This is one of the better domestic carriers. I seem to always get a little more customer service. They are easy to do business with.

No entertainment

Flight attendant in first class could be more friendly .. she looked annoyed throughout the flight and didn’t seem like she wanted to be. Need work in the customer service department. Same for my outbound flight. Otherwise the flight was on time and got to where I needed to go.

The food definitely could be better the flight attendant nicer, then Lisbon to Paris the had the nerves to charge for snacks. Lisbon customers service at the airport for the most part terrible, upiddy, rude,. I waited at lease 2 or more in custom lane trying to get throught security, miss my flight to Paris it was hot, to cheap to give customers AC while you wait in long lines. The worst experience avoid Lison Portugal, they charge for a rapid covid test 275.00 when I had a CDC shot record I've had both my shots rip off. And lost my luggage.

Alaska Airlines staff members are super friendly and helpful!

Pros: "Ease of travel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Easy to board, fast arrival"

Cons: "Un cafe"
Pros: "yes"

Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Timing of the flight was always good. Efficient flying. Crew was super helpful too even when passengers were a bit too much."
Cons: "A little more room."
Pros: "The communication was impeccable. The flight was smooth and efficient. Everything about this experience, from booking it, to getting home was great."

Cons: "Pilots were 50 mins late"
Pros: "Great crew, a lot of space in the aircraft"
Cons: "More entertainment"
Pros: "It’s not American, United, or Delta."
Cons: "The Gogo Internet access was much worse than non-existent, causing me to pay and waste literally hours trying to get a single flight search done on [This idiotic form is broken—the search engine that starts with “Kaya”], and now I have to waste more time and effort to demand a refund from Gogo."
Cons: "Premium charges to change seat First checked is $30"
Pros: "Fast, smooth flight"
Cons: "I gave food a one star because there is none. N/A"
Pros: "After the purchase, Alaska is using Virgin planes, which are very nice - comfy, well appointed, and with the fun lighting."
Cons: "This is the second time in 3 flights with Alaska that they’ve bumped my seat at boarding time from a nice aisle near the front to a window near the restrooms. I’d gladly have volunteered if asked, but they didn’t ask. This most recent flight, the beverage service was extremely slow - it took nearly an hour for them to get down to my relocated seat. By then, it was nearly time to land, so I barely had time to finish. I’ve noticed the cups are smaller now as well. I usually fly rather than drive for the holidays, I think I’m done with flying."
Pros: "Everything went smooth and was great besides the boarding."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take quite quite awhile, not sure what the deal was but once we were boarded they kicked it into high gear"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Delayed departure. I was offered drinks at first then last third of flight was left with dirty glass too long."
Pros: "The staff and crew were fabulous! The choice for viewing movies and/or TV shows was wonderful! I'm looking forward to flying with them again very soon!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The plane was on-time. Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were very helpful. They helped passengers get to their seats, find places for their luggage. Entertainment options were good. Bags arrived within a reasonable amount of time"
Cons: "I wish they would provide more food options or at least stock a few more of the ones they have. The fruit and cheese tray sells out early making it a long flight without real food. I don’t consider chips and cookies lunch food."
Pros: "Very faster arrived."
Cons: "No meals."
Pros: "Excellent take off and landing."
Cons: "They had ressigned seats and put me in the middle of a full row, in front of the emergency exit, so the seat would not recline. The head rest was made for a tall man, and its position made me lean forward until my neck hurt. The movie selections were good, but the earphone jack didn't work well enough to hear the dialog. They let me move to another seat and the earphones didn't work there either. After trying two different earphones they concluded the jack was bad. Also the seats were smaller and there was less leg room than the Alaska flight going out."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, comfy seats, plenty of overhead storage, and really friendly crew."
Cons: "I understand having a bigger food selection may not be easy but maybe a little cheaper would be nice"
Pros: "Liked the seats. Liked the service. The food on my previous flight HX60 was better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Other than that, nothing to complain about. Like I said, ordinary flight."
Pros: "Promptness."
Cons: "Only beverages. Perhaps a little something, like nuts"
Cons: "I was forced to check my bag Right before boarding the plane. And then when I landed my back was lost. Let me also add that I do you like Alaska air and I am a member however I may think twice before booking again with them."
