no deli meat and no cheese but yoghurt instead."
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Ok"
Cons: "Several people got on the flight with no face mask on. The flight was completely packed, there was no distancing at all. The boarding process required me to walk past everyone as my chair was in the back and I was last group to board (unlike other airlines that have switched to back to front boarding to reduce people coming in contact with each other) As I walked down the PACKED plane mot people had masks on incorrectly (hanging off one ear, down around their chin, nose out, etc.) some people had no mask at all and the flight attendants did nothing. It seems like they were doing nothing to keep passengers safe from COVID-19 spread. Compared to Delta, American Airlines was terrifying to fly, I find not feel safe at all."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "There are too many announcements on the screen before you can start watching entertainment. It takes about 15 minutes."
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Cons: "Old airplane. Upgraded to Business Class. The video system was not working properly, didn’t show images so it was hard to choose a movie or program. The seats are old fashioned, and so are the pods: not as comfortable a flight as on newer planes."
Pros: "The staff was fantastic"
Cons: "Well my flight got delayed four separate times. I was stuck in LAX for 3 hours. So much that booked another flight with another airline for the following morning. I had to book a hotel nearby LAX just so I could somewhere to sleep for the night. My luggage made it to Chicago safely, but I didn’t at least not with American Airlines. It took them an hour to tell us that they reassigned the pilot to another flight, not only that when it was delayed the first initial time (40 minute delay) about ten minutes before we were supposed to board they tell us that the flight attendant crew is going to take 30 minutes to get to the gate. Not only but those poor airline service staff were completely unaware of all these changes! They had to find out from the passengers what was going on. Honestly I will never fly with American Airlines ever again!!!"
Pros: "I took two connecting flights on American Airlines between Los Angeles and Lisbon period on the website American claims to have charging and or electrical ports in every row. There were none on either flight. To make matters worse, when my tablet and phone batteries both died before the end of the first flight, there was no inflight entertainment, other than 1 ridiculous thing available, on either flight. American has switched to BYOD for entertainment, but forgot to provide a way to charge our own devices. Incredibly stupid."
Cons: "On top of that, one of the flight attendants on the Philadelphia to Lisbon run was a hella snarky guy with a bad attitude all the way through. I would be surprised if I am the first person to complain about him."
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Cons: "There were no TVs for each passenger especially for a 3+ hour long flight which was disappointing."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to poor maintenance that caused issues before take off. Of course safety is important but that is why maintenance should be done routinely and prioritised accordingly. The pilot on the first delayed flight (new airplane) was clueless, his exact words "... our analysis team from midwest needs an hour to figure out whether we can fly or not" This is after we have boarded the flight. Then after about an hour of sitting in the plane, he says "rumor has it that a new plane will be towed in..." What? Why didn't they stop boarding and just get the new plane in. And I don't appreciate the emails saying flight is delayed without giving any reason for it. AA could have certainly done a better job of communicating the issue. Further the flight crew including the pilot were acting like victims. If it were an Asian carrier like Singapore Airlines, the crew would be smiling and providing assitance courteously since they represent the airlines. Not flying them again."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "upgraded to business, which made for a nice ride home."
Cons: "seat and monitor seemed to have minds of their own, but only caused a minor inconvenience I'm frustrated with AA's information on movies, which is questionable and unrealable. For example, the recently released film 'Coco' was listed as PG-13 and not included in the "Disney" category. "Justice League" was listed as R. There are several other examples of misinformation in their movie listings. For parents who use the ratings as one piece of information to guide their children, it would be nice to have correct information when making selections. this problem is not new; it's been this way for over a year now. I hoped that over time they would get it right, but alas, it remains inconsistent at best."
Pros: "I got there safely."
Cons: "I will never fly American Airlines again. From the moment I checked in with the ticket agent to getting off the plane it was a disaster. The ticket agent was rude, hostile, and dismissive. Employees walked through the line at security forcing everyone to consolidate their belongings to one bag. I had a large wallet in my hand and was told I had to step out of line to put it in my backpack. They only allow you one bag to carry on without paying extra. At the time of boarding they announced that the overhead storage was full so even those that paid extra were still forced to check their bags. The plane was dirty, the service was slow, overall just gross. They don’t have WiFi or in flight entertainment so I paid the $20 to purchase the WiFi. It was worthless. I couldn’t stream anything, even music kept stopping to buffer. I understand it will be slower then on ground WiFi, but it was impossible to watch anything and a complete waste of money."
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "AA gate crew checked my bag at the gate, but to the wrong person!! I missed my flight because I had to go find it in baggage claim, take a taxi to another terminal, hoof it across the terminal to TSA pre-check which was 45 people deep and slow as a snail, then run to the gate (which was at the ooooother end I originally entered through). I missed my flight literally by 3 minutes. There was no one at the gate to help me, AA staff kept telling me to go to different places, getting a new flight was INSANE. The whole experience was a pure nightmare."
Pros: "Price, new plane, interactive system"
Pros: "British Airway, as their partner, made everything perfect."
