Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Free wifi and available free movies/shows were great."
Cons: "Seats too small, not very comfortable and no leg room."

Pros: "The flight was great and comfortable"

Pros: "Loved that we arrived early and were provided delightful snacks and complimentary drinks."

Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"

Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."

Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."

Pros: "Flight on-time. Comfortable seating. Great service. Able to pick seats and check-in early. Tailwind so arrived very early."
Cons: "Precious twins right behind us. Screamed the whole way home."

Cons: "Tge entertainment part could be much better."

Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"

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: "service of staff"
Cons: "No free in flight entertainment flight delayed by about 30 min Virgin planes far more comfortable"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Friendly"

Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi and entertainment was great."
Cons: "We left 4 hours later than expected. Didn't get home until the wee hours."

Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."

Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."

Cons: "Baggage crew was so careless in loading bags onto plane. There were two bags and a car seat that were thrown and missed the conveyer belt and fell off the side."

Pros: "Friendly and had great food options! The flight attendants were consistently available"
Cons: "The flight attendants all seemed really tired and did not have an exceptional energy or positive attitude. The announcements were very difficult to hear because the person speaking was mumbling."

Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."

Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."

Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"

Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."

Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."

Pros: "We have been traveling to Hawaii and especially Kauai for years. We love the fact that we don't have to fly into Honolulu and transfer to the Inter-Island Terminal with Alaska. This saves a lot of time and there is a lot less hassle. We upgraded to Preferred Seats which are in the Exit Rows and with the extra leg room, it is really nice especially if you have someone in the window seat. We don't eat anything on the plane because we usually head to our favorite restaurant once we land."
Cons: "The only thing I don't like is that the seats are not as padded as they use to be. With a 4-1/2 hr. flight, they become really hard. I am planning on taking a seat cushion with me the next time I fly."

Pros: "It was decent"

Cons: "no wifi"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Need free movies"

Pros: "Crew were friendlier than many other airlines"

Pros: "The aircraft was extremely clean. Crews were helpful and patient with passengers as they boarded and asked questions."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the flight was fast and smooth. Seating was great"
Cons: "Nothing needs to be corrected"

Cons: "Great crew and flight! Cheers!"

Pros: "the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "honesty. 29 minute flight took 3 hours. first they blamed it on waiting for luggage, then they likely realized there were no connecting fllights, so that excuse didn't work, then they were 'closing the cargo doors' for 45 minutes, then they had to de-ice as the plane had now sat for 4 hours instead of 45 minutes, had it left on time."

Pros: "Entertainment selection was nice."

Cons: "Traveled Comfort Plus. Looking really crowded in the main cabin."

Pros: "The pilot greeted us all on the jet way and then spoke to us. He even came to ask if everyone was ok before we left."

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Thermostat broke, wi fi didn’t work. Temp 60 degrees entire trip. Sucked"

Cons: "It was hot"

Pros: "Crews were friendly"

Cons: "My monitor isn’t really working after rebooted. And the audio hole wasn’t tight enough"

Cons: "It took longer to get from nyc to dc that it did Venice to NYC. Horrible....got home at 2am"

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."

Pros: "Delta as always top notch!"

Cons: "I had window seats on all flights and was boarded after those in middle/aisle seats 3 out of 4 times. Less legroom in the cheap seats. High whining pitch on speaker during announcements on last leg."

Pros: "Smooth and comfortable flight."

Pros: "All ok"

Pros: "That I arrived safe."
Cons: "My seat didnt recline my back was in a lot of pain so was my neck. After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."

Cons: "Sat in comfort+, bbut never offered any sort of snack. Not sure why it is considered an upgrade."

Pros: "The entire process was easy and seamless. The flight staff was professional and accommodating. Free liquor. Great food."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Professional appearance of flight staff accommodating and sincete"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No chicken sandwich."

Pros: "Short flight! Crew nice enough!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed slightly delayed"

Pros: "Short time and easy on and off boarding."
Cons: "One stewardess was in a mood but otherwise a very pleasant flight."

Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"

Pros: "Staff"

Pros: "Good staff, plenty of room, comfortable flight, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some passengers behind me didn’t get snacks and drink"

Cons: "They cancelled my ticket and did not inform me. Horrible exlefywith JustFly.com Beware of this organization"

Pros: "We were early, I had free Wifi, I love Delta!"

Pros: "i fell asleep until we arrive to STL."

Pros: "Everything was great, flight attendants were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "My daughter was stuck in SLC for 5 hours because there 1 cancelled flight and 1 delayed flight. It was very upsetting not knowing when she going to arrive in Denver."