Cons: "When two tickets are purchased together I expected seats to be assigned together as well. Apparently this doesn’t happen when booking through a third party site. My husband and I were assigned seats late and in different rows."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Flight was over booked by about 15 people. Barely got a seat, and it was the middle seat in the very back of the plane. I bought the ticket and picked a seat...it shouldn’t be that hard to be able to board the plane and get a seat. Will likely not fly with them again. Don’t want to risk not being able to get home when I need to."
Pros: "The food order concept"
Cons: "No food, not even snacks, despite the long fligjt"
Pros: "It was excellent. They even waived the baggage fee!"
Cons: "Nil"
Cons: "We have been sitting in the plane after landing one hour ,because no gate available"
Pros: "My chair was broken the entire plane and there was no where to move me to. I was uncomfortable the entire flight"
Cons: "Update your planes"
Pros: "First time on Alaska. Great experience."
Pros: "Everything was great! This was my first time flying Alaska Air and I could not have had a better trip! Everything ran according to schedule, I was comfortable during the flight, slept the entire time, staff was great!"
Cons: "The woman making announcements did not specifically announce the duration of the flight as we were departing. I was able to figure it out on the map option on the screen, but I would've liked to hear it verbally. Only suggestion I would have is an announcement on the plane for which baggage claim belt our luggage would come out of. I may not have heard it though, if there was an announcement. It was not difficult at all to figure out once I was in the baggage claim area, however if this was known while we were still on the flight, I prefer to know this info!"
Pros: "Nice movies Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"
Cons: "There was no way to change journey date, excepting by additionally paying almost twice the fare amount as change fee plus difference in fares between travel dates. So was forced to miss the flight and forfeit fare amount."
Pros: "This was a completely booked flight during Xmas week, and the flight was delayed an hour. Alaska Air did a great job of accommodating these difficulties. When I checked in online they had a notice asking if we would volunteer to check bags for free because they knew overhead space would be tight. Once the flight was underway they announced they'd been able to reroute to save us some of that time. And the Alaska Air/Horizon connecting flight was also delayed, most likely to accommodate this large flight. The aircraft is wonderful--the plugs for devices at every seat plus free entertainment piped to our devices really helps to pass the time."
Cons: "Person announcing the boarding needs some enunciation lessons. She spoke too quickly and on top of (or below) other announcements and even kept talking when she was doing something beneath the podium, so no chance to read lips."
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Wasn’t given the opportunity to choose my seat and was put in last row."
Pros: "Seats had slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seriously a coffee pot running hot water kept us on the ground another 45 minutes to an hour, very frustrating. There was one flight attendant Jordan that just made me uncomfortable she seemed rude and short even with her co workers. The food looked like it wasn't worth it on flight. Over all this experience made me second guess booking through Alaska and I'm going with the rei credit card instead too."
Cons: "1st, promised to email a $100 travel voucher for an inconvenience in the reservation, but never did! 2nd, signage misguided us to take train to wrong terminal in airport, causing us to miss flight! 3rd, successfully changed first leg of our flight, but gave us a connection that was impossible to make! (20 minutes, but they "forgot" we had to go through customs!) 4th, double-charged us for our bags for second leg of flight! 5th, said they could do nothing about the impossible second leg of flight, claiming that their partner airline (Virgin) should resolve it, and Virgin then said the same thing and sent us back to Alaska! 6th, I discovered that Alaska reps wrote lies in the notes in the computer to try and cover their back! 7th, meanwhile, between the two companies, they wasted so much time that the next flight passed and we had to wait until next day for a flight! 8th, were not willing to cover a hotel, leaving us to sleep in airport! We are currently in airport still waiting for flight, so this sad testimony to Alaska Air may still get even worse! We'll see."
Pros: "My girlfriend and I had another 6 hours to bond on our drive home from Medford to San Francisco. And I got home way earlier than I would have if we flew."
Cons: "Because our flight from Medford to Portland was cancelled without notice, I never boarded a plane on Sunday. I rented a car and drove back instead. The cost is almost a wash with what Alaska is reimbursing me, but we'll see what I get refunded since their customer care department is closed on Sundays."
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."

