It was the change of planes that severely limited carryons that caused my overall “okay” rating. That would not have concerned me either but for the fact that we had to wait nearly 30-minutes at the carousel for the baggage to be put out. It was frustrating, making an otherwise great experience less memorable. Also, charging for internet that doesn’t fully work onboard is petty, and it is impossible to solve while onboard. In both directions I was not fully able to access the internet.
Great attendants, left close to schedule e d time in spite of LAX construction all around.
Pros: "Almost everything. Some highlights: Seat comfort and its design elements for smartphones and tablets, cleanliness overall, legroom, quality of service, timeliness, terminal/gate in LAX."
Cons: "I’m nitpicking: the mid-cabin economy restroom is too small. Its rubbish bin was also full and had clearly not been emptied in LAX. There weren’t any sweet snack options."
Cons: "The plane departed almost two hour late. What’s wrong with alaska air?"
Pros: "The crew was quite good at serving us water often."
Cons: "The plane was 50 minutes late in departure. On boarding process was a mess because the crew tried to rush everyone. Then all three bathrooms in economy class broken down about two third of the way to Washington. First class bathroom is the only one working with a long line at the economy cabin..."
Pros: "They were really nice. The flight was delayed due to bad weather in DC and they let us deboard for awhile to stretch our legs, etc."
Cons: "Nothing. Even their legroom in coach was good!"
Cons: "Most service good"
Pros: "Crew was excellent!"
Pros: "Seats comfortable"
Cons: "I was put in the seat behind the flight attendant jump seat the row behind exit"
Pros: "Lots of legroom. I was in the middle seat and was very comfortable. The staff was excellent. Left on time and arrived early! Bags were delivered by the time we got to the carousel."
Pros: "We left on-time, without delays."
Cons: "There was a loud child behind me, but that has nothing to do with the airline, unless they enforced a silent cabin more."
Pros: "Quick flight, low price, great crew."
Cons: "Typical short leg room, seat wouldn’t recline at all."
Pros: "The plane was very updated with TV & Internet. Flt attendants were very nice & responsive as usual & expected of Alaska."
Cons: "Not enough first class seats!"
Pros: "The timeliness, crew were very nice and courteous. The overall feel was very positive. The lady at the check in counter was amazing.she was friendly,welcoming and set a very good tone for the flight"
Cons: "There was really nothing that I did not like on the flight that I can think about right now"
Pros: "I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service"
Cons: "gate change and no display text on digital display that the updated gate was indeed the flight to SFO"
Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"
Pros: "Flights left on time and arrived early. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "You get two cookies, but for such a long flight a more substantial snack would be much appreciated."
Pros: "Good boarding process. Good flight time"
Cons: "There isn't food."
Pros: "On time, service, food. It was first class but worth it."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport 5 minutes (NO more than that) after the one hour check in time to fly international going to Mexico. We were told we had to wait in line to speak with someone to print a boarding pass. There was an extremely long line with only two employees helping. We then asked if we could get our money back being that if someone has specially helped us with our case only being 5 minutes late to check in, but they declined. We had to book an entirely different flight and still have not gotten our money back. It was very stressful and unprofessional and had someone actually helped us, we would’ve arrived at our destination at the proper time we worked so hard for. I know my boyfriend and I weren’t the only people with his problem because two other families ran into the exact same avoidable problem. It felt very unprofessional. It ruined a familys vacation and caused the poor children to cry because of the lack of accommodation. We would love our money back but not sure you guys will even do so. Very disappointing."
Cons: "I didn't make it because the flight to LAX was late and despite being told by an Avianca employee there was a later flight from LAX to PDX (at 11:45 on AlaskaAir) which I would be put on, once I arrived I was told I was on a 6 AM on Delta with no arrangement to get me a hotel or anything. I bought a separate ticket on that 11:45 flight on Alaska Air to PDX instead. Extremely unhappy with this service and will never again use it. I will also tell everyone in my social circles, in person and online, to stop using it."
Pros: "Repeated drink service appreciated on the long route"
Cons: "Entertainment Wifi wouldn't play any movies"
Pros: "Plane was full, but it didn’t feel too cramped. Flight Attendants all kind and efficient."
Cons: "No complaints except they need more vegetarian food options as it’s a 5.5 hour flight. No entertainment screen, you need your phone to watch anything, but there are USB plugs at each seat."
Pros: "Everyone from counter check-in to flight attendants were very kind. You just don't see that anymore. This is my first time with Alaska Airline and I would be glad to fly you again."
Cons: "The Gogo internet was very slow to non-existent -- like dial-up slow. WiFi delivery may not be Alaska Airline's fault, but $40... woof. For that price, I want it to be blazing fast."
Pros: "Clear regular flight notifications. Clean cabin. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Both flights in and out had snappish flight attendants who were short-tempered and actively unfriendly. Otherwise fine flights."