Cons: "Iberia never picks up the phone. American Airlines always says 'No' first, & sticks with their 'No' for about an hour before being willing to think of work 'round solutions. AA online check-in didn't work, There's always a 45+ minute wait by phone to get AA to answer.. Then the customer service line of Airlines @ LAX had 70+ people needing help, but only one person working. So it was an hour long wait, only to be told 'No' you can't fly. Yet once I walked over to British Airways, they found a way to get me to my destination. Airlines just does not have enough employees and doesn't care."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, no problems or hassles. Seat reclined and was reasonably comfortable. Left early, arrived even earlier."
Cons: "Crew was more robotic than human, which is bexoming a trend on AA. No smiles, no acknowledgment, just doing the job of handing out food and picking up trash. No personal touch whatsoever. Food was subpar for an AA flight, especially international. Entertainment system has many defects and problems, for example "search" is useless. Uninspiring and forgettable film choices as well. The knob to control air flow was broken which made it chilly. To finish as I started, a more engaged and pleasant crew could have made all the other things more palpable and acceptable. They were just too cold, like the temperature in the cabin and distant."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."
Pros: "Why would a jet this size wobble all the way across the Atlantic! The pretzels were even stale, and they served a "pizza" that was a stale mini loaf with sauce and a little mozzarella. People were starving when breakfast was served. The thermostat fluctuated from horribly hot to freeing - for 14 hrs. The crew slammed things down on table trays, grumped, were giving harsh orders to patrons rather than gently directing them. These ladies do not enjoy their job. I am done with Delta. We were also an hour late taking off due to a door on a cargo hold not closing. I was embarrassed that our Aussie friends experienced this as their first American flight."
Cons: "Food, attitude of flight attendants, comfort of cabin. Pilot took charge of thermostat issue and kept us informed in a friendly manner regarding the status of our take off and flight progress."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Service"
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"
Pros: "I like the comfortable chairs and screen touch screen in the seat in front of me"
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "The "very" new 777-200 was very comfortable, well-laid out. I usually skip or leave half of the in-flight food served, but this rates as one of the best meals, I've had in an airplane outside of business class. The in-flight entertainment/information service was decent, but perhaps because the plane was still in new condition."
Cons: "On this entire business trip, I booked with other companies, but ended up 5 flights operated by American Airlines. One cancellation, 4 delayed, 3 late arrivals. The last one was the most annoying. I will be avoiding AA in the future. The domestic crews are generally brusque and miserable. The international flight crews were more accommodating and pleasant, but most of them also seemed annoyed at passenger presence. Also, having to pay for a preferred seat on a half-empty airplane is simply unfair. By 24hrs before the flight, AA must have known there were plenty of empty seats."
Pros: "Boarding was a mess - there were no announcements about boarding and the gate agent did nothing to promote order in the gate area. Thank goodness for the new planes on this route - the old planes with the blue "leather" seats were so overdue to be retired. Onboard entertainment was great and every seat had a USB port and AC outlet. Smoothest landing ever, I couldn't even tell when the wheels hit the pavement! It was also the first time I recall a female captain on American - maybe the smooth landing wasn't such a coincidence :)"
Cons: "The worst experience I ever had in thirty years of flying. I missed my flight because even though I got to LAX two hours before the flight, I had to wait on the baggage check for two and a half hours. The attendants were texting and talking and not servicing the passengers. When I told American attendants and supervisors that I was going to miss my flight unless they got me through they were clueless and didn't care about me or any of the passengers. The entire American staff were the most disorganized and careless flight personnel I have ever seen. Them they put me on a standby flight, where I was number eight and five minutes later was number eighteen, so I missed that, too. My wife is one of the top Public Relations people in Los Angeles and we both have tweeted and posted on social media extensively about this horrendous experience. I require a full refund from American Airlines for my airfare, and if I don't receive it from you will take you to court. --Eric Red"
Pros: "New plane with leather like seats and good entertainment system."
Pros: "Punctual!"
Cons: "no entertainment! Nothing. On the flight from Mex City to LAX the bathroom facilities were so limited that some Economy class passengers had to try to use the business class or first class facilities' An FA then came on the intercom and said Economy class must only use their own facilities and this is according to an FAA regulation. THat is a straight out lie. If you eliminate bathrooms from Economy class to squeeze in more seats this problem will persist. American Airlines should be ashamed of itself."
Cons: "They lost 1 of 4 bags."
Pros: "- It was on time"
Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Upgraded from Business to First on a transcend A321. Seats amazing, hard product is just superb on these planes. Crew good but a bit animatronic as always with AA."