I had to cancel my trip because of COVID delta. My brother who I visiting got scared and didn’t want me to visit. I paid for insurance that you provided through your site. Allianz hidden in terms that canceling because of COVID fear isn’t covered. I was never offered insurance through delta on your site witch I would have bought. Delta isn’t even giving me a credit for a flight and keep my money. What a scam and I’m very disappointed in the services I received.

Really accommodating staff, and on flight amenities. I would fly with Delta again.

Pros: "I would like to have ore of a grace period to check baggage."
Pros: "Delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and took good care of the passengers"
Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "Smelled like poop the entire flight. Actual poop in the lavatory."
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Pros: "The crew WAS amazing!"
Cons: "Not a thing! It was perfect"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "In one hour flight we could have some drinks and food. Snacks... can’t believe they don’t have any food/alcohol"
Cons: "More comfortable than I expected for a 6 hour flight. 757 was quite spacious."
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delta always delivers!"
Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Pros: "great crew"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the service on Delta. The entire process was better than what i've come to expect on airlines. My flight attendant was Kate, and she was awesome - super friendly, professional, thoughtful."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "If offering free WiFi to Amex platinum card holders it needs to work f"
Cons: "Fix it"
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Pros: "Transfer f from first flight leg"
Cons: "Food and the 757 lay out"
Pros: "Snacks that include a dairy free option like the kind granola bar"
Cons: "We were delayed like crazy."
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."
Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."
Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."
Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid..."
Cons: "Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade."
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"
Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "We took off and landed early. The crew was wonderful and the snacks were exactly what I needed."
Cons: "We landed early and were stuck waiting on the plane for an hour and fifteen minutes for a gate to open."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Tv wouldn't work and delay that wasn't weather related and the food was awful"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Both flights were on-time, no gate changes. Staff was friendly enough, and seat back entertainment was appreciated. Everything went as you always hope it does for flights!"