Pros: "Good plane on time"
Cons: "I’ve got the latest iPad and software but entertainment system could not connect Only snack food for sale on an evening flight"
Pros: "We sat at the economy class; yet Alaska crew treated us marvelously. They kept on bringing us drinks and smiling all the time. Special recognition to Pearson—he is phenomenal; he remembers our names and treats us royally."
Cons: "No pillow or blanket"
Pros: "Crew was great. I was carrying a tuxedo and a suite and one of the crew offered to take them from me and hang them instead of folding them in the overhead. Everyone was very please t."
Cons: "1. Entertainment was a small tablet that you rent to see movies. I can’t believe it has reached that extent. 2. Food. We ordered a chicken sandwich and the veggies that go in the sandwich came separately in. ZIPLOCK bag. The shredded carrots were all over the place. Really bad idea."
Cons: "The usual: poor seating and no food/beverage service gratis. Compared to the majors United, American, and Delta, Alaska service and helpfulness are outstanding."
Pros: "On time, baggage was so fast- no wait! Everyone was friendly and service amazing. I also have a broken tailbone and seat was still comfortable and wifi was great."
Pros: "Alaska delivers -- even though taking off took a lot longer, the pilot made good time during the flight"
Cons: "I brought economy plus seat but unfortunately my immediate neighbor was a mom with a two year old screaming boy. And he screamed and screamed."
Pros: "I love the upgrade option to Premium class and the snack box that comes with it is great! Staff was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Only one thing: when using the kiosk to get my boarding pass and upgrade, it doesn't specifically state to insert and quickly remove my credit card, so I'm waiting waiting waiting and nothing is happening and I start over and still nothing, so I go wait in line at the desk that solves problems only to learn that small detail and then the clerk said he couldn't take care of it for me and sent me back to the kiosk! What a pain! I'm sure I'm not the only one this has happened to. How hard is it to put clear instructions on the screen? please and thank you!"
Pros: "Crew was so awesome keeping us hydrated the whole time! Early flight arrival, and it was such a smooth trip. Comfortable seats, and not what I was expecting from an "off" airline"
Cons: "It was quite hot sitting next to the window."
Pros: "Landing 40 min ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines continues to do it rite! To my surprise, while checking in my 60 lb bag of surfboards, I was only charged $25, not the already low price of $75 I am usually charged. This new discounted price enabled me to save $100 round trip on board charges. Unlike other airlines that charge $100 Per surfboard, Alaska Airlines has implemented a program that serves the sports enthusiasts. From surfers, golfers, hunters, fisherman, and so on. Our gear goes with us for a fantastic price. Also, the food is actually pretty tasty too & the flight attendants treat you well."
Pros: "The entire on line checking in process including self bag tag was easy and bag drop was efficient."
Cons: "Initially I had problem with on line checking in. So I called help as was suggested. But the agent was not helpful or resourceful in solving my problem. So I said goodbye and tried it again from beginning and it worked."
Cons: "i didn't like the fact that we did the plane did not take off on time from LA making the arrival time very late to DC."
Pros: "the plane was late so boarding was late. it took a while for us passengers to all get on board."
Cons: "good entertainment options."
Pros: "Ample legroom, quick boarding and baggage handling. Love the "print them yourself" luggage tags. Did not use entertainment but loved power outlet at seat. Even lucky enough to arrive early."
Cons: "No lemonade available"
Pros: "This was our first time using Alaska Airlines and they were great! Checking in online was easy. Flight attendants and other staff were friendly and seemed to have your best interest in mind. My husband and I had a 20 hour layover in LA coming back from Costa Rica and we asked if we would have to pay another fee to recheck our bag for the second flight. They were very understanding and waived the fee since our overnight stay in LA was technically a layover and we had previously made the whole reservation for both flights at once using their company. Overall we liked our experience with Alaska and would definitely use them again!"
Cons: "I was seated at the emergency exit, seat 17a. Flight attended tells everyone that were responsible to open the emergency door and we must know english. For some crazy reason she singles me out and says "you understand that sir". My neighbor in seat 17b said "she told you off hahaha". I was embarrassed."
Pros: "Best flight attendants in a long time. Lots of fun!"
Cons: "seats seemed extremely narrow"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and absolutely polite! The check in was flawless! The plane was well maintained and clean, bathrooms in board were spotless as well. For a 5 hour flight there was a three time beverage service, which was great! The pilot and crew were informative."
Cons: "The chairs on the plane were not able to lean back which was a disappointment for a 5 hour flight. Also i would have expected to have in-seat entertainment for a middle-term distance flight. I know they offered tablets but for a fee, which is unacceptable."
Pros: "Ground and in flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late because of a suddent issue with the designated pilot's health but then they also gave me a good discount coupon."
Cons: "There was a 20 minute flight delay before we boarded. They announced there were mechanical difficulties, which took further time. After we left the gate, we were told that our pilots had timed out and we would need to return to the gate to get a new crew. We taxied for a long time back to the gate, then there were further delays while they added the gas they had used in taxiing. In the end, we arrived more than 2 hours late. It is hard to understand why they didn't anticipate this and replace our pilots before we left the gate. This was the return part of a round trip ticket; there was also a more than 2 hour delay on our earlier flight due to mechanical difficulties."