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "I could not change the flight with less payment so I missed the flight and booked another one."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It cost me $86 dollars to supposedly upgrade my seat to an exit row with tons of leg room. Granted there was plenty of leg room but the seat was extra narrow to give room for an emergency exit if necessary. I'm not huge but I barely fit in the seat. It was an uncomfortable squeeze which of course got worse as the flight continued. I complained to an attendant that the seat was too small and he had no remedy. If I was a few pounds heavier it would have been impossible. You'd think they would warn a customer of the narrower seat. It's so obvious that it's all about profit for the airlines which sickens me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "ORD -> LAX We sat on the Tarmac for 45 mins without any communication. We ended up landing on time, but I was connecting to an international flight, so this naturally caused me and my companion a great deal of unnecessary stress. LAX -> ORD I arrived at the gate prior to the 10 minute before take off deadline and the gate attendant said I couldn't board and walked away. I sat and waited several minutes until a gate attendant returned where they proceeded to call stand by passengers. I was checked in and present, but not allowed to board. So I approached a different attendant, explained and he looked surprised that I wasn't boarded. He then without asking me any questions or checking with me typed on his computer and then handed me a new boarding pass for a new flight 1:25 later. I boarded that plane and sat for over an hour. The pilot had no updates for us other than the delay was a maintenance issue, saying repeatedly that he would check again in 15 mins. Finally after wasting more time we had to deplane and wait for a new one. Ultimately I was not allowed to board my original flight without explanation, which then caused me to have over 3:30 in delays. This is all after I had arrived from an international destination, which made the ordeal very miserable. This type of awful experience is a pattern with American Air - rarely are my flights on time and I've had more cancellations with American than any competitor airline. Anything but A full refund would not be acceptable. Thank you, Randi"
Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely. That's about the only good thing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 times. The airline was not very helpful during times of delay - normally airlines would offer food or drink vouchers - none of that. The flight was delayed for a total of 4 hours. When I arrived into LAX, I had requested if I could go on an earlier flight if there was space (rather than catching the later one - an hour later). They asked me to pay $200 to change it. Fair enough if you want to charge me for a change of ticket - but then the plane that I was supposed to go on got delayed for 3 hours and you don't offer any sort of compensation - thats really not something I expect from American Airlines"

All ok. Just departure by 45 min. Also one hr delay on original trip.

Flight delayed 1.5 hours.

My family in Arizona didn’t have a printer to print our return flight tickets, so I took a screenshot of our tickets on my phone. Apparently, when you go through security they enlarge the QR code, which makes it blurry, so it can’t be scanned. We had to go back to the check in desk and pay $5 for each ticket to be printed. Lesson learned, print out all flight tickets before you leave.

Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!

Pros: "No seat not comfortable."
Cons: "No legroom."
Cons: "Give complimentary water"
Cons: "Was surprised to see 0 social distancing in the plane. It was packed and not everyone had masks. Should be mandatory."
Pros: "The gate crew was absolutely wonderful. They made the delay bearable. The were very entertaining and friendly."
Cons: "The delay. Couldn’t be helped, but still annoying."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. The aisle was nice and wide which makes walking to seats easier"
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats"
Pros: "This flight itself met all expectations and I am very pleased with Allegiant."
Cons: "Communication & Technology @ check-in. I was never able to check in using the Allegiant phone app. Reason never communicated. Unable to check in online. Finally after a long hold over the phone I reached an agent who explained the system was updating. Bad set up. Could have been communicated!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind, attentive and caring. There was a special needs girl in the same row as me that was by herself and they were always making sure she was okay and comfortable as well as the rest of the plane."
Pros: "It was good quality for the price."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, spacious aisles"
Cons: "The seats do not recline and are not very comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary"
Cons: "Flight itself was great. Seats are very narrow"
Pros: "Crew food. Seat small little leg room."
Cons: "Plane on time. More leg room."
Cons: "Everything went quickly and smoothly. Great flight; even the weather was less turbulent than expected."
Pros: "On time, clean plane."
Cons: "Everything was fine. Thanks!!"
Pros: "Price and timeliness"
Cons: "Airline broke the stroller we had. That could have gone better."
Pros: "The crew was great. We left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I wish water was free. That is the only thing I don't like. I understand it's a cheap airline so everything cost extra, which is fine. But come on, water should be free."
Pros: "Definitely the price. Boarding process was pretty quick. Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "Left a little late, but still arrived on time, so that was okay. Seats aren't the most comfortable, but that's expected. Was still able to get a little nap in."
Pros: "All wa great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"
Pros: "For exception of price there is nothing I liked about"
Cons: "Uncooperative ground crew App doesn't work if you are not from the US"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "."
Cons: "Late departure without any explanation. TSA really under staffed."
Cons: "Baggage claim very slow"
Cons: "The beer"
Pros: "Flight was ontime and smooth. No issues boarding or debarking."
Cons: "Cheap plastic "mass transit train" style seats. Poor legroom. Borderline exorbitant fees for baggage and carry-on. Also weight on checked luggage was only 40lbs per piece while industry standard is 50lbs. Makes it difficult to share one suitcase between 2 people to save on baggage "fees"."