It was hot af. The flight attendant was incredibly rude, in addition to waking me up 2x to keep getting things out of the bin over my seat without a courtesy apology or anything. I hate flying American.

Pros: "The Crew was amazing The seat was not comfortable at all Had a broken back rest"
Cons: "Fix the seat Broken back rest aren’t comfortable"
Pros: "Before boarding, which was late, the crew called me to the podium twice to ask me to give up my aisle seat which I had pre-booked, each time losing me my seat in the crowded waiting area. The flight arrived in SFO two hours late."
Cons: "The flight could have been on time and the boarding crew could have been considerate."
Pros: "The crew serving the plane didn't look like they wanted to be there. Somewhat abrasive. The entertainment was poor and not very easy to access through your mobile, Iphone and Ipad. If you want to provide a better customer experience, equip all your planes with seats video screens. Passengers on a 4 to 5 hours flight don't want to have to figure out what do to watch a movie or TV. I don't fly American that often, but wanted to give it a try to see the difference between you and the other airlines. I have to say that on the return segment (ORD to SFO), I was not that impressed."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and everything about the flight made it feel like how flying is meant to feel!"
Cons: "With a long flight seat space is always a concern, I was fortunate to have an empty seat next to me so I was comfortable, if had someone next to me I know that comfort level would have dropped considerably."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "I have an injury so I paid extra for 'extra leg room" but there's a wall between economy and business class so very little legroom. My leg was hurting a lot and the flight attendants had to find me a different seat because I could not stay there for 5 hours. I wouldn't have paid extra for this seat."
Pros: "The crew was amazing but I was on a United flight since American was late leaving Athens. AA booked me on a later flight from Chicago to San Francisco on United. They issued separate inside seats for my wife and I. United showed me their kindness by putting us together in economy Plus."
Cons: "I don't blame American for being late but putting me on a United flight and splitting up my wife and I seperate seats was a little under the bar."
Pros: "On time. Fast boarding. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "almost an hour late - and no explanation. First class was about equal to Jet Blue regular class but without seat power."
Pros: "The seats were decent for a domestic flight. Everything was timely."
Cons: "More food. Better entertainment."
Cons: "if the crew/flight wasn’t filled with racist tendencies that forced a black man and his partner to take a new flight because his “tone” wasn’t to their liking when he responded to accidentally being the wrong seat, costing us 90 minutes at least of delays because they deplaned us all when all."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and thoughtful."
Cons: "Seating is too tight. Hard to believe that in 2019, major airlines still have seats without any electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and it went smoothly!"
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and I appreciated the chance to pre-board with my toddler! Thank you."
Cons: "Delays, seats are cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."
Cons: "Never made it to Chicago, rerouted through Washington DC."
Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Pros: "Eventually, the actual flight was fine."
Cons: "Initially delayed by 3hours (mechanical) which was American Eagle couldn’t get their “bucket of bolts” to Springfield, MO on time so we missed our flight out of Charlotte to Barcelona. Then we were rerouted through Chicago, but lost our first class seats and were bumped back to coach. This was after I had bought first class tickets for the entire trip only to be told 3 months before leaving that AA decided to switch planes on our domestic flight so there’s were no first class seats. THEN, in Chicago we tried to get first class seats on British Airways which would have been fine but After being sent to another terminal (after the bus to that terminal had stopped running) we were turned back because British Airways wouldn’t accept the boarding pass that AA had issued us. Now, having to go back to the first terminal to DISCUSS all this, we miss that flight and wind up stuck in Chicago for another 24 hours. Then, that flight was delayed by 3 hours, so we lost a day and a half of our vacation."
Pros: "Crew was very nice Flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Mediocre snack/meal"
Cons: "Lateness, seat comfort and gate checking a duffel bag"
Cons: "headphone jack defective but more importantly the SFO arrival gate not available for over 45 minutes...."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I was traveling today with my daughter, who is 6 months pregnant, my 3 1/2 & 18 month old grandsons, my husband & son-in law on an international flight from Chicago to Manchester. I was very disappointed a 757 was used for an international flight! No attempt was made by staff to accomodate our family with a extra seat for the infant, even though there were a large number of rows with empty middle seats (4 of which were directly behind them!) The 1st indication of the beginning of the NIGHTMARE was when the plane arrived in Chicago and overshot the gate, this caused almost an hour delay! (We heard our crew saying "oops" while looking out the window at the plane arriving & then again when they were discussing it would have been faster if the plane had used a different method to get to the gate again.) This was then followed by a mechanical problem with a frozen water valve, requiring us to be de-iced x2! Then we started to taxi out and again had to return because of a hydraulic problem that required repair. I think we were delayed almost 3.5 hours. The crew did bring a round of water during the onground delays, and offered free drinks later in the flight. The icing on the cake was not getting the stroller back at the gate because there were no baggage handlers. I can't tell you how much FUN that was trying to corral a toddler & 3yr old with all our carry-on bags while getting thru customs! Did I mention in our haste to get off that plane we overlooked my daughter's winter maternity coat in the overhead! May be time to switch to the Friendlier Skies of United for our UK travel!"
Pros: "Quiet flight"