Pros: "I think Alaska is trying hard to compete with the big boys, and they do a good job. Seats are comfortable and the entertainment device is really good."
Pros: "Loved not having to pay for bags. That is a great thing!!!"
Cons: "would like better options for something to eat, that does't require a payment of some sort."
Cons: "Two very sick people were allowed to fly and were not denied boarding during these times of Covid19. We actually had to taxi back to terminal to remove a very sick passenger. JetBlue #100 March 17, 2020 10:12 pm from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale."
Cons: "Despite the delay of almost 3 hours (which we were informed much earlier than getting to the airport at) the plane was 40% empty so can’t complain at the end of the day"
Pros: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job."
Cons: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job. Two of the employees serving the cabin could use an attitude adjustment. The crew was late in getting food out but for a four hour flight there is no value in flying anymore. Airlines are just trying to rake in as much money as possible. When are they going to be responsible for everyone getting sick like cruise ships are? They should hand out masks and sanitizer because airlines are one of the dirtiest public spaces that there is! Show up late and barely clean the plane between its third or fourth leg of the day."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "More food options"
Pros: "The crew were great. The seat could always be bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Examine the seats in the cabin it seems to be loose from the mounting to the floor."
Cons: "Not only was our flight delayed two + hours because the crew was delayed (which happens), but then when we landed at midnight, there wasn't a gate open for us. We had to wait another 30 minutes just for a gate. What gives, JetBlue? Did you forget we were coming?"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were Not Applicable."
Pros: "It was my first experience & I couldn’t had enjoyed it more ! Words can’t explain"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Cons: "Add Subtitles to the movies at list in English thanks Tzach"
Cons: "Delayed. Ground crew was rude. Pilot wasn’t good. Landing was rough and ears hurt."
Pros: "The service and the food"
Pros: "crew member good."
Cons: "delay delay delay"
Pros: "Crew was accommodating and friendly-as I would expect."
Cons: "Service above and beyond the expected."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Flight was late, entertainment didn't work the whole time"
Pros: "Jet Blue planes are always great. Super clean and comfortable."
Cons: "They should have scheduled pistols for our flight. We had to delay the flight for two hours until they arrived."
Pros: "A lot"
Cons: "a little comfy seats"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The TV monitor was very small and the picture was pretty poor."
Pros: "Offering voluntary check-in of carry-on bags for free"
Cons: "all went well this trip"
Pros: "Crew was great Snacks were perfect Flight arrival was earlier Great experience"
Pros: "Plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "The Hawaiian themed meal/snacks"
Cons: "More free entertainment!"
Pros: "Flight on time, smooth birding/disembarkment"
Cons: "I boarded the flight with a carry-on and one personal item. As usual I personally place the carry-on in an overhead bin. After the flight landed and I went to retrieve my carry-on, it was gone! The flight was full, so I checked with the flight attendants if my bag somehow got gate-checked or it was moved. They didn't know and they said maybe it went into the checked bags. So I wait at the baggage claim and out comes my carry on bag without any tags. Strange! My carry on didn't have anything valuable, but a bit of communication or some form of record would have made this odd incident a little less nerve-wracking. 1. Please communicate with the passenger if their bags get transferred to the checked bags 2. Please communicate with the crew which bags get moved from the cabin to the checked luggage 3. Please label the bags if they get moved around--there was no gate-checked tags or any stickers to communicate with the checked luggage folks."
Pros: "Free wifi, free TV, full sized sodas and unlimited snacks. Not to mention the free mini hot towel they give you towards the end of the flight. I'll be flying jetblue from now on"
Pros: "Arrived early."
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The fact that I was 3 minutes late to check my bag (due to a line and walking to the wrong counter the first time) and they would not allow me to go on my original flight and route my bag on another flight. This resulted in me and my bag getting pushed on two new flights and my overall travel time going from 4.5 hrs to 11 hrs which with a 15 month old is an eternity. Many other airlines will allow you to make exceptions when checking in late (I was still nearly 40 minutes prior to flight departure) and let me still check a bag OR allow me and my baby to stay on the same flight without the bag."
Cons: "It really comfy and safe"
Pros: "Crew efficient, polite, & communicative. Array of tv channels allowed me to watch football while our departure was delayed."
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed our departure."
Pros: "Boarded early, plenty of leg room, delicious in-flight free beverages & snacks, arrived at DCA 27 min early. My wife had a panic attack and the two stewardesses took great care of her and calmed her down. Despite my wife's condition, the stewardesses took great care of the rest of the passengers, too. We've flown JetBlue to Puerto Rico and loved the service. My adult son is a fan of JetBlue."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Food pricey but good enough. Seats are comfortable. WiFi is intermittent. Cabin crew basically OK."