Cons: "baggage staff was super rude. She told me I am the last passenger on the plane which wasn't true. She made me pay $50 because of little overweight. I could easily redistribute the weight among my bags if she gave me little chance. I was a single mom with two kids (3 months and 3 years old) had to pay a fine which I can't afford. Thanks for giving me the chance to express my feelings."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Cons: "Seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "Direct flight to my Destination"
Cons: "Rental car I paid for on Allegiant website didn't include $50 in airport and sales taxes making it look like the Allegiant rentals were about the same as renting directly from rental car companies. Problem is that Allegiant didn't include taxes in the quote or amount I paid online. Surprise when I got to my destination and was told it would be $50 more. Alamo agent said I wasn't the first person to have that problem. Then on return my bag was damaged and was told I could place a claim at the ticket counter. It would have been helpful to have an agent there or a way to contact an agent. No such luck. After bag charges, poor service and hidden fees Allegiant isn't really a great deal."
Cons: "First flight being cancelled"
Cons: "Was assigned a middle seat. I am a small woman and had absolutely no room."
Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Great price. Direct route. Friendly gate staff and flight crew. On time (actually early) departure and arrival."
Cons: "Flip side of departing early is they closed boarding over 30 minutes before scheduled departure (nearly missed flight)."
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."
Pros: "No frills inexprnsive"
Cons: "No services"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Not even water provided on flight. I miss amenities."
Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"
Cons: "Did not purchase any food and there was no entertainment offered"
Cons: "Worst plane trip. I am a bigger girl, and I could not even buckle my seat belt due to the size of the chair. I have never had this issue on any other plane flight. It was incredibly noisy, and rough ride. I will not travel again."
Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour for "paperwork". Can't be helped by the crew, but an administrative errors are just as bad."
Cons: "Plane was an hour late."
Cons: "I moved my seat when I checked in to sit with a friend and paid about ten bucks for a different seat. I didn't think much of it until I got to my new seat and realized I had paid to sit in a seat that was basically a bench that didn't recline and was right in front of the bathroom so it rattled every time someone flushed. Classy."
Pros: "Fast seating with veteran's seated first."
Cons: "Small seats that don't recline."
Pros: "Flight was on time.. Crew was courteous, friendly, and helpful. Equipment on flight to Bangor from Sanford was a relatively new plane (A320) rather than one of your tired and likely less safe old planes (MD80)."
Cons: "Seat spacing is too tight. You should give up two rows and give everyone an extra inch and a half of leg space. Your customers would be much happier. The food you serve is not appealing. First of all, there is no coffee. Not even on early morning flights. And none of the food is fresh. It is all preserved stuff like crackers, nuts, and cheese spreads. There is no inflight WiFi. I fly Allegiant a lot, and have grown very tired of the sales pitch for your credit card. All I can think of when I hear it is a barker at a carnival. And the card is not the great deal you promote. The 3% you get back for using the credit card to pay for Allegiant fares is entirely offset by the 3% levy yoiu impose for using a credit card. I am better off just continuing to use my debit card. once. I do like your $29 optional payment allowing one to change flights once. Southwest lets yoiu do this without such a fee, but no other airline even makes the option available."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding. Staff all communicated well and were not overly pushy or sales oriented, like some of the other airlines. The baggage classifications were easy to understand."
Cons: "The plane was a bit older, so the leg room was good and the seats were roomier, but the seats weren't particularly comfortable and the landing had less absorption bc of the style/age/design of the plane."

Great price and on time, don’t let the bad behavior customer return, restricted them for life.

Pros: "All"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "We were delayed initially because our jet was given to a different flight which had been delayed due to mechanical problems. Then our incoming flight was first from San Diego, then Los Angeles. The arrival was delayed several times. Then our boarding was delayed several times. By the time we we in the air, we were even later. The flight was so turbulent, there was no food or beverage service, which isn't important anyway since that has become a token gesture by airlines anyway. . If this was an isolated incident, I could ignore it but it seems that this almost always happens when I fly United."
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "One syaffmemberrude butall not very friendly orhelpful no food to purchase on board which meant we had absolutely nothing to eat until landing not good when ad ertise that you can purchase on board also paid 50 dollars for checked bags but ihadconfirmed with your airline theywereinyheprice along of gimethecrewwalkedpast with coffee withoutaski gif wanted one"
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Sufficient food, quite tasty."
Cons: "Extra charge for spirits. Only beer or wine complimentary. Poor headphones and image quality so overall entertainment mediocre."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "No verbal announcements during boarding meant this flight had a very chaotic beginning. I cannot believe how tight the seats are on United's planes, and I am not a terribly large person. Airlines that still charge passengers for in-flight entertainment deserve a special sort of hatred that they receive, and United is the worst for this. Charging for wifi and movies is straight out of the year 2000, and that's squarely where United is. If JetBlue can offer free wifi, complementary movies and TV, snacks that are not stale, and an extra inch of legroom so can United. I hate this airline."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."
Cons: "It was HORRIBLE. They had to book us on another flight to Houston and then to Dallas because there were no more direct flights. We arrived at the check in counter at 10 AM. Flight left at 10:40. We were only 5 minutes late for the cutoff after a 15 hour flight with delays that were NOT our fault but were the fault of the airline itself. Our seats were terrible going back and they did not even offer us any kind of voucher to help with the added time and stress of having to wait for another flight and take an extra one."