Cons: "Very old plane with zero on board entertainment. Seats in front of exit row barely recline."
Pros: "When the lettuce looks like the salad you forgot to put away last night you know it has been around and about too long! Pity!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I chose a package on the cheap flights that has a left hand side for choosing number of baggage which invariably inreases fare depending on the number of baggage and i choose 2 and paid for 2 baggage but the ticket came with 1 baggage and i contacted both by phone call, email and your website but did not get any fsvourable response. Had to pay again at the airport for the extra bag. This is highly unfair."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly and the entertainment was quite good. New movies, international films, and games kept me happy from boarding to landing."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about really. I thought that the flight attendants did a great job."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"
Cons: "The airline "randomly" selected me for extra security. Even though I have TSA pre-check I was jostled around, sent to multiple security lines without any reasoning and the local Chicago TSA and airport staff didn't seem to know what to do. Once it was figured out I was subjected to what was essentially a cavity search. Again I HAVE TSA-pre-check but apparently that means nothing if an airline flags you. It was an extremely upsetting experience but you were in a situation of either agree to the invasive search or get stranded over 1000 miles from home. I will NEVER fly Iberia again after a cancelled flight and being stranded in the wrong country on the way to my vacation and the horrible security experience on the way back. I seriously may never go to Chicago either after seeing the complete lack of organization and traumatizing personal invasion. I fly a lot for work and have never had such a horrible experience. I would really like to know how many terrorists are caught with these invasive searches and would love to know the justification for sticking your hands inside someone's pants and grabbing their privates after they have already gone through a metal detector AND the body scanner. Especially for someone who has already passed a federal background check to obtain pre-check status. Absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"
Pros: "The row I was in was spacious, I'm glad that I paid extra to move closer to front of plane and then paid extra to get an earlier boarding. I would recommend seat 13C for these types of flights. Legroom was good and I was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment program was a bit glitchy towards the end of my flight, but I slept inside. Maybe check all screens and such because it wasn't really registering when I would push the buttons."
Pros: "Seats quite comfortable. Crew ok."
Cons: "Pitiful food offering and no entertainment at all when on previous 1.5 hour AA flight choice of movies."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"
Pros: "we landed. flight was on time"
Cons: "Female flight attendants were rude. I think that if they would have smiled, their faces would have cracked. Even a complete stranger said to me, while waiting for the restroom, "I think that they hate us". One young male attendant was friendly and I believe that he was training. I fear for his training experience with this group of women. One of the lavatories was out of order {....on an international flight! Are you kidding!?!}. I think that they searched for the most antiquated plane that could limp across the ocean for this flight. Nine hours of pure discomfort. My poor 71 year old mother! Zero leg room. Tiny little screen for movies on the ceiling of the middle row. trays were not clean. We paid extra for our seats and wondered how bad the seats were for those that didn't. My mother and I determined that this was ranked as one of the worst flight experiences we have ever had. We are grateful for an amazing experience for our return flight or we would have reconsidered ever flying AA again."
Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Cons: "Lovely flight, but onboarding groups were a nightmare. Given the chaos, they started forcing bags to be checked early."
Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"
Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."
Pros: "Eventually we made it"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because a door wasn't working (old). Business class entertainment was a tablet that was collected an hour before we landed. Food was very bland."
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "The snacks are good and the seats are fairly comfortable. The entertainment options were nice too."
Cons: "But paying $8 for 30 mins of Wi-Fi is just outrageous. I did not, and will not ever pay that much for internet service. Additionally, my bag was asked to be checked at the gate. Mind you, my bag was a Airline Compliant design, that fit into the overhead bin sideways on the same sized plane going out to Chicago. If the flight were full, I would understand them being cautious about space, but the plane was barely over half full. It was just an annoying inconvenience."
Pros: "IFE"
Cons: "Delay 1st leg. Had to rebook to later flight. Later flight delayed. Then delayed again due to crew time out. Arrived 4 hours later than originally scheduled. Meaning public transportation could not be used to get into downtown final destination. Made an originally short trip even shorter."
Pros: "Routine flight. No issues on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paid extra for exit row seats, felt they were not worth the extra money. The extra legroom was great but the armrest did it move and I felt like I was sitting in a box."
Pros: "The crew was able to seat my husband and I together at the last minute as my husband has mobility issures"
Cons: "The crew seemed like they could care less about the passengers. Choice of either one snack bag of pretzels or a biscotti ~ very minimal. No headphones were offered for the movies."
Pros: "tv!"
Cons: "babies crying"
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "United flights always delay. Rushing to Airport with all the traffic delays only to be told the it will be delayed for 30 mins is unacceptable. This occurs every time I fly on United. Also reported that the power outlet is not functioning 3 times but nothing was done .. also huge delay getting out!!"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, terrible WiFi, not attentive flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding/unloading"