Cons: "Contradictory and incomplete texts about a 1.25 hour delay in departure time. Text should say to arrive at original time. Almost missed the flight because text did not say that. Got 2 different texts within minutes, one with incorrect info. Why did I have TSA Pre-Check status on the originating flight but not on the return flight? Not enough overhead space, and cabin crew wasn’t helpful in finding space. Flight 30 minutes late, but probably not JetBlue‘s fault."
Pros: "Decent leg space in economy"
Cons: "The cabin was too cold, and no hot drinks were available due to a malfunction. Blankets ran out."
Pros: "Flight delayed. Other than that everything was good, friendly crew, TV program on board, drinks and snacks, plus a carry-on item allowed, will use JetBlue more in the future ."
Pros: "Free WiFi but couldn’t turn off the white screen in front of my face after done using it"
Cons: "Lack of professionalism with crew. Could not understand the overhead announcements from the one stewardess. Sounded like she had a mouthful of marbles Picked up trashonly once at the very end of flight (5 hr flight). Offered drinks n food only once. Had no earplugs for WiFi"
Pros: "Loved the live TV and spacious room between seats."
Cons: "I didn’t like the weather delay but that’s not JetBlue’s fault."
Cons: "The plane was miserably cold, with tempuratures dipping well into the 50s on the aircraft. I was shivering and sneezing the entire time, guests in the row in front of my had their leather jackets over their faces. Air was pummeling me in the window seat. It was the most miserable 2 hours on a plane I have ever experienced, and I have been on thousands. I would highly reconsider the tempuratures on the plane seeing as that this could severely sicken children and elderly. I have never experienced this before."
Pros: "The app on my phone allowed me to do nearly everything but place my luggage in the back"
Pros: "I LOVED the comfort of the ample seating space and leg room, compared to American and free WiFi and movies with the individual monitors on the seat backs for every passenger. I flew Jet Blue on my return flight from LA to Boston to attend our son’s USC graduation. The flight from Boston to LA was on an American Airlines flight. The seats were super narrow with very cramped leg room. To add insult to discomfort , I learned just after take off on the American flight to LA that our dogs got loose at home and the person caring for them was frantic. I had to purchase in flight WIFI ($16/ hour $18 for the entire flight) to attend to the Lost dog issue (hugely stressful) only to learn after the flight that $300 worth of fraudulent charges occurred during the flight that my bank’s fraud department claims occurred as a result of entering my card information to purchase the internet access. That depleted the majority of our travel budget. (We live paycheck to paycheck and had pinched & saved to be able attend this special event) I was so apprehensive on the returning flight and can’t describe my relief to learn the WIFI was free. My fears dissolved as did my aching head and back as I settled into a wonderfully comfortable seat with far more leg room than my prior flight. Thanks Key Blue! You have a fan for life!!"
Cons: "Not one thing I didn’t like!!!!"
Pros: "Usual great Jet Blue experience."
Cons: "Crew took too long before they told us reason for delay of flight from DCA to CHS"
Pros: "Everyone was great, and the communication through the weather delay was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment: headphone jack was tricky to connect and (due to the weather) the stations didn't work."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. No disruptions. Nothing else to say' all good."
Pros: "Slight delay getting out of Boston, but we had received an email that there are runway repairs. Flight was smooth with pleasant service."
Pros: "The free WiFi and snacks will totally make me a repeat customer’ great flight attendants and good communication."
Cons: "No comments to provide"
Pros: "The service and timeliness was excellent"
Cons: "The machines to print the luggage tags were not working so we had to stand in a long line - after I had checked in and paid the fees the night before to avoid that."
Pros: "I like only 1 thing wi - fi is working good."
Cons: "I don’t like anything. It’s a worse airline ever i take I would like to suggest never ever fly with jet blue . I go through so many problems so rude employees working at help desk . Especially steven he said he is supervisor then he says he is only shift leader instead of helping he just talking so mean guy . This is really a big story i try to put in small words ...i fly with them on march 2nd LAX to JFK my finale destination is amritsar in India because of their fault i miss my next flight . The lady help me in morning she is very mean i wanna talk to supervisor she say I’m supervisor but she is only shift leader.i forgot her name . When steven told me he is supervisor i was like"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early both ways."
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were met. The crew was professional and corteous."
Cons: "There is no WiFi, directTV on the flight. There is “no satellite coverage “ during the flight. Even though it’s sate and it comes from space, there’s no coverage. Come on, there has to be a copyright issue or something."
Pros: "Never again will jet blue get a penny from me - worst flights ever !!!!!"
Pros: "I was traveling from Charelston to DC the weekend before Irma hit with a return flight Sunday. The counter agent was great at finding a return flight change no problem. No fee. Off I went, and off Irma went, I had to change my return travel plans and unfortunatelyJetblue didn't have s direct flight to my new destination, the counter agent in DC went thru possible options and worked with main ticketing to refund my flight for future use, noting it saved me money to rebook online at a cheaper fare, what airline does that theses days. Very pleased and grateful Jetblue made my travel during a tense weather weekend the least of my worries, they were Rock Stars!"
Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "Informing that the flight would delayed by three hours ahead of time would have been amazing. Instead of extending the delayed time every 45 min making us miss all the other opportunities to fly out"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The economy seats in an A321 are uncomfortable and there is very limited legroom."
Pros: "Super comfortable and inflight entertainment was amazing"
Pros: "Crew was great, very generous with snacks and beverages, and prior to boarding we were able to switch flights and seats without problem. All the Delta agents were extremely helpful, and had great customer service!"
Pros: "It suited the time i could travel"
Cons: "I felt although they said the two attendants were great they were at best mediocre especially the man"
Pros: "Flight was mostly uneventful, which is great! Right after takeoff we made a complete circle and no information was given as to why, but we assumed it was air traffic."
Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."

Pros: "The crew onboard was very good."
Cons: "My 4 year old daughter and I were not seated together and I was told that a 4year old could not sit alone yet Delta refused to move anyone. Instead I had to get on board and beg someone to please wait h seats with us."
Pros: "The efficiency of having my boarding pass on my phone (Apple Wallet). The Kayak and Delta apps streamlined perfectly and I was able to check in and pay for luggage through Kayak! I just need to do better at checking my phone due to both apps sending me updates about flight delays and luggage locations"
Cons: "Lack of space from being confined to the middle seat but the passengers next to me were nice and the plane ride was over before I realized it."
Pros: "- great customer service - friendly staff - Positive energy"
Cons: "- No room in the seats - No food served on plane - Crowded -"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"
Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Crew arrived late from Buffalo (?!?!) so our 7:59 flight didn’t start boarding until very close to that time. That delay, as Delta well knows, dominoed into LGA’s ATC issues and resulted in an arrival at DCA well after our scheduled arrival."
Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"
Pros: "Thanks to Angel in the ATL airport who helped ensure I had a more comfortable flight. He was very kind and I appreciated his help."
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "In typical Delta fashion they boarded, deplane, board it again and then beat the plane. Blamed it on weather even though a full maintenance crew was beneath the plane in the entire time and, for the coup de gras moved a new flight an hour later 30 gate down. Classic Delta hopefully they'll be out of business in a year"
Pros: "Flight ifself was okay once on the plane"
Cons: "5 hours delayed for no apparent reason. Understaffed in SJC to handle this."
Cons: "Disgusting smell to urine and else. It was a two-hour bad experience"
Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"
Pros: "The movie availability was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Although my TSA Pre check number was on my flight coming into Atlanta, it wss not on my fight leaving Atlanta. That caused me to arrive at my gate 5 mins before boarding time and prevented me from having time to eat breakfast before my flight."
Pros: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by almost 2 hours and caused me to miss my connecting flight. Next available flight was a 6 hour layover that I was not expecting."
Pros: "Allowed Pre boarding of infant (which American no longer does), complimentary food, entertainment on domestic flight, and friendly staff. Delta is upping the game!"
Cons: "Flight was late by almost 2 hours!!!"
Pros: "Flights were on time and friendly attendants!"
Pros: "I was a little concerned flying West Jet due to poor experiences in the past with Delta, but the flights were on time, staff friendly and accommodating and the plane very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say!"
Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."
Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."
Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Not being delayed for 6 hours would’ve been better."
Cons: "Running out of bin space by Group 3 is just wrong."
Cons: "Weather delay 5 hours"
Cons: "AA provided me NO assistance when my flight was cancelled and I had to make arrangements on my own, which caused me to incur in extra expending."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"
Pros: "Seats were not too cramped."
Cons: "Wifi that actually worked."
Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"
Pros: "Free movies on the included display and electric outlets are top notch."
Cons: "I wish they would offer food service more in the middle as we just ate before boarding."
Pros: "All the crew were pleasant"
Cons: "There was a delay but we weren’t well informed"
Cons: "Better seat cushions! There is not much padding & the seats get really hard."
Cons: "The plane was so hot temperature wise. I was literally sweating in a T-shirt"
Pros: "Their CRJ was very comfortable. More comfortable and modern than what I’ve seen on a lot of Skywest/delta connection flights. Crew was great"
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "The free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The flight to Washington was fine. It was the flight back that I have issues with."
Cons: "My issue with flying back American is that...I didn't. They boarded us on the plane, moved down the tarmac, and then checked to see that we had a brake problem. They took our plane out of service (which I get, I would want brakes before takeoff), but then they never updated us on our status, until I physically went to the counter to ask an hour later. This is when they informed me that the flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 9pm flight (Mind you, this is 12:30p and I have a 2 year old with me). Luckily, I was able to book JetBlue and get home earlier (8:00pm)"
Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."
Pros: "Nice modern plane. Even though the flight was delayed, we ended up boarding earlier than expected and arrived pretty close to our original expected arrival time."
Cons: "The crew was nice and everything, but they weren't very good at making announcements on the loudspeaker. You could tell they didn't really know what they were saying or haven't practiced. One lady was trying to make a sales pitch for a new master card and you could tell she was reading and there were long pauses. My sense is that when using the loudspeaker to talk to the entire flight, one should be practiced and know what they're saying and communicate quickly and efficiently. Don't mean to be critical, but it's something that I noticed that could be improved."