Cons: "Very cramped with staff who I found overbearing. Not the most pleasant experience."
Pros: "economy plua has a reasonable amount of room, good food for breakfast, nice movies in flight."
Cons: "they canceled our flight to hanaeda and instead had us take an hour later flight to narita which is a 1 1/2 hour $30 bus ride away which they don’t pay for. this caused us to miss our connecting flight to Asahikawa, the last flight of the day. The connection time allowed was not nearly enough even if the plane had not been an hour late and there are no flights to asahikawa from narita. yo have to transfer to hanaeda. remind me not to fly United to Tokyo again as I’m pretty sure the flight was canceled because it was not full enough. Even the narita flight with all the hanaeda passengers rebooked on it was not full. So i suspect this may be a relatively common occurance on the hanaeda flight."
Cons: "Delayed for so long! 5 hrs"
Pros: "Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly."
Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Reached SFO safely. Thank God!"
Cons: "Awfully rude and uncaring cabin crew. Especially a guy named Eric. Bumped my shoulder with service cart when Zi was sleeping. Ignored me when I tried to catch his attention several times. Didn’t care a damn about offering a vegetarian meal/snack. Both times only available meal was non vegetarian. Normally the crew tries to accommodate and offer some options. But Eric said this was it...take it or leave it. Just so rude and uncaring. No entertainment in head rest in front. Internet was extremely spotty and the charging station would stop after some time automatically :("
Pros: "Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly."
Cons: "Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again."
Pros: "Again could not fault staff and quality of flight services, luckily space to sleep so fantastic flight."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"
Cons: "Seats to small. But I am 6'3"" and my son traveling with me is 6'5"."
Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was tasty, but strange smell was contaminated. Announce was so fast and unclear both English and Japanese. I felt no intention to communicate."
Pros: "Boarding was really easy"
Cons: "Not only you have to pay for checking one bag, not only you have to pay for a poor meal, you also have to bring your own device to watch a movie!"
Cons: "1. The flights within the US and Canada was delayed. 2. The United Airline staff in San Francisco told me to pick up my luggage when I get to Seattle despite of the fact that my final destination was Vancouver. I questioned the staff about this ata this seemed odd, but he insisted that I pick up my luggage in Seattle. Upon arrival to Seattle I went to the baggage claim area to find out that my luggage was already put through to the connecting airline to Vancouver. This resulted in me having to go through a long line of passengers to do all of the security checks again to enter the international airport gates. This almost resulted in me missing my connecting flight to Vancouver. The only saving grace was that the flight was delayed by another hour. 3. Changes made on my connecting flights were only given to me during my check in at Auckland. My previous booking was Auckland -San Francisco - Portland - Vancouver. The boarding pass I was given in Auckland omitted Portland and was changed to Seattle. I was never informed about this by United Airlines. 4. United Airlines website NOT allowing me to log in using my e-mail."
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice. I picked one of the seats at the end so plenty leg room."
Cons: "OK, United, I understand and fully support "no more seat monitor" policy to reduce costs (even though it seems very backward); however, there's one problem--if you still want to enjoy onboard entertainments, you need to download the United application above 10,000 feet where you can never find your 4G connection. Oh wait, but there's still Wi-Fi service, right? Sure, if you are willing to pay $17 just to download application!! United, I understand how you want to make little money out of a customer's pocket, but this is not how you should do it. You should at least allow internet connection before departure or let the customer aware they need to download application beforehand."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."
Pros: "Boarding was fast when delayed plane arrived."
Cons: "My seat was dirty with used napkins and crumbs."
Pros: "The boarding was pretty good for this flight, seemed simple enough, everyone was pleasant. And I was near an exit, which offered sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I was disappointed by a few things... 1. The staff didn't much care to be there. They seemed distant and unconcerned, although their words were supportive. I just got off a flight from Seoul to SF, with United (892) and they admittedly stated that they were understaffed (which was completely fine) and their attitudes were much more supportive than that of the following team (486), a flight from SF to IAD. 2. I was surprised, that on a 5hr flight, they only offered a half bag of mixed items and two rounds of beverages. I was sure that they would feed us something. However, if it's not the policy, I get it...but I asked if they had anything I could purchase, the flight attendant points me to the menu pamphlet and says that I could choose from there. I asked for the Chilled Chicken with Slaw and she promptly lets me know that they only have cheeseburgers, a protein box and Cheese. For a person who's lactose intolerant, I was again disappointed by the service--why ask me to go to the menu, if you knew there were only three items you were offering?? So I didn't order anything. 3. The entertainment blows my mind. I've flown with you guys like 8 times this year, and the app still does not work properly, however, before every flight, someone mentions over the intercom to be sure to download the app...but if it doesn't work...why offer it? Also, if there are tvs at the back of every headrest, the least you could offer is a random movie, versus the commercials about how great the app is, or whatever was scrolling along. Lastly, please note, I was trying to figure out a way to make a comment to United...but didn't want to sound TOOO disgruntled. I'm not opposed to flying with UA, absolutely not, but if any of these things are addressed, I definitely feel you will be making a massive improvement on what seems to be an airline that I'd think twice about taking. Feel free to e-mail or call me. I don't mean to sound rude...but having flown other airlines, and knowing that UA has been around for a while, i just hoped the experience would be better."