Cons: "If they had veggie options or any options for food when they arrived to my seat"
Cons: "Flight departed late"
Pros: "No food"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "The passengers next to me we're good."
Cons: "The fact that they only let you watch content on your device despite having a big screen in the headrest for DirecTV that was pay-only was not putting those screens to full use. Aso, why down 4-hour flight not get a meal, but only one tiny bag of pretzels?"
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Cons: "Everything was really not great. Air china had mediocre food that some of it wasn't bad but other was so so."
Pros: "Staff pleasant but inattentive"
Cons: "I'm so glad my work paid for this ticket. This was by far the worst first class experience I've had. Mediocre and very limited amount of food. WiFi was broken. Was delayed 3h.poir selection of movies. Old seats without leg rests. This was business class at best but with a first class price. Not good."
Cons: "I was at the wrong gate forgot to check the board. Almost missed the plane."
Pros: "The crew was fun, courteous, and very helpful. The complimentary refreshments were slightly better than those offered by most airlines."
Cons: "Our flight ended up being an hour delayed. The cabin during the flight was extremely cold, and the attendants finally gave my wife a blanket which was for first-class only because she was miserable. Also, the in-flight entertainment through their wi-if onboard was down for “maintenance” the entire trip."
Pros: "Seat was ok."
Cons: "Didn't find out about the delay until we were almost ready to board. No planning."
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Connecting United flight was delayed multiple times and several hours. So typical for United, this seems to happen every time. The booking did not mention United would be the carrier for connecting flight, or I would have booked elsewhere."
Cons: "Entertainment system Movie Streaming erratic"
Cons: "1 hour delay at the gate in the plane before we left Chicago, then when we arrived in San Francisco 1 hour on the tarmac waiting for our gate to open.."
Cons: "Between the rude gate agents and rude the flight attendants on the food and beverage service. Along with the wifi connectivity not working. I really found this flight way below United's standards."
Cons: "I paid for the entertainment and I had no sound. Flight attendant handed me a very full glass of orange juice from an awkward angle that I had to reach over my seat and back cussing me to spill a few drops on the passenger next to me. She wasn't thrilled and the attendant just walked off. I was really awkwardly embarrassed."
Pros: "All went seamlessly. Except for WiFi not working. Thank goodness for books!"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "The plane was large and roomy. The employees were great. If the amenities that they offered would have been working I could have possibly given five in every category."
Cons: "The wifi and power outlets didn't work."
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "20-30 minutes on the tarmac to take off. 30 minute wait after we arrived at the gate to have United staff attempt to line up the jetway with the cabin door. United is really firing on all cylinders lately"
Cons: "Pilot missed the landing. Staff uncourteous."
Pros: "New flight was direct fromChicago to Portland"
Cons: "12 hours late."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew did what they could and we're professional and curious, but there wasn't a ton to like about this flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Ok, that happens sometimes and it annoying but part of air travel. The real kicker was that once we were on the airplane, they announced that seatback entertainment and wifi were not working, so there was no entertainment on the 4hr+ flight. Additionally, because the seatback entertainment wasn't working, the ability to control your own reading light was disabled, so the cabin lights were left on the entire late-night flight, making sleeping quite difficult. I understand that sometimes these things happen, but there are ways to mitigate- the gate agent could've told us that there would be no seat back entertainment while we were waiting at the gate delayed so we could've downloaded something, but they chose not to for reasons I can only hypothesize. Combine all this with the terrible 3-4-3 seat configuration and you're left with a terrible experience. Will never take this particular flight from Chicago again. It was cramped and one of the worst flights I've taken in recent memory."
Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "From Gregory at the check in being rude and anything but welcoming, to seats in first class needing replaced, this was anything BUT a first class trip. This was my second time giving United a chance as I normally fly Delta. I don't think I'll make that mistake again. I understand a late night flight doesn't have a meal service, but snacks of chips and bananas is not my idea of how you should serve Firat Class passengers. I would have a hard time recommending anyone choose United as their airline. Time for an upgrade of not just the seats, but overall customer service."
Cons: "Well my flight was first delayed for 6 hours then once I tried to change my ticket this customer service woman was so rude and not helpful. Finally this other customer service woman nane Barbara helped me out and change my ticket. Still would never fly United."
Pros: "Very helpful desk attendant when flight was delayed to help me get later connecting flight. While flying and waiting on runway we received free direct tv which I really appreciated"
Pros: "The flight attendants at united make everything super easy. I'm an anxious person when I get to the airport but I know that if I have any questions the united airlines crew will take care of me. The pilots are amazing and airways land the plane smoothly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and I was concerned about missing my connection."
Cons: "Major maintenance delays made the 0600 flight take off late and missed our connection so had to go to a later flight, then that flight also got maintenance delays so our 8 hour trip took closer to 15 hours..."
Cons: "Didn't ride. Stuck in Chicago overnight."
Pros: "The wifi worked impressively well. However, the selection wasn't extensive. The crew did the best they could even though the plane was three hours late."
