Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Plane was delayed multiple times resulting in 4 GATE CHANGES - and NONE of them were announced! I only knew because of my app. Boarding was ok once it finally happened. Plane was hot hot hot.

Cons: "My luggage was off loaded in Juneau and staff was not very helpful in providing information on claims etc....Very disappointed with Alaska Airlines."

Pros: "After a long delay the captain did his best to get us to Anchorage as quickly as possible. That was appreciated."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours due to the fact that the scheduled captain could not fly anymore due to hours. We had to wait to get another pilot. This caused some problems for some who had schedules to meet, and rides to be notified. The airline needs to see this possibility sooner so long waits are avoided as much as possible. The 737 was not as comfortable as the regional jet on our first leg of this trip."

Pros: "Awesome"

Cons: "charged for ipads, wifi didnt work,"

Pros: "Staff"

Cons: "Was delayed by more than an hour"

Pros: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."

Cons: "need more space"

Pros: "All of the above. The round trip was a pleasure"

Pros: "Peaceful in cabin"
Cons: "Blanket ,"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and the plane was not crowded."
Cons: "Wheelchair for my mom was not at the gate in Atlanta, she had to walk and we had to still check immigration, customs and reroute our luggage."

Pros: "Due to COVID 19 we got a 737-800 on a route that usually boasts nothing better than a 717 so everything about this flight was superior to normal runs."
Cons: "I wish DL could find a way to better manage food and drinks during the COVID 19 restrictive era."

Pros: "The crew was lovely and friendly, very pleasant to fly with."
Cons: "Not a fan that I was seated between 2 men I did not know which made me uncomfortable enough that I couldn't sleep at all during my red eye."

Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."

Pros: "Although we had to get a replacement plane due to fuel leak on the original, Delta accomplished the switch quickly and efficiently. The Captain came out to greet us, and the flight crew was pleasant, courteous, and professional."
Cons: "The little individual TV screens are tough to see for older eyes."

Cons: "A Boeing 757 should not be used for a 6+ hour flight"

Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."

Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "I got bumped from this flight a couple of hours before departing."

Pros: "Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA."

Cons: "Delta’s computer system was down. Long wait at the counter even though I did web check-in."

Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"

Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."

Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"

Cons: "Flight was moved up from 830am departure to 6am departure with very little notice, and my layover was reduced from almost 2hrs to 30 minutes. Then, my bag was lost. Terrible."

Cons: "Partner site said it was Aeromexico. First flight was delta so different check bag policy for internal flight that cost me $80. Screw you all"

Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "727 modern plane free movie free Wi-Fi"

Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."

Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."

Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."

Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"

Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."

Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."

Pros: "Nothing to like about this leg"
Cons: "The cramped real cramped space, shame on the US Poor service Delta should be ashamed of itself for this kind of poor cattle transport"

Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."

Pros: "love to fly delta"
Cons: "don't like when they ask to check bags at gate"

Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 13 hours, the airline (delta) made no effort whatsoever to remedy the adverse effects of this delay. They were even charging for snacks on the flight. A horrific experience throughout."

Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."

Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."

Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."

Pros: "The entertainment screen was good. The food was acceptable. The crew was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "The seating. Isn't that always the case. Buy a standard seat and be squished like you don't matter - just an afterthought - and if you wanted better, spend another $100 bucks or so. Add to that insult the fact that my wife and I couldn't even sit together because we couldn't choose seats until we arrived at the airport. Really."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour"

Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."

Pros: "Comfy seats onboard Good selection of movies Decent food from MEX to SFO"
Cons: "I purchased ticket stating business class for both legs, but the first leg of my trip did not have a business class cabin at all. I did not get what i paid for!!!! My seat back IFE did not work at all. Boarding experience was terrible and took forever. The lounge MEX was overcrowded with non-functioning wifi"

Cons: ":)"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Nice Crew. Seats ok."
Cons: "Nothing to add"

Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The ove"

Cons: "Attitude of the Aeromexico flight attendants . No customer service skills . Rude and disregarding"

Pros: "I was able to watch movies. The plane ride was smooth. No turbulence at all. Snacks were provided."

Pros: "Once again the plane ride was smooth. They transferred my bags. They gave us a croissant sandwich, beer, and yogurt at no cost. Loved the selection of movies."