Cons: "My flight got cancel two days in a row due to outrage power in atlanta."

Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"

Pros: "Very pleasant customer service, excellent bag delivery service."

Pros: "Quick boarding/unboarding."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow me on earlier flight, when there was room, without change fee"

Cons: "I don't like that I already completed this survey several days ago and have been receiving reminders to do so. I guess you don't have a good system in place for knowing who has and has not completed your surveys. That's too bad."

Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."

Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."

Pros: "Plane and flight were ok"
Cons: "The restaurant in CHS took 15 minutes to tell me they didn't have what I'd ordered thereby denying me the chance to a real meal all day. I wish they'd put real meals back on the flights"

Pros: "The crew from MSP to LSE onboard were incredibly pleasant and nice"
Cons: "They wanted me to check my bag from MSP to LSE. They weren't as nice as they could have been about it. But in the end I didn't need to check it."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly; service was good Trip was pleasant Plane was clean and comfortable."

Pros: "They had some weather in atlanta. So they drove us out to the runway and then we sat for 45 minutes with the engines off waiting to leave. I guess it is nice that they want to keep you safe. After missing our connector - they did put us up in a hotel overnignt. However we still had to pay extra for taxi back, parking an extra day at the airport, and extra meals. Oh - and the extra trip to detroit..."
Cons: "So after waiting 45 minutes on the tarmac - we left and headed to Atlanta. There we landed and waited because they had no gate for us. Then we finally got off the pane and ran to our connector which left without us. We were told they don't hold the plane for less than ten people. So the four of us don't matter. We sat and sat waiting...and then lost another day due to travel."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That when ever I try Delta there is a dramatic event that is mishandled and causes my flight to be extremely delayed or canceled. Promised to never take delta. I booked KLM and didn't know delta would be involved. Horrible."

Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Last row of a cramped 18 row plane with seats that did not recline!"

Pros: "Again, despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end."
Cons: "Again, Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with."

Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and very personable!"

Pros: "Crew excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was crowded!"

Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with the other flight"

Pros: "In the Day of cove it 19 is was fully packed"

Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."

Pros: "Smooth. We will definitely fly AA again."

Pros: "Boarding very well done."
Cons: "One of the crew was unhappy."

Pros: "Yes! The crew was amazing! The seat was perfect!"
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane."

Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about my flight to Richmond."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. I would have missed my connecting flight so rebooks through another midpoint. That flight was cancelled. Love AA! ☹️"

Cons: "Mejorar el espacio"

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: "The crew was nice. The food was pretty good. They were generous with the wine pours. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The legroom wasn't great on the flight from Amsterdam to Dallas. My plane from Dallas to Chicago actually had better legroom, which is ironic considering it was a much shorter flight. I would prefer more legroom on the longer trans-Atlantic flight. My baggage in Chicago was delayed over an hour."

Cons: "Wifi didn’t work."

Pros: "Nice personnel"
Cons: "Crowded"

Cons: "The seating was not good middle seat I like windows"

Pros: "Lots of leg room for such a small plane."
Cons: "AA did not update the flight status. My inbound flight was delayed due to weather but AA kept reporting the connecting flight as on time. I ended up making the connection with time to spare. If AA had reported the delayed departure I would have stopped for food. My bag did not make the connection."

Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Aircraft had no screen, old, uncomfortable"

Pros: "As expected, on time, predictable"
Cons: "As expected, no empty seats, crowded."

Pros: "Everything was very smooth and pleasant overall."

Pros: "On time, clean airplane"
Cons: "Boarding system very odd"

Pros: "I really like that they free inflight WiFi and entertainment. The seats are little more comfortable than other airlines. The service was great too."

Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The crew was pleasant. No water served due to turbulence"

Pros: "No major delays. Boarding and exiting was smooth. Got assigned a window seat near front"
Cons: "Small delay of 25 minutes"

Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"

Pros: "good price and a good route"
Cons: "This turned out to be a 'code share' flight operated by American Airlines. As such, neither Qantas nor American Airlines would allow me to buy premium seats so we could have extra leg room. They said the 'code share' blocks seat sales! Be ware Also found out that American Airlines does not serve meals on flights from Toronto to LAX. I was told they only serve meals on "international flights" but that I could buy a sandwich or snack. Unfortunately they only had 4 sandwiches on board , which sold within the first 2 rows of the plane!"

Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"

Pros: "Easy, smooth."

Pros: "I was truly surprised by how smooth the entire experience was on this flight. The crew was excellent and the flight was on time!"