Cons: "The gate area forces passengers to line up in the walkway disrupting walking traffic in an already crowded Chicago airport."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Time listed was a 4.45 hour flight but they got us there in 4 instead! Makes a big difference when flying late at night."
Cons: "Ran out of overhead space so all of boarding group 5 had to check their bags. Normally not an issue, however it was a late night flight so adding extra wait time at the airport for luggage was not ideal. Entertainment buttons on my seat did not work either. Would have paid for the movies and TV selections but I couldn't even hit submit when I swiped my credit card."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Cons: "I read the entertainment material in the seat back pocket before takeoff. It said I could use a browser OR the app but then the movies all required the app to watch which I would have had to pay for internet access to download. Felt like a bait and switch."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great!"
Pros: "Nothing was good about this flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours for no good reason. The airline decided to assign a different aircraft, that's the only reason why. My husband had to go to work at 8am. We were supposed to land at 1am, instead we got home after 4am. On top of that Chicago airport had nothing open, only a Starbucks and we were starving. We also had a dog with us and he needed to have a bathrooms break due to the delay. Well we were told security was closed so if we excited the airport we wouldn't be able to come back in. So we went to the in-airport dog relief area, but a man that didn't speak English was cleaning it and told us it was closed. So what was our poor dog supposed to do in this horrible flight delay situation? It's just cruel."
Cons: "One flight was cancelled resulting in a 6 hour wait, the second flight was 2 hours late. Meat meals ran out quick resulting in a vegetarian only option for a lot of passengers"
Pros: "The flight staff were very professional, and the flight was smooth overall."
Cons: "We had a crying baby on our flight who was in a lot of pain, but was upset for the majority of the flight. It was also disappointing that we had to pay for in flight entertainment. I couldn't understand why you had to pay $7.99 for in flight entertainment when it is usually free on other airlines."
Cons: "I don't like when Direct TV is the entertainment option as it isn't free."
Pros: "I got a really good deal on the flight so I'm happy with my experience given the amount of money I saved. The crew is very professional and the flight was uneventful (a good thing)."
Cons: "I always wish flights could be more comfortable, especially when they are over 3 hours long. However, since I am unable to pay for the upgraded seats I realize this is a problem I will continue to have."
Pros: "Clean, timely, professional and friendly."
Cons: "A bit cramped in coach so not ideal for a red eye (want to rest) flight."
Pros: "The flight itself and the crew were fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by weather but still on time for us to make our connection. But boarding was delayed. Finally, the gate agent announced that they were repairing an overhead bin door. This took approximately twice the announced estimated time. Even so, we arrived at the gate with enough time to make the connection, which was 4 gates away. Did the crew ask people to let those with close connections get out first? No. Did the crew or gate agent communicate to other gates that we had arrived? No. We got to our connecting gate 6 minutes before the scheduled departure. They had closed the door and would not board us. Two people from our plane made it to the connection, so they knew we were coming. But 5 of us who were seated a little further back arrived minutes later. We made it onto a later flight. We also adopted an elderly passenger in a wheelchair, who would have been left by himself at the next gate for 3 hours by United if we had not taken him with us. We all got on the next flight, but only with some work."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was delayed but in regards the flight all was fine."
Pros: "Nice crew and easy boarding"
Cons: "Got bumped a lot having seat next to aile but still more comfy then first flight. Had more room to stretch out."
Pros: "departure & arrival terminal numbers from the first notice would be more helpful for foreigners."
Cons: "timely additional info"
Cons: "Lack of communication. Kept us belted down for s very long time. Lacked food service, lacked water service till the very end of the lock down. Then we were given the option to leave the plane as the doors were to be disarmed. But if we did the plane could get clearence and leave with no warning. I missed my connecting transportation, had to scrape my weekend plans, currently searching for a place to stay tonight while they locate my bag. I am cold and left my jacket in my bag. The United counter people are blaming it on the weather. I am sure everything was delayed by the laxadaysical baggage loader. The one person ( or lack of help loading the bags on the plane completely altered my travel plans. I requested assistance for hotel only to be told they are full when in fact several are vacant on the Internet. I should of videotaped the baggage loading in Canada, it would of went viral."
Pros: "Last minute flight, managed an aisle seat"
Cons: "My 2 fellow travelers were large people Not Fat just large. Seats seemed small the arm dividing our seat was raised for comfort."
Pros: "Seat was roomier than I expected for economy class. United did arrange for hotel, shuttle and food vouchers for those of us who missed our connections. The hotel (Biltmore in Santa Clara) was very nice. The plane crew did their best to help passengers with connections to catch, especially those with international ones."
Cons: "Delay at boarding: long LONG motionless line with no explanation to this large crowd of passengers led to delay in departure. Many missed connections, including mine. Later on, learned that some mechanical problem was the cause, so delay understandable, but someone should have made an announcement to the waiting passengers. Due to conventions in SF, we were told, we had to be put up in Santa Clara, down in Silicon Valley, an hour away. Expecting major morning traffic jams, we asked for a 5 am shuttle (plane leaving at 8, plus having to go thru security again). Since it took 2 hours from landing in SF at 10:30 pm to getting to the hotel, there was little time for sleep and no food available at the hotel at those hours. The shuttle drivers seemed confused, relying on GPS to guide them and speaking little English."