Pros: "My seat assignment was changed, and I was in an empty row."
Cons: "I had a very difficult time hearing the p.a. announcements...and I'm not hard of hearing. Also, with the exception of one or two of the flight attendants, smiles were at a minimum. It didn't effect my safety, but it sent a message of indifference."

Cons: "missing luggage for 2 days now. not Good!!!"

Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Delay 5 hr made me stress, coz have conecting flight 6 hr..running in the diairport for check in LA - Korea"

Pros: "Comfortable, prompt, clean."

Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable, smooth and overall satisfactory. They gave us a sandwich meal and there was some inflight entertainment (which I didn’t use)."
Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."

Cons: "Food is baad"

Pros: "I was really impressed with the friendly and efficient service from Aeromexico. First time flying them and really appreciated the experience - so much better than the service on US airlines."

Cons: "We were delayed for about 4 hours. We had to get on and off the plane a few times, until they finally told everyone that the flight has been canceled. Had to book another flight with a different airline."

Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."

Cons: "I needed assistance and it was kindly provided"

Cons: "A friend was flying standby and didn’t get a seat even thpugh the seat beside me was empty. Very upsetting"

Pros: "Everything was nice"

Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad service!"

Pros: "The plane was comfortable and the crew was great."
Cons: "The boarding was ridiculous. They never posted what gate the flight went out of. If it wasn't for Kayak we would not have known when to go. The flight was delayed but they never did update that information. It did not leave on time like the board said. They just all of a sudden said they were boarding the flight."

Cons: "Changing flights is becoming Aeromexico’s normal practice, but if you want to change (even if you paid full price in Fiart Class) they’ll charge you for it. They should review their policies."

Cons: "I lost my flight since Aeromexico took forever to givw me my baggage, to make it worse, the customer service at Las Vegas is really poor."

Cons: "The crew was very rude, since the counter not helpful at all. The boarding was late."

Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."

Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"

Pros: "No turbulence at all, smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Knees hit the passenger seat in front of me. Hardly any leg room, we were all packed in like sardines."

Cons: "The customer service was horrible. The worst I've ever experienced."

Cons: "Was over an hour late boarding. Webpage stated that one checked bad was included, but was charged anyway."

Cons: "Food was lacking."

Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."

Cons: "Big delay"

Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."

Pros: "On time and comfortable."

Pros: "A few seat empty xso we all could stretch"

Cons: "The lady at Aeromexico was rude and yawned in my face twice. she charged me for my luggage twice and told me to deal with it once I get home"

Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing was bad."

Pros: "In general, the crew was helpful and cheery."
Cons: "I had ordered a vegetarian meal - do not eat any meat - which was reconfirmed with my prebooking the day before the flight. On board, I was served a ham croissant "no hay algo más". Ham is not vegetarian (!) No inflight entertainment for short hop (1h15) from Oaxaca to Mexico - understandable. Uninteresting selection of inflight entertainment for the longer Mexico-Montreal flight."

Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."

Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful."
Cons: "No movies, or shorts, even clips or old tv shows.... WAAAAAAAA"

Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"

Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"

Pros: "The Aeromexico staff is polite and respectful. There were movies available on the flight."
Cons: "At first we were told we needed to pay an additional fee for departure tax. I researched this issue ahead of time and knew the departure tax is now included in the ticket price--it has been that way for a couple years. We had to explain that to the Aeromexico agent. But to her credit, she looked into it and eventually agreed we did not have to pay the extra fee. It cost $65 for an extra bag. Seems steep but whatever, we paid it. The gate changed but no one told the ticket counter. When we arrived at the gate, dozens of other passengers were there but the electronic board stated the flight was at a different gate. Aeromexico staff needed to look into it to discover the gate had been moved. Not impressed with their internal communications. The flight departed about 40 minutes late. Not bad. The food was awful. Could only eat the cookie."

Cons: "Old plane slow crew. Seemed like they never were around j. Business class"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice"
Cons: "Absolutely no covid regulations in place, completely packed flight, boarding was horrendous everyone going in at once"

Cons: "This was the most uncomfortable flight of my life. We were packed in like sardines during COVID. This was the least amount of legroom I've ever had on a flight."

