Airline reviews

Pros: "Time of flight is not delayed and arrival time is even ahead of the estimated time."

Cons: "Auxiliary generator broken so plan got hot very quickly. Flight was 2.5 hrs delayed due to another mechanical failure. And then once we were in air they generously notified us that the WiFi was broken. Utter garbage."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "We were sitting in the plane on the tarmac for 3 hours waiting to take off. The crew did a very poor job announcing what was going on."

Pros: "Customer Service Agents and the crew did a great job."
Cons: "I didn’t like having to pay $10 to use a Diggie Playy to watch a movie. Virgin Air had them at no charge."

Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."
Cons: "I was shocked that there wasn't an in-flight meal, or at least more of a snack. It's a 7 hour flight from Chicago!"

Pros: "Overall a great experience"

Pros: "Everyone on my flight were just great"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Alaska never disappoints us. We lucked out with a 1/2 full flight from Chicago, so had lots of room. Each of us got a window. Friendly crew and desk staff. Timely return of checked luggage. All good."

Pros: "Nice and friendy crew, and it seems I can always hear the pilots on Alaska. On other airlines, they are hard to hear. Alaska pilots were pleasant to listen to, as well. Comfortable seats and good leg room at back of plane."
Cons: "My seat was full of crumbs when I boarded, hair was sticking out of the magazine in front of me. I wish there was some cleaning/disinfecting of the plane prior to a new flight boarding. It's flu season and that's exactly what I got 2 days after flying home. I gave the food and entertainment 1 star as I didn't use either. Should be a NA option."

Pros: "The flight attendants went above and beyond!"

Pros: "I was in first class so that's the better experience. I would have been even unhappier in coach."
Cons: "Seat, despite being first class, was not comfortable I asked for a blanket before takeoff and was told there aren't any on board. No blankets for an 8 hr red eye??? No pillow either. Flight attendants never asked if I wanted another beverage after initial service. It was an 8 hr flight. The first class meal was a tiny cheese plate. I was starving. For a $900 1 way ticket, I expect more of this airline Flight attendants seemed like they didn't want to be there. Wasn't feeling the love. it was a 12:30am flight. We are all tired, but c'mon. Smile a little."

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: "Very friendly crew. The airline also offers a little more leg room than other airlines"
Cons: "Small crowded terminal at O'Hare made boarding seem chaotic"

Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."

Pros: "The crew is efficient, friendly, and professional."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi, and the boxes of food leave something to be desired."

Pros: "Flying is difficult because it is so crowded but this is just part of travel. Alaska Airlines does a great job of getting us where we are going, on time."

Pros: "Free movies!"

Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."

Cons: "need more space"

Pros: "We arrived half an hour early! Bags on time."

Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"

Pros: "Captain's flight commentary good Crew fine. Plane fine."
Cons: "slow, untimely, disorganized boarding Couldn't get seat assignment online or at airport."

Pros: "Was seated by a very nice couple."
Cons: "The plane was crowded. I was very upset to find that on a 6 hour flight I not only had to pay for entertainment I didn't even get to finish watching what I paid for. Was really pissed that on a 6 hour flight I had to starve because you also charge for food! Didn't have a credit card only cash that was refused so I was unable to eat."

Pros: "Great service and extremely friendly staff. Brand new plane. More economy legroom then other carriers"

Pros: "I love the leg room on Alasks flights, and I'm always impressed by the professionalism and respect Alaska employees show to their customers."

Pros: "We loved the crew on board our no frills flight. But we remember fondly those days when planes had more legroom, meals were complimentary, and in flight movies did not require rental of a player!"

Cons: "Who ever made my reservation did not put in seat numbers is now my wife and I are not sitting together. Also Alaska airline charges for everything. So they suck."

Pros: "I am a tall woman and rarely ride in an airplane without my kneecaps brushing the seat in front of me in coach. Not sure what Alaska Airlines is doing differently, but I had knee-room to spare on my flight to Seattle!"
Cons: "Upon our arrival in Seattle, it seemed that the gate wasn't quite ready for us and we spent a restless few minutes "getting docked" for departure."

Pros: "My flight out of Chicago was delayed for about 3 hours and was no way I was going to catch my connecting flight in Seattle. I called Alaska airlines customer service and they were able to get me rescheduled on two new flights from Chicago to Fairbanks the very next day!! Excellent!!"