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: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Seat was tiny. Felt crammed in there. I'm just 6ft tall, but couldn't even use the headrest...it was a back rest. No individual inflight entertainment on a 3 hour flight? I've had screens in front of me for hour long flights. Left 30 minutes late with no indication as to why. Just one of the most uncomfortable flights I've had in a long time."

Cons: "Poor choice and food"

Pros: "Comfortable first class seats for a regional airline, although no food or entertainment. Flight attendants were great, very friendly and they checked up on us often. On time departure and early arrival. American Airlines has always been great for me. Will be back"
Cons: "No food in first class, but it was only a 2 hr flight on a regional"

Pros: "Very simple process. Easiest trip ever. Baggage was easy. Nice staff."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Didn't like being grounded in Charleston because we were on a commuter flight while our AA connections was allowed to land in Charlotte and leave without us. Did not know AA operated flights receive priority at the airports over their inferior non-AA operated "partners". Will look for alternatives to AA in the future. Flight too short for a drink! No lodging because not their fault! Okay, storm not their fault, faulty policy is!"

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, seat was not clean."

Pros: "Slept through the entire flight, ground crew got me from gate to seat ASAP."
Cons: "Everything was good, so no problems to report here!"

Pros: "Special food is not proper"

Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."

Pros: "Good entertainment set up"
Cons: "Gross smelly bathrooms, only vegetarian meal options"

Pros: "Boarding was seamless."
Cons: "Food choices were horrible as was the food quality. Especially for an international flight. AA should be embarrassed that this is the level by which they operate. Entertainment systems were faulty. Many around me had to be restarted. And crew seemed tired and irritated. Willing to overlook the chairs that barely reclined but with everything else operating at a poor level, it was just the icing on the cake."

Pros: "Did reschedule our flight before we left which was helpful -Group 4 but at least we could get home."
Cons: "Paid for seats closer to front to get off for connecting flight. Waste of money as flight was delayed 90 minutes trying to fix the water system which the slow response maintenance crew never fixed. Ended up using Sani-wipes and had no coffee - seemed ok for a relatively short flight and half full plane. 90 minutes to make the decision to just go on resulting in many rescheduled flights."

Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."

Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "The airline personel (flight attendants, people at desk) seemed disorganized. When I hadn't been served a meal (apparently was overlooked as I was in a middle seat), it was almost impossible to get someone's attention, and then there was no acknowledgment or apology of the problem. Boarding was also disorganized; not as clear as it could be who was supposed to be getting on the plane when. Also leg room in coach is really cramped for a long-transatlantic flight."

Pros: "Flight in air"
Cons: "Take offs and landings"

Pros: "Overall, I'm pleased with BA."
Cons: "This flight didn't have the individual TV screens."

Pros: "On tome"
Cons: "2hour and 45minute layovet"

Cons: "They would not move me from next to the smokey 50'year old next to me. that's fine. But they told me I couldn't tell her to bathe and quit smoking. O well. I'm not gonna hold it against them for stinky old lady"

Pros: "I liked the smoothness of the flight"

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: "Plane was dirty"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "The Chicago airport is a nice airport to stay in when you're waiting for a new plane! Also the flight attendants did a very good job!!"
Cons: "The crew did a very good job of getting us on and off the plane and getting us on a new plane even though it was annoying and inconvenient!"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "All we got for food was a little bag of pretzels. Maybe not cheap out on that"

Pros: "Everything was really smooth sailing."
Cons: "Everything was great! The Charleston airport is small yet very nice inside"

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

Pros: "Plane broke. Gate change. Sat on the tarmac for a half hour to take off."

Pros: "The crew, was friendly and attentive to any and all needs."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Newark at 4:30. But it did not leave Charleston until 6:15 PM! This is not the 1st time this has happened with United. It seems that they are always some kind if “weather” delay with United flights arriving and departing Newark. Also, they are constantly cancelling flights to/from there. I would suggest looking at a different airline, perhaps one that cares more about the passengers iteneraries than the number of passengers."