Pros: "Travel is becoming a pain ... what’s new?"
Cons: "Just the way travel has become —loathsome"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good seats, comfortable w headrest adjustable"

Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"

Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "yes thank you"
Cons: "all vary good"

Pros: "Good amount of leg room and storage. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "Seat was really nice. So were the meals"

Pros: "The plane was nice and clean...had just been renovated"
Cons: "I can’t believe therebwere no flights from MIA to RDU from 11:30 to 4:30 :(. (Original flight was a 3.5 hour layover and that was bad emough)...and then it was changed to this flight:("

Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."
Cons: "Small space once passenger in front of you lowers their seat back. Difficult to get in and out of my seat like that"

Pros: "The check-in was pleasant. I was treated politely, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "People at the gate while boarding were quite rude."

Pros: "Courteous employee interactions from bag check/gate to arrival!"
Cons: "Everything was truly GREAT"

Pros: "The flight was good. The crew was dedicated."
Cons: "The seats were horribly tight. Too small for a 11h flight. Not everyone is rich or has money to flight first, business or even premium. One day soon or later you're going to have to deal with that reality. We deserve a bit more space for 11h"

Pros: "Everything went as expected. Overall a smooth flight and friendly service."
Cons: "Well, it's never comfortable to try to sleep in economy class, right? But I knew that going in, and that's what I chose."

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined so far that the guy in that seat had his head less than a foot from my face and my knees were being smashed by his seat. Very painful."

Cons: "The plane was late"

Pros: "One nickel hostess"
Cons: "PAID FR UPGRADDED SESTS AND THEY WETE GIVEN TO LATE ARRIVALS."

Cons: "Foods are so salty overall. No individual entertainment system available."

Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "One of my pieces of luggage was not on my flight. The gate agent was difficult to understand. It was her nasal accented English that was the problem."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and in-flight entertainment was good, including easy access to power ports."
Cons: "Delayed about an hour due to weather. However, another 2 hours spent screwing around sitting on the plane after boarding because no one anticipated DCA restrictions. Then on arrival sat another 30 minutes waiting for a gate. Adding insult to injury, took about 40 minutes to get luggage. Weather is understandable, but the rest was just mismanagement."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."

Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."

Cons: "This flight was miserable. Seriously, one of the worst flight experiences I've ever had. The leg room was absurdly small. I'm not a tall person and I only had one inch in front of my legs. When the guy in front of me put his seat back it pressed into my knees. There wasn't enough space to bend down and untie my shoes, let alone get something out of my bag. My shoulder and knee were touching the guy next to me (a complete stranger) for the entire flight and there was nothing I could do about it. This was a red-eye but I absolutely could not sleep because it was so uncomfortable, so when we landed I had a terrible migraine and was nauseous and disoriented going through customs. I actually had to sit down in the airport because I though I was gonna pass out while trying to carry my bag, that's how shitty I felt after this flight. On top of that, not being able to sleep on the flight really messed up my sleep schedule and so jet lag from the time change has been made even worse, so I'm completely out of whack and its so much worse that it otherwise would have been because of the horrible flight. Also the food was gross and there wasn't enough of it. Even now, I don't think I have really communicated just how shitty this flight was. I was actually angry when I saw my seat upon boarding, and I'm still angry about it now."

Pros: "Another typical domestic flight. Nothing special. Pretzels were the only snack."
Cons: "No entertainment and nowhere to charge electronics."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Tiny plane, old. No leg space at all (I'm 5.5). Our connection before this flight was a 1 hour flight on a modern very spacious airplane, we wished we could've flown on the same plane for the 6+ flight to Paris."

Cons: "The Video on Demand service for movies, TV, and Music would skip every 10 to 20 seconds, jumping forward about 2 or 3 seconds at a time...making videos unwatchable. This was a problem for my seat, the two in front of me, and apparently many other seats on the flight."

Pros: "The plane wasn't full so that was soo nice."
Cons: "No TV's or outlets."