Cons: "This flight was first delayed, then not listed on the reader board. Then the flight added a stop over in Seattle for the the only reason that the crew was maximizing their allowed time to work. This delayed arrival at final destination. They could have brought on a fresh crew in Chicago but they did not do that."

Pros: "Friendly, caring, and knowledgable staff"
Cons: "No hot food choice on 6+ hour flight."

Pros: "Boeing plane was so comfortable and modern and new."

Pros: "More legroom than expected."
Cons: "Movies were not free."

Cons: "I got a "faux" window seat and felt very claustrophobic and misled."

Pros: "The crew and passengers were friendly. The most fun I've had in a plane in a long time!"
Cons: "Nothing! It was great!"

Pros: "On time & easy"
Cons: "Nothing I remember"

Pros: "I was given a surprise upgrade after a very long week. It was amazing! The flight crew was fun and they took excellent care of me. Thank you so much."

Pros: "Polite staff, awesome service."
Cons: "We would enjoy free wifi even if we can't have free movie streaming."

Cons: "I cancelled my flight, and although I purchased flight insurance, still ended up having to do a bunch of paperwork and losing money. After experiencing cancellations on other flights, this was by far the worst. The $150 cancellation charge on Alaska is unbelivable and the insurance KAYAK provided through Allianz was awful."

Pros: "Food!"

Pros: "The team working the flight was awesome. The pilot was funny and made sure that our flight started on the right foot. All of the flight attendants were super attentive and very kind. I couldn't have asked for better service."
Cons: "The flight itself was one of the roughest I've ever experienced. Lots of turbulence and a not terribly smooth landing."

Pros: "Seats comfortable"
Cons: "Huge delay with little communication. Waited on plane close to 2 hours before leaving gate. Flight very rough. Landing terribly rough. Crew seemed angry. Cleaning of plane minimal between flights. Did not recycle. Downstairs loading area in Chicago was a little unnerving"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Just had a super delayed flight and lost one of my luggages."

Pros: "This was my first time flying with Alaska Airlines and it was a smooth flight. I loved it!!"

Pros: "It is pretty and cool plane.. :) and I like it."

Pros: "Smooth, direct flight that arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Not much room in coach. Felt tighter than other flights I've been on, both in width of the seats and in legroom."

Pros: "There were no hot food options"

Pros: "The staff on the flight were great! They were really nice, and always asking if I needed anything."

Pros: "Excellent service and great landing."

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

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

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: "It was late"

Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."

Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."

Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"

Pros: "I was with my friend"
Cons: "Delayed 12+ hours"

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: "Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."

Pros: "I was given a complimentary upgrade."

Pros: "The crew and pilot were absolutely amazing."
Cons: "This is my 3rd delta flight in a row that has been delayed. I understand these things happen, just extremely frustrating."

Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."

Pros: "My flight was great. Boarding was easy and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I needed to run real fast to the connection flight and gladly got there on time."

Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"

Pros: "Great service, nice agent friendly"

Pros: "Very friendly and professional gate agent and flight attendant"

Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"

Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"

Cons: "Layover"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."

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."

Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."

Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."

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."

Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

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: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"

Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"

Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of 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: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."

Pros: "The in-flight service was good."

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"

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

Pros: "Delta's free in-flight wi-fi for entertainment (movies, tv, music) on your own device is a big plus. Not so easy to find (there's sparse information in their magazine or seat-back brochure), but once you find it there's a wealth of options."

Pros: "Small plane. Very good service. Did not suffer through the crazy multi level boarding calls that some airlines have. No super secret airline clubs that board first. Flying into the Marine terminal is the best part of the trip."
Cons: "The wifi didn't seem to work at all on the plane."

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "Flight did not leave on time. Weather conditions were not a factor."

Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."

Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."

Pros: "Everything was on time!"

Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"

Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."

Pros: "Staff extremely friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."

Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."

Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."

Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."

Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."

Pros: "I did not have a seat! Waiting for people to give up their seats!"

Cons: "Poor entertainment, wifi option. Overhead lighting was on entire flight. AA flight attendants were over it. A bad experience"

Cons: "Old plane with no plug-ins and outdated media."

Cons: "The plane was very outdated and the food was poor. Flight attendants were very rude."

Pros: "it was a reasonably priced flight, so I guess having to put up with the delay and a cramped plane is what you should expect"
Cons: "the fact that we were delayed for over 3 hours (mechanical? then switched plane). The plane itself was really cramped - I realize you have to put up with that on domestic flights, but international, really??? American should figure out other ways to cut costs."