Pros: "Prescreening"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "95% of my united flights are delayed. Today, they overbooked and asked for a volunteer. I did so and was offered a $1,500 compensation. Instead of 8:00, I would arrive at 11:00. I was very excited and patiently waited for the plane to board, so I coulD receive my new flight info. The flight is inevitably delayed, as it always is with this airline: I would have ended up missing my connection, so it seemed to work out well. However, they’re about to close the doors when the agent says “it’s not overbooked anymore” she gave me the option to so either get on that flight and wing it on my layover to find another flight, or go to Newark. But I needed to make a decision at that moment. The agent revoked the $1,500 because it was no longer overbooked and her demeanor immediately changed from The kind, accommodating agent she was when she needed me to give up my seat. She became short and rude. I got the last available seat because I was the last to board and was forced to check my bag because there was no more room. All because I was willing to change my travel plans. I get to my layover, and the earliest flight I could get would land at midnight with an additional layover. Oh! And the first class seat I was supposed to have on my second leg was not available. All of this was while I was seriously ill— throwing up, just wanting to be home. Honestly, I’ve never liked United. I constantly get over it, because it’s often the less expensive option. At this point, I am so sick of how they treat their customers, and their inability to depart on time. Last time I let them put me through this again."

Pros: "Prompt boarding, no delays,smooth flight. Overall a very good experience."

Pros: "Food was great and unexpected"

Pros: "There was nothing to like"
Cons: "The worst company ever!!!!!"

Cons: "Plane sucks. Too small and poor seats. Better snack selection."

Pros: "Great crew & very accommodating"

Pros: "Most of it"
Cons: "Purchase of snack! I only received a cracker and a soda!! Also, the movies were not free!! Really!!!!"

Cons: "Wifi access"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They comped everyone the direct tv access as an apology for the delay, but I'd rather be comped wifi."
Cons: "It ended up being a 5 hour delay. I would have been fine with it if they had told us up front that it was 5 hours, but instead it's 2 hours, then after an hour passes they tack on another hour and so on. It would be nice just to know it'll be a long wait, so we can leave and come back or reschedule our flight for the next day."

Cons: "Cramped space."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants brought a few people drinks and then disappeared leaving the rest of us thirsty"

Pros: "Timely take-off. Info from flight deck good in the beginning."
Cons: "However reporting of weather delay and the info about fuel stock on the aircraft could have been beter managed."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The whole flight seemed like a sales pitch. Pay to upgrade to our empty seats with a little more legroom. Pay to watch TV cross country (Delta, American, and all others are included). They did have more sales pitches on the screen for 6 hours though. Pay for snacks. Not even peanuts or pretzels anymore. They do give you a disgusting wafer. Flew back on Delta and didn't see any of this. Between this and their recent beating up of customers, no more United for me."

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."

Cons: "Overall United airport staff were not helpful and not very apologetic for delays and missed connections"

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

Pros: "Refreshments"
Cons: "More room. The plane was not full but we still were shoved in middle seat with no room for normal shoulders without over lapping. The seating areas are not comfortable. They put three seats where there is only room for two."

Pros: "Nothing"

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

Pros: "Easy boarding and on time . Pleasant staff. 0verall good flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Overall the flights were trouble free. The seats on the CRJ145 to Chicago were pretty confortable. United is the only airline that gives passengers a complete can of coke instead of just a cup. The snack was just so so."
Cons: "The seats on the plane from Chicago to Tucson were not comfortable. I could feel the hard bottom."

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: "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."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delayed several hours waiting on a part to fix the engine. The aircraft was too warm. I sweated the whole flight."

Pros: "Length of flight."
Cons: "We were kept in the airport for hours on end without being informed our flight was cancelled. Something was wrong with the plane and then by the time it was fixed the crew had times out. We were given no information, the delays just kept increasing and increasing. We had to fly out the following morning which made things very inconvenient for getting rides from the airport and getting to work on time."

Cons: "Barely enough room to hoist your baggage in the overhead bins"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and polite."
Cons: "No leg room, only ranch snack mix."

Pros: "That it got me from point a to b"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Being able to leave on my desired day."
Cons: "This would have been my first time on this airline ans I was excited going into it with ano open mind. However as I was getting ready to head to the airport, my flight was canceled and they rebooked for another flight that would leave the next day with a 3 to 4 hour layover. I was frustrated with the flight selected and therected seemed to be no effort into suiting me with an equivalent flight in which I purchased, which was a direct flight. I spoke to a reap that found a flight on another airline, but it still was not a direct flight in which I requested. For this being my first impression I was not impressed!"

Pros: "Friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No wifi on small plane"

Pros: "Staff was courteous, and explained situation clearly."
Cons: "After booking my flight two months prior and checking in 12 hours earlier, I was not allowed to board the plane because United had overbooked. Thus forcing me to fly to Charlotte then Newark at a 5 hour delay. There was also no drink for those in my row during a two hour flight from Charlotte to Newark."

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."

Cons: "Significant delays, minimal information."

Pros: "Very good"

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?)."