Pros: "Crew on board was professional."
Cons: "Plane was delayed over two hours due to mechanical issues. I missed my connections. Three separate United employees assure me I'd be rebooked for onward travel. I was sent to three different counters regarding my onward travel - sent from terminal to terminal. No onward travel was resolved and I eventually just paid for a train onward. I was told this was because it was a weather delay but at the boarding gate multiple announcements were made about repairing the plane and replacing batteries. United deliberately wasted my time and never fulfilled their obligations to get me to my destination. (Additionally, wifi and entertainment was not functional the entire 11 hour flight)"
Cons: "5 minutes before we boarded they tried to change my seat without informing me.... luckily it popped up on my phone that my seat had changed I reserved an aisle seat when I made my reservations five days before the flight. All of a sudden they put me in the middle seat ...so I went to the counter and the person at the counter tried to tell me that I just changed to the aisle seat that I had which I actually have had for 5 days and she tried to tell me that I was lying to her I was not very pleased with United at all!!! I made it very clear and even showed her the email from 5 days ago where I had that seats all along the aisle seat that she took away from me and put me in the middle somewhere so three minutes later she told me to look at my phone and she changed me back but that's after she basically called me a liar and said I didn't know what I was talking about!! Worst US AIRLINE!!"
Cons: "Leg I was only offered economy. Not plus"
Pros: "It was perfect flight by all means"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never got to do this flight because of the previous flight which is reviewed below: My seat was broken and wouldn't stay in upright position. This really pissed off the passenger behind me. Crew kept telling me to put my seat upright, I kept having to tell them the seat was broken. Old airplane with no in-seat entertainment. they advertise on the seat that you can watch all their entertainment content for free, but then you have to pay for wifi to watch so it's not free then, is it? Every movie or show requires "additional software" so you have to purchase internet to do the download. This is an 11 hour flight, I would have appreciated being able to watch a movie or something without forking out $30. Flight was delayed, so we were low on time to make our connection. I asked a flight attendant twice if we could get help deplaning early or at least get moved up some rows since we were in the very back of a 747 (there were plenty of vacant seats). They said no, and told us that customs would only take a minute and that the other united flight knew we'd be coming and would wait. I don't usually fly united; other airlines typically will actively take steps to help (like moving connecting passengers to the front shortly before landing) if they are the cause of the delay. Customs had only one agent working and we were pretty much last in line so that process took over an hour. Just moving us 10 rows forward before landing would have made all the difference because our connecting flight closed its doors and taxied for takeoff less than 5 minutes before we arrived. They had some united employees guiding and directing a couple of passengers that were going to be late for a connection to LAX, but no help for those of us connecting to portland. Customer service didn't even offer a verbal apology. Last time I flew with united, I also had a terrible experience for different reasons. I did not intend to fly united for this flight, but I purchased tickets through and for Lufthansa, and this flight was regrettably operated by united. Another thing I don't like - the food was horrendous. It was a breakfast sandwich that was advertised as "hot and fresh" on the packaging but was served straight from the refrigerator. I was in the middle seats with one person to my left and two people to my right. Everyone took only one bite and threw away the rest. Just don't bother serving the food if it's going to be that bad, it's very wasteful. I always appreciate a hot towelette after a long overnight flight. United offered no such thing which was a first for me. Regarding boarding: they called us all up to line up in boarding groups and then we had to stand in line for 65 minutes. I have a bad back and had to sit on the carpet to avoid being last in line and not having space for my carry on bag. Would have been nicer if they would have just let us sit in the chairs at the gate in comfort until they were ready to board."
Pros: "No entertainment unless you pay, but you can't turn the tv off, so it's playing bright ads in your face all night. Awesome."