Nos cambiaron el vuelo unas horas antes, salíamos a las 6 de la tarde y lo adelantaron 10 horas !! Éramos 7 pasajeros y solo le avisaron a uno, de milagro nos enteramos, pero eso fue a las 11 de la noche del día anterior, fue muy complicado llegar al vuelo. Para rematar, antes de abordar del mostrador nos anunciaron que pasáramos al baño del aeropuerto por que los baños del avión no servían, lo cual era mentira por que durante el vuelo si se usaron, no se cual fue el motivo de ese comentario. No vuelvo a volar con Volaris nunca más, lo evitaré a menos que sea la única opción.

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly But people at checking in are really mean. Nasty people you should get another people with better trainings, etc. They were asking personal questions and abusing just because of their power. Not good at all, one on the worst experience"
Cons: "Personal at checking in. They have the worst attitude ever"
Pros: "Above average amount of leg room. Plane was very clean."
Cons: "Seats could have a bit more padding. Sitting becomes uncomfortable quickly."
Pros: "The flight was mostly empty"
Cons: "The flight attendant Paola was super rude. None of them had a pen even though they know every single passenger has to complete a customs form. Also, the gentleman at the counter was rude and said several expletives when I was boarding bc he had to do a little extra work to print out a boarding pass for my infant."
Pros: "On schedule A+, even ahead of schedule a few minutes."
Cons: "Very little legroom, not reclinable seats, no carry-on included, no snacks included for the 3+ hour flight. They should include more for the price."
Cons: "Everything needs to change! Worst airline worst service rude people. Horrific experience wish I got my money back."
Cons: "Flight was over sold and lost my seat"
Pros: "Great crew- fast boarding"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "The passengers sitting by me were very helpful. They put my carryon on the overhead rack for departure and arrival. The handicapped attendant was excellent when I arrived in Cancun and stayed with me until my transfer was found."
Cons: "I have traveled several times annually with Volaris for at last 13 years and this is the first time the service was so bad, virtually no service was offered at any time. Everything seemed disorganized. No food was offered or even a glass of water. I am 86 years old and travel handicapped all over the world with excellent service. I was shocked that I as dumped in a seat at the Volaris gate from the wheel chair by the attendant; and, who never returned to help me board the plane. I made the mistake of tipping him well. No ramp was available and I had to beg for help with my carryon as I have to hold on with both hands to go up the stairs. Cancun’s attendant for handicapped was much better and truly helped me and stayed with me until my transfer was found. Tijuana’s airport service was horrible."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "Volaris's system apparently was malfunctioning that prevented anyone from checking in online or through any app which caused stress the day before travel. Even worse, they couldnt even check in at the gate and had to fill out forms by hand, which caused a 2 hours delay!"
Pros: "Affordability, that's about all that is good with Volaris. Everything else is either bad or mediocre."
Cons: "Don't board passengers onto the aircraft until it is ready for passengers. Both direction (OAK to MEX and MEX to OAK), we were boarded onto a hot (not aconditioned) aircraft for at least 15 minutes before the A/C is turned on. In addition, boarding were completed and all passengers were sitting in the aircraft for over an hour before it started the taxis to the run way....why board passengers so early? At least turn on the A/C and let the cabin cool down before boarding passengers."
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, plane was quiet!"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process, with buses from the terminal to the flight ..."
Pros: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage when I pick it up"
Pros: "At least they keep you informed of the delays"
Cons: "Being on time"
Cons: "Everything was good. No problems or complaints"
Pros: "Timeliness its great to be on time."
Cons: "The seats it’s too cramped, also paying 4 dollars for a water is ridiculous and to top things off children crying the whole flight I rather spend my money on another airline"
Pros: "Volaris did good, is you who did terrible, I make the reservation since March and even a day before the trip you told all is good, the night before I found reservation was canceled since March, I had to buy new tickets old prices $87, new prices $500.$410 extra dollars Because of you"
Cons: "Check with the airline the status of every reservation in a daily basis and let me know that you can’t fulfill the contract"
Cons: "Give the drinks at least for free"
Pros: "They didn’t let me on"
Cons: "They could’ve timed the connection better so I didn’t miss my flight"
Pros: "The flight was punctual."
Cons: "The crew was to loud and annoying. I got a window seat without a window and was not notified (Seat 30F). If there was mention of no window seat I would have purchased a window seat."
Cons: "Late boarding, late landing but claim on time."
Pros: "Good no-frills airlines"
Cons: "For this type of airline – nothing"
Pros: "Todo."
Cons: "vender mas cervesa"
Pros: "On time due to excessive scheduled flight times"
Cons: "Boarding system , expensive and low quality food for sale on board, entertainment on board, unhelpful stewardess staff, deplaning system keep us waiting for half an hour to open the airplane door at the Cancun airport gate"
Cons: "gates changed multiple times, got different information from different people. had to shuttle to the plane. over an hour delayed but no notifications of delay were ever updated"
Pros: "The plane was great and so was the flight. I like that they save the overhead compartments for the people who are sitting in those seats."
Cons: "It would be good to be able to charge my cell phone on board"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never ever am fliying with volaris airlines they charge for everything for seats for food and service horrible they didnt let me carry my little ourse i had on the side like really bad experience"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professionnal"
Cons: "Boarding was late and messy. Seats are narrow. I guess I got what I paid for. The delayed arrival put us into JFK at nearly 3am. No public transportation available"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I understand this is a cheap airline. However their flow to measure every bag is terrible. Each passenger with a carry on has to line up to get a sticker. Then a second line to board the plane. It was schedule to leave 7.09 am departed at 8 am. I really do not like this airline but was the only available option"
Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Web check in was super easy, the flight was on time and all the crew was really nice."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks or food, no entertainment on board."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No TSA Pre Dirty plane Rude staff"
Pros: "No water you have to pay"
Cons: "For everything they not given you a glass of water"
Pros: "that i had a entire row for myself"
Cons: "they dont add the global entry number on your ticket like other airlines, therefore you cant get TSA pre check. The flight was delayed around 40 mins. When we got there, the bags took 30 mins to come out. There was a huge fight in the baggage claim from the flight before from NY. They wouldnt get their baggage and we were stalled."
Cons: "Super mala, organización, aviones pequeños"
Cons: "Only snack options during my flight, was hoping to buy a meal."
Cons: "Tried to pre check a day before the flight using Volaris app and wasn't able to complete the process, as the app was timing out and it was forcing me to buy a seat in the plan, which I wasn't interested in. It seems to me that the airline is trying to nickel and dime you in every opportunity they have as they wanted to charge us 50 USD extra as our carry on luggage was under the 22 LB restriction but our backpack added 2 pounds. I have never seen an airline that is weighting each and every passengers backs and purses during the boarding process to see how much more money they can get per flight. Also, I found it kind of funny that after take off the flight attendants were selling the empty seats in the front which didn't had more leg room (not first class) but were just closer to the cabin. You are already charging for sodas, CAN YOU JUST STOP THERE?"
Pros: "Loved that there was food offers . We were so hungry. We had been awake for 24 hours an we hadn’t eaten for hours and hours ."
Cons: "I didnt Know there was a menu option. At start of flight no one mentioned there was a menu for food choice . I saw It after our meals were handed out . My kids got a sandwich that was Jalepeno style sauce . It was too spicy for them to eat. If i had Known by the flight attendants (by them re assuring i knew Of the spice on the sandwich ) or by being told ,about the menu earlier , I wouldnt Have ordered it . That’s the only negative thing to say . Cuz their sandwich was really spicy ."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Janet the flight attendant was specially rude, like all the crew Its too bad"
Cons: "No legroom Very, very warm in the cabin"
Pros: "Attention"
Pros: "Attention"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and efficiently. I think they offered soft drinks or snacks but I was asleep."
Cons: "The fact that I was unable to use TSA Pre-Check on this airline."
Pros: "Punctuality, friendly flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding was an unorganized free-for-all"
Pros: "Everything done properly, not a single flaw."
Pros: "Vacations food dancing and great time whit the family"
Pros: "Good on time"