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time; great crew"
Cons: "Waiting 30 minutes to get off the plane because they couldn't use the gate assigned to them."
Pros: "Shabby Cramped"
Cons: "Cramped Uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours- weather related, but at other destinations- so this flight had to wait to be rescheduled. Also they weren't able to give any idea when the flight would be boarding- they just kept sending text alerts that it was delayed another half hour and no updates were listed on the screens. When the flight finally left, after I had been waiting for over 5 hours, we were told that they would be flying low, so there would be no beverage service. It would be nice in these situations to simply have bottled water to pass out quickly, or make the announcement prior to boarding so people would be able to bring their own beverages."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding is terrible at DCA for commuter flights. You get on a bus packed in like sardines and the stand there for 15 minutes."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Pros: "The quick boarding and kind flight attendants"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't recline. Somewhat nauseous smell at first."
Pros: "Bought a ticket from Alaska Air, but got farmed out to American, If I wanted to fly in American, I would have bought a ticket from them. This also made checking in a lot more confusing..."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Pilot did a great job getting here, but gate was blocked by a fuel truck and sat on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes! Pilot has now asked for a tug to pull us in."
Pros: "I was not able to seat with my son, I was not very happy about it."
Pros: "Excellent aircraft. EJR190. Not big but very comfortable aircraft. AA has decided to give actual leg room. Nice experience even in the back of the aircraft."
Cons: "AA needs to work on boarding logistics at LaGuardia. It's confusing to have to shuttle across the tarmac to another terminal. If the flight times had been closer I would not have arrived in time to board."
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."
Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "Because our plane sat on the tar mat in both White Plains and D.C. for over 40 minutes after an hour delay, we missed our connection to Knoxville. AA refused to offer any assistance with a hotel or rental car and literally ran through their script versus showing any empathy. Terrible experience and will never fly AA again."
Cons: "Because our plane sat on the tar mat in both White Plains and D.C. for over 40 minutes after an hour delay, we missed our connection to Knoxville. AA refused to offer any assistance with a hotel or rental car and literally ran through their script versus showing any empathy. Terrible experience and will never fly AA again"
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Cons: "Worse customer service ever inside and outside the plane. Try he daughter was traveling with a 3 year old and they didn't want to change their seats together are u kidding me my daughter had to be asking in the plane but they did it for other people."
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "100 degree plans before taking off for mechanical reasons. Upon arrival it looked like a refugee camp in baggage claim area. A bunch of bags unclaimed scattered about. The screen said carousel 12 and confirmed it with local reps and then after waiting for a while some passenger says "if you're coming from Charlotte the bags are at 11, that's where I found mine". The miracle of flight is a miracle. I rarely complain but more often than not when flying domestically I realize how stretched the airlines are."
Pros: "Nothing...I missed this flight due to negligence, miscommunication, and incompetence by the front desk agents."
Cons: "As my mom explained to me, there was a time in the 1960's when flying was a special experience. The flight attendants were proud to do what they did, and treated people with kindness and civility. That is all gone now. It is an ice cold experience. I feel like cattle."
Pros: "It arrived early."
Cons: "Very very noisy young children."
Cons: "Aircon too cool"
Pros: "I liked the lounge."
Cons: "The boarding process could've been better (no excess of gate changes, overbooking the flight, and kicking people out of their seats). Additionally, the food on board could've been better. My chicken was not chicken and lastly the airline's hard product could've been better, no IFE is a big no-no."
Pros: "The check in process at LAX was very efficient and smooth. and the crew on the plane was very considerate. And the tv system on some of the planes is very enjoyable."
Cons: "There was a technical issue on the plane so they had us get off and wait hoping they could fix the problem. It turned into a 3 hour wait. They covered a meal for us which was good and gave us $50 off our next flight. But I’m not sure I want to book united again. The lady at the service desk was not very patient (which is understandable since a loy of people had to rebook their connecting flights). But I was smiling at her and just asking how to go about changing our connecting flights and she seemed a little bit ready to get rid of me. And the next plane we got on, one of our tv screens didn’t work. And the connecting flight was delayed also because of a technical problem."
Pros: "Meals were good, good service, complimentary food and drink at good intervals"
Cons: "Late flight No room for bags for Group 2 in bulkhead row"
Pros: "We landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Connecting United flight was late due to us waiting for a gate for almost an hour. As a result we had to run to the gate to make the Tokyo flight. On boarding, staff were less than helpful in finding spaces for our luggage etc."
Cons: "Not much choice of good movies"
Cons: "Felt very cramped which did not make for a good res eye flight from LAX to EWR."
Pros: "Really great service! Smooth flight!"
Pros: "Very nice people working and good service."