Pros: "finally made it to our destination"
Cons: "our flight was delayed 3 hours, they finally changed planes, and the one we took for a trans-Atlantic flight was cramped, poor service on the plane, all-in-all an uncomfortable flight - I've had much better on other carriers, and won't be likely to use American Airlines again :("

Pros: "Not much to like, plus we were late"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no in-seat or personalized entertainment."

Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."

Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."

Pros: "Nice head rest (although it did not stay bent at angle, so could actually rest against it)."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath."

Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"

Pros: "Food on time. Good Food. Good Entertainment like watching movies. Top priority for Diabetes or any other patients."
Cons: "Little guidelines for new comers especially while changing the flights."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"

Pros: "The American Air crew was great very attentive and they pass out free drinks"
Cons: "The 787 is tight and when the fight is 7 plus hours it tends to ware on you"

Pros: "All the movies"
Cons: "Legroom"

Pros: "Very nice plane with a good entertainment system."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed almost angry. Banging trays,. bumping carts into nearly every row and even skipping some rows on drink service."

Cons: "The flight left almost 6 hours late, and the delay was not directly due to weather. Another flight from and to the same airports left as scheduled 3 hours before this one finally left."

Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Pros: "Crew was excellent but it was literally the most uncomfortable plane ride I have ever been. There was even an empty seat in the middle and I couldn't sleep at all. The seats were super shOrr and the headrests sucked"

Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."

Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"

Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"

Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."

Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."

Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"

Pros: "Seats had enough room. Inhad been worred they'd be too close since iwas the middle of a 5 person row."
Cons: "The boarding was terirble. We were over and hr late take off and it was very hot boarding and it took a long time. Also the air was so dry i got a nose bleed."

Pros: "I was served breakfast and lunch/dinner"
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an airport is near impossible"

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"

Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"

Cons: "overcharges"

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: "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: "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: "While going inside the flight they told me there is no room for Carryon and gave me ticket to book the luggage. When I went inside the Flight there is lot of room to carryon's, why they have to lie this BS."

Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"

Pros: "We'll coordinated."

Pros: "I liked the Lufthansa flights using Airbus Aircraft the entertainment system is the best."
Cons: "The entertainment system on the boeing planes is not necessarily the best, the screens are smaller, the selection of movies is not upto date and even Live TV does not work"

Cons: "See above comments."

Pros: "In flight entertainment was great!"

Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."

Cons: "The seats are tiny. If you drio something, you can't reach down to pick it up. The food was burnt. The app isn't downloadable in China. The overall experience makes me not want to ever fly United again."

Cons: "Entertainment and food could have been better."

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: "Excellent as expected."

Pros: "Good entertainment for a long flight."
Cons: "A power jack could come handing."

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: "The flight overall was great, easy to board and de-board, and a smooth process from start to finish."
Cons: "Connecting to the in-flight wi-fi to watch movies and tv shows was nearly impossible."

Pros: "Loved that it was an empty flight"

Pros: "The service was good"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."

Cons: "Two hour delay for start of engines.. Not enough chichen and pasta was not good"

Pros: "The flight was a head of schedule and very smooth."
Cons: "It was freezing cold. I was wearing a sweater and was freezing."

Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."

Cons: "i missed my flight because my flight left Toronto late"

Pros: "Pilot was very happy and friendly! Very informative throughout flight."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 40 times by other passengers and flight attendants."

Pros: "not a damn thing"
Cons: "Weather delays are a typical part of travel. What's not typical are 5+ hour delays and sitting on the tarmac and watching your connection take off without you. First Class seats morphed into Economy center seats the next day, with nary a hotel room in sight. Thanks for nothing."

Cons: "The flight was very hot and uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This flight never happened it continued to get canceled and canceled!!"

Cons: "We got on board, waited 20 minutes. Capt said it was a bad reverser, and we were waiting on paperwork for 15 minutes. Long story short, they make us leave the plane after 2.5 hours. Then we wait in the airport for another 2.5 hours. I missed my connection and spent 10 hours in Chicago."

Pros: "The flight attendant finally took care of it after I complained a couple of times."
Cons: "That you changed our seats, and, that there was no room in any of the overhead bins. So, the flight attendant told me that I needed to fight my way through the people coming toward me back up the aisle and check every overhead bin all the way back up to see if there was room for my one suitcase. Others had brought more than one bag up there. Finally they checked my one carry on bag. The ride was also really bumpy, worst that we've ever experienced. But that was due to weather conditions."

Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."

Pros: "Nice clean plane, very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The hour delay."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic despite the entertainment system wasn't working"
Cons: "The entertainment and wifi was nonfunctional for the 8 hr flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Entertainment systems did not function during the trip-a HUGE disappointment when the cost of the flight was over $1100 per person."

Pros: "Pre-check with United"
Cons: "Did not get connecting flights boarding pass from the beginning. Short connection time - was very stressful"

Cons: "Couldn't reserve/request a seat. Assigned to me About 1.5 hours prior to boarding. Had to wait Around the gate. Should have told me I would not have any choice. Could have walked around. Got a middle seat. It was a long flight."

Pros: "The flight attendant was great! Pleasant, polite and professional!"
Cons: "The flight from ORD to ABE was on a plane with expired maintenance logs or inspections? We were delayed 2 hours in arriving for what seemed like a pilots lax in paperwork. But what does a customer expect from an airline who knows they that customer by the balls?"

Pros: "We were tossed into the last row; I had no leg room and was constantly being bumped by people using the rest rooms. As a result it was a sleepless flight."

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "Great boarding at ORD."
Cons: "My seat"

Pros: "Movie selection and delivery/access was very good"
Cons: "Seat legroom is insufficient. There was a water leak in the ceiling that dripped cold Wster on me for a portion of the trip."

Cons: "The flight was late by 5 hrs due to mechanical problems. The gate crew was confused about what to do and we ended up with several deboardings and boardings. Food was terrible. The entertainment system did not work."

Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."

Pros: "the flight attendant crew was super nice throughout the entire flight."
Cons: "the tvs weren't working for the all the seats, and the food was not very tasty."

Pros: "Flight itself was good. Nice flight attendants. Funny pilot."
Cons: "The lady at desk to board the flight made me check my carry on. I had assumed it was because the plane was full, but when I got on the plane there were more than adequate spots to stow more bags. There was a compartment across from my seat that remained open the entire flight. While I completely understand the need to check extra luggage when the plane is full, I was very upset when I saw it was not. I intentionally fly with a carry on for the convenience, and to be inconvenienced for absolutely no reason made me not want to fly with this company again for fear it could happen again in the future."

Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and organised the connection between two flights very well under pressing circumstances when there was only 15 min between the flights and the boarding gates being in opposite ends of a big Munic airport"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 h, so we had to run through Munic airport for connected flight. Good sport, but rather tiresome."

Cons: "8 channels of looped shows and movies. Too long a flight for that...and then have to use my device to watch on the free part of the wifi.so no battery left. For this price? And I booked through Lufthansa but flew United. Bad form."

Cons: "The plane was tiny and the seats were tiny. Could not carry on a bag and it took a long time to get the bag back from having been gate checked."

Pros: "the japanese speaking flight attendant was exellent! she was very observant to passengers needs. i was also pleasantly surprised by the entertainment system."
Cons: "there was a flight delay due to maintenance, which was inconvenient."

Pros: "The trip had minimal turbulence. The landing was smooth."
Cons: "-The 767 was old. -It did not have any power ports for my laptop or cell phone. -The interior was old and dated, reminiscent of the 1980's. -The TV screen for entertainment seemed to be smaller than a Samsung Note 5. -The seats are unreasonably narrow and not comfortable. -I had an isle seat and my shoulder width is literally wider than the seats. -Every time the isle cart went by, it hit my left shoulder. -The seats in general seating are too small and were cramped. -God forbid if we had to egress out of the plane. -There were no adjustable head rests, like other airlines have. -The Flight Attendant for my section DID NOT make me feel like I was a valued customer, even though I paid over $1500 for flight. -She scolded me for asking "Why," when she TOLD me that I needed to sit in one seat, even though the seat next to me was vacant. She literally treated me like a child. - NOT COOL. Overall, in comparison to my last international flight, I WOULD NOT recommend United. I feel like I paid too much for my experience with United. Aer Lingus has better/newer aircraft, better cabin crew, better entertainment selections to include music and a selection of movies to watch at your convenience, more comfortable seats, provide a better environment, and a better value for your experience. Aer Lingus was also cheaper. So if you are reading this, please shop around if you are considering United to fly."