Cons: "If you want to feel like you're riding the most cramped Greyhound bus, definitely ride with united."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight delayed after boarding by 30 + minutes. Snack was not only meager but tasted stale. As my flight from LA was a bit late I didn't really have time to get something to take on the plane. The on board choices were expensive and not at all appealing. Beverage service was only twice. The plane was dirty I had trash in the seat pocket in front of me. The bathroom I used was awful. Trash on the floor toilet was dirty and it smelt bad. It was comparable to a train I took crossing Siberia in the 90,s. My flight to LA was delayed by 51/2 hours. I was given a voucher but after this experience not sure I will ever use it"
Cons: "Arrived in SFO late due to delay from SBP on flight 5022. Rushed to the gate for flight 5992 which was scheduled to board at 2:00 and depart at 2:25. Arrived at the gate at 2:12 with 4 other passengers, 3 of which came from flight 5022. Found the door to the jetway closed and no airline employee to be seen. One fellow passenger ran to a neighboring gate to ask an employee for help and was told they could not help us. Another passenger called united customer service and was put on hold. At 2:23 the united employee emerged from the jetway and told us that we had gotten there too late. When we told the employee that all 5 passengers had been waiting at the gate for ever 10 minutes, the employee argued, insisted that we were lying. This was not only extremely unprofessional but also added insult to injury after we had missed this flight due to fault 100% on united's shoulders and none of our own. I am completely baffled how an employee could not wait just a few minutes when you have 5 passengers rushing in late. The employee could have looked in the system and seen that we were already on the ground and coming from a near by gate. I was rebooked on flight 1889 at a later time. After boarding 1889 a maintenance issue was detected requiring all passengers to deplane. It is beyond me why this issue was not discovered until after the flight had been boarded, when at that time the plane had been sitting at the gate for over two hours. After being delayed over an hour we were on our way to Austin. Ultimately I arrived in Austin 5 hours after my original arrival time due to the incompetence of united airlines. I was disappointed by the lack of professionalism and compassion by united employees throughout the ordeal."
Cons: "Because of a delay in SFO to Chicago O'Hare airport I missed my connecting flight back home. My connecting flight left early without me. While boarding the plane in SFO, the people at the gate made me check my carry on bag. Which I thought was very weird. When we finally got to Chicago I stood in line for two and a half hours to talk to one of the worst customer service lady of my life. She swore at me many times over me trying to be polite and wait for her to call me up to find another flight. Instead she looked at me and said "what are you waiting for?" She said to me "Oh here's a flight. But oh wait it's already sold out or gone" and she would laugh. Finally she found a flight close to where I live. My baggage had got lost from my connecting flight leaving without me. I got all of my luggage 2 days after. My carry on bag that got checked at my gate was in a clear trash bag. I took it out of the bag to find that it was completely trashed. My handles were ripped off which put a huge whole revealing all of my personal items. My carry on bag has only been used once and can never be used again. I unpacked my bag and noticed $300 worth of my stuff was missing. I have called to make many complaints to talk to corporate office but no one would give me the correct number. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again. I am so disappointed."
Pros: "United really could have done better informing us of delay, then cancellation. I knew it was likely to be delayed due to weather, and kept checking the status. It wasn't listed as delayed until nearly boarding time, although it seems pretty clear they knew well before that. But SFO was a star. The new decor is sophisticated and comfortable. Bathrooms were like at a swanky night club! Comfy chairs and charging outlets every where. The biggest hit was the Exploratorium installation, which kept my and plenty of other kids entertained!"
Cons: "Wayfinding signage from BART is confusing. BART connection is a pain. The machines in the station only take $1 and $5 bills-- no 20s or credit cards! And no one at BART cares if you are running late for a flight."
Pros: "On board shows were good."
Cons: "Flight left about 3-3.5 hours late. Add that to the time you have to show up early to the airport and I could've been almost home in my car. We were boarded and left to sit for a long time then the pilot came on saying the mechanic needed more time to look at the tire which might need to be changed. After another 15-20 min sitting, pilot comes on and says we need to get off the plane so the maintenance could be done. Ok I'd rather fly safe than be on time but really? Why doesn't this airline have enough planes that the maintenance can be done when the plane isn't scheduled to fly? So many people missed connections and we ended up getting home so much later than we had expected! Honestly I would rather the airline have emailed saying flight delayed 3 hours so I could have had more time in SF rather than sitting in an airport eating a mediocre airport meal for dinner. They had to have known the tire was almost to the point of changing right? I mean I would hope it's checked each flight. Just all together inconvenient. Like they book all theses flights to make money and yet if they had fewer but didn't make anyone waste the day or night at the airport so they could perform routine maintenance it may be worth an extra few bucks in my book. My time is valuable too, and I don't think I was the only one on the flight who thought so. Maybe United doesn't value anyone else's time other than theirs. Guess this is why we have several airlines to choose from and we will not likely fly United again."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the gate! I believe her name was Jackie or jaciquiene at SF was the most inconsecrate women I have ever met! She was yelling at me to put my bag in the bag to see if it will fit. She was completely rude and acted like she hated her job! I will NEVER fly with UNITED again! I will be contacting United regarding this issue as well! The other lady at the gate called her led and after that she contacted her supervisor and they also didn't let me on the flight! This was the worst experience I have EVER had! I will NEVER FLY WITH UNITED AGAIN."
Pros: "Quick-ish boarding"
Cons: "No food. No entertainment. No power. Garbage, lowest rung "bus in the sky" service"
Pros: "The flight made the best out of what they had to work with. They got me to my destination."
Cons: "I paid $200 extra to get upgrade my seat but it was far from an upgrade. I my seat was next to the bathroom. People were constantly coming and out as well as stepping on my feet while they stood and stretched so I never had any actually "extra leg room". I didn't get any sleep from the bathroom lights contasntly shining in my face. The entertainment was horrible there were no tv screens expect for the small ones going down the aisle. Felt like I was on a flight from when I was 10. When we made it to our destination baggage claim was a mess and our carsoul kept changing. None of the passengers or employees knew what was going on. It was a mess."