Pros: "Great flight & got in early"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "mas de media hora en la pista y 15 minutos mas para desembarcar"

Pros: "short"
Cons: "second security check at gate where they wouldn't allow me to bring water even though I was sick and bought it after 1st security also threw away my lotion that had gotten through first security"

Pros: "Finally taking off"
Cons: "Being stuck on the runway"

Pros: "AA customer service was great because we had missed our connection from Rome to Chicago. They got me and my daughters on the next available flight back to LAX with preferred seating that we had already paid for. They proactively checked my carry-on and the flight had all the individual entertainment amenities we were hoping for. The crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "There was nothing about this flight I didn't love."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing great"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."

Pros: "The flight was fast and mostly smooth, you can't control turbulence. The flight attendants were very friendly. Turned out to be a great trip."
Cons: "Nothing was bad overall. It was a very nice flight"

Pros: "Muy buena atención, avión, puntualidad"
Cons: "La silla no reclinaba bastante, no era muy cómoda"

Pros: "Great announcements by lead flight attendant."

Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Didn't ask for any food so can't rate that or entertainment"

Cons: "food"

Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "How much do United Engineers get paid? They can’t figure out how to make the last row recline? And why was this particular flight not able to let me select a seat?"

Cons: "Pretzels are getting old, anything new out there?"

Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"

Cons: "La película que pusieron fue realmente mala"

Pros: "Everything was fast"
Cons: "emtertinment screens in the front Row couldn’t turn Iran’s it was a midnight flight."

Pros: "nice plane. good service good job of getting our missing bags to us."
Cons: "delays on both ends. luggage did not arrive with us on either end"

Pros: "United is an OK airline, but their planes are old and not comfortable, entertainment is inexistent since it has old and bad screens and everything is paid, better to have your own tablet."
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable, airplanes too old, food is bad, crew members don't have the service as Asian or Middle east airlines."

Cons: "Waiting in the airport for 8 hours."

Pros: "The flight was full. I was upgraded to an exit row seat which was wonderful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Was excellent i like thank you"
Cons: "Nothing al contrario all excellent"

Pros: "Smiling attendants."
Cons: "After buying alcohol in Guatemala, at the duty free shop, the workers at the shop taped the small boxed jars in bubble wrap - not, I discovered in an official duty free bag. So security stopped me in Houston, I went back to the United counter where they were going to charge me $15 to send it to Sacramento. I didn't spend the money. Dissapointing."

Cons: "No one notified me that my trip was cancelled I found out myself and then had to rebook after waiting two and a half hours on hold for someone at United for assistance no one ever answered"

Pros: "No layover and the guy was nice to sit all 3 of us together."

Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."

Pros: "On time flight and no problems at all"
Cons: "The plane was having some air conditioner issues but the flight crew informed every one of the problem and what they were doing to fix it. They also came around with water very quickly for everyone to help cool them down. It was either push forward and wait for it to cool down once we got in the air or change planes, I was totally ok with how they handled it."

Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."

Cons: "Not entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful when I asked for water the lady told me I had to stand up and get it myself. I try to use the liegjt above my seat to call for another staff and this lady yelled NO No No you have to stand up and get it yourself. Also flight delays, i went on 4 flights with UA this time and they were terrible"

Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"

Cons: "Delayed flight"

Cons: "Legroom seemed so very tiny. My husband is fairly tall and long-legged, and has had knee trouble, The seat-back position of the chair in front made a normal sitting position impossible for him."

Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"

Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."

Cons: "Dead battery on plane. Delayed flight caused missed connection. No hotel voucher. Sit in terminal all night."

Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"

Cons: "Missed it due to delays"

Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."

Cons: "I had a really bad flight my flight was supposed to be a 8hrs flight n i got home 14hrs later also they forgot my bag n they delivered to me 3 days later i was really disappointed"

Cons: "Need to pay for movies. We need at least some free channels. Also would like to see the map of where the plane is, as it used to be few years ago"

Cons: "Free entertaiment. Not only pay"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the movie selection was expansive ."
Cons: "There was no seat available when I arrived so I had to wait outside the gate for a long time while the crew found one. There was a shortage of blankets. The food was not as palatable as I expected."

Cons: "Delayed, needed to change the second leg"

Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "The bar tender nice service the flights excelent"
Cons: "The service"

Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."

Cons: "No entertainment, food options, etc."

Cons: "After getting pushed back 3 times it finally got canceled and left me and 4 other strangers to drive back home so I wouldn't miss work. Another not being late to work in the military is not good to go."