Cons: "I had to print out my own labels for my bags. No one told me this . Mind you, I was already in line! I had to go print label. Get in line again. Attendant said I need to put the label on myself. And for me to step aside. I was not gonna get out of line again. No one was there to let customers know of this labeling. People were confused! Then I paid $25 online for my luggage. Then my luggage was over 50 pounds. I was charged $100. So I paid $125 for my luggage. Lax TSA Employees are rude and mean. Yelling do this and do that. Like we prisoners. I will never fly United again. I will let everyone know of my experience. Terrible customer service. Then your screens don't work on your airplane. Cannot watch movies. Therefore your plane is not up to par. But I paid up to $700! Never again. Good luck United."
Pros: "On a recent trip it was very good to be in the new dreamliner and with staff that were enthusiastic and being able to deliver a good product, food and comfort wise was a big bonus. Thank you"
Cons: "The movie not updated. No chinese movie. Love the pillow and blanket at business flight."
Cons: "we received email for the take off schedule changed to one hour early. End up when we arrived LAX and it got delayed 1 hr for take off due to air traffic. So when we arrived at SF, originally we only have 50 mins to catch on the next route to Osaka. There was no gate # provided on our boarding pass and we have to look for the international terminal for boarding. Due to first delay in SF, the time was so tight and the international terminal was so far away, we had to run like HELL and we almost suffered from heart attack. We barely made it and there was no one to help ever. we had to figure out on our own. This was very bad experience and was not acceptable with such poor arrangement."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "2 of the flight attendants were not friendly and one was flat out rude. They handed out some form that needed to be filled out before we entered Hawaii. When I asked for a pen she said they don't hand out pens and to start asking neighbors, which didn't have any either., however when she came back around to pick the forms up and some people didn't have them filled out she reprimanded everyone and kept saying you had 5 hours to fill these out. Her communication skills were not what I expected and her lectures were not necessary."
Cons: "No reclining seats and no meal. Flew from LAX to CHICAGO. Very uncomfortable. Advertisement for free WiFi on plane, but makes you pay when you log in."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, decent movies overall."
Cons: "I can't eat mushrooms. Both meals had mushrooms (3 out of 4 entrees) and it wasn't always obvious which ones. Additionally, the second meal with seafood or pasta, the pasta obviously had mushrooms so I chose seafood, even though I don't like most seafood. Mushrooms all mixed in with the seafood, so I had to pick them all out. Also 2 of the accompanying sides had mushrooms. Do they have a mushroom fetish like Cheesecake Factory? Need more consideration for people who may have varying food requirements that are unavailable to address during the booking process. I know you can't please everyone, but why overuse an ingredient that has a relatively low appeal to potential passengers? Will try again, just hope they can use similar customer service in their food preparation as they have otherwise."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty which made the whole long flight more bearable."
Cons: "Typical United service, without any bells or whistles."
Pros: "I only flew united because it was the cheapest I found for my flight at the time I booked it."
Cons: "My seat 3 of the 4 of my connecting flight seats were broken and could not recline. I could smell urine coming from the bathroom from my seat while waiting for people to board(3 hrs of urine smell will ruin any flight experience). The internet did not work coming back from Central America so if you don't have the entertainment app already on your phone, you couldn't watch any tv since you can't even download the app. Other airlines normally have a monitor so their customers can watch tv and not stain their eyes looking at their phone. But with United, if you don't get beat up the airline, its considered a win."
Pros: "A 3-hour stop over for the connection was not enough!!! The flight to San Francisco was delayed another 90 mins, causing me to miss my 15-hour flight to Singapore, although we arrived 10 minutes before the United Flight! Ten other passengers missed the flight! A travesty! Worse, with "no hotels available", I was rerouted to Chicago for a flight via Tokyo at 1300 the following day! In short, a 30-hour trip became 48 hours of hell and of course an 18-hour delaed arrival in Singapore. But there was more: my luggage was "lost" and thus arrived two days late!!!!! The only saving grace: friendly and helpful UA staff in San Francisco and especially in Chicago. Wow! I deserve some compensaton, wouldn't you all agree?"
Cons: "Please see above!"
Pros: "Got home earlier than planned because I was able to get on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Comfy seats and they offered a beverage"
Cons: "Our plane smelled horrible: like a bus full of HS boys after playing basketball in Satan's sauna for 2 1/2 hrs. No entertainment options but it was less than an hour flight so didn't really care. Our flight attendant said nothing about our carry on being bigger than the compartments of our tiny plane so we walked to the back with our bag just to bring it bag and them check it"
Pros: "Spacious seats, seatback screens, and some empty seats made this a most comfortable flight"
Pros: "It was perfect flight by all means"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great customer service"
Pros: "Really friendly staff, communicative, helpful. Gave good directions. Plenty of leg room on flight."
Cons: "Beyond the control of United, but LAX is a nightmare of an airport. Traffic control caused delays, airport staff more of a hindrance than helpful. Border control mumbling and barking orders at people like they're cattle. Not the best way to welcome tourists, but at least United Airlines crew made up for it with their smiles."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "We had a long delay with the cabin so I missed my next flight."