Cons: "We were diverted from Pittsburgh because of fog. Other flights landed shortly thereafter from other airlines which was frustrating, but a short delay did not ruin the day. We landed instead at Dulles. After sitting and waiting for hours we were finally all put back on the plane. Then we taxied out before the pilot told us they were over their hours or something along those lines and couldn't submit the paperwork necessary to take off. We went back to the gate and were told to wait some more in case there were more pilots. No more pilots came. No more flights were available. Instead we all hovered either around the gate desk or the customer service desk where we were told we couldn't be helped. We were instead forced to pile onto buses nearly 5 hours after we had landed at the wrong airport. We then spent another 6 hours on the road driving to Pittsburgh on a bus that was crowded and hot because the air conditioning kept failing. Because of some fog and a lot of incompetence, I arrived in Pittsburgh over 12 hours after I was supposed to. My trip in total lasted 20 hours from my flight in Seattle taking off. I missed an important event for the wedding that weekend, which was upsetting given the distance I had to travel and the amount of extra time I had scheduled in for myself, but the way we were treated was worse. There was no positive communication. Nobody knew anything. We were clearly an inconvenience that nobody knew what to do with so they just kept trying to push us off to the next person. It was infuriating and unacceptable I will never fly United again if I can possibly help it."
Pros: "I enjoyed very little about this experience. The crew was cordial however they lose the ability to perform simple tasks by the long standing protocols and overcrowded flights. Most of the crew are as unhappy as the passengers."
Cons: "The plane hit the brakes while taking off and returned to the gate due to a warning light. We were told nothing other than we needed to wait. They said the fix took 5 minutes but our wait took 2 hours. Not efficient. They rent out tablets for on plane entertainment, unlike every other plane I've ever flown, they make you pay to keep you happy during a 5.5 hour flight. Food was horrible. The seat did not recline and they eradicate every ounce of comfort to overpack the plane. The Captian made little announcements and the one he did make upon decent, started with "please fasten your seat belts, we are 65 miles away from Honolulu but...", I was sure the "light" came back on 30k feet about the pacific and we were going down. Finally - the last announcement from the head stewardess didn't include "Aloah, thank you for flying United". Seems minor but it goes to show they don't care anymore. That's the first time I hadn't heard the welcomed message after my 20th trip to the Islands. After my return flight I vow to never fly United again."
Pros: "There was nothing to like about this constantly delayed flight with rude attendants at the gate. I will not be flying United again."
Cons: "Everything! Our flight started with a thirty minute delay which was mentioned after we were asked to stand and prepare to board. The flight continued to be pushed out an hour every hour with no reason as to why. Our gate changed and we were told to line up for boarding, then we had another delay. The frustrating part was being told to line up to board only to see another delay. In total, the flight was delayed over four hours, being asked to prepare to board three times and with one gate change. This was not even the worst part, our new plane did not have WiFi, which was promised when booking. Needless to say, the entertainment was bleak. The icing on this flight from hell was when we hit turbulence and two bottles of wine spilt on another passenger and all over the floor. I understand that this happens, but none of the flight attendants attempted to clean up the wine and all the passengers where forced to smell cheap red wine for the remaining eight hours of the flight. I regret to claim that I will not fly United ever again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."
Pros: "Got us safely and conveniently to Vic at a good price and on time. Flight attendant was fine and cooperative, though no special warmth."
Cons: "I have one star on food and entertainment because there wasn't any of either, but that's understandable for a short flight. No issues."
Pros: "Everything about this United flight was amazing. The crew was friendly and the plane was new and in beautiful condition. It was a smooth ride. My only complaint is that we flew a red eye, departing SFO at 10:50pm arriving at ORD at 5am and the seats were so hard and uncomfortable it was impossible to sleep, which made our busy first day in Illinois quite miserable. I'm not the kind of person who is generally picky about seats or how comfortable cars and things are, but these seats were so bad it really was pretty miserable and it effected the quality of our trip since we were only in Illinois for two days before our return flight. We would be hesitant to fly United again due to the seat quality. I would not be as hesitant for shorter flights or daytime flights, never again on the red eye though."
Pros: "did not enjoy my flight whatsoever."
Cons: "they had to change me and about 10 other peoples flights because of the delays from "cloud cover" (what the hell?? terrible excuse) then the attendant LIED to me about where my bag would go. i missed my flight because of this, had to get re routed to san diego over 2 hours from my house, and my bag was sent to john wayne so i had to drive ANOTHER hour ans a half in traffic out of my way all because that illiterate moron of a flight attendant didn't know how to communicate with her coworkers about where our bags would be or how we could get them. absolutely never flying united again. horrible. what an awful day. they DO NOT deserve my hard-earned money, and the people deserve to know how truly crappy their service is."