Pros: "Staff worked hard to get us bussed to Santa Barbara"
Cons: "We weren't informed early enough that the flight was cancelled, and everyone was a bit confused"
Cons: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Pros: "First time but I like it"
Cons: "Good experience"
Cons: "I was in the middle seat. I choose my seat too late so that was all that was available."
Pros: "Quick flight to Chicago"
Cons: "The attendant was kind of rude"
Pros: "I think these older flight attendants should retire if they don't like their jobs anymore. They were completely rude to many guest."
Cons: "Heavily delayed, kept getting later"
Pros: "the afternoon coffee, not offered by others"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth, and flight was very timely (landed early)."
Cons: "Male flight attendant was extremely rude. I was asleep when the food was being served and politely asked for a tray of food once I woke up. Fight attendant that I asked was at the time collecting trash and snapped back saying that he had to finish what he was doing first. After about 10 min the lady attendant walked by so I simply mentioned that I was waiting for my food in case he had forgotten or was busy. She asked if I had mentioned it to the man attendant and I told her that I had and that I was simply waiting. She proceeded to go to him (not sure what she told him), but he later came by and angrily handed me my tray of food and annoyingly explained that he had to finish handing the trash In order to then handle my food. I told him that I completely understood, and he AGAIN snapped back saying "oh really? Because I heard you were complaining!" And walked away. The rest of the flight he proceeded to ignore me. I had been nothing but polite to him. The lady across the isle was looking his way and the man next to me made a comment to me that I had done nothing wrong and mentioned he he noticed how rude the attendant was to me. That even if I HAD complained, he was in no place to confront a customer about it. Regardless, I hadn't even complained one bit."
Cons: "We waited on the plane for 45 minutes without explanation...finally we were told the caterer had personnel issues and the food delivery was late. I MISSED MY CONNECTION IN HOUSTON OVER THIS SND HAD TO TAKE THE NEXT FLIGHT 5 HOURS LATER! TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. Entire crew was very casual and unmoved by my situation....UNited you FAILED Miserably!"
Cons: "No free wifi. No free entertainment. Smaller than a kids small fruit snack bag of trail mix for a 4+ hour flight. Gate issues delaying our boarding-resulting in late take off.- and delayed transit home to last available route of the night- thank goodness!"
Pros: "United Flight cancelled because no available working aircraft. Did not tell us until very late at night. The lines and wait to speak to customer service was extraordinary. Could not get us out until the next day on another airline. They did give us hotel voucher but did not arrive at hotel until after midnight cue to late notice of flight cancellation and long lines at the airport. Sent bag on another flight even though we could not fly out as scheduled. Therefore we were stuck overnight without our luggage, change of clothes, cell phone charger etc... Seems United has these issues more than any other airline. Will avoid flying united in the future"
Pros: "seats were not as terrible as i thought"
Cons: "Food was horrible literally, flight was delayed had ti miss my flight to frankfurt and sleep the night in new york, huge hassle"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "United was happy to charge me $75 to switch me to an earlier flight, then that flight was an hour and a half late because they were missing a flight attendant. So they basically defrauded me out of $75."
Pros: "My wife and I are celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and we spend 6 hours at LAX. Two of 6 hours where sitting in the plane. This is the first and last time I'm flying with United. I'm extremely disappointed and I'm not looking forward to flying back to California on Sunday."
Cons: "I also hate the KAYAK update. I feel like I was being lie to for those this hours. For my experience I should be refund for my trip to San Francisco. On Facebook my experience is mention to all my wife and I friend, family and co workers. Again, I'm not looking to my flight back home."
Pros: "SEE CONS."
Cons: "Next to my horrible experience with Frontier Airlines, this 4-hour United flight from LAX to O'hare was among the worst flights comfort-wise I've ever had. What is with the lightweight, streamlined child-sized seats on airplanes these days? Are you really that tight on money, United? Upon boarding, there was NO room for my single carry-on; a backpack with a macbook and camera gear in it. The flight attendant tried to help finding a place but had to resort to offering to check the bag. With over $4,000 of gear inside I politely declined the crew handling it... Looks like its going under the seat in front of me. Normally on any flight, I can fall fast asleep after take off, and wake up 20 minutes before landing. These seats were so god-awful that 15 minutes in my back was cramping, and 20 minutes later my bum was throbbing with discomfort. This went on for literally the entire flight, even with breaks to stand up in the cramped airplane. I had to share a park-bench style armrest with two people, and to make matters worse, the seats didn't recline. The airplane was hot, airflow poor, and overall comfort at an all-time low. These may seem like minuscule complaints, but for me; they're important. I was happy that I was finally flying with a major airline, for a decent price, thinking that I'd be comfortable all the way home. Not the case apparently for United Airlines. I quit flying frontier awhile back for business, and have no added United to the list. I think I'll stick with southwest and virgin from now on."
Pros: "Boarding and deplaining went smoothly"
Cons: "Rear seats didn't recline and we're not as comfortable as other passengers"
